FBI Arrests Former Top Puerto Rico Officials In Government Corruption Scandal

Via Clint "I was at a gathering of , well let’s just say artist types a while back and a lady started railing about President didn’t assist Puerto Rico after the hurricane because he didn’t care about the brown people who lived there. As it turns out he cared. It was the brown people who didn’t care about the brown people."


U.S. authorities have unsealed a corruption indictment against two former top officials in Puerto Rico for directing some $15.5 million in contracts to favored businesses, allegedly edging out other firms for the lucrative government work despite allegations of being unqualified.

The two former Puerto Rico leaders — Julia Keleher, who was the secretary of the island's department of education before stepping down in April, and Ángela Ávila-Marrero, who led Puerto Rico's Health Insurance Administration until last month — were arrested by FBI agents on Wednesday.

Giving Booth a Head Start For Escape

Theodore Roscoe in The Web of Conspiracy  pointed out some interesting facts regarding the federal government’s pursuit of John Wilkes Booth after the Lincoln assassination.

It seems that a Major A. C. Richards, Superintendent of Washington’s Metropolitan Police Force had been in the audience at Ford’s Theater the night of Lincoln’s assassination. He had recognized Booth. Roscoe noted of Richards that “Major Richards was a capable officer, tough and exacting. He briefed the duty force on what had happened, dispatched messengers to summon the reserves, rushed
 detectives to Ford’s Theater to round up witnesses, and sent word of his emergency action to General Christopher C. Auger, commander of Army forces in charge of the national capital. Unquestionably, Richards gave Auger detailed information on the assassination and named John Wilkes Booth as the fugitive assassin.”

Bombshell Claim: Scientists Find "Man-made Climate Change Doesn't Exist In Practice"

Via Iver


A new scientific study could bust wide open deeply flawed fundamental assumptions underlying controversial climate legislation and initiatives such as the Green New Deal, namely, the degree to which 'climate change' is driven by natural phenomena vs. man-made issues measured as carbon footprint. Scientists in Finland found "practically no anthropogenic [man-made] climate change" after a series of studies. 
“During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C”, the Finnish researchers bluntly state in one among a series of papers.
This has been collaborated by a team at Kobe University in Japan, which has furthered the Finnish researchers' theory: "New evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth's climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an 'umbrella effect'," the just published study has found, a summary of which has been released in the journal Science Daily. The findings are hugely significant given this 'umbrella effect' — an entirely natural occurrence  could be the prime driver of climate warming, and not man-made factors.

Video of Migrant Gang Shoving Gun in Swedish Boy's Mouth Stirs Controversy

Here is a video of one of the migrant gangs that have been welcomed into Europe sticking a pistol’s barrel into the mouth of a male Swedish teenager and ordering him to dance.  Having been taught that it is racist, and perhaps a crime, to oppose invaders from the Third World, instead of fighting back the Swedish teenager complies and accepts, like a good European male, the humiliation.  Of course, all of these decadent European countries have gun control laws, but nevertheless, the recent invaders are armed.  I have heard nothing from the gun control lobby about disarming them.  Try to imagine what would happen to a Swede who stuck a gun’s barrel into the mouth of a privileged invader.  No chance of that.  The spirit of the Vikings is stone dead in Scandinavia. The cowards even look the other way when their women are gang raped.

AOC's Chief: The Real Green New Deal — Socialism

Via Billy

Her chief of staff admits the goal is a socialist takeover of America's entire economy.

In a recent Washington Post story featuring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, he gleefully admits the real agenda behind the dubious Green New Deal. 

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” Chakrabarti states, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” He then adds, “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire economy thing.”

suspects and victims in deadly home invasion

A Florida homeowner used an AR-15 to shoot and kill two alleged home intruders, one of whom was wearing a “Friday the 13th” horror movie mask.

The Ocala Star Banner reported that a total of four suspects allegedly targeted the homeowner’s Marion County residence on Wednesday, July 10, initially seeking to gain entry by pretending to have car trouble and asking for help. The homeowner, identified by WCJB only as a war veteran, said he was unable to help and closed the door.

Some time later, the suspects allegedly broke into the home and immediately exchanged fire with the homeowner, who had armed himself with an AR-15 rifle. The gunfight left two suspects dead and the homeowner suffering from gunshot wounds.

Border Patrol Union Pres Blasts Clinton for Helping Illegals Skirt Deportation

“I’m amazed that somebody that ran for president of the United States — that was willing to promise to uphold the laws of the United States, the Constitution of the United States — is now actively helping people avoid justice,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told “Fox & Friends” on Friday.
When Hillary Clinton posted legal advice Thursday to illegal aliens on how to avoid capture, it was a perfect example of why the U.S. Border Patrol endorsed Donald Trump for president.

For a woman who once competed for the honor of swearing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,” her latest action was a slap in the face to the law itself.

And the leader of the Border Patrol union was infuriated.

Tempers flared in the Rose Garden of the White House on Thursday as an outspoken Playboy magazine writer nearly came to blows with conservative activist and former Donald Trump aide Sebastian Gorka.

The encounter happened in full view of more than 100 right-wing social media stars who were at the White House for a 'summit' focused on grievances against Twitter and Facebook. 

A Secret Service agent ultimately intervened to separate the two men.

Playboy's White House correspondent Brian Karem, who doubles as a CNN political analyst, started the melee by telling the conservatives that they were 'a group of people that are eager for demonic possession.'
