ICE Targets Illegals In Sanctuary City Raids – Frontpage
.

.
In a weeklong sweep U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took close to 1,300 illegal aliens into custody, many of whom were arrested in so-called sanctuary cities that harbor illegals and shield them from federal immigration enforcement efforts.

Sanctuary jurisdictions defy U.S. law by, among other things, refusing to honor detainer requests in which ICE asks local jailers to notify the agency before an inmate wanted on immigration charges is released.

A detainer request also asks the jailer to hold the individual for up to 48 hours after when the individual would otherwise be released so ICE can take him or her into custody for processing and possible deportation…

Why Did The City Of Houston Hire A $95,000 Intern? – Mario Diaz

“I have no idea who you are talking about.”

This is the response KPRC 2 Investigates received from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner on Thursday when asked if he knew Marvin Agumagu, a 31-year-old who was put into a $95,000 City of Houston internship position. The mayor on two occasions made it quite clear that he did not know anyone named Agumagu.

Through our investigation, KPRC 2 learned that Turner has crossed paths often with Agumagu in the last three years and was aware of a move to create a publicly funded internship at the airport that would pay him an eye-popping figure for an intern.

Who made the decisions? What will this highly paid intern actually do?

Here is what we know about the hire:

“Could you develop a position?” was the question posed by the City’s Chief Development Officer Andy Icken…

Impeachment: The Democrat Campaign To Re-Elect Trump – Patricia McCarthy

As the release of I.G. Horowitz’s report on FISA abuse, the results of AG Barr’s investigation, and John Durham’s report on the origins of the Russia collusion hoax are about to be made public, the Democratic Party has begun to melt down in true Wicked Witch style.

They are inventing new “crimes” to accuse the president of having committed each week, and each new allegation is sillier than the previous one. The entire collusion with Russia charge, as most people know by now, was fabricated by Hillary Clinton and a vast group of Deep State crooks who believed themselves to be above the law.

So certain that their machinations would insure Hillary Clinton’s victory in 2016, they happily embarked on implementing their “insurance policy,”…

Peruvian President Vizcarra Dissolves Congress Amid Anti-Corruption Push – Winston-Salem Journal

Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra dissolved congress Monday, exercising seldom used executive powers to shut down the opposition-controlled legislature that he accuses of stonewalling attempts to curb widespread corruption.

In a televised address, Vizcarra told the South American nation that he had decided to call new legislative elections after lawmakers proceeded with holding a controversial vote to replace almost all the members of the Constitutional Tribunal.

“We are making history that will be remembered by future generations,” he said. “And when they do, I hope they understand the magnitude of this fight that we are in today against an endemic evil that has caused much harm to our country.”

The stunning turn could spell new instability as Peru grapples with the fallout of the Odebrecht corruption scandal, plummeting faith in public institutions and an inexperienced president struggling to govern…

Former Ukraine PM Mykola Azarov: Hunter Biden Must Be Investigated – Washington Standard
.

Former Ukraine Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has called for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in his role as a board member at a Ukranian gas company during his father’s term as Vice President, in which Hunter was paid handsomely.

“It’s a fact (his directorship and fees) and not made up. It should be investigated so that the ‘i’s can be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed,” Azarov told Reuters, referencing Biden’s role at Burisma Holdings Limited.

Zero Hedge reported:

Two months after he was kicked out of the navy for cocaine use (and before he had sex with his dead brother’s wife, and returned a rental car with a crack pipe to an Arizona Hertz), Hunter – who had no experience in the energy sector, was appointed to the board of Burisma for $600,000 per year…

FBI: Over 5 Times More Killed With Knives Than Rifles – Breitbart

FBI crime stats for 2018 show over five times as many people were killed with knives and/or other cutting instruments than were killed with rifles. The FBI data shows a total 1,515 deaths by knives and/or other cutting instruments vs. 297 deaths by rifle in 2018.

This means the gap between murders with knives vs. murders with rifles has grown since 2017, for which FBI stats showed nearly four times as many stabbed to death as killed with rifles. The number of murders with a rifle hovered around 400 for the year 2017, then dropped to 297 in 2018.

Ironically, over 100 more people were killed with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles in 2018.

It must be noted that the category of rifle includes all kinds of rifles, not just bolt action or semiautomatic, not just pump or lever action. So the gap between knife homicides and rifle homicides or hammer/club homicides and rifle homicides would be even larger if contrasted only with semiautomatic rifles, versus rifles of all kinds…

‘There Is No Climate Emergency’, Hundreds Of Scientists, Engineers Tell U.N. – Washington Times

The European Climate Declaration, spearheaded by the Amsterdam-based Climate Intelligence Foundation [CLINTEL], described the leading climate models as “unfit” and urged UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to pursue a climate policy based on “sound science.”

“Current climate policies pointlessly and grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, reliable electrical energy,” said the Sept. 23 letter signed by professionals from 23 countries.

House DemoNazis Vote To Give Illegal Aliens Healthcare, Leave Veterans Hanging – Big League Politics

On September 26, 2019, House Democrats voted to pass H.R. 3525, the controversial U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act. This bill would effectively give illegal immigrants better healthcare than U.S. veterans and servicemembers.

Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise decried the passage of this bill on September 26th. “House Democrats just voted to prioritize health care for illegal immigrants over health care for our veterans. What a disgrace!,” he said in a tweet.

U.S. Congressman Mark Walker also condemned this vote on his website. He stated, “Earlier this week, I said impeachment was the House Democrats only agenda. I was mistaken. They just passed legislation that will give illegal immigrants better health care records than our veterans and servicemembers.

Federal Judge Rules Catholic Adoption Agency Can Refuse LGBT Parents – Epoch Times

In a victory for religious freedom, a federal judge in Michigan ruled a Catholic adoption agency that contracts with the state will be allowed to refuse to handle adoption requests that would place children with LGBTQ couples.

The judge pointedly noted that in opposing the agency, the state’s attorney general engaged in a “targeted attack” on the agency’s “sincerely held religious belief.”

The ruling came Sept. 26 in a case cited as Buck v. Gordon, which involved Lansing-based St. Vincent Catholic Charities, along with Chad and Melissa Buck, parents of five children with special needs, and Shamber Flore, a former foster child.

St. Vincent has stated that “as a Catholic organization, [it] cannot provide a written recommendation to the State evaluating and endorsing a family situation that would conflict with [its] religious beliefs.” This means it can’t endorse adoption for “unmarried or LGBTQ couples consistent with its Catholic mission.”…

Democrat-Controlled Los Angeles Paid $1.3 Billion In Taxpayer Money To Illegal Aliens Via Welfare – Daily Wire

No wonder Los Angeles can’t handle its homeless problem. Los Angeles County paid nearly $1.3 billion in welfare money during 2015 and 2016 to families of illegal aliens. That number amounts to one-quarter of the total spent on the county’s entire needy population, according to Fox News.

In 2015, more than 58,000 families received $602 million in benefits. The next year, some 64,000 families received $675 million.

The sanctuary county of Los Angeles draws foreigners who enter the United States illegally and now has the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, according to a study from the Migration Policy Institute. ​Illegal aliens in the county are allowed to receive welfare and food stamp benefits.

Lying Sacagawea: Elizabeth Warren Claimed Her Parents Had To Elope Because Of Mother’s Native American Ancestry – Big League Politics

Elizabeth Warren claimed her parents had to elope because of her grandparent’s concerns over her mother’s supposed Native American ancestry while running for Senate in 2010.

Warren has made elaborate claims of Native American ancestry for years, claiming to be as such in law school applications and other professional documents when she potentially stood to benefit from such an ethnic identity.

Her critics doubted the veracity of such claims, and were largely vindicated when Warren released a DNA test that indicated she had 1/1024 Native American ancestry.

Warren apparently initially believed that such a minuscule relation to Native American people was enough to identify as one, a misconception that was corrected when the official Cherokee Nation Secretary of State, Chuck Hoskins Jr, released a statement rebuking her use of Native American identity as a political prop…

Portable Toilet Explodes With Woman Inside, Killing Her Instantly – Crime Online

A Florida woman is dead after a portable toilet exploded while she was inside. Authorities are trying to figure out who she is and what happened to make the toilet explode.

Witnesses said that the “porta-potty” was sitting in front of a residence undergoing construction work. The homeowner said no work was scheduled to be done on that morning.

Authorities are still working to determine the woman’s identity. She was burned too severely to make an identification, the Florida Times-Union reports, but a medical examiner determined that the victim was likely a white female.

Acting ICE Director: ICE Removed More Than 145,000 Criminal Aliens Last Year, Including 10,000 Gang Members – CNS

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made more than 105,000 criminal arrests last year and removed more than 145,000 criminal aliens, “to include the arrests of nearly 10,000 gang members and the removal of another 6,000,” acting ICE Director Matt Albence said Thursday.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Albence warned about the dangers of sanctuary cities, calling it a “public safety matter.”

“We are here today to help the public understand the human cost of sanctuary laws and policies, which ban and prevent local law enforcement agencies from working with ICE to include even the simple sharing of information about criminals already in their custody. Laws and policies like these make us all less safe plain and simple,” he said.

Albence said that 70 percent of ICE arrests are made at local jails and state prisons nationwide, “but we used to make more, and we used to get more criminals off the street before sanctuary laws and policies prevented us from doing so.”…

Iran Has Spent More Than $16 Billion On Terrorism In Recent Years – Washington Free Beacon

ran has spent more than $16 billion during the past several years to fund militant terrorists across the Middle East, cash that was repatriated to the Islamic Republic under the terms of the landmark nuclear deal, according to new disclosures from the Trump administration.

As Iran’s economy teeters on the brink of collapse under the tough sanctions regime imposed by the Trump administration, the Islamic Republic’s authoritarian leadership has spent its limited cash reserves to bolster terror groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas, as well as militant terrorists in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.

The Trump administration is taking a range of steps to thwart what it describes as Iran’s expansionist foreign policy that seeks to establish hardline governments across the region.

A deafening mix of cheers and traditional Indian drums welcomed President Trump to Houston on Sunday at an event dubbed “Howdy, Modi,” in honor of India’s visiting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

On Twitter, Mr. Trump mused over the potential for massive crowds days before traveling to Texas for the event, which purported to be the largest gathering to honor a visiting foreign leader since the pope. And it didn’t disappoint.

The event’s website reported having some 50,000 registered attendees. The mostly Indian-American crowd, many of them dressed in colorful traditional garb, packed the floor and first three levels of NRG Stadium, which was decorated from end-to-end in Indian and American flags…

Hearings Expose How Kamala Harris Used Prosecutorial Power To Benefit Abortion Businesses That Support Her Campaigns – The Federalist

More than four years ago, former California attorney general Kamala Harris launched an investigation into the work of citizen journalists and abortion activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who discovered Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby body parts.

This Wednesday concluded the two weeks of preliminary hearings in San Francisco courtrooms, which revealed the extent to which Planned Parenthood has aggressively fought to deny allegations, cover up evidence, and use their financial influence over politicians like Harris to prosecute Daleiden and Merritt for their work.

The purpose of the preliminary hearings was for the district attorney’s office to show the judge there is enough evidence that Daleiden and Merritt committed crimes of illegal recording, and whether the charges should proceed to a jury trial.

Not only was the district attorney’s office unable to produce evidence of probable cause, however, it instead became increasingly clear that the charges were not brought forth based on a real case but as part of a political prosecution on behalf of Planned Parenthood…

Hypocrisy: Meat-Hating Democrats Descend On Iowa Steak Fry, Grill Up 10,000 Steaks – Daily Wire

Oh the hypocrisy.

Democrats running for the 2020 presidential nomination have been moaning and whining about meat-eaters, who they claim are somehow destroying the environment with their diets. You see, farting cows add methane to the atmosphere and that’s causing global warming, they say.

“Listen, we’ve got to address factory farming,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in February. “Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real,” said the 29-year-old former bartender, who Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has called “the future of the party.”

Trump Administration Threatens To Cut Off Funding To University Programs With Too Much Of A Pro-Islam Bias – Big League Politics

The Trump administration is putting pressure on the University of North Carolina and Duke University to change their joint Middle East studies program or risk losing federal funding.

The Education Department sent the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies a letter on August 29 criticizing the program for disproportionately portraying “the positive aspects of Islam.” The Associated Press reports that the agency demanded that the two universities reform the program by September 22 or lose a grant they’ve been receiving for nearly a decade.

The Education Department claimed in its letter that foreign language and national security have “taken a back seat to other priorities” that have “little or no relevance” to the grant’s principal objectives.

The agency also wrote that the program puts “considerable emphasis” on the “understanding the positive aspects of Islam, while there is an absolute absence of any similar focus on the positive aspects of Christianity, Judaism or any other religion or belief system in the Middle East.”…

New USDA Pork Rules To Raise Production By 12.5% As China Set For Big Agricultural Buys – Epoch Times

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) updated the rules for its 52-year old inspection system at hog slaughterhouses that will increase production by 12.5 percent, just as China is set to make big agricultural purchases.

The USDA spent 22 years trying to update the swine slaughter component of the 1967 Wholesome Meat Act that still relies on antiquated “poke and sniff” inspection method to prevent disease transmissions into the nation’s food supply.

The Trump administration fought a concerted battle with the United Food and Commercials Workers International Union that claimed changing the regulatory protocol would reduce USDA eyes-on inspections. But the union’s real goal was preserving five decade limitation on slaughter line speeds to a maximum of 1,106 hogs per hour.

Western Farm Press estimated that as soon as American pork processing plants adopt the “New Swine Slaughter Inspection System” rules, U.S. production capacity will increase by 12.5 percent…

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.

“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.

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.

On Monday afternoon, former Gov. Bill Weld (R-Mass.) announced his candidacy for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination. In 2016, he ran for vice president on the Libertarian ticket with former Gov. Gary Johnson (R-N.M.). In that race, Weld infamously told voters to pull the lever for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I’m here vouching for Mrs. Clinton,” Weld told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow days before Trump was elected. He claimed not to be endorsing Clinton, since he was running against her, but the way Weld warned about Trump and the way he said he vouched for Clinton certainly sent a clear message about whom he’d rather see in the White House.

He also endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, has long supported abortion, and was named U.S. Ambassador to Mexico by President Bill Clinton…

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

An El Salvadoran illegal alien living in Virginia was arrested late last week for raping a seven-year-old child.

“On Thursday, Culpeper Sheriff’s Detectives arrested Oscar Ramirez, 33, of Culpeper, for the rape of a seven-year-old girl, which reportedly occurred between April 6 and 7,” according to WTVR.

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. America’s illegal immigration process often allows for illegal aliens caught crossing the border to be set free while they await hearings in immigration courts.

“He will be deported to his home country of El Salvador after his legal proceedings in Culpeper are completed and any potential prison sentence has been served,” the report said.

Ramirez’s arrest comes amid tension in Washington, D.C. over border security…

The famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France was engulfed in flames on Monday leading to the collapse of the structure’s main spire. The intense flames leaped out from two of its bell towers minutes before the spire collapsed, and later spread to one of the cathedral’s iconic rectangular towers.

A church spokesman told French media that all of Notre Dame Cathedral’s frame is burning after the spire collapsed. “Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,” spokesman Andre Finot said.

The Vigilante From South Bend – David Horowitz

Pete Buttigieg is the latest star to emerge from Democrats’ 2020 pack, which is no surprise since he exhibits all the tropes we have come to associate with this party in the era of its Trump derangement.

On the evidence just of his attacks on Vice President Mike Pence, Buttigieg is a shameless liar, a calculating character assassin and an anti-religious/anti-free speech bigot, motivated by a virulent hatred of his political opponents, especially those who have been good to him like Pence.

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. Yet, even after Buttigieg’s outrageous attacks, Pence has not had an unkind word to say about him…

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.

The school became infamous for the alleged abuse and murder of children over its 111-year history. It was one of the largest institutions for young offenders in the US, eventually closing in 2011.

If confirmed, the latest finds would bring the total number of known burials on the campus to 82 – although researchers believe more than 100 children could have died at Dozier School.

Contractor New South Associates was preparing to clean up pollution in Marianna, Florida, using ground-penetrating radar in March when workers found what could be more burial sites near the school.

Stratolaunch, World’s Largest Aircraft By Wingspan, Makes Historic First Flight – Fox News

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

Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot is firmly dedicated to ending “mass incarceration” so much so, in fact, that the Democrat is going to let many criminal offenders back onto the streets.

Creuzot announced on Thursday that his office will be letting criminals off the hook if they commit offenses such as low-level drug possession, theft, and criminal trespass. Law enforcement will be more focused on promoting social justice than protecting property rights under Creuzot’s plan.

He will also be targeting the bail bonds system and reducing probation sentences. Creuzot does not want criminals to “sit in jail not because they pose an identifiable danger to the community, but because they cannot pay their fee to go home” so they will be let out on the streets instead.

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.

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.

Socialist Hellhole Update: Venezuelans March For Electricity And Water, And Against Maduro – Daily Wire

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.

San Francisco Has More Drug Users Than High School Students – Hot Air

The San Francisco Chronicle reported last week that the city now has more hardcore drug addicts living there than it does high school students.

San Francisco has more drug addicts than it has students enrolled in its public high schools, the city Health Department’s latest estimates conclude.

There are about 24,500 injection drug users in San Francisco – that’s about 8,500 more people than the nearly 16,000 students enrolled in San Francisco Unified School District’s 15 high schools and illustrates the scope of the problem on the city’s streets…

“There is an opioid epidemic in this country, and San Francisco is no exception,” Deputy Director of Health Dr. Naveena Bobba said.

The problem is particularly visible in the Tenderloin, where police reported more than 600 arrests for drug dealing last year. And where 27 suspects were booked into County Jail for dealing drugs in the first 20 days of the new year…

The Pentagon announced Sunday the deployment of 3,750 more active-duty troops to the U.S. border with Mexico. The deployment will raise the total active duty forces to approximately 4,350.

“Additional units are being deployed for 90 days, and we will continue to evaluate the force composition required to meet the mission to protect and secure the southern border,” the Pentagon said.

Roughly 2,400 active duty forces are currently at the border. A large number are going home and being replaced by the new deployment. The announcement comes as a congressional committee seeks to reach a deal on border security funding to avert another partial government shutdown.

President Trump has hinted at declaring a national emergency if the deal doesn’t include funds for a border wall. The lack of an agreement on funding for a border wall closed portions of the government for 35 days…

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.

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

She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically, she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this.”

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.

According to the survey, the increase in factory orders was the strongest seen in 13 months. Besides, favourable economic conditions, strengthening demand and sales growth also picked up in January…

MAGA Update: U.S. Gains 304,000 Jobs At Start Of 2019 As Firms Continue To Hire At Blistering Pace – Marketwatch

The U.S. gained 304,000 new jobs in January – the biggest increase in almost a year – in another show of strength for an economy that’s still growing soundly even in the face of more headwinds.

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.

Still, the economy has added an average of 241,000 jobs a month since November, marking one of the best stretches during a nearly 10-year-old economic expansion…

As Petition Nears 300K To Impeach Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Evidence Exposes Her Lies About Residency To Run For Office – Washington Standard

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.

Republicans attempted to add the provision to legislation proposed by Democrats to give federal workers a 2.6 percent raise. The Republican proposal was to simply stipulate that workers disciplined for sexual misconduct be exempt from the raise.

“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.

Despite receiving support from 17 Democrats, the proposal was rejected in a 216-206 vote.

Federal Judge In Texas Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional – USA Today

A federal judge in Texas ruled late Friday that core aspects of the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as “Obamacare”, was unconstitutional, a win for Republicans and the Trump administration that is sure to leave those insured under the system in uncertain territory.

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.

“The court today finds the individual mandate is no longer fairly readable as an exercise of Congress’s tax power and continues to be unsustainable under Congress’s interstate commerce power,” O’Connor wrote…

Then, on Sept. 28, Trump signed another “minibus” law funding the departments of Defense, Labor, Health and Human Services (HHS) and Education through the end of fiscal year 2019.

“With the signing of this package today, Congress will have enacted the majority of all discretionary spending for the year – 75% – prior to the end of the fiscal year, an accomplishment that hasn’t occurred in over two decades,” House Appropriations Chairman Rodney Ferlinghuysen (R.-N.J.) said when Trump signed that second “minibus.”…

.

.
Executives at Johnson & Johnson (J&J) knew for decades that the talcum in its baby powder contained asbestos and failed to tell federal regulators, according to a Reuters report.

Reuters examined documents, trial depositions and trial testimony that reportedly shows that from at least 1971 to the early 2000s, J&J executives, mine managers, scientists, doctors and lawyers knew that the company’s raw talc and finished powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos.

The people involved discussed the problem and how to address it, while failing to disclose it to regulators or the public, Reuters found. The reporting also shows how J&J sought to influence regulators’ plans to limit asbestos in cosmetic products with talc…

.

.
President Trump said Friday that he’s tapped Mick Mulvaney to be acting chief of staff at the White House, adding yet another role to the man who’s already his budget director. Mr. Mulvaney will take over for current Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is leaving at the end of the year. The White House said there is no time limit on the role.

“He’s the acting chief of staff, which means he’s the chief of staff. He got picked because the president liked him they get along,” an official told reporters.

Never-Trumper Rag The Weekly Standard Goes Belly-Up – Breitbart

The Weekly Standard, a conservative opinion magazine turned Never-Trump publication, will shut down, according to a Friday announcement from the publisher’s owner, Clarity Media Group.

Earlier Friday, Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Stephen Hayes sat down with MediaDC chairman Ryan McKibben to discuss the magazine’s fate. Hayes sent a letter to employees notifying them of this morning’s meeting with McKibben, saying he was “not sure what today will bring”

“This is a volatile time in American journalism and politics,” Hayes’ letter to staffers read. “Many media outlets have responded to the challenges of the moment by prioritizing affirmation over information, giving into the pull of polarization and the lure of clickbait.”

The magazine will post its final edition on December 17.

“All good things come to an end. And so, after 23 years, does The Weekly Standard,” co-founder Bill Kristol wrote on Twitter…
