Phone Call Hinting at “Big News” Came Prior To Kennedy Assassination http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9196-Phone-Call-Hinting-at-“Big-News”-Came-Prior-To-Kennedy-Assassination Just minutes before President Kennedy was assassinated, a newspaper in Britain was tipped off to “some big news” about to go down in the U.S. In a memo to the FBI director, it was revealed that a reporter with Cambridge News was contacted anonymously by a phone caller. “The caller said only that the Cambridge News reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news and then hung up.” “After the word of the president’s death was received the reporter informed the Cambridge police of the anonymous call and the police informed MI-5.” MI-5 determined “that the call was made about 25 minutes before Kennedy was shot.” The report says, “The Cambridge reporter had never received a call of this kind before and MI-5 state that he is knows to them as a sound and loyal person with no security record.” The memo came to light in the latest batch of documents relating to the assassination of President Kennedy. The current staff at the Cambridge News has no record of who took the call. The paper said that it was contacting people who worked at the newspaper back in the 1960s.

Spanish Separatists Declare Independence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9195-Spanish-Separatists-Declare-Independence Separatists in the Catalan parliament voted to declare their independence from Spain on Friday. “We shall constitute the Catalan Republic as an independent, and sovereign, democratic and social state of law.” The vote was 70 to 10. Many of the supporters of remaining with Spain boycotted the vote. Spain’s parliament is moving towards seizing control of Catalan. It plans to remove regional leaders from office and install their own bureaucrats loyal to Spain. The European Union has endorsed the position of the Spanish government and has “already backed the hardline stance of Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy.” EU spokesman Mina Andrea said, “We have nothing to add to what we said.” Prime Minister Rajoy tweeted, “The rule of law will restore legality in Catalonia.” “What is being debated here is whether Spain, regarding an issue that affects its stability and its integrity, has the right to defend itself by making use of the constitution and the laws,” Rajoy told Spanish senators. Prosecutors plan to arrest and charge Catalan’s president and his government with rebellion. He could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

“Unsafe” Church Removes Plaques; Now Church Is Safe http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9194-“Unsafe”-Church-Removes-Plaques;-Now-Church-Is-Safe An Episcopal church in Alexandria, Virginia has voted to remove plaques memorializing two notable past individuals, namely George Washington and Robert E. Lee. The first president and the confederate general were both at one time members of the church. The unanimous decision is designed to make the church more welcoming. In a letter addressed to members, the vestry announced, “The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome. Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.” The letter explained that in today’s era, the issue of slavery is understood differently than it was understood at the time of the country’s founding. Because of that, change in understanding, the church cannot give the proper context and explanation. “Because the sanctuary is a worship space, not a museum, there is no appropriate way to inform visitors about the history of the plaques or to provide additional context except for the in-person tours provided by our docents.”

Tech Companies Sign Amicus Brief in Wedding Cake Case http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9193-Tech-Companies-Sign-Amicus-Brief-in-Wedding-Cake-Case Some large tech companies in Silicon Valley plan to submit an amicus brief asking the court to rule that a Christian who refuses to bake a cake for homosexual couples is anti-LGBT discrimination. Yelp, Apple, and PayPal plan to sign the brief. More companies are likely to sign the brief. PayPal issued a statement saying, “PayPal is committed to preserving human rights and advancing the principles of inclusion and equality that are at the core of our values.” “We seek to defend against actions that violate our values, which is why we are signing this amicus brief with other likeminded companies seeking to uphold critical protections against discrimination.” The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case of “a baker who declined to custom-design a wedding cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage because his religion teaches that marriage is only between a man and woman.” Alternatively, the baker did offer to sell the couple a cake that was already made. He has declined to custom design many cakes for causes and events with which he disagrees.

Orin Hatch Retirement Rumors Grow http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9192-Orin-Hatch-Retirement-Rumors-Grow Senator Orin Hatch of Utah may retire at the end of his current term which expires in early January 2019. A spokesman for Senator Hatch “did not outright deny the report.” “Senator Hatch is focused on leading the Senate’s efforts to pass historic tax reform, confirming strong judges to courts around the country, and continuing to fight through the gridlock to deliver results for Utah. He has not made a final decision about whether or not to seek reelection, but plans to by the end of the year.” A possible candidate to replace Hatch would be former presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. “Sources close to both men said plans have already been set in motion for Hatch to retire and for Romney to run, but they cautioned that the timing of the announcements has not yet been finalized, and that either man could still change his mind.” Romney is an establishment Republican. He governed Massachusetts as a liberal Republican, supporting abortion. During the presidential campaign, Romney spoke out in opposition to President Trump. Considering Steve Bannon’s pledge to oppose establishment candidates, Romney will likely face strong opposition from conservatives.

Special Council May Have Sealed Indictment http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9191-Special-Council-May-Have-Sealed-Indictment Prosecutors warned Paul Manafort to expect an indictment at some point. He was told this while federal agents were raiding his house in July. Investigators seized computers, documents, and other evidence during their raid. Manafort was dismissed from the Trump campaign last summer. Investigators have been probing Manafort’s lobbying business and other business transactions. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/351268-... Mueller was given wide latitude to investigate “any matters that may arise form the probe into Russian interference.” Friday evening, CNN indicated that a grand jury brought charges against someone in the Russia investigation. The charges are sealed and won’t be opened until the individual is brought into court. Attorney’s working on the investigation “were seen entering the courthouse where the grand jury is convened.” But no announcement was made. CNN has been labeled fake news. So it may be possible their report is incorrect.

Democrats Debating Legislative Priorities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9190--Democrats-Debating-Legislative-Priorities Although House Democrats are in the minority, they are looking at the budget bill as a vehicle through which to fund their agenda items. Democrats want to push immigration and health care legislation. Democrats will have to sort through the competing interests of members to figure out what to push and what can be left to “fall by the wayside.” According to Representative Nita Lowey, “What’s a very important to one person may be a minor issue to someone else. So we have to listen to everyone and move the process.” Democratic leadership will push for a solution relating to the DACA program. Several hundred thousand people were brought to the U.S. as children and have no way to become legal. President Trump gave Congress until March to resolve the issue. Democrats also want to fund the Children’s health Insurance Program as well as restoring the funding to health insurance companies to avoid “significant increases in health-care premiums.”

Trump Campaign Company Reached Out to WikiLeaks for Clinton Emails http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9189-Trump-Campaign-Company-Reached-Out-to-WikiLeaks-for-Clinton-Emails A data mining and analysis company, Cambridge Analytica, reportedly reached out to Julian Assange of WikiLeaks regarding the thousands of mission Hillary Clinton emails. The Trump campaign paid $5.9 million dollars to Cambridge Analytica for “data managements services between 2015 and 2016.” The company is owned in part by billionaire Robert Mercer, a supporter of President Trump. The company “mines online data in order to target potential voters with personalized political messaging.” The reported contact between the CEO of the company and Julian Assange took place prior to the election. The House Intelligence Committee has asked for information from Cambridge Analytica. The Trump campaign issued a statement on Wednesday crediting the Republican National Committee as its “main source for data analytics” in 2016. Another source said that the tools that Cambridge Analytica produced “didn’t have any proof that they worked.” The company released a statement in early October in which it claimed a “prominent role” with the Trump campaign. A spokesman for WikiLeaks confirmed that “a request for information from Cambridge Analytica was rejected.”

JFK Assassination Documents Release Coming With Few Redactions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9188-JFK-Assassination-Documents-Release-Coming-With-Few-Redactions After withholding documents relating to the assassination of President Kennedy, President Trump indicated that he will push for the release of the remaining documents so as “to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest.” "I will be releasing ALL JFK files other than the names and addresses of any mentioned person who is still living," the president tweeted. "I am doing this for reasons of full disclosure, transparency and in order to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest," he continued. The White House plans to release more documents on a “rolling basis over the next six months.” Prior to the release, the president indicated that he planned to release all the documents unless any agencies raised objections. The CIA and FBI issued “national security concerns” which effectively blocked the release in its entirety. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said, “We are working this weekend. We are going to be working every way possible to expedite the production of these documents as completely as possible and they will be virtually, completely revealed from the FBI files.”

Original Funder of Fusion GPS Opposition Research Revealed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9187-Original-Funder-of-Fusion-GPS-Opposition-Research-Revealed Washington Free Beacon attorneys told the House Intelligence Committee on Friday that it had funded the original “anti-Trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS.” The Free Beacon supported the research from 2015 through the spring of 2016. Attorneys said that the opposition research included “research into multiple Republican candidates, not just front-runner Donald Trump.” The Free Beacon stresses that when it was funding the opposition research, it “had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steel.“ The Free Beacon also said that it did not “have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton Campaign.” The funder of the Washington Free Beacon is billionaire Paul Singer. Singer opposed Trump doing the time the Beacon was funding the research.

Lots of Democrats Running in 2020 http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9186-Lots-of-Democrats-Running-in-2020 Tom Perez, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said that he expects there will be a “double-digit number of candidates” who run in the primaries for the 2020 Democratic nominating process. By having a large number of candidates running, Perez hopes to put to bed the myth that Democrats can’t field a “bench of presidential candidates.” "I would welcome that because I hear people say we don't have a bench of presidential candidates, and I could not agree with that more.” Perez calls the primary debate “spectacular.” “My job is to make sure the paling field is level.” Currently the expected Democratic roster includes Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Rim Ryan. Not mentioned was Bernie Sanders. The Vermont senator is not a Democrat. After the election, he changed his party affiliation back to independent. If he does run, Senator Sanders has the interest of motivated college students and could lead the field. Perez has disclaimed any knowledge of what DNC officials and Clinton Campaign officials knew or did with respect to the funding of the dossier on candidate Trump.

President Trump Claims Credit For Discrediting Media http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9185-President-Trump-Claims-Credit-For-Discrediting-Media President Trump tweaked the media by boasting how he’d reduced “public trust in the mainstream media” since his campaign began. He said that he’s “proud” of having convinced “people how fake it is.” “I've really started this whole fake news thing,” said Trump. The president told Lou Dobbs that the media “is so dishonest.” “What could be more fake than CBS and NBC and ABC and CSS what you look at some of these stories?” He said that during the campaign he was treated “very unfairly” by the press and that it did not get any better after the election. In fact, “they got much worse.” "If you look at the level of approval of … general media, if you look at it from the day I started running to now, I'm so proud that I've been able to convince people how fake it is, because it has taken a nosedive." He went on to thank Fox news saying, “Fox has treated me fairly. And I don’t mean good, but they’ve treated me fairly. I don’t want to be treated good. I just want to be treated fairly.”

Pakistan Told To Clean House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9184--Pakistan-Told-To-Clean-House Secretary of State Tillerson met with India’s External Affairs Minister and called upon Pakistan to “take a tougher line on terror during a joint news conference in New Delhi.” Tillerson said, “In our discussions with Pakistani leadership yesterday in Islamabad we had a very open, frank exchange around the concerns the United States shares with other regional partners and allies – India, but also Afghanistan – that there are too many terrorist organizations that find a safe place in Pakistan from which to conduct their operations and attacks against other countries.” After Osama Bin Laden was found in Pakistan, relations between Washington and Islamabad have become strained. Tillerson told Pakistan that the long-term stability and security of the the Pakistani government is at stake. ”As these terrorist organizations have enlarged their numbers and have enlarged their strength and their capability within Pakistan’s borders, this can lead to a threat to Pakistan’s own stability.” By seeking stronger ties with India, the United States will ensure that it still has a friend in South Asia regardless what happens to Pakistan.

Voting Begins In Kenya’s Disputed Elections http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9183-Voting-Begins-In-Kenya’s-Disputed-Elections Kenya’s rerun of the presidential elections began on Thursday. Opposition supporters of Mr. Odinga urged a boycott. Of Kenya’s 47 counties, five reported violence. Voting was postponed until a later time. Four people were killed. Roads were blocked in Kisumu and fires were set. 25 people were injured as they confronted police and many suffered gunshot injuries. The elections of August 8 were nullified by the country’s Supreme Court. The Court cited “illegalities and irregularities.” Both parties agreed to abide by the decision and rerun the election. President Kenyatta said, “What we have is a problem of tribalism, and tribalism is an issue that we must continue to deal with and fight with as we continue to develop our country.” In 2007, more than 1,000 people were killed in ethnic violence. The Kenyan election pits Mr. Kenyatta, the son of the country’s founder, against Mr. Odinga. The candidates represent the two largest tribes in Kenya. Mr. Kenyatta is a Kikuyu and Mr. Odinga is a Luo. There is a lot of hatred between the two tribes. The Kikuyu’s are the entrepreneurial class and own many of the businesses in the country. The Luo tribe is more socialistic and pushes for more government. Former President Obama is of Luo descent, if the stories of his Kenyan heritage are true.

Pentagon Urges Change to Selective Service Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9182-Pentagon-Urges-Change-to-Selective-Service-Law The Pentagon is recommending “that women be required to register for the draft to boost military enrollment.” The Pentagon report said, “It appears that, for the most part, expanding registration for the draft to include women would enhance further the benefits presently associated with the Selective Service System.” The Selective Service System currently registers all males 18 to 25. In the event of war, they could be pressed into military service. Under former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, the military began allowing “women to serve in combat roles.” The decision to allow women into combat roles then provoked the military to start thinking about requiring women to register for the draft. The Pentagon report can only suggest a change to the law. Congress would have to amend the current law to require women to register for the draft. In 2016, Congress called for a “yearly review of the draft system” but did not amend it to require registration of women.

DNC Chairman Can’t Wish Away The Constitution http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9181--DNC-Chairman-Can’t-Wish-Away-The-Constitution Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez asserted, “the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution. It doesn’t have to be there.” The chairman made the false statement while lecturing at Indiana University Law School. The Constitution in fact does outline the electoral process by which the president of the United States is chosen. And the Constitution calls for Electors to be appointed. According to Article II, “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.” The Electoral College is a check on direct democracy. Most of the time the Electoral College does follow the popular vote. Yet there have been a handful of times where the candidate with a majority of popular votes loses to the winner of the Electoral College. Hillary Clinton knew that she had to win a majority of Electors. She failed to put together a winning strategy. The system did not fail Hillary Clinton or the voters. It worked exactly the way the founders intended.

Bitter Clinger http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9180-Bitter-Clinger The former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is saying, “I’m with her.” The “her” being Hillary Clinton. Although it’s been demonstrated that the dossier on Trump was funded by the Clinton campaign and has lost whatever remaining credibility it once had, James Clapper remains a steadfast bitter clinger. According to Clapper, “With respect to the dossier itself, the key thing is it doesn’t matter who paid for it. It’s what the dossier said and the extent to which it’s corroborated or not.” “In other words,” to quote a recent former Secretary of State, “What Difference Does It Make?” In an interview with CNN, Clapper called for an audit trail apparently just to make sure that the DNC and Hillary for America really did fund the production of the dossier. Clapper told his CNN host that he believes investigators in the intelligence community were “able to validate portions of the dossier“ and should not be completely dismissed.

Spain Headed for Chaos http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9179-Spain-Headed-for-Chaos The president of Catalonia said that Catalan’s parliament will decided whether or not to approve a declaration of independence from Spain. The announcement on the independence decision appears to be a reversal of what the president was expected to do. He’d been expected to “call an early election in the region to avoid Spain’s takeover of the Catalan government.” However, the president was not certain that the Spanish government would allow such a vote. He could not get assurances that Spain’s government would not go ahead with a takeover of Catalan’s government. “I didn’t get a responsible answer from the Spanish government, which has instead used this option to add to the tension,” said the president. Catalan’s parliament has a small majority of separatists. They are expected to vote on Friday on the question of independence. At the same time, “the Spanish Senate is expected to approve emergency measures to impose Madrid’s direct rule on Catalonia.” Saturday could see the Catalan region to fall into social and economic chaos.

FBI Agrees To Turn Over Documents Relating to Dossier http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9178-FBI-Agrees-To-Turn-Over-Documents-Relating-to-Dossier In an interview on Wednesday, Speaker Ryan accused the FBI of “foot-dragging” and “stonewalling.” Congress has repeatedly, for months, sought answers and documents related to the dossier showing Donald Trump in a terrible light. On Thursday, Speaker Ryan announced that the FBI had contacted his office and “informed us that they will comply with our document requests, and that they will provide the documents that Congress has been asking for by next week.” The funding for the dossier was exposed this week after the law firm handling legal work for the Clinton campaign released Fusion GPS from its privacy agreement. The funding came from the Clinton campaign and flowed through the campaign’s legal firm. The campaign’s FEC filings did not disclose the expenditure as for research. It hid the funding under “legal services.” The investigating committees in Congress went to court two weeks ago to demand that two years worth of bank records for Fusion GPS be turned over to Congress. Congress will now investigate the FBI’s assessment of credibility of the dossier. As well as the role that the dossier played in the FBI’s decision to seek a FISA warrant to investigate the Trump campaign in the months and weeks leading up to the election.

The Curious Case of Jesus Campos http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9177-The-Curious-Case-of-Jesus-Campos The security guard who reportedly was shot in the leg by Stephen Paddock during the October 1 massacre in Las Vegas, went to Mexico “just days after” the horrific shooting. “Customs and Border Patrol documents [show] that [Jesus] Campos apparently crossed the border into Mexico days after the Vegas massacre.” He went through the same border crossing in January. The crossing raises a host of questions. “Why would the FBI allow a material witness to flee the country during an ongoing investigation?” “If Campos was shot, why [or] how did he spend hours in a car on a road trip to Mexico rather [than] recuperating in a hospital bed”? And finally, “if this was a ‘pre-planned’ visit, as his union suggests, then why did investigators seem so baffled by his disappearance?” Las Vegas investigators have not been clear on the timeline of events. Events have been laid out as happening at a particular time only to be changed significantly in later press conferences. The longer law enforcement remains unclear, the faster conspiracy theories will get planted, take root, and further obfuscate the entire shooting.

50 Years of JFK Secrets . . . Remain Secret http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9176--50-Years-of-JFK-Secrets-.-.-.-Remain-Secret The Deep State prevailed over Donald Trump’s better sense to throw open the doors to the vault of remaining secret documents relating to the assassination of President Kennedy. “Following last-minute recommendations of his national security agencies that some of the records be redacted,” President Trump allowed a mere 2,800 documents relating to the assassination to be released on Thursday. Although the deadline for releasing the documents has been on the books since 1992, and the date was well known, agencies of the Deep State were given another six months to “figure out what they want redacted.” A White House official said, “There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done.” Reportedly, “Some of the worry seems to center around documents created in the 1990s, when the congressional committee was crafting the legislation setting Thursday as the release date.” According to Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia, “The CIA wants some of the names in the documents redacted, and some of the paragraphs they say reveal the names of sources or theirs use by the CIA.”

Chinese President Increases Persecution of Religious Groups http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9174-Chinese-President-Increases-Persecution-of-Religious-Groups A report compiled by Chinese human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng details the breadth and “intensity of religious persecution that continues in” China. The report was translated by ChinaAid and Christian Solidarity Worldwide. According to the report, the Chinese government under President Xi has “violently” suppressed “religious groups, primarily Christians and practitioners of Falun Gong.” “The external environment for religious faith hit a new low in 2016 after 30 years of suppression,” wrote Gao Zhisheng. "Since Xi Jinping came to power, the CPC's general suppression of Christianity, with a particular focus on individual cases, has become a new and distinctive trend, which has been even more obvious in the past year.” Gao Zhisheng documented the suppression of Christianity. The property of Christians has been sized and destroyed. “In 2016, a pastor and his wife were buried alive in Henan [province] while protesting against their church being forcibly possessed. Adherents to Falun Gong “have been abducted, forcibly disappeared, framed, and tortured,” according to the report. Bob Fu of ChinaAid said, “We urge President Trump to speak to Chinese leaders about this deteriorating human rights situation and raise the case of Gao and other prisoners of conscience when he visits China in early November.”

Trump Releases JFK Assassination Documents http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9173-Trump-Releases-JFK-Assassination-Documents President Donald Trump has ordered the release to the public of hundreds of documents related to the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 in Dallas, Texas. The documents may shed light on what actually happened and put to rest the numerous conspiracy theories that have arisen over the years.

These theories generally deny the official conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and claim that everyone from J. Edgar Hoover to Fidel Castro were responsible for the death of the president. The Russians were also blamed as was the Mafia and the CIA. Now, the truth may finally come to light about the assassination.

Disney Continues to Push Leftist Agenda http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9172-Disney-Continues-to-Push-Leftist-Agenda The once iconic family oriented Disney Corporation that under the leadership of its founder Walt Disney stood up for traditional American values has been moving to the left for years. The Disney parks begin holding gay pride days that drove off many traditional families because the gays were allowed to openly engage in sex acts in full view of other park visitors.

Disney has continued to push its liberal agenda by purchasing ABC News that was already a left leaning propaganda organ and ESPN that was also turned into a bastion for liberal opinion. Now, Disney is announcing that on its television channel it will introduce its first gay character in one of its programs designed for children.

Paddock Mystery Only Deepens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9171-Paddock-Mystery-Only-Deepens Investigators looking for the motive of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock are not only not finding any answers, but they see the mystery getting worse. There were several laptop computers in his hotel room at Mandalay Bay and one of them had the hard drive removed and the police have no idea when it was removed or where it is.

Other things don’t add up like the fact that housekeepers were in Paddock’s room during most of his stay and saw no sign of weapons, and on at least one occasion he ordered room service and again there was no sign of weapons. In other words, there is still nothing to help police find a motive or understand what Paddock did in the room prior to the shooting.

Gowdy Wants Information About FBI Reliance on Dossier http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9170-Gowdy-Wants-Information-About-FBI-Reliance-on-Dossier Representative Trey Gowdy wants to know if the FBI was relying on the false information in the Trump dossier when it initiated the investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The allegations contained in the dossier have all been proven false and if the FBI and/or the Department of Justice relied on it, then the investigation is a waste of time and resources.

So far, Gowdy has not gotten any response to his request for information from the FBI or DOJ and that is raising even more questions. Gowdy has said he will use Congressional subpoena power if necessary.

Major Networks Ignoring Uranium Story http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9169-Major-Networks-Ignoring-Uranium-Story It has been over a week since reporters for The Hill broke a bombshell story that involved the Russian use of spies, bribery, extortion, kickbacks, and money laundering to get a sweetheart deal giving Russia control over 20% of U.S, uranium. This would seem to be a story that the mainstream media would be all over, yet all of the major networks except FOX News have virtually ignored the story,

The reason is obvious, the story also involves the Clintons, their foundation, and possibly other high government officials in the Obama administration including Eric Holder and James Comey.

Democrats Say Dossier Story in No Big Deal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9168-Democrats-Say-Dossier-Story-in-No-Big-Deal For months democrats in Congress and the media have been pushing the narrative that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians that resulted in the presidential election being stolen from Hillary Clinton. After investigations by Congressional committees, the FBI, and Robert Mueller it appears that nothing has been uncovered to prove any of the allegations.

However, now that real collusion between the Democrats and the Russians regarding the fake Trump dossier has been uncovered, the Democrats are saying it was opposition research. In fact, the dossier was a total fabrication. That is not research, that is fraud.

Investigators Can’t Find Las Vegas Shooter’s Hard Drive http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9167-Investigators-Can’t-Find-Las-Vegas-Shooter’s-Hard-Drive The investigation into the mass shooting in Las Vegas has turned up the fact that Stephen Paddock’s computer is missing its hard drive. Investigators do not know where it has gone. There is evidence that Paddock bought software that erased files from the hard drive. But without the drive, investigators cannot confirm their idea. Paddock apparently did not leave many digital traces for authorities to follow. In the Virginia Tech mass shooting, the shooter “took the hard drive out of his computer and discarded his cellphone before” murdering 32 people. Police never recovered them. So far investigators have been unable to find a motive for Paddock’s attack. Authorities are trying to piece together his life as they look for clues. Paddock’s brother was arrested for possession of child pornography on Wednesday. The investigation reportedly was underway “long before Stephen opened fire on the concertgoers.”

White House Wants To Raise Gas Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9166-White-House-Wants-To-Raise-Gas-Taxes The Trump administration is considering hiking the federal gasoline tax by seven cents a gallon so as to pay for the administration’s infrastructure program. The president’s economic adviser told a group of moderate Republicans that the vote to increase the gasoline tax would take place early in 2018. Republicans have been unwilling to use the current debate on tax reform “to set aside some money for infrastructure.” The federal gasoline tax is currently set at 18.4 center per gallon and at 24.4 cents per gallon of diesel fuel. The money raised from the fuel tax is earmarked for the Highway Trust Fund. The fund “provides money for road construction and other transportation projects across the country. . . “ As cars have overall become more fuel efficient, the fund has not had the influx of money needed to keep up with infrastructure expenses. This a classic example of Congress trying to engineer what it thinks is good for society but then failing to consider what the consequences are going to be. Congress would be far better to stay out of setting mileage rates and let the free market determine how best to serve consumers. Conservatives in Congress are expected to oppose legislation that would raise the fuel tax.

FBI Informant Released From Confidentiality Agreement http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9165-FBI-Informant-Released-From-Confidentiality-Agreement The FBI informant who was forced to sign a confidentiality agreement regarding what he knew about the sale of Uranium One to the Russian Rosatom company has been released from a confidentiality agreement. The informant’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, received and official letter from the FBI “saying it no longer had any reason to ask the informant to keep his work confidential.” Toensing said of her client, “He is now able to and willing to talk with the congressional committees seeking his testimony . . . “ According to Toensing her client will testify “about his work uncovering the Russian nuclear bribery case and the efforts he witnessed by Moscow to gain influence with the Clintons in hopes of winning favorable uranium decision from the Obama administration.” Toensing plans to work with lawmakers to keep her client’s identity confidential. Russia’s Tenex company’s chief executive in the United States was found guilty of a bribery scheme that compromised “an American trucking company that shipped uranium for Russia.” Congress was not notified about the bribery scandal during the FBI investigation in 2014.

States Lose In Attempt To Force Subsidy Payments to Continue http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9164-States-Lose-In-Attempt-To-Force-Subsidy-Payments-to-Continue A federal judge in California denied an emergency motion that would have required the Trump administration to continue making payments to insurers. The judge pointed out that California took steps to mitigate any problems. “To be sure, the absence of money for CSR payments does not seem to be causing health care reform to come crumbling down,” wrote District Judge Vince Chhabria. Insurers in California added “a surcharge to the mid-level silver plans, which increases the amount of tax credit subsidies available.” The judge ruled that “the ability of states to act in advance and shield consumers undercuts the argument that people will face higher premiums because the cost-sharing payments are ending.” 18 states joined in the California motion to prevent the subsidies from being halted. Congress has never appropriated the funding of subsidy payments to insurers. The Obama administration was making them. Congress sued and won a ruling that found the Obama administration’s payments to insurers to be illegal. So far Congress has not acted to restore the subsidy payments.

ACLU Giddy Over Death of Unborn Child http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9163-ACLU-Giddy-Over-Death-of-Unborn-Child A 17-year old illegal immigrant in federal immigration custody wanted to abort her 16-week old unborn child. She sued in federal court. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling supporting the woman’s right to kill her unborn child. She was immediately carted off to an abortuary. An 16-week unborn child weighs approximately 3 ½ ounces and is about 4 ½ inches long. The child has begun to grow toenails. The baby’s heart pumps “about 25 quarts of blood each day” and will increase as the baby continues to grow. The ACLU celebrated on Twitter writing, “BREAKING: Justice prevailed today for Jane Doe. She was able to get an abortion early this morning. #JusticeforJane” There was no justice for the unborn child. The woman issued a statement through the ACLU saying, “People I don’t even know are trying to make me change my mind. I made my decision and that is between me and God.” The Trump administration argued that Jane Doe had viable options other than abortion such as voluntarily leaving the country or “being placed in the custody of a sponsor.”

Lawmakers Plan Votes to Stop Aborted Fetal Tissue Sales http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9162-Lawmakers-Plan-Votes-to-Stop-Aborted-Fetal-Tissue-Sales Lawmakers in Wisconsin are attempting to pass legislation that “would ban the sale of aborted fetal tissue and tighten regulations on fetal remains restrictions.” Leaders in Wisconsin’s House believe they have the votes to pass the legislation and that it would likely pass in the Senate. The Senate plans to take up the legislation in November. “Those of us up here believe that when a child is aborted, the last thing that needs to be done to the dignity of that human life is to be shipped off, sliced up and put into test tubes and Petri dishes. When it comes to the integrity of an aborted fetus, there really is no compromise,” said Representative Kleefisch. The company, Cures For Tomorrow, opposes the legislation saying, “The bill would reach into labs and end ongoing, pioneering research on heart disease, cancer, infectious disease, and neurological and developmental disorders.” Wisconsin Family Action’s said, “We don’t oppose research at all. What we want is research done using ethical materials done in an ethical way.” The legislation does not impose criminal penalties for violating the law. But they would impose civil forfeitures.

Iran Taking Steps To Leave Nuclear Agreement http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9161-Iran-Taking-Steps-To-Leave-Nuclear-Agreement Iran is taking steps to blame the United States for the breakdown of the nuclear agreement. Iran has identified what it claims are 18 instances of the United States violating the agreement. Iran sent the leaders of the European Union “a plethora of information recounting what it claims are 18 separate violations of the deal by the United States.” The United States is trying to walk a thin line by trying to stay in the nuclear agreement but also strengthen it so as to force Iran to comply with the spirit of the agreement. The Trump administration wants to impose sanctions on Iran “for its ballistic missile program and regional support of terrorism.” A spokesman for the State Department said, “The United States continues to meet its commitments under the JCPOA and will hold Iran strictly accountable for its commitments.” A congressional adviser said, “Iran was never going to stay in the deal the full time. They were going to cheat as much as they could, pocket as much as they could, and then bail as soon as anyone tried to enforce the deal.”

Virginia Democrats Equate Republican Candidate With White Supremacists http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9160-Virginia-Democrats-Equate-Republican-Candidate-With-White-Supremacists Democrat Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam released a mailer showing a picture of President Trump and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie superimposed on a photo of white nationalists marching with tiki torches. The copy on the mailing tells voters, “On Tuesday, November 7th, Virginia gets to stand up to hate.” Gillespie’s digital director said that the Democrats “had reached a ‘new low: exploiting Charlottesville tragedy to score political points.’” Ed Gillespie has disavowed the white nationalists since they showed up in Charlottesville. He’s maintained that they are “off the political spectrum.” Virginia’s Governor Terry McAuliffe defended the mailer in a “Ask the Governor” session on a local radio station. He claimed that he had not seen the mailer but said “he believes its creators are tying to make the point he has been addressing.” McAuliffe said that the ads that Gillespie is running against Northam are much like the “hatred” and “bigotry” of those on the alt-right, KKK, and white supremacists. He said there was “no difference.” Virginia’s gubernatorial election is considered a referendum on the presidential election. Gillespie has recently surged in the polls and has overtaken Northam. President Trump lost Virginia in the presidential election.

Biden Keeps Options Open for 2020 http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9159-Biden-Keeps-Options-Open-for-2020 Former Vice President Joe Biden is keeping his options open for 2020. “I haven’t decide to run, but I’ve decided I’m not going to decide not to run.” He made the remarks in an interview with Vanity Fair. Biden decided against running in the 2016 campaign because of the the death of his son in 2015 of brain cancer. He’s remarked several time that in retrospect he wished he had run. Biden said that when he decides whether or not to run he would consider the effect on his family. “You don’t run by yourself. Your family is totally implicated. They become news; they become fodder.” Ashley Biden, the daughter of the former Vice President said that she believed her father is planning on a run. “If he is in good health, knock on wood, and seeing that the landscape is at the time, yeah, I think he is considering it.” The 2020 campaign will be tumultuous. President Trump has so far proved to be polarizing. Now that the Democrats have been shown to be behind the “dossier” and their Russian collusion investigation is failing, the party may end up being discredited.

Congress Pursues FBI’s Part In Dossier Manufacture http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9158-Congress-Pursues-FBI’s-Part-In-Dossier-Manufacture Now that the Trump “dossier” funding has been pinned on the Clinton campaign, investigators will be looking at the FBI’s involvement in its manufacture. In October 2016, Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy hired by Fusion GPS, contacted the FBI with the information he’d collected in the document. The Washington Post reported in February 2017 that Steele “reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work.” The FBI was funding opposition research that was commissioned by the Clinton campaign. Senator Chuck Grassley of Ohio wrote, "The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI's independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration's use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends.” Representative Nunes and Senators Grassley and Graham, have been pressing the FBI to say whether or not the “information from the dossier [was used] as a basis for warrant requests before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.” To date, the FBI has been stalling on requests for document production related to the dossier.

Clinton Dossier Money May Have Been Paid To Russians http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9157-Clinton-Dossier-Money-May-Have-Been-Paid-To-Russians The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee may have purposefully filed inaccurate spending reports with the Federal Election Commission in an effort to hide the funding of the Trump dossier. The Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint on Wednesday pointing out that the inaccuracy did not “disclose the purpose and recipient of payments for the dossier of research alleging connections between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russia.” The Clinton campaign paid money to Fusion GPS through the legal firm Perkins Coie. The $12 million sent to Perkins Coie was marked as “legal services” on FEC reports as opposed to research. Zero Hedge points out that “most of the sources listed in the dossier were based in Russia and include a ‘senior Kremlin official’ as well as other ‘close associates of Vladimir Putin.’” It’s conceivable that research money was paid to “‘senior Kremlin officials’ as compensation for the services.” So while Hillary Clinton has been draggeing her broken toe around the world accusing the Trump campaign of conspiring to collude with the Russians to deprive Hillary of her right to be president, “it now appear as though the Hillary campaign may have been the only one to funnel cash to ‘Kremlin operatives’ in return for political dirt…” And of course, voters are to believe that Hillary knew absolutely nothing.

Now they have even more to worry about. Several of the cartels have been routinely using drones to move their products across the border from Mexico into the United States. They also use explosive devices like IEDs to wage war on rival gangs and the police. Now, at least one cartel is taking it a step further by weaponizing their drones and making them capable of transporting explosives into the U.S. cities. The big worry for homeland security is that if the cartel is paid enough it could let a terrorist group use that technology.

This includes a video interview with a Muslim man who discussed how he was raised to be anti-Semetic.

He announced, “We want to go back to what we were, the moderate Islam that is open to the world, open to all the religions. We will not waste 30 years of our lives dealing with extremist ideas, we will destroy them today.” The 32-year old crown prince was appointed successor by his father King Salman earlier this year. The prince is seeking to modernize the country and its economy by steering the country away from oil dependent revenues. Recently the country announced that the ban on women being able to drive will be fully lifted in 2018. Prince bin Salman announced that a $500 billion city would be “built on the border with Jordan and Egypt.” The city will make extensive use of alternative energy and be a technology hub.

Americans on Food Stamps Keeps Falling http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9149-Americans-on-Food-Stamps-Keeps-Falling The number of Americans on food stamps has fallen 3.48 percent since President Trump began his presidency. Enrollment in the food stamp program has dropped to “its lowest level in seven years.” Almost 1.5 million Americans are no longer enrolled in the program. Some members of Congress are seeking to create legislation that will expand work requirements for able-bodied adults. Some states have taken the initiative to institute work requirements as the economy has recovered from the 2008 recession. Maine was the first state after the recession to bring back work requirements. There may be an uptick in enrollment in the food stamp program in Texas and Florida after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The USDA increased temporary benefits to Texas in the wake of the storm. Also, the USDA “eased restrictions on what items victims . . . could purchase, allowing those who received food stamps to purchase hot food items, which cannot usually be purchased with benefits.” The Trump administration may be reaping the benefits of an economy that was already slowly recovering under the Obama administration.

Ken Stern left his safe “liberal bubble and set off into conservative enclaves of America to expose himself to new ideas.” He learned so much that he wrote a book entitled, “Republican Like Me: How I Left the Liberal Bubble and Learned to Love the Right.” During his dive into fly-over country, Stern found out “that gun homicides have declined significantly over the past 25 years.” "At the same time, the number of guns have gone up. Those two things aren't correlated, but it's clear we know how to drive down gun murders without gun control, and the question is why are we talking about gun control when there's other things that we've been doing for 25 years that actually have reduced murders in this country by an extraordinary amount." Stern wrote an editorial for the New York Post saying, “the media should acknowledge its own failings in reflecting only their part of America. You can’t cover America from the Acela corridor, and the media need to get out and be part of the conversations that take place in churches and community centers and town halls."

Democrats Courting Psychologists Who Want To Remove Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9147-Democrats-Courting-Psychologists-Who-Want-To-Remove-Trump Democrats are laying the foundation to remove President Trump from office using the 25th Amendment. Psychologist John Gartner created Duty to Warn, a “network of mental health experts” that are seeking to remove President Trump. The current practice of psychology does not permit the diagnosis of “public figures without any clinical evaluation.” The policy was put into place in the 1960s by the American Psychiatric Association after some psychologists warned that Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater was not fit for the presidency. “Gartner and his associates have not hesitated to diagnose the president in a variety of ways, with some surmising he is a sociopath, a narcissist, or suffers from a form of dementia.” Democrat Representative Jackie Spier tweeted in August that “POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger. Time to invoke the 25th Amendment.” Psychologist Allen Frances opposes Duty to Warn saying, “We shouldn’t be confusing bad behavior with mental illness. When we do this, it reduces our ability to respond appropriately to bad behavior, and it stigmatizes the mentally ill.” Another retired therapist and Bernie Sanders supporter dismissed efforts by anti-Trump psychologist saying, “They are engaging in their own form of narcissism.”

Clinton Campaign Still Paying Operatives http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9146-Clinton-Campaign-Still-Paying-Operatives Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign is still paying several aides even one year after the election. Huma Abedin was paid $65,000 between mid-November 2016 and June of 2017. In the third quarter of 2017, Abedin was paid an additional $2,000. “Hillary for America spokesman,” Nicholas Merrill, “has been paid $24,357 this year from the campaign.” Long time aide, Robert Russo, who is in charge of correspondence, “has been paid almost $36,000 in 2017 from Hillary for America.” The campaign’s chief operating officer, Elizabeth Jones, has been paid $95,000 in 2017. Many of these aides would likely have received powerful and high paying positions within the White House had Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016. The campaign transferred $800,000 to Onward Together in early May. Onward Together is a political action committee created by Hillary Clinton to fundraise for progressive political causes.

House Committees Launch New Investigations Into FBI and DOJ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9145-House-Committees-Launch-New-Investigations-Into-FBI-and-DOJ Two House committee chairman announced that they would investigate some decisions made by the Obama era Justice Department and FBI. Lawmakers plan to review decisions made by the FBI in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information. The committees also will look into the FBI’s handling of the probe into Trump campaign associates. In a joint statement by Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte, the chairmen said, “Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognized wealth, power, or social status.” "The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight." The committees plan to study the Bureau’s decision to not announce the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia but why it announced the decision to investigate Hillary Clinton. As well as why the FBI announced that there would be no charges against Hillary Clinton instead of the Department of Justice making that announcement.

New Proposal to Massage Obamacare Problems http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9144-New-Proposal-to-Massage-Obamacare-Problems Senator Orin Hatch and Representative Kevin Brady are trying their own version of Obamacare reform. Their proposed legislation would fund the cost-sharing payments to Big Insurers through 2019 and insist that the companies meet “certain requirements to receive the payments to avoid ‘double dipping.’” Additionally, the legislation would “expand health savings accounts to lift the maximum contribution limit.” Finally, the legislation would waive the individual mandate until 2021 and waive the employer mandate retroactively from 2015 through 2017. The companies would not be subject to penalties. "As I have said all along, if Congress is going to appropriate funds for cost-sharing reductions, we must include meaningful structural reforms that provide Americans relief from Obamacare," said Senator Hatch. Representative Brady said, "It takes steps to cure Obamacare's underlying illness through patient-centered reforms that deliver relief from federal mandates, protect life, and increase choices in health care." "It also empowers individuals and families to save and spend their health care dollars the way they want and need by expanding and enhancing a popular, tax-advantaged savings tool known as health savings accounts.” The proposals in the legislation resemble the failed July legislation called the “Skinny Repeal.”

U.S. Pressured Serbia to Not Aid Syria in De-Mining Efforts http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9143-U.S.-Pressured-Serbia-to-Not-Aid-Syria-in-De-Mining-Efforts As ISIS has retreated from Syria, the terrorist group has left thousands of mines in Syria. As people return to their homes in Syria, there is a high risk that people will maimed and killed by mines. The United Nations estimates 600,000 Syrians “have returned to areas liberated by the Syrian government . . .” Already people several people have been killed or had limbs amputated as a result of mines. Months ago, the Serbian government announced that “it would participate in the de-mining efforts in Syria in a manner that would have Serbian forces coordinating with Russians.” Apparently that did not sit well with the U.S. government. Embassy spokesman Eric Heyden said, “In the last six months, in our numerous conversations with the leadership of the Ministry of Defense and the VS General Staff, the US government received multiple assurances that this story is incorrect.” Heyden reminded Serbia that it had received more than $20 million in aid and training from the American government for de-mining efforts in Serbia.

Senator Calls For Special Counsel to Investigate Uranium One Deal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9142-Senator-Calls-For-Special-Counsel-to-Investigate-Uranium-One-Deal Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa tweeted out his insistence that a special counsel needs to be appointed to investigate the Uranium One deal. “Whoever in DOJ is capable [with] authority to appoint a special counsel [should] do so to investigate Uranium One "whoever" means if [you] aren't recused” Over the last week, it’s come to light that the Russians allegedly offered bribes to secure State Department approval for the deal. The Clinton Foundation received in excess of $25 million and former President Clinton was paid $500,000 in speaking fees. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is also reportedly investigating the Podesta Group’s possible Russian connections. Senator Grassley’s call for a special counsel comes after two House committees announced they were investigating the Uranium One deal “and the Obama-era Department of Justice’s handling of the Clinton email investigation on Tuesday.”

Senator Flake Won’t Seek Re-Election http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9141-Senator-Flake-Won’t-Seek-Re-Election Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona will not seek re-election to the Senate in 2018. His approval numbers had plummeted to 18 percent. Senator Flake announced his retirement citing the nation’s “disunion,” “disrepair,” “and destructiveness of our politics.” Senator Flake started out as a “hard-line Republican” early in his term. However, soon after taking office, Flake shifted to the left. He embraced “Gang of Eight immigration reform . . . siding against the Obamacare defunding effort, voting repeatedly for debt ceiling increases, pushing gun control, [and] working with President Obama to open trade with Cuba.” Conservative talk show host Erick Erickson tweeted, “Jeff Flake used to have a 100% Club For Growth score, got to the Senate, and is now in the 50’s below Mitch McConnell.” While President Trump will likely take credit for Senator Flake’s retirement, Senator Flake was in trouble politically before he started opposing President Trump. The senator “purposefully exacerbated that vulnerability by loudly touting his opposition to Trump and the Republican base on a much-ballyhooed book tour.”

Clinton Campaign Funded Russia Dossier http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9140-Clinton-Campaign-Funded-Russia-Dossier The entire Russia collusion story is collapsing. The so called “intelligence dossier” portraying Donald Trump in the most lurid, wild, despicable way, was funded by “the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.” The Washington Post is reporting that “Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS . . . to conduct the research.” Fusion GPS in turn hired a former British intelligence officer “with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community” to write the document. Elias has “denied for a year that he had anything to do with the dossier.” Now his story has been exposed as a lie. Officials with Fusion GPS have refused to testify as to who paid for the document. The company filed motions in court asking that investigators in the Senate not get access to the company’s bank records for the last two years. Now that the people behind the funding have been exposed, the collapse of the story should discredit the Democratic Party for years to come.

Bowe Bergdahl Facing Sentencing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9139-Bowe-Bergdahl-Facing-Sentencing Bowe Bergdahl has pled guilty before a military court of deserting his post in Afghanistan in the face of the enemy and endangering his fellow soldiers. Now he is trying to get sympathy for himself as he faces sentencing for his crimes. He is claiming the military court is a “kangaroo” court and a lynch mob. He is also claiming that he was treated better by the Taliban than by the U.S. military.

It is not surprising that some in the liberal media seem to be siding with Bergdahl by claiming that his sentencing has been influenced by comments made by Trump during the presidential campaign. The judge in the case has already dismissed this idea.

According to research conducted by a group connected to Harvard University believes that the North Korean military is rapidly advancing its development of chemical and biological weapons.

He apparently is working on getting large supplies of anthrax and disease causing weapons like smallpox and cholera which can be easily smuggled into the country and easily delivered by a single individual. They can then spread very rapidly.

Facebook Making More Moves to Limit Conservatives http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9137-Facebook-Making-More-Moves-to-Limit-Conservatives The Facebook Empire of liberal billionaire Mark Zuckerberg has long been rightfully accused of trying to limit the access of conservative groups to the site. He even went so far as to hire people to monitor the so called “trending” sites in order to limit their availability no matter how popular the sites actually were. Now Facebook is removing some sites from its regular News Feed and relegating them to a less known feed.

For pages that want to stay on the main feed there will be a “pay for play” fee charged that will mean that well-funded pages will have a distinct advantage over even popular under-funded pages. Conservatives view this as just another way to eliminate their voices from social media.

The conservative students set up playpens, donned diapers. and sat own sucking on pacifiers. They also played with coloring books which are known to be in some campus havens for liberals along with teddy bears.

The young republicans posted images of their mocking protest on social media and were immediately met with the usual leftist’ hysteria and hypocrisy. They accused the conservative students of engaging in “hate speech” for daring to exercise their first amendment rights.

U.S. Nuclear Bombers on High Alert http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9135-U.S.-Nuclear-Bombers-on-High-Alert For the first time since the Cold War with the Soviet Union ended in 1991 the U.S. Air Force has put its fleet of nuclear bombers on 24 hr. alert status. This has been done because of the growing advance in the North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile program and the increasingly erratic behavior of its dictator Kim Jong Un.

The major base where the nuclear weapons command is based is Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport, Louisiana. B-52 bombers will be fully loaded with nuclear weapons and parked near the ends of massive runways. The crews will sleep in nearby quarters so they can be on the planes and have them in the air in just minutes.

She says the deaths of the four American Green Berets are Trumps fault because of his latest travel ban that included Chad. He says that country pulled it troops out of Niger as a result. First, Chad has never had troops in that part of Niger and the terrorist group is a different one.

He’s authorized the agencies to use everything “from RICO to our tax laws to our firearms laws.” “We will not concede a single block or street corner in the United States to lawlessness or crime. The criminals, the gang members, and the drug traffickers should know: We are coming after you — and we have better tools and are better coordinated than ever.” According to Sessions, the El Salvador gang reaches into forty U.S States and nearly to the D.C. Capitol itself. He said that out of an estimated 40,000 gang members world-wide, 10,000 of them are in America. Gang members “brutally rape, rob, extort, and murder.”

“Tormented” Theresa May Pleads for Help http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9131-“Tormented”-Theresa-May-Pleads-for-Help Leaks from a meeting with European Union leaders portray British Prime Minister Theresa May as “‘begging’ and ‘weak-spirited’ at the negotiating table.” The source of the leak said that May was “anxious”, “despondent”, and “discouraged” while meeting with Jean Claude Juncker of the EU. Mrs. May was described as begging “for help”, and looking “tormented.” She had the look of not having slept for a night. Nick Timothy, the former chief of staff for the prime minister blamed Marin Selmayr, Juncker’s “right-hand man.” He described Selmayr as “Darth Vader”, “Rasputin”, and “The Monster.” EU officials want Britain to pay a significant amount of money upon leaving the union if Britain wants any hope of a trade agreement with the EU. The EU is suspected of wanting to “punish Britain” and make an example out of Britain so that other countries don’t attempt to exit the union. One British official said, “At best, no-one thinks Selmayr would shed a tear if the UK fell out of Europe without a deal; at worst he seems to be actively scheming to make that happen. Selmayr is a ‘believer’ and he believes a destructive Brexit is the best way to keep Europe together.”

Virginia Governor’s Race Tightens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9130-Virginia-Governor’s-Race-Tightens Republican Ed Gillespie has closed the gap in the governor’s race and the “polls remain tight.” Last week, Democrats hauled in former President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden. Obama claimed that “democracy is at stake” in the Virginia race. Democrats worry that if Lt. Governor Ralph Northam loses the race to Gillespie that it could spell trouble for Democrats in the mid-term elections. “From a branding perspective, we have a huge problem. It was the biggest challenge for us in the last year — and our biggest mistake was uniting around ‘Stop Trump,’” said Ken Martin a Democratic activist from Minnesota. Gillespie has taken on the sanctuary city issue and has promised to shut down the effort. He has promised to sign legislation banning them. Northam “refused to say whether he would sign” such a bill. Gillespie barely beat outspoken Trump supporter Corey Stewart in the Republican primary. Gillespie has had to “push for issues that will help rural voters [in order] to better rally Trump’s base amidst concerns that Republicans do not have the same enthusiasm towards Gillespie as they did towards Trump.” President Trump has tweeted his support for Gillespie, but he has not come into Virginia to campaign.

He is suing the Department of Justice for violating his rights. The failed terrorist “attempted to blow up a plane headed for Detroit on Christmas Day 2009.” The device burned him, but it did not explode. 289 people were on the plane when it happened. He is serving four life sentences plus 50 years. The lawsuit alleges that the Department of Justice has “limited his communication with the outside world for reasons of national security and placed him in the prison’t solitary confinement unit” for 23 hours a day. He claims that he has not received “halal food even though he is a practicing Muslim.” The suit claims he has been prevented from praying with other Muslims or having access to an imam. He alleges that “white supremacist” prisoners have yelled, curse, insulted and screamed “things that are religiously insulting and offensive to Muslims.” Defense attorney Gail Johnson said, “The restrictions imposed on our client are excessive and unnecessary, and therefore we seek the intervention of the federal court.”

"I get it — it’s not popular to be Russian right now in some countries," Eugene Kaspersky said. "I cannot change my origin or my company’s foundation. If we moved we would probably still be referred to as 'the Russian cybersecurity company,' even though more than 85 percent of our sales and operations are outside of Russia.” Kaspersky also cited the challenge of finding computer engineers abroad. He said that Russia has the engineers necessary to meet the demand of his company. The Trump administration ordered the removal of all Kaspersky software from the federal government’s computers. The antivirus software could easily be used to search for classified documents and computer code rather than viruses. The U.S. government suspects that because the firm is located in Russia, that the company might be forced to share information with the Russian government. A contractor for the NSA may have had NSA hacking tools stolen from his home computer that had Kaspersky antivirus software loaded.

Paul Manafort worked with the Pedesta group on a pro-Ukrainian lobbying effort. The European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU) was “a nonprofit dedicated to increasing pro-Ukrainian sentiment in the west.” The investigation “has become a criminal investigation into possible violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act by the Podesta Group.” Manafort and the Podesta group never disclosed their work with the ECMU “until media reports exposed the arrangement.” The ECMU paid millions of dollars to manafort’s company. The Podesta Group claims to be cooperating fully with the Special Counsel’s office. “In all of our client engagements, the Podesta Group conducts due diligence and consults with appropriate legal experts to ensure compliance with disclosure regulations at all times — and we did so in this case.”

Bergdahl’s attorney’s successfully argued that the latest comments by President Trump “may threaten public confidence in military courts.” Last week Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of “desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.” He faces a potential life sentence in prison. During the campaign, Donald Trump suggested that Bergdahl should be shot or even thrown out of an airplane without a parachute. Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, the judge overseeing the case, thinks he can be fair and impartial. He is planning to retire and his future career is “isn’t bent on securing promotions.” Nance said, “The member of the public that we are interested in maintaining confidence in the military justice system … is going to be influenced by context.” Bergdahl’s attorney’s hope that their client will be given a lenient sentence in light of the five years of captivity that he endured while in the hands of the Taliban.

A federal judge overseeing the release of the documents “order the Department of State . . . to explain their delayed pace.” The department is under orders to “turn over no less than 500 pages of emails per month to Judicial Watch.” The agency has processed 32,000 pages, but it has released a small number of the emails. Representatives of the State Department said that “additional resources” have been added to the team of people processing the emails. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “It is disheartening that an administration elected to ‘drain the swamp’ is stalling the release of documents to protect Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.” In earlier hearings, representatives for the State Department argued that because of “diminished public interest” the emails should not have to be produced. At the current rate of work, the emails won’t be fully released until sometime in 2020.

Hillary Dismisses Allegations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9124--Hillary-Dismisses-Allegations Hillary Clinton is dismissing stories that she and her husband benefited from the Uranium One deal. She dismissed it as “bologna.” In an interview with C-SPAN the former Secretary of State said, “I would say it’s the same bologna they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.” She accused the president “and his allies” as “experts at distraction and diversion.” She added that “the closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians . . . the more they want to just throw mud on the wall. I’m their favorite target.” While Secretary of State, the Russian company Rosatom purchased the Canadian company Uranium One which owned “uranium stakes stretching from Central Asia to Western America.” The State Department had to sign off on the deal. Executives with the Canadian mining company have donated in excess of $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

So far he has missed 56 votes in the Senate. The Mendez trial centers around several corruption charges. Prosecutors allege that Menendez took bribes from Dr. Salomon Melgen, a wealthy donor, in 2006 in exchange for helping Melgen “get away with $100 million in Medicare fraud.” Menendez received several trips the the Dominican Republic as well. Democrats have remained silent as to whether or not Menendez should resign if he is found guilty. If he’s found guilty and resigns, Republican Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey could appoint a Republican to fill the vacant Senate seat. That would strengthen the slim Republican majority in the Senate. 84 percent of voters in New Jersey think Menendez should resign if he is found guilty. 50 percent think he should not be re-elected even if he’s found not guilty.

Iran-Boeing Deal May Be Terminated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9122-Iran-Boeing-Deal-May-Be-Terminated The Trump administration may kill off a deal between Boeing and an Iranian airline after the airline “was recently caught using its commercial planes to ferry Iranian militants to regional hotspots.” The nuclear agreement with Iran allowed Boeing to sell airplanes to Iran Air. Now that the Trump administration is trying to strengthen the nuclear agreement, the airplane sale may be halted. The Trump administration is increasingly concerned that “Iran would use a fleet of new Boeing planes to boost its regional intervention in hotspots such as Syria.” Representative Peter Roskam believes that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps uses Iran Air to transport weapons. “To have a truly effective and coherent Iran policy, we nee to clamp down on every single entity that supports the IRGC, including Iran Air,” said Roskam. Although no decision has been reached, officials are beginning to see the sale as not being in the “United States’ national security interests.” A source familiar with the internal deliberations said, "This is a careful consensus, ongoing process. They're adding up everything in all the columns. They're not just deciding ‘well it's more important for Boeing to make money' or ‘well it's more important to prevent Iran from sending troops to Assad.'"

FBI Issuing Information on Russian Attempts to get Close to Clintons http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9121-FBI-Issuing-Information-on-Russian-Attempts-to-get-Close-to-Clintons The FBI is releasing information about a concentrated Russian effort to get influence over Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State. The efforts started even before she was confirmed and involved the placing of Russian spies in the employ of a big Democrat donor and trying in infiltrate the State Department directly.

While the FBI was able to uncover and stop most of the spy efforts it was caught by surprise by speech payments to Bill Clinton for speeches in Russia and donations of hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative by a lobbying firm connected to the Russians. The FBI has not yet said that the Clintons did anything illegal, but the optics are certainly very bad.

Melania Trump Saving Taxpayer Dollars http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9120-Melania-Trump-Saving-Taxpayer-Dollars During her tenure as First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama was known for her extravagant spending of taxpayer money as was her husband, the spender in chief. Not only did they take expensive vacations like their yearly holiday trips to Hawaii, but Michelle maintained a personal staff of 16 people with a payroll of $1.24 million per year. This was during her husband’s first year in office, but shortly it was reported that she grew the staff to 24. On the other hand, Melania Trump has a personal staff of four people with combined salaries of $486,700.

In addition, President Trump has cut the White House staff by over 100 people resulting in saving taxpayers over $22 million. For some people this is a good example of draining the swamp.

Hollywood Pulling Failed Movies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9119-Hollywood-Pulling-Failed-Movies The problems with Hollywood are beginning to mirror the drama in the NFL. The people who are boycotting the NFL are not going to the movies. The industry is releasing one “block buster” after another with big name stars like Tom Cruise only to see them generally ignored by the public. Movie attendance has been dismal and major studios are pulling movies out of markets because of big losses.

The problems with the NFL numbers are because Americans are fed up with spoiled professional athletes disrespecting our country. This has caused many people to point out that the elitists in Hollywood have continued to attack the President and the people who elected him. That is quite possibly one of the real reasons for the collapse of the movie industry.

In fact he said he has seen no evidence to indicate that the Russians even influenced any votes at all. He does admit that he and his wife former First Lady Rosalynn Carter disagree on that point.

However, he also told the New York Times that the two of them voted for Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primary. In the meantime, Hillary has continued her bizarre book tour in Europe doing interviews that include her admitting that she tried desperately to get out of going to Trump’s inauguration.

Another Hollywood Elite Faces Charges http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9117-Another-Hollywood-Elite-Faces-Charges James Toback is a well-known Hollywood director who is now accused of using his position to sexually harass women for years. In fact, thirty eight women have come forward so far with allegations against him. He mostly targeted younger women in Manhattan, often college students, but sometimes high school girls. He would convince them he could make them a star and invite them to be interviewed in his hotel room, a movie trailer, or even public park. That was when the talk would turn sexual with Toback telling them that having sex with him was all part of the process. He denies all of the allegations just as Harvey Weinstein did and still does.

Police in San Juan Losing Crime Fight http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9116-Police-in-San-Juan-Losing-Crime-Fight As most of Puerto Rico continues to be without power or water, the crime rate is not slowing down, particularly in San Juan. Crime has been high on the island for a long time due to the economic crisis, and the resulting shortage of police officers. In addition, without power and with only limited cell phone service alarms don’t go off and people cannot call to report a crime in progress.

The ultimate result is that the large criminal population has become emboldened, particularly at night when they can commit crimes like burglaries, home invasions, and general looting with little fear of being caught.

NFL Nightmare Continues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9115-NFL-Nightmare-Continues Roger Goodell is quickly finding out that his refusal to enforce the existing rules mandating that players stand for the National Anthem has done anything to satisfy the fans. It is week seven of the season and the stadiums around the country are less than half full and in some cases almost empty. Not only are less people going to games, fewer are watching the games on television.

Goodell and the team owners have brought this on themselves with Dallas Cowboys owner being reported as the only one to call for the league rules to be enforced at the recent meeting.

Mugabe Appointed Goodwill Ambassador and Then Removed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9114--Mugabe-Appointed-Goodwill-Ambassador-and-Then-Removed The World Health Organization (WHO) installed Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe as “an official ‘Goodwill Ambassador’” last week. Human Rights Watch derided the decision. Chief executive Kenneth Roth said, “‘Mugabe’s corruption [and] his utter mismanagement of the economy has devastated health services’ in Zimbabwe.” Mugabe does not use his own nation’s healthcare system. He’s gone to Singapore three times in 2017 for his health. A spokesman for Britain’s UKIP said, “This is an appalling choice. Mugabe destroyed his own health services, and his human rights record is abysmal.” “The UN and its agencies make a mockery of their charter — We should put as much pressure to bear upon the UN over these decisions as possible, both diplomatic and, if necessary, financial.” The U.S. State Department issued a statement saying “this appointment clearly contradicts the United Nations ideals of respect for human rights and human dignity.” In September, Mugabe promised that those people who murdered white farmers in the early 2000s would never be prosecuted. After international condemnation for the appointment, the WHO rescinded the appointment on Sunday.

Presidents Gather For Hurricane Relief http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9113-Presidents-Gather-For-Hurricane-Relief All five living former presidents came together to help raise money for hurricane victims. The campaign reportedly raise $31 million in private donations. Campaign organizers said 80,000 donors gave during Saturday’s event. Damage estimates for Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria currently exceed $300 billion. It is expected that it will take years to rebuild and recover from the disasters. Hurricane Harvey battered the city of Houston, Texas for four days. It made a second landfall in Louisiana. Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys, Florida and moved north into Georgia and South Carolina. Hurricane Maria destroyed large parts of Puerto Rico taking out most of the electrical grid. Disasters from wildfires and tornadoes in the first half of the year totaled $12 billion in damage. While not there in person, President Trump also participated by a video message. He thanked his predecessors for their “tremendous assistance.”

A Mad, Mad World http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9112--A-Mad,-Mad-World The Pentagon is moving towards putting American nuclear bombers on 24-hour alert, something that has not been done since the end of the cold war in 1991. The order to do so has not been given. However, with “emerging threats” in the Middle East and North Korea, the Air Force is taking steps “in expectation of such an order.” North Korea has recently tested intercontinental ballistic missiles and has exploded a nuclear weapon. The Air Force is bringing in new equipment “to facilitate a larger force.” Additionally, “facilities are also being constructed for other elements of America’s nuclear arsenal, such as nuclear cruise missiles. . . “ Once again, long-range bombers may be sitting on runways, loaded with nuclear weapons, prepared for immediate take off. “The world is a dangerous place and we’ve got folks that are talking openly about use of nuclear weapons,” said Air Force chief of staff, General David Goldfein. “It’s no longer a bipolar world where it’s just us and the Soviet Union. We’ve got other players out there who have nuclear capability. It’s never been more important to make sure that we get this mission right.” Golden is asking for “new ways that nuclear weapons could be used for deterrence, or even combat.”

Terror Cases Skyrocket in Germany http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9111-Terror-Cases-Skyrocket-in-Germany The terrorism cases in Germany have quadrupled over the last year. “Prosecutors have opened more than 900 cases so far this year.” In 2016 there were 240. Germany’s federal police estimate 705 Islamic extremists have a high likelihood of carrying out attacks. The country’s domestic intelligence agency estimates there are 24,400 Islamists who are “active in the country.” Though comfortingly, “most of them don’t pose an immediate terror threat.” “Migrants from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan have been tried over alleged membership in terror groups without being suspected of planning attacks on European soil.” Germany has allowed over a million Islamic migrants into the country. The migrants have resisted integration efforts into Germany’s culture and workforce. Instead many are living off of government funding. Germany’s chief of domestic intelligence said in July, “Islamist terrorism is the biggest challenge facing the BfV and we see it as one of the biggest threats facing the internal security of Germany.”

President Inching Closer to Release of JFK Documents http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9110-President-Inching-Closer-to-Release-of-JFK-Documents Contrary to speculation last week, President Trump appears to be headed towards releasing the remaining secret documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In a tweet, the president said, “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.” The CIA has held back thousands of files and redacted thousands more. The full disclosure of assassination related documents would end some conspiracy theories. Congress ordered the release of the remaining documents 25 years ago. The CIA reportedly wants to keep secret some documents that were created in the 1990s “due to concerns they might reveal recent American intelligence tactics and operations.” Roger Stone reportedly had a conversation with President Trump last week in which he exhorted the president to release the remaining documents in full. One official with Congress speculated that “[Y]ou’ll see a lot of the files next week. Just not all of them, unfortunately. And a lot of the documents that should have been released in full won’t be — there will be deletions.”

CIA Afghanistan Role Expanding http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9109-CIA-Afghanistan-Role-Expanding The CIA is ramping up efforts to “hunt and kill high level Taliban operatives.” The Trump administration loosened the restrictions on the CIA’s operations in Afghanistan. The CIA’s ground missions will include CIA paramilitary personnel and “special operations forces detailed to the agency for specific missions.” The goal of the Trump administration is to push the Taliban to the negotiating table with the Afghan government. Currently the Taliban “controls more territory than at any time since the U.S. invasion in 2001.” 3,000 additional troops have gone to Afghanistan. The U.S. is attempting to demoralize the Taliban by increasing the number of bombs being dropped. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said to the Taliban, “We’ll be here as long as it takes until you change your mind. You will not win a battlefield victory. We may not win one, but neither will you.”

FBI Directory Lays Out His Approach http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9108-FBI-Directory-Lays-Out-His-Approach FBI Director Christopher Wray gave a speech on Sunday in which he laid out his top priority. He said that he is seeking to “usher in ‘a sense of calm and stability’ into the agency. Under former Director Comey, the FBI had a few tumultuous years with the investigation of Hillary Clinton and the subsequent investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign. In his speech, Wray said, "In a society sometimes fixated to a fault on results, I'm somebody who's a big believer in the importance of integrity of process, and that's part of how I am hoping to sort of steady the ship.” He said that his approach is to stay “laser-focused on the mission and on the work itself — day in, day out, left foot, right foot, grinding away, following the rules, following the law, following the guidelines, trying to make sure that we're doing the right thing but in the right way, treating everybody with respect.” Previously Wray worked for the Department of Justice under President George W. Bush. He headed the criminal division.

He plans to run as an independent even though he ran as a Democrat in the presidential primary in 2016 and despite efforts by the Democratic Party to require him to join the party. In an interview with Fox News, Sanders said, “I am an independent and I have always run in Vermont as an independent, while I caucus with the Democrats in the United States Senate. That’s what I’ve been doing for a long time and that’s what I’ll continue to do.” Recently a member of the Democratic National Committee introduced a resolution to require independents Bernie Sanders and Angus King to “run as Democrats in the future.” The resolution failed to get a simple majority. Angus King said that he plans to run as an independent in 2018 as well. “I’ve been an independent since the early nineties. I was a governor as an independent. That’s who I am."

Kamala Harris Buying More Exposure On Social Media http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9106-Kamala-Harris-Buying-More-Exposure-On-Social-Media California Senator Kamala Harris is working with a media firm that helped boost “the national profile of Senator Bernie Sanders.” Harris paid Revolution Messaging LLC, $255,000 in the third quarter of 2017 from her campaign committee. Harris is considered a possible Democratic presidential hopeful for the 2020 race. The quarter million dollar expenditure for increasing her profile was more than double what she spent in the second quarter of this year. So far this year, her campaign has purchased $650,000 worth of services from Revolution Messaging. The company helped Bernie Sanders raise $218 million in online donations. When the company took on the Sanders’ account, “Bernie was polling around 3 percent, had no establishment support, little name recognition, and was running against a popular and ‘inevitable’ Democratic primary opponent.” Senator Harris’ campaign is renting office space in Washington DC and has hired “a number of former Clinton campaign veterans in her . . . office.” One donor and supporter said, “She’s running for president, take it to the bank. She’s absolutely going to run.”

Niger Investigation Considered “Massive Intelligence Failure” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9105-Niger-Investigation-Considered-“Massive-Intelligence-Failure” A senior congressional aide is blaming the deaths of four American soldiers on a “massive intelligence failure.” The U.S. provided no “overhead surveillance of the mission,” and there were no forces available to rescue the troops in the event something went wrong. The armed services committees in Congress and the military are trying to find out if the Americans were “intentionally delayed in the village” and then lured into “a complex ambush.” Senator Lindsey Graham plans to press the Trump administration for more information about its increasing military operations around the world. According to Graham, “The war is morphing. You’re going to see more actions in Africa, not less.” “I will insist that Congress is informed more often and in more detail. As the war expands, as the military had more authority, Congress is going to require more information.” Senators are failing to ask even more basic questions, such as “Why are American troops on the African continent in the first place?” “What interests does America have in Africa that warrant putting troops in Africa?”

Bergdahl Sentencing on Monday http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9104-Bergdahl-Sentencing-on-Monday Bowe Bergdahl is will be sentenced on Monday. The Army sergeant left his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured by the Taliban and held captive for five years. Bergdahl entered a “naked plea” of guilty to “charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.” Such pleas can be “advantageous by allowing the defense to refrain from agreeing to certain facts that it might otherwise have to concede to under a plea agreement.” The sentencing hearing is anticipated to “feature dramatic testimony” from the soldiers and Navy SEAL who were badly injured in their attempt to locate and rescue Bergdahl. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison. The judge in the case will likely have to deal with comments made by President Trump during the campaign as a candidate and last week as commander in chief. The attorneys for Bergdahl plan to ask the judge for leniency in light of Bergdahl’s testimony that he “was caged, kept in darkness and beaten” while in the Taliban’s custody. He testified that he tried to escape “more than a dozen times.” When he entered a guilty plea, Bergdahl called his actions “very inexcusable.”

Amendment to Limit Drilling In Alaska Defeated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9103--Amendment-to-Limit-Drilling-In-Alaska-Defeated The Senate voted down a Democratic attempt to stop drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Senator Maria Cantwell offered the amendment during the debate on the budget resolution. Many Democrats believe the area is ecologically sensitive and cannot sustain drilling. Cantrell said, “The notion that we, tonight, after 60-plus years, would give up what is a biologically important area, a critical habitat for polar bears, a breeding ground for caribou, migratory birds and over 200 species — for what? For oil we don’t need?” Alaska Republican Senator Murkowski replied, “Those who would support this amendment will deny us the opportunity to do something constructive in this country, when it comes to our opportunities to produce energy, to produce wealth.” She went on to argue that by developing energy in federal lands, the nation’s deficit could be reduced as well as strengthen the nation’s national security and competitiveness. The amendment was defeated 52-48.

Republicans Look At Limiting 401(k) Contributions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9102--Republicans-Look-At-Limiting-401(k)-Contributions Lawmakers are eyeing ways to keep Americans from using their pre-tax dollars to save for retirement. Republicans are looking at lowering the amount of money that people can put into their 401(k) plans. Currently people can contribute up to $18,000 every year. People don’t pay tax on the money until it is pulled out. Republicans want to lower the amount to $2,400 a year. Any additional money that people want to save could be put into a Roth 401(k) where the money is taxed up front but not taxed when taken out in retirement. By limiting the amount of pre-tax dollars people can save, the federal government would see an increase in tax money. An estimated 55 million Americans use 401(k) plans. They hold $5 trillion in assets. In September House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy disputed the idea that Republicans wanted to tax 401(k)s “Why would you punish people when they’re actually saving for their own retirement and they’re not looking to government? You want to incentivize that even further. Don’t punish people who actually save their own money.”

California Sues to Restore Illegal Obamacare Subsidies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9101-California-Sues-to-Restore-Illegal-Obamacare-Subsidies California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra asked the U.S. Court of Appeals in D.C. to issue a restraining order against the Trump administration and force it to restore unconstitutional insurance subsidies. Congress never authorized the payment of subsidies, but the Obama administration paid them anyway. Republicans in Congress sued Obama to stop the payments. A lower court agreed the subsidies were illegal. Currently there is a bi-partisan effort in the Senate to provide money for the subsidies through legislation. President Trump stopped the payment of the subsidies last week. The action has made the insurance market even more chaotic. “California’s state health insurance agency reacted by first announcing a surcharge of 12.4 percent on top of the 12.9 percent increase already authorized for Covered California’s popular “silver plan.” Obamacare was sold to voters as a way to cut insurance premiums by as much as $2,500 per family. However, because of all the mandates in the legislation, premiums have risen 68 percent between 2010 and 2015.

Ralph Northam wants progress. He wants to take us forward, not backward. He wants to reach out for hope, not fear. We need you to take this seriously. Because our democracy is at stake. And it’s at stake right here in Virginia,” said Obama. About 7,500 people attended the rally. Obama went on to say that Republican Ed Gillespie is “dividing people.” Gillespie has proposed legislation to ban sanctuary cities. Northam responded saying, “This piece of legislation that was nothing more than a political ploy are [sic] doing nothing more than promoting fear mongering, hatred, and bigotry.” The Virginia governor’s election comes one year after the presidential election. It is considered a referendum on presidential politics. Republican Ed Gillespie is leading in the Monmouth University poll.

Kennedy Assassination Records May Not Be Released http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9099-Kennedy-Assassination-Records-May-Not-Be-Released The Trump administration may block the release of documents related to the assassination of President Kennedy. The 3,100 documents are scheduled to be made public on Thursday October 26. Congress passed the Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 after Oliver Stone’s movie on Kennedy’s assassination. In passing the legislation, Congress wanted to put to rest many conspiracy theories. Speaking for the White House, Lindsay Walters said that the administration was trying “to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released to the public.” Earlier this month, the House and Senate introduced resolutions urging the president “to allow full public disclosure of the documents.” Senator Grassley of the Senate Judiciary Committee said, “Americans deserve a full picture of what happened that fateful day in November 1963. Shining a light on never-before-seen government records is essential to filling in these blank spaces in our history.” The Trump administration is said to be concerned that releasing the documents might jeopardize national security. That any documents relating to the assassination could have an impact on today’s national security issues, is improbable.

Roy Moor Campaign Asks Washington Post to Retract Tax Story http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9098-Roy-Moor-Campaign-Asks-Washington-Post-to-Retract-Tax-Story The campaign of Judge Roy Moore asked that the Washington Post retract a story regarding a charity that he headed in 2011. According to the story, the charity’s tax filing did not report in 2011 that it “guaranteed him $498,000 in back pay.” The Washington Post argues, had the guarantee been reported as compensation, there would have been a federal tax bill of more than $100,000. Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead said that “the law requires no one to pay taxes on income not yet received.” According to certified public accountant, “Mortgages and promissory notes for payment are not designated as income received until those moneys are paid. [I]ndividuals report income only when received.” The campaign chairman said, “The Washington Post should retract its story immediately and fire the reporters who cooked up this late batch of fake news.” The Washington Post has been doing its best to undermine Judge Moore’s campaign after his improbable win in the Republican runoff at the end of September.

Republicans want to know who funded the dossier and how much weight the FBI and Justice Department gave the dossier as the “basis of its investigation into Russian interference” in the 2016 campaign. The federal judge in the case gave the House Intelligence Committee “until noon Saturday” to say why the subpoena is needed to compel the production of bank records. Fusion GPS has been fighting to keep the name of the person behind the dossier a secret. The person is believed to be a supporter of Hillary Clinton. The document was originally commissioned by an anti-Trump Republican donor. But after Trump won the nomination he abandoned the project. Later a Clinton supporter got behind the dossier and funded it. Most of the allegations in the dossier have been denied by the president.

The resolution lays out the “parameters for the real budget debate.” “The reconciliation instructions in the budget resolution are what will allow tax reform to avoid a filibuster . . .” Currently, the proposed budget “cuts government spending by $5.1 trillion and will create an on-budget surplus of $197 billion over the next decade . . . “ Mitch McConnell said, “Passing this budget is critical to getting tax reform done, so we can strengthen our economy after years of stagnation under the previous administration.” Senator Rand Paul was the only Republican to vote no on the budget resolution. “Today, the Senate considered a budget that simply didn’t measure up and spent too much. I will fight for the biggest, boldest tax cut we can pass, but I could not in good conscience vote for a budget that ignores spending caps that have been law of the land for years and simply pretend it didn’t matter.” I a tweet later in the day, Senator Paul warned Republicans that they had failed “a litmus test on cutting spending.”

Bernie Sanders Can Stay An Independent http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9095-Bernie-Sanders-Can-Stay-An-Independent Bernie Sanders won’t have to join the Democratic Party. Members of the Democratic National Committee “voted down a resolution demanding Senator Bernie Sanders join the party.” The resolution was introduced by three people from California and “was widely interpreted as another volley in the intra-party feud” that has engulfed the party since the election. Chairman of the resolutions committee, James Zogby said ”This puts salt in a wound that we need to be closing right now. The consequences would feed a Twitter debate that will not be helpful to any of us right now." Supporters of the resolution “argued independents working outside the party cost Democrats a number of progressive votes.” In the past, Senator Sanders has said the Democratic Party’s model is “not working.” He said that he won’t run for re-election as a Democrat in 2018.

Retired Pilots To Be Recalled http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9094-Retired-Pilots-To-Be-Recalled The Air Force is short 1,500 pilots. Programs to incentivize pilots to remain with the Air Force have not been effective in retaining pilots. On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order to allow the Air Force and other branches “to recall as many as 1,000 retired pilots to active duty.” The pilots may be recalled for up to three years. Senator McCain said, “This is a full-blown crisis, and if left unresolved, ti will call into question the Air Force’s ability to accomplish its mission.” The shortages are as a result of several things including “competition from commercial airlines,” “delays and funding shortfalls in training,” and the increased work load of the aircraft and crew as the military extends itself across the world. Senator Lindsey Graham said the war against the Islamic state and al-Qaeda is expected to increase. He predicted more war in Africa. “You’re going to see more aggression by the United States toward our enemies, not less.”

Judge Throws Out Verdict Against Johnson & Johnson http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9093-Judge-Throws-Out-Verdict-Against-Johnson-&-Johnson A judge in California threw out a $417 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson. The company had been sued by a woman who claimed she’d developed ovarian cancer as a result of using talc-based product such as Johnson’s Baby Powder. Judge Maren Nelson granted Johnson & Johnson’s request for a new trial saying that the original trial had errors and “insufficient evidence on both sides.” Additionally, three jurors who had “voted against finding the company liable were improperly excluded from determining damages.” The plaintiff’s attorney promised to file an appeal. Johnson & Johnson is facing 4,800 plaintiffs nationwide in talc-related cases. The company has lost four cases in Missouri with verdicts totaling $307 million.

Robert Mueller was Head of FBI During Emerging Uranium Scandal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9091-Robert-Mueller-was-Head-of-FBI-During-Emerging-Uranium-Scandal Although widely being ignored by the mainstream media, there is considerable talk in Washington D.C. about the emerging scandal involving Russian bribes being paid to nuclear energy officials to help the Russians get control of a significant portion or American uranium. The FBI got involved and apparently uncovered ties between Russian payments to Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. She and then Attorney General Eric Holder were on the commission that approved the deal with the Russians. Despite the large amount of evidence collected it was never made public and was covered up by the Obama administration. The Director of the FBI at the onset of the investigation was none other than Robert Mueller, who is now the special prosecutor looking into alleged Russian collusion with Trump.

Why American Troops are in Niger http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9090-Why-American-Troops-are-in-Niger Since four American Green Berets were killed in the African County of Niger many Americans are wondering why we have troops there. The answer is relatively simple, there are Islamic terrorists there. As ISIS was expanding it Caliphate it had most of its resources concentrated in countries like Libya, Syria, and Iraq, but it also has affiliated groups in other countries.

Now that the terrorist group is losing its conquered territories many of its fighters are escaping to countries like Niger. This was not unexpected, and American troops have been deployed for several years to train the armies of countries where Islamic terrorism exists and is in danger of growing.

ISIS Looking for Mass Casualty Attacks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9089-ISIS-Looking-for-Mass-Casualty-Attacks Officials in Great Britain and the United States are predicting that the defeat of the ISIS caliphate and the capture of its de-facto capitol in Raqqa, Syria will likely cause the Islamic terrorist group and its affiliates to plan mass casualty attacks. The leaders of ISIS are desperate to make their movement relevant again so they can recruit more fighters to commit terrorism. The head of British Intelligence and the Attorney General of the United States have also said that steps must be taken to strengthen the gathering of information about major attacks. The probable targets include airlines, airports, and sporting events. The group will probably continue encouraging smaller lone wolf attacks, but are desperate for a bigger score.

Sonoma Fires Set by Illegal Alien http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9088-Sonoma-Fires-Set-by-Illegal-Alien It is turning out that some of the fires that devastated Sonoma, California were set by an illegal alien from Mexico who had been deported twice. ICE officials have issued five requests for detainers of Jesus Gonzales to Sonora authorities in the last year. He has been arrested for various felonies and misdemeanors including arson, but has always been released prior to the federal officers getting him.

Sonoma County considers itself a sanctuary jurisdiction in a state that has declared itself a sanctuary state. The Gonzales case is just one more situation being pointed out where liberal politicians feel that protecting illegal criminal aliens is more important than protecting American citizens.

Spain Preparing to Take Control of Catalonia http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9087-Spain-Preparing-to-Take-Control-of-Catalonia The crisis in Spain is growing as the government has announced its intention to take control of the rebellious region of Catalonia unless it renounces its efforts to become an independent nation. In what Spain called an illegal election the residents of the region voted overwhelmingly for independence, however, no formal announcement has been made.

The leaders in Catalonia wanted to negotiate with Spain, but the Spanish government refused the offer. Now, there is an apparent impasse and whatever happens now will destabilize not only the young Spanish democracy, but possibly the entire European Union.

Kelly is a retired Marine Corps general who lost his son in Afghanistan. He said that the words used by President Trump about the soldier knowing what he was getting into were actually suggested by Kelly himself.

Kelly also said he was stunned that Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson listened in on the call and then criticized the President. Kelly said that the death of any American soldier is sacred. Wilson responded by insulting Kelly.

He claims that U.S. naval assets in the area are prime targets.

He appears to be unconcerned with the fact that such an attack would lead to the total destruction of his country, but the reality is that he is not as crazy as some people think. He knows what the consequences would be but he is making the threats to feed his own ego.

Under the proposal, “political content on he internet, paid or not, should face substantial federal regulation to eliminate undefined ‘disinformation’” And users who share “fake news” would be punished. The current commissioner of the FEC said, “Ann’s proposal is full blown regulation of all political content, even discussions issues, posted at any time, for free or for a fee, on any online platform, from Facebook to the NewYorkTimes.com.” “A fatal flaw of Ann’s proposal is that it cannot define what is, or is no, ‘disinformation’ in a political message. Nevertheless, it proposes to tag threats of libel lawsuits and liability to thousands of American citizens who might want to retweet or forwards a message that somebody else subjectively considers to be ‘disinformation. I call that the big chill.” Under the proposal to regulate political speech, a national database of “all regulated political ads and discussions” would be created. According to the proposal, the data would be “stored long enough to enable post-election enforcement.”

Republicans Urged To Compromise On Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9083-Republicans-Urged-To-Compromise-On-Obamacare Republican Senator Lamar Alexander told his Republican colleagues that it was time to change their stance on Obamacare. “I would ask what’s conservative about unaffordable premiums? What’s conservative about creating chaos so millions can’t buy health insurance?” He argued that it was time to embrace compromise and stabilize the failing Obamacare plan. 11 Republican senators have co-sponsored his bill that would restore cost-sharing subsidies through 2019. His bill would permit states to “offer catastrophic insurance policies for people of all ages, encourage agreements to sell insurance across state lines and streamline the process for states to obtain federal regulatory waivers for innovative health insurance plans.” The chairman of the House Republican Study Committee dismissed the deal. “The GOP should focus on repealing and replacing Obamacare, not on trying to save it,” tweeted Representative Mark Walker. President Trump has flip-flopped over the last several days on the cost sharing subsidies. He supported legislative efforts to restore theme and then tatted that he would “never support bailing out [insurance companies] who have made a fortune [with Obamacare].”

Spain Invokes Article 155 http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9082-Spain-Invokes-Article-155 Spain’s government said that it would implement Article 155 of the Spanish constitution and suspend Catalan autonomy on Saturday The president of Catalan has refused to drop the region’s claim of independence. Catalan’s president tried to get Madrid to agree to talks and hinted that if Catalan would declare independence if Madrid did not agree. Two separatist leaders were arrested and jailed on Monday. Government officials are investigating other leaders. More arrests may be coming. Catalan separatists urged its supporters to pull their cash out of CaixaBank and Banco Sabadell “to protest . . . their decision to shift their legal domiciles out of the region.” The bank runs could put pressure on the banks’ liquidity as well as cause problems for the Spanish government. If Article 155 is implemented, the current president of Catalan will be replaced within 48 hours. New regional elections in Catalonia will also be set. Prime Minister Rajoy is getting some pushback from politicians in the legislature. While Socialist back Rajoy’s position, they are telling him to take a gradual approach with Catalan.

Moody’s Issues Warning On Hartford’s Debt http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9081-Moody’s-Issues-Warning-On-Hartford’s-Debt Hartford, Connecticut could default on its debt as soon as November. A default could force the state capital into bankruptcy. The city’s shrinking tax base as well as losing the insurance company Aetna have made it unlikely the city come up with the money to balance its budget and repay its creditors. The bond rating companies downgraded Hartford’s credit rating on September 26. Creditors may only get 60 to 80 percent of their principal if the city is unable to pay its debts. City officials are hopeful that the state will offer a bailout. So far this fiscal year, legislators have been unable to pass a budget. The state has a $3.5 billion two-year budget deficit. Complicating its finances is that Hartford is beholden to unions. Moody’s called them a “constraint’ to cutting the city’s deficit. Labor costs and generous benefits to city workers are expected to increase $21 million in 2018. Unions would have to make “significant concessions” in order to reduce the deficit. But unions are more likely to hold out for tax increases.

Attorney Petitions to Have Comey Disbared http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9080-Attorney-Petitions-to-Have-Comey-Disbared Attorney Ty Clevenger is petitioning the New York Bar to disbar former FBI Director James Comey. In his petition, Clevenger accuses “Comey of lying to Congress and destroying potential evidence in the Clinton email scandal. . . “ Comey testified before Congress that he did not decide that Hillary Clinton was not going to be charged until after he’d interviewed her in July of 2016. However, the FBI has released documents showing that the former FBI director began drafting his exoneration of Clinton months before agents had finished interviewing all the witnesses, including Clinton. Providing “materially false testimony to Congress” violates several rules of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct. Clevenger successfully petitioned a Maryland court to have the state bar investigate former aides to Hillary Clinton “for their effort in allegedly helping Hillary ‘destroy evidence.’” The Maryland judge said that the state bar was wrong to brush aside the petition and call the charges “frivolous.” The state requires that the bar investigate no matter who brings the charges. The outcome in the Maryland bar investigation is still pending.

IRS Turning Screws On Silent Obamacare Tax Returns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9079-IRS-Turning-Screws-On-Silent-Obamacare-Tax-Returns Taxpayers who submit their 2017 tax returns without disclosing their health insurance coverage will have their electronic returns rejected and their paper returns suspended. Even though the Trump administration has sought to undercut the law, the IRS is taking it upon itself to force compliance with the unpopular law. “Taxpayers remain obligated to follow the law and pay what they may owe at the point of filing.” The law exacts a penalty of 2.5 percent of adjusted gross income. The minimum penalty for an adult is $695 and $347.50 per child. There are several exemptions from the law, “including lacking access to affordable health coverage, being homeless, getting evicted, experiencing domestic violence, experiencing the death of a family member and filing for bankruptcy.” At the beginning of the Trump administration, the head of the IRS announced that he would accept tax returns that were silent with respect to Obamacare compliance. The latest announcement from the IRS is a reversal of its earlier position.

Investigation Into Niger Ambush Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9078-Investigation-Into-Niger-Ambush-Heats-Up The Pentagon is trying to find out what happened after an ambush in Niger left four U.S. special operations soldiers dead. The American soldiers were attacked by Islamic State fighters. The Pentagon is sending a team of investigators to the African nation to determine what happened and to construct a timeline of events. White House Chief of Staff Joh Kelly said, “We need to find out what happened and why.” James Mattis at the Defense Department said, “We at the Department of Defense like to know what we’re talking about before we talk. And so we don’t have all the accurate information yet. We will release it as rapidly as we get it.” American commanders on the ground have been unable to create a comprehensive “story board” detailing the facts and timeline of events. The lack of details “has senior Pentagon officials and lawmakers suggesting incompetence.” In March, the commander of U.S. Africa Command told Congress that “his forces’ lack . . . needed resources on the continent.” He said “there weren’t enough military helicopters to help locate missing, wounded, or killed service members.”

The Senate Minority Leader attempted to focus his caucus on efforts to oppose tax cuts, “tax increases on the middle-class, cuts to Medicare or Medicaid, and adding to the deficit. Democrats have been trying to enact greater gun control in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting. Democratic politicians are under pressure by gun control activists in their party to bring up gun control legislation. "Democrats need to find courage and learn to speak to the issue. There’s a lot of anger in this movement about the response from Democrats right now. People think it’s totally inadequate, “ said Ladd Everett of 1Pulse4America. Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut said that he was “drafting a variety of amendments,” some of which related to gun control. “I would only put things on the floor that have the broad support of the caucus. This budget is so toxic on its own terms I think there’s a question about whether you want to take the focus away from this terrible [budget] vote they’re about to cast."

Steven Brisee has been arrested multiple times, most recently twice in September. The 27-year old Democrat is facing criminal charges in two counties “for allegedly living in someone else’s empty house without permission and trying to stay almost $1,500 worth of clothes and other merchandise from a Kohl’s” department store. He announced on Twitter that he’d had enough of politics. His campaign spent $18,000, but only raised $850. No evidence has been found that he lives in the district he wanted to represent. Steven Brisee settled for mediocrity. Had he just waited until he was elected to Congress, Brisee could have stolen on a much grander scale by fleecing taxpayers of their hard earned money. By directing ill gotten goods to the right people, he might have gained great power and remained in Congress for decades.

The Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman announced that he is investigating the purchase of Uranium One by a Russian state-owned company. The purchase allowed Russia to control twenty percent of the uranium market in the United States. Senator Grassley said that the “executive branch does not have the authority to use non-disclosure agreements to avoid congressional scrutiny.” “If the FBI is allowed to contract itself out of congressional oversight, it would seriously undermine our constitutional system of checks and balances,” said Grassley. "The Justice Department needs to work with the committee to ensure that witnesses are free to speak without fear, intimidation, or retaliation from law enforcement. Witnesses who want to talk to Congress should not be gagged and threatened with prosecution for talking.” Former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech that he gave in Moscow. And the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from parties involved in the uranium deal.

Senator Cochran was first elected to Congress in 1972. He’s remained a member of Congress for the subsequent 45 years. The senator will be 80 in two months. He may not be able to remain a functioning member of the Senate much less head of the Appropriations Committee.

For example the Hollywood elites like Melissa McCarthy, Emma Stone, and Julianne Moore attacks the NRA and calls for abolishing conceal carry permits. Of course, none of this has anything to do with Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter. He was not a member of the NRA and the weapons he used do not fall under concealed carry permits.

However, since then progressives have claimed there is an on-going purge of its members on the committee and the staff.

Obviously, the opposite has occurred since the stock market started a remarkable run within days of Trump’s election.

In just ten months there have been fifty historic highs in the market with latest being yesterday when the market surged above 23,000 and stayed there. It is expected that the market will continue to stay on this course for the foreseeable future. The only thing that could reverse the trend would be the Republican Congress failing to pass a tax reduction plan.

Instead Goodell has pledged to help rebellious players address their concerns which apparently include “police brutality” sentencing for drug offenses, and whatever else catches the fancy of the activists.

Obama Administration Covered Up FBI Russian Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9067-Obama-Administration-Covered-Up-FBI-Russian-Investigation Information is emerging about a massive cover-up by the Obama administration of an FBI investigation of collusion between the Clintons and the Russians. This did not involve the election, but the use of bribery and extortion to give the Russians control of American uranium deposits so Putin could enhance both civilian and military nuclear capabilities.

While Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Bill Clinton was paid millions of dollars to make speeches in Russia and the Putin regime arranged for millions more to be given to the Clinton Foundation. The payback was the giving of almost 20% of U.S. uranium to Russia.

National Archives Reminds White House of Record Keeping http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9066-National-Archives-Reminds-White-House-of-Record-Keeping The National Archives reissued its warning to the White House that it “needs to follow document preservation laws.” All presidential records must be preserved according to the law. “Failure to abide by these requirements may lead to administrative penalties. The willful destruction or concealment of federal records is a federal crime.” Officials with the National Archives are concerned that there was lax enforcement of the policy early on in the Trump administration. There are reports that many officials in the White House “used personal devices and email accounts for work. . . “ Jared Kushner was reported to have used a private email account to conduct government work. A White House investigation into private email use was launched later in the week. Other reports indicate that White House officials used “encrypted smartphone apps to communicate, such as Confide and Signal, which are designed to delete data.” The head of the National Archives outlined a series of guidelines for the administration and pointed out that “smartphone apps are expressly prohibited for conducting official business” because they can be deleted. President Trump’s tweets have to be preserved, even those that he deletes.

Brexit Negotiations Falter http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9065-Brexit-Negotiations-Falter Brexit talks are failing to make progress. After five rounds of talks without an breakthrough. Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union less than 18 months. At that time, thousands of EU regulations will cease to apply in Britain. According to Euroskeptics, “The U.K. has been far too weak in the negotiations, far too accommodating.” The EU is suspected of wanting to draw out the negotiations for as long as possible so it can gain the “maximum of benefit for them.” Britain’s current negotiating stance is that it wants a two-year transition period after Britain leaves the EU. A looming possibility is that there will be no agreement. In that case, Britain and the EU will use World Trade Organization rules for trading. This “would mean tariffs on goods and uncertainty for services.” Worst case scenarios include thousands of jobs being imperiled, air traffic complications, weaker U.K. economic growth, and millions of EU and British citizens in limbo. A more optimistic perspective believes that Britain could thrive without the crushing EU regulations on the economy. Britain could embrace a Singapore model with “lower tax, lower regulation, lower tariff, more enterprise-friendly economy.” The EU wants and estimated $70 billion from Britain “to settle its financial commitments to the bloc. British negotiators think that is too high and won’t agree to any amount of money until the EU commits to discussions on future relations.

Corruption Goes Deep in Russia-Clinton Nuclear Scheme http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9064-Corruption-Goes-Deep-in-Russia-Clinton-Nuclear-Scheme A businessman who helped the FBI uncover the Russian nuclear bribery and kickback scheme was required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. He was blocked by the Obama administration “from telling Congress what he knew about Russia’s efforts to influence the Clintons and Obama administration decisions.” Attorney Victoria Toensing is seeking to a way to allow her client to talk to Congress. Toensing said, “All of the information about this corruption has not come out.” She hinted that political pressure was brought to bear on her client and that there is evidence that could have prevented the Uranium One deal if it had become public. “There was corruption going on and it was never brought forward. And in fact, the sale of the uranium went on despite the government knowing about all of this corruption. So, he’s coming forward. He wants the right thing to be done, but he cannot do it unless he is released from the NDA.” The Department of Justice threatened criminal charges if the businessman ever violated his non-disclosure agreement.

Political Chaos http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9063-Political-Chaos Two staffers for Arizona Republican Senate candidate Kelli Ward resigned recently. Dustin Stockton and Jen Lawrence were with the Ward campaign from May 2017 until September 2017. Both Stockton and Lawrence were reporters for Breitbart News. “After running her campaign, we’ve realized that our successful efforts to legitimize her campaign was a mistake,” wrote Lawrence in a press release. “Her campaign was such a disaster that we saw an opportunity to prove how much we can help struggling campaigns and we did just that,” said Stockton. The two former staffers said that Kelli Ward won’t be able to withstand the pressures of standing up to opposition if she ever reaches Washington D.C. According to Stockton, Ward is not to be trusted. “What we found is that she is willing to adopt whatever methods she thinks will work at the time. She will set anything aside in order to pursue her own ambition.” She is not committed to her grassroots supporters, according to Stockton. Arizona has many committed conservatives who could do well in a primary against incumbent Senator Flake. According to Stockton, the people of Arizona would be better served by someone other than Ward. Kelli Ward’s campaign offered no comment.

A Tax Deduction That A Democrat Loves http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9062--A-Tax-Deduction-That-A-Democrat-Loves Senator Schumer of New York is working to keep state and local tax deductions in the pending tax reform legislation. Although Senator Schumer is a supporter of higher taxes on the rich, he’s not as enthusiastic when he might have to pay higher taxes. The senator wrote off $58,000 in state and local taxes in 2016. Schumer has a vested interest in making sure he gets to continue his lucrative tax deduction. “Eliminating state and local deductibility is a blow to the wallet of millions of middle-class tax payers across the country.” Estimates are that the government would collect an additional $1.3 trillion over ten years if the deductions go away. According to Senator Schumer, the Republican tax plan “gives huge tax cuts to the wealthiest and the biggest corporations, and socks it to the middle-class.” Schumer has promised to opposed “any bill that tries to deal with the state and local deduction.”

North Korea Launches New Volley of Threats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9061-North-Korea-Launches-New-Volley-of-Threats North Korea warned that if military exercises continue with South Korea, the United States will face an ’unimaginable’ strike. The government warned that the military exercises had “hardened our determination that the U.S. should be tamed with fire.” The United States and South Korea will be carrying out operation Courageous Channel next week. The exercise will practice evacuating Americans “in the event of a ‘crisis.’ Recently the U.S. Air Force flew two bombers over the Korean peninsula. North Korea said, "The US is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones. The US should expect that it would face unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time." American spy satellites “captured images of missiles mounted on launchers being moved out of a hanger near the capital Pyongyang last Friday.” A South Korean newspaper speculated that North Korea might “carry out a simultaneous launch of ICBM and IRBM within a few days in protest against the U.S.’s show of military might.”

Elitist Bernie Sanders Flies in Luxury http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9060-Elitist-Bernie-Sanders-Flies-in-Luxury Senator Bernie Sanders enjoys the trappings of power and wealth. In addition to his three houses, the millionaire senator “spent nearly $40,000 on luxury private jet travel during the third quarter” of 2017 Senator Sanders’ Senate campaign committee contracted with Apollo Jets. The company is “dedicated to providing a luxury flight experience based on superior safety and exceptional customer care.” The company offers jets that seat six to eight passengers as well as jumbo jets that seat 500 or “plush business class chairs for 50 or more” people. Sanders has been in the forefront of calling for a carbon tax because of global warming. In 2014, the senator said global warming is “causing devastating problems” and blamed the warming on “human activity.” In April 2016, Senator Sanders flew in a chartered Delta 767 to Rome to address a Vatican conference on “‘immoral and unsustainable’ wealth inequality.” Although his plane could seat between 211 and 261 people, fewer than 50 people were privileged enough to be on the plane with him. It is unclear how much Senator Sanders’ carbon emissions were because of his luxury jet travel.

DOJ Possibly Investigating Russian-Clinton-Uranium Scandal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9059-DOJ-Possibly-Investigating-Russian-Clinton-Uranium-Scandal In the wake of new information coming to light about the Russia-Clinton nuclear scandal, Attorney General Jeff Sessions declined to confirm or deny if a new investigation has been launched. "Mr. Chairman, we will hear your concerns. The Department of Justice will take such actions as is appropriate, I know some people involved have gone to jail in that transaction already,” said Sessions. The sale of Uranium One to a Russian company gave Russia control of nearly a fifth of America’s uranium market. Key members of the House and Senate were not informed by the FBI about Russian bribery and kickbacks. “The Clinton foundation received millions of dollars from Russian parties with ties to the transaction.” Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Holder both served on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). That agency signed off on the sale of Uranium One to the state-owned Russian Rosatom company. The Senate Judiciary Committee is looking into whether or not CFIUS knew of the criminal probe into the bribery scheme at the time Uranium One was sold. Former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 the same month the sale of Uranium One began.

Senators Propose Bill to Prop Up Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9058-Senators-Propose-Bill-to-Prop-Up-Obamacare Legislation to stabilize the health insurance market has been introduced by Senators Alexander and Murray. The bill would restore the cost-sharing payments for the next two years. The payments were halted last week by President Trump because of their unconstitutionality. Senator Alexander said, “The best course is to take this limited bipartisan first step to avoid the chaos that wold occur during 2018 and 2019 if premiums continue to skyrocket and millions of Americans find themselves without a way to purchase health insurance.” President Trump commended the efforts of senators to find a solution, but he said that “Congress must find a solution to the Obamacare mess instead of providing bailouts to insurance companies.” On Wednesday the president tweeted, “. . . I can never support bailing out [insurance companies] who have made a fortune [with Obamacare]. Nathan Nascimento of Freedom Partners said, “. . . we agree with the White House that any deal that extends cost-sharing reduction subsidies and props up the law in the interim should start with eliminating the individual and employer mandates.”

Scalia’s Judicial Interpretation Has Come to Dominate http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9057-Scalia’s-Judicial-Interpretation-Has-Come-to-Dominate According to Justice Kagan, the late Justice Scalia’s textualist reasoning has come to “dominate the court.” Scalia advocated the judicial theory that “the interpretation of law is based on the meaning of legal text as it would be commonly understood at the time of its passage, and does not consider other factors like the law’s intention when passed.” Kagan said the other system of judicial interpretation is one advocated by Justice Breyer. It emphasizes the law’s purpose and its real-world outcomes. The justice went on to say, “Pretty much all of us now look at the text first and the text is what matters most.” “And if you can find clarity in the text that’s pretty much the end of the ballgame.” But Justice Kagan said, “Often text are not clear, you have to look [farther].” Justice Scalia “was as generous and warm and funny as a person could be. I just so appreciate all the time I got to spend with him,” said Kagan. “I miss him a lot.”

California Group Tells Amazon to Avoid the State http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9056-California-Group-Tells-Amazon-to-Avoid-the-State The deadline for cities to land Amazon’s headquarters is on Thursday. One group of business owners from California however told Amazon to forget California as a location. The California Business & Industrial Alliance (CABIA) placed a full-page ad in USA Today warning Amazon to avoid California because of the state’s “onerous regulations.” The headline reads, “Dear Amazon, Our Weather is Nice. Our Business Climate is Not.” The ad goes on to cite the state’s Private Attorneys General Act. The law lets employees “initiate claims on behalf of his or her fellow co-workers and the state’s regulatory agency.” If there are any resulting fines, they get divvied up: 25 percent to the employee and 75 percent to the Labor and Workforce Development Agency. CABIA said that it is trying to reform the law and asked that if Amazon does relocate to California to please join the effort. CABIA said part of its job is to inform the public about the harm the law has done to employers. And “alerting companies like Amazon at what they’re getting into if they locate HQ2 her in Los Angeles.”

Essentially they said if you don’t support us in hating Donald Trump, hating Republicans and Conservatives, and disrespecting America you are not wanted as viewers. This is clearly the leftist philosophy.

If you do not agree with everything we say, if you do not vote the way we want you to, and if you dare to oppose us we will punish you. What they seem to forget is that the American people already rejected their philosophy in the last election.

ISIS Loses Its Capitol http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9054-ISIS-Loses-Its-Capitol It has been confirmed that U.S. backed Syrian rebels have taken away the de-facto capitol of the ISIS empire, Raqqa. This is more evidence that the ISIS forces are disintegrating rapidly, and the vicious group of radical Islam fighters is losing its capacity to maintain its army and of territory. This is something that was unexpected a year ago when Donald Trump had just been elected and the U.S. military was still operating under the restrictive rules of the Obama administration. However, the victories on the battlefield have not eliminated the ISIS terrorist threat, but will hopefully reduce their capacity to recruit foreign fighters in other countries.

In addition, the Hollywood liberal elitists who have told the rest of America for years that they were smarter and had the moral high ground over the people in “fly over country” are turning out to be liars, hypocrites, and even criminals.

Among those emerging are former child actors like Corey Feldman has come forward to claim that he and many young boys were subjected to abuse, and that pedophilia is rampant in the Hollywood culture.

Campos was scheduled to do several media interviews last Thursday, but failed to show up. His union representative, who had arranged the interviews, received an anonymous text message telling him that Campos had been taken to an Urgent Care facility.

Nothing had been heard since, until yesterday morning when MGM claimed that Campos was fine and would talk publicly about his encounter with shooter Stephen Paddock when he was ready. For many people, this has just deepened the mystery.

NFL Owners Clueless http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9051-NFL-Owners-Clueless In what was widely billed as an important meeting between NFL players and the team owners the outcome left a lot to be desired. First there were only eleven team owners present and while the meeting was claimed to have produced constructive dialogue, the real issue that led to the meeting was claimed not to have been discussed. This of course was the disrespectful attitude toward the American flag and the national anthem.

Yet, neither Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner who has been on all sides of the issue, nor the owners seem to comprehend that the fans that support the league and ultimately pay the salaries of the players are leaving the brand in mass. It turns out that the owners and just let the players dominate the meeting. Then the NFL told the fans to drop dead and that it supports the disrespectful players. This occurred the day after Monday night football had its fewest viewers ever.

This type of rhetoric has been used before by the North Koreans, but is being taken more seriously as their weapons capability increases. The U.S. military is continuing to move assets in the area including more naval ships as well as air force fighters and bombers.

London Police Plan to Focus on Serious Crimes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9048-London-Police-Plan-to-Focus-on-Serious-Crimes London police have surrendered to the inevitable. They will no longer investigate “low-level” crimes such as “shoplifting and vandalism.” In a time of budget cutting the London police say it’s just “not practical.” Instead police constables plan to be “focused on serious crime and cases where there is a realistic chance that we will be able to solve it.” Police plan to pursue crimes such as “offensive” comments online. Police arrested 3,395 people in 2016 for violating the Malicious Communications Act. This is an increase of 53 percent since 2014. Half of the investigations ended up being thrown out giving critics the opportunity to accuse police of being “overzealous in their attempts to take on so called trolls.” Former Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police Sir Peter Fahy, said as far back as 2013, the police did not “actively pursue” six out of every ten crime reports. “Crimes would be ‘screened out’ by the call center staff members of the public initially spoke to, if they did not feel the reports met certain ‘solvability criteria’ — CCTV footage [and] good forensic footage.” Britain is currently seeing a surge in crime particularly violent crime.

She told the crowd that she is a “liberty loving constitutional conservative who is ready to go to Washington, D.C. and drain the swamp.” She pledged that she would work relentlessly “to pull Obamacare out by the roots.” She asked voters to send her to the Senate to help President Trump to finish what he’s started. Supporters broke into enthusiastic chants of “Build that wall” when she talked about illegal immigration into the U.S. She promised to make “sure that the Border Patrol [has] the money and manpower to do their job.” She said that illegal immigrants need to “expect consequences rather than rewards.” “This is not going to be an easy task. If we want a different outcome from Washington, D.C., we have got to send different people there.” Her campaign rally laid out the themes that she expects to promote in the coming year. She has an ambitious agenda to secure the border, stop illegal immigration,” stop amnesty, root out Obamacare, fix the tax code, and strengthen the military. Ward is being supported by Breitbart’s Steve Bannon as a candidate taking on the Republican establishment.

It makes absolutely no sense to shelter people who are in our state illegally and committing crimes with taxpayer dollars.” In an editorial he wrote, “Jerry Brown and liberal Sacramento politicians are draining citizenship of meaning and making a mockery of that history and those aspirations.“ Allen called sanctuary policies “contrary” to a nation of laws. “As a nation of laws, we cannot pick and choose which ones we’ll obey.” The Republican Assemblyman tried to defund sanctuary cities in California, but the legislation was stopped by the Democratically controlled Assembly. He said that Democratic super majorities prevent good ideas from getting enacted into law. Super majorities also keep Democrats from finding bi-partisan solutions to problems in the state.

Soros Donates Massive Fortune to His Foundation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9045-Soros-Donates-Massive-Fortune-to-His-Foundation George Soros donated $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations (OSF). The transfer allows Soros to avoid paying death taxes on his massive wealth. And it allows his network of non-profits to continue his leftist agenda in Europe, the United States, and around the world. The man who fancies himself “as some kind of god” has used is organization in Europe to defeat populist candidates who don’t ascribe to his open borders agenda. His organization has funneled money to government officials through a German think tank. He sees the influx of migrants as a new opportunity to influence migration policies in Europe. In the United States, his foundation has funded Trump resistance groups, Black Lives Matters, as well as opposition research into critics of Islam. Even though Soros is an advocate of big government and higher taxes, he has avoided paying at least $7 billion in taxes to the IRS. It is not clear if his $18 billion donation to his foundation lets him avoid his tax bill. The Soros foundation is considered the second-largest philanthropic organization in the United States.

Unmasking Scandal Deepens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9044-Unmasking-Scandal-Deepens The Obama unmasking scandal is becoming murkier. According to former UN ambassador Samantha Power, someone in addition to her was also making unmasking requests. And that person was doing it under Samantha Power’s name. Power told this to congressional investigators last week. Representative Trey Gowdy said in an interview that Power was “emphatic” that someone else was making the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. “Her perspective, her testimony is, ‘they may be under my name, but I did not make those requests.’” 260 unmasking requests have been attributed to Power. The details of some of those unmaskings have been leaked to the media illegally. Gowdy said, “If there is someone else making requests on behalf of a principal in the intelligence community we need to know that because we’re getting ready to reauthorize a program that also has a masking component to it.”

Even though Congress questioned the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom, the FBI did not disclose the bribery investigation that was ongoing. Former Representative Mike Rogers said neither he nor anyone on his committee were told of “Russian nuclear corruption.” “Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them. The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise is breathtaking.” Several individuals who participated in the Russian nuclear bribery investigation are now involved in the investigation about possible Russian influence in the 2016 presidential campaign. U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, now President Trump’s current deputy attorney general, supervised the nuclear investigation along with Andrew McCabe who currently serves as deputy FBI director.

Latest Travel Ban Halted By Federal Judge http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9042-Latest-Travel-Ban-Halted-By-Federal-Judge A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Trump’s latest executive order restricting citizens of several countries from entering the United States. The ban was due to be implemented this week. The ban affects people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, and North Korea as well as some Venezuelan government officials. Hawaii argued that “federal immigration law did not give [the president] the authority to impose the restrictions on six of those countries.” Judge Watson said that the White House policy “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more that 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States.’” The judge said that the “national security rationale was undermined by the fact that it is not known how the president settled on the countries designated by the ban.” The White House called the ruling “dangerously flawed” and expressed confidence that the ruling would be overturned. The ACLU has separate challenges to the travel ban in Maryland. But the court has not yet made a ruling.

The Clinton, Russian, Nuclear Corruption Scandal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9041-The-Clinton,-Russian,-Nuclear-Corruption-Scandal In 2009, the FBI began gathering information about Russian officials engaging in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering in a case involving an American uranium trucking company. At the same time the FBI discovered that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow.” Rather than bring charges, the Obama Department of Justice continued to investigate, but did not tell Congress or the public. During the investigation, the Obama administration “approved the sale of the Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. This sale gave Russia control of 20 percent of America’a uranium. A second decision by the Obama administration gave a subsidiary of Russia’s Rosatom approval to “sell uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants. After the sale of Uranium One was approved, the chairman of the company donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundations. And shortly after the deal was approved, former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech he gave in Moscow.

Showdown With Fusion GPS http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9040--Showdown-With-Fusion-GPS Fusion GPS is the opposition research company that was hired to dig up dirt on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On October 4, the House Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena to the company seeking to compel testimony from Glenn Simpson and two others. Attorneys for Fusion GPS responded on Monday saying that the three officials with the company intend to “invoke their constitutional privileges not to testify.” The attorneys told committee members in their letter that “the panel shouldn’t even bother to call Simpson to the hearing room . . . because he won’t answer their questions under any circumstances.” The attorneys for Fusion GPS attacked chairman Nunes saying that the subpoena violates his recusal and “undermines the legitimacy of [the] investigation.” The FBI has refused to provide answers to the House Intelligence Committee regarding the dossier. Several deadlines have passed for the agency to provide requested information.

You’re Papers, Please http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9039-You’re-Papers,-Please In addition to being scanned, groped, and their persons assaulted, Americans in some states may soon need a passport just to fly domestically. The 2005 Real ID Act required states to upgrade their state-issued IDs. Even after extending a grace period,22 states are “under review,” and one is listed as having an extension, according to the TSA’s website. The current deadline for states to comply is January 22, 2018. After that date, people attempting to fly may be “detained at airport security and prevented from boarding flights if they don’t have a passport or other TSA-approved form of identification, such as a grid card, border crossing card or military ID.” The legislation was passed to supposedly make “it harder to obtain a driver’s license with counterfeit records.” Currently, it can take about six weeks to go through the process of applying for and receiving a passport. If states are deemed not compliant, then the waiting period will increase due to increased demand for passports.

JFK Assassination Records Up For Release . . . Or Not http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9038-JFK-Assassination-Records-Up-For-Release-.-.-.-Or-Not Under the 1992 JFK Records Act, 3,100 secret documents relating to the JFK assassination are to be released October 26. The documents have never been seen by the public. Another 30,000 documents that have been partially released are also scheduled for full release. Although the National Archives has not confirmed it, the CIA is reportedly asking the president to delay the document’s release by another 25 years. The classified documents reportedly included “top-secret testimony of former CIA officers . . . Letters about the case from J. Edgar Hoover and Jackie Kennedy . . . and the operational file of E. Howard Hunt, a career spy and Watergate burglar.” Authors Rogers Stone and Gerald Posner who both have different theories as to who killed President Kennedy, have teamed up to ask President Trump to release the documents. Posner said, “The files should have been release long ago. The government does this all the time, over classified documents and then holds on to them for decades under the guise of ‘national security.’ Al the secrecy just feeds people’s suspicions that the government has something to hide and adds feel to the conspiracy theories.” Roger Stone said, “I know CIA Director Pompeo is urging the President to delay release of these records for another 25 years. They must reflect badly on the CIA even though virtually everyone involved is long dead.”

He had specifically requested an opportunity to do so, but never showed up. His union representative said he received a text message from an unidentified person saying that Campos had been taken to an urgent care facility last Thursday. Campos had not been heard from since and the urgent care facility where he was supposedly taken said that none of its branches had treated anyone by that name. The owners of Mandalay Bay also claim not to have any knowledge of his whereabouts.

Roofers Stand for Anthem http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9036-Roofers-Stand-for-Anthem While NFL players were continuing to express their distaste and disrespect for the American flag, national anthem, the military, and veterans a small part of the real America was captured in an iconic photo in Maine. On Saturday as the national anthem was being played prior to a high school game in Maine, fans and players in the stadium were standing.

Then someone noticed that three roofers working on a nearby building had put down their tools and were also standing for the anthem. These were obviously not elite millionaire athletes, just average everyday Americans who showed their respect for their country.

Political Correctness Running Amok for Halloween http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9035-Political-Correctness-Running-Amok-for-Halloween From universities like Princeton to Texas A & M administrators and faculty are taking time and resources away from teaching students classes on the subjects that students are paying for and instead indoctrinating them on Halloween political correctness. Students are being told they cannot wear costumes that are culturally oriented such as sombreros, Indian head dresses, geisha costumes etc. because someone might be offended.

This is causing some people to ask how far this P.C. movement will go. Will costumes depicting witches, zombies, and vampires also be banned because they might offend someone that believes in such things?

Hillary Finds Someone Else to Blame for Her Election Loss http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9034-Hillary-Finds-Someone-Else-to-Blame-for-Her-Election-Loss It seems like every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth it is to blame someone else or something else for her loss to Donald Trump without ever taking any blame herself. She has blamed Putin, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and James Comey among others, and now is blaming British politician Nigel Farage. He was the primary force behind the successful passage of BREXIT that withdrew Great Britain from the European Union.

This bizarre claim was made in an interview where she also defended the NFL anthem protests and blamed that on Trump also. Farage called her claim about him and BREXIT ridiculous.

Rivera also praised the work being done by the federal government, and said that Trump will get negative reporting by the press, no matter what he does. They will always claim that Trump is “wicked”.

Even teams like Atlanta and the New York Jets with normally very loyal fan bases are showing the effects of the anger of Americans over the disrespect toward the flag and the national anthem.

In New Orleans Saints fans were infuriated when several players refused to stand for a moment of silence to honor a New Orleans police officer who had been killed in the line of duty just a few days before. The NFL team owners are supposed to be meeting this week to discuss the issues, but based on their previous actions, there will be little real action taken.

Ophelia Batters Ireland http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9031-Ophelia-Batters-Ireland Even though it was just a tropical storm when it hit Ireland, Ophelia caused at least three deaths and significant damage throughout the island nation. Waves as high as 30 feet pounded parts of the coast, and over 350,000 homes and businesses are without power with the total expected to rise. Schools are closed as are some hospitals and many of the roads in the nation are impassable.

This was the strongest storm to hit Ireland since Hurricane Debbie in 1961. The entire public transportation system is shut down and almost two hundred flights have been cancelled at the country’s two airports. Now Scotland is bracing for a hit.

Bergdahl Pleads Guilty http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9029-Bergdahl-Pleads-Guilty U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has pled guilty before a military court to charges of desertion and misbehavior in the face of the enemy. He could face a life sentence on the charges, and since the army prosecutor did not make a deal on sentencing it will up to the judge to decide punishment.

In 2009 Bergdahl deserted his post in Afghanistan and was picked up by the Taliban. Several American soldiers were killed and wounded trying to find the deserter. He was with the Taliban for five years and then President Barack Obama traded five top Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl, hailing him as a hero.

Democrats To Target Paul Ryan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9028-Democrats-To-Target-Paul-Ryan House Speaker Paul Ryan will be a useful target for Democrats in the 2018 mid-terms. Democrats plan to go into conservative districts that President Trump won in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio and target Republicans. When Democrats go into those districts, “A message about establishment Washington Republicans is very powerful and does not alienate voters.” Democrats are “accusing Ryan and ‘establishment Republicans’ of ‘catering to drug companies and special interests’ in their Obamacare reform plans.” Democrats have created a website called www.PaulRyanFancy.com. It has the tagline: “Paul Ryan: Just Too Fancy.” Democrat Strategist Charlie Kelly said, “We’ve given this guy a free pass for too long. This guy owns the Republican brand. he owns the agenda. he’s the face of that.” The Democrat’s plan mimics Republican efforts in 2010 that ran against Nancy Pelosi and San Francisco values. Republicans flipped control of the House. Currently Paul Ryan is less popular than President Trump who is at 34 percent. Ryan’s approval rating will likely fall further as Democrats fire their attacks at him directly.

Catalan Leaders Arrested http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9027-Catalan-Leaders-Arrested A judge in Spain ordered two leading Catalan secessionists jailed without bail “pending an investigation for alleged sedition.” Prosecutors say the two men “played central roles in orchestrating pro-independence protests.” The High Court also banned Catalan’s police chief from leaving Spain while he is investigated. His passport was seized. In response to the arrests, the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) called for peaceful protests around Catalonia on Tuesday. Catalan’s president tweeted, “Spain jails Catalonia’s civil society leaders for organizing peaceful demonstrations. Sadly, we have political prisoners again.” A reference to Spain’s military dictatorship under Franco. The president of Catalan evaded giving a direct answer to Prime Minister Rajoy on whether or not he had “declared unilateral independence in a speech last week.” Instead the president called for “sincere and honest” dialogue over the next two months. The prime minister responded by saying that Spain’s government might trigger the constitution’s Article 155 that would suspend the Catalan region’s autonomous rule. Spain’s government has rejected any talks until Catalan’s president “gives up the independence demand.”

Former vice president Biden awarded the medal to McCain thanking him for his “lifetime of sacrifice and service.” Biden said, “Courage and loyalty — I can think of no better description for the man we’re honoring tonight. . . “ In accepting the award, Senator McCain said, “I’m humbled by it, and I’ll try my best to to prove too unworthy of it.” He went on to say, “I’ve been repaid a thousand times over with adventures, with good company, with the satisfaction of serving something more important than myself, of being a bit player in the extraordinary story of America. And I am so grateful.” The independent senator voted against two Republican bills that would have partially repealed portions of Obamacare. He has been an outspoken proponent of using American military might to intervene in the internal affairs of other nations.

FBI Confirms Comey Did Draft Clinton Exoneration Months Before Ending Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9025--FBI-Confirms-Comey-Did-Draft-Clinton-Exoneration-Months-Before-Ending-Investigation It was confirmed on Monday that former FBI Director James Comey did indeed begin to draft his exoneration statement of Hillary Clinton months before his July 2016 announcement. Comey’s actions were discovered by Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassley after reviewing a transcript. Grassley asked the FBI for verification that Comey had begun writing the document before the investigation had been completed. In the normal course of an investigation, FBI agents are trained to interview all witnesses and to complete the investigation prior to drawing any conclusions. Comey’s actions make it appear as though he’d already made up his mind not to charge Clinton with any crimes even before she’d been interviewed. But if he’d already made up his mind, then why did he take several more months to “announce the end of the investigation during a heated presidential race?”

Trump is Steamrolling Obama’s Legacy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9024-Trump-is-Steamrolling-Obama’s-Legacy President Trump is using his executive authority to dismantle as much of the Obama legacy as he can. President Obama could not get much done with a Republican Congress. So he issued executive orders, rules and regulations to enact his agenda. During the 2016 campaign, President Obama warned Democratic voters that much of his legacy was hanging in the balance. “Donald Trump’s closing argument is ‘What do you have to lose?’ The answer is: Everything. All the progress we’ve made right now is on the ballot,” said the former president. According to a legal fellow at the Heritage Foundations, President Trump “is undoing unilateral executive actions of a prior president that went beyond the executive authority of the president.” “Trump is not being given credit or praise the way he should for what he is accomplishing: restoring the rule of law, bringing the executive branch back within the parameters and limits of the Constitution and restoring to Congress authority that prior presidents have stolen.”

Supreme Court Takes Privacy Case Affecting Data Stored Overseas http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9023-Supreme-Court-Takes-Privacy-Case-Affecting-Data-Stored-Overseas The Supreme Court will decide a case that tests how far prosecutors can go in demanding information stored on computers overseas. The case stems from a 2013 investigation into drug trafficking. Microsoft turned over emails that were stored on servers in the United States. But the company refused to turn over emails kept on servers in Ireland. The District trial court ruled in favor of the government. An appeals court reversed the decision and upheld the “privacy interests of users.” The government is arguing that law enforcement is at a disadvantage after the appellate court ruling. “Under this opinion, hundreds if not thousands of investigations of crimes—ranging from terrorism to child pornography, to fraud—are being or will be hampered by the government’s inability to obtain electronic evidence,” argued government lawyers. Microsoft is arguing that the courts should not do a run around Congress. It is Congress that needs to modernize the law and create a framework whereby law enforcement can obtain electronic data when it is abroad.

Hope For Bill to Outlaw Abortions After 20 Weeks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9022-Hope-For-Bill-to-Outlaw-Abortions-After-20-Weeks Senate Majority Leader McConnell said that legislation to ban abortions 20 weeks and beyond has the support of almost all his Republican members. He said that he expects to bring the bill to a vote at some point. The bill would ban abortions after five months except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. If the law is violated, abortion providers could face up to five years in prison. Republicans passed the same legislation in the House recently. Three Democrats crossed the aisle and voted to restrict abortion. Senator Lindsey Graham introduced the bill into the Senate. Graham said, “I don’t believe abortion, five months into pregnancy, makes us a better nation. America is at her best when she’s standing up of the least among us, and the sooner we pass this legislation into law, the better. We are on the right side of history.” Now that McConnell has announced his support for the legislation, pro-life groups are hopeful that the legislation will be passed and signed into law.

Iran’s Rhetoric Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9021-Iran’s-Rhetoric-Heats-Up After the United States decertified Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement, Iran began to threaten the United Sates. Leaders vowed to go down the path towards creating a nuclear weapon. Iran’s chairman of the parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission said that Iran had no choice but to “follow North Korea.” "The U.S. president showed by his remarks again that the U.S. government is not trustworthy and the U.S. behavior towards the nuclear deal persuades views of countries like North Korea.” He went on to say, “If the U.S. Congress decides to violate and abrogates the nuclear deal and its undertakings, the Islamic Republic of Iran will have no motivation to continue the path.” President Trump and several members of Congress believe the nuclear agreement is defective. If Congress passes legislation restricting Iran, the agreement would serve as a parallel nuclear agreement to the one already in existence. According to Iran’s chairman of parliament’s foreign policy commission, Iran’s ballistic missile program is “not negotiable at all.” If Iran does not agree to any further restrictions on its weapon’s program, Congress may impose harsh sanctions on Iran.

Federal prosecutors rested their case last Wednesday. Prosecutors argued that “Menendez was showered with luxury gifts, travel, and campaign cash by Florida eye doctor Salomen Melgen.” Prosecutors say that in exchange, Menendez used his position and influence to intervene in “billings disputes with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.” Defense attorneys argued that prosecutors had not tied “Menendez’s friendship with Melgen to any of Menendez’s specific actions . . . “ On Monday the judge rejected a defense motion to have the charges dismissed. This court concludes that a rational jury could deduce that the defendants entered into a quid pro quo agreement. The jury is at liberty to accept or reject.” Now, defense attorneys will have to defend Senator Menendez against 18 corruption charges. Fellow Democratic senators have withheld judgment on Senator Menendez and whether or not he should resign if he is convicted.

Many Seniors Keep Working to Make Ends Meet in Retirement http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9019-Many-Seniors-Keep-Working-to-Make-Ends-Meet-in-Retirement Americans are not coming close to saving enough for their retirement. A majority of people 65 and older are dependent upon Social Security for at least half their retirement income. Twenty percent of Social Security recipients 65 or older have no other income. And for a third of people 65 and older, Social Security represents 90 percent of their retirement income. Compounding the problem, the federal government has done a poor job of funding Social Security. The funds that people pay into the system are not put into a lock box. Instead they are put into the general fund and spent on current appropriations. Congress funds Social Security every year based on what the program expects to spend in the current year. Currently the federal government has an unfunded 75-year liability for Social Security and Medicare of $46.7 trillion. Seniors are compensating by working into their golden years. Many are becoming seasonal laborers. In 2016 18.6 percent of seniors were still working.

The purpose of the joint exercises is to promote “communications, interoperability and partnership in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations.” In a new development, it’s been learned that on board one of the American submarines is “a unit of U.S. special forces tasked with carrying out ‘decapitation’ operations.” The objective of the special forces would be to take out North Korean leadership in the event of war. As part of the exercises, the U.S. military will practice “evacuating noncombatant Americans out of South Korea in the event of war and other emergencies.” Fighter jets, Apache attack helicopters, and naval choppers will be involved in the operations to monitor North Korea’s ground and naval forces. On Monday, North Korea accused the United States of pushing North Korea into creating a hydrogen bomb.

Boy Scouts Cave to Political Correctness http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9017-Boy-Scouts-Cave-to-Political-Correctness For over 100 years the Boy Scouts of America was probably the most respected youth group in the country. It was known for teaching boys to be men and encouraging virtues such as belief in God, love of country, personal morality, and service to others. All of these virtues are generally despised by those on the left and the Boy Scouts have been under assault for years.

Gradually, they have succumbed to political correctness and allowed gay youth members, then gay adult leaders, then transgenders, and now they have opened the door to girls being members at all levels. For many long time scout supporters and leaders this is the final nail in the coffin for the BSA.

Other players on some teams took the coward’s way out and hid in the locker room during the anthem. Some of the networks broadcasting the games just cut away to commercials during the anthem. A lot of people think this is also a cowardly act.

The league commissioner Roger Goodell can’t make up his mind what to do, and the owners are also divided. All of this is just leading to more fans throwing up their hands in disgust and walking away from pro football and it overpayed spoiled players.

In addition, both Chelsea and Bill Clinton were at an event in Boston over the weekend and were directly asked about the donations. Bill ignored the question and Chelsea ran off and ducked into a limo on two occasions when he was asked by reporters what the foundation was going to do. On numerous occasions questions have been raised about how the foundation used or misused funds it raised, and the Clintons have never been pushed for explanations.

HHS Preparing Major Move http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9014-HHS-Preparing-Major-Move In a major move that could shake up the abortion debate the federal Department of Health and Human Services under President Donald Trump is proposing that it officially define human life as beginning at conception. This has never been done before by the federal government and the liberal courts have therefore been able to go along with the pro-abortion groups that claim that human life does not really began until birth.

That is the way they justify the slaughter of unborn babies. However, with this official government designation groups like Planned Parenthood would have to prove that the HHS definition is wrong. The vast majority of actual scientific evidence proves that the conception definition is correct.

In a wide range of bizarre interviews Hillary Clinton continued her blame game insisting that her loss in the 2016 presidential race was caused by everyone but her. She reasserted her claim that the Russians were primarily responsible, and also stated the Putin had been rewarded by Trump for his efforts. She offered no specifics to support this outlandish claim. When asked about why it took her so long to condemn Harvey Weinstein she pivoted to saying that the people had just elected an admitted sexual predator to the White House. She then pivoted again when asked about Bill Clinton’s sexual activities by dismissing that as all in the past.

ISIS Continues to Collapse http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9012-ISIS-Continues-to-Collapse Just over a year ago the Islamic State seemed to be invincible. It controlled large areas in Iraq and Syria and was expanding its affiliates into parts of Northern Africa and even the Philippines. ISIS was being fought by Iraqi troops supported by a coalition of support aircraft and troops from the United States and other nations. In Syria it was under attack by several coalitions. However, under Obama ISIS was thriving because the rules of engagement imposed on U.S. troops kept them from being effective. That changed under Donald Trump as American military might was unleashed. Now ISIS fighters are being buried in mass graves and surrendering in droves.

Hurricane Ophelia Heads for British Isles http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9011-Hurricane-Ophelia-Heads-for-British-Isles As a category 3 hurricane, Ophelia is the most powerful storm ever recorded in the northeast Atlantic Ocean. It has maximum sustained winds of 110 miles per hour and is expected to bring heavy rain when it plows into Great Britain and then Ireland. This is a part of the world that rarely sees hurricanes although there are sometimes powerful storms in the north Atlantic.

Ophelia is expected to weaken somewhat when it gets into colder water it is still expected to do significant damage in a part of the world that is not prepared for this type of weather.

Venezuela Facing Debt Crisis http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9010-Venezuela-Facing-Debt-Crisis Nicolas Maduro’s socialist dictatorship in Venezuela is facing a major debt crisis at the end of October with over $3.5 billion in debts coming due. There appears to be no way the necessary payments can be made since sanctions imposed by the United States have severely limited the country’s access to financial institutions in order to borrow more money.

It is expected that Maduro will try to kick the can down the road by postponing some payments with the promise of further reducing imports. However, this means less food available for the citizens of Venezuela. Most of them are already struggling to get three meals a day for themselves and their children.

California Fires Continue to be Out of Control http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9009-California-Fires-Continue-to-be-Out-of-Control With at least 40 people dead, hundreds missing, and thousands of homes and businesses destroyed, the wildfires in California are now officially the worst in the state’s history. Some are still burning out of control despite the valiant effort of over 10,000 firefighters supported by air tankers and helicopters. The high winds that have kept the 16 fires spreading over 214,000 acres have finally started to taper off, but no rain is in the forecast until at least Wednesday. Thousands of people continue to be under mandatory evacuation orders as the threat of new fires springing up continues to grow.

Police Refused Service http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9008-Police-Refused-Service In Denison, Texas, two police officers were refused service by a Whataburger employee. The police chief went on Facebook to describe the refusal of service. According to the chief, the employee also cursed at the officers. The female employee claimed that “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists.” A police supervisor found evidence of a “routine arrest” but saw no “physical altercation and no injuries to anyone.” Whataburger officials investigated internally and dismissed the employee. “We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us. We’ve also reached out to the police sergeant to apologize and plan to speak with the other officers involved to apologize in person and make this right.” The police chief updated his Facebook post to reflect the outreach by Whataburger officials. “I was grateful for the apology but noted concern that as these incidents become more prevalent, apologies can be perceived as just a band-aid to a bigger problem,” the chief said. The chief told the local community, “We hope you’ll give Whataburger another chance as we will.” Whataburger has a long history of supporting first responders. After Hurricane Harvey, restaurants “delivered hot food to many disaster relief workers.” The free meals lasted for several days.

The Islamization of Germany http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9007-The-Islamization-of-Germany Germany’s Interior Minister is encouraging the idea of adding Muslim religious holidays into Germany’s calendar. “Where there are many Muslims why shouldn’t we consider a Muslim holiday?” The suggestion sparked a backlash from fellow Christian Democrat Union member, Wolfgang Bosbach. He said that anyone in Germany could celebrate whatever religious holiday they wanted. But “Whether the state should also protect non-Christian holidays with legal regulation in future is a different issue entirely.” A leader in the Christian Social Union party said, “We won’t consider introducing Muslim public holidays in Germany.” In 2015, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel said, “Ilam belongs to Germany.” But Germans take issue with Merkel’s confident assertion. The flood of Islamic refugees has sharply divided Germans. Half of German respondents in a University of Leipzig study said that “Muslims [have] left them feeling like strangers in their own country.” Additionally, “More than 40 percent felt Muslims should be prohibited from migrating to Germany.” Currently there are 4.4 million Muslims in Germany. The country has a population of 80.6 million people.

Hillary Clinton Accepts Award in Wales for Commitment to (Some) Children http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9006-Hillary-Clinton-Accepts-Award-in-Wales-for-Commitment-to-(Some)-Children Hillary Clinton received an award at Swansea University in Wales. As she exited her vehicle, the former first lady was greeted by boos and jeers. Someone also called her a “fascist.” Clinton was given the award for her “‘commitment’ to promoting the rights of families and children.” The law school was renamed the “Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law.” During her speech, the former U.S. senator inserted herself into Britain’s internal affairs saying that Brexit had “disadvantaged” some of Britain’s children and that the Brexit vote was the reason for “bullying in British schools.” “Teachers and schools are reporting an outbreak of bullying and racially motivated insults,’ she said. As a result of Brexit she said, “[T]he residency rights of half a million children, including many who were born in the UK, are hanging in the balance.” “So there are reports of children being worried, feeling uncertain, even unsafe. Trying to make sense of their places in the world.” While Clinton claims to support children, she is an extreme abortion rights advocate. She supports the right to abort an unborn child up until the moment of birth for any reason. Mrs. Clinton has been in Britain to promote her book that explains away her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Legislation to Limit U.S. Involvement in Yemen http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9005-Legislation-to-Limit-U.S.-Involvement-in-Yemen A small bipartisan group of House members plan to introduce legislation that would force the United States to remove American forces from the Middle East conflict in Yemen. The War Powers Act requires Congressional assent for American military involvement in an overseas conflict. The U.S. military has been providing refueling services to Saudi and United Arab Emirates jets. The airstrikes by the Saudis and UAE “have been indiscriminate and amount to a leading cause of the massive civilian casualties to date.” An estimated 800,000 Yemenis have contracted cholera. The Saudis have created a famine in Yemen and have denied medical aid. The United States is providing support to Saudi Arabia as a way to “give concessions” after Saudi Arabia opposed the nuclear deal with Iran. The legislation is expected to come up as a privileged resolution. And as such, the House is expected to vote on it right away. Supporters of U.S. involvement in the Saudi Yemen war are expected to undermine the vote claiming that it is “covered by the 2001 Authorization for Us of Military Force.

Russians Urge U.S. To Get Its Act Together On Nuclear Deal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9004-Russians-Urge-U.S.-To-Get-Its-Act-Together-On-Nuclear-Deal The Russian foreign ministry urged the Trump administration to stop meddling in the Iranian nuclear deal. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said, "There is an American saying our overseas colleagues often use in such situations: ‘If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.’” "It seems to be a wrong way to follow as the existing documents are working quite efficiently," he continued. He said that Iran is “fully implementing its liabilities” under the agreement. But warned that the same could not be said of the Unites States if the Trump administration abandons the agreement. The foreign minister said that what really needs to be improved in the agreement is “the implementation of the existing agreements by the U.S. side.” He said that Russia would continue to pressure Iran on “the importance of keeping the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” going. On Friday, President Trump said, I am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification.” He did not commit the United States to immediately pull out of the agreement. Congress will have 60 days to strengthen the agreement or impose new sanctions on Iran.

The Indispensable Senator Collins http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9003-The-Indispensable-Senator-Collins Senator Collins announced last week that she would not run for governor of Maine but that she would continue to work in a bipartisan way in the Senate. The senator believes there is an important role for her to play in the Senate. "I looked at all that is going on in Washington today. The issues that we're dealing with are so consequential. I do play a key role as being one of those senators who can work across the aisle and actually get things done.” Senator Collins said that she misses Maine as well as being around her family and friends. She said that a governor “is [a] more hands-on job where you can do more to promote economic opportunities. . . “ But none of this was sufficient to persuade her to leave the senate. "I want to continue to play a key role in advancing policies that ... bring peace and stabilities to a troubled and violent world. And I have concluded that the best way I can contribute to these priorities is to remain a member of the U.S. Senate.” While Senator Collins considers herself a moderate, she’s taken extreme positions in support of abortion on demand and funding Planned Parenthood. She’s used her position and influence to frustrate Republican efforts to overturn Obamacare.

U.S. Should Stay In Nuclear Agreement Says Senator http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9002-U.S.-Should-Stay-In-Nuclear-Agreement-Says-Senator Senator Al Franken went on at length on Sunday about the president’s decision to decertify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement. Senator Franken said, "Our European allies, Russia, China, are not going to pull out so it will just leave us isolated. It undercuts our leadership in the world and, boy, with North Korea, this doesn't help.” "What kind of message does that send, that we abrogate every treaty that we sign, whether it's Paris or this? Or every agreement? This just undermines our nation as a leader.” Senator Franken went on to praise the Obama era agreement, pointing out that Iran is prevented from obtaining a nuclear weapon. To bolster his position, Franken cited the comments of Secretary of State Tillerson and other officials who urged the United States to stay in the agreement. "They have been saying Iran is in compliance and pulling out of this deal is bad for the United States and in so many different ways," Franken said. President Trump said that he was not pulling the United States out of the agreement . . . at least not until Congress fails to come up with ways of strengthening the agreement. Congress has 60 days to find ways to strengthen the agreement or impose new sanctions on Iran.

Media All Atwitter About President’s Tweet on Twitter http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9001-Media-All-Atwitter-About-President’s-Tweet-on-Twitter Last week, President Trump suggested in a tweet that media companies have become “so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged an, if appropriate, revoked.” On Sunday, Bob Schieffer, a venerated establishment media figure, said the president’s tweet was “undermining the foundations of our democracy.” “What I do take seriously is when he [Trump] tries to destroy the credibility of the media. An independent press that can gather information that people can compare to the government’s versions of events — that is what we do.” In contrast, earlier in the week, chief of staff John Kelly went before a White House press briefing and scolded the press for literally making things up about the goings on in the White House. He put to rest rumors that he was going to be fired or resign. A commissioner for the FCC said that the agency was not going to revoke any licenses. Commissioner Jessica Rosenwrcel said, “I think it’s important for all the commissioners to make clear that they support the First Amendment. And that the agency will not revoke a broadcast license simply because the president is dissatisfied with the licensees’ coverage.”

Communities Ready Their Development Plans for Amazon http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-9000-Communities-Ready-Their-Development-Plans-for-Amazon Amazon is seeking to build a new headquarters. In an effort to attract Amazon’s attention, local governments are offering all kinds of deals. At stake are an estimated 50,000 high-wage jobs, billions in direct investment, and associated economic activity. Some localities have come up with gimmicks to attract Amazon’s attention. Stonecrest, Georgia has offered to change its name to Amazon if the company moves there. In North Carolina, officials have asked residents to ask Amazon’s Alexa if the new headquarters should be built in the state’s Triad area. All fun aside, Amazon is looking for incentive packages that will drive the final relocation decision. States are eager to propose big incentives in an effort to ramp up slow job growth that has plagued many states since the recession. Amazon’s facilities in 44 counties across the country generally support an estimated 2,600 indirect jobs in local communities such as restaurants. The winner of the headquarters competition will “need a major international airport, a workforce that is trained and capable of filling the thousands of new jobs, and the infrastructure necessary to accommodate all the new traffic.”

Additional Obamacare Tax to Drive Healthcare Premiums Even Higher http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8999-Additional-Obamacare-Tax-to-Drive-Healthcare-Premiums-Even-Higher Under Obamacare, the insurance premiums that health insurers collect will be subject to a fee which the IRS considers a tax. Companies generally pass along those taxes and costs to consumers. In 2017, Congress stopped the collection of this tax for one year. The moratorium saved taxpayers $13.9 billion. But in 2018 the collection of the tax is expected to resume, adding more financial misery to taxpayers. The tax will be added to the premiums that people have to pay and drive up the price of premiums by 2.7 percent in 2018. In 2018, the tax is expected to take $22 billion out of taxpayer’s pockets. Over ten years, taxpayers will pay a projected $270 billion. Individuals in the non-group market could see an increase of $165 a year and families in the group market could see premiums rise by $523. As the cost of premiums continue to rise, more people are expected to drop out of the market and increasing the number of uninsured.

Is Trump DOJ Protecting The Clintons? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8998-Is-Trump-DOJ-Protecting-The-Clintons? Judicial Watch is seeking records related to the meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. The meeting took place while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton. According to Judicial Watch, the Department of Justice has redacted the talking points memo that was created by the Obama administration to explain the meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton. The talking points show how the Obama DOJ “spun the scandal.” Judicial Watch said, “[T]he Justice Department is acting as if Hillary Clinton won the election, and acting in a way that continues to protect Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.” “The fact that we are in court battling the Trump administration on Clinton scandal information . . . is just unbelievable.” The DOJ defends its decision to redact the talking points memos “under a legal exemption allowing the federal government to withhold deliberative information pursued by citizens via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.” The FBI recently uncovered at least 30 documents relating to the meeting after the agency previously denied that any such documents existed. The FBI says it needs six weeks to process and release them.

Millennial Elected As Head of Austria http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8997-Millennial-Elected-As-Head-of-Austria On Sunday, Austrians elected their youngest leader, 31 year-old Sebastian Kurz. Kurz currently serves as Austria’s foreign minister. Kurz lead the nationalist People’s Party to beat the incumbent Social Democrats. The results won’t be final until absentee and the ballots that were mailed in are counted. Kurz benefited from the insurgence of migrants into Europe and drew support away from the far right Freedom Party. He promised to cut benefits for all foreigners in Austria and promised to end the European Union’s meddling in Austria’s internal affairs. Austria has absorbed one percent of Islamic migrants that poured into Europe beginning in 2015. “[T]heir presence in the country became the number one debated issue in the election.” Kurz has supported “plans to block refugee routes into Europe and supported a ban on full-face veils.” No party achieved the 40 percent needed to form a government outright. Kurz is likely to work with the Freedom Party to form a governing coalition government.

U.S. Will Leave UNESCO Over Anti-Israel Bias http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8996-U.S.-Will-Leave-UNESCO-Over-Anti-Israel-Bias The United States will leave UNESCO, the UN’s educational, scientific, and cultural body in 2018. The decision comes in light of what the White House calls anti-Israel bias in the organization. The agency accepted Palestine as a permanent member in 2011. More recently it designated the Jewish Tomb of the Patriarchs as an endangered Palestinian world heritage site. UNESCO has also disavowed Israelis sovereignty over Jerusalem. This won’t be the first time the U.S. pulls out of the organization. President Reagan withdrew from UNESCO in 1984 saying that the United States would not pay for policies that were hostile to American values. In 2002, the U.S. re-entered the UN organization. Israel supported the U.S. decision to withdraw calling it a “turning point” for UNESCO. “The organization’s absurd and shameful resolutions against Israel have consequences. Today is a new day at the UN, where there is price to pay for discrimination against Israel. The United States stands by Israel and is a true leader for change at the UN. The alliance between our two countries is stronger than ever.” The UNESCO’s director general called the U.S. decision “deeply regrettable.” The United States hopes to remain engaged with UNESCO but as a “non-member observer state.”

Iran Warns Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8995--Iran-Warns-Trump President Trump has been warned by Iranian officials not to officially designate “Iran’s hard-line Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.” Iran has threatened a “crushing” response if the president follows through on the designation. “If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Guards a terrorist group, then the Guards will consider the American army to be like Daesh all around the world particularly in the Middle East,” said Iranian General Jafari. A spokesman for the Iranian government said that the IRGC is an “anti-terrorist force.” Iran said that the IRGC aids “oppressed people across the world.” In 2016, the IRGC “captured and humiliated 10 U.S. Navy sailors after their two ships drifted into Iranian waters.” The Americans were released the following day. The Pentagon has warned that Iran is using the IRGC to infiltrate Latin America. Ever since President Trump became president, the Iranians have feared that he would use his power to label the IRGC as a terrorist organization.

The Texas senator and former candidate for president told fellow Republicans that if they don’t follow through on their campaign promises to repeal Obamacare and enact tax cuts, the party could experience a bloodbath in 2018. Republicans campaigned for seven years on repealing Obamacare. They took many symbolic votes to overturn the unpopular law. But when voters gave Republicans control of the entire government, they backed away from overturning the legislation. Steve Bannon on Brietbart News announced this week that he’s going to make sure every Republican senator up for re-election with the exception of Senator Cruz will face a primary challenge. The promise infuriated many Republican lawmakers. Cruz said, “We have Republican control of every branch of government, and we’re not delivering. If senators don’t want to see those kind of challenges, there is an easy solution to that. Let’s do what we said we would do. Let’s deliver on tax cuts and repealing Obamacare.” He promised that Republicans would have a great year in 2018 if they just follow through on their campaign promises.

Gas PipeLines Approved By Regulators http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8993--Gas-PipeLines-Approved-By-Regulators Federal regulators approved two natural gas pipelines on the East Coast on Friday. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines. The Mountain Valley Pipeline is expected to cost $3.5 billion and extend 300 miles. It has been met with severe local objections. Over the past couple of years, surveying companies have trespassed on private property and have been taken to court multiple times in a failed effort to halt the work. Activists in southwest Virginia have put up signs showing where the pipeline may go through their towns and lands. They are also worried that the pipeline will hurt the environment. Activists opposed to the pipeline argue that the terrain can’t support the pipeline. The limestone terrain is prone to caves and sinkholes. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is expected to cost $5 billon and extend 600 miles through West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. Advocates for the pipelines say that Americans will have lower energy costs and the construction will aid economic development.

Insurer Subsidies to End http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8992--Insurer-Subsidies-to-End Thursday night, President Trump announced plans to end Obamacare subsidies to insurers. The subsidies will cost the government $7 billion in 2017 and an estimated $10 billion in 2018. "As far as the subsidies are concerned, I don't want to make the insurance companies rich. They're making a fortune by getting that kind of money,” said the president. In response, the attorneys general for 18 states said they would sue the president and ask that the court force President Trump to make the next payment. A federal court has already ruled that the subsidies to insurers are illegal. The case is on appeal in Washington DC. No act of Congress authorized the subsidy payments to insurers. They were a creation of the Obama administration. Senator Schumer said that Congress is working to find a way to continue the subsidy payments in a bipartisan way. After announcing the administration would not make the next payment, President Trump invited Democratic leaders to the White House offering to negotiate a better deal.

Eliminating the Death Tax Would Grow The Economy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8991-Eliminating-the-Death-Tax-Would-Grow-The-Economy Getting rid of the death tax could create nearly 160,000 jobs according to Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform. The estate tax is a tax on everything that a person owns at the time of his death. It kicks in when the estate is valued at $5.45 million and above. Norquist went on to say that the economy would increase by nearly one percent. “The death tax is a tax on life savings . . . We know that has a history of slowing and damaging economic growth.” Norquist pointed out that America has the fourth highest death tax. “The average in Europe at least on the death tax is 15 percent and [the U.S is] at 40 [percent]. According the the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council, the death tax “destroys family-owned businesses, it sucks a vast amount of resources that could be put into productive investment, wealth creation, quality job creation as well.” According to the Council, more businesses are closing down than are starting. The Council estimates 3.4 million businesses are missing in the economy.

President Decertifies Iran’s Compliance With Nuclear Agreement http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8990-President-Decertifies-Iran’s-Compliance-With-Nuclear-Agreement On Friday, President Trump announced that he would decertify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement. The president said that Iran is “not living up to the spirit” of the agreement. He added that it is his goal to make certain Iran never develops a nuclear weapon. "We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of Iran’s nuclear breakout," said the president. The president’s actions do not pull the United States out of the agreement. Instead he gave Congress 60 days to formulate new standards that Iran will have to follow or risk severe economic sanctions. The president said that if the administration is “not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, the the agreement will be terminated.” While Israel welcomed President Trump’s speech, the country’s intelligence minister warned that war could break out given Tehran’s rhetoric. Secretary of State Tillerson said he considered putting the issue of Iran’s compliance into the hands of Congress was the best way to fix the deal.

Some members want to impose “new standards restricting [Iran’s] ballistic missile program, arms buildup,” and Congress wants to impose more inspections on sites “suspected of engaging in nuclear work.” As well, the forthcoming legislation would end “sunset clauses” that currently restrict “Iran’s advanced nuclear research and weapons buildup” but will expire in five to six years. If Iran does not agree to the new restrictions, the country would face new economic sanctions. “The days of appeasing the Mullah’s every wish and sitting back and watching as the terrorist state goes nuclear are over,” said a congressional official. Under the new proposals, Iran would be restricted from “developing, testing, and operating ballistic missile technology.” It would be stopped from “installing advanced nuclear centrifuges that can enrich uranium.” In light of Iran’s deal with Russia to construct heavy water nuclear reactors, Congress is looking to impose restrictions on their construction. Plutonium can be produced as a bi-product of uranium enrichment.

Mattis Elaborates on Freedom of Navigation Exercise http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8988-Mattis-Elaborates-on-Freedom-of-Navigation-Exercise Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that the United States did not violate China’s sovereignty. “We stay strictly in accordance with international law, so there’s no violation of anyone’s sovereignty,” said Mattis. The U.S. Navy sent the USS Chafee near islands that China has claimed as its own. The islands are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan. The Pentagon sent the Chafee into the region so as to challenge China’s “excessive maritime claims.” Mattis pointed out that the United States has been conducting freedom of navigation maneuvers for decades and that the most recent maneuvers were nothing more than benign. During the Obama administration, freedom of navigation exercises in the South China Sea were curtailed. During that time, China created 3,200 acres of new islands in that region. The Chinese are currently militarizing the islands. China has built runways, jet hangers, port facilities, and storage depots for water and fuel. During the naval exercise, China sent naval ships and fighter planes to shadow the American destroyer. China’s statement said in part, “[W]e demand the U.S. side earnestly take steps to correct its mistakes and inject positive energy into bilateral ties.”

Senator Collins Will Stay in DC Swamp http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8987-Senator-Collins-Will-Stay-in-DC-Swamp Senator Susan Collins of Maine will stay in the DC swamp and keep dividing a “divided and troubled Washington.” Collins had been considering a run for the governorship of Maine. In her announcement clarifying her political future, Collins said, “The challenges we face today are enormous – from frustrated families with stagnant wages and expensive health care to a nuclear-armed North Korea and Russian interference in the very fabric of our democracy, our elections." “Collins concluded ‘that the best way that I can contribute to these priorities is to remain a member of the United States Senate.’” She bragged about her ability to cross the aisle, “build coalitions,” and “listen to the people of [Maine] and my country.” Mitch McConnell congratulated Collins saying that “she brings conviction, smarts and leadership to every issue.” Collins is a moderate politician who has worked actively to undermine conservatives in Congress.

30 Pages of Documents Found Related to Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8986-30-Pages-of-Documents-Found-Related-to-Lynch-Clinton-Tarmac-Meeting The FBI has discovered 30 documents relating to the June 27, 2016 meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Earlier the FBI said that it had no documents related to the happenstance meeting where nothing but grandkids and golf were discussed. Judicial Watch caught wind of the documents’ existence by way of another lawsuit. The FBI says that it needs “six weeks to produce the documents.” The meeting between Lynch and Clinton occurred just as the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton was wrapping up. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said, “The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit.” Fitton went on to say, “Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s documents games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”

Unemployment Continues to Fall http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8985-Unemployment-Continues-to-Fall Despite the disruptions created by the disasters caused by the recent hurricanes the claims for unemployment benefits in the United States are the lowest they have been for almost 44 years. This is an indication that layoffs are rare and that new job creation is very strong. It is also a sign that businesses in Texas, Florida, and Louisiana are recovering from the hurricanes faster than expected. In addition, the inflation rate remains low and the stock market continues to be strong. It is hoped that these signs of a strong economy will help convince Congress to move swiftly on tax reform.

Weinstein Scandal Widens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8984-Weinstein-Scandal-Widens The fallout from the sexual harassment scandal involving Harvey Weinstein is extending into other prominent media companies. NBC News is struggling to explain its refusal to use the well documented story that was presented to it by a freelance reporter for its own network. Now, Amazon has indefinitely suspended one of its top executives, Roy Price who is the head of the entertainment division, amid allegations of sexual harassment. He is also linked to possible cover ups on behalf of Weinstein and retaliation against the young woman who initiated the original claims against the movie mogul. She claims that Amazon cancelled production of a project that she had submitted and had been approved, after she exposed Weinstein. Price was apparently responsible for the cancellation.

He absolutely denied the Vanity Fair report and made references to other inaccuracies in news reports that were supposed to be based on leaks. He suggested they might want to find other “sources.” He also pointed out to the media that there are many issues that have just been kicked down the road by previous administrations, and that places additional burdens on President Trump.

Congress Warned of EMP Attack http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8981-Congress-Warned-of-EMP-Attack In a dire warning to a congressional committee yesterday that the United States is extremely vulnerable to a nuclear EMP attack that could shut down the nation’s electrical grid for an indefinite period. They said that this would result in the death of ninety percent of Americans within a year. There would be no power, no water, no internet, no banking, no communications, and now healthcare available particularly in the large cities where there would soon be food riots and massive looting. The experts are urging the Congress to reestablish the congressional EMP commission that was studying this problem, and possible ways to strengthen the protection of the electric grid that has been allowed to deteriorate over recent years.

Hundreds of other people are listed as missing and over 50,000 people have had to evacuate their homes. More evacuations are being ordered and over 3,500 structures had been destroyed by the raging infernos. Despite the deployment of helicopters and aircraft along with thousands of firefighters the sheer size of the fires that now cover over 170,000 acres makes it very difficult to make in headway in even containing the fires. This disaster is well on its way to becoming the worst wildfire in U.S. history.

Pelosi Wants to Let Enemy Strike First http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8979-Pelosi-Wants-to-Let-Enemy-Strike-First Nancy Pelosi wants a law passed that would prohibit the President of the United States from launching a preemptive nuclear strike against an enemy. Although she denies this is aimed against President Trump that is clearly her intent. However, the implications would be far reaching and highly dangerous for the country. Essentially, Pelosi wants to prohibit the president from going after an enemy like North Korea even if there was credible evidence that the regime was going to hit the U.S. first. Pelosi would limit the President’s ability to prevent such a strike by acting preemptively. The President could only act after we were attacked, and millions of Americans are dead.

Trump Starts Dismantling Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8978-Trump-Starts-Dismantling-Obamacare After the United States Senate failed twice to approve legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare President Obama has decided to initiate action on his own. He has issued an executive order to create a situation where small businesses and other groups can form associations to negotiate better insurance contracts for their employees. A major feature of the order is that it allows such groups to negotiate with insurance companies in other states, something that in the past has been prohibited by federal regulations. Supporters of the Trump order say it will make insurance much more affordable for millions of people.

Britain Wants To Regulate Tech Companies as News Organizations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8977-Britain-Wants-To-Regulate-Tech-Companies-as-News-Organizations Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May is considering regulating Facebook and Google in the “same way as news organizations.” The change in regulation would make the companies “responsible for illegal content on their platforms.” Whatever the British government happens to consider illegal such as “terrorist content, pornography, or perhaps one day fake news — these big companies could be fined.” Just last week, it was reported that if people even view “far-right propaganda” online, offenders could face fifteen years in prison. The government did not define what “far-right propaganda” was, so the definition could be forever changing and never really defined. Home Secretary Rudd wants to regulate the way encryption is used. She did not care that she did not understand encryption saying, “I don’t need to understand how encryption works to understand how it’s helping the criminals. I will engage with the security services to find the best way to combat that.” Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other large tech companies are gearing up to confront a wave of regulation that may be coming their way.

California Wildfires http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8976-California-Wildfires As fires rage through California, the number of missing people has risen to 670. At least 21 people are known to have died. Thousands more are living in shelters. However, authorities believe that many of the missing will be found alive. Property damage estimates report at least 3,500 businesses, houses, including 11 wineries have been destroyed in California’s wine country. Across the state, firefighters were able to extinguish 43 fires in a 24 hour period. In California’s wine counties, firefighters have been helped with substantially slower winds than they experienced on Monday. Any wine grapes that survive the fires and are harvested will affect the quality of the wine. The chemicals in the smoke cause the wine “to have an ashtray taste.” After the 2008 fires, wineries sold off their grapes “at big discounts to the bulk market.” In addition to the huge financial hit to the California wine industry, the French wine industry is “expecting to have the worst wine grape harvest since 1945.” A mild March and heavy frost in April damaged the French wine industry.

DOJ Warns Cities To Comply Or Lose Funding http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8975-DOJ-Warns-Cities-To-Comply-Or-Lose-Funding The Department of Justice warned five sanctuary jurisdictions this week to prove they are “complying with federal law or else risk losing millions of dollars in federal grants.” Philadelphia, New York City, New Orleans, Chicago and surrounding Cook County, Illinois have until October 27 to demonstrate their compliance. Philadelphia shot back saying the Department of Justice “won’t be satisfied unless we actively join them in scaring immigrants out of our communities. We are not going to do that.” Philadelphia has policies that forbid “local officials from giving immigration authorities notice that a person is being released from custody” unless a felony conviction is involved. New York City’s mayor said that if federal funds are cut off, it will sue the Trump administration. New Orleans Mayor Landrieu declared that his city’s police department would “not be the federal government’s deportation force.” The Department of Justice blames “lax immigration enforcement for fostering a culture of lawlessness . . . “ Earlier in October, California became a sanctuary state. In response, the director of Immigration, Customs, and Enforcement promised to send in more federal agents into communities to arrest illegal immigrants.

House Passes Disaster Relief Package http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8974-House-Passes-Disaster-Relief-Package Members of the House of Representatives passed a disaster relief bill that provides money to Puerto Rico as well as to other states dealing with fires and hurricane cleanup. Lawmakers voted to spend $36.5 billion for food aid, flood insurance, and disaster relief. The current total of disaster relief spending since September is almost $42 billion. Some Republicans want Congress to offset the spending with cuts in other areas of the federal budget. Representative Mark Walker argued “It is only a matter of time before the U.S. faces the next catastrophe. But for some reason, the government does not budget with this in mind.” Other Republicans told their colleagues that reforms to the government’s flood insurance program need to be made. Representative David Schweikert said, “Emergency is emergency, but there are programs we’re going to have to deal [with], bite the bullet, and I think flood insurance is one of them, where you also have a moral hazard in its current design.” Puerto Rico will have to rebuild many of its roads and bridges after they were destroyed by Hurricane Maria.

The change would disallow for a first strike. Nuclear weapons could only be used if the United States is attacked first. At a press conference Thursday, Pelosi characterized the “1946 law authorizing the president to launch pre-emptive nuclear strikes as ‘ancient.’” Pelosi offered a couple of different ideas on how to change the law. Under one proposal there would be more Cabinet officials who would advise the president before an attack. Another would be a declaration the the United States would never be the first party to use nuclear weapons. Pelosi denied that her suggestions are designed to reign in President Trump. Instead she indicated that her ideas were to deal with the reality of today’s world. Since becoming president, Trump has been outspoken in his rhetoric towards North Korea and Iran. He may decertify the Iran nuclear agreement because he is convinced that Iran is not living up to the spirit of the agreement.

Protestors were striking because of the “police brutality carried out by Spanish police officers during the vote.” Hundreds of people were injured during the voting as police tried to close polling stations. Just days after the vote, farmers put out word that they planned to “close off the border with France using their tractors.” Spanish police arrived by the hundreds to prevent the farmers from carrying out their plan. However, the farmers did not show up. Instead they “closed off the motorway and all roads heading back into the Catalonia — leaving the police officers trapped.” Police were unable to “intervene during the peak of the general strike.” The initial plan was to close down the railway. But as events unfolded, the farmers chose to close the roads.

Democratic Leader Under Fire http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8971-Democratic-Leader-Under-Fire Democratic National Committee Chairman, Tom Perez, is coming under fire from some fellow Democrats. According to Democratic activists, Perez is not doing enough to create enthusiasm in the party and his fundraising efforts are ineffective. July was the DNC’ worst fundraising month since 2007. “A lot of us feel like there’s nothing exciting, nothing invigorating coming from that building and particularly from Tom Perez,” said a Democratic fundraiser. According to the fundraiser, Perez is doing little if anything to “reach out to all the big fundraisers.” Recently Perez announced that he’d be returning to some teaching duties at Brown University. A strategist for the DNC said, “Being DNC chair is a full time job. There isn’t time for side gigs.” According to Representative Luis Gutiérrez, Perez was an “establishment pick.” “Part of the problem is that when you’re a parachutist into the party [and] you didn’t work yourself up the party chain and in the trenches, I think you’re going to have problems, especially with [what] is still a very divisive and contested match,” said Gutiérrez.

The legislation comes in response to the Republican governor’s recent signing of legislation “that would allow Medicaid and state health-care plans to cover abortions.” Republican Senator Dan McConchie said, “This controversial and culturally divisive act should not be one that taxpayers should be forced to fund.” “Likewise, there is no good reason for taxpayers to be on the hook for someone else’s personal decision.” When the Republican governor signed the legislation, he defended his decision saying, “I believe that a woman living with limited financial means should not be put in the position where she has to choose something different than a woman of higher income would be able to choose.” The response by conservative Republican legislators highlights the sharp divide between their position and that of the governor’s. Governor Rauner is likely to face a strong Republican primary challenge in 2018 when he seeks a second term.

The chief of staff took issue with the many fake news stories that are circulating about the president and White House politics. Kelly said that his job is not to ‘control’ the president. Instead, he characterized his job as controlling the information flow to the president. "It's funny, I read in the paper—you all know, you write it—that I have been a failure at controlling the president or a failure at controlling his tweeting and all that. I was not brought to this job to control anything but the flow of information to our president so that he can make the best decisions." He went on to say that President Trump is “a decisive guy” and “very thoughtful.” Kelly rebuked the press saying that it is “‘astounding’ how much the press misreport about the White House.” He stressed the his effectiveness as chief of staff should not be measured by what the press thinks he should or should not be doing. “I can guarantee to you that he is now presented with option, well thought out options.”

Democrats have worked to derail the recall effort saying that the effort misled voters into thinking that “it was a push to repeal the gas tax.” Democrats pushed to allow voters to rescind their signatures on the recall-petition. Carl DeMaio, a conservative talk radio host is leading the recall effort. "The Democrats are full of manure . . .,” DeMaio said. “They are desperate to prevent the voters from having their constitutional right to a recall election.” "They don’t want the citizens to be able to fire their politicians so they continue to change the rules, to send in bullies and frivolous lawsuits.” Three California counties have until October 24 to verify the signatures of those voters who have requested that their signatures be rescinded from the recall petition. Republicans consider Newman vulnerable because he won his election last November by a razor-thin margin. His election handed Democrats a super-majority in the California Senate. Democrats do not need Republican support to push through their agenda.

Citizens enjoy some of the most liberal gun rights in all of Europe. Zeman said that his wife carries a pistol. Both Switzerland and the Czech Republic have a a “lower homicide rate than the United Kingdom, which is experiencing a surge in gun violence despite incredibly heavy restrictions on gun ownership . . . “ Elsewhere in Europe in spite of heavy gun control, “Islamists have been able to acquire firearms for use in a number of terrorist atrocities.” The Czech President was a veteran of the Prague Spring uprising that stood against the communist regime in 1968.

This comes as Kim Jong Un is expected to soon launch another test of an intercontinental ballistic missile that may be capable of reaching the United States. The projected presence of the Roosevelt will not be a deterrent to such a test, but combined with increased economic pressure will definitely get the communist dictator’s attention.

The levels of Ruthenium 106 are not life threatening at this point, but scientists have thus far been unable to pinpoint their origin. Speculation is that the isotopes may be coming from Russia which may be an indication of another nuclear accident. The Russians originally attempted to cover up the major incident in Chernobyl in 1986 that caused the whole area in Ukraine to be evacuated and it is still uninhabitable. There are no indications that history is repeating itself, but there is still considerable concern in Europe.

He basically left the entire matter to the Senate Republicans to work out. They obviously failed, so when it comes to the push for tax reform, and tax reduction the President is using the “bully pulpit” and taking his case directly to the American people.

He started in Pennsylvania with an audience made up of friendly voters, many of them involved in the trucking industry that will benefit from the cuts in taxes for businesses and the abolition of the estate tax. He carefully laid out the meat of the proposals and that approach may ultimately make the difference.

A few days ago the New York Times broke the story of sexual allegations against the Hollywood movie mogul and big time contributor to the Democrat party. Then it was reported by others that this had been known to the Times executives for many years.

Now a freelance reporter for NBC Ronan Farrow who wrote the story published in the New Yorker Magazine says he first brought the story to NBC News that refused to run it. NBC does not deny this, but says they did not think the story was ready for prime time. That is clearly not what the editors of the New Yorker magazine thought.

Trump Lashes Out at NBC News http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8960-Trump-Lashes-Out-at-NBC-News In the latest flap between President Donald Trump and the mainstream media the president has accused NBC News of “fake news”. This stems from an NBC claim that during a meeting with the country’s top military leaders Trump called for a “tenfold” increase in America’s nuclear arsenal. The report was based on the usual unnamed sources, and was flatly denied by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis who was present for the entire meeting.

The president also wondered in the tweet if NBCs broadcast license could be revoked, but did not actually threaten to do that. In any case he does not have the power and networks do not have to be licensed.

Wildfires Continue to Spread in California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8959-Wildfires-Continue-to-Spread-in-California The death toll continues to climb in California as the number of out of control wildfires also continues to grow. There are at least 22 fires now being faced by firefighters who are already spread too thin. Winds have picked back up and over 500 people are reported missing and the property damage is tremendous. In addition, there is no rain in the forecast for at least a week.

Thousands of people have been evacuated and because the fires are still out of control they will not be able to return to their homes anytime soon, or to even find out if they have homes left.

Conservatives Call Mitch a Failed Leader http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8958-Conservatives-Call-Mitch-a-Failed-Leader Several conservative organizations called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and several others in Senate leadership to resign. Republican leaders inability to pass the president’s agenda was cited as the reason. Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party patriots cited a list of Republican offenses. “They promised to end the Obama area practice of spending more than the government takes in, so we can balance the budget and pay down our $20 trillion national debt.” “They promised to nominate and confirm Constitutionalists to the federal bench.” “They promised to secure our borders, protect American jobs, and end the scourge of illegal immigration.” “And in their most famous campaign promise of all, they promised to repeal ObamaCare, and I quote, ‘root and branch.’” Martin went on to say that the failures represent a “failure of leadership.” “Mitch McConnell has had his chance. he has failed to deliver. It is time for him to go.” The coalition of conservative activists issued a letter to the Senate leadership saying, “it is time for you and your leadership team to step aside for new leadership that is committed to the promises made to the American people. America is too good for you to lead it.”

Democrat House Member Introduces Impeachment Resolution http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8957-Democrat-House-Member-Introduces-Impeachment-Resolution Democrat Representative Al Green addressed the floor of the House on Wednesday. He introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump. "I rise today on behalf of the many who have concluded that enough is enough.” Representative Green began his rhetorical indictment of the president saying, "Resolved that Donald J. Trump, president of the United States of America, has undermined the integrity of his office with impunity and has brought disrepute on the presidency … has betrayed his trust as president to the manifest injury of the American people and is unfit to be president, and is impeached pursuant to Article II, Section IV, of the Constitution of the United States of America," he said. For 23 minutes, Representative Green went on to complain that the president was guilty of all manner of terrible things including “inciting white supremacy, sexism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, race-baiting, and racism while in office.” Because Representative Green brought the articles under a Point of Privilege of the House, members had to take action on the legislation. The presiding officer of the House offered to consider the resolution within the hour, however Representative Green to did show up, “allowing the window for considering the vote to pass for the time being.”

Sentencing Reform Legislation Introduced http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8956-Sentencing-Reform-Legislation-Introduced Democratic and Republican Senators are introducing sentencing reform legislation. Three of the bills address changes to federal sentencing guidelines. Enhancement penalties for certain drug offenders would be reduced, firearm offense mandatory minimum would be clarified, the “three strikes and you’re out” mandatory life imprisonment provision would be struck from the law. Judges would also be given more latitude in sentencing for most offenses so that they would not always be bound to impose mandatory minimums. Programs to reduce recidivism would be established. 50 percent of federal offenders end up back in prison within eight years. The legislation would “‘report and inventory . . . all federal criminal offenses,’ a list that would likely be hundreds of thousands of items long.” The Mens Rea Reform Act would restore the tradition of intent to crimes. A person can violate any one of hundreds of thousands of criminal statues without intending to and still end up being convicted of a federal crime and ending up in prison.

Deputy Attorney General Calls For “Responsible Encryption” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8955-Deputy-Attorney-General-Calls-For-“Responsible-Encryption” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein called for “responsible encryption.” According to the Deputy AG, the government should not be hindered by such antiquities such as the Fourth Amendment. He called the strong encryption built into many devices as “one of our greatest challenges.” "Warrant-proof encryption defeats the constitutional balance by elevating privacy above public safety,” Rosenstein told midshipmen at the Naval Academy. "Encrypted communications that cannot be intercepted and locked devices that cannot be opened are law-free zones that permit criminals and terrorists to operate without detection by police and without accountability by judges and juries.” Angelo Codevilla of the Claremont Institute responded saying, “The U.S. government is asking for access to our doors, but is incapable of guarding those doors. We Americans have come to trust encryption for the same reason we have had to fall back on our own guns for our own protection.” Kurt Opsahl of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said that the courts have found code to be speech an “that the First Amendment protects the distribution of strong encryption.”

Former Obama Advisor Pushes Gun Control http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8954-Former-Obama-Advisor-Pushes-Gun-Control Dan Pfeiffer, a former advisor to President Obama, called for an Australian-style gun confiscation program. Pfeiffer called on Democrats to stop “insincere pandering” to gun owners. "We are nibbling around the edges instead of proposing bold, meaningful solutions.” Pfeiffer proposed a gun registry, “smart-gun technology,” and a buy back program. "Democratic politicians have been brainwashed by political hacks like me to begin all of their statements about guns by declaring support for the Second Amendment and a deep affinity for the cultures of hunters and sportsmen.” Pfeiffer did not call on Democrats to repeal the Second Amendment. But rather argue that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual’s right to own a gun. "The Second Amendment is in many ways an anachronism, framed before the age of drones and cruise missiles, when a well-armed civilian militia have actually been capable of turning back a foreign invasion. Times change. This is not Red Dawn. You are not Patrick Swayze. Chill out." He concluded saying that Democrats have failed because they have not made “robust, courageous, and honest arguments to the country.”

Bannon Promises to Primary Republican Incumbents http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8953-Bannon-Promises-to-Primary-Republican-Incumbents Senate Republicans up for re-election in 2018 will face primary challenges. A Steve Bannon associated group, The Great America Alliance, announced that it will back anti-establishment candidates in West Virginia, Montana, and Tennessee. One criteria for Bannon’s support is that they will not back Mitch McConnell for Senate Majority Leader. Other things that candidates are being asked to support is the end of the legislative filibuster and to support the president’s trade and immigration policies. Bannon announced that he plans to support primary challengers in every Republican Senate race except for Ted Cruz. More endorsements are expected in the coming weeks. Bannon told Fox’s Sean Hannity, “They have to understand something — just voting is not good enough. You have to have a sense of urgency. Nobody’s safe. We’re coming after all of them. And we’re going to win.” The Republican establishment is believes the Bannon effect is overstated. In Alabama, Bannon came in late when it appeared to be a foregone conclusion that Judge Roy Moore was going to win. “There was no ground game, no infrastructure, just the press ready to give [Bannon] more credit than he deserved.”

President to Sign Executive Order on Healthcare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8952-President-to-Sign-Executive-Order-on-Healthcare President Trump plans to sign an executive order on Thursday that will affect healthcare. The order will allow small businesses to come together “to buy health insurance, through what are known as association health plans . . . “ The order will also end “short-term health insurance plans” that the Obama administration had limited. The president’s order will instruct the Department of Labor to update “rules to allow small employers to create association health plans.” Small businesses in the same state, line of business, or in the same trade association will be able to come together and buy health insurance. Under the order, people will be able to pay for their healthcare premiums with pre-tax dollars from their health savings accounts. The order falls short though. While small businesses will be able to cooperate, the order makes no mention of individuals being able to join association healthcare plans. However the short-term health insurance market could do damage to the individual Obamacare market. Democrats fear “that healthier people will migrate to cheaper, short-term plans, leaving only sicker people in Obamacare plans and driving up premiums.”

Spain Asks for Clarification on Independence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8951-Spain-Asks-for-Clarification-on-Independence Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy asked the president of Spains Catalan region to clarify whether or not he had actually declared independence from the rest of Spain. The Catalan president appeared to have declared independence from Spain and then suspended it and called for further dialogue with Spain’s government. Rajoy said that Catalonia’s leader had created “deliberate confusion” with his comments and actions on Tuesday. Not waiting for a response, Rajoy invoked Article 155 of Spain’s Constitution. The article “would allow Madrid to suspend Catalan lawmakers and take charge of the region’s autonomous administration.” “It is urgent to put an end to the situation that Catalonia is living. The government wants to offer certainties to Spaniards and Catalans,” said Rajoy. While Rajoy is under pressure to stop the Catalan secession, Rajoy has a history of caution and may let the Catalan leader dig his own hole. “[S]trong reprisals against the region’s leader . . . could galvanized the independence movement.”

North Korea Says Trump Has Lit “The Wick of War” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8950-North-Korea-Says-Trump-Has-Lit-“The-Wick-of-War” North Korea’s foreign minister said “With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us.” “We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words.” On Saturday, President Trump tweeted, “Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!” The United States flew two bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday, simulating an “air-to-ground missile-firing drill with two South Korean F-15K fighters over the East Sea.” The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called the rise in tensions “unacceptable.” Secretary of Defense Mattis said President Trump is committed to finding a diplomatic solution, but in the event of failure, the U.S. Army should “stand ready” for war. "Now what does the future hold? Neither you nor I can say, so there is one thing the US Army can do. "And that is you have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our President can employ if needed."

The USS Theodore Roosevelt left San Diego last week and is steaming towards the Korean Peninsula. The ship will take a few weeks to cross the Pacific. The aircraft carrier has 7,500 Marines and sailors on board. Admiral Steve Koehler called the service members “ready as a war fighting force.” The USS Theodore Roosevelt will join the USS Ronald Reagan. The Reagan is conducting joint exercises with the Japanese military near Okinawa. The Reagan will steam towards the Korean Peninsula later in October and take part in joint exercises with the South Korean military. Six U.S. planes, including two bombers, flew over the Korean Peninsula Tuesday in a show of force. The Trump administration has speculated that military action may be the only way to resolve the North Korean missile crisis.

Congress’ Personal Drug Provider http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8948-Congress’-Personal-Drug-Provider Grubb’s Pharmacy is Washington D.C’s oldest pharmacy. It’s roots go all the way back to 1867. For over a century it has supplied the drug needs of the ruling class on Capitol Hill. Mike Kim, the owner of the pharmacy, has gotten to know the most intimate details of members of Congress. “At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country. It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’” At its busiest, the pharmacy may drop off as many as 100 prescriptions a day to members of Congress. According to Kim, members of Congress do not get any discounts, but they might get to jump to the head of the line. For the most part, members of Congress are just like any other customer In a follow up interview, Kim made it clear “patient privacy is a very serious matter that I am committed to upholding.” He did not identify any members of Congress, the prescriptions they are taking, or the medical conditions that any of them are facing.

Venezuela’s Inflation Rate to Become the Highest in the World http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8947-Venezuela’s-Inflation-Rate-to-Become-the-Highest-in-the-World The brutal dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela continues to destroy the economy of what was once one the most prosperous countries in the western hemisphere. People are literally starving to death, and anyone who opposes the government is arrested or simply disappears.

Now, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is estimating that inflation in the country will rise to an incredible 2,349.3 percent in 2018. This will be the highest rate in the world and will be devastating to a population in a country where consumer goods are scarce to begin with. Very few people will be able to afford the few products that are available so starvation and deprivation will continue and worsen for those people who are not members of the ruling party.

Trump Wins Victory in SCOTUS http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8946-Trump-Wins-Victory-in-SCOTUS In a major victory for the Trump Administration the U.S. Supreme Court has dismissed the lawsuit challenging the President’s travel ban. The Department of Justice asked the court to dismiss the suit on the grounds that the suit was moot since the President had made significant changes to the ban including adding several non-Muslim countries.

The justices agreed and their dismissal means that plaintiffs will have to file a new lawsuit that will have to go through the court system, and in all likelihood will not be successful since the president has the constitutional right to take such action.

The bombers flew from the U.S. base in Guam and conducted air to ground missile firing drills. They then flew across the Korean peninsula from the East Sea to the Yellow Sea to conduct more drills. This was all reported by the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The message to Kim Jong Un and his government is clear; the United States is perfectly capable of launching massive air strikes against the regime and will not hesitate to do so if provoked.

This seems to confirm the growing concern among the intelligence community that North Korea has developed the capability to attack the U.S. infrastructure.

What makes this even more worrisome is the threat of Kim Jong Un will use a nuclear weapon in an Electro Magnetic Pulse attack on the electrical grids in the United States. If such an attack was successful the majority of the U.S. infrastructure would be destroyed for years and millions would die.

Michael Wilbon, co-host of a show called “Pardon the Interruption” claimed that Jerry Jones is essentially running a plantation and treating his players like slaves.

The comment immediately raised many eyebrows of individuals who wondered how people who are played millions of dollars per year to play football for the Dallas Cowboys could be compared to slaves. Jerry Jones has a business that pays these players to play football, not use the team as a forum for their personal political beliefs.

Over a hundred and fifty people are still listed as missing as the fourteen fires continue to be out of control. Over 2,000 structures have been burned to the ground, and the sheer size of the area affected has firefighters stretched very thin.

On Tuesday the firefighters got a slight break when the winds died down, but they are expected to pick up again on Wednesday. This places a burden on the first responders who are fighting fires that in some cases are covering 20,000 to 25,000 acres each.

Their fan base is angry and reacting by refusing to buy tickets for games, boycotting NFL games on television, and boycotting NFL products and sponsors.

Finally, the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has sent a letter to all of the teams in the league telling them that everyone should stand for the anthem before a game.

Illinois Sinking in Debt http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8939--Illinois-Sinking-in-Debt The comptroller of Illinois is juggling billions of dollars in unpaid bills. In the last three months billions of dollars in more bills have been sent to the comptroller’s office for payment. In some cases agencies were waiting until a budget resolution was finalized before sending in their bills. For instance, the Department of Corrections was withholding $471 million in unpaid bills. The governor vetoed legislation that would have required state agencies to report monthly their unsubmitted bills. The state legislature plans to vote to override the veto. The governor vetoed the bill because the state cannot tally its unsubmitted bills in a cost effective way. Many of the state’s bills are over 90 days old and “face a 1 percent-per-month late-payment fee. The comptroller’s office estimates the state will pay $900 million in late fees on the existing debt. The state comptroller’s office and the governor’s office have argued over the deficit and the backlog of bills When adding in the state’s pension obligations, Illinois has $200 billion in total liabilities.

California Democrats Look For Primary Challenger http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8938-California-Democrats-Look-For-Primary-Challenger California Representative Ro Khanna is urging Democrats to primary Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein announced on Monday that she would seek a fifth term in the Senate. Khanna recognized Feinstein’s “lifetime of public service,” but indicated that she is not sufficiently progressive on issues of privacy and single payer healthcare. Neither has “She . . . been a strong advocate on privacy, she hasn’t been strong on civil liberties, she hasn’t been strong in terms of standing up to our foreign policy interventions around the world.” The congressman has urged Representative Barbara Lee to run as well as former Labor Secretary Robert Reich to run. At 84, Feinstein is the longest serving Democrat in the Senate. In a recent poll, less than half of registered voters thought Feinstein should run for a fifth term. Feinstein said, “I’m ready for a good fight. I’ve got things to fight for. I’m in a position where I can be effective, and hopefully, that means something to California.”

Twitter Backs Down On Ad Ban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8937-Twitter-Backs-Down-On-Ad-Ban Twitter backed down on its opposition to Representative Marsh Blackburn’s video advertisement which celebrated the stopping of Planned Parenthood from selling fetal body parts. Twitter issued a statement saying in party, “After further review, we have made the decision to allow the content in question from Rep. Blackburn’s campaign ad to be promoted on our ads platform.” “While we initially determined that a small portion of the video used potentially inflammatory language, after reconsidering the ad in the context of the entire message, we believe that there is room to refine our policies around these issues.” Twitter objected to the phrase “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” The campaign was told that it would have to remove the offending phrase if it wanted to promote the video as an ad. Blackburn’s campaign said that it was glad that Twitter had reconsidered its ban and said, “It’s a real shame that this censorship happened in the first place.” Twitter has no problem accepting ads from Planned Parenthood, a company that profits from the dismemberment of unborn children.

British MP Urges Germany To Settle Polish Repparations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8936-British-MP-Urges-Germany-To-Settle-Polish-Repparations A member of the British Parliament came out in support of Germany paying reparations to Poland for the destruction Germany caused during World War II. Daniel Kawczynski issued a letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He wrote, “Germany rightly refers to our obligations to the EU financially as we exit the structure, and yet conveniently ignored their own much clearer obligations to Poland for the destruction and misery they caused.” “Germany has to be held to account as she is dictating to others whilst refusing to take responsibility herself.” Poland agreed to waive the right to reparations in 1953 while it was occupied by the Soviet Union. Germany believes the agreement is binding. Poland believes the agreement was invalid because the communist government was not a “just and sovereign ruler of the Polish people.” Poland has fought all efforts to have Islamic immigrants be forcibly resettled in its country. Germany and the EU have “increasingly sought to intervene in Polish affairs.” The reparations issue has been resurrected in light of Germany’s interference.

Lowering the Tension in Catalan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8935-Lowering-the-Tension-in-Catalan The president of Spain’s Catalan region took a different tactic on Tuesday. He “called on parliament to suspend the effects of the results of the October 1st referendum to allow for ‘mediation and dialogue’ with the Spanish national government.” By asking for dialogue, the president of Catalan brings down the level of animosity and tension. “We are all responsible for this. We need [to] de-escalate the situation, not fee it any longer. I want to address everyone about the issue.” The president emphasized that he has a “mandate for independence” that he’s chosen to set aside for the moment. Spain’s Prime Minister Rajoy has threatened to “suspend the region’s autonomy” as well as kill the Catalan president. During the time of Franco, Catalan was stripped of its autonomy and the Spanish government tried to “stamp out their language.” Franco’s government also tried to settle “hundreds of thousands of outsiders in the region to try and dilute its sense of national identity.” In 2014 Catalans approved a referendum “establishing an independent republic.” Spain, backed by the EU, refused to recognize the results.

Officer Fired For Arresting Nurse http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8934-Officer-Fired-For-Arresting-Nurse Police Detective Jeff Payne was fired on Tuesday. He was caught on video dragging a nurse out of the hospital for not letting him take a blood draw “from an unconscious patient.” The nurse was complying with the rules that the hospital and the police department had agreed to ahead of time. Detective Payne did not have a warrant, the consent of the patient, and had not arrested the patient. Even though the officer could have gotten a warrant he chose to arrest the nurse. He dragged her out of the hospital and put her in a police vehicle. After the incident, the hospital banned law enforcement agents from dealing directly with nurses. A few weeks later, Payne was fired from his second job as a paramedic because he’d threatened to bring every homeless person he could find to the University of Utah Medical Center as revenge for the bad publicity he’d received. After weeks of investigation, police chief Mike Brown fired Detective Payne.

Senate Proceeding At Snail’s Pace http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8933-Senate-Proceeding-At-Snail’s-Pace The Senate is progressing at a snail’s pace in getting President Trump’s nominees to the federal judiciary confirmed. Currently there are 149 vacancies. The president has “named 50 judicial nominees since taking office. . . “ The Senate has confirmed a whopping seven nominees.” Senator Mitch McConnell said the Senate has never had to deal with so many “nominees at this early stage of a presidency in modern history.” Conservative think tanks have been complaining to senators about the slow pace of confirmations, “fearing the dispirited Republican Senatecaucus will forfeit an unprecedented opportunity to reshape the federal courts.” McConnell has indicated that he is interested in making some changes to the archaic system of confirmation such as doing away with blue slips. The convention allows home state senators to hold up hearings if they don’t return the slips. Currently there are nearly 12 “unfilled appellate vacancies arising from states with at least one Democratic senator.”

Obama Library To Go Paperless http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8932-Obama-Library-To-Go-Paperless The Obama Presidential Library will create an online archive of its documents instead of a “traditional paper archive.” The library won’t have to “pay fees to the National Archives and Records Administration for management of the library.” The center will have “basketball courts, a recording studio, meeting rooms, an auditorium, a children’s play garden, [and] an exhibition hall . . . “ But it will not have historical documents. Peggy Glowacki, a manuscripts librarian, is skeptical of how the library will work. “I think, in this case, it’s such a massive amount of material that it will be important to see how they are able to deliver it and make it easy to search.” The Obama library will open in 2021. It is expected to cost $500 million. The library will destroy access to Cornell Drive, a road that is “used each day by thousands of drivers.” Reaction to the architectural sketches of the center have not been kind. It’s been called “soul-crushing,” a “monstrosity,” a “concrete Rubik’s Cube ready to tumble over on its side at any moment.”

U.S. Navy Sends Destroyer Into Disputed Waters http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8931--U.S.-Navy-Sends-Destroyer-Into-Disputed-Waters The U.S. Navy sent a destroyer into the South China Sean on Tuesday to sail near the islands that are claimed by China. The action was a Freedom of Navigation exercise that challenged “excessive maritime claims” made by China. The Navy intends to continue these exercises because the American government does not recognize China’s territorial claims. “The U.S. military has a long-standing position that its operations are carried out throughout the world, including in areas claimed by allies, and that they are separate from political considerations.” While continuing to conduct the navigation exercises, the United States is also seeking help from China to contain North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. In the past, China has argued that the Navy’s actions, “harmed Chinese sovereignty and security.” It may be in China’s interest to keep North Korea in play so as to continue to irritate the United States. President Trump plans to visit several countries in Asia in November including China.

Companies Panic Because Millennials Don’t Understand Their Products http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8930-Companies-Panic-Because-Millennials-Don’t-Understand-Their-Products Home Depot executives are in a panic. It seems that millennials have no idea how to use the products that the company sells. Home Depot has spent millions of dollars creating video tutorials and in store classes on how to do “everything from using a tape measure to mopping a floor and hammering a nail.” And lest anyone think these videos are “too condescending” towards “our pampered millennials” these videos are “based on high-frequency online search queries.” This is not just a home improvement industry issue. Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has found it necessary to create video instructions on how very basic gardening tips such as “making sure sunlight can reach plants.” “These are simple things we wouldn’t have really thought to do or needed to do 15 to 20 years ago. But this is a group who may not have grown up putting their hands in the dirt growing their vegetable garden in mom and dad’s backyard,” said Jim King a vice president with Scotts. Millennials represent the largest demographic in America.

Investigation Into Imran Awn Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8929-Investigation-Into-Imran-Awn-Heats-Up The investigation into the former IT aide to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to turn up disturbing issues. Representative Scott Perry said that Imran Awan made “massive” data transfers off of government computers. The Republican representative called Awan’s actions “a substantial security threat.” Investigators had been watching IT aides for House Democrats for months. There were concerns of double-billing, equipment theft, and access to important computer systems. Investigators found 5,700 logins to one computer server. 5,400 of which appear to be unauthorized. Currently Awan is charged with conspiracy to “obtain home equity lines of credit . . . by giving false information about two properties — and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.” Representative Wassermann Schultz says that the focus on Awan is meant to distract from the Russian meddling.

Timeline Changes in Vegas Shooting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8928-Timeline-Changes-in-Vegas-Shooting The timeline presented by the las Vegas authorities of the shooting by Stephen Paddock that resulted in 58 deaths and hundreds of injuries has suddenly changed dramatically. A Mandalay Bay security guard who was shot and wounded while in the hallway outside the shooters room was originally reported to have occurred during the time that he was firing on the crowd of concert goers. Now it is being reported that Jesus Campos was actually shot prior to the rampage starting. This raises serious questions about whether he reported the incident to hotel security and whether it was then reported to police who were trying to determine where the gunfire was coming from.

Iran Makes Direct Threats Against U.S. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8927-Iran-Makes-Direct-Threats-Against-U.S.- The radical Islamic dictatorship in Iran is directly threatening retaliation against the United States if President Trump declares its elite Revolutionary Guards to be a terrorist organization. Iran has promised a “crushing response” against the U.S. if that happens. Many of the groups affiliated with the guard have already been designated as terrorist groups and Iran is widely recognized as the most prominent state sponsor of terrorism.

Trump is also expected to decertify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear treaty signed illegally by President Obama without submitting to be ratified by the Senate as required by the Constitution.

Liberals United in Silence about Weinstein Scandal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8925-Liberals-United-in-Silence-about-Weinstein-Scandal Even after the board of directors of the company he founded fired him the elitists in the Democrat party and Hollywood remained mostly silent about the Harvey Weinstein sexual scandal, despite the overwhelming evidence that this had gone on for years. Only one notable actress raised her voice in condemnation and that was Meryl Streep. Weinstein was a powerful mogul for years in the movie industry and a heavy contributor to liberal candidates and causes. That is probably the reason there has not been a word said about this by the Obamas or Clintons. Activist Hollywood types Ben and Casey Affleck said nothing, and neither did Gwyneth Paltrow and Glenn Close. Pundits are calling this another example of liberal hypocrisy.

Now they are trying to make sure that the social media platforms are not level playing fields; at least not when it comes to conservatives and republicans. Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is running for the Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Bob Corker.

She recently posted the announcement of her campaign on Twitter and pointed out her strong pro-life credentials including her strong stance against Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies. Twitter blocked her video because they said the pro-life statements were inflammatory and might offend someone. This is a direct slap at the First Amendment.

However, the action he has recently taken has been praised by fans. He told his players and coaches that if they disrespected the flag and national anthem by kneeling they would lose their jobs.

This action caused liberal ESPN commentator Jemele Hill, who couldn’t contain herself from going on the attack, calling on people to boycott Cowboys sponsors to punish Jones for standing up for America. She had previously come under fire for calling Trump a “white supremacist.” ESPN let her get by with that, but suspended her for two weeks for this comment.

Obama Coal Regulations being Scrapped http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8922-Obama-Coal-Regulations-being-Scrapped The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Scott Pruitt has determined after a month’s long investigation ordered by President Trump that the regulations imposed on the coal industry by Obama need to go. The so called Clean Power Plan was issued by Obama without the approval of Congress which made it unconstitutional on its face.

That is why the U.S. Supreme Court put a hold on enforcement of the plan over a year ago. The whole purpose of the exercise by Obama was to fulfill his campaign promise of putting the coal industry out of business and costing thousands of American jobs, in the name of climate change. All of that is now being reversed.

Massive Wildfires Hitting California Wine Country http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8921-Massive-Wildfires-Hitting-California-Wine-Country California firefighters are battling several rapidly moving wildfires that are devastating large areas of wine country in the Napa Valley and Sonoma and Mendocino counties. The fires have already destroyed over 1,500 structures including homes and businesses, and caused several hospitals to be evacuated in the area.

High winds and temperatures are hampering efforts to control the fires and multiple deaths are already being reported. There are currently 14 separate fires being fought in eight Northern California counties. At this point it is unclear how this effects the wine production that is a staple of the area economy.

Senator Urges National Security Team to Get On Board http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8920-Senator-Urges-National-Security-Team-to-Get-On-Board Senator Tom Cotton argued on Monday that the president’s national security team needs to get on board with the plan to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal or find other work. Cotton was interviews for The Global Politico. He said that the job of Mattis and Tillerson “is now to move out and execute.” The senator praised President Trump’s foreign policy saying, “In almost every area, in his own way, with his own rhetoric, he has reasserted American leadership, and he’s willing to confront threats before they gather.” Senator Cotton said that cabinet members and senior advisors “should help [the president] achieve his objectives and run with his thinking” when the president is right. When he’s wrong, “you have a duty to try to present to him the best facts and the best thinking to help him see it in a different light.” “Maybe you can, but if he doesn’t, and he says, ‘No, I want to do it my way,’ then your job is to move out and execute. And if you feel strongly enough, then you have to resign,” Cotton said. The expectation is that President Trump will not recertify to Congress that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal. If negotiations fail, then Congress would be able to impose new sanctions on Iran.

Fires Raging In California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8919-Fires-Raging-In-California Multiple fires broke out in northern California Sunday night. Wildfires swept through California’s wine country killing at least 10 people and “destroying 1,500 homes and businesses.” Thousands of residents fled to escape the fires. “We live in the valley, where it’s concrete and strip malls and hotels and supermarkets,” said Jeff Okrepkie. “The last thing you think is a forest fire is going to come and wipe us out.” A home for the disabled had to be evacuated as fires closed in on the property. 200 patients were evacuated as fire “closed within a few dozen feet.” Fourteen fires burned “over a 200-mile region north of San Francisco from Napa in the south to Redding in the north.” At least five wineries have been destroyed and nearly 70,000 acres have burned so far. Currently there are 25 major fires burning in the state. The heavy rains in California earlier in the year “kicked off a massive spring bloom of scrub brush, grasses and wild flowers, all of which provided fuel for the fires.”

In her corresponding announcement on Facebook, Feinstein added that she wants to give “DREAMers the chance to stay in the United States.” In a recent poll, “less than half of registered California voters thought Feinstein should run for re-election.” Feinstein has come under criticism recently for not being radical enough in her opposition to President Trump. Los Angeles Mayor Garrett will be hosting a fundraiser for the senator.

Did Corker Decide Not To Run Because of FBI Investigation? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8917-Did-Corker-Decide-Not-To-Run-Because-of-FBI-Investigation? Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker will not stand for re-election in 2018. One compelling factor in his decision may be due to an FBI investigation into several business enterprises where he stood to personally profit. The FBI reportedly is investigating Senator Corker’s “dozens of lucrative stock trades over a period of several years, collectively worth tens of millions of dollars.” As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he has received non-public information about the economic issues in many countries. In a span of 3 months in 2014 he invested in 29 companies, made 92 trades that were worth $945,000. Federal investigators are looking into whether the trades were based on insider information. Corker raised suspicions in 2015 when the Wall Street Journal reported on ten years worth of contradictions and omissions in Corker’s personal financial disclosures. Corker later amended his disclosures. But they “revealed millions of dollars in previously undeclared assets.” Senator Corker’s political career is dotted with examples of using “public office for his own personal benefit.”

Republicans Claim Attempt To Repeal Obamacare Still Alive http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8916-Republicans-Claim-Attempt-To-Repeal-Obamacare-Still-Alive Republicans in the Senate are still working to repeal Obamacare according to a group of Republican senators who co-sponsored the most recent attempt to overturn Obamacare. Senator Ron Johnson said that the effort to repeal is still ‘alive and well.” “I wouldn’t say it collapsed. It’s still alive and well, but we need more time.” Senator Lindsey Graham said that Democrats have supported block grants for welfare in the past. Graham pointed out that even John Kasich talked about entitlement reform when he was chairman of the House budget committee. Kasich came out against block grants from being issued to the states “to handle their own health care spending.” But he’d previously supported something like that when he served in Congress in 1995. Senator Cassidy said that Republican’s “block grant proposal was better than the one in 1995.” Cassidy went on to say, “I have every confidence that if this comes back up again, which I think it will — that as folks become more familiar with it, folks like John Kasich will say it’s a good idea.”

Catalan To Declare Independence on Tuesday http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8915-Catalan-To-Declare-Independence-on-Tuesday The president of the Catalan region in Spain expects to declare some form of independence from Spain on Tuesday. After the vote, the president of Catalan said, “My government, in the next few days will send the results of today’s vote to the Catalan parliament, where the sovereignty of our people lies, so that it can act in accordance with the law of the referendum.” Catalans voted for independence on October 1. The election was marred by violence as Spanish government authorities beat voters in an effort to dissuade them from voting. Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy declared, ‘Spain will not be divided and the national unity will be preserved. We will do everything that legislation allows us to ensure this. We will prevent this independence from taking place.” Spain’s deputy prime minister said, “if they declare independence, there will be decisions to restore the law and democracy.” The French government said that it will not recognize and independent Catalan. The Catalan region would also not have any place within the European Union if it follows through on its decision to separate from Spain. Catalan’s economy is 20 percent of Spain’s national economy and accounts for a quarter of Spain’s exports. Taxpayers in the region also pay 21 percent of the nation’s taxes.

Pruitt spoke at a mining event and announced his decision to withdraw from the Clean Power Plan (CPP). The CPP was finalized in 2015. It’s goal was to “cut carbon dioxide emissions from power plants 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.” The CPP was designed to meet the goals of the Paris climate accord. But the rule never was implemented because the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay in 2016. The government hopes to save $33 billion by not repealing the rule. The Obama administration low balled the cost of the CPP saying that it would cost $8.4 billion and deliver benefits “ranging from $14 to #34 billion by 2030.” Currently there are no plans by the EPA to replace the Clean Power Plan.

During the show she said, “This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor.” Another allegation is that a government official “was hoarding supplies for residents ‘who had voted for that person.’” Currently the U.S. military is in charge of distributing relief and supplies to residents on the island. Rodriguez made it clear, “This is not the time to do politics … this is the time to help and to be kind to others. This is a tragedy and nobody should take advantage of the aid.”

Last week she posted a video announcing her candidacy. In the video she said that she is 100 percent pro-life and pointed out how she’d helped to stop the sale of unborn children’s body parts. Twitter declared that Blackburn’s pro-life comment was “inflammatory” and blocked the campaign announcement ad from being promoted. A representative from the company said the statement “is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.” Twitter said the ad could be reposted as a promoted ad if the “flagged statement” was removed. Blackburn instead asked her followers to share the video. She said, “Silicon Valley should not be allowed to impose their values on us. Join me in standing up to the liberal elite.” The pro-life organization Live Action reported months ago that Twitter had blocked its ads from being promoted “unless it deleted tweets critical of Planned Parenthood.”

South Korea Creates Graphite Bomb http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8911-South-Korea-Creates-Graphite-Bomb South Korea reportedly has developed a new bomb designed to take out North Korea’s entire power grid. The weapon is called a graphite bomb also known as a “blackout bomb.” These were first used by the U.S. in the 1990 Gulf War against Iraq. The weapon releases a “cloud of extremely fine, chemically treated carbon filaments over electrical components. The filaments are so fine that they act like a cloud, but cause short circuits in electrical equipment.” South Korea’s government announced that it has secured “all technologies for the development of a graphite bomb . . . “ “it is in the stage where we can build the bombs anytime,” according to a South Korean military official. The bomb was developed as a part of South Korea’s “three pillars” plan for retaliation against North Korea. The first part of the plan involves detecting and intercepting North Korean missiles. The second part involves “launching attacks against the country’s leadership.” The North Korean regime uses holidays to showcase its strength. It is expected that the government will do something on October 10 to celebrate the founding of the nation’s communist party.

The American aircraft carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan will participate as well. North Korea will be celebrating the “founding of the country’s ruling Communist Party” on Tuesday. Officials in South Korea and the Pentagon believe that North Korea could launch another round of missiles as early as Tuesday to mark the celebration. The USS Ronald Reagan has been in Korean waters since September after North Korea fired missiles over Japan. On Monday, Secretary of Defense Mattis said that the U.S. is working through diplomacy and economic pressure to encourage North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons program. He said that soldiers must be ready to fight if negotiations fail.

Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein is big Democrat Donor http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8909-Movie-Mogul-Harvey-Weinstein-is-big-Democrat-Donor Prominent movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has had to resign after numerous stories emerged of his sexual harassment of women over many years. The evidence is overwhelming of the accuracy of these claims. However, it is now turning out that the New York Times was aware of many of these accusations as long ago as 2004 and killed the story apparently because Weinstein was a heavy contributor to the Democrat party and its candidates.

The protection continues to some extent since Saturday Night Live had a joke prepared on Weinstein after the story broke but killed it, because they said it was a “New York thing”. In other words Weinstein has been protected for years by the liberal news media, the Democrats, and the Hollywood elite.

This is to be done today, the date of the federal holiday dedicated to him. Police departments in cities around the country like New York City are dispatching extra officers to protect the monuments.

This type of activity appears to be typical of ANTIFA.

Fast Moving Tropical Storm Nate Heads Northeast http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8907-Fast-Moving-Tropical-Storm-Nate-Heads-Northeast After coming ashore on the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf coast as a category 2 hurricane Nate moved swiftly north and then northeast. The storm in the fourth to hit the U.S. this season and was not as strong as the previous three that devastated Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. However, Nate did do some wind and flood damage including knocking out power to at least 100,000 people in Mississippi.

Fortunately, the storm is moving rapidly and lost power and will not be producing the torrential rains its slow moving predecessors did. Hurricane season officially ends on November 1st.

ISIS May be Falling Apart http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8906-ISIS-May-be-Falling-Apart- The vicious ISIs fighters who are so willing to slaughter unarmed civilians for the Islamic cause are suddenly turning out not to so willing to be martyrs. Many seem to be unwilling to “fight to the death” which is part of their vow when they enlist in the “invincible” army of Islam. However, is recent weeks they have been surrendering en masse to the Iraqis, Syrian, and even Kurdish soldiers who with the support of U.S. and other coalition troops have taken one stronghold after another. After the fall of the ISIS held city of Mosul the tide turned in other locations like Tal Afar fell in only nine days and 500 ISIS fighters surrendered. Following that defeat the major location in Hawija was taken in fifteen days and 1,000 ISIS fighters surrendered rather meekly.

Hepatitis A reaching epidemic proportions in California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8905-Hepatitis-A-reaching-epidemic-proportions-in-California What started as just a few isolated cases of the liver disease hepatitis A in the homeless community in San Diego has now spread to other homeless areas as far north as Sacramento. Almost 600 cases have been reported and there have been seventeen deaths. The disease can be highly contagious, particularly among people who don’t have access to adequate sanitation.

This has become a major problem in San Diego where many homeless were displaced away from the major tourist area near the baseball park where the July major league All-star game was held. California has 21 percent of the entire homeless population in the United States, primarily because liberals in the state prohibit local authorities from doing anything significant about homelessness.

Kim Jong Un Praises Nuclear Program http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8904-Kim-Jong-Un-Praises-Nuclear-Program According to brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un the country’s nuclear program is moving swiftly and is providing a deterrent against the United States efforts to destroy the sovereignty of his nation. This comes amid reports that the North is preparing to test a ballistic missile that can directly threaten the U.S. mainland.

Jong Un also claims that the development of the weapons program has contributed to the growth of the North Korean economy that he claims is doing fine despite the sanctions placed on the country by the United Nations. However, reports continue that many people in the country are on the brink of starvation.

Pence Walks Out on NFL http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8903-Pence-Walks-Out-on-NFL Vice President Mike Pence has had enough. He and his wife, Karen, left yesterday’s NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49rs after about 20 members of the 49ers team took a knee during the national anthem. Pence has been a Colts fan for many years, but sent out a statement that he will not attend any game where there are actions that disrespect our military, our flag, and our national anthem.

It is certainly not alone since a recent poll shows that the NFL is the least liked sport in the country. Its favorability rating has dropped 31% since August and ticket sales and TV ratings continue to plummet.

Trump in No Hurry to Move Embassy to Jerusalem http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8902-Trump-in-No-Hurry-to-Move-Embassy-to-Jerusalem President Trump does not plan to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem anytime soon. He told former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee that he will do it after he’s tried to broker a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. During the campaign, candidate Trump told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, “We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem. And we will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel.” The president said that the idea for peace that his administration is working on may not work. “Most people say it’s an impossible deal. I don’t think it is impossible, and I think it’s something that can happen.” He said that he’ll make a decision on moving the embassy after the peace agreement has had a chance to be agreed to. Moving the embassy to Israel’s capital would be an affirmation of Israel’s sovereignty in Jerusalem. Conventional wisdom is that this would hurt the chances for a peace deal.

ICE Plans Immigration Arrests http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8901-ICE-Plans-Immigration-Arrests Immigration and Customs enforcement promised to begin carrying out immigration raids in California neighborhoods and businesses in spite of the states new legislation protecting illegal aliens. “ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.” Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation last week turning California into a sanctuary state. Law enforcement won’t be able to ask about immigration status after January 1, 2018. Also, California law enforcement agents won’t be able to comply with ICE immigration detainers. ICE and Homeland Security are federal agencies and California’s laws do not prevent them from continuing to operate in California. The Department of Homeland Security said, “We will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators.” The department went on to say that California’s new immigration laws are “misguided.”

DREAM Act is Open Ended Amnesty http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8900--DREAM-Act-is-Open-Ended-Amnesty Senator Richard Durbin admitted that the Dream Act is not limited to 780,000 people in the DACA population but that it is completely open ended. The Migration Policy Institute estimates that under the Dream Act, “3.3 million illegal aliens would be eligible to obtain amnesty . . . “ Durbin said that Republicans were “exaggerating the size of the amnesty and the number of people who would later arrive via chain migration.” “So some of the speculation about the numbers is real pretty far faced, and I don’t buy the two million, three million [estimates]. I don’t know where those numbers came from.” If the beneficiaries and the subsequent people coming into the U.S. through chain migration get the right to vote, “millions of lower-skilled, government-dependent legal immigrants” would be voting in 2028 and 2032. Large business is pushing for immigration so as to maintain a pool of people who will work for low wages.

Hillary Clinton Pushes Her Book in London http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8899-Hillary-Clinton-Pushes-Her-Book-in-London Hillary Clinton is on the road promoting her new book. Currently she is in London. During an interview with The Sunday Times, she made it clear that she did not bear any fault for having lost. She blamed her loss on alleged Russian influence, the email scandal, and other factors. While in London, Mrs. Clinton chimed in on Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. She said that Brexit supporters believed a “horrible lie” and voted against “modern Britain” “believing that somehow this would be good for their small village.” Mrs. Clinton said that the vote “made no sense.” She said, “Brexit should have been a bigger alarm than it was.” She added, “It was some of the same people working for Trump, advocating for him.” Clinton singled out Nigel Farage. “He came to the U.S. to campaign for Trump and spent half of his remarks insulting me in a very personal way and talking about Trump as the alpha male, the silver-backed gorilla.” Farage mocked Mrs. Clinton’s excuse making saying, “and none of it’s her fault… in fact, she has never, ever got anything wrong in her entire life.”

Detroit Firefighter Fired Over Watermelon http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8898-Detroit-Firefighter-Fired-Over-Watermelon A Detroit firefighter began his first day of work at the fire station by bringing a welcome gift and was then fired. Second Battalion Chief Shawn McCarty said that the welcome gifts are “a tradition” at the fire house. “It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary. You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.” Robert Pattison was a probationary firefighter. He brought a “watermelon with a pink bow on top.” The act immediately offended several of the black firefighters. Some called the watermelon “racially insensitive.” 90 percent of Engine 55’s firefighters are black. Pattison said that he had no intention of offending his fellow firefighters. After an investigation, “it was determined that the best course of action was to terminate the employment of this probationary employee,” said Fire Commissioner Eric Jones.

Uber Drivers Turn Up the Heat On London Regulators http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8897-Uber-Drivers-Turn-Up-the-Heat-On-London-Regulators Last week Transport for London, the city’s regulator for taxis, denied Uber a right to operate its ride sharing business, saying that the company was not “fit and proper.” The regulator said that Uber was “flooding the car-for-hire market with incompetent and dangerous drivers.” Many of London’s Uber drivers are responding by accusing Transport for London as being racist. Many drivers for London’s black cabs are White, native-born Britons.” Uber’s London drivers are mainly “nonwhite, and many of them are immigrants.” “All these people say they’re championing the working class but what they really mean is they’re championing the white working class,” said James Farrar, a former Uber driver. Uber’s CEO was in London to meet with the Mayor of London’s office to get the license re-instated. Uber is allowed to continue operating while it appeals London for Transport’s decision. Thousands of people stand to lose their jobs if the new regulation is not overturned.

EU Prosecutes Ireland For Not Collecting Enough Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8896-EU-Prosecutes-Ireland-For-Not-Collecting-Enough-Taxes The European Union plans to sue Ireland for not acting as a tax collector for the EU. The European Commission ruled a year ago that Apple failed to pay 13 billion euros in taxes. The commission said, “Dublin hasn’t even sought a portion of the total.” “We of course understand that recovery in certain cases may be more complex than in others, and we are always ready to assist. But member states need to make sufficient progress to restore competition.” The EU says that the Apple’s deal with Ireland is “illicit” and that the company has not paid much in corporate tax in more than a decade. Ireland’s Finance Minister Michael Noonan responded saying, “I disagree profoundly with the Commission’s decision.” He went on to say that Ireland will “defend the integrity of our tax system.” Apple is appealing the Commission’s tax assessment. The EU is also expected to issue a levy against Amazon for underpayment of taxes. Amazon has a tax arrangement with Luxembourg.

Senator Says No Law Would Have Stopped Las Vegas Shooting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8895-Senator-Says-No-Law-Would-Have-Stopped-Las-Vegas-Shooting Senator Diane Feinstein told Face the Nation that there was no law that could have stopped the Las Vegas shooter. The senator said, “No, he passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions.” Senator Feinstein is “one of the leading gun control advocates in Congress.” She is pushing legislation that would “ban the sale of bump stocks.” The bump stock modifies a rifle to allow the user to “increase a weapon’s rate of fire.” Feinstein said that there is some Republican interest in her legislation but none have co-sponsored the bill. Under the Obama administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms decided not to regulate bump stocks explaining, that the stocks “are not properly firearms, placing them beyond the purview of federal scrutiny.” The Las Vegas shooter is responsible for killing 60 people at a country music concert on September 30. Senator Feinstein pointed out that the shooter did not suffer from mental illness and had no criminal record.

In a statement after releasing his letter, the president said, “These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the states of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.”

The vice president tweeted, “I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem." At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us. However, Democrats proceeded to pounce on the event and tweeted, Don’t let these guys tell you they are fiscal conservatives This was a multi million dollar political stunt paid for by taxpayers.” Democrats may have a point. It’s well known that players have been kneeling for the anthem. Attending a game, knowing full well that you intend to leave would be a waste of money and time. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington tweeted, “Can we just make it through a weekend without this administration abusing taxpayer dollars with jet travel!?

NY Times “Conservative” Calls For Abolishing Second Amendment http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8892--NY-Times-“Conservative”-Calls-For-Abolishing-Second-Amendment The New York Times’ token conservative columnist published a piece called for the repeal of the Second Amendment. Bret Stephens wrote, “I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment.” He goes on to explain that “more guns means more murder,” “more guns means less safety.” Stephens calls on liberals and moderates to stop waiting for the courts to restrict gun rights. Instead he encourages them to overturn the Second Amendment. “Expansive interpretations of the right to bear arms will be the law of the land — until the ‘right’ itself ceases to be.” Several conservative writers took issue with Stephen’s column. David Harsanyi writes that the claim that “more guns means more crime” actually “ignores the vast evidence that the number of guns does not correlate with the murder or the crime rates.” “[T]here is no way to quantify how many criminals are deterred by the presence of guns, or how many, for that matter, are turned away in the midst of crime. Has anyone calculated how many non-gun-owning families are safer because their neighbors own firearms?”

Bowe Bergdahl will likely plead guilty to charges of “desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.” The Obama administration was able to secure Bergdahl’s release after exchanging five Taliban commanders in 2014. The Army Sgt. claims he was held in brutal conditions. He claims he was “caged, kept in darkness, beaten and chained to a bed.” Bergdahl is facing five years on the desertion charge and life imprisonment for the charge of misbehavior before the enemy. The Sgt.’s defense attorney and the prosecutor both declined to say if “Bergdahl is planning to enter a guilty plea. “We continue to maintain careful respect for the military-judicial process, the rights of the accused and ensuring the case’s fairness and impartiality during this ongoing legal case,” Paul Boyce, an Army spokesman. The Taliban commanders are believed to have returned to active combat. If Bergdahl pleads guilty the soldiers who looked for him will be allowed to testify at his sentencing hearing. “The judge ruled a Navy SEAL and an Army National Guard sergeant wouldn’t have found themselves in separate firefights if they hadn’t been searching.”

Landlords will be barred from “disclosing information about immigration status in order to intimidate, harass or evict tenants without following proper procedures.” Immigrants would be allowed to sue civilly if landlord violate their rights. Additionally, “no state office or entity in California [can] compel a landlord to obtain and disclose information on a tenant’s immigration status.” State legislators don’t want Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to enforce current federal law on illegal immigration. Assemblyman David Chiu said, “Trump’s escalating war on immigrants is ripping apart families and mass deportations could be our new reality.” The effect of the new laws puts the “interests of illegal aliens first, ahead of legal, law-abiding California citizens,” wrote former California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly.

After December 15, users will no longer be able to sign in and all data will be deleted. When it launched in 1997, it was a revolution in online communication. In 2001 “it claimed more than 100 million registered users.” It allowed “instant access to friends and contacts on a user’s ‘buddy list.’” AOL was protective of its system and did not allow rival systems to communicate with its Instant Messenger platform. The popularity of the messaging system “waned amid the rise of text messaging, Google Chat and social networking sites.”

"Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation. We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore."

"I felt the tug of family at our reunion on Independence Day, and I have continued to feel it.” Porter said that 2018 was shaping up to be like 2006 when Democrats took control of Congress.

The rush to remove Confederate monuments is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. In San Antonio, Texas, taxpayers paid $258,680 to remove one single Confederate monument from Travis Park. An itemized list showed that it cost $147,775 to remove and transport the monument. $103,809 for the cost of police, fencing, barricades, and surveillance cameras. An additional $7,000 was spent to replant the park. The city initially approved only $150,000 for the removal. A statue of General Lee cost the city of Dallas, Texas $450,000 to remove. City politicians are considering changing the names of street signs and removing another monument. The second monument may cost the city an estimated $800,000.

The Republican Tax Plan Scam http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8882-The-Republican-Tax-Plan-Scam Under the tax plan being floated by Republicans two big changes would occur with how the government adjusts for inflation. Republicans are proposing doing away with the personal exemption which is indexed to inflation. It would be “partially” replaced “with a bigger Child Tax Credit,” which is currently not indexed to inflation. A bigger Child Tax Credit would initially help families, but “inflation would erode the additional benefit over time.” The other big change in the plan is the way in which inflation is measured for the tax code. The code currently used the Consumer Price Index. Under the Republican plan, the CPI would be replaced with chained CPI. This method “is consistently lower than traditional CPI.” The government would raise more in taxes under the adjustments and taxpayers would be left with less money over time. “It would especially hit low- and moderate-income households that rely on the Earned Income Tax Credit and standard deduction, but it would affect all taxpayers in some way.”

Pelosi Behavior Getting More Bizarre http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8880-Pelosi-Behavior-Getting-More-Bizarre House minority leader Nancy has been showing disturbing signs of suffering from a possible stroke, or even the onset of dementia in the last few months. Things appeared to get worse on Wednesday night at a town hall meeting televised by CNN. She struggled to get words to come and sometimes stared blankly at the audience or waived her hands like she was trying emphasize words she was not actually saying.

When she did actually say something she had trouble putting coherent sentences together and often just rambled. This may be the reason that more democrats in the House are calling for her to be replaced with a new leader.

Another Hurricane Threatens U.S. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8879-Another-Hurricane-Threatens-U.S. The hurricane season is not officially over until November and right on cue another storm is entering the Gulf of Mexico and heading toward the U.S. coast. Tropical storm Nate is predicted to be a category 1 hurricane by the time it makes landfall this Sunday along the Gulf Coast. It is a rather erratic storm so its path is hard to predict but right now it appears to be heading toward southeast Louisiana, making the flood prone city of New Orleans vulnerable.

While, it is not projected to be a major storm it could produce significant amounts of rain that could cause flooding. New Orleans is eight feet below sea level and relies on some aging and often unreliable pumps to get rain water out of the city.

NRA Endorses Regulation of Butt-stock System for Firearms http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8878-NRA-Endorses-Regulation-of-Butt-stock-System-for-Firearms In a move that has caught some people by surprise the National Rifle Association (NRA) has called on the ATF to regulate the use of the butt-stock system that is used on rifles like the AR-15 to make them fire more rapidly. These essentially turn semi-automatic weapons into fully automatic weapons, that have been outlawed since the 1930s. These systems were on several of the weapons used by Stephen Pollack in his murderous rampage in Las Vegas. In reality, few shooters use the systems because they cause the weapons to be inaccurate if not used by experts. Interestingly, the NRA wants the limitations to be done by ATF regulations and not by Congressional action that could include other gun control provisions.

House Republicans Pass Historic Budget Resolution http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8867-House-Republicans-Pass-Historic-Budget-Resolution Despite the fact that not one Democrat voted for it, the Republicans in the House of Representatives passed an historic budget for the year 2018 by a vote of 219-206. Eighteen Republicans voted against it. What makes the vote historic is the fact that it opens the door for passage of a tax reform and tax reduction plan through the reconciliation process. This means that if the Republicans in the Senate hold together the Democrats cannot use the 60 vote filibuster rule to stop it.

Democrats are determined to block any tax relief for American taxpayers and businesses, but Republicans are now in the driver’s seat. However, they cannot afford to have the defections in the Senate that sank the repeal of Obamacare.

North Korean Threat Continues to Grow http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8866-North-Korean-Threat-Continues-to-Grow In the past few months Intelligence sources in the United States and South Korea have continued to see more evidence that the North Korean nuclear program and missile programs are farther along than anyone had suspected. They have learned this not just from monitoring the regime’s testing of nuclear devices and missiles, but also “decoding” North Korean propaganda to determine what claims are fake and what may be true.

Recently, an independent research group that monitors the proliferation of chemical and biological has determined that Kim Jong Un’s military also has thousands more chemical and biological weapons than previously thought.

California Officially Becomes Sanctuary State http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8865-California-Officially-Becomes-Sanctuary-State Governor Jerry Brown has signed a new law officially making California a sanctuary state where illegals will be protected from federal immigration laws and provide with free legal services in addition to all of the other “free” stuff they get. California already spends millions of taxpayer dollars providing free food, housing, education, and medical care to millions of people who have broken our laws by coming into the country illegally. In the meantime, citizens are fleeing California in droves to get away from incredibly high taxes and ridiculous regulations that hurt businesses. None of this seems to concern Brown or the liberals in the state legislature. They are going to protect illegals at all costs.

It has been reported that he was gambling heavily in the Mandalay Bay casino in the days before the attack. It has also been reported that he had a female companion that was obviously not his girlfriend who was out of the country. There have also been questions about whether he had help getting all of the weapons and ammunition into the hotel room, and whether he had an escape plan that obviously failed.

Russian Plans Retaliation Over Consulate Closure http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8863-Russian-Plans-Retaliation-Over-Consulate-Closure Russia plans to retaliate after the United States ordered the Russian consulate in San Francisco closed. After the consulate was closed, American authorities broke the locks and entered the building. In a statement released on Thursday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the American officials who participated “intruders.” The State Department said that the Americans “took a ‘walkthrough’ of the Russian diplomatic facility.” The U.S. told the Russians to close the consulate in response to the Russians ordering several hundred embassy staff to leave Russia. The Kremlin “welcomed new U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman” on Tuesday. Putin made it clear that relations between the two countries are “below satisfactory” and pushed for relations based on “equality, respect for national interests, and noninterference with each other’s internal affairs.” Ambassador Huntsman responded, “I look forward to working to rebuild trust between our two countries and to strengthening the bilateral relationship based on cooperation on common interests.”

No Bailout for Puerto Rico http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8862-No-Bailout-for-Puerto-Rico President Trump has no plans to bail out Puerto Rico. The island is $73 billion in debt. The island’s government filed for bankruptcy in May. In anticipation that the federal government would bail out the island’s government, big Wall Street companies “bought tens of billions of dollars in defaulted Puerto Rico municipal bonds for as low as 30 cent on the dollar last year.” On Tuesday the president told Fox Business News, “They owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street and we’re going to have to wipe that out. You’re going to say goodbye to that, I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs, but whoever it is you can wave goodbye to that.” In response, Puerto Rico’s bonds fell by 31 percent as hedge funds panicked at the news. According to White House budget director, while the United States plans to assist the island recover from the hurricane, “Puerto Rico is going to have to figure out how to fix the errors that its made for the last generation on its own finances.”

Major Democratic Donor In Trouble http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8861-Major-Democratic-Donor-In-Trouble Democrat supporter and donor Harvey Weinstein has settled at least “eight sexual harassment complaints over 25 years between 1990 and 2015.” Weinstein is an Oscar-winning producer and supporter of Hillary Clinton. After the news broke, Weinstein said, “I appreciate the way I’ve behave with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.” In light of the revelation, Weinstein will see a therapist and take a “leave of absence from his film company.” But he won’t be doing penance. Instead he’ll be channeling “that anger” into more productive things. He announced, “I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention.” He also indicated that he’d go after President Trump. Weinstein hosted a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in his New York home in 2016. He also employed former President Obama’s oldest daughter as an intern this year.

Snowflake Panics Over Shoelace http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8860-Snowflake-Panics-Over-Shoelace At Michigan State University a student called police after seeing a “noose” hanging outside her residence hall. Police conducted interviews and a thorough investigation. After solemnly weighing the evidence, police decided that “the object was a packaged leather shoelace and not a noose.” Helping police make their determination was that “the matching packaged shoelace was found outside the residence hall.” “Officers located and spoke to the student who lost both of the shoelaces.” “The student who lost the shoelaces lives on the same floor as the student who made the original report.” The student who made the report received high praise from the university’s president, Lou Anna K. Simon. She praised the student’s “courage” to make the report. “This type of behavior is not tolerated on our campus. No Spartan should ever feel targeted based on their race, or other ways in which they identify.”

Politicians Flee http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8859-Politicians-Flee Twenty percent of the House of Representatives in Illinois will not be running fore re-election in 2018. Many of these fleeing are Republicans who voted to raise taxes so as to get a state budget passed. It is a classic case of lawmakers not wanting to face the voters. In addition to the thirty lawmakers who won’t be standing, other incumbents are expected to lose their seats in the election. As legislators look to flee, residents of Illinois are increasingly leaving the state. United Van Lines has published reports for years showing trends in where people are moving. States that tend to be poorly run tend to have “higher out-migration” rates. “Illinois, New York and New Jersey account for five of the ten cities with high net out-migration rates.” Anecdotally, right after the Illinois state legislature voted to raise the “individual income tax rate from 3.75 to 4.95 percent” local financial planners began receiving phone calls from worried retirees asking if they should leave the state.

Steele was hired by an opposition research firm to find dirt on candidate Trump. The report alleged that the Trump campaign “directly colluded it Russian operatives before the election. it also claims that the Kremlin used blackmail material against Trump.” Everyone mentioned in the dossier has dismissed it as fake. It is unknown how much the FBI relied upon the report, “though the FBI reportedly cited the document in an application for a surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.” Steele has refused to meet with the Senate panel which is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the election. The committee chairman, Senator Richard Burr, said that committee members were “unable to assess the credibility of the dossier without talking to Steele.”

Kaspersky was founded by a “computer scientist who was trained at a KGB-sponsored technical school.” The NSA has never allowed the software to be put on its work computers. But there are “no prohibitions on it being used on employee’s private home computers.”

CIA Says China Can Do More Over North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8856-CIA-Says-China-Can-Do-More-Over-North-Korea According to a top CIA official for the agency’s East Asia Mission Center, China can do more to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. Michael Collins said, "It's clear the Chinese want to maintain influence with this regime and are probably worried about undercutting that if they pull all of their support away from North Korea.” "Their challenge, in my view, is to … assess the extent of support they provide to North Korea and to what extent that encourages North Korean behavior." 90 percent of North Korea’s exports go through China, making China’s cooperation important in the enforcement of sanctions. All of North Korea’s oil imports come from China which gives China great leverage over North Korea’s regime. "China's calculation as to what to do on North Korea is not determined solely, if at all, by North Korean behavior. It's that they worry what will happen in response to North Korean behavior,” said Collins.

D.C. Will Not Appeal Gun-Carry Ruling http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8855-D.C.-Will-Not-Appeal-Gun-Carry-Ruling Washington D.C.’s attorney general will not appeal a federal appeals court decision that struck down a gun-carry law. Attorney General Karl Racine said, “I continue to believe the District’s ‘good reason’ requirement is a common-sense, and constitutional, gun regulation. However, we must reckon with the fact that an adverse decision by the Supreme Court could have wide-ranging negative effects not just on District residents, but on the country as a whole.” He went on to say that after “careful consideration” and consultation, he decided that the “wisest course of action to protect public safety in the District and nationwide” would be to not appeal to the Supreme Court. According to the appeals court, the District’s “good reason” clause was “designed with the intention of denying most normal citizens the ability to carry a gun.” There was a good chance that a Supreme Court decision would have overturned similar laws in other states. However, the Supreme Court may hear the issue at some point in the future. The circuits are now split because of conflicting decisions.

She demonstrated that she supports the Second Amendment and that she will support the border wall that the president wants to put up on the southern border. “I know the left calls me a wing nut or a knuckle-dragging conservative,” she said. “And you know what, I say that’s all right.

Optimism on the Economy at a Ten Year High http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8851-Optimism-on-the-Economy-at-a-Ten-Year-High A recent survey by CNBC shows that 43% of the American people think the economy is excellent or good or many think it will continue to improve. This is the highest level since the survey was started ten years ago. The continued rise in the stock market is part of the reason for this optimism, but there are many other factors.

Many people believe that this will eventually result in a boost for President Trump’s approval rating that has only shown a slight uptick in the last few weeks. However, his base is holding solid and most sitting presidents get a bump when the economy is good and the public is optimistic about it.

Catalonia Prepares to Break Away from Spain http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8850-Catalonia-Prepares-to-Break-Away-from-Spain Following its vote for independence Catalonia is preparing to take the next step this Monday and declare itself an independent country. This will constitute a major blow to both Spain and the European Union. Some are saying that the consequences can be worse than BREXIT. The leaders in Catalonia have indicated a willingness to negotiate the Spanish government, but that offer has been rejected. Ironically, the referendum for independence might not have passed if it wasn’t for the Spanish police using sometimes brutal measures to try and keep people from voting.

However, since Catalonia has its own language and culture the movement for independence has been growing for some time. Now there is a growing concern about possible civil war.

During the massacre in Vegas police officers, many of them without tactical gear or heavy weapons rushed toward the area where they thought the shooter was. Other officers used their bodies to shield civilians from the gunfire. Some officers were killed or wounded.

After this, one would think that the demonstration in St. Louis was a memorial for the victims and to honor the heroes. It was not, it was members of Black Lives Matter and other leftist group demonstrating their hatred of police. While other Americans mourned these people were blocking a major highway.

It’s a death cult.” During his ban, Batten wrote to Twitter to explain his remarks and demand that his account be reinstated. In his letter to the company, Batten said, “What I have said regarding ‘Muslims killing other Muslims more than they kill Infidels’ is merely a matter of accepted fact… exemplified by the Shia v Sunni conflict for the last 1,400 years, and many other internal Islamic feuds.” He never received a response. However the ban was lifted on October 3rd. His first tweet was to pick up right where he’d left off. He doubled down on his remarks tweeting, “My twitter account was suspended recently because I said ‘Islam was a death cult’. Well I am back now, and Islam is still a death cult.” In a matter of 24 hours, he’d netted over 2,000 new followers. Batten said, “It just goes to show people are paying attention.”

Arpaio Pardon Valid http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8843-Arpaio-Pardon-Valid A federal judge ruled that President Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio was valid. She dismissed the criminal case against Arpaio after citing Supreme Court precedence. With the pardon, prosecutors won’t be able to hold Arpaio accountable for violating a judge’s order to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Several advocacy groups as well as 30 Democrats in Congress asked a federal judge to hold the pardon invalid, arguing that “clemency is an encroachment by Trump on the power and independence of the courts.” While dismissing the case, the judge “held off on ruling on Arpaio’s request to throw out all orders in the case, including a blistering 14-page ruling in which the judge explained her original reasoning in finding that Arpaio was guilty of a crime.” Arpaio was found guilty of racially profiling Latinos on immigration patrols. John Keller, the prosecutor in the case, agreed that it was “appropriate to dismiss the case against Arpaio.” Keller went on to say, “This prosecution is over. The defendant will never be held accountable for his contempt of Judge Snow’s injunction.”

Accounting Fraud at the U.S. Treasury http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8842-Accounting-Fraud-at-the-U.S.-Treasury Earlier this year the U.S. Treasury had to resort to extraordinary measures to keep the government running. During that period the nation’s official debt stood still at $19.9 trillion. Within 24 hours of the debt ceiling being raised however, the official U.S. debt skyrocketed another $317 billion. One extraordinary measure that the Treasury resorts to when it cannot sell more debt is to raid the federal employee’s retirement fund. The fund has $225 billion. If the Treasury borrows from it, it does not have to count that borrowing towards the official debt of the country. Right after President Trump signed the legislation, the Treasury repaid the borrowed funds and sold more debt. Since the debt deal was signed September 8, the federal government has added $335 billion to the federal debt. When it comes to dealing responsibly with the nation’s finances, there are no serious people in charge. Serious people do not knowingly keep spending their country deeper into debt.

Anonymous Republican congressional aides said Ayers’ remarks were aimed at covering for the vice-president’s inability to “whip enough votes to pass an Obamacare repeal bill in the Senate.” Republicans have been unable to cobble together the votes necessary to enact promised reforms on healthcare and taxes. Voter’s frustration with Republicans may lead to attempts to primary incumbents who are up for re-election in 2018. Some Republican strategists think that if Republicans lose their governing majority, that it will provide a “convenient foil and ease the path to re-election two years later.” Several Republican incumbents have already announced their intention to not seek re-election in 2018.

Private Aid in Puerto Rico http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8840-Private-Aid-in-Puerto-Rico While President Trump and a Puerto Rican mayor have a war of words and blame each other for incompetence, pop star Daddy Yankee jumped into the mess and delivered aid. He gave “$100,000 in assistance to feed the people whose homes were destroyed, who were left without power or water after the hurricane . . . .” The money bought food for approximately 9,000 family in Toa Baja. Each family received 59 pounds of food and rations of water. While touring a food bank, Daddy Yankee provided 200 gallons of diesel to run the freezer’s generators for another week. The generators were within two hours of running out of fuel, risking 25,000 pounds of frozen food. Daddy Yankee said, “We got the diesel! We got the diesel! We can’t wait for the government.” If there is any silver lining in the disaster, it is that people will see how incompetent government is. When a private citizen can get aid to victims, it might revolutionize the tendency towards dependency.

Commie West Point Grad’s Were Well Known http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8839--Commie-West-Point-Grad’s-Were-Well-Known The West Point graduate who showed the statement, “Communism will win” was long known for his Marxist anti-American views. Spenser Rapone was reported in 2015 as being insubordinate and having “extremist political views.” The Academy issued a statement last week saying Ropone’s beliefs “in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy of the U.S. Army… Second Lieutenant Ropone’s chain of command is aware of his actions and is looking into the matter.” In a sworn statement, an Academy history professor reported, “From his various online rantings and posts, it appears that Cadet Rapone is an avowed Marxist, which is completely out of line with the values of this nation and its Army.” Despite the report and Cadet Rapone’s well known Marxist rantings on social media, and despite the urging of Rapone’s chain of command, West Point allowed Rapone to graduate as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. West Point’s public affairs office has refused to answer questions as to why Rapone was allowed to graduate. A retired Army Colonel wrote that “every officer from [Rapone’s] first line supervisor to the U.S. Military Academy Superintendent must be relieved and reprimanded” for failure to discharge Rapone from West Point years earlier.

Iran Nuclear Deal Up For Decertification http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8838-Iran-Nuclear-Deal-Up-For-Decertification President Trump is not expected to formally recertify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal. Secretary of State Tillerson and Defense Secretary Mattie have pressured the president to preserve the deal. However the president is reportedly “frustrated with Iran’s continued tests of ballistic missile technology and rogue operations targeting U.S. forces in the region.” By decertifying the nuclear deal, Congress would be able to impose sanctions on the Iranian government and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. The International Atomic Energy Agency is unable to determine if “Iran is working on sensitive nuclear explosive technology” because of the restrictions that Iran has put on inspectors. Senator Ted Cruz said, "If the Iranians are serious about a peaceful program, they need to prove it. Iran's continued refusal to allow IAEA access to military sites—a clear requirement of the terms of the deal—renders the JCPOA utterly ineffective, and, even worse, a sham that only facilitates Iran's acquiring nuclear weapons. This absence of any meaningful verification is yet another reason to vitiate this foolhardy agreement." Iran said that it would walk away from the deal if the Trump administration fails to certify that Iran is in compliance.

Unaffordable Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8837-Unaffordable-Obamacare Half of Americans can’t afford more than $100 a month in health insurance premiums. A survey conducted by HealthPocket asked 1,225 respondents what the highest premium they could afford in 2018 for health insurance. Half of respondents put the number at $100 or less. 19 percent said they could pay $200 a month, 9 percent said they could pay $300. A 40-year-old nonsmoker is paying $350 a month for the bronze plan, $411 for the silver plan, $522 for the gold plan and $623 for the platinum plan. 83 percent of Obamacare enrollees receive subsidies. After taxpayer subsidies, the average premium in 2017 was $106. The average unsubsidized premium was $489 a month. Politicians in Washington are looking at offering a copper plan that would put the price of healthcare premiums at about $100 a month.

One Standard for Democrats; Another Standard for the Rest of Us http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8836-One-Standard-for-Democrats;-Another-Standard-for-the-Rest-of-Us Democrat Senator Tom Carper announced that he will oppose President Trump’s nominee to the Environmental Protection Agency because of the nominees ties to the chemical industry. Michael Dourson was nominated to be an “assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.” Dourson founded the Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment nonprofit corporation and previously worked for the EPA for 15 years. Senator Carper said of Dourson, “This is the first time anyone with such clear and extensive ties to the chemical industry has been picked to regulate that industry.” Senator Carper’s objections are hypocritical. Senator Carper has in excess of $650,000 invested in energy stocks that the Environment and Public Works Committee regulates. A spokesman for Carper called the “efforts to cast a shadow of impropriety . . . [as] nothing more than a cheap shot and a diversionary tactic. . . .”

The American soldiers were training with local troops. Lt. Commander Anthony Flavo said, “We can confirm reports that a joint U.S. and Nigerien patrol came under hostile fire in southwest Niger.” The Americans have bene providing counterterrorism “training and security assistance to the Nigerien armed forces.” American troops continue to be in Niger as a result of President Obama’s “strategy to train, equip and otherwise support indigenous armies and security forces to fight their own wars instead of deploying large American forces to far-flung hot spots.” The Niger government is trying to stop the “flow of insurgents across Niger’s lightly guarded borders with Mali, Nigeria, and Libya.” The United States is using Niger as a base from which to launch drones to monitor Islamic State insurgents.

NFL Ratings Continue to Drop http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8834-NFL-Ratings-Continue-to-Drop The ratings for the NFL continued to fall this past Monday when the Kansas City Chiefs played the Washington Redskins. This has occurred despite the fact that fewer players participated in the anthem protests last Sunday than the week before. However, the NFL cause was not helped by the actions of two Kansas City players, Marcus Peters and Ukeme Eligwe sat down during the anthem immediately after a moment of silence was held for the victims of the Las Vegas massacre. In the meantime, it has been reported that NFL owners are deeply divided over the protests with some wanting them to end while others continue to support the protests. In the meantime a major car dealership in New Jersey has pulled its NFL ads for the rest of the season.

This has occurred while the company and many of its executives are under investigation for the loss of sensitive and confidential information of over 145 million Equifax customers. Several of these investigations are being conducted by Congressional committees.

The IRS has claimed that Equifax is the only company capable of providing the services it needs, but many members of congress are unconvinced.

Liberal Television Critics Hate new Network Military Shows http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8832-Liberal-Television-Critics-Hate-new-Network-Military-Shows Liberal movie and television critics have often trashed any shows that appeared to be patriotic and pro U.S. military. Now, many of them are hysterical over three new network shows “Navy Seals” “The Brave” and “Valor”. The shows are being criticized as being overly patriotic by placing members of the American military in a heroic light, and creating a “vengeful spirit” among Americans when it comes to the terrorists who want to kill them.

On the other hand some of these same critics are very excited about an Amazon show that will be the first to show full transgender nudity.

Mark Cuban Considering Run for President http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8831-Mark-Cuban-Considering-Run-for-President Liberal billionaire Mark Cuban claims to be an independent when it comes to politics, but supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, and has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and his agenda. However, the evidence is overwhelming that Cuban has been a far left liberal for years. The most infamous action he took was in 2007 when he financially supported a Brian De Palma’s anti-military movie “Redacted”.

The movie was against the U.S. involvement in Iraq, but was widely criticize for trashing U.S. soldiers with false claims of brutality and murder, and according to many critics put American troops in greater danger of being killed. Neither Cuban nor De Palma appeared to care.

Recent posts of Nancy Pelosi making somewhat incoherent ramblings, and Maxine Waters’ outlandish ravings against Trump have been censored by YouTube by demonetizing the site that posted them.

YouTube has declared these videos “unsuitable for most advertisers, so it will not allow the site to make money off the videos. This is interesting since the videos contain no outside commentary; they just present the unedited words of liberal politicians. It appears to many people that YouTube and its parent company Google are so intent on protecting the liberal agenda that they will censor everyone and everything that threatens it, especially the truth.

Las Vegas Shooter did Extensive Planning http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8829-Las-Vegas-Shooter-did-Extensive-Planning In the short time since the horrific Las Vegas attack authorities have concluded that the shooter, Stephen Pollack, engaged in extensive planning for the attack. This was obviously not planned overnight and in fact probably took months to plan. There are many questions to be answered including how and when he picked out the exact room where he could shoot down in the crowd.

He also managed to take ten suitcases loaded with firearms and ammunition into the Mandalay Bay resort hotel, set up several surveillance cameras including one in the hallway, and then break out two hotel windows to set up his field of fire. All of this preparation required considerable time and money.

Not only was Hillary Clinton doing almost incoherent tweets, but Democrats were already sending out appeals for fund raising to fight for gun control. Then in the ultimate insult to Americans at least three Democrat House members refused to participate in a moment of silence for the victims.

Dealership Pulls NFL Advertising http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8827-Dealership-Pulls-NFL-Advertising The controversy over NFL players kneeling or standing for the National Anthem is now hitting the NFL in the pocketbook. A New Jersey car dealership will pull its television ads for the remainder of the 2017 NFL season. “The National Football League and its owners have shown their fans and marketing partners that they do not have a comprehensive policy to ensure that players stand and show respect for America and our flag during the playing of the national anthem. We have canceled all of our NFL advertising on the Optimum and Infinity (cable) networks,” said Steve Kalafer, owner of Flemington Car and Truck Country dealership. The decision came after Kalafer heard employees and customers comment on how disrespectful NFL players were towards the anthem. Kalafer was particularly taken aback by the lack of firm leadership by the NFL and team owners. “As the NFL parses the important nationwide issues of ‘social justice’ and ‘freedom of speech,’ it is clear that a firm direction by them is not forthcoming,” Kalafer said. Other businesses in the country are cancelling their advertising. DirectTV offered its customers refunds who mentioned NFL player’s disrespect for the anthem.

President Trump Being Protected From Himself http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8826-President-Trump-Being-Protected-From-Himself President Trump has increasingly surrounded himself with Deep State Generals and has let the people go who worked to get him elected. Now that the Deep State is in control of the president, the information the president gets is also controlled. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly won’t let Representative Dana Rohrabacher talk to the president about Julian Assange. The WikiLeaks founder claims that he has evidence that the Russians did not interfere in the 2016 election. According to Rohrabacher, "The White House staff and other top people in the administration are trying to protect the president from himself. That's what they think and in fact they are usurping his authority to make decisions — the important decisions — himself." Rohrabacher met with Assange in August in a three-hour meeting. Speculation is that Assange wants a pardon in exchange for providing information that puts to bed the Russia narrative.

Democrats Push for Gun Control http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8825-Democrats-Push-for-Gun-Control Democrats in Congress are planning to push gun control legislation in the wake of the Law Vegas massacre. Democratic leaders believe they can push modest proposals such as “expanded background checks and closing loopholes.” The Democratic leadership is less supportive of pushing legislation “to restrict military-style rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines.” Attempts to pass these in the past have failed by large margins. Senator Deanne Feinstein wants to resurrect a part of the assault weapons ban that “allows you to convert semi-automatic guns to automatic guns.” Hard left gun control activists want Congress to push bans on semi-automatic rifles, pistol grips, barrel shrouds, and high-capacity magazines. Democratic leaders are also pressuring President Trump to break with GOP lawmakers and find a “reasonable solution.” President Trump wandered into gun control territory Tuesday morning when he said, “We’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes on.” During the campaign, candidate Trump repeatedly told gun owners that he would support their Second Amendment rights.

Prison Time for Viewing Terrorist Content http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8824--Prison-Time-for-Viewing-Terrorist-Content Politicians in Britain want to put people in prison for viewing “terrorist content” over the internet. Offenders could receive as much as 15 years in prison. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said, “Want to make sure those who view despicable terrorist content online, including jihadi websites, far-right propaganda and bomb-making instructions, face the full force of the law.” The proposal gives the British government the ability to restrict internet freedom and to shut down speech that it does not like such as criticism of Islam. Instead of restricting immigration, British politicians want to restrict what people view or say online. By way of example, “After a British soldier was beheaded in broad daylight by radical Muslims in 2013, law enforcement arrested several people over Facebook posts criticizing Islam.” Conservative commentator Katie Hopkins was “investigated by London police for a tweet calling for British men to take action against terrorists” after the Manchester bombing. Anyone who dissents from the leftist agenda could face a hate speech charge.

Belgium Moves to Expel Radical Imam http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8823-Belgium-Moves-to-Expel-Radical-Imam Belgium is taking the politically incorrect position of expelling an Egyptian Imam. The Imam preaches at one of Belgium’s most high profile mosques. Authorities are concerned that the Imam is “very radicalized.” He’s lived in Belgium for 13 years . "We have had very clear signals he is a man who is very radicalized, salafist, very conservative and dangerous for our society and national security," according to Immigration Minister Theo Francken. "Everybody knows there is a problem with the Grand Mosque in Brussels. I decided to withdraw the residency permit of the Imam of this mosque.” The decision to not to renew the imam’s permit was made in March. However he was able to extend his stay in the country by appealing the decision in the courts. A decision is expected by October 24. In 2016, Islamic attackers killed 32 people and injured over 300 other people. After the attacks, the Grand Mosque was forced to “defend itself against claims of ‘forcing practices of Islam’ and of developing a ‘hotbed for extremism.’” http://freebeacon.com/issues/belgium-moves-expel-m...

Restaurant Experimenting with Robots http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8822-Restaurant-Experimenting-with-Robots A hamburger restaurant that former President Obama once praised for paying higher entry-level wages will open a new restaurant. But it will be staffed by robots. In 2014 the president and vice-president ate at Shake Shack in Washington D.C. and were joined by four employees. The former president said that the place had “great burgers and pays its employees more than 10 bucks an hour.” However, a New York City location opening in October 2017 will be staffed by “robot ordering kiosks.” The kiosks will not accept cash. Customers will get a text message when their order is ready. The restaurant will staff some humans. They will be paid $15 an hour. As politicians push for higher wages, businesses will have to innovate by relying less on humans and more on machines. Fewer entry level jobs will mean fewer opportunities for employment. While the push for $15 an hour looks great, customers will likely not be willing to pay the higher retail prices required to support higher wages.

U.S. Troops To Go Into Conflict in Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8821-U.S.-Troops-To-Go-Into-Conflict-in-Afghanistan American troops will be fighting closer to the front lines in Afghanistan. According to Defense Secretary James Mattis, U.S. troops will be fighting alongside Afghan troops to force the Taliban into peace talks. Mattis spoke to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. "The fighting will continue to be carried out by our Afghan partners, but our advisers will accompany tactical units to advise and assist and bring NATO fire support to bear when needed. Make no mistake, this is combat duty, but the Afghan forces remain in the lead to do the fighting." The Pentagon plans to add an additional 3,000 troops to carry out the new strategy. It will bring American troop levels up to 14,000. Mattis said, “Our goal is a stabilized Afghanistan achieved by an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned peace process." Senator McCain complained the he did not know enough of the “crucial details of this strategy.” The ailing senator scolded Mattis saying, “[T]his committee will not be a rubber stamp for any policy or president. We must be well informed. We must be convinced of the merits of the administration’s actions.”

Scalise Talks About Second Amendment http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8820-Scalise-Talks-About-Second-Amendment Representative Steve Scalise said that being shot has fortified his belief in the Second Amendment. He told Fox News that his armed security detail saved his life. Scalise gave his remarks in the aftermath of the nation’s largest mass shooting. He said that “We shouldn’t first be thinking of promoting our political agenda.” He said, “[T]he first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who are injured and doing whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement.” Scalise pointed out that the proposed gun control ideas would not have done anything to stop the shooting in Las Vegas. “That gunman actually cleared background checks, so to promote some kind of gun control is the wrong way to approach this.” "Regular citizens that just have a passionate belief in the Second Amendment that have their own guns use guns every single day to protect themselves against criminals," added Scalise.

"Even if they were complying with it—even if it was fully verifiable they were complying with it, which it's not and which they aren't, it is still not in our viable national security interests because it does not block Iran's path to a bomb," said the Senator. Cotton is urging a renegotiation of the deal that would strengthen it and permit sanctions and military action. European allies do not want to reopen the agreement. China and Russia are opposed to renegotiating the deal as well. Iran’s leader said that if the United States abandons the deal it will “respond decisively and resolutely.” On Tuesday Pentagon officials told Congress that Iran is in technical compliance with the deal. However, there is nothing to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons once the deal expires.

The bill was approved on a 237-189 vote. Representative Chris Smith spoke on the House floor saying, “Today we know that unborn babies not only die but suffer excruciating pain during dismemberment abortion — a cruelty that rips arms and legs off a helpless child.” Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers has a ten year old son who has Down Syndrome. She said, “Part of being an American is not letting others define us. I look at my son, Cole, and see a healthy 10-year old boy working his way through 5th grade. His life is different than what we expected, but he plays sports and is in cub scouts. I’m proud to support legislation that reflects our values and protects the sanctity of life, and I urge my colleagues to do the same.” The legislation will now go to the Senate, and if it passes the Senate, President Trump is expected to sign it into law.

The people of Vegas responded during the shooting by helping others out of the line of fire even at the risk of their own lives. First responders used their own bodies to shield people from the hail of bullets while police charged the hotel when they realized where the fire was coming from.

Other citizens drove their private vehicles into the area and loaded the wounded on to them to take them to hospitals, and relieve the crush of some of the wounded facing the EMTs. Then the day after the attacks, with over 500 people in local hospitals, thousands of people lined up in stifling heat for hours to donate blood.

The Spanish government has declared the vote illegal and meaningless and has dispatched police to shut down the polling places.

This has resulted in hundreds of violent clashes between police and voters and also between the citizens of the region who are divided over the issue of independence. Leaders of other European nations such as Great Britain are highly critical of the actions being taken by the Spanish government.

Supreme Court to Hear Major Cases in new Term http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8813-Supreme-Court-to-Hear-Major-Cases-in-new-Term The United States Supreme Court is beginning a historic new term this coming Monday with many major cases to be decided. There are 43 cases currently on the docket with more expected to be added. The issues include civil rights, presidential powers, privacy rights and religious liberty issues.

It will also be historic because it will be the first full term for Neil Gorsuch, the newest justice on the court, and quite possibly the last term for Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is rumored to be planning to retire at the end of this term. His retirement would put President Trump in a position to solidify a conservative majority on the court for years to come.

Democrats Immediately Turn Vegas Shooting Political http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8812-Democrats-Immediately-Turn-Vegas-Shooting-Political The first responders were still recovering bodies from the site of the horrendous mass shooting in Las Vegas when the liberal Democrats decided there was no time to allow people to mourn. It was more important that they turn the tragedy into possible political gain, just like they have tried to do with the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The left released its major attack dog on the NRA and President Trump. Hillary Clinton tweeted out that it was time to stand up to the NRA. Members of the liberal media joined into the chorus, and a lawyer for CBS was fired for posting on Facebook that she felt no sympathy for the victims in Las Vegas since they were country music fans and therefore probably gun toting Republicans.

ISIS Claims Responsibility for Las Vegas Attacks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8811-ISIS-Claims-Responsibility-for-Las-Vegas-Attacks The Islamic State has claimed that the Las Vegas shooter was a soldier of ISIS who had converted to Islam several months ago. This is not surprising since ISIS often make such claims when there are terrorist attacks or mass shootings. However, at this point, there is no proof that the shooter, Stephen Paddock had any terrorist connections or even any political affiliations.

The motive for the shootings is under investigation, and a search of the shooter’s home has found additional firearms, ammunition, and explosives. Several electronic devices were found and are being searched for any clues as to the true motive.

At Least 59 Dead, Hundreds Wounded in Las Vegas Shooting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8810-At-Least-59-Dead,-Hundreds-Wounded-in-Las-Vegas-Shooting At least 59 people were killed and over 500 wounded in a mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night. The shooter has been identified as 64 year old Stephen Paddock, a resident of Mesquite, Nevada with no criminal history. He apparently managed to bring multiple firearms, including automatic weapons, and thousands of rounds of ammunition into a hotel room in the Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

He fired into a crowd of thousands of people at an outdoor country music concert. He was reported to have committed suicide before police breached his location.

Muslim Only Laundromat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8809-Muslim-Only-Laundromat In Malaysia, a laundromat is catering solely to Muslims. It is “designed to maintain ‘purity’ of Islamic clothing.” A sign plainly says, “This laundrette only accepts Muslim customers for reasons of purity. Any inconvenience is very much regretted.” The owner of the laundromat defended his decision saying, “For Muslims, it is not just about clean clothes but cleanliness as a whole. I am just providing an avenue for Muslims to do that.” A photograph of the sign went viral on social media, sparking a “debate over the growing influence of Islamic theology in Malaysian society.” The Sultan of Malaysia said that the Royal Family was “deeply appalled” by the signage. The Sultan went on to say that Malaysia is a “progressive, modern, and moderate state.” He went on to say, “I find this action to be totally unacceptable as this is extremist in nature.” Malaysia is 60 percent Muslim. Government authorities have sought to push for a more radical form of Islam. The government has censored film and music as well as imposing a “blasphemy law on the country’s non-Muslim population.”

Bernie Sanders’ Advisor Finds Solution to America’s Economic Woes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8808-Bernie-Sanders’-Advisor-Finds-Solution-to-America’s-Economic-Woes A former economic advisor to Senator Bernie Sanders has the solution to all the problems within the American economy. Print money! In an opinion piece for The Los Angeles Times Stephanie Kelton writes, “Are you telling me that the government can just make money appear out of nowhere like magic? Absolutely. Congress has special powers: It’s the patent holder on the U.S. dollar. No one else is legally allowed to create it. This means that Congress can always afford the pony because it can always create the money to pay for it.” She went on to point out that the American public supports many of Bernie Sanders’ ideas. “63% support free tuition and 66% support Medicare for all.” To make this scheme work, she says, [A]ll we have to do is produce enough hospitals, doctors, nurses, universities and teachers.” Meaning just print up the money to fund these programs. Kelton understands that printing money will cause inflation. She has a solution for that. Raise taxes! “There are plenty of ways for the government to get a handle on inflation, though. For example, it can take money out of the economy through taxation.” Government involvement in the economy distorts free markets and the money supply. Under Stephanie Kelton’s plan, government would be a powerful central planning entity that would force the economy to produce things for which there is no free market.

U.S. Born Terrorist Facing Life http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8807-U.S.-Born-Terrorist-Facing-Life An American born “al-Qaeda terrorist” is facing life in prison after a New York jury found him guilty of “conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction to attack an American base in Afghanistan.” Prosecutor Richard Tuckers said, “This guy is for real, and he is a bad guy. He is an honest-to-goodness al-Qaeda bad guy.” Other convictions included “conspiracy to murder U.S. nationals,” “conspiracy to bomb a government facility and conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.” Farekh became “radicalized watching video recordings encouraging violent jihad, listened to jihadist lectures, including lectures by now-deceased . . . leader Anwar al-Awlaki.” He joined al Qaeda “and received training.” Muhanad Mahmoud al-Farekh participated in several terror incidents including an IED attack in 2009 on an American military base in Afghanistan. Farekh is expected to be sentenced in January of 2018.

FEMA Doing Great Despite Challenges http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8806-FEMA-Doing-Great-Despite-Challenges A former deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services is complementing FEMA for its response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. “[W]e may find that FEMA did a more Herculean task, in some ways in Maria, in terms of the distance they had to travel, the amount of logistics they had to bring, and the propping up of the local response effort,” said Tevi Troy. Puerto Rico has proved to be a challenge to FEMA. FEMA not only has to bring materials to the island, but the agency is having to take over the local response effort. “[T]he first responders in the situation are victims themselves, which means they’re not necessarily showing up to work and doing the distribution and the reducing and all the other stuff that takes place as part of recovery.” Troy said that the poor economy in Puerto Rico and a struggling government “made the federal response to Puerto Rico’s problems more difficult.” Texas and Florida have two of the strongest response networks in the country according to Troy.

Cutting Government Waste http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8805-Cutting-Government-Waste Two Republican Representatives have co-sponsored a bill to shut down the Department of Education by the end of 2018. The legislation is remarkable for its brevity. It contains one sentence. “The Department of Education Shall Terminate on December 31. 2018.” According to the bill’s author, Representative Massie, “Neither Congress nor the President, through his appointees, has the constitutional authority to dictate how and what our children must learn.” The legislation gained the support of Representative Todd Rokita, who is the current chairman of the House subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education. “Ultimately, our goals should still be to limit the federal government to only those duties enumerated within the Constitution, so it is right to continue to take steps in that direction,” said Rokita. Federal bureaucrats cannot possibly know what local schools, parents, and students need. Keeping the federal government out of education would strengthen local control and produce better educated students.

GOP Tax Plan Comes Under Fire http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8804-GOP-Tax-Plan-Comes-Under-Fire Senator Rand Paul criticized the Republican tax-reform plan on Monday. The Tax Policy Center (TPC) issued a report saying that “many middle-class taxpayers could see their taxes go up.” Rand Paul tweeted, “This is a GOP tax plan? Possibly 30% of middle class gets a tax hike? I hope the finale details are better than this.” “The TPC’s analysis found that by 2027, almost 30 percent of taxpayers with income between about $50,000 and $150,000 would see their taxes increase. . . .” Republican tax writers took issue with the Tax Policy Center’s interpretation. “The TPC makes a variety of overreaching and unrealistic assumptions about policy decisions Members of Congress still have to make as we draft pro-growth tax legislation,” said Representative Kevin Brady. Currently the plan would create three tax brackets of 12, 25, and 35 percent. The standard deduction would double and the child tax credit would be expanded. Itemized deductions would be eliminated.

U.S. Will Ask Cuba To Reduce Its Embassy Staff http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8803-U.S.-Will-Ask-Cuba-To-Reduce-Its-Embassy-Staff The Trump administration plans to push the Cuban government to reduce its embassy staff in Washington DC by 60 percent. The move comes after the United States withdrew a substantial number of its own embassy personnel in response to mysterious sonic attacks that have injured several Americans. Injuries range “from minor pain and nausea to permanent brain damage.” The Cuban government denies any knowledge or involvement in the attacks. It was revealed on Monday that the most severely injured Americans were spies. If the Cuban government refuses to embassy staff, the State Department will formally expel the Cuban staff members. The attacks and now the decision to ask Cuba to reduce its embassy staff will cause relations between the two countries to become strained.

Flight Attendant Sues Southwest Airlines and Union for Discrimination http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8802-Flight-Attendant-Sues-Southwest-Airlines-and-Union-for-Discrimination A flight attendant with Southwest Airlines believes she was fired from her job with the airline because she criticized the union and spoke about her Christian faith. Charlene Carter filed suit against the union and the airline company in federal court. The suite claims that her firing was in retaliation over her effort “to stop paying ‘compelled fees for it political, ideological, and other non bargaining spending, and to engage in other speech and activity in opposition to Local 556.’” Carter took to Facebook to oppose using union dues “to fly two dozen officials and flight attendants to attend January’s Women’s March protest.” Carter sent various messages to the union president Audrey Stone that supported right-to-work legislation, a decertification campaign, and links to a video showing an abortion. Southwest Airlines fired Carter citing her abortion related posts as being “highly offensive in nature” and her Facebook messages to Audrey Stone as “harassing and inappropriate.” Carter argues that her criticisms of Stone are protected speech because “they were directly related to labor activities.”

CBS Executive Fired http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8801-CBS-Executive-Fired An executive with CBS was fired after she went on Facebook and expressed that she was not at all sympathetic towards the shooting victims in Las Vegas. Hayley Geftman-Gold’s wrote, “I’m actually not even sympathetic [because] country music fans often are Republican gun toters.” She continued, “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing.” This came just hours after 59 people were murdered and 520 people were injured in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. The post was picked up in Twitter and went viral. CBS announced the firing saying, “This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS.” "Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”

Gun Control Push http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8800-Gun-Control-Push Gun control advocates jumped all over the Las Vegas shooting to push for restrictions on the Second Amendment. Tom Brokaw and Senator Elizabeth Warren called for a national “conversation about how to stop gun violence.” Hillary Clinton and the former New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton used the Las Vegas murders to take issue with a bill before Congress that would allow for the sale of silencers. “So, imagine if this individual had a silencer on the end of some of these weapons, you would not have even known this was happening,” said Bratton. The police commissioner takes at face value the Hollywood portrayal of silencers. It’s inaccurate. Silencers do not silence gunfire. Instead “they simply reduce the level of sound emitted when a gun is fired.” A shot fired from a Remington 700 LTR “produces a sound that reaches approximately 167 decibels.” After attaching a silencer, the rifle produces a sound that reaches 133 decibels. By way of comparison, “a nearby thunderclap reaches 120 decibels, while a jackhammer reaches 110 decibels.”

It has continued and now a group of volunteers who were trying to take supplies to areas outside of Mexico City was robbed by gunmen who raped one of the female volunteers, shot another male, and severely beat others.

The aid group has said that they could not get local authorities to provide them with any security for the trip. This is not the first such incident and it is even being reported that some aid convoys from the United States have even been robbed by members of the Mexican military. This has caused much of the private aid to dry up.

In the past week Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents made almost 500 arrests during “Operation Safe City”. Targets included Cook, County, Illinois where Chicago is located, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Oregon, and Washington D.C.

Among those arrested were convicted felons charged with crimes such as child abuse, sexual assault, multiple DUIs, robbery, and even known violent gang members who were all being protected by politicians who care more about them then the citizens of their own cities.

It was openly blatant in its support for Hillary Clinton’s run for president and the cast was visibly upset when the American people refused to elect their “anointed” one.

There attacks on Trump have continued after his election, but this past Saturday night they hit a new low even for SNL. Ultra-Hollywood elitist Alec Baldwin used the human tragedy in Puerto Rico to take cheap shots against Trump and another cast member Michael Che used a racial slur against the President calling him a “cheap cracker.” It seems that it is OK to use racial slurs on white men.

YouTube Targeting Conservative Groups http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8796-YouTube-Targeting-Conservative-Groups YouTube and its parent company Google are coming under increasing fire for targeting conservative groups for censorship. In the case of Google it consists of basically moving conservative groups from its search engine entirely or moving them to obscure places where they are difficult to find. In the case of YouTube they are demonetizing certain videos that it deems politically incorrect. This essentially means that the entities cannot collect advertising revenue for ads sponsoring their videos. The companies claim they are protecting people from “hate” speech, but many groups or individuals are apparently being targeted because they committed such transgressions as supporting President Trump and his agenda.

He managed to stay out of jail for a while, but then was arrested for armed robbery and kidnapping in La Vegas. He was found guilty and spent nine years in jail.

Now he is free on parole and is already seeking to cash in on his criminal past. It is reported that he has hired an agent to negotiate interviews with major networks for an asking price between $3 million and $5 million. This is disgusting for many people, but O.J. seems determined to prove that crime does pay.

On some teams like Tennessee and the Los Angeles Rams only a single player registered a protest.

In the case of the Dallas Cowboys the entire team stood respectfully at attention during the anthem, as is required by the NFL rules. Players were reminded of that rule by the NFL this past week. However, angry fans still booed those who did protest.

Bench Violates Establishment Clause http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8790-Bench-Violates-Establishment-Clause A Virginia school district ordered a bible verse inscribed on a bench must be removed for violating the establishment clause. Somehow a bench with a Bible verse inscribed on it constitutes an establishment of state-sponsored religion. The bench memorializes a student who died in 2016 in an ATV accident. The back of the bench is inscribed with Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” The push to remove the bench comes after state officials thought it violated the Constitution and “were just trying to follow the law.” School Superintendent Nancy Leonard said, “We either have to remove the bench, or we have to cover the scripture or change that verse to something else that may represent the child.” The district is working with the family “to come up with an alternative quote that would replace the Bible verse. The school said it would cover the costs of changing the engraving on the bench.”

Law to Restrict President’s Ability to Fire Executive Appointments Under Consideration http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8789-Law-to-Restrict-President’s-Ability-to-Fire-Executive-Appointments-Under-Consideration Congress is considering legislation that would limit the ability of the president to fire a special counsel “who has been appointed to investigate high-ranking government officials.” If passed, the legislation could face significant judicial scrutiny. Under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, the president is empowered to make appointments. Some of those appointments are done with the advice and consent of the Senate. Others are appointed directly by the president or a cabinet secretary. It’s been understood that the president can fire any of his appointments so that he can replace them with someone else. Several Supreme Court decisions have upheld the executive brach’s power of appointment and of removal. The current attempt to restrict the president’s power comes after President Trump has publicly said that he would consider removing special counsel Mueller. If Congress ignore’s precedent and attempts to restrict the executive branch’s ability to remove appointments it may get slapped down by the court.

Supreme Court Choosing Cases for Next Term http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8788-Supreme-Court-Choosing-Cases-for-Next-Term The Supreme Court will decide several big cases this term. So far the Court has accepted 39 cases for review. One highlight of the coming term will be the Colorado Civil Rights Commission verses a Christian cake shop. The owner of the bakery declined to design a customer cake but agreed to sell the same sex couple an already made cake. The court will decide “whether forcing government employees to pay union fees that go to collective-bargaining arrangements violates their free-speech rights.” In a Fourth Amendment case, the court will decide if law enforcement needs a warrant to take cell phone tower data that monitors the location of individual cell phone users. Justices will look at how politics influences the drawing of legislative districts. It will decide if a “political gerrymander” “violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” During the opening week of the term, the court will accept several additional cases. In a normal term, the court will decide 70 to 80 cases. Possible additions to the court’s schedule include cases “involving public prayer, the Second Amendment, free speech in elections, and the reach of Congress’s power through environmental laws.”

Kasich’s latest move comes after Judge Roy Moore was nominated to represent the Republicans in a special election in December to fill the seat by Jeff Sessions. Kasich was asked what role the Republican Party should play in Roy Moore’s campaign. Kasich declined to support Moore’s claims on issues ranging from where Obama was born to whether Muslims should be allowed to serve in Congress. “I can tell you for me, I don’t support that. I couldn’t vote for that.” “I mean, those claims are — I mean, they’re ludicrous, and they’re divisive.” “If the party can’t be fixed . . . then I’m not going to be able to support the party, period, that’s the end of it.” Until Kasich decides to leave the GOP, he’s planning to to try to fix the party. “But I not only want the party to be straightened out I want the country to be straightened out.” Kasich’s threat to leave the Republican Party were welcomed by conservative commenters. “[Kasich] is a fraud, a RINO just pretending to hold conservative ideals.” “He’ll save us the trouble of primarying him. I wish all the RINOs would come out of the bushes like this.”

Attorney Sidney Powell said that Andrew Weissmann, one of Mueller’s prosecutors, “will want to maximize the trauma to [Manafort’s] family.” “I would bet the indictment will be right before Thanksgiving.” Weissman has put additional pressure on Manafort by calling Manafort’s former attorney and spokesman to testify before the grand jury. According to Powell, if Manafort does not cooperate, “they’ll indict him for many more counts, which will ratchet up his cost of defense significantly, and he’ll be looking at a lifetime in prison.” People close to Manafort think that the Russia collusion investigation has become cold and that Mueller’s goal is to turn Manafort into a prosecution witness. Nothing incriminating has been found on Manafort’s computers or documents after they were seized in a July raid. Manafort’s unpaid legal bills currently stand at $3 million. A trial would potentially cost millions and make a plea deal more attractive.

Trump Undercuts His Secretary of State http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8785-Trump-Undercuts-His-Secretary-of-State Secretary of State Tillerson is using back channel communications to speak directly with the North Koreans. Tillerson is seeking to negotiate with the North Koreans to release Americans being held captive in the country. The Secretary said, “We have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang.” Rather than sending one unified message to North Korea however, President Trump waded into the crisis and undermined the efforts of Tillerson when launched a volley of tweets about American diplomatic efforts with North Korea. “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man...” “…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.” North Korea has been seeking to set up meetings with Republican analysts to try to better understand the confusing rhetoric coming from the president.

Democrats plan to hammer Republicans over Obamacare in the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8784-Democrats-plan-to-hammer-Republicans-over-Obamacare-in-the-upcoming-2018-mid-term-elections Even though Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare, Democrats believe Republicans did enough damage to themselves that Republicans will sink in the polls. Tyler Law, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said, “I think the message is really simple here: As long as Republicans control Congress, your health care is on the chopping block.” Democrats are planning to argue that if voters keep Republicans in power, millions will be at risk of losing their healthcare. “Every one of our targets in the midterms — every single vulnerable Republican — voters know that their health care is less safe if that person is re-elected. And that is an incredibly strong message that we will carry through the midterm elections,” said Tyler Law. One Republican strategist was not too worried saying, “To me, it’s like everyone has ammo in this fight.” Republicans plan to point out that Obamacare is failing and that Democrats want a single payer program that will cost trillions of dollars. 23 Senate Democrats are defending seats and an additional two independent senators who caucus with the Democrats. Only eight Republicans are defending their seats.

Senator Disputes That Trump is Accelerating Conflict with North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8783-Senator-Disputes-That-Trump-is-Accelerating-Conflict-with-North-Korea Senator Joni Ernst disputed the idea that President Trump’s “threat to decimate North Korea has impacted Kim’s desire to achieve a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States.” "I don't see that his words have worsened the situation at all. If anything, it has put North Korea on alert that if they keep moving ahead with their intentions of putting a nuclear warhead onto an ICBM, that if they should use that technology, then we're going to go after them," said Ernst. She pointed out that North Korea had been on a path to obtain nuclear weapons for a long time before President Trump became president. President Trump promised that he would “totally destroy” North Korea if the United States has to defend one or more of its allies from a North Korean attack. In response, Kim Jong Un called the president “mentally deranged.” The United States has sanctioned banks that do business with North Korea. The new round of sanctions comes as the president seeks to isolate North Korea from the international banking system.

Democrats Silent on Whether Menendez Should Resign If Convicted http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8782-Democrats-Silent-on-Whether-Menendez-Should-Resign-If-Convicted Senator Bernie Sanders was not willing to say whether or not New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez should resign if he is convicted of corruption charges. Menendez is charged with 12 counts of corruption and bribery. A recent poll found 84 percent of New Jersey residents wanting Menendez to resign if he’s found guilty. Instead of saying that Menendez should resign, Senator Sanders said, "I think in this country, people are entitled to due process. I'm not into speculating what if that will be Menendez' decision. He has not been convicted. Let the process take its course." "In America, that's what it's about. You have a trial and people — the jury makes its decision. They have not made their decision, so I think it's a little bit premature to be talking about that." Many other Democrats in the Senate who have accepted cash from Menendez have declined to say that Menendez should resign if convicted. Menendez may have done “official favors” for one of is donors “in exchange for private jet flights, vacations, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions.”

Spain’s Government Injures Hundreds In Effort To Suppress Independence Vote http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8781-Spain’s-Government-Injures-Hundreds-In-Effort-To-Suppress-Independence-Vote The Catalonia independence movement attempted to vote for independence on Sunday. An independent Catalonia is anathema to Spain’s central government. It sent in the military to close polling stations and drive away voters from the polls. Police shot rubber bullets at crowds of unarmed voters. At least 800 people were injured in conflicts with government agents. Catalonia is the most prosperous region in Spain. The region is responsible for 19 percent of the country’s GDP and 25 percent of its exports. Many voters in the Catalan region believe the amount they receive back from the government is far less than what they are paying to the central government. Sunday evening, “Catalonia’s regional government declared a landslide win for the ‘yes’ side.” A spokesman for the Catalan government said that 90 percent of voters, voted for independence from Spain. It’s expected that the Spanish government will ignore the results.

EU Plotting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8780-EU-Plotting Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s Macron plan an “intense” drive to more deeply integrate the European Union after Brexit. Macron called upon the EU to “work more closely on defense and migration and for a eurozone budget.” Macron said that there is “a common realization of a need for a leap forward in Europe.” “Today we’re all convinced Europe must move ahead faster and stronger, for more sovereignty, more unity, and more democracy.” Angela Merkel said that the European Union must “continue to develop.” The call for deeper integration comes during a time of “growing Euroscepticism and nationalism and falling trust in globalized institutions.” Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic have all resisted calls to take migrants. These countries have not seen the spike in crime that has occurred in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and Belgium. The countries are being threatened by EU legal action as well as fines if they don’t comply.

Swiss Move to Restrict Islam http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8779-Swiss-Move-to-Restrict-Islam Switzerland may ban the foreign funding of mosques and require that mosques use local languages instead of Arabic or other foreign languages. The accepted languages would be German, French, Italian, or Romansch. The legislation was passed by the Swiss National Council by a narrow majority. The law will now go to the Swiss Senate. The Swiss federal government opposes the legislation saying that it “discriminates against Muslims by placing them under suspicion and fuels extremism.” Likewise, the federal government opposes the the use of local languages, instead calling for “freedom of language.” The law is modeled after a similar law in Austria that sought to “encourage a distinctly ‘European Islam.’” The Austrian law sought to “deter radicalization and foreign influence on the nation’s Muslims.” The spread of Islam to the West has been funded by Saudi Arabia. It has funded a perniciously radical form called Wahhabism.

White House Reviews China Policy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8778-White-House-Reviews-China-Policy The White House will begin a comprehensive review of policy on China. The goal of the review is to “clearly outline U.S. goals, ensure all U.S. policies are designed to achieve those goals, and get everyone in the Administration on the same page.” The review was first proposed in June. It will also take “full account of China’s economic and strategic ambitions, and provide a vast range of policy options . . . .” The review may be completed later this fall before President Trump is scheduled to visit China in November. Creating a comprehensive policy is complicated. China is rich and has ambitious goals around the world especially in the area of trade and commerce. The administration has people with divergent views on China. The president is an outspoken critic while Secretary of State Tillerson wants a less confrontational approach to China. China hawks believe that China uses the North Korea situation to extract long-term concessions from the United States in exchange for short-term policy changes with Pyongyang.

Unions vs. Free Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8777-Unions-vs.-Free-Speech In its pre-Term conference, justices began reviewing the petitions that have stacked up during the Court’s recess. The Supreme Court will determine whether or not “forced union dues from public-sector unions to pay for political activity . . . violate the First Amendment.” The Supreme Court appears to be ready to reconsider an earlier decision from 1977, Abood v. Detroit Board of Education. In the earlier case the Supreme Court allowed “forcing union members to pay for political speech they disagree with. Union dues that pay for political activity “almost always support liberal political candidates and priorities.” The Abood decision might have been overturned in 2015, however, Justice Scalia died before the decision could be issued. The case was tied 4-4 and dismissed. Now with nine justices, the Supreme Court may overturn Abood. Justice Gorsuch is thought to be a justice who will find that using union dues for political speech violates members First Amendment rights.

Several other officials in the administration are facing scrutiny of their use of government aircraft. The Director of Management and Budget issued a letter saying, “Every penny we spend comes from the taxpayer. We thus owe it to the taxpayer to work as hard managing that money wisely as the taxpayer must do to earn it in the first place.” The OMB director said, [W]ith few exceptions, the commercial air system used by millions of Americans every day is appropriate, even for very senior officials.” Democrats in Congress have called for administration officials to resign for their use of government aircraft. However, they have been silent about Senator Robert Menendez’s use of private aircraft in exchange for contributions from one of of his financial backers.

Bank Teller Rips Off Homeless Man http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8775-Bank-Teller-Rips-Off-Homeless-Man A Wells Fargo bank teller in Washington D.C. may have picked up some bad ideas from the nation’s politicians. The employee stole $185,000 from a homeless customer who tried to deposit the cash into his accounts with the bank. The homeless man was keeping the money in a garbage bag. He tried to deposit the money but was turned away because he did not have “the identification documents he needed to deposit the . . . cash . . . .” The bank teller “was accused of forging the customer’s signature to fraudulently open a Wells Fargo account in the customer’s name . . . .” “He funded the account with $3,000 of the homeless customer’s money.” The homeless man had no knowledge of the fraudulent activity. The teller spent the money over a two year period on vacations, debt repayment, and as a down payment on a house.

Trump Defends Hurricane Maria Response http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8774-Trump-Defends-Hurricane-Maria-Response The Trump administration has come under fire for its poor reaction to the hurricane in Puerto Rico. Food and emergency supplies have had difficulty in making it to the island. The president blamed the ocean. “This is an island surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water. We are closely coordinated with the territorial and local governments which are totally and unfortunately unable to handle this catastrophic crisis on their own.” Puerto Rico’s residents are “without access to food, water, health services, and electricity.” Mayor Carmen Cruz of San Juan said, “We are dying here. And I cannot fathom the though that the greatest nation i the world cannot figure out logistics for a small island . . . .“ The mayor warned that if help did not arrive soon, “what we are going to see is something close to a genocide.” President Trump pointed out the difficulties of providing aid to the island because of its damaged infrastructure and poor communications. On Thursday the president waived the Jones Act for ten days. Under the waiver, it will allow “foreign ships to deliver aid to the island without first traveling to the U.S. to transfer their cargo to an American ship.”

Alaska Energy Production Rebound http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8773-Alaska-Energy-Production-Rebound The Interior Secretary believes that increasing oil production in Alaska will “be a major part of the Trump administration’s plan for U.S. ‘energy dominance.’” “The road to energy dominance goes through the great state of Alaska,” said Secretary Since. Recently the Interior Department sold offshore drilling rights in Alaska for $3 million. With increased production, Alaska could rebound as a major oil producer. The National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A) is estimated to hold 895 million barrels of oil and 52.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. In 2016 an oil field was found “on Alaska’s norther coast. It is estimated to hold as much as 6 billion barrels of oil. Congress opened the the NPR-A to oil and gas production, but the Obama administration designated 22.8 million acres as off-limits to drilling. The Trans-Alaska Pipeline would stand to benefit from increased oil production. Its capacity has fallen 39 percent over the last decade. If production does not increase, the pipeline could be closed as early as 2026. http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/29/alaska-will-be-t...

Robert MacQueen blew the whistle on a poorly run Ponzi scheme investigation where the assets of a company were seized prior to any victims being identified. According to the IG’s report, Secret Service managers fabricated charges against MacQueen because he spoke out against the mismanagement. He was offered “fast-track” “disability retirement in return for dropping his complaints even though he is able-bodied and never sought any type of disability compensation.” “Knowingly helping to defraud the government by offering to help file a false disability claim is . . . a felony.” The Secret Service is reviewing the IG’s report to determine its next course of action. According to the report, this is the first time that it had verified an “instance of retaliation” “related to an agency wrongfully overturning or suspending an employee’s security clearance” under a directive protecting whistleblowers.

HHS Secretary Strikes Out http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8771-HHS-Secretary-Strikes-Out Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price offered his resignation to the president on Friday. The president accepted. Price was in hot water after it was revealed that he was using private charter flights to travel the country in his official capacity as a department secretary. Estimates of his flights cost anywhere from $300,000 to $1 million. On Thursday, Price sought to appease the wrath of bad publicity that was descending upon him by writing a check for $51,000 for the cost of his seat on the jets. The money did not cover the actual cost of the flights. It was said that President Trump was “mad as hell” after it came to light that Price was flying charter flights. The private flights made the president look foolish. Looking foolish is one thing the president won’t abide. Up next on the hot seat is Scott Pruitt of the Environmental Protection Agency who has spent a reported $58,000 on government travel.

In only the second quarter under the presidency of Donald Trump the GDP exceeded expectations by growing to 3.1% .The growth is being credited to several factors, including robust consumer spending and a continued climb in employment.

The third quarter is not expected to be as strong due to the massive hurricane damage, but should rebound seriously in the fourth quarter when the rebuilding efforts in states like Texas and Florida are going strong.

Pro-Life Leaders Calls On McConnell to Resign http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8763-Pro-Life-Leaders-Calls-On-McConnell-to-Resign A pro-life leader is calling upon Mitch McConnell to resign as Majority Leader. “This repeated incapacity to get the job done is completely unacceptable. I call on Mitch McConnell to resign from his position as Senate Majority Leader because of this leadership failure,” said Troy Newman of Operation Rescue. Republicans have been unable to get even fifty votes together to pass any reform of healthcare. But Planned Parenthood continues to be funded. “This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it,” said Newman. While campaigning, candidate Trump promised pro-lifers that he would defund Planned Parenthood and redirect the funds towards other community health centers. Newman called for McConnell’s replacement to be someone who can “unite the party and fulfill Trump’s agenda.” Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America called the continue funding of Planned Parenthood to be “appalling.” “This is why many in the pro-life community and pro-life generation are weary of trusting the Republican Party in particular and office holders in general.” “Too often, the promises made on the campaign trail are broken when a real opportunity to act is presented. It is time that the Republican Party demands a pro-life litmus test to make their actions match their words and their platform.

Trial in the Murder of Kim Jong-Nam http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8762-Trial-in-the-Murder-of-Kim-Jong-Nam Two women will go on trial next week for the murder of Kim Jong-Nam, the brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The two women are accused of “rubbing toxic VX nerve agent in his face” while he was waiting for a plane at the Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia. Within 20 minutes of the attack, Kim Jong-Nam died. VX nerve agent attacks the central nervous system of the body. It is considered to be a weapon of mass destruction. But if it was VX Nerve agent, why weren’t the two women who did the attack affected by the VX? There were no serious injuries for first responders or other people in the airport. The two women say they believed they were taking part in a “prank for a reality TV show.” Defense attorneys believe that the real culprits behind the murder left the country. South Korea believes that North Korea’s leader is behind the murder of his brother. Kim Jong-Nam “had voiced criticism of the regime after falling from grace and going to live in exile overseas.” Malaysia and North Korea both expelled “each other’s ambassadors” immediately after the murder. Tensions eased after Malaysia returned Kim’s body” to North Korea.

Kushner believe that “strange’s victory would ‘enrage Steve Bannon’” according to a report by the Huffington Post. Part of the decision to back Strange may have come because Kushner may need Republicans in Congress to support him if “things go south in the Russia investigation.” The last days of the campaign saw the president speaking at a rally for Luther Strange, while Steve Bannon campaigned for Judge Moore. Judge Roy Moore won by ten points in a primary contest with incumbent Senator Luther Strange. By endorsing Strange, the president ended up on the same side as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is intensely disliked by the president’s base of supporters. Presidents rarely endorse in primaries. The endorsement of Strange pitted the president against his base of loyal supporters. Former Trump adviser, Sam Nunberg, said, “Anyone with a pulse knew that Luther was going to lose the runoff. Luther barely survived the primary.”

The waiver will last ten days. Under the Jones Act, only American made and operated ships may move cargo between U.S. ports. Smarter members of Congress recognize that the Jones Act impedes commerce, and that it makes it more expensive to ship products. In fact, San Juan Mayor Carmen Cruz said that the waiver “could help bring down the cost of supplies and construction materials by nearly 33 percent.” Yet members of Congress are pushing to extend the waiver for a mere year. Why not repeal the act altogether? President Trump waived the Jones Act for two weeks after the hurricanes in Texas and Florida. The president put a three star general in charge of relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Currently there is little electricity on the island. Officials estimate that it could take six months to restore power.

Steve Scalise Returns to Congress http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8759-Steve-Scalise-Returns-to-Congress Representative Steve Scalise returned to the House of Representatives. He was welcomed back to a chamber overflowing with members. “You have no idea how great this feels to be back here at work in the people’s house,” he said. He went on to say that the shooting had strengthened his faith in God. As he lay immobile on the field, Scales said that the first thing he did “was pray for God’s help.” “Pretty much every one of those prayers was answered, and there were pretty challenging prayers I was putting in God’s hands. It just gives you that renewed faith and understanding that the power of prayer is something you just cannot underestimate.” “I got to see that goodness in people, and so while some people might focus on a tragic event and an evil act, to me, all I’ll remember are the thousands of acts and kindness and love that came out of this.” He urged his colleagues “not to make things personal while waging their political battles.” And he recognized that his Democratic colleague from Louisiana “was one of the first people to come to the hospital the day of the attack.” "It really does show the warm side of Congress that very few people get to see. I want to thank each and everyone of you for that."

HHS Secretary Apologizes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8758-HHS-Secretary-Apologizes Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price “apologized for flying on private planes for government and personal business and pledge to reimburse taxpayers for the cost of the flights.” The Inspector General’s office is probing Price’s use of a private plane. The Secretary said that he would continue to cooperate. He said, “All my political career I’ve fought for the taxpayers. It is clear to me that in this case, I was not sensitive enough to my concern for the taxpayers. He went on to say that he would not take any more trips on private flights while head of HHS. He added that he would immediately write a check for the full cost and reimburse the U.S. Treasury. “The taxpayers won’t pay a dime for my seat on those planes.” The cost of the private plane was in excess of $300,000. On one trip he flew in early and stopped over at St. Simon’s Island resort in Georgia before addressing a medical conference. Earlier in the week, President Trump said that he was “not happy” about the private travel. He hinted that he might be willing to fire Price.

Court of Appeals Denies Full Court Hearing on Concealed Carry http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8757-Court-of-Appeals-Denies-Full-Court-Hearing-on-Concealed-Carry The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC circuit denied a petition to for an en banc hearing after an a three judge panel found the district’s gun-carry law unconstitutional. The DC law allows officials “to deny a permit application based on whether they believe the applicant has a ‘good reason’ for obtaining one.” The three judge panel ruled in July that DC’s “good-reason laws seem almost uniquely designed to defy it: that the law-abiding citizen’s right to bear common arms must enable the typical citizen to carry a gun. No judge on the full court of appeals requested to hear the case. As a result, the decision stands. The city must now decide whether or not to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The city issued a statement sardine that it was “disappointed by the full D.C. Circuit’s decision not to rehear the case.” The National Rifle Association applauded the Court of Appeals decision to allow “law-abiding citizens to carry firearms to protect themselves and their families in the District of Columbia.

U.S. Pulling Embassy Staff Out of Cuba http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8756--U.S.-Pulling-Embassy-Staff-Out-of-Cuba The United States will withdraw a large number of embassy staff and family members from the Cuban embassy. It comes in response to the injuries that several staff members have experienced while on the island. Earlier in the week, Secretary of State Tillerson met with Cuba’s Foreign Minister to discuss the situation. The Cubans “did nothing to help assure the U.S. that Cuban officials are doing enough to protect the safety and welfare of UlS. diplomats in their country.” American investigators are being permitted into Cuba so as to investigate. Cuba officially denied that it had anything to do with the attacks. "The Cuban government has never perpetrated nor will it ever perpetrate attacks of any kind against diplomats. The Cuban government has never permitted nor will it ever permit the use of its territory by third parties for this purpose." Those diplomats affected by the sonic attacks complained about “hearing loss,” “headaches,” “nausea,” and problems balancing. 21 people are known to have been affected.

French Flee Wealth Tax http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8755-French-Flee-Wealth-Tax Bernie Sanders has long expressed his desire to see a wealth tax imposed on rich Americans. He recently proposed a wealth tax to fund his single-payer healthcare scam. Senator Sanders might want to look at how the wealth tax hurt France and its economy. Over the last 15 years, 10,000 people with about 35 billion euros in capital have left France to go live abroad. Businesses are not created. People are not hired. In France, the wealth tax “applies to personal assets of more than 1.3 million euros. France is working to change the tax so that it will “only apply to real estate.” Other forms of wealth would be exempted beginning in 2018. Prime Minister Edward Philippe said, “When someone leaves the country because of the wealth tax. . . collectively all French lose.” ‘And changing that’ “is something I’ll defend.”

Snowflakes Frightened by Beach Ball http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8754-Snowflakes-Frightened-by-Beach-Ball A group of conservative students at Southern Illinois University were using a beach ball as part of a free speech exercise. The students would write a message on a beach ball and toss it to another student on the quad who in turn would repeat the process. This was so disturbing to several students that they called campus police “to express their concern” and fright. “It’s the ball that’s creating…people are scared of the beach ball?” one person asked the police. “Yeah, people are reporting that they’re scared of the beach ball, and what’s going on here,” answered the officer. The officers told the offending students that the quad was not a public space. “Right now, we’re going to have to put the ball away. It’s freaking a lot of people out. Student are calling in because they’re scared.” The officers denied that they were infringing on the student’s First Amendment rights. According to a director of University Marketing and Communications, the offending students were violating the university’s policy “governing freedom of expression and demonstration activities.”

Army Investigating Communist West Point Graduate http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8753-Army-Investigating-Communist-West-Point-Graduate 2nd Lieutenant Spenser Rapone is a West Point graduate currently serving in the U.S. Army and he is also a communist. He has sent out several tweets this week showing him in his West Point cadet uniform prior to graduation. In one he shows the inside of his hat where the words,” communism will win”. In another picture he opens his uniform to show a T-shirt featuring communist terrorist Che Guevara.

He also expessed his support for Colin Kaepernick who is a big fan of Guevara. Rapone is under investigation by the army, and one thing they have to look at is how he passed the rigorous background check required to even get into the prestigious military academy.

Fox News Continues to Dominate News Ratings http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8752-Fox-News-Continues-to-Dominate-News-Ratings For the sixty-third quarter in a row FOX News is the highest rated cable news network, despite some recent changes in its schedules and some people leaving the network. CNN continues to struggle to get and keep viewers as does MSNBC. The one bright spot for the later seemed to be Rachel Maddow, the liberal commentator whose show was overall number one for her time slot.

However, that ended abruptly when FOX moved Sean Hannity’s show into the same time slot as Maddow. In their first head to head confrontation Hannity had over one million more viewers than Maddow, so it appears her short reign has ended.

James Mattis Targeted by Taliban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8751-James-Mattis-Targeted-by-Taliban A major Taliban rocket attack on the Kabul airport yesterday was obviously meant to target Secretary of Defense James Mattis. The secretary had arrived at the airport shortly before the attack, and was already at meetings in the city. The attack consisted of at least 40 rockets being fired at the airport over a five hour period. One person was killed and eleven were injured. The attack was finally broken up by special operations troops who killed three of the attackers and were securing the area.

The Taliban took credit for the attack and said it was aimed at the secretary. This is a matter of great concern to the American and Afghan government and military since only a hand full of people were supposed to know of the Mattis visit. There was a massive breach of security somewhere.

Illegals Costing America Billions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8750-Illegals-Costing-America-Billions Despite the fact that illegal border crossings have dropped significantly under the Presidency of Donald Trump American taxpayers are still footing a multi-billion dollar bill for the care of these people who are here because they have broken federal law. The cost is now $135 billion per year including medical care, education, and enormous law enforcement costs.

$88 billon of this is being paid for by the taxpayers in sanctuary states like California, Illinois, and New York just to name a few. The advocates for these illegals say that they pay taxes that cover much of these costs. However, studies show that the taxes paid by illegals amount to only about $19 billion leaving $116 billion to be picked up by taxpayers.

Democrats Come Out in Favor of High Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8749-Democrats-Come-Out-in-Favor-of-High-Taxes The minority leader in the U. S. Senate, Chuck Schumer (D NY) was quick to come out and oppose the Republican tax reduction plan. He made the usual arguments that the plan only reduces taxes on the rich, and doesn’t help the middle class despite that under the plan some of the richest Americans will actually pay more taxes.

However, he did come out with rather bizarre argument even for him. He said the plan would greatly increase the deficit. Republicans and conservative pundits were quick to point out that this is a man who supported President Obama’s every move that resulted in the doubling of the deficit in just his two terms in office. Schumer’s Democrats have always supported high taxes.

These include dramatically lowering the corporate tax rate, lowering personal income taxes for millions of Americans, and simplifying the thousands of complicated pages of the tax code to make it easier, and far less expensive for businesses to file their taxes.

A win on this issue is critical for Trump and the Republican Party and there is not a lot of time to get this done.

One YouTube video of a Marine Corps veteran burning his Baltimore Ravens tickers has gone viral as have similar videos.

In Colorado a veteran who is now a former Denver Broncos fan gathered up over fifty years of Bronco memorabilia that he has collected and donated it to charity because he was disgusted with Bronco players kneeling during the national anthem and disrespecting America.

Now they are engaging in their form of crowd control once again when it comes to the national anthem protests by NFL players. The networks are showing the kneeling players, but not the angry reactions of thousands of fans in the stands that were infuriated over the disrespect being shown to their country.

After Caving On DACA, President Worries He’s Endangered http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8745-After-Caving-On-DACA,-President-Worries-He’s-Endangered The New York Times is reporting that President Trump is “deeply worried” that his support of “permanent amnesty to illegal aliens . . . ‘endangers’ his standing with his populist-nationalist base of supporters.” The president has come around to believing that his meeting with Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and agreement on “giving amnesty to . . . . 800,000 illegal aliens” has “put him at odds with his base.” Democrats and Republicans are scrambling in Congress to create an amnesty bill that would “give a pathway to U.S. citizenship for 3.3 million illegal aliens.” During the campaign, candidate Trump promised that there would be no amnesty and that he would deport people in the country illegally. The Trump base voted for him on that promise. If he signs legislation allowing the so called Dreamers to stay, the president will be viewed as having broken his main campaign promise. Staff members that embodied the message of the base have been let go from the White House. The president has surrounded himself with liberal Democrats who don’t see issues in the same light as he campaigned on them.

California’s Great Leap “Forward” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8744-California’s-Great-Leap-“Forward” California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown returned from visiting China recently. He carried with him an idea that would revolutionize the state. The governor wants to copy China and ban the “internal combustion engine in automobiles.” Mary Nichols, chairman of the California Air Resources Board said, “I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’ The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.” Nichols said that for California to meet the ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, “we have to pretty much replace all combustion with some form of renewable energy by 2040 or 2050. We’re looking at that as a method of moving this discussion forward.” California has one of the largest car markets in the entire care industry. “Over 2 million new passenger vehicles were sold and registered in the nation’s most populous state” in 2016. To force the internal combustion engine out of the state, bureaucrats are looking at methods of coercion to get the desired outcome. One consideration is to regulate “the types of cars that can be registered in the state or have access to highways.”

Mystery Democrats Complain About Paying Higher Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8743-Mystery-Democrats-Complain-About-Paying-Higher-Taxes Under the Republican’s proposed tax plan, state and local taxes would no longer be deductible on people’s federal income tax returns. Under the current tax code, Californians deprived the federal government of money to the tune of $101 billion in 2014. New Yorkers deprived Washington D.C of money to the tune of $68 million. Astonishingly, after the tax plan was rolled out, California Democratic politicians immediately complained about having to send more money to Washington D.C. “Republicans in Washington have once again zeroed in on California to punish us and make our state the single biggest loser in their reckless tax scheme,” said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León. Senator Feinstein said the elimination of the deduction was a “non-starter.” New York’s Governor Cuomo called the idea a “death blow” for New Yorkers. The truly puzzling thing is that Democrats and Liberals love higher taxes. They always complain about the rich not paying their fair share. So why no excitement at the prospect of paying more money to the federal government?

Government Always Wants Its Money http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8742-Government-Always-Wants-Its-Money A food truck operator in Green Cove Springs, Florida was told to stop selling BBQ to hurricane Irma victims because the owner was “operating without a permit.” Even though 90 percent of the city’s power grid lay in ruins, and hot meals were difficult to find, the city manager found that feeding people without the local government’s permission was the most pressing issue at that moment. One resident who saw two police officers issue the cease and desist order posted, “this is such a great little town, but it seems like the people who run it do their best to keep it from progressing.” Mayor Mitch Timerlake said that if the owner of the food truck had requested the proper government credentialing, “he would have been allowed to serve utility workers around the city.” “He is a commercial food truck operator, and he knows the local ordinances for food truck operation and had a responsibility to reach to the city to get a permit for what he wanted to do. We don’t prohibit food trucks. There are times and places where we welcome them.” The mayor did not say how long the permitting process would have taken. Or if it might have been affected because the power was out.

Last week, the Trump administration barred “Venezuelan officials from entering the nation.” The president also said that he would do everything he could to help the Venezuelan people to get their country back. Maduro said, ”We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace.” He continued, "We need to have rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready....to defend every inch of the territory if needs be.” Venezuela’s people are starving because the government controls everything. Farmers cannot make a sufficient profit to be able to stay in business and make money. So they do not produce. Critics of Maduro’s government have begun to talk about a possible coup. Venezuela has experienced three attempted coups since 1992.

Navy Rushing to Implement Changes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8740-Navy-Rushing-to-Implement-Changes The U.S. Navy is rushing to remedy the mishaps that have led to the deaths of 17 sailors. The Navy chose to ignore the buildup of problems that lead to two deadly collisions in crowded waters. At least on paper, sailors will get more sleep and fewer work hours. Navy ships will now “broadcast their positions as to other vessels.” Ships, whose crews lack certification for basic seamanship, will remain in port until crews are brought up to basic standards. Navy officials have long known about the issues, but chose to do nothing. Admiral Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations, had no explanation for the lack of preparedness when he appeared before the Senates Armed Services Committee. Commanders are going so far as to require the use of compasses, pencils, and paper “to help track potential hazards.” The increased deployments and a smaller Navy have left “little time to train and maintain ships amid their relentless duties.” One possible way for the Navy to find time to train would be to end politically correct celebrations such as LGBT Pride Month.

Nobody pats you down,” Winner told agents. Her social media sites show that she was a supporter of Bernie Sanders “and various left-wing causes.” She told FBI investigators “she believed the NSA was sitting on evidence of Russian meddling in the presidential campaign” and could not believe that the document was being withheld from the public domain.

New Executive Orders Coming On Health Care http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8738-New-Executive-Orders-Coming-On-Health-Care President Trump may issue an executive order that would affect how healthcare is made available to Americans. The proposed order would allow health insurance to be purchased across state lines. The president called his order “very major,” “where people can go out across state lines, do lots of things, and buy their own health care.” According to the president the order will “cover a lot of territory and a lot of people — millions of people.” The idea behind the executive order is to make the insurance market “more competitive by eliminating the barriers associated with state insurance regulation. Insurers would be able to offer national plans with lower administrative costs.” Another order the president is considering is to allow associations to sell group health insurance. Private societies, civic organizations, farm bureaus etc., would be able to sell insurance to their members. Senator Rand Paul has been a champion of allowing individuals to form associations and through the associations, buy group insurance. It may be one way to address the pre-existing conditions trap that Republicans find themselves in every time they try to overturn Obamacare.

Administration Not Keen on Waiving Jones Act http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8737-Administration-Not-Keen-on-Waiving-Jones-Act The Jones Act is a 100 year-old law that “requires that cargo shipments between U.S. ports only take place on American-made and operated vessels.” The Trump administration so far has not issued a waiver for the Jones Act so aid can more easily get to Puerto Rico. By issuing a waiver, emergency supplies could get to the island more easily and cheaply. The Department of Homeland Security is “still considering whether to grant the waiver.” Democrats in the House put together legislation on Wednesday that would allow the Jones Act to be waived in cases of disaster and humanitarian relief. “This is a humanitarian crisis and Puerto Rico needs all the help it can get,” said Rep. Nydia Velázquez. Under the legislation, the Jones Act would be waived for up to a year. President Trump said, “We’re thinking about that, but we have a lot of shippers, a lot of people that work in the shipping industry that don’t want the Jones Act lifted. And we have a lot of ships out there right now.” In his private business, the president worked closely with unions. He courted the union vote in his campaign. Waiving the Jones Act would have political consequences for the president.

When the young American was returned home after being wrongly imprisoned in North Korea for a year, NBC News reported he appeared to be well nourished, but also that he was in a coma.

His parents said he was not in a coma, but was blind, deaf, and screaming in pain. They also reported there were numerous signs of torture including damage to his teeth and other parts of his body. He died a week after being returned home to Ohio. The parents have labeled North Korea as a terrorist state and want the U.S. government to label it as such.

This should be a clear signal to both Republican and Democrat leaders that the anger of the average American at the business as usual attitude of the people in power has not abated.

As the liberal media, the Hollywood elite, and the millionaire sports stars, continue to lecture Americans about how stupid they are and how they are all racists if they don’t support leftist polices, the Alabama race has shown that people are digging in their heels. If the Republicans fail to pass the promised tax reductions, it will only get worse.

Ohio Moves to Ban Eugenics Based Abortions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8733-Ohio-Moves-to-Ban-Eugenics-Based-Abortions In some countries like Iceland the government is proud of the fact that the disorder labeled Downs Syndrome has mostly been eliminated. This is true not because a cure has been found, but because the country highly encourages that unborn children found to have the disorder be aborted. Pro-abortion groups in the United States are pushing for the same thing, but states are already resisting.

North Dakota and Indiana have already passed legislation to prohibit this type of abortion targeting and now Ohio is considering similar legislation. Of course, pro-abortion groups like NARAL oppose the legislation. After all, their heroine is Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood in order to eliminate what she considered the “inferior” black race.

Texas Wins Second Round in Sanctuary City Case http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8732-Texas-Wins-Second-Round-in-Sanctuary-City-Case A three judge panel in the federal Fifth Circuit of Appeals has placed a temporary stay on an injunction issued by a lower federal court that stayed the State of Texas from punishing sanctuary cities in the state. This is a major victory and indicates the strong possibility that the law will be upheld. This would be in line with the Constitution and existing federal law that generally gives states the right to regulate the way it spends its own money.

Texas also argues that it can force municipalities and law enforcement agencies to obey both federal and state laws when it comes to enforcing immigration laws. Considering the fact that between 2008 and 2014 illegal aliens in the state of Texas committed over 600,000 crimes, including 3,000 murders the stare certainly has a compelling interest in enforcing immigration laws.

Republicans in Senate fail Again http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8731-Republicans-in-Senate-fail-Again For the second time in the last few months Republicans in the U.S. Senate have failed to come up with the 50 votes needed to repeal and replace Obamacare. The first time they managed to get enough votes to bring it to the floor of the Senate for debate and final passage. However, that failed when John McCain unexpectedly voted no on final passage.

The second attempt did not even make it through the procedural vote to get it to the floor. This time, not only did McCain and Susan Collins pledge to again vote against it; so did conservative Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. This forced Mitch McConnell to not even bring it up for a vote.

Trump Criticized for Response to Hurricane Maria http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8730-Trump-Criticized-for-Response-to-Hurricane-Maria Some in the liberal media and Democrats in congress are starting to criticize President Trump for what they claim is a poor response to the disaster caused in Puerto Rico by hurricanes Irma and Maria. They claim that he is spending too much time fighting with the NFL and ignoring the plight of the 3.4 million people on the island as well as the people in the devastated Virgin Islands.

Members of the administration claim that this is far from the truth. There are currently 10,000 federal employees on the island from FEMA and numerous other agencies, including the thinly spread military. Thousands of tons of food, water, medicine, and fuel have been delivered. The problem is that so much of the island is still flooded and so many infrastructures destroyed that getting the supplies to the most desperate areas is still impossible.

Veterans Taking on the NFL http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8729-Veterans-Taking-on-the-NFL Two Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts in Ohio have announced that they will no longer be broadcasting NFL games at their facilities. Many other posts are expected to follow suit. In addition, the national commanders of both the American Legion and the VFW had harsh criticism for the players who participate in the so called protests and the league itself.

They believe that it is disrespectful to the flag, the nation, and to military veterans and active duty military. The NFL as a whole, and many teams are already feeling the economic effects of the anger among veterans and the general public.

Deadline Approaches for Kennedy Assassination Document Dump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8728-Deadline-Approaches-for-Kennedy-Assassination-Document-Dump The government is required to release the remaining documents relating to the November 1963 assassination of President Kennedy. President Trump has until October 26 to decide. The remaining 3,000 documents are expected to shed new light onto the assassination. It is still possible that the FBI and CIA will ask that the president keep certain documents classified. “It’s long past the time to be forthcoming with this information,” said Larry Sabato with the University of Virginia Center for Politics. In July, the National Archives release 440 new documents relating to the assassination that had never been seen by the public. It also release thousands of other documents had been released but with redactions. Sabato believes that some records may have been destroyed prior to the 1992 law that ordered all related documents to be kept at the National Archives. Documents that probably won’t be released are those related to the tax affairs of Jack Ruby.

Venezuela Launches Into Tirade At UN http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8727-Venezuela-Launches-Into-Tirade-At-UN Venezuela’s foreign minister addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Monday. His speech turned into a tirade against President Trump. Jorge Arreaza called the American president a “World Emperor” who “used this forum constructed for peace to announce wars, the total destruction of member states, [and] the application of coercive, unilateral, and illegal measures, threatening and judging at his leisure, as if he had absolute dictatorial powers over the sovereign member states of our organization.” The foreign minister said that the president was “the worst violator of human rights, not just in its territory, but around the world.” President Trump said last week that he stood with the people of Venezuela. He pledged that he would assist them in regaining their freedoms and democracy. Venezuela’s socialist government has starved the people and has committed a “wide variety of human rights abuses including extreme police brutality and sex crimes against unarmed protesters.”

Women Will Be Allowed To Drive in Saudi Arabia http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8726-Women-Will-Be-Allowed-To-Drive-in-Saudi-Arabia Women in Saudi Arabia will be able to drive in June of 2018. The country’s king made the announcement on Tuesday. The previous Saudi king had promised that women would be allowed to drive, but he died before he could see it through. The country’s top Islamic cleric defended the ban on women driving in 2016. He claimed “that driving harms a woman’s ovaries and that the act will expose women ‘to evil.’” The relenting of rules allowing women to drive comes after other changes in Saudi society. In 2015, women were given the right to vote for the first time. Earlier this month, women were permitted into King Fahd sports stadium. “Men and women were allowed to sit and mix together in a public arena.” Saudi women’s rights activists have been pushing for the right to drive since at least 2011 when Manal Al-Sharif “was arrested and jailed for nine days after she defied the kingdom’s female driving ban and posted video of the moment online. Al-Sharif was charge with ‘driving while female.’”

Small Legal Case May Cost Coffee Industry http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8725--Small-Legal-Case-May-Cost-Coffee-Industry Sellers of coffee may have to post cancer warning signs in California depending upon the verdict in a little known class-action lawsuit. The case centers around acrylamide, “a carcinogen found in cooked foods such as French fries that is also a natural byproduct of the coffee roasting process.” The coffee industry is having to prove that acrylamide “is at harmless levels and is outweighed by benefits from drinking coffee.” Raphael Metzger, the attorney who is spearheading the complaint, says that his goal is to get the industry to remove the chemical. “I’m addicted — like two-thirds of the population. I would like the industry to get acrylamide out of the coffee so my addiction doesn’t force me to ingest it.” Several companies have paid substantial sums to settle complaints and are posting signs in their business locations. Defense attorneys in the class-action case are pinning their hopes on an exemption clause for “chemicals that result naturally form cooking necessary for palatability or to avoid microbiological contamination.”

Big GOP Changes Coming http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8724-Big-GOP-Changes-Coming Roy Moore’s win Tuesday may mean huge upheaval for Republican incumbents in 2018. While Republicans have a majority in Congress and have the White House, they have done nothing with their power. After eight months of being in full control of the government, Obamacare is still on the books, the border wall has not been built, and there are no tax cuts. Republicans ran for seven years promising to repeal Obamacare. The promise defined the GOP. However, they could not deliver the goods when it came down to actually repealing the former president’s signature legislation. The only thing Republicans and Democrats have united around is investigating the president and keeping him bogged down in a Russia investigation that has no basis in fact. The bi-partisanship continues with Republicans in full agreement that the country needs more immigrants and plans to legalize many who are in the country illegally. As votes were being counted in the Alabama race Tuesday night, Republican Senator Corker announced he would not run for re-election in 2018. He may see the peasants with pitchforks coming to clear the swamp.

Renegotiate Iran Deal, Says Lindsey Graham http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8723-Renegotiate-Iran-Deal,-Says-Lindsey-Graham Senator Lindsey Graham wants President Trump to re-negotiate the Iran Deal. Graham said that while Iran is technically complying with the agreement, the country is “violating the spirit of the pact through its continued destabilizing activities in the Middle East, such as supporting terrorist groups.” The senator said that one of the biggest mistakes of the deal was the disconnection between “the behavior of the regime and sanctions relief.” Graham said that he does not want the president to “abandon the nuclear part of [the agreement] unless we have a reason to because I know the world is invested in this deal.” Renegotiation would be nearly impossible. The EU, Britain, France, and Germany have declined to reopen the agreement. Russia and China have also refused. Iran has also nixed the idea. Iranian “President Hassan Rouhani threaten to ‘respond decisively and resolutely’ if the United States chooses to blow up the accord.” Under the Nuclear Deal, Iran will be able to eventually enrich uranium.

DOJ Fights For Campus Free Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8722-DOJ-Fights-For-Campus-Free-Speech Attorney General Sessions pledged that the Justice Department would push back against colleges that silence free speech. “This permissive attitude toward the heckler's veto has spawned a cottage industry of protesters who have quickly learned that school administrators will capitulate to their demands.” "Protesters are now routinely shutting down speeches and debates across the country in an effort to silence voices that insufficiently conform with their views," said the Attorney General. Sessions promised that his department would enforce federal law and defend freedom of speech on campuses. The first action the DOJ plans, is to file a “Statement of Interest” in a “lawsuit filed by students at Georgia Gwinnett College” who were not allowed freedom of speech outside of a “free-speech zone.” Protesters were not allowed in the room where he delivered his statement. But protesters gathered outside to protest and kneel “in the name of civil rights.”

Otto Warmbier’s Last Days http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8721-Otto-Warmbier’s-Last-Days Otto Warmbier’s parents gave an interview on Tuesday wit Fox & Friends. Fred and Cindy Warmbier told of their experience in welcoming their son back home. Fred Warmbier described his son’s condition. "When we got halfway up the steps [of the plane], we heard this howling – [an] involuntary, inhuman sound. We weren't really certain what it was. We climbed to the top of the steps, and we looked in. And Otto was on the stretcher, across in the plane, and he was jerking violently, making these inhuman sounds. Cindy and Gretta [Otto's sister] ran off the plane." He went on to describe his son’s physical condition. Otto’s head had been shaved and a feeding tube was coming out of his nose. Otto was blind and deaf. “It looked like someone had taken a pair of pliers and re-arranged his bottom teeth.” “They destroyed him,” Cindy Warmbier said. "Our image of Otto, as you know, was of someone just wonderful, beautiful inside and out. And to see how he came home was too much for us. I almost passed out, but I got it together, and I rode in the ambulance with him, 'cause I did not want him to be alone anymore. He'd been alone for way too long. And we stayed with him and loved him as best as we could," she continued. The Warmbiers are pushing to have North Korea added to the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Republicans Ask for Independent Counsel Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8720-Republicans-Ask-for-Independent-Counsel-Investigation 14 Republican House Judiciary Committee members wrote a letter to the Department of Justice asking that a special counsel be appointed to investigate “actions taken by Obama Administration officials like former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” The matters that the Republicans are asking to be investigated, “appear to be outside the scope of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.” The letter to Attorney General Sessions points out that Director Comey “had prepared a statement ending the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, before interviewing at least 17 key witnesses, including the former Secretary herself.” The letter points out that Clinton’s FBI interview was not recorded and completely “inexplicable.” “The nation’s top law enforcement officials … conspired to sweep the Clinton ‘matter’ under the rug … [confirming] that there is, truly, one system for the powerful and politically well-connected, and another for everyone else.”

Roy Moore Wins Runoff http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8719-Roy-Moore-Wins-Runoff The Republican swamp was drained of one establishment incumbent Tuesday. Judge Roy Moore beat Senator Luther Strange. Moore will now face former Democrat Doug Jones in the general election on December 12. Jones is a former U.S. Attorney. He is a supporter of Obamacare, abortion, and Planned Parenthood. He believes in government interventionism in the student debt market and believes government should dictate the wages that employers pay their employees. Roy Moore believes in God, limited government, the Constitution, freedom, and liberty. Senate Majority Leader is said to have spent upwards of $30 million to back Luther Strange. But in the end, voters ditched Mitch and the entrenched establishment. Alabamian voters will have a sharp and distinct choice on December 12. With this win, grassroots conservatives will be emboldened to begin replacing incumbent Republicans. “The face of the Republican Party will soon start to resemble the heart that’s been driving votes for the last seven years.”

Instead she lives in a six million dollar home in a gated community in a more affluent area. Many wonder how she can afford that on a Congressional salary. In what appears to be a ruse to avoid answering such questions Waters has become obsessed with the impeachment President Donald Trump, even though she appears to have not ever read the U.S. Constitution. She was actually calling for Trump’s impeachment before he was elected. She has since called for his impeachment for a number of weird reasons and the latest is because he has criticized NFL players for disrespecting the national anthem. None of reasons come close to the constitutional standard of impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Teacher Rewrites Declaration of Independence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8717-Teacher-Rewrites-Declaration-of-Independence A fourth grade teacher at Salk Elementary School in Mesa, Arizona decided that she needed to rewrite the Declaration of Independence to make it politically correct. She took out the words man and men and changed them to human, so instead of stating that “all men are created equal” it said that “all humans are created equal” etc. She then forced the children in her class to recite the PC version. The mother of one student was outraged so she posted the revised version of the declaration on her Facebook.

The school administration immediately attacked the mother for “hurting the teacher’s feelings”. However, as outrage spread among parents the school eventually apologized and admitted the historic document should not have been altered.

Massive damage from hurricanes Irma and Maria has caused many areas to be inaccessible due to the blockage of roads and destruction of bridges, not to mention the major flooding.

This means that when supplies such as food, water, medicine, and fuel are brought into the islands the people that desperately need them are not able to get to the locations where the relief is available and rescuers can’t reach them. In Puerto Rico there is also the imminent danger of a major dam breaking and causing additional devastating flooding. There is still no power available.

The church had a mixed race congregation and was attacked by a black man who just happened to be an immigrant from Sudan. He started his shooting spree by killing a young white mother of three in the parking lot and then entered the church and shot the pastor and six other people.

He was stopped by a courageous young man who after being pistol whipped got his own legally owned firearm and held the shooter at bay until the police arrived. Most of the national news media ignored the story, because the shooter was not white, was an immigrant from a Muslim nation, and was stopped by someone who believes in the 2nd Amendment.

If the North were to take any such action it would lead to a strong and immediate response by the United States. Such action would not require a declaration of war by the U.S. Congress.

In fact, a state of war still exists between the United States and North Korea. The Korean War ended on July 27, 1953 with a cease-fire and armistice. In other words neither side surrendered so the armistice legally ended the fighting, but not necessarily the war.

I am confident that moving forward, this law will continue to be upheld as constitutional.”

Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, joined with Democrat Elijah Cummings to request that the White House and 24 other federal agencies turn over information about the use of personal email accounts. The House Oversight Committee investigated Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in 2015 and 2016. Kushner is alleged to have used a private email account “for occasional White House business.” Kushner released a statement saying that the emails were “forwarded to his official address and stored in accordance with policy.” According to Kushner’s attorney, “Fewer than 100 emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account.” In light of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, Democrats are likely to point out the hypocrisy of a member of the Trump administration using personal email accounts to transact government business. The letter from the House Oversight Committee, asked for the names of officials who use “text messages, phone-based message applications, or encryption software.”

According to investigators, the officer used the “social messaging service WhatsApp to give the terror cell details on what was a going on with the police investigation into their group’s activities.” Investigators are trying to find out what messages the officer sent and what “specific information” he passed along. It’s possible that the terror cell received information on potential raids that would have allowed members to evade capture. The officer faces charges of “violation of professional secrecy and corruption” charges. Authorities have not yet charged the officer with any terror related charges. Last year in Germany an officer was arrested for trying to recruit Islamists and “plotted to bomb the national headquarter of the agency in Cologne.”

It was an increase o five percent from the previous year. Migrants gravitated towards pickpocketing, heroin trafficking, and car thefts. Immigrants committed crimes “at three and a half times the rate of Germans.” On Sunday, Angela Merkel’s party was given a shock by voters. The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party captured 13 percent of the vote, making it the third largest political party. Leaders of the party opposed Merkel’s open border policies and wants greater restrictions on immigration. Merkel will now have several difficult months ahead of her as she tries to form a government.

Snowflakes Need Emotional Safety Pits http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8705-Snowflakes-Need-Emotional-Safety-Pits Universities are going all out to support their tender snowflake students. The latest trend is to provide “ball pits as a means of providing their students with ‘emotional safety.’” The ball pits are used “as icebreakers, to break down racial barriers, facilitate lessons on wellness, and as part of freshmen orientation.” “The ball pits were perfect for allowing students to feel comfortable,” said Kate Ayotte at Central Connecticut State University. “That was the greatest benefit for helping them have conversations with other students they didn’t know and talk about mental health. They were so relaxed and just hanging out in the pools.” Cynthia Cutshall with St. Mary’s College said, “The balls start conversations between student sand help them get to know one another on a slightly deeper level.” At Ole Miss, administrators write questions on the balls so as to facilitate conversations. Students can also write questions on balls so they can engage other students. Most ball pits are found in children’s play areas at places such as McDonalds.

Election Eve Campaigning in Alabama http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8704-Election-Eve-Campaigning-in-Alabama Monday was the final full day of campaigning before Tuesday’s special election in Alabama to pick a Republican nominee to replace former Senator Jeff Sessions. In one rally, Judge Moore spoke out against the political ads accusing him of not believing in the Second Amendment. Judge Moore said those ads were “completely false.” To demonstrate his belief, he “pulled out a concealed carry handgun, held it up high and said, “I believe in the Second Amendment.” In a rally Monday evening, Moore campaigned with Sarah Palin, Nigel Farage, Steve Bannon, and Phil Robertson. Moore said, “We’ve got to go back to God. We’ve got to go back to a moral base.” He said that by voting on Tuesday, voters could take a stand against the Washington establishment and those that tried to buy the election for $30 million. Steve Bannon told the crowd that Judge Moore represented the values of the people of Alabama. He added that by voting for Moore, the voters were voting for Donald Trump and voting to “Make America Great Again.”

Rand Paul Outlines What it Would Take To Get His Support http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8703-Rand-Paul-Outlines-What-it-Would-Take-To-Get-His-Support Senator Rand Paul outlined the changes that he would have to see in Graham-Cassidy in order to get his support. The senator sees the block grants as just an extension of Obamacare. "Graham/Cassidy keeps and redistributes/spends over a trillion dollars. My promise to the voters was to repeal Obamacare - not block grant and keep Obamacare. If Obamacare were truly repealed, this entire trillion dollars would not be spent. This is the primary obstacle to my support, and only a significant reassessment of this trillion-dollar spending regime would get my support." However, if the legislation was changed to accommodate Senator Paul, Graham-Cassidy would lose the support of other Republican senators. Senator Paul also wants Congress to act on his Association Health Plans idea which would let businesses and individuals “band together to buy health insurance as a group.”

North Korea Claims U.S. Declared War On North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8702-North-Korea-Claims-U.S.-Declared-War-On-North-Korea The war of words between President Trump and North Korea has now risen to the level of war, according to North Korea’s Foreign Minister. “Last week, Trump claimed that our leadership wouldn’t be around much longer, and hence, at last, he declared war on our country,” said foreign minister Ri Jong Ho. "Given the fact that this comes from someone who is currently holding the seat of the United States presidency, this is clearly a declaration of war. The U.N. charter stipulates individual member states’ rights to self-defense." The foreign minister said that North Korea reserved the right to shoot down planes near their border. "Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down the United States’ strategic bombers, even when they're not yet inside the air-space border of our country.”

Three Republican Senators Kill Graham-Cassidy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8701-Three-Republican-Senators-Kill-Graham-Cassidy Senator Susan Collins of Maine killed the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill when she announced that she would join Senators McCain and Paul to vote against it. Collins opposed the bill for three reasons. 1. It would take $1 trillion out of the Medicaid program between 2020 and 2036. 2. There is the possibility that states could “weaken protections for people with pre-existing conditions.” 3. Finally she said that physicians, insurers, and hospitals did not support the plan. Under Graham-Cassidy, responsibility for healthcare services would be returned to the states, and it would overturn the individual mandate. If Graham-Cassidy is brought to a vote, it will likely be defeated. Republicans will try to shore up Obamacare and keep it stable.

Republicans In Control Of NLRB http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8700-Republicans-In-Control-Of-NLRB Republicans now hold a majority on the National Labor Relations Board. The board “oversees workplace disputes and union elections.” William Emanuel was appointed by President Trump. He has worked as labor attorney for management and is a member of the Federalist Society. Under the Republican controlled board, the agency will consider several challenges to decisions made by the Obama administration. Trey Kovacs with the Competitive Enterprise Institute said, “"It's essential that the NLRB start to undo the harm caused during the Obama administration, when the board put out numerous job-killing decisions and rules that weaken worker choice.” During hearings, Democrats fiercely opposed Emanuel’s appointment, pointing out that Emanuel had “never represented a worker or union in an employment matter — not even in pro bono work. The next opening on the National Labor Relations Board will open in December when the current chairman’s term expires.

U.S. Military Stretched Very Thin http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8699-U.S.-Military-Stretched-Very-Thin The United States military is just beginning to recover from the massive cuts made by Obama to both its manpower and budget. Now, while it still has thousands of troops deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and South Korea it is being called on to respond to the devastation caused by three massive hurricanes that hit the mainland of the country as well as our territories like the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

This is causing the military to be stretched very thin, and there is also the growing concern about the incredible stress level being reached by our men and women in the services. Units of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and National Guard have been moving from one disaster area to another over the last month. They are nearing the point of exhaustion.

New Republican Obamacare Repeal Plan Collapsing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8698-New-Republican-Obamacare-Repeal-Plan-Collapsing It now appears that unless there is a miracle the Republicans in the Senate are going to fail once again to fulfill a promise they have been making to the voters for seven years. They are not going to have the votes to pass a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare. The question for many people is not whether the objections to the proposed bill are valid or not.

Instead they fear that the ultimate outcome may be that the Republicans may lose the Senate majority in the midterm elections and never have another chance. They also fear that this might open the door to the ultimate Democrat goal of socialized medicine in the United States.

Amid the NFL Protests One Man Stands Alone http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8697-Amid-the-NFL-Protests-One-Man-Stands-Alone On a day that many people believe will live in infamy for the NFL, players on almost every team disrespected the country that has made them millionaires by sitting or kneeling in protest of the National Anthem. The only one that had no players participate in the protests was the Carolina Panthers. In the case, of the Pittsburg Steelers, the players and most coaches chose to hide in their locker room until the anthem was over.

However, there was one notable exception; Steeler Alejandro Villaneuva stood alone on the field. He is a West Point graduate and served two combat tours in Afghanistan. He knows what the Star Spangled Banner stands for. He is one of only three members of the NFL who has served in the military. The rest don’t know what it means to serve in the military, a police department, or as a first responder.

Many people immediately took to social media to ask the actor what “science” he was referring to and who decided what scientific facts were acceptable.

For many people that answer was obvious, you have to believe in man-made climate change and the Paris Climate agreement signed by Barack Obama. At the same time, many people pointed out the DiCaprio and his fellow elitists ignore other scientific facts like life beginning at conception so they can continue to support abortion on demand.

Hillary Clinton Calls out Women who Voted Against her http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8695-Hillary-Clinton-Calls-out-Women-who-Voted-Against-her One of the many reasons that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump was the fact that she labeled most Trump supporters a basket of deplorables who were racists, homophobic, etc. Now, as part of her desperate effort to blame everyone and everything for her loss, except of course herself, she has set her sights on women who dared to vote against her.

She first made the ridiculous statement that women who voted against her did so only because their husbands told them to. That angered many women, but then she came back and said that the women who voted against her “disrespected themselves”. That will probably not go over well either.

Many people believe this was a deliberate act of disrespect not only to Americans and their flag, but to our veterans and active military that have fought and died for that flag.

What the liberal press rarely mentions though is who Kaepernick looks at as his heroes. He speaks highly of Fidel Castro and his oppressive communist regime in Cuba. He has also been seen wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt that shows he idolizes one of the most brutal terrorists in history who was infamous for leading his armed men into isolated Cuban villages, killing all the men and boys, and raping women and girls before murdering them.

California Could Experiment All It Wants under Graham-Cassidy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8691--California-Could-Experiment-All-It-Wants-under-Graham-Cassidy Under the Graham-Cassidy legislation, California would be able to experiment with a single-payer system. The legislation would block grant funds to the states and allow them to create their own solutions to healthcare. Justice Louis Brandeis once wrote the the states were “laboratories of democracy.” The state can “try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.” A plan was introduced earlier in 2017 to create a single-payer system in California. It reportedly would cost the state $400 billion per year. The state would have to raise and additional $200 a year in taxes to pay for it. The legislation was shelved until the legislature figured out a funding mechanism. Democrats politicians in California are pushing to derail Graham-Cassidy. The state does not want to be left alone to experiment. “Unless the other states can be coerced into following California’s example — whether on healthcare, transgender bathrooms, climate change, or immigration — then a grave injustice is said to be taking place.

Californians Rush to Fund DACA http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8690--Californians-Rush-to-Fund-DACA Californians are being persuaded to donate their own money to “cover costs for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.” The renewal fee is $495. Judy London, an immigrant rights attorney, said, “These DACA beneficiaries are often working two jobs and paying college tuition. There is just not $495 lying around.” People who renew under DACA by October 5 will be protected for two years. One donor gave $50,000 to the effort to help more people sign up or renew under DACA. When the program ends in October, Congress will have six months to act to pass legislation legalizing the so-called Dreamers. According to Homeland Security, “the Department of Justice has carefully evaluated the program’s constitutionality and determined it conflicts with . . . existing immigrations laws.” California taxpayers will still have to fund some of the effort. $20 million was approved to be earmarked to support DACA recipients.

New Travel Ban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8689-New-Travel-Ban As the president’s travel ban is set to expire, the Trump administration is rolling out a new plan to deny visas to citizens of seven countries. Citizens from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen may now have their visas denied. These countries do not “provide ‘baseline’ identification about their citizens who ask for visas to travel to the United States.” “The policy will apply to foreign citizens who are seeking to visit the United States for business or tourism and will also cover people apply for visas as would-be refugees or immigrants.” The president insisted that his obligation is “to ensure the safety and security of the American people.” The president’s statement said that several nations who were not in compliance and increased their “information sharing with the United States regarding terrorism threats.” If the named countries work with the American government, these visa restrictions may be eased or lifted.

Merkel Wins Fourth Term http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8688-Merkel-Wins-Fourth-Term Germany’s Angela Merkel won a fourth term as Chancellor. But her win was overshadowed by the Alternative for Germany party’s surprise 13 percent showing. The AfD is now Germany’s third largest political party. It campaigned on a platform of being anti-immigration and anti-Islam. Outside of an AfD celebratory event, protestors “rallied outside, shouting “Nazis out!” The AfD was able to gain political traction for its message in the former German east block. As a minority party it may not have much official power, but it will have greater visibility and government financing. Turnout in the German election was up from 71.5 percent four years ago to 76 percent on Sunday. Merkel set out to win 40 percent of the vote but fell short. She said, "There's a big new challenge for us, and that is the entry of the AfD in the Bundestag. We want to win back AfD voters." Because Merkel’s party does not have a ruling majority, the party will have to form a coalition government which could be “a thorny, months-long process.”

GOP Swamp Worried Moore Might Win http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8687-GOP-Swamp-Worried-Moore-Might-Win The Republican swamp is “deeply worried” that incumbent Senator Luther Strange will not pull out a win for the nomination on Tuesday. Judge Roy Moore has a history of not bending the knee. He refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the state courthouse. He told the clerk of courts to not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. He’s also called for Mitch McConnell to be ousted from Republican leadership. If Moore wins on Tuesday, other principled conservatives might challenge incumbent Republicans in other states. Roy Moore’s well funded opponents are running “non-stop TV ads, a meticulously-crafted get-out-the-vote effort, and detailed, opportunity-research-filled debate prep sessions for Strange.” Moore’s campaign has cast Luther Strange as “a pawn of the party establishment and especially McConnell.” Moore’s campaign has received the support of Sarah Palin, Steve Bannon, Sean Hannity, and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson. Bannon calls the race a “civil war that will put the establishment and movement wings of the party.”

Who Pays the Obamacare Tax? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8686-Who-Pays-the-Obamacare-Tax? The people paying the Obamacare tax are not the rich. Instead, the people paying the tax are the poor, the very people whom the Democrats say (with a wink) they want to help. More than one in three households earning less than $25,000 had to pay the tax in 2015. “More than 75% of penalized households made less than $50,000 and nine in 10 earned less than $75,000.” Taxing the poor and the middle class is becoming lucrative for politicians and the bureaucrats at the IRS. “Government revenues increased to more than $3 billion from about $1.7 billion, as the financial punishment for lacking coverage increased.” The government compels the poor to buy a product they either don’t want or can’t afford, which results in the poor having “less money for household expenses.” If government were to get out of healthcare, prices would fall just like they do in other free market sectors such as “televisions, cell phones, and laptop computers.”

The gunman “began indiscriminately shooting” after he entered the church. After being “confronted by a church usher” the gunman “shot himself during the struggle.” Witnesses said the gunman was wearing a clown mask when he entered the church, but police say it was a ski mask. The user, Rober Engle, was pistol-whipped, “causing ‘significant injury around his head.’” Engle went to his vehicle to retrieve a gun. He returned and held the gunman at gunpoint until police arrived. Mayor Began Barry said the shooting “is a terrible tragedy for our city. My heart aches for the family and finds of the deceased as well as for the wounded victims and their loved ones.” The shooter has been released from the hospital and is awaiting charges.

UK Credit Rating Falls http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8684-UK-Credit-Rating-Falls Prime Minister Theresa May delivered a speech in Florence, Italy last week. It was intended to break open the stalled Brexit negotiations. But it appears that the only thing that did break was the United Kingdom’s credit rating. The bond rating company, Moody’s, downgraded the country’s credit rating another notch. Since 2013, Britain had a Aa1 rating, one notch below triple A. Moody’s said, “The outlook for the Uk”s public finances has weakened significantly since the negative outlook on the Aa1 rating was assigned, with the government’s fiscal consolidation plans increasingly in question and the debt burden expected to continue to rise.” The rating company went on to say that it doubted that the “UK government will be able to secure a replacement free trade agreement with the EU which substantially mitigates the negative economic impact of Brexit.” Britain’s Treasury disputed the decision saying that the assessments “about Brexit . . . are outdated.”

NFL Controversy, Some History http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8683-NFL-Controversy,-Some-History The national anthem was first played during the 1918 World Series. By 1954, the manager for the Baltimore Orioles thought the crowds so disrespectful by “laughing and moving around as the anthem was played,” that he stopped playing it. He relented when the Baltimore City Council pressured him to bring it back. While many fans honor the anthem today, many others are glued to their phones, drinking beer, or worse while the anthem is played. It only became obligatory for players and team personnel to be present on the sidelines for the playing of the anthem in 2009 when the Defense Department began paying millions of dollars to sporting teams to stir up patriotism and support the troops. In 2016, Colin Kaepernick did not choose to protest the United States government’s military adventurism overseas, instead he announced, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Even though Kaepernick is a black man and was at the time “in the second year of a seven-year $126 million contract.” On Saturday, President Trump demanded fealty to the state by demanding that NFL owners fire players who don’t stand for the playing of the anthem. Even though, “there is no connection between the United States government, its Empire and endless wars and the National Football League.”

The comments by the prime minister are seen as unusual as the standard operating procedure for other European leaders is to deny the existence of no-go zones. “It’s a matter of being realistic about the situation, and there are areas where there is already a different set of rules. Where the gangs are in control and the police can not work. I can not sit and passively let it happen.” “We have tried everything possible, but we just could not solve the problem.” The prime minister wants the government to figure out how to better “integrate Muslim pupils in schools” and to resolve the “emergence of parallel societies.” The Danish People’s Party which opposes mass immigration is also concerned with “the growing number or radical Islamist in neighboring Sweden. The party wants to greatly increase security along border with Sweden.

She’s also willing to pay a significant tax to leave the EU. Nigel Farage, who led the Brexit effort, said, “May’s vision for Brexit Britain is that we leave in name only and that all current arrangements, the status quo, is simply to be rebadged.” Farage called May’s statement “a sell out of our national interest, and a betrayal of Brexit.” When Theresa May became Prime Minister, she said that her intent was to make a quick and clean break from the EU. By lengthening the “transitional period” giving no end date, the transition could “well extend beyond this [current] government to a government of different color, who back remaining in the EU or the Single Market.” Brexit supporters were swift to condemn May’s actions saying that the Prime Minister was attempting to throw the next election to Labour so they can claim support for keeping Britain in the EU.

McCain’s announcement is the second time that he has saved Obamacare.

DeVos Pulls Obama Era Rules http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8679-DeVos-Pulls-Obama-Era-Rules Education Secretary DeVos ended the Obama administration’s campus sexual misconduct policies. The new guidance emphasizes that colleges must “combat sexual misconduct on campus, the process must be ‘fair and impartial,’ and inspiring ‘confidence in its outcomes.’” The secretary’s statement said, “The withdrawn documents ignored notice and comment requirements, created a system that lacked basic elements of due process and failed to ensure fundamental fairness.” “…[T]he era of rule by letter is over. The Department of Education will follow the proper legal procedures to craft a new Title IX regulation that better serves student sand schools.” The department plans to receive public comments “from stakeholders and members of the public” in preparation for new rules. Under Obama era rules, students who were accused of sexual assault were denied due process rights. Obama officials “threatened to cut funding to colleges and universities who did not implement the guidance” for sexual assault cases.

President Campaigns for Luther Strange http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8678-President-Campaigns-for-Luther-Strange The president vowed to support whoever wins Alabama’s runoff next Tuesday. "I told Luther, I have to say this, if his opponent wins, I'm going to be here campaigning like hell for him.” Currently Judge Roy Moore is leading in the polls. Despite the polls, Trump told rally attendees that Luther Strange has a good chance at winning the election. He said that Moore had “a very good chance of not winning in the general election.” Many of Trump’s allies inside and outside his administration support Roy Moore. Ben Carson publicly endorsed Moore on Friday. Even though Strange has the full support of establishment Republicans, the president made the astonishing claim that Strange was not at all closely aligned with the Republican establishment in D.C. That, in fact, Strange was “determined to drain the swamp.” It’s doubtful that Strange would even consider draining the establishment swamp that has poured millions of dollars into his campaign. It’s more likely that he would embrace the swamp.

President Inserted Inflammatory Language Into Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8677-President-Inserted-Inflammatory-Language-Into-Speech Aides to President Trump warned him not to attack North Korea’s leader personally during his first speech to the United Nations. However, the president apparently inserted inflammatory language into his speech while speaking. “Totally destroy” and “Rocket Man” were not in the original draft of the speech. During his speech the president said, “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice by to totally destroy North Korea.” After the speech, Kim Jong Un called President Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard” and said the president is a “gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician.” Some advisors to the president think the heated rhetoric may derail the effort to use sanctions to bring the North Korean leader to the negotiating table.

Education Secretary Flies At Her Own Expense http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8676-Education-Secretary-Flies-At-Her-Own-Expense Secretary of Education, DeVos travels to events around the country in a private plane. But she owns the plane. And she’s picking up all the costs out of her own pocket. So far “The secretary neither seeks, nor accepts, any reimbursement for her flights, nor for any additional official travel-related expenses, such as lodging and per diem.” According to a spokesman for DeVos, she would be entitled to reimbursement under the federal government’s travel guidelines. The spokesman pointed out that “DeVos accepted her position to serve the public and is committed to being a faithful steward of taxpayer dollars.” When the Associated Press story broke, the organization did not make it clear that DeVos was flying in her own plane. The original misleading story was “widely shared by angry liberal readers” one of whom “suggested that DeVos should be the prisoner of a rapist for her use of a private plane.” The AP later updated its story headline and deleted the misleading tweet.

Uber Can’t Operate in London http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8675-Uber-Can’t-Operate-in-London Uber will not be “issued a new private hire license” to operate its ride sharing service in London. The Transport for London (TfL) authority cited “public safety and security implications” for denying Uber an operating license. Uber will not be allowed to operate after October 1. However, it will have 21 days to appeal and during the appeal process, it will be allowed to operate. The company said that it plans to appeal. Uber said “far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies.” All this aside, the real reason why Uber’s license was not granted was more to do “with defending the jobs of . . . politically organized supporters in the transport industry.” London taxi drivers don’t want competition. Transport for London has 28,000 unionized employees and “22,000 politically powerful drivers of black London taxis. By using the power of government, the unions can keep their monopoly, keep charging high prices, and not have to improve their service or innovate.

No Great Surprise http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8674-No-Great-Surprise Senator John McCain announced on Friday that he could not “in good conscience” support the Graham-Cassidy legislation that would block grant money to the states for healthcare. The ailing senator said, “As I have repeatedly stressed, health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate.” The senator said that he had no idea how much the program would cost, how it would effect insurance premiums, and who would be helped or hurt by it. Senator McCain stressed the need for bi-partisanship, “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried.” Since Senator McCain is functionally a Democrat, simply by his voting for Graham-Cassidy, he would make it a grand bi-partisan effort.

Elon Musk’s Company Settles Federal Probe http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8673-Elon-Musk’s-Company-Settles-Federal-Probe Elon Musk is addicted to government money. One of his acquisitions, SolarCity, allegedly inflated “its costs to receive higher stimulus funds than it deserved.” The company has agreed to pay the U.S. Treasury $29.5 million to resolve allegations and end the federal probe. SolarCity was investigated to determine if it had inflated its costs so as to “cash in on the stimulus funds” that were being handed out by the federal government after the economic crisis. Under the federal program, taxpayers paid for “roughly 30 percent of the cost to install or acquire solar systems.” The federal government began to “reconsider some of its own valuations and . . . the amounts it had previously approved and paid” and began to investigate SolarCity However, the federal government dropped its legal case against SolarCity after one of its academic witnesses was discredited in a trial. The government opted to force a settlement with SolarCity.

Trump Tax Plan Gaining Momentum http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8672-Trump-Tax-Plan-Gaining-Momentum Senate Republicans are rallying behind President Trump’s proposal for massive tax cuts. Key senators have embraced the idea of a $1.5 trillion tax cut to be spread out over a ten year period and many believe that the increase in revenue from economic growth as a result of the portion of cuts for businesses will help reduce the deficit.

Trump says this will be the largest tax cut in American history and will benefit corporations, small businesses, and individual taxpayers. However, while it is off to a good start there are many specifics of the plan that need to be worked out.These include what current deductions might be eliminated, and whether there will be corresponding cuts in federal spending. Clearly, a lot more needs to be done.

Puerto Rico May be Without Power for Months http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8671-Puerto-Rico-May-be-Without-Power-for-Months Even before the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria it had been suffering under crushing debt for a long time. One of the major problems was the decaying electrical grid on the island. Now the entire island is without power, and major portions of it are also under water. As a result it may be up to six months until much of the power is restored.

Making needed repairs may be an almost insurmountable task with bridges destroyed and many roads impassable. This also poses problems for getting food and water to residents since the public water supply is dependent on a functioning electric grid.

In addition to commanding large sums of money for Wall Street speeches, he can’t stop singing his own praises. At a recent speech to a “Goalkeepers” convention of the Gates Foundation, Obama talked about himself 42 times during the 18 minute speech.

It got no better during the 30 minute question and answer session. Among other things he talked glowingly his time as a community organizer in Chicago. In total he used the terms “I” or “me” 96 times during the 48 minute appearance.

The rise is due to a number of factors including escalating property values and increasing value in financial assets. Other big factors are the steadily improving job market and a low inflation rate.

When this information is couple with the growth in the overall economy during the last two quarters it appears that the country is on its way to increased prosperity and growth under the administration of President Donald Trump.

Ghani called the difference between the Obama approach and that of Trump is “night and day”. He praised Trump’s courage and determination and stated that the new strategy has put his country on a path to victory over the Taliban.

For his part, Trump said that every report he is getting from the battlefront show that there is a tremendous new fighting spirit among the American and Afghan troops. Both presidents stressed that American troops are only providing training and support with the Afghans doing the bulk of the fighting.

New Sanctions Placed on North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8666-New-Sanctions-Placed-on-North-Korea President Obama has signed an Executive Order placing sweeping new sanctions on North Korea and its dictator Kim Jong Un. The sanctions are designed to further isolate the regime and hurt its economy so it has considerably less money to spend on its nuclear program. Essentially Trump told governments and companies that if you do business with North Korea you cannot do business with the U.S.

In addition, in a surprise move, China announced that it has ordered its central bank to order all Chinese banks to stop providing credit for companies to do new business with North Korea. The question is whether the Chinese will actually follow through with this.

War on Big Oil http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8665-War-on-Big-Oil Five oil companies were sued by the city attorneys in San Francisco and Oakland, California on Tuesday. The lawsuit is asking the courts to hold the companies “responsible for climate change, and force them to financially compensate the cities for harm.” British Petroleum, Chevron, Conoco Phillips, Exxon Mobile, and Royal Dutch Shell were named in the suit. “For decades, Defendants have known that their fossil fuels pose risks of ‘severe’ and ‘catastrophic’ impacts on the global climate through the worlds and warnings of their own scientists or through their trade association.” The suit charges the oil companies encouraged “fuel consumption at levels that [were] certain to severely harm the public.” The suit could levy billions of dollars in claims against the companies. One option for the oil companies is to “remove these lawsuits to federal court.” While they likely would not get a favorable ruling in the Ninth Circuit, the appeals would end up in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Competing Rallies in Alabama http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8664--Competing-Rallies-in-Alabama As President Trump stumped for Senator Luther Strange, former governor Sarah Palin spoke at an enthusiastic rally for Judge Roy Moore. “A vote for Judge Moore isn’t a vote against the president. It’s a vote for the people’s agenda that elected the president,” said Palin. She continued, “We voted to put America first. Not the political elite that had ignored us for decades. We voted for a big beautiful wall, not for another amnesty deal.” Palin called on voters to “send a loud and clear message” to the establishment swamp by voting for Judge Moore. “We’re sending Trump someone who has our back — not Mitch McConnell’s. Make no mistake: Big Luther is Mitch McConnell’s guy.” Moore is considered by many voters to be a more reliable vote in the Senate than Luther Strange. Moore is leading in every state poll. He is expected to win in the runoff election next Tuesday.

Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the use of the cell-site simulator “to locate a person through his or her cellphone invades the person’s actual, legitimate and reasonable expectation of privacy in his or her location information ad is a search.” The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee found that the cell-site simulator was a technology that could “help officers be safe and accomplish their missions” but warned that “absent proper oversight and safeguards,” the technology “may well infringe upon the constitutional rights of citizens to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as the right to free association.” The appeals court ruled that the cell-site simulator violated the Fourth Amendment rights of Prince Jones who was convicted of robbery and sexual assault.

On Tuesday, President Trump said, “The United States is a nation of great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” North Korea responded by calling Trump a “barking dog.” Kim Jong Un personally responded on Thursday saying that the president’s remarks “convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last.” He added that President Trump is “unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country.” President Trump signed an executive order that would severely sanction banks that do business with North Korea. China warned its banks to cut off transactions with North Korea as well.

Chronic Teacher Absenteeism http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8661-Chronic-Teacher-Absenteeism 28 percent of government school teachers “chronically” skip class. According to the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, nearly a third of government teachers “miss 11 or more school days each year.” They are “three times more likely than their charter school counterparts to take more than 10 days a year off school for personal or health-related reasons.” Teachers in Hawaii get “18 sick leave days out of their 180-day school year.” Nearly 80 percent take off at least 10 of those days. David Griffith, author of the study, said that government school teachers “are usually subject to collective bargaining agreements that are extremely generous when it comes to the amount of sick and personal leave that teachers are guaranteed.” Griffith argued that there is a direct correlation between student performance and teacher attendance. He said that students are losing nearly two weeks of education as a result.

The not-citizens were registered to vote through Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation when they sought a driver’s license. During the Clinton administration, the so called Motor Voter Law was pushed through by Democrats to make it easier for people to register to vote. Opponents of the law predicted that people who were not eligible to vote would end up getting registered. Voting rights advocates claim that fraudulent voting rarely happens. The Public Interest Legal Foundation “found thousands of illegal voters registered and casting ballots in both Virginia and New Jersey.” A spokesman for the group said, “DMVs should never be in the business of offering voter registration to Green Card holders.

Printing offices and newspapers have been raided looking for independence related propaganda. Protestors vandalized police cars and Civil Guards were not allowed to leave a building. The Spanish government warned of “greater harm” if Catalonia goes forwards with the independence referendum. Individuals overseeing the vote could possibly be fined thousands of euros every day for their work on the vote. Catalonia enjoys some autonomy from Spain. It’s economy represents 20 percent of Spain’s total economy. The European Central Bank is buying Spanish debt so as to give the illusion of confidence. The shorting of Spanish bonds has been outlawed. The crackdown by the Spanish government may give new energy to the independence movement and sway voters towards exiting Spain.

Possible Steering Failure on USS John S. McCain http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8656-Possible-Steering-Failure-on-USS-John-S.-McCain Investigators who are looking into the collision between the USS John S. McCain and an oil tanker are leaning towards a loss of steering as the cause and “the crew’s failure to compensate.” Warships generally use manual steering when traveling through “high-traffic shipping areas.” However, the crew was not using manual controls when the two ships collided. Part of regular training is to practice “what to do when steering controls on a warship are lost.” On a guided missile destroyer, manual controls should be manned so that if steering control is lost it can be regained quickly. Ten sailors died as a result of the collision. The cost to repair the ship may run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

The television audience across the nation continues to be low and the networks are facing the loss of up to $200 million in advertising revenue.

The warming is not accelerating as fast as anticipated and man-made carbon dioxide is not that much of a contributing factor.

This report follows on the heels of several major scientists concluding that the major hurricanes this year are not outside of the patterns that have been occurring for the past 100 years.

The level some will take this to became clear when liberal journalist Sarah Jaffe tweeted out that when Miami police posted warnings against looting after Hurricane Irma they were being racist.

Apparently, in her view private property is a product of white supremacy, and the arrest of looters, particularly if they are black, is also an exercise of white supremacy. She failed to say how she would categorize a situation where white looters were arrested for stealing from a home or business owned by black Americans.

Hurricane Maria Deals Severe Blow to Puerto Rico http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8649-Hurricane-Maria-Deals-Severe-Blow-to-Puerto-Rico The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has been hit by a hurricane with force “not seen in modern history” Maria tore into the island with windsup to 175 miles per hour, rain fall in some areas in excess of two feet, major flooding, and landslides. The bankrupt American territory is totally without power and it may be months before it is restored in many places.

There has also been severe damage to homes and other buildings including hotels and hospitals. The U.S. Virgin Islands took a similar hit with St. Croix getting the worst of it. Reports are just coming in of massive damage in an area that was hard hit by Hurricane Irma just weeks ago.

Unmasking Scandal Growing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8648-Unmasking-Scandal-Growing The claims against members of the Obama administration for unmasking members of the Trump campaign prior to his election as President. Unmasking involves the uncovering of the names of American citizens who are involved in phone calls with foreign nationals who are under surveillance.The Americans are not being investigated so their names are supposed to be kept secret except in extraordinary circumstances.

Certain government officials can request the so-called unmasking, but must have a valid reason. Apparently no such reasons existed when Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Powers made the requests for over 260 calls involving members of the Trump campaign. Susan Rice and others working for Obama made similar requests.

Leftist Propaganda in Colleges is Working http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8647-Leftist-Propaganda-in-Colleges-is-Working New evidence is surfacing that the continuous onslaught of Leftist propaganda in many American universities is having its desired effect. Students are being told the United States of America is evil and needs to be destroyed because it is racist, sexist, homophobic, islamaphobic etc, They are being taught that the Constitution is also evil and it and the rights guaranteed by it need to be rescinded.

The First Amendment right to free speech is a specific target with a recent survey showing that 19% of undergraduates believe it is OK to use violence to shut down conservative speakers on campus.

President May Junk Iran Nuclear Deal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8646-President-May-Junk-Iran-Nuclear-Deal President Trump is leaning towards decertifying the nuclear deal with Iran. The deadline is October 15. If the president decertifies the deal, Congress will have a “60-day window . . . to determine whether to reimpose sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear program.” At the United Nations General Assembly, President Trump called the agreement an “embarrassment.” Another option that the president is considering is to encourage European allies to agree to renegotiate the agreement. Britain’s prime minister is expected to raise “strong objections to pulling out of the joint agreement.” The French president said that it would be a “big mistake” if the United States decertifies the deal. Iran’s leader said that his country would not renegotiate the deal and that “no one will trust America again if Trump backs out of the agreement.” Secretary of State Tillerson said that while Iran has met the technical details of the agreement, there are larger “political concerns.” Iran is “rapidly deploying and developing a whole series of ballistic missiles.” As well the sunset provisions “allow some of the deal’s restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program to wind down over time.”

California Sues to Stop Wall http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8645-California-Sues-to-Stop-Wall California’s attorney general filed suit in federal court in San Diego to stop the construction of California’s border wall. The attorney general is seeking to halt the wall’s construction “on the basis of federal environmental protection laws.” The suit argues that the Trump administration’s attempt to waive environmental laws are illegal. California wants extensive environmental impact studies done along with “demonstrations of compliance” with the state’s coastal commission regulations. The suit also complains that the wall would have a negative impact on tourism from Mexico. The president signed an executive order giving the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border patrol “broad authority to get the wall projects moving. The Department of Justice will ask for a motion to dismiss.

More Sales for American Gun Manufactures http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8644-More-Sales-for-American-Gun-Manufactures U.S. gun makers may soon have “more leeway in selling arms and ammunition to foreign buyers.” The Trump administration is planning to “shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department.” Congress will not need to approve the change in rules. The Department of Commerce’s job is to promote commerce of American goods. So it will be “more interested in upping trade numbers than restriction firearm sales.” A member of the administration said, “You could really turn the spigot on if you do it the right way.” Sales of American made firearms “could increase by 15-20 percent annually.” While the president ran on a pro-Second Amendment platform, Congress has done little to reform firearms laws. The national reciprocity legislation will likely not come up for a vote because Speaker Ryan opposes it.

Fed to Reduce Its Balance Sheet http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8643-Fed-to-Reduce-Its-Balance-Sheet The Federal Reserve did not raise the federal funds rate at its September meeting. It did announce that it would begin to sell off “securities it bought at the height of the financial crisis.” The Federal Reserve bought $4.5 trillion in securities to stabilize the markets. It will begin to sell $6 billion per month of Treasury bonds, $4 billion per month in agency debt and mortgage backed securities. The amount sold every month will increase until it hits $30 billion in Treasury bonds and $20 billion in other debt sales. By purchasing securities, the Federal Reserve pumped money into the financial system. The markets and the economy have become addicted to the vast amounts of money that the Fed created. Now that the Fed is selling securities, it will be taking money out of the financial system. If the Fed continues selling $50 billion worth of securities every month, it will take 71 months to reduce its balance sheet.

Document Request Sent to White House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8642-Document-Request-Sent-to-White-House Special counsel Robert Mueller is asking the White House “to turn over documents” that are related to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Mueller’s office prepared a document “detailing 13 different areas that his investigators want to know more about.” The special counsel’s office is asking for information surrounding the firing of Michael Flynn, the Oval Office meeting with several Russian officials, and the White House response to Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer. The president’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, told the special counsel’s office that he would “turn over many of the documents this week.” The president’s firing of Comey eventually led to the appointment of Robert Mueller. Critics of the firing say that President Trump was trying to obstruct justice.

Gun Control Carpetbaggers Pour Money Into Virginia’s Political Races http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8641-Gun-Control-Carpetbaggers-Pour-Money-Into-Virginia’s-Political-Races Gun control advocates are pouring upwards $1 million into the Virginia’s governor and attorney general’s race. Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund will donate $450,000 to the Democratic gubernatorial nominees and $300,000 to the Democratic attorney general nominee. Another $250,000 will be spent on mailers. The gun control fund was founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Democratic gubernatorial nominee supports an “assault weapons ban, magazine size limits, universal background checks, and a return to the one-gun-a-month rule.” Everytown spokesman Brynne Craig said, “We are making this initial investment because Ralph Northam and Mark Herring have been forceful champions for gun violence prevention in Virginia, while their opponents subscribe to a dangerous ‘guns everywhere’ agenda.” Previous efforts by the gun control lobby failed to flip control of Virginia’s state senate to the Democrats in 2015. Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “Bloomberg knows that his agenda of gun control has been soundly rejected by the majority of voters in Virginia, so he is going back to his standard Plan B, which is trying to buy the election.”

VA Employee Fired For Second Time This Year http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8640-VA-Employee-Fired-For-Second-Time-This-Year A Department of Veterans Affairs fired Brian Hawkins for the second time this year. Hawkins was fired in July but reinstated by the Merit Systems Protection Board. The “VA center run by Hawkins was plagued by supply problems and unsanitary conditions stemming from years of mismanagement.” When he was reinstated, VA Secretary David Shulkin moved Hawkins to an administrative position. "No judge who has never run a hospital and never cared for our nation’s veterans will force me to put an employee back in a position when he allowed the facility to pose potential safety risks to our Veterans,” said Shulkin. Shulkin worked with Congress to rewrite the rules governing the firing of employees at the Veterans Administration. It used to take more than 50 days to fire an employee. The new rules now take 21 days. The VA fired Hawkins for a second time after an Inspector General’s report found that “Hawkins had emailed about sensitive medical information on unsecured accounts.” There is no word whether Hawkins will appeal.

Repair to Navy Ships to Cost Upwards of $600 Million http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8639-Repair-to-Navy-Ships-to-Cost-Upwards-of-$600-Million The two US Navy destroyers that collided with merchant ships will b repaired at an estimated cost of $600 million. The USS Fitzgerald will be returned to the United States for repairs. The USS John S. McCain will be sent to Japan for a full damage assessment and then returned to the United States. The collisions killed 17 sailors. Senator McCain said the incidents raise “serious questions about our maritime readiness to fight in response to North Korean, Chinese, and Russian aggression.” McCain thought the destroyers could be out of service anywhere from “months to years.” The Navy is still collecting information and does “not yet have an explanation for the collisions.” A panel investigating the collisions pointed to budget constraints as a reason for reduced training, delayed maintenance, and extended deployments. So far six senior officers have been fired “due to a ‘loss of confidence in their ability to command.’”

Most of the unmasking was done in the “final months” of the Obama administration. Samantha Power’s attorney defended her saying she was “responsible for advising the President on the full-range of threats confronting the United States. Any insinuation that Ambassador Power was involved in leaking classified information is absolutely false.” While previous UN ambassadors have made requests to unmask Americans, none of done as many as Samantha Power. The former UN ambassador will testify before the Senate and House Intelligence committees. She’s expected to appear before the House Intelligence committee for a private session in October. Power is thought by some critics to have misused her power and position to unmask Americans.

Bernie Sanders’ Wealth Tax http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8637-Bernie-Sanders’-Wealth-Tax Senator Bernie Sanders outlined a “wealth tax policy” last week. It was part of his ten ideas for paying for his single payer healthcare plan. The senator’s proposal would establish a 1% annual tax “on net worth exceeding $21 million. For someone such as Warren Buffet, the tax would potentially total hundreds of millions of dollars. In his “Options to Finance Medicare-For-All" the senator claimed that a wealth tax would raise $1.3 trillion over ten years. Under his plan the IRS would decide people’s net worth. Bernie Sanders believes that by forcing rich people to send their money to the government, it would somehow reduce “extreme wealth inequality.” Most likely the wealth tax would make the rich poorer, politicians and bureaucrats richer, and the poor even poorer.

Utah University wants Students Reported for Politically Incorrect Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8636-Utah-University-wants-Students-Reported-for-Politically-Incorrect-Speech At Utah Valley University, a public university in a traditionally red state; faculty members have been given guidelines for reporting students to the university Behavior Assessment Team. Among offenses to be reported are being argumentative, loud, or make the university appear less “inclusive”. In other words, if a student makes a statement that offends someone or is otherwise politically incorrect they can be punished.

One professor, who chooses to remain anonymous, sees this is a tool of intimidation instead of inclusion, and that faculty members are afraid to speak out against the policy.

Politicizing of California Schools Continues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8635-Politicizing-of-California-Schools-Continues It is growing more apparent that in California education is not about preparing students to compete in the real world and get a job, but in preparing young people to be submissive and politically correct. In the San Francisco area, schools want to do away with the traditional grading system of A-F and have teachers write about the students mastery of a subject.

Many fear that this would allow teachers to grade students not on their actual knowledge of a subject like history, but whether they have a politically correct view of history. This will also make it harder for universities to evaluate students for admission and scholarships.

It turns out that Paul Manafort, who lived in Trump tower, and was Trump’s campaign manager for months was wiretapped under a FISA warrant obtained by the Department of Justice when Loretta Lynch was Attorney General.

This claim had been made before and was specifically denied by Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, in an interview. He said that he would have known about any FISA warrant and none had been issued. Now it is clear that one was issued under his watch.

She couldn’t find a way to blame it on Trump so she decided to use the old standby answer. She blamed it on the Russians.

Then after President Trump’s UN speech when he threatened to totally destroy North Korea if it attacked the United States or its allies, ABC News commentator Terry Moran became furious. Moran said that threatening to respond to an attack that way was a war crime.

It is designed to repeal Obamacare and take the money that would be used for it and give it to the states to be used to fund expansions of Medicaid or other healthcare programs.

Many governors support this concept, however, others don’t including some Republicans. Paul Ryan has assured Graham that if the Senate passes this the House will go along. However, at this point the Senate does not appear to have the 50 votes needed for passage.

Illinois’ Over Due Bills http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8628-Illinois’-Over-Due-Bills Illinois’ debt crisis is back. The state has accumulated $16 billion in unpaid bills. Even though state legislators passed a spending plan for fiscal 2018, the backlog of bills is growing. The state legislature authorized “the sale of up to $6 billion of general obligation bonds to pay bills from vendors and service providers.” According to Governor Rauner, the bond sales will not solve the state’s problem. “Lawmakers failed to set aside money to make principal and interest payments over the 12 years the debt would be outstanding.” The governor said that the state would have to cut half a billion dollars so the bond servicing requirements could be met. Rauner is planning to meet with legislative leaders to discuss a way forward. The state will have to issue the bonds by December 31. Illinois has the “lowest credit ratings” of any of the states. But it avoided junk status by passing the 2018 spending plan.

The company blamed debt and “a tough environment for bricks and mortar stores.” The company is seeking to restructure its $5 billion in long-term debt and create a capital structure that will allow it to grow. Lenders have agreed to pump more than $3 billion into the company. The added liquidity will allow the company to remain solvent for the crucial Christmas season “and support its ongoing operations during the court-supervised process.” During the first quarter of 2017, the company lost $164 million. It blamed “weakness in the baby category and slowing toy sales.” In 2000, Toys “R” Us partnered with Amazon to sell its toys but the deal was terminated four years later after the company sued Amazon for violating the terms of the deal. During the time of the deal, Toys “R” Us failed to create its own internet presence which has come to haunt the company. Lesson: Never rely on a sales platform that you don’t own.

Student Group To Protest Abortion Across the Nation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8626-Student-Group-To-Protest-Abortion-Across-the-Nation Students for Life of America (SFLA) is launching a national tour to bring the horror of abortion to the nation. The tour will go to six major cities in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky. The group will also visit at least 90 college campuses. At the National Press Club, SFLA president Kristan Hawkins criticized the Republican led Congress for not defunding Planned Parenthood. “Nothing has been done. It’s been almost a year since the election.” “The pro-life generation is sick of being told to wait until another election season has passed. We are expecting Congress to uphold their promises and stop subsidizing America’s largest abortion vendor.” Planned Parenthood committed 328,348 abortions in 2016. The taxpayer funded organization provided well over 100,000 fewer contraception services than in 2015 and showed a significant drop in cancer screenings and prenatal services. Planned Parenthood’s profit increased in 2016 as it zeroed in on abortion, its chief money making operation.

I believe that the greenhouse effect is real, that CO2 emissions generated by man is creating our greenhouse gas effect that traps heat, and the planet is warming.” So far Senator Graham is the only Republican in the Senate to endorse a carbon tax. Senator Graham is working with Democratic Senator Whitehouse on the tax legislation. The proposed tax would raise $2.1 trillion over 10 years. Carbon emissions would be taxed at $49 a ton. Republicans in the House Climate Solutions Caucus have not come out in favor of a carbon tax but might be persuaded to do so. While campaigning, the president opposed a carbon tax. Many conservative groups oppose a tax on carbon because it would increase the size of government and increase the cost of energy.

Wasteful Spending http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8623-Wasteful-Spending If Congress were serious about ending wasteful spending, it could save $2.3 trillion in a period of five years. Citizens Against Government Waste said the federal government could balance its budget in three years with the approach that it recommends. The non-partisan organization outlined “607 recommendations to cut inefficient government spending that would not only balance the budget within three years but also save taxpayers $336.2 billion in the first year.” Currently the national debt is over $20 trillion. Reducing “improper Medicare payments by 50 percent in five years” would save the government $20.6 billion. The Environmental Protection Agency could eliminate the Energy Star program and save $52 million in one year. By way of example, the Government Accountability Office “submitted 20 phony products for certification, 15 of which were cleared, including a gas-powered alarm clock.” Next time politicians complain about cutting taxes, they should look to their own mismanaged programs for extra money.

Last Attempt to Pass Repeal of Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8620-Last-Attempt-to-Pass-Repeal-of-Obamacare President Trump said that he supported the latest attempt to overturn Obamacare. A White House official said that the president would sign the legislation if it ever hits his desk. The Graham-Cassidy bill would replace Obamacare with block grants to the states. Republicans have until September 30 to pass the legislation. After the end of the fiscal year, Republicans would need Democratic support. The president called Senator Lindsey Graham at 10:30 Monday evening “to emphasize the importance of passing the bill.” House Speaker Paul Ryan said “I am encouraging every senator to vote for Graham-Cassidy, because it is our best, last chance to get repeal and replace done.” The Vice-President has been on Capitol Hill to lobby senators to support the repeal effort. Democrats are fearful of the plan because it would devolve federal involvement to the states. Democrats are pushing to patch and paper over Obamacare’s problems.

Right To Work Law Upheld in Wisconsin http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8619-Right-To-Work-Law-Upheld-in-Wisconsin Wisconsin’s Right to Work law is constitutional. The law’s implementation has been stopped by a lawsuit brought by the states largest labor union. The Wisconsin Court of Appeals said, “The Unions have no constitutional entitlement to the fees of non-member employees.” Unions argued that they would be required to represent workers “in a bargaining unit regardless of membership status.” The court of appeals said, “no property interest has been taken” and told the district court to dismiss the lawsuit. The National Right to Work Foundation said, “The constitutionality of right to work laws is a long settled question and Wisconsin union officials should stop wasting taxpayer dollars and worker’s dues money in their desperate attempt to restore their power to have workers fired simply for refusing to pay money as a condition of employment.” This was the second win for right to work laws this week. On Monday, West Virginia’s Supreme Court threw out a lower court’s injunction against the state’s right to work law.

Kellogg Foundation donates Millions to Left Wing Causes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8618-Kellogg-Foundation-donates-Millions-to-Left-Wing-Causes For most people the only thing they know about the Kellogg Company is that they make and sell cereals. However, there is another side to the corporation that is just being exposed. The W.W. Kellogg Foundation was originally founded to provide health care and healthy food to children in rural communities. However, it didn’t take long for it to start funding socialist causes, and that would probably have outraged the founder who was anti-socialist.

The foundation now works in conjunction with the Clinton Foundation, and liberal American hater George Soros to give millions to numerous left wing causes like the radical La Raza that wants to take back the southwestern U.S. for Mexico.

Hurricane Maria Reaches Category 5 Strength http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8617-Hurricane-Maria-Reaches-Category-5-Strength Hurricane Maria has reached category 5 strength with sustained winds of 160 miles per hour and is still heading directly for islands in the Caribbean including the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The governor of Puerto Rico says that there are over 400 shelters open on the island, and is calling for people in vulnerable areas to evacuate.

The American territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands both were hard hit by Hurricane Irma and are just starting to pick up the pieces. Another major hit that could be even worse will be catastrophic for the people and the economies of the islands.

Hillary Won’t Let It Go http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8616-Hillary-Won’t-Let-It-Go In what some people call another act of hypocrisy Hillary Clinton has stated in an interview that she may still be willing to challenge the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election. This is exactly what she criticized Donald Trump for during the campaign when he stated that he would have to wait and see the outcome before conceding the election without challenge. At the time Hillary called that response “un-American”.

Hillary was responding to a question about what she would do if the Russians were found to be more involved in the election than previously thought. Of course, there has still been no proof that there was any collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, or that the Russians did anything to actually influence the outcome.

Illegals Dispute Pelosi Press Conference http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8615-Illegals-Dispute-Pelosi-Press-Conference House minority leader Nancy Pelosi found herself in an unusual and unenviable position yesterday when her press conference in San Francisco was disrupted and effectively shut down by the very illegal aliens she has long defended. They surrounded her and the podium while waving posters and shouting “Liar! Liar!”. The crowd was angry over Pelosi and Chuck Schumer agreeing to work with President Trump on an immigration deal that would protect DACA, the so called “dreamers” act but strengthen border security.

The demonstrators were demanding that nobody in this country illegally ever be deported again essentially declaring the open borders that many on the left have been advocating. At one point Pelosi actually told the crowd to shut up, but it did no good.

Almost two hundred members of the faculty and graduate students have urged all students and staff to boycott the campus that week in order to “insure their physical and mental safety”.

They are called for all classes to be cancelled and buildings closed. In other words they want the campus shut down to prevent free speech. This will also penalize students to just want to go attend the classes and get the education they are paying the university for.

DOJ to Appeal Ruling on Sanctuary Cities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8613-DOJ-to-Appeal-Ruling-on-Sanctuary-Cities A liberal federal judge in San Francisco has declared that the executive order issued by President Trump restricting the giving of certain federal funds to sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities is illegal. The judge said that the order was probably unconstitutional and stayed its enforcement.

The Department of Justice has indicated it will appeal the ruling arguing that is constitutional and complies with current federal laws. It is also pointing out that it is an issue of protecting public safety since many of the illegals being protected and even released by sanctuary cities have committed additional crimes.

American Universities Pushing Segregation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8612-American-Universities-Pushing-Segregation For years American universities have been pushing the ideas of multicultural universities where diversity is celebrated and segregation is not allowed. However, it seems things have changed because now many universities are actively promoting segregation with programs that essentially say no whites need apply. There are orientations and graduations for minority students only along with segregated housing for black students only and black student safe spaces.

Now Brown University is following the lead of the Association of American Colleges and Universities and setting up special dinners for black students only and Muslim women only. Critics call this “Jim Crow” in reverse.

Florida Facing Infection Epidemic http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8611-Florida-Facing-Infection-Epidemic In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, residents of Florida are facing multiple problems. In many areas from Naples to Key West, there is no power or drinkable water and most of the houses and businesses were destroyed or severely damaged. In addition, there are many neighborhoods that are still heavily flooded. It is this standing water that is creating a whole new problem for people; the danger of infection.

This water is usually filthy with raw sewage in it and all types of possible toxic wastes. All of this adds up to creation of dangerous bacteria that can cause infections. People who are moving around in that water can develop serious infections very quickly if they even have a minor scratch. One person has already died and another lost a leg as a result of such infections.

The American people are fed up with being lectured by overpaid television and movie stars about how they are racists etc. for electing Donald Trump president and still supporting him, and his agenda.

Hurricane Maria Strengthens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8609-Hurricane-Maria-Strengthens Hurricane Maria is now a Category 5 storm. The storm was bearing down on Puerto Rico and islands in the Caribbean on Monday. Residents in the Caribbean were encouraged to look for shelter. Puerto Rico has been taking in evacuees from other islands. The White House declared a state of emergency on Puerto Rico and authorized FEMA and DHS to offer relief efforts. Puerto Rico is expected to suffer a direct hit from the storm. “We want to alert the people of Puerto Rico that this is not an event like we’ve ever seen before. It is time to seek refuge with a family member, friend or head to a state shelter,” said Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rosselló. “Flood-prone areas must be abandoned. If not, you will die,” said Public Security Secretary Héctor Pesquera. With winds over 160 miles per hour, the storm could create a storm surge of up to nine feet and bring up to 20 inches of rain to some areas.

Food Stamp Usage Falls http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8607--Food-Stamp-Usage-Falls Since President Trump took office in January, the use of SNAP benefits has fallen by over one million users to its lowest level since 2010. The biggest drops came in January and March. This is the time frame when states began to reimplement “work requirements to receive food stamps.” There may be other factors in play as well. The president’s budget proposes cuts to the food stamp program and suggests that states “match up to 20 percent of federal money allotted for the food stamp program.” Some members of Congress are working on legislation that would implement work requirements nationwide as well as “time limits on how long food stamp recipients can receive benefits.” As the president’s administration began cracking down on illegal immigration, “Many immigrants, both legal and illegal, canceled their food stamps over fears they might be denied citizenship or deported.”

Governor Moonbeam Attacks Trump Supporters http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8606-Governor-Moonbeam-Attacks-Trump-Supporters Governor Jerry Brown spoke at a climate change event in New York on Monday. Brown, who was called Governor Moonbeam in the mid-seventies, called President Trump’s supporters cave dwellers. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” In calling Trump supporters cave dwellers, the governor consigned 4.4 million voters in California to that status. Governor Brown has been a strong proponent of implementing policies to combat global climate change. He was opposed to President Trump leaving the Paris Climate Accords. He and several other governors around the country took the initiative to keep their states in compliance with the Accords. Earlier in September, Governor Brown went to Russia and spoke at a conference where he urged President Putin to “go green.”

Her press conference was crashed by a group of illegal aliens. Protesters “unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized.” “We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting nearly three million people, of our family members and loved ones. Where was your resistance then? Ms. Pelosi, did you think we would forget?” Protesters are furious that Pelosi and Schumer met with Trump. “You met with Trump, and you call that resistance?” Pelosi had spoken to Bay Area community leaders in support of her bill to legalize DACA. When the protestors disrupted her and would not let her control the microphone, Pelosi said, “It’s clear you don’t want any answers.”

According to the senator, the country cannot have a group of ‘permanent legal residents who weren’t eligible for citizenship.” He said “The next day Democrats … would be protesting the ‘separate but equal’ treatment and the ‘new Jim Crow.’” Cotton was in favor of codifying DACA “with restrictions on chain migration that allow the newly legalized beneficiaries to sponsor adult extended family members.” Senator Cotton went on to suggest that Congress should codify DACA as well as the RAISE Act that attempted to move admission preferences towards more skills-based immigrants. “Only on in fifteen come for employment reasons.” They “did not come because of a job offer or because of their skills.”

Another Effort To Overturn Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8603-Another-Effort-To-Overturn-Obamacare Republican’s latest effort to overturn Obamacare is getting closer to the 50 votes needed to pass the legislation. Under the legislation, Obamacare would be replaced with block grants to the states. Several Republican governors have come out in support of the bill. It would give them more freedom to craft healthcare solutions for their states instead of having to follow directives from Washington. Congress has 12 working days left to get the legislation passed under budget reconciliation rules. Senator McCain is one of the holdouts and could kill the bill just has he did to the last Republican attempt to overturn Obamacare. “The governor of Arizona is favorably inclined, but I am going to have to have a lot more information,” said Senator McCain. Senator Murkowski is also a questionable vote. She is studying it to see how it would affect Alaska. "I need to figure out how all the numbers work with regards to Alaska,"

The first warrant “allegedly focused on his work consulting for the government of Ukraine.” The second warrant “was allegedly part of the ongoing investigation into Russia’s election meddling and any ties between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.” The second warrant was after the election and included a time period where Manafort spoke to president-elect Trump. It is not known if the FBI captured conversations of Manafort and Trump. Earlier in 2016, President Trump accused former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower. Manafort’s house was raided by the FBI in July as a part of the FISA warrant. During the raid, Manafort was told by the FBI to expect an indictment.

During an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross, Clinton warmed up to the idea of challenging the legitimacy of the 2016 election. Clinton said, "I don't know if there's any legal constitutional way to do that. I think you can raise questions.” "Let me just put it this way, if I had lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College and in my first day as president the intelligence community came to me and said, ‘The Russians influenced the election,' I would've never stood for it.” "Even though it might've advantaged me, I would've said, ‘We've got to get to the bottom of this.' I would've set up an independent commission with subpoena power and everything else," Clinton said. If the Russian interference proves “deeper than we know now,” Hillary Clinton said that she would not rule out challenging the legitimacy of the election. “No, I wouldn’t rule that out,” said Clinton. During the campaign, candidate Clinton was critical of Donald Trump for not saying that he would accept the outcome of the election.

Stephen Colbert, the alleged comedian used most of his opening monologue to attack Trump and most of the presenters and award recipients followed suit.

From Alec Baldwin to Lily Tomlin the attacks on the President and America in general continued with only a handful of people refusing to participate. For a decade or more the ratings for the Emmys and the Oscars have continued to fall. Part of it is due to the fact that many people are bored with watching the Hollywood elite congratulate each other, but for many it is just being sick of their perverted politics.

The detonation of what the Kim Jong Un regime claims was a hydrogen bomb has resulted in unusual seismic activity in an active volcano on the North Korean border with China. The Mount Paektu volcano is a sacred site to the North Korean people, and scientists know that something is happening as a result of the nuclear test. A landside is a definite possibility, and one may already have occurred.

However, the fear of an eruption has prompted the Chinese to shut down access to a national nature preserve on the Chinese side of the border which is next to the volcano.

Symptoms include loss of hearing, headaches, mild brain trauma, and loss of cognitive ability among other things.

Iran Deal Up for Recertification in October http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8591-Iran-Deal-Up-for-Recertification-in-October The Iran deal will have to be rectified in October. The deal requires that Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action be certified to Congress every 90 days saying “that Iran is still complying with the agreement.” The president is being urged by his National Security Adviser and Secretary of State to “preserve the Iran deal at the next 90-day mark in October.” According to Sebastian Gorka, President Trump “didn’t want it rectified last time.” But he stuck with the plan “because he hadn’t been given any adequate” alternative to the agreement. Former UN ambassador John Bolton was asked by Steve Bannon to prepare a “game plan” for withdrawing from the agreement. But that plan never was presented after Bannon and Gorka were forced out of the White House. Bolton’s plan advises the president to make telephone calls to key allies warning them of the decision to end the agreement. Bolton’s plan then suggested that the president “undergo an expanded diplomatic campaign aimed at rallying support around the world for new sanctions against Iran once the deal was no longer in place. Gorka said that the president will “ultimately make his own decision, regardless” the counsel of his national security team.

Amidst rumors of an imminent bankruptcy filing, “nervous suppliers have scaled back shipments and tightened terms to the retailer ahead of the crucial holiday selling season.” The cost of insuring “shipments to cash-strapped Toys ‘R’ Us has become too expensive.” Suppliers are worried that they may never get paid if the company enters bankruptcy. They are demanding payment up front. Toys ‘R’ Us makes 40% of its sales doing the holiday season. The company negotiates “exclusive products from key vendors, along with support for advertising and marketing.” One key supplier, Hasbro, has not curtailed toy shipments to Toys ‘R’ Us. The company says, “We continue to partner and hip, conducting business as usual, while managing our risk across all retailers tot he appropriate levels.”

Leftist Trustees Direct Millions to Leftist Organizations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8589-Leftist-Trustees-Direct-Millions-to-Leftist-Organizations The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was founded “to provide health care, healthy foods, and services for children in rural areas of the country.” The foundation was not given precise instruction on how to achieve that plan. Kellogg vaguely told future trustees to “use the money as you please so long as it promotes the health, happiness, and well-being of children.” Trustees have used the foundation’s money to support many left-wing causes. Millions have been donated to La Raza which wants to “reclaim” America’s southwest for Mexico. The foundation has given nearly $1 million to Black Lives Matter and $200,000 to George Soros’s Open Society Institute. The Center for American Progress has received more than $5 million since 2013. The Foundation has not strayed completely from W.K. Kellogg’s vision. It has given millions to “hospitals, schools, and youth centers, especially in rural and underprivileged areas.”

California Votes To Move Presidential Primary http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8588-California-Votes-To-Move-Presidential-Primary California’s legislature passed a bill that would move the state’s primary to March. This would align the state’s primary with Super Tuesday when many states hold presidential primaries. In 2008, California moved its presidential primary to March for one year so that it would have more say in which presidential candidate was chosen. The primary was returned to June in 2011. The earlier experiment did not have the desired effect of “generating presidential interest.” The new legislation would move all of California’s primaries to March to avoid having a presidential primary in March and state primaries in June. By consolidating the primaries, it resolves one of Governor Brown’s concerns about cost. It’s expected but not guaranteed that more liberal candidates would do well in California and have a better shot at the nomination. In 2008 Hillary Clinton won California, but Obama went on to win the nomination.

Saudi Crown Prince Gains Power http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8587-Saudi-Crown-Prince-Gains-Power Saudi Arabia’s recently installed crown prince is consolidating his power. Mohamed bin Salman is “stamping out traces of internal dissent before any formal transfer of power from his 81-year-old father King Salman.” About twenty-four people, including clerics, were arrested last week in an effort to crackdown on dissent. Dissenters oppose bin Salman’s “aggressive foreign policy that includes the boycott of . . . .Qatar as well as . . . privatizing state assets and cutting subsidies.” The former crown prince has been under house arrest since he was replaced by bin Salman. The 32-year-old crown prince may end up ruling Saudi Arabia for the next half-century. In an effort to gain the support of the country’s younger generation, bin Salman is “putting sports and entertainment on the cutting edge of his reform effort.” The prince wants to move the country away from oil dependency and “develop the kingdom’s industrial and investment base to generate more private-sector jobs for young Saudis.” Analysts believe that the King may abdicate sometime in 2018 in favor of bin Salman.

Roy Moore Continues To Lead In Alabama Race http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8586-Roy-Moore-Continues-To-Lead-In-Alabama-Race President Trump will campaign for incumbent Senator Luther Strange this coming Saturday. The president tweeted, “I will be in Huntsville, Alabama, on Saturday night to support Luther Strange for Senate. ‘Big Luther’ is a great guy who gets things done!” Currently Judge Roy Moore is leading by double digits in the GOP primary runoff according to a recent survey. “Mitch McConnell’s gang can put out all the fake news polls they want, but every single independent pollster has shown Roy Moore with at least a ten point lead,” said a strategist. It’s questionable that the president will be able to affect Luther Strange’s standing in the polls. 83 percent of Republicans view the president “somewhat or very favorable.” But Republican voters don’t care that the president has endorsed Strange “and won’t vote for Strange anyway.” Senator Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund has spent millions to support Strange. Representative Mo Brooks came in third in the first primary. He later endorsed Roy Moore and is campaigning for him throughout Alabama.

The two leaders reviewed North Korea’s most recent launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile that flew over Japan and landed in the Pacific. A statement from the White House said, “President Trump and President Moon committed to continuing to take steps to strengthen deterrence and defense capabilities and to maximize economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea. The two leaders noted that they will continue their close consultations next week when they meet on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly.” Sunday morning, President Trump tweeted that he’d spoken with South Korea’s president, adding, “Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!” President Trump will address the United Nations later in the week. He is expected to call upon the Security Council for harsher sanctions.

American’s Attacked With Acid in France http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8584--American’s-Attacked-With-Acid-in-France Four American female college students were attacked with a cleaning substance that contained hydrochloric acid while at a train station in Marseilles, France on Sunday. A 41-year-old woman was arrested as the suspected assailant. Police called the attacker “disturbed” but they did not go so far as to call it a terrorist attack. According to police the attacker “did not make any extremist threats or declarations.” France’s “counter-terrorism division had decided for the time being not to assume jurisdiction for investigating the attack.” The four American women were treated at a local hospital, “two of them for shock.” And one of them for impaired vision. Two of the women were “slightly injured.” By mid-afternoon, they had been released from the hospital. One of the Americans, Courtney Siverling, wrote, “I pray that the attacker would be healed from her mental illness in the name of Jesus and receive the forgiveness and salvation that can only come from Him.”

The Value Of Donald Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8583-The-Value-Of-Donald-Trump As divisive and controversial President Trump is, he is almost single handily upholding the value of Twitter. “There is no better free advertising in the world than the president of the United States.” Were Twitter to ban the president, it is estimated that Twitter would lose twenty percent of its market value, according to analyst James Cakmak. Cakmak believes that by “losing its most prominent user” the “intangible value” of Twitter would “lead to what’s known as multiple compression.” According to Twitter, “daily active users rose 12 percent in the second quarter, compared with the same period in 2016.” As good as the president is for Twitter, the company is unable to monetize his value. According to Bloomberg, Twitter’s shares have lost 14 percent of their value since Trump won the presidency. Cakmak says, “What’s most important is the execution of the right strategy, since at the present state we find Twitter not capitalizing on the opportunity that’s in front of them.”

Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?” Yale University has decided to drop the terms “freshman” and “upperclassman” after getting demands for “greater gender inclusivity.” “Freshman” will now be called “first year” and “upperclassman” will now be called “upper-level students.” Marvin Chun, a dean at the university, says “We’re not trying to be language police. It’s really for public, formal correspondence and formal publications . . . we’re not trying to tell people what language to use in their everyday casual conversations.” The new language will be incorporated into Yale’s “Undergraduate handbook of regulations.” The tuition and fees to attend Yale for the 2017-2018 academic year is $51,400. Add in another $19,170 to live on campus and get the full experience.

London Threat Level Now At ‘Critical’ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8581-London-Threat-Level-Now-At-‘Critical’ The terror threat in London was raised to critical in the aftermath of a bombing on the London subway. Raising the threat level to critical might indicate the future attacks are imminent. Soldiers have been brought in to replace local police. A terror suspect set off a bucket bomb on a crowded commuter train Friday morning. At least 29 people were injured by the blast, suffering burns as the fireball went through the train car. Injuries include “scorched hands, legs, faces and hair.” Other injuries were caused as people rushed to escape the train. One passenger described the situation saying, 'It was a very busy commuter train, young and old, school children going to their schools. I saw was nannies trying to look for kids, because of the rush of people just taking five and six year olds away from them and they were trying to look for them. Authorities believe the bomb failed to explode as it was intended. Police used CCTV footage to identify a suspect but so far have not named the person. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bombing.

More Counties Will Have No Obamacare Exchange http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8580-More-Counties-Will-Have-No-Obamacare-Exchange In 2018, there could be 63 counties in the United States with no insurer that is a part of the Obamacare exchange. 70,000 Americans live in those counties. In another 1,472 counties there will be only one insurer for 2.6 million exchange participants. Anthem and Aetna told lawmakers that they were not confident about their future participation in the Obamacare exchanges. The uncertainty about payments to prop up the failing system was one area of evidence company officials pointed to. Under the law, Americans who do not have health insurance and where there is no provider available under the exchange, they would still have to pay a penalty for being uninsured. Senators Alexander and Corker have introduced the Health Care Options Act of 2017 to waive the penalty in such situations. It would also allow Americans who had received a subsidy to use the subsidy to purchase healthcare from companies not on the exchange.

CIA Director Pompeo said that the files would be declassified over the next several weeks and released to the public. “Once we are sure that there’s not classified material and that there’s not things that we can’t release, I want to make sure the world gets to see them so that we can have lots of hands touching them and making good judgments about how to make sure that we don’t have a 9/11, that we don’t have this kind of risk again.” The documents include “family letters, papers on Islamic history, books, and notes about al-Qaeda’s operations.” The government released an earlier tranche of files seized in the raid. Those files showed bin Laden’t “fear of surveillance and obsession with attacking the West.”

Avoiding Free Speech at Berkeley http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8578-Avoiding-Free-Speech-at-Berkeley Faculty and professors at US Berkeley are calling for a suspension of classes and activities during “free speech week.” “As faculty we cannot ask student and staff to choose between risking their physical and mental safety in order to attend class or come to work in an environment of harassment, intimidation, violence, and militarized policing.” The conservative publication, Berkeley Patriot, has invited Anne Coulter, Steve Bannon, and Milo Yiannopoulos to speak during free speech week. The faculty and staff members who wrote the letter acknowledged the constitutional requirement to allow all viewpoints on campus. "We recognize that as a public institution, we are legally bound by the Constitution to allow all viewpoints on campus. However, there are forms of speech that are not protected under the First Amendment. These include speech that presents imminent physical danger and speech that disrupts the university's mission to educate." The letter writers apparently did not recognize that there would be no disruption on campus if leftists did not resort to violent tactics to shut down speech they oppose.

When Chanting “USA” is Okay http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8577-When-Chanting-“USA”-is-Okay Chanting “USA” at hight school sporting events could be offensive. Officials at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom, California said that chanting “USA” could send an “unintended message.” In an email to parents, the school principal said that it would “make sense” for the “USA” to be chanted after such “patriotic events such as the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.” But if it were chanted “during competitive events” it might be misconstrued. Senior Ryan Bernal said, “To say USA, you know, we’re all the same. We’re all American. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone is or where you’re from.” School officials say they did not ban the chanting of “USA” but instead said that the discussion was about teaching students “empathy.” In other school districts, critics have complained about patriotic symbols being used by students because they could be seen as promoting “white supremacy” and “nationalism.”

Sanctuary Cities Win Injunction Against DOJ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8576-Sanctuary-Cities-Win-Injunction-Against-DOJ A federal court in Chicago issued an injunction against the Department of Justice’s effort to deny funding to “jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.” Judge Harry Leinenweber ruled that the Attorney General “exceeded his authority” to impose new conditions on cities which received grant funding for police departments. The Department of Justice issued guidelines in July that only allowed grants to those “jurisdictions that allow federal immigration officers into detention facilities and provide 58 hours’ notice before releasing inmates wanted by federal authorities.” The Chicago lawsuit argued that the guidelines would “infringe upon the independence of local law-enforcement agencies” as well as “undermine the inroads police . . . have made in gaining trust from immigrant communities.” Judge Leinenweber ruled that Attorney General Sessions had attempted an “unprecedented seizure of power.” The injunction means that Chicago’s police department will now be able to receive $2.3 million in grant money.

McCain Supporting Transgender Military Personnel http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8575-McCain-Supporting-Transgender-Military-Personnel Senator John McCain is backing a bipartisan effort to overturn the president’s ban on transgender soldiers. The senator said, “When less than one percent of Americans are volunteering to join the military, we should welcome all those who are willing and able to serve our country.” “Any member of the military who meets the medical and readiness standards should be allowed to serve — including those who are transgender.” The legislations “would prohibit the Pentagon from involuntarily separating or denying the re-enlistment of currently serving transgender troops solely on the basis of gender identity.” The president’s ban “prohibits the military from enlisting transgender people and from using funds to pay for gender transition-related surgery.” The Defense Secretary has six months to determine how to deal with transgender troops who are currently in the military. To date, four lawsuits have been filed in the federal courts in an effort to halt the implementation of the ban.

Senator Bill Cassidy predicted, “I am pretty confident we’ll get there on the Republican side. We’re probably at 48-49 [votes] and talking to two or three more.” Senator Rand Paul announced his opposition to the proposed legislation because it keeps too much of ObamaCare. The legislation would give more power to the states. It would end ObamaCare “funding for subsidies to help people afford coverage and funding for the Medicaid expansion, instead converting both pots of money into a block grant to states.” Democrats see the bill as a real threat. They argue that the block grants would be “too small and would lead to cuts in Medicaid and other health spending.”

And all those other restrictions on reproductive rights.” According to LifeNews, the Hyde Amendment may have save as many as “one million children from abortion.” If Democrats get their way on ending the Hyde Amendment “an estimated 33,000 more unborn babies” will be killed by abortion every year.

Senators sent a letter to Secretary of State Tillerson outlining their demands. “Our officials and their families have been the targets of unacceptable levels of harassment and ‘acoustic’ attacks that, in some cases, have caused permanent hearing damage and other significant injuries.” Expelling Cuban diplomats and closing the American embassy would effectively reverse most of the “efforts to normalize diplomatic relations.” Sixteen Americans have suffered damages including permanent hearing loss, sleeplessness, damaged brain function and cognitive abilities.

In addition, 48% of the respondents did not know that freedom of speech was one of those rights. The survey also reported that only 26% of respondents could name all three branches of the United States Government and 33% could not even name one branch.

This is unfortunately similar to a survey conducted in the early 1990’s where 25% of college graduates surveyed thought the First Amendment protected their right to own a pet. The bottom line for researchers is that the education of civics in our schools is totally inadequate.

This is ironic since Berkeley claims to be the cradle of free speech. However, the concept of free speech for many on the campus means that only those people that agree with their left wing agenda should be allowed to express themselves.

Unfortunately, the continued investigation by the American State Department and other agencies seems no closer to finding the cause of the illnesses, or who may be behind it.

Most people seem to think it is some type of acoustic attack, but other experts point out that it is happening in multiple locations, including a recently reopened hotel, and the victims are sometimes targeted with laser like efficiency.

Ten sailors were killed in the incident and seven others died in a similar incident involving the USS Fitzgerald.

However, the Fitzgerald crash is not under investigation as a hacking incident. If the McCain accident was in fact the result of a cyber-attack it will expose a critical vulnerability in U.S. naval operations that will have be addressed immediately.

NFL Facing Uncertain Future http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8566-NFL-Facing-Uncertain-Future The National Football League has just had one of the worst opening weekends in the history of the professional league. Some stadiums were less than half full and less people were watching on television. This translates into lost revenue both for the league and individual teams. Part of the reason for less ticket sales is the ever escalating cost of tickets and food and drinks at the games.

However, it is also partly due to the NFL following the lead of ESPN and trying to use sports to indoctrinate Americans with the liberal political philosophy that trashes police officers, the American flag, and the National Anthem. The league also threatened entire states like Texas with loss of any future super bowls if the passed laws against mandatory transgender bathrooms. The bottom line seems to be that Americans are getting fed up and are tuning the NFL out.

Japanese military officials have seen evidence of the North Koreans moving a launcher that is capable of launching the massive ICBM. This is just another example of how fast the north is advancing its capabilities. The launch last night may have been the one predicted.

He did it before he interviewed the last witness.” As a former federal prosecutor, Gowdy believes that prosecutors hold off making conclusions until all the evidence is in and witnesses have been interviewed. “If there’s anything that’s axiomatic in investigations it’s that you don’t make up your mind until you interview the last witness. it is beyond dispute that h made up his mind not to charge Secretary Clinton before he interviewed her.” Gowdy said that there is evidence that Comey made up his mind before he’d “interviewed the last dozen witnesses.” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said this week that Comey is guilty. Gowdy cautioned that if the White House has evidence of wrongdoing, it needs to be referred to the Department of Justice. “Alleging criminal violations is very serious which is why I don’t do it,” said Gowdy.

Visiting Fellow Offer Withdrawn http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8562-Visiting-Fellow-Offer-Withdrawn Harvard University offered Bradley Manning a visiting fellow position but withdrew the offer after getting push back from CIA Director Mike Pompeo and former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell. Morell issued a letter to the Dean of the Kennedy School saying that he could not “associate himself with an organization ‘that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.’” “Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, and entity that CIA Director Mike Pompeo says operates like an adversarial foreign intelligence service,” continued Morell. In Pompeo’s letter he said, “I believe it is shameful for Harvard to place its stamp approval upon [Manning’s] treasonous actions.” Douglas W. Elmendorf, Dean of the Kennedy School, said, “I now think that designating . . . Manning as a visiting fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility.” He continued, “But I see more clearly now that many people view a Visiting Fellow title as an honorific, so we should weigh that consideration when offering invitations.”

Bill Would Require Presidential Candidates to Release Tax Returns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8561-Bill-Would-Require-Presidential-Candidates-to-Release-Tax-Returns The California State Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would require presidential candidates to release their tax returns prior to being placed on California’s ballot. The Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act passed on a 42 — 18 vote. It will now go to the state Senate for a vote. Democrat Senator Mike McGuire declared, “President Trump’s blatant disregard for the tradition of releasing tax returns is dangerous to our democracy. For decades, every President has put there personal beliefs aside and put our country first and released their returns.” The bill would require that a presidential candidate release five previous years worth of tax returns. Senator Scott Wiener said the bill was about “giving the American people the honesty and transparency they deserve.” New York lawmakers introduced similar legislation earlier this year. Candidate Trump was the first candidate in several years to not release his returns.

North Korea Launches Missile Over Japan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8560-North-Korea-Launches-Missile-Over-Japan Shortly after testing a nuclear weapon underground early last week, North Korea fired a missile over Japan. The missile flew 2,300 miles before falling into the Pacific Ocean. This is the second missile to be fired over Japan since late August. The governments of Japan and South Korea convened “emergency national security council meetings” to formulate a response. Japan issued emergency alerts and used its siren warning system. The government encouraged citizens to take cover. South Korea responded by “conducting a simulated strike of the North Korean launch site, an air base near Pyongyang.” Last week the UN Security Council issued a new round of sanctions on North Korea. Although President Trump applauded the new sanctions, he questioned “whether the ‘very small step’ would have ‘any impact’ on its nuclear program.”

Trump Base Unhappy With President’s Direction on Amnesty http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8559-Trump-Base-Unhappy-With-President’s-Direction-on-Amnesty Last week President Trump thrilled supporters by ending the Obama era DACA executive order. Under the Obama administration 800,000 “young people brought into the country illegally” were allowed to stay in the United States and work “without fear of deportation.” This week, the president reached an agreement with Minority Leaders Schumer and Pelosi “that would extend protection to the so-called Dreamers in exchange for promises to enhance border security.” President Trump did not ask for funding for a border wall saying instead that it could be part of a later bill. Now Trump voters have exploded. Republican Representative Steve King tweeted, “Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.” Trump supporters burned their Make America Great Again hats and posted their pictures and videos to social media. Ann Coulter tweeted, “At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?” Trump promised to put Americans first. His new found love for working with Democrats on illegal aliens contradicts that campaign promise.

Navy Sends in Cyber Investigation Unit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8558-Navy-Sends-in-Cyber-Investigation-Unit The U.S. Navy sent its Cyber Command 10th Fleet as well as technical experts to investigate the USS John McCain collision. Investigators will look into whether or not there was an intrusion into the ship’s software. “We have no indications or reason to believe that there was a malicious cyber attack that had an effect on either [USS] Fitzgerald or McCain, but we’ve assembled a team … to go out on the ground and look for and assess any anomalous activity that may exist onboard John S. McCain,” said Vice Admiral Jan Tighe. The admiral went on to say that investigating cyber intrusions will become a “normal step in probing vessel collisions.” President Trump elevated Cyber Command to a unified combatant command status in August in acknowledgement of the increased threat of the cyber threat. The Navy is conducting a broader investigation into “naval procedures and training” to better understand what contributed to the collisions of the Fitzgerald and McCain.

Susan Rice Changes Her Story http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8557-Susan-Rice-Changes-Her-Story Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice “admitted to lawmakers last week that she unmasked Trump transition team officials.” This comes months after she told PBS Newshour that she knew “nothing about” unmasking. During a meeting with the House Intelligence Committee, she requested the unmasking because she needed “to understand why the Emrati crown prince was visiting New York late last year.” “She said the Obama administration ‘felt misled’ by the United Arab emirates, who had not mentioned that the crown price was visiting the country.” An unidentified UAE representative disputed Susan Rice’s account of misleading the Obama administration. Instead calling it “an effort to build a relationship with senior members of the Trump team who would be working in the administration.” The admission by Rice is evidence that “Trump transition team members were indeed caught up in surveillance of a foreign target.”

Will The Deep State Invade Venezuela? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8556-Will-The-Deep-State-Invade-Venezuela? Venezuela stopped accepting the U.S. dollar as payment for oil. “Oil traders who export Venezuelan crude or import oil products into the country have begun converting their invoices to euros,” reports the Wall Street Journal. Last week, President Maduro warned of this course of action. “Venezuela is going to implement a new system of international payments and will create a basket of currencies to free us from the dollar.” This comes after the Trump administration placed sanctions on Venezuela. Other countries have been trying to find a way to stop using the U.S. dollar in international trade. China is buying oil from Russia and Iran and paying in yuan and making the yuan convertible to “gold on a spot basis on the Shanghai Gold Exchange.” The United States has been able to spend itself into a $20 trillion hole because of the agreement that “Henry Kissinger worked out with Saudi Arabia in 1974, after Nixon abandoned gold.”

Not One To Miss The Good Life http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8555-Not-One-To-Miss-The-Good-Life Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin apparently believes that he’s entitled to a taxpayer funded good life. For his honeymoon to Europe in August, Mnuchin asked that he and his new wife be flown in an Air Force jet. Of course he carefully cited national security reasons for his cover. Reasons like secure communications, international issues ranging from Iran to Venezuela, to North Korea. The request was later withdrawn when it more affordable solutions presented themselves. Had the government provided his taxpayer funded ride, it would have cost taxpayers $25,000 an hour. Mnuchin however managed to show up in a “government aircraft” with his wife at Fort Knox to inspect what remains of the nation’s gold on August 21. Just by coincidence, Fort Knox was in the solar eclipse totality zone. The Treasury Secretary and his wife were able to view the eclipse from the fort. The Inspector General’s office is now looking at all requests for aircraft by the Treasury Secretary to determine if all laws and policies were observed.

Bernie Sanders’ Magical Unicorn http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8554-Bernie-Sanders’-Magical-Unicorn Senator Bernie Sanders introduced his single-payer healthcare plan on Wednesday. It was only a partial bill. He left out one teeny tiny detail — the funding mechanism. Apparently that glaring oversight will be in a separate bill. Back in 1987, Bernie Sanders was a bit more honest about the consequences of funding healthcare-for-all than he is these days. In an interview with Canadian Doctor Miltion Terris, Bernie Sanders says, “I think what we understand is that unless we change the funding system and the control mechanism in this country to do that for example, if we expanded Medicaid to everybody. Give everybody a Medicaid card — we would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation.” What’s happened in the thirty years since that interview? Have new treasure troves of money magically appeared? Bernie Sanders’ plan will likely mean higher income taxes for American families and higher taxes on small businesses. It will mean more money diverted diverted out of the economy and sent to Washington where bureaucrats and politicians will spend like there is no tomorrow.

Comic Books Become Organs for Political Propaganda http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8553-Comic-Books-Become-Organs-for-Political-Propaganda Many older Americans remember growing up with comic books that were meant to delight and entertain their young audiences. Many of them were cartoons with stories about the adventures of characters like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck while others featured super heroes like Superman, Batman, and Spiderman. The later often extolled such virtues as “truth, justice, and the American way”.

However, in the last few years that has changed with comic books becoming vehicles for left wing propaganda directed at our children, The most recent example is the Superman comic showing the hero protecting poor illegal immigrants from a violent “white supremacist” who is wearing an American flag bandana.

Many of them fly thousands of miles a year for business or pleasure and have multiple cars and homes that use many times the energy of the average American family.

This includes people like Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Beyonce, and Barbara Streisand. Their point is obvious, the unwashed masses must reduce their use of fuel and switch to alternative more expensive sources of energy, but the rich and famous have no such obligation.

These are the same Hollywood stars who told Americans that if they voted for Trump they were racists, sexists, islamophobic etc. ESPN’s so called sportscasters lecture Americans on the need for gun control, and are anti police, and treat citizens like ignorant peasants.

The main stream media is even worse, and Americans are rebelling. The summer movie releases by Hollywood have mostly tanked at the box offices, movie theater stocks are tanking, ESPN is losing thousands of viewers and subscribers while liberal newspapers and networks are being mostly ignored.

Amazon Becoming Blatantly Political http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8550-Amazon-Becoming-Blatantly-Political The Amazon Company’s website that is owned by Jeff Bezos, who also owns the ultra-liberal Washington Post, has long shown a political bias against conservative writers and in favor of liberals. Advertising of books that lean to the right is often refused and some books are removed from the site as e-books.

Amazon always had some kind of explanation for this type of behavior but it will have a tough time explaining what is occurring with Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What happened?” in the last 48 hours. Shortly after the book was released there were about 80 reviews fairly evenly divided between positive and negative although the majority were negative. By Wednesday almost all of the negative one star reviews had been removed and out of 496 reviews 96% were 5 star reviews with only 2% being 1 star. One news outlet has reported that at least 900 negative reviews have been removed.

A heavy police presence is being deployed because since the election of Donald Trump violent protestors, many of them non students bused in by radical groups like ANTIFA. have prevented free speech on the campus.

The mayor of the city has grown tired of the violence and recently called for ANTIFA to be declared a criminal street gang. He has also authorized the police force to be equipped with pepper spray to quell the violence.

Assault on American Heritage Intensifies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8547-Assault-on-American-Heritage-Intensifies In the past few days, protestors from groups like Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, and the openly communist Workers World Party have intensified. At the University of Virginia so called protestors covered the statue of Thomas Jefferson in a black shroud proclaiming him a racist and a rapist.

In Baltimore the statue of Francis Scott Key, the author of our national anthem was defaced with the Star Spangled Banner being called a racist anthem. According to some on the left this is based on wording in the third stanza that states in part: “No refuge could save, hireling or slave, of terror or flight, or gloom of the grave”. Most historians agree that the use of the terms hireling and slave refer to the British use of mercenaries, and involuntary impressed men in its army and navy.

Instead, many Democrat leaders like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren continue to advocate what amounts to outright socialism.

Sanders has introduced a single payer bill and called it the “Medicare for all” bill. However, the bottom line is that whatever they call it, the concept is still socialized medicine that has been a spectacular failure in every country where it has been adopted. The vast majority of Americans do not want the government to make their health care decisions.

The regulations impose severe “fines for persons associated with underground religious communities not authorized by the state, which have no legal standing in the country.” Fines may range from 20,000 to 300,000 yuan. China’s communist government fears that freedom of religion is a threat to “national security and public health, [a threat] to ethnic and national unity, and the possibility of terrorist activities.” The number of Christians in China may now be greater than “the number of members in the Chinese Communist party.” “There are an estimated 100 million Christians in China.” There are 85 million members of China’s Communist Party. Christianity is growing the fastest in “unofficial Protestant ‘house churches’ and in the underground Catholic church.’”

President Want Quick Action on Amnesty http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8542-President-Want-Quick-Action-on-Amnesty President Trump signaled that if Congress legalizes the 800,000 illegal aliens currently protected by DACA, he will support it. The president agreed to the legislation without pushing for any immigration reforms or funding for a border wall. According to Representative Henry Cuellar, President Trump said “We don’t have to tie a wall to this. We can put a wall [in another bill].” According to Cuellar, the president does not want to wait until DACA expires in March. Waiting until the end would make it more difficult for Congress to act. Instead, the president wants to act “when people are not expecting it.” Rosemary Jenks, a spokeswoman with NumbersUSA, said that “any immigration deal on DACA that includes amnesty would be an ‘outrageous selling out of the [Trump] base.’” The Center for Immigration Studies warned that amnesty would create a “surge in illegal immigration” and “a surge in legal immigration, as newly amnestied DACA recipients would be able to bring their relatives to the U.S.”

Democrats Winning Local Races http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8541-Democrats-Winning-Local-Races Early signs of a 2018 Democratic electoral wave may be forming. Republicans have dominated local races for the last several election cycles. Republican domination has led to control of a majority of the state houses. However, since Trump’s victory in November, Democrats are focusing increasingly on local state races. Local Democrats are performing far better than Hillary Clinton did in those districts. “On Tuesday, Democrat Jacob Rosencrants took 60 percent of the vote in a state House district in Norman, Oklahoma, where Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by ten points last November.” Then in New Hampshire, a Democrat “won a state House seat in a district . . . that Trump won by 16 points last year.” Trump’s win has motivated Democrats to turn out their voters. Director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee said, “Our wins send a clear message to Republicans everywhere that no matter how red the district is, you can’t hide from the shadow cast by the Trump administration.”

Clinton said that she has had women come up to her since the election confessing their failure to get out and vote or to do more to get Clinton elected. The unpersonable former candidate said that it is “‘hard’ for her to offer ‘comfort’” to others. "When it first started happening it was so soon after the election, and the election was so bizarre and close. It was hard for me to, you know comfort somebody who was coming to me and saying, ‘oh, I wish I'd done more,' or ‘I'm sorry I didn't vote.' Because I think this was one of the most consequential elections that we have faced in a long time," she said. “So no absolution. But of course I just hope people will take what happened this time seriously and being ready and willing to vote the next time.”

The legislation reforms regulations on silencers, adds “further protections for interstate transport of firearms,” protects “certain firearms and ammunition from reclassification in order to make them illegal,” and finally increases “access to federal public lands for hunting and fishing.” The passage of the bill was praised by the National Rifle Association. “Today marks an important step in protecting the Second Amendment freedoms of America’s hunters and sportsmen and strengthening our outdoor heritage,” said the NRA’s Chris Cox. The “legislation would treat silencers as common firearms and require background checks in order to buy one from a licensed gun dealer.” The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives said that there are “44 silencer-related crimes per year over the past decade. That means about .003 percent of registered silencers are used in crimes each year.” No date has been scheduled for the SHARE Act to be voted on by the full House.

During a floor debate, Senator Paul pointed out that the White House is using the original war authorizations as a basis to extend the war to other countries that “Congress never voted to support.” Senators who opposed the amendment agreed that Congress needs to pass a new authorization. However, the senators disagreed with Paul’s approach. “’You can't replace something with nothing. And we have nothing,’ said Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island, the top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee.” Senator Bob Corker agreed that Congress needs to pass legislation for a new war authorization and pledged that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee would do so soon. Senator Paul’s amendment was defeated 61 to 36.

53 Percent of California Democrats Oppose Free Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8535-53-Percent-of-California-Democrats-Oppose-Free-Speech In the aftermath of violent protests in Charlottesville and in Berkeley, 53 percent of California Democrats “believe we have gone too far in allowing those demonstrations.” The poll was conducted by UC Berkeley, home of the free speech movement. Mark DiCamillo conducted the poll and commented, “I would have thought the liberals would be defending the right to demonstrate in general.” Apparently Democrats are willing to shut down and restrict the free speech rights of people with whom they disagree. Jan Soule, president of the Silicon Valley Association of Republican Women said, “The left has always been hypocritical. They continue to say we have free speech as long as we agree with what they say. Free speech does not extend to conservatives.” The poll comes as conservative writer and speaker Ben Shapiro prepares to deliver a speech Thursday on the Berkeley campus.

Kid Rock’s Senate Run Scaring Liberals to Death http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8534-Kid-Rock’s-Senate-Run-Scaring-Liberals-to-Death Popular rock star Kid Rock is apparently running as a Republican for the United States Senate in Michigan and the liberals are going crazy. He is known for his unconventional style, his often colorful language, and his support for tea party candidates. Liberal groups and the notoriously left wing Detroit Free Press are trying to do the same thing to everyone that they disagree with, silence him.

They are going so far as to try and keep him from performing in his hometown of Detroit, where he is extremely popular. He often donate much of his money from these concerts to businesses and charities in the city, but most of them have apparently succumbed to leftist pressure and are not coming to his defense. They will receive no more donations so in order to be politically correct they will punish the very people they are supposed to be helping. None of this will stop the Kid.

SCOTUS Sides with Trump on Travel Ban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8533-SCOTUS-Sides-with-Trump-on-Travel-Ban In an unsigned opinion yesterday, the United States Supreme Court upheld most of the travel ban imposed by President Trump on refugees coming into the United States from countries considered dangerous because of their inability to provide information allowing the U.S. to vet the refugees. The ruling reverses a decision by the notoriously left wing Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that had upheld a lower court ruling declaring the ban unconstitutional.

The court is scheduled to hear full arguments on the case in October, but since the ban is temporary it may expire before the hearing unless the President decides to renew it.

Millions in Florida Still Without Power http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8532-Millions-in-Florida-Still-Without-Power The chaos in Florida continues as millions of Floridians struggle through massive traffic jams to return to their homes after the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma. Unfortunately, many of them are finding their homes severely damaged or completely destroyed. In addition, millions of people are without power or water, and in some areas like the islands that make up the Florida Keys it may be weeks or even months before power is restored.

The situation in Florida is a humanitarian crisis just like the continuing situation in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana, but is compounded by the scope of territory covered by the disaster.

Seattle Mayor Resigns over Sex Allegations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8531-Seattle-Mayor-Resigns-over-Sex-Allegations For several months liberal Democrat Mayor of Seattle Ed Murray has been under fire for allegations of child abuse by multiple individuals. He has refused to resign and his fellow liberals on the city council have refused to take any action against him. Now the people of the city have apparently had enough.

When a fifth allegation of sexual child abuse emerged the mayor finally resigned, but continued to deny the allegations. His position will be assumed by the City Council President who can choose to serve until the November election. Under Murray’s leadership Seattle has prided itself on being a sanctuary city, but unfortunately is now accused of being a sanctuary for a pedophile.

This coincides with members of the left wing calling for skeptics of global warming and climate change to be declared criminals and jailed.

This is despite the fact that many prominent scientists now agree that the theory is faulty. In fact, no reputable scientists have suggested a link between the theory and the recent hurricanes. Of course, Bill Nye, the self-proclaimed “science guy” disagrees, but no one listens to him anymore.

ESPN Host Calls Trump and his Supporters White Supremists http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8529-ESPN-Host-Calls-Trump-and-his-Supporters-White-Supremists For years ESPN was the premiere sports network in the country and people tuned in to be entertained by watching their favorite sporting events. Then ESPN was bought by the Disney Corporation and decided for some strange reason that it had an obligation to indoctrinate its viewers with the left wing politics of it executives. As a result, it has lost millions of subscribers and is in financial trouble.

However, instead of seeing the light it has doubled down. A few months ago it fired popular baseball star Curt Schilling for daring to make an offhand remark opposing transgender bathrooms. It seems that if you work for ESPN the only political opinions you are allowed to have is those on the left. Now one of its hosts, Jemele Hill has launched a twitter storm attacking President Trump and all of his supporters as racists and white supremacists. The network did not fire her, although it apologized and said her remarks were inappropriate.

National Debt Tops $20 Trillion http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8528-National-Debt-Tops-$20-Trillion For the first time in our history the National Debt of the United States has exceeded $20 trillion. It has been hovering near that mark for the last several years of the Obama administration since in his eight years in office he almost doubled the debt and that was inherited by Donald Trump when he became president.

The debt had actually been reduced for the first few months of the Trump administration, but then Hurricane Harvey hit and the debt ceiling was temporarily eliminated by the President so that billions in relief could be provided to the people of Texas. Billions more will have to be spent following Hurricane Irma so the national debt is spiking.

Dueling Endorsements http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8526-Dueling-Endorsements Representative Mark Meadows endorsed Alabama’s Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Meadows had supported fellow Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks’ bid during the primary. "I saw the millions of dollars coming in that truly painted a picture of my good friend Mo Brooks in a way that was not only not accurate, but it was downright deceitful and lies, and that made me want to play that much more on behalf of Judge Roy Moore." Meadows said that his endorsement of Moore should be seen as “pushback against the swamp.” Meadows has not spoken to Majority Leader McConnell directly, but did make his points through interviews with the media. McConnell has pledged to support all incumbent Republican senators in their re-election efforts. Meadows said, "I've stayed out of recruiting of candidates to run against sitting members of the House or the Senate. We've tried to take a more collegial approach to not try to recruit people against sitting members of Congress or sitting senators." However, the Freedom Caucus leader said Luther Strange was appointed to his Senate seat and had not won it. That fact justified supporting Judge Moore over the appointed Luther Strange. The runoff election will be September 26.

Democrats To Release Single-Payer Bill http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8525-Democrats-To-Release-Single-Payer-Bill Bernie Sanders will announce his proposed single-payer healthcare bill on Wednesday. Several Democrats who may run for the presidency in 2020 are rushing to support it. CoryBooker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand have all co-sponsord the bill. But Democrats up for re-election in red states are not rushing to embrace single-payer. Senator Sherrod Brown wants to expand Medicare and make it available for people at age 55. The senator thought that expanding the Medicare pool is more achievable than single payer. Senator Heitkamp of North Dakota is said to be “focused on making sure the Affordable Care Act works for the people of [her] state.” And Joe Manchin said, “I am skeptical that single-payer is the right solution, but I believe that the Senate should carefully consider all of the options.” Top Democrats in the House are focused on fixing and preserving Obamacare. While Republicans control both houses of Congress, it’s unlikely that single-payer or an expansion of Medicare will take place.

The Spending Deal’s Dirty Secret http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8524-The-Spending-Deal’s-Dirty-Secret President Trump’s spending deal with Democrats also funds Planned Parenthood through Medicaid and Title X family planning grants. During the campaign, candidate Trump told national pro-life leaders, “I am committed to … Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and re-allocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health for women.” The spending deal now puts the president and Republicans squarely on the side of funding Planned Parenthood. This is the third time since becoming president that Trump has signed legislation funding Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood receives $60 million every year from Title X’s family planning program. The organization also receives $400 million every year from Medicaid reimbursements. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider it the country. In 2016 it committed 328,348 abortions. The so called “non-profit” organization made a profit of $77.5 million in 2015-2016 fiscal year.

Possible New Spy Tool For Spy Agencies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8523-Possible-New-Spy-Tool-For-Spy-Agencies Federal spy agencies may soon have another tool to spy on Americans. A one-sentence clause was tacked onto a Senate Intelligence Committee bill. It says that WiliLeaks “‘resembles a non-state hostile intelligence service’ and that the U.S. government ‘should treat it as such.’” People who saw the clause say that it “is likely targeting anyone collaborating with” Wikileaks. Spy agencies would be able to “secure the authorization needed to surveil those U.S. citizens thought to be associates with WikiLeaks,” said Robert Deitz a lawyer formerly with several intelligence agencies. The language of the clause is similar to what CIA Director Mike Pompeo used in April. He said, “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is — a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.” Chairman Richard Burr’s Senate office would not explain the legislation saying, “We don’t discuss committee deliberations.”

Manchin, Heitcamp, and Donnelly are all up for re-election. The Democratic senators are being asked to support reforming the tax code. The senators did not sign a letter from Minority Leader Schumer which outlined the “Democrat’s priorities on tax reform.” “Manchin said after the dinner that the group had a "productive conversation" on how to reform the tax code—one of the GOP's biggest agenda priorities.” If the Trump administration can get some Democratic support, it will make it easier to “negotiate a deal” with other Democrats. West Virginia Senator Manchin said, "I look forward to working with the President, the Administration and my Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle on tax reform and going through regular order so we can help all Americans and West Virginians prosper.”

Make Trump Great Again http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8521-Make-Trump-Great-Again White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has brought considerable order to White House and to its decision making process. The leaks are fewer. “Divisive figures” have been dismissed. All paperwork is reviewed before reaching the president. Meetings must have an agenda as well as a shorter list of attendees. There are no more informal chats with the president. Cabinet secretaries no longer have walk-in privileges. “Kelly has completely reorganized the process of how the Oval Office does business and how the White House does business.” However, Kelly “has had a marginal impact on the way Trump does business,” said Republican strategist Doug Heye. By many accounts the president will never change his personality, his approach to politics, nor his tweets and public remarks. While many staffers support the order that Kelly has brought to the White House, many are unsure how long it can last. Much less how long President Trump will tolerate Kelly’s restraints.

Clinton Calls Abortion a ‘Fundamental Human Right’ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8520-Clinton-Calls-Abortion-a-‘Fundamental-Human-Right’ Hillary Clinton made it clear that abortion is a “fundamental human right.” The declaration came after Clinton was asked if she felt “that abortion litmus test are necessary for the Democratic Party in red states.” The issue surfaced after Senator Bernie Sanders came out in support “for a mayoral candidate in Omaha, Nebraska, Heath Mello, who identified as pro-life.” DNC chair Tom Perez disagreed with the endorsement. While Clinton did not commit to a ‘litmus test,” she came close. "I have to say that I am proud to be a Democrat, and I'm proud of all the progress that's happened in my own lifetime. And I will continue to advocate for the policies of the Democratic Party," Clinton said. "But I don't think it's either/or. You need a very strong economic message, which I think I had, but it was hard to get through. And you need to stand up for human rights, social justice, and civil rights. And a woman's right to control her body and her health care decisions is a fundamental human right." Clinton applauded her former running mate Senator Tim Kaine who willingly abandoned his personal pro-life convictions to gain the favor of the Democratic establishment.

Civil Asset Forfeiture Amendment Passes House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8519-Civil-Asset-Forfeiture-Amendment-Passes-House The House of Representatives passed an amendment that would defund the Department of Justice civil asset forfeiture program. The amendment has the support of Democrats and Republicans. Under the program, law enforcement “can seize property without formally convicting or even charging its owner.” The seizure is “based on the suspicion that the property has been involved in illegal activity.” Civil asset forfeiture was originally conceived as a tool against gang members so law enforcement could “seize drugs and cash without arresting their owners.” The federal government encouraged the use of the law by letting local law enforcement agencies keep 80 percent of money and assets seized. It created tremendous abuse and many innocent people have had their property stolen. Former Attorney General Eric Holder shut down the federal forfeiture program, but Attorney General Sessions re-implemented the rule in July.

Judge Suspended for Wearing MAGA Hat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8518-Judge-Suspended-for-Wearing-MAGA-Hat A Canadian judge will serve a 30-day unpaid suspension for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat in his courtroom. Judge Bernd Zabel wore the hat as a joke . . . an attempt to lighten the courtroom’s mood. The far more serious minded judicial council, tasked with meting out justice for the grave infraction, was not amused. “The choice we face is between the second-most serious sanction, suspension without pay for 30 days, perhaps combined with other less serious sanctions, and recommending removal from office,” the panel declared. Before rendering its judgment, the panel made a show of serious deliberation. It waded through piles of automated complaints as well as an almost equal number of messages in support of the judge. “Female colleagues say that he encouraged them when they were at the bar and has been entirely supportive since they joined him on the bench. Fellow judges and members of the bar insist that he is an open-minded and impartial judge who does not exhibit polarized, misogynistic, racist or homophobic views.” The judge’s “unblemished” 27 years of “exemplary service” and support for women and colleagues, likely persuaded the judicial panel to restrain member’s inclination to fire Judge Zabel. Opting instead for the more modest 30-day unpaid suspension.

Climate change crusaders are calling for the imprisonment of people who do not adhere to climate change groupthink. “In the wake of Harvey, it’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable,” read the subhead in an article by Brian Merchant. Brand Johnson of Climate Hawks Vote urged government to “put officials who reject science in jail.” Meanwhile, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach’s research shows that Hurricane Irma ties for the “seventh most powerful storm to hit the mainland since the 1850s. Hurricane Harvey is in a three-way tie for 17th place. Anthony Watts of the blog, Watts Up With That, said it’s going to be touch for climate alarmists to try connecting these two storms to being driven by CO2/global warming. But they’ll do it anyway.”

Unfortunately, concessions had to be made to keep the Russians and Chinese on board since either country could have vetoed the resolution,

For example, a cap has been put on the amount of oil imports by the North Koreans and that falls short of the total embargo the U.S. wanted. The watered down version also does not impose the sanctions on the North Korean airlines and the military that the U.S. wanted. However, Nikki Haley says these are still the strongest sanctions imposed yet.

The complaint was filed by former Department of Justice Attorney Ty Clevenger. The complaint accuses David Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson of destroying evidence.

Judge Paul Harris refused to dismiss an investigation as “frivolous” and ordered the investigation to move forward.

Harris called the allegations “egregious” and ruled that the complaint “appears to have merit.”

“There are allegations of destroying evidence. I just think this is a rather easy decision at this point . . . The court is ordering bar counsel to investigate.”

The rules of the state bar require the bar to “conduct investigations no matter who raises the complaint.”

Ty Clevenger “has pursued sanctions against Mrs. Clinton and her legal team in several venues and is pressing the FBI to release details of its investigation into the former top diplomat.”

Judge Moore Picks Up Support From Gun Rights Group http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5808-Judge-Moore-Picks-Up-Support-From-Gun-Rights-Group Gun Owners of America (GOA) is calling on Alabama voters to support Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate.

“Judge Moore has long been an articulate — and uncompromising — champion for gun rights. And he will fight just as hard for gun owners in the U.S. Senate,” read a GOA press release.

Upcoming legislation would allow for reciprocity for carry permits. Another bill amends the National Firearms Act of 1934 and removes suppressors.

Gun Owners of America believes that with Judge Moore in the Senate, he would “help pass these bills.”

Judge Moore opposes an expansion of Brady Registration checks, opposes bans of high capacity gun magazines and so called “assault weapons.”

When asked about his support for the Second Amendment during the primary, Judge Moore “pulled a concealed carry revolver out of his wife’s purse” saying, “We carry.”

Famous For Being Politically Incorrect http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5807-Famous-For-Being-Politically-Incorrect The owner of a Dairy Queen in Wisconsin is happy to be politically incorrect. And now he’s famous for it.

Kevin Scheunemann has a sign on the door to his franchise warning customers.

“This restaurant is politically incorrect.” The message warns that employees “have been known to say Merry Christmas, Happy Easter, God Bless America.”

Other offending things employees might do is give away free ice cream sundaes to veteran on Veterans Day.

He first posted the sign after a customer took offense at Christian music being played in the store.

"I felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country. It just seems that those kinds of values and principles are becoming controversial in society.”

Although the sign serves as fair warning, a customer was triggered. Ashley Coleman of Oregon took a picture of the sign and posted it to her Facebook account proclaiming, “I find this extremely offensive. Please speak with the franchise owner.”

The Wisconsin community is rallying around Scheunemann. Business is picking up.

Local state senator Duey Stroebel said the sign was “creating a blizzard” of “offended snowflakes.”

Robots Coming to a Bank Near You http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5806-Robots-Coming-to-a-Bank-Near-You Deutsche Bank’s Chief Executive Officer John Cryan is predicting that a “big number” of the bank’s employees will one day be replaced by robots. The bank currently employs 100,000 people.

“In our banks we have people behaving like robots doing mechanical things, tomorrow we’re going to have robots behaving like people. We have to find new ways of employing people and maybe people need to find new ways of spending their time… The truthful answer is we won’t need as many people.”

Robots are being used in a variety of fields including construction, ironing, and kitchen-work.

Garry Kasparaov said that humans need “to start recognizing inevitability of machine take over are and more tasks that we used to do in the past.”

“It’s called progress. We should just take it as a fact and look into the future trying to understand how can we adjust.”

California’s Lieutenant Governor wants to fight to eep humans from being unemployed by robots. “We’re going to get rolled over unless we get ahead of this.?

Democrats Don’t Want Answers on Dossier http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5805-Democrats-Don’t-Want-Answers-on-Dossier Democrats have been pushing back Republican efforts to get answers about the salacious Trump dossier.

The dossier was used by the FBI “to form the basis of its investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.”

Now that the Russian collusion narrative has failed, Democrats don’t want answers about the dossier according to Trey Gowdy of the House Intelligence Committee.

“I don’t know why anyone . . . would not be curious whether or not the world’s premier law enforcement agency relied upon a dossier in connection with an investigation without vetting it.”

The FBI and DOJ have avoided requests for information about the dossier. Gowdy is pushing to know how law enforcement agencies corroborated and vetted the document.

Bi-Partisan Effort to Raise Salary Cap on Secret Service http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5804-Bi-Partisan-Effort-to-Raise-Salary-Cap-on-Secret-Service Republicans and Democrats introduced legislation to raise the salary cap on Secret Service agents.

Under current law, the agency is “no longer able to pay agents because more than 1,000 of them have already reached the limits for salary and overtime allowances this year.”

The proposed law would increase salary and overtime pay to $187,000 a year from $161,900 per year. It would apply to fiscal 2017 and to fiscal 2018.

The legislation also requires that the agency give a report about recruitment and retention efforts.

During the campaign, an estimated 1,000 agents maxed out their pay and Congress had to pass legislation to ensure agents were paid for their overtime hours.

The Secret Service has been stretched because of the large number of people in the president’s family as well as the multiple properties that the president owns.

Republican Swamp Upset They Might be Primaried http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5803-Republican-Swamp-Upset-They-Might-be-Primaried Former presidential advisor Steve Bannon is planning to primary Republican incumbents who have not been supportive of the Trump agenda.

Republican senators responded saying that Bannon should focus on defeating Democrats instead of replacing Republicans.

“I wish they would focus on Democrats instead of Republicans," said Sen. John Cornyn.

Senator John Thun said that primary challengers would make it harder for the GOP to keep its Senate majority status.

Senator Cornyn said that the president and his allies would be “well advised to focus on growing our number of Republicans in the Senate rather than diminishing it. The president’s going to need as many friendly faces around here as he can get in order to get things done.”

However, there are 52 so called “friendly faces” in the Senate right now, but they have been unable or unwilling to deliver on the Trump agenda much less “get things done.”

More of the same friendly faces might just keep the Trump agenda stalled.

Mitt Romney Considering Run For Senate http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5802-Mitt-Romney-Considering-Run-For-Senate Former Massachusetts Governor and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney is thinking about running for U.S. Senate if Senator Orin Hatch decides not to run for an eighth term.

A spokesman for the Senator said that Hatch would not decide about retiring until October at the earliest and could take until December to make a decision.

When asked in February about running for Senate Romney said, “I don’t have any predictions on what I might do. I’m not going to open a door and I’m not going to close a door. All doors are open.”

During the presidential campaign, Romney called candidate Trump “a phony, a fraud” and discouraged voters from voting for him.

More recently, Romney criticized Trump’s remarks on Charlottesville, saying the president did not go far enough in condemning white supremacists.

As a Senator, Mitt Romney would not be counted as a supporter of the Trump agenda.

UN Sanctions North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5801-UN-Sanctions-North-Korea The United Nations Security Council members voted to impose more sanctions on North Korea after the country exploded its sixth nuclear weapon September 3rd.

The new sanctions will impose a ban on North Korea’s textile exports and impose a cap on crude oil imports.

This is the ninth time since 2006 that sanctions have been imposed on North Korea.

In 2016, North Korea exported $752 million worth of textiles. 80 percent of the textiles went to China.

The latest sanctions limit North Korea to importing two million barrels of refined petroleum products a year. And caps North Korea’s import of crude oil at current levels or four million barrels a year.

To get the support of Russia and China, the U.S. watered down its resolution.

National Debt Exceeds $20 Trillion http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5800-National-Debt-Exceeds-$20-Trillion The U.S. national debt exceeded a record $20 billion on Monday.

The national debt is the cumulation of all yearly deficits and surpluses that the government has run up.

Due to accounting tricks and extreme measures, the Treasury actually lowered the national debt by $100 billion since the beginning of the Trump administration.

After last Thursday’s agreement to suspend the debt ceiling, the U.S. Treasury issued $317 billion in additional debt. Some of the money will go towards the victims of the hurricanes.

The Office of Management and Budge estimates that the deficit for 2017 will be $100 billion higher than originally thought. The deficit is projected to be $702 billion for 2017.

Linda Sarsour, the Muslim Sharia law advocate who was one of the organizers of the Women’s March has become a hero to the American left. She has been pushing for so called disaster relief in the Houston that will not go to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, but to various left wing groups to organize politically. Other groups are raising money to provide abortions, support transgenders, or minorities only. In other words, if you are a white disaster victim you need not apply for relief from the latter groups.

However, many fans were outraged and the ratings for NFL games started falling. This year during the preseason more overpaid, spoiled players, joined in disrespecting the anthem, the flag, our military, and our veterans.

Once again the NFL did nothing so the fans reacted. The season opening game between the Chiefs and the Patriots had 12% less viewers than last season’s opener. If this continues it will not be long before advertisers take notice and start cutting back on their advertising for the games.

Judicial Nominee Attacked by Democrats for Being too “Christian” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5797-Judicial-Nominee-Attacked-by-Democrats-for-Being-too-“Christian” If a conservative member of the United States senate were to have questioned a nominee for the judiciary about his or her Muslim religion for example, that senator would be immediately attacked by the left for being Islamophobic. However, the same standard is not applied to Amy Barrett, a highly qualified nominee for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. She is a professor of law at Notre Dame University and a practicing Catholic faith. However, she made it clear in her writings that a judge should not make judicial decisions based on their religious belief.

However, that was not sufficient for Democrat senators Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin, or Mazi Horono. They viciously attacked her for her Christian beliefs and implied that being too Catholic disqualified her from being allowed to serve on the court. All of them ignored the direct prohibition in the Constitution that prohibits applying a religious test to anyone seeking public office.

Among the items captured in ISIS headquarters are laptop computers and cell phones that contain a treasure trove of information.

This information includes lists of previously unknown ISIS operatives around the world, and potentially information on targets for terrorist attacks. Much more information may be found, but it will take a while because the sheer volume of available information threatens to overwhelm coalition intelligence operatives, at least in the short run.

This will certainly not be the case for at the least the upcoming season since on islands like St. Martin, St. Bartholomew, Barbuda, and the Virgin Islands. Hotels, resorts, and airports have been heavily damaged or completely destroyed. The areas where the cruise ships berth are also damaged and most of the businesses on the islands which cater to the tourists are closed.

Also considered are the continuing weather dangers to people who think the worst is over and go out sightseeing or even to try and check on friends and relatives. With the winds dying down in many locations some individuals may leave sheltered areas and wander into places where the flooding from storm surges is just beginning.

Too White http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5791-Too-White The British Red Cross is too white according to Britain’s Red Cross chief, Mike Adamson. Writing for a blog, Adamson said, “There is no escaping the fact that with shining exceptions, such as our refugee services, we are nowhere near as diverse as we need to be in our volunteer base, our staffing or our leadership.” Adamson is working to change the makeup of the organization so that the Red Cross will be “relevant to the world of today and tomorrow.” Adamson also bemoaned the very name of the organization he serves. “British” and “cross” are a “challenge” for him. He worried that the Red Cross might be confused for a “Christian establishment organization.” One commenter wrote of Adamson’s self-loathing, “Call in the Red Crescent, if that is of the correct ethnicity. What’s truly pathetic is the self-hate and desperate apologies for not being ‘relevant’ enough.”

So far Denver, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Baltimore, and Pittsburg are jumping into the bidding war.

Companies such as Facebook, Google, and Apple could pay billions. Large international tech companies structure their corporate affairs in countries that have low corporate tax rates so as to reduce their tax liability. In 2011, “Apple’s Irish subsidiary . . . paid just $10 million in taxes on $22 billion in pre-tax earnings.” In July, Eurocrats created rules that force large multinational corporations to publish “country-by-country public reports of income and tax payments information to prevent the companies form arranging their affairs to declare most profits in foreign tax havens.” The German Green Party said, “Public country-by-country reporting will make it much harder for multinational corporations to shop around for the west possible tax rate, and help bring illegal activity to light.”

The incident began after two parked cars were burned. While firefighters were responding, another fire was started in a nearby building. While trying to put out the fire in the building, migrants attacked the firefighters and police with glass bottles. They were forced to retreat and let the building burn. Attacks on emergency personnel in Sweden have become more common especially in neighborhoods heavily populated by Muslims. Some ambulance unions have asked that paramedics be given bullet proof vests. In 2015, police were attacked in “no go zones” and told by local migrants, “you are not in charge here.”

Germany Is A Magnet for Migrants http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5787-Germany-Is-A-Magnet-for-Migrants Germany is viewed as a magnet for migrants because of the country’s “generous welfare benefits.” Germany’s Interior Minister said that “‘procedures and reception conditions are generous’ and ‘the benefits for refugees are quite high.’” Also driving to the inflow of migrants was Germany’s announcement that 800,000 migrants had arrived in the country. The Interior Minister said that was a “‘signal’ to prospective migrants and traffickers that Germany was willing to take in that many.” The German Interior Minister condemned Hungary’s refusal to accept immigrants. He said that it was unacceptable “that an EU Member State does not comply with a judgment of the European Court of Justice.” He called on the European Union to have greater procedural uniformity. Asylum seekers in Germany can use the country’s legal system to put off deportation. That appeal system is not as extensive in other EU countries. The Interior Minister said that the long-term solution is to “coordinate, control and limit the influx of refugees.”

Opioid Epidemic Affecting The Economy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5786-Opioid-Epidemic-Affecting-The-Economy In a new study by the Brookings Institute, Economist Alan Krueger writes that nearly half of the men surveyed “take pain medication on a daily basis, and in nearly two-thirds of these cases they take prescription pain medication.” According to Krueger, “These figures likely understate the actual proportion of men taking prescription pain medication give the stigma and legal risk associated with reporting taking narcotics.” There are substantial economic consequences for this drug use. Krueger writes, “The opioid crisis and depressed labor-force participation are now intertwined in many parts of the U.S. Labor force participation has fallen more in areas where relatively more opioid pain medication is prescribed.” The labor force participation rate reached a 40-year low in 2015. Men who participated in the survey took painkillers “either as a result of being out of the workforce for a prolonged period or because they had a condition that required the use of painkillers and could not work because of the condition.” President Trump considers the opioid crisis a “deadly epidemic” and declared a “state of emergency” on August 10.

The North Korean government accused the United States of of “going frantic” in its effort to get the UN Security Council to agree to its sanction’s proposal. The North Koreans warned that “The DPRK has developed and perfected the super-powerful thermo-nuclear weapon as a means to deter the ever-increasing hostile moves and nuclear threat of the U.S. and defuse the danger of nuclear war looming over the Korean peninsula and the region.” North Korea created its nuclear weapons program after watching Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi get overthrown after agreeing to American demands that Libya end its nuclear program.

Horrific Thinking At the New York Fed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5783-Horrific-Thinking-At-the-New-York-Fed New York Federal Reserve President William Dudley has flawed thinking. After Hurricane Harvey, NY Fed President Dudley said, “The long-run effect of these disasters, unfortunately, is it actually lifts economic activity because you have to rebuild all the things that have been damaged by the storms.” Dudley is wrong. Destruction does not increase economic activity. Destruction shifts economic activity. Instead of increasing the size of the economy, people will have to shift their efforts to rebuilding their houses and businesses that were destroyed by the hurricane. Instead of using their money to expand the economy by buying new goods and services, people will be having to rebuild and replace what previously existed. Dudley has a PhD in economics from the University of California Berkeley and was chief economist for Goldman Sachs.

Co-founder, Mary Hoyt, said, “Those are the ones we have settled or on their way. We have 300 more homes and counting that are available. People are so amazingly generous.” Churches have been asking for donations of mattresses and blankets for shelters. The Atlanta Motor Speedway opened their facilities in Hampton to anyone needing a place. Airbnb listed 85 homes in Georgia and Florida that are free to evacuees.

Senator Durbin has long been a proponent of giving amnesty for “the younger illegals who were brought into the country as children by their illegal immigrant parents.” Jared Kushner “arranged phone calls between Durbin and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.” Durbin was disappointed that the president ended Obama administration’s DACA program but that subsequent tweets by the president gave him hope that something constructive for the Dreamers will get done. More recently, the president said that he wants Congress to solve the amnesty issue. “I’d like to see a permanent deal, and I think it’s going to happen. I think we’re going to have great support from both sides of Congress, and I really believe that Congress is going to work very hard on the DACA agreement and come up with something,” said the president.

Californians Will Bailout Olympic Games http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5780-Californians-Will-Bailout-Olympic-Games California taxpayers will be on the hook for any cost overruns as Los Angeles prepares for the 2028 Olympic Games. Politicians will cover up to $270 million for overruns. The money won’t be called a bailout, subsidy, or guarantee. Instead the state is calling the money the “Olympic Games Trust Fund.” Olympic games tend to lose substantial amounts of money. The games left the 1976 Montreal Summer games a debt of $1.5 billion. The 2016 Rio games left the city with a debt of $879 million. Ten days after the games, Brazil’s Senate “convicted and impeached President Dilma Rouseff for illegally using state bank money to bankroll crony Olympic public spending.” Los Angeles does not plan to build any new venues. When the city held the Olympic Games in 1984 they made $232.5 million.

College Degrees Viewed Skeptically http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5779-College-Degrees-Viewed-Skeptically A Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows 47 percent of Americans lack confidence that a four-year college degree “will lead to a good job and higher lifetime earnings.” Increased costs of a four-year degree, student debt levels, and a not so great economy are contributing to more Americans looking for other ways to go forward in life. Heather Swain, a VP for Communications at Michigan State said, “We’re aware of the various polls that show this decline in confidence. It’s happening across a wide variety of institutions. One of the things we’re doing to to try and make sure people understand the value of the university in different ways.” Joseph Glover, Provost for the University of Florida called the findings “somewhat startling.” “I think this is happening because there is a disconnect between the group of Americans who go to university and acquire an appreciation of life-long learning and another group people who never get access and never really understand the benefits a university brings to society at large.”

How Much Longer for Gary Cohn? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5778-How-Much-Longer-for-Gary-Cohn? The president’s chief economic adviser may be on his way out. Gary Cohn until recently was being considered for Chairman of the Federal Reserve when Janet Yellen’s term expires. Cohn reportedly has fallen out of favor with President Trump because of criticism he leveled against the president for remarks made by Trump in the aftermath of Charlottesville. In remarks to the Financial Times, Cohn said the administration “can and must do better” to condemn neo-Nazis and “do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities.” The president is said to hate Cohn and wanted him fired after Cohn’s remarks in the Financial Times interview. Economist Larry Kudlow is rumored to be considered as Cohn’s replacement for the position of chief economic adviser.

Fragile Snowflake Alert http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5777-Fragile-Snowflake-Alert University of California Berkeley will provide “support and counseling services for students, staff and faculty.” It seems an upcoming speaker at the university may cause trauma to some students. The university said, “We are deeply concerned about the impact some speakers may have on individuals’ sense of safety and belonging. No one should be made to feel threatened or harassed simply because of who they are or for what they believe. The cause for all this trauma? Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire. The conservative debater and writer will be speaking at the university on September 14. Although no students will be compelled to attend, “students who cannot countenance views that differ from their own are being offered counseling because of the possible psychological damage incurred by Shapiro’s rhetoric.” Shapiro said, “A healthy nation requires an emotionally and intellectually vigorous population ready to engage in open debate at all times. Shielding college students from opposing viewpoints makes the simultaneously weaker and more dangerous.”

Single-Payer Bill Will Be Unveiled Wednesday http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5776-Single-Payer-Bill-Will-Be-Unveiled-Wednesday Senator Bernie Sanders will unveil his “Medicare for All” legislation on Wednesday. Single-payer is gaining support with Democrat lawmakers. During the presidential campaign, Sanders made single-payer one of the planks of his campaign. Introducing Medicare for All keeps pushing the issue. At Wednesday’s announcement, Democratic co-sponsors will join Senator Sanders. Also expected will be “medical professionals, business leaders, and patients.” Medicare for All does not have much chance of going anywhere while Republicans are in control. Republicans lawmakers are trying to negotiate with Democrats to fund ObamaCare payments to insurers and grant “more flexibility to states to change regulations under the health law.” Senators Cassidy and Graham are pushing to “convert current ObamaCare spending into a block grant to states.”

Military Prepares Disaster Response http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5775-Military-Prepares-Disaster-Response The military is preparing to respond in Florida after Hurricane Irma strikes. The Pentagon sent six ships, aircraft and thousands of gallons of fuel to Florida region. National Guard troops have also been activated in Puerto Rico and Florida. Florida’s governor, Rick Scott, expects all 8,000 national Guard troops will be activated eventually. After Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Navy sent amphibious assault ships and Marine helicopters “to transport people and supplies.” The USS Oak Hill and USS Kearsarge are sitting North of St. Croix and will provide FEMA “medical support, maritime civil affairs, maritime security, . . . media and heavy lift air support, and bring a diverse capability including assessment, security, route clearance and water purification.” Hurricane Irma is expected to hit Florida on Sunday.

Lois Lerner Walks Free http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5774-Lois-Lerner-Walks-Free Lois Lerner, the former IRS official, who made sure conservative groups did not get their tax exemption status will not be criminally investigated. The Department of Justice sent a letter to Congress saying, “reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence.” Two Republican lawmakers had asked the Justice Department to reopen the case and investigate. The Obama Justice Department announced in 2015 that nobody would be prosecuted. At the time, officials “found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.” House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady said the Justice Department’s decision give the “green light to target Americans for their political beliefs and mislead investigators without ever being held accountable for their lawlessness.”

Family Group Loses Payment Processing After Being Labeled Hate Group http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5773-Family-Group-Loses-Payment-Processing-After-Being-Labeled-Hate-Group The Ruth Institute lost its payment processing company after the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled it a hate group. The Ruth Institute “describes itself as an organization dedicated to ‘creating a mass social movement to end family breakdown.’” Payment processing provider, Vanco, flagged the Ruth Institute for “hate, violence, harassment, and/or abuse.” Vanco’s emailed statement read in part, “The organization has been flagged by Card Brands as being affiliated with a product/service that promotes hate, violence, harassment and/or abuse. Merchants that display such attributes are against Vanco and Wells Fargo processing policies.” The Ruth Institute found that the donation feature on its website had already been disabled by the time Vanco’s email was received. Dr. Jennifer Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute, said, “The corporate left is out there doing what they do and I can’t stop them—they’re going to do what they do with their power.” She went on to say that the incident has given her a chance to talk about the mission of the Ruth Institute. “We believe that family breakdown is harmful to children. We believe that family breakdown is harmful to children We believe it’s unjust to children, and that children have a right to have a relationship with both of their parent and to know their identity.” So far Vanco has remained unavailable for comment.

Random Kindness in Midst of Chaos http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5772-Random-Kindness-in-Midst-of-Chaos Florida resident Pam Brekke went out to buy a generator in Thursday’s rush to prepare for Hurricane Irma. Brekke was next in line at Lowe’s to buy one, but the last generator was sold to the customer in front of her. Brekke’s father is on oxygen and she needed it to power his oxygen supply. Another customer in the store, Ramon Santiago, saw Brekke break down in tears. He insisted the she take the generator he was planning to buy so that she could help her father. Moved by his kindness, Brekke hugged Santiago. The exchange was a huge hit on social media as well as Lowe’s. Later in the day, another generator became available and the Lowe’s store manager immediately thought of Santiago and his act of kind kindness. On Friday, Santiago returned to Lowe’s and the store gave him the generator and a gasoline can free of charge. “I wanted to make sure he received it because he definitely deserved it. He’s the hero of the day,” said manager Melissa Rodriguez.

Trump Orders Pentagon to Shoot Down North Korean Missiles http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5771-Trump-Orders-Pentagon-to-Shoot-Down-North-Korean-Missiles Amid increasing concerns of another imminent missile test by North Korea President Trump has ordered the Pentagon to shoot down any missile launched by the Kim Jong Un regime in the direction of the continental United States, Hawaii, or Guam. This comes after some military experts have expressed concern that the North Koreans may test an ICBM not by firing it high into the atmosphere, but by firing it down range in the general direction of U.S. territories. This would be the next logical step for the rogue regime in order to determine the capability of its missiles and try to intimidate the United States and its allies.

It didn’t exactly turn out that way. Instead it turned out that three of the Taco Bell employees, two 19 year old men and one 23 year old did not comply with the robbers who told them to lie on the floor. The three employees pulled out handguns of their own and opened fire.

One of the robbers escaped, but the other was shot six times and killed. No arrests have been made and the three employees have not been fired, but offered counseling if needed by the company.

U.S. and Coalition Fighter Planes Picking Off ISIS Sitting Ducks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5769-U.S.-and-Coalition-Fighter-Planes-Picking-Off-ISIS-Sitting-Ducks ISIS militants have been under increasing pressure in Syria not only by U.S. led coalition forces, but also by Syrian government forces, so the terrorist group decided to withdraw a large number of its forces to the Iraq border. It used eleven busses to evacuate hundreds of fighters and civilians, but the convoy was cut off and left stranded in the Syrian Desert. This left it at the mercy of coalition aircraft that started methodically picking off ISIS fighters that strayed too far from the convoy.

Since there were women and children in the convoy itself it has not been attacked directly, but over forty ISIS vehicles, including at least one tank that attempted to come to the aid of the convoy have been destroyed by Coalition fighters.

Cruise Ship Passengers Trapped in Miami http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5767-Cruise-Ship-Passengers-Trapped-in-Miami Hurricane Irma is now predicted to move slightly westward in a jog that will cause it to move through central Florida. This will put it west of Miami and that means the most powerful part of the storm on the northeast quadrant will hit Miami and many people of the city are evacuating. However, there are many people that were on cruise ships that were forced to shorten their Caribbean cruises and return to Miami.

Passengers have quickly learned that there are few seats on flights available out of Miami, there are no rental cars available, and hotel rooms are in short supply. Many passengers will be forced to stay on the ships, or go to local shelters to ride out the storm.

Everyone’s IDs will be checked and if someone is found to have a warrant out for their arrest they will escorted by deputies from the shelter to the county jail.

The sheriff is particularly concerned about keeping sexual predators out of the shelters to protect children who might be in a vulnerable position. In some ways this is a unique and revolutionary action since most of the time there is more concern with just sheltering people from the storm than also protecting them from being prey for criminals.

The city has a deficit of $50 million and is quickly running out of ways to pay its bills. “We face the greatest fiscal crisis in our city’s history,” officials said in a letter. The cost for health care, pension obligations, and debt servicing has contributed to the city’s financial crisis. A law firm has been hired to negotiate with bondholders. Bondholders “will need to be part of the solution today, through a serious, sustainable, long-term debt restructuring.” The state government has been unable to pass a budget for the current fiscal year. Lawmakers are struggling to close a $3.5 billion deficit. Since July 1, state operations have been funded by an executive order” that was signed by the governor. But funding for towns and cities has been slashed.

Investigators want to know “how the White House crafted a response to reports of the meeting, and whether information was deliberately left out.” An initial statement from Donald Trump Jr. said that the meeting was about adoption of Russian children by Americans. A subsequent statement said that Donald Trump Jr. was led to believe that a Russian lawyer would have incriminating information about Hillary Clinton. The role of the president in crafting the response is being investigated by Special Counsel Mueller. Investigators want to know if Trump knowingly made a false statement. News reports from the Washington Post said that the president “personally dictated the statement on Air Force One on the way home from the G20 summit in Germany.”

Regulators Failed to Regulate and Inspect http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5760-Regulators-Failed-to-Regulate-and-Inspect California’s Oroville Dam had design defects dating back to its construction in 1969. The dam’s spillway failed in February and caused the evacuation of 200,000 residents. An initial inspection report showed 24 possible reasons why the Oroville Dam’s spillway failed. Some reasons cited were inadequate maintenance, thin concrete slabs, poor drainage, and the use of weathered rock. State and federal officials who reviewed the dam relied on visual inspections. The second interim report said that a “serious dam and infrastructure review should have reviewed blueprints, construction records and other documents.” Records as far back as the 1970s detail cracks in the concrete right after the dam opened in 1969. Other records show uneven thickness of the spillway’s slab and drains were “improperly designed to handle their rated water-flow capacities.” In 2007 the dam failed a 50-years extension and has been operating “on temporary one-year regulatory extensions” for the last decade. The state spent $275 million in emergency repairs to the main and emergency spillways. But the dam’s numerous defects remain.

Possible Voter Fraud in New Hampshire http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5759-Possible-Voter-Fraud-in-New-Hampshire New Hampshire was a battle ground state during the last presidential election. The state is also one of fifteen states to allow same-day registration. This gives people who procrastinate a way to vote on election day. However the state has no ability to determine the eligibility of the voter. On election day in 2016 there were 6,540 same-day voter registrations. The voters showed up using “an out-of-state driver’s license for identification.” According to New Hampshire state law, new residents have 60 days to obtain a driver’s license. Ten months after the election, only 1,014 of the 6,540 same-day registrations received a new license. Of the 5,526 remaining, only 213 registered a vehicle in the state. The 5,513 remaining votes may have been enough to swing the senate election to the Democratic challenger Maggie Hassan. She won the election by 1,017 votes. Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire by a mere 2,732 votes.

North Korea Raises Stakes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5758-North-Korea-Raises-Stakes North Korea threatened an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against the United States. Kim Jong Un issued a statement claiming the country’s nuclear weapon “is a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP attack according to strategic goals.” Kim went further and said that “all components of the H-bomb were homemade . . . thus enabling the country to produce powerful nuclear weapons as many as it wants.” An electromagnetic pulse is a sudden pulse of electromagnetic radiation. “The currents caused by these, charges the atmosphere with electromagnetic waves that travel down onto the earth’s surface at super speeds hitting everything within their line of sight, sending high-voltage energy through the electricity grid and frying them, causing massive disarray.” The United States has done very little to protect itself from an EMP attack. Under the Obama administration hundreds of millions of dollars were spent to harden the Cheyenne Mountain Complex against an EMP attack.

The DOJ filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the Christian baker. Jack Phillips agreed to sell a same sex couple a cake, but he declined to custom design a wedding cake citing his Christian beliefs that marriage is between a man and a woman. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission sanctioned Phillips for violating the state’ public accommodations law. One state official went so far as to compare Phillips to a Nazi. The Justice Department said in a statement, “Although public-accommodations laws serve important purposes, they —like other laws—must yield to the individual freedoms that the First Amendment guarantees. That includes the freedom not to create expression for ceremonies that violate one’s religious beliefs.” 80 congressional Republicans filed their own amicus brief supporting Phillips. The Supreme Court will begin its next term on October 2.

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Mecker said “People hate Congress and the leadership there right now. The hatred is white hot and not aimed at the president.” Speaker Ryan further cemented the perception of incompetence on Thursday.

A “cybersecurity incident” allowed hackers to get names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, and other personal information. The hacking incident occurred “between mid-May and July.” Equifax discovered the breach on July 29. Equifax will offer “free identity theft protection and credit file monitoring to U.S. consumers.” A website has been created so consumers can find out if their information was exposed. Senator Mark Warner said, “It is no exaggeration to suggest that a breach such as this . . . represents a real threat to the economic security of Americans.” Warner said that it might be time for Congress to rethink data protection policies and to “create a uniform data breach notification standard.” Three senior Equifax executives sold shares worth almost $1.8 million in the days after the security intrusion was detected. Equifax released a statement saying that the executives did not know about the breach at the time they sold.

Countries Developing Anti-Satellite Weapons http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5754-Countries-Developing-Anti-Satellite-Weapons U.S. satellites are sitting targets. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are developing weapons to take them out. Currently the United States operates 500 civilian and military satellites. The Joint Chiefs of Staff estimates that a conflict in space would be “intense, highlighted by satellites maneuvering to hinder the operation of other satellites, co-orbital jamming, and the use of ground-based lasers to dazzle or destroy imaging sensors.” North Korea has successfully jammed GPS satellites that provided navigation data near North Korea. The ability to jam GPS signals would create massive problems for the use of weapons systems that rely on the GPS signal. Congress and various administrations have restricted the military from developing space based weapons and ground based anti-satellite capabilities. No such restrictions have been placed on other countries.

Senator Feinstein questioned Amy Barrett about her Catholic faith. Feinstein said, “The dogma lives loudly within you and that’s of concern.” The Catholic Association called Feinstein’s comments as a “shockingly illegitimate line of questioning.” Speaking for the Association, Ashely McGuire said, "Senator Feinstein's shockingly illegitimate line of questioning sends the message that Catholics need not apply as federal judges. Rather that unconstitutionally discriminating against Amy Barrett on the basis of her faith, Senator Feinstein should focus on her exceptional qualifications for the job." Liberal Democrats are trying to remove Feinstein from the Judiciary Committee. Recently at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, Feinstein suggested that President Trump “can be a good president.” A leftist activist group Credo Action said that Feinstein “is one of the last Democratic members who should be giving Trump a pass. Democratic Leader Senator Schumer must replace her.” So far the Minority Leader has not addressed the controversy.

The Iranian government is using spies, often posing as journalists themselves, to blackmail and threaten journalists and their families in order to influence coverage of its rogue regime.

In fact, over 50 international journalists have reported being threatened by Iranian agents in the past year, including 16 who received death threats. Persian speaking journalists are the most commonly threatened, but everyone who covers stories about Iran is at risk. These include Persian speaking employees of the BBC who have sometimes had members of their families detained by the Iranians.

Vietnam Veterans Outraged Over Ken Burns Vietnam Film http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5751-Vietnam-Veterans-Outraged-Over-Ken-Burns-Vietnam-Film Ken Burns has been criticized in the past for putting liberal propaganda into his supposed documentaries for PBS. However, according to some Vietnam War veterans who have gotten information about his documentary on the war. Burns has really gone over the top. Apparently, the so called documentary trashes America and the U.S. military specifically. The film appears to claim that Americans were fighting against the Vietnamese people, not with the South Vietnamese against communism.

In fact the word, communism is never used in the film, the support for the communist North Vietnam by the Soviet Union and China is never mentioned, and the atrocities committed by the communists against the civilian population are ignored. In addition, the heroism of American and South Vietnamese troops is also ignored. It is not surprising that John Kerry has endorsed the film.

ISIS Issues Chilling New Instructions to its Followers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5750-ISIS-Issues-Chilling-New-Instructions-to-its-Followers Months ago the brutal terrorist leaders of ISIS issued instructions to its followers to start using cars and trucks as weapons of terror by driving them into crowds of innocent civilians. Many dutiful Jihadists did as they were told and executed deadly attacks in various European cities with horrendous consequences.

Now ISIS has issued a new set of orders instructing its followers to start injecting food in grocery stores with cyanide poison. It claims to have tested this on prisoners and it causes horrifically painful deaths. This claim has been confirmed by ISIS documents captured when he Iraqi army took back Mosul. Such attacks could not only cause many deaths, but lead to sever economic impacts on the U.S. economy.

Obamacare Collapse Coming Soon http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5749-Obamacare-Collapse-Coming-Soon The failure of the Republicans in the Senate to vote to repeal and replace Obamacare has virtually insured that the collapse of Obamacare is accelerating. Several Insurance Commissioners from states like Alaska and Tennessee recently testified before Congress about the out of control spiraling of insurance premiums in their states. In Alaska, for example, a person in the market who was paying a monthly premium of $344 in 2013 will now be paying $1,041.

Ironically, the Republican Senator from Alaska, Lisa Murkowski was one of the votes that kept Obamacare alive. Now, instead of trying again to fulfill their campaign promise some Republicans are preparing to work with Democrats to temporarily bail out Obamacare.

Twenty Five States Have Failed to Comply with REAL ID Act http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5748-Twenty-Five-States-Have-Failed-to-Comply-with-REAL-ID-Act Starting in January of next year state issued IDs such as drivers’ licenses may not be sufficient to get people on an airplane. The Department of Homeland Security began implementing the act in 2005 that requires certain enhancements on licenses to bring them in compliance. At this time only 25 states have complied, and most of them are in the South and Midwest.

The other 25 states have gotten an extension, but some may not get into compliance before the deadline. Residents of those states will need some other form of identification such as a passport or special passport cards issued by the U.S. State Department. These must be obtained in advance of any planned flights next year from non-compliant states.

Harvey Death Toll Continues to Rise http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5747-Harvey-Death-Toll-Continues-to-Rise At least seventy deaths in Texas have now been attributed to Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. The toll includes deaths reported from thirteen different counties. with Harris county, where Houston is located, reporting the highest toll. Most of the deaths were caused by drowning although several people died as a result of not being able to be transported to hospitals when they developed life threatening situations.

Another death occurred when a lineman was electrocuted while trying to restore power to a community outside of Houston. Since the water in many locations is still receding and many people are believed to be missing the death toll is expected to continue rising.

Reports are still sketchy from many locations, but islands like St. Barts and St. Martin are reporting heavy damage, and some deaths and injuries. The island of Barbuda that is near Antiqua is reporting over 90% destruction.

Reports are just beginning to trickle in from the U.S. Virgin Islands, where deaths are also being reported, and Puerto Rica where the government is saying that parts of the island may be without electrical power for as long as six months.

Liberal Media Claims Trump’s DACA Decision is Racist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5745-Liberal-Media-Claims-Trump’s-DACA-Decision-is-Racist As expected many in the liberal media went into hysteria after President Trump set aside DACA or the so called “Dreamer” program. They accused him of lacking compassion for the poor illegals who were brought here by their parents. They also accused Trump of being racist and one pundit said Trump had done this to push his “White Supremacy” agenda.

Totally ignored was the fact that the program was an illegal and unconstitutional usurpation of power by former president Obama. The whole issue has been returned to the Congress that is the only branch of the government that has the authority to act.
