Rep Steve King – Take $5 Billion From
Planned Parenthood, Food Stamps To Build Border Wall
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Congressman Steve King during their extensive interview about the $1.6 billion that is allocated in the 2018 budget by Congress to begin construction on the Border Wall... She asked, “Are you comfortable providing $1.6 billion of taxpayer money, not from Mexico, to build that wall? He responded, “Absolutely yes and more. And I’d throw another $5 billion on the pile. And I would find a half of a billion dollars of that right out of Planned Parenthood’s budget.” King continued, “And the rest of it could come out of food stamps and the entitlements that are being spread out for people that haven’t worked in three generations. We’ve got to put America back to work, this administration will do it.”... http://rickwells.us/rep-steve-king-take-5-billion-from-planned-pare...

'Water agreement - harbinger of things to come'
{israelnationalnews.com} ~ A press conference just concluded on the U.S. - mediated agreement reached by the PA and Israeli Water Authorities on the regional Red Sea-Dead Sea Conveyance project... Agreements between Israel and the Palestinians regarding the project will allow the flow of tens of millions of cubic meters of water to the PA and Gaza before the project is established. The agreements were mediated by US special envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, who convened a press conference with Minister of Regional Cooperation Tzahi Hanegbi and the head of the Palestinian Water Authority, Mazen Ghuneim, about the agreements... http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/232419?utm_source=...

Scientists Discover Atmospheric Pressure,
Not ‘Greenhouse Gases’ Cause ‘Greenhouse Effect’
by Byron Claghorn
{lidblog.com} ~ Scientists Ned Nikolov and Karl Zeller have a unique and extremely elegant peer-reviewed and published research paper entitled ‘New Insights on the Physical Nature of the Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect Deduced from an Empirical Planetary Temperature Model’... that proves that the accused Greenhouse Gases Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Water Vapor (H2O), etc. are actually innocent of the mistaken claims that they are the cause of Climate Change and the ‘Greenhouse Effect’. Their work comes out of left field; it provides a shocking new paradigm heretofore unbeknown to science; it is physically plausible, and it proves beyond a doubt in principle that greenhouses gases cannot cause, , the global warming observed since 1850. In other words the paper offers scientific proof that humans are not responsible for climate change on Earth. However, the problem now is that both believers and skeptics of anthropogenic-caused climate change have a difficult time accepting the Nikolov-Zeller (NZ)... http://lidblog.com/atmospheric-pressure-greenhouse-effect/

CNN Hires Top al-Qaeda Propagandist for
Documentary, Fails Miserably Trying to Cover It Up

 by Jay Syrmopoulos
{activistpost.com} ~ Bilal Abdul Kareem, of On the Ground News, was contracted by CNN to film a documentary called Undercover in Syria... Kareem is a self-proclaimed media activist living in rebel-held Syria and is considered “one of the top English-language propagandists for al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate Jabat al-Nusra,” according to an Alternet exposé on Abdul Kareem and his connections to terrorism and CNN. On June 16 Abdul Kareem went public with his intimate connection to CNN, and its documentary Undercover in Syria. He relayed his frustration with the network, having essentially whitewashed him out of his credit for a documentary he had a large hand in creating for CNN, which won a prestigious Peabody Award. Abdul Kareem explained how CNN contracted him and his online news outlet, On the Ground News, to film the award-winning documentary... http://www.activistpost.com/2017/07/cnn-hires-top-al-qaeda-propagan...

Sen dinky-Warren Leads “Free Housing
Is A Right” Rally Against Ben Carson, Trump
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ The Blackstone puppeteer holding the strings of President Trump and HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson at a DC march must have been the handiwork of some of Elizabeth dinky-Warren’s staff people... It’s not likely that the agitators standing in the street, chanting or reflexively holding out their hands would even know the name of the world’s largest real estate private equity company and hedge fund on their own. Heck, most of their buildings “ain’t even got no hedges.” It’s a good thing dinky-Warren’s seen their names on campaign fund deposit slips or they might not have known their identity. The march was relatively well attended despite being held on a Wednesday, in the middle of the work week. The participants are likely all Democrats with liar-nObama jobs. liar-nObama jobs don’t occupy much of one’s time, just a matter of checking to make sure the Welfare and EBT loads went on the debit  card correctly...http://rickwells.us/sen-warren-leads-free-housing-right-rally-ben-c...

Crisis: Crime labs' fraudsters and fakers

 by Michelle Malkin
{wnd.com} ~ Junk science endangers lives. Forensic junk science in the hands of overzealous prosecutors, ignorant police detectives and reckless experts threatens liberty.

There is a crisis in America’s government-run crime labs – and it’s not just the result of a few rogue operators. The problem is long-festering and systemic.

In April, Massachusetts state crime lab chemist Annie Dookhan made national headlines after investigations and lawsuits over her misconduct prompted the state’s Supreme Judicial Court to order the largest dismissal of criminal convictions in U.S. history.

Prosecutors were forced to dismiss a stunning 21,000-plus drug cases after Dookhan admitted to forging signatures, misleading investigators and purposely contaminating drug samples en masse over nearly a decade. Dookhan pleaded guilty to dozens of charges of obstruction of justice, perjury and tampering with evidence. Hundreds of defendants have had their convictions tossed on appeal.

Despite a district judge concluding that her actions were “nothing short of catastrophic,” Dookhan served a measly three years in prison before being released last spring.

Another Massachusetts state crime lab worker, Sonja Farak, abused her position to pilfer and ingest the drugs she was supposed to be testing over an eight-year period. Instead of cleaning up, two former assistant attorney generals covered up for Farak and misled a judge who last month dismissed several of the cases tainted by the narcotics-addicted lab worker. Upwards of 10,000 prosecutions may eventually be overturned.

The fraudster’s fate? Crackhead and meth junkie Farak received a mere 18-month jail sentence for snorting the evidence, plus five years’ probation. The two assistant AGs left their jobs for higher-paying positions in government.

Law journals and scientific publications are filled with similar horror stories that have spread from the New York City medical examiner’s office and Nassau County, New York’s police department forensic evidence bureau to the crime labs of West Virginia, Harris County, Texas, North Carolina and jurisdictions in nearly 20 other states.

It’s the wrongfully prosecuted and convicted who suffer the heaviest deprivations – and taxpayers who must foot the astronomical bill for all the costs and damages incurred by crime lab corruptocrats and their enablers.

As I’ve been chronicling in my newspaper columns and CRTV.com investigative reports, many state crime labs and police departments are particularly ill-equipped and inadequately trained to interpret DNA evidence, especially “touch” or “trace” DNA – minute amounts of DNA of unknown origin often transferred through incidental contact – which has resulted in monstrous miscarriages of justice against innocent people.

The aura of infallibility conferred on crime lab analysts by “CSI”-style TV shows exacerbates the problem when juries place undue weight on indeterminate DNA evidence of little to no probative value. Just last week, North Carolina’s Mark Carver, who was convicted of murdering a college student based on dubious touch DNA that was likely the result of investigators’ contamination, won a new court date for a hearing that may set him free.

Costly errors and gross misconduct will continue as long as politicized prosecutors operate with a “win at all costs” agenda and stubbornly refuse to admit their failures. Dark history seems to repeating itself at the Oklahoma City Police Department, home of the late forensic faker Joyce Gilchrist. Known as “Black Magic,” Gilchrist conjured mountains of phony DNA evidence out of whole cloth in collaboration with an out-of-control district attorney over two ruinous decades.

Gilchrist, whose tainted testimony sent 11 inmates to their deaths, passed away two years ago unpunished and unrepentant.

Now, nearly a quarter-century after Gilchrist’s misconduct was first exposed, Oklahoma City has been rocked by secret hearings held two weeks ago in the case of former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw. He was convicted in 2015 on multiple sexual assaults after being railroaded by incompetent and biased police detectives and a DA’s office more concerned about appeasing the social justice mob than seeking the truth.

My investigation of Holtzclaw’s case helped publicize the flawed, sloppy testimony by OCPD crime lab analyst Elaine Taylor and Assistant District Attorney Gayland Gieger, who misled jurors with false assertions about trace skin cell DNA tied to one accuser found on Holtzclaw’s pants – the only indirect forensic evidence in the case. One of the key attendees at the secret hearings last month was Taylor’s OCPD crime lab supervisor, Campbell Ruddock.

Taylor and Gieger failed to fully inform the jury of unknown male DNA found on Holtzclaw’s pants, as well as DNA mixtures from multiple unknown female and male contributors, which clearly supported the hypothesis of innocent, nonsexual DNA indirect transfer. But Gieger baselessly claimed the DNA came from vaginal fluid when Taylor conducted no such confirmatory tests for body fluids nor used an alternate light source. Gieger recklessly yoked the phony DNA “smoking gun” in one accuser’s case to all of the accusers’ allegations. At least two jurors publicly stated after trial that the shoddy DNA evidence persuaded them of Holtzclaw’s collective guilt.

Secrecy about the crime lab crisis is a toxic recipe for more wrongful convictions. The solution lies in greater transparency, external scrutiny, stiffer criminal penalties and real financial consequences for forensic fraudsters and fakers. It’s time to incentivize more whistleblowers, instead of more destructive witch hunts.
