Out-of-Control Federal Judge Reverses Trump’s DACA Decision

A federal judge in California late Tuesday night temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Known as DACA for short, it protects young immigrants from deportation. In September, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the program would be phased out.

President Obama implemented the program in 2012, and it has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the United States as children by their families, some of whom overstayed their visas. Under the program, these young adults referred to as “Dreamers” have been permitted to live and work legally in the U.S.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco granted a request by California and other states to keep DACA going, at least until lawsuits can play out in court. (Read more from Federal Judge Reverses Another Trump Decision HERE)

What’s the Cause of Increasing Male Infertility? It’s Not Just Soy…

Taking ibuprofen could change a man’s testicular function, including decreasing the production of testosterone, according to a study conducted by Danish and French researchers.

The researchers recruited 31 healthy white men ages 18 to 35 ― the prime age for military personnel ― to participate in the study. Fourteen of them received 600 milligrams of ibuprofen twice a day for six weeks; the rest were given a placebo.

The dosage is on the high end of the recommended dosage per day, and the subjects were given the ibuprofen for a period longer than normal for over-the-counter Ibuprofen. . .

In this study, the researchers found that the use of ibuprofen resulted in a clinical condition called “compensated hypogonadism,” which is prevalent among elderly men and is associated with reproductive and physical disorders. The researchers found that the ibuprofen suppresses the endocrine system, affecting certain testicular cells, including testosterone production. (Read more about male infertility causes in US HERE)

Bundy Case Dismissed in Staggering Blow to Federal Government

By WND. In a blistering rebuke to the federal government, a judge dismissed all charges against rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and militia member Ryan Payne stemming from an armed standoff with federal agents in 2014.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro issued a scathing analysis of the government’s conduct, terming it “outrageous.”

“There has been flagrant misconduct, substantial prejudice and no lesser remedy is sufficient,” she said.

The charges were dismissed “with prejudice,” which means the federal government will not be able to retry the men.

The same judge declared a mistrial in the case late last month, citing prosecutorial misconduct. (Read more from “Bundy Case Dismissed in Staggering Blow to Federal Government” HERE)

Cliven Bundy Emerges Defiant After Nevada Case Against Him and His Sons Tossed

By Ken Ritter. The Nevada rancher accused of leading an armed standoff that stopped federal agents from rounding up his cattle in 2014 walked out of a courthouse in Las Vegas a free and defiant man Monday, declaring that his fight against U.S. authority is not over.

Cliven Bundy emerged to supporters’ cheers, while environmental and conservation advocates worried that the dismissal of his charges would bolster “violent and racist anti-government” followers who aim to erode established parks, wildlife refuges and other public lands controlled by U.S. officials.

“We’re not done with this,” the 71-year-old Bundy declared in his first minutes of freedom since his arrest in February 2016. (Read more from “Cliven Bundy Emerges Defiant After Nevada Case Against Him and His Sons Tossed” HERE)

After Golden Globes Speech, James Woods Shares 3 Photos From Oprah’s Past

After Oprah Winfrey’s highly publicized speech at the Golden Globes sparked speculation of a presidential run, actor James Woods tweeted three pictures of her with disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Winfrey, who starred in The Weinstein Company film “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” in 2013, is shown hanging on his shoulder in one picture posted by Woods.

In another, she appears to be showering affection on Weinstein.

Finally, in a third photo, Winfrey offers what looks to be a reassuring hand to Rita Ora, as Weinstein reaches over to touch the young singer.

As reported by The Western Journal, British actress Kadian Noble said that Weinstein used Winfrey and actress Naomi Campbell to fool her into believing he would further her acting career.

Noble had met Weinstein in 2014 at a British Academy Film Awards after-party.

There, Weinstein allegedly introduced Noble to Winfrey and Campbell, before telling Noble that he had an interest in her acting ability.

Noble claimed to have been impressed by Weinstein after she witnessed Winfrey “swinging off his arm.”

The actress recounted that instead of helping her career he only wanted to have sex with her.

Woods also took NBC to task for tweeting a picture of Winfrey from the Golden Globes with the caption, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” The Daily Wire reported.

NBC later took the tweet down explaining a “third party agency” posted the picture for the NBC Entertainment Network, and it was in reference to a joke host Seth Meyers told in his opening monologue.

Woods quipped in response, “But assure our followers we will still work behind the scenes to enable the #DNC agenda as always.”

CNN reported Monday that Winfrey is “actively thinking” about running for president in 2020.

One unnamed source said the conversations about a run for office goes back several months, but Winfrey has not made a decision.

Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, who attended the Golden Globes with her on Sunday, told the Los Angeles Times afterwards that a presidential bid is “up to the people.”

“She would absolutely do it,” he added.

Earlier in the evening, Meyers fed into the speculation with a joke at the Globes.

“Oprah,” Meyers said, looking out at her in the audience, “in 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner — jokes about how he was unqualified to be president — and some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!”

Asked about a potential Winfrey run, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said President Trump would “welcome all comers,” according to The Washington Times.

Gidley stated, “We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else.” (For more from the author of “After Golden Globes Speech, James Woods Shares 3 Photos From Oprah’s Past Oprah’s Past” please click HERE)

Years After Retiring, Secret Service Agent Reveals How Clinton Sex Trysts Endangered Lives

In a new book released to the public this week, retired Secret Service agent Gary Byrne has revealed how former President Bill Clinton’s endless appetite for sex put the lives of those assigned to protect him in danger.

Byrne, who protected Clinton during his time in the Secret Service’s Uniform Division, claimed that Clinton often wanted a small motorcade to follow him around as he made trips that were “off the record,” or OTR, according to the Washington Examiner.

Often, these trips were made “for highly honorable reasons,” like when Clinton went to meet with the grieving widow of a high-ranking military official who had died.

“But the freedom of OTRs under this president was soon to be abused,” Byrne continued, before noting that in one case, an off-the-record trip “nearly cost an officer his life.”

“President Clinton used the OTRs to visit the well-known and lesser-known mistresses he frequented outside the complex, meaning the ones who did not have access to the White House,” he wrote.

The incident to which he was referring allegedly took place when the then-president was traveling to see one of these mistresses.

The driver of one of the cars in the motorcade, identified by Byrne as “Reverend,” was attempting to keep up with the convoy of cars, leading to him running through a red light and getting hit by a car coming through the intersection.

“Due to the haphazard, improvised, and extremely dangerous way the motorcade was operating, the tail car was T-boned by a civilian car correctly crossing the intersection at a green light,” Byrne said.

“It wasn’t that Reverend’s car just missed the red light. But many of the cars in front of him had missed the light as well, and he had simply followed through.”

For the civilian, the light had been green for some time, and the car had picked up speed “from a significant distance away.”

In the resulting crash, “Reverend was severely injured, as were another officer and two civilians,” according to Byrne.

Though the convoy did not stop, local police were alerted, which is how they eventually found out about the secret motorcades.

“Reverend,” meanwhile, had to be taken to the hospital “with a severe traumatic brain injury.”

Following the incident, Byrne claims the Secret Service attempted to stop “Reverend” from getting payments. It was only after he threatened to reveal the details of what had happened in court that the agency finally relented.

But the incident had caused many of those assigned to protect Clinton to question whether they were risking their lives for something — or someone — worthwhile.

“Word of what had happened to Reverend spread like wildfire through the Uniformed Division because any UD officer could have been in Reverend’s place,” Byrne wrote.

“And although many would take a bullet for the president, what was the risk for? Were Clinton’s sordid personal affairs worth an officer’s life? Was that the duty we had signed up for, the reason we spent so much time away from our families?”

This is not the first time that Byrne has gone public with claims about the Clintons.

In his 2016, book, titled “Crisis of Character,” the former agent “reveals what he observed of Hillary Clinton’s character and the culture inside the White House while protecting the First Family,” according to the book’s Amazon description.

Playboy Reporter Gets BURNED by Sarah Sanders

At Thursday’s White House press briefing, Playboy reporter and CNN contributor Brian Karem got his hat handed to him when he began a question with this: “I profess my ignorance in this ….”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly jumped in with a sharp-witted reply that received audible gasps and laughter from the other members of the White House press corps. “You said it not me,” she said. “I mean, if you want to call yourself ignorant, I’m not going to argue.”

This wasn’t Karem’s first run-in with Sanders. Last month, I reported on the time he crossed the line by asking Sanders at the podium if she’d ever been sexually harassed.

Pot Is Dangerous, Not Funny — a Doctor Tells Us Why

As a physician, my doctoring knowledge tells me that making marijuana legally available is a bad idea, except perhaps for certain medical conditions. Marijuana is a potent mind-altering drug that can cause serious harm, as I explain below. It will be just one more substance we have to warn our children to stay away from . . .

The growing acceptance of legalized pot is an alarming trend. It has quickly spread in the past few years and today seven states and Washington, D.C., allow recreational marijuana. A total of 29 states and the District of Columbia allow some form of medical marijuana.

Too often, marijuana is treated as a harmless substance – something to joke and giggle about, and something that we see the people we admire on TV, in movies and elsewhere enjoying as a break from the workaday world. The message? Treat yourself to an ice cream cone, a piece of cake, a beer or some pot. It’s OK to enjoy yourself . . .

What is especially concerning is the fact that the marijuana of today is not the same as it was back in the 1960s or 1970s. Over the past few decades, the concentration of THC in the cannabis plant has been increasing, making it more potent than ever . . .

What causes the “high” people experience is marijuana’s effect on over-activating parts of the brain containing specific brain cell receptors. This leads to feelings of an altered sense of time, other altered senses, changes in mood, impaired body movement, impaired memory and difficulty in thinking and problem-solving.

The 3rd Most Popular Boy’s Name in US State Is Unusual

St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, Minnesota, came out with its annual list of top 10 most popular baby names for 2017, and No. 3 on the list of boys’ names was a bit of a surprise.

No. 1 – Henry
No. 2 – Liam
No. 3 – Mohamed
No. 4 – Jack
No. 5 – Nolan
No. 6 – William
No. 7 – Jackson
No. 8 – Logan
No. 9 – Wyatt
No. 10 – Grayson

The hospital has been publicizing its top baby names for boys and girls for as long as anyone can remember, but this is the first time the namesake of the Islamic prophet ended up in the top five.

In fact, as recently as 2013 the hospital published a list of its “Top 20” most popular baby names, and Mohamed was nowhere to be found . . .

The vast majority of Muslims in Minnesota are refugees from Somalia, and the Somalis have large families. Just since 2002, the U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has distributed more than 54,000 Somali refugees into Minnesota cities and towns.

Violent Crime Is Surging in Germany – Their Solution Will Leave You Speechless

Refugees are causing a major problem in Germany; the situation is getting so bad that mainstream media outlets can no longer ignore it. Now a new report shows that migrants are almost solely responsible for the country’s rise in violent crime . . .

The most insane part of the German government’s report was the solution that they offered to fix the problem. According to Reuters:

The study said reuniting refugees with their families by allowing them to come to Germany too could help to reduce violence. Such reunions look set to be a particularly contentious issue in talks about a new coalition government.

. . .

It is not difficult to understand why women avoid these young male migrants as Germany had to install rape-free zones for the most recent New Year’s Eve celebrations after a series of horrifying sexual attacks by migrants occurred a couple of years ago. Documents that were leaked in 2016 showed that “approximately 2,000 men, many of whom were newly-arrived migrants from the Middle East and North Africa, sexually assaulted more than 1,200 women during the celebrations in several German cities.” (Read more from “Violent Crime Is Surging in Germany – Their Solution Will Leave You Speechless” HERE)

Legal Marijuana Expansion Across the US Is About to Hit a Big Speed Bump

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended an Obama-era policy that led to the expansion of legalized marijuana across the U.S., The Associated Press reported.

The new stance will replace the “lenient-federal-enforcement policy” passed by then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole with federal prosecutors able to decide how strongly they want to enforce the federal law prohibiting legal marijuana.

“In deciding which marijuana activities to prosecute under these laws with the Department’s finite resources, prosecutors should follow the well-established principles that govern all federal prosecutors,” Sessions’ one-page memo read.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado quickly voiced his opposition to the policy change on Twitter.

In 2013, Barack Obama’s administration said that it would not get in the way of states that wanted to legalize marijuana as long as the drug was kept out of the hands of criminals and minors.

Now that the policy has been rescinded, federal law enforcement officials can interfere with marijuana sales in states where it is legal.

Political reporter Brandon Rittiman had asked President Donald Trump in 2016 about his view on marijuana, to which he responded that “it should be up to the states.”

Trump’s attorney general, on the other hand, has compared marijuana to heroin and blamed it for violence, the AP reported.

Sessions had met with with anti-marijuana advocates last month including president and CEO of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, Kevin Sabet.

“There is no more safe haven with regard to the federal government and marijuana, but it’s also the beginning of the story and not the end,” Sabet said. “This is a victory. It’s going to dry up a lot of the institutional investment that has gone toward marijuana in the last five years.”

The new policy will likely cause confusion in states where the drug is legal for recreational use, right after shops opened in California at the start of the year, as well as states where marijuana is legal for medical purposes.

Vice president of the Colorado Drug Investigators Association Jim Gerhardt told KATV the dangers of legalized marijuana in 2016.

“A week ago we had a 14-year-old shot and killed when he jumped into the backyard of a man’s house trying to take marijuana out of the backyard,” Gerhardt said.

Marijuana advocates voiced their opposition of Sessions’ policy change, and the executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance asserted that the attorney general “wants to maintain a system that has led to tremendous injustice … and that has wasted federal resources on a huge scale,” the AP reported.

“If Sessions thinks that makes sense in terms of prosecutorial priorities, he is in a very bizarre ideological state, or a deeply problematic one,” Maria McFarland Sanchez-Moreno said.
