  • Oops, Trump almost had a $125 billion border wall

    CNN Politics ^ | June 21, 2018 | Lauren Fox
    House Republicans had to scramble late Wednesday night to fix a drafting error in a conservative immigration bill that would have accidentally given President Donald Trump $125 billion for border security, including his wall instead of the $25 billion intended. The error, which happens occasionally during legislative drafting accidentally allocated $25 billion per year for five years rather than allocating the $25 billion over a five-year period. The error, first reported by Politico, was just one of the last-minute hiccups that's unfolded around the House's immigration votes, which will occur later today and aren't likely to pass. House Freedom Caucus...

    Full Title: FBI: Hundreds of Bureau Agents Took Bribes from CNN, NY Times, NBC News and More; Wray Looks the Other Way to Protect Media Partners Access to the FBI is for sale. Concert tickets. Expensive private dinners. NFL tickets. Parties on booze cruises. Discounts on travel. FBI insiders said more than 60 agents in D.C. alone have been nailed for taking gifts from the news media. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said earlier this week about 50 FBI agents took 300 free gifts from news media. However, Horowitz failed to stipulate that number is ONLY in Washington D.C. which covers...
  • Is Our World Getting Better and Better?

    And now, some good news. Did you know that global poverty is going down? Did you know that global literacy is going up? Did you know that violent crime statistics are dropping and IQs are rising? Did you know that child labor and exploitation are decreasing and human rights are increasing? Our headlines are full of social division, political gridlock, international disorder, increasing militarization, climatic disasters and other problems. Watch the news for half an hour, and it certainly appears that world conditions are getting worse and worse. But some intelligent people argue that since news coverage inherently focuses on...
  • Open Borders Are Not Pro-Life And The Unborn Are Not Illegal Aliens

    Flopping Aces ^ | 06-21-18 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Having ignored an earlier border deal that would have made the issue moot, Democrats have stooped to a new low by comparing the separation of children from their illegal alien parents as required by current law to the mass murder of the unborn, including the harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. That is what Charles C. Camosy, a board member of Democrats for Life, an oxymoron if there ever was one, does in the June 16 New York Times opinion section in a piece with the Orwellian title “You Can’t Be Pro-Life And Against Immigrant Children: In standing by...
  • Killing dogs for meat illegal, rules S. Korean court

    MSN ^ | June 21, 2018 | Park Chan-kyong, Agence France Presse
    A South Korean court has ruled the killing of dogs for meat is illegal, in a landmark decision that animal rights activists said Thursday could pave the way to outlawing eating canines. The meat has long been a part of South Korean cuisine, with about one million dogs believed to be eaten annually. But consumption has declined as South Koreans increasingly embrace the idea of dogs as man's best friend rather than livestock, with the practice now something of a taboo among younger generations and pressure from activists mounting....

    How many innocent politicians, individuals, non Americans have been locked away because they didn’t want to play in the games of corruption?

Where is the Liberty, Justice, and Freedom for the Men/Women who Stand for Truth? People and stories you should know and research to understand what Deep State is, and why President John F.

    It’s well past time that the masses started taking the prog-left at their word! In a dotage most discernible to all, Peter Henry Fonda’s name has been left in the mud; his 49-year-old ‘Easy Rider’ days image too far behind in the rearview mirror to matter anymore. In real life, at age 78, Fonda is the young hippie biker who became the old hippie with a much different decrepit set of wheels. Peter Henry Fonda, (the name with which he signed his threatening Tweet saying Americans upset with the White House’s separation of illegal-immigrant families should “rip Barron Trump from...

    I generally am an upbeat guy, always trying to look on the bright side... I generally try to stay optimistic, empathetic, give everyone the benefit of the doubt and am generally quick to forgive when I'm slighted, etc., etc. But my recent visit to California, where I was forced, among other indignities, to endure the prattle of a queer communist bastard (my sister's best friend) explaining how "...we just have to tax the rich until there ARE no more rich... it's just what we have to do," at the Olive Garden--when I was paying the tab--has caused me to ruminate...

    My withered brain | 21 June 2018 | Me
    Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site. Trump heaps praise on Drudge ReportSo, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump. I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past. Of course, I may also be crazy...
  • Illegal Immigrant Separated From Child With Down Syndrome, Detained As Smuggling Witness

    Daily Caller ^ | June 20, 2018 | Grace Carr
    Following outrage that border officials separated a mother from her child with Down syndrome, U.S. officials set the record straight by stating Wednesday that the family was separated because the mother might be a criminal smuggler. “This smuggler has a criminal history including a flight, escape, aiding and abetting making it important that we prosecute,” the Customs and Border Patrol statement reads. Mexico’s Foreign Affairs Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso raised questions at a news conference Tuesday, pointing to the grave mistreatment that families must endure because of the federal government’s zero-tolerance policy. The family was not separated because the mother...

    In their latest attempt to swing this fall’s election toward the democrats, the left now wants us to focus on “the children.” They haven’t really thought this through. Liberals the world over should work hard to avoid any debate that significantly involves the lives and wellbeing of children. Most anyone armed with even the slightest bit of the truth when it comes to liberalism and “the children” can easily quiet the left in virtually any debate that involves children or the family… …If we can’t trust liberals to instruct children properly on who is a male and who is a...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 6/21/2018 | J Hines
    Could a soda machine stop a large-caliber bullet and save your life? Another question to ponder with us plinkers that have nothing to do. I'm sure most of us normal people don’t think of this but if there were a hail of bullets coming their way. They probably would not think twice to get behind it for some cover. Which brings us back to the question. Again, Youtuber Edwin Sarikissian tries out some different calibers on a vending machine just to see if it is bulletproof. The results were very impressive. This metal box stood up to .500 Magnum and...

    Who could of possibly seen this coming? President Trump signed an EO today that essentially allows families to be detained together in order to stop the issue of separating children from parents. This, we were assured, was the primary concern of the most virtuous among us who have driven a news cycle of hysteria the last month. Furthermore, this was a situation so dire they said, so terrible, that the President needed to simply ignore the law and stop separations on his own So what happens when he actually does what they want?

Those companies have been hiring for a bevy of high-paying gigs over the past six months, according to data provided to MONEY by job search site Ladders. Since the start of the year, Deloitte Digital, Amazon and Cynet Systems have each sought out to fill more than 5,500 positions with starting salaries of $100,000 or more. And they all have something in common: They’re linked to the tech industry, which Ladders...
