Trump Imposes $69bn in Tariffs on Chinese Imports, accusing Bejing of Intellectual-Property Theft
March 22, 2018 – Editor – News, Video – Trump slaps China with $50 billion in trade tariffs on imports
RT – June 15, 2018: And the trade wars continue as the White House announced a 25-percent tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods in what it calls a clampdown on unfair trade practices by Beijing. The US trade representative’s office said it issued a revised China tariff list covering 1,102 separate product categories. The first package of revised tariffs will apply to $34 billion of Chinese imports, on 818 product lines, and will enter into effect from July 6. The second package will target the remaining $16 billion of Chinese goods, on 284 product lines. Since his presidential election campaign, US President Donald Trump has pledged to cut the trade deficit between the US and China and to curb Beijing’s allegedly unfair trade practices. Trump has also accused China of stealing US technology and intellectual property.

MONARCH BUTTERFLY MIGRATION AND THE “METHUSELAH GENERATION”
Friday Church News Notes, June 22, 2018 – The following is excerpted from Seeing the Non-existent: Evolution’s Myths and Hoaxes , David Cloud, copyright 2011: “In September and October one variety of the monarch flies 2,500-3,000 miles from Canada and the northern USA east of the Rocky Mountains to locations it has never seen in mountain forests in central Mexico. It even flies to the very same tree where its forebears overwintered! The exact hibernation sites were not discovered until 1975 when Dr. Fredrick Urquhart of the University of Toronto developed a method of tagging and tracking the butterflies. Hundreds of millions of butterflies find their way unerringly to these remote locations each year. The generation that flies to Mexico is called the ‘Methuselah Generation’ because it is genetically programmed to live for six to eight months rather than the few weeks that is typical for monarch butterflies.
This allows it to complete the first part of the massive migratory movement and is necessary for the monarch’s survival. (Some of them actually make the entire migration and return to their starting place in the north.) The migration to Mexico takes about two months, with the insect averaging about 30 miles a day, and the butterflies hibernate over winter in small concentrated areas, with millions congregated in a few acres. Some of the butterflies actually cross the Gulf of Mexico. In mid-March the females fly north for some distance, lay eggs, and die. The caterpillars hatch, go through metamorphosis, then continue the migration north. The new butterflies that hatch on the way, though they never meet their parents, know where they are on the migration route and exactly where to go and how to get there. It is the second, third, or even fourth generation that arrives back in the northern areas from where their forebears originated! Dr. Andrew McIntosh of the University of Leeds observes, ‘This means that a remarkable system of information is bound up in the genetic coding of each butterfly, such that it ‘knows’ at what stage of the migrating cycle the group of butterflies is in. Such a delicate mechanism shouts intelligent design!’ ( In Six Days , edited by John Ashton, p. 167). http://www.wayoflife.org
BILL DE BLASIO DITCHES NYC MIGRANT KIDS FOR PHOTO-OP, GETS NASTY SURPRISE AT BORDER
June 21, 2018 – Rebecca Diserio – Politics, U.S. News – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio left his post and responsibilities to rush down to the border on a whim, hoping for a photo-op. De Blasio ended up in El Paso, Texas, in front of a detention center, where he proceeded to scream at the armed guards to “let me in, I’m the mayor of New York.” Well, his propaganda play didn’t go so well, and the mayor got a nasty surprise.
Bill de Blasio (left), Law Enforcement Officer (right) – Just hours after promising to help the hundreds of immigrant kids being held in the Big Apple without their parents, Mayor Bill de Blasio bolted for Texas on Wednesday — for a photo-op on the Mexican border. The New York Post reports, de Blasio “on Thursday morning joined a dozen of other mayors from across the country to demand entry to an immigration facility near El Paso, Texas, where kids who’ve been separated from their moms and dads under the Trump administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy are being held — despite admitting it was a futile effort.”
“We fully expect to not be told the truth, we fully expect to be turned away the way senators and congressmen have been turned away just trying to get the honest truth about what’s happening to these children just as all of you have been doing,” de Blasio said at a press conference. https://madworldnews.com/bill-de-blasio-nyc-migrant-kids/

KATE SPADE’S FATHER DIES THE NIGHT BEFORE HER FUNERAL

By Lindsey Kupfer – June 21, 2018 – Just weeks after designer Kate Spade died by suicide and one night before her funeral, her father, Earl F. Brosnahan Jr., passed away at the age of 89.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Katy’s father, Earl F. Brosnahan, Jr. (Frank), passed away last night at age 89,” the family said in a statement to “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “He had been in failing health of late and was heartbroken over the recent death of his beloved daughter. He was at home and surrounded by family at the time of his passing.”
Brosnahan was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, where his daughter’s funeral is planned for Thursday. “I imagine there will be a crowd,” her father had told the Kansas City Star before he passed.
CANADIAN JUDGE RECOGNIZES TWO MEN IN POLYAMOROUS RELATIONSHIP WITH WOMAN AS PARENTS OF CHILD
By The Editor June 19, 2018 – Polyamory banner at London Pride Parade Photo Credit: Katy Blackwood
ST. JOHNS, N.L. — A Canadian judge has ruled that two men who are involved in a polyamorous relationship with a woman who gave birth last year should both be recognized as the child’s parents on his birth certificate. “Society is continuously changing and family structures are changing along with it,” wrote Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court’s family division. “This must be recognized as a reality and not as a detriment to the best interests of the child.”
He said that it would not be in the child’s best interests to deny parental recognition to both men, stating that when lawmakers passed the Children’s Law Act of 1997, which only allows two parents to be named on a birth certificate, they didn’t take into consideration the “now complex family relationships that are common and accepted in our society.”
“I can find nothing to disparage that relationship from the best interests of the child’s point of view,” Fowler wrote. “To deny this child the dual paternal parentage would not be in his best interests.” According to reports, the two men, whose identities have not been made public, sought to have both of their names written on the child’s birth certificate last year following his birth. However, Servicenl denied their request, pointing to Canadian law.
ARMED PASTOR TAKES DOWN SHOOTER DURING RAMPAGE AT WALMART
By Nate Brown – June 22, 2018 – An armed Pastor in Tumwater Washington is now being hailed as a hero after he thwarted an armed assailant in a local Walmart who was on a shooting rampage. Tim Day, according to authorities is responsible for the shooting, his motives remain unknown. However, there is a suspicion that Day may have been having an episode when he went on a shooting rampage. The Pastor, according to Police and local Media desired not be named and requested that his identity be kept private. However, KOMO news, while not naming the hero did say that the Pastor is also a paramedic.
As the situation unfolded the Pastor and a thirty-seven-year-old licensed gun-owner, Jesse Zamora, responded to the situation before the arrival of police. Zamora described that while he was inside the Walmart shopping with his wife he heard what sounded like two gunshots, moments later, people began to run in the store and scream “shooter.”
Zamora says at this point he pulled his gun. Moments later, he was joined by forty-seven-year-old Oakville Pastor who asked if he was armed, when Zamora responded to the Pastor “yes,” the Pastor said, “let’s go.” Zamora stated that the Pastor confronted Day and “he said something along the lines of ‘Put your gun down.” Later on, he heard gunshots and watched Day die. According to Zamora, based on the assailant’s behavior, he believes, that he would have shot more people. “Thank God for a concealed weapons permit state we live in, and those two men were carrying at the time,” Milton Mathis, a customer, told KOMO News. “We get a bad rap in this state about the ‘open carry’ law and concealed weapons permit, but that day it prevailed, and somebody’s life was saved.” https://christianjournal.net/news/armed-pastor-takes-shooter-rampage-walmart/amp
WILL ANTI-TRUST LAWS BE USED TP BREAK UP GOOGLE?
By: Boston Globe – June 22, 2018
Talk is increasing about breaking up the Technocrat cabal at Google as it continues to gain hegemony over thought and propaganda. If successful, it will end up a failure as was the case with anti-trust actions in the past. Technocrats will not play political games. TN Editor
Never in the history of the world has a single company had so much control over what people know and think. Yet Washington has been slow to recognize that Google’s power is a problem, much less embrace the obvious solution: breaking the company up.
Google accounts for about 90 percent of all Internet searches; by any honest assessment, it holds a monopoly at the very gateway to information in the modern world. From there, the company’s power radiates outward, dominating everything from maps to smartphone operating systems to video distribution — vacuuming up huge quantities of highly specific data about users along the way.
Along with Facebook, Google owns sites and services that, by some estimates, influence 70 percent of all Internet traffic. Not coincidentally, the two companies also form a duopoly that gets 73 percent of all digital advertising in the United States, and virtually all the growth in ad spending, on the Internet. Once the lifeblood of a vital free press, and later of a vast array of independent sites serving every possible interest, ad dollars increasingly flow to two tech giants that organize information produced at other people’s expense.
BIG WHITE HOUSE RESIGNATION JUST ANNOUNCED, SHOCKED TRUMP HAS ISSUED IMMEDIATE STATEMENT ON IT
BREAKING NEWS HEADLINES – Published on Jun 20, 2018
White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin, 62, unexpectedly resigned his post today. I was shocked by the announcement. He led the advance team for the talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un in Singapore this month on behalf of the White House and President Trump. Hagin is an experienced adviser who has served under three other Republican presidents. He will leave his post next month according to the White House.
Hagin served in the administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. He says he is returning to the private sector and his official departure date is July 6. “Joe Hagin has been a huge asset to my administration,” President Trump said in a statement that was released immediately. “He planned and executed the longest and one of the most historic foreign trips ever made by a President, and he did it all perfectly. We will miss him in the office and even more on the road. I am thankful for his remarkable service to our great country.”
Hagin was also the one who put together Trump’s first foreign trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy a year ago, and his tour of Asia last November. He was a very important player in the administration and his shoes will be very hard to fill. “Joe Hagin brought a level of expertise and institutional knowledge that is unrivaled,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. “He will be greatly missed by all of us.”

CNN’s ‘MAN GIVING BIRTH’ STORY GETS GRILLED
Michael Foust | ChristianHeadlines.com Contributor | Tuesday, June 19, 2018 A CNN.com Father’s Day story about a man who allegedly gave birth stirred plenty of debate on social media, with some saying the network was ignoring science in the name of political correctness.
“He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man,” the story’s headline read.
It told about a person, Sabastion Sparks, who is biologically a female but identifies as a man. Sabastian in 2016 married Angel Sparks, who is biologically a male but identifies as a female. The story then detailed how they got pregnant.
“Like many transgender men and women, they had been taking medication to increase the testosterone or estrogen in their bodies. So to make a baby, they briefly stopped taking their hormone pills,” it read. “The couple conceived their son the conventional way, even though their biological roles at the time were not compatible with how they saw themselves.” Sabastion had her breasts removed this year after breastfeeding and is worried the child will view her as a woman. All total, more than 10,000 people commented on CNN’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. “He gave birth, he breastfed?’” one person on Facebook asked. “People it’s not that complicated .. at the end of the day ‘he’ is still a woman.” Another wrote, “Men don’t have a uterus. That’s a woman.”

THE BANNED SPEECH BY TOMMY ROBINSON IN THE UK:
IF WE IN AMERICA THINK THIS COULD NOT HAPPEN HERE – THINK AGAIN
On June 19, 2018/ By Geri Ungurean – In Truth is the new Hate Speech
I have been following the saga of Tommy Robinson of the U.K. and his unjust (illegal) 13 month incarceration with no due process of law. Why was he arrested? For speaking TRUTH.
Tommy Robinson is not a trouble maker. I’ve heard some Leftist liberals label him as such; and I’m telling the reader that it is NOT true. This man spoke out about Muslim grooming gangs who “groom” young British girls to be raped by them. Pretty shocking – wouldn’t you say?
Tommy Robinson gave a speech to alert the people of the U.K. and freedom loving people across the planet, of what was happening to him and his family. Here is the speech which had been banned in the U.K.:
Sadiq Khan. Mr. Khan is a radical Muslim who just happens to be the mayor of London. The U.K. and London in particular is a snapshot of what is happening to all of Europe. The forced mass migration of Muslims into European countries was part of the Sustainable Development Goals of the U.N. in 2015. I’ve written many articles about this.

WATCH AND LISTEN AS BILLY GRAHAM IN HIS OWN WORDS SHOWS STEADY SLIDE INTO LAODICEAN APOSTASY
If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not. He would have looked at his friend, Pope John Paul II, as a lost sinner in need of a Saviour, and pleaded with him to become born again. But there is no record of any kind that he ever spoke those words to the pope.
by Geoffrey Grider April 30, 2017 – IF BILLY GRAHAM WOULD HAVE BEEN PREACHING THE TRUE GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD, PAUL’S GOSPEL FOR THE CHURCH AGE, HE WOULD NOT HAVE DOUBTED IF HELL WAS A REAL PLACE OR NOT
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3a (KJV)
Christians get mad when you point out that evangelist Billy Graham was really a wolf in sheep’s clothing who spent more than half of his ministry defending and promoting the Pope, and sending the “converts” from his rallies to Catholic churches.
Did you know that Billy Graham believed and taught that you could be saved and not know it? That the Body of Christ will include non-Christians from other religions as well as pagans? How about the time he told Larry King on CNN that he feels absolutely comfortable worshipping in a Mormon church? Now before you go and stroke out over what I’m telling you, take a moment to watch the video below and hear all of that and more from Billy’s own lips, at a time when he was still well in possession of all his mental faculties.

THE DEMONIC WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES JOINS WITH THE VATICAN TO PROMOTE FORCED GLOBAL MIGRATION OF ILLEGALS
The World Council of Churches said it is partnering with the Vatican department for Promoting Integral Human Development in preparing the conference to be held September 17-20 as part of ongoing work toward “peace-building and migration.”
by Geoffrey Grider June 16, 2018
THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES HAS ANNOUNCED A JOINT VENTURE WITH THE VATICAN TO CO-HOST A MEETING NEXT SEPTEMBER ON “MIGRATION, XENOPHOBIA, AND POLITICALLY MOTIVATED POPULISM.” “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)
GEOFFREY’S EDITOR’S NOTE: As Israel was becoming a nation again back in 1948 in fulfillment of Bible prophecy, Billy Graham was asked: “What do you expect the World Council of Churches to do this August when they visit Copenhagen?” He replied: “I believe they are going to nominate the Antichrist!” That was back when Billy was mostly a Bible believer and had no issue with drawing the line in the sand when it came to exposing and preaching against false religions and movements like the WCC. But by 1952 and all into the 1960’s , Graham left his strong doctrinal stance and made alliances with not only the WCC but with the Vatican as well. Today we rightly recognize Billy Graham as the father of the Laodicean eccumenical movement. In 2018, the globalist group World Council of Churches is a proud partner with the Whore of Babylon as they seek to preach the George Soros gospel of open borders and forced migration of illegals. You can find dozens of articles and videos showing Pope Francis preaching on climate change, prosperity, nuclear war, wealth redistribution, or any other social justice topic you can think of. But you will never hear him preach the gospel of the grace of God that lost people might be saved. Not one time. But you will hear Francis say that a ‘personal relationship’ with Jesus Christ is ‘dangerous and harmful‘.
The World Council of Churches said it is partnering with the Vatican department for Promoting Integral Human Development in preparing the conference to be held September 17-20 as part of ongoing work toward “peace-building and migration.” The General of the WCC, Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit, said the meeting would be a “very useful and significant workshop to dig a bit deeper” into the problems of xenophobia as an expression of populism, as well as its links to racism, conflict, and violence in countries around the world.
Last September, the Vatican launched a two-year campaign to change people’s minds about migrants and to encourage a more welcoming attitude toward them worldwide. “Brothers, we mustn’t be afraid to share the journey! We mustn’t be afraid to share the hope!” Francis said in his weekly General Audience on September 27, in which he inaugurated the new project, titled “Share the Journey.”

ULTRA-LIBERAL NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR PHIL MURPHY SIGNS BILL GIVING COLLEGE TUITION TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DREAMERS
“Let’s be clear about one thing: Our DREAMers are just as much New Jerseyans as my and Tammy’s four kids,” Murphy said before signing the measure at Rutgers-Newark, among the most diverse universities in the U.S. Murphy and several lawmakers who attended Wednesday’s ceremony repeatedly referred to the students as DREAMers — undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and qualify for the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. To qualify for financial aid, however, the students do not need to be in the DACA program — though many likely will.
by Geoffrey Grider June 18, 2018 – GOV. PHIL MURPHY ON WEDNESDAY SIGNED INTO LAW A BILL ALLOWING UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WHO GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL IN NEW JERSEY TO QUALIFY FOR FINANCIAL AID, DURING A CEREMONY THAT FEATURED SEVERAL BROADSIDES AGAINST PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.
EDITOR’S NOTE: I was born and raised in the great state of New Jersey. It’s a ‘great state’ because of its incredible beauty from the 127 miles of Jersey Shore coastline all the way to the gorgeous, rolling countryside out where it borders Pennsylvania. So why is New Jersey the #2 state that middle class people and large corporations are fleeing from in record numbers? Because New Jersey loves to fund welfare and entitlement programs, like today’s story about illegal immigrants now qualifying for college tuition loans. My parents bought their house in 1952 for $14,000 on a 30-year mortgage. In 2018, $14,500 doesn’t even pay the property taxes on the small lot the house sits on. How long can any state in our country function under those conditions? It can’t. As you will see in the video below, NJ Gov. Phil Murphy is a loud, adversarial, arrogant Liberal who loves spending other people’s money. Bruce Springsteen once sang in one of his songs, “…and it was bye, bye New Jersey”. So glad I got out years ago.
“Let’s be clear about one thing: Our DREAMers are just as much New Jerseyans as my and Tammy’s four kids,” Murphy said before signing the measure at Rutgers-Newark, among the most diverse universities in the U.S.
The bill, NJ S 699 (18R), is the culmination of a 10-year effort, as Murphy and several lawmakers who attended Wednesday’s ceremony repeatedly referred to the students as DREAMers — undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and qualify for the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. To qualify for financial aid, however, the students do not need to be in the DACA program — though many likely will.Cont’d:

TRUMP SUPREME COURT TRAVEL BAN RULING’S MOMENT OF PROFOUND VINDICATION
June 26, 2018 – President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries was a victory for Americans and “a moment of profound vindication” for his policy.
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution,” he said in a statement. “This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.”
GIVING TO CHARITY GETS SHORT-LIVED JOLT FROM TRUMP TAX LAW
Charity Gets a Jolt from Tax Law but Due to Drop Next Year
December 28, 2017 – Image: Zimmytws – Dreamstime
In this season of giving, charity seems to be getting an extra jolt because next year the popular tax deduction for donations will lose a lot of its punch. Traditionally generous Americans may have less incentive to give to charitable causes next year because of the newly minted tax law. The changes that will make it less advantageous for many people to donate to charity in 2018 may be sparking a year-end stream of fattened contributions in anticipation, charity executives and experts say.
Starting next year, the millions of relatively small donations from moderate-income people to mainstream charities could be sharply reduced, they say.
That means charity could become less of a middle-class enterprise and a more exclusive domain of the wealthy, who tend to give to arts and cultural institutions, research facilities and universities. Their use of the charitable tax deduction is less likely to be affected by the new law. https://www.newsmax.com/finance/investinganalysis/giving-charity-trump-tax/2017/12/28/id/834087/
YOU’LL BE SHOCKED TO SEE DEDUCTIONS YOU’VE LOST UNDER NEW TAX BILL
Newsmax.com – By John Mauldin – April 23, 2018 – The Republican Congress had to scramble to find additional sources of revenue in order to make up tax reductions for corporation and lower tier income groups. And they found some of that revenue by taking away deductions.
There are literally scores of smaller deductions that you were previously able to itemize that will not be available in 2018, or 2019 at the latest.
Let’s look at just some of the bigger ones. Local Income Taxes
Everybody knows that state and local income taxes (SALT) will no longer be completely deductible. You will be allowed to deduct only up to $10,000.
That is especially painful for people who live in states with high income taxes and/or property taxes. And while Texas and other low-tax states don’t have an income tax, local governments are financed by property taxes that are typically higher than those of a lot of states.
Mortgages Above $750,000
Starting in 2018, homeowners can take a mortgage interest deduction on a loan of up to $750,000, down from the current limit of $1 million.
When the median home in California is $480,000, a lot of homeowners are going to have mortgages in excess of $750,000. Cont’d:
GOP TAX LAW TAKES AIM AT CHURCHES, NON-PROFITS
By Brian Freeman – June 26, 2018 – Newsmax.com – The Republican tax reform passed in December is requiring churches, hospitals, colleges and other historically tax-exempt organizations to begin paying a 21 percent tax on some types of fringe benefits they give their employees, Politico reported on Tuesday. Many non-profit organizations are stunned to learn of the tax, which has been little noticed and could cost them tens of thousands of dollars. Many of the groups say it will be a significant financial burden, as well as an administrative one, as they previously did not have to deal with the IRS.
With midterms approaching it could also prove to be harmful politically for Republicans, as the tax-exempt status of churches in particular has long been considered sacrosanct. Even though many are still unaware of the change, more than 600 churches and other groups have already signed a petition demanding the change be repealed.
“A lot of people are just finding out about it and the more people find out about it, the more pressure there will be on Treasury and Congress to either delay implementation or consider changing this,” Steven Woolf, who is senior tax policy counsel for the Jewish Federations of North America, told Politico.

The main benefits affected are transportation-related, like free parking in a garage and subway and bus passes, as well as targeting meals provided to workers. “What we’re talking about is an income tax on the church for providing parking to its employees,” said Mike Batts, chairman of the board of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, which is circulating the petition criticizing the tax. “It’s absurd.”
Many nonprofits say they are confused over how exactly the tax works, with churches, for example, asking how they are supposed to calculate the value of parking spaces for employees. WDEL pointed out that this is another example of massive legislation before Congress in which even the lawmakers can’t immediately comprehend all the ramifications of it at the time they vote. The Treasury is now working on regulations detailing how the tax will work, even though the groups are supposed to have already been paying the tax every quarter since it went into effect on Jan. 1, according to Politico.
Meanwhile, Republican Texas Rep. Michael Conaway introduced a bill earlier this month to rescind this particular tax provision.
PERHAPS THE BIGGEST ROADBLOCK TO TRUMP’S MAGA AGENDA HAS BEEN RADICAL, LIBERAL JUDGES
These men and women, appointed by previous presidents and other powers, have interfered with President Trump’s lawful authority.
But that’s all about to change. Judges are supposed to be impartial. They have a solemn duty to uphold our laws. Decisions made by judges can decide the fate of not just one person, but millions. Judges that preside over federal issues can very well affect the lives of every last American.
We’ve seen how radical judges can harm our country. Obama-appointed judges have overstepped their bounds by attacking Trump’s lawful executive orders. They have allowed their personal, political views to violate their responsibilities. Not only that, but certain groups within our government have been appointing judges – without the approval of the president. This is clearly a violation of the Constitution. Thankfully, the Supreme Court felt so too. Now many questionable judges are about to get their walking papers.
From Reuters: The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday expanded presidential control over pivotal jobs in federal agencies, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected its in-house judges to enforce investor-protection laws was improper. In a 7-2 ruling, the justices overturned a lower court ruling that had endorsed the SEC’s in-house judge hiring practice that operated autonomously from the president. The ruling could reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000 administrative law judges deciding matters as varied as unfair trade practices, veterans benefits and patent infringement. Such a ruling could also make it easier for some of these judges to be fired by political appointees.
Six of the justices said the appointments of the judges were unconstitutional. Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer agreed with the outcome, but said it only violated federal administrative law. Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the decision. The SEC-appointed judges have long been a controversy. The Commission had the power to appoint their own judges. These judges were overseeing crucial cases that affected private businesses and the investment industry. Clearly, there was a conflict of interest. It would have been very easy for the SEC to select judges that would only vote in their favor. Or, compromised members of the Commission could have picked judges whose rulings would appease corrupt investment firms. You see the problem?
The President – who has authority to appoint federal judges – was cut out of the loop. He would play a crucial role in deciding if judges should stand or not. Instead, the SEC had free rein. Not anymore. This ruling can open the door for Trump to reevaluate numerous, questionable judge seats. Judges that are clearly letting their bias get in the way of their job might be in trouble. Trump can allow his cabinet to take stock of sitting judges and decide if they should, in fact, stick around. Perhaps we’ll see another purge in Washington. Yet more of the swamp drained.

MEXICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CALLS MASS MIGRATION TO USA A ‘HUMAN RIGHT’
June 22, 2018 – Dominic Mancini – Reporter – Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) declared mass immigration to the United States a “human right” for all North Americans during a speech Tuesday. “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared migration “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.
While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far the frontrunner. (RELATED: Mag: Mexican Official Dreams Of Trump Assassination, But Most Urge Prudence) Obrador in April delivered speech criticizing Trump and promising that Mexico will not become a “piñata” for any foreign government, Global News reports. The former mayor of Mexico City, Obrador holds progressive populist views. The 64-year-old ran unsuccessfully for president twice before, according to DW. Fox’s Tucker Carlson noted Thursday that Obrador has previously proposed granting amnesty to Mexican drug cartels. “America is now Mexico’s social safety net, and that’s a very good deal for the Mexican ruling class,” Carlson added. Clarification: This post has been clarified to more accurately reflect Obrador’s comments on mass migration as a “human right.”

The California Congresswoman went on a shouting rampage during a toy drive outside the Wilshire Federal Building on Saturday.
After claiming Trump is”sacrificing our children,” referring to the illegal immigrant kids separated from their “parents” near the border, Waters again called for the president’s impeachment, triggering loud applause from the baying mob. “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” she yelled, whipping up the crowd. “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” she warned.
“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants,” she continued as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,’” she continued. “And guess what,” she predicted, “we’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don’t know the Bible. “God is on OUR side!” she declared, as the crowd went wild. “On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable.”

WIRED ITALY’S WEIRD TECHNOPOPULISM COULD BE THE NEW NORMAL
By: Gian Volpicelli – June 21, 2018 – Castellani believes that “far from being foes, technocracy and populism are increasingly becoming allies in a war against a common enemy: representative democracy and traditional politicians.” Whether intentional or not, a major European nation was just flipped into Technocracy by Populists. TN Editor
So Italy has a government. On Wednesday June 6, Giuseppe Conte, an obscure academic handpicked by a coalition between the far-right League party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement to be prime minister, secured the Parliament’s backing. He already made clear that banging his fist in Brussels to relax the eurozone’s rigorous budget rules is high on his list of priorities. He also seems keen on getting cosy with Russia.
The European Union is not happy, Italian bonds are doing badly on the markets, and Trumpist impresario Steve Bannon – recently in Rome gallivanting on rooftops and having over the creme de la creme of the Nationalist International, including leaders from the League and Five Star – is hailing Italy as the epicentre of the populist revolution he has been peddling all over Europe. Among all the drama and the coattail-riding, one thing about Italy’s new government has almost gone unnoticed. This is not a populist government; it is a techno-populist one.
The Conte cabinet is a chimeric organism. Within it, populist and extremist politicians cohabit with the very best of Italy’s technocratic elite. While both the League’s Matteo Salvini and Five Star’s Luigi Di Maio have been assigned ministerial posts to pursue their political hobby horses, the key levers of power are in technocratic hands: the Minister of Foreign Affairs is a former EU official; the Treasury is run by a university dean; Conte himself— a civil law professor whose face and voice had never been heard and seen by any Italian up until a couple of weeks ago— is a technocrat through and through.
The whole thing seems odd: we instinctively tend to think of populism and technocracy as warring parties. Technocrats deal in numbers, graphs and allegedly science-backed solutions; populist parties deal in emotions, despise unelected bureaucrats, and champion the real people’s very real will. These guys should be at each other’s throat. Yet they are ruling together. How come?
13 YEAR OLD CHARGED WITH FELONY FOR RECORDING CONVERSATION WITH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL
JUNE 23, 2018 – By Jay Syrmopoulos
Manteno, IL – A trip to the principal’s office at Manteno Middle School resulted in controversial felony eavesdropping charges for 13-year-old Paul Boron, in what is the latest saga of controversy regarding an Illinois eavesdropping law, which critics have warned is ripe for abuse and could be misapplied by authorities. On the day in question, Boron was called to the office for not showing up for a number of detentions. Prior to meeting with Principal David Conrad and Assistant Principal Nathan Short, Boron turned on an audio recording application on his cell phone to record the exchange. A report by Illinois Policy explained the chronology of events:
Boron said he argued with Conrad and Short for approximately 10 minutes in the reception area of the school secretary’s office, with the door open to the hallway. When Boron told Conrad and Short he was recording, Conrad allegedly told Boron he was committing a felony and promptly ended the conversation. The incident, which took place in February, resulted in the 13 year old being charged two months later, in April, with one count of class 4 felony eavesdropping. “If I do go to court and get wrongfully convicted, my whole life is ruined,” Boron, who lives with his mother and four siblings in Manteno, Illinois, an hour southwest of Chicago, told Illinois Policy. “I think they’re going too far.”
According to court records, Kankakee County Assistant State’s Attorney Mark Laws alleges that on Feb. 16, Boron “used a cell phone to surreptitiously record a private conversation between the minor and school officials without the consent of all parties.” The boy’s mother, Leah McNally, noted her disappointment that the school chose to prosecute Boron, who is legally blind in his right eye, rather than help him overcome his disability and achieve his “full potential in life.” “It blew my mind that they would take it that far,” she said. “I want to see him be able to be happy and live up to his full potential in life, especially with the disability he has.” Illinois Policy reported that the Manteno district handbook specified that students are not allowed to record interactions with other students at the school, but did not provide specifics about recording interactions with teachers. School officials have thus far refused to comment on the incident.
CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST MIGRANT ‘RESCUE’ NGOs – REPORT
German MPs are planning to bring criminal human trafficking charges against NGOs ‘rescuing’ migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, according to a new report.
June 29, 2018 – Breitbart London has laid eyes on a statement endorsed by 42 members of anti-migration party Alternative For Germany (AfD), indicating that the group will formally file the charges this weekend in conjunction with a party conference in Augsburg.
“The Bundestag members plan to bring charges of ‘aid or assisting in illegal immigration repeatedly or on behalf of several foreigners’ against the NGOs SOS Mediterranée, Sea-Watch, Sea-Eye, and Mission Lifeline,” reports Chris Tomlinson. “Germany is the last country in Europe still keeping its borders open to mass illegal immigration. The activity of these radical left-wing NGOs offers an incitement for illegal migrants to risk their lives on the Mediterranean in unseaworthy craft, and must be stopped,” said Petr Bystron, a spokesman for AfD who is spearheading the initiative. Bystron called for the Maltese government to impound the NGO vessels Sea-Eye, Sea-Watch 3, and Lifeline and arrest their crew members while AfD files the charges. “They are making a lot of money with this,” he said. “SOS Mediterranée makes four million [euros] a year, another one, 1.7 million and the smallest one, which has been caught now, a quarter million a year.”

IS BILL CLINTON WARNING THAT DEM RADICALISM COULD KILL A BLUE WAVE
By Selwyn Duke – Thursday, 28 June 2018 – Behaving like a knave could kill the blue wave. According to one commentator, this may be the message triangulation-master Bill Clinton has for his Democratic Party, which is increasingly descending into irrationality and an ever-intensifying anti-American radicalism. As American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson writes, “Trump Derangement Syndrome is combining with resentment over the cheating of Bernie Sanders out of the 2016 presidential nomination to lead the Democratic Party toward an embrace of angry radicalism, which will result in rejection by voters on November 8. Bill Clinton, who led his party to victory in the 1990s with moderation (‘triangulation’), apparently sees the danger of the party repulsing mainstream Americans and gaining status as a radical minority, successful only in big cities.” Clinton appeared on the Tuesday edition of the Daily Show with host Trevor Noah and, among other things, discussed the recent ejection of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders from a Virginia restaurant and the issue of increasing incivility in general. He remarked that he had a “lot of respect” for how Sanders handled the matter (video below. Relevant portion begins at 8:48), a stance that Lifson interprets as an effort by Clinton to model effective, election-winning behavior.
76 DOCTORS, 23 PAHRMACISTS CRIMINALLY INDICTED BY TRUMP’S DOJ
Talk about draining the medical swamp… – Trump’s DOJ has issued over 600 criminal indictments in a massive crackdown on health care fraud. This includes 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists and many more people, all engaged in billions in health care fraud. BOOM! Trump’s DOJ criminally charges 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists, 19 nurses raking in billions in medical fraud to push toxic drugs Friday

(Natural News) President Trump is draining the “medical swamp.” The U.S. health care system is plagued by rampant fraud, abuse and profiteering carried out by dishonest doctors and pharmacists. In working to combat the rampant fraud, the DOJ has announced an unprecedented crackdown on medical fraud, charging over 600 people with criminal activities that involved over $2 billion medical fraud.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered prepared remarks, saying, “This year we are charging 601 people, including 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists, 19 nurses, and other medical personnel with more than $2 billion in medical fraud. In this latest operation, with the help of our fabulous partners at HHS, we have charged another 162 people—including 32 doctors—with the illegal distribution of opioids. This is the most doctors, the most medical personnel, and the most fraud that the Department of Justice has ever taken on in any single law enforcement action. This is the most defendants we’ve ever charged with health care fraud. It’s also the most opioid-related fraud defendants we’ve ever charged in a single enforcement action.”
One doctor, explained Sessions, defrauded Medicare of over $112 million, “distributing 2.2 million unnecessary doses of drugs like oxycodone and fentanyl.” (See Opioids.news for more coverage of opioid drugs. Another site launching soon is BadDoctors.news.)
Yet more proof that the failed pharma-central health care system is a massive criminal drug racket
ANOTHER STEP TO THE LEFT FOR DEMOCRATS
The triumph of a political candidate in Queens, N.Y., illustrates the widening partisan divide on Israel and much else.
By Jonathan S. Tobin – June 28, 2018 – JNS) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t on her way to Congress because of her hostility to the State of Israel. The upset victory of a Democratic Socialist over one of the highest ranking Democrats in Congress, as well as the boss of the party in New York City’s Queens County, did not hinge on her declaring that Israel was perpetrating a “massacre” in Gaza and her call for members of the party to join in denouncing the Jewish state.

She beat Rep. Joe Crowley for a number of sound political reasons, including the demographics of a district with an overwhelmingly minority population and the way the Democratic base—the people who turn out to vote in primaries—is shifting hard left.

ALL ARAB, AFRICAN NATIONS ELIMINATED FROM WORLD CUP AFTER DRAMATIC GROUP STAGE
Disappointing performances from Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia see them out before third group game; Iran also out after 1-1 tie with Portugal
By TOI STAFF and AFP – June 24, 2018 – Only six countries have won the World Cup in the last 50 years, but a thrilling group stage in Russia has increased the possibility of a fresh name at least making it to the final. Left out of the excitement, however, are the Arab and African nations who competed in this year’s competition, all failing to progress to the knock stages. Despite having one of the world’s best strikers, Egypt was eliminated from the World Cup without a win, as were Morocco and Tunisia. Saudi Arabia managed only one victory — over Egypt, after both teams had been mathematically ruled out of progressing. A draw with Portugal in their third match saw Iran also knocked out of the tournament. 2018 was the first time four Arab nations reached the World Cup finals but their stay was short-lived. And the other African nations fared no better.
EU LEADERS SEAL HARD-FOUGHT DEAL TO STEM REFUGEE INFLUX SUMMIT ON MIGRATION

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AFP) — EU leaders clinched a crucial migration deal during all-night talks Friday that Italy’s hardline new premier said meant his country was “no longer alone” in shouldering the responsibility for migrants.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, who heads a month-old anti-immigration government, had vetoed joint conclusions for the entire agenda of the summit in Brussels until his demands were finally met before dawn. Italy has turned away a series of migrant boats in recent weeks, sparking a fresh political row three years after the bloc faced its biggest ever migration crisis. “Today Italy is no longer alone. We are satisfied,” Conte, a former law professor who until recently was a virtual political unknown, told reporters following marathon talks described as “virulent.” The 28 leaders agreed to consider setting up “disembarkation platforms” outside the bloc, most likely in north Africa, in a bid to discourage migrants boarding EU-bound smuggler boats.

Member countries could set up migrant processing centers — but only on a voluntary basis — to determine whether they returned home as economic migrants or admitted as refugees in willing states.
French President Emmanuel Macron said that “European cooperation enabled this.” Merkel hails ‘good message’ The leaders also offered a concession to German Chancellor Merkel, who faces a rebellion from within her own coalition government, with moves to stop migrants registered in Italy and other EU countries from moving to Germany. Merkel said: “After intensive discussion on what is perhaps the most challenging issue for the European union, it is a good message that we have adopted a joint text.” She had earlier warned that “migration could end up determining Europe’s destiny” if it failed to reach an agreement. The summit conclusions called on member countries to take “all necessary” steps to stop migrants initially arriving in countries such as Italy and Greece from moving on to Germany. https://www.timesofisrael.com/eu-leaders-seal-hard-fought-deal-to-stem-refugee-influx/

NORTH AND SOUTH KOREAN CHURCH LEADERS ISSUE CALL TO PEACE
By Nate Brown – June 25, 2018 – A two-day historic meeting involving church leaders from both the North and South of the Korean Peninsula has ended in Geneva with the Ecumenical Forum for Peace, Reunification and Development Cooperation on the Korean Peninsula (EFK) issuing a call to “Seek Peace and Pursue It.” “In order to enhance the political environment for realisation of the commitments made at the Panmunjom Summit and the subsequent DPRK-US Singapore Summit, we appeal for all countries to refrain from the confrontation and militarisation in the region”, the EFK said in its
statement at the end of the meeting on 23 June 2018. “In addition, in order to remove obstacles to development cooperation in the spirit of the
Panmunjom Declaration, we call for the economic sanctions against the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) to be lifted immediately,” the EFK said.Members of the Korean Christian Federation (KCF) from the DPRK and the National Council of Churches of Korea, from the Republic of Korea, sat at the same table during the meeting. The EFK met in the Swiss city on 22-23 June, in the year of the 70th anniversary of the World

ARKANSAS FALSE TEACHER CLAIMS AT FUNERAL ‘HELL IS AN IMAGINARY PLACE,’ ALL THAT STUFF IS A FAIRYTALE’

By Heather Clark – June 25, 2018 – BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. — Concerns are being raised after the leader of Prince of Peace Church in Blytheville, Arkansas recently claimed at a young man’s funeral that “Hell is an imaginary place,” and that Hell is just what a person creates upon the Earth.
Footage of the funeral was posted to social media this past week, showing Timothy Rogers
asserting that people have been “bamboozled” into believing in Hell, and suggesting that
Heaven isn’t an eternal destination either. “If he’s asleep, he ain’t got to endure the pale horse or escape the pale horse no more,” he said, the casket just feet away. “You see, because when you’re dead, you’re done.” “I know they told you … ya’ll wondering, is he going to Hell? Did he accept Jesus as his
[Savior]?” Rogers asked of the man who died. “See, y’all have been sold a lie. You’ve been bamboozled. All that stuff is a fairytale. To believe in Hell means you have to believe in Santa Claus.” His remarks were met with applause and exclamations of affirmation.
AUTHOR OF THE NEW AGE BOOK ‘THE SHACK’ CLAIMS THAT SALVATION CAN HAPPEN AFTER DEATH: ‘I DON’T THINK THAT DEATH IS OUR DAMNATION’
[Ednote: That’s what Mormons teach as well. They go to the Temples to get baptized for the dead. Everyone goes to heaven. According to them this world is hell.]
June 27, 2018 – The book ‘The Shack’ was authored by a man named William P. Young and was recently turned into a major motion picture which portrayed God as a woman. William was recently interviewed by Eternity News, regarding his new documentary “The Heart of Man,” in which he claimed that after death, mankind is still granted the chance to be reconciled after death. In reference is the wildly popular prodigal son parable from Scripture, where William and Eternity News are discussing the consequences if the prodigal son does not return to the Father.
Young stated in regards to such; “You’re putting a ‘[if you] don’t return’ as if death is the final arbiter.” Furthermore, William said that he holds a different view than most and that when Scripture is talking about “neither death nor life … shall be able to separate us from the love of God,” it is not just talking to Christians; instead, it is talking to all mankind. “[E]very time the New Testament talks about the issue of judgment, it talks about krisis – the Greek word for judgment – and it’s a crisis. You’re going to enter a crisis, and I don’t think the story is over; I don’t think death is our damnation,” Young claimed.
Young did, however, say that Jesus is both the Savior and Judge and that men will receive ramifications for their actions and choices. The author also believes that they can potentially change their minds as God continues to pursue them. “I think that Jesus is both our salvation and rightful judge, but that judgment is intended for our good, not our harm,” Young said. “So, what does it mean? Well, you get to experience the losses of your choices, and that’s no fun. I mean it’s devastating.” The interviewer then asked if Young meant only in this life or for eternity, to which he responded that it depends on whether or not the person changes their choices after death.
PASTOR LAMENTS PROFESSING CHRISTIANS WHO DEFEND TV DRAMA ‘LUCIFER’ – IT IS A DECEPTIVE LIE … TO CLAIM DEVIL COULD BE REDEEMED’
By Heather Clark – June 27, 2018 – SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — A California pastor who is known for his warnings about the glorification of evil by Hollywood and the secular music industry has weighed in on reports that Netflix has decided to pick up the fourth season of the fantasy police drama “Lucifer”
and the fact that a number of professing Christians are defending the show in asserting that it contains a positive message that if Satan can be redeemed by God, then anyone can. “One of the ridiculous lies that is promoted in the show ‘Lucifer’ is that Satan was somehow redeemed by God, and that his redemption shows that all of us have hope––no matter how wicked we choose to be,” Joe Schimmel, pastor of Blessed Hope Chapel in Simi Valley, California and host of the documentary “Hollywood’s War on God,” wrote in a recent blog post. He noted that in the third season of the fictional drama, Lucifer Morningstar’s angel wings are restored, and his older angelic brother Amenadiel suggests, “Perhaps Father is trying to show you that you’ve been forgiven. Brother, if you can be redeemed, that means that anyone can. Now isn’t that divine?” For this reason and others, a number of professing Christians and “Lucifans” have defended the broadcast, arguing, “[The show is] about redemption. If the devil can be redeemed, then there’s hope for the rest of us sad sacks of human flesh” and “I ask you, who needs more forgiving than the devil himself … its core argument is all about the power of redemption.”
US SUPREME COURT DECLINES APPEAL OF RULING AGAINST EXCLUSIVELY CHRISTIAN PRAYERS DURING COMMISSIONER MEETINGS
By Heather Clark – June 28, 2018 – By The Editor WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal of a Fourth Circuit ruling that declared that the Rowan County Board of Commissioners may not “elevate one religion above all others,” namely Christianity, by presenting exclusively Christian prayers at public meetings. Two justices, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, dissented and said that they would have accepted the case.
“This Court’s Establishment Clause jurisprudence is in disarray,” Thomas wrote. “… “I would
have granted certiorari in this case. The Fourth Circuit’s decision is both unfaithful to our precedents and ahistorical. It also conflicts with a recent en banc decision of the Sixth Circuit.”
“While the Fourth Circuit stated that a ‘combination’ of factors made the board’s prayers unconstitutional, virtually all of the factors it identified were present in Town of Greece (the 2014 Supreme Court case). The Fourth Circuit noted that the board’s prayers were typically Christian and occasionally promoted Christianity at the expense of other religions. But so did the prayers in Town of Greece,” he contended. Thomas noted that legislative prayer has been a part of the fabric of America from its inception.
“Prior to Independence, the South Carolina Provincial Congress appointed one of its members to lead the body in prayer. Several states, including West Virginia and Illinois, opened their constitutional conventions with prayers led by convention members instead of chaplains,” he outlined. “The historical evidence shows that Congress and state legislatures have opened legislative sessions with legislator-led prayer for more than a century,” Thomas continued. “In short, the Founders simply ‘did not intend to prohibit a just expression The remainder of this article is available in its entirety at Christian News
FACEBOOK SURVEY ASKS USERS IF THEY CONDONE PEDOPHILIA
By BZ AM Riger – June 28, 2018 – Disclosure – Facebook survey asks users if they condone pedophilia
By Nicolas Vega, published on New York Post, on March 5, 2018
Facebook is under fire for publishing a stomach-churning survey that asked users whether pedophiles should be allowed to solicit “sexual pictures” from underage girls. The cringeworthy poll surfaced at the top of Facebook’s home page for an unspecified number of users this past weekend, according to a report.
“In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook’s policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures,” one question in the survey reads.
The disgusting multiple-choice poll gave users the option to condone the sick behavior, allowing them to vote that the “content should be allowed on Facebook, and I would not mind seeing it.” Another possible, nausea-inducing response was that “the content should be allowed on Facebook, but I don’t want to see it.” The twisted survey was spotted by an editor at the Guardian, who published screenshots of it on Twitter. “I[s] making it secret the best Facebook can offer here?” Jonathan Haynes wrote as he tweeted out the “I don’t want to see it” response in the poll. “Not, y’know, calling the police?” Yet another bone-headed question asked users who should decide whether pedophilic content was allowed on Facebook — users, Facebook and users, just Facebook or an outside entity. On Monday, the social networking giant headed by Mark Zuckerberg admitted that it was a “mistake” to publish the survey, which appeared to suggest that Facebook execs were openly debating whether to allow pedophiles on the site.
“We run surveys to understand how the community thinks about how we set policies,” Facebook vice president Guy Rosen said in response to Haynes’ tweet. “But this kind of activity is and will always be completely unacceptable on FB.”
PASSIIONATE SUPER FREEMASON NWO MERKEL IN GERMAN PARLIAMENT DESTINY QUESTION FOR THE EU
My Multilateral Values, so that Africa Believes in It, or (my/EU´s/ City of London´s) Credibility Is over!
By Anders – June 29, 2018 – Chancellor Merkel in German Parliament 28 June 2018:
It seems that Merkel will win the fray over the free Muslim immigration to Germany – and that Minister of the Interior Seehofer has to abdicate! Of course, because in the Illuminati — Superfreemason Merkel is much stronger than Seehofer, who has previously conceded, which forces really govern: The Illuminati Corporations. In addition, both are siblings of the Rotary Club Masonic lodges: (Many interestng members!!) Nevertheless, If a satisfactory EU plan to solve the migrant crisis is not achieved today — Seehofer will use his authority as a minister to return migrants who already are registrated in another EU Country (The Dublin agreement) – and risk being fired. Naturally, Seehofer is the underdog. Too bad for Europe. The fact of the matter is: The EU does not fight – but invites Muslims to come and settle and here – keeping all of them- only returning symbolically few who get a bag of our money with them – and they can return later to repeat the farce.
IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S SEX ABUSE SCANDALS, WHAT SEEMS LIKE BAD NEWS FOR THE CHURCH – SEEMINGLY DAILY HEADLINES ABOUT CLERGY DISCIPLINED – IS ACTUALLY GOOD NEWS.
The truly bad news of the scandal, of course, has been the horrible abuse of children, which will have negative effects on them for the rest of their lives. The good news is that perpetrators have been caught and exposed. Accusations are being investigated and the guilty are being punished. When the abuse scandal was first uncovered in the United States some 30 years ago, bishops in other countries denied they had a problem. What is clearly a worldwide problem is now getting attention at the highest level in the church, thanks to Pope Francis. In this sense, we should be happy to see more bad headlines because it means more bad actors are being caught.
Some of the cases that have received media attention in recent months include: — Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, retired archbishop of Washington, has been accused of sexually abusing a teenager almost 50 years ago. He cannot be tried under New York state law because of the statute of limitations, but the Archdiocese of New York found the accusation “credible and substantiated.” Francis has told the 87-year-old cardinal he can no longer exercise publicly his priestly ministry. Whether additional penalties will be imposed is unclear. This case shows that in the future no one in the church can expect to continue as a priest after abuse. — Msgr. Carlo Alberto Capella, a 50-year-old official of the Vatican nunciature in Washington, was accused last August by the U.S. State Department of possible violation of laws relating to child pornography. Because he had diplomatic immunity, he could not be tried under U.S. laws. Instead, he was tried and found guilty in a Vatican City State court of possessing and distributing child pornography. He was sentenced to five years in jail and fined 5,000 euros ($5,833). His case will also be examined by the Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith, which can also impose ecclesiastical penalties, including dismissal from the priesthood. https://www.ncronline.org/news/accountability/signs-times/last-bad-news-good-news-catholic-sex-abuse-scandal

childhood home in the Bronx. “She has been thinking about politics since she was a teenager. She would read historical and political books old and new.
