Man ‘Cured’ Of Prostate Cancer After Doctors Shock Tumor To Death With Testosterone – Daily Telegraph

A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors ‘shocked’ his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone.

The result has been described as ‘unexpected’ and ‘exciting’ because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

Other seriously ill men taking part in the same trial showed responses that astounded scientists, with tumours shrinking and the progress of their disease halted.

Levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), a blood marker used to monitor prostate cancer, also fell in the majority of the 47 participants.

One individual whose PSA levels dropped to zero after three months and shows no remaining trace of the disease after 22 cycles of treatment appears to be cured, said the researchers.

Professor Sam Denmeade, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, US, who led the study, said: “”Our goal is to shock the cancer cells by exposing them rapidly to very high followed by very low levels of testosterone in the blood. The results are unexpected and exciting.

“We are still in the early stages of figuring out how this works and how to incorporate it into the treatment paradigm for prostate cancer.

“Many of the men have stable disease that has not progressed for more than 12 months.

“I think we may have cured one man whose PSA dropped to zero after three months and has remained so now for 22 cycles. His disease has all disappeared.”…

Gitmo Terrorists Reacted With Horror At Trump Victory On Election Night, Asked Guards For Tranquilizers – Mad World News
.

.
Donald Trump’s victory affected the whole world in different ways, and we’ve just learned about what went down on election night at Guantanamo Bay, which houses some of the worst terrorists who hate America more than anything. When it appeared that Donald Trump would win, the prisoners had various reactions, and it was way worse than any torture or waterboarding. You’re going to love this.

Those prisoners at Gitmo knew they had it easy with Barack Obama as president, and most of them waited with high anxiety on election night to see who would win. According to the bleeding-heart leftist attorneys representing the terrorists, the sheer terror that broke out when they realized Trump would win was priceless.

“Prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba ‘thought it was the end of the world’ the night of the presidential election and asked their guards for tranquilizers and sleeping pills, CBS correspondent Margaret Brennan reported Thursday.”…

70% Of Immigrants Admitted Under Obama’s “Minor Refugee” Program Are Actually Adults – Zero Hedge

Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a “crisis” that involved minors seeking out “human smugglers” to help with transportation across the U.S. – Mexico border. So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a “refugee/parole program.”

Two years later, there’s just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults. According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM program to date, only 480 of them are actually under the age of 18.

Now, under the CAM program, the State Department told MRCTV in an email Wednesday that of the 1,600 aliens who have traveled to the United States to date, only 480 of them – just 30 percent – are children under the age of 18.

Conversely, a full 70 percent of those aliens who’ve been allowed into the United States under the president’s program for “minors” are adults.

The controversial initiative was launched in December 2014 as part of President Obama’s executive actions on immigrants, and was touted as a way to bring illegal alien children from certain Central American countries into the United States to be reunited with their families, who are often here illegally themselves. The move was allegedly designed to keep underage children from relying on dangerous human smugglers to bring them across the U.S. –Mexico border illegally. Per the State Department:

The United States is establishing an in-country refugee/parole program in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States…

Trump Has Chosen Retired Marine General Mattis For Secretary Of Defense – Washington Post

President-elect Donald Trump said Thursday he has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis, who has said that responding to “political Islam” is the major security issue facing the United States, to be secretary of defense.

“We are going to appoint Mad Dog Mattis as our secretary of defense,” Trump told a rally in Cincinnati, the first stop on a post-election “thank-you tour.”

Trump joked that the media and audience should keep the news to themselves. “We are going to be announcing him Monday of next week,” Trump said. “Keep it inside the room.”

Mattis, who retired as chief of U.S. Central Command in 2013, has often said that Washington lacks an overall strategy in the Middle East, opting to instead handle issues in an ineffective one-by-one manner…

Taxpayer Relief Shot: 75-Year-Old Detroit Man Kills Home Invader – Washington Free Beacon

A 75-year-old Detroit man is alive, one suspected intruder is dead, and another is at large after a home invasion on Friday.

The man told police that he heard a noise at his home’s back door around 3 a.m. on Friday. Two men broke an exterior window to gain access to the home and then used a crowbar to break into an interior door. When the homeowner went to investigate he found the two men standing in his kitchen.

“He ended up firing two shots, striking one of the suspects,” Officer Dan Donakowski told the Detroit News. “Both suspects attempted to flee on foot, but the one that was hit collapsed in the backyard and was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Police said the suspects in the break-in were between the ages of 16 and 18 but did not release the identity of anyone involved in the ordeal. One community leader described the homeowner’s actions as a justifiable case of self-defense.

“These two young males presented imminent danger and the homeowner protected himself,” the local community security chairman told ABC affiliate WXYZ. “There’s no reason for anyone to violate the rights of senior citizens, women, children and try to break into a home.”

Police said the homeowner was cooperating with their investigation and they don’t plan to file any charges…

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which maintains strong financial ties to the Kellogg Company, has provided at least $930,000 in support of the controversial work of the Black Lives Matter organization.

The financing is listed on the Foundation’s website. It includes a June 1, 2016 grant to the International Development Exchange, which is in a contractual relationship with Black Lives Matter to process donations for the group.

600 Veterans Potentially Infected With HIV, Hepatitis By The VA – Federalist Papers Project

Nearly 600 veterans who were being treated at a VA facility in Wisconsin may have been infected with several types of diseases due to violations of infection control protocol.

Some of those diseases include HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. The facility, in Tomah, Wisconsin, is in the process of notifying 592 veterans that they may have become infected, WEAU.com is reporting.

At a press conference Tuesday, acting medical center director Victoria Brahm said the dentist at the center was using his own equipment, then cleaning it and re-using it, a violation of VA regulations.

The facility’s rules require them to use sterile and disposable equipment.

Brahm said this was done for an entire year – from October 2015 through October 2016.

It only came to light when someone filling in as this dentist’s assistant noticed what was happening and reported it.

The dentist has been removed from “patient care” and is now working in an “administrative role,” the article states and the case will be referred to the inspector general for “assessment of any criminal charges.”

“It was purposeful that he was violating VA regulations,” Brahm said. “During all of the orientation, he used all of our equipment. He used it appropriately, so it was very purposeful from what we found in our investigation that he knew exactly what he was doing, and preferred to use his own equipment against procedure.”

Brahm told reporters that the Tomah VA has made improvements but still has others to make.

“We have clear evidence that we are moving forward and the people that remain here are very vested and here for the mission of taking care of veterans,” she said…

Leftist Baby-Killers Sue States So They Can Kill More Babies – Law Newz

On Wednesday, three different affiliates of Planned Parenthood each filed lawsuits in an attempt to challenge different state abortion laws. Federal complaints were filed in North Carolina and Missouri, and a third lawsuit was filed in Alaska’s state court. In a press release, the Center for reproductive Rights, which is helping coordinate the effort, referred to the recent successful challenges of various abortion laws since a June Supreme Court victory as “just the beginning” in light of the new lawsuits.

The specific laws that Planned Parenthood is attempting to strike down are:

North Carolina statutes which ban abortions after the twentieth week of a pregnancy, measured from the woman’s last period. The exception to the last is if there is a medical emergency where the abortion will “avert her death or for which a delay will create serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function,” with mental illnesses excluded…

Leftists Lose Their Minds Over ‘Professor Watch List’ Created To Expose Liberal Indoctrination On Campus – Daily Caller

Turning Point USA, a conservative organization made up of high school and college students, has compiled a website database of more than 200 professors at universities across the nation that “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”

The website, professorwatchlist.org, doesn’t list just any professo­r – TPUSA requires proof.

“This watchlist is an aggregated list of pre-existing news stories that were published by a variety of news organizations,” the website states. “While we accept tips for new additions on our website, we only publish profiles on incidents that have already been reported by a credible source.”

The website also says that TPUSA is not attempting to silence the professors on the list, but instead they are exposing “specific incidents and names of professors that advance a radical agenda in lecture halls.”

Since its recent debut, the list has seen no shortage of harsh criticism.

Slate author Rebecca Schuman deemed the watchlist “grotesque,” and called it “a stock agency for photos of self-satisfied young white people.”

“Intentionally or not, the Professor Watchlist, simply by being a self-styled watch list, has aligned itself with the ugly, frightening new political status quo,” writes Schuman. “This is, indeed, a turning point in our country, a time of fear unprecedented on this continent since the Second World War. Fear of being placed on a list, targeted as undesirable, and subjected to whatever happens next.”…

Hungarian Village Bans Muslims And Liberals To Stop EU’s Migrant Influx – Daily Express

Feds Cut $167 Million From Domestic Programs To House And Feed Illegals For Just 1 Month – Washington Examiner

The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day.

HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Policy Director Jessica Vaughan said that insiders have told her that the funding crisis has forced the department to squeeze programs for money.

She just revealed on the CIS website:

“An average of 255 illegal alien youths were taken into the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) every day this month, according to the latest figures the agency provided to Congress. This is the largest number of illegal alien children ever in the care of the federal government. To pay for it, the agency says it will need an additional one or two billion dollars for the next year – above and beyond the $1.2 billion spent in 2016 and proposed for 2017 – depending on how many more arrive. For now, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where ORR resides, is diverting $167 million from other programs to cover the cost of services for these new illegal arrivals through December 9, when the current continuing resolution expires.”

The money, she said, pays for “shelters, health care, schooling, recreation, and other services for the new illegal arrivals, who typically were brought to the border by smugglers paid by their parents, who often are living in the United States illegally.”…

9th Circuit Court Of Appeals Rules Marijuana Card Holders Cannot Own A Gun – Real Strategy

If you have a medical marijuana card, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that you can’t buy a gun.

The court ruled 3-0 on Wednesday that a ban preventing medical marijuana card holders from purchasing firearms is not in violation of the Second Amendment.

There are nine western states under the appeals court’s jurisdiction, including Nevada, where the case originated.

• Court Rules That Medical Marijuana Card will Prevent You from Buying a Gun

A lawsuit was filed in 2011 by Nevada resident S. Rowan Wilson after she tried to purchase a gun for self-defense and was denied based on a federal ban on the sale of guns to users of illegal drugs. Though marijuana has been legalized in some places on a state-by-state basis, it remains illegal under federal law. The court maintained that drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.”

Chaz Rainey, the attorney representing Wilson, said that he plans to appeal the decision. “We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don’t get a gun, but if you’re on the no fly list your constitutional right is still protected,” he told the AP. He argued that there should be more consistency in how the Second Amendment is applied.

Alex Kreit, marijuana law expert at the San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law, expects that this ruling won’t be the last we see of the issue. He told the AP that the ruling may be challenged by people who use medical marijuana who will argue “that they shouldn’t be lumped with other drug users in terms of concerns about violence.”..

He appears to get somewhat tired after hauling around the 5 gallon bucket, believed to have weighed approximately 86 lbs.

House Democrats renewed Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s lease on power Wednesday, voting to keep her as party leader and insisting she bears no blame for her party’s staggering electoral losses over the past six years.

We recently reviewed the list of sites where our ads can be placed and decided to discontinue advertising on Breitbart.com. We are working to remove our ads from that site.”

Breitbart said Kellogg was denigrating “to its own detriment” a loyal and engaged community of consumers who helped elect Trump, saying the site had 45 million unique visitors in the last thirty days.

Trump Reaches Deal With Carrier To Keep 1,000 Jobs In U.S. – Daily Caller

The incoming Trump administration has reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S. rather than outsourcing them to Mexico.

Carrier, which manufactures air conditioners, attracted national attention in early 2016 due a viral video of the company’s employees reacting to the news they were getting laid off, with their jobs being sent to new production facilities in Mexico. The move was intended to save Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, tens of millions of dollars in labor costs.

President-elect Donald Trump specifically pledged to reverse Carrier’s outsourcing plan if he were elected.

“It’s not like we have an 80 percent chance of keeping them or a 95 percent. One-hundred percent,” Trump told an Indianapolis rally last April.

On Thanksgiving, Trump announced he was negotiating with Carrier to keep at least some of its jobs in the United States. Now, those negotiations have borne fruit.

CNBC reported Tuesday night that a deal has been struck to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S., representing about half of the 2000 Carrier jobs that were to be outsourced from two different facilities. The deal, CNBC said, was spearheaded by vice president-elect and outgoing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and will be officially announced Thursday during a visit by Trump to the state.

Carrier itself later confirmed the deal.

It’s not clear how extensive the public inducements will be, but United Technologies has ample reason to please Trump…

Oil Prices Surge On Reports Of A Big Output Cut By OPEC – Fortune

Oil prices jumped more than 8% on Wednesday to a five-week high as newswires reported that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had agreed its first oil output cuts since 2008.

An OPEC source told Reuters on Wednesday that the cartel, which produces one-third of the world’s oil, had firmed up an agreement in line with a tentative deal reached in Algiers in September. That would involve cutting output from a current level of around 33.6 million barrels a day to somewhere between 32.5 million and 33 million.

Bloomberg said the new ceiling would be at the lower end of that range, an effective cut of between 1.1 million and 1.2 million barrels a day from current levels.

Brent crude futures for delivery in January were up $4 a barrel, or 8.5%, at $51.32 a barrel by 0915 ET, recovering from a drop of nearly 4% on Tuesday and on course for their biggest one-day move in nine months. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were $3.63 higher at $48.86 a barrel, a one-week high.

The volatility is acute because world markets are still badly oversupplied, and prices have edged up since September almost exclusively on the hope that OPEC would rein in output and end the price war that began in late 2014. Analysts at Goldman Sachs, Barclays, and ANZ had said oil prices would quickly fall to the low $40s a barrel if OPEC failed to cut output.

However, if the cut sticks, then the International Energy Agency reckons that the world market could “move from surplus to deficit very quickly in 2017”, leading prices to rise sharply once the existing stock overhang is depleted…

Trump Says He’ll Leave Business ‘In Total’ To Focus On Presidency – Marketwatch

President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday morning he will leave his business “in total” to focus on running the country while in the White House.

In an early-morning series of tweets, Trump said he would hold a news conference with his children on Dec. 15.

Trump, a real-estate mogul, isn’t legally required to give up control of his business interests, as he noted in his tweets. But he said: “The presidency is a far more important task!”

Trump offered few details in his four tweets, so it’s not clear how he will do this. One area Trump will almost certainly have to address is the Constitution’s clause on “emoluments,” which bans federal officeholders from accepting gifts from foreign states.

DHS Overwhelmed By Green Card Catastrophe – Washington Free Beacon

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued thousands of duplicate green cards to immigrants, including many that include incorrect information and allow these individuals to stay longer than permitted in the United States, according to a new government oversight report that warns the Department of Homeland Security is incapable of tracking immigrants who may pose a security risk to the United States.

USCIS, which handles immigration cases and the distribution of green cards, was found to have produced at least 19,000 green cards during the past three years that were duplicates or contained incorrect information, according to a new report by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.

During the same period, more than 200,000 green card holders reported their cards missing and an increasing number of cards were sent to incorrect addresses, posing a risk to national security.

Problems at USCIS have been increasing over the past three years. The bureau has been deemed incapable of keeping track of green cards and immigrants who have overstayed their legal time in the United States.

“In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and illegal aliens to remain in the United States and access immigrant benefits,” according to the oversight report, which disclosed that green card errors cost taxpayers $1.5 million in 2015…

Report Exposes $250 Billion In Wasteful Government Spending – Daily Signal

The national debt is expected to hit $20 trillion early next year. Sen. James Lankford has a few ideas to start chipping away at it.

The Oklahoma Republican unveiled his second government waste and solutions report during a press conference Monday on Capitol Hill and Heritage Foundation event Tuesday.

Lankford’s new report, “Federal Fumbles: 100 Ways the Federal Government Dropped the Ball,” identifies $250 billion in wasteful spending. His goal is to help Congress determine funding and programs that can be streamlined.

Lankford acknowledged that his report is not comprehensive, but is meant to offer common ground solutions to wasteful government spending that would appeal to lawmakers of all partisan stripes.

“This is not about targeting Republicans, Democrats, any administration,” Lankford said. “Bureaucracy is bureaucracy, and inefficiency is present in every government. This is an issue of oversight.”

In order to significantly decrease the national debt and cut government spending, Lankford said both Congress and the Trump administration must be more engaged in oversight.

“With $19.5 trillion in debt, this is something that cannot be ignored,” Lankford said. “If we don’t get economic activity and we do not control our spending, this does not get better in the days ahead. It gets worse.”…

Leftists Attack Trump For Suggesting That U.S. Flag-Burning Be Banned, Yet Hillary Proposed Same Thing – Washington Examiner

Critics on Tuesday morning were quick to pan President-elect Trump’s proposal to make burning the American flag illegal, but soon after a bill began circulating on social media that Hillary Clinton introduced in 2006 to do exactly the same thing.

Clinton, then a senator from New York, reportedly opposed a constitutional amendment that would criminalize the desecration of the flag, but introduced legislation in 2005 and backed a second bill in 2006 that would criminalize flag burning.

More than half of Democrats in the Senate backed her effort, the New York Times reported at the time.

On Tuesday, Clinton supporters and members of the media argued Trump was flouting First Amendment protections of free speech by tweeting that flag-burners should face a year in jail or the loss of their citizenship.

Although one of the flag-burning measures Clinton supported failed in the Senate in June 2006, the bill earned 36 votes, mostly from Democrats in the minority…

Tufts University Student Leaders Reject Free Speech Measure, Call It ‘Unsafe’ – College Fix
.

.
A sweeping free speech resolution has been rejected by Tufts University’s student government, whose members called the effort to broaden and clarify students’ First Amendment rights “unsafe.”

Tufts has a “red light” speech-code rating from FIRE, which means it maintains at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.

Student Jake Goldberg’s free speech resolution called for an end to campus anti-free speech rules at Tufts, including vague administrative provisos that crack down on the “use of nicknames,” “hurtful words,” “bias-fueled jokes,” “comments on an individual’s body or appearance,” “innuendos of a sexual nature,” “gender bias,” and dozens more similar examples cited in the measure…

Boom: Michigan Just Crashed Hillary’s Pity Party – Allen West

As liberals continue to whine, cry, and challenge the election results that happened several weeks ago, the state of Michigan just gave these delicate snowflakes some rather bad news.

It seems the Michigan Board of Canvassers have certified Donald Trump’s victory in the state, meaning he really, truly, irrefutably turned a blue state red.

It’s too bad folks on the left won’t suck it up and just accept their loss. That would be expecting them to act like adults, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about the fact these are the same people who color and watch puppy videos when they’re “triggered.”

According to the Washington Examiner, The board voted 4-0 to certify the state’s election results Monday afternoon, and the final tally showed Trump with a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 2,268,839, a difference of just 10,704 votes. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.

Last week, the Michigan secretary of state posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that showed Trump with a 10,704 vote lead, but the count wasn’t official until Monday.

The state’s 4.8 million votes may soon be getting another look, following media reports of alleged hacking or tampering in three swing states, including Michigan, though there is no hard evidence of any tampering of the results…

President Asshat Tries To Push Through 98 ‘Midnight Regulations’ – Law Newz
.

.
President Obama is spending this holiday season trying to get 98 “midnight regulations” on the books before Donald Trump takes office in January. These last-minute regulations cover things such as commodities speculations, air pollution, immigration, Medicare, funding for Planned Parenthood, investment with China, and student loans. Needless to say, the Republican-led Congress and Donald Trump are a bit miffed that their imagined lame-duck isn’t nearly as lame as they’d hoped.

Before we get into the usual story about how Congress plans to block everything President Obama does, just because he’s President Obama, let’s discuss how these “midnight regulations” even work. The legislative branch of the federal government (Congress) gets to make laws. The executive branch (the president) enforces those laws…

Wisconsin Denies Request For Recount By Hand As Stein Threatens To Sue – Zero Hedge

Finally, a voice of reason emerges in Wisconsin to combat Jill Stein’s useless recount crusade. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin Elections Commission Chairman, Mark Thomsen, who happens to be Democrat, announced earlier that the committee would follow through with Stein’s recount request but denied a request that the recount be conducted by hand. Thomsen cited a 2011 recount that changed the overall vote margin by 300 votes as evidence that the current recount would overturn Trump’s 22,177 vote lead in the state.

Citing the results of a 2011 statewide recount that changed only 300 votes, Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said this presidential recount is very unlikely to change Republican Donald Trump’s win in the state.

“It may not be 22,177,” said Thomsen, referring to Trump’s win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the vote count. “But I don’t doubt that the president-elect is going to win that.”

Thomsen dismissed Stein’s claims of problems with the vote as unfounded and misleading. But he directed his toughest criticism to Trump’s unsupported allegations that millions of people voted illegally nationwide, calling them “an insult to the people that run our elections.”

Under the plan adopted Monday, the recount would begin Thursday and could cost $1 million. Of course, we assume that Stein didn’t factor in the incremental costs associated with suing states that call her out for her ridiculous recount efforts…

Islamic Terrorism Suspected In Car-And-Knife Attack At Ohio State University – CNS

A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a police officer. Police said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist attack.

Eleven people were hurt, one critically.

The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The FBI joined the investigation.

The details emerged after a morning of conflicting reports and confusion, created in part by a series of tweets from the university warning there was an “active shooter” on campus and students should “Run Hide Fight.”…

Florida Man Hiding In Pond Tells Deputies Their Suspect ‘Went That Way’ – UPI

Authorities in Florida said a robbery suspect found hiding in a pond told deputies he was “just fishing” and the real robber “went that way.”

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded Saturday to a Family Dollar store in Deltona, where a clerk told them a man with “Loyalty” tattooed across his abdomen claimed to have a gun and demanded money.

The clerk refused the request, leading the man to flea, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies in a sheriff’s office helicopter spotted a man walking near a pond and wading waste-deep into the water.

A group of deputies accompanied by a K9 unit located the man in the water and ordered him to raise his hands and surrender.

Sean Torres, 29, allegedly told deputies he was “just fishing” and had dropped his pole in the water.

Deputies said they questioned Torres about the robbery and he responded: “The guy who did it went that way.”

Torres was arrested, however, when deputies determined his tattoos matched those described by the store clerk. He was charged with robbery and criminal mischief.

“While in the back of a VCSO patrol car, he repeatedly shouted and threw himself against the interior, kicking the doors, damaging the vehicle and causing it to rock,” the sheriff’s office said.

Torres was jailed in lieu of $30,500 bail…

There Will Be No Recount In Pennsylvania: Jill Stein Perpetrating Election Fraud – Defense Watch

Everything you’ve been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no “recount” in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad spectrum of analysis from the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter is pathetic. Seeing non-lawyer journalists mangle complicated election statutes so brazenly is not only sad but dangerous. It’s giving an emotionally triggered part of the electorate false hope. And it simultaneously creates conditions for the destabilization of the nation when hyper-emotional election expectations are thwarted, as they most certainly will be.

‘Sanctuary Cities’ Harboring Illegals Just Got Devastating News From Trump – Mad World News

A list of 18 major cities that are all run by Democrats have vowed to defy President-elect Donald Trump, promising to act as “sanctuary cities” that will prevent him from deporting illegal aliens. However, those liberal mayors are suddenly singing a different tune now that the Trump administration has revealed what’ll happen to these federal law-breaking cities.

One of the key facets of Trump’s campaign was that he has sworn to bring down the hammer on illegal immigration. In fact, it’s such a massive threat to our national security, economy, and legal system that it’s probably the main reason he won. Americans are sick of paying trillions of tax dollars to fund millions who despise our country and everything it stands for but seem to have no problem bleeding it for all they can get. Of course, there were still those socialists who believe that their feelings override federal law.

Independent Journal Review reports that after Trump’s election, 18 liberal cities announced they will act as sanctuary cities, blocking local law enforcement from complying with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to deport migrant criminals. Apparently, these bleeding-heart Democrats are in for a major surprise.

According to Breitbart, these sanctuary cities along with the entire state of California will face bankruptcy after Trump takes over the White House. The cities, which include New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., have been notified that they will be stripped of federal law enforcement grants that make up an average of 25 percent of their total revenue when the Trump administration begins cracking down on illegal immigration…

Corona Brewery Founder Makes Everyone In His Home Village A Millionaire – Oddity Central

The 80 inhabitants of a small Spanish village by the name of Cerezales del Condado have all become millionaires overnight, after inheriting roughly $210 million from Antonino Fernández, the founder of the world famous Corona Brewery.

Fernández was born and raised in Cerezales del Condado, before emigrating to Mexico in 1949, at the age of 32, to work for his wife’s uncle, who owned Grupo Modelo, the company behind Corona, the world’s most famous Mexican beer. He started as a as a warehouse employee, but slowly moved up the ladder, until eventually becoming the CEO of the company, in 1971. He helped make Corona Mexico’s most popular beer, as well as one of the country’s most successful exports. But despite becoming a billionaire, Fernández never forgot about his modest beginnings, contributing substantial amounts of money to various charities in Spain and setting up non-profits to help disabled people find employment. But no one realized just how much Antonino Fernández loved his home, until they read his will.

Antonino Fernández died in August, at the age of 99, and it was recently revealed that he left around $210 millions of his personal fortune to the 80 residents of Cerezales del Condado, making each of them the beneficiary of around $2.6 million. Maximino Sanchez, who owns the only bar in the village, told the Diario de León newspaper: “We never had any pesete (money) before. I don’t know what we would have done without Antonino.” The other villagers are obviously very happy and grateful, as well…

Assange Emerges In New Interview; Denies Rumors That “CIA Is Taking Over Wikileaks” – Zero Hedge

After weeks without a public appearance, which prompted many to speculate that Julian Assange has disappeared, or worse, the curious public demanded evidence that the Wikileaks founder is all right.

As Inquisitr reported, those pushing the theory that Julian Assange, an alleged candidate for Time’s person of the year award, is missing or even dead have cited a number of seemingly strange coincidences in the past few weeks. Those include an incident in November when WikiLeaks tweeted insurance files and SHA-256 hashes that did not match previous tweets.

Panic In White House: WikiLeaks Reveals U.S. Plan To Give $147 Million In Military Hardware To Yemen – UFP

WikiLeaks has released hundreds of documents from the US embassy in Sana’a, Yemen, revealing details of America’s multi-million dollar military support for the government of the volatile country.

The Yemen Files are a collection of over 500 documents from the United States embassy in Sana’a, Yemen. Comprising of over 200 emails and 300 PDFs, the collection details official documents and correspondence pertaining to the Office for Military Cooperation (OMC) located at the US embassy. The collection spans the period from 2009 until just before the war in Yemen broke out in earnest during March 2015. This time covers both Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (2009-2013) and the first two years of Secretary John Kerry.

Julian Assange said: “The war in Yemen has produced 3.15 million internally displaced persons. Although the United States government has provided most of the bombs and is deeply involved in the conduct of the war itself reportage on the war in English is conspicuously rare.”

Yemen is of significant strategic interest as Yemen controls a narrow choke point to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal through which 11% of the world’s petroleum passes each day. In addition Yemen borders Saudi Arabia (to the north) and Oman (to the east) and has access to the Arabian Sea through which another 20% of the world’s petroleum passes from the Strait of Homuz (including the oil of Saudi Arabia and Iran). Saudi Arabia seeks to control a port in Yemen to avoid the potential constriction of its oil shipments by Iran along the Straight of Homuz or by countries which can control its other oil shipment path along the Red Sea…

Israel Arrests 10 Palestinians For Suspected Arson – Times Of Israel

Israeli security forces arrested 10 Palestinians in recent days on suspicion of arson, as firefighters battle a wave of fires across the country.

The detainees include three people arrested overnight Friday-Saturday in a car near the West Bank city of Ramallah, the army said. Full and empty canisters of gasoline, rags, gloves and lighters were found in the vehicle.

Another suspect detained Saturday was identified by an official from the Israel Parks and Nature Authority as the person who set fire to brush near the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich said Friday night that investigators know who set a fire massive blaze in the woods on the Jerusalem hills near Nataf, which also spread to other communities. He said the authorities “were prepared to thwart” those involved through “deterrence and catching suspects, through observers and patrols in the sky and on land.”

“These are very simple terror attacks,” he told Army Radio. “Generally the attackers themselves know about it only a few minutes beforehand, so we can’t make preventative arrests.”

Police previously said they had arrested 15 people on suspicion of negligence or deliberately starting fires around the country, without providing many details on their identities. It was unclear whether Palestinians were among some of the suspects.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday there was “no doubt” some of the fires were started deliberately. “There is a price to pay for the crimes committed, there is a price to pay for arson terrorism,” he said…

Trump Declares Castro A “Brutal, Oppressive Dictator” – USA Politics Today

President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter initially on Saturday to react in only four words to Fidel Castro’s death before issuing a longer statement condemning the “brutal dictator” and yearning for a free Cuba.

‘Cuba Libre’: Miami Erupts In Celebration After Castro’s Death – New York Post
.

Within half an hour of the Cuban government’s official announcement that former President Fidel Castro had died, Miami’s Little Havana teemed with life – and cheers.

Thousands of people banged pots with spoons, waved Cuban flags in the air and whooped in jubilation on Calle Ocho – 8th Street, and the heart of the neighborhood – early Saturday. Honking and strains of salsa music from car stereos echoed against stucco buildings, and fireworks lit up the humid night sky.

Police blocked off streets leading to Cafe Versailles, the quintessential Cuban American hotspot where strong cafecitos – sweetened espresso – were as common as a harsh word about Fidel Castro.

“Cuba si! Castro no!” they chanted, while others screamed “Cuba libre!”

Celebration, not grief, permeated the atmosphere. That was no surprise. Castro has cast a shadow over Miami for decades, and in many ways, his policy and his power have shaped the city and its inhabitants.

There were no reports of violence or any arrests during the demonstrations, Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat said Saturday. Miami-Dade County officials said there were no plans to activate the emergency operations center – another sign of the more subdued reaction to Castro’s death than might have previously been expected.

“They are celebrating but in a very peaceful way,” Fallat said of the demonstrators.

Cubans fled the island to Miami, Tampa, New Jersey and elsewhere after Castro took power in 1959…

Leftist Journalists Hail Castro’s Achievements, ‘George Washington’, ‘Folk Hero To Most Of Us’ – Newsbusters

Fidel Castro, who died late Friday night, was a tyrant who oppressed Cubans and brought misery to many for several decades and while much of the breaking news coverage emphasized that reality, journalists on ABC, CNN and MSNBC – matching how too much of the media approached Castro for decades – couldn’t resist crediting him for supposed great advancements in education, literacy and health care.

On MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell insisted in a stock bio that Castro “gave his people better health care and education.” Appearing live by phone, she soon trumpted how Castro “will be revered” for “education and social services and medical care to all of his people.”

Along a similar theme, in an ABC Special Report during Nightline, Jim Avila maintained that “even Castro’s critics praised his advances in health care and in education.”

In a relatively tough report on Castro’s abuses, CNN’s Martin Savidge, in a pre-recorded bio piece, highlighted how “many saw positives, education and health care for all, racial integration.”

A meandering Brian Williams popped up by phone on MSNBC to ruminate and recalled how in his last visit to Cuba, in 2015: “You see the medicine system they are very proud of.”

ABC’s Avila went so far as to tout how Castro “was considered, even to this day, the George Washington of his country among those who remain in Cuba.”

Reminiscing about his high school years, via phone on MSNBC, Chris Matthews asserted that Castro was “a romantic figure when he came into power” and, Matthews wasn’t embarrassed to relay, “we rooted like mad for the guy” who “was almost like a folk hero to most of us.”…

Bookends To A Disastrous Presidency – William F. Marshall

To watch Barack Obama’s pathetic final non-victory lap around the world this past week, one can’t help but recall his stomach-churning “Apologize for America Tour” at the start of his administration. You’ll recall that in April 2009, he went to Europe, which we sacrificed tens of thousands of American lives to liberate 70-plus years ago, and informed Europeans that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” of Europe.

Last week, Mr. Obama could not resist the urge to dis his country once again, telling the “global community,” again from a foreign shore, that in the age of the internet, nationalism (read: Donald Trump) is rearing its ugly head. “Faced with this new reality where cultures clash, it’s inevitable that some will seek a comfort in nationalism or tribe or ethnicity or sect,” he informed us from Athens. He reassured his audience that “American democracy is bigger than any one person.” (Wink, wink, Donald.) Fittingly, he then went on to tour the ruins of ancient Greece, before flying off to Berlin to cry on the shoulder of his globalist soul mate, Angela Merkel, another leader looking at a potential uprising by her constituency, frightened by her insane immigration policies.

The choice of debt-ridden Greece, Europe’s worst economic basket case, was oddly appropriate as the location for the start of the swansong tour of the U.S. president who has produced as much American national debt in eight years as all previous American presidents had produced over a span of 220 years combined.

CNN Accidentally Airs 30 Minutes Of Trans Porn – Truthfeed

ICE: Philadelphia Let Accused Child Rapist Illegal Alien Go Free – American Mirror

Is Philadelphia so hell bent on protecting illegal aliens that it let one go who was arrested for child rape?

In a news release, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency says Philadelphia did not honor a “hold” placed on Winston Enrique Perez Pilarte, aka Josue Duran-Cortes, after he was arrested for “attempted rape, unlawful sexual contact with a minor, aggravated indecent assault, unlawful restraint, endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors, indecent assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person” in July 2015.

According to ICE, Perez Pilarte already has several prior convictions, including “manufacturing/distributing a controlled dangerous substance, resisting arrest/eluding an officer, and theft by unlawful taking.”

It’s not known why he is still in the country.

“After confirming his identity using biometric data, an ICE detainer was lodged against Perez Pilarte while he was detained at the Philadelphia Curran Fromhold Correctional Facility in July 2015. On Nov. 25, 2015, Perez Pilarte was released from local custody without being turned over on the ICE detainer,” according to the agency.

“Our deportation officers will use every available resource at our disposal to find and arrest these alleged predators,” said Tom Decker, ERO Philadelphia field office director.

German Woolworths Store Cancels Christmas Over Islamic Customers – Daily Express

The former high street favourite went bust seven years ago in the UK but still operates 300 stores across Germany.

Shocked locals found out after the Christmas section, which featured decorations, gifts and and festive treats such as chocolate Father Christmases, was removed after just a few days on display.

And a staff member reportedly told baffled shoppers: “We are a Muslim business now. We do not want to sell Christmas articles.”

Branch manager Seda Capakcur, 25, confirmed Christmas products had been withdrawn from sale.

She said: “The Christmas articles are hardly in demand here. Already last year, everything remained unsold.”

Bosses have denied the store is a Muslim business and that Christmas is being ignored as company policy.

Spokeswoman Diana Preisert said: “Woolworth is, of course, not a Muslim company. Christmas merchandise is available from September onwards and should be sold out by the end of December.

“In this branch, however, demand was too low. Therefore the goods were distributed to other branches.”

Ms Preisert said there were hardly any customers who celebrated Christmas as the shop was in a now mainly Islamic area which had created specific “local conditions”…

Judge Spanks Transgender-Obsessed Obama: You Lie – WorldNetDaily
.

.
For a third time, a federal judge has affirmed a nationwide injunction against the Obama administration’s agenda to impose mandatory open-restroom policies on schools from coast to coast, scolding the White House for repeating old arguments and catching those who submitted the newest arguments in a lie.

The ruling this week from U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor left intact his nationwide injunction against Obama’s decision that transgender public school students can use the restroom of their choice, rather than the restroom designated for their biological gender.

The White House issued the order some months ago, and when several states sued, O’Connor ruled in August that they were likely to prevail in their arguments, so he suspended implementation of the program nationwide…

Shocker: Media Falsely Spins Trump’s NYT Climate Comments – Climate Depot

The media spin on President Elect Donald J. Trump’s sit down with the New York Times on November 22, can only be described as dishonest. Trump appears to soften stance on climate change & Donald Trump backflips on climate change & Trump on climate change in major U-turn

The ‘fake news’ that Trump had somehow moderated or changed his “global warming” views was not supported by the full transcript of the meeting.

Heartland Institute President Joe Bast had this to say about the full transcript of Trump’s meeting: “This is reassuring. The Left wants to drive wedges between Trump and his base by spinning anything he says as “retreating from campaign promises.” But expressing nuance and avoiding confrontation with determined foes who buy ink by the barrel is not retreating.” The Heartland Institute released their skeptical 2015 climate report featuring 4,000 peer-reviewed articles debunking the UN IPCC claims.

Trump’s climate science view that there is “some connectivity” between humans and climate is squarely a skeptical climate view. Trump explained, “There is some, something. It depends on how much.”

Trump’s views are shared by prominent skeptical scientists. University of London professor emeritus Philip Stott has said: “The fundamental point has always been this. Climate change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate change predictably by understanding and manipulating at the margins one politically selected factor (CO2) is as misguided as it gets.” “It’s scientific nonsense,” Stott added. Stott is featured in new skeptical climate change documentary Climate Hustle…

Donald Trump Picks First Women For Posts In Administration – Wall Street Journal

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen the first women for posts in his administration, picking South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to serve as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and school-choice advocate Betsy DeVos as his secretary of education, his transition team said Wednesday.

Ms. Haley long held reservations about Mr. Trump’s candidacy during the GOP primary, and endorsed both Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz during the primary.

But both sides seemed to have warmed to each other after Mr. Trump won the Nov. 8 election. U.N. ambassador is a key post, advising the White House on foreign policy issues and representing the U.S. in discussions with other countries.

Hate Hoax: Another Student Fakes Mugging Claim By Trump Fans – Breitbart

Another student at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) has hoaxed a racist hate crime attack, local police have confirmed.

More than a week after the 2016 Election, a man on the BGSU campus claimed he had been pushed to the ground and robbed, all while the two perpetrators allegedly called him a racial slur.

The university’s vice president for student affairs, Thomas Gibson, put out a statement based off a local police investigation where he confirms that the alleged attack did not actually happen, The Blade reported.

It is still unclear whether or not the student will be charged for falsifying a police report.

The hate crime hoax is the second incident on the BGSU campus alone.

Breitbart Texas reported on an alleged incident where a black, female student claimed three white male President-Elect Donald Trump supporters had thrown rocks at her.

After a week-long police investigation, the student’s allegations turned out to be a hoax, as cell tower records indicated she was not in the location claimed at the time of the imagined attack.

Further, the student who hoaxed the attack, Eleesha Long, was involved with sending discriminatory text messages about Trump supporters, police said. In one text message, Long said about Trump supporters “should take an IQ test to vote,” while other messages said “I hope they all get AIDS” and “I haven’t met a decent Trump supporter yet.”…

German Man Cheats Recycling Machine Out Of Over $47,000 Using A Single Bottle – Oddity Central

A drinks vendor in Cologne, Germany was recently tried and convicted to ten months in prison for modifying a bottle recycling machine and cheating the swindling several tens of thousands of euros from the national recycling system.

Bottle-recycling machines in Germany are fairly straightforward – a person inserts one or more bottles into the machine and they receive a receipt for a few euro-cents, or euros, depending on the number of bottles recycled. But in a case presented in front of a Cologne court last week, one recycling machine ended up paying a whopping €44,362.75 ($47,000) without recycling a single bottle. It turns out that an unnamed local drinks vendor managed to modify one such recycling machine located in the basement of his shop so that he could earn a lot more than the usual spare change.

Evidence presented during the trial showed that the 37-year-old defendant had installed a magnet sensor and a kind of wooden tunnel into the machine, which allowed him to insert the bottle into the mechanism, receive his receipt and then retrieve the bottle without it actually getting shredded inside.

If you’re wondering how many times the man had to insert and retrieve that one bottle to earn a total of $47,000, the exact number is 177,451 times. The judge presiding over this case called the scam a “logistical master stroke”, adding that must have “done nothing else every day other than attend to the machine.” And while it is unknown exactly how long it took the drinks vendor to repeat the process 177,451, he did have this to say on the matter: “I had a radio next to it because otherwise it was really boring.”…

12 Fake News Stories From The Mainstream Media – Breitbart

With all of the politically-charged talk about banning “fake news” sites, it seems appropriate to review some of the worst fake news stories pushed by mainstream media outlets. No matter how large your family gathering is this Thanksgiving, you won’t be chowing down on a turkey as big as these phony stories from A-list television shows and publications.

Walter Duranty and the Holodomor: The mother of all fake news stories must be New York Times reporter Walter Duranty helping Stalin’s Russia conceal the Holodomor from the world. Duranty helped the communists cover up one of the worst crimes against humanity ever perpetrated, the forced starvation of over 1.5 million people in Ukraine between 1932 and 1933.

This was the worst of many lies Duranty told in the service of Soviet communism. His fake news helped sell communism to impressionable people around the world and changed the course of history. It’s one of two fake news items on this list sanctified with a Pulitzer Prize, which has not been revoked despite strong calls to do so. (In essence, the Pulitzer committee insists Duranty deserves his prize for everything he wrote that wasn’t an outrageous lie.)

The New York Times institutionally refuses to condemn Duranty or acknowledge the depths of his deception, portraying him as the victim of Stalin’s “powerful and omnipresent” propaganda machine – an excuse heard again from the mainstream media in other settings over the years, when they explain how they had to play ball with horrible dictatorships in order to gain access…

Obama Regime Fines Police Department For Not Hiring Non-Citizens – Daily Caller

Denver County’s sheriff office has been slapped with a fine by the Department of Justice (DOJ) because it refused to hire non-citizens as deputies.

From the beginning of 2015 through last March, the Denver Sheriff Department went on a major hiring binge, adding more than 200 new deputies. But those jobs ended up only going to citizens, because the department made citizenship a stated requirement on the job application. The department admitted as much in a new settlement with the U.S. government, which requires it to pay a $10,000 fine.

The department will also have to comb through all of its job applications from the past two years, identifying immigrants who were excluded from the hiring process and giving them due consideration.

“Eliminating this unlawful citizenship requirement will help ensure that the Denver Sheriff Department hires the best and most qualified individuals to protect and serve,” DOJ Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta said in a statement. “The entire community will benefit from these reforms.”

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, employers are required to give equal treatment to non-citizens with valid work permits, unless state, local, or federal law explicitly requires certain jobs be open only to citizens. More than 40 U.S. states currently have laws that in some capacity restrict non-citizens from being police, but Colorado is not one of them. The department says it was simply unaware that limiting employment to citizens was a violation of federal law…

Yes, That Facebook Class Action Lawsuit Check You Got Is Real – Law Newz

On Monday, you may have noticed something unexpected in your mailbox (the real, physical one by your house): A letter with a return address from “Fraley v.

Fraley v. Facebook is a class action lawsuit that was filed over five and a half years ago on April 4, 2011. It concerned “sponsored stories” that used Facebook members’ names and photos in advertisements without their permission. In August 2012, Facebook agreed to a $20 million settlement, but the judge rejected it, saying that the number was something that the social networking company “plucked out of thin air.” A deadline for Facebook users to opt into the case was set for May 2, 2013, and three months later, the $20 million settlement was approved after the judge was satisfied that it was the subject of negotiation between both sides…

Muslims Slaughter 20 After Man’s Pet Monkey Commits ‘Islamophobic’ Offense – Mad World News

A Muslim girl was walking down the street when a local shop owner’s exotic pet monkey approached her. However, when her Muslim relatives saw the little creature commit an Islamophobic offense, they immediately went on a bloody rampage that’s left at least 20 dead and dozens of others wounded.

It’s no surprise when barbaric butchery breaks out in Sharia countries, especially after a Muslim community becomes offended by something wholly un-Islamic. While their outrage is sometimes triggered by their own inane superstitions, there are other times that the world is left scratching their heads in utter bewilderment at the level of lunacy from the “religion of peace.”

It doesn’t take much to set off the Muslim community. At least, that’s what one man found out after his pet primate did something incredibly taboo to a Muslim child. In fact, the story is so outlandish that if major international news outlets weren’t confirming its authenticity, we’d think it’s a well thought out satire for Muslim hostility.

The BBC reports that at least 20 are dead and over 50 are wounded after a shopkeeper’s pet monkey allegedly pulled off a Muslim girl’s hijab. The animal reportedly bit and scratched the child, although the major offense appears to be the attack on the girl’s modesty. In a ridiculous response to the animal’s “Islamophobic” behavior, the girl’s relatives and community launched rockets, fired mortars, and even brought out tanks and other heavy weapons against the store owner and his people in a clash between the Awlad Suleiman and Guedadfa tribes – both Muslim clans…

Thousands Of Immigration Green Cards Have Disappeared – Daily Caller

Thousands of green cards are missing because U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials apparently sent them to the wrong addresses, jeopardizing national security, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (IG) report made public Monday.

“It appears that thousands of green cards have simply gone missing,” DHS Inspector General John Roth said in a news release. “In the wrong hands, green cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States. It is vital that USCIS ensure better tools and procedures are in place to mitigate such risks.”

Brace Yourself For Four Years Of Nonstop Freakoutrage – Kurt Schlichter

The left is trying to come to grips with its utter rejection, and its response to Donald Trump will be to fall back on an endless series of freakoutrages – hyperbolic, unhinged, hack media-fueled spasms of faux moral panic every time he dares do anything.

Appoint someone to a job? Freak out – it’s an outrage!

Go to dinner? Freak out – it’s an outrage!

Actually keep promises made to the voters? Freak out – it’s an outrage!

But it isn’t going to work. Not anymore. Not with the form of the Destructor Hillary and the rest of super smart Team Smugfail chose. Freakoutrage fatigue is in effect. You can cry Wolf Blitzer all day long and nobody cares.

It’s important to understand why liberals are so angry and so scared. They are angry because they believe they have a moral right to command us, apparently bestowed by Gaia or #Science or having gone to Yale, and we are irredeemably deplorable for not submitting to their benevolent dictatorship.

They are scared because they fear we will wage the same kind of campaign of petty (and not so petty) oppression, intimidation, and bullying that they intended to wage upon us.

And their fear tastes like sunshine puked up by a unicorn.

Massive 6.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Japan Sparking Tsunami Fears – Daily Express

A HUGE earthquake off the coast of Japan sparked a tsunami warning, with authorities pleading with residents “do not be complacent – evacuate immediately”.

The 6.9 magnitude quake struck off the east coast of Japan at around 9pm GMT and warnings were issued for imminent 10 foot-high waves.

it was originally thought to be 7.3 magnitude although it was later downgraded.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake was an aftershock to the devastating 2011 earthquake, the largest since that quake’s immediate aftershocks.

They warned another quake could strike in the next few days and warned residents in the area to “remain cautious”.

Small tsunami waves measuring betwen 30cm and 90cm have been recovered hitting the shore, smaller than the 3m waves predicted to hit.

The tsunami warnings have since been downgraded and now cancelled.

Live news footage from Iwaki City showed what appeared to be water rushing away from land, a phenomenon which often occurs before a tsunami.

Water is now beginning to return to land, according to the footage, increasing the likelihood of a tsunami.

Authorities said: “We have already observed a tsunami and expect the tsunami to come to the sea side.”

The Japanese Meterological Agency has ordered several locations to “evacuate immediately” and get to higher ground.

They said in an emergency bulletin: “Tsunami Warning. Damage due to tsunami waves is expected…

SpaceX Founder Elon Musk To Launch 4,425 Satellites Into Space – Your News Wire

SpaceX Founder Elon Musk has requested permission from the U.S. government to launch thousands of satellites into space in order to beam high-speed Internet down to earth.

The tech billionaire is competing against the likes of Facebook, Google, and Microsoft to become the first person to bring cheap Internet connectivity to unconnected parts of the world via wireless devices, drones, high-altitude beams, and laser beams.

Private rocket launch service SpaceX has asked the U.S. government for permission to launch 4,425 satellites in orbit to beam high-speed Internet down to the world, according to a newly filed application with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

That’s a hell of a lot of satellites; in fact, the figure surpasses the total number of satellites in the Earth’s orbit.

Here’s what the company’s 102-page technical document reads:

“The system is designed to provide a wide range of broadband and communications services for residential, commercial, institutional, governmental and professional users worldwide.”

Initially announced in January 2015 as part of his plan to fund a city on Mars, the project would cost at least $10 Billion, Musk estimated in 2015, though the latest documents did not mention any cost estimate or financing plan.

Senate Rule Change Pushed By Harry Reid Could Allow Trump To Get All Of His Appointments Confirmed – Daily Caller

A senate rule change championed by outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid could leave Democrats powerless to stop any of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments.

In 2013, Sen. Reid and other Democrats pushed forward with a rule change dubbed the “nuclear option” to eliminate filibusters for all presidential nominations except Supreme Court justices. This means that a simple majority of 51 votes instead of 60 votes is necessary to confirm executive office appointments.

The Republicans are set to enter 2017 with at least 51 senators and can gain another seat with a likely win in the December senate run-off race in Louisiana.

Federal Judge At Citizenship Ceremony: If You Don’t Like Trump, Then Leave – The Hill

A federal judge this week said at a U.S. citizenship ceremony that anyone unhappy with President-elect Donald Trump should go to a different country.

At the ceremony in San Antonio, the judge condemned Americans who have protested by holding signs that read “Not my president” in the days since Trump won the election.

DHS Shuts Down Aerial Surveillance On Border – Watchdog

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security quietly shut down Operation Phalanx, an aerial surveillance program that intercepts drugs and illegal crossings along the Mexican border.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, vows to challenge DHS’s move, saying Congress provided “full funding” for 2017.

Cuellar, a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the Homeland Security Subcommittee, is drafting a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson protesting the shutdown.

Texas GOP Introduces Constitutional Carry Bill Eliminating Handgun License Requirement – Fury News

Liberals and their asinine gun policies might fly in places like New York, but deep in the south, having a firearm is just a way of life for many Americans. Now Texans are taking their love of guns a step even further, introducing a Constitutional Carry bill that would allow citizens to freely roam with their guns in tow, without the need for a gun permit.

Republican State Rep. Jonathan Stickland has filed for a Constitutional Carry bill, and believes that policy would in fact help curb gun violence in the state.

Gun advocate and handgun license instructor Michael Cargill is all for the bill, saying that if you’re able to possess a gun, you should be able to carry it out in the open without a permit.

But gun-hating liberals in Texas are very apprehensive about the bill, saying this type of measure would not keep firearms out of the hands of children and criminals.

We’ll see if the bill gets any backing. So far, Representative Stickland is very optimistic, and says he hopes to get support from fellow legislators and get the bill referred to committee.

DOJ’s Civil Rights Head Has Been Working In Violation Of Federal Law For Over A Year – CNS

Vanita Gupta, the acting head of the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, apparently has been working in violation of federal law for more than a year and a half.

That may render all of the official actions she has taken during that period – lawsuits, demand letters, hires, you name it – “void” and of no effect.

To deter presidents from trying to get around the Senate’s constitutional “advise and consent” role in executive branch appointments, Congress passed the Federal Vacancies Reform Act in 1998. A key section of the law sets restrictions and time limitations on how long someone can remain as the “acting” official in a position that must be confirmed by the Senate.

The assistant attorney general for Civil Rights is one such position, according to the “Plum Book,” the official list of all such positions in the executive branch that is published by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, when an office that requires Senate confirmation becomes vacant, “the first assistant to the office of such officer shall perform the functions and duties of the office temporarily in an acting capacity subject to the time limitations of section 3346.” The time limitation set by that section is 210 days.

The law stipulates that, if the president submits a nomination to the Senate, the 210-day limit can be extended as long as the nomination is pending in the Senate. But it also stipulates that if an acting officer violates this time limitation, all actions taken by that individual “shall have no force or effect.”…

It has been reported on Reddit that Monica Petersen, working for the Human Trafficking Center, was in Haiti investigating possible human trafficking connections to the Clinton Foundation.

Peterson previously worked for the Colorado Human Trafficking Council’s Data & Research Task Force. Early in 2016, a friend shared her blog post which was critical of Hillary Clinton’s shady dealings in Haiti.

Carlos Slim’s net worth is more than $64.8 billion dollars.

Leftist Assmonkey Who Smashed Trump’s Walk Of Fame Star Charged With Felony Vandalism – KTLA

James Otis said he was prepared to pay the consequences after admitting last month that he vandalized Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

More than three weeks after the incident, the activist and heir was charged with one count of felony vandalism.

Otis, 52, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in downtown L.A., the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Otis used a pick axe and sledgehammer on Oct. 26 to smash the star with the name of Republican presidential candidate, now president-elect. The early morning stunt was was captured on camera on Hollywood Boulevard.

“I admitted my mistakes and am now dealing with my consequences, unlike Mr. Trump, who has never admitted what he’s done,” Otis said at a news conference after he was released from jail. “And that’s why I destroyed the star; I broke the law.”

Otis was arrested the morning after the vandalism. He said he “had to do it” and that he planned the “nonviolent action” for six weeks.

He planned to sell the star and donate the proceeds to women who have accused Trump of sexual assault.

If convicted as charged, Otis could be sentenced to up to three years in jail.

An heir to the Otis Elevator Co. fortune, Otis said his great-great grandfather invented Listerine…

President Asshat Releases Detained Haitian Migrants – Breitbart
.

.
News about President Obama’s Administration releasing hundreds of Haitians after the election will likely trigger a new pull factor similar to the one currently being experienced in south Texas, says a border patrol union leader.

Breitbart Texas has been reporting on the waves of Haitian immigrants who have been working Mexico’s lax system to get to the U.S. border and request asylum. The move has overwhelmed detention capabilities and prompted Mexican officials to warn about the possible spread of diseases.

On Thursday afternoon, the AP quoted an unnamed U.S. government official who claimed that “releasing immigrants with orders to report later to immigration court is a tactic used when detention space is scarce, under certain humanitarian conditions or as part of efforts to keep families together.”…

Secret Service Can’t Find Thousands Of Guns, Phones, Badges And Cars – Daily Caller

Thousands of sensitive assets belonging to U.S. Secret Service agents, including firearms, computer laptops, work badges, telephones and even motor vehicles, have been lost during the past 15 years, according to documents obtained by nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch.

“This is supposedly an elite law enforcement agency – how did all this equipment get stolen?” or lost. “This is alarming. Every American should be alarmed about this,” Judicial Watch’s Irene Garcia told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Secret Service agents reported 11,780 lost or stolen assets between fiscal years 2001 and 2016, according to the data Judicial Watch received, although the agency didn’t distinguish between lost and stolen items.

A total of 121 “weapons/pistols” were lost or stolen from 2001 through 2016, including 69 in 2002 alone. The Secret Service also reported 736 cell phones, 571 badges and six vehicles as lost or stolen in that same period.

But uncategorized or “all remaining” assets account for 4,644 of the 11,780 lost or stolen items. More assets were lost or stolen in fiscal year 2004 than any other year – 1,362, most of which were uncategorized.

This new information suggests that sporadic news reports in recent years about the Secret Service agents losing cell phones and guns were snapshots of a larger problem…

General Flynn Accepts Post As National Security Advisor – Fox News

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn on Friday accepted President-elect Donald Trump’s offer to be his national security adviser, Fox News confirmed.

Flynn, who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) between 2012 and 2014, has advised Trump on national security issues for months. As national security adviser, he would work in the White House and have frequent access to the president.

The position does not require confirmation by the Senate. Whoever holds it is typically shielded from congressional requests to testify or produce documents.

After leaving the DIA, Flynn became a virulent critic of the Obama administration and the Pentagon. He took issue with a wide range of national security policies, including the administration’s approach to fighting ISIS and, more generally, its handling of global affairs.

Flynn asserted that he had been forced out of the DIA because he disagreed with the administration’s approach to combating extremism. His critics, however, claimed he had mismanaged the agency and that his efforts to force change had met with internal resistance.

In recent public comments, including his fiery address at July’s Republican National Convention, Flynn has emphasized his view that the threat posed by ISIS requires a more aggressive U.S. military, as well as his belief that Washington should work more closely with Moscow.

Flynn is also a champion of renegotiating the Iran nuclear deal, another foreign policy theme Trump pushed during the campaign…

Some background on the Sessions appointment, courtesy of Bloomberg, which elevates one of Trump’s earliest congressional backers, and one of the most conservative senators, to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement official.

The 69-year-old, four-term Alabama Republican is a hard-liner on free trade and immigration, arguing that prospective immigrants don’t have constitutional protections. He has opposed efforts to overhaul prison sentencing, back off the war on drugs and legalize marijuana.

Sessions, a former federal prosecutor, was one of the few lawmakers to defend Trump after he proposed a complete shutdown on Muslims entering the U.S. He told Stephen Bannon on a radio show in 2015 that Trump was “treading on dangerous ground” but it is “appropriate to begin to discuss” the issue…

Trump Picks Congressman Pompeo To Be CIA Director – Washington Examiner

Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo will be nominated to be President-elect Trump’s director of the Central Intelligence Agency, according to the transition team.

Pompeo, a former Army captain, was first elected in 2010 and serves on the House Select Intelligence Committee and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, as well as the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

“I am honored to have been given this opportunity to serve and to work alongside President-elect Donald J. Trump to keep America safe. I also look forward to working with America’s intelligence warriors, who do so much to protect Americans each and every day,” Pompeo said in a statement.

The Kansas congressman is a graduate of West Point and Harvard Law School and was once an editor of the Harvard Law Review. He founded Thayer Aerospace, which made airplane parts, and served as the company’s CEO before selling his interest.

According to his website, Pompeo’s major interests in Congress have been freeing up businesses from government regulations and “defending our individual constitutional rights.”

He’s previously said that Edward Snowden, a former contractor who leaked thousands of documents on the American intelligence system, should get the death penalty. He was a fervent questioner of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the hours-long Benghazi hearing that delved deeply into Clinton’s private email server in 2015…

A mother is suing after her 17-year-old son received hormone treatment to transition from male to female without her consent.

3D Printed Skull Gives 7-Year-Old Boy New Lease Of Life Two Years After Tragic Fall Crushed 50% Of The Bones In His Head – Daily Mail

A seven-year-old boy who lost half his skull in a fall has been given a new lease of life thanks to a 3D printed skull.

Teddy Ward was just five when he slipped and fell down a cliff in Topanga Canyon, near Los Angeles.

The impact crushed his head, shattering all of the bone on his left side.

After surgery to replace the skull was unsuccessful, he was sent home with a helmet, ordered to wear it 24 hours a day.

It meant Teddy – described by his mother as a ‘rambunctious kid’ – could not go to friends parties for fear of getting on a bounce house, and his friends parents could not bear the risk of hurting him during a sleepover.

But now he is running around like any of child, thanks to a newly-designed skull that almost perfectly mimics the original.

It was created by doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles after years of research to find a solution for Teddy.

The final product, surgically implanted earlier this year, was made from a material called PolyEtherEtherKetone (or, PEEK).

Uniquely, it bears all the physical hallmarks of real skull material.

‘This was a remarkable defect,’ his doctor, Dr Mark Urata, told CBS Los Angeles.

‘It was close to 50 percent of his skull that was gone.’

Now that Teddy is back to normal – running around, dabbing, sliding and screaming – his mother Lisa Ward is ecstatic…

Electoral College Voters Deluged With Death Threats From Crazed Leftists – WorldNetDaily

One of Michigan’s 16 electors who will be called upon to cast a vote validating the election of Donald Trump in the Electoral College has testified on video that he and others in the state are receiving “dozens and dozens of death threats” from Hillary Clinton supporters urging them to switch his vote to Clinton.

On Dec. 19 the Electoral College will convene to cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, with each state’s electors pledged to vote for the candidate elected on Nov. 8 in their state.

But a handful of states have no laws making it illegal for the electors to change their vote while others have only a minor penalty such as a fine for doing so. If Clinton’s supporters can get enough of the 163 electors from states where Trump both won and votes can be legally switched on Dec. 19, Hillary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States.

Michael Banerian, 22, of Oakland County, Michigan, is one of that state’s 16 official electors who will meet in the state capital of Lansing on Dec. 19 to cast their votes for Trump. He told the Detroit News Thursday he has received threatening emails, lots of them, from people telling him to vote for Democrat Clinton instead of the GOP victor he is pledged to support. Trump won Michigan’s popular vote and should be able to count on the 16 electoral votes in that state.

Meet The First Leftist Parasite Charged With Threatening To Assassinate Trump – Freedom Daily

The election of President Elect Donald Trump has brought about a lot of discourse. More so than ever before. There are riots and protests in the street and violence is breaking out all over. Some argue that it has been encouraged by liberal race baiters like Michael Moore and Al Sharpton. It did not take long for people to start threatening to assassinate Donald Trump.

A 24 year old Ohio man was officially charged in federal court for threatening to murder President Elect Donald Trump via Twitter on election night. The young mans name is Zachary Benson and he lives in Fairview Park, Cleveland. The tweet was posted shortly before Trump was declared the winner.

His tweet stated, “My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don’t care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease (sic) existing.”

However, just seconds before he had tweeted, “Diplomacy. F***ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas.”

Just mere hours later he was arrested by the Secret Service and interviewed. Now that he has finally been elected the Secret Service and FBI are likely taking these threats even more seriously now more than ever. Whether you like Donald Trump or not it is never ok to threaten to harm someone, let along murder them.

So many have descended into anarchy and chaos simply because their candidate did not win and it is absolutely ludicrous…

Obama Sets New Record For Regulations: 527 Pages In 1 Day – WorldNetDaily

President Obama on Thursday set a record for the most pages of federal rules and regulations ever issued in a year by one president, adding 572 pages to the Federal Register, bringing his 2016 total to 81,640 pages.

And he still has weeks left to add to that figure.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, which tracks such activity, points out Obama has generated eight of the top 11 years for rules ever.

George W. Bush took 5th, in 2008, and 9th and 10th, in 2004 and 2002.

So far, Obama has generated 635,448 pages of rules, or 217 per day, or nine for every hour he’s been president. (That assumes a full eight-year term, so actually those numbers will go up with any more he produces before he leaves office)…

Mexican Mayor Arrested After Hundreds Massacred And Cooked In Network Of Ovens – Breitbart

Mexican authorities have arrested the former mayor of a rural community in the border state of Coahuila in connection with the kidnapping, murder and incineration of hundreds of victims through a network of ovens at the hands of the Los Zetas cartel. The arrest comes after Breitbart Texas exposed not only the horrors of the mass extermination, but also the cover-up and complicity of the Mexican government.

On Thursday morning, Coahuila state authorities arrested Sergio Alonzo Rodriguez, the former mayor of Allende, Coahuila, on the charge of aggravated kidnapping, information provided to Breitbart Texas by the Coahuila government revealed. Rodriguez was the mayor of Allende, Coahuila in March, 2011, when a commando of Los Zetas kidnapped dozens of people who were then murdered and incinerated.

Earlier this year, Breitbart Texas published the results of a three-month investigation into how Los Zetas were able to kidnap, torture, execute and incinerate approximately 300 victims – including women and children – between 2011 and 2013. Approximately 150 of the victims were taken to the Piedras Negras state prison where cartel members used 55-gallon drums to incinerate the human remains.

Trump May Not Get To Work Out Of Oval Office For A Year Due To Obama Putting Off Security Upgrades – Daily Mail

President-elect Donald Trump has captured the White House, but he may have to wait a while to ensconce himself inside the Oval Office.

Former George W. Bush advisor Karl Rove said Wednesday that major security upgrades are planned for the ceremonial office and seat of presidential power – and that it could put the office out of commission for up to a year.

If that occurs, he said, President Trump might have to spend up to a quarter of his term working out of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across the street – where President Richard Nixon labored and made some of his infamous White House recordings.

‘My understanding is that for the first year of his time in office, President Trump will not have the Oval Office,’ Rove told Fox News on Wednesday.

‘President Obama could have told the Secret Service, “I know you want to modernize the Oval Office with security enhancements – literally strip it down to the bare walls and build it back up so we’ve got bullet proof glass and so forth and so on, security arrangements in it, in my last year in office,”‘ Rove said.

‘But Instead he said, “Why don’t you do that [with] whoever comes next so the president of the United States, President Trump, my understanding is, will spend most of his first year using Richard Nixon’s old office in the Old Executive Office Building across executive drive and up the Navy steps.”…

Rutgers Professor Threatens To Kill White People Online, Is Carted Off To Bellevue For Psychological Evaluation – Daily Caller

A Rutgers professor became so upset about Donald Trump’s election victory that police took him in for a psychological evaluation, New Jersey authorities announced Wednesday.

Kevin Allred is a women’s and gender studies professor and the creator of Politicizing Beyoncé, and given his specialty it was unsurprising that he wasn’t happy that Trump won. But Allred began to go off the rails on Twitter, tweeting his desire to kill white people.

“[W]ill the 2nd Amendment be as cool when i buy a gun and start shooting atrandom [sic] white people or no?,” he asked on Twitter Nov. 10.

On Tuesday night, police showed up at his house to check up on him, and then carted him off to Bellevue Hospital in New York City for a two-hour psychological evaluation.

The encounter hardly improved Allred’s irate condition.

11 Very Depressing Economic Realities That Trump Will Inherit From Obama – Zero Hedge

It would be a grave mistake to understate the amount of damage that has been done to the U.S. economy over the past eight years. In this article, I am going to share some economic numbers with you that are extremely sobering. Anyone that takes a cold, hard, honest look at the numbers should be able to see that our economy is in terrible shape. Unfortunately, the way that we see things is often clouded by our political views.

Up until the election, Democrats were far more likely then Republicans to believe that the economy was improving, but now that is in the process of completely reversing. According to Gallup, only 16 percent of Republicans believed that the economy was getting better before the election, but that number has suddenly jumped to 49 percent after Trump’s election victory. And the percentage of Democrats that believe that the economy is getting better fell from 61 percent to 46 percent after the election.

Here are some additional details from Gallup:

After Trump won last week’s election, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents now have a much more optimistic view of the U.S. economy’s outlook than they did before the election. Just 16% of Republicans said the economy was getting better in the week before the election, while 81% said it was getting worse. Since the election, 49% say it is getting better and 44% worse.

Conversely, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents’ confidence in the economy plummeted after the election. Before the election, 61% of Democrats said the economy was getting better and 35% worse…

Meet California’s 218,667 Public Employees Making Over $100,000 A Year – Zero Hedge

Open the Books is back with another important government transparency report. This time, the organization looked closely at California payrolls, and found that 218,667 public sector employees earn six-figure salaries (in many cases far above that threshold), at a cost of $35 billion.

If Californians are fine with this sort of thing, more power to them, but it’s important to be knowledgable about where and how tax dollars are spent.

Below are a few highlight’s from Adam Andrzejewski’s (founder of Open the Books) recent article published at Forbes titled, ‘$100K Minimum Wage’ For 220,000 Highly-Compensated California Public Employees Costs Taxpayers $35B:

In many states, public service has little to do with serving the public and everything to do with using the public’s money to serve politicians. Whenever we open the books, California is consistently among the worst offenders. Recently, we found ‘animal collection curators’ making $110,290; city librarians earning $222,320; public utility commission bosses at $550,028; and county hospital doctors making $1.274 million.

This spring, at Forbes, we exposed 50,000 Illinois public employees earning six-figure salaries who cost taxpayers $8 billion. In California the numbers are exponentially larger: 218,667 employees making six-figures who cost $35 billion. For example, Illinois has 72 ‘city managers’ out-earning every governor of the 50 states. But, in California, the salaries of 171 assistant city managers average $201,550!

Draining The Swamp: Mike Pence Purges Lobbyists From Trump Transition Team – Breitbart

Vice President-elect Mike Pence has banished all lobbyists from Donald Trump’s transition team, reassuring critics who question the president-elect’s promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington, D.C.

“[W]e’re not going to have any lobbyists involved with the transition efforts,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller explained to reporters at Trump Tower on Wednesday, in response to a report from the Wall Street Journal that one of Pence’s first acts as the head of the transition team was to banish all lobbyists.

“When we talk about draining the swamp, this is one of the first steps,” Miller said.

Pence took over the transitioning job from New Jersey Governor Christie after they won the presidential election. Many of the people on the transitional team under Christie featured “a litany of lobbyists”, according to a report from Fox News.

“I think folks will be reassured that that campaign promise is going to be fulfilled,” Miller added.

During an interview with CBS News’ 60 Minutes, Trump said that Washington, D.C. was full of lobbyists, but suggested he might need a few in his administration.

“Everybody’s a lobbyist down there,” he said. “We’re doing a lot of things to clean up the system. But everybody that works for government, they then leave government and they become a lobbyist, essentially. I mean, the whole place is one big lobbyist.”

Leftist Drunk Driver Blames Car Crash On Trump – Breitbart

A drunk driver with a BAC of .33 crashed into two vehicles at a traffic stop in Minnesota Wednesday and told police officers she was drinking to drown her sorrows about President-elect Donald Trump’s victory, authorities said.

Elizabeth L. Lundberg, 33, is charged with gross-misdemeanor counts of criminal vehicular operation and third-degree driving while intoxicated in connection with the motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Main Street and Lake Drive, the Star Tribune reported.

A breathalyzer measured the St. Paul woman’s BAC just a few hours after the crash at .33 percent, more than four times the legal limit for driving in Minnesota.

“We heard a new excuse for driving over 4 times the legal limit and hitting two vehicles at a stop light Wednesday afternoon,” read the posting on the Lino Lakes Police Department’s Facebook page.

According to police, Lundberg could not spell her name and slurred her speech, but she was able to say why she was intoxicated.

“I am upset over the outcome of the election and you should let me go home,” the department’s Facebook post quoted the driver as saying.

Blaming the Trump victory came “well after I asked if everyone was OK, and I said it sarcastically. It was such a fleeing comment,” Lundberg told the Star Tribune after she left jail Monday.

She said she did not feel strongly about politics either way and admitted she was drinking heavily that day…
