Crazed Leftist Charged With Threatening To Assassinate Trump Is Close Family Friend Of Clintons – Daily Mail

The man arrested by Miami Beach police Tuesday for allegedly threatening President-elect Donald Trump online is a member of a prominent northeast family close to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

He once gave $20,000 to the Democratic National Committee, DailyMail.com has learned.

Suspect Dominic Puopolo Jr., 51, sat near Hillary Clinton when she delivered the eulogy at the funeral of Puopolo’s mother, Sonia, who died in one of the jets that flew into the World Trade Center on 9-11.

During that eulogy on Oct. 6, 2001 in Boston, the former presidential candidate referred to ‘Dom Jr.’s latest computer wizardry.’

The ‘wizard’ is now being held in a Miami-Dade County jail after using Twitter to threaten Trump’s life.

Trump is scheduled to be sworn in Friday in Washington, D.C. as Puopolo remains incarcerated on a charge of threatening to harm a public servant.

Puopolo reportedly admitted to posting a video to Twitter, saying: ‘This is the 16th of January 2017, I will be at the review/ inauguration and I will kill President Trump, President elect Trump today.’

He was nabbed after leaving a Washington Avenue Subway sandwich shop about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Puopolo, however, may not be the average Trump hater.

On various social media platforms, where he posts as JesusChrist1701, the computer consultant claims to have testified in terror cases as an expert witness in a German federal court in Hamburg from 2003 to 2008…

Body Of Missing Mother Of Two Found In Suitcase In Leicester Alleyway – Daily Mail

Police have named a suspected murder victim whose body was found in a suitcase.

The remains of Next call centre worker Kiran Daudia were discovered dumped in an alleyway in Evington, Leicester, on Tuesday morning.

A 50-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of Mrs Daudia’s murder has now been charged with the offence.

Ashwin Daudia, of Lyme Road, Leicester, will appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday morning.

Police have appealed for witnesses who may have seen anyone pulling a suitcase in the area in the late afternoon or early evening of Monday, to come forward.

Details of the suitcase in which the body was found, such as its make or colour, have also not been revealed. However police have confirmed the suitcase had wheels.

A post-mortem examination is set to be carried out to determine how Mrs Daudia, who had worked for retail giant Next for over 17 years and is thought to have two adult sons, died.

In a statement her devastated family said: ‘Kiran was a much loved mum, daughter, sister and auntie, and she will be deeply missed by us all.

‘We ask that our privacy be respected during this very difficult time.’

A member of the public made the discovery of 46-year-old Mrs Daudia’s body in an alleyway between two terraced homes.

Forensic officers carried out a number of searches after the grim find, and doo–to-door enquires were carried out in the area…

CBS Finally Treats ‘Pizzagate’ Like A Real News Story – Your News Wire

CBS claims that the Pizzagate story, which suggests an elite pedophile ring operates out of Washington DC, is real and needs to be investigated by the FBI.

According to CBS host Ben Swann, evidence collected by alternative media researchers provides “compelling evidence” that high level government officials such as John Podesta and Hillary Clinton may be connected to some kind of child sex scandal – a claim the alternative media have been making for months.

Ben uploaded his segment to his Facebook page on Tuesday, asking the very good question “why is no one investigating this?“

The answer to this question is that like so many scandals involving the elite – a huge cover-up is likely underway in which the elites in government, media and law enforcement are trying to bury this story as deep as possible and keep it from public view…

Obama Scores The Worst Legislative Record In History – Washington Times

President Obama oversaw the deepest legislative malaise in modern political history, according to the Washington Times Legislative Index, which captures his struggles to find ways to work with a Congress that ranged from lukewarm to openly hostile toward him.

Over the course of his eight years, he has signed just 1,227 bills into law – less, even, than one-term Presidents Carter and George H.W. Bush. Digging deeper into the numbers, Congress spent less time in session, handled fewer business on the chamber floors and generally sputtered for much of Mr. Obama’s tenure, according to The Times’ index.

Blame for the poor showing falls across Washington. Some analysts say a Congress with four years of divided control hamstrung Mr. Obama, while others say the president failed to find ways to work with the legislature that voters gave him – particularly after the 2010 elections.

“The president was never good at reaching across the aisle. So when the composition of Congress changed relative to what it was in his first two years, he wasn’t able to accommodate that very well,” said Andrew Busch, a presidential scholar at Claremont McKenna College in California. “He never accustomed himself to operating in a system where he was not the sole player.”

It’s all the more stunning for Mr. Obama having emerged from the legislature himself, having served first in the Illinois Statehouse and then in the U.S. Senate, where he spent two years in a Republican-controlled Congress and two years in a Democrat-run Congress…

Nutbag Feminist Exposes Her Breasts During Unveiling Of Trump Exhibit At Wax Museum – Universal Free Press

What is it with feminists taking off their shirts as a form of protest? This time the boob bomb happened in Madrid, as in Spain, at the Museo de Cera de Madrid, a wax museum, at the unveiling of a statue of American President-elect Donald Trump. The strumpet, uh, feminist reportedly with the group Femen crashed the ceremony with “Grab the patriarchy by the balls” painted on her back, and proceeded to do just that to the statue.

President Asshat Commutes Sentence Of Unrepentant Marxist Terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera – Right Wing News

Obama came into office as the antidote to all those irritating flags liberals had to look at after 9/11. He was elected as the quintessential “other,” a guy who sees himself as a Citizen of the World, who conspicuously does not like America, and who promised to redeem us for our alleged sins against political correctness by bringing us down a few notches vis-à-vis other countries. With just a few days left of his disgraceful presidency, he continues to deliver. Commuting the sentence of a traitor who should have been executed wasn’t enough; he has done the same for vicious Marxist terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera:

With Obama’s commutation, Lopez, 74, will leave prison by May 17.

Like other sociopathic maniacs who have gone out of their way to deserve the death penalty (e.g., Mumia Abu-Jamal, Tookie Williams), Lopez is a cause célèbre among left-wing extremists.

Former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Francis and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois’ 4th district supported his release, as did South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Here is how Lopez won their hearts:

Lopez was a leader of FALN, the Spanish acronym for the Armed Forces of National Liberation. He was found guilty in U.S. District Court in Chicago in 1981 of weapons, explosives and seditious conspiracy charges, and sentenced to 55 years in prison. He received an additional 15 years in 1988 after he was convicted of plotting to escape from federal prison.

FALN’s goal was a free [from America, Puerto Rican voters be damned] and socialist Puerto Rico. The group was primarily active in New York and Chicago and claimed responsibility for more than 140 bombings since 1974. Authorities connected five deaths to the bomb blasts. Another 100 people were maimed by the bombings, authorities said…

Obama’s EPA Disasters Highlighted During Scott Pruitt’s Confirmation Hearing – Townhall

The tables were turned on the Democrats during Wednesday’s Senate hearing for Environmental Protection Agency nominee and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt.

During the opening remarks, Senate Environment and Public Works Chairman John Barrasso (R) berated Barack Obama and intrusive EPA policies during his time in office.

“The regulatory zeal of the last eight years has violated a fundamental principle of environmental stewardship, which is ‘do no harm,’” Barrasso said. “This failed environmental leadership has contributed to two of the worst government-created environmental disasters in decades: the Gold King Mine spill, and Flint, Michigan’s water crisis.”

However, Pruitt did say that he doesn’t believe climate change is a hoax…

Religion Of Peace Update: Mali Suicide Bomber Kills At Least 60 – Toronto Star

A suicide bomber in an explosives-laden vehicle attacked a camp in northern Mali on Wednesday, killing at least 60 people and wounding 115 soldiers and former fighters who are trying to stabilize the region. The attack marked a significant setback for peace efforts.

Suspicion quickly fell on the Islamic extremist groups operating in the area which oppose the 2015 peace agreement that brought the parties together. A Mauritanian news agency that frequently receives communications from extremist groups, Alakhbar, said a group linked to al-Qaeda’s North Africa branch, al-Mourabitoun, had claimed responsibility.

The morning blast hit the Joint Operational Mechanism base in the city of Gao, home to Malian soldiers and hundreds of former fighters who signed the peace agreement with the government. Witnesses said the car breached the camp as hundreds of fighters were gathering for a meeting.

The office of Mali’s president late Wednesday put the provisional death toll at 60, with 115 wounded.

Dr. Sadou Maiga at Gao’s hospital told The Associated Press that all other hospital activities had ceased with dozens of wounded victims arriving.

“Some have died from their wounds, and others are in a very grave state,” he said. “At this point, it’s not the toll of dead and injured that interests me, it’s saving who I can.”

The attack underscores the enormous challenges that remain in northern Mali four years after the French military led an intervention to drive the jihadists from power in the major towns across the north. The peace agreement has proved difficult to implement…

11th-Hour Screwjob: Obama Regime Throws Another $500 Million Down UN Global Warming Rathole – CNS

The State Department on Tuesday announced it has transferred a further $500 million to a U.N.-affiliated global climate change fund whose congressional critics have derided as a ‘slush fund” and “handout to foreign bureaucrats.”

The move comes three days before the inauguration of a president who pledged days before his election victory to “cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations” and devote funds instead to “environmental infrastructure” at home.

The $500 million is the second transfer to the Green Climate Fund, whose aim is to help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to occurrences blamed on climate change such as rising sea-levels and drought.

President Obama pledged $3 billion to the GCF over four years, and a first instalment, also $500 million, was paid last March.

Critics in Congress at the time charged that the disbursement was a waste of taxpayers’ money, and pointed out that Congress had not authorized or appropriated any funding for the GCF.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), who has led the criticism, on Tuesday called the latest payment “an insult to American taxpayers.”

“The hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars the Obama administration spent on the United Nations Green Climate Fund were never approved by Congress,” he said.

“The Obama administration is now sending this slush fund another $500 million in its final days in the White House,” Barrasso added…

Creepy Video Shows Attorney Attempting To Put Woman Into Trance For Sexual Gratification – Law Newz

An incredibly creepy video has been released showing portions of a police sting involving an Ohio lawyer who pleaded guilty last year to hypnotizing clients for his own sexual pleasure.

The video was obtained by a local Ohio news outlet and shows attorney Michael Fine hypnotizing a woman during a 2014 appointment with a client seeking a divorce.

“Let’s take a deep breath… one more time. Ok, I gotta calm down, let’s do this together,” Fine says to the unidentified woman.

He continues, “Each time I say the word sleep, you’re gonna go deeper and deeper, ten times deeper. One, two, three, sleep… one, two, three sleep.”

Fine was disbarred and pleaded guilty to charges in 2016 of putting five other women into trances for his own sexual gratification…

Trump Eyes 10% Spending Cuts, 20% Slash Of Federal Workers – Washington Examiner

Making good on a promise to slash government, President-elect Trump has asked his incoming team to pursue spending and staffing cuts.

Insiders said that the spending reductions in some departments could go as high as 10 percent and staff cuts to 20 percent, numbers that would rock Washington if he follows through.

At least two so-called “landing teams” in Cabinet agencies have relayed the call for cuts as part of their marching orders to shrink the flab in government.

The cuts would target discretionary spending, not mandated programs such as Medicare or Social Security, the sources said.

The spending reductions are expected to be used to help pay for Trump’s plan to boost the Pentagon’s budget, tax cuts and some pet projects, potentially including the anti-immigration wall on the nation’s southern border.

The teams also are looking at staffing cuts over four years through attrition, a hiring freeze and reorganization.

The plan is winning cheers in conservative, anti-tax and anti-spending corners in Washington that have long sought massive cuts in the bureaucracy.

Presidents rarely cut spending, choosing freezes instead. In the meantime, federal spending has reached historic levels. Trump has picked a budget hawk, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, to head the Office of Management and Budget, a clear sign that spending cuts are a top priority.

Still, Trump is likely to face a wall of opposition from Democrats and federal unions who consider much of the federal workforce on their side…

2nd Project Veritas Video Released: What Leftists Are Planning For Trump’s Inauguration Is Way Worse Than We Thought – Freedom Daily

Liberals are truly the most vile people on the face of the planet. Several days ago, we learned from Project Veritas’ undercover video that leftists were plotting to set off acid attacks to disrupt the Deploraball, an event to be held in honor of Trump’s Inauguration. Now a second video has been released, and it’s much worse than any of us could’ve ever imagined.

While we can dismiss many of the liberals’ antics as juvenile, now that Trump is about to become president, they’re stepping up their game to pull off stunts that are terroristic in nature. Now their grand plans include not only acid attacks, but attacking the public transit system in Washington D.C. as a way to shut down the entire city.

Assange Lawyer: Manning Commutation Doesn’t Meet Extradition Offer’s Conditions – The Hill

The attorney for Julian Assange said President Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence does not meet the conditions of the WikiLeaks head’s offer to be extradited to the United States if Manning were pardoned.

Obama on Tuesday commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, leading many to wonder whether that meant Assange was ready to surrender to the Department of Justice.

“Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning’s sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought,” said Barry Pollack, Assange’s U.S.-based attorney, via email.

“Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately.”

Assange has not been publicly charged with a crime in the United States, but his legal team believes he may be charged “under seal,” where charges are kept secret to prevent a suspect from preparing an escape.

Assange first offered in September to trade extradition to the U.S. for a pardon for Manning. He reiterated the claim as recently as last week on Twitter.

“If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case,” tweeted WikiLeaks’s official account on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the White House denied that tweet had anything to do with commuting Manning’s sentence…

President Barack Obama granted clemency to Chelsea Manning on Tuesday, allowing the transgender Army intelligence officer convicted of leaking more than 700,000 U.S. documents to go free nearly three decades early.

Embracing his clemency powers days before leaving office, Obama also pardoned 64 individuals including retired Gen. James Cartwright, charged with making false statements during another leak probe. Manning was one of 209 inmates with sentences commuted by Obama, who has now granted more commutations than any other president in history.

Neil Eggleston, Obama’s White House counsel, said the individuals would learn “that our nation is a forgiving nation, where hard work and a commitment to rehabilitation can lead to a second chance, and where wrongs from the past will not deprive an individual of the opportunity to move forward.”…

Trump Effect: Hyundai-Kia To Spend $3.1 Billion In U.S. Over 5 Years – Detroit News

Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. said they will spend $3.1 billion in the U.S. in the next five years, joining other vehicle manufacturers in announcing investment plans amid threats from President-elect Donald Trump of higher levies on auto imports from Mexico.

The planned U.S. investment by South Korea’s two largest automakers is about 50 percent more than the $2.1 billion they spent in the previous five-year period, Hyundai Motor President Chung Jin-haeng told reporters in Seoul on Tuesday. The group is considering building a new factory in the U.S. and may produce Hyundai Motor’s upscale Genesis vehicles and a U.S.-specific SUV in the country, said the executive, who also oversees the strategic planning for Kia.

“We expect a boost in the U.S. economy and increased demand for various models as President-elect Trump follows through on his promise to create one million jobs in five years,” Chung said. “We will actively consider introducing new models that have increasing demand and profits.”

Hyundai Motor and Kia join a growing list of automakers announcing investments in the U.S., even though they have yet to be singled out by Trump. Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said this month they’ll spend on U.S. plants after the president-elect threatened for months to slap Mexico-built vehicles with a 35 percent import tax. Carmakers are eager to cooperate with the incoming administration as they prepare to ask for favors including weaker fuel economy rules and lower corporate taxes…

Man Accused Of Driving 132 MPH On Turnpike, Crashing Into Garbage Truck – Orlando Sentinel

A 20-year-old Clermont man driving more than 130 mph on Florida’s Turnpike crashed into a garbage truck Tuesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Daniele Heller was driving south on the turnpike near West Colonial Drive in Orange County “at a high rate of speed” about 8:20 a.m. Witnesses told FHP troopers he drove onto the left shoulder of the road to pass a car but lost control of his 2013 Nissan, FHP spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Heller hit the center barrier wall on the turnpike, Montes said, then struck a garbage truck driven by 60-year-old Carlos Guivas of Deltona.

Heller suffered minor injuries, Montes said. Guivas was not injured.

Earlier Tuesday morning, an FHP trooper clocked Heller at 132 mph, Montes said. The trooper said it looked like Heller was racing another car before the crash. That vehicle was not found.

Heller was arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on a reckless driving charge. His bond is set at $500, according to jail records…

MLK III Refuses To Take Parasitic CNN Reporter’s Bait, Attack Trump – American Mirror

All the media wanted Martin Luther King III to do today was attack Donald Trump.

He refused to take the bait.

Raw video from the King’s brief appearance before the press in Trump Tower shows reporters – including CNN’s Jim Acosta – asking loaded questions in a vain attempt to get Martin Luther King, Jr.’s son to criticize the president-elect.

Each time, he refused.

After saying he had a “very constructive” meeting with Trump about the voting system and the Voting Rights Act, members of the media completely ignored his statement and trolled for scandal.

“As you know, Rep. Lewis still has the scars from the march on Selma. Were you offended by the president-elect’s tweet that Rep. Lewis is all talk and no action?” one reporter asked.

King avoided attacking Trump.

“In the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides,” he responded.

“Many African-Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency,” another reporter said, before telling King a woman told him Trump would have black people “up against the wall, both literally and figuratively.

“Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, both black and white?”

King defended Trump. “He said he’s going to represent all Americans, ” but added “we will continue to evaluate that.”…

President Asshat Names Iran Deal Salesman To Holocaust Memorial Council – The Hill

President Obama on Tuesday appointed deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, part of a slew of appointments given to high-profile staff and supporters in the final days of his presidency.

Rhodes, whose mother is Jewish, played a key role in shaping Obama’s foreign policy during his eight years in the White House.

He also came under fire from some U.S. Jewish groups for his role in selling the Iran nuclear deal and the administration’s decision to allow a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity to pass the U.N. Security Council.

Congress created the council in 1980 to boost awareness of the Nazi genocide and raise money for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Presidential appointees serve five-year terms and make up some of the 68-member board, which also includes lawmakers and Cabinet officials.

The president also named senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and national security adviser Susan Rice to the Kennedy Center board of trustees.

The postings, made in the final days of Obama’s presidency, are something of a parting gift to longtime staff and supporters.

Rhodes, Jarrett and Rice all served in the White House throughout Obama’s entire presidency.
