    Timothy,

    Sanctuary cities like San Francisco, Chicago, and Seattle have spent decades breaking our country’s immigration laws -- and getting away with it.

    Not anymore! Not on my watch.

    But if we want to win this fight, I need you to join the millions of American citizens calling for an immediate end to sanctuary cities.

    Please sign our Official Petition to Defund Sanctuary Cities.

    [​IMG]

    Where is the sanctuary for the American citizens who have been the victims of criminal acts by illegal immigrants?

    Where is the sanctuary for the Americans citizens who haven’t seen their wages rise in years because of massive illegal immigration?

    You -- and millions of Americans like you -- voted to finally put the American citizens FIRST. But we can’t do that until we end sanctuary cities that are an assault on the rule of law.

    Now I need you to step up and show your support.

    Sign your name. >>

    Thank you,

    [​IMG]
    Donald J. Trump
    President of the United States

    How Many Assault Victims Has Congress Paid Off?

    "Please don't talk. Just take the money!!" - Congress
    A watchdog group is demanding a list of lawmakers who may have made use of a multi-million dollar taxpayer “slush fund” (“hush-fund”) that has been used to pay off and silence victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault on Capitol Hill.

    The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a watchdog that is based in Washington, D.C.-, said that the settlement list from the Office of Compliance (OOC), which totals around $17 million in payments over the last 20 years, should be released for transparency purposes and to hold the public officials accountable for their actions.

    “Sadly, it has just come to light that for years the government spent millions in taxpayer dollars to try and quietly make sexual misconduct by lawmakers go away. That is an egregious affront to all the victims, as well as taxpayers,” said Kendra Arnold, the executive director of FACT. “We don’t need speeches and public posturing—we need the internal policy to change and immediate transparency. Congressional leaders need to name names and each day that goes by without action is another day more innocent people are put at risk of becoming victims of predatory behavior in the workplace.”

    Arnold further said that the Congress’s exemption from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is even more of an important reason that the settlement list should be released to the public. The $17 million taxpayer-funded settlement fund, which is also referred to as a “slush fund” by its critics, has garnered wide attention following a string of sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood, the media, and in Congress.

    Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill are calling for an end to the fund, which also covers up workplace settlements on a range of issues that may stem beyond sexual harassment complaints and includes the likes of discrimination as well.

    Representative Jackie Speier, one such critic of the fund and a longtime proponent of reforming the harassment policies on Capitol Hill, and said that it is now up to Congress to implement real reforms.

    “Make no mistake that the fault of the current complaint process lies within the Congress, which authored and passed this deeply flawed legislation that had established the Office of Compliance and its burdensome complaint process,” Speier told a news source. “It is our responsibility to fix this law and do better for our employees.”

    Speier has said that she knows of one such Democrat and one Republican who are currently in Congress and linked to the sexual harassment allegations. The California lawmaker, who has referred to the Office of Compliance as an “enabler” of such shameful conduct, has introduced a bill to reform the office. A number of politicians from both the political parties have joined Speier in pushing for this new reform.

    Sexual misconduct settlements do not always come out of the “slush fund.”

    Representative John Conyers, who has now been accused of sexual misconduct by at least three former staffers, had settled with one woman from the funds allocated to his congressional office. The settlement is not included in the $17 million fund.

    Conyers, who is a ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, has since stepped down from that position as an ethics probe into the longtime lawmaker continues to progress further.

    Senator Al Franken has also been accused by four women of sexual harassment and has since issued a number of apologies. Franken has said that he is “embarrassed and ashamed” of these accusations.

    Tuesday, engineers fired up the thrusters and waited eagerly to find out whether the plan was successful. They got their answer 19 hours and 35 minutes later, the time it took for the results to reach Earth: The set of four thrusters worked perfectly. The spacecraft turned and the mood at NASA shifted to jubilation.
    "The Voyager team got more excited each time with each milestone in the thruster test. The mood was one of relief, joy and incredulity after witnessing these well-rested thrusters pick up the baton as if no time had passed at all," said Todd Barber, a propulsion engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
    "With these thrusters that are still functional after 37 years without use, we will be able to extend the life of the Voyager 1 spacecraft by two to three years," said Suzanne Dodd, project manager for Voyager at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory

    Can you imagine waiting 20 hours for an answer, please turn my way...

    In answer to your post,

    Many if these women used the sex to get the job and many a man has let his little head do the thinking fir his big head,

    I guess that is why we save most of our money after we turn 50.:D

    Michelle Obamas empty chair has never been filled where she worked in Chicago, Barack got into office exposing another couples sex fetish’s.

    2017 War On Christmas Begins

    Why do Liberals fear our faith so much?



    The Washington, D.C. transit system – the Metro- recently rejected a Christmas ad for being too “Christian.”



    The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., is suing the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority over its restrictive advertising guidelines, which the Catholic Church sees as a huge infringement on its right to exercise free speech. The ad had featured silhouettes of shepherds en-route to visit the infant Christ with the message that said “Find the Perfect Gift,” and was going to be placed on the exterior of city buses. Archdiocese spokesman Ed McFadden had said the ad was designed to remind people that Christmas — the annual celebration of Christ’s birth—is a religious holiday.



    “Under WMATA’s guidelines, if the ads are about packages, boxes, or bags—if Christmas comes from a store — then it seems WMATA approves. But if Christmas means a little bit more, WMATA plays Grinch,” McFadden had stated in a statement.



    The suit is the latest controversy for the embattled transit agency, which is in charge of operating the second busiest subway system in the country. In 2016, the Federal Transit Administration had threatened to shutter its rail lines if the agency did not take “urgent action” to address safety issues. The threat had spurred a year-long update to the system that had cost a huge $133 million and had also disrupted commutes through 2016 and parts of 2017. An agency spokesman had said in a statement that the rejection is in line with its advertising guidelines, which apply to all its entities no matter what their religion.



    “WMATA has changed its advertising policy to prohibit issue-oriented advertising, including political, religious and advocacy advertising,” an agency spokeswoman had said. “The ad in question was declined because it is prohibited by WMATA’s current advertising guidelines.”



    The Archdiocese attorney Paul Clement of Kirkland & Ellis LLP had said that the system’s prohibition on advertising from religious entities represented a huge discriminatory litmus test. He said that the government should not allow for robust speeches on its advertising platforms while at the same time denying access to certain entities over their messaging. The suit seeks injunctive relief for the archdiocese to advertise in the system and challenges WMATA to revise its guidelines.



    “WMATA’s rejection of the Archdiocese’s speech amounts to a violation of the First Amendment, plain and simple,” Clement said in a statement. “We are bringing this complaint to vindicate the basic principle that the government may not allow a wide variety of speech in a forum and then turn around and deny the Archdiocese access because of the religious nature of its speech.”



    “Those opposed to running issues ads that cause strong reactions (such as religious extremism, right to life and political advertising) also find fewer issues acceptable than those that favor running such ads,” WMATA said in a report.



    The agency claims that its prohibition on religious speech was done in an attempt to keep from “discrimination.”

    Social Media Push Leads To Deportation Waiver For Illegal

    The mob "justice" of liberal social media is no Justice at all.
    Thanks to a large social media push, an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh has been granted an immigration waiver from federal authorities.

    Riaz Talukder, age 50, has been granted a temporary waiver after a coordinated social media campaign spread about his “plight.” Talukder, who has been living in the US since he was a minor – afoul of the law – is pleading to stay in the country now that it was discovered that his wife has thyroid cancer.

    He’ll now be able to stay in the U.S. for another six months before having to run inwith the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) again, according to a press release about the matter. This will give the family a little more time to file court motions to overturn or further delay their deportation order.

    Talukder, who does not have any criminal record and is the father of two U.S. citizen sons, has been routinely reporting to the agency for some time. But during a check-in last month, he was told to return to a New York City ICE facility in November with a one-way ticket to Bangladesh.

    The cab driver said that he felt extremely worried about his family, particularly his wife, who is now recovering from cancer treatment and will be undergoing another surgery in December.

    After receiving the news of Talukder’s situation, groups like the nonprofit DRUM – Desis Rising Up & Moving and the Jackson Heights Immigrant Solidarity Network, kicked off an aggressive, and well-coordinated social media campaign, and collected thousands of signatures on a United We Dream petition that was urging the Department of Homeland Security to let Talukder stay. And during last week, attorney Edward Cuccia had filed a motion to reopen Talukder’s previous asylum case, which would allow him to stay on humanitarian grounds.

    Talukder’s immigration struggles began years ago. At one point, he was even detained, two years after a work authorization had expired. Immigration officials had raided his home and the cab driver was sent to the Elizabeth Detention Center in New Jersey, the United We Dream petition had explained.

    Talukder ended up being released once again, with the instructions to check in with ICE every year. And under the Obama administration, he was also treated as a low priority for deportation, especially since he did not have any criminal record. However, in the beginning of the year and under the Trump administration, Talukder was ordered to check in more frequently and eventually was told to report to ICE every month until he was threatened with deportation.

    “We had a great victory today, but Riaz is just one of millions of people in this country living under the constant threat of deportation,” Lucy Herschel of the Jackson Heights Immigrant Solidarity Network had said during Monday’s press conference. “These are our family and friends, our neighbors, our co-workers. We need to build a mass movement to defend our [illegal immigrant] communities from this attack.”

    I find it amazing that in the last five days I have read / listened to more than a dozen retractions of inaccurate / false statements. ALL of which included the wording 'xxx (and sometimes xxxxx) News said the report “had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process'. One would think that with ALL of the college degrees amassed by the so called news media they could at leat not plagiarize themselves.

    Barr: Fake Polls Driving Regulatory Changes

    Bob Barr

    Would you trust this guy to write your country's regulations?
    The “internet poll” has become a familiar device with which to solicit reader feedback and drive engagement on topics from sports and entertainment to law and politics. But, with obvious flaws in polling methodology (e.g., random sampling, representative samples), not to mention vulnerability to fraud, the results of such polls carry little if any scientific value. They are a marketing tool only; except, it seems, when it comes to formulating federal regulations.

    Providing a public comment period before federal regulations can be finalized is a legal and long-standing component of federal rulemaking. Typically the window for public comments is 30 to 60 days; during which time anyone – from Joe Six-Pack to high-paid industry consultants – can submit commentary used in considering the adoption of a proposed rule.

    Federal regulatory agencies increasingly prefer that public comments be submitted digitally, “so that [people’s] input on a proposed rule or other document is more easily available to the public” and easier to organize for agency review. Therein lies the problem.

    Electronic commentary makes it extremely easy to “stuff the ballot box” with canned commentary from armies of online activists with the click of a mouse; or even millions of computer “bots” forging the identities of real people – dead or alive. In either case, it is becoming difficult (if not impossible) to seriously consider such feedback, particularly as the Federal Communications Commission seeks to repeal Obama-era regulations involving access to the internet.

    The underlying problem is that the use of modern technology in this way has reduced public input on regulatory rule-making to little more than “digital shouting matches” between organizations on one side supporting a particular proposed rule change, and those on the other side opposing the change.

    According to reports from a third-party company tapped to process and catalog public commentary submitted electronically to the FCC regarding its proposal to reverse the so-called “Open Internet Order” (more commonly known as “net neutrality”), pushed by the Obama administration, a troubling pattern has emerged in which massive surges of comments (in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions) are received electronically by the agency in a matter of days.

    In this case, the comments, while often appearing unique and cogent on the surface, were subsequently determined to have been created by artificial bots using a natural language generator. Worse still, it appears some of these bots borrowed the identities of real people in order to submit comments to the Federal Register; a violation of state law the New York Attorney General now is investigating.

    Overall, Wired.com reports that “over a third of the nearly 22 million comments that poured into the [FCC] . . . included one of seven identical messages,” and “more than half were associated with duplicate or temporary emails.” And, while bot activity is seen heavily in responses supporting FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who is leading the drive to repeal net neutrality, both sides appear to be impacted; undermining the credibility of all comments.

    There is also the issue of form-letter commentary, popular among activist organizations that send a call-to-arms to their many members, each of who can within a few seconds submit commentary for, or against, an issue. Even though the responses come from real people, and reflect a real sentiment, it is hard to consider such a lazy way to flood commentary requests genuine in the spirit of public comment; especially when the scheme is followed quickly by gloating fundraising appeals.

    To his credit, Chairman Pai indicated the volume of responses is less important to the rulemaking process for reversing the net neutrality rule than the quality of the comments; offering at least some relief from the optics-obsessed previous administration in which this might have been spun a different way to support another government power grab.

    However, the ease with which these bots and activist organizations can flood public commentary, and the sophistication with which bots can mimic human communication, raises difficult questions about the effectiveness of digital comment submissions; not to mention the threat it poses to rulemaking by weaker-willed agencies that are more susceptible to perceived public pressure. More practically as well, are the additional taxpayer-financed resources it takes to identify, sort, and catalog millions of public comments.

    Regardless of whether these digital shenanigans result in actual fraud prosecutions by state or federal authorities, the damage they are causing to an important element of participatory democracy is very real and makes it far easier than it should be for regulatory officials to simply ignore the public altogether and do as they please.

    Senate To Investigate Scope Of FBI’s Political Bias

    "What the hell were you FBI guys thinking?"



    The Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley, is now using the sweeping investigative power he has to collect evidence from the FBI of political bias within the Justice Department.

    The Iowa Republican is pressing the FBI for every and all documents related to the activities of FBI agent Peter Strzok following the reports that he had demonstrated bias against President Trump while playing key roles in the investigations into the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and in the special counsel probe into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.

    “The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok’s work for the special counsel and in the FBI’s investigation of [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn,” Grassley wrote in his letter to the FBI Director Christopher Wray.

    “Strzok’s behavior and involvement in these two politically sensitive cases raise new concerns of inappropriate political influence in the work of the FBI,” Grassley had added.

    Grassley’s office on Wednesday said that the FBI has failed to comply with the previous, broader Judiciary Committee requests that had called for records relating to the communications of Stzrok and others.

    The House Intelligence Committee has complained about similar FBI stonewalling techniques regarding the documents about Stzrok and related information about the former FBI Director, James Comey’s controversial statement last year that had announced that the agency had decided not to bring any criminal charges against Clinton in the email investigations.

    Over the weekend, Representative Devin Nunes, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, has directed his staff to write up the legislation that would hold the FBI in the contempt of Congress. Nunes cited media reports that the Special Counsel Robert Mueller had removed Strzok from his investigative team after discovering that he and the FBI lawyer Lisa Page, his alleged mistress, had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Trump and supporting Hillary Clinton.

    Grassley, in his letter to Wray, further said “it appears” that Mueller “may have learned this information from the Office of [Justice Department’s] Inspector General’s ongoing review of the handling of controversial pre-election activities of the Justice Department and FBI related to the campaign.”

    Strzok, a top FBI official who had led the agency’s counterintelligence division, was reassigned to work in the FBI’s human resources department after his removal from Mueller’s special counsel team.

    The texts between Strzok and Page had occurred while both were working on Clinton’s investigations. Grassley, citing news reports, said Strzok “appears to have been responsible for removing language suggesting legal jeopardy for Clinton” in Comey’s conclusion of that investigation.

    Strzok also was one of the two agents who would go on to interview Flynn during the Russia probe.

    Grassley had said in October he wrote a letter to Strzok requesting “voluntary cooperation and a private transcribed interview with the committee,” but has received no replies.

    Grassley has also requested in his letter to Wray to view all the text messages in question, as well as any additional communications that may contain favorable or unfavorable statements about Trump or Hillary Clinton and any communications that may be involving Strzok regarding decisions about closing the Clinton investigation or opening up the investigation into potential collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government.

    Grassley gave the FBI until December 11th to hand over the documents related to Strzok.

    When are we going to finish with Hillary,

    Her and Billy are still milking the taxpayers, along with Obama.

    Conyers had said he was resigning or retiring or if he had declared himself the shah of Iran. About the only way for a member of Congress to lose his or her pension is to be convicted of certain felonies, generally relating to public corruption. Conyers, 88, is in line for a $125,000 annual pension (80 percent of the current pay for a sitting congressman.

    In an interesting wrinkle, Conyers wife, Monica, who actually was convicted of corruption charges and imprisoned for more than two years for taking bribes as a Detroit councilwoman, will be eligible to continue receiving after his death. She’s just 52, so that could be decades of payouts indexed to current congressional pay.

    They will also continue to be eligible to participate in the federal health insurance program.

    Let’s not forget about his son, and the list goes on..:confused:

    what a disgrace.

    the statutes should be that once found guilty of corruption, that they lose future benefit rights, like her husband's retirement gravy trail.....

    Work Begins On Sentencing Guidelines For Synthetic Drugs

    If it can kill you in 1 dose - it's not a "victimless crime"
    A group of chemists, law enforcement officers, and medical experts at the United States Sentencing Commission this past Tuesday to provide testimony on the emerging health threats posed by synthetic drugs.

    The meeting, focused on the fentanyl and so-called synthetic cannabinoids, was the third of this kind of hearings that the Sentencing Commission has held on the topic of synthetic drugs. The Commission is responsible for setting proper advisory guidelines for sentencing in the federal criminal justice system; 46 percent of the federal inmates are incarcerated for their drug offenses, the most common reason for incarceration.

    Synthetic drugs, which usually are the work of illicit chemists, are distinguished from the drugs like heroin and marijuana and are produced by more traditional farming approaches.

    “The concept of synthetic is if it’s man-made, versus something that is homegrown,” Dr. Roger Mitchell, the chief medical examiner of the District of Columbia, told. “So heroin is not necessarily synthetic because it’s made out of poppy, it’s manufactured out of a natural construct. Marijuana isn’t synthetic.”

    Importantly, synthetic drugs allow the drug traffickers to avoid the blanket bans on certain kinds of drugs otherwise scheduled under the Controlled Substances Act by making several minor changes to the chemical structure of the drug that they want to sell.

    “Currently, traffickers are again exploiting available legitimate research information on structure activity relationships, making small changes to the chemical structure of fentanyl and distributing these fentanyl analogues in the illicit drug market,” explained Dr. Michael van Linn, a drug scientist with the DEA.

    The opioid fentanyl — a substance that is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine — and its analogues make up the deadliest synthetic drugs, responsible for more than 20,000 deaths in 2016.

    Chemists speaking to the Sentencing Commission further explained the proliferation of fentanyl analogues, designed to dodge the current regulations. Those analogues include drugs like carfentanyl, used as an elephant tranquilizer, just 50 micrograms of which may constitute a lethal dose, and ocfentanyl, which is 6,300 times stronger than regular morphine.

    Last month, the DEA took action to fight the spread of fentanyl analogues, pre-emptively scheduling all such drugs under the Controlled Substances Act and easing the burden that is faced by the federal prosecutors.

    Synthetic drugs are not new, but they have taken off in very recent years. Data that was released on Tuesday by the Customs and Border Protection agency further highlighted the rise of synthetic drugs in transnational drug trafficking.

    As much was reflected in the testimony of many of the experts. Major Juan Colon of the New Jersey State Police also explained that the use of Naloxone a.k.a. Narcan, a drug that is used to reverse the opioid overdoses had risen from 5,000 instances in 2014 to over 12,000 in 2017, largely thanks to fentanyl. Robert Perez, who is representing the CBP, confirmed that fentanyl was indeed the most commonly seized drug in 2017.

    So let’s legalize marijuana, let the drug dealers out of the Joint, encourage more single faimilies, and blame others, and do not forget to vote Democratic and support the church,

    With excess children we can win elections, and keep the general public dependent on Drugs, Welfare, and anything else we can feed them,,

    If you have a problem Look in the mirror, and never believe Fake News,

    Attitude and Ability, will make you succeed, the Government us the problem not the solution,

    The system is crooked,,

    It is amazing the FBI could not get Hillary’s emails or even her server, :mad:

    She really is a smart woman, :rolleyes:


    Washington (CNN)Prosecutors in the Russia probe have obtained hundreds of thousands of documents and gotten a host of information from laptops and phones in the ongoing investigation into former Trump campaign advisers Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

    So far, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators have collected 400,000 documents including financial records, corporate records and emails involving the defendants.

    And Hillary remain an illusion in the FBIs eyes,,:D
