    Gun-wielding FBI agents busted into Paul Manafort’s home as he was asleep in bed and even searched his wife for weapons, it was revealed Tuesday. Agents took an unusually tough approach in executing a search warrant, dealing with potential financial crimes by President Trump’s former campaign chief, sources familiar with the July 25 raid, told CNN. The pre-dawn, guns-blazing tactics and weapons search of Kathleen Manafort left the Alexandria, Va. couple shaken, according to CNN’s report. Manafort is in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller, as he probes Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election. Mueller’s dovetail investigation of...

  • Army: Illegal immigrant enlistment contracts voided.

    09/15/2017 11:58:54 AM PDT · by Uncle Sam 911 · 41 replies ^ | 9/15/17 | Alex Horton
    U.S. Army recruiters have abruptly canceled enlistment contracts for hundreds of foreign-born military recruits since last week, upending their lives and potentially exposing many to deportation, according to several affected recruits and a former Army officer familiar with their situation. Many of these enlistees have waited years to join a troubled immigration recruitment program designed to attract highly skilled immigrants into the service in exchange for fast-track citizenship. Now recruits and experts say that recruiters are shedding their contracts to free themselves from an onerous enlistment process to focus on individuals who can more quickly enlist and thus satisfy strict...

    White supremacist Richard Spencer isn't welcome on LSU's campus following violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend. “We will take the necessary precautions to ensure that our campus is safe from violence, that our students and faculty are safe from people trying to stir up troubles,” LSU President F. King Alexander told The Advocate. Spencer’s people have been making calls to LSU officials trying to arrange a visit to Baton Rouge, Alexander said. “He’s not welcome,” he said.

    The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program — this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States. The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

Richard Spencer, the white supremacist who helped found the so-called alt-right movement, was set to speak at the event, according to the Battalion, Texas A&M's student newspaper.

    A top Environmental Protection Agency official resigned Tuesday in protest of the direction the EPA has taken under President Trump. Elizabeth "Betsy" Southerland ended her 30-year run at the agency with a scathing exit letter in which she claimed that “the environmental field is suffering from the temporary triumph of myth over truth.” She last worked as the director of science and technology in the Office of Water. “The truth is there is NO war on coal, there is NO economic crisis caused by environmental protection, and climate change IS caused by man’s activities,” Southerland wrote, directly rejecting many of...

    Elliott was one of 20 to 30 members of the motorcycle group, Ruthless Ryderz, who were riding on the northbound 15 Freeway near Weirick Road just before 10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The group was causing traffic woes on the freeway as members slowed and blocked motorists so that riders “could perform illegal stunts on the freeway,” CHP Sgt. Nathan Baer said in a statement. As the group slowed traffic for their stunt show, Elliott stood up onto the seat of his 2014 Kawasaki motorcycle, the sergeant said. Elliott, who was not holding onto the handlebars, lost...

    A simple choice between good and evil. "When society no longer recognizes an absolute, society will then become its own absolute." Just the other day an adult male (I’d rather not call him a ‘man’) went into a Muncie, Indiana Goodwill store and began preaching Islam. In the course of his sharing the glad tidings of the religion of peace, he snatched an elderly woman by her throat and began choking her while screeching, “Allahu Akbar!” The weirdo was identified as Khaliad Bilal. Sounds like a Hispanic or maybe Irish name, to me - though I want to avoid profiling....

    Tomi Lahren, The Blaze TV host who once declared herself “too controversial” for Fox News, is back in the job market today. Page Six is reporting Lahren is “permanently banned” from The Blaze TV, where she hosted “Tomi,” a daily news talk show. The departure does not come as a surprise to most media observers. Lahren, who boasts 4.2 million Facebook fans, was suspended all of last week for comments she made on The View, calling conservatives hypocrites for being for smaller government and pro-life. The Blaze is owned by conservative radio host Glenn Beck, and the company has recently...

Organizer Edgar Ramirez said as many as 15,000 gather from as far as New England and Chicago.

    An East Georgia town mourns the loss of a local teen over the weekend who was shot after a girl sneaked him into her house and her dad mistook him for an intruder. A burglary call brought police to a home in the overnight hours Saturday, but before officers arrived, the teen was dead. It turns out the victim, 17-year-old Jordan Middleton, was a friend of the homeowner’s daughter. The homeowner, Derrick Fulton, told police he heard noises downstairs, so he got his handgun from a dresser. When he got downstairs, the family’s dog led him to the guest bedroom....

    Paul Ryan addressed former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s resignation during House Republicans’ weekly press conference Tuesday morning. The House Speaker had just been asked if “the American public [deserves] to know whether the President of the United States directed Mike Flynn to talk to the Russian ambassador about the issues of sanctions during the transition period,” to which he responded by taking “a step back for a second.” “National security is perhaps the most important financial or responsibility a president has, and I think the President made the right decision to ask for his resignation,” Ryan told the room...

    President Donald Trump said on Friday that Syrian Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States. "If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians," Trump said in an excerpt of an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.

    Sean Spicer pissed off journalists and liberals yet again Tuesday by calling on a conservative outlet first at his press briefing. On Monday, the press corps was up in arms after Spicer called on the New York Post. But the response was much more heated Tuesday after Spicer called on Laura Ingraham’s LifeZette. Brietbart and Lifezette are not news organizations and shouldn’t be treated as such — Joel Pavelski (@joelcifer) January 24, 2017 Lifezette, a blog run by Laura Ingraham that has repeatedly engaged in conspiracy theories/lies, got first question at WH Press Briefing. — Yashar (@yashar) January 24, 2017

    Over recent years, you’ve no doubt noticed an unnerving trend among leftists. They tend to be snot gobbling sewer beasts. Not only in terms of spirit but physical appearance. As it turns out it’s not just your imagination, the facts agree with us on the matter. According to a recent study, numbers confirm that beauty is more often associated with conservatism. A happy coincidence…
