  1. Having spent more than 40 years in the incubators of today’s leftist nonsense, universities, I am skeptical about the power of reasoned argument among today’s ill-educated students. Most of their teachers, like most progressives, are pretty much immune to reason, evidence, and coherent argument, little of which makes it into their courses. As the old gag goes, arguing with a leftist is like playing chess with a pigeon: It knocks over the pieces, craps on the board, then struts around like it won the game. Reasoned argument cuts no ice when confronted with the irrational caprices and gratifying passions of human beings.

    In fact, the assumption behind Haley’s plea is the old Socratic one that virtue is knowledge, that if one knows the good, one will do the good––one of the foundational bad ideas of modernity. When people believe wrong or dangerous ideas, the paradigm goes, that’s because they’re deficient in knowledge. They just need to be better informed of the facts, and better trained to spot incoherent and fallacious arguments.

    The rebuttal of this claim was made by Socrates’ contemporary Euripides, whose sex-maddened character Phaedra says in a moment of lucidity, “We know the good and recognize it, but we cannot do it.” Two thousand years later, Dostoyevsky’s spiteful character Underground explains why: “One’s own free and unfettered volition, one’s own caprice, however wild, one’s own fancy, inflamed sometimes to the point of madness –– that is the one best and greatest good.” We are free to choose our actions and beliefs even if they’re destructive, dangerous, or irrational. The fact that we want them, and they gratify us, and we can choose them is all that counts.

    This faith in reason to sort out the true and the good from mere opinions drives much of our culture. Fooled by the success of science and technology in understanding and manipulating the natural world, we naively think that we can do the same for the human and social world, that we can manufacture Stalin’s “engineers of the soul” and create utopia. Yet for two hundred years the power of irrational, destructive passions and impulses has spattered the pages of history with blood. Materialist science still has no answers to our most profound questions––what should we be and what should we do. And the decline of faith left us vulnerable to political religions, which promised to answer those questions, and create a utopia of social justice and happiness, only now to be enjoyed here on earth.

    Political religions fail because the materialist utopia is literally nowhere, and reason more often its slave than its master. Humans are too complex, irrational, and unpredictable to be the stuff of perfection, and no amount of cultivating reason will change that fact. Germany was the most civilized, sophisticated, and intellectually advanced culture in the 20thcentury, yet it descended into murderous madness. Reason became the slave of evil passions, to the point that it was no longer even recognized as evil. Consider the designer and manufacturer of the high-efficiency ovens used in the death camps. He proudly put the company name, Topf and Sons, on the doors of furnaces specifically designed to quickly turn the bodies of the murdered into ashes. People fired with such “passionate intensity” in their beliefs were not going to be “persuaded” to think otherwise. They responded to pleas for reasoned debate like the young Nazi whom Karl Popper tried to reason with: “You want to argue? I don’t argue, I shoot.”

    This follows Ali’s first hearing before the Ontario Review Board earlier this month after a court found him NCR due to his mental disorder, but acquitted him on terrorism charges. The federal Crown is currently appealing that decision, still arguing that a “lone wolf” falls under Canada’s anti-terror laws.

  8. Fail: 9 Times Globalists Claimed Mass Immigration Is Necessary to Increase GDP (breitbart, Jul 28, 2018)

    “For decades, the big business lobby, ideologically globalist politicians, and economists have claimed that the only route to increasing the United States’ Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is through increasing legal immigration levels.

    On Friday, thanks to President Trump’s “America First” economy, GDP soared to 4.1 percent for the second quarter of 2018, outpacing the first quarter, in which GDP was 2.2 percent.

    While Trump was on the campaign trail throughout 2015 and 2016, he repeatedly said his economic nationalist agenda would bring the U.S. GDP to at least three percent.

    Globalist politicians, business executives, and economists blasted his statements at the time, claiming the only way for the U.S. to increase GDP was through mass immigration and expanding legal immigration levels beyond the already more than 1.5 million mostly low-skilled legal immigrants that are admitted to the country every year.

    Here, Breitbart News chronicles the nine times globalists have claimed GDP growth was impossible under Trump:

    1. Jeb Bush in 2015: We Have to ‘Dramatically Expand’ Immigration to Get 4% GDP

    In 2015, then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush claimed the U.S. would need to “dramatically expand” legal immigration to the country in order to obtain four percent GDP.

    Bush said:

    It seems to me we ought to be strategic about this about how do we create high, sustained economic growth And that is to shift away from family reunification being almost the sole driver of illegal immigration to narrowing that do what every other country has, spouse and minor children. And dramatically expanding immigrants that are coming to work. A guest worker program to deal in the areas where there are shortages.

    2. Marco Rubio, Larry Kudlow in 2012: Mass Immigration Necessary for Economic Growth

    In 2012, when Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was just about to release his now infamous “Gang of Eight” amnesty plan — that would have given amnesty to the majority of the 12 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. and would have increased legal immigration levels — he and then-CNBC host Larry Kudlow pushed the notion that the amnesty and mass immigration plan was necessary for economic growth.

    KUDLOW: I believe, and I’m here to encourage you, immigration reform if done correctly sir, is pro-growth … immigration reform is pro-growth, alright … heck our fertility rate is going down to two percent in this country, we’re going to need workers, both high-end and low-end. Senator Rubio, don’t give up on immigration reform … you are a leader on this. Immigration reform is pro-growth.

    RUBIO: I agree with that concept. And I think the fundamental obstruction that we face is not on the pro-growth side of immigration reform, I think that’s a majority position in America that we have to have a legal immigration system that allows us … to bring in a workforce when necessary.

    3. Paul Ryan in 2013: Mass Immigration ‘Will Help’ U.S. Have ‘Growth We Want’

    During a panel discussion with a local chamber of commerce in 2013, House Speaker Paul Ryan said mass legal immigration through Rubio’s 2013 amnesty was necessary to fill the U.S. with workers and increase economic growth.

    RYAN: And we believe in economic growth. And when we’ve got baby boomers retiring, when we’ve got 10,000 people retiring every day as they will be for 10 years coming, we’re going to need people. And when I look at this from just an economic standpoint, our birth rates are pretty [low] compared to our peers around the world, but they’re not where they need to be. Immigration will help improve that so that we have the labor we need to get the economic growth that we want so that America can be a fast-growing economy in the 21st Century. Immigration helps us get the labor force that we need so that we can have the kind of growth we want.

    4. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: Mass Immigration ‘Simple Way’ to Expand GDP

    In 2013, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria dedicated an entire segment to pushing the idea that mass immigration through Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty is a “simple way” to grow GDP in the U.S.

    Watch the segment here:

    5. Soros-Funded Media: Trump Must ‘Boost Economy’ by Massively Expanding Immigration

    The media outlet ProPublica, which is funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros, touted their research on immigration and GDP last year. The report claimed that the easiest route to achieving four percent GDP under Trump was by importing ten million foreign nationals every year, a drastic increase of legal immigration to the country.

    ProPublica noted their immigration maximalism plan in a graphic:

    6. The Atlantic: ‘Simple Way’ to Increase GDP is through Mass Immigration

    Months ago, senior editor of The Atlantic Derek Thompson wrote that increasing GDP could be done under Trump, but that increasing legal immigration levels was how it could be achieved.

    Thompson wrote:

    So, what’s the trick to raising GDP if productivity levels are subdued? More workers. [Emphasis added]

    Productivity growth is unpredictable, and fertility growth is elusive. What’s left? Well, there’s immigration. Achieving higher growth without another baby boom or accelerating productivity isn’t difficult—if the country simply let in more immigrants each year, GDP growth would almost surely accelerate. More able-bodied workers means more work; more work means more production; and product is, after all, the final noun in GDP. [Emphasis added]

    7. WSJ: Mass Immigration would Drive ‘Faster Economic Growth’

    In its attempt to push Rubio’s mass immigration and mass amnesty “Gang of Eight” plan, the Wall Street Journal released a report in 2013 in which it claimed that “faster economic growth” would be achieved if the U.S. allowed more legal immigration.

    The WSJ report reads:

    Faster economic growth would in turn drive down the budget deficit over the next 10 years by at least $2.5 trillion. Think of it this way: A more generous and more skill-based immigration system would lower the budget deficit three times more than President Obama’s fiscal-cliff tax increase enacted in January. This is merely a single study and hardly the final word, but the conclusions confirm what many others have found. The most comprehensive modern study was completed by the National Research Council in 1997. It found a net positive, albeit small, economic benefit from immigration. [Emphasis added]

    8. Hoover Institute: Importing More H-1B Workers Will ‘Add Billions to GDP’

    The executives of the Hoover Institute released a similar 2013 study pushing Rubio’s amnesty plan in which they claimed that increasing GDP could be accomplished, but only if the U.S. imported more H-1B foreign guest workers to take high-paying white collar U.S. jobs.

    The Hoover Institute wrote at the time:

    Initial estimates put the appropriations cost of the Senate Gang of Eight’s immigration bill (S. 744) at about $17 billion over ten years, leading at least a few politicians to cite cost as a potential reason to oppose its passage. But as Senator Rubio and others have pointed out, that cost does not include the economic benefits and tax revenue that would come from future immigrants. One group in particular, new H-1B visa workers, would add an estimated $456 billion to GDP and $113 billion to federal tax revenue over the next ten years. $244 billion of that increase in GDP would accrue to current US citizens and residents, with the rest going to the new H-1B workers. [Emphasis added]

    9. Michael Bloomberg’s Open Borders Group: Mass Immigration Will ‘Increase GDP’

    Billionaires Rupert Murdoch and Michael Bloomberg’s open borders lobbying organization, the New American Economy, advocated in 2013 for Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty, claiming their own study found that it was necessary to boost GDP. “Our estimates found that benchmark immigration reform would increase GDP by nearly 1 percentage point,” the New American Economy report stated.

    “Included in the estimate were projected changes to the size of the economy (GDP) over the next 11 years,” the report continued. “The Chief Actuary estimated that by 2024 the level of GDP would be 1.63 percent higher than would otherwise be the case and by 2023, the end of the current 10-year budget window, GDP would be 1.6 percent higher than would otherwise be the case.”

    • Mass immigration to any state with a semblance of welfare, will NOT help the GDP but it sure as hell will overload the budget. Ask any country in the EU. But I guess that assumes that they actually care about truth. A country with a huge welfare debt from illegals is a bomb waiting to explode and even that assumes that they were benevolent to start which is assuredly NOT the case. IMO a globalist by definition is a war mongering criminal who pretends to care about humanity but really is only interested in his share of the wealth. Someone remove Soros now!

    • 1. Jeb Bush in 2015: We Have to ‘Dramatically Expand’ Immigration to Get 4% GDP

      Whomever it is that managed to keep the slimy tentacles of this well-browned Texan türd off of America’s tiller deserves a major prize. The Bush Family was barely nudged out by the Clinton Crime Clan, in terms of irreversibly harming America. One just had more legal approbation than the other. End results: Almost totally the same…

      By all comparisons, 0bama was just a Mulatto stumblebum who chanced upon a Communist, lifelong dream to crosswire the USA like no other anti-American moron of his sort, ever.

      Howsabout jist sending all of these carpetbaggers off to the Graybar Hotel?!? Let the General Population sort out all of the unpleasantries for us taxpayers … in their own spare time, eh?

  9. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Friday that a lawsuit by supporters of Donald Trump against San Jose police officers who allegedly failed to protect them from an anti-Trump riot in June 2016 could proceed, defeating the city’s appeal.
    The three-judge panel upheld the lower court’s decision that the officers were not entitled to qualified immunity from suit because they “violated clearly established rights” — assuming, for the moment, that the plaintiff’s factual claims against them were true.

    The lawsuit stems from a riot that took place outside the San Jose Convention Center on June 2, 2016 during and after a speech by then-candidate Trump, just days before the California primary. As Breitbart News reported from San Jose at the time, anti-Trump protesters outside the venue chanted profane slogans and tore up an American flag. Later, as Trump supporters left the rally, the mob chased them, beat them, and attacked them in their cars. One woman was pelted with eggs in full view of the national media.

  10. ‘Extreme’ Mass Migration Drives Historic Population Growth in Swedish Region (breitbart, Jul 28, 2018)

    “Every single municipality in the Swedish county of Kronoberg has seen historic population growth in recent years, with much of the driving force behind the trend coming from an “extreme” level of mass migration.

    The statistics, published by the Kronoberg regional authority, say that “for the most part, the population increase is due to Sweden having historically high immigration”.

    However, while the country has the fourth-largest population growth in the country, authorities say it faces a demographic challenge, with an expected 50 percent increase in residents over the age of 80 between 2017-2032.

    “It is an extreme immigration situation with a strong increase… Now we have to match it to the job market,” said Kronoberg region Development Director Christel Gustafsson, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

    The prospect could be a difficult one as previously released statistics have shown a massive gap between the unemployment rate of native Swedes and those from a migration background. Migrants have an unemployment rate of 21.8 percent, compared to a mere 3.9 percent for native Swedes.

    The strain on social services due to the increased number of new arrivals from overseas has also led to some politicians proposing to raise the age of retirement from 65, in order to pay for the increased costs.

    Last year, it was shown that Sweden had the second highest population growth in the European Union in 2016, with mass migration driving the increase of the total population by 1.5 percent.

    While mass migration has also led to increased costs for social services, it has also led to other deeper societal issues such as a rise in gang crime in heavily migrant-populated areas. According to a study last year, 94.5 percent of Stockholm’s gang criminals come from a migration background.”

  11. NEW YORK — Amid renewed news media attention focusing on the infamous brief meeting at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 between individuals tied to Russia, Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials, it is instructive to review the largely unreported details surrounding the get-together that point to the increasing likelihood of the confab being set up as a dirty trick against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
    Below, in no particular order, are five key details drawn from Breitbart News investigative reporting that raise immediate questions about the possibility of anti-Trump shady business at play in arranging the infamous meeting.

            By David M. Bresnahan – September 25, 1999

            The 1.7 million acres given up by Utah contains the Kaiporowitz coal
            field, which is the largest, undeveloped mine in the United States.
            It has approximately 62 billion tons of low sulfur, clean burning,
            high-compliance coal. It is one of the premier coal fields in the
            United States, perhaps the world, according to Dr. Lee Allison, Utah
            state geologist.

            It is super-compliance coal because it burns so cleanly that it
            beats the requirements of the Clean Air Act — a fact that should make
            environmentalists very happy. It also has a high BTU rating making
            it very powerful.

            There is one other source of high-compliance coal. It is being
            aggressively mined on the island of Kalamantan in Indonesia. The
            mine is reported to be owned by the Red Chinese army and the Lippo
            Group. James and Mochtar Riady, partners in the Lippo Group, have
            been implicated in the growing Clinton campaign election scandal.

            The Tampa Electric Company in Florida is under strict regulation by
            the EPA and has been importing coal from Indonesia because there is
            no domestic source to obtain it from. Other power plants are
            expected to do the same.

            Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said previously the land designated as the
            Grande Staircase of the Escalante is the “Saudi Arabia of coal,”
            because it contains the largest coal and mineral reserve in the U.S.
            The coal now locked away in the monument has a value estimated to be
            $1 trillion. The area containing the coal is ordinary desert with no
            scenic vistas and could have easily been left out of the designation
            for the monument, according to opponents.

            “The Clintons’ Other, Truly Bodacious Mine Boondoggle” By Jack Cashill – April 27, 2015

            The New York Times reported this week on the unseemly transfer of cash from parties interested in a major uranium deal to the Clintons. The Canadian company selling Uranium One to the Russians donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. And Russians tied to the deal gave Bill Clinton $500,000 for a Moscow speech.

            The deal had global consequences. It would put one fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States under Russian control. So critical was the deal that it needed the approval of the U.S. State Department. State approved the deal, and it managed to so without fanfare. Hillary had failed to disclose the Canadian donors to Obama’s White House – this despite her presumed agreement to do just that.

            As outrageous as this deal sounds, however, it was not the Clintons’ most egregious adventure in mining skulduggery. That adventure climaxed nearly twenty years ago – September 18, 1996, to be precise – when then President Bill Clinton unilaterally transformed a 1.7-million-acre slice of southern Utah into a new national monument.

              Ickes, Bruce Lindsey, Bernard Nussbaum and Labor Secretary Alexis Herman.

              The president’s top fund-raisers at the DNC and his re-election campaign officials, Marvin Rosen and Terrence McAuliffe, helped coordinate the selling
              of these taxpayer resources in exchange for political contributions;
              Presidential Chief of Staff Leon Panetta and Deputy Chief of Staff John Podesta ordered the cover-up of these activities; and…

              One guess why this is so important…

              A vast majority of Red China’s coal reserves are, “brown coal”, a sort of soft and more amorphous version than the really fuel-efficient (semi-crystalline) anthracite variety, which America’s hardscrabble Appalachian miners are famous for haven given their lives to deliver our world.

              Amputating Communist China’s … er, supply, of this vital second-tier energy source is vital to driving Beijing into the coffin-corner they’ve struggled for decades so hard to position themselves into.

              Just look up why the Chicoms were the last major nation to finally give up building steam locomotives, despite how their coal reserves (of any sort) indicated that they ought to be operating external-combustion traction engines for another decades or three.

              • PS: Red China’s massive coal reserves are, almost entirely, bituminous (i.e., “soft” or “brown coal”). Semi-crystalline anthracite coal starts at the very highest carbon numbers of bituminous fuel and goes on from there.

                As in: Communist China is one of America’s largest buyers (if not the biggest purchaser) of US anthracite coal.

                Why do the Chicoms want our coal when they have this world’s largest solid-fuel reserves?!? Please see the above critical distinctions regarding bituminous and anthracite formations.

                Additionally, after making over 90% of their own groundwater impotable, Red China now is one of the biggest importers our highest grade anthracite coal because it requires thousands-of-gallons-of-CLEAN-water-per-ton to excavate, process, and wash this extracted fuel.

                Much like how the MME (Muslim Middle East) devours our (water-soaked) wheat, so does Beijing scour out our finest, superbly rinsed, solid fuel reserves.

                What could possibly go wrong?

  12. A new report by Gefira on Sweden reveals a low birth rate for native white Swedes. The findings are based on official data provided by Statistics Sweden SCB and are as follows:

    1. The fertility rate of native white Swedes is much lower (1.6) than the country’s overall fertility rate (1.9);
    2. The Swedish parental system fails to deliver more babies;
    3. The number of children with an Islamic name is growing at a fast pace. Since 2010 it has increased by more than 30%, so that now around 8 to 10% of the newborns in Sweden have an Islamic name.
    4. The native white Swedish population will be a minority within a maximum of 40 years. The same source shows that 22% of the newborns have a non-Western migration background.

    The government is pursuing a systematic re-population policy as the future of the Swedish population is in serious decline.

    The Gefira report predicts by the end of this century that those with Swedish descent will only be one-third of the Swedish population.

      • Yuppies are too self centred too raise children. I see it every day.

        Dear Michelle, please consider using the term, “self-absorbed“. Ultimately, there is nothing wrong with being “self-centered”, “conceited”, “egotistical”, or so many other of the now-stigmatized labels that, at one time, used to indicate a healthy, strong, and once-functioning mind.

        Please read the works of Ayn Rand (e.g., “Philosophy Who Needs It?”) for a better understanding of countless, hyper-destructive, Leftist assaults upon the notion of a healthy Western ego.

        This war against the Caucasian mind-structure is a major psychological front in terms of destroying and demoralizing Western Civilization (please see: Yuri Bezmenov).

        Thank you, NR.

  13. The British government purports to be re-establishing the UK as an independent nation state by leaving the EU, but British power and ability to decide its own policies are continuing to ebb in the real world. The latest evidence of this is the decision by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid to give precedence to the US in putting on trial two alleged Isis members from London, who belonged to the notorious “Beatles” group in Syria that specialised in torturing and beheading their captives.

    The humiliating admission by a country that it is incapable of dealing effectively and legally with its worst criminals is normally made by states like Colombia and Mexico, which extradite drug lords to the US. Their governments are implicitly confessing that they are too feeble and corrupt to punish their most powerful lawbreakers.

    The British authorities are encouraging the Syrian Kurds holding El Shafee Elsheik and Alexanda Kotey to extradite them to the US rather than Britain. The declared motive for this is that there is a better chance of a speedy trial and exemplary sentence before a US court than in a British one, though the record in the US since 9/11 makes this a dubious argument.

    “… Police have reportedly admitted the area is a ‘no-go’ zone, and will only drive through the areas armed and four to a vehicle…”

  15. The dissident party Alternative for Sweden (AfS) came into prominence early this year. It owes its recent rise in part to the dissatisfaction felt by some supporters of the anti-immigration party Sweden Democrats, which was perceived to be taking an insufficiently strong stance against mass migration and Islamization. The more popular the AfS has become, the more vigorously the Powers That Be have worked to suppress it. The most recent action against it was the closure of its YouTube channel.

    Many thanks to K. from Germany for translating this article from the Swedish dissident website Fria Tider:

    AFS: YouTube Has Permanently Deleted Us

    23 July 2018

    YouTube has permanently deleted the channel of the Alternativ för Sverige [Alternative for Sweden, AFS], the party confirmed on Monday. The party is accused by YouTube of “agitation against a population group” [hets mot folkgrupp] because they uploaded a clip about a SVT news anchor who speaks broken Swedish.

  16. Technology giant Peter Thiel argued this week that American universities are as corrupt as the Catholic Church of 500 years ago.
    Speaking to a group of conservative students on Wednesday night, tech legend Peter Thiel compared American universities to the Catholic Church of 500 years ago.

    “The analogy that I’ve used is that perhaps the universities today are as corrupt as the Catholic Church was 500 years ago,” Thiel said. “If you think about the eve of the Reformation when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the church doors, there were all these priests that did not do very much work in much the same way that college professors and administrators are today. You had to pay these indulgences the way that you have to pay runaway tuition today.”

    Thiel went on to argue that American society teaches young people that the quality of their lives will be determined by their success at college. “It’s also a story of salvation,” he added. “If you get a college diploma, you will be saved. If you don’t get one, you will end up in a very bad place. We need a sort of reformation. I’ve often described the universities as the atheist church. It’s not going to reform itself from within. The reformation will come from without.”

    • Nice one! Most of those in my old graduation year who own “chairs” are those deemed(as students) unlikely to be that useful to mankind but very good at not treading on toes. I checked their publications and they had it right. The one bright shining light annoyed far too many of his “superiors” to ever succeed.

  17. Egypt court sentences 75 to death in 2013 sit-in case (abcnews, Jul 28, 2018)

    “Egypt’s state-run media says a court has sentenced 75 people to death, including top figures of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, for their involvement in a 2013 sit-in.

    Saturday’s decision in Cairo Criminal Court will now be referred to the Grand Mufti — the country’s top theological authority — for his non-binding opinion on the sentences. He usually approves the court’s decision.

    Sentencing for more than 660 others was set for Sept. 8, according to state-run Al-Ahram news website.

    The case involves 739 defendants, including the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie and photojournalist Mahmoud Abu Zeid. Charges range from murder to damaging public property.

    The 2013 sit-in supported former Islamist President Mohammed Morsi who was militarily ousted following mass protests against his divisive one-year rule. Morsi hailed from the Brotherhood. The sit-in was violently dispersed.”

      • Egypt has millions to execute before there can be any honest claim about “religious freedom” in that particular Islamic pisshole. When these Islamo-scum-suckers can effortlessly insert any of the Giza pyramids in whatever orifice of choice (of theirs), maybe then I might begin to believe them.

      • They are MFs, SOBs, AHs and anything else vile you can come up with, the problem is they are several orders of magnitude better then any alternative political group in Egypt.

        • It’s true.
          Decent Egyptians will be the first to say it. They’d vote for Sisi in even legit elections. Of course elections are just an opportunity for violent acting-out, so they’re best avoided altogether.

  18. Trevor Noah Asks Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez How She Plans To Pay For Her Agenda And Her Answer Was Typical

    Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” asked Democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez how she plans to pay for her agenda Thursday and she said tax the rich and slash military spending.

    Ocasio-Cortez began by bragging about her meeting with a Nobel Prize-winning economist and claimed her ideas could net the United States trillions of dollars. (RELATED: Trevor Noah Says ‘All Hope Is Dead’ After Justice Kennedy Retirement)

    “This is an excellent, excellent question,” she replied. “I sat down with a Nobel Prize economist last week — I can’t believe I can say that, it’s really weird — But one of the things that we saw is, if people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy — for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he pays as much as his secretary paid, 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid — if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent … if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there.”

    She also said it would take $3 trillion to $4 trillion and a carbon tax to create a “renewable energy economy” and claimed the Trump tax cut bill prevents the wealthiest Americans from paying “their fair share.”

    “One of the wide estimates is that it’s going to take $3 trillion to $4 trillion to transition us to 100 percent renewable economy,” she continued.

    • One of the wide estimates is that it’s going to take $3 trillion to $4 trillion to transition us to 100 percent renewable economy,” she continued.

      Please do tell where in holy hell that SIGNIFICANT FRACTION of the global economy is going to come from?!?

      Who are these wankers and why do they have even a minute’s credibility?!?

      • I think that some of the networks agree with her and the others are showing her to scare people away from the Dems.

  19. How Silicon Valley Became a Den of Spies

    The West Coast is a growing target of foreign espionage. And it’s not ready to fight back.

    SAN FRANCISCO—In the fall of 1989, during the Cold War’s wan and washed-out final months, the Berlin Wall was crumbling—and so was San Francisco. The powerful Loma Prieta earthquake, the most destructive to hit the region in more than 80 years, felled entire apartment buildings. Freeway overpasses shuddered and collapsed, swallowing cars like a sandpit. Sixty-three people were killed and thousands injured. And local Soviet spies, just like many other denizens of the Bay Area, applied for their share of the nearly $3.5 billion in relief funds allocated by President George H.W. Bush.

    FBI counterintelligence saw an opening, recalled Rick Smith, who worked on the Bureau’s San Francisco-based Soviet squad from 1972 to 1992. When they discovered that a known Soviet spy, operating under diplomatic cover, had filed a claim, Smith and several other bureau officials posed as federal employees disbursing relief funds to meet with the spy. The goal was to compromise him with repeated payments, then to turn him. “We can offer your full claim,” Smith told the man. “Come meet us again.” He agreed.

  20. Are Russian-spy hookers targeting tech leaders and VCs at infamous Silicon Valley ‘cougar nights’?

    Suspected Russian “honeypot” prostitutes targeting tech execs and VCs in an infamous Silicon Valley lounge provide a salacious illustration of the region’s spy problem — but much of the espionage here looks like business as usual, according to a new report.

    The West Coast is seeing a “full-on epidemic of espionage” centered largely on Silicon Valley’s technology industry, the report said.

    • The West Coast is seeing a “full-on epidemic of espionage” centered largely on Silicon Valley’s technology industry, the report said.

      Somewhere back in my extensive collection of Cold War-Era ephemera is a 1982 Lockheed (NOT Lockheed-Martin) poster exhorting the Valley’s denizens to, “Take it off before liftoff.”

      Referring to, removing your high technology company badge before going out and partying at any of the many, varied, and extensive watering-hole networks or “meat-markets” (i.e., disco lounges and pickup joints) that used to speckle Silicon Valley’s once-thoroughly sodden cocktail-hour landscape.

      Yust wearing a high-tech badge mysteriously increased your popularity with all sorts of inexplicably attracted (and attractive) Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and even a few Russian, girls. Not that they new a bloody thing about real high-tech. Go figure. “Let’s just talk about sex!”.

      As in: During my management of a thin film coating laboratory, we’d occasionally provide facility tours to Japanese clients and they were almost excruciatingly shameless about wanting to bring in cameras (a major no-no) and generally poke about in cabinets if our backs were turned for more than a few milliseconds.

      SIDEBAR: It took almost 30 minutes to recall the old vernacular term, “meat-market”. It just goes to show how unpopular the entire scene was with me back then (and even today).

      That said, ongoing Silicon Valley corporate espionage is new only to those without any pubes (which includes way too many existing “coders” and “software engineers”). Talk to some of the satellite-builders and IC (Integrated Circuit) fabricators, and the tune you’ll hear from them won’t include any of the psycho-babble baffle-gab that you’ve been fed for the last several decades.

  21. Donkey herds are dwindling as hungry Venezuelans slaughter them for food

    A few years ago, there were so many donkeys, or burros, in the Venezuelan state of Falcón that they were a problem — herds everywhere, causing highway crashes and blocking airport runways.

    But over the past three years, the herds have shrunk dramatically as thousands of burros have been slaughtered for their meat by Venezuelans suffering through a near-famine.

    “There’s no more burros here,” said Odalys Martinez, a resident of the Paraguana Peninsula in northern Falcón.

    The collapse of the Venezuelan economy is radically changing the eating habits in the oil-producing country, where large sectors of the population are being forced to pick through garbage and slaughter domestic animals to sate their hunger.

      Just ask any indigenous Vietnamese migrants why there aren’t so many pigeons or squirrels in their public parks. Mmmm… pigeon and squirrel pho or spring rolls! With satay sauce or nuoc mam! Any Sriracha sauce? Not enough to ever make me squirt!

      PS: As might be apparent, I pretty much detest Sriracha. There are many sweet – salty, spicy – sweet, and sweet & sour Asian combinations I ardently adore (yust try Philippine Sabaw na Sinigang and git back to me). Regardless, Sriracha is a total turnoff, much like all of Islam…

  22. Putin: Russia Is Not Rejecting the U.S. Dollar, Just Being Cautious

    OAN Newsroom
    UPDATED 3:10 PM PT – Fri. July 27, 2018

    Russian President Vladimir Putin denies reports the Kremlin is trying to rid itself of American currency. This comes after the Treasury Department recorded Russia as having fewer holdings in U.S. cash.

    Putin said Russia is simply taking precautions because of sanctions, and what he calls ‘unlawful restrictions.’

    Those sanctions date back to 2014, over Crimea’s Annexation and Ukraine.

    While visiting South Africa, the Russian President said the dollar is a universal reserve currency.

    “We are not planning to make any sudden moves, we are not planning on rejecting the dollar, we use it and will continue to use it to the extent financial authority in the United States will not prevent us from using the dollar in payments.” -Russian President Vladimir Putin

    Russia’s central bank currently has almost $460 million, and has been adding gold and Chinese yuan.

    Since Russia was accused of interfering with the 2016 election, the U.S. has imposed more sanctions.

  24. Iran starts the fight in the Red Sea
    By J.E. Dyer July 28, 2018

    The exchange of words between the Trump administration and senior leaders in Iran got a lot of press this week. On Sunday, Iranian President Rouhani warned America against courting the “mother of all wars,” his characterization of what war with Iran would be. In a speech to a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani reiterated a previous oblique implication that Iran would prevent all oil exports from the Persian Gulf, if the U.S. tried to block Iranian exports.

    A senior military officer made the threat more explicitly:

    • It is important to read this article, she lays out what happened in the attack on the oil tanker in the Red Sea and what the probable future is based on the Iranian threats and this attack.

      The Iranians are fight a proxy war with Saudi and may be escalating that war to shut down the Saudi oil trade to Europe. Yes Saudi anc sell to the Far East and Europe can buy from the US, Russia and South America. This will restore the economic hit that Russia took with the LNG contract between the EU and the US and will disrupt world trade for a few months. This will require the US to react because we are the power that is enforcing freedom of the seas and if we don’t react there will be more and more attacks in various areas to allow local nations and governments take control of choke points and charge money for the passage.

      Above I mentioned Russia and the economic gain this would give them but I see more of a Chinese hand in this move then a Russian one. This will move more oil to China and if the Iran’s through the Yemani’s can take control of the Red Sea has grave implications for the Far Eastern nations along the 9 dash line that depend on seaborne trade to get most if not all of their overseas resources. As Dyer points out we have several possible actions and reactions we can take and if we go proactive we can avert the growth of this mess.

      • Crikey! I’m pretty good at my geography. All the same, it took this article to make me realize that the entire Saudi Peninsula is a pin-pulled grenade that just hasn’t had its spoon released.

        Time to carpet-bomb Yemen and stop these midget morons from interdicting global trade that’s worth a gazillion times more than their entire annual GDP.

        Why is this world so kind to such complete and total maroons?!?

        • Because we became “too civilized”, the left screamed so much about gunboat diplomacy that people are afraid to do anything that is in their self interest. Which is the same reason the Europeans are afraid to do anything about the Islamic INvaders.

        • It isn’t just Yemen, though you’re right, Yemen should be reduced to a manageable nub.

          I’m not thrilled with these uppity little sheikhdoms. They could be tamed more easily than wooed. They’d like us better for it, too.

      • Also notice that Saudis and the others aren’t on the same page. UAE has its agenda, Oman and Qatar might not even let us use our own bases! (As if they could stop us…)

  25. I’ve seen quite a few headlines about “Duterte OKs bill creating Muslim autonomous region in south”

    One guy wises up asking if it favorscertain religion, against the Constitution

    • … it’s like locking in some tumor to fester.

      Without any disrespect, I’m nevertheless obliged to ask, Tama, “And your point is?”

      Wherever it manifests, Islam does its level best to metastasize like some sort of super-melanoma. Fortunately, the West has expended trillions of well-spent dollars in its efforts to mature several varieties of different (highly effective) “radiological treatments”…

  26. Online prediction site taking bets on when Trump will be assassinated
    By LU Staff July 27, 2018

    If there’s any consolation for the president and his supporters, it’s in the fact that other rich, high-profile figures have also been targeted in these “office pool”-type arrangements, and not all of them are Republicans. (Other VIPs marked for assassination include Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and financier Warren Buffett.)

    The outfit accepting the wagers is a newly established site called Augur, and according to the Independent, it “allows people to choose an event to predict, create a market for it, and then trade shares on the outcome of the event. ‘Anything is fair game,’ the website states, ‘from the next presidential election to the success of a company’s product.’”

    While the site was not designed with an eye toward predicting the assassination of high-visibility figures, the possibility that it could be used to that dark end was baked into the cake. Notes Augur’s website:

    • Online prediction site taking bets on when Trump will be assassinated

      Howsabout online bettors also taking odds on when the Augur website owners also happen to stop some totally unwished-for slugs (not the banana-type)? This might really “stir-the-pot” when it comes to these slime-balls slyly (i.e., overtly, in mixed interpretation) encouraging political assassinations of America’s legitimately elected officials.

      That they might suffer for their own instigations?!?

      Quelle horreur!

  27. Daily Caller News Foundation, Judicial Watch ask federal judge to preserve Comey private emails
    By Daily Caller News Foundation July 27, 2018

    The Daily Caller News Foundation and Judicial Watch asked a federal judge Thursday to order the Department of Justice to preserve all of former FBI Director James Comey’s personal emails that were related to two Freedom of Information Act requests.

    Both groups filed their motion before U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Colleen Judge Kollar-Kotelly, who was nominated by former President Ronald Reagan.

    Judicial Watch and TheDCNF filed suit against the Justice Department on April 25 as part of the FOIA requests, which seek records of Comey’s meetings and conversations with then-President Barack Obama, as well as summaries of conversations the former FBI director held with then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Sens. John McCain and Chuck Schumer.

    The new motion asks the court to order the Justice Department to preserve all of Comey’s records related to the requests to ensure they are not destroyed.

  30. Illegal Migrant Sea Crossings to Europe in 2018 Break 55,000 (breitbart, Jul 28, 2018)

    “Migrant sea crossings to Europe in 2018 have broken 55,000, with Spain outstripping Italy and Greece as the number one point of arrival for the first time following the installation of a Socialist government in Madrid.

    Numbers overall are down from 2017, 2016, and 2015, when German chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door invitation to ‘refugees’ from Syria saw hordes of illegal migrants from a host of different countries surge across Europe’s poorly guarded maritime and internal borders.

    The measures which have been deployed to bring the external border under control — namely deals with the Islamist government in Turkey and Libya’s precariously positioned authorities to stop more boats from departing — do not offer long-term solutions to the migrant crisis, with the EU’s security depending largely upon the goodwill of erratic and unstable third countries.

    There are significant signs of strain on the Western Mediterranean Route through Greece and, less often, Bulgaria — where the border it patrolled aggressively by both the state and civilian militias — as migrants exploit the Greco-Turkish land border marked by the Evros river.

    This border was not included in the multi-billion euro EU-Turkey deal, and migrants who cross it are not included in the UN Migration Agency/International Organization for Migration totals above as, while people-smugglers do generally bring migrants across the Evros by boat, they are not technically sea crossings.

    The IoM sea figures also exclude land crossings via Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish exclaves on the coast of North Africa, which are frequent targets of massed assaults by groups of African migrants.

    These are often extremely violent, with around 600 out of an estimated 700 successfully breaking through Ceuta’s perimeter with Morocco on July 26th after blinding border guards with burning quicklime and cutting through fences with homemade blowtorches and battery-powered radial saws in a co-ordinated assault…”

  31. Names of five teenage killers are made public as they are found guilty of murdering 15-year-old boy hours after he helped his mother make sandwiches for homeless people (dailymail, Jul 28, 2018)

    “Five teenagers who ‘tortured’ a 15-year-old boy to death in an alleyway behind his home can be named for the first time after they were handed life sentences today.

    Kai Fisher-Dixon, Shuayb Mahomud, Tremayne Gray, Omarion Stephens and Abdulqaliq Mohamed stabbed Jacob Abraham to death on December 7 last year.

    Hours before the fatal attack on Hurst Drive in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, Jacob had been helping his mum make sandwiches for homeless people.

    He was found dying from multiple stab wounds by his brother Isaac, who had gone out to look for him when he had not returned.

    Jacob was knifed eight times in the legs and once in the arm. He died at about 10pm of a wound to the right thigh which caused massive bleeding.

    His five attackers, three of whom were just 14 years old at the time, were captured by CCTV cameras running away from the scene.

    The boys, who are all from Enfield in north London, all denied murder but were found guilty by a jury after a five-week trial at St Albans Crown Court on June 25.

    On Friday, they were handed life sentences by Mr Justice Edis.

    He said Gray and Stephens must serve at least 14 years, Mohamed 13 years and Fisher-Dixon and Mahomud 12 years.

    They can be named for the first time after the judge lifted anonymity orders preventing the publication of their names…”

      Femoral artery puncture and a swift bleed out. Poor lad. At least it was quick…

  32. A US-backed Kurdish alliance is holding talks in Damascus with Syrian government representatives with an eye on Turkish ambitions in Syria.
    The ancient adage, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” is once again being put into action on the ground in Syria, where a seven-year civil war has seen regional and global powers forced into sometimes unlikely agreements and accommodations.

    This week, representatives of the US-backed, Kurdish-led SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) traveled from northern and northeastern Syria to the capital, Damascus, for the first time, for talks with officials from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

    The SDF, an alliance of predominantly Kurdish fighters, as well as Arab militias, was formed in 2015 to defend Syria’s northeastern region from jihadist groups such as the Islamic State (IS) group and al Qaeda-affiliated militias.

    “Well as you already know if you’ve been paying any attention at all, the Southern Poverty Law Center is a fraudulent enterprise,” said Carlson. “It’s a left-wing political group that uses ‘hate crime’ designations to target its ideological enemies and to crush people.”

    As a member of the third-placed progressive Pakistan People’s Party, led by the son of assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, Mr Malani said he will now likely travel to Islamabad in opposition to Mr Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

  36. Populist Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has ordered that benefits for asylum seekers be substantially reduced, saying the money saved will be given to police working overtime shifts instead.
    The new policy will greatly reduce the amount of money asylum seekers receive but will also limit access to integration courses for those who have been approved for a residency permit, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports.

    “More controls and less spending. In the area of immigration, things are finally changing, as promised,” Salvini, who leads the populist League, said.

    Currently, migrants receive between 35 to 45 euros per day from Italian taxpayers but Salvini’s new policy will see that amount reduced to around 20 euros per day, with migrants costing taxpayers a total of three billion euros per year.

    Salvini also met Rome’s Five Star Movement (M5S) Mayor Virginia Raggi on Wednesday to discuss the issue of illegal Roma squatter camps in the Italian capital pledging to close the camps and return the public space back to the citizens of the city.
