Federal judge blocks California law to force disclosure of Trump's tax returns | 19 Sept 2019 | A federal judge ordered a temporary injunction Thursday against California's first-in-the-nation law requiring candidates to disclose their tax returns for a spot on the presidential primary ballot, an early victory for President Trump but a decision that will undoubtedly be appealed by state officials. U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. said he would issue a final ruling by the end of the month but took the unusual step of issuing the tentative order from the bench. He said there would be "irreparable harm without temporary relief" for Trump and other candidates from the law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in July.

According to the complaint, which was filed Tuesday in Virginia federal court, Snowden's work for the CIA and NSA required secrecy agreements. The DOJ argues that he violated his "non-disclosure obligations to the United States" by not handing over the book for review before it was published.

'Israel at historic juncture:' Netanyahu refuses to concede as Gantz claims 'mission accomplished' | 18 Sept 2019 | Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to fight on even as exit polls showed him tied or lagging behind his main opposition rival, with a slim chance of assembling the coalition needed for a fifth term. "We won't have and can't have a government dependent on anti-Zionist Arab parties," Netanyahu proclaimed as the crowd of his supporters booed and chanted 'we don't want unity.' The embattled PM stopped short of claiming a victory - or conceding his defeat - saying instead "we are waiting for the real results. One thing is clear: Israel is at a historic juncture."

A false flag to drag the US into another war in the Middle East, at the behest of the Deep State.]

Swing-state voters oppose 'surprise' medical bill legislation, Trump pollster warns | 17 Sept 2019 | President Trump's campaign pollster is warning that swing-state voters oppose a bipartisan bill meant to protect patients from "surprise" medical bills they receive when going out of network for emergency care, according to a polling memo obtained exclusively by The Hill.

"Swing state voters see Surprise Medical Billing as a major problem and siding with Insurers who look to sidestep paying these bills is crossways with overwhelming voter sentiment," Fabrizio wrote in the polling memo.

NYT updates Kavanaugh 'bombshell' to note accuser doesn't recall alleged assault | 16 Sept 2019 | The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -- hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh. The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim, Harmon Joyce, said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode.

Big Brother Cometh: Massive License Plate Database Exceeds 150 Million

Big Brother Cometh: Massive License Plate Database Exceeds 150 Million | 16 Sept 2019 | Our worst fears about automatic license plate readers (ALPR) are much worse than we could have imagined.

Last month, Rekor Systems announced that they had launched the Rekor Public Safety Network (RPSN) which gives law enforcement real-time access to license plates. "Any state or local law enforcement agency participating in the RPSN will be able to access real-time data from any part of the network at no cost...With thousands of automatic license plate reading cameras currently in service that capture approximately 150 million plate reads per month, the network is expected to be live by the first quarter of 2020."

Trump, for his part, suggested Sunday that Kavanaugh should sue for defamation. The Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connected nonprofit CEO Max Stier, [allgedly] saw Mr. Kavanaugh [engage in lewd behavior].

DOJ watchdog submits draft report on alleged FISA abuses to Barr | 12 Sept 2019 |The Justice Department's inspector general told lawmakers Friday his team is nearly finished with its long-awaited review of alleged surveillance abuses by the DOJ and FBI during the Russia investigation, saying they have submitted a draft to Attorney General Bill Barr and are "finalizing' the report ahead of its public release.

BBC tells schoolchildren there are 'over 100' genders

BBC tells schoolchildren there are 'over 100' genders | 13 Sept 2019 | The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) tells primary schoolchildren that there are over 100 genders as part of its "Teach" video series, which has some concerned parents and observers up in arms.

"We know that we have got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now." ...Telegraph columnist Celia Walden has written a scathing review of the program, which she calls "noxious nonsense" that poisons children's minds, a product of the modern "Emperor's New Clothes gender diversity narrative."

White House Is Considering Surveillance Plan That Wouldn't Stop Mass Shootings

White House Is Considering Surveillance Plan That Wouldn't Stop Mass Shootings | 11 Sept 2019 | The White House is considering controversial pre-crime measures to study whether mass shootings could be prevented by surveilling mentally ill people for small behavior patterns that might predict violence. The former chairman of NBC Bob Wright, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, has informed top officials...on a new proposal to build a new research arm called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA) to find unconventional ways to address health problems, similar to what the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) does for the military, based on accounts from several people who have been briefed. Advisers to Wright put forward a three-page proposal -- called SAFEHOME for Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes -- which suggests the use of technology i.e. phones and smartwatches to detect when mentally ill people are about to commit violent acts.
