President Trump Vows U.S. Will Deport ‘Millions’ Of Illegal Aliens Starting Next Week – MarketWatch

President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions of people living in the country illegally on the eve of formally announcing his re-election bid.

In a pair of tweets Monday night, Trump said that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would next week “begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.”

“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he wrote.

An administration official said the effort would focus on the more than 1 million people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges but remain at large in the country. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to explain the president’s tweets.

It is unusual for law enforcement agencies to announce raids before they take place. Some in Trump’s administration believe that decisive shows of force – like mass arrests – can serve as effective deterrents…

The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’ handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and that 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” have been issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation.

Treasonous New York Governor Signs Bill Granting Driver’s Licenses To Illegal Aliens – New Yoek Post

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday night signed legislation granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants – shortly after the controversial measure passed the state Senate.

Cuomo’s action came despite throwing supporters a last minute curveball by asking the state’s top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns – threatening to veto it if he didn’t like her assessment.

“You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people,” Cuomo said on WAMC radio. “California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.”

But Underwood’s boss, Attorney General Tish James, later released a statement amid the Monday-night vote arguing that the bill is legally sound.

“The legislation is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for driver’s licenses. If this bill is enacted and challenged in court, we will vigorously defend it,” she said…

President Trump Cuts Aid To Honduras, Guatemala And El Salvador Over Migrants – Financial Times

President Donald Trump is withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador because he believes that the three Central American countries are not doing enough to stem the flow of illegal migrants into the US.

The state department confirmed that the administration had informed Congress it would stop the aid. Two congressional aides said the administration said it was redirecting $550m in aid lawmakers had earmarked in the 2017 and 2018 budgets.

The move came three months after Mr Trump had warned that he would cut aid to the countries. “We stopped payment to Honduras, to Guatemala, and to El Salvador,” he said in March. “We were paying them tremendous amounts of money, and we’re not paying them any more because they haven’t done a thing for us.”…

Comcast Launches Eye Control For The TV, An Aid For Physically Disabled Viewers – Deadline

Comcast has launched a feature enabling viewers with physical disabilities like spinal cord injuries or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) the ability to navigate their television using only their eyes.

Forced Organ Harvesting In China Has Taken Place ‘On A Significant Scale’, Independent Tribunal Finds – Epoch Times

An independent people’s tribunal has unanimously concluded that prisoners of conscience have been – and continue to be – killed in China for their organs “on a significant scale,” after a year-long investigation.

“Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale,” said chair of the tribunal, Sir Geoffrey Nice QC in a judgment delivered on June 17 in London.

The panel further concluded that adherents of the banned spiritual practice Falun Gong have been one of the main sources of organ supply.

Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline consisting of meditation exercises and moral teachings based on truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, has been brutally persecuted by the Chinese regime for the past two decades.

Adherents of the practice have been thrown into prisons, labor camps, and brainwashing centers, where many have been tortured in an effort to force them to renounce their faith…

Opioid Manufacturer Insys To Pay $225 Million Settlement After Admitting To Bribing Doctors – Big League Politics

One of America’s biggest opioid manufacturers is set to pay a massive federal penalty after getting nailed for bribing doctors to prescribe their dangerous and highly addictive fentanyl painkillers.

The distribution scheme of Insys Therapeutics, that pushed potent opiates into the hands of patients that did not need them, has been described as a driving force behind America’s ongoing public health epidemic stemming from use of the drugs.

Written by Tlaleng Mofokeng, founder of an organization called Nalane for Reproductive Justice, the article calls prostitution to be decriminalized and for children to “fund public campaigns to decrease stigma.”

“The clients who seek sex workers vary, and they’re not just men. The idea of purchasing intimacy and paying for the services can be affirming for many people who need human connection, friendship, and emotional support.

Mexico Releases The Details Of Its Immigration Deal With Trump – Daily Caller

The Mexican government released the details of the side agreement it made with the Trump administration, pledging to take on additional measures to stop the flow of illegal immigrants reaching the U.S. border.

Details of the side agreement come after the White House and Mexico City reached a sweeping immigration deal on June 7. In return for the U.S. not imposing 5% tariffs on all Mexican products, the Mexican government will deploy up to 6,000 National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala, and allow more U.S. asylum seekers to stay within the country.

President Donald Trump told media at the time that Mexico had agreed to additional terms, but he would allow their government to release the information at their discretion.

DemoNazis Introduce Bill To Bankrupt Gun Manufacturers With Lawsuits – Big League Politics

According to a Zero Hedge report, this week Democrats introduced legislation in both the House and Senate that would make gunmakers liable for firearms-related crimes.

This bill, The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, would repeal The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 that protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits. Lawmakers from two of America’s most anti-gun states, California and Connecticut are leading the charge.

Adam Schiff is one of the elected officials championing this legislation. In a tweet, he said that the “victims of gun violence deserve their day in court.”

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal is also a co-sponsor for this bill. Since the fallout of the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, Blumenthal has been one of the leading voices for gun control in Connecticut.

Federal authorities have been conducting a child pornography investigation for several weeks after they reviewed emailed threats made against Jones that contained links to child pornography websites, according to his attorney Norm Pattis.

Pattis appeared on Jones’ show late Friday afternoon to discuss the incident. But before he did, Jones went on a five-minute, profanity-laced rant announcing the reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of whoever infiltrated the his company’s servers.

“Someone is trying to set me up with child pornography and we’re going to find you,” Jones said.

Aren’t Delirious Democrats Now Accusing Team Obama Of Treason? – John Solomon

The inference, of course, is that it would come from a hostile power such as Russia or North Korea or Iran.

Prices for U.S. imports declined 0.3 percent in May, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today, following an increase of 0.1 percent the previous month.

Paraplegic Man Sues Creepy Porn Lawyer Avenatti For Allegedly Siphoning Off $4 Million Settlement – Daily Caller

A paraplegic former client of Michael Avenatti is suing the attorney for allegedly siphoning off the “vast majority” of a $4 million settlement awarded to the client. The lawsuit is the latest blow to Avenatti, who rose to fame as the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels and was once considered a possible Democratic presidential candidate.

French Billionaires Pledge Nearly $350 Million To Rebuild Notre Dame – Zeto Hedge

In what some might ascribe to a holy week miracle, the interior of Notre Dame was miraculously saved last night by the more than 400 firefighters worker to suppress a devastating fire that destroyed the roof of the 850-year-old cathedral, as well as its iconic spire.

Pinault, who is chairman of Kerring group, the luxury goods powerhouse behind Gucci, Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent, said the money would come from his family’s investment firm, Artemis.

Illegal Alien Accused Of Raping 7-Year-Old Girl In Virginia – Big League Politics

Ramirez was charged with a single count of Rape of a Child younger than 13. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed a detainer on him for failing to appear at an immigration hearing in 2006.

Buttigieg’s chosen target is one of the most decent human beings in politics, who was supportive of Buttegieg both before he revealed he was gay and after.

Indeed, when Buttigieg made his public announcement, Pence, then governor of Indiana went out of his way to praise his achievements as mayor – a bit of political hyperbole since Buttigieg’s city, South Bend, is a violence-ridden mess.

Dozens More Suspected Graves Found Near Notorious Florida Reform School For Boys – BBC

Excavators have found up to another 27 suspected graves near the grounds of a notorious reform school in Florida. Workers hired to clear up a fuel storage site detected new “anomalies” buried near the state-run Dozier School for Boys, officials said.

After Electing Democrat DA, Dallas Decides To Stop Prosecuting Certain Criminal Acts – Big League Politics

Julian Assange has reportedly hired a crack team of expensive lawyers as he prepares to fight extradition to the U.S. tooth and nail.

Wikileaks will apparently pump money into their founder’s upcoming legal battle to fork out hundreds of thousands of pounds for renowned barristers, including Gareth Peirce who represented the Birmingham Six and the Guildford Four.

Assange was bundled out of the Ecuadorian embassy and hauled before Westminster Magistrate’s on Thursday where he was found guilty of failing to surrender to the court. He could face up to 12 months in a UK prison when he is sentenced at Southwark Crown Court, but is wanted in the U.S. for hacking charges and in Sweden for sexual assault offences…

College Students Melt All The Way Down Into Raving Loons Over Vice President Pence Honoring Their Commencement – Right Scoop

“The state of college education today is completely ridiculous. Kids are taking out a quarter million in loans to attend woke warzones where roaming mobs will put them in a hospital if they don’t parrot talking points from the communist manifesto.” – @ComfortablySmug

Georgetown University students overwhelmingly voted this week for a tuition hike, which would pay reparations to the descendants of slaves.

Michigan Farmer Fights Back Against East Lansing Leftists For Violating His Religious Freedom – Washington Free Beacon

A Michigan farmer is challenging city officials after he was banned from a farmer’s market following a Facebook post in which he affirmed the Catholic Church’s teachings on marriage.

Steve Tennes, who runs Country Mill Farms, is challenging the city of East Lansing and seeking a permanent order in federal court on Friday that would allow him to continue participating at the city’s farmer’s market, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom.

City officials targeted Tennes after seeing a Facebook post from 2016, in which he responded to a question about whether his family would use Country Mill Farms to host a same-sex wedding. Steve said they would not host a same-sex wedding because his family believes marriage is between one man and one woman, however he and his family always served everyone at their farm and at the market.

“Starting in August 2010, our family farm had taken our organic apples, peaches, and blueberries 22 miles away from our farm into the city of East Lansing where we had served everyone of all backgrounds for seven years,” Tennes told the Washington Free Beacon…

House Conservatives Form New ‘Anti-Socialism Caucus’ – Daily Wire

The newest U.S. House of Representatives caucus to receive formal approval has been revealed: The House Anti-Socialism Caucus. Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) announced in February via press release that he intended to form the new caucus.

“Socialism is a folly,” Stewart said. “Not only is it doomed to fail wherever it rears its head, it leaves a wake of destruction in lives and freedoms lost. So much time has passed from the fall of the Iron Curtain that many have internalized – or never experienced – [s]ocialism’s ultimate price. If we fail to recall those dangerous times, the primitive appeal of socialism will advance and infect our institutions.”

Stewart’s February press release further noted the age gap between those who seem sympathetic to socialism and those who do not.

Venezuelans took to the streets Saturday to protest an ongoing lack of electricity and clean water, and to demand Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro consider stepping down, accusing the Venezuelan dictator of “wrecking the economy,” according to Reuters.

Power has been unreliable across Venezuela for years, but the situation has degraded markedly in recent weeks after a power station tied to one of the country’s major hydroelectric dams stopped working, plunging parts of the Venezuelan capital city of Caracas into regular blackouts.

Although engineers have attempted to fix the situation, the grid had reportedly been so neglected over the last several decades that restoring full electricity to Venezuelans is not only difficult, it may be dangerous.

Philly Democratic Majority Leader, IBEW Boss And Other Officials Indicted On 116 Counts Of Misusing Union Funds – Washington Free Beacon

One of Philadelphia’s most powerful union bosses and the city’s Democratic majority leader stand accused of embezzling funds from the workers they claimed to represent.

The Department of Justice indicted International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 98 boss John “Doc” Dougherty Jr. and several other union officials, as well as Democratic City Councilman Bobby Henon, on corruption charges. They face 116 counts of misusing of union funds to serve their own interests rather than those of their members.

“When union leaders misdirect the organization’s money for personal gain, they’re breaching their obligation to members – and breaking the law,” Michael T. Harpster, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia division, said in a statement. “Such corruption must not go unchecked. No matter how long it takes, the FBI and our partners will investigate and work to hold accountable unscrupulous union and public officials.”

The indictment accuses the union officials and Henon, a labor official and the city council’s majority leader, of using union coffers as a personal piggybank…

FBI Hid Proof That Hillary’s Emails Were Attacked Multiple Times As Far Back As 2011, But Used A 2016 DNC Incident As their Case For Mueller Probe – Gateway Pundit

The fairy tale that the Russians hacked the DNC’s emails in 2016 in an effort to help candidate Trump win the Presidency led to the corrupt Mueller investigation.

Per a review of evidence provided by the FBI we know that Hillary’s emails were hacked as early as 2011 and Hillary was warned about these attacks. Overall, Hillary and the FBI appear to be covering up the facts.

The Mueller sham is unconstitutional and a crime on numerous counts. The mainstream media (MSM) won’t tell the American people and the world that the entire scam was built on and runs on numerous lies. A recent review of events related to Hillary Clinton’s emails further indicate that the entire Mueller sham was built on a series of lies covered up by the FBI.

Virginia Democrats Want Governor Northam Out By Monday – KTVB

Virginia Democratic lawmakers accelerated efforts to force embattled Gov. Ralph S. Northam to resign by Monday, after he admitted to wearing blackface more than 30 years ago. The renewed push comes as delegates and state senators feared the crisis of confidence could reach a fever pitch and interfere with the passage of critical tax legislation before a Wednesday deadline.

The strategy, according to three Democratic aides with knowledge of Saturday’s discussions, involved Attorney General Mark R. Herring, D-Va., calling for the governor’s resignation – a step Herring took less than two hours after the news conference.

CNN Falsely Labels Virginia Governor Ralph Northam As ‘Republican’ During Segment On Blackface-KKK Yearbook Photo Flap – Fox News

He added, “She’s costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what’s happening is when you have a porous border and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don’t want to give proper border security for political reasons she’s doing a terrible disservice to our country.”…

Winning: January Sees Fastest Rise In Factory Orders Since December, 2017; Manufacturing Activity Edges Higher – Business Standard

The country’s manufacturing sector activity edged higher in January as companies continued to scale up production and employment, driven by the fastest rise in factory orders since December 2017, a monthly survey said Friday.

The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index increased from 53.2 in December to 53.9 in January, indicating stronger improvement in the health of the goods producing sector.

This is the 18th consecutive month that the manufacturing PMI remained above the 50-point mark. In PMI parlance, a print above 50 means expansion, while a score below that denotes contraction.

Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected a modest gain of 172,000 nonfarm jobs, but mainly because hiring in December had seemed so strong. Instead the government slashed its original estimate of new jobs in December to 222,000 from 312,000 as part of an annual update based on newly available information. That’s the largest monthly revision since 2010.

House DemoNazis Reject GOP Proposal To Block Raises For Federal Employees Guilty Of Sexual Misconduct – Washington Free Beacon

House Democrats on Wednesday rejected a Republican proposal to add a provision that would block federal employees who were disciplined for sexual misconduct to receive the same pay raise as the rest of their colleagues.

“During calendar year 2019, no increase in pay as authorized under this Act may be provided to any Federal employee who has been disciplined for sexual misconduct under chapter 75 of title 5, United States Code, or any other provision of law,” read the Republican proposal.

The 55-page ruling by U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in the Nothern District of Texas was issued just one day before open enrollment was set to end this year for “Obamacare,” President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement during his tenure.

O’Connor, in the ruling, agreed with a coalition of Republicans that it was unconstitutional to mandate people buy health insurance and tax those who weren’t in compliance. He said last year’s tax cut bill knocked the constitutional foundation from under “Obamacare” by eliminating a penalty for not having coverage.

Miss Connolly was discovered wearing only a black skirt which was pulled up to her waist at the couple’s £600,000 home in Kinver, West Midlands on December 18 2016.

Jurors were told how Broadhurst may have wanted to ‘teach Natalie a lesson’ after finding out she had been sending topless pictures to another man on social media. The mother-of-one was killed after the couple had spent a day drinking alcohol and taking cocaine before engaging in ‘rough sex’…

Shepherd’s Costume Sold On Amazon Includes ‘Sheep Sex Doll’ – New York Post

A mortified mom sent her 5-year-old to his school’s Nativity play with a shepherd costume she bought online before she realized it came with a blow-up sheep sex doll.

Helen Cox bought son Alfie the $21.65 costume on Amazon for his school Nativity play, and he was delighted it came with a free blow-up sheep. But the mom of two was puzzled when a teacher told Alfie to take the sheep home – until she blew it up and found it had a huge hole in its bottom as well as red lips and eyelashes.

Cox, 46, found the exact same sheep was on sale as a “stag night bonkin’ sheep” and is now devising a way to steal it away from unaware Alfie.

Cox, a psychology student from Scotland, said: “He’s probably in his room right now stuffing Lego in the hole.”

U.S. Steel Industry Booming After Trump’s Tariffs – Washington Examiner

U.S. steel mills have seen almost a 5 percent jump in shipments so far this year, a sign that it’s benefiting from stiff 25 percent tariffs on imports the Trump administration imposed last year.

The American Iron and Steel Institute reported Monday that U.S. mills shipped 8.1 million tons in October, up 4.6 percent from the previous month and up 6 percent from the same period last year. So far this year, the industry has shipped 79.6 million net tons, 4.6 percent more than it had by this point last year.

AISI spokesman Jake Murphy told the Washington Examiner that domestic steel use has increased 1.4 percent so far in 2018, and that “Section 232 has played a crucial role as well,” referring to section of trade law used by the Trump administration to justify the tariffs.

According to U.S. Census Bureau data, U.S. imports of steel mill products declined 11 percent during the first 10 months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017…

Judge Rules Americans Can Secretly Record Public Officials In Victory For Project Veritas – Washington Times

A federal judge ruled Monday that Americans have a right to secretly record their public officials, including police, when they are engaged in their government duties.

“This is not to say that police and government officials have no privacy interests,” she wrote. “However, the diminished privacy interests of government officials performing their duties in public must be balanced by the First Amendment interest in newsgathering and information-dissemination.”

She ruled in favor of two sets of plaintiffs, one of which regularly livestreamed video of police officers performing their duties, and the other James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas specializes in catching public policy figures saying embarrassing things…

Winning: U.S. Ends Reliance On Foreign Oil For First Time In 75 Years – Daily Wire

For the first time in 75 years, the United States exported more oil than it imported, achieving a pledge from President Trump that America can become “energy independence.”

While the U.S. has been a net oil importer since 1949, over the final week of November, U.S. net imports of crude oil and petroleum products fell to minus 211,000 barrels per day (bpd) – which means America exported more than it imported, according to data from U.S. Energy Information and Administration.

Oil production has been booming in the U.S. as the shale revolution swept the nation. America is now the world’s largest producer of petroleum, passing Russia and Saudi Arabia. As the U.S. oil boom spread, the power of OPEC was reduced and gas prices in the U.S. have dropped from the $4+ highs under former president Barack Obama.

Activist Judge Blocks Trump Asylum Changes, Rules Invaders Can Demand Legal Protections Even After Illegal Entry – Washington Times

A federal judge blocked President Trump’s new asylum crackdown policy early Tuesday, ruling that federal law allows anyone – including illegal immigrants who jumped the border – to demand protections once they reach U.S. soil.

State House Bill 258 passed in a 58-35 vote and now moves to the state Senate for consideration. Should the state Senate approve the bill, most abortions in Ohio would be effectively banned.
