.

.

Walker signed the legislation, which passed along party lines in February, at a local distributor of construction materials in De Pere, Wis., according to the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

Leftist Ossoff Fails To Garner 50% Of Vote In Georgia Special Election, Faces Handel In June Runoff – Breitbart

It was a photo finish in the “jungle primary” special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District on Tuesday to select a replacement for Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), punctuated by unusual technical reporting delays from Fulton County, the largest county in the district.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, thirty-year-old Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff fell just short of the 50-percent-plus-one vote total he needed to avoid a June runoff with the GOP’s Karen Handel, the former Georgia Secretary of State who finished in a distant second.

CNN declared the race a runoff between Ossoff and Handel shortly after midnight.

At 12:09 a.m. President Trump tweeted, “Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, Big “R” win with runoff in Georgia. Glad to be of help!”

With 177 of 210 precincts reporting as of 12:25 a.m. eastern on Wednesday morning, the Associated Press results had Ossoff in first place with 49 percent of the vote, followed by the GOP’s Karen Handel in second at 19 percent, and the GOP’s Bob Gray in third place and out of the runoff election with 10 percent…

Former Trump Advisor To Sue Obama Regime Officials For Civil Rights Violations – Law Newz
.

.
The FBI case into former Donald Trump campaign advisor Carter Page just took another legal twist. CNN is reporting that the FBI used that infamous Trump dossier as part of “the justification” to convince a FISA court to issue a warrant allowing them to secretly monitor Page. The investigation is reportedly probing possible ties between the one-time Trump advisor and Russia.

But, what is particularly interesting from a legal stand point is Page’s reaction to this latest development. Apparently, he’s now planning on taking the Obama officials to court. He said in a statement:

“I look forward to the Privacy Act of 1974 lawsuit that I plan to file in response to the civil rights violations by Obama administration appointees last year. The discovery process will be of great value to the United States, as our nation hears testimony from them under oath, and we receive disclosure of the documents which show what exactly was done in 2016.”…

Claremont Snowflakes Write Hairbrained Open Letter Characterizing Truth As A ‘Myth’ – PJ Media

Campus snowflakes are at war with reality.

That is the only way to read an open letter written by three students who say the idea of objective truth is a “myth” designed to “silence oppressed peoples.” The authors, Dray Denson, Avery Jonas, and Shanaya Stephenso, along with over twenty co-signers, are demanding that all five Claremont Colleges “take action” against the conservative journalists on the staff of The Claremont Independent, presumably for reporting facts that make them feel unsafe.

The letter – which reads like something from The Onion but is sadly all too real – was written to outgoing Pomona College President David Oxtoby in response to his April 7 email espousing the college’s commitment to “the exercise of free speech and academic freedom.” Oxtoby’s email came in the wake of protests that shut down an April 6 speaking appearance by conservative scholar and author Heather Mac Donald.

“Protest has a legitimate and celebrated place on college campuses,” Oxtoby wrote…

ISIS And Al Qaeda In Talks To Join Forces, Iraqi Vice President Says – Fox News

Iraq’s vice president said rival terror groups ISIS and Al Qaeda are exchanging ideas on ways to join forces.

Vice President Ayad Allawi told Reuters he got the information from contacts in Iraq and the region. He did not reveal more specific details about the source of his information. Allawi said the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the head of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, are not communicating with each other directly but through intermediaries.

“I don’t know exactly when, but there are discussions and dialogues between messengers,” he said, adding that it’s not clear how the two groups will work together.

The Islamic State, which made territorial gains in Mosul and parts of northern Iraq, has more recently been pushed out of much of the region under pressure from an international coalition that includes the United States.

Despite losing ground, the group still controls areas in Mosul’s Old City, where the narrow streets have slowed coalition forces….

House Ways And Means Committee Chairman Calls For DOJ To Investigate Lois Lerner – Breitbart
.

.
The chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee called on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to review evidence that Lois Lerner “broke the law to target Americans for their political beliefs.” The request comes after the DOJ refused, under the Obama Administration’s leadership, to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by the former IRS Exempt Organizations Division director.

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), joined by Tax Police Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL), sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting an investigation into allegations that Lerner used her division’s power to target American citizens’ applications for non-profit status, or political action committees, based upon the citizen’s political beliefs.

“Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics,” the two chairmen wrote in the letter obtained by Breitbart Texas. “We respectfully request the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.”…

Judicial Watch Sues ATF For Attempting To Reclassify AR-15 Ammo As ‘Armor-Piercing’ – Conservative Base

A top nonprofit government watchdog group of attorneys filed a lawsuit last week seeking documents related to citizens’ Second-Amendment rights being violated by a federal agency, according to a press statement released .

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the already disgraced Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice, seeks records of communications about a so-called “reclassification” that would restrict the sale and possession of certain types of AR-15 ammunition by classifying them as being “armor-piercing” and therefore illegal for civilians. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Judicial Watch, an organization that investigates and exposes government corruption, fraud and misconduct by using the federal civil court system.

The ATF is reportedly reconsidering its February 2015 proposal to revise the 2014 Regulation Guide regarding the reclassification of certain ammunition…

Former Hubbard, Ohio mayor Richard Keenan, who now admits to raping a young child, is facing life behind bars.

He was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.

In an initiative to “combat Islamophobia and the bullying of Muslims students,” San Diego’s public school district has formed a partnership with an organization regarded by the FBI as a front group for Hamas and by an Gulf Arab state as a terrorist organization.

Unions Spent $1.7 Billion On Mostly Leftist Politicians In 2016 – Washington Free Beacon

Organized labor spent a record $1.7 billion on politics and lobbying during the 2016 election cycle, with the vast majority of money coming from member dues and supporting Democrats.

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), a nonprofit union watchdog, found that unions spent $1.713 billion on political activities and lobbying. The watchdog group analyzed federal labor filings that disclose how much unions spend on political activities at the federal, state, and local level, as well as Federal Election Commission records collected by OpenSecrets.com.

Stan Greer, the researcher behind the study, said 75 percent of the money spent on politics came from union treasuries rather than campaign PACs or other independent union-backed political operations.

“Big Labor is increasingly turning its focus away from workplace matters and more and more towards buying political influence,” Greer said in a statement.

NILRR has tracked union political spending throughout the 21st century, finding that unions have significantly ramped up their spending in the last four years…
