According to Anna-Lisa Paul, a professor from the University of Florida: “Plants provide both food source and the ability to recycle air and water.” If both edible and non-edible plants can be grown, they can potentially support space travel and enable the establishment of space colonies. That means, once scientists have figured out how plants adapt to harsh conditions in outer space, people could possibly be next.

In Touch magazine has become the first mainstream outlet to publish a sensational rumor that has electrified British high society for almost a year: that Prince William may have had an affair with his aristocratic neighbor Rose Hanbury, also known as the Marchioness of Cholmondeley (pronounced Chumley), while Kate Middleton was pregnant with their third child.
Iranian lawmakers opened a new session of the country’s Parliament on Tuesday with chants of “Death to America.” The taunt was meant as a response to the White House’s designation of Iran’s elite paramilitary Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization.
Last May, millions across the world tuned in to watch Queen Elizabeth‘s grandson Prince Harry tie the knot with his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle, with the media feting the couple as the epitome of glamour and royal modernity.
But less than a year later, the couple have found themselves on the receiving end

- How this drama turns out may mark the most significant test yet of the Trump administration’s credibility, following a highest-level chorus this week of President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, who all declared – in one way or another – that Russia had to get out of the country.
The first major showdown of our new era of great power competition, unfolding with accelerating speed over the past ten weeks in Venezuela, has entered a dangerous new phase. That is true, most of all, for the Venezuelan people, but also for Latin American democracies and for vital US interests in the Western Hemisphere.

Smugglers Using Kidnapped Children to Get Migrants Into US Illegally
April 4, 2019
Human traffickers are using “child recycling rings” to smuggle people across the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, according to U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.
Nielsen told Fox News that the practice essentially uses the kidnapping and passing around of children as a way to skirt U.S. immigration laws.
When an adult enters the country with a kidnapped child, it allows them to lie and claim they are a family, and use immigration laws that are lenient towards families to get released by authorities into the interior of the United States.
“The smugglers are more active than ever before at advertising how to come into this country with a child. We’ve broken up so-called ‘child recycling rings,’ if you can believe it, in the last couple months, which is where smugglers kidnap a child, they give it to an adult to cross the border, [and they] present themselves as a family.

In this Monday, April 1, 2019 photo, houses are covered by floodwaters in the town of Mamoulan, in the western province of Lorestan, Iran. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted late on Monday that U.S. sanctions imposed on Tehran by the Trump administration last year have hampered successful rescue efforts for flood-stricken areas of the country where 45 people have died so far. Iran has been facing major flooding for the past two weeks.
Iran’s foreign minister said U.S. sanctions imposed on Tehran by the Trump administration last year have hampered successful rescue efforts for flood-stricken areas of the country where at least 50 people have died so far.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted late Monday that America’s “maximum pressure” policy on Iran “is impeding aid efforts by #IranianRedCrescent to all communities devastated by unprecedented floods.”
The sanctions, he said, have prevented Tehran from getting badly needed equipment, including relief helicopters. “This isn’t just economic warfare; it’s economic TERRORISM,” he tweeted.
Iran has been facing major flooding for the past two weeks and on Monday, the death toll in the disaster rose to 50, according to an Associated Press count. The floods have struck hundreds of villages as well as towns and cities in the western half of the country, where in some places an emergency situation has been declared.

Robert Mueller distracted the Left for two years, holding out an imaginary pot of gold that never materialized
04/01/2019 / By Lance D Johnson
Leftists recently discovered what was at the other end of Robert Mueller’s rainbow. There was nothing. There was no pot of political gold to cash in on. There was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Donald J. Trump won the 2016 election, fair and square. The Left’s attempt to overthrow a democratically-elected President failed.
During the Left’s quest for political gold, they abandoned policy and reacted in knee-jerk fashion to everything Trump accomplished or said. As the Mueller rainbow disappears and the sun comes out, Leftists are left rubbing their eyes in disappointment and disbelief.
With the 2020 election coming around, the myriad of Democratic candidates have nothing of sustenance to campaign on, just identity politics. They’ve already proven they are the party of whiners and complainers. They proved they can point their finger and conjure up conspiracies. They made their case that they are the party of impractical delusions, not practical solutions. Robert Mueller was to be their political savior, the one who brought charges against Donald Trump and removed him from office. Robert Mueller was going to be the one who validated the Left’s political wet dreams. The Left put all their hope in this Russia collusion hoax, and now that the verdict is in, their voices only echo of hysteria and dishonesty.
If the Left really cared about collusion and corruption…
The left never cared about collusion or else they would have bemoaned the fact that the Clinton Foundation was a pay-for-play revolving door allowing foreign oligarchs to take advantage of the American government. If the Left cared about collusion, then they would denounce the Clintons for selling uranium to Russia and enriching other countries at the expense of the American people. If the Left cared about the abuse of power, then they would call for an investigation into the illegal spying of the Trump campaign, carried out by the Obama Administration. If the Left cared about election fraud, then they would call for the indictments of the Democratic Party leaders, who rigged the Democratic primary to put Hillary Clinton in command.

Guaido’s Chief Of Staff Detained By Venezuelan Intelligence In Pre-Dawn Raid
Two days after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido’s “government-in-waiting” forcibly took possession of three diplomatic facilities in the United States with the blessing of Washington, and following what many observers speculate are a series of US aggressive maneuvers paving the way for military intervention, Maduro’s security forces have begun arresting members of Guaido’s staff.
According to Reuters Venezuelan intelligence agents have arrested and detained Guaido’s own chief of staff, Roberto Marrero, as well as opposition legislator Sergio Vergara.

Guaido’s press team confirmed their detentions by security forces in what’s been described as a pre-dawn raid on their Caracas residences on Thursday. And in confirmation Guaido tweeted an “Alert” — saying the two men are “currently being held hostage” since 2:24 am by the SEBIN, or the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service.

5G looks like it’s the next best thing in tech, but it’s really a Trojan horse for harming humanity
03/06/2019 / By Ethan Huff
Many so-called “experts” are claiming that it’ll be a huge step forward for innovation in everything from manufacturing and transportation, to medicine and beyond. But in reality, 5G technology represents an existential threat to humanity – a “phony war” on the people who inhabit this planet we call Earth, and all in the name of “progress.”

In 1984, Rabbi Meir Kahane, the founding leader of the openly racist Kach party, managed to enter the Knesset aftersecuring some 26,000 votes. Despite his rising political profile, however, the far-right rabbi was not welcomed with open arms in the Israeli parliament – whenever he spoke, all the other 119 members of the Knesset (MKs) would walk out.
MKs were so disturbed by Kahane’s presence in the parliament that in August 1985 they even passed a revision to the Electoral Law which banned parties “inciting racism” – including Kach – from participating in future elections.
The problem was that this amendment also disqualified parties which opposed the existence of the Israeli state as a Jewish state. The second anti-racist law in 1986 was even worse. It exempted discrimination on the grounds of religion resulting in Kahane voting for it and the left in the Knesset voting against it!
However, the MKs’ vocal opposition to Kach had nothing to do with the racist ideology that was guiding the party. They were simply concerned about the damage Kach’s success could inflict on Israel’s image on the international arena– before the Supreme Court’s election ban, polls were predicting that the party could gain up to 12 seats in the 1988 elections.
Nevertheless, even if it was mostly for cosmetic reasons, back then, overt racism was still unacceptable in Israeli politics.
However, much has changed in the last 35 years.
Today, heirs of Kahane are being welcomed in by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. What was trefa (forbidden) yesterday, has become kosher today.

MEXICO CITY — Mexican officials are carrying out the Trump administration’s immigration agenda across broad stretches of the border, undercutting the Mexican government’s promises to defend migrants and support their search for a better life.
The Mexican authorities are blocking groups of migrants at border towns, refusing to allow them onto international bridges to apply for asylum in the United States, intercepting unaccompanied minors before they can reach American soil, and helping to manage lists of asylum seekers on behalf of the American authorities to limit the number of people crossing the border.
Trump Lost Nothing in Hanoi
When Donald J. Trump took office in January 2017, the outgoing Obama Administration national security team cautioned Trump’s transition team that North Korea was a significant nuclear threat. Obama White House officials explained how North Korea’s leaders had built up their nascent nuclear arsenal. Since at least 2013, the Obama Administration knew about the rising threat of a potentially nuclear-armed North Korea and did nothing.
It was not a matter of ignorance; it was a matter of indifference on the part of former President Barack Obama and his national security team. Obama—the man who the media claimed was the smartest of all of America’s presidents—likely had no idea how to mitigate the North Korean threat and therefore didn’t even try.
