Trump administration scores win on immigration enforcement in Texas

The Trump administration has chalked off a win Texas by persuading state and local authorities to perform the functions of federal immigration officials. The administration is seeking similar deals with other jurisdictions to crack down on sanctuary cities.
Under the negotiated agreement, which 18 Texas counties have signed on to, local agents in sheriff’s offices will be trained to check if the people they have in custody may be in violation of US immigration law, and then notify federal authorities of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“There’s no doubt that arresting removable aliens in a jail is safer for the officers, safer for the community and even safer for the alien himself,” Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said.

Since last year, ICE has doubled the number of such agreements with counties in Texas, Reuters reported.

Yet the majority of Texas’ 254 counties do not have similar agreements with the federal government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Federal government needs to do, is to make this more affordable to other counties, so that they will agree to participate.

US-Backed Syrian Rebels Defect To Syrian Government After CIA Program Ends

A small number of U.S.-backed rebels have reportedly defected to the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad following news that President Donald Trump has ended the covert CIA program to arm rebels.

Syrian opposition members stated Saturday that at least four U.S.-backed rebels belonging to the Revolution Commando Army abandoned their posts and defected to Syrian regime forces on Thursday, The Associated Press reports.

My point here is that operational plans to decapitate North Korean nuclear and ICBM capabilities exist and are constantly being revised and refined in light of new intelligence. It’s not the planners’ job to make the geopolitical or ethical calculations that inform such a drastic decision. It’s the planners’ job to make sure a strike ordered by the elected civilian leadership of the nation achieves its goal, i.e. eliminates North Korea’s nuclear and missile delivery capabilities completely.

It’s easy to say nuclear weapons should never be used, but what if conventional weapons can’t do the job, or create greater risks? Would you consider it a good ethical trade-off to wait for millions to die before killing thousands? That’s a political choice, and one that will always be second-guessed or disputed. But making such decisions is the purpose of elected civilian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am really hoping that whatever President Trump decides to do, does not mean that China, North Korea's biggest trading partner, will feel obligated to come to North Korea's defense militarily.

At this point in its history, the US military does not have the weaponry; the manufacturing; the troop strength; or the money to insure a positive outcome to a war against China right now.

'Liberal Arrogance': Budapest Bites Back at Austria's Call for More EU Sanctions

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has reacted fiercely to criticism of Budapest from Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern, who told the media that he supported sanctions against Hungary and Poland for a perceived failure to abide by "European values."

The row began last week, when Kern told the German newspaper Frankfurt Allgemeine Zeitung that EU funding for Hungary and Poland should be cut if they refused to comply with EU rules on asylum seekers and EU criticism of constitutional changes carried out at the national level.

Can Germany Be Made Great Again?

Ever since the start of the deliberately conceived “migrant crisis,” orchestrated by NWO elites, the news out of Germany has been, to say the least, horrific. Right before the eyes of the world, a country is being demographically destroyed through a coercive plan of mass migration. The intended consequences of this – financial strain, widespread crime and property destruction, the breakdown of German culture – will continue to worsen if things are not turned around.

Opposition to the societal destruction within Germany have been harassed and persecuted by the authorities and labeled by the mass media with the usual epithets: “far right,” neo-Nazi, “haters,” and heaven forbid, “separatists.” Because of this and other factors, there has been no mass movement, as of yet, that has coalesce to challenge the German political establishment.

Awards taken from museum where gold lunar module was stolen

An Ohio police chief says a rare, solid-gold replica of the lunar space module wasn't the only item stolen from the Armstrong Air and Space Museum over the weekend.

Wapakoneta (wah-puh-kuh-NEHT'-uh) Chief Russel Hunlock says award medals and presentation coins also disappeared from the same museum display case in late astronaut Neil Armstrong's hometown.

Police responded to an alarm late Friday and discovered someone took the gold replica, which is less than a foot high. Hunlock says evidence indicates multiple people were involved.

A retired NASA agent who previously helped recover valuable stolen moon rocks has said he suspects the thief in this case intends to melt down the replica for the value of the gold rather than trying to sell the collectible.

Australia Weather Bureau Caught Tampering With Climate Numbers

Australian scientists at the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) ordered a review of temperature recording instruments after the government agency was caught tampering with temperature logs in several locations.

Agency officials admit that the problem with instruments recording low temperatures likely happened in several locations throughout Australia, but they refuse to admit to manipulating temperature readings. The BOM located missing logs in Goulburn and the Snow Mountains, both of which are in New South Wales.

Meteorologist Lance Pidgeon watched the 13 degrees Fahrenheit Goulburn recording from July 2 disappear from the bureau’s website. The temperature readings fluctuated briefly and then disappeared from the government’s website.

If U.S. Slows Visa Processing, Moscow Will Reciprocate — Russian Politician

A Russian politician has said Moscow will reciprocate with longer wait times if the U.S. Embassy slows travel visa processing for Russian citizens.

“Obviously, if such a slowdown in [the issuing of] visas takes place, the reasons would have nothing to do with staff cuts. So Russia is ready to take reciprocal diplomatic measures,” Igor Morozov, a member of the Federation Council’s international affairs committee, was cited as saying by the state-run RIA news agency.

“As is customary in diplomatic practice, the period for issuing Russian visas to Americans will also be increased.”

Iran last Thursday inaugurated the Imam Khomeini Space Center which has been described a "turning point" in the country's space activities.

It is a large complex that includes the whole process of preparation, launch, control and guidance of space launch vehicles.

The real reason so many millennials still live with their parents

Recently, a U.S. Census report confirmed something many millennials like me know all too well: As of 2015, one-third of 18- to 34-year-olds still lived at home—beating out all other living arrangements, including cohabitating with a partner or living alone, for the first time.

Older generations like to attribute this to laziness or entitlement, saying we lack ambition or are coddled by our parents—but that’s a clouded argument. There are some lazy kids in every generation, but a third of us? Sorry, but no.

As a millennial who’s in this category, I’m setting the record straight on the real reasons we’re still living at home.

We’re shouldering serious student loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all parents out there whose kids are juniors in high school this fall; please seriously talk with your kids about what jobs which pay well without a college education.

The debt trap in which so many millennials live, thanks to that college education, and the debt burden it brings, is avoidable, but they are going to have to think their way around believing that a college education is "the only way" to get a decent job.

High paying jobs you can get without a college degree

Best jobs you can get without a college degree

17 jobs that don’t require a college degree and pay over $70,000 a year

The old model of a college degree being the only way to get higher paying jobs doesn't make sense in this part of the 21st century. And there are respected on-line colleges which allow you to take college at your own pace, and can either enhance your chances of promotion at work, or give you the classical education you have wanted, whether it enhances your upward financial mobility or not.

But before kids think about college, and until there is universal, free higher education in this country (a number of enlightened countries in Europe have been doing this for decades), they need to ask themselves; is this the only way to a good-paying career?!? And if they check out their options, they will see that this is absolutely not the case.

U.S. Embassy Staff Barred Entry to Moscow Properties

Russia blocked access on Tuesday to U.S. Embassy recreational property in a Moscow suburb and closed a 2,000 square meter warehouse in an industrial area in the capital's southern outskirts.

The move is part of Russia’s response to a U.S. Congress vote last week to codify existing sanctions against Moscow. Russia has also ordered Washington to cut its diplomatic staff in Russia by more than 700.

White Genocide by Design: The Role of the Mass Media in the Destruction of the European People

“Miscegenation cannot be commanded, but it can be promoted. Depriving Whites of the possibility to be among themselves in terms of residence, study, work and recreation is one thing. Suggesting miscegenation in films, TV series and commercials is another thing. There is nowadays hardly any form of media that is not full of this race mixing propaganda, mostly in subliminal form, and it is the Jews who control the media.”

Anarchy in America: Shot Down Like Dogs in the Street

Day after day, the government’s crimes against the citizenry grow more egregious, more treacherous and more tragic. And day after day, the American people wake up a little more to the grim realization that they have become captives in a prison of their own making. No longer a free people, we are now pushed and prodded and watched over by twitchy, hyper-sensitive, easily-spooked armed guards who care little for the rights, humanity or well-being of those in their care.

The death toll is mounting. The carnage is heartbreaking. The public’s faith in the government to do its job—which is to protect our freedoms—is deteriorating.

With alarming regularity, unarmed men, women, children and even pets are being gunned down by police who shoot first and ask questions later, and all the government does is shrug and promise to do better.

Things are not getting better.

142 people fell ill from fecal contaminated food in UK Muslim restaurant

Last November, I first posted about the disgusting toilet habit of Muslims in “Muslim washes his anus at public drinking fountain in Italy”.

But it’s one thing for Muslims to use their (left) hands, instead of toilet paper, to “clean” their butts after defecating. It’s another thing entirely when Muslim restaurant employees do that and then contaminate food and drinks that they serve to the public, which I chronicled in two subsequent posts:

Muslim chef contaminates kitchen with feces by wiping his butt with his hand, in accordance with Islamic toiletry code

Fecal bacteria found in cold drinks of UK’s top coffee chains

Why the U.S. health system ranks worst among wealthy countries

The U.S. spends more on health care than any other wealthy country. Yet, it ranks dead last compared with 10 others overall as well as for affordability, equity and health care outcomes (it ranked next to last for administrative efficiency). A report from The Commonwealth Fund shows that reducing the income gap between high and low earners plays a significant role in providing high quality, equally accessible health care.

This federal court decision from the Southern District of New York name-checks the pending SCOTUS review, but falls in line with every other decision in the federal court system.

(via Courthouse News Service)

Understanding that Americans no longer have a right to privacy means that everything you say, everything you type into your computer, is pretty well tracked by the Feds.

The rapidly unfolding case against Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Pakistani IT spy ring already had huge implications for National Security. Now, the story apparently goes beyond just the Democrats the Awan family was working for…

Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox Business Network on Monday where he dropped a new bombshell: not only did the Awans had access to the emails of every member of Congress, Imran Awan reportedly sold information to still unknown parties, which the FBI is currently investigating.

The explosive claim is backed up by a report in Frontpage Magazine linking the Awan brothers to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Pakistani IT staffers worked for Democrat Congressmen Andre Carson as well.

Front page reported:

The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz; to whom the letter had been addressed.

Here’s something few energy investors know...`

The Latin American energy sector is at its most lucrative turning point ever.

In Argentina, while all the supermajors are tied up in the Vaca Muerta shale, massive heavy oil opportunities are up for grabs.

In Colombia, demand for gas is dangerously outpacing supply, and the country’s largest gas field is declining rapidly. They need 65MMscf to come online every year just to keep pace. And gas in Colombia fetches attractively higher prices than the well-known Henry Hub.

One oil story in particular has an enormous profit potential, led by some of the smartest energy investors out there--a team that is renowned for being in the right place at the right time.

This company has massive early mover advantage in Argentina’s heavy oil, and it’s got Colombia cornered as well, with drill-ready natural gas developments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the coming wars and a potential revolution in Venezuela, will do their part in driving up oil prices exponentially.

Security researchers at Google have discovered a highly sophisticated spyware specialized in stealing users’ data that appears to have been developed by an Israeli company.

Google said the spyware dubbed “Lipizzan” was developed by Israeli start-up Equus Technologies which claims that it provides “tailor made innovative solutions for law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and national security organizations”.

According to Google:

“Lipizzan is a multi-stage spyware product capable of monitoring and exfiltrating a user’s email, SMS messages, location, voice calls, and media.

We have found 20 Lipizzan apps distributed in a targeted fashion to fewer than 100 devices in total and have blocked the developers and apps from the Android ecosystem.

Google Play Protect has notified all affected devices and removed the Lipizzan apps.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised that the company which developed this is Israeli?!?

The Irish Crimean: Comparing level of salaries in Russia and the West is meaningless

In Ireland, or most other Western countries for that matter, I would have to spend 6 times more money to buy a loaf of bread than I do in Russia. And the loaf of bread which I would buy in Ireland would have less than one third of the nutritional value of a loaf of Russian Darnitsky khleb. Salaries and GDP per capita are meaningless, guys. If you want to know how "wealthy" a person is, then look at the nutritional value of the food which they can buy, look at the quality of the materials which were used to build the housing which they occupy... I lived in Ireland for 28 years, in Germany for 1 year, in London for 1 year, and in the Czech Republic for 9 years. The average industrial salary in Ireland is about 30,000 Euros per year, and about half that in the Czech Republic. And yet Irish people, Czechs and Londoners STILL have to spend on average almost half their salaries on housing.

Ukraine's power generation company Centrenergo PJSC announced that it would purchase American thermal coal from Xcoal Energy and Resources based in Pennsylvania. America hopes that Ukraine will continues purchasing thermal coal from the USA. The Ukrainians already start saving up money to pay their heating bills in the winter season. The price for the US coal for Ukraine was announced on the level of $110-$130 per tonne. Ukraine will have to pay $79 million to the USA to be able to stay warm in winter.

Is Turkey the next country for a "proxy and long war" of the Transnational Elite?

While Russia helped Ankara 'without conditions' during the coup - a massive fire exploded near the military base of NATO in the air base of Incirlik - where, together with the base of Ismir, have been stationed more than 90 nuclear tactical weapons, more than in any country! Turkish authorities doubted it was an anti-American sabotage. However, the clashes of Erdogan with the west in general and America in particular, mainly in relation to the support of the Kurds by the latter, brought the withdrawing of the German military from Incirlik and afterwards the purchase of Russian missiles (S400) by Turkey. Against this purchase the Americans pleaded Turkey in order to stay a loyal alliance (and a 'client', of course) for the air defence of NATO. The amount of the purchase is about $3bl. While the Russian weapons will be manufactured in Turkey - as part of a "technology transfer" agreement. This military shift comes for the first time after 65 years of Turkey-NATO membership.

Israel - ever presented as the eternal victim - has not just made a mockery of the words but also of the Balfour letter of 2nd November 1917 and trampled on both ever since. Balfour: "His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine ..." (Emphasis added.) So much for the "rights" of the Palestinians. Between November 1947 and November 1948 five hundred and thirty one Palestinian towns and villages had been "ethnically cleansed." (1) By 1952 it was six hundred and fifteen.(2)... The land grabs are illegal and violate: U.N.
