    The runway still cuts across Lake Michigan's North Fox Island, faded like an old scar. The airstrip is the first thing that Francis D. Shelden built after buying his hideaway. In 1960, the millionaire outbid the state government for the island, shaped like an upside-down teardrop, that hovers 19 miles off the coast of Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula. The state offered the owner, an elderly widow, about $3,500. The Detroit Free Press reported Shelden gave her $20,000. He wanted isolation and he got it. The 3,000-foot stretch of green was where Shelden, a former Michigan Air National Guard airman, would touch down in his private plane. It's also where the young campers would arrive in the summer, before they were ushered into cottages concealed by beech and elm trees. Before, survivors say, they became stuck in a spider's web of sexual abuse and child pornography. Michigan State Police responded to Business Insider's records request on Shelden with a statement saying that "a search of Michigan's criminal history file has not located a criminal record that exactly matches the information that you have provided." But a review of Michigan State Police reports from the 1970s on the case of North Fox Island point to an operation built on manipulation, deception, and coercion. The story of the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing and trafficking minors, erupted in the news this year, and internet sleuths say the case of Shelden and Lake Michigan's North Fox Island bears an uncanny resemblance to today's scandal. Both center on allegations that secretive millionaires weaponized their philanthropic giving, cliques of connected friends, and private island paradises to prey on young victims and escape justice. Like Shelden, Epstein was a millionaire, a philanthropist, and a man with powerful friends. And neither stood trial for the crimes for which he was accused. After accusations surfaced about goings-on at North Fox Island, Shelden disappeared.

    Days after disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein apparently hanged himself in jail, agents raided his private resort in the Virgin Islands. As of Wednesday evening, they haven't checked out his sprawling Zorro Ranch in New Mexico. The ranch is the only Epstein property in the U.S. that has not yet been raided by federal agents. In the meantime, the state attorney general's office said it will turn over any evidence to the Southern District of New York, which, despite Epstein's death, is continuing the investigation into his possible co-conspirators.

    Exposing the public to fake news may lead to the creation of false memories, according to a new study published in Psychological Science. Researchers in the study asked participants to recall real-life events based upon provided news reports. Even though some of the news reports provided were fake, almost half of respondents reported remembering a fake event in real life — and “many” respondents recalled “rich details” about events that never actually happened, according to Science Daily.

    The Trump administration is weighing a policy proposal that would protect state and local jurisdictions from being forced to accept potentially dangerous third-world refugees. The administration is considering whether or not to allow state and local jurisdictions to deny refugees that have been approved for resettlement into the United States through the scandal-ridden globalist program. A draft for the initial program states that “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate.” Trump is expected to announce these changes via executive order in the upcoming days. Peter Boogaard, a federal immigration bureaucrat who worked under former President Barack Obama, believes the proposed policy would “have a dramatic impact on the ability of future administrations to return refugee admissions to the normal historic levels.” Trump has already drastically decreased the amount of refugees who are being let into the country. The number is capped at 30,000 for fiscal year 2019, down from 85,000 in fiscal year 2016. The administration wants to drive that number down further, and groups that are on the federal dole to resettle refugees are crying foul that their gravy train is drying up.

    The CEO and Chairman Qatar’s largest dairy firm, Baladna, and Doha Bank are being sued by eight Syrian citizens in Britain’s High Court of Justice for allegedly helping fund an Islamic jihadist organization and causing financial, physical and psychological damage to them. The court has reportedly granted anonymity to all eight Syrian claimants, who live in Europe, likely out of an abundance of caution for their security and well-being. According to the court filings, Moutaz Al Khayyat and Rames Al Khayyat, billionaire tycoon brothers who are the heads of Power International Holding which owns and operates Baladna, allegedly funded the al Qaeda affiliated al Nusra front – a known Syrian Jihadist organization – by passing funds through their Doha Bank into accounts located in Turkey and/or Lebanon. Wiretaps and witness testimony recently exposed Turkey’s overt support for Islamic State terrorists entering and fighting in Syria. The report by The Investigative Journal (TIJ) revealed how Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan enabled and even personally facilitated both the movement of foreign and Turkish militants across the Turkish border into Syria and armed them so could fight alongside IS jihadists against Assad. “The Khayyat brothers financed and/or assisted in financing Al-Nusra Front, including through accounts held by them and/or entities associated with them at Doha Bank,” the lawsuit alleges. “The Defendants knew (or ought to have known) that the funds passed from them and/or through their accounts were intended for the al-Nusra Front and, in any event, breached international and national laws and committed wrongful acts under Syrian law.” More at: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/billionaire-qatari-brothers-and-doha-bank-sued-by-syrian-civilians-for-funding-syrian-jihadists/

    Germany's Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, marches down the same path that doomed Angela Merkel. Please consider German FM Maas Calls for EU Migrant Redistribution Coalition. Germany should promote a "coalition of the willing" among European Union countries that are prepared to accept refugees saved in the Mediterranean Sea, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Saturday. "We must now move forward with those member states that are ready to receive refugees — all others remain invited to participate," he told the RND media group. Germany would be willing to make a substantial contribution to the alliance and accept a set share of refugees as part of a "binding" redistribution system, he added. Maas, a Social Democrat, said that disputes between EU countries about redistributing refugees "must no longer" impede an agreement on saving migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean. "This blockade must finally come to an end," he said. Maas's proposal was immediately rejected by Austria's former chancellor, Sebastian Kurz. Kurz, whose conservative People's Party is the frontrunner to win Austria's parliamentary vote in September, dubbed the common refugee policy a failure, adding that all Mediterranean migrants should be sent back to their home countries. "The distribution of migrants in Europe has failed," Kurz said on Saturday. "We are once again discussing ideas from 2015 that have long proved impractical." Puking on More Europe Hello foreign minister.

    Now, according to the Nikkei Asian Review, in the latest sign of how the relationship between the two countries has deteriorated, South Korea has decided not to extend an intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan. The decision was reportedly made at a National Security Council meeting on Thursday at South Korea's "Blue House." South Korea said it no longer believes the agreement is "in its national interest" after Japan excluded South Korea from the "so-called" "White Countries' list". Kim Yu-keun, the National Security Office's deputy director, said: "We thought that it is not in our national interest to maintain the agreement," adding that, "We will inform the Japanese government through diplomatic channels by the deadline of the extension, according to the agreement." Kim said: "The government estimated that the Japanese government caused a critical change in the circumstances of security cooperation between the two countries by excluding our country from the so-called white countries' list...with no clear evidence, on Aug. 2." For the record, that 'white countries' list? It's not what it sounds like. The timing of the pact's termination is also interesting because of North Korea resuming its short-range missile tests, as well as its threats to call off peace talks with the South and the US. Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, late last month said that Tokyo wanted to maintain the pact, known as the General Security of Military Information Agreement. The neighbors signed the agreement in 2016 out of a desire to cooperate in the face of an increasing threat from North Korea. The agreement stipulates how the countries can share military intelligence. SK's decision not to extend the pact follows a meeting between the two countries foreign ministers in Beijing, where South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha demanded that Japan rescind its decision.

    The US will sell another 10 million barrels of sour crude oil, the Department of Energy said on Wednesday in a Notice of Sale, according to S&P Global Platts. The Department of Energy will be accepting offers to purchase the crude through August 28, and delivery must be taken between October 1 and November 30. The 10-million-barrel offering is the latest in a series of SPR sales under a mandatory sales program that seeks to sale 260 million barrels through 2027, and is not part of conscious act to influence the markets. The SPR holds 645 million barrels of crude oil, 395 million of which is of the sour variety. The US has periodically sold off part of the SPR, the last of which was in March. Marathon Petroleum, Motiva, and Phillips 66 together purchased 4.32 million barrels for $285.7 million.

    “Ninety-three percent of our prisoners are male, but of those 93 percent males, more than 90 percent of them are dad-deprived males,” Warren Farrell, an American educator and a prolific author on men’s and women’s issues, said in an interview with The Epoch Times for the “American Thought Leaders” program. In his view, the lack of a father figure in the home is the single greatest predictor of what he describes as “the boy crisis”: across developed nations, boys are doing worse than girls in every academic subject, but especially in reading and writing. And more boys suffer from a lack of purpose, mental illness, and addiction to various kinds of immediate gratification. His most recent book is titled, “The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It.” “When I started doing the research for ‘The Boy Crisis,’ I found that in 56 of the largest developed countries, boys were having problems,” Farrell said. In these countries, he said, it’s more socially permissible for married couples to divorce and for unmarried women to have children. And the boys who grew up in such fatherless families tend to fare worse than their counterparts in intact families. For a variety of different reasons, they might “feel like they’ve been a loser at school, that nobody’s paying attention to them,” Farrell said. “They haven’t had their testosterone channeled well. They’re trying to get attention in one way or the other, depending on their community and their culture. “At some point, they say, I’ll get people to wish that they paid attention to me, and valued me,” he said. “Since Columbine, about 90 percent of the mass shooters are not just boys, but they’re dad-deprived boys.” And the same is true with ISIS recruiting: “More than 90 percent of the ISIS recruits are dad-deprived. Both the males and the much smaller percentage of females who are ISIS recruits are dad-deprived,” Farrell said.

    Epstein’s will says his estate should be exhausted to pay off penalties from his construction in the Virgin Islands. A lawyer says, “It is odd to say ‘to the exhaustion of all of the assets of my estate.’ To me, $500 million in penalties would be a lot, so I don’t know why he would put that in there,” attorney Michael Korsinsky told the Daily News. “One possibility is maybe he was in cahoots with people to rack up fees intentionally and use that as a mechanism to get money out of his estate. We don’t know who he was affiliated with there,” Korsinsky said.

    Some of the tweets were scrubbed but they are found at another site that copied them: There was a time, somewhere around 2010 or 2011, when I remembered a former friend, low-ranking #ArizonaMafia member Luis Borbon, had stopped by an office where I was working, on his way back to Phoenix, to discuss unrelated business. He was driving a very large white vehicle pic.twitter.com/5SvXfzDyLw — Jeffrey Peterson(@realJeffreyP) August 22, 2019 with a bunch of dogs packed in the back. At the time it seemed extremely strange, I asked him about it and he remarked that he had brought the dogs from Mexico and was dropping them off at a location near the Phoenix airport. Later that evening pic.twitter.com/aYQGZ0fQCn — Jeffrey Peterson(@realJeffreyP) August 22, 2019 We had been out with some of our political group of friends and they were laughing, joking about Luis's trip, how he had driven a bunch of dogs from Mexico up in to Phoenix and dropped them off.

    Lewis, a Republican who lost his 2018 re-election bid to represent the 2nd Congressional District, will try to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Tina Smith. In his announcement, though, he targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Democrat from Minneapolis who has been repeatedly criticized by President Donald Trump, just as much as Smith. “We are at a crossroads in Minnesota and across this country not seen since the chaos and turmoil of the 1960’s,” Lewis said in his announcement. “llhan Omar, with Senator Tina Smith marching in lockstep behind her, are leading a radical political movement that sees our Constitution and American values as dispensable relics.” He later added: “I refuse to sit back on the sidelines and watch our state, country, and way of life continue to come under blistering attack from radical politicians like Ilhan Omar and her footsoldier Tina Smith. I’m going to fight back. That’s why today I am proud to announce my candidacy for the United States Senate.” Smith was elected in a special election in 2018 to fill the remaining term of Al Franken, who resigned after several women accused him of inappropriate behavior. The seat is up for re-election in 2020. Lewis was a long-time conservative radio commentator who ran for Congress in 2016 and won. He served one term in the U.S. House of Representatives before losing in 2018 to Democrat Angie Craig. Earlier this year he told reporters that national Republican leaders had been encouraging him to run again. More at: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/jason-lewis-to-run-for-us-senate/ar-AAGbaM4

    Syrian army advances in northwest Syria are putting Turkish troops in the firing line and threaten Ankara's hopes of preventing a new wave of refugees on its southern border. The offensive around Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in Syria, has already forced tens of thousands of civilians to flee towards Turkey. It has also cut off a Turkish military post deep inside Syria as the deal to limit fighting in the region, which the Turkish troops were supposed to be monitoring, collapses. The breakdown of that deal would be a significant blow to President Tayyip Erdogan, who has steered Turkey closer to Russia in recent years but appears unable to rein back Moscow's support for the Syrian army offensive. Turkey insists it has no plans to abandon or move any of the military posts it set up in Idlib, despite Monday's air strike and the fighting around Morek. "All observation posts will continue operations where they are located right now," Kalin said, adding that agreements to halt military operations around Idlib must be respected. "Otherwise, both the violation of this agreement and the resulting humanitarian drama will be inevitable."

    Gov. Ron DeSantis has agreed to allow Florida to join a national electronic center to exchange voter registration data with other states, an effort long-sought by county supervisors of elections. DeSantis said Wednesday Florida will become the 29th state to participate in the Electronic Voter Registration Information Center, known as "ERIC," a consortium of states known that share voter registration information. DeSantis announced the move during an appearance with county election officials at the Orange County supervisor of elections office in Orlando, saying the effort will ensure the integrity of voter-registration lists. “It’s my judgment it makes the most sense, especially given the fact that we have a lot of people moving into the state,” DeSantis said. State lawmakers last year passed a measure allowing Florida to join ERIC, which aims to reduce duplicate voter registrations. The center, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit, started with seven states and assistance from the PEW Charitable Trusts in 2012. Data matches by the center can identify voters registered in two states, those who have moved between states, and those who have died, which allows county elections officials to identify and remove people who are no longer eligible to vote in the state.

    This was so predictable that you wonder why they even went through the ruse. – Attorney General William Barr announced yesterday that his intrepid FBI “investigators” have managed to find no evidence that would dispute the coroner’s finding that serial pedophile pal of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein committed “suicide” in a New York federal prison. Because of course that’s what our dumpster fire FBI found. So, a couple of prison guards and the prison warden have been “reassigned,” Barr has ousted the head of the Bureau of Prisons (sacrificial lamb) and installed another one, and the whole thing will be blamed on “incompetence” and “irregularities” in the holding of the federal government’s most high-profile witness. Which is pretty much exactly what I told you was going to happen the day after Epstein was found dead in his cell. If you are expecting actual “justice” here, you’re going to need another Justice Department, because the current one was irreparably corrupted by 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama. As a reader notes, we should expect the cremation of Epstein’s body to take place soon and receive only passing mention in some remote crevasse of the New York Times.
