Obama Regime Failed To Check Immigrants Against FBI Databases Before Approving Them For Citizenship


Via Washington Times:

Some 175 immigrants were approved for citizenship even though their names weren’t properly run through the FBI’s name-check databases, potentially missing red flags that may have disqualified them from naturalization, the Obama administration admitted this weekend.

Homeland Security officials blamed computer code for the problem, which affected about 15,000 applications in total.
The problem was significant enough that the government halted all naturalization ceremonies already in the pipeline and banned U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers from approving new citizenship applications beginning on Nov. 29, when officials acknowledged the problem in an internal email that was later obtained by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

Sham U.S. Embassy That Issued Illegal Visas Operated For A Decade In Ghana


Via Fox News:

An organized crime ring operated a “sham” U.S. embassy in Ghana that issued illegally obtained visas for about a decade, the State Department confirmed Sunday.

The building in Accra, Ghana, flew a U.S. flag every Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning. And inside the building was a picture of President Obama and signs suggesting visitors were indeed inside a real U.S. embassy, the agency said.

The purported organizers obtained blank documents to doctor and forge. The fake embassy was staffed by imposter consular officers who were in fact Turkish citizens who spoke English and Dutch.

The operation even advertised its services through fliers and billboards and charged customers as much as $6,000 — with options to buy fake supporting documents such as phony birth certificates and bank records.

4 Resign From Veterans Facility After Oklahoma Veteran With Maggots In Wound Dies


Just despicable.

TALIHINA, Okla. – Four staff members have resigned from a southeastern Oklahoma veterans facility rather than face the possibility of getting fired, after a resident was found to have maggots in a wound.

Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs executive director Myles Deering said the maggots were discovered while the patient was alive at the facility in Talihina, about 130 miles southeast of Tulsa. Deering said the maggots were not the cause of his death.

Deering said the veteran came to the center with an infection and died of sepsis, the Tulsa World reported.

The agency said a physician’s assistant and three nurses, including the director of nursing, resigned after an investigation was conducted. Spokesman Shane Faulkner said all four chose to resign before the termination process began.

City And U.S. Gov’t Ask Court To Dismiss Lawsuit Against Them By Family Of Kate Steinle


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The U.S. government and the City of San Francisco are asking Kate Steinle’s family to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit in a hearing on Friday.

Kate Steinle was shot and killed in July of 2015 on Pier 14 along San Francisco’s waterfront. Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant, has been charged in the murder.

Lopez-Sanchez was released from the San Francisco City Jail in Apil.

The family of Kate Steinle filed the federal lawsuit in May of 2016 against former San Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement, and the Bureau of Land Management.

BREAKING: Italian PM Renzi Projected To Have Suffered Heavy Defeat In Key Referendum


Pro-EU guy bites the dust, as Italy is looking to break away too. Renzi visited the U.S. just before our election and was pushing for Hillary.

Via Sky News:

Italian PM Matteo Renzi has suffered a heavy defeat in a key referendum on constitutional reform, according to a projection.

The projection by the Piepoli Institute/IPR for state broadcaster RAI estimated 57-61% will vote “No”, compared to 39-43% for “Yes”.

The projection points to an even wider margin of defeat for Mr Renzi than was suggested by three exit polls released immediately after polls closed.

Mr Renzi had staked his future on a “Yes” vote, vowing to resign if voters rejected his plans to reduce the role of the country’s Senate and take back powers from regional authorities.

He is due to address the nation at around midnight local time (11pm UK time).

Opposition parties were quick to call for Mr Renzi to go.

“Renzi is going to go and with him the powerful lobbies who were also defeated”, Renato Brunetta, the parliamentary leader of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right Forza Italia party.

Matteo Salvini, the head of the Northern League party, said Mr Renzi should quit “in the coming minutes” and called for early elections.

Opposition parties denounced the proposed changes as dangerous for democracy because they would have gotten rid of important checks and balances on executive power.

Spearheaded by the populist Five Star Movement, the biggest rival to Mr Renzi’s Democratic party, the “No” campaign took advantage of the PM’s declining popularity, a struggling economy and problems caused by tens of thousands of migrants arriving from Africa.

The vote is a major victory for Five Star leader Beppe Grillo, who had urged Italians to follow their gut instincts.

If Mr Renzi resigns, it could plunge Italy into political turmoil and cause economic instability in the struggling eurozone country.

The result is another blow to the European Union, which is struggling to overcome a number of crises and was keen for Mr Renzi to continue his reform drive.

Turbulence on the markets also looks inevitable.

Some analysts fear a deeper crisis of investor confidence that could derail a rescue scheme for Italy’s most indebted banks, triggering a wider financial crisis across the eurozone.

Obama Regime Denies Easement For Dakota Access Pipeline…


Two years ago, the project was green lighted, social justice warriors appear and the pipeline becomes a national and environmental crisis.

Via Washington Times:

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it won’t grant an easement for the Dakota Access oil pipeline in southern North Dakota.

Corps spokeswoman Moria Kelley said in a news release Sunday that the administration will not allow the four-state, $3.8 billion pipeline to be built under Lake Oahe, a Missouri River reservoir where construction had been on hold.

Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said her decision was based on the need to “explore alternate routes” for the pipeline’s crossing.

The route has been the subject of months of protests by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and others, who have argued the pipeline threatens a water source and cultural sites.

The company constructing the pipeline, Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners, and the Morton County Sheriff’s Office didn’t have immediate comment.

The federal government has ordered people to leave the main encampment, which is on Army Corps of Engineers’ land and is close to the construction site, by Monday.

Donald Trump Threatens To Tax Companies That Move Jobs Abroad


WASHINGTON — Donald Trump warned US companies moving to Mexico will face “retribution” under his Administration in a Sunday morning tweet storm.

Fresh off his win of keeping 1,000 Carrier jobs in Indianapolis, Trump reiterated a campaign pledge to slap goods imported from Mexico with a 35 percent tariff.

“The U.S. is going to substantialy (sic) reduce taxes and regulations on businesses, but any business that leaves our country for another country fires its employees, builds a new factory or plant in the other country, and then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. without retribution or consequence, is WRONG!,” the President Elect tweeted in the 6 o’clock hour.

Neil Cavuto Levels Obama for Blaming Hillary’s Loss on Fox News

Obama blamed Hillary’s loss on ‘Fox News being on in every bar and restaurant’. He’s looking at effect rather than cause. The reason it’s on is, as Neil Cavuto notes, the anger at Obama’s policies and the desire not to solidify his legacy with Hillary Clinton.

Trump Targets Another Company, Economic Wizard Bernie Sanders Howls About Taxpayers Subsidizing Corporations…


Bernie, it was the policies and regulations of the current administration and Congress that started the job exodus.

Via Reuters:

President-elect Donald Trump drew a rebuke from former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday, after turning his attention to another Indiana company planning a move to Mexico.

“Rexnord of Indiana is moving to Mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers. This is happening all over our country. No more!” Trump said in a Friday night Twitter post.

Rexnord Corp (RXN.N), an industrial supplier based in Milwaukee, announced plans in October to move a bearing plant, and its 300 jobs, from Indianapolis to Mexico, employees told the Indianapolis Star at the time.

Company representatives on Saturday did not respond to a request for comment on Trump’s tweet.

The Republican, who takes office on Jan. 20, warned on Thursday of consequences for companies that move jobs out of the United States but did not specify what they would be.

Trump, who campaigned on promises to keep manufacturing jobs from fleeing the country, claimed credit for a deal in which Indiana state officials agreed to give United Technologies Corp (UTX.N) $7 million worth of tax breaks to encourage the company to keep around 1,000 jobs at its Carrier unit in Indianapolis instead of hiring in Mexico.

The agreement was less than a complete victory for Trump, as the air conditioner maker will still send an estimated 1,300 jobs there.

The deal does nothing to prevent other employers from shipping work out of state and has been criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike who call it corporate welfare.

Sanders, who attacked U.S. trade policy in his race against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, said Trump’s deal with Carrier set a “very dangerous precedent” of having taxpayers subsidize multi-billion dollar corporations to “beg them” to keep jobs in the country.

Journalist’s Tell-All On Mobster Tied To JFK Assassination Might Have Gotten Her Killed


Via NY Post:

On the night before her shocking death, Dorothy Kilgallen, a star panelist on the hit TV game show “What’s My Line?” correctly guessed the occupation of a mystery guest: a woman who sold dynamite.

The glamorous, razor-sharp Kilgallen delighted viewers, but behind the scenes, the dogged and courageous reporter was hot on the trail of the biggest story of her life: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The morning after that show, on Nov. 8, 1965, the 52-year-old newspaper columnist hailed by The Post as “the most powerful female voice in America” was dead in her Manhattan town house. Her body was found sitting up in a bed, naked under a blue bathrobe, with the makeup, false eyelashes and a floral hair accessory she had worn on TV still on.

After an autopsy, the city’s chief medical examiner, James Luke, put on Kilgallen’s death certificate: “Acute Ethanol and Barbiturate Intoxication, Circumstances Undetermined.” Luke ruled her death accidental, caused by a combination of sleeping pills and booze.

Quickly closing the case, the city left a tarnished image of Kilgallen as a possible drug abuser and alcoholic.

The truth is far more complex and ominous, contends lawyer and veteran author Mark Shaw, whose exhaustively researched, true-life whodunnit, “The Reporter Who Knew Too Much” (Post Hill Press/Simon & Schuster), comes out Tuesday.

Shaw makes a compelling argument that Kilgallen was the victim of foul play, likely orchestrated by New Orleans Mafia don Carlos Marcello, who feared the results of her 18-month investigation for a tell-all book that would accuse Marcello of masterminding the JFK and Lee Harvey ­Oswald assassinations.

Fearing Loss Of Federal Funding Under Trump, New York City Begins Urgent Review For Revenue…


Mayor de Blasio scrambling to tax air.

Via NY Times:

Officials are conducting an urgent review of the billions of dollars that New York City receives each year from the federal government to identify the streams of money that may be most at risk once President-elect Donald J. Trump takes office.

Mr. Trump, a Republican, has threatened to punish cities that defy his efforts to deport undocumented immigrants, and there is also concern that the Republican-controlled Congress may seek to slash longstanding aid programs.

“There’s urgency because the threat seems greater than it’s been,” said Tony Shorris, the first deputy mayor, referring to the effort to identify which programs may be most at risk. “There’s also uncertainty because the lack of clarity is much greater than it’s been.”

Mr. Trump has said he will cut financing to so-called sanctuary cities that move to protect undocumented immigrants or refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

In response, Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, and the mayors of many other cities have adopted a defiant stance, saying they will not comply with demands to help identify or round up immigrants in this country illegally.

NY AG Trying To Get ‘Climate Change Deniers’ May Be In Trouble Himself


He was also on Hillary for Victory committee in NY. That didn’t work out either.

Via NY Post:

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s witch hunt against supposed “climate-science deniers” became an even more embarrassing debacle late last month — and just might wind up ending his career.

A state judge ruled in favor of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a think tank whose Freedom of Information request the AG had denied. That gave Schneiderman 30 days to cough up documents concerning his agreements with other states’ AGs, and with a group of green activists, about their joint persecution of ExxonMobile and other entities for supposed “climate fraud.”

CEI had been targeted by one of Schneiderman’s co-conspirators, the Virgin Islands AG, with legal demands that plainly aimed at suppressing free speech and scientific inquiry that the nonprofit sponsors.

The think tank’s lawyers believe the documents could show improper conduct by the AGs. If they do, Schneiderman faces serious trouble.

Police Use ‘Fake News’ In Sting Aimed At California Gang…


Journalists worried about losing credibility with the public.


Police investigating a notorious gang in a city on California’s central coast issued a fake press release that the chief credited with saving two men by deceiving gang members who wanted to kill them, but the ruse was criticized by news organizations who reported it as fact.

Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin defended the rare tactic this week when it came to light, saying he had never done such a thing in his 43-year career, but he wouldn’t rule out doing it again.

“It was a moral and ethical decision, and I stand by it,” Martin said Friday. “I am keenly aware and sensitive to the community and the media. I also had 21 bodies lying in the city in the last 15 months.”

The phony announcement issued in February was discovered in court documents and only reported this week by the Santa Maria Sun, a weekly newspaper in the city 140 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

The daily newspaper and local television stations were unaware the information in the release was false when they reported that two men, Jose Santos Melendez, 22, and Jose Marino Melendez, 23, had been picked up for identity theft and handed over to immigration authorities.

In fact, detectives eavesdropping on the deadly MS-13 gang had raced to the home of the two cousins in nearby Guadalupe and took them into protective custody after learning hit men were on their way there.

Kendra Martinez, news director at KSBY-TV, said she was “deeply troubled” that police misled the public and news organizations.

“While we strongly support the police department’s efforts to protect citizens in harm’s way, we are concerned this type of deception can erode the basic trust of our residents and viewers,” Martinez said.

The sting comes to light as news organizations try to set the record straight as truth and fiction blur amid a proliferation of “fake news” spread by social media.

Jonathan Kotler, a professor at the USC Annenberg journalism school, said there was nothing illegal about what police did, but it could raise questions about the department’s future credibility. However, he said the public is unlikely to appreciate the importance of that issue, particularly when the police said it was matter of life and death.

“If the press cries foul here, saying they were led astray by a false release, then you’ve got the press being angry about being misled,” Kotler said. “But on the other hand, the cops would say, ‘But look we saved lives.’ In that kind of PR battle, who do you think comes off looking better, the press or the police?”

Nearly 5 Million People Think Hillary Should Be President Despite Election Defeat


The petition is in and of itself deceptive and has gone thru at least two rewrites since it was started, in part because people like this site have pointed out the illegality they were pushing. Initially they offered to pay the fine of faithless electors who broke the law. They still appear to be suggesting to electors there would be no consequences to being ‘faithless’, when in some states it is against the law.

Via Fox News Insider:

Nearly five million people have signed a Change.org petition urging electors of the Electoral College to make Hillary Clinton, not President-elect Donald Trump, the next commander-in-chief.

The petition says Trump is “unfit to serve” and calls on 149 electors to ignore the way their states voted and pick Clinton because she won the popular vote.

“His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the republic,” the petition reads. “There is no reason Trump should be president.”

Colorado Electors Plan To Challenge State Law In Bid To Derail Donald Trump’s Victory…


They aren’t super delegates.

Via Colorado Springs Gazette:

Four of Colorado’s nine Electoral College electors plan to challenge a state law that would prevent a long-shot bid to keep President-elect Donald Trump out of the White House.

Robert Nemanich, of Colorado Springs, said Saturday he and three other electors intend to sue Colorado’s governor, attorney general, secretary of state and state Democratic Party chairman claiming state law requiring electors to vote for the presidential and vice presidential candidates “who received the highest number of votes at the preceding general election in this state,” is unconstitutional.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton won Colorado – and the popular vote nationwide – but lost the election to Trump, who captured the needed Electoral College votes to win the presidency.

The four electors hope that if the law is struck down, Colorado’s electors can join forces with other Democrats pledged to Clinton and disaffected Republicans pledged to Trump to find an alternative Republican acceptable to both sides, Nemanich said.

“There are Republicans and Democrats now willing to look for a solution to Donald Trump (being elected).” he said. “The linchpin comes down to whether there are enough Republicans to join.”

Eight of Colorado’s nine electors have voiced support for the lawsuit, which Nemanich said would be filed Monday.

The plan would require that 270 electors agree to vote for a presidential candidate that was not on the ballot.

If electors pick the candidate they’ve pledged to pick, as they’ve done in past elections, Trump would win the presidency by 37 votes. Because Colorado residents elected Clinton, all of the state’s nine votes would go to the Democratic presidential candidate.

Along with another four electors from Washington trying to stop Trump’s election, Nemanich and the three other electors named as plaintiffs in the suit – former Democratic state Rep. Polly Baca of Denver, Michael Baca of Denver, and Jerad Sutton of Greeley – have been nicknamed the Hamilton Electors after United States Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. In an installment of the well-known Federalist Papers essay series, Hamilton argued that the Electoral College is meant to serve as a safeguard against electing a candidate who may not be qualified to be president.

Mike Rowe to Fan: The American Flag is More than a ‘Mere Symbol’


Via Fox News Insider:

Television host Mike Rowe replied to a viewer who criticized him for being “blindly patriotic” in an earlier post in which Rowe suggested that college students opposed to flying the American flag should therefore refuse any government funding for their education.

In his previous post, Rowe was responding to recent events at Hampshire College, in which Old Glory was burned and the college president called for the removal of all American flags thereafter– a decision he recently recanted.

The woman said Rowe, host of ‘Dirty Jobs’ and ‘Deadliest Catch’, should “take a civics course” and recognize the flag as a “mere symbol”.

Rowe said the flag is as much a symbol as the Crucifix, Swastika, wedding ring and middle finger.

Hillary Surrogate Jill Stein To Hold Rally Outside Trump Tower On Monday…


Keep those donations coming, Jill needs a foundation.

Via The Hill:

Green Party candidate Jill Stein is scheduled to hold a press conference and rally outside Trump Tower in New York on Monday, defending her push for recounts in several states.

“We won’t stand down as Donald Trump and his allies seek to frivolously obstruct the legal processes set up to ensure we have a voting system we can trust and that all votes have been counted,” Stein said in a statement released Saturday.

Stein filed for a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, traditionally blue states where Trump narrowly won this year.

Trump and his lawyers have filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan to try to block Stein’s recount effort, while one of his super PACs filed to stop the recount in Wisconsin.

“Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in the complaint filed in Pennsylvania.

Stein has insisted that the recount is a non-partisan effort to ensure the integrity of the voting process, while Trump has called the effort a “scam.”
