Who cares if this is totally illegal, immoral, and violates all international treaties that previous Presidents signed with multiple other nations.
45 wants space soldiers and space weapons, so By God he is going to order it done. Dam the treaties and international agreements!

H. Clinton said; “Jesus Christ said, ‘Suffer the children unto me,’ not ‘let the children suffer.'”
Meanwhile, Bush, who almost never speaks out on political issues, broke partisan ranks in a Washington Post op-ed.
“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” she wrote.

The fake arguments against 100% renewable energy : RenewEconomy
The latest salvo has been fired by two UNSW academics, Mark Diesendorf and Ben Elliston – the authors of a series of landmark studies since 2012 on how Australia could shift to 100 per cent renewables, and do so cost effectively.
That theme is no longer considered to be outlandish by most in the energy sector. The network lobby and the CSIRO painted their own scenario for 100 per cent renewables in Australia in 2016, and utilities like Transgrid say it is feasible and affordable. Even AEMO said it could be done.
Their latest paper – “The feasibility of 100% renewable electricity systems: A response to critics”, published in Science Direct – seeks to expose and dismiss the “myths” it says are used by scholarly journals, popular articles, media, websites, blogs and statements by politicians to attack wind and solar.

Ann Coulter calls immigrant children ‘child actors’ | TheHill
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter called children crying at the border after being separated from parents “child actors” during an appearance Sunday on Fox News.
Coulter also said President Trump should not fall for the “child actors” as he faces pressure to end his zero-tolerance policy at the border, which has resulted in parents being separated from their children so that they face immediate deportation.

Be Happy to Run Around the Block with Me | Heavenletters
Beloved, your Godwriting comes as it comes, and so does everyone’s Godwriting come as it comes. No one is to praise himself nor to smote himself, nor is anyone to critique another’s Godwriting. Godwriting comes in all shapes and sizes. Remember, the Godwriting you receive is from God. In this sense, all Godwriting is hands-off to what you may make of it. If I were to give a solid instruction on how to Godwrite, I would say: “Hey, welcome the Godwriting I give to you.”
Your very first sample of Godwriting doesn’t have to be a marvel, for then you might set up high expectations when, as a God receiver, you are meant to be an impartial receiver. Your purpose isn’t to favor one Godwriting over another. Certainly it’s not your business to qualify or disqualify what you hear Me say.
Yes, you will have your favorites. No one will disbar you from Godwriting because you do. No one says that the Godwriting that comes through you has to be the best Godwriting ever. Be a happy receiver of whatever you hear Me say. Godwriting isn’t your talent show. Love what you love, and be open to what I give you.
I am not a racehorse that you egg on to beat previous records. Simply be happy to run around the block with Me. The process of Godwriting is for you to hear Me – plain and simple. You are not looking for fame or fortune. The personal gain that is yours is to hear Me. No pedigree has to come with it.
Godwriting is simply what it is. Godwriting isn’t a process whereby you show off for ego’s pleasure. Be at peace with Godwriting. Write for the joy of hearing what you hear. Beloved, you are here right now to serve Me. You aren’t here right now to look for the pride of the litter. Be My pride and joy and no less nor more.

Whatever you feel led to do by the HEART, without hurting or killing others is ‘Godwriting’ on your heart. Follow your HEART, your BLISS and do what is your heart’s passion. Let it FLOW.

THREE YEARS OF civil war in Yemen have created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with the United Nations estimating that 22 million people — three-quarters of the country’s population — urgently need humanitarian aid.
But aid groups have seen their worst fears realized this week, as U.S.-backed forces organized by the United Arab Emirates launched an assault on the rebel-held port of Hodeidah — the entry point for 70 to 80 percent of the food, medicine, and aid supplies entering Yemen.
