Liberty News Daily http://www.libertynewsdaily.com LND - News The Networks Refuse To Use! en-us U.S. Treasury Fines Exxon $2 Million http://www.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.

Apollo 11 Lunar Sample Bag Goes for $1.8 Million http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5123-Apollo-11-Lunar-Sample-Bag-Goes-for-$1.8-Million A bag that was used to bring samples of moon rock and dust on the Apollo 11 mission sold at auction for $1.8 million. 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.

Rise in Anti-Semitism in Berlin http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5122-Rise-in-Anti-Semitism-in-Berlin In a study conducted by the American Jewish Committee, 21 schools in Berlin show a growing level of anti-Semitism in Turkish and Arab Muslim students. 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.

Freedom Caucus Pushes Full Repeal of Obamacare http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5121-Freedom-Caucus-Pushes-Full-Repeal-of-Obamacare The Freedom Caucus in the House will file a discharge petition to bring an Obamacare clean repeal bill to the floor of the House. 218 signatures from Republican members would be needed. 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.

Trump Ends Covert CIA Program http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5120-Trump-Ends-Covert-CIA-Program The CIA has been running a covert arms program that supplied rebels fighting the Syrian government. 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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Blatantly telling someone they must give up their civil rights in order to care for their own grandchild is simply beyond the pale.”

ICE to Employ Thousands of Agents to Sanctuary Cities http://www.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.

Bank of America Suffers System Outage http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5096-Bank-of-America-Suffers-System-Outage In the last few days one of the largest banks in the United States had many of its customers unable to access their accounts online and perform any types of transactions. Some branches were also shut down. Everything appears to be getting back to normal, but the bank is not yet able to explain what happened.

In the past several months there have been a large number of attacks by hackers against banks and other major corporations that have occurred worldwide. This has prompted many cyber security experts in the U.S. to point out that most corporations, banks, and even government institutions in this country have left themselves extremely vulnerable to such attacks. It remains to be seen if the Bank of America such down is proof of this.

Senator John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5095-Senator-John-McCain-Diagnosed-with-Brain-Cancer Senator John McCain, the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona has been diagnosed with brain cancer. He has served in the Senate since 1986, and was the unsuccessful Republican candidate for President in 2008. He was a naval combat pilot during the Vietnam War. He was shot down and captured in 1967 and was a prisoner of war for six years, severely tortured, and left with numerous physical limitations.

What will happen next is unclear since McCain and his family have to consider treatment options. What they decide could have an immediate impact on his ability to stay in the Senate.

Kim Jong Un Steps up His Efforts to Terrorize ha Own People http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5094-Kim-Jong-Un-Steps-up-His-Efforts-to-Terrorize-ha-Own-People North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un is well known for using terror and starvation to control his own people. He has set up concentration camps where entire families are locked up because even a single member of the family is “disloyal”. He is also infamous for killing members of his own family and anyone who offends him in incredibly brutal fashion.

Now a watchdog group has claimed that Un has stepped up his game by having executions of dissidents and other political prisoners conducted in public places like fish markets and even school yards in order to terrorize everyone, even young children.

Terrorist Rehabilitation Fails in Minnesota http://www.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.

Women’s March Leaders Wish Happy Birthday to Cop Killer http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5092-Women’s-March-Leaders-Wish-Happy-Birthday-to-Cop-Killer The left wing organizers of the anti-Trump and anti-American Women’s March in January have once again showed their true colors. The group sent out a tweet wishing Happy Birthday to one of their heroine’s, a woman who murdered a New Jersey state police officer in 1973. She and her partner were both Black Panther party and they wounded a second trooper. Joanne Chesimard was convicted of murder and went to prison in 1977. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba where she has been protected by the Castro regime ever since.

She changed her name to Assata Shakur and according to the Women’s March leaders is worthy of their adoration as apparently are other cop killers.

Susan Rice Congressional Testimony Postponed http://www.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.

Unreported Russian Collusion http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5090-Unreported-Russian-Collusion With the mainstream media still in a feeding frenzy over alleged collusion between Russia and members of the Trump campaign another story of real collusion has been buried. 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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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://www.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.

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.”

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://www.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.

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.

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 Post recently criticized the NRA for a video with former Navy Seal Dom Razo foe being too political and barely mentioning firearms.

Republicans Vow Resistance to Socialist “Fairness” Tax http://www.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.

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://www.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.

Christian Minister Murdered in India http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5066-Christian-Minister-Murdered-in-India Sultan Masih, A Christian minister in India, was murdered while celebratory preparations were being made for the church’s 25th anniversary. The minister was taking a phone call outside of the building when two people on a motorbike shot him several times. He was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. 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.

Homeland Security Grants 15,000 More Worker Visas http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5065-Homeland-Security-Grants-15,000-More-Worker-Visas The Department of Homeland Security plans to grant an additional 15,000 H-2B nonimmigrant visas through the 2017 fiscal year. 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.

Healthcare Bill Loses Support http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5064-Healthcare-Bill-Loses-Support Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas announced they would not support Senator McConnell’s healthcare legislation. Senators Paul and Collins had earlier announced they would not be supporting the legislation. Senator Moran said the bill “fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs.” Moran went on to say, “We must now start fresh with an open legislative process.” The bill was already delayed because of Senator McCain’s surgery. 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://www.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.

Healthcare Reform Officially Dead http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5062-Healthcare-Reform-Officially-Dead Two more Republican Senators, Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas have joined Susan Collins of Maine and Rand Paul of Kentucky in opposing the proposed bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. This effectively kills any chance of passage, at least for now. 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.

Crisis Deepens in Venezuela http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5061-Crisis-Deepens-in-Venezuela Opposition leaders in Venezuela have called for a nationwide strike to challenge President Nicolaus Maduro’s decision to have an election for a “Constituent Assembly” to draw up a new Constitution. 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.

Canadians Outraged at their Prime Minister http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5060-Canadians-Outraged-at-their-Prime-Minister In 2003 a Canadian terrorist named Omar Khadr threw a hand grenade at American soldiers in a joint American/Canadian base in Afghanistan. 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://www.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.

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://www.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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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://www.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://www.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://www.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."

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://www.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.”

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://www.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.

Punishments ranged from barring individuals from becoming captains of sports teams or “receiving the dean's endorsement for certain fellowships.” This year, a Harvard committee is proposing to ban such clubs altogether. 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.

Senator Hates Outsourcing But Is Okay With It In Family Business http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5035-Senator-Hates-Outsourcing-But-Is-Okay-With-It-In-Family-Business Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly is a critic of outsourcing, even calling it “a fancy term for someone in Indiana [who] has just lost their job.” The senator is even sponsoring the “End Outsourcing Act.” However, the senator became heavily invested in his family’s ink business about the time the business “moved some of its manufacturing of ink stamp pads to a factory” in Mexico five years ago. A spokesman for the company said that it was the only way the business could stay competitive. Donnelly has been reporting on his financial disclosure forms that he’s been earning up to $50,000 a year in dividends off of his stock. UPDATE: On Friday, it was reported that Senator Donnelly sold stock in his family company.

Record Spending By Feds http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5034-Record-Spending-By-Feds The federal government set a spending record in June. It spent $428,894,000,000. 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. Republicans love to complain about the national debt and all the spending that President Obama was doing. But now that Republicans are in charge, Republicans showed that they really love to spend other people’s money.

Google Wins Tax Case in France http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5033-Google-Wins-Tax-Case-in-France French tax authorities argued that Google needed to pay $1.27 billion in taxes. Google and “its Irish subsidiary sold a service for inserting online ads to clients in France through its Google search engine.” But a French administrative court ruled that Google Ireland Limited did not have a “permanent establishment” in France. “In their ruling, the judges noted that the ads ordered by French clients could not be put online by the employees of Google France themselves because any ad orders ultimately needed approval from Google Ireland Limited.” Google has organized itself so that it minimizes the amount of taxes it pays through ought the world. Corporate taxes are substantially lower in Ireland.

Energy Department Pays $138,000 for Law Degree http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5032-Energy-Department-Pays-$138,000-for-Law-Degree An engineer for the Energy Department went to law school at taxpayer expense. Officials within the department approved $138,000 for the courses. After getting his degree, the engineer quit working for the department and pursued work in the private sector. If an employee receives more than 180 hours of paid training, he is required to sign a contract to continue working for the government. The newly minted lawyer took 1,000 hours of courses. Senior managers within the department ignored policies and procedures that governed how this was to be handled. Instead, managers verbally approved the requests for training. A whistleblower brought the abuse to the attention of the inspector general’s office. All senior managers who approved the training no longer work for the department.

Yet Democrat, CNN commentator, and friend of Bill Clinton, Paul Begala on Wednesday said that the United States “should be debating whether to ‘blow up’ agencies” like the Russian military’s GRU. He added that President Trump ought to be “retaliating massively” for Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Begala tweeted that he and President Obama were wrong to mock Mitt Romney in 2012 for saying that Russia was America’s number one geostrategic threat.

Social Security can only pay scheduled benefits through 2034. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, “[T]ens of millions of Americans rely on these programs and it is important that we ensure their long-term stability.” To close the funding gap for Social Security through payroll taxes, Congress would have to raise the amount it is grabbing from paychecks by 2.76 percentage points for a total of 15.16 percent.

Snowflake Tells When It’s Okay to Censor Speech http://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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.”

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://www.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.

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.

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://www.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://www.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.

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 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.

Republicans Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Obamacare http://www.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.

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.

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.”

Concerned for cleanliness and sanitation, two judges have asked that the city clean up the sidewalks. 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.

Another American Citizen Killed by a Previously Deported Illegal http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5005-Another-American-Citizen-Killed-by-a-Previously-Deported-Illegal It is a report that is becoming all too common in the U.S. Another American citizen has been killed by an illegal alien from Mexico who had previously been deported seven times. 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://www.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.

Schumer Blames Trump for NYC Subway Crisis http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5003-Schumer-Blames-Trump-for-NYC-Subway-Crisis Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer has become a master at obstructionism. He has delayed confirmation of even low level Trump appointments to his administration and has tried to block every piece of legislation proposed by the Trump administration or Republicans in Congress. 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.

FBI Investigating Explosion at Military Recruitment Office http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5002-FBI-Investigating-Explosion-at-Military-Recruitment-Office An explosion of what appears to have been a pipe bomb in front of a U.S. Air Force recruiting center in a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma is being investigated by the FBI as a possible act of domestic terrorism. 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.

CBS Hates the Use of the Term Snowflake http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5001-CBS-Hates-the-Use-of-the-Term-Snowflake The CBS Sunday morning show became a showcase for the growing concern over the use of the term snowflake to describe whiny liberals, particularly millennials who demand that that free speech be shut down so they will not be offended by conservative ideas. 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.

CBS host Jane Pauley had a guest on her show who lamented that the term “snowflake” is anti-intellectual and of course racist and intolerant and apparently should be banned.

Democrats not Excited About Impeachment Bill http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-5000-Democrats-not-Excited-About-Impeachment-Bill Eleven term Democrat Congressman Brad Sherman of California has gone forward with his threat and filed Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. The article claims that Trump should be impeached for among other things, firing FBI Director James Comey, something that any President has the right to do. 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.

Double Standard on Russian/Trump Scandal and DNC/Ukraine Scandal http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4999-Double-Standard-on-Russian/Trump-Scandal-and-DNC/Ukraine-Scandal The liberal media is in a feeding frenzy over the meeting of Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. The meeting was probably ill advised and doesn’t seem to prove anything illegal happened, but the left claims this is absolute proof of “collusion.”

At the same time most of the mainstream media is totally ignoring solid proof that during the campaign members of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and the Clinton campaign were meeting with representatives of the Ukrainian government at the Ukrainian embassy in Washington to get dirt on members of the Trump campaign. This is clearly a double standard.

US will Commission its Newest Aircraft Carrier http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4998-US-will-Commission-its-Newest-Aircraft-Carrier The United States will be commissioning its latest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford on Saturday. The Navy will now have 11 carriers. The USS Gerald R. Ford is the newest class of carrier in 40 years. It is the most advanced carrier in the Navy’s fleet. 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://www.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. Planned Parenthood receives funding through Medicaid and a Title X family planning programs. 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.

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.

Locals Save Drowning Family http://www.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://www.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.

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.

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://www.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.

United States Conducts Successful Missile Defense Test http://www.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.

China Launches Verbal Assault on U.S. http://www.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.

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.

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.

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.

Someone in line behind the officer became enraged over this, threatened to beat up the teenager, called him a racist, and vowed to get him fired because they claimed they were entitled to free brownies too. Rather than defend their employee, who had just been threatened, the store suspended him.

The public backlash has been overwhelming to say the least, and the store has since apologized publically and offered to give the 18 year old his job back. There is no word yet if the offer has been accepted.

Trump Draining the Swamp at the VA http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4973-Trump-Draining-the-Swamp-at-the-VA Since Donald Trump was inaugurated as President over 500 employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs have been fired, 200 suspended, and 33 more demoted. 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.

Liberal Media Virtually Ignores Assassination of NYPD officer http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4972-Liberal-Media-Virtually-Ignores-Assassination-of-NYPD-officer The morning after New York City police officer Miosotis Familia, a 48 year old mother of three was ambushed and killed while sitting in her police vehicle her story was virtually ignored by the liberal media. 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.

Facebook Censorship Increasing http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4971-Facebook-Censorship-Increasing Mark Zuckerberg is a notorious far left liberal who has become a billionaire as a result of his immensely popular website, Facebook that has attracted millions of followers worldwide. However, there have been increasing complaints from individuals and groups who say they are being censored by Facebook. These are primarily people who make conservative posts that Zuckerberg disagrees with, They may be pro-life, pro second amendment, pro Trump or anything else Zuckerberg doesn’t like.

Now there are indications that Facebook is censoring posts that are critical of the liberal media like CNN. It is becoming apparent that in the mind of Mark Zuckerberg and other liberal companies like Google you are only entitled to free speech if you agree with them.

Dallas County Commissioner Votes Against Honoring Slain Police Officers http://www.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.

Wave of Government Bankruptcies Possible in United States http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4969-Wave-of-Government-Bankruptcies-Possible-in-United-States There have been many news reports lately about the likely possibility that the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory, may be forced into bankruptcy. This is the result of out of control spending by the government for years, and a reduction in tax revenues due to the flight of thousands of people from the island. 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. There are many more and all have one common factor, they are controlled by liberal Democrats who try to cover up their out of control spending with massive tax increases.

Iran Finding Ways to Pursue Nuclear Weapons http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4968-Iran-Finding-Ways-to-Pursue-Nuclear-Weapons German intelligence reports indicate that Iran is continuing to pursue nuclear weapon’s development. Iran agreed not to pursue development of nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief. Germany is prosecuting three German citizens for supplying Iran with 51 valves that can be used for a heavy water reactor. The valves “can be used to develop plutonium for nuclear weapons.” The report says, “Regardless of the number of national and international sanctions and embargoes, countries like Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea are making efforts to optimize corresponding technology.” Iran is believed to be using Chinese front companies to skirt the sanctions.

Democrats Slow Judiciary Nominees http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4967-Democrats-Slow-Judiciary-Nominees Republicans may have to become more aggressive in getting President Trump’s federal judiciary nominees hearings and votes. 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.

Russia Story Heats Up Again http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4966-Russia-Story-Heats-Up-Again The New York Times reported on Sunday that Donald Trump Jr. met with an attorney with connections to Russia. 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://www.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://www.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://www.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.”

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.

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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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”.

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://www.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.

California Democrats Sue Recall Organizers http://www.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.”

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://www.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.”

Global Temperature Data Manipulated to Show Warming http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4943-Global-Temperature-Data-Manipulated-to-Show-Warming According to the authors of a peer-reviewed study on global surface temperature readings, authors conclude that “the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.” While the authors did not challenge the idea that adjustment “to historical data might need to be made”, they went on to say, “logically it would be expected that such historical temperature data adjustments would sometimes raise these temperatures, and sometimes lower them.” However, the authors of the study found that nearly all the adjustments increased the warming trend. “The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.” “Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever —despite current claims of record setting warming.”

Missouri Rolls Back Minimum Wage Increase http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4942-Missouri-Rolls-Back-Minimum-Wage-Increase Politicians in St. Louis Missouri increased the minimum wage to $10 an hour in 2015. 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.”

Even Liberals Don’t Want To Pay More Taxes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4941--Even-Liberals-Don’t-Want-To-Pay-More-Taxes Some of the highest taxed people in the world are in Norway. 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.

Media Leaks Threaten U.S. National Security http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4940-Media-Leaks-Threaten-U.S.-National-Security According to a major report issued by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs there has been un unprecedented number of leaks of sensitive information during the first months of the Trump administration. 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.

Two Liberal Protestors Arrested for Threatening Republican Senator http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4939-Two-Liberal-Protestors-Arrested-for-Threatening-Republican-Senator In Pima County Arizona two protestors were arrested for making death threats against Republican Senator Jeff Flake. 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.

In fact, she wanted the President impeached before he was even inaugurated. Now she has turned her guns on Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson who is also black.

Waters claims Carson knows nothing about the housing needs for the poor since he is wealthy. Now Fox News host Tucker Carlson has confronted her about the fact that she lives in a 6,000 square foot house worth $4.3 million in one of the wealthiest areas of Los Angeles. In addition, her home is far from the district and the people she claims to represent.

Trump Donates First Paycheck to Department of Interior http://www.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.

Media Mainly Ignoring DNC Fraud Suit http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4936-Media-Mainly-Ignoring-DNC-Fraud-Suit The Democrat National Committee is being sued by a number of Democrats who supported Bernie Sanders. 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.

Robert Mueller Hiring Democrat Donors in Russia Probe http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4935-Robert-Mueller-Hiring-Democrat-Donors-in-Russia-Probe In what is apparently a highly partisan move in what is supposed to be a non-partisan investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has hired at least seven lawyers that have donated heavily to Democrat candidates as part of the Russia probe.

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://www.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.

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.

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.

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.

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://www.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.

The mainstream media also continues to state that there is no evidence of any significant voter fraud even after several preliminary investigations.

Mexico Drug Wars Heat Up http://www.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.

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.

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.

Shifting Taxes http://www.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.

The Russians Did It! http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4911-The-Russians-Did-It! Once again Democrats are refusing to accept the fact that they lost a fair election. 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://www.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.

ANTIFA Claims Responsibility for Cutting Optic Cables http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4909-ANTIFA-Claims-Responsibility-for-Cutting-Optic-Cables There have been reports of numerous internet and telephone problems in the San Francisco area in recent months, but there has been no clear explanation of the cause. 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.

California Planning to Become Sanctuary State http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4908-California-Planning-to-Become-Sanctuary-State A bill in the state senate in California is proposing that California become a “sanctuary” state and that all state and law enforcement be required to refuse to cooperate with federal agencies like ICE. 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.

Democrats Trying to Use 25th Amendment to Get Rid of Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4907-Democrats-Trying-to-Use-25th-Amendment-to-Get-Rid-of-Trump In another effort to thwart the will of the American people who elected Donald Trump President of the United States several Democrats in the Senate and House are trying to invoke a provision of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. 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.

ISIS on Its Heels in Raqqa http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4906-ISIS-on-Its-Heels-in-Raqqa U.S. backed forces in Syria have made a major advance in the effort to liberate the Syrian city of Raqqa from ISIS control. 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.

North Korea Launches ICBM http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4905-North-Korea-Launches-ICBM American military officials are extremely concerned by the successful test launch of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile by the North Koreans. According to U.S. officials it is believed that this missile is capable of hitting Alaska as well as the Hawaiian Islands. Despite repeated warnings by the Trump administration Kim Jung Un has continued to ramp up the testing of both long and short range missiles, as well as nuclear warheads.

It is not clear at this point what steps Trump will take in response, but it is expected that he will continue to try and pressure the Chinese and Russians to intervene in some way. In the meantime, the U.S. military is preparing for anything.

Why Crime Fell in Phoenix, Arizona http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4904-Why-Crime-Fell-in-Phoenix,-Arizona Police chief’s in sanctuary cities say that their cities are safer than the cities that turn illegal aliens over to immigration officials. However, The Arizona Police Association said that when Phoenix ended its sanctuary city policy in 2008, overall crime fell by 20 percent the first year. It fell to a 20-year low. Between 2008 and 2009, the murder rate dropped 27 percent. Auto thefts were down 36 percent, and robberies dropped off by 23 percent. Executive Director of the Arizona Police Association Levi Bolton said, “When we were allowed and had the discretion to contact our federal immigration partners, crime fell drastically.”

The Amendment prohibits abortion. Pro-life groups said, “…we can do better for mothers and babies than legalizing something as barbaric and regressive as killing children before they are born.” The Irish government has come under international pressure to overturn the Eighth Amendment and legalize abortion. United Nations bureaucrats have been “particularly insistent” on the legalization of abortion. Most recently a UN committee declared that women’s rights were being violated because of the restrictions on abortion.

Another Health Insurer Leaves Ohio http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4902-Another-Health-Insurer-Leaves-Ohio Premier Health Plan, an insurance company in Ohio, will leave the Obamacare exchanges by the end of 2017. Anthem announced in early June that it also would leave the exchanges. Premier Health considers the uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Healthcare Act to have created too much volatility in the health insurance market. As a result, the company says that it cannot effectively price health insurance in Ohio. Some counties in Ohio will have no options on the exchanges. In spite of leaving the exchanges President Renee George said, ”However, we will continue to offer a range of other insurance plans, including to individuals off of the exchange."

Democrats Try Using 25th Amendment To Remove President http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4901-Democrats-Try-Using-25th-Amendment-To-Remove-President Democrat leaders in the House have tried to tamp down talk of impeaching the president. But some Democratic legislators are taking a different approach. Democrat Jamie Raskin introduced legislation to create a congressional commission to declare President Trump incapacitated. Twenty-five Democrats in the House support the bill including the John Conyers, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee and Debbie Wasserman Schultz the former chair of the DNC. 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://www.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.

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.

Mainstream Media Already Hate Justice Neil Gorsuch http://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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.

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.”

ANTIFA to Target National Cemetery http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4879-ANTIFA-to-Target-National-Cemetery The violent protest group that calls itself ANTIFA and claims to be anti-fascist, but many people say it is actually a group of masked thugs that specializes in surrounding pro-Trump or pro-American demonstrators, pulling a single individual from the crowd and then using various weapons to beat them. However, much to their chagrin many of their targets actually fight back, so they have decided to attack a group that can’t fight back, dead veterans.

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.

Justice Department Gives up on “Redskins” Fight http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4878-Justice-Department-Gives-up-on-“Redskins”-Fight Under orders from Barack Obama the United States Justice Department was intent on imposing “political correctness” on the American people whether they wanted it or not. One of the biggest targets was the Washington Redskins football team. The DOJ wanted the federal courts to order the name changed because it might offend some Native Americans. The owner of the team refused because it was a team tradition and was in honor of Indians.

In fact, many American Indians agreed with the owner and now that the Supreme Court has ruled that applications for trademarks cannot be denied because they might be offensive. The current DOJ is dropping its case against the Redskins.

Liberals Increasing Push for Socialized Medicine http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4877-Liberals-Increasing-Push-for-Socialized-Medicine While they don’t call it that, more and more liberal Democrats in Congress are pushing for socialized medicine. 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.

Immigration Bills Passed by House http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4876-Immigration-Bills-Passed-by-House As predicted yesterday, the Republican controlled House of Representatives passed two important immigration bills today. Both of them were cornerstones of President Trump’s campaign promises to crack down on illegal aliens. The first bill was “Kate’s law” named after Kate Steinle who was murdered in San Francisco by an illegal from Mexico who was a convicted felon who had been deported five times. The law provides mandatory sentences for people deported who return illegally.

The other bill is to punish sanctuary cities who fail to abide by federal law and cooperate with ICE in rounding up illegals. They will lose federal funds.

Trump Travel Restrictions Put in Place http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4875-Trump-Travel-Restrictions-Put-in-Place Following the recent Supreme Court setting aside the lower court decisions enjoining the enforcement of the Executive Order issued by President Trump restricting travel by people coming from six predominantly Muslim countries went into effect last night. These nations include places like Syria, Somalia, and Yemen where there is chaos and virtually no way to vett anybody coming from those countries.

The high court carved out some exceptions for people who have legitimate contacts in the U.S. such as certain relatives or waiting employment. Liberal lawyers from groups like the American Civil Liberties Union are already descending on airports to “assist” individuals affected by the restrictions.

College Student in Virginia Sentenced to Prison for Voter Fraud http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4874-College-Student-in-Virginia-Sentenced-to-Prison-for-Voter-Fraud A student at James Madison University in Virginia has been sentenced to 120 days in jail for knowingly registering a number of deceased individuals to vote in the 2016 election. 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.

Qatar Embassy Object of Protestors. http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4872-Qatar-Embassy-Object-of-Protestors. 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.

FBI Agent Indicted http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4871-FBI-Agent-Indicted An FBI agent was indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and giving a false statement. W. Joseph Astarita’s alleged crimes come after he lied about firing shots at Robert Finicum, a protestor, in Oregon. After the shooting, two gunshots could not be accounted for. 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.”

EPA Rescinds Obama Regulations http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4870-EPA-Rescinds-Obama-Regulations The Environmental Protection Agency will rescind the Obama Administration’s “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) regulations. The Obama Administration redefined “navigable waters” to include “intermittent streams.” This gave the EPA authority over water use on 247 million acres of farmland. 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.”

Justice Department Backs Down on Redskins Trademark http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4869-Justice-Department-Backs-Down-on-Redskins-Trademark The NFL’s Redskins will get their trademark back. 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.

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://www.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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

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.

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.

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.

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://www.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.

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.

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.

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://www.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.

In a serious of stress tests conducted by the Federal Reserve, banks were tested to see how they would perform under difficult economic circumstances. According to Yellen, all the banks “passed the quantitative parts of the stress tests.” Yellen asserted that the Fed has learned a lot of lessons about risk and of the Fed’s need to be ever watchful. The Fed chair predicted that another financial crisis such as the 2008 crisis was not likely “in our lifetime.”

Republicans Delay Vote on Healthcare Bill http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4848-Republicans-Delay-Vote-on-Healthcare-Bill In the face of growing opposition by Republican members of the Senate to the proposed healthcare bill a vote has been delayed until after the July 4th recess. 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.

DHS to Begin Construction of Border Wall http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4847-DHS-to-Begin-Construction-of-Border-Wall The Department of Homeland Security is moving forward with one of President Donald Trump’s major campaign promises, the building of a wall on the southern border to stem the tide of illegal immigrants that have been flooding across the border for years. 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://www.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.

The attacks appear to be using the same “Eternal Blue” code that experts believe was stolen from the U.S. National Security Agency. Targets of this latest attack include Ukrainian banks, the largest oil company in Russia, and numerous other multi-national firms.

Cyber security experts are pointing out that businesses and government agencies all over the globe are woefully unprepared to defend themselves against attacks of this kind and they will undoubtedly continue and increase in intensity. These same experts point out that there are precautions that can be taken, and it needs to become a priority.

Trump Threatens Syria over Use of Chemical Weapons http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4844-Trump-Threatens-Syria-over-Use-of-Chemical-Weapons American intelligence agencies have seen evidence that Syria may be preparing to once again use chemical weapons against its own people and perhaps even against coalition forces. This has led President Donald Trump to warn that if that occurs there will be “dire” consequences for the Assad regime.

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.

House to Vote on Kate’s Law http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4843-House-to-Vote-on-Kate’s-Law Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan has announced that the House will vote on two important bills this week dealing with illegal immigrants. The first is the bill referred to as Kate’s law that will impose mandatory criminal penalties on illegal aliens that reenter the United States after being deported. The law is named for Kate Steinle, the young women who was shot to death in San Francisco by an illegal who had been deported multiple times.

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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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://www.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.

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://www.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.

SCOTUS Rules in Favor of Missouri Church http://www.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.

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.

On Friday the president tweeted, “The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it.

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.

German interior minister, Thomas de Maiziere said, “We can’t allow there to be areas that are practically outside the law.”

Healthcare Mess http://www.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.

Meddling in Iran http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4818-Meddling-in-Iran Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas says, “The policy of the United States should be regime change in Iran.” The Senator wants to push diplomatic, economic and covert actions against Iran. 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.

Books Give TSA Problems http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4817-Books-Give-TSA-Problems You may be required to take out your books when you go through security at the airport. The TSA has been testing new approaches to security involving books and paper products. New screening processes will mean that passengers would have to put paper products into separate bins. The ACLU says, “There is a long history of special legal protection for the privacy of one’s reading habits in the United States . . . . “ The TSA says it is not looking at the subject matter or the content of the books. Sometimes books and other paper products give TSA screeners difficulty in looking at scans of carry on items. The TSA is testing the new approach in Missouri and California. And plans to roll it out nationwide when it finds out how to do it with the least inconvenience to passengers.

CNN Busted For “Fake News” Scandal http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4816-CNN-Busted-For-“Fake-News”-Scandal The Trump administration and others have been accusing mainstream media outlets of “fake news” for months, and now CNN has been caught red handed.

The liberal network that was essentially a propaganda organ for the Hillary Clinton campaign and has been very critical of the Trump presidency recently ran another story citing a single unnamed source. The source claimed that a Senate investigation team was looking into a meeting of a Trump transition team member and an executive of a 10 billion dollar Russian investment firm.

The story turned out to be entirely fabricated. There was no such firm and no meeting. CNN was forced to delete the story and has supposedly set up strict rules for vetting any other stories about Russia.

ISIS Hacking Government Websites http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4815-ISIS-Hacking-Government-Websites In a new tactic designed to terrorize Americans ISIS recently hacked and left threatening messages on ten state government websites in Ohio, including that of Governor John Kasich’s office. A similar hack occurred at Brookhaven, New York, a town on Long Island. All of the websites in both locations have been restored and an investigation is under way to try and determine the origin of the attacks and prevent further interruptions.

The attacks coincided with the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and authorities believe it was a warning that other incursions of a similar nature may occur in conjunction with actual terrorist activity designed to kill and injure Americans.

Democrats Behind “Russian Dossier”? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4814-Democrats-Behind-“Russian-Dossier”? During the presidential campaign a document was produced that claimed to be a Russian dossier on Donald Trump showing that he had massive financial ties to Russia, and was even being blackmailed by the Russians. The Clinton campaign and its liberal allies in the mainstream media immediately jumped on the story, but it quickly began to unravel and the dossier proved to contain bogus information and not to have originated in Russia at all.

Now the shadowy firm that apparently commissioned the document is being investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee over its ties to the Clinton campaign and the Democrat Party. The company, Fusion GPS, is refusing to comply with the committee’s request for documents and other information.

New York Reeling Under Minimum Wage Hikes http://www.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://www.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.

Americans Reportedly Getting Tired Of Russia Conspiracy Probes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4811-Americans-Reportedly-Getting-Tired-Of-Russia-Conspiracy-Probes A new survey by the Harvard-Harris poll shows that Americans are getting fed up by the continuous emphasis on the Russia conspiracy theories. 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.

Senate Panel to Investigate Loretta Lynch http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4810-Senate-Panel-to-Investigate-Loretta-Lynch The Senate Judiciary committee has launched an investigation into the actions of former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The inquiry is focusing on the claim that she actively interfered in the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton and her use of a private server during her term as Secretary of State. This private server was used along with some other devices to transmit emails that contained everything from sensitive to highly classified information,

According to testimony by former FBI head James Comey Lynch actively tried to influence him to limit the inquiry and keep Hillary from being prosecuted.

Debating Campus Speaking Events http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4809-Debating-Campus-Speaking-Events During a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Senator Diane Feinstein argued in favor of universities canceling speaking events when they may lead to violence. Pushing back on Feinstein was UCLA law Professor Eugene Volokh. He argued that First Amendment does not protect a Heckler’s veto. In fact, it ends up being the suppression of free speech by government under the guise of concern of violence.

“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://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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.

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.’”

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.

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.

“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.

New Sniper Record http://www.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://www.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.

Deep State Torture http://www.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.

Houston Selling Some Assets http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4792-Houston-Selling-Some-Assets The city of Houston, Texas is selling $2 million worth of city streets and utility easements. The city council is trying to close a budget gap of $123 million. The city sold off some of its assets in previous budget cycles to balance its budgets. 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.

Russian Hacking Blown Way Out of Proportion http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4791-Russian-Hacking-Blown-Way-Out-of-Proportion Many states have their voter registration rolls online. Researchers and political operatives can find names, addresses, and contribution amounts. It’s public and completely legal for any person to examine. The Wall Street Journal ran a headline on Wednesday: Russia Targeted 21 States for Election Hacking, Official Says.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/russia-hacking-hearings-to-focus-on-state-level-1498037401

One sentence stands out. “Much of the data targeted was voter-registration information.” If this is the alleged Russian hack, then nothing much happened at all. It makes for great political theater and scare headlines. But it’s a non-story meant to divert the attention of Americans.

No Tapes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4790-No-Tapes President Trump announced on Thursday that he was just kidding about hinting at the existence of tapes of his conversations with former FBI Director, James Comey. He released two Tweets, likely written by his attorneys, flatly denying the existence of any recordings. “With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are “tapes” or recording of my conversations with James Comes, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.” Earlier, in response to a FOIA request from the Wall Street Journal, the Secret Service said that they did not have any tapes or recordings of conversations of President Trump and James Comes.

Republican Healthcare Legislation http://www.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!

Pelosi Under Increasing Fire from Fellow Democrats http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4788-Pelosi-Under-Increasing-Fire-from-Fellow-Democrats After two more Democrat losses in special elections for the House of Representatives, including the devastating loss in Georgia’s 6th district where Democrats fully expected to win, a small, but growing number of Democrat House members are questioning the leadership of Nancy Pelosi. Republicans are successfully making Pelosi a target in House elections and it will certainly continue in 2018. In the meantime, some Democrats are getting worried about Pelosi’s garbled and almost incoherent speeches where she repeats words and spends much of her time singing her own praises. In light of this, it is expected that the challenges to the house minority leader will continue to grow.

Travel Bans Okay to Support Liberal Causes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4787-Travel-Bans-Okay-to-Support-Liberal-Causes Apparently, travel bans are okay if they support liberal causes, but terrible if they are designed to protect American citizens from potential terrorists. 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.”

Threats on Republican Members of Congress Spike http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4786-Threats-on-Republican-Members-of-Congress-Spike The attempt to assassinate Rep. 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.

Democrats Vow to Block Republican Health Care Bill http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4785-Democrats-Vow-to-Block-Republican-Health-Care-Bill In an apparent effort to cling to the rapidly collapsing Obamacare system, senate democrats are vowing to block the passage of the new health care bill proposed by Republicans in the senate. 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.

Government Consultant Charged with Espionage http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4784-Government-Consultant-Charged-with-Espionage Kevin Mallory, a 60 year old U.S. Army veteran has been arrested and charged with espionage for allegedly selling top secret documents to the Communist Chinese government. He has worked over the years as a special agent for the Diplomatic Security Service for the State Department as well as for other federal agencies and government contractors. He has lately been working as a self-employed consultant.

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.

Hillary Would Probably Lose again http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4783-Hillary-Would-Probably-Lose-again The democrats are continuing to claim that the election was stolen from Hillary Clinton and Trump is not a legitimate President. 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://www.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://www.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.”

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.

Obamacare Takes Hit http://www.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.

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.

Policing Thought and Speech in Germany http://www.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://www.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://www.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.

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.

Terrorist Attack in Flint, Michigan http://www.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.

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.

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.

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://www.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.

Tipping Uber Drivers http://www.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.

Russian Fighter Buzzes U.S. Air Force Plane http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4759-Russian-Fighter-Buzzes-U.S.-Air-Force-Plane A U.S. reconnaissance aircraft was buzzed by a Russian fighter over the Baltic Sea on Monday. The fighter came within five feet of the American plane at one point. The Russian jet was armed with air-to-air missiles. It’s flight maneuvers were “provocative.” There have been more than 35 interactions between American and Russian jets and naval vessels since June 2. The interaction came one day after Russia announced that any U.S. plane flying west of the Euphrates River would be a target.

Democrats Lose Again in Two More House Races http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4758-Democrats-Lose-Again-in-Two-More-House-Races Hollywood leftists and east coast liberals poured millions of dollars into the election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional district in the belief that they could somehow use their hatred of President Trump to win the long held Republican seat vacated by Tom Price when he became the Secretary of HHS. 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.

Another City Decides to Revise History http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4757-Another-City-Decides-to-Revise-History The latest city to decide to decimate the cultural history of the south is Orlando, Florida where the mayor has ordered that a statue called “Johnny Reb” that has been in place since 1911 must be dismantled and removed from a public park. 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. This comes after they failed in their attempt to use a backhoe to illegally dig up the grave of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Tensions Escalate in the Air Over the Middle East. http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4756-Tensions-Escalate-in-the-Air-Over-the-Middle-East. For the second time in a few weeks American fighters have shot down an Iranian built drone directed by the Syrian army that has ventured into air space near positions occupied by the United States and its coalition partners. This has happened during the period when a U.S. fighter jet shot down a Syrian military jet that was dropping bombs near coalition positions.

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.

Senate Republicans about to Release their Version of the Healthcare Bill http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4755-Senate-Republicans-about-to-Release-their-Version-of-the-Healthcare-Bill The House of Representatives has passed its version of a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare and sent it to the Senate. 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.

Questions Continue about Ship Collision http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4754-Questions-Continue-about-Ship-Collision Seven U.S. sailors died aboard the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald when it collided early in the morning with a Japanese container ship not far from the coast of Japan. Their bodies have been sent back to the states, but virtually none of the questions about the cause of the collision have been answered.

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.

Belgian Troops Stop Terrorist Attack http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4753-Belgian-Troops-Stop-Terrorist-Attack An apparent Islamic Terrorist wearing a vest packed with explosives and shouting Allahu Akbar was shot down by Belgian troops in the Brussels train station before he was able to detonate the bomb. Brussels has been a major target of Islamic extremists along with Paris and London.

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. These have mostly been lone wolf attacks that are inspired by ISIS and other terrorists groups, but not necessarily planned by them. That makes even harder for the authorities to predict, and prevent the attacks.

The liberal media immediately labeled it as a hate crime caused by the anti-Muslim mood allegedly created by the Trump administration. It turns out this was not the case at all. The innocent Muslim teenager was beaten to death by an illegal immigrant from El Salvador welding a baseball bat in an apparent road rage incident.

ICE confirms that the suspect, Darwin Martinez Torres, had been on its radar for detention, and the Fairfax County police have confirmed that the incident is not a hate crime.

Behind-the-scenes meetings have been taking place since President Trump left the Middle East in May. During his visit, the president said that both Israelis and Palestinians were ready for peace. A peace agreement would take time and many visits between negotiators.

St. Louis Cardinals Attacked for Christian Day Spokesman http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4749-St.-Louis-Cardinals-Attacked-for-Christian-Day-Spokesman Gay rights activists are attacking the St. Louis Cardinals having former Cardinals star, Lance Berkman, serve as spokesman for “Christian Day.” Berkman recently spoke out against transgender boys posing as girls. 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. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.”

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://www.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.

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://www.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.”

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 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.

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.

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.

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://www.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 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.

Seven Sailors Killed in Collision http://www.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.

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.

U.S. Plane Takes out Syrian Jet Attacking Coalition Forces http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4729-U.S.-Plane-Takes-out-Syrian-Jet-Attacking-Coalition-Forces In the first incident of its kind since the Syrian civil war started in 2011 an U.S. Air Force jet shot down a Syrian jet fighter that was attacking coalition positions including American forces who are training resistance fighters against the Assad regime. 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.

Elizabeth Warren Issues Warning to Donald Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4728-Elizabeth-Warren-Issues-Warning-to-Donald-Trump Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is best known for her abrasive manner and hysterical rhetoric against anyone who dares to disagree with her far left position, has now issued a warning to the President. She has stated that President Trump “has not seen nasty yet”. It appears she believes being nasty is the way for her to continue to be the darling of the far left that now firmly controls the Democrat party. She clearly believes that she should be the next Democrat nominee for President. To many Republicans that could be the best thing to happen to their party. After all, this woman falsified applications for college grants by claiming she was of American Indian heritage. That was later proven to be an outright lie.

Trump Lawyer Says President is not Under Investigation http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4727-Trump-Lawyer-Says-President-is-not-Under-Investigation Jay Sekulow, one of President Donald Trump’s personal attorneys was adamant yesterday on the Sunday talk shows that the President is not under personal investigation for anything by any federal agency including the FBI. This directly contradicts the mainstream drumbeat that continues to claim that according to their famous unnamed sources the President is being investigated for crimes including obstruction of justice.

Sekulow correctly pointed out that there is no factual evidence to prove that anything defined as obstruction occurred. The President never ordered anyone in the Justice Department or the FBI to do anything, and the chief executive can fire the FBI director anytime he wants.

Insider Attacks increasing in Afghanistan http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4726-Insider-Attacks-increasing-in-Afghanistan In the last two weeks three American soldiers have been killed and seven wounded by so-called insider attacks at U.S. Afghan army bases. 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.

ANTIFA Protestor Stabs Police Horse in the Neck http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4725-ANTIFA-Protestor-Stabs-Police-Horse-in-the-Neck While a mounted Pennsylvania State Police officer was protecting peaceful protestors in Harrisburg during an anti-Sharia march violent ANTFA radicals showed up to attack the marchers. One of the so-called anti fascists, Lisa Simon took things a step further and stabbed the officer’s horse in the neck. She apparently was trying to stampede the animal so it would careen into the crowd and cause injuries.

However, the horse Sampson held his ground and continued with his duties. Simon was wrestled to the ground by other officers, arrested, and charged with multiple felonies. She is still in jail on a $100,000 bond, but her group of fellow radicals claims the charges are fabricated.

The sailors were located in the damaged portion of the ship that had originally been impossible to access.

Both U.S. and Japanese authorities are investigating the cause of the crash that occurred at around 2:30 in the morning. Initial reports indicate that the container ship was sailing erratically and not following normal navigation rules of the sea.

Approval Numbers Increase for Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4723-Approval-Numbers-Increase-for-Trump President Trump’s approval numbers are at 50 percent according to the Rasmussen presidential daily tracking poll. 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.

NYC Politician Wonders Why Storefronts Are Empty http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4722-NYC-Politician-Wonders-Why-Storefronts-Are-Empty A New York City politician wants to fine landlords of commercial property if they don’t rent their properties. 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.

More Troops Heading to Afghanistan. http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4721-More-Troops-Heading-to-Afghanistan. The Trump Administration is ramping up the number of troops in Afghanistan. 4,000 additional soldiers will be sent. The decision to commit additional troops was made by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. President Trump gave Mattis the authority to determine troop levels. This contrasts with the Obama Administration. President Obama was deeply involved in making decisions. The additional troops will train and advise Afghan forces. Some will conduct countertenor operations agains the Taliban and ISIS. The Islamic State has been successful in with taking back territory once controlled by U.S. and Afghan forces.

Amazon has been experimenting with “how people pick, pay for and get groceries delivered.” Owning hundreds of stores will allow Amazon to have a physical footprint. In addition to experimenting with groceries, it will give Amazon a way to deliver other products faster and more cheaply. Shipping costs are one of Amazon’s biggest costs. Grocery industry stocks fell significantly. Kroger was the biggest loser, falling as much as 17 percent on Friday. Investors think that the grocery industry will change significantly over the next several years.

Minimum Wage Affects Restaurant http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4719-Minimum-Wage-Affects-Restaurant In Washington the minimum wage is currently $11 an hour. 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.

Starbucks Employees Mock Customer http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4718--Starbucks-Employees-Mock-Customer Kayla Hart wore a Donald Trump shirt into a Starbucks on Wednesday in North Carolina. 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.”

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.

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.

Russian Probe Uncovers Questions About Loretta Lynch http://www.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.

"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.

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.

Occupational Freedom http://www.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.

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://www.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.

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.

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://www.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.

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.

Federal Reserve Increases Interest Rates http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4698-Federal-Reserve-Increases-Interest-Rates The Federal Reserve’s overnight borrowing rate was raised on Wednesday. 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.

EU Sues Poland, Hungary, and Czech Republic http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4697-EU-Sues-Poland,-Hungary,-and-Czech-Republic The European Commission sued Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. These countries crimes? They refused to accept Muslim migrants into their countries. This refusal put them “in breach of their legal obligations” to other member states. The legal action will take months, even years. The EU Court could potentially impose fines. The three countries cite security concerns, pointing out the escalation of Islamic attacks since 2015. To their credit, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic have had little if any terrorist attacks on their soil.

Erdogan’s Bodyguards To Be Charged http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4696-Erdogan’s-Bodyguards-To-Be-Charged When Turkish President Erdogan visited the Turkish Embassy during his May 16th visit, his bodyguards left the Turkish compound and beat up several protesters. In video the bodyguards are seen choking a woman, shoving police, and punching a man. Protesters gathered outside the embassy to expose the Turkish regime’s abuses of power. The vicious assaults have been under investigation by the D.C. police, State Department, and Secret Service. Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that charges would be announced on Thursday. The Turkish ambassador was summoned to the State Department told “in the strongest possible terms” that the behavior was wrong and a violation of free speech rights in America.

Rare Surgery http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4695-Rare-Surgery Conjoined twin girls underwent an 11 hour surgery last week to separate them. Abby and Erin Delaney were joined at the head. 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://www.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.

Senate Passes Sanctions on Russia http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4693-Senate-Passes-Sanctions-on-Russia In a 97-2 vote, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that would impose new sanctions on Russia and Iran. 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.

Feds Serious About War on MS-13 http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4692-Feds-Serious-About-War-on-MS-13 In the one month since President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared all-out war on the violent MS-13 street gang it has been proven to already be working in places like Long Island, New York. 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://www.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.

These named countries received this declaration during the Obama administration and cannot provide information about their citizens to allow the U.S. to properly vet them.

Several United States District Courts and Court of Appeals have struck down the enforcement of the order as a result of lawsuits filed by several states and open border groups. Texas leads fifteen other states that have filed a brief with the United States Supreme Court asking that the order upheld. Other states include Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, and North Dakota.

Iranians Train Laser on U.S. Helicopter http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4689-Iranians-Train-Laser-on-U.S.-Helicopter In what may be one of the most dangerous provocations yet against the United States Navy by the Iranians one of their vessels trained a laser beam on the cockpit of a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in the Strait of Hormuz. 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.

Several people were wounded including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise from Louisiana. Fortunately, since Scalise is a leader in Congress he had a security detail with him consisting of two Capitol police officers.

When the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker from Illinois, opened fire the heroic police officers returned fire and killed him. Both of the officers were wounded. According to witnesses, if they had not been there it would have been a massacre.

Establishment Candidates Win in Virginia http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4686-Establishment-Candidates-Win-in-Virginia Virginia’s gubernatorial elections are the year after presidential elections. 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. Gillespie is an establishment Republican who served as Chairman of the Republican National Committee under George H. W. Bush. Democrat voters turned out in far greater numbers than did Republican voters.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

Gianforte body-slammed a reporter the day before the election and broke the reporter’s glasses. He won’t be serving jail time. Instead he was given a six-month deferred sentence. Additionally he has to perform 40 hours of community service, and attend 20 hours of anger management. In exchange for the reporter not filing a lawsuit, Gianforte promised a $50,000 donation to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

“No Tapes” Say Secret Service http://www.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.

Obamacare Poorly Rated http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4665-Obamacare-Poorly-Rated Gallup is out with a poll on how Americans rate their healthcare. 81 percent of Americans give higher marks to healthcare purchased from a source other than the government exchange. 74 percent of Americans who purchased healthcare through the Obamacare exchange rate their healthcare coverage as excellent or good. 26 rate the coverage as fair or poor. 39 percent of individuals who are in poor health were more likely to rate the Obamacare coverage as fair or poor. Older Americans and those with higher incomes gave Obamacare higher ratings.

New Jersey High School Students have Yearbook Pictures Altered http://www.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://www.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.

Time Warner, the parent company of CNN is continuing its sponsorship and one CNN’s commentators calls the play a “masterpiece.

The New York Times has also defended the play and the city of New York continues to use taxpayer dollars to keep the play going. Several conservative pundits have wondered what the reaction of the press would have been if a play had depicted the assassination of Barack Obama when he was President.

House Democrat to File Articles of Impeachment against Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4661-House-Democrat-to-File-Articles-of-Impeachment-against-Trump Liberal California Democrat Brad Sherman has prepared Articles of Impeachment of President Trump he plans to file in the House of Representatives. The grounds for impeachment of the President or any other federal official are the same under Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution. Trump must be charged with and found guilty of “high crimes or misdemeanors”

Sherman has pronounced the President guilty of obstruction of justice for allegedly trying to “pressure” James Comey into dropping the inquiry into General Michael Flynn, although Comey has said that the President did not order him to drop the investigation or pressure him to do so. A majority of the House would have to pass the articles of impeachment and then two thirds of the Senate would have to have found the President guilty after a trial in the Senate.

Woman Granted Clemency by Obama Going Back to Jail http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4660-Woman-Granted-Clemency-by-Obama-Going-Back-to-Jail A Texas woman given clemency by President Obama is on her way back to federal prison. Carol Denise Richardson, 49, was convicted in 2006 of possession and intent to distribute crack cocaine. She was given a life sentence that was commuted by Obama in 2016 along with the sentences of over 1700 other convicted felons,

Richardson repeatedly violated the terms of her probation and recently was arrested for stealing some laundry detergent that she apparently intended to sell to purchase drugs. She has been sent back to prison or 14 months and then will go back on probation. The judge expressed great disappointment that she had wasted the second chance given to her.

Ninth Circuit Shoots Down Travel Ban http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4659-Ninth-Circuit-Shoots-Down-Travel-Ban In a decision that was not unexpected the notoriously liberal federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has up held a lower court decision to strike down the travel restrictions imposed by President Trump on residents from certain countries that want to enter the United States.

Once again the justices decided to ignore federal law and the United States Constitution and rely instead on the personal political agendas of members of the court. Thus the decision seems to be based mostly on the fact that they didn’t like some of Trump’s tweets and speeches, many made prior to the election. The case will now go to the Supreme Court.

UN Wakes Up to Terror Tunnels Under UN Premises http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4658-UN-Wakes-Up-to-Terror-Tunnels-Under-UN-Premises For years the Israeli government has warned of the existence of Hamas terror tunnels in Palestine. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) never took the warnings seriously. Instead the UN Agency condemned Israeli military strikes designed to destroy the tunnels. On Friday the Agency was forced to admit that two Hamas terror tunnels ran under “two adjacent Agency schools in Maghazi camp.” The tunnels were discovered during the construction of a building for the school. “UNRWA condemns the existence of such tunnels in the strongest possible terms. It is unacceptable that students and staff are placed at risk in such a way.”

There are currently about 100 judicial vacancies. During the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Trump promised to nominate federal judges with the same type of judicial philosophy as the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The vacancies within the judiciary allow President Trump to moderate the radical leftist direction of the federal courts. So far the president has nominate over 20 conservative candidates for district court positions.

It’s estimated that Macron’s party may end up with 445 seats. One of the biggest majorities in 60 years. Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Front party continued to take a beating after last month’s presidential election loss. The National Front party is forecast to garner anywhere from one to to ten seats. The Socialist party is predicted to lose 200 seats. Only 49 percent of the electorate turned out for Sunday’s parliamentary elections. One of the lowest participation rates in six decades.

Logical Outworking of Abortion http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4655-Logical-Outworking-of-Abortion The Iowa Supreme Court ruled 6-1 that parents of a severely disabled child may sue the physicians because they did not inform the parents of test results showing abnormalities. Although the mother testified that she “really enjoys spending time with” her son “and gets a lot of happiness from him,” both parents say they would have aborted their child. According to the opinion, the parents “seek to recover their ordinary and extraordinary costs of raising the child and their loss of income and emotional distress.” Dissenting Justice Edward Mansfield wrote that the majority opinion relies on the term “severely disabled child”. But the term is not defined by the court. “What if testing indicates the child will be born blind or without a hand? Is that enough,” to say the child is severely disabled? “In my view, the court’s ruling leads to a slippery slope,” wrote Justice Mansfield.

Delta Airlines Kills Sponsorship for Julius Caesar http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4654-Delta-Airlines-Kills-Sponsorship-for-Julius-Caesar A Julius Caesar play in New York City’s Public Theater lost its Delta Airlines sponsorship. The character of Julius Caesar is played by a Donald Trump like character. The character has the same hair style, long tie, and verbal manner as the president. Particularly gruesome is the murder which features a stabbing with excessive stage blood. “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the company said in a statement. The left is so enraged by the win of Donald Trump that some people on the left are pushing the assassination meme.

Fifty-First State? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4653-Fifty-First-State? Puerto Ricans voted in a non-binding referendum on Sunday to choose to join the United States as the 51st state. For something so drastic, voter turnout was a mere 23 percent. The lowest level of participation in any election since 1967. The desire for statehood is particularly appealing because the territory is bankrupt. It needs access to US government programs to channel money into the island. In light of secessionist type movements around the world such as Brexit, Catalonia, and Calexit, Puerto Rico is taking a different approach. The island wants to join the world’s largest debtor nation. Puerto Ricans already pay into Social Security, Medicare, and local taxes. Puerto Ricans would become subject to the U.S. income tax. Puerto Ricans might be better off voting for independence.

Dozens were beaten, pushed to the ground, and their hands were twisted. 8 Christians are in custody. The church was demolished after it was declared to be an illegal structure. One Christian observer said that the destruction was reminiscent of what the Japanese did in China during World War II. Chinese government officials took phones, personal property, money, and smashed the offering boxes. The Communist Party began a new wave of oppressing religious freedom in the last several months.

Economy Growing Under Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4651-Economy-Growing-Under-Trump Despite the growing media and Democrat frenzy against President Trump and his administration the public continues to see the President fulfilling his promises, particularly when it comes to the economy. Since his inauguration the stock market has continued its surge, unemployment has reached a 16 year low, and the economy is projected to grow at a rate of 2.3 percent this year, considerably higher than last year’s growth of only 1.6 percent. Ironically, the democrats who claim to represent the middle class are so intent on destroying Trump they seem willing to bring down the U.S. economy by blocking his legislative agenda in order to do so.

Delta Airlines and Bank of America have both withdrawn their support. This came after critics pointed out that this production of the play glorifies the assassination of a sitting U.S. President by a group of women and minorities. This reaction is not surprising after the public backlash against the picture of Kathy Griffin holding a bloody mask depicting the severed head of the President.

This is not the first time such a vote has been held, but this time the turnout was unusually low with several major political parties boycotting the referendum. While Puerto Rico has long been a U.S. territory and its citizens are granted U.S. citizenship they only have one representative in congress with limited voting power. In any case, it is up to congress to grant statehood and it has never been inclined to do so regardless of which party is in control. Since statehood would probably mean two more Democrats in the Senate, the current congress is even less likely to grant the request.

Senior Harland Fletcher refused because he said that he would be defacing the uniform in violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

California’s Path to Bankruptcy http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4644--California’s-Path-to-Bankruptcy The California state Senate voted to pass a single-payer healthcare bill. The legislation will have to be passed by the state Assembly and signed by the governor. The legislation would provide free healthcare to any “individual whose primary place of abode is in the state, without regard to the individual’s immigration status.” This leaves open the likelihood of people flooding into California, obtaining residency, and getting onto the program. The single-payer program would cover “all medical care determined to be medically appropriate by the member’s healthcare provider.” And plan members “shall not be required to pay any premium, copayment, coinsurance, deductible, and any other form of cost sharing for all covered benefits.” If enacted, the legislation would cost the state over $400 billion a year.

Christian’s Vanish in the Middle East http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4643--Christian’s-Vanish-in-the-Middle-East Since 2011, more than half of the Christians living in Syria and Iraq have left the region or have been killed. It’s estimated that Iraq’s Christian population has fallen 100,000 over the last three years. Even more remarkably, since the 1990s, the Christian population has fallen from an estimated 1.4 million to an estimated 200,000. The number of Christians leaving Syria is thought to be between 300,0000 and 1.4 million. Many factors contributed to the decline. War, destruction of Christian towns, emigration, and loss of opportunity have all been instrumental. The European country of Hungary is working to help Christians stay in their homelands. Hungary has donated 5 million euros towards efforts to aid Christians in the Middle East. The money has been spent rebuilding churches, houses, and a hospital.

He’s running on the girl’s track team and is racking up wins. The self-imposed pressure to be politically correct has tied school officials, parents, and girls on opposing teams in knots. Finally, some newspaper columnists are beginning to point out the inequity of having a biological male athlete competing against girls. Harford Courant columnist Jeff Jacob wrote, “Humanity counts. So does biology.” However, “For me, somebody who has observed sports and written about all kinds of athletes for four decades, the integrity of the state competition for these two races Tuesday was compromised.” It’s a good start. But one is left wondering what it will take for the left to stop being science deniers of basic biology.

Deep State Asserts Its Supremacy http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4640-Deep-State-Asserts-Its-Supremacy President Trump reportedly told James Comey 'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go." James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that understood this to be an order from President Trump to end the investigation into the Michael Flynn. Comey said that he met with his “FBI senior leadership” and decided not to comply with the order and not tell anyone at the Department of Justice. There are two possible conclusions to draw from this. Either Mr. Comey is lying about his interpretation of the president’s statement as being an order. He’s using his interpretation to trap the president in an obstruction of justice charge. Or, if Mr. Comey did understand this to be an order, then he’s asserting the unprecedented supremacy of the FBI to decide whether or not to comply with a presidential order or whether or not to inform a Deputy Attorney General. Mr. Comey seems to take on a lot of power and responsibility that is not his to make.

Silver Lining for Tories http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4639-Silver-Lining-for-Tories Britain’s Conservative party fell seven seats short of a governing majority. British Prime Minister Theresa May will try to form a coalition government with the Irish Democrat Unionist Party (DUP). The DUP holds ten seats and puts a coalition government tantalizingly close. While, the irish Democrat Unionist Party is socially conservative and pro-Brexit, it’s main concerns are Northern Irish issues. During the election, Theresa May issued a manifesto taking a centre-left position. A coalition government with the DUP would likely force the Prime Minister to compromise on the manifesto and actually become a conservative party once again.

The president is reportedly frustrated with the way in which the Justice Department is defending the executive order restricting travel from six countries. As well, President Trump is frustrated that Sessions recused himself from any Russia investigation matter. The president saw the recusal as backing down from a fight and giving in to the president’s political opponents. It was revealed early in the week that Sessions had offered to resign. When asked at a daily briefing early in the week, Press Secretary Sean Spicer could not say whether or not the Attorney General had the confidence of the president. The White House statement tamps down speculation that Sessions is on his way out.

Historic Change to Japanese Monarchy http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4635-Historic-Change-to-Japanese-Monarchy The Japanese parliament passed legislation allowing the Emperor to abdicate. According to imperial law, sitting emperors cannot abdicate. Emperor Akihito is 83 and believes that his age is hindering his ability to serve. The Imperial Family reduced their public appearances beginning in 2016. The Emperor’s eldest son, Crown Price Naruhito, would inherit the Chrysanthemum Throne. The Japanese monarchy is the oldest hereditary monarchy in the world.

Bernie Sanders’ Unconstitutional Religious Test http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4634-Bernie-Sanders’-Unconstitutional-Religious-Test On Wednesday Senator Bernie Sanders attacked the Christian faith of Russell Vought, the nominee for deputy White House budget director. Vought authored a piece for the Resurgent, writing, “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned.” Bernie Sanders wondered if the statement was Islamophobic and made it clear he thought that was not respectful of other religions. Sanders closed out his questioning saying, “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.” The US Constitution forbids a religious test to hold office, even for those citizens and nominees Senator Sanders does not like.

Hung Parliament http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4632-Hung-Parliament Conservatives lost their outright majority in Parliament. They may fall 4 seats short of a majority. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party increased its representation and may have 261 seats. When no party wins an outright majority, it means there is a hung parliament. There will be uncertainty until one party is able to put together a governing coalition. If the Tories cannot form a coalition, Corbyn will be invited to form a government. When Theresa May called snap elections two months ago, it seemed certain that the Tories would retain their governing majority or even increase their representation. Theresa May did a poor job campaigning, not even showing up for some events. In the aftermath of three terrorist attacks, it came out that as head of MI5, she’d cut the police force by 20,000 police. She was regarded as not being able to deal seriously with the terror threat.

Record Democrat Fundraising http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4631-Record-Democrat-Fundraising Democrats set a new fundraising record in Georgia 6th Congressional district. Jon Ossoff raised $15.3 million in the last two months. Overall, he’s raised $23 million. Most of it is from outside the district. 1 in 20 donations are coming from within the state. It has become the most expensive House race in history. National Democrats focused on the race after Trump won the district by only two percentage points. Democrats are hoping a win in Georgia’s Sixth will be an early indicator of a Democrat wave in 2018.

ISIS Warns Muslims from Going to Locations Where “Crusaders” Gather http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4630-ISIS-Warns-Muslims-from-Going-to-Locations-Where-“Crusaders”-Gather In its online magazine ISIS has warned Muslims to avoid areas where “Crusaders” are gathered because these are areas where they plan to have their soldiers launch attacks including bombings, vehicle attacks, and cutting the throats of infidels. Obviously, ISIS is planning more attacks on targets in Europe and possibly in the United States with a particular focus during their religious period of Ramadan.

Ramadan has only been going on for a few weeks and there have already been several major attacks in Great Britain and smaller attacks in Paris and even Canada. Unfortunately, more can be expected as the radical Islamic Jihadists continue their campaign to kill anyone who disagrees with them.

Democrats Throwing Unprecedented Funds into Georgia Campaign http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4629-Democrats-Throwing-Unprecedented-Funds-into-Georgia-Campaign The race to fill the Georgia Sixth District Seat in the United States House of Representative vacated by HHS director Tom Price has now become the most expensive House race in history. The Democrats are desperate to win this seat after suffering several defeats in other states where they ran other anti-Trump candidates.

The Democrat standard bearer is a young, charismatic candidate named Jon Ossoff who has raised an astounding $23 million dollars for his campaign, much of it coming from Hollywood elites and others outside of the state. His opponent Republican Karen Handel has raised far less, but the polls have tightened to a virtual tie due to the fact that Ossoff does not even live in the district he seeks to represent, and had what most observers describe as a disastrous performance in his only debate with Handel.

North Korea Eyes Using Nukes in EMP Attack http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4628-North-Korea-Eyes-Using-Nukes-in-EMP-Attack Amid growing concerns over the fact that the communist regime in North Korea has an estimated 13 to 30 nuclear weapons and is advancing its technology when it comes to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles there appears to be no imminent threat of a major nuclear attack on South Korea and even the United States.

However, of more immediate concern is a single missile with a nuclear weapon being launched against South Korea or the West Coast of the United States that would be detonated in midair several miles above the target. This would create an Electronic Magnetic Pulse (EMP) that would knock out the power grid for hundreds of square miles and cause absolute chaos. People would be without power for months or even years with banks, hospitals, stores, and government services being down. The casualties could be enormous.

Conservatives in Danger of Losing Control of British Parliament http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4627-Conservatives-in-Danger-of-Losing-Control-of-British-Parliament Despite last minute polls that showed a solid seven point lead for Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party the exit polls following yesterday’s election indicate otherwise. It now appears that Conservatives may lose their majority in parliament and under the British electoral system May will have to form a coalition with one or more other parties and thereby keep her position as prime minister. Of course, the liberal Labour party will be working to form its own coalition to take control of the government. Whatever the final outcome the big losers are the pollsters who cannot appear to get the polls to make accurate predictions on either side of the pond.

Senate Intelligence Hearings Prove that Mainstream Media Lied http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4626-Senate-Intelligence-Hearings-Prove-that-Mainstream-Media-Lied For several months the American people have been inundated with news reports exposing the possible criminal acts of President Trump. These included claims of obstruction of Justice, and pressuring the members of the intelligence community to drop investigations into Russian interference in the U. S. election. The leaders of the intelligence community all repudiated these claims and even Comey threw cold water on the claims of the news media.

This appears to clearly show that news media reports based almost entirely on unnamed sources and unseen or unverified documents were either highly exaggerated or completely false.

No Smoking Gun in Comey Testimony http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4625-No-Smoking-Gun-in-Comey-Testimony Despite all of the speculation and grandstanding by the politicians and media there was not really any smoking gun revealed in the Comey testimony. There was no obstruction of Justice by Donald Trump because Comey did not state that the President ever ordered him to do anything when it came to the investigations into the Russians or General Michael Flynn.

In other words there is no crime and no grounds for the Democrats to try and impeach Trump. The only possible criminal offense to emerge from the testimony was Comey’s admission that he intentionally leaked memos about his meetings with Trump including some classified information.

During the speech he expressed his disappointment in President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord. He made it clear that he expects America to rejoin the agreement under a different president. He cautioned against embracing isolationism saying that there was a better way “in creating an international order that was based not just on self-interest but also on principles.” The former president insisted that world leaders must do more to combat income inequality. Mr. Obama demands a hefty $400,000 price for his speeches. The former president raked in $7,700 a minute.

Obama Era Slush Fund Ended http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4621-Obama-Era-Slush-Fund-Ended The Obama Administration’s Justice Department funneled billions of dollars to left wing causes. The Obama DOJ would enter into an agreement whereby a company under investigation could pay a substantial fine to the government or the company could pay a smaller amount of money to a non-profit left wing group. To resolve a criminal investigation, Gibson Guitar Corp. was required to contribute settlement money to the national Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/06/07/doj-end...

"Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations," said Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, ended the corrupt practice on Wednesday with a directive. “With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.”

Comey Testimony http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4620-Comey-Testimony James Comey’s opening statement was released on Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee. It confirms President Trump’s statement that he was told by Mr. Comey that he was not under investigation. President Trump was not trying to shut down the campaign collusion investigation. Instead the president was trying to get Mr. Comey to come out publicly and say that President Trump was not under investigation. The president was genuinely frustrated and puzzled as to why the former FBI director did not come out and definitively clear his name. It appears President Trump fired Mr. Comey in a fit of pique. “That isn’t illegal, and it isn’t obstruction, and it isn’t even pressure. But that’s not how the press will play it.”

Remember The USS Liberty Today http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4619-Remember-The-USS-Liberty-Today The USS Liberty was attacked by Israeli warplanes and torpedoed by Israeli ships on June 8th 1967 during the Six-Day War. The American ship was a signals intelligence ship in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea off the Sinai coast. The USS Liberty was clearly marked as a United States ship. During the two hour air and naval attack, the crew hoisted a large American flag so that the attacking aircraft would call off the bombing. Rescue aircraft were launched by the 6th Fleet but recalled on the direct orders of President Johnson. Survivors have never been satisfied with the official inquiries. In 2003 an Independent Commission of Inquiry Into the Attack on the USS Liberty stated, “Israel committed acts of murder against American servicemen and an act of war against the United States.” 34 crew members were killed. 171 crew members were wounded.

Las Vegas Officials Very Concerned Over Possible Terrorist Attacks http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4617-Las-Vegas-Officials-Very-Concerned-Over-Possible-Terrorist-Attacks There is little doubt that the city of Las Vegas, Nevada is a hugely popular tourist destination, and on any given weekend the famous Vegas strip is crowded with thousands of people. The strip is the home to high end shopping, luxurious casinos and hotels, and other tourist attractions. The traffic is always very heavy and on many parts of the strip there are no barriers between the street and the crowded sidewalks.

With the recent attacks in Europe that saw terrorists driving trucks and cars into crowded tourist frequented streets and sidewalks there is increasing concern among Las Vegas officials that the city is highly vulnerable to such attacks. As a result the city is going to install a large number of bollards as barricades in order to prevent such attacks. Metro police want this done as soon as possible.

The attacks were carried out by gunmen and suicide bombers and at least twelve people were killed. In another irony ISIS is claiming credit for the attacks.

The claim is not that surprising when you consider that ISIS is fighting to maintain its control over parts of Syria while Iran is actively supporting Assad. Essentially ISIS seems to be throwing down the gauntlet and telling the Iranians that our terrorists can beat up your terrorists.

If this lead holds May’s conservatives will maintain their lead in parliament and could add to the number seats they hold.

However, the Labour party has closed the gap in recent weeks, and since the polls taken before the presidential election in the U.S. proved to be disastrously wrong one in Great Britain can be sure of anything until the votes are actually counted.

The tests were conducted just a week after the United Nations Security Council adopted a new round of sanctions against the Lim Jong Un regime. The missile tests are a sign of defiance of the U.N. and a warning to the U.S. Navy that has deployed three aircraft carrier battle groups into the area.

Democrats Turn On Trump’s Infrastructure Plan http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4611-Democrats-Turn-On-Trump’s-Infrastructure-Plan Democrats will not be supporting President Trump’s infrastructure plan. Initially, it appeared that Democrats and the president would find common ground. Fixing the nation’s roads and bridges and funding blue collar jobs is something that Democrats have supported in the past. Publicly, the sticking point is privatization. “A private-sector-driven infrastructure plan means tolls, tolls, tolls — paid by average, working Americans,” said Democrat Senator Schumer. “It also means that infrastructure that can’t be built with tolls, like repairing our crumbling schools, for instance, will likely get left behind.” However there is a political calculation. Democrats don’t want to be seen as working with the president. They believe that by distancing themselves from the president, they will gain seats in the 2018 congressional elections.

The war of words escalated after the Mayor told Londoners that the increased police presence in the city was no reason for alarm. President Trump mocked the Mayor’s comment pointing out the death toll and the injuries. He then restated his call for a temporary travel ban. Prime Minister Theresa May said that the state visit would not be cancelled.

Fees and salaries are set at market rates. When government uses the word privatization it means that government keeps a controlling interest and sets terms and conditions. Fees benefit those in charge. President Trump’s air traffic control system will not be run according to free market principles. It will be crony privatization set up to benefit crony insiders.

The man yelled that this was for Syria before he was shot and wounded by police.

However, just a few days earlier a woman in Scarborough, Canada entered a mall and attacked employees in a hardware store with a golf club and then pulled a knife before she was subdued by the store staff.

Despite the increasing attacks in European countries like France, England, and Germany critics of the Trump policy continue to deny reality.

Now some new information is proving them wrong. Some countries in Europe have been seemingly immune from terrorist attacks. These include countries like Poland and Hungary where immigration is strictly controlled and the influx of refugees from unstable Middle Eastern countries is prohibited. These countries have also not seen the rise in crime that nations with open orders are seeing.

House Passes Comprehensive Veterans Protection Bills http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4602-House-Passes-Comprehensive-Veterans-Protection-Bills The United States House of Representatives has passed a comprehensive package of legislation to care for veterans and protect their rights and provide them with better care and services. First is H.R. 1259 that requires that VA employees be accountable for their actions and making easier for them to be terminated for failing to fulfill their duties to veterans.

Second is H.R. 1367 is to assist the VA in hiring and retaining the best qualified employees and H.R. 1118 is to protect the Second Amendment rights of veterans who were being illegally disarmed by the Obama administration. It is this last bill that liberals in the Senate are expected to try and block.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Call Legislature into Special Session http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4601-Texas-Governor-Greg-Abbott-Call-Legislature-into-Special-Session In an apparent reaction to the failure of the Republican controlled state legislature to take action on several key pieces of legislation Governor Greg Abbott has called the body back for a special session. This has occurred just days after the adjournment of the regular session. One of the issues he wants the lawmakers to take up is the so-called bathroom bill that requires that children in public schools only use the bathrooms and locker rooms based on their gender as listed on their birth certificate.

In other words, they cannot use the bathroom they want just based on their choice of the day. There have been a number of reported instances where school children have felt their privacy had been violated by schools allowing girls and boys to enter any bathroom or locker room they chose.

Middle Eastern Nations Isolate Qatar http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4600-Middle-Eastern-Nations-Isolate-Qatar In a move that apparently caught much of the world by surprise, several predominately Muslim nations in the Middle East have cut off diplomatic relations with the wealthy country of Qatar. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain are among the countries making this move so far. They are claiming that Qatar openly supports terrorism through its support for the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and some even claim ISIS. However the country is also the home of the largest United States military base in the region, the Al-Udeid Air Force base that is the primary base in the war on terror. This puts the Trump administration in an undeniably awkward position.

Nikki Haley Blasts U.N. Human Rights Council http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4599-Nikki-Haley-Blasts-U.N.-Human-Rights-Council United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been an outspoken critic of the United Nations Human Rights Council. She calls it a “haven for dictators” and rightly points out that it is stacked with members who are openly critical of the U.S. and its major ally Israel. These same members are not critical of countries like Cuba, Venezuela, and even Iran where human right violations are rampant. As a result the U.S. Senate is actively considering pulling us out of the council entirely and cutting off the millions of dollars in funding that the U.S. supplies to the organization.

Deep State Plays With Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4598-Deep-State-Plays-With-Trump A National Security Agency contractor was arrested for allegedly leaking top secret information to The Intercept. The leaked document purports to show that “Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phasing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election.” The Intercept goes on to say that the top secret document however “does not show the underlying ‘raw’ intelligence on which the analysis is based.” So there is no underlying data, but the document keeps the hacking conspiracy alive just as James Comey is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Supreme Court To Hear Case on Cellphone Location Data http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4597-Supreme-Court-To-Hear-Case-on-Cellphone-Location-Data Is a search warrant needed to look at customer location data held by cellphone companies? The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case involving this question. In a legal case involving a robbery, the police did not obtain a warrant to obtain location data. Instead, police relied on a court order obtained under the Stored Communications Act. The cellphone provider was compelled to provide the location data. Police have a lower legal standard under the Act to obtain information as opposed to a warrant which requires probable cause. Attorneys for the defendant argue that the Stored Communications Act can be turned into a warrantless tracking program. The appeals court held that the defendant did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy because he voluntarily gave his information to the phone company. The case will be heard in the Court’s next term.

The Slow Pace of Filling Appointments http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4596--The-Slow-Pace-of-Filling-Appointments The Trump Administration has not filled hundreds of vacant positions throughout the government. Various regulatory agencies cannot act because there are not enough people to have a quorum. Many Obama Administration holdovers continue to make policy. The Treasury department has 17 positions unfilled. 53 positions at the Pentagon still need to be filled and 112 positions at the State Department are vacant. President Trump blamed the Democrats for the slowing the process. And while Democrats have delayed votes, the Trump Administration has simply not done the normal things that the Executive Branch is supposed to do, which is to appoint people.

The company paid $865 million for $2.8 billion in Venezuelan government bonds. Julio Borges, an opposition leader, called out Goldman Sachs accusing the company of “aiding and abetting the country’s dictatorial regime.” Hyperinflation is in excess of 750%. Government imposed price controls on food and basic staples has created severe shortages. Venezuelans have lost an average of 19 pounds over the last year because of lack of food. Venezuela’s opposition leader wrote, “Goldman Sachs financial lifeline to the regime will serve to strengthen the brutal repression unleashed against the hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans peacefully protesting for political change in the country.”

Trump Won’t Hinder Comey Testimony http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4594-Trump-Won’t-Hinder-Comey-Testimony President Trump will not be invoking executive privilege to keep former FBI Director James Comey from testifying. The Deputy Press Secretary said, "The President's power to assert executive privilege is very well-established. However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate intelligence committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey's scheduled testimony." Had President Trump intervened in the testimony, it would have inflamed Democrats in the House and Senate. Democrats would have accused the president of trying to hide something and hinder the investigation.

Schools Become Culturally Proficient http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4593-Schools-Become-Culturally-Proficient In June of 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that a Christian prayer in government schools violated the First Amendment because it acted as an establishment of religion. 55 years later, government schools are actively accommodating Muslims. Accommodations include time off, on campus prayer rooms, and dietary guidelines. Agreeing to the demands of the Muslim Student Association, a high school in New York agreed not to serve food at the school prom until after 9 p.m. when fasting for Ramadan ends. The Saratoga County School District in New York will open prayer rooms on campus during Ramadan. The principal of the school agreed to do this in an effort to increase the school’s “cultural proficiency".

It turns out that Bernie Sanders is one of the rich, one percent. He made $1,052,000 in 2016. Additionally, his wife Jane Sanders holds retirement funds that range in value somewhere between $192,000 and $815,0900. Bernie Sanders’ political career started in 1981.

Female Genital Mutilation is not a Constitutional Right http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4591-Female-Genital-Mutilation-is-not-a-Constitutional-Right The practice of female genital mutilation is a common practice in many predominately Muslim countries, but has been outlawed in the United States for years. Recently three Muslim physicians living in Michigan have been arrested for performing such surgeries on girls as young as six years old. They are the first to be charged under this particular law and face prison sentences.

However, not only has the Imam of one of the largest mosques in the country in Falls Church, Virginia endorsed and defended the practice, but defense lawyers for the Michigan doctors are going to claim that the practice is protected by the Constitution. They are apparently going to argue that arresting the doctors for performing the surgeries violates their constitutional right to freedom of religion under the First Amendment.

The response from some members of the media was to immediately stop reporting on the latest atrocity committed in the name of Islamic extremism and attack Trump.

A CNN host, Reza Aslan called the President “a piece of s**t and an MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts launched a theory that Trump was deliberately trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack in the United States so that he could prove he was right. He made this claim not once, but twice.

Bret Weinstein is a professor at Evergreen State University who is white and refused to comply with black student demands that there be a “day of absence” with all white students and faculty being banned from the campus. Weinstein did not do as he was told an as a result his class was disrupted and he was repeatedly threatened to the point that he couldn’t enter the campus since the campus police said they could not guarantee his safety.

Now, many left wing faculty members have signed a petition calling for the professor to be punished for allegedly inciting “white supremacists” against the school and its students and faculty. Apparently, they are referring to anyone who criticized the efforts of left wing students to discriminate against white students.

Many of these demonstrators followed the pattern set in previous similar protests and riots; they hid their faces with masks and/or hoodies.

No figures have been received for the police deployment for the first monument and the city has failed to comply with requests to turn over information on other costs.

"My immediate reaction is this is a crazy decision. It is against the facts. It is against science. It is against reality itself. We know we have to de-carbonize our future,” said the governor. He continued, “If we don’t, it is a horror. People will die! Habitats will be destroyed. Seas will rise. Insects will spread in areas they never have before. This is not a game. It is not politics to talk to your base. It is humanity and whether it makes it through the 21st century." Governor Brown committed California to join an alliance of states including New York and Washington to meet U.S. climate goals. Decarbonizing these state’s economies will result in costly regulations, higher taxes, and an exodus of residents. States not joining the alliance will likely see their economies benefit.

Selling Vegetables and Fruit Without Government Permission http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4584-Selling-Vegetables-and-Fruit-Without-Government-Permission In Alameda County, California, a immigrant fruit vendor was arrested for selling fruit without government permission, meaning a license.
http://kron4.com/2017/05/17/video-photograph-of-fr...

When the vendor was asked for his identification, he tried to run away, attempting to push past a deputy and touching the officer in the process. The Sheriff’s Office issued a statement saying, “We don’t go out proactively seeking fruit vendors to arrest.” All we wanted from the get-go was to tell this man, ‘Hey, please pack up your fruit and vegetables and could you please move on.'” This brings up the question though, “Why is a license needed to sell fruit?” Historically the courts have been clear that the trades are open to all people to engage in without government permission. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled, “If the State converts a right (liberty) into a privilege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right (liberty) with impunity.” (Shuttlesworth v. City of Birmingham, Alabama, 373 U.S. 262) When Americans have to seek government permission to enter a trade to support themselves and their families, they are not free.

Income taxes, sales taxes, corporate taxes are all expected to decline sharply. Connecticut’s Office of Fiscal Analysis is forecasting a $1.46 billion reduction in tax receipts over the next two years. Adding to Connecticut’s problems are its public pension obligations and three credit downgrades. The state is facing a $5.1 billion deficit. Real GDP has fallen 0.1% since 2010. The state treasurer floated a plan to issue credit bonds securitized by income tax receipts. During the last five years, 27,400 residents have fled Connecticut’s high taxes for Florida where there are no income taxes.

During the Saturday night attack by terrorists in London citizens fought back throwing chairs, tables, bottles, and anything else they could find against the attackers who were armed with long knives and shouting “this is for Allah” as they tried to slaughter innocent unarmed civilians.

In addition, since many British police officers are still not allowed to carry firearms this did not deter one young English officer from using his baton to fight one of the knife armed assailants. All of this may serve as a warning to ISIS, which has claimed credit for the attacks, that its fighters and other terrorists may not find the slaughter of innocents as easy in the future.

Now apparently she has gone too far by adding the Democratic National Committee to her list of guilty parties.

However, supporters of the budget proposals point out that they are remarkably similar to reforms adopted by Congress during the 1990s, many of them under President Bill Clinton.

Essentially the proposed reforms require people receiving food stamps or other welfare benefits to find employment as soon as possible or at least search for employment and go through training for available jobs. These types of programs have helped reduce dependency on welfare and helped people get out of poverty in the past.

Their crime is that they have refused to host same sex weddings at their orchard and expressed their religious views about same sex marriage on their Facebook page. According to city officials at East Lansing this attempt to exercise their constitutional rights of free speech and freedom of religion require that they be punished by the city government. These two veterans did not fight for these freedoms just to roll over and let them be taken away in the name of political correctness. They have filed a discrimination law suit against the city.

She initially apologized in order to save what is left of her failing career, but now has gone on the offensive.

However, it turns out that Griffin had promised several times after Trump’s election to go after both him and his 11 year old son Barron. In an interview on social media in December 2016 Griffin promised to give a “beat down” to both Donald Trump. She felt that being willing to go after an eleven year old boy gave her an “edge” over other comedians. She made the same statements in front of a live audience a few months later.

In 2014, Vincent DeMarco, President of Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence, wrote, “In 2013, the Maryland General Assembly passed and Governor O’Malley signed into law a landmark new gun violence prevention measure, the Firearm Safety Act, which is already saving lives in our state. We believe it should be a model for the nation.”

That’ll Show Them http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4572-That’ll-Show-Them After President Trump announced America’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord on Thursday, leftist politicians protested. They bathed government monuments in green lights. Of course nobody thought to ask these politicians how much money it cost to light up their government buildings. Or the amount of CO2 that power plants generated to light up their buildings. Leftist politicians and business leaders stood to make billions of dollars in crony government contracts if America had stayed in the Paris Accord.

Air Force Veteran Gets 35 Years in Prison http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4571-Air-Force-Veteran-Gets-35-Years-in-Prison Tairod Pugh was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison after being convicted of attempting to give material support to ISIS and obstruction of justice. A search of his computer showed an internet search history of such things as “border controlled by Islamic state.” Also found was a letter to his wife saying, “I am a Mujahid. I am a sword against the oppressor and a shield for the oppressed. I will use the talents and skills given to me by Allah to establish and defend the Islamic State." Pugh attempted to enter Syria in 2015. During sentencing, the U.S. District judge said, "This isn't about whether you're a Muslim or a Christian or Jewish. This is about whether you're going to stand up for your country." Adding, "The work of the Islamic State is to destroy our way of life." The 35 year sentence was the maximum number of years allowable by law.

Bloomberg Pays Up http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4570-Bloomberg-Pays-Up Billionaire businessman, Michael Bloomberg, is donating $15 million to the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change. The money will make up for what the United States government won’t be paying. "The pledge aims to fill a significant funding gap that comes as a result of President Donald Trump's announced withdrawal from the Paris agreement and proposed steep budget cuts for international programs, including on climate," according to Bloomberg Philanthropies. Instead of spending other people’s money, having rich people pay for their utopian ideas is how it should be. Michael Bloomberg is worth an estimated $50 billion.

Hungary Fights Soros http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4569-Hungary-Fights-Soros The prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, is at war with billionaire George Soros. Soros is funding non-governmental organizations in Hungary to push for the resettlement of Islamic migrants. He’s called Orban’s government a “mafia state”. Orban is opposed to the resettlement of migrants in Hungary because of the crime that they engage in as well as the financial cost. Orban said, "The Hungarian government is defending the borders, built fences, and under these circumstances the Soros plan can't be carried out.” The Hungarian parliament passed legislation forcing the Soros funded Central European University to leave Budapest. Legislation is expected to pass that would force NGOs that receive $25,000 a year from abroad to report themselves as foreign funded.

Separate Commencements http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4568-Separate-Commencements Civil rights activists in America have fought for decades to tear down racial barriers. But increasingly, within universities, minority students are demanding their own separate graduations. Organizers say the focus is on celebrating a shared experience as a group. As identity politics has worked itself out in universities, minority students have become hyper-focused on what divides them. Separate commencements appear to be amplifying racial differences. “College is the place where we should be teaching and preaching the view that you’re an individual, and choose your associates to be based on other factors rather than skin color,” said Ward Connelly, president of the American Civil Rights Institute.

You Have a Right to Repair Your Own Stuff http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4566-You-Have-a-Right-to-Repair-Your-Own-Stuff The Supreme Court decided Impression v Lexmark on Tuesday. Lexmark argued that the company retained certain property rights over their products even after they were sold to consumers. The company went further by asserting that it had the right to prevent third parties from repairing its products. Lexmark created single use printer cartridges that were disabled by a computer chip. A West Virginia company found a way to bypass the restriction. Lexmark sued for violation of patent infringement. The Supreme Court ruled that Lexmark’s patent rights were exhausted when they decided to sell the cartridges. The product becomes the property of the purchaser. You can now repair or alter the products that you buy.

$1 Million Lawsuit Filed Against James O’Keefe http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4565-$1-Million-Lawsuit-Filed-Against-James-O’Keefe Project Veritas founder, James O’Keefe, is being sued for $1 million in federal court. At issue are the undercover videos he created that targeted Democratic organizations in the lead up to the 2016 election. The videos purport to show Democrats planning ways to provoke violence at campaign events for Donald Trump. The suit alleges that that O’Keefe violated laws that prohibit recording private conversations. And that O’Keefe arranged for a colleague to be hired as an intern under a false name, using a fake Social Security number, and under false pretenses. O’Keefe characterized the suit as an attack on the First Amendment. “The very nature of investigative journalism is being put on the line when they try to shut me down,” he said. “They’re not going to shut me down. It’s not going to happen,” said O’Keefe.

Farmer Under Attack for Christian Beliefs http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4564-Farmer-Under-Attack-for-Christian-Beliefs Steve Tennes, a Christian farmer in East Lansing, Michigan is unable to participate in the local farmer’s market because of his views on gay marriage. In 2014 he declined to allow two women to be married on his farm, Country Mill Farms. He posted on Facebook, “It remains our deeply held religious belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman and Country Mill has the First Amendment right to express and act upon its beliefs.” Because Tennes lives outside of East Lansing, the town could not censure him. Instead, the town changed its Farmer’s Market permit policy which forced him to submit a new application. The town denied him a permit finding that his farm violated discrimination ordinances outlined in the farmer market vendor guidelines. The farmer filed suit against East Lansing. His attorney said, "They are running their farm according to their beliefs, which is the right of every American. What is wrong here is the city of East Lansing targeting them and trying to discriminate against them for acting upon their beliefs and for believing."

He quit after President Trump announced America’s exit from the Paris Climate Accord. He tweeted out, “Am departing presidential councils. Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world.” Elon Musk has a lot to loose in the aftermath of Trump’s announcement. Musk had positioned his companies to benefit from the trillions of government dollars that would have flowed into Silicon Valley. His companies have received an estimated $4.9 billion in government money, funding solar, space, and battery technologies. In reality, leaving the Paris agreement is good for America, but it is not good for Elon.

Politicians Ruin Illinois http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4561-Politicians-Ruin-Illinois Bond rating companies downgraded the bond rating of Illinois on Thursday. The new rating is one level above junk bond status. Illinois is mired in pension debt obligations and unable to pay its bills. The overdue bills amount to 40 percent of the state’s operating budget. The state has not passed a full year budget for the last two years. By the end of June, the state’s interest obligations will climb to an estimated $800 million. Complicating the mess is that Republican Governor and Democrat legislature can’t agree how to fix the state’s finances. The legislature missed a deadline to pass a budget by a simple majority. Now it takes a three fifths majority vote to pass legislation. The downgraded bonds have increased the state’s cost of borrowing as investors demand a higher interest rate to compensate them for the added risk.

President Trump Plays the Hokey Pokey With Climate Accord http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4560-President-Trump-Plays-the-Hokey-Pokey-With-Climate-Accord President Obama put America’s right foot into the Paris Climate Agreement when he signed it. Today President Trump took America’s right foot out of the agreement saying, “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.” And then the president promptly pledged to put America’s right foot back in saying that the administration would “begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris Accord or a really entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers.” Offering to negotiate re-entry on better terms may be a concession to liberal Democrats in his administration. But leaders in France, Italy, and Germany issued a statement saying that the accord cannot be re-negotiated.The Paris Accord would have grown the size, scope, and power of the federal government as bureaucrats created and implemented climate change rules. America’s industrial sector would have lost 1.1 million jobs according to a study by the US Chamber of Commerce. Silicon Valley would have received billions of dollars in government subsidies to fund the research and development into renewable energy.

Washington State College Closes as Racial Tensions Rise http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4559-Washington-State-College-Closes-as-Racial-Tensions-Rise Evergreen State College in Washington State is known for its notoriously liberal leanings and has now become the epitome of racial tensions as black students demanded that the administration approve a so-called “day of absence” when white students and faculty would be banned from the campus. When one prominent professor, Bret Weinstein, opposed this idea and refused to comply, labelling it a form of racism, he was immediately vilified by the campus left.

Weinstein, who is white, has been threatened to the point that he states that he has been told by the chief of police that he should not go onto the campus because it was unsafe. In the latest development the campus has been entirely shut down and evacuated because of an unspecified threat to “campus safety”.

Several reporters who were photographing the demonstrations were beaten and briefly arrested. At least one reporter had his vehicle and possessions stolen by the members of the Guard.

The unrest and civil disobedience has escalated as the socialist government has consolidated its power and the economy has continued its downward spiral. Over sixty people have been reported to have been killed by the police and National Guard and hundreds more have been injured or arrested, many being held without charges or trials.

Joe Biden Possibly Eyeing 2020 Election http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4557-Joe-Biden-Possibly-Eyeing-2020-Election Since Hillary Clinton’s devastating loss to Donald Trump in the presidential election Democrats have appeared to be in a state of shock. After all they expected to not only win the White House, but take back control of the Senate and even perhaps the House of Representatives. None of that has happened and everyone from the Russians to the FBI has been blamed.

However, former Vice President Joe Biden appears to be one of the few people who understands one of the primary reasons for the failure of the Democrat party in 2016. He believes the party virtually ignored the American middle class. As a result he has formed a political action committee to raise money for Democrat candidates and many political pundits believe this signals a possible run for the presidency in 2020 by Biden.

Major University Mascot Declared Racist http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4556-Major-University-Mascot-Declared-Racist In another act of what some people call campus craziness a petition has been started by left wing students at Louisiana State University demanding that the school’s mascot be eliminated because it is racist. The LSU mascot is a Bengal tiger. The student group is using a rather convoluted effort to arrive at its decision to call a tiger racist.

First, it appears that during the Civil war there was an artillery unit from New Orleans nicknamed the Louisiana Tigers and since Louisiana was a confederate state it supported slavery and therefore anything connected to it is racist including the state university’s mascot. Also the claim is made that since the live tiger is kept in a special area on campus it is therefore meant to only be viewed by the “white privileged.”

The President also pointed that the agreement would cost the United States billions of dollars, and millions of jobs. Democrats immediately went on the attack essentially predicting the end of the world based on what is widely viewed as faulty science on climate change.

Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) circulated a fake petition asking students to “redistribute the top 10 percent of GPAs at Davidson to the bottom 10 percent” so as to achieve “education equality." YAF secretly filmed the responses and posted a video on Facebook. Many students refused to sign the petition because they felt they’d earned their grades and deserved them. The purpose of the video was to demonstrate unfairness of wealth distribution. When socialism personally affects people, they are opposed to it. When students found out the petition was a hoax, they held a teach-in at the campus union and attacked the video. Some students called it “oppressive” and “illegally filmed.” Others came out in favor of income and GPA redistribution.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump told supporters that the Paris agreement was bad for American workers and the American economy. He promised to revive the coal industry and put miners back to work. During his meetings with European leaders, Trump did not reaffirm the American government’s commitment to the agreement. Mr. Trump staffed his administration with people who support the climate change agreement. And he’s being pressured by advisors to reaffirm America’s commitment to the agreement. If Trump does not issue a definitive withdrawal from the agreement, the door will be open to rejoining the agreement when another person wins the White House.

The proposed regulation is being celebrated as a win for conscience rights for Americans. “No one, including religious orders like the Little Sisters of the Poor or groups like ­Susan B.

Thousands of Non-citizens Registered to Vote in Virginia http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4546-Thousands-of-Non-citizens-Registered-to-Vote-in-Virginia- President Donald Trump has established a Voter Integrity Commission to investigate possible voter fraud across the country. One of the first states to be looked at is Virginia where a private voting watchdog group, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), has found that at least 5,500 noncitizens have been registered to vote in Virginia this decade and many of them cast ballots in multiple elections.

The report also indicates that this fact has been hidden by state government officials including Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe, who is best known for illegally pardoning 60,000 convicted felons so they could vote in the 2016 election. Many other states are also being investigated including North Carolina where numerous voters were found who were registered in multiple states and multiple districts in the state.

The report says that of 50,000 evening news stories reported on NBC, ABC, and CBS in the last four years only 25 have dealt with the crisis in that country. The networks have also been reluctant to attach the label of socialist to the Venezuelan government, doing so only seven times in the last four years. Yet, thousands of the people in that country are starving, 25 percent are unemployed and the inflation rate is approaching 700 percent and the government is restricting all civil liberties. But apparently the MSM does not want the American people to know this.

The United States Constitution defines treason as providing “aid and comfort” to the enemies of our nation, and many Americans view the current leaks as falling into that category.

According to a recent Rasmussen poll 53 per cent of Americans feel that the leaks of classified information are treasonous while only 30 percent disagree and 18 per cent are undecided. Of course more Republicans feel that way than Democrats.

This is clearly a treaty, but as Obama did with other such treaties, like the Iran deal, he chose to ignore the Constitutional mandate of two thirds of the United States Senate ratifying a treaty before it can be enforced. This would appear to make it easier for Trump to back out of the accord, but he is under great pressure from European leaders to stay in the agreement. The White House staff is supposedly divided on how to proceed, but Trump is expected to make the decision soon.

Kathy Griffin Apology Doesn’t Work http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4542-Kathy-Griffin-Apology-Doesn’t-Work Kathy Griffin has apologized for her vicious and pathetic attempt at anti Donald Trump humor that led to a picture of her being taken holding the bloody image of what appeared to be the President’s head. The picture was posted on the TMZ website as well as other places and drew immediate condemnation, even from many liberals. The outcry was so great that the picture was removed, but Griffin’s apology didn’t have the desired effect. Her contract with CNN to do the New Year’s Eve show with Anderson Cooper has been terminated. She has also lost a performance gig at a casino in New Mexico in July and at least one sponsorship deal.

The Apology Tour of Senator McCain http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4540-The-Apology-Tour-of-Senator-McCain Senator John McCain is in Australia, taking verbal shots at President Trump. When asked about Angela Merkel’s comments about Germany going it alone in the world, Senator McCain said, “I realize that some of President Trump’s actions and statements have unsettled America’s friends. They have unsettled many Americans as well.” Earlier in the week, Senator McCain told an Australian television channel that Trump makes him “nervous from time to time.” McCain expressed frustration that the president does not take the advice of his national security team all the time. “Does it bother me? Yes, it bothers me,” he said. McCain sought to reassure the Australians that one day, post Trump, America would join the crony free trade Trans-Pacific Partnership. “[H]opefully, someday in the future, under different circumstances, America will decide to join you.”

President Trump tweeted out his unhappiness with America’s trade deficit with Germany. http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4539-President-Trump-tweeted-out-his-unhappiness-with-America’s-trade-deficit-with-Germany. “We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change,” tweeted the president. President Trump is focused on the trade deficit because the issue resonates with his voters. But his frustration is not based in a good understanding of economics. Some countries produce goods more cheaply and efficiently than Americans can. Variables such as labor, rent, and other expenses drive up the cost of doing business in the United States versus China. The president would be better served to making America a more competitive place. He could press Congress to eliminate corporate taxes and regulations that drive up the cost of doing business in America.

The Unhinged Left http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4538-The-Unhinged-Left Critics of President Trump say that his speeches are calculated to incite violence. But on Tuesday, photos of comedienne Kathy Griffin were released showing her holding a mock bloody, severed head of President Trump. The Left is giving her a pass because she claims to be an artist engaging in free speech. Yet if a conservative had done the same thing with a mock-up of Obama’s head, the person would have been hounded relentlessly. The picture ignited outrage on social media. Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president.” Griffin released a video later apologizing for the photo saying, “The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. it wasn’t funny… I went too far.”

This tells us a couple of things. First, in light of the fact that Senators McCain and Graham are pushing a military confrontation with Russia, communicating with Russia regarding Syria and sanctions would have gone a long way to ease tensions and create understanding. Second, the news confirms that there were no back channel communications with the Russians during the election. If such a thing had existed prior to the election, Kushner would not have a need to bring it up with the Russian Ambassador in December.

Missile Intercept http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4535-Missile-Intercept The Pentagon successfully intercepted and destroyed an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday. The military launched an ICBM from the Marshall Islands in the Pacific. The intercepting missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. This was the fifth attempt to intercept a missile but only the second success. "Based on its testing record, we cannot rely upon this missile defense program to protect the United States from a North Korean long-range missile,” said Philip Coyle, a senior fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. The government has spent $40 billion since 2002 to build and test the system. A lot of work still remains to increase the reliability and effectiveness of the intercept system.

The Solar Probe Plus mission will launch in the summer of 2018. NASA plans to use the probe to explore the sun’s outer atmosphere and seek to answer questions that have plagued scientists for decades. The space probe will orbit the sun’s surface at a distance of 4 million miles. Because of it’s close proximity to the sun, the probe will experience more radiation than any other spaceship. There is no word how many taxpayer dollars will be used to build, launch, and sustain the mission.

This area has been declared a deconfliction zone by both United States and Russian forces in the area. Militia patrols have appeared to violate the one directly threatening the coalition forces in the area. American commanders in the area have dropped leaflets on the intruding force warning them that they are subject to attack if they continue their effort to breach the area.

Trump Appears Ready to Reverse Cuba Deal http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4531-Trump-Appears-Ready-to-Reverse-Cuba-Deal Although it has not been officially confirmed by the White House more indications are emerging that President Donald Trump is going to reverse the deal made with Cuba by the Obama administration. During his campaign for the Presidency Trump was highly critical of the deal calling it one sided since it provided great economic benefits to the communist government of Cuba while doing little to benefit the oppressed Cuban people. It also did not include a deal to release Americans illegally held by the Cubans or force the government to agree to return numerous criminals, including terrorists, wanted for crimes committed in the U.S. but shielded by Cuba.

ICBMs are the only long range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads from North Korea to targets on the west coast of the continental United States. Recent intelligence reports have found that North Korea is making progress in this part of their missile and nuclear programs.

The mayor has decided that anyone in New York making over $500,000 per year must be by nature corrupt, and he is therefore proposing a massive tax increase on these families. The result has been the beginning of a mass exodus from the city with New Yorkers reportedly purchasing over one billion dollars’ worth of residential real estate in Florida since last November. The bottom line is that the city is losing many of it residents who pay much of the taxes used to fund city services.

Remember When Obama Influenced Elections http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4527-Remember-When-Obama-Influenced-Elections Democrats in Congress and the media have been pushing a Russian campaign influence story since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. But Democrats have been quiet about Obama’s overt attempt to influence elections and votes in Israel, France and Britain. In 2015, the Obama State Department gave nearly $350,000 to an Israeli political group to create a campaign operation to undermine the re-election bid of Benjamin Netanyahu. During the Brexit vote, President Obama went to Britain and spoke favorably of Britain remaining in the European Union. Most recently Obama made it clear that he backed the election of Emmanuel Macron in the French elections. According to Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University, the U.S. government has tried to influence the course of elections at least 81 times between 1946 and 2000. It appears that meddling in foreign elections is something that governments do regularly.

The riskiest consumers, those with a score of below 600 has fallen to 20% of consumers with FICO scores. The American economy is in the boom phase of the business cycle. Better credit scores may lead to more consumer borrowing. Eventually, as borrowers over extend themselves, the Federal Reserve’s manipulated boom will end badly.

Trump May Change Obama Cuba Policies http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4525-Trump-May-Change-Obama-Cuba-Policies President Obama roiled anti-Castro Republicans when he opened diplomatic relations with Cuba. The Trump Administration has been working with members of Congress to review the Cuba policies and plan changes. Senator Rubio said, “We’ve been walking through all these issues with the president and his team, figuring out the right steps to take and when.”

Speculation is that there will be increased enforcement of travel as well as increased restrictions on companies doing business with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of the Republic of Cuba. The Trump Administration may get push back though. Senator Flake introduced legislation to remove all remaining travel restrictions to Cuba. He said, “Recognizing the inherent right of Americans to travel to Cuba isn’t a concession to dictators, it is an expression of freedom. It is Americans who are penalized by our travel ban, not the Cuban government.”

Under the legislation, every sale would be conducted by an Federal Firearms Licensee. Both the seller and the buyer would have to undergo a background check. The legislator called the legislation “common sense.” “We’re not trying to take away Second Amendment rights. Anyone who has a gun should have a background check,” said Santora. Background checks were all done prior to mass killings at the Orlando Pulse night club, Aurora movie theater, Fort Hood, and Virginia Tech.

Will Wonders Never Cease http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4523-Will-Wonders-Never-Cease Pope Francis shocked the world on Saturday with his endorsement of entrepreneurship, business, and work. Pope Francis was speaking to workers in Genoa, a city with a long history of trade and commerce. He said, “There can’t be a good economy without good businessmen, without their capacity to create and to produce.” “The world of work is a human priority and it’s also a priority for the pope. There’s always been a friendship between the church and work, starting with Jesus, who was a worker.” The pope recognized that a social safety net may solve an immediate crisis, but in the long-term, poverty is best solved by work. “A monthly check from the state that allows you to keep the family afloat doesn’t solve the problem. It has to be resolved with work for everyone.”

Insider Defects From the EU http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4522-Insider-Defects-From-the-EU The European Union is on its way out according to one major insider economist. Fredrik Erixon is an influential European economist. He’s worked in the Prime Minister’s Office in Sweden, and then for the World Bank, and JP Morgan. At a recent economic conference, Erixon said, “The notion of the ever-closer union has been very, very strong for more than 60 years, but it has died.” He debunked the idea that Brexit or President Trump’s EU skepticism had anything to do with the end of the EU. Erixon placed the beginning of the end 15 years ago when France and the Netherlands voted agains the constitutional treaty. “This was an early warning about declining support for anything that suggested a deeper integration.”

This group has managed to resist the efforts of the Philippine army to dislodge this active terrorist takeover. The local fighters have received support from ISIS militants from other countries like Indonesia and Malaysia that are returning form the Middle East battlefields.

In addition, it only pertained to communications on the situation in Syria, and was not a permanent arrangement dealing with other subjects.

ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!” President Trump is a Big Government president. Like Obama, he thinks healthcare can be centrally planned from Washington. But somehow Republicans can do it better. Government cannot make healthcare better or less expensive. Federal bureaucrats in Washington cannot possibly know what one single person needs. In a free market system, government would not issue mandates to insurance companies, subsidize health insurance, or interfere in the practice of medicine. Because every person is different and has unique needs, wants, and desires, a decentralized free market would be effective in providing healthcare that is cheaper and better.

The cow, named Margarita, was rescued from the slaughterhouse four years ago and presented as a gift to a family. The cow won the hearts of the town’s local people. But because of European Union rules, Margarita lacks supporting paperwork tracing her through the foodchain. The owners never registered Maragita because she was never intended to become food.

How The American Government Really Works http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4512-How-The-American-Government-Really-Works During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump made it clear that he wanted to reduce America’s involvement in the Middle East. Yet since becoming president, he launched missiles into Syria in retaliation for alleged gassing of Syrians, causing supporters to wonder what he was doing. In an interview last month, President Bashar al-Assad was asked how he assessed the foreign policy of President Trump. “The American President has no policies. There are policies drawn by the American institutions which control the American regime which are the intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms and oil companies, and financial institutions, in addition to some other lobbies which influence American decision-making.” Assad continued, “The American President merely implements these policies, and the evidence is that when Trump tried to move on a different track, during and after his election campaign, he couldn’t. He came under a ferocious attack.” The American president “might say something; but he ultimately does what these institutions dictate to him,” said Assad.

Merkel Strikes Out on Her Own http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4511-Merkel-Strikes-Out-on-Her-Own After meeting this week with President Trump, Germany’s Angela Merkel, told a Christian Democrat Union election rally that “the times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out.” “We have to fight for our own destiny,” she added. Merkel’s comments are being heralded as a watershed moment in German and American relations. Mrs. Merkel is not happy that President Trump would not commit to backing the Paris climate treaty. During the trip, President Trump told NATO allies that they needed to spend more on their own defense. While addressing NATO, Trump did not publicly guarantee that member countries would aid others when attacked. Mrs. Merkel continued saying, “We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.” If Germany and Europe have to spend money implementing the Paris climate change treaty and spend more on their own defense, Europe will be less competitive with the United States.

Christians Attacked in Egypt http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4510-Christians-Attacked-in-Egypt 29 Coptic Christians were killed Friday by Islamic State terrorists. The Christians were on their way to visit St. Samuel’s monastery when their bus was ambushed by gunmen. The Islamic State has increased its attacks on Egypt’s Christian minority since December. 45 Christians were killed in a Palm Sunday suicide bombing in Coptic churches in Alexandria and Tanta Egypt. And 25 people were killed when Cairo’s St. Mark’s Coptic Cathedral was bombed in December 2016.

Domestic Terrorist Charged http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4509-Domestic-Terrorist-Charged Linwood Michael Kaine, son of US Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia, is charged with “fleeing police on foot, concealing his identity in a public place, and obstructing legal process.” The charges are misdemeanors. At an anti-Trump rally, Kaine was part of a masked group dressed in black who entered the Minnesota state Capitol and threw a smoke bomb and then ran to a nearby place and “tried to change their appearance by doing things like taking off their black clothing, putting on different jackets or hats, and turning their clothing inside out.” “[I]t took three officers, a “knee strike” and a chemical spray to subdue Kaine after he was identified as one of the counterprotesters [sic] who allegedly used fireworks or a smoke bomb to disrupt a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol, according to police spokesman Steve Linders.”

Snowflake Meltdown http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4508-Snowflake-Meltdown University of Mary Washington is being sued by Feminists United, a women’s student group on the campus. The women’s group is suing because the university administration failed to protect the women from offending social media posts. The social media app, Yik Yak, gave users the ability to create and view anonymous discussion threads. According to the suit, the university failed to ban the app from accessing the university’s wifi system. Thereby creating a hostile environment on the campus. It’s questionable whether or not banning the app from accessing the wifi system would have made much difference. The app could still be accessed by student’s phones using the LTE internet service. Yik Yak was shut down in early May 2017 due to declining popularity.

Veterans Affairs Problems Found to be Worse than First Reported http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4507-Veterans-Affairs-Problems-Found-to-be-Worse-than-First-Reported It has been over three years since the Veterans Affairs Administration was allowing veterans to die from lack of medical treatment and then covering up that fact. To date little has been done to effectively address these problems and now more evidence is being uncovered to show that the situation was even worse than initially reported. For example, a review of the VA hospital in Los Angeles shows that at least 225 veterans died while awaiting treatment and 117 of them died while awaiting medical consults to determine what their ailments were. In the first hospital where these problems were reported, the Phoenix VA, the situation has not improved with a report in October 2016 documenting that 215 more veterans died at the facility while awaiting care in 2016.

United States Sends Third Navy Task Force toward North Korea http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4506-United-States-Sends-Third-Navy-Task-Force-toward-North-Korea- In an apparent response to the increasingly belligerent and dangerous actions by North Korea in testing more sophisticated missile technology and enhanced nuclear weapons the United States Navy has deployed another task force to the area. This third carrier strike force is led by the USS Nimitz, one of the largest warships in the U.S. fleet and joins the two other strike forces led by the USS Roald Reagan and the USS Carl Vinson. These combined strike forces along with several US nuclear submarines could if necessary launch a devastating series of attack against North Korea and destroy much if not all of its missile and nuclear sites.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis says goal is now to Annihilate ISIS http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4505-Secretary-of-Defense-James-Mattis-says-goal-is-now-to-Annihilate-ISIS In an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation show, Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated that the Pentagon has now shifted its tactics from fighting a war of attrition against ISIS to annihilating the enemy. He said “our strategy right now is to accelerate our campaign against ISIS.” This change in both strategy and tactics is a major departure from the policy of the Obama administration that was more reactive than proactive. That strategy only succeeded in shifting the ISIS fighters from one location to another while Mattis wants to surround them and kill them so they can’t go someplace else to fight.

DHS Secretary says that back channel communications with Russia “a good thing” http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4504-DHS-Secretary-says-that-back-channel-communications-with-Russia-“a-good-thing” In an apparent response to the often hysterical attacks by some Democrats and the main stream media on Trump son in law and advisor Jared Kushner, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jack Kelly defended the idea of back door channels. Kushner attempted to open back door channels of communication with the Russians both before and after President Trump’s inauguration. This is not illegal or unethical and according to Kelly it is both normal and a good thing. Kelly feels that there should be multiple lines of communication with other countries, particularly those that are not necessarily friendly to us. There are others who defend the process at a time when there are a growing number of leaks of classified information coming out of Washington.

However, for most Americans it is a day to remember the sacrifices of members of our military who have fought and in many cases died or been wounded defending our nation’s freedom for over 240 years. Whether they served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard, this is a day to honor the American heroes, living or dead who have fought for us and are still fighting today.

The type of missile is still unknown, but it is assumed that it was probably a short range solid fuel missile that is capable of hitting South Korea, Japan, or other targets in Asia. When these short range missiles are combined with the long range liquid fuel missiles that have also been test fired it is clear that North Korea is becoming more dangerous all of the time.

Hillary Gets Basic Fact Wrong http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4501-Hillary-Gets-Basic-Fact-Wrong Hillary Clinton gave the commencement address at Wellesley College on Friday. She took a swipe at President Trump by comparing him to President Nixon. “By the way, we were furious about the past presidential election, of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for his obstruction of justice.” Actually, President Nixon resigned the presidency before the House of Representatives could vote on Articles of Impeachment. Mrs. Clinton failed to mention that her husband was impeached by the House when he was president.

Obamacare Repeal Diminishes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4500-Obamacare-Repeal-Diminishes Senate Republicans are not confident that they can craft a healthcare bill that repeals and replaces Obamacare. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is not sure he can get 50 Senators on board with anything the Senate comes up with. When Obama was president, Republicans all joined in the effort to repeal the legislation knowing that Obama would veto it. Now that Republicans have power in all three branches of government, they have backed down. The debate is no longer about the freedom of the American people to decide their own healthcare choices. Instead it’s become a fight over which party gets to control the American people’s healthcare decisions.

Disunity in Britain http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4499-Disunity-in-Britain The propaganda machine in Britain is working overtime. Politicians are reminding the public, “We are stronger.” Prime Minister Theresa May confidently asserts, “The terrorists will never win and our values, our country and our way of life will always prevail.” Politicians can say this because they are protected by the military, police, and intelligence agencies. They are being protected from the consequences of their decisions to allow Britain to be infiltrated by terrorists. The British people are told, “We carry on as normal.” “Business as usual.” Actually the opposite is true. “Britain is in lockdown. Three thousand eight hundred troops are being deployed to protect sites across the UK and armed police have begun roaming patrols around train stations, shopping malls and other easy targets. One thousand soldiers have been posted to guard Buckingham Palace.” The British people hear one thing, but see and live another reality.

Students Are Only Safe When Whites Leave Campus http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4497-Students-Are-Only-Safe-When-Whites-Leave-Campus At Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, black and Latino students have participated in a Day of Absence. They highlight their significance on campus by skipping classes and leaving campus for a day. This year, the students wanted white students and professors to leave campus. Professor Weinstein wrote a well reasoned objection to the plan. By voluntarily leaving campus, students issue a “call to consciousness which is, of course, crippling to the logic of oppression.” But by demanding that whites leave campus, students provoke a “show of force and an act of oppression in and of itself.” Weinstein added, “On a college campus, one’s right to speak—or to be—must never be based on skin color.” Students were outraged and entered his classroom shouting at him and demanding he resign or be fired. The college police department advised Weinstein to stay off campus for a few days. Marissa Parker, a protesting student, said, “If he feels unsafe or frightened for two days, he can only imagine what black and brown bodies have feared for years."

He was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of assaulting supporters of President Trump with a bicycle lock. Clanton was charged Friday with four counts of “assault with deadly weapon” and a fifth misdemeanor count of “wearing a mask to evade identification in the commission of crime.”
http://www.berkeleyside.com/wp-content/uploads/201...

His faculty page at Diablo Valley College reads, “His work in political philosophy also centers on mass incarceration and the prison system. He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.”

The professor pleaded not guilty and bail was set at $100,000. If convicted, the professor will be getting real life experience with mass incarceration and the prison system. It won’t be theoretical armchair philosophy paid for by the taxpayers of California.

Jared Kushner Allegations all come from Unnamed Sources http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4495-Jared-Kushner-Allegations-all-come-from-Unnamed-Sources The son-in-law of President Donald Trump and one of his senior advisors, Jared Kushner, has supposedly come under scrutiny in the FBI Russia investigation. NBC News has reported this based on “information” from multiple U.S. officials, none of whom are identified. This report follows the claim by the Washington Post last week that a White House official had been identified as a “person of interest” in the FBI investigation. However, there are several major problems with these stories. The most obvious is the use of unnamed sources, but secondly best-selling author and investigative reporter Ronald Kessler correctly points out that the FBI has never used the term “person of interest”. This has caused many people to wonder if this is another case of fake news being used to attack to attack Trump and his administration.

The crimes they have committed include drug trafficking, domestic violence, and rape. The raids are fulfilling the campaign pledge of President Donald Trump to deport illegals who have committed crimes. As a result, more than 41,000 arrests have been made since Trump took office and represents a 40% increase over the same period in 2016.

They have been informed in writing that they are in violation if they fly their flags on any day other than the 23 days approved by the HOA. The choice of days seems to be totally arbitrary and often makes no sense, For example, the flag can be flown on Mother’s Day, but not on Father’s Day. The HOA says the "guidelines help maintain the aesthetic and architectural theme of the community”. Both veterans have said that they will not comply with the order, and will sue if necessary to protect their right to fly the American flag.

Trump Asks NATO Nations to Fulfill their Financial Obligations http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4491-Trump-Asks-NATO-Nations-to-Fulfill-their-Financial-Obligations During his campaign for the Presidency Donald Trump was critical of some members of the NATO alliance for failing to fulfill their financial obligations to the important defense organization. Essentially the 28 nations that signed the treaty agreed to spend at least two percent of their Gross National Product on military defense. Currently, only 5 of the countries in the alliance actually meet that obligation. The United States makes up for most of the short fall. Trump complained that this was unfair and promised that if elected he would pressure the members to meet that obligation. On Thursday during the meeting of the national leaders of NATO Trump sought to fulfill that promise by asking the leaders publically to do what they had agreed to.

Deb VanDerhei, national director of Planned Parenthood’s Consortium of Abortion Providers is caught on video saying, “But the truth is that some might want to do it for — to increase their revenues. And we can’t stop them.” In a new undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood executives talk about changing the way they dismember a child so as to preserve the organs. Ann Schutt-Aine, director of abortion services at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast says, “If I’m doing a procedure, and I’m seeing that I’m in fear that it’s about to come to the umbilicus, I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix, and pull off a leg or two, so it’s not [partial-birth abortion].” The Center for Medical Progress is being prosecuted by the California Attorney General’s Office. 15 felony complaints have been filed against the group. The Attorney General’s Office is more concerned that Planned Parenthood has been exposed than that the evidence shows Planned Parenthood is breaking the law.

According to Senator Rand Paul, “There are hundreds and hundreds of people” affected by the spying and unmasking. The FISA court rebuked the Administration saying that it was an “institutional lack of candor” and a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue.” Senator Rand Paul said, "If we determine this to be true, this is an enormous abuse of power," Paul said. “This will dwarf all other stories.”

The government is running out of money. The Treasury slammed into the debt limit in March. The Treasury has been implementing measures to conserve cash. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin told lawmakers that they need to act before the end of July. Apparently American taxpayers are not sending their money to Washington fast enough. And Treasury officials are beginning to sqirm. Considering that the debt ceiling limit makes for tiresome political theater, Congress should do away with the debt ceiling. Nobody in Congress is serious about cutting spending, the deficit, or the national debt. Just remove it and end the drama.

Tell me who you are…I have a right to know who you are!” Etheridge ignored the student’s plea to release his wrist. Instead Etheridge grabbed the student by the neck. The Congressman’s actions cost him the election. But the media never asked Democrat leaders if Etheridge should be publicly denounced. Democrats and the media papered over the incident and gave Etheridge a pass. In contrast, Democrats have been all over Montana Republican Gianforte since his altercation with a reporter. Nancy Pelosi said, “And to see this person who wants to be the one representative into the House of Representatives from Montana be sort of a wannabe Trump — you know, use language like that, treat people harshly like that that's his model. Donald Trump's his model. And we've really got to say, ‘Come on, behave, behave.’”

Farmer Facing $2.8 Million Fine for Plowing His Land http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4484-Farmer-Facing-$2.8-Million-Fine-for-Plowing-His-Land As Americans remember America’s veterans ending tyranny in Europe, let’s be wary of government tyranny in our own backyard. John Duarte, a farmer in Tehama County California, is being dragged into federal court because he did not get a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to plow his field and plant wheat. His land has marshy depressions and wetlands. So he consulted with a firm to map areas that could not be plowed so as to avoid areas of drainage for creeks that are considered “waters of the United States.” After planting the wheat, the Army Corps of Engineers and the California Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board issued cease and desist orders. Duarte had not obtained a permit to discharge dredged or fill material into seasonal wetlands. In addition to civil penalties, the feds are demanding that Duarte repair the damage to the wetlands, smooth the soil, and replant native plants. “A plain reading of the rules says you don’t need a permit to do what he did,” Duarte’s attorney said. “How do you impose a multimillion penalty on someone for thinking the law says what it says.”

During the address, Zuckerberg joined with other elitists in Silicon Valley to call for a universal basic income. He proclaimed, "We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas." Zuckerberg will jump at the chance to seize and redistribute your money in his utopian scheme. It’s doubtful that he’ll volunteer to give up any of his billions to make sure the poor and insignificant in America get a universal basic income.

Manchester Bomb Maker Believed to Still be at Large. http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4482-Manchester-Bomb-Maker-Believed-to-Still-be-at-Large. The Manchester Evening News is reporting that British authorities believe that Salman Abedi did not manufacture the bomb he was wearing and detonated at the Manchester arena during an Ariana Grande concert. Instead, it is believed that the bomb maker is still at large and may strike again at any time.

It has also become clear that Salman Abedi was part of a larger conspiracy that may have included his father and brother who have both been arrested. The father was arrested in Libya and has been identified as a member of a group affiliated with Al Qaeda. The fear of the bomb maker striking again is the primary reason for the U.K. raising its terror threat level to critical.

U.S. Navy Warship Challenges China in the South China Sea http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4481-U.S.-Navy-Warship-Challenges-China-in-the-South-China-Sea In the first of its kind move by the Trump administration a United States warship has conducted a freedom of navigation operation in the South China Sea. The USS Dewey, an American warship sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island constructed by the Chinese in an area of shoals and other islands disputed by other countries in the area such as Japan and Taiwan.

While this action is certain to anger Beijing, it has been hailed by the U.S. partners in the region who have joined with the American military in their concerns over Chinese efforts to restrict freedom of navigation in the area.

Civil War Museum Closing in Georgia http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4480-Civil-War-Museum-Closing-in-Georgia The Nash Farm Battlefield Museum in Henry County, Georgia that is right outside of Atlanta is being forced to close its doors on June 1st because of a demand by a county commissioner that all confederate flags on display in the Civil war museum and gift shop be removed. The demand was made because the commissioner said that the flags might offend someone.

While the museum is on land owned by the county most of the artifacts are on loan by private citizens. Many local residents are outraged because they say the museum presents the history of the civil war from both sides since all of the soldiers were Americans. This follows the removal of four confederate monuments in the historic city of New Orleans. The mayor their Democrat Mitch Landrieu equated the monuments to terrorism.

British Government Furious Over New York Times Publishing of Evidence http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4479-British-Government-Furious-Over-New-York-Times-Publishing-of-Evidence Within a few hours of the vicious terrorist attack on the concert in Manchester, England where 22 people were killed and 59 injured, the New York Times was publishing photographs of physical evidence found by British authorities that the British considered highly sensitive. This has infuriated British authorities who had shared this information with the American intelligence network and believe that is the source of the leaks.

If this is true it supports the claims by the White House that someone in the intelligence community is leaking information to the press in violation of federal law. British Prime Minister Theresa May plans to discuss these concerns with President Trump but does not believe he is personally responsible.

Chinese Boasting of Executing CIA Operatives in the Last Few Years http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4478-Chinese-Boasting-of-Executing-CIA-Operatives-in-the-Last-Few-Years The Chinese government has been boasting recently about uncovering and executing a number of its citizens who it claims were working for the CIA. This came amid revelations that as many as 20 Chinese citizens were executed between 2010 and 2012, and the executions appear to be continuing to this day. This started while Obama was President and resulted from probable leaks from people working in his administration.

However, this was never reported in the main stream media and no investigation was launched into the source of these leaks. Yet the media is in a frenzy over unsubstantiated reports that Trump leaked classified information to two Russian diplomats, at a White House meeting. No one has been reported killed by anyone as a result of this alleged leak which has been denied by everyone who attended the meeting.

Women of the View use the UK Terrorist Attack to Criticize Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4477-Women-of-the-View-use-the-UK-Terrorist-Attack-to-Criticize-Trump In what appears to be another instance of political correctness run amok two of the cohosts of the View, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg saw the horrifying terrorist attack in Manchester as an opening to criticize President Trump. They objected to the President as referring to Islamic terrorists who targeted a venue full of mostly young women and girls as “evil losers”. They claim the characterization was “unpresidential” and the seemed to prefer the Obama approach of refusing to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” when talking about attacks such as this one.

Lieberman Out http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4476-Lieberman-Out Former Senator Joe Lieberman is no longer under consideration for FBI Director. In short, the optics were bad. Lieberman worked for the law firm that President Trump retained to navigate the Russia investigation. Lieberman would have been perceived as an ally in the FBI. There were other additional downsides to appointing Lieberman. He had no law enforcement experience. He is a Democrat. And he is a good friend of Senator John McCain’s. Trump needs to appoint someone who will uphold the law and is independent of partisan conflicts.

TSA Gets Ready to Hassle More Travelers http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4475-TSA-Gets-Ready-to-Hassle-More-Travelers New TSA screening procedures for travelers are getting ready to be rolled out at airports. The TSA is experimenting with new procedures, such as having all food or electronics put in separate bins. In one test, passengers were required to separate all paper from their carry on baggage. This test became too burdensome and was suspended after a few days. Government screeners need to be able to identify every item in a carry on bag. “It is not any one particular item we’re worried about. It’s not about paper or food or anything. It’s how best to divest those items,” says Darby LaJoye, assistant administrator for security operations. The TSA will also be rolling out machines to verify IDs. It will check for fake IDs and match names with passenger lists.

The survey was conducted between May 5th, 2017 and May 11th, 2017. They asked, “Do you agree with college campuses establishing safe spaces?” 36% of students said, “Yes, they are absolutely necessary for students.” 37% answered, “No, they are completely out of touch from reality.” 25% said they were “Indifferent.” Safe spaces are places where adult college students can go to avoid hearing opposing opinions or having their feelings hurt.

Interesting Data Points http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4473-Interesting-Data-Points Now that it is a Microagression to say that America is the land of opportunity, it’s interesting to look at the data. Economics professor Mark J. Perry compiled data showing the median US household income by selected ethnic groups. Apparently there still is opportunity in America for skilled and ambitious immigrants. Based on Census Bureau data available for 2015, Indian immigrants to America top the list for Median US Household Income at $103,821. Then, Taiwanese: $91,366, Filipino: $81,564, Japanese: $75,818. White Americans come in 18th on the list at $59,698.

Government School Violence http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4471-Government-School-Violence Two government school employees will be fired for fighting in front of students in a a classroom. The school district released a statement saying, “The two school employees caught on video in the fight in the classroom last Friday will be terminated following the conclusion of the appropriate district processes.” The incident began as the government’s employees were arguing over another male teacher. It escalated swiftly so that the women began “throwing punches and pulling hair.” The fight was recorded on student’s cell phones. When government administrators entered the room, the phones were searched and the evidence deleted. “I think they were trying to push it under the rug so nobody would know about it and the school’s reputation wouldn’t be messed up,” said one student. At least one video copy of the incident survived and made its way to the local television station.

In his speech, Obama talked about the importance of addressing climate change so as to protect the world’s food supply. “When it comes to climate change, the hour is almost upon us,” he warned. Obama flew in on a private plane accompanied by six military jets. He drove to the vacation spot in a 13 vehicle motorcade. It’s estimated that Obama’s trip contributed an additional 16 metric tons of carbon to the atmosphere.

Illinois Democrats Raise Taxes http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4469-Illinois-Democrats-Raise-Taxes Democrats in the Illinois Senate passed a new budget that hikes personal and corporate income taxes by $5 billion. The state sales tax would be extended to include various services not currently taxed, such as dry cleaning. The proposed budget calls for spending $37.3 billion. The budget was not passed with any Republican votes. The Republican governor is not likely to sign the legislation without Republican support. Complicating the state’s finances is the public pension system. It is underfunded by $130 billion. Long-term, Illinois may be looking at bankruptcy or a federal bailout. If taxes get too high, Illinois residents can move to another state. It’s estimated that 89,000 people have left the Chicago area for other states.

Overseas Trip Considered Success http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4468-Overseas-Trip-Considered-Success Months of advance planning went into President Trump’s visit to the Middle East. The planning team made certain to pack the president’s schedule so tightly that he would stay on message and not have time get on Twitter. The White House was successful in leaving the Russia investigation questions behind in Washington. Instead White House officials focused Trump on creating personal friendships with foreign leaders and changing the perception of America’s relationship with the world. Some Democrats are even praising the trip. “The trip so far has gone as well as they could have desired,” said Democratic strategist Anita Dunn, a former top adviser to Obama. “The visuals have been good, by and large, and he looks presidential.”

No Conspiracy http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4467-No-Conspiracy On Tuesday, former CIA Director, John Brennan, said that President Trump had not put pressure on the CIA to drop its investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. When asked if President Trump had tried to use the intelligence community to push back on the Russian collusion issue, Brennan said, “I am unaware of it.” Brennan’s denials don’t advance Democrat’s narrative that the president is guilty of obstruction of justice. The New York Times is alleging that President Trump urged former FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn. However, Comey testified before the Senate that he had not been pressured to drop the Flynn investigation. Comey will testify before a Senate committee next week.

Trump’s Budget Plan http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4466-Trump’s-Budget-Plan Democrats in the media and Congress are telling Americans that trillions of dollars will be cut in President Trump’s budget. The Administration is proposing to cut discretionary spending by $54 billion and then keep cutting by 2% every year for the next ten years. However, the budget proposes to add $54 billion to defense spending in 2018 and increase defense funding every year for the next ten years. An additional $2.6 billion on border security is proposed. Rather than cutting trillions, the 2018 budget will spend $4.1 trillion. That is more than what was spent in 2017. Now that Republicans are in charge of the budget, they are finding out how fun it is to spend taxpayer dollars.

Conservatives Co-opted http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4465-Conservatives-Co-opted Mick Mulvaney, head of Office of Management and Budget, presented the Trump Administration’s budget plan for the 2018 fiscal year. The budget plan includes creating and funding a plan to give mothers and fathers paid time off following the birth or adoption of a child. Conservatives consider paying people to stay at home as bad economics. Mulvaney was thought to be a solid conservative, free market, Freedom Caucus guy while in the House of Representatives. Today however, he was defending paid parental leave. He explained, “We try and create the environment where people are more comfortable going back to work and staying at work knowing that if they do have a child, they’ll be able to spend time with that child under the paid parental leave program.” Paid time off was pushed by Ivanka Trump who is an advocate for the policy in the White House.

Single-Payer Healthcare in California http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4464-Single-Payer-Healthcare-in-California California Democrats are pushing single-payer healthcare in the state. The cost of the system would be an estimated $400 billion. The cost of the healthcare plan would more than twice the current state budget. All residents in the state would be covered, including illegal aliens. There would be no insurance deductibles or co-pays. California politicians would have to raise taxes and find new sources of revenue. Californians already have the sixth highest tax burden in the country. Colorado, New York, and Vermont have all floated single-payer systems. Vermont’s plan collapsed under the costs. Colorado voters rejected a single-payer plan because taxes would be too high. New York’s plan would require doubling or even quadrupling taxes. The California Chamber of Commerce warns that there would be significant job losses in the state.

Are IT Staffers Blackmailing Members of Congress? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4463-Are-IT-Staffers-Blackmailing-Members-of-Congress? Three Pakistani brothers, who handled information technology for several Democrat lawmakers, were banned from congressional computer networks by Capitol Hill police in February. The brothers are suspected of stealing equipment from members’ offices and for accessing congressional computers without permission. Now five IT aides say that the members of Congress who had hired the brothers, now display “an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them.” The IT aides went on to speculate if the brothers are blackmailing the members of congress. “I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz renamed one of the brothers as an advisor to get around the Capitol Hill police ban. Schultz was one of the people targeted in the hack on the Democrat National Committee in early 2016. Shultz has been in the forefront of saying that the Russians were behind the hacking of the DNC computers and that Trump and the Russians were in collusion. Yet when there is evidence of real wrong doing by the Pakistani brothers, Shultz and other Democrat lawmakers have shown intense loyalty to the perpetrators.

This success may be part of the reason why liberals are demanding that Drudge be banned entirely from the internet. They argue that Drudge is a member of the so-called alternative right network but offer no proof of that other than to offer concerns about its popularity and its conservative leanings. When compared to some of the left leaning news websites the Drudge Report often seems middle of the road.

He also has kept his promise to make no cuts to social security and Medicare. However, it is already receiving considerable criticism from Democrats for proposing significant cuts to some of their sacred cows like Medicaid, food stamps, and other welfare programs. It is expected that a number of changes will be proposed by members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, but this is usually the case. However, White House officials argue that the budget accomplishes two important goals, reducing the federal deficit and the burden on American taxpayers.

Stolen Valor http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4460-Stolen-Valor For many military veterans one of the worse acts that can be committed is when a civilian with no military experience claims to be a wartime hero. However, as bad as that is, it is considered even worse when the claim is faked in order to get benefits that real veterans have earned with their honorable service. One such incident occurred when a 68 year old /Wisconsin man produced faked paperwork that allegedly showed that he was a Navy Seal who had served in Vietnam and received a Bronze Star for valor, and four Purple Hearts for wounds received in combat. Kenneth E. Jozwiak made the claims in order to get Veterans Affairs benefits designed to assist low income veterans. When all the claims were found to be false he was arrested, tried and has received a four year prison sentence.

Many people are asking how former current officials would know about meetings taking place in the current White House. In addition, one of the latest assaults launched initially by the New York Times and quickly picked up by other outlets likes the Washington Post and CNN was the claim that Trump had revealed classified intelligence information to Russian diplomats during a White House meeting. This was supposed to be backed up by quotes from internal White House documents. The quotes were apparently read to New York Times reporters over the phone and these reporters later admitted that they had not seen the documents, did not know what else was in them and had not verified their authenticity.

Others have pointed out that these attacks are carried out not in the name of religion, but to create terror and force an ideology of terror and conquest on the world. The Muslim religion is used as a cover.

This is the highest level and essentially means that another attack may be imminent. It also means that British soldiers will be deployed to assist police in protecting all public events. The attack on an Ariana Grande concert left 22 people dead and scores injured. One of the deceased was only eight years old. The suicide bomber has been identified as Salman Abedi, a British citizen of Libyan descent and a Muslim. ISIS has claimed it was behind the attack.

The attack occurred at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at an arena above the main Manchester train hub of Victoria Station. Police are reporting at least nineteen dead and fifty injured. Local medical facilities are being overwhelmed and are stating that many of the wounds they are treating are consistent with an explosive device that contained projectiles such as nails. The attack occurred outside of the arena as people were leaving. There was at least one explosion and police have speculated that this may have been a suicide bombing.

Study Finds Multiple Voter Registrations is a Major Problem http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4453-Study-Finds-Multiple-Voter-Registrations-is-a-Major-Problem According to information obtained by a voter registration cross check program more than seven million voters in the United States are registered to vote in more than one state. The program was started in 2005 and is run by the Kansas Secretary of State’s office. The data includes information on 28 states that participate in the program with the largest number of multiple state voters appearing in Georgia, North Carolina, and Illinois. North Carolina also has the distinction of having an extraordinarily high number of voters that are registered at more than one precinct within the state itself. On May 11, President Donald Trump signed an executive order establishing a commission to look into possible voter fraud in the United States. It appears it will have a lot of work to do.

Trump Reaffirms United State Support of Israel http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4452-Trump-Reaffirms-United-State-Support-of-Israel During his visit with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu President Trump addressed the relationship of the United States with Israel in a tone that was a polar opposite of that taken by his predecessor Barack Obama. Obama was openly antagonistic toward Israel and it leader even going so far as to send money and campaign operatives to try and defeat Netanyahu’s reelection bid. Trump, on the other hand reaffirmed that the United States considers Israel as our best friend and ally in the region and pledged to defend it while at the same time assisting in trying to reach a peace agreement with the Jewish state and the Palestinians.

He appeared to be laying the groundwork for a new NATO type alliance in the Middle East. Present at the speech were numerous leaders from Arab countries as well as countries in Africa and the Far East. Trump also called for unified action against the Iranians who are considered the primary sponsor of state terrorism throughout the region. Its military is also active in Syria in support of the Assad government and in the civil war in Yemen.

Wi-Fi Holography http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4450-Wi-Fi-Holography German scientists have found a way to take the signal from Wi-Fi and create 3D photographs of objects inside a room while being outside of the room. Currently the technology is in its infancy and has limited resolution. It can make out the shape of an object that is more that four centimeters in size. With better software and more research, it might be applied in rescue situations where rescue workers need to detect people in rubble. Or government spy agencies might be able to detect what is happening inside a house. Philipp Hall, the German physics research student studying the technology says, "You could probably use a drone to map out the inside of an entire building in 20 to 30 seconds.”

Supreme Court Creates More Confusion http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4449-Supreme-Court-Creates-More-Confusion The Supreme Court ruled that two congressional districts in North Carolina violate the Voting Rights Act. The decision further confuses how to draw voting districts. It is lawful to draw a district to gain a partisan advantage. But not lawful if the district is drawn for racial reasons. Justice Alito wrote, “If around 90% of African-American voters cast their ballots for the Democratic candidate, as they have in recent elections, a plan that packs Democratic voters will look very much like a plans that packs African-American voters.” The plaintiffs in the case did not present an alternative map of the district. The court gave no guidance as to how to draw a court approved map.

Michael Flynn May Have Lied to Investigators http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4448-Michael-Flynn-May-Have-Lied-to-Investigators One reason Michael Flynn may not be complying with a Senate subpoena is that he may not have told the truth to Pentagon investigators when he was applying for a top-secret security clearance. Representative Elijah Cummings released excerpts of an internal Pentagon report. Cummings wrote that the investigation and reports, “appear to indicate that General Flynn lied to the investigators who interviewed him in 2016 as part of his security clearance renewal.” Flynn is alleged to have mislead investigators about the sources of income from Russian based companies and contacts with Russian officials. Knowingly lying to federal investigators is a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Subprime Auto Loan Bubble http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4447-Subprime-Auto-Loan-Bubble Santander, one of the largest originators of subprime loans, verified income on just 8% of borrowers. Much like the mortgage loans that were bundled and sold to investors, auto loans are being bundled in to bonds and sold to pension and insurance companies. After the 2008 financial crisis, regulations outlawed state-income loans for mortgages. This has not been the case for auto loans. Santander has at least $15 billion in outstanding loans made to high risk buyers. This is another debt bubble in the economy that will eventually burst.

Boehner Convinced Trump to Sign Spending Bill http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4446-Boehner-Convinced-Trump-to-Sign-Spending-Bill Former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, talked President Trump into signing legislation that kept the government running for the remainder of the fiscal year. Trump did not like the negotiated spending bill. It gave the Democrats much of what they wanted. Planned Parenthood was funded. There was no money for the border wall. Puerto Rico and Medicaid were funded. It was considered a loss for Republicans. Trump wanted to veto the spending bill. However, chief of staff Reince Priebus found a way to convince the president to sign it. Priebus called in Boehner to make the argument. Boehner pointed out that domestic funding did not have to increase in exchange for an increase in military spending. And he convinced Trump that the last thing the president needed was a government shutdown. The establishment appears adept at keeping the president in line with establishment goals.

Patent Trolls Lose At Supreme Court http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4445-Patent-Trolls-Lose-At-Supreme-Court Companies that buy up patents so they can sue and demand royalties were dealt a setback by the Supreme Court on Monday. In a unanimous decision, the court clarified where patent suits may be filed. Patent trolls have filed suits in federal courts known for their friendliness to plaintiffs. One federal court in East Texas saw 40 percent of patent suits filed in its court. Writing for the court, Justice Thomas wrote, “As applied to domestic corporations, residence refers only to the State of incorporation.” Now patent cases will move to states where companies are actually located. It’s anticipated that Delaware, California, and New York will begin to hear more patent litigation.

The subpoena sought documents related to alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign. The Fifth Amendment generally does not extend to the production of documents. By not complying with the subpoena, Flynn sets himself up for being found in contempt of Congress. The full Senate would have to vote as to whether or not to refer the contempt citation to the Department of Justice. The Justice Department would then have to decided whether or not to press charges.

Private Prisons Recovery http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4443-Private-Prisons-Recovery In August of 2016, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates issued a memo to the Bureau of Prisons directing the Bureau to reduct and finally end the federal government’s use of private prisons.

https://www.justice.gov/archives/opa/blog/phasing-out-our-use-private-prisons

However, the day after Trump was elected, the stocks of private prison companies soared. It appears insiders knew something that the public did not. According to Non Profit Quarterly, just before the election, two of Sessions’ former Senate aides, “David Stewart and Ryan Robichaux, became lobbyists for GEO Group, one of the two largest private prison companies, and the the two were specifically engaged to lobby on government contracting.”

https://nonprofitquarterly.org/2017/02/27/follow-money-former-sessions-aides-lobbyists-private-prisons-group/

After becoming Attorney General, Sessions reversed the August memorandum. Doing away with private prisons would have “impaired the Bureau’s ability to meet the future need of the federal correctional system.” Sessions recently announced that federal prosecutors would be seeking mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes. Private prison companies are expecting a large influx of new prisoners and government contracts as the drug war heats up.

Student Debt Fiasco http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4442-Student-Debt-Fiasco Debt collection agencies are paid almost $1 billion by the federal government every year to collect student loans that are in default. Since 2013 the US Department of Education has paid $4.2 billion to collection companies. The government is paying $38 to collect one dollar of debt. Through a program of rehabilitation, defaulted students work with debt collectors to return to good standing. Bloomberg reports, “If a borrower subsequently makes nine on-time monthly payments of as little as $5 during a 10-month period, their loans are returned to good standing and the default is supposed to be wiped from their credit reports.” But nearly half of these borrowers are in default again within three years. Collection’s companies are paid regardless how poorly their collection rates are.

Bankrupting Student Loans http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4441-Bankrupting-Student-Loans Representative John Delaney, (D) introduced legislation to make student loans dischargeable in bankruptcy. It’s estimated that student loan debt is $1.4 trillion. The federal government took over the student loan program completely in 2010. It regularly makes loans to students with no credit history. By making money freely available to students, the government has driven up the cost of higher education. Universities know that students will borrow any amount of money needed to pay tuition. So there is no limit to how high tuition rates can go. Bankrupting student loan debt would burst another bubble in the economy and may create more economic instability.

The federal court said that Mohamed "does not allege any facts from which this court can reasonably infer that any [Irving Independent School District] employee intentionally discriminated against Ahmed Mohamed based on his race or religion." The boy is believed to have taken apart a working clock, and put the electronics into another case. He took credit for inventing a clock.

Fire Hydrant of Leaks http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4439--Fire-Hydrant-of-Leaks The leaks surrounding the Trump Administration have taken on a life of their own. When Trump was a business man in New York, he regularly leaked to the tabloids to keep his name in the headlines. He would try to control the outcome of the stories. But as President, he’s not been able to control the leaks, much less the outcome. To a large extent, the problem is of his own making. The administration still has 455 key executive positions to fill. And many Obama holdovers control various parts of the bureaucracy. Obama holdovers are finding that by selectively leaking policy and budget details, they are able to throw a wrench into the administration’s plans. Roger Stone said, “If you employ people who aren’t loyal to you, you can’t be surprised when they leak.” With in the White House, Trump has surrounded himself with people who are there to serve their own interests rather than serve the country.

Obamacare Subsidies Coming to an End? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4438--Obamacare-Subsidies-Coming-to-an-End? Obamacare is teetering on a poor foundation. Now President Trump may give the ACA the final push it needs to come tumbling down. The President is reportedly in favor of ending Obamacare subsidies. The government subsidies are what millions of people rely upon to pay for the expensive healthcare. The White House is committed to continuing the subsidies through May. But continuing the funding beyond may is not certain. By not funding the subsidies, Trump may force the Democrats to the negotiating table to discuss a replacement to the failing ACA. The insurance market is looking for clarity. If the subsidies are not funded, then customers won’t be able to afford the expensive healthcare premiums. Insurers will likely begin pulling out of some markets.

Constituents who depend on the Affordable Health Care Act are furious about the changes that Republicans are proposing in their House bill. They fear that they will lose their healthcare. Conservatives feared that once people began to enjoy the benefits of the ACA, that it would become an entitlement and be impossible to fully repeal.

However, according by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel two veterans applied for two openings in the International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program. Since they had the proper credentials and were veterans they could not be turned down so the Department of Justice under President Obama tried to pressure them to withdraw their applications. The veterans refused so the DOJ canceled the initial job openings and relisted them a year later with qualification requirements they knew the two veterans could not meet. The Office of Special Counsel found all of this to be illegal.

American intelligence officials believe the long range missiles are now capable of hitting targets as far away as the west coast of the United States. On the other hand the shorter range missiles can hit targets in South Korea and even japan.

Court of Appeals panel said that registering drones violates the recreational model airplane exemption. “The FAA’s 2015 registration rule, which applies to model aircraft, directly violates that clear statutory prohibition,” the opinion said. “We therefore grant Taylor’s petition and vacate the registration rule to the extent it applies to model aircraft.” The registration rule was issued by the FAA in December of 2015. It was onerous and overbearing. Recreational drone users had to give the government their name, email address, physical address, pay a $5 registration fee, and display a unique drone ID number at all times. Failure to comply could result in civil and criminal penalties.

Democrats Prefer Chaos to Impeachment http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4428-Democrats-Prefer-Chaos-to-Impeachment- Some influential Democrats appear to be backing away from their calls for impeaching President Trump. In a press conference on Wednesday, House Democrat leaders said, “No one ought to, in my view, rush to embrace the most extraordinary remedy that involves the removal of the president from office,” said Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the sober-minded senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He warned that Democrats should not let their actions “be perceived as an effort to nullify the election by other means.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/18/us/politics/democrats-trump-impeachment.html

Apparently, Democrats would rather roil Trump with leaks, charges, speculation, and ridicule to soften him up in a re-election bid. Impeaching and removing Trump from office would mean elevating Mike Pence to the presidency who would bring stability to the White House. That would not fit the Democrat election playbook.

Swedish director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny, dropped the case because bringing Assange to Sweden was not going to happen “in the foreseeable future.” Now that Sweden has not renewed its European arrest warrant for Assange, the legal landscape may be more treacherous for Assange. Assange still faces charges in Britain of jumping bail in 2012. The United States wants Assange extradited to America for publishing classified documents on Wikileaks. The US and Britain refuse to say whether or not a US warrant has been issued for his arrest. Ecuador granted Assange political asylum in 2012. Ecuador’s government asked Britain to grant safe passage so that he might seek long-term asylum once in the country.

But she’s not backing away from her hope that President Trump is impeached. “I’ve said we've got to connect the dots, we’ve got to get the facts, we’ve got to do the investigation. That is what leads to impeachment and I also said that Trump will lead us right there.” Democrats have built up so much hype and expectation that the Russians influenced the election, that walking the story back will be difficult.

How Dare They http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4423-How-Dare-They Officials in the Austrian city of Tulln are refusing to accept any more refugees until further notice. A 15-year-old girl was raped by three Muslim migrants in April as she was on her way home. Police have collected DNA samples of 59 migrants. One man is in police custody. Mayor Peter Eisenschenk said, “For me, there is zero tolerance against asylum seekers who abuse their guest countries law. In view of what these criminals have done to the girl, the full severity of the law is required.” Since Muslim migrants have poured into Europe, the crime rate has soared. But governments have concealed the increase in crime, even going so far as totell victims that it’s racist to indicate the race of the perpetrators.

Baltimore Schools Failing Students http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4422-Baltimore-Schools-Failing-Students Not a single student is proficient in math and English in six Baltimore City schools. "That's absurd to me," says Janel Nelson, the mother of one Frederick Douglass student. "That's your teacher's report card, ultimately." Teacher’s unions constantly pressure states to spend more on education. However, Baltimore schools spend $16,000 per student, the fourth highest in the nation. More money is not delivering better education. One student said, “The tests are harder than what we’re learning in class.”

Obamacare Repeal http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4421-Obamacare-Repeal The bill to overturn and replace Obamacare is still languishing in the House. It has not been sent over to the Senate for consideration. The bill is being scored by the Congressional Budget Office. The scoring is expected to be finished next week. Republicans pushed the legislation through before last minute amendments could be scored by the CBO. If the bill is sent to the Senate but does not save at least $2 billion, Republicans would have to start all over with a new budget resolution. If Republicans keep the bill in the House until after it is scored and it does not meet the threshold of $2 billion, it can be changed. But it will require one more vote in the House. The legislation barely passed the first time. Getting the votes from reluctant Republicans a second time will be difficult.

Chaffetz asked that Comey’s memos be turned over to the committee and invited the former director to testify next week. Chaffetz has been criticized for not investigating the Trump Administration with the same aggressiveness as he did with the Obama Administration.

Iraqi special forces found evidence that ISIS has been testing new types of explosives that can be hidden in laptop computers. The explosives are not detectable with current security screening equipment. Discussions about banning laptop computers on flights from Europe and Britain to the Unites States are ongoing. Officials in the US and EU have agreed to increase the sharing of information. Currently there is a ban on electronic devices bigger than a cell phone on flights originating from 10 Middle East airports. There have been several reports of electronics with lithium-ion batteries overheating and catching on fire. Would putting laptop computers in the cargo section of the plane be a safety hazard?

Lieberman for FBI? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4418-Lieberman-for-FBI? Joe Lieberman is in the running for FBI Director. Trump may think that appointing a Democrat to the position may appease Democrats in Congress. By appointing Lieberman, Trump would be further empowering the establishment and those that hate him. Lieberman is good friends with Senator John McCain, another Trump opponent. Lieberman has long wanted to emulate the Chinese control of the internet. "Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too." While in the Senate, Lieberman introduced legislation called, “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010,” or the “kill switch” bill. The act would have given the President emergency powers over the internet.

Judge Napolitano is reporting that former FBI Director Comey had his agents hire a former British intelligence agent to dig up dirt on candidate Trump. Comey was willing to pay $50,000 for the report. “The story the agent dug up was so lurid and unbelievable that the FBI declined to make the payment," according to Napolitano. Senator McCain heard about the report and flew one of his aides to Britain to get a copy. When he gave it to Director Comey, he told McCain that he was already aware of its contents. Was Comey a rogue director seeking to cause political harm to both candidates?

NAFTA To Be Renegotiated http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4416--NAFTA-To-Be-Renegotiated During the presidential campaign, candidate Trump promised to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA is not free trade but crony trade. It’s managed trade where bureaucrats and politicians control the levers of power and provide advantages for themselves. Politicians cannot know what goods and services need to be produced. And politicians are motivated to create trade barriers because they need money for re-election. To the extent that trade barriers were removed and goods and services have been allowed to flow unimpeded, Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans have all benefited. If NAFTA is renegotiated so that it increases trade and does away with the cronyism, the three countries will win. The simplest free trade agreement would be for Canada, Mexico, and the United States to publish a one page document saying that their governments have removed all trade barriers and citizens and companies are allowed to trade goods and services.

However, according to New York City authorities this is not believed to have been terrorist related, but the result of actions by 26 year old Richard Rojas, a resident of the Bronx who has a history of DUIs and apparently was fleeing the scene of a robbery when the incident occurred.

During his campaign he was highly critical of the treaty because he claimed it took jobs away from American workers and hurt American businesses. A few weeks ago Trump announced he was going to pull the United States out of the agreement, but after being contacted by the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of Mexico with offers to renegotiate he reconsidered. The offer has been accepted and Trump is expected to push hard for a treaty more favorable for the U.S.

For only the second time since American troops entered Syria to help train anti-Assad rebels and groups fighting ISIS American aircraft have been ordered by the local American commander on the ground to attack Syrian forces directly. The only previous such attack was ordered by the President on a Syrian airbase where chemical weapons had been deployed against civilians. This new attack was against Syrian forces supporting Assad who had moved into one of the so-called safe zones established by the anti-Assad coalition to protect civilians. Warning shots were fired at the Syrian troops, but they failed to leave so the airstrike was ordered under the authority granted to local authorities by President Trump

When rumors began to circulate early in the week that the embassy move would not happen, Sheldon Adelson was reportedly furious. Adelson gave $5 million to the Trump inauguration. President Trump is seeking a peace deal to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Moving the embassy now would create problems for an agreement. The administration wants to build relationships and trust between the two sides.

Former FBI Director Appointed Special Counsel http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4408--Former-FBI-Director-Appointed-Special-Counsel Robert Mueller, former Director of the FBI, has been appointed special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. The investigation into Russian influence may be wrapped up quickly. Mueller is known to be a quick study. While it is doubtful that there are any Russian connections to the Trump campaign, for at least the next campaign cycle Democrats in Congress will raise million in campaign donations off of the investigation. More alarming is that Special Counsels tend to take on a life of their own. Robert Mueller is authorized to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation” and is “authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation….” It’s the cases that arise from investigation that may take years to prosecute. And given President Trump’s poor handling of the attacks that have been directed towards him, he may provide enough curve balls to keep the investigation alive.

Merkel, who has little regard for Germany’s borders, said "If the British government ends the free movement of people, that will have its price.” "This isn't malicious, but they cannot say there will be an upper limit of 100,000 or 200,000 EU citizens, no more. "That will not work. We would have to think about what obstacle we create from the European side to compensate for that."

Freeloading Taxpayers http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4406-Freeloading-Taxpayers Governor Jerry Brown thinks that California taxpayers who want to keep their own money are “freeloaders". The new state budget of $52 billion includes raising the gas tax by 12-cents a gallon beginning November 1st and raising vehicle license fees by an average of $50 more a year beginning January 1st. Republicans alternatively proposed budget cuts to fund road maintenance. “Roads require money to fix,” Brown said. “Republicans say there’s a magic source of money — it doesn’t exist. …You want to borrow money and pay double? Or do nothing? Or take money from universities?" Republicans are trying to recall state Senator Josh Newman who barely won his seat in an upset victory. His win gave Democrats a two-thirds majority in the state senate. And he voted for the tax increase. Governor Brown came into Newman’s district to support him. Speaking of the taxpayers who want roads but don’t want to pay for them with tax increases, Brown said, “The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them.” This is not the first time Governor Brown has been condescending to businesses and taxpayers. In 2014, in response to Toyota leaving California for Texas, Brown said “We've got a few problems, we have lots of little burdens and regulations and taxes. But smart people figure out how to make it."

Government Must Never Do Without http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4405-Government-Must-Never-Do-Without Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is saying that any legislation that cuts taxes must be revenue neutral. “It will have to be revenue-neutral,” he said. “We have a $21 trillion debt.” When Mitch McConnell became majority leader of the Senate in January 2014, the national debt was $18 trillion. He’s assisted in running up the national debt by an additional $3.1 trillion. When American families don’t bring in enough money, they have to cut their spending. This never seems to be the case for government. In fact, the attitude of politicians is that government must never do without. More revenue or revenue neutral tax cuts won’t solve the national debt. Instead government must stop spending more than it takes in and make large cuts to its expenditures.

President Trump gave the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy today. “Adversity makes you stronger—don’t give in and don’t back down and never stop doing what you know is right,” he told the graduates.

What would a Pence Presidency would look like?Tax reform would likely be on the agenda. While governor of Indiana, the state legislature cut the income tax by 5% and eliminated the inheritance tax. A drop in the state’s corporate income tax rate is being phased in, going from 6.5% to 4.9% by 2021. At the federal level, Pence has supported a flat tax rate. He’s opposed to raising the minimum wage because he understands that it hurts the working poor. While in Congress, Pence opposed the TARP bailout and the bailout of the auto industry. He’ does not support birthright citizenship. And he opposed the DREAM Act. On Social Security, Pence believes that everything needs to be on the table from raising the retirement age to making cuts. He’s called global warming a “myth”. And while in Congress he voted to reign in the EPA. But in 2016 he said “there’s no question” that human’s affect the climate.

These resulted in dozens of suspected gang members being arrested. Specifically targeted were gang leaders. Los Angeles is the home base of MS-13 in the United States. Part of the reason may be because almost half of those arrested were illegals from countries like El Salvador and Honduras and since Los Angeles is a sanctuary city they felt safer.

These missiles can do severe damage to U.S. military bases and to civilian areas even if they are only armed with conventional warheads. However, military leaders are also concerned that North Korea is farther along with its program to develop nuclear warheads for these missiles than was expected. All of this puts Americans at greater risk from an unstable communist dictator who appears to be undeterred by economic sanctions.

Recent Cyberattacks May be Linked to North Korea http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4392-Recent-Cyberattacks-May-be-Linked-to-North-Korea Cyber security experts are uncovering evidence that may link North Korea to the recent worldwide cyberattacks that affected businesses and government entities in 150 countries. South Korean researchers are saying that the attacks are very similar to the backdoor malicious codes often used by North Korea. While no one has categorically stated that North Korea is responsible but it is certainly not being ruled out by anyone. One thing that everyone seems to agree on is that the ransomware attacks did not result in a great deal of money for the attackers so the attacks may have been just malicious and possibly a preparation for more to come.

Study Shows CNN Bias http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4391-Study-Shows-CNN-Bias The prestigious Media Research Center has released the results of a recent 24 hour study of the contents of CNN broadcasting and found what the MRC calls an obsession with President Donald Trump. During the 34 hours studied 13 hours and 27 minutes of broadcast time was devoted to stories about Trump and 92 per cent of the time the reporting was negative. During the 2016 Presidential campaign CNN was often referred to as The Clinton News Network because of its clear bias in only doing reports on Hillary that were positive and helpful to her campaign.

Russian Diplomats Turning Up Dead http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4390-Russian-Diplomats-Turning-Up-Dead Over the last two years, ten Russian officials have died. Many on foreign soil. The US Government has been observing these deaths and keeping track of them. Taking it out of the realm of conspiracy theories, James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, said, “Well, this obviously has been a curious pattern.” "We have had difficulty, though, in actually generating an evidentiary trail that could equate convincingly and compellingly in a court of law a direct connection between certain figures that have been eliminated who apparently ran afoul of Putin." By attributing the deaths to Putin, Clapper reinforces the idea that Putin is a murderer and needs to be dealt with accordingly.

Campus Insanity http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4389-Campus-Insanity At the University of New Hampshire, white students wore sombreros and ponchos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. At least two students were offended. This is “the normalization of racist behavior” according to the student group, “All Eyes on UNH.” “What’s the point of wearing a poncho? If you’re not Mexican, it’s not your holiday,” student Danique Montique exclaimed. When asked what holiday would be appropriate for a white person to celebrate, Montique couldn’t say. “That’s stuff for you white people to figure out. I don’t f*(^&#g know! Cinco de Mayo is not your holiday,” she again declared. “You’re perpetuating the stereotype that Mexicans drink and wear ponchos for a living. That’s what you’re doing, and you also have to keep in mind the racial tension that’s happening right now where your president claims that Mexicans only come here, drink, and steal your jobs.”

Comey Records Interaction With Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4388-Comey-Records-Interaction-With-Trump A news report out says that the former FBI Director was asked by President Trump to let the Flynn investigation go. “I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to a memo written up by Comey shortly after the interaction. Is this evidence that President Trump tried to influence an investigation? This is how it’s being played by the media, Democrats, and increasingly uncomfortable Republicans. Representative Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is demanding all “memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings” of the meeting. Mr. Trump bragged in the campaign how skilled he was in business. But he’s not turning out to be much of a match for experienced Deep State operatives.

Assassinate Assad http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4387-Assassinate-Assad Yoav Galant, an Israeli government minister, is calling for the assassination of Syria’s Bashar Assad. "The reality in which people are executed in Syria, being hit deliberately by chemical weapons, their bodies being burned, something we haven’t seen in 70 years. In my view, we are crossing a red line. And in my view, the time has come to assassinate Assad. It’s as simple as that,” said Galant. Galant did not speculate what the consequences of removing Assad would be. The region has been plagued with turmoil and murder since the United States began removing dictators. As bad as Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were, they kept the various factions in their countries under control. If Assad had called for the assassination of an Israeli leader, it would be an international crisis.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4386-What-Could-Possibly-Go-Wrong? We’re learning who is going to be managing the next financial crisis. Yale School of Management raised $10 million “to expand the Yale Program on Financial Stability and launch the ‘Crisis-Response Project.’” The project’s goal is “to improve the quality of decision making by governments and central banks in financial crises.” The project’s advisory board is staffed with many of the same people who gave us the last crisis. Notables include Timothy Geithner, Ben Bernanke, and Hank Paulson. Also on the advisory board is Kenneth Rogoff who is writing prolifically on why government should ban cash. Rather than looking how central bank manipulation of the money supply distorts the business cycle, these people will be looking to use central banks to increase regulation of the markets. It won’t end well.

Boom Phase of the Business Cycle http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4385-Boom-Phase-of-the-Business-Cycle Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, is out with a list of positive things in the economy since Trump became President. Adams is giving too much credit to Mr. Trump. The economy isn’t improving because of Mr. Trump or his predecessor Mr. Obama. Presidents actually don’t have a lot of power to improve the economy. They can reduce regulations which lighten the burden of government overreach. And presidents can veto congressional legislation which often strangles the economy. The economy is improving because of the Federal Reserve. Since the end of 2006, the M2 money supply has increased from $7 trillion to $13.2 trillion at the end of 2016. The economy is in the boom phase of the business cycle.

Will Delivery Robots be Banned in San Francisco? http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4384-Will-Delivery-Robots-be-Banned-in-San-Francisco? Tech savvy San Francisco is proposing legislation to ban delivery robots. San Francisco Supervisor Norman Yee says the robots might not be safe. “Our streets and our sidewalks are made for people, not robots.” Yee asks whether the elderly, children or those with disabilities will be able to move out of the robot’s way as it rolls down the sidewalk. The San Francisco Supervisor also wonders if delivery robots will take away jobs. But this is fear mongering and central planning. Where technology, such as robots, replace human labor, it increases productivity and makes more products available to the market.

Sourcing the Russian Hacking Allegation http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4383-Sourcing-the-Russian-Hacking-Allegation Americans have been told that the Russians hacked the Democrat National Committee computers and somehow influenced the outcome of the 2016 election. Yet the only source for this information is a company called CrowdStrike and confident assertions by the FBI. The FBI was never given access to the DNC’s computer systems to make its own investigation. Instead the FBI relied on Crowdstrike to say that the Russians had hacked the DNC’s computers. The Russian influence narrative has been picked up by Washington politicians. But to date nobody has seen the evidence.

Gold And Silver Tax Break In Arizona http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4381-Gold-And-Silver-Tax-Break-In-Arizona Common sense is taking hold in Arizona’s state legislature. Taxpayers who have gains or losses on sales of gold and silver will no longer have to report this on their state tax returns. Speaking in support of the legislation, former Representative RonPaul said, “We ought not to tax money, and that’s a good idea. It makes no sense to tax money.”

When converting gold and silver back to paper money, taxpayers often end up with a gain that is more to do with the devaluation of the dollar than with an actual gain in actual purchasing power. State Representative Mark Finchem said, “What the IRS has figured out at the federal level is to target inflation as a gain. They call it capital gains.”

But only 0.2% resulted in arrests, it says and, of these, an even smaller percentage were charged.” International Director of Cage, Rabbani, believes the legislation “is not stopping terrorists entering the UK, but as a tool to build up a huge data bank on thousands of UK citizens.”

The company received $115 million in state and federal tax subsidies and $91 million in federal loan guarantees. A total of $206 million in subsidies. The company is blaming stiff competition from Chinese solar panel makers. Others in the industry think higher tariffs on Chinese solar panel imports would help stabilize the US market. “China now has managed to circumvent and violate existing trade defense measures in several ways and again incited a ruinous price

race to the bottom, destroying U.S. manufacturing jobs.” However, government money led the industry to over extend itself. When cheaper Chinese solar panels came into the market, subsidized manufacturers in the US could not compete. Government money distorts sound decision making and leads to malinvestment.

Campaign Promise http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4375-Campaign-Promise During the presidential campaign, candidate Trump promised the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that the US “will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem.” Now President Trump appears to be re-thinking his promise. Secretary of State Tillerson said that Trump "wants to put a lot of effort into seeing if we cannot advance a peace initiative

between Israel and Palestine...the President is being very careful to understand how such a decision [moving the embassy] would impact a peace process." Trump’s hesitation has infuriated one of his biggest supporters, pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Adelson’s newspaper, The Las Vegas Review-Journal, was the only major paper to endorse Trump. Adelson gave $5 million to Trump’s inaugural committee. Axios reports, “the Las Vegas billionaire doesn’t buy the argument that the embassy move should be contingent on the peace process.”

Deep State Goes For Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4374-Deep-State-Goes-For-Trump The Washington Post reported that sensitive information was shared with Russia’s Foreign Minister and the Russian Ambassador to the US during a Oval Office meeting last week. The information supposedly had to do with an Islamic terror threat using laptop computers on airplanes. The Washington Post quotes unnamed senior officials and former senior officials. The National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster denied that President Trump revealed any classified information. "At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly."

Democrats in Congress are elated that their Russia investigation has new legs and have promised to run with this as long as they can. “Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives need a briefing from the National Security Adviser and the directors of our nation’s intelligence agencies to get to the bottom of these allegations, and if there are audio recordings of this meeting, Congress needs to obtain them immediately.” The intelligence community is out to get Trump.

DNC Sued for Failing to Pay Minimum Wage to its Employees http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4373-DNC-Sued-for-Failing-to-Pay-Minimum-Wage-to-its-Employees In an ironic twist, the Democratic National Committee which was the champion of the $15.00 per hour minimum wage in the recent Presidential campaign is defending a class action suit by former employees. The suit claims that some workers were forced to put in 80-90 hours per week for a flat salary of $3,000 per month which means they were barely paid above the minimum wage for the first forty hours each week, and received no overtime pay as required by law for the hours worked over the forty per week limit.

The DNC claimed it could not afford overtime pay despite the millions raised during the campaign. The DNC stands by the provision in its 2016 party platform that calls on private companies to be required to pay $15.00 per hour minimum wage. However, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren wants the minimum wage to be $22.00 per hour. Of course, apparently none of that will apply to the DNC.

Tim Allen has been an outspoken critic of the Hollywood leftist elite and although did not support Donald Trump in the Republican primaries he attended the Trump inauguration.

Indications are that the viewers are correct because the Hollywood leftists have a long history of taking anyone who does not support that strict liberal party line.

Cyber Attack Continues to Expand http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4370-Cyber-Attack-Continues-to-Expand The massive cyberattack that started last Friday has continued and expanded with over 100,000 organizations in over 150 countries now affected. Organizations in the United States have now been affected as was feared, but so far on a limited basis. No particular source of the attacks has been identified, and multiple sources are still suspected.

It is also clear that the malware being used originated in the United States, apparently with the National Security Agency. If that is in fact the case then the information was probably leaked by someone inside the U.S. government, and that is a federal crime and possibly even rises to the level of treason. This will be the case if some foreign nation or group like ISIS is using this to extort money and/or damage the interests of the United States.

Marines Set to Abandon "Every Man a Rifleman" http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4365-Marines-Set-to-Abandon-"Every-Man-a-Rifleman" The Marine Corps Times is rightly upset that the Marines are thinking about not requiring all personnel to go through boot camp and qualify every year at the rifle and pistol range. The "Every Marine a Rifleman" has saved many lives when in war a cook’s camp or headquarters battalion is overrun. With every Marine trained to use a rifle effectively, cooks and clerks have been able to defend themselves. Now, some are insisting that to attract and keep tech savvy cyber-warriors, the Marines need to allow them to avoid boot camp and annual rifle training just like they do for Marine band musicians. If they do, they will be a huge difference between "real Marines" and people who simply wear the uniform but can’t fight. As a former Marine F-4 Pilot, I was very glad I had full combat training before flight training in case I got shot down over Vietnam. Let them hire tech people as civilian contractors, but don’t dumb down the real meaning of being a Marine for the sake of retention. In the same sense, here’s a great story about baseball coach John Scolinos about how you don’t change the size of home plate to accommodate people who can’t pitch well. He ends up relating it to what is happening in modern society and education. It’s a great read.

Private Property Confiscation In Germany http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4362-Private-Property-Confiscation-In-Germany Private property rights in Hamburg Germany are under assault by government authorities. More than two million migrants have surged into Germany and are overwhelming the supply of available housing. A shortage of housing has been building for years with rent control laws so strict that construction firms would be unable to recover the cost of construction. To solve the self inflicted housing shortage, the Hamburg government is now seizing vacant property. Some commercial properties have been seized since 2015 and converted into housing. Now residential properties are being seized and renovated to house migrants. The costs of renovating the properties are being charged to the owners of the properties. In a throwback to East Germany’s Stasi spy agency, Greens and Socialists have created a hotline and website so “local residents can report vacant properties.” So far nobody in Hamburg has challenged the constitutionality of the law.

No Privacy For Drivers In California http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4361-No-Privacy-For-Drivers-In-California Private companies can go ahead and keep scanning and recording the license plates of parked cars in California. A bill in the state senate would have given owners of cars the right to cover their license plates when parked, failed in a committee vote. Automated license plate reader companies “are collecting massive amounts of data on innocent people’s driving patterns and selling it for profit,” according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The information is used by law enforcement, financial lenders, insurers, and collections agencies. More worrisome is that the software might be programmed to reveal “real time alerts about a driver’s whereabouts.”

Healthcare http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4360-Healthcare Over at Bloomberg, economist Tyler Cowen makes good observations about the political situation regarding Obamacare and Trumpcare. But Cowen leaves out any free market solution. America needs more doctors, surgeons, and nurses to provide competitive health care services. And more people competing for those services. Government restrictions on the health care industry keep prices high and prevents a free market for health care services from developing. SECRET SPYING ON CONGRESS Senator Rand Paul is asking the White House to investigate whether the Obama Administration ever surveilled or unmasked him. In an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Paul revealed that two reporters have told him that the Obama Administration did look at Paul’s private information. Senator Paul went on to say that another Senator was also surveilled including his phone calls. “It’s about your own government spying on the opposition party, that would be enormous if true,” he said.If the Obama Administration did surveil political opponents it would be a constitutional crisis. Bigger than the Russian allegations.

Loyalty http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4359-Loyalty Let’s hope the reports of President Trump asking for personal loyalty from former FBI Director Comey are fake news. In the American system of government, appointed and elected leaders swear to follow the Constitution. Not a person. The president is not a king or a dictator. He does not make the laws. He follows and enforces the laws. Our leaders are to set aside their personal interests and follow the laws. Requiring personal loyalty above loyalty to the Constitution would collapse yet another pillar of American strength and put us on the road to third world status.

Restaurants Getting Hit By Increased Minimum Wage http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4357-Restaurants-Getting-Hit-By-Increased-Minimum-Wage At least 60 restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area have closed in part due to the increased minimum wage. Tipped employees are not exempt from the new minimum wage laws. Rising labor costs have eaten away at restaurant’s profitability. Instead of helping people make more money, people are losing their jobs. Minimum wage laws make it more difficult for low-skilled workers to find work. Forced to pay above market prices for labor, businesses will hire only the best people who add the most value. In turn, people who are willing to work are crowded out and don’t have the opportunity to learn skills to make themselves more marketable.

The Trump Tax And Spending Plan http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4356-The-Trump-Tax-And-Spending-Plan The Trump tax plan may be a fiscal calamity in the making. Along with new spending on infrastructure and defense, ten trillion dollars of deficits are projected over the next ten years. It’s thought that rosy projections of wage and GDP growth will close the gap. However, when money is borrowed out of the economy to fund the deficit, it crowds out the private sector. This money would be used by businesses and entrepreneurs to create goods and services to benefit consumers and grow the economy. Government spending gets directed towards special interests, politicians and their cronies and into projects that the private sector would never fund.

The captains of the ships observed of their passengers, "Only 12 are laborers, ten or 12 are mechanics, while 48 are gentlemen, and there are no women." Carving out a living in the wilderness required hard manual labor. These English gentleman and their man servants did not know how to work. Apparently they were not willing to learn either.

We’re getting a clearer picture of what he meant. The President hinted at ending daily press briefings and replacing them with written responses to ensure accuracy. Closing the press briefing room and ending daily press briefings would not only save the government money but it would be a major step towards fulfilling another campaign promise to drain the Washington swamp. A White House focused on governing as opposed to combating the media is good for all Americans.

Governor Brown is following the trend already established in liberal sanctuary cities like San Francisco, Las Angeles, and Sacramento to use taxpayer money from American citizens to defend people who have broken our laws, by entering our country illegally, sometimes on more than one occasion. The fact that many illegals also commit crimes against the legal citizens of California is apparently of no concern to Jerry Brown and his cohorts.

Second Wave of Cyberattacks Beginning http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4349-Second-Wave-of-Cyberattacks-Beginning According to some British cyber experts, the massive cyberattack that occurred last Friday that affected governments, businesses, and hospitals around the world is just the beginning. A second wave of attacks is already occurring and they are coming from multiple unknown sources and will be mostly keenly be felt early in the work week as computers in many locations are turned back on. The attacks are using malware apparently stolen from inside the United States government, specifically the National Security Agency. The stolen malware was leaked to WikiLeaks, and is now in the hands of other sources. So far, the attacks have all occurred outside of the United States, but that is expected to change in the next few days and federal agencies are doing what they can to prepare.

From the beginning very few viewers seemed to find any humor in the show and ratings tumbled. Despite this ABC renewed the show for a second season in order to continue to push the network’s far left political agenda. However, when pressure on sponsors continued to increase and ratings continued to fall the show was finally cancelled.

Obamacare Prices to Rise Again http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4347-Obamacare-Prices-to-Rise-Again Just days after major insurance companies Aetna and Humana announced they were pulling out of the Obamacare exchanges entirely, state insurance commissioners in some states have already started receiving requests for premium price hikes next year. Virginia and Maryland have reported requests for premium increases from 10% to over 50%.

These requests are coming amid the increasing loss of competition among the remaining companies. At least 40% of the counties in the country will have only one insurance company remaining in the markets, and some will have none at all, leaving consumers with virtually no options for purchasing health insurance under Obamacare that democrats continue to defend.

The fact that no evidence of any such collusion has been found does not matter.

Trump Approval Pulls Back Near Record Low http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4344-Trump-Approval-Pulls-Back-Near-Record-Low President Donald Trump's approval rating saw a small improvement after the missile strike in Syria last month but has pulled back near a record low in a new Quinnipiac University national poll. The poll found that 36 percent of voters approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president, while 58 percent disapprove. Trump's approval rose to 40 percent in a poll conducted shortly after the attack on Syria but is now back near the record low of 35 percent seen in a poll released in early April Quinnipiac noted Trump is losing support among independents voters as well as white voters with no college degree and white men, which are important parts of his base. "There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. The poll also found that 58 percent of voters say Trump's first 100 days in office have been "mainly a failure," while 38 percent say they have been "mainly a success." The Quinnipiac survey of 1,078 voters was conducted May 4th through 9th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Hyundai And Kia Ordered To Recall 240,000 CarsSouth Korea's transport ministry has ordered automakers Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp. to recall 240,000 cars after a whistle-blower raised concerns about defects in twelve models made by the two automakers.The whistle-blower is a former Hyundai employee with 26 years at the company, who tipped off the government about 32 defects in the vehicles. The recall covers five of these defects.


The recall is the first compulsory recall ordered by South Korea's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport for Hyundai and its affiliate Kia, after the two companies refused to act voluntarilyThe automakers had previously argued that the defects, including in parking brake warning lights, posed no danger to driving safety. The ministry has also asked prosecutors in Seoul to investigate whether the automakers allegedly covered up the five flaws that affect 12 models. The models subject to the recall include Hyundai's Avante compact, i30 hatchback, Sonata midsize sedan and Sante Fe crossover as well as the luxury Genesis G80 and EQ900 sedans, and Kia's Mohave, Sorento SUVs and the Carnival minivan.These vehicles were found to have problems with their vacuum pipes, fuel hoses, parking brake light problems and other faulty componentsIn response to the recall order, Hyundai and Kia said in a joint statement that they accept the decision and will take all necessary steps to repair or replace the faulty parts in the affected models as early as possible.The automakers are required to announce their recall plans through media and notify the owners of affected vehicles of their planned recalls within the next thirty days.Hyundai and Kia together form the world's fifth-largest car maker by sales. The companies are targeting sales of a combined 8.25 million vehicles in 2017, up from the 7.9 million units they sold globally last year.

The Commerce Department said retail sales climbed by 0.4 percent in April compared to economist estimates for 0.6 percent growth. However, the report also said retail sales inched up by a revised 0.1 percent in March versus the 0.2 percent drop originally reported. The increase in retail sales was partly due to a rebound in auto sales, with sales by motor vehicle and parts dealers rising by 0.7 percent in March after falling by 0.5 percent in February. Excluding the rebound in auto sales, retail sales rose by 0.3 percent in April, matching the increase seen in the previous month as well as economist estimates. Sales by non-store retailers, electronics and appliance stores, and building materials and supplies dealers saw significant growth. However, the upside was limited by decreases in sales by clothing and accessories stores, furniture and home furnishings stores, and general merchandise stores. Closely watched core retail sales, which exclude autos, gasoline, building materials and food service, edged up by 0.2 percent in April after climbing by 0.7 percent in March. The Commerce Department said total retail sales in April were up by 4.5 percent compared to the same month a year ago.

Paul Craig Roberts Wrong on North Korea http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4341-Paul-Craig-Roberts-Wrong-on-North-Korea Sometimes Robert’s anti-globalism leads him to suspect that every enemy the globalists highlight must be false, which is isn’t true. He said,

"The North Korean "crisis" is a Washington orchestration... N. Korea has not attacked or invaded anyone in 64 years." Wrong. North Korea has attacked S. Korea or the US every couple of years. They shot dead a US Army major on the DMZ, shelled an Island city in SK, captured a US spy ship (USS Pueblo), and sunk various SK vessels. "N. Korea lacks the military strength to attack any country, such as South Korea and Japan, that is protected by the US." Wrong again. NK has a huge military and is very capable of invading SK. He says that, "China would not permit N. Korea to start a war." Well, not yet, but only because they aren’t ready yet, but NK is being preserved as the trigger event for WWIII. He thinks the entire NK controversy is designed by Washington to excuse putting in the THAAD ABM system into SK, close to China’s border. Sadly, neither does he think Russia or China are eventual enemies of the US

The unusual plea was issued Thursday in the cartel’s closely-watched monthly report, which found that global markets are still suffering from too much supply. The report said that balancing the market would “require the collective efforts of all oil producers” and should be done “not only for the benefit of the individual countries, but also for the general prosperity of the world economy.” It looks like OPEC is openly calling for the United States to participate in a Global Price fixing scheme.

This coupled with the fact that in the past four weeks new unemployment benefit claims have dropped to the lowest level since 1974. This is despite the fact the labor is force is much larger now. This is being seen by many economists as a sign that the recovery of the U.S. economy is speeding up.

The latest incident occurred when a Russian jet fighter flew within 20 feet of an American naval P-8A Poseidon surveillance aircraft operating over international airspace in the Black Sea.

While it is not unusual for Russian and American aircraft and even ships to interact in international waters and airspace, but an encounter this close is considered highly dangerous and provocative. When looked at from the perspective of Russian fighters and bombers flying into U.S. airspace near Alaska and Russian spy ships off of our coasts, it becomes obvious that Putin is testing America and its new President, Donald Trump.

Democrats Trying to Force Appointment of Special Prosecutor http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4331-Democrats-Trying-to-Force-Appointment-of-Special-Prosecutor Democrats in Congress are planning to use a discharge petition to bypass Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and force a vote on appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the alleged Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russian government to somehow steal the presidential election from Hillary Clinton. They would only need a hand full of Republican House and Senate members to join them to get it passed.

However, there are several potential problems with this. First, special federal prosecutors are usually appointed when someone has either been charged with a federal crime or is about to be. There is absolutely no evidence at this point that there was any collusion, must less that a crime was committed. In addition, the President can fire the FBI director at any time for any reason. Again, there is no crime.

Chaffetz Requests Justice Department Investigation of Comey Firing http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4329-Chaffetz-Requests-Justice-Department-Investigation-of-Comey-Firing House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has asked the Justice Department to investigate President Donald Trump's abrupt dismissal of FBI Director James Comey. In a letter sent to Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Wednesday, Chaffetz requested an expansion of an investigation of actions by the Justice Department and the FBI in advance of last year's elections. "Previously I asked Inspector General Horowitz to review the FBI's actions in advance of the 2016 election," Chaffetz said in a statement.

"Today I sent a letter urging IG Horowitz to expand the scope of his review to include the decision to fire Director Comey," he added. "I look forward to receiving the IG's findings." The request from Chaffetz comes after Trump's surprise decision to fire Comey was revealed by the White House on Tuesday. Trump cited recommendations from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who based their recommendation in part on Comey's decision to publicize the results of the FBI's investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The move has generated considerable criticism, however, as it comes as Comey was leading an investigation of potential ties between Russia and Trump's presidential campaign. Democrats have argued that Comey's firing reinforces the need for a special prosecutor to investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, although Republican leaders have rejected their demands.

​Workers Took Down a statue of Jefferson Davis in New Orleans http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4328-​Workers-Took-Down-a-statue-of-Jefferson-Davis-in-New-Orleans Early Thursday-152 Years and One Day After the Confederate President was Captured by Union Forces workers removed the 6-foot statue from its 12-foot pedestal and put it on a trailer to be moved to a city warehouse, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Police kept supporters and opponents of the move apart. The office of Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued a statement saying the city had begun removing statues erected decades after the Civil War by the "Cult of the Lost Cause," which the office calls a "movement recognized across the South as celebrating and promoting white supremacy.

Davis lived in New Orleans for years after the war and died there in 1889. In an earlier statement, the mayor said it was an "affront" to "literally put the Confederacy on a pedestal" in the city's public places, CNN reports. Statues of Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and PGT Beauregard are also due to be removed, the AP reports. Another monument, commemorating whites who tried to topple a biracial post-Civil War government, came down last month . The city council voted to remove the monuments in 2015, but more than a year of legal wrangling followed. Orleans Parish judge Kern Reese ruled that the removal of the huge bronze statue of Beauregard on horseback can proceed, saying, "This has gone on an inordinate amount of time.

Military Tribunals Being Used to Stifle Dissent in Venezuela http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4324-Military-Tribunals-Being-Used-to-Stifle-Dissent-in-Venezuela The situation in the socialist nation continues to deteriorate rapidly with people starving to death as the economy collapses. People have taken to the streets by the thousands to protest the actions of the government and call for change. Some have been killed by government soldiers and hundreds have been arrested.

Activists are now expressing increasing concern that many of those arrested are being placed in military prisons and tried by military tribunals, where they don’t have access to regular attorneys and are being charged with inciting rebellion and face up to 30 years in prison. Many of them are young students, and human rights activists are reporting that as many as 250 tribunals are being conducted every week.

DUI Hit and Run Suspect Deported 15 Times http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4323-DUI-Hit-and-Run-Suspect-Deported-15-Times A suspect in San Diego who has been arrested for DUI and a hit and run that caused serious injuries to a six year old boy had been reportedly deported 15 times. Six other family members were also injured in the crash. The suspect, a Mexican citizen named Constantino Banda-Acosta is a 38 year old who was mostly recently deported on January 18th of this year.

This was the 15th time he has been deported since 2002 which means he was deported an average of once a year yet always managed to sneak back in through the porous California southern border. The boy and his family were returning from a day trip to Disneyland.

Another Blow to Obamacare as Aetna Pulls Out http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4322-Another-Blow-to-Obamacare-as-Aetna-Pulls-Out In another blow to the failing Obamacare Aetna Insurance has announced that it is pulling out of all of the Obamacare exchanges next year. In 2016 Aetna was selling plans in 15 states and suffering severe financial losses. This led to its decision to stop selling plans through the exchanges at all. According to HHS Secretary Tom Price “Aetna’s decision to completely withdraw from the Obamacare exchanges adds to the mountain of evidence that Obamacare has failed the American people”

Despite this overwhelming evidence that Obamacare cannot work Democrats continue to defend the broken law and impose it on the American people.

Dems Threatening to Shut down Senate over Comey Firing http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4321-Dems-Threatening-to-Shut-down-Senate-over-Comey-Firing Democrats in the United States Senate are threatening to use an obscure rule to essentially shut down the Senate if they don’t get a Special prosecutor appointed to investigate alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. They are claiming that the firing of James Comey by Trump is an attempt to stop the FBI’s investigation into the matter. The fact that even Senator Diane Feinstein has stated that there is no evidence of such collusion.

Commentators are pointing out that many of these same Senators would have applauded the firing if had been done by President Hillary Clinton.

He further admitted that if the same Executive Order had been issued by a President Hillary Clinton the organization would not be challenging it because it would be considered Constitutional if it came from anyone other than Trump. He said that Trump’s language during the campaign is the only thing that they base the Constitutional claim on.

FBI Director James Comey Dismissed By Trump http://www.libertynewsdaily.com/blog-4318-FBI-Director-James-Comey-Dismissed-By-Trump In one of the most stunning developments in the Trump administration's first 110 days in power, FBI Director James Comey was abruptly dismissed on Tuesday.

The administration attributed the decision to fire Comey to recommendations from the Justice Department that included disapproval of the way the FBI chief handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

A statement from the White House said President Donald Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

A search for a new permanent FBI Director will begin immediately, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement.

The move has generated considerable criticism, however, as it comes as Comey was leading an investigation of potential ties between Russia and Trump's presidential campaign.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued that Comey's firing reinforces the need for a special prosecutor to investigate the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.

"If an independent special prosecutor is appointed, there still can be some faith that we can get to the bottom of this," Schumer told reporters. "If not, everyone will suspect a cover-up."

Trump fired back at Schumer on Twitter, noting that the Democratic leader previously indicated he did not have confidence in Comey.

"The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that
