Sen. Rand Paul: Intelligence community shouldn't search Americans' records without a judge's warrant

All eyes on Paul with shutdown looming

As the Senate barrels toward the third government funding deadline of the year, Republicans appear in the dark about one key question: What will Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) do?

The libertarian-minded senator caused an hours-long shutdown in February. He's yet to say if he'll give a repeat performance going into the midnight Friday deadline to avoid a partial closure.

"Shame, shame. A pox on both Houses — and parties. $1.3 trillion. Busts budget caps. 2200 pages, with just hours to try to read it," he tweeted on Thursday.

Brazilian Women Are Trying To Get Impregnated By White American Men

Via John

Brazilian women want to be impregnated from the sperm of white American men, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal Thursday.

Wealthy Brazilian women and lesbian couples are requesting white male sperm from the U.S. so their kids will have more Caucasian features, the Wall Street Journal reported.

At least 50 percent of Brazil’s population is black or mixed-race, but women are selecting young sperm donors who will more likely produce children with blond hair and blue eyes. The number of American sperm donors to Brazil surged at least 3,000 percent in the past seven years. It is also illegal to pay men for their sperm in Brazil, which allows American donors more opportunity in the market.

The carefully vetted process of selecting American sperm and then the in vitro fertilization process starts at around $7,000.

The rationale for wanting white children is reportedly due to racism and tense race relations throughout Brazil’s history. Brazil took in 10 times as many slaves as the U.S. and it was the last Western country to make slavery illegal in 1888. Now, 80 percent of the richest one percent of Brazil’s population is white, according to WSJ.

“It’s an atheist’s way to achieve immortality,” computer scientist João Carlos Holland de Barcellos, told the Wall Street Journal. Barcellos has blue eyes and light hair due to his German and English ancestors is now freezing his sperm and giving it to Brazilian couples who desire more Caucasian-looking children. His wife manages their practice and transfers the sperm nearly-daily to women at their home.

Citigroup announced Thursday it’s implementing restrictions on client firearm sales, making it the first major bank to impose such gun control measures.

In an email to employees provided to Infowars, Citigroup Chief Executive Officer Mike Corbat detailed new policies applying to “small business, commercial and institutional clients, as well as credit card partners.”

The policy is ostensibly “designed to respect the rights of responsible gun owners while helping keep firearms out of the wrong hands,” Corbat claimed.

House Intel Votes To Shut Down Russia Investigation, Release Final Report

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted along party lines on Thursday to formally end the panel’s Russia investigation and to release a report about the probe to the rest of Congress.

The 150-page report will now undergo a classification review by the intelligence community to determine what information must be redacted in the document. After it goes to Congress, the report will be made public. That is expected to happen within the next several weeks.

Benghazi hero unloads on McCabe, Comey for what they ‘tried to pin on him’ and his team: ‘worst scum of human’

No matter who you are, you don’t want to get caught in the crosshairs of Benghazi hero Kris Paronto, an Army Ranger.

Paronto unleashed a fiery Twitter takedown of Obama-appointed Deep State agents Andrew McCabe, James Comey, and John Brennan. And they’re going to need some aloe to nurse those sick burns.

Paronto started off by blasting McCabe, who whined to the media that his firing was an attempt by the Trump White House to “slander” him and the entire FBI.

For the record, President Trump has repeatedly praised the rank-and-file members of the FBI as hard-working patriots. Trump’s issue is with top-level political appointees, most of whom are Obama holdovers that have been working nonstop to undermine his presidency.

Paronto tweeted: “Slander the @FBI and Law Enforcement?! You’ve got to be sh*tting me, Andy. You , James [Comey] and your @BarackObama appointed syndicate brought nothing but lies, politics, corruption & disgrace to a once great FBI.” 

Paronto then slammed fired FBI director James Comey, who allegedly tried to pin “excessive force use” claims on Paronto and his team after they returned from Benghazi. “You all are the worst scum of human[ity],” Kris tweeted.

House passes 'right to try' drug bill

The House passed “right to try” legislation on experimental drugs largely along party lines Wednesday, sending a bill backed by President Trump to the Senate.

Last week, House Republican leaders put the bill on the floor under suspension of the rules. Democrats objected, expressing safety concerns over how the measure would bypass the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and it fell short of the necessary two-thirds support it needed.

But leaders made clear the House would take up the bill again. On the second try, the House only needed a simple majority to pass the bill, and easily did so in the 267-149 vote.

Maybe it wasn't the Russians after all.

Mark Zuckerberg had all but disappeared after a report emerged over the weekend that a data analytics firm allegedly harvested 50 million Facebook profiles of U.S. voters and used them to construct a software program to influence the 2016 presidential election. But he finally emerged on Wednesday to say this, in effect: Mistakes were made.

"We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you,” Zuckerberg said in a legalistic statement posted, of course, on Facebook. “I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again."

20 years later, no public memorials, ceremonies mark Mount Carmel saga

 TV series on Branch Davidian shootout to film in New Mexico


 After a community is seared by unthinkable violence, the shock and grief usually give way to the impulse to carve the memory 
into stone.

A memorial is a community’s attempt to punctuate tragedy, to close it with a period, or perhaps an exclamation point or a question mark.

Public memorials have honored the victims and shaped the storyline of terrorist bombings in Oklahoma City and New York City, of a president assassinated in Dallas, and of mass shootings across the country, including in Killeen and Austin.
