    Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the 650,000-member Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), endorsed the Safe Students Act of Representative Thomas Massie’s (R-Ky.) on Wednesday. In his endorsement, Gottlieb noted that the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, an act that made schools into gun-free zones and that would be repealed by the Safe Students Act, has been an unqualified failure: The Gun-Free School Zones Act was passed by Congress in 1990, and it’s been a disaster. It has not prevented a single tragic school shooting, but instead has given students, teachers, administrators, and parents a false sense of security that evaporates the moment some madman ignores the law and invades a school campus to commit mayhem. By declaring schools to be “gun-free,” the law has simply turned schools into risk-free, target-rich environments for disturbed people willing to harm innocent children and teens. On the other hand, Massie’s bill, if it becomes law, would allow local and state jurisdictions the freedom to decide on the issue for themselves. Said Gottlieb: But Massie’s effort, which follows similar attempts in 2017 and 2018, is a common-sense approach to a serious problem. It would allow teachers to carry firearms for self-defense and the defense of students in emergencies. As the congressman noted in a news release, “Gun-free zones prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves, and create vulnerable populations that are targeted by criminals.” Gottlieb thinks that the third time is a charm: The time has come to trash this ineffective mandate and make the nation’s schools safe again by allowing teachers and administrators the means to fight back in an emergency. In his press release announcing his third try at getting the bill to the floor of the House for consideration, Massie referred to a gun study by researcher John Lott while expounding on the necessity of his bill: “Gun-free zones are ineffective and make our schools less safe. 98 percent of mass public shootings since 1950 have occurred in places where citizens are banned from having guns. Banks, churches, sports stadiums, and many of my colleagues in Congress are protected with firearms. Yet children inside the classroom are too frequently left vulnerable.”

    That's nonsense, he specifically implied that it might be medically necessary and there was no reason not to enshrine the prohibition in law so that the DoD couldn't change their policy under another POTUS, he was pandering to the left.

    His "obstruction" reason is pure garbage, he has no leg to stand on regarding a reason and now he voted against impeachment so he's got absolutely nothing.

    LOL The reason? The reason he endorsed is pure garbage. He has no leg to stand on nitpicking about the reason. He's exposed himself as a phony, the defense of his call for impeachment was that Trump supposedly deserved it so the reason didn't matter.

    Nothing in the Constitution stands in the way of barring the military from spending money on insanity and it might not have been resolved correctly in 3 months. He was virtue signalling to the left and the perverts or he was actually supporting the pervert agenda. He was also voting for wasteful spending.

    President Trump on Thursday night announced he's nominating attorney Gene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to replace Alex Acosta as secretary of labor. The surprise move -- which top Republicans privately pushed for -- was a visible manifestation of the close personal bond Trump has forged with the Scalia family in recent years. The confirmation process for Justice Neil Gorsuch, who ultimately filled Justice Scalia's seat, sparked the connection. Scalia, 55, is currently a partner in the Washington office of the international law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. He is expected to face headwinds from Democrats in his Senate confirmation hearings, in part because he has routinely represented major corporations in key cases involving workers' rights. In 2005, Walmart hired Scalia to defend against whistleblower lawsuits by employees who alleged wrongdoing in the company. Scalia also helped overturn a Maryland law in 2006 that would have required big companies like Walmart to spend more on employee healthcare in the state. That law ran afoul of a federal statute aimed at reducing red tape for certain national employers, who otherwise would have to afford significantly different benefits to employees depending on their state of employment. The Wall Street Journal wrote in 2012 that Scalia "has emerged as one of the industry's go-to guys for challenging financial regulations." In some of his biggest cases, according to the Journal, Scalia "focused on how regulators analyze the cost of new rules, building a legal strategy that echoes a political argument of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney—that added regulations are holding back the economy." "The government has to adhere to the law also and this is a country where if the government doesn't adhere to the law you can take them to court and get a remedy," Scalia said at the time.

    Philippine Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin said on Tuesday that the Philippine Army wants to buy 74,000 M-16 assault rifles with accessories from the US, following President Duterte's 180-degree stance about not purchasing defense equipment from the West. Locsin made the request to US Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs David Stilwell on Tuesday who was in Manila for the 8th US-Philippines Bilateral Strategic Dialogue, reported Philstar Global. "I told him that to concretize words of US-Phl amity into action is to sell us what Pompeo was told we need and want to buy 74,000 brand new M16s – w/3 clips each. And Duterte will finish all security threats to our democracy. Not a gift; we will pay. We're waiting," Locsin said on Twitter. This was Stilwell's first trip to the region since becoming Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs last month. He discussed strengthening the two countries' economic and defensive ties and promoting regional stability in the Indo-Pacific region, including free and unobstructed access to waters in the South China Sea. "As a treaty ally, our partnership with the Philippines is critical for realizing our shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific, with sovereign thriving nations," Stilwell said in a statement, adding that a strong bilateral alliance "deters aggression and promotes regional stability." Last month Duterte had a change of heart in purchasing American defense equipment since he said he now likes President Trump.

    Right there he is feeding the trans insanity. There is no scientific debate on whether tranny surgery is medically necessary, it isn't, in fact it is harmful both mentally and physically. The measure could have saved up to $3.7 billion over the next decade by refusing to indulge these potentially mentally ill individuals with genital mutilation surgery and other health care services pertaining to their condition. The supposed fiscal conservative voted in effect to expend federal funds on this social project. After feeling the heat from his constituents regarding this vote, Amash first passed the buck, blaming former Defense Secretary James Mattis to his support of military transgenderism. “Sec. Mattis and the White House urged us not to adopt Hartzler Amendment all the administration wants is three months to review everything,” he said. The administration never confirmed Amash’s statement. It does not seem plausible that Amash, who has emerged as the top opponent to Trump in the Republican Party, would take orders from his White House.

    FaceApp, the popular application that has become a viral trend for showing what people would look like after they age 30 years, isn't well known to be a Russia-based piece of software. Its even lesser known that the terms and conditions of the app grant it ‘perpetual, irrevocable’ rights to your content, according to a new report from Fox 29. The app has skyrocketed in popularity over the last couple of weeks because it allows users to digitally alter their age. Many celebrities have even joined in and posted photographs of what their elder selves may look like. More than 1 million users have downloaded the app from Google and it is now the number one app in the Apple store. But, what most users don't know, is that the terms and conditions of the software "allow it to access to use, modify, adapt and publish any images that a user offers up in exchange for its free artificial intelligence service."

    As far back as 2013, China's macro-economic data has been 'questionably' smoothed at best, and outright fake at worst. Whether it is trade data ("never been faker" than in 2016) or aggregate production (2018's massive GDP distortions), as economist Nouriel Roubini once asserted, China just makes its numbers up. And, as we pointed out earlier this week, this month was no exception, when following China GDP's dramatic slowing to just 6.2% YoY - the slowest since record began - there was a delightful surprise to appease those who are wondering whether record credit injections and more easing measures than during the financial crisis had any effect at all. To wit, China retail sales and industrial production rebounded handsomely with the former spiking 9.8% YoY - the most since March 2018. There's just one thing though - the entire surge in retail sales (and industrial production) seems to have been triggered by an almost unprecedented sudden surge in auto sales to - who else - the government itself, in the form large, state-owned enterprises. Think Cash for Clunkers on steroids - if the clunkers belonged to the Federal Government, and the new cars purchased were made by the Government. Yet there was one critical data set in China's manipulated economic data spreadsheet, which failed to get the royal goalseek treatment, one with dramatic implications for the broader market. According to Commodore Research, Chinese June data showed that furniture sales in China totaled only 18.4 billion yuan last month. This marks a year-on-year decline of 14% from the 21.3 billion yuan in sales that was reported last year for June 2018’s furniture sales. This is puzzling in light of the official Chinese data according to which the local housing market continues to hum along, firing on all cylinders, with the average, 70-city primary market property price rising 10.5% Y/Y in May.

    One of the more confusing discrepancies in recent months was how, despite the weakening in the yuan and the escalating trade war between the US and China, there was virtually no drop in Chinese (official) reserves and thus, no capital flight. Well, "confusion no more", because as Goldman points out, amid the lingering trade tensions and continued depreciation of CNY in the first half of June, the bank's preferred gauge of FX flows showed a dramatic jump in June outflows to the tune of $20 billion compared to an inflow of $13 billion in May, while the exporters’ trade repatriation ratio fell further in June. At the same time, the bond market saw a net inflow of around $11BN, modestly lower than the $16BN in May. According to Goldman's calculation using the SAFE dataset of “onshore FX settlement”, non-banks showed net FX outflows of around US$13bn (vs. an inflow of US$19bn in May). This was composed of US$23bn in net outflow via outright spot transactions, and US$11bn in net inflow via freshly entered and cancelled forward transactions. Meanwhile, another SAFE dataset on “cross-border RMB flows” shows that on a net basis, the amount of RMB flow from onshore to offshore was around US$7bn. As a result, Goldman's usual "preferred" gauge (FX settlement data mentioned above and the cross-border RMB flows) showed a net FX outflow of around US$20bn in June, vs an inflow of US$13bn in May. According to Goldman, "trade tensions lingered in June and CNY depreciated in the first half of the month, contributing to the increased FX outflows" which of course were visible well prior thanks to the surge in cryptos since April, a big part of which was due to Chinese capital flight, which however failed to be documented in official data. Until now, that is. Meanwhile, exporters and importers’ net trade repatriation ratio continued to decline to 0.2 in June, from 0.4 in May and 0.9 in Q1 this year, implying exporters and importers having less incentives than before to repatriate their trade proceeds back when facing heightened trade uncertainties in June; this has an adverse impact on net capital flows.

    Thousands of Puerto Ricans took to the streets of Old San Juan to demand the ouster of Governor Ricardo Rosselló following corruption investigations and the leaking of 889 pages of text messages revealing him to be vindictive, sexist and profane - including against those who died following Hurricane Maria. Demonstrations started with hundreds of people, then grew to the thousands. The growth was reflected on Twitter as the hashtag #RickyRenuncia (Resign Ricky), a shortened version of his name, Ricardo, and it was trending worldwide Monday. Until Wednesday night, the rallies had been largely peaceful. On Monday night, about two dozen police officers were injured during a protest, and at least five protesters were arrested, authorities said. -NBC News On Wednesday night protesters broke past a barricade at the governor's mansion, resulting in the deployment of tear gas. "By early hours Thursday, the old city of San Juan resembled a war zone, with police chasing protesters through the streets while firing rubber bullets, gas canisters and what appeared to be flash bombs," according to NPR.

    If you have been tempted to dismiss the growing progressive insurgency within the Democratic caucus as a mirage produced by a handful of outspoken voices - as Nancy Pelosi has suggested - well, think again. In what appears to be one of the most deliberate examples yet of the Democrats progressive caucus sabotaging the party's own agenda because it didn't get exactly what it wanted, the Hill reports that some House Dems are prepared to scuttle a bill to raise the national minimum wage to $15 an hour if a procedural motion from the Republicans is added to the bill. It's meant to be a gesture to moderate Democrats who have sometimes voted with Republicans on procedural issues: The progressives are in no mood to compromise. Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Mark Pocan, the co-chairs of the House Progressive Caucus, issued a statement accusing the Republicans of supporting a "disingenuous" motion that would amount to a "poison pill".

    The U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced Thursday that BOEM proposes to offer 77.8 million acres for a region-wide lease sale. The sale is scheduled for August 21, 2019, and would include all available unleased areas in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. “The Trump administration is laser focused on developing our domestic offshore oil and gas resources in an environmentally conscious manner, and the Gulf of Mexico is front and center for that development,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “The expansion of America’s energy sector has been a major economic driver for the American people in keeping energy prices low. Our work in the Gulf of Mexico to ensure America leads the world in energy production is paramount.” Lease Sale 253 will include approximately 14,585 unleased blocks, located from three to 231 miles offshore, in the Gulf’s Western, Central and Eastern planning areas in water depths ranging from nine to more than 11,115 feet. Terms include a 12.5% royalty rate for leases in less than 200m of water depth, and a royalty rate of 18.75% for all other leases.
