(Fox News) Of course: NZ Prime Minister announces a ban on “military style semi-automatic weapons” after the mosque attack, in addition to “all assault rifles.” Jacinda Ardern told the media that legislation is currently being drafted and she expects the law to take effect by April 11. “We will ban all high-capacity magazines. We will ban all parts with the ability to convert semiautomatic, or any other type of firearm, into a military-style semi-automatic weapon. In short, every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack on Friday will be banned in this country." In a so-called “buyback” program, guns to be surrendered to police and “eventually destroyed.” Penalties for possession will include fines of up to $4,000 and/or three years in prison. She said most owners will support the ban because it’s about “national interest” and “safety.”
Preparations were underway for a massive so-called “prayer service” to be held Friday, with nearly 4,000 people expected to attend.
(Drudge) Border Patrol says detention centers are full; Starts releasing migrants… (The Virginia Pilot) The Border Patrol released 250 migrants here on Tuesday and Wednesday and expects to free hundreds more in coming days because there is no room to hold them. Normally, the agency would transfer the migrants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be “processed” and in many cases placed in detention facilities. But officials said Wednesday that a recent influx of Central American families has led to a severe shortage of space. (I mentioned yesterday Agents are to stop holding… illegals anymore.)
So-called “Immigrant advocates” in support of the illegals suggested the releases were intended to sow confusion at the border and further President Donald Trump’s argument that there is a national emergency there. “They are doing this deliberately so they can release a ton of people at once and create chaos,” said Efren Olivares, an attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project, which sent lawyers to the McAllen bus station to monitor developments. “The government is trying to do this.”
But a Border Patrol official — speaking anonymously — denied that the release was a political stunt and said crowded facilities threatened agents and migrants. “It is a crisis. It’s not a self-proclaimed crisis.”
400 Migrants Apprehended in Five Minutes… (Breitbart) El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended two large groups of Central American migrants after they illegally crossed the border from Mexico. Agents apprehended the two groups totaling more than 400 during a five-minute period early Tuesday.
(Drudge) Kellyanne Sides With President Over Spouse… (Mediaite) “He left it alone for months out of respect for me,” Conway, a senior Trump aide, told POLITICO in a brief telephone interview. “But you think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder? You think he should just take that sitting down?” Yesterday afternoon, Trump bashed George Conway again––calling him a “whack job”—minutes before the Politico piece dropped.

(Drudge) Presidential candidate Andrew Yang suggests Universal Income Can Curb the Racism… (according to the New York Observer) of his “white nationalist fans.” Yang appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience touting a so-called “Freedom Dividend,” giving $1000 a month to like everyone? Canadian journalist Faith Goldy, whose Twitter profile pic shows support for Yang, told the Observer, “It’s my perception that American nationalists are coming to grips with demographic replacement and hence welcome their Taiwanese overlord, Andrew Yang. Despite his many shortcomings, mass migration seems to be the result, no matter the president, and so $1,000 each month should steady their hands behind the wheel on America’s highway to hell.”
He said “I’ve been talking about problems that affect truck drivers, the opioid epidemic that’s killing Americans in many communities.” He says he’s against racism. He says “economic insecurity can fuel a mindset of scarcity that then helps lead to xenophobia and racism and hatred…” but “the ‘Freedom Dividend’ of $1,000 per month might actually help make people more reasonable and generous and accepting.” He claims it’s not immigrants, it’s automation, taking people’s jobs.
Yang also Wants Penalties For 'Fake News'... (Daily Caller) Yang promises the federal government will punish media companies pushing “misinformation,” but he says “we should face the reality that fake news and misinformation spread via social media threatens to undermine our democracy and may make it impossible for citizens to make informed decisions on a shared set of facts.” He called out “Russia” in particular as intending to do harm.
(Drudge) Media Investigative FOIA Requests Jump 669% Since Obama Left… (All of a sudden they’re soo interested in “journalism” and “questioning authority.” (Wash. Free Beacon) Media FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) requests to the EPA (so-called Environmental Protection Agency — a misnomer) Spiked After Trump Election, Data Reveal. Outlets such as NYT, WaPo grew FOIA-happy immediately after Trump took office. Reporters at the Times have made 100 FOIA requests since Trump took office just over two years ago, a 669 percent increase of the number of FOIA requests it made during Obama's last four years. Reporters at the Washington Post sent just a single FOIA request to the EPA during Obama's entire second term, and have sent 43 FOIA requests to the agency since Trump took office. Similar stories with ABC News, CNN, Politico, The Hill…. So NOW they want to scrutinize the president.
(Fox News) 2020 Dem candidate's gym video gets mocked on social media — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), age 52, shared a video on social media of herself working out, tweeting, “Good to be back in Iowa. Do you like my new workout shirt?” She wore a T-shirt that said, “Just trying to get some ranch,” referring to a time when a patron walking by her but wasn’t trying to talk to her, they apologized and said they were getting salad dressing. People suggested Gillibrand was trying too hard and it was “cringeworthy.”
(Drudge) People don't become adults until 30s, say brain scientists... (They’re probably just measuring people of the world today.) (BBC) Current law says you become a mature adult when you reach the age of 18. But scientists studying the brain and nervous system say it’s different for everyone. People aged 18 are still going through changes in the brain which can affect behaviour and make them more likely to develop mental health disorders. Some Cambridge Professor Peter Jones points out obvious stuff like that ‘criminal judges recognise the difference between a 19-year-old defendant and a "hardened criminal" in their late 30s.’

(Drudge) Psychedelic In Toad Venom Helps Relieve Depression, Anxiety… (Study Finds) Research at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine shows the fast-acting psychedelic, 5-MeO-DMT helped relieve symptoms in about 80 percent of the 362 study participants who tried it in a group setting. Patients with depression and anxiety reported greater feelings of life satisfaction and well-being, and also reported a more spiritual experience during the treatment. Co-author Alan K. Davis says “DMT... may enhance mood in general or may be particularly mood enhancing for those individuals experiencing clinically significant negative mood. Regardless, this research is in its infancy and further investigation is warranted in healthy volunteers.”
(Drudge) Police investigate woman who misgendered trans in tweets… (The Telegraph) Devout Catholic 'who used wrong pronoun to describe transgender girl' to be interviewed by police. Caroline Farrow, a Catholic commentator, and transgender rights campaigner Susie Green, agreed to take part in a television debate about a controversial Girl Guides policy. They continued the debate on Twitter which resulted in a six-month-long police investigation. Mrs Farrow, a mother of five with strong religious views, allegedly used the wrong pronoun when referring to Ms Green's transgender daughter. Ms. Green was so angered by what she described as a “distressing and spiteful” attack that she filed a formal complaint with Surrey police. Amazing.
Also, FYI: Making jokes at Portland State University gets you reported to its bias response team… (The College Fix) Two bias reports filed at the public institution last fall were against people making jokes or similar off-hand comments on campus, per findings of a public records act request.
Last September, a student overheard someone in their classroom making a comment about sometimes feeling like they having schizophrenia. “She then stated she was not trying to make fun of schizophrenia,” the anonymous student reported, “but that sometimes she can be ‘schizophrenic.’ … She stated this in a joking manner and even laughed about it.”
Last October, another student complained about a professor telling jokes in class “about Native Americans where he called the characters racist names like chief running water and other names in that style. He did not tell the whole joke, but he said it ended with one of the chief’s sons killing someone or being killed. I did not hear his exact words because he was trying to be quiet. I am worried he may have impacted any Native students’ ability to learn safely in his class by taking advantage of stereotypes created by people to dehumanize Native people after taking their land and committing genocide and the generational trauma they face from that.”
According to the university’s website, “Any person who has experienced, witnessed, or heard of a bias incident” is encouraged to file a complaint electronically.
