Ivy League Study- Illegal Population is 22 Million, Double Estb. Estimate:
The population of illegal migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption, rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states.
The higher illegal population estimate helps explain why Americans’ wages and salaries have risen so little amid apparently record-low unemployment rates, and it also undercuts companies’ loud demands for yet more immigration of foreign workers, consumers, and renters.
The population estimate also raises the political and economic stakes of any amnesty legislation. In 2014, public opposition blocked the bipartisan, establishment, media-boosted Gang of Eight bill, which claimed to offer an amnesty to just 11 million migrants. Currently, advocates for a ‘Dream Act’ amnesty claim it will provide green cards to roughly 3 million sons and daughters of illegal immigrants.
*Chicago police solved fewer than one in six homicides in the first half of 2018:
Chicago police solved fewer than one in six homicides committed in the city in the first half of 2018, continuing a troubling decline in the number of perpetrators being brought to justice in one of the nation’s most violent cities, data obtained by USA TODAY
Chicago’s homicide clearance rate – the percentage of cases in which police arrest or identify a suspect – fell from 17.1 in 2017 to 15.4 during the first six months of 2018, the data shows. If that rate holds through the end of the year, it would be the sixth consecutive annual decline.
Police in the nation’s third-largest city are having even less success solving nonfatal shootings, according to the data obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Police cleared 50 of 900 nonfatal shooting incidents in the first half of 2018, a rate of 5.6 percent.
*Nearly half in top 5 U.S. cities don’t speak English at home,
record 67 million:
Nearly half of the residents in the nation’s five biggest cities do not speak English at home, choosing instead their native language, according to the latest Census Bureau
data that details the impact of a decade of soft immigration policies.
Overall, a record 67 million do not speak English at home, said the bureau. That is nearly double in 27 years.
In its just-released analysis of the Census data, As a share of the population, 21.8 percent of U.S. residents speak a foreign language at home — roughly double the 11 percent in 1980.
In America’s five largest cities, 48 percent of residents now speak a language other than English at home. In New York City and Houston it is 49 percent; in Los Angeles it is 59 percent; in Chicago it is 36 percent; and in Phoenix it is 38 percent.”
The findings come as more and more reports emerge about both Americans and foreigners getting into heated debates over speaking English.
In one case in New York last May, a man threatened to call immigration police if employees and customers didn’t stop speaking English in a restaurant. Last week, in Florida, a Taco Bell patron was turned away because a worker said nobody spoke English and couldn’t take the order.
*Survey- American Approval of Pope Francis Down from 66% to 53%:
‘ approval among Americans has dropped considerably in the past month, according to a Gallup
poll conducted Sept. 4-12.
Gallup said to respondents via telephone, “We’d like to get your overall opinion of some people in the news. As I read each name, please say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of that person – or if you have never heard of them. How about – Pope Francis?”
The results showed that American approval of the pope has decreased from 66% to 53%, a 13-point drop, and that 27% of Americans now hold an unfavorable view of the pope. Only 12% of respondents had no opinion, according to the survey.
*Ticketmaster Has Secretly Been Cheating You With Its Own Scalpers:
Music fans’ ire toward Ticketmaster
for expensive concert tickets may be somewhat justified, according to a fiery investigation by CBC News
and the Toronto Star
detailing a secret scalping scheme run by the ticket sales company itself. The two outlets sent journalists undercover as scalpers to a live entertainment convention this summer, where Ticketmaster reportedly pitched them on its underground professional resale program, through which it takes a cut of profits.
Ticketmaster, which is owned by live entertainment juggernaut Live Nation, enlists resellers to grab batches of tickets from its site and then flip them for higher prices on a Ticketmaster-owned, invite-only platform called TradeDesk (touted by the company as “The most powerful ticket sales tool. Ever”), according to the report. Ticketmaster gets extra fees from the pricier resale tickets on top of its fees from selling the original ticket.
CBC and Toronto Star journalists were told that despite the existence of a Ticketmaster “buyer abuse” division that looks for suspicious online activity in ticket sales, the company turns a blind eye to its TradeDesk users. A sales representative told one of the undercover journalists that there are brokers with “literally a couple of hundred accounts” on TradeDesk, and that it’s “not something that we look at or report.”

Transgender Kids in the UK
The number of children in the United Kingdom (UK) seeking to change gender has skyrocketed since 2009/10, and the UK government wants to find out why.
The UK’s Minister for Women and Equalities has called for a study of the root causes of the surge in transgender children,The Telegraph reports:
“Penny Mordaunt, the Minister for Women and Equalities, wants to understand the reasons behind a 4,400 per cent increase in girls being referred for transitioning treatment in the past decade.”
From 2009/10 to 2017/18:
1. The number of girls referred to doctors for gender treatment rose 4,415%, from 40 in 2009/10 to 1,806 in 2017/18
2. The number of boys referred increased 1,151%, from 57 in 2009/10 to 713 in 2017/18
3. In 2017, 800 children were given drugs to stall the onset of puberty, “including some aged 10, with some also given hormones to start the process of changing sex.”
4. In 2017, 45 children age six or under were referred to theUK’s National Health Service (NHS) for treatment, with at least one being only four years old.
5. Number of Girls Jumps 4,415%, Number of Boys Rises 1,151%
The UK’s Government Equalities Office suspects the influence of social media and teaching of transgender philosophy by the educational system have fueled the striking increase in transgender children.
A medical survey found that professional soccer players sustained approximately 1.5 injuries per player per year.

*EXAMINER-COMMENTARY by Patrick Kilpatrick:
(Acclaimed Action-Hero Star, Author & Director)
Any wonder why Fan Bingbing, China’s highest profile actress, vanished after allegations of tax avoidance? No surprise anyone can be ‘disappeared’ by a system rooted in control, no rule of law, slavery, and subversion of freedom.
Precisely why I refused when the Chinese government offered an entertainment teaching gig and film finance. Creators should turn their backs on loot from a spreading Orwellian nightmare. No amount of ‘Silk Roads‘ is worth perpetrating this storm – particularly as our President moves to arrest Beijing’s trade imbalance, South China Sea encroachment and intellectual theft.
Hollywood facilitates China’s totalitarianism – black ballingRichard Gere for support of Tibet, to appeasing miserly intro of films into Chinese markets, to cash for projects towing Party line. Apple, Google made hellish marriage on products and the internet at China’s bullying. Those involved will find such actions destined to deliver us to the jaws of the anaconda.

Howie harkened back to legends like Richard Pryor — who were revered for pushing the envelope — but said anyone who tries that today runs the risk of destroying their whole career. It’s gotten so bad, Howie says he’s actually afraid to crack jokes in public.
