Original Article

The European Union has extended for a further five years anti-dumping duties on Chinese bicycles, the bloc said in its official journal on Thursday, after concluding that any lifting of measures would lead to a flood of imports. Imported Chinese bicycles have been subject to anti-dumping duties since 1993, currently with an import tariff of up to 48.5%. The extended duties are the latest in a series of EU measures against Chinese exports ranging from solar panels to steel, which have sparked strong words from Beijing. The European Union also decided in January to impose duties of up to 79.3% on imports of Chinese electronic bicycles.

China needs to be treated like thieving, corrupt international pirates that they are, by ALL countries. Only after they begin following the rules that all the rest of us follow should they be treated normally again.

The EU is going to need a lot more bicycles as a result of the socialist's ''green'' agendas. They better stock up early. The Chinese do make good, stout bicycles, which has been the primary mode of transportation there for over 100 years. Get them from Taiwan though.

And while they are at it, how about getting our servicemen out of your union, or at least pay for the protection we give you? You want to keep China out, so why not us, too?

These Euro-Boneheads all have serious country-killing problems with which to contend and they focus on bicycles? I agree with the principle but in the grand scale of things...

After months of speculation, former Rep. Darrell Issa announced he has formed an exploratory committee, another signal he may run for Congress again. Issa, who could not be reached for comment Thursday morning, changed his personal website to read “I have formally launched an exploratory committee for the 50th Congressional District in California.” Issa’s possible entrance into the race could prove a game-changer due to his high name recognition and vast financial resources. His net worth was $283 million in 2016, according to Roll Call, a politics and government news site.

Family members claim the girl's mother, father and stepfather acted in self-defense after they found the 17-year-old boy in their daughter's bedroom closet. But the teen said the adults tied him up with rope, assaulted him and called him slurs in a racially motivated attack. The parents are now charged with a hate crime and other felony offenses including kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and criminal threats, according to police in the northern California town of San Bruno.

Three San Diego residents filed a federal lawsuit today challenging California’s assault weapon ban, with the plaintiffs alleging that the state is violating its residents’ Second Amendment rights by its allegedly misguided definition of assault weapons. The suit, filed on behalf of James Miller, Patrick Russ and Ryan Peterson, as well as the San Diego County Gun Owners Political Action Committee, alleges that the types of firearms banned under California’s definition of assault weapons are lawfully protected under the Second Amendment. The suit calls California’s usage of the term “assault weapons,” “a politically-concocted pejorative term designed to suggest that there is an inherently unlawful or illegitimate basis for owning otherwise common firearms

RENO, Nev. - A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled against Nevada in a battle with the U.S. government over its secret shipment of weapons-grade plutonium to a site near Las Vegas. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the state's appeal after a judge refused to block any future shipments to Nevada. The court in San Francisco said the matter is moot because the Energy Department already sent the radioactive material and has promised that no more will be hauled there. "The remedy Nevada sought — stopping the government from shipping plutonium from South Carolina to Nevada under the proposed action — is no longer available,"

San Francisco Assemblyman Phil Ting has never been arrested, but facial recognition technology developed by Amazon links his image to a jailhouse mugshot. Ting is one of 26 state legislators who were wrongly identified as suspected criminals using the technology, according to results from a test released Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California. Matt Cagle, a technology and civil liberties attorney at the ACLU, said the organization ran its experiment using Amazon’s Rekognition software and screened 120 lawmakers’ images against a database of 25,000 mugshots.

French inventor Franky Zapata on Sunday succeeded in crossing the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard he designed, zooming over the Strait of Dover in just over 20 minutes. After a previous bid in July that ended with him falling into the sea, Zapata took off from Sangatte, just outside Calais in France at about 0617 GMT, on a little platform powered by five small jet engines and carrying kerosene in a backpack. Flanked by three helicopters, he reached Britain after a stop on a boat halfway through the 35-km crossing to refuel, waving to onlookers before landing safely in Saint Margaret's Bay, close to Dover on Britain's southern coast.

Former Cook County Judge Pat O’Brien, once a high-ranking county prosecutor, said Friday he plans to run against State’s Attorney Kim Foxx as a Republican, offering a stinging assessment of the first-term incumbent as “unfit” for the job. Under Foxx, O’Brien argued, “The only people who can say they are safer are the people committing crimes.” O’Brien, 69, filed paperwork this week with the State Board of Elections to form a campaign fundraising committee and made clear in an interview he’s well past testing the waters. “I’m in,” O’Brien said. O’Brien was elected judge as a Democrat in 2006. He indicated his switch to the Republican Party has more to do with political calculation

A federal judge has upheld California’s ban on owning, manufacturing or selling semiautomatic rifles and the “bullet buttons” that convert a conventional rifle into a rapid-fire weapon. Semiautomatic rifles are “incredibly effective killing machines” that are not commonly used or necessary for self-defense, said U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton of Santa Ana. She rejected a challenge to the law by the California Rifle & Pistol Association, an arm of the National Rifle Association. Her ruling Monday was the first federal court decision on the California law,

A protest outside the federal immigration detention center in Tacoma last year drew headlines when a 68-year-old man wrapped his arms around a police officer’s throat and shoulders in an apparent attempt to free another protester. When police got the man into handcuffs, they found a collapsible baton and knife in his pocket, leading to criminal charges. Early Saturday morning, that man, Willem Van Spronsen of Vashon Island, returned to the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, this time armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, according to Tacoma police. Police said Van Spronsen tossed lit objects at vehicles and buildings,

U.S. asylum officers slammed President Trump’s policy of forcing migrants to remain in Mexico while they await immigration hearings in the United States, urging a federal appeals court Wednesday to block the administration from continuing the program. The officers, who are directed to implement the policy, said it is threatening migrants’ lives and is “fundamentally contrary to the moral fabric of our Nation.” The labor union representing asylum officers filed a friend-of-the-court brief that sided with the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups challenging Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols program, which has sent 12,000 asylum-seeking migrants to Mexico since January.

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?

Another Friday and another hamfisted attempt by the Drudge Report to undermine support for President Donald John Trump. A week ago, Matt Drudge was sure that the trade war with Red China was going to do The Donald in because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down. A week before that Drudge had us in a recession not caused by Red China. Drudge has linked and bannered stories about wars with Iran, North Korea and Syria, which never materialized. I get that he has to link breaking news, but his continual selection of anti-Trump tripe trotted out by the Fourth Estate borders on desperation, and it diminishes and discredits Drudge

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

"The check's in the mail" is a promise that payment's been sent even if it hasn't. It's a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment. That's the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice. We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump's campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

HANOVER, N.H. — Joe Biden painted a vivid scene for the 400 people packed into a college meeting hall. A four-star general had asked the then-vice president to travel to Konar province in Afghanistan, a dangerous foray into “godforsaken country” to recognize the remarkable heroism of a Navy captain. Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns. “We can lose a vice president,” he said. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade,
