Police in Auburn, Washington state, appealed to the public to find an adult male and two young males who allegedly robbed a gas station clerk after he collapsed on the floor following an apparent medical emergency.

“While the clerk is on the ground unconscious, the two teenage males exit and enter the store a couple of times stealing merchandise and taking all the money from the cash register,” according to the department.

‘He was a superhero’: Man stabbed while defending woman from attacker in Starbucks, cops say

Illegal immigrants cited in theft of 39 million Social Security numbers

Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records.”

The group said that there is a “thriving black market” used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.

Report: Aborted Baby Body Parts Traffickers May Be Raking In U.S. Tax Dollars

A new report shows that an organization that harvests aborted baby organs for research has been charging more than what is legally reimbursable.

The 11-page report details how Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), which is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ), charged universities a significantly marked-up price for the organs it harvested from aborted babies.

Federal law prohibits the sale or purchase of fetal tissue — that is, human body parts harvested from pre-born or aborted babies — for “valuable consideration.” The law does, however, allow reimbursing baby body part suppliers for costs “associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.”

This is the very workaround that undercover videos showed abortion giant Planned Parenthood using to make money from human remains. That got it hauled into Congress for investigations but as of yet has cost PP none of its half trillion in annual federal funding.

Court Dumps Injunction on MO Abortion Law, Leaving 2 Planned Parenthood Facilities in Non-Compliance

Jefferson City, MO — In an exciting court victory Monday, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a 2017 lower court injunction that barred Missouri from enforcing an abortion law that required abortionists to maintain hospital privileges in the communities in which they operate, and mandated that facilities that provide abortions be licensed as ambulatory surgical facilities.

A statement issued the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, indicated that enforcement of the law would begin immediately.

The injunction on the long-standing abortion laws had opened the door for abortions to resume in Columbia and Kansas City Planned Parenthood facilities in 2017. However, neither facility is expected to qualify under the licensing requirements.

That will leave Missouri with just one abortion facility – a troubled Planned Parenthood in St. Louis with a long record of botched abortion medical emergencies.

Politics/Deep State:

Jason Chaffetz: President Obama tries to re-write history on Benghazi

In a brazen attempt to re-write history, President Barack Obama in a speech on Friday blamed “the politics of resentment and paranoia,” which he said had found a home in the Republican Party, for “wild conspiracy theories – like those surrounding Benghazi.”

What a reprehensible way to frame an event that killed four Americans while they waited for rescue and protection they deserved from people Barack Obama never sent.

Of course, you only heard about Obama’s characterization of Benghazi if you pay attention to conservative media. By and large the mainstream press excluded references to Benghazi from their reporting of the speech.

Strzok-Page texts on ‘media leak strategy’ fuel Trump fury at DOJ: ‘NOTHING is being done’

In a new letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., raised “grave concerns” about an “apparent systemic culture of media leaking” among high-level FBI and Justice Department officials to release information damaging to Trump.

He cited two text exchanges in April 2017 between now-fired FBI agent Strzok and former FBI attorney Page, in which the two discuss the bureau’s “media leak strategy.”

“So terrible, and NOTHING is being done at DOJ or FBI – but the world is watching, and they get it completely,” Trump tweeted Tuesday, in reference to a Fox News report about the texts.

Fitton on New Strzok-Page Texts: ‘Corrupted’ Mueller Probe Needs to Be Shut Down

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Tuesday newly-revealed text messages between fired FBI official Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page are just more evidence of the anti-Trump bias that was prevalent at the FBI and Justice Department.

Two new texts show the officials discussing a “media leak strategy” amid the Trump-Russia probe.

Kim Jong Un Sends Trump ‘Warm’ Letter

Trump wins dismissal of ‘inciting to riot’ claim over 2016 rally

(Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday won the dismissal of an “inciting to riot” claim brought by three protesters who said they were roughed up at a March 2016 rally in Louisville, Kentucky, where Trump was campaigning for the White House.

By a 3-0 vote, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the protesters did not state a valid claim under Kentucky law, and Trump was protected by the First Amendment because he did not specifically advocate imminent lawless action.

Separatists launch ‘autumn of protests’ on Catalonia Day

BARCELONA, Spain — Hundreds of thousands of Catalan separatists let out a collective shout as they marched along a main artery in Barcelona on Tuesday, marking the first of a series of mass mobilizations demanding independence from Spain and the release of several high-profile secessionists from jail.

With the official slogan “Let’s Make the Catalan Republic” printed on pink T-shirts and signs, protesters went silent at 5.14 p.m., which on a 24-hour clock is 1714 — the year when Barcelona fell in the Spanish War of Succession.

Romania parliament votes in favor of man/woman marriage only

BUCHAREST, Romania — Romanian Senators on Tuesday approved a measure that would pave the way for the constitution to be changed to explicitly state that marriage is a union of a man and a woman.

Senators voted 107-13 with seven abstentions to allow a referendum that could change the constitution, which currently states that marriage is a union between “spouses.” The vote comes after Parliament’s Chamber of Deputies last year overwhelmingly approved the same measure.

The vote comes after 3 million Romanians signed a petition demanding that the constitution be changed to redefine marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

9/11 Attacks—17 Years Later

Today is the seventeenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, Muslim terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93, which resulted in the death of almost 3,000 innocent Americans. We also remember the first responders who so selflessly and with no hesitation, answered the call to rescue those who were trapped, many of whom lost their own lives in the collapsing towers.

For 17 years the evil of Islam has existed within our borders.  Islam has infiltrated every aspect of our society, including our schools and universities, both political parties, Hollywood, mainstream media, cultural elite, and major corporations.

So, how effective has America’s response been in 17 years?

17 years later…World leaders still call Islam a “religion of peace,” including former Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton and Pope Francis.

17 years later…Muslims are within America’s borders training children to carry out school shootings……..

9/11 Commissioners on Anniversary of Attacks: Jihadists ‘Will Strike Again’

Former New Jersey Gov. Thomas H. Kean, who chaired the commission, and former Florida Rep. Lee H. Hamilton, who served as vice chairman, wrote in a USA Today column that they feared Washington had “made little headway” in the ideological struggle between modern, free societies and the fundamentalist Islamic worldview that drove al-Qaeda’s leadership to organize and execute the 9/11 attacks.

“There were 10,900 terrorist attacks worldwide in 2017, more than five times the number in 2001,” the authors note. “Violent extremist groups have gained footholds in 19 countries across the Middle East, the Horn of Africa and the Sahel, a region along the Sahara Desert stretching across North Africa.”
