With 10 percent of the 420 pregnant illegal immigrant girls still in federal custody, the Trump administration is in a battle with the ACLU over abortion rights, The Washington Times reported.
- 420 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) were taken into custody in 2017
- 18 of those requested abortions
- 11 had the abortions
- 43 pregnant illegals remain in custody of the House and Human Services Department.
The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit against the feds to allow the girls’ the same access to abortions as Americans, the Times reports. The Trump administration contends none of the 43 still in custody even want abortions, the Times reports.
Even if they did, the administration contends it has the right to disallow major surgeries of all UACs, and that taxpayers paying for abortions of them is illegal, the Times reported.

Germany, the most financially stable of the European countries, is in its worst political crisis in decades as Chancellor Angela Merkel failed over the weekend to forge a majority coalition to govern the country.
Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union relied heavily upon its alliance with the Christian Social Union of Bavaria and the Social Democratic Party to maintain a majority government coalition in he Bundestag, the lower house of the German federal legislature. That alliance has fallen apart due to disagreements over a number of key issues, including immigration, “climate change,” and how to reform the European Union in the wake of last year’s Brexit vote.
Unable to come to a consensus agreement to forge a majority government coalition with its traditional allies, Merkel’s Unionists turned to the right-wing Alternative for Germany, the libertarian Free Democratic Party, and the uber-environmentalist Greens to see if an alliance could be forged with former opponents. Over the weekend, those negotiations fell apart along the same lines as the negotiations with the SPD.

It’s easy to get lost in all things Middle East, especially concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.
Three days after the most stunning purge in recent Saudi history – which was really a countercoup, that led to the arrest of dozen of Saudi Arabian royals, ministers and businessmen to further the control of the Kingdom – Saudi Arabia called Yemen’s missile launch on Riyadh an ‘act of war’ by Iran, and also played victim by saying Lebanon has declared war against the Kingdom.
How to make sense of this all?
An author on twitter by the handle beautifully outlines today’s events in an easy to understand video titled: PAX AMERICANA, PetroDollar & the Coming CRISIS in the GULF…
The author of the video focuses on the Middle East and says a perfect storm is gathering upon the horizon, as the whole world is changing and the only way to change it for the better is to understand the world around you.

It was only days ago when WND reported Xochi Mochi made an appearance at the Michelle Obama public library in Long Beach, California, hitting the pro-LGBTQ, transgender, drag-queen friendly, Satanist-approved political hot buttons all in one shot.
Mochi was there to read to young children, a fad that is spreading, with new reports that there now are drag queen story hours for children as young as two years old in the United Kingtom.
It was the Daily Mail that reported that drag queens were being brought into taxpayer-funded nursery schools in the U.K., “so that children as young as two can learn about transgender issues” and be taught “LGBT tolerance.”
Nursery managers reported in the Mail that children need to have the indoctrination so they can “see people who defy rigid gender restrictions.”

I know that the headline sounds absolutely crazy, but this is actually a true story. A Silicon Valley executive named Anthony Levandowski has already filed paperwork with the IRS for the nonprofit corporation that is going to run this new religion. Officially, this new faith will be known as “Way Of The Future”, and you can visit the official website right here. Of course nutjobs are creating “new religions” all the time, but in this case Levandowski is a very highly respected tech executive, and his new religion is even getting coverage from Wired magazine…
The new religion of artificial intelligence is called Way of the Future. It represents an unlikely next act for the Silicon Valley robotics wunderkind at the center of a high-stakes legal battle between Uber and Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous-vehicle company. Papers filed with the Internal Revenue Service in May name Levandowski as the leader (or “Dean”) of the new religion, as well as CEO of the nonprofit corporation formed to run it.
So what will adherents of this new faith actually believe?
To me, it sounds like a weird mix of atheism and radical transhumanism.

The European Central Bank has unveiled a new set of banking plans that will allow failing banks to freeze their deposits in the event of an economic catastrophe to prevent further bank failures.
Called a “moratorium tool,” the freeze would be temporary and would affect all of a bank’s liabilities, including cash deposits, meaning people with bank accounts would not be able to access their own money until the freeze is lifted. The idea is to prevent a “bank run” if a financial institution is determined to be “failing or likely to fail.”
The move suggests Europe is anticipating some kind of economic calamity they haven’t yet made public. In 2008, the global recession and subsequent loss of both investors and depositors led to the failure of a number of large bank corporations. While most countries in the EU seem to support the plan, the Bank of England is adamantly opposed, saying the plan itself could lead to financial instability.

About five years ago, lawmakers in New Hampshire approved a series of changes to improve their citizens’ access to homeschooling, but they now appear to be preparing to roll back those improvements.
And it’s generated considerable controversy, since one legislator opposing homeschooling called it “child abuse.”
Which wasn’t received well by another lawmaker whose children mostly have graduated from the family’s homeschool, and have gone to top-tier colleges.
The Home School Legal Defense Association is reporting on the situation, as it was involved in the improvements back in 2012.
Besides “child abuse,” homeschooling there also has been condemned with comments like, “Half the kids are failing to learn,” and “it’s a floodgate for dropouts,” HSLDA reported.
“Recent comments like these reveal antagonism toward homeschool among certain factions in the New Hampshire legislature, explaining why we appear headed toward a legislative battle over homeschool freedoms,” the group revealed Friday.

Results of a two-month nationwide survey show a majority of the public supports lifting a ban on same-sex marriage. The result is set to intensify a divisive debate about how to enshrine marriage equality into law.
Australians voted “Yes” to a controversial national survey on whether to allow same-sex marriage, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) announced late on Tuesday.
The results, which showed 61.6 percent of voters are in favor of a change in the law versus 38.4 percent opposed, were released at 10.00 a.m. local time (23.00 UTC), and came after more than a decade of wrangling over whether to follow almost every developed country in overturning a ban on gay marriage.

This is the first confirmed case of the gene editing of human embryos in the US and it gets scientists one step closer to the ability to create genetically engineered humans. Researchers in Portland, Oregon have used a powerful gene editing tool called CRISPR to create genetically modified human embryos, MIT Technology Review reported in an exclusive.
CRISPR, which is often compared to the cut-and-paste function on a word processor, is a powerful and comparatively new genetic engineering technique that allows scientists to make specific, targeted changes to the DNA of a plant, animal, or human. It’s relatively cheap and easy to use and has the potential to cure a wide range of diseases, such as muscular dystrophy or HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). But scientists seem to be using it to create designer humans and animals instead leading to ethics questions.
In 2015, Chinese scientists used CRISPR to make muscled beagles. But even beyond the often-stated fear that gene editing will lead to a world of designer babies and “genetic have-nots,” CRISPR is still new and may have consequences we don’t understand.

The U.S. Army is lifting an ban on recruits with a history of mental illness as a means of boosting recruiting numbers, a unilateral decision that could damage readiness and actually hurt the effort to recruit quality young Americans to serving their country in uniform.
The Army made the decision in August, but it is only making it public now as it fears efforts to recruit 80,000 new soldiers by September 2018 may fall short. Americans who deal with bipolar disorder, depression, self-mutilation or drug and alcohol abuse are now eligible to be recruited, although the Army insists it will screen such applicants vigorously to ensure they are fit for service.
That’s not good enough for Center for Military Readiness President Elaine Donnelly.
“This is not a good sign,” Donnelly told WND and Radio America. “At least one expert quoted in the USA Today story said that when you induct people who have psychological problems, it is definitely a red flag. Those psychological problems often get worse in the military. Rates of suicide in the military are much higher than in the civilian world.”
