    Halfway through the flight, the officers took off Omar Blas Olvera’s handcuffs. He asked why. They had entered Mexican territory, an immigration agent told him. It was July 26, 2017. After they landed in Mexico City, he looked out the window and saw the airport’s signs in Spanish. Just a few months earlier, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto welcomed 135 deported men and women at Mexico City's airport. He touted Somos Mexicanos (We Are Mexican), a federal program to help repatriated nationals. “You’re not alone. Don’t feel abandoned. The doors to this house will always be open,” Mr. Peña Nieto...

    I’m sick and tired of these pseudo-adults wringing their hands, playing politics, and acting like impartial observers as our kids are gunned down.  Arguments, discussions, conversations, legislation, all dangerous delays that leave our kids as sitting ducks while these people play the role of grown-up, while they “talk”. It brings to mind the movie Deceived.  Adrienne Saunders, thinks she’s found a fake necklace, gives it to her daughter’s friend, Carol Gingold.  But the necklace is real and Adrienne has to get it back, her daughter’s life depends on it.  She goes to the Gringold’s home: Adrienne: I really do apologize, I...
  • Under Trump, Family Planning Funds Could Go To Groups That Oppose Contraception

    National Public Radio ^ | May 23, 2017 | Sarah McCammon
    A newly-unveiled Trump administration proposal would not just block groups like Planned Parenthood from receiving Title X funds. It also could pave the way for a host of previously ineligible organizations — some of whom oppose contraception — to receive funds through the federal government's family planning program. While introducing President Trump at a fundraiser on Tuesday for her anti-abortion-rights group, Marjorie Dannenfelser painted a picture of what the country might look like had abortion opponents and other social conservatives not rallied around Trump in 2016. "We would be grieving the loss of support for women and children as pregnancy...

    Motto: In a world of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength-George Orwell A sixty year old Swedish man was accused of hate-speech, an Orwellian term that feels like home in Sweden (and other progressive EU countries by the way) nowadays, after he made a factually accurate statement about Somali immigrants having low IQ. Even if his statement was technically correct and undebatable, it is evident you can’t tell the truth in Sweden anymore, and now this thought-criminal is facing up to 2 years in jail after a female...

    Detailing the specifics of waste or even graft that has transpired inside the military-industrial-security complex is a task that could get an investigator killed. The biggest cash cow is wrapped in the flag and exists within a culture where mere scrutiny lays open charges of being unpatriotic. Munitions merchants maintain a special relationship with Generals and Admirals who promote, protect or facilitate the continuous development and deployment of weapon systems. The revolving door of influence rewards compromised legislatures or bureaucrats with executive payoffs when they leave government service. Senator Enzi Seeks Timeline for Ongoing Pentagon Audit, shows concern that this...

    OK, I know what you're thinking - you're obviously skeptical of a proposal like this coming from a Conservative who claims to respect the 2nd Amendment. Bear with me, though. I could throw out stats like actual numbers trying to tie gun ownership to violent crime. I could trot out the CDC's own study regarding the use of guns for crime versus self defense. How about the lies that the gun grabbers like to use? Or maybe the many areas where the government broke down prior to and during the Parkland shooting? Even the Santa Fe shooter, while not obvious at first,...

    IWB ^ | Ruby Henley
    The Alternative News Media community is deeply divided at this time, and I find it extremely sad that this division has occurred due to a PsyOp from within. Most of you are familiar with the QAnon movement consisting of true Patriots, who have been led by QAnon the Pied Piper. The YouTube community became totally fixated on the false prophet, QAnon. I cannot begin to count the number of YouTubers, who reported on each “drop” of information the fake entity revealed. He/she/them made endless errors, such as Hillary Clinton had been arrested and was wearing an ankle monitor, and it...

    By Bruce Buckshot Hemming, 2017, 320 pages, paperback. Over the last three decades, attacks by large predators against humans have been skyrocketing in North America. It is not just a matter of reporting. Attacks by bears, mountain lions, wolves, and coyotes, have become expected, where they used to be rare or denied altogether. Full disclosure: Hemming cites some of my work in the book. Bruce Hemming does an excellent job in summing up the increases in large predator attacks. He offers a commonsense explanation as to why they are happening, why they are under reported, and how they can...

    Something funny is happening with the much-hyped “blue wave” on the way to the fall midterms. That wave of Democratic candidates that is supposed to sweep away the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives? The one that the press and pundits have been predicting for months? One would almost think the steady narrative of a blue wave is an attempt at psychological warfare by the mainstream media and the Left in hopes of depressing Republican donors and voters into thinking the outcome is a foregone conclusion. But that narrative is completely detached from reality. The numbers now tell...

The two experts who are part of the prosecution's case were questioned about their methods by the defense. One of them worked for the Oregon State Police in the initial shooting investigation...

    Part 1: George Papadopoulos and Josef Mifsud Inaction. It's been rattling around my head for a long time. Why was there no action? Why didn't obama do something? barack obama was warned about Russian meddling in 2014. The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials. As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as...

    Stefan Halper is officially missing. And he has been for a long time. The shocking revelation adds more intrigue to an already mysterious and illicit story unfolding inside the FBI. Snip~~ It would appear someone with top access in the FBI likely tipped Halper off in the fall of 2017 to go underground, or perhaps something worse is at play. “He went underground,” one federal law enforcement source said. “We don’t think he is dead but he might be playing dead.”

    Black Caucus DEM Al Green bragged on Tuesday on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal” that if his party takes the House in November, Trump’s impeachment would be a good likelihood. Green dixit: “This is not something the Constitution has bestowed upon leadership. It’s something every member has the right and privilege of doing. I am not sure that there will be members who are going to wait for someone else if that someone else, doesn’t matter who it is, is declining to do it.” Here’s the video with the IQ of 80 speaking to the American voters.

    The Express-News ^ | May 22, 2018 | The Editorial Board
    The question isn’t whether immigrant minors can be humanely held at military bases. It is whether it is humane to inflict circumstances that cause them to be housed there — or anywhere else — at all. It is not. What are these circumstances? They will be detained after being forcibly separated from their parents, who will have been arrested on criminal charges for crossing the border — adding to the trauma from what was already a harrowing trek to come here. This is being done to deter Central Americans from coming because their own countries are unable to protect them...

    YOKOSUKA——The USS Milius, one of the U.S. Navy's most advanced guided missile destroyers, arrived in Japan on Tuesday to reinforce defenses against any ballistic missile attacks by North Korea, or anyone else in East Asia. The warship's arrival at Yokosuka Naval Base comes three weeks before an unprecedented meeting is supposed to take place in Singapore between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The show of force is a reminder of the military pressure that can be brought to bear on North Korea as the United States seeks to press it to abandon its nuclear...

    On Friday, Hillary Clinton delivered her first official message to the Democratic National Convention since losing the Presidential election in 2016, and she had only one message for the gathered, mostly female, officials: you’re not getting rid of me that easy. In what sounded more like a threat than an announcement, Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum that she’s going to be a foundational part of the anti-Trump “resistance,” whether the “resistance” wants her or not. “We have to win back the Congress,” Hillary Clinton said Friday at a DNC event. “I’ll be there with you every step of...
