He said that we should “always prioritize personal safety over national security.” (Snip) However, the silent killers that unchecked migration may spread across borders are infectious diseases that were thought to be largely eradicated in the West. According to a report prepared by the Federation of Immigration Reform, “Communicable diseases do not stop at international borders. They could be one of the most dangerous – yet rarely considered – consequence of inadequate immigration controls.” The report added that “researchers have 9 dead, 54 wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago Tue, 22 02 2017 07:02:20 GMT 4a77bf9bceac308e9e1b5c66a3aae19e606da91a Chicago Sun'Times Wires (IL), by Staff Posted By: JoniTx- Tue, 22 02 2017 07:02:20 GMT Nine people were killed and at least 54 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday evening and Monday morning. Seven people were shot, one fatally, during a single mass shooting incident about 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side. The group was in the parking lot of a banquet hall in the 11900 block of South Loomis when a male in a black SUV opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The SUV then sped away. Kolby Craig, 33, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 2:35 a.m., Dershowitz: Liberals Have a ´Special Obligation´ to Condemn Hard Left When They Engage in Violence and Bigotry Tue, 22 56 2017 06:56:54 GMT 58fc87b8b7fa87b7445425dddecc33c1d64e721f, by Leah Barkoukis Posted By: Flipper3- Tue, 22 56 2017 06:56:54 GMT Liberal Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz believes liberals have a duty to call out bigotry from the far left just as the president did for the alt'right. "There’s a lot of bigotry on both sides. I don´t want to make moral equivalence," Dershowitz told radio host John Catsimatidis when asked about the violence in Charlottesville that has sparked a national dialogue about race and Confederate statues. "But having said that, that doesn´t give a pass to the people on the hard left, who are themselves engaged in violence and also some bigotry of their own." Trump gets Super Bowl ring from Patriots owner Robert Kraft Tue, 22 53 2017 06:53:01 GMT 444c7fa2ba4059a7c930268a20733c716a58c7f2 Washington Examiner, by Melissa Quinn Posted By: JoniTx- Tue, 22 53 2017 06:53:01 GMT President Trump received a commemorative Super Bowl ring from longtime friend and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft after the team visited the White House in April. A spokesman for the Patriots, Stacey James, told USA Today that Trump told Kraft during their White House visit how he was honored the Patriots were the first team to visit during his presidency. The team gifted Trump a jersey and a helmet during the April trip, but Kraft wanted to do more. James said Trump´s customized ring is the same as what the Patriots players and staff received for winning the Super Bowl. North Korea’s latest propaganda puts Trump in cemetery Tue, 22 32 2017 06:32:06 GMT 2641e69a19ca26a3b12790be9377061947188ace Fox News, by Katherine Lam Posted By: earlybird- Tue, 22 32 2017 06:32:06 GMT President Trump is pictured looking out over a Guam graveyard cluttered with crosses in a photoshopped image from the newest propaganda film '' and grim warning '' from North Korea. The regime followed the video with a statement posted through its KCNA news agency, saying Trump "spouted rubbish" and frequently tweeted about "weird articles of his ego'driven thoughts" and attacking South Korea´s "puppy'like" Defense Minister Song Young'moo for "pinning hope on that mad guy." But the picture of a graveyard believed to be in Guam may be the most rattling in the video, given dictator Kim Jong Un´s repeated threats to strike USS John S McCain collision: Some remains found, says US Navy commander Tue, 22 44 2017 05:44:30 GMT 7bc8665cb336b3c660e157f0e9f025140e4031d5 Channel News Asia [Singapore], by Aqil Haziq Mahmud Posted By: PageTurner- Tue, 22 44 2017 05:44:30 GMT SINGAPORE: US Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Scott Swift said US Marine Corps divers have uncovered remains in sealed compartments of the USS John S McCain, following the collision between the US warship and an oil tanker in Singapore´s waters on Monday (Aug 21) that left 10 sailors missing and another five injured. Speaking at a news conference at Changi Naval Base on Tuesday evening, Adm Swift said it is too early to tell how many bodies were found in the damaged US Navy destroyer. "We have discovered other bodies during the diving on McCain today, but it’s premature to say how many How Google is secretly recording You through your mobile, monitoring millions of conversations every day and storing the creepy audio files Tue, 22 35 2017 05:35:10 GMT 71f97e3605e6b80a824ca03462acbf2023bcbf60 The Sun [UK], by Margi Murphy Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- Tue, 22 35 2017 05:35:10 GMT Did you know that Google has been recording you without your knowledge? The technology giant has effectively turned millions of its users´ smartphones into listening devices that can capture intimate conversations ' even when they aren´t in the room. If you own an Android phone, it´s likely that you´ve used Google´s Assistant, which is similar to Apple´s Siri. Google says it only turns on and begins recording when you utter the words "OK Google". But a Sun investigation has found that the virtual assistant is a little hard of hearing.

Lee. (Snip)Unfortunately for the president’s critics, what was obvious to them whenever this completed narrative reached them could not have been obvious to President Trump when he began to speak at 3:35 p.m.. Why? Because at that moment it was not obvious to anybody.

"These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified," said Karen England with the Capitol Resource Institute. (Snip) "The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl," said England. Parents say besides the books, the student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s Family Were Slave Owners – Owned Michelle Obama’s Relatives!

This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro'America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great'great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations, Trump’s ‘America First’ Base Unhappy with Flip'Flop Afghanistan Speech Tue, 22 15 2017 05:15:20 GMT d085e3c88429b4f7d8a08c22106dbf8276decc1d Breitbart Big Government, by Adam Shaw Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- Tue, 22 15 2017 05:15:20 GMT President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business'as'usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation'building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16'year'war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had Judge throws out $458,000 condo sale, says Clearwater attorney tricked bidders Tue, 22 14 2017 05:14:00 GMT b868d99c8445320b1fddd515394e732bf126c97d Tampa Bay Times, by Susan Taylor Martin Posted By: Hazymac- Tue, 22 14 2017 05:14:00 GMT CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Circuit Judge Jack St. Arnold on Monday threw out the $458,100 sale of a gulf'front condo because of what he called an "unscrupulous" and "conniving" scheme to trick bidders at a foreclosure auction. His ruling means that the owners of Orlando Realty Group will get back the money they bid on what turned out to be a second mortgage held by a company connected to Clearwater attorney Roy Skelton. Only later did the bidders discover that a different lender had a superior first mortgage and could soon foreclose, leaving them with no condo and out nearly a President Trump´s path to victory Tue, 22 04 2017 05:04:04 GMT 682c6a96d245f406a981e9958bf2605a022ec2bd, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Tue, 22 04 2017 05:04:04 GMT Obama said Afghanistan was the real war, and Iraq the fake. He let the Islamic State take over large parts of Iraq, and ramped up the war in Afghanistan. But he had Washington make the calls. We forgot everything we learned in Vietnam. President Trump had his generals come up with a plan for Iraq. The Islamic State is on the run. Now for Afghanistan. (Snip)The significance of Trump´s speech is not that he has come up with a plan to win, but that he has won.

You´ll blow a fuse. Given how many hours it takes to recharge a car, that would be inconvenient. From the Telegraph: The National Grid expressed concerns that an average size 3.5kW battery charger would take 19 hours to fully charge a car battery, even when it is 25 per cent full. A “thought piece” document obtained by the Financial Times warned that a more powerful 11kW device would still take six hours to charge a car battery and during Chicago Police arrests drop 24 percent in one year Tue, 22 47 2017 04:47:20 GMT 014b6bdb095546e5d0e6f115365c15b57c7c17e8 Chicago Sun'Times, by Fran Spielman Posted By: AltaD- Tue, 22 47 2017 04:47:20 GMT Chicago Police officers made 85,493 arrests in 2016, a 24 percent drop from the year before and roughly half the number of arrests they made the year before Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office. The steady and precipitous decline in arrests coincided with the mayor’s decision to rely on overtime — to the tune of $143 million last year, and even more during in the first quarter of this year — to mask a severe manpower shortage before abruptly reversing course and embarking on a two'year hiring blitz. The decline also underscored how important it is for Emanuel to bolster police Russia causes alarm with ´largest ever´ military drills in Belarus Tue, 22 23 2017 04:23:27 GMT 2fc771255ea0348dee8112fe413c4a7a83859ab3 Independent [UK], by Will Worley Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Tue, 22 23 2017 04:23:27 GMT Concerns are mounting over Russian military exercises planned for next month, which some fear could be used as cover for intervention in Belarus. The Zapad (´West´) exercise, which occurs every four years, will take place in Belarus and western Russia. Russian war games have previously preceded or provided cover for real military operations, including in Ukraine and Georgia, analysts said. While Russia has claimed around 13,000 troops will take part, the real number that will participate is believed to be much higher.

As the story now goes, the reason why Obamacare premiums are soaring by double digits across most of the nation is that Trump'caused "uncertainty" is spooking the market. Let´s be clear: There is some truth to that analysis, which some insurers have cited as a factor behind their rate hikes.

"The youngest Trump doesn´t have any responsibilities as the president´s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public," entertainment reporter Ford Springer wrote in the Daily Caller. The story prompted widespread rebukes from both sides of the political aisle and the media, including a sharp statement from Clinton, who knows firsthand the spotlight of a White House childhood.

Here´s a headline from the New York Times: Angry Trump Grilled His Generals About Troop Increase, Then Gave In His whole new strategy is supposedly a continuation of the past policies of the Obama and Bush administrations, baby steps, or else a cave'in to what his generals want.

The city council voted unanimously early Tuesday to shroud the statues of Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in fabric to represent mourning of Heather Heyer, the 32'year'old woman killed when a car rammed into a group of people protesting a white nationalist rally in the Virginia city, the Daily Progress reported.

Police in Osnabrueck, in northwestern Germany, say they found the drugs while checking an Austrian-registered car on the A30 highway on Saturday. They say the people in the car, a 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son, told officers they had been in the Netherlands to buy a vehicle but hadn´t succeeded so were returning home. Officers said they found about 5,000 of the orange, Trump-shaped ecstasy tablets along with a large, Scientists remotely hacked a brain, controlling body movements Tue, 22 33 2017 03:33:38 GMT 870fc41d4272163e458ac07bef51a8431d5d1616 BGR Media, by Mike Wehner Posted By: Hermoine- Tue, 22 33 2017 03:33:38 GMT Imagine someone remotely controlling your brain, forcing your body’s central processing organ to send messages to your muscles that you didn’t authorize.

The circumstances surrounding the death of 26'year'old Gemmel Moore are being questioned after people came forward with ´incriminating information´ about Ed Buck, whose West Hollywood home Moore was found dead in on July 27. Buck, 62, who has given money to names such as Hillary Clinton and Jerry Brown, has been accused by other escorts of instructing them to ingest dangerous amounts of drugs for pay. Buck´s attorney has repeatedly denied the accusations
