    Federal officials arrested 3,771 sexual predators they say targeted more than 1,066 children across the country during the past fiscal year, according to data released late Thursday. The Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, section of Immigration and Customs Enforcement opened 4,224 cases into child exploitation concerns in the United States and overseas from Oct. 1, 2018, through Sept. 30. “HSI is committed to eradicating individuals from our communities who seek to prey on children,” Eben Roberts, acting special agent in charge of the HSI Seattle field office, said in a statement. “HSI’s agents, in cooperation with our law enforcement partners, work tirelessly to find and bring to justice individuals who commit these heinous crimes. Moreover, we are dedicated to rescuing from harm’s way our most precious population – our children – and those who seek to harm them should consider this a warning.” ICE is comprised of two entities: HSI and Enforcement and Removal Operations, or ERO. While ERO targets immigration-related violations, HSI is a general investigatory agency not limited to immigrants. A sample list of convicted child predators from the Pacific Northwest shows those taken in as a result of the operation had committed a variety of offenses, including torturing children and possession of child pornography. In one case last October, Ty Lee Treddenbarger of Washington state pleaded guilty to charges related to taking pictures while he molested underage boys. Treddenbarger is the former coach of a youth bowling team in South King County who drugged the boys before molesting them. In another instance, Yazmani Gomez-Sandoval of Idaho was arrested for possessing child pornography. During the investigation, Gomez-Sandoval admitted to sexually abusing four young children while he was in Mexico between 2003 and 2006.

    The illegal immigrant population is as high as 29.5 million, far more than the 11 million accepted by experts and the government, according to an explosive new report from three Yale University experts. “Our results lead us to the conclusion that the widely accepted estimate of 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the United States is too small. Our model estimates indicate that the true number is likely to be larger, with an estimated 95 percent probability interval ranging from 16.2 to 29.5 million undocumented immigrants,” said their report published by PLOS One, an academic journal. The authors from Yale School of Management, Mohammad M. Fazel-Zarandi, Jonathan S. Feinstein, Edward H. Kaplan, said the average in their new model is about 22 million, exactly twice the number accepted by the Census Bureau and other experts. “The mean estimate based on our simulation analysis is 22.1 million, essentially double the current widely accepted estimate,” they wrote.

    When she added that quote to her signature I knew she supported mandatory vaccination. It's also an attack on free speech. "If you can't win the argument slander the opposition in order to make people not listen" is what it says. It sounds like the dictator in Zorro the Gay Blade: "The woman is allowed to speak, but arrest anyone who listens" It is her attitude that is dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation, since when is any scientific question "unquestionable" and why should anyone be forced to allow the injection of themselves or their child with substances they can't verify?

    We did solve at least one nagging mystery -- Trump's crime. It's never been clear exactly what Democrats believe is the impeachable offense here. But now we know. It's this:Donald Trump: Wouldn't it actually be wonderful if we could get along with Russia? Wouldn't that be nice? If we get along with Russia, we'd go out together with others and we knock the hell out of ISIS. Wouldn't that be great? So that was August of 2016. "Wouldn't it be great if we got along with Russia?" It turns out that voters agreed with that view. They elected Donald Trump president just three months after he said that. But permanent Washington was appalled -- scandalized, really. Getting along with Russia isn't simply considered an alternative view here. It's a crime. Listen to State Department veteran George Kent, one of the witnesses who testified Wednesday, explain that conflict with Russia is the entire point of American foreign policy. George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for Europe: The United States has a very clear national interest at stake in Ukraine. Ukraine's success is very much in our national interest in the way we have defined our national interest broadly in Europe for the past 75 years. Our strategic game for the entirety of my foreign service career is not possible without a Ukraine whole, free and at peace, including Crimea and the Donbass territories currently occupied by Russia. OK, you need to get a pen. This is getting complex, but it's important. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine is essential to America's national interest." Now, our own borders mean nothing, of course -- defending them is racist, and it's immoral. Everyone in Washington knows that and they'll remind you of it, if you think otherwise.

    Anyone over 30 might give a fuck, but so many are so distracted and lazy to learn anything about how to defend their privacy on a technical level they have just given up. Younger people seem to be the exact opposite, yet, just as ignorant. The younguns think they understand technology because they can tap an icon on a fucking screen. Most seem to be hopelessly brainwashed to think Privacy Bad Orange Man Bad Socialism Naziism Good. They think privacy is only a thing that gets in their way of communicating with "their friends" who wouldnt bother to piss on them if they were on fire, all the while Google watches every single fucking thing a person does, and compiles a list of "who is Googlag's REAL Enemies" and how to take them out. Google, with its data on individuals, essentially acts as judge jury and executioner of anyone who does not repeat the propaganda they spew forth.

    The apprehension of migrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry by Border Patrol agents dropped by 73 percent during the past five months. The numbers fell by nearly 100,000 from the peak in May where nearly 133,000 to just over 35,000 in October. The apprehension of migrants who illegally crossed the border fell from 132,856 in May to 35,444 in October, according to the Southwest Broder Migration Report released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Thursday. This represents a decrease of 73 percent in five months. More at: https://www.breitbart.com/border/2019/11/14/border-apprehensions-drop-73-percent-in-five-months/

    Morales was the one engaged in a coup: Former Bolivian President Evo Morales ran for a fourth term in office in the October 20 election after forcing the nation’s constitutional court to find that he had a “human right” to run despite constitutional term limits. This weekend, the Organization of American States (OAS) published their preliminary findings from a probe of that election that amassed significant evidence of election fraud. Morales responded to the report by voluntarily resigning, fleeing to Mexico, then declaring that he was the victim of a “coup.” More at: https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/11/14/bolivia-police-arrest-cubans-caught-paying-socialist-rioters/

    Hundreds of asylum-seekers who have staged a sit-in protest outside the UN refugee agency in Pretoria for five weeks on Thursday barged into the premises, the agency said. They erected tents and spread their belongings around the carpark. The UNHCR said around 150 foreign nationals "have forced their way into the compound this morning" and that its staff were "safely evacuated out of the building". "The protesters say they are seeking protection and want UNHCR to relocate them to a safer country," the agency said a statement. The foreigners have staged the protest since October 8, sleeping under camping tents on pavements in front of the refugee agency and the Turkish embassy next door. On Wednesday the Pretoria High Court issued an order giving the protesters three days to vacate, but they decided to move into the UNHCR premises. Residents from Brooklyn suburb sought the eviction complaining that the protesters' occupation of sidewalks was illegal and caused nuisance. It ordered the protesters to not erect shelters, defecate, urinate or undress on the street. Using a loudhailer, the Court's sheriff on Thursday read out the order to them.

    The House began public hearings this week, furthering the partisan move by the Democrats to impeach President Trump in a blatant abuse of constitutional authority. Representative Adam Schiff said in a press conference, “These open hearings will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves and also to learn firsthand about the facts of the president’s misconduct.” There are several problems with this statement. First, Schiff is already characterizing the outcome of the investigation. As the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he serves as a key arbiter of the inquiry under the resolution. As such, he is in a position that demands an unbiased irreproachable ethic in evaluating requests for subpoenas and testimony. Any judge in a similar position would be required to recuse himself with even a hint of the pure bias Schiff has displayed, including coordination with the Ukraine whistleblower and other actions. The Democrats do not even pretend that their impeachment game is fair or actually about fact finding. This is simply about using a grant of power in the Constitution arbitrarily and politically, outside the bounds of due process and the purpose of that authority. Although the House does have the “sole power” of impeachment, that is a grant of jurisdiction, not a license to proceed on purely partisan motivation. Article One must work coordinately and not inconsistently with Article Two, which provides the legal basis upon which a sitting president may be impeached. Second, Schiff demonstrates this is all about media play in the court of public opinion. Voters have no power or responsibility in an impeachment proceeding. The drafters of the Constitution intended the impeachment and removal process to be exercised only when there was sufficient evidence that the subject of the impeachment had committed a legally qualifying offense. This is not about whether impeachment is popular in the polls or whether a majority of Americans prefer it. Transparency in the context of this quasi judicial process is to provide fundamental fairness and due process for the president. Why are the Democrats so hellbent on blatantly refusing to allow Republican subpoenas and witnesses? It is because it is a sham. Yet the Democrats are openly admitting that their goal is to try this in the media and attempt to dishonestly convince us that somehow we too should hate Donald Trump. They are hoping to convince us not to vote for him. That is not a legitimate or constitutional purpose of an impeachment. It is rather ironic that they claim his “crime” is an alleged quid pro quo to gain political advantage, while they are manipulating the power of impeachment for their political advantage. It is Schiff and other Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who should be impeached. There is an actual constitutional basis for that. Third, Schiff is proving beyond doubt that this entire impeachment is merely a coordinated partisan attack against President Trump and, even more importantly, against the government of the United States. There was a bipartisan effort was against impeachment, with two Democrats and all Republicans in the House voting against the inquiry. The Democrats are abusing the power of impeachment and, if they are allowed to move forward, they are not only setting a terrible precedent that impeachment can be wielded as a political weapon that it was never intended to be, but also attacking the Constitution and undermining the rule of law.

    Speculative loans in China are souring rapidly. Ruzhou, a city of one million people provides examples. Struggling to keep its economy growing, the city of Ruzhou spent big, but is now asking its health care workers for cash to stay afloat. Great piece. The problem isn't incompetent officials: the problem is unrealistically high GDP growth targets that clearly cannot be met except by borrowing and overbuilding (and, of course, capitalizing investment losses that should be expensed).https://t.co/cWAJ8ANqsG — Michael Pettis (@michaelxpettis) November 11, 2019 Begging Nurses for Money The New York Times asks How Bad Is China’s Debt? Ruzhou, a city of one million people in central China, urgently needed a new hospital, their bosses said. To pay for it, the administrators were asking health care workers for loans. If employees didn’t have the money, they were pointed to banks where they could borrow it and then turn it over to the hospital. Ruzhou is a city with a borrowing problem — and an emblem of the trillions of dollars in debt threatening the Chinese economy. Local governments borrowed for years to create jobs and keep factories humming. Now China’s economy is slowing to its weakest pace in nearly three decades, but Beijing has kept the lending spigots tight to quell its debt problems. Increasingly these deals are going sour, as they did in Ruzhou, and the loans are going unpaid. Lenders have accused three of Ruzhou’s hospitals and three investment funds tied to the city of not paying back their debts.

    Yesterday, shortly before China's data deluge, we reported that a Beijing-based think tank became the first Chinese economic research institute linked to the government to predict that China’s economic growth rate will slow below 6.0% next year. Specifically, The National Institution for Finance and Development (NIFD) on Wednesday said that China’s economic growth rate will slow to 5.8% in 2020 from an estimated 6.1% this year, a number which is already quite ambitious, not to say artificially goalseeked. “The economic slowdown is already a trend,” said former central bank adviser Li Yang, who heads the institute that is affiliated to the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). “We must resort to deepened supply-side structural reform to change it or smooth the slowdown, rather than solely rely on monetary or fiscal stimulus.” The problem is that even a sub-6% number is wildly optimistic and misrepresents the true state of China's economy considering that back in August, Fathom Consulting calculated that growth in the second largest economy had already shrunk to 4.6% and was declining. Of course, shortly thereafter China released its latest retail sales, fixed investment and industrial production data, all of which missed badly and worse, the data showed the weakest retail sales growth since 2003 and weakest Fixed-Asset Investment growth since 1998.

    It's a sketch of a suspect described by a witness, liar. And it seems that it could have been either one of the two. The Smiths saw the man at around 22:00 on Rua da Escola Primária, 500 yards (460 m) from the McCanns' apartment, walking away from the Ocean Club and toward Rua 25 de Abril and the beach. He was carrying a girl aged 3–4 years. She had blonde hair and pale skin, was wearing light-coloured pyjamas, and had bare feet. The man was mid-30s, 5 ft 7 in–5 ft 9 in (1.75–1.80 m), slim-to-normal build, with short brown hair, wearing cream or beige trousers. He did not look like a tourist, according to the Smiths, and had seemed uncomfortable carrying the child. E-fits based on the Smiths testimony were first created in 2008 by Oakley International, private investigators hired by the McCanns, and were publicized in 2013 by Scotland Yard on Crimewatch.
