Trump targets legal migrants who get food aid

US President Donald Trump's administration is to make it more difficult for poorer legal migrants to extend their visas or gain permanent resident status (a green card).

The rule targets migrants who rely on public benefits, such as food aid or public housing, for more than a year.

Their applications will be rejected if the government decides they are likely to rely on public assistance in future.

The rule change would reinforce "ideals of self-sufficiency," officials said.

Universal Cancels Release of ‘The Hunt,’ Where Liberals Kill ‘Deplorables’ for Sport

Universal has canceled the release of the film The Hunt, reportedly featuring liberal elites hunting and killing “deplorables” for sport. The decision comes after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and President Donald Trump calling “liberal Hollywood” racist and full of violence.

“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film,” the studio said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”

‘If you go home, take your nukes with you!’ Top German MP taunts US threat of troop withdrawal

The US must take its nukes off German soil if it is serious about relocating troops to Poland, a top opposition MP said in a tongue-in-cheek response to a veiled ultimatum from the American envoy.

German lawmakers have reacted to threats made by the US envoy to Berlin, Richard Grenell, saying that Berlin may use the ultimatum as an opportunity to push for the withdrawal of all American assets from Germany.

Queen Elizabeth’s Son Might Be Dragged Deeper Into Epstein Probe After Sex Offender’s Death

US financier and socialite Jeffrey Epstein apparently took his own life at a New York prison, where he had been held since last month on child sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. The news came just hours after a bulk of documents, raising suspicions against Epstein’s powerful friends, including Prince Andrew, were released.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, may come under new scrutiny following suspected sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, the Daily Mail claims, citing an unnamed legal source. According to the outlet, following the death of the prime suspect, an FBI probe could now focus their “full attention” on his suspected associate, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, said to have also been friends with the British royal.

US FEDERAL COURT EXPOSES DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONSPIRACY AGAINST ASSANGE AND WIKILEAKS

In a ruling published two weeks ago, Judge John Koeltl of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York delivered a devastating blow to the US-led conspiracy against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

In his ruling, Judge Koeltl, a Bill Clinton nominee and former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, dismissed “with prejudice” a civil lawsuit filed in April 2018 by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alleging WikiLeaks was civilly liable for conspiring with the Russian government to steal DNC emails and data and leak them to the public.

Jennifer Robinson, a leading lawyer for Assange, and other WikiLeaks attorneys welcomed the ruling as “an important win for free speech.”

The decision exposes the Democratic Party in a conspiracy of its own to attack free speech and cover up the crimes of US imperialism and the corrupt activities of the two parties of Wall Street. Judge Koeltl stated:

NYC Has Lost 4,000 Jobs in the Restaurant Sector Alone Since Arrival of $15 Minimum Wage

By Mark J. Perry

New York City businesses have been struggling with higher labor costs brought about by the new $15 an hour city minimum wage that went into effect at the end of last year for “large employers” of 11 employees or more. That’s the third minimum wage increase in three years, and is an increase of more than 36 percent over the last two years from the $11 an hour minimum wage at the end of 2016, and a whopping increase of 107 percent since 2013 when the minimum wage in New York State (and NYC) were determined by the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour.

The current state minimum wage outside of NYC is $11.10 an hour, so employers in the city are faced with paying a large 35 percent wage premium compared to their counterparts outside of the metro area for low-skilled workers. And it’s having a devastating effect on the city’s small businesses and restaurants...

5 Theories About the “Death” of Jeffrey Epstein

Is there a chance that Epstein is not actually dead?

Maybe he’s in witness protection. A whole lot of people have BIG reasons to want him dead. Maybe one of his excessively wealthy and powerful friends helped him escape and he’s somewhere drinking mojitos and laughing at the coverage of his untimely demise.

There are some mysteries about how he could have managed to commit suicide or be murdered in his recent situation.

1.He tried to commit suicide 2 weeks ago.

2.Or maybe a bodybuilder-murderer-ex-cop-cellmate tried to take Epstein out in a hit although the bodybuilder-murderer-ex-cop-cellmate says he saved him.

3.He was taken off suicide watch despite allegedly trying to kill himself two weeks previously. It is now being reported that he was removed from suicide watch at the request of his attorneys.

The Epstein-Barr Connection

One of the first stories released to the press was that the video camera monitoring Epstein’s cell had broken down. Why not believe that? After all, it was just a standard, prison-service video camera, priced especially high, not to milk the taxpayers, but to pay for the special engineering to make it fault proof in the hostile prison environment.

When Barr was told that there were a lot of snickers about the faulty camera claim, the Justice Department updated the story, to claim that ALL of the cameras in the prison had failed on that fateful, fatal night. This is something that would certainly have been noted on guards’ reports from all branches of the prison, if it had happened. The activity logs would reveal the fault. This would discredit the initial story about a single camera failure, and thus raise the question, WHY was the initial false story released?

While the concept of harnessing nuclear fusion, the process which powers the sun, for use here on Earth has long been the “Holy Grail” of energy science, it has long been too good to be true. Nuclear fusion has the potential to solve some of the world’s greatest crises: it’s several times more powerful than nuclear fission, it can be produced using only hydrogen or lithium, which means that it creates none of the hazardous radioactive waste that makes nuclear fission so infamously problematic, and it produces absolutely zero carbon emissions.

Benghazi Car Bomb Attack Targets UN Officials, Leaving 2 Dead & 10 Wounded

The expanding chaos of the renewed war in Libya, increasingly a 'failed state' if there ever was a prime example of one, now approaching a decade on from its so-called "liberation" in 2011 by US-NATO forces, keeps providing daily and weekly reminders of the Obama-Hillary Clinton legacy of 'humanitarian intervention'.

On Saturday what is being reported as either a car bomb or possibly a roadside bomb ripped through a neighborhood in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi near United Nations offices.

The blast killed two UN staff, identified as United Nations Libya mission (UNSMIL) guards, with an additional ten people wounded, some among them children, according to Reuters.

John Bolton to Lobby for Harsher UK Stance on Iran, Huawei During Visit to London

The US has been carrying out a "maximum pressure" sanctions campaign against Iran and cracking down on Chinese tech giant Huawei for some time, but these polices found little support in the previous UK Cabinet.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton will try to convince the new Cabinet of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to align its foreign policies more with the American "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran and to discard its plans to use Huawei equipment in developing its 5G networks during his upcoming visit to the UK, Reuters reported, citing an anonymous source within the US administration.

Maloof had travelled to Mashhad in northeast Iran to attend last year's NHC and was one of the guests invited to the next conference which is to be held in the Lebanese capital of Beirut in September. The agents, however, warned him of consequences if he decides to attend.

How AIIB's Local-Currency Lending & China's Alternative to SWIFT Help Flee the Dollar

The China-based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has shifted to lending in national currencies in order to reduce the negative impact of the US-driven trade war. The initiative could be boosted by the emergence of Beijing's alternative to SWIFT, largely regarded as a challenge to the dollar's dominance.

In July 2019, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) started offering local-currency financing to private companies in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Turkey and Russia.

"The AIIB's offer meets the financing needs of local companies at a time when they are feeling increasingly insecure about the US dollar, as the Trump administration often imposes financial sanctions on other countries", Global Times, a daily Chinese newspaper outlined on 17 July.

It doesn’t take a tin-foil hat to smell a rat in Epstein’s ‘way too convenient’ death

The death of disgraced financier, pedophile and alleged blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein came just a day after more court documents were unsealed, leading to speculation he may have been “suicided” to stop his case from going to trial.
On Saturday morning, I was discussing Jeffrey Epstein with a friend. "He'll be bumped off and found dead in his cell," was my friend's prediction. "It won't come to court."

A few hours later, I went on Twitter to see what was happening in the world and I saw #EpsteinMurder trending.

The whole thing was quite uncanny.

‘Nonsense’: N. Korea won’t stop tests, rejects talks with Seoul unless it ends drills with US

There will be no direct talks with South Korea if it continues to stage joint military exercises with the US, a senior North Korean diplomat has said. The warning comes just as Pyongyang test-fired two short-range missiles.

South Korea must know that “Inter-Korean contact itself will be difficult” unless “they put an end” to the ongoing joint military drill with the US, Kwon Jon-gun, director-general for American affairs at the Foreign Ministry, said on Sunday.

The Clintons? Trump? The Russians? Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?

“There was no indication that he might try to take his own life,” an insider at the prison told the Daily Mail. “From what I saw, he was finally starting to adjust to prison. I think he was comforted by the rigidity of his new life.”

Well, who knows if that’s true or not. All we know is that Epstein’s cooperation with federal authorities could have had damning repercussions for any number of rich and powerful people. And now that cooperation is forever off the table.

Color us suspicious.

Whites Need Not Apply: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Pressured to Purge White Staffers to Make Room for Non-Whites

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House Democrats’ powerful campaign arm, has just abruptly purged half a dozen staffers. Why? Because they are white. 

It appears that no one had anything against these particular staffers … except for the color of their skin. Although roughly half the committee’s full-time staff (13 of 27) were nonwhite, this was not enough for some Democratic members of Congress. They complained DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos of Illinois had brought in too many white staffers when she won the position. And they put enough pressure on her that she sacrificed her loyal staffers to the god of diversity.

Hidden Hands in the Middle East

The Western public has been so poorly served, in recent years, by its supposed world-class media organisations that any semblance of a coherent narrative explaining world events and tying together their deeper, underlying, causes to one another, has almost completely disappeared from the programming of the major networks. More often than not, international affairs are presented to us as a series of apparently unrelated events that simply “occur”, in most cases without any meaningful context or background being provided, or else, with a completely one-sided and deliberately misleading interpretation being force-fed to us by our “impartial” broadcasters.

10 Quotes From Big Names Across The Political Spectrum That Are Suspicious About The Cause Of Epstein’s Death

Was there a conspiracy to kill Jeffrey Epstein? Over the past 24 hours, the mainstream media has been full of stories about the various "conspiracy theories" that have sprung up around Jeffrey Epstein’s death. And of course the term "conspiracy theory" has essentially become a shorthand way for the mainstream media to dismiss any explanation that does not fit with the "official" interpretation of a particular news event. So far, the mainstream media is pushing the narrative that Jeffrey Epstein’s death was a "suicide" even though we don’t actually have any evidence that this is true yet.

Bokhari: The Demise of Google’s Free Speech Movement

Free speech at Google is long since dead. But it didn’t go down without a fight. As the tech giant embarked on its self-described “shift towards censorship”, many employees inside the company spoke out against it — and were rewarded with harassment and discrimination for remaining true to Google’s founding values.

Former Google employees tell Breitbart News that felt they were forced out of the company and retaliated against because they stood up for free speech and political neutrality. They describe an atmosphere of bullying, in which far-left “social justice warriors” were allowed to smear and intimidate them with little intervention from the company’s HR department.

Hair-Trigger Nuclear Alert Looms Over Kashmir

Two of the world’s most important powers, India and Pakistan, are locked into an extremely dangerous confrontation over the bitterly disputed Himalayan mountain state of Kashmir. Both are nuclear armed.

Kashmir has been a flashpoint since Imperial Britain divided India in 1947. India and Pakistan have fought numerous wars and conflicts over majority Muslim Kashmir. China controls a big chunk of northern Kashmir known as Aksai Chin.

In 1949, the UN mandated a referendum to determine if Kashmiris wanted to join Pakistan or India. Not surprisingly, India refused to hold the vote. But there are some Kashmiris who want an independent state, though a majority seek to join Pakistan.

This last minute deal between Washington and Ankara is in response to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s announcement on Sunday that Turkey was prepared to carry out a unilateral cross-border operation to push back Kurdish militias on the Syrian Turkish border east of the Euphrates river, if the Washington didn’t cut ties with the Kurdish militias and create a safe zone in northern Syria.

The U.S. has the best Congress and White House that money can buy

The Institute is named after the sixth US President John Quincy Adams, who famously made a speech while Secretary of State in which he cautioned that while the United States of America would always be sympathetic to the attempts of other countries to fight against dominance by the imperial European powers, “she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.”

The Quincy Institute self-defines as a foundation dedicated to a responsible and restrained foreign policy with the stated intention of “mov[ing] US foreign policy away from endless war and toward vigorous diplomacy in the pursuit of international peace.” It is seeking to fund an annual budget of $5-6 million, enough to employ twenty or more staffers.

US Lobster Exports To China Plunge Amid Escalating Trade War

VOA News interviewed a business owner and a trade official in Maine following a massive drop in lobster exports due to President Trump's escalating trade war. Their comments on the trade war are an eye-opener that contradicts the president's claim that his trade duties on China won't hurt American firms.

VOA spoke with Vice President of sales and marketing at Maine Coast, Sheila Adams, who said her company saw a 20% plunge in business activity in a matter of days last July after China retaliated against US tariffs on Chinese goods by raising duties on US food and agricultural exports, which included live lobsters.

"Essentially what's happened is about 80% of our sales into mainland China have gone away," she said.

"And that's purely because our product is simply just too expensive compared to the Canadian because of the additional 25% tariff that was levied."

Law enforcement officials previously said Epstein, 66, hanged himself and was found in a jail cell Saturday morning at roughly 7:30 am. Previously, on July 23, "Epstein was found passed out in his jail cell with marks on his neck.

Epstein was under extra security in a special unit of Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan - but he wasn't under suicide watch, a prison official told the Times.

Denmark's 3rd Largest Bank Is Now Paying People To Take Out A Mortgage

After an intense pow-wow between the administration, Congressional leaders and the Federal Reserve, the Negative Mortgage Rate Program (NMRP) is born. The program is simple. Homeowners will be paid to borrow. The Federal Reserve declares that the NMRP is a brilliant extension of NIRP (negative interest rate policy), because it will benefit everyone, not just the 1%ers.

Here's how it works: No downpayment needed. 100% financing.

No payments needed. This is the reverse of the negative amortization loans during the subprime era. In other words, it is a negative negative amortization, or neg-neg-am loan. The loan balance will decrease instead of increase.

Normalizing Negative Interest: It’s Flabbergasting How Closely Media Parrots the Government

Negative interest rates have been making big headlines lately, as several countries and big banks are now experimenting with the unorthodox monetary policy. While typically viewed as a last-ditch effort to shock some life back into struggling economies, these policies are getting a shiny new spin thanks to mainstream media outlets promoting government talking points and agendas. Instead of facing the ominous problems of inflation and devaluation of money, now there’s a new solution: normalize the negative, and sweep the consequences under the rug...
