DNA discovery identifies living descendants of Biblical Canaanites

“In light of the enormously complex history of this region in the last few millennia, it was quite surprising that over 90 percent of the genetic ancestry of present-day Lebanese was derived from the Canaanites,” said Chris Tyler-Smith, senior group leader at The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in a statement.

Refugee Admissions Under Trump: More Christians, Fewer Muslims

THE GOD OF ABRAHAM HAS HEARD THEIR CRIES
The first six months-plus of the Trump administration have brought a discernible shift in the religious affiliation breakdown of refugees admitted into the United States, with a larger proportion of Christians to Muslims among those resettled.

Palin lawyers blocked from grilling reporters in defamation suit

A Manhattan federal court judge will decide by the end of this month whether to dismiss a defamation lawsuit Sarah Palin filed against the New York Times for accusing the former Alaska governor of inciting gun violence.

In the meantime, Judge Jed Rakoff suspended discovery, blocking Palin’s lawyers from grilling two dozen Times reporters to prove the Gray Lady is biased against her.
Judge Jed Rakoff

Rakoff is a Clinton-appointed, activist judge. I suspect that this will not proceed.

Huckabee Sanders Rips Into Media: ‘You Want to Create a Narrative That Doesn’t Exist’
Sarah Huckabee Sanders sounded off passionately on Tuesday against the Russia collusion theories pushed by some in the media.

“You guys want to create a narrative that just doesn’t exist,” said the newly appointed press secretary, adding that they “seem obsessed.”

“Everybody wants to make try to make this some story about misleading,” she shot back to a question about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer.

1 Million Illegal Immigrants To Have California Driver’s License By 2018

IF THE ILLEGALS HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ‘MOTOR VOTER’, THEY WILL SOON.
More than 905,000 illegal immigrants have a California driver’s license at this point, and that number could rise to more than a million by January of 2018.

By the end of June 2017, more than 900,000 drivers have been registered under California Assembly Bill 60, which requires only proof of identity and residency, not immigration status, in order to receive a license to drive a car.

Top EPA official resigns over direction of agency under Trump

The former EPA official made $249,000 in her last year of employment, according to the website FederalPay.org, which compiles federal salary data.

For comparison, the average American’s salary is $44,000, according to the Census Bureau, and a senator or congressman makes $174,000 a year.

Southerland’s base salary was $185,100 in 2016. She got a $64,155 bonus that year, and, according to FederalPay.org, she was in “highest-paid ten percent of employees” at EPA.

JUST THINK… 30 YEARS OF SUCKING UP A GOVERNMENT CHECK DOWN THE CRAPPER

Elizabeth “Betsy” Southerland ended her 30-year run at the agency with a scathing exit letter in which she claimed that “the environmental field is suffering from the temporary triumph of myth over truth.” She last worked as the director of science and technology in the Office of Water.

“The truth is there is NO war on coal, there is NO economic crisis caused by environmental protection, and climate change IS caused by man’s activities,” Southerland wrote, directly rejecting many of Trump’s claims.

The legislation is aimed at punishing Moscow for interfering in the 2016 presidential election and for its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where the Kremlin has backed President Bashar Assad. It also imposes financial sanctions against Iran and North Korea.

Zakaria: Trump’s Win Was a Slap in the Face to us Elites

“The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things,” Zakaria said.

“There’s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented.”

Pinkerton: The ‘Hard Pivot’ from Health Care to Tax Reform and a Stronger Trump Agenda

We can look back and see that the repeal-and-replace effort was a valiant try at keeping a campaign promise, but it just wasn’t working. Sometimes, as Kenny Rogers might have put it, you’ve got to “Know when to fold ‘em/ Know when to walk away.” Yes, that’s the “the secret to survivin’.” As Trump has always said, failure can happen, but tactical flexibility is the key to long-term success.

Mindful of that survive-so-as-to-fight-again-and-win ethos, GOP leaders on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue have been making what’s been described by one insider as “a hard pivot to tax reform.”

News Notes

Climate Liar … I mean Activist … Josh Fox wants other people to hug terrorists.

Remember when the Obama administration said that the Washington Redskins could no longer have copyright protection because their team name was offensive? Guess what? The Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that the Obama administration got it wrong and that there is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment. This will have huge implications for Christians.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/06/19/supreme-court-unanimously-reaffirms-there-is-no-hate-speech-exception-to-the-first-amendment/

President Trump has called a halt to federal reporting requirements related to possible computer disruptions due to the Y2K bug. Gosh … it only took seventeen years! And I remember when Candidate Obama promised to go through the federal budget with a scalpel to cut out stupid and wasteful expenditures. Pretty dull scalpel. ::snort::

The Environmental Protection Agency is scrapping the department’s nearly $1 million in free gym memberships for employees. It’s about damn time they stopped such an egregious abuse of taxpayer funds.

Another reason to NOT move to California. Lawmakers in liberal California have committed $50 million in taxpayer funding for legal services and representation for illegal aliens.

Canada is rapidly throwing off its reputation for being a nation of nice people. Canada’s Senate passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training. The bill now only needs royal assent from the governor general.

The North Korean communist regime detained an American citizen for removing a propaganda poster from a hotel wall. After more than a year in the tender care of the NoKos, Otto Warmbier has died. President Trump condemned the ‘brutal’ North Korean regime and called Warmbier’s family to offer his condolences.

PoliNation: your diversion from the daily drumbeat of terrorism and the wholesale slaughter of innocents

Trump Budget Cuts EPA By 31 Percent
Nice to think about; won’t ever happen.
Budgetary issues must have the approval of both sides of the aisle.
For eight years Obama, Dirty Harry Reid and the dems never even submitted one.
When one political party names itself “The Resistance” you can expect not a single vote.
Besides, taxpayer handouts are how the liberals stay employed.
The budget, released officially Tuesday, seeks to reduce the agency’s redundancies and efficiencies while prioritizing infrastructure and environmental clean up efforts. If adopted, the EPA would receive $5.655 billion.

The budget allocates $2.3 billion for state revolving funds, an increase from current agency funding in the continuing resolution. Other budget increases include programs related to drinking water, wastewater, and infrastructure.

Trump calls to cut off tax breaks for illegal immigrants
“How do I go to somebody who pays their taxes, and say, ‘Look, I want you to give this earned income tax credit to somebody who’s working here illegally’? That’s not defensible,” Mulvaney told reporters. “And it’s a reasonable accommodation to simply ask them for Social Security numbers.”

The earned income tax credit is a refundable tax credit, which means that if a recipient has no income tax liability, the government sends the person a check. Part of the child tax credit is also refundable.

WELFARE LEECHES LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY THEY “GET THEY TAXES”,WHICH MEANS THEIR REWARD FOR HAVING A BROOD OF KIDS WITH MULTIPLE PARTNERS.THEN IT’S TIME FOR THE BIGGER FLAT SCREEN,NEW TATTOOS,GETTIN’ THEY NAILS DONE AND NEW RIMS ON THEY HOMEBOYS WHIP.

CNN’s Don Lemon Suggests Blacks Will ‘Lose,’ Go Hungry Under Trump Budget

Analysis: Trump’s plans to cut food stamps could hit his supporters hardest

Because conservative viewers are leaving Fox in droves, and opting for online venues for news. This is what happens when you abandon your base.
OF COURSE THE WASHINGTON COMPOST GETS IT WRONG. REPUBLICANS ARE NOT THE PARTY THAT LIVES OFF FOOD STAMPS AND OTHER TAXPAYER HANDOUTS.
The areas hit would likely include Southern and Central California, where the unemployment rate can spike as high as 19 percent, as well as cities, such as Detroit and Scranton, Pa., where joblessness remains rampant. The change would also affect numerous counties in Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana, according to anti-poverty advocates who were familiar with budget discussions within the administration.

Enviro-Fraud and the Former Messiah

Thought I’d throw a couple different things together.

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’


APPARENTLY 5 SUPREME COURT JUSTICES MISSED 9TH GRADE SCIENCE CLASS WHERE WE LEARNED CARBON DIOXIDE IS A TRACE ELEMENT, NOT A POLLUTANT!
The study claims to have “proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false,” according to a press statement put out by Drs. Jim Wallace, John Christy, and Joe D’Aleo. Wallace, Christy and D’Aleo — a statistician, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively — released a study claiming to invalidate EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, which allowed the agency to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.

Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy

COLOR ME SHOCKED
Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

AFTER A 3 MONTH TOUR DE FORCE OF HOW TO SPONGE OFF RICH PEOPLE LIKE RICHARD BRANSON AND THE LATE MARLON BRANDO, BARACK H. OBAMA WILL NOW DELIVER A BRAVURA PERFORMANCE AS THE ULTIMATE HYPOCRITE TO THE MAVENS OF WALL STREET
Obama to net $400K for Wall Street speech: report
The former president’s reported speaking fee is nearly twice the price commanded by Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Obama reappeared on the public stage Monday, making his first public remarks since leaving the White House at the future site of his presidential library.
The former president did not mention President Trump or offer political commentary during his appearance at the University of Chicago.

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS ASSHAT ACTUALLY SAID THIS:
Josh Earnest: Obama will jump in and criticize the new administration if Trump crosses any, er, “red lines”
I know what you’re thinking because I’m thinking it too, as is everyone who worked for the Obama administration on foreign policy: “Since when does Obama enforce red lines?”
Actually I suspect you’ll find him enforcing lots of moral “red lines” in the future, now that all that’s required of him is giving a speech to an adoring media peppered with lots of that’s-not-who-we-ares. That was 80 percent of his presidency but it’ll be 99 percent of his retirement.
Enjoy the irony of Earnest flagging as an example of a “red line” any potential efforts by Team Trump to start rounding up and deporting DREAMers. I … don’t think you need to worry, Josh. Things change but DACA stays the same!

Obama Uses Race Card To Take Shot At Hillary Clinton

I’M PRETTY SURE THESE TWO MEGALOMANIACS HAVE DESPISED EACH OTHER FROM THE GET-GO
Obama was telling the panel about how he visited with at-risk youth on Sunday ahead of his appearance at the University of Chicago.
“If the six of you had been in that conversation, you would have come away not saying ‘these are some thugs or super-predators that I can’t relate to.’ You’d actually say, ‘man, if I had gone through what they went through I’m not sure how things would have worked out me either,’” Obama told the panel.
Obama choice of the term “super-predator” is an apparent reference to comments that Hilary Clinton made in 1996 that caused a considerable backlash in both of the Clintons’ presidential campaigns.

SPEAKING OF SUPER PREDATORS (THAT’S CALLED A SEGUE):
Up to 60 Teens Swarm San Francisco Commuter Train, Robbing and Beating Passengers
Officials say the robbery was planned like a Blitzkrieg with the teens swarming the station, forcing the traindoors open, rushing into the train and robbing passengers, and then disappearing into an East Oakland neighborhood — all in a matter of minutes.
The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood.
Police will not release the video or still shots of the surveillance for fear that some of the suspects are minors
Whenever someone complains about the media blackout on the racial makeup of criminals and thugs, the response is usually something like “it’s not relevant to the story” or “we don’t want to upset the local minority community by appearing to single out criminals.”
My response is always: How can the race of the perpetrator not be relevant to the story? Or the race of the victim for that matter.

3 arrested after mob attacks officers at California college event

As the officers got out of the car, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground
THANKS TO BROTHER BARACK, THEY AIN’T SCARED OF THE PO-LEECE NO ‘MO

Three men were arrested following an attack on Davis police officers who encountered a group of people blocking traffic on a busy roadway during Saturday’s Picnic Day at UC Davis.
The annual campus open house has become known in recent years for violence and drunken mayhem, mainly on the streets of the normally quiet college town.
A hostile group quickly surrounded the vehicle. Several people began yelling threats at the officers in the car, and one person pretended he was pulling a gun on the officers, the news release said.
As the officers got out of the car and began to identify themselves as police, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground. Police reported that the officers were kicked and punched in the head, and one officer was struck on the side of the head with a bottle.
As they were being assaulted, the officers could see people in the crowd taking video of the attack on their cell phones, according to the news release.

There is ample room – and abundant need – for the proposed EPA reductions.

Under Trump, your puddles will belong to you

In May of 2015, the Obama administration made one of its more shocking and unacceptable power grabs with the EPA’s Waters of the United States rule.  

This rule defined almost all fresh water, including puddles, to be subject to federal oversight and regulation.

President Trump is going to reverse the rule probably this week.

Judge Napolitano explains the depth of the problem with this rule.

A new sheriff is at the EPA

pruitt-at-epa

The new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, told a crowd of career bureaucrats that the EPA will follow the law, not invent it.  

This will be a dramatic departure from the EPA of the last eight years under Barack Obama, who used the agency to regulate massive swathes of land, water and resources, placing them out of reach of state control.

President Donald Trump’s executive orders will officially be rolling back the Obama-era policies on climate change and water pollution and Pruitt intends to implement the changes.

There’s a new boss in town

And the Obama Sheeple know it.  According to Hot Air,  EPA employees were so upset after Trump won that they had to take sick leave.  And a few days ago, an unnamed employee reported more than a few friends were still coming to work in tears.

2017_01-28-trump-epa-by-terrell

But for those who are more committed to science than to politics, things are looking up.  In December, the House Science, Space and Technology Committee issued a report on their investigation into the firing of an Energy Department scientist.

The committee determined there to be an institutional disregard for separation of powers that amounted to “a reckless and calculated attack on the legislative process itself, which undermines the power of Congress to legislate.”

“Institutional disregard” is a polite way of saying that the Obama administration was so determined to have its own way that it actually forbade Energy Dept scientists from giving Congress information about their work and fired one who gave Congress information requested.

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the committee, said, “In this staff report based on lengthy record before the committee, much has been revealed about how senior level agency officials under the Obama administration retaliated against a scientist who did not follow the party line.”

“Moving forward, the department needs to overhaul its management practices to ensure that Congress is provided the information it requires to legislate and that federal employees and scientists who provide that information do so without fear of retribution.”
