    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will push for Blue and White to join a national-unity government led by him, sources close to Netanyahu said Wednesday, following a meeting of the Likud faction at Jerusalem’s Orient Hotel. The sources who participated in the closed-door meeting said Netanyahu would publicly pursue a coalition with all of Blue and White, though his private preference would be that Benny Gantz break up his Blue and White Party and join without Yesh Atid. Likud MKs said that Netanyahu asked to not discuss his tactics for building a coalition. But MKs said they have received an impression that he would agree to a rotation in the Prime Minister’s Office with Gantz, as long as Netanyahu goes first. “Prime Minister Netanyahu does not rule out any Zionist party,” Likud said in an official statement. The results of Tuesday’s race, pending the uncounted votes of IDF soldiers and diplomats, gave Blue and White 33 seats, the Likud 32, the Joint List 12, Shas nine, Yisrael Beytenu eight, United Torah Judaism eight, Yamina seven, Labor-Gesher six and the Democratic Union five. The center-right and center-left blocs both won 56 seats. President Reuven Rivlin will begin consultations regarding who he should appoint to form a government on Sunday. But he will already see both Netanyahu and Gantz at Thursday’s memorial ceremony for former president Shimon Peres.

    Overnight mass protests popped up in the streets of Cairo involving hundreds, possibly thousands, who took over a central square of the capital to demonstrate against strongman Egyptian ruler Abdel Fatah al-Sisi. Like the prior so-called 'Arab Spring' protests which rocked Egyptian streets starting in 2010 through 2011, which began the chain of tumultuous events which ended in Sisi's taking power via coup d'état toppling the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi, Friday night's spontaneous demonstrations, which also hit the port cities of Alexandria and Suez, were the result of coordinated online organizing. Abdel Moniem square in Cairo Egypt... pic.twitter.com/2DPzVbQR6p — Bessma Momani (@b_momani) September 20, 2019 Videos showed protesters angrily chanting anti-Sisi slogans demanding that he leave office, and in some cases destroying posters and images bearing his face. Demonstrations also reportedly occurred in the smaller cities and towns Damietta, Damanhour and Mahalla. Pro-government television broadcasts had dismissed the sizable demonstrations, news of which quickly went viral, as minuscule and the mayhem of small groups of youths. Other pro-government media reports said the scene around Tahrir Square, site of the first Arab Spring mass protests, was quiet; however, international correspondents cited up to "thousands" gathered there. #Egypt: Demonstration in front of the journalists union in downtown, Cairo, chanting "#Sisi Must Leave." https://t.co/mqkdxzGG1b — Mohamed Soliman (@soliman91) September 21, 2019 The protesters' message was chiefly focused on anti-corruption, according to international reports, and is an incredibly risky endeavor in Sisi's Egypt — given the de facto state of martial law that exists and police heavy handed tactics which include imprisoning journalists, and widespread reports of torture. More from Egypt tonight, because, wow. This is Mahalla which you could argue is where the Arab Spring really began, on April 6, 2008. pic.twitter.com/n5JRqZrZge

    Conservative black activist Candace Owens told a congressional panel on Friday that white supremacy has a minimal impact on the black community, and that America should instead focus on black-on-black crime and the breakdown of the family. "White supremacy is indeed real, but despite the media’s obsessive coverage of it, it represents an isolated, uncoordinated and fringe occurrence within America," Owens told lawmakers during a hearing on confronting white nationalism. "If we’re going to have a hearing on white supremacy, we are assuming that the biggest victims of that are minority Americans," she added. "And presumably this hearing would be to stop that and preserve the lives of minority Americans. Which based on the hierarchy of what’s impacting minority Americans, if I had to make a list of 100 things, white nationalism would not make the list." "We don't see hearings on those bigger issues brought up... Black-on-black crime, the breakdown of family I think is the number-one thing contributing to that," she added. "White supremacy and white nationalism is not a problem that is harming Black America." More at: https://www.zerohedge.com/political/candace-owens-white-supremacy-has-minimal-impact-black-americans

    Victims of dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein say he paid doctors and psychiatrists to dope them up with anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications, according to a new report in the Miami Herald. "There were doctors and psychiatrists and gynecologist visits. There were dentists who whitened our teeth. There was a doctor who gave me Xanax. What doctor in their right mind, who is supposed to protect their patients, gives girls and young women Xanax?" said victim Virginia Giuffre, who was recruited into Epstein's world when she was just 16-years-old. Giuffre sat down with fellow accusers Sarah Ransome and Marijke Chartouni to discuss their experiences - just three of the 60 victims uncovered by the Miami Herald's Julie Brown. Ransome - a South Africa native who successfully sued Epstein and his former partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, finds it hard to believe that high-profile people in Epstein's orbit had no idea what was going on. "I find it so funny with all these people, after Jeffrey was arrested, saying ‘we didn’t know — we didn’t see anything," she said. "Jeffrey was always surrounded by girls, always. And these weren’t normal girls. You could see it in our faces. ... We were damaged, we were medicated. How can you sit in front of a group of girls with Jeffrey and say ‘we just didn’t know it’? You had to know." According to Fort Lauderdale-based attorney Bradley Edwards who represents several of Epstein's victims, "He would find out they have no home, no car, that they need a place to live, and he would provide a place to live. He can get you to the best doctors. Sometimes he would do that and sometimes he wouldn’t do that, but the promise was real because as soon as you walk into his house and see there are legitimate cooks, chefs, and assistants, everybody catering to him — it gives this air of legitimacy. I mean, everybody in this whole entire mansion can’t possibly be running an illegal sex trafficking operation, right?"

    More than 100 people were arrested in a central Ohio child sex sting operation — including a doctor and a youth director at a church, police said. Maj. Steven Tucker of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said that among those arrested, 24 of them were men who showed up at an undisclosed location intending to meet a child for sex. “They show up with sex toys, they show up with lubrication,” Tucker said in a statement. “They show up with things that clearly somebody isn’t going to show up to a house with, unless they intended to engage in sexual activity.” WBNS reported that those 24 suspects who showed up face charges of attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and importuning. Out of the group of 104 suspects, police have identified Austin Kosier, a 31-year-old emergency room doctor, and Christian Gibson, a 26-year-old former youth director at Redeemer’s at Courtright Church in Columbus. Tucker said he was in charge of overseeing the investigation, where officers would often pose as boys or girls online to communicate with the men via the Internet. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said more than 30 law enforcement agencies participated in the sex sting operation.

    Police working in the notorious no-go Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby have decried the situation in the area, claiming criminals laugh at Swedish laws. Hanif Azizi, a member of the regional police in Rinkeby, expressed his frustration with the situation in the suburb, which has become notorious for its riots and high levels of crime, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. He told the broadcaster: “If you have worked for a long time to prosecute people and see that there are no consequences, that the criminals even laugh at us. It is frustrating.” Policing the area, which also has a high population of migrants and those with migration backgrounds, has been difficult for the local police officers in the past, with officers requiring to be driven to and from the Rinkeby police station due to safety concerns. Sweden: New ‘No Go Zone’ Police Station Rammed by Car, Attacked by Masked Arsonists https://t.co/1dVkRLNsK3 — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) August 8, 2018 Christoffer Ersenius, local union president of the police district of Rinkeby, commented on the issue in 2017, saying: “There is concern among the staff about working in a police station in Rinkeby. We understand this concern, especially when it is about how to safely travel to and from their workplace in Rinkeby.” The government had already begun construction on a new police station that year, although they had a hard time finding contractors due to safety concerns. That station was then attacked the following year when several masked men drove a car onto the site before setting the car on fire and attacking a security guard with rocks and fireworks. The attack was believed at the time to have been possibly related to a prior drug bust in the area. Then-Swedish Chief Prosecutor Lise Tamm labelled Rinkeby as being like “a war zone” in late 2017, stating: “Rinkeby is almost like a war zone. When the police work there, they work as the armed forces would have done.” U.S. Former Police Chief Expresses Shock at Swedish Gang Violence https://t.co/3oLTxY0QTH

    U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich (pictured) was a Trump-hater. She was appointed by Obama as ambassador to Ukraine in 2016. She was US ambassador to Ukraine during the 2016 election when the Ukrainian government was colluding with the DNC and Hillary Campaign to undermine the US presidential election. Starting in 2018 Yovanovich denied Ukrainian officials visas to enter the United States to hand over evidence of Obama administration misconduct to Trump administration officials.

    Congress has not prohibited bump stocks, but the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) has made them illegal with a Final Rule issued without statutory authority. In a noteworthy development, ATF’s latest court filing admits that it lacked rulemaking authority under the Gun Control Act and National Firearms Act to issue a legislative rule. ATF thus now agrees with NCLA that the district court below was wrong on this point of law.The New Civil Liberties Alliance has filed a brief on behalf of client Clark Aposhian, asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to reject ATF’s remaining defenses of the Final Rule, restore Mr. Aposhian’s constitutional rights, and grant him a preliminary injunction to possess his lawfully acquired property. Specifically, NCLA argues that ATF’s interpretation is not the best reading of the statute and that the Court of Appeals cannot properly invoke the Chevron judicial deference doctrine to defer to ATF’s interpretation.

    This article is saying that human nature causes people to turn to socialism when their wealth is siphoned off to corrupt cheating 3rd world countries and globalist corporations. This article is saying that we can have all the competition we need from countries that don't cheat at trade and from domestic competition if we reduce the size of government which we will never do if we allow trade warfare to turn the public into welfare voters. This article is saying that things devolve to the lowest common denominator if you don't protect yourself and that lowest common denominator is worldwide communism where slaves are ruled over by an aristocratic elite of globalist fat cats.

    Switzerland’s top court ruled that parents do not have a right to homeschool their children. On Monday, the Swiss Federal Court ruled against a mother from the city of Basel who in 2017 had applied for permission to school her 8-year-old son at home. School authorities rejected the application and a cantonal court threw out the mother’s appeal. When she brought her case to the Federal Court, the mother held that the appeal court’s decision was tantamount to a ban on private instruction at home, thus violating a constitutional right to privacy and family life. The high court, however, rejected the mother’s argument, ruling that the constitutional right to a private life does not also apply to homeschooling. The court noted that no international treaty grants a right to homeschooling. In addition, the Federal Court ruled that Switzerland’s cantons may decide whether to authorize homeschooling or to ban it outright. In Basel, homeschooling is allowed if applicants can show that the child’s attendance at school is impossible. The Federal Court had ruled earlier that national law does not explicitly grant a right to private instruction at home. Nevertheless, it ruled that cantons may decide how they comply with federal requirements for basic education. Cantons are semi-sovereign administrative divisions that make up the Swiss federation.

    A Delaware judge ruled on Friday that Tesla Inc's <TSLA.O> board of directors must defend at a trial Chief Executive Elon Musk's multibillion dollar pay package, which a shareholder lawsuit said unjustly enriched the head of the electric vehicle company.Tesla estimated the 2018 compensation package was worth $2.6 billion when it received stockholder approval in March 2018, although stock analysts at the time said it could be worth up to $70 billion if the company - which has yet to post an annual profit - grew quickly. The compensation award includes no salary or cash bonus for the Silicon Valley billionaire Musk, but sets rewards based on Tesla's market value rising to as much as $650 billion over the next decade. On Friday, Vice Chancellor Joseph Slights of the Delaware Court of Chancery ruled against Tesla's request to dismiss the lawsuit by shareholder Richard Tornetta at an initial phase in the litigation because of the way the board approved the package. As a result, the board must now defend against allegations that it breached its fiduciary duty in approving the package, and that the package unfairly enriches Tesla's CEO. The ruling opens the way for additional discovery into the decision-making process. Tornetta had asked that the pay package be rescinded and the board of Tesla be overhauled to better protect investors. The ruling turned on Tesla's compensation committee, which the company conceded was not independent of Musk, according to Slight's opinion. Had the package been negotiated by truly independent directors and approved by a majority of shareholders who were unaffiliated with Musk, Slights said he would have dismissed the lawsuit. "Plaintiff has well pled, however, that the board level review was not divorced from Musk's influence," Slights wrote.

    The Trump administration on Thursday booted from the United States two Cuban diplomats who were found to be running spy operations on American soil, according to the State Department. "The Department of State today notified the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the United States requires the imminent departure of two members of Cuba's Permanent Mission to the United Nations for abusing their privileges of residence," State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus announced. "This is due to their attempts to conduct influence operations against the United States." Due to these spy attempts, the Trump administration is further restricting travel for all members of Cuba's permanent U.N. mission. They now can only travel in Manhattan.
