Weekend Reads: Outside Looking In

PM: Trump, Senators Have Been Briefed on UFO Sightings: Government officials are suddenly “coming out of the woodwork” to learn more about the Navy’s encounters with mysterious aircraft.

This week, three U.S. Senators were briefed by the Pentagon about the Navy reportedly encountering unidentified aircraft over the years—the latest group of government officials, including President Trump, to receive classified information about UFO sightings. The recent briefings and a renewed government interest in UFOs, as reported by Politico, begs the question: Why now?

As you’d expect, the information passed on by the Pentagon in the secret sessions is highly classified. But a spokesperson for one Senator involved in the meetings, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), explained his intrigue and request for more intel.

“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” said his spokesperson, Rachel Cohen, in a statement. Warner is the current vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Earlier this week, President Trump told ABC News in an interview that he had also been briefed about UFOs, but didn’t seem especially interested in—or convinced by—their existence.

“I want them to think whatever they think,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos. “They do say … I mean, I’ve seen, and I’ve read, and I’ve heard, and I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”

When Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he thought he’d know if there was evidence of extraterrestrials, the President responded, “Well I think my great, our great pilots would know, and some of them really see things that are a little bit different than in the past,” he said. “So we’re gonna see. But we’ll watch it and you’re gonna be the first to know.”

Until the leader of the free world reveals the long-awaited truth about aliens to George Stephanopoulos, however, we can only speculate as to why the federal government is suddenly UFO-curious…

Does anyone who understands “4D Chess” really believe Trump would either confirm something this generations-long mysterious and have the MSM blame him for inciting panic and/or destruction of humanity’s “religions” … or be subjected to ‘debunking’ and MSM ridicule of him depicted like this…

Meanwhile…

It’s not if but when the pandemic erupts from our volcanic border…

Heather Higgins: Border crisis puts everyone’s health at risk – Pandemics can’t become ‘the new normal’

Given the current U.S. measles crisis, the World Health Organization’s assertion that we all just needed to adjust to pandemics as a “new normal,” and the growing possibility of the WHO declaring a global health emergency on Ebola, a CDC public health loophole should give us all serious pause: While the CDC requires all legal immigrants to be vaccinated, there are no vaccination requirements for illegal immigrants, temporary visa holders, or visitors to the U.S.

Indeed, testimony from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says we now face “increased risk of life-threatening incidents and impact to public health” and family units are released with “unknown vaccination status and without a standard medical examination for communicable diseases of public health concern.”

[…]

We are spending $1.6 billion on medical care and attention for those apprehended at the southern border, yet only if an immigrant is a) caught, and b) already presenting as ill is he or she treated….

Despite a number of reports of illness among illegal immigrants before they enter the country or when apprehended and detained, weirdly none are so officially reported once here.

[…]

Diseases like L.A.’s typhoid problem don’t just spring from nowhere. Someone introduced them. Pretending there is no disease among and from illegal immigrants until an underground practitioner reports a Patient Zero is public health malpractice.

Even if we had sensible vaccination requirements in place for everyone, those entering who are never apprehended (estimated in 2017 at just under 60,000 per year), if unvaccinated present risks to themselves, and if infected present risks to others. Preventing a porous border is a matter of public health…

Jeffrey Allan and Erin Parfet: The Left does not hate Trump, they hate…

The left hates many things and Trump, the person, is not even one of them. The left loved Trump when he was one of them. The left loved the Hollywood Trump as he starred in “Apprentice” and was firing people left and right. They loved the Trump who donated to Hillary and other leftist politicians. The left loved the billionaire and playboy Trump.

So what does the left hate?

The left hates many things including what Trump stands for.

Trump stands for making America great. The left seems to hate the prosperity (possibly use the Wall Street protests) that the United States has brought to so many people, not only here in America but around the world. They appear to hate America because it has a fair and just court system not controlled by the rich and powerful (comparatively to most other countries). They talk like they hate America because it polices the world, keeping it safe from ruthless dictators. Thus, the left really does not hate Trump, they really hate America.

Trump stands for capitalism. The left seems to hates capitalism because it exposes their own greed. Thus they hide behind fake generosity that gives away other people’s money. They hate capitalism because only capitalism levels the field where today’s rich can become poor (mostly through their own wrong choices) and the poor can become rich (mostly through their own right choices). Thus, they give the idea that they hate free choice and the rights of people to choose their destinies. Thus, what the left hates is really you and me…

It’s not just the left. It’s the cuckish (my Grandmother and her broken English used that word for a baby’s poop-filled diaper) RINOs too, only they insist on acting as if they don’t hate Trump’s supporters…

Breitbart: George Will: Most Americans Are ‘Sad and Embarrassed and Exhausted’ by Trump

Will said, “They think the country is angry. I don’t think Americans are angry. I think those who watch certain cable channels are angry, but that’s a small slice of the country. I think most Americans are sad and embarrassed and exhausted.”

He added, “They’re sad because they’re embarrassed and they’re exhausted because of the constant embarrassment that is inflicted on them by a president that never sleeps. The American people don’t want transformation. They want restoration. They can get the transformation later, but they would like a period of normality.”

WSJ: Cuba Ration Lines Grow Tense as Economy Flails

Pushed by the implosion of top ally Venezuela and sanctions imposed by the Trump administration, Cuba has driven into an economic ditch. The government has tightened state rations. Residents stand in lines for hours to buy scarce basic goods such as eggs, flour and chicken.

For many Cubans, ration lines and ostrich farms recall the grim “Special Period” in the 1990s after the collapse of its benefactor, the Soviet Union. As the Communist-run island endured near famine conditions, residents devoured cats and fried “steaks” made of breaded grapefruit rind.

“We are starting to go into a new special period,” said Osmary Armas, 45, who owns a neoclassical mansion turned bed-and-breakfast that has been largely bereft of U.S. visitors in recent months. “Things are very bad.”

For years, American officials made no secret of their belief that if the U.S. turned the economic screws, the Cuban government would be forced out. But the Cuban regime has had nearly six decades of experience defying the U.S., administering scarcity and dishing out repression.

Cuba’s police state is intact. The government has scant opposition, and commands the loyalties of many…

Cuba and Venezuela for us just an election away. How fucking cool is that…

WashTimes: Communist Party, USA praises Democrats’ policy shifts ahead of centennial celebration

The Communist Party of the USA will celebrate its 100th birthday this weekend in Chicago, at a conference replete with questions about what the future holds for the organization when national Democrats already embrace some of its most coveted goals.

Well, one of our most “Progressive” states is already making progress in that direction, comrades…

James B. Meigs: California Unplugged: To prevent wildfires, the entire state’s power grid is subject to planned blackouts.

The very idea makes the mind reel: San Francisco, San Jose, Silicon Valley—all gone dark. The electric-car charging stations, the $500-a-plate sushi restaurants, the rows of workstations at Google, Uber, Facebook, Twitter, and Salesforce—all suddenly unplugged. This summer, blackouts could plunge large swaths of California into darkness—an act of deliberate policy, not equipment failure or operator errors.

Pacific Gas & Electric, Northern California’s largest power supplier, recently announced that it will begin shutting down parts of the grid, possibly for days at a time, to help reduce the risk of wildfires. Known as “de-energization,” the process sounds like a metaphor for societal collapse—a return to the Dark Ages—but the policy carries a certain perverse logic.

California has always had wildfires, but recent conflagrations have been particularly devastating. Last November’s Camp Fire burned over 150,000 acres, destroyed the town of Paradise, and killed 85 people, making it the deadliest fire in the state’s history. Like many large California wildfires, that one was sparked—quite literally—by an electric power line and then spread by intense winds. In past years, utilities have occasionally shut off power to certain portions of the grid on the windiest days. Through new rules, the state’s power regulators now permit PG&E and other utilities to shut off power to more customers during periods of elevated risk.

The shutdowns have already begun. In early June, PG&E cut off power to parts of Napa and other northern counties on a day when wind gusts reached as high as 71 miles per hour. De-energization traditionally affected people in rural areas, where local power lines traverse forests and scrublands. But PG&E has expanded the policy to the high-voltage lines that transmit power long distances and supply large cities. It seems absurd that the Bay Area, the global epicenter of high-tech industry, could lose power because of a windy day. But that’s the reality, and there are no quick solutions.
As with most vicious problems, the roots of the state’s power dilemma go back decades.

[…]

Many California residents—especially retirees—are drawn to rural areas by the natural beauty. Who wouldn’t want to live in the Sierra foothills? But many also move to escape soaring housing costs in the state’s notoriously anti-development major cities. More people inhabiting the wildland-urban interface means more lives and structures placed at risk. As a result, today’s routine fires cause even more damage than those in the past…

Well! What do ya know, yet another democrat computer/server/data scandal…

Luke Rosiak: Blunders By Democrats And Capitol Police Enabled What Prosecutors Call The ‘Largest Data Theft In Senate History’

Former Democratic aide Jackson Cosko committed the “largest data theft in Senate history” by stealing a senator’s data and “doxxing” Republicans during the hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The crime was enabled by a series of errors by Democrats.

Capitol Police made multiple mistakes that left spy devices operational in the Senate even after the suspect was arrested.

Chuck Ross: Judge Unseals Text Messages Between Paul Manafort And Sean Hannity

The messages, which date from July 14, 2017 to June 5, 2018, show Manafort expressed confidence he would win his court battle with the special counsel. He also said he believed prosecutors wanted him to “make shit up” about President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner in order to get a sweetheart deal with the government….

Both Manafort and Hannity were heavily critical of Robert Mueller, the special counsel, and Andrew Weissmann, the lead prosecutor on Manafort’s case.

“They are self righteous criminals,” Manafort wrote on Feb. 3, 2018….

Kurt Schlichter: Trump’s Way To Victory

Ignore the battlefield prep from the mainstream media – Donald Trump is the odds-on favorite for reelection against whichever weirdo, loser or mutation the Democrats finally pick as their nominee. The leaked polls purportedly showing Trump deep underwater to Floppy Joe and Bernie Stalin and that has-been furry from Texas are about as reliable as the ones the placed Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit in the White House. She’s now stumbling around the woods guzzling from a queen-sized goblet of Trader Joe’s Chardonnay while The Donald is racking up the greatest streak of conservative victories since Ronald Reagan – maybe even Cal Coolidge.
