June 22 - Three Arab migrants viciously beat a disabled
man in Sweden while lecturing him that he was a racist in
another sterling example of how the Scandinavian country is
enjoying its cultural enrichment. The three “refugees”
attempted to steal a homeless man’s wallet in the Gävle train
station during the incident, which took place last month.
Another man on crutches as a result of suffering brain damage
from an accident then tried to come to the aid of the homeless
man, but the migrants turned their sights on him.
June 20 - A new study reveals that up to 5.7 million
illegal aliens were likely to have voted in the 2008 election,
meaning Donald Trump was almost certainly right when he said
this was the reason for him losing the popular vote to Hillary
Clinton in the 2016 race. After Trump made the claim that
votes by millions of illegal aliens cost him the popular vote,
he was lambasted by the press, who blamed an
Infowars story published on November 14th in which we
reported that around 3 million illegals voted.
June 21 - Washington, D.C. will soon offer
gender-neutral licenses and IDs. Instead of only offering an
'M' for male and 'F' for female on licenses, there will be an
'X' option for those who identify as transgender. "The 'X'
gender marker allows for individuals to have more privacy
around their gender," explained Arli Christian, a spokesman
for the National Center for Transgender Equality. "Any
individual who chooses to have additional privacy can request
an 'X'," she added. Washington, D.C. is...
June 22 - Cornerstone Christian Academy in Alberta,
Canada, is being told to stop teaching scriptures that may be
considered "offensive." Battle River School Division (BRSD)
chair, Lauri Skori, told Cornerstone's chair, Deanna Margel,
that "any scripture that could be considered offensive to
particular individuals should not be read or studied in
school." Skori said it would be inappropriate for the school
to share "any teachings that denigrate or vilify someone's
June 22 - Target's gender neutral bathroom policy is
back in the headlines after a man entered the women's dressing
room in one store to record video of a woman getting
undressed. A woman identified only as Leslie claims she was
sexually violated by a man in the women's dressing room at a
Target store in Woodlands, Texas. She says a man came into the
room and began videoing her as she tried on different bathing
suits. "In the mirror I saw the reflection of the cell phone,"
June 21 - U.S. coffee giant Starbucks has announced
plans to hire 2,500 asylum seekers across Europe in the next
five years as part of a worldwide initiative. The coffee
company announced earlier this year they would be seeking to
fill around 10,000 positions over the next five years with
asylum seekers in the 75 countries in which they operate. New
reports claim that around 2,500 of those asylum seekers hires
will take place in Europe, Neue Presse
reports. The initiative, which was...
June 21 - Anthem announced on Wednesday that it will
reduce its individual insurance plans in Wisconsin and
Indiana, citing its inability to cope with the cost of sicker
Americans that sign up for health insurance on the Obamacare
market. Anthem will sell health plans in one county in
Wisconsin and five counties in Indiana. However, Americans who
purchase those plans cannot use Obamacare’s subsidies to lower
their costs. President Donald Trump has
threatened in the past to remove...
June 21 - The car batteries used in a Tesla generate as
much CO2 as driving a gasoline-powered car for eight years.
And that’s before they even come off the production line. This
news, from a
study by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute,
will no doubt delight all those U.S. taxpayers who have been
forking out billions of dollars to prop up Tesla’s share price
having been assured by their government that subsidizing
overpriced electric cars represents a vital step towards
“combatting climate change.
June 21 - A pit bull burst through a backyard fence,
made its way into a nearby minivan and mauled two young
children as they sat helplessly strapped into their car seats,
police said. The mother of the 2-year-old girl and the
5-year-old boy managed to pry the animal off them Monday but
not before it seriously mangled her son's face, witnesses
said. Tom Grab told WPMT-TV that he was able to pull the
66-pound dog off the boy, but it wriggled free and continued
the bloody assault.
June 20 - Ford Motor Co. is moving production of its
Focus model to China after production at its Michigan plant
ends in 2019. The move, which Ford estimates will save it $500
million in production costs for the car, comes as the company
has become a target of President Trump, who is pressuring
manufacturers to keep jobs in the United States. Ford
initially planned to move production of the Focus to Mexico,
but it is now scrapping that plan in favor of production in
China, according to a report in Bloomberg.
June 22 - European Union leaders meeting in Brussels
will try to gloss over their feud about who takes in refugees,
a change of tactic that some diplomats have linked to
Germany's election in September. Eastern states such as Poland
and Hungary have refused to take in asylum-seekers to ease the
burden on Greece and Italy, where most of the 1.7 million
refugees and migrants entering the EU since 2014 have landed
by boat after fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and
June 21 - The Trump administration has embraced
technology developed and pioneered under the past two
presidents when it comes to catching illegal aliens in the
The Atlantic highlights several programs and tools
immigration authorities have at their disposal and are now
using under President Donald Trump. High-tech fingerprint
scanners, cell-site simulators used to pinpoint the location
of cell phones, and even drones that scan the faces of people

June 22 - Former Vice President Joe Biden, warning of
transgender Americans "under attack" in Republican-led states,
on Wednesday challenged the nation's LGBT community to push
back against President Donald Trump's administration. "Hold
President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend,"
Biden declared at a private LGBT gala hosted by the Democrat
National Committee in New York. "Just because you don't have
Barack and me in the White House doesn't mean...
June 22 - A recent insurance study links increased car
crash claims to legalized recreational marijuana. The Highway
Loss Data Institute, a leading insurance research group, said
in study results released Thursday that collision claims in
Colorado, Washington, and Oregon went up 2.7 percent in the
years since legal recreational marijuana sales began when
compared with surrounding states. Legal recreational pot sales
in Colorado began in January 2014, followed six months later
June 8 - The BBC has been caught-red-handed censoring
part of an interview where an eyewitness says Muslim attackers
shouted “Allah” before they stabbed a woman in London. Just
like CNN got caught staging a Muslim anti-terror protest, this
is yet more evidence of the establishment trying to frame the
narrative that terrorism has ‘nothing to do with Islam’.
June 7 - There comes a time when it becomes necessary
to draw a line in the sand. When the early settlers came to
America, they were desperate to find a place where they could
live in freedom. And our Founding Fathers worked very hard to
draft a Constitution that would guarantee that future
generations of Americans would live in a nation where the
freedom and liberty of the people were maximized.
Unfortunately, the way of life that our founders sought to
establish is slowly...
June 8 - Muslim student athletes at one U.S. high
school no longer have to be slowed down by worries that their
headscarves might fall off. Deering High School in Portland,
Maine, is providing sport hijabs with the goal of making
Muslim girls comfortable - and boosting their participation in
sports. The lightweight scarves stay put and are less bulky
than other hijabs, garments that cover the hair and are worn
by many Muslim women to express their faith. "We're more
confident on the field," said...
June 7 - The popular fast food chain McDonald's is
jumping on the homosexual pride train, offering up homosexual
friendly fries to their customers. In celebration of
Washington D.C.'s LGBTQ community, certain McDonald's
locations in the D.C. area will serve large orders of French
fries in rainbow print in their fry boxes. The colorful fry
edition will be available between June 9th and June 11th, but
only at three specific McDonald's restaurants located along
the Capital Pride Alliance's parade route.
June 6 - A crackdown on illegal aliens under President
Donald Trump has driven some poor people to take a drastic
step: opt out of federal food assistance because they are
fearful of deportation, activists and immigrants say. People
who are not legal residents of the U.S. are not eligible to
take part in what is formally known as the Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program. But many poor families include a
mix of non-legal residents and legal ones, such as children
who have citizenship...
June 6 - Students at “Freedom University,” an
unofficial college for illegal aliens, have developed a
mobile alert service to warn of the presence of immigration
enforcement agents on campus. The creators of the
service—called “Melt Ice” in reference to the U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement agency—have already established a
presence at several universities and colleges in the Atlanta
area, including the Georgia Institute of Technology,
CBS 46 reports. The student “investigators” at each...
June 6 - Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield announced
Tuesday it will pull out of the Ohio exchange next year,
leaving about 20 counties in the state without Affordable Care
Act marketplace plans. Anthem hasn't exited the 13 other
states where it provides coverage and has
already filed with regulators to continue coverage in
Virginia, Maine and Connecticut. "A stable insurance market is
dependent on products that create value for consumers through
the broad spreading of risk and a known set...
June 7 - Modern humans evolved much earlier than
previously thought, researchers reported Wednesday. New
discoveries at a rich site in Morocco show modern humans were
hunting and probably cooking game animals 300,000 years ago —
100,000 years earlier than scientists have believed until now.
The site, near Morocco’s coast and the city of Marrakech, has
always yielded interesting human remains, but they’d been
dated to around 40,000 years ago. New discoveries and new
May 30 - A California farmer set out to plow his field;
now he faces a $2.8 million fine. John Duarte, the owner of
Duarte Nursery near Modesto, Calif., bought 450 acres,
planning to grow wheat. But it turns out he can't do what he
wants, whenever he wants to, with his own land. When he set
out to plow the land he was issued orders to stop work by the
Army Corps of Engineers and the California Central Valley
Regional Water Quality Control Board, according to
May 31 - A Government building in Westminster is
hosting the “biggest ever in Europe” pro-Palestinian event,
organized by a group allegedly linked to anti-Semites,
Islamists, and terror groups.
Palestine Expo 2017 is due to take place just yards away
from Parliament in the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, which is
owned by the Government and operated by an agency of the
Department for Communities and Local Government. The building
was reportedly one of those considered as a venue to host
May 30 - The federal constitution requires that school
officials submit to the demands of a teenage girl who wants to
change her sex to become a boy, says a three-judge panel of
the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. The judges
say that Kenosha Unified School District violated federal law
and the Constitution because the teenager’s “gender identity”
as a “transgender boy” is more important than the popular
laws, civic customs and scientific consensus which recognize
May 30 - Just six weeks after the battles of Lexington
and Concord, Harvard President Samuel Langdon, May 31, 1775,
spoke to the Massachusetts Provincial Congress. Samuel
Langdon’s address was titled “Government Corrupted By Vice”:
“They … attempted, by a sudden march of a body of troops in
the night, to seize and destroy one of our magazines, formed
by the people merely for their own security. … The fire began
first on the side of the king’s troops. … But for what?
May 30 - For the second time in a week, a prominent
Confederate statue in St. Louis has been vandalized with
anti-racism graffiti. The spray-painted messages appeared on
the monument in the city's
Forest Park on Tuesday morning. They read, "End Racism," "African-American
Lives Matter" and "Nat
Turner Lives". The statue has been the focus of similar
activism in the past. Two years ago, "African-American Lives
appeared on the monument with a big spray-painted 'X'.
May 29 - A new ad campaign for Heineken beer promotes
“a world without borders or barriers,” in another nod to the
vacuous virtue-signaling that is being embraced by many top
companies. Text has been added to cans of Heineken that
states, “Here’s To An Open World. To a world without borders
or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us
than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with
the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend
that you haven’t had a cold...
May 26 - As Barack Obama waxes eloquent about the
supposed negative impact of walls on humanity, crews have
completed the wall surrounding his Washington, DC home.
Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former
President Obama lectured the current administration about its
immigration policy Thursday. While not mentioning President
Trump by name, Obama made clear to whom he was leveling his
criticism. “In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate
ourselves,” Obama said.
May 31 - The worshipers waited four years and 39 public
hearings for the official denial: Muslims in their small New
Jersey town would not be allowed to build a mosque. The 2015
decision made by the planning board in Bernards Township,
N.J., a majority-white suburb of 26,000 people, came after
significant public opposition to the mosque that thrust the
community into the national spotlight and spurred religious
discrimination lawsuits from the Islamic Society of Basking
May 30 - A Hollywood man must serve 180 days in jail
for refusing to give up his iPhone password to police, a
Broward judge ruled Tuesday — the latest salvo in intensifying
legal battles over law-enforcement access to smart phones.
Christopher Wheeler, 41, was taken into custody in a Broward
Circuit Court, insisting he had already provided the pass code
to police investigating him for child abuse, although the
number did not work. “I swear, under oath, I’ve given them the
password,” a distraught Wheeler...
May 24 - The latest Muslim terrorist attack ripped
apart little girls at a concert in Manchester, England, on
Monday, killing 22. The death and body-part count is still
rising. This is not a game. When young British girls are the
targets of a suicide bombing, can we take a short break from
the posturing, political correctness and Russia conspiracy
theorizing? Won’t the hatred of Trump keep for a few weeks?
Channel-surfing on Monday night was like watching broadcasts
from different countries.
May 24 - Concealed carry permits rose 215 percent
between 2007 and 2015, and the murder rate dropped 14 percent
during that same time period. In other words, more guns being
carried for self-defense correlated with fewer murders. On May
Breitbart News reported that the demand for concealed
carry permits witnessed its greatest surge ever between May
2016 and May 2017.
Fox News referenced Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC)
data showing there were 14.5 million permit holders...
May 25 - The Labour mayor of Greater Manchester has
claimed the suicide bomber who killed 22 was not a Muslim,
insisting the “worst thing that can happen” is people blaming
Muslims. Andy Burnham, a former Labour frontbencher who was
elected mayor this month, insisted the attack, claimed by
Islamic State, had nothing to do with Islam. “The message that
I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority
of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim,” he
May 24 - Well over one-third of America’s adult college
students believe that campus “safe spaces” are “absolutely
necessary” to assist grown adults who are psychologically
traumatized by hearing opinions with which they disagree. The
data comes from a recent poll of 1,659 students currently
attending U.S. colleges and universities conducted by
student loan marketplace website.
According to the poll, 36 percent of American college
students agree with the proposition...
May 23 - A record-low percentage of U.S. adults believe
that God created humans in their present form, according to a
Gallup survey. Thirty-eight percent accept the strict
creationism view compared with 38 percent who believe man
developed with God's guidance and 19 percent think God had no
role in man's evolution, according to the
Gallup poll. It's the first time since 1982 -- when Gallup
asked the question with the same wording -- that belief in
God's direct creation of man is not...
May 24 - A Henry County commissioner requested a few
months ago that a local Civil War museum remove its
Confederate flags. But without that symbol, the Nash Farm
Battlefield and Museum announced that it can’t conduct its
mission properly and will close June 1. In a Facebook post,
the museum’s directors cited the request by District 2
Commissioner Dee Clemmons that all Confederate flags be
removed from the museum, in addition to the gift shop, “in an
effort not to offend anyone.”
May 25 - Sean Hannity says a media watchdog is guilty
of "liberal fascism" for targeting advertisers on his Fox News
Channel show, as one company announced Wednesday that it would
no longer hawk its wares there. The Chicago-based Cars.com
said that it had been "watching closely" and recently decided
to suspend its backing of Hannity. Hannity, the sole survivor
from Fox's once stable and powerful prime-time lineup, has
been a strong backer of President Donald Trump and believes...
May 25 - Sears Holdings Corp. reported its first
quarterly profit in nearly two years, as the retailer
benefited from the sale of its Craftsman brand and a program
to cut $1.25 billion in costs, amid doubts about its ability
to continue as a going concern. The
company's shares were up 17 percent at $8.74 in early
trading on Thursday. However, sales continued the years-long
decline, hurt by lower demand for groceries, apparel and home
appliances at the retailer's Sears and Kmart stores.
May 24 - The Obama administration knowingly let in at
least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S.
as illegal alien teenagers in 2014, a top senator said
Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens
were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country. Sen.
Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security
Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border
Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 people who
May 24 - Two white women have been forced to close
their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural
appropriation. Kali Wilgus and Liz 'LC' Connelly opened Kooks
Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto
Mexico, last December. For the first few months, the
weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit.
It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided
to profile the entrepreneurial duo. But that's when the
May 22 - Wi-Fi can pass through walls. This fact is
easy to take for granted, yet it's the reason we can surf the
web using a wireless router located in another room. But not
all of that microwave radiation makes it to (or from) our
phones, tablets, and laptops. Routers scatter and bounce their
signal off objects, illuminating our homes and offices like
invisible light bulbs. Now, German scientists have found a way
to exploit this property to take holograms, or 3D photographs,
of objects inside a room — from outside it.
May 6 - Veterans Memorial Park in tiny Belle Plaine,
Minn., is packed with remembrances for the town’s men and
women in uniform. Soon, it will get one more: A solemn black
cube holding an upturned helmet, its sides adorned with
upside-down pentagrams. The Satanic Temple announced Friday
that it had received approval to install the monument, which
is in production. Within a couple of months, it is expected to
take its place alongside a flag-lined walkway, a marble plaque
and a retired...
May 11 - Officials on Tuesday euthanized a pit bull mix
the day after the dog mauled and killed a 6-month-old girl,
CBS affiliate KLAS-TV reports. The Clark County Coroner's
Office identified the child as Kamiko Dao Tsuda-Saelee, who
died Monday. The dog was 9 years old, KLAS reports. Police say
the girl was playing in her walker near the dog when she was
attacked. The girl's mother tried to stop the attack Monday
afternoon, police officer Laura Meltzer said. The owner of the

May 10 - A six-year-old boy in San Diego was severely
injured when a drunk-driving illegal alien allegedly slammed
into the family’s car on their way home from the Disneyland
theme park, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The illegal
alien suspect, who attempted to flee the scene, had already
been deported fifteen times, according to
the Union-Tribune newspaper. Suspect Constantino
Banda-Acosta was deported back to his native Mexico the first
time in 2002 and re-entered and been deported...
May 11 - ABC has cancelled its Tim Allen-starring
sitcom Last Man Standing after six seasons, the network
confirmed Wednesday. ABC and production partner 20th Century
Fox TV had reportedly usually negotiated over licensing fees
for the comedy series before each season; this time,
according to Deadline, there was no negotiation, and the
network simply pulled the plug on the show. The sitcom starred
Allen as Mike Baxter, a marketing director for a sporting
goods store who happened...
May 11 - Last week, the Texas House approved a bill
that would require public school students to pass a U.S.
citizenship test as a high school graduation requirement. It
would also eliminate the state’s current U.S. history year-end
exam. Not everyone agrees this is such a great idea. The
House Bill 1776 proposes administering the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services test to Texas high
schoolers even though the tool is designed for prospective
U.S. citizens as part...
May 11 - Oregonians may soon be able to identify
themselves as neither male nor female as Oregon works toward
becoming the first U.S. state to allow a third gender option
on its drivers' licenses and state identification cards. Last
June, Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Amy Holmes Hehn
granted a request by Army veteran Jamie Shupe, who has been
transitioning since 2013, to change the retired sergeant's
gender from female to a third, nongender option. It was
believed to be the first decision...
May 11 - New Orleans Mayor
Mitch Landrieu on Thursday said workers removed a statue
of Confederate icon Jefferson Davis from Mid-City as part of a
"march to reconciliation". Landrieu said the city began
removing statues erected to honor the Confederacy in late
April. In December, the New Orleans City Council declared four
monuments nuisances and the Jefferson Davis statue
commemorating the former Confederate president is the second
to be removed. "This morning we continue our march...
May 5 - Few were surprised that the first words out of
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' mouth in his meeting with US
President Donald Trump were bold-faced lies. "Mr.
President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our
children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace", Abbas
claimed, as he and Trump tried to sleuth out what's holding up
Mideast peace. Abbas continued: "And we are endeavoring to
bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to
live like the other children in the world...
May 9 - Former President Barack Obama traveled to Italy
this week to make a speech on climate change at the “Seed &
Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in the city of
Milan. It seems like Obama has taken a page out of
Leonardo DiCaprio's book of “do as I say, not as I do” and
took a private jet to Milan. Not only that, he had a 14 car
convoy to get into the city, which also included protection
from above with a helicopter. It doesn't end there. According
The Daily Mail, 300 police officers were...
May 2 - If this is the budget deal we get when
Republicans control the House, the Senate and the presidency,
there’s no point in ever voting for a Republican again. Not
only is there no funding for a wall, but — thanks to the deft
negotiating skills of House Speaker Paul Ryan — the bill
actually prohibits money from being spent on a wall. At a CYA
press conference on Tuesday, Trump’s ridiculously chipper
budget director, Mick Mulvaney, described the bill’s
prohibition on building a wall...
May 2 - Jenny Craig can’t arrest you if you miscount
your calories, but the federal government could if a new
calorie-counting rule takes effect. The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration’s “Nutrition Labeling of Standard Menu Items in
Restaurants and Similar Retail Food Establishments” (79
FR 71155) rule was originally scheduled to take effect on
May 5. The FDA has now delayed the rule for a year. The

May 3 - Facebook CEO
Mark Zuckerberg said the social media giant will hire
3,000 employees to monitor what people stream through its Live
feature, through which some users have broadcast violent
incidents. "Over the last few weeks, we've seen people hurting
themselves and others on Facebook -- either live or in video
posted later. It's heartbreaking, and I've been reflecting on
how we can do better for our community," Zuckerberg
in a Facebook post. "If we're going to build a safe

Donald Trump on Thursday signed an executive order easing
the enforcement of rules prohibiting tax-exempt religious
institutions from involvement in politics. "We are giving our
churches their voices back," Trump said at the White House
Rose Garden flanked by religious leaders and White House
signed the order, called "Promoting Free Speech and
Religious Liberty," which promises to "protect and vigorously
promote religious liberty." The order also directs federal
May 2 - A woman mauled by her son's pit bull at their
Michigan home went to
dog out of its crate when it attacked her without
provocation, then turned its aggression on her boyfriend,
police said Tuesday. The woman and her boyfriend are improving
from bites to their arms and faces suffered in the Sunday
night attack. Roseville (Mich.) Police Chief James Berlin said
Tuesday that authorities are expecting to turn their

Office on Wednesday...
May 3 - Two Republicans are reportedly set to
reintroduce a bill capping pensions of former presidents if
they take outside income of $400,00 or more — a measure Barack
Obama vetoed and would, if passed, hurt his bottom line. "The
Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing," Utah GOP Rep.
Jason Chaffetz, who sponsored the 2016 bill in the House, told
USA Today. "His veto was very self-serving." Chaffetz and GOP
Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst will reintroduce the Presidential
Allowance Modernization Act...
May 1 - At the University of Florida, a student was
recently penalized for writing “man” instead of “humankind” in
a class paper. History major Martin Poirier wrote “Water is a
thing prior to man” on a paper for a history class called
“History of Water.” “Thoughtful paper, although the
writing-mechanics errors are killing you,” Professor Jack
Davis wrote at the bottom of the paper. He gave the student a
B minus, according to a copy of the essay published in the
student news outlet...
April 29 - On Friday, President Trump delivered a
speech to the National Rifle Association at its 2017
Leadership Forum in Atlanta. This marks the first time a
sitting president has done so since Ronald Reagan in 1983.
Triumphantly, Trump told the enthusiastic crowd, “The
eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come
to a crashing end. You have a true friend and champion in the
White House.” “You came through for me, and I am going to come
through for you,” he added.
May 3 - Saudi Aramco has become a 100-percent owner of
Port Arthur, an oil refinery in Texas. Port Arthur has a
capacity of 600,000 barrels per day, making it the biggest in
North America. The kingdom’s national oil company previously
owned 50 percent in the refinery before acquiring the full
stake from Royal Dutch Shell on Monday. Complicated relations
between the companies forced them to separate their assets. On
Monday, Shell announced the divorce was complete. Saudis also
May 3 - With its creditors at its heels and its coffers
depleted, Puerto Rico sought what is essentially bankruptcy
relief in federal court on Wednesday, the first time in
history that an American state or territory had taken the
extraordinary measure. The action sent Puerto Rico, whose
approximately $123 billion in debt and pension obligations far
exceeds the $18 billion bankruptcy filed by Detroit in 2013,
to uncharted ground. While the court proceedings could
eventually make the island solvent...
