[Babylon Bee] WASHINGTON, D.C.‐A turkey recently pardoned by President Trump was found dead after claiming to have dirt on the Clintons, sources at the FBI confirmed Monday.
The official cause of death was suicide, though the bullet wounds were in the back of the turkey's head and the bird lacked opposable thumbs with which to operate a firearm.
The turkey had been publicly pardoned for the crime of being delicious and set free by Trump in a popular White House Thanksgiving tradition. Shortly after being released, the turkey confirmed its possession of "credible" information that would lead to the indictment of Hillary Clinton, posting on the bird's social media account that it was a good thing Trump had pardoned the turkey, so the world could find the truth out about the Clintons.
Metro police discovered the turkey's body the next morning, shot twice in the back of the head and stabbed in the back. There was a nearby handwritten note confirming that the death was "not fowl play."
[American Thinker] China has been winning an economic war with America for decades. Unfair currency maneuvers, tariffs, stealing of technology/intellectual property, and tariff-like burdens have been China’s war machine against America for a long time. Such economic victories over America have enabled them to build-up their military might through their unfair accumulation of wealth.
Europe has taken advantage of America’s generosity in funding too much of NATO expenses, too much of UN expenses, and our military nuclear power stick against Russia. Enough is enough! France’s own people finally are recognizing the folly of socialism’s focus of economic power on the elite political leadership.
Europe disrespects and won’t fully support our bold hardline against Iran’s overt hatred of America and Western values. They also cheat about backing sanctions against N. Korea. They try to hide behind some vague anti- nationalist "globalist patriotism", which is really at its core, their economic advantage-seeking. European political leaders seem blind with denial about Iranian religious fascism, Chinese communist economic aggression, and the social political and economic dangers involved with immigration as an economic threat to Western Democracies.
The so called "Caravan" from Central America is in essence a left-wing liberal, neo-Marxist, and neo-socialist economic political invading army. Socialist "Caravan" organizers hide behind naïve, innocent asylum-seekers, and women and children, in a way analogous to Saddam Hussein’s use of innocent civilians as human shields before his fall from power in Iraq. Duped migrant political foot-soldiers carry flags of their countries like an invading collective economic army. They stir empathy among good-hearted Americans, but throw rocks, punches, insults and break the law when they don’t get their way. It is highly suspicious as to who supports them economically. Demonstrably, gangs, human traffickers, political operatives, terrorists, and criminals hide among innocent, naïve, or complicit migrants.
Wake up America! Especially liberal Democrat politicians. Currently, World War III involves Marxist, fascist, socialist ideologies versus Western political capitalist ideologies and values. Communist China uses bad economic acquisitive trade deals, not bullets, missiles, and overt military action, yet! The Central American economic migrant army is yet another form of economic warfare unless America and other Western democracies implement effective immigration policies that ensure national sovereignty.
[Independent] Extreme heatwaves will scorch the UK as rising sea levels swallow large expanses of the coastline within just a few decades, experts have warned.
In the first major analysis of the nation’s changing climate for nearly a decade, government and Met Office scientists concluded that summer temperatures could shoot up by 5.4C by 2070 if fossil fuel pollution is not slashed.
Winters will also be considerably hotter, with average temperatures increasing by up to 4.2C.
The scientists outlined a far more extreme version of Britain’s climate in which this year's weeks-long heatwave becomes the norm while winter rainfall increases by more than a third.
Flooding will also be a major issue as sea levels around the country rise, and coastal communities will have to adapt rapidly or abandon homes to the rising tides.
Sea levels affecting London could rise by up to 1.15 metres by 2100 if climate-warming emissions continue to climb.
Even if emissions are cut in line with the Paris climate agreement to curb temperature rises to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels, sea levels could still be up to 70cm higher in the capital by 2100.
I'm confused. It used to be 'climate change'. Lately, all I hear about is 'global warming'.
Did somebody figure out that greenhouse gas shouldn't result in cooling? Particulates help cooling, but many countries cleaned up their air at the end of the twentieth century, encouraging warming, but only compared to the human-caused cooling. Except for volcanoes. Oh, and forest fires. Sooo confused.
Greenhouse gas theory says that the same light let in, can't get it. That's pure magic, a chromatic maxwell's demon.
If it insulates at all, it will cool the earth, since the sun is on fire and the earth isn't.
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Trump administration imposed a new round of sanctions on Iran on November 5, 2018 aimed at zeroing oil and gas exports and announced that these sanctions would be the toughest yet on Iran. Then, Secretary Pompeo announced that eight countries would be exempted from Iran’s sanctions on humanitarian grounds, to supply food and medicine, but this exemption was temporary and would be subject to an immediate reduction of 40 to 50 percent of Iran’s oil purchase.
The Iranian regime, which was looking for an opportunity to ride on the wave of the exemptions for the eight countries on Iran’s oil purchases, used mass propaganda to induce the popular belief that the United States had failed completely in Iran’s sanctions and they would not disrupt Iran’s foreign exchange earnings.
But, according to credible reports, after November 5, the Iranian regime has been providing artificial respiration for its controlled economy by taking tens of millions of dollars from banks and injecting it into the market to absorb the shocks of the sanctions. This, of course, against a backdrop of suppressive military-police activity, including daily executions, carried out to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

[Southern Poverty Law Center] Originally a putatively Muslim group, Nuwaubianism is best understood as a cult that promotes a bizarre and complicated "theology."
Nuwaubians refer to their belief system ‐ which mixes black supremacist ideas with worship of the Egyptians and their pyramids, a belief in UFOs and various conspiracies related to the Illuminati and the Bilderbergers, as "Nuwaubianism" ‐ not as theology, but as "factology, "Right Knowledge," or a slew of other names. The group’s founder and leader, Dwight York, took extreme advantage of its adherents, sexually abusing their children and conning the adults out of their possessions. In April 2004, he was sentenced to 135 years in prison for molesting children, among other crimes.
IN ITS OWN WORDS
"We are the Indigenous people of these shores, before the settlers from Europe came to these shores spreading their way of life, their filth and religion."
"White people are the devil. They say the Nuwaubians are not racist ‐ bullcrap! I am...White people are devils ‐ always was, always will be."
‐ Dwight York, from his lecture "Egipt [sic] and the Mask of God"
"Christianity is merely a tool used by the Devil (Paleman) to keep you, the Nubian (Black) man, woman, and child blind to your true heritage and perfect way of life (Islam). It is another means of slavery."
‐ Dwight York, "Santa or Satan? The Fallacy of Christmas," undated essay
"The Caucasian has not been chosen to lead the world. They lack true emotions in their creation. We never intended them to be peaceful. They were bred to be killers, with low reproduction levels and a short life span. What you call Negroid was to live 1,000 years each and the other humans 120 years. But the warrior seed of Caucasians is only 60 years old. They were only created to fight other invading races, to protect the God race Negroids. But they went insane, lost control when they were left unattended. They were never to taste blood. They did, and their true nature came out. ... Because their reproduction levels were cut short, their sexual organs were made the smallest so that the female of their race will want to breed with Negroids to breed themselves out of existence after 6,000 years. It took 600 years to breed them, part man and part beast." Moor at the link
