Johnny Manziel Signs With AAF, Will Join The Memphis Express – New York Post
.

.
Johnny Manziel is playing in a new football league. No, it’s not the NFL.

Manziel signed with the Alliance of American Football on Saturday night and will join the Memphis Express. The quarterback’s rights belonged to San Antonio of the spring league, but that team declined to sign him and Manziel then was free to join any of the other seven clubs. He was awarded through the AAF’s waiver system to the Express, who have a league-worst 1-5 record.

“We are pleased to welcome Johnny Manziel to Alliance of American Football, which we’ve always described as a league of opportunity for talented players to launch or revitalize their pro football careers,” Alliance co-founder Bill Polian said in a statement…

Man Cleaning Garage Finds Burglar Crushed By Fallen 900-Pound Floor Safe, Cops Say – Centre Daily Times

When Indiana homeowner George Hollingsworth noticed some damage Tuesday to the door frame on his garage, he suspected a break-in, the Marion Police Department wrote in a statement.

On Wednesday, Hollingsworth began cleaning out his cluttered garage to determine if anything had been stolen, police reported. That’s when he found the body of a suspected burglar crushed beneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had apparently toppled onto the stranger, police wrote.

“My mind couldn’t comprehend it,” Hollingsworth said, WXIN reported. “This can’t be real. It’s like some strange tale.”

Police were called to the scene at 8:20 p.m., officers wrote.

Police wrote in their statement that the safe, which had been held up by a floor jack, appeared to have fallen over onto the intruder as he rummaged through the tightly packed garage…

Reuters Journalist Withheld Damaging Info About Beto O’Rourke Until After Senate Race – Daily Caller

Reuters bragged Friday about its scoop that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was once involved in a notorious hacker group, but revealed in the process that one of its reporters willingly sat on the story until after O’Rourke lost his Texas Senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz.

Reuters’ Joseph Menn reported exclusively Friday morning that O’Rourke, a former member of Congress and the latest Democrat to join the 2020 presidential race, had a secret membership in an infamous hacking group.

The group, known as the Cult of the Dead Cow (CDC), is the oldest and perhaps most influential collection of hackers in the U.S…

Secretary Of State Pompeo Announces Ban On Fascist International Criminal Court Officials Probing U.S. Soldiers For War Crimes – Zero Hedge

The U.S. has threatened to revoke visas for members of the International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague should they so much as investigate any criminal actions of American military personnel.

The United States has never been a member of the ICC and considers it without authority over matters related to Americans or allies conducting joint operations.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a scathing rebuke Friday following ICC statements that it would look into possible US war crimes in Afghanistan, and as pressures mount for the court to bring cases against Israel for human rights crimes against Palestinians.

“We are determined to protect the American and allied military and civilian personnel from living in fear of unjust prosecution for actions taken to defend our great nation,” Pompeo said Friday.

Pompeo went so far as to specifically address ICC members and employees…

Comedy Gold: Australian Senator Slaps Teen For Cracking An Egg On The Back Of His Head During Live Interview – Daily Caller

Australian Senator Fraser Anning responded to having an egg cracked against the back of his head by turning around and slapping the perpetrator during a live television interview.

The Queensland senator, who previously called for a ban on Muslim immigration and is currently under fire for blaming New Zealand’s lax immigration policies for recent mosque shootings, was in Melbourne giving an interview to reporters on Friday when a young man started recording, then smashed an egg into the back of his head.

Anning quickly turned around and slapped the individual, who reportedly turned out to be a 17-year-old. Then he did it again before being separated from the altercation by a staffer. The unnamed teen was subsequently arrested by Victoria police, then reportedly released without charges…

French Protesters Set Fires, Smash Shops In Paris Riots – Associated Press

French yellow vest protesters set life-threatening fires, smashed up luxury stores and clashed with police Saturday in the 18th straight weekend of demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron. Large plumes of smoke rose above the rioting on Paris’ landmark Champs-Elysees avenue, and a mother and her child were just barely saved from a building blaze.

The resurgent violence came as protesters are seeking to breathe new life into a movement that seemed to be fizzling, and get attention from French leaders and media whom they see as underplaying their economic justice cause and favoring the elite.

Paris police appeared to be caught off guard by the speed and severity of the unrest. French police tried to contain the demonstrators with repeated volleys of tear gas and water cannon, with limited success.

Cobblestones flew in the air and smoke from fires set by protesters mingled with clouds of tear gas sprayed by police, as tensions continued for hours along the Champs-Elysees…

Secretary Of State Pompeo Heads To Israel Ahead Of Contested Election – Washington Free Beacon

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to head to Israel next week ahead of a contested Israeli election that is seen as no guarantee for longtime Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The timing of Pompeo’s trip has generated much speculation about whether he is throwing the Trump administration’s support behind Netanyahu as he is locked in the race of his political career, an election being followed closely across the Middle East as it could reshape the Jewish state’s government at a critical juncture in the United States’s regional fight to thwart Iran and its terrorist proxies.

Socialist Utopia Update: Desperate Venezuelans Swarm Sewage Drains In Search Of Water – Reuters

As Venezuela’s five-day power blackout left homes without water, Lilibeth Tejedor found herself looking for it on Monday in the last place she would have imagined – a drain pipe feeding into a river carrying sewage through the capital, Caracas.

Tejedor, 28, joined dozens of people who had flocked to the Guaire river, which snakes along the bottom of a sharp ravine alongside Caracas’ main highway, to fill up a four-gallon (15 liter) plastic container.

Unlike the fetid liquid flowing through the Guaire river, the water emerging from the pipe was at least clear. Those who gathered to collect it said the water had been released by local authorities from reservoirs.

They added, however, that it was being carried through unsanitary pipes and should only be used to flush toilets or scrub floors. “I’ve never even seen this before. It’s horrible, horrible,” said Tejedor, preparing to carry the container on a small hand cart back to her home in the neighborhood of San Agustin…

‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’: Turns Out Drunk-Driving Fake Hispanic Beto O’Rourke Used To Write Really Bad Poetry – Daily Caller

Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry.

Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.”

“I need a butt-shine,” the poem begins… and it really all just goes downhill from there:

All-Female Court Panel Overturns Rape Conviction Because Woman Is Too Ugly To Be Credible Victim – Daily Wire

Three female judges in an appeals court in Italy overturned a 2015 rape conviction in part because the victim in question was deemed too ugly to have been raped. The alleged victim, then 20 years old, was not found to be a credible rape victim because she was too unattractive and “masculine,” according to the three female judges.

The conviction was overturned by an all-female panel in 2017 despite medics reportedly claiming the woman’s injuries were consistent with rape.

The details concerning the reasoning behind the overturned conviction only became public earlier this month, however, according to The Daily Mail. “The Court of Cassation said Wednesday its own reasons for ordering the retrial will be issued next month,” noted the outlet.

“It’s a sentence that has shocked us, I was astonished when reading the motivation,” the woman’s lawyer, Cinzia Molinaro, told CNN…

Thousands Of Public School Educators Celebrate “Black Lives Matter At School Week” – Frontpage

During the week of February 4-8, thousands of educators in public school districts across the nation celebrated “Black Lives Matter at School Week” with the students under their charge.

Organized by a radical coalition of teachers, parents, and community organizers and promoted by EdJustice.org, a far-left group within the National Education Association (NEA), the week is endorsed by teachers unions in urban areas including Washington, DC, Chicago, Milwaukee and Seattle.

This week of special instruction and activities is billed as a complement to “Black History Month” which is recognized in February. But in reality the Black Lives Matter at School week has a much more insidious purpose – to indoctrinate students in radical leftist concepts including “restorative justice,” “transgender and queer affirming,” and “collective value.”

The initiative is inspired by the national Black Lives Matter movement which characterizes America as awash in racism and bigotry and denigrates law enforcement as racist…

DOJ And Hillary’s Lawyers Struck Secret Deal To Block FBI Access To Clinton Foundation Emails: Strzok – Fox News

The Justice Department “negotiated” an agreement with Hillary Clinton’s legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok testified during a closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last summer, according to a newly released transcript.

Republicans late last year renewed their efforts to probe the Clinton Foundation, after tax documents showed a plunge in its incoming donations after Clinton’s 2016 presidential election. The numbers fueled longstanding allegations of possible “pay-to-play” transactions at the organization, amid a Justice Department probe covering foundation issues.

Under questioning from Judiciary Committee General Counsel Zachary Somers, Strzok acknowledged that Clinton’s private personal email servers contained a mixture of emails related to the Clinton Foundation, her work as secretary of state and other matters.

“Were you given access to [Clinton Foundation-related] emails as part of the investigation?” Somers asked…

Godless Commie Imbecile Ocasio-Cortez Mocks ‘Thoughts And Prayers’ After New Zealand Mosque Shooting, Says It’s An ‘NRA Phrase’ – National Review

Four people have been arrested, and one charged with murder, in connection with mass shootings that took place at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch during mid-day prayer on Friday.

The first attack, at the Linwood Mosque, resulted in seven dead and ended when an armed congregant pursued the gunmen and fired on them. A second shooting at the Al Noor mosque claimed 41 lives…

Chinese Premier Vows No Massive Stimulus As Beijing Launches Massive Stimulus – Zero Hedge

When it comes to China, the past decade revealed two things beyond a shadow of a doubt: i) all of the country’s economic data is utterly meaningless as it is entirely fabricated (in this measure it is not much different from other developed nations), goalseeked to fit a specific political narrative, and ii) Beijing has an annoying Trotskyite habit of doing precisely what it vows not to do or accuses others of doing.

A good example of the latter was again observed last night, when Premier Li Keqiang said that China will stick to its current targeted economic support strategy and resist the temptation to engage in large-scale stimulus like quantitative easing or a massive expansion in public spending.

“We certainly need to take strong measures to face the downward pressure,” Li told a news conference Friday at the close of the annual National People’s Congress session in Beijing.

“An indiscriminate approach may work in the short run but may lead to future problems. Thus it’s not a viable option. Our choice is to energize market players.”…

Brexit Update: MPs Vote 412 To 202 In Favor Of Extending Article 50 – CNBC

U.K. lawmakers voted in favor of seeking a delayed departure from the EU for at least three months, marking another step in a political crisis that has ripped through the heart of Westminster.

Members of Parliament (MPs) voted 412 to 202 for an extension of Article 50 – which sets out the EU departure process – beyond its current March 29 deadline. The vote Thursday evening was nonbinding, however, and the EU will have to agree to a delay. Brussels has already said Britain needs to justify requesting such an extension.

The vote completes a dramatic trilogy of events this week which have added yet more confusion into the whole Brexit process.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal suffered a second humiliating defeat as it was voted down by a majority of 149 votes. Then on Wednesday, U.K. lawmakers rejected the idea of leaving the bloc without a withdrawal agreement in place…

Gambino Crime Family Boss Frank Cali Gunned Down Outside Staten Island Home – Fox News

New York police are hunting the hitman who pumped at least six bullets into Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali before making sure the 53-year-old Gambino mob boss was dead by running over him with a blue pickup truck as the assassin fled, officials and witnesses said.

No name or description of the killer was provided by police and authorities have yet to say if Cali’s death is the result of an intra-mafia squabble or if the crime family leader was whacked by a rogue gunman.

Cali was shot several times outside his house in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m., the New York Post reported. His family sat helplessly inside the home as Cali was murdered. He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North and pronounced dead.

Appeals Court Upholds Ohio Law To Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Mills – The Hill

A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Ohio is able to defund Planned Parenthood clinics because they perform abortions.

Eleven judges on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that an Ohio law prohibiting state health department funding from going to any provider who offers “non-therapeutic abortions” does not violate the Constitution, “because the affiliates do not have a due process right to perform abortions.”

The Federal Reserve: A Failure Of The Rule Of Law – Alexander W. Salter

“Money is power.” We’ve all heard this aphorism many times before. Too often it’s a lazy shorthand dismissal of the finding of mainstream economics, which show that the pursuit and possession of money often entails innocuous or even beneficial consequences for society.

Dr. Johnson was right after all: “There are few ways in which a man can be more innocently employed than in getting money.” But there are some contexts in which the saying is apt. An obvious case is the Federal Reserve.

The Fed has a monopoly on the creation of base money, the fundamental asset underlying the banking and financial system. And over decades, with each instance of financial turbulence, the Fed has become less constrained in how, when, and why it creates base money.

Since the Great Recession, the Fed has been able to bestow purchasing power, liquidity, and solvency on just about any financial organization it pleases. If that isn’t power, there’s no such thing…

Woman Has Anaphylactic Reaction To Semen In First Reported Case Of Its Kind – Science Alert

Sex is supposed to be fun. Throwing up and breaking out into hives after having sex with your partner is decidedly not fun, but that’s what recently happened to a 31-year-old woman in Spain. By the time she showed up at the emergency room of the General University Hospital of Alicante, she was vomiting profusely, had shortness of breath, and her entire body was covered in hives.

The doctors diagnosed her with a moderate anaphylactic reaction, and tried to figure out what had caused it.

Their only clue: the patient’s reaction had started after having unprotected sex with her male partner, which involved “oral ejaculation” according to the case report.

Study: Migrants Using Nearly Two Times The Welfare Of Native-Born Americans – Breitbart

Households headed by foreign noncitizens living in the United States, including legal and illegal aliens, use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born Americans, research finds.

In recently released research by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), analysts discovered that about 63 percent of noncitizen households, those who live legally and illegally in the U.S., use some form of public welfare while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare.

Likewise, roughly 50 percent of naturalized citizens – those who legally immigrated to the country and became citizens – use taxpayer-funded welfare, as well as about 55 percent of all households headed by legal immigrants, those who are naturalized citizens and those who are not yet citizens.

Noncitizen households are more than twice as likely to use food welfare programs and Medicaid when compared to native-born American households. Only about 21 percent of native-born American households use food welfare programs and 23 percent use Medicaid…

Ocasio-Cortez Blames Pipeline That Hasn’t Been Built Yet For An Oil Spill – Daily Caller

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed the Keystone XL pipeline for leaking about 5,000 barrels of oil in rural South Dakota about two years ago. There’s just one problem: The Keystone XL pipeline has not been built yet.

During a House hearing Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that “Keystone XL, in particular, had one leak that leaked 210,000 gallons across South Dakota” while she questioned Wells Fargo president and CEO Timothy Sloan.

Ocasio-Cortez probably confused the Keystone XL pipeline with the Keystone pipeline, which has been operating since 2010. Keystone XL is still under construction, but would also bring oil sands from Canada to Nebraska where it would connect to existing pipeline.

Environmentalists spent years opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, filing court challenges and successfully lobbying former President Barack Obama to personally reject the project in late 2015. President Donald Trump reversed that decision in early 2017, but Keystone XL’s progress has since been delayed by activist lawsuits…

Venezuelan Opposition Leader Juan Guaido Calls Out U.S. Democrats Ocasio-Cortez And Ilhan Omar Over Horrors Of Socialism – Gateway Pundit

Venezuelan Opposition leader Juan Guaido joined FBN’s Trish Regan to discuss the latest crisis in his home country. The U.S. and over 50 countries recognize Juan Guaido as the acting President of Venezuela since January 2019. Failed Socialist tyrant Nicolas Maduro refuses to step down after tainted elections and an economy that has completely crashed.

During his discussion with Trish Regan Juan Guaido told those on the far left, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, that the root of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis is directly tied to socialism.

Dozens Of Smarmy Douchebags Charged In Sweeping College Admissions Bribery Scam – WBUR

Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were charged along with nearly 50 other people Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents bribed college coaches and insiders at testing centers to get their children into some of the most elite schools in the country, federal prosecutors said.

Authorities called it the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department.

“These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege,” Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at Boston federal court in announcing the $25 million bribery case against 50 people in all.

“Fucking Insane”: Friends And Former Aides Dismiss De Blasio’s Presidential Ambitions As “Idiotic” – Zero Hedge

Pelosi Says She’s Opposed To Impeaching Trump: “He’s Just Not Worth It” – Fox News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., revealed she’s opposed to the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the absence of evidence that is “compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.”

“I’m not for impeachment,” Pelosi told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday. “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

The speaker’s remarks ran counter to sentiments expressed by some freshman members of her caucus, most notably Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who vowed to Democratic activists that she would help “impeach the motherfucker” hours after she was sworn in this past January.

Despite her opposition to impeachment, Pelosi said Trump was “unfit” to be president “ethically,” “[i]ntellectually,” and “curiosity-wise.”…

Looters Pillage Venezuelan Supermarkets As Crippling Blackout Hits Day 5 – Zero Hedge

Looting and violence are rapidly on the rise as Venezuela enters its fifth day without power across most of the country though some reports suggest as much as 30% of power has returned to parts of the capital city Caracas.

The UK Daily Mail has published a series of shocking photographs showing the aftermath of mobs looting supermarkets in Caracas as things turn desperate. The already politically unstable Latin American country was plunged into darkness after last Thursday night all but one of 23 states suffered mass blackouts.

As reports of approaching 20 or more deaths at hospitals attempting to operate with faulty back-up generators came in over the weekend, Reuters noted, “Electricity experts said that outage was most likely due to failures in the transmission system, and that the government lacks the equipment and staff to repair them.”

The 1972 Progressive Pathway To Oblivion – Victor Davis Hanson

What is strange about the new envisioned progressive agendas for 2020 is that no serious Democratic presidential candidate next year could ever run on them.

Florida Cop Allegedly Used Police Database to Try And Get Dates With Over 100 Women – Law & Crime

A now-former Florida cop recently resigned over allegations that he used the department’s database to get dates and have sex with nearly 150 women over the course of the past six years, according to an internal affairs investigation.

Amid Surge In Knife Violence, British Supermarket Chain Pulls Kitchen Knives Off Shelves – PJ Media

In the face of rising knife violence rates in the UK, supermarket chain Asda will no longer be selling individual kitchen knives. This comes on the heels of the company’s decision in 2016 to securely package all knives after a customer was stabbed inside a Poundland, another British grocery chain.

For their part, Poundland stopped selling knives altogether last year.

The grocery chains aren’t entirely incorrect – England does have a growing knife violence problem. However, regulating knives won’t stop the violence. And, boy, does England have a growing knife violence problem.

Trump To Cut $4 Billion In Domestic Programs, Elimination Of Legal Services Corporation – Washington Examiner

President Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget proposes a massive nearly $4 billion cut in programs the White House calls useless and bloated including the popular Legal Services Corporation that uses federal money to provide free legal help to the poor that the administration believes is a local issue.

Of 10 targeted programs, four would be eliminated, fulfilling a 2016 Trump campaign promise to kill wasteful agencies.

Many of programs and agencies have been sharply criticized for years for misusing American tax dollars, including for Netflix subscriptions. One, the Bureau of International Labor Affairs, helps unions in Colombia organize, said the White House.

The proposal also calls for the end of federal land buying to add to its ownership of 700 million acres, instead focusing on bolstering firefighting and national park restoration.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight Crashes Just After Takeoff, Killing 157 – USA Today

An Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed shortly after takeoff from Ethiopia’s capital on Sunday morning, killing all 157 people thought to be on board, the airline and state broadcaster said, as anxious families rushed to airports in Addis Ababa and the destination, Nairobi.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash of the Boeing 737-8 MAX plane, which was new and had been delivered to the airline in November, records show.

The state-owned Ethiopian Airlines, widely considered the best-managed airline in Africa, calls itself Africa’s largest carrier and has ambitions of becoming the gateway to the continent.

It said 149 passengers and eight crew members were thought to be on the plane that crashed six minutes after departing Addis Ababa on its way to Kenya’s capital. The crash occurred around Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 31 miles south of Addis Ababa, at 8:44 a.m.

Trump’s ‘Hire American’ Policy Delivers Fastest Wage Growth Since 2009 – Breitbart

“We’re seeing wages rise more than they have at any time for a long, long time,” Trump told reporters. He added:

Vice President Mike Pence said, “wages are rising at the fastest pace in nearly a decade, and more Americans are working today than ever before in the history of our country.”

Americans’ wealth-creating productivity is also rising much faster than under former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Productivity rose 1.8 percent in 2018, up from 0.2 percent in Obama’s last year, because higher wages are pressuring employers to buy the labor-saving machinery that will help Americans produce even more wealth…

House DemoNazis Pass Measure In Support Of Illegal Alien Voting – Washington Times

Leftist Nightmare Update: Researchers Estimate Over 100,000 Migrant Women Will Be Sexually Assaulted on Way To U.S. This Year – Breitbart

Crime data shows that roughly 2,600 migrants will be murdered and roughly 103,000 will be raped or assaulted during their 2019 migration to the United States, says an estimate prepared by Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisors.

“We estimate 80,000 migrant women were raped or coerced into sex during 2018, rising to 103,000 on higher migrant numbers in 2019,” said a statement from Kopits, whose predictions of migration increases been repeatedly validated by the eventual numbers. “These are persons… Incidents could be up to 50% higher.”

Alongside the murder and rapes, Kopits predicted 34,000 kidnappings, 21,000 cases of forced labor trafficking, and 106,000 robberies during 2019.

Kopits argues that the massive level of brutality could be sharply reduced if the United States expanded the current blue-collar guest workers programs.

New DemoNazi Bill To Tax Stock Market Could Devastate Ordinary Savings And Retirement – Daily Signal
.

.
A new tax proposal in Congress aims to stick it to the rich. But if passed, it could devastate the U.S. financial system and ruin the value of ordinary Americans’ retirement accounts.

The proposal, introduced by a team of Democrats in the House and Senate, would assess a penalty each time someone sells a stock, bond, or other financial instrument. It would tax each of the roughly 10 billion U.S. equity market trades each year, among other transactions.

The goal, presumably, is to hit the rich. But the stock market is not just a tool for the wealthy. Some of the largest shareholders and beneficiaries of our modern financial system are pension funds for public-sector employees and private retirement account holders. Firefighters, teachers, university endowments, and private retirement savings all benefit from sophisticated equity markets…

There Is A National Emergency On Our Border; Here’s Proof – National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd

As a 21-year front line veteran Border Patrol agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council, I’d like to put to bed the false notion that there is no national emergency on the United States/Mexico border. I hope facts will do the trick.

Since November of 2013, I’ve been called upon to give expert Congressional testimony about various aspects of border security on 18 separate occasions.

I’ve testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, and the House Committee on Natural Resources.

This is important because during every hearing regarding border security at which I testified in 2014, Democrats claimed the United States was in the state of a humanitarian crisis at the border.

Aides Try To Make Socialist Commissar Bernie Sanders Seem Human – Monica Showalter

Turns out Amy Klobuchar isn’t the only Democratic presidential candidate with a revolting personality.

Aides are reportedly struggling to put openly socialist Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders through some kind of charm school. According to the Atlantic Monthly:

The senator from Vermont fought his staff for weeks as they pushed him to get more personal, and be a little less gruff, as he launched his second presidential campaign. He didn’t think talking about himself was just stupid – he thought it risked undermining the mission.

But they finally convinced him that the mission was going to fail if he didn’t. So he spent the weekend in Brooklyn and Chicago launching his campaign with rallies meant to emphasize the experiences that made him who he is – the son of a paint salesman who fled from anti-Semitism in Poland, and the student at the University of Chicago whose activism led him to get on a bus in 1963 and travel to hear the “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, D.C…

Democrats Need Stupid Voters – John Leonard

Remember Jonathan Gruber, the chief architect of ObamaCare?

The economics professor from MIT had bragged the law was deliberately written in tortured and confusing language in order to fool the American voter and famously said, “lack of transparency was a huge political advantage.” Gruber also sneered that the overall strategy to have the bill passed into law “depended on the stupidity of the American voter.”

How could Gruber be confident that enough voters would be so stupid as to support Democratic efforts to take control of our healthcare? Well, for one thing, he’s not only a Democrat, but part of their aristocracy. Even more importantly, Gruber is an academic elitist. In other words, making sure people remain stupid about basic economics has been the primary focus of his life’s work. But he’s hardly alone.

Landmark Decision: Alabama Court Rules Aborted Baby Is A Person With Rights – Daily Wire

The Madison County probate court ruled that a father of a baby that was aborted by the father’s girlfriend has the right to sue the woman’s center that performed the procedure as well the employees of the center and the pharmaceutical company that made the medication used in the abortion.

On February 10, 2017, against his wishes, the girlfriend of Ryan Magers aborted the baby they had conceived. In early February 2019, Magers filed suit; the suit states that the baby (Baby Roe) was aborted at six weeks in 2017, despite the fact that Magers repeatedly begged his girlfriend to let the baby live. The girlfriend went to the Alabama Women’s Center, where she was given a pill that would abort the baby.

Magers said, “I just tried to plead with her and plead with her and just talk to her about it and see what I could do, but in the end, there was nothing I could do to change her mind.”…

County Sheriffs Take Sanctuary City Playbook To Defy Gun Control – Daily Caller

Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief Of Staff Ran $1 Million Slush Fund By Diverting Campaign Cash To His Own Companies – Washington Examiner

Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

The cash transfers from the PACs – overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff – run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.

Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

The arrangement skirted reporting requirements and may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates, according to the complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Canada’s Economy Practically Grinds To A Halt, And Nobody Saw It Coming – Financial Post

Canada’s economy practically came to a halt in the final three months of 2018, in a much deeper-than-expected slowdown that brings the underlying strength of the expansion into doubt.

The country’s economy grew by just 0.1 per cent in the fourth quarter, for an annualized pace of 0.4 per cent, Statistics Canada said Friday from Ottawa. That’s the worst quarterly performance in two and a half years, down from annualized 2 per cent in the third quarter and well below economist expectations for a 1 per cent annualized increase.

While a slowdown was widely expected in the final months of the year due to falling oil prices, it’s a much bleaker picture than anyone anticipated with weakness extending well beyond the energy sector.

Consumption spending grew at the slowest pace in almost four years, housing fell by the most in a decade, business investment dropped sharply for a second straight quarter, and domestic demand posted its largest decline since 2015…

Jew-Hating Democrat Rashida Tlaib Paid Herself $17,500 From Campaign Funds After The Election In Apparent FEC Violation – Washington Examiner

A candidate can only draw a salary from the official campaign for the duration of their candidacy. The FEC specifies that a candidate no longer qualifies for salary payments from the day after the general election. The two salary disbursements were made on Nov. 16 for $2,000 and on Dec. 1 for $15,500.

But his trip wasn’t completely fruitless. He came home with a massive boom for the American economy from Vietnam. Namely, a $15 billion dollar contract for Boeing which will result in thousands of new jobs. The media will ignore this as usual.

Man Faked His Kidnapping To Avoid Paying A $50,000 Super Bowl Bet – Breitbart

Police in New York claim that a man arranged his own kidnapping as a means to avoid paying off on a $50,000 Super Bowl bet.

The New York State Police report that when North Tonawanda resident Robert Brandel was found in a parking lot north of Buffalo, he told them that he had been kidnapped by two men from his Super Bowl squares betting pool. Brandel said they robbed him of $16,000 and left him tied up in a van for two days, CBS News reported.

Police found Brandel in Newfane, New York, on February 27 laying in the back of his truck with a rope around his neck and duct tape wrapped around his hands and ankles.

But an investigation reportedly found that Brandel put in several fake names in a Super Bowl squares game imagining that he would win and rake in the cash. Instead, he lost and owes the pool $50,000.

Instead of getting out of his betting debt, police arrested him and charged him with filing a false police report and fraud…

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ new deputy national press secretary likely won’t be eligible to vote in the 2020 election due to what she says is her status as an undocumented immigrant.

Virginia Democrats Elect Their First Islamist Anti-Semite – Daniel Greenfield

While Virginia Democrats were debating whether to oust Governor Northam for wearing blackface, Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax over alleged rape and Attorney General Mark Herring for also wearing blackface, a much more blatant example of contemporary bigotry by a Virginia Democrat had come to light.

Aside from the usual rants about Israel, Samirah had posted that the Jews had stolen his grandfather’s land and “washed off as the Promised Land for Jews only (using the Torah and Zionist ideology, a 3000 yo religious book and a 100 yo Jew-only philosophy.)”

Green New Deal? Biggest U.S. City To Go ‘100 Percent Renewable’ Lost Millions On Solar, Wind Contracts – Daily Caller

As Congress debates the Green New Deal resolution to transition the U.S. economy to “net-zero” greenhouse gas emissions, a Texas town struggles under the growing financial burden of going green.

‘Sometimes You Have To Walk’: Trump Scraps North Korea Summit Deal – Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump said he had walked away from a nuclear deal at his summit with Kim Jong Un in Vietnam on Thursday because of unacceptable demands from the North Korean leader to lift punishing U.S.-led sanctions.

Trump said two days of talks in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi had made good progress in building relations and on the key issue of denuclearization, but it was important not to rush into a bad deal.

“It was all about the sanctions,” Trump said at a news conference after the talks were cut short. “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that.”

The United Nations and the United States ratcheted up sanctions on North Korea when the reclusive state undertook a series of nuclear and ballistic missile tests in 2017, cutting off its main sources hard cash.

9th Circuit Gets Another Trump-Picked Judge, After White House Bypasses Consultation With DemoNazis – Fox News

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed President Trump’s nominee to be a judge on the liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in a party-line vote – and, in a historic snub, the White House ignored the input of the judge’s two Democratic home-state senators in the process.

The aggressive and unprecedented move to bypass the traditional “blue slip” consultation process and plow ahead with the confirmation comes as the Trump administration seeks to systematically erode left-wing dominance on the key appellate court, which Trump has called “disgraceful” and politically biased.

Judge Rules Male-Only Draft Unconstitutional Now That Women Are In Combat Roles – Circa

Miller’s decision hinged on the Department of Defense’s policy change allowing women in combat roles in 2015.

“While historical restrictions on women in the military may have justified past discrimination, men and women are now ‘similarly situated for purposes of a draft or registration for a draft,'” wrote Miller, citing Rostker v. Goldberg, a 1981 Supreme Court case that upheld the male-only draft.

An American Epidemic: Toxic Imbecility – Thaddeus G. McCotter

I’m a doctor. Fine, I’m a doctor of laws not of medicine. But I can scroll Web, M.D. as well as anyone, so believe you me – forget all the other scourges ravaging our free republic, even if (nay, especially if) they are afflicting you. Those scourges are mere distractions from the root cause of our impending doom.

No, I’m not talking about climate change/global warming/new Ice Age or whatever current false alarm the Left is sounding, for that false alarm is itself is a symptom of the new scourge; and, at the risk of sounding alarmist, our demise may well occur within the next twelve years.

For, as President Abraham Lincoln ominously noted, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” And Mr. Lincoln wasn’t just talking about Jussie Smollett paying for his hoax hate crime with a check.

What is this postmodern plague consuming our nation?

Toxic imbecility…

Venezuelan Opposition Lawmaker Poisoned At Colombian Border – Daily Express

A Venezuelan lawmaker and member of the opposition is in a serious condition after reportedly being poisoned in Colombia.

According to BNO news, Freddy Superlano was poisoned at a restaurant in Cucuta, a city near the country’s border with Venezuela. His party, which is led by Juan Guaido, has confirmed that Mr Superlano’s cousin and assistant Carlos Salinas has died as a result of the same poisoning incident.

Reports state Mr Superlano and Mr Salinas were spiked with a substance known as hyoscine or scopolamine. The drug is said to be used to treat motion sickness and other conditions. However, it has also reportedly been used in robberies and sexual assaults which has led to it gaining the nickname ‘Devil’s Breath’.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio condemned the attack calling it a “grave situation”. In a statement, the party said: “We wait for the results of the investigation by the Colombian authorities to establish the facts.”…

How The Left Tricks People Into Thinking Socialism Is Plausible – William F. Marshall
.

.
What on earth has happened to the Democratic Party? Even by liberal standards, the policies the left now advocates appear insane. To say they are an order of fries short of a Happy Meal is an insult to McDonald’s.

I’m used to childishness from the Democratic Party, but something is very wrong in the Land of Unicorns and Fairy Dust. Is all of this just the usual hyper-liberal reaction to a Republican presidency, or is there something more insidious and dangerous at work? Tthe latter may be the case, in the form of something called the Overton Window Principle. Let’s recap the last several weeks in Lala-Land.

Consider the “Green New Deal” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports. Her resolution before Congress calls for America to entirely divest itself of fossil fuels within ten years…

DemoNazi Lawmaker Drafting Legislation To Force Colorado Residents To Vaccinate Their Kids – The Hill

A Colorado state lawmaker is drafting legislation to eliminate an exemption that allows parents to opt out of vaccinating their children for personal reasons.

The Denver Channel reported Friday that Democratic Rep. Kyle Mullica has begun drafting the bill, which would make it more difficult for parents to opt out of vaccinations.

The effort comes after Colorado was found to have the lowest rate of vaccinations in the country, according to the outlet, which noted that less than 89 percent of kindergarteners are vaccinated against illness such as measles and mumps.

“To hear that we were last in the entire country was concerning, it was embarrassing,” Mullica said. “This is not a political issue, this is about our kids being safe.” he continued.

The bill also comes after a flurry of measles outbreaks across in the Pacific Northwest and in New York state…

.
D.C. Police escorted men and women on horses through the streets of the nation’s capital on Friday as Cowboys for Trump and a last-minute Native American rider rode in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to build a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico.

Some on the sidewalks cheered while others jeered as police escorted the more than a dozen riders carrying American and “Trump Make America Great Again” flags through downtown and past the White House.

Most of the Cowboys for Trump came from border communities in New Mexico where they said drug and human trafficking is rampant, and Trump’s national emergency declaration is essential to securing the border and protecting the American people and the lifestyle we enjoy…
