MUSLIMS IN ‘RAT PACKS’ Attacking European Men, Women And Children In The Streets!! The Left says, “Open the borders for refugees” or “No travel ban.” I’ve never heard anything more idiotic in my life. This could have been us. Do you want your family members to be attacked by Radical Islamists? I sure don’t, and I’m sure you don’t either. If you ever hear someone say, “Let the refugees in.” show them this article and tell them that this could be us and to shut their mouth. Here are some terror attacks dating back to 2015 in Europe.

Melania could have 24 staffers, like Michelle, but part of the Trump plan was to streamline the White House staff, which under the Obamas had become a bloated bureaucracy. Michelle was such a prima donna that she employed numerous staffers, including schedulers, directors, planners, associates, social and press secretaries, and other assistants.
So, how much is Melania saving tax-payers? Approximately $5.1 million dollars a year, but that’s not all. Overall, the Trump White House is saving a total of $22 million dollars. “President Trump’s ‘leaner White House payroll,’ as reported by Forbes, is saving taxpayers $22 million overall. This information is verified by the fact that the current salaries for White House employees was made public on Friday. Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner are taking a total salary of zero dollars,” according to Inquisitr.

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - At a Shanghai mall, rows of "man pods" equipped with video games are proving a big hit, providing a refuge for hundreds of weary husbands and boyfriends as their other halves shop until they drop. The first pods were launched at the Global Harbor shopping mall in Shanghai in June, and since then over 1,000 men have used the facilities, according to Ruwo Smart Technology, the company behind the scheme. "Man pod" users can recline in a chair with a large screen and play video games while enclosed behind clear glass walls that shut out the bustle of other shoppers.

The New York Post reported Friday that incoming White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci's wife filed for divorce because of his political ambitions.  Citing "multiple sources," The Post's Page Six reported that Scaramucci's wife, Deidre Ball, filed for divorce after three years of marriage because of Scaramucci's efforts to get close to President Donald Trump. Ball, who worked as a vice president for SkyBridge Capital, the firm founded by Scaramucci in 2005, reportedly "despises" Trump, according to the Page Six report.

A mother and father take their 6-year old son to a family nude beach...
As the boy walks along the sand, he notices that many of the women have boobs bigger than his mother's, so he goes back to ask her why.

She tells her son, 'The bigger they are, the sillier the lady is.'

The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the ocean but returns to tell his mother that many of the men have larger things than his dad does.

She replies, 'The bigger they are, the dumber the man is'

Again satisfied with her answer, the boy goes back to the ocean to play. Shortly thereafter, the boy returns and promptly tells his mother:

'Daddy is talking to the silliest lady on the beach, and the longer he talks, the dumber he gets.

IN THE WONDERFUL UK- A girl of 15 was raped at a train station in Birmingham before being sexually assaulted by the driver of a car she flagged down to help her. British Transport Police said the first attack happened in a secluded part of Birmingham's Witton railway station, close to Aston Villa's stadium, Villa Park.
The teenager was with a friend when she was approached by a man who led her away to a quieter part of the station. It was here that he raped her some time between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.
Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help.But after getting in the car she was then assaulted a second time by a second different man.
The first attacker is described by police as an Asian man in his early 20s with light skin, brown eyes, skinny build and about 6ft tall.
The second attacker is also described as Asian, in his early 20s, 5ft 6in or 5ft 7in tall, and of large build with a tight-cropped beard, and was wearing a blue jumper and black jeans. ASIAN???

A firefighter was working on the engine outside the station, when he noticed
a little girl nearby in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides, and a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle.
The girl was wearing a firefighter's helmet. The wagon was being pulled by her dog and her cat.
The firefighter walked over to take a closer look.
'That sure is a nice fire truck,' the firefighter said with admiration.
'Thanks,' the girl replied.
The firefighter looked a little closer. The girl had tied the wagon to her dog's collar and to the cat's testicles.
'Little partner,' the firefighter said, 'I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar, I think you could go faster.'
The little girl replied thoughtfully, 'You're probably right, but then I wouldn't have a siren.'
Have a great day!

A former Miami Dolphins cheerleader has split from her husband in what is being described as the “Trump divorce.” The woman issued a press release stating that the couple were forced to end their marriage due to their political differences.
In the statement, 37-year-old Lynn Aronberg, who once cheered for the Florida football team, was described as a “staunch Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump,” the Palm Beach Post reported. Her husband, Florida state attorney for Palm Beach County Dave Aronberg, is a Democrat.
According to the statement, their political differences drove the couple apart after Lynn Aronberg’s favor for the president caused her to feel “increasingly isolated in the marriage."

Five members of a Pakistani family under criminal investigation for allegedly misusing their positions as computer administrators for dozens of Democrats in the House of Representatives were paid at least $4 million from July 2009 to the present, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.
Evidence suggests some of the dozens of House Democrats — many of whom serve on the intelligence, homeland security and foreign affairs committees — who employed the suspects were inexplicably paying people they rarely or never saw. See the interactive graphic at the end of this story for the names of the employing representatives.
The suspects had full access to the emails and office computer files of the members for whom they worked. A focus of the investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police is an off-site server on which congressional data was allegedly loaded without the knowledge of authorities.

In an interview with FOX Business’ Liz MacDonald, Three Square Market CEO Todd Westby said the microchip implant is the next after the self-driving vehicles.
“A lot of people have talked about it, but nobody has actually done it and we felt it was the right time to go ahead with this new technology,” he said. THE BEGINNING OF THE MARK OF THE BEAST??

A golfer was involved in a terrible car crash and was rushed to the hospital. Just before he was put under, the surgeon popped in to see him.

"I have some good news and some bad news," says the surgeon. "The bad news is that I have to remove your right arm!"

"Oh God no!" cries the man "My golfing is over!

Please Doc, what's the good news?"

"The good news is, I have another one to replace it with, but it's a woman's arm and I'll need your permission before I go ahead with the transplant"

"Go for it doc," says the man, "as long as I can play golf again."

The operation went well and a year later the man was out on the golf course when he bumped into the surgeon.

"Hi, how's the new arm?" asks the surgeon. "Just great," says the businessman. "I'm playing the best golf of my life

My new arm has a much finer touch and my putting has really improved." "That's great," said the surgeon.

"Not only that," continued the golfer, "my handwriting has improved, I've learned how to sew my own clothes and I've even taken up painting landscapes in watercolors."

"That's unbelievable!" said the surgeon, "I'm so glad to hear the transplant was such a great success.

Are you having any side effects?"

"Well, just two, said the golfer, "I have trouble parallel parking and every time I get an erection, I get a headache."

Grifters Cash In on Subsidized Housing- As if the breeding program known as the welfare state were not producing government dependents quickly enough, Big Government has been subsidizing housing for needy tenants who do not exist:

According to the inspector general, Beverly Place Apartments in Groves billed the Department of Housing and Urban Development for “at least 97 tenants who did not exist or whose income eligibility was either falsified or unsupported.”

A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage. The incident points to the growing use of drones in wartime, particularly off the shelf civilian products harnessed to conduct sabotage and other attacks.
The drone is believed to have carried a ZMG-1 thermite grenade. Thermite, a combination of iron oxide (rust) and aluminum powder. The stuff burns extremely hot and easily could have gotten through wooden crates to detonate the munitions inside. The ammo dump is just 60 miles from the Russian/Ukrainian border, where fighting recently took place.
According to PM contributor David Hambling writing at Scout Warrior, it's not the first time military bases in Ukraine have been hit by drones. A similar attempt to blow up the Balakliya base took place in December 2015, when drones dropped 14 grenades. The fires were extinguished by Ukrainian servicemen, and one grenade, a ZMG-1, was recovered.

The total investment in the project will be $ 4.5 billion, and AEP projects $7 billion in customer savings over a 25-year time frame.

70 years ago , President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act, creating the Department of Defense, the National Security Council, the Joint Chiefs of Staff — and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Sixteen years later — just one month after the Kennedy assassination — Truman published a bombshell in The Washington Post: “I have never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak-and-dagger operations… It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of Government… so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue.”
When it comes to behind-the-scenes intrigue, no one could out-sinister Allen Dulles, director of the CIA from 1953 to 1961. Dulles’s job, simply put, was to hijack the US government — for the benefit of the wealthy.

In a pointed declaration aimed squarely at China, whose island-building and militarisation in the sea has unnerved western powers, the British foreign secretary said that when the ships came into service they would be sent to the Asia-Pacific region as one of their first assignments. “One of the first things we will do with the two new colossal aircraft carriers that we have just built is send them on a freedom of navigation operation to this area,” Johnson said in Sydney on Thursday, “to vindicate our belief in the rules-based international system and in the freedom of navigation through those waterways which are absolutely vital for world trade.”

Germany's Angela Merkel is often referred to as the "climate chancellor" because of her impassioned stand on climate protection, which has included the muscular arm-twisting of laggard nations in Europe and beyond -- as she demonstrated at the G20 summit in Hamburg in earlier this month. And during her three full terms in office, she's guided Germany's vaunted Energiewende, or renewable energy transition, which has vastly increased the number of renewables in the power mix to make up a third of the country's electricity supply today -- and an astounding 85% of power generation on particularly sunny, windy days. But Germany's headline success story has a dark underside that is usually overlooked in all the fanfare. Greenhouse gas emissions in Germany have not sunk significantly since 2009, but rather have stagnated at about 900 million tons of carbon dioxide a year: the highest in Europe by far. (France's, for example, are less than half as much.)

Experts say this shows we should equally prioritize feeling positive and working out.

It is one of the worst border disputes between the regional rivals in more than 30 years. The road stands on territory at the point where China, India and Bhutan meet. The standoff began last month when Bhutan, a close ally of India, discovered Chinese workers trying to extend the road. India responded by sending troops and equipment to halt the construction. China, the more powerful of the two, angrily denounced the move and demanded that India pull back. Now soldiers from the two powers are squaring off, separated by only a few hundred feet.

Lesbians adopting little boys only to castrate them? Six years ago, a lesbian couple in California thought it would be appropriate to let their child decide that he wanted gender reassignment surgery.
[Adoptive guardians] Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel reasoning was that children with gender identity disorder forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide. That’s bull – they flat out adopted for the express purpose of castration and we all know it. Let’s call this what it is: Disfiguring, mutilating, chemically castrating a boy – and hoping to get a girl out of it.
Thomas’s transition into a make-pretend girl began at age eight. His guardians inflicted hormone suppressants to prevent him from developing a male voice, broad shoulders, and facial hair. If this doesn’t qualify as child abuse, the statutes need to be rewritten.

It is part of the conventional wisdom of our time that people who marry become healthier than they were when they were single. But is that really so? In “Does marriage protect health? A birth cohort comparison,” a study published this month in Social Science Quarterly, sociologist Dmitry Tumin provided a compelling answer to that question. He examined men’s marriages and women’s, marriages of people who were born in three different decades (1955-1964, 1965-1974, and 1975-1984), and people who had been married for three different lengths of time (up to 4 years, 5 to 9 years, and 10 years or longer).

These results show that half of the differences between whether families were socially mobile or not, can be attributed to genetic differences between them. 'This tells us that if we want to reduce educational inequalities, it's important to understand children's genetic propensity for educational achievement. That way, we can better identify those who require more support.'

John McCain’s foundation is funded by Saudis, Rothschilds & Soros. - Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ) has an eponymous foundation, the McCain Institute for International Leadership, that is less known and much smaller in scale, but rivals the Clinton Foundation in corruption. Note: Don’t confuse the McCain Institute with either:
The philanthropic John and Cindy McCain Family Foundation that, according to NonProfitFacts.com, claimed a paltry $1,002 in income and $6,013 in assets in 2013; or The McCain Foundation, which has nothing to do with John McCain, but was founded by McCain Foods. The Institute describes itself as a tax-exempt non-profit and “non-partisan do-tank dedicated to advancing character-driven global leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity – in the United States and around the world.” Reporting for The Daily Caller on June 19, 2017, Richard Pollock writes that the Institute began with $9 million left over from McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign, and has become a huge operation, featuring upwards of 80 people including dozens of full time staff and board members. Associated with Arizona State University, the McCain Institute has assets valued at $8.1 million.

With a growing number of Americans going through the process to legally carry a concealed sidearm, it is going to be much harder for the gun control lobby and their allies on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures to restrict where and when people can carry.

STEVE JOB'S LAST WORDS


I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
But accounts of Steve Jobs’ final moments by his family members and by biographer Walter Isaacson make no mention of a deathbed essay or final words uttered by Steve Jobs about the dangers of a life devoted to pursuing wealth.
Steve Jobs’ sister, the novelist Mona Simpson, recounted the Apple co-founders final moments in a eulogy that was published by the New York Times at the time of his death in October 2011. In the eulogy, Simpson recalled Steve Jobs’ final words and his final hours:
He seemed to be climbing.
But with that will, that work ethic, that strength, there was also sweet Steve’s capacity for wonderment, the artist’s belief in the ideal, the still more beautiful later.
Steve’s final words, hours earlier, were monosyllables, repeated three times.
Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them.
Steve’s final words were:

OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.

Is 78-year-old “Auntie” Maxine Waters seriously going to make a run for the White House in 2020? Speculation is increasing as it’s revealed the California congresswoman and darling of Trump haters nationwide will be making an appearance in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Sunday.
“According to an invitation, obtained by WMUR from Democratic sources, Waters will be in the state on July 23 for the picnic to be held at the Miller Farm in New Durham,” WMUR reports, where she will hobnob with the Strafford County Democratic Committee.
OH PLEASE YES!!!

Cell phone video posted on social media shows a Florida man drowning in a pond and has the voices of teens who stood by recording and mocking him and laughing. No one called for help, and the man died. Police call the teens' actions "beyond heartless."
The video shows Jamel Dunn, 31, his head barely visible, getting into deeper and deeper water July 9. Five teenagers were recording it, and in the background here is some of what is heard: "We're not gonna help your (expletive). Shouldn't have got in. Let him drown, what the heck." Police say they don't know why Dunn entered the water. But when he did, the teens were watching him from a bank. Yvonne Martinez of the Cocoa Police Department said: "Laughed at him, told him that they weren't going to help him or rescue him, and taunted and laughed at him the entire time."

Heidi Johnson’s son was 13, deeply in adolescence and in that stage where he lashes out. He told her he shouldn’t have to deal with her rules and should be independent. So she wrote a strict but loving “Mom’s not a fool” letter.

Suppose you wanted to build the perfect dog from scratch. What would be the key ingredients in the recipe? Loyalty and smarts would be musts. Cuteness would be as well, perhaps with gentle eyes, and a curly, bushy tail that wags in joy in anticipation of your appearance. And you might toss in a mutt-like mottled fur that seems to say, “I may not be beautiful, but you know that I love you and I need you.” You needn’t bother trying. Lyudmila Trut and Dmitri Belyaev have already built it for you. The perfect dog. Except it’s not a dog, it’s a fox. A domesticated one. They built it quickly—mind-bogglingly fast for constructing a brand new biological creature. It took them less than 60 years, a blink of an eye compared to the time it took for wolves to become dogs. They built it in the often unbearable negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit cold of Siberia, where Lyudmila and, before her, Dmitri, have been running one of the longest, most incredible experiments on behavior and evolution ever devised.

Scientists in Israel are exploring another medical use for marijuana: Their research indicates that a compound in the plant helps heal bone fractures. The new study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, found that broken bones healed faster and stronger when the patient received the non-psychoactive compound cannabidiol, or CBD.
“We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue,” said Dr. Yankel Gabet, one of the lead researchers, in a statement. “After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”

SINGAPORE: Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen has offered the Singapore Armed Forces' (SAF) assistance to counter the threat of terrorism in Philippines together with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) said on Wednesday (Jul 19).  In a media release, MINDEF said the SAF's assistance will include a Republic of Singapore Air Force C-130 transport aircraft, use of the SAF's urban training villages for AFP troops, and a detachment of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to enhance the AFP's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, MINDEF said.  The C-130 will be used to deliver humanitarian supplies to the evacuees from Marawi, it added.

Germany has taken in more refugees than any other European nation over the last three years, and doctors and activists are warning that certain inhumane traditions have arrived with them. A German nongovernmental organization, Terre des Femmes, said Tuesday that 13,000 underage girls living in Germany are at risk of being forced to undergo genital mutilation. The number increased by 4,000 in comparison to last year because most of the affected girls had only recently moved to Germany from countries such as Iraq, Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia, where genital mutilation is common among parts of the population and is considered an important step toward adulthood. Described by UNICEF as a violation of girls’ “right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment,” female genital mutilation nevertheless continues to be a common tradition across much of Africa and parts of Asia.

The European Commission threatened Wednesday to launch a sanction procedure against Poland, putting Warsaw on a path that could ultimately see it stripped of its EU voting rights. The warning was a reaction to new Polish legislation tightening political control over the country’s courts, which Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans said could “put the judiciary under full political control of the government.” Timmermans also said the Commission plans to launch an infringement procedure against Poland next week for breaching EU law.

Emmanuel Macron’s rise to power is rekindling the Franco-German relationship — at least on the surface. When Angela Merkel gave her support for plans to develop a European fighter jet in Paris last week, France’s president hailed a “profound revolution” in their cooperation — never mind that costs, delivery times and potential developers for the jet are as yet unknown. That project, just like plans to boost French and German language training in each other’s countries, underscores the eagerness to highlight Franco-German initiatives. Merkel has endorsed, albeit in the broadest possible terms, Macron’s calls for deeper eurozone integration, complete with a budget and finance minister. But while goodwill abounds — one French diplomat told a local paper that “everyone is overflowing with ideas” — the cheerful mood does not amount to a revolution. Serious hangups remain when it comes to the German trade surplus, French reform credibility, solidarity between EU countries, bailouts and defense spending, among other topics.

Housework was a woman's job, but one evening, Janice arrived home from work to find the children bathed, one load of laundry in the washer and another in the dryer Dinner was on the stove, and the table set. She was astonished!

It turns out that Chuck had read an article that said, 'Wives who work full-time and had to do their own housework were too tired to have sex'.

The night went very well. The next day, Janice told her Red Hat friends all about it. 'We had a great dinner. Chuck even cleaned up the kitchen. He helped the kids do their homework, folded all the laundry and put it away. I really enjoyed the evening.'

'But what about afterward?' asked her friends. 


'Oh, that.......... Chuck was too tired.'



God is good
