Ted Cruz: Democrats Filibustered Legislation That Would Have Resulted In Texas Church Shooter Being In Prison – Breitbart
.

.
On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized Democrats for filibustering the Grassley-Cruz legislation in 2013 that “would have resulted in this shooter being in federal prison instead of murdering those innocents in that Texas church.”

Cruz said, “[T]his should have been stopped beforehand. Under federal law, it was illegal for this individual to purchase a firearm. He had a conviction for a crime that’s punishable by more than a year in prison, and he had a conviction for multiple domestic violence crimes. Both of those, it’s already ineligible. But, several things happened: Number one, the air force – the Obama administration didn’t report those convictions to the [NICS] database. That’s an endemic problem…

Breaking: Woman Wins Women’s Race – Washington Free Beacon

The front page of the New York Times Monday morning was shocking. A woman won the New York City marathon! Impossible!

The Times special marathon section certainly gave that impression, too.

Google “who won the New York City marathon?” and Shalane Flanagan’s name comes up first. And don’t get me wrong: Her time of 2 hours 26 minutes 53 seconds was impressive. And she was the first American to win the women’s race in 40 years. Not bad.

But a woman did not finish first in the NYC marathon. Flanagan’s time was 16 minutes slower than the winner of the New York City marathon men’s race, Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor of Kenya.

Kamworor’s win is buried by the Times, relegated to page 3 of the special section. The Times, and the rest of the media, neglects to note that five American men beat their self-declared winner Flanagan.

But never mind, the headlines all tell the same story: A woman won the NYC marathon!…

Pennsylvania Man Kills Woman After Failed Marriage Proposal – KYW

A 34-year-old Berks County man is accused of killing a 19-year-old girl earlier this week after she told him “no” when he asked her to marry him.

Christopher Ryan Tucker, 34, of Albany Township, allegedly confessed to the crime when he was arrested in Illinois Wednesday night.

Authorities say Tucker fled Pennsylvania after committing the murder earlier this week. His car broke down in Illinois and authorities say he then attempted to steal a motorized combine from a farm. The farmer was on the property and called authorities.

After being arrested in Illinois, Tucker was reportedly the one who alerted authorities there had been a heinous crime committed at his home in Albany Township, Pennsylvania…

First Comey Memo Concluded Hillary Was “Grossly Negligent,” Punishable By Jail – Zero Hedge

According to a new report from The Hill, early drafts of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Hillary Clinton’s email case accused the former Secretary of State of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified information as opposed to the “extremely careless” phrase that made its way into the final statement.

As The Hill further points out, the change in language is significant since federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines whereas “extreme carelessness” has no such legal definition and/or ramifications.

An early draft of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement closing out the Hillary Clinton email case accused the former Secretary of State of having been ‘grossly negligent” in handling classified information, new memos to Congress show.

The tough language was changed to the much softer accusation that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information when Comey announced in July 2016 there would be no charges against her…

Black Guy Painted His Own Car With Racist Graffiti At Kansas State University – The Sentinel

A black man painted racist graffiti on his own car parked near Kansas State University, police determined.

Dauntarius Williams, 21, told investigators he painted racial slurs on his own car and reported it to police, but officials will not charge him for filing a false police report. In a press release, Williams said he regrets his actions, calling the graffiti a “Halloween prank that got out of hand.”

“I wish I could go back to that night but I can’t,” the release reads. “I just want to apologize from the bottom of my heart for the pain and news I have brought you all.”

Students on campus hosted a meeting to talk about racism on campus after Williams called newspapers saying his car had been painted with racist slurs while parked near campus. K-State officials told media Williams wasn’t a student, a response which garnered its own backlash, as some in the K-State community said school officials were blaming the victim.

After the report, the president of the Black Student Union told the Associated Press that minority students generally do not feel safe on campus…

ISIS Loses Last Bastion Of Caliphate In Syria – Breitbart

The end of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) caliphate that once expanded across vast swathes of two countries is within reach now that the jihadists lost the last-remaining city under their control in Syria and its final stronghold in Iraq along the border.

“Frankly the tempo of our operations is going to reduce as Daesh [ISIS] are beaten in Iraq and in Syria,” conceded Air Commander Johnny Stringer in charge of Britain’s contribution to U.S.-led air coalition against the Islamic State, reports the Telegraph.

ISIS’s so-called caliphate had “all but disappeared,” declared the commander. However, he indicated that “it was now likely to morph into an insurgent organization.”

On Friday, Iraqi military forces, backed by U.S.-led coalition air power and Iran-allied Shiite militias, led the offensive to defeat ISIS in al-Qaim..

Four Viral Claims Spread By Journalists On Twitter In The Last Week Alone That Are False – Glenn Greenwald

There is ample talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus, can never be adequately corrected.

The design of Twitter, where many political journalists spend their time, is in large part responsible for this damage. Its space constraints mean that tweeted headlines or tiny summaries of reporting are often assumed to be true with no critical analysis of their accuracy and are easily spread.

Claims from journalists that people want to believe are shared like wildfire, while less popular subsequent corrections or nuanced debunking are easily ignored. Whatever one’s views are on the actual impact of Twitter Russian bots, surely the propensity of journalistic falsehoods to spread far and wide is at least as significant…

Legendary Sportscaster Vin Scully Says He’ll Never Watch Another NFL Game Over Anthem Protests – Daily Caller

Legendary baseball announcer Vin Scully is boycotting the NFL over national anthem protests.

“I will never watch another NFL game,” the former Dodgers announcer told the audience while speaking at an event in Pasadena about Roger Goodell and the NFL, according to TMZ Sports.

This is not surprising at all. Scully is known as one of the most famous announcers sports history, and he’s never really held back when it comes to politics. He famously slammed socialism during a live broadcast. I’d be more surprised if he did indeed agree with the national anthem protests.

His comments also represent the way many Americans feel. Lots of people have been turned off to the NFL ever since players kneeling and refusing to stand during the national anthem became a thing in the league.

It’s probably not a stretch to say he speaks for lots of people in this country…

The gunman who opened fire inside a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, has been identified as Devin Kelly, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by “targeting white conservative churches” and causing anarchy in the United States.

Governor LePage Vetoes Bill To Regulate Marijuana Sales In Maine – Bangor Daily News

Gov. Paul LePage said Friday that he has vetoed a bill to tax and regulate recreational marijuana, which the Legislature sent him Oct. 23 with fragile support.

LD 1650 was written by a special legislative committee. LePage said the bill conflicts with federal law, fails to account adequately for Maine’s existing medical marijuana industry and sets “unrealistic timelines.”

“There have been serious negative effects of legalization in other states – effects that should not be repeated in Maine,” LePage wrote in his veto letter, adding that “we need assurances that a change in policy or administration at the federal level will not nullify” public and private investments in the industry.

He also said the recreational marijuana bill fails to align with existing medical marijuana law, particularly because sales tax on medical pot would be lower.

“The two programs must be considered together,” wrote LePage…

Texas Police Can Now Be Imprisoned For Not Honoring ICE Detainer Requests – Law Newz

A federal appeals court has allowed some aspects of Texas’s anti-Sanctuary City bill SB4 to go forward.

One of the more controversial provisions of SB4 is language which directs all law enforcement agents and officials in the state to “comply with, honor, and fulfill,” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) detainer requests. It reads, in relevant part:

Art. 2.251. DUTIES RELATED TO IMMIGRATION DETAINER REQUESTS. (a) A law enforcement agency that has custody of a person subject to an immigration detainer request issued by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement shall: (1) comply with, honor, and fulfill any request made in the detainer request provided by the federal government; and (2) inform the person that the person is being held pursuant to an immigration detainer request issued by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The above-quoted provision is now being allowed to take effect pending further litigation. Thus, any police officers, chiefs or sheriffs who violate that provision – and refuse ICE detainer requests – will now be subject to criminal penalties…

Detroit Is Once Again The Most Violent City In America, FBI Says – Monroe News

Uber Banned In London After Sexual Assaults By Migrants Skyrocket – InfoWars

Uber has been banned in London partly in response to skyrocketing rapes by predominantly migrant drivers which the company did not report to police.

According to Transport for London, Uber’s license will not be renewed beyond September 30, with the first reason listed being the company’s “approach to reporting serious criminal offenses.”

This includes Uber’s failure to report rising numbers of rapes and sexual assaults by its own drivers.

Latest figures show that Uber drivers are now responsible for one sex attack in London every week, with sexual assaults by Uber drivers skyrocketing by 50 per cent in just a single year.

This is undoubtedly connected to the fact that many of the drivers are from Muslim backgrounds, where “immodest” women are seen as easy prey. Many of the young women who hire Uber taxis late at night are drunk and in some cases scantily dressed.

Many Uber drivers are newly arrived migrants or “refugees” who don’t have to undergo the intensive training that traditional cabbies go through…

Education Secretary DeVos Rescinds Obama’s Kangaroo Court Edict – The Hill

The agency withdrew a 2011 “Dear Colleague” letter that required schools to adopt a minimal standard of proof – the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard – when disciplining students and replaced a 2014 question-and-answer document on how schools should investigate and adjudicate cases of sexual misconduct.

A 32-year-old undocumented immigrant was charged with sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl after her father found the stranger in bed with her in the middle of the night, police say.

Edgar Mendoza, a citizen of Guatemala, allegedly broke into a home early Tuesday morning on Bayard Street in the Chambersburg section of Trenton, New Jersey, The Trentonian reported.

Police say in the affidavit that the child’s father noticed that a light had been turned off upstairs and went to investigate.

Mendoza leaped up and then jumped from a second-floor window and fled on foot into the neighborhood, police say.

Police officers who responded to a 1.30am 911 call from the father searched the area and arrested Mendoza a short time later…

Oregon Dems Push Phony Precedent To Block Ninth Circuit Court Nominee – Washington Free Beacon

Oregon’s two Democratic senators are blocking one of President Trump’s judicial nominees with claims that a “longstanding” state tradition mandating that nominees be chosen from their “judicial selection committee” was violated, but the tradition they cite has never applied to picks for the U.S. Circuit Court, according to records viewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley alerted the White House that they would be blocking the nomination of Oregon native Ryan Bounds for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Bounds is currently serving as assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon.

Today, Dr. Ben Carson praised Judge Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s election, reminding everyone to vote.

“Judge Moore is a fine man of proven character and integrity, who I have come to respect over the years. I was delighted to hear he is running for the US Senate.

Couple Caught On CCTV Having Sex In Domino’s Pizza Shop Face Prison Time – Daily Mirror

A couple who had sex in a Domino’s pizza delivery shop are facing prison after they were caught on CCTV committing “lewd and obscene” acts. Daniella Hirst, 28 and Craig Smith, 31, were waiting for their stuffed crust pizza when they let their “exuberant spirits get the better of them”, a court heard.

An X-rated 18-minute clip shows Hirst performing a sex act on Smith up against the counter while several members of staff prepare food. At around half an hour long, the whole court hearing today was only around 12 minutes longer than the footage itself.

The footage, which was shown in court, first shows Hirst straddling a wet-floor sign before she is thrown in a sex position midair by Smith. She then slides down Smith’s trousers before appearing to perform a sex act – first standing and then crouching down on her knees.

The footage was shown at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court, where the pair faced charges of outraging public decency. Hirst, 29, pleaded guilty to the offence today and Smith, 31, was found guilty in his absence after a trial lasting barely 30 minutes…

Graham-Cassidy Block-Grant Bill Sets Off Clashes In Senate As Obamacare Repeal Clock Ticks – Washington Times

Senators in both parties reignited the Obamacare repeal wars Monday, as Republicans claimed momentum for a last-chance repeal bill and Democrats told budget analysts to vet the legislation carefully, hoping to prolong a thorny debate before an end-of-month deadline.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, said the block grant proposal by Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, and Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican, was the “best path forward to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

“Congress has 12 days to say ‘yes’ to Graham-Cassidy. It’s time for them to get the job done,” he said in a prepared statement.

It was a critical endorsement for Senate sponsors trying to win over Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican whose rejection of a limited repeal bill in July stalled the party’s effort on health care.

A senior Israeli source told the Al-Jadida newspaper that no understanding was reached between the Israelis and the Russians. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did, however, make it clear to Putin that its concerns must be met or Israel will be forced to act.

The warnings occurred in a meeting between Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin last week. The prime minister, accompanied by Mossad head Yossi Cohen, the newly appointed head of the National Security Council, Meir Ben-Shabbat, and Likud minister Ze’ev Elkin who served as his translator, flew to Sochi on the Black Sea for the meeting, returning to Israel shortly after it ended…

South Korea Drops Bombs Near Border After Aggressive North Korean Missile Test – Daily Caller
.

.
South Korea dropped bombs near its border Tuesday in response to North Korea’s latest provocation.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile – believed by some to be the Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile first tested in May – over Japan early Tuesday morning, raising alarms in the island nation.

In the wake of this aggressive new test, South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered a show of “overwhelming force” against North Korea, according to Yonhap News Agency. Shortly thereafter, the South Korean Air Force staged a live-fire drill in which it practiced bombing the North Korean leadership out of existence.

Four F-15K fighters dropped eight MK 84 bombs – 2,000-pound bombs designed to penetrate hardened targets – on a mock target at the Taebaek Pilsung Firing Range in Gangwon Province…

Here is his story:

“They [were] calling Conservatives “Fascists” and “Nazis”, claiming that they support hate speech. I tried to act as a guard for some people. I got hit in the face with a shield, pushed down onto the concrete, pepper sprayed, and some dude spray painted my shirt as I walked away.”

Why Did Houston’s Mayor Tell Residents Not To Evacuate? – Red State
.

.
Right now, as I write this, Houston, TX, is in the middle of a once-a-century catastrophe. Nearly three feet of rain have fallen in a couple of days, and there is no end in site. Houston and its suburbs could easily get four-and-a-half-feet of rain before it is all over.

Right now, a major effort is underway to try to evacuate tens of thousands of Houstonians who are stranded in areas that are flooded. Many are on the roofs of their houses awaiting rescue. The effort is being carried out by first responders from out-of-state as well as concerned Texans.

Did this have to happen?

Two days ago Texas Governor Greg Abbott held a press conference. It was clear at that time that Harvey was an immense storm and that, at least according to that pustulent bag of leftwing flatulence Neil DeGrasse Tyson, was guaran-f***ing-teed to hit the Texas coast…

Europe’s Asylum Disgrace – Bruce Bawer

Three years ago, Aideen Strandsson, an Iranian actress who had converted from Islam to Christianity applied for asylum in Sweden on the grounds that apostasy is a capital offense in her home country. (Don’t ask me why her name sounds Swedish rather than Iranian.)

This summer, Swedish authorities turned her down. They were fully prepared to send her back to Iran – and to her death – when the Hungarian government stepped in and agreed to take her. It is just one individual’s story, but it illuminates the dramatic difference between Western and Eastern Europe when it comes to matters that will, before too long, decide the future of the continent.

Sweden, of course, is one of those Western European countries that have eagerly granted asylum to armies of Muslims who pose as refugees from persecution but who are, in fact, economic migrants, eager to climb onto the welfare-state gravy train. Hungary, meanwhile, is one of those Eastern European countries that refuse to take in Muslims but are willing to accept Christians…

Philadelphia Teacher Charged With Making Terroristic Threats To Cop At City Statue Protest – College Fix

A teacher employed by the Philadelphia public schools has been charged with terroristic threats and harassment after a confrontation with police during a protest at the statue of former mayor Frank Rizzo back on August 16.

He will not be teaching pending the results of the investigation.

In a video of the incident posted to Twitter, Sheerin can be heard approximately halfway through the recording berating an officer – calling him a “gutless bitch,” “f***ing coward” and “punk-ass motherf***er,” and telling him “you’re f***ing done.”…

Catholic School Removes Catholic Statues And Teachings To Be More ‘Inclusive’ – Daily Caller

A Catholic school in California has angered several parents by stripping its campus and curriculum of Catholic statues and teachings, ostensibly to be more inclusive.

School leadership maintained that the school was still Catholic, but parents pointed out that the removal of the statues and icons was only the latest in a series of moves that made the school less Catholic.

American Bar Association Wants To Let Illegal Aliens Practice Law – Law Newz

On Monday, The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution demanding that Congress let undocumented immigrants practice law. The bar suggests that lawmakers should add this block of text to 8 U.S.C. 5 § 1621(d):

A state court vested with exclusive authority to regulate admission to the bar may, by rule, order, or other affirmative act, permit an undocumented alien seeking legal status to obtain a professional license to practice law in that jurisdiction.

This wouldn’t require state courts to license undocumented lawyers, but it would make it clear that the federal government won’t get in the way.

It will be a huge surprise if this move succeeds under the current administration. Republicans, who have a reputation for pushing stricter immigration laws than Democrats, maintain a (slight) majority in Congress. And then there’s the president. Donald Trump‘s policies don’t tend to favor the undocumented. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have boasted that arrest numbers for both criminal and non-criminal immigrants recently skyrocketed thanks to new executive orders…

Corrupt Koskinen’s IRS Rehires 213 Employees Ousted For Falsifying Documents, Avoiding Taxes, Other Offenses – Daily Signal

The Internal Revenue Service rehired 213 employees who ducked taxes, falsified documents, were convicted of theft, or made unauthorized use of taxpayer data, an inspector general’s report says.

The Office of Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which also first discovered the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups in 2013, examined the agency’s hiring from January 2015 through March 2016.

For these 15 months, the IRS official in charge was Commissioner John Koskinen, an appointee of President Barack Obama.

House Republicans for months sought to impeach Koskinen for obstructing a congressional probe into the agency’s targeting of the applications for tax-exempt status made by nonprofit tea party and conservative groups.

“Let’s start with the fact this whole thing was kicked off because of an attempt to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee,” D’Souza told WND. “Here’s the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia.

Reebok Mocks Trump’s Compliments Of Macron’s Wife – The Hill

The sports brand Reebok is mocking President Trump’s compliments of French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife that were made during Trump’s visit to France last week.

The sports apparel company posted a graphic to their Twitter account on Friday.

In a chart, labeled “when is it appropriate to say, ‘You’re in such good shape…beautiful,’” several scenarios are listed, including “Are you a world leader greeting the spouse of a head of state?” and “Are you in an elevator with a woman?” In response, the company advises: “No.”

“Did you just find a forgotten action figure from your youth, unscathed after decades, in your parents’ basement?” is the only scenario on the chart that is labeled as appropriate for Trump’s quote.

Video posted to Macron’s Facebook page Thursday caught Trump complimenting France’s first lady Brigitte Macron as the two world leaders and their wives greeted each other following a tour…

Facebook: Muslim’s Rape Threat Against Ex-Muslim Doesn’t Violate “Community Standards” – Washington Standard
.

Maryam Namazie is a Marxist, which means that her opposition to Islam is just a matter of wanting to exchange one form of violent authoritarianism for another. She is a vicious Jew-hater who has spread “Palestinian” jihad propaganda.

Namazie is also a liar, as she claims here that Pamela Geller and I have accused her of practicing taqiyya, and she has published an entire report defaming and libeling us in numerous ways.

None of this, of course, means that she should be raped, or that rape threats against her should go unnoticed. Facebook’s refusal to act on this is yet another example of its determination to implement Sharia blasphemy norms and silence all criticism of Islam, as Facebook’s Vice President recently assured Pakistani authorities that it would do…

Woman Accused Of Lying About Rape Claims Psychiatric Illness – Fox News

A former university student accused of lying about being raped by two university football players is seeking to have the charges against her dismissed.

The Connecticut Post reports former Sacred Heart University student Nikki Yovino filed an application in court Friday saying she’s suffering from a psychiatric disability.

The 19-year-old South Setauket, New York, native will undergo a psychological evaluation. A judge will decide whether she qualifies for a pretrial diversionary program. If she qualifies and completes that program she could have the charges dismissed.

Prosecutors say they’ll contest Yovino’s request. They previously offered her a plea deal with a two-year prison sentence.

Yovino accused two Sacred Heart football players of sexually assaulting her during an October party. The players said the sex was consensual. Police say Yovino later admitted making up the allegations…

Teen Who Blasted ‘Fuck Tha Police’ At Cop’s Funeral Booted From Apartment – New York Post

A cop-hating Bronx teen has been kicked out of his apartment for repeatedly blasting the rap song “Fuck Tha Police” from the window as thousands of NYPD cops gathered to mourn a slain colleague, the building’s superintendent said Friday.

Super Danny Morales said he ordered a tenant to get rid of Julien Rodriguez, 16, and his older sister, who had been staying in the tenant’s third-floor pad.

“I called him and told him he needs to take care of this right away,” Morales said.

“I told him it’s disrespectful and they can’t be doing this. The police lost a family member. We all need to come together and respect that.”

Morales said he was especially offended because his nephew, Saul Quiles-Morales, is a cop assigned to the nearby 40th Precinct.

“I wouldn’t want to see him lying in a box also. We need to respect the police,” he added.

The tenant, who identified himself only as “Jesus,” insisted the incident wasn’t his fault and called Rodriguez and his sister “lowlifes.”…

The Women’s March, which first came on the scene the day after Trump’s inauguration, organized the protest yesterday. They demanded the protection of “civil rights of Black gun owners,” something the NRA defends.

Advisors To Socialist Pope Francis Bash American Christians In Bigoted Screed – Breitbart

In a peculiar, rambling essay, papal adviser Father Antonio Spadaro SJ has caricatured white southern evangelicals as well as conservative American Catholics as ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics anxiously awaiting the apocalypse.

It is “these religious groups that are composed mainly of whites from the deep American South” that push conflicts and justify belligerence, while favoring the Old Testament “rather than be guided by the incisive look, full of love, of Jesus in the Gospels.”

The article appeared in both Italian and English in the Vatican-vetted journal La Civiltà Cattolica, of which Father Spadaro is editor-in-chief. In it, the Jesuit priest says that U.S. Evangelicals and Catholics have engaged in “an ecumenism of conflict” that seeks to advance “a theocratic type of state.”

Spadaro, a friend and counselor of Pope Francis, was assisted in drafting the essay by an Argentinian Presbyterian minister, Marcelo Figueroa, an old friend of the Pope’s who was hand-picked by the pontiff as editor-in-chief of the Argentinean edition of the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano…

Leftist Seattle Councilman Objects To Hosing Excrement-Covered Sidewalks Because It’s ‘Racist’ – Heatstreet

Nevada Declares State Of Emergency Over Legal Marijuana Shortage – Circa

Nevada has declared a state of emergency over a shortage of legal marijuana.

Leftist Judge Forces Prison To Provide Hormone Therapy To “Transgender” Dude Named Sparkles Wilson – Daily Caller

A federal judge has ordered officials at a taxpayer-funded county prison in Pennsylvania to provide – and foot the cost for – hormone therapy treatment for transgender inmate Steven Fritz, a man who longs to become a woman and who prefers to go by the name Sparkles Wilson.

Judge Robert D. Mariani issued the order late Friday, reports The Scranton Times-Tribune.

Mariani’s ruling comes after Fritz had filed a $1 million-plus lawsuit alleging that he will suffer physical harm and mental trauma if he does not continue receiving regular estrogen infusions.

A prison doctor, Edward Zaloga, had challenged the judge’s order because, Zalonga said, side effects of the hormone treatments could harm Fritz.

However, Judge Mariani, an Obama appointee, overruled the doctor’s concerns. In his emergency order, Mariani held that Zalonga had presented insufficient evidence to support the claim that Fritz might be harmed…

Arkansas had resisted, arguing that the birth certificate was a record of parentage for the child, rather than a document about the marriage.

The demand – among 12 other ultimata issued by the Gulf States – is due to Qatar’s support of terrorism and Al Jazeera’s role in that project.

Epic: Homeowners’ Response To Government Request For Access To Property Goes Viral – I Have The Truth

One couple’s tongue-in-cheek reply to a state agency’s request for access to their property has gone viral across social media.

Larry and Amanda Anderson received the formal request from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife last month. The reason given by the state for requesting access to “survey the creek on your property” was to look for the “foothill yellow-legged frog.”

According to the letter, ODFW is concerned with declining numbers of the frog’s population.

After considering the request, late last week the Andersons sent a detailed reply to the state agency.

The letter does grant permission for the state to enter the property and survey the creek. However, it also included a litany of requirements needed to be completed (permits, vehicle inspections, stamps, etc.) before any representative would be allowed on the property.

Additionally, once the permits, stamps and inspections had been satisfied, the letter went on to list the only kind of “survey gear” allowed to be used in capturing the frogs, mandating the nets be “made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle.”…

The fact is that almost the entirety of what one reads in the paper or on the web is speculation. The writer isn’t telling you what happened, he is offering an interpretation of what happened, or offering a projection of the future…

Neil Gorsuch’s First SCOTUS Dissent Has Conservatives Cheering – Bizpac Review

When newly-minted Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch joined originalist stalwart Clarence Thomas in a 7-2 dissent that reads like something the founders would have written, any conservatives who might have been concerned about Gorsuch somehow being another David Souter probably stopped worrying.

Indeed, Gorsuch’s first dissent, penned almost two weeks after drafting his first majority opinion, offers fascinating insight into the new justice’s thought processes (hint: It’s a lot more Scalia than Souter).

The case, Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board, dealt with the process behind the appeal of a federal census worker’s employment dispute.

The majority opinion overturned the D.C. Circuit Court’s ruling, which was against the petitioner. But Gorsuch and Thomas actually believe it’s not the court’s job to make laws. What a concept!…

Bernie Sanders And Wife Under FBI Investigation For Bank Fraud – Zero Hedge

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane have lawyer’d up amid an FBI investigation into a loan obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president.

As we noted just over a year ago, Burlington College, a small Vermont private school once led by the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, said Monday it will close later this month, citing “the crushing weight” of debt incurred during the presidency of Jane Sanders who was in charge of the college until 2011.

According to WaPo, the college which enrolled 224 students as of fall 2014, said it faced financial troubles connected to its 2010 purchase of 32 acres of lakefront property from the Archdiocese of Burlington, according to the Burlington Free Press…

German Police Raid Homes Of 36 People Accused Of ‘Hateful’ Social Media Posts – WorldNetDaily

German police recently raided the homes of 36 people accused of writing “hateful” posts on social media, with most of the raids targeting right-wing individuals.

Thirty-three of the raids concerned “politically motivated right-wing incitement,” while only two raids targeted people accused of left-wing extremist content. One of the raids targeted someone accused of making threats based on sexual orientation, according to the New York Times.

“Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence and violence either on the street or on the internet,” said Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office.

According to German law, social media users face up to five years in prison for “inciting racial hatred,” even if no physical violence is committed.

“Meanwhile, Islamists mow down people with cars and trucks at Christmas markets in Germany,” said Paul Nehlen, who recently announced he will challenge House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district primary in 2018…

Barclays Bank, Four Former Top Executives Charged With Fraud Over Fundraising With Qatari Investors – Financial Gazette

Barclays and four former senior executives are facing criminal charges relating to investments sought from Qatar in 2008. The emergency funds raised by Barclays at the height of the financial crisis allowed it to avoid a government bailout when its rivals – Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland – took state rescue packages.

After a five-year investigation, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has announced Barclays has been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit fraud and the provision of unlawful financial assistance.

The charges centre on the bank’s move to raise cash from Qatari investors Qatar Holding and Challenger Universal in June and October 2008. They also relate to a $3bn (£2.4bn) loan made available to the State of Qatar in November of that year.

The bank’s former chief executive John Varley and another senior executive Roger Jenkins have been with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation in relation to a first round of investment in June 2008…

House Conservatives Send Senate List Of ‘Must Haves’ For Healthcare Bill – Washington Examiner

A House conservative group formerly chaired by Vice President Mike Pence plans to issue their healthcare demands to Republican senators amid growing reports that the bill has moved further to the left.

The 151-member Republican Study Committee is sending a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., detailing what the group’s members want to see in a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare, raising new questions about whether Republicans will be able to come together to pass the legislation.

Republican Study Committee members say in the draft letter they would like to see many conservative policies in the House-passed American Health Care Act preserved in whatever Obamacare bill emerges from the Senate.

This includes phasing out Medicaid expansion beginning in 2020. They also want to keep the repeal of all taxes under Obamacare, an area where Republicans broadly agree but raises questions about how to fund the healthcare law…

Mostly Useless GOP Considers Canceling August Recess To Salvage Agenda – The Hill

Alarmed by the stalemate on healthcare reform, lack of progress on tax reform and appropriations bills that are far behind schedule, Republican lawmakers across Congress are increasingly willing to consider canceling the month-long August recess.

Senate Republican negotiators reported that they are not close to a deal on healthcare reform and that scheduling a vote by July 4, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has pushed, is likely unrealistic.

That impasse has held up work on a budget resolution, which is necessary to move tax reform and the annual appropriations bills.

Once Republicans vote on a budget resolution for 2018, it will wipe out the special vehicle they plan to use to pass healthcare reform with a simple majority vote – a vehicle that was set up by the budget resolution for 2017.

Lawmakers calculate there are only 45 legislative days until the end of the fiscal year, on Sept. 30…

Or maybe you were intrigued by an unusual draft item (“Hmm, a blueberry shandy, how delightful”) but after ordering a pint, discovered it tasted like cough syrup. Or perhaps your bartender does one of those “set the pint glass under the tap and let it fill/overflow before handing it to you with beer and foam dripping down the side without wiping it off” maneuvers.

Russia Surrounded: NATO Starts War Games As Troops Swoop On Putin’s Enclave – Daily Express

Russia was surrounded on all sides by NATO forces yesterday as America and Britain kicked off a summer of war games in Kaliningrad, amid World War III fears.

President Vladimir Putin’s Baltic fleet is based in the region and it was reported that the joint UK/US show of strength angered him.

Mr Putin’s forces in the region include short range ballistic missiles with a 300-mile reach.

However, in a show of strength, the US deployed a historic amount of its nuclear bombers – including B-52, B1 and the B-2 stealth aircrafts.

Lieutenant General Richard Clark, a US airforce commander said America wanted to show that it was “ready to deter conflict.”

After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime – Legal Insurrection

Although Seattle’s gun tax was supposed to bring in $300,000 to $500,000, it’s brought in less than $200,000. The money was supposed to be used to “study” gun violence and to somehow lower the cost to taxpayers for gun violence.

It didn’t turn out that way, and Seattle ended up forking out taxpayer money from the general fund for the “study.” Meanwhile, small business owners have shuttered their Seattle gun shops, causing employees to lose their jobs. Furthermore, Seattle police report that gun violence has sharply increased.

The tax took effect in January of 2016, and includes a $25 tax on each gun purchase and up to 5 cents per round of ammunition.

The Seattle Times reported last April:

England Is Drunk On PC Kool-Aid – Renee Garfinkel

Britain has lost its way, lost its moral compass… and lost its mind.

In the midst of a season of repeated and deadly terror attacks, the British decided to permit Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy and international terrorist organization, to march in a parade through London on Sunday.

The parade marked Al Quds Day, an occasion invented by the late Ayatollah Khomeini to call for Israel to be destroyed. In his words, “any freedom lover and justice seeker in the world must do its best for the annihilation of the Zionist regime.”

Make no mistake, there is nothing pro-Palestinian or pro-Arab about Hezbollah. It is heavily engaged in the ongoing killing of Arab citizens of Syria in support of the brutal Assad regime. Hezbollah has been spreading terror around the world for decades. As far back as 1983, Hezbollah murdered 220 U.S. Marines and 21 other service personnel with a truck bomb at a U.S. Marine compound in Beirut, Lebanon.

Obama-Era FCC Caught Red-Handed Giving Preferential Treatment To Leftist Groups – Daily Caller

A high-level employee at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2014 appeared to give leaders of liberal-leaning groups preferential treatment for posting and publicizing comments on the agency’s public forum for the net neutrality debate.

Details of the highly friendly support were first described by then-The Washington Post’s Nancy Scola, who referred to it as an “unusual collaboration” in an in-depth report on the FCC’s filing system.

Wendy alleges that, along with other conservative organizations, they were not given the same effortful and enthusiastic treatment their liberal counterparts received.

Artist Installs “Pissing Pug” Statue Next To “Fearless Girl” Statue Near Wall Street – Washington Free Beacon

Gardega named the canine statue “Pissing Pug,” and created it purposefully to take direct aim at “Fearless Girl,” the New York Post reported.

“This is corporate nonsense,” Gardega said of “Fearless Girl.” Gardega added that “Fearless Girl” is only a publicity stunt for the financial firm that commissioned to have it installed.

“Fearless Girl” was commissioned by Boston-based financial services firm State Street Global Advisers, and was placed directly in front of the iconic “Charging Bull” statue on Wall Street. The “Fearless Girl” has been praised by politicians and activists as a symbol of feminism.

Obama’s Freed Terrorist To Be Honored In NYC Puerto Rican Day Parade – Conservative Base

Mississippi Suspect Kills Eight, Including Deputy Sheriff, In House-To-House Rampage – Breitbart

Eight individuals were killed – including a deputy sheriff – during a house-to-house rampage in Mississippi on Saturday night.

The suspect, 35-year-old Willie Cory Godbolt, was arrested after allegedly “holding a 16-year-old hostage.”

The Daily Leader reports that Godbolt was “captured this morning shortly before 7 a.m. at Super Jack’s at East Lincoln Road and Hwy. 84.”

Lincoln County Sheriff Steve Rushing provided a few details tied to the attacks:

It appears the deputy responded to a call at Lee Drive of a resident wanting the suspect removed from the property. Rushing said the deputy and three others were killed there. Two more people were shot and killed at a residence on Coopertown Road, he said. A third crime scene was located near where Godbolt was captured.

According to Fox News/AP, Godbolt has a criminal record that includes:

[Charges for] armed robbery and aggravated assault in 2005 after he allegedly struck a man with a pistol and took his cash and jewelry…

FBI Warned MI5 In January That The Manchester Bomber Was Planning An Attack On Britain – Daily Mail

UK security chiefs were warned in January that Salman Abedi was planning an attack in Britain, it was claimed last night.

According to a security source, the FBI told MI5 that Abedi was part of a North African Islamic State cell plotting to strike a political target in the UK.

The information came from a US investigation into Abedi and his links to terrorist groups in Libya. The Mail on Sunday has also been told that US security services put him on a terror watch list – used by agents to identify key suspects – in 2016.

The shocking claim piles further pressure on MI5 to reveal when and how it became aware of Abedi, and why UK spies decided he did not pose a significant threat to British security…

James Comey Acted On Russian Intelligence He Knew To Be Fake – The Hill

Former FBI Director James Comey acted on key information created by Russian intelligence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that he knew to be fake, CNN reported Friday.

Unidentified officials told CNN that Comey feared that if the information became public it would undermine the investigation as well as the Justice Department itself.

The false information reportedly spurred the then-FBI chief to publicly declare last summer that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was over. Meanwhile, Comey also said that the former Democratic presidential nominee had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.

The officials cited by CNN said Comey feared if the information was not made public – and Russia released the information – law enforcement would be unable to discredit it without undermining intelligence methods and sources.

Declassified Memos Show FBI Illegally Shared Spy Data On Americans With Private Parties – Circa

The FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents that undercut the bureau’s public assurances about how carefully it handles warrantless spy data to avoid abuses or leaks.

In his final congressional testimony before he was fired by President Trump this month, then-FBI Director James Comey unequivocally told lawmakers his agency used sensitive espionage data gathered about Americans without a warrant only when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.”

Once-top secret U.S. intelligence community memos reviewed by Circa tell a different story, citing instances of “disregard” for rules, inadequate training and “deficient” oversight and even one case of deliberately sharing spy data with a forbidden party.

For instance, a ruling declassified this month by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch…

Minnesota Muslim Released Despite Grenade, Bomb Materials Found – WorldNetDaily

The Manchester suicide bomber was reported to authorities repeatedly over a period of five years, as British citizens pointed out his radical activities. Nothing was done.

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…

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.”…

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

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…

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.

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

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.

This is Tillerson’s first visit to Russia as Secretary of State in the Trump administration. On April 12, he will hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The U.S. missile attack on Syria’s Shayrat air base, carried out on April 7, will top the agenda.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, “the recent U.S .missile strike on the Syrian government air base is an act of aggression against a sovereign state and a violation of international law which is likely to strengthen the position of terrorists.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the United States to agree to an impartial investigation of the Khan Shaykhun chemical weapons incident and stop making decisions based on false reports by the so-called White Helmets and other faux non-profit organizations…

U.S. Special Forces Obliterate ISIS Fighters Trying To Assault Base In Southern Syria – Daily Caller

U.S. special forces obliterated an entire Islamic State attack team assaulting a base in southern Syria Saturday, military officials said.

“The enemy got crushed,” a U.S. military official told NBC News.

ISIS fighters launched an assault on the al-Tanf military base in southern Syria, according to the two officials who spoke to NBC News. Approximately 20-30 ISIS fighters, some with suicide vests, were following behind a vehicle that was carrying an improvised explosive device.

American forces are stationed at the base, which is used to train Syrian rebels. Other American troops on a nearby patrol responded after hearing about the attack to provide assistance.

U.S. and coalition forces killed the ISIS fighters through direct fire and airstrikes, leaving zero survivors. No Americans were killed in the fight…

Breakthrough: Pump Reverses Heart Damage Without The Need For A Transplant – Daily Express
.

British doctors last night hailed a medical procedure which sees patients with severe heart disease recover full fitness – without the need for a transplant.

Nearly two-fifths of sufferers went on to make a full recovery when they were given the mechanical pump.

A national shortage of donated hearts for transplant is leading to calls for the battery-operated machines to be considered as a tool which can allow patients to fully restore their health.

The pumps are currently used to support patients with severe heart failure while they wait for a transplant.

A spokesman for the team at Newcastle University Dr Djordje Jakovljevic said: “For the first time, what we have shown is that heart function is restored in some patients to the extent that they are just like someone healthy who has never had heart disease,” he said…

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.

“This area used to be really hot,” said Marlene Castro, a supervisory Border Patrol agent, as she scanned the path ahead for immigrants who had crossed the Rio Grande illegally into the United States. “You couldn’t move. Every time you turned a corner, you’d run into group after group.”

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.

Across the Southwest border, the number of immigrants caught crossing illegally into the United States has dropped dramatically. Fewer than 12,200 people were apprehended in March, a 64% decrease from the same time last year, and the lowest monthly number in at least 17 years…

Leftist Lawmakers In New York Approve “Free” College Tuition For The Middle Class – Daily Freeman

New York will be the first state to make tuition at public colleges and universities free for middle-class students under a state budget approved by lawmakers Sunday.

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.

Dr. Salman Zarka, director of the Ziv Medical Center in the northern Israeli town of Safed and a former colonel in the medical corps who served on the Syrian border, says he “couldn’t then have imagined setting up a humanitarian program for Syrians.” Now his hospital has delivered 19 Syrian babies and sends prescriptions with patients back to their homeland…

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.

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

ICE officers were never able to deport the man despite a lengthy criminal history that includes charges of assault, burglary, and human smuggling.

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.

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.

Duncan decried Texas State’s apparent double standard in allowing radical communist Angela Davis to speak on campus, calling her an “American terrorist,” but not allowing the College Republicans to hold a Women’s Empowerment Summit…

Moonbat-Infested Cambridge, Mass Votes To Impeach Trump – Weasel Zippers

There’s a reason we call it the People’s Republic of Cambridge around here.

The city of Cambridge is weighing whether to call for an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

Vice Mayor Marc McGovern has filed a policy order for Monday’s city council meeting pushing for an investigation.

McGovern said he and others in the city believe Trump has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits government officials from profiting from foreign businesses.

McGovern said he believes Trump is still deeply involved in his business operations and there is evidence showing he has business dealings with foreign countries, which violates the clause.

Cambridge voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election…

Benghazi Liar Susan Rice Requested Unmasking Of Incoming Trump Administration Officials – Medium

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.

Londonistan: 423 New Mosques; 500 Closed Churches – Gatestone Institute

“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together”, according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead “Londonistan”, as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital. No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist. Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate for Literature, was less generous; he called the UK “a cesspit for Islamists”.

“Terrorists can not stand London multiculturalism”, London’s mayor Sadiq Khan said after the recent deadly terror attack at Westminster. The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Above all, Londonistan, with its new 423 mosques, is built on the sad ruins of English Christianity.

The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, but also people. The number of converts to Islam has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster…

Obama Spied, Media Lied – Andrew Klavan

Holy smoking gun, Batman!

Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together.

The media has given credence to Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff’s hysterical charges about how the Republican chair of the committee, Devin Nunes, made his latest discoveries. But Schiff is a dishonest McCarthyite, spewing insinuations and accusations without any proof to back them up.

Nunes, on the other hand, has obviously gotten hold of solid intel showing that Obama spied on Trump and his people, pretty much as the president tweeted back on March 4. The willing Democrat executioners of truth – i.e. the news staffs at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the New York Times – give equal weight to the statements of both men, making it seem like the House Intelligence Committee has simply descended into partisan bickering. But that’s a lie. Nunes has found something. Schiff is smearing him and the president…

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.”

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.

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…

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 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

$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.

A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”

WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

Among the key topical revelations is that the CIA can engage in “false flag” cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant…

Obama Regime Placed Over 100,000 Border-Jumping Children In Homes Headed By Other Illegals – Washington Examiner
.

.
During the last two years of the Obama administration, immigration officials handled the surge of youths across the border by delivering over 100,000 of them to households headed by other illegals, and the result was that 36 percent of the kids never showed up for court hearings.

A new analysis of the prior administration’s open door policy for illegal youths mostly from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, also showed that only 25 percent of those who did go to court were given permission to stay.

The Center for Immigration Studies, in its latest analysis of the crisis in unaccompanied alien children, said:

“From FY 2014 – FY 2016, 106,802 UACs were placed in illegal alien households throughout the country as a result of Obama administration policies…

Hillary Was Tipped Off To Wiretapping Of Trump, Tweeted About It A Week Before The Election – Gateway Pundit

TGP reported earlier that the first FISA request came right after AG Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in June of 2016.

The second FISA request was submitted in October of 2016 just before the election. Hillary Clinton sent out a tweet on October 31st stating that ‘computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump organization to a Russian-based server’.

It appears she was tipped off to the wiretapping prior to the election.

Here is Hillary Clinton’s tweet from October 31st… Computer scientists?… Connect the dots, folks. This was a well coordinated attack on a Presidential candidate. AG Lynch met with Bill Clinton just before the first FISA request.

After they were successful with the second FISA request in October, it appears Bill Clinton passed on the information to his wife to help her win the election. This scandal is about to blow wide open; it’s not going away any time soon. Stay tuned…

D.C. Suburb Cancels School So Leftist Teachers Can Protest Trump – The Federalist

A Washington D.C. suburb that overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 election is preemptively cancelling classes on Wednesday so its teachers can protest Donald Trump.

The same organizers behind the Women’s March, which attracted hundreds of thousands of women in opposition to President Donald Trump the day after his inauguration, are encouraging women to stay home from work on March 8 to show that they aren’t happy about the current president.

Alexandria City Public Schools said that because 300 employees asked for time off on Wednesday, there were not enough teachers to oversee its classrooms.

Democrat Super-Lobbyist Got $170,000 To End U.S. Sanctions On Russian Bank – Daily Caller

Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, who was the national campaign chairman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s losing 2016 campaign for the presidency. Former President Barack Obama imposed the sanctions following the Russian seizure of the Crimean region of Ukraine in 2014.

The lobbying campaign targeted Congress and the executive branch, with Podesta and other lobbyists arranging at least two meetings between Sberbank officers and Department of State officials, according to Elena Teplitskaya, Sberbank’s board chairman, who spoke to House aides in August…

Obama Regime Funneled Billions Of Taxpayer Dollars Into Left-Wing Activist Groups – Daily Wire

Several Liberal Journalists Apparently Want IRS Employees To Commit Felonies To Get Trump’s Taxes – Law Newz

Obtaining Donald Trump‘s tax documents, by any any means necessary, has become sort of an obsession for some on the left. It started back during the campaign in September when The New York Times‘ Editor Dean Baquet suggested that he would go to jail in order to publish Trump’s tax returns.

Strangely enough, about a week later a portion of Trump’s state tax return from the 1990s showed up at the The New York Times. Ever since, there has been a frenzy among some on the left to see who will get the next big scoop.

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.

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).

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!..

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.”…

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

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.

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

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of five senior officials from his Ministry of State Security, according to a South Korean intelligence agency.

The issue stems from the totalitarian state’s refusal of any wrongdoing in the apparent assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother, Kim Jong Nam.

The son of Song Hye-Rim, a South Korean-born actress who is believed to have been a mistress of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, was killed outside the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia earlier this month.

Fake Black Woman Rachel Dolezal Is Nearly Homeless, Living On Food Stamps And Still White – Daily Caller

Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month.

“There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.”

Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers, even from a supermarket. She has, however, been offered work in porn and reality TV. While a friend helped pay her rent for February, Dolezal expects she’ll lose her home next month.

“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” said the former Africana studies instructor. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”…

Joseph Wapner, a retired Los Angeles County judge who gained national fame as a syndicated TV jurist, died today, according to TMZ.com. He was 97.

The retired Los Angeles County judge is credited with changing television with his role on the long-running syndicated TV show, “The People’s Court.”

TMZ reported that Wapner was ill, and had been taken from a hospital to home, to pass away, on Friday.

After retiring from the bench in 1979, Wapner agreed to move to television.

Chinese-American Businessman In Hiding After Confessing To Illegal Fundraising For The Clintons; Fears Untimely Death – Zero Hedge

Those who are connected to the crimes and misdemeanors of the Clinton cartel live in hiding for fear of their lives.

Of course there was funneling of money going on. The Wikileaks and Guccifer 2.0 hacks went along way in documenting the quid pro quo nature of Clinton diplomacy.

Back in the 90s, it was selling nuclear secrets to China, and schmoozing with high powered Chinese individuals, caught up in real estate deals, fundraising schemes and the like.

So it is little surprising, though certainly alarming, that this story has surfaced of a Chinese-American businessman who is living in hiding and who felt compelled to make an ‘insurance policy’ video detailing his involvement in the Clinton admin’s “Chinagate” which involved laundered funds from high powered Chinese businessmen:

Trump Disses Fake News Media By Refusing To Attend White House Correspondents Dinner – Breitbart

Donald Trump has further escalated his war on the mainstream media, as he announced on Saturday that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Trump will be the first president to do so in 30 years.

In a tweet, Trump said that “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!”

The dinner, which is set to take place April 29th, is usually attended by the President and first lady, the cabinet, and large swathes of the press. Proceeds go towards scholarships for aspiring journalists, and the event normally hosts a comedian who mocks the President and other members of the press.

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…

The panel ruled that two Texas landlords, who has sued seeking protection from the law, did not have standing because they could not prove a credible threat of prosecution.

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.

Republicans in Congress are expected to send a stream of bills – most of which require a single sentence – to President Donald Trump’s desk, using a process known as the Congressional Review Act to repeal agency rules. The act was tucked into 1996 legislation tied to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s famous “Contract with America.”

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. Congress generally has 60 days to begin repeal of those rules.

“We’re directly attacking the over-regulation issue, thanks to the Congressional Review Act, and plan to take as many of these job-killing regulations off the books as possible,” McConnell said…

Hillary Clinton’s Eye Problems Return In DNC Welcome Video – American Mirror

Despite being relieved of the stresses of a presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton’s apparent eye problems reoccurred during a welcome video she produced for the Democratic National Committee meeting on Friday.

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…

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…

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.”…

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.

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

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….

‘DeploraBall’ Organizer To File Charges Against ‘Disrupt J-20’ Gang: Conspiracy To Commit Domestic Terrorism – Real Clear Politics

Mike Cernovich, author, pro-Trump Twitterer, and organizer of the ‘Deploraball,’ told followers on a Monday evening Periscope broadcast that he plans to file civil charges against anti-Trump protesters caught on camera planning to attack the event with stink bombs.

The ‘Deploraball’ is going to be a gathering of Trump supporters on Thursday night in Washington D.C. to celebrate the presidential inauguration. It is one of several inaugural balls planned in the city this week. Members of the ‘Disrupt J-20’ and ‘D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition’ groups were recorded by undercover journalists from James O’Keefe’s ‘Project Veritas’ planning to release stink bombs and activate fire alarms at the party.

“They made a real big mistake,” Cernovich said about the ‘Disrupt J-20’ organizers. “When you’re threatened with terrorism, and you have people saying they’re going to commit terrorism at a party you’re hosting, you have to take that quite seriously.”

“They seem to think it is just a prank, and I would refer them to the Dept. of Justice’s website – This is actually a felony,” he continued. “This isn’t funny at all. It is terrorism… We have filed a criminal complaint against the conspirators, and the FBI is investigating that right now. Tomorrow we will be filing a civil action against them also.

Black Race Activist Calls Black Band Playing At Trump Inauguration ‘Coons’ – Daily Caller

A race activist referred to a historically black college’s marching band as “coons” for playing at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Tariq Nasheed, a black writer and activist, used a racist trope to describe Talladega College’s marching band.

“So the HBCU [historically black colleges and universities] Talladega College Marching Band has agreed to perform at the Trump inauguration… that’s interesting,” Nasheed wrote, adding a picture of a group of raccoons playing instruments.

“Coons” has been commonly used as a slur for black people. It was usually used to describe a black person whose only purpose was to entertain white people.

The announcement of the band’s decision to play at the inauguration was met with a mix of outrage and support. Some alumni from the college protested the decision, while others have donated money to help send the band to the inauguration.

A GoFundMe page set up for the students raised nearly $600,000, a far cry from the original intent to raise only $75,000.

“We didn’t get into this for any political reasons,” the college’s President Billy Hawkins explained. “We think this will be a phenomenal experience for our students. They get a chance to perform in front of the whole world, on an international stage.”…

Rio Grande Prison Riot Leaves 26 Inmates Dead During Clash Between Rival Gangs – Daily Mail

The latest Brazilian prison riot has left a confirmed 26 inmates dead – and at least three men beheaded.

Rival drug gangs have been clashing in the country’s prison system since the start of the year and a number of massacres have led to 140 prisoner deaths.

Security forces stormed the prison at dawn on Sunday and restored order after 14 hours of violence, local authorities said. They now believe all bodies are accounted for.

The state security office for Rio Grande do Norte state had reported earlier in the day that there were 27 deaths, but later lowered that by one.

State security officials said fighting between rival gangs broke out Saturday at the adjacent Alcacuz and Rogerio Coutinho prisons near the city of Natal.

Officials waited until dawn Sunday before entering to try to re-impose control, state security chief Caio Cesar Bezerra said.

“This way we guaranteed a calm intervention, a pacific intervention without resistance from the inmates,” Bezerra said.

Photos taken yesterday show the magnitude of violence that plagues the country’s incarceration system.

Like many prisons across the country, Alcacuz is overcrowded, with more than 1,000 inmates crammed into a facility meant for 620.

Another official earlier said at least three inmates were beheaded – a feature of similar massacres in other jails at the start of this month…

While it’s a sure bet the majority of news organizations will avoid covering, pro-Trump events, the few who give them scant coverage without a doubt will denigrate and mischaracterize the groups such as Bikers for Trump and Cops for Trump…

How Chuck Schumer Caused Bank Collapse Dems Now Blame On Trump’s Treasury Nominee – Richard Pollock

Senate Democrats – led by senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Vermont Independent Bernie Sanders – hope to defeat Steven Mnuchin, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, by focusing on his alleged role in the 2008 collapse of California’s IndyMac bank.

Warren has launched a web page on the official United States Senate website that calls Mnuchin, “the foreclosure king” because, as she and left-wing activists charge, he threw thousands of homeowners onto the street after he bought IndyMac. Mnuchin’s Senate confirmation hearing begins Thursday.

But The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group (TheDCNF) has uncovered extensive evidence that the person who triggered IndyMac’s financial crisis, which led to one of the largest bank failures in American history, was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

Schumer started a $100 million-a-day run on the bank after he gave reporters a letter on June 26, 2008, addressed to federal regulators saying he was “concerned that IndyMac’s financial deterioration poses significant risks to both taxpayers and borrowers.”

The letter spooked depositors who in the next 11 days withdrew a record $1.3 billion from the bank.

News reports filed at the time squarely place the blame the bank’s failure on Schumer. The Los Angeles Times, for example, reported July 2, 2008, that “the letter stunned some Wall Street analysts, who said Schumer was in effect sealing the lender’s fate by raising the prospect of its failure.”…

FBI & NYPD: Clinton Foundation Probed For Money Laundering, Financial Transactions With Islamic Terrorists – True Pundit
.

Money launderers who bragged on a secret federal wire tap that they could employ Clinton Foundation connections to funnel and cleanse millions in illicit cash have sparked a newly-minted FBI investigation into the embattled charity run by Hillary Clinton and her family, federal law enforcement officials confirm.

The money laundering allegations being probed by the FBI have been buoyed by recent revelations and evidence discovered by the NYPD from a laptop confiscated from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s Manhattan residence. According to NYPD, several of the emails recovered on the hard drive disclosed sensitive financial details of the Clintons and their charity. That evidence is now in the hands of the FBI too, whose New York field office has opened a parallel Clinton Foundation investigation…

Was Hillary Clinton’s Nomination Legitimate? Six Reasons To Say No – Breitbart

Democrats are consoling themselves by claiming Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate, but they’ll do themselves and the nation a favor if they consider their own faults – including the top-to-bottom corruption in their own party and political strategy.

1. The Democrats’ rigged primary: Democrats should begin by accepting the obvious truth of a rigged primary revealed by WikiLeaks. The party’s key leaders – not the party’s voters – picked and promoted Hillary Clinton, meaning she was secretly coronated before the primary ever began. Her rival Bernie Sanders never had a chance. The “nomination” contest was theater designed to make Sanders voters accept Clinton. His voters ought to be furious at Sanders for playing along with this farce, which he most certainly did.

When Party elders shriek about nefarious Russian interference in the election process, they’re trying to distract from what the leaked DNC emails actually said, and the fact that we now know those emails are 100 percent genuine, despite early Democrat statements to the contrary. One of those shrieking claims came from Donna Brazile, who was directly involved in doctoring a primary debate by leaking questions to Clinton, not to Sanders.

2. The Democrat superdelegate system: Then there’s the openly rigged element of the Democratic primary, the superdelegate system. It is a political instrument specifically designed to shut down insurgencies and make the interests of Democrat voters secondary to the judgment of party elites, and the powerful lobbyists who manipulate them…

Steelers Advance To AFC Championship With 18-16 Win Over Chiefs – Fox Sports

Who needs to reach the end zone when you have Le’Veon Bell chewing up yards and the clock, and Chris Boswell setting an NFL playoff record with six field goals?

Throw in a stingy Pittsburgh defense for most of Sunday night, and a multitude of mistakes by Kansas City, and the Steelers’ 18-16 victory sent them into the AFC championship game.

The Steelers (13-5) needed to hold off a last-ditch threat by the Chiefs (12-5) before advancing to face New England next Sunday night for a spot in the Super Bowl. The Patriots won at Pittsburgh 27-16, but Ben Roethlisberger was injured and didn’t play.

Spencer Ware’s 1-yard touchdown run took Kansas City within 18-16. The Chiefs at first converted the 2-pointer to tie it, but tackle Eric Fisher – the first overall selection in the 2013 draft – was penalized for holding. The next try failed…

One Hundred African Children Accuse UN Peacekeepers Of Rape – Your News Wire

An investigation has been launched into claims that UN peacekeepers brutally raped over 100 children in the Central African Republic.

This is not the first time UN workers have been accused of violent and sexual criminal activity. Similar crimes were reported after the UN entered Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, Sudan and Kosovo – with reports of child sex trafficking becoming ‘rampant’ as a result.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports:

In the past several years, the UN was caught attempting to cover-up the fact that there were 231 people in Haiti who claimed they were sexually violated by UN peacekeepers, and were forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for food and supplies that were intended as relief packages.

There are almost too many cases to list in which high-profile public figures or organizations were accused in pedophilia or human trafficking cases. However, they almost always dodge any prosecution or public scrutiny due to their control of the legal system and media.

There have been many cases in recent history where establishment figures have been caught up in child prostitution rings but quickly had the story swept under the rug.

One such case was on June 29, 1989, when the Washington Times’ Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald reported on a Washington D.C. prostitution ring that had intimate connections with the White House and President George H.W. Bush. It was suspected that this was connected with the Franklin prostitution ring that was being exposed at the same time, in a different part of the country…

Packers Topple Cowboys To Advance To NFC Championship Game – USA Today

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ midseason declaration that his team would “run the table” was merely a correctly predicted push to the NFC North title for a then-struggling 4-6 team.

Ringling Bros. Closing ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ After 146 Years – New York Post

Send home the clowns.

After 146 years, the curtain is coming down forever on “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus’ last performance will be May 21 at the Nassau Coliseum.

The show stoppers included high operating costs, declining attendance and changing public tastes.

Not to mention a long and costly legal battle with animal rights advocates, which ended with its hugest stars – the elephants – being pink-slipped. Elephants had been the symbol of the circus since an Asian pachyderm named Jumbo joined the show in 1882.

Employes were told the sad news Saturday night in Orlando.

The circus will perform 30 more times. Besides the show on Long Island, there will be one in Brooklyn. Other stops on its last tour include Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia and Boston.

With its exotic animals and death-defying acrobats, the big top had been a huge draw from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s.

Phineas Taylor Barnum had made a traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities popular, while the five Ringling brothers performed juggling acts and skits. Eventually, they merged and the modern circus was born.

Its clowns, acrobats and horseback riders – along with their animals – were transported across the country in special cars on extra-long trains.

New York staged its own yearly spectacle. When the circus came to town, the performers, along with invited guests, rode elephants from the Sunnyside rail yards through the Queens Midtown Tunnel and then along Manhattan streets to Madison Square Garden…

Shootout At U.S. Consulate In Nuevo Laredo Part Of Cartel-Terrorist Attack Plan For Trump Inauguration – Jusicial Watch

A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American Consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch. An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. Consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas.

The Mexican military responded to the attack, law enforcement sources on both sides of the border confirm insisting that their identities be kept confidential for security reasons, and at least three soldiers were either killed or critically wounded in the ambush. A local newspaper in Tamaulipas reported that 13 people died during a shootout in Nuevo Laredo, referring to the deceased as heavily armed “delinquents” with an arsenal that includes 12 automatic weapons, a rocket launcher, grenade, loads of ammunition and drugs in three vehicles, one of them armored. The deceased have not been identified and Mexican authorities will continue to investigate, the article states, attributing the information to a press release issued by Mexico’s Defense Secretary.

Judicial Watch’s law enforcement and intelligence sources say the barrage outside what’s soon to be the new U.S. Consulate is connected to a broad operation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to send President-elect Donald Trump a message by engaging in attacks at border ports…

Document Reveals Clinton Global Initiative Is Shutting Down – Disobedient Media

A document from the New York State Department of Labor reveals that the Clinton Global Initiative is being discontinued.

The news of the closure of the Clinton Global Initiative comes after reports emerged in the Fall of 2016 that they were laying off dozens of workers at their New York offices.

The Clinton Global Initiative was founded in 2005 by Bill Clinton and associate Doug Band.

Wastebook: Taxpayers Billed For Computers To Binge Watch ‘Desperate Housewives’, Fish On Treadmills – Washington Free Beacon

The federal government spent millions of taxpayer dollars studying if women can pick Barbie out of a lineup, creating robot flowers, and building a computer that binge watches Desperate Housewives, according to a new report on wasteful spending.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) on Tuesday released Wastebook: PORKémon Go, the latest chronicle of waste in a series started by former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn (R.). The report covers 50 items and over $5 billion in spending on outrageous government programs and frivolous projects.

“Within mere days, the national debt will top $20 trillion, the largest amount ever owed by any nation in history, and the federal government’s authority to borrow expires in March,” Flake wrote in the introduction to the report. “But rather than making a long overdue resolution to be fiscally responsible, the promises from Washington are to spend even more.”

The report revealed countless examples of questionable science spending, including $300,000 from the National Eye Institute and National Science Foundation studying whether women or men spent more time playing with Barbie dolls when they were children.

“The researchers’ intuition was that men may have played more with Transformers then [sic] Barbies when they were younger, and vice versa for women,” according to the report.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University also studied whether women were able to identify the real Barbie in a lineup of other dolls, challenging the “popular misconception that all Barbie dolls have the same face,” a researcher said…

Alibaba’s Jack Ma Chats With Trump About How To Create 1 Million U.S. Jobs Over 5 Years – CNBC

President-elect Donald Trump said he had a “great meeting” with Alibaba executive chairman Jack Ma on Monday, when they discussed 1 million new U.S. jobs.

Ma said that Alibaba’s expansion would focus on products like garments, wine and fruits, with a special focus on trade between the American midwest and southeast Asia.

“We’re focused on small business,” Ma told reporters. “We specifically talked about… supporting 1 million small businesses, especially in the Midwest of America. Small businesses on the platform selling products – agriculture products and America services – to China and Asia, because we’re pretty big in Asia.”

Where those jobs would come from is unclear. While an Alibaba spokesperson told CNBC before the meeting that the Chinese online retail giant company would create 1 million jobs over five years, Ma’s comments focused on supporting small businesses.

“Alibaba will create 1 million U.S. jobs by enabling 1 million American small businesses and farmers to sell American goods to China and Asian consumers on the Alibaba platform,” the company said in a statement.

Like Etsy or eBay, Alibaba enables third-party sellers in China to take their own businesses to the web. The company only had 36,446 full-time employees, almost all in China, as of March 31, according to SEC filings. But with more than 10 million active sellers as of 2015, Alibaba estimates its China retail marketplaces “contributed to the creation of over 15 million job opportunities.”…

Thousands Of U.S. Troops Arrive In Europe In “One Of Largest Deployments Since The Cold War” – Zero Hedge

Just days after we reported that the US had begun deploying some 2,800 tanks, trucks and other military equipment to Germany, from where they would be transported by rail and road to Eastern Europe as part of a buildup of NATO reinforcements against “Russian expansion”, the next U.S. deployment has made its way to Europe over the weekend, when some 4,000 U.S. troops arrived in the German port of Bremerheven, on their way to Wroclaw, Poland under a planned NATO operation to “reassure the alliance’s Eastern European allies” in the face of what NATO has dubbed mounting Russian aggression.

The American soldiers landed in Wroclaw, home to a key Nato and Polish air base in south-west Poland. The troops will be followed by the roughly 2,800 tanks and other pieces of military equipment which are currently en route from Germany.

The delivery of U.S. Abrams tanks, Paladin artillery, and Bradley fighting vehicles, as well as supporting troops, marks a new phase of America’s continuous presence in Europe, which will now be based on a nine-month rotation.

Why provoke Russia with yet another mass deployment? Because as NATO Major General Timothy McGuire told reporters, last week, when asked if the large deployment was meant to send a message to Russia, “The best way to maintain the peace is through preparation.” And while we are quoting, here is another good line from the movie Spice Like Us: “A weapon unused is a useless weapon.” The U.S. military industrial complex is doing everything in its power to make sure a lot of weapons are used in the future…

A group of liberal Hollywood celebrities are threatening a “massive, all-round Hollywood strike” unless Donald Trump resigns. Describing Hollywood as “the base of the entire modern American culture“, the group also claims to be speaking on behalf of “all of humanity.”

“It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”

Feds Still Don’t Know If Their Energy Data Is Reliable After 21 Years – Daily Caller

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) officials refused to fix a major management flaw that allowed data manipulation to plague a federal lab for nearly two decades.

A USGS lab in Lakewood, Colo. never created an adequate system to prevent data manipulation, allowing the systemic problem to persist for 18 out of 19 years in existence, according to records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) Investigative Group.

USGS could have resolved the issue as early as 2008 when the manipulation of data was first observed, a highly critical internal memo obtained by TheDCNF reveals.

“This should have been the laboratory’s first priority,” the October, 2015, memo stated.

Lab data was misrepresented for another six years, until 2014, when it was again flagged. The facility was closed in 2016 following several investigations.

Cosmetic in nature, the lab’s closure doesn’t actually solve the issue, since other USGS labs also lack a system that ensures data quality. The manipulated data impacted a variety of energy-related categories, such as the quality of coal reserves and uranium deposits. Affected projects represent $108 million in funding and the effects of the bad data could be “serious and far ranging,” a 2016 inspector general (IG) report said.

A so-called “quality management system” is necessary to ensure “quality standards” and ensure “that issued products are scientifically reliable,” according to a 2015 IG report.

Berkeley Murder Suspect Is Trans/Queer, Pro-Palestine, BLM-Supporting Social Justice Warrior – GotNews

Pablo Gomez, Jr., the first murder suspect of 2017 in the city of Berkeley, California, is a transsexual or “queer”, pro-Palestine, #BlackLivesMatter-supporting UC Berkeley student and “social justice warrior” (SJW), who is apparently studying “Chicanx/Latinx Studies.”

According to Berkeleyside:

Police are looking for a person described as armed and dangerous who authorities say is responsible for Berkeley’s first homicide of 2017.

After a seriously wounded woman flagged someone down for help just north of the UC Berkeley campus shortly before noon Friday, police ultimately located a “violent crime” scene and discovered the body of a person they say has not been identified in the 2400 block of Ashby Avenue.

Berkeleyside’s article was corrected to say that Gomez uses the pronoun “they” instead of “he” or “she”.

Gomez’ Facebook profile shows clear support for Palestine. He is also a #BlackLivesMatter supporter and protester, and his Tumblr account is full of far-left “social justice”-style content.

Gomez also posted arguments in favor of looting on his (her? their? xir? who knows!) Tumblr account.

British Government Will Not Request Prison Sentence For “Child Migrant” Who Raped 5-Year-Old Boy – Breitbart

The Attorney-General’s Office (AGO) will not request a prison sentence for a “child migrant” who raped a 5-year-old boy in late 2015, Breitbart London has established.

The migrant, who told the boy he would “break him into pieces” if he told anyone about the attack, was handed a non-custodial, three-year rehabilitation order by Judge Jonathan Bennett. Defence lawyer Alwyn Jones welcomed the ruling, saying he hoped it would “address the underlying issues this young man has.”

Any member of the public can request that the Law Officers of England and Wales appeal sentences of this nature under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme. Breitbart London reported last November that at least one unknown member of the public had done so in this case.

However, the AGO has since told Breitbart London that Tory MP Robert Buckland, the Solicitor-General, has “carefully reviewed the papers” and “concluded that if the sentence imposed on the offender was referred to the Court of Appeal, the Court would not increase the sentence”.

It was on this basis that Buckland “decided not the refer the case”. The AGO gave Breitbart London no indication as to its own assessment of the sentence’s suitability.

The original sentence was just one of a series of rulings which have encouraged accusations that the judiciary are “out of touch” with the ordinary public, with some calling for judges to be subject to retention elections, as in Japan and several American states…

Six Months After Brexit Vote, UK ‘Has World’s Top Economy’ – Newsbusters

In June, when UK voters decided to leave the European Union in the “Brexit” referendum, the U.S. press told the American people that the UK economy would suffer greatly as a result. Moody’s economist and max Hillary Clinton contributor Mark Zandi predicted that it would be “going down the rabbit hole.” At CBS News, Mellody Hobson said that “they’re acting as if a recession is a foregone conclusion.”

It’s one thing to predict a disaster that doesn’t happen. It’s quite another to predict bad news and have things turn out pretty darned well, which is thus far what has occurred. You’d never know it from reading U.S.-based establishment press coverage, but the UK economy, as reported in the UK Times, “ended last year as the strongest of the world’s advanced economies with growth accelerating in the six months after the Brexit vote.”

The result is so completely the opposite of what was predicted that the chief economist at England’s central bank, in a moment of refreshing candor that folks in the U.S. can only wish they would see coming from our Federal Reserve, has admitted that economists committed historically serious forecasting errors.

In another development we can only dream about here in the U.S., thanks to our partisan academic establishment, a British university has assessed forecasts of how the UK economy would perform outside of the EU, which were used to try to sway voters to remain in it, as “flawed and partisan.”…

5,000 National Guardsmen To Be Deployed At Trump Inauguration – Washington Examiner

Washington is beefing up security in the run up to President-elect Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration, including the deployment of 5,000 National Guard troops downtown amid security concerns.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said despite increased security concerns, the city is prepared and ready for the event, she said Friday at a press conference with U.S. Secret Service and other security forces.

Riots, Looting In Mexico Over Spiking Gas Prices – Breitbart

Authorities arrested 48 men in connection with a protest that evolved into a large scale riot and the looting of numerous downtown stores. The protest appeared to be connected to Mexico’s most recent spike in gasoline prices.

Nuevo León Authorities confirmed the arrests of 48 rioters on Thursday night. The suspects allegedly assaulted other citizens, journalists, and caused widespread damage to private property as well as state, local and federal buildings.

Aldo Fasci, spokesman for Nuevo León’s security services, said the government supported the citizen’s right to peacefully protest but the government would go after the agitators who sparked the violence.

Much like in the rest of Mexico, the protests began in a peaceful manner. However, a team of agitators reportedly traveled to Nuevo Leon from the central part of Mexico and infiltrated the protest sparking the violence.

“The provocation was evident,” Fasci said. He stated that the individuals currently being interviewed by state officials speak with accents that are particular to the central part of Mexico.

In Monterrey, the looters struck at three separate shopping centers. as well as vandalizing. They also vandalized the Mayor’s Office, the Governor’s Office and other federal buildings.

The civil unrest began late last year when Mexico’s federal government announced a new gasoline price increase that took effect in early 2017…

Ford To Scrap Mexico Plant, Invest In Michigan; CEO Cites Trump Policies – Fox News

Before he’s even taken office, President-elect Donald Trump has proven to be quite the job creator.

Ford Motor Company announced Tuesday it will cancel a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and will instead invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant, directly tying the decision to “pro-growth policies” championed by President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump had previously been critical of Ford’s plans to build in Mexico. After the announcement, Trump tweeted a link to a story about the Ford decision and then added in a subsequent message: “Instead of driving jobs and wealth away, AMERICA will become the world’s great magnet for INNOVATION & JOB CREATION.”

Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News For NBC – Daily Caller

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News to take on a broad role at NBC News.

The Fox News star will host a daytime news show and anchor a Sunday night show, as well as regularly take part in breaking news and special event coverage at the network, the network announced in a statement Tuesday. The amount she was offered to move to NBC has not been disclosed.

Kelly was reportedly offered more than $20 million by Fox to stay on when her current contract expires, an offer other networks vying for her indicated they could not match. But she has hinted in recent interviews and in her new book, “Settle for More,” that she wouldn’t decide based on the highest bid; the broad role offered at NBC appears to have sweetened the deal.

One person briefed on Kelly’s discussions with NBC told The New York Times the network chairman, Andrew Lack, won her over by starting negotiations with an open-ended question about what she was seeking rather than immediately making some kind of offer. The resulting offer was tailored accordingly, offering for example, a daytime slot that would allow her to have dinner with her husband and see her kids off to school.

“Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career,” Lack said in the statement. “She’s demonstrated tremendous skill and poise, and we’re lucky to have her.”…

France Bans Parents From Spanking Their Kids – WNYW

France has banned spanking children. A new law went into effect at the start of the year.

The French Parliament approved the no spanking policy last month. It came after a European human rights body warned France that it wasn’t doing enough to prevent spanking and other kinds of corporal punishment of children.

In 2015, the Council of Europe said France was violating the European social charter because French law doesn’t prohibit parents and others from corporal punishment of children in a “sufficiently clear, binding and precise manner.”

While now illegal, the new law does not dictate what any punishment would be for violators.

Priest Accused Of Organising Orgies In Rectory, Pimping Out 15 Women – The Independent

An Italian priest is being investigated for allegedly organising orgies in his rectory and pimping out up to 15 lovers.

Catholic Father Andrea Contin, a parish priest in the northern city of Padua in Veneto, is under police investigation on suspicion of living off immoral earnings and psychological violence.

A variety of sex toys and videos, purportedly showing orgies taking place on the San Lazzaro church premises, have been seized after complaints from three female parishioners.

The 48-year-old also allegedly concealed pornographic home videos in covers bearing the names of various popes.

He is accused of farming out some of his lovers to men on wife-swapping websites, according to The Times.

The priest also allegedly took his female friends for stays at a naturist and swingers resort in Cap d’Agde on the southern French coast.

Complaints were reportedly first made to the local bishop last summer but church authorities did not police, saying they had not yet completed their own investigation.

One 49-year-old church volunteer, who says she had an affair with Father Contin and had sex with him in the rectory, told Il Mattino di Padova: “There were a lot of women hovering around him. I didn’t understand that at first, only later.”

China Building Floating Nuclear Power Plant In Disputed Waters – Daily Caller

Taxpayer-Funded £18 Million Tidal Energy Scheme Supposed To Power 600 Homes Stops Working After Just Three Months – Daily Mail

An £18million tidal energy scheme, which was supposed to power 600 homes, has stopped working after just three months.

The taxpayer-funded DeltaStream project in Pembrokeshire in Wales, was designed to use the flow of the ocean with a 39ft turbine installed on the seabed near Ramsey Island.

But the system developed a fault and stopped generating electricity just weeks after being turned on.

Its operator Tidal Energy Ltd has now gone into administration and is seeking a buyer.

The £18million ‘wet elephant’ received £8million funding of EU money and £500,000 from the Welsh Government.

The generator was fitted with a sonar radar to detect nearby wildlife including seals, porpoises and dolphins and would shut off if they came to close.

But the sonar developed an ‘intermittent fault’ in March 2016 – after being launched the previous December.

Development director Chris Williams of Tidal Energy Ltd said defended the massive cost of DeltaStream saying it was a ‘research’ project.

He said: ‘The project was a research and development project. It was never put in the water to generate massive amounts of electricity.

‘The purpose of the project was to provide the essential learning, new knowledge, know how and experience to progress the industry in Wales…

Trump Blasts Leftist Chicago Mayor For Record-Setting 762 Homicides And 4,331 Shooting Victims In 2016 –

1,565 “Refugees” In U.S. Diagnosed With Active TB Since 2012, Three Times More Than Previously Reported – Breitbart

Between 2012 and 2015, 1,565 refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in the United States, according to annual reports published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The CDC data, which has been public but obscure until now, shows that the number of refugees diagnosed with active TB in recent years is more than three times greater than previously reported by any media outlet.

The number of refugees diagnosed with TB in the United States has increased every year since 2012, the first year the CDC began publishing data on foreign-born cases of the disease by category, when 358 were diagnosed. In 2013, 396 refugees were diagnosed with TB. The following year, 2014, 402 refugees were diagnosed with TB, and in 2015, the number of refugees diagnosed with TB rose again to 409. Data for 2016 has not yet been reported.

In October, Breitbart News reported that 476 cases of active TB among refugees have been reported in the fifteen states that made that data available. Thirty-five states did not make the data available, even though they had apparently reported it to the CDC:

At least eight cases of active TB were diagnosed among refugees upon their arrival in Minnesota in 2015, bringing the total number of cases of active TB among refugees in Minnesota over the past six years to at least 304. That also increases the number of active TB cases diagnosed among refugees over the past six years in the fifteen states in which Breitbart News has been able to obtain data to 476, broken down as follows…

More than 1,000 migrants tried to jump a high double fence between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Sunday in a violent assault that saw one officer lose an eye, local authorities said.

A group of 1,100 people from sub-Saharan Africa trying to reach Europe stormed the border fence just after 4 am (0300 GMT) on New Year’s Day in an “extremely violent and organised” way, said the central government’s representative office in Ceuta.

None however managed to get through, bar two who were badly injured and taken to hospital in Ceuta, the office said in a statement. A similar assault on December 9 saw more than 400 migrants enter the tiny enclave.

They tried “to force open some of the doors in the external fence, using iron bars, wire cutters and large stones with which they assaulted Moroccan forces and (Spanish) Guardia Civil (police) agents,” it added.

Five Spanish policemen and 50 members of the Moroccan forces were injured, including one who lost an eye, it said.

Judge Deals Obamacare Another Blow, Blocking Transgender And Abortion Protections – IJR

In what some may call yet another blow to the outgoing president’s legacy, just one day before the new policy was to take effect, a federal judge in Texas has blocked the “enforcement of an Obama administration policy seeking to extend anti-discrimination protections under the Affordable Care Act to transgender health and abortion-related services,” reports Reuters.

The injunction was granted due to U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor’s belief that it was in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.

He also ruled that it was an infringement “on the rights of private healthcare providers under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” writing that if enforced, the new regulation would:

“…require them to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender transitions and abortions, regardless of their contrary religious beliefs or medical judgment.”

According to The Blaze, this ruling comes on the heels of Judge O’Connor blocking a “federal directive” that forced public schools to allow students to use whatever restroom matched their gender identity.

The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund director of impact litigation, Ezra Young, was deeply troubled by the judge’s current ruling, stating:

“Judge O’Connor’s conclusion that transgender people and persons who have had abortions are somehow excepted from protection is deeply troubling, legally specious, and morally repugnant.”…

Trump Team Causes Tizzy With Personnel Inquiries To Obama Agencies – Fox News

Inquiries from Donald Trump’s transition team to federal agencies about their work on hot-button issues like climate change and ‘violent extremism’ – and about the staffers involved – have spurred questions over what the incoming administration has planned for those programs.

His team, in the roughly seven weeks since the election, has posed such questions to the departments of Energy, State and Homeland Security.

Critics of President-elect Trump have suggested the inquiries are a sign his administration intends to gut key programs and punish the staffers involved. Republican defenders, though, say these concerns are overblown.

“The Democrats are trying to talk about anything other than their own problems, and currently they include stoking faux outrage about President-elect Trump rolling back women’s rights and firing bureaucrats who don’t agree with his environmental policy,” Republican strategist Joe Desilets said Wednesday.

The inquiries began earlier this month when transition team members submitted 74 questions to the Energy Department regarding climate change and other policy issues, including two about staffers who worked on President Obama’s climate agenda.

Energy officials have pledged to cooperate with the incoming Republican administration but didn’t provide the staffers’ names. The transition team hastily struck the questions, but not before a storm of criticism…

Muslim Migrant In Austria Stabs Woman For Reading Bible – Breitbart

An Afghan migrant attacked a woman at an asylum centre in Austria because she was reading a bible.

The attack took place in the town on Timelkam in the state of Upper Austria. The attacker was a 22-year-old migrant from Afghanistan who became annoyed that the 50-year-old woman had been invited by Christian residents to read the bible.

Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung says he ran into the kitchen where the woman was talking and attempted to stab her in her upper body. Her thick winter coat protected from serious harm, however she fell and injured her ear due the force of the blow.

Police arrived at the scene and arrested the migrant. He admitted he had overreacted, although he told police this was due to “personal problems”. He also stated that he had never seen the woman before the attack.

There have been numerous incidents of Christians coming under attack in migrant centres across Europe.

One charity said that over 700 Christians have been attacked in German asylums homes since May 2016, with the majority of perpetrators being Muslim.

Christian charity Open Doors said that 83 per cent of the cases reported included multiple assaults, while almost half of victims claim they have received death threats from fellow migrants. Another 44 said they had been sexually assaulted.

John Kerry’s Practiced Betrayal Of Friends – Wesley Pruden

John Kerry doesn’t come late to the betrayal of friends. He has had considerable practice.

In 1971, when he was a young lieutenant just back from Vietnam, where he was a decorated skipper of a Swift Boat patrolling the Mekong River, he appeared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee to pay his “respects” to the American soldiers, sailors and Marines he fought a war with.

Representing all those veterans, he told the senators, he wanted to talk about war crimes he said “were committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”

Mr. Kerry proceeded to slander and defame hundreds of thousands of young Americans who were serving at their country’s call in a distant place where none wanted to be, doing their best at achieving the impossible.

Most of us who were there as observers and witnesses – I spent the better part of three years in Vietnam and Southeast Asia as a newspaper correspondent – saw ugly anger at work, the brutal way of war since Cain picked up a stone to slay his brother Abel. Occasional violence verged on atrocity, but we saw kindness and mercy in the midst of the noisy clangor of killing.

Mr. Kerry testified that he saw his country only at the work of atrocity, young men, many of them highly decorated, merciless in pursuit of barbarism. He told of swapping war stories with men who “personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”…

Israel Urges Jews To Leave France, Suspends “Working Ties” With Countries That Voted For UN Resolution – Zero Hedge

In an unexpected escalation that was not the result of Israel’s angry response to Friday’s UN vote which passed a resolution condemning the country’s settlements on occupied Palestinian territory, and which the U.S. refused to veto, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday called on French Jews to leave their country to protest a Paris-hosted conference planned for next month aimed at restarting Palestine-Israel peace talks, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth has reported.

According to Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, the Israeli government has repeatedly stated in recent months that it would not participate in the conference, which is scheduled to be held on Jan. 15 with the participation of representatives from 70 countries. Speaking at a meeting of his right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, Lieberman reportedly said: “Perhaps it’s time to tell the Jews of France, ‘This isn’t your country, this isn’t your land. Leave France and come to Israel’.”

“That’s the only response to this plot,” Lieberman added, in reference to the planned conference.

Holy Crap! A Christmas Story Is Racist! – Brian Anderson

If you’re like me, or millions of other Americans, part of your holiday tradition involves watching A Christmas Story not just because it’s a hilarious film but also because it’s pretty much the only thing on TV Christmas Day. Imagine my horror to find out this classic movie is really really racist. According to the liberal ding dongs at Salon, Ralphie, the leg lamp, the Red Ryder, and everything about this Christmas mainstay is representative of white supremacy.

I wish I were making this up, but this is an actual headline on Salon:

Dreaming of a white “Christmas Story”: A Yuletide classic’s “color-blind” racism

Under its surface, the innocent-seeming Reagan-era classic reveals much about America’s shifting racial narrative

You are probably wondering in what way this very innocent film is bubbling with racism. It turns out it’s because there aren’t enough black people in it and it “whitewashes” the struggles of black Americans:

The black characters in “A Christmas Story” are present but remain peripheral. They have no real voice or agency. They are shown in an perfectly inoffensive and neutral fashion. They are “present” in much the same way as the minor white characters who are not members of Ralphie’s family or his circle of friends. This is a perfect depiction of the nonwhite “other,” tailored to the conservative and superficial “color-blind” politics of the post-civil rights era.

This is an example of the “white racial frame” in action: People of color are present in a way that does not challenge the cultural and personal psychology of white racial innocence…

“My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic…”

​Apparently NR editors didn’t read this piece, or worse, they read it and approved it.

That high-pitched grinding sound you hear is William F. Buckley drilling his way out of the grave to keep his beloved National Review from being kidnapped by a hysterical mob of establishment cons.

Uday and Qusay Hussein infamously dropped screaming human beings into industrial plastic shredders to kill them. Either Mr. Williamson is ignorant of that fact, or he has secret information about Barron and Eric Trump and Ivanka that we are not privy to. If so, I would like to ask Mr. Williamson and his neglectful editors to provide the evidence to the world. I am looking forward to Mr. Williamson’s next NR column, which will no doubt show us the cellphone pics.

It may be time for mass hara-kiri at the National Review, for descending into blithering idiocy on Christmas 2016.

Mr. Williamson wrote this NR column to argue for a return to civility in politics… and, in his next breath, committed what Jonah Goldberg has called “argumentum ad Hitleram.”…

Obama And Leftist Mayor Sneaking Muslim “Refugees” Into Austin, Texas Behind Governor’s Back – Conservative Base
.

.
While the news media provides wall-to-wall coverage of President-elect Donald Trump and his family – most of it negative stories – and continue to portray a failed president as having eight-years of achievement, they are once again purposely ignoring the federal government breaking laws, regulations and agreements regarding immigration.

After Governor Greg Abbott of Texas clearly stated that Texas is stopping the resettlement of so-called Syrian asylum-seekers, the President Barack Obama and his minions went behind Gov. Abbott’s back secretly colluding with the Democratic mayor of Texas’ most liberal city.

Austin, Texas, Mayor Steve Adler offered illegal aliens continued sanctuary and the Syrian Muslims are being provided with a welcome mat, according to a top nonprofit, non-government organization (NGO) based in the nation’s capital…

Rogue Elector Who Tried To Stop Trump Now Faces Prosecution – Daily Info

Last week, the Electoral College met to pass their votes for the next President of the United States; Donald Trump was officially elected and Hillary Clinton became the first woman to lose a presidential election twice.

But before all this, rogue Colorado elector Michael Baca attempted to start a movement to encourage his fellow electors to refuse to vote for Trump, and thereby steal the presidency from him.

Well, it obviously didn’t work. However, Baca likely never thought his fruitless efforts would backfire so tremendously, as he is now facing prison time.

According to MRC Blog, though Baca repeatedly claimed his movement had nothing to do with Hillary Clinton, it has now been revealed that he was actually in contact with her campaign the entire time, exchanging numerous texts and emails with the Clinton camp.

Baca was caught emailing Clinton advisor Jake Sullivan back and forth, and texting Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri. “I know I will have done everything I could to stop Trump but I am just a guy at the end of the day,” Baca wrote. “Thank you so very much and I’ll trust whatever happens was the right decision.”

Politico explained the method behind Baca’s madness:

The strategy was simple, if virtually impossible to execute: persuade Democratic and Republican electors wary of Trump to unite behind a mainstream Republican alternative such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich or 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney. If they could persuade 37 of the 306 Republicans on the Electoral College to ditch Trump, the election would have been thrown to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives in January…

After Leftists Bullied Young Trump Inaugural Singer, Her Christmas Album Shot Up To Number One On The Charts – Truthfeed
.

Liberals can’t win, no matter what they do. Even when they bully young girls, it backfires epically.

Liberals relentlessly attacked young singer Jackie Evancho after she accepted an invitation to sing the National Anthem at Trump’s inauguration.

Since that time, Jackie’s Christmas album SHOT to #1!

From TMZ:

Jackie Evancho is defying what seems to be conventional entertainment wisdom – that singing at Donald Trump‘s inauguration is career-threatening – because she just shot to #1 on the charts.

We’re told since the America’s Got Talent runner-up has signed on to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” on January 20th, her weekly album sales quadrupled in digital downloads and in retailer as well…

Trump Will Be Able To Fill Over 100 Federal Court Positions Once He Takes Office – Daily Mail

Donald Trump will be able to fill more than 100 vacancies in the federal courts when he takes office next month.

Trump will walk into the White House as there are a total of 103 empty seats on courts, in addition to the lingering Supreme Court vacancy after the death of Antonin Scalia.

The triple-digit figure is staggeringly almost double the number President Barack Obama had to fill – 54 – when he replaced George W. Bush in the Oval Office.

Conservative leaders are already hoping Trump will pick people to further push their ideals on a number of key issues – such as gun control, women’s health and rights, immigration, and voter restriction, the Washington Post reports.

‘I’m optimistic he’ll come at this right out of the gate,’ Judicial Crisis Network chief counsel Carrie Severino said.

‘Every president can expect to make a huge impact. [Trump] is unique in having campaigned really hard on this issue – the significance of the courts, and of the Supreme Court in particular.’

Severino’s group has been staunchly against many of President Obama’s court appointments.

The Republicans refusal to confirm Obama’s choice to fill the crucial vacancy on the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, has been seen by Democrats as a deliberate ploy organized in the hope the GOP took back the White House.

Democrats point the finger at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Charles E. Grassley for the stalling…

CAIR LA Director Tweets Wish For Twice The Dead In Russian Plane Crash – Breitbart
.

Hussam Ayloush, the executive director of the Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which purports to speak for American Muslims, spent part of Christmas Day tweeting that he had hoped more people had died in the previous night’s Russian plane crash into the Black Sea.

He then backpedaled on his offensive comments.

Ayloush, whose Twitter bio lists him as a “Human rights and civil rights activist. Community organizer. CAIR-LA Exec Director. Son. Husband Father of 5,” tweeted Sunday morning, “I’m sad about the crashed Russian military jet. The TU-154 could have carried up to 180 military personnel instead of just 92!”

As Fox News reported about the crash, the 92 dead included military musicians and a choir headed to Syria to perform on Christmas…

Hillary’s Horribles – Derek Hunter

Yes, I know it’s Christmas, and if there’s one day where you should let politics go it’s today. But sometimes things happen that can’t go unremarked upon, no matter the day.

Such has been a series of events involving supporters of Hillary Clinton.

Yes, Clinton won the popular vote. Who cares? That was never, nor should it ever be, the measure that determines who is elected president. She knew it. Her supporters knew it. Her campaign knew it. They just chose not to campaign that way.

Call it arrogance or ignorance, but Hillary spent more time in California, a state she’d have won comfortably no matter what, than Wisconsin and Michigan in the final days of the election. She and her team made that choice, consciously. Just like she chose to call half of Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who, even worse, were “irredeemable.”

No one made her do that.

That became a rallying cry for Trump – and a way of life for many Clinton supporters.

There’s an old saying that goes, “If you want to know what Democrats are up to, just take a look at what they’re accusing Republicans of doing.” That’s exactly the case when it comes to those hardcore Clinton supporters who simply refuse to accept they lost; that people who have different opinions to theirs exist.

The fiery rhetoric coming from vehemently “progressive” Clinton supporters since the election has reached the point of instability. It seems as though some is aimed at inspiring some unhinged person to try to kill Donald Trump…

Kim Jong Un Bans Christmas, Makes North Korea Worship His Grandma – New York Post
.

.
Kim Jong Un is the Grinch who stole Christmas.

North Korea’s tubby tyrant wants the few Christians in the hermit state to spread cheer only to celebrate his grandma, Kim Jong-suk – not the birth of Jesus.

Jong-suk – who was born on Christmas Eve in 1919 – was an anti-Japanese guerrilla and Communist activist, wife of North Korea’s first dictator, Kim Il Sung, and former leader Kim Jong Il’s mother.

Many pay homage to the “Sacred Mother of the Revolution,” who died under mysterious circumstances in 1949, by visiting her tomb.

The daffy dictator is so obsessed with banning Christmas that he even flipped out in 2014 when he found out that South Korea planned to erect a huge Christmas tree along the border…

At Least 27 People Shot In Leftist-Controlled Chicago Over Christmas Weekend – Daily Mail

Chicago’s homicides have increased by more than 50 per cent since last year, as at least 27 people were shot over the Christmas weekend.

Seven of those individuals were fatally shot within the last 48 hours, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) reported.

Officer Jose Estrada, a spokesman with the CPD told the New York Times on Sunday that the total number of homicides this year was 745, a 56 per cent increase from 476 around the same time last year.

The weekend’s most recent shooting resulted in the death of an 18-year-old male who was shot multiple times in the neck and back while he was driving at 1.30am on Sunday on the city’s Southwest Side, NBC 5 Chicago reported.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No suspects are in custody for his murder.

Last year’s Christmas weekend saw 30 people shot and six of those died.

This year was the first time in nearly 20 years that more than 700 homicides had been recorded in the city, The Chicago Tribune reported this month.

Officer Estrada said the total number of shooting victims so far stood at 4,252, up 47 per cent from 2,884 at the same time in 2015.

The majority of the individuals shot were men under the age of 30.

Forty-two homicides have been recorded for December compared to 33 around the same time last year, the Tribune reported.

Another man was found shot dead around 12.49am in the backyard of a home of East 76th Street, according to police…

Sorry, But Our Fight Against Liberal Fascism Has Only Just Begun – Kurt Schlichter
.

.
I wish I could tell you that, having dodged the naggy bullet that was Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, we can now spend the next four years being left alone. But that’s not in the cards. Liberals won’t – because they can’t – pause to reflect on how they should stop being such insufferable jerks and live with us normals in peace and mutual respect. Instead, they are doubling down on their gambit for unrestrained power over every aspect of our lives, fueled by a hatred for Donald Trump that is, in reality, a hatred for us.

Remember, they really do hate us. Just ask them.

Just watch what they do. They will always side against us – even when a professional scammer stages a fake “hate crime” on an airplane. They will side with the hoaxer even though every single “Trump-inspired hate crime” – and almost all others – turns out to be a hoax. Every. Single. One

Facebook Threats Against Trump Land Crazed Leftist In Jail – Sun-Sentinel

A Broward man’s Facebook postings have landed him in jail after federal authorities said he threatened to kill or harm President-elect Donald Trump.

Kevin Keith Krohn, 59, was arrested Thursday at his Pembroke Pines home after law enforcement informed the U.S. Secret Service agents who protect Trump about the postings.

“I’m just glad Obama didn’t take all our gunz! I see a good use for one now,” Krohn wrote online above a picture of Trump that read, “He’s not my president / He’s an enemy of the state,” agents wrote in court records.

Krohn posted his remarks in a thread of comments related to Trump’s holiday season stay at his Palm Beach home, according to court records.

Agents said Krohn posted another comment that read: “The EXPEDITER of Trump! He will never last long!” above a picture of a man in camouflage holding a scoped sniper rifle.

When another Facebook user asked what he meant, agents said Krohn responded: “Keep yer eyes open!”

Agents said they were able to track Krohn to his home in Pembroke Pines and he was arrested there on Thursday evening. He could face a federal charge of threatening to take the life of the president-elect or inflect bodily harm. The offense carries a maximum punishment of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

“Krohn became confrontational when asked if he made the statements threatening the PEOTUS [President-elect of the United States]… Krohn declared any statements he made were an expression of his First Amendment rights,” agents wrote in court records…

CNN Ratings Hit All-Time Record Low – Your News Wire
.

.
CNN, the network so thoroughly exposed by WikiLeaks as a propaganda mouthpiece of the establishment, have recorded their lowest ratings since records began. For the week ending December 18, CNN ranked a lowly number 18 for total viewers per day for ad supported cable networks.

CNN was beat out by channels such as The Cartoon Network and Home And Garden TV Network. Viewers obviously decided The Cartoon Network is closer to reality than what CNN pumps out. Perhaps most embarrassingly, The Food Network had more daily viewers than CNN.

How the mighty have fallen. For primetime viewers CNN did not even rank in the top 25.

CNN is falling apart, which is nice to see given they are an establishment run propaganda channel exposed by their former staff as accepting cash to play what amount to informercials for foreign dictators…

Landlord Caught On Camera Having Sex In Tenant’s Bed Is Illegal Alien – American Mirror

A Colorado landlord who was busted on camera having sex in a tenant’s bed did not show up for his Thursday court appearance because the illegal immigrant was in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

KKTV reports:

Carlos Quijada was scheduled to be in court Thursday, but didn’t show up because he’s still in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. An El Paso County judge still signed a warrant for his arrest for not appearing. ICE didn’t notify the courts that they had Quijada in custody.

Quijada faces felony trespassing charges after he was recorded in late November having sex on the bed Logan Pierce shares with his wife at Skyway Condominiums in Colorado Springs.

“I got a notification from one of the cameras on lunch the other day that it detected noise and that was strange because both of us work all day, every day,” Pierce told the news site.

“I opened up the camera and kind of had to like quit the program and… restart it again because I really didn’t believe what I saw,” he said.

The video allegedly show Quijada have sex with a woman on his bed, then use his wife’s wedding dress to clean up his mess.

“I guess the first thing that went through my mind was like complete and utter disbelief,” said Pierce, who immediately called his wife and police about the incident.

“I said, ‘Honey, I think we need to move, like, immediately,’” he said.

Pierce said his wife, Mikaela Digiulio, was particularly offended that Quijada used her wedding dress like an old rag…
