CHINA IS FINALY PUTTING THE SCREWS TO NORTH KOREA - DAILY CALLER

China is preparing to deliver a crushing blow to the weak North Korean economy.

It is suspending all coal imports from North Korea, the Ministry of Commerce said Saturday, without going into specifics as to why it was taking action.

Coal exports are a primary source of income for the reclusive state. Following North Korea’s fourth nuclear test in February last year, the United Nations Security Council passed UNSC Resolution 2270, which placed restrictions on North Korea’s coal exports but made exceptions through the “livelihood purposes” clause.

China has been accused of exploiting this loophole to continue importing North Korean coal in order to reduce international pressure on Pyongyang...

CHINESE USING FLAME-THROWING DRONES TO CLEAN POWER LINES - POPULAR MECHANICS

Incredible new pictures show that a power company in Xiangyang, China has a creative solution to the problem of garbage hanging on power lines: flame-throwing drones.

The drones are deployed to fly up alongside hard-to-reach stretches of wire and burn off garbage like plastic bags with giant plumes of flame.

Shooting fire at a power line may seem dangerous, but it's a whole lot less dangerous than a human being pulling stuff off a wire 30 feet up in the air.

The photos have a pretty dystopian aesthetic - the unmanned eight-bladed copters look more than a little like flying, flame-shooting spiders. But not to worry, these drones are used for improving our...

BRAZIL'S TWO LARGEST NEWSPAPAERS FORCED BY GOVERNMENT TO DELETE STORY EMBARRASSING TO PRESIDENT - THE INTERCEPT

A major assault on basic press freedom occurred today in Brazil, perpetrated by the government of President Michel Temer, his wife, Marcela, and a Brazilian judge. As a result, the nation’s two largest newspapers - Folha de S.Paulo and O Globo - were forced to delete a news article that each had published about a matter of great public interest.

Because one of the goals in creating The Intercept was to defend and vindicate press freedom around the world, we are publishing the censored materials so that the public can see them. Few things are more dangerous than politicians and courts joining to tell newspapers what they can and cannot report, and we will do what we can to rectify that attack on the public’s right to know. The case in question arises...

Nearly 45,000 citations were issued in just 15 months, and though motorists were permitted to challenge the tickets, the judge saw the administrative system as unfairly favoring the...

While the goal of increasing the minimum wage is to increase earnings for low-income individuals, the report finds that the additional earnings transferred from the job losers to the job keepers is minimal. For example, minimum wage hikes are projected to increase earnings by only $6,900, which would be split among all employees affected by the increase.

"While proposals to raise the minimum wage are...

FAMILIES SUE NYC FOR REPORTING THEM TO CHILD SERVICES WHEN THEY HOMESCHOOL - THE FEDERALIST

New York City mother Tanya Acevedo received a home visit from Child Protective Services at 7 p.m. this winter. They were investigating her for “educational neglect” because she had legally withdrawn her child from the public system to homeschool.

After Tanya let them in, a CPS investigator insisted that they interview her child in private, and inspected their apartment, including a look inside Tanya’s refrigerator - standard practice for a home under investigation for “neglect.” The officer left Tanya with stern instructions to produce documents and her child the next day at the CPS office.

Tanya called the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) for help. After many calls...

SEATTLE JUDGE WRONG, OVERREACHED WITH NATIONWIDE INJUNCTION ON TRAVEL BAN - ROBERT BARNES

Two different courts, on opposite coasts, ruled in opposite directions on Friday. A Boston federal court affirmed Trump’s executive order as “bona fide”; a Seattle federal court enjoined it. Both spoke to requests for “nationally” effective rulings. Can federal courts give conflicting directions to government employees? Did Homeland predict this in their screenplays?

The Seattle decision overstepped the traditional boundaries of district court authority, especially when sister courts are ruling on the same issues. Both the Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit warned against issuing a national order in just these kind of cases.

Unlike state courts, federal courts enjoy the...

FAKE HATE CRIME: WISCONSIN COLLEGE STUDENT PUT ANTI-MUSLIM GRAFFITI ON OWN DOOR - BREITBART

A student at a Wisconsin college was arrested for defacing his own dorm room door with anti-Muslim graffiti in order to get attention, according to police.

Officials at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin, were shocked when a student, 20-year-old Michael Kee, reported that anti-Muslim threats appeared on his door and on a wall outside his dorm room. The student told police he felt he was being threatened over his religion and ethnicity.

Police initially treated the incident as a hate crime, but after an investigation they determined that the student had perpetrated a fraud and painted the graffiti himself, according to WQRF.

FEDERAL JUDGE UNBLOCKS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN, ASKS "WHERE DOES IT SAY MUSLIM COUNTRIES?" - ZERO HEDGE

As we detailed earlier, in a blow to every mainstream media news outlet (and likely hurting a lot of feelings), President Donald Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries will take effect in Boston on Sunday after a federal judge refused to extend a temporary ruling blocking its enforcement.

As Bloomberg reports, the decision by U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton on Friday dealt a setback to rights advocates who argued that blocking people from seven nations in the Middle East was unconstitutional. Gorton was weighing whether to extend a seven-day order blocking parts of Trump’s Executive Order.

JUDGE DISMISSES $4 MILLION LAWSUIT BY LEFTIST PUNDIT WHO TRUMP CALLED A 'REAL DUMMY' - LAW NEWZ

AUSTRALIA'S REFUGEES ARE NOT AMERICAS'S PROBLEM - KYLE SAMMIN

On Wednesday night, the foreign policy world was atwitter over reports of a heated phone call between President Trump and the prime minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, about refugees intercepted while trying to enter Australia.

But while news reports focused on the controversy and chaos that came from this dust-up with our antipodean ally, the underlying question is strangely untouched: why should the United States accept refugees from Australia?

Accepting refugees from Syria and Iraq is a more straightforward question, whether you agree with it or not. Someone leaving those countries and arriving here is exiting a war-torn hell hole and entering a paradise. Even sharing the burden of refugee resettlement makes some sense when you...

“Fuck white supremacy, fuck the U.S. empire, fuck your imperialist ass lives. That shit gotta go.” At 1:50 in the video clip, she goes, “And we need to start killing people. First off, we need to start killing the White House. The White House must die....

The sober and logical reasons for President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and visitors are rising above the noise after an evening of hysterical over-reactions and emotional meltdowns on the nation’s TV networks.

Advocates of sane, secure immigration policy have long noted that it’s almost impossible to have a reasonable discussion of the refugee and immigration issues, because it’s been sentimentalized and politicized beyond the realm of rational thought.

FLASHBACK: OBAMA REGIME STOPPED PROCESSING IRAQ REFUGEE REQUESTS FOR 6 MONTHS IN 2011 - THE FEDERALIST

Although the Obama administration currently refuses to temporarily pause its Syrian refugee resettlement program in the United States, the State Department in 2011 stopped processing Iraq refugee requests for six months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered evidence that several dozen terrorists from Iraq had infiltrated the United States via the refugee program.

After two terrorists were discovered in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in 2009, the FBI began reviewing reams of evidence taken from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that had been used against American troops in Iraq. Federal investigators then tried to match fingerprints from those bombs to the fingerprints of individuals who had recently entered the United States as refugees...

TRUMP'S EXECUTIVE ORDERS DRAMATICALLY EXPAND POWER OF IMMIGRATION OFFICERS - CNN

The immigration executive orders signed by President Donald Trump this week could amount to a vast expansion of authority for individual immigration officers and a dramatic increase in efforts to detain and deport undocumented immigrants.

LAWSUITS AGAINST TRUMP ON 'MUSLIM IMMIGRATION BAN' WILL FAIL FAST - ROBERT BARNES

The ban is perceived by some as a partial Muslim ban. Either way, at any trial, the law supports Trump’s order, and CAIR or others are likely to lose, completely, conclusively and quickly.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD: 'WE DON'T OFFER PRENATAL CARE' - WORLDNETDAILY

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is on record stating her business is essential to American women because of the prenatal care it offers.

She is emphasizing that point as a move develops in Congress to withhold the half-a-billion taxpayer dollars that each year goes to the abortion-industry behemoth.

The funding must continue, Richards said, because prenatal care is among “the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for.”

The problem?

Planned Parenthood “offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” according to a Tempe...

TRUMP TO SIGN EXECUTIVE ORDERS ADVANCING KEYSTONE, DAKOTA PIPELINES - ZERO HEDGE

It is just day two of his presidency, and already Trump is taking a sledgehammer to the Obama legacy: in his latest move reported moments ago by Bloomberg, president Trump intends to sign two executive actions today that would advance construction of the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, putting a spoke, so to say, in the train wheels of Warren Buffett's train-based oil transportation quasi-monopoly.

The orders would fulfill campaign promises Trump made to approve both pipelines, which face strong opposition from Democrats and environmentalists, but ardent support from the oil industry and the GOP. The White House said Trump plans to sign executive orders at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, but did not provide more details, nor did it respond to...

The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments.

OBAMA REGIME CAUGHT MASSIVELY FABRICATING STUDENT LOAN DEFAULT DATA - ZERO HEDGE

Ever since 2012 we have warned that one of the biggest threats arising from the U.S. student loan bubble - which is no longer disputed by anyone except perhaps members of the outgoing administration - is not that it is soaring at an unprecedented pace, that's obvious for anyone with the latest loan total number over $1.4 trillion, rising at a pace of nearly $100 billion per year, but that the government - either on purpose or due to honest miscalculation - was not correctly accounting for the true extent of delinquencies and defaults.
