In Turkey, many celebrated as Notre Dame burned

French authorities were quick to rule out arson as the cause of the devastating blaze at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15. Whatever the final investigation reveals, many extremist Muslims in Turkey were equally swift in their celebration of the fire that has demolished large parts of the historic structure.

The official Facebook page of the pro-government daily, Sabah, for example, is filled with praise for the destruction of the cathedral.

Kamala Harris plans to fine companies that don’t achieve pay equity

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris on Monday unveiled her plan to close the wage gap by fining companies that fail to ensure they are paying men and women equally.

The plan seeks to change where the onus falls in the current system: Instead of requiring employees to come forward to complain about equal pay, companies would now be required to submit data on equal pay each year to comply with new standards.

Illegal alien arrested for selling a kilo of meth in Pennsylvania

A Mexican national living illegally in Pennsylvania was arrested earlier this year for selling a kilo of methamphetamine to undercover police officer, as authorities say other illegals are pushing a meth comeback in an area that has just finished reeling from a heroin epidemic.

“At a news conference on Wednesday, Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan held some of the highest quality crystal meth that he says has ever been in the region,” according to WPVI. “He says meth is making a comeback thanks in part to dealers like Reuben Vargas Santillan.”

Who’s lying? Loretta Lynch denies telling James Comey to refer to Hillary Clinton investigation as a ‘matter’

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch denied to congressional investigators last year that she ever instructed former FBI Director James Comey to minimize the Hillary Clinton email investigation by urging him to call it a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”

“I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will,” Lynch told a joint task force of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees.

The transcript of the Dec. 19 interview, released Monday evening by House Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga., clashes with what Comey testified under oath.

Trump has made America less racist

Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, when Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters.

Obama appointed judge sides with Democrats over subpoena for Trump’s financial records

A Washington, D.C.-based federal judge has sided with House Oversight Committee Democrats seeking to enforce their subpoena of Trump accounting firm Mazars USA, in a major ruling that breathes new life into Democrats’ ongoing efforts to probe the president’s financial dealings.

The subpoena seeks access to a slew of Trump financial documents dating back to 2011, including personal records and records of various affiliated business and entities. Democrats pursued the subpoena after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified to Congress in February that the president’s accountants routinely and improperly altered his financial statements — including some signed by Mazars — to misrepresent his assets and liabilities.

Barack Obama-appointed judge Amit P. Mehta’s 41-page opinion began by comparing President Trump’s concerns about congressional overreach to those of President James Buchanan, asserting that Trump “has taken up the fight of his predecessor.

Only a small minority of migrants from the Central American countries at the epicenter of the border crisis say violence drove them out of their homeland, multiple surveys show.
Most migrants from the so-called Northern Triangle who claim asylum at the border are let into the country pending a court hearing, but only about half file for asylum as they await their day in immigration court, data shows.

Bernie Sanders dodges question on gender selective abortion

2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) refused to answer a question regarding federal legal restrictions of abortion.

While giving an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, Sanders — the self-described democratic socialist who praised the Soviet Union in the 1980s — was asked by host Chuck Todd if he believed there should be legislative “restrictions” placed on abortion.

Sanders responded by dancing around the question, saying that the decision should be left up to “the woman and her physician” and that people were making “a political issue out of a medical issue.”

More commie memories with Bernie Sanders

Politico has viewed three-and-a-half hours of footage from Bernie and Jane Sanders’ 1988 ‘honeymoon’ to the Soviet Union, and judging by their description, it looks like the footage might make it difficult for Sanders to distance himself from his support for Communist regimes both the USSR and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, where he also visited.

The U.S. birth rate has hit a record low of 1.7, well below the replacement rate of 2.1, as more women choose careers over having families.

Immigration fraud: 30 percent of migrant families are unrelated

Some of the migrant families arrested at the southern border weren’t actually families.

In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren’t theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system’s temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

“There’s been some concern about, ‘Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'” the official said. “Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members.”
