Trump Cuts Billions In Aid To International Groups Performing Or Promoting Abortions – Washington Times
.

.
The Trump administration announced a massive expansion Monday of the pro-life Mexico City Policy, issuing guidelines that will strip billions of dollars in aid from international groups that perform or promote abortion.

Originally a ban covering roughly $600 million in family planning money, the Trump policy now applies to all international health care aid doled out by the U.S. government – nearly $9 billion.

The administration said the same amount of money will be paid out but will go only to groups that pledge not to perform or promote abortion as part of their family planning activities.

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson on Monday approved the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance plan, which broadens the scope of the Mexico City Policy…

Trump Conspiracy Theorist Maxine Waters Held Over $200,000 In Russia-Linked Funds In 2015 – GotNews

California Democrat Representative Maxine Waters held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, even while she hypocritically calls for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment over his financial connections to Russia, according to her most recently available House financial disclosure documents.

Waters’s cash-grabbing shamelessness has never known bounds. In 2012, she barely squeaked through a three-year House Ethics Committee investigation after abusing her position to funnel $12 million in bailout money to her husband’s bank.

Her Russian investments will surprise no one in her district, where impromptu signs declaring the congresswoman a “poverty pimp” and a race baiter have been popping up for years.

Waters’ 2015 disclosure statement details her family’s investments in BlackRock’s Russia-connected Global Allocation and Balanced funds.

2015 SEC filings for both funds advise of their involvement in Russian precious metals and securities…

There Is Evidence Seth Rich Had Contact With WikiLeaks Prior To His Murder, Family Private Investigator Claims – WTTG
.

.
It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation’s capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now.

Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich’s work at the DNC.

Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich’s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death…

Fake News Update: General McMaster Says WaPo Story About Trymp Sharing Classified Materials With Russians Is False – Washington Free Beacon

White House National Security Adviser H.R McMaster on Monday defended President Donald Trump by pushing back against the Washington Post article that was published hours earlier claiming that Trump had revealed highly classified information to Russian officials last week.

Trump met with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak the day after he fired now-former FBI director James Comey, where he reportedly relayed highly classified information regarding critical insight into the Islamic State, the Post reported:

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said…

North Korea’s Latest Missile Launch Suggests Progress Toward ICBM: Experts – Reuters

North Korea’s successful missile test-launch signals major advances in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile, such as mastery of re-entry technology and better engine performance key to targeting the United States, experts say.

The isolated country has been developing a long-range missile capable of striking the mainland United States mounted with a nuclear warhead. That would require a flight of 8,000 km (4,800 miles) or more and technology to ensure a warhead’s stable re-entry into the atmosphere.

The North’s official KCNA news agency said the new strategic ballistic missile named Hwasong-12, fired on Sunday at the highest angle to avoid affecting neighboring countries’ security, flew 787 km (489 miles) on a trajectory reaching an altitude of 2,111.5 km (1,312 miles).

The details reported by KCNA were largely consistent with South Korean and Japanese assessments that it flew further and higher than an intermediate-range missile (IRBM) tested in February from the same region, northwest of Pyongyang…

DNC Workers Sue Party For Receiving Sub-Minimum Wages, No Overtime – Washington Free Beacon

Dozens of field workers have filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, claiming the party that is pushing employers to pay a $15 minimum wage and more in overtime failed to pay overtime and minimum wages to its own employees.

Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the field workers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them overtime compensation. Swidler “says the lawsuit seeks ‘fair pay for fair work,’ and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces,” according to CBS Philly.

The 2016 Democratic platform pushed for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a nearly $8 increase from the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama-era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.

Some of the Democrats’ workers put in 80-90 hours per week, according to Swidler, and got only $3,000 per month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” Swidler said…

City Of Charlotte, NC Forced To Pay $1.5M To Fire Investigator After Firing Her Over Politically Incorrect Facebook Post – Firefighting News

In an embarrassing verdict for the city of Charlotte, a jury Thursday found the Fire Department retaliated against former fire investigator Crystal Eschert for raising questions about the safety of construction work at a new office building, awarding her $1.5 million.

The jury rejected Charlotte’s claims that Eschert’s firing wasn’t retaliation. It also cast aside the city’s defense that the firing was necessary because Eschert had made what the city said was an offensive and inflammatory Facebook post.

On Aug. 20, 2014, about 10 days after the shooting of Michael Brown set off riots in Ferguson, Mo., Eschert wrote this post on her Facebook page, which was restricted to her Facebook friends:

New Variant Of ‘Ransomware’ Begins To Spread – Zero Hedge

Governments and companies around the world began to gain the upper hand against the first wave of the unrivaled global cyberattack this morning.

More than 200,000 computers in at least 150 countries have so far been infected, according to Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency. The U.K.’s National Cyber Security Centre said new cases of so-called ransomware are possible “at a significant scale.”

“For now, it does not look like the number of infected computers is increasing,” said a Europol spokesman. “We will get a decryption tool eventually, but for the moment, it’s still a live threat and we’re still in disaster recovery mode.”

The initial attack was stifled when a security researcher disabled a key mechanism used by the worm to spread, but experts warned the hackers were likely to mount a second attack because so many users of personal computers with Microsoft operating systems couldn’t or didn’t download a security patch released in March that Microsoft had labeled “critical.”…

Leftist Bar In Portland, Oregon Offers Free Whiskey For Life To Anyone Who Punches Steve Bannon – Big League Politics

A Whiskey Bar in Portland, Oregon, is offering a reward of “free whiskey for life,” if one of their patrons punches White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

The bar, called Paydirt, is now printing the offer on the bottom of their receipts.

Imagine the outrage if someone on the right solicited violence against anyone in the Obama administration, they would immediately be branded domestic right-wing terrorists. Somehow, seemingly endless calls for violence against the Trump administration are not only acceptable among the left, it is celebrated.

California Governor’s New Budget Includes Millions To Defend Illegal Aliens From Deportation – Breitbart

Maxine Waters Has Passed Just 3 Bills In Last 27 Years, Been Named ‘Most Corrupt’ Member Of Congress 4 Times – U.S. Herald

She is being hailed as “Auntie Maxine” among her admirers in the media who have elevated her to a wise elder stateswoman they can regularly depend on for a rabid anti-Trump quote clip on cable news and that she is African-American only adds to her credentials in the eyes of the Left.

Maxine Waters, U.S. Congresswoman from a district in Los Angeles far away from the leafy, affluent, 70 percent white neighborhood surrounding a private golf club, has been in Congress for nearly three decades, assembling more outrageous quotes than bills passed, but her near obsessive hatred of President Trump has made her a hero to the Left.

While the 78-year-old Waters’ early history could serve as inspirational as one of 13 children raised by a single mother in Missouri who eventually graduated from college and worked as a teacher’s aide, her move into politics, beginning in 1977, started her on a path to personal riches that had less to do with public service than public rabble rousing in the service of stirring racial division…

Germany Confiscating People’s Homes To House Migrants – Gatestone Institute

Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage – one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.

City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012…

CAIR ‘Terrified’ Jury Will Learn Of Its Radical Ties – WorldNetDaily

Eight years ago, the Council on American-Islamic Relations sued the investigators behind a daring, undercover operation that turned up evidence confirming the organization’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and violent Islamic supremacism.

Now, as its case finally heads to trial, CAIR is trying to block the defendants from presenting that evidence and other damaging information to a jury.

Last Wednesday, a federal judge in Washington, D.C., delayed a pretrial hearing scheduled for May 15 to allow more time to address a motion by CAIR to disallow evidence it describes as “anti-Muslim bias.”

“CAIR is terrified that a jury will learn the truth about its pro-Hamas founding and leaders,” said attorney Daniel Horowitz.

He represents David Gaubatz, a co-author of the book that published the evidence, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” and his son, Chris Gaubatz, who conducted the investigation as a CAIR intern…

Banker Wipes Entitled Grin Off Face Of Muslim Woman Whp Refuses To Remove Hijab In Credit Union – Mad World News

Unfortunately for her, things didn’t end well. In fact, she would later leave in tears after a banker inside decided to wipe the grin off her face – and to say it worked is a bit of an understatement.

Detroit School To Hold ‘Muslim Girls Only’ Prom – Heatstreet

Segregation is all the rage these days. Under the banner of “social justice,” more and more schools are dividing their students into increasingly niche groups to provide them with “safe spaces” apart from each other – the polar opposite of inclusivity and integration.

With the goal of creating a “safe space” in mind, a Detroit school has set out to hold a girls-only prom to celebrate traditional Muslim customs. It’s being created for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to regular proms, where attendees are allowed to have fun and dance with members of the opposite sex in good old American tradition.

Hamtramck High School’s girls-only “Princess Prom” was first organized in 2012 by a group of five Muslim girls to give them the opportunity to go to a “safe space” prom. In 2016, 230 girls showed up. This year, they’re expecting at least 250 attendees.

According to Michigan Live, the event is “intended to create a safe space for Muslim girls who normally cover up in hijab to let their hair down in an environment with no boys and no cellphones.”…

North Korea Fires Missile That Lands In Sea Near Russia – Reuters

North Korea, defying calls to rein in its weapons program, fired a ballistic missile that landed in the sea near Russia on Sunday, days after a new leader came to power in South Korea pledging to engage Pyongyang in dialogue.

The U.S. military’s Pacific Command said it was assessing the type of missile that was fired but it was “not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile”. The U.S. threat assessment has not changed from a national security standpoint, a U.S. official said.

Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada said the missile could be a new type. It flew for 30 minutes before dropping into the sea between North Korea’s east coast and Japan. North Korea has consistently test-fired missiles in that direction.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the missile landed 97 km (60 miles) south of Russia’s Vladivostok region.

ICE Detains Illegal Aliens With Prior Deportation Orders Working Construction At Air Force Base – Gateway Pundit

ICE agents have arrested two illegal aliens from Jalisco, Mexico working construction at Travis Air Force Base in California and are working to deport them ASAP.

Mejia and a coworker, Rodrigo Nuٌez from Hayward – both undocumented immigrants from Jalisco, Mexico who have been in the United States for more than a decade – were detained on the base after a military official discovered they did not have valid social security numbers during a routine identification screening and reported them to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE officials have placed both men in expedited deportation proceedings without a court hearing – known formally as “reinstatement” – because they each have old removal orders issued more than a decade ago after border agents caught them attempting to illegally cross the border. Neither of them has criminal records, according to their attorney.

Hate Crime Hoax: Black Man Firebombed Immigrant’s Store, Authored Note From ‘White America’ – American Mirror

A hate crime allegedly perpetrated by “white America” turned out to be hoax perpetuated by a black criminal with an ax to grind against President Trump.

Southwest Border Crossings Drop To Lowest Point In 17 Years – Los Angeles Times

Slowly, the Border Patrol truck cut through the darkness, its headlights illuminating a deserted, sandy road framed by long grass and yellow mesquite trees.

At 10 p.m. on a Friday night, this once-bustling crossing point – a stretch of wild brushland between the Rio Grande and the sprawling Texas border cities of Hidalgo and McAllen – is desolate. The only signs of life, apart from the odd wildcat stalking prey, are Border Patrol agents lurking by the roadside in pickup trucks and SUVs.

Israel Quietly Treats Thousands Of Wounded Syrians – WorldNetDaily

Since 2013, Israeli doctors and nurses have treated more than 3,000 Syrians wounded in the bloody six-year civil war that has ravaged the country, killed some 400,000 people and caused a refugee crisis throughout Europe.

And, if some top officials in the Jewish state have their way, that’s just a start.

As the fighting heats up and with the recent sarin gas attack that killed more than 100 civilians in mind, not to mention a U.S. Tomahawk missile strike, Israeli hospitals are preparing for many more casualties.

Some of the patients are saying their treatment has changed their minds about Israel.

The memorial itself stirs emotion. When anyone, young or old, looks into the polished volcanic rock of the wall, it looks back. At it’s highest point the wall is over 10 feet tall. It envelops its visitors with names of those who lost their lives in a war which lasted nearly two decades…

China Offers Concessions To Avoid Trade War With U.S. – Financial Times

China will offer the Trump administration better market access for financial sector investments and US beef exports to help avert a trade war, according to Chinese and U.S. officials involved in talks between the two governments.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, decided at their first meeting in Florida last week that they needed rushed trade negotiations to produce results within 100 days. The two concessions on finance and beef are relatively easy for Beijing to make.

At present, foreign investors cannot hold a majority stake in securities and insurance companies in China. The country’s largest companies in these sectors, such as Citic Securities and China Life Insurance, have achieved enormous scale in the 15 years since the world’s second-biggest economy joined the World Trade Organisation, making them formidable competitors for new entrants to the market.

The concession to allow majority foreign ownership was discussed during Barack Obama’s administration, when Chinese and US negotiators held several rounds of talks about a bilateral investment treaty, or BIT…

Leftist Governor Bullock Vetoes Bill Banning Shariah Law In Montana Courts – Truthfeed

Montana governor, Steve Bullock vetoed a bill that would have banned Shariah and other foreign laws from being used in Montana courts. Bullock said that the measure would “upend our legal system and debase what we stand for as Montanans and Americans.”

Montana was one of the 13 states considering legislation seeking to prevent the use of foreign law in state courts. While the bill’s focus was not on Shariah law, some supporters specifically spoke out against the religious law used in some parts of the Islamic world…

New Jersey Immigration Lawyer Charged With Visa Fraud, Mail Fraud And Aggravated Identity Theft – Long Valley Patch

A Denville immigration attorney has been charged with stealing the identity of another attorney and submitting fake via applications, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement said in a statement.

Charles Jason Lore, 43, is being charged with visa fraud, aggravated identity theft and mail fraud. ICE officials say he submitted over 250 visa applications claiming his clients as extraordinary achievements in the entertainment industry, something ICE said is a “rare exception.”

Between April 2011 and January 2015, Lore allegedly submitted fraudulent I-129 forms claiming his clients were musicians, actors and artists who deserved temporary nonimmigrant worker visas.

After being questioned by immigration authorities, Lore allegedly stole another lawyers identity and continued to submit fraudulent claims under that lawyers name.

If found guilty, he could face more than 30 years in federal prison…

Muslim Terrorists Bomb Two Churches In Egypt, Killing 44 And Wounding 126 – Toronto Star

Suicide bombers struck hours apart at two Coptic churches in northern Egypt, killing 44 people and turning Palm Sunday services into scenes of horror and outrage at the government that led the president to call for a three-month state of emergency.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the violence, adding to fears that extremists are shifting their focus to civilians, especially Egypt’s Christian minority.

The attacks in the northern cities of Tanta and Alexandria that also left 126 people wounded came at the start of Holy Week leading up to Easter, and just weeks before Pope Francis is due to visit.

Obama’s DOJ Protected Illegal Alien Child Rapist Now Accused Of Murder – Breitbart

An illegal alien who allegedly twice raped his 15-year-old stepdaughter now stands accused of murdering the girl after Obama’s Department of Justice refused to prosecute him on human smuggling charges. ICE officers were never able to deport the man despite a lengthy criminal history that includes charges of assault, burglary, and human smuggling.

Many opportunities to prevent the needless rape and murder of a young Texas girl slipped by the wayside before 36-year-old Armando Rodrigo Garcia-Ramirez twice impregnated his victim, Jennifer Delgado. In 2008, police arrested the Mexican national for assault. A local prosecutor chose to drop the charges, the Washington Times reported. In 2009, Garcia-Ramires found himself in custody – this time, charged with assault. Prosecutors also dismissed this charge.

In 2011, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers took arrested the man and attempted to deport him. A judge granted the man bond and released him. No further information about this case is currently available…

Syria: It Doesn’t Matter Who Used The Chemical Weapons, The Issue Is Extremism And Stability – Sundance

There is a predictable disconnect amid political followers who have not paid close attention to the direct Mid-East visitors to the Donald Trump White House regarding the origin of the chemical weapons use in Syria.

Focusing on who used chemical weapons is a moot point in the larger issue of the Syrian conflict. It doesn’t matter whether ISIS “rebels” deployed them or whether Bashir Assad used them against the “rebels” when contemplating President Trump’s response to stop using them. The victims are Syrians. The regional alliance members don’t care who used them. The message is to stop.

In addition to more than 9,000 fans watching UNC win the NCAA Championship game in the Dean Dome Monday night, thousands more came out to celebrate the win on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.

Just seconds after the Tar Heels defeated Gonzaga 71-65, thousands of fans swarmed Franklin Street at Columbia Street, blocking the intersection.

Chapel Hill officials already warned fans not to light bonfires on the street after the game, but by midnight fans already had three bonfires burning brightly in the intersection.

Also, by 12:05 a.m. Tuesday, young men had climbed street poles on at least three corners of the intersection and were standing on top of the walk/don’t walk signs.

The Franklin Street scene also included a plastic construction barrel, a beach ball and someone with a large umbrella.

After midnight, a large beige couch could also be seen lifted over the heads of fans – and was destined for one of three bonfires.

The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) is nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the Massachusetts Democrat’s office will have to wait longer than most women across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day.

Equal Pay Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual unadjusted gender pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to work to match annual earnings of men. Last year’s figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.

Treasonous Leftists In California Senate Approve ‘Sanctuary State’ Bill – Mercury News

The California Senate on Monday approved a closely-watched bill to shield undocumented immigrants from deportation by limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration agents.

“It is a rejection of President Trump’s false and cynical portrayal of undocumented immigrants as a lawless community,” said Senate leader Kevin de Leَn, who is carrying Senate Bill 54, in a celebratory news conference after the vote.

Texas Deputy Constable Ambushed, Killed Outside Of Courthouse – U.S. News & World Report

The New Jacobins – Richard Cravatts

When Chester Evans Finn, Jr., a former United States Assistant Secretary of Education, observed in 1989 that university campuses had become “islands of repression in a sea of freedom,” he was anticipating a troubling and prevalent trend now poisoning academia, namely, the suppression of free speech. With alarming regularity, speakers are shouted down, booed, jeered, and barraged with vitriol, all at the hands of groups who give lip service to the notion of academic free speech, and who demand it when their speech is at issue, but have no interest in listening to, or letting others listen to, ideas that contradict their own world view.

This is the tragic and inevitable result of a decades of grievance-based victimism by self-designated groups who frame their rights and demands on identity politics and who have been successful in weaponizing this victim status to stifle debate. In the space of the past two months, for example, tendentious and morally self-righteous progressive students, and some faculty, have displayed a shocking disregard for the university’s cardinal virtue of free expression, deciding themselves who may say what about whom on their respective campuses – and purging from campuses those ideas they have deemed too hateful, too unsafe, too incendiary to tolerate or to allow to be heard…

New Emails Reveal Obama, Clintons Led Cover-Up Of Cholera Outbreak In Haiti – The Observer

In October 2010, United Nations Peacekeepers from Nepal infected Haiti’s most significant river system with cholera, inciting the first cholera outbreak in the country in over a century. So far, the epidemic has taken over 10,000 lives, and some estimate that the disease has infected up to 800,000 people. Those who caused the outbreak – and covered it up – have not assumed responsibility, including the United Nations and several government agencies under the Obama administration, such as Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Slate’s Jonathan Katz reports, “Nepal hadn’t invaded Haiti on its own: Its troops were part of a multinational force created by the Security Council, specifically at the behest of the George W. Bush administration in 2004. For the 13 years since, it has remained in Haiti largely to carry out U.S. policy – at a discount.”

“It’s a democratic vote, a referendum to leave, and I actually think it will be a fairly clear break. It won’t be a soft break or a hard break but a clean break.”

Mr Malloch, who has previously sparked the European Union’s fury for his support of Brexit, also suggesting trying to pushing the UK for leaving will only harm the bloc.

Moscow And Beijing Join Forces To Bypass U.S. Dollar In Global Markets, Shift To Gold Trade – Zero Hedge

The Russian central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14, marking a step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system, and to phase in a gold-backed standard of trade.

According to the South China Morning Post the new office was part of agreements made between the two neighbours “to seek stronger economic ties” since the West brought in sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis and the oil-price slump hit the Russian economy.

According to Dmitry Skobelkin, the deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia, the opening of a Beijing representative office by the Central Bank of Russia was a “very timely” move to aid specific cooperation, including bond issuance, anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism measures between China and Russia.

The new central bank office was opened at a time when Russia is preparing to issue its first federal loan bonds denominated in Chinese yuan. Officials from China’s central bank and financial regulatory commissions attended the ceremony at the Russian embassy in Beijing, which was set up in October 1959 in the heyday of Sino-Soviet relations…

Jeff Sessions: Sanctuary Cities May Lose More Than Funding – Washington Times

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Bill O’Reilly in a recent “O’Reilly Factor” appearance on Fox News that sanctuary cities may face more backlash from the administration than a loss of funding – that the White House is considering other punitive measures, as well.

Good. No punishment is too small for sanctuary cities that go out of their way to help the criminal element. But for the left, this must be like the twisting of the proverbial knife.

“We are looking at other possibilities that would be detrimental [to these cities],” Sessions told O’Reilly. “In the future, we can put requirements on some.”

Sessions didn’t detail what those requirements might entail. And he didn’t elaborate on what the other possibilities could be.

But he did double down on the long-running White House message that cities in violation of federal immigration policy face a very real threat of losing taxpayer money.

“Right now, under the Obama administration, they sent out grant notices that require people to assert they’re in compliance with the laws and [that] threaten cutting off of various funds if they didn’t comply,” Sessions said…

NFL Owners Approve Oakland Raiders’ Move To Las Vegas – NFL

The Raiders are leaving Oakland again, this time for the neon lights of Las Vegas.

In a decision that would have been hard to fathom not so long ago, NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday at the Annual League Meeting to approve the Raiders’ proposal to relocate to Las Vegas.

The decision comes after years of fruitless efforts by Raiders owner Mark Davis to build a viable stadium in Oakland. The failure to do so, which goes back to Davis’ late father Al Davis’ stewardship of the team, led to exploring stadium options in Los Angeles and eventually Las Vegas, where Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in public funding for a new stadium. The Autumn Wind will no longer blow through Raiders games as the team is expected to move into a planned $1.7 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas.

In what is sure to be an awkward process, the Raiders won’t be moving immediately. The new stadium in Las Vegas is not expected to be ready until 2020. The Raiders plan to play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, Davis said in a statement…

Citing the dangers of bovine flatulence, a spokesperson for Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility stated that cow farts are dangerously unregulated and preventable. According to a letter sent to the Senate Committee on Environmental and Natural Resources, in addition to smelling bad and causing global warming, cow farts can irritate your eyes, cause memory loss, and even death.

Brooklyn Prosecutor Charged With Forging Judges’ Signatures For Illegal Wiretaps – WNBC

A supervising prosecutor from the Brooklyn district attorney’s office forged judges’ signatures in order to obtain illegal wiretaps and then used those wiretaps to illegally monitor cell phone calls and text messages, federal prosecutors alleged in an indictment Monday.

Tara Lenich, 41, who was an assistant district attorney with the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, allegedly created those fake judicial orders for more than a year – from June 2015 to November 2016 – in order to get the wiretaps.

She then, prosecutors allege, used equipment from the DA’s office to “intercept, monitor and record the communications to and from the two cellular telephones.”

Lenich didn’t comment to reporters after she was arraigned Monday. Her attorney also declined to comment.

She was initially arrested last November and fired from the DA’s office once the allegations came to light.

Army Sergeant Faces Discharge Over Bin Laden Raid Intelligence That Obama Made Public In 2011 – Washington Times

The Army is booting out a 13-year public affairs sergeant for including in an unclassified government email the same information about a special operations unit and Osama bin Laden found on Army.mil web pages.

The irony in the narrative of Staff Sgt. Ricardo Branch is that his motive was to keep classified material away from public view.

His disclosure in a private Army email is also the same information as told by his commander in chief, Barack Obama, in May 2011 when the president visited Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to personally thank the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), or “Night Stalkers,” for its critical role in killing al Qaeda leader Osamabin Laden.

Tony Podesta Made $500K Lobbying For Chinese Firm Convicted Of Illegal Sales To Iran – Daily Caller

Trump Picks Son-In-Law Jared Kushner To Head New ‘Office Of American Innovation’ – The Hill

President Trump is reportedly creating a new White House innovation office that will be led by his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.

The idea is to help meet some of the goals Trump pledged to accomplish during his campaign, such as working to improve veteran care and fight opioid addiction.

The new office, which is described in the Post report as a “SWAT team” to fix the federal bureaucracy, is working with tech giants such as Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. It is expected to pull ideas from the business world and may consider privatizing some government functions.

$540,701,000,000: U.S. Property Taxes Hit Record In 2016 – CNS

Americans paid a record $540,701,000,000 in property taxes to state and local governments in fiscal 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

That was up $16,748,620,000 – or about 3.2 percent – from $523,952,380,000 in property taxes (in constant 2016 dollars) that state and local governments collected in fiscal 2015.

The prior national record for property taxes was set in fiscal 2009, when they hit $527,850,500,000 in constant 2016 dollars. Fiscal 2016’s record total of $540,701,000,000 was up $12,850,000,000 – or about 2.4 percent – from that previous record.

Trump Signs Four Bills To Reverse Obama-Era Regulations – Washington Examiner

President Trump signed a series of bills on Monday to reverse rules and regulations authorized by the previous administration on education, federal land use and fair pay.

The stream of bills reached the Oval Office through the use of the Congressional Review Act, an obscure law passed in 1996 that has only been used once before to repeal agency rules. The law allows Congress to scrap regulations with a simple majority within 60 days of the rule’s implementation.

“Only one time in our history did a president sign a bill to cancel federal regulations,” Trump told a group of governors and federal lawmakers at the White House on Monday.

The president said he will continue to use the CRA to eliminate as many “job killing regulation[s]” as he can find.

Now, here we are more than one month into the presidency of Trump and as Tax Season nears, it seems the frenzy to get eyes on the Donald’s tax returns has once again reached a fever pitch. And sure enough, The New York Times in front and center again leading the charge, this time from top columnist Nicholas Kristof.

On Monday, Kristof arguably solicited a lowly IRS agent to commit a serious felony by leaking Trump’s tax returns to his newspaper, assuming, of course, his tweet was not merely in jest – though there seems to be little indication that Kristof was joking in the tweet…

ISIS Slaughtering Christians In Egypt – USA Politics Today

Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is under siege from a growing number of militant Islamists including Isis who are reportedly not only bombing but gunning down Coptic Christians, who now number less than 1000. In 2011 there were reportedly over 5000, so over 4000 have been murdered by Islamic Militants.

ISIS recently released a video in which they call for “fellow jihadists” to murder the Coptic Christians of Al Arish which they refer to as their “favorite prey.”

In that 20-minute video (not featured,) ISIS claims responsibility for the January bombing of the central Coptic church in Cairo that killed nearly 30 people, saying that it was only the beginning…

Social Justice Syndrome: ‘Rising Tide Of Personality Disorders Among Millennials’ – PJ Media

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.

All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.

Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).

Of course, not every SJW has a personality condition, but sufferers from High Conflict disorders are often drawn to extreme beliefs and behaviors under the illusion that they are acting politically…

Ukraine Has Lost Billions On The Trade Agreement With The EU In Year One – Zero Hedge

The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between Ukraine and the European Union, which came into force on 1 January 2016, was aimed at helping the East European economy to recover; however, the results after the first year fell far short of Ukraine’s expectations. The former Soviet Republic lost €2.2 billion more than it lost in 2015 on trade with the EU. While imports from the EU have surged, exports have barely grown.

As Polish media reports, the European Union has flooded Ukraine with goods, which is contrary to the aim of the free trade agreement: the document assumed the asymmetric openness of the markets in Ukraine’s favour.

According to the Eurostat data, EU’s exports to Ukraine grew in 2016 by 17.6%, from €14bn to €16.5bn, whereas Ukraine’s exports to the EU increased by 1.9%, i.e. from €12.8bn to €13bn. As a result, Ukraine’s trade deficit with the EU has surged from €1.2bn to €3.43bn!..

Illegal Alien Busted For Raping 3-Year-Old Girl – USA Politics Today

New York Mayor Hides 500,000 Illegals, Vows To Ignore Immigration Laws – Breitbart

Remember When Obama Spied On Congressmen Opposed To The Iran Deal? – Daniel Greenfield

When the media puts on its befuddled face over Trump’s allegations, remember what Obama was doing little more than a year ago.

Further, the Journal reports that intercepted conversations between Israeli leaders confirmed Israel’s knowledge of the talks, as well as its intent to undermine any nuclear deal with Iran by leaking its details. When Netanyahu and his top aides came to Washington to talk with Jewish-American groups and members of Congress to lobby against the deal, the NSA was there to pick up the conversations.

Senior officials told the WSJ that those conversations collected by the NSA raised fears “that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.”…

Sweden’s Leftist Integration Minister Admits Lying To BBC About Rape Stats – Breitbart

Sweden’s ruling liberal party Integration Minister has been forced into an embarrassing U-turn after she falsely told BBC the number of reported rapes in the country was falling.

“The level of rapes is not actually high in Sweden”, she also said, after attacking former UKIP leader Nigel Farage – who recently said Malmo was the “rape capital of Europe” – claiming he “doesn’t really know what he is talking about.”

Obama V. Trump: Strictly Correct And Misleading V. Not Strictly Correct But Fundamentally True – Streetwise Professor

I won’t comment in detail on the substance of today’s latest outbreak of our fevered politics: Trump’s accusation that Obama ordered wiretapping of Trump Tower and the Trump campaign. I will just mention one fact that strongly supports the veracity of Trump’s allegation: namely, the very narrow – and lawyerly – “denials” emanating from the Obama camp.

Obama and his surrogates – notably the slug (or is he a cockroach?) Ben Rhodes – harrumph that Obama could not unilaterally order electronic surveillance. Well, yes, it is the case that Obama did not personally issue the order: the FISA court did so. But even if that is literally correct, it is also true that the FISA court would not unilaterally issue such an order: it would only do so in response to a request from the executive branch. Thus, Obama is clearly implicated even if he did not issue the order. He could have ordered his subordinates to make the request to the court, or could have approved a subordinate’s request to seek an order…

Illegal Immigration Dropped 27% In January – Washington Times

Illegal immigration across the southwest border plummeted in January, compared to December, as the flow of both illegal immigrant families and children traveling alone dried up, according to numbers released by Customs and Border Protection on Monday.

The numbers are still high compared to past years – indeed, it’s the worst January in records dating back to 2012.

But total apprehensions of migrants trying to sneak across the border fell 27 percent on a month-to-month basis, to 31,575. And the number of inadmissible migrants who showed up at the southwest’s ports of entry fell 28 percent, to 10,899.

Apprehensions are deemed an indicator of the overall flow: The more people caught, the more are believed to be getting through.

The flow always decreases in the deep months of the winter, before picking up again in the spring. Last year Border Patrol apprehensions dropped 36 percent from December to January.

“Overall total migration remained at elevated levels, primarily due to family units and unaccompanied children from Central America, Haitian nationals migrating from Brazil, and Cuban nationals,” CBP said in releasing the numbers…

Wacky North Korean Dictator Executes 5 Senior Officials With Anti-Aircraft Guns – Townhall

The 12 Dumbest Ever ‘Bias Incidents’ On America’s College Campuses – Daily Caller

In the last few years, more than 230 American colleges and universities – 143 of them lavishly funded by taxpayers – have launched bias reporting systems encouraging students to report each other for incidents of offensive speech and other kinds of “bias.”

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) published an exhaustive survey of such speech-chilling bias reporting systems earlier this month.

The speech and conduct of some 2.84 million students in the United States are subject to evaluation under bias reporting systems, according to the civil rights group.

The personnel who investigate student speech – usually called some variation of “bias response teams” – frequently includes law enforcement officials as well as school administrators and public relations staffers. Upon a finding of “guilty,” the teams of cops and bureaucrats summon students for hearings. These meetings are often intimidating and quasi-disciplinary. Their function, FIRE suggests, is to enforce a politically correct speech orthodoxy on campuses…

GOP Leaps On Congressional Review Act To Kill Obama Rules – Roll Call

A law that’s been successfully used only once until now is the conduit for a whole lot of action on Capitol Hill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, at a press conference last week, joined a group of Republican leaders who have trumpeted using the CRA to roll back regulations put in place under President Barack Obama. The law allows Congress to repeal certain rules of the previous administration under a fast-track process that requires only a simple majority in the Senate.

Clinton provided a nearly three-and-a-half minute video urging Democrats to fight Trump’s agenda for America.

“We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and optimism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next,” Clinton said.

“Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.”

A close examination of the video shows Clinton’s eye problems – which appeared while she was on the campaign trail – are still evident.

At several points in the video, Hillary’s eyes were not in sync, a condition at least one doctor said can be caused by brain swelling and can lead to double vision…

Despite Democrat Obstruction, U.S. Senate Confirms Mike Pompeo As CIA Director – Breitbart
.

.
On Monday evening, Kansas Republican Mike Pompeo was confirmed as the next director of the C.I.A. by the U.S. Senate, despite days of stalling and obstruction by Senate Democrats.

Pompeo’s confirmation was scheduled for late last week, but Democrat sniping forced the vote to be rescheduled for Monday. Still, despite the deal to reschedule, up to 25 Senators ultimately voted against the Congressman’s confirmation.

The Republican faced several contentious questions during his January 12 hearing but made no major missteps with his answers.

During the hearing, Pompeo said he would observe the proper laws forbidding enhanced interrogation of terror suspects and affirmed that he believes Russia is a threat to the United States…

Trump To Sign Executive Orders Advancing Keystone, Dakota Pipelines – Zero hedge

It is just day two of his presidency, and already Trump is taking a sledgehammer to the Obama legacy: in his latest move reported moments ago by Bloomberg, president Trump intends to sign two executive actions today that would advance construction of the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, putting a spoke, so to say, in the train wheels of Warren Buffett’s train-based oil transportation quasi-monopoly.

The orders would fulfill campaign promises Trump made to approve both pipelines, which face strong opposition from Democrats and environmentalists, but ardent support from the oil industry and the GOP. The White House said Trump plans to sign executive orders at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, but did not provide more details, nor did it respond to the Bloomberg report.

It’s unclear what exactly the orders would do and whether they would fully approve the pipelines or take some other steps in that direction.

If fully built by developer TransCanada Corp., Keystone would run from Alberta, Canada’s oil sands to the Gulf Coast in Texas, bringing heavy oil sands petroleum to refineries. Last month, the Obama administration ordered a comprehensive environmental impact statement to be conducted on the Dakota Access Pipeline before any decision could be made on building its final section below Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Dakota Access has been the subject of internationally recognized protests that have fired up environmentalists and indigenous rights activists…

Candidate For DNC Chair Sally Boynton Brown Says Her Job Will Be ‘To Shut Other White People Down’ – Daily Caller
.

.
Sally Boynton Brown, a white woman running for chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday that if she is chosen to lead the party her job will be to “shut other white people down.”

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum.

Brown, the executive director of the Idaho Democratic Committee, is running for the chair position against six other candidates, including three African-American candidates and one Hispanic, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudice; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Brown bellowed during the forum, which was hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid…

Trump Imposes Freeze On Federal, Non-Military Hiring – The Hill

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order freezing all federal government hiring except for the military, making good on a promise from his campaign.

The new president issued the order alongside two others on Monday morning – one to ban international organizations from using American dollars if they provide or promote abortions and another withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

He signed the orders just before noon in the Oval Office as Vice President Mike Pence, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon and other top aides looked on.

As Priebus presented him with the document, Trump interrupted to make clear that the freeze exempted the military. He made no further comment about the new directive.

The order directs that no vacant positions can be filled, or new positions created, unless an agency head deems the position “necessary to meet national security or public safety responsibilities,” according to text of the order released shortly before 5 p.m.

But this freeze does not apply to Trump’s impending nomination and executive appointments, as he is still filling out his administration.

The freeze will allegedly end once the Office of Management and Budget creates a “long-term plan to reduce the size of the Federal Government’s workforce through attrition.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer shed further light on the plan at a press conference Monday, claiming that it “counters the dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years.”…

Wisconsin Governor Proposes Welfare Reform Plan Requiring Recipients To Work Part-Time Or Get Job Training – News Max

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday proposed an aggressive welfare reform plan that will require people receiving benefits to be employed at least 80 hours per month or to be enrolled in job training programs, The Hill reports.

“We believe our public assistance programs should ask able-bodied adults to take steps toward self-sufficiency through work, while also providing comprehensive tools to help them get and keep a job,” Walker said Monday.

Walker’s “Wisconsin Works for Everyone” plan would impose requirements on able-bodied adults with school-age children who receive state food assistance and people who receive state housing assistance. The ones who do not meet work requirements would have their benefits cut, Walker said…

Treasonous Obama Quietly Sent $221M To Palestinian Authority Hours Before Leaving Office – Business Insider

Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority.

GOP members of Congress had been holding up the money.

A State Department official and several congressional aides say the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president.

More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations.

At least two GOP lawmakers had placed holds on the Palestinian funds. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding.

The official and the aides weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity…

Trump To CEOs: I’ll Wipe Out 75 Percent Of Regulations, Fast-Track U.S. Factories – Chicago Tribune

In the opening hours of his first formal day in the White House on Monday, President Trump welcomed leaders from several of the country’s largest corporations and promised to wipe out at least 75 percent of government regulations that hinder their businesses, fast-track their plans to open factories and cut taxes “massively.”

And he again threatened to impose a “substantial border tax” on companies that move production out of the country.

“We’re going to be cutting regulation massively,” Trump told a large group of business chief executives over breakfast, which was briefly open to the news media. “Now, we’re going to have regulation, and it’ll be just as strong and just as good and just as protective of the people as the regulation we have right now…

Sweden: Muslim Migrants Gang-Rape Woman, Broadcast It Live On Facebook – Jihad Watch

The Swedish publication NyheterIdag says that the attackers were “nysvenskar,” that is, “new Swedes,” which is the establishment media euphemism for Muslim migrants.

And so here we go again. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

“Horror as gang rapes woman in Sweden and broadcasts it on FACEBOOK LIVE,” by Siobhan McFadyen, Express, January 23, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A WOMAN was gang raped in Sweden by a group of men who broadcast the horrific attack on Facebook live, it has been claimed.

Disgusted witnesses who saw the footage said the men only stopped their horrendous attack when police stormed the flat and stopped the broadcast.

Swedish officers have arrested three men in connection with the attack, after a member of the public alerted police to the incident just before 8.30am this morning.

The rape is said to have taken place in an apartment in the city of Uppsala this morning…

Trump Signs Executive Order Killing Obama’s Legacy Trade Deal – Daily Caller
.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday withdrawing from the legacy trade agreement former President Barack Obama worked on for years.

Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), fulfilling a campaign promise. The withdrawal was among the first orders of the day.

The Trump administration intends to pursue “trade deals working for all Americans.” According to the updated White House website, “this strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers.”

On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly criticized the TPP.

Last summer, Trump described the 12-nation free-trade agreement as “another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country, just a continuing rape of our country.”…

Passengers Cheer As Leftist Hag Gets Thrown Off Of Plane For Harassing Trump Supporter – American Mirror

An elderly woman demanded a Donald Trump supporter seated next to her be moved, but she quickly found out that’s not how the world works.

Scott Koteskey, in a window seat, posted video on Saturday showing a woman in the middle seat complaining about him to airline personnel.

According to Koteskey:

Just had the craziest experience ever on an airplane:

I’m boarding my flight from Baltimore to Seattle and approach my seat. I had an upgraded seat that I paid a little extra for because of the long 6 hour flight. As I approach my row I smile and motion to the husband and wife sitting in the aisle and middle seat that Imy seat was next to the window. I put my backpack in the overhead and the wife with a very stern voice says to me:

“Did you come here to cheer or to protest?”

“I came here to celebrate democracy ma’am”

…I knew this was going to be a long flight at this point. She then proceeded with: (somewhat paraphrased as my memory allows)

Her: “You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes! You should be ashamed!”

Me: ‘Well we’re all entitled to our opinions here ma’am.”

Her: “And I’m entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap! I’m going to throw up right in your lap! You make me sick! Don’t talk to me! Don’t look at me! Don’t you dare even put your arm on that rest. You disgust me! You should be ashamed of yourself! You put a maniac’s finger on the button” (assuming she’s means nukes). You are a bigot. You should get off this plane!”…

Shocking Security Flaws Allow Anyone To Get To UK On Eurostar Without A Passport – Daily Mail
.

.
Terrorists and criminals can travel to Britain on the Eurostar without any form of identification, a Daily Mail investigation reveals.

The extraordinary flaw in our border security means anyone can arrive in the heart of London without a passport for as little as £2.60 – the price of a cup of coffee.

The shocking loophole takes advantage of the open-borders Schengen Agreement that allows people to travel across Europe without showing a passport.

Britain is not part of the agreement and travellers are expected to show passports when they board the Eurostar to come here.

But the loophole allows passengers to board the Eurostar without identification in Brussels with a ticket to the French city of Lille – and to simply remain on the train when it heads to London…

Man Who Stole 1.6M In Gold From NYC Armored Truck Arrested In Ecuador; Was Previously Deported 4 Times – Fox News

The man police say snatched $1.6 million worth of gold flakes from an armored truck in New York City in September was arrested Thursday in Ecuador, The Daily News reported.

The report said Julio Nivelo, 53, was deported four times to Ecuador, but managed to make his way back to the U.S. Federal agents from Homeland Security assisted in his capture.

The report said authorities believe Nivelo made his way from New York to Florida and then to California. It is believed he made his way to Ecuador from California.

He was described in the report as a career criminal and police sources told the paper he made similar grabs ranging from jewelry in a courier truck and camera equipment.

Still, the video of the gold flakes swipe was remarkably brazen to many.

The footage is said to show the man capitalizing on a 20-second window left open by the guards, one of whom was making a pickup while the other was walking to the front seat.

The theft unfolded on West 48th Street in the Diamond District on Sept. 29 – in broad daylight – as tourists and locals were walking in and out of the countless jewelry stores that line the block.

A surveillance camera captured the opportune heist on tape and showed the man making off with the 86-pound bucket. Throughout his hour-long escape, he appears to struggle with the gold flakes – stopping to set them down several times and even attempting to carry them on his shoulder at one point, according to NBC.

There is no immediate word as to where the gold flakes are…

Majority Of 230 Protesters Busted On Inauguration Day To Be Charged With Felony Rioting, Face 10-Year Prison Sentences – Daily Mail

Most of the 230 rioters arrested after violent protests erupted in Washington D.C. following Donald Trump’s inauguration will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said on Saturday.

The charge carries a punishment of up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.

Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police.

Many of those arrested are due to appear in court on Saturday, according to WUSA 9.

Heated clashes broke out in McPherson Square and along K Street as hundreds of riot police fired tear gas and drew their nightsticks to contain the masked mob.

As the rioting unfolded, Trump and his family were arriving at a review stand at the White House to see the end of the inaugural parade.

Militant anti-Trump protesters gave a foretaste of what could follow during the violent outbreaks, which has so far seen 217 people arrested and at least six police officers injured.

Just before the parade started, clashes broke out between more than 400 stone-throwing protesters and riot police in McPherson Square – just blocks from the parade in honor of newly sworn-in president.

As Trump’s motorcade wound its way up Pennsylvania Avenue in the parade to the White House, protesters also descended on Franklin Square Park where they graffitied a stretch limo before setting the vehicle ablaze right outside the Washington Post building….
