    A deadly mosquito-borne pandemic poses a greater threat to humankind than global war, billionaire Bill Gates warns. In a hard-hitting new documentary, the world's richest man said a killer bug could wipe out 10 million people without warning. Footage seen by MailOnline, set to be aired next week, shows the philanthropist's worries towards the danger of disease-carrying mosquitos. An outbreak could mimic the damage of the Ebola epidemic in late 2014 or the burden of that of the deadly SARS outbreak in 2003, experts worry. Climate change warming the planet is allowing for mosquitos to spread from their usual habitats,...
  • The Daily 202: Eight ways Trump got rolled in his first budget negotiation

    Now that the language has posted, here are the eight most notable areas Trump caved in his first big spending negotiation: . Administration officials have insisted they already have the statutory authority to start building the wall under a 2006 law. This prevents such an end run. The $1.5 billion for border security is also half as much as the White House requested. Additionally, there are no cuts in funding to sanctuary cities, something a federal judge said last week would be required for the Justice Department to follow through on its threats. And there is also no money for...

    While it's commonly known by now that the new spending bill that Congress and the Trump administration agreed to funds mostly Democratic priorities, and doesn't fund President Trump's border wall, what's not widely known is that the new legislation goes even farther than this. Not only does it not fund the border wall, but it prevents the government from constructing a border wall with any funds.

    The budget deal to keep the government funded through September agreed upon by congressional leaders would continue funding the refugee resettlement program. An agreement on the omnibus budget was reached by leaders from both parties Sunday, as a government shutdown looms on Friday. The proposed spending agreement includes no money to construct the president’s border wall, and continues funding Planned Parenthood. [….] The bill would include a total of $3 billion towards migration and refugee assistance, which is roughly the same that was spent in Fiscal Year 2016. It would also include $50 million towards the emergency refugee and migration...

    The Republican base that supported Trump are being betrayed on a scale unimaginable but so very predictable. It is perfectly clear now, the cheap labor, open borders oligarchy in the Republican Party are backstabbing President Trump and never intended to allow any of his agenda supported by the Republican Base and his voters to go forward. They want to give the majority back to the Democratic Party and all in the name of their cheap labor, open borders benefactors, the oligarchy and K-Street. Now the same Republicans have given 1.1 TRILLION dollars to the Democratic agenda, but NOTHING for us,...
  • Lawmakers strike budget deal to fund government through Sept. 30 (We are being screwed over again)

    Congressional leaders have reached a deal to fund the government through the rest of the government's fiscal year, a congressional aide has confirmed to the Washington Examiner. Republican and Democratic lawmakers agreed to a $1.070 trillion package to fund the government through September 30. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., praised the budget deal as a "good agreement for the American people" that "takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table." "The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren't used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders, and increases investments in programs that the middle-class relies on,...

The first episode premiered last night and right from its opening scene, in which the groundbreaking theoretical physicist has extra-marital sex with his office assistant, we know we’re probably not going to be subjected to long-winded digressions on the theory of relativity.

    Here's what Trump said: “Leave it the way it is. North Carolina, what they’re going through with all the business that’s leaving, all of the strife — and this is on both sides. Leave it the way it is.” He continued, “There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic — I mean, the economic punishment that they’re taking.” (1) Where exactly, did Trump stand up for the rights of male perverts and trannies to take a whiz or go #2 alongside with or do worse things to...

    Many former Donald Trump supporters have turned on the President after his decision to retaliate against the Assad regime for its chemical weapons attack. Nigel Farage, Milo Yiannopoulos Katie Hopkins, right-wing vlogger Paul Joseph Watson, Ukip leader Paul Nuttall and Ukip donor Arron Banks are among the Trump supporters who have been disappointed by their hero. Mr Farage said: "I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying 'where will it all end?'

Establishment." "It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump. No shame, Mr. President. Almost everyone succumbs to the D.C.

Trump posted to Twitter, “The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!”

    Speaking with the Washington Post over the weekend, President-elect Donald Trump promised that every American will have health insurance under his Obamacare replacement plan, which is set to be introduced in the openings months of his presidency. Though he didn’t provide the Post with many details about his plan, Trump said the plan will provide “less expensive and much better” coverage to Americans that Obamacare has “in a much simplified form.” “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump told the Post. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it....

    Just minutes after Donald Trump came under fire for retweeting a white nationalist on Friday, another Twitter user pointed out that the Republican presidential front-runner's latest campaign ad features images of Soviet soldiers. [screen capture at source] The images were included in a 40-second video posted to Trump's Facebook page Friday and accompanied by the following caption: "Our veterans are being treated worse than illegal immigrants. If Trump becomes president, that will end immediately. Our veterans will be proud and respected again. #‎MakeAmericaGreatAgain." Several of the medals worn by the veterans depicted in the video are engraved with a hammer...

    A man in China purchased a first-class plane ticket - and used it to eat a year's worth of free meals at the VIP lounge at Xi'an International Airport. The frequent diner purchased a first-class, fully refundable ticket aboard Eastern China Airline. He used the ticket to gain access to the airport's VIP lounge, where high-rolling travelers dine for free.... The man re-booked his first-class ticket over and over again and kept the gravy train rolling. Eastern China Airlines officials only recently figured out the man's scheme after noticing his single ticket being re-booked 300 times over one year....

    His name is Morgan, but it hasn’t always been his name. What it was before doesn’t legally matter any longer. What does matter, to us, is the concentric circles by which “Morgan” arrived…came to be. Morgan doesn’t know any better. Many metaphors of consciousness can be applied, but for Morgan, your arguments on his condition fall outside of his realm of concern. Morgan is Morgan, and what Morgan does in the present is all that matters. What might have been his reality, to you, before “the incident,” is simply pabulum to Morgan. To Morgan, you are children trying to complete...

    The following has been re-posted due to a critical error noted by an observant Freeper. We’ve all heard the term “evil genius,” maybe even used it a few times. This moniker is generally used to refer to infamous political figures in history who were able to amass great personal power, acquire or expand empires, or fundamentally alter the course of history while callously and cynically disregarding the incalculable pain, suffering, dislocation, economic destruction, and myriad forms of devastation left in the wake of their pursuit of glory or some utopian dream.

    The original story was about a controversial package in a school setting, but it was quickly claimed to be a homemade clock. If so, the clock itself (not the presentation) might be cool as the White House said. If not, the world may be propping up a plagiarist who flaunted the piece of crap in an intentionally controversial way (suppositions). This video challenges that the clock was homemade by showing a nearly identical package being prepared in about twenty seconds (screws and simple fasteners were excluded for brevity here).
