ISIS CLAIMS DEADLY ATTACK ON PARIS POLICE, SAYS GUNMAN BELGIAN.
April 21, 2017
by Bridget Johnson
The Islamic State quickly claimed responsibility for a shooting on Champs-Élysées today that claimed the life of one police officer and wounded another.
In a statement citing a “security source,” the ISIS-linked Amaq News Agency said the gunman was “Abu Yusuf,” a Belgian fighting for ISIS.
According to France24, the attack targeted a police car that was waiting at a red light near the Franklin Roosevelt metro station. Police presence has been heavy in the area as France is under a state of emergency until at least July due to past terror attacks.
Two policemen were also wounded in the attack and the terrorist was killed. French President Francois Hollande confirmed that the attack was terrorism.
Police were searching the home of the gunman east of Paris, France24 added. French interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told reporters “an automatic weapon was used against police, a weapon of war.” Shortly after 9 p.m., Brandet said, a car pulled up alongside the police cruiser and “a man immediately got out and opened fire on the police car.”
Police said a second suspect may be at large.

Bernie Sanders: Rich People Shouldn’t Own Too Many Yachts, Cars. He Owns Three Houses.
BY: BEN SHAPIRO
APRIL 21, 2017
Senator Bernie Sanders (Loonbag-VT) is 75 years old, so perhaps he can be forgiven for his forgetfulness these days. But on Thursday evening, he tweeted out this whopper:
Sanders, of course, owns three houses: one in Burlington, Vermont; one in Washington, D.C.; and a third vacation home worth $600,000 on the beach on the Lake Champlain Islands. Here’s what Sanders’ wife, who reportedly wrecked a college in Vermont through excessive spending but received a $200,000 severance package, had to say about that vacation home:
We've been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne's Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.
Sanders also paid just a 13.5 percent effective tax rate in 2014.
People find it odd that the greatest proponents of socialism seem to live in high style. The Castros are worth at least a billion dollars. Stalin lived the high life while his people starved in the Soviet Union. Hugo Chavez’s second-oldest daughter is worth in excess of $4 billion; Chavez’s family owns 17 estates in the country. Current socialist leader Nicolas Maduro is also in the money.
Socialism is fine for those at the bottom. It’s those at the top who really benefit, though, from just a few too many pudding cups. But they won’t be giving those up anytime soon.
GUARDIAN REPORTER: THERE ARE TWO AMERICAS, A ‘FRONT ROW AND THE BACK ROW’…AND YES–TRUMP EXPOSED IT.
April 19, 2017 by Matt Vespa
On Sunday, CNN’s Brian Stelter sat down with The Guardian’s Chris Arnade, who, along with other notable journalists like the Atlantic’s Molly Ball and the Washington Examiner’s Salena Zito, ventured into rural America to speak with people about their hardships, their lives, and their futures. It wasn’t pretty. Arnade told Stelter that there are two Americas, a “front row and a back row,” which was exposed by Trump.
He said the front row is the elite, who define themselves through their careers, whereas the back row is made up of folks, most of whom have cobbled together an education past highs school through community colleges and smaller state schools. They work with their muscles rather than their minds. This educational divide, in Arnade’s view, has almost created two separate countries that view and react to things differently.
When Stelter asked him if he was exposing media elitism, Arnade said yes, though it’s not intentional.
“I don’t think anybody in the front row are bad people in aggregate, I just think, you know, that they’ve been detached. And they don’t realize they’re detached,” he said.
Arnade also said that these people, who the elites often regarded as country bumpkins, are tuned into the news, though it may not be what the editorial rooms of The New York Times might feel is important—specifically the importance of local news. Remember when President Trump spoke about abandoned factories and inner city decay. Well, that’s real. Arnade noted the scores of empty factories that were the linchpins of these communities and how the elite media didn’t really cover an industrial sector’s importance to these towns and localities. Moreover, when the elite media did cover their issues, it was in a way that the locals felt was widely inaccurate. Arnade credits this as a reason why these communities feel that the media is against them.
Prior to Election Day 2016, Arnade had logged 100,000 miles covering these communities and as he noted, found that “Make America Great Again” does resonate since they’ve been on the short end of the economic stick for decades (via Guardian/Arnade):
A lot of the US is like that. I have seen it all over, when I put 100,000 miles on my car before the election. I have heard and seen the frustrations of countless people – of all races and faiths – in wildly different places, from Nebraska to Louisiana.To get out beyond successful neighborhoods in DC, New York City and the elite college campuses – beyond where prevailing socio-political opinions are made – is to see another America.
It isn’t a more “real” America – a glib and offensive cliche – it is simply a different one. It is an America that values and experiences different things, emphasizing local community and faith, rather than career or educational status. It is an America that has been on a downward trajectory for decades, hurt by the loss of jobs and with downtowns emptied of energy and filled with drugs. It has made staying in these communities harder.
In this America hope is fading, not growing. People’s lives are a constant tangle of changing and uncertain jobs. The path that offers a way out – education – requires threading a narrow needle of opportunities from an early age. If that small chance is missed it means a lifetime of feeling looked down on by the “other America.”
In these towns, “America already is great” rings hollow and offensive. Trump exposed and exploited that, coming into these communities with a simple and angry message – one that effectively said: “This ain’t working for you. So let’s knock it all over!”
At the same time, Arnade also found the Trump coalition is diverse. In Youngstown, Ohio, Arnade ran into Bill Golec, 60, a police officer who also repairs lawn mowers on the weekend. He’s a lifelong Democrat who voted Republican for the first time because he couldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
“Something has to change. These people on welfare, they’re living better than what I am,” he said to Arnade. “I am working two jobs. I like what Trump is doing with the auto factories. We need jobs here, in the United States.”... (Read More...)
HA: LOOK WHAT DEMOCRATS WANT BERNIE TO DO NOW.
April 19, 2017 by Michael Lee
In the wake of a devastating result in the 2016 presidential election, the Democrat Party has been forced to do some soul searching. Improving their message may be an uphill climb, and not only at the presidential level. Democrats also failed to regain a majority in the House and the Senate, while continuing their downhill spiral in state legislatures all across the country. At this point, the Democrat Party is in crisis mode.
For awhile, it seemed like the party wasn’t learning its lesson. Democrats blamed everyone from Russian hackers to racism for their 2016 defeat, proving how out of touch the party had become. However, the new direction the party is embracing may not be much better.
From The Hill:
Democrats previously reticent to welcoming Sen. Bernie Sanders into their fold are coming around.
More than a dozen Democrats interviewed by The Hill say the Vermont Independent has become a powerful and welcome voice for a party struggling to find its identity after a devastating defeat in 2016.
While misgivings remain about giving too much leadership to a politician who technically isn’t a Democrat, a clear warming trend is on the rise.
Although the socialist firebrand surprised pundits with a spirited campaign against Hillary Clinton, his message is unlikely to connect with the majority of Americans. His base of support was young college students, a demographic that trends more conservative as they age. Nevertheless, party leaders seem ready to embrace his brand of liberalism for the future:
“I talk to a lot of people who now believe that Democrats nominated the wrong candidate, and they can’t say for sure that Bernie would have won, but they know Bernie was more in tune with the wavelength of the American people [than Clinton],” he said. “He was an agent of change. Clinton was not.”
The push further left could prove to be a fatal one for Democrats. After all, nobody within the party seems to be considering the fact that Americans just weren’t fond of Hillary Clinton. It wasn’t Sanders’ message that connected with Democrat primary voters, but the fact that he was an alternative to an unpopular candidate.
Of course, the prospect of a Democrat Party pushing a socialist agenda is a scary one. As liberal policies continue to do damage to the economy, it will be vital for moderate Democrats and Republicans to push back against the new direction of the Democrat Party.
Shifting left isn’t just bad for the party, it’s bad for the country. In their desperation, Democrats seem willing to make that mistake.Source: Allen West
CONSERVATIVE VERSUS LEFT-WING TAX PROTESTS.
April 19, 2017 by Daniel Greenfield
A conservative tax protest is a protest that taxes are too high, too onerous or illegal. A left-wing tax protest is a demand for more taxes on someone else. Or, in this case, a baseless accusation that someone else isn’t paying enough taxes.
It’s hard to think of a better way to summarize the fundamental differences between conservatives and the left when it comes to big government.
Conservatives protest for more freedom. Leftists protest for less freedomConservatives protest for more freedom. Leftists protest for less freedom. Conservatives want to keep their earnings. Leftists are convinced that all their utopian projects don’t have enough money from the money tree because the “rich” aren’t losing enough of their income to big government.
Conservatives want fewer chains. Leftists insist that the problem with the chains is that not everyone is chained down hard enough.

MR. PRESIDENT, FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF REAGAN NOT BUSH
April 16, 2017 by Jeff Crouere In 1986, United States President Ronald Reagan authorized military aircraft to unleash a torrent of bombs in Tripoli, Libya to send a strong message to Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The attack was in response to Gaddafi’s involvement in the terrorist bombing of a Berlin disco that resulted in the death of American soldiers.
After the successful attack, terrorists around the world understood that President Reagan was a serious adversary who would not hesitate to utilize the American military if necessary. Thankfully, Reagan did not follow the bombing with an invasion of Libya or additional military actions in the country. He realized that the military should be used sparingly and only when the national security interests of the United States were threatened.
During his two terms, Reagan rebuilt the American military, improved pay and pride in the armed services and restored our standing around the world. He also signed significant and historic arms control agreements with the Soviet Union and played a major part in the Iron Curtain collapsing, freeing millions of people from the grips of communist tyranny.
Reagan’s presidency followed the motto, “Peace through Strength.” This is one of the phrases that presidential candidate Donald Trump repeated often in his successful campaign, along with the other popular refrain, “America First.” These messages connected with millions of ....(Read More...)
DID TRUMP HACK NORTH KOREA’S MISSILE LAUNCH?
April 16, 2017 by Monica Showalter
With the pathetically humiliating failure of North Korea’s missile launch in the wake of a very big puffy buildup, the shark tank must be working overtime over in Pyongyang. You wouldn’t want to be one of the North Korean minions who worked on that wretched fizzle-out that has humiliated the vicious little dictator on the world stage. He gets mean when the world is laughing.
And what a coincidence, it happened as Vice President Pence makes his way to South Korea.
And more interesting still, an intriguing leak of sorts has come to light: That the U.S. hacked the launch, ensuring its failure. It comes from former British foreign secretary Malcolm Rifkind, speaking with the BBC in a buried lede...(Read More...)
EGYPT’S COPTIC CHRISTIANS CANCEL EASTER CELEBRATIONS AFTER PALM SUNDAY BOMBINGS
April 16, 2017 by Katie Pavlich
Churches in southern Egypt have canceled Easter Sunday celebrations in order to mourn the victims of dual suicide attacks on Palm Sunday. Dozens of worshipers were killed.
Christians in the region have been under attack by ISIS in recent years, suffering more than 40 attacks. According to the State Department, ISIS is waging a genocide on Christians throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
BANGLADESH FAMILY: ‘VOGUE’ MODEL KILLED FOR REFUSING TO WEAR ISLAMIC GARMENTS.
April 10, 2017 by Edwin Mora
Muslim extremists murdered a Vogue cover model in Bangladesh for not wearing Islamic clothing, the victim’s family alleged after the authorities ruled the late 21-year-old’s death a suicide.“We primarily suspect it is a suicide case,” Zillur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Shah Makhdum Police Station, told the Daily Star from India, referring to Raudha Athif, the young model from Maldives.
Daily Mail reports, “An autopsy report carried out in Bangladesh ruled her death a suicide before her burial on Saturday. But her brother has since insisted that Raudha, who was Muslim, was murdered and that her death was made to look like a suicide.”
Raudha’s father and brother have dismissed the suggestion that she took her own life.
The Rajshahi Medical College Hospital conducted the autopsy after Bangladeshi authorities reportedly recovered Raudha’s body around midday last week, reveals the Daily Star.
Her classmates reportedly found Raudha, a second-year student at the Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi city, hanged in her dorm room last Wednesday.
Mohamed Athif, the victim’s father, is among the family members who have rebuked the autopsy report’s conclusion that the model took her life. Rayyan Athif, Raudha’s 18-year-old brother, has also echoed his father’s doubts.
“There have been a series of murders in Bangladesh which have been staged to look like suicides...(Read More...)
PEW REPORT: HALF OF ALL FEDERAL ARRESTS ARE FOR IMMIGRATION-RELATED CRIMES.
April 10, 2017 by Will Racke
Federal law enforcement is making a higher share of arrests for immigration crimes than ever before, while the number of drug and firearms arrests continues to fall.
A Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that 50 percent of the 165,265 total arrests made by the federal government in 2014 were for immigration-related offenses.
In 2004, that figure was 28 percent.
Drug and firearms arrests, on the other hand, have dropped over the past 10 years. The share of federal arrests for narcotics crimes fell from 23 percent in 2004 to 14 percent in 2014. Gun arrests declined from 7 percent to 4 percent over the same period.
The expanding share of immigration arrests highlights the burden of policing immigration crime, which has grown heavier over the last decade. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which is responsible for any federal crimes involving the illicit crossing of people and contraband across the U.S. border, surpassed the Department of Justice as the government’s top arresting agency in 2007, Pew reported.
Immigration arrests have risen along with the rapid growth of DHS over the past decade. Customs And Border Protection, the agency which oversees the U.S. Border Patrol, had huge increases in staffing during the mid-to-late 2000s, Pew noted. Between 2004 and 2010, the number of Border Patrol agents jumped from 10,819 to 20,558.

FIRST US CITY SET TO SEE COMPLETE OBAMACARE COLLAPSE
April 5, 2017
by Robert Donachie
Knoxville, Tenn., could be the first city in the U.S. where Obamacare completely collapses, leaving tens of thousands of people without the option to buy a subsidized insurance policy.
Humana, the city’s only remaining insurance provider on its Obamacare exchange, announced it is exiting the market in 2018. If that happens, Knoxville citizens will be in a rough spot. Unless another insurance provider fills Humana’s place, some 40,000 people in the Knoxville area will likely be left without the option to purchase an Obamacare-subsidized insurance policy, CNN reports.
Knoxville is illustrative of one of the main problems with Obamacare: It doesn’t promote market-based competition. Insurers pull out of marketplaces where it is not cost-efficient for them to provide services, and, as a result, consumers are left with fewer options at higher prices.

NIKKI HALEY STARES DOWN RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR; ASKS ONE QUESTION THAT LEAVES EVERYONE SPEECHLESS
April 5, 2017 by Michael Lee
Following the tragic chemical attack in Syria that left over 100 dead, many wondered how the United States would react. Since taking office, President Trump has sought to warm relations with Russia. The renewed commitment to improving relations has led the two countries to cooperate in Syria, something that was absent under Barack Obama’s leadership.
Of course, differences still remain between the two powers. Although both countries are committed to defeating ISIS, Russia’s government is a firm backer of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a position not popular in the United States. However, just a few days ago, U.S. officials expressed openness to the possibility of allowing Assad to stay in power. That openness had many questioning how the U.S. would respond to the news.
As it turns out, it didn’t take long for the U.S. to issue a stern response. Just one day after news of the attack broke, Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley condemned the attack in front of the international body. However, it was her stare down of the Russian ambassador that left the room silent...(Read More...)
EX-CIA OFFICER: SURVEILLANCE ‘INTENT WAS FURTHER LEAKAGE, HURT TRUMP ADMIN’…
April 4, 2017 by John Hayward
Scott Uehlinger: Susan Rice Unmasking ‘Abuse of Power’ Violates ‘Spirit of the Law,’ Should Be ‘Further Investigated’
Former CIA operations officer Scott Uehlinger, co-host of The Station Chief podcast, talked about the Susan Rice “unmasking” story with SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily.“I think it’s an issue which deeply concerns people like myself and other people, working-level officers in the intel community,” Uehlinger said. “Even though at this point, there seems to be no evidence of breaking the law, this ‘unmasking’ of people was ill-advised at best. I think it really shows that abuse of power and the fact that many people in the Obama administration were willing to violate the spirit of the laws designed to protect Americans, perhaps rather than the law itself.”
“As a working-level CIA officer, we were always told by upper authority, you’re always told to – and the quote is – ‘avoid the appearance of impropriety,’” he said. “Well, this does not pass that smell test, definitely.”
Uehlinger said another thing that concerns working-level officers in the intelligence and military communities is “the American people, average Americans like myself, are tired of seeing two sets of rules followed by the higher-ups and then the working-level people.”

REPORT: SUSAN RICE REQUESTED UNMASKING OF TRUMP OFFICIALS – VIDEO

The “well-known, high up” Obama intel official who requested the unmasking of members of Trump’s transition team who had been intercepted in unrelated surveillance operations has been unmasked herself. The culprit is none other than Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice, best known for misleading the country about the nature of the Benghazi terror attack:
Eli Lake of Bloomberg News has the scoop:White House lawyers last month discovered that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are...(Read More...)
POTUS TRUMP CALLS OUT MEDIA FOR RUSSIA STORY ‘FAKE NEWS,’ ‘TOTAL SCAM’
April 1, 2017 by Cristina Laila
President Trump ripped the media on Saturday over the Russian controversy. He called out the media for being ‘fake news’ and said the story was a ‘total scam’.
The fake news media just can’t handle the loss. Their queen, Hillary lost the election and instead of admitting that she was a horrible candidate, they perpetuate this false narrative that Trump colluded with the Kremlin to win the election. These are the same media sycophants who helped Obama get elected twice, so naturally they think they control everything.
Reports are now saying that Trump was being surveilled even before he became the GOP nominee so with all of that information collected, where is the evidence of the Russian collusion? They have nothing! The real scandal is that Trump was spied on, his private associates unmasked and this Trump-Russianarrative is a way to distract the public while they work to remove him.
CONGRESS OKS PLANNED PARENTHOOD FUNDING CRACKDOWN, AS PENCE BREAKS TIE
March 31, 2017 by Associated Press
WASHINGTON – Republican legislation letting states deny federal family planning money to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers squeezed narrowly through the Senate Thursday, rescued by an ailing GOP senator who returned to the Capitol after back surgery and a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence.
In Congress’ latest clash mixing the politics of abortion, women’s health and states’ rights, Pence cast the decisive vote in a 51-50 roll call. The tally had been tied after two GOP senators, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski and Maine’s Susan Collins, joined Democrats opposing the measure.
Senate approval sent the legislation to President Donald Trump, who was expected to sign it. The House voted its consent last month.
The bill erases a regulation imposed by former President Barack Obama shortly before he left office that lets states deny family planning funds to organizations only if they are incapable of providing those services. Some states have passed laws in recent years denying the money to groups that provide abortions.
Passage gives Republicans and anti-abortion groups a needed victory...(Read More...)
SCANDAL: FOX NEWS REPORTS WELL-KNOWN, HIGH RANKING OBAMA OFFICIAL ‘UNMASKED’ MEMBERS OF TRUMP TEAM FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES
March 31, 2017 by Ben Shapiro
On Friday, Fox News’ Adam Housely reported that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), head of the House Intelligence Committee, visited the White House in order to view intelligence information without making his source public information. Housely reports that “the surveillance that led to the unmasking started way before Trump was the GOP nominee.” He added, the person who did the unmasking was “very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world, and is not in the FBI. This led to other surveillance, which led to other names being unmasked.” Housely added that this had nothing to do with Russia, but was designed toward “hurting and embarrassing Trump and his team.” Housely said that his own sources were “just frustrated with the politicization of our intelligence agencies.”
That’s not all.
As reported by The New York Times months ago and confirmed by a former Obama administration high-ranking official, it now appears that in the waning days of the Obama era, intelligence officials compiled as much information as they could on Team Trump and handed it over to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
On Friday, NBC News reported:
Obama administration officials were so concerned about what would happen to key classified documents related to the Russia probe once President Trump took office that they created a list of document serial numbers to give to senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, a former Obama official told NBC News.
So, here’s the summation: it appears that members of the Obama administration not only wanted to preserve intelligence from the supposedly grubby hands of the Trump Team, a high-ranking intelligence official under Obama deliberately unmasked members of the Trump transition team in order to embarrass them. And that would only work if there were rumors about nefarious activity without proof of it – unmasking somebody for doing something completely innocuous would mean little publicly. Yet we still have no evidence of nefarious activity from any member of the Trump Team.
That’s a scandal, folks.
And that does require a real investigation.
While the media continue to focus in on Nunes’ visits to the White House, they’re ignoring the content of what he’s saying. Trump should immediately stop jabbering about wiretaps and focus on this: according to Fox News, members of the Obama intelligence community were interested in humiliating him, and they may have violated the law to do it.

WOW! MEXICAN STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CHARGED IN DRUG SMUGGLING SCANDAL IN U.S.
March 30, 2017 by Carter
It is being reported that the Attorney General for the Mexican state of Nayarit, Edgar Veytia was arrested today in California on drug smuggling charges.
The details are still coming to light, but a lot is already known . . .
The Daily Mail via the AP:
An indictment unsealed in New York on Tuesday charges Edgar Veytia with conspiracy to smuggle cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine to the United States from January 2013 to last month. It provides no additional details on the allegations.
Veytia is scheduled to appear in federal court in San Diego on Thursday to determine if he is eligible for bail. He returns April 11 for a hearing to determine if he will be sent to New York to face charges.
Another report from NBC San Diego states in greater detail the volume of drugs attributed to Veytia’s tenure as a drug smuggler:
Between Jan. 2013 and Feb. 2017 the amount of drugs that can be attributed to Veytia for manufacture and distribution is at least one kilogram of heroin, five kilograms of cocaine, 500 grams of methamphetamine and 1,000 kilograms of marijuana, according to documents from the United States District Court of Eastern New York.
Veytia – known by some as “Diablo”, “Eepp”, and “Lic veytia” – will face charges beyond just drug smuggling; grand jury charges also include international conspiracy to illegally import, manufacture, and distribute a number of illicit substances. No statement has been made by Veytia’s attorney Guadalupe Valencia.

PRIEBUS REACTS FARKAS INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION REMARKS — ‘JUST AN INCREDIBLE STATEMENT’
March 30, 2017 by Jeff Poor
Thursday on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reacted to remarks made by Evelyn Farkas, formerly a deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, made on March 2’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
She claimed a rush of intelligence gathering President-elect Donald Trump and his team prior to his swearing in.
Priebus called it an “incredible statement,” but reserved comment until he had an opportunity to “dig into it.”
Partial transcript as follows:
HEWITT: A news story came up last night, Mr. Priebus. Evelyn Farkas, former assistant deputy secretary of Defense a few days ago was on with Morning Joe, and talking to Mika about the end game during the Obama years. She said this, in the 30-second clip.
FARKAS: …that the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about their, the staff, the Trump staff’s dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence. So I became very worried, because not enough was coming out into the open, and I knew that there was more….We have very good intelligence on Russia.
So then I had talked to some of my former colleagues, and I knew that they were trying to also help get information to the Hill.
HEWITT: So Mr. Priebus, I put two clips together.
PRIEBUS: That’s incredible.
HEWITT: React to that for me, would you?
PRIEBUS: Well, I mean, I heard it late last night, so I mean I honestly, I talked to Sean a little bit about it late last night, Spicer, and then we’re going to be meeting on it this morning. It’s just an incredible statement, you know, and how, what it means and what she meant by that, and whether that has anything to do with the issues in regard to surveillance of Trump transition team members is something that we need to figure out this morning and throughout the day. But it certainly is an incredible comment, although I don’t want to add too much into it right now until I have an opportunity to sort of dig into it and figure out the scope of such a statement.
LONDON’S WESTMINSTER TERRORIST RECEIVED GOVERNMENT WELFARE BEFORE ENGAGING IN HIS ATTACK.
March 27, 2017 by Russ Read
Khalid Masood, the radical ISIS terrorist responsible for London’s Westminster terror attack, did not have a job and was receiving government benefits before engaging in his attack.
Masood, 52, was unemployed and living in Birmingham before he killed four people and injured approximately 40 others in Wednesday’s attack. He was also reportedly receiving government benefits, according to The Telegraph.
Born Adrian Ajao, Masood had a violent criminal history, including several knife attacks. He had not previously been convicted for terrorism-related activities, but he was investigated by MI5, the U.K.’s domestic intelligence service, for his part in a terrorist bombing plot in 2010.
Known as a partier in his youth, Masood enjoyed playing soccer while in school. He was the father of four children, two daughters from a relationship in the 1990s, and a daughter and a son with his most recent partner. Masood is also believed to have been married to a Muslim woman at some point in 2004.
Masood’s employment history is spotty, though he is known to have taught English to foreigners. He spent two stints living in Saudi Arabia, the first of which occurred in 2005. Masood claimed to have a degree in economics, according to his resume, as well as a career in sales at a British chemical company.
Terrorists receiving government welfare is a common theme discovered in many post-terror attack investigations.

BIG LEAGUE: ALMOST 100 OF THE FASTEST GROWING COUNTIES BROKE FOR TRUMP.

It was a rural uprising—and it looks like it will remain that way (for now). We have yet to see the consequences that Republicans will have to deal with concerning their retreat from their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, but that’s for another day. Out of the 100 fastest growing counties in the country, based on U.S. Census data, 93 broke for Trump. The counties that are usually Democratic bastions have seen a sharp decrease in their populations. Moreover, even in blue states, the fastest growing counties are firmly in the Trump column. One might say this development is big league (via Lifezette):

TEXAS PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL OPENS MUSLIM PRAYER ROOM
March 21, 2017 by Pamela Geller
For decades we were taught that Christian prayer in schools violated the separation of church and state. Why isn’t this considered a violation of the separation of mosque and state? Why do we see, yet again, Muslims getting special privileges and accommodations that aren’t offered to non-Muslims?
“Prayer Room At Public High School Raises Legal Concerns,” by Mary Lou Lang-Byrd, Daily Caller, March 17, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A prayer room at a Texas high school is raising legal concerns and the state’s attorney general’s office in a letter on Friday to school district’s superintendent indicated the school’s policy should be neutral toward religion.
Liberty High School’s prayer room, which is reportedly dedicated to students who practice Islam, allows the students to pray at the school on Fridays instead of leaving to say their required prayers. The letter cites the school’s own news site, which focused on the prayer room.
In a letter Friday to the the Frisco Independent School District, the Texas attorney general’s office outlined the legal concerns over the prayer room, indicating it may violate the First Amendment’s protection of religious liberty.
“Liberty High School’s policy should be neutral toward religion,” the letter from Deputy Attorney General Andrew Leonie to Superintendent Jeremy Lyons said. “However, it appears that students are being treated different based on their religious beliefs. Such a practice, of course, is irreconcilable with our nation’s enduring commitment to religious liberty.”…
“Reports from Liberty’s news site indicate that the prayer room is not available to students of all faiths. Instead, it appears that the prayer room is ‘dedicated to the religious needs of some students,’ namely those who practice Islam,” the letter reads….
“This is my seventh year at Liberty, my first year it kind of started when a core group of students were leaving campus every Friday for Friday prayer,” said Principal Scott Warstler.
“Their parents would come pick them up, so they may miss an hour and a half to two hours to two and a half hours of school every Friday, so I met with those students and a couple of their parents and suggested if they would be okay if the students were able to lead the prayer at school as a group, and we gave them a space to do that so they didn’t have to be in a car traveling thirty minutes each way on a Friday missing an hour, hour and a half, of class,” said Warstler….
ALAN DERSHOWITZ EXPOSES THE LIBERAL BIAS THAT HELPED BLOCK TRUMP TRAVEL BAN (VIDEO)
March 20, 2017 by Oliver Dollimore
Democrat lawyer, Alan Dershowitz appeared on Fox and Friends to discuss Trump’s travel ban. He explained how the courts are psychoanalyzing President Trump.
Dershowitz started off by saying:
“The idea of focusing so heavily on campaign rhetoric and essentially saying, look, if Obama had issued the very same order with the same words it would be constitutional, but if Trump issues it, it’s unconstitutional because he said some things about Muslims in the run-up to the campaign,”
Dershowitz is a lifelong Democrat and has been very critical of Trump’s Travel ban. However, unlike the rest of the Liberal pundits, he was able to separate policy and actual Constitutional law.
When commenting on the basis of the Hawaii judge’s decision Dershowitz said:
“I actually said that this wasn’t constitutional analysis. It was psychoanalysis. There is precedent in extreme cases where legislators in enacting a statute say things that you can sometimes look to the legislative intent. But I have never heard of a case where the rhetoric of a candidate, ambiguous rhetoric to be sure — because I do not believe this is a Muslim ban —focusing on a country like Iran, the greatest exporter of terrorism, not only no vetting, it sends terrorists out in order to kill Americans.
The highlight of the interview was when Dershowitz commented on how the courts would not have intervened or challenged the Constitutionality of such a decision like this had it been made by Obama...(Read More...)
EXCELLENT: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS STOP TAKING FOOD STAMPS SO THEY WON’T BE DEPORTED
March 18, 2017
by Hank Berrien
According to The Washington Post, a number of illegal immigrant families are pulling their children out of the SNAP program because they feel that enrolling in the program would expose their identities as illegal immigrants, leading to deportation.
Caitlin Dewey, writing for the Post, interviewed Luisa Fortin, a SNAP outreach coordinator in Georgia, who fretted, “I get calls from concerned parents all the time: ‘should I take my kids out of the program?’ They’re risking hunger out of fear … and my heart just breaks for them.”
But as Jazz Shaw writes at Hot Air, there are some problems with Fortin’s perceptions: First, it is against the law for illegal immigrants to collect SNAP benefits. He points out that even if it is the children ostensibly receiving the SNAP benefits, the whole family shares them. Second, Fortin also references families of legal immigrants including green card holders as part of her lament, which makes no sense because they are legally entitled to SNAP benefits and thus have no reason to fear immigration authorities.
Shaw writes, “These people are either getting some terribly bad information from government officials and outreach coordinators like Fortin or there is more to the story which we are not being told. If the desire to “escape scrutiny” stems from the fact that there are others in the household of, shall we say, more dubious legal status, then things begin to make a bit more sense.”
Dewey writes in the Post, “At food banks from Tucson to Baltimore, SNAP enrollment staff who work with immigrants have reported both a new reluctance to sign up for benefits and a paranoid interest in canceling them. Hunger Free America, a national anti-hunger nonprofit, has seen a marked uptick in the number of calls it receives from its partners, asking how to advise newly nervous clients … The Maryland Food Bank has seen its Spanish-language SNAP applications fall from 20 a month to zero.”
Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Dewey, “I don’t think it’s proper to increase the burden on U.S. taxpayers for people whose only claim to them is that they broke our law. These children receive a large amount of benefits because their parents came here illegally.”
BERNIE SANDERS’ CURIOUS CLAIM THAT ‘THOUSANDS WILL DIE’ IF GOP OBAMACARE REPEAL IS PASSED
March 17, 2017 by Rick Moran
Senator Bernie Sanders made the extremely serious claim that “thousands will die” if the GOP Obamacare replacement bill is passed.
His only problem is that he can’t recall where he got that information.
Washington Free Beacon:
Sanders made the claim while speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper but could not provide any specific sources that backed his assertion, instead referring to “studies that have been done.”
“You’ve said if this repeal and replace plan goes forward that thousands of Americans will die,” Tapper said to Sanders. “Where do you get that estimate from?”
“I get that estimate from the fact that studies have been done that people who do not have health insurance, who do not go to the doctor when they should, who do not go to the hospital when they need to go, in fact die,” Sanders said. “And thousands of people die every year because they don’t have health insurance. And if you throw 24 million people off of health insurance, there is no doubt that many thousands of people will die.”
Sanders was referring to the House Republicans’ proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, which the Congressional Budget Office said on Monday would reduce the number of insured Americans by 24 million in a decade.
Tapper also asked Sanders about insurance companies that are refusing to participate in the Obamacare exchanges in many states because...(Read More...)
Do Not Remove
The New World Order and their global subjugation plan, feeds itself on the ignorance of the masses, there are millions of people countering that Marxist subjugation, and one of those organization has spent millions of dollars and time to investigate and develop a very explicit video of what the plot is all about, it’s tactics and their plan. If you are not one of those millions of people who prefer not to be an ignorant, I recommend you see this long Video.
I would like to make some explanations that will facilitate your better understanding of this video: Hitler in Germany was the first fascist government that used the millionaires in his fascist Government effectively. Since then, but much more active in the last 50 years, an elite of bankers are dominating the world to carry out the new world order. In all these years they have learned that only with a fascist/Marxist dictatorship will they be able to do it. With their help, doctrine, and with the great power that the money has given them, allowed them to take control of following key points - education, food production, healthcare, energy, the media and the military force-- to carry it out. If you haven't heard of the plan, that doesn’t mean that hasn’t existed for over fifty years. What that means is that they have manipulated the media and your education to keep you unaware of what is really happening.
