Bipartisan Bill Will Keep the NSA Out of Your Inbox

The House of Representatives is considering a bill that would prevent the NSA from conducting warrantless searches through U.S. citizens’ e-mail accounts.

Representatives Tulsi Gabbard (D-HA) and Scott Perry (R-PA) have presented a bill which seeks to “permanently codify protections on Americans’ privacy.” It has been introduced to the House to cement a policy change announced by the NSA in April, ending surveillance of e-mail based on keywords related to foreign targets of spying, unless they were specifically to or from concerned parties. This catch-all form of spying is known as “about” surveillance, and both Gabbard and Perry want to ensure it doesn’t make a comeback.—More…

The continuing pro-life evolution of Donald Trump

The Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) policy is the latest example of President Donald Trump paying more than lip service on pro-life policy, despite doubts many pro-lifers once had.

The policy, spelled out in Executive Order 13798 dated May 4, builds on President Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy, put in place in 1984, which specifies that federal funds for family planning go only to foreign nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that agree not to perform or promote abortions as a method of family planning. Since 1984, “the policy has been enforced by every Republican president and suspended by every Democratic president shortly after being inaugurated,” Melanie Israel notes at the Daily Signal.

PLGHA cranks the principle up a notch, applying it to $8.8 billion in annual global health funding. Trump is strengthening the Mexico City policy by directing “the secretaries of state and health and human services to extend the policy to funds ‘furnished by all departments or agencies,’” she writes.

Chinese Student Who Praised Free Speech in U.S. Condemned by China’s Communist Party

Go Straight To The Fifth Paragraph Of The Latest NYT ‘Bombshell’ On Russia Collusion

The New York Times dropped another “bombshell” report on Russian influence on the 2016 election Wednesday, and once again what is presented as salacious news in the headline and lead is revealed to be anything but midway through the report.

“Months before the election, U.S. spies learned that top Russians had discussed ways to use Donald Trump’s advisers to influence him,” reads the headline blasted by TheNYT in a breaking news email. The story is clearly meant to further the “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative the media has pushed for months, although it’s as yet totally unsubstantiated.—More…

Often-wrong CBO has another disaster prediction about AHCA

It sounds bad. In fact, it sounds terrible. People lose health insurance en masse, markets are destabilized and it hardly touches the deficit. If the Congressional Budget Office was ever right about anything, this would be a disaster:

A bill passed by U.S. House Republicans would cause 23 million people to lose healthcare coverage by 2026 while de-stabilizing health insurance markets in some states and making it hard for sick people to buy insurance, a budget watchdog agency said on Wednesday.

The Congressional Budget Office, a non-partisan group of experts who analyze U.S. legislation, said the bill would reduce federal deficits by $119 billion between 2017 and 2026.

WHAT DO THE LIBERAL’S MEAN WHEN THEY SAY EVIDENCE-BASED’ GUN CONTROL POLICIES?

In his 1993 report on the Gun Control Program to Parliament, Auditor General of Canada Denis Desautels wrote: 27.3 As well, our review of the new regulations indicated that important data, needed to assess the potential benefits and future effectiveness of the regulations, were not available at the time the regulations were drafted.” The Auditor General was referring to Kim Campbell’s gun control regulations in Bill C-17. The Justice Department defended their lack of evidence with this statement: “In any event, the legislation and regulations were driven by clear public interest considerations, which needed to be acted upon despite the absence of precise data.” The Auditor General went on to recommend: “27.50 The Department of Justice should undertake a rigorous evaluation of the gun control program.” They never did.

In 1995, the newly elected Liberal Government also ignored the Auditor General’s sage advice when it rammed its two-billion-dollar gun registration and gun owner licensing regime (Bill C-68) through Parliament, again ‘despite the absence of precise data.’

Robert Mueller is the wrong man to investigate President Trump

Well, the Democrats finally got their special counsel on the Russian 2016 scandal.

Robert Mueller, formerly an FBI director and federal prosecutor, was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate the alleged Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential campaign, and the alleged Trump administration collusion with the Russians.

An appointment was probably a given, since, as always, when the Democrats and the mainstream media kick up a fuss, as they have 24/7 since Trump unexpectedly won the Nov. 8, 2016 election, it is to be expected that weak-kneed Republican officials, including Rosenstein, would eventually cave to their partisan demands. This time, history was made, as the Democrat-MSM propaganda campaign actually started several months before the president was inaugurated.

An “Insider’s” Perspective on the Murder of Seth Rich

I understand what the family of Seth Rich is feeling better than most, as I too lost a close family member to a homicide that went unsolved for five years. Near the five-year anniversary of my uncle’s murder, my family hired a private investigator; it was me. More accurately, it was my PI firm led by me and my partner. Six months later, an arrest was made. The perpetrator was convicted in a jury trial, and is now spending the remainder of his life in prison.

I lived with the pain of my family. I saw it up close, especially with every news update that we gave. I watched my father hold back tears as we discussed the case in private. I saw and at times, was the recipient of his anger and angst, and from other family members as well, as the private life of my uncle was laid bare by the media. Accordingly, I feel I can write with some authority about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich and the publicity surrounding it.

Goddammit! Beyond fed up! Time for talk is OVER!

God forgive me. I was enjoying a rare respite from my work yesterday, when my senses were suddenly assaulted with the news of yet another terrorist slaughter — this time of at least 22, mostly young people and little children, at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

Here we go again!

How many families, how many children, how many brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers need to die in senseless mass murders before the political class will see the light? How much horrible loss will we as a people tolerate before we scream “Enough!” and pick up torches and pitchforks and literally drag them out of their homes? Are we ever going to reach the breaking point where the deadly consequences of their policies that we have to face every day will finally percolate into their incomprehensibly dense psyches? Will they ever be compelled to do what is right?

Barack Hussein Obama: Puppet on a String

James Comey’s stunning televised judgment against prosecuting Hillary Clinton was not a decision to protect the Clinton crime family or Comey’s personal and family involvement with the Clintons over decades. It was a battle tactic designed to protect Barack Hussein Obama - the globalist elite’s presidential puppet on a string.

Barack Obama is not the prime mover of anything - he is a malignant narcissist pawn whose easy smile and sophisticated multi-cultural appearance made him the perfect candidate to dupe America into following him down the path of cultural suicide toward socialism and ultimately the imposition of globalist elite one-world government. Obama is a media construct mentored by his radical Muslim father, radical socialist teacher Saul Alinsky, radical preacher Jeremiah Wright, and black separatist friend Louis Farrakhan. Barack Obama is a pawn of the globalist elites - the perfect con man.

Reality Check: Public Officials Specialize in Fecklessness, Incompetence and Cowardice

Apparently feckless, neutered police are also impacting safety and security in the United Kingdom, and not just on California college campuses. The horrific Manchester bombing at the Arianna Grande concert Monday evening, which killed at least 22 and injured more than 150,  might have been prevented if politically correct fecklessness within government wasn’t so rampant.

Adding to the fecklessness and politics, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said terrorism is “part and parcel” of urban life.

…Good to know given that I live in California, where our officials specialize in fecklessness, incompetence and cowardice.

Witch Craft Failing at Toppling Trump

I put a prayer on you, “I-put-a-spell-on-you-Mr-President Diana Wagman. My prayer is not meant to harm you, but only to keep you and thousands of witches from succeeding at their task of spell-binding, through black magic, the President of the United States of America. 

Prayer is so much more powerful than “A Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him” under each waning crescent moon at midnight, and very much worth it.

People who pray, don’t need itty bitty orange candle stubs when speaking directly to the Almighty.  They don’t have to wait for a waning crescent moon because they can pray any hour, night or day.

Sorghum: health food, sweetener and now, clothing dye

Sorghum has long been a staple food in many parts of the world, but in the U.S., it’s best known as a sweetener and livestock feed. As demand for the grain soars, so does the amount of waste husks. To reduce this waste, scientists report in the journal ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering a new use for it: a wool dye that can add ultraviolet protection and fluorescence properties to clothing.

Sorghum, which looks like pearl couscous, is a hardy, drought-tolerant crop that is gaining popularity as a health food, livestock feed and source of bioethanol. Additionally, scientists are working on transforming the crop’s waste for a range of applications, including food coloring and waste water purification. Building further on the colorant possibilities, Yiqi Yang, Xiuliang Hou and colleagues wanted to see if they could develop a practical clothing dye out of sorghum husks.

Paper test strip could help heart failure patients monitor their condition at home

Contrary to the condition’s name, heart failure doesn’t mean the heart has stopped pumping — it’s just not working at full strength. It can often be managed with medications and lifestyle changes, but its progression needs to be monitored closely. Now scientists have developed a new test strip that could potentially allow patients to do this at home for the first time. Their study appears in the journal ACS Nano.

God tells Johnny Enlow: ‘I am neither Republican nor Democrat,’ and Trump will be fine because I kno

Well now Dan’s lost it, you’re thinking. He thinks he can quote God himself.

Actually it’s Johnny Enlow who tells us he’s heard from the Lord concerning Donald Trump. And Enlow is not the first person to say so that I have quoted extensively, as you’ll recall from my extensive references last summer to Lance Wallnau. By the way, Wallnau was the one saying last summer when no one else believed it that God was raising up Trump to not only win, but to be a wrecking ball against the spirit of political correctness.

Nothing Wallnau prophesied last year has failed to come true.

NGO: U.N. gave China names of rights activists

GENEVA, May 24, 2017 The U.N. human rights office dangerously handed over to China the names of four human rights activists slated to attend a Human Rights Council session, and has a practice of doing so, alleges Geneva-based NGO UN Watch, in a letter of complaint sent today to U.N. human rights chief Zeid Hussein.

The complaint, which cites numerous breaches of the UN Charter and other rules, was filed by UN Watch director Hillel Neuer on the eve of his appearance tomorrow before a U.S. Senate hearing that will assess U.S. policy toward the UNHRC, and the related Office of the High Commissioner.
