Governor of Texas: Hell no to sanctuary cities and campuses in Texas

I am very proud to live in Texas, and very proud of our governor, Greg Abbott for his ideological clarity in standing up to the special snowflakes who think borders are silly and racist

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has no sympathy for the sanctuary campus movement, declaring his intention to cut funding for any state school that attempts to make itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.

In a series of tweets posted on the Republican governor’s account, Abbott assured concerned constituents that “Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities,” vowing multiple times that he will cut funding for any state entity that attempts such a plot, which the City of Austin and the University of Texas system have pledged to do.

“Follow the law in Texas. No sanctuary cities. Period,” he added, later appearing on Fox News to defend his stance on the issue.

One of the most cherished dreams of the Left is to do away with borders, national sovereignty, and most of all, America. The left wishes us all to be “equal” you see. Rather than helping countries improve by emulating the United States, and other capitalist nations, the Left always seeks to tear down the United States because “inequality”. It is not “fair” that America is stronger and more successful! So, America must share its success by eliminating its borders. Again because “inequality”. If America offers greater opportunities because of our economic system, then we must throw open our borders to allow people from less successful nations in. This, of course is madness.

If the Left were truly seeking to help Latin American nations they would encourage them to be more like the United States. They would push them to throw off Communism, and corruption, and replace those with free enterprise, and greater liberty for the people. That is how nations succeed, by not standing in the way of ambition and competition. The fact is the more freedom a nation has, the more successful its people will be. But, of course, improving less successful nations is not the Left’s real goal is it? No, because there will still be inequality you see. The egalitarian left cannot not stand that. They seek equality, period! It does not matter if everyone does better in America to them. All they see is America somehow “stealing” from less prosperous nations. America has too much, they say, as if there is only so much prosperity. That is not fair so America must stop being America.

There will always be inequality, of course, it is the natural course of life. And, the fact is this, inequality is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, inequality in application of laws and natural rights is very bad. The Left, however, fights to redistribute wealth, and to “level” the playing field. This is a fool’s errand. There is no level playing field in the real world. There is only competition, innovation, and differing levels of success, and yes, failures. You cannot change that reality by trying to force some unattainable, one size fits all equality onto successful nations. Nor can you do it by destroying nations by destroying borders.

People are not meant to be equal, they are individuals, unique, different, and crushing individualism by empowering governments to mandate some false equality will never attain anything of worth. And the only equality you will ever achieve will be an equality of depravity.

The Six Things Donald Trump MUST Do As President

APPOINT AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO WILL PROSECUTE HILLARY CLINTON
Hillary Clinton represents everything that is wrong with the American political class. She epitomizes establishment corruption and wanton criminality, and to ignore her blatantly felonious behavior is to condone it.

REPEAL & REPLACE OBAMACARE
Of all the ruinous policies enacted by the previous administration, none is so egregious and universally despised as The Affordable Care Act. It must be eradicated like the cancer that it is and replaced with a free-market-based alternative as soon as humanly possible.

BUILD THE WALL
This is the primary reason why Donald Trump was elected president, make no mistake about it, and while its construction will not, in and of itself, put an end to illegal immigration, it will symbolize a seriousness of intent with respect to border security that has been sorely lacking in our government for decades.

APPOINT ORIGINALISTS TO THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY
When it comes to our nation’s highest courts, there are essentially two types of judges who oversee them, originalists and activists. Activistic judges believe that our Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that they are free to modify from the bench at any time and for any reason they concoct. As for originalist judges, I think Justice Antonin Scalia put it best when he said: “Our manner of interpreting the Constitution is to begin with the text, and to give that text the meaning that it bore when it was adopted by the people.”

SLASH TAXES ON BUSINESS & RENEGOTIATE INTERNATIONAL TRADE DEALS
Reinvigorating the U.S. economy cannot occur without radically reducing taxes on the companies which make up its foundation. Business taxes amount to taxes on all Americans – be they CEOs, employees, stockholders or consumers – and trillions of dollars have been lost to our economy over the years due to government’s insistence on inflicting punitive taxation upon our nation’s most productive citizens. Adding insult to injury, pro-globalist trade policies like NAFTA have served to accelerate the decline of America’s economic vitality, and any attempts to reverse the trends of the past few decades without addressing these key points will prove futile.

DRASTICALLY CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING & REGULATION
Cutting government spending begins with downsizing the bureaucracies infesting it. This can be done through attrition, which simply means not hiring new federal employees to replace the ones who retire for an extended period of time. Beyond that, there are scores of agencies which should be eliminated entirely, like the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Housing & Urban Development, and the EPA for starters. Furthermore, federal regulations have become so pervasive that reducing their number by 50 percent would still leave the Federal Register with nearly 100,000 pages of growth-killing rules. Yes, certain regulatory powers must be exercised in order to stop bad people from doing harm to the rest of us, but when nanny-state know-it-alls in Washington DC decide to start telling the rest of us how much water we can use to flush our toilets or what sort of bulbs we can screw into our light fixtures, they’ve engaged in the sort of conduct that our founding fathers would have taken up arms to oppose.

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of a Hillary Presidency is………

What would Hillary’s immigration stance be? No, I am not referring to a “wall” that is never going to get built anyway, no matter which party s in power. I am not even wondering about our Southern border, which is a crucial issue. No, my biggest concern is immigration by refugees. Refugees whose values are simply incompatible with American values. Daniel Greenfield has similar concerns

The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder.

And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart.

What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?

New Jersey has the second largest Muslim population in the country. This isn’t the first time it was used as a staging ground for Muslim terror.

11 of the 19 September 11 hijackers hung out in Paterson (known colloquially as Paterstine). Head toward Jersey City and you can see where Muslim enemies of this country stood on rooftops and cheered the attacks on September 11. It’s also where the World Trade Center bombing mastermind and the Blind Sheikh who provided religious guidance for a proposed wave of Islamic terror operated.

Go south and in Elizabeth you can pass the First American Fried Chicken joint where the Rahami clan made life miserable for their American neighbors before one of their spawn began his bombing spree.

New Jersey is a map of Muslim terror plots because of its huge Muslim population.

Ahmad Khan Rahami came to America as the son of an Afghan refugee. He stabbed a man two years ago. His family was a local nuisance who cried “Islamophobia” at the least provocation. His brother was a Jihadi sympathizer and may have fled the country after assaulting a police officer. By the time Ahmad was done, he had wounded a police officer and 29 other people. If his plot had succeeded, he might have pulled off the largest Muslim terror atrocity in the country since September 11.

And of course Minnesota has similar issues

Minnesota has suffered from the presence of the largest Somali migrant population in the country. And so a state which used to be known for its Swedish and German immigrants instead became a recruiting ground for ISIS and Al-Shabab. Al-Shabab, which is aligned with Al Qaeda, attacked the Westgate mall in Kenya a few years ago. The Somali killers quizzed their victims to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims.

Dahir Adan, the Somali Muslim migrant who invaded America from a refugee camp in Kenya, attempted to duplicate that attack, asking those he stabbed at the Crossroads Mall if they were Muslims.

Dozens of Somali migrants in America have joined Al-Shabab and ISIS. The only difference between Dahir Adan and them is that instead of getting on a plane back to his native Somalia to join the local Jihadists, he carried out his Jihad against the nighttime shoppers in a Macy’s.

The Crossroads attack was the tragic price paid by innocent people for Muslim refugee resettlement.

Muslim Somali migration dramatically increased under Obama, rising from 2,500 in 2008 to around 8,000 and 9,000 in the last few years. Somali settlers represent almost 1 percent of the population of Minnesota. Most of the “refugees” dumped in St. Cloud were Somalis migrants and Lutheran Social Services has taken the lead in inflicting Somalis on the unfortunate natives of St. Cloud.

From the very beginning of their arrival, the Somali colonists were a problem for the people of St. Cloud. They displaced American workers and clashed with the native population. In this decade, St. Cloud has become 10% Somali. The Crossroads attack was the inevitable result of that demographic growth.

What happened in New Jersey and Minnesota is the same thing that has been happening in Europe. Islamic terrorism is caused by Muslim migration. As the Muslim population grows, so does its terror.

Yes, just like Europe. well, Europe has it far worse, for now, because it has been more heavily engaged in allowing mass immigration of people who, again, hold very different values than the West does. Yes, Europe has it worse, for now. But Europe also grants us a preview what is to come. And that will be sooner rather than later given the Left thirst for more refugees, more Muslim refugees to be specific. The fact is the American Left is turning a blind eye to reality. Anyone who writes what Greenfield writes will be blasted as a bigot, as Islamophobic, or intolerant. Facts be damned, what we see in Europe be damned. We must have tolerance, or at least the Left’s perverse definition of tolerance in America. Even if it kills some, or many of us. 

The fact is, there are numerous reasons for our government, yes both parties turning a blind eye to illegal immigration. Some are economic, some are, based on the Left’s version of fairness. But at the heart of both illegal immigration, and the influx of Muslim “refugees” is the Left’s hatred of American sovereignty. If the Left believes anything at all, it believes America must be broken and remade. America was founded on every value and principle the Left abhors. Individual liberty, natural rights, free markets are all despised by the Left, which is Collectivist in nature. So, anything that alters America is and will be supported by the Left.

Immigration, of course is not the problem. Immigration sand assimilation IS the problem. The Left, of course sees assimilation as a bad thing. After all, bringing in immigrants who share America’s  Judeo-Christian values, and love of Individualism will not change America will it? Stressing assimilation is never going to really change what America is. Of course not. Your religion, or skin color do not matter so much if you share the basic American values of free markets, individual liberty, respect for the rights of others and self-determination. So, assimilation is undesirable according to the Left. Again, the Left is using immigration, both legal and illegal to change, yes fundamentally change America.

This issue, to me might be the most crucial reason we must never elect Hillary Clinton. We know what her immigration positions will be. Hillary is of the Left, she shares their values, and she will seek to do everything in her power to continue the Obama administration disastrous refugee and immigration policies. And yes, her policies will lead to more, not fewer terror attacks. If you do not believe me ask France how its immigration policies are working out. Or ask Germany, or Sweden. Of course, we must also consider how a President Hillary would respond to increased acts of Jihad. She would likely blame America, who else? And she would be certain to use such attacks to increase pressure for stricter gun laws, which would make us less safer still. She would likely lead a charge to punish “anti-Muslim” speech as well. Again, she, and the Left would eagerly use such a situation to further push their ultimate goal of altering America. Remember, the Left never allows a good crisis to, well you know the rest!

Well, this makes me feel better about our national security

It would seem Team Obama loves releasing dangerous people to prey upon decent Americans

The Obama administration, forced to cut spending under the congressional sequester, ordered immigration officials to slash jailed illegals by over 5,000, including some accused of “terroristic threats,” drunk driving, drug and gun possession and sexual assault, according to newly revealed emails.

Ah, those mean Republicans “forced” the releases because “spending cuts”. So, Team Obama could not find anywhere else to cut? Where are their priorities? I think we know

Hundreds of emails obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Instituteunder a Freedom of Information Act demand showed urgent demands from Washington to Immigration and Customs Enforcement outposts around the country to release illegals after the 2013 sequester went into effect.

The administration tried to prioritize non-criminal illegals for release, but pressure to move fast prompted the release of criminals. Several illegal immigrants detained for terrorist activities were cited in release emails obtained by the Institute.

Again, there was no where else they could have cut? No, no, of course not because optics

“These emails make it crystal clear that the administration was more concerned with the political optics of its immigration enforcement efforts than with its duty to keep Americans safe from criminal and illegal aliens,” said FAIR spokesman Dave Ray. “Unfortunately, some American families paid the ultimate price – the loss of a loved one – for this political theater.”

President Obama’s immigration policies have been plagued with violence and even murder by illegal aliens released from jails instead of being deported.

And the best part? Hillary will be just as bad, if not worse

Newt Gingrich is right about Sharia Law, and why he is short-sighted

Yes, of course, anyone with even the remotest grasp on reality will condemn Sharia Law as not only incompatible with Western values, but as evil as well. Sharia is nothing more than another barbaric totalitarian system that crushes human liberty.

So, yes, I would completely support a ban on the immigration of any Sharia supporter to our nation. I would also support the expulsion of anyone actively pushing Sharia, and, I would heartily favor the immediate sacking of any judge or politician who favors considering Sharia in any court cases. So, yes, in, Newt is ABSOLUTELY correct when he says

The former Georgia congressman said on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that the U.S. “should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization.”

Mr. Gingrich is calling the attack in Nice, which killed more than 80 people, “the fault of Western elites who lack the guts to do what is right, to do what is necessary, and to tell us the truth, and that starts with Barack Obama.”

Yes, he is, again, right, and as usual, CAIR is there to apologize for Sharia, and radical Islam in general

The Council on Islamic Relations condemned the attack in France, as well as Mr. Gingrich’s suggestion that Muslims in the U.S. should be tested.

CAIR is not, nor ever has been the friend of America or our shared values of liberty. Yes, I know there is always some spokestool from CAIR that tells us what they think we want to hear, but CAIR, and its advocates lie! And so would any supporter of Sharia if asked if they support Sharia. Therein lies the issue with what Gingrich is proposing. Those who would supplant Sharia in place of American law are never going to answer such a query honestly are they? I would highly doubt it. So, we can call all day for a test, and to be fair I would like to hear Gingrich expand on what type of test he would use.

This is a crucial issue, especially with the Obama administration’s seeming obsession with flooding our country with Sunni Muslim immigrants with no real vetting process. And recall ISIS, Al Qaeda, are Sunni, I fail to see any other result from this disastrous policy than increased attacks here, in our homeland. Further I fail to see even a hint of evidence that anyone on the left takes such threats seriously. Face it, the only thing the buffoons and moral retards on the left can push for is gun control, which would do nothing but make us even more vulnerable. Certainly the highly restrictive gun laws in France have done nothing to curb terror attacks there have they?

So, yes, again, Newt is dead on here. But I would ask what type of “test” he thinks will make honest brokers of Sharia proponents. I would surmise that the best approach would be to end the immigration of any Sunni Muslim refugees, as well as Muslim immigration from nations controlled, or partly controlled by ISIS, or from any nation that poses a direct threat to our nation. There are other nations in that region fully capable of accepting refugees, and, as well intended as Americans are who support accepting refugees from Syria, and other Middle Eastern nations we must use more prudent judgement.

We may not know how to deal with fixing this system, and to be clear, the American left has no interest in fixing it, so until we do, we must accept reality, and we must put the security of all Americans ahead of our feelings.

Pro-Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Taunts E.U. Parliament: ‘You’re Not Laughing Now’ – Washington Post

Tensions between the European Union and Britain, as well as within the country itself, spilled over to Brussels on Tuesday, as Nigel Farage, the leader of the right-wing populist U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), told assembled members of the European Parliament that the E.U. was “in denial” about its failure and the fact that it was falling apart.

“When I came here 17 years ago and said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me,” Farage said in a speech that was carried live by TV channels in Britain and across Europe.

“Well, you’re not laughing now, are you?” Farage said. He continued to predict that the U.K. would not be the last nation to leave the European Union.

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, had to calm jeering parliamentarians after Farage told them: “Most of you have never done a proper job in your lives.”

Schulz accused MPs of “acting like UKIP,” but also criticized Farage for his lack of respect.

Farage’s provocations did not go unanswered.

“I am surprised that you are here,” Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, told Farage in parliament. “You were fighting for the exit. The British people have voted in favor of the exit. Why are you here?” European MPs reacted with applause and cheers to Juncker’s speech…

Corrupt Clinton Aide Rigged The Benghazi Accountability Review Board – 100PercentFedUp

The big question in all this corruption is why these people aren’t in jail! The collusion between Cheryl Mills and Hillary Clinton had to be there. Is there anyone out there who REALLY believes that Clinton isn’t culpable in all this? This entire thing is sickening!

Remember the Accountability Review Board, appointed in the wake of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans in September 2012? The ARB, headed by former ambassador Thomas Pickering, provided the first attempt at oversight over the State Department’s actions in Benghazi and Libya following the sacking of the American consulate. Pickering’s probe didn’t bother to interview State officials of higher rank, such as Hillary Clinton, and tried to lay the responsibility on low-level staffers instead.

According to the new majority report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, that may not have been a coincidence. The report accuses longtime Hillary aide Cheryl Mills of undue influence over the ARB, from the composition of the committee to access to information and witnesses, Politico reports:

Cheryl Mills, the longtime attorney, friend and former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, influenced the findings of an internal State Department review of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a draft of the final House Benghazi Committee report.

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents reviewed by the board and helped edit the final report.

“The decisions to deviate from longstanding processes raise questions about the board’s independence, thoroughness and therefore the fullness of their findings of accountability,” the report reads…

Muslim Terrorists Slaughter Dozens At Istanbul Airport, Injure 147 More – Daily Mail

Three suicide bombers have launched a ‘major, co-ordinated’ attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, spraying bullets into crowds of terrified passengers and security personnel before blowing themselves up, injuring more than 140 people and leaving a death toll expected to rise to 50.

Eyewitnesses described the moment a hero policeman shot down one of the suicide bombers before he was able to detonate his explosives, giving holidaymakers a chance to escape and saving countless lives.

In shocking footage that captured the moment, the gunman can be seen running through the international arrivals terminal before falling to the ground – apparently felled by a police bullet – and sending his AK-47 skidding across the floor.

The police officer then approaches the gunman before realising he is about to detonate his suicide vest and running for his life…

More Than 2,000 Illegal Aliens Were Released From Prison Onto American Streets Last Year – Gateway Pundit

Liberals love to claim Obama has been tough on immigration and has deported tons of illegals but the facts tell a different story.

A new report from FOX News indicates that thousands of illegals who should have been deported after getting out of prison were allowed to stay for some reason:

Obama administration pressed to deport illegal immigrant ex-cons

More than 2,000 illegal immigrants were turned loose on American streets after serving prison sentences last year – often because their home countries refused to take them back – and many subsequently committed crimes including rape and murder, a key lawmaker charged Monday.

The claim, by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, comes a week after a federal audit blamed the Department of Homeland Security and an uncooperative Haiti for an illegal immigrant being freed to kill a Connecticut woman.

Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the Obama administration to put renewed pressure on countries that won’t take back their own criminals after they have been ticketed for deportation.

“Dangerous criminals, including murderers, are being released every day because their home countries will not cooperate in taking them back,” Grassley wrote in a June 27 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson…

Senate Dems Block $1.1 Billion Funding To Combat Zika Virus – PJ Media

Summer is in full swing, Fourth of July picnics are around the corner, and there is still a lack of funding to combat the Zika virus after Senate Democrats blocked a $1.1 billion funding package today.

Benghazi Report: Wardrobe Concern Stunted Rescue, Cover-Up Started While Victims Still Alive – The Lid

The official report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, offered proof of what America already knew about the attack, but more importantly added shocking details about the lack of leadership during that attack which led to the death of two of the four victims, and that the Administration was already working on a cover-up during the attack, when Ambassador Stevens was missing and not yet reported dead, and at least two of the four victims were still on the roof of the compound (Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods) fighting for their lives.

The official 800 page committee report issued Tuesday came just a few hours after a politically motivated report released by the Democrats which referred to Donald Trump more times than two of the Benghazi victims.

While the report does find fault with Clinton and the State Department, it does not focus on her just as committee Chairman Trey Gowdy promised. The report is a chronology of the events of the lead-up to the attack, the attack itself and the aftermath. Additionally, the committee interviewed more than 80 people, and reviewed thousands of pages of new documents not available to any prior investigation.

Along with finding fault in some the State Department and Hillary Clinton’s actions the report criticizes the CIA saying it “missed the looming threat despite warnings and wrote faulty intelligence reports after the attack. The findings will also indicate that the Defense Department did not meet its response times to deploy military assets to Benghazi and follow up to ensure Americans were rescued in a timely fashion.”

It is not surprising that the report says the story the Administration told America, that terrorist attack in Benghazi was incited by a lousy Mohammed video on YouTube, was a fabrication invented by the Obama Administration political team and had nothing to do with the ongoing live reports the state department was getting from Benghazi during the attack…

Open Borders Zealot Zuckerberg Angers Neighbors By Building Massive Wall Around His Home – Doug Ross Journal

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.

Shosana Chantara, a Kilauea resident, voiced her concerns about the breeze that’s being obstructed.

“It’s hot behind that wall. Because it’s up on a berm, there’s not a breath of air on this side from the ocean,” Chantara said. “You take a solid wall that’s 10 or more feet above the road level; the breeze can’t go through.”

Another Kilauea resident, Donna Mcmillen, calls the wall a “monstrosity.”

The island of Kauai is a masterpiece of natural beauty.

That Zuckerberg would both build a security wall and despoil one of the most spectacular islands in the world would shame a normal person, but not – of course – any Democrat…

European Superstate To Be Unveiled: EU Nations ‘To Be Morphed Into One’ Post-Brexit – Daily Express

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

The plot has sparked fury and panic in Poland – a traditional ally of Britain in the fight against federalism – after being leaked to Polish news channel TVP Info.

The public broadcaster reports that the bombshell proposal will be presented to a meeting of the Visegrad group of countries – made up of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia – by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier later today.

Excerpts of the nine-page report were published today as the leaders of Germany, France and Italy met in Berlin for Brexit crisis talks.

In the preamble to the text the two ministers write: “Our countries share a common destiny and a common set of values that give rise to an even closer union between our citizens. We will therefore strive for a political union in Europe and invite the next Europeans to participate in this venture.”…

American Flag Burned At San Francisco Tranny March – Townhall

A video taken at a transgender pride march in San Francisco shows participants in the march burning an American flag. The video was recorded by Twitter user “Mx Emily A Rose,” who later clarified that she was not an active participant in the burning but simply recorded the act.

While burning the American flag is legal, it’s not exactly the best optics for a group seeking increased acceptance into society. It does, however, beg the question as to where these activists would rather live.

Transgender people in the U.S. have many more rights here than they do in many other countries, and are freely able to march and assemble as they did in San Francisco without fear of being put into jail for doing so. Not all LGBT people can say that.

CIA Weapons Shipped To Jordan For Syrian Rebels Stolen, Sold On Black Market – Reuters

Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, according to a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera. (nyti.ms/292MmdH)

A Jordanian officer shot dead two U.S. government security contractors, a South African trainer and two Jordanians at a U.S.-funded police training facility near Amman before being killed in a shootout, Jordanian authorities had said in November.

The training facility was set up on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq to help rebuild the shattered country’s postwar security forces and to train Palestinian Authority police officers.

The weapons used in the shooting had originally arrived in Jordan for the Syrian rebel training program, the paper reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Theft of the weapons, which ended months ago after complaints by the American and Saudi governments, has led to a flood of new weapons available on the arms black market, the New York Times said.

Jordanian officers who were part of the plan “reaped a windfall” from sale of weapons, using the money to buy iPhones, SUVs and other luxury items, according to the paper, which cited Jordanian officials.

The CIA could not be immediately reached for comment…

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday tossed out former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s 11 corruption convictions, narrowing what it called the government’s “boundless” interpretation of federal bribery law.

In so doing, the justices vacated the finding of the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which had rejected McDonnell’s arguments and upheld the jury convictions.

The 8-0 ruling is the latest dramatic development in a saga that dates to 2013, when federal prosecutors began investigating Virginia’s 71st governor and his wife, Maureen, then Virginia’s first lady.

“There is no doubt that this case is distasteful; it may be worse than that,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., wrote in the opinion for the court. “But our concern is not with tawdry tales of Ferraris, Rolexes, and ball gowns…

Illegal Alien Activists Shut Down Atlanta Highway To Stop Deportations – 100PercentFedIp

Once again, the illegal activists have decided to flex muscles and shut down entire highways and streets. do they really think Obama will deport them? Not happening!

Immigrant-rights activists attempted to block the road to federal immigration agents’ headquarters in Atlanta on Monday, demanding President Obama stop deporting any more illegal immigrants after last week’s Supreme Court stalemate.

Led by the Not1More campaign, which webcast the protest, the demonstrators called Mr. Obama to hamstring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the deportation agency, saying it’s up to the administration to protect illegal immigrants now.

“We are defending the security and stability of our families, sending a direct message to the Obama Administration,” said Carlos Medina, a member of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. “We know that he has the ability to stop deportations at any given time. Our fight will not stop.”

The Supreme Court issued a tie ruling last week that left in place a lower court’s injunction blocking Mr. Obama’s broad amnesty program, which would have granted tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.

Mr. Obama says his hands are now tied, and he won’t try any more executive actions. But activists say he could do more – including stopping all deportations…

David Cameron has resigned as prime minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The prime minister, who backed a Remain vote, said Britain required “fresh leadership” to negotiate the country’s exit from the EU.

“I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination,” he said in a statement outside Downing Street.

SUNY Albany Race Crime Hoaxer Admits To Lies – Breitbart

A student at SUNY Albany who claimed to be a victim of a racial attack has admitted to fabricating the story – another in a long line of hate crime hoaxes.

Alexis Briggs and fellow students Ariel Aguido and Asha Burwell claimed that they were taunted with racial abuse and slurs while riding a bus in late January. In an ironic turn of events, video footage of the bus ride showed that no racial abuse had taken place.

In fact, the women themselves were charged with misdemeanor assault and with false reporting of an incident. SUNY Albany has expelled Aguido and Burwell while Briggs has received a two year suspension.

Briggs gave a tearful apology to the court, admitting to fabricating the story in order to receive a plea deal that would allow her to avoid any jail time. The student will however have to complete 100 hours of community service.

Briggs also stated that she “never anticipated the tremendous attention that would be given to this story or the far-reaching effect it would have.” Aguido and Burwell rejected plea agreements and could face up to two sentences…

Alabama Councilwoman Complains Holocaust Memorial Is Racist Because ‘It Is For Dead People’ – Raw Story

An Alabama city councilwoman made a series of outrageous – and mostly inaccurate – arguments in her attempt to claim a proposal to honor victims of the Holocaust was racist against black people.

Sheila Tyson doesn’t want the city to pay $45,500 to remove existing buildings on the site of the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, which has raised about $500,000 to build a memorial park alongside a 9/11 memorial, reported AL.com.

“Dead is dead,” Tyson argued.

Tyson, who has previously asked the city to pay for repairs at the historically black Shadow Lawn Cemetery, said she didn’t understand why the city should help the privately funded memorial project.

“Isn’t it still for dead people,” Tyson said. “It is for dead people. Aren’t the people they are memorializing deceased?”

City Attorney Thomas Bentley, whose parents are buried in Shadow Lane, sighed and tried to explain how the black cemetery was a private entity, while the Holocaust memorial expressed the city’s remembrance.

“I’m not sure I have the vocabulary or explanatory power to indicate the distinction although it’s clear to me from a legal standpoint that there is a distinction,” Bentley said…

House Blocks Democrat Amendment To Ban People On No Fly List From Getting Guns – Young Conservatives

We have been talking a lot about how Democrats want to ban people who are on the no fly list from getting a gun.

They completely ignore the fact that the list is a complete mess.

Children and congressman routinely end up on the list and it is a terrible way to decide who should have their constitutional rights stripped away.

It also warns people who are being investigated that they are being watched by the FBI.

But Democrats don’t care about any of that.

They just want to push their own political agenda in the aftermath of a tragedy when people are feeling vulnerable.

Well, it looks like the House has struck down their plan.

From Red State:

There is no viable way to allow a person on such a list to challenge being placed on the list without divulging classified information. Both lists are fallible and subject to political manipulation. The no fly list, in particular, is useless. Toddlers and fat drunks, like Ted Kennedy, have found themselves forbidden to fly because their name is on the list. More importantly, neither of the San Bernardino shooters was on such a list…

CNN’s Tom Foreman Caught Lying In Trump-Refugees ‘Fact Check’ – Breitbart

In a segment that was billed as CNN’s “fact check” of Donald Trump’s anti-Hillary speech, CNN gave a demonstrably false presentation of U.S. immigration policy in an effort to undermine Trump’s factually correct statements.

The segment was remarkable in that it not only revealed CNN’s profound ignorance of federal immigration policy, but an examination of the segment’s transcript also reveals that CNN ignored and blatantly distorted what Trump had actually said.

CNN’s Tom Foreman accused Trump making a “false” statement about Hillary Clinton’s refugee policy when Trump statement was, in fact, true.

“The reality check team was very busy during all of this [speech],” Foreman said. “Trump attacked Clinton’s plan to increase the number of Syrian refugees taken into America.”

Foreman then played video footage of Trump’s speech in which Trump said, “Under her [Clinton’s] plan, we would admit hundreds of thousands of refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth – with no way to screen who they are, what they are, what they believe, where they come from.”

Foreman then delved into his “analysis” of Trump’s statement:

He was talking about this in reference to the Syria program in context of his speech. So let’s look at the reality there…

Led Zeppelin Wins ‘Stairway To Heaven’ Plagiarism Trial – Entertainment Weekly
.

.
The song remains the same: Led Zeppelin are in the clear after a federal jury decided the band did not plagiarize their signature track, 1971’s “Stairway to Heaven.” The panel announced their unanimous decision on Thursday in a Los Angeles federal court room.

The English rockers were accused of infringing on the copyright of the instrumental track “Taurus” by the American band Spirit. Michael Skidmore, a trustee of the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe, was the plaintiff and accused Zeppelin of lifting “Stairway’s” acoustic guitar-laden introduction from “Taurus” and sought upwards of $40 million in damages, as well as a songwriting credit for Wolfe.

But the eight-person jury ruled that even though Plant had access to “Taurus” and that Skidmore and Spirit’s estate had copyright to “Taurus,” the “original elements of Spirit’s song are not extrinsically similar” to “Stairway to Heaven.”…

Supreme Court Strikes Down Obama Executive Action On Illegal Immigration – Townhall
.

The Supreme Court voted in a 4-4 tie on United States v. Texas, which concerned the Obama administration’s DAPA program that deferred deportations of some illegal immigrants. The tie decision means that the program’s enforcement will still be blocked.

As for what’s next, that largely depends on who wins the election this November. If the Democratic candidate wins (and nominates a fellow left-leaning person to the Supreme Court), this means that the policy will likely go into place.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said that the ruling was a vital protection of separation of powers, and that the Supreme Court made the “right call.”

“Before it could even be implemented, the President’s executive order granting de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants was put on hold in court…

Baltimore Cop’s Freddie Gray Verdict Is In, And It’s A Huge Deal – Daily Caller

Circuit Judge Barry Williams handed down a not guilty verdict on all charges Thursday for Officer Caesar Goodson, one of the Baltimore cops charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

Goodson is the second of six officers to receive a verdict. So far, all have been acquitted. Goodson was charged with second-degree depraved-heart murder, assault, manslaughter, reckless endangerment, misconduct in office and two counts of vehicular manslaughter. Goodson faced the most serious charges in the case. He opted for a bench trial, which means he waived his right to a jury trial and left his fate in Williams’ hands.

The verdict strikes a major blow to the prosecution since many legal experts saw this trial as their best chance at a conviction. The prosecution’s case centered around Goodson, who they alleged gave Gray a “rough ride,” a term used to describe when an officer driving a vehicle makes sudden jerks, turns and stops to cause a passenger to slide around in the back. The state alleged Goodson’s rough ride caused Gray’s fatal spinal injury.

The prosecution suffered a big setback when their expert witness balked on cross examination earlier in the case. While grilled by the defense, former Baltimore City police commander Stanford Franklin couldn’t say for sure that the driver gave Gray a rough ride.

Goodson’s attorney pressed Franklin and directly asked him, “Is it not your contention that officer Goodson engaged in a rough ride?”

Franklin answered with, “I can’t say,” a damning moment for a prosecution that had largely rested on the rough ride theory…

The Democrats Destroy Medicare – Betsy McCaughey

Under the guise of “reform,” President Obama is dismantling Medicare – dooming seniors to needless pain and disability and shortening their lives.

The stakes are high, because Medicare and the access it allows to medical innovations have transformed aging. Before Medicare, older people languished in nursing homes or wheel chairs with crippling illnesses. Now, seniors dodge that fate, thanks to hip and knee replacements, cataract operations, heart procedures – all paid for by Medicare.

Stunning findings just published in the American Journal of Public Health show that a man turning 65 can expect to live almost five years longer than his counterpart in 1970. Five years of extra life, and almost all of it in good health. What a priceless gift.

A gift Obama is snatching away. His so-called Medicare reforms make it harder for seniors to get joint replacements. His new payment rules shortchange doctors, discouraging them from accepting Medicare. New ER rules clobber seniors with bills for “observation care.” Under ObamaCare, hospitals get bonuses for spending less per senior, despite having higher death rates and infection rates.

Expect the Medicare Trustees’ annual report, due out today, to ignore these damaging changes.

The latest assault is 962 pages of rules with the acronym MACRA that dictate how doctors treat patients. The precious minutes with your doctor are wasted completing mandatory reports for the federal government, and your ailment gets short shrift…
