Hillary Probably Got 800k Votes from Illegals: Political Scientist

Amid widespread media denials of any evidence of widespread voter fraud, a political scientist’s study suggests that over 800,000 non-citizens voted for Hillary Clinton in November’s presidential election.

In seeking to debunk President Donald Trump’s claims that he lost the popular vote due to voter fraud, Old Dominion’s Jesse Richman and his colleagues undertook a study based on university polling, and concluded that while voter fraud is widespread, the numbers do not suggest that Trump had more votes from U.S. citizens.

Clinton won the popular vote by over 3 million.

Washington Supreme Court Says Christians Can Be Forced to Participate in Gay Weddings

Olympia, Washington—The Washington Supreme Court has ruled that Christians can be compelled to participate in gay weddings. Baronelle Stutzman, a florist who declined to participate in a wedding involving long-time homosexual clients, has lost in Washington and will now take her case to the nation’s Supreme Court.

After being forced to pay all attorney’s fees as well as penalties, Stutzman’s life savings are jeopardy.

In a joint statement, the homosexual couple said the ruling affirmed that they were “on the right side of the law and the right side of history,” adding they were glad they stood up for their rights.

Mutterings: What rights, exactly? The right to force others to approve of your actions and legitimate them? And why do people think it’s a court’s job to determine who is “on the right side of history”?

2015 U.S. Strikes in Syria Used Depleted Uranium

Syria—A U.S. Central Command spokesman has confirmed that the military used depleted uranium weapons in strikes against ISIS in Syria in 2015, despite earlier vows not to use the ammunition. Although studies on depleted uranium are not complete, it is thought to cause cancer and an array of health and environmental problems, and is considered officially by the EPA as a radiation health hazard inside the body. It is not, however, banned by U.N. conventions. Its density helps ammunition to penetrate armored vehicles such as tanks, but the 2015 instances are puzzling because they primarily targeted unarmored oil tankers.

Flynn Out Over Russia Talks, Deception

Washington—Upon the request of President Donald Trump, national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday. The essential dismissal comes in the wake of revelations that he allegedly discussed economic sanctions with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December, prior to confirmation to his post. The White House Trump lost trust in Flynn because he denied to Vice President Mike Pence that sanctions or policy matters had been discussed with the ambassador.
