10 Offbeat Stories You Might Have Missed This Week (12/8/18)

It is Saturday, which means it is time to do a quick review of the most notable stories that occurred over the last few days.

This week is a cornucopia of singular tales. They include the AI aboard the ISS, the fake first lady, the ancient plague, and the cowbell court case.

10Don’t Be So Mean, Please

The International Space Station (ISS) saw the addition of a new member—the Crew Interactive MObile CompanioN (CIMON). It is an AI which takes the form of a floating plastic ball with a video screen face and digital voice.

CIMON was built by Airbus and uses a modified version of IBM’s Watson artificial intelligence. According to the IT company, “Project Spaceball,” as it was initially called, has “the language skills of C-3PO, the conversation abilities of Marvin, . . . the cuteness of WALL-E, and the technical know-how of HAL 9000 . . . without the evil part.”

In the future, CIMON’s role aboard the ISS will be two-fold: to help astronauts with tasks and to act as a companion. For now, it was only involved in a small test run during the 57th mission aboard the station and it went about as eerie as movies taught us to expect.

German astronaut Alexander Gerst started up the AI with the command “Wake up, Cimon,” to which the floating ball cheerily inquired how it could help. At first, things went smoothly. The two chatted for a bit. CIMON recognized Gerst’s face, helped him with an experiment, and even played some Kraftwerk.

The situation became a little awkward when the astronaut told CIMON to stop the music. The AI appeared to have misunderstood the command, and it kept talking about music.

After repeated requests from Gerst to stop, CIMON pleaded with the astronaut to “be nice, please,” also asking “don’t you like it here with me?” The AI then changed the subject, saying that Gerst was probably hungry because it could hear his stomach roaring.[1]

9Too Much Cowbell?

There is a fiery debate going on in the tiny German town of Holzkirchen—does it have too much cowbell? A couple has sued a local farmer and the council because the farmer’s cows graze near their property and the nonstop clanging of the animals’ cowbells has caused the couple sleeplessness and depression.

The unnamed couple argues that the cowbells are too loud. Furthermore, the cows produce a lot of manure, which brings with it foul odors and lots of insects. Finally, they believe that forcing cows to wear loud bells in the flat, open countryside is not only unnecessary but amounts to animal cruelty. Modern alternatives such as GPS trackers are available.

The pro-cowbell camp argues that the trackers are too expensive and experimental. Furthermore, the cowbells are traditional and part of the local agriculture.

The original lawsuit was launched by the husband. However, the court ruled against the couple in 2017 and that decision is currently being appealed. Now the wife has filed a second lawsuit against dairy farmer Regina Killer which is expected to be heard in Munich’s regional court in January.[2]

8Age Is Just A Number

Last month, we talked about the strange legal case of 69-year-old Emile Ratelband who petitioned the Dutch court in Arnhem to officially lower his age by 20 years. The court ruled against him on Monday, writing that allowing his request would invalidate rights and obligations based on age.

The sexagenarian believed that his age was denying him opportunities in work and love. He was particularly annoyed by the lack of responses on Tinder. He felt much younger than he actually was. Ratelband compared his situation to that of transgender people who successfully had their genders changed in the eyes of the law.

The court said in a statement that Ratelband is free to act as young as he feels. Granting his request, however, would erase 20 years of records which would come with numerous legal and societal implications.[3] Moreover, the court didn’t think the 69-year-old adequately proved that he was the victim of age discrimination and, even if he was, there were alternative solutions to changing his date of birth.

Ratelband was actually pleased with the result, saying that the rejection provided him with different angles he can use on appeal.

A young boy managed to overturn the 100-year-old ban on snowball fights in Severance, Colorado.

The law is believed to have gone into effect when the town was incorporated in 1920. It prohibits the throwing of stones and other projectiles at people or property. On a school trip with his third-grade class to town hall, nine-year-old Dane Best learned that this included snowballs. Mayor Don McLeod challenged the children to change the law if they had a problem with it, and to his surprise, Dane took him up on it.[4]

This Monday, there was a Severance Town Council meeting and Dane was there with letters and signatures in support of snowball fights. He presented his case, and the council members unanimously approved a measure to legalize the throwing of snowballs within the town limits. The mayor then presented Dane with the first legal snowball in the town’s history.

The young man already has set his next challenge. Dane plans to tackle a law that only recognizes cats and dogs as pets and limits three per household. He’s doing it on behalf of his apparently illegal guinea pig.

6The Indus Valley Toothbrush Holder

Back in 2013, Karl Martin from Derbyshire, England, found a ceramic pot at a car boot sale (English flea market). He bought it and another pot for £4 and then used it as a toothbrush holder. Now he has found out that it was a genuine 4,000-year-old antique jar made by the Indus Valley Civilization.

Martin works as an appraiser for Hansons Auctioneers. Recently, he was helping a friend unload some objects destined for the auction block when he spotted a piece of pottery that looked familiar. It had the same kind of antelope patterns as his toothbrush holder. That’s when Martin decided to bring his pot from home to an expert. Auctioneer James Brenchley identified it as an Indus Valley artifact that was roughly 4,000 years old.[5]

How exactly an antique like that ended up at a car boot sale in South Derbyshire we’ll probably never know. Martin put it up for sale at Hansons’ November antiquities auction where it went for £80.

RUMOR: The FBI Whistleblower Raid Was a Setup of Mueller

By Kevin Jackson
When I heard of the FBI raid of whistleblower of The Clinton Foundation, I wondered what this raid could possibly be about.

I wrote this of the raid,

But the conspiracy is far worse, and will ultimately end up on the desk of Obama.

“The bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One,” the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF, noting that he considered the FBI’s raid to be an “outrageous disregard” of whistleblower protections.

Sixteen agents arrived at the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, a former FBI contractor, on the morning of Nov. 19 and raided his Union Bridge, Maryland, home, Socarras told TheDCNF.

The raid was permitted by a court order signed on Nov. 15 by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the U.S. District Court for Baltimore and obtained by TheDCNF.

A special agent from the FBI’s Baltimore division, who led the raid, charged that Cain possessed stolen federal property and demanded entry to his private residence, Socarras told TheDCNF.

“On Nov. 19, the FBI conducted court authorized law enforcement activity in the Union Bridge, Maryland area,” bureau spokesman Dave Fitz told TheDCNF. “At this time, we have no further comment.”
 Admittedly, I’m curious as to why the FBI raided the home of a man who was cooperating with Congress?

In the past when the leaks occurred on Trump, I commented that Donald Trump is too smart to allow these leaks to occur without a plan.

Not long after, Trump began jettisoning staffers. He dumped Reince Priebus’ former Number Two. Then shortly thereafter, he dumped Priebus.

I’m not privy to the inner workings of the White House, but I do know how you find rats. And I suggested then, that Trump’s moles were finding the GOP and Obama holdover rats.

Then I got this email:

Trump’s Master Spooks

Behind the scenes, Trump’s spooks are destroying the enemies of the Republic, using astonishing tradecraft. Their assault has been devastating, as REX explains.

by Rex

Mon, December 3, 2018

The corrupt government officials who instructed FBI agents to raid the home of US government whistleblower Dennis Cain on 18 November 2018, must have been confident.

Someone had leaked them valuable information. The ID & address of a key whistleblower and potential star witness, who was storing original evidence devastating to the Clintons, as well as Bob Mueller, in his home.

The officials had one objective in mind – get the original evidence produced by the whistleblower.

All of it.

And destroy it.

The logic is clear – if the original evidence is destroyed, the prosecution case against the Clintons and their associates is weakened.

Without the original evidence, all the prosecution would have is what they were given – a memory stick of scans and copies.

It would allow the Clintons to challenge the evidence provided, as well as produce (fake) evidence of their own.

So no doubt the crooks behind the raid were jubilant as they learned Cain’s house was being raided.

One problem : the crooks were being played.

In my view, what will be revealed is that Cain wasn’t the real whistleblower.

He was a decoy.

The real whistleblower, who has ALL the materials in hard copy – and is...

Birthright Citizenship as a Magnet

Mother gives birth after entering illegally, and the family is then released

In November, I wrote a Backgrounder on birthright citizenship in response to President Trump's then-recent statement that he was considering issuing an executive order to end the practice. A birth to one of the migrants associated with the immigrant caravan currently in Tijuana underscores the magnet effect that this interpretation of the 14th Amendment has on aliens who are considering entering the United States illegally.

As the Associated Press reported on December 6:
A Honduran woman affiliated with a caravan of Central American migrants gave birth on U.S. soil shortly after entering the country illegally amid growing frustration about a bottleneck to claim asylum at official border crossings.

Border Patrol agents arrested the woman Nov. 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico, Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday. She was arrested with her 20-year-old husband and 2-year-old son.

The woman, who was eight months pregnant, was taken to a hospital after complaining about abdominal [pain] the day after her arrest, Customs and Border Protection said.

Thousands of migrants in the Central American caravan are waiting processing in Tijuana, Mexico, notwithstanding the fact that they do not appear to be happy about having to wait, as alluded to in a December 3 New York Times article.

That New York Times piece details the efforts, many of which were described as unsuccessful, of other migrants to enter the United States illegally, however. It continues:
Some have jumped into the cold, rough ocean waters and tried to swim around the fence to the United States, only to be plucked from the surf by the authorities.

This stretch of the border is one of the most heavily guarded and scrutinized. But for some, that is part of the calculation: Having grown impatient as they wait for their asylum appointments, they hope to speed things up by getting caught and petitioning for asylum on the spot, a provision in the law that Mr. Trump is trying to end.

Plainly, it is in the interest of the U.S. government, our immigration system, and the migrants themselves to discourage such efforts at illegal entry. The eight-month-pregnant woman in the Associated Press article, identified as 19-year-old Maryury Serrano Hernandez, for example, obviously should have been discouraged from undertaking the strenuous effort to enter the United States without authorization at a heavily patrolled portion of the border. That she gave birth before reaching full term suggests the arduous nature of such action.

So why did she do it? That article gives the answer, quoting Hernandez as stating that "giving birth in the U.S. was a 'big reward' for the family's grueling journey." Unfortunately, she was correct. As the outlet noted: "The family was released from custody on Sunday, pending the outcomes of their immigration cases." They are planning on applying for asylum, and have family in Columbus, Ohio.

And they will likely be here for a long time. In a separate, August 2018 article, the Associated Press noted: "ICE's average length of stay in immigration detention is about 40 days, while the average length of time for immigrants not in custody to have immigrant cases on court dockets is more than eight years." Now that Ms. Hernandez and her family have an equity in the United States (their newborn child), their stay is likely to be...

Failing Weekly Standard Writes Puff Piece in Support of Far Leftist Cory Booker Presidency

A #NeverTrump magazine that will reportedly be going out of business in mere weeks appears to be mailing it in completely after writing a glowing piece in support of presidential bid for Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

“Social media are Booker’s bread and butter. They are good advertising, and they are free. But Booker senses that he’s not so much giving something as getting it. Without fail, he asks the first name of everyone he meets and is almost certain to repeat it back at least once. Booker is fond of tweeting out Dale Carnegie quotes and makes good on one of the guru of self-improvement’s famous rules: ‘Remember that a person’s name is, to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language,’” Weekly Standard said in a piece fawning over Booker.

The puff piece included a long anecdote about Booker giving McDonald’s french fries to a homeless man, which is supposed to make you believe that Booker is a good guy, another about how Booker’s parents fought against housing discrimination in the 1960’s for the same reason, and a weird blurb about how Booker is a “hugger,” which is supposed to make him relatable.

The piece even lauded despicable actions Booker’s actions during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

“But any name he has made for himself has been in opposing President Trump’s judicial nominations,” the magazine said approvingly. “His performance on the Judiciary Committee during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings drew headlines and boosted his progressive cred. But his acts of “resistance” also had their comic moments. He said he risked expulsion from the Senate for releasing classified documents that he dramatically said showed Kavanaugh as an advocate of racial profiling. He called it his ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.'”

Finally, the Weekly Standard gave Booker a pass for groping a woman during his teens – to which he admitted in an op-ed written in Stanford University’s newspaper – which came to light during the hearings.

Booker blamed the culture of “toxic masculinity” that he grew up in for the incident. The piece finishes by giving its readers a glimpse at Booker’s campaign strategy. The rhetoric is just a bit further left-leaning than the GOP establishment fruitcakes that Weekly Standard supported, even after the American people decided that they wanted someone tough like...

Election Fraud Doesn’t Exist Until Liberals Want It to Exist

Something amazing is happening: Liberals have suddenly begun to believe in voter fraud. Almost overnight, years of constant denial and disbelief have melted away amid allegations that a congressional election in North Carolina may have been tainted by absentee ballot fraud.

In North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, Republican Mark Harris beat his Democratic opponent, Dan McCready, by 905 votes out of almost 300,000 cast. McCready conceded defeat, but irregularities in absentee balloting in Bladen and Robeson counties prompted the North Carolina State Board of Elections to refuse to certify the results and instead move to hold an evidentiary hearing to examine evidence of fraud.

Thus far, the investigation is centering on a political operative named Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr., who apparently worked for Harris’ campaign. According to witness statements and affidavits, Dowless paid people to collect voters’ absentee ballot requests and the ballots themselves—a practice known as “vote harvesting,” which is illegal in the state. Dowless and others are also being accused of having tampered with those absentee ballots.

If true, this would hardly be the first time that fraudsters have targeted absentee ballots. In fact, absentee voting is particularly vulnerable to fraud. The Heritage Foundations’ election fraud database tracks a growing list of proven examples of election misconduct across the country—1,177 cases so far—and many of its entries involve efforts to manipulate, forge, or change absentee ballots and coerce or intimidate absentee voters.

The allegations in North Carolina’s 9th District are serious and should not be dismissed out of hand. Elections are the core of our representative democracy, and they depend on public trust in the fairness of the process and the validity of the results.

When credible evidence of fraud comes to light, it must be investigated and, if the evidence warrants, prosecuted. To do otherwise invites future malfeasance.

When this or any type of election fraud occurs, it shakes the confidence of all voters, both liberals and conservatives. That makes guaranteeing election integrity a solemn, nonpartisan task.

Everyday Americans seem to agree. For example, according to one recent Pew Research Center poll, 76 percent of Americans think that voter identification requirements should be mandatory—a remarkably high figure in...

DEEP STATE DOJ SET UP TRUMP! Arrested Chinese Business Leader During Trump-Xi Dinner — DID NOT TELL ADMINISTRATION (VIDEO)

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce released a statement on Wednesday morning on the Trump Xi dinner meeting in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

The Chinese Government released a very positive statement on the meeting.

But then news broke on Wednesday that Canadian authorities arrested the chief financial officer of Huawei at the request of the United States. Meng Wanzhou is the CfO of Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, the largest communications company in the world.

The US Department of Justice had Wangzhou arrested while President Trump and his top administration officials were meeting with Chinese officials after the G-20 meetings in Buenos Aires.

On Thursday Peter Navarro, assistant to the president on trade policy, spoke with Trish Regan on her new show Primetime.
Navarro told Trish Regan that President Trump and his administration WERE NOT NOTIFIED that the DOJ was arresting Chinese business leader

The DOJ arrested the Chines business leader knowing it could disrupt President Trump’s trade talks.

If the Trump-Xi talks fail it could cost the American economy jobs and trillions in trade dollars.

It could be a catastrophe!

The Deep State DOJ does not care.
It appears their only mission since 2016 is to destroy President Trump.


BREAKING Obama Caught In Major Criminal Activity With Soros

Former President Obama has been caught red handed in a serious crime.

The 44th president illegally funneled taxpayer funds to help illegal immigrants in violation of the law, a press release from the Immigration Reform Law Institute announced.

An investigation by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has revealed that the Obama-era U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), in apparent violation of federal immigration law, awarded multiple high-value contracts, worth over $310 million, to a single nonprofit group in 2015 and 2016.

All of these contracts were awarded for the purpose of providing legal representation to unaccompanied alien children (UACs). UACs are defined as aliens under 18 years of age who have no lawful immigration status in the United States and, supposedly, no parent or legal guardian in the United States available to provide care and physical custody. A significant percentage of UACs (the vast majority of whom are from Central America) have ties to MS-13 or other gangs.

The funds went to the Vera Institute of Justice (Vera), a nonprofit group that provides immigrants with access to legal services. (One of Vera’s former directors, Christopher Stone, also served as president of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations from 2012-2017.) The contracts require Vera to provide “direct legal representation” to UACs, recruit and train pro bono attorneys, and facilitate continued legal representation once a UAC is released to a sponsor – frequently an illegal alien. So far, the federal grants have paid for legal representation of UACs in removal proceedings and removal appeals throughout the nation.

Section 292 of The Immigration and Nationality Act specifically forbids such action.

Sec. 292. [8 U.S.C. 1362] In any removal proceedings before an immigration judge and in any appeal proceedings before the Attorney General from any such removal proceedings, the person concerned shall have the privilege of being represented (at no expense to the Government) by such counsel, authorized to practice in such proceedings, as he shall choose.

The Washington Examiner reported.
The Obama administration approved $310 million in free legal advice to young illegal immigrants despite federal law barring charging taxpayers for helping immigrants avoid deportation, according to a new report.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that the funding was provided to a top legal defense group to help unaccompanied alien children under the age of 18 land with a sponsor in the U.S.

In 2015 and 2016, contracts reviewed by IRLI showed that several worth $310 million went to one nonprofit legal group, the Vera Institute of Justice. A top director has ties to...
