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.

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.”

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.

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.

Massive Evidence Surfaces of Unmasking by Obama Officials http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5211-Massive-Evidence-Surfaces-of-Unmasking-by-Obama-Officials House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunez (R-CA) says he has uncovered hundreds of cases of Obama administration officials requesting the unmasking of the names of Americans whose conversations with people in other countries were intercepted by the intelligence community. Since these Americans are not the subjects of any investigations their identities are required by law to be kept secret.

They can only be “unmasked” when a request is made by a high level government official and specific reasons for the request are given. Even then their names cannot be released to the public. Yet, according to Nunez most of the requests he has seen gave no reason for the requests and many of the people were involved with the Trump campaign. Nunez is trying to get more information about how these names were used.

Iran and North Korea Move Forward with Missile Tests http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5210-Iran-and-North-Korea-Move-Forward-with-Missile-Tests Just as North Korea appears to be preparing for additional tests of long range missiles and nuclear weapons the other rogue state of Iran has violated a United Nations resolution by launching a missile that could put a satellite in space or deliver nuclear weapons to Israel or other American allies in the Middle East.

Both Iran and North Korea seem unconcerned by protests in the United Nations or by numerous individual countries including the United States. Instead they appear to be emboldened by the fact that there are never any real consequences for their actions. U.S. intelligence officials are also concerned that North Korea once again to be farther along than they expected.

Trump Gives Out Medals of Valor http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5209-Trump-Gives-Out-Medals-of-Valor Two members of the Capitol Police and three members of the Alexandria, Virginia police department were awarded Medals of Valor by President Donald Trump for their actions in bringing down Thomas Hodgkinson who shot House member Steve Scalise and others. Scalise was with other Republican members of Congress and staff members practicing for the Congressional baseball game.

Scalise was gravely injured and was recently released from the hospital, and his life and others were undoubtedly saved by Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey. Griner was wounded and is still recovering. All five individuals earned the medals.

House Committee Holding Hearing on Free Speech on College Campuses http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5208-House-Committee-Holding-Hearing-on-Free-Speech-on-College-Campuses Among others scheduled to testify before a House of Representatives committee looking into free speech issues on university campuses around the country is Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire. Shapiro had to be escorted out by police after his speech at California State University in Los Angeles was disrupted by rioters, many who had been bussed in from off campus.

Shapiro fears that some universities are becoming too dangerous for conservatives to visit, and free speech may ultimately die in many colleges. Shapiro is joining with some others in calling for federal funding to be denied to institutions that don’t protect free speech to all.

House IT Staffer Charged With Bank Fraud http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5207-House-IT-Staffer-Charged-With-Bank-Fraud Imran Awan, a House of Representatives IT staffer has been arraigned on one charge of bank fraud in Federal District Court. Awan was on the payroll of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz until his arrest at Dulles airport where he was trying to board a plan to his native Pakistan. His arrest was the result of an investigation involving the Capitol police, FBI, an ICE.

He had been doing IT work for a number of Democrat members of the House, and was suspected of stealing money from them. Schultz had initially refused to cooperate with the police in the investigation and that apparently gave Awan time to destroy the hard drives of several computers.

Possible Leaker Being Investigated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5206-Possible-Leaker-Being-Investigated The FBI’s General Counsel, James A. Baker, is reportedly the “top suspect” in an investigation into the leaking of classified information. Reportedly a “close ally” of former director, James Comey, it is not clear what information Baker may have leaked to the media. In coming days, Attorney General Sessions may be announcing a number of criminal investigations into the leaking of classified information. A DOJ spokeswoman said, “[T]hese staggering number of leaks are undermining the ability of our government to function and to protect this country.” She added, “[W]henever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail.” She did not confirm that there was an investigation or that James A. Baker was under investigation.

State Department Tells Americans to Leave Venezuela http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5205-State-Department-Tells-Americans-to-Leave-Venezuela Ahead of Venezuela’s national vote to rewrite the country’s constitution, the State Department ordered the families of U.S. diplomats to leave the country. Additionally the department issued a travel advisory saying that Americans should not travel to Venezuela because of “social unrest, violent crime, and pervasive food and medicine shortages.” As food shortages and inflation have worsened in the country, anti-government protests have escalated. The death toll from the unrest is now above 100. The State Department is urging Americans in Venezuela to have emergency medical evacuation plans and that Americans should be prepared to cover their own medical costs.

In a series of tweets, the Wiltshire Police focused on internet “hate crimes.” “The focus on tonight’s #999WhatsYourEmergency is hate crime – there is NEVER an excuse to spread hate,” tweeted Wiltshire Police. In another tweet, the department promised, “You can’t hide from us if your spewing abuse from behind a computer screen.

One user pointed out the grammatical error of “your.” Another Twitter user wrote, “Great. Illiterate and Orwellian.” The police department was quick to issue a statement saying, “We will not tolerate any form of abuse or discriminatory remarks made on any of our social media platforms. We are reviewing the posts and will consider any potential criminal offences which might have been committed. WE will also ban anyone who is posting offensive or abusive material. Hate crime will not be tolerated in any form in our communities or online.”

Veteran Supports Transgender Ban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5203-Veteran-Supports-Transgender-Ban A veteran soldier, who lost an arm in battle, said that the battlefield is no place “for the gender confused.” J.R. Salzman said the constant stress and intensity of the job caused a lot of people who were not suffering from mental issues to snap. “The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you. The younger guys had problems with that overtime.” The close quarters, stifling heat, and stress of doing the same job every single day magnified even the smallest personal problems “Salzman further pointed out that introducing service members to the team who are ‘mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil’ will inevitably lead to people getting killed.” “Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military,” he said. President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that transgenders would no longer be able to serve in the military. However, until an order to such effect is written and signed by the president, the Pentagon has no plans to change course from integrating transgenders into the military.

In the same survey, 49 percent of respondents thought that the regulations would somehow create more jobs. California recently extended it’s cap and trade system through 2030. Companies would bid on emission’s caps at quarter auctions and be able to trade them. 51 percent of adults surveyed are “willing to pay more for electricity if it is generated by renewable resources. With all the droughts and water restriction that California has experienced, support for desalination plants is supported by 67% of respondents. The environmental movement, however, is opposed to desalinization plants.

Google Contests Canadian Supreme Court Ruling http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5201--Google-Contests-Canadian-Supreme-Court-Ruling Can Canada’s courts impose a world-wide order on Google? The search engine giant is attempting to get that answer resolved. Google is going to court in California to contest a ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada to execute a global de-listing of the suspected fraudulent Datalink website. While Google de-listed the site from it’s Canadian search engine, the company believes that the Canadian Court does not have the power to create a world-wide ban. Google believes that it is protected by the First Amendment as well as the Communications Decency Act, which exempts the company from the actions of users. A lawyer for Google said, “We’re taking this court action to defend the legal principle that one country shouldn’t be able to decide what information people in other countries can access online. Undermining this core principle inevitably leads to a world where Internet users are subject to the most restrictive content limitations from every country.” Yahoo and Bing continue to list the suspected fraudulent Datalink website. Those companies have not been ordered to remove the Datalink site from their databases.

Military Transgender Issues http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5200-Military-Transgender-Issues Earlier in the week President Trump tweeted that transgenders would not be welcome in the military. The president cited the cost and readiness concerns. However, unless the president issues a written order, the Pentagon plans to continue integrating transgenders into the military. The Secretary of Defense does not consider a tweet to be an order. Representative Vicky Hartzler, who is a leading opponent of taxpayer funding of sex changes issued a 10-year, three percent inflation adjusted, cost estimate for the surgery. For active duty, National Guard, and Reserve transgender surgeries and those for new recruits, Hartzler’s office estimated that taxpayers would pay $1.349 billion. The calculation estimated that 30 percent of soldiers would request the surgeries. The elective surgeries are well over $100,000 each. Joining the military and getting taxpayers to fund the surgery would be an incentive for even more transgender individuals to join. In that case, the number of surgeries could potentially be much higher than the estimated 30 percent. The military does not need to be funding elective surgeries when it is doing such a poor job of taking care of its current veterans.

The Chairman asked that a special counsel be appointed “to investigate unaddressed matters” associated with former Attorney General Lynch, former FBI Director Comey, and former Secretary of State Clinton. The Chairman expressed concern that there are many issues arising from the 2016 campaign that are outside the purview of Special Counsel Mueller and won’t be investigated. Issues such as the former Attorney General’s directive to the FBI director to mislead the country about the nature of the investigation into Hillary Clinton. The immunity deals given to potential co-conspirators in the Clinton email investigation. Leaks of classified information that unmasked U.S. persons incidentally collected by intelligence spying. And the FBI’s reliance on “Fusion GPS” as it sought to investigate Donald Trump.

Chicago Gets Government Permission to Kill Rats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5198-Chicago-Gets-Government-Permission-to-Kill-Rats Chicago is overrun with rats, but it had to seek the approval of the federal Environmental Protection Agency to kill them. The EPA has signed off on a plan to allow Chicago to use dry ice to suffocate the rats. The dry ice puts the rodents to sleep before they die. Although it is a “safe and quick approach” to exterminating the rats, animal rights activists are furious. They call the program “inhumane.” In addition to the dry ice, officials will put bait traps around the city which holds a type of poison that causes rats to become infertile. Chicago officials will put “Target Rat” and “don’t Feed the Rats” posters up around the city which will tell citizens to cease from feeding the rats. The program will cost the city $250 a week to purchase 500 pounds of dry ice.

Specifically, the committee wants information about possible communications between Comey, members of the Obama administration, and journalists.

Some Republicans say that their constituents are demanding such inquiries, but there also appears to be growing concern over the fact that Comey admitted to leaking information of a sensitive nature both prior to and after his firing by Trump.

Senator Asking for Investigation into DNC/ Ukrainian Collusion http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5196-Senator-Asking-for-Investigation-into-DNC/-Ukrainian-Collusion Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa had written a letter to the Department of Justice asking for an investigation into the connection between the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Ukraine. Apparently, there is evidence of meetings at the Ukrainian embassy in Washington between DNC officials and representatives of the government of Ukraine.

The reported purpose for meeting was to try and get the Ukrainian government to provide dirt to the Clinton campaign on Donald Trump’s campaign officials. If this was collusion it is not necessarily illegal, and that means that the investigations into the alleged Russia/Trump connections are ludicrous, since there cannot be legal collusion on the one hand and illegal collusion on the other.

California Succession Movement has Russian Ties http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5195-California-Succession-Movement-has-Russian-Ties In a bizarre twist in the movement of some liberals in California to force a referendum on the state succeeding from the union, it has turned out that some of the leaders have ties to Russia. The movement called Calexit was originally started by a group calling itself “Yes California”, and it was learned that it had opened an embassy in Moscow. The group’s leader had close ties to the Russians.

After that effort fell apart a new group called California Freedom Coalition was immediately formed with some of the same leadership as “Yes California”. It appears that anyone from the Trump campaign speaking to a Russian is collusion, so some conservatives wonder what the actions of the group in California should be called.

The ever growing forces of the opposition have staged the second nationwide strike in a week and are planning massive demonstrations on Friday. In addition, the opposition National Assembly is setting in motion what it calls a “parallel state” by appointing judges to stand up against the judges illegally appointed by Maduro.

Maduro has responded by having three of the opposition judges arrested and threatening others. He is also going ahead with an election on Sunday for a so-called Constituent Assembly to write a new constitution giving him ultimate power. Most Venezuelans are planning to boycott the election that they believe is a sham. They are also stockpiling what food and water they can.

Late in his administration Obama had his Secretary of Defense Ash Carter order the military to not only admit transgenders, but make special accommodations for them that would destroy the right to privacy of other military members.

The reversal of this policy by Trump will not only protect the ability of the military to carry out its primary mission of defending the country, but also boost morale and save money.

Outright Repeal of Obamacare Fails http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5191-Outright-Repeal-of-Obamacare-Fails After the Senate voted by a razor thin margin to move to a debate on healthcare legislation, the vote to do an outright appeal of Obamacare failed by 45 to 55 vote with seven Republicans voting against it. This proposal was almost identical to the one passed by Republicans in the Senate in 2015 that was vetoed by Obama.

This calls into question whether Republicans can muster enough votes to pass any kind of healthcare reform. If they fail to do so they will not only be breaking their long standing promise to the American people, but also setting up the failure of Obamacare that will occur with nothing to replace it.

California’s Attorney General will allow the last CalExit group to collect signatures for the right of the state to secede. The group will need to collect 585,000 signatures in order to qualify for the ballot. If passed, the initiative would create a commission to recommend ways in which California could pursue independence, gain more autonomy, and change its constitution so that it would no longer be inseparable from the United States. Under the initiative, California would not be it’s own independent country. Instead, California would somehow remain as a “fully functioning sovereign and autonomous nation” within the United States.

Raising Taxes on the Rich http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5185-Raising-Taxes-on-the-Rich President Trump’s Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, is pushing a tax hike. Bannon wants a 44 percent top marginal tax rate to be imposed on the super rich. The super rich would be defined as individuals earning more than $5 million a year. The tax would merely shift the burden from the middle class and lower earners to the rich. The president seems to be supportive of the higher tax rates. “The people I care most about are the middle-income people in this country, who have gotten screwed. And if there’s upward revision it’s going to be on high-income people,” said Trump in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Shifting taxes around will do nothing to encourage growth in the economy. Cutting taxes at all levels and slashing government spending would do significantly more to get the economy going.

Left Compares Boy Scouts to Hitler Youth http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5182-Left-Compares-Boy-Scouts-to-Hitler-Youth The left in this country will apparently use any thing it can think of to demean and criticize President Trump. Trump made a rousing speech to the 40,000 Boy Scouts attending the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. It was generally a positive speech about the scouts, but the attendees cheered even when it turned political at times. The scouts seemed to really appreciate hearing from someone who did not treat them like children.

This infuriated the leftists who immediately began comparing Trump to Hitler, and the Boy Scouts to Hitler Youth. The fact is that after conservatives and Republicans, the group that liberals hate most is the Boy Scouts. After all, how dare they teach children in America to believe in duty to God and Country, and to be self-reliant and morally straight.

The first came when the United States Supreme Court decided to hear a case challenging the Maryland law outlawing the ownership of certain firearms like the AR-15 and magazines containing over 10 rounds. The ban had been upheld by lower courts but has a strong likelihood of being struck down in the Supreme Court.

The other case involved the Washington D.C. restriction on concealed carry permits requiring applicants show “good cause” for wanting a permit. The D.C. Circuit of Appeals called the rule too restrictive and a violation of the Second Amendment.

He is also calling for restrictions on state and local funding for abortion providers and their affiliates, as well as prohibiting people from being forced to pay for insurance that funds abortions.

The Governor is also asking for legislation requiring clinics to immediately report any complications that occur during abortions. This is far reaching legislation, but it is expected be passed by both houses.

Senate Moves Forward on Healthcare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5178-Senate-Moves-Forward-on-Healthcare In an historic vote in the United States Senate the Senators voted 50-50 with the Vice President voting to break the tie and allow the Senate to move forward with its effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. The vote was almost completely along party lines with two Republicans siding with all of the Democrats.

The result of the vote is that the Senate will now move forward to debate the various proposals being discussed and if something is finally passed it will then be sent to the House of Representatives to try to reconcile the two versions. However, this is the first step for Republicans who want to fulfill their promise to American voters.

Navy Warship Fires Warning Shots at Iranian Boat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5177-Navy-Warship-Fires-Warning-Shots-at-Iranian-Boat In another incident involving Iran in the Persian Gulf, the USS Thunderbolt, an American patrol boat on maneuvers in international waters was harassed by an Iranian vessel to the point that warning shots had to be fired. The Iranian patrol boat ignored radio warnings and flares from the U.S. Navy vessel and finally the crew of the Thunderbolt fired live warning shots when the Iranians got within 150 yards of the American ship.

This incident is the latest in the efforts by Iran, China, North Korea, and even Russia to test the resolve of the American military and President Donald Trump to stand up to aggression.

No Boys in Girl’s Bathrooms in Texas http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5176-No-Boys-in-Girl’s-Bathrooms-in-Texas The Texas Senate passed legislation along party lines to keep boys from entering girl’s bathrooms, showers, and changing rooms in government schools. The use of bathrooms in government schools and buildings overseen by local governments will be limited to the gender of the “person’s official identification documents.” San Antonio and Houston have passed bathroom ordinances allowing men who identify as women to use women’s restrooms. If the Senate’s legislation becomes law, it will supersede local ordinances. The bill heads to the Texas House for passage.

After news of his arrest at the airport, Schultz fired Awan. It was reported on Monday that smashed hard drives and technology equipment was found in Awan’s garage by tenants. The equipment was turned over to the FBI.

Obamacare Congressional Exemption May Be Ended http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5174-Obamacare-Congressional-Exemption-May-Be-Ended In 2008 the original Obamacare text required Congress to obtain healthcare through one of the Obamacare exchanges. In 2013 Congress classified itself has a small business so that it could be eligible for the small business exchange and receive an employer contribution from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The small business exchange applies to businesses with 50 or fewer employees. Congress has thousands. The Trump Administration is considering changing the rule to force Congress back onto the Obamacare plans they exempted themselves from. Some organizations think that by forcing Congress back into the exchanges, the president would gain more cooperation with Senators and House Members.

The Return of McCain http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5173-The-Return-of-McCain Senator John McCain returned to the Senate on Tuesday. The ailing senator launched into a speech about politics in the Senate. He praised the Senate’s history, rules, and customs saying, “[O]ur arcane rules and customs are deliberately intended to require broad cooperation to function well at all.” He reminded senators of the “necessity of compromise” so as to make progress in solving America’s problems. McCain decried the sharp partisanship besetting the Senate. The Arizona Senator told his colleagues to “Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood.” This, despite the fact that Senator McCain made exploited talk radio hosts such as Sean Hannity in 2008 to address voters in his presidential campaign. McCain voted affirmatively on the motion to proceed so healthcare could be debated. However, he does not support a clean repeal of Obamacare, but instead hopes to work with Democrats to fix the Affordable Care Act.

Trump’s Mental Health Up For Public Analysis http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5172-Trump’s-Mental-Health-Up-For-Public-Analysis The American Psychoanalytic Association encouraged its 3,500 members to no longer feel bound by a long-standing ethical rule to not comment on a public figure’s mental health unless they had conducted an examination. A past president of the association said, “We don’t want to prohibit our members from using their knowledge responsibly.” Clearly the break from the rule means that some psychiatrists will be analyzing President Trump and seeking to humiliate him publicly. The rule was originally adopted by the American Psychiatric Association after a 1964 survey of psychiatrists asked if Barry Goldwater was mentally fit for the Oval Office.

State Department Dysfunction http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5171--State-Department-Dysfunction The State Department and the White House are at “open war” with each other on many issues. Obama holdovers, working in key positions, are ignoring White House instructions on staffing issues and policy matters. “Tillerson was supposed to clean house, but he left half of them in place and he hid the other half in powerful positions all over the building,” said a foreign policy analyst. The White House has sent lists of potential candidates for vacant State Department positions, but these are being ignored by aides to the Secretary of State. When it comes to policy, Obama holdovers are maintaining the previous administration’s policies even when they are in conflict with the Trump administration. Supporters of the president are beginning to openly wonder if the White House will be able to get control of the State Department.

State Department Lawyers Rolling Back Genocide Determination http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5170-State-Department-Lawyers-Rolling-Back-Genocide-Determination Obama holdovers in the State Department are working to remove the word “genocide” from speeches and other official documents. State Department lawyers want the word removed when it describes the Islamic State’s murder of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria. By removing ‘genocide’ from documents and speeches, it keeps in place Obama-ara polices that excluded Christians and other religious minorities form U.S. aid programs. Nina Shea, a human rights lawyer, said “I don’t think for a minute it’s a bureaucratic decision—it’s ideological.” Former Secretary of State Kerry made a genocide determination in March of 2016 against the Islamic State. The United States is bound by treaty signed in 1948 to “prevent and punish” genocide. Yet the actions by State Department Lawyers appear to be rolling back that determination.

Federal Court Strikes Down D.C. Gun Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5169-Federal-Court-Strikes-Down-D.C.-Gun-Law The District of Columbia’s gun-carry law was found to be unconstitutional by the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The District’s law required applicants for a gun-carry permit to show “good reason” above and beyond self defense or living in a high-crime neighborhood. The appeals court ruled that the right to carry a firearm for self-protection is guaranteed by the Constitution. And that the District’s law eliminated that right. "To read the majority opinion and not come away convinced that such ‘good reason' or ‘good cause' requirements are just clever ways to prevent honest citizens from exercising their rights is not possible," Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation. The District has 30 days to decide if it will appeal the decision for a hearing by the full circuit.

Jeff Sessions: Loved and Hated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5168-Jeff-Sessions:-Loved-and-Hated The supporters of Donald Trump and conservatives are divided on how the president is treating Attorney General Sessions. Some conservatives are appalled by the way Sessions is being treated by Trump. Rather than firing Sessions, Trump snipes at his Attorney General through his tweets and newspaper interviews. By many accounts Sessions is an honorable man who is the one cabinet level appointee who is doing all he can to implement the Trump agenda especially with respect to immigration. Sessions’ former colleagues in the Senate are appalled at how the president is treating him. He’s signaling to Republican Senators that no matter how loyal, he’ll treat them like crap when the time comes.
http://www.dailywire.com/news/18953/trump-tweets-a...

Then there are supporters of Trump who think Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation was cowardly and disloyal. Rather then inform President Trump of his decision to recuse himself, Sessions announced it at a press conference. Sessions’ recusal left the door open for the appointment of a special prosecutor who is now targeting the president’s family and personal business dealings. There appear to be no open investigations into leaks by the Deep State and Obama-era scandals that were covered up by former attorney generals. No matter what Sessions does or does not do, he’ll be hated.

McCain Reportedly Returning to Senate for Healthcare Vote http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5167-McCain-Reportedly-Returning-to-Senate-for-Healthcare-Vote Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona has often been a controversial figure. While he has always been a stanch supporter of the military and veterans he has not always followed the orthodox Republican positions on other issues. For example, he was very critical of President Bush and the military’s use of so-called enhanced interrogation techniques when it came to terrorists.

However, one thing that no one has dared question about McCain is his courage. As a Navy fighter pilot in Vietnam and then a prisoner of war for over six years who suffered severe torture he showed what he was made of. Now he is exhibiting that courage once again, planning to return to the Senate to participate in the healthcare vote despite being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

They are well aware that the Hollywood elites and the hardcore leftists in the news media are infuriated because American voters did not do what they were told, and elect Hillary Clinton, the anointed one, to the White House.

The resistance has taken the form of obstruction by the Democrats in Congress to attacks by the media using unnamed sources and unseen documents, to riots in the streets. Now, however, it has gotten more bizarre and even humorous with pop star Lana Del Rey resorting to witchcraft to put a “hex” on the President. Many people wonder what is next?

The Chinese maintain that the entire area is their territory and because they have constructed some artificial islands, and claimed some disputed territory, they can deny access to the ships and aircraft of other nations.

The United States and its allies have responded by sending ships and planes into the area to assert freedom of navigation. This latest incident was one of the more dangerous because one of the two Chinese fighters flew within 300 feet of the American plane and caused it to have to divert its course.

In a nutshell, Kushner stated that he did not engage in any collusion with the Russians and did not know of anyone in the campaign who did. He also said he had provided all of the documents the committee had requested, and that he had no business dealings with the Russians. By all accounts his answers were convincing and straight forward.

Awan’s attorney sent the Marine a letter demanding $350 in late charges and items Awan left in the house. “It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” the former Marine said. Representative Schultz has refused to fire Awan as her IT person.

After holding the maximum borrowing flat, universities are finally slowing down their excessive price increases. The aggregate tuition increases were 1.9 percent in 2017. From 1990 through 2016, tuition costs increased at an average rate of 6 percent annually. The availability of government money meant that university administrators could raise their prices and students would come up with the money by borrowing more money. The outstanding student loan debt in America is $1.31 trillion. Many graduates have found it difficult to find jobs in today’s economy. In part, the problem is that students borrowed money for majors where there is little demand for those majors in the real world marketplace.

So Democrats think their salvation will be found in launching a new economic agenda. Echoing FDR’s New Deal and mimicking Speaker Ryan’s “A Better Way” outreach program, Senator Schummer is calling Democrat’s outreach program, “A Better Deal.” Democrats plan to imitate Donald Trump’s populist campaign “in a way that’s really going to resonate with the American people,” said Schujmer. He added, “It is going to be totally focused on working people who realize . . . . that the system is rigged against them, and not helping them with all the changes.” Democrats plan to roll out their new messaging program over the next several months as they prepare for the 2018 mid-term elections.

Not only was the IRS trying to keep conservative groups from getting tax exempt status, but was also trying to force the groups to give up their first amendment rights to free speech in order to get the 501(c)(3) status.

All of this was done to silence opponents of the Obama administration by using illegal and unconstitutional tactics. Unfortunately, they were successful in keeping many groups from being able to participate in the 2010, 2012, and 2014 elections.

They had all succumbed to the sweltering south Texas temperatures while locked in the truck that had no air conditioning.

This is not the first incident of its kind in recent years and it points to the fact that the human traffickers in Mexico charge as much as $1500 per person to smuggle people across the border into the United States. However, they have no regard for the lives of those they transport and this type of outcome will continue until the U.S southern border is sealed.

Scaramucci Vows to End White House Leaks http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5147-Scaramucci-Vows-to-End-White-House-Leaks New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has started out with a hard line vowing there will be severe consequences for leakers of information in the White House or other government departments and agencies. The task will not be easy because the Democrats in the Senate continue to try and block or at least slow down hundreds of Trump appointees to his administration.

This is meant to leave the Obama appointees in place as part of the dark government that involves people who have no loyalty to the president, or their country and especially not to their oath of office. When they leak sensitive information to the press they are committing a felony, and while Scaramuci admits he can’t stop all of the leaks he intends to make the effort.

Attorney General Under New Media Assault http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5146-Attorney-General-Under-New-Media-Assault For months liberals have been complaining about the Russians and their attempts to interfere in the U.S. elections. It is claimed that they have constantly lied about this and collusion with the Trump campaign. Now however, the media is saying that they now have proof of this from a Russian source. That source is apparently former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been accused of meeting with Kislyak prior to the election to discuss Russian support for Trump’s candidacy. Session vehemently denies this. Now the Washington Post, citing unnamed sources from the intelligence community, claims that there is an intercept of a communication between and the ambassador and Putin detailing the meeting. Of course, nobody at the Post has seen or confirmed this communication.

Media in Frenzy Over Trump/Putin Secret Meeting http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5145-Media-in-Frenzy-Over-Trump/Putin-Secret-Meeting At a dinner at the G-20 Summit attended by all of the government leaders and their spouses, President Donald Trump had a lengthy conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump also had discussions with other leaders that evening yet the media is fixated on the so-called secret meeting with Putin. Of course, the fact that the meeting took place in full view of everyone at the dinner means it was not a secret.

However, some in the media says that this is proof of Trump collusion with Russia, and possibly constitutes a crime. Others point out that it is the duty of the president to talk to leaders of foreign governments, including our adversaries, and the media does not have to be invited.

More Freedom in Texas http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5144-More-Freedom-in-Texas Texas Governor Greg Abbott is inviting Americans who want less government in their lives to move to Texas. In an interview with Glen Beck, Governor Abbott pointed out that the state legislature meets every other year. So there is less government involvement in people’s lives. He contrasted that with California’s full-time legislature that is considering single-payer health care legislation. “If you’re coming here to be dependent upon government, you’re coming to the wrong place. Texas is a place for individual liberty, for individual independence. That’s the way we run things here.” The governor is trying to find ways to control “skyrocketing property taxes.” He pointed out that people are losing their homes. Rather than just capping property taxes, the governor thinks a better long-term plan is to cut the property tax. Texas is one of eight states that does not have an income tax.

Holder Says Trump Cannot Fire Special Counsel http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5143-Holder-Says-Trump-Cannot-Fire-Special-Counsel The president’s legal team is looking for a way to “limit and undercut” the special counsel’s investigation. Former Attorney General Eric Holder came out swinging against President Trump. Holder tweeted, “Trump cannot define or constrain Mueller investigation. If he tries to do so this creates issues of constitutional and criminal dimension.” Robert Mueller has staffed his team with diehard Democrats. Impartiality and a fair judgment of the information is questionable. Eric Holder’s tweet however brought a quick response pointing out his hypocrisy. “@EricHolder I think you are the last person who should be giving lectures #fastandfurious,” said one Twitter user. “@EricHolder Um, maybe you are not the best person to be discussing legal ethics #lyingtocongress” Other tweets were quick to point out that Holder had been found in contempt of Congress. Were Trump to fire the special counsel, it might result in impeachment proceedings against him.

Trump Warns Republicans http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5142-Trump-Warns-Republicans Republican lawmakers in Congress will only have themselves to blame if they loose their seats in the 2018 mid-terms. President Trump tweeted on Sunday, "If Republicans don't Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand!" Republicans campaigned for seven years about the need to repeal Obamacare. They voted for repeal many times and even got a repeal successfully passed through the Senate, knowing that it would be vetoed by Obama. Now that Republicans have the votes and a president who will sign the repeal legislation, some Republicans are refusing to do anything, leaving Majority Leader McConnell without a sufficient number of majority votes. At least three Republicans refuse to vote against a bill that would fully repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Republicans Out Raise Democrats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5141-Republicans-Out-Raise-Democrats The Republican National Committee is out fundraising the Democratic National Committee. So far in 2017, Republicans have raised $75.4 million, Democrats have raised $38.2 million. Given that President Trump is so unpopular with Democrats, it is surprising that the party has not had a good fund raising year. The Republican success indicates huge grass roots support for the president. Small donors, contributing less than $200, have raised $10.5 million. The Democratic Party is still navigating difficult waters. Splits between the Clinton and Sanders’ wing of the party are still plaguing the party. Democrats are looking to create a new agenda to appeal to disaffected voters. A recent poll showed that 37 percent of respondents thought the party stood for something, while 52 percent thought the party only stood against the president.

USS Gerald R. Ford Commissioned http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5140-USS-Gerald-R.-Ford-Commissioned President Trump commissioned the USS Gerald R. Ford, the Navy’s newest carrier. The carrier represents a new class of aircraft carrier. There are significant technological upgrades. The aircraft launch system is run on electricity, replacing steam catapults. A new pitstop-concept deck (inspired by NASCAR) allows aircraft to be turned around faster. And there is more living space for every sailor. President Trump managed to incorporate his made in America push saying, “American steel and American hands have constructed a 100,000-ton message to the world: American might is second to none, and we’re getting bigger, and better, and stronger every day of my administration. That I can tell you,” he said. The Navy now has 11 carriers. President Trump is pushing for a 350-ship Navy, including one additional carrier. The president also pushed Congress to end sequestration which capped the Pentagon’s budget at $500 billion for ten years.

Chinese authorities arrested McLean and demanded $7,400 in compensation. If the McLean family did not pay, they threatened Guthrie McLean with three years in prison. They refused to pay. U.S. Senators Daines and Tester and Rep. Greg Gianforte intervened directly with the Chinese Ambassador and U.S. Secretary of State. Chinese officials released Guthrie McLean after 40 hours of negotiations. McLean plans to return to college to resume his studies.

The prime minister accuses the billionaire of using his money to fund pro-mass migration front groups that are pushing the “new, mixed, Muslimized Europe.” “In order for Europe to be able to live, it has to win back its sovereignty from the Soros Empire… Once this is done, migrants must be taken back outside the EU,” said Orban. The prime minister said, “We can never be in solidarity with ideals, peoples and ethnic groups who set out with the goal to change European culture… because the end result is collapse.” The prime minister said that immigration cannot solve Europe’s economic problems. He said that European nations need to have a greater birth rate by native Europeans.

Jeff Sessions Gets Ready to Crack Down on Marijuana Users http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5137-Jeff-Sessions-Gets-Ready-to-Crack-Down-on-Marijuana-Users Attorney General Jeff Sessions is gearing up for a stepped up war against the users of marijuana. The Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety is led by Sessions. It is reviewing policies on charging, sentencing, and marijuana. Advocates of reform expect the task force to recommend stricter enforcement. Eight states and the District of Columbia have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. And 21 states allow for the medical use of the drug. However, the drug is still illegal under federal law. The Obama Administration took a lax approach to enforcing federal law on marijuana. Bi-partisan legislation is pending in the Senate to allow states to set their own medical marijuana policies.

The 75 year-old senator is actively discussing another run. “He thinks he’s earned the right to run again, and he believes if he would have been the [Democratic] candidate he would have won against Trump.” Sanders has traveled to Iowa and gave a keynote address to an Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement event. And he plans to return in August to promote his upcoming book. He’s also held rallies in West Virginia and Kentucky to criticize the Republican health care plan. Sanders would be 78 in 2020 and keeping up an intense presidential run would be difficult. His wife is being investigated by the FBI for falsifying pledged contributions on a mortgage application.

Senate Parliamentarian Makes Sure Planned Parenthood Stays Funded http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5135-Senate-Parliamentarian-Makes-Sure-Planned-Parenthood-Stays-Funded The Senate Parliamentarian, Elizabeth MacDonough, is keeping abortion the most protected institution of the state since slavery. She made sure that the “defunding of Planned Parenthood would not be a part of the Senate health care bill.” The Parliamentarian cited the Byrd Rule as her reason to keep the defunding measure out of the pending legislation. The Byrd Rule prohibits the Senate from considering extraneous matters as a part of a reconciliation bill, resolution, or conference report. The Senate would need 60 votes to push through the action. “The parliamentarian’s decision today proves once again that the process Republicans have undertaken to repeal the Affordable Care Act and throw 22 million Americans off of health insurance is a disaster,” gloated Senator Bernie Sanders. The current Senate Parliamentarian was appointed by retired Senator Harry Reid.

Permit Needed To Sell Lemonade http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5134-Permit-Needed-To-Sell-Lemonade In London, a 5-year-old girl was fined £150 for selling lemonade without a permit. Local law enforcement cited a host of violations before issuing the citation. The father, Andre Spicer, said that his daughter burst into tears and asked, “Have I done something bad?” Although Spicer assured his daughter that they would get a permit, the little girl said that it was “too scary” to do again. Spicer wrote a column for the Telegraph describing the budding entrepreneurship shown by his daughter and the law enforcement efforts to shut it down. The incident received so much attention that the town council rescinded the fine and apologized to Andre Spicer and to his daughter. By imposing licensing and permitting, government creates unemployment and barriers to entry. Government should be encouraging citizens to work and to improve their lives.

Fewer Americans on Food Stamps http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5133-Fewer-Americans-on-Food-Stamps Americans are getting off of food stamps. 42.6 million Americans are currently enrolled in the program. Participation in the program fell to its lowest level in seven years. In 2013 as many as 47.6 million Americans were getting government benefits. Participation has fallen in part due to a cut in the program in the 2014 Farm Bill. Some states have been resurrecting work requirements. As the economy improves, more people are able to find work and support themselves and their families. At the federal level, representatives are working on legislation that would make work requirements a national program.

Judge Continues to Block Sanctuary City Order http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5132-Judge-Continues-to-Block-Sanctuary-City-Order A Federal judge in California will not reconsider his decision to block President Trump’s executive order that would cut funding to sanctuary cities. Much like fellow judges ruling on the temporary travel ban, Judge Orrick justified the blocking of the president’s executive order because of “public comments” made by the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Attorney General issued a memorandum seeking to clarify the executive order and limit the scope. However, Judge Orrick said the interpretation was “not legally plausible in light of the Order’s plain language and the government’s many statements indicating the Order’s expansive scope … `similar promises are routinely rejected by courts as illusory and should not impact the analysis here.” Now the Department of Justice must figure out how to pressure local authorities to comply with immigration law.

This greatly hinders the chances of migrants finding jobs. Annie Rubensson, a manager with the service said, “we are working hard to motivate and we will strengthen our efforts in the guidance to inform about what is required in the Swedish labour market.” A high school education is required to get a permanent job in Sweden. In June of 2016, a state-owned broadcaster said that of the 163,000 migrants, only 494 had found meaningful work. Sweden may get stuck funding a permanent underclass of people who live off of government welfare and have no desire to work.

Deep State Claims Sessions Discussed Campaign Matters with Russian Ambassador http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5130-Deep-State-Claims-Sessions-Discussed-Campaign-Matters-with-Russian-Ambassador The Washington Post is reporting that Jeff Sessions met with the Russian Ambassador during the campaign and discussed “campaign-related matters.” The Washington Post did not actually see the raw intelligence data on which the claim is made. Deep state bureaucrats only described the intercepted conversations to reporters. If the information is true, then this would contradict Sessions’ statement that he made in March where he said, ““I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign.” Department of Justice spokesman Sarah Isgur Floresf said, “Obviously I cannot comment on the reliability of what anonymous sources describe in a wholly uncorroborated intelligence intercept that the Washington Post has not seen and that has not been provided to me.” This revelation comes just days after President Trump told the New York Times that he would never have appointed Jeff Sessions if he’d known that Sessions would recuse himself over Russia related matters.

Changes At The White House http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5129-Changes-At-The-White-House President Trump re-shuffled some of his top aides on Friday. The president brought in Anthony Scaramucci to head of the White House Communication’s Office. Scaramucci is a “gun control-supporting, global warming-backing, Obama-donating New Yorker with a Wall Street insider background.” The appointment created a lot of antagonism. Steve Bannon and Sean Spicer opposed the appointment of Scaramucci. The president reportedly slammed the door in Spicer’s face. Spicer later announced his resignation on Twitter. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted to Press Secretary. President Trump appears to be bringing in more Democrats with Wall Street backgrounds into his administration. If he cannot make progress with Republicans to advance his agenda, it’s possible that he will find common ground with Democrats in Congress.

Democrats Worked to Undermine Compensation Regulations http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5128-Democrats-Worked-to-Undermine-Compensation-Regulations A whistle blower in the Department of Labor is accusing officials of writing rules in a way so as to deny compensation to nuclear-weapons workers who became sick after years of exposure. Congress passed a compensation program in 2000 and promised a claimant-friendly process to the workers and their families. However, department officials under the Obama Administration wrote the regulations in such a way so as to make qualifying far more difficult than Congress intended. Because the claimants are poor, elderly, and live mainly in rural areas, they were ignored. "There's explicit hostility toward claimants, and this has become a game for bureaucrats to see how clever they can be in manipulating the statute and the regs to deny benefits to indigent claimants,” said the whistleblower.

Making America More Free Again http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5125-Making-America-More-Free-Again Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta took on occupational licensing requirements on Friday. He encouraged state legislators to rescind occupational licensing because it restricts the job market. Licensing is costing the economy $170 billion. Too often licenses are used to “limit competition, to bar entry, to create a privileged class, or to prevent people who want to work and have the skills to do the job from actually working,” Acosta said. Almost a third of jobs in the U.S. requires a license to operate compared to 1950 when only five percent required a license. Doing away with licensing would increase the number of people working and starting new businesses.

U.S. Treasury Fines Exxon $2 Million http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5124-U.S.-Treasury-Fines-Exxon-$2-Million The U.S. Treasury fined Exxon $2 million because the company failed to comply with sanctions imposed on Russia. Exxon signed several legal documents with Igor Sechin, a Russian oligarch and CEO of a Rosneft, a Russian state oil company. Because Rosneft is state owned, it automatically has close ties to the Kremlin. The legal documents that Exxon signed allowed for a joint venture with the Russian oil company to drill for oil in the Arctic. At the celebration ceremony, Russian leader Vladimir Putin attended. The sanctions imposed on Russia forced the joint venture to be shelved. Exxon estimates it has lost $1 billion because of the sanctions. Exxon has filed a complaint against the Treasury saying that the fine hinges on an “arbitrary” interpretation of the sanctions.

The bag still has tiny bits of moon dust still embedded in the cloth. It was used by Neil Armstrong to gather samples. The bag should have remained a part of the collections at the Smithsonian. However, it was separated from other memorabilia and its’ significance was forgotten. It ended up in a space museum in Kansas run by Max Ary. Ary was later convicted of theft, money laundering, and fraud for selling items belonging to the museum and NASA. Ary’s space memorabilia was seized by the federal government and later sold to cover fines owed by Ary. The lunar bag was one of those items sold. Nancy Carlson saw the listing and bought the bag for $995. She sent it to NASA for testing and authenticating. When NASA realized that the item was from Apollo 11, the agency did not want to return it. Carlson sued in federal court and won. She sold it at an auction through Sotheby’s.

Additionally, the study found increasing support for radical Islamism. Muslim children are getting two kinds of education. One in the government schools and the other in their mosques. Students are being encouraged to be “aggressive toward classmates who were girls, homosexuals or secular Muslims.” Children are being taught in the Mosques to be “morality police” in their government schools. In one case a young Jewish boy transferred to a different school because of anti-Semitic abuse by fellow Muslim students.

Chairman Mark Meadows explained, “I think the real frustration is that the American people do not understand why we didn’t put something on President Trump’s desk on January 20th and now here we are on July 20th and we still have not done anything on health care.” Meadows went on to say that House Republican leadership did not see the merits of bringing a straight repeal bill to the floor for a vote. The only way to get a clean repeal is through a discharge petition. Meadows said that a lot of Representatives are looking at how a vote to repeal Obamacare might affect their careers in Congress. “The only underlying theme is, the time for talk is over, we must provide real action, real results, or the American people will never regain the confidence in government that we promise we would restore,” said Meadows.

President Trump made the decision a month ago to scrap the program. The decision is consistent with Trump’s campaign promises to focus on ISIS instead of expanding the war to include removing Syria’s president. Secretary of State Tillerson said in an interview with ABC News the it is up to the Syrian people to “decide the fate of Bashar al-Assad.”

Senator John McCain, convalescing in Arizona, said, "If these reports are true, the administration is playing right into the hands of Vladimir Putin. Making any concessions to Russia, absent a broader strategy for Syria, is irresponsible and short-sighted." Senator McCain has been beating the drums for war in Syria for years. The senator wants to keep America focused on removing Assad from power.

Dog Sitting Without a License http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5119-Dog-Sitting-Without-a-License In New York City, it is illegal to dog sit if you’re not a licensed kennel. And private homes can’t get licensed. A dog-sitting app, Rover, caught the attention of city bureaucrats who warned the company that people using the app were breaking the law. Health Department spokesman Julien Martinez said, "To ensure the health and safety of pets and reduce risks to public health, the NYC Health Code requires certain businesses to obtain a Health Department permit and comply with necessary regulations — this includes animal boarding facilities and kennels.” New York City’s city council health committee chairman called the rule “crazy.” "To have a law on the books that says that's illegal is antiquated and not practical." The Rover company plans to fight the rule.

Samantha Power Becoming Central Figure in Spying Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5118-Samantha-Power-Becoming-Central-Figure-in-Spying-Investigation Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power is emerging as a central figure in the investigation of the unmasking of Trump transition officials. What is particularly troublesome is that the position of U.N. ambassador rarely requires unmasking activities. Yet Powers made multiple requests for unmasking. And then the names of transition officials in the raw intelligence were leaked to the press. One GOP political operative said, "The U.N. ambassador has absolutely no business calling for the quantity and quality of the intelligence that Power seems to have been asking for." It appears the Obama Administration was using the intelligence community to spy on their political opponents.

Special Counsel Looking Into Trump Business Dealings http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5117-Special-Counsel-Looking-Into-Trump-Business-Dealings In spite of President Trump’s warning that looking into Trump’s business dealings would cross a red line, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is doing just that. Investigators are looking at sales of real estate holdings to Russians. President Trump’s lawyers said, "Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the Special counsel.” The mandate given to Mueller however was expansive including “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and any matter that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” Investigators are also looking into Jared Kushner’s efforts to find financing for real estate projects.

Elizabeth Warren’s Political Theater http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5116-Elizabeth-Warren’s-Political-Theater Senator Elizabeth Warren has created a public persona of taking on the Big Banks and standing for the little people. She’s even launched a coalition of lawmakers and leftist groups called “Take on Wall Street.” The coalition sought to heavily regulate the financial industry. But over the weekend, the bank hating senator was seen socializing at a Democratic fundraiser with the big bank executives she claims to hate. Two sharply contrasting sets of photos have emerged on Twitter. The host of the event, UBS bank executive, Robert Wolf, uploaded photos to his Twitter account showing Warren addressing Democrats, donors, and Wall Street executives under an outdoor tent. Warren’s account shows photos from a town hall style event with 1300 people. She’s framed the event as “merely meeting with voters in the area.” If Warren intends to run in the 2020 presidential election, she’ll need the support of wealthy bankers to fund her campaign.

Growth in Concealed Carry Permits http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5115-Growth-in-Concealed-Carry-Permits A study conducted by the Crime Prevention Research Center shows interesting data on concealed carry permits. Concealed carry permits grew at a record breaking rate in 2016. They grew by 1.83 million. Leading the surge were women and African Americans. “[I]n the 14 states that provide information regarding gender of permit holders, more than one out of three permit holders were women.” Between 2012 and 2016 in five states where racial data is available, “the number of black people with permits increased 30% faster than the number of whites with permits.” Alabama has the highest rate of concealed carry permits where 20 percent of the adult population has one. Indiana is second where 15.8 percent of adults carry concealed. “Regression estimates show a significant association between increased permit ownership and drops in murder and violent crime rates. Each one percentage point increase in rates of permit-holding is associated with a roughly 2.5 percent drop in the murder rate.”

The latest is the arrest of 17 gang members in Long Island, New York for a string of five vicious murders of innocent people.

This brings the total number of arrests since April to 170 suspected gang members, mostly from the countries of Honduras and El Salvador, and many of these people are in the country illegally. The ultimate goal is to break the back of MS-13, and the initial efforts seem to be paying off.

She is already making moves in New Hampshire where the country’s first Presidential primary is held. The 78 year old has been representing a relative poor and largely black district for years has recently been criticized for the fact that she does not live in the district, but in a six million dollar home in an exclusive gated community miles away.

She has also been widely criticized for calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump not only before he was sworn in as president, but before he was even elected. Critics point out that this shows that she either does not understand the Constitution, or may not have even read it.

North Korea Advancing Submarine Missile Launch Capabilities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5112-North-Korea-Advancing-Submarine-Missile-Launch-Capabilities Every few weeks it seems that the North Korean communist state under the control of Kim Jong Un is found to be advancing even further toward its goal of becoming a nuclear power. The latest information uncovered by U.S. intelligence indicates that North Korea is farther along than originally thought when it comes to the capability to launch missiles from submarines containing nuclear warheads against the United States and its allies.

This represents an ominous new development since when this threat is included with the recent successful launch of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) the North Koreans now appear capable of reaching more targets on the West Coast of the United States and even further inland.

This latest obsession ignores the fact that Trump is a seventy year old President who doesn’t smoke or drink, needs very little sleep, and yet appears to have boundless energy for his job.

Instead the media is focusing on the fact that he occasionally likes fast food, rarely plays golf unlike his predecessor, and does not go out jogging. As one guest on Fox News show pointed out, has anyone ever seen a picture of Winston Churchill jogging?

During the Obama administration the American military was cut to the bone, with our soldiers fighting in a protracted war with terrorism with sub-par equipment, virtually no pay raises, and losses of benefits.

Pelosi and her cohorts are okay with the average hourly wage of a private in the army being $8.40 per hour so that the minimum wage for someone making hamburgers can go up to $15.00. She also says that the proposed increase in military spending will increase violence around the world. So in her mind she must think of ISIS as a victim.

The only ones! Nobody does it. It’s crazy. It’s actually crazy.” The Israeli Prime Minister said, “The EU is undermining its security by undermining Israel. Europe is undermining its progress by undermining its connection with Israeli innovation by a crazy attempt to create conditions.” Netanyahu later turned his ire towards the Obama Administration. He said the Obama Administration had a weak foreign policy towards the Middle East. He expressed hopefulness about the Trump Administration’s foreign policy. “The U.S. is more engaged in he region and conducting more bombings [in Syria]. It is a positive thing. I think we’re ok on ISIS. We’re not okay on Iran.”

High Tech Laser Weapons http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5107-High-Tech-Laser-Weapons The U.S. Navy will begin testing a “super laser” in the Persian Gulf. The Navy will use aerial drones as practice targets. The $30 million weapon is said to be “more precise than a bullet.” The laser weapons system moves 50,000 times faster than an ICBM. The laser zeros in on its target and raises the target’s temperature to more than 1,000 degrees. The target then explodes. The laser beam is invisible, inaudible and “incredibly effective” according to Lt. Cale Hughes, a laser weapons system officer. Defense contractors are working on other laser weapon prototypes that could be deployed on aircraft and combat vehicles.

European Union Threatens Sanctions Against Poland http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5106-European-Union-Threatens-Sanctions-Against-Poland The European Union is threatening to invoke Article 7 which would strip Poland of its voting privileges and face sanctions over the Polish government’s proposed judicial reform. Poland has refused to accept Islamic migrants into its country. Poland does not want the crime that comes with migrants. The sanctions would end EU monetary payments to Poland. Poland’s judicial reforms would seek to restrain left-wing activist judges and encourage “Christian values” be worked into Poland’s judicial system. The EU’s vice-president says that Poland would “significantly undermine the independence of the judiciary” if the government proceeds with the reforms. The EU is also threatening Hungary with an invocation of Article 7 because it has hindered George Soros’ Central European University from operating within Hungary.

Testing for Border Wall Begins http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5105-Testing-for-Border-Wall-Begins The Army Corps of Engineers is taking soil samples to determine types of walls that would be compatible with various geographic regions of the border. The Rio Grande Valley Sector is scheduled to get 32 miles of border wall and 28 miles of a levee wall. The House Appropriations Committee approved $1.6 billion for the construction of a wall. The scope of the wall has been changed. It won’t be a 2,000 mile long wall. Instead it will be a series of border walls where they are necessary. Mountains and rivers provide natural barriers according to President Trump. The president speculated that the government would only need to build 700 to 900 miles of wall. The construction of prototypes will get underway in the next few months.

Private Citizen Displaces Government http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5104-Private-Citizen-Displaces-Government A private citizen in Toronto spent $550 to build a set of stairs in a community park so neighbors would not risk falling down a steep path. Area residents are happy that the stairs have been installed. “We have far too much bureaucracy,” said resident Dana Beamon. “We don’t have enough self-initiative in our city, so I’m impressed.” And the city of Toronto is not happy about it saying that the stairs are not built to regulation standards. Apparently the incline is not even, there is no foundation, and the railing is unsafe. City officials insist that the man should have waited for the city to spend $65,000 to have the stairs built. The mayor has asked that city workers revise the estimate because he thinks the $65,000 price is too high as well.

President Trump Chides Republican Senators http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5102-President-Trump-Chides-Republican-Senators President Trump berated Senators on Wednesday over their failure to take action on health care legislation. “I’m certainly disappointed. For seven years, I’ve been hearing repeal and replace from Congress. I’ve been hearing it loud and strong, and when we finally get a chance to repeal and replace, they don’t take advantage of it,” said the president. President Trump tweeted that, “They MUST keep their promise to America!” President Trump was insistent that the August recess be cancelled saying, “We shouldn’t leave town until this is complete. We should hammer this out and get it done.” When Republican senators knew that President Obama would veto repeal legislation, Republicans were able to get enough votes to pass the Senate. Now that President Trump is willing to sign repeal legislation, Senators are backing off of their promises to repeal Obamacare. Senators Murkowski and Capito both voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015. Now they are working hard to find reasons to support Obamacare.

Alan Gottlieb, Executive Vice President of the foundation, said, “This amounts to coercion, with a child as their bartering chip. I cannot recall ever hearing anything so offensive and egregious, and we’ve handled cases like this in the past.

ICE to Employ Thousands of Agents to Sanctuary Cities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5098-ICE-to-Employ-Thousands-of-Agents-to-Sanctuary-Cities President Donald Trump has authorized the hiring of 10,000 more Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents and according to ICE director Thomas Homan, thousands of them will be dispatched to sanctuary cities like Austin, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York City. Homan says that Trump has taken the “handcuffs” off of his agents and they are now in a position to enforce the law, even in cities that are intent on protecting illegal aliens, including those who have committed other crimes.

This policy represents a complete reversal of the Obama catch and release policy that many experts contend caused American citizens to be needlessly robbed, killed by drunk drivers, or even murdered by people who were in this country illegally.

The violations were of the Hatch Act that prohibits federal employees from campaigning for or against candidates during an election cycle. The main union for postal workers, the National Association of Letter Carriers systemically had employees put on unpaid leave in order to work in the Clinton and other campaigns.

The employees participated in canvassing, manned phone banks, and engaged in other campaign activities and were paid by the union for their time. All of this clearly violates the Hatch Act.

Terrorist Rehabilitation Fails in Minnesota http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5093-Terrorist-Rehabilitation-Fails-in-Minnesota In 2014 a member of the Somali community in Minnesota was found guilty of trying to give support to and join ISIS. However, instead of sentencing 21 year old Abdullahi Yusuf to a lengthy prison term a federal judge decided to send him to “terrorist rehabilitation”, something that most Americans have never heard of. The reason for that lack of knowledge is the apparent fact there is no real program for terrorist rehab.

Offenders are sent to some counseling sessions, and then to a halfway house where they are told to “play nice”. When Yusuf was found watching an ISIS video in his halfway house he was accused of violating his parole. The liberal judge sent him back to try again. The problem is that most military and intelligence experts agree that you can’t rehabilitate jihadists.

Susan Rice Congressional Testimony Postponed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5091-Susan-Rice-Congressional-Testimony-Postponed Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice has postponed her scheduled testimony before a Congressional committee about her involvement in the “unmasking” of American citizens. Unmasking occurs when the name of American citizens who were overheard talking to someone who is under surveillance by U.S. Intelligence agencies is revealed.

This is not supposed to happen if the citizen is not part of the investigation, and if the person is unmasked it must be on the specific request of someone entitled to receive the name. However, even in that case the person’s name cannot be revealed to the public. Yet, that is apparently what Susan Rice did and now it appears that she will have to be subpoenaed by Congress in order to get her testimony.

When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State she actively opposed legislation to impose sanctions on Russia for Human Rights violations. It is suspicious that this occurred just a few weeks before Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow.

That and the fact that a group connected to the Democratic National Committee worked with the Russians to prepare what turned out to be a phony dossier on then candidate Donald Trump certainly makes many people think of collusion.

Government Jobs For Illegals http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5089-Government-Jobs-For-Illegals Democrats and Republicans worked together to insert a measure into the 2018 spending plan that would allow young illegal immigrants to get work with the federal government. Now staffers on the appropriations committee are working to rip out the legislation. The amendment was adopted by a voice vote rather than a recorded vote. So the identity of the Republicans who voted for it has not yet been discovered. The House Committee on Rules will have to declare the amendment out of order. Then a legislator would have to ask that the amendment be taken out of the bill. And then the House would have to vote on whether or not to overturn the amendment. Republicans in the House of recently voted to allow sex change operations for transgender soldiers. And Republicans joined with Democrats to prohibit the military from studying a link between Islamic doctrine and terrorism.

Trump Threatens Sanctions Against Venezuela http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5088-Trump-Threatens-Sanctions-Against-Venezuela President Trump said that the United States would impose “strong and swift economic actions” if Venezuela’s leader creates a non-elected “constituent assembly.” Voters rejected the Venezuelan leader’s plan to rewrite the constitution. 98 percent of voters voted against the proposal. President Trump said, “Yesterday, the Venezuelan people again made clear that they stand for democracy, freedom, and rule of law. Yet their strong and courageous actions continue to be ignored by a bad leader who dreams of becoming a dictator.” “The United States will not stand by as Venezuela crumbles. If the Maduro regime imposes its Constituent Assembly on July 30, the United States will take strong and swift economic actions. The United States once again calls for free and fair elections and stands with the people of Venezuela in their quest to restore their country to a full and prosperous democracy.” In February, President Trump invited the wife of Venezuela’s imprisoned opposition leader to the White House. The Venezuelan government shifted the opposition leader to house arrest.

General Motors Can’t Sell It’s Chevy Bolts http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5087-General-Motors-Can’t-Sell-It’s-Chevy-Bolts The Chevy Bolt was hyped as the first electric car in the United States that offered a 200 mile driving range and was thought to be affordable at $35,000. However only 7,500 were sold in the first six months of 2017. Dealers have 111 days worth of inventory on their lots. General Motors extended a shutdown of the plant that manufactures the Bolt so as to be able to sell down GM’s inventory. Politicians and leftist groups have been pushing car companies to create electric cars. Other than allowing well heeled leftists to virtue signal, electric cars have a limited market. An electric vehicle that has a 200 mile range may be interesting technology, but most consumers likely find it impractical.

Austrian Woman Attacked By Offended Somali Migrant http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5086-Austrian-Woman-Attacked-By-Offended-Somali-Migrant Ingrid T., a woman in Vienna, was speaking with neighbors while her dogs accompanied her. An approaching Somali woman stated, “These animals are unclean.” According to Ingrid, the Somali “grabbed me, spun me around and scratched me.” Both women fell to the ground. Three men pulled the attacking Somali off of Ingrid. But she was unable to feel her legs. At the hospital, Ingrid had to have two surgeries, one of which required the replacement of her knee. Her attorney was not sure who would pay for the damage, noting “This will probably be a precedent.” Recently, Austria has threatened to close its border with Italy if the influx of migrants does not stop.

More Seasonal Visas Not Needed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5085-More-Seasonal-Visas-Not-Needed The Department of Homeland Security reported on Monday that it will increase the number of H-2B visas by 15,000 for fiscal 2017. The Economic Policy Institute released a study on the H-2B visa program that allows seasonal workers into the United States. The Institute said that the additional visas are not necessary. Despite good progress in reducing unemployment, “many other labor market indicators signal an economy that still has some way to go before genuine full employment is attained.” “The unemployment rates in all of the top 10 H-2B occupations in 2025-2016 were above the national unemployment rate in 2016 of 4.9 percent. Seven of the 10 occupations had very high unemployment rates of between 7.78 percent and 10.64 percent.” President Trump’s nominee for U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services has been held up by Senator Thomas Tillis of North Carolina until Homeland Security Secretary Kelly increased the number of H-2B visas.

Repeal Obamacare Bill May Be Dead http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5084-Repeal-Obamacare-Bill-May-Be-Dead The attempt to fully repeal Obamacare and replace it over a two year transitionary period may not go forward. Three senators have come out against the idea. Two of the three senators, Shelley Moore Capito and Lisa Murkowski voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015. Susan Collins was the only Republican to vote against repeal in 2015. When Senators Capito and Murkowski knew President Obama would veto the legislation, they supported repeal. Now that there is a president in the White House who will sign repeal legislation, the two women senators are back peddling fast. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky is urging Senator McConnell to hold a vote on the repeal so that all Republican senators will be put on the record of supporting or not supporting Obamacare.

Political Correctness Goes After Advertising in Britain http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5083-Political-Correctness-Goes-After-Advertising-in-Britain Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority is cracking down of “gender stereotypes.” “Portrayals which reinforce outdated and stereotypical views on gender roles in society can play their part in driving unfair outcomes for people.” But somehow imposing tougher advertising standards will “tackle inequalities and improve outcomes for individuals, the economy, and society as a whole.” Problematic ads might include depicting “family members creating mess while a woman has sole responsibility for cleaning it up.” Suggesting “an activity is inappropriate for a girl because it is stereotypically associated with boys.” Or an advertisement featuring “a man trying and failing to undertake simple parental or household tasks. One member of the European Parliament tweeted, “worrying (that Advertising Standards Authority) seeks to socially engineer advertising: fast and decency yes; not sinister thought police please.”

Russia Demanding Diplomatic Properties Be Returned http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5082-Russia-Demanding-Diplomatic-Properties-Be-Returned Russia is upping the heat on the United States to return Russian diplomatic property that the U.S. seized after expelling 35 diplomats. The Russians were expelled by former President Obama after Russia was accused of somehow hacking the 2016 presidential election. Russian officials met with U.S. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon to discuss the return of the diplomatic property. After no agreement was reached, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that Russia reserved “the right to take retaliatory measures.” The U.S. State Department said that the talks had been “rough, forthright, and deliberate, reflecting both parties’ commitment to a resolution. More work needs to be done.”

Millennial Success Track http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5081-Millennial-Success-Track A study of Millennials done by the Institute for Family Studies concludes that 97 percent of Millennials who get a high school degree, work, and then marry prior to having children are not in poverty by the time they reach ages 28-34, and 86 percent are at least middle class. Commonly called the “success sequence”, the pattern also holds true for minorities. 76 percent of African Americans and 81 percent of Hispanics who followed the same track are in the middle or upper third of income distribution. “Given the importance of education, work, and marriage—even for a generation that has taken increasingly circuitous routes into adulthood—policy makers, business leaders, and civic leaders should work to advance public policies and cultural changes to make this sequence both more attainable and more valued,” conclude the report’s authors.

The child underwent a brain scan as well as a six hour examination. According to his preliminary conclusions, Dr. Hirano put the chance of the treatment being successful between 11 and 56 percent. And he hopes that Charlie Gard might experience improved muscular strength. Speaking for the family, Alasdair Seton-Marsden said, “Today, Charlie’s case has moved from the chances of this ground-breaking therapy working from being as close to zero, as to make no difference to, according to the expert evidence that’s been heard in court, to a small but significant chance.” Dr. Hirano will deliver his observations and conclusions before the British court that will make a determination whether or not the child will be permitted to go to the U.S. for treatment.

Jane Sanders Claims Investigation of Her is Sexist http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5079-Jane-Sanders-Claims-Investigation-of-Her-is-Sexist Bernie Sanders was the hero of the far left during the 2016 Presidential campaign, but his star is quickly being tarnished by the investigation into him and his wife over the alleged bank fraud committed by Jane Sanders when she was involved with a now defunct private college. She initially claimed the investigation was a GOP plot because the man who convinced the FBI to launch an investigation into her actions was Brady Toensing, the Vice Chairman of the Vermont Republican party.

When that failed to slow down the investigation she started claiming that the reason for the investigation is sexism. However, the Sanders story had started raising red flags before Toensing really became involved. As the investigation continues things are not looking good for Jane Sanders or her husband.

The organization has launched a counter attack claiming that the Washington Post is destroying American journalism.

The Post recently criticized the NRA for a video with former Navy Seal Dom Razo foe being too political and barely mentioning firearms. WAPO called it too “dark” At the same time the paper refuses to even mention the radical left that repeatedly advocates violence against conservatives including the assassination of the President and Republican members of Congress.

Republicans Vow Resistance to Socialist “Fairness” Tax http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5077-Republicans-Vow-Resistance-to-Socialist-“Fairness”-Tax The state of Washington and the city of Seattle in particular seem intent on becoming a “socialist paradise” like Venezuela and Cuba even if it bankrupts the city and destroys the economy. First, the far left city council imposed a $15.00 minimum wage that has already backfired as businesses either cut back on employees or reduce their hours in order to say in business,

Now the City Council has decided that hard working citizens who create the jobs in the city should be punished for their success by paying a “fairness tax” that requires individuals to pay a 2.25 percent tax if they make more than $250,000 a year. Similar taxes have been turned down by voters, and violate the state constitution, and other state statues. Republicans are urging residents to use civil disobedience to resist the tax.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, describes himself as a Libertarian, and that generally means he is a fiscal conservative, but more liberal on social issues.

Leftists like Senator Elizabeth Warren see him as the same type of threat that Donald Trump turned out to be. Other liberals have expressed similar sentiments, and seem particularly upset by the fact that he is a celebrity, but not a liberal elitist like they believe he should be.

She is clearly trying to position herself to be a Democrat candidate for President by trying to me more obnoxious than Elizabeth Warren.

Republicans and conservatives are upset over his inability to put together legislation that could be supported by enough Republicans to pass a repeal and replace bill. Both Republicans and Democrats have complained about so much being done in secret.

This is ironic since when Obamacare was passed it was drawn up in secret and many Democrats voted for legislation that they had not even read. What McConnell will do next is unknown, but his options are certainly more limited as a result of this failure.

Muslim School Taken Over by British Government http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5073-Muslim-School-Taken-Over-by-British-Government A Muslim secondary school in Britain has been taken over by the Government. The school was put into “special measures” last year after a child died of an allergic reaction and after books were found in the library advocating rape. An inspection found other issues including poor instruction, a chaotic playground, and staff that was untrained as to what to do in a medical emergency. Although the school is mixed, the children are segregated by sex. The school was given a judgement of “inadequate,” the lowest ranking possible. If the findings are upheld by an appeals court, the ruling might open other Muslim schools to government inspection.

Judge Watson in Hawaii expanded the term broadly so that it effectively nullified the Supreme Court’s ruling.

The amendment would have required the Pentagon to study the use of “violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging and justification.” Muslim groups argued that the amendment would unfairly target Muslims. “If you have an amendment that says we’re going to study one religion and only one, we’re going to look at their leaders and put them on a list — only them — and you are going to talk about what’s orthodox practice and what’s unorthodox, then you are putting extra scrutiny on that religion,” said Representative Keith Ellison.

The Horrific Jeff Sessions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5068-The-Horrific-Jeff-Sessions Attorney General Jeff Sessions is planning to increase civil asset forfeiture. Asset forfeiture allows police to seize property without evidence of a crime or criminal charges. At a meeting of the National District Attorneys Association, Sessions said, "In addition, we hope to issue this week a new directive on asset forfeiture—especially for drug traffickers. With care and professionalism, we plan to develop policies to increase forfeitures.” "No criminal should be allowed to keep the proceeds of their crime. Adoptive forfeitures are appropriate as is sharing with our partners," Sessions said. Asset forfeiture has been significantly abused. Because no charges are required, police departments can simply seize property for their own benefit.

The sanctions will target Iran’s ballistic missile program. Iranian military officials threatened to attack U.S. military forces around the Middle East if sanctions are imposed. American officials believe that Iran is “the most dangerous threat to U.S. interests.” Because the proposed sanctions are outside of the scope of the nuclear deal, the United States has legal standing to impose the sanctions. The White House plans to certify that Iran is still in technical compliance with the nuclear deal. However, Iran has not been forthcoming about key details of its nuclear program and engages in activities that might be violating the agreement.

A Hindu extremist group, Rshtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), is believed to be behind the murder. The group had opposed the celebration. Members had accused the minister of paying for conversions to Christianity. In addition to pastoring the church, the minister ran a school for impoverished children in the town.

This is on top of the 66,000 that are available every year. The department is saying that this is a one-time increase. H-2B visas allow companies to hire low skilled, low-wage workers for such jobs as house keeping, bar tending, landscaping, and construction. Businesses must affirm that they will “suffer irreparable harm” or financial loss if they do not receive the H-2B visas. Under the rules, businesses must advertise first for American workers.

Senator McConnell has threatened to start negotiating with Democrats if Republicans don’t find workable legislation. Late Monday night, Senator McConnell released a statement saying that the Senate will vote on “a repeal of Obamacare with a two-year delay to provide for a stable transition period.” The 2018 mid-term elections will be a referendum on repealing Obamacare.

Climate Scientist Changes his Predictions http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5063-Climate-Scientist-Changes-his-Predictions Almost 30 years ago Climate change scientist James Hansen claimed that within 20 to 30 years parts of New York City would be underwater. Then in 1998 he claimed that there were be global temperature rises of 4 to 5 degrees by 2018. None of this has happened, but this so called scientist has revised his predictions. He now predicts that the disastrous flooding will occur in 50 to 150 years and the temperature rise sometime in the next century

He also states that the failure of the temperature to rise so far has been due to the ice melting in the artic. It is being pointed out that several decades ago these same scientists were predicting a new ice age, then that was changed to massive global warming, and then suddenly it became the generic climate change of an unspecified nature.

This will certainly be touted as a major victory by Chuck Schumer and the Democrats and a major defeat for Republicans who have been winning elections for years on the promise to repeal the disastrous law that is quickly collapsing. It was also a major part of the successful Trump campaign.

The next step is unclear although many members of Congress will probably advocate moving on to other major issues like tax reform and infrastructure in order to get something major accomplished before the 2018 election.

This would replace the duly elected National Assembly that actively opposes the Maduro dictatorship.

Under the socialist regime Venezuela has been in a state of continuous economic crisis with many people unable to find food or their families. This has been accompanied by political repression that has resulted in the deaths and arrests of thousands of people who dare to oppose the regime. Unfortunately, this has gone mostly unreported by the liberal news media in the United States, because they are trying to promote socialism here.

The grenade killed U.S. Army medic and Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speers and blinded Sgt. 1st Class Layne Morris. Khadr was captured and sent to Guantanamo Bay where he was interrogated by members of the Canadian military and admitted committing the attack.

Years later he recanted his confession and was sent back to Canada to serve out a reduced sentence. Then a Canadian court ruled that his confession had been coerced and ordered him released despite other overwhelming evidence of his guilt. Now far left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, acting on his own, has apologized to the terrorist and ordered that he be paid the equivalent of $8,000,000 U.S. dollars for his ordeal. The Canadian public is outraged.

Another Major ISIS Leader Killed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5059-Another-Major-ISIS-Leader-Killed The aggressive approach taken by President Trump to fighting ISIS and other terrorist organizations has apparently paid off one again. The ISIS commander in Afghanistan has been killed by a U.S. military strike just three months after taking command. This and other recent victories over ISIS is reported to have come about because Trump has turned his military commanders loose to make the kind of decisions that need to be made in the field, not micromanaged by civilian bureaucrats in the White house like what Obama was doing.

With U.S. commanders able to make the split second decisions to strike targets of opportunity more ISIS leaders can expect to be taken out.

​College Says “Hate” FB Posts are Okay if Directed against Whites​ http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5058-​College-Says-“Hate”-FB-Posts-are-Okay-if-Directed-against-Whites​ Johnny Williams is an African American professor at Trinity College in Connecticut who posted several profanity and hate filled tirades against white people on his Facebook page in June. Among other things he echoed the hope of others that Representative Steve Scalise would just die after his attempted assassination.

He later claimed to have received death threats and apologized for the posts. However, requests were made that he be disciplined by the college. The college administration refused stating that the posts did not violate school policy and was protected by “academic freedom rules”. Many people are wondering if the same outcome would he been reached had this been a white professor making similar statements against minorities.

Trump Energizes Border Patrol http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5057-Trump-Energizes-Border-Patrol According to Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, border patrol agents are more energized than he has ever seen in the past twenty years. He points out that under the Obama catch and release program agents were not allowed to do their jobs and morale was very low.

Now under President Trump’s more aggressive approach to defending the border apprehensions have fallen by over 60 percent because people know that if they are apprehended trying to cross our southern border illegally they will be detained and deported. This has apparently become a great deterrent.

It is only the first step in getting the funding passed, but now it has been learned that plans for construction have already started. The first section of the wall is being built on federal land in south Texas.

This section of the wall has been in the planning stage for several months and will actually begin in January 2018. It will be near McAllen, Texas, a Texas town on the border that has been a focal point for illegal aliens and drug dealers for years.

Nancy Pelosi has another Embarrassing Moment with the Press http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5055-Nancy-Pelosi-has-another-Embarrassing-Moment-with-the-Press For the second time in less than a week House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi stumbled her way through a statement to the media. This is becoming more frequent with Pelosi slurring and mispronouncing words, losing her train of thought and often forming incoherent sentences. There is some concern that she may have had minor stroke and be trying to hide the effects.

This is all adding to the concern among many Democrats that she has lost her ability to lead and as a result is at least partially responsible for the fact that Democrats have been defeated in all four special House elections that have been held since the presidential election.

Women’s March against Gun Rights Hires Armed Guards http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5054-Women’s-March-against-Gun-Rights-Hires-Armed-Guards In what many are calling a brazen show of hypocrisy, leaders of the recent Women’s March against the NRA and gun rights reportedly hired armed guards to protect them during the protest. Of course, the purpose of the march was to attack the National Rifle Association (NRA) for its support of the rights of law abiding American citizens to own firearms to protect themselves, and their families.

It is also pointed out that this is typical of the liberal elites in this country who believe they are entitled to tell other people how to live their lives. Rosie O’Donnell, who is vehemently anti-gun, once defended her use of armed guards by saying she was entitled to be protected because she was a VIP.

The American is Xiyue Wang, a 47 year old Chinese born U.S. citizen who is a researcher for Princeton University. The Iranians are still emboldened over the Irani treaty entered into by the Obama administration that included millions of dollars in ransom for the release of other falsely imprisoned Americans.

They have also seized American sailors and harassed U.S. Navy warships. They apparently believe that the United States is still too weak and timid to stand up to the terrorist regime.

The proposed investigation appeared to be an attempt to try to claim that such news sites were somehow influenced by Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election.

The proposal was to make new rules applying only to such conservative news groups. The Republicans felt this would be a clear effort to stifle free speech and freedom of the press in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The problem is that none of the payees had social security numbers, which is a violation of federal law. The investigation also found that none of the original paperwork had been kept, as also required by law. It is believed that many of these payees may be illegal aliens and if nothing changes the payouts of taxpayer dollars will continue.

Bipartisan Support For Keeping Big Government http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5049--Bipartisan-Support-For-Keeping-Big-Government As the federal budget gets pieced together, Republicans are disregarding the Trump Administration’s proposals to slash discretionary spending by $57.3 billion. Instead, Republicans in Congress “have become increasingly bipartisan in trying to restore discretionary spending when it comes to federal jobs.” The Trump Administration wanted to close the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii and reduce staffing for the National Tsunami Warning Center in Alaska. Even though the monitoring system is highly automated, Congress has voted to keep the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center and keep the 40 jobs that the Trump Administration had slated for elimination.

War Against Brexit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5048-War-Against-Brexit Former Prime Minister Tony Blair is in an all out war against Brexit. The former Prime Minister said “I think it’s possible now that Brexit doesn’t happen.” “I think it’s absolutely necessary that it doesn’t happen because I think every day is bringing us fresh evidence that it’s doing us damage economically, certainly doing us damage politically,” said Blair. However, unemployment in Britain is now at a 43-year low. And Britain and the United States are working on a major trade deal. Additionally, Australia wants a trade deal with Britain. Public polls in April and June show strong support for Brexit with only 22 percent wanting to remain with the EU.

Italy Considers Nuclear Option http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5047-Italy-Considers-Nuclear-Option Italy has received such little assistance in dealing with the influx of migrants that it is threatening to use the nuclear option. This would mean granting visas to 200,000 migrants who would then have unrestricted access to all of northern Europe. “Letting migrants travel once they reach Italy would create a real problem for our EU neighbors. But I hope it would force France to confront the migrant problem head on,” Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro said. In 2015, the EU said that it would distribute 160,000 African and Middle Eastern migrants from Ital. But only 6,896 have been accepted into Northern European countries. To take some of the burden off Italy, the EU is planning to transport migrants to Europe directly from North Africa.

Charlie Gard, Prisoner of the State http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5046-Charlie-Gard,-Prisoner-of-the-State The Charlie Gard case raises significant issues about parental rights in Britain and Europe. The National Health Service (NHS) assert that Charlie Gard’s parents have no rights. Against the parent’s wishes, the courts have appointed a social worker to act as Charlie’s legal guardian in legal matters. The parents argue that they are the legal guardians of their child. The NHS insists that it has the right to take Charlie Gard off of life support so he can “die with dignity.” And it argues that the parents may not have input into the decision making process. An American neurologist, Professor Michio Hirano, will come to Britain on Monday to give his assessment of Charlie Gard. Hospital officials don’t want the parents to be present during the assessment. Seton-Marsden, a spokesman for Charlie Gard’s parents said, “I would maintain [this case] raises very profound moral and political questions as to who a child belongs.” “Whose child is he? Is he the state’s child? Is he the NHS’s child? Or does this child belong to the parents?”

The financial industry in the City of London provides £66 billion to the Exchequer. “They are crystal clear about their underlying objective: the weakening of Britain, the on-going degradation of the City of London,” said the memo’s author. The French are offering money to firms if they will leave the City of London and relocate to the European Union. Former Home Office Minister Jeremy Browne said that the government must fight back by “putting some more balls back on the other side of the court."

Russian Attorney Spent Big With Taxpayer Dollars http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5044-Russian-Attorney-Spent-Big-With-Taxpayer-Dollars The Russian attorney at the center of an investigation into Donald Trump Jr. was in the United States for three days in October 2015 for depositions. After the federal judge in the case ruled that the federal government would reimburse her costs for the trip, attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya managed to incur $50,365.72 in expenses. She switched hotels, finding one for $995 a night and presided over a $793.29 dinner for five individuals. Additionally, she was reimbursed for airfare and interpreter services. During her work she was neither deposed nor did she attend the depositions in person. When people have to pay their own expenses they are far more frugal. When taxpayers are underwriting the cost, people spend with reckless abandon.

Political Correctness In London http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5043-Political-Correctness-In-London London politicians are seeking ways to become more inclusive. The latest scheme involves replacing “ladies and gentlemen” with “everyone” and “all.” "We want everyone to feel welcome on our transport network," Mark Evers, director of Transport for London's customer strategy. The push to do away with “ladies and gentlemen” was pushed by London’s LGBT community of activists. "Language is extremely important to the lesbian, gay, bi and trans community, and the way we use it can help ensure all people feel included," said a spokesperson for Stonewall, an LGBT charity. London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Kahn supports the gender inclusive language. Perhaps as a “precedent and groundwork for future blasphemy laws.”

Citizenship Battle in Italy http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5040-Citizenship-Battle-in-Italy Soil Born Citizenship is at the heart of big debate in Italy. Should the children of migrants who are born on Italian soil have automatic citizenship rights? Currently, children born of at least one Italian parent have that right. Pending legislation in the Italian parliament to grant citizenship to children born on Italian soil has resulted in fisticuffs in the legislative body. The massive influx of migrants into Italy has intensified the debate. In a recent poll, public support for the legislation dropped to 32.3 percent. Adoption of the legislation would confer citizenship to 800,000 children immediately.

Travel Ban Nullified http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5038-Travel-Ban-Nullified A federal district court judge in Hawaii has found a way to nullify the Trump Administration’s travel ban. The Supreme Court’s ruling in June permitted a travel ban provided that those with a “bone fide relationship” could come into the United States. However, the high court left the term vague and undefined. Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, and Alito pointed out this absurdity in a concurrent opinion. The Trump Administration defined the term as restrictively as possible as it rushed to implement the ban. On Friday, Federal Judge Derrick Watson, began expanding the term to include “fiancés, grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.” The expansive ruling nullifies the travel ban.

The recommended policy reads, “Harvard students may neither join nor participate in final clubs, fraternities or sororities, or other similar private, exclusionary social organizations that are exclusively or predominantly made up of Harvard students, whether they have any local or national affiliation, during their time in the College.” Many students have spoken out against the proposed ban. The proposal will have to be approved by the president of the university.

During that same period the Treasury took in $338,660,000,000 leaving a deficit of over $90 billion. This record and excessive spending comes with Republicans in charge of Congress. Congress authorizes spending. Rather than raising taxes or slashing spending, Republicans opted to spend irresponsibly.

But now that Republicans are in charge, Republicans showed that they really love to spend other people’s money.

Snowflake Tells When It’s Okay to Censor Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5029-Snowflake-Tells-When-It’s-Okay-to-Censor-Speech An opinion editorial for the University of Maryland’s student newspaper believes that universities should censor speech when students don’t “feel safe.” Using controversial Palestinian Linda Sarsour as an example, op-ed writer Moshe Klein said, “Sarsour should be allowed to speak even if she says things that make people feel uncomfortable.” However, “[B]ecause of her connections to Odeh, she could genuinely make people feel unsafe. At that point, the discussion isn’t about Sarsour’s personal opinions but whether people will feel genuinely unsafe because of her connections.” But who has the understanding and wisdom “to determine which forms of speech truly pose a risk to student safety?” One student commenter wrote in jest, “Moshe Klein’s opinion makes me feel unsafe. So he should be the first one who is censored, banished from campus and jailed…see how that works?”

Massive Arrests in Health Care Fraud http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5028-Massive-Arrests-in-Health-Care-Fraud The Department of Justice arrested 412 people including 56 doctors for allegedly generating $1.3 billion in false billings to medicaid and other government health services. According to Attorney General Sessions, 295 healthcare providers will be prevented from participating in federal health programs. In addition to fraudulent billings, 120 defendants are charged with improperly prescribing opioid painkillers. This type of fraud happens in a centralized system. Were the federal government to get out of healthcare and stop pumping money into the healthcare industry, this type of fraud would be minimized.

The Dangerous War On Cash http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5027--The-Dangerous-War-On-Cash Visa is giving up to $10,000 to 50 different businesses if they swear off the use of cash. The targeted businesses are restaurants, cafes, and food truck owners. Visa is encouraging the businesses to accept “all forms of global digital payments.” Contrary to the statists pushing a cashless society, cash is important and should be vigorously defended. Cash is private and does not create a permanent record of a transaction. It gives people a way to reduce their exposure to the broader financial system. When you put your money into a bank, it is no longer your money. It is the bank’s money. Banks are hardly pillars of virtue. They are often fined, prosecuted, and investigated for fraudulent behavior. Why would anyone want to be a part of that?

Trump Gets Money for Border Wall http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5026-Trump-Gets-Money-for-Border-Wall A House Appropriations Committee allocated $1.6 billion to a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border on Wednesday. “Keeping Americans safe by protecting our homeland is a top priority. This funding bill provides the resources to begin building a wall along our southern border, enhance our existing border security infrastructure, hire more border patrol agents, and fund detention operations, “ said Chairman John Carter. President Trump will be able to tell his base of supporters that another promise has been kept at least in part. It remains to be be seen if President Trump will find a way to get the country of Mexico to pay directly or indirectly for the wall. Senator Kamala Harris of California vowed to block funding for the wall calling it a “waste of money.”

Bill To Restrict Funding For Fetal Tissue Research http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5025-Bill-To-Restrict-Funding-For-Fetal-Tissue-Research A House subcommittee which oversees the budget for the National Institutes of Health is considering legislation that would restrict federal funds from being used “to conduct or support research using human fetal tissue if such tissue is obtained pursuant to an induced abortion.” The NIH spent $107 million in fiscal 2017 on research which included fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood operatives were recorded a few years ago speaking of how they sold tissue from aborted children for medical research. David Prentice with the nonprofit Charlotte Lozier Institute believes there are many alternatives to using aborted children’s tissue for research. He suggested adult stem cells and umbilical cord blood stem cells.

Republicans Cut Funding For San Francisco Values http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5024--Republicans-Cut-Funding-For-San-Francisco-Values Republicans have cut funds for the Department of Defense that were designated for sex change operations. The amendment states, “Funds available to the Department of Defense may not be used to provide medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care.” Representative Vicky Hartzler, sponsor of the amendment, said, “Military service is a privilege, not a right. It is predicated on winning wars and defeating the enemy. All decisions on personnel and funding should be made with this in mind.” Of course Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, ripped into the legislation saying, “Republicans should be ashamed: instead of protecting the men and women who risk their lives to defend our freedoms, they are fighting to rip away the health care of thousands of brave service members.” Pelosi is right. Soldiers are in the military to defend American’s liberties. But that does not mean, taxpayers are required to fund the bizarre mutilation of confused men and women.

Southern Poverty Law Center Goes Far Left http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5023-Southern-Poverty-Law-Center-Goes-Far-Left The Southern Poverty Law Center, once a respected civil rights group, has been lurching to the far left for years. Now it has entered into the cultural wars by branding Christian groups, constitutional conservative organizations, and anyone who disagrees with their leftist agenda as haters. According to the SPLC if you support traditional marriage or support freedom of religion and freedom of speech, you are part of a hate group.

They have even branded constitutional law firms such as the United States Justice Foundation as hate groups because they defend Constitutional rights. Many people believe the SPLC has lost any credibility it had as a legitimate civil rights organization.

Trump Border Wall Passes First Hurdle http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5022-Trump-Border-Wall-Passes-First-Hurdle The House Appropriations Committee has given a major victory to President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico to stem the tide of illegal aliens, drugs, guns, and human trafficking crossing the southern border. The committee approved the entire $1.6 billion appropriation needed to begin construction of the wall.

Of course, this is only the beginning. Now the appropriation must pass the entire House of Representatives, which may not be a sure thing because some Republicans oppose it, and all of the Democrats want an open border. The same is true in the Senate.

NRA Fights Back http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5021-NRA-Fights-Back The National Rifle Association has been under attack by the left for years. Every time there is a mass shooting in the United States the NRA is blamed by the liberal media because the NRA opposes gun control and supports the Second Amendment Right of Americans to keep and bear arms. These claims continue despite the fact that no NRA member has ever been involved in any of the incidents. Even attacks by Islamic terrorists are blamed on the NRA.

Now the organization that represents over five million gun owners is fighting back with a series of ads showing how gun ownership can be effective in protecting Americans in their homes and businesses. They also point out that liberal attacks are based on false assumptions and claims.

DACA Program Faces Possible Fatal Court Challenge http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5020-DACA-Program-Faces-Possible-Fatal-Court-Challenge During the last two years of his second term as President Barack Obama signed an executive order creating the DACA program, also known as the DREAMer’s program. It allows over 800,000 illegals who were brought into the United States as children to apply for work permits and stay in the country.

Now at least nine other states have joined the State of Texas in preparing a lawsuit in federal court to challenge the Executive Order as an unconstitutional abuse of power by Obama. Even defenders of the program are acknowledging that the premise of the suit is probably correct, and that Obama had no authority to issue such an order. The suit will probably be successful.

Nancy Pelosi has another Bizarre Press Conference http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5019-Nancy-Pelosi-has-another-Bizarre-Press-Conference The actions of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at press conferences have become increasingly bizarre lately. She has often appeared bewildered by routine questions, keeps referring to President Trump as President Bush, and will often lose her train of thought. Yet, her most recent appearance before the media is the strangest yet.

When asked about the celebrations in North Korea after the recent ICBM launch Pelosi started giggling uncontrollably. Then after appearing to regain her composure and emitting a deep sigh into the microphone she answers the question by saying that she is one of the few members of Congress that has actually visited the North Korean capital. That was of course, no answer at all.

It appears that the phony Trump Russian dossier that was created by the Fusion GPS Corporation that is an opposition research firm funded by the Democrat National Committee. The preparation of the dossier that is still being cited by some Democrats in Congress, despite it being totally discredited, was done with information provided by the Kremlin.

The school was hauled into court to explain its terrible slight. School officials explained that the photographer was not available in the morning but rather in the afternoon when the sisters and their mother were at the mosque for prayers. The court found that this was an act of deliberate discrimination and ordered that the school pay the sisters €500 a piece. During the trial, the mother said, “Do you know how it feels when your five-year-old daughter enters the classroom every day looks at the picture and asks, ‘Mommy, why I’m not here?’ and you can not explain it to the child?” The leader of the Dutch anti-immigration party asked whether the presiding judge was “crazy” and should be suspended.

On Wednesday police in Berlin raided several homes that are believed to be connected with the theft of a 221 pound Canadian gold coin. Two suspects were arrested and taken into custody. The coin was not found. The coin was stolen from a museum in March. Thieves broke into the museum in the middle of the night and used a wheelbarrow to cart off the coin. Police suspect that the coin was melted down. It had a face value of one million Canadian dollars. It’s gold content was worth about $4.5 million U.S. dollars.

The Inspector General’s office found Schwarz’s complaints valid. However, recommendations for improvement and quality control were largely ignored by the Navy. Schwarz has appealed his firing. The government’s internal federal watchdog is investigating Schwarz’s firing as an act of retaliation.

Police came and captured the intruder. Lest the Hoi Polloi get any ideas that firearms might stop crime, police Lt Mark Hudson said, “In this kind of case, where something happened on Wednesday and then he comes back on Sunday, it shows that this thief wasn’t too concerned about people being home – a ‘hot prowl’ case.

Republicans Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5012-Republicans-Learned-to-Stop-Worrying-and-Love-Obamacare Senator Rand Paul is predicting that Obamacare is here to stay. While Republicans were a majority in the House and Senate during the Obama Administration, they felt brave when they could demonize Obamacare without actually doing anything about it. Even though they controlled the spending, they still funded the program. Now that Republicans are in charge, they’ve written a bill that does not repeal Obamacare, but instead gives billions to Big Insurance. Taxes funding the program are here to stay. Regulations are still in place. Bailouts for insurance companies are still around. In fact, according to Senator Paul the GOP bill expands many aspects of Obamacare. Republicans are effectively a minority party whose members prefer to caterwaul than to govern.

Article of Impeachment Filed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5011-Article-of-Impeachment-Filed A Democrat congressman filed an article of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday. Representative Brad Sherman, enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame, gave three reasons to support his impeachment effort: Emails released by Donald Trump Jr, show the Trump campaign was eager to get help from Russia. The president was seeking to hide something when he asked former FBI Director Comey to let Flynn off. And the firing of Director Comey was an obstruction of justice. So far the effort has the support of one other congressman. Democrat leaders in the House and Senate have sought to tamp down talk of impeachment.

Warren tweeted, “Every Senator – no matter the party – should step up and fight for the millions of babies like Peter who can’t speak for themselves.” Does that include the million little boys and girls who lose their lives each year because of abortion? Not likely. Planned Parenthood and NARAL have given Warren a 100% rating for her commitment to kill the unborn. Elizabeth Warren is a political opportunist who used the story of a pre-mature little boy to shill for bigger government and less freedom and liberty. The faux Indian Senator has no concern for the millions of voices who have been eternally silenced.

The numbers don’t count business that closed or contracted due to an inability to comply with Obamacare. Author of the study, Professor Casey Mulligan of the University of Chicago said, The ACA is an important reason why the growth rates of employment, wages, productivity, and GDP continue to be substandard. Maybe it is time for repeal.”

But being the liberal city that Seattle is, one deep thinking city councilman fears that cleaning the sidewalk might be a microaggression. Councilman Larry Gossett said “he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.” Construing that cleaning a sidewalk to rid it of human waste is somehow racist or insensitive is just nuts.

Many of these were videotaped by the surveillance systems on the trains, but BART authorities are refusing to release them to the police. They maintain that such a release might cause “racism” among passengers who have been victimized by these teenagers.

This means that in the name of political correctness BART officials are willing to allow innocent passengers to be robbed and perhaps even injured or killed because they won’t help the authorities identify and apprehend the perpetrators.

However, he was back in the country again, despite a previous criminal conviction. This time he got drunk, drove a van at speeds of at least 100 miles per hour on a highway in Nebraska, crashed into another vehicle, and killed one person and severely injured another person.

A two million dollar bond has been set for the offender, Nemias Garcia-Velasco, because the prosecutor feared he might go back to Mexico. This type of thing is happening so often that many Americans are wondering when it is going to stop.

Russian Lawyer Given Special Permission by Obama DOJ to Enter U.S. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5004-Russian-Lawyer-Given-Special-Permission-by-Obama-DOJ-to-Enter-U.S. An extraordinary revelation has come out about the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. prior to the election. She had previously been denied a visa to enter the United States. However, the Department of Justice under Loretta Lynch found that there were “extraordinary” circumstances present and allowed her to enter the country without a visa. The reasons for this action, that is very rare, are murky at best.

However, it is known that while she was here she met with members of Congress, including both Democrats and Republicans to discuss American adoptions of Russian children. She also met with journalists and Obama State Department officials and ultimately with Donald Trump Jr. This has led some people to wonder if there was collusion between Trump and the Russians, or perhaps between the Democrats and the Russians.

Now he has actually come out and blamed Trump for the collapse of the subway system in New York City.

This is just part of the resistance movement pushed by Schumer because Trump has proposed a trillion dollar infrastructure plan that would assist New York. However, Schumer and other Democrats are opposing the plan for the bizarre reason that it does not provide federal funding of abortions. New Yorkers are probably asking what that has to do with subways.

The attack occurred on Monday night and the damage to the building was minor and there were no injuries. However, this is the second incident in the past few weeks since a nearby National Guard recruitment center was also vandalized.

These incidents could be motivated by ISIS or other foreign terrorists or simply by the anti-Trump rhetoric that led to the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise and others by a Bernie Sanders supporter. In any case, it needs to be taken seriously.

This had led to the creation of “safe spaces” where students and faculty can hide and be counseled to help them through the trauma of seeing Donald Trump’s name scrawled on a wall, or hearing someone speak out against abortion or in favor of the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

The bill has been met with less than enthusiasm by many other Democrats.

Only one other member of the House has co-sponsored the legislation, Rep. Al Green of Texas. Other Democrats including Nancy Pelosi appear to be concerned that since there is no real evidence that Trump has committed the high crimes or misdemeanors required for impeachment that the whole thing could backfire on them.

Aircraft on the ship will now be tracked digitally instead of manually. The ships catapults are electromagnetic powered instead of steam powered. The ship can generate 13,800 volts of electricity versus 4,160 volts in other carriers. Instead of having 100 hot water heaters, the new carrier has 16. Living space for sailors has increased substantially. The improvements mean that the ship needs 600 fewer sailors to run it.

Path To Defunding Planned Parenthood http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4997-Path-To-Defunding-Planned-Parenthood Texas may have found a way to partially defund Planned Parenthood. The state is asking the Trump Administration to approve its request to exclude abortion providers from receiving federal Medicaid funding.

By excluding abortion providers, Texas would be able to get $35 million a year that the Obama Administration withheld because Texas refused to fund Planned Parenthood. Texas would use the $35 million to fund its own Healthy Texas Women program.

Migrant Politics in Poland http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4996-Migrant-Politics-in-Poland The Polish political party, Civic Platform, announced plans to reveal a “list of cities and regions which are willing to host migrants.” However, the plan fell through as local political leaders refused to support the plan. Poland has refused to allow Muslim migrants to be settled in its territory. Political leaders have pointed out the terror attacks in other European cities as a reason to refuse the resettlement of Islamic migrants. Civic Party spokesman Jan Grabiec said, “We want Europeans to know that Poles are not racists who are afraid of refugees.” A recent survey of Polish citizens found 57 percent of those interviewed would rather give up EU development funds than to give up control of its borders.

Pork No Longer Served In Government Schools in Salzburg http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4995-Pork-No-Longer-Served-In-Government-Schools-in-Salzburg Sharia law won’t be imposed on the West by Muslims. It will be imposed by leftists groveling before Muslims. In Salzburg, Austria pork has been banned in city-run kindergartens. Officials with the mayor’s office said that pork had been banned for health reasons and “among other things, the needs of Muslim children.” The issue of serving pork in school meals is becoming an issue as the Muslim population has exploded in Europe. Pork products have been used in protests around Europe to oppose the building of Mosques.

Charlie Gard Gets High Level Support http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4994-Charlie-Gard-Gets-High-Level-Support Vice President Pence was interviewed on a nationally syndicated radio talk show on Monday. During his interview, he brought up Charlie Gard’s struggle for life. “We hope and pray that little Charlie Gard gets every chance,” said the vice president. The vice president said that he was praying that the family would be permitted “to choose the greatest extent of life-saving treatment that’s available to their child.” A hearing for Charlie Gard is scheduled for Thursday with a possible decision on Friday. Catherine Glenn-Foster of Americans United for Life said, “That very institution hired to care for Charlie is trying to strip him of his rights and his parents of their rights to even just take him to get a second opinion.”

Locals Save Drowning Family http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4993-Locals-Save-Drowning-Family At Panama City Beach, Florida 80 passersby figured out how to save nine members of a family who were in the process of drowning. 80 beachgoers formed a human chain under the direction of Jessica Simmons. “These people are not drowning today. It’s not happening. We’re going to get them out,” Simmons said. While Simmons and her husband swam out to the struggling family, 80 people formed a human chain that stretched more than 100 yards out into the water. Simmons and her husband passed the struggling family members to the people in the chain who hauled them to shore. Remarkably this was all done by people volunteering their time and effort to solve a serious problem. Government was not involved. If people had waited for government to show up, many people would have died. Imagine millions of Americans creatively thinking and working together to solve problems specific to their communities, all without the help or hinderance of government bureaucrats.

Seattle Creates Local Income Tax http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4992-Seattle-Creates-Local-Income-Tax Seattle Washington is become quite the socialist haven. The City Council imposed a $15 an hour minimum wage on businesses. Many restaurants have closed down because they cannot afford the labor cost. Now the City Council has approved a proposal to impose a 2.25% income tax on people who make above $250,000 a year. While the tax is estimated to bring in $14 million a year, it would cost $10 million to $13 million to implement. After that it would cost $5 million to $6 million to manage and enforce. The tax law is expected to be challenged. State law forbids municipalities from implementing local income taxes. 11,000 people might be affected by the new tax.

Congressman Calls For Comey’s Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4991--Congressman-Calls-For-Comey’s-Investigation Representative Ron DeSantis, Chairman of the House National Security Subcommittee, is urging the Department of Justice to investigate James’ Comey’s leak of classified information. Comey said that he’d leaked the memos in order to initiate the appointment of a special counsel to investigation President Trump. "If he did violate any laws, he needs to be held accountable. If you're violating laws in service of doing political warfare, that is just absolutely unacceptable, particularly for someone who held such a high position in the government,” said DeSantis. Speaking of Comey, "This guy is really a creature of the swamp. He maneuvers around D.C. in ways that are very similar to how D.C. insiders operate," DeSantis said. The congressman also urged the Trump Administration to fire officials who were appointed under the previous administration. DeSantis speculated that they are leaking and working to undermine the Administration.

Healthcare Sparring http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4990-Healthcare-Sparring The U.S. Senate will stay in session an additional two weeks to work on developing a health care bill that will have the support of 50 Senators. A group of 80 conservatives have created their wishlist of items to be included in a revised bill. Conservatives want more consumer choice, real flexibility for Medicaid, free market principles in the healthcare market, and control the long-term spending of Medicaid. Conservatives are also interested in the Curz-Lee amendment that gives healthcare companies the ability to offer non-compliant Obamacare healthcare plans alongside compliant plans. Some conservatives are recommending that Obamacare be fully repealed and that replacement legislation be considered later.

Donald Trump Jr. Accused of Treason http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4989-Donald-Trump-Jr.-Accused-of-Treason In another hysterical left wing reaction to the “Russia” scandal Virginia Democrat Senator and former candidate for Vice President Tim Kaine has accused Donald Trump Jr. of treason. This is based on an apparent meeting the Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer prior to the election. The lawyer claims no connection to the Russian government, but there is some indication that the younger Trump thought she might have information damaging to Hillary Clinton.

It turns out that she had no such information, and while the meeting might have been ill advised, there was absolutely nothing illegal about it. Kaine’s claim that it constitutes treason shows his unwillingness to even read and understand the Constitution. Treason is narrowly defined as waging war against the United States or providing aid and comfort to the enemy. That obviously has not occurred.

The police again showed their disdain for the mayor by turning their backs on him when he spoke at the funeral of an officer.

When he was running for mayor and after being elected de Balsio was openly critical of the police department and spoke favorably about violent anti-police groups like Black Lives Matter. After two of New York’s finest were killed in an ambush in 2014 hundreds of officers claimed that the mayor did have their backs. Now the same thing has happened at the funeral of 48 year old officer Miosotis Familia. Shortly after she was killed de Blasio flew to Germany to join in left wing political protests at the G-20 Summit.

United States Conducts Successful Missile Defense Test http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4987-United-States-Conducts-Successful-Missile-Defense-Test The U.S. military has confirmed a successful test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system near Kodiak, Alaska. The defensive missile succeeded in shooting down an intermediate range ballistic missile that was launched from near Hawaii. This is significant since most of the missiles in the North Korean arsenal are short or intermediate range missiles.

However, the troubling fact remains that the most recent test conducted by the North Koreas was of an Intercontinental Ballistic missile (ICBM) that flies higher and farther and is capable of carrying a larger nuclear war head. The U.S. military has not recently conducted a successful test of a missile capable of taking down an ICBM.

The independent group says that he was killed in a Russian airstrike on ISIS headquarters in Syria and the Russians seem to have confirmed it. If true, this would be a major blow to the ISIS terrorist organization and comes after the Iraqi army has liberated the northern Iraq city of Mosul.

It also comes at a time when the ISIS de-facto capital in Syria is surrounded by U.S. supported Kurds and free Syrian troops. American commanders in the field have stated that they have not yet independently confirmed the death.

China Launches Verbal Assault on U.S. http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4985-China-Launches-Verbal-Assault-on-U.S. The Communist Chinese government in Bejing has launched an all-out verbal assault on President Trump for trying to pressure it to do something about the growing threat of North Korea. China has been propping up the North Korean dictatorship for decades, and in fact trade between the two nations has increased this year by 40%. China is also accused of laundering money for the rogue regime.

According to a statement issued by the Chinese government the tensions with North Korea are not its responsibility, and it does not intend to do anything to try to defuse the situation. This will probably cause Trump to go forward with various sanctions against China such as limiting their access to U.S. banks.

The increased cost of living is another reason why some older Americans are working. Some older Americans are switching from traditional jobs to self-employment. But see a sharp decrease in their earnings. Average annual income drops by just over $18,000.

A spokesman for the Secretary of State’s office did not have an explanation. According to the Public Interest Legal Foundation, it’s more likely that between 70 and 90 percent of eligible people would be registered to vote. Unexplained discrepancies in voter registration raise questions in the minds of watchdogs.

The scandal plagued VA is actively demoting, removing, firing, and suspending employees. In June, Congress passed legislation to make “it easier to [the VA] to fire employees for misconduct while better protecting staffers who bring wrongdoing to light.” Secretary David Shulkin has begun publicly sharing weekly updates on “adverse employee actions.” Shulkin said, “Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we’re doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent. Posting this information online for all to see, and updating it weekly, will do just that.” If all Senators and Representatives had to get their healthcare from the VA, reformation within the bureaucracy might happen even faster.

The new draft would strip out the amendment proposed by Senators Cruz and Lee. The amendment would allow insurance companies to offer free market insurance plans alongside an Obamacare compliant plan. If you like your Obamacare, you can keep your Obamacare. But because healthy young people would more likely choose the cheaper insurance, Obamacare premiums would rise as people would no longer be forced into those plans. Republicans promised to repeal Obamacare for seven years. Now that they have power, voters have found out they were lied to. Republican leadership actually likes Obamacare.

This is after the uninsured rate hit a low of 10.9 percent in 2016. Contributing to the increase in uninsured people are rising insurance premiums, companies leaving the Obamacare marketplace, and the lack of competition. Another big contributing factor is the uncertainty around the future of health care. Republicans promised for seven years that if they had power, they would repeal Obamacare. They have not been forthcoming on that promise. The plan proposed by the Senate has stalled.

Jane Sanders overstated the amount of pledged donations so the college could secure the loan. “Sanders signed a document saying that the college ‘expects to receive pledged amounts’ of about @2.27 million.” Two members of the Vermont’s bond issuing agency considered the balance sheet of Burlington College “not all that strong” and voted against the proposal. Just months after the loan went through, college trustees saw that donations were not coming in. During a board investigation, trustees found “Multiple donors were saying they had never committed to those amounts.” The loan became too much of a financial burden and drove the school to shut down in 2016.

The new secretary David Shulkin has been aggressively moving to clean up the VA that during the Obama administration was allowed to falsify treatment records of veterans and scores, maybe even hundreds were allowed to die while awaiting treatment.

Under Obama no one was fired because of this. Offenders were either transferred or in one case put on administrative leave with full pay. The American Federation of Government workers actively worked with Democrats to cover up the bad behavior at the VA and keep union members from being terminated. Those days appear to have ended.

On the MSNBC morning show from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. the murder was not deemed worthy of even being mentioned and on CNN the story only received ninety seconds of coverage.

The focus, as usual was on criticism of President Trump, members of his administration, and Republicans in Congress. Questions of law and order and even the murder of police officers was apparently of no concern despite the fact that such murders up 18% from the same period last year.

Dallas County Commissioner Votes Against Honoring Slain Police Officers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4970-Dallas-County-Commissioner-Votes-Against-Honoring-Slain-Police-Officers In a move that shocked even many of his own constituents, black Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted against what was considered a ceremonial resolution honoring the five Dallas police officers killed a year ago in an ambush while ironically they were protecting a Black Live Matters march. In a nutshell, Price’s justification for his no vote was that since all of the killed police officers were white, they deserved what they got and should not be honored.

Several years ago Price was charged with numerous federal crimes including bribery and fraud. In a trial that many considered a sham because of the obvious bias of a liberal federal judge in favor of the defendant, Price was found not guilty on most charges, and the jury could not reach a verdict on four others. Maybe the court of public opinion will reach a different verdict after this latest outrage.

What is not being widely reported is that a large number of U.S. cities and even some states are facing the same possibility.

Cities like Chicago, Hartford, Connecticut, and even New York City have serious financial problems as do states like Illinois, California, and Oregon.

Democrat Senators say that the White House has not done enough to consult with them on choosing judicial nominees. White House officials say they have reached out to Democratic senators, but that the senators “frequently fail to return our calls, don’t respond to our inquiries and otherwise avoid our constant overtures.” By custom, senators can effectively veto a nominee from their home state who does not meet their approval by refusing to return a blue slip to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Republican leadership may have to alter the custom and proceed with hearings and votes.

The attorney was promising to provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Three members of the Trump campaign met with the attorney to hear her out. Trump Jr., said that he was asked by a mutual acquaintance to meet with the attorney. So far there is no evidence that Trump Jr. knew he was speaking with an agent of the Russian government. According to Trump Jr., the attorney was unable to provide any information about Hillary Clinton and went on to speak about Russian adoptions.
The meeting ended after 20 or 30 minutes. A spokesman for President Trump’s legal team said, “…we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier.”

Union Irked By Non-Union Goats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4965-Union-Irked-By-Non-Union-Goats Western Michigan University is using a herd of 20 goats to eat poison ivy and invasive species. "Not wanting to use chemicals, either, we chose the goat solution to stay environmentally friendly,” said a representative for the university. However the union representing the government workers filed a formal grievance. A union representative said that the goats are taking jobs that laid-off laborers should be doing. The union disputes that humans could not just as easily remove the poison ivy. The university representative pointed out that goats were first used in 2016 and no grievance had been filed. The university denies that it violated the collective bargaining agreement.

Comey Memos http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4964-Comey-Memos During his testimony former FBI Director, James Comey, said that he considered the memos that he’d written his own personal documents which is why he felt he could share them with a lawyer friend at Columbia University. Yet the FBI is claiming that the memos are government documents. Four of the seven memos contain information considered “secret” or “confidential”. What is not clear is whether the classified information was considered classified at the time they were written. Comey turned the memos over to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. James Comey may end up being investigated whether or not he mishandled classified information in his personal memos.

Teen Suspended For Buying Brownie For Police Officer http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4963-Teen-Suspended-For-Buying-Brownie-For-Police-Officer Zack Randolph works for Great American Cookies at the Katy Mills Mall in Texas. He purchased a brownie at full price with his own money for an officer who regularly patrols the mall. “He’s just a really nice guy and on top of that he has a badge. That’s enough for me to buy him something. That’s the least I can do,” said Randolph. Apparently feeling entitled, the next customers in line asked for a free dessert. And when denied, they got upset. One of the customers went so far as to almost come behind the counter. He was stopped by the assistant manager and a co-worker. The company wrote up Randolph and suspended him for a week and threatened him with being fired if he did something like that again. News of the injustice spread rapidly on social media and Great American Cookies reversed the suspension and write up saying, “We owe the employee an apology.”

Charlie Gard’s Parents Deliver Petition http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4962--Charlie-Gard’s-Parents-Deliver-Petition The parents of Charlie Gard delivered a petition to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. The more than 350,000 petitioners asked that Charlie be taken to the United States to undergo experimental treatment. According to Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the parents of Charlie, seven doctors from around the world believe that the experimental treatment might be able to help their child. Chris Gard said that his son should have had the treatment a long time ago. On Monday there will be a court hearing to determine if Charlie can be permitted to undergo the treatment. The parents have raised about £1.3 million pounds so their child can undergo the treatment. However the government run healthcare system in Britain is refusing to allow the parents to fly their child to the United States.

American Nuclear Sites Targeted by Hackers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4961-American-Nuclear-Sites-Targeted-by-Hackers According to reports by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI the attempts by hackers to compromise American nuclear facilities have not abated. The attacks are almost constant and their origins are still unknown. So far the hackers have not succeeded in doing anything to disrupt the facilities, but that is probably the ultimate goal.

Cybersecurity experts have been saying for years that America is woefully behind in protecting our computer networks from cyberattacks. This applies not only to nuclear facilities, but to government networks at all levels and American financial institutions.

Black Lives Matter Sued by Wounded Police Officer http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4960-Black-Lives-Matter-Sued-by-Wounded-Police-Officer On July 17, 2016 a lone gunman ambushed police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, killing three of them and wounding three others, one of them critically. Now one of the wounded officers has filed a federal lawsuit against the radical group Black Lives Matter and five of its leaders. The suit alleges that the ambush was the result of the rhetoric of the BLM that calls for violence against police officers nationwide.

One of the defendants named in the suit is BLM leader DeRay Mckesson who inflamed a crowd in Baton Rouge to riot on July 9th in protest of the shooting of a black man by two police officers. The officers have since been cleared of any wrongdoing by the federal Department of Justice. The suit seeks $75,000 in damages.

ISIS Defeated in Mosul http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4959-ISIS-Defeated-in-Mosul It was certainly notan easy victory, but three years after it was captured by the Islamic State the Iraqi city of Mosul has been liberated by the Iraqi army backed by special forces units from the American military as well as artillery and air support. This represents a major blow to the vicious terrorist group and comes when U.S. backed Kurd and free Syrian forces have surrounded the de facto ISIS capital in Raqqa, Syria.

These defeats will hopefully have a negative impact on the ability of the Islamic extremist group to recruit fighters from other countries, train them, and then send them back to their country of origin to engage in acts of terrorism.

Mayor de Blasio Shows Where His True Allegiance Lies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4958-Mayor-de-Blasio-Shows-Where-His-True-Allegiance-Lies Shortly after a Bronx police officer with three children was murdered in an ambush, the person who claims to represent the people of New York City turned his back on the men and women in blue, and the citizens of his city. The death of a police officer was not nearly as important to Mayor Bill de Blasio as attending a far let political protest at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. The protestors, made up primarily of socialists, communists, and anarchists were exactly the people that de Blasio owes his true allegiance to.

He used his speech to criticize President Trump and support the anti-capitalist agenda of the protestors. He has been highly criticized by people all over the political spectrum, but seems totally unconcerned. He seems proud to have shown his true allegiance.

Sharia Law Advocate Calls for Jihad Against Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4957-Sharia-Law-Advocate-Calls-for-Jihad-Against-Trump One of the darlings of the leftist in the United States is a Muslim woman named Linda Sarsour. She was one of the organizers of the Women’s March against Trump and has been embraced as a leader by the feminist movement. The irony is that she is an avid advocate for Sharia law to be imposed worldwide. Under this strict Islamic law women are virtual slaves. They cannot go to school, cannot have a job, cannot drive a car, and cannot even appear in public unless accompanied by a man. None of this seems to bother the leftists.

Now Sarsour has called for a Jihad against President Trump, his administration, and presumably anyone who supports him. Jihad is shorthand for the type of violence used by ISIS and other radical Islamic groups. Apparently, that is okay as far as the left is concerned.

More Americans Buying Guns as Leftist Violence Increases http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4956-More-Americans-Buying-Guns-as-Leftist-Violence-Increases As the radical left continues to call for violent protests, and even revolution they are creating unintended consequences. Patriotic Americans are reacting by buying firearms at another record rate. The sales for the first quarter of 2017 are just below the first quarter of 2016, when many people were concerned about rising violence against police officers, and in various American cities.

Americans are showing that they will not stand by idly as their families and homes are threatened and in addition their country is in peril. This does not bode well for the revolution that cannot rely on the millennial snowflakes, or the Hollywood and east coast elitists to actually fight in a “revolution”.

Migrants who are under age receive preferential treatment and have a better shot at getting asylum. Now the Swedish National Board of Forensic Medicine is saying that 86 percent of those claiming underage status are actually adults. MRI’s of the knee joint, and x-rays of the wisdom teeth were used to make the evaluations. This new information may help speed up the deportation of migrants back to their homes.

The parents of Charlie Gard have raised over £1 million to pay for experimental treatments for their son. Because of the public intervention of Pope Francis and President Trump, the British hospital has backed off on its plans to turn off Charlie Gard’s life support system.

Texas amended the law and eased some of the photo ID requirements. Now voters without a government ID can cast ballots if “they sign an affidavit attesting to a reasonable impediment in obtaining a photo ID.” In a motion filed in federal court, the DOJ said that the amended stature “removes any discriminatory effect or intent the Court found … and advances Texas’s legitimate ‘policy objectives in adopting a voter ID law.”

Senate May Settle for Fixing Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4952-Senate-May-Settle-for-Fixing-Obamacare Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, is threatening his fellow Republican Senators saying that if they don’t pass a version of the Senate healthcare bill, he might have to work with Democrats to strengthen Obamacare. “If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur. No action is not an alternative. We’ve got the insurance markets imploding all over the country, including in this state,” said McConnell. Senator Cruz said that if Republicans cannot agree upon a replacement, then they should just repeal Obamacare outright and create a replacement later. Démocrate Senator Schumer said that he found McConnell’s statement encouraging and wants to strengthen and improve Obamacare.

Fight Club In The Skies http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4951-Fight-Club-In-The-Skies A Delta Airlines passenger will face federal criminal charges. Joseph Hudek IV allegedly assaulted and injured a flight attendant. About one hour into the flight, Hudek rushed towards an exit door and tried to open it, managing to get the lever half-way up. A flight attendant asked for help from area passengers. One passenger said, “I tried to choke him and he just threw me off like a rag doll.” Hudek punched a flight attendant twice in the face. Another passenger was successful in hitting Hudek on the head with a bottle of wine, breaking the bottle. A passenger and flight attendant were able to put Hudek into a headlock and restrain him long enough to secure him with zip ties. He had to be restrained while the flight returned to Seattle and landed. Police entered the cabin, handcuffed him and secured him to a wheelchair with zip ties. He was able to turn the wheelchair over in the middle of the terminal, all the while screaming for help. An injured flight attendant and passenger were taken to the hospital for treatment.

On June 2nd, Freeman went to a neighbor’s house and found Leland Foster in the process of drowning his three month old twins and threatening to murder their mother. Freeman shot Foster to get past him so he could render aid to the twins and prevent him from “getting back up to harm anyone anymore.” The mother of the twins said that Freeman “saved their life and that she was glad that he did or they would have all been dead…Leland was going to drown the babies and the knife was meant for her.”

California Democrats Sue Recall Organizers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4949-California-Democrats-Sue-Recall-Organizers Democrats are suing three members of the Cal State Fullerton College Republicans. The suit alleges that voters were misled by conservative activists who were gathering signatures to recall State Senator Josh Newman. The suit claims that recall organizers told voters that the recall would repeal the gasoline tax. When Democrats saw that recall organizers were able to gather almost 85,000 signatures, Democrats changed the rules for signature verification, contribution limits, and tried to push back the time frame of the election. One of the defendants in the case, Amanda McGuire, said “the lawsuit is a shameful and frantic attempt to silence voters of the district. The intimidation tactics espoused by the California Democrats should no longer be tolerated. It's gone too far when college students are being dragged into court for becoming involved with the issues faced by their local cities.”

The Malaysian group, Perkasa, represents a half-million Muslims. The organization is urging the Malaysian government to revoke the trading license granted to Starbucks as well as other Western companies that champion same-sex marriage. Homosexuality is illegal in Malaysia and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. An analyst at the Eurasia Group though a boycott would not be popular. He thought the boycott attempt showed “a growing tendency toward conservatism and strict adherence to Islamic principles.”

Sanctuary State http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4945-Sanctuary-State California is moving to become a Sanctuary State. The California Values Act would prevent state and local law enforcement from cooperating with the “Trump Deportation Machine.” Assemblywoman Eloise Gomez Reyes said, “California must send a clear message that we will remain the last line of defense against the fear-mongering and xenophobia. Rather than addressing the failure of policy, the federal solution has been to demonize our immigrant communities.” The California Sheriffs Association president, Bill Brown, said “We believe this bill provides sanctuary to criminals and makes our communities less safe.” If the legislation did become law, it would be in conflict with federal law. Federal legislation “bars states from creating laws that restrict communication with federal law enforcement agencies.”

In a hearing in February, where Mann’s attorney asked for an adjournment of an upcoming trial, the judge granted Dr. Balls request for Mann’s data, documents, and computer codes used for constructing the hockey stick graph. Mann has refused to comply with the judge’s order.

Now the state legislature has passed a bill to roll back the $10/hour minimum wage and make $7.70 the uniform rate across the state. Governor Greitens said that he will let the bill become law without his signature. The rollback will be effective August 28th. “This increase in the minimum wage might read pretty on paper, but it doesn't work in practice. Government imposes an arbitrary wage, and small businesses either have to cut people’s hours or let them go,” said the governor. The governor went on to say, “Our state needs more private sector paychecks and bigger private sector paychecks.”

The top rate of income tax is 46.7 percent. When the price of oil dropped, the Norwegian government cut taxes and began using the country’s sovereign wealth fund. Liberals said that the tax cuts would create inequality and help the rich. In response, Norway’s government created a way for people who felt guilty about not paying enough in taxes to pay more. “If anyone thinks the tax level is too low, they now have the chance to pay more,” said Norway’s Finance Minister. In one month, the fund has collected $1,325.

The report concludes that there has been an average of one leak every day. The leaks are likely coming from holdovers from the Obama administration that are intent on undermining Trump.

The leakers are giving information to members of the liberal media who then report on it even though many of the leaks contain classified information that can endanger the national security of the United States. Not only is this endangering American lives, but it is also a violation of federal law. In some cases it can even be considered treason under the definition in the Constitution.

The protestors refused to leave the premises of his office after being ordered to do so, and one of them stated that they would take better aim than the shooter who shot Representative Steve Scalise and several other people at a practice for the Congressional baseball game.

This comes the same day that Scalise underwent emergency surgery for complications from an infection caused by the shooting. It also comes after several so called left wing “journalists” and other Democrats either joked about the shooting of Scalise or actually appeared to praise the shooter, a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Trump Donates First Paycheck to Department of Interior http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4937-Trump-Donates-First-Paycheck-to-Department-of-Interior During his presidential campaign Donald Trump promised that if elected he would donate his salary as president to charity. He has fulfilled his promise by donating his first quarter salary to the Department of Interior to help pay for the restoration of the historic Civil War battlefield at Antietam. The President’s donation of $78,333 is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the $12 billion dollars needed, but has already encouraged other donations from other sources.

The battle of Antietam was fought in September 1862 in Maryland and was the single bloodiest one day battle on American soil with over 22,000 casualties on the two sides.

The suit is a class action suit alleging that the affected voters either donated to the Sanders campaign, directly to the DNC, or to other democrat candidates and are entitled to get their money back from the DNC because it rigged the primary elections to support Hillary Clinton.

Since national political parties are supposed to be neutral in primary campaigns, the suit alleges that the DNC defrauded the contributors. This suit would appear to be a major news story and probably would be if it was against the Republican National Committee.

Trump was told by former FBI chief James Comey that he was not personally under investigation in the Russian probe.However, Democrats in Congress are demanding that Trump be part of the probe, and that Mueller investigate Trump for “obstruction of justice”. The fact that seven out of fifteen attorneys hired by Mueller were Hillary supporters and/or Democrat donors has led many people to question whether this is truly a non-partisan investigation.

This ignores the history of these types of protest that have been going on at meetings of national leaders for several decades. They have occurred at Seattle in 1999, and all over the world.

The protests are anti-capitalism, and anti-government in general, and involve the same leftist organizations, and high dollar left-wing donors that finance violent protests in order to push their own political agenda.

More Talk of Removing Pelosi http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4933-More-Talk-of-Removing-Pelosi Nancy Pelosi did not get a ringing endorsement from Democrat Tony Cardenas on Wednesday. Cardenas serves as House Democratic Assistant Whip Representative In an interview with CNN, Cardenas said that the party has to decide whether or not the Democrat Party can move forward with Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader. “No one person is more important than this country. And the bottom line is this, we need to move forward with our best foot forward, with the best plan, with the best individuals, and having the best, honest message,” said Cardenas. Democrats have lost over 1,000 elections since 2010. To gain seats in the House, Democrats have to focus on a clear message and talk about what they stand for.

Dumping Amtrak http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4932-Dumping-Amtrak The Trump Administration plans to get rid of Amtrak’s long-haul service. Only 15 percent of Amtrak’s customers use long-haul services. But the long-haul services use $700 million worth of subsidies. In it’s 46 years and $60 billion in subsidies, Amtrak has never been profitable. It continues to lose more money each year. The company’s on-time performance for long-haul services runs 50 percent. By ending long-haul services, Amtrak’s network would drop to 23 states. The company might have to merge with city and state-run commuter services.

Illinois Credit Rating Under Review http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4930-Illinois-Credit-Rating-Under-Review Moody’s Investor Service placed the general obligation rating of Illinois’ bonds under review for a possible downgrade. Currently, Illinois bonds are one step above junk. The Illinois legislature was in a rush over the weekend and into Independence Day to pass a budget and try to avoid a downgrade. The governor vetoed the budget. The Senate overrode the veto on Tuesday. The House will try on Thursday. Moody’s review process will address Illinois’ underfunded pensions and unpaid bills. If Illinois’ bonds are placed at junk status, it will be the first state to have the distinction.

Rhetoric Heats Up at UN Security Council http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4929-Rhetoric-Heats-Up-at-UN-Security-Council At Wednesday’s UN Security Council meeting, the United States said that it was prepared to use force if needed to stop North Korea’s nuclear missile program. The meeting came just a day after North Korea launched an ICBM that had sufficient range to hit Alaska. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said that North Korea’s actions were “quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution.” Haley said that the United States would soon propose another round of sanctions. If China and Russia did not support the sanctions, the United States “will go our own path.” China has dragged its feet in enforcing sanctions against North Korea. China has the most leverage over North Korea. China’s companies would likely be affected by any additional sanctions.

National Public Radio tweeted out the Declaration of Independence line-by-line. Ideas of liberty and freedom don’t sit well with people dependent upon government. When NPR tweeted out, “it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,” one SJW accused NPR of “calling for revolution.” Another SJW on Twitter thought NPR was hacked. When NPR tweeted about British rule, another SJW tweeted, “are you drunk? Your silly tweets make your state of mind questionable.”

Chaffetz Unloads http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4927-Chaffetz-Unloads Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz took Congressional leadership to task for failing to follow through on its promise to repeal Obamacare. While Chaffetz was in the House, Republicans voted to overturn Obamacare 50 times. The Senate did it once. But everyone knew President Obama would veto the bill. Chaffetz said now that Republicans have all three branches of government, “…we’re not doing anything.” Republican leadership told members that there would be a bill on President Trump’s desk on Inauguration Day. But the legislation never materialized. "And I can tell you, there is a great deal of frustration in both the House and the Senate that there is not yet a bill because it really feels like they haven’t yet gotten together and figured out a plan,” said Chaffetz.

Obamacare Rewards Mediocrity http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4926-Obamacare-Rewards-Mediocrity During the Obama Administration, Health and Human Services created a program to encourage hospitals to “increase efficiency and quality.” The hospitals were graded on quality of care and efficiency. Government bureaucrats ended up awarding bonuses to hospitals even if they had low-quality scores. When bonuses were calculated, a hospital’s efficiency score was boosted if the hospital was missing quality scores. In fiscal 2017, 68 percent of hospitals with missing quality scores received a bonus. 50 percent of hospitals with all the quality scores received a bonus. The median bonus was $67,511.90. HHS is considering revising the way it calculates bonuses.

Resistance to Voter Fraud Panel Requests is Overstated http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4925-Resistance-to-Voter-Fraud-Panel-Requests-is-Overstated According to Kris Kobach, the chairman of the Voter Fraud Panel commissioned by President Trump, the reports by the media of an overwhelming majority of state governments is overstated and amounts to “fake news”. He claims that in fact most states are at least partially complying with the requests for information so far, and only sixteen states are refusing to comply at all.

The mainstream media also continues to state that there is no evidence of any significant voter fraud even after several preliminary investigations. In states like North Carolina and Virginia a significant of non-citizens were found to be on the voting rolls and others were found to be registered in more than one state or district.

Mexico Drug Wars Heat Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4924-Mexico-Drug-Wars-Heat-Up After a limited hiatus over the last several years the drug wars in Mexico have come back with a vengeance with 11,155 people being killed so far in 2017. There are a number of reasons for this including corruption in the Mexican government at every level, the rise of demand for opioids, and the struggle for control of the lucrative drug trade.

The violence is not only taking the lives of rival gang members, but also police officers, reporters, and many innocent civilians. The violence is already spilling across the border and threatening Americans, and many are pointing out that this is another reason for securing the U.S. border with Mexico.

They tracked down the person who had done the video on Reddit, and after receiving an apology, CNN put up a post that appears to threaten the man by saying they will release his name if he posts anything else they don’t like.

Zuckerberg Pushes for Universal Income http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4922-Zuckerberg-Pushes-for-Universal-Income Far left billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is defending his call for every American to get a guaranteed annual income from the government. This call comes as other liberals like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are calling for socialized medicine. What none of these people talk about is where the government is going to get all of the money to pay for this.

They don’t talk about it because the answer is clear, massive tax increases on hard working Americans, to pay for the liberal vision of a perfect socialist society. Some people are suggesting that Zuckerberg use some of his own vast fortune to run a test program. Of course, that won’t happen because the left always wants to use other people’s money.

Kate’s Law would raise prison sentences for illegal aliens who have been deported and who return and commit crimes. The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act would let the government withhold funds from cities which don’t cooperate with enforcement of immigration law.

North Korea said, “[T]he test of an ICBM — the Hwasong-14 — marked the 'final step' in creating a 'confident and powerful nuclear state that can strike anywhere on Earth.'" Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said, “Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world.” Tillerson wants the United Nations Security Council to address the “global threat” posed by North Korea. While North Korea has made significant improvement in its missile capability, the country is believed to still be a long way from being able to fire a nuclear missile over a long distance.

Shifting Taxes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4914-Shifting-Taxes Imagine increasing the top tax bracket to somewhere north of 40 percent. That is what Trump’s advisor, Steve Bannon, is pushing. He’s quoted as saying that he wants the top income tax bracket to “have a 4 in front of it.” Under Bannon’s plan there would not be a reduction in government spending. Instead the tax burden would be shifted to wealthier Americans. Two other Trump advisors, Gary Cohn and Steve Mnuchin, are pushing tax cuts that would increase deficit spending over ten to fifteen years. Increased government borrowing would crowd out private sector borrowing and make the private sector less productive.

The deployment is an effort to block migrants from entering the country. The government promised up to 750 soldiers if additional backup is needed. Austria’s defense minister said, “I expect border controls will be introduced very soon." Austria is holding an election in October. If the government does not show decisiveness on immigration it’s feared that Austria’s Freedom Party could have major electoral gains. Italy has borne the brunt of the migration, taking in hundreds of thousands of migrants. Italy is pressing other European Union countries to share the responsibility and cost.

This time it is the recent election for a member of the House of Representatives in the Sixth Congressional District of Georgia. Despite the fact that the party spent millions of dollars and called in the Hollywood elitists to tell people how they should vote, Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel by almost four percentage points.

Now a suit has been filed by a group calling for the election results to be thrown out because they allege that the system of electronic touchscreen voting in Georgia is flawed. A similar claim was made in court a few weeks before the election and was thrown out by the court. However, this new lawsuit has a familiar new wrinkle; it essentially alleges that the Russians stole the election, but offers no definitive evidence.

Immigration Arrests in San Diego Increase Under Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4910-Immigration-Arrests-in-San-Diego-Increase-Under-Trump The efforts by President Donald Trump to protect the southern border of the United States seem to be paying off in a big way. In San Diego the arrests of illegal aliens has doubled this year as compared to the same time last year. Those arrests have been of illegals that have committed other crimes and those who have outstanding deportation orders signed by a judge.

This appears to be leading directly to the massive drop in the number of people who are trying to illegally enter the country. The number of border apprehensions is down over 60% since Trump took office, and studies are showing that is because individuals from Mexico and central American countries know that if they are caught they will be deported.

Now, the radical and increasingly violent left wing group calling itself ANTIFA is claiming responsibility for the problems. It claims on its twitter account that it has cut fiber optic cables in the Bay Area at least 12 times in the last few months.

The purpose of the attacks according to ANTIFA was to “disrupt internet, mobile phone and 911 services”. This represents not only a threat to businesses, but can cause direct harm to people trying to call for help from the police or medical services. This is openly an attempt to cause injury and possibly death to the citizens of San Francisco. This means that the group is involved in domestic terrorism.

The proposal has drawn negative reactions from some California sheriffs who see the proposal as “political” and “anti-Trump” They believe that it will endanger citizens of their counties and keep the authorities from protecting them effectively.

The law would protect not only people who have violated the law by entering the country illegally, but also those who have committed other crimes. The sheriffs believe this would dramatically increase crime across the state.

This involves an amendment passed in 1967 that allows the Vice President and a majority of Congress to ask for the removal of the President because he is unable to “discharge the powers and duties” of his office.

The proposed bill questions the mental stability of Trump in part because of his “deranged tweets” Of course, there is no possibility that this bill will pass in Congress and certainly Vice President Mike Pence will not sign off on it. It appears to many that this is just another hysterical reaction of liberals who can’t win elections.

The vicious terrorist group first captured the city of January of 2014 and declared it the de facto capital of its “caliphate” Since that time it has brutalized the population, and thousands of people have fled, but there are an estimated 50,000 civilians still trapped in the city.

The U.S. backed forces led by the Kurds have had the city under siege for several weeks and in the last few days made a major breakthrough when coalition aircraft opened up some breaches in the eastern wall of the city. This allowed the coalition forces to pour in and it is now felt that the liberation of the city is imminent.

If the legislation ever passed the House, a commission would have to be formed and the panel would have to have the support of the Vice-President. It’s not clear if Representatives would have to demonstrate mental competence themselves before voting on such legislation.

Freedom of Navigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4900-Freedom-of-Navigation The U.S. Navy sent a destroyer into the South China Sea on Sunday. It came within 12 nautical miles of Triton Island in the Parcel Islands. Triton Island is claimed by China, Taiwan, and Vietnam. China has controlled the island since seizing it from Vietnam in 1971. The freedom-of-navigation exercise took place just after a number of high profile events around China have taken place. President Trump and the Prime Ministers of Korea and Japan agreed to increase pressure on North Korea. On Thursday the White House agreed to $1.42 billion sale of arms to Taiwan. The U.S. Treasury announced sanctions on four Chinese companies that do business with North Korea. And a Senate bill progressed through a committee permitting U.S. naval ships to make regular visits to Taiwan. The White House is pressing China to deal more constructively with North Korea and force the country to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

Fiscal Fireworks in Illinois http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4899-Fiscal-Fireworks-in-Illinois Politicians in Illinois House of Representatives voted to increase the personal income tax rate by 32 percent and the corporate tax rate by just over 33 percent. The tax hike had the support of 23 Republicans. The Republican governor issued a statement saying that he will support the tax increase if it is limited to four years and if there is a four-year freeze in property tax rates. If politicians don’t submit the tax increase with the governor’s qualifications, the governor promised a veto. Bond rating agencies threatened to downgrade Illinois’ bond rating status to junk if there was no budget agreement by June 30th.

Czech Republic On Path To Expand Gun Rights http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4898-Czech-Republic-On-Path-To-Expand-Gun-Rights European governments want to impose greater gun control on European citizens in the face of increased Muslim violence. But the Czech Republic working to become the newest country to enshrine into its constitution the right to bear arms. The legislation reads in part, “Citizens of the Czech Republic have the right to acquire, retain and bear arms and ammunition.” The legislation passed the lower parliament by a vote of 139 to 9. The bill now moves to the Czech Senate where it must pass with a three-fifths supermajority. If it passes the Senate, the Czech president is expected to sign the legislation.

Mainstream Media Already Hate Justice Neil Gorsuch http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4897-Mainstream-Media-Already-Hate-Justice-Neil-Gorsuch President Donald Trump fulfilled one of his most important campaign promises by appointing a constitutionalist, Neil Gorsuch, to the United States Supreme Court. Gorsuch has just participated in a few court decisions so far, yet some of the liberal members of the mainstream media are already getting hysterical. Both CBS and the Washington Post are repeatedly referring to him as to the right or far right, and are even concerned that he may be more conservative than deceased Justice Antonin Scalia.

They seem particularly concerned that he appears to support the First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. However, their major problem is that Gorsuch supports the dreaded Second Amendment right of Americans to “keep and bear arms”.

Former Sanctuary City Provides a Lesson for Other Cities http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4896-Former-Sanctuary-City-Provides-a-Lesson-for-Other-Cities- In 2008 the city of Phoenix, Arizona decided it would stop providing sanctuary to illegal aliens coming across the southern border of the United States. The results have been dramatic to say the least. Since police have been allowed to question the legal status of people they stop for suspicion of crimes; crime overall has dropped by 25 % and in the first year after abandoning the sanctuary city policy Phoenix saw its lowest crime rate in 20 years.

It’s murder rate dropped by 27%, robberies by 23 %, and assault by 13%. Unfortunately, it is doubtful that other sanctuary cities such as San Francisco and Houston, will take heed of this because the political establishment is more interested in protecting illegal criminals than the citizens of their own cities.

California Democrats Fight over Universal Health Care http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4895-California-Democrats-Fight-over-Universal-Health-Care In the state of California that usually seems to take pride in being referred to as the “Peoples’ Republic of California”, an unusual fight has broken out among Democrats. The state senate passed a $400 billion dollar bill establishing a single payer healthcare system, in other words “socialized medicine”. However the bill has been shelved by the Democrat speaker of the state assembly who rightly pointed out that the Senate bill did not provide for any method of funding the system or even how it would deliver its so called benefits.

As a result, the speaker, Anthony Rendon has received death threats and is being widely attacked by the far left. They choose to ignore the fact that California is on the verge of bankruptcy and socialized medicine has failed around the world.

Protestors Rally for Trump Impeachment, but Don’t Know Why http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4894-Protestors-Rally-for-Trump-Impeachment,-but-Don’t-Know-Why Thousands of people have rallied around the country calling for the impeachment of President Trump and some liberal members of Congress have drafted a bill to impeach him, yet no one seems to even know what impeachment is, must less why it is justified. Until the provisions of the Constitution of the United States the President can be impeached for committing “high crimes or misdemeanors”

There has been no evidence that Trump has committed any such crimes, so the calls for impeachment seem to be based on some rather spurious reasoning. For example, Trump should be impeached because he won the election, because he uses Twitter, because he is fulfilling his campaign promises, and the mainstream media doesn’t like him.

Melania Trump Fights Back http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4893-Melania-Trump-Fights-Back As Mika Brezinski of MSNBC continues her often incoherent rants against President Donald Trump she has now picked a fight with the First Lady, and that is one that she will likely lose. Mika has stated that she believes Melania does not like being FLOTUS and will not put up with Donald Trump much longer. Mika also claimed that Melania is only living in the White House to protect her son Barron.

Brezinski claims to know this for a fact because she has a “gut feeling”. Many assume that this is the type of gut feelings CNN reporters had when they ran a story about a meeting that never took place. In any case, the FLOTUS response was short and to the point. She said simply that Mika “doesn’t know her” and that she is only trying to further her own agenda.

However, the Associated Press has done almost exactly the same thing.

The AP ran a report on an alleged meeting between EPA Director Scott Pruitt and the CEO of Dow Chemical Andrew Liveris. The article then went on to imply that something illegal or unethical must have occurred at the meeting. The problem is that it has already been determined that no such meeting took place.

Concealed Carry Reciprocity http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4891-Concealed-Carry-Reciprocity Republican Representative Richard Hudson introduced legislation to make concealed weapons permits valid in all other states. The legislation has gained lawmaker’s interest since the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise. At a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Rahm Emanuel and Bill de Blasio blasted the nationwide push for reciprocity. The two leftist mayors said that the ideas behind national reciprocity “are completely antithetical to all of the efforts to reduce and prevent gun violence.” However, gun violence in Chicago has spiked with street crime and gang killings. Mayor Emanuel has failed to curb crime in his city. The proposed legislation would require that concealed carry holders would have to follow the laws of each state. For instance, some states allow carriers in restaurants where alcohol is served. Other states do not.

The bank is accused of facilitating North Korea’s access to the U.S. and international financial systems. According to the Treasury Secretary, Bank of Dandong has been “facilitating millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.” “The United States will not stand for such action,” said Mnuchin. Additionally, Dalian Global Unity Shipping Company was sanctioned. The company is considered a channel for providing luxury goods to North Korea’s ruling class. Mnuchin made it clear that China was not the target of the sanctions. The Trump administration is seeking to push China to do more to crack down on North Korea’s nuclear missile program.

President Trump tweeted that he did not make or have any recordings. The White House copied the tweets and sent them to the committee to meet the deadline for a response. The chairman and ranking member sent a second letter to the White House on Thursday asking that the White House “appropriately and fully comply with the Committee’s June 9 request.” The Committee is looking for more than recordings. It is looking for “memoranda, or other documents.” If the White House response does not meet the full criteria, the Committee is threatening to subpoena the White House.

The ballot initiative would restore privacy to bathrooms and showers used by women and children. The initiative would cause “all public school facilities such as restrooms, bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, or changing areas that are for use by more than one person at a time [be] designated for use by females only or for use by males only.” The Washington Human Rights Commission issued an edict in 2015 permitting transgenders to use facilities matching their “gender identity”. Haver said that there is a lot of “robust, bipartisan support” for the privacy initiative. But politicians and the media try to keep the opposition quiet.

His parents, Chris Gard, and Connie Yates, raised £1.3 million in private funds to take their child to the United States for experimental treatment. The couple lost a UK Supreme Court battle with the British Health Service to take Charlie to the U.S. The couple appealed to the wrongly named European Court of Human Rights in France. The court denied their plan to take the child to America. The British Health Service argued the Charlie could not be saved in the U.S. and must “die with dignity”. Connie Yates is still determined to help her son. “We just CAN’T let our baby die when there is something that might help him! WE won’t give up on him because he has a rare disease.”

The bill was named after Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant who had re-entered the U.S. several times illegally. A second bill would cut off some funding to sanctuary cities that don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorites The votes were bi-partisan. Michigan Republican Representative Justin Amash voted against both bills, saying that they were unconstitutional.

San Francisco May Pay Illegal Alien $190,000 http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4885-San-Francisco-May-Pay-Illegal-Alien-$190,000 Taxpayers in San Francisco may soon pay an illegal immigrant from El Salvador $190,000. Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno was living in San Francisco, a sanctuary city. After his car was stolen, he reported the theft to police at a station. Apparently someone at the station notified U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. After leaving the station ICE agents arrested him. He was held for two months. His attorneys argue that it was a violation of sanctuary city law for police to have reported him. The San Francisco Police Department said that it is their duty to “foster trust and cooperation with all people of the City and to encourage them to communicate with SFPD officers without fear of inquiry regarding their immigration status.” The SFPD has promised to investigate to see if any policies and procedures were broken. San Francisco supervisors are expected to approve the $190,000 payment.

Candidate Trump spoke several times of wanting to have friendship with the Russian leader. Since the election, relations between the two countries have become strained over supposed Russian influence in the elections. Any meetings with the Russian leader appear to be informal side meetings with no formal agenda set by the Americans. Mr. Putin is expected to be well prepared. In the past, President Trump has said he has no idea if he’ll get along with Mr. Putin. President Trump asked his National Security team to “foster areas of cooperation” with Russia and to “confront Russia’s destabilizing behavior” in the Balkans.

Californians could take them out of state, destroy them, sell them to a licensed firearms dealer, or give them to law enforcement. Many gun owners in California were weighing whether or not to comply with the law. Sheriff Tom Bosenk said, “We’re not going to be knocking on anybody’s door looking for them.”

The group has announced that on July 4th they plan to go to the cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield, burn American and Confederate flags, and desecrate the graves of the men who died in that historic battle. However, this “brave” group may be in for a surprise since if they do show up they may be met by Americans intent on protecting their fallen heroes.

They prefer to call it a “single payer system” that means the same thing; the government will have complete control of the country’s health care system. It will decide who gets treatment, when they get it, and what the treatment will be. Doctors and their patients are subject to the whims of federal bureaucrats.

This is the system that has been in place for years in England, and has proved to be disastrous for the British people. They have long waits to even get to see a physician, and even longer waiting times for life saving treatment. The cost for doing this in the U.S. is estimated to be in the trillions.

Andrew J. Spieles was employed by a group called “Harrisonburg Votes” that is affiliated with the Democrat party. His job was to register as many Democrat voters as possible.

An assistant at the voter registration recognized one of the names on an application as the deceased father of a local county judge. This triggered an investigation that found that not only was Spieles registering deceased individuals to vote, but also filling out registration forms with false names, addresses, and social security numbers.

Protestors gathered outside the Qatar Embassy in Washington D.C. to protest the killing and persecution of Christians in Qatar. The demonstration was led by the National Black Church Initiative to highlight the plight of Middle Eastern Christians. “We will not tolerate any abuse from any government in the Middle East concerning Christians,” said Rev. Anthony Evans. “We will not be silent as our brothers and sisters are persecuted in the Middle East.” Recently Saudi Arabia has accused Qatar of promoting terrorism. The country has taken steps to isolate Qatar diplomatically. The National Black Church Initiative is “a coalition of 34,000 African-American and Latino churches working to eradicate racial disparities in healthcare, technology, education, housing, and the environment.” Christians make up almost 14 percent of the population in Qatar.

The agent did not report that he’d fired the shots and then he lied to investigators about it. Four other agents are under investigation for helping to cover up the shots. The attorney representing the family of Robert Finicum, said that excessive force was used. “Nobody is above the law. The fact that the U.S. Department of Justice stepped in and investigated one of their own and said, ‘You can’t obstruct justice, you’re not above the law’ sends a very positive message.”

The American Farm Bureau Foundation interpreted the regulation to mean that the government could assert regulatory control over “any land surface that had ever experience rain flow, had been flooded, or had irrigation ditches.” Speaker Ryan said, “This regulation would have been a disaster for the West and rural communities across the country, giving Washington near total control over water resources.”

In 2014 the Redskin’s trademark was cancelled by a federal trademark appeal board on the grounds that it disparaged Native Americans. The ruling was supported by a federal district court judge and appealed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. A few weeks ago, the Supreme Court ruled that the Patent and Trademark Office was wrong to deny the mark “The Slants” to a rock group. In light of “The Slants” case, the Department of Justice sent a letter to the Court of Appeals in Richmond asking that the judgment of the district court be reversed and that a judgement in favor of the Redskins be entered.

CNN Russia Story Takes Another Hit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4868-CNN-Russia-Story-Takes-Another-Hit Project Veritas released a second video on Wednesday in their series, “American Pravda: CNN.” The video captured CNN analyst Van Jones saying, “the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.” This comes on the heels of Monday night’s release of a video in which a supervising producer for CNN admitted that the company knows the Russia story has no legs and is being done simply for the ratings. Over the weekend, CNN retracted a Russian investigation story. Three reporters left the company. Project Veritas plans to release a CNN video every day this week.

Ten Commandments Monument Destroyed http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4867-Ten-Commandments-Monument-Destroyed Early Wednesday morning, an Arkansas man drove his vehicle into a granite monument of the Ten Commandments. Michael Reed was promptly arrested. He was charged with trespassing on Capitol grounds, first-degree criminal mischief, and defacing objects of public respect. Reed live streamed the event on Facebook. The monument was erected the day before. It was paid for with private donations of more than $26,000. This is the second time Reed has crashed into a Ten Commandments monument. In 2014, Reed rammed his truck into a monument at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City. Reed has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. He was released from a hospital in January 2015 on condition he received continued treatment and therapy.

Canadian Supreme Court Asserts Worldwide Censorship of Internet http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4866-Canadian-Supreme-Court-Asserts-Worldwide-Censorship-of-Internet The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Google must delete a domain from all its worldwide search results. Not just results in Canada. The case came about when Equusteck Solutions accused a company of selling fake Equusteck routers. After Equusteck won, Google voluntarily delisted the search results for Canadians. Equusteck sued, demanding that the delisting include the entirety of Googles database. The Canadian high court agreed. The court reasoned, that because Google also operates in Canada, Canadian courts have the authority to order worldwide removal of search results. The Electronic Frontier Foundation argued that this would set a dangerous precedent for online speech. Any court in the world could “edit the entire internet” regardless if the content or site was legal in another jurisdiction. This issue is not going away. A court in the European Union heard arguments about extending the right-to-be-forgotten worldwide.

WalMart and Amazon Battle It Out http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4865-WalMart-and-Amazon-Battle-It-Out Walart is telling trucking companies that they must stop moving products for Amazon if they want Walart’s business. Amazon and WalMart are significant users of the trucking industry. This follows on the heels of WalMart telling its tech partners to stop using Amazon’s Cloud Services. Since Amazon is a competitor, WalMart does not want its vendors leaving WalMart data on Amazon’s servers. Amazon’s impeding purchase of Whole Foods will put it into direct competition with WalMart’s grocery business.

Mainstream Media Obsessed with Russia Story http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4864-Mainstream-Media-Obsessed-with-Russia-Story According to information collected by the Media Research Center (MRC) the major news networks have virtually all other major news stories about the Trump administration and concentrated on the alleged Russia/Trump connection despite the fact that there does not appear to be any such connection or collusion. The MRC found that for the last five weeks NBC, ABC, and CBS devoted 55% of their coverage to the Russian stories providing very little coverage to other critical issues such as healthcare, tax reform, and national security.

A prime example is that the MRC found that the networks devoted 353 minutes of coverage to the Russia/Trump stories compared to 47 minutes on the withdrawal from the Paris Climate treaty and one minute to tax reform.

FBI Agent Charged with Lying http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4863-FBI-Agent-Charged-with-Lying An FBI agent that lied about his involvement in the fatal shooting of Arizona rancher Robert “Levoy” Finicum during an alleged attempt to arrest him because he was the spokesman for the protestors at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon. The protestors were opposing the arrest and imprisonment for terrorism of two Oregon ranchers because they had set back fires on adjacent federal property in order to protect their own ranch.

The FBI agent claimed repeatedly that he had not fired any shots when Oregon State Police opened fire on Finicum and his party. It has since been established that he lied because he did in fact fire at least two shots. Joseph Astarita has been charged with three counts of lying to investigators and obstruction of justice.

Colleges Reporting Rising Mental Issues Among Students http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4862-Colleges-Reporting-Rising-Mental-Issues-Among-Students University counselors around the country are reporting larger than normal visits from students with issues ranging from depression to suicidal tendencies. Some are caused by drug and alcohol abuse that in turn may be due to the fact that many of the millennials are not ready to deal with the realities of higher education. They are used to being coddled by their parents and having instant gratification through their use of the internet, smart phones etc.

Now they are faced with the realization that they are incurring big debts by just going to college have considerably reduced prospects for good employment when they graduate. Most will probably make less money than their parents do.

Specifically, Live Action has stated that it is not allowed to run pro-life ads on Twitter, particularly if the ads are critical of Planned Parenthood.

In addition, the group says that while its individual tweets have not being directly blocked it has been told that unless it deletes tweets critical of Planned Parenthood it will not be allowed to advertise at all. Twitter apparently considers all such pro-life tweets “offensive”.

Justice Ginsburg Urged to Recuse Herself http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4860-Justice-Ginsburg-Urged-to-Recuse-Herself Almost sixty members of the House of Representatives have written a letter to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg requesting she recuse herself from further participation in the case involving the travel restrictions imposed by President Trump on people from certain dangerous countries. The rules of the high court require that justices recuse themselves when they have shown a lack of “impartiality” or a “personal bias against one of the parties” to litigation.

Justices are not supposed to get involved in political campaigns, yet during the 2016 presidential campaign Ginsburg made public comments highly critical about Trump. Even the Washington Post and New York Times took her to task for this. The members of Congress think this shows clear bias.

Federal Express has reported some major disruptions, as have some U.S. hospitals, but the most serious aspect of the new wave is the fact that a nuclear power plant was hit.

The hackers did not breach the plant’s computer system that controls the function of the power itself, but the very fact that any kind of breach was made is worrisome to say the least. It is also reported that the system monitoring for radiation leaks at the Chernobyl plant in Ukraine was disrupted by the hackers.

Jewish School Not Cited for Not Pushing Indoctrination http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4858-Jewish-School-Not-Cited-for-Not-Pushing-Indoctrination A private Jewish girl’s school in London does not meet the government’s standards of homosexual and transgender indoctrination. The school failed its third inspection in less than a year. The school stands accused of not embracing “a full understanding of fundamental British values.” Somehow, by not teaching “sexual orientation”, the students “spiritual, moral, social and cultural development” is restricted. It’s not clear what future steps government investigators will take. Closure of the school is a possibility.

Gun Control in California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4857-Gun-Control-in-California California politicians banned high capacity magazines. The law becomes effective on July 1. The law will do nothing to stop criminals, but it will make criminals out of law-abiding citizens. At least one Sheriff won’t be enforcing the law. Sheriff Tom Bosenko of Shasta County said, “We’re not going to be knocking on anybody’s door looking for them.” Californians have four options. They can remove the magazines from the state; sell them to a license firearms dealer; destroy them, or surrender them to a law enforcement agency. The Fourth Amendment gives citizens the right to due process. Chris Lapinski of Last Stand Tactical says, “You can’t just take something away from somebody that the own without violating the Fourth Amendment.”

CNN Pushes Fake News for Ratings http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4856-CNN-Pushes-Fake-News-for-Ratings CNN has been pushing the Russian influence narrative since Donald Trump won the presidency. Project Veritas’, James O’Keefe, says CNN has mentioned Russia 15,694 times since the inauguration. So Project Veritas sent undercover reporters to CNN to find out why. In an undercover interview with CNN Producer John Bonifield, Bonifield says that CNN pushes the Russia narrative because of ratings. “Our ratings are incredible right now.” “Trump is good for business right now.” He said that CNN’s viewers want President Trump scrutinized. But admitted that if CNN had treated President Obama the same way, its viewers would have been turned off. Bonifield said that if there was something on Trump it would have leaked. "I just feel like they don't really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof."

Forcing Abortion on the Culture http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4855-Forcing-Abortion-on-the-Culture A law in Illinois requires doctors to tell patients about abortion options. If the doctor is unwilling to commit the abortion, the doctor or others in the facility “shall” refer the patient to a facility that provides abortion services. Dr. Robert Lawler was interviewed by Fox News Tucker Carlson and said of the law, it’s “a clear violation of our conscience rights. It's truly egregious.” When asked what would happen if a doctor did not comply, Lawler said, “Well, there can be sanctions and penalties, and I suppose eventually, removal of your medical license. I guess that's where this is heading, isn't it, down the road?” The state’s power of licensing and regulation would pit the requirement to “practice medicine competently and completely,” against the right of religious liberty and conscience rights.

Political Theater in the Senate http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4854-Political-Theater-in-the-Senate Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell pulled a vote on the Republican healthcare bill. A vote likely won’t be scheduled until after the Senate returns from its July 4th holiday. At least five Republicans publicly said they could not support the legislation. According to Senator Cruz, Republicans are “actually close to an agreement, but there are some important differences remaining.” If the legislation is changed to accommodate conservatives, McConnell may lose the support of moderates. Republicans will find a way to pass a healthcare bill and call it a repeal of Obamacare, even if the bill retains substantial amounts of Obamacare. Republicans need to be seen as doing something that looks like a repeal. The political cost of not doing so is too great.

European Union Fines Google http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4852-European-Union-Fines-Google Eurocrats levied a fine of $2.71 billion against Google. Google’s “crime” is that favored “its own comparison-shopping service in search results.” The European Union’s chief anti-trust bureaucrat said, “Google abused its market dominance as a search engine by promoting its own comparison shopping service in its search results, and demoting those of competitors.” Under the order, Google must “treat rival comparison-shopping services equally in its search results.” If Google does not comply, the EU may attempt to extract penalties of up to 5 percent of daily global revenue. The EU is also investigating Google’s Android mobile operating system and Adsense service. Google said, “We respectfully disagree with the conclusions announced today.” The company may appeal the ruling. Monopolies tend to fail in the free market. Competition and innovation make any monopolies short lived. Monopolies such as trade unions and protectionist policies tend to be sustained by government intervention.

Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4851-Lifestyle-of-the-Rich-and-Famous Since President Obama became a private citizen, he’s embraced the lifestyle of the one percent. He’s vacationed in the exclusive retreats of the rich all over the world. In Bali he stayed in the Four Seasons hotel where rooms can run $2,000 a night. He’s vacationed at Billionaire Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island where properties can run up a tab of $80,000 a night. "These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. Many of our clients spend tens of thousands of dollars or more to stay at these resorts, which cater to the most discriminating and demanding guests,” said Kendra Thornton, a travel expert. When Mr. Obama vacationed in Italy, his private jet was accompanied by six military jets courtesy of the Italian Air Force. His rented residence included five villas and 22 bedrooms. Mr. Obama has received as much as $400,000 for a single speech.

111 Californians Use Right-to-Die Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4850-111-Californians-Use-Right-to-Die-Law In the first six months of California’s right-to-die law, 191 lethal prescriptions were written, and 111 patients had taken the drugs to end their lives. Patients with less than six months to live can request end-of-life prescriptions from their doctors. Nearly 60 percent had cancer, 90 percent were white, 58 percent were college educated. As of now, writing the lethal prescriptions is voluntary. Religiously affiliated hospitals have not allowed their physicians to write lethal prescriptions. Some families are finding it difficult to find doctors who will write the prescriptions. Under the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Obama Administration used the law to coerce religiously affiliated charities, businesses, and hospitals to underwrite birth control and provide abortion services. It’s conceivable that at some future point, a test case will be designed to force doctors to write lethal prescriptions.

A total of eight Republican Senators have now expressed reservations about the legislation. This creates a serious problem for Republicans who have been winning elections since 2010 based on pledges to repeal and replace Obamacare.

There is growing concern that this is playing into the hands of Democrats who seem to be fine with allowing the total collapse of Obamacare and the entire U.S. healthcare system in order to “protect” their legacy and that of Obama. The consequences to the economy will be devastating, but of course the Democrats and the mainstream media will place the blame on republicans.

These illegals include drug dealers, violent gang members, and potential terrorists.

DHS has solicited bids from a number of different firms to prepare prototypes for the wall to include brick and mortar construction as well as alternate materials and high technology capabilities. According to DHS the goal is to begin actual construction by September of this year.

CNN Fake News Scandal Growing http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4846-CNN-Fake-News-Scandal-Growing During the Presidential campaign, and since Trump’s unexpected victory CNN was one of numerous news organizations accused of being overwhelmingly biased against Republicans in general and Trump in particular. Now there is concrete evidence of this with three CNN staffers having to resign after it was uncovered that a news story posted on the CNN website turned out to be totally false.

The story claimed that a Trump aide, Anthony Scaramucci, met with the head of a Russian investment firm just prior to the inauguration. No such meeting occurred, and the network has apologized to Scaramucci and removed the story from its website. Now, however the fake news scandal is growing with Project Veritas releasing an undercover video with a CNN produced who admits that the Russia story being pushed by the network is mostly BS and is being done to increase ratings.

While Obama drew his “infamous” red line threatening the Syrians if they used chemical weapons, and then did nothing when it occurred; Trump has already responded with a major cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase after such weapons were used. It is doubtful that Trump is bluffing now.

The other bill is the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act” that defunds sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with ICE to apprehend illegals.

Reality Hits Democrats http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4842-Reality-Hits-Democrats Democrats are waking up to reality. Americans don’t care about fantastical stories how Russia may have helped win the election for Donald Trump. While Russian influence stories may motivate Maxine Waters and her base to chant “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” it’s not resonating with most of America. Representative Tim Walz of Minnesota said, “I did a 22 county tour…Nobody’s focusing on that.” The far-left, represented by Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi, are focused on telling their base that the Russians stole the election from Hillary to raise money. But that is not translating into votes and winning elections. Democrats actually have to do the hard work of listening to constituents and forming policies and solutions that speak to their voter’s needs. Representative Tim Ryan said voters are “trying to figure out how they’re going to make the mortgage payment, how they’re going to pay for their kids to go to college, what their energy bill looks like.” House Democrats realize they are in trouble but are at a loss as to how to change their political leadership.

Missing Bishop Forces Vatican to Speak Out http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4841-Missing-Bishop-Forces-Vatican-to-Speak-Out A Chinese Catholic Bishop has disappeared. Bishop Peter Shao Zhumin was “forcibly removed from his episcopal see some time ago,” said Papal spokesman, Greg Burke. “The diocesan Catholic community and his relatives have no news or reasons for his removal, nor do they know where he is being held,” he added. The Chinese government has long asserted the authority to appoint bishops. By appointing clergy, the Chinese government can influence and control church officers. The Vatican does not recognize that authority. There is a split between the underground church and the state approved above ground Patriotic Catholic Association. Increasing numbers of Catholics are choosing to worship in the illegal underground house churches. The disappearance of the Bishop may be an attempt by Chinese authorities to force him to join the state approved Patriotic Catholic Association.

Reporters Resign In Wake of CNN Retraction http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4840-Reporters-Resign-In-Wake-of-CNN-Retraction CNN retracted a story last week that claimed the Senate Intelligence Committee was investigating Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Donald Trump’s transition team, for contacts with a Russian executive at the Russian Direct Investment Fund. On Monday, a reporter and two editors resigned from CNN.
http://www.businessinsider.com/cnn-russia-retracti...

The report relied upon a single anonymous source. An internal CNN investigation concluded that “the retraction did not mean the facts of the story were necessarily wrong. Rather, it meant that ‘the story wasn’t solid enough to publish as-is.’”
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/06/26...

CNN apologized to Scaramucci. Scaramucci tweeted, "CNN did the right thing. Classy move. Apology accepted," Scaramucci said after CNN retracted the story. "Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on." CNN has been accused by President Trump of trafficking in fake news, and he’s refused, at times, to take questions from the news organization.

App Reports Anti-Muslim Bias http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4839-App-Reports-Anti-Muslim-Bias The Council on American-Islamic Relations released a app that will encourage users to report “bias incidents.” The app “offers advice about an individual’s constitutional rights when contacted by law enforcement.” “We urge all American Muslims and their supporters to download CAIR’s app and to take advantage of its much-needed features, particularly the function allowing reporting of bias incidents,” said CAIR’s National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

Fake hate crimes against Muslims have spiked since President Trump was elected in November. A Muslim student in Louisiana made a false report about Trump supporters shouting racial slurs and stealing her hijab and wallet. Police charged her with filing a fake police report.

It’s not known if the CAIR app will discriminate between real bias incidents and fake incidents. It’s not known if the app will accept incidents of Muslim violence such as the London attacks in June.

Governing Deal Signed in UK http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4838-Governing-Deal-Signed-in-UK British Prime Minister Theresa May and Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party agreed to a deal giving the prime minister the political support needed to move her legislative agenda forward in Parliament. Northern Ireland will receive $1.27 billion in new funding and $638 million to develop its infrastructure. The two parties have differences over abortion and same-sex marriage. They did find common ground on national security, Brexit, and NATO spending. The funding for Northern Ireland received criticism. “Where is the money for the Tory-DUP deal coming from?” asked Jeremy Corbin. Sinn Fein objected on the grounds that it threatened the Good Friday peace agreement bringing peace to the long running conflict in Northern Ireland.

Bakery Dispute Heads to Supreme Court http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4837-Bakery-Dispute-Heads-to-Supreme-Court The Supreme Court agreed to hear a religious freedom case in the 2018 term. The Court will decide whether Christian baker can be compelled to violate his religious beliefs about marriage. Jack Philips, a bakery owner in Colorado, declined to bake a cake for a same sex couple’s wedding. The couple “filed a civil rights complaint against Philips and his bakery.” Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission and the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that Philips “violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act.” If the Supreme Court rules against the bakery owner, it will have serious consequences for religious liberty in America. Christians, Jews, and Muslims would be forced to violate their religious convictions. It would effectively hollow out the First Amendment.

Victory At The Supreme Court http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4836-Victory-At-The-Supreme-Court President Trump won a small victory at the Supreme Court on Monday. The Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments in the president’s travel ban executive order in October. It also agreed to a partial implementation of the order. The Court allowed Green Card holders to freely travel as well as people who have “a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” The president issued a statement saying that Monday’s unanimous Supreme Court decision “allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective.” Congress has given the president the authority to restrict the entry of anyone into the United States in the interest of national security. Lower courts have used the president’s heated campaign rhetoric as a basis to prevent the implementation of President Trump’s executive order.

Crackdown On China http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4835-Crackdown-On-China On Tuesday the State Department will unveil its annual Trafficking in Persons Report. It’s expected that the report will declare China to be human trafficking offender. China will be classed as a “Tier 3” country. This ranking indicates that a country is not meeting minimum standards to stop human trafficking or making improvements to stop it. Countries at “Tier 3” classification can be sanctioned and barred from American educational and cultural exchange programs. China is likely to push back aggressively once the report is made public.

Fix Healthcare With Freedom http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4834-Fix-Healthcare-With-Freedom Senator Rand Paul has a plan to fix healthcare in America. His plan used to be a very American idea. An idea that’s fallen on hard times recently. The senator’s plan would use FREEDOM to lower healthcare costs and expand access. Senator Paul said of the Senate Republican plan, “Obamacare is failing in the individual market. But the best way to fix it is through freedom, and everybody seems to be afraid of freedom. What we should do is legalize inexpensive insurance. ” To help people who have pre-existing conditions, the senator would tear down barriers that prevent people from getting group insurance. “Let people in the individual market join a group; let them join the Chamber of Commerce, the NFIB, AARP, Farm Bureau; let them buy group insurance across state lines; let them be part of a big co-op not that the government creates, but that we let the market create.” Unleashing the marketplace to innovate and create solutions to hard problems is doable. It takes a willingness to try freedom.

No Evidence of Syrian Chemical Weapons Use http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4833-No-Evidence-of-Syrian-Chemical-Weapons-Use- It appears the Syrians may not have used chemical weapons in an attack on April 4th. The Syrians and the Russians both said no chemical weapons were used. Yet the story persisted in the American media. Local activists produced pictures of dead and dying victims who were supposedly suffering from the Sarin gas poisoning. President Trump seized on the situation to berate the Obama Administration for “weakness and irresolution.” American intelligence found no evidence that chemical weapons had been used by Syria.

Instead, the evidence showed Syrians used conventional weapons to target a jihadist meeting. Details of the attack had been provided by the Russians days prior to the attack to coordinate American, Syrian, and Russian operations. Lack of evidence not withstanding, President Trump ordered a strike on Syria. The president used the strike to impress the visiting Chinese president at Mar-a-Lago. This is one of the few situations where President Trump has been hailed by the American media and electorate.

It called for attacks during Ramadan on targets throughout the world and is now claiming credit for major attacks in at least a dozen countries and numerous smaller attacks killing and injuring hundreds of people. The major attacks occurred in countries like Egypt, England, Iraq, Pakistan, and the Philippines.

While ISIS is famous for claiming credit for every terrorist attack that occurs anywhere; in this case there is no question that they at least encouraged numerous attacks and will continue to do so.

California Adopts Another Draconian Gun Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4831-California-Adopts-Another-Draconian-Gun-Law The far left state government in California hates guns and gun owners, while perfectly willing to protect illegal immigrants even if they have committed crimes involving gun violence. So the state has responded with a new law ordering law abiding gun owners who own magazines that can hold over ten rounds to turn them in to the government.

It is suspected that most gun owners will not comply, and in many counties with pro second amendment sheriffs there will be no enforcement by local authorities. Does this mean that the state will send its own people to kick down doors and arrest gun owners? This has been the dream of leftists for years so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Most of the mainstream media is trying to ignore the Senate Judiciary probe into the actions of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Most people are aware of her suspicious meeting with Bill Clinton while Hillary was the subject of a criminal investigation. Now, James Comey has come forward and indicated that she tried to pressure him to downplay the investigation.

Now there is a new report of the existence of emails between Lynch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz where she gave confidential information to the chairman of the DNC about the investigation. She is also said to have advised the DNC about ways she planned to help. If true, these are criminal offenses.

SCOTUS Rules in Favor of Missouri Church http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4828-SCOTUS-Rules-in-Favor-of-Missouri-Church A Lutheran Church in Missouri has won a case that has broad implications for freedom of religion. The case arose when the church applied to the state to take part in a program designed to make playgrounds at schools and kindergartens safer. The application was denied by the state because the park was owned by the church and on its property.

The church sued and the Supreme Court ruled in a seven to two decision that the denial by the state was discriminatory because it was based entirely on the fact that the applicant was a religious entity. Since the court found that the church qualified for the funds in all other regards, the denial of the application violated the First Amendment of the Constitution.

However the fact that the decision was nine to zero indicates that the prospects look good; and not one justice defended the basis for the lower court decisions.

Merchant Ship On Autopilot When It Struck Naval Vessel http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4826-Merchant-Ship-On-Autopilot-When-It-Struck-Naval-Vessel When the USS Fitzgerald was struck by a container ship on June 17th, the container ship was on autopilot. Nobody was on the merchant ship’s bridge at the time of the collision. The Japanese Coast Guard was not alerted for nearly 30 minutes. The warning signals that alert the ship’s operators were missed. After the ship turned around and returned to the scene of the collision did it find the American ship. US Navy investigators are trying to figure out why advanced military navigation radar on the American naval vessel did not alert the crew of an imminent collision. Lookouts were posted to the bridge and were responsible for detecting possible collisions. Seven American sailors lost their lives. They were trapped below the waterline.

The Committee is also looking into why the FBI relied on the Trump dossier and its author and former spy, Christopher Steele. Fusion GPS bills itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm.” But some investigators think it is a Democrat opposition-research group. The company was hired by Democrats to find dirt on Mitt Romney. And Planned Parenthood used the firm to look into pro-life activists.

On Friday the president tweeted, “The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?” On Saturday the president took to Twitter again, asking, “Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T!” The Democratic National Committee refused to allow the FBI to examine its servers for Russian hacks. Instead, the DNC used CrowdStrike, a cyber security company, to make an independent assessment. The FBI had to rely upon the company “to make its assessment about alleged Russian hacking into the DNC.” Officials within the Obama Administration believed that Hillary Clinton would win the White House and apparently did not see the need to make Russian hacking an issue.

President Trump marked the end of Ramadan by merely tweeting, “On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as the celebrate Eid al-Fitr.” The dinner tradition started under President Clinton, but gained in publicity during the Bush administration after the 9/11 bombing. President Bush attempted to push the narrative that Islam was “a religion of peace.” 2017 set a new record of 174 terror attacks during Ramadan. 1,627 people were killed and 1,960 were wounded. Most horrifying were the terror attacks in London during the month of June.

High-rise buildings in France and Australia with similar cladding have had significant fires. The Grenfell Tower fire in London is the latest fire to involve exterior cladding. Over the weekend, British authorities evacuated residents of four buildings that were wrapped with the same cladding. The European Union Energy directive imposed energy efficiency on buildings. The directive was passed into British law in 2010. Exterior cladding was put on buildings all over the UK and Europe. In trying to save the world from climate change, it’s possible that bureaucrats have created a life threatening situation for people living in high-rise buildings.

Healthcare Mess http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4819-Healthcare-Mess Under the Senate’s healthcare bill, Americans who don’t maintain health insurance would be barred from purchasing health insurance on the individual market for six months. The Senate’s bill would keep health insurers from denying coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions. To keep the cost down for the sick and those with pre-existing conditions, the legislative scheme needs to force healthy people to buy insurance. How that is different from Obamacare, which forces Americans to buy healthcare coverage or face a fine, is not clear. The six-month provision may make it more difficult get the requisite number of Republicans required to pass the bill.

He also wants the United States to “support internal domestic dissent” within Iran to achieve regime change. The United States and United Kingdom tried regime change in Iran in 1953 when they overthrew the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh. The U.S. support for the Shah and the overthrow of Mossaddegh was a significant grievance of opposition groups in Iran. A grievance that many Iranians continue to harbor. The Trump Administration is continuing to develop a policy towards Iran. Until then, the administration will continue the deal that the Obama Administration initiated.

New York Reeling Under Minimum Wage Hikes http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4813-New-York-Reeling-Under-Minimum-Wage-Hikes The liberal controlled state legislature in New York passed legislation to gradually increase the required minimum wage to $15.00 per hour by 2019. The increases started going into effect at the end of 2015 and is already having a devastating impact on the state’s economy. This is particularly true for the restaurant business that makes up a large part of the economy in places like New York City.

Over a thousand restaurants closed state wide last year alone. This has left thousands of people unemployed and it is harder than ever to find jobs elsewhere in the state since the growth in the industry has come to virtual standstill. In addition, other people are losing their jobs as fast food restaurants go to self-service kiosks to reduce costs.

Voting by Illegals is Real http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4812-Voting-by-Illegals-is-Real When President Donald Trump claimed that voting by people in this country illegally may have kept him from winning the popular vote in November he was met with derision by the mainstream media. However, recent developments are supporting his claim. Studies around the country show that illegals and other non citizens are widely recruited to register to vote, particularly in states like California and Washington where no proof of citizenship is required.

The effort to recruit illegals and get them out to vote was strengthened during the Obama administration when the Justice Department sued any state that required things like a picture ID to be produced when voting. Statistics show that in 2008 and 2012 millions of non-citizens voted so there is no reason to believe that did not happen in 2016.

The poll states that 64 percent of those polled believe it is damaging to the country, and 56 percent want the Congress and the media to move on to issues that truly concern Americans like jobs, the economy, terrorism, and national security.

This poll reflects that people are reacting to the fact that despite months of investigation there has been absolutely no evidence found to tie the Trump campaign to the Russians. Nor is there any evidence to show that Russian attempts to interfere with the election were successful in actually influencing the outcome.

“When you have a set group of people that come to create a disturbance, some of them even wearing masks or wearing certain clothing, what do you do,” asked Feinstein. “I think the answer is to make sure they don’t create a disturbance and to threaten them with punishment, meaningful punishment, if they do create a disturbance. And not to essentially let them have their way by suppressing the speech that they are trying to suppress,” Volokh replied. Many conservative speakers have had their events cancelled out of fear of violence. Many universities may not have the resources to handle protests and find cancelling the event a better way to deal with the threats of violence.

Single Payer Healthcare Stopped In California http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4808-Single-Payer-Healthcare-Stopped-In-California Common sense took hold of California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon on Friday. He stopped legislation that would create a single payer healthcare plan in the state. He placed the bill in the Assembly Rules Committee “until further notice.” He said the bill is “woefully incomplete.” Earlier in the month, the state Senate passed the bill knowing full well that the legislation had many fatal problems. The bill did not address, financing, delivery of care, cost controls, or other issues. Initial estimates put the cost of single payer at $400 billion. Authors of the legislation plan to create a funding mechanism and amend the bill at some point in the future.

Inmates Save Life of Guard http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4807-Inmates-Save-Life-of-Guard-- Six inmates on a work detail were credited with saving the life of a deputy tasked with supervising them. The inmates were cutting the grass at a cemetery.

One of the inmates used the officer’s phone to call 911. Another removed his bulletproof vest and gun belt to help the officer breath more easily. Medics came to the scene and took over. "They really stepped up in a time of crisis and show that they care about my officers," Polk County Sheriff Johnny Moats said. "That really speaks a lot about my officers too, how they treat these inmates. They treat them like people. Like family." The six Georgia inmates were granted a 25% reduction in their sentences. And the deputy’s family held a lunch for the inmates at a local park to thank them.

Propping Up Obamacare http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4806--Propping-Up-Obamacare Senator Rand Paul says that the Senate healthcare bill does nothing to repeal Obamacare. “It actually does not repeal and replace Obamacare, it replaces it with more Obamacare or Obamacare-Lite, which doesn’t really fix the problem.” The Senator pointed out that the Senate bill keeps 100 percent of Obamacare subsidies and even increases subsidies. The bill would create a stabilization fund of $100 billion. “This fund is something that is not consistent with conservative philosophy because it’s the government giving money to insurance companies,” said Senator Paul.

Out of the twelve regulations that are driving up the price of premiums, the proposed Senate bill keeps ten of them. Senator Paul points out that the legislation repeals a lot of the taxes associated with Obamacare, but it does not get rid of the spending. “When you do that, what you end up having is a problem with your debt, the bill will add a lot to the debt.” Senate Majority Leader McConnell is pushing for a vote in the Senate in the coming week. So far five Republican senators said they won’t support the bill.

Talk of Violence on the Left Heats Up http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4805-Talk-of-Violence-on-the-Left-Heats-Up A Democrat Party official in Nebraska, was recorded saying that he was glad Representative Scalise was shot but wished he was dead. Phil Montag was co-chair of the state party’s technology committee. Montag said of Scalise, "His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I'm glad he got shot,” adding, "I wish he was (expletive) dead.” Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb fired Montag. “Wishing a Member of Congress or any individual dead is disgusting and has no place in our party.” "We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it's comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting. Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left.” Montag said that his words were edited and that he did not wish for the death of Representative Scalise.

Growth in the restaurant sector slowed to 1.4% Between 2010 and 2015 growth was 4.4% Restaurants in New York City are required to pay $12 an hour. The minimum wage will ultimately rise to $15 by 2019. “It’s a miserable business at the moment. Most restaurateurs are far less profitable than they were a year ago,” said Andrew Schnipper, owner of five Schnipper’s Quality Kitchens. “We are beginning to see the harmful effects of drastic minimum wage increases that previous studies have predicted,” said Mike Whatley, Director of State and Local Government Affairs, National Restaurant Association.

Many voters bought into it. Now that big government is investigating Bernie and Jane Sanders. Jane Sanders is being investigated for possible bank fraud. She may have overstated, by a mere $2 million, the amount donors pledged to repay so she could obtain a $10 million loan to buy 33 acres of land to expand Burlington College. Bernie Sanders is being investigated by federal prosecutors for using his office to pressure the bank to approve the loan. The Sanders have lawyered up, retaining pricey and experienced attorneys.

Promises With Expiration Dates http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4802-Promises-With-Expiration-Dates Hillary Clinton signed an ethics agreement in 2009 when she became Secretary of State. She promised to “notify the State Department's ethics official if a new foreign government wanted to donate or ‘increase materially’ its contributions.” Qatar gave the Clinton Foundation $1 million to celebrate former President Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday. The gift was never reported to the State Department. Evidence shows that the Clinton Foundation failed to report donations from eight additional countries. Mrs. Clinton’s promise to publish a list of its donors since 2010, never materialized either.

She’s denied discussing the investigation with Bill Clinton. On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee decided to investigate how Loretta Lynch might have influenced the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton.

The investigation has bipartisan support. According to former FBI Director, James Comey, Lynch asked him to call the probe into Mrs. Clinton’s emails a “matter” instead of an “investigation.” The committee issued a letter asking Ms. Lynch to “detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t ‘push too deeply into the mater.’”

Reality Check for Minimum Wage http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4800-Reality-Check-for-Minimum-Wage McDonalds estimates that one in eight American workers has been employed by the company. But that statistic will be getting smaller in the future. McDonalds is rolling out digital kiosks. They will eventually replace cashiers in at least 2,500 restaurants by the end of 2017.

The company is also introducing mobile ordering across 14,000 locations by the end of 2017. The push towards a higher minimum wage is forcing McDonalds to innovate and lower its labor costs. A kiosk works 24 hours a day. It does not take sick days. It does not need a paycheck. It shows up to work everyday and never complains or gives poor service.

Nancy Pelosi Plans to Stick Around http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4799-Nancy-Pelosi-Plans-to-Stick-Around House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, is under fire for the inability of Democrats to win an open House seat in Georgia. Democrats spent $30 million only to lose the race.

Some Democrats think it is impossible for Democrats to retake the House in 2018 because of her leadership. Republicans have successfully campaigned against Democrats by linking them with Pelosi and San Francisco values. They featured Pelosi in almost every attack ad in the Georgia race. During a press conference on Thursday, Pelosi sang her praises saying, “Well, I am a master legislator. i am a strategic politically astute leader. My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I am able to attract the support that I do which is essential to our election, sad to say.” Republicans are encouraging Pelosi to stick around.

She used Yelp as a platform to disparage people she considered “low-class” and “white trash.” After her comments were publicly exposed, she acknowledged that she was wrong.

“Let me be clear,” she wrote. “No one, especially those in trusted positions of educating young people, should denigrate or stereotype others, and that extends to any form of discrimination based on class, race, religion, age, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.” “There are no two ways about it,” she wrote. “Not only were they insensitive in matters related to class and race; they demean the values to which I hold myself and which I offer as a member of this community.” Dean Chu is now without a job. She was placed on leave at the end of May. Administrative head, Stephen Davis said that he’d lost confidence in Chu’s ability to lead students and is searching for a replacement dean.

New Sniper Record http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4797-New-Sniper-Record A Canadian sniper set a new military record. He killed an ISIS fighter from a distance of 2.2 miles. “The Canadian Special Operations Command can confirm that a member of the Joint Task Force 2 successfully hit a target from 3,540 [2.2 miles],” said a Canadian military statement. This would have been an incredibly complex shot relying more on the spotter’s expertise than the sniper’s skill.

Ryan Cleckner, a former U.S. Army Ranger sniper said, “The spotter would have had to successfully calculate five factors: distance, wind, atmospheric conditions and the speed of the earth’s rotation at their latitude.” The spotter’s job is to tell the sniper the moment the conditions come together with the calculations that were made. The record shot was taken with a McMillan TAC-50. It is the largest shoulder-fired firearm in the world.

Maybe Trump Was Right After all http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4796-Maybe-Trump-Was-Right-After-all Shortly after winning the election, President-Elect Trump tweeted, “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” Many people dismissed this as the President-Elect being unable to deal with losing the popular vote. In a new study by the think tank, Just Facts, it’s estimated that as many as 5.7 million non-citizens may have voted in the 2008 election.

The Just Facts study looks at a Harvard/YouGov study done after the 2008 election in which 32,000 people were interviewed. The Just Facts study recasts the Harvard/YouGov study by examining its underlying assumptions. Harvard/YouGov relied heavily on Census data, which “underestimates the presence of illegal immigrants in the country.” Just Facts concluded that between 1.2 and 3.6 million non-citizens may have voted in the 2012 election. If true, the numbers could also account for Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote.

Instead, Carrier would invest $16 million into the plant. Talk radio conservatives were ecstatic, pointing out that America was coming back. A few weeks later, the CEO revealed that the investment would be in automation of the plant. Seven months later, Carrier announced that it will lay off 600 employees. Many of the jobs will go to Mexico.

China has long tried to incorporate Tibet into China and quash the Dalai Lama’s campaign to free the people of Tibet. One student said of the spiritual leader, "His conflict with our government caused property loss, deaths of innocent people, and panic among the general public––even though he claims that he advocates for a nonviolent revolution.” Administrators at the university did not give into student demands. The Dalai Lama gave his address and spoke about his vision for a better world without violence.

Deep State Torture http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4793-Deep-State-Torture It’s come to light that the United Arab Emirates has a network of secret prisons in Yemen. The “black sites” are designed to torture detainees to extract information. In some cases, American military personnel provide the questions and receive transcripts from the interrogations. The Associated Press interviewed dozens of former prisoners, family members, lawyers, and officials from Yemen and the U.S. Victims were “put into shipping containers and even smeared with feces. Inmates were flogged with wires, locked inside a container with a fire burning to fill it with smoke, tied to a spit and spun in a circle of fire, as well as being subjected to other forms of torture.”

Yemen officials denied the existence of black sites and said reports of torture were exaggerated. American military officials said, “We would not turn a blind eye, because we are obligated to report any violations of human rights,” chief Defense Department spokeswoman Dana White said when presented with AP's findings. The official added that the US always follows “the highest standards of personal and professional conduct.” The International Committee of the Red Cross or a UN Human Right Council may investigate to confirm the allegations of torture.

Debt obligations and pension costs have strained the city’s budget. Adding to the strain, the city’s investment portfolio has not delivered the high returns that were expected. The city’s budget is $5.2 billion. For the first time in 15 years, the city’s pension obligations are fully funded.

Republican Healthcare Legislation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4789-Republican-Healthcare-Legislation Republican Senators unveiled their version of healthcare today. It has nothing to do with free markets or liberty. Government would continue to be heavily involved. And some Obamacare subsidies would stick around. Health insurance companies would get reimbursements to subsidize low income users of Obamacare plans.

The good news is that the individual mandate would be repealed. In fact, it would be repealed retroactively to the beginning of 2016. Does that mean the government would return the money it extracted from the poor citizens who elected to do without healthcare? On that question, the plan is silent. Four Republican senators are so unimpressed with their colleagues’ efforts to run healthcare that they have announced they are not going to support it. One of the holdouts, Senator Rand Paul said, “It looks like we’re keeping Obamacare, not repealing.” Healthcare theater is just getting started. Stay tuned!

Republicans are successfully making Pelosi a target in House elections and it will certainly continue in 2018.

The ultra-left wing government in California has decided to ban state funded travel to eight other U.S. states that refuse to abide by the liberal views of California. The states banned include Texas, Alabama, North Carolina, South Dakota, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kansas.

The crimes of these states according to the California government are protecting privacy by opposing transgender bathrooms, and protecting religious freedoms for businesses. This may explain why many people now refer to the Golden state as the “Peoples’ Republic of California.”

Steve Scalise and other Republican members of Congress during a practice for the congressional baseball game is unfortunately just the tip of the iceberg. Since May at least 30 Republicans in Congress have received death threats and some have had their homes vandalized.

The response of most of the mainstream media has been to ignore these threats or even make jokes about the shooting of Scalise and others. When this is coupled with the play in New York glorifying the assassination of Donald Trump, the atrocious picture featuring Kathy Griffin holding up a likeness of Trump’s severed head, as well members of academia excusing the threats and shootings are indications that the violence will continue.

Highlights of the proposal include doing away with the Obamacare tax increases, the individual and small business mandates, and returning control of Medicaid to the states.

Unfortunately, for supporters of the new legislation there are also at least four Republican senators who have expressed opposition to the proposal unless some changes are made. This would leave the Republicans two votes short of being able to pass the bill with no democrat votes.

If convicted he faces at least life in prison, but according to the prosecution could be facing the death penalty if certain circumstances are met. This appears to be another unfortunate example of lapses in security in the federal government.

Many of them also seem to believe that if the election was held today Hillary would win in a landslide. However, there is a major problem with that theory. A poll done in the last few days shows that Hillary’s numbers are the same now as they were just after the election.

In December 2016 she had a favorable rating of 41 percent and unfavorable rating of 57 percent. The new poll shows her with the same numbers today so it appears that all of her excuses for her loss in November have fallen on deaf ears.

Welfare Wall http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4782-Welfare-Wall At a rally on Wednesday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, President Trump said that he’d like to see a new kind of wall. "That's why I believe the time has come for new immigration rules which say those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years," said the president. President Trump is taking a step in the right direction. Requiring immigrants to work would create a process of self-selection. Those immigrants who want to be a part of the country and integrate into the culture would agree to the terms. A free nation requires a self-reliant citizenry not dependent upon government for its welfare.

Tesla’s Batteries Not So Green http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4781-Tesla’s-Batteries-Not-So-Green Tesla’s car batteries create the same amount of carbon dioxide during their production as does driving a gasoline-powered car for eight years. The report was produced by IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute. “For every kilowatt hour of storage capacity in the battery, [it] generated emissions of 150 to 200 kilos of carbon dioxide already in the factory.” A Tesla sized battery produces three times as much emissions as the smaller Nissan leaf sized. The U.S. government has funded Tesla in the hope that the battery powered car would make meaningful contributions towards “combating climate change.”

Saudi Arabia Shuffles Line of Succession http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4780-Saudi-Arabia-Shuffles-Line-of-Succession The king of Saudi Arabia appointed his 31-year-old son, Mohammed bin Salman, as crown prince. The former crown prince, Mohammed bin Nayef, was removed from the line of succession. Mohammed bin Salman served as the kingdom’s defense minister. He has taken a hard line against Iran and has led the Saudi war against Yemen. He worked closely with the Trump administration to facilitate the president’s first trip abroad. The appointment of a younger royal is seen as a consequential shift power towards a new generation of royals. He has been popular among Saudi Arabia’s youth. He’s pushed for reforms to allow more entertainment and to make the country less reliant on oil as a source of its revenue.

President Eric Holder? http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4779-President-Eric-Holder? Former Attorney General, Eric Holder, is thinking about running for president in 2020 He wants to use his association with President Obama and his notoriety of being the first African-American attorney general “to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.” Holder feels obligated to re-enter the political field because of Hillary Clinton’s loss. “Now is the time to be more visible. Now is the time to be heard,” said Holder. Eric Holder was hired by the state of California to keep its status as a sanctuary state. As part of that effort, he is promoting legislation to “prevent local police from enforcing immigration law."

Obamacare Takes Hit http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4778--Obamacare-Takes-Hit Anthem will pull out of Obamacare in Wisconsin and Indiana by the end of 2017. The company blamed a decrease in people signing up and the political uncertainty surrounding the program as its reasons for leaving the markets. Because the healthcare market is so volatile, Anthem can’t properly plan and price compliant policies. Anthem pulled out of Ohio in June. Governor Scott Walker issued a statement saying, "Obamacare is collapsing. Growing uncertainty in the health insurance market was created by Obamacare’s costly regulations and it is causing higher premiums and a lack of options." Democrats blame the instability on Republicans and President Trump’s unwillingness to spend more money on Obamacare to keep it financially stable.

State Department Begins Probe of Clinton Email Server http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4777-State-Department-Begins-Probe-of-Clinton-Email-Server The State Department is investigating Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private server. The investigation could result in Clinton losing her top-level security clearance. According to former FBI Director, James Comey, “there were seven email chains on Clinton’s computer that were classified at the “Top Secret/Special Access Program level.” An additional 2,0000 emails were found with information that is currently considered classified. The State Department’s investigation began sometime after the FBI closed its investigation of Clinton. The Senate Judiciary Committee is also investigating Clinton’s handling of emails. A spokesman for Clinton said, “Nothing’s been more thoroughly dissected. it’s over. Case closed. Literally.”

Policing Thought and Speech in Germany http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4776--Policing-Thought-and-Speech-in-Germany The houses of 36 people in Germany were raided by police on Tuesday. They are suspected with posting “hateful” content on social media sites. Germany equates words or speech with violence. Enforcement actions are designed to police what people think. “The still high incidence of punishable hate posting shows a need for police action,” explained Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office “Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence and violence either on the street or on the internet.” Because of Germany’s Nazi past, German authorities look to quash speech that might create hostility towards minorities. Pending legislation in Germany would fine social media companies up to $53 million if they don’t remove hate speech or other content deemed illegal or offensive.

Unhappiness With Pelosi http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4775-Unhappiness-With-Pelosi In the wake of the Democrat’s loss in Tuesday’s special election in Georgia, there is a lot of unhappiness with Nancy Pelosi’s leadership as Minority Leader in the House. Since 2008, Democratic representation has been shrinking. Democrats have lost over a thousand seats throughout the country. Democrats spent over $30 million to lose the Georgia election. “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top. Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons,” said Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Texas). Republicans have successfully made Pelosi and “San Francisco values” toxic to Democrat challengers in many races across the country. Yet Nancy Pelosi is an effective fundraiser, raising more that $560 million for House Democrats since 2003.

Political Theater http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4774-Political-Theater Republicans plan to raise the debt ceiling which is currently set at almost $20 trillion. The Treasury said that Congress can wait until sometime in September to raise the limit. The debt ceiling is the upper limit that the government may borrow. It was first established in 1917. It gives politicians the cover of fiscal responsibility. Republicans want to raise the debt ceiling to a level whereby there would not have to be a vote for several years. Congress ought to scrap the debt ceiling altogether. While the political maneuvering makes for amusing political theater, nobody in Congress is serious about cutting the national debt or balancing the budget.

FEC Commissioner Wants To Expand Russian Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4773-FEC-Commissioner-Wants-To-Expand-Russian-Investigation A Democrat Commissioner on the Federal Election Commission wants to expand the investigation of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election. The expansion would include companies that take political ads. Facebook and Drudge Report were two companies that might be investigated under the proposal. Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub plans to introduce the idea to the entire commission. "This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for our democracy," she said. No government agency investigating Russian influence has asked the FEC for help. People critical of her idea call it a “federal power grab” not within the scope of the FEC’s power.

Left Continues to Call for Violence http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4772-Left-Continues-to-Call-for-Violence As some in the left wing media appear to still be celebrating the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise as being something he deserved for being a white Republican conservative, others on the left are going further. The ultra-violent ANTIFA group is posting calls on its website for its comrades to attack police, and anyone suspected of being a Trump supporter.

Members of the group have participated in violent acts in Berkley, California, Olympia, Washington, and Harrisburg, PA along with other locations. They are well known for using various weapons and even attacking and injuring police horses. Many people are calling for the group to be designated a terrorist organization and treated accordingly.

Terrorist Attack in Flint, Michigan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4771-Terrorist-Attack-in-Flint,-Michigan An Islamic terrorist identified as Canadian Amor Ftouhi attacked a police officer in the Flint, Michigan airport yesterday. He was yelling Allah Akbar as he used a 12 inch knife to stab Officer Jeff Neville in the neck in the unsecured area of the airport. The FBI and other federal, state, and local agencies are all treating this as an act of terrorism.

Ftouhi was captured alive and told investigators that he was acting on behalf of Allah and planned to kill as many people as possible. Only quick action by other airport police kept him from succeeding. This will undoubtedly raise more concerns about our northern border that is even more wide open than our southern border. Ftouhi apparently entered the country legally on June 16.

Illinois Preparing to Default on Bill Payments http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4770-Illinois-Preparing-to-Default-on-Bill-Payments After years of mismanagement and uncontrolled spending by the Democrats in control of the state government the Illinois state comptroller Susana Mendoza issued a dire warning to lawmakers. The state is entering its third year without a budget and is staring at 15 billion dollars in unpaid bills, and Mendoza says that the state will not be able to pay bills to continue some “core” services.

The state is already facing the downgrading of its financial situation to “junk status” which means that the state will no longer be able to borrow money or issue bonds. Many of the services affected are those provided to senior citizens such as hospice services, long term care, and supportive living decisions.

Democrats in Disarray after Election Losses http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4769-Democrats-in-Disarray-after-Election-Losses After the Tuesday election losses, including the one in Georgia’s Sixth District some democrats in Congress are questioning both the message their party is delivering and the party leadership. In Georgia the democrats raised and spent millions of dollars in support of a candidate that claimed to be a moderate.

Despite this, the party continued to play this up as a national referendum on President Donald Trump. Republicans countered by tying Jon Ossoff to House minority leader Nancy Pelosi. This has led some democrats to talk about replacing Pelosi and starting to run campaigns with a positive message instead of just being anti-Trump.

Unusual activity has been reported at a site where such tests have been conducted before. The tests of nuclear weapons, and missiles capable of delivering these weapons to targets as far away as the west coast of the United States violate several United Nations resolutions, and come despite severe economic sanctions impose on the communist dictatorship.

Some analysts believe that the test may be planned to coincide with a visit by officials from communist China to meet with American leaders. North Korea may be hoping to impress or intimidate the Chinese.

The Texas Bullion Depository will be 60,000 square feet. “The Texas Bullion Depository will offer Texans safe, secure, and fully insured storage for precious metals, providing an alternative to depositories largely located in and around New York City,” said Glenn Hegar, the Texas comptroller. The depository will be available for use by “private citizens, institutional investors, state agencies, and even non-US precious metals investors.” Hegar envisions a network of licensed and insured depository agents around the state to help Texans store their gold.

Gun Control in California Schools http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4765-Gun-Control-in-California-Schools California’s State Assembly passed a gun control measure to disarm teachers and staff who are allowed to carry for self-defense. The vote to disarm teachers was 43-23.
Five California school districts allow concealed-carry weapon permit holders to carry on campus. The legislator behind the bill, 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.” McCarty did not list an single crime committed by an armed teacher or staff member. By disarming law abiding citizens, legislators make students and teachers reliant upon calls to 911 and whatever they can find to throw at attackers until police arrive.

No Single-Payer http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4764--No-Single-Payer The Washington Post published an editorial on Sunday saying that single-payer health care would not work in the United States. The cost would be “astonishing,” said the Post. The editorial referenced the Urban Institute which calculated the cost of single-payer to be $32 trillion over 10 years. And single-payer would be politically unpopular. "To realize the single-payer dream of coverage for all and big savings, medical industry players, including doctors, would likely have to get paid less and patients would have to accept different standards of access and comfort. There is little evidence most Americans are willing to accept such tradeoffs."

While the editorial board understands the prohibitive cost of single-payer, the editors don’t seem to get that forcing someone to provide a service is immoral.

Even though Amazon delivers products cheaply, efficiently, and has made the lives of millions of Americans better, Rushkoff is convinced that Amazon needs to be called out “for the threat it poses to our markets, our economy, and even our planet.” Rather than compete in the marketplace, Rushkoff wants to complain and find ways to use the force of government to make the lives of Americans more expensive and difficult.

His body was left at the station for several hours out of fear that the explosives on the belt could go off. Police closed down the area and a bomb disposal squad searched the area for more explosive devices. March 22, 2016, three coordinated suicide bombings took place in Brussels. Two attacks were at the airport and the other at a metro station.

Tipping Uber Drivers http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4760-Tipping-Uber-Drivers The ride sharing company, Uber, updated its app to allow riders to tip drivers. The app was rolled out in three cities on Tuesday. Seattle, Minneapolis, and Houston are the first cities to get the app. When the bugs are worked out of the software, the updated app will be rolled out nationwide at the end of July. Uber has long resisted allowing tipping. The company explained in 2016, “With Uber, drivers know that they earn the same for doing the same trip, no matter who they are or where they’re from.”

Recently, Uber has been facing multiple scandals including sexism, mishandling medical records, and a lawsuit from a Google spinoff. Uber’s CEO took a temporary leave of absence from the company. Uber has implemented “180 days of change.” A PR campaign to restore its image with its drivers. The ability to tip drivers appears to be a part of the campaign.

After the open primary the polls showed Democrat Jon Ossoff with a substantial lead over Republican Karen Handel.

However, the lead diminished quickly, but the polls still had Ossoff leading on the day before the election. Once again, the polls were wrong. In addition, Republicans also held onto a vacated seat in South Carolina. Ossoff ran as a moderate Democrat, but obviously the voters in the district didn’t buy it.

The statue is going to be reassembled and placed in a cemetery. This is being done in the name of political correctness because some people claim the statue represents racism and white supremacy.

There is in fact, no evidence that, the statue was erected to do anything but honor the memory of Florida soldiers who fought for the confederacy. At the same time leftists and historical revisionists in Memphis, Tennessee are demanding that confederate monuments in the city be removed.

In retaliation for this the Russians flew one of their fighters within five feet of an American recon plane over the Baltic Sea. The Russians have also threatened to shoot down American and British planes over Syria if they violate so called Syrian air space. The escalation continues.

Now Republicans in the Senate who want to have their own plan are under pressure to get something done before the upcoming recess. Therefore in the next few days Republicans will unveil their plan.

Despite claims by Democrats that most Americans love Obamacare it has been voted against by the public for years. Now it appears to be on the verge of total collapse. The irony is that since Trump was elected the Democrats have vowed not to participate in any effort to change the healthcare law in any way. Now, they are whining because they say they have been left out of the loop.

Investigators still cannot determine why the container ship was sailing erratically, and not following the required navigation rules for ships at sea, particularly in a crowded area like near the coast. The investigation also includes questioning the Philippine captain and crew about why the accident was not immediately reported to the Japanese Coast Guard.

Last year bombers set off explosives in the Brussels airport and train station that killed 32 people. Belgium has been on high alert ever since, particularly after the recent attacks in other European cities.

He said, “The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused.

The Cardinals have held “Christian Day” for nearly 30 years. So far, the team has not caved to gay rights activists demanding that Berkman be removed. The team has hosted a variety of themed events and plans to include the first Pride Night later in the season.

Free Speech Can’t Be Regulated As Hate Speech http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4748-Free-Speech-Can’t-Be-Regulated-As-Hate-Speech On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that the government can’t restrict “speech expressing ideas the offend” because it “strikes at the heart of the First Amendment.” The case stemmed from a refusal by the trademark office to trademark a brand called “The Slants.” It was refused on the grounds that the term was offensive towards Asians. The Court disagreed. Justice Alito wrote, “Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express ‘the thought that we hate.’

"In the culture wars there is a determined effort to say that speech causes violence … even without evidence. So a production of Julius Caesar is said to incite assassination and therefore should be banned. The Supreme Court’s ruling on Monday is the “standard for a free society.” Instead of banning speech, Americans would be wise to temper their speech.

California Provides Emergency Grants to Planned Parenthood http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4747-California-Provides-Emergency-Grants-to-Planned-Parenthood The California Treasury granted $20 million in emergency grants to Planned Parenthood and other groups to make up for a loss of federal taxpayer funds. However there have been no loss of funds. The House of Representatives did pass a bill to cut federal funding of Planned Parenthood by $390 million. But the Senate has not taken up the bill. The action by California is at best a political stunt to force California taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is not hurting for money. It has nearly one billion dollars in net assets.

Constitutional Right To Use Social Media http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4746-Constitutional-Right-To-Use-Social-Media On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled a 2008 North Carolina law too broad and therefore unconstitutional. The law barred registered sex offenders from accessing commercial social media sites where minors were members. The case was brought by a registered sex offender who got onto Facebook and posted a praise to Jesus after getting a traffic ticket dismissed. The defendant was prosecuted for violating the North Carolina law. He appealed on First Amendment grounds. The high court struck down the law writing, “By prohibiting sex offenders from using” social media “websites, North Carolina . . . bars accessing to what, for many, are the principal sources for knowing current events, checking ads for employment, speaking and listening in the modern public square, and otherwise exploring the vast realms of human though and knowledge.”

The Court did not discount that child exploitation is an “act repugnant to the moral instances of a decent people.” Justice Kennedy writing for the majority said, “…it can be assumed that the First Amendment permits a State to enact specific, narrowly tailored laws that prohibit a sex offender from engaging in conduct that often presages a sexual crime, like contacting a minor or using a website to gather information about a minor.”

U.S. Shoots Down Syrian Jet http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4745-U.S.-Shoots-Down-Syrian-Jet The United States shot down a Syrian Air Force Jet Sunday. In response, Russia cut off the deconfliction line of communication with U.S. coalition forces. Also, any aircraft flown by the United States and allies west of the Euphrates would be targeted by the Russians. During the presidential campaign, candidate Trump did not seem enthusiastic about expanding America’s military involvement in the Middle East. Now, President Trump is escalating America’s involvement, most recently in Yemen, Afghanistan, and now Syria. Congress needs to vote on what, if any, America’s interests are in Syria and what the extent of America’s involvement in Syria will be.

The guest speaker is former Cardinal’s player Lance Berkman, and to the LGBT leaders he is a homophobic because he opposed an ordinance in Houston, Texas authorizing transgender individuals to use any bathroom they choose to use regardless of their actual sex.

The Cardinals refused to cancel the 30 year tradition and has offered to have an LGBT pride night at the stadium. This is not enough for the St. Louis Pridecenter that demands diversity, while calling for exclusion of anyone who disagrees with it.

The World Continues to Ignore Atrocities against Christians http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4743-The-World-Continues-to-Ignore-Atrocities-against-Christians Reports continue to abound that world bodies such as the United Nations continue to ignore or even cover up Muslim atrocities against Christians around the world. The latest case in point is when the American Center for Law and Justice presented testimony and evidence to the United Nations Human Rights Council about ISIS torturing and killing Christian men women and children in horrific ways including burning, beheading, and crucifixion.

In one reported case 250 young children were slaughtered by being taken into a bakery and thrown into a kneading machine. This type of thing is occurring all over the Middle East, but especially in Iraq and Syria. Yet, despite all of this the UN Council, that is made up mostly of countries run by brutal dictatorships, has taken no action.

Major U.S. House Race to be Decided Today http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4742-Major-U.S.-House-Race-to-be-Decided-Today The House race between Democrat Jon Osloff and Republican Karen Handel has not only turned out to be the most expensive race in history it is being closely watched by both sides as a possible precursor to next year’s House races. The district being contested is a district held for years by Republicans, most recently by Tom Price who is now Trump’s Secretary of HHS.

Osloff has a slight lead in the polls despite the fact that he does not live in the district and can’t even vote for himself. The Democrat strategy has been to run Osloff as a moderate in order to attract voters that they believe dislike Trump. However as has been the case in the past there are no moderate Democrats in Congress any more.

One category of stocks that is surging is the tech stocks that had been falling for quite some time. When the stock market surge is combined with the record drop in unemployment and other economic indicators such as the growth rate Americans have reason to continue to be optimistic.

Otto Warmbier has Died http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4740-Otto-Warmbier-has-Died Otto Warmbier, the young student at the University of Virginia who was arrested by the North Koreans for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel in North Kores and subsequently sentenced to 15 years in prison has died. The Trump administration obtained his release after discovering that the 22 year old had been in a comma for over a year.

Both his parents and the President have accused the North Korean regime of causing the coma by the brutal treatment he suffered at the hands of his captors. Otto was sent back to the United States, but doctors were unable to save him and he died a few days after his release. At least three other Americans remain captives of the North Koreans.

A band made up of Asian Americans decided to call itself the Slants, and tried to get a federal trademark for the name. The band members were turned by politically correct federal bureaucrats who said that some people might find the name offensive.

The Supreme Court ruled that even “offensive” speech is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. This ruling is being hailed by the Washington Redskins football team that has been under attack for years because of its name.

It is partnering with Israel to develop solutions. A pilot agriculture project run by an Israeli company is having success. The project is being funded by the Kenyan government. The test project third harvest collected 93,860 bags of maize from 2,500 acres. The purpose of the pilot project is to introduce new technologies and to teach Kenyan farmers methods of integrating the technology with growing crops. Israel is taking 100 Kenyans a year for six years for training in Israel. Israel has little rain water. It developed a drip irrigation system using treated water so that it could produce enough food to feed itself. It’s been so successful that Israel exports food.

North Korean Travel Ban Possible http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4737-North-Korean-Travel-Ban-Possible Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said Wednesday, “We have been evaluating whether we should put some type of travel visa restriction to North Korea. We have not come to a final conclusion, but we are considering it.” The Secretary said this in light of North Korea’s treatment of Otto Warmbier, the college student jailed by the government. Since 2000, there have been fifteen known cases of Americans detained by North Korea. One school of thought in Washington thinks that the U.S. government’s options for response are limited. One concern is that the three Americans currently imprisoned in North Korea may be harmed if the American government responds to Warmbier’s treatment. The other school of thought thinks that sanctions against North Korea could be tightened and that China could be told that it can either do business with the United States or North Korea, but not both. North Korea is building nuclear weapons that potentially could reach the United States. Money that American tourists spend in North Korea allows the government the cash needed to buy the resources needed to build up its ballistic missiles.

President Trump Not Under Investigation http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4736-President-Trump-Not-Under-Investigation One of the attorneys on President Trump’s outside legal team said that the president is not under investigation. President Trump fired off a tweet on Friday saying, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.” In an effort to tamp down speculation, Attorney Jay Sekulow appeared on Sunday news programs and repeatedly emphasized “the president has not been and is not under investigation.” “I can’t read people’s minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there’s an investigation to the president of the United States. So that — nothing has changed in that regard since James Comey’s testimony,” said Sekulow. Sekulow emphasized that the president was frustrated by former Directory Comey’s unwillingness to publicly announce that President Trump was not under investigation. The president believes rumors of investigation have hurt his ability to advance his agenda.

Organizers expected 10,000 Muslims to show up to stand in solidarity against the wave of terror attacks across large European cities. However, a couple of hundred people showed up. Many of whom were not Muslims. Germany’s larges Islamic organization announced earlier in the week that it would not participate. The Turkish-Islamic Union said that Muslims observing Ramadan could not be expected to endure summer temperatures. And that the march might send the wrong message “by suggesting that international terrorism is mainly a Muslim problem.”

Seven Sailors Killed in Collision http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4732--Seven-Sailors-Killed-in-Collision Seven U.S. sailors were killed when a large Japanese container ship plowed into the destroyer USS Fitzgerald on Friday night. “The damage included a significant impact under the ship's pilothouse on the starboard side and a large puncture below the ship's waterline, opening the hull to the sea.”
http://www.c7f.navy.mil/Media/News/Display/Article...

Why a cargo ship rammed a U.S. destroyer is the question under investigation. Some retired military captains speculated that the U.S. ship may not have followed international regulations requiring ships to give way to other vessels on their right side. The collision occurred in one of Japan’s busiest shipping lanes. 400 vessels a day go through the region where the collision occurred. Despite the damage, the ship is expected to be repaired and returned to service in the U.S. 7th Fleet. Repairs may take a year.

Texas Governor Signs Anti-Sharia Law http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4730-Texas-Governor-Signs-Anti-Sharia-Law Governor Greg Abbott of Texas has signed a new passed by the legislature commonly called “American Law for American Courts” that outlaws the use of Islamic Sharia law in any Texas court, either criminal or civil. Islamic law is designed to favor Muslims over “infidels” i.e. non-Muslims in civil matters and as an excuse for criminal activities such as “honor killings” of Muslim men of their wives and daughters.

Similar laws have been passed by states in the past, including a state constitutional amendment passed overwhelmingly by voters in Oklahoma, but were struck down by federal courts after suits were filed by Muslim activists and Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder. Governor Abbott appears confident that there will be a different outcome today.

The Syrian jet dropped bombs near coalition positions and was clearly attempting to inflict damage and casualties.

Of course, the Assad regime claims otherwise and said the jet was attacking ISIS forces in the area although there were not any known to be in that location. This serves as a clear warning to Assad that such action against coalition forces will not be tolerated.

The attacks were carried out by Afghans who were masquerading as Afghan soldiers. It is a long standing practice of the Taliban to plant their men in Afghan military units in order to ultimately kill loyal Afghan soldiers as well as Americans.

This has been going on since the war started and now there is concern that if Secretary of Defense Mattis does deploy additional American troops to the country it will provide even more targets for the Taliban. However, it may also increase security.

Half the country approves of President Trump and the other half disapproves. A driving factor behind the poll is that voter optimism with the economy is soaring. At least 61 percent of likely voters think the American economy is in fair condition. When the economy is doing well, it tends to reflect well on the president in power. When President Trump took office in January, his approval ratings hit a high of 59 percent. In April his rating hit a low of 42 percent.

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer says, “Those are the heart and soul of your neighborhood. And I think when they’re empty for a long period of time you feel depressed.” Brewer surveyed an area of 244 blocks and found 188 empty store fronts. She thinks the vitality of neighborhoods is being killed off by the vacancies. But Brewer makes no mention of New York City’s high taxes, business licensing requirements, and the other costs that make it difficult to do business in the city. The Real Estate Board of New York opposes any legislation that would fine landlords for not renting their properties.

At Denny’s there is no longer a hostess to greet customers. The restaurant can’t afford to pay for that position any longer. Waitresses and managers clear and clean tables. Busboys have been phased out because of the high cost of labor. So a teenager wanting his first job, can’t get a job because the restaurant can’t afford to pay him. Minimum wage laws create unemployment. People who have no skills but who want to work, should have the freedom to contract at whatever market price the business and individual can agree on.

Instead of being greeted and the cashier taking her order, the cashier laughed at her. Before shoving a drink towards Hart, the drink was labeled with a political message that mocked her support of the president. Other employees in the back of the store started laughing at Hart. The laughter was enough to get the attention of all the other customers in the store so that everyone was staring at Hart. She walked out. She submitted a complaint to the company. Starbucks issued a statement: “We failed to meet this customer's expectations of us, and we have apologized and are working directly with her to make it right. This experience is not consistent with our standards or the welcoming and respectful experience we aim to provide every customer who visit our stores. We have spoken with our store partners about this situation and are using this as a coaching opportunity for the future.”

Protesters Stop Julius Caeser http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4717-Protesters-Stop-Julius-Caeser The play, Julius Caesar, was performed in New York City Friday night. The play depicts Julius Caesar looking very much like President Trump. Laura Loomer from Rebel Media, walked onto the stage in the middle of the performance. She shouted that this was political violence against the right and that it was unacceptable. The play was paused while security rushed to the stage to escort the woman out of the venue. As she was leaving, Jack Prosobiec, from Rebel Media, stood up in the middle of the audience and began to rebuke the crowd saying, “You are all Goebbels. You are all Nazis. You are inciting terrorists. The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands. Goebbles would be proud.” Prosobiec was escorted out of the venue by security. Increasingly the right is adopting the tactics of the left. Shutting down free speech is not a wise tactic.

Competition Heating Up in Grocery Business http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4716-Competition-Heating-Up-in-Grocery-Business The German grocery chain, Lidl opened ten stores in the United States on Thursday. The company plans to open 80 stores on the East Cost by the middle of 2018. The company hopes to offer considerably lower prices. While larger than their German counterparts, Lidl stores in America will be about 20,000 square feet with six aisles. Rather than sell multiple brands of the same items, Lidl emphasizes exclusive brands. Lidl US CEO, Brendan Proctor, says, “Our mission every day is to deliver our customers less complexity, lower prices, better choices and greater confidence.” On the same day that Lidl opened its stores, Kroger announced a 0.2% drop in same store sales. Competition in the grocery industry is increasing and pressure on prices is getting greater.

Draining the Swamp http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4715--Draining-the-Swamp The Department of Energy is closing its Office of International Climate and Technology and eliminating 11 staff positions. The office was created in 2010. Staff members “worked with other countries in order to develop clean energy technology and reduce greenhouse gases.” A spokesman for the DOE said that the department was “looking for ways to consolidate the many duplicate programs that currently exist within DOE.” The closure of the office comes shortly after President Trump pulled America out of the Paris Climate agreement.

He has been in a coma since the day after he was sentenced. American doctors did not find any signs of botulism. But they are suggesting that Warmbier suffered from extensive brain damage. Warmbier is showing signs of cardiopulmonary arrest. This is were the blood supply to the brain is not sufficient for a period of time resulting in the death of brain tissue. Warmbier is experiencing “unresponsive wakefulness”. He can open his eyes and has functioning reflexes, but is not responsive to other tests of consciousness. Doctors have not given a prognosis.

Russian Probe Uncovers Questions About Loretta Lynch http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4713-Russian-Probe-Uncovers-Questions-About-Loretta-Lynch The Russian probe has led to questions about possible wrongdoing by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails. Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton in her plane for about thirty minutes. Bill Clinton’s wife was under investigation for her mishandling of emails. During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Comey said that Loretta Lynch directed him to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation or a criminal probe. Comey conceded in his testimony that the appointment of a special counsel would have been appropriate because of Comey’s concerns about Lynch. Judicial Watch said in a statement, “Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with President Clinton creates the appearance of a violation of law, ethical standards and good judgment.” Some Republicans have been calling for Loretta Lynch to be called to testify about her actions.

Ken Starr Says No Obstruction Case http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4712-Ken-Starr-Says-No-Obstruction-Case Former independent prosecutor, Ken Starr, said that he doesn’t believe there is an obstruction of justice case against President Trump. "Obstruction of justice is really a very hard crime to make out," Starr said. "It's not just you want the investigation to go away, you suggest that the investigation goes away – you have to take really affirmative action." President Trump said that he hoped Comey could see his way to letting Flynn go. But Comey continued with the investigation. Because Comey did not take it as an order, it would be hard to prove obstruction of justice.

The goal of the restrictions to end transactions that benefit the Castro regime. Some things won’t be changing. Remittances from Cubans living in America will be allowed.

Richard Cullen will represent the Vice President. Cullen was U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia under George H.W. Bush. Issues that may involve the Vice President include former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn. Flynn may have misled Pence about conversations he had with the Russian Ambassador. And Pence was one of those officials who were asked to leave the room when President Trump indicated to James Comey that he hoped Flynn would not be charged.

American Government’s War on Cash http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4709-American-Government’s-War-on-Cash Republicans and Democrats introduced legislation which extends the authority of the government to seize American’s assets through Civil Asset Forfeiture. Government agents would create a “border protection strategy to interdict and detect prepaid access devices, digital currencies, or other similar instruments, at border crossings and other ports of entry for the United States.” Companies would have to monitor the size of activity on prepaid credit cards, prepaid phones, prepaid retail gift cards and prepaid coupons. This has nothing to do with fighting terrorism. It is a war against the freedom to use cash.

Occupational Freedom http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4708-Occupational-Freedom Occupational licensing is taking a hit. Earlier this month, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed legislation to legalize natural or African-style hair braiding. Anyone in New Hampshire can now braid hair without government permission. In Tennessee, a government license is no longer needed to do something as mundane as shampooing hair. Occupational licensing has increased fourfold from the 1950s. 25% of American workers need a license to work. Licensing raises prices and restricts economic opportunity. Once study estimated that licensing costs consumers $203 billion a year. The governors of Arizona and Idaho recently issued executive orders to review the state’s occupational licensing and identify areas for reform. Eliminating occupational licensing will give more opportunity to people who want to work, but face costly educational restrictions associated with licensing.

Georgia GOP Candidate Receives Threat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4707-Georgia-GOP-Candidate-Receives-Threat On June 20th there will be a special Congressional election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District for the House of Representatives seat vacated by the appointment of Tom Price to be the HHS secretary in the Trump administration. The Republican candidate Karen Handel is in a virtual tie with her Democrat opponent Jon Ossoff despite the fact that Hollywood democrats and others have poured millions into his campaign.

Now, there is a new wrinkle in the campaign because shortly after the attempted assassination of Congressional Republicans in Virginia; Handel received a threatening letter with a suspicious substance in it at her home, and several of her neighbors also received threatening letters with the same or similar substance. This appears to be a dangerous escalation of the far left hate campaign since it now includes candidates for Congress and even potential voters.

Dirty Bomb Threat Hits U.S. Port http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4706-Dirty-Bomb-Threat-Hits-U.S.-Port A major concern over the past few years for Homeland Security officials is the ue of a ‘dirty bomb” in the United States. A dirty bomb is not technically a nuclear bomb but uses conventional explosives to spread radioactive waste debris over a large area when detonated. The result would be major contamination and many deaths.

Now, there has been an incident mostly ignored by the media that involves a dirty bomb scare at the port of Charleston, South Carolina. Coast Guard officials have confirmed that a terminal in the port was evacuated and the port effectively shut down for hours after a bomb was reported to be on a ship that had just entered the port. No bomb was found, but it is a lesson that shows that even the threat can cause a major disruption of commerce.

These incidents are raising grave concern among legal scholars.

First, there is no way to confirm the reports or even the existence of the sources. In addition, if these sources are real and the leaks are coming from the office of the Special Counsel or other federal employees they are direct violations of federal law and could result in prosecutions. They also may raise concerns about the non-partisan nature of the Special Counsel’s investigation.

In Indianapolis, Indiana a man was shot at while driving his pickup truck with a “Make America Great Again” and an American flag. The police are looking for two shooters that were driving a passing car.

In a less dangerous, but still disturbing incident in Charlotte, North Carolina a woman reported that she was mocked and harassed by employees at a Starbucks when she was buying a cup of coffee while wearing a Trump T-shirt.

The claim was that the posting of a target on the internet on Giffords Congressional District Palin has instigated the attack.

This theory quickly fell apart when it was pointed out that Palin was putting targets on the maps of Congressional Districts with vulnerable Democrats not on the faces of individuals. It was also found that the shooter had been stalking Giffords for months and was actually a Democrat. That did not stop the Times from running the same story the day after the Scalise shooting and then apologizing or it. The newspaper seems to be apologizing a lot lately.

Some members of the left wing news media seemed almost giddy over the attempted assassination of Republican lawmakers by a Bernie Sanders supporter. Some sent out tweets that seemed to find humor in the fact that Congressman Steve Scalise was in the hospital in critical condition after being shot.

However, Jesse Benn, an alleged journalist for the far left Huffington Post took everything a step further. He not only failed to condemn the shooting, but advised future shooters to make more organized and therefore more effective attacks on conservatives and Trump supporters. This followed the Post pulling another article from its website that directly called for the assassination of President Trump.

No-go zones tend to be neighborhoods dominated by migrants. The areas see extensive drug trafficking, gang crime, and religious extremism. Information regarding the updated list of no-go zones was supposed to be published, but the national police chief stopped its publication. Recently postal deliveries to several dozen homes in a Stockholm suburb were stopped because the area was considered unsafe. Construction on a police station was suspended in March because contractors were not willing to send their workers to the unsafe area.

Blaming Guns http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4700-Blaming-Guns Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was quick to blame guns for the attempted assassination of Representative Steve Scalise. “There are too many guns on the street…we worry about this every day for all of our citizens,” said McAuliffe. He went on to say, “we lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.” If this were true, the population in America would be gone in four days. The governor corrected his claim to say that “we lose 93 Americans a day to gun violence.” But even this number is suspect. It includes firearm-related suicides. McAuliffe’s number more than doubles the number of people who are actually murdered with a firearm. McAuliffe is thought to be a possible presidential contender in 2020.

Trump Gets Sued On Wednesday http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4699--Trump-Gets-Sued-On-Wednesday 196 Congressional plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against President Trump. The basis of the suit is the little-known Emoluments Clause. Because President Trump is allegedly receiving foreign money through the Trump Organization without congressional approval, he is supposedly violating the clause. The Emoluments clause has never been litigated. If the suit is found to have standing, Democrats would be able to have discovery of President Trump’s financial records including his tax returns. Democrats will judge shop. They will look for a partisan judge, appointed by Obama or Clinton to get the outcome they desire.

The central bank is targeting a rate between 1 percent and 1.25 percent. One more interest rate increase is expected in 2017. The Federal Reserve also announced plans for how it will begin to liquidate the securities that it bought during the financial crisis. To begin unwinding its $4.5 trillion balance sheet, the Fed will not reinvest some of the funds it receives from the proceeds of maturing bonds. It will only invest money back into the market if it receives more than $6 billion in principal a month. This $6 billion cap will increase every three months until it hits $30 billion a month.

The plan to separate the 10 month old girls took months of meticulous planning. Teams of neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, and critical-care physicians studied brain scans and 3-D models to find the best and safest way to separate the girls. The surgical team began as one team to separate the girls and then divided to to finish the reconstruction portion of the operation. In separation surgeries, sometimes the twins don’t survive, or one twin does survive and the other does not.

Congressional Baseball Game http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4694-Congressional-Baseball-Game The Congressional Baseball Game began in 1909. It was organized by Representative John Tener of Pennsylvania who himself was a former professional baseball player. From 1909 to 1949, only House members participated. That changed in 1950 when a Senator from each party joined the game. While the game pits Republicans and Democrats against each other, it gives some relief to the sharp partisanship that divides members. Former Congressman, Tim Bishop says, “The baseball game is one of the last remaining pieces of bipartisan comity that exists in Washington.” Over the years the Congressional Baseball game has evolved into a fundraiser for local charities in the District of Columbia. This year it is supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, and The Washington Literacy Center.

Democrats are pushing the strongest bill possible as retribution for the Russians having somehow interfered in the 2016 elections. The legislation seeks to assert Congress as the final arbiter of sanctions relief and not the president. The legislation would codify the previous sanctions into law and add new sanctions affecting Russia’s defense and military. The White House has not announced where it stands on congressional review of sanctions.

In the past 30 days ICE and other Homeland Security agents made 45 arrests in the area and 39 of them were members of MS-13.

All of them were in this country illegally and those not charged with crimes will be deported. In the past, gang members have been charged with drug and human trafficking, murder, and kidnapping among other crimes. Long Island has been ground zero for numerous brutal murders in recent months and that is the main reason the crackdown on MS-13 members began there.

Trump Gives Full Authority to Secretary Mattis in Afghanistan http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4691-Trump-Gives-Full-Authority-to-Secretary-Mattis-in-Afghanistan The United States has been at war in Afghanistan for almost seventeen years; the longest war in American history. In 2008 the war seemed to be on the verge of ending successfully and then Barack Obama was elected President. He took the fighting of the war away from American military commanders and troops and began to micromanage the war. His goal seemed to be to have the U.S. fight some type of “politically correct” war and according to many in the military snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Donald Trump is determined to reverse that trend and has given Secretary of Defense James Mattis full authority over troop deployments in Afghanistan with the directive to defeat the Taliban and win the war.

Such an action could be considered an act of war since because it was done at night it could have caused the pilot to lose control and crash.

The helicopter crew responded by firing flares at the enemy vessel. The incident occurred while the U.S. Navy had two warships and a cargo ship in the strait. The Iranian vessel that was a missile ship came within 800 yards of the American vessels.

Gubernatorial elections tend to be a quick referendum on the newly elected president. Virginia Democratic voters voted for Ralph Northam over Tom Perriello. Perriello sought the support of progressive voters who identified with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Ralph Northam is the current Lt. Governor of Virginia and won the traditional Democratic constituency. He had the endorsement of every Democrat in the General Assembly. Republican Ed Gillespie was in a razor thin primary fight with Trump supporter and advocate, Corey Stewart. Stewart is waiting until all precincts report before conceding the election.

Michigan Democrats in Trouble http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4685-Michigan-Democrats-in-Trouble The Michigan Democratic Party was fined $500,000 for under reporting contributions brought in through Bingo fundraisers. Democrats under reported $4.4 million over a period of 14 years. The Federal Elections Commission found that “Democrats had accepted anonymous cash contributions, understated contributions, and reported false contributions and refunds.” The fine could have been several million dollars but was negotiated down. The Democratic Party in Michigan will have to amend past reports, retain an accounting firm and have a treasure address compliance issues.

Democrats Change Rules So They Can Win http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4683-Democrats-Change-Rules-So-They-Can-Win Democrats in California raised the gasoline tax by 12 cents. It’s sparked a voter revolt in southern California. State Senator Josh Newman is facing a recall vote. Angry voters turned in over 30,000 signatures. So Democrats are changing the law affecting recall elections. The legislation would give any voter who signed the petition 30 days to change their mind and have their signature removed. And ten days to update their tally of signatures. Lawmakers would also have an additional 30 days to study the financial impact of the recall elections. Governor Brown is expected to sign the legislation. The bill is designed to affect the recall election of Newman, even though the signatures were collected under current law.

According to the counts, Ronaldo did not declare income of $31.8 million from the image rights. He’s also accused of not fully reporting his income between 2011-14.

Sessions On Hot Seat http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4681-Sessions-On-Hot-Seat Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The Attorney General emphatically denied that he or any of Trump’s advisors worked with the Russians to affect the outcome of the election. Sessions revealed that he began exploring his recusal from the Russian investigation from his first day in office and decided that recusing himself would be appropriate and the right thing. To the exasperation of several Senators, Sessions declined to answer certain questions about his conversation with the president. He asserted that it was a long standing practice of the Department of Justice to protect confidential discussions with the president. Finally, Sessions said that numerous investigation are ongoing to identify leakers within the government.

North Korea Releases College Student http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4680-North-Korea-Releases-College-Student An American college student was released by North Korea on Tuesday. The 22-year-old student was struck with botulism two months into his incarceration. He’s been in a coma ever since. Otto Warmbler was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for taking down a propaganda poster in his hotel. During his trial, he was forced to read a confession detailing his crime and to beg forgiveness from the North Korean government. A statement was issued by the U.S. State Department announcing the release of Otto Warmbler from North Korea and also highlighted continued discussions regarding three other Americans being held. It’s unclear if Mr. Warmbler will regain consciousness.

American Student Comes Home From North Korean Prison http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4679-American-Student-Comes-Home-From-North-Korean-Prison Otto Warmbier, a 22 year old American college student has come home from a North Korean prison, but not in the way his family had wanted. The young man was sentenced over a year ago to 15 years in prison for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from the hotel where he was staying. The North Koreans claimed he was committing espionage on orders from the CIA.

Now he has been released in a coma that he has been in for a year. The North Koreans claim it was a result of contracting botulism, but American doctors who flew into North Korea to get him cannot confirm that. Instead, it is believed that the young man was repeatedly beaten by his captors. At least three other Americans are being held by the Kim Jong Un regime.

Florida Sheriff Urges Citizens to Arm Themselves http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4678-Florida-Sheriff-Urges-Citizens-to-Arm-Themselves While the police chief in the sanctuary city of Austin, Texas wants his police officers to profile and vet “gun enthusiasts, a Sheriff in Brevard County, has taken an entirely different approach. Sheriff Wayne Ivey has declared that we are at war and the best way for Americans to protect themselves and their families from terrorism is to get armed and prepare to fight back.

This is exactly the opposite approach from that taken by authorities in the United Kingdom who advise British citizens to run and hide instead of fighting back. For the population of Britain who have very limited access to firearms this may be their only choice. However, for Sheriff Ivey Americans have another choice and that is to take advantage of their second amendment rights.

Mayor of Rome Calls for Immigration Ban http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4677-Mayor-of-Rome-Calls-for-Immigration-Ban The mayor of Rome, Italy has taken a position unique for most politicians in Europe. Virginia Raggi, a member of the rogue Five Star Movement political party, called for a temporary moratorium on immigration into the historic Italian city and popular tourist destination. The mayor’s official explanation for the ban is that the city does not have the capacity to accommodate more migrants.

However, another reason may be that many recent immigrants have come from countries like Libya and the mayor has been well aware of the recent terrorist attacks in European cities like Paris and London. This has caused a serious drop in tourism to those cities.

Megyn Kelly under Fire for Alex Jones Interview http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4676-Megyn-Kelly-under-Fire-for-Alex-Jones-Interview The reasons for Megyn Kelly leaving Fox News have never been entirely clear for many people, but she soon landed an impressive new gig with NBC doing a Sunday night interview show. Her debut show did quite well, but the number of people who watched her second show dropped by 42%. Now she and NBC have bigger problems with her upcoming interview with the controversial radio show host Alex Jones.

The show has not even aired yet, but excerpts from it caused a backlash from advertisers and the public, especially the families of the children killed in the Sandy Hook massacre. Jones has claimed that it never happened and was staged just like he claims that the attack on 9/11 was an inside job. Kelly was supposed to host an event at Sandy hook, but she has been dropped because of the interview.

Liberals Continue to Target Eleven Year Old Barron Trump http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4675-Liberals-Continue-to-Target-Eleven-Year-Old-Barron-Trump It has been an unwritten rule for years that regardless of the political views of a particular President, launching an attack on the children of the chief executive was strictly forbidden. However, the rules have changed according to the political left in this country because the President is Donald Trump and nothing is off limits including his family.

In addition, it appears that even the most mundane actions of an eleven year old can invoke ridicule and even down right fury among some people. The latest action of Barron Trump to cause derision is that he was filmed getting of a plane with his mother while playing with a hand held toy called a fidget spinner that has become extremely popular among teens and pre-teens. However, according to the left, in the hands of Barron Trump it is proof positive that he is either suffering from anxiety or autism.

ICE Conducts a Sweep of Criminal Illegals in New Jersey http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4674-ICE-Conducts-a-Sweep-of-Criminal-Illegals-in-New-Jersey A field office of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in New Jersey made 113 arrests this past week of illegals in this country that are charged with, or have been convicted of other crimes. The people arrested are from 30 different countries and have committed criminal acts involving drugs, human trafficking, and in the case of one man from Honduras was wanted for murder in his own country.

This action is part of the ongoing drive of the Trump administration to find and deport people who are dangerous criminals, and are here illegally. There is also an emphasis on getting rid of individuals who might pose a threat to our national security.

Many of the Democrats including, the leading one on the committee Mark Warner (D VA), simply refused to allow Sessions to finish answering questions if they did not like the answers he was given. The point has been made repeatedly that there was very little discussion of what the committee was supposed to be investigating, possible Russian attempts to interfere in our election process. Instead, it was a continuation of personal attacks on the President and his Attorney General.

Venezuela Goes From Bad to Worse http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4672-Venezuela-Goes-From-Bad-to-Worse Anti-government marches in Venezuela are growing in frequency. Since late March, 84 protestors have been killed in confrontations with police and military. Armed police are on every street corner. Pro government propaganda competes with anti-government graffiti denouncing the socialist regime. Violence, poverty, inflation, and a breakdown in basic services plague the country. The inflation rate hit 800% in December 2016 and some people predict 1500% inflation by the end of 2017. Adding to the misery is that 16,000 doctors have left the country over the last 12 years. Infant mortality rose by 30% and maternal mortality increased by 66% in 2016. Diseases such as malaria and diphtheria are rising. The government blames the fall in the price of oil for the country’s miseries. Not its socialist policies.

Criminal NGOs http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4671-Criminal-NGOs Some Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in Europe are colluding with criminal gangs to move African migrants into Italy. The Libyan Navy announced that it had driven out several NGO vessels from Libyan territorial waters on Sunday. Libyan Admiral, Ayob Amr Ghasem, said that NGOs wait for boats full of migrants to arrive, claiming that they’d been informed by human traffickers of their arrival. Libyan Colonel Tarek Shanboor delivered bank details and phone records showing the collusion to EU border security officials in Brussels. “The non-governmental organizations are adding to the crisis by actively encouraging increasing numbers of migrants,” Shanboor said. “Now we have the evidence they are in cahoots with the smugglers. We have evidence the smugglers call the NGOs directly and there are business deals between them.”

Abortion Clinic Shut Down http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4670-Abortion-Clinic-Shut-Down An abortion clinic in Pennsylvania was shut down after the state’s Department of Health found “serious deficiencies and violations.” The Hillcrest Women’s Medical Center had four previous violations of state health laws in the last six years. Three Republican lawmakers asked the Department of Health why the clinic’s license had not be revoked. In February, the clinic had no registered nurse on staff and had not conducted back ground checks on eight staff members. Additionally, the clinic could not show that the abortionist was a board eligible OB/GYN. A June inspection found expired medical supplies. According to the Department of Health, the clinic will remain closed “until such time that it can demonstrate it is safe for women to receive care.”

No More Firings http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4669-No-More-Firings Republican leaders in the House and Senate are trying to tamp down calls for President Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller Mueller has fallen under suspicion because he is a close friend of James Comey. Mueller’s team has hired four people who’ve contributed to Democratic presidential campaigns and organizations. On Monday, former Speaker of the House tweeted, “Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. “Time to rethink.” But Lindsey Graham, Senator from South Carolina, said, “It would be a disaster. There’s no reason to fire Mueller. What’s he done to be fired?” Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that firing Mueller would “certainly be an extraordinarily unwise move.” Firing Mueller would ignite a new round of media and Democratic frenzy and raise suspicions that the president was hiding something.

Dennis Rodman Returning to North Korea http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4668-Dennis-Rodman-Returning-to-North-Korea Former basketball player, Dennis Rodman, is returning to North Korea. He’s expected to arrive in the country’s capital on Tuesday.
http://www.businessinsider.com/dennis-rodman-north...

When he visited in 2014, he and other NBA All-Stars played an exhibition game for Kim Jong Un. Jong Un is a fan of the mid-1990s Chicago Bulls.a In an interview afterwards, Rodman was asked why he’d done nothing to get the American, Kenneth Bae, release from a North Korean prison. Rodman defended himself saying that he was a basketball player and not a diplomat. The United States has been ratcheting up tensions with North Korea over its missile program since President Trump was inaugurated. Rodman’s “basketball diplomacy” may do more to ease tensions than the US State Department ever could.

“No Tapes” Say Secret Service http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4666-“No-Tapes”-Say-Secret-Service The Secret Service does not have audio recordings or transcripts of any recordings inside the White House since President Trump took office. The agency’s announcement came after a Freedom of Information request was filed by the Wall Street Journal. The agency’s announcement does not preclude President Trump or anyone else from having set up a recording system. President Trump raised the possibility of the existence of tapes in May when he tweeted, "James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" If such tapes do exist, they would be of interest to House and Senate investigators looking into conversations that President Trump had with former FBI Director, James Comey. The president said that he would make an announcement soon on the existence of any recordings.

New Jersey High School Students have Yearbook Pictures Altered http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4664-New-Jersey-High-School-Students-have-Yearbook-Pictures-Altered- Two high school students in Wall, New Jersey picked up their copies of this year’s yearbook only to find that the pictures they had taken had been altered to remove the references to President Donald Trump that was on their clothing. In addition, the Freshman Class President submitted a quote by Donald Trump to go under her picture in the yearbook and it was also removed while the senior class president’s quote from FDR was allowed.

The Wall Township school district has ordered a full investigation, since a student’s year book photo can only be altered if it violates a school policy such making references to drugs, violence, or alcohol. No one knows who actually altered the pictures, but the district has confirmed that a teacher who was the yearbook advisor has been suspended while the investigation continues.

Target’s Transgender Bathroom Policy Claims another Victim http://libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4663-Target’s-Transgender-Bathroom-Policy-Claims-another-Victim Shortly after Target stores announced their policy of allowing people to use any bathroom or dressing room they wanted in their stores, depending on the person’s choice of gender at the moment, the American Family Association organized a successful boycott of Target. Despite its sales and stock value falling dramatically Target is unrelenting.

Now another serious incident has occurred in The Woodlands, Texas Target where a man entered the woman’s dressing room and began videotaping a woman trying on swimsuits. This was not just a transgender issue; this was a direct violation of her privacy. Yet, despite her terrified screams and cries for help the store security cameras showed employees doing what they are taught to do, ignoring her. This is the latest in a series of similar incidents.
