A counter-protest by leftist groups is planned with County Executive March Ehrlich as a speaker. (One counter-group passed along a rumor Donald Trump Jr. may appear at the pro-ICE rally: "There...

    A Washington state police chief who took a stand in refusing to enforce elements of the state’s widely encompassing new gun control package is now running for Governor of the state. He’s making a pledge to restore the gun rights of Washingtonians a central message of his campaign. Loren Culp is the police chief of Republic, Washington. He was praised by gun owners and vilified by liberal prosecutors for his constitutional refusal to enforce parts of a massive gun control law enacted in 2018.

    Some Austin business owners say the homeless problem is now a homeless crisis. One downtown business owner says he may start closing early to keep employees and customers safe...In June, the Austin City Council changed the homeless ordinances to allow sitting, lying and camping in more public spaces, including sidewalks. Staley says that's when one homeless man moved in. “All his belongings are right here up against our patio and we can't do anything about it. We can't. The police can't,” said Staley. The patio on Congress Avenue was designed as a shady spot for tourists and locals to grab...

    If Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone were a real progressive, he would supply drug addicts with free heroin, fentanyl and methadone at his proposed safe injection sites. It is only what a truly concerned and caring liberal would do, even if it is illegal. Otherwise drug users, looking for a safe place to shoot up — which Curtatone wants to provide — would face an awkward BYOD ( Bring Your Own Drugs) situation. The mayor, who hopes to e

    The charges involve at least seven homicides, many of which were recorded by the perpetrators, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke to The Times on condition of anonymity in order to discuss the case candidly. Most of the killings involved knives or machetes, and several of the victims’ bodies were dumped in remote, hilly, areas, the officials said. Some of the suspects were high school students at the time of the slayings, one official said.
  • Judicial Watch: Illegal Aliens Released from Local Custody Commit More Crimes

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 16, 2019
    Following a Judicial Watch lawsuit, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has reinstated a reporting system that informs the public about illegal immigrants who commit crimes after being released from state or local custody. The offenders are shielded by sanctuary policies that ban local law enforcement from honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers placed on illegal aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges. If the detainer is honored ICE takes custody and deports the criminal rather than release him or her back into the community. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious...

    New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the federal lawsuit on Monday. Albuquerque, NM – The State of New Mexico and the sanctuary city of Albuquerque have filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for releasing too many immigrants into the state’s border cities. The lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico on Monday, alleged that President Trump’s administration has enacted an “indiscriminate practice of releasing migrants in communities,” in violation of the federal “safe release” policy, KVIA reported. The federal “safe release” policy was canceled in October of 2018 due to the...
  • 2 men open fire at Philadelphia playground, wounding 7

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities say two men opened fire at a crowded west Philadelphia playground, wounding seven people. Police say several hundred people were at Baker Playground in the city’s Overbrook neighborhood, where a cookout and basketball games were taking place, when the gunfire began just before 9 p.m. Saturday. One person was shot several times, while others were wounded in the arms or legs or had graze wounds to the face or head. All were reported in stable condition. Philadelphia’s police commissioner, Richard Ross, said the 18- to 25-year-old shooters weren’t firing at each other, but into the crowd....

    No UN-recommended census question on citizenship, no ending of the arbitrary Obama DACA executive order (which had been rejected in Congress), no measly $6 billion for a border wall to stop a border surge of more than a million expected illegal invaders, no ability to even change one's legal team. The leftist courts up until now have always found merit on the thwart-Trump side, saying yes to any activist request, including the really stupid one from the Sierra Club, with the Supreme Court ruling that yes, the Sierra Club has a right to enjoy its scenery so President Trump can't...

    The Portland Police Bureau said it would not be cooperating with any federal agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in potential immigration raids promised by President Donald Trump this weekend, the agency said Sunday. State law prohibits local law enforcement agencies from using “agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws." Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw said there were numerous factors causing fear in Oregon’s immigrant communities. "Now more than...

    AP via MSN ^ | 07/12/2019 | Appeals court gives Trump a win in sanctuary city case
    A federal appeals court gave President Donald Trump a rare legal win in his efforts to crack down on "sanctuary cities" Friday, upholding the Justice Department's decision to give preferential treatment in awarding community policing grants to cities that cooperate with immigration authorities. The 2-1 opinion overturned a nationwide injunction issued by a federal judge in Los Angeles. The court said awarding extra points in the application process to cities that cooperate was consistent with the goals of the grant program created by Congress.

    VIDEO Who could have believed even in the recent past that one day a major American city such as Los Angeles would be afflicted by the threat of typhus and bubonic plague? Those diseases, which were associated with medieval times, now threaten the people of Los Angeles. So what is the major concern of its mayor? To oppose Donald Trump by openly opposing enforcement of immigration laws via its "sanctuary city" policy. No wonder there is a recall petition for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who has FAILED in his most basic duty of protecting the citizens of that city.

    The skies grew dark Saturday afternoon as tornado alerts buzzed cell phones across the city. Which might have explained the initial lackluster turnout for an Independence Mall protest against President Donald Trump — the third in Philadelphia in a week. But eventually, as a steady rain began to fall, three dozen protesters were listening as organizers with Refuse Fascism Philly played an audio recording published by ProPublica in 2018 of immigrant children separated from their families at the Mexican border. Chanting, “Close the camps! Trump, Pence must go!” protesters then marched with police escorts to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement...

    Start the Counter Revolution that will take your country back and start it today The only way to take back your country (any country) begins and ends with reclaiming your own hometown by running your own candidates for mayors, councillors and school board trustees in the very next election. It’s an idea for a Counter Revolution, whose time came a long time ago but has been virtually ignored until now. It is not at the federal level of government where the shift to socialism can be stopped in its tracks, but at the largely ignored civic or municipal level.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for New Yorkers to support a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to acquire a driver’s license, making the desperate plea in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday. On Wednesday, the Democrat-led New York State House passed a bill– dubbed the “Green Light” bill– which would allow illegal immigrants in the state to acquire a driver’s license. It passed with overwhelming support– 86 to 47. The bill is expected to struggle in the state Senate, with many concerned over the potential for abuse. Voter fraud is among those concerns. “There...

    A city council in Waskom, Texas, outlawed abortion procedures Wednesday and declared the city a sanctuary for the unborn. The move was pushed by Right to Life of East Texas and precedes another bill Texas lawmakers are pushing, which would require doctors to care for babies born alive following botched abortions. Abortions are not permitted in the state of Texas after 20 weeks, The Washington Post reports. Waskom sits on the Texas and Louisiana border and is the first city in Texas to declare such a measure. There are no abortion clinics in Waskom. “Congratulations Waskom, Texas for becoming the...

    by Brian Hayes The sanctuary city of Prince George’s County, Maryland is defending itself after releasing two illegal alien MS-13 Gang members who went on to allegedly murder a 14-year-old girl. And the key official involved is actually justifying it! During a press conference on Wednesday, the Prince George’s County jail director told local media that the sanctuary jurisdiction does not honor detainers by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to hold criminal illegal aliens in custody so they can be deported. And their outrageous response is angering thousands in the community. “A detainer is not a warrant,...

    The City of Oakland is in such dire financial straits that it is planning to use $2.9 million from state gas tax revenues to keep the city’s lights on, rather than using the money to fix pothole-riddled roads, for which the funding was intended. The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the city is facing severe financial shortfalls, despite a booming economy that has seen wealthier households relocate from San Francisco across the bay to gentrifying neighborhoods. The problem is that the city’s costs are rising faster than its growing revenues, thanks partly to pension obligations — an increasingly common...

    Since March 31, 2019 the CDC has confirmed more than 600 cases of the Candida auris fungus across the U.S. Over half of those cases occurred in New York. The fungus has been found in hospitals and nursing homes, and may be deadly for those with weakened immune systems such as the elderly, newborns and the chronically ill.
