‘You Owe Me For Making My Grandmother A Slave’: Disabled Man Attacked On Bus Because He’s Old And White – Law Newz

A disabled, homeless man was attacked on a public bus in Maryland – apparently because of his age and race.

The 52-year-old passenger, who is white and not being named in press reports, was riding the Q1 bus on Sunday, September 24 when 27-year-old Marquis Evans-Royster, who is black, allegedly approached him and said: “You owe me for making my grandmother a slave.”

The homeless and disabled man reportedly remained calm after being accused of the impossible crime according to the local ABC affiliate.

After his target ignored the charge, Evans-Royster is said to have begun rifling through the 52-year-old’s pockets. Eventually, bystanders felt compelled to intervene. This upset the alleged attacker even more.

As fellow passengers cast their lot with the man being assaulted, Evans-Royster apparently charged at them in retaliation. Then he allegedly spit in the homeless man’s face and threatened to throw a container full of urine on him…

More Cases Of Voter Fraud Pile Up As Liberals Look The Other Way – Daily Signal
.

.
The Heritage Foundation added another round of cases this week to its ever-growing Voter Fraud Database.

Accounting for these new additions, the database now documents 1,088 proven instances of election fraud, including 949 cases that have resulted in criminal convictions, 48 that have ended in civil penalties, and 75 that have seen defendants enter diversion programs.

Americans should be alarmed, not only because Heritage has compiled so many examples of fraud – impacting nearly every state and elections for all levels of government – but because this figure is likely just the tip of the iceberg.

The Heritage database is not a comprehensive tally of election fraud. That figure would almost certainly be substantially larger…

ACLU Sues To Block Ballot Initiative On Transgender Bathroom, Locker Room Use – Helena Independent Record

The ACLU of Montana filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of a proposed ballot initiative that would require transgender residents to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sex at birth.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in District Court in Cascade County on behalf of seven transgender Montanans, the parents of a transgender 9-year-old and the city of Missoula. The Bozeman City Commission voted Monday to join the effort.

“This proposed measure legalizes discrimination,” said Alex Rate, legal director for the ACLU of Montana.

The ACLU and the plaintiffs argue the Locker Room Privacy Act would deprive transgender Montanans of equal protection under the law and violate their rights to privacy, dignity and due process.

The lawsuit asks the court to declare the initiative unconstitutional and to prevent Secretary of State Corey Stapleton from placing it on the November 2018 ballot…

U.S.-Backed Syrian Forces Liberate ISIS Stronghold Of Raqqa – Fox News

The Syrian city of Raqqa was liberated from ISIS fighters Tuesday, a commander with U.S.-backed Syrian forces said, announcing the “fall of the capital of terrorism.” Brig. Gen. Talal Sillo told The Associated Press on Tuesday there were no longer clashes going on in the city, and that a formal declaration would follow.

Despite Sillo’s announcement, a U.S. military spokesperson told Fox News the ISIS stronghold has been 90 percent recaptured and some fighting remains. “There are still areas that have not been cleared,” Army Col. Ryan Dillon told Fox News in an interviewfrom Baghdad.

The loss deprived the terror group of the capital of its so-called caliphate, which has dwindled from a land mass spanning two countries to a sliver of space in Syria…

It Figures… DACA Illegal Aliens Working In California Government On Immigration Issues – Breitbart

Illegal aliens who have received temporary amnesty from the Obama administration are reportedly working as interns and aides in local California government on immigration issues.

Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been allowed to remain in the U.S. and work legally. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of President Donald Trump that DACA would officially be ended in March 2018.

A new report by the San Jose Mercury News reveals the extent to which DACA beneficiaries have been given opportunities ahead of Americans, with many working as aides and interns on immigration-related issues in San Jose, California.

For instance, Mario Lopez, an illegal alien in the DACA program, works as an aide and adviser to Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors President Dave Cortese. Lopez advises Cortese on immigration issues, despite technically being in the U.S. illegally…

Senate Judiciary Opens Probe Into Obama-Era Russian Nuclear Bribery Case – The Hill

The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a probe into a Russian nuclear bribery case, demanding several federal agencies disclose whether they knew the FBI had uncovered the corruption before the Obama administration in 2010 approved a controversial uranium deal with Moscow.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee chairman, gets his first chance to raise the issue in public on Wednesday when he questions Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an oversight hearing.

Aides said the committee had sent requests for information to 10 federal agencies involved in the Russian uranium approvals. The committee is discussing other bipartisan requests to make in the coming days…

If You Live In One Of These Nine States, You’ll Soon Need A Passport To Fly Domestically – Circa

In just over three months, residents from nine states will be required to show a U.S. passport to board any flight, including domestic travel, according to new TSA guidelines.

“Starting January 22, 2018, you will need a driver’s license or ID from a state compliant with the REAL ID Act, a state that has an extension for compliance, or an alternate ID to fly,” the Department of Homeland Security wrote in a public flier.

People who possess an ID from Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington will need to use a passport to travel domestically if the states do not upgrade their security standards.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act establishes the minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and ID cards. It prohibits federal agencies, like the TSA, from accepting such cards for certain official purposes, including boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft…

Trey Gowdy: Samantha Power Testified That Intel Officials Made ‘Unmasking’ Requests In Her Name – Washington Examiner

House Oversight & Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said Tuesday that President Obama’s former United Nations ambassador has testified that not all of the “unmasking” requests made in her name were directed by her.

Samantha Power testified in Gowdy’s committee last week, and Fox News reported weeks before her appearance that she was thought to have made as many as 260 requests to “unmask” Americans caught up in the surveillance of non-U.S. citizens.

But Tuesday evening, Gowdy told Fox News that Power told his committee that she was not the official requesting that unmasking in every case. “I think if she were on your show, she would say those requests to unmask may have been attributed to her, but they greatly exceed by an exponential factor the requests she actually made,” Gowdy said…

Networks Blast Trump Over End Of Obamacare Subsidies, Hide Their Illegality – NewsBusters

On Friday and over the weekend, ABC, CBS and NBC reacted with their typical anti-Trump fervor to the President’s decision to end federal subsidies of insurance companies through ObamaCare, but only a meager portion of broadcast news coverage – barely three percent – tipped viewers off to the fact those payments were unconstitutional in the first place.

Instead, news coverage touted the anecdotal stories of those benefiting from the payments, and the “fear” they faced with the prospect of those subsidies ending, without seeming to care very much that no proper authorization for the government spending ever existed.

From Friday morning, October 13, through Sunday evening, October 15, the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news shows aired a total of 38 minutes, 8 seconds of coverage of the Trump administration’s decision to end the illegal subsidy payments begun under the Obama administration. Only 71 seconds of that airtime – none of it on NBC! – was spent on the important point that these payments were being made without Congressional authorization, and thus unconstitutional, according to a May 2016 federal court decision…

FBI Uncovered Russian Bribery Plot Before Obama Approved Uranium One Deal, Netting Clintons Millions – Zero Hedge

As the mainstream media continues to obsess over $100,000 worth Facebook ads allegedly purchased by Russian spies in 2016 seeking to throw the presidential election, we’re almost certain they’ll ignore the much larger Russian bombshell dropped today in the form of newly released FBI documents that reveal for the very first time that the Obama administration was well aware of illegal bribery, extortion and money laundering schemes being conducted by the Russians to get a foothold in the atomic energy business in the U.S. before approving a deal that handed them 20% of America’s uranium reserves, and resulted in a windfall of donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Dumbest Ex-VP In History Awards RINO Douchebag Who Blocked Obamacare Repeal With Medal Previously Won By Crooked Hillary – Washington Examiner

Sen. John McCain received this year’s National Constitution Center Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night and was honored by former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden called the longtime Arizona sentor a dear friend and praised his courage and loyalty.

The two met when McCain served as the Navy’s liaison to the Senate Foreign Relations committee in the 1970s while Biden was on the committee, he said. “He jokes he carried my bags,” Biden said. “He never carried my bags.”

Over the years, Biden said, the two counseled each other. When McCain first ran for office, Biden was encouraging. In the 1990s, Biden said the two were chastised by their parties for sitting together during debates. In recent years, the two have been honored for their bipartisanship.

“We don’t understand why you should get an award for bipartisanship,” Biden said. The former vice president said he never expected to find himself on the ballot against McCain, as he did during the 2008 presidential race…

Republican Candidate For Georgia Governor Holds Bump Stock Giveaway – Washington Examiner

A Republican candidate for Georgia governor is holding a bump stock giveaway to underscore his opposition to a proposed ban in response to the Las Vegas massacre.

Georgia state Sen. Michael Williams called the opposition to bump stocks – an attachment that enables a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster – “an attack on the Second Amendment.”

“The tragedy in Las Vegas broke my heart, but any talk of banning or regulating bump stocks is merely cheap political lip service from career politicians. In reality, the bump stock is the new, shiny object politicians are using to deceive voters into believing they are taking action against gun violence,” Williams said in a news release.

Williams said he is giving away the bump stocks “as a show of support” for gun owners…

Suspect Arrested For Campus Graffiti Swastika Is Black Ex-Employee – PJ Media

A while back, someone spray-painted a swastika on a trash cart at the University of Maryland. As with so many other similar situations lately, students got extremely upset and the school did its best to respond.

Although officials didn’t indicate what the suspect’s motive was, it could be an anti-semitic hate crime or a faked hate crime.

From The College Fix:

You wouldn’t know it by reading news from the University of Maryland or its student newspaper, but the suspect charged in connection with a spray-painted swastika on campus is African-American.

So maybe that’s why currently only one news outlet notes swastika suspect Alford is black:

Court records show the man accused of spray-painting a swastika inside a residence hall at the University of Maryland in September is African American…

NFL leftist politics continues to take over the game, in fact, it just got a whole lot worse.

It’s a two-day affair but “then the organizers of that curriculum will work with the players throughout the year to try and teach them to get their message out and be most effective with it,” Trotter said.

FBI Confirms That Comey Drafted Statement On Clinton Probe Months Before Investigation Ended – Daily Caller

The FBI released emails Monday confirming that former FBI Director James Comey drafted statements regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before the probe was closed.

The bureau released a file entitled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation,” to its Freedom of Information Act website. The file contains an email Comey sent May 2, 2016, to several FBI officials regarding the Clinton email probe, which was referred to internally by the codename “Midyear Exam.”

The draft statement was first revealed in late August by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Republicans questioned whether Comey’s draft statement indicated that he had arrived at a conclusion about the Clinton investigation months before he interviewed the former secretary of state and numerous other witnesses. The draft was also prepared before the Justice Department had made immunity deals with Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson…

Maxine Waters’ Campaign Committee Wrote Off $10K Spent On Hamilton Tickets As A Fundraiser Expense – Washington Examiner

Rep. Maxine Waters’ campaign committee reportedly paid $10,000 for tickets to Broadway smash hit “Hamilton” and wrote the payment off as a fundraiser expense. Citizens for Waters paid for tickets on Aug. 26, according to a Federal Election Commission report of receipts and disbursements.

A representative of the California Democrat, a strident opponent of President Trump, did not immediately return a request for comment from the Washington Examiner about the disclosure.

Inquiries made to Ticket Fulfillment Services LP, the recipient listed on the form, were also not immediately responded to. Citizens for Waters raised a total of $954,948 and spent $1.05 million to re-elect Waters – a member of the U.S. Congress since 1991 – as of Dec. 1 2016, per Inside Gov…

Satanic Looking Drag Queen With Horns Reads To Little Kids At Michelle Obama Public Library In Long Beach – Gateway Pundit

The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday who read books to young children as part of the library’s celebration LGBTQ History Month.

The shocking photo of a man dressed as a female demon with giant horns on his head reading to little children at a public library was posted to Twitter and Facebook by the Long Beach Library but taken down after a huge outpouring of critical replies, including from GOP Congressional candidate Omar Navarro. It also got the approval of the Church of Satan.

From this promotional graphic posted by the City of Long Beach one can see the targeted audience was very young children.

Xochi Mochi, the drag queen who dressed as a demon, posted the same photo to his Instagram account and commented on Twitter about the event. His Twitter bio reads, “Attention Earthlings: This is Xochi Mochi your resident killer Klown from outer space. I dress up in drags and love tacos.”…

Right-Wing Foreign Minister Set To Become Austria’s Youngest Chancellor – Quartz

Sebastian Kurz, the 31-year-old head of the right-leaning People’s Party and outgoing foreign minister, is set to become the world’s youngest leader after his party declared victory in today’s general election.

Politico Europe reports it could take days for a definitive second-place winner to shake out, as Austria prepares to tally 900,000 mail-in ballots on Thursday (Oct. 19). But multiple projections show the People’s Party finishing significantly ahead of the rest of the pack; the counting is more of a matter of figuring out whether the far-right Freedom Party or the centrist Social Democrats will place second.

A People’s Party win signifies a substantial shift in national politics in Austria, after more than a decade under the leadership of a centrist coalition government…

Obamacare Tax To Raise Premiums In 2018, Cost $270 Billion Over Next Decade – Washington Free Beacon

An Obamacare tax that will be imposed in 2018 will raise premiums even further and is estimated to cost $270 billion over the next decade, according to a report commissioned by UnitedHealth Group.

The report was commissioned to examine how a tax imposed by Obamacare would impact premiums. Under Obamacare, health insurers that offer coverage are required to pay a fee on health insurance premiums they earn, which is also considered a tax by the IRS.

Congress imposed a moratorium on collecting these taxes in 2017, but that moratorium will end the beginning of 2018. According to the report, $13.9 billion in insurer taxes was not collected in 2017, which saved consumers about 3 percent on premiums.

“However, under current law the moratorium will lapse in 2018 and the tax on health insurance will be reinstated for 2018 at a higher annual level ($14.3 billion), resulting in higher fully-insured premiums for the 2018 plan year and all future years,” the report explained…

Democrats being Democrats

There they go again

Proposing useless laws that will do squat to deter or reduce crime. Of course those are not their aims are they?

Democrats are firm believers in never letting a good crisis go to waste. It’s why they started talking about blocking gun sales to people on the no-fly list after Orlando, despite the shooter not being on the no-fly list, and universal background checks after Sandy Hook, despite that killer stealing his guns. In addition to the disaster that is the current ban on bump-fire stocks bill, House Democrats have pulled some shenanigans of their own.

They think the time is right to ban online ammo sales, standard capacity magazines, and to require dealers to report anyone who buys two or more guns during the same five-day period. In other words, the standard anti-gun wishlist.

House Democrats have introduced a number of new gun control measures in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Among the proposals are HR.3962 to ban online ammunition sales, H.R. 4025 requiring gun dealers to report the sale of two or more rifles to the same person in a five-day period, and HR. 4052, which would ban magazines able to hold greater than 10 rounds.

“Several of my colleagues and I have introduced commonsense legislation that, if enacted, would reduce gun violence and the tragic impact it has on our communities,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, the New Jersey Democrat sponsoring the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.

Coleman’s proposal is much like a state law approved last year by voters in California in the respect that it would require federally licensed ammo dealers to directly confirm the identity of those buying ammo over the Internet by verifying a photo I.D. in-person. Also, the measure would require the vendor to report any individual sales of more than 1,000 rounds in a five-day period to the U.S. Attorney General. Garnering 29 co-sponsors, all Democrat, the measure has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

Unemployment Claims Fall To Lowest Level In 43 Years, Despite Hurricanes – Washington Examiner

The total number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to 1.89 million at the end of September, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, the lowest such mark in nearly 44 years.

And new claims for unemployment benefits dropped 15,000 to 243,000 in the first full week of October, according to the agency, as the job market bounces back from hurricane damage even faster than forecasters expected.

Low new jobless claims are a good sign. They indicate that layoffs are rare, and accordingly that job creation is strong.

Unemployment benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states. Fewer people are now receiving benefits of all duration than at any time since December of 1973, when the total workforce was much smaller. That is a reflection of the strength of the jobs market, and the availability of new positions for laid-off workers…

FBI Forced To Admit It Has 30 Pages Of Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting Documents – PJ Media

The FBI has been forced to admit that it has 30 documents pertaining to that June 2016 meeting between Bill Clinton and former attorney general Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix, after originally claiming to have no such documents.

That seems like a lot of docs for a chance, innocuous meeting about grandkids and golf, doesn’t it?

The FBI admitted to having the Clinton-Lynch tarmac docs only after conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch caught the bureau hiding them in another lawsuit. The FBI is asking for six weeks to produce the documents.

The new docs are being sent to Judicial Watch in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit…

Iran Deal Supporters Are Willing To Sell Out The U.S. To Jihadists – Ben Weingarten

Among the talking points bouncing around the Iran Deal’s devoted echo chamber in the wake of President Trump’s decertification decision is one of proponents’ most honest and simultaneously sordid admissions: The JCPOA means big business for the West. As long as the money is good, let us all pretend we are not subsidizing the world’s leading state sponsor of jihad and protect the pact at all costs.

This position has been echoed implicitly by European officials, who have feverishly lobbied the U.S. against unwinding the Obama administration’s non-treaty in recent weeks.

EU Ambassador to the U.S. David O’Sullivan asserts that if America nixes the JCPOA, “the European Union will act to protect the legitimate interests of our companies.”

“People in Brussels,” O’Sullivan says, “are looking at whether blocking statutes need to be upgraded or updated,” as a means of subverting prospective re-imposed or new U.S. sanctions…

Las Vegas Security Guard Disappears Before TV Interviews – Daily Caller

The security guard shot by Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock has disappeared before five scheduled television appearances as police continue searching for the motives behind the attack.

Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, who has not yet spoken to anyone from the press, was slated to explain his side of the shooting and what exactly he saw in a series of interviews Thursday, but vanished before reporters could ask questions, Fox News reported.

Microsoft Chief: North Korea Stole Cyber Tools From NSA, Carried Out WannaCry Ransomware Attack – RT
.

The head of Microsoft accused North Korea of carrying out the WannaCry cyberattack which crippled 200,000 computers in 150 countries earlier in 2017. Pyongyang used “cyber tools or weapons stolen from the NSA,” the company’s president believes.

Microsoft President Brad Smith told ITV that he believed “with great confidence” that North Korea was behind the worldwide WannaCry cyberattack.

“I think at this point that all observers in the know have concluded that WannaCry was caused by North Korea using cyber tools or weapons that were stolen from the National Security Agency in the United States,” Smith said.

According to Smith, over the last six months the world has “seen threats come to life, in new and more serious way.”…

19 GOP Congressmen Call For Mueller Hearings – Daily Caller

Nineteen Republican congressmen signed on to a letter sent out Friday requesting congressional hearings to keep special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of lawyers accountable.

“This team has sweeping authority and an open-ended mission, yet they are allowed to operate largely in secret, selected by and ultimately accountable to only one person: Mr. Mueller himself,” the letter sent to House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley states.

Texas Republican Rep. Brian Babin started asking his colleagues to sign the letter in August. The congressmen who signed on include: Iowa Rep. Steve King, Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, California Rep. Duncan Hunter and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat.

Leftist Elementary School Bans Halloween Costumes, Institutes ‘Hat Day’ In Name Of Inclusivity – Washington Times

A Wisconsin elementary school is banning children from wearing Halloween costumes during their annual fall parade on Oct. 31, instead instituting “Hat Day” so that all children of different religious and economic backgrounds can participate.

Officials at Hillcrest Elementary School in Waukesha took references to Halloween out of its annual Fall Festival years ago, but that apparently didn’t go far enough this year, a local NBC affiliate reported. Now students are being told they can’t participate in the tradition of wearing their Halloween costumes to the event, because some children were left out.

“We want to be inclusive of all families including those families who don’t celebrate Halloween or find purchasing a costume a hardship,” the school said in a newsletter to parents last week, NBC reported. “Also, there have been behavior and time management concerns related changing into and out of costumes.”

Instead, the school will celebrate “Hat Day” on Halloween, where students are encouraged to wear a “school appropriate hat” and bring a $2 donation for hurricane relief…

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he won’t certify that Iran is complying with the 2015 nuclear agreement, detailing a lengthy list of complaints and vowing to cancel the deal himself if Congress and U.S. allies don’t act to address his concerns about the accord.

Mr. Trump reiterated his opposition to the agreement reached among international powers, declaring his decision after a lengthy denunciation of what he called a “rogue regime” run by radicals.

“Iran is under the control of a fanatical regime,” Mr. Trump said in a speech at the White House, adding it has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.”

Detailing grievances against Iran going back to 1979, the year of the country’s Islamic revolution, Mr. Trump broadly condemned the country’s rulers.

‘Rot In Hell’: South Carolina Airmen Accused Of Vandalizing Church With Satanic Graffiti – WIS

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office arrested a group of Airmen from Shaw Air Force Base on charges that they spray-painted Satanic graffiti on a rural church. According to sheriff’s office, the group members have been identified as Kayla Marie Eilerman, Clayre Marie Savage, Daveion Raaheim Green and Brandon Munoz.

The investigation began on Sept. 29 when a member of the congregation at Salem Black River Church in Mayesville stopped by to check on the church. When they arrived, they found the graffiti on three buildings and a door had been kicked in. However, it appears none of the suspects gained entry. The damage to the church is estimated at $3,000.

Sumter County investigators quickly began to develop leads in the case after photos of the group were released to the media.

“Several tips came in from the community, including from Shaw AFB personnel who gave us the names of possible suspects,” sheriff’s office spokesman Ken Bell said in a statement…

Trump To Cease Using Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Illegal Obamacare Subsidies – Daily Caller

The Trump administration announced Thursday night that it will cease making payments to a subsidy that helps low to moderate income individuals purchase Obamacare health insurance plans.

The U.S. government cannot lawfully continue making the cost-sharing reduction payments (CSRs) that help prop up the Affordable Care Act, the White House announced in a statement. President Donald Trump’s decision to nix CSRs comes after several months of flirting with the idea.

“The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system,” the White House said in a statement announcing the decision. “Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.”

Trump has considered eliminating the CSRs on several occasions, but decided to pull back while an impending lawsuit filed against the president’s predecessor in 2014 made its way through the courts…

Trump Administration: ‘Life Begins At Conception’ – WorldNetDaily

The Department of Health and Human Services has published a draft of a new strategic plan that states in its introduction that life begins at conception.

The personhood of the unborn child is central to the abortion debate – as even the justice who wrote the landmark Roe v. Wade opinion has acknowledged – because, if established in law, it would nullify a “right” to abortion.

The largely overlooked HHS strategic plan for 2018-22 states the agency “accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception.”

U.S. Withdraws From UNESCO, Saying It’s Biased Against Israel – Bloomberg

The Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the United Nations cultural organization, saying it’s biased against Israel and citing its decision to admit the Palestinian territories as a member state.

The decision to quit the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which the U.S. co-founded in 1945, “was not taken lightly,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday. She cited the need for “fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.”

The U.S. hasn’t been paying dues to UNESCO since 2011, when President Barack Obama’s administration stopped providing about $72 million a year after the Paris-based organization accepted Palestine as a full member.

The arrears total almost $543 million, according to UNESCO. U.S. laws bar funding for any UN agency that gives Palestinians the status of a nation, and the U.S. lost its voting privilege in the organization in 2013…

9 Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control For Law-Abiding Americans – Breitbart

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill – put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) – Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill…

When Hillary did finally say something, her words were delivered via a written statement, not on camera where she has lectured us so frequently about how pervasive sexism and misogyny are in America.

The statement on Weinstein’s alleged sexual exploitation and abuse of women issued in Hillary’s name claimed that she was “shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein.” The statement then added Clinton’s standard bromide: “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated…

Pressure From Trump Leads To Pakistan Government Securing Release Of American Family Held Hostage By Terrorists – Washington Free Beacon

The government of Pakistan, under pressure from President Trump to do more against Islamic terrorism, secured the release of an American mother and her family after five years captivity at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Caitlan Coleman, her Canadian husband, and three children, including a very young child, were freed from control of the al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network terrorist group Wednesday night and were in Pakistani government custody awaiting transfer to American officials.

The years’ long hostage case was resolved after the Islamabad government notified the U.S. government several days ago it had located the family and was close to securing their release.

“We’re tremendously grateful to the government of Pakistan for securing the release of Caitlan Coleman and her family,” said a senior official. “The relationship with Pakistan has had its challenges but this is exactly the kind of action that will put the relationship on the right track. This could be a new beginning.”..

Gun Review Time! Springfield Armory XDM Compact in 9mm

I have not done a gun review or late because, well, I have not bought a new firearm recently. But, I decided to get a pistol I have wanted for a while now, and decided to do something I have never done before, that is buy a gun online. I have always been a person who has to handle something, or see it “in person” before I buy it online. But I was familiar with the XDM so, when I saw a great price at Buds Gun Shop, I went for it.

I used Bud’s law a way system, just because I have always enjoyed lay a way, it is just a thing with me. Anyway, Buds shipped my firearm to a local FFL dealer, and I went, did the background check, and bought some ammo, including some personal defense rounds, these to be specific,

wincpics9mmpdb1

I also got some rounds for the range of course.

At home, I found the gun to be, like my Springfield XD Mod 2 subcompact to be stiff, yes, that includes the magazines as well, it come with a 13-round, and a 19-round with a grip extension. But a quick disassembly and light cleaning and oiling, with CLP and the firearm loosened up very well. It is also super easy to disassemble.  As easy as my Sig. Lock the slide back, flip up the takedown lever and release the slide and there you go.

At the range, Shoot Smart, I found the Springfield a blast to shoot. My first shot was a dead center bullseye. Of course after that, I got cocky and had to slow myself down. But in all, I found the trigger excellent, not quite as good as My Ruger SR9c’s trigger, but excellent to me. The sights, fiber optic, were pretty much spot on, and I had a very easy time being accurate, and getting super tight groups when I slowed down just a hair.

Overall, I love this pistol

Irrelevant late-night host Seth Meyers illustrates Leftist bigotry

Seth Meyers, who is as funny as a screen door in a sub-marine, apparently hates you if you voted for Trump. Chalk this up as another example of Leftist “tolerance”

If you are an American who supports President Donald Trump, late night comedian Seth Meyers has a special message for you.

The NBC late-night host echoed rapper Eminem‘s anti-Trump freestyle rant with one of his own, calling on viewers to “get off the fence” and choose whether they support Trump or his show.

“And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this. F*** you!” the famous Detroit rapper told any of his fans who still support the president, as he gave the camera a middle finger.

Meyers found that inspiring.

“Do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him?” he asked “Late Night” viewers.

“My name is Seth and I’m here to say: If you like Trump, then go away,” he said in a mock rap before putting up his middle finger.

See Seth Meyers is better than you if you voted for Trump. Hey that is his show, his business, and for one, I am always heartened when Leftist douchebags speak “truth to power”. It exposes them for the shallow, narrow-minded, knuckle dragging bigots they really are!

And, since we referenced Eminem, let a real hero set that little no talent straight

PARONTO EMINEM BATTLE OF WORDS: KRIS PARONTO’S REPLY

Saw some posts this morning about the candy rapper m&m rapping his opinion … we’ll it swayed me to disrespect the flag 🇺🇸 and follow the opinion of the ex 49’er QB and kneel during the pledge of allegiance disrespecting all who served ……….wait, no it didn’t 😏😏.

If I want advice on how to commit domestic abuse, live in excess, disrespect the masses as well as lessons on ungratefulness I’ll listen to m&m and the NFL players. Until then I’ll wear my shirt with pride throughout my travels and continue to stand for the flag and pledge of allegiance for this great nation.

I’ll be damned if I let anyone including adolescent athletes and pop culture crybabies turn this symbol 🇺🇸 of freedom and courage ,who many of my teammates, families and friends sacrificed for , into a symbol of oppression and bigotry. The only bigots & racists I have seen throughout this are from the “kneelers” and their supporters. For hell’s sake I even saw a post stating that those that support the 🇺🇸 are the ones who burn crosses 🤦🏻‍♂️… really??!!

You have to be a special kind of stupid for that view, guess my Latino cross burning crew will need to get our torches ready for tonight🙄🙄. Like me or not for saying this , I could give a shit, unfollow me , I won’t lose a wink of sleep . I’ll continue standing for this great country , for freedom, for honor, for courage, and sacrifice and the symbol 🇺🇸 this represents. So I’m crossing your line in the sand killer @eminem🙄😏

So, I guess all there is left to say is keep those jaws flapping leftists!
