    Millions of rational Americans were shocked when a California jury announced that the illegal and criminal alien charged in the 2015 death of Kate Steinle had been found not guilty on November 30th. A political statement was prioritized over justice that should have been served. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a man with seven felony convictions and five previous deportations, was acquitted of murder and manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon. On Saturday, I attended the Justice for Kate Steinle march to Pier 14 from Union Square in San Francisco. The pier is where Kate was murdered by the illegal...

    Take George Orwell’s "1984." Now sprinkle in that episode of "Black Mirror" where characters live in a world in which every aspect of their lives is dominated by ratings. That’s one way to think about the Social Credit System, a plan that the Chinese government will make mandatory for all its citizens by 2020. It’s like a credit score system, but instead of just financial information, this one will also pull together a person's political leanings, purchase history and even their social interactions to calculate their "trust score." Chinese officials say it’s a way to influence their citizens’ behavior to...

    A new video shows footage of civilians holding the terrorist to the floor and searching him for the knife. Later, police arrive and handcuff the suspect.

    Yesterday news broke Department of Homeland Security officials are encouraging employees to work expensive overtime hours to push through as many U.S. citizenship applications as possible before the November election. An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday. The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the...

Following violent attacks, some specifically sexual in nature, Frauke Petry backed the arming of the German people against the Muslims. Yahoo News reports:

    Going Inside The Chicago Police Department’s ‘Strategic Subject List’ May 31, 2016 7:58 AM Audio CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago suffered through an especially bloody holiday weekend, with 69 people shot over the Memorial Day weekend, including six fatalities. Police said the vast majority of the victims were on a watchlist of sorts – what the department calls its “strategic subject list.” CBS 2’s Mai Martinez sat down with the Chicago Police Department’s top brass to talk about how the list works. The strategic subject list uses an algorithm to try to predict who is most likely to be involved in...

Kirk Allen and John Kraft call themselves the Edgar County Watchdogs. Others call them busybodies with too much time on their hands.

    The U.S. government and those in Canada and Europe are openly discriminating against their own populations Are governments of the day like those in the U.S., Britain, Canada, France, Germany and other European countries gaming the very populations they were elected to serve in what should be publicly identified as ‘Big Governments’ Immigration Game? While millions knock themselves out on the Internet, hurling insults at the enemy camp in the presidential election primaries, look what Big Government is doing in the U.S.: “The U.S. is aiding business start-ups—for illegal immigrants.” (Fox News, April 16, 2016) ... “It might come as...

    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told an audience today that illegal aliens are “not going away” and are “in effect” US citizens. And the DC elites wonder why Donald Trump is winning the Republican primary??? The Washington Examiner reported: The nation’s top immigration officer said that the “11 million” undocumented aliens in the United States are “not going away,” are “in effect” citizens, and added that deporting the few the administration wants out is unpleasant. Jeh Johnson, secretary of Homeland Security, told Harvard University students this week that the administration is focused on its plan to integrate illegals...

    The Obama administration is supporting several non-profit groups — with federal funding through a major White House initiative — that are part of an organized effort aimed at converting green-card holders into U.S. citizens in order to vote against Donald Trump, ... Through an initiative called Networks for Integrating New Americans initiative, which the White House formed in April 2014, the administration has partnered with the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), an immigration rights umbrella organization that has denounced Trump’s “hateful rhetoric.” In a recent post to its Facebook page, NPNA asserted that green-card holders “have the potential to...

    Newt Gingrich laid it out perfectly on Sunday. The forced ouster of Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich this week was a sign of the "new fascism" of liberalism that's sweeping American life. "People need to realize, if you're a young faculty member, in a lot of places if you're a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views – meaning conservative – you have no career," Gingrich said on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "This is just the most open and blatant example of the new fascism, which says, 'if you don't agree with us...

    Democratic presidential candidates made a battle cry out of reversing the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision long before the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. As a consequence of Scalia's death on Feb. 13, will Democrats get their wish? Campaign-finance experts on both sides agree that Scalia's death leaves the 5-4 ruling vulnerable if he is replaced by a nominee of President Barack Obama or a future Democratic president. Both of Obama's previous appointees, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, dissented from the decision. Scalia was an enthusiastic member of the majority. "Citizens United is undoubtedly the recent precedent that would...
  • Experts: Oregon standoff may be small, but it’s just the tip of a growing militia iceberg

    The seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon by armed anti-government extremists has attracted national attention and raised questions about whether the takeover is a powder keg about to blow. But experts who monitor the anti-government movement say an even greater concern is lurking behind the confrontation that erupted Saturday at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon. The militia movement, they say, is in the midst of a massive growth spurt at levels even greater than in the early 1990s after the Waco, Texas, standoff and the siege at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. It...

    The one thing about the hornet's nest in the media that Trump kicked over the other day was the whole idea that it was somehow wrong to ask an incoming immigrant about their religious affiliation. But I ask you all, why did all the progressives either the republicans or the democrat progressives all while and moan like stuck little piggies about this issue. They seem to come from the perspective that the rights protected in Constitution extend to everyone everywhere in the world. This is absurd, plain outright absurd and dangerous. Their interpretation of "Protected American Rights" would then mean...
