Alabama Voters Duped Into Handing Crucial Senate Seat To Parasitic Leftist – WorldNetDaily
.

.
The Republican Party lost a critical seat in the U.S. Senate Tuesday as voters in the deeply conservative state of Alabama elected Democrat Doug Jones in an upset race that could jeopardize President Trump’s legislative agenda.

With 99 percent reporting, Jones had received 49.7 percent of the vote to Roy Moore’s 48.6 percent. Write-in votes accounted for 1.7 percent.

A Democrat hasn’t won a major statewide election in Alabama in more than a decade, since 2006, when Jim Folsom Jr. won the lieutenant governorship. And no Democrat in Alabama has won election to the Senate in 25 years.

“I think I have been waiting, and now I just don’t know what the hell to say,” said a stunned Jones after his victory…

12-Year-Old Raped At Gunpoint By Repeat Offender On GPS-Monitoring – Blue Lives Matter

A registered sex offender on GPS monitoring has been accused of raping a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint.

Collins Jacobs, 38, of Milwaukee is facing charges of one count of first degree sexual assault of a child, one count of kidnapping, and one count of child enticement, according to WITI.

Police said that the victim’s mother told them that her daughter had ran away from home sometime on Nov. 30, or early on Dec. 1. The mother’s sister later told her that the victim had been found outside outside the home of an unknown man.

The victim’s aunt was interviewed by police, who told them she was taking her children to school on the morning of Dec. 1 when she saw her niece, who she knew had ran away, in front of the home of an unknown man, later identified as Jacobs.

The aunt said she parked her car, approached her niece, and saw Jacobs “dragging her by the hood of her jacket toward a gas station near 27th and Burleigh.” She said she yelled at her niece, who ran up to her and told her she had been raped…

Democrats’ IT Man Imran Awan Abuses Women – Lloyd Billingsley
.

.
In Congress (Al Franken, John Conyers), entertainment (Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck) and the establishment media (Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose), women are stepping up with charges of sexual harassment, and in some cases powerful men are stepping down. As this unfolds, one key abuser has managed to avoid both the outcry and the scrutiny he deserves.

Imran Awan, the IT man employed by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other prominent Democrats, remains at the center of financial and security scandals. As Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller reported, “multiple women” in relationships with Imran have “called Virginia law enforcement and alleged being abused by him.”

Police found one of the women “bloodied” and another said she felt like a “slave.”…

ICE Arrests 101 Illegals In New Jersey Operation Targeting Criminal Aliens – ICE

A Mexican national in the country illegally, who has a prior conviction for sexual assault on a minor, is among 101 foreign nationals taken into custody during a five-day operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last week in New Jersey, targeting at-large criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and other immigration violators.

The operation was supported by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) New Jersey Field Office.

Of those arrested during the operation, which was spearheaded by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), 88 percent were convicted criminals and 80 percent of them had prior felony convictions.

The New Jersey enforcement effort comes days after the agency announced a 40 percent spike in administrative arrests nationwide over last year, 92 percent of which had a criminal conviction or a pending criminal charge, were an ICE fugitive, or were an illegal re-entrant…

Ohio School Board Says No To “Transgenders” Using Whatever Bathroom They Want – Daily Caller

An Ohio school board voted to reject a policy that would allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom or changing room facility they want rather than the room that agrees with a student’s biological sex.

The Lakota Local School Board shot down the proposed policy in a 3-2 vote late Monday night, according to Cincinnati.com.

“It’s poorly written policy, and it does not have legal support,” Board Member Todd Parnell said. “It’s a completely rushed and haphazard process coming up with this thing. We need to rewrite the thing and do it right.”

Some parents wanted the policy to pass, Cincinnati.com reported. “This is not going to go away,” said Linda Nix, the mother of a transgender student who graduated from the school. “It’s only going to compound. This should not be about politics, or about personal or religious beliefs. It’s about what is best for our district and for our students.”…

Federal Judge Deals Blow To Prosecution In Bundy Standoff Case By Warning Of Mistrial – Washington Times

A Nevada federal judge raised the possibility of a mistrial Monday in the 2014 standoff at the Bundy ranch, citing the failure of prosecutors to provide the defense in a timely fashion with a slew of documents.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro also dismissed the jurors, who had returned Monday to the Las Vegas courthouse for the first time since Nov. 29, and told them to return Dec. 20. She said the government’s failure to share documents, information and witness names with defense attorneys in a timely fashion was “sufficient to undermine the confidence in the outcome of the trial,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Her statements came as an encouraging sign for the four defendants – rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and their colleague Ryan Payne – all of whom are considered key figures in the showdown with the Bureau of Land Management.

“I hope to get the case dismissed before the jurors come back,” Bret Whipple, an attorney representing Cliven Bundy, told the Review-Journal…

Dem Rep. Bobby Rush Sued For $1 Million To Collect Unpaid Loan For Church He Founded – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic representative Bobby Rush is being sued for $1 million after failing to make payments on a loan he received for a church he founded in his home district in Illinois.

A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records.

Rush founded the Beloved Community Christian Church, a nondenominational Christian church, in Chicago in 2002 with the intent of helping disadvantaged people in his community.

“I founded a church in Englewood, one of Chicago’s poorest and most fragile neighborhoods, and named it Beloved Community Christian Church,” Rush wrote in a 2011 op-ed. “The church, once the site of a Black Panther breakfast program for children, now stands in tribute to Dr. King’s vision of the power of community. A social service center, a health center and an after school robotics program are also part of the church’s mission to care for people.”

Military Wives Furious Over Captain’s Proposal To Send Sex Workers To Front Lines For Stress Relief – BizPac Review

Hell hath no fury like… an upset military wife.

Australian Army Capt. Sally Williamson clearly didn’t think things through when she recommended that prostitutes be sent to the front line to help troops “relieve stress.”

It’s also safe to say that Williamson is likely single.

The captain wrote an essay, titled “Sex and War – A Conversation Army Has To Have,” suggesting that the army “contract Australian male and female sex workers to service troops in forward operating bases and air bases,” The New York Post reported.

Sex work is legal in Australia, though regulated differently throughout the country, according to The Post.

Williamson, who is currently serving in the Middle East, said sex not only could help with “loneliness or prolonged absence from family, friends, partners and spouses,” it may also make it easier for soldiers to adapt to a war zone…

Fake News Update: CNN Walks Back Jeff Sessions-Russia “Bombshell” – Daily Caller

CNN has quietly walked back more of their “bombshell” reporting on the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, and this time it’s a story relating to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ security clearance forms.

In May, CNN reported that Sessions had failed to disclose meetings he had with the Russian ambassador when he was a senator. Justice Department officials told CNN that Sessions had not listed those meetings on a security clearance form, even though the form says to list “any contact” with the “foreign government” or its “representatives” in the past seven years.

CNN framed the non-disclosures as more evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump team, writing, “He has come under withering criticism from Democrats following revelations that he did not disclose the same contacts with Kislyak during his Senate confirmation hearings earlier this year.”

At the time, Sessions said he was told by the FBI not to list meetings “connected with his Senate activities,” but CNN’s legal expert denied those claims…

So, you mean actually killing terrorists works?

Your stunningly non-shocking news of the day

With less than a year in office, President Trump has overseen massive gains against the Islamic caliphate, with the once-powerful terror state losing city after city.

ISIS once governed immense territory in Iraq and Syria, ruling over 8 million people and controlling profitable refineries, agriculture, smuggling routes, and arsenals.

Now, ISIS controls only 3 percent of Iraq and 5 percent of Syria. Their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is in hiding. American forces and regional allies have liberated key cities like Mosul, Raqqa, Tel Afar, and Rawa.

Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News he credits the Trump administration with providing the right leadership.

“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Croft said. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”

And what does our military do best? Better than any military? Kill evil people

President Trump has allowed Defense Secretary James Mattis great latitude to work without micromanagement. Mattis, a former Marine Corps. General and Commander of United States Central Command, is the first senior military officer to serve as Defense Secretary since George Marshall in the ’50s.

The President’s hands-off approach has led to accelerated results. “It moved more quickly than at least I had anticipated,” Croft said. “We and the Iraqi Security Forces were able to hunt down and target ISIS leadership, target their command and control.”

Marine Col. Seth Folsom, who oversaw fighting in Al Qaim near the Syrian border, described feeling “liberated” under the new leadership.

“I never felt constrained. In a lot of ways, I felt quite liberated because we had a clear mandate and there was no questioning that.”

Brig. Gen. Robert “G-Man” Sofge, the top U.S. Marine in Iraq, echoed Folsom’s sentiment, saying commanders have “enjoyed not having to deal with too many distractions and there was no question about what the mission here in Iraq was.”

Race baiting liar jailed for trying to be the next Al Sharpton

I guess he was just trying to get into the race baiting cash game

FT. PAYNE, Ala. – Fort Payne Police say they arrested a man today who made a false report and made it sound as though there was a shooting.

Investigators say someone called 911 at 10:19 Thursday morning saying shots had been fired. The dispatchers also reported hearing what they described as pops, possibly gunfire, before the caller hung up. The caller gave the dispatcher a description of a black male, wearing a white hoodie being in the area before hanging up.

Wanna guess who the guy with a hoodie was?

Officers say they arrived to find a man that matched the description sitting on a stoop of an apartment in the area of 101 14th Street, which is where the caller reported the shots. They approached the man, who appeared to be holding a cell phone.

Officers searched the man and found no weapons. They identified him as Michael Duran Havis, 28, of Guntersville. They searched the area, and spoke with witnesses. Those witnesses reportedly told police they didn’t hear any gunshots.

Further investigation by police showed Havis was live streaming the incident on Facebook. He told his viewers the officers were driving around the block and he felt they were going to harass him. (Note: We have included the Facebook Live in question below)

Ah, another hoax gone wrong.The Racial Grievance business is booming so I guess he thought he could cash in by faking police harassment. Hey it has worked for a lot of people right? Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the leadership of the NAACP,  Deray McKesson, Shaun King, who is not even black, and the list goes on. Hell, the entire Black Lives Matter is based on lies, so why cant this scumbag get some Benjamins too, right?

Cult of Gun Control targets toy guns

Oh the idiocy

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) –  A community groups has a strong message for parents this Christmas. They want to help keep toy guns out of children’s hands…to prevent them from getting their hands on a real one.

“This is a cap gun and it sounds real,” said Leonard Lane.

As Leonard Lane shows a toy gun that’s filled with candy, he says it doesn’t need to be given to a child.

“Whatever you put in a child’s hands that’s what he feels comfortable with and you put a toy gun in his hands at an early age and when he gets older he’s going to want the real thing,” said Leonard Lane, president of Buffalo F.A.T.H.E.R.S organization

That’s why Lane is encouraging parents to give up their child’s toy guns this Christmas and exchange it for a different toy, as part of the annual Toy Gun Exchange at the Delavan Grider community center.

Such energy wasted on foolish pursuits.

Activist Judge Releases Racist, Black Thug Who Beat And Tortured Disabled, White Man On Facebook Live – Breitbart

The first of four Chicago suspects accused of beating and torturing a disabled teenager and broadcasting the attack on Facebook has pleaded guilty, but a judge let her off without prison time, a report says.

Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this up,” Judge Hooks imposed 200 hours of community service and banned Covington from using social media and having contact with her co-defendants for four years.

NFL Ticket Prices Fall To An Incredible $4 Apiece In Buffalo – Independent Journal Review

The NFL has been hit hard ever since more players than ever protested during the national anthem in retaliation to President Donald Trump criticizing those who kneeled.

Despite all of this, the protests have continued.

Eric Reid, a San Francisco 49ers safety and frequent protester, revealed the details of the funding, which will see a whopping $89 million invested in social justice causes.

The Court divided five to four along ideological lines in a late Friday ruling that temporarily permits the administration to conceal records relating to the program. Justice Stephen Breyer dissented from the decision, joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.

A federal judge charged Ricardo Villalba, who headed the Institute of Snow, Ice and Environmental Research (IANIGLA), with “abusing his authority and violating his duty as a civil servant,” Nature.com reported.

The charges stem from a lawsuit brought by Argentine environmentalists who claim Villalba’s 2011 glacier survey “did not comply with a law enacted in 2010 that was designed to give extra protections to Argentina’s glaciers,” Nature.com reported. The court put a $300,000 lien on his property.

Environmentalists allege Villalba rigged the glacier survey to favor mining interests, but the glaciologist denied the charges. In fact, scientists overwhelmingly support Villalba in the case, saying it’s a politically motivated witch hunt…

Retiring Leftist Rep. Gutierrez Paid Wife $430,000 From Campaign Funds Over Past Seven Years – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.), who announced last week that he will not seek reelection after spending 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, will no longer be able to pay his wife hundreds of thousands of dollars from campaign funds once he officially departs from Congress.

Soraida Gutierrez, his wife, has collected more than $430,000 from Gutierrez for Congress, Luis’s campaign committee, since 2010. Soraida is the top recipient of expenditures this year.

Soraida, who was a registered lobbyist in Illinois prior to appearing on the campaign’s payroll, has been listed as the campaign’s office manager, fundraiser, and treasurer for the past seven years.

Gutierrez’s campaign committee has reported $77,838.69 in operating expenditures from the beginning of January to the end of September. Soraida has received seven checks for $6,000 each – or $42,000 total – during this time, meaning that she has collected more than half of his campaign’s disbursements…

DOJ Reviewing More Than 10,000 Text Messages Between Anti-Trump Mueller Investigators – Daily Caller

The Justice Department is sifting through 10,000 text messages involving the FBI agent who was kicked off of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for making anti-Trump comments.

Fox News reports that the bureau is reviewing “several months” worth of messages that the agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI attorney with whom he was having an affair.

The Justice Department is searching the texts before turning them over to the House Intelligence Committee, a process which could take “weeks.”

The Justice Department’s inspector general discovered over the summer that Strzok and Page exchanged anti-Trump and pro-Clinton text messages last year. After the watchdog informed Mueller’s office, Strzok was “immediately” removed from the Russia investigation, a spokesman for Mueller said over the weekend.

Details of Strzok’s removal were kept secret for months…

The Lies Of Huma Abedin – Daniel Greenfield

Huma “Abedin did not know that Clinton had a private server until about a year and a half ago when it became public knowledge.”

Abedin, Hillary’s closest aide, was being interviewed at the FBI’s Washington D.C. field office by two unnamed agents. Also present was Peter Strzok, the counterintelligence FBI figure embroiled in a scandal because of the pro-Hillary and anti-Trump texts exposed by his extramarital affair.

The field office is another one of those bland government buildings located near enough to the Mall for tourists who are going the wrong way to stumble on it, but not interesting enough for them to notice it.

The building, like so many others, is part of the deeper architecture of the governing city that matters far more than the showy museums or even the White House and its adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Study Finds Top 1% Thrived Under Obama, The Rest Of Us Not So Much – Don Surber

Economist Edward N. Woolf published a paper that shows that under Barack Obama, the wealthiest 1% increased their share of America’s wealth to 40%.

The Washington Post blamed President Trump for what Obama did.

Hilarious.

From the Washington Post:

The wealthiest 1 percent of American households own 40 percent of the country’s wealth, according to a new paper by economist Edward N. Woolf. That share is higher than it has been at any point since at least 1962, according to Woolf’s data, which comes from the federal Survey of Consumer Finances.

From 2013, the share of wealth owned by the 1 percent shot up by nearly three percentage points. Wealth owned by the bottom 90 percent, meanwhile, fell over the same period. Today, the top 1 percent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined…

20 States Call For End To Forced Unionism – Washington Free Beacon

Twenty states are backing a lawsuit seeking to overturn mandatory union membership for public sector employees, arguing that forcing them to pay fees is akin to “the forced subsidization of a political party.”

The states, led by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette (R), filed an amicus brief to the Supreme Court voicing their support for Illinois state worker Mark Janus’s lawsuit against the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).

The suit seeks to bar government agencies from requiring union dues or fee payments as a condition of employment. The states argue that the Supreme Court erred in the 1977 Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, which said such arrangements were constitutional.

“Amici States have a vital interest in protecting the First Amendment rights of public employees, and in the fiscal health of state and local governments,” the brief says. “Given the enormous power of the modern public-sector union and the often vast public-policy consequences of its collective bargaining activities…

Salman tried to persuade the judge to hold the trial in another city, saying she could not get a fair trial in Orlando.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Bad day to rob a Popeyes

A father fatally shot an armed robber who threatened him and his family at a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in San Antonio, Texas.

Officers told Fox San Antonio that 19-year-old Andrews Herrera was killed after he approached Carlos Molina, 32, just before 9 p.m. Wednesday. Molina was eating at the fried chicken chain with his family when Herrera demanded that he hand over his property and threatened his children with a gun, police say.

According to the news site, Molina told Herrera that he had no money and asked whether his family could leave. Most of the family left the restaurant, but Herrera then pointed the gun at two of Molina’s children as they walked out of a restroom. In response, Molina drew his licensed handgun and shot Herrera several times, fatally wounding him, police said.

Self-defense, the ultimate human right

How NOT to fight crime

One duty the government has is to protect citizens from violent felons. The best way to do that, of course is to issue tough sentences for those convicted of violent felonies right? Then there are cases like this

What in the holy fuck is this?

  • A Chicago woman who live-streamed video of the racially charged beating of a teen with mental disabilities pleaded guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years of probation.

    Brittany Covington, 19, has been in custody since her arrest in January.

    Calling the incident “horrific,” Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks banned Covington from social media over the four years, prohibited her from contact with two of her co-defendants and ordered her to do 200 hours of community service.

    Hooks told Covington he could have imposed a prison sentence but added, “I’m not sure if I did that you’d be coming out any better.”

    Hooks said he hoped the strict terms of probation would put Covington on a more productive life path, but he warned she would face prison time if she violated any of the restrictions.

    “Do not mess this up,” Hooks told Covington, who stood quietly in a blue jail uniform with her hands clasped behind her back.

  • Wow, community service and a social media ban? For taking part in a brutal case of kidnapping, assault, battery, of a mentally challenged man? Oh sure she might get a harsh sentence the next time she helps brutally victimize someone. So what, we get tough after two people are harmed?

Woman will marry her chandelier….uh what?

Crazy as a pet coon

It didn’t take long to get from homosexual “marriage” to this:

Amanda Liberty, 33, of Leeds, said she proposed to her favorite chandelier on Valentine’s Day while continuing an open relationship with the rest of her collection of 25 chandeliers.

Why should she commit to just a single chandelier, even if she is marrying it? After all, we are meant to regard marriage as a joke now.

“You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there,” Liberty told Caters News.

“I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere,” she says. Lumiere is the chandelier’s name.

Crazy? Yes, but get ready for bat shit crazy

“I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was — she has such a beautiful shape, and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her,” Liberty said. “Although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine.”

So, the chandelier is a female?

Although Lumiere is the only chandelier that wears a ring, Liberty explained she loves all the light fixtures in her collection.

“None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities,” she said. “For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle.”

Their personalities? But, crazy gets deeper Liberty is a objectum sexual

However, Liberty, who identifies as objectum sexual (OS), said her first love was a drum set at 14 years old.

She was also previously been in love with the Statue of Liberty — for which she legally changed her name in 2010 — and has traveled to New York six times to visit it, but said the distance took its toll on their relationship.

Their relationship?

What Is Objectum Sexual (OS)?

Sometimes referred to as objectophilia, OS has to do with the attraction and commitment to inanimate objects and is thought to be related to the autism spectrum, an antisocial personality disorder, or past trauma.

However, Erika Eiffel, a San Francisco woman married to the Eiffel Tower, disagrees.

“OS people have a spectrum just as society does from one extreme to the next. It’s a misconception that OS people only love objects and cannot relate to people on any level,” she wrote in an interview with support group Objectum-Sexuality Internationale. “The reality is, most OS people are social but choose not to expose themselves to public scrutiny and jeopardize the balance they have established.”

OK then, I could go on but my fridge, Big Frosty is calling so…………….

Sarah Silverman is a professional idiot, do not try this at home

Oh no, babbling idiot Sarah Silverman has a boyfriend who had an American flag, that triggered her Downtrend has the story

On her show I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman, she proves without a doubt that her program is deceptively titled with this little anecdote:

“I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard. And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared – yeah, I felt scared. So I was like, ‘Uh, what are you doing?’ and he said, ‘Raising the flag,’ and I was like, ‘Why?’ and he’s like, ‘Um, because I love America?’ and I was like, ‘Right, right, of course.’ But inside I was shaken,” started Silverman.

But wait, it gets worse when she is able to identify the source of her disturbing feelings:

“I called my sister Susie to tell her what happened. Now, maybe you’re thinking, ‘What do you mean what happened? Nothing happened, your boyfriend put an American flag up at his own house.’ No, you’re totally right, I had no idea why I was freaking out. I just – I had this very visceral reaction and my sister, who knows shit because she’s a rabbi in Israel, explained to me, she was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance? These things tend to ring a bell for us.’ Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense,” said Silverman.

So, national pride = Nationalism = Nazism = anti=-Semitism? Good Freaking Grief!

The Cult of Gun Control Stuck on Stupid

Another useless gun buyback event, this one in Taxachusetts. As Tom Knighton points out, no one with a clue really thinks these events deter or reduce crime

Seriously, what kind of moron really thinks these programs disarm bad people? Come on, they can use the gun to knock over one liquor store on a Friday night and make more than that. Why would they give up the tools of their trade for such pathetic offerings?

Time and again, these programs happen and everyone pats themselves on the back over how they’re doing good work, meanwhile, it does nothing to address anything like actual problems. Nothing that prevents people from joining gangs or engaging in armed robbery, drug dealing, nothing.

But for gun grabbers–the people who support these programs so vehemently–it’s never been about actually combating violence. It’s all about the dog & pony show, the act of looking like you’re accomplishing great things without having to actually do anything meaningful.

As with many things the Left does, this is about look at me, I care! Actual results? Who cares, just look at me, see how much I care
