BREAKING: Trump Says He Will Delay Deportations of Illegal Aliens For Two Weeks at the Request of Democrats

President Trump said on Monday evening in a pair of tweets that next week ICE will begin the process of removing millions illegal aliens who have illicitly entered the US.

Now it appears he is walking back on that promise because on Saturday Trump announced he will be delaying the illegal immigration removal process for two weeks at the request of Democrats to see if Congress will work together on a solution to fix the asylum loopholes.

Seriously??

Boy; I hate being right all the time.

Iran Did Not Target A Manned US Navy Plane in Their Airspace When They Hit The Drone, Trump Says He ‘Appreciates That They Didn’t Do That’

President Donald Trump told reporters on Saturday that there was an American Boeing P-8 airplane with 38 people on board that had entered Iranian airspace when they targeted the drone — and he appreciates that they did not target it.

According to a statement from Aerospace Force head Amir Ali Hajzadeh, the Iranians could have shot down the manned Navy plane, but decided not to.

Bill Maher Warns the Crazy Party: “Concentration Camps” and “Reparations” a Losing Formula for 2020

The Democrat Party continues to show on a daily basis that they are nothing buy a radical bunch of crazed lunatics determined to bring down the United States of America.

The latest nonsense promoted by Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez comparing holding facilities for illegal aliens to the Nazi Holocaust showcases the dangerous idiocy coming from the modern day Democrat Party.

On Friday night leftist leader Bill Maher warned Democrats that “concentration camps” and “reparations” is NOT a winning strategy for 2020.
Neither is the Green New Deal… Proving once again, these people are insane.

Real Salt, Celtic Salt and Himalayan Salt

By Dr. Mark Sircus

Do you know the difference between refined salt and unrefined salt?

We all know what regular white salt looks like—and we mistakenly think it is real salt when it is not. The fact is that refined white salt, such as commercial table salt is bad, very bad stuff. Unrefined natural salt on the other hand is good, very good stuff providing many health benefits...

ACTING DHS CHIEF 'SABOTAGED' ICE RAIDS BY LEAKING PLAN TO WASHINGTON POST

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration's plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum - prompting the administration to cancel the raids - many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump's longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.

Well, now that question appears to have been answered by the Washington Examiner: The acting head of DHS, Kevin McAleenan, reportedly leaked the details of the operation (he traveled alongside the WaPo reporter who broke the story earlier this week) in what sources described ass a deliberate attempt to sabotage the raids.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope that President Trump fires the guy, and as quickly as humanly possible; I cannot believe that someone with a true understanding of the financial/human cost of an unprotected border, and the costs to the states already horribly impacted by this, would want it to stay unprotected, and allow more flows of illegal immigrants to stay in this country.

"Intelligent vetting", which would have caused this man to never have been chosen for this position in the first place, has been a real plague on the Trump Administration, and those around him, who believe in his Presidency, need to rally round him right now.

The Dementocrats are applauding the delay, because of how this happened; apparently, none of them care whatsoever about what this deluge of people with zero education; no English; no capabilities more than manual labor, which will be gone an less than a decade, and no real desire to learn, will injure the US economically, because they are unable to work, except on jobs which no longer exist.

The main thrust of the Democrats' desire to see the flow of illegal immigrants increase, is to give them the opportunity to vote in the next elections, to skewer the vote in more Republican-dominated areas of the country, and turn states (marginally) from red to blue.

What we are going to see, as a result of this, will be more crime; more violence against those people who were born here; and a complete fracturing of the economy, due to the financial burdens of those who cannot, or will not work. If you don't believe me, take a look at 21st century England, Germany, and Sweden, as pretty good indicators of what is - and continuing to be - grave issues in this country, until all illegal immigration is stopped.

How to Rebel Against Corporate Food (and Why You Should)

By Daisy Luther

The term “corporate food” is pretty disturbing if you stop to think about it. Corporations aren’t usually known for their strong ethics or for placing people above profit. And yet, somehow, more than 70% of food in America is processed and almost two-thirds of the food available comes from only 4% of the farms. This means that a very high percentage of the food consumed in America was somehow provided by a corporation whose main goal is profit, not nutrition. (Read more about the dangers of this type of consolidation.)

NATIONAL EMERGENCY ALERTS POTENTIALLY VULNERABLE TO SPOOFING

SOURCE: HOMELANDSECURITYNEWSWIRE.COM
On 3 October 2018, cell phones across the United States received a text message labeled “Presidential Alert.” It was the first trial run for a new national alert system, developed by several U.S. government agencies as a way to warn as many people across the United States as possible if a disaster was imminent. Now, a new study raises a red flag around these alerts—namely, that such emergency alerts authorized by the President of the United States can, theoretically, be spoofed.

On 3 October 2018, cell phones across the United States received a text message labeled “Presidential Alert.” The message read: “THISIS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

It’s snowing in Yellowstone—on the first day of summer.

People have long been enchanted by this land, and it’s easy to see why: Nowhere on Earth has such a stunning display of wildlife, matched with an incredible assortment of geologic activity in the form of hot springs and geysers. It really is, as it was referred to in its early days, a wonderland.

As of Friday, it’s officially summer in Yellowstone, and all manner of animals are out, breeding, eating grass, hunting, running, lounging, menacing, cowering, playing, rejoicing. Yellowstone is alive. And guess what? It’s snowing!

Opinion: Why war with Iran is bad for Trump — and America

US President Donald Trump has called off military strikes against Iran according to The New York Times, in response to Iran’s shooting of a US drone inside the country's airspace over the coastal province of Hormozgan on Thursday. The decision to avoid escalating the standoff with Iran in the Persian Gulf suggests that Washington is well aware that “Iran has many options available to raise the cost for the US and its friends in the region,” in the event of a military confrontation.

The following is an opinion piece -- written by Aaron David Miller and Richard Sokolsky -- published by National Public Radio (NPR) on the recent developments:

Read THIS Before Cheering the Next War

Truth Is the First Casualty of War
Over two thousand years ago, the Greek writer Aeschylus said:

In war, truth is the first casualty.

That quote could be read to mean that – once a war starts – then truth goes out the window …

In reality, however, wars are often planned for political reasons (having to do with money, resources or other goals which may have nothing to do with directly protecting one’s country or people) and then false intelligence is created to “justify” the start of the war.

Britain’s MI5 intelligence service explained about the claimed justifications for the Iraq War:

The intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

U.S. college students currently working on their degree are in for an unpleasant surprise when negotiating their first salaries.

That’s because, as Statista's Felix Richter details, according to a new study conducted by Clever, undergraduate students in the United States are overestimating what they’re worth by a varying degree, depending on the major. Comparing average expected salaries to median actual salaries as reported in PayScale’s College Salary Report, Clever reveals which majors are particularly prone to unrealistic expectations.

“Bushy-tailed and bright-eyed, the average Generation Z undergraduate expects to make $57,964 one year out of college, while the national median salary is $47,000 for recent grads with bachelor degrees who have between zero and five years of on-the-job experience,” Clever writes, concluding that many students have “seriously unrealistic” expectations for their early career salaries.

I thought I was having an acid flashback to Doctor Strangelove. Geraldo himself seemed a bit nonplussed and embarrassed by Mr. Hannity’s tantrum, but his attempts to calm down the raving anchorman only ramped up the hysteria. One wondered: are there any adult producers off-screen on that network?

Judge in Sandy Hook defamation lawsuits says Infowars readers have posted death threats on the site after its founder Alex Jones claimed she was 'part of a conspiracy to destroy him'

A Connecticut judge overseeing lawsuits filed by bereaved families of the Sandy Hook shooting massacre against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones revealed that she has received death threats from Jones' fans in posts on his Infowars website.

Judge Barbara Bellis wrote in a court filing Friday that the FBI and Connecticut State Police had contacted her about the threats, however she did not release further details about what the messages specifically entailed.

Israel analysts: Weak US attack on Iran could spark retaliation against Israel

Israeli military analysts are afraid that a weak US attack on Iran could provoke an Iranian attack on Israeli interests.

Currently, Israel is worried about ongoing US-Iranian tensions and is preparing for any possible escalation which could affect its own interests.

Israeli daily Ynet yesterday reported Israeli security officials as warning that US President Donald Trump might order a limited “surgical assault” to quell Iran’s provocations. However, these officials worry that, in return, Iran might attack Israeli interests via one of its proxies in the region.

‘Israel does not want peace’, former Mossad chief says

The former chief of Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad, Shabtai Shavit, has said that Israel does not want peace and that, if it had, it would have made peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA) long ago.

Shavit gave his remarks to Israeli daily Maariv, reiterating that if Israel wanted peace it would have discussed it in economic and infrastructure terms that serve the interests of both parties, Arab 48 reported yesterday.

However, Shavit said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not see the PA as a negotiating partner and therefore refuses to develop relations with the authority. “Do you know any other head of an Israeli government who did not talk with the Palestinians?” he asked.

Shavit also claimed that Netanyahu stopped speaking to the PA under pressure from the Israeli right-wing, who he claimed “would lynch him in the city centre” if he opened discussions today.

Supreme Court: 40-Foot World War I Memorial Cross Stays

A 40-foot World War I Memorial known as the Peace Cross can remain on public property according to a ruling by the Supreme Court Thursday.

The ruling is a big blow to the cult of atheism and a victory for both Christians and the American history this cross represents.

The Peace Cross, located in Bladensburg, Maryland, features a plaque at its base naming 49 local residents who died during World War I. Erected 100 years ago in 1919 and completed in 1925, the base also displays the words “valor,” “endurance,” “courage,” and “devotion.”

This, in the eyes of three residents, was offensive, so they joined a group representing atheists and agnostics in a lawsuit to have it removed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am an atheist, and was unaware of any "cult."

I agree with the Supreme Court on this one. This idea of tearing down symbols because they offend someone ignores the fact that these symbols are important to people. They have meaning. And therefore these symbols, whether Cross, Star of David, Star and Crescent, etc. should be left alone unless they are used to foster violence (such as the inquisition) .

I think that the "cult of atheism" is made up of people who are actually insecure about their atheism. Deep down, they are not really sure, and it is from this insecurity that their opposition to religious symbols arises.

I'll make a deal with you all.. I will respect the symbols of your beliefs if you respect my non-symbols of my non-belief. Then we all have a BBQ and get along! :)

US ADDS SAUDI ARABIA TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING BLACKLIST

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The United States yesterday added Saudi Arabia to a blacklist of countries that do not play a sufficient role in fighting human trafficking.

According to the US’ annual report on human trafficking, Saudi Arabia has failed to prevent large scale violations committed against its foreign labour force, Lebanese newspaper the Daily Star reported.

The US also accused Cuba of human trafficking under the guise of a program to send doctors abroad, pointing out that similar action has been taken against 22 countries.

US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said of the countries named in the report: “If you don’t stand up to trafficking, America will stand up to you.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if true (and I would not bet against it), why does the US continue to sell weapons to the Saudis, if they hold human life so cheaply, as to endorse and allow human trafficking in their country?!?

IF I were the Butcher of Yemen (I mean, Prince Mohammed bin Salman), I would think that this would be a pretty damned ugly accusation, and at least try to make it appear that my government is "trying to do something constructive". to combat it; and yes, some times, "changing the optics" can make whatever a country is doing, look "reasonable."

But nothing; not even a response to the charges, is what we get with Saudi Arabia here.

And why?!?

Because the Prince understands that absolutely nothing will stand in the way of those weapons he continues to order and buy from the United States, with which to continue his genocide in Yemen.

I can almost hear someone putting this question to President Trump, and him responding with a "NOT sorry!" in response.

After all, war is always good for business, in President Trump's perspective, because it means record revenues for our weaponry designers and manufacturers.

But President Trump, at what moral costs to this country, do these sales pose?!?

I see countless articles, talking about the mounting violence of American adolescents against other kids; against their teachers; family; and police officers.

Is some of this violence due to kids being given SSRI medications, or trying like heck to get off these medications? Absolutely, but we have to look at another factor here.

But I think that one of the real reasons for this violence, and one which is generally treated as though it were Kryptonite, is that kids see people in very high positions of national power, murdering other people in war, and believe that if those heads of state ordering these wars, can get away scott-free with their assassinations, why shouldn't these kids get off scott-free as well as well for their actions?!?

They generally don't have a sophisticated understanding about what absolute, unrestrained power means, and what is done, frequently, to maintain it, like the (most likely signed off upon by the Prince) assassination of Adnan Kashoggi, in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey, for example.

Iran goes for “maximum counter-pressure”

Sooner or later the US “maximum pressure” on Iran would inevitably be met by “maximum counter-pressure”. Sparks are ominously bound to fly.

For the past few days, intelligence circles across Eurasia had been prodding Tehran to consider a quite straightforward scenario. There would be no need to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if Quds Force commander, General Qasem Soleimani, the ultimate Pentagon bête noire, explained in detail, on global media, that Washington simply does not have the military capacity to keep the Strait open.

As I previously reported, shutting down the Strait of Hormuz would destroy the American economy by detonating the $1.2 quadrillion derivatives market; and that would collapse the world banking system, crushing the world’s $80 trillion GDP and causing an unprecedented depression.

Russia will help Iran with oil, banking if payment channel not launched

Russia has signaled its willingness to secure Iran's interests in the oil and banking sectors if Europe's non-dollar mechanism aimed at facilitating trade with the Islamic Republic is not launched.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday that Moscow is ready to help Iran export its crude and ease restrictions on its banking system if Europe fails to launch its mechanism, officially called the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX), with Tehran.

The three European signatories to the 2015 nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), unveiled late in January the long-awaited direct non-dollar payment mechanism meant to safeguard their trade ties with Tehran following the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal and in the face of the "toughest ever" sanctions imposed by the United States against the Islamic Republic.

Israel lobby to take frosh Congressional Dems to Israel, some refuse trip

As is common practice during the summer after the election of a new House of Representatives, a group of freshman Congress members will take an all-expenses-paid trip to Israel in August. The list of Democrats currently stands at twenty-three, with two more indicating that they are trying to fit the trip into their schedules.

The trips will be sponsored by the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF), the nonprofit arm of the powerful lobbying organization, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

The goal of the trips is to promote American support for Israel despite Israel’s violations of human rights, international law, U.S. law, and discrimination against Christians and others. Lawmakers are currently considering legislation that will give Israel a minimum of $38 billion over the next 10 years. This amounts to $7,230 per minute, or about $23,000 per Jewish Israeli family of four.

AN INVITATION YOU CAN’T REFUSE: HOW REP. STENY HOYER MAKES SURE AIPAC’S ISRAEL JUNKET IS WELL ATTENDED

MARY JO KILROY was elected to Congress at the height of the financial crisis, in November 2008, to represent Columbus, Ohio, and the surrounding area. She landed a seat on the Financial Services Committee, where she had a chance to address the foreclosure crisis ripping through her state, as well as to push for tougher regulation of Wall Street.

As she learned to navigate Washington during her first term, one of the more unexpected pressures she faced was about a foreign trip. It wasn’t just any congressional sojourn, but rather a trip to Israel organized by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and sponsored by the nonprofit arm of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. “I would say that I was ‘strongly encouraged’ to take the Steny Hoyer AIPAC trip. ‘Everyone’ is going except you,” recalled Kilroy, who resisted the pressure, telling AIPAC that she didn’t want to go on a one-sided tour of the region.

200 Israeli Nuclear Weapons Targeted against Iran

The decision by the United States to exit the Iranian nuclear agreement – signed in 2015 by Teheran with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany – causes a situation of extreme danger not only in the Middle East.

To understand the implications of such decision, taken under pressure by Israel that describes the agreement as “the surrender of the West to the axis of evil led by Iran”, we must start from a precise fact: Israel has the Bomb, not Iran.

For over fifty years, Israel has been producing nuclear weapons at the Dimona plant, built with the help mainly of France and the United States. It is not subject to inspections because Israel, the only nuclear power in the Middle East, does not adhere to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Iran signed fifty years ago.

MORSI 'KILLED' BY EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT, SON SAYS

'HE WAS MURDERED'
Morsi's death was mourned by many people around the world, including in Turkey, where mosques held special prayers on Tuesday, while leaders in Malaysia and Qatar were among those offering tributes.

However, the reaction has been largely muted in many capitals.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a key ally of Morsi, said this week that the Egyptian government should be tried in international courts for the death of the former president.

"Mohamed Morsi flailed on the courtroom floor for 20 minutes and the authorities did not help him. This is why I say Morsi did not die, he was murdered," Erdogan told supporters on Wednesday at an election rally in Istanbul.

"We, as Turkey, will follow this issue and do everything possible for Egypt to be tried in international courts for Morsi's death," he said, calling on the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to take action towards this end.

United States Cyber Command on Thursday reportedly launched an operation against an Iranian spy group with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, despite President Donald Trump's last-minute scrapping of a direct military strike, former intelligence officials said in a Yahoo News report.

The Iranian group is believed to have supported the limpet mine attacks against two tanker ships earlier last week, which resulted in the US increasing its military posture against the country. The group reportedly tracked and targeted both military and civilian vessels sailing through the Strait of Hormuz.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My real concern this weekend, is that Israel will conjure something up something absolutely wicked, from which the US government and military will not be able to walk away.

IF President Trump thinks that such a thing is impossible, because he and Netanyahu are such BFFs, I would strongly caution him to think again; this wouldn't be the first time Israel tried a stunt like the attack on the USS Liberty, which Israel tried to blame on Egypt.


New Evidence Proves Israel Attacked USS Liberty With Orders to Kill 294 Americans

Fresh evidence presented in an exclusive Al Jazeera investigation into the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 Americans proves the incident was not a mistake. Since 1967 the ‘official story‘ has been that Israel simply misidentified the American ship as Egyptian for several hours. Israel apologized to the United States and for several decades we’ve been led to believe that this could be the only explanation for why Israeli jets and torpedo boats would launch rockets, missiles and torpedoes at an American target for more than two hours.

A new documentary called ‘The Day Israel Attacked America” airing on Al Jazeera was produced and directed by award winning British film maker Richard Belfield. Thanks to the audio evidence obtained by Belfield, it is finally possible to prove the survivors of the attack on the USS Liberty were right all along. The survivors have always been extremely confident that Israel’s intentions were to sink that ship and kill everyone on board so Egypt could be blamed for the tragedy. Why? To convince President Lyndon Johnson (and the American public) that we needed to declare war on Egypt. This is the definition of a ‘false flag‘. (can you say 9/11?)"

Trump EPA Approves “Emergency” Use of Bee-killing Pesticide On 13.9 Million Acres For The Next 4-6 Years

By Arjun Walia

It’s no secret that pesticides have been killing bees in extreme numbers, especially in North America. Many other countries have imposed bans and restrictions on the pesticides that are sprayed in Canada and America.

Since 2006, when the term “Colony Collapse Disorder” or CCD was coined in the U.S., commercial beekeepers have reported extraordinary losses averaging 29 to 45 percent per year. Such losses are unprecedented — more than double what is considered normal...

FBI warns of foreign actors trying to 'sow discord' in the wake of mass shootings

Houses of worship remain a vulnerable target for attacks and foreign entities could be looking to "sow discord" using the internet, an FBI official warned at a security event with law enforcement officials and faith leaders this week.

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, urged faith leaders to have a share information with U.S. authorities and to have a "strategic perspective" in thinking about security.

"You need to be thinking about this for the next six months. You need to be thinking about this for the next year. What are the consequences of going to conflict with Iran and Hezbollah, those actors of interest here," the official said.

"You need to be thinking about that right now," the official said.

Trump Accused Of 'Rape' One Day After Refusing to Go to War With Iran

President Donald Trump was accused of "rape" by a feminist journo one day after he refused to go to war with Iran.

Despite massive pressure from neocons in his administration to attack Iran after they shot down a US drone over the Gulf of Oman, Trump elected not to carry out a strike Thursday evening because he said the military's planned attack would have killed 150 people, which he said was not "proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone."
