Comments: Mexico´s contribution to the balance of trade: huge amounts of meth and heroin brought over our wide-open southern border. Imagine the cost to the taxpayers in supporting the drug addicts in hospitals and in prisons, not to mention the cost to people whom the addicts burgle and rob in order to support their habits.
Coming from a retired LEO...this is a drop in the bucket. Despite the bleeding hearts "oh it´s the children it´s woman" bovine scatology. It is cartel, it is drugs, human trafficking, murder, money laundering and sex business. It is what it is and it´s not "JUST" Mexican citizens here illegally. it is Guatamalians...MS 13..educate yourself.
One of the country´s most infamous rapists is set to be released from prison. John Worboys, known as the ´black cab rapist´, was jailed for raping and sexually assaulting 12 passengers in 2009. He was accused of carrying out sexual assaults on more than a hundred women after spiking their drinks. At his sentencing Worboys was told he must serve a minimum of eight years in prison for his attacks and would not be released until officials were convinced he did not pose a threat to women. (Snip) He will now have to report to probation staff each week, having spent ten years
Berlin — The recent influx of mostly young, male migrants into Germany has led to an increase in violent crime in the country, according to a government-funded study published Wednesday. The study used figures from the northern state of Lower Saxony to examine the impact of refugee arrivals on crime in 2015 and 2016, a period when the number of violent crimes reported increased by 10.4 percent. The authors concluded that 92 percent of the additional crimes recorded could be attributed to the increase in refugee numbers. (Snip) The findings add to the ongoing debate in Germany about how to tackle migrant crime,
One person has been stabbed to death and two others have been injured in what is being described as a series of ´random attacks´ in Ireland. Gardai are said to have arrested a heavily-armed teenager born in North Africa and officers are investigating if three separate incidents are terror related. The knife attack happened shortly before 9am in Dundalk and the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Local sources have identified the attacker as an 18-year-old Egyptian, the Irish Times reports. (Snip) The stabbing victim is a 24-year-old Japanese man, according to RTE, and the two injured
State authorities set a record in 2017 by seizing $6.6 million worth of illegal tobacco products, a $1 million jump over 2016. The 2016 seizures, in turn, marked a increase from the year before. Indeed, for each of the past three years, the state has steadily boosted inspections — and wound up grabbing more illegal products. (Snip) Illegal cigs today actually outnumber legal ones, making up 57 percent of the market. Why? Rising tobacco taxes, which have soared 190 percent since then. State and local cig taxes ($5.85 a pack, in total) are a powerful incentive for crooks: If they can get
Hospitals were last night ordered to cancel thousands of operations to try to tackle a winter health crisis. In an unprecedented move, NHS chiefs demanded radical action to free up beds and medical staff. Casualty units are under ´extreme and sustained´ pressure with flu cases on the rise. Up to 55,000 non-urgent operations will be postponed until February, along with thousands of outpatient appointments and scans. (Snip) Two NHS bosses said the pressures were the worst in 30 years with one doctor apologising for ´Third World´ conditions. The first week of January is always busy with patients coming in with flu
Police near Atlanta, Georgia are looking for a woman who allegedly attacked a store clerk over the price of a hair weave. Surveillance video shows the customer throwing merchandise and punches in the Duluth store. Venus Beauty Supply workers say the Wednesday night confrontation began after customer Melissa Roper and her daughter didn’t like the price of a weave, and the lack of customer service they apparently wanted. Roper’s daughter threw the product at the clerk, then the clerk threw it right back. (Snip) Then the clerk followed the mother-daughter duo, and that’s when things turned violent.
Two people have been arrested in the quadruple homicide that took the lives of two women and two children in their upstate New York apartment. Justin Mann, 24, and James White, 38, were arraigned in Troy City Court around 8.30am Saturday after being arrested Friday night. Both men face four counts each of second-degree and one count each of first-degree murder. (Snip) According to Chief Tedesco, Mann is on parole and both have criminal records.

The number of United States-born children who were given birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien living in the country now outnumbers one year of all American births. A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report reveals the booming number of U.S.-born children to illegal aliens who are given automatic citizenship, forever anchoring their families in the U.S. These children are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. through the process known as “chain migration.” Every two new immigrants to the U.S.
Albany — The Trump administration on Friday delivered what could be a crippling blow to the mammoth multibillion-dollar project to build a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River. In a letter to New York and New Jersey officials, a top Federal Transit Administration official signaled that the Trump administration would not recognize the agreement struck under former President Barack Obama that called for the federal government to pay half the cost of the project. (Snip) “We consider it unhelpful to reference a nonexistent ‘agreement’ rather than directly address the responsibility for funding a local project where nine out of 10 passengers
President Trump mocked the science behind climate change in a tweet Thursday night that claimed the frigid East Coast could actually use more global warming. “In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record,” Trump noted about the freezing temperatures in New York and other cities. “Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!” (Snip) Trump’s claim that the agreement will cost “TRILLIONS” apparently comes from a conservative Heritage Foundation. Their estimate was
An appellate court Thursday upheld a penalty against Oregon bakery owners who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding almost five years ago. The owners of the since-closed Gresham bakery - Aaron and Melissa Klein - argued that state Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian violated state and federal laws by forcing them to pay emotional-distress damages of $135,000 to the lesbian couple Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer. (Snip) First Liberty Institute, the legal organization that represents the Kleins, disagreed with the ruling. ´The Oregon Court of Appeals decided that Aaron and Melissa Klein are not entitled to the Constitution´s promises
Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean criticized President Trump´s continued entanglement with his business interests in an interview Tuesday night on MSNBC. ´This guy, I´ve said for a long time, I think he´s running a criminal enterprise out of the White House,´ Dean charged. (Snip) ´It is pretty clear that he is shaking down foreign governments, or his staff is shaking down foreign governments, who have moved their events to his hotel in Washington at somebody´s request in order to get favors,´ Dean said, labeling Trump´s actions a ´criminal enterprise.´ ´And I think that´s what Bob Mueller´s on the track
MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was momentarily speechless after he once asked him, “Can you read?” There was “awkward silence,” Scarborough wrote in an op-ed published Thursday in The Washington Post. Scarborough said the exchange occurred in a “tense meeting” he and his co-host Mika Brzezinski had with Trump after a debate in September 2015. “’I’m serious, Donald. Do you read?’ I continued. ‘If someone wrote you a one-page paper on a policy, could you read it?’” Scarborough recounted of his follow-up. Trump was “taken aback” and quietly replied that “he could while holding up
A bombshell report released on Thursday reveals that former FBI Director James Comey´s memo on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there was "evidence to support a conclusion" that she committed a felony before subordinates removed multiple references of incriminating terms and deleted mentions of evidence that supported felony and misdemeanor criminal acts.The website of Senate Homeland and Government Affairs Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) released the full draft of Comey’s memo on Clinton, including the edits to the draft. The Hill reports: The full draft, with edits, leaves little doubt that Comey originally wrote on May 2,
Democrats have been quoting from the infamous anti-Trump “Steele dossier” as if it were gospel, but now that Hillary Clinton has been revealed as its paymaster and a Hillary-friendly FBI is under investigation for possibly launching the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe under its false pretenses, they are suddenly in full retreat from it. Their credibility is in tatters along with the discredited document. Rep. Adam Schiff, who’s led the Democrats’ “collusion” inquisition as vice chair of the House Intelligence Committee, fully embraced the dossier from the moment the panel kicked off a public hearing in March with then-FBI Director James Comey.
President Donald Trump doesn’t read either because he’s ‘semi-literate’ or suffers from dyslexia and he also prefers to surround himself with ´office wives,´ according to claims in a bombshell new book about the inner workings of the White House. Author Michael Wolff’s book about the first year of the Trump presidency, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, went on sale Friday after juicy tidbits appeared in a number of media outlets. One of the claims made in the book regards the level of Trump’s reading comprehension and his ability to take in new information. ‘Trump didn’t read,’ Wolff writes. ‘He didn’t
Barbra Streisand took to Twitter on Thursday to share her thoughts about Trump and the GOP’s new tax plan. “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that blue states, athletes, actors, writers, producers, and directors will be punished by this scam of a tax bill, where billionaires get billions, and the middle class gets bupkis (practically nothing) – and an eventual tax increase,” Streisand wrote.
The ladies of ABC’s “The View” just could not shake the Fox News in Greta Van Susteren during her Thursday appearance. She’s ex-Fox News now, having said it hadn’t felt like home for a few years. She even did a stint on their favorite MSNBC before that network canned her and replaced her with Ari Melber. But to no avail. Even MSNBC couldn’t wash away her Fox News stench. No matter what Van Susteren said, she just could not get the ladies to warm to her. Greta was on the show to guest host at the “Hot Topics” table and discuss her
Just when you thought the Big Freeze couldn’t get any worse, here’s Al Gore to twist the knife. It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis. https://t.co/6UfJ9Xxpq6 — Al Gore (@algore) January 4, 2018 Yep. Where others might see a crisis, Al Gore has spotted a Rahm-Emanuel-style opportunity to promote his renewables scam. This bitter cold, he wants you to know, isn’t a sign that his global warming theory is a busted flush. It’s a sign that he’s even more right than ever before! Well, you’ve got
LONDON - The author of a book that is highly critical of Donald Trump’s first year as U.S. president said his revelations were likely to bring an end to Trump’s time in the White House. Michael Wolff told BBC radio that his conclusion in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”-- that Trump is not fit to do the job -- was becoming a widespread view. “I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect,” Wolff said in an interview broadcast on Saturday. “The story that I have told seems to present
First, a few thoughts on the DOJ´s reported interest in taking another look at Hillary Clinton´s protocol-violating and national security-compromising email server, a scandal about which she lied repeatedly: (1) I´d be a bit surprised if DOJ ends up pursuing charges, as that ship likely sailed when James Comey (wrongly, in my view) chose not to recommend prosecution in July 2016. (2) I´m somewhat uncomfortable seeing the supposedly-independent Justice Department clearly bowing to incessant political pressure from the president on this subject. It´s true that President Obama telegraphed his preferred outcome
The internet is going wild over a photo of the openly gay son of newly sworn-in Senator Doug Jones staring icily at arch-conservative Vice President Mike Pence. Jones, a Democrat, took the oath of office on Wednesday after his surprise victory over Republican Roy Moore in last month’s special elections for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. American political tradition holds that the vice president, whose constitutional powers make him the president of the Senate, conducts the swearing-in ceremony for each new senator elected to the chamber. In the viral photo taken Wednesday in the Senate, Jones
The illegal immigrant and seven-time felon who was acquitted of murder and assault in the 2015 San Francisco fatal shooting of 32-year old Kate Steinle was sentenced to three years in prison on Friday. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was credited for time served. He will be on parole for 48 months and will remain in custody to face federal charges. (Photos) The case sparked national debate over immigration reform and so-called Sanctuary Cities that shield illegals from deportation, of which San Francisco is one.The felony possession was the only conviction to come out of Garcia Zarate’s trial in November.

President Trump on Saturday launched a remarkable defense of his mental fitness for office, calling himself a “very stable genius” and “like, really smart.” Trump made the defense in a series of tweets that appeared to push back on questions raised by a new book that painted a chaotic and dysfunctional picture of his campaign and early months of his presidency. “Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump tweeted. The president said doubts about his mental capacity have been frequently raised by his critics, but he proved them wrong
