*HELL ON EARTH – Temperatures in U.S. Cities to Break Heat Index by 2050, Study Warns:

Hundreds of U.S. cities could see an entire month each year with heat-index temperatures soaring above 100 degrees by 2050 if global warming isn’t curtailed, a terrifying new study has predicted. “Our analysis shows a hotter future that’s hard to imagine today,” said study co-author Kristina Dahl, climate scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists. “Nearly everywhere, people will experience more days of dangerous heat in the next few decades.” The heat index is what the temperature feels like to the human body when humidity is combined with the air temperature.

The study predicts the number of days each year when it feels like it’s more than 100 degrees will more than double nationally, with conditions becoming so extreme on some days that they’d break the current upper limit of the heat index. “We have little to no experience with ‘off-the-charts’ heat in the U.S.,” said co-author Erika Spanger-Siegfried, adding they “could be deadly.”

 *Kanye West Designing ‘Star Wars’-Themed ‘Living Spaces for
the Homeless’:

Rapper Kanye West is working on a project to design and build “living spaces for the homeless” based on the “Star Wars” movie franchise. West’s vision is to create low-income housing modeled after the fictional planet of “Tatooine,” West revealed at one point in a lengthy interview with Forbes: “Speaking of aliens, if you really want to see how West’s creative process works, then a visit to the Star Wars planet of Tatooine is necessary. Inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home, West has been working with a team to design prefabricated structures that sport the same austere aesthetic, with the goal of deploying them as low-income housing units. Just after midnight he ushers me into his Lamborghini for an impromptu visit, barreling back down the road with Bach blasting on the sound system. After about 15 minutes, we arrive at a bungalow in the woods.”

West told Forbes Senior Editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg the units “could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top” and gave him a glimpse of what the housing will look like: “There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships. They’re the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one.”

 *‘NOT A TYPO’: Democrat Poll Shows What Voters Think Of Omar, Ocasio-Cortez:

A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020. “Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view,” Axios reported. “Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.”

“Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%,” Axios added, whereas “capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.” The firm that conducted the poll gave the results to Axios on the condition that it not be named because it works “with all parts of the party.” A top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional races said: “If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk. [S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races. Socialism is toxic to these voters.”

*Scalise: ‘No Moderates Left; It’s Literally Liberals Versus Socialists and the Socialists Are Winning’:

“It’s ugly and getting uglier, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Thursday, commenting on the row between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).” There are no moderates left in the Democrat Party, and liberal Pelosi is losing the battle with socialists like Ocasio-Cortez, Scalise told Fox News: “It’s ugly and getting uglier. You are seeing this fight between the far-left socialists and liberals. It used to be, in the Democrat Party, a fight between liberals and moderates. There are no moderates left. “It’s, literally, liberals versus socialists and the socialists are winning. “But, for Nancy Pelosi to think that she can silence AOC and these other far-left socialists just shows that she’s out of touch with what’s happening in her own conference. And that, I think, is shocking a lot of people, because she used to control with an iron fist.”

Scalise said he thinks Pelosi is so out of touch that she has no idea how powerful far-left socialists have become in he party: “Yea, I think she is completely misreading just how much of a grip these far-left socialist have on her conference. “Look, AOC is threatening some of the liberals that she is going to run somebody in their primary if they vote for mainstream policies. I mean a lot of them ran saying they were going to be pro-life, pro-gun and anti-Pelosi. They’re voting to raise taxes. They’re voting to take away your gun rights and they’re voting down the line with Nancy Pelosi. “And, yet, that’s not enough for AOC and the socialists. They’re having this internal struggle. It’s starting to play out publicly. But, it just shows you, you know: they ran and Pelosi took the gavel trying to think that she could appeal to Middle America. And, Middle America is looking at this going, ‘Wait a minute, we are not a socialist nation. We are still a center right nation.'”

 *1 Federal Department Now Spending $100 Billion Per Month:

For the first time in our nation’s history, there is now a federal department spending an average of more than $100 billion per month. No, it is not the Department of Defense, which is charged with the core federal responsibility of defending us from foreign enemies. It is the Department of Health and Human Services, which, if Democratic Sen. Bernie Sandersof Vermont has his way, will run the “Medicare for All” program. As it now stands, HHS runs Medicare for many and Medicaid for more.

“In 2019, the program will cover an estimated 61 million persons (52 million aged and 9 million disabled),” the Congressional Research Service said of Medicare in a report published in May. “Medicaid is a means-tested entitlement program that finances the delivery of primary and acute medical services as well as long-term services and supports (LTSS) to an estimated 75 million people at a cost to states and the federal government of $616 billion in FY2018,” CRS said in a report published in June. “CBO also estimates that federal Medicare spending (after deduction of beneficiary premiums and other offsetting receipts) will be about $637 billion in 2019, accounting for about 14% of total federal spending and 3% of GDP,” said CRS.

 *Sugar in Fruit Juice May Raise Risk of Cancer, Study Finds:

Drinking large amounts of fruit juice may raise your risk of cancer, according to a big study which has found a link between the regular consumption of all kinds of sugary drinks and the likelihood of developing the disease. The study, carried out in France, is the first substantial piece of research to find a specific association between sugar and cancer. Sugary drinks such as colas, lemonade and energy drinks have been linked to obesity, which is a cause of cancer, but the French researchers suggest there could also be other reasons sugar could trigger it.

The study, published in the BMJ, finds the association with cancer is just as strong with fruit juices as it is with colas. “When the group of sugary drinks was split into 100% fruit juices and other sugary drinks, the consumption of both beverage types was associated with a higher risk of overall cancer,” it says.

Cutting down on the amount of sugary drinks we all consume, together with sugar taxes and restrictions on marketing, might help reduce the cancer burden, say the authors. That does not mean nobody should ever drink them. “As usual with nutrition, the idea is not to avoid foods, just to balance the intake,” said Dr Mathilde Touvier, who led the research, from Inserm, the French national institute of health and medical research.

 *Ariana Grande: Seeing Drag Queens Dressed Up as Me Is ‘Better than Winning a Grammy’:

Seeing a man in drag dressed as her is “better than winning a Grammy,” pop music star Ariana Grande said in an interview published Tuesday. “That’s, like, the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” the singer said in an interview with Vogue magazine. Having drag queens portray her establishes her as an iconic “character” in pop culture, Grande said: To those troubled by her image, Grande has a silencing reply: She just likes it. “I like having my funny character that I play,” she explains, “that feels like this exaggerated version of myself. It protects me. But also I love disrupting it for the sake of my fans and making clear that I’m a person—because that’s something I enjoy fighting for. I can’t help disrupt it. I’m incredibly impulsive and passionate and emotional and just reckless. “The music is very personal and very real, but yes, if you can be me for Halloween, if drag queens can dress up as me, then I’m a character. Go to your local drag bar, and you’ll see it. That’s, like, the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It’s better than winning a Grammy.”

The article quotes music Producer Pharrell Williamsdescribing Grande as “an R-rated version of a Disneycharacter.” Asked if she ever feels uncomfortable singing songs with sexually-charged lyrics to “an audience of thousands of nine-year-old girls,” Grande promised the parents of those girls that their kids will have sex: I ask her if it ever feels uncomfortable to gaze out at an audience of thousands of nine-year-old girls while singing a song about having so much coitus that it’s hard to walk straight. “They’re for sure gonna have it. I promise. I promise that your kid’s gonna have sex. So if she asks you what the song’s about, talk about it.”

 *National Park Service Manager Bought $2,297 in Items With Government Charge Card—Then Pawned Them:

National Park Service Facility Manager used a government charge card to buy approximately $2,297 in merchandise that he then pawned, according to a summary of the case released by the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of the Interior. The government employee was sentenced to one day in jail. “The OIG investigated allegations that a National Park Service (NPS) Facility Manager stole NPS funds, abused his purchase card authority, misused a Government Owned Vehicle (GOV), and concealed criminal convictions to gain NPS employment,” said the summary.

“We confirmed the allegations,” said the IG’s summary. “The employee spent approximately $2,975 on his Government purchase card to purchase items he later pawned,” said the summary, which was posted on June 18. “We also learned that the employee leased roll-away dumpsters with Federal funds, partially to discard personal items,” it said. “The employee also regularly used a GOV for personal errands,” it said. “Finally, we found that prior to his employment, the employee falsified his application to the NPS by failing to disclose three criminal convictions. “The employee pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor theft in county court, was sentenced to 1 day in jail, and was ordered to pay full restitution,” it said. “He resigned from the NPS in lieu of termination.”

 *California Becomes First State to Give Health Care to Some Undocumented Migrants:

California has become the first state to offer taxpayer-supported health care to some undocumented migrants after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law last week. The new laws, which have previously been described as “crazy” by Donald Trump, will allow around 90,000 low-income adults below the age of 25 to access the state’s Medicaid program, even if they’re undocumented. The new rules are predicted to cost taxpayers around $98 million. Newsom said he plans to further expand coverage to more adults in the years to come.

An Interview with Nicole Brandon, Talented Actress and Motivational Speaker

Q: Thank you so much for speaking to us today, Nicole. So where were you born?
A: Atlantic City, New Jersey

Q: What was your early life like?
A: I had the most unusual childhood of anybody I know. The day I was born, my grandfather had had a heart attack in Philadelphia, so my parents raced from the Atlantic Cityhospital to the hospital in Philadelphia. My family thought that if my grandfather knew that he had a grandchild, he would live, and he did until I was 12, so I guess I saved a life my very first day. I was only about two hours old and I was already in rescue mode.

Q: How do you feel that unusual story relates to how your life operates today?
A: I believe that I was born to do this work, and that’s just the way my life will always operate. I was molded and etched to help humanity.

Q: So, you sense that you’ve always had an idea of what your “mission” is. What would you say that is?
A: I am here as a bridge between the physical and spiritual world. I have the uncanny ability to understand how to be unlimited in a physical body. So that’s why I’m an actress, a trapeze artist, a contortionist, and a martial arts master. I have a physical body that has no limitations whatsoever, and I understand how to be here in absolute freedom and unlimited power, and I want to use that to help people, all people how to live in their bodies and to be free. Free of uncomfortability, free of pain, free of sadness, free of heartache, free of fear, free of constrictions, barriers, walls or hurdles and to trust their body and to trust themselves to reach, and to have it all.

*Democrat Congresswoman Secretly Sending Staff To Mexico To Coach Migrants How To Beat System, Report Says:

Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar (TX) is secretly sending staff to Mexico to find and coach migrants who are trying to enter the United States and is instructing them how to “exploit a loophole” to game the asylum process, multiple U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials allege. The Washington Examiner reports that, according to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several CBP agents, Escobar’s staff is trying to find migrants that have been returned from El Paso, Texas to Mexico “under the ‘remain in Mexico’ policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them return to the U.S. “A senior union official shared evidence supporting their claims with the Examiner and said, “What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol.” Under the “remain in Mexico” policy, “anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim.”

Officials claim that Escobar’s aides, who have sought interviews with thousands of migrants who were sent back to Mexico, are escorting the migrants back to the port of entry and are lying to CBP officials, telling them the migrants don’t speak Spanish despite the fact that they spoke Spanish to the officials at an earlier date.” What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues,” a union official said. “They went through and interviewed everybody, cherry-picked them, brought them back, and now are using them as tag lines. They’re going over there and manufacturing a lot of these issues.”

Mark H. Metcalf, a former federal immigration judge, told the Examiner that a criminal case could be brought against Escobar if she is found to be involved in the alleged scheme, which amounts to fraud and making false statements to U.S. officials. The Examiner added that a DHS official noted the obvious, that Democrats “are furious” that these migrants are not allowed to “await their court dates in the U.S., where they have the opportunity to disappear and slip into the interior never to be seen again.” CNN’s Fareed Zakaria ran a segment on Sunday about the problems with the asylum system in the U.S., saying that President Donald Trump is right about the situation and that fraud is rampant in the system and that the system is being abused and not used for the purpose that it was created for.

 *Switzerland Makes It Illegal To Own Just One Guinea Pig Because They Get Lonely:

Denying your pet the chance to make friends with members of its own species could be considered an act of cruelty—at least in Switzerland. According to Techly, an animal rights law introduced there in 2008 makes it illegal to own just one guinea pig at a time. It isn’t uncommon for a citizen of Switzerland to own a guinea pig. While many people may consider cats and dogs to be normal pets, the Swiss see guinea pigs the same way.

These animals are often treated as a member of the family. In fact, the country has taken legal measures to ensure that these pets are given the same rights and protections as individuals. The Swiss government wants its people to live happy and healthy lives. This goal is extended to animals who live within the vicinity of these people. Although some foreigners may find this hard to believe, guinea pigs are provided with similar protection under the law in Switzerland. Nobody will be able to look at these furry creatures the same again. The new law states that owners cannot own only one guinea pig because this lonely number makes this pet more prone to feelings of isolation and loneliness.

 *Seattle Children’s Hospital Closes Operating Rooms After Patient Dies From Mold:

 Aspergillus mold in the Seattle Children’s Hospital caused the death of one patient and infected five others, according to a new report by The Seattle Times. This dangerous mold has caused the hospital to close its main operating rooms, postponing 1,000 surgeries. “The six patients who developed Aspergillus infections were at higher risk of infection due to the types of procedures they had,” Alyse Bernal, public relations manager for the hospital, said. “We are deeply saddened that one of these patients died.”

The hospital reportedly received a letter from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services saying it hadn’t complied with regulations. As of now, Bernal says the hospital doesn’t know when its operating rooms will reopen.

*YIKES – California Democrats Propose Bill to Allow Illegal Immigrants to Hold Party Leadership Positions:

Democratic lawmakers in California have introduced a bill that will allow illegal immigrants to hold leadership positions within the Democrat Party on the state and local level. Current state law limits noncitizen participation in party politics, but the bill, SB 288, would change that, letting noncitizens, including illegal immigrants like Dreamers, serve as state convention delegates and county committee leaders within the Democratic Party, which will allow them to be involved with party platform and other issues. “We need to continue to send a very, very loud message that we are … going to embrace and uplift and support all American immigrant neighbors,” Sen. Scott Weiner (D-San Francisco), one of the lawmakers who introduced the bill, said.

“As our immigrant communities face vicious attacks from this President and his administration, California must embrace, lift up, and empower immigrant voices and leaders. Immigrants contribute to our economy, culture, and civic life. They’re already leaders in our communities and should have a seat at the table. The Democratic Party will continue to lead as the party that embraces all communities, and this legislative fix will help keep us on track,” Weiner wrote in a press release last week. Shawn Steel, the Republican National Committeemanfor California, called the move “abject pandering and arrogance.”

“This is what happens when you have too much power… it’s just progressives trying to out-progressive each other,” he told Fox News. Democrats control both houses of the California Legislature, and the governor of California – Gavin Newsome– is a Democrat, so the bill’s passage is assured.

Shãn Sutherland, Wealth Advisor at Simple Impact LLC, Explains When People Should Take Social Security

A first world problem is the critical decision that asks at which age Americans should take government income benefits. Oftentimes, secure income retirement planning may seem overwhelming or even futile.

Although people are eligible to begin taking Social Security at age 62, it assures a reduced benefit— about 25% less in monthly income than waiting until your full retirement age of 66. However, delay receiving benefits until age 70, you could top your payout up to 32% more. Thankfully, Shãn Sutherland, wealth advisor at Simple Impact LLC, has a lot of advice to share in this department.

“According to the social security administration, 71% of Americans elect to receive their Social Security benefits too early (Source SSA Annual statistical supplement, 2017 released March 2018),” explains Sutherland, “in pre-retirement income planning, we show our clients custom reports that explain how waiting benefits them in tens of thousands, and often hundreds of thousands of dollars more, when estimating future lifetime income over years or decades.”

“Women often disclose with me they took social security at 62 as means to leave an uncomfortable work position or supplement their earned income to cover basic living needs,” continues Sutherland, “yes, you can continue to work and receive a reduced Social Security retirement benefit. You’ll need a minimum of 10 years of work that pays into social security taxes (40 credit rule). If you can increase your yearly wages or salary, it is possible to receive increased benefits once you attain full retirement age since your benefit is calculated on your highest earning working years.”
