    The Federalist ^ | 4/24/2018 | Margot Cleveland
    the mainstream media took no notice of last week’s federal court filing that exposes an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign executed during the 2016 presidential election in violation of federal campaign-finance law. That lawsuit, filed last week in a DC district court, summarizes the DNC-Clinton conspiracy and provides detailed evidence from Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings confirming the complaint’s allegations that Democrats undertook an extensive scheme to violate federal campaign limits.......From Bundling To Money Laundering. What Backer discovered, as he explained in an interview, was much worse. There was “extensive evidence in...

    "Hard to believe Obstructionists May vote against Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. The Dems will not approve hundreds of good people, including the Ambassador to Germany. They are maxing out the time on approval process for all, never happened before. Need more Republicans!" Trump tweeted Monday morning. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said earlier Monday that Democrats are playing with fire by not approving Trump's top diplomat. "They have to decide that they want to put the safety and the security and the diplomacy of our country ahead of their own political games, and we're very hopeful that...

    Trump announced Monday he has directed the Department of Homeland Security to block large groups of migrants who have begun to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border and apply for asylum as refugees from Central America. "Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL," Trump tweeted Monday morning. Trump also said negotiations over a new North American Free...

    "We’re not naive in this process. We've seen some steps in the right direction, but we have a long way to go," press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters...."Certainly the goal is dencucleariztion of the peninsula and we're going to continue the maximum pressure campaign until we see concrete actions," Sanders said Monday. "No sanctions will be lifted until we see concrete actions taken by North Korea to denuclearize." Trump blasted the media for claiming his administration has already made concessions to North Korea that could negatively impact U.S. interests. "Fake News NBC just state that we have given up so...

    The leaders of Belgium's ISLAM Party apparently want to turn Belgium into an Islamic State. They call it "Islamist democracy" and have set a target date: 2030. "The program is confusingly simple: replace all the civil and penal codes with sharia law. Period". — French magazine Causeur. "The European capital [Brussels] will be Muslim in twenty years". — Le Figaro. The ISLAM Party knows that demography is on its side. Ahrouch has said, "in 12 years, Brussels will principally be composed of Muslims". In the upcoming Belgian elections, the ISLAM Party is now set to run candidates in 28 municipalities....

    combines 2016 Census data on ethnicity with 2010 data on religion from the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies. It does not include atheism or no religion, and only shows pluralities, meaning the group shown may not be an absolute majority in the county. The county-level data shows intriguing patterns across the US.

    A 61-year-old Louisville, Ky., man was sentenced Friday to life in federal prison for transporting dozens of illegal immigrants in a scorching hot tractor-trailer, after which 10 people were found dead inside the truck last July, according to the Justice Department. U.S. District Judge David A. Ezra of San Antonio sentenced James Matthew Bradley, Jr. to life in prison without parole, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday afternoon. Bradley had faced the death penalty. Shortly after midnight on July 23, San Antonio police responded to a call from the Walmart on Interstate 35 and found the tractor-trailer behind the store....
  • U.S. restrictions for Chinese investment are oppression: China's Foreign Minister

    The move on setting limits for Chinese investment in science and technology, is an act of technological oppression, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Friday. Media reported that the U.S. Treasury Department is considering ways to restrict sensitive Chinese investment in the United States by invoking an emergency power law and declaring some security review reforms for corporate acquisitions. "The move and recent many others expose U.S. hegemonic mentality," said spokesperson Hua Chunying. "It is obvious that the United States has been pushing for trade protectionism in the name of national security by repeatedly setting limits for Chinese trade and investment...

    Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), on Thursday urged policymakers to steer clear of all protectionist measures amid rising trade tensions between the United States and its major trading partners. "Trade restrictions have not been proven helpful and we suspect that they might even dent confidence," Lagarde said at a press conference during the spring meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, adding all countries should "work together to resolve disagreements without using exceptional measures." The spring meetings of the two leading international financial institutions come after the Trump administration recently announced additional tariffs on...

    Breit Bart ^ | 4/20/018 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
    Gentleman’s Quarterly has proposed refashioning contemporary culture by unmooring it from the past, a feat that can be accomplished — in part — by updating lists of required reading. First among these “overrated books” is the Bible, for which the GQ editors reserve some particularly choice epithets.... It is “repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned,” or, in a nutshell, “certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced.” The core of the GQ proposal is the surgical excision of books that serve to keep traditional values alive. As simple as it is straightforward, GQ’s plan follows...

    Trump previewed his new arms sales policy, which is meant to make it much easier for other countries to buy military equipment from U.S. companies. ...“If they're our allies, we are going to help them get this very important, great military equipment. And nobody, nobody makes it like the United States. It's the best in the world by far.” ....to streamline procedures and clarify regulations. “It would be, in some cases, years before orders would take place because of bureaucracy with Department of Defense, State Department,” Trump said Wednesday. “We are short-circuiting, that, it's now going to be a matter...

    North Korea has dropped its demand that the U.S. remove troops from South Korea before it gives up its nuclear weapons, and has said it wants to “denuclearize completely,” according to South Korean President Moon Jae-in. North Korea has cited the 28,500 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea as part of its justification for developing nuclear weapons, and has called for Washington to withdraw those troops if it wanted a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. But Moon told reporters Thursday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has not attached any conditions the U.S. would object to, clearing a path for negotiations...

    President Trump accused California Gov. Jerry Brown of conducting a “charade” by agreeing to send National Guard troops to the border with restrictions on their activity and said the federal government won’t foot the bill for Brown’s move. “Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy ‘up to 400 National Guard Troops’ to do nothing. The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!” Trump tweeted.

    BUTLER, Pa. — A Western Pennsylvania sheriff has banned his department from conducting county sheriff business with any of the corporations that have cut ties with members of the National Rifle Association. Mike Slupe, the chief law enforcement officer in Butler County, released the order April 3, but it hasn't been reported until now. "Though I cannot dictate which companies you utilize in your personal life, I can and am going to dictate which companies the Butler County Sheriff’s Office will not use," Slupe wrote.

    The House voted Wednesday to implement a series of bipartisan changes to the IRS that were billed as customer service improvements. The votes had been planned for weeks to go along with Tax Day, but were given added timeliness with the IRS’ website failure Tuesday just as taxpayers faced the filing deadline. Two bills passed in Wednesday’s votes. One, the 21st Century IRS Act, would overhaul parts of the agency’s cybersecurity and information technology practices. It passed with only three "no" votes, all Republicans. Another, the Taxpayer First Act, which passed unanimously, would set new rules on the agency's interactions...
