    02/22/2017 9:52:04 AM PST · by grundle - ABC News - Good MorningAmerica ^ | February 22, 2017 | Karma Allen
    As of early Wednesday morning, a crowdfunding campaign started by Muslim activists had raised over $70,000 in an effort to help repair a vandalized Jewish cemetery near St. Louis, Missouri. "Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration against the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery," read the crowdfunding campaign's website, which was spearheaded by Muslim-American activists Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi. "We also extend our deepest condolences to all those who have been affected and to the Jewish community at large." The effort comes after more than 170 headstones were damaged late Sunday...

    To win the election in Germany, the SPD & Greens want to move to change the law regarding voting rights. Essentially, they want to give the refugees a right to vote. They need not be an EU citizen nor do they need to pay taxes. The mere right to vote is you happen to be there at the time. Meanwhile, the SPD has now taken the lead in polls from Merkel. Martin Schulz, the German Social Democrats’ candidate for federal elections in September, is the very person who in the EU wants to federalize Europe and this scheme is intended...

    A Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputy has a message for the community after his bike was taken from his home earlier this month by a stranded 19-year-old. The deputy took to his Facebook page to express his concerns for her safety. “A young lady found my bicycle and she was out here alone in the dark and decided she needed it for a ride home. So she took my bike,” said Bowden. Bowden said he didn’t know it was missing until it was returned to his grandmother’s house next door with this note, apologizing for taking it without permission. The 19-year-old...

Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan took $100,000 Dr. Ali al-Attar, money that — according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group — was “funneled through a company with ‘impossible’-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.” All three of the brothers are now under a criminal investigation. Imran Awan provided IT services for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the disgraced Democrat who was forced to resign as...

Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program. Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama...

A deal could be announced as early as this week, sources told Reuters. Shares of Restaurant Brands were slightly positive on Monday, while shares of Popeyes were slightly negative.

In time, it’s likely to bite them in the rump. As everyone but those who are still mourning Hillary Clinton’s defeat are aware, the 9th Circuit is overruled so often by the Supreme Court that even bookies don’t like the odds. So how will those on the left react when a Supreme Court, even one that is equally...

Elizabeth Johnston, aka the “Activist Mommy,” says there is a big disconnect between Zuckerberg’s recent call for a global “inclusive community” and Facebook’s “censorship of Christians.” “They are muzzling me and my biblical message while Mark Zuckerberg claims that FB is unbiased,” she stated in a news release.

    In a new sign that Venezuela’s financial crisis is morphing dangerously into a humanitarian one, a new nationwide survey shows that in the past year nearly 75 percent of the population lost an average of 19 pounds for lack of food. The extreme poor said they dropped even more weight than that. The 2016 Living Conditions Survey (Encovi, for its name in Spanish), conducted among 6,500 families, also found that as many as 32.5 percent eat only once or twice a day — the figure was 11.3 just a year ago. In all, 82 percent of the nation's households live...

    Private contractors at the Oroville Dam have had to fire some of their workforce because of issues ranging from positive drug tests to violating the state's Department of Water Resources' social media policy. There has also been turnover because of unqualified workers. Private contractors hired to work on the dam have to vet their own employees, according to DWR spokesman Chris Orrock, who noted that no state employees have been let go because of these reasons. Crews are being brought in as needed, as space is tight, DWR Acting Director Bill Croyle said.

The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.

    In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches. The change means that far more officials will be searching through...

    Zealandia – a new continent submerged in the southwest Pacific – is a step closer to being recognised, the authors of a new scientific paper claim. A paper published in GSA Today, the journal of the Geological Society of America, contends that the vast, continuous expanse of continental crust, which centres on New Zealand, is distinct enough to constitute a separate continent. Despite the obvious question of how something so large could be previously undiscovered, the paper’s authors argue that even “the large and the obvious in natural science can be overlooked”. Zealandia covers nearly 5m square km (1.9m sq...

And that was before he even took a single question! It was a return for Trump to what worked for him during the course of the 2016 campaign: A circuslike...

While the social media company appears to be treading water after a rough past few months, which includes a number of high-level staff departures and a sinking valuation, Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey sees his platform’s influence in society remaining largely the same, if not growing. “A lot of the same patterns we’ve seen during the Iranian Green Revolution and the Arab Spring,” Dorsey said Wednesday at...

    I. The Main Stream Media’s Victory Lap The Deep State has done its dirty work, getting rid of Michael Flynn, the now-former national security adviser to President Trump. And so the MSM, having taken direction—even dictation—from the Deep State, is moving in for the kill. The ultimate target, of course, is Trump himself. The Washington Post, which has long hated Republicans, and Trump in particular, is leading the charge. On February 15, seven of the eight top stories on its online home page were anti-Flynn, anti-Trump—and, of course, pro-MSM. Let’s take a closer look: The Post seemed particularly proud of...
