    Police in Arizona thought they were busting an ordinary case of a fraudulent return this week until some digging discovered the same 23-year-old man has perpetrated the scheme at thousands of Walmart stores across the country. Police in Yuma, Arizona, said they responded to a case of a fraudulent return on Wednesday afternoon in which a person bringing a computer back to Walmart had allegedly removed parts of the computer before putting it back in the box and taking it back to the store. Upon investigation, the Yuma Police Department found out the same man had pulled the same scheme...

    In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. A first-rate librarian, Ferriero has been driving a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment. This will greatly improve the ability of digital search locally and remotely, as well as accessing the files themselves. To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For...
  • Trump exposes the G-7 summit as a total fraud

    06/10/2018 8:15:53 AM PDT · by rktman · 37 replies ^ | 6/10/2018 | Ed Straker
    President Trump didn't play along with the usual narrative at the G-7 summit, and the liberal media predictably characterized him as the villain: Even before then, Mr. Trump had left himself the outlier in the annual session. By departing before the end, he skipped sessions about climate change, oceans and clean energy — ceding not only America’s leadership on those topics, but also its very seat at the table. Lost in this breathless "transcription" of events is the question of whether America should lead on so-called "issues" such as climate change, oceans, and supposedly "clean" energy.

    Facebook shared personal information from user profiles with companies after the date when executives have said the social network prevented third-party developers from gaining access to the data, the company confirmed on Friday. The records included information about the friends of Facebook users, including phone numbers and analysis of the degrees of separation between people, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Facebook acknowledged the information was given to a “small number” of companies including RBC Capital Markets, Nissan, advertisers and other business partners.
  • Did Liberals Got Conned? How Is Jill Stein Spending The Money She Raised For Bogus 2016 Recounts?

    06/07/2018 11:49:16 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 30 replies ^ | June 7, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Remember Jill Stein’s shoddy 2016 recounts? Remember how she raised more for this nonsense effort than for her entire 2016 campaign? She raised over $7 million for this effort, and she seems to be spending it on her staff. Not in a lavish sense, but they told Daily Beast it’s because they’re continuing the recount initiative. A bit odd since Stein promised that there would be a vote on how the rest of the fund raised would be distributed. So far, that has not happened.As liberals licked their wounds, with some still recovering from the shock of Trump’s win, Stein...
  • When Democrats Drop 100K Voters From The Rolls It’s “Accidental”

    Hot Air ^ | 7 Jun 2018 | Jazz Shaw
    During Tuesday’s California gubernatorial primary, more than 100K voters in the Los Angeles area were not on the voter rolls when they showed up to vote. This led third-place finisher (and “first loser”) Antonio Villaraigosa to call for voting to be extended until Friday, still hoping to drive the second place GOP finisher from the race. In any red state, when people suddenly wind up missing from the voter rolls, Republicans are “suppressing the vote” or simply being racists. But what happens when the same problems crop up where Democrats control all of the election infrastructure? It’s an accident caused...

    A new ad for Jennifer Wexton, a top Democratic challenger to Virginia GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock, briefly features three police officers signing a poster promising “Change is Coming.” But none of them are actual law enforcement. In fact, one of them is Matt Leslie, Wexton’s field director, who, according to his LinkedIn profile, has never been and is not currently police.

    For weeks, California trial lawyer Michael Avenatti has seized a starring role in the salacious hush-money scandal unfolding around President Donald Trump. Inside a courtroom in New York on Wednesday, as cameras swarmed outside, a federal judge decided she had heard enough from Mr. Avenatti, telling him to take his “publicity tour” elsewhere.

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told Attorney General Maura Healey (D-MA) that she would like to be CEO of Facebook, while receiving the Radcliffe Award at Harvard on Friday. “If you could be a CEO of any company right now, what would you choose?” Healey asked. “Facebook,” Clinton quickly answered. The former secretary of state explained that Facebook “is the biggest news platform in the world.” “Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook,” she said. “It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.” Apparently Clinton...

    Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed as black and led an NAACP chapter, is facing a lengthy prison term on welfare fraud charges. Ms. Dolezal, who legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in the wake of her “transracial” flap, has been charged with three counts — theft by welfare fraud, perjury, and making false claims to get public assistance. According to KHQ-TV, which broke the charges, she could get up to 15 years in prison. Ms. Dolezal received $8,747 in food assistance, and $100 in childcare assistance, the Spokane, Washington, NBC affiliate reported, citing court documents. She received...

    For more than a year, the Democrat-aligned media has denied and scoffed at allegations that elements within the Obama administration had spied upon the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. That all changed recently with the leaked admission of an “informant” who’d been querying marginal Trump campaign associates for information about supposed connections to Russia on behalf of former President Barack Obama’s FBI.

    Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley allegedly posed as a 17-year-old Hurricane Harvey refugee so he could play boys' basketball at Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas. On Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News reported the 25-year-old, who also spent time at Skyline High School, was arrested Friday on a charge of tampering with government records. The mother of a 14-year-old female student told the paper he dated her daughter while at Hillcrest High. Gilstrap-Portley, who officials say was operating under the alias Rashun Richardson, was named the District 11-5A Offensive Player of the Year during the 2017-18 season.

    The Department of Justice lost its latest battle... when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications... Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation... The bureau already has some explaining to do. Thanks to the... leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source”... who is a U.S. citizen...

    Full title of article: "Before Stormy Daniels, her attorney faced allegations of dubious business dealings at Tully’s Coffee" Excerpt: Michael Avenatti has become a cable news celebrity for accusing Donald Trump of trying to silence his porn-star client, but his involvement with Tully’s Coffee has been a source of legal headaches. He’s become famous as the brash lawyer for the porn star who purportedly bedded the future president, but before Michael Avenatti accused Donald Trump and his attorney of a payoff scheme to muzzle Stormy Daniels, he faced allegations of dubious business dealings as owner of a flailing coffee chain....

    For three years, Tovia O'Neal simultaneously received food stamps, cash welfare, and Medicaid benefits in both Texas and New Mexico. Using a relative’s address, she raked in nearly $50,000 in benefits from New Mexico alone, on top of the welfare benefits she received in Texas. An investigation prompted by the Office of Inspector General led to a 2012 indictment and eventual plea agreement. Sadly, stories like O’Neal’s are far too common. Thousands of individuals across the country receive welfare benefits in states they no longer live in, in states they’ve never lived in, or even in multiple states at once....
