Plot to replace Europeans with refugees exposed

Millions of migrants mostly from Africa and the Middle East have swarmed Europe in the last three years – the result of what has been explained by world leaders as a war-driven “refugee” crisis. Yet, a United Nations document, prepared in the year 2000 and rediscovered by WND, reveals the U.N. was already promoting the notion of “replacement migration” in Europe with the support of open-borders non-governmental organizations and “progressive” politicians. The document – “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Aging Populations?” – details the plunging birthrates across Europe and identifies a solution: mass immigration.

Government “Flabbergasted” After Elon Musk’s Most Bizarre Claim Yet | Zero Hedge

Elon Musk set the interwebs ablaze this morning when he tweeted out that he somehow got every major city on the eastern seaboard to “verbally approve” a “NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop” to be built by his Boring Company. “Just received verbal govt approval for The Boring Company to build an underground NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop. NY-DC in 29 mins.”   “City center to city center in each case, with up to a dozen or more entry/exit elevators in each city.”   “Still a lot of work needed to receive formal approval, but am optimistic that will occur rapidly.”   “If you want this to happen fast, please let your local & federal elected representatives know. Makes a big difference if they hear from you.”

FTC probing allegations of Amazon’s deceptive discounting

“The conclusions the Consumer Watchdog group reached are flat out wrong,” Amazon said. “We validate the reference prices provided by manufacturers, vendors and sellers against actual prices recently found across Amazon and other retailers.” The review of Amazon’s discount pricing is an indication the FTC is taking a serious look at the e-commerce company’s agreement to buy Whole Foods, a deal that critics say could give Amazon an unfair advantage.

Ben Carson’s quiet life in a chaotic Cabinet

Surrounded by dated wood paneling and stacks of newspapers, Ben Carson lives out most of his days at the Department of Housing and Urban Development quietly. His 10th-floor office in a nondescript government building in Southwest Washington could not feel further removed from the cable news green rooms and early-state coffee shops that turned the former neurosurgeon into a household name during the 2016 Republican primary. But in the nearly five months since Carson took the helm of HUD, he has faded into the background of an administration otherwise defined by intrigue and outrage. One of President Trump’s highest-profile Cabinet nominees, Carson has maintained one of the lowest profiles of any Cabinet secretary. And that’s the way he likes it, Carson says.

FBI turns over 7,000 documents from Weiner laptop in Clinton-tied case | Fox News

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News after the hearing that they expect to begin receiving those documents in three months, once the State Department determines whether the Weiner documents are government or personal records. The State Department was ordered in November to turn over 500 pages of Clinton-related documents a month to Judicial Watch. But Fitton is not satisfied with the speed of the process, especially now that another 7,000 documents are being added to the pile. “This pushes this out until 2020 and beyond,”
