Jeff Sessions Confirmed As Attorney General After Bitter Senate Fight – Washington Times
.

.
The Senate approved Jeff Sessions as attorney general Wednesday, installing one of President Trump’s biggest backers at the head of the Justice Department after one of the nastiest confirmation battles in a generation.

Only a single Democrat joined Republicans in the 52-47 vote to confirm Mr. Sessions – a startling snub of a man they spent decades working with but whom they now assailed with thinly veiled accusations of racism and xenophobia.

Mr. Sessions’ to-do list at the department is already lengthy, with the defense of the president’s extreme vetting executive action and a host of other lawsuits piling up against Mr. Trump’s sanctuary city and regulatory policies…

Senators Lee, Jordan And Meadows Call For Immediate Repeal Of ‘Deplorable’ Obamacare – Breitbart

Capitol Hill conservatives Sen. Mike Lee (R.-Utah), House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.), and Meadows’ HFC predecessor Rep. James Jordan (R.-Ohio) at a Heritage Foundation-sponsored event told reporters Congress should repeal the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act immediately.

At a minimum, Congress should follow through with the PPACA, or Obamacare repeal, that was passed through the budget reconciliation process in the last Congress and vetoed by President Barack Obama, Lee said.

“We still have a Congress that is controlled by the Republican Party, and we also have a White House, we have a Republican president, so we need to pass that,” Lee said. “If we can get something more aggressive than that? Then, great. But it certainly should not be anything less aggressive than what we were able to pass in 2015.”

Lee said he was not taken in by calls to delay the repeal, which was a promise to the American people.

Instead of waiting for Congress to build a new Obamacare before repealing Obamacare, the first step is to lock down repeal, he said.

It is important that the repeal bill pass in the next three or four months because there are so many items that Congress must deal with this year, Lee said…

Meet Joanna Palani, the gorgeous 23-year-old Danish student who burst onto the world stage after reports of her combat performance began to surface.

While women in the United States were busy mocking President Trump by wearing pink “pussy hats,” Palani was busy killing ISIS militants. Just how many militants are we talking about? According to the Mirror, she has killed 100 militants in her role as a sniper while fighting in Iraq and Syria.

The Mirror also reports that she believes that she has a $1 Million bounty on her head from ISIS as a result.

92% Of Leftist Activists Live With Their Parents And One In Three Is Unemployed, Study Of Berlin Protesters Finds – Daily Mail

The vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested on suspicion of politically-fuelled offences in Berlin are young men who live with their parents, a new report found.

The figures, which were published in daily newspaper Bild revealed that 873 suspects were investigated by authorities between 2003 and 2013.

Of these 84 per cent were men, and 72 per cent were aged between 18 and 29.

More than half of the arrests were made in the Berlin districts of Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Mitte, mostly during demonstrations.

A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents.

The figures published in the Berlin newspaper said of the offences committed against a person, in four out of five cases the victims were police officers.

In 15 per cent of these cases, the victims were right wing activists.

The new figures were released by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV).

Between 2009 and 2013, the Bild report claims, left-wing assassins attempted to commit 11 murders…

U.S. Has Run Annual Trade Deficits For 41 Straight Years – CNS

With the United States running trade deficits in both goods and services combined and goods alone in 2016, the nation has not seen a trade surplus in any of the last 41 years, according to data published by the Census Bureau.

The last time the United States ran a trade surplus was 1975 – when Gerald Ford was president.

The Census Bureau has published historical data on annual U.S. trade balances going back to 1960. In 13 of the 16 years from 1960 through 1975, the U.S. ran goods-and-services trade surpluses and surpluses in the trade of goods (merchandise) alone.

But in each of the 41 years after 1975, according to data released by the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the U.S. has run both a merchandise trade deficit and a goods and services deficit.

In 1974, as measured by the Census Bureau, the U.S. ran a merchandise trade surplus of $3,884,000,000. Then in 1975, the nation ran an $9,551,000,000 merchandise trade surplus. In 1976, however, the merchandise trade balance went back into the red – with a deficit of $$7,820,000,000…

Trump Slams Courts By Reading Federal Law On Illegal Aliens – Townhall

Speaking to a conference crowd of local law enforcement officers and leaders in Washington Wednesday, President Trump slammed the courts for what he perceives as lawyering of straight forward immigration law the White House is using to justify his recent travel ban.

Standing at the lectern, Trump read aloud title eight, chapter 12 of U.S. Code which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on entry of aliens any restrictions may deem to be appropriate.”…

Hundreds Of Immigrants Convicted And Not Deported Committed More Crimes, Even Murder – Miami Herald

At least 121 killings within a four-year span were carried out by convicted immigrants who were not deported, according to a 2015 U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee document recently reviewed by el Nuevo Herald.

Every year, federal immigration authorities release foreign nationals convicted of crimes – including murder – both because the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited indefinite detention or because their countries refuse to take them back even after immigration judges have ordered deportation.

While the release of convicted immigrant criminals has been routine since the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling 15 years ago, the practice is now in the national spotlight because President Donald Trump has made it imperative to deport immigrant convicts as quickly as possible lest they commit more crimes.

Research by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has elicited evidence that could be used to back Trump’s claim. A committee document contains comprehensive information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about the number of immigrant convicts in the United States, their whereabouts, whether immigration authorities have succeeded in deporting them and whether they committed additional crimes after being released…

Video Of Coretta Scott King Thanking Jeff Sessions For Rosa Parks Library Crushes Elizabeth Warren Racial Stunt – True Pundit

Senate Votes To Gag Elizabeth (Fauxcahontas) Warren After Anti-Sessions Outburst – Zero Hedge

Following a scathing speech against Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Senator Elizabeth Warren had “impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” violating the so-called ‘Rule 19’. By a vote of 49-43, Senator Warren was then barred from speaking on the floor until Senator Sessions nomination debate is complete (likely tomorrow evening).

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who was presiding over the the Senate during the Massachusetts Democrat’s speech – who at times was repeating words being said to him by GOP Senate floor staff – initially interrupted Warren to warn her that she was on the brink of violating the rule.

As The Hill reports, the drama on the Senate floor comes after McConnell interrupted Warren’s speech accusing her of breaking the upper chamber’s guidelines.

“The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.

“I call the senator to order under the provisions of Rule 19.”

Under the Senate’s “Rule 19,” senators are not allowed to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”…

Second Swedish Police Officer Blows The Whistle On Migrant Crime Cover-Up – InfoWars

A second Swedish police officer has gone public to blow the whistle on how authorities are covering up a migrant crime wave just days after another top cop was reported as a “racist” for making similar comments.

Last week Peter Springare, police investigator and former deputy head of the division for serious crimes at the police in Örebro, made headlines after he wrote a Facebook post in which he detailed how the country was in “chaos” due to a never ending epidemic of serious crimes being committed by Muslim migrants.

Springare may now face charges under Sweden’s strict hate crime laws simply for accurately identifying the problem after he was reported to authorities over the remarks.

However, Springare has also received a deluge of support from both the public and his fellow police officers, one of whom came forward to validate his concerns.

In a Facebook message posted on a page set up to support Springare that currently has over 92,000 likes, Tomas Åsenlöv, a police officer for Greater Gothenburg, exposed how police have been told to implement a “Code 291” procedure in order to cover-up information about crimes committed by migrants…

Drunk Dude Wearing Pink Lingerie Arrested After Passing Out In Stolen Car, Booze And Guns Found In Vehicle – Tribune-Review

Daniel Marchese had a bad day Monday; it wasn’t much better for the University of Pittsburgh police officers who arrested him.

When police arrived at the busy Oakland intersection of Centre and Melwood avenues shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, Marchese, 51, was sitting in his tan Buick 4-door, nodding in and out of consciousness, according to a criminal complaint.

His sweatpants were down around his thighs, revealing both his pink lingerie and his exposed penis to a crowd at the bus stop where the car – still running and in drive – had come to a stop, Officer Michael Talvola wrote.

A paramedic flagged down by the crowd put the car in park and the keys on the roof, and police attempted to rouse Marchese, according to the complaint.

Marchese allegedly became combative, prompting Talvola to remove him from the car and handcuff him.

Talvola wrote in the criminal complaint, “When asked if he had identification (Marchese) said, “How about (expletive) you.”

Two other officers arrived, and while they tried to keep Marchese from stumbling into traffic, he suddenly went limp and became dead weight, according to the complaint. Once lowered to the ground, he tried kicking officers and rolling into traffic…

High Schooler Mad At Patriots For Winning Super Bowl Threatens To Shoot Up school – WDAF

A teenager upset over the New England Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl 51 is facing a felony charge for threatening his high school through a social media post. Prosecutors charged Jashon Taylor, 17, of making a terrorist threat, a class D felony.

A probable cause statement says Taylor was mad that the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night, so on Snapchat he threatened to shoot up Belton High School. The court document states he said in part: “Bro i hate the patriots and every fan they have… OMG im f****n pissed. Let it be known im shooting Belton tomorrow or tuesday whenever i go back.

CBS Poll: Two-Thirds Of Democrats Say Islam, Christianity Equally Violent – Breitbart

Almost seven out 10 Democrats believe Islam “encourages violence… about the same as other religions,” according to a new CBS poll.

The trusting attitude towards Islam is revealed in the February 2017 poll follows 17 tumultuous years of attacks against Americans motivated or shaped by Islamic ideology throughout the United States – from the 9/11 atrocity to the Pulse nightclub attack in Florida committed by an observant, orthodox Muslim man from a Muslim family.

Merely one-in-seven Democrats believe that Islam is more violent than other religions, such as Christianity, Mormonism, Judaism, and Buddhism. One-in-ten Democrats believe that Islam is less violent that other religions, according to the poll of 1,019 adults, which was taken Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.

In contrast, Republicans have a far colder view of Islam. Sixty-three percent of Republicans view Islam as aggressive compared to other religions, and only two percent view Islam as more pacific than other faiths.

Still, 25 percent of Republican voters believe Islam’s encouragement of violence is level with Christianity’s doctrines, including the Beatitudes passage, reported by Matthew: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”…

Navy’s Depleted Aircraft Will Take Years To Rebuild After Obama-Era Defense Cuts – Washington Free Beacon

The Navy’s aircraft arsenal is so depleted it would take several years to rebuild the fleet even if the Trump administration allotted the funding needed to repair inoperable aircraft, according to a policy expert and former Air Force pilot.

John Venable, a senior research fellow for defense policy at the Heritage Foundation, cited a report released Monday that found two-thirds of the Navy’s strike fighter jets are unable to fly due to maintenance problems exacerbated by several years of military budget cuts.

Thirty-five percent of grounded fighter planes are waiting for parts, while 27 percent are undergoing major depot work, according to the report published by Defense News. A full 62 percent of F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet strike fighters are out of service, a concerning figure because of the essential role the planes fill in the fleet’s combat power…

Australians Turn Against Prime Minister After His Spat With President Trump – Your News Wire

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball’s disastrous phone call with President Trump might have thrust him into the international spotlight, but polls show “embarrassed” Australian voters have turned against him in droves since the incident.

Pundits say Australians are embarrassed their Prime Minister used his first phone call with President Trump to air his dirty laundry in public and attempt to push thousands of unwanted refugees on their closest ally, the United States.

Support for Turnball’s Liberal-National coalition has nosedived to it’s lowest point since he took office, slumping a huge 4% overnight to 35%, according to a Newspoll conducted Feb. 2-5, published in the Australian newspaper.

Bloomberg reports: The government trails the main opposition Labor party 54 percent to 46 percent on a two-party preferred basis.

Turnbull has started the year under pressure at home and abroad. Trump last week railed against a “dumb deal” that Australia signed with the Obama administration to send more than 1,000 refugees to the U.S. for resettlement. His performance on domestic matters is also under scrutiny amid mounting signs of fiscal weakness…

France: Anti-Christian Attacks Rise 245 Percent – Breitbart

While racist, anti-Muslim, and anti-Semitic attacks have seen a huge fall since 2008, those on Christian places of worship more than doubled in this period of time, France’s interior ministry reported last week.

Having documented a record number of anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim attacks in 2015, the French government spent €100 million on a huge anti-populist campaign to reduce Islamophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism.

Subsequently, racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Muslim attacks fell sharply in 2016 with the former seeing a decline of 58.5 per cent and the latter a drop of 57.6 per cent. These attacks are defined as being fires, violence, degradation, and threats – comments, inscriptions, insulting letters.

In this year, attacks on Christian places of worship have increased by 17.4 per cent in 2016 compared to 2015. Racist attacks, meanwhile, dropped by 23.7 per cent (608 versus 797).

The sharp drop in incidents of an Islamophobic or anti-Semitic nature was welcomed by the French government, who credited the figures as the “fruit of the government’s action plan”.

“Thanks to an unprecedented mobilisation of state services, we have already achieved very encouraging results, as evidenced by the figures for 2016. This gives us much satisfaction”, said interior minister Bruno Le Roux…

College Pledges To Hire Professors Based On Skin Color, Mandates Social Justice Workshops – College Fix

A women’s college is planning to hire new professors based on the color of their skin because of the “demonstrated benefits” of nonwhite faculty.

Whether such faculty benefit the college enough to be paid for a full teaching load remains to be seen, however.

After a year of deliberation, the Barnard College Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion released a set of draft recommendations last week with the aim of improving “representation, inclusion, and social justice” in the classroom and on campus.

Beyond hiring a new C-level official to oversee diversity efforts, the recommendations include mandatory social justice workshops for all community members and extra academic support specifically for racial minorities.

The effort is so expensive that Barnard, which is affiliated with Columbia University, will have to launch a new fundraising campaign to pull it off, as the recommendations acknowledge.

Everyone ‘will be expected to participate’

The task force was created to “increase the representation of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented and socially distinctive backgrounds” and to “create a campus-wide culture and commitment that values diversity.”…

Why Dems Love Suicidal Immigration Policies – David Kupelian

In “The Snapping of the American Mind,” I comprehensively prosecute the case that not only is what we call “the left” irrational and basically insane, but it is also driving millions of Americans right over the edge – into extreme anger, faux victimhood, violence, depression, debauchery, addiction, despair and suicide.

The recent hysterical overreaction to President Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting travel from countries known to be terrorist hotbeds illustrates the madness currently consuming many Americans.

First, a reality check: Of all the destructive trends gripping America in recent decades – from ever-expanding government funded by unrepayable debt, to a godless culture glorifying sexual anarchy, to universities morphing into far-left brainwashing centers – none is more disastrous, indeed suicidal, than the way America has been dealing with immigration.

That’s why Donald Trump – echoing Ronald Reagan, who said, “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation” – made immigration, both legal and illegal, his signature issue.

Our nation’s staggeringly perverse immigration policies exert a negative impact on virtually every other big problem Americans face – from an increase in homicides, rapes, robberies, assaults and shootings in our cities, to corruption of our election system, to ever-more-frequent Islamic mass-terror attacks within the U.S., to a degradation of the American identity itself…

Looting, Rape And Murder Break Out In Streets Of Espirito Santo, Brazil After Military Police Go On Strike – Daily Mail

Brazilian troops are being deployed in the state of Espírito Santo after looting, rape and murders broke out after military police went on strike.

The chaos has been compared to the 2014 thriller film The Purge, where people take advantage of the absence of law and order to carry out horrific crimes.

With officers staging a walk-out over conditions, thugs are running riot, with people running rampant with guns and machetes, shops being robbed, buses set on fire and dead bodies are left lying in the street.

The Brazilian federal government today ordered troops into the city of Vitoria, north east of Rio de Janeiro, which has been left at the mercy of criminals.

The defence ministry said soldiers were being sent in ‘due to the serious public safety situation’.

Brazil’s Defence Minister Raul Jungmann visited Vitoria today on a fact-finding mission.

Don’t Fall For China’s Global Baloney – Matthew Continetti

It’s rather sickening to watch self-described liberals embrace China as a responsible power. The headline on the cover of this week’s Economist, which I now read solely to find out what is not the case, is “China: the global grown-up.” The Washington Post purports to explain “Why China will be able to sell itself as the last liberal great power.” These articles, besides being wrong, have the distinction of following the line set by Beijing itself: “China may lead globalization movement,” says propaganda outlet CCTV.

How one can argue that a Communist oligarchy that practices mercantilism and industrial and diplomatic espionage, builds islands in contravention of international law, disappears lawyers and writers critical of the regime, feeds its people a steady diet of ethno-nationalist propaganda, threatens America’s allies, enables the North Korean psycho-state, recently sailed its aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait, massively censors the Internet, and has some of the worst air pollution in the world is “liberal” in any sense of the term is beyond me. Ironic, isn’t it, that the same press that examines every utterance of Donald Trump with Talmudic scrutiny is utterly credulous when Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who is quite self-consciously modeling himself after Mao Zedong, tells the elite assembled at Davos that he will defend free trade and – I had to laugh – immigration. How many Syrian refugees are there in China?

Credit to Xi, though, for putting one over on self-described globalists and others so eager to embrace foreign critics of Donald Trump that they are more than happy to check their belief in human rights at the door…

Trudeau Booed At Town Hall As Polls Show His Horrific Approval Ratings – USA Politics Today

Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approval ratings have fallen to the lowest since he took office almost 4 years ago.

“Those are the worst numbers Forum – or any other pollster – has registered for Trudeau since he became prime minister,” the firm notes.

The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary he was met with multiple protestors and hecklers.This pushback comes after statements he has made about “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy.However this comment is not the only reason for his low approval ratings as Trudeau’s approval ratings dropped ten percentage points in November when he came out and praising Communist dictator Fidel Castro.

Trudeau who was almost assured to win the 2018 elections is now in trouble as the approval gap between his Liberal Party and the rival Conservatives is closing.

Trudeau responded to hecklers by saying “As a teacher, I try not to reward bad behaviour by giving them too much attention,”

This comment about teachers came as the heckler and protesters started holding up signs reading “Go Back to Teaching Drama.”

Trudeau’s toughest moment during the town hall, however, was not the booing, but answering a question from a blue collar worker from Calgary who asked him why he is “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy.This heckler said to Mr Trudeau..

IG Investigating Obama Regime Cyber Attacks On Georgia Election System – Daily Caller

Feds have launched an investigation into why the Department of Homeland Security hacked into the Georgia state governmental network, including its election system, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

John Roth, inspector general for DHS, wants to know why the agency broke protocol on its way to 10 unprecedented attacks on the system overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp – who is also one of the most vocal critics about the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”

A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.

Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Kemp have clashed over a federal government designation of election systems as “critical infrastructure.” Kemp called it “political power play to federalize elections.”

Johnson sparked a firestorm among state-level secretaries of state – Democrat and Republican alike – when he announced Jan. 6, two weeks before leaving office, that he was unilaterally issuing the designation.

If Roth’s investigation shows Johnson or his subordinates deliberately used federal cybersecurity resources to penetrate a state election system in order to pressure a state official over a policy dispute, it could represent a significant scandal for Johnson and for the outgoing Obama administration…

Study: Obama Had Worst Record Before Supreme Court In Modern History – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
President Barack Obama had the worst record before the Supreme Court in modern history, losing half of the cases argued before the High Court in his two terms, according to a new study.

While liberals point to legalizing same-sex marriage and the upholding of Obamacare subsidies as cementing the former president’s legacy, the study reveals Obama had a much weaker record with the Supreme Court than previous presidents.

The academic study written by Washington University professor Lee Epstein and University of Chicago law professor Eric Posner found Obama had the “worst record of any President” since Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact, his presidential performance before the Supreme Court “may be the worst since the Zachary Taylor administration” in the 19th century…

Dear Bernie, Meet The “Big Mac ATM” That Will Replace All Of Your $15 Per Hour Fast Food Workers – Zero Hedge

Dear Bernie, as you continue in your never-ending “Fight for $15”, we thought you might benefit from a simple example of how economics work in a real life, functioning, capitalistic society. You see, Bernie, labor, much like your daily serving of crunchy granola, is just another “good” that businesses can choose to consume more or less of, depending on price. And, just to be crystal clear, when the price of labor (i.e. wages) increases, businesses tend to consume less of it.

Finally, our dearest Bernie, when misinformed politicians radically disrupt labor markets by setting artificially high base prices, like your proposed $15 federal minimum wage, then businesses simply stop consuming labor completely and instead replace that labor with this “Big Mac ATM Machine.”

So, you see Bernie, pretty soon all those McDonald’s workers that you promised a “fair living wage” to make Big Macs, will have absolutely no wages at all courtesy of your “Fight for $15.”

Of course, as the Daily Caller points out, the “Big Mac ATM” is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to low-skilled jobs that will be automated as a result of the $15 minimum wage that has already been passed in several states across the country.

Wendy’s, another popular fast-food establishment, announced plans in May to start installing self-serving kiosks at some of its over 6,000 locations later in the year. The chain is replacing cashiers and other low-skilled jobs with computers and automated machines because, as Wendy’s president Todd Penegor told Investor’s Business Daily, it has to compensate for wage hikes…

Police Sweep In, Make 14 Arrests At Portland Anti-Cop Protest – The Oregonian

Small, scattered protests throughout Wednesday came to a head downtown and again in Northeast Portland as protesters blocked roads and police arrested 14 people.

A group of about 30 people gathered in Pioneer Courthouse Square in the afternoon, calling for the dismissal of Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman. Clad mostly in black with many wearing bandanas over their faces, they stepped into the intersection of Southwest Yamhill and Sixth Avenue, blocking cars, buses and a MAX train.

Within minutes, cars and buses started honking and angry bystanders began yelling for the demonstrators to move. A car tried to push past, but the group refused to move. The driver eventually drove his car away in reverse…

Mary Tyler Moore, TV Icon, Dies At 80 – Variety

Television great Mary Tyler Moore, the beloved star of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died Wednesday in Connecticut, her publicist confirmed. She was 80.

“Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine,” read the statement from Mara Buxbaum, her longtime rep. “A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”

The vivacious brunette performer transformed the image of women on television first as Van Dyke’s sexy, vulnerable wife Laura Petrie and then as single career girl Mary Richards in her own series. Her work in the two series brought Moore five Emmy Awards, in 1965, 1966, 1973, 1974 and 1976. She won another Emmy for 1993 TV special “Stolen Babies.”

Moore was also a powerhouse producer via her MTM production company with then-husband Grant Tinker, producing her own series as well as “The Bob Newhart Show” and spinoff series “Rhoda” and “Lou Grant,” among others.

She combined wholesomeness and sex appeal with cracker-jack comedic timing. In many ways Moore was a throwback to Hollywood golden era leading ladies like Myrna Loy and Jean Arthur, but with a decidedly updated twist.

Her role as Laura Petrie, the suburban wife of comedy writer Rob Petrie, also represented a step forward for the portrayal of women on television…

Trump Orders Construction Of Border Wall, Targets Sanctuary Cities – Fox News
.

President Trump signed executive actions Wednesday ordering the construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and targeting sanctuary cities, following through on campaign promises that energized his base – and outraged his critics – during the 2016 campaign.

The orders cover a range of immigration enforcement measures. The marquee item is a directive to pursue a southern border wall.

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”

The first order calls for the “immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border,” and directs the DHS secretary to take “all appropriate steps to immediately plan, design, and construct” the wall using authority under existing law…

California Asian Restaurant Gives Diner ‘Seen Rat’ Discount – American Mirror

Seeing a rat scurrying around in a restaurant may be enough for any diner to lose her appetite, but apparently the experience is now good enough for a discount, too.

A patron of Fat’s Asian Bistro in Folsom, California allegedly saw a rat while eating at the restaurant last Thursday, claiming it “ran around her feet” during her meal.

Hot 98.3 reports the woman “who believed she would be speaking to a manager at Fat’s Asian Bistro after reporting the incident, was instead handed a receipt with a $30.95 ‘SEEN RAT’ discount.”

That amounted to a roughly 30% decrease in her $116.80 bill.

“The manager put it verbatim what the guest saw or stated, that’s not normal practice,” Restaurant Group Manager Kevin Fat tells News 10.

“In our 14 years in Folsom, we have not experienced something like this before.”

It’s not clear why the manager didn’t inquire, but instead simply offered the discount.

“That’s something that that manager at the time thought was appropriate, [it’s a] learning lesson,” Fat says.

According to the owner, restaurant staff immediately notified pest control, who found no evidence of the rat.

“For example there were no droppings, there were no live or dead bodies, no nesting, no gnawed food packages,” Kelly McCoy, a health inspector from the Sacramento County Environmental Management Department, says…

Trump State Department Freezes Obama’s $221M Gift To Palestinians – World Israel News

Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.

The Trump administration announced it is freezing the move.

The State Department is reviewing the last-minute decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221 million dollars to the Palestinians.

Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

The funds – supposedly intended for reconstruction in Gaza and good governance programs for the Palestinian Authority – were being blocked by at least two Republican lawmakers- Ed Royce (R-CA), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger (R-TX), who sits on the House Appropriations Committee – in response to Palestinian attempts to join international organizations, from which it intended to launch more international campaigns against Israel and before a peace deal with Israel.

Such holds are generally respected but are not legally binding.

When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “[Trump] is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”…

Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover – Daily Caller

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries – who oversee all election machinery – appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson surprised and outraged state election officials with his Jan. 6 action, just two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump was to assume the presidency.

ohnson tried to portray his move as part of the Obama administration’s effort against Russian government hacking of Democratic Party emails during the presidential campaign.

But state officials retort that election machines and the infrastructure are not connected to the Internet and therefore are immune to cybersecurity attacks.

Incoming DHS Secretary John Kelly indicated in written testimony prior to his confirmation he was troubled by Johnson’s directive.

“The notion that DHS can or should exercise some degree of influence over state voting systems is highly controversial and appears to be a political question beyond the scope of DHS’ current legislative cyber mandates,” Kelly wrote…

Texas Governor Abbott Threatens To Cut Funding To Travis County Over Illegal ‘Sanctuary City’ Policies – Fox News

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott threatened to cut funding for one county after its sheriff announced the agency would be scaling back its cooperation with federal immigration.

Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez announced last week she’s scaling back the amount of aid her department provides federal immigration agents in detaining suspects who might be in the country illegally, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Starting Feb. 1, sheriff’s officials will begin honoring so-called immigration holds or “detainers” placed by federal authorities only when a suspect is booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of capital murder, aggravated sexual assault and “continuous smuggling of persons.”

Otherwise, federal agents must have a court order or arrest warrant signed by a judge for the jail to continue housing a person whose immigration status is in question.

“The public must be confident that local law enforcement is focused on local public safety, not on federal immigration enforcement. Our jail cannot be perceived as a holding tank for ICE or that Travis County deputies are ICE officers,” Hernandez said.

Hernandez’s announcement came as Texas Republicans are gearing up for a new fight to ban so-called sanctuary cities in the current legislative session.

Abbott responded to the announcement, tweeting his office “will cut funding for Travis County adopting sanctuary policies.”

“Stiffer penalties coming,” Abbott’s tweet said…

Trump is widely expected to be more sympathetic to Israel’s settlement policies than the fiercely critical Obama administration, and has also vowed to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem. Israel’s nationalist government has welcomed the prospective change in policy, but it also risks igniting Palestinian or even regional unrest.

Trump Orders Media Blackout At Government Agencies: Bans Use Of Social Media, Bars New EPA Contracts – Zero Hedge

It wasn’t just the EPA.

Earlier today, we reported that the Trump administration instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants.

Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday and reviewed by The Associated Press, detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency’s social media accounts. On Monday, the Huffington Post reported that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter.

Cited by The Hill, Myron Ebell, who leads the Trump EPA transition, confirmed the freeze to ProPublica. “They’re trying to freeze things to make sure nothing happens they don’t want to have happen, so any regulations going forward, contracts, grants, hires, they want to make sure to look at them first,” Ebell told ProPublica. Trump’s pick for EPA director, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, has frequently challenged agency policy in court.

The Trump administration reportedly told the Department of the Interior to stop tweeting from its accounts over the weekend after the National Park Service’s Twitter account retweeted a post about the crowd sizes at Trump’s inauguration Friday. The agency brought back its accounts on Saturday.

Asked if the EPA had been gagged, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Tuesday: “I don’t know… we’re looking into it… I don’t think it’s a surprise we’re going to review the policies but I don’t have any info at this time.”…

Planned Parenthood: ‘We Don’t Offer Prenatal Care’ – WorldNetDaily

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is on record stating her business is essential to American women because of the prenatal care it offers.

She is emphasizing that point as a move develops in Congress to withhold the half-a-billion taxpayer dollars that each year goes to the abortion-industry behemoth.

The funding must continue, Richards said, because prenatal care is among “the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for.”

The problem?

Planned Parenthood “offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” according to a Tempe, Arizona, spokeswoman for the business.

That’s right. The service Planned Parenthood says is so important, it doesn’t provide.

The nonprofit Live Action, in a new video investigation, found 92 out of 97 Planned Parenthood centers contacted admitted they would refuse to provide any prenatal care.

Of the other five, one said it was not accepting new patients, and another said it could provide vitamins.

“No, see, we don’t see pregnant women as a way of giving prenatal care, we see pregnant women, um, you know, if they are considering other options,” was from Planned Parenthood in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“No, we don’t do prenatal services. I mean, it’s called Planned Parenthood, I know it’s kind of deceiving,” said a Merrillville, Indiana, spokeswoman…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama Scores The Worst Legislative Record In History – Washington Times

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is how Lopez won their hearts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some of the dialogue recorded from the video:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama Commutes Sentence Of Bradley (Chelsea) Manning, Who Gave Classified Documents To WikiLeaks – Chicago Tribune

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He refused to take the bait.

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

Each time, he refused.

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

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

King avoided attacking Trump.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vote-A-Rama Ends With Senate Passing Obamacare Repeal – Breitbart

The Senate is already rolling back President Barack Obama’s legacy.

It passed the continuing resolution, S. Con.Res. 3, that tears away the fees, taxes and subsidies from the 201o Patient Protection and Affordable Cart Act, Obamacare, shortly after 1:25 Thursday morning, 51-to-48.

All Republicans, except for Sen. Rand Paul (R.-KY), voted for the resolution. Paul criticized the budget resolution for not addressing the federal debt and for not having a companion replacement bill. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-CA), who is recovering from a scheduled medical procedure was absent from the chamber.

As senators waited for their names to be called by the clerk, Paul approached the clerk’s desk from side and whispered: “No.”

All Democrats and the two Independents who caucus with Democrats voted against the resolution.

Soon after they voted, virtually all Republicans left the floor. Among the handful staying behind were Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-KY) and Majority Whip John Cornyn (R.-Texas), along with Sen. John R. Thune (R.-S.D.), Sen. Roy Blunt (R.-MO) in the front. McConnell sat quietly at his desk, but Cornyn stood tall in the well watching the votes come in.

Judge Rules Woman Can’t Sue Trump For Calling Her A “Dummy” On Twitter – CBS News

Donald Trump can’t be sued for defamation by a political strategist who said her reputation was trashed after then-candidate Trump called her a “dummy” on Twitter during last year’s presidential campaign, according to a judge’s decision made public Tuesday.

Manhattan state Supreme Court Judge Barbara Jaffe ruled that though Mr. Trump’s tweets about public relations strategist and Republican consultant Cheryl Jacobus were “rife with vague and simplistic insults,” they were expressions of opinion protected by the First Amendment.

“Thus, although the intemperate tweets are clearly intended to belittle and demean plaintiff,” they wouldn’t prevent her from working as a consultant and political commentator, Jaffe wrote in a 20-page decision signed Monday.

Jacobus’ lawyer, Jay Butterman, vowed to appeal the decision, adding that the ruling had effectively given “now President-elect Donald Trump a free pass to trample on the free speech rights of any critic.”

Larry Rosen, Mr. Trump’s attorney, called Jaffe’s decision “well-reasoned.” A transition spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The case has its roots in a February appearance Jacobus made on CNN, in which she said the Republican candidate’s presidential campaign had not been transparent about its financing.

Jacobus had previously had two meetings with then-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in the summer of 2015 about a possible job with the campaign…

Michigan Man Issued Parking Ticket In His Own Driveway – Zero Hedge

The state of Michigan is not exactly known for its balmy weather this time of year.

And residents reasonably do what they have to do to cope with often extreme winter temperatures.

Last Thursday a man named Taylor Trupiano of Roseville, Michigan did what a lot of people do in cold climates.

He walked out of his house, started his car, turned on the heat, and went back inside for a few minutes while his engine and vehicle interior warmed up.

According to Mr. Trupiano, he was only inside for about 7 or 8 minutes.

But by the time he came back to his car, there was already a parking ticket on his windshield– with a fine totaling $128.

Some local police officer had apparently driven by, noticed the vehicle was unattended, written up this heinous infraction, and left.

There are so many things wrong with this picture it’s hard to know where to begin.

First off, the citation that Mr. Trupiano received was a parking ticket. Yet his car was parked on his own private property.

Let that sink in: this man received a parking ticket while his car was parked on his own property.

You can’t even park your car on your own property anymore without being in violation of some series of laws, rules, or local ordinances.

Navy Submariner Invokes Hillary Clinton Defense In Bid For Clemency Over Classified Photographs – Washington Times

A former Navy submariner sent to prison for photographing his ship’s classified engine compartments has filed a presidential clemency request, arguing that President-elect Donald Trump should realize the sailor was a “scapegoat” amid the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material.

The paperwork was filed Monday with the Justice Department’s office of the pardon attorney, which now will conduct an investigation.

The case of former Machinist Mate 1st Class Kristian Saucier has become a cause celebre for conservatives. They watched the young sailor go to prison for carelessness with classified information while Mrs. Clinton avoided any punishment from the Obama administration.

The inmate’s mother, Kathleen Saucier, became his public advocate in TV interviews during the presidential campaign. She told The Washington Times that her message to Mr. Trump, who takes office Jan. 20, is: “I would like to say to Mr. Trump that I believe that he’s our hope to re-evaluate the way things are done in our government and that we, as American patriots, should never have to be in the position that myself and my family and I am sure many others have been.”

Saucier pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to a charge of unauthorized retention of defense information and was sentenced Aug. 16 to a year in prison. For what he calls a “keepsake,” he took six cellphone pictures of his work area aboard the nuclear attack submarine USS Alexandria in 2009. They remained in his phone…

Trump Selects David Shulkin As VA Secretary – Daily Caller

GOP President-elect Donald Trump has selected current Department of Veterans Affairs official David Shulkin to serve as head of the agency.

In his first press conference since July, Trump announced Wednesday that he was picking Shulkin, current under secretary for health, to serve as secretary of the VA.

Such a move is monumental, as Shulkin, if confirmed, would be the first non-veteran to ever serve in the position, which may come off as odd to some observers.

Trump emphasized during his campaign how highly he thinks of veterans, and so has tapped top generals for positions, namely retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis for secretary of defense, retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly for secretary of Homeland Security and former Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn for national security adviser.

Shulkin was picked for his current position by President Barack Obama in 2015 and has testified numerous times before Congress about VA scandals, meaning he will be somewhat of a familiar face to legislators and also personally familiar with the process of being endlessly questioned.

The selection process for the position of VA secretary was much lengthier than initially anticipated and involved many candidates dropping out of the running and gaining favor, losing it and gaining it again. Several times, Pete Hegseth, former CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, was believed to be a top candidate for the post, just like former GOP Sen.

NYT Accuses CNN, BuzzFeed Of Peddling “Fake News” Over Russia Report – Zero Hedge

In a fascinating retort by the left-leaning NYT to the story of the day, namely the CNN-BuzzFeed narrative based on an unverified 35-page memo allegedly prepared by a UK intelligence officer, even “the paper of record” takes the two media outlets to town, and in an article titled “BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Stirring Debate” essentially accuses them of doing what CNN has accused so much of the ‘alternative media’ in doing when distributing “fake news.”

Here are the key excerpts:

The reports by CNN and Buzzfeed sent other news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, scrambling to publish their own articles, some of which included generalized descriptions of the unverified allegations about Mr. Trump. By late Tuesday, though, only BuzzFeed had published the full document.

Shocker: Intelligence Report Shows Released GITMO Terrorists Are Returning To Terrorism – WFB

A senior House Republican urged President Obama on Tuesday to “immediately halt” the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees, citing a new intelligence report that found recently released prisoners were returning to terrorism.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce wrote in a letter to Obama that his administration was knowingly transferring detainees to countries that lack the ability to prevent terrorists from returning to the “battlefield,” the Hill reported.

“The committee has just received a troubling new report from the intelligence community indicating that former detainees recently transferred out of Guantanamo Bay by your administration are attempting to return to terrorism,” Royce wrote.

“Your efforts to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay cannot come at the expense of U.S. national security,” he continued.

The Defense Department last week transferred four detainees to Saudi Arabia and another one to Cabo Verde in December. It is unclear from Royce’s letter whether these prisoners had attempted to return to terrorism.

The White House told Congress last month it intended to transfer 17 or 18 detainees from the military prison before the close of the Obama administration on Jan. 20. If the administration is successful, 41 or 42 prisoners would remain in Guantanamo under President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump warned the president against pursuing additional transfers before he takes office.

Dean Nelson, board chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation and minister at Salem Baptist Church in Virginia, told the media Monday. “We are here today to make it perfectly clear that this against Senator Jeff Sessions is baseless and that he is more than qualified to be the next attorney general.”

Some in the mainstream media have been accused of trying to paint Sessions as a racist, even before the announcement of 70-year-old Sessions as Trump’s attorney general pick…

Tucker Carlson To Replace Megyn Kelly At Fox News – Market Watch
.

.
Fox News has tapped Tucker Carlson to replace Megyn Kelly in the 9 p.m. anchor slot on Fox News, elevating the veteran conservative journalist to a more powerful perch on the top-rated cable news channel.

Kelly, who had become a sensation at Fox News FOXA, -0.43% after a 12-year career, announced this week she is leaving for NBC News, where she will host a weekly news program and a daytime show. Her last Fox News show is Friday evening.

Carlson, 47 years old, recently joined Fox News to take over the 7 p.m. slot vacated by Greta Van Susteren. He has written for a variety of media outlets over the years and gained national prominence as one of the hosts of CNN’s “Crossfire,” representing the political right. In recent years, he co-founded the conservative site the Daily Caller…

Lawyer: Afghan Murderer Attacked Cops With Claw Hammer Because Left-Hand Drive Britain Is Too Stressful – Breitbart

An Afghan migrant, who was convicted of beheading a woman in the Netherlands, walked unchecked into the UK where he went on to brutally attack two police officers with a claw hammer.

Jamshid Piruz’s lawyer defended his actions by insisting the “offence was committed at a time of stress for my client” as he “was in a foreign country” and was “very confused by the vehicles driving on a different side of the road,” reports to the Daily Mail.

He had been sentenced to 12 years in jail for slaughtering a female tenant in the Netherlands in 2006. The judge rejected his insanity plea, and court documents said he was “inspired by Taliban movies” and had acted “intentionally and with premeditation”.

However, no alarm was raised when he entered the UK because Mr. Piruz was a permanent resident of the Netherlands and could take advantage of European Union (EU) open borders.

Furthermore, under EU rules, other member states have no compulsion to inform the UK about convicts and dangerous persons who could enter the country, and some nations do not even keep such records.

When inside the UK, the unemployed 34-year-old began his crime spree within days by assaulting a member of staff at Gatwick Airport. Yet, he was back on the streets days later after being released by local magistrates.

He then, on January 7 2016 attacked two police officers with a claw hammer, hospitalising one with head injuries…

Democrat Representative Tells Tucker Carlson His Son Can Get Out Of Obamacare If He Never Has Kids – Daily Caller

A heated debate between Tucker Carlson and Rep. Jim Himes on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday night ended with the Connecticut Democrat telling the Fox News host his son doesn’t have to pay for maternity care as long as he agrees to never have children.

“Your argument is disingenuous,” Himes shot at Carlson, prompting the Daily Caller founder to laugh and respond, “no it’s not.”

Why can’t they just buy catastrophic plans that suite their needs,” Carlson shot back at Himes. “Because they’re subsidizing other people who lobbied you and every other member of Congress, the Democrats, with money to include all of this stuff they don’t need.”

“You know that’s true.”.

“How about this,” Himes conceded. “Let’s say your 22-year-old son should not have to pay for maternity care or the possibility that he may have a child someday.”…

Sore Loser Faces 53 Charges For Harassing And Threatening State Lottery Office Because She Hasn’t Won The Jackpot – Real Strategy

Some people just can’t lose gracefully. Then again, in this particular instance I’m talking about the state loterry, which has also been referred to as, “a tax on people who flunked math”.

One Philadelphia, Pennsylvania woman, 47-year-old Towanda Shields, isn’t just frustrated that she keeps losing that big jackpot on her scratch off tickets. She’s outright pissed. She’s so pissed, in fact, that she has called the state lotto office dozens of times and threatened the lives of pretty much everyone there.

Via Yahoo! News:

“From the calls and stuff I’ve listened to, she’s basically completely obsessed with the lottery and the fact that she doesn’t win upsets her very much,” Detective Robert Appleby said. “She would get really sexually explicit with her insults.”

Appleby said that in late October, Shields said someone would die at the retail store where she buys tickets. He said she has also told lottery employees she had searched for them online, knew where they lived and had hired someone to hurt their family members…

“She basically taunted me the one time when I spoke to her as well – ‘I switch phones. Y’all will never figure out where I am,’” Appleby said.

She likes to end some of her threats with the lottery tagline “Keep on scratchin’”.

Shields claims the First Amendment gives her the right to make the threatening calls, so she keeps buying cheap burner cell phones to continue making threatening phone calls to the lotto office. Due to some of the information she provided in her over 21 voicemails the office retained, the cops were able to determine her identity easily enough, so the burner phones aren’t really helping her all that much…

Israel’s ‘Flying Car’ Passenger Drone Moves Closer To Delivery – Reuters

After 15 years of development, an Israeli tech firm is optimistic it will finally get its 1,500 kg (1.5 tonne) passenger carrying drone off the ground and into the market by 2020.

The Cormorant, billed as a flying car, is capable of transporting 500kg (around half a tonne) of weight and traveling at 185 km (115 miles) per hour. It completed its first automated solo flight over terrain in November. Its total price is estimated at $14 million.

Developers Urban Aeronautics believe the dark green drone, which uses internal rotors rather than helicopter propellers, could evacuate people from hostile environments and/or allow military forces safe access.

“Just imagine a dirty bomb in a city and chemical substance of something else and this vehicle can come in robotically, remotely piloted, come into a street and decontaminate an area,” Urban Aeronautics founder and CEO Rafi Yoeli told Reuters.

Yoeli set up the company, based in a large hanger in Yavne, central Israel, in 2001 to create the drone, which he says is safer than a helicopter as it can fly in between buildings and below power lines without the risk of blade strikes.

There is still plenty of work required before the autonomous vehicle hits the market.

The Cormorant, about the size of a family car and previously called the ‘Air Mule’, is yet to meet all Federal Aviation Administration standards and a test in November saw small issues with conflicting data sent by on board sensors…

Ignorant Masses Shocked By Philly Beveage Tax Impact – Burning Platform

Check out the receipt pictured below and you realize why the country just elected Donald Trump. Liberal Democrat scumbag mayor Jim Kenney and his entirely Democrat city council thought it was a brilliant idea to ram a beverage tax down the throats of Philadelphians last year. They were doing it for the chilruns. It’s always for the chilrun. The ignorant masses bought the load of bullshit because they don’t understand maff. They understand it now. The tax went into effect on January 1 and the sticker shock is infuriating the ignorant masses.

This receipt for a 10 pack of flavored water shows a 51% beverage tax. It gets even better. PA has a sales tax of 6%. Philly already charges another 2% (for the chilruns) to make the sales tax 8%. These bastards now charge the 8% on the original price plus the beverage tax. Last week this purchase came to $6.47. Today it is $9.75.

Now ask yourself, who drinks the most sugary drinks? That’s right. Obese uneducated poor people who are likely to be scraping by on food stamps or very low incomes. Kenney and his liberal minions have fucked over their main voters. This tax is going to drive grocery purchases outside the city and hurt small restaurant owners. It isn’t benefiting kids. It’s funding the bloated pensions of teachers and government employees. Overall tax revenue will decline. Democrats are complete idiots when it comes to economics. Taxing their people to death is destroying Philly.

As a side note, PA, which already had the highest gas tax in the country, increased it by another 8 cents per gallon on January 1…

Liberals Lose It Over Hilarious New Show ‘The Real Housewives Of ISIS’ – Mad World News

A new BBC comedy, depicting brides of terrorists in a spoof reality show-style sketch, has been criticized for being “insensitive.” The skit is called, “The Real Housewives of ISIS,” which is based upon the popular reality television show from the U.S. that was recently exported to Britain. Of course, the “tolerant” left is losing it.

In one clip, actresses dressed as the brides of jihadists snap selfies for Instagram, model suicide vests and pine over the fact that their husbands fantasize about the slew of virgins they will receive after killing in the name of Allah.

Many have reacted unfavorably to “The Real Housewives of ISIS,” with one critic writing on Facebook, “The humor is only funny if you look down on someone else and enjoy seeing them unhappy because they are not white and Christian.”…

Julian Assange Reveals Podesta’s Password Was ‘Password’, Says A Child Could Have Hacked His Emails – Fox News

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview that a teenager could have hacked into Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s computer and retrieved damaging email messages that the website published during last year’s election campaign.

“We published several… emails which show Podesta responding to a phishing email,” Assange said during the first part of the interview, which aired on “Hannity” Tuesday night. “Podesta gave out that his password was the word ‘password’. His own staff said this email that you’ve received, this is totally legitimate. So, this is something… a 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.”

Assange also claimed that Clinton herself made “almost no attempt” to keep her private emails safe from potentially hostile states during her tenure as secretary of state.

“Now, was she trying to keep them secure from Republicans? Probably,” Assange said. “But in terms of [nation-] states, almost no attempt.”

Hannity interviewed Assange at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. The Australia native has been holed up there for five years battling extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges, which Assange denies.

WikiLeaks published more than 50,000 emails detailing dubious practices at the Clinton Foundation, top journalists working closely with the Clinton campaign, key Clinton aides speaking derisively of Catholics and a top Democratic National Committee (DNC) official providing debate questions to Clinton in advance…

Trump Nominates Jay Clayton Chairman Of The SEC – Fox Business

President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday he intends to nominate Walter “Jay” Clayton, an attorney who advises clients on major Wall Street deals, to lead the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Jay Clayton is a highly talented expert on many aspects of financial and regulatory law, and he will ensure our financial institutions can thrive and create jobs while playing by the rules at the same time,” Trump in a statement.

“We need to undo many regulations which have stifled investment in American businesses, and restore oversight of the financial industry in a way that does not harm American workers.”

Clayton is a partner in the New York office of law firm Sullivan & Cromwell who specializes in advising clients on public and private mergers and acquisitions and capital-raising efforts. He also helps companies navigate regulatory and enforcement actions, including a number of cases that involved mortgage securities.

Clayton has worked for high-profile clients, including the initial public offerings of Alibaba Group Holding Company and Oaktree Capital Group.

During the height of the 2008 financial crisis, Clayton also worked on major deals involving big banks, including Barclays Capital’s acquisition of Lehman Brothers’ assets, the sale of Bear Stearns to JP Morgan Chase, and the U.S. Treasury Department’s capital investment in Goldman Sachs , according to his law firm’s website…

Suspected Rebels Storm Philippine Jail, 132 Inmates Escape – Daily Mail

Nearly 160 inmates escaped after suspected Muslim rebels attacked a jail in the southern Philippines before dawn Wednesday, and at least six people were shot dead as pursuing government forces traded fire with gunmen, officials said.

Acting Provincial Jail Warden Supt. Peter John Bongngat Jr. said a guard was killed and an inmate was wounded in an initial gunbattle when dozens of gunmen stormed the North Cotabato District Jail in Kidapawan in one of the country’s largest jailbreaks in recent years. Kidapawan city in Cotabato Province is about 930 kilometers (580 miles) southeast of the capital Manila.

Bongngat and Kidapawan police chief Supt. Leo Ajero said gunfire continued for hours after the attack as army troops and police, some in armored tanks, hunted through the surrounding forests for the 158 escaped inmates and the gunmen who freed them.

Bongat said the heavily armed attackers were suspected to include members of the outlawed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and guerrillas who broke away from the main Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which has signed a peace deal with the government.

Of the six killed in the shootout, at least five were escapees, while another six were recaptured, officials said.

The jail held more than 1,500 inmates, including Bangsamoro members facing murder charges for a series of bombings in the province, officials said. It was the third attack in the provincial jail facility since 2007.

Local village leader Alexander Austria told The Associated Press by telephone that he and his men captured one escaped man…

France Claims ‘No Incident’ After 1,000 Cars Torched On New Year’s Eve – Breitbart

French authorities have been accused of a cover-up after claiming New Year’s Eve “went off without any major incident” despite more than 1,000 cars being torched in arson attacks.

Police also arrested 454 people during the night, 301 of whom were taken into custody.

The phenomenon of torching cars at the end of the year is a “tradition” in France, with different departments and suburbs of the capital, Paris, competing to cause the most destruction.

The practice is thought to have begun in the 1990s in Strasbourg’s deprived, high-immigrant districts, which quickly spread to other poor areas.

Senate Republicans Introduce Obamacare Repeal Resolution – Washington Free Beacon

Sen. Mike Enzi (R., Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, introduced a budget resolution on Tuesday that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

The resolution utilizes the reconciliation process to repeal elements of the health care law, since Republicans do not have a 60-seat majority that would allow them to overcome a Democratic filibuster. Reconciliation could be used to repeal parts of Obamacare with only 51 votes, similar to how Democrats used the reconciliation process to amend tax and spending provisions contained in Obamacare in 2010.

Republicans can use reconciliation to “fast-track” repeal and send legislation to President-elect Donald Trump’s desk as soon as possible.

Enzi’s resolution directs relevant House and Senate committees to achieve $1 billion in deficit reductions over the next decade.

The resolution would also reserve funds so Republicans can replace the Affordable Care Act with a patient-centered health care reform.

“Americans face skyrocketing premiums and soaring deductibles,” Enzi said. “Insurers are withdrawing from markets across the country, leaving many families with fewer choices and less access to care than they had before – the opposite of what the law promised.”

“Today, we take steps to repair the nation’s broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors,” he said…

Moroccan Woman Caught Smuggling “Refugee” Into Spain In A Suitcase – Evening Standard

A young woman has been caught trying to smuggle an African refugee into Spain inside her suitcase.

The 22-year-old Moroccan woman was stopped by Spanish border control in Ceuta, a Spanish city in north Africa.

She could face up to seven years in prison for human trafficking if found guilty

Police said they grew suspicious when the woman looked unnecessarily nervous after passing through a third control point to enter the city, one of Europe’s two land borders with Africa.

On stopping the woman, border guards found a 19-year-old man from Gabon curled up inside her case.

He was conscious and unharmed but was taken to hospital for a routine check.

It is not the first time police have found migrants hiding in the luggage of travellers entering Spanish territory from north Africa.

In May 2015 police found an eight-year-old boy hiding in the suitcase of a different Moroccan woman.

His father, who was suspected of having paid the woman to smuggle his son into the country, was later arrested on the Spanish border.

Leftist Governor Of New York Proposes “Free Tuition” For Public Universities – Zero Hedge

There is little doubt that easy access to federally subsidized student loans has contributed to the astronomical increase in the cost of attending college in the United States. After all, what 18 year old would turn down $200,000 in free money to party for 4 years? As an added bonus, when you figure out upon graduation that your degree in anthropology if fairly worthless, you can always just move back in with mom and force taxpayers to pick up your debt burden. Anything less would be a substantial “triggering” event and we just can’t have that.

As we noted roughly a year ago, the amount of student debt outstanding is on track to reach nearly $17 trillion by 2030… which is clearly enough artificial demand to send the price of almost any commodity product soaring.

Well, apparently New York’s Governor doesn’t think that misinformed government policies are doing nearly enough to drive up college tuition costs. As a result, he has decided to jump on the Bernie Sanders bandwagon with a new proposal that would provide free tuition at public state and city colleges to any student whose parents earn less than $125,000.

As the New York Times notes, Cuomo’s plan could apply to as many as 1 million New York families though it was not “immediately clear how the program would be paid for”… which is just a minor detail anyway.

Mr. Cuomo hopes for a quick start for his idea, with a three-year rollout beginning in the fall, though it will require legislative approval, a potential snag when the governor and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been at odds over a pay raise and other issues…

Pit Bull Attacks Owner For Trying To Put A Sweater On Him – American Mirror

A Florida family learned the hard way that their dog “Scarface” doesn’t do sweaters.

Police responded to the Tampa home of Brenda Guerrero around 2:30 p.m. Friday after the 52 year old went outside to put a sweater on Scarface and the pit bull mix attacked her, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Guerrero’s husband, 46-year-old Ismael Guerrero, attempted to pull the dog off his wife but was also attacked. The couple’s son, Antoine Harris, 22, stabbed Scarface in the head and neck to break up the melee and was also attacked.

“The son tried to save them as well,” Tampa Police Spokesman Eddy Durkin said. “Grabbed the knife and stabbed the dog trying to help them out.”

All three family members eventually retreated to their home and called police, who tried unsuccessfully to get the animal under control before calling in reinforcements, Durkin told WTFS.

Trump To Name Robert Lighthizer U.S. Trade Representative – Wall Street Journal

Donald Trump will name Robert Lighthizer, a former trade official under President Ronald Reagan, to head the U.S. Trade Representative office, the first in a final push of appointments anticipated this week as Mr. Trump fills the remaining senior government vacancies in the run-up to his inauguration, the transition team said Tuesday.

The president-elect is also still considering ways to try to bring into his administration two family members, daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who were close advisers to his campaign.

With a nominee for trade czar position, Mr. Trump has four major positions to fill: the secretaries of Agriculture and Veterans Affairs, the Director of National Intelligence and the head of the Council of Economic Advisers.

A top candidate for agriculture secretary is Sonny Perdue, a former Republican governor of Georgia, two people close to the transition said. Toby Cosgrove, chief executive of the Cleveland Clinic, had been in the running for the VA job but has withdrawn his name.

The appointments would mark the final steps in a transition process that took on a fast clip after a reorganization by Vice President-elect Mike Pence shortly after the November election.

Putin Announces Syrian Ceasefire Deal, Ready To Start Peace Talks; Obama Snubbed Again – Zero Hedge

Yesterday we reported that, in what was the latest “PR fiasco” for the outgoing Obama administration, Turkey and Russia sat down, and appeared on the edge of hammering out a ceasefire plan for Syria between the two nations – something which the UN has been unable to achieve for years – in a deal which would not include the United States and be distinct from separate intermittent U.N.-brokered negotiations, which have so far failed to end the fighting in the proxy Syria war.

Then moments ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed an agreement has been reached on ceasefire in Syria and the start of peace talks.

Quoted by AP, Putin said that Russia and Turkey will guarantee the truce, which is set to begin at midnight. He says it will be followed by peace talks between Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government and the opposition, and that the Syrian parties would take part in talks to be held in Kazakhstan, without specifying a date.

Syria’s military confirmed that it had agreed to a nationwide cease-fire starting at midnight.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu says the truce will include 62,000 opposition fighters across Syria, and that the Russian military has established a hotline with its Turkish counterpart to monitor compliance.

Food Stamp Fraud At All-Time High As $70M Is Wasted In 2016 – Fox News

Debbie Reynolds Passes Away Just One Day After Daughter Carrie Fisher – The Guardian

Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds has died aged 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, famed actor and author Carrie Fisher.

Her death was confirmed by her son, Todd Fisher.

“The last thing she said this morning was that she was very, very sad about losing Carrie and that she would like to be with her again,” Fisher said. “Fifteen minutes later she suffered a severe stroke.”

Reynolds died just hours after she was taken to Cedars Sinai medical center from her son’s house in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon.

“The only thing we’re taking solace in is that what she wanted to do was take care of her daughter, which is what she did best,” he added.

“Hello everybody, we just had some very good news, because of what is happening and the spirit and the hope, I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States,” he told reporters at Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday evening. “They have taken them from other countries. They are bringing them back to the United States.”

Trump also confirmed that OneWeb would be hiring more workers as well. He reached the deal after working with SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, a billionaire investor in technology who currently owns 80 percent of Sprint and has invested $1 billion in OneWeb…

University Of Kansas Students Being Offered Buttons Spelling Out Their Preferred Gender Pronouns – Daily Mail

University of Kansas students are being offered buttons through the school’s library system meant to make their preferred gender pronouns clear.

Various University of Kansas Libraries employees now sport the square-shaped pins, with extra ones also doled out to interested students, the Lawrence Journal-World reports.

Library leaders say the buttons are part of the library system’s ‘You Belong Here’ marketing effort meant to lure undergraduates and ensure that they feel welcome, including transgender students.

The buttons come in three versions: ‘He him his,’ ”She her hers’ and, for people who don’t identify themselves as male or female, ‘They them theirs.’

‘Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual,’ a sign at the libraries reads. ‘Each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone’s gender.

Pronouns matter! Misgendering someone can have lasting consequences, and using the incorrect pronoun can be hurtful, disrespectful, and invalidate someone’s identity.’

Expressing gender identity through buttons or other means has cropped up elsewhere in the interest of inclusion.

Buttons were given out at the start of this semester at Vermont’s Champlain College, home to a new Women and Gender Center. Students and teachers at the University of Vermont also have worn name tags and made business cards with their preferred pronouns…

Congress Moving To Cut Funding To UN In Wake Of Anti-Israel Vote – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Other punitive actions by Congress could include expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil and scaling back ties with foreign nations that voted in favor of the controversial measure, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the situation both on and off the record.

The Obama administration is still under bipartisan attack for its decision to help craft and facilitate the passage of a U.N. resolution condemning the construction of Jewish homes in Jerusalem, a move that reversed years of U.S. policy on the matter…

List: 17 Reported Post-Election Pro-Trump ‘Hate’ Crimes Debunked – American Mirror

The mainstream media breathlessly reported on the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center’s tracking of alleged “hate” crimes against minorities by Donald Trump supporters after the election.

The activist organization reported in Mid-December:

This is the fourth update in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s effort to collect reports of bias-related harassment and intimidation around the country following the election. This update spans the period from November 9 to December 12.

The SPLC collected reports from news articles, social media, and direct submissions via our #ReportHate intake page. The SPLC made every effort to verify each report, but many included in the count remain anecdotal…

While the total number has surpassed the 1,000 mark, reports have slowed down significantly compared to the days immediately following the election. The reports are nonetheless as heartbreaking and infuriating as before.

The Center claims 1,094 so-called “bias-related harassment and intimidation” incidents have taken place since Trump’s election.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the left-wing echo chamber (ie. CNN studios): one-by-one, many of the reported incidents were proved to be hoaxes.

Reddit user Onewalleee created a list of 17 incidents later debunked:

* The Texas family whose car and motorcycle were burned, and whose garage was spray-painted with “nigger lover”, only to have his wife later reveal that her husband had hoaxed the community by doing it himself. Debunked

* The black, “white supremacist” arrested for the infamous burned-down black church which had “Vote Trump” written on it: Debunked…

Obama To Punish Russia For Imaginary Election Hack – Daily Caller

White House officials are scrambling to punish Russia for election interference in ways that the incoming Trump administration will find difficult to reverse.

This punishment won’t solely take the form of additional sanctions. According to officials, it could also include measures like covert cyber operations, The Washington Post reports.

Officials are attempting to modify an existing executive order from April 2015 that gave President Barack Obama authority to punish foreign hackers abroad by expanding it to cover attempts to influence domestic elections.

The National Security Council determined this fall that existing authority would not be enough on its own.

One possible way to strike back at the Russians would be to deem electoral systems as critical infrastructure…

100% Of U.S. Warming Is Due To NOAA Data Tampering – DCSB

Climate Central just ran a piece titled The U.S. Has Been Overwhelmingly Hot This Year, which the Washington Post has picked up on. They claimed the U.S. was “overwhelmingly hot” in 2016, and temperatures have risen 1,5°F since the 19th century.

The first problem with their analysis is that the U.S. had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95°F, compared with the long term average of 4.9%. Climate Central is conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.

They also claim US temperatures rose 1.5°F since the 19th century, which is what NOAA shows.

The problem with the NOAA graph is that it is fake data. NOAA creates the warming trend by altering the data. The NOAA raw data shows no warming over the past century

The adjustments being made are almost exactly 1.5°F, which is the claimed warming in the article.

The adjustments correlate almost perfectly with atmospheric CO2. NOAA is adjusting the data to match global warming theory. This is known as PBEM (Policy Based Evidence Making.)

The hockey stick of adjustments since 1970 is due almost entirely to NOAA fabricating missing station data. In 2016, more than 42% of their monthly station data was missing, so they simply made it up. This is easy to identify because they mark fabricated temperatures with an “E” in their database…

Evidence Supports Claim That Hillary Clinton Armed ISIS – WorldNetDaily

Documents made public by the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch and separately by Wikileaks Julian Assange back up Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s assertion on Tuesday that U.S.-led coalition forces have given support to terror groups, including ISIS in Syria.

In an interview with Democracy Now’s Juan González on July 25, Assange said the thousands of documents released by Wikileaks through its “Hillary Clinton Email Archive” contain some 1,700 emails that connect Clinton to al-Qaida and ISIS in both Libya and Syria, demonstrating Clinton supplied weapons to ISIS via Syria.

“So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates,” Assange said in the interview…

Court Rules State Department Can Be Required To Ask Attorney General To Recover Clinton Emails – Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding today’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in a case that would require Secretary of State John Kerry to seek the help of the attorney general in recovering additional Hillary Clinton emails:

The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.

The appellate ruling reverses a decision in which the District Court declared “moot” a Judicial Watch’s lawsuit challenging the failure of Secretary of State John Kerry to comply with the Federal Records Act (FRA) in seeking to recover the emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other high level State Department officials who used non-“state.gov” email accounts to conduct official business (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. John F. Kerry (No. 16-5015)). According to the FRA, if an agency head becomes aware of “any actual, impending, or threatened unlawful removal… or destruction of [agency] records,” he or she “shall notify the Archivist… and with the assistance of the Archivist shall initiate action through the Attorney General for the recovery of [those] records.”…

Israel Green-Lights Settlements Following Obama’s UN Back-Stab – Daily Caller

Israeli authorities gave the go-ahead for the construction of hundreds of new settlement sites in East Jerusalem Monday after a United Nations resolution condemned Israel over the issue.

The defiant move comes after the U.S. government did not veto the UN condemnation of Israeli settlements, a marked change in U.S. policy. The Obama administration affirmed the decision to abstain in the vote on the resolution, despite being able to defeat it with its veto power, saying that Israeli settlements “puts at risk the two-state solution, as does any continued incitement to violence.”

“Israel is a country with national pride, and we do not turn the other cheek,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in the wake of the resolution. “This is a responsible, measured and vigorous response, the natural response of a healthy people that is making it clear to the nations of the world that what was done at the U.N. is unacceptable to us.”

President-elect Donald Trump more closely aligns with Netanyahu’s position, and lashed out at the UN in the wake of the vote.

Beyond approving more settlements, the Israeli government has cut diplomatic contact at the UN with countries that voted in favor of the resolution, and summoned the U.S. ambassador to Israel to admonish him.

Palestinian leaders immediately hailed the vote as a victory.

“Now we can talk about the boycott of all settlements, the companies that work with them, et cetera, and actually take legal action against them if they continue to work with them,” the foreign minister of the Palestinian Authority told Palestinian media…

Dumbasses Decide To Rob Georgia Gun Store With Predictable Outcome – WMAZ

The owner of a gun shop who shot back against two armed suspects is speaking out after the incident, saying he had no choice but to fire at the men, killing one.

Bullet holes are still visible on the front on the Dixie Gun and Pawn shop Monday night after what detectives describe as a gun battle broke out earlier in the day.

Police said two armed men burst in Jimmy Groover’s store in broad daylight Monday and held the gun store owner at gunpoint.

“Get down on the floor, get down on the floor or I’ll kill you,” Groover recalled the suspects telling him. “Then they shot at me.”

What the men weren’t aware of is that Groover had a gun of his own. Feeling like his life was on the line, he pulled the trigger, shooting and killing one of the suspects. The other is still on the run.

Groover returned to his Cobb County business after the ordeal and showed detectives and family members how he pulled the gun off his hip to defend his life.

“I had no other choice. I had no other choice. I hate that it happened,” he told 11Alive. “I’ve been doing this 30 years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I never wanted this to happen but I want to go home at night, too.”

This is not the first time this gun and pawn shop has been burglarized. In fact, it’s happened around 20 times. Groover has added security cameras, bars on the windows and keeps all guns in safes at night in efforts to thwart would-be-criminals…

French Students Strip Naked For End-Of-Year School Photo With Teachers – Daily Mail

Schools across the world gather their pupils together every year for the traditional class photo.

But one school in France decided to make a statement with their class picture by stripping down to their underwear and even getting their teacher to join in.

The pupils from science and technology class STD2A at the Lycee Federic Mistral high school in Avignon said they wanted to do something original for their end of term snap.

So the youngsters, aged 17 and 18, decided to take off their clothes and create a cheeky picture.

And as well as the pupils being involved in the stunt, their teacher also shed his clothes and also joined in.

However, to spare their blushes, those in the picture held strategically placed black cards to protect their modesty.

The picture was then shared online and according to the local.fr, it was entitled ’50 Shades of SDT2A’.

And soon after the class picture went viral with it being shared online thousands of times and even making its way on to several French news sites.

Many praised the picture and said it truly showed ‘freedom of expression.’

However, many expressed shock, given the age of the pupils and one person wrote: ‘Teacher and students in underwear.

Muslim Groups Denied Government Hand-Outs In Sweden Because “Their Activities Are Not Compatible With Democracy” – USA Politics Today

The whole world is in a huge turmoil with radical Islam. Moderate muslims are trying to save their legacy and their brand in the world as peaceful religion.

Several Muslim organizations in Sweden recently wrapped up their annual spending as they prepared to receive another taxpayer-funded payment of $300,000 from the government. However, as soon as they handed in their application, they were given some devastating news from the state that they never saw coming.

Mad World News reported that Young Muslims of Sweden and Sweden Democratic Youth (SDU) have been milking taxpayers for over $25 million annually for years now.

Earlier this year, they were approved for nearly $300,000 by the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF). Unfortunately for them, when they came to collect their money for 2017, they were told that they had been DENIED all funding because “their activities are not compatible with democracy.”

WOW, BOOM! Haha, this is great! Sweden is turning a new page with Islam.

After the government found that the groups were not actually promoting anti-extremism, anti-racism, or Western values and laws, they immediately cut off all of their state funding. Specifically, they confirmed that the Young Muslims of Sweden promotes both discrimination and racism towards non-Muslims and has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We make the assessment that the SDU has statements in its political manifestos and Young Muslims of Sweden has elements in its operations which mean that these organizations do not live up to the standard we want an organization to have to get government funding,” said Lotta Persson, of the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF) which hands out the grants…

61 Percent Of Veterans Voter For Trump; Only 34 Percent Backed Hillary – Breitbart

Bob Carey, director of Military Affairs and Veterans Engagement for the Republican National Committee, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about the record support of military veterans for Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

Marlow found it dismaying, if not exactly surprising, that the establishment media did not make a bigger deal about a candidate with no military background receiving such enormous support from veterans.

Carey applauded Trump for addressing veterans’ issues “as clearly and convincingly and repeatedly as he did.”

“He talked about the real problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, how it’s in need of fundamental reform, and he talked to what all of these veterans are experiencing when they do go to the Department of Veterans Affairs – which is basically a Byzantine bureaucracy that seems to be more interested in perpetuating their own jobs than taking care of veterans,” he said.

“And then he also talked about national security issues in real, clear, and unequivocal manner, talking about the threat of terrorism and the need to build up our armed forces,” Carey continued. “Many of these veterans have recently come off active duty, where they go on five, six, seven, eight deployments overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. In large part, it’s because they have this really compressed deployment schedule because there’s just not enough forces. And he talked about that. He talked about how we need to increase the size of our armed forces, just to meet our current commitments. That was first and foremost.”…

Administrative Costs More Than Doubled After Implementation Of Obamacare – Washington Free Beacon

Administrative costs more than doubled after the implementation of Obamacare, according to a report from the American Action Forum.

In 2013, before the Affordable Care Act was implemented, insurers’ administrative costs totaled $414 per person. The year after Obamacare was implemented, administrative costs more than doubled to $893 per person.

“During the debate leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many advocates of that legislation argued that one of the benefits of establishing a government-run health insurance exchange in each state would be a reduction in administrative costs associated with private health insurance,” the report states.

By reducing administrative costs, advocates also projected that premiums and national spending on health care would decline.

However, the administration announced in October that premiums on the exchanges would increase by double digits and recent data found that administrative costs have increased as well.

The exchanges did reduce insurers’ administrative costs from $414 per person in 2013 to $265 per person in 2014, but the federal government ended up spending $628 per person to make up that cost. In the end, administrative costs totaled $893 per person with the assistance of government-run health exchanges.

“While insurers indeed appear to have spent less on administrative costs, both on a per-covered-person basis and as a percentage of total premiums since the law went into effect, government spending necessary to set up and operate the exchanges vastly exceeded the amount saved by private-sector insurers, leading to an increase in total administrative costs,” the report states…

Leftist Snopes Co-Founder Accused Of Embezzling Company Money, Buying Hookers – Daily Caller

After divorcing from his first wife, Barbara Mikkelson, David Mikkelson married Elyssa Young, a former porn star and current escort who now works for Snopes as an administrator, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail also revealed that top Snopes “fact-checker” Kim LaCapria claimed on her personal blog that she has “posted to Snopes” after smoking marijuana. As TheDC previously revealed, LaCapria describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and once claimed that Republicans fear “female agency.”

As originally reported by TheDC, Snopes almost exclusively employs leftists as fact-checkers, many of whom have exhibited a clear distaste for Republican voters. TheDC could not identify a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background.

The mythbusting site has butchered the truth on more than one occasion.

Documents Show Michelle Obama Used Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Friends And Family To Vacation With Her – US Herald

Michelle Obama is finally leaving the White House, and not a day too soon. She thought she would get off without anyone know how much she ripped out of taxpayers hands. Recently discovered classified documents show exactly how Michelle Obama has been giving taxpayer dollars to her mother and daughters.

Michelle Obama has garnered a reputation for her many trips overseas, costing American taxpayers millions of dollars. However, it seems that there was something else going on on these trips that she never wanted the public to find out.

Recently uncovered classified documents show that on these overseas trips Michelle Obama put in for her reimbursements to be paid out to her staffers that accompanied her for the past 8 years.

At first this almost sounds like a nice gesture, but if you look at who the staffers listed to be paid out were, you’ll notice that among them are her own daughters and her own mother. Michelle listed her mother and daughters as “senior staff” on her many vacations.

So they not only got to some of the most exclusive vacation destinations in the world, they got paid to do so.

“According to an Air Force flight passenger manifest for the multi-million dollar trip, which included multiple days of sightseeing and a family safari, Michelle listed her daughters as ‘Senior Staff.’ White House officials told True Pundit that as senior staff on an official diplomatic trip, Sasha and Malia could have also been paid a daily stipend in addition to the free flight, lodging, meals, sight seeing and safari.” [Via True Pundit]…

Muslim Assclown Storms Kids’ Christmas Play Yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ – WorldNetDaily

Children were left “petrified” when, during a depiction of the traditional Christian Christmas story, a Somali asylum seeker suddenly jumped on stage and started preaching from the Quran, according to a report in the Express.

The report said the unnamed Somali, 24, was wearing a white robe when he jumped up, shouted “Allahu akbar,” and began his rant.

Eventually he was overpowered by several men attending the children’s presentation.

“The children are totally anxious and petrified, we were terribly afraid for our children,” a witness told the newspaper.

It happened in the Austrian town of Oberndorf, which is in the state of Upper Austria near Schwanenstadt.”

It caused a wave of horror among the children and their parents.

He had just appeared at the venue and had been standing next to the stage where the nursery school-age children were on stage, the Express said.

“Witnesses were afraid that some weapons might be hidden in his rucksack though it later proved to contain nothing but clothes,” the Express said, when one witness shared the fear of many.

“You never know what his intentions are,” the witness said.

‘Death By China’ Author To Head Trump Trade Office – Financial Times

Donald Trump plans to create a National Trade Council inside the White House to oversee industrial policy and is appointing a China hawk and one of the architects of the populist economic message to run the new group.

Mr Trump has chosen Peter Navarro, a Harvard-trained economist, to head the NTC, the Financial Times has learnt. The author of books such as Death by China and Crouching Tiger: What China’s Militarism Means for the World has for years warned that the US is engaged in an economic war with China and should adopt a more aggressive stance – a message that the president-elect sold to voters across the US during his campaign.

“I read one of Peter’s books on America’s trade problems years ago and was impressed by the clarity of his arguments and thoroughness of his research,” Mr Trump said. “He has presciently documented the harms inflicted by globalism on American workers, and laid out a path forward to restore our middle class.”

The Trump transition team described Mr Navarro as a “visionary economist” who would “develop trade policies that shrink our trade deficit, expand our growth, and help stop the exodus of jobs from our shores”. His appointment is the second restructuring of trade policy that will see Mr Trump attempt to follow through on his focus to resurrect manufacturing, and create more industrial jobs, in the American economy.

The FT reported earlier this month that Mr Trump had tapped Wilbur Ross, a billionaire investor who has been nominated as secretary of commerce, to oversee his trade policy, creating a new inter-agency process that would cut the influence of the US Trade Representative, the office which has for years negotiated trade deals…

The Tunisian terror suspect wanted in connection with the Berlin Christmas market atrocity spent four years in an Italian jail before moving to Germany, his father revealed today.

Anis Amri settled in Italy after leaving his hometown of Tataouine, Tunisia seven years ago to travel to Europe as an illegal immigrant, his father claimed in a radio interview.

Amri, who has a €100,000 reward on his head, spent four years in an Italian jail after burning down a school before leaving the country for Germany last year.

Since then the 23-year-old has been arrested at least three times but German authorities have allowed the him to slip through their clutches time after time – even though Amri has been identified as an ISIS supporter known to have received weapons training.

He had been under covert for much of the time since his arrival in Germany last year…

Fake Navy Seal Slapped With 3 Years In Prison After Scamming Charity – Washington Standard

A Navy SEAL faker was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for scamming money out of a charity after he promised he could save kidnapped aid workers.

Not only will 36-year-old William Burley have to languish in prison for three years after pleading guilty to wire fraud in August, but the judge also ordered him to pay restitution to International Aid Services America of $32,454. IAS is a non-profit group that provides clean water and sanitation, the Chicago Tribune reports.

“We’re just glad to see the justice process work appropriately and glad for that outcome,” IAS President Jonathan Wildt said.

According to a Department of Justice release, after three IAS workers were kidnapped in Somalia while engaged in humanitarian work, Burley approached the non-profit organization and said that he had the skills and experience to negotiate and recover the employees. To bolster his credentials, Burley told IAS a series of tall tales, namely that he was a highly decorated Navy SEAL and a consultant for the Navy and the Pentagon.

IAS paid Burley $30,000, so that he could travel to Kenya to begin the hostage negotiations.

He utterly failed to persuade the captors, and so he returned to the U.S. in 2012 and developed a plan to rescue the aid workers.

At this point, the non-profit was suspicious of Burley, so executives contacted Don Shipley, who is well-known for exposing stolen valor. Shipley posted the encounter on YouTube in 2012 and asked Burley to name members of his graduating class from the Navy SEALs. Burley couldn’t name a single one….

Los Angeles Launches Legal Defense Fund For Illegal Aliens Facing Deportation – The Hill
.

.
Los Angeles will launch a $10 million legal defense fund for immigrants facing deportation, officials announced on Monday.

The fund will cover legal counsel for residents who may face deportation under President-elect Donald Trump, who has promised to crack down on illegal immigration.

“People who have built their lives in America have rights, and they deserve all the protections that our legal system provides,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) in a statement.

Los Angeles joins a growing list of cities introducing similar funds, including New York City and Chicago. The new $10 million fund – called the L.A. Justice Fund – will go into effect in early 2017. It will be funded by the city government and a private foundation…

Middle Schooler Faces Criminal Charges For Cutting A Peach With A Butter Knife – College Fix

Trying to teach your children some manners at the table? Don’t send them to school with a set of utensils “made for children to learn how to eat properly.”

An 11-year-old Florida girl who brought a butter knife to school at the behest of her parents is facing potential criminal charges from the local state’s attorney, showing the “folly of overcriminalization,” according to David Rosenthal, a visiting legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

Writing in The Daily Signal, Rosenthal blasts school officials and prosecutors for using the criminal justice system to handle “every minor mishap” as a threat to school safety:

The zero tolerance policy prohibits possession of a Class B weapon on school premises. This includes such items as razor blades, nunchakus, shotgun shells, and knives – including “blunt-bladed table knives.” Possession of these weapons is considered a criminal incident and can trigger a host of consequences, including not only a minimum six-day suspension from school, but also a mandatory report to law enforcement…

Surely, there must be someone along the chain of command with the requisite discretion to understand that an 11-year-old cutting a peach with a child’s butter knife is not the type of evil that a school weapons ban is intended to protect against.

Rosenthal notes it’s not just school officials in wacky Florida who see a kid eating a peach as another potential Columbine: A high schooler in Ohio got suspended for five days for a class presentation on “how to make a healthy breakfast,” and another in California was nearly expelled because his parked car had pocket knives left over from a fishing trip…

NFL Security Guard Masturbates In Front Of Fans – New York Post
.

.
A security guard was apparently busted masturbating during a San Diego Chargers game on Sunday – just steps away from the team’s cheerleaders.

A video posted on Facebook shows the unidentified guard seemingly pleasuring himself while facing the cheer section at Qualcomm Stadium during the Chargers’ game against the Oakland Raiders.

“So clearly Elite Security nor the San Diego Chargers care that they have a masturbating security guard at the game,” one horrified woman at the game posted. “Several attempts to call both organizations with no concern for the Charger Girls, Chargers fans or kids. So yeah this happened right in front of us yesterday. WARNING INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT!”

Team officials confirmed the “disturbing actions” of the security guard in an email to The Post.

“The Chargers, Elite Security as well as the San Diego Police Department are aware of the disturbing actions of an Elite Security staff member at Sunday’s game,” the statement read…

Obama Heads To Golf Course After Receiving Reports On Berlin Attack And Russian Ambassador Death – Mediaite

Well, this is what one would call bad political optics.

With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing.

The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador.

From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:

“This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey in Ankara today. The President directed his team to provide updates as warranted.”

Meanwhile, at 10:10 a.m. in Kailua, the press van prepares to depart the rental house where we’ve been holding.

In a following email, we are informed that Obama is leaving the rental home to go play golf.

The President and his motorcade departed the Kailua neighborhood where the First Family rents a vacation home at 10:21 a.m. Spectators on the street threw shakas and recorded photos or video on cell phones as the motorcade made the 10-minute drive to Mid-Pacific Country Club, where the President will be golfing under cloudy skies.

The times listed are local Hawaii time. Obama’s motorcade left his vacation home at 3:21 PM ET.

Currently, the news is dominated by both the assassination in Turkey, which could have large-scale implications on foreign policy and relations, and multiple deaths in Berlin via a truck driving through a market in an incident reminiscent of the Nice terror attack…

Maine Allows Pagan ‘Priest Of Pan’ To Wear Horns In ID Photo – American Mirror
.

.
Pagan minister Phelan Moonsong is reveling in his triumph over the bureaucrats at the Bangor Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The 56-year-old “priest of Pan” has worn a pair of goat horns on his head – strapped on with a piece of 50-pound fishing line – since a member of his Pagan men’s group offered them up when his goat died in 2009, and Moonsong considers them his “spiritual antenna,” The Washington Post reports.

So when a Bangor Bureau of Motor Vehicles worker demanded that he remove the horns to obtain a state-issued identification card, Moonsong refused and sought an exemption for his religious headdress.

The worker took Moonsong’s picture, but “she told me that I had to send in some documentation or religious text to show why it was required for me to have my horns on,” the Pagan priest told the news site…

Thanks To Common Core, U.S. Now Ranks 31st Out Of 35 Developed Nations In Math – Real Strategy

No matter how much money we use to grease the wheels of the U.S. system of education, (at least $8.3 billion for Common Core to date) we’ve failed our children. A new U.S. Department of Education study reveals that U.S. children rank 31st out of 35 developed nations in math. They didn’t fare much better in science, or reading literacy either.

Common core is to to blame, but it is part of a wider network of disenfranchisement in order to keep your children stupid and shallow. Instead of yearning for knowledge, their interests are kept trivial. They can text three words, but not read an entire book, or do simple math.

If you assume that most people in our modern society have about 16 waking hours to use every day, with approximately 8 (or more) of them already spent on work or schooling, several hours commuting, making dinner, getting necessary household chores done, showering, getting ready for the next day etc., you are left with a precious few moments to learn the truth.

The powers which are now being exposed don’t want questioning, awake children. They want ignorant, mindless robots that are easily controlled. They want consumers who don’t question the 8 hours (plus) we already spend working hard so that almost half of our incomes can be taxed, and the other half swindled from us with fractional reserve banking, usury through inflated interest rates, quantitative easing, etc.

They don’t want us to question a lifestyle which allows us no time to spend with our families, spiritual pursuits, and real-life skills or artistry that can greatly enhance our quality of life…

President Asshat Grants Another 153 Commutations, 78 Pardons – Washington Examiner
.

.
President Obama on Monday granted 153 commutations and 78 pardons.

According to the White House, it is the most individual acts of clemency – 231 total – granted in one day by a U.S. president.

The president has now commuted the sentences of 1,176 individuals, including 395 life sentences.

White House counsel Neil Eggleston said the move signifies Obama’s “continued commitment to exercising his clemency authority through the remainder of his time in office.”

Obama has just 32 days left in office and has faced pressure from criminal justice reform advocates to shorten as many sentences as possible before President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

Of the 153 individuals granted a shorter prison sentence, most were sentenced for non-violent drug-related crimes…

Roger Stone Petition Asks Trump To Prosecute Hillary – The Hill

Roger Stone, a longtime ally of President-elect Donald Trump, is petitioning the incoming administration to ask a grand jury whether Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should be criminally prosecuted.

=============================================
Roger Stone
@RogerJStoneJr

No way should @HillaryClinton avoid prosecution #LockHerUp Sign our petition to the @realDonaldTrump Administration http://chargehillaryclinton.com

10:20 AM – 19 Dec 2016
=============================================

Stone’s tweet links to a petition addressed to Trump and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the president-elect’s choice for attorney general, asking them to present evidence against Clinton to grand jurors.

“Either we are a nation of laws or we are a ‘banana republic’ led by criminals,” the petition says. “After the Watergate scandal, the mainstream media told us repeatedly that ‘no person is above the law.’”

“It is premature for the Trump administration to decide whether Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton should be prosecuted,” the petition adds. “In truth, the American people do not yet have a full cataloging of their many crimes.

“We respectfully urge President-elect Donald Trump and Attorney General designate Jeff Sessions to gather all appropriate evidence and submit it to the grand jury to make the potential decision about the Clintons’ potential indictment.”…

12 Killed, 50 Injured In Terrorist Attack At German Christmas Market – Chicago Tribune
.

.
Police said Tuesday that the driver who rammed a truck into a crowded Christmas market in the heart of the German capital, killing at least 12 people and injuring nearly 50, did so intentionally and that they are investigating a suspected “terror attack.”

The truck struck the popular Christmas market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church late Monday as tourists and locals were enjoying a traditional pre-Christmas evening out near Berlin’s Zoo station.

“Our investigators are working on the assumption that the truck was intentionally driven into the crowd at the Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz,” Berlin police said on Twitter.

“All police measures concerning the suspected terror attack at Breitscheidplatz are being taken with great speed and the necessary care,” they said.,,
