Obama Regime Halts Aerial Surveillance Which Stopped 110,000 Illegal Aliens At Border


Trying to let everyone in before Trump comes in?

Via Newsmax:

Surveillance flights nabbed 110,000 illegal immigrants trying to cross into the United State from Mexico, The Daily Signal reports.

The flights, operating under a program called Operation Phalanx, were shut down — at least for the rest of the year by Homeland Security — amid protests from elected officials who represent the adjacent area.

According to the Daily Signal, Operation Phalanx logged 2,800 hours of flight time in in the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo sectors in Texas since March. About 1,000 additional flight hours were reported in the Tucson, Arizona area.

Four Prominent Whistleblowers Throw Support Behind Pete Hegseth For Sec VA Position


Hegseth appears to be the most knowledgeable on the subject, of the names who are in consideration.

Via Daily Caller:

Four prominent whistleblowers are supporting Army veteran Pete Hegseth for the position of secretary of the Department of Veterans.

In a letter sent Thursday to Trump Tower in Manhattan, Brandon Coleman, Ryan Honl, Joseph Colon, and Shea Wilkes urged GOP President-elect Donald Trump to choose Hegseth, despite the inevitable opposition that will come from veterans’ organizations and federal employee union the American Federation of Government Employees.

Wilkes and Honl are former Army officers. Colon is a Navy veteran, and Coleman is a Marine Corps veteran.

Coleman, Honl, Colon and Wilkes have frequently appeared on TV and were featured in articles about waste, incompetence and poor care at their respective VA facilities. They have also faced retaliation from the administration after bringing to light serious, unaddressed issues.

“These organizations each want to keep the “status quo” and to keep lining their pockets at the expense of our nation’s heroes. This is exactly the reason Mr. Hegseth is the right choice to run the VA,” the whistleblowers wrote. “The current problems with the VA are not a funding issue, as they are a bad management issue.”

Katy Perry’s Sad Rant: Trump’s Win “Triggered” Me, “Vulnerable, Confused, Frightened Like A Child”


So incredibly insecure.

Via Red Alert Politics:

Hillary Clinton presented one of her most loyal supporters, singer Katy Perry, with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award at the UNICEF Gala this past Tuesday night. It was Clinton’s second appearance since conceding the election to Donald Trump, and the award came as a surprise to the 32-year-old singer.

Perry was so overwhelmed with emotion that she did the same thing anyone in Hollywood does — write a love letter via Instagram caption — and it’s a goldmine of celebrity self-pity.

Michigan AG Files Lawsuit Against Jill Stein’s ‘Frivolous’ Recount Effort


Stein and her lawyers should be sanctioned and fined for filing the bogus recount lawsuit that could cost taxpayers millions.

Via Washington Free Beacon:

Michigan’s Republican attorney general filed a lawsuit on Friday to halt a vote recount attempt pursued in the state by Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein.

“Michigan voters rejected Stein’s candidacy by massive margins but her refusal to accept that state-verified result poses an expensive and risky threat to hard-working taxpayers and abuses the intent of Michigan law,” Bill Schuette said in a statement, Politico reported.

“We have asked the court to end the recount which Stein is pursuing in violation of Michigan laws that protect the integrity of our elections. It is inexcusable for Stein to put Michigan voters at risk of paying millions and potentially losing their voice in the Electoral College in the process,” he continued.

Schuette’s lawsuit calls Stein’s effort “dilatory and frivolous” given the failed presidential candidate’s admission that she has no evidence of fraud or widespread errors occurring in the state’s voting process. The attorney general said he also filed an emergency motion with Michigan’s Supreme Court “to bypass the Court of Appeals to ensure a timely process.”

Stein filed a petition with the state’s Board of Canvassers on Wednesday asking for a manual recount of every vote cast in Michigan for the presidential election. The effort, expected to begin on Friday, cost the campaign nearly $1 million. Stein is also leading recount efforts in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, claiming that her goal is to “ensure the integrity and accuracy of the vote.”

Schuette warned a recount in the state could end up costing $5 million, potentially leaving taxpayers exposed to paying the remainder not covered by Stein.

Trump Calls Taiwan, First Call Since Diplomatic Relations Suspended In 1979


Wow, now that impresses me, that’s a truly bold move.

We threw Taiwan under the bus 37 years ago, despite our prior relationship and in favor of Communists. It appears that two can play at this game of ‘normalizing relationships’.

Via Business Insider:

President-elect Trump spoke with the president of Taiwan by phone on Friday, the Financial Times reported, in a move likely to infuriate Beijing and hinder US-China relations.

Trump’s spokesperson Hope Hicks confirmed the phone call in an email on Friday.

“President-elect Trump spoke with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan, who offered her congratulations,” according to a readout of the call released by Trump’s transition team.

“During the discussion, they noted the close economic, political, and security ties exists between Taiwan and the United States. President-elect Trump also congratulated President Tsai on becoming President of Taiwan earlier this year.”

The call is the first time a US president has directly spoken with Taiwan’s leadership in more than 30 years. The US suspended formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan in 1979 after establishing a One China position in an effort to establish diplomatic channels with Beijing.

Good News! First Day Of Wisconsin Recount Nets Hillary…One Vote…


All she needs is 22,000 more…

Via Daily Caller:

The first day of Wisconsin’s presidential recount narrowed the gap between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President-elect Donald Trump by precisely one vote.

Trump defeated Clinton in Wisconsin’s initial tally by about one percent, or just over 22,000 votes. Nevertheless, Green Party candidate Jill Stein (who finished a very distant fourth) is demanding a full recount after suggesting fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results. In response to Stein’s demand, Wisconsin began recounting all its ballots Thursday.

Report: Obama To Launch Media Company After Leaving Office? Aide Denies…


Sigh, haven’t we see enough of him already? I suppose it’s too much to hope he would go quietly into the night…

Via MIC:

President Barack Obama has been discussing a post-presidential career in digital media and is considering launching his own media company, according to multiple sources who spoke on background because they were not authorized to speak for the president.

Obama considers media to be a central focus of his next chapter, these sources say, though exactly what form that will take — a show streaming on Netflix, a web series on a comedy site or something else — remains unclear. Obama has gone so far as to discuss launching his own media company, according to one source with knowledge of the matter, although he has reportedly cooled on the idea of late.

When contacted for comment, White House communications director Jen Psaki told Mic in a statement, “While the president will remain actively engaged in inspiring young people and he is interested in the changing ways people consume information, he has no plans to get into the media business after he leaves office.”

“I’m not going to this inauguration. I can’t go to this inauguration because he continues to spew hatred, bigotry and prejudice even after he said he was going to bring us all together, he was going to unify, but he’s not,” the Illinois congressman said on CNN.

Gutierrez, who gave an impassioned speech against Trump at the Democratic National Convention, said he and his wife will instead take part in the protests and marches against Trump in Washington next month.

MLB Bans Chewing Tobacco For All New Players…


Controlling people’s lives one chew at a time.

Via Deadspin:

As part of baseball’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which was finalized late Wednesday night, MLB and the MLBPA agreed to a ban on smokeless tobacco for new major leaguers going forward, according to the Associated Press. City-specific bans already apply to ballparks in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Milwaukee, and D.C.

Advocacy groups have been working for years to cut down on the ambient affiliation between baseball and tobacco, with limited success. The cause received an unfortunate boost in 2014 when Tony Gwynn died of cancer at the age of 54. His family contends that his decades-long chewing tobacco habit directly contributed to his untimely death, and earlier this year they brought a negligence and product liability lawsuit against Altria Group Inc., formerly the Philip Morris company, one of the largest tobacco companies in the world.

Should Doctors Check Your Electric Bill?



Via Politico:

BALTIMORE – Fifteen years ago, Dr. Megan Tschudy didn’t want to know whether her patients had enough food. It’s not that she didn’t care: As a pediatrician working at a health clinic in East Baltimore, a part of town battered by decades of poverty and crime, she knew that undernourishment was probably connected to a whole host of health problems in the kids she was seeing. But as a pediatrician, she also knew there was nothing she could do about it. The problem might lie with school lunches, or neglect at home, or even an unpaid gas bill – all of which were miles from anything a doctor could treat.

Today, that same pediatric clinic in Baltimore screens every family that comes through the door for basic social needs that go way beyond medical care: Families are asked about food and housing, about childcare and access to transportation, along with their height, weight and blood pressure. Can they pay for the electricity needed to keep their diabetes medicine refrigerated or to power a Nebulizer to treat asthma, not to mention keep them warm at night?

If there’s a problem, she or one of her colleagues refers the family to a team of college student volunteers who match them with community resources that can help them solve it. Then the students follow up, follow up, and follow up some more.

Senators Crafting Bill To Limit Deportations Under Trump Administration…


Via The Hill:

Democratic and Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are working on legislation that would limit deportations if President-elect Donald Trump repeals President Obama’s executive orders on illegal immigration.

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), both members of the panel, are crafting a bill to shield children living in the country illegally from being deported if they grew up in the United States and have stayed out of trouble.

The bill is likely to have the support of another Republican on the committee, Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.). He was a member of the so-called Gang of Eight that put together the comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the Senate in 2013.

Trump has vowed to repeal Obama’s executive orders that halted deportations for people who came to the country illegally at a young age, as well as deportations of the parents of citizens and lawful permanent residents.

Hampshire College Becomes A Safe Space For Special Snowflakes, Bans Protesters From Campus In Wake Of Flag Burning…


Opposing views are verboten. Update to this previous story.

Via Watchdog:

Last week Watchdog reported that Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., would temporarily stop flying the American flag after a backlash following Donald Trump’s election. Now the school wants protesters to remain off campus, and initially banned the media from speaking to students, although has since backed away from that position.

After Trump won, the school lowered its flag to half-staff. This was seen by some, including many veterans, as a response to the election and an insult to the traditional reasons for flying the flag at half-staff. Hampshire president Jonathan Lash said in a statement to students that it was not the school’s intention to lower the flag in response to the election, but rather as “an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally, including the many U.S. service members who have lost their lives.”

With the flag at half-staff, someone set it on fire, although it was not clear what the motive was behind the burning.

Hampshire, which has about 1,400 students, said it would hold discussions about what the flag means to various members of the school’s community and would not fly the American flag – or any flag – until more discussions were held.

On Nov. 27, an estimated crowd of 400 veterans and others showed up to protest the college’s decision. Since then, Lash has issued a new statement in an email to students, which was provided to Watchdog, writing that “no protestors will be allowed to come on campus.”

The original email, sent to students on Tuesday, included a section that barred the media from campus and from speaking to students.[..]

Hampshire spokesman John Courtmanche told Watchdog that he had sent a revised email Wednesday morning admitting it was a “mistake” to include a statement banning the media from talking to students. He added that no such prohibition exists.

Courtmanche also told Watchdog that protesters could still demonstrate along Route 116, where Sunday’s protest occurred. There is an entrance to the campus of 116.

“In recent weeks, as you know, there has been heated response by some across the country to the college’s decision to temporarily lower the flag,” Courtmanche said in an email to Watchdog. “As a precaution, we have enhanced our campus security since safety is our primary concern.”

He added that “campus police would aim to help ensure” that any future protests are peaceful and preserve “the safety and security of our community.”

China Censorship Crack Down: No More Kim Jong-Un Fat Jokes…

Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong-un gets his own safe space courtesy of the ChiComs.

Via Red Alert:

China has a long reputation for censoring political speech and dissent against their own government. But now, the Chinese government is trying protect a neighboring leader who’s not held in high esteem: North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Fascination has grown in the People’s Republic of the DPRK leader’s apparent weight gain, and now the Chinese government has stepped in to censor offending language to the young dictator on social media.

Terms like “Kim the Fat,” “Kim Fat III,” and “Kim Fatty III” have appeared on social media sites throughout the year, particularly on the popular Chinese platform Sina Weibo. The “III” refers to the fact that Kim Jong-un’s father and grandfather were also named “Kim.”

In response to North Korea allegedly asking the Chinese government to censor these social media posts mocking their dear leader, users started to get more creative with their posts, including names like “Kim III half-moon.”

Jihadists Behead 8 Somalis For Refusing To Pay Islamic Poll Tax…


Religion of Peace™

Via Express:

ISLAMIC terrorists beheaded eight Somali village elders and killed at least seven other people during fighting spurred by a dispute over payment of an Islamic tax, a villager and a local official said today.

Villagers in the semi-autonomous region of Galmadug in central Somalia also killed 10 terrorists during three days of fighting, the villager said, adding that Somali authorities had provided no help or support.

The Islamist insurgent group al Shabaab is battling a weak United Nations-backed government in Mogadishu in an effort to impose its strict interpretation of Islamic law in areas of the country it controls.

“Al Shabaab ordered us to pay dozens of animals for zakat (Islamic tax) and we rejected this – that is how the fighting started. We killed 10 militants on the first day,” local elder Nur Abdullahi told Reuters.
