????? Vatican welcomes Iran deal, urges Israel to give up their own nukes
Pope Francis plans to meet with Cuba's president and its priests, its young and its sick, its churchgoers and its seminarians…..But not its dissidents.

President Obama issues new executive order which authorizes federal agencies to conduct behavioral experiments on U.S. citizens in order to advance government initiatives.

More fundamental transformation:  Obama wants to raise the limit on the number of refugees from around the world allowed to enter the United States -- from 70,000 this year to 85,000 next year and 100,000 in fiscal 2017.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air-conditioned tents sitting empty, but still won’t take Syrian refugees

Greg Bruen has had enough. This Morristown resident is selling his house and moving out. He's even painting signs and displaying them on his lawn to tell the world why. Illegal immigrants are living 30 to a house in his neighborhood. Bruen says that they're creating a fire hazard the town will take no action on. He says he's had his life threatened 16 times and had paint thrown at the signs.
35 MILLION migrants heading to Europe.
Top Imam Sheikh Muhammad Ayed recently gave a speech in which he asserted that Muslims should use the migrant crisis to breed with European citizens and “conquer their countries”.

L.A. advertises Itself as "Northern Capital of Latin America" for 2024 Olympic Bid

The federal government can tell you how many "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders" stole a car, the precise number of "American Indian or Alaska Natives" who were arrested for vagrancy or how many whites were busted for counterfeiting in any given year. But the government agencies that crunch crime numbers are utterly unable -- or unwilling -- to pinpoint for the public how many illegal immigrants are arrested within U.S. borders each year.

Planned Parenthood spent $5 million to support Democrats, $13 thousand for the GOP.

House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) is bracing for what could be the toughest weeks of his speakership as several dozen conservatives in his party are threatening to topple him unless he is more ferocious with Democrats during the upcoming fiscal showdowns.

Classified emails passed through commercial email services like Google and AOL on their path to or from a private server maintained by Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, but so far, the government appears to have done little to retrieve or secure the messages.
“What´s most fascinating about this New York Times story, which ran over the weekend, isn´t that it depicts Hillary Clinton as unapologetic and calculating. It´s that the Times spoke to at least six sources within her inner circle who helped paint the unflattering portrait, charting Hillary´s halting journey from obstinately refusing to apologize to finally issuing an insincere mea culpa as her email scandal continued to spiral.”

Hillary had to know this was awkward, but modern conventions of political correctness now require liberal women to stand unequivocally behind alleged victims of sexual assault. So, here was Hillary on Monday: “To every survivor of sexual assault…You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.” That’s of course news to a number of women who Hillary not only refused to believe, she actively participated in campaigns to discredit them and destroy their reputations.

We don’t know how to do it?  China has been contracted to build a bullet train linking Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

PRESIDENTIAL RACE CONTINUES
For the first three months of his campaign, Donald Trump built a wall of invincibility between himself and fellow Republican candidates. But on Thursday, as the dust settled from the second presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan presidential library, one thing became clear--that wall had been torn down.  Carly Fiorina emerged as the consensus winner of the 11-candidate showdown, in no small part because she landed a solid blow on Trump, shaming him for his disparaging "look at that face" comment.
On the other hand, Trump was by far the favorite choice among readers of the influential Drudge Report after the second GOP presidential debate. By the end of the event, Trump, who is number one in the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings, received 61 percent of votes. At a distant second place with 14 percent was Carly Fiorina. In third were Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, who tied with 6 percent. The poll is not scientific and visitors to the website can vote multiple times. Still, it offers some indication of the popularity for the candidates among a large swath of conservative readers across the country.
Her strong performance at the second Republican presidential debate has put a new spotlight on Carly Fiorina’s long-shot bid for the 2016 nomination. Whether she can turn buzz into momentum, however, hinges on overcoming a set of substantive and logistical challenges. The day-after,  reviews from the conservative commentariat were ecstatic. “Fiorina deflated front-runner Donald Trump, something no other Republican contender has managed to do to the bombastic billionaire.”

Ben Carson, the soft-spoken former neurosurgeon, is running nearly even with Donald Trump, according to a national poll released Tuesday. In the CBS/New York Times survey, 27 percent of Republicans surveyed picked Trump for their presidential choice, and 23 percent chose Carson — within the poll’s 6-point margin of error.

Trump's rally at the American Airlines Center Monday night boasted the crowd size, the intensity, the hero worship and level of excitement not seen since Democrats packed Barack Obama's rallies in 2008 and 2012. It was a new experience for many Republicans — something essentially unheard of at a GOP event, especially one so early in the campaign season. Looking around in wonder, one attendee asked simply, "Well, why shouldn't Republicans have someone to be excited by?"

Not everyone is excited:  The national conservative group Club for Growth announced a $1 million ad campaign attacking Donald Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, marking the most direct and well-funded attempt from within the Republican Party yet to take down its presidential front-runner.

Bobby Jindal:  “Trump is a madman who must be stopped…..The problem with Donald Trump is that he will never be president. His nomination as the Republican candidate would gift the White House to Hillary Clinton. He would self-destruct in a general election. In fact, he may be Clinton's only hope. And even if he were somehow to win, we have no idea how he would govern…….His problem with Washington isn't big government, it's that he's not running it. He's not liberal, moderate or conservative. He's not Republican or Democrat. Donald Trump is for Donald Trump. He believes only in himself.”

If frontrunner Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, one of the biggest names in the Republican Establishment, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, says he “doubts” he would support the Democrat in a general election but would “support getting someone good on the ballot as a third party candidate.”

Wall Street's latest panic: Trump could win.   With Bush and Clinton taking their lumps, financial executives face populist critics in both parties.

IN OTHER COLUMNS
“Despite many people who urge us all to vote, as a civic duty, the purpose of elections is not participation. The purpose is to select individuals for offices, including president of the United States. Whoever has that office has our lives, the lives of our loved ones and the fate of the entire nation in his or her hands. An election is not a popularity contest, or an award for showmanship. If you want to fulfill your duty as a citizen, then you need to become an informed voter. And if you are not informed, then the most patriotic thing you can do on Election Day is stay home. Otherwise your vote, based on whims or emotions, is playing Russian roulette with the fate of this nation.”
                -Thomas Sowell

“After the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, we are entering an era when people alive at this moment may live to see a day when American cities are left in radioactive ruins. We need all the wisdom, courage and dedication in the next president — and his or her successors — to save us and our children from such a catastrophe. Rhetoric and showmanship will certainly not save us.”
             -Thomas Sowell

LEFTIST WATCH
Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said that PP was founded to produce "a cleaner race."  Here are more shocking quotes.

President Obama and his rancid leftist allies have subjected America to a blizzard of lies. Nothing that leaves his mouth even remotely parrots the truth, but typically stands truth on its head…..Now the administration wants to use the refugee resettlement program to import a flood of Syrian immigrants into the U.S. It will virtually guarantee an opening for ISIS and other terrorists to establish bases in the U.S. legally with taxpayer dollars. Obama created his own 9-11 in Benghazi. Apparently that wasn’t enough. Now he wants one here.

ARTICLES
In an effort to assuage what is perceived to be the fragile sensibilities of Muslim-Americans, Barack Obama has once again bowed to political correctness by extending his usual partiality toward an individual based solely on skin color and religion. This time, the person at the center of the controversy is Ahmed Mohamed. Ahmed is the 14-year-old Sudanese-American aspiring clockmaker who has proven to be bright enough to impress his teachers with his engineering prowess – but apparently not bright enough to know that bringing a homemade digital clock to school with wires snaking out of it, stored inside a suitcase, isn’t a good idea.

WISE WORDS
“If we move in mass, be it ever so circuitously, we shall attain our object; but if we break into squads, everyone pursuing the path he thinks most direct, we become an easy conquest to those who can now barely hold us in check.”
