Supreme Court Approves Major Elements of Trump’s Travel Ban But Creates Back Door Too

The Supreme Court removed the injunctions by lower courts that previously blocked President Trump’s travel ban while awaiting the hearing in October.  They approved Trump’s ban against entry of foreign nationals from countries with high instances of terrorism for a 90-day period. However, they also exempted anyone that has a ‘relationship’ with refugees already in the US.  The Court also agreed to Trump’s order to reduce the number of refugees 110,000 to 50,000. [It remains to be seen how loosely the administration defines the word ‘relationship’ and how lax it is in demanding proof of that relationship. This feature could be interpreted in such a way that almost anyone could enter merely by claiming to have a personal or business relationship with a previous refugee – with no proof required. Voters beware.] –GEG

Creepy Technology Sends Data Through Your Bones Via Electrical Charges

Piezoelectricity is the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials such as crystals and bones, when they are forced to bend or vibrate.  AT&T plans to roll out “bio-acoustic data transfer” to send digital data through people’s bones and neurons by way of electrical vibrations.  Data can be exchanged through a handshake.  Electro-magnetic frequencies can affect gene expression and physical processes. They can trigger moods and thoughts. – GEG

Los Angeles: Proof That Leftist Protesters Are Uninformed and Confused over the Issues They Support

Los Angeles Airport: A group of protesters are interviewed and reveal their ignorance about the immigration ban, Sharia law, and other issues related to their demonstration.  [It would be funny if it were not so deadly serious in its consequences. These pathetic souls have been programmed like robots and, until they become de-programmed by truth, they will serve as cannon fodder for America’s enemies.]


Seattle’s $15 Minimum Wage Law Caused Workers’ Wages to Drop

Seattle passed a law setting the minimum wage at $15 per hour, which is a 3% increase. This caused many employers to cut the hours of their unskilled workers by 9% in order to stay in business. [9% rather than 3% is because, when the minimum wage goes up, it forces other wages up also to keep skilled workers at a higher pay scale than minimum. There is a ripple effect all the way up to middle management. To cover this extra cost, employers were compelled to cut back the working hours of unskilled workers by 9%. Working fewer hours caused a lower income of minimum-wage workers by $125 per month. Political intervention in the free market always hurts lower-income workers.] –GEG
