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.

Britain’s Prime Minister Lengthens Transitional Brexit Period http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8681-Britain’s-Prime-Minister-Lengthens-Transitional-Brexit-Period Britain’s Prime Minister will keep Britain in the European Union for another two years until at least 2021. 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.

Santorum Presses On With Graham-Cassidy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8680-Santorum-Presses-On-With-Graham-Cassidy Although Senator McCain announced he would not be voting for Graham-Cassidy, former Senator Rick Santorum said, “We will get this to the finish line.” The former senator said that every one is still working on the legislation and that by the time it is finished and John McCain is back in town, he would be able to look at it. There is a hearing scheduled on the bill for Monday. Santorum suggested that McCain might yet switch his vote back to supporting it. Santorum said, “I’m feeling very good about the reaction and the response that the bill has gotten, there’s a lot of support out there in the grassroots to repeal and replace Obamacare.” Even if the deadline passes without passage, he promised to continue working on the bill over the next year. 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.

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. The time is now to have a substantive discussion about rethinking Motor Voter.”

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.

Attendance at games continues to be very low in some venues with tickets for this week’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams selling on the secondary market for as little as $14. 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 combination of factors involved include the protests by players during the national anthem, the endless liberal political commentary by some broadcasters, and the generally poor play by many of the teams.

Global Warming Theory Takes Major Hit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8653-Global-Warming-Theory-Takes-Major-Hit A new comprehensive scientific study has blown a major hole in the concept of man-made global warming. The study published in Nature Geoscience has concluded that the computer models being used to claim that the planet is only a few years away from reaching dangerously high temperatures are badly flawed. 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.

Journalist Equates Arresting Looters with White Supremacy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8652-Journalist-Equates-Arresting-Looters-with-White-Supremacy The left has gotten to the point of claiming if you disagree with anything in its political agenda it is because you have to be a racist. 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.

Social Media Giants Facing Large Fines http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8651-Social-Media-Giants-Facing-Large-Fines Social media companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube are facing large fines that will be imposed by members of the European Union unless they can assure these countries that they will remove content posted by terrorists quickly. Nations like Belgium, France, and Germany have increasing concerns about the ability of terrorist groups to use social media platforms to radicalize, recruit, and train terrorists.

These terrorists are then turned lose to attack targets in Europe and have been very successful in some cases. The affected countries want social media to do a better job of identifying terrorist activity and then removing it within two hours. The firms are complaining that this is virtually impossible.

Keith Ellison Compares ICE to Nazis Rounding up Jews http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8650-Keith-Ellison-Compares-ICE-to-Nazis-Rounding-up-Jews House of Representative member Keith Ellison is the only Muslim member of the United States Congress, and in the past has been highly critical of the state of Israel and Jewish people in general. Now he is the vice chairman of the Democrat National Committee and is using his position to attack Trump and the other Republican leaders for wanting to enforce U.S. immigration laws.

In a recent speech he made the remarkable assertion that people in this country illegally, and face deportation are just like the Jews in Nazi Germany who were rounded up, put in concentration camps, and often executed. He also compared ICE officers to the Nazi brown shirts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Senator Graham Calls for Carbon Tax http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8624-Senator-Graham-Calls-for-Carbon-Tax Republican Senator Lindsey Graham announced that he was working on legislation to tax carbon dioxide. “I’m a Republican. 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.

Socialism a Success in Venezuela http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8622-Socialism-a-Success-in-Venezuela During his address at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, President Trump addressed the destruction of Venezuela. The president pointed out that Venezuela’s problem is not the poor implementation of socialism, but its successful implementation. "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.” "From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.” The president said that the goal of the United States was for “Venezuelans to recover their freedom and ‘restore their democracy.’” One person on Twitter posted, “Socialism begins with questions like, ‘Why can’t we provide healthcare for everyone?’ It ends with question like this: Can rabbit meat save Venezuela from going hungry?”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.”

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.

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.

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.

Another Storm Threatens the Caribbean http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8593-Another-Storm-Threatens-the-Caribbean The recovery from Hurricane Irma has not really gotten started yet, but now there is another threat developing in the Atlantic. Tropical Storm Maria is now a category 1 hurricane and is expected to strengthen to a category 3 storm, or even higher. A category 3 hurricane is considered a major storm with winds of 111 to 129 miles per hour.

The path of Maria is currently going to take it over some of the some of the same islands hit hardest by Irma, including Barbuda, and the Virgin Islands. It is also possible that the storm will continue on a path that will take it Florida somewhere.

At least eleven police officers were injured including one female officer who had her jaw broken by a brick thrown by a rioter. A local reporter was also attacked and several dozen rioters have been arrested on a variety of charges.

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.

Toy Store May File For Bankruptcy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8590--Toy-Store-May-File-For-Bankruptcy Toys ‘R’ Us hired bankruptcy lawyers last week. The company is facing repayment of a $400 million bond in 2018. It has $7.5 billion in outstanding debt. The hiring of bankruptcy attorney’s sent the 2018 bond crashing to 43 cents on the dollar. Compounding its financial problems, the company is losing sales to more online competition. 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.”

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.

All 1,800 residents have been evacuated to Antiqua where they are living in shelters. This is because Hurricane Irma has rendered the island uninhabitable.

The evacuees include almost 500 school age children, and the island of Antiqua is struggling to find room in its schools for the children. Ambassador Ronald Sanders who represents both Antiqua and Barbuda in their embassy in the United States says that it may be years before the island is rebuilt.

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.

However, in what some pundits are calling the snowflake reaction the campus is offering counseling to students and faculty members who may be traumatized by the very idea that is a conservative is being allowed to speak on campus.

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.

The symptoms include mild brain trauma, loss of hearing, headaches, and loss of cognitive ability. 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.

Japan Issues Dire Warning about North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8565-Japan-Issues-Dire-Warning-about-North-Korea The Japanese military has issued a dire warning to the United States and Great Britain. According to intelligence source the Japanese believe that Kim Jong Un is preparing to launch an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that is capable of traveling 8,000 miles. This puts most of the United States and Great Britain within range of being hit by one of these missiles carrying a nuclear weapon.

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.

Trump Visits Storm Ravaged Florida http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8564-Trump-Visits-Storm-Ravaged-Florida The President and First Lady visited Naples, Florida yesterday where they met with residents of a badly damaged trailer park. They handed out food and water that had been purchased by the first couple with their own funds. The President assured the people of Florida that the federal government has their backs, and the state will be rebuilt better than ever.

His visit was very well received, and he promised to make more visits to Florida, including the hardest area, the Florida Keys. The President also promised to visit the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rica sometime in the next few weeks.

More Political Theater Coming http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8563-More-Political-Theater-Coming Representative Trey Gowdy said that he has “sufficient factual basis” to recall former FBI Director James Comey. Gowdy wants to question Comey on why he “decided not to charge Hillary Clinton before interviewing key witnesses.” “I can tell you because I’ve seen with my own eyes he made up his mind before he interviewed her.” How far back, whether it was two weeks or two months, quite frankly is immaterial to me. 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.

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.

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.

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.”

No Grant of Absolution From Hillary http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8538-No-Grant-of-Absolution-From-Hillary Hillary Clinton is unwilling to forgive those women who did not vote for her in the election. 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 House Committee on Natural Resources passed the SHARE Act through the committee on Wednesday. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8537-The-House-Committee-on-Natural-Resources-passed-the-SHARE-Act-through-the-committee-on-Wednesday. 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.

Amendment to Sunset War Authorizations Fails http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8536-Amendment-to-Sunset-War-Authorizations-Fails Senator Rand Paul spoke in favor of his amendment “that would have allowed war authorizations, created in the wake of al-Qaida’s 9/11 strikes, to lapse after six months.” Senator Paul is seeking new and updated authorizations for military operation is Iraq, Syria, Yemen and in other countries. 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.

Liberals Want Global Warming Skeptics Jailed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-8530-Liberals-Want-Global-Warming-Skeptics-Jailed As was feared and expected last night’s “Hand in Hand” telethon to raise money for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma turned political with several of the performers blaming the storms on Global Warming and criticizing those who disagree with them. 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.

He did not join his father like his brother Kahlid who died trying to protect his father at the compound in Pakistan. Now Hamza has emerged and seems poised to be a unifying force for al Qaeda factions and other terrorist groups.

He has started doing propaganda videos calling for a revival of Jihad against the west and for the unity of jihadist groups. He is apparently being listened to and is becoming a force that will soon have to be dealt with.

However, on Monday night the questions were different, but with a definite biased political bent. Essentially, the contestants were asked to respond to questions designed to criticize President Donald Trump. The questions concerned Russian collusion, climate change, comments following Charlottesville, and confederate statues. All of the contestants gave the politically correct answers the judges obviously wanted except for Miss Missouri who declared Trump innocent of the collusion charges.

However, many are finding that the help is not free. A policy adopted by the department in 1956 requires Americans to sign a promissory note promising that they will repay to the government all of the costs associate with their rescue and evacuation.

Hurricane Irma is not Done Yet http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5810-Hurricane-Irma-is-not-Done-Yet During the violent path that Irma has followed in the past week, whole islands in the Caribbean have been almost totally destroyed, the states of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina have had many homes and businesses damaged or totally destroyed. While not as powerful as it was feared to be when it hit the United States the hurricane has left millions without power and the storms wrath is not over yet.

The heavy rain and storm surge is still causing rivers to rise and flood more homes and businesses. Recovery will take a long time and cost billions.

Attorneys Investigated For Deleting Hillary’s Emails http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5809-Attorneys-Investigated-For-Deleting-Hillary’s-Emails Maryland’s state bar will have to investigate three attorneys who helped Hillary Clinton delete thousands of emails.

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.

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.”

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. An equestrian center in an Atlanta suburb volunteered to board 150 horses. So far 40 have arrived and more are coming.

BackChannel Communications In White House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5781-BackChannel-Communications-In-White-House The president’s son-in-law helped Senator Dick Durbin promote DACA amnesty. 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.”

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.

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.

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 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.

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. He said that he doubted Congress would be able to lower the corporate tax rate to 15 percent. Lowering the tax rate on businesses was a key part of the Trump agenda.

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.

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.

Feinstein Under Fire; Liberals Try to Remove Her http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5753-Feinstein-Under-Fire;-Liberals-Try-to-Remove-Her Senator Dianne Feinstein is under fire for her remarks to a nominee for a federal appeals court. 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.

Iranians Using Blackmail to Influence Media Coverage http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5752-Iranians-Using-Blackmail-to-Influence-Media-Coverage Reporters Without Borders, an independent group of journalists that monitors and reports on attempts to intimidate and influence members of the media worldwide has issued a scathing report about Iran. 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.

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.

Roy Moore Leading Luther Strange In Alabama Senate Race http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5744-Roy-Moore-Leading-Luther-Strange-In-Alabama-Senate-Race The race for the Republican nomination for Alabama’s open Senate seat is tipping towards Judge Roy Moore. In a recent poll, Judge Moore has a 16-point lead. He has been picking up the endorsement of key conservatives and members of the Republican party. “Moore is very strong with Christian conservatives, and he’s very strong with Republican voters who identify as conservative or very conservative” in the most recent poll. Several weeks ago, incumbent Senator Luther Strange signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Schumer asking that the filibuster rule in the Senate be kept. But after getting heat from Judge Moore, Senator Strange withdrew his signature from the letter. The withdrawal has compounded Strange’s perception as a flip-flopper. Not helping Senator Strange is the amount of money that McConnell has poured into the race. Strange is seen as someone who is bought and paid for by McConnell and the Washington establishment. Alabama voters see Judge Moore as a supporter of President Trump’s agenda and specifically his immigration policies.

Naval Certifications Expired http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5743-Naval-Certifications-Expired At least one-third of the warfare training certifications for the U.S. Navy’s destroyers and cruisers in Japan expired in June. Naval ships “require more than a dozen training certification, including mobility and seamanship and warfare capabilities like ballistic missile defense and surface warfare.” The Defense Department’s quest to assert American military might abroad has forced the Navy “to shorten, eliminate, or defer training and maintenance periods to support these high deployment rates.” The Government Accountability Office “found that incidents of degraded or out-of-service equipment nearly doubled from 2009 to 2014.” Because of deployment pressures, the Navy has adopted a ‘train on the margins’ approach to training. Crews “trained while underway or in the limited time between underway periods.” While the Navy has created plans to change operational schedules and increase training, none of the plans have been implemented.

Breakdown in Security http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5742-Breakdown-in-Security Security clearances are being issued on an interim basis because the backlog is so great. However, people who should not be getting security clearances are getting them. Currently 100,000 people hold interim clearances while they are waiting for a full background check. Daniel Payne, head of the Defense Security Service says, “I’ve got murderers who have access to classified information, I have rapists. I have pedophiles. I have people involved in child porn. This is the risk we are taking.” The temporary clearances affect “the Defense Department and its associated industrial base.” The intelligence agencies never grant temporary clearances. “The Pentagon has little choice but to offer interim clearances to keep weapons development programs at full steam,” said Payne. “If we did not give these individuals interim clearances, the production of these programs would shut down. It would have a horrific impact.” After one major security clearance contractor lost its contract with the government, the backlog of security clearances sharply increased.

Estonia Calls For Internet Censorship http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5741-Estonia-Calls-For-Internet--Censorship Estonia currently heads the rotating presidency of the European Union. According to a leaked document, Estonia is calling on members of the EU to increase internet censorship. The European Digital Rights group said that Estonia is pushing member states to “follow in the footsteps of China regarding online censorship.” Estonia is proposing “two options for each of the two most controversial proposals: the so-called ‘link tax’ or ancillary copyright and the upload filter.” According to the European Digital Rights group, both censorship proposals would be “harmful to a free and open internet.” Estonia’s call for censorship is surprising considering that Estonia was under the control of the Soviet Union from 1944 to 1991. The country’s citizens experienced crackdowns on freedom of speech, religion and spying by secret police.

South Korea Plans for War http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5740-South-Korea-Plans-for-War South Korea will develop a new missile capable of destroying North Korea’s underground military facilities. The new design concept would fuse “two ballistic missiles into one, giving it the capability of holding a 4,000-pound warhead. Until recently, South Korea’s defense has been hampered by a 1,102 pound cap on warhead size that was set in 2012. President Trump and South Korea’s President Moon Jae agree to remove the cap. South Korea is also developing a “decapitation strike team” that would be capable of taking out the North Korean leadership in the event of war. North Korea is believed to have invested heavily in underground missile facilities in order to ensure their survivability during war. The country’s nuclear enrichment facilities are also believed to be underground.

President Stumps For Tax Plan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5739-President-Stumps-For-Tax-Plan President Trump took his campaign for tax reform on the road Wednesday. The president flew to North Dakota. The president said that under the plan being developed by the White House and Congress, 95 percent of taxpayers could file their returns on a single page. “We’re giving hardworking Americans their time back and we’re giving them their money back,” said the president. “All told, it will be the greatest tax reduction in the history of our country, greater than ever before, so that’s going to be something. You’ll see a rocket ship. You will see something happen like you’ve never seen.” The president said that the American system of taxation is a “massive barrier to America’s economic comeback.” He went on to say that compliance with the tax code costs the economy millions of jobs and billions in waste on paperwork and compliance. The president called on Democrats to support his plan. He pointed out that in 1986 there was a Democratic majority in the House and a Republican in the White House and still Congress passed tax reform.

Article VI of the Constitution says, “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Officer or public Trust under the United States.” Undeterred, Senator Durbin asked Barrett, “Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” Senator Feinstein lectured Barrett on her Catholicism saying, “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.” The Senate Judiciary Committee has received 73 letters of endorsement on behalf of Barrett from law professors from across the country. The endorsements rated her “first-rate.” Barrett assured the committee that as an appellate judge, she would be bound to follow Supreme Court precedent. Currently there 162 judicial vacancies pending. The president has nominated 32 individuals so far.

Obamacare Failing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5737-Obamacare-Failing Obamacare’s individual market is near collapse. Premiums are rising and health insurers are leaving the marketplace, according to insurance commissioners. Insurance commissioners from Tennessee and Oklahoma described the severity of situation. In Oklahoma, the insurance market began 2014 with five providers and now has one. One insurer incurred losses of $300 million. Insurance premiums have increased 130 percent over the last four years and 30,000 people have left the market because they cannot afford the premiums. “What we have now in our individual market is the consequence of encumbering a functional market with the burdens of becoming a federal tax distribution system,” said Oklahoma’s insurance commissioner. Tennessee has experienced a similar collapse. In 2010 there were a dozen insurers for the individual market and now the state is down to one provider. Tennessee’s insurance commissioner said, “[O]ver the last four years, our consumers have seen premium prices skyrocket while their plan choices have diminished.” The commissioners offered suggestions on how to resolve the crisis by expanding the use of health savings accounts. Allowing people to choose affordable high-deductible health plans, push for transparency in pricing of medical services, and address the cost of prescription drugs.

Make the EPA Small Again http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5736-Make-the-EPA-Small-Again The Environmental Protection Agency is on its way to employing the lowest number of workers since the end of the Reagan Administration. Congress capped the number of people the EPA can employ at 15,000. Hundreds of employees have opted for early retirement since President Trump’s inauguration. “Several employees who have claimed they are retiring in protest of the new Republican administration, have been eligible for early retirement.” If retirements remain on schedule, the EPA will employ 14,459 employees by the end of September. Currently, 20.17 percent of EPA employees are eligible to retire immediately. The administration’s goal is to reduce the EPA’s workforce by 25 percent. The EPA has two buyout programs that provide cash payments to encourage early retirement. Maximum payments are $25,000.

President Strikes Deal With Democrats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5735-President-Strikes-Deal-With-Democrats President Trump struck a deal with Democratic leaders to raise the debt ceiling, provide Hurricane Harvey relief, and keep the government funded until some point in December. As the president was leaving for North Dakota, he specifically named Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer saying, “We agreed to a three-month extension on debt ceiling, which they consider to be sacred — very important — always we’ll agree on debt ceiling automatically because of the importance of it.” Although he is phasing out former President Obama’s DACA, President Trump suggest that if Congress passed legislation resolving the issue, he might sign it. By siding with Democrats to resolve the immediate budget crisis, the president showed Republicans that he will try to get things done without them. Republicans have been unable or unwilling to deliver on the Trump agenda. They talked about repealing Obamacare for seven years but when they had the opportunity to do it, they walked away from it.

It shows the desperation of the people in the country that has an economy on the verge of total collapse. Very few people in the country are getting three meals a day and children can be seen rummaging through garbage just to get anything to eat.

It has been reported that the average citizen has unintentionally lost 19 pounds in 2016. Animals are even being stolen from zoos by the starving population. Venezuelan citizens are also furious over the fact that Maduro has offered $5 million to Hurricane Harvey relief in an apparent attempt to endear him to the international left.

Former candidate Clinton wrote a glowing forward to the book that got into trouble for plagiarism even before it was released.

CNN reported that an email Shillady said was sent by him to Clinton the morning after the election was actually sent by another pastor. An investigation was launched by the publisher and it was soon learned that the book was heavily plagiarized. The publisher has pulled the book from the shelves and plans to destroy all existing copies.

He has stated that the schools are a sanctuary for illegal alien students and their families.

Interestingly, this comes just a few days after 7 more people were killed and 35 were wounded in weekend shootings in the city. Critics point out that the continued gang violence in the city appears to be of little concern to the mayor when there are illegal aliens to be protected.

He has immediately been criticized for doing what his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said he was legally obligated to do. Most legal experts agree that what Obama did in setting up DACA violated the Constitution that gives exclusive authority over immigration and naturalization to Congress.

By his actions, Trump has put the burden back where it belongs, on the legislative branch of government. What it does now remains to be seen.

Hurricane Irma is a Potential Killer Storm http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5728-Hurricane-Irma-is-a-Potential-Killer-Storm As bad as Hurricane Harvey was for Texas and Louisiana, Hurricane Irma is on a path to do massive destruction to Caribbean Islands and Florida. However, Irma is different from Harvey. The storm surge along the coast from Harvey was not as large as was feared, so the major damage was caused when the storm stalled out and dropped huge amounts of rain on Texas and Louisiana.

Irma is not expected to stall and will probably deliver only ten inches of rain in some locations. That is still a lot of rain, but nothing close to the almost 50 inches that came down from Harvey. However, the storm surge from Irma is expected to be much larger and also cause major flooding.

Robbie Travers posted, “I’m glad we could bring these barbarians a step closer to collecting their 72 virgins.” Several complaints were filed against Travers. “Mocking Isis allegedly made Islamic and minority students feel ‘threatened’ and ‘unsafe’” said one complaint. Others complaints said that Muslim students were made to feel uncomfortable. A spokesman for the university said, “Complaints alleging misconduct have been received against Mr. Travers and these are being investigated.” Travers defended himself on Facebook saying, “Afraid I’ve been a little more quiet as I have been accused of Islamophobia because I mocked Isis, and I’m being investigated on such a ground by my University.” Have engaged legal advice to dismiss this nonsense. Wish me luck,” wrote Travers. A spokesman for the university said, “We are committed to providing an environment in which all members of the university community treat each other with dignity and respect and our code of student conduct sets out clear expectation of behavior.”

In East Germany, the secret police were very effective in getting citizens to watch and report on their family members, friends, and workers.

And because government workers won’t be around to search, pillage, and grope passengers, evacuees will have to find another longer way out or hunker down and stay to get through the storm. Evacuees wanting to get out will have to travel by car on U.S. Highway 1 from Key West to the Florida mainland. The Mayor of Key West expressed hope that the head of Florida’s Emergency Management would address the issue and keep the airport open and allow citizens to evacuate on Thursday.

Campus Carry Repeal Up For Vote http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5724-Campus-Carry-Repeal-Up-For-Vote California politicians are preparing to vote on legislation that would repeal the authority of school district superintendents to allow campus carry for those with concealed carry permits. Although no crimes have been committed under the current law, Assemblyman Kevin McCarty wants to make sure government school teachers won’t be able to shoot back if attacked. Currently five school districts in California allow their teachers to carry on campus. In addition to repealing the campus carry, the legislation would also impose new restrictions on Federal Firearms License holders. It would “further restrict the open carry of an unloaded firearm on public property by including unincorporated areas as prohibited places.” Assemblyman Kevin McCarty said, “A safe learning environment is essential for our children to be successful in the classroom. That’s not possible if a school district allows armed civilians to roam California school campuses.”

Fears Over Kentucky’s Public Employee Pension System http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5723-Fears-Over-Kentucky’s-Public-Employee-Pension-System Retirements of public workers are increasing in Kentucky as “workers move to lock in payouts before any potential cuts go into effect.” In July there was a 20 percent jump in retirements of state workers. Kentucky’s public pension system faces a funding deficit of $33-$84 billion. Already increased funding contributions are coming from school budgets. On Monday, an independent consultant recommended changes that would force future retirees into a 401(k) type of retirement plan, cut payments to existing retirees, and raise the retirement age to 65. The consultant “recommended taking away all cost of living benefits that state and local government retirees received between 1996 and 2012.” Retirees could see a 25 percent rollback or more of their pension checks. The president of Kentucky Government Retirees promised to sue the legislature if cost of living adjustments are rolled back.

Sanctions Discussion http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5722-Sanctions-Discussion Russia’s UN ambassador called the rush for new sanctions against North Korea “a little premature.” American UN ambassador Nikki Haley admitted that additional sanctions would do little to get North Korea to change its behavior. “Do we think more sanctions are going to work on North Korea? Not necessarily. But what does it do? It cuts off the revenue that allows them to build ballistic missiles.” There are a range of sanctions that the United Nations Security Council could review including banning North Korean textile exports, restricting oil supplies into the country, preventing North Koreans from working overseas, and adding government officials to a blacklist. China’s foreign ministry said that it would participate in upcoming Security Council discussions. However, it is in China’s interest to maintain a stable North Korea. China does not want a refugee crisis if the North Korean government is toppled. And it does not want American and South Korean troops moving through North Korea up to the Chinese border.

Russia Condemns Nuclear Blast http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5721-Russia-Condemns-Nuclear-Blast Russian President Vladimir Putin warned against escalating the North Korean conflict. He said that further sanctions against North Korea would be “useless” and a “road to nowhere.” “Ramping up military hysteria in such conditions is senseless; it’s a dead end. It could lead to a global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life. There is no other way to solve the North Korean nuclear issue, save that of peaceful dialogue.” According to Putin, North Korea is convinced that after watching foreign interventions in Iraq and Libya the country needs nuclear weapons to act as a deterrent. “We all remember what happened with Iraq and Saddam Hussein. His children were killed, I think his grandson was shot, the whole country was destroyed and Saddam Hussein was hanged ... We all know how this happened and people in North Korea remember well what happened in Iraq. “They will eat grass but will not stop their [nuclear] programme as long as they do not feel safe.”

Manafort May Be Indicted http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5720-Manafort-May-Be-Indicted President Trump’s former campaign manager may be indicted for “money laundering or tax evasion.” Manafort’s legal troubles may stem from his “real estate dealing and foreign business activities.” The potential charges do not relate to the Russia collusion story. One of Manafort’s former aides said that Congressional committee investigating alleged Russian interference “appeared focused on finances and business relationships of the Trump family and top associates such as Paul Manafort and General Michael Flynn.” Special Counsel Mueller is using the federal grand jury to subpoena records related to Manafort’s business activities and to “compel witnesses to cooperate with the investigation.” In July, Manafort’s house in Virginia was raided and business records were seized.

Tesla Bailout Bill Scrapped http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5719-Tesla-Bailout-Bill-Scrapped California politicians ended a $3 billion bill that increased subsidies for electric vehicles. Critics of the legislation said that the bill “was short on details and failed to demonstrate exactly where the money would come from to pay for it.” The bill originally would have raised taxes on utilities but that was stripped. The legislation would have lowered rebates for “hydrogen and hybrid car purchases” and increased them for electric vehicles such as Tesla. Critics called it the “Tesla bailout.” The subsidy legislation was originally designed to help meet Governor Jerry Brown’s “goal of putting 1.5 million electric vehicles on the roads by 2025.” After killing the bill, lawmakers proposed that California’s Air Resources Board “research the best ways to provide electric vehicle rebate legislation by the end of 2018.

Obama Defends DACA http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5718-Obama-Defends-DACA Former President Obama spoke out against President Trump’s decision to end DACA. He called it “wrong”, “cruel”, and a “political decision.” During the first years of his presidency, President Obama made it clear that he did not have the power to change the immigration status of the “Dreamers.” The former president pointed out that he had asked Congress to send him legislation that unraveled the dilemma faced by the “Dreamers” but no such legislation ever arrived. Obama said that he went ahead with his executive order “based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion . . . because our immigration enforcement agencies have limited resources, and it makes sense to focus those resources on those who come illegally to this country to do us harm.” Attorney General Sessions called DACA “an ‘unconstitutional exercise’ of executive authority by Obama and said the Department of Justice could not defend such overreach.” Now Congress will have to exercise its rightful legislative authority and resolve the issue.

The Japanese are looking at a number of different options including having their citizens shelter in place inside the country if there is no time to carry out a full scale evacuation.

She ordered the students to leave her classroom immediately. Her actions appeared to stun the entire class. She then went on to compare wearing a t-shirt in support of Trump to wearing Nazi swastikas.

The school administration has apologized to the students and their parents and said that the shirts did not violate the school dress code.

However, the liberals in the California Legislature see thing another way. They are pushing legislation that would make violent acts committed by neo-Nazis and white supremacists acts of terrorism. However, ANTIFA is not included so they can be free to do anything they want.

The South American nation appears to be the site of an increasingly violent civil war that has started as a result of Maduro’s power grab.

The Venezuelan people have been suffering for several years under Maduro, who has stolen most of the proceeds from oil exports to support the lavish lifestyle that he and his supporters in the government have adopted. In the meantime, his people are starving and cannot get basic necessities. In addition to Iran and Hezbollah, Pompeo reports that other bad actors supporting Maduro include the Cubans, Russians, and Chinese.

She says that is the only way that a diplomatic solution can be found.

She also said that the North Korean dictator seems to be “begging for war”. This is an ascertain that seems to be supported by a report from South Korean military intelligence who believe that North Korea is preparing yet another missile test.

Judge Fines Anti-Abortion Journalist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5710-Judge-Fines-Anti-Abortion-Journalist A district court judge in San Francisco “fined the undercover video journalist who exposed Planned Parenthoods alleged involvement in the fetal trafficking industry and his attorneys $200,000 for publishing online video footage of abortionists.” Federal Judge William Orrick said that he hoped the large fine would force defendant David Daleiden and his attorneys to comply with his order that bars further releases of video footage. Daleiden has appealed the gag order to the Supreme Court, citing the unconstitutionality of the order and that it violates his First Amendment rights. Research shows Judge Orrick helped to open and run a Planned Parenthood clinic. A motion is pending to disqualify Orrick on the grounds of bias and prejudice. Planned Parenthood celebrated the ruling saying, “Today’s decision to move forward with the criminal case is a clear victory for those of us who believe in the courts and the laws of California.” While Planned Parenthood denies “wrongdoing in the alleged sale of aborted baby body parts, Planned Parenthood announced in October 2015 that it would not longer take payment for fetal tissue.

Moore plans to fill the void left by Jeff Sessions when he became Attorney General. Moore plans to “vet candidates for judicial nominations” thoroughly and properly. “I’m a very strict constructionist of the Constitution and I know how to question . . .candidates for judicial offices, and I think I would be very successful in the United States Senate in doing that because I think that there’s so many in the judiciary and legal establishment that don’t understand the Constitution. . . .” Moore “intends to seek out impeachment of judges—even U.S. Supreme Court Justices—when they overstep their bounds.” Moore agrees with the economic nationalism of the president and it works well with voters in Alabama. Moore went on to say that not only does a senator have vote on national issues, but senators also have to “look at the effects of policies on the people of their state.” The runoff between Judge Moore and Luther strange is coming up at the end of September. The winner will run against the Democratic nominee.

As the news of the demolition went viral “some 2,000 Church members gathered at the property to block the demolition, forcing the workers and security officials to leave the venue.” Members of the church expect that there will be more to come. Watchdog groups have “warned of a campaign to destroy churches and suppress the rise of Christianity.” Religious groups such as the Christian “house churches” and Roman Catholic Church do not register with the state and have “no official status in the country and [are] subject to regular sanctions and arbitrary harassment.”

EU Gets Snipy With British Over Brexit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5707-EU-Gets-Snipy-With-British-Over-Brexit The European Union’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is threatening to “teach the British people and others what leaving the EU means.” “There are extremely serious consequences of leaving the single market and it hasn’t been explained to the British people. We intend to teach people… what leaving the single market means,” said Barnier. Britain’s negotiator David Davis said that Barnier is merely trying to get Britain to concede to pay 100 billion euros as the price of exiting the union. “What [Barnier’s] concerned about is that he’s not getting the answer [he wants] on money and they’ve set this up to try and create pressure on us.” David said, “I’m not going to allow them to use that time pressure to force us to do x, y, or z.” The UK disagrees with the European Union’s 100 billion euro bill. The House of Lord’s EU financial affairs committee has gone so far as to say that there is no legal basis for the UK to pay any of it. “We’re going through this very systematically, very British way, very pragmatic way of doing it and of course [Barnier is] finding it difficult, which is why this stance in the press conference,” said Davis.

The health care costs associated with obesity are an estimated $150 billion a year. Billions more are lost because of a decline in worker productivity. The obesity epidemic is cutting into military recruiting. “70 percent of today’s youth are not fit to serve in the military due to obesity or being overweight, criminal records, drug misuse or educational deficits.” The Pentagon is spending an estimated $1 billion a year on additional health care costs for overweight troops and their families. West Virginia weighs in with the highest obesity rate of 37.7 percent. Colorado comes in at the bottom of the list with 22 percent of residents being obese. “Obesity rates are around 30 percent higher among adults without a college education and with incomes below $15,000 compared with other adults.”

Spencer’s ebook, “An Inconvenient Deception” takes on the weaknesses, bad policy, and falsehoods in Gore’s new book. Gore “points to extreme weather events as evidence of man-made global warming.” However, Roy Spencer says that everything that Gore shows in his movie and writes in his book actually “happens naturally.” Gore blames the rise of the ocean on global warming. But Spencer points out that the “seal level has been rising steadily at about one inch per decade for over 150 years, long before CO2 emissions could be blamed.” Gore claims that corn and wheat yields in China have been decreasing “because of rising global average temperature.” Actually, “agricultural yields around the world have continued to increase, with no sign of negative effects from global warming. His claim that corn and whet yields in China have decreased in recent decades is, quite simply, false,” said Spencer.

During the former president’s final press conference, he vowed to speak out against “efforts to round up kids who have gown up here and for all practical purposes are American kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country . . . .“ By posting on social media, the former president will avoid having video and audio footage of himself playing endlessly on broadcast media. Stirring up Republican voters is not what the former president wants to do. Nevertheless, with Obama entering into the fray over DACA, it may complicate matters for Republican leadership in the House and Senate. They cannot risk being seen as doing the former president’s bidding. If they do nothing, Democrats will shred Republicans as being cruel to illegal children.

How to Punish North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5701-How-to-Punish-North-Korea The South Korean government is calling on the United States to help “punish” North Korea for its test of a hydrogen bomb. South Korea is looking for ways to increase the country’s offensive missile capabilities as well as installing additional missile defense batteries “both of which signal a more militaristic approach to dealing with Pyongyang.” The Minister of National Defense, Song Young Moo, is asking the United States to deploy “aircraft carriers and nuclear powered submarines to help punish the North. While the placement of Naval ships in the region could “signal U.S. resolve and show incredible force,” the U.S. deployed two aircraft carriers and two submarines in April yet North Korea did not back down. By escalating the military presence in the region, the risks of miscalculation increases.

New releases are not producing the returns at the box office that they are supposed to. The returns have been so dismal that the stock of movie theater companies is tanking. There are many theories floating around about the cause, including the competition from sites like Netflix where people can watch movies for much less than a ticket to a traditional theater.

However, another theory gaining widespread acceptance is that during the 2016 election cycle many Americans got tired of the Hollywood elites telling them who they should vote for and later calling them racists and ignorant for not following their advice.

Trump to End DACA Program http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5698-Trump-to-End-DACA-Program President Trump is preparing to end the controversial DACA program that Obama put in place by executive order. The program temporarily blocked the deportation of people who were originally brought to the country as minors by their parents who entered the U.S. illegally. They were given the opportunity to stay if they applied for work permits. The program is also referred to as the “Dreamer” program.

The constitutionality of the program has always been in doubt and ten states are preparing to file a suit to get it stopped if Trump doesn’t act. The President has also been advised by the Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Congress is responsible for immigration so Trump will defer cancelation of the program for six months to give Congress a chance to act.

In fact, Abbott has suggested that the state of Texas alone will need $120 billion to $180 billion.

This far exceeds the cost of Hurricane Sandy and even Hurricane Katrina. One question being raised is whether the recovery packages in congress will be tied into other issues facing it like the debt ceiling and the budget.

Already Secretary of Defense James Mattis has said that Trump had asked for and received a briefing on all available military options. Mattis issued a stern warning to Kim Jong Un that if there was any threat to the United States, our territories, or any of our allies there would be a massive and overwhelming military response.

Trump also indicated that there would be sanctions placed on any country doing business with the North Koreans. This is understood by many to include China and Russia.

Trump Reverses Obama Waiver of Welfare Work Requirements http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5695-Trump-Reverses-Obama-Waiver-of-Welfare-Work-Requirements In 2012 then President Barack Obama used an executive order to allow states to waive work requirements for welfare recipients receiving money from the Federal program Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. As the name says it is designed to be a temporary program so there was incentive for people to find work. The Obama order changed the program so that people could be on it indefinitely without even having to look for a job.

The message from the Trump administration is clear. If you want to receive temporary assistance from the government you must be actively seeking work. This encourages families to become self-sustaining, and economically independent once again.

Obama Wants More Taxpayer Money http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5694-Obama-Wants-More-Taxpayer-Money President Donald Trump donates his entire presidential salary to charity and has donated $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief. On the other hand Barack Obama has asked for a large increase in the money he receives as a former president. The base presidential pension is $205,700 but former presidents can request more, Obama wants $236,000 next year, more than any other former president.

Obama’s D.C. office will cost taxpayers $536,000 next year. In total, Obama has asked for a total of $1,153,000 which exceeds that being received by any other former president. The Obama’s are not exactly living in poverty. He has already received an estimated $60 million for a book deal and speaking engagements, and is expected to earn hundreds of millions more.

North Korea Claims Test of Hydrogen Bomb http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5693-North-Korea-Claims-Test-of-Hydrogen-Bomb North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un claims that his country has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, a weapon far more powerful than an ordinary atomic bomb. The regime is also claiming that the bomb is small enough to be placed on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that we know the North Korean military has.

Seismic activity detected in North Korea has apparently confirmed the test. This dramatically increases the threats of North Korea using one or more missiles to attack the United States or our allies, or selling the weapons to another rogue nation like Iran or terrorist groups like ISIS.

Government Teacher Can’t Handle ‘Make America Great Again‘ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5692-Government-Teacher-Can’t-Handle-‘Make-America-Great-Again‘ A government school teacher in Georgia told two students to leave her classroom because they were wearing shirts that said “Make America Great Again.” She asked them to go outside and turn their shirts inside out. A conservative student questioned the teacher as to why she was asking the students to leave. The teacher compared the slogan to the neo-Nazis. She said, “Just like you cannot wear a swastika to school, you cannot wear ‘Make America Great Again’ like that.” The teacher told the offending students, “Please go, at least for this class. I don’t care what you do in other classes.” This is not the first incident of government teachers harassing students with conservative views. In January, a middle school teacher in Washington state told a student that wearing a shirt with the slogan ‘Build the wall’ was like wearing a shirt with a swastika.

Second Amendment Groups Ask For Review of California Waiting Period http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5691-Second-Amendment-Groups-Ask-For-Review-of-California-Waiting-Period California’s ten day waiting period may come under scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Calguns Foundation are asking the high Court to review the law. The waiting period was partially overturned in 2014 by the district court. The waiting period could not be applied to people who already owned firearms. U.S. District Judge Ishii wrote, “There is no evidence that a ‘cooling off period,’ such as provided but the 10-day waiting period, prevents impulsive acts of violence by individuals who already possess a firearm.” However, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the ruling of the lower court. Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation said, “While this case is about waiting periods, it is also about something more. It’s about challenging a gun regulation that is designed more to discourage exercise of the Second Amendment than it is about preventing crime.” The Supreme Court’s new term begins the first Monday in October.

Tying Hurricane Relief with Debt Ceiling Increase http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5690-Tying-Hurricane-Relief-with-Debt-Ceiling-Increase Treasury Secretary Mnuchin wants a clean bill to raise the debt ceiling, meaning no spending cuts. And he wants to tie it somehow to disaster relief for Hurricane Harvey. “At this point, we need to put politics aside. We need to make sure that we can get to Texas the appropriate amount of money to rebuild the state. It is absolutely critical, and the president is committed to making sure that the states have the money that they need." Mnuchin went on to warn that if Congress appropriates the disaster money without raising the debt spending limit, the Treasury will not have the authority to borrow the money. The Trump administration is asking Congress to appropriate $7.85 billion as a down payment for disaster relief. $7.4 billion will go to FEMA and $450 million will go to the Small Business Administration’s disaster loan program. With Hurricane Harvey, Mnuchin said Congress will have to act earlier than the end of September to raise the debt ceiling.

California Governor to Collude With Russians http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5689-California-Governor-to-Collude-With-Russians Governor Jerry Brown flew to Vladivostok, Russia on Sunday to participate in an economic cooperation conference. The event will be hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin is expected to give the opening speech. It is not clear that Brown will meet with Putin. Governor Brown will participate in a panel discussion to look for areas of opportunity to cooperate. Governor Brown is expected to “promote what he refers to as sustainable investments in de-carbonizing the planet.” “Every government and every business is responsible for making this radical turn and from Victorville to Vladivostok, California will continue to lead the charge,” Brown said Thursday. Funding for the trip comes from grants originating from the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation. The meeting comes after Trump campaign and administration officials have had their Russian connections examined for collusion.

Diplomatic Tit-For-Tat Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5688-Diplomatic-Tit-For-Tat-Heats-Up The American government’s seizure of three Russian diplomatic missions in the U.S. was met with severe condemnation by the Russian government. The State Department gave the Russians three days to vacate consular buildings in San Francisco, New York, and Washington D.C. The United States retaliated for Russian demanding cuts in staff at American diplomatic missions in Russia. Russia’s statement said, "We urge the US authorities to come to their senses and to immediately return the Russian diplomatic facilities. Otherwise the USA will bear the total blame for the ongoing degradation of the relations between our countries, on which the current condition of the global stability and international security largely depends." Russian officials said, “At present, the US special services supported by armed police are in control of the seized buildings.” The current degradation in relations from the two countries stems from America accusations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Prime Minister’s Wife May Be Indicted http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5686-Prime-Minister’s-Wife-May-Be-Indicted The wife of Prime Minister Netanyahu is likely to be indicted on corruption charges in the next ten days. Corruption charges were recommended by police in 2016. Sarah Netanyahu is suspected of fraud and breach of trust issues. She allegedly used public funds to buy food, pay for chefs, billed the government for hosing private events and used public funds for furniture. The results of a privately funded polygraph test were released on Saturday. The test showed that she was telling the truth about some of the charges against her. However, polygraph tests are not admissible in Israeli courts. Protestors gathered outside the home of the Israeli attorney general and demeaned that the Netanyahus be indicted. The prime minister is also under investigation for corruption and may be indicted in the future.

Navy To Increase Patrol in South China Sea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5685-Navy-To-Increase-Patrol-in-South-China-Sea The United States Navy will now schedule naval patrols in the South China Sea so as “to establish a more prominent presence in the region.” U.S. Pacific Command will conduct “freedom-of-navigation operations” two to three times a month in the region. China claims sovereignty over the waters and islands in the South China Sea. China seeks to have a dominate influence in the area and resents American warships in the area. During the Obama administration only four freedom-of-navigation operations were conducted. Since President Trump entered office, the U.S. has conducted three navigation operations. The increased naval operations in the South China Sea come as the U.S. is pressuring China to do more to reign in North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and threats.

President To End DACA http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5684-President-To-End-DACA President Trump will end DACA on Tuesday, though with a six month delay of enforcement. President Obama created the program to give illegal immigrants who were brought into the country as minors a way to obtain work permits. Nearly 800,000 people have received permits under the program. President Trump consulted with his Attorney General Jeff Session before deciding to end the program. Sessions reportedly told the president that Congress is responsible for the country’s immigration laws Speaker Ryan and many fellow Republicans support allowing so called Dreamers to remain in the United States. The six month delay would give Congress the time needed to write legislation and pass it before DACA’s protections expire.

The government called the detonation a “perfect success.” The U.S. Geological Survey called the resulting earthquake a magnitude 6.3. North Korea says that its development of nuclear weapons “is part of a defensive effort to build a viable nuclear deterrent that can target U.S. cities. China’s government “expressed firm opposition and strong condemnation.” China called upon North Korea to “stop taking erroneous actions that deteriorate the situation.” President Trump tweeted, “North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.” President Trump also took on South Korea’s government for trying to placate North Korea, tweeting, “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!” U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis warned North Korea of “a massive military response” if it threatens the U.S., territories, or allies. President Trump warned that the United States could stop trading with any country that does business with North Korea.

The European Union is increasing the number of asylum seekers by 20,000 a year but the UN agency wants that number to increase by double digits. The EU has submitted a new proposal to accept migrants in Africa instead of having them make their way to Europe before being considered for asylum. A spokesman for the UN Refugee Agency said “Europe is very stable compared to other continents, there are more than one million refugees in Uganda alone. Germany this week “signed a new agreement with the Egyptians to open an asylum reception center in Egypt. The French are also considering reception facilities in Chad and Niger. At least one pro immigrant group is unhappy with Germany’s plan to open asylum centers overseas. A spokesman for ProAsyl said, It is inconceivable that the Chancellor has betrayed European values in such a way….”

Corey Payne and Kayla Harris allege that the sunglasses they bought through Amazon to watch the eclipse “failed to provide adequate eye protection and subsequently partially blinded the couple.” They claim to now suffer from “blurriness, a central blind spot, increased sensitivity, changes in perception of color, and distorted vision.” Amazon made an effort to remove faulty sunglasses prior to the eclipse, but Payne claims not to have received any warning from Amazon. The suit wants funding for “medical monitoring,” monetary damages, punitive damages, and legal fees and costs.

President To Decide Fate of DACA http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5680-President-To-Decide-Fate-of-DACA President Trump will make a decision by Tuesday about the illegal immigrants known as Dreamers. On the chopping block is President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Under President Obama, illegal immigrants brought to America as children were given legal status. During the campaign, candidate Trump seemed to indicate that he would “immediately terminate” DACA. However, after becoming president, Trump said that Dreamers “shouldn’t be very worried” about being deported. When the president failed to end DACA, ten state attorneys general announced in June that they would sue to end DACA if the government did not stop issuing permits by September 5. Under that scenario, the permits would expire over a two year period and the beneficiaries would revert to their pre-2012 status. It is unclear if Immigration and Customs Enforcement would take steps to deport them.

California Looks To Cash In On Hurricane Aid http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5679-California-Looks-To-Cash-In-On-Hurricane-Aid California’s politicians want to cash in on any legislation that sends emergency aid to Texas. California says that it needs $20 billion to repair the Central Valley flood control infrastructure. The American Society of Civil Engineers said that California has a $65 billion deficit in infrastructure investment particularly in levees and flood control. California’s politicians have so far refused to spend state money upgrading the state’s flood control infrastructure. Environmentalists point out that “climate models unanimously project increased drought in the American Southwest.” And that money should be directed to preserve California’s coast line from rising sea levels. However, record rains over the winter have put increased pressure on the state’s flood control systems. More water flowing through the system earlier in the year has a significant impact on how California manages the system.

No Border Wall, No Government Shut Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5678-No-Border-Wall,-No-Government-Shut-Down The White House is backing away from its ultimatum to have the border wall funded or shut down the government. The prospects of getting the government’s budget finished by the end of September are remote. So Republicans plan to fund the government through a short-term funding deal. President Trump assured supporters in Arizona that the border wall would be funded. But the White House conceded late in the week that the $1.6 billion in border wall funding does not need to be in the short-term budget deal. The backdown comes as the House Freedom Caucus members said that they would support a continuing resolution even though it did not contain funding for the wall. The administration plans to press Congress for funding when the continuing budget resolution expires in December. However, Congress is notorious for passing endless continuing resolutions and not passing a full budget. It is possible that the president may be in the same position in December and have to forego funding for his wall.

He will be the country’s most expensive ex-president. Under a law passed in the 1950s, former presidents receive an office, expenses, and a pension. The law was originally designed to lift Harry Truman out of poverty so that a former president would not live in squalor. Harry Truman cited his reverence for the office of the president and refused to cash in. However many ex-presidents do quite well after the presidency, including speaking events and book advances for their memoirs. Despite the high pay, taxpayer funded luxuries continue. President Obama’s 8,198 square foot office expense will cost $536,000 in 2018. He will receive a pension payment of $236,000. Former presidents also receive Secret Service protection for the remainder of their lives.

Last week North Korea fired a missile over Japan towards Guam before breaking up in the ocean. Two days after North Korea’s show of force, the United States and South Korea conducted a mock bombing run by flying stealth fighters and two B-1B bombers over the Korean Peninsula. Putin wrote, “In Russia’s opinion the calculation that it is possible to halt North Korea’s nuclear missile programs exclusively by putting pressure on Pyongyang is erroneous and futile.”

In a precedent setting court case, the Kenyan Supreme Court nullified the election results. The Kenyan Supreme Court did not find wrong doing on the part of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. The court, however, did find that Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission “committed irregularities and illegalities in the transmission of results.” The court’s chief justice ruled the election “invalid, null, and void” saying that election observers “failed, neglected or refused to conduct the presidential election in a manner consistent with the dictates of the Constitution.” President Kenyatta said that he respected the court’s decision, but then criticized the justices saying “six people have decided that they will go against the will of the people.” Main opposition party leader, Raila Odinga cited irregularities and discrepancies and charged that seven million votes had been stolen. The two main parties agreed to hold new elections in the next 60 days.

To date, Democrats have successfully used delaying tactics to slow down President Trump’s political appointments. It’s possible that the same delaying strategy could be used to delay critical votes until Menendez returns to the U.S. Senate. Menendez is accused of doing political favors in exchange for gifts, vacations, and campaign contributions.

Salt Lake Nurse Arrested for Following Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5673-Salt-Lake-Nurse-Arrested-for-Following-Law On Friday, footage was released of a Utah nurse being arrested and manhandled by a Utah police detective. The arrest happened July 26th. Officer Jeff Payne was at University Hospital in Salt Lake City to get a blood draw from an unconscious patient. Nurse Alex Wubbels got her supervisor on speaker phone so the officer and everyone could hear and be certain of what was said. The unconscious patient could not give consent. He was not under arrest. And Officer Payne did not have an electronic warrant. The police department had agreed that at least one of these conditions had to be met before the hospital could cooperate with the police and allow a blood draw. Nurse Wubbels made it clear that she was doing what she was supposed to do. Although the supervisor was on the phone and giving guidance to Nurse Wubbels, Officer Payne made it clear that because Nurse Wubbels was the one saying, “No,” he had cause to arrest her. With video footage of the incident breaking Friday, the Salt Lake Police Department has been inundated with outraged tweets, emails, and phone calls demanding Detective Jeff Payne’s arrest and incarceration. So far the best the Salt Lake Police Department has been able to do is to promise a criminal investigation and to put Detective Payne on a taxpayer funded vacation, also known as Administrative Leave.

That is not a misprint; they are not asking that the army change the names of Fort Bragg, Fort Benning, and Fort Hood; they are demanding that they be shut down.

With this type of demand the SPLC is now allying itself with America’s enemies in ISIS, North Korea, Iran, and Russia. Once again it has exposed itself as an organization that is not interested in justice, but in the destruction of the United States.

He and other members of the committee have requested more information and documents from the new FBI director Christopher Wray.

If true, the decision not to prosecute Clinton was a political decision made while the investigation was still going on.

Obama’s Reportedly Looking at Expensive Property in Martha’s Vineyard http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5667-Obama’s-Reportedly-Looking-at-Expensive-Property-in-Martha’s-Vineyard President Donald Trump is donating $1million of his personal money to the relief efforts in Texas and Louisiana. Some Hollywood stars are also making large donations; however that does not seem to the case with the Obamas. The former president tweeted his support for first responders and people helping other people and he provided a link to the Red Cross, but there is no indication he made a donation.

Part of the reason may be that according to sources, he and Michelle are looking to buy some multi-million dollar beachfront property in Martha’s Vineyard. This would be in addition to the two homes they already own. An Obama spokesman has denied this.

New Hurricane Develops in the Atlantic http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5666-New-Hurricane-Develops-in-the-Atlantic It is the peak of the hurricane season that runs until the beginning of November and while Harvey still churns though the middle of the country as a tropical depression another powerful system is developing in the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane Irma is a category 2 storm that is expected to strengthen to a category 3 or higher over the next few days.

Its exact path is not known, but it is feared that it will enter the Caribbean and possibly become a threat to the United States Coast. The National weather Service will be closely monitoring this storm, particularly in light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Texans Face Numerous Possible Health Problems http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5665-Texans-Face-Numerous-Possible-Health-Problems While the floodwaters are receding in some parts of Texas and Louisiana it continues to rise in other parts of the state such as on the Brazos River and other waterways head for record high crests. It may be weeks before many people will access their flooded homes, and when they do they will be facing additional problems such as contaminated water, lack of drinking water, the risk of diseases from mosquitos and mold, as well as shortages of critical needs such as medicine.

The recovery is expected to take years, not just weeks or months and will cost billions of dollars that Congress will have to appropriate.

Some Germans Want American Nukes Out Of Germany http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5664-Some-Germans-Want-American-Nukes-Out-Of-Germany German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel supports removing the nuclear weapons that the United States stores in Germany. “Of course I am convinced that we need to finally start talking about demilitarisation again. In this regard, I agreed with Mr. Schulz’s point that we need to get rid of the nuclear weapons that are in our country.” The German Foreign Minister’s remarks echo those of Martin Schulz who is running for Chancellor in the upcoming elections. Last week Schulz said, “As Chancellor of Germany I would commit to having the nuclear weapons which are stored here removed from the country.” The United States is believed to have about 20 nuclear weapons in Germany. The United States has 34,000 troops stationed in Germany on various bases. Schulz is “deeply antagonistic towards the U.S. since the election of President Donald Trump.” In June he called the president an “autocrat.” Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party is leading in the polls and is expected to beat Martin Schulz’sSocial Democrat party.

Corporate Tax Holiday With a Twist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5663-Corporate-Tax-Holiday-With-a-Twist The Trump administration is considering a type of tax holiday for companies that keep their overseas earnings overseas. President Trump on Wednesday said, “By making it less punitive for companies to bring back this money, and by making the process far less bureaucratic and difficult, we can return trillions and trillions of dollars to our economy and spur billions of dollars in new investments in our struggling communities throughout our nation.” However, what the president did not say was that the administration is considering a plan to make the tax holiday mandatory. Under the plan the tax deferral on overseas profits would be removed. All foreign profits would be considered to have been repatriated. However, the forced repatriated profits would be taxed at a preferential “transition” rate and be payable over several years. The government is attempting to move towards a system of territorial taxation. Under the system, U.S. companies would not be taxed by the U.S. government on their overseas profits. The tax plan has not been finalized and may change considerably after discussions with members of Congress.

HSS Slashes Obamacare Advertising http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5662-HSS-Slashes-Obamacare-Advertising The Department of Health and Human Services will sharply scale back funding for Obamacare advertising. The department expects to spend $10 million this year as opposed to the $100 million spent last year. “A health-care system that has caused premiums to double and left nearly half of our counties with only one coverage option is not working. The Trump administration is determined to serve the American people instead of trying to sell them a bad deal,” said a spokesman for HSS. Outside organizations which help people sign up for Obamacare will see a cut in funding. HSS expects to spend $36.8 million on the program. Democrats are using this latest information to accuse the administration of trying to make the Affordable Care Act fail. "The only reason for slashing the advertising budget by 90% is to suppress enrollment in an effort to destabilize the markets,” said Representative Frank Pallone.

Hungary Sends $476 Million Bill to EU http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5661-Hungary-Sends-$476-Million-Bill-to-EU The European Union is furious that Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic refuse to accept Muslim migrants. Hungary has flatly refused to take migrants. Instead it has erected a “razor-wired fence” to keep migrants out of its territory. The fence has successfully “erased illegal immigration into Hungary.” The border is guarded 24 hours a day and zones have been set up to “detain asylum seekers.” Janos Lazar, the prime minister’s chief of staff announced that Hungary’s government is sending the EU a bill for $476 million saying the fence is “protecting all the citizens of Europe from the flood of illegal migrants.“If we talk about European solidarity, then we must also discuss the protection of borders. Solidarity must be applicable there, too,” Lazar said at a press conference. “That burden must also be shared.” The EU is taking legal action against the countries for not complying with EU directives.

Snowflake Meltdown At Ole Miss http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5660-Snowflake-Meltdown-At-Ole-Miss The world nearly came to a standstill for the students at the University of Mississippi “after a discarded banana peel was found hanging in a tree on campus.” A highly insensitive student confessed to discarding “the banana peel by throwing it into the tree when he couldn’t find a garbage can.” Rather than disregarding the banana peel as a piece of garbage, Makala McNeil, president of a black sorority, became “just sort of paranoid for a second” upon seeing the banana peel. “The overall tone was heavy. I mean, we were talking about race in Mississippi and in the Greek community so there’s a lot involved,” McNeil said. As word spread about the banana peel, students became agitated, others left the retreat in tears, and some no longer felt safe nor welcome. Ryan Swanson, the student who threw the banana peel, apologized for his insensitivity and thoughtlessness. “Although unintentional, there is no excuse for the pain that was caused to members of our community. I have much to learn and look forward to doing such and encourage all members of our community to do the same." The University of Mississippi plans an investigation and campus discussion of the incident. It might be cheaper and faster to just add more garbage cans around campus.

Comey Was Planning to Exonerate Clinton Much Earlier Than He Said http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5659-Comey-Was-Planning-to-Exonerate-Clinton-Much-Earlier-Than-He-Said Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress that the meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton in Lynch’s airplane was the deciding factor “to go public with the results of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.”
https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles...

However, Mr. Comey made the decision to exonerate Hillary Clinton many weeks earlier, in “April or May” of 2016, and before FBI agents had concluded their investigation. In a letter to FBI Director Wray, Senator Grassley wrote, “Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership.” This was done even before Mrs. Clinton was questioned on July 2nd. Senator Grassley went on to write, “Conclusion first, fact-gather second——that’s no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”

Day of Prayer for Texas http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5658-Day-of-Prayer-for-Texas Governor Abbott of Texas signed a proclamation on Thursday “declaring this Sunday, September 3, as a day of prayer in Texas.” The proclamation comes just after Hurricane Harvey has moved out of Houston. Governor Abbott signed the document “outside a heavily damaged church” in Rockport, Texas. The governor called on Texans to pray “as one united people for the future of this state, and future of this country; for healing and for hope, for rebuilding, and for the next great generation of Texans.” “It’s important that we remember that the greatest power that exists is the power of God, and the way that God can touch and move all of our lives,” said Abbott. “It was God acting through the lives of so many Texans who came to the rescue of other Texans,” he continued. After the signing of the proclamation, Vice President Pence said, "President Trump sent us here to say we are with you. The American people are with you," Pence said. "We are here today, we will be here tomorrow, and we will be here every day until this city and this state and this region rebuild bigger and better than ever before." Afterwards, Mrs. Karen Pence led the assembled crowd in prayer.

Mattis Signed Orders For Troop Deployment http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5657-Mattis-Signed-Orders-For-Troop-Deployment Defense Secretary James Mattis signed the orders to deploy additional troops to Afghanistan. "Yes, I have signed orders but it is not complete. In other words I have signed some of the [orders for] troops that will go and we are identifying the specific ones.” Mattis did not say how many troops will be involved. But it is believed that up to 4,000 additional soldiers may be sent. Last week President Trump said that leaving Afghanistan would lead to “predictable and unacceptable” outcomes. He said that the military will “fight to win.” "From now on victory will have a clear definition: Attacking our enemies, obliterating ISIS, crushing al Qaeda, preventing the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan, and stopping mass terror attacks before they emerge," said the president. Afghanistan is now America’s longest running war, and the deployment will only deepen American involvement in Afghanistan. Candidate Trump called on the United States to wind down its involvement in Afghanistan. But he changed his mind once he became president and influenced by the generals running the war.

North Korea Preparing to Test Nuclear Weapon http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5656-North-Korea-Preparing-to-Test-Nuclear-Weapon North Korea appears to be preparing an underground nuclear testing facility. American intelligence agencies believe that increased activity could “signal preparations for a sixth underground test blast.” Satellite “images of technicians and vehicle activities” indicate increased activity around North Korea’s test site. The test could happen on September 9 in celebration of the anniversary of North Korea’s founding. North Korea conducted two nuclear tests in 2016. The North Koreans were believed to be preparing to test a nuclear weapon in April, but the Chinese government pressured North Korea to hold back. The Trump administration has made private appeals to the Chinese to intervene with the North Koreans to stop current plans for testing. The United States recently imposed new economic sanctions on “10 companies and six people, including Chinese and Russians, for illicit trade in nuclear and missile goods to North Korea.

Russia Forced To Close Diplomatic Stations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5655-Russia-Forced-To-Close-Diplomatic-Stations The Trump Administration ordered the closure of several Russian diplomatic stations in the United States. The Russian consulate in San Francisco will be forced to close. Russian annexes in Washington D.C. and New York City will also be closed. The Russian government has until September 2 to close the sites. The closures comes in response to Russia ordering 755 American Embassy workers to leave Russia. The United States will not require that the officials operating in the diplomatic stations leave the country. They can be “reassigned to other diplomatic posts.” American officials are not trying to maintain diplomatic parity between the two countries. While each country will now have three consulates, Russia will be able to maintain many of its diplomatic and consular annexes “in an effort to arrest the downward spiral in our relationship,” said State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.

Liberals Refuse to Condemn ANTIFA Violence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5654-Liberals-Refuse-to-Condemn-ANTIFA-Violence In a surprise move a prominent liberal Democrat, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, actually condemned the violence being committed by ANTIFA. She is the only Democrat in Congress to do so, since others remain silent about the group that openly attacks anyone that they disagree with. The mainstream media has also generally failed to condemn the group, with only a few exceptions.

A professor at Dartmouth University has actually written a booklet titled “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” and has called the use of violence by armed thugs against unarmed civilians as “legitimate”. He has been condemned by the university president, but has the support of most of his fellow faculty who as elitists believe that violence against the people they consider as the “unwashed masses” is legitimate.

Condemnation of Kindergarten Transgender Lesson Grows http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5653-Condemnation-of-Kindergarten-Transgender-Lesson-Grows Many parents were infuriated when they learned that a California school district had arranged for a five year old boy to “transition” to being a girl in front of an entire kindergarten class at Rocklin Academy Gateway School in Sacramento. Parents reported their children were confused and traumatized by what they saw.

Now some prominent psychiatrists and pediatricians are coming forward to criticize the whole incident as “social experimentation” that can be very dangerous to the normal gender development of young children. In fact, the experiment has already led to one five year old boy being sent to the principal’s office for “misgendering” the transgender child on the playground.

What makes things worse in the eyes of many is that some main stream media organizations routinely repeat what the SPLC says without questioning it accuracy.

James Kennedy Ministries, that is a conservative Christian Media group has filed a defamation suit against the SPLC for falsely listing it in the categories of hate groups like neo-Nazis and white Supremacy groups. Another group falsely listed as a hate group by the SPLC is the Sons of Liberty, and it is considering joining the lawsuit.

The Iranians are claiming that all three sites are agreeing to block or otherwise censor content that it considers immoral or immodest. Under the strict Sharia Law imposed by the Iranian dictatorship this would mean that most content would be censored.

He also wants middle class tax cuts and major corporate tax cuts so Americans can keep more of the money they make and corporations can spend more money creating jobs.

He directly challenged Congress to get it done, and called for a bi-partisan effort. However, Democrat leaders are already criticizing the plan as only benefiting the rich, when no specific proposal has even been offered yet.

Now, in a move that many are already criticizing as exploitation of the Hurricane Harvey tragedy in Texas, these groups have set up a fund raising site called the Hurricane Harvey Community Relief Fund. The site is allegedly to raise money to help people impacted by the hurricane.

However, if you read the fine print on the site you will see that the money is actually being raised to organize and fund the political agendas of the union and other various organizations. For example, Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the Women’s March, who has publically called for a “jihad” against President Trump, is supporting this phony fund raising effort.

Governor Scott Walker Gets Behind Obamacare Repeal Effort http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5646-Governor-Scott-Walker-Gets-Behind-Obamacare-Repeal-Effort Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is throwing his support behind the latest effort to repeal Obamacare. The new proposal would take healthcare out of the hands of federal bureaucrats and put it into the hands of states in the form of block grants. Senators Graham and Cassidy plan to introduce the legislation when Congress returns from its vacation in early September. Under the proposed legislation, each state would be able to innovate and craft their own solutions to healthcare. Governor Walker is planning to rally his other Republican governors behindthe effort to block grant healthcare to the states. According to Gov. Walker there are many Republican governors “who think sending more responsibilities and resources back to the states is directly what our founders intended in the Constitution.” The support and buy in of governors is thought to be crucial the bill’s passage. Governors can influence and persuade senators and representatives to support the bill. Governor Walker believes passage of the bill would get the support of voters and be a boon “for the GOP in next year’s midterm elections.”

But the House Speaker drew the line at condemning violent leftists. After President Trump said that there were people on “many sides” responsible for violence in Charlottesville, Ryan took to Facebook to say, “There are no sides.” On Tuesday Nancy Pelosi issued a statement condemning Antifa’s violence in Berkeley. “The violent actions of people calling themselves antics in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.” That gave Speaker Ryan the freedom to finally issue his own condemnation of Antifa. His spokesman said, “Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-ing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country.”

Robertson was found guilty of “digging two ponds in Montana, one on federal land and the other on private property, without a permit.” Joseph Robertson is serving an 18-month sentence for violating the Clean Water Act and for destroying federal property. Robertson thought he was digging the ponds on private property. The government accused him of polluting the “waters of the U.S.” “The nearest navigable river, the Jefferson, is 60 miles away.” The EPA and Army Corps of Engineers say that tributaries and wetlands where the ponds were built have a “significant nexus to traditional navigable waters.” Attorneys for Robertson say that the definition of “navigable water” is vague and “leads to violations of individual’s property rights.”

Confederate Flag Review By Supreme Court? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5643-Confederate-Flag-Review-By-Supreme-Court? The Supreme Court may weigh in on the Confederate Flag. Mississippi has incorporated the Confederate battle flag into its state flag. In March the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals found that the state can incorporate the Confederate flag into its state flag. The case was appealed to the Supreme Court. This week the court asked Governor Phil Bryant “to respond to a petition asking the justices to reverse” the March ruling. The attorney petitioning the high court argued that the Confederate symbol on state flags “violated the Constitution’s equal protection clause, given its association with slavery.” The Court’s request does not mean the Court will take the case. But “it shows that they are giving serious consideration to the petition,” said attorney Michael Scott. In 2015 the Supreme Court ruled that because “license plates constitute government speech,” the state could not be coerced into issuing a specialty license plate showing the Confederate flag.

Trump Encouraged To Nationalize Rare Earths Mine http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5642-Trump-Encouraged-To-Nationalize-Rare-Earths-Mine President Trump is being asked to nationalize the only remaining rare earth mine in the United States. America’s only rare earth mine was purchased by “an investor group that allegedly has ties to the Chinese government. The mine was one of the remaining assets of the bankrupt Molycorp Inc. China currently controls 97 percent of global rare-earth mineral production. “By buying up Mountain Pass, the Chinese have locked up the only operating rare earth mining operation outside of China,” said Michael Silver of American Elements Corporation. Rare earths are used in many military applications including antimissile defense systems, lasers, night vision, satellites and military aircraft. The Government Accounting Office said that the Defense Department does not have a plan for dealing with “potential supply disruptions.” American rare earths mining is “burdened by environmental and labor regulation” and cannot compete with China which has little to no regulation. China was able to keep prices below their cost of production and drive the American Molycorp into bankruptcy.

Federal Court Block Texas Sanctuary City Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5640-Federal-Court-Block-Texas-Sanctuary-City-Law A federal judge blocked a law in Texas that banned sanctuary cities. The law as scheduled to go into effect on Friday. The law was regarded as the toughest “anti-sanctuary city law in the country.” Police were permitted to ask about the immigration status of people detained or arrested. Local law enforcement was required to honor detention requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. And police chiefs and sheriffs who did not comply, could be removed from office. Under the federal judge’s injunction, most of the law cannot be enforced while an opposing lawsuit goes through the legal process. Police will still be permitted to ask about a person’s immigration status. State Attorney General Ken Paxton said that the legislation is sound and the he expects the legislation will ultimately be upheld. The law will serve as a “test case for how far states can go in compelling local governments to enforce immigration law.”

Thieving Politicians Tax Americans More Every Year http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5639-Thieving-Politicians-Tax-Americans-More-Every-Year According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016, Americans had more money confiscated from their paychecks by politicians than Americans spent on food and clothing combined. Adding to the injury, “the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent” from 2013 to 2016. The average federal, state, and local tax bills for Americans in 2016 was $10,489. This does not include the additional amount that Americans were forced to fork over to the government run Social Security Ponzi scheme. The average income for Americans before taxes in 2016 was $74,664. That is an increase from 2013 when the average American income was $63,784. Despite the record amount of wealth extracted from Americans, the federal government continuously spends more than it takes in and politicians complain that Americans are not taxed enough. In reality, politicians are the ones with the problem. There is no limit to their appetite for spending other people’s money.

Trial to Begin for Senator Menendez http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5638-Trial-to-Begin-for-Senator-Menendez Senator Robert Melendez will go on trial next week. He’s charged with bribery and corruption. The Department of Justice alleges that Dr. Salomon Melgen “began a pattern of treating Menendez to weekend and weeklong getaways in the Dominican Republic that would continue for the next several years.” Melgen and family members gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the re-election efforts of Menendez. Prosecutors charge that Menendez took official actions in office that benefited the doctor. In a DOJ filing, prosecutors say, “Although Menendez did not pay Melgen back for the lavish gifts in money, he did pay him back using the currency of his Senate office to take official action to benefit the South Florida doctor.” Dr. Melgen was found guilty of defrauding millions from Medicare. The doctor still faces sentencing.

Support Grows For Bernie Sanders’ Bill to Expand Medicare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5637--Support-Grows-For-Bernie-Sanders’-Bill-to-Expand-Medicare California’s freshman liberal senator, Kamala Harris announced that she will co-sponsor Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All bill saying that “it’s just the right thing to do.” Even though there is nothing in the Constitution saying so, the Senator Harris asserted, “[T]his is about understanding health care should be a right, and not a privilege.” Earlier Harris’ position had supported single payer “as a concept.” Even though government involvement in healthcare has been a financial nightmare for Americans and healthcare companies, Harris seemed to double down on expanding the government’s role. “It’s not only about what’s morally and ethically right; it also just makes sense from a fiscal standpoint or a return on investment for taxpayers.” Kamala Harris appears to be planning a run for the presidency in 2020. Her campaign has rented office space in Washington DC and is using the services of President Obama’s, Organizing for Action.

Major Efforts Launched to Help Hurricane Harvey Victims http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5636-Major-Efforts-Launched-to-Help-Hurricane-Harvey-Victims As the disaster of Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate people in Texas and Louisiana, groups and individuals have come in to offer help. The usual charity and relief groups are there like the Salvation Army, the Red Cross, and Samaritan’s Purse, among many others. Individual Americans are also pitching in like neighbors, friends, strangers, and loosely knit groups like the Cajun Navy from Louisiana. These are just people with their own boats.

Celebrities like Kevin Hart, Houston Texans pro football player J.J. Watt, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft are also on board. Watt has already raised over $3 million. Notably absent from the list of groups and individuals working to help victims are Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, the Clinton Foundation, George Soros, and Michael Moore.

New York Times Celebrates Win in Palin Lawsuit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5635-New-York-Times-Celebrates-Win-in-Palin-Lawsuit The New York Times newspaper is celebrating the fact that a judge has dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed by former Alaska governor and Vice Presidential candidate. She sued the Times several months ago after it published an editorial containing an assertion that an ad run by Palin had resulted in the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. This story had been quickly discredited at the time yet the newspaper ran it again as if it had been factual.

It is very difficult for public figures to win defamation suits against the media, yet what probably save the New York Times in this case was the fact that it printed a retraction the day after it published the story for the second time.

Pentagon Mobilizing Additional Assets for Harvey Relief http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5634-Pentagon-Mobilizing-Additional-Assets-for-Harvey-Relief The State of Texas has already activated all 12,000 members of its National Guard to assist in disaster relief following Hurricane Harvey. Now the Pentagon says it is preparing to activate up to 30,000 more guard members from around the country to assist, and may deploy a U.S, Navy amphibious assault ship as well as 24 more helicopters in addition to the 30 already deployed. It is possible that up to 100 helicopters will be deployed if needed.

In addition, the 14 looters already arrested in Houston may find that they face life sentences under a new Texas law providing for enhanced penalties for people who commit such crimes during natural disasters.

Liberal Media Blaming Global Warming and Republicans for Harvey http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5633-Liberal-Media-Blaming-Global-Warming-and-Republicans-for-Harvey It was entirely predictable that eventually the mainstream media would get around to blaming Hurricane Harvey on global warming, or climate change, or whatever they are calling it this week. They are also claiming that Republican opposition to treaties like the Paris Accords contributed to the development of Harvey.

However, the media pundits have a real problem. So far, no reputable scientists appear to have come forward with this theory. Even those who believe in the concept of global warming, and they seem to be getting fewer all the time, are reluctant to blame a single storm on the theory. It is also difficult to understand how Donald Trump, who has been in office for only seven months, or Republicans who have only controlled Congress since 2014 can be blamed for Harvey.

Black Pastors Demand Removal of Statue of real Racist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5632-Black-Pastors-Demand-Removal-of-Statue-of-real-Racist Margaret Sanger is a hero of the liberals and the feminist left because she founded Planned Parenthood. A bust of her is prominently displayed in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery as a hero of justice. Now, a group of black pastors is demanding that it be removed because Margaret Sanger was a true racist.

It is well documented that she considered blacks and other minorities as sub-human and feeble minded. She actively supported the concept of black eugenics and started Planned Parenthood as an organization meant to slow down and eventually eliminate the births of black children. As a result of this she was a hero to the Ku Klux Klan. To this day most of the abortion mills run by her organization are located in minority neighborhoods.

Liberals Go Berserk over FLOTUS’s Attire http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5631-Liberals-Go-Berserk-over-FLOTUS’s-Attire While Americans in Texas were losing their homes, their belongings and in some cases, their lives, people from all over the country were rushing to help. This included the President of the United States Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania who flew to Texas to meet with local leaders and to reassure the people suffering.

So while this was going on, what were some of the liberal media and their crazy followers on twitter focused on; criticizing the president and First lady for their attire. Melania was attacked for wearing high heels as she boarded Air Force One, even though when she arrived is Texas she had changed into sneakers. Trump was criticized for wearing a “white” hat with USA on it. It was pointed out that for some being critical of the Trumps takes priority over everything else including compassion.

Should ANTIFA be Designated as a Domestic Terrorist Organization? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5630-Should-ANTIFA-be-Designated-as-a-Domestic-Terrorist-Organization? Calls are increasing for the violent ANTIFA organization to be designated by the Department of Justice as a domestic terrorist group. This follows the recent incident in Berkeley, California where a peaceful group of pro-Trump demonstrators were physically assaulted by masked ANTIFA members, with weapons and shields. There were many injuries, some serious, as Berkeley police stood by and watched.

This is the latest in a series of similar incidents around the country by a group that claims to be anti-fascist and anti-hate, but uses the classic tactics of Nazis and anarchists to push their political agenda. There is also growing evidence that some of these people are actually gang members paid by left wing groups supported by people like George Soros. Yet, the liberal mainstream media continues to label this group as anti-hate.

California Dem wants to Jail People who “Misuse” Transgender Pronouns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5629-California-Dem-wants-to-Jail-People-who-“Misuse”-Transgender-Pronouns A California Senator from the San Francisco has introduced a bill that would jail individuals who work in elder care facilities who “willfully” misuse transgender pronouns. There is no real definition of what the term willfully means, and no real definition of what transgender politically correct pronouns are and what they are not.

Not only does this create serious first amendment concerns, but it could have implications for the elder care system in the state of California. If workers have to face the possibility of losing their jobs or even going to prison for using a pronoun that might offend someone they may choose to find another line of work. There is also a probability that volunteers who work at these facilities may stop coming.

Trump Reassures Texas Leaders http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5628-Trump-Reassures-Texas-Leaders President Trump and the First Lady visited Texas yesterday making stops in Corpus Christie and Austin, Texas. He went to Corpus Christie because it was near where Hurricane Harvey made landfall late last Thursday night. It did not suffer the devastation that nearby cites received as in the cases of Rockport, Houston, and Galveston. The President avoided those areas so his visit would not disrupt ongoing rescue operations.

Trump reassured the leaders in Texas that they will get all of the federal help they need to recover. He was accompanied on the visit by key members of his cabinet including Brock Long, the head of FEMA, who predicted a long and difficult recovery, Trump is planning a similar visit to Louisiana later this week.

Kenneth L. Storey said that the destruction being visited on the people of Texas was “instant karma” for the way they voted.

The tweet went out on Sunday and to its credit the University administration reacted swiftly by terminating the professor for his brutal comment, and issuing a statement saying that “it stands in solidarity with the people impacted by Hurricane Harvey”.

McConnell Pours Money Into Alabama Senate Race http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5626-McConnell-Pours-Money-Into-Alabama-Senate-Race Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is making good on his promise to help incumbent senators. McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund has spent $2.3 million in the run up to the September 26 runoff election between incumbent Luther Strange and Judge Roy Moore. The majority of the spending has been spent on broadcast television advertising with the remainder going to advertise on cable TV, satellite, and radio. Although the spending has been extensive, all the major polls in the race put Moore ahead of Strange. The Senate Leadership Fund spent $4.2 million on behalf of Strange during the primary. The main effort in the primary was to keep Representative Mo Brooks from coming in second place. The Senate Leadership Fund has spent more money on the Alabama race than it spent in trying to win vulnerable Democratic seats in West Virginia and Missouri. Roy Moore is regarded as a supporter of the Trump agenda while Strange is more willing to support McConnell even if that means not delivering on the president’s priorities.

LA Legalizes Ultra-Compact Handguns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5625-LA-Legalizes-Ultra-Compact-Handguns The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to end the city’s ban on “ultra-compact” handguns. Under the ban, firearms dealers could not sell guns smaller than 6.75 inches in length and 4.5 inches in height. Dealers also could not sell holsters for such firearms. The ban was pushed because the compact guns were “the weapons of choice for criminals.” Gun rights groups said that the ban made it more difficult for “women, handicapped individuals, and other vulnerable citizens to get the guns they could use efficiently for self-defense.” Gun rights attorneys sent a demand letter to the City “pointing out that the ordinance was preempted because it conflicted with the state law regulating what handguns can be sold, and was therefore invalid.” Although the city of Los Angeles sought delaying tactics, gun rights attorneys “pushed the City attorney’s office until the City finally repealed the ordinance.”

Continuing Resolution Gets Support From Freedom Caucus http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5624-Continuing-Resolution-Gets-Support-From-Freedom-Caucus The House Freedom Caucus is willing to pass a continuing resolution to keep the government funded to avoid a government shutdown even if it means no funding for the president’s border wall. “Most of the conservatives that I talked to are willing to … vote for a continuing resolution that just basically would not have wall funding in it — would continue the current stream of money that keeps the government operational while we work through and negotiate on the appropriations bill,” said Meadows. Mark Meadows who chairs the Freedom Caucus cited the need to keep the government running in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Meadows “offered his support for Harvey relief after Congress can gauge the ‘full amount of the damage’ in the Gulf Coast.” Meadows and the senators from Texas voted against funding aid to Hurricane Sandy victims. They cited the pork barrel spending that was attached to the bill as their reasons for voting against it. Meadows said, “As long as we keep the emergency relief really to support the people in need, whether they be in New York or Texas, I think you’ll find plenty of conservative support and certainly my support.”

There is work to be done here within the department and answers that need to be provided,” said a spokesman for the Department of Defense. Defense Secretary Mattie said that he is waiting for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs to get him a plan. “We’ve obviously been discussing this option for some time. When he brings that to me, I’ll determine how many more [troops] we need to send in,” said Mattis. It’s estimated that the military will send 4,000 additional soldiers to Afghanistan. To date, 2,258 soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan. 20,263 have been injured. President Trump backtracked from his campaign rhetoric to pull American troops out of Afghanistan. He gave no timeline on how much longer America would continue the war.

Obamacare Repeal Effort Gaining Supporters http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5622-Obamacare-Repeal-Effort-Gaining-Supporters Rick Santorum’s plan to replace Obamacare with block grants to the states may be getting enough support from senators and representatives to actually pass through Congress. Senator Lindsey Graham said of the bill, “This is truly and fundamentally a different approach than Obamacare. It relies upon the concept of federalism.” He added, “We’re going to block grant the health care to the states.” In previous attempts to repeal Obamacare, Congress retained much of the infrastructure of the failing healthcare plan in place. The legislation merely trimmed around the edges but nothing fundamentally changed. By block granting to the states, each state would be able to create its own healthcare solution. States could create their own employer and individual mandates or not. States could create single-payer plans but no entity would be able to impose that on the other 49 states. States could borrow ideas from each other. Senator Graham thought that the key to getting repeal legislation through Congress is to have the support of governors.

Four teenage boys, Thomas Edwards, Richard Dickason, and Liam and Declan Connor used Declan’s small fishing boat to rescue as many as 50 people and many pets. The boys heard people screaming for help. So “we began to pick people up and take them to a local Krogers, where other evacuees sought refuge. We were the only boat in the neighborhood until 2 o’clock, and we motored back and forth making trips to rescue as many people as we could,” said Edwards. “We rescued families, babies, dogs, rabbits, you name it,” said Edwards. “It was an incredibly surreal experience to take a boat down streets while trying to doge sunken cars and overhanging tree limbs.” “Someone said that in times like these, differences don’t matter because we are all in the same predicament,” said Edwards. “I thought it was incredibly valiant to see how the whole community banded together to save one another.”

Denmark Tip-Toes Into Tax Cutting Arena http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5620-Denmark-Tip-Toes-Into-Tax-Cutting-Arena Denmark’s government wants to make the country a more attractive place to work. But Denmark is one of the world’s most heavily taxed countries. The government is proposing cutting taxes to “make it cheaper to save toward retirement and reduce levies on cars.” The government won’t be rushing to slash taxes and government spending though. Instead it will tip-toe into the tax cutting arena. It is proposing to cut taxes by a mere $3.7 billion, and it will take until 2025 to phase in the proposed measures. The Finance Minister said, “we’re increasing the gains associated with working, we’re making it more attractive to work more and we’re ensuring that it’s more worthwhile to save up toward retirement.” By encouraging more people to work, the government expects more revenue from its value-added tax. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has called for America to be more like Denmark. No word on whether Denmark’s embrace of tax cuts will cause the senator to find a new high tax role model.

Court Pushed To Hear Second Amendment Case http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5619-Court-Pushed-To-Hear-Second-Amendment-Case The state attorneys general for 21 states asked the Supreme Court to decide a case involving Maryland’s assault weapons ban. Maryland has banned semi-automatic rifles and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. If Maryland can get away with banning certain types of firearms, then it steps all over the Second Amendment according to West Virginia’s attorney general. "I hope that the Supreme Court hears this case so there are not undue restrictions on peoples' right to enjoy the Second Amendment. This matters not only for West Virginia, it matters for the entire country. The National Rifle Association said, “The popular rifles and standard magazines banned in Maryland are some of the best tools for self-defense. We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will reverse this egregious decision.” The Supreme Court has not heard a case related to the Second Amendment in over seven years. In June, the Court let stand a case involving California’s concealed-carry law. Justices Thomas and Gorsuch dissented and exhorted the Court to do more to protect citizen’s rights under the Second Amendment.

Chinese Electronic Warfare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5618-Chinese-Electronic-Warfare The collisions between American warships and merchant vessels has military experts wondering if China messed with American navigation systems to create the collisions. China has been a leader in developing electronic warfare capabilities. Its jammers, disruptors, drones, and cyber tools “can cause electronics to malfunction mysteriously, or to operate in ways that can cause them to self-destruct. The Chinese military has written extensively on “the use of electronic warfare.” It has developed “a distributed electronic warfare system that will be used to attack battle groups at sea.” China’s military industry has developed an “anti-Aegis defense system” specifically to combat American warships equipped with the Aegis system. So far the U.S. Navy has blamed mechanical failure and crew error on the collisions. But it is not ruling the possibility that the ship’s electronics were disrupted. China wants to remove American power from Asia. It sees the American Navy as interfering in China’s backyard.

Mattis Appoints Panel to Study President’s Transgender Order http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5617-Mattis-Appoints-Panel-to-Study-President’s-Transgender-Order Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that transgender soldiers would be allowed to continue serving in the military while a Pentagon panel studies the issue. “Once the panel reports its recommendations and following my consultation with the secretary of Homeland Security, I will provide my advice to the president concerning implementation of his policy direction. In the interim, current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place,” said Mattis. In 2016 the Pentagon commissioned a study by the RAND Corporation to study the impact of transgenders in the military. The leftist organization provided the military with the outcome the administration wanted, namely that transgenders would cost the military about $8 million a year and the readiness impact would be negligible. This number was disputed by Representative Vicky Hartzler who believes the policy would cost the military $1.3 billion over 10 years. The president gave wide latitude to his Secretary of Defense to implement the ban.

Dangerous Chemical Release Adds to Problems in Houston http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5616-Dangerous-Chemical-Release-Adds-to-Problems-in-Houston Late yesterday afternoon residents of La Porte, Texas, and two other communities about 20 miles south of Houston were ordered to stay in their homes and shelter in place. This was due to a release of dangerous hydrogen chloride from a chemical plant apparently affected by the flooding in the area. Sheltering in place means shutting off the air-conditioning units and keeping all doors and windows shut.

The chemical can cause serious injury and even death if inhaled. Fortunately, the release was quickly contained and there were no reported injuries before the all clear was given. However, this is another indication of the dangers facing Texas residents for the foreseeable future.

MSNBC Host Tries to use Hurricane Harvey to Attack Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5615-MSNBC-Host-Tries-to-use-Hurricane-Harvey-to-Attack-Trump In what some people are calling the most bizarre left wing media attacks on President Trump, yet MSNBC host, Stephanie Ruhle questioned whether people in Texas would run the risk of being deported if they were here illegally and checked into a storm shelter. She made this assertion despite the fact that both the U.S. Border Patrol and Texas officials have stated that they were just interested in saving lives and no questions would be asked.

Then other left wing commentators went on to blame the hurricane on the fact that Trump’s budget cuts funding for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This is a federal agency that monitors weather and ocean conditions, but it does not have any way to modify them. However, some Trump critics seem to believe that a hurricane can be bribed to change course or reduce its intensity.

Left Wing Media Blames Trump for Political Violence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5614-Left-Wing-Media-Blames-Trump-for-Political-Violence Virtually any American who watches the images on television of violence like over the weekend in Berkeley, California will clearly see that the perpetrators of the violence are far left groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. The victims are not necessarily white supremacists, but police officers, reporters, and anyone who dares to disagree with the leftist political agenda.

Yet, despite this definitive evidence the liberal media continues to try and put the primary reason for the violence on the back of the President. For example, a recent piece by the liberal magazine “The Hill” says that President Trump’s rhetoric, both before and after the election is the cause of all political violence, even the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise, and others by a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Cowboys Quarterback Takes Patriotic Stand http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5613-Cowboys-Quarterback-Takes-Patriotic-Stand At a time when increasing numbers of black professional athletes are showing their disdain for the country that gives the freedom to make millions of dollars, one prominent athlete is standing up against the tide. Dak Prescott, the popular young quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys football team, has said he is “not at all” tempted to join the protest.

Instead of kneeling during the national anthem, to protest whatever is the liberal politically correct thing to protest that week, Prescott proudly stands at attention with his hand over his heart because he says we can’t take freedom for granted and he wants to honor the flag and the people who have fought for it. So far, no member of the Cowboys has joined in any protest.

Venezuela Planning to Ban Social Media Content http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5612-Venezuela-Planning-to-Ban-Social-Media-Content- In what some might see is a page from the playbook of the American left wing the government of Venezuela is planning to regulate the internet by banning social media posts that promote “hate or bigotry”. The translation of that appears to mean that the targets of the new law being considered by the unlawful Constituent Assembly include anyone who is critical of Nicholas Maduro and the socialist government of the country.

This is a hate speech definition similar to the language used by liberals in the United States to justify the censoring of legitimate conservative websites and posts that are critical of the Democrats or the liberal media.

Planned Parenthood Hammered by Federal Appeals Court http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5611-Planned-Parenthood-Hammered-by-Federal-Appeals-Court In the past several years a number of state governments have attempted to defund Planned Parenthood after the disturbing videos of the abortion group making arrangements to sell the body parts of aborted babies. Planned Parenthood has sued the states since it makes most of its money off of abortions and many of them are paid for by taxpayer funded state Medicaid programs.

Until now the federal courts have been striking down these laws, usually for spurious reasons. Now the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld such a ban adopted by the Arkansas Legislature. This decision comes after Congress passed legislation in April that set aside an Obama executive order to protect the abortion mill from being defunded.

North Korean Missile Flies over Japan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5610-North-Korean-Missile-Flies-over-Japan The Japanese news media are reporting that a missile fired by the North Koreans flew over northern Japan. This was apparently an intermediate range ballistic missile, but appears to have been larger than the three fired by the North Korean military over the weekend.

The North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, continues to play what appears to be a dangerous game of chicken with the United States and its allies in the region. However, nothing he has done has caused the U.S. military to cancel or even scale back the joint military maneuvers going on with the South Korean military. This is undoubtedly frustrating for the North Korean dictator, and could result in even more erratic and dangerous behavior.

Harvey Moving Into Louisiana http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5609-Harvey-Moving-Into-Louisiana While tropical storm Harvey is still dumping unprecedented amounts of rain on southeast Texas, including Houston and Galveston, the leading edge of the storm is moving further into the Louisiana. The city of Lake Charles, Louisiana has already experienced heavy rain, and now New Orleans and the state capital of Baton Rouge are feeling its effects.

The eye of the storm is actually moving back into the Gulf of Mexico where it will gather up even more moisture to dump on the states when it moves back onshore. The entire Texas National Guard of 12,000 has now been mobilized, and volunteers with boats have poured in from other states to assist in the massive rescue efforts. Trump has also signed a disaster declaration for Louisiana.

ANTIFA Stages Anti-Hate Rally by Beating People Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5608-ANTIFA-Stages-Anti-Hate-Rally-by-Beating-People-Up ANTIFA responded to a free speech rally by a small group of conservatives in Berkeley with a so-called no-hate demonstration. The conservative demonstrators were peaceful and were not espousing racism. On the other hand, ANTIFA members showed up wearing masks and carrying various weapons and shields. Then they proceeded to attack the unarmed demonstrators and even attacked reporters.

Unfortunately, the police spent most of their time just watching instead of protecting the people being attacked by the fascist thugs. As a result a number of people were injured, some very seriously. Police only made a hand full of arrests.

Leftists Want to Ban Conservative Speakers in Berkeley http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5607-Leftists-Want-to-Ban-Conservative-Speakers-in-Berkeley Berkeley, California’s Mayor Jesse Arreguin, wants UC Berkeley to cancel events for Free Speech Week in September. During Free Speech Week, a campus conservative group, Berkeley Patriot will be hosting several speakers opposed to the Left. Mayor Arreguin said, “I don’t want Berkeley being used as a punching bag. I am concerned about these groups using large protests to create mayhem. It’s something we have seen in Oakland and in Berkeley.” Arreguin wants the university to force Berkeley to rescind invitations to Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, and Steve Bannon. He said, “I obviously believe in freedom of speech, but there is a line between freedom of speech and then posing a risk to public safety. University spokesman Dan Mogulof said that the university does not have the legal right to “interfere with or cancel invitations based on the perspectives and beliefs of the speakers.” He pledged to make it a priority to keep the community safe as well as the snowflakes “who may feel threatened or harmed by what some of these speakers may espouse.”

Man Made Up Story About Being Attacked http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5606-Man-Made-Up-Story-About-Being-Attacked The Navy seaman who said he was stabbed because of his neo-Nazi like haircut, made it all up. Joshua Witt was charged with making a false report. Initially he’d written “All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me. I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car.” Witt’s Facebook post describing the incident went viral. But police investigating the alleged incident, found no video surveillance that showed the attack or assailants in the area. Video from a sporting goods store near the alleged crime scene showed Witt buying a knife. When confronted, Witt admitted that he’d “accidentally cut himself.” Witt is facing a possible one year in jail and a $2,650 fine.

Mexico Offers Aid To Texas http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5605-Mexico-Offers-Aid-To-Texas Mexico offered to help Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The head of Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry tweeted, “I just spoke to Gov. @GregAbbott_TX. We will provide all the help we can. Our full solidarity with the people of Texas.” In 2005, the Mexican government sent emergency supplies to Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. While the United States and Mexico are at odds over the border wall and NAFTA, the offer appears to be a conciliatory gesture by the Mexican government. On Saturday, President Trump harshly criticized the NAFTA renegotiation calling both Canada and Mexico “being very difficult.” If President Trump interjected himself and accepted Mexico’s offer of help, he could claim the value of the aid as part of Mexico’s contribution to the border wall.

Letter Calls For Mitch McConnell’s Removal http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5604-Letter-Calls-For-Mitch-McConnell’s-Removal Senate Conservatives Action, a political action committee, mailed a fundraising letter calling for Republicans to replace Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The letter was signed by former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccineli. The letter goes into detail how McConnell is doing his best to undermine the president’s agenda on the border wall, healthcare, foreign aid, and term limits. Cuccineli wrote, “Mitch McConnell is now blaming the president for setting ‘excessive expectations’ when he was the one who set these expectations with years of empty promises!!!” The letter calls McConnell “a creature of the swamp.” And the letter points out that no matter how moderate, liberal, or flip-flopping, McConnell is pledging to help re-elect every Senate Republican. “Mitch McConnell doesn’t want President Trump to drain the swamp. He wants to keep rewarding his cronies with liberal policies and continue business as usual,” said Cuccineli.

Democrat Party officials were worried that Sanders’ supporters “might launch primary challenges against Democrats who do not back a single-payer plan.” Sanders did say, “You’re seeing more and more movement toward ‘Medicare for All.’ When the people are saying we need healthcare for everyone, as more and more Americans come on board, it will become politically possible.” The senator added that over time, Democrats will have to support single-payer if they want to win. He thought the Republican’s effort to overturn Obamacare changed the landscape. “People are saying ‘the ACA did some good things, and the Republicans wanted to throw 22 million people off of it. That’s an absurd idea to most people.”

The president made it clear that if there is a government shut down over border wall funding, Texas would still get everything it needs to recover. It’s expected that 500,000 people may be seeking disaster relief because of the flooding. The president praised Americans for working together to aid Texans. “Tragic times bring out the best in Americans character, strength, charity, and resilience. We see neighbors helping neighbors, friends helping friends and strangers helping strangers. You see that all over. You see it on television, such incredible work and love and teamwork. We are one American family. We hurt together. We struggle together.” The president plans to visit parts of Texas on Tuesday.

The legislative calendar will be full of difficult legislation that will need coordination with the White House. Reince Priebus “had spent years cultivating relationships on the Hill as chairman of the Republican National Committee” as well as reaching out to conservatives. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is respected but he does not have the relationships with members of Congress that is needed to work through the legislative process. The president is seen as increasingly relying on Democrats, including his daughter and son-in-law and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn. Conservatives want the president to appoint a true conservative who has the president’s ear and a relationship with conservative lawmakers.

But negotiations stalled. So Donald Trump’s attorney and vice president of the Trump organization reached out to Vladimir Putin’s personal spokesman in January 2016 to ask for help. In early 2016, Michael Cohen asked that Putin’s spokesman contact him so that meetings could be arranged with “appropriate individuals.” No response was received, and the development deal “fell through two weeks later.” Cohen told congressional investigators that the deal was “nothing more than a routine business proposal.” Cohen said, “It should come as no surprise that, over four decades, the Trump Organization has received and reviewed countless real estate development opportunities, both domestic and international. The Trump Moscow proposal was simply one of many development opportunities that the Trump Organization considered and ultimately rejected.” President Trump has repeatedly denied that he had business ties to Russia.

Leftists Blame Hurricane on Oil Companies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5599-Leftists-Blame-Hurricane-on-Oil-Companies Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks made it clear that he believes that the oil industry is the reason for Hurricane Harvey. On Monday he tweeted out, “Horrified at human toll of #HurricaneHarvey. Not sad about billions of damage to oil industry. Chickens coming home to roost. #ClimateChange. A few minutes later he tweeted, “US taxpayers should help people of Houston in light of this tragedy but not one dime to oil companies who helped cause it in first place.” The oil industry pays nearly $100 million a day in income taxes. The industry’s tax expense averages 48 percent in contrast to other S&P companies which have a tax burden averaging 28 percent. It’s tax revenues from the oil industry that will help pay for the cleanup of Houston and the Gulf area.

It flew over Japan and landed in the water after breaking up into three pieces. North Korea sees the military exercises that the United States is conducting with its allies in the region as a threat. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, “North Korea’s reckless action is an unprecedented, serious and grave threat to our nation.” The prime minister is calling for a UN meeting to strengthen sanctions against North Korea. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “We’re going to continue our peaceful pressure campaign . . . working with allies and working with China as well to see if we can bring the regime in Pyongyang to the negotiating table . . . .” The latest missile firing comes just weeks after heated verbal exchanges between North Korea and President Trump.

Trump Preparing to Undo Obama Limits on Police http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5597-Trump-Preparing-to-Undo-Obama-Limits-on-Police From the beginning of his administration Barack Obama kept up a verbal assault on local police departments for alleged racism. He backed up his constant criticism by putting limits of the availability of critical military equipment to police departments. He justified this by citing situations such as the shooting that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri when a white police officer shot a black man who it turned out had just committed a crime and then assaulted the police office.

When riots occurred in Ferguson Obama said he was disturbed by the police deploying with equipment obtained from the U.S. Military. He used an executive order to limit the practice, and that is now going to be reversed by President Trump who believes in law and order and supporting police.

Interestingly, the majority of the illegals picked up in this incident were Chinese instead of Mexicans or individuals from Central America. Many people believe this reinforces the need for the comprehensive approach to border security being pushed by the Trump administration that includes a border wall.

Although he was not in a position to order the evacuation, Republican Governor Greg Abbott strongly encouraged it, but was contradicted by Turner.

Now, multiple assets are being deployed to save people in areas that had been predictably vulnerable to flooding as a result of the heavy rainfall that was caused by the storm. Turner said it was more risky to put several million people on the roads than to tell everyone to stay in their homes where many are now trapped.

Will Marshall, the founder of the so-called neoliberal movement during the era of Bill Clinton and Al Gore has now stepped into the fray and formed a group called New Democracy.

It is designed to take the party back to what he considers its liberal roots that while progressive are not as blatantly socialist as the message coming from the Sanders/Warren wing of the party. However, he is apparently swimming upstream, at least for the time being, because no real moderate leader of the party appears on the horizon.

This is apparently something else that U.S. intelligence agents were not aware that Kim Jong Un’s army was capable of. This pushes the United States closer to having to take some kind of definitive action to stop the North Koreans from actually being capable of putting a nuclear warhead on a missile that can reach U.S. territory including the continental U.S.

The Chinese don’t appear to be doing anything of significance to pressure Kim Jong Un and the Russians have made their own threatening gestures against the United States and its allies in the region by flying nuclear bombers near the Korean peninsula.

Then the insanity progressed to ESPN removing an Asian/American announcer from calling a football game in Virginia because his name is Robert Lee.

Now, a leader of the Black Student Assembly has called for USC to get rid of its mascot because it is a white horse that happens to be named Traveler that was the same name as Robert E. Lee’s horse. Of course, the horse is ridden onto the field by a Trojan warrior.

It is so proud that on August 3, 2017 it arrested an illegal alien named Nery Israel Estrada-Margos for beating up his girlfriend. When his name was entered into the system he was immediately recognized by ICE as a violent illegal alien they had been looking for so they notified the Santa Rosa police department to detain him until ICE could pick him up.

Instead, the police notified ICE agents that they were going to release him if he was not picked up within 16 minutes of the notification. For the Santa Rosa officials this was some kind of sick joke since they knew the nearest ICE office was 60 miles way. Now, no one is laughing because two weeks after his release Estrada-Margos murdered his girlfriend.

Massive Emergency Response to Hurricane Harvey http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5590-Massive-Emergency-Response-to-Hurricane-Harvey After the massive disaster from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 in New Orleans and on the Mississippi Gulf Coast there was heavy criticism of the local, state, and federal governments. Officials were accused of being ill prepared for the storm and its aftermath, and having a tepid response to a storm that killed over 1,000 people, and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses.

Thus far, the response to what has occurred, and is still ongoing in Texas appears to be much better. The State of Texas has deployed over 3,000 Texas National Guard troops as well as numerous vehicles and aircraft along with state police to assist local first responders in search and rescue operations. Major assets have also been deployed by the U.S. government including FEMA teams and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Will 401Ks Be Taxed? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5588-Will-401Ks-Be-Taxed? The Trump Administration says that it wants tax cuts. But it appears it is settling for tax shifting. Administration officials feel compelled to find ways to pay for “cutting both the individual and corporate tax rates.” The easiest way to pay for tax cuts is to slash government spending. But politicians hate spending cuts. Some ideas being discussed would be capping the mortgage interest deduction, ending the deduction of state and local taxes, ending the ability of businesses to deduct interest, and phasing out immediate deductibility of new equipment for small businesses. “One idea quietly being discussed would be taxing the money that workers place into their 401(k) savings plans up front.” Officials speculate that billions of dollars could be raised. When you have a government approved retirement plan, you are in partnership with the government. Politicians set the rules and can change the rules. What may not be taxable today, may be taxable tomorrow if politicians need the money.

Push to Restart Oil Exploration http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5587-Push-to-Restart-Oil-Exploration Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, signed an order that will assist restarting oil exploration and production in Alaska. Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve is estimated to contain 336 million to 1.7 billion barrels of oil. The Institute for Energy Research applauded Secretary Zinke’s actions saying that the Obama administration erected so “many hoops and barriers getting those resources out of the ground” that it “became cost-prohibtitive.” Alaska’s “1959 Statehood Act recognized natural resource development as critical to the state.” The land “was set up with the sole intention of oil and gas production, however years of politics over policy put roughly half” of Alaskas petroleum reserves off limits. The Trans-Alaskan Pipeline will also get a new lease on life. In its charter, if the pipeline was “no longer cost-effective or profitable” it was required to shut down. The ability to find and extract new sources of oil will mean Alaska will be able to keep putting oil into the pipeline and keep it operating.

Instead of relying on the false narrative of safe havens, the U.S. needs to work with Pakistan to eradicate terrorism.” But Pakistan has been accused of “providing sanctuary to terrorist groups operating in Afghanistan for years by the Pentagon. Pakistan has never replied so forcefully. So is there more going on than meets the eye? In his speech, President Trump also asked that India help bring peace and stability to Afghanistan. It is likely that the encouragement for more help from India alarmed Pakistan. India and Pakistan have argued over over Kashmir for decades. Even fighting three wars over the territory. The thought of India expanding its influence into another border country with Pakistan may be motivating the Pakistani government to promote peace talks between the the Afghan government and the Taliban “in whatever manner it can.”

President Obama said that the military equipment gave the impression that police were an “occupying force.” The executive order banned “armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition” as well as “bayonets and grenade launchers” from being given or sold to police departments. The Fraternal Order of Police has been pressing the Trump administration to reverse the executive order, “arguing that access to such equipment was needed, especially in cash-strapped communities, to better respond to local unrest.” Congress created the surplus equipment program 30 years ago. Since it was enacted, $5 billion in surplus gear has been “transferred to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.”

TSA Drags Its Feet When Travelers File Claims http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5583-TSA-Drags-Its-Feet-When-Travelers-File-Claims Traveling Americans have little recourse when dealing with the TSA. In a survey of claims filed against the TSA for “lost, damaged or stolen items,” travelers “face a tough time getting reimbursed.” The survey found that claims resolved in 2016 and early 2017 for “lost or damaged items” were “more likely to be denied than approved.” 68 percent of claims in 2016 were denied and “less than 32 percent were fully approved.” The average payout was $135. Of the 832 jewelry claims, a mere 9 percent were paid in full. The most likely claims to be approved were related to “travel accessories, home decor and personal electronics.” While they were the most likely claims to be approved, only 50 percent of requests were approved. Travelers must prove their loss and TSA negligence. They must provide supporting evidence of their loss including receipts, appraisals, and flight information. If a claim is denied, the only recourse is to file suit in U.S. District Court.

Mexico Besieged by President Trump’s Twitter Account http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5582-Mexico-Besieged-by-President-Trump’s-Twitter-Account Mexico’s government said it will not negotiate NAFTA “through social media or any other news platform” according to the Mexican foreign ministry. In a series of tweets on Sunday, President Trump called Mexico “one of the highest crime nations in the world.” He said that both Mexico and Canada were “both being very difficult.” Going so far as to speculate he might have to “terminate” the discussions. The Mexican foreign ministry said that it would not pay for President Trump’s border wall saying the matter was “a principle of national sovereignty and dignity.” The foreign ministry pointed out that the violence in Mexico would “only end if its root causes are addressed: high demand for drugs in the United States and supply from Mexico (and other countries).” In the face of Hurricane Harvey, Mexico’s foreign ministry offered help and support to Washington “in order to deal with the impact of this natural disaster —as good neighbors should always to in trying times.”

Higher Gasoline Prices Coming http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5581-Higher-Gasoline-Prices-Coming Hurricane Harvey has taken a quarter of all Gulf Coast oil and natural gas production offline. That means 430,000 barrels of oil is not coming into the market. The shutdown is also affecting the region’s refining capacity. The Gulf Coast is produces “about one-third of the nation’s total oil and gas production capacity.” The industry has not seen a shut down of this size in many years. Gas prices may jump five to fifteen cents over the coming days. If there is damage to refineries, Americans will see even steeper price increases. At its peak, Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm. On Saturday it was downgraded to a tropical storm. President Trump is expected to visit storm damaged areas of Texas on Tuesday.

Antifa’s Destructive Chaos in Berkeley http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5580-Antifa’s-Destructive-Chaos-in-Berkeley On Sunday, anti-facists showed up in Berkley, California to demonstrate against a “March Against Marxism” that never materialized. Organizers of the anti-Marxist march say they were threatened. Police were given an order to stand down, and predictably Antifa’s demonstration descended into chaos. While the anti-Marxism rally did not happen, several of those people planning to participate did show up to counter protest. Antifa members surrounded the anti-Marxists and “shouted at them and pushed them.” They had to be led away to safety by the police. Some Antifa members “were caught on camera driving a man to the ground, punching and kicking him.” Antifa surrounded a journalist and chanted, “Take his camera! Take his phone!” Lizzie Johnson, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle tweeted, “Massive militant anarchist showing in Berkeley today. The group is dangerous and destructive. #Berkeley” 14 people were arrested in the demonstration.

Creative Ways to By Pass Trump’s Controllers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5579-Creative-Ways-to-By-Pass-Trump’s-Controllers President Trump brought on General John Kelly to serve as Chief of Staff. Kelly has brought control to the information flow that the president receives. All information must go through him and one other aide, White House staff secretary Rob Porter. President Trump is prevented from seeing “external policy documents, internal policy memos, agency reports and even news articles that haven’t been vetted.” Creative minds have been working on how to circumvent the controls. The president is known to read his Twitter feed. He’s made it clear that he will never stop tweeting. So people can tweet articles directly to the president. Second, Donald Trump Jr. is maybe the most conservative of the president’s children. Tweeting articles to him may get the eye of the president. Third, Melania Trump can access her husband anytime she wishes. Getting information to her will bypass the Generals who control the president. Fourth, it is known that Rand Paul speaks to the president. Senator Paul can be pressed to get information, news, and messages through the president’s vetting process.

Cuba Uses Sonic Device To Kill Prisoners http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5578-Cuba-Uses-Sonic-Device-To-Kill-Prisoners The State Department said that 16 American diplomats in Cuba suffered a variety of symptoms at the embassy including headaches, vomiting, hearing loss, and brain damage. It is believed that a type of sonic device was used to create the physical problems in the diplomats. A former Cuban political prisoner said that he witnessed “Cuban state police kill a man with sonic torture.” Luís Zúñiga spent 19 years in a Cuban political prison. According to his testimony large speakers were placed “near the cells and broadcast a sound that was like short-wave radio when it was not set on any particular station and would emit shrill sounds.” “The torture would go on all day and night and … ended when a prisoner, Rafael Del Pino Siero, died. Since we were in individual cells, nobody could know if he hung himself or he was hanged, but the truth is he died under torture.” According to a spokesman for the State Department, the “incidents are no longer occurring” but “could not offer proof of an end to these attacks.” Americans investigators have not been able to identify the location of the sonic device or the type of equipment that was used.

Enforcing Thought Control http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5577-Enforcing-Thought-Control A first grade female student at California government school was summoned to the principal’s office for calling “her biologically male classmate by his given name.” The male first grader apparently identifies as a girl. The female student called her classmate by the name he went by last year. The crime was so serious that it warranted an hour long investigation to determine “whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name.” The female student was so upset by the ordeal that her mother logged a protest with the school. She was “told that whenever there is a pronoun mishap with this biological boy who now claims to be a girl ——the school must investigate.” Earlier in the week a teacher read a book about transgenderism to students. It so confused one little girl that she went home crying and upset that she might turn into a boy.

Order In The White House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5576-Order-In-The-White-House White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is sharpening his control of what information gets to the president as well as who gets to see the president. In the first six months of the administration, access to the president was a free-for-all. Staffers would drop all kinds of material on the president’s desk. Anyone could walk in and talk to the president. That is now out the window. Kelly insists that all information go through him and one other aide, Rob Porter. Meetings now must have a list of attendees so that only those on the list can show up. Only the president’s family members can access the president without an appointment and that too is limited to family business. If Ivanka Trump wants to discuss a government policy, she must go through Kelly. Although the president ran as a Republican, he spent most of his life as a Democrat. He has staffed the White House with Democrats and Generals. Republicans have been run out of the place.

Republican Sellout Plan Being Floated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5575-Republican-Sellout-Plan-Being-Floated Republicans in the House and Senate think they may have figured out how to raise the debt ceiling limit with the support of Democrats. A plan being floated around Congress would raise the debt ceiling and fully fund Obamacare subsidies through 2018. Additionally, instead of passing a budget, Congress would pass a short-term, continuing resolution that would fund the government through mid-December, fund Planned Parenthood, and provide no money for the president’s border wall. The White House has argued for a clean debt ceiling increase. However, more conservative members of the House insist that in exchange for their support there have to be spending reforms. President Trump has threatened a government shutdown if Congress does not pass funds for his planned border wall. If the debt ceiling does not get passed by October 1st, the government will have difficulty finding the money to pay its bills. Congress would be wise to end the debt ceiling circus. Not a single senator or member of the House is serious about the government’s dismal finances.

Clueless Gary Cohn http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5574--Clueless-Gary-Cohn In the aftermath of the Charlottesville protests, presidential economic advisor Gary Cohn said that President Trump needs to do a better job when it comes to condemning white supremacists. “I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities,” said Cohn. Left there, it would be a great statement. However, Cohn went on to say that Antifa protestors were “standing up for equality and freedom.” “Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK,” he said. But Antifa is an extremist leftist group that wants nothing to do with defending freedom. According to Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz, “Antifa is a radical anti-American, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard, hard left censorial organization that tries to stop speakers on campuses from speaking. They use violence. And just because they’re opposed to fascism and to some of these monuments shouldn’t make them heroes of the liberals.” Gary Cohn has little more than a superfluous understanding of the forces agitating to pull America apart.

Governor Ends State Funding of Abortion Clinics http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5573-Governor-Ends-State-Funding-of-Abortion-Clinics The governor of South Carolina ended all state and local funding for the state’s three abortion clinics. He also asked that the federal government exclude the clinics from its Medicaid provider network. Governor McMaster said, “There are a variety of agencies, clinics, and medical entities in south Carolina that receive taxpayer funding to offer important women's health and family planning services without performing abortions.” "Taxpayer dollars must not directly or indirectly subsidize abortion providers like Planned Parenthood," he said. Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley said this fight “is not over.” “And we’ll leave no stone unturned to protect our patient’ access to health care.” State law does not allow abortions for any reason after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Venezuelan Government Sanctioned http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5572-Venezuelan-Government-Sanctioned President Trump signed an executive order on Friday that imposed financial sanctions on the Venezuelan government. The sanctions are designed to pressure President Nicolas Maduro by denying him sources of financing. Maduro will not be able to use the U.S. financial system to place Venezuelan debt. In a statement issued by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, he said, "Maduro's economic mismanagement and rampant plundering of his nation's assets have taken Venezuela ever closer to default. His officials are now resorting to opaque financing schemes and liquidating the country's assets at fire sale prices." Mnuchin said that the Trump administration is interested in restoring democracy to Venezuela, but not through regime change. Maduro has effectively shut down the democratically elected National Assembly in favor of his Constituent Assembly that rubber stamps everything he wants to do. Venezuela’s economy has been collapsing for months. People are starving because of severe food shortages. Protestors have been violently repressed by government soldiers.

The Republican nominee, Beth Grossman, said "What really disturbs me is I feel like he's an outside individual who knows nothing about Philadelphia and its specific public safety issues or whatever public safety crisis it's facing comes in with his agenda and backs a far-left candidate who has never prosecuted a criminal case in his 30 year career as a criminal defense attorney.” Grossman said that her opponent, Larry Krasner, does not like law enforcement and has “sued the Philadelphia police department more than 75 times. Grossman does not want her opponent to turn Philadelphia into “a Baltimore” or into “a Chicago.”

Arpaio Pardoned http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5570-Arpaio-Pardoned The president granted Sheriff Joe Arpaio a pardon early Friday evening. The eight-five year old sheriff was found guilty of “criminal contempt” in July for ignoring “a court order in a racial profiling case.” Indignation by leftists over the pardon began hitting social media. Many people complained that the White House intervened too early in the process, pointing out that the sheriff had not even been sentenced. ACLU Deputy Legal Director said that the president’s “pardon of Arpaio is a presidential endorsement of racism.” Regardless the criticism, the president has the power to pardon when and how he sees fit. Early in the presidential campaign, Arpaio offered his endorsement and support of Donald Trump. Arpaio’s long years of public service began when he joined the military at age 18 after the Korean War broke out. Subsequently, Arpaio served as a police officer in Washington D.C. and Las Vegas. He served as a Special Agent in the DEA and eventually lead the DEA’s branch in Arizona. The press release stated “after more than fifty years of admirable service to our nation, he is a worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”

In his letter of resignation, he gave a frank appraisal of the current state of the administration’s policies. “Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will ‘Make America Great Again,’ have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months. This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week…” “The fact that those who drafted and approved the speech removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost…” While in the White House, Gorka was attacked by the media and Democratic Party. His wife, mother, and son experienced personal attacks as well. After Steve Bannon left the White House, anti-Bannon factions created roadblocks to undermine Gorka so that he was unable to accomplish anything.

The judge has refused to postpone the trial until the end of the Congressional session so the senator can cast votes in the Senate. Menendez will have to choose whether to attend his own trial or skip it to vote in the senate. This could prove to be beneficial to the Republicans.

However, if Menendez is convicted, and it appears he will be, he will not automatically lose his senate seat. He would have to be removed by a vote of 67 members and that won’t happen since if he were to lose his seat before January New Jersey Governor Chris Christie could appoint a Republican to replace him. The Democrats will not allow that to happen.

Canada to Give Welfare Checks to Refugees http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5567-Canada-to-Give-Welfare-Checks-to-Refugees In line with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s open arms policy towards refugees illegally entering his country the province of Quebec has decided to set up a program to provide welfare checks to all refugees beginning on August 30. As many as 4,000 people are expected to start receiving the monthly checks of $623 per individual.

The opposition to the Canadian Labor Party is strongly opposed both to the open immigration policy and the welfare checks. This is particularly true in Quebec where the situation appears to rapidly be getting out of control. Nearly 7,000 of these refugees have arrived in Quebec in the last two months.

The storm is also projected to bring in a large storm surge, and heavy rains that will be made worse by the probability that the hurricane will stall after making landfall, and in some places produce rain fall of up to 30 inches.

Shrinking the Government Through Attrition http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5561-Shrinking-the-Government-Through-Attrition The federal government began growing with Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal programs and it has just kept growing. Excluding World War II, federal spending peaked at 24.4 percent of GDP in 2009. Since 1960 employees for state government has tripled. But as baby boomers begin to retire, the government workforce is beginning to shrink. In 2011, the Social Security Administration began to see 4,000 retirements a year. As the swamp naturally drains, President Trump has the opportunity to diminish the size of the federal bureaucracy.The president can order that the responsibilities of retiring employees be reassigned to those who remain. He can also direct that vacancies not be filled. President Trump issued a hiring freeze in January. He signed an executive order in March directing agencies to look for redundancies and cut them out. The federal government will likely find billions of dollars it can use if it shrinks the bureaucracy by not replacing retiring workers.

A California politician thinks she has the answer. San Francisco supervisor Jane Kim wants to tax robots because they steal jobs. The tax money would set aside to fund such things as “job retraining, free community college,” or a basic universal income. No legislation has been drafted, but Kim wants a dialogue with “business owners, tech experts, as well as government and union leaders.” South Korea became the first country to “limit tax incentives for investments in automated machines.” The European Union is also looking into the idea.

New Reason For Hillary’s Loss http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5559-New-Reason-For-Hillary’s-Loss The reasons for Hillary Clinton’s loss keep changing. The latest reason given is that candidate Trump opposed the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal but Hillary Clinton waffled. An advisor to Clinton, Philippe Reines, was asked if TPP was a factor in Mrs. Clinton’s loss. Reines responded, “Absolutely yes.” Trump made the issue front and center in his campaign saying the TPP was a “disaster” and even called the deal “insanity” at one point. Crony trade deals that benefit big companies have caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs. Trump won the votes of these displaced workers by promising to pull America out of the TPP and promising to work to bring back jobs to America. Democrats rejected white working class Americans a long time ago in favor of creating a party around race, ethnicity, and other groups. Mrs. Clinton was unable to speak sincerely to working voters and offer them hope for a future.

The Judge has proven he’s not afraid of a fight for what is right, and he’s ready to take on DC’s swamp monsters and help make America great again. We need more bold leaders like Judge Moore who will fight for all of us in the US Senate.” Two polls show that Moore has a substantial lead over incumbent Senator Luther Strange. Moore is over 50 percent and Strange is hovering around 32 percent. Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund created a push poll that showed Moore leading Strange 45 percent to 41 percent. Push polls are used to sway voters using loaded questions. Judge Moore has endorsed President Trump’s call for Mitch McConnell to end the 60-vote filibuster rule. He explained that the filibuster is not in the Constitution. It’s just a Senate rule that should be discarded. In a letter to Senator McConnell, Luther Strange sided with Democrats to retain the filibuster rule.

Ryan said, “We can’t just be the party of redistribution of wealth. We’ve got to be the party of creation of wealth.” It was not immediately clear if average Americans would be the beneficiaries of the creation of wealth or if the created wealth would be limited to Democratic politicians.

Another Insurer Drops Out of Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5556-Another-Insurer-Drops-Out-of-Obamacare CareConnect is the latest insurer to withdraw from the Obamacare insurance program. The insurance company cited poor profitability, political uncertainty, as well as a substantial bill from the federal government. 13,000 people currently get their insurance through CareConnect’s Obamacare exchange. The New York insurance regulatory agency will review CareConnect’s plan to withdraw. Under Obamacare’s risk adjustment program, insurance companies with healthier customers have to give money to insurance companies with sicker customers. CareConnect would have been profitable had it not been required to pay $112 million to have its profits redistributed. The company expected that it would face a substantial redistribution bill of $100 million in 2018.

Washington D.C. Fights July Gun Ruling http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5555-Washington-D.C.-Fights-July-Gun-Ruling The city of Washington D.C. will ask for the entire federal appeals court to review a three judge panel’s decision to declare its gun-carry law unconstitutional. Even if applicants for a concealed carry permit meets all the requirement for a permit, the city’s law requires that the applicant have a “good reason.” The three judge panel held that “the individual right to carry common firearms beyond the home for self-defense . . . falls within the core of the Second Amendment’s protections.” Plaintiff, Alan Gottlieb, said the city of Washington D.C. has “no intention of complying with any court decision that supports the right to keep and bear arms.” The city is expected get a more favorable hearing by the full appeals court.

Company Ordered to Turn Over Information on Protest Website http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5554-Company-Ordered-to-Turn-Over-Information-on-Protest-Website The web hosting company DreamHost was ordered by a federal judge to turn over information “about individuals connected to a website used to organize protests” against the president’s inauguration. The website is alleged to have facilitated violent protests after the inauguration. Nearly 200 people who were arrested in the protests are “facing criminal riot charges” because of the violence and property destruction. The government is seeking “emails and other personal information of people” who interacted with the DisruptJ20 website. The warrant sought by the government raises serious First Amendment issues. People have the right to communicate, organize, and protest without having their free speech rights violated. The federal judge in the case has set limits on what kind of searches of the information the Department of Justice can do.

Democrats Pushing to Shut Down Voter Fraud Commission http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5553-Democrats-Pushing-to-Shut-Down-Voter-Fraud-Commission Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing to end President Trump’s voter fraud commission. "If the president wants to truly show that he rejects the discrimination agenda of the white supremacist movement, he will rescind the executive order that created this commission," Schumer said. Democrats are arguing that the commission has a hidden agenda. Namely to restrict the voting rights of minorities. If Senator Schumer can’t intimidate the president into shutting it down voluntarily, the senator plans to amend a “must-pass” bill to force the commission to shut down. The White House says that the purpose of the commission is to identify vulnerabilities in the voting process as well as study voter suppression and voter fraud.

No Individual Right to Own Firearms Says Justice http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5552-No-Individual-Right-to-Own-Firearms-Says-Justice Associate Justice Stephen Breyer does not see a right for individuals to bear arms. Instead, the justice considers the Second Amendment to be a collective right. According to Breyer, Congress can’t call up and disband the state militia because a well-armed state militia “is necessary for the security of a free state, and therefore, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” But that does not give the individual the right “to keep a gun next to his bed.” Breyer’s argument forces the Second Amendment into an “either/or framework when it is actually a both/and statement.” It is about militias and the individual right to bear arms. If the framers of the Constitution understood that there was no individual right to bear arms, then it is probable that firearms would have been seized from the citizenry.

Canada Bracing for Influx of new Immigrants http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5551-Canada-Bracing-for-Influx-of-new-Immigrants Canadians have seen a massive increase in immigrants crossing into their country from the United States during the first part of this year. Many of them are from Central American countries and Haiti who entered the U.S. illegally, and fear that the crackdown by the Trump administration will result in their being deported. The liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is thrilled by this and is welcoming the immigrants with open arms.

Other Canadians are not so enthusiastic. This is particularly true in French speaking Quebec where most of the immigrants are being sent. This has caused a strain on the resources of the province, and is producing a backlash in what was considered a liberal political stronghold. There is also concern that the new arrivals are not being vetted to weed out potential gang members and even terrorists.

The guidelines do not automatically order the discharge of all transgender individuals currently serving in the military, but will leave it up to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to review each case individually.

However, no one identified as transgender will be allowed to join the military, and the Pentagon will be instructed to stop spending money on special medical regimes for transgender personnel currently serving, and who are allowed to continue to serve. Such medical services can be very expensive and the Trump administration believes the money can best be used elsewhere.

China was one of the 15 countries on the United Nations Security Council that imposed economic sanctions on North Korea because of their continued efforts to develop nuclear weapons.

However, it appears that the Chinese want the sanctions to be obeyed by people and businesses in other countries, but not its own citizens or companies. This has been typical of China’s actions in the past. It has propped up North Korea for decades.

In the case of New Orleans it has already suffered flooding this year due to the fact that pumping stations have been allowed to fall into disrepair. Since most of the city is below sea level these pumps are often the only things that can prevent floods. The democrat mayor and city council are being blamed by many for the flooding problems due to mismanagement and misuse of funds.

The police had been watching the van because it had returned to the area several times.

The driver was detained by police and has been identified as a Spanish national. The incident is still under investigation, but is a clear indication of how on edge the people and governments of Europe are after the horrific attacks in Spain.

Trump Dossier Investigation Widens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5546-Trump-Dossier-Investigation-Widens Early in the presidential campaign the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign released a dossier that was prepared by a former British spy, Christopher Steele for a shadowy group called Fusion GPS. The dossier contained all kinds of claims about Trump and his alleged ties with the Russians. The entire thing was found to be fraudulent, but the media and democrats have continued to make claims of collusion between Trump, his campaign, and the Russians.

Now the Senate Judiciary Committee, and several private groups, as well as courts in the United States and Great Britain are all looking into Fusion GPS and trying to determine who financed the dossier and how it was prepared.

The apology was obviously not enough for the people of Missouri, since already almost 16.000 people have signed a petition to have her removed from office and prosecuted.

This type of threat against a President is not taken lightly, and there is also movement in the Missouri legislature to strip her of her seat. In addition, she is also being investigated by the Secret Service agency.

For years veterans who have been denied benefits, or been declared incompetent to handle their own finances have had to go through an appeal process that is stressful and time consuming.

It could often take years for the appeal to even be considered, and veterans could not even get updates on where their appeals stood in the process. The new law is designed to cure those problems.

Big Month For Congress Coming Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5542-Big-Month-For-Congress-Coming-Up Congress and the White House have several pieces of legislation that it must pass prior to the end of the fiscal year. On the table is legislation dealing with raising the debt ceiling, funding government agencies, healthcare and tax reform. The president also must make a decision on an Obama-era amnesty program for young illegal aliens. If he keeps it, he will anger his base. If he ends the program, Democrats will do even more to block his agenda. And in the middle of all this is a threat by the president to shut down the government if Republican leadership fails to push his agenda. The president insists that the next budget include funding for his border wall. House conservatives insist on spending reforms before any budget legislation gets their support. Former Senator Rick Santorum is building a coalition of governors and congressional Republicans to make yet another push for replacing the failing Obamacare system. Democrats say that Santorum’s plan is the biggest threat yet to the Affordable Healthcare Act. With the personal animosity the president is able to stir up with Republican leaders, September is likely to be a tumultuous month.

The woman sought to abort her six month old unborn child. During the abortion, “she sustained a cardiac arrest.” The autopsy report shows that the woman was “short of breath, and her oxygen saturation dropped below her baseline.” Additionally, there was evidence of blood clots in her lungs. Abortion-Free New Mexico said that it grieved with the family over the woman’s death. The organization works to “expose the barbaric nature of late term abortion in New Mexico.” Southwestern Women’s Options clinic is under investigation on several issues including fetal tissue trafficking. Criminal referrals have also been issued for the clinic and the hospital.

The FTC found the deal would have no implications on antitrust law and not create an anticompetitive market. The acquisition means that Amazon will enter the retail food market and be able to make use of Whole Foods’ distribution system. In anticipation of increased competition, Walmart expects to ramp up its grocery delivery service and is coordinating with Uber to let drivers deliver groceries to customers. In the past, President Trump has tweeted about Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, even accusing Amazon of not paying sufficient taxes. However, the Trump administration did not interfere in the merger of the two companies. Making some people wonder if the president is “more bark than bite.”

When Roger Vanderklok attempted to file a complaint against a TSA agent, he was arrested at the security checkpoint at the Philadelphia International Airport. A TSA supervisor claimed that Vanderklok made a bomb threat. Surveillance video exonerated Vanderklock. He then brought a civil suit against the TSA supervisor. The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the case. The court ruled, “The threat of damages liability could indeed increase the probability that a TSA agent would hesitate in making split-second decisions about suspicious passengers.” The ruling comes just after the Supreme Court issued a ruling in June restricting “the circumstances under which a plaintiff can collect damages from government officials for constitutional violations.”

Pension Plan Insolvency http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5537-Pension-Plan-Insolvency The 114 multi-employer pension plans of 1.3 million workers are underfunded by at least $36 billion. They are expected to become insolvent over the next twenty years. The failure won’t just affect those enrolled in the plans. According to actuary, Joshua Davis, “Traditionally, participants in healthy multi-employer pension plans have been forced to pay for the guaranteed benefits of retirees and their families in failed plans. If this happens again, it will push other plans into insolvency with terrible consequences for communities across the country." Some companies are exiting the pension system. UPS paid $6.1 billion to exit one such Teamsters’ pension plan. Congress passed pension reform legislation in 2014 that allowed companies to cut back on benefits in the plans in order to prevent the plan’s insolvency. The government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s (PBGC) finances are not in good shape either. Barring any further bailouts by Congress, the PBGC will be insolvent in 2025.

Six individuals were also sanctioned. This is the first time that Chinese and Russian companies have been sanctioned for aiding North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. American banks will not be permitted to work with the sanctioned individuals and companies. And all “property and interests” of the companies will be blocked. According to U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, the goal is to isolate companies from the financial system who are supporting North Korea’s nuclear missile program. "We are taking actions consistent with UN sanctions to show that there are consequences for defying sanctions and providing support to North Korea, and to deter this activity in the future,” said Mnuchin.

If You Have Money Overseas the U.S. Government Think You’re Guilty of Something http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5535-If-You-Have-Money-Overseas-the-U.S.-Government-Think-You’re-Guilty-of-Something The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requires people with financial assets offshore to report the information on their tax return. People who are subject to the law are considered by the IRS and Congress of engaging in fraud.The National Taxpayer Advocate said, "Lacking either statistically valid data or analytical justification, the IRS has adopted a coercive approach to international taxpayers, reflecting an assumption that all such taxpayers are suspect of fraudulent activity." Because record keeping compliance with FATCA is so onerous, many companies are working to repeal the legislation. The Taxpayer Advocate suggested that the IRS get out of the withholding and enforcement mode and instead return to its “information gathering approach.” This would lessen the burdens on companies and dial down the opposition to the FATCA legislation. Chris Edwards of the Cato Institute said, “holding foreign accounts is integral to international business activities and foreign trade. FATCA is a bureaucratic abomination and should be repealed.”

Free speech does not involve shutting down speech that students find objectionable. “The public expression of many sharply divergent points of view is fundamental both to our democracy and to our mission as a university," said Christ. The chancellor indicated that she will not tolerate violent protest. "If you choose to protest, do so peacefully. That is your right, and we will defend it with vigor. We will not tolerate violence, and we will hold anyone accountable who engages in it." Christ said that safe spaces will continue to exist, but there will be limits. “[W]e would be providing students with a less valuable education, preparing them less well for the world after graduation, if we tried to shelter them from ideas that many find wrong, even dangerous."

According to many military experts the fact that former President Barack Obama often laid out his specific plans for military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, including time tables for attacks, and dates for our withdrawals led to increased American casualties and the rise of terrorist factions.

President Trump has refused to follow that pattern and that has obviously irritated Nancy. She demands that Trump provide our enemies with the information they need to kill more Americans. Some are starting to question which side she is really on.

He has recently said that he strongly opposes the protests because he believes in respecting the American flag and all that it stands for.

He called for the abolition of the filibuster rule in the Senate that requires 60 senators to vote to even allow a proposed law to be voted on. This essentially means that eight Democrats in the Senate are in control of our country.

Nothing of any significance will pass the Congress as long as this rule is in effect and many constitutional experts think the very concept is unconstitutional because it dilutes the votes of the American people who believe that majority rules in the Congress.

They have also been attacking anyone who points out the Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA foster violence in America.

Now however, the effort to stifle free speech has been taken to an incredible level by the so called sports network ESPN that has become increasingly liberal over the years. ESPN has recently decided to remove one of its announcers from calling the college football game between William and Mary University and the University of Virginia. He was not removed because he is a bad announcer, but because his name is Robert Lee, and ESPN thought that might offend someone. By the way Robert Lee is not a descendant of confederate general Robert E. Lee. In fact, the announcer is of Asian descent.

Earlier in the day, some media pundits were predicting that there would be at least 10,000 protestors at the Trump speech. Facebook ran two ads asking people to pledge to show up to protest and supposedly 7,400 signed up.

The reality was much different; only about five hundred people actually showed up and they were far outnumbered by the over 8,000 Trump supporters who showed up to hear him speak. Some ANTIFA protestors did try to cause trouble after the speech, but they numbered less than fifty. Many Trump supporters wonder how the media will spin this.

She was holding a “We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood” sign when she was confronted by the racist Planned Parenthood supporter. Janzen said, “I asked him if less black people meant less crime and he said that’s exactly what he meant.” Planned Parenthood has a documented history of racism. The organization has located abortion mills in areas where minorities make up a large percentage of the population. Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America said “Planned Parenthood is not a friend to minority communities. Their employees have been caught accepting donations to specifically target black babies. Their founder was a known eugenicist. They’ve made it their mission to prey off anyone they consider vulnerable.”

Santorum Leading New Effort to Repeal Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5525-Santorum-Leading-New-Effort-to-Repeal-Obamacare Former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is working with Republicans in the House and Senate and several governors on a new effort to repeal Obamacare. The legislation would take power over healthcare from the federal government and shift it to the states. Each state would be able to create their own plans. By including governors in the coalition, Santorum expects that governors will pressure congressional members to support the legislation. Santorum hopes the decentralized plan will “put a stake in the heart of single-payer health care.” “Now that every state will have their own healthcare system, no way will the government be able to take it back,” said Santorum. Every state will be able to experiment and try different ideas. Eventually it will be clear what works and those ideas can be adopted by other states.

Poland’s Leaders Call On EU to Rethink Immigration http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5524-Poland’s-Leaders-Call-On-EU-to-Rethink-Immigration Poland’s Interior Minister used the events in Barcelona to defend Poland’s decision to resist the European Union’s demands that Poland accept thousands of migrants. Unlike Spain, Poland has “no enclaves where people do not integrate to the country where they emigrated.” The Interior Minister said that the terror in Barcelona was the “tragic” outcome of policies that encourage “millions of people to cross the sea to come to Europe.” “We are dealing with a clash of civilizations, it must be said openly and this is the problem of all Europe,” said the Interior Minister. Poland’s Deputy Minister of Defence, encouraged EU leaders to “review their ideas on migration policy” after the terror attack. He reiterated the government’s position that Poland will not accept people who refuse to assimilate and “who do not want to belong to the society.”

Trump Promises to Build the Wall http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5523-Trump-Promises-to-Build-the-Wall During his rally in Arizona Tuesday night, President Trump pumped up the crowd by demanding Congress fund his border wall with Mexico. “We are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary. The obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it, believe me. If we have to close down our government, we are building that wall.” Absent from his speech was the call for Mexico to pay for the wall’s construction. $1.6 billion has been allocated for the border wall, but the legislation has not been voted on by Congress. It could easily be pulled from the legislation. With the deteriorating relations with Congress, funding for the wall may become harder to get. Republicans have a slim majority in the Senate. His animosity towards fellow Republicans may cause them to bail on crucial funding priorities.

Natural Gas Pipeline Construction Shut Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5522-Natural-Gas-Pipeline-Construction-Shut-Down Two judges on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals shut down a natural gas pipeline project because federal regulators failed to give “a quantitative estimate of the downstream greenhouse emissions that will result from burning the natural gas that the pipelines will transport….” The Sierra Club brought the suit against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) because of FERC’s approval of three natural gas pipelines that will move natural gas to Florida power plants. The pipeline began construction in December 2016 and is scheduled for completion in 2021. The natural gas from the pipeline was to be used to close down coal fired power plants that emit more carbon dioxide than natural gas. Judge Janice Brown dissented saying, there was no way to know “whether the power plants that will emit these greenhouse gases will come into existence or remain in operation.” If the natural gas power plants don’t get constructed it will just force the coal powered plants to keep burning coal and emit higher levels of carbon dioxide.

PayPal Backs Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5521-PayPal-Backs-Down Two conservative websites that accept donations through PayPal had their accounts suspended. Jihad Watch and American Freedom Defense Initiative were targeted after the Southern Poverty Law Center listed them as “hate sites.” ProPublica picked up on the listing and published an attack piece on the two sites. PayPal then banned the two sites from using its services. However, public blowback forced PayPal to reverse its decision. PayPal issued a bureaucratic statement reinstating its services on the two websites on Monday. Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch said, “PayPal was inundated with complaints and cancellations of accounts from people who understand that my work is not ‘hateful,’ and that it is not hate to oppose jihad terror and Sharia oppression. And so they suddenly decided I wasn’t a ‘hate group’ after all.” Spencer said that he expects the Left to keep pressuring PayPal to cut off its services for conservative sites. “We will have to fight hard to retain our freedoms.”

Senate Committee Grills Fusion GPS Co-Founder http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5520-Senate-Committee-Grills-Fusion-GPS-Co-Founder On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a lengthy interview with the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research company behind the salacious Trump dossier. The clients behind the report were not identified by co-founder Glenn Simpson. Fusion GPS initiated the investigation into candidate Trump after a Republican donor hired the company to do research. After Trump won the nomination, the Republican donor ended his participation, but a supporter of Hillary Clinton picked up the investigation. Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent with extensive ties to Russian sources. None of the claims in the report have been verified. And the president has denied them. Josh Levy, the attorney for Glenn Simpson said, “Today, a special counsel and three congressional committees are investigating ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. Fusion GPS is proud of the work it has conducted and stands by it.” Levy suggested that the Senate Judiciary Committee release a transcript of the interview.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the president have not spoken in weeks. The Majority Leader doubts President Trump can “salvage the presidency” because of all the controversies. After McConnell could not get any kind of Obamacare repeal legislation passed, President Trump suggested that if McConnell is unable to pass healthcare and tax reform and infrastructure legislation, then McConnell ought to step down from his leadership position. McConnell expressed his frustrations with the president, saying that he has “excessive expectations about the legislative process. McConnell believes the president doesn’t even want to learn the basics of governing. McConnell is reportedly furious with the president’s bad mouthing of fellow Republicans and is committed to supporting his fellow GOP senators.

The announcer’s name is Robert Lee, similar to the Confederate General Robert E. Lee. But Robert Lee is Asian and was not alive in 1861. But ESPN wants to make sure that its declining number of viewers are not offended. ESPN issued an official statement. “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.” Robert Lee will now announce the Youngstown State game in Pennsylvania.

Trump Charts new Course in Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5516-Trump-Charts-new-Course-in-Afghanistan In a sharp turn away from the actions of the Obama administration that micromanaged our military actions around the world, President Donald Trump, has chosen to follow a new course. The war in Afghanistan and the overall war against terrorism will be handled by the military commanders in the field, not by some faceless bureaucrats in Washington who never served in the military.

The President did not telegraph his exact strategy, but he did call for the obliteration of the enemy, and called on countries like Pakistan to stop turning a blind eye to the Taliban, and other terrorist organizations using their country as a safe haven. He said the continuation of such action will have serious consequences when it comes to American aid to such countries. He also insisted that victory is necessary to honor the sacrifices made by our military in the war so far and to protect our country.

Houston Man Arrested for Trying to Blow Up Statue http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5515-Houston-Man-Arrested-for-Trying-to-Blow-Up-Statue A 25 year old Houston man, who had recently been released from probation a short time ago for storing explosives, has now been arrested for trying to detonate a bomb and blow up a confederate statue in Houston’s Hermann Park. A park ranger saw Andrew Schneck acting suspiciously near the base of the statue of confederate hero Richard Dowling. When he arrested the man he found that he was in possession of some powerful explosives, and a rather sophisticated detonation device.

When the FBI and ATF agents searched the suspect’s home in near the museum district and Rice University they found more chemicals and explosives. When questioned, Schneck said he was going to blow up the statue because he didn’t like the guy.

U.S. Pacific Fleet Ceases Operations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5514-U.S.-Pacific-Fleet-Ceases-Operations Following the collision of the guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain with an oil tanker in the Strait of Malacca near Singapore, the Pacific fleet has suspended some operations, particularly by the 7th Fleet. The McCain incident was the second in the last few months, and ten sailors are still missing. Seven American sailors were killed in a similar collision involving the USS Fitzgerald.

The suspension of operations could not come at worse time since the 7th Fleet is deployed to help contain the dangerous aspirations of Kim Jong Un, the erratic dictator of North Korea. However, the navy rightly believes that there some serious problems with command and control in the fleet that must be addressed.

This weekend was the second most violent weekend of the year with the extended Fourth of July weekend being the worst with 102 people shot. Despite having the most restrictive gun control laws in the country Chicago is now one of the most violent cities in the world.

Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago continues to put politically correct restrictions on the police that limit their effectiveness in fighting crime. He also continues to refuse to allow authorities to cooperate with the federal government to deport illegal aliens. He wants Chicago to be a sanctuary that of course leaves the city and its people vulnerable to violent foreign gangs like MS-13.

The police have also confirmed that the imam who they believe radicalized the members of the terrorist cell is also dead. However, news is breaking of another incident in France where a terrorist drove a car into a bus stop.

Obamacare Architect Settles’ Fraud Case http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5511-Obamacare-Architect-Settles’-Fraud-Case Jonathan Gruber, an MIT professor and known as a consultant on the development of Obamacare was canned as a consultant for Vermont’s healthcare system. Gruber was under investigation for his billing practices. He’d been hired under the former governor as “an economic consultant to assess, examine and provide economic models” for a single-payer health care system. It was deemed too expensive for the state’s residents. Gruber violated Vermont’s Civil False Claims Act. He sent at least two invoices “falsely charging the state and its taxpayers for work which was never actually completed by Gruber.” Under the settlement, Gruber won’t get any money and that state’s attorney general won’t prosecute him. Gruber became notorious after he praised the lack of transparency in the political process and gloated over the stupidity of the American voter.”

Pope Francis urged nations to welcome migrants even going so far as to say that the migrant’s personal dignity “obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security.” The pontiff’s remarks came just days after terror attacks in Barcelona, Spain. The pope said that migrants should be guaranteed access to basic services including health care, access to consulates and the justice system, and the ability to open a bank account. Additionally, the pope called for employment opportunities and the right to citizenship. The leader of Italy’s anti-immigrant party said, “if you want to do it in the Vatican, go ahead. But as a Catholic, I don’t think Italy can welcome and support the whole world.” The pope lives in Vatican City which is walled and protected.

Last week BT announced that half of the remaining 40,000 telephone boxes will be ditched. Smart phone ownership has contributed to the decline in usage. But the beloved boxes are being repurposed. BT has run an adoption program where the red booths can be put to more productive use. Some uses so far have turned the boxes into defibrillator stations, “Honor-system community libraries, and micro-galleries.” Two entrepreneurs fitted two of their red boxes as coffee shops. Another businessman used his box to create a salad bar business. Another company is turning the red phone boxes into mini-offices fitted with wifi, electrical outlets, phone, printer and scanner. Monthly membership is 25 pounds or $32.

Secret Service Needs More Money http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5507-Secret-Service-Needs-More-Money Republicans loved to complain about all the vacationing that former President Obama did and the cost to taxpayers. However, President Trump is far exceeding his predecessor’s travel costs, and it’s ripping into the Secret Service’s budget. The president travels frequently to his properties in Florida, New Jersey, and Virginia. In addition, there are 42 people that need Secret Service protection. The agency said that it had enough money to protect the president through September, but it is running up against spending limits. Last year Congress had to increase the agency’s spending caps. The director of the Secret Service will ask Congress to increase the spending caps this year as well. The agency has been struggling for over a decade with funding due to “an overall increase in operational tempo.”

America’s Fiscal Swamp to Get Worse http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5506-America’s-Fiscal-Swamp-to-Get-Worse Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Congress would raise the debt ceiling. “There is zero chance ——no chance—— we won’t raise the debt ceiling,” said the senator at an event with the Treasure secretary. By sometime in October the Treasury will be out of accounting tricks, delay tactics , and other “extraordinary measures” to keep the country’s debt paid on time. Some Republican lawmakers wanted to use the impending deadline to extract spending concessions from McConnell in exchange for their support. However, McConnell and the White House are pushing for a clean hike in the debt ceiling. Republicans expect some Democratic support. Secretary Mnuchin said, "I'm all for spending controls, but as it relates to the debt limit, this is not about spending money, it's about paying for what we've spent, and we cannot put our credit on the line."

He acknowledged that his “original instinct was to pull out” but when sitting in the Oval Office, perspectives change. During a prime time address to the nation, the president said that he will not pull troops out of Afghanistan. Instead he plans to focus on a new strategy that will enable the United States to win. The president said that a rapid exit from Afghanistan would let it become a safe haven for terror groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda. The military has recommended an increase of 4,000 troops. But the president did not elaborate on troop levels, timetables, or strategy. “I will not say when we are going to attack, but attack we will,” said President Trump.

It is the oldest monument in America that honors the explorer. The monument was attacked with a sledge hammer, leaving a hole in the middle of it. Vandals placed signs around the monument saying, “Racism: Tear it down.” And “The future is racial and economic justice.” The vandals documented their destruction on video. A narrater says, "Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere. Columbus initiated a centuries-old wave of terrorism, murder, genocide, rape, slavery, ecological degradation, and capitalist exploitation of labor in the Americas. That Columbian wave of destruction continues on the backs of Indigenous, African-American, and brown people." "What sort of culture clings to those monuments in 2017?"

War Within the Democratic Party http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5503-War-Within-the-Democratic-Party The Democratic Party is divided over whether to continue its focus on minorities and well educated white voters or make an effort to reach out to working-class American voters to broaden its base. Its unclear what Democrats stand for aside from hating President Trump and the voters who voted for him. "To average Americans, Democrats stand for the party of contempt. They stand for the party of contempt for ordinary Americans, for their struggles, also, for sort of traditional values," said reporter Bret Stephens. Representative Brendan Boyle conceded that there are elements within the Democratic party who want to write off white working-class voters. But he personally rejected that view. "Anyone who says that we should kind of turn the page and reject those voters — first of all, I think it's wrong to begin with, and second, not in our political interest," Boyle said.

Comprehensive Review Of Naval Operations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5502--Comprehensive-Review-Of-Naval-Operations In the wake of two collisions with merchant ships, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), Admiral John Richardson, announced “a global pause in naval operations.” On Monday morning off the coast of Singapore, the USS John S. McCain became the second ship this year to collide with a merchant ship. The Navy chief said that everything possible was being done to assist the crew, families, and ship. Because this is the second such incident, the Navy plans a comprehensive investigation into operations. "This trend demands more forceful action. As such, I've directed an operational pause be taken in all of our fleets around the world,” said Richardson. "In addition to that operational pause, I've directed a more comprehensive review to ensure that we get at the contributing factors, the root causes of these incidents.”

However, critics are already pointing out that the groups that Google has partnered with are suspect to say the least. They include Propublica that is funded by far left donors such a George Soros, and the Southern Poverty Law Center that has become notorious for labeling legitimate conservative groups as hate groups simply because they disagree with the leftist political agenda. It is suspected that this project is designed to stifle free speech and eliminate conservatives from the internet entirely. It is a pattern that already is apparently being used by sites like Facebook.

Authorities are also seeking a prominent imam Abdelbaki Es Satty who it is widely believed to have radicalized the dozen or more young men who involved in the attacks.

Secretary of Defense Mattis said of the president’s announcement, “He wants to be the one to announce it to the American people, so I’ll stand silent until then.” Mattis said that he is “very comfortable that the strategic process was sufficiently rigorous and did not go in with a preset condition in terms of what questions could be asked or what decision would be made.” Mattis said, “It is not just an Afghanistan strategy. So if you look at the region, it’s a South Asia strategy, and we’ll be addressing those issues in it.” Although National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster wanted to increase troop levels, President Trump wanted to come up “very different courses of action” so as not to repeat the “failed strategies of his predecessors.”

U.S. Destroyer Collision http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5497-U.S.-Destroyer-Collision The USS John McCain, a guided-missile destroyer, collided with an oil tanker off the coast of Singapore Monday 5:24 am local time. At least 10 sailors are missing and five others were hurt. The USS McCain was damaged on its left rear. Sailors were fighting flooding in several locations. It had limited propulsion and electrical power but traveling to port under its own power. Earlier the McCain had lost its ability to steer, but it had been regained by the time of the collision. The ship was headed to Singapore for “a routine port visit.” This marks the second collision within the last two months. The USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship. Seven sailors died in that incident. The captain was relieved command and other sailors were punished for poor seamanship and errors in watch duty. The USS John McCain is named after the grandfather and father of Senator John McCain.

Petition to Label Antifa a Terror Organization Passes Crucial Hurdle http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5496-Petition-to-Label-Antifa-a-Terror-Organization-Passes-Crucial-Hurdle- A petition on the White House website asking that Antifa be recognized as a terrorist organization passed the 100,000 signature mark just days after it was launched. "AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States," the petition states. Leftist Antifa protestors have become notorious for their hatred of free speech and violent opposition to Trump supporters. In Berkley, California Antifa protestors set fires, smashed windows and assaulted people. Linwood Michael Kaine, son of Senator Tim Kaine, was arrested as an Antifa participant during a violent protest in early May in Minnesota. He was later charged with three misdemeanors. It is up to the White House to take the next step on the petition. Other petitions crossing the 100,000 signature mark have gone nowhere.

Speaker Ryan Told Republicans to Run From Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5495-Speaker-Ryan-Told-Republicans-to-Run-From-Trump Before the 2016 election, Speaker Ryan told his fellow GOP House members to run away from candidate Donald Trump and do anything they could to save themselves from him. Ryan said that they should be focused on holding Hillary Clinton accountable, according to Representative Louie Gohomert. Gohomert was astonished at Ryan’s comments. Speaking up on the conference call, Gohomert said, “Are you crazy” We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable.” Gohomert said that he is dismayed as government leadership finds ways to avoid doing what is best for America. “We don’t want to go down in history as the generation that was fine with making the future for our kids much worse than we had it,” said the congressman. After the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, Gohomert said that Republicans wanted to increase their security as government officials. Democrats wanted to focus on gun control and ignore the hate and violence they had stirred up. Gohomert said that GOP leadership needed to push for national reciprocity for concealed carry so that Americans can protect themselves.

Charles Barkley Says It’s Waste of Time To Talk About Statues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5494-Charles-Barkley-Says-It’s-Waste-of-Time-To-Talk-About-Statues Retired NBA star Charles Barkley says that it’s a waste of time to be focusing on statues. He thought blacks ought to ignore them and get on with living their lives. “I’m not going to waste my time worrying about these Confederate statues; that’s wasted energy. You know what I’m gonna do? I’m going to keep doing great things; I’m going to keep trying to make a difference, number one, in the black community, because I’m black, but I’m also going to try to do good things in the world.” “What we as black people need to do, we need to worry about getting our education; we need to stop killing each other; we need to try to find a way to have more economic opportunity and things like that.” Barkley thought it was a time waster to be arguing with neo-Nazis who make it their pastime to hate.

USC’s Mascot Scrutinized for Racism http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5493-USC’s-Mascot-Scrutinized-for-Racism The University of Southern California has a quandary. The university’s mascot is a white horse. And the horse’s name is Traveler. Robert E. Lee’s had a horse too. And the horse’s name was Traveller. The names are spelled nearly identically too. USC’s horse has one “L” in its name. Lee’s horse had two “Ls”. Saphia Jackson, a co-director of USC’s Black Student Assembly pointed out that “white supremacy hits close to home” when referencing the mascot’s name. According to USC’s website the “mascot horse is a symbol of ancient Troy. Its rider, with costume and sword, is a symbol of a Trojan warrior.” USC’s defense continued, “USC’s Traveler is and has always been a proud symbol of Troy. There is no truth to any other claims or rumors about its name.”

Moore Leading Strange in Alabama Race http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5492-Moore-Leading-Strange-in-Alabama-Race The latest poll on the Alabama Senate Race has the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice leading incumbent Luther Strange. 51 percent of voters are supporting Moore. Strange has 32 percent with 17 percent undecided. Moore is leading almost everywhere within the state and is gaining the support of voters who supported the other candidates in the race. Supporters of Representative Mo Brooks appear to have shifted their support to Moore. It is expected that Senator McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund will spend heavily in the race to support Luther Strange. During the primary, $10 million was spent on behalf of Strange, yet 67 percent of the Alabama electorate rejected Strange. Although President Trump tweeted his support for Luther Strange in the primary, he has not said who he will support in the runoff.

Operation Choke Point Choked to Death http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5491-Operation-Choke-Point-Choked-to-Death Under the Obama Administration, businesses that the administration wanted to shut down were subjected to all kinds of harassment. Companies believed to be at high risk for fraud and money laundering were targeted. Short-term lending companies and firearms businesses were specifically in the administration’s crosshairs. The administration used banking laws to cut off firearm businesses ability to access banking services. The Department of Justice ended the program on August 17th. Representative Bob Goodlatte said, "We applaud the Trump Justice Department for decisively ending Operation Choke Point. The Obama administration created this ill-advised program to suffocate legitimate businesses to which it was ideologically opposed by intimidating financial institutions into denying banking services to those businesses . . . .This is no way for law enforcement to operate and runs counter to principles enshrined in our Constitution." Many businesses had to close down after their banking relationships were terminated. The Community Financial Services Association of America plans to continue its lawsuit to hold the regulatory agencies accountable and so that those “wrongly targeted by Operation Choke Point are allowed to reestablish banking relationships.”

IT Staffers May Have Sold Classified Information http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5489-IT-Staffers-May-Have-Sold-Classified-Information While Democrats accuse President Trump of colluding with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, Congressional Democrats appear to have let information waltz right out of their offices and into the hands of Russian and other state actors. The IT staffers whom Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz sought to protect and keep on her payroll “are being investigated for potentially stealing sensitive information on U.S. lawmakers and selling it to foreign governments.” Possibly 80 offices were compromised. The staffers may have sold the information to the intelligence services of Pakistan or Russia. The national security investigation is looking into whether stolen and classified information could have been used to blackmail members of Congress. An official familiar with the investigation said, “This is a massive, massive scandal.”

Good News for Children Suffering from Peanut Allergies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5488-Good-News-for-Children-Suffering-from-Peanut-Allergies Researchers in Australia developed a “peanut desensitization therapy” that is so effective that two-thirds of children participating in the trial are now regularly eating peanuts as a part of their diet. The therapy uses a probiotic to “nudge” a person’s immune system into changing the immune system’s response to the allergen. Four years after the trial ended, 70 percent of those treated were “completely tolerant” of peanut products. The treatment will undergo broader clinical trials. Professor Mimi Tang who headed the research believes that this is “a major step forward in identifying an effective treatment to address the food allergy problem in western societies.” There are potentially millions of people who could benefit from this therapy in coming years.

New Unified Combatant Command Created http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5487-New-Unified-Combatant-Command-Created In recognition of the growing threat of cyber attacks, President Trump elevated the Pentagon’s Cyber Command to a new unified combatant command. General John Hyten who oversaw the Pentagon’s Cyber Command said, “Our ability to deter major power conflict also depends on our ability to deter in all domains —— particularly space and cyber.” He said that North Korea “has demonstrated its capability and willingness to conduct destructive cyber -attacks against the United States and its allies.” In a statement by President Trump he said, “This new Unified Combatant Command will strengthen our cyberspace operate and create more opportunities to improve our nation’s defense. The elevation of the United States Cyber Command demonstrates our increased resolve against cyberspace threats and will help reassure our allies and partners and deter our adversaries.” Commanders will now have a greater voice in pushing for the use of offensive and defensive cyber tools when conflicts arise in the future.

Mnuchin was at the press conference while the president made is controversial remarks. As of Friday evening, 336 of Mnuchin’s fellow Yale classmates called upon the Treasury Secretary to resign. “We, some of your fellow members of the Yale College Class of 1985, write to you today in response to President Trump’s comments on the recent events in Charlottesville. We believe it is your moral obligation to resign your post as Secretary of the Treasury, effective immediately,” stated the letter. The authors pointed out that the president’s comments were antithetical to the values that they as Americans held. The letter writer’s conclusion once again called on Mnuchin to resign. "We call upon you, as our friend, our classmate, and as a fellow American, to resign in protest of President Trump’s support of Nazism and white supremacy. We know you are better than this, and we are counting on you to do the right thing."

Monuments Are Staying Put at Gettysburg http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5485-Monuments-Are-Staying-Put-at-Gettysburg The National Park Service will not be removing Confederate statues at Gettysburg. Gettysburg was the decisive turning point in the Civil War where the northern advance of the Confederates was halted. Kati Lawhon, senior advisor to the park service, said that the statues are an important part of the site so the park service can “historically and objectively tell the stories the monuments commemorate.” More than 7,000 soldiers died at Gettysburg in the three day battle. 1,300 monuments on the site show visitors what happened. 30 of the monuments “depict the Confederate Democrats.” 3.7 million visitors come to Gettysburg every year.

Senator Takes On President Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5484-Senator-Takes-On-President-Trump Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska expects that America will see more violence as neo-Nazis, white supremacists and leftists clash. A critic of President Trump, Senator Sasse wrote a lengthy post on his Facebook page. In a post entitled “The Next Charlottesville,” Sasse wrote, “It feels like violence is coming. I’m not sure if this moment is like the summer of '67 or not. But it might be. Before that violence strikes again, it's up to us to reaffirm that exceptional American Creed again today, with our neighbors, and in our kids' hearts." The senator does not expect that President Trump will be able to offer the nation a solution. “I doubt that Donald Trump will be able to calm and comfort the nation in that moment," Sasse said. "He (and lots of others) will probably tell an awful combination of partial truths and outright falsehoods. On top of the trust deficits that are already baked so deeply in, unity will be very hard to come by." The senator believes that the alt-right now feels emboldened since the president offered a half-hearted rebuke last Monday.

One Congressman’s Expectations for His Driver http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5483-One-Congressman’s-Expectations-for-His-Driver Representative Todd Rokita of Indiana has high expectations for his chauffeur. An eight page memo lists in excruciating detail the responsibilities of his driver. The driver is expected to provide as smooth a ride as possible, giving verbal warning of sudden stops and turns. He is to avoid “unnecessary conversation” as the congressman will be using the drive time to prepare for his day. Like the president’s “nuclear football,” the driver is expected to have a supply case “referred to as the ‘football.’” Only this lowly congressman’s “football” won’t carry nuclear codes to blow up the world. Instead, the “football” will carry twenty specific mundane items including “tooth brush and tooth paste, business cards, bottled water, napkins and Kleenex, Lozenges-brand cough drops, a stapler and sampler remover, Post-it notes and Shout wipes.” The driver is expected to speak to as many constituents as possible, collecting relevant contact information and entering the data into a database. As well, the driver is to take notes on all interactions with constituents and reporters and capture interactions on social media.

Get Paid to House Homeless People http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5482-Get-Paid-to-House-Homeless-People Politicians on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors are offering homeowners up to $75,000 to house homeless people on their own property. It’s estimated that there are 61,000 homeless in Los Angeles. And the number increased after a shelter was recently shut down. “Homeowners in unincorporated communities who qualify can receive up to $75,000 to build a second dwelling in areas zoned for such structures, while others may get $50,000 to update and legalize an existing dwelling.” $550,000 has been allocated to fund the program. The program was developed after state politicians passed legislation in 2016 overriding local zoning restrictions to make it easier for homeowners to build additional structures on their property to house the homeless.

Confused Mayor of Charlottesville http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5481-Confused-Mayor-of-Charlottesville The mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia said that in the wake of last week’s violence, concealed carry rights need to be limited. Mayor Mike Singer said, “While I am…a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, that right, like all Constitutional rights, comes with limits. Just as machine guns cannot be owned by civilians in this country…it should not be acceptable to open-carry or concealed-carry firearms at an event of the sort we saw last weekend.” The Second Amendment supporting mayor might be somewhat confused. There are states that do not allow citizens to own machine guns. But many states do allow citizens to own the weapons legally. There was no violence associated with firearms at the demonstrations in Charlottesville. Restricting the right to open carry or carry concealed would not have changed one thing in Charlottesville last Saturday.

Farnham set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise at least $1 million to ship all of the Confederate statues to President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Farnham wrote, “President Moral Black Hole is a big fan of all the "beautiful" statues of Confederate war heroes that were put up by white supremacists in the Twenties. He doesn't think they should be taken down. Respectfully, we disagree with President Drunk Uncle. We think that history isn't threatened by removing physical objects from public places -- only the fragile egos of cowardly hateful people are.” By Friday evening, the fundraising site had received $678 from 38 contributors.

But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.” Bannon returned to Breitbart News. From his vantage point he will begin going after people he perceives as his enemies: Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster, Speaker Ryan, and Majority Leader McConnell. With Bannon gone, the president has only his New York, left leaning advisers to guide him. President Trump will move left on policy issues including more overseas military interventionism.

Over the years the channel has become increasingly involved in advocating the Al Gore view of climate change. Coleman says it is all nonsense and he doesn’t care who he alienates in the process. He says climate change advocates say he is a denier who should be jailed or even put to death.

He doesn’t care and continues to expose the fraud on his website and blog. Interesting, climate change was originally billed as a warning of global cooling resulting in a new ice age. When that proved to be untrue the theory was changed to global warming and then to simply climate change. Now it is evolving into being called “extreme weather.”

The investigation of a special counsel is mostly done in secret, as are the investigations of grand juries. However, there have already been leaks and so far there appears to be no evidence emerging that directly links President Trump or anyone close to him with the Russians.

There were certainly some contacts, but those are not illegal by themselves and there appears to be no solid evidence of any crimes being committed or even any improper collusion to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. The whole investigation is beginning to be criticized as more of a fishing expedition then a true investigation.

It is claiming that the number of Americans that have been injured apparently by sonic devices is considerably higher than the six reported. It is at least ten or more.

The origin of these sonic attacks has still not been determined, but apparently this started occurring shortly after Obama ordered the U.S. Embassy reopened. The attacks were completely covered up by the Obama administration. The attacks could have been conducted by the Cubans themselves, or the various diplomats and operatives from countries like North Korea, Iran, and even Russia.

Left Calls for Destruction of more Than Just Confederate Statues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5475-Left-Calls-for-Destruction-of-more-Than-Just-Confederate-Statues It has been predicted that the left’s assault on Confederate memorials is just the tip of the iceberg, and that the ultimate goal is to destroy America’s traditions, history, and eventually the Constitution. It appears from events in the last few days that this is in fact the case. Black Lives Matter wants laws to be passed making it illegal not only to display any Confederate memorabilia, but to even own it privately.

In the meantime Vice News has proposed blowing up Mount Rushmore, the iconic monument to four U.S. Presidents carved into the side of a mountain in South Dakota. The reasoning behind this is unclear since while Jefferson and Washington are on the monument so are Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. This clearly has nothing to do with the Confederacy, but with the heart of America.

They have been known for using unnamed sources, quotes from documents they have never seen or verified, and outright fake news. Yet, yesterday the Washington Post reached a new low even for it.

WAPO decided to use the human tragedy in Barcelona, Spain not to go after Islamic terrorism, but to attack Trump. They criticized him for using the word terrorism in referring to what happened in Spain, but not what happened in Charlottesville. The paper ignores the fact that Spanish authorities had already labeled it an act of terrorism. In the case of Charlottesville Trump had said it could be called an act of terrorism on simply murder.

In what appears to be an effort to assist ANTIFA and other radical groups in destroying confederate monuments, CNN has posted a map showing where hundreds of these monuments and statues are located. The map came from the left wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

In addition, CNN used information from the SPLC to incorrectly label the American Family Association (AFA) as a hate group. The group is a family oriented organization that supports traditional marriage among other things. CNN quickly retracted the story and remove the designation from its website. However, the AFA is worried that this may encourage violence against it offices and employees.

Leftists Plan “Destroy the Confederacy” Event in Houston http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5472-Leftists-Plan-“Destroy-the-Confederacy”-Event-in-Houston Led by the ultra-left Black Lives Matter chapter in Houston, Texas groups are calling for a Destroy the Confederacy demonstration at a public park where a statue of Texas hero, Sam Houston, is located. It is believed that the groups intend to engage in violence and either vandalize or try to take down the statue. The online announcement of the demonstration specifically warns people not to bring their children.

The irony of all this is that the organizers of the demonstration either don’t know history or don’t care. While at some point Houston did own slaves, he opposed slavery as an institution, and lost his position as Governor of Texas because he opposed Texas succession and joining of the confederacy.

Researchers found that “people donated around 20 percent more to migrants than to needy locals to begin with, and when drugged with oxytocin . . . participants already well-disposed to migrants gave even more generously.” People negatively disposed towards migrants were not affected. However, when drugged they donated 74 percent more when they were shown how generous others had been. A professor with the University of Bonn’s Department of Psychiatry concluded peer pressure and oxytocin were able to break down resistance of “selfish motives.” “Given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures,” he suggested.

Missouri State Senator Hopes The President Is Assassinated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5469-Missouri-State-Senator-Hopes-The-President-Is-Assassinated A Missouri state senator posted a statement on her personal Facebook page saying, “I hope Trump is assassinated!” she later deleted the comment. Maria Cappelle-Nadal was exasperated with the “trauma and despair” after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and the president’s response to it. In an interview with the Kansas City Star, Chappelle-Nadal said, “The way I responded this morning was wrong,” Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate.” “It was wrong for me to post that. But I am not going to shy away from the damage this president is causing.” The Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh condemned the post. “Promoting, supporting or suggesting violence against anyone, especially our elected leaders, is never acceptable.” In response to the post, Republican Representative Kirk Mathews tweeted, “This is disgusting @MariaChappelleN. You should be ashamed. Resign.” Chappelle-Nadal said that she was not going to resign.

Forcing Tolerance http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5468-Forcing-Tolerance Politicians in California can’t allow freedom and liberty. Nor can they allow freedom of speech. No. They must force political correctness on their subjects. Proposed legislation in the California State Senate would punish people with fines and prison time who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns.” Health facilities, retirement or housing institutions would be required to comply with the gender identity of the patient. Patients would be “allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear.” For those repeat offenders who refuse re-education, fines “could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term for up to a year.” California Family Council’s Greg Burt said, “How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others? This is not tolerance.” He added, “It is not respectful to threaten people with punishment for having sincerely held beliefs that differ from your own.”

Van Drives Into Crowds in Spain http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5467-Van-Drives-Into-Crowds-in-Spain Terrorists in Barcelona, Spain, drove a van into crowds of people on a popular tourist street. The driver accelerated and zig-zagged wildly ploughing into crowds of tourists and locals. The driver ended his destruction 500 yards from where it began. The driver fled on foot with a possible accomplice. At least 13 people were murdered. Scores of others were injured. Because of the seriousness of the injuries, more people may die. A suspect was shot two hours later while driving through a roadblock and opening fire. Two other suspects have been arrested. The head of the regional police force said the attack was designed “to kill as many people as possible.” ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Remove Lenin Statue and Confederate Memorial http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5466-Remove-Lenin-Statue-and-Confederate-Memorial Seattle mayor, Ed Murray issued a statement saying that he wants both the Confederate memorial at Lake View Cemetery and the statue of Lenin taken down. “We should remove all these symbols, no matter what political affiliation may have been assigned to them in the decades since they were erected.” He continued, “We should never forget our history, but we also should not idolize figures who have committed violent atrocities and sought to divide us based on who we are or where we came from.' The statue of Lenin was created in 1981 in Czechoslovakia. Lewis Carpenter, a friend of the sculptor, found the statue in a junkyard. He bought it for $13,000 and spend $40,000 to haul it to the United States and wanted to place it in front of a Slovak restaurant. Under Lenin’s orders millions of people were killed or suffered from hunger and disease. “Lenin’s hatred for all religions resulted in endless violence against the Russian Orthodox Church and other faiths.” Russia would have had a different outcome had Lenin never risen to power. There would have been no Soviet Union and no secret police.

Trump Takes On Republican Senators http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5465-Trump-Takes-On-Republican-Senators On Thursday, President Trump attacked two U.S. Senators on Twitter. Senator Graham of South Carolina charged the president with “dividing Americans, not healing them.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like Ms. Heyer. I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency." The president shot back, "Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can't forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!" In response, Senator Graham tweeted that the president is receiving praise from some of the most “hate-filled individuals and groups in the country. For the sake of our Nation ——as our President——please fix this. History is watching us all.” In his second attack, President Trump took on Senator Jeff Flake. The president celebrated Kelli Ward’s primary race against Flake. He went on saying Flake is “WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!”

False Claims By Virginia Governor http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5464-False-Claims-By-Virginia-Governor Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe made two false claims in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville. The governor claimed that white supremacists hid weapons caches around Charlottesville, and he claimed that state police did not have the necessary gear and equipment necessary to protect themselves. In an interview with a Black Lives Matter activist, the governor claimed that the white supremacists and neo-Nazis were heavily armed and that police did not intervene because police did not want the violence to escalate. “They had battering rams and, you know, we had picked up different weapons they had stashed around the city,” said McAuliffe. Speaking for the Virginia State Police, Corinee Geller said that no weapons caches were found. Additionally Geller added, “No, the State Police did not have inferior equipment. Our personnel are equipped, and were equipped, with the necessary protective and tactical gear for their safety and, obviously, to protect those that were in attendance of the event." The governor’s office had no explanation for the differing statements.

Possibly More American Diplomats Affected by Sonic Device http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5463-Possibly-More-American-Diplomats-Affected-by-Sonic-Device The Trump administration has acknowledged that at least six American diplomats in Cuba have been struck by an illness that some experts believe is related to a sonic device. But the number of American diplomats in Cuba who have experienced severe health problems may be much greater than originally disclosed. Some U.S. officials are saying that the number of people affected may be more than ten, certainly in the double digits. The State Department says that the illnesses——that include severe hearing loss——began in December of 2016. But sources familiar with the events say that some people reported illnesses much earlier. The Obama administration may have mislead Congress about the nature and severity of the attack and did not inform members of Congress in a timely fashion for of fear of disrupting President Obama’s diplomatic outreach to Cuba. In May, the Trump administration kicked out two junior level Cuban diplomats in retaliation for the incident. Critics say that senior level diplomats should have been thrown out of the U.S. in order for Cuba to get the message not to mess with American diplomats.

Congressman Meets With Assange http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5462-Congressman-Meets-With-Assange Does Julian Assange have information that could set him free? This is the story being pushed by Representative Dana Rohrabacher. The congressman met with Julian Assange on Wednesday to try to find out who leaked the emails of top Democrats in the DNC. In the meeting, the two explored “what might be necessary to get him [Assange] out” of the Ecuadorian Embassy and to freedom. The U.S. Department of Justice reportedly plans to charge Assange with helping Edward Snowden leak classified documents. Since Julian Assange knows who leaked the documents it could be of enough importance that President Trump would issue him a presidential pardon. Assange has maintained that the Russians did not provide him with the information. He has also promised that he would never reveal the source of the information. The Trump administration’s legitimacy has been undercut by accusations of Russian hacking and collusion. No evidence has yet surfaced to substantiate the claims.

Regulations limit the money raised to $1 million. Torba said that he’s heard from dozens of people within the tech community who are “tired of the hypocrisy, double standards, and authoritarian censorship from Silicon Valley.” Gab refuses to censor users. It welcomes users “no matter their political ideology.”

Maduro Goes to Cuba for Support http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5459-Maduro-Goes-to-Cuba-for-Support In an obvious effort to bolster support for his socialist dictatorship in Venezuela Nicolas Maduro has gone to Cuba where he paid homage to Fidel Castro’s memory, and the continuing communist dictatorship in the island nation. His own country is in chaos with massive unemployment, riots in the streets of major cities, and widespread shortages of food, medicine, and other shortages.

For years, liberal politicians and Hollywood elitists have praised the slide of Venezuela into socialism, touting it as a workers’ paradise that should be emulated by the United States. Because of this, the mainstream media has basically ignored the fact that socialism has resulted in the total economic collapse of the country and the denial of basic freedoms of the people.

Liberals More Interested in Political Correctness Then Truth http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5458-Liberals-More-Interested-in-Political-Correctness-Then-Truth President Trump continues to be hammered by the liberal media and the Democrats for his statements about the events in Charlottesville, North Carolina. Despite the fact that he specifically condemned the KKK, neo Nazis, and other white supremacy groups for their part in what happened this was not enough for the left. For them, he also made the fatal mistake of saying that leftist demonstrators were also responsible for the violence. The fact that this is true and can clearly be seen in the videos doesn’t matter because to call out the violent words and actions of groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter is politically incorrect. The left never allows criticism of their own regardless of their actions.

U.S. Seeks Concessions in NAFTA Negotiations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5457-U.S.-Seeks-Concessions-in-NAFTA-Negotiations When Donald Trump was running for president in criticized the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico as being unfair to American businesses and workers. After his election he threatened to withdraw from the treaty, which prompted both Mexico and Canada to agree to renegotiate. Now the negotiations have started and the Trump administration is taking a hard line, indicating that significant concessions will have to be made by the other two nations involved.

U.S. negotiators point to the trade deficits in favor of Canada and Mexico while the negotiators for those two countries are trying to downplay their significance. It appears that these will be some long and intense negotiations.

The Virginia State police, who McAuliffe claimed had found these weapons, said the statement was untrue and they had not found any such caches.

This claim by McAuliffe comes on the heels of another false claim that eighty percent of the white nationalist protestors were carrying semi-automatic weapons. That was also untrue because there were only a hand full of people openly carrying firearms and they were not part of the rally, but were militia members trying to keep the peace between the two groups of protestors.

City police officers were present when the statue was destroyed, but did not intervene or make any arrests.

The people arrested face numerous charges including several felonies. They are all members of the Workers World Party that openly espouses communism. Of course, the communists are responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people around the world.

Free Speech in Silicon Valley Ebbs http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5453-Free-Speech-in-Silicon-Valley-Ebbs Tech companies in California’s Silicon Valley are beginning to doubt their support for free speech. Some companies are beginning to “take a more controlled stance over speech.” In 2012 on executive at Twitter called the platform the “free speech wing of the free speech party.” According to Wired Magazine, in 2012 “calls for free speech came from people who wanted to bring down dictatorships. Now they seem to come from people demanding the right to say racist stuff without being called racist.” Facebook considers fake news, under the guise of free speech, as one of the reasons Donald Trump won the presidency. Instagram’s CEO Kevin System says freedom of speech does not mean that you get to post crap online. It’s not a “public square” either. “It’s a platform people can choose to use or not.” Many people don’t realize that private companies get to determine usage policies. People may have free speech rights in public. But those rights don’t necessarily extend to private property organizations like businesses.

NAFTA Overhaul Begins http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5452-NAFTA-Overhaul-Begins North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners sat down at the negotiating table to overhaul the trade agreement. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer hoped to move the president’s trade agenda forward by addressing American manufacturing interests. The U.S. government estimates that 700,000 Americans have lost jobs specifically due to NAFTA. "For countless Americans, this agreement has failed," said Lighthizer. "We cannot ignore the huge trade deficits, the lost manufacturing jobs, the businesses that have closed or moved because of incentives—intended or not—in the current agreement." The Trade Representative plans to push President Trump’s objectives. The goals are to end unfair subsidies and “burdensome restrictions on intellectual property.” Lighthizer said that the president “is not interested in a mere tweaking of a few provisions and a couple of updated chapters. We feel that NAFTA has fundamentally failed many, many Americans and needs major improvement. During the campaign, Donald Trump promised workers in hardest hit states that he would fight for them. During the campaign, unions supported Hillary Clinton, but Trump’s narrow victories are thought to have come from blue collar workers who’ve been most affected by NAFTA. Some unions are calling for the renegotiation of NAFTA to be cancelled because the renegotiation and Trump’s immigration policies are “racist attacks on immigrants.”

A Path To Make America Competitive Again http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5451-A-Path-To-Make-America-Competitive-Again The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has laid out a blueprint for the Trump administration and Congress to follow if it wants to get serious about combatting government overreach and eliminating regulatory burdens. “Regulations cost the economy $2 trillion each year,” according to the CEI. Reforms can be made that will result in making America a more competitive economy. "Some of these reforms can be achieved via executive action, while others will require Congress to take back authority from federal departments and agencies," the report states. The CEI suggested that Congress needs to make the EPA more transparent as to how it spends its money. Bureaucrats have successfully avoided having its budget subject to Congressional oversight. Many private sector companies already seek trade opportunities and conduct market research. There is no need for the Commerce Department to do the same things, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Another area of reform could take place with the FDIC. Insuring bank deposits makes banks less careful with their depositor’s money and “provides a false sense of security to consumers.”

Trump Continues Bailout of Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5450-Trump-Continues-Bailout-of-Obamacare President Trump said the government would pay ObamaCare payments to insurers for the month of August. Insurers have been pressing Congress to continue the bailouts or cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers. Government interference in the healthcare market has so distorted prices that the only way many people can afford to pay for healthcare is to accept a government handout. If bailouts were to end, premiums would increase by at least twenty percent in 2018. Senator Lamar Alexander who heads the Senate Health Committee wants to include the bailouts in a stabilization bill funding Obamacare. A court case that found the subsidies for Obamacare to be unconstitutional is on appeal. The president has threatened to drop the appeal and let Obamacare collapse.

Governor Greg Abbot called a special session of the legislature to deal with twenty measures that he had proposed. The legislature passed ten of the measures but not the most controversial one dealing with bathrooms. Business executives in Texas lobbied hard against the legislation. In July business leaders joined pro-LGBT rights groups to pressure state legislators to not take up the legislation. In defense of not taking up the bathroom legislation, Speaker of the House, Joe Straus said, “I believe that most of the members of the House are not looking to harm the Texas economy.” Lt. Governor Dan Patrick said, “I think what I’m most unhappy with is the House quit tonight. They walked off the job.” If the governor does not call a second special session, the legislation will likely come up again in the 2019 legislative calendar.

Neighborliness Can Cut Through Racial Divide http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5446-Neighborliness-Can-Cut-Through-Racial-Divide Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson offered some ideas on racial reconciliation. As examples, he offered a couple of anecdotes from his life experience. He related that after his family bought a farm in rural Maryland, a neighbor put up a Confederate flag. Other surrounding families immediately put up American flags which had the effect of shaming the other neighbor who eventually removed the Confederate flag. In another incident, Carson’s house was vandalized. People defaced his property with “hateful rhetoric about President Trump.” Carson said he was out of town when it happened, but “embarrassed neighbors cleaned up most of the mess before we returned.” Carson thought that one way through the politics of race is to “just learn to be neighborly and to get to know each other.” He said that the neighbor who put up the Confederate flag “subsequently became friendly.”

Taxpayer Bailouts For Insurance Companies In California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5445-Taxpayer-Bailouts-For-Insurance-Companies-In-California Covered California wants to keep Obamacare afloat so badly that it might guarantee the profits of large healthcare corporations if they will stay in the exchange. Currently, the exchange is granting premium increases of 12.5 percent to companies. But it may not be enough especially if President Trump ends the cost-sharing bailouts. With so much uncertainty in the marketplace, many insurers will no longer be providing insurance in 2018. Covered California is considering a plan to incentivize insurers to continue to offer coverage. “[F]or any lack of profit or losses they suffer in 2018, California will guarantee them the right to jack up profits with higher premium increases in each of the following three years.” Covered California sees the initiative as a way to deal with market uncertainty

University Establishes Black Only Student Orientation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5444-University-Establishes-Black-Only-Student-Orientation The University of San Francisco is setting up a program that it considers politically correct, but that others consider overtly racist. It has set up a black only student orientation for incoming freshman that will supposedly be centered on the unique needs of black students. The university acknowledges that no similar programs are being established for students of other ethnic or racial backgrounds. Some people have pointed out that if such a program had been set up for white students only it would be immediately attacked as racist.

This move follows in the footsteps of other universities that have set up black only graduation ceremonies, and Evergreen University in Washington where the school administration sanctioned a black only day on campus that banned all white students and faculty members.

Mob Rule Becoming Acceptable in America http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5443-Mob-Rule-Becoming-Acceptable-in-America In Charlottesville Virginia, the protestors against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee had received a permit for their demonstration, through the intervention of a federal judge. The counter protestors had no such permit and had not applied for one. Yet, when they showed up with weapons, shields, body armor, and chemicals, they were allowed to attack the legal protestors. The police had obviously been ordered to stand down.

The same thing has now occurred in Durham, North Carolina where demonstrators tore down a statue on public property dedicated to confederate veterans. Again, the police had apparently been ordered to stand own and allow the leftists to break the law. Many people are getting concerned about how long this will be allowed to continue.

Former NSA Official Says Story of Russian Hacking of DNC Probably False http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5442-Former-NSA-Official-Says-Story-of-Russian-Hacking-of-DNC-Probably-False A former National Security Agency Technical Director has come forward to challenge the continuing narrative that Russian operatives hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s computers. Bill Binney, a member of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) says that the allegations cannot be proven because the DNC has refused to turn over their servers to investigators.

He pointed out that the NSA can track down the source of such hacks fairly easily, but the DNC has refused to allow that to happen. This adds fuel to the speculation that the so called leak of DNC emails was actually an inside job and the Russians were not involved.

Al Qaeda is Alive and Well http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5441-Al-Qaeda-is-Alive-and-Well Over the last several years ISIS has dominate the news about radical Islamic terrorism. This is certainly due to its growth, and the terrorist attacks it continues to both conduct and encourage all over the world. Yet, Al Qaeda is still alive and well and we would be ill served if we ignore that fact. Affiliates of Al Qaeda continue to grow and operate in the Middle East and North Africa.

Now, it has reared its ugly head in the United States by publishing a how to article in its online magazine Inspire urging its member to attack the rail lines and trains in both Europe and America. The article gives specific instructions on how to build devices that will derail trains. This is a credible threat since there are thousands of miles of train tracks in the United States and it is impossible to guard all of them.

ANTIFA gets a Free Pass from Media http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5440-ANTIFA-gets-a-Free-Pass-from-Media Once again violent groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter that not only call for violence the police and everyone else the groups don’t like, but practice that violence are given a free passthe media. It was clear in Charlottesville that there were hate groups like the KKK and neo Nazis at their rally, but it is also clear that they were not fighting with each other. Also present, were members of the far left group ANTIFA who were armed and wearing masks to hide their identities. Many of them were paid protestors bussed in by the left.

President Trump is being criticized for truthfully pointing out that there were two sides in the fighting and that both sides were at fault. However, once again the truth is being ignored in order for the media to push its agenda.

Media Ignoring Story About North Korea Backing Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5439-Media-Ignoring-Story-About-North-Korea-Backing-Down For weeks the liberal media has been bashing President Donald Trump for threatening massive retaliation against Kim Jong Un and his communist regime in North Korea if he launched an attack against Guam or any other part of the United States. On Monday the dictator backed down from his threats against Guam signaling that he believes that Trump will stand up to him.

This was a major victory for the Trump administration and America and should have been a major news story. However the liberal media is virtually ignoring it because it doesn’t fit the consistent anti Trump narrative.

Americans Taking on Record Debt http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5438-Americans-Taking-on-Record-Debt American household debt hit a new all time high according to a quarterly report released by the New York Federal Reserve. Every form of debt rose: mortgage, auto, student loan, and credit card debt. Aggregate debt is $164 billion higher than the earlier peak in the third quarter of 2008. The Fed raised a red flag. Delinquent debts are rising. 11.2 percent of student loan debt is over 90 days delinquent or in default. Credit scores “shifted downward somewhat” for auto loan borrowers and mortgage origination. Credit card delinquencies increased from the previous year. The Fed described it as “a persistent upward movement not seen since 2009.” The Fed could not provide an explanation as to why delinquencies had increased. But it believes the uptick in delinquencies could be “predictive of further consumer distress.”

Destruction of History http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5437-Destruction-of-History Emboldened after tearing down the statue of a Confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina, leftists are now on the hunt for more historical monuments to tear down. Stacey Abrams, a Democrat candidate for Georgia’s governorship urged the destruction of the Confederate carvings on Georgia’s Stone Mountain. She tweeted, “But the visible image of Stone Mountain’s edifice remains a blight on our state and should be removed.” Georgia’s Journal Constitution disagreed. Calling the carving on Stone Mountain “heritage, warts and all.”

Donna Brazile of the Democratic National Committee is pushing for the removal of eight Confederate statues, displayed in the statuary hall of Congress. The Council on American-Islamic Relations jumped into the fray demanding the “removal of all Confederate Memorials, flags, street names, and symbols from public spaces and property.” Meanwhile, nobody is pushing for the removal or destruction of Vladimir Lenin’s statue in Seattle, Washington. At least 20 million Russians were killed by Lenin’s Communist Party.

Drug Case Dismissed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5436-Drug-Case-Dismissed A federal judge in California dismissed a criminal marijuana case saying that the federal government is barred by statute from interfering with state laws on medical marijuana. The 2014 amendment prohibits the Department of Justice from using federal funds to prevent a state “from implementing their own state laws that authorized the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.” Representative Dana Rohrabacher, a sponsor of the amendment, said, “This is a signal that will hopefully go totally across the country—that federal prosecutors should stop wasting their time and start focusing on real criminals.” Notes from members of the DOJ’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety show that members are not enthusiastic about cracking down on states where marijuana has some legal protection.

Moore won nearly 40 percent of the primary vote on Tuesday. Luther Strange won 32 percent. Representative Mo Brooks came in third with about 20 percent of the vote. Senate Majority Leader McConnell poured $4 million into defeating Brooks. Representative Brooks has been critical of McConnell even going so far as to put a “Ditch Mitch” sign on his campaign bus in recent days. McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund is expected to pour $4 million into the runoff race to defeat Moore. Moore is the former chief justice of the state Supreme Court. He’s been removed twice from office. Once for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments display from the courthouse. The second time he was removed for telling clerks not to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples.

Iceland Touts Elimination of Down Syndrome Babies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5434-Iceland-Touts-Elimination-of-Down-Syndrome-Babies Down Syndrome children are disappearing in Iceland. What great advancement in medical science has happened to achieve this? Sadly, none at all. Iceland is resorting to a more barbaric method. Medical personnel are using murder to end Down Syndrome. Close to 100 percent of women who receive a positive prenatal screening for Down Syndrome, abort the child. Helga Sol Olafsdottir said, “We don't look at abortion as a murder. We look at it as a thing that we ended. We ended a possible life that may have had a huge complication... preventing suffering for the child and for the family." While Iceland is a leader in Down Syndrome abortions, other countries are not far behind. 67 percent of Down Syndrome babies are aborted in the United States. 77 percent in France. 98 percent in Denmark.

Texans will not have their tax dollars going to pay for abortions. Insurance providers will now be prohibited from requiring policy holders to pay for elective abortions. Individuals will be able to purchase separate, supplemental plans that would provide coverage for elective abortions. Governor Greg Abbott said, “I am grateful to the Texas legislature for getting this bill to my desk, and working to protect innocent life this special session.”

Iran Moving warships into the Atlantic http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5431-Iran-Moving-warships-into-the-Atlantic In another test of the will of the Trump administration, the Iranian government that was emboldened by the weakness and appeasement of the Obama presidency has announced that it is moving warships into the Atlantic. They claim it is a response to new sanctions imposed by Trump. It also comes after the report by the United Nations that Iran has continued to violate prohibitions against the testing of missiles.

Of major concern to many in the intelligence community is whether the North Koreans intend to, or already have shared some of their nuclear and missile technology with the rogue regime in Iran. It is probable that Trump will also respond forcefully to this new threat.

Kim Jong Un Backs Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5430-Kim-Jong-Un-Backs-Down What many in the liberal media and Democrats in Congress accused President Trump of dangerous blustering in his threats to North Korea, it apparently worked when it came to the one person who mattered, Kim Yong Un. He has backed away from his threat to launch missiles designed to land near the U.S. territory of Guam in the Pacific. He says he will watch the U.S. for future developments.

It appears to be obvious that Kim, who was clearly not concerned about anything previous presidents’ have said, believes that President Trump will order massive retaliation against him and his regime if he makes a move on the United States. It will be interesting to see how the left wing media spin this.

Criticism of Police Response in Charlottesville Increases http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5429-Criticism-of-Police-Response-in-Charlottesville-Increases Despite the efforts of Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas to defend the actions of his department and other police agencies during the Saturday riots many experts believe the whole incident was badly mishandled. Police seemed to ignore the fact that some of the protestors, and many more counter protestors were armed with bats, sticks, tear gas, and pepper spray yet, no attempt was made to disarm them.

When violence did start breaking out, the police generally stood by did nothing to break it up. In fact, Fox News reported that the state police actually retreated. There was also a report by a nearby police chief that his officers who were going to assist that day were told that nobody could be arrested without the specific permission of the Mayor of Charlottesville. This has been denied, but seems to fit what happened.

Senator Lindsey Graham was one of the first to go after Trump, and other Republican Senators and members of Congress did the same thing.

This did not sit well with many state and local Republicans reporting that they are hearing from their constituents who make up the party’s base see things differently. They believe that what Trump said initially was entirely appropriate since he called for unity, and condemned all groups that participated in violence. They are getting tired of the nitpicking of everything the President says.

Arpaio was found guilty of contempt for failing to obey a court order preventing him from targeting possible illegal aliens during traffic stops by deputies in his department.

Defenders of the Sheriff believe this was a political prosecution orchestrated by the Obama administration to punish Arpaio for his efforts to enforce immigration laws. The 85 year old sheriff faces 6 months in jail. He has not asked Trump for a pardon, but says he will accept it.

On Sunday night an Iranian drone was flown within 1,000 yards of American air craft operating from the carrier USS Nimitz. The drone was operating without the navigation lights required by international law and the operators of the drone refused to respond to radio warnings from the navy. Military officials called the actions “unsafe and unprofessional”.

This comes on the heels of a similar incident on August 8 when an Iranian drone flew within 100 feet of an American military jet that had to do an emergency maneuver in order to avoid a collision.

Trade War on Canadian Timber Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5424-Trade-War-on-Canadian-Timber-Heats-Up In May, the Trump administration slapped tariffs on Canadian lumber of up to 24 percent. The administration complained that the Canadian government subsidizes its lumber industry by letting loggers cut timber on government land cheaply and then selling it for below market prices in the United States. Since the tariff action in May, behind the scenes discussions have been ongoing. However, on Monday it was reported that the “prospects for a near-term settlement of the U.S.’Canadian lumber dispute have faded.” American trade negotiators can’t agree on what sort of deal they want to accept. Canadian negotiators are split on taking a hard line approach or taking a deal. With negotiations stalling, analyst Mark Wilde writes, "we anticipate a period of countervailing and anti-dumping duties on Canadian lumber imports as well as continued litigation around those duties." President Trump’s protectionist trade policies will make American’s poorer as the cost of lumber and home building increases.

President Denounces Racist Groups But Media Say It’s Not Enough http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5423-President-Denounces-Racist-Groups-But-Media-Say-It’s-Not-Enough President Trump was soundly criticized by the political left for his failure to specifically name the groups responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. On Monday the president corrected the record. He said, “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.” The president remembered Heather Heyer, the woman who was murdered when a driver of a vehicle plowed into a crowd of protesters. As well, the president paid tribute to the memory of two Virginia state troopers who were killed when their helicopter crashed. President Trump announced that the Department of Justice would open a civil rights investigation into James Fields, the neo-Nazi who murdered Heather Heyer and injured 20 other individuals. CNBC reporter John Harwood criticized the president’s comments tweeting, “Grudging. Bare minimum. No indication he was feeling the words he was reading.”

Slowly While chaos surrounds the White House and the presidency, President Trump is moving ahead with filling vacant seats within the federal judiciary. To date, five judges have been confirmed, thirty are pending, and 123 seats still need to be filled. If the president is able to name judges to open seats and the Senate fulfills its role in confirming the judges, President Trump will have an impact on the judiciary that will shape the future for a long time to come. Democrats have been “slow walking” the nominees. Democrat leaders are insisting on 30 hours of debate for nominees. Many of the nominations have been “outsourced” to conservative groups such as the Federalist Society. Ilya Shapiro, a member of the Federalist Society said, Elections have consequences. It can’t be understated that judicial nominations, being lifetime appointments, are huge.” She went on to say, “I’m glad this is an area President Trump is deferring to people who have good ideas about this sort of thing and running the process smoothly.”

Two Democratic lawmakers are asking the Government Accountability Office to find out if the individual mandate is being enforced by the Trump Administration. Lawmakers are wanting to know if the mandate was enforced in 2016 and if it will be enforced in 2017. They are concerned that if the mandate is not enforced, what it will mean for premiums and the stability of the marketplace. On the day of his inauguration, President Trump signed an executive order to minimize “the economic burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” “Insurers have filed initial rates and have cited uncertainty over the individual mandate and key payments to carriers as one of the reason for increasing premiums.”

McMaster and that McMaster is out to fire Bannon. On Meet the Press, McMaster was unable or unwilling to say that he can work with Bannon. Nunberg took heated issue with McMaster’s plan to send more troops to Afghanistan and stay another four years. As well, “Nobody elected Donald Trump to stay in the Paris accords, which McMaster wanted. Nobody elected him to kowtow to Iran, which McMaster wants.” Nunberg also called out Matt Drudge for linking to stories unfavorable to Bannon.

In response, former EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy, once described by Nigel Farage as having the “charisma of a damp rag” and the appearance of a “low-grade bank clerk,” tweeted back that “the days of Vatican authority in Belgium were over.” Brothers of Charity announced in May that doctors were permitted to conduct euthanasia on mentally ill patients who requested it. Reee Stockman, superior general of the order that runs the charity, condemned the decision to euthanize patients and sought the pope’s influence to intervene and demand that the action be stopped. Brothers of Charity must also sign a letter upholding the Church’s stance on sanctity of life. Anyone who does not sign the letter will face personal sanctions. The charity also faces expulsion from the Church for failure to comply.

Its parliament voted to increase military spending by $500 million, while chanting “Death to America.” This after the United States sought to impose increased sanctions on Iran for violating President Obama’s nuclear agreement. In recent weeks, the United Nations issued a report pointing out that Iran has “violated international accords banning ballistic missile work.” In recent weeks the U.S. Navy has reported several dangerous encounters with Iranian drones and naval ships. Rep. Sean Duffy said, "Iran was emboldened to flex its military muscle after eight years of President Obama’s passivity and his delivery of cold, hard cash to the regime.”

Kim Jong-un said that he would still attack if the U.S. made “arrogant provocations” and “unilateral demands.” Kim found himself backed into a corner and may have found it easier to stand down. China made it clear to the North Korean government that if it insisted on attacking Guam, it would do nothing to help North Korea deal with a response from the United States. Rhetoric had heated up over the last couple of weeks as President Trump sought to be more unpredictable than his North Korean opponent. The president’s rhetoric alarmed former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice. She accused the president of making things worse and at one point said, “We can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea.”

Inaction by Charlottesville Police Criticized http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5416-Inaction-by-Charlottesville-Police-Criticized While the liberal mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia was blaming the violence in his city on the rhetoric of Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, speculation was growing about a “police stand down” being ordered. The demonstration called “Unite the Right” had a permit for the rally and had worked with police on security.

Yet, when leftists demonstrators from violent groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA showed up armed with bats, clubs, and pepper spray the police essentially backed off and let them attack the people that had been forced out of the park when their permit was abruptly cancelled. The police inside the barricades did not try to stop the violence that was occurring just a few yards from them. In fact, Fox News reported that at one point police actually ran away from the fighting. It is doubtful that police officers would have acted this way unless they were under orders to do so.

Not surprisingly 11 of these counties went for Hillary Clinton during the election. Now, more states are coming forward and providing similar information that is being compiled by the Election Integrity Project of Judicial Watch.

The organization has determined that there are at least 462 counties where the number of registered voters exceeds 100 % of adults actually eligible to vote in these counties. That comes to a total of 3,551,760 possible fraudulent voters, or ghost voters as they are commonly referred to. Other states like Texas have also found evidence of voter fraud in the counting of absentee ballots.

He had been on the run for six years after committing a brutal murder in 2011. He was arrested last Friday in Virginia and will be extradited to New Jersey where the murder occurred.

The FBI says the arrest came about because of tips from members of the public. These types of tips are critical to law enforcement, and may have come about because the widely publicized crack down on MS-13 recently announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Driver of car in Charlottesville was Apparently a Nazi Supporter http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5413-Driver-of-car-in-Charlottesville-was-Apparently-a-Nazi-Supporter James Alex Fields, Jr., a 20 year old from Ohio that allegedly drove his car into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia appears to have been a die-hard Nazi. In a deliberate act that killed one and injured at least 19 other people, Fields mowed down people, crashed into another car, and then backed up and ran over other people.

He is reported to be an avid supporter of the ideals of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. This has led to many in the media classifying him as an ultra-conservative or right winger. In fact, some others point out the Nazis were not on the right, but emerged from the National Socialist movement in Germany that was based on left wing political philosophy. Either way, they have always espoused violence.

Marco Rubio Receives Death Threat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5412-Marco-Rubio-Receives-Death-Threat Senator Marco Rubio (R. Fl) has been protected by a strong security detail since an order to have him killed was apparently issued by a powerful official in Venezuela. Rubio has been a long-time critic of the Maduro government. The threat was made by Diosdado Cabello, the former head of the military, who has long publically been angry with Rubio.

Cabello is also believed to be heavily involved in the illegal drug trade. While there are no specifics on how an attempt would be made, U.S. intelligence agencies and law enforcement are taking the threats seriously even as the investigation is ongoing.

Leftist Group Blames NRA for Violence in Charlottesville http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5411-Leftist-Group-Blames-NRA-for-Violence-in-Charlottesville The anti-Second Amendment radical Shannon Watts, who is the founder and leader of Moms Demand Action came forward to immediately blame the National Rifle Association for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. While it is true that some people were openly carrying firearms, which is allowed under Virginia’s open carry law, there is no claim that any of the weapons were fired or pointed at anyone.

Many of the injuries were caused by clubs, fists, tear gas, pepper spray, and unfortunately other injuries and one death were caused by a lunatic driving a car. Watts is known for using tragedies to push her political message and blaming the NRA for everything.

Leftists Working to Purge Moderates from Democrat Party http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5410-Leftists-Working-to-Purge-Moderates-from-Democrat-Party In a fiery speech to a far left group, Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren essentially said that there is no longer room in the Democrat Party for anyone who is not solidly behind the socialist agenda that she and Bernie Sanders are pushing. She is widely believed to be preparing to run for President in 2020. Without mentioning him by name she attacked initiatives pushed by President Bill Clinton for welfare reform and crime prevention.

Her speech was along the lines of recent calls by liberal Democrats for the party not to support so-called moderate candidates who are not pro-abortion and don’t support socialized medicine, among other things.

Trump Signs Veteran Bill http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5409-Trump-Signs-Veteran-Bill President Donald Trump has fulfilled a campaign promise to veterans by signing legislation for continued funding for the “Choice” program. This is a program established in response to numerous deaths of veterans who died while waiting for treatment at Veterans Affairs facilities. The program allows veterans to get treatment from local, non-VA doctors if certain conditions are met such as the veteran living over 40 miles from the nearest VA facility.

The bill provides $2.1 billion for this Veterans Choice program and another $1.8 for funding for other VA health programs. This has been hailed by leaders of various veteran groups.

Union Takes On Right To Work http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5408-Union-Takes-On-Right-To-Work Missouri’s pending right to work law is scheduled to go into effect at the end of August. However, the Missouri AFL-CIO is doing what it can to block the law’s implementation. The union has gathered 300,000 signatures to block the law and force the question to be decided by ballot measure in 2018. The union was able to gather three times the number of signatures needed. The union plans to deliver the petition to the Secretary of State’s office on August 18th. The union contracted with FiledWorks LLC, a Washington D.C. company to organize the gathering of signatures. Missouri Rising, a labor watchdog company said, “This phony petition drive is funded by Big Labor and is forced to rely on out-of-state interests because Missourians have made it clear that they want laws that don't restrict the freedoms of the private sector.” If the petition to block the law is unsuccessful, the law will go into effect on August 28th.

Mayhem in Charlottesville http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5407-Mayhem-in-Charlottesville Friday night in Charlottesville, Virginia white nationalists held a torchlight rally on the grounds of the University of Virginia. Counter protesters came out as marchers neared a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus. Fights broke out between marchers and protesters. Police declared the assembly unlawful. The mayor of Charlottesville called the march a “cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance.” On Saturday, marchers held a “Unite the Right” rally. Alt-right and ethnographic-nationalists planned to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Before the rally could begin, police declared the gathering an “unlawful assembly.” Police began breaking up the crowds and directing people to leave. As crowds were dispersing, the driver of a Dodge Challenger drove into a crowd of people going 40 miles per hour. The driver hit the back of another vehicle. The driver put the Challenger in reverse and left the crime scene. One person died in the attack and 19 were injured. The driver was later found and arrested. James Alex Fields Jr. was booked on charges of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of hit and run.

Canadian Minister Released From North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5406-Canadian-Minister-Released-From-North-Korea A Canadian pastor returned to Canada last week. He had been imprisoned in North Korea for two years in a prison camp. He was convicted of unstated “crimes against the state.” His original sentence was death. It was later changed to life imprisonment. During his imprisonment, he had to do hard physical labor. He dug holes in the ground that measured three feet deep and three feet in diameter. He broke call into little pieces and endured solitary confinement. During the winter while the ground was frozen, it would take him two days to finish one hole. He suffered frostbite and chronic sickness. During his imprisonment he “prayed without ceasing.” He was able to read the Bible in English and Korean five times. Canadian and Swedish diplomats worked on his behalf to secure his release. North Korea granted him “sick bail” in recognition that he would die because of the conditions he was enduring.

No Indication Of War http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5405-No-Indication-Of-War After a week of President Trump raising tensions over North Korea, the CIA Director and National Security Advisor were hitting the Sunday news shows to give the latest on North Korea. CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, appeared on “Fox News Sunday.” He assured his host that there was no indication that war would break out anytime soon with North Korea. “I’ve heard folks talking about that we’re on the cusp of a nuclear war. I’ve seen no intelligence that would indicate that we’re in that place today,” said Pompeo. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said, “we’re not closer to war than a week ago, but we are closer to war than we were a decade ago." Supporting the president’s tweet that America is “locked and loaded,” McMaster said, "the United States military is locked and loaded everyday." The North Korean situation ”demands a concerted effort by the United States, but with our allies and with all responsible nations.” "And this is what you've seen the president do is bring together all nations,” said McMaster.

Muslim Woman Awarded $85,000 http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5404-Muslim-Woman-Awarded-$85,000 A Muslim woman was awarded $85,000 after Long Beach police forcibly removed her hijab during her arrest in 2015. Police arrested Kirsty Powel after they discovered she had three outstanding warrants. Two of the warrants were for her sister who falsely used her name. The remaining warrant was for a petty theft charge in 2002. During the arrest, Powel asked that a female officer come to the scene because “physical contact must be done by a woman.” Police officers refused to comply with the request. She refused to remove her hijab, saying that it was her “legal right” to wear it. During her booking into the jail, police removed the hijab. Her lawsuit said, “She was held in the jail overnight, forced to sit in a cell feeling distraught, vulnerable and naked without her headscarf to everyone that passed.” Long Beach police changed its policies because of the suit. Now a female religious head covering can be removed “when necessary” for the safety of the officer. Afterwards, the head covering would be returned to the inmate.

No Word On National Reciprocity http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5403-No-Word-On-National-Reciprocity Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell have stayed quiet on National Reciprocity. Legislation was introduced January 3, 2017 in to the House by Rep. Richard Hudson. A similar bill was introduced into the Senate by Senator John Cornyn. The bill “would allow people with a state-issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry, as long as the permit holder follows the laws of that state.” During the campaign, candidate Trump was adamant that concealed carry permits be valid in all 50 states. He said that if a driver’s license is good in all 50 states then a concealed carry permit ought to be good in all states as well. National Reciprocity would force several restrictive states to change their gun control laws to make them more accommodating. Although Republicans control the House and Senate, leaders have been slow to implement any part of the Trump agenda.

Billionaire Forced to Reopen Beach http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5402-Billionaire-Forced-to-Reopen-Beach Vinod Khosla, a co-founder of Sun Microsystems, bought a 53-acre strip of coastal property in 2008. The previous owners had welcomed picnickers, surfers, smelt fishers, and others for a century, charging a daily access fee. In 2010, Khosla’s property manager closed public access to the road leading to the beach. The Surfrider Foundation filed suit alleging that Khosla was violating a part of the California state constitution that prevented anyone from excluding the right of way to costal waters without a coastal development permit. A Superior Court judge found that Khosla’s action “violated a long established ‘prescriptive easement.’” Khosla appealed to the District Court of Appeals and began to negotiate with the state for the public access. Candidate for governor and Coastal Commission member, Gavin Newsom, demanded that the State Lands Commission use eminent domain to seize all but four of Khosla’s 53-acres. An Appellate Court upheld the Superior Court’s holding. Reiterating that if Khosla wanted to restrict access, he needed a development permit. Khosla plans to appeal to California’s Supreme Court.

Soaring Healthcare Costs http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5401-Soaring-Healthcare-Costs Healthcare costs for large employers will rise approximately five percent in 2018. The cost will come out to $14,156 per employee. People forced to buy healthcare through the Obamacare exchange will see premiums increase by 25 percent or more in 2018. The traditional ways that employers have found to cut healthcare costs so that it does not affect the bottom line no longer work. Employers are now working on initiatives to affect the supply side of healthcare by looking at healthcare payment and delivery reforms. Large employers are looking at offering health centers either onsite or close by to reduce absenteeism. Other large employers are trying to reduce their costs by offering cost sharing or premium reductions if their employees get “more efficient care or manage their chronic conditions.” 90 percent of large employers will offer high deductible plans associated with Health Savings Accounts. People who spend their own money tend to be more frugal and shop for better deals.

Spieles of Harrisonburg, Virginia was sentenced to 100 days in a federal prison on Tuesday. Spieles will not have to pay a fine or fees due to his inability to pay. Spieles pled guilty to one-count of “knowingly transferring false Virginia Voter Registration Forms.” His job was to “register as many voters as possible and report them to Democratic headquarters in Harrisonburg.” Apparently not many people wanted to register as Democrats. An employee with the Registrar’s Office saw that one of the names submitted was the recently dead father of a local county judge. Upon deeper investigation, additional names of the dead were found. Other registrations had wrong information including wrong middle names, dates of birth and social security numbers. In all, Spieles created 18 fraudulent forms.

Obamacare is Destroying the Economy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5399-Obamacare-is-Destroying-the-Economy Amazon has been blamed for killing retail sales. Yet online sales comprise only 8.5 percent of total retail sales. At $80 billion, Amazon’s sales equate to 1.5 percent of retail sales in the U.S. Retail sales since 2016 are at $5.5 trillion. Of that figure, $3.3 trillion is healthcare. 60 percent of retail sales since 2016 are in some way healthcare related. With Obamacare’s increasing premiums and large deductibles, consumers have less money for discretionary spending. The failure to repeal Obamacare is strangling the economy. But Democrats and Republicans refuse to see the disaster they have created. They’d rather go after Amazon with anti-trust suits and destroy the company than accept that they are to blame for the under performing American economy.

Australia In The Hunt For Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5398-Australia-In-The-Hunt-For-Taxes The Australian government is either in dire need of tax revenue, or it is using the hunt for tax money as an excuse to enact all manner of authoritarian measures. The government is doubling taxes on foreigners who own property in Australia. If a foreigner buys a house undisclosed, it is a crime. The government is going into private schools to learn how parents are paying for school fees. Under the guise of ending the black economy, if Australians don’t keep a receipt when buying in cash, consumers will be stripped of their legal protections. The Black Economy Taskforce issued 35 recommendations to target consumers who pay in cash. This will have the effect of criminalizing cash and move all transactions into the digital realm so every transaction can be taxed.

Primary Challenge to Clair McCaskill http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5397-Primary-Challenge-to-Clair-McCaskill A radical Bernie Sanders supporter is planning to challenge Senator Claire McCaskill for the nomination to run for Senate. Angelica Earl hired Revolution Funding marketing firm to promote her campaign. This was the same marketing company that successfully raised millions of dollars to support Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Earl has staffed her campaign over the last five months and created the needed infrastructure to run a solid primary campaign. Central to Earl’s campaign will be the push for a single-payer, “health care for all” system. Earl blasted McCaskill for wanting a bipartisan agreement with Republicans on healthcare. For Earl, there is no middle ground. The Sanders’ wing of the party hopes to primary as many moderate Democrat incumbents as possible to either push incumbents into supporting single-payer or replacing them with more radical socialist leaning representatives.

Joe Manchin Bashed By Primary Opponent http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5396-Joe-Manchin-Bashed-By-Primary-Opponent Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia is being primaried by a fierce critic of the Democratic Party. At the liberal Netroots Nation conference she said, "My name is Paula Jean [Swearengin], I am a coal miners daughter and granddaughter, I am running for the U.S. Senate, and I'm mad as hell.” Decrying Manchin’s corporate donors, Swearengin said, “I will never sell my soul to the company store.” She said that Manchin was taking “crooked money.” The Bernie Sanders supporting Brand New Congress PAC endorsed Swearengin. She accused Manchin of opposing half of West Virginia’s Democratic party platform. Swearengin plans to ask for Bernie Sanders’ endorsement and is currently in talks with his staff. President Trump is rumored to be considering Manchin for Energy Secretary and putting Rick Perry at Homeland Security. Elevating Manchin to a cabinet position would allow the newly converted Republican governor to appoint a Republican to West Virginia’s senate seat. It would give Republicans one more Republican seat in the Senate.

Possible Deceptive Missile Tests http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5395-Possible-Deceptive-Missile-Tests Were North Korea’s ballistic missile tests all they were cracked up to be? Consensus amongst analysts is that the missiles launched in July show that North Korea can reach the United States and many major American cities. However one skeptic is urging caution. Physicist Theodore Postol says that a careful analysis of the tests were a “carefully choreographed deception by North Korea to create a false impression that the Hwasong-14 is a near-ICBM that poses a nuclear threat to the continental U.S." Postol said that the altitude achieved by the first missile was due to a “reduced payload” and the second missile test had even a smaller payload. Calculations show that the payloads were substantially less than what an actual nuclear warhead would weigh. Postol contends that the North Koreans fooled the world into believing that the the missile program was further ahead than it actually is.

Republican Primary in Alabama http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5394-Republican-Primary-in-Alabama Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice is leading a three way race for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Moore leads the race by 35 percent followed by Luther Strange, and Mel Brooks in third place. Despite President Trump’s endorsement of Luther Strange last week, Moore is receiving strong support from voters. Senator McConnell has thrown a lot of financial support towards Strange. But the president’s tweets disparaging McConnell may not be helping Luther Strange who is closely aligned with establishment Republicans. Roy Moore’s voters tend to be Trump voters. He is also the most anti-establishment candidate running. If the race comes down to Moore and Strange, Moore will likely attack Strange as being a part of the crony Republican establishment that is holding up the Trump agenda.

The legislation would prevent state authorities from assisting U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from enforcing federal law. Governor Brown said that he takes a “more nuanced and careful approach to dealing with what is a difficult problem.” The governor went on to say, “Because you do have people who are not here legally, they’ve committed crimes. They have no business in the United States in the manner in which they’ve come and conducted themselves subsequently.” The sanctuary bill has been amended to make exceptions for “serious and violent crimes.” But opponents of the legislation say that exceptions don’t cover enough offenses. In the past, Governor Brown has vetoed a similar bill. He said that his signing this current iteration “is not a fait accompli.”

Hug a Terrorist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5392-Hug-a-Terrorist Liberal politicians in Denmark’s second largest city think they have the key to tackle terrorism. Jihadists just need a hug along with kindness and forgiveness according to the scheme cooked up by local politicians and police. Danes who fight for the Islamic state are being offered apartments, education, jobs, and now hugs to encourage them to “rejoin society.” Superintendent Allan Aarslev said that jihadists are “isolated.” “These are men who have been to Syria and we don’t know what they have been doing down there and that’s the choice we have to make – between helping them and leaving them alone.” By integrating them into the local community, Aarslev hopes that the jihadists will no longer be a safety hazard. “From my point of view, it would be much more safe for the local community here to help these young men to have a normal life after they have returned than to leave them alone.” Danish politician Naser Khader thought that this acceptance sends the wrong message to terrorists. “Go out and do something criminal, be jihadis, you will get a lot of privilege from the society. That’s wrong in my opinion,” said Khader.

Democrat Mayor Fiddles as City Floods http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5391-Democrat-Mayor-Fiddles-as-City-Floods The city of New Orleans, Louisiana is below sea level and essentially sits in a large bowl that is surrounded by water on all sides including the Mississippi River and two huge lakes. The city is protected from flooding by a series of levees that were breached by the massive hurricane Katrina in 2005 that flooded much of the city and killed over a thousand people. The levees have been repaired, but the city remains vulnerable not only to hurricanes, but to torrential rains that are frequent.

The city has pumping stations that are designed to pump out rain water to prevent flooding. Recently some of those pumping stations have failed. Some city employees have come forward to blame the current Democrat mayor Mitch Landrieu of ignoring warnings that the pumping stations might fail. Apparently, Landrieu was so obsessed with being politically correct and removing confederate monuments in the city that the safety of his citizens was secondary.

China has constructed an artificial island in the area, and claims that makes the route part of Chinese territory.

The United States has joined other nations in disputing this and so the McCain sailed along the route in what is called freedom of navigation operations. The McCain sailed within twelve nautical miles of the artificial island. The Chinese claim this is a violation of international law, but the United States disputes that and intends to continue such operations.

For one thing, while threats are always being made by Kim Jong Un, none have ever been this specific.

South Korea has threatened a stern response to such actions, and Japan has said it will shoot down the missiles that would be fired over its territory. President Trump has vowed to retaliate and so no one is backing down from Kim.

He has pledged to “spend a lot of time, a lot of effort, and a lot of money on the opioid crisis”. In 2016 more people in the United States died from opioid use than were killed during the entire Vietnam War.

The death rate has reached an average of 142 people per day. The White House Commission that has been studying the problem made a number of recommendations to the President, including the declaring of a national emergency. Other recommendations include ways to increase the availability of treatment for opioid addiction.

Canadian Diplomat in Cuba also has Hearing Loss http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5385-Canadian-Diplomat-in-Cuba-also-has-Hearing-Loss Just one day after the U.S. State Department reported that two diplomats in the American embassy had been sent back home for treatment of hearing loss and other health problems, the Canadian government has confirmed that the same thing has happened to one of their diplomats. The State Department has stated that there is an ongoing investigation that apparently is looking into the possibility that the “acoustic” attacks could be the work of third parties connected to the embassies of Iran, North Korea, or even Russia.

The Cubans continue to deny any involvement and blaming the U.S. for not fully cooperating with the Cuban government in its investigation.

Venezuela Continues Crackdown on Opposition http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5384-Venezuela-Continues-Crackdown-on-Opposition Nicolas Maduro, dictatorial leader of Venezuela, is speeding up on his crackdown on anyone opposed to his regime. Many opposition mayors are under investigation by the government, several have been arrested, and at least two sentenced to jail. The legally elected National Assembly that is controlled by members of the opposition party has been dissolved, and replaced by the Constituent Assembly that is made up totally of Maduro supporters.

Anyone in the opposition parties that wants to run in any upcoming election must get a certificate of “good conduct” from the Constituent Assembly or be barred from running.

Out Gunned and Out Matched http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5383-Out-Gunned-and-Out-Matched The U.S. Army is short nearly $10 billion that it needs to begin modernizing its equipment. Several of its capabilities have been outmatched by Russia. It has had to rely on equipment purchased in the 1980s. Modernization has been slowed because of many issues including cancelled acquisition programs, an inability to decide on top modernization priorities, wars in the Middle East, and caps on spending imposed by Congress. In April 2016, the Army Chief of Staff said that the army had become “outranged and outgunned by many potential adversaries.” Russian missile defenses threaten U.S. and NATO air space in parts of Europe. Andrew Hunter of Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group said, “The Army has some critical needs to modernized because of the evolving threat, driven largely by Russia.”

Diplomatic Solution With North Korea Preferable http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5382-Diplomatic-Solution-With-North-Korea-Preferable Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that a diplomatic solution with North Korea is something that the United States wants. “However, right now … you can see the American effort is diplomatically-led, it has diplomatic traction, it is gaining diplomatic results, and I want to stay right there, right now,” he said.” He considered the unanimous vote to sanction North Korea was a positive step forward. He said that the American focus is on a diplomatic solution but that he is responsible for having military options. War with North Korea would be “catastrophic,” said Mattis. The North Korean military announced that it would have a plan developed to attack Guam by mid-August. In a press conference, President Trump said that maybe his “fire and fury” comment was not “tough enough.”

Snowflake Alert http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5381-Snowflake-Alert Social Justice Warriors have found a new target. They are going after the surname “Lynch.” A school district in Oregon voted to change the name of several of its schools that are named after the local wealthy Lynch family. The family donated land to the government so that government schools and public places could be built. Sharlene Guard, chair of the school board, said, “We have children of color and other cultures and we want to make sure that they are able to cross the threshold of those three schools and be comfortable in their surroundings.” One person at the meeting said, "This proposal has been an embarrassment to the staff and the community as a whole.”

Trump Says He Won’t Fire Mueller http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5380-Trump-Says-He-Won’t-Fire-Mueller President Trump said that does not have plans to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. "I haven't given it any thought. I've been reading about it from you people, you say I'm going to dismiss him. No, I'm not dismissing anybody," the president said. He added that he wanted the House and Senate to issue their reports to the public. The Senate is working on a bi-partisan bill that would forbid President Trump from firing the special counsel. The legislation stems from newspaper reports that reported Trump was seeking to dismiss the special counsel so that the Russia investigation would be prevented. In the past the president said that if the investigation crossed the line into investigating the Trump organization it would have gone too far.

American Diplomats in Cuba Injured http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5379-American-Diplomats-in-Cuba-Injured Committees in the House and Senate are looking into reports of incidents that diplomats in Cuba became ill and suffered hearing loss. American diplomats returned to the U.S. to receive treatment. Canadian diplomats also lost hearing and were treated in Canada. Speculation is that a covert sonic device were responsible for the issues. The incidents occurred in 2016 during the Obama Administration. The committees are trying to understand why the Obama and Trump Administrations stayed silent. President Trump expelled two Cuban diplomats from the Cuban embassy in May in response to actions taken against American diplomats in Cuba. There is an active investigation that is ongoing to understand what happened.

Minimum Wage Hike Would Kill Jobs http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5378-Minimum-Wage-Hike-Would-Kill-Jobs A $15 an hour minimum wage would devastate a Maryland county. An estimated 47,000 jobs would be lost over the next five years. The study found that residents in the county would lose $396.5 million in income loss. Businesses would lay off workers, cut hours and benefits, and stop opening new locations. Montgomery County Executive Isiah Legget said, “We can’t minimize some of the impacts outlined here. Even if it’s not 47,000 jobs lost, even if it’s half that, those are some startling numbers. You can’t discount ­it all.” Another council member called the study “nonsense.” Marc Elrich did not think it possible to predict how increasing the minimum wage would impact businesses and jobs. Elrich discounted the study because he thought businesses would respond negatively.

McCain To Push For More Troops and Deeper Commitment to Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5377-McCain-To-Push-For-More-Troops-and-Deeper-Commitment-to-Afghanistan President Trump rejected his National Security Advisor’s plan to dive deeper into Afghanistan for the next four years. Undeterred, Senator McCain plans to take up the cause. He will push for more troops and “long-term, open-ended” involvement in Afghanistan when he returns to the Senate next month. “[W]e must face facts: We are losing in Afghanistan and time is of the essence if we intend to turn the tide,” said the senator. McCain’s plan also wants to do away with the constraining rules of engagement that make it considerably difficult to carry out missions. McCain’s plan would “deny, disrupt, degrade, and destroy the ability of terrorist groups to conduct attacks against the United States, its allies, or its core interests.” Rather than watching cancer eat away his brain and any common sense for the next 18 months, perhaps Senator McCain should resign his seat, volunteer for active duty in Afghanistan and go out in a hail of bullets and patriotic glory.

UC Berkeley Chancellor Will Be Paid for Doing Nothing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5376-UC-Berkeley-Chancellor-Will-Be-Paid-for-Doing-Nothing The former chancellor of UC Berkeley, Nicholas Dirks, stepped down over the summer. As he transitions out of his administrative role, he will receive 82 percent of his salary, or $434,000 under an approved UC policy. As chancellor, Dirks poorly handled several sexual harassment scandals, riots on campus, and a large $150 million budget deficit. His failure to deal decisively with the sexual harassment cases was his undoing. Many of those accused continued in their positions without disciplinary actions. University of California policy allows an administrator to collect up to 100% of their salary for a year. The former chancellor will not have to do anything to earn the money.

The former Honeywell employee had the tracking technology. Federal agents, posing as buyers of the technology, arrested Robert Miller on federal fraud charges. Miller demonstrated the technology in a live demonstration to undercover agents. The technology would have give drug cartels a huge advantage over American law enforcement. Cartels would have been able to track law enforcement aircraft and boats. The technology is used by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

The officer left the office and promptly made his case on social media. “I will be looking for a new ENT, just asked to leave Dr. Burkes office because I am wearing my gun, badge, and ID,” Conroe Police Chief Philip Dupuis said. He added, “Officers should not be required to disarm or change out of their uniform while seeing their doctors or other professionals.” He conceded that it is the right of a private business to determine whom they serve. But that it was his right not to patronize such a business. A spokesman for the business apologized. “This was a mistake by an employee and not our policy. We have “already communicated to all of the supervisors in all of the locations how this SHOULD have been handled.” The police chief said that he hoped the doctor’s office “respond appropriately and make a very public and clear statement that officers will not be treated this way in the future.”

Millions of Americans Pay Fines Instead of Going on Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5373-Millions-of-Americans-Pay-Fines-Instead-of-Going-on-Obamacare One of the major criticisms of the failed Republican plans to repeal and replace Obamacare came as a result of predictions by the Congressional Budget Office that millions of Americans would lose their insurance of the plans were adopted. The figures from this supposedly non-partisan source were questionable at best since they kept changing and the CBO predictions about the original Obamacare had been completely wrong.

The fact is that the highly unpopular mandate under Obamacare that requires Americans to get health insurance or pay a fine has resulted in 6.5 million Americans paying the fine. The projected number of Americans that would supposedly lose their insurance under the Republican plan includes those people plus an estimated 10 million more people who would choose not to have insurance at all.

Washington Post Gets Hysterical Over Trump having Nuclear Codes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5372-Washington-Post-Gets-Hysterical-Over-Trump-having-Nuclear-Codes Once again the Washington Post has shown that it is incapable of being objective about anything President Donald Trump does or says. The latest proof of this is a hysterical piece about the danger of Trump controlling the nuclear codes that would have to be used to launch a nuclear attack. The paper brings up the ads run by Hillary Clinton during her disastrous campaign for the presidency when she tried to convince the American people that Trump was too erratic and unstable to have the nuclear codes.

The claim didn’t work and she still lost the election, but the Washington Post won’t let go. The fact is that Trump has not directly threatened a nuclear attack on anyone. His statement about fire and fury could easily have been referring to the awesome conventional weapons power that the United States could use on North Korea.

Of course, the sources for the story are unnamed and Ali has said he will not release the names.

In the meantime, Bolling has been suspended by Fox News while an investigation takes place. However, it is unclear how the allegations can be proven if no one comes forward to testify that they were actually sexually harassed. Bolling contends that if the photos even exist, they were sent by someone else using his name.

The injuries are physical illnesses including possible permanent loss of hearings. Two employees had to be flown back to the United States for treatment.

The FBI is investigating the incidents that may have occurred over a long period of time following Obama’s reopening of the embassy. The Cuban government claims to be cooperating in the investigation and also claims to have no knowledge of the possible cause.

North Korea again Threatens Guam http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5369-North-Korea-again-Threatens-Guam North Korea has refused to back down even after President Trump issued his stern warning that was followed by a similar warning from Secretary of Defense James Mattis. It has again warned of an attack on Guam although it seems to be a threat to fire missiles that will land near Guam, not actually on the island itself. It appears that the regime may be backing down despite the bluster.

The liberal news media is not looking at it that way, but is instead claiming that Trump’s touting of America’s military might and nuclear capabilities somehow provoked Kim Jong Un and his government into making threats again the U.S. Of course the same types of threats were made during the Obama administration, but the media never suggested they were his fault.

This meeting occurred just prior to the election while Hillary Clinton was under investigation by the FBI.

While the meeting was supposed to have occurred in secret, it was discovered by a local reporter. That is when the story broke and attorneys in the Justice Department edited the responses to media inquiries and then sent emails to the FBI directing the agency about how the story should be covered and what talking points to use. Around that time Lynch also told James Comey to refer to the Clinton probe as a “matter” instead of an investigation.

Democrats say that this is provocative and dangerous, and the President should take a more diplomatic approach.

On the other hand, Trump supporters point out that the efforts of the last three administrations to be diplomatic with the communist leaders in the North have accomplished nothing, and the statement by Trump may be the only thing that Kim Jong Un will understand.

In the warning he emphasized that the United States and its allies have the the capability to defend themselves from attack. Mattis exhorted Kim Jong Un to listen to the UN’s Security Council’s “unified voice” and the governments of the world who agree that North Korea “poses a threat to global security and stability.” Mattis said that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea “must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons. The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.” James Mattis is known as someone with “significant credibility in the business of breaking things and killing people.” The warning indicates that military options are on the table if North Korea continues on its current trajectory. Will China now pressure North Korea to stand down?

He was convicted of not suppressing protestors. Early in August, two of the country’s most visible opposition leaders were taken from their homes where they’d lived under house arrest for a number of years.

Tillerson defended Trump’s rhetoric as language that the North Korean leadership would understand since they don’t “seem to understand diplomatic language.” “I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the U.S. has unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies, and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part,” Tillerson concluded.

If not, Democrats are vowing to shutter the government. The White House wants a down payment on construction of the wall in the fiscal 2018 budget. So, White House officials are looking for ways to compromise with Democrats. A plan to increase domestic spending is being discussed. Now that any movement on the repeal of Obamacare is dead for the time being, the White House has identified border wall funding as an important win. The White House is not waiting for last minute gamesmanship. It is trying to hammer out an agreement while there is significant time left in the current fiscal year. If Democrats can force the president to give up on constructing the border wall, they will then gleefully point out that he broke one of his major campaign promises.

Manafort House Raided http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5361-Manafort-House-Raided News broke on Wednesday that the FBI executed a search warrant at the house of former Trump Campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The raid took place in July. Speculation into the possible meaning of the raid was rampant. A former Justice Department prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg said that the raid was a “big deal.” “Prosecutors do not take aggressive steps like this with subjects who the government feels are being open and cooperative. And they also do not do this to ‘send a message.’ They do it because they think there is evidence to be found and that if they do not act aggressively, it could be destroyed.” Samuel Buell, a former federal prosecutor, said the search warrant indicated Special Counsel Mueller thought Manafort might not comply with document requests or a subpoena. Defense attorney William Jeffress, thought the FBI affidavit, clearing the way for the search warrant, might be “dynamite.” He thought it would detail what the government expects to accomplish in the investigation. Manafort’s attorney said that his client had been cooperative with congressional probes.

He is now looking to take down Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona. Mercer is donating $300,000 to a super PAC that is backing primary challenger Kelli Ward. Senator Flake recently released a book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” Within the book, Flake argues that the Republican party is responsible for the rise of Donald Trump. The senator did not endorse Trump during the campaign and urged Trump to withdraw after the Access Hollywood tapes were released. As well, he refused to attend the Republican nominating convention. At one point during the campaign, Trump said that he might spend $10 million of his own money to help unseat Flake. Jeff Flake is considered to be one of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for re-election in 2018. President Trump is following the primary closely.

Several high profile Democrat senators have given their support to Sanders’ single payer legislation. A majority of House Democrats have signed on to Rep. John Conyers’ single-payer bill. But Democrats are worried that Sanders’ supporters will launch primary challenges to Democratic moderates in 2018.

Trial for Democratic Senator to Proceed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5358-Trial-for-Democratic-Senator-to-Proceed Democrat Senator Bob Menendez will have to go to trial in September. A federal judge rejected a motion to dismiss the charges on Wednesday. The motion to dismiss argued that no “official acts” were done by Senator Menendez. But the judge said that a determination of that question will have to be made during trial. It cannot be determined until after the government has presented its evidence at trial. The senator received campaign contributions, flights on private jets, and luxury vacations from Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor. Menendez allegedly asked government officials to intervene on behalf of Melgen with billing issues for Medicare and Medicaid. Melgen was found guilty of Medicare fraud in April. Melgen gave over $750,000 to Menendez and committees tied to him. A guilty verdict might pave the way for outgoing Governor Chris Christie to appoint a Republican to the Senate seat.

Government Screw-Up Causes Innocent Man to Lose Guns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5357--Government-Screw-Up-Causes-Innocent-Man-to-Lose-Guns A New York man had his guns confiscated because of a screw-up that labeled him as mentally ill. The 70-year old Don Hall lost four long guns and two handguns. Nobody was able to tell him what he had supposedly done wrong or how to correct it. “I was guilty until I could prove myself innocent,” said Hall. On the advice of his attorney, Hall began contacting hospitals asking them to certify that he had not been treated for mental health conditions. One hospital had a record of someone with the same name but a slightly different Social Security number. Hall and his attorney were able to convince a county judge that it was a case of mistaken identity. The judge ordered that Hall’s guns be returned to him. He had to spend a lot of time and money to defend his innocence. None of the entities or hospitals have offered to reimburse him for the cost of proving his innocence.

U.S. Cities Preparing for Nuclear War http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5356-U.S.-Cities-Preparing-for-Nuclear-War In actions reminiscent of the cold war era with the former Soviet Union, American cities and states are preparing for the possibility of a nuclear strike by North Korea. Shelters that have been unused for years are being restocked with supplies, and citizens and even school children are being given instructions about what to do in case of an attack. Evacuation plans are also being readied.

The threat is real, particularly for the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Washington and California. For example, in the case of a nuclear tipped ICBM launch from North Korea the state of Hawaii would only have an 8 to 12 minute warning and California just a few minutes more. If North Korea launches missiles from a submarine near these locations there would be virtually no warning.

Washington Post Again Publishes Confidential Information http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5355-Washington-Post-Again-Publishes-Confidential-Information Once again the Washington Post has published confidential information what may have put the national security of the United States and the lives of Americans in danger. This time it was the confidential information in an intelligence report that found that North Korea had succeeded in miniaturizing a nuclear weapon so it would fit in to a missile capsule.

By releasing this information the North Koreans now know what we have discovered and that limits our options to respond. Then WAPO responded to Trump’s warning to Kim Jong Un that a threat to America would be met with “fire and fury” by criticizing Trump.

Major Fentanyl Bust in New York City http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5354-Major-Fentanyl-Bust-in-New-York-City Federal agents have announced a major drug raid in the Upper West Side of New York City. Agents seized 20 pounds of fentanyl and heroin worth an estimated $3 million on the open market. Fentanyl is an opioid that in its purest form is deadly, and agents for the Drug Enforcement Agency said this much of it, if mishandled, could kill half the population of New York City.

Four people were arrested during the raid and were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy. This is the latest move in the growing war on dangerous opioids that are killing more people every day.

Obamacare Implosion Continues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5353-Obamacare-Implosion-Continues The inevitable collapse of Obamacare is accelerating just as three Republican Senators saved what is left of it by voting against a last ditch effort to repeal and replace it. The latest state to be hard hit is Nevada where many of the rural counties have now learned that they will have no options at all next year for insurance from the Obamacare exchange.

The final blow in Nevada came when the last major insurer, Anthem announced it is pulling out of the market. It is also severely cutting back its presence in Georgia and has dropped out of the exchange markets in Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and much of California.

Concern Grows over Possible EMP Attack http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5352-Concern-Grows-over-Possible-EMP-Attack With North Korea now apparently capable of putting nuclear warheads on its ICBMs and possibly other missiles, concern is growing in the United States military about the possibility of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack by the North Koreans. Such an attack does not require the nuclear weapon to make a direct hit on a specific target, but instead just requires a detonation high above the target.

Such a detonation would not only kill people on the ground, but would knock out power grids, cell phone towers and virtually all forms of communication. Banks would be down as would gas stations, hospitals, etc. This would not be for just a few weeks or even months, but for years. The devastation would be incredible.

Is North Korea Preparing for War? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5351-Is-North-Korea-Preparing-for-War? In yet another ominous development on the Korean Peninsula U.S. intelligence has confirmed that the rogue government of North Kores has succeeded in miniaturizing a nuclear weapon to the point that it can be put on top of an ICBM. It has already been determined that the Kim Jong Un regime has tested missiles that are capable of reaching at least the west coast of the United States.

There is also concern that this type of nuclear device can also be mounted on smaller missiles that can be fired from submarines which could get very close to our coast.

Trump’s Expectations Are Too High http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5350-Trump’s-Expectations-Are-Too-High Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the president’s expectations for Congress are too high. McConnell said that Trump was “new” and had “excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.” Legislative inexperience and the setting of artificial deadlines on healthcare and tax reform make it appear that Congress is dysfunctional. “A Congress goes on for two years. And part of the reason I think that this storyline is that we haven’t done much is because in part the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point.” McConnell said that a better measure should be to judge Congress when the current Congress finishes in early 2019. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the House has been very productive. It has passed at least 270 bills. But the Senate has been slow to act on any of them. The U.S. Senate has been called the world’s most deliberative body. Senator Schumer likes to tell the story that the Senate is the “cooling saucer” where the hype and enthusiasm of the House is tempered.

Poland Welcomes Immigrants From Europe http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5349-Poland-Welcomes-Immigrants-From-Europe Poland’s President is in a fight with the European Union. He refuses to accept migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. The president pointed out that “Poland is open for migration.” In 2016 the country issued 1,267,000 visas for Ukrainians. And half of those visas were work permits. The Polish president’s remarks were similar to those of President Zeman of the Czech Republic. Zeman said that he has “nothing against immigrants who come here to work and who have similar language and similar culture like ours.” “I do not want immigrants who come from other cultures who come for social benefits, not because of work. Muslims should remain in the countries where they live [and] they should work in them, and they should not go to Europe, where they do not want to work.” Hungary’s president Orbán is open to resettling the “true refugees” of Western Europe. “Germans, Dutch, French and Italians, terrified politicians and journalists who here in Hungary want to find the Europe they have lost in their homelands,” Orbán said.

McCain Critical of Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5348-McCain-Critical-of-Trump President Trump increased the volume of his rhetoric against North Korea on Tuesday after the Washington Post reported that North Korea had developed miniaturized nuclear warheads for its intercontinental ballistic missiles. President Trump promised to meet any attack “with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” The ailing Senator McCain went on an Arizona radio station so criticize President Trump for his tough talk. “I take exception to the president’s comments because you got to be sure you can do what you say you’re going to do,” McCain said. “In other words the old ‘walk softly but carry a big stick’ — Teddy Roosevelt’s saying, which I think is something that should have applied — because all it’s going to do is bring us closer to some kind of serious confrontation.” “The great leaders I’ve seen, they don’t threaten unless they are ready to act and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act,” he said. McCain encouraged the president to work with China’s president to crack down on North Korea. Senator McCain views China as the key to gaining North Korea’s cooperation.

Preach It Hillary! http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5347-Preach-It-Hillary! When politically expedient, Hillary Clinton has on occasion referenced her distant Methodist past. But imagine Hillary Clinton hauling herself into a pulpit every Sunday morning to deliver a sermon. Hillary’s pastor, Bill Shillady, said that Hillary is thinking about doing just that. Apparently Hillary has thought “all the time” about becoming a minister. But she’s been loathe to have anyone write about her desire lest she be seen as “too pious.” Shillady says, “Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor.” Shillady is the author of an upcoming book of devotions. 365 of the 600 devotions were written specifically for Hillary Clinton. Readers are promised “[F]irst time post-election readers will have a chance to hear directly from her about her faith during this time.”

Debt Ceiling Politics http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5346-Debt-Ceiling-Politics The debt ceiling will need to be lifted in September as the Treasury’s wiggle room and accounting tricks will run out. President Trump wants a “clean,” no strings attached increase in the debt ceiling. Democrats and Republicans plan throw up roadblocks to win concessions for supporting the increase. Conservatives insist that spending reforms be implemented if leaders want their support. The Republican Study Committee and the House Freedom Caucus want spending cuts. Alternatively, conservatives might be willing to drop their demands if the Treasury instead is permitted to sell off assets like property and mortgage-backed securities. If Congressional leaders are to deliver a “clean” increase, they will need the support of Democrats. Democrats are insisting that any tax reform be accompanied by significant concessions. Senator Schumer says that Democrats will refuse to vote for the increase unless Republicans abandon tax cuts that would add to the deficit. If the past is prologue, then high stakes political theater will be coming soon to televisions screens around the country.

David Binkle was once invited to the White House to participate in an event with Michelle Obama to encourage students to eat healthful foods. Binkle allegedly put $65,000 of government school lunch program funds into his culinary consulting company and his personal bank account. On the White House, “Let’s Move” website, Binkle complained about discrepancies between the quality of life between LA’s millionaire elites and the students whom he provided meals. Apparently Binkle was attempting to rectify that inequality in his own life by using taxpayer money to improve the quality of his business and bank account.

UAW Files Complaints After Workers Reject Union http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5344-UAW-Files-Complaints-After-Workers-Reject-Union Workers at a Nissan factory in Mississippi rejected an attempt to unionize their plant. The vote was 2,244 to 1,307 against unionizing. Right after losing the vote, the United Auto Workers union filed a large number of unfair labor practice complaints with the National Labor Relations Board. The complaints allege that “Nissan waged one of the most illegal and unethical anti-union campaigns” ever to dissuade workers from voting to join the UAW. A spokesman for Nissan said that the complaints “couldn’t be further from the truth” and that they were vague. The spokesman pointed out that the union failed to “name anyone by name” in its complaints. Nissan called on the UAW to “honor the results.” “The results spoke loud and clear on Friday. The vast majority of our employees have chosen to work directly with the company.”

The bank is accused of violating federal law because it denied loans to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Judge Chesney, a Clinton appointee, refused to dismiss the lawsuit. She “argued that the bank violated California civil rights law as well as federal laws prohibiting the denial of loans based on citizenship status.” Wells Fargo attorneys argued that they did not violate the Equal Credit Opportunity Act because the act says nothing about citizenship. Judge Chesney said that California law requires businesses “to grant equal contract rights to all persons” even if the persons are in the country illegally.

War of Words With North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5342-War-of-Words-With-North-Korea The Washington Post is reporting that North Korea can fit miniaturized warheads into its missiles. President Trump threatened to unleash “fire and fury” if North Korea launches a strike at the United States or its allies. In response, North Korea threatened to strike an American military base in Guam. The United States launched two B1B bombers on Monday. They flew across the Korean peninsula. Japanese and South Korean military aircraft also participated in the exercise. A North Korean statement said that the strategic bomber’s frequent flights over South Korea get on the nerves of North Korea. The statement said that the North Korean government is considering firing Hwasong-12 missiles towards U.S. military bases in Guam. Anderson Air Force Base has a anti-ballistic missile defense system installed which can shoot down incoming missiles in their reentry phase. The U.S. also has one inside of South Korea to deter North Korean aggression. With President Trump surrounding himself with generals, he will only get military answers. The president might be better off if he invites North Korea’s leader to Washington to talk.

Christian bakery shops have been sued because they would not make a wedding cake for same sex weddings. Christian florists have been sued because they would not provide flowers for same sex weddings. Yet because a Trump cake violates the rights or conscience of leftists it’s somehow okay. No business should be forced to provide their services for something that violates their conscience.

Pentagon Preparing to Strike ISIS in the Philippines http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5340-Pentagon-Preparing-to-Strike-ISIS-in-the-Philippines The growth of ISIS on some of the southern islands in the Philippines has been going on for several years and now has become a threat not only to the Philippines, but to other countries in the region. The Philippine military has launched a major campaign against ISIS that controls many towns mostly by imposing strict sharia law and terrorizing local populations.

Now, the Pentagon is preparing plans to launch air strikes against ISIS in support of the Philippine army. The strikes will use drones initially and be directed at known ISIS positions and strongholds. There is also a small force of American special operations personnel already on the ground in the islands.

The missiles are specifically designed to sink large naval vessels. This may just be a sign that North Korea is planning to defy the new sanctions with another missile test, however, there is concern that the unstable North Korean leader may actually try to attack naval vessels of the United States and its allies. If that happens, the U.S. will be forced to respond with an overwhelming attack on the North Korean military and government.

President Donald Trump Right on Voter Fraud http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5338-President-Donald-Trump-Right-on-Voter-Fraud Trump has been routinely vilified by the left wing media and liberal Democrats over his claim that there was massive voter fraud during the 2016 election. He was especially attacked for creating a commission to investigate voter fraud. Evidence of people being registered in more than one district or state has already been uncovered, as has evidence of non-citizens being registered in some states.

Now Judicial Watch has found that in the State of California there were more people registered to vote in eleven counties than there were adults of voting age. Ten of these counties went overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton including Los Angeles County and San Francisco. The percentages of registered voters varied from 102 % to 144% higher than the citizens of voting age depending on the county.

UN Says United States Cannot Withdraw from Climate Agreement http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5337-UN-Says-United-States-Cannot-Withdraw-from-Climate-Agreement When Barack Obama illegally signed the United Nations Climate Change treaty he assured everyone that the agreement was non-binding. In fact, that was his primary justification for refusing to submit the treaty to the Senate for ratification as required by the U.S. Constitution. It turns out that Obama failed to mention that he had signed away the right of the U.S. to withdraw from the treaty until November 2020.

President Trump was informed of this when he sent formal notice to the UN of our withdrawal. The United Nations pointed to the language and told Trump he can’t do it. However, since it can be argued that the treaty was never legally signed, the additional agreement can also be ignored.

SAF is particularly concerned with California’s refusal to honor concealed weapons permits issued by other states. This means that someone from Texas for example, who has a concealed weapons permit is subject to arrest and prosecution in California if they attempt to carry a firearm. SAF is one of the oldest and largest gun rights groups in the country.

The stock market continues to soar with record numbers consistently occurring. In addition, consumer spending in the United States is at its highest level in nine years.

On the jobs front 209,000 new jobs were created in July and the unemployment level is the lowest in 16 years. In the first six months of the Trump presidency one million new jobs have been created. These jobs are coming from a wide range of industries and wages are also increasing, although not as rapidly as was hoped. It is also important to note that many Americans who had given up are reentering the jobs market.

Under the H-1B visa program, workers can come into the United States and stay for up to six years. Many American citizens have lost their jobs as companies find it cheaper to higher foreign workers. Under the legislation, employers would have to make a good faith effort to recruit and hire American workers. American workers could not be replaced with H-1B visa holders. Foreign workers would have to be paid comparable wages. H-1B workers could not be outsourced to other companies. H-1B visas would be based on skills and wages. The visas would no longer be allocated by lottery. The legislation has the support of Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.

Instead Corbyn said, “What I condemn is the violence that’s been done by any side, by all sides, in all this. Violence is not going to solve the issue.” “I’m very sad at the lives that have been lost in Venezuela. The people who have died, either those on the streets or security forces that have been attacked by people on the street – all of those lives are terrible for the loss of them.” Four out of five Venezuelans live in poverty. Inflation is running as high as 700 percent. Food shortages are common within the country. Yet, Corbyn blamed the problems within Venezuela on the country’s reliance on oil. In the past Corbyn has praised Venezuela’s socialist government as a “‘better’ model for the west.” Corbyn had a documented friendship with former dictator Hugo Chavez and current dictator Maduro.

A series of screenshots taken by a Google employee show how Social Justice Warriors go after their fellow employees. “I keep a written blacklist of people whom I will never allow on or near my team, based on how they view and treat their coworkers. That blacklist got a little longer today,” said Collin Winter, a Google manager. If employees voices the wrong political ideas, their careers will be stalled. “I want those hostile voices to know: I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don’t care if you are perfect fit or technically excellent or whatever, I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision,” wrote former employee Adam Fletcher.

The author of an internal 10-page manifesto challenging the leftist groupthink rampant at the company was fired on Monday.

Luther Strange was picked by the former governor of Alabama to succeed Senator Jeff Sessions. He has the backing of Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell has raised and spent millions of dollars on behalf of Strange attacking Rep. Mo Brooks. Both Moore and Brooks are supportive of President Trump. Luther Stranger has not been vocal for his support of the president’s agenda. But he has been supportive of the Mitch McConnell/GOP agenda. Pollster John Couvillon said, “Despite his incumbency and up to $8 million dollars being spent on his behalf, Senator Luther Strange is struggling to connect with GOP primary voters in Alabama.” The top to finishers in the primary will face each other in a runoff in September.

At the Feeding Trough http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5328-At-the-Feeding-Trough It’s hard to think of Musk’s enterprises as real businesses. Like the federal government, Elon Musk has a spending problem. In the second quarter, Musk blew through $13 million dollars every day. He lost $1.2 billion in cash. His businesses have consumed $5 billion in government subsidies. To prod the sale of electric vehicles, the federal government is paying out a $7,500 rebate on the purchase price. The state of California is offering another taxpayer funded rebate of $2,500. The only area in his company that is profitable is the sale of zero-emission vehicle credits. Some states require a certain proportion of automaker’s sales be cars that have zero emissions. When a company cannot meet the quota, they buy zero-emission credits. Tesla usually has a surplus for sale. A company so dependent upon government money would likely collapse on itself in a free market. But when the government picks winners and losers everything gets distorted.

This is a witch hunt against me that is being carried forward by Obama holdovers in Attorney General Sessions’ Department of Justice.” Arpaio supported Trump early in the primaries. He issued a formal endorsement and even appeared with candidate Trump at campaign rallies. Accepting the endorsement, Trump said, “I have great respect for Sheriff Arpaio. We must restore law and order on the border and respect the men and women of our police forces. I thank him for his support of my policies and candidacy for president.” Arpaio’s attorneys will appeal the conviction. Arpaio is scheduled to be sentence October 5, 2017

Voter Dissatisfaction in House Districts http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5326-Voter-Dissatisfaction-in-House-Districts Speaker Paul Ryan is getting an ear full in his home district in Wisconsin. His voters are asking why Republicans are not getting anything done. “We have a majority in the House and Senate and it feels like nothing’s getting done,” said James Hulsey. “Everybody that voted Republican is getting very frustrated,” Republican Keith Ketzler said. If Republicans can’t or won’t deliver on the Trump agenda, House Republicans risk losing their majority status. Democrats have to win only 24 seats to regain control. Ryan is attempting to focus voters attention on the Foxconn deal that will see an investment of $10 billion and could employ as many as 13,000 people. Speaker Ryan faces primary challengers and likely a challenge by Democrats.

NYPD Boycots Dunkin’ Donuts http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5325-NYPD-Boycots-Dunkin’-Donuts Last week an employee at a Dunkin’ Donuts shop in New York refused service to two cops, saying, “I don’t serve cops.” Now the New York Police Department is boycotting all Dunkin’ Donuts stores in New York City. Michael Palladino, president of a police labor union, said what the employee did was “disgraceful and it should not go unattended.” The union president also pointed out that Mayor de Blasio had created a hostile atmosphere towards police in New York City. Dunkin’ Donuts has apologized personally to the officers. Yet the boycott is underway.

The Troubles and Politics of the Rich http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5324-The-Troubles-and-Politics-of-the-Rich Some rich residents in an exclusive San Francisco neighborhood lost their private street and sidewalks that they had owned since 1905. The City of San Francisco had sent a $14 tax bill for three decades to the wrong address. The city’s bill was never paid. Finally the city auctioned the property to recover the $994 in unpaid taxes, penalties, and interest. The property sold at auction for $90,000. The new owners are now looking to cash in. There are 120 parking spaces on the street that could be rented out. The residents have asked the Board of Supervisors to rescind the sale. This will be explored at a meeting in October. In addition to suing the city, the homeowners association is seeking an injunction against the couple who bought the street to prevent them from selling to anyone.

Free Health Care in Canada is a Myth http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5323-Free-Health-Care-in-Canada-is-a-Myth As liberal Democrats like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and even Chuck Schumer increase their calls for the United States to adopt a single payer health care system, also known as socialist medicine, they cite the “successes” of the Canadian system. They are hiding the fact that the Canadian system is collapsing. It is not free health care, in fact with the increased taxes, Canadians are paying over $1.000 per month for their “free” care.

They are also hiding the fact that the wait times for medical procedures can be as long as six months. This caused over 63,000 Canadians to leave Canada in 2016 to seek medical care elsewhere, usually in the U.S. Yet, this ailing system is what liberals want us to adopt in this country.

USS Nimitz Strike Group Moves into Persian Gulf http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5322-USS-Nimitz-Strike-Group-Moves-into-Persian-Gulf In another move proving his commitment to finish off ISIS and other terrorist groups President Donald Trump has sent the powerful aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and its strike group into the Persian Gulf. The carrier is accompanied by a guided missile cruiser and four destroyers.

This force provides a great deal of additional fire power to strike at ISIS in both Iraq and Syria. The Nimitz strike force is commanded by Rear Admiral Bill Byrne who says that for his force it is “game on” He said his pilots and crews are ready for action and they launched their first strike on July 31st. It will be the first of many designed not only to destroy terrorists, but also to reassure our allies of the commitment of the United States to victory in the Middle East.

The new White House Chief of Staff reminded everyone that they are employed by the President and that they need to support him and his agenda. However, he also told them that their first loyalty was to their country, then the President, and that their own interests were last.

He also indicated that he was going to be in control of who sees the President and when. He also cautioned them that he would not tolerate any leaks or mishandling of classified information. He has also apparently convinced Trump to consult with him before sending out tweets on certain issues.

Chicago Plans Suit to Protect its Illegal Population http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5319-Chicago-Plans-Suit-to-Protect-its-Illegal-Population Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of the crime ridden city of Chicago has declared he will sue the Trump administration so that Chicago can continue to be a sanctuary city for illegal alien, even those who have committed other crimes in his city. At issue is the plan of the federal government to withhold certain federal grant money from cities like Chicago and Los Angeles unless they start cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Emanuel says that in his city the money is to be used to upgrade police vehicles. That would seem to be something important in a city with one of the highest murder rate in the world, but for the leftist democrat mayor the protection of illegals appears to be his first priority.

Venezuela Citizens Calling Openly for Rebellion http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5318-Venezuela-Citizens-Calling-Openly-for-Rebellion In a video featuring a former Venezuela National Guard officer standing in front of a group of about 20 armed men there is an open call made by them for all out rebellion against the socialist government of Nicolas Maduro. This follows the election of the so-called Constituent Assembly; a group of people hand-picked by the dictator to change the constitution and give him complete authority and control over the country.

The call seems to have been heeded by some people since a military base was attacked over the weekend and while the government says the attack was repelled, it admits some weapons were stolen by the attackers. Since the election, which most citizens boycotted, violence has erupted at multiple locations.

Los Angeles Pays $1.3 billion to Illegals in Two Years http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5317-Los-Angeles-Pays-$1.3-billion-to-Illegals-in-Two-Years Illegal aliens flock to sanctuary cities to be protected by local authorities from arrest and deportation by federal agencies. However, there is another major reason they head to sanctuary cities like Los Angeles; they get lots of free stuff at American taxpayer expense. According to data obtained from the Los Angeles Department of Public Social Services the county paid out $1.3 billion in welfare benefits to illegal immigrant families in 2015 through 2016.

These benefits include food stamps and other welfare payments and 64,000 families received such benefits in 2016. However, due to a crackdown on illegal immigration by the Trump administration the numbers seem to be falling so far this year.

Entrenched Bureaucrats Trying to Undermine Trump Agenda http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5316-Entrenched-Bureaucrats-Trying-to-Undermine-Trump-Agenda When Donald Trump ran for president and promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington he was obviously not aware of how deep the swamp was and how many alligators and snakes inhabit it. Entrenched bureaucrats in federal agencies who are holdovers from the Obama administration are actively trying to undermine the President’s agenda in a number of different ways. This is true even though they are technically employees of the President.

Some of them are just openly critical of Trump and his agenda, while others are violating their oath of office and federal law by leaking information to the liberal news media. Some of this information is classified and threatens our national security. They are being aided by the efforts in the Democrats in the Senate to delay votes on Trump appointees.

Both Russia and China voted for the resolution that limits some key exports from the rogue nation including coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore, and seafood. If successfully enforced it could slash North Korea $3 billion export in income by one third.

The resolution also bans countries from engaging in new joint ventures with North Korea, or increasing investments in existing ventures. The major question remaining is will countries like China comply with the resolution they voted for.

11 California Counties Have More People Registered than Live There. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5313--11-California-Counties-Have-More-People-Registered-than-Live-There. Right after being inaugurated, President Trump complained about millions of illegal votes. He attributed those votes as the reason why he lost the popular vote. According to Judicial Watch, the Election Integrity Project found that there are 11 California counties with more registered voters on the rolls than who actually live in the county. L.A. County’s error rate is estimated to around 144%. Judicial Watch sent a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla asking him to clean up California’s rolls or risk litigation. “Allowing the names of ineligible voters to remain on the voting rolls harms the integrity of the electoral process and undermines voter confidence in the legitimacy of elections.” “As the top election official in California, it is your responsibility under federal law to coordinate California’s statewide effort to conduct a program that reasonably ensures the lists of eligible voters are accurate.“ Judicial Watch gave 14 days to respond and 90 days to correct the voter rolls.

Limits on Special Counsel’s Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5312-Limits-on-Special-Counsel’s-Investigation Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General, said on Sunday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has to get permission before investigating any crimes outside of the Russian investigation. “Bob Mueller understands and I understand the specific scope of the investigation, and so no, it's not a fishing expedition," said Rosenstein. It surfaced last week that Mueller has impanelled a Grand Jury to subpoena documents and receive testimony from witnesses. Mueller appears to be looking into the Trump organization. People around President Trump are afraid that Mueller could make the Trump organization the object of his investigation. If a crime has been found in relation to the Russia investigation, Mueller has free reign to investigation and bring charges. But Rosensten will have to grant permission to expand the investigation beyond Russian interference.

The Senator, who identifies as a Socialist, is releasing a book, just in time for Labor Day, called “Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution.” The books is for teens who have an interest in progressive politics. Speaking to Teen Vogue, Sanders said, ”Young people are the future of our country. As citizens of the United States, they have a responsibility to participate in our democracy and to help create a government which works for all, rather than just the few. This book will expose them to an unusual political campaign, the excitement of politics and what being a progressive is all about." Bernie Sanders envisions directing vast sums to creating the American equivalent of a European welfare state. He says that America should emulate Sweden and Denmark. “The more likely outcome would be turning the country into another Venezuela.”

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm Barack Hussein Obama http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5310-Mmm,-Mmm,-Mmm-Barack-Hussein-Obama The bankrupt state of Illinois shifted its focus from its dismal fiscal affairs and passed a measure ordaining and establishing August 4th of every year to come as an official commemorative state holiday. The state holiday commemorates the birth of Barack Hussein Obama. The holiday will be “observed throughout the State as a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities," Senate Bill 55 reads. An earlier bill failed that would have made “Barack Obama Day” a legal state holiday. While praising the idea of commemorating America’s dear leader, Governor Rauner said, "I don't think it should be a formal holiday with paid, forced time off, but I think it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration." Mindful of the admonition in the Soviet era to not be found clapping too softly for Comrade Stalin, several legislators abstained from voting. No votes were recorded against the legislation.

It is estimated that sanctions could cut North Korea’s annual export revenue by $1 billion. North Korea will be unable to export coal, iron ore, iron, lead, lead ore and seafood. Countries who hire North Korean laborers will not be able to hire more. Joint ventures and investment in current joint ventures will be banned. The Chinese issued a statement calling on North Korea to “maintain calm.” The Chinese Foreign Minister said, "Do not violate U.N.'s decision or provoke international society's goodwill by conducting missile launching or nuclear tests.” President Trump praised the vote and singled out China and Russia for their cooperation.

GOP Sued for Failure to Overturn Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5308-GOP-Sued-for-Failure-to-Overturn-Obamacare A donor to the Republican party is suing the GOP for fraud after legislators failed to pass an Obamacare repeal. Bob Heghmann is suing the GOP for fraud and racketeering and wants his political donations to be refunded. In the suit, Heghmann argues that GOP raised millions of dollars in campaign funds promising to repeal Obamacare but knew full well that they would be unable to do so. The national GOP raised $735 million in large part because it promised to repeal Obamacare. Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, two of the defendants in the case, called the suit a “frivolous nuisance suit that should be thrown out of court by any judge.” Even if the suit is thrown out of court, it makes the point that voters are angry. Republicans utterly failed to deliver on their promises. “Too few conservatives are willing to invest their time, talent, and money and personally participate inside the Republican Party,” Blackwell said. “A Republican majority will mean a conservative majority if and when a sufficient number of conservatives figure out why the success of their principles depends on their personal involvement in local, state and national Republican Party committees and in party nomination contests.”

The types of jobs that Americans are now doing has changed. Many factory jobs are gone. But opportunities in the service sector and health care have opened up for Americans. Workers with college educations have taken jobs in technology, finance, and medicine. The unemployment rate came in at 4.3 percent in July. The labor force participation rate increased to 62.9 percent. The Labor Department reported that the economy added 209,000 jobs in July. Wages grew by 2.5 percent from the previous year.

New Front on Sanctuary Cities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5306-New-Front-on-Sanctuary-Cities Attorney General Jeff Sessions launched a new front on sanctuary cities on Thursday. The DOJ’s Public Safety Partnership (PSP) program will be “limited to those jurisdictions the ‘show a commitment to reducing crime stemming from illegal immigration.’” To participate in the PSP program, jurisdictions will have to take “certain measures to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security.” Federal authorities will have to be permitted to enter jail facilities and notifying federal authorities 48 hours before a suspected illegal alien is released. Attorney General Sessions pointed out the case of the illegal alien who had been deported twenty times and then allegedly sexually assaulted an elderly woman in Portland. “By protecting criminals from immigration enforcement, cities and states with so-called ‘sanctuary’ policies make all of us less safe,” said Sessions.

Fight Over Concealed Carry http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5305-Fight-Over-Concealed-Carry Republicans in the House and Senate introduced national reciprocity legislation. Concealed carry permits in one state would make it valid in all states. Gun control laws in many states would wiped out if the legislation passes. For instance, California only recognizes its conceal carry permit as valid. It does not have reciprocity agreements with any other state. In a new found respect for state’s rights, state officials in New York and California are fighting the legislation. The California Police Chiefs Association says that the legislation would “erode local control of issuing concealed carry permits.” New York City Mayor de Blasio complains that the national reciprocity law would “essentially force the localities to give full faith and credit to permits that are issued on less rigorous grounds.

And I have this morning a warning for would-be leakers: Don’t do it.” Sessions also announced that the DOJ was reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas. In a three point plan, Sessions said that the Deputy Attorney General and the FBI Director were to oversee all classified leak investigations and monitor every case. U.S. Attorneys will be prioritizing cases involving leaks. And the number of active investigations into leaks has tripled. The FBI has created a new counterintelligence unit to manage the cases.

DOJ Payments Scheme Being Investigated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5303-DOJ-Payments-Scheme-Being-Investigated Under a long standing law, the Justice Department would allow corporate defendants to pay money to non-governmental organizations to avoid further prosecution.

Attorney General Sessions put an end to the practice in June in a department-wide memo that listed three narrow exceptions.

The DOJ has until the end of August to report all payments. Payments that have been agreed to but not paid are to be identified.

The CBO has been way off on several significant pieces of legislation. In 2010 the CBO estimated that 21 million people would receive healthcare by 2016. But only 10 million did. The CBO predicted that Medicaid would grow by 17 million people. Actually 34 million people were added to Medicaid’s rolls. The CBO estimated that if the Obamacare individual mandate were repealed, 7 million people would lose their Medicaid coverage. The CBO makes fantastic projections that never seem to be rooted in reality. The CBO does not have to reveal any of its data, models, or details of how it arrived at its conclusions. Senator Lee introduced legislation to require the CBO to release all information that it uses to score legislation.

Special Counsel’s Office Zeros In On Flynn http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5301-Special-Counsel’s-Office-Zeros-In-On-Flynn The Special Counsel’s office asked the White House for documents “concerning former national security adviser Mike Flynn.” The special counsel’s office is interested in Flynn’s ties to the Turkish government. Particularly whether or not Flynn received payment from Turkey in the final months of the campaign. Flynn filed his third financial-disclosure form recently. The updated forms show “money he received for Russia-related groups and his contract work with a data mining company that helped Trump’s campaign.” Flynn was fired as national security adviser when it was discovered that he’d mislead the vice-president about his communications with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. An attorney working for President Trump said, “We’ve said before we’re collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis. It’s full cooperation mode as far as we are concerned.”

Managing the War in Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5300-Managing-the-War-in-Afghanistan The White House is floating the idea of replacing General Nicholson who is currently head of American forces in Afghanistan. The open slot would allow the president to fill it with National Security Advisor McMaster and move CIA Director Mike Pompeo to head the National Security Council. McMaster has been trying to increase the number of troops in Afghanistan and commit to another four years. But so far he has not sold the president on his idea. Senators Lindsey Graham and Bob Corker are not so sure of these staffing moves. Graham would support McMaster heading American forces in Afghanistan if the rules of engagement are changed to allow greater flexibility in fighting the Taliban. He also wants troop levels raised. The on and off commitment to Afghanistan encourages the Taliban to play both sides according to Senator Corker. He said that under President Obama, “The policies we had in Afghanistan were ludicrous.”

The lawmakers urged the Secretary to not comply with President Trump’s proposed ban on transgenders in the military. "As members of Congress with an abiding interest in our nation's military and its policies towards the LGBTQ community, we write to not only express our strong opposition to President Trump's recent tweets seeking to ban transgender individuals from the military, but to remind you not to comply with any unconstitutional directive which may ultimately be issued," said lawmakers. "We commend the professionalism displayed by the military's leadership in their initial response to President Trump's ill-conceived pronouncement. But as you are no doubt aware, federal court decisions have recognized that under our constitution transgender people are protected against discrimination on the basis of sex – like everyone else – as well as on the basis of their transgender status," continued Democrat lawmakers. The letter comes a day after 17 retired flag officers released their letter to President Trump thanking him for his stand against transgenders in the military. The officers cited the financial cost as well as the time that commanding officers would have to spend integrating transgenders into units.

It also prohibits university administrators from disinviting speakers to the campus, either because they disagree with what the speakers might say or because of threatened protests.

Four other states have adopted similar legislation and bills along the same lines are being considered in Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and even surprisingly in California. Many conservatives are saying it is about time.

Senior Democrat Concerned about Leaks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5297-Senior-Democrat-Concerned-about-Leaks Senator Mark Warner of Virginia is the first Democrat in Congress to come forward and demand an investigation into the leaks of sensitive government information, like the transcripts of Trump telephone conversations. Warner is the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee and sees these leaks as “disgraceful” and very damaging to the ability of the President to deal with foreign leaders.

He also understands that if this type of behavior goes unpunished it could be just as pervasive in future administrations. Even some former members of the Obama administration are calling for the leaks to be plugged to protect our national security.

Pentagon Planning more War Games http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5296-Pentagon-Planning-more-War-Games With threats around the globe increasing from countries like North Korea, Iran, China, and now Russia, the Pentagon is planning more war games and maneuvers on a global scale. These include integrated games that involve the militaries from multiple U.S. Allies including ground naval and air forces. Military leaders consider the threats as real and increasing so extra steps need to be taken to prepare for any eventuality.

Potential enemies like Russia and China have already ramped up the training of their forces with war games and are upgrading their equipment. For example, the Chinese now have an aircraft carrier and North Korea is increasing its submarine fleet.

Democrat Governor Switches Parties http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5295-Democrat-Governor-Switches-Parties In another major setback for the struggling Democrat party the governor of West Virginia, Jim Justice, has announced that he is switching his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. This gives Republicans control of both the legislative and executive branches of government in 26 states while the Democrats only have that in six states.

Two of the six states are on the west coast and the other four are on the east coast. Most of the 26 republican states are all in what liberal elitists disdainfully refer to as flyover states. Many of these states such as Michigan and Wisconsin used to be considered Democrat strongholds.

Al Gore’s Home Found to Use 21 Times the Energy of Average Home http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5294-Al-Gore’s-Home-Found-to-Use-21-Times-the-Energy-of-Average-Home Al Gore holds himself out as the guru of environmentalists and is preparing to release a sequel to his so called documentary “An Inconvenient Truth”. He is adamantly in favor of the climate treaty signed by Obama, and accuses everyone who disagrees with it of being liars or hypocrites. He is emphatic in his belief that failure to enforce it will lead to the end of the world.

However, like many of those on the left he talks the talk, but fails to walk the walk. A recent study has found that Gore’s home in Tennessee uses 21 times more energy in a year than the average American home. Gore also owns two other properties, but no figures are available on how much energy they consume.

More Incriminating Clinton Emails Found http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5293-More-Incriminating-Clinton-Emails-Found Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch has stated that his organization has uncovered over 500 new emails that were in the possession of Huma Abedin and that were sent out by her or on Hillary Clinton’s private server while she was Secretary of State. Some of the information was classified, and other emails apparently show that Clinton Foundation donors were getting special access to the Secretary.

All of this constitutes potential criminal activity and the statute of limitations has not run out on any possible crimes committed by Abedin or Clinton. Fitton and others believe there should be further investigation and possible criminal charges filed.

Robert Mueller Impanels Grand Jury http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5292-Robert-Mueller-Impanels-Grand-Jury Special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to further investigate the claims that Russia meddled in the U.S. election last year. According to most legal experts this is not a particularly unusual development, because grand juries often are put in place to assist the Department of Justice and the FBI in investigations.

Grand juries have broad powers to issue subpoenas for witness testimony and documents. It does not mean that anything has been specifically learned at this time pointing to something like collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. As pointed out by the White House counsel, this is something routine that they expected, and they are hopeful that this may lead to a speedy conclusion.

More Damaging Leaks from White House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5291-More-Damaging-Leaks-from-White-House The Washington Post unabashedly hates Donald Trump and will do anything it can to embarrass him even if it also damages the national security interests of the United States. WAPO has published the transcripts of two private phone calls that the president had with the leaders of Mexico and Australia. The newspaper says it got the transcripts from an unnamed source, apparently in the White House.

Whoever leaked this information has committed a felony under federal law, and by publishing the information the Post has put the president in the position of being unable to effectively communicate with foreign leaders on the phone. This puts our nation in danger.

New Purpose for Sweden’s Army http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5290-New-Purpose-for-Sweden’s-Army Sweden’s army has a new mission. Apparently it does not involve defending the country. Instead, its leaders say that the military’s “task is to defend your right to live with whoever you want, as whoever you want, and in any way that you want, and we will go to any lengths to do it.” Some Swedes were not pleased with the new mission. One Facebook user asked, “Are you so lost in the rainbow mist that you’re forgotten you’re supposed to be warriors?” Another said, “Swedes have absolutely nothing against other people’s way of life, but it is distasteful to impose their propaganda in our workplaces.” The army plans to dig in and not surrender to the intolerable social pressure. Army personnel director Klas Eksell said that the military would “participate in Stockholm’s Pride week, and also in local Pride events all over the country.” “We must work to reflect the society we have the task of protecting,” he added.

Spy Agency Influencing An Election http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5289-Spy-Agency-Influencing-An-Election South Korea’s spy agency, NIS, attempted to influence parliamentary and presidential elections. The spy agency admitted that it had tried to manipulate voters in an attempt to help the conservative party. The agency used its cyber warfare unit to operate 30 teams for more than two years in the time leading up to the 2012 elections. Pro-government views and suppression of anti-government views were done on Twitter and postings on portal sites. Anti-government opinions were dismissed as pro-North Korean attempts to influence South Korean politics. The South Korean president plans to reform the NIS to prevent it from meddling in future elections. He said that NIS needs to focus on “collecting and analyzing intelligence on North Korea and foreign affairs.”

Cops Not Served At Dunkin Donuts http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5288-Cops-Not-Served-At-Dunkin-Donuts An employee allegedly “ignored and denied service” to two police investigators at a Baskin Robbins combo Dunkin’ Donuts store in Brooklyn New York. The officers got in line and waited their turn. An employee asked the customers behind the officers what they wanted. When it was pointed out that the officers were ahead, the employee said, “Yeah, I know, but I don’t serve cops.” The officers left the store and went to another Dunkin’ Donuts shop. “I think it’s disgraceful but I’m really not surprised," said Michael Palladino, president of the Detectives' Endowment Association. ”And there’s some shared responsibility here of course there’s some degree of responsibility on the clerk for his ignorance but there’s also some responsibility on the part of elected officials who have encouraged this type of behavior for their constant bashing of police officers and the decriminalization agenda, so although I’m shocked I’m not surprised.” Mayor de Blasio said that it is illegal to refuse service. The owner of the Dunkin’ Donuts apologized and plans to meet with the officers in the coming week.

The Peculiar Activities of H.R. McMaster http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5287-The-Peculiar-Activities-of-H.R.-McMaster H.R. McMaster, National Security Advisor, issued a letter to former National Security Advisor Susan Rice assuring her that her security clearance would be maintained. “Going forward, the NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.” McMaster further waived “the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you ‘originated, reviewed, signed, or received while serving’ as national Security Advisor.” Two senior White House officials said that the president was unaware of McMaster’s actions. McMaster also is reportedly to have concluded that Susan Rice did nothing wrong in unmasking the identity of Trump transition officials. President Trump has targeted Susan Rice in interviews and in speeches saying, “I think the Susan Rice thing is a massive story.”

They went on to say, “[B]ut please know that overturning this policy may have done more in the long-term to save the culture and war-fighting capacity of the U.S. military than perhaps any other military policy you will adopt as president.” The authors pointed out that the time and management spent on transgenders would be costly to military readiness. Per DoD guidelines, “[T]hose serving in the military must be ‘medically adaptable to the military environment without the necessity of geographic area limitations.’” They went on to point out that privacy would be a real issue because of the close living quarters which would be more distressing for women.

Nominees Get Confirmed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5285-Nominees-Get-Confirmed The Senate confirmed 65 nominees to positions within the government on Thursday afternoon. This marks a radical shift in tactics by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Until Thursday, Schumer had sought to drag out the confirmation process “to an excruciating degree.” 198 nominees are still in working their way through Senate committees. Republicans proposed to “curb the amount of debate time required for most of the president’s nominees after they clear the initial hurdle.” But after Thursday’s vote, proposals to change the procedural roadblocks had been tabled. Majority Leader McConnell tweeted, “The #Senate has confirmed more Executive Branch nominees this week than all of the Executive Branch nominees confirmed this year—combined.” Having confirmed 65 nominees, the Senate will recess for the month of August. Former Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison will be ambassador to NATO and New York Jets owner will be ambassador to the UK.

McMaster seems to be most comfortable with holdovers from the Obama Administration.

Preferring to say that Iran was not keeping the spirit of the agreement but “walking up to violating the letter” of the agreement. There are staffers who want McMaster out as National Security Advisor. However, the president likes McMaster’s hard charging style and well-though-out positions.

The grand jury was impaneled weeks ago. Grand juries can not only indict people on criminal charges, they are also used to pursue the release of documents, and compel testimony. Another grand jury has been investigating former national Security Advisor Mike Flynn.

Defendants Found Not Guilty http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5282-Defendants-Found-Not-Guilty Two Virginia men were found not guilty in a Maryland courtroom on Thursday. During a race for city counsel in 2014, Dennis Fusaro and Steve Waters were behind a robocall that outed the Democratic candidate as being in support of the bathroom bill which would allow transgenders to use whatever bathrooms they wanted. The robocall did not say that it was authorized by a candidate. Instead it falsely claimed that it was “Paid for and authorized by Marylanders for Transgenders.” Fusaro and Waters were charged with two counts of violating and conspiring to violate “the authority line requirements of Maryland election laws.” They were found guilty in February after a bench trial. The defendants appealed to the circuit court and asked for a jury trial. The defense argued that they had a first amendment right to anonymous speech. The six day trial ended in an acquittal for the defendants.

Two American Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5281-Two-American-Soldiers-Killed-in-Afghanistan In what should be a wake-up call for the American people two U.S. service members have been killed in Afghanistan. The deaths occurred when a NATO convoy was ambushed by the Taliban. This story is being basically ignored by the mainstream media despite the fact that this is the ninth death among American forces this year.

Many people are questioning the fact that President Trump’s considering sending in 5,000 more troops to try and undo the damage caused by the Obama administration’s insistence that the war be fought in a politically correct manner. He imposed rules of engagement that made it impossible for our military to effectively destroy the Taliban. Trump appears to be ready to reverse that.

The reaction was swift among the demorates who want everyone in their party to toe the line when it comes issues that they hold sacred such as protecting the right of Planned Parenthood to make money killing the unborn.

University Orders 9/11 Memorial Moved http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5278-University-Orders-9/11-Memorial-Moved A conservative campus organization at Southern Methodist University, Young Americans for Freedom, has set up a memorial using over 3000 small American flags every year to honor the victims of the 9-11 terrorists attack. It has always been located at a very prominent location on the Dallas campus until this year when the administration ordered it moved to a much less prominent spot on campus.

This was bad enough, but what really infuriated many students and alumni was what the campus administration said to justify this. It stated that the messaging of the display could be considering “triggering, harmful, or harassing” to someone. The university has since apologized for the statement, but is standing by the moving of the memorials, apparently so that Muslims will not be offended.

It wants to increase them. The Attorney General reversed a “2015 ban on adoptive seizures” where state authorities seize assets and turn them over to federal authorities and in turn the state authorities get 80 percent of the proceeds. Senator Rand Paul is fighting back. He and several colleagues wrote to Sessions asking him to rescind the recent expansion. He pointed out that in 2014 the federal government was the biggest burglar in America. It seized more cash and property than did burglars. Senator Paul introduced the Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration Act. If the act became law, it would restore the principle of “innocent until proven guilty.” The federal government would have to prove that property was used in criminal activity before seizing it. The act would also “remove the profit incentive of civil forfeiture and restore the motivation to law enforcement of public safety, not financial rewards.” Additionally, federal law enforcement would not be allowed to ignore state laws that restrict civil forfeiture. And adoptive seizures would be banned.

The travel restriction becomes effective September 1, 2017. It will remain in effect for one year unless it is extended or revoked by the Secretary of State. North Korea recently launched a missile that is thought to have the capability of striking anywhere within the United States. After speaking with President Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham reported that war with North Korea is a possibility, especially if North Korean continues with its missile tests and nuclear weapons programs. On Tuesday, China’s president asked Chinese military leaders to prepare their forces to win a war. Currently there are no American aircraft carriers off of the North Korean coast. If the carriers return to the region it will indicate something is afoot.

So users who flag content as potentially violating policies on hate speech and violent extremism will subject the creators of those videos to tougher treatment. Content creators won’t be the only ones affected. Searching for keywords that YouTube thinks are ‘questionable’ will cause users to be directed to “videos intended to ‘directly confront and debunk’ what the user was looking for. YouTube will be relying on liberal groups such as the Anti-Defamation League for guidance on what videos should be suppressed Conservative groups are afraid that their content will be targeted. “If a video doesn’t break YouTube’s terms of services then they absolutely SHOULD NOT be attempting to dampen the reach of the video any further,” said Annand Virk. Although violating a person’s free speech is a significant concern, YouTube is a private platform and consequently has a right to decide what content it wants and what content it does not want.

Committees Zero In On Likely Leakers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5271-Committees-Zero-In-On-Likely-Leakers The investigation into the Obama Administration’s unmasking requests keeps turning up more information. Former UN Ambassador Samantha Power made “hundreds” of unmasking requests related to the Trump transition team when reviewing classified intelligence reports. Sources close to the investigation say that the unmasking requests by a UN Ambassador are unprecedented. "Asking for an unmasking is rare at the [National Security Council] or the State Department. It is frankly shocking that anyone would be asking for dozens, and if there are really hundreds it is indefensible," said a former official familiar with the national security establishment. Republicans believe that the unmasking requests were an attempt to undermine the incoming Trump Administration and do as much damage as possible. Former National Security member Ben Rhodes has been identified by The House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee as a likely leaker of classified raw intelligence information. "The outrage about Obama officials spying on Americans, let alone on the Republican candidate and then incoming president, is both real and legitimate," said a former official.

Russian Reaction to Sanctions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5270-Russian-Reaction-to-Sanctions The Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev, expressed frustration with new sanctions. He taunted the Trump Administration saying that it was totally weak and humiliated by Congress. “The Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way,” Medvedev tweeted. “The US establishment fully outwitted Trump. The President is not happy about the sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill. We will steadily continue our work on developing the economy, relying mostly on ourselves.” The Russian Prime Minister said that the sanctions were “ a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russia. And “it ends hopes for improving our relations with the new US administration.” Medvedev speculated that the Deep State would remove Trump from power. “New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power. A non-systemic player has to be removed.” Russia told 755 American embassy workers to leave the country. It is also moving to seize U.S. diplomatic compounds.

New Sanctions Bill Signed Into Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5269-New-Sanctions-Bill-Signed-Into-Law On Wednesday, President Trump signed legislation that would add more sanctions on Russia as well as restricting his ability to lift sanctions as he saw fit. The bill passed with a veto proof margin. While he complained about it, the president signed the bill into law. “By limiting the executive’s flexibility, this bill makes it harder for the United States to strike good deals for the American people, and will drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together,” said Trump. The president will be unable to return the diplomatic compounds taken by the Obama Administration. Congress will have 30 days to review actions taken by the president to “lift or relax sanctions on Russia.” The president argued that the legislation is an encroachment on the power of the president to conduct foreign policy. “The framers of our Constitution put foreign affairs in the hands of the president. This bill will prove the wisdom of that choice.”

National Security Advisor Interview on North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5268-National-Security-Advisor-Interview-on-North-Korea National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster took on North Korea in an interview on Wednesday. Asked if the Korean dictator should be “sleeping easily at night,” McMaster replied, “No, I think he should not be.” McMaster had no idea how things would change in North Korea if Kim Jong Un were removed from power. He thought Kim’s behavior made the future “almost impossible to predict.” "What is clear is that it is an authoritarian dictatorship that has existed since the end of World War II. It is now in its third generation. And there is a difference in this third autocratic ruler in that he's as brutal as the previous two had been. But he's doing some things differently, he's killing members of his own family,” said the National Security Advisor. As a candidate, Donald Trump emphasized his ability to negotiate tough deals. Negotiations don’t get much tougher than with an aspiring nuclear power and a young hot headed leader. Before Kim is figures out how to mount a nuclear warhead to one of his missiles, President Trump ought to invite Kim to the White House for some tough negotiating.

Chief of Staff Expresses Confidence in Sessions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5267-Chief-of-Staff-Expresses-Confidence-in-Sessions Newly installed White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly reportedly called Attorney General Jeff Sessions and assured him that he can count on his job. Sessions will not be forced to resign or be fired. Although the president is frustrated that Sessions recused himself from matters related to the Russia investigation, Kelly made it clear that the president “is supportive of his work.” Sessions is moving forward with the president’s agenda on illegal immigration, leaking of classified information, and ramping up the drug war. The Attorney General surprised every one in Washington with his recusal, including the president. The recusal resulted in the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign and any contacts with agents of the Russian state.

Al Gore: Energy Hog http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5266-Al-Gore:-Energy-Hog Former Vice President Albert Gore jets around the world telling Earthlings that they need to cut their energy consumption so as to halt global warming. While Al Gore has a problem with the hoi polloi using electricity, he feels free to indulge. The National Center for Public Policy Research reports an inconvenient truth. Gore’s Nashville house used 230,889 kilowatt hours of electricity in the last year. The average utility consumer in America uses 10,812 kilowatt hours a year. It takes more than 20 times more power to run Al Gore’s Nashville house for a year than an average American uses to power their house over the same time period. On top of that, Al Gore owns two houses in San Francisco and a second house in Tennessee. No word on the energy consumption of these additional three houses.

Department of Justice to go After Universities for Race Discrimination http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5265-Department-of-Justice-to-go-After-Universities-for-Race-Discrimination- The Trump administration has directed the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to go after universities that use so called affirmative action to discriminate against white applicants. Federal law has long prohibited discrimination based on race and many liberal universities have seen this as a green light to give preference to minority students at the expense of equally or better qualified white students.

The DOJ will actively investigate universities accused of this type of discrimination, and even engage in litigation against such institutions. It will probably be accused of racism but will actually be fighting against the practice.

House Committee Unmasking Probe Widens http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5264-House-Committee-Unmasking-Probe-Widens The probe by the House Intelligence Committee under the chairmanship of Devin Nunes of California has broadened the investigation into the illegal unmasking of Americans by members of the Obama administration. Unmasking involves innocent Americans who had conversations monitored with people from other countries that may have been part of intelligence surveillance having their names revealed. This can only be done if there is a specific request made with just cause by a government official, and even then the names cannot be made public.

Yet, that is apparently been done on numerous occasions. The members of the Obama administration who are persons of interest in this investigation now include Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes who joins Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and John Brennan on the list.

Security Risks Found in Military Immigrant Recruitment Program http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5263-Security-Risks-Found-in-Military-Immigrant-Recruitment-Program In 2009 the U.S. military began a program to provide a fast track to citizenship for immigrants and non-immigrant aliens who had special skills, such as being multi-lingual, who enlisted in the military. The program brought in more than 10,000 recruits and had some notable successes, but now an internal investigation in the Pentagon has found that many of the recruits were not properly vetted.

The program has now been suspended because many of the recruits are missing, and it is believed that there has been considerable infiltration by people from foreign governments, or even terrorist groups that pose a threat to national security. The investigation is just getting started according to some officials, since there no one seems to know exactly how many people are actually missing.

Military Seeing Increase in North Korean Submarine Activity http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5262-Military-Seeing-Increase-in-North-Korean-Submarine-Activity In addition to the increasing activity in missile testing and nuclear testing by North Korea, the U.S. military has detected some unusual and troubling activity involving the North Korean navy, specifically its submarines. The North Korean navy does not have any nuclear submarines, but its diesel powered subs can still launch missiles and can be deadly.

These submarines operate very quietly and can therefore be hard to detect. The concern is that one or more submarines could get close enough to Hawaii or the west coast of the United States to launch missiles containing either conventional explosives, or possibly warheads with small nuclear weapons or chemical weapons.

The problem has become an epidemic in the Trump administration, and far worse than in any previous presidency. The leaks are coming not only from the White House, but from other departments and government agencies including those in the intelligence community.

This means that not only is information being leaked that is damaging Trump, but also the national security of the United States. These leaks are criminal offenses and Sessions is expected to promise prosecutions.

Calls Grow for Mueller to Step Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5260-Calls-Grow-for-Mueller-to-Step-Down Concern is growing over Robert Mueller’s possible conflict of interest in his investigation as special counsel of Russian meddling in the U.S. elections. The problem is that the investigation is expanding into looking into allegations that President Trump may have tried to obstruct justice by firing FBI director James Comey. That means that Comey is a potential witness in the investigation.

The law that allows for the appointment of a special counsel specifically says that that if the person serving as special counsel has a personal relationship with the subject of the investigation or a key witness then the special counsel must step down. It is well known that Mueller and Comey have been close friends for years.

Fighting in the streets is continuing with more people being killed and injured. Now Maduro has ordered his security forces to round up and arrest opposition leaders. Several have been pulled out of their homes in the middle of the night.

American officials are now concerned that the chaos will open the door for Maduro to take a page out of the Cuban and Syrian playbook and invite the Russians in to prop up his regime This would give the Russians a dangerous foothold right in the backyard of the U.S.

Press Secretary Flips Russia Conspiracy Questions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5258-Press-Secretary-Flips-Russia-Conspiracy-Questions White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was questioned by the media about misleading actions by the Trump campaign and administration on Russia. Sanders shot back, “The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion. And a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And, I think if we’re gonna talk about misleading, that’s the only thing misleading I see in this entire process.” Going on the offensive, Sanders said, “The Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine. The Democrat-linked firm Fusion GPS actually took money from the Russian government while it created the phony dossier that’s been the basis for all of the Russia scandal fake news.” She pointed out that former President Bill Clinton accepted $500,000 for giving a speech to a Russian bank. Vladimir Putin went so far as to thank Clinton for the speech. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton signed off on a deal whereby one-fifth of American uranium is now owned by a Russian company and that some investors in the company are Clinton Foundation donors. Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, was paid $170,000 in 2016 to lobby to end economic sanctions against Russia. Democrats have built an entire narrative around Russians colluding with the Trump campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton. But where there is obvious Democrat actions in concert with the Russians, the media ignores it.

Soros Undermining Anti-abortion Laws in Ireland http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5257-Soros-Undermining-Anti-abortion-Laws-in-Ireland George Soros is using his Open Society Foundation (OSF) to overturn Ireland’s anti-abortion laws and turn the country into a pro-abortion country. Leaked documents show that the Soros organization has developed strategies to be implemented over a three year period. It seeks to “stem, mitigate and reverse the tide of fetal personhood laws and constitutional amendments,” in Ireland. As well it plans “a robust set of organizations advancing and defending sexual and reproductive rights and injecting new thinking/strategy into the field.” The legalization of same-sex marriage in Ireland was seen as opening a window of opportunity to advancing arguments against Ireland’s anti-abortion amendment to the constitution. The Soros organization has poured millions of Euros into Ireland’s pro-abortion groups, turning them into “powerhouses.” Neeve O’Brien with the Life Institute in Ireland said, “The media in Ireland are not remotely interesting in investigating the millions coming into push for abortion. . . . Had Soros been giving millions to pro-life groups it would have made news headlines for a week or more.” O’Brien said that “Ireland’s experience shows that you could ban abortion and protect women’s lives. We have one of the lowest maternal mortality rates and some of the best maternal healthcare in the world according to the UN. So abortion campaigners are focused on smashing Ireland’s laws because they know pro-lifers the world over can look to Ireland as a real, proven example of why abortion is never necessary.”

GOP Pivot To Tax Reform http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5256-GOP-Pivot-To-Tax-Reform Republicans in Congress plan to pivot off of their disastrous failure to overturn Obamacare to pursuing tax reform. Republicans issued a statement on tax reform saying, “We are all united in the belief that the single most important action we can take to grow our economy and help the middle class get ahead is to fix our broken tax code for families, small business, and American job creators competing at home and around the globe.” “Our shared commitment to fixing America’s broken tax code represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity, and so for three months we have been meeting regularly to develop a shared template for tax reform.” Republicans know that they need a major legislative win if they want to do well going into the 2018 mid-term elections. It’s hoped that by focusing on growing the economy, creating jobs, and lowering taxes, voters will get some of the agenda that President Trump promised during his campaign.

Racism in College Admissions Being Investigated by DOJ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5255-Racism-in-College-Admissions-Being-Investigated-by-DOJ In the Obama Administration, the left was able to capture the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department and use it to pursue the “interests of particular minorities.” Now the Department of Justice is changing direction. Instead it is taking on affirmative action in college admissions. The department will pursue “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions,” according to an department document. Affirmative action on college campuses creates an mismatch issue. A minority student who may make it into a second tier university on his own merit may do well. But putting that same minority student into a top-tier university through affirmative action puts that student at the bottom. Affirmative action policies hurt those races “who outperform the minorities who benefit.” A study by Princeton “showed that blacks received a “bonus” of 230 points on SAT scores versus their competitors on the old 1600-point scale; by contrast, Asians are penalized 50 points.” The DOJ’s change of directions is “solid policy aimed at ending the sort of discrimination that continues to divide us by race.”

Democrats Allowed to Defend Illegal Obamacare Subsidies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5254-Democrats-Allowed-to-Defend-Illegal-Obamacare-Subsidies Obamacare got a bailout on Tuesday. A three judge panel ruled that “Democratic state attorneys general can defend crucial Obamacare payments to insurers.” "The states have shown a substantial risk that an injunction requiring termination of the payments at issue here ... would lead directly and imminently to an increase in insurance prices, which in turn will increase the number of uninsured individuals for whom the states will have to provide health care," the order stated. This comes just days after the Senate refused to overturn Obamacare and just a day after President Trump publicly speculated that he might end the cost-sharing subsidy bailouts to insurers. Congress did not provide an appropriation for the insurer subsidies. And they have been ruled illegal by a lower federal court. The Obama Administration continued to fund the subsidies while it appealed the ruling. The Trump Administration continued the funding on a month-to-month basis as Republicans in Congress tried to overturn Obamacare. Without the subsidies, insurers would leave the Obamacare exchanges, giving fewer options for health insurance coverage.

However there are some races that Democrats are winning. But few people are paying attention to the wins. Four state legislative seats previously under Republican control have gone to Democrats. Democrats are crediting their wins to a backlash against President Trump. Democrats have gone further saying that they hope the elections foreshadow what will happen in the mid-terms in 2018. "Out in the states, we're seeing an incredible over-performance at the state legislative level," said Jessica Post, executive director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. President Trump may end up being the best thing that has happened to Democrats. If the trend at the state level continues, Democrats will start pushing socialism and increased government power. Turning back progress towards liberty and freedom at the state level.

Democrat Scandal Grows http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5252-Democrat-Scandal-Grows Congress is launching an investigation into the scandal surrounding Representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s information technology staffers. She refused to fire the IT staffers until they were arrested trying to flee the country. The IT staffers are alleged to have stolen computer equipment from lawmaker’s offices. Additionally, they had access to sensitive government information related to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Congressional investigators plan to compel testimony from Rep. Wasserman Schultz. Congressional sources say “the Democratic leader’s refusal to answer questions could ‘merit resignation.’” One source said, ”At best for her that is gross misapplication of public funds that could merit resignation alone. There's got to be more to that story." Rep. Don DeSantis said that the situation is one of the all-time congressional scandals in the last 30 years.” This is the second scandal that Rep. Wasserman Shultz has been involved in. In 2016 she abruptly resigned as Chair of the Democratic National Committee when emails surfaced showing that she’d sought to undermine Bernie Sanders’ chances at winning the nomination.

Immigration Changes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5251-Immigration-Changes Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton are preparing to introduce legislation that would substantially change immigration rules. The Senators want to lower the overall rate of immigration and they are proposing a skills-based immigration system. Candidates for admission into the United States would be graded on their skill sets. Those with high skills would be viewed more favorably for admission. The new changes, if passed into law, would be somewhat similar to the process that immigrants to Australia have to undergo. The Australian government wants to attract the best and the brightest and accepts those applicants who bring with them the knowledge and skills that Australian industry needs. Low skilled workers tend to push down wages for American citizens because unskilled workers will work for less. The plan being developed is described as raising wages in the U.S. and creating more jobs and making the economy more competitive.

Trash With A Flash http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5250-Trash-With-A-Flash Donald Trump kept his residence at Trump Tower immaculate. Even going so far as to require photographers from Time Magazine to wear shoe covers so that they did not soil his floors. Prior to the inauguration, there was speculation that President Trump would make Trump Tower his New York White House. Eventually the president-elect quashed that rumor by announcing that he would make the White House his residence during his presidency. In the first six months of his presidency, President Trump has spent almost every weekend at one of his golf courses giving rise to speculation why he wanted to get away so often. Now we know a possible reason. It is reported that the president says the White House “is a real dump.” Even though the government spends millions to keep the White House maintained, it is in the end, government housing. And government housing is notorious for being infested with filth, rats, crime, and leaks.

With the personal upheaval over the last week at the White House, the president has no loyalists left in the White House. Now, the president is surrounded with military men. The problem is that when there is a significant foreign policy issue, he will “receive military answers to problems that demand more varied solutions.” The deal maker president has not bothered to bring North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, to the White House for a sit down discussion. Rather than talking and finding a peaceable solution, the military is developing military options to preemptively take out North Korea. When one of the countries does do something dumb, war may swiftly follow.

Studies Finding Many Young Americans Feel “Entitled” http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5248-Studies-Finding-Many-Young-Americans-Feel-“Entitled” Psychologists are finding what many describe as a disturbing trend among many young Americans, particularly millennials to feel that they are superior to most other people and therefore entitled to certain things. This is described as a form of narcissism that can lead to serious problems later in life such as frustration and depression when the person finds out that they are not going to get what he or she wants and not everyone else will bend to their will.

One of the reasons for the rise in entitlement beliefs is the fact that for years liberals have been teaching young people to believe that the government is supposed to take care of them. This was the case with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton telling millennials they were entitled to free college educations and free health care.

According to the new data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2018 1,332 counties will only have one insurance company available in their Obamacare exchanges and 49 counties will have none at all.

As for those that do have choices available they are still going to be subjected to rising premiums that many can’t afford, and skyrocketing deductibles that make the insurance worthless. Republican senators are sure to receive an ear full of complaints during their recess from their constituents that sent them to Washington to get rid of Obamacare.

The sheriff, who served in the office for 24 years, was known for a hard line on criminals and illegals. His office was sued by the American Civil Liberties Union over what it called racial profiling of Hispanics who when stopped for traffic violations, and were asked to produce proof that they were in the country legally.

This action infuriated the Obama administration and ultimately the sheriff was ordered by a federal judge to stop the practice. When he allegedly refused to comply, the sheriff was charged with contempt, and after a bench trial where his lawyers contended he was just doing his job another federal judge found him guilty. He faces up to six months in prison.

The summons is seeking identifying records of users and transaction histories. American taxpayers are required to report any taxable income made through the use of virtual currencies such as Bitcoin. In launching the summons, the IRS presumes that taxpayers are under reporting their taxable incomes. The IRS used John Doe summons to great effect with some Swiss banks and resulted in a number of prosecutions. “Those taxpayer who are using virtual currency need to be aware that once they are identified the U.S is signatory to numerous "information exchange agreement" and that to the extent they are using virtual currency to avoid currency controls their information could be turned over to other governments.”

Luther Strange is in a competitive three way race with Representative Mo Brooks and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. Brooks and Moore are trashing Mitch McConnell in their campaigns as a “despised symbol of the establishment.” Mo Brooks called for Mitch McConnell to step down after he failed to overturn Obamacare.

Arizona Sheriff Found In Contempt http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5239-Arizona-Sheriff-Found-In-Contempt Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio was found guilty of misdemeanor criminal contempt by a federal judge. The 85-year old Arpaio faces up to six months of incarceration. The case against Arpaio stem from a suit demanding that he end the practice of racial profiling. A federal judge overseeing the case ordered the sheriff to end certain practices. But Arpaio disregarded the order and continued to enforce the law. Because Arpaio was charged with misdemeanor contempt, the federal prosecutors were able to avoid a jury trial. A jury trial likely would have exonerated the sheriff. According to James Fotis, President of the National Center for Police Defense, the Judge’s “order was unclear and ambiguous. There is no way a jury would have determined that the Sheriff willfully and intentionally violated the judge’s order.” An appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will be filed quickly.

White House Writing Guidance To Military http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5238-White-House-Writing-Guidance-To-Military Last week President Trump tweeted that transgender soldiers would not be able to serve in the military in any capacity. The Pentagon said that it did not recognize the tweet as an order but as an announcement. It plans to continue allowing transgender soldiers to serve openly in the military until the Pentagon receives formal guidance from the White House. The Trump Administration is now writing formal guidance for the Pentagon. Asked if the White House was discussing the transgender issue with the Pentagon, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said “We have conversations back and forth all the time with the White House in a variety of channels, and those conversations are starting to happen on the issue.”

New National Security Strategy Developing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5237-New-National-Security-Strategy-Developing According to a deputy assistant to the president, A new national security strategy is in the works. Dr. Sebastian Gorka said, “We have had enough with old ways of thinking. The last 30 years of thinking have just been unimaginative. It doesn’t serve the U.S. purpose. We’ve seen about 7,000 people killed in uniform. We have to be smarter about it.” The new strategy is said to fall somewhere between the extremes of interventionism and isolationism. “It is the full spectrum of options of statecraft with American leadership back. We jettisoned political correctness. We jettisoned cliché bi-polar ways of thinking.” The president rejects the neoconservative interventionism of previous presidents. The president “sees the innovations and occupation of other people’s countries as fundamentally un-American,” said Dr. Gorka. He added that America should not be seen as an “occupier, but as a shaper.”

America and Japan Stand United Against North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5236-America-and-Japan-Stand-United-Against-North-Korea President Trump made it clear that he and the Prime Minister of Japan stand together on the North Korean issue. They plan to take “concrete actions” in the face of North Korea’s latest missile launch last week. “I completely agreed with President Trump that we, too, have to take further action. We will proceed with concrete actions to heighten the system and capabilities for defense,” said the prime minister. The leaders will coordinate on economic, military, and diplomatic pressure on North Korea, and they will work to convince other countries to support these pressures. The president reassured Japan that the United States stands ready to fulfill its obligations to defend Japan and South Korea from any attack. Lately President Trump has taken to Twitter to blast the Chinese for doing little pressure North Korea. The president tweeted, “I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!”

White House Shock and Awe http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5235-White-House-Shock-and-Awe On Monday, General John Kelly took over as President Trump’s Chief of Staff. As a former Marine military commander, Kelly is expected to bring order, hierarchy, and a chain of command to a chaotic White House. One of his immediate actions was to dismiss White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci was on the job for ten days and instrumental in getting Reince Preibus fired. However, his interview with the New Yorker was his downfall. It was described as “frank and profane”. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.” The dismissal of Scaramucci leaves Steve Bannon as the last Trump loyalist in the White House. But it is thought that Bannon is keeping a low profile in order to keep his job.

President Slams Congress http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5234-President-Slams-Congress President Trump is stepping up his criticism of Congress for failing to overturn Obamacare. He tweeted “If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies & why should Congress not be paying what public pays?” The president is considering letting Obamacare fall apart so as to drive Democrats to the bargaining table. The president could stop the subsidy payouts to insurance companies. The subsidies defray the cost of poor Americans. The president also may require members of Congress to join Obamacare on the same plans they are forcing Americans to join. President Obama allowed Congress to function as a small business for insurance purposes and receive substantial subsidies. But now that Congress has refused to overturn Obamacare, President Trump could overturn his predecessor’s agreement with Congress. By having to live under Obamacare, Congress might be more agreeable to overturning it.

Kenya’s Election Season Enters Final Week http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5233-Kenya’s-Election-Season-Enters-Final-Week Kenya’s election season will enter its final week on Tuesday. Kenya’s President Kenyatta is facing Raila Odinga whom he faced five years ago on August 8th. Ten years ago Raila Odinga charged that the election was stolen from him. The accusation unleashed two months of ethnic clashes. 1,100 people were killed and 600,000 were displaced. In the lead up to this year’s election, food prices have been rising significantly because of inflation and drought. One of the country’s main staples, maize meal, has been in short supply. Marring this year’s election cycle was the murder of a top election official who was overseeing the voting and tallying system. Otherwise the campaign has been quiet. 180,000 members of the military will be sent to polling stations across the country to secure polling stations.

Free Market Ideas for Health Care http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5232-Free-Market-Ideas-for-Health-Care Senator Rand Paul encouraged President Trump on Monday to take executive action on Obamacare. Senator Paul pushed the president to allow Association Health Plans. The idea would allow for small businesses and individuals to obtain health insurance through trade or professional associations in which they have membership. Organizations such as AARP could offer its millions of members group health insurance. Kentucky’s Farm Bureau with 300,000 members could offer health insurance. A large pool of people would help deal with the pre-existing conditions problem and distribute the cost over enough people to keep premiums affordable. Senator Paul also urged the president to reform Medicaid by “approving state waivers allowing states to implement work requirements, drug testing, and apply monthly premiums to reduce the cost of the government health insurance program.”

The company also admitted that at least one of the people it sold items to is a person who was on the terrorist watch list. The direct sales to Iran include thousands of dollars’ worth of goods to Iranian embassies around the world.

Amazon is owned by Jeff Bezos who also owns the Washington Post and is reported to be the richest man in the world. Amazon has essentially admitted to making the sales and has pledged to stop it and also stated it is cooperating with federal investigators.

S. Air Force B-1 bombers flew over the Korean peninsula near the border. They were escorted by South Korean and Japanese fighter planes. This was clearly a response to the latest ICBM test by Kim Jong Un that he claims gives him the ability to strike anywhere in the United States with a nuclear weapon.

While this claim is probably exaggerated it is still of great concern to American military and intelligence officials who now believe that a North Korean nuclear tipped missile could hit the west coast of the United States. Once again, the threat is proving to be advancing more rapidly than thought.

However, this is going largely unreported by the mainstream media. The only major television network to even mention it was CBS in a 37 second report on the arrest but failed to mention Awan’s connection to Schultz and other Democrats.

Newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times have failed entirely to cover the stories and other papers have barely mentioned it. It is hard to imagine that this same lack of coverage would be taking place if Republican House members were involved.

Crime in California Skyrocketing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5228-Crime-in-California-Skyrocketing In 2014 the liberals in California won a big victory. They convinced the voters to approve Proposition 47 that reduced penalties for many crimes in order to ease overcrowding in California prisons. The voters were assured that this would not cause an increase in crime. Unfortunately they are now learning that the opposite is true.

Arrests for crimes in California are down 30 percent, and that has resulted in an unbelievable 40 percent rise in violent crime in the Los Angeles area. Essentially, minor crimes such as auto theft or simple theft are not punished at all, and multiple offenders get light sentences. They return to the streets and commit other crimes.

Illegal Alien Released by Oregon Sheriff Assaults Two Women http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5227-Illegal-Alien-Released-by-Oregon-Sheriff-Assaults-Two-Women In December 2016 ICE requested a detainer on Jose Sergio Martinez, a 31 year old illegal alien who had been deported from the United States twenty times and had a history of multiple crimes over three states. Despite this perfectly legal request by ICE, Multomah county Sheriff Mike Reese decided to follow his Oregon County’s sanctuary policy and let Martinez go before he could be picked up and deported. The Sheriff said the release was justified in order to build “community trust”.

Unfortunately, for two innocent American women assaulted by Martinez since his release, one of them sexually, this lofty goal of community trust did not protect them. This type of outcome has become almost routine in sanctuary cities and counties

The expulsions will cut the number of American staffers by as much as three-fourths and Putin has also ordered the seizing of two diplomatic facilities.

President Trump has not yet signed the new sanctions legislation, but is expected to do so in the next few days. If for some reason he vetoes the bill, Congress has the votes to easily override the veto.

The 535 candidates for the assembly have been hand chosen by Maduro and the voters can only cast votes for them, not against them.

Depositors could expect a period of five working days which could be extended to a maximum of 20 days. People who wish to avoid losing access to their money should put money under their mattress.

Mayor Lee Brand opposes the bill and promises to veto the legislation if passed. That said, Republican Mayor Brand enjoys a concealed carry permit and carries a gun on the job. He says that he carries because of his “higher visibility.” Brand admits to carrying his gun in City Hall “on a handful of occasions” as well as some “public events”. Bredfeld thinks Brand is hypocritical. “The mayor ought to give every city employee the very same right to protect themselves that he has exercised with his CCW permit.” The Mayor does not expect that there will be more than one or two votes in support of the measure.

Debt Ceiling Politics http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5221-Debt-Ceiling-Politics After failing to pass a repeal of Obamacare, Congress will have to deal with the National Debt ceiling. But not before Congress takes off for a month of vacation in August. In a letter to Congress, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said that the debt ceiling needed to be raised by September 29h or the U.S. government would run out of money to pay its bills. Not all Republicans are on board with raising the debt ceiling. Some Republicans want Congress to cut spending as a price for supporting an increase in the debt ceiling. Republican leaders will likely need some Democrats to assist. In 2011 and 2013, fights over the debt ceiling raised interest rates on U.S. Treasuries. The debt ceiling originated in 1917 during the first world war. Since it is not an effective means of controlling government spending, and since politicians are not serious about controlling spending, it should be eliminated.

Ways Trump Administration Could Kill Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5218-Ways-Trump-Administration-Could-Kill-Obamacare Although Congress failed to repeal Obamacare, the Trump Administration could do several things to weaken the law further. First, the subsidies that people rely upon to pay for monthly premiums could be reduced or eliminated. Congress never authorized those subsidies. A federal judge found that they were illegal in 2016. The Obama Administration appealed the ruling, but the Trump Administration could abandon the case. It would be one of the fastest ways to eliminate the program. Second, the president could stop subsidizing members of Congress. Congress gets subsidies by classifying itself as a small business. The government is paying 75 percent of the premium for members of Congress and their staff members. By taking away the subsidy it would spur Congress to take action. Third, the Department of Health and Human Services could increase the number of hardship exemptions and further erode the number of people who sign up. Fourth, the administration could stop encouraging people to sign up for Obamacare. Already the enrollment period has been reduced. People can enroll November 1st through the 15h of December. The previous administration kept enrollment open until the end of January every year.

Russian Revenge http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5216-Russian-Revenge Every time an American president wishes to pursue detente with the Russians, the Deep State finds a way to intervene to put a stop to it. The Senate voted to increase sanctions on Russia. President Trump indicated Friday night that he would sign the legislation. The legislation is a response to unproven allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign and it seeks to further punish Russia for annexing the Crimea in 2014. The Russians have been swift to respond. Russia has ordered the U.S. to cut its diplomatic staff by hundreds and it plans to seize two diplomatic properties belonging to the U.S. government. During the campaign, Trump expressed and interest in getting along with the Russians and improving relations. But after Hillary Clinton’s loss was blamed by Democrats on Russian meddling, the momentum to build better relations was stymied.

The Lessons of Charlie Gard http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5215-The-Lessons-of-Charlie-Gard Charlie Gard died on Friday. In his short life there are valuable lessons that Americans would be wise to learn. First, in America, the rights of parents are still recognized. In Britain, parents have no rights over their children. The bureaucrats at Great Ormond Street Hospital were so extreme in this belief that they would not let Charlie Gard spend his last days in a hospice as his parents desired. The courts would not let Charlie be treated as his parents wished nor would the court allow Charlie to die in the place his parents wished. Second, Charlie Gard’s parents wanted to bring him to the United States where medicine has not been completely tainted by socialism. In America a market still exists where experimentation and treatments exist. In Britain, socialism stifles progress and experimentation. Increasing numbers of Americans think healthcare paid for by the government will solve American’s healthcare mess. In reality, it will create bigger problems, result in less freedom, and lead to more authoritarianism.

Kelly had been serving as Homeland Security Secretary. Priebus was responsible for the White House effort to repeal Obamacare. He was not able to deliver on one of the president’s central campaign promises. And in the end he resigned. "The president wanted to go in a different direction. I support him in that, and, like I said a couple weeks ago, I said the president has a right to change directions," Priebus said in an interview on CNN. As chief of staff, General Kelly will make decisions on policy and staffing as well as act as a gatekeeper to the president. Kelly may also play a role in going after leakers who are talking to the media and giving away sensitive internal information. As Secretary for Homeland Security, Kelly signed off on more invasive TSA pat downs. For Americans who value their liberty and freedom, Kelly may be President Trump’s worst appointment.

Senator John McCain dramatically delivered the crucial “No” vote to defeat the bill. For seven year Republicans promised voters that if they had the White House, Senate, and House they would repeal Obamacare. They demonstrated their commitment by pushing through a repeal of Obamacare in the House and Senate in 2015, knowing full well that President Obama would veto the legislation. Republicans raised billions of dollars off of their promise to repeal Obamacare root and branch. In the end, it was all talk and no substance. Republicans fell flat on their faces, unwilling to to create free market reforms that would create cheaper, more free, and better healthcare. Instead Republicans voted to keep a top down, autocratic, centralized system of health care that will never work.

The bill will now go to President Trump who can either sign it or veto it. However, the large votes for the legislation in both houses of Congress are a clear indication that any veto would be overridden.

Putin has said he will retaliate and the European Union has expressed concerns that the action may affect the economies of its member states, many of whom rely on Russian energy production. The vote will also affect Trump’s efforts to improve relations with Russia; something that many members of both parties in Congress believe is misguided.
