Wall Street Red Flag: A Bond Market Indicator That Has Predicted Every Recession In The Last 50 Years Just Got Triggered

0
Originally Published on This Site

If the bond market is correct, the U.S. economy is definitely heading into a recession.  Over the past 50 years, there have been six previous occasions when the yield on three-month Treasury bonds has risen above the yield on ten-year Treasury bonds, and in each of those instances a recession has followed.  Now it has happened again, and this comes at a time when a whole host of other economic indicators are screaming that a recession is coming.  Of course we have seen recession indicators triggered at other times in recent years, and the Federal Reserve was able to intervene and successfully extend this cycle on multiple occasions.  But now that the global economy is clearly the weakest it has been since the last recession, have we finally reached a breaking point?

Many on Wall Street are taking what happened at the end of last week extremely seriously.  According to CNBC, we have not seen a yield curve inversion of this nature in 3,009 trading days…

Short-term government fixed income yields are now ahead of the longer part of the curve, delivering a strong recession indication that hasn’t happened since 2007.

The spread, or yield curve, between the 3-month and 10-year Treasury notes just broke the longest streak ever of being above 10 basis points, or 0.1 percentage point. The two maturities were last below that level in September 2007, a run of 3,009 trading days, according to Bespoke Investment Group.

3,009 trading days is a very, very long time.

And now we will see how inverted the curve becomes, because as Zero Hedge has aptly pointed out, the more inverted the curve become the “higher the odds of a recession”…

Why is the inversion of the 3 Month-10 Year curve – the first since 2007 – such a momentous occasion? Because not only is said inversion the most accurate recession leading indicator, having correctly “predicted” the last 6 recessions with no false positives, most recently inverting in 1989, in 2000 and in 2006, with recessions prompting starting in 1990, 2001 and 2008….

… it also feeds directly into every Wall Street recession model: the more inverted it is, the higher the odds of a recession.

To get an idea of what the models are currently showing, just check out this chart.  At this moment, the odds of another recession are the highest they have been since the last one.

Many investors were hoping that the bond market would have better news for us on Monday, but instead things got even worse

On Friday, markets were spooked when the yield curve inverted, a reliable recession signal though usually not an immediate one. That means the rate on a lower duration instrument rose above a longer duration security’s yield. In this case, it was the yield on the 3-month bill, at 2.44 percent Monday, moving above the 10-year yield, which sank as low as 2.38 percent, a more than 2-year low.

I know that just about everybody in America is writing about the Mueller Report right now, and I just posted an article about it too, but the outcome of that investigation is not going to change the trajectory of the global economy.  It has been slowing down for quite some time, and that is the primary reason why we have seen an inversion of the yield curve

“Yield curves are responding to what they see, to what I believe is a global economic slowdown,” said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group. “You don’t see this kind of move in curves, not just here but everywhere, unless you get one.”

Global central banks are already jumping into action, and I expect a tremendous amount of intervention as global economic conditions continue to deteriorate.

But there is only so much that they can do, and even though they have pulled a few rabbits out of the hat in recent years, at some point they are going to completely lose control.

Already, we are starting to see things happen that are very reminiscent of the last recession.  For example, we are on pace for the worst year for store closings in all of U.S. history, and another major retailer just announced that they will be closing all their stores

LifeWay Christian Resources announced Wednesday that it will be closing all remaining 170 stores this year and focusing on online sales. Carol Pipes, director of corporate communications for LifeWay, posted the announcement on the company’s website, explaining that it was “a strategic shift of resources to a dynamic digital strategy.”

Communities all over America, especially the more economically-depressed ones, are going to start looking really bleak as the number of empty buildings continues to rise.  This is something that I have warned about for a long time, and now it is happening on a massive scale.

As I end this article, I once again want to mention a factor that is going to have an enormous impact on our economy throughout the rest of this year.  The flooding in the middle portion of the nation has destroyed thousands of farms, and the National Weather Service is warning that the flooding that we have seen so far is just “a preview of what we expect throughout the rest of the spring”.  This is already the worst flooding disaster for U.S. farmers in modern American history, and it is going to get much, much worse.

We are going to see another huge surge in farm bankruptcies, thousands of farmers will not be able to plant crops at all this year, food prices are going to rise dramatically, and a lot of families all over America are going to have a real problem making their food budgets stretch far enough.

There are so many factors hammering our economy right now.  If the Federal Reserve is able to pull another rabbit out of the hat this time, it will be nothing short of a major miracle.

We are literally at a critical tipping point, and it is not going to be easy to pull us back from the brink this time.

‘Angelically-Guided Energy Healing’ Leader Claims Planet Overpopulated, ‘It’s Not Okay for Women to Have Babies’

OCALA, Fla. — A bizarre video that was posted to YouTube last year but is currently making the rounds on social media features two New Age women stating that the earth is already too populated, and that women should “cut off the baby factories” such as by obtaining an abortion as “we don’t need any more humans.”

The video is of mother-daughter duo Lynn and Jamie McGonagill, who are behind the “Lightworkers Healing Method” and “The Angelic Initiative,” which seeks to reach into the “deeper denser dimensions” in their “search for truth” about life and one’s “soul plans.”

“The Lightworkers Healing Method is a system of angelically-guided energy healing and a powerful spiritual growth vehicle with the exceptional goal of aligning us with our own soul’s life purpose,” it states on the organization’s website. “It improves the present by working with higher-dimension guides, angels, and lightbeings, as well as both our past and future lives, in a unique and powerful process.”

The McGonagills are often seen in their videos reaching up into the air as if trying to sense something. According to an explanation on YouTube, the women believe that they are working with their “intuitive channels.”

“Because gravity is real, intuitive channels fall down when we don’t hold them up. We are repeatedly lifting up our intuitive channels so they get out of the soup of confusion, fear, and untruth that is rampant in human society. We do this so we can hear God,” the

On Monday, senior Republicans issued calls for Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who colluded with Russians to get nude photos of Trump, to resign over false statements and claims he made regarding the now-debunked Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy.

Schiff, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Monday, “owes the American public an apology,” Politico reported.

“Schiff has met the standard that he has imposed on other members of Congress of when they should step back from their positions. He has exceeded that standard, and there is no question he should step down from the Intel chairmanship,” he added.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway also called for Schiff to resign on Monday for his continuing insistence that Trump would soon “be impeached or indicted.”

San Antonio City Council Discriminates Against Chick-fil-A for Christian Beliefs With 6-4 Vote to Ban From Airport

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The city council of San Antonio, Texas has voted to exclude the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at the San Antonio International Airport, stating that “we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

According to reports, on Thursday, the city council voted 6-4 to approve a “Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement” with Paradies Lagardère to utilize 10,000 square feet in restaurant and concession space at the airport, with the stipulation that Chick-fil-A be removed as a vendor.

Local television station KTSA reports that the seven-year agreement includes eateries such as Smoke Shack and Boss Bagels and Coffee, and initially would have come with a Chick-fil-A, but officials did not want the fast food restaurant as part of the package as they view the chicken chain as having a history of opposing homosexuality.

“With this decision, the city council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion. San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior,” Councilman Robert Trevino said in a statement posted to the City of San Antonio website.

“Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport,” he said. “I look forward to the announcement of a suitable replacement by Paradies.”

Romania and Honduras Announce They Are Moving Their Embassies in Israel to Jerusalem

Romanian and Honduran officials announced on Sunday that they would be moving their Israeli embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

According to The Times of Israel, Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă announced at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference that she – taking cues from the United States – would be moving the Romanian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. 

As Dăncilă stood on stage at the AIPAC conference she noted the longevity of the relationship between Israel and Romania saying, “Last year, Romania celebrated 70 years of uninterrupted diplomatic relations with the State of Israel.” 

“This is an undeniable historical and diplomatic fact,” she added.

Dăncilă also emphasized Romania’s commitment to protecting “the continued peace dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians” as well as her commitment – as the president of the council of the European Union – to forge closer relationships between Israel and the rest of the EU.

 Dăncilă then announced the big move, saying that like Donald Trump moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, so would she. 

The Prime Minister said, “As we all know, President Donald Trump opened the Embassy of the United States in Jerusalem. This admirable and brave step impressed me, my government and the Romanian people.”

She continued, “Moving the American embassy is emblematic and it proves the powerful connection of values and interests between the American people and the Israeli people.”

U.K. Denies Asylum to Iranian Christian, Says Christianity Isn’t a ‘Peaceful’ Religion

The United Kingdom has denied asylum to an Iranian Christian convert, saying that Christianity isn’t a “peaceful” religion.

According to The Washington Examiner, the U.K.’s Home Office, which oversees immigration and passports, rejected a man’s application for asylum, saying the applicant’s claim that Christianity is “peaceful” is “inconsistent” with the Bible.

The Home Office said in its denial letter that books of the Bible such as Leviticus, Exodus, Matthew and Revelation are “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence.”

“These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful’ religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge,” the letter says.

A legal expert told The Examiner that its likely that this decision is more anti-asylum than anti-Christian.

“The Home Office is notorious for coming up with any reason they can to refuse asylum and this looks like a particularly creative example, but not necessarily a systemic outbreak of anti-Christian sentiment in the department,” legal expert Conor James said.

In an opinion column for The Examiner, Becket Adams said there seems to be a “trend in the U.K. of government officials taking explicitly anti-Christian positions.”

Adams pointed to an investigation in Britain where police are looking into a Roman Catholic reporter who allegedly “misgendered” a transgendered person.

Chick-fil-A Banned from Airport for Its ‘Legacy of Anti-LGBTQ Behavior’

Last week, the San Antonio City Council agreed 6-4 to exclude Chick-fil-A from the airport’s food and retail contract. 

“San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior,” said District 1 City Councilman Robert Treviño according to the Washington Times

Chick-fil-A had not heard about the motion until after the contract’s approval. “We agree with [councilmember Treviño] that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A,” the company said in a statement to Fox News. “We have a fundamental code of conduct at Chick-fil-A: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We would still welcome the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council and plan to reach out to them.” 

Ted Cruz fired back at the council member with a Tweet that called the motion “ridiculous”, according to the Houston Chronicle. “San Antonio City Council voted to ban @ChickfilA from the airport bc the company gave to…the Fellowship of Christian Athletes & the Salvation Army?!?” the tweet continued.

It’s ‘a Form of Cheating’: Christian High School Leaves Athletic Conference over Pro-Transgender Policy

A Christian high school in Maryland exited its athletic conference in December after the league began allowing transgender students to compete according to their gender identity and not solely their biological sex.

Grace Brethren Christian School, an independent school in Prince George’s County, already had plans on leaving the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference (PVAC) this spring due to the long travel involved in driving to games.

But when the conference changed the policy on transgender students, Grace Brethren chose to bump its exit up to December, The Washington Post reported.  

“[Schools] that allow boys to play on girls’ teams is a form of cheating [and] it gives them an advantage over girls teams who only play female athletes,” George Hornickel, the school’s director, wrote in an email.

The conference, Hornickel wrote, “began to allow male athletes, identifying as females” to play last year without the required two-thirds vote, according to The Post. 

The Potomac Valley Athletic Conference, though, is standing by the policy. The conference is comprised of independent schools. 

“Our league is committed to honoring everyone’s identity, and that is very important to us,” conference president Taisto Saloma, who also is the athletic director at Washington Waldorf School, told The Post. “It’s something we’ve, in this year in particular, spent a lot of time talking about: How can we make sure we are doing that in a space that is changing and

A preschool director in Kentucky helped calm her students during a tornado by leading them in “Jesus Loves Me” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”

The twister ripped the roof off the building, but everyone survived. 

Michelle Rushing, the director of Mt. Zion Baptist Day Care in McCracken County, told the West Kentucky Star that after she learned of a tornado warning on March 14 at 9:10 a.m., she immediately moved her 40 students to a safer area. 

She could hear the tornado destroying the church’s building. She led the children in songs like “Jesus Loves Me” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,” according to the West Kentucky Star.

McCracken County Sheriff Matt Carter credited God for the preschoolers’ survival.

“The almighty hand of God has provided safety to our community,” Carter told the West Kentucky Star. “The destruction path is approximately five miles long. There are approximately three homes that are devastated but no injuries, and also there is approximately a half dozen other homes that have sustained minor to moderate damage. 

“This could have been an extremely high fatality rate,” Carter added, “and we’re very fortunate and blessed to only report one minor injury.”

Christian Leaders Warn About Dangers of Yoga, Commend Practice of Meditation

A recent study showed that the number of Americans practicing yoga and mindfulness meditation grew at a steady pace over the last few years.

The study, released by the National Center for Health Statistics, found the percentage of Americans practicing yoga grew from 9.5% in 2012 to 14.3% in 2017. In addition, while only 4.1% of Americans practiced meditation in 2012, the number in 2017 stood at 14.2%.

Many Christians view yoga as nothing more than a way to get into good shape, but some Christian leaders have warned that yoga has spiritual roots Christians cannot ignore. Last fall, Pastor James Lindell of James River Church in Ozark, MO set off a firestorm by telling Christians that they are opening themselves to demonic power through yoga.

According to CBN News, he told his congregation, “Every single body position has a meaning.” Then he added, “Let me say this, yoga positions were not designed by your local fitness instructor. They were designed and they were created with demonic intent to open you up to demonic power. Because Hinduism is demonic.”

In a 2015 episode of “Ask Pastor John,” pastor and theologian John Piper warned that the roots of yoga are radically different than the roots of Christianity. He said that it is “profoundly in those roots antithetical to a Christian understanding of God and the way he works in the world.” He concluded, “as I assess maximizing

Trump Was Not Involved in Russian Interference, Mueller Report Says

Robert Mueller submitted his Special Counsel report this weekend which found that President Trump did not conspire or coordinate with Russians who interfered in the 2016 Presidential election.

According to the Associated Press, after two years of investigating President Trump, attorney and former FBI director Robert S. Mueller found that neither President Trump nor anyone related to his campaign participated in the interference by Russia in the 2016 Presidential election. The report has yet to be released to the public, but United States Attorney General William Barr released a letter on Sunday in which he summarized the report.

According to Barr’s statement, the investigation “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” 

The report, however, did not clear President Trump of accusations of obstructing the Mueller investigation. According to Barr’s letter, the Special Counsel report laid out evidence of obstruction “on both sides of the question” and left “unresolved what the Special Counsel views as ‘difficult issues’ of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction”

The letter continued noting that “The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion – one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction.”

Del Toro was also fatally wounded.

Shock Claim: Clinton Team Hatched ‘Blame Russia’ Plan Within 24 Hours Of Loss – Resulted In 675 Day Mueller Investigation

0
Originally Published on This Site

The narrative that eventually spawned the Mueller investigation was concocted in a gloomy room littered with discarded Shake Shack containers in November 2016.  Even though Hillary Clinton had delivered a concession speech the day before, Clinton and her team were not ready to give up yet, and so they needed a strategy to de-legitimize the election results.  They eventually decided on a plan to “blame Russia” for Hillary’s loss, and that included really pushing a narrative that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians to defeat Clinton.  As this plan was rolled out, this narrative was eagerly embraced by pro-Clinton members of federal law enforcement agencies, and it ultimately resulted in the 675 day Mueller investigation.  Robert Mueller issued nearly 2,800 subpoenas and conducted 500 witness interviews, and in the end he found that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians…

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote in the report, according to Barr’s letter, which he sent to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees.

Barr also said that the special counsel, which consisted of 19 lawyers, found no evidence “that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate” conspired or “knowingly coordinated” with Russian efforts to use social media platforms to spread disinformation during the 2016 campaign. Nor did Trump associates conspire with Russians in the efforts to hack Democrats’ emails and disseminate them online.

Of course there wasn’t any collusion, because it was just a made up story by the Clinton campaign team that snowballed out of control.

Needless to say, President Trump is absolutely thrilled by the outcome of the investigation, and now he is calling on law enforcement to “look at the other side”

“It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it’s a shame that your president had to go through this for – before I even got elected, it began. And it began illegally. And hopefully somebody is gonna look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed, and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani went even further.  He called for “a full and complete investigation” to figure out where the charges that sparked the Mueller investigation originally came from in the first place…

“There has to be a full and complete investigation, with at least as much enthusiasm as this one, to figure out where did this charge emanate, who started it, who paid for it.”

But we don’t need an investigation to figure this out.

In a book entitled “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign”, two Clinton insiders revealed that the “blame Russia” narrative was invented during a post-election campaign meeting that had been called by John Podesta and Robby Mook

That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

Obviously they were looking for a way to steal the election from Trump, but that didn’t work.

But the mainstream media and federal law enforcement officials that were sympathetic to Clinton latched on to this narrative really hard, and it ultimately sparked the 675 day Mueller investigation.

This investigation has been an albatross around the neck of the Trump administration from the very beginning, and things probably could have gone very differently over the past two years if the focus had not constantly been on Robert Mueller.

And the damage that has been done to our relationship with Russia will probably never be repaired.  Sadly, it will be a gift that will keep on giving for a long time to come.

Fortunately, some members of Congress are now calling on the operatives that initiated these charges against Trump to be held accountable.  For example, check out what U.S. Representative Devin Nunes is saying

“This is the unravelling of the biggest political scandal in American history…remember, this dates back to late 2015, early 2016 & this began as nothing more/nothing less than a Clinton/Obama operation with a bunch of dirty cops at the FBI & career DOJ officials.” –@DevinNunes

And it is being reported that Nunes is actually ready to make “criminal referrals to AG Barr”

BREAKING:Rep. Devin Nunes says House Intel has evidence Clinton operatives & hi-level FBI & DOJ officials started Trump-Russia investigation in “late 2015/early 2016” & that House GOP will be making criminal referrals to AG Barr for officials who “perpetuated this hoax” for 3+ yrs

It will be extremely interesting to see where all of this goes.

Meanwhile, all over the nation those on the left that had been pinning their hopes on the Mueller investigation are now melting down in unison.  I really like how Susan Duclos made this point in her most recent article

The media meltdown stems from just one thing…. they helped create a narrative on behalf of Democrats after President Trump won the 2016 presidential election. They hammered that narrative, without proof, letting pundits, including a number of former Obama intelligence officials-turned-television talking heads, push conspiracy theories and outright libelous and slanderous allegations against the president, his family and associates, and then they began to believe their own narrative. When Mueller then ended his operation without indicting anyone close to the President for any type of collusion, they were caught flatfooted, and the meltdowns began.

And here is just a sampling of some of the quotes that we are getting from top Democrats…

Maxine Waters: “This is not the end of anything!”

Beto O’Rourke: “It is beyond a shadow of doubt that, once in office, the president of the United States sought to obstruct justice”

Kamala Harris: “I know and will know and do know how to prosecute the case against Donald Trump”

Chris Matthews: “How can they let Trump off the hook?”

In the end, I don’t expect the Democrats to give up.  There are desperate to get rid of Trump, and so they will inevitably start pushing new angles.

But at least the Mueller investigation is now mercifully over, and for that we should all be thankful.

Judicial Watch Issues Statement on Mueller Report: ‘Long nightmare over, Trump vindicated’

Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the “principal conclusions” (read the full text here) of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s completed Russia probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Capitol Hill lawmakers, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump’s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election — “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”

After the report was released, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement.

“The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.

We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis upon which to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice.

Let’s be clear, neither Mueller, the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, nor the Deep State ever had a good-faith basis to pursue President Trump on Russia collusion. Russia collusion wasn’t just a hoax, it

NY Police Arrest Man Who Kicked Elderly Woman in Face While Bystanders Recorded With Phones

NEW YORK — A man who attacked an elderly woman on a New York subway earlier this month by kicking her in the face has been identified and arrested by police.

“The subject wanted for the brutal subway attack of an elderly woman is in custody,” Dermot F. Shea, the chief of detectives for the New York Police Department, announced on Saturday. “The victim was treated & released from the hospital & is getting the care, advocacy & support needed.”

According to reports, shortly after 3 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, Marc Gomez, 36, began kicking the woman who was sitting alone on the No. 2 train, and struck her repeatedly in the face and upper body with his foot. The 78-year-old tried to block the blows with her hands.

Bystanders did nothing to stop Gomez, but instead seemingly took delight in watching the attack, exclaiming “Oooh!” and recording with their phones.

Gomez then walked off the subway car seconds later and stated to those recording, “WorldStar that, my n****r,” referring to the hip hop website that uploads videos of violent attacks or fights.

The New York Times reports that the woman was met by EMS personnel upon reaching the next station and was treated for cuts to the face and swelling.

Video footage of the incident was soon posted online and the New York Police Department sought tips from the public regarding the identity of the assailant.

While appearing on Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of the Union” with guest host Dana Bash, Jerrold Nadler, Google’s bought-and-paid-for congressman from New York, dismissed the finding of no collusion in AG Barr’s summary of the Mueller report and told Bash he not only knows there was collusion in the 2016 election, but that he intends to keep the anti-Trump witch-hunt alive.

“We know there was collusion,” he said, according to a report at the Daily Caller.  “Why there’s been no indictments, we don’t know.”

Perhaps that’s because there’s no reason to hand indictments down.  But we digress.

After two years of at-times intense salivating by the Left over visions of Donald Trump being frog-walked out of the White House in handcuffs, Mueller’s advice that no more more indictments will be forthcoming was a particularly bitter pill for MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who barked:

How can the president be pointed to as leading collusion with Russia, aiding a Russian conspiracy to interfere with our elections if none of his henchman, none of his children, none of his associates have been indicted?… If none of them were indicted, how can he be blamed?

Matthews wasn’t alone in his outrage. NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian was on hand to console him and viewers by suggesting Mueller could still end up accusing the president of “impeachable offenses.”

It was a witch hunt!

Attorney General William Barr reported to Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation did not find any evidence that the President or anyone in his campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election. In fact, the letter says definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump’s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia — “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”

As far as obstruction of Justice, Mueller said he didn’t reach a conclusion. He said he wanted the DOJ to decide.  Barr said “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” He added that statement had nothing to do with the DOJ policy against indicting a sitting president.

Maryland Senate Committee Advances Bill Allowing Physician-Assisted Suicide for Terminally Ill

Originally Published on This Site

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee voted on Friday to advance a bill that allows terminally ill patients to request a lethal prescription to hasten their death.

Senate Bill 311, also known as the End of Life Options Act, had been presented this legislative season by Sen. Will Smith, D-Silver Spring, and has 18 co-sponsors—all Democratic.

The legislation would permit residents who are have been diagnosed with an “irreversible” medical condition that “within a reasonable degree of medical certainty” will result in death within six months to request a life-ending drug to bring their health battle to a close.

The individual would be required to make two oral requests, at least 15 days apart, and issue a written request signed by two witnesses. One of the witnesses may be related to the patient, but may not be “entitled to any benefit” upon their death.

The patient may also choose not to inform their family at all of their decision to utilize physician-assisted suicide, as the sample text includes the option “I have decided not to inform my family of my decision.”

“I understand the full import of this request and I expect to die if and when I take the medication to be prescribed,” the written request also states. “I further understand that although most deaths occur within 3 hours, my death may take longer, and my physician has counseled me about this possibility.”

On Saturday, fake Hispanic Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said that despite the Mueller report, he believes that Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election “beyond the shadow of a doubt,” CNN reported.

“You have a president, who, in my opinion, beyond the shadow of a doubt, sought to — however ham-handedly — collude with the Russian government — a foreign power — to undermine and influence our elections,” he stated during a campaign stop in Charleston, South Carolina with no evidence whatsoever.

“If you are wondering about collusion then when you saw the President of the United States standing next to leader of Russia on that stage in Helsinki, Finland, defending him and taking his word for it against our own intelligence community in our country, in George Will’s words not mine, that is collusion in action. Ultimately, I believe this will be decided at the ballot box in 2020 by you, by me, by all of us in this country,” he added.

As Democrats and other liberals scream for more gun control and “assault weapon bans” in the wake of the New Zealand shooting, let’s look at why America won’t be following suit.

New Zealand does not have a Second Amendment. They did have legal licensed gun owners, whom as of March 21 at 3 p.m. will now be required to hand their guns over to police or face stiff penalties. The banned guns are listed as:

a semi-automatic firearm that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine (other than one designed to hold 0.22-inch or less rimfire cartridges) that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges: a semi-automatic firearm that is a shotgun and that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges.

The question is: how many legal gun owners will actually turn in their weapons? Criminals won’t turn in theirs. Depending on the media reporting, as of March 21, only 37 guns were turned in out of 1.2 million registered weapons. Will all the New Zealand farmers turn in their weapons that they used to control

Most of her tweets, however, are defensive and usually take aim at her detractors. Such were the three related tweets she posted on Wednesday, slamming Fox News Channel hosts for using a shortened form of her last name. This is actually a common practice in journalism and is done with people whose names are (1) so familiar that their pictures appear on the cover of “Time” or (2) a mouthful to say: Ocasio-Cortez is six syllables and becomes cumbersome to repeat, which is why publications on both sides of the ideological spectrum have developed the habit of using her initials.

CARSON CITY, Nev. — In a vote of 3-2 along party lines, a Senate committee in Nevada has approved a bill that would legalize physician-assisted suicide in the state, sending the legislation now on to the full Senate for consideration.

Senate Bill 165, filed by Sen. David Parks, D-Las Vegas, would allow terminally ill patients to request a lethal prescription from their doctor in order to hasten their death.

“A person who suffers from a terminal condition should have the right to determine whether to fight for his or her life using all reasonable care until life’s end, to enroll in hospice care, to seek palliative care, to ingest a drug to end his or her life or to take any combination of those actions,” an introduction to the bill outlines.

“Patients with terminal conditions who have suffered prolonged and unbearable pain as well as the loss of physical control at the end of their lives deserve the right to a peaceful and dignified death,” it asserts.

The legislation defines a terminal illness as “an incurable and irreversible condition that cannot be cured or modified by any known current medical therapy or treatment and which will, in the opinion of the attending physician, result in death within 6 months.”

Adults ages 18 and up who have been diagnosed with a terminal condition and who wish to end the battle against their disease would be required to issue two verbal requests to their doctor at

Following the press conference, Acosta took to his network to complain that “a reporter with The Daily Caller right at the very end” had been called on, then criticized said reporter for asking what he considers to be a softball question.

Freedom From Religion Foundation Wants Circuit Attorney to Remove Bible Verse From Courthouse Wall

Originally Published on This Site

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has sent a letter to the circuit attorney of St. Louis, Missouri to request that a plaque displayed outside of her office at the Carnahan Courthouse be removed as it contains a quote from Deuteronomy 16:20.

According to reports, a local resident alerted FFRF to the plaque, which is affixed to the wall under Kimberly Gardner’s name and the circuit attorney seal. The sign reads in large lettering, “‘Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue …’ – Deut. 16:20.”

FFRF contends that the use of Scripture constitutes an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion.

“We write to request that this sign be removed, both because it represents a government endorsement of religion in violation of the First Amendment, and because it advocates a form of ‘justice’ that is incompatible with constitutional principles,” the letter, sent on Monday, reads.

“The Establishment Clause prohibits government sponsorship of religious messages,” it states. “Federal courts have upheld restrictions on religious displays on government property because such restrictions exist to avoid Establishment Clause violations.”

The correspondence also argues that the “form of justice” that the Scripture represents—namely biblical justice—is “incompatible” with the U.S. Constitution.

“Deuteronomy lays out … God’s laws in exhausting detail, and it is the strict adherence to these laws that this verse refers to as justice,” it notes. “This [Scripture] is immediately followed by a warning not to worship the goddess Asherah or else risk invoking Yahweh’s wrath.”

“The most important [thing] that we want the presidential election to settle [is] the question of legitimacy—who is entitled carry on the office of the president,” Wallison asserts. 

Well, he argues, the Electoral College makes this decision clear especially when no candidate has won a popular majority. 

Wallison uses the example of the 1992 election which landed Bill Clinton in the White House. Wallison notes that while Clinton won the Electoral College, he was nowhere close to winning a majority of the popular vote. In fact, Clinton won a plurality of the popular vote, only receiving 43 percent of the popular vote with 19 percent going to a third-party candidate. When Clinton won the Electoral College, it made it clear that he had legitimacy over the presidency.

Why not have a system that allows the candidate with a plurality of the popular votes win, you may ask. Wallison tackles that too. 

“If we abandoned the Electoral College, and adopted a system in which a person could win the presidency with only a plurality of the popular votes we would be swamped with candidates. Every group with an ideological or major policy interest would field a candidate, hoping that their candidate would win a plurality and become the

It seems that newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has yet to understand that a big part of her job as a Member of Congress is to meet with and deal with her constituents.  On Thursday, the New York Post reported that the recently-dubbed “pompous little twit” has yet to open an office in the Bronx and advised constituents to follow her on Twitter.

Seriously.

According to the Post:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday tried to explain her lack of office hours by saying she’s still taking “baby steps” — but said constituents who can’t work with her sporadic schedule should follow her on Twitter.

Almost three months after her inauguration, the freshman congresswoman only recently opened a Queens office and still doesn’t have one in the Bronx.

Instead, on Thursday, she appeared at the Westchester Square Library for just two hours during the workday, where she met with 17 locals.

“Right now we’re just taking these baby steps and adapting according to community feedback,” the 29-year-old told The Post when asked why her brief availability was in the middle of the day.

“Baby steps?”  Where was

Physician-Assisted Suicide Bill Again Introduced in Connecticut

HARTFORD, Conn. — For the fourth time, lawmakers in Connecticut have introduced a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to request a lethal prescription to hasten their death.

House Bill 5898, presented by Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, D-Westport, is currently before the Assembly Public Health Committee.

The bill would allow those who have a terminal illness, defined as those who are in “the final stage of an incurable and irreversible medical condition that an attending physician anticipates, within reasonable medical judgment, will produce a patient’s death within six months,” to advise their doctor that they wish to obtain the life-ending drug.

“A patient who is an adult, is competent, is a resident of this state, has been determined by such patient’s attending physician to have a terminal illness, and has voluntarily expressed his or her wish to receive aid in dying, may request aid in dying by making two written requests to such patient’s attending physician,” the legislation reads in part.

The patient must provide the written requests no sooner than 15 days apart, and those serving as a witness to the submission may not be a blood relative, an heir, or an employee of the health care facility that is providing treatment.

The individual may choose not to advise their family at all that they have opted for physician-assisted suicide, as the sample text provided in the bill includes the option, “I have decided not to inform my family of my decision.”

The attending physician would be required to

Moms Are Influencing Children for Christ. Dads? Not So Much, Survey Finds

Christians are far more likely to say their mothers had a bigger influence on their faith than did their fathers, according to a new Barna study that examines the roles that moms and dads play in the development of children.

The study found that 68 percent of U.S. Christians who grew up with someone who influenced their faith say their mother’s faith impacted them. That was followed by the father (46 percent) and a grandparent (37 percent).  

That pattern also was found among Christian teens, who are more likely to say they have prayed with or talked about God with their mom in the past month than with their father. 

The research was conducted in 2018 and is part of a new book, Households of Faith.  

“We are incredibly good as churches at supporting, empowering and encouraging motherhood, and encouraging mothers to take that active role in their children’s faith lives,” Barna’s Roxanne Stone said last month when the research was unveiled. “It seems that we’re falling behind on how we are supporting and empowering fathers to really become a part of the spiritual guidance, as well as the emotional guidance for their children.”

Christian teens are more likely to say their mother: “encourages me to go to church,” “talks with me about God’s forgiveness” and “teaches me about the Bible,” the research shows. Christian teens also are more likely to go to their
