Dead woman billed on 100th birthday by Hollywood Hills nursing home [that killed her]

Dead woman billed on 100th birthday by Hollywood Hills nursing home [that killed her] | 19 Oct 2017 | Even though Albertina Vega is dead and the sweltering nursing home where she died is shut down, the facility still billed her on what would have been her 100th birthday. Vega, 99, was one of 14 deceased residents of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills where the central air conditioning failed during Hurricane Irma. Carmen Fernandez, the wife of Vega's cousin, said she went to the bank to close Vega's account only to learn there was no money in it. Instead, there was an automatic payment of $958 to Hollywood Hills that resulted in an overdraft fee. The shock of it was magnified by the fact that the payment was posted on Oct. 10, the day Vega would have become a centenarian had she not perished in the stifling nursing home..."I was enraged. They let her die and then they bill her," she said.

Facespook: Social media giant becomes arm of US intel

Facespook: Social media giant becomes arm of US intel | 18 Oct 2017 | Facebook [FaCIAbook, as CLG has always known], the world's top social media platform, is reportedly seeking to hire hundreds of employees with US national security clearance licenses. Purportedly with the aim of weeding out planting "fake news" and "foreign meddling" "globalists' meddling" in elections. If that plan, reported by Bloomberg, sounds sinister, that's because it is. For what it means is that people who share the same worldview as US intelligence agencies, the agencies who formulate classified information, will have a direct bearing on what millions of consumers on Facebook are permitted to access...Under the preposterous guise of "protecting" from "fake news" and "foreign meddling in elections," Facebook is turning into a government censor.

US consulting firm with ties to the Clintons lobbied on behalf of Russia's nuclear giant

US consulting firm with ties to the Clintons lobbied on behalf of Russia's nuclear giant | 19 Oct 2017 | A Russian company, whose former executive was the target of an FBI investigation and who admitted to corrupt payments to influence the awarding of contracts with the Russian state-owned nuclear energy corporation, paid millions of dollars in consulting fees to an American firm in 2010 and 2011 to lobby the U.S. regulatory agencies and assist the Russians, who would go on to acquire twenty percent of American uranium, according to court documents, a former FBI informant and extensive interviews with law enforcement sources. Roughly $3 million in payments from 2010 to 2011 were made to APCO Worldwide Inc. The firm also provided in kind pro-bono services to Bill Clinton's foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, services they begin 2007, according to APCO officials who spoke with Circa and press releases from the company. In 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was part of the Obama administration board that would eventually approve the sale of U.S. uranium supply to a Russian company.

Senate narrowly passes 2018 budget, paving way for tax reform

Senate narrowly passes 2018 budget, paving way for tax reform | 19 Oct 2017 | Senate Republicans took the first step Thursday evening toward passing a tax plan and fulfilling a long-held campaign pledge. Senators narrowly voted 51-49 to pass the fiscal year 2018 budget after a grueling hours-long marathon on the Senate floor. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) joined with every Democrat to vote against the bill. The spending blueprint is key to Republicans' efforts to pass tax reform because it includes instructions that will allow the plan to avoid a Democratic filibuster.

This Is The New Normal: UC Santa Cruz Liberals Declare Mainstream Republicans Nazis And A Threat To Their Safety For Simply Existing

A meeting of the College Republicans at the University of California, Santa Cruz was taken over and subsequently shut down by hard-left students who literally screamed that the groups very existence was a threat to their safety.
The leftist group initially organized the effort to derail the free speech of Republicans on campus in a Facebook post that openly called for shutting down the groups “right of assembly” while also labeling mainline conservatives as white supremacists and fascists.
“White Supremacist, fascist-sympathizing College Republicans are having a meeting at McHenry library, room 0332. Everybody be aware of this violent racist activity happening everyday on this campus!” wrote a student. “We need a movement of people on this campus that rejects the ‘right of assembly,’ or ‘right of free speech’ for white supremacists and fascists.”
The group then went through with their social media threats, banging on the meetings door and eventually barging into the room to full on disrupt the peaceful meeting while screaming about fascists, racists, and white supremacists. Remember, this was a meeting of mainline conservatives.
Details published by Campus Reform include the fact that the leftist group refused to have any sort of dialogue with the College Republicans.
According to the UCSC College Republicans, their offers to discuss the concerns of the protesters were met with exclamations that “dialogue is violence,” after which the protesters called the club’s presence a “threat to the library” and demanded that the CR members vacate the space immediately.
The protesters even reportedly berated library staff members when they refused to shut down the pre-approved meeting. One staff member eventually asked the CR members to leave in order to end the disturbance, but meeting attendees chose to respond by sitting quietly and refusing to leave the area.
One student protester laughably ran out of the meeting hysterically screaming about nonexistent “Nazis downstairs”.
The commotion culminated in one of the student activists running out into the main library area screaming that there were “Nazis downstairs,” but while the gimmick drew several spectators, many of them expressed indignation at the actions of the protestors.  
“As a Democrat, I am embarrassed that some people on the left act this way,” remarked Phil Leonard Vogel, creator of the moderate campus news publication City on a Phil. “They give all of us a terrible name.”
After nearly two hours, school officials eventually called the police, who reportedly arrested three of the protesters.
Unbelievably, one of the protesters even claimed that the groups very existence was a disturbance. You truly can’t make this stuff up.
“Your existence is a disturbance, your existence is a disturbance to every marginalized person in this country.”
This is apparently what it means to be a liberal (at least for some) in the year 2017.

Senior UK Jewish Leader Criticizes British UN Diplomat Over Balfour Declaration Comments to UN Security Council

The top organization representing British Jews has lodged a complaint with the British government over remarks by the UK’s Deputy Ambassador to the UN suggesting that the absence of a Palestinian state represents the “unfinished business” arising from the 1917 Balfour Declaration.
In a speech to a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East on Tuesday, Deputy Ambassador Jonathan Allen underlined that the “UK is proud to have played a role in helping to make a Jewish homeland a reality” when it issued the declaration in November 1917. But Allen drew the ire of British Jewish leaders when he added, “let us remember, there are two halves of Balfour, the second half of which has not been fulfilled.”
“There is therefore unfinished business,” Allen said, a remark he repeated in a later tweet.

Let us remember, there are 2 halves of #Balfour, 2nd of which has not been fulfilled. There is unfinished business. @AmbassadorAllen #Israel pic.twitter.com/BoAXOcsKdz

In a letter to Britain’s senior diplomat at the UN, Ambassador Matthew Rycroft, Jonathan Arkush  – president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews –  invoked Prime Minister Theresa May when he asserted that it is “completely inconsistent with the United Kingdom’s declared policy to mark, commemorate and celebrate the Balfour Declaration (all terms used by the Prime Minister and other ministers in recent weeks).”
“In just a fortnight’s time a commemorative dinner is to take place to be attended by the Prime Minister  and Prime Minister Netanyahu,” Arkush said. “It is deeply unattractive for the UK’s Mission to the UN to strike a critical note and exposes the UK Government to a charge of hypocrisy.”

The then British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour issued the “Declaration” in the form of a letter to Jewish leader Lord Rothschild in November 1917, in which he confirmed that Britain, the mandatory power in Palestine, viewed “with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” The declaration added that the British government would “use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
With the centenary of the Balfour Declaration approaching next month, the current British government has continued to resist Palestinian entreaties to apologize for having issued it in the first place. A statement from the British foreign office in April said that the Balfour Declaration “is an historic statement for which Her Majesty’s Government does not intend to apologize.”
“We are proud of our role in creating the State of Israel,” the statement continued. “The task now is to encourage moves towards peace.”
In his letter to Rycroft, Arkush argued out that from a historical perspective, “the Balfour Declaration was no more or no less than a British Government expression of sympathy.  It came 30 years before the UN vote to establish a Jewish homeland.”
“If an Arab or Palestinian homeland was not established, that cannot be the fault of Israel, which did not exist, but would be a criticism of either the international community, or more fairly the Arab community who repeatedly rejected the notion of establishing their own country,” he continued.

In his speech to the UN Security Council, Ambassador Allen went on to say that Britain’s supported a peace settlement based upon a “safe and secure Israel living alongside a viable and sovereign Palestinian state, based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, Jerusalem as the shared capital of both states, and a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for refugees.”
