Supreme Court allows Trump asylum restrictions to take effect, ending 9th Circuit injunctions | 11 Sept 2019 | In a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border by transiting through a third country. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals...handed the Trump administration a partial victory in the case on Monday, by ending the nationwide injunction. But the 9th Circuit kept the injunction alive within the territorial boundaries of the circuit -- which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington. The Supreme Court's order was not a final ruling on the merits, but it at least temporarily ends the injunctions everywhere, and allow the policy to proceed nationwide while lower courts in the 9th Circuit address the case.

[Right. Nut-job Bolton wanted the US to occupy Afghanistan, etc., *forever,* to enhance the coffers of his Deep State overlords.]

Court vacates sentence for Rand Paul's neighbor, says it was too lenient

Court vacates sentence for Rand Paul's neighbor, says it was too lenient | 09 Sept 2019 | A federal appeals court on Monday vacated a 30-day prison sentence for a neighbor of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who assaulted him in 2017, ruling it was overly lenient and ordering a resentencing. In a 16-page opinion, Judge Jane B. Stranch of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, writes that the lower court where Rene Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress had "no compelling justification" for sentencing him far below federal guidelines...The opinion offers examples of other 30-day sentences for assaulting members of Congress and notes that the damage paled in comparison to that of Boucher, who broke five of Paul's ribs and caused injuries that later required part of Paul’s lung to be removed.

9/11 mystery solved: World Trade Center building didn't collapse due to fire, study finds

9/11 mystery solved: World Trade Center building didn't collapse due to fire, study finds --One of the towers during the 9/11 terror attacks did not collapse due to a fire, a shocking study has claimed. | 08 Sept 2019 | The mystery surrounding the third [World Trade Center] tower known as Tower Seven (WTC7) has been central to many conspiracy theories because the skyscraper fell to the ground without being hit by a plane. The 47-storey third tower, located 110 meters (350 feet) away from the World Trade Centre, collapsed seven hours after the twin towers. Researchers have dismissed the findings of Government officials in 2008 that the building fell due to "uncontrolled building fires". Following an extensive four-year study at the University of Alaska, using four extremely complex computer models, Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao found the "fire did not cause the collapse"...Meanwhile, a leading conspiracy theorist has also dismissed the official's findings, Robert Korol, a civil engineering professor and joint author of the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, claims the destruction of the tower was caused by "controlled demolition".

Afghan peace talks dead 'for the time being' and US won't enter any agreement - Pompeo

Deep State wins again. Surprise, surprise! Afghan peace talks dead 'for the time being' and US won't enter any agreement - Pompeo | 08 Sept 2019 | US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that peace negotiations with Afghanistan's Taliban are dead and that Washington will not enter any future agreement without "commitments" from the militants. Appearing on a round of cable news shows Sunday morning, Pompeo told one of these, Fox News, that negotiations with the Taliban are dead "for the time being," adding that Washington is recalling its special envoy to Afghanistan to work out its next steps. Also appearing on CNN, Pompeo said that the US would not enter into any future agreement with the Taliban without "significant commitments" from the fighters, who now control more Afghan territory than at any point since the US invasion in 2001. [Wow! Looks like lots of wasted billions so the CIA could maintain its Afghan poppy fields and opium routes.]

Putin warned Bush about impending attack TWO DAYS before 9/11 - ex-CIA analyst

Putin warned Bush about impending attack TWO DAYS before 9/11 - ex-CIA analyst | 06 Sept 2019 | Russian President Vladimir Putin had called his US counterpart George W. Bush two days before the 9/11 attacks in 2001, warning about an imminent terrorist plot coming from Afghanistan, a former CIA analyst has revealed. The urgent warning coming from the Russian leader is mentioned in the book, The Russia Trap: How Our Shadow War with Russia Could Spiral into Nuclear Catastrophe, released earlier this week and written by George Beebee, a senior Bush-era CIA analyst. The revelation by the former CIA operative appears to be yet more proof that Washington has been repeatedly warned about the attacks that ultimately happened on September 11, 2001. While the existence of a warning from Moscow has been public knowledge for years -- senior Russian intelligence officials spoke about them shortly after the attacks -- Beebee's book suggests that it was not limited to exchange between the intelligence agencies, and that Bush was warned by Putin personally.
