QAnon's New Conspiracy: Democrats Are Stealing African Children
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyABUJA, Nigeria—Just days after Twitter announced that it's no longer letting the QAnon conspiracy theory run rampant on its site, the theory's promoters began to target media in Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation and the world's biggest Black society, sending emails depicting United States Democrats as anti-Black to multiple newsrooms and individual journalists. 

In one email sent to multiple journalists, including news staff of Cool FM, Wazobia FM and Nigeria Info FM—Nigeria's three biggest private radio stations—the sender, who goes by the name "William Gyado," claimed a U.S. government agent with access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its American opponents had found that "there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who rule and control almost everything in the world" and that these pedophiles are Americans who exploit Black people, including children in West Africa, and brutalize African Americans using law-enforcement agents. 

The email also says former U.S. vice-president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden disrespects Black people and is being protected by pedophiles. The sender claims U.S. President Donald Trump knows all about this evil cabal's wrongdoing and that most Americans elected Trump to put an end to the cabal.

MYTHS VS. FACTS | 50 Nights of Violence, Chaos, and Anarchy in Portland, OREGON
: The DHS personnel sent to protect federal facilities in Portland are sworn civilian federal law enforcement officers, not active duty military personnel.Reports indicating otherwise are irresponsible and inaccurate.: Downtown Portland has seen over 50 straight nights of criminal violence perpetrated by anarchists targeting city and federal properties and those that inhabit them. On July 3rd, before the surge of DHS law enforcement officers to Portland, Mayor Wheeler said the violence had "been going on for more than a month now" and called for the "nightly violence" to end.The Portland Police Department has declared a riot on numerous occasions because of the nightly violence, which occurred well before the federal presence increased in early July. Enforcing federal law is not by invitation.  The FBI, DEA, ATF, and other federal law enforcement agencies do not require local requests from communities to enforce federal law. Federal law clearly states that DHS has the authority to protect federal property and arrest criminals who damage federal property or attack federal officers.Local and state leaders have prohibited the Portland police from enforcing laws that could bring this violence to an end.: Federal law, in particular 40 U.S.C. § 1315, clearly states that the Secretary of Homeland Security "shall protect the buildings, grounds, and property that are owned, occupied, or secured

Acting Secretary Wolf Signs Exemption Allowing Entry of Certain Foreign Professional Athletes into the US
In support of the Trump Administration's reopening of the economy, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf signed an order that exempts certain foreign professional athletes who compete in professional sporting events organized by certain leagues, including their essential staff and their dependents, from proclamations barring their entry into the U.S.

"Professional sporting events provide much needed economic benefits, but equally important, they provide community pride and national unity," said Acting Secretary Wolf. "In today's environment, Americans need their sports. It's time to reopen the economy and it's time we get our professional athletes back to work."

The order, signed on May 22, 2020, states that it is in the national interest to except aliens who compete in professional sporting events organized by certain professional sporting groups, including their professional staff, team and league leadership, spouses, and dependents, from entry restrictions laid out in Proclamations 9984, 9992, 9993, and 9996.

The Department will work with the professional sporting groups to identify the specific athletes, essential staff, team and league leadership, spouses, and dependents covered by this exemption, including Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the Women's National Basketball Association, the Professional Golfers' Association Tour, the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, the National Hockey League, the Association of Tennis Professionals, and the Women's Tennis Association.

This order does not exempt individuals from inspection by Customs and Border Protection or any other agency requirements. The Acting Secretary may add or remove those exempted from the list based on assessments of national interest, including the plans of the relevant professional sporting groups to support sporting events in the United States that do not cause an unnecessary risk to the public health.
