  4. China Uighurs: A model's video gives a rare glimpse inside internment By John Sudworth BBC 8/4/20 EXCERPT: Merdan Ghappar was used to posing for the camera. As a model for the massive Chinese online retailer Taobao, the 31-year-old was well paid to flaunt his good looks in slick promotional videos for clothing brands. But one video of Mr Ghappar is different. Instead of a glitzy studio or fashionable city street, the backdrop is a bare room with grubby walls and steel mesh on the window. And in place of the posing, Mr Ghappar sits silently with an anxious expression on his face. Holding the camera with his right hand, he reveals his dirty clothes, his swollen ankles, and a set of handcuffs fixing his left wrist to the metal frame of the bed - the only piece of furniture in the room. The video of Mr Ghappar, along with a number of accompanying text messages also passed to the BBC, together provide a chilling and extremely rare first-hand account of China's highly secure and secretive detention system - sent directly from the inside. The material adds to the body of evidence documenting the impact of China's fight against what it calls the "three evil forces" of separatism, terrorism, and extremism in the country's far western region of Xinjiang. Over the past few years, credible estimates suggest, more than one million Uighurs and other minorities have been forced into a network of highly secure camps in Xinjiang that China has insisted are voluntary schools for anti-extremism training. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents and, recent research shows, women have been forcibly subjected to methods of birth control.

  7. New York's wealthy Upper East Side reports a shocking 286% increase in robberies - with armed gunmen holding up residents just feet from the homes of billionaires ANDREW COURT Daily Mail 8/4/20 EXCERPT: New York City's wealthiest neighborhood is grappling with a spike in armed robberies, new data reveals. Manhattan's Upper East Side has seen 27 robberies over the past four weeks - a 286 percent increase when compared to the same period last year, according to the NYPD. Alarmingly, a significant number of those have involved locals being held up at gunpoint. For the entirety of 2019, the Upper East Side only reported four armed robberies. This year, 14 have already been reported. The figures are causing alarm in the ritzy neighborhood, where residents boast an average annual income of $322,400. The Upper East Side is also known for its high concentration of billionaires - and some of the crimes have taken place just feet from their lavish residences. (Full Story)
  8. Federal Officers Blinded by Powerful Lasers Aimed by Violent Portland Rioters Are Regaining Sight VICTORIA TAFT PJ Media 8/4/20 EXCERPT: Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli says in all 49 years of existence of the Federal Protective Service “they’ve never seen anything like [the riots of] Portland.” And that includes the lasers being used by violent black bloc attired antifa and their allies in the Black Lives Matter movement who have been rioting for the past nearly 70 nights. Cuccinelli, testifying before a special subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee on anarchist and antifa violence, said that antifa rioters have begun using more lasers aimed at federal officers to blind them.

  9. Protesters sue Seattle, claiming they need 'expensive' protective gear to demonstrate safely BRECK DUMAS The Blaze 8/4/20 EXCERPT: A group of protesters has filed a lawsuit against the city of Seattle, claiming the police department's anti-riot tactics have forced demonstrators to buy prohibitively "expensive" protective gear in order to continue to enjoy their First Amendment rights. What are the details? KIRO-TV reported that the suit was filed Monday "on behalf of five protesters who attended the July 25 protest on Capitol Hill that police later declared a riot, seek[ing] an order from a judge to stop the city from using controversial tactics on protesters, including blast balls and pepper spray." "Because protestors now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely," the filing claims, "the indiscriminate use of weapons by [the Seattle Police Department] implicates equal protection." It went to on say that "each of the Plaintiffs was unable to protest for a period of time for want of additional gear necessitated by SPD's unmitigated and indiscriminate tactics utilized without restraint."

  10. Trump Signs $3 Billion-a-Year Great American Outdoors Act to Bolster Conservation, National Parks DARLENE SUPERVILLE Time 8/4/20 EXCERPT: President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed into law legislation that will devote nearly $3 billion annually to conservation projects, outdoor recreation and maintenance of national parks and other public lands. The measure was overwhelmingly approved by Congress. “There hasn’t been anything like this since Teddy Roosevelt, I suspect,” Trump said about the 26th president, who created many national parks, forests and monuments to preserve the nation’s natural resources. Supporters say the Great American Outdoors Act is the most significant conservation legislation enacted in nearly half a century. Opponents counter that the money isn’t enough to cover the estimated $20 billion maintenance backlog on federally owned lands. The law requires full, mandatory funding of the popular Land and Water Conservation Fund and addresses the maintenance backlog facing America’s national parks and public lands. The law would spend about $900 million a year — double current spending — on the conservation fund and another $1.9 billion per year on improvements at national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and range lands. Supporters say the legislation will create at least 100,000 jobs, while restoring national parks and repairing trails and forest systems. The park maintenance backlog has been a problem for decades, through Republican and Democratic administrations. (Full Story)

Just out is the daily Rasmussen Reports presidential approval rating for Trump at 51%. Notably, said Rasmussen, at this stage of his presidency, former President Barack Obama had a 44% approval rating. (Full Story)
  12. Trump Administration to Announce $35 Million Housing Grant for Trafficking Victims CHARLIE SPIERING Breitbart 8/4/20 EXCERPT: The White House on Tuesday will announce a $35 million grant to help fund housing grants for victims of human trafficking. The grants will be delivered by the Office for Victims of Crime, a component of the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs. They will go to 73 different organizations across the country that offer housing assistance, transitional housing, and housing cost assistance. “Shelter is the number one most requested service for all crisis cases on the national human trafficking hotline,” a senior administration official told reporters in a briefing including Breitbart News. Attorney General William Barr will join a roundtable at the White House on human trafficking with Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, White House Special Adviser for Human Trafficking Heather Fischer, and leaders of organizations founded to help trafficking victims.

  13. Federal Court: No Judicial Immunity for Massachusetts Judge Charged With Helping Illegal Alien Evade ICE Fuzzy Slippers Legal Insurrection 8/4/20 EXCERPT: Last year, Kemberlee wrote about a Massachusetts judge, Shelley Joseph, who was indicted for helping an illegal alien evade ICE. A federal judge has rejected Joseph’s defense team’s motion to dismiss based on Joseph’s judicial immunity, bringing Joseph one step closer to a federal trial. Joseph faces obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges for her role in the alleged escape. No trial date has been set. NBC News reported at the time of the indictment: A Massachusetts judge conspired with a court officer to help a twice-deported undocumented immigrant slip out a back exit of a courthouse and elude arrest by immigration authorities, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday. Judge Shelley Joseph and court officer Wesley MacGregor were hit with federal obstruction of justice charges for allegedly aiding the defendant, who was arrested in March 2018 on charges of drug possession and being a fugitive from justice, according to an indictment by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston. The man, identified as A.S., was allowed to dash out of a rear sally port entrance at the state courthouse in Newton, Massachusetts, on April 2, 2018, after a plainclothes immigration enforcement agent identified himself to the judge and other courtroom personnel, federal prosecutors said.

    These Two Charts Could Send Dr. Fauci To Prison

    Your study is flawed. HCQ when used with Zpacks and Zinc at ONSET of the disease is very successful. If you wait to go to a hospital then you already are past the point of no return for HCQ. It stops replication of the virus, do you know what that means? If the virus has already replicated then it is USELESS. Thus you take it at the beginning. I don't know how much more simple we can make it for simpletons like you.
