Attorney General Barr’s Summary Of Mueller’s Russian Collusion Report: Diddly With A Side Order Of Squat – Frontpage
.

.
In May 2017, following President Trump’s firing of James Comey as FBI Director, Robert S. Mueller was appointed by the Department of Justice as Special Counsel.

He was tasked by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein with investigating “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump” and any matters that “may arise directly from the investigation.”

Nearly two years later, after issuing more than 2800 subpoenas, executing nearly 500 search warrants, and interviewing about 500 witnesses, Mr. Mueller delivered his final report to Attorney General William P. Barr on his office’s findings, without any recommendations for further indictments…

Gun-Confiscation Plan Blocked Permanently – WorldNetDaily

A judge in Illinois has torpedoed a town’s plan for gun “regulation” that included both the confiscation and destruction of ordinary rifles.

The victory was announced Friday by the Second Amendment Foundation, which opposed a plan by the village of Deerfield to ban so-called “assault weapons.”

“We are delighted with the judge’s decision, which we hope sends a message to other municipal governments that they can’t try to sneak around the state’s preemption statute in an effort to ban legal firearms ownership,” said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb.

“Last year, we were granted a temporary injunction by the circuit court, and this order making it permanent simply solidifies our position,” he said.

SAF was joined by the Illinois State Rifle Association and Deerfield resident Daniel Easterday, a lawful firearms owner, in the lawsuit against the city.

They were represented by Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale…

New Jersey DemoNazis Working To Remove One Of The Greatest American Novels Ever Written From Schools – Big League Politics

Two Democratic lawmakers from New Jersey have found another scapegoat for their politically correct crusade against the evils of racism in society: Mark Twain’s legendary book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

These race-obsessed hucksters are triggered by the book’s uncensored content which includes racial slurs and attitudes of the late 19th century, the time period in which the book was written. These passages are considered abhorrent and unacceptable to these snowflake government officials.

Naked Russian Man Tries To Board Plane, Claiming To Be More ‘Aerodynamic’ – Moscow Times

A naked man attempted to board a plane at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport while shouting that clothes make him less aerodynamic, the REN TV television channel reported Saturday.

The man passed through the Ural Airlines flight’s registration before suddenly stripping off his clothes and running stark naked onto the jet bridge, eyewitnesses said.

“He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed,” REN TV quoted a fellow passenger as saying.

The nude intruder was intercepted by airport staff before he could make it onto his plane to Crimea. He was later detained by police officers.

“After the police had detained the offender, he was taken to the airport’s medical room and then was hospitalized in a medical facility. The offender is a native of Yakutsk but lives in the Moscow region,” the press service of the Interior Ministry said.

A video has been released of the man after police detention, handcuffed on the floor – and still very naked…

UK Coup Erupts: Theresa May Cabinet In Revolt, Plotting Her Imminent Overthrow – Zero Hedge

Theresa May may have days, if not hours, left as prime minister of the UK following a full-blown cabinet coup on Saturday night as senior ministers moved to oust the UK prime minister and replace her with her deputy, David Lidington.

According to the Sunday Times, following a “frantic series of private telephone calls”, senior ministers agreed the prime minister must announce she is standing down, warning that she has become a toxic and “erratic” figure whose judgment has “gone haywire.”

The plotters reportedly plan to confront May at a cabinet meeting on Sunday and demand that she announces she is quitting. If she refuses, they will threaten mass resignations or publicly demand her head…

How To End Our National Nightmare: Probe Hillary Clinton Again – Michael Goodwin

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation, it is tempting to breathe a sigh of relief and assume that our long national nightmare is over. Resist the temptation, the assumption is false.

We are not close to the end. Not by a long shot.

In fact, I believe the last two years, as traumatic as they were, will prove to be the easier part of the nightmare, because Mueller dealt only with whether Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with Russia to swing the election. Based on what we know so far, especially that no more indictments are coming, it appears that Mueller’s answer is no, there was no collusion or obstruction of justice.

If true, this is an enormous vindication for Trump, who insisted all along that he had done nothing wrong. Supporters were understandably in a celebratory mood, with some saying on Twitter that it felt like 2016 election night all over again…

The Treasury Department said the sanctions target 31 Iranian scientists, technicians and companies affiliated with Iran’s Organization for Defense Innovation and Research, which is known to have been at the forefront of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Leftist Southern Povery Law Center Implodes: President And Legal Director Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal – Zero Hedge

The Southern Poverty Law Center – the “vicious left-wing attack dog” used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify “hate groups” – is unraveling.

A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims – with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism,” the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization’s legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday.

Cohen had been with the organization 33 years and was one of its most prominent figures.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: Comey Committed Fraud On FISA Court – WorldNetDaily

In light of new revelations, former FBI Director James Comey and the others who signed off on FISA warrants to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign should be held in contempt, contends Harvard emeritus law professor Alan Dershowitz.

Dershowitz, in an interview Thursday with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, was reacting to the Justice Department’s release of heavily redacted versions of FISA warrants. The documents show the DOJ and the FBI falsely attested to the FISA court four separate times that former British spy Christopher Steele was not the source of an article corroborating the anti-Trump “dossier” he wrote, the Gateway Pundit reported.

In fact, the House Intelligence Committee found that reporter Michael Isikoff’s only source for his Sept. 23, 2016, article was the dossier author.

Hannity recalled to Dershowitz that Comey signed the first warrant. Later, Comey failed to inform the court that the dossier used as evidence was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee…

Mississippi Governor Signs ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Ban – Reuters

Mississippi’s Republican governor signed one of America’s strictest abortion bills on Thursday banning women from obtaining an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can often occur before a woman even realizes she is pregnant.

Dubbed the ‘heartbeat bill,’ this is the second legislative attempt in less than a year aimed at restricting abortions in a state with a single abortion clinic. In a tweet earlier this week, Governor Phil Bryant thanked the state’s legislature for “protecting the unborn” by passing the bill and sending it to him for his signature.

Trump Blasts ‘Anti-Jewish’ Democrats For Skipping AIPAC Conference – Breitbart

President Donald Trump reacted to the news Friday that 2020 Democratic candidates are skipping the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference this year.

“The Democrats have very much proven to be anti-Israel, there’s no question about that, and it’s a disgrace,” Trump said. “I don’t know what’s happened to them but they are totally anti-Israel, frankly I think they’re anti-Jewish.”

Trump was asked about the conference as he left the White House for a trip to Mar-a-lago.

2020 candidates including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, have all said they would not attend the conference after MoveOn.org began a petition to boycott the event.

New Evidence Indicates Cross-Sex Hormones Trigger Major Heart Problems – The Federalist

The Western world is engaged in a massive and almost unregulated experiment on children and young adults. As gender dysphoria – the feeling of being trapped in a body of the opposite sex – takes hold and ramps up, physicians such as the notorious Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy are administering medical treatments that can literally ruin young people’s lives.

These doctors assure desperate patients and families (and a gullible press) that the medical interventions are safe. But the wall of silence about the true consequences is developing cracks.

The transgender activist lobby is ever vigilant to suppress research findings that conflict with their claims, or at least to intimidate dissident researchers into silence. This occurred recently when Dr. Lisa Littman of Brown University published a study suggesting a psychological rather than physical basis for Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) – when a teenager suddenly decides he or she is actually of the opposite sex.

Appropriately cowed, Brown quickly withdrew publicity for the study…

‘Progressive’ = The New Nazi – Joseph Hippolito

Before Donald Trump was elected President, and certainly since, self-described “progressives” or “democratic socialists” in the Democratic Party have denigrated anybody who opposes their agenda as Nazis. But are they engaging in psychological projection? Consider the following recent events.

Comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Jim Clyburn and Rep. Rashida Tlaib display contempt for Jews – in Rep. Clyburn’s case, for victims of the Holocaust. Heavily Democratic legislatures in New York, Illinois and Virginia perpetuate the wanton destruction of human life by passing laws allowing abortion to the moment of birth.

In Virginia, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said a woman can choose whether a baby who survived a botched abortion should live. False flags are cynically organized to delude the unsuspecting and promote an agenda.

Behind those developments is the pervasive identity politics that defines some groups as inherently better than others…

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.

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

House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice.

Since President Donald Trump took office, the U.S. has added 479,000 manufacturing jobs and manufacturing employment has now reached a level not seen since December 2008, the month before President Barack Obama took office.

In December 2008, the month before Obama’s inauguration, manufacturing employment was 12,850,000. In January 2009, when Obama was inaugurated, it dropped by 289,000 jobs to 12,561,000.

Manufacturing employment in the United States eventually dropped to a nadir of 11,453,000 in February and March of 2010. In December 2016, the last month before Trump’s inauguration, there were 12,355,000 employed in manufacturing in the United States…

Democrats have been falling over themselves to try and defend Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) anti-Semitism, but House Minority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) might have just taken the cake.

Clyburn, in an interview with the Hill’s Mike Ellis, basically told descendants of Holocaust survivors and those who were put in Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Japanese internment camps to “check their privilege”.

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. For example, the H-2B program brings in roughly 80,000 guest workers from Jamaica, Mexico, Honduras, and many other countries for manual labor at resorts, hotels, restaurants and forestry firms…

A horde of 200 vegans stormed a farm in Lincolnshire, England, to protest animal cruelty but caused a stampede that crushed piglets, according to the farmer.

Farmer Sylvia Hook said the mob of vegans from the “Meat the Victims” group distressed her animals while storming Sandilands Farm in their rush to cuddle newborn piglets, causing two of them to get crushed and killed. The crowd reportedly damaged farm property, frightened Hook’s family, caused injury to two other animals, and sowed chaos by cuddling piglets that did not want to be held and then placed them in the wrong pens with the wrong sows.

3.8 Million Drop Off Food Stamps Under Trump – Breitbart

More than 3.8 million people dropped off food stamps since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The latest USDA data revealed that food stamp participation dropped to 38,577,141 in November 2018, down by 3,899,257 since Trump took office in February 2017, when 42,134,301 Americans received food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Food stamp enrollment also dropped to its lowest level in a decade. The last time overall food stamp participation was this low was in November 2009, when 38,184,306 people were on the government dole, according to USDA data.

Feds Seize $2.6 Million In Drugs At Arizona Border – Breitbart

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized approximately 360 pounds of methamphetamine and 2,900 of marijuana on Wednesday during two vehicle inspections at the Arizona border with Mexico. The alleged seizures resulted in the arrests of two Mexican nationals and seizure of more than $2.6 million in drugs.

The first seizure took place when CBP officers assigned to the Port of Nogales Mariposa commercial lane contacted a 35-year-old Mexican national driving a tractor-trailer as he attempted to cross into the United States from Nogales, Sonora.

Officers sent the driver to a secondary inspection area where a K-9 detection team began a search of the contents of the trailer. The K-9 alerted to the presence of a scent it has been trained to detect leading CBP officers to discover 190 bundles of marijuana concealed within a shipment of charcoal.

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

The filing shows the Michigan lawmaker taking more than $17,000 in two disbursements as a salary nearly a month after the conclusion of the 2018 midterm elections.

A candidate can only draw a salary from the official campaign for the duration of their candidacy.

America’s Newest Muslim Martyr Is A Child Rapist And Killer – Daniel Greenfield

Apple, Google Pressured To Drop Saudi App That Lets Men Track And Control Women – Mashable

Google and Apple are under pressure from human rights groups and a U.S. senator to remove from their stores an app called Absher. The app was created by the Saudi government and includes a feature that helps men monitor and control women who are under their guardianship, including wives and unmarried daughters.

Saudi men have this right thanks to the country’s oppressive guardianship laws, which mandate every woman has a male guardian to make critical life decisions on her behalf. That guardian can be a father, brother, husband, or son, according to Human Rights Watch.

So men get the power to approve things like whether a woman applies for a passport, studies abroad, travels outside the country, or gets married. That system was already well in place before Absher’’s debut, but the app makes controlling women much more efficient.

While Absher was released in 2015, it’s prompted new scrutiny. One woman pursuing asylum recently indicated that she tried to flee the country without being detected by Absher and her male guardiam…

Breasts – Paul A. Rahe

Now that I have your attention, I wish to direct it to a split decision handed down today by the 10th Circuit. On equal-protection grounds, the court struck down an ordinance in place in Fort Collins, CO forbidding women from baring their breasts in public except for the purpose of breastfeeding. Ed Whelan at National Review is on the case, and he reports the following:

In his majority opinion (joined by Judge Mary Beck Briscoe), Judge Gregory A. Phillips cites with approval the district court’s objection that the ordinance “perpetuates a stereotype engrained in our society that female breasts are primarily objects of sexual desire whereas male breasts are not.”

In a classic false dichotomy, Phillips concludes that the city’s “professed interest in protecting children derives not from any morphological differences between men’s and women’s breasts but from negative stereotypes depicting women’s breasts, but not men’s breasts, as sex objects.” Ditto for “notions of morality” that might underlie the law.

The minority opinion, which Whelan quotes at length, is, as he points out, quite sensible…

Man Who Says He’s ‘Female’ Enters Women’s Bathroom, Sexually Assaults 10-Year-Old Girl – LifeSite News

Trump’s Emergency Declaration Is Legal And Needed To Protect America; Here’s Why – Kayleigh McEnany

President Trump took bold and decisive action in the best interests of the American people when he declared a national emergency Friday to enable construction of a badly needed barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border to stymie human trafficking, drug trafficking and criminal crossings.

The president’s move is a dramatic contrast to the radical position of Democrats supporting open borders and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, a vital law enforcement organization that protects our national security.

President Trump’s national emergency declaration is well within his executive authority. Along with other executive action and a new spending bill passed by Congress, it will permit him to reallocate and aggregate $8.1 billion in funding for a barrier along our southern border…

Judge Imposes Limited Gag Order In Roger Stone Case – Daily Caller

A federal judge issued a limited gag order in the government’s case against Roger Stone, the longtime Trump confidant indicted in the special counsel’s probe last month.

The order, issued by U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, prohibits Stone from making statements to the media at the Washington, D.C. courthouse where his case will be handled, though the longtime GOP operative will largely be allowed to speak publicly about his case.

Lawyers and witnesses in the case face a more stringent gag order, Jackson ruled.

“Counsel for the parties and the witnesses must refrain from making statements to the media or in public settings that pose a substantial likelihood of material prejudice to this case,” reads Jackson’s four-page ruling.

Jackson said that the gag order against Stone could be tightened in the future.

Stone has argued that a gag order against him would limit his ability to make a living…

Veterinarian Gets Six Years In Prison For Smuggling Heroin Inside Of Puppies – Law & Crime

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Elorez raised dogs on farmland he leased in Medellin, Columbia between September 2004 and January 2005. As part of a trafficking scheme, he implanted bags of the liquid heroin into nine puppies, so they could be sent to the United States with the drugs smuggled inside them.

Authorities searched the property on January 1, 2005, and recovered 10 bags of liquid heroin from inside the puppies, as well as seven other bags. Of the nine puppies, three died due to a virus.

Here’s How Much Democrats’ Refusal To Fund Border Security Cost America During Shutdown – Daily Wire

Through a series of calculations, Vittert estimates that the cost “associated with our furloughed federal workers is about $5 billion,” which includes both the amount of money that the government workers missed out on, as well as the amount of money that was not spent in the economy as a result.

What about Hillary [Clinton] to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa [and Peter Strzok’s] deleted texts [and Anthony Weiner’s] laptop? Much more!” Trump wrote Saturday.

Undocumented Democrat With Flesh-Eating Bacteria Found With Large Group Of Border Jumpers – Breitbart

Border Patrol agents learned that a migrant who crossed the border with a large group in the New Mexico desert is suffering from flesh-eating bacteria. Border Patrol officials said this is one of many ailments for which they are treating migrants.

Border Patrol agents assigned to the Lordsburg Station in New Mexico said a Central American migrant sought medical treatment for what he believed to be a rash. The agents transported the migrant to a hospital where doctors determine the rash to be caused by necrotizing fascitis – flesh-eating bacteria, Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Antunez told the Associated Press.

The bacteria, which can be fatal, spreads quickly after being introduced to the body through a minor cut or scrape. It can cause an infection that can destroy muscle, skin, and other tissue, officials reported.

The migrant is expected to require extensive treatment for the infection….

Snopes Refuses To Correct Nathan Phillips “Stolen Valor” Fact Check; Google, Facebook Promote Disinfo – Zero Hedge
.

Snopes is refusing to set the record straight about Nathan Phillips, the Native American at the center of the Covington High School student controversy.

Phillips, who turned out to be the Maytag Man instead of a “Recon Ranger,” has stolen valor for years – falsely claiming in interviews to have been deployed to Vietnam – before carefully changing his wording to clarify that he was a “Vietnam-times” veteran.

After the Washington Post issued a major correction noting that Phillips was never deployed to Vietnam, he was outed as a refrigerator technician who was never deployed overseas, and went AWOL several times by former Navy SEAL Don Shipley, who obtained Phillips’ records.

Snopes, however, continues to call Phillips’ false claims to be “unproven” despite ample evidence that he lied…

Democrats Ducking Vote On Rejecting Anti-Semitism – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic leaders are remaining quiet about a new congressional measure that rejects anti-Semitism and chides a new class of Democratic congressional members for the open embrace of notorious anti-Semites and anti-Israel causes, according to the leading Republican author of that new measure.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), one of just two Jewish Republicans in Congress, has introduced a new congressional resolution in the House that categorically rejects anti-Semitism in all its forms and calls out some newly elected Democratic members who have ridden a popular wave into Congress on the backs of anti-Semitic leaders and causes, Zeldin told the Washington Free Beacon in a wide-ranging interview.

While a similar House resolution condemning white supremacy sailed to a nearly unanimous vote several weeks ago, Zeldin’s amendment, focused directly on anti-Semitism, has put Democratic leaders in a precarious position as they are forced to reject the views of popular new freshman colleagues…

Republican State Senator Wants To Ban ‘Dwarf-Tossing’ In Washington – Daily Wire

According to MyNorthwest, a Republican state senator is seeking to ban the practice of “dwarf tossing” in Washington state because it “demeans and exploits those of small stature.”

So, what exactly is “dwarf tossing”? Apparently, it started in Australia in the 1980’s and usually takes place in a bar or pub where drunken revelers compete at who can throw a dwarf (little person) the farthest. The little person is typically suited up with Velcro and thrown onto a mattress or a Velcro-coated wall.

In Washington State, Sen. Mike Padden (R-Spokane Valley) recently announced legislation to prohibit dwarf-tossing contests at bars and strip clubs. If passed, the state would become the third in the United States to ban “dwarf tossing,” an entirely voluntary contest.

“There’s nothing funny about dwarf-tossing,” Padden said in a press release. “It ridicules and demeans people with dwarfism, and causes others to think of them as objects of public amusement…

NBC Pens Fake News About Gay Valedictorian’s Banned ‘Covington’ Speech – Breitbart

Far-left NBC News smeared Covington Catholic High School by spreading fake news about “Covington” banning of a gay valedictorian’s speech.

For five days now, the establishment media have relentlessly demonized a group of high school kids guilty of nothing more than behaving admirably in the face of taunts and bullying. On Saturday night, the media used selectively edited video and proven lies told by American Indian activist Nathan Phillips to falsely accuse MAGA hat-wearing kids – 16-year-olds from Covington Catholic High School – of ganging up on the activist.

Video proves the kids, who were waiting for their bus after the March for Life, had been minding their own business when a gang of adult black nationalists taunted them for the better part of an hour with racist and homophobic slurs. Then Phillips menaced and provoked the kids by invading their personal space while beating a drum.

Immigration Loophole Allows MS-13 Gangbangers To Go Free – Washington Times

If the Trump administration had its way, Ramon Arevalo Lopez and Oscar Canales Molina would have been either in detention or deported.

All three of the illegal immigrants entered the U.S. in 2016 as unaccompanied alien children, meaning they crossed the border without parents – a status that earned them a quick release into the country, where they were quickly reunited with their family and began to live while awaiting deportations that never came.
