Caravan Migrant Says March to U.S. Border Is for Jobs, Not Asylum

Caravan Woman Seeks a Job

One of the more than 4,000 migrants traveling in a caravan from Honduras through Mexico and eventually to the U.S.-Mexico border admits that she is seeking a job and a community more safe from drugs, neither of which would make her eligible for asylum.

In an interview with NBC News, a migrant identified as Karen Aviles from Honduras traveling with the caravan said she was looking to go to the U.S. to get a job and to provide a safer area for her daughter, whom she said was getting involved in drugs.










Mohammed bin Salman never was a reformer. This has proved it

The Saudi crown prince allowed women to drive, but the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi reveals his true nature

In June, when the ban on Saudi women driving ended, it was portrayed around the world as part of a modernising, liberalising agenda by the new crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. Yet the authorities ordered female activists not to speak out in its favour. Their blunt message was that what was being offered was the gift of King Salman and his crown prince son, and not a result of the campaign by female activists. In fact, the government had arrested 11 of these activists a month beforehand. Though four were released, the remaining seven had led a petition demanding that the female guardianship system – which treats adult women as legal minors – be abolished. They remain in detention without charge, but could face up to 25 years in jail.

In this way, what happened was nothing to do with reform but more like business as usual. In many ways the crown prince has already been more despotic than previous rulers, so the murky events in Istanbul surrounding the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate should not be quite as shocking as they may have first appeared.

Meet Centauro, a small four-legged robot that researchers say will change disaster relief efforts

Italian researchers have created the modern-day robot version of the mythological centaur. An article in Reuters reported about Centauro, a quadrupedal robot that is intended to provide mechanical muscle to human relief workers during disasters and emergencies.

For a machine that stands close to five feet in height and weighs 200 pounds, Centauro is able to move with surprising grace. Its four legs have wheels attached to the ankles, allowing the robot to roll across smooth surfaces as easily as it can step across more rugged terrain features.

It has gripper hands for holding objects and can even use some tools intended for human use. In a video presentation, its arms can lift at least a dozen pounds of cargo with no problem. It has enough battery capacity to run for two and a half hours.

Similar to how the heads of humans host most of the sensory organs, Centauro’s head mounts various cameras, computer vision sensors, and a Lidar scanner. The information from this sensor suite is sent back to human operators, who control the robot from a safe distance.  (Related: Inspired by beavers: Researchers create an autonomous robot that can overcome uneven terrain.)

POWELL CRASHES TRUMP ECONOMIC BOOM! Raises Rates **AGAIN** on Trump — DOW DIVES 1,501 POINTS IN ONE WEEK! (Must Read)

President Trump enjoyed his 102nd stock market record last week.

Then Fed Chairman Jerome Powell raised the interests rates AGAIN under President Trump.
Now the Dow Jones is down 1500 1,743 1,501 points in the last week.

President Trump said the “Fed is crazy.”  He’s right.

Trump has been saying for the past year, with Stocks at all-time highs and unemployment at 50-year lows, the Fed’s interest rate increases show a far-left liberal bias.

Right after Barack Obama was elected President, on December 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve (The Fed) lowered the Fed Funds rate by an entire percent, from 1% down to 0% .

Washington (AFP) – Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday accused China of military aggression, commercial theft and rising human rights violations as he cast the Asian power as a villain bent on interfering in upcoming US elections.

In a blistering speech that expands on complaints aired by President Donald Trump at the United Nations last week, Pence accused China of waging an “unprecedented effort to influence American public opinion” ahead of critical

STUNNED Android users discover that Google allows mobile phone apps to read all your Gmail

After promising they would no longer spy on your emails for advertisement purposes, Google Inc. recently admitted to lawmakers that they continue to allow third party companies to scan and share data from private Gmail accounts.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a top Google official wrote to the U.S. Senate, confessing that Google still allows app developers and data companies’ unprecedented access to Gmail accounts. Millions of Gmail users are being are having their privacy violated, as app developers scan their emails, view private details, and use the data for target marketing.

Every time an Android user uses an app on their phone, they are forced to give up the privacy of their own Gmail account. Google is allowing mobile phone apps to scan all your emails to pickup keywords, private messages, addresses, times stamps, and intimate details. All this private information can be compiled, analyzed, and used to build a psychological profile on users for advertising purposes.

Android apps enjoy unprecedented access to your intimate emails

Google manages to disregard user privacy and get away with it because they hide behind the apps’ coercive consent form, which asks Android users if they are willing to let the app breach their privacy. These coercive consent forms (that pop up before an app can be used) do not fully disclose whether a user’s private data can be analyzed by computers, humans, or both. These “consent forms” pop up and block access to the app unless the user agrees that the application can “read, send, delete, and manage your email.” The form also asks if you grant it permission to manage “your contacts and calendars.”



How Trump’s son-in-law helped a $1.2 trillion trade zone stay intact

Sowing the seeds of suicide: Monsanto’s ownership of our food supply is destroying farming

There’s a reason Monsanto is one of the most hated companies in the world, and it goes far beyond the damage its products have done to the environment and human health. Indeed, Monsanto’s control over our food supply is destroying farming itself, and the repercussions for all of us could be devastating.

The biotech firm likes to think of itself as a pioneer, and its “contributions” to agriculture certainly are revolutionary – in all the wrong ways. Those who are familiar with their practices would laugh at their claim of “improving farmers’ lives” if it wasn’t so downright offensive. After all, pushing them to suicide isn’t an improvement by anyone’s definition of the word. Some farmers call them the “seed police,” while others prefer words like “Mafia” and “Gestapo.”

Document Expert: Multiple Discrepancies Discovered in Senator Feinstein’s Christine Ford Letter – Looks Like a Fraud  

Another Internet sleuth released a series of tweets that are damning to the letter provided by Senator Feinstein from Dr. Ford who accused Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct nearly 40 years ago.

The Internet is the place where individuals with different backgrounds and skill sets are able to combine their efforts to address the many lies in the MSM today.  This happens all the time and the MSM hates it when their lies are uncovered or questioned.

Yesterday Dr. Dannielle (Dossy) Blumenthal  released a series of tweets that dissect and refute the letter provided by Senator Feinstein from the accuser of Judge Kavanaugh.  Dr. Ford’s letter is full of flaws which lead one to realize something just doesn’t add up
