    Police have opened criminal cases against nearly 17,000 members of Pakistan's outgoing ruling party over breaking election rules, a statement said on Monday, as the country prepares to go to the polls next week.The latest 16,868 cases, which the police statement said were registered in the eastern province of Punjab over the past four days, come after the party said police had also detained hundreds of members of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the central city of Lahore. The statement gave no details of which election rules were suspected of having been broken. The party's founder, ousted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, facing a conviction in absentia on corruption charges, was jailed last week when he returned to the country seeking to revitalize the PML-N ahead of the July 25 vote. The campaign has been riven by that accusations Pakistan's powerful military is working behind the scenes to skew the contest in favor of ex-cricket hero Imran Khan. The military, which has ruled the nuclear-armed country for almost half its history and ended Sharif's second stint in power in 1999 in a bloodless coup, has repeatedly denied any interference. Khan has also denied colluding with the military.

    It is treason to the shadow empire that has decreed war with Russia, they claim to own America and Trump is defying them and giving aid and comfort to their enemies.

    Certain tax-exempt groups will no longer be required to provide the names and addresses of donors to the IRS on annual forms under guidance that the Treasury Department and IRS released Monday evening. The guidance reflects a priority of conservatives, who have been pushing for the IRS to bar collection of the donor information as part of their efforts to prevent the agency from targeting groups for their political beliefs. Under federal law, charitable organizations that are tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) have to provide to the IRS information about the names and addresses of substantial donors. The IRS has required other types of tax-exempt organizations — including 501(c)(4) social-welfare organizations that advocate for specific policies — to also provide the agency with that information. The names and addresses of donors is generally supposed to be kept private, but this information has improperly been made public in the past, notably in the case of the socially conservative National Organization for Marriage in 2012. Under the new guidance, social-welfare groups and other tax-exempt organizations, besides charitable and political organizations, will no longer have to provide the IRS with the names and addresses of donors. The groups will still have to keep donor information in their own records and make it available for the IRS when the agency needs the information in audits of taxpayers.

    New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has signed a controversial measure that will limit the number of college students and military personnel who can vote in state elections. The bill, signed on Friday and a source of partisan bickering in the statehouse for years, will require registered voters be permanent residents of New Hampshire, obtain a state driver’s license within 60 days of voting and register their vehicles in New Hampshire. The new law will take effect in 2019. New Hampshire is the only U.S. state that does not require registered voters to be permanent residents in order to cast a ballot. The rule allows thousands of college and university students who study in the Granite State to cast votes in the precinct where they live, even if they remain residents of another state, so long as they do not also vote in their home states.

    In a shift from the previous approach of supporting Afghan-led diplomacy, the White House has directed U.S. diplomats to seek talks with the Taliban, The New York Times reported July 15. The Taliban have long wanted to hold talks with the United States because they believe it will bolster their legitimacy, so proposed negotiations toward peace between the United States and the Taliban could actually occur.

    The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who illegally entered the United States from Mexico, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said Monday. Because guardsmen are military personnel and not law enforcement officers, they cannot apprehend illegal immigrants. But CBP officers and Border Patrol agents apprehended thousands of people that guardsmen helped point out. The National Guard’s presence also helped lead to the interception of more than 3,300 others who were turned back before they crossed into the U.S., CBP press secretary Corry Schiermeyer said in an email to the Washington Examiner. The Guard’s deployment has also led to an additional 11,686 pounds of marijuana being seized as a result of their work.

    North Korea pushed back Monday on recent media reports and accusations that North Korea is advancing its weapons programs rather than disarming in pursuit of the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. “American intelligence agencies and media are pushing the opinion that ‘the North is expanding its nuclear and missile facilities’ and ‘North Korea is breaking the promise of complete denuclearization,’” the North Korean propaganda outlet Arirang-Meari asserted Monday, arguing that such “impure public opinion is just canard spread by naysayers on the dialogue within the U.S. society which can secure their interests only when the status of war between the North and the U.S. and military tensions are maintained.” The article did not mention any specific media outlets by name, but the outlet appears to be referring to recent reports from NBC, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Diplomat. When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang last weekend for a two-day visit with senior officials, he pressed North Korea on these developments, raising questions about North Korea’s commitment to denuclearization, Japan’s Yomiuri Shimbun reported Monday. After the secretary departed, North Korea’s foreign ministry called the meeting “regrettable,” describing the U.S. attitude and demands as “cancerous” and “gangster-like.” During the challenging meeting in Pyongyang, North Korean officials firmly denied the accusations that it is moving forward with its weapons development programs. The Arirang-Meari report accused the U.S. of using misleading reports to put “pressure” on North Korea. “The creation of new things is always accompanied by a struggle against old things, and innovations always go with hindrance. should resolve pending issues with a new perspective and way while boldly breaking with the old things,” according to the report. The article followed similar reports in DPRK Today and Uriminzokkiri, according to NK News. “The task of the moment is to respect each other and build up mutual trust. If the American administration is swayed by anti-peace and anti-dialogue forces in dealing with the DPRK, good outcomes can hardly be expected,” the Tongil Sinbo, the North’s external propaganda weekly, argued Sunday.

    I understand your position but the basic problem is the hordes of leftists who inhabit the worst states, so long as they continue to send Representatives and Senators to D.C. the steps you suggest will be blocked. For what it is worth I would not include California in the expulsion, there are too many conservatives trapped there, I want to target states that are even more solidly leftist, once they have been expelled CALExit will happen because the left will despair of ever regaining power, then we can allow CALExit on the condition that the conservative leaning counties be left behind as the State of California.
