Pamela Geller: Obama’s FBI ‘wanted us dead’

Pamela Geller, a free-speech activist and harsh critic of Islamic supremacism, has charged that the FBI, under Barack Obama, likely wanted her dead.
Geller, the author of “Stop the Islamization of America,” said in a radio interview that she based her assessment on a new report that the FBI apparently knew of the planned terrorist attack on the conference she held in Garland, Texas, in 2015, but it did nothing to stop it.
“This is egregious. I submit to you the FBI, under the Obama administration, wanted us dead,” she said on WABC New York’s “Bernie and Sid Show.
“I want to know why there was not a(n) (FBI) SWAT team there. I want to know why there was no one there, to repel this attack. It is shocking.” Read more here: http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/pamela-geller-obamas-fbi-wanted-us-dead/

Chelsea Clinton flips out over Trump hat on Lincoln


The Twittersphere is in hysterics after former first daughter Chelsea Clinton asked if a photo of former President Abraham Lincoln wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat was Photoshopped.
Chelsea spotted the photo on a Republican Party dinner program for an annual event at Mar-a-Lago held March 24. The program featured an image of Lincoln wearing the hat made famous by President Donald Trump.
On Saturday, Chelsea – appearing to be concerned about the legitimacy of the image – flipped out on Twitter.
“Please tell me this is photoshopped. Please?” she pleaded.

Occam’s Razor – If You Listen To Every Nunes Public Statement in Sequence…

If you listen to Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes public interviews in the exact time-line sequence, from March 22nd to now, a clear picture emerges.

The “tipster” source is unknown. However, the actual intelligence report(s) he reviewed, which contained the unmasked surveillance information, was simply President Obama’s daily intelligence Briefing(s).

It appears, most likely, someone (aka mysterious tipster), simply told Nunes which dates to review. Hence the Executive Branch SCIF was utilized. The ACTUAL intelligence product itself was the Executive Office Presidential Daily Intelligence Briefing.

Most likely a Clapper (ODNI), Rogers (NSA), Comey (FBI Counter Intel), and Brennan (CIA) work product. Remember, President Obama preferred written intel briefings which he reviewed from his secure iPad.

Reconciling the intelligence report that Nunes reviewed was actually the Presidential Daily Briefing (intel work product) also explains all the variant political concern angles.

Trump slams Clintons, ‘hoax’ Russia story in Twitter tirade

President Trump tweeted up a storm on Monday night — blasting the House Intelligence Committee for not investigating the Clintons and also declaring the “Trump Russia story” a “hoax.”
The tirade came amid reports that Rep. Devin Nunes, who is head of the House Intelligence Committee, had secretly visited the White House a day before announcing that members of Team Trump had “incidentally” been caught in surveillance by US agencies.
“Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian ‘reset,’ praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!” the president wrote in a pair of tweets. Read more here: http://nypost.com/2017/03/27/trump-slams-clintons-hoax-russia-story-in-twitter-tirade/

Nunes Calls Comey, Rogers For "Closed Session" After Finding "Concerning Info" In Intel Reports | Zero Hedge


Last night we highlighted a Fox News story which suggested that Devin Nunes expected the NSA to deliver a "smoking gun" which would prove that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, as early as today.

Moments ago, Nunes fanned that speculation by holding an impromptu press conference announcing that he'll call both FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee to discuss topics which "they couldn't answer in a public setting."

Here is Nunes's full statement: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-24/nunes-calls-comey-rogers-closed-session-after-finding-concerning-info-intel-reports

Report: Possible 'Smoking Gun' Shows Obama Admin. Spied on Trump Team

The House Intelligence Committee is expecting a potential “smoking gun” showing the Obama administration spied on the transition team of President Donald Trump and possibly Trump himself, Fox News reported.

The report comes two days after committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed that he obtained information that surveillance was being used on Trump’s team. Fox reported that multiple Capitol Hill sources delivered that information to him.

The sources told Fox’s James Rosen, who himself was monitored by the Obama Department of Justice in 2013, that the information leaves no doubt the Obama administration was spying on Trump during legitimate surveillance on foreign targets. Key American citizens were “unmasked” and their names appeared in the intelligence.

Soros, Left-Wing Activists Plot Trump Resistance

A network of wealthy liberal donors aligned with billionaire George Soros are meeting in Washington, D.C. with left-wing activists and political players for four days this week to strategize how best to undermine the Trump agenda and “restore progressive government.”
Although the spring investors conference for Democracy Alliance is closed to the press, The Daily Caller was able to obtain a copy of the conference’s agenda, marked “confidential.”
The conference is scheduled to take from March 22-25, but the last two days are exclusive to “current [Democracy Alliance] Partners and Foundation Subscribers,” according to the agenda.

A conservative news crack-up? Things just got real for some partisan personalities.

These should be high times for conservative news outlets, what with like-minded officials and operatives in control of virtually every important office in Washington.
And yet the news about conservative news organs lately has been a parade of dysfunction, a messy portrait in pixels. Specifically:
●The Independent Journal Review (IJR), a politics-and-policy news site geared toward conservative millennials, retracted a story last week that suggested, without evidence, that former president Barack Obama had pressured a federal judge in Hawaii to rule against President Trump’s latest travel ban. The site acknowledged that the innuendo-laden story was wrong and suspended three staff members — chief content officer Benny Johnson, writer Kyle Becker and editor Becca Lower.

Blog: Why is Sears dying?

Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why?
Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. Read more here:

Trump says Utah man killed in London terrorist attack was a 'great American'

President Trump on Thursday reacted to the news that a Utah man was killed in Wednesday's terrorist attack outside Parliament, saying: "A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack."

"My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends," Trump tweeted. Cochran and his wife Melissa — who was injured in the attack — were in Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, according to a family statement issued by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"Our family is heartbroken to learn of the death of our brother- and son-in-law, Kurt W. Cochran, who was a victim of Wednesday's terrorist attack in London. Kurt was a good man and a loving husband to our sister and daughter, Melissa," the family said.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack outside Parliament and on Westminster Bridge. Five people, including the attacker, died in the attack.

Here's what Trump supporters mean when they talk about the 'deep state'

For starters, what does the term mean?

Where are the origins of the deep state?

Does this notion exist in other countries?

What have Trump’s allies said about a deep state?

So, is there actually a deep state in America?

And yet conservatives aren’t the only ones alleging there’s a deep state.

Have past administrations talked about a deep state?

A New McCarthyism in Hollywood?

I’m seeing a lot of fear now.
I don’t mean among my Hollywood colleagues, most of whom feel immune to the dangers facing some of the less privileged members of society. But it’s there among my Muslim friends, one of whom was prescient enough to anglicize his name after 9/11, and it’s even more present among some of the undocumented students in The Hollywood Reporter’s Mentorship Program.
I can tell you from personal experience, there are few things as wrenching as talking to a 19-year-old who’s lived here most of her life and considers herself American to the core, and who needs to discuss her options should DACA be eliminated. (DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a program introduced by Obama for those who came to the U.S. as undocumented children; it allows them to work and study on a temporary basis.) There’s a 50-50 chance DACA will be thrown out by the new administration, and with it three-quarters-of-a-million or more young people who believe in America, but are no longer sure America believes in them. . . . http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/a-new-mccarthyism-hollywood-987245

The Latest: NSA knocks down WH claim of British spying

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on a congressional inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election (all times local):
11:25 a.m.
Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, is denying that the British intelligence community was ever asked to conduct electronic surveillance on President Donald Trump at the behest of former President Barack Obama.
Earlier this month, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer referred to unsubstantiated allegations made by a Fox News analyst that GCHQ, the British electronic intelligence agency, had helped Obama wiretap Trump. The British intelligence agency flatly denied it happened. . . https://www.yahoo.com/news/latest-trump-says-dems-made-russian-story-111816840--politics.html

Secret Service Theft Caught On Surveillance Video and Thief Knew What He Was After

The thief who swiped a Secret Service agent’s laptop targeted the agent in question and knew exactly what he was after ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

U.S. congressman calls for preparedness for pre-emptive strike on N. Korea

WASHINGTON, March 19 (Yonhap) -- The United States should be prepared for a pre-emptive strike on North Korea as the communist nation is getting closer to perfecting capabilities to deliver a nuclear missile to the U.S., a House lawmaker said Sunday.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) made the remark in an interview with Fox News, days after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that all options were on the table in dealing with the communist nation and the military option is one of them.
"The closer that the North Korean regime gets to being able to deliver a nuclear weapon, we're going to have to be in a position to take some type of pre-emptive strike. We hope that it doesn't come to that. But this is an unhinged regime. You have 20 million people, you know, living in extreme poverty," Nunes said.................... http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/national/2017/03/20/0301000000AEN20170320000400315.html

Trump Budget Proposes Killing All Funding for PBS, NPR and National Endowment for the Arts

President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination.
Trump’s budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a relatively small source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post.
The budget would also eliminate the budgets for both national endowments, which stood at $148 million each in 2016, as well as $230 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which supports libraries and museums. Additional cuts would affect two tourist mainstays in Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian Institution and the National Gallery of Art.

An Historic Opportunity

“No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!” —Ronald Reagan
President Trump presents his first budget to Congress today (Thursday). It is, as The Washington Post points out, “historic” because if adopted it would be the biggest contraction in the federal government since the end of World War II. Predictably, a Post story focuses on the number of federal workers it estimates could lose their jobs, rather than on whether those jobs and the programs associated with them are necessary.
The biggest drivers of debt remain entitlement programs and true to his campaign promise, the president is not touching those, at least for now. His challenge will be to ask Congress to eliminate failed programs, because too many members rely on campaign contributions from lobbyists with an interest in maintaining the status quo. . . . https://patriotpost.us/opinion/48010

Student op-ed: Yes, milk is racist - The College Fix

All of us have been “so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk,” Diaz writes, “that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.”
But … aren’t our dietary guidelines science? And aren’t progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump?

Company creates a ‘snowflake test’ for job applicants and the word is spreading | BizPac Review

Job applicants for a Connecticut-based marketing company have a unique “snowflake” test to pass before being hired.
The Silent Partner Marketing firm is taking on liberal “snowflakes” in an effort to weed out the hundreds of applications they have received. The company has developed a survey to vet potential employees by asking key questions about themselves.
“I needed a filter to sort through all of that,” Kyle Reyes, CEO of Silent Partner Marketing said on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. He explained that he was looking for employees who would fit the “culture” of the company and the clients they represent.
Some questions sure to trigger liberals include “What does America mean to you?” http://www.bizpacreview.com/2017/03/15/company-creates-snowflake-test-job-applicants-word-spreading-459477

EXCLUSIVE: FBI’s Own Political Terror Plot; Deputy Director and FBI Brass Secretly Conspired to Wage Coup Against Flynn & Trump

Mere days before Gen. Michael Flynn was sacked as national security advisor, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe gathered more than a dozen of his top FBI disciples to plot how to ruin Flynn’s aspiring political career and manufacture evidence to derail President Donald Trump, according to FBI sources.

McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump,” according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not.

This was one of several such meetings held in seclusion among key FBI leaders since Trump was elected president, FBI sources confirm. At the congregation where McCabe went off the political rails and vowed to destroy Flynn and Trump, there were as many as 16 top FBI officials, inside intelligence sources said. No lower-level agents or support personnel were present. . . . http://truepundit.com/exclusive-fbis-own-political-terror-plot-deputy-director-and-fbi-brass-secretly-conspired-to-wage-coup-against-flynn-trump-2/

They Called a Product 'Pink Slime.' Now ABC and a Top Reporter Must Face the Music

(Newser) – Diane Sawyer escapes repercussions, but accusations against ABC News and reporter Jim Avila stand after a South Dakota state judge cleared the way to trial for a Beef Products lawsuit against the network for calling its meat product "pink slime." The Wall Street Journal and Reuters report that Judge Cheryle Gering rejected ABC's attempts to have the 2012 defamation complaint dismissed. Gering ruled that a jury could find "clear and convincing evidence" that Avila and the network were "reckless" and "engaged in purposeful avoidance of the truth," including not doing due diligence on iffy informants.
Per MarketWatch, Gering added that a jury could also conclude that ABC wanted to put a "negative spin" on the segment even before it started digging into the story. Beef Products says hundreds of jobs disappeared when it was forced to shutter three of its four plants after the "pink slime" reports, which a company lawyer called "fake news" in front of Gering in January. Because of South Dakota's strict "veggie hate crime" laws, which offer triple damages when the safety of a food product is falsely disparaged, ABC could be slammed with nearly $6 billion in damages. The judge noted that she cleared Sawyer because, as the news anchor, she would've ostensibly not had as much to do with research as others working on the segment. . . . http://www.newser.com/story/239798/pink-slime-trial-a-go-for-reporter-abc-judge.html

Ex-Trump Aide Roger Stone Says He Is Target of ‘Deep State’ Assassination Plot

Longtime Donald Trump confidante, Republican operative and serial hat-wearer Roger Stone claims he is the target of a sinister plot to silence him ahead of next week’s Congressional investigations into the Russian hacking scandal.
Mr Stone made a series of sensational claims overnight after allegedly being involved in a hit-and-run on his way to Orlando to promote his latest book on the US President.
The controversial former Trump adviser told popular conspiracy theorist and Infowars host Alex Jones that his car was “T-boned” by “deep state” actors on Wednesday morning in an attempt to assassinate him before he could testify at the hearings, which start on Monday.
“They have poisoned me, they have smeared me, and someone in a car tried to kill me,” Mr Stone told Jones via satellite during an appearance on the show shortly after the incident. https://heatst.com/politics/ex-trump-aide-roger-stone-says-he-is-target-of-deep-state-assassination-plot/

Congress Demands Investigation Into Obama Admin Meddling inForeign Elections

A group of leading senators is calling on newly installed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to "extreme and sometimes violent political activists" that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.
The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration's State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.
A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).

Blog: The Clintons take tax deduction for Bill’s used underwear

The Clintons deducted from the federal income tax returns the “value” of Bill’s used underwear that the Clintons supposedly donated to charities.
As reported by Lloyd Grove, Washington Post, on 12/28/1993:
“Several experts were consulted about Clinton's tax-deductible donations, especially of underwear. Paul Offenbacher, a longtime Washington-area tax accountant, said it is highly unusual to take an itemized deduction on donated underwear; indeed, he had never heard of such a thing. Adelphi University psychology professor George D. Goldman, a New York-based psychoanalyst who studies the unconscious symbolic meanings in human behavior, said the donations are, at the very least, fodder for intriguing speculation…
"We don't get too much underwear here; I don't think people want that too much," said Joe Cheslow, a senior resident at the Union Rescue Mission, a haven for homeless people in Little Rock, Ark., that has been a frequent beneficiary of the Clintons' tax-deductible largess. The mission thrift shop has been known to sell used underwear, displayed in bins, at 95 cents a pair….....http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/10/the_bubbas_take_tax_deduction_for_bubbas_used_underwear.html

In the format of the election debate, which saw a number of short rounds of discussion between the leaders of the many political parties contesting Wednesday’s election, Mr. Wilders was allowed to introduce a motion which would then be debated. Revealing he had selected to discuss Islam, Wilders said he’d picked the topic not out of a lack of respect for his opponent, or that he was trying to trip him up, but given it was the last televised debate before the polls opened he thought it should be on the most important topic facing the Netherlands today.

What We Know About the Obama Foundation, as Former President's Plans Take Shape - RealClearLife

As his successor puts a very different stamp on the American political landscape, observers in the Beltway and beyond are looking to see what former President Obama is going to do next.
After a brief, high-profile vacation following the end of his two-term presidency, the Democrat announced the launch of a charity, the Obama Foundation. But aside from a website with a cryptic video and a call for supporters’ opinions to go with donations, details are shrouded in secrecy.
The much-anticipated foundation is clearly still in planning mode. Experts estimate that it could take more than $1.5 billion alone to construct the Obama Presidential Center, which will include the foundation, presidential library, and museum, in the Jackson Park neighborhood of Chicago’s South Side. . . . http://www.realclearlife.com/architecture/obama-foundation/

The Case Against Gorsuch: Things Fall Apart

Well, the best and the brightest on the Left are amassing their forces for a full-scale frontal assault on President Trump’s first Supreme Court nomination. The problem for them is, they don’t have much ammunition.
Former President Obama’s favorite think tank, the Center for American Progress (CAP), almost tried to do it algebraicly in their seminar on “Trump, Gorsuch, and the Concentration of Economic Power.” The problem, as that formulation suggests, is that even if you buy the basic premise, you have to admit that the “economic power” got concentrated under their favorite president.
The panelists who kicked around the topic didn’t have much more luck when they got “into the weeds,” as it were. For example, Deepak Gupta claimed that Judge Gorsuch alleged that “class actions were nothing but a free ride to riches.” Actually, that’s not a hard case to make. Gupta also claimed that “cash-strapped public administrators” were struggling to do their jobs in regulating business. This is only possible to say with a straight face at CAP, where they never have to encounter any of these beleaguered bureaucrats. . . . https://www.academia.org/the-case-against-gorsuch-things-fall-apart/

I Had Dinner With the Afghan Ambassador. What He Said About the Differences Between Trump, Obama Is Stunning

President Trump is already turning the world upside down in international diplomatic circles by taking a markedly different approach to global politics than his predecessor.
It comes as no surprise that with each new American administration, a diplomatic chain reaction is felt the world over. The Bush years were marked by a heavy-handed, and sometimes ham-handed, forceful approach to American diplomacy. From NATO, to pan-Asia relationships, to the Middle East, Bush dealt from a position of cultural strength and a philosophy firmly rooted in Pax Americana. Was this approach successful?

What If Trump And Hillary Swapped Genders? Reenactment Of Debates With Genders Switched 'Shocks' Liberal Audience

In a remarkable and revealing experiment about the impact of gender in the 2016 election, two self-described "liberal" professors joined forces to put on an "ethnodrama" based on key moments of the presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, in which actors of the opposite sex played the roles of the two candidates, exactly mimicking their every move and intonation. The results of the gender swapping experiment stunned both professors and the mostly liberal audiences who attended the performances.
NYU reports that while both professors say they "began the project assuming that the gender inversion would confirm what they’d each suspected watching the real-life debates: that Trump’s aggression—his tendency to interrupt and attack—would never be tolerated in a woman, and that Clinton’s competence and preparedness would seem even more convincing coming from a man," the result of the gender reversal was almost exactly the opposite...... http://www.dailywire.com/news/14203/what-if-trump-and-hillary-swapped-genders-james-barrett

Clinton Aide Squeals: Everyone Knew About Obama’s Illegal Wiretapping

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager Robbie Mook has become the latest Democrat to roll over and squeal on his former comrades, telling Fox News Wednesday that he and everyone else in the Clinton campaign knew Obama was wiretapping Trump Tower.
Anyone who says otherwise is lying to save their skin, Robbie Mook says, as Democrats scramble to clear their names. Democrats ran an arrogant, sloppy spying campaign against Trump because they assumed that a Clinton victory was certain. They didn’t think Trump would ever be in a position to expose their crimes.
They couldn’t have been more wrong, and now shellshocked Clinton campaign members are beginning to rat on each other in an attempt to gain favor with the current administration and save themselves from serving jail time....... http://yournewswire.com/clinton-obama-illegal-wiretapping/

Nearly half of voters believe reporters ‘make up’ anonymous sources

Almost half of the American electorate believes journalists falsify their anonymous sources, according to a new poll.
A new Morning Consult/Politico survey, which was conducted March 2-6 and published Wednesday, found that 44 percent of respondents believed it is “likely” reporters “make up” anonymous sources.
By contrast, only 36 percent said it is “not likely” journalists fabricate their unnamed sources, and 20 percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion.
President Donald Trump, for his part, has said he is no fan of anonymous sources in reporting and claims that they’re made up. During his address at the Conservative Political Action Conference last month, he said, “They have no sources; they just make ’em up when there are none.” http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/03/08/nearly-half-of-voters-believe-reporters-make-up-anonymous-sources/

Feds can assassinate by car, warns WikiLeaks

Back in 2016, WND reported a privacy organization’s warning that vehicle computer systems could be hacked and people could end up being injured.Now a Wikileaks release of CIA documents shows the government had been working on plans to infiltrate the vehicle-control systems.  The concept is not fully described in the documents, but WikiLeaks summarized its finding: “As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.”
It was in an Oct. 23, 2014, CIA “Branch Direction Meeting” of at least 10 people that the issue of “vehicle systems” being a “potential mission area” came up..... http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/wikileaks-warns-of-feds-ability-for-undetectable-assassinations/

Shocker! CIA can mimic Russian cyber hack

If the WikiLeaks revelation about CIA hacking capabilities is any indication, the bugging of Trump Tower could have been done without wiretaps or formal court warrants.
That’s because it is now confirmed that the U.S. government has the ability to use everyday items to listen in on private conversations.
WikiLeaks unloaded what it called the largest-ever release of CIA secrets, exposing the agency’s “global covert hacking program” that is capable of invading your computer, your smartphone, your automobile. Even your TV can be turned into a remote microphone. You may turn the TV off, but the CIA is able to compromise the set so the microphone continues to record your every word. Same with your smartphone.
You’re not technically being bugged, but the CIA hack turns your TV or phone into a defacto bug. ....http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/shocker-cia-can-mimic-russian-cyber-hack/

Five Reasons Why Ridicule Is The Proper Response To Global Warming Alarmists

If it seems that the climate radicals are acting desperately because they sense that their "movement" is dying, then that's probably an accurate assessment. From EPA employees threatening resistance to Donald Trump's presidency to junk-science guy Bill Nye appearing on Fox News to tell the world that humans are fully responsible for "the speed that climate change is happening," the irrational behavior is overflowing.
Of course the alarmists can't give up their shrillness. They're still bullies who try to marginalize, shame and silence those who don't agree with their narrative that man is dangerously overheating the planet through his greenhouse gas emissions.
But they're the ones who should be mocked. Here's why:
They're wrong. The devastating heat they predicted simply hasn't happened. Climate scientists Roy SpencerJohn Christy and others have showed this numerous times.
They've hidden their true agenda. The zealots want to destroy capitalism and take over the world's economy....... http://www.investors.com/politics/commentary/five-reasons-why-ridicule-is-the-proper-response-to-global-warming-alarmists/

FBI prepares hunt for source of CIA documents published by WikiLeaks

The FBI is launching a hunt to unmask the source of the CIA document leak which has rocked the US intelligence services.
Thousands of documents were suddenly published by anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks yesterday, purportedly revealing hacking tools which the CIA uses to break into devices such as phones, computers and smart TVs.
It the latest in an embarrassing series of revelations, and WikiLeaks has promised more to come.
Investigators are now carrying out a massive operation to find who released the documents, with the source likely to face a long jail term if caught. The most recent whistleblower to be convicted under the Espionage Act, Chelsea Manning, was given a 35 year sentence, although this was commuted in the final days of Barack Obama's presidency.

Deportees back in Mexico offered free training to become English teachers

MEXICO CITY – A progressive initiative in Mexico City is giving U.S. deportees the opportunity to obtain English language and teaching qualifications, in an effort to help them rebuild their lives following ejection from their American homes.
An entirely free program, the joint effort between the city’s government and citizens’ council, offers a four to six week teacher training course, culminating in an official TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) exam, after which successful candidates will be qualified to teach in Mexican schools.
Tomas Perez grew up in Chicago and was deported 12 years ago. He says a teaching program would have been useful - he has lost his English completely. . . . http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/03/08/deportees-back-in-mexico-offered-free-training-to-become-english-teachers.html
