    Article (Amendment 3 - Quartering Soldiers) No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. They don't have to be quartered on the land let alone in the owners' houses.

    This is the reason I prefer a military presence on the border instead of a wall, the land wouldn't have to be seized for the military to patrol it.

    Most of them are not on the border at a port of entry, most of them cross illegally and resort to applying for asylum when they get caught. Those that apply at a port of entry should be sent back across the border until their claim is processed since they do not yet have permission to pass the border station and remain in the US.

    There is a sour group of “Star Wars” fans who really want us to forget about Rian Johnson’s “The Last Jedi.” They dislike the film so much they’ve even gone so far as campaigning to raise money for a remake. Their (very reputable looking) website allows you to add your email address in support and even pledge a dollar amount toward the project, though no financial information is collected from visitors, so it appears purely symbolic. The people behind the site claim they have unnamed producers who will ultimately cover the film’s budget. “This is a campaign to provide Disney an opportunity to course correct with the Star Wars franchise,” the site’s mission statement reads. “The fans are completely divided and the core goal of Star Wars has been abandoned.” The group, which insists “this isn’t a joke” in a pinned tweet, has just gotten the endorsement from maybe the most unlikely source: “Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson himself. please please please please pleeeeeeeaaaase please actually happen please please please please please https://t.co/mNpSjgovax — Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) June 21, 2018

    During the testimony provided by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Rep. Jordan asked who made the decision to withhold the smoking gun ‘Stop Trump’ text message from Congressional investigators for a month. “But who made the decision? Was it Mr. Wray, was it Mr. Rosenstein, Mr. Sessions? Who made the decision?” Jordan asked Horowitz. “We sent it to the Office of Deputy Attorney General,” Horowitz said. “So, Mr. Rosenstein. Rosenstein made a decision that instead of us seeing the most explosive text message between these two key agents that were on the Clinton team, the Russia team, and on the Special Counsel team, he made a decision to wait a month for us to see that text message,” Rep Jordan said. Rep. Jordan said this isn’t the first time Rosenstein has kept information from Congress. It’s his pattern.

    Alzheimer’s disease may be triggered by the herpes virus, a new study suggests, leading to hopes that antiviral medication could help prevent dementia. Around 850,000 people are living with dementia in Britain, and the majority of people have Alzheimer’s which occurs when sticky plaques of amyloid build up in the brain, killing brain cells. But new research has found that the brains of people who have died of Alzhiemer’s have almost double the level of HHV-6A and HHV-7 herpes virus as non-diseased brains, suggesting it is playing a role in the condition. Researchers in the US believe that the disease may trigger an immune ‘cascade’ which encourages the growth of amyloid plaques. It raises hopes that cases could be prevented through antiviral drugs. How herpes in the brain could trigger Alzheimer's The team did not set out to study the impact of herpes, but were looking for anything which might be different in six key brain regions in people with Alzheimer’s compared to those who were dementia free. They began by sequencing DNA from the dead patients to find out information about inherited genes, followed by their RNA to find out how those genes were expressed.

    According to a new Rasmussen poll, a majority of Americans blame illegal immigrant parents for the child crisis on the border over the U.S. government. The media has put a hyper focus on the separation of families at the border over the last several weeks, leading President Donald Trump to sign an executive order ending the separation. Current U.S. law does not allow families to be detained together if the parents are referred for prosecution for illegal border crossing. However, the Rasmussen poll shows that Americans don’t blame the Trump administration for the approximately 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents. 54 percent of likely voters polled by Rasmussen said that they think the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. Only 35 percent said the government is more to blame for the crisis. Further, 54 percent of voting Americans agree with President Trump’s assertion that “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility — it won’t be.” The survey of 1000 likely voters was conducted on June 19-20. http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/21/rasmussen-parents-to-blame-border-crisis/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=idealmedia&utm_campaign=dailycaller.com&utm_term=68856&utm_content=1

    The Education Department has closed more than 1,200 civil rights investigations launched during the Obama administration, a ProPublica analysis found. An analysis of more than 40,000 civil rights cases found that upward of 1,200 probes started during the Obama administration and lasting at least six months were shut down by the department under Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. An Education Department spokeswoman told ProPublica that the department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is “as committed as ever” to enforcing civil rights law. She did not dispute ProPublica's analysis of the cases. “Where the evidence is insufficient for OCR to prove a violation of law, or the facts show that dismissal is appropriate on other grounds, OCR closes the case, which provides much-needed closure for both students and institutions,” the spokeswoman told the news outlet. She added that the department has “restored the role of OCR investigators as neutral fact-finders.” ProPublica noted that President Trump's Education Department has taken steps to more quickly wrap up investigations, eliminating steps required under Obama. The report also stated that while the Obama administration took on more complex civil rights probes, DeVos has scaled back those investigations. The Education Department under DeVos adopted a new provision earlier this year that allowed officials to dismiss hundreds of civil rights complaints considered onerous or unnecessary.

    At the time there was a rumor that the US was about to conduct a major attack against Syria, the turnaround showed that that wasn't going to happen, I have posted the fleets movements since because there are still rumors of an imminent attack and the fleets location is relevant.

    President Trump tweeted his own explanation for his wife’s wardrobe choice, claiming that there was, in fact, a message, and it was directed toward “the fake news media.” “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media.

    No, I said they shouldn't be allowed to make their application on US soil, we are discussing immigrants who entered the US legally or illegally. From your link: Persons interested in being considered for the US Refugee Program should contact the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). UNHCR in Rome is located at Via Caroncini 19, 00197 Rome, Telephone 06.802.121, Fax 06.8021.2324.

    Irrelevant. The policies were not in place and Trump is POTUS, doing the wrong thing in the past is not a reason to keep doing it in the present and future.

    Fierce clashes between the Saudi-led coalition’s forces and the Houthis are ongoing near the port city of al-Hudaydah in western Yemen. On June 19, the coalition’s forces once again entered the al-Hudaydah airport claiming that this time they really captured it. However, they were not able to establish full control of this important facility because of a fierce resistance from the Houthis. On June 20, clashes in the area continued. Since June 13, when the coalition kicked off its advance on al-Hudaydah, pro-Saudi sources had claimed at least 3 times that the airport is in the hands of the coalition. All these claims appeared to be false. The control of the airport is an important if the coalition wants to storm the city from the southern direction. At the same time, coalition-led fighters continued their attempt to outflank al-Hudaydah from the eastern direction, engaging the Houthis in the Matahin square area. While the square remains contested, the highway linking al-Hudaydah and the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, is already closed because of the clashes.
