1…………> DACA Battle: Up To SCOTUS


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday, August 6, 2018

 Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued the following statement on Friday’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) order in the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia:

“We strongly disagree with the district court’s decision on Friday in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) case. The executive branch’s authority to merely rescind a policy, established only by a letter from the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is created. The Department of Justice will take every lawful measure to vindicate the Department of Homeland Security’s legal rescission of DACA. “The last administration violated its duty to enforce our immigration laws by directing and implementing a categorical, multipronged non-enforcement immigration policy for a massive group of illegal aliens. This wrongful action left DACA open to the same legal challenges that effectively invalidated another program they established—Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). DAPA’s implementation was blocked by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and never entered into effect. These two policies declared by officials of the previous administration—by policy letters only—had been considered by Congress and rejected.”

“The Trump Administration’s action to withdraw the policy letters simply reestablished the legal policies consistent with the law. Not only did the Trump Administration have the authority to revoke this guidance letter, but it also had a duty to do so. As former President Obama previously said, the changes they attempted to effect through this policy letter can only be lawfully achieved by congressional action. The judicial branch has no power to eviscerate the lawful directives of Congress—nor to enjoin the executive branch from enforcing such mandates.”

“We have recently witnessed many decisions in which courts have improperly used judicial power to steer, enjoin, modify and right executive policy. This ignores the wisdom of our Founders and transfers policy making questions from the constitutionally empowered and politically accountable branches to the judicial branch. It also improperly undermines this Administration’s ability to protect our nation, its borders, and its citizens. The Trump Administration and this Department of Justice will continue to aggressively defend the executive branch’s lawful authority and duty to ensure a lawful system of immigration for our country.”



2…………> Dodecahedrons: Roman’s Rangefinders?


Did the ancient Romans use a twelve-sided brass object with protruding openings named dodecahedron as a range finder for their legions? When a British man named Brian Campbell from Romford, East London dug out a strangely shaped object smaller than a tennis ball in his garden, he thought of it as a measuring tool.

But later on, he found out that it was one 100’s Roman dodecahedrons unearthed in the last 300 years.





3…………> The Antifa Faces: Berkely Police


The Berkeley Police Department, supported by officers from around the region, used de-escalation strategies throughout the day: separation of rival groups, confiscating weapons and arresting those carrying guns in prohibited areas. There have now been 20 arrests, most of them for possession of banned weapons in parks, and on streets and sidewalks. Dozens of weapons were confiscated. Even though there were many hundreds of people, many of whom came armed and hostile, there were no significant injuries to anyone in public or City staff. The lack of injuries is fortunate given that extremists threw explosives at Berkeley Police and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office mutual aid officers. Berkeley Fire treated and released three members of the public for minor injuries. This work would not have been possible without the significant mutual aid support of the following agencies: Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol and the Oakland, Hayward, San Leandro and Emeryville police departments. There was significant damage to City property: An extremist element amongst a large group marched westbound by the Berkeley Way parking lot, smashing 21 city vehicles and slashing City vehicle tires, and setting one City vehicle on fire. Three minor dumpster fires were extinguished. All roads are now open, and regular police operations have resumed. Our investigation into any crimes will continue. We encourage members of the public to send us videos or photos, which you can upload at The following is a partial list of arrestees. Some arrestees names have not yet been confirmed. 





4…………> Mack The Knife: Big White Shark


A marine biologist on a research trip of big white sharks along the coast of Massachusetts got his wish and more when the “object of his affection” bolted out of the water, big white teeth flashing right under his feet.





5…………> “No Trade With Iran”: President Trump


Mr.Trump has called the Iran deal promulgated by our 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama “one-sided,” “disastrous” and the “worst I’ve ever seen,” a “deal” that resulted in granting $150 billion credits and a planeload of US cash to the biggest supporter of terrorism in the world.

The President believes renewed economic pressure will force Iran to agree to a new deal, and has issued a strong warning to anyone trading with Iran, following his re-imposition of sanctions on the country.

“Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States,” the president tweeted. Some re-imposed sanctions took effect overnight, and tougher ones relating to oil exports will begin in November. Iran’s president, not surprisingly said the measures were “psychological warfare” which aimed to “sow division among Iranians.
