The teenage illegal immigrants charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Maryland public high school last week entered the United States under an Obama program that’s accommodated tens of thousands of Central American youths who crossed the Mexican border. The administration coined them Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and portrayed them as innocent, desperate kids fleeing violence and famine in their homeland. Most are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and the influx has overwhelmed border agents, government health agencies and military bases that serve as shelters not to mention public schools nationwide.
This week two of the UACs protected by Obama’s outlaw amnesty measures were charged with the rape of a ninth-grader at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, a Maryland jurisdiction that offers illegal aliens sanctuary. The illegal immigrants, 17-year-old Jose Montano and 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, were both charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. Both illegal aliens were in the ninth grade like their victim, according local news reports. Montano came to the U.S. from El Salvador and Sanchez, who reportedly had been ordered deported, from Guatemala. Both are being held without bail. Several local media outlets printed a letter sent to parents by the school district describing the rape as a “serious incident” that “is being addressed.”
At the National Center for Public Policy Research, expressed frustration with the company’s vow to hire 10,000 refugees in response to President Trump’s travel ban order.
Danhof questioned why CEO Howard Schultz’s heart wasn’t “heavy” when the Obama administration’s State Department in 2011 stopped processing visas for six months for refugees from Iraq.
“I have two quick questions: I understand that as you said ‘not every decision is based on economics,’ but economics are a hard reality. So, the first question is how much will investors have to spend so that company can properly vet refugees that the federal government admits it can’t always afford to vet? And why were you willing to have Starbucks’ reputation take a beating by attacking President Trump’s executive order when you lacked the courage to speak out against Obama/Clinton travel ban.”
Danhof’s question was met with audible boos from the audience.
Schultz responded that it’s not about politics, but instead it’s about compassion.
“If there’s one message that I think, I hope, you came away with today it’s that none of the things we’ve tried to do as a company, which is based on humanity and compassion, is based on politics. But it’s based on principles and our core beliefs,” Schultz said.
Police in South Carolina say a 19-year-old black man spray-painted racist, misogynistic and anti-gay graffiti on three buildings, including a library named for one of the black victims of the Charleston church shootings.
A police report says the graffiti left at the Cynthia Hurd Library on March 13 targeted black women, the police and white people. Hurd was one of nine black parishioners fatally shot by a white supremacist at the Emanuel AME Church in 2015.
A police report says graffiti on the other three buildings included racial slurs against blacks and Hispanics.
Jail records show Cainin Milton was arrested Thursday and charged with four counts of malicious injury to real property. The records didn’t show an attorney for Milton, and no police report was available to explain a possible motive.
A new report has found that millennials don’t consider themselves adults until they reach the age of 30.
Yes, you read that correctly.
According to The Wrap, research compiled by David Poltrack, CBS’ chief research officer and their ratings expert, as well as Nielsen Catalina Solutions, found that millennials consider themselves adults at age 30 because that’s when they typically are completely responsible for themselves – they no longer reside with their parents and pay entirely for their own bills.
A key reason for this shift is economic: the job market has been sluggish since the 2007-2009 recession, worsened by the rising cost of housing. The employment situation has also been particularly tough for recent college graduates who are drowning in student loan debt.
The Trump administration’s approval of the controversial TransCanada Corp pipeline means more North American crude and fuel could ultimately flow out to the world market.
The pipeline would also further cement the bonds between the two key North American producers and increase the interdependence of the U.S. on Canada, as a source of imported oil, over OPEC and other producers. Canada supplies about half of the nearly 8 million barrels a day of oil imported by the U.S.
On Friday, President Donald Trump kept a campaign promise, as the State Department approved the 800,000 barrel a day northern leg of the Keystone pipeline. Held up for years by the Obama administration, the pipeline is planned to take oil from the Canadian sands in Alberta down to Steele City, Neb., where it could then head either to the Gulf Coast or Midwest refineries.
Two groups and several community members are suing a Virginia city and their city council after the council voted to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee.
The Monument Fund, Inc. and the Virginia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Inc. are suing Charlottesville and the Charlottesville City Council for the pending removal of the General Lee statue, as well as a statue of Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and the renaming of Lee Park and Jackson Park, as reported by The Cavalier Daily.
The removal of the two statues could cost $700,000, according to Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Guides to mounting a car terror attack were available on Google and Twitter last night.
The vile manuals were online despite widespread warnings that UK jihadists use them for training.
Fanatics are urged to deploy large vehicles as ‘tools of war’ before going on a stabbing rampage – the template for Wednesday’s atrocity in Westminster. Boris Johnson accused social media websites of inciting terrorism.
And Google’s YouTube video platform was found to be raking in money from conspiracy theories saying the London outrage was a hoax.
As the maniac behind the attack was unmasked as 52-year-old Khalid Masood:
The security services faced questions because he was known to police and MI5;
Home Secretary Amber Rudd denied failures but admitted: ‘One got through’;
It emerged MPs had raised concerns about the Commons gates Masood waltzed through;
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) rushed to the White House Friday afternoon to tell President Donald Trump that they do not enough votes to pass legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the New York Times reported.
The Republican legislation, the American Health Care Act, would repeal Obamacare, which was signed into legislation in 2010.
A bus with social conservative slogans denouncing transgenderism was vandalized Thursday in New York City by trans activists.
The so-called “Free Speech Bus” is based off a similar one set up by activists in Madrid. After Spanish transgender activists put up posters reading, “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It’s as simple as that,” a conservative Catholic group drove around a bus with the opposite message: “Boys have penises, girls have vulvas. Do not be fooled.”
The Spanish bus was eventually shut down and impounded when the Madrid City Council dug up a municipal code banning outdoor advertising. Liberals in Spain and the United States alike applauded the decision, including Chelsea Clinton.
The Trump administration gave the Keystone XL pipeline its key federal permit Friday, clearing a major hurdle for the project that former President Obama rejected in 2015.
The State Department announced Friday morning that its undersecretary for political affairs, Tom Shannon, issued the permit, two months after President Trump signed a memorandum to revive the project after Obama’s rejection.
“In making his determination that issuance of this permit would serve the national interest, the under secretary considered a range of factors, including but not limited to foreign policy; energy security; environmental, cultural, and economic impacts; and compliance with applicable law and policy,” State said.
Explosive snippets of race-faker Rachel Dolezal’s memoir have been released, including a passage where she describes herself as being ‘too black’ for her African-American husband.
The disgraced civil rights activist, who claimed to be black before her parents outed her as white, is officially on the comeback trail and back in the spotlight, ahead of the release of her book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, on March 28.
The most unapologetic excerpts are two of the chapter titles chosen by the 40-year-old: ‘Escaping to Africa (in My Head)’ and ‘Hustling to Make a Dollar’.
Never one to stray too far from controversy, the former NAACP leader, who still identifies as black despite being ‘Caucasian biologically’, uses these chapters to compare her childhood chores to slave labor.
MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell attacked President Donald Trump on Thursday night, calling him the “laziest, most ignorant president in history” for his handling of the ongoing health care debate.
O’Donnell had a panel on his show, “The Last Word,” to discuss Trump reportedly telling congressional Republicans on Thursday that he is done negotiating on the American Health Care Act, the House GOP bill to replace Obamacare.
About three dozen House Republicans, mainly from the conservative Freedom Caucus, still plan to vote against the bill, enough to kill the legislation. Trump supports the bill and has been working with House leadership to secure enough votes to pass the Obamacare replacement plan, offering changes to the current bill in hopes of assuaging uncertain Republicans.
Trump apparently told GOP lawmakers, however, they will need to vote on the plan Friday in its current form or live with the Affordable Care Act remaining in place.
