Former Immigration Officer: Many Illegals Can Vote with Fake Documents

A former immigration officer says many illegal aliens can vote in national elections, in part because they can easily buy fake identification documents. “I probably arrested more than a thousand illegal aliens in my career,” retired ICE Special-Agent-In-Charge Claude Arnold said during an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. “I routinely encounter people in possession of voter registration cards… I would ask them, ‘Do you or have you voted?’ And often, I would get the answer, yes,” he said, adding that about 100 illegals told him that they had voted. Illegals can vote because they can get realistic fake documents, he said. “The demand is so great for counterfeit documents because the illegal alien population wants to work—that’s the majority of their motivation for wanting to come to this country,” he said. “So there’s a huge demand for those documents that are required to pass the employment eligibility verification procedures,” he added. “In every neighborhood where there’s a significant illegal alien population, there are at least several document vendors who supply this service.” Illegals typically buy fraudulent documents in threes, he continued: A counterfeit resident alien card or work authorization card, plus a counterfeit California driver’s license, and a counterfeit Social Security card, which costs about $120 to $300. Arnold’s interview comes after President-elect Donald Trump declared he would would have won the popular vote if millions who voted illegally were discounted. Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime ally of Hillary Clinton, ignored his state’s supreme court ruling and illegally gave 60,000 felons voter registration cards. Also, at least eight million adult illegal aliens are residing in the United States in defiance of the law. The media did not investigate these claims, automatically declaring them “false” with much outrage and finger-wagging. Still, voting experts have told reporters at the Daily Mail that it’s likely illegal aliens, non-citizens, and other ineligible people, did vote in significant numbers on Election Day:

Of course they did!  And, dead people as well as dogs apparently voted.  This has been documented also.  To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.

Analysis: No, Obama, you presided over a loss of manufacturing jobs, and failed to deliver on exports

So there was a little snark from the White House after President-elect Donald Trump announced he saved about 1,000 jobs in Indiana after negotiating with the air conditioning firm Carrier. “If [Mr. Trump] is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he will meet the record of manufacturing jobs created in the United States while President Obama was in office,” Josh Earnest, the White House’s press secretary said on Tuesday. Except Mr. Obama actually presided over a loss of manufacturing jobs. According to manufacturing employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since Mr. Obama took office in 2009, the U.S. has lost about 303,000 manufacturing jobs. I’m not sure how one even spins that into a positive. Moreover, in his 2012 re-election campaign, Mr. Obama promised to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs by the end of this year, and said he was working to double American exports over the next five years, but statistics show he’s fallen short on both measures. Between the time he made the promise and October 2016 (the most recent data available), the number of manufacturing jobs only rose by 297,000 — far below the 1 million jobs he promised. Now on to exports. When Mr. Obama retook office in 2012, U.S. exports were $2.2 trillion. Projections for 2016 are expected to be about $2.2 trillion. So, we’ve gone four years without any material change and we’re a long way off from doubling the number. So, I guess Mr. Trump’s 1,000 saved jobs doesn’t look too bad, after all. He’s not even in office yet.

Judge Jeanine: Clinton Foundation is ‘Bubbling Beneath the Surface’

President-elect Donald Trump has said he likely won’t appoint a special prosecutor to go after Clinton despite promising to do so during the campaign. However Judge Jeanine Pirro, host of Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine, says there are plenty of reasons to move forward with a case. “The Clinton Foundation… as my sources tell me, it is bubbling beneath the surface. The laptops are still there that we were told were destroyed. The immunity and all of these forgiveness agreements are not necessarily in place going forward,” she said during an interview on the FOX Business Network’s Varney & Co. “The amazing thing is that the Clinton Foundation has not received one dime from some countries since she lost. The pay-to-play is in your face,” she noted. While the President-elect is busy building his new cabinet and pressuring big companies to keep jobs in the U.S., Clinton has kept a low profile. Even so, Pirro isn’t willing to give her a pass, if she engaged in illegal activities. “I think if she violated the law, she needs to be held responsible like everyone else,” she said. “When I was a judge, if a defense attorney came up to me and said you know what, this guy is an orphan because he killed his mother and father, you need to forgive and forget… that is chutzpah” she said. “No one is above the law [and] no one is below the law,” she added. The FBI has an active probe into the Clinton Foundation, according to Fox News.

Florida Homeowner Opens Fire, Killing Home Invasion Suspect During 911 Call

On Monday, a Sunrise, Florida, homeowner used a shotgun to open fire on three home invasion suspects, killing one and causing the remaining two to flee the scene. According to ABC News, homeowner Warren Darlow called 911 to report that three males had pulled into his driveway and were walking toward his home. He did not know them and worried that their intention was to rob the residence. Darlow talked to the police dispatcher, saying, “I got three black males at my house. Two jumped out. They’re getting ready to jump the fence.” He continued talking to the dispatcher until the three suspects allegedly shattered a glass door on the back the home, at which point, Darlow whispered, “Help. They’re in my house right now.” The next sound on the dispatch audio is of Darlow firing three blasts from a shotgun: Darlow missed all three suspects with the first shot, but he struck 21-year-old Albert Jones with the second. He said he saw Jones “reach toward something,” so he fired again. When the 911 dispatcher asked Darlow to clarify what was happening, he said, “I killed one, I think.” The other two suspects, 23-year-old Jose Coleman and 26-year-old Curtis Jefferies, fled the scene but were later apprehended by police.

As a follow up to this story..  No charges were filed against the homeowner.  The two thugs who got away were later arrested by police and THEY will be charged with murder per Florida state law.  How great is that?!?  Talk about karma!!    Another example of why it is SO important to arm yourself.   These worthless pieces of garbage would have killed this homeowner who was simply home paying video games when he saw them pull into his driveway.   But, he did the right thing by dialing 911 and then exercising his Second Amendment rights by standing his ground in his home.  Outstanding!

Hampshire College relents after veterans protest, raises American flag on campus

The American flag once again flies over Hampshire College. A tumultuous November in Amherst, Massachusetts, that involved stolen and burned American flags may be followed by a calmer December. Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash announced Friday that a moratorium on flying the flag has ended. The decision comes less than one week since roughly 1,000 veterans descended upon the campus to protest the flag’s absence. “This morning we raised the United States flag to full staff at Hampshire College after a two-week discussion period about what the flag means to members of the Hampshire community,” Mr. Lash said on the school’s website. “College leadership, including the board of trustees, had decided on November 18 to lower the flag for a time to encourage uninhibited expression of deeply held viewpoints.” “We are alarmed by the overt hate and threats, especially toward people in marginalized communities, which have escalated in recent weeks. We did not lower the flag to make a political statement. Nor did we intend to cause offense to veterans, military families, or others for whom the flag represents service and sacrifice. We acted solely to facilitate much-needed dialogue on our campus about how to dismantle the bigotry that is prevalent in our society. We understand that many who hold the flag as a powerful symbol of national ideals and their highest aspirations for the country — including members of our own community — felt hurt by our decisions, and that we deeply regret.” Hampshire College attracted national attention earlier this month after Republican Donald Trump’s presidential election victory on Nov. 8. The school’s flag was stolen and a replacement was burned before dawn on Veterans Day. The situation spiraled completely out of control when administrators decided to fly the flag at half-staff as “an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally.” A throng of veterans arrived on campus Nov. 27 to condemn the school’s actions. “I was in Iraq 18 months. I got hurt, spent time at Walter Reed. I came home and there’s no way I’ll let anyone take down the flag, no way. It means a lot to me and my brothers,” veteran David Soucy told a local NBC affiliate. Mr. Lash said Friday that he would continue to have “multiple focus group sessions” with students, faculty, and staff who have questions about the flag.

If you haven’t seen the Water’s World episode about this, Google it.  This town is SO liberal, that city hall has flying on the flagpole outside….the United Nations flag.  And, no I’m not making that up, and no this isn’t the Onion.  So, this bed-wetting, thumb-sucking extreme liberal college president doesn’t surprise us one bit.  He probably didn’t envision the kind of backlash he’d get for taking down Old Glory like that.  In the end, he made the right decision after enough pressure from vets, and probably many alums.

 

Obama races to impose tougher greenhouse gas rules, and much more

The Obama administration is introducing a last-minute barrage of costly environmental regulation pronouncements that Republicans have vowed to repeal as soon as possible after Donald Trump’s January 20 presidential inauguration. The recent outpouring adds to the administration’s dubious record of producing more than 600 major regulations — those estimated to cost more than $100 million each — during its tenure, according to a study by the American Action Forum, a Washington-based think tank. Case in point: an announcement by the Environmental Protection Agency, one of the administration’s most energetic rule-makers, on Wednesday that after lengthy study, it would push ahead with tougher greenhouse gas emission standards, equivalent to 54.1 miles per gallon fuel efficiency, for passenger cars and light trucks for the years 2022-2025. EPA says the standards will prevent emission of some 6 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases over the vehicles’ life span. Technically speaking, EPA’s administrator has until April 18, 2017, to make a so-called “final determination” about the rules — but is doing it sooner, the agency says, for reasons of “long-term regulatory certainty and stability.” Translation: EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy is certain to be out of the job by then, and the ruling will likely hit a brick wall in a much more climate-skeptical Trump administration. The public has until December 30 — three weeks before Inauguration Day — to comment on the move. Within hours, the EPA announcement was decried by Sen, Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, as “another administrative avenue for President Obama to force his climate ideologies on American businesses and consumers,” through a fuel economy program that is “broken and rife with inequalities.” Inhofe said he looked forward “to working in the next Congress with the new administration to pare back all of the legacy-saving regulatory actions this administration will continue to advance as their January 20 deadline approaches.” Inhofe’s legacy-saving jibe was apt enough: the fuel economy final determination makes explicit reference to the Paris climate agreement signed by the U.S. and more than 190 other countries, which also came into force this month — and from which President-elect Trump vowed on the campaign trail to withdraw (Trump has since declared he is “keeping an open mind” about the document.) Moreover, the determination, while it makes no additional regulations post-2025, makes the case for further emissions reductions, averaging 4.3 percent annually, for the following quarter-century in order to meet the long-term goals of the Paris agreement. Cars and trucks are hardly the only products to get the eleventh-hour regulatory treatment from EPA and other agencies, in the waning months of the administration. In August, EPA and the Department of Transportation finalized additional follow-on standards through 2027 for emissions from medium- and heavy-duty trucks and other vehicles that the agencies said would save 1.1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases, even while they pushed up the price of big trucks by some $14,000 by some estimates. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx called the new rules “a huge win for the American people.” The estimated cost of the regulation, according to American Action Forum, is about $29.3 billion. The EPA’s first-ever regulations covering methane emissions from the oil and gas industry were finalized in May, and significantly toughened from an earlier version. They are now the focus of a court battle led by the state of Texas, which called the tough emission standards a “gross demonstration of federal over-reach.”

No kidding!!  No wonder our national debt has crossed the $20 TRILLION dollar mark!!  Thankfully, Donald Trump has vowed to make repealing many of these onerous and costly (and mostly unconstitutional) regulations one of his first acts as President.  Unreal..

FBI: Islamic State and Al-Qaeda Cleric Inspired Ohio State Attacker

The Somali college student who used a vehicle and a butcher knife to attack people at Ohio State University (OSU) this week was inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and deceased Yemeni-American al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the FBI. “At this time, we are not aware of anyone else being involved in the planning of this attack, but the investigation continues,” said Angela L. Byers, the special agent in charge of the FBI office in Cincinnati, reported the New York Times (NYT). “It appears that [the attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan] may have at least been inspired by Anwar Awlaki and the Islamic State.” Citing two unnamed law enforcement sources, CNN added, “The sources point to Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s Facebook posts before his short-lived rampage on the Columbus campus. The posts referenced Awlaki, who was a leader of al Qaeda in Yemen. Sources also note the style of the attack was encouraged by ISIS in a recent online magazine.” Artan injured 11 people before he was shot dead by law enforcement. Although ISIS considers al-Qaeda to be its rival, various ISIS members and other Sunni jihadists have been known to be fans of Awlaki. The U.S. government executed Awlaki, but his propaganda has inspired some domestic attacks in the United States in the years after his death. Artan, a permanent U.S. resident born in Somalia, praised the radical American-born al-Qaeda cleric as a “hero” in a Facebook rant he posted just minutes before ramming his car into a cluster of pedestrians and then slashing some of them with a butcher knife Monday morning. “I am sick and tired of seeing [Muslims] killed & tortured everywhere,” he added, according to media reports. “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace,” Artan also wrote. “We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. Despite ISIS claiming responsibility for the attack, investigators believe it was a lone wolf attack. Investigators are going through “the detailed analysis of electronic devices, social media accounts and other materials” linked to Artan and “have conducted dozens of interviews with family members, co-workers, neighbors and others,” noted Byers from the FBI. Artan spent seven years in Pakistan, a terrorist breeding ground, before entering the United States as a refugee in 2014.

And to think that when this story broke, local law enforcement in Ohio were tripping all over themselves saying they couldn’t say if this was terrorist related or not.  We, of course, could tell instantly what this was.  THIS is what Obama has so foolishly been importing into our country by the THOUSANDS.  Keep this in mind the next time you hear some self-righteous, sanctimonious, liberal talking head on tv whine about Trump wanting to put a moratorium on immigrants from middle eastern, and northern Africa countries.  That’s just basic common sense; something the agenda-driven, dominantly liberal mainstream media (and most Democrat politicians) don’t have.
