Sessions

Urging prosecutors to crack down on undocumented immigrants who are known criminals, on Tuesday, the Department of Justice instructed employees to step up “criminal immigration enforcement.”

In a speech to Customs and Border Protection, along the US-Mexico border, in Nogales, Arizona, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Justice Department will add 50 immigration judges this year, and 75 in the next year.

“We mean international criminal organizations that turn cities and suburbs into war zones, that rape and kill innocent civilians, and who profit by smuggling poison and other human beings across our borders. Depravity and violence are their calling cards, including brutal machete attacks, even beheadings,” Sessions said. “They threaten the very integrity of our nations and our hemisphere. It is here on this sliver of land, on this border, where we first take our stand. It is a direct threat to our legal system and to our peace and prosperity.”

Sessions had planned to say “where we first take our stand against this filth,” but slightly strayed from his prepared speech. His line quickly spread on social media. However, it is not uncommon for Sessions to go through his speeches as planned.

“In this fight, I am here to tell you, the brave men and women of the Customs and Border Protection: We hear you. We hear your concerns. We have your back. Under the president’s leadership and guided by his executive orders, we will secure this border and bring the full weight of both the immigration courts and the federal enforcement and prosecutor to combat this attack on our national security and our sovereignty,” he said.

During the speech, Sessions said that he has directed federal prosecutors to “consider for prosecution” any crimes including the harboring or transferring of undocumented immigrants. Among other offenses included in the directive for prosecution are assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated identity theft, and document fraud.

Sessions announced that any undocumented immigrants who enter the US illegally, after being removed will be “referred for felony prosecution.”

Furthermore, the attorney general said that the department’s focus under this administration would be to secure the border, dismantle drug cartels and prosecute criminal undocumented workers.

“We will deploy a multifaceted approach.  We are going to interdict your drugs on the way into this country, your money on the way out, and investigate and prosecute your trafficking networks to the fullest extent of the law,” he said.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer apologized on Tuesday, after his comment that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” during World War II. His comments were part of his efforts to insult the Russian alliance with the brutal Syrian regime and its use of chemical weapons on civilians.

The comment caused massive outrage immediately and after numerous attempts to give his words a different context, Spicer apologized in an interview on CNN.

“I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. Frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which there is no comparison,” Spicer said. “And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”

Spicer said that he knew Hitler had used gas chambers during the holocaust and clarified that he should “stayed focused” on Syria and Assad’s brutality. He also asked people to forgive him for his “mistake.”

“My goal now and then is to stay focused on Assad and I should have,” he said. “I realized that I had made a mistake and I didn’t want to be a distraction to the President’s agenda.”

Hitler and the Nazis used gas chambers to massacre millions of Jews, even though he did not use any chemical weapons on the battlefield.

“You had someone who was despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said during the briefing. “So you have to, if you are Russia, ask yourself is this a country and a regime that you want to align yourself with.”

While audible gasps could be heard in the briefing room as soon as Spicer made the comment, it also instantly spread on several social forums online.

Later in the briefing, when asked about his comments on Hitler and his use of chemical weapons, Spicer remarked: “I think when you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”

Reporters mentioned the Holocaust as an example of Hitler’s chemical weapons use, to which Spicer replied:

“He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns and dropped them down to innocent in the middle of towns,” he added, defending his statement. “I appreciate the clarification that was not the intent.”

After the briefing, Spicer, once again tried to clarify, “in no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable,” he said.

However, people were quick to call for Spicer’s resignation. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called for Spicer’s dismissal.

“While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust,” she said in a statement. “Sean Spicer must be fired, and the President must immediately disavow his spokesman’s statements.”

Someone forgot the "Don't" in this sign.

After a contentious debate, the California Senate passed Senate Bill 54, on Monday. The bill, being called “sanctuary state” bill, will prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies from investigating, detaining, reporting or arresting individuals for immigration enforcement.

While Republicans warned that the bill would lead to criminals being let go – cautioning that the move would displease President Trump – Democrats say that Californians had to take a stand to protect “hardworking” immigrants that have become an integral part of the nation’s cultural and economic pillars.

The Senate voted 27 to 12 along party lines to pass the bill, which will, before moving to the governor’s desk, be considered by the state Assembly. State Senator Kevin de Leon, the bill’s author, said that California “cannot be intimidated” by pressure from President Trump to deny sanctuary states federal funds and grants. “This is about making our communities safer, not less safe … We don’t grovel and put our hand out so we can get a little money and buy a police car,” he said. “Our role and responsibility is to protect all individuals.”

As part of the ongoing crackdown by the Trump administration, the Department of Justice will no longer give any grants to on disobliging local governments of sanctuary jurisdictions.

“We don’t have to collaborate and use our local tax dollars to enforce federal immigration laws,” Leon said in an interview. “If they want to go after the bad guys, the violent felons and drug dealers, we are more than happy to continue to work with them. But if they want to split families up and deport the nanny, that’s not what America’s about and that’s not what California is about.”

Republicans, however, argued on Monday, that the bill means the state is overstepping its limits as the implementation of immigration policy is the domain of the federal government. The Republicans also went on to say that the move to make California a sanctuary state would make it a “magnet” for dangerous criminals.

Deportation of undocumented immigrants was one of Trump’s major campaign promises. After taking charge of the Oval Office in January, Trump has issued orders for immigration laws to be enforced with more aggression. Before taking office, Trump had also promised to create a special “deportation force” tasked to carry out such work.

Conway

Trump met with the leaders of historically black colleges in the White House in an attempt to bring this country together, but that isn’t what the #NotMyPresident crew focused on.

While Trump worked in the oval office, welcoming the presidents of the nation’s 100-plus black colleges and universities, Trump aide Kellyanne Conway made herself comfortable on one of the couches.

Liberals ignored Trump’s guests and hard work, but focused on the “alternative etiquette” displayed by Kellyanne Conway.

All of this for putting her feet on the couch.

To be completely honest, sitting on the couch in the Oval Office with your shoes on is a little disrespectful, but nobody deserves the attacks that Conway is receiving online.

Some people are coming to the defense of Conway and pointing out the liberal hypocrisy.

It is sad that the Conway’s feet on the couch is getting more attention than Trump inviting the presidents from 100 historically black colleges and universities to the White House to find solutions and common ground.

Disagreeing in politics is part of the job, but what Maxine Waters said on MSNBC is beyond appalling.

Rep. Maxine Waters, a Democrat from California has not hidden her dislike for the president, but in an interview on MSNBC she took it too far and resorted to name calling in the worse way.

See the exchange below.

Maxine Waters was very harsh towards Donald Trump after he won the election. Waters said, “I don’t believe anything that Donald Trump says.”

This is the same woman that said the “FBI Director has no credibility”, after comments on Hillary’s email investigation.

Waters, like many Democrats try to frame Trump as a friend of Putin and an enemy of the American people. When in reality, members of Congress that refuse to work with elected officials and verbally chastise opponents are the real threat to our democracy.

Some liberals just can’t get past the fact that Donald Trump won, so they have created a fake universe where Hillary is president. Want to visit?

A fake news website has sprung up that pretends that Hillary is president and not Trump.

The site is a total fabrication, but publish articles that make the progressive left feel all warm inside.

Articles with headlines like, “Kellyanne Conway Dating Brock Turner” and “Mike Pence’s Latest Hobby: Gardening With Grindr Matches”. (Grindr is a dating website for those that don’t know.)

The articles take jabs at famous Republicans while create a safe space for liberals that are still in denial from Trump’s victory.

At the top of the home page it says, “President Hillary Rodham Clinton, News From The Real America, Where The Majority Rules.”

If you try to contact the site owners, there is a simple contact form, but no staff is identified.

Shortly after the election, Hillary spoke at the capital building about fake news.

Even though she called on government to end fake news, there is no report of Hillary trying to take down the HillaryBeatTrump website.

The students from the University Wisconsin-Madison want black students to be offered free tuition and housing, but everyone else has to pay.

A student organization submitted a resolution to allow black people the opportunity for a free education since the laws of the past-restricted black education during slavery.

Tyriek Mack, the author of the resolution and a representative of the Associated Students of Madison school organization said, according to AP, that the aim is to improve diversity.

“The university’s rhetoric suggests that it is committed to diversity and inclusion, so this legislation compels the university to move towards action – which is imperative. If no one challenges the university’s empty promises, then the racial composition will remain stagnant.”

The resolution the ASM presented to the university wants all black students to receive free access and for inmates. The cost comes to about $20,000 a year.

Although the idea is presented seriously, there was no serious plan attached on how to pay for the program.

Just fifty black students would cost the university a million dollars, but that isn’t the case. In the school of roughly 43,000 students, 5% are black already. Roughly 2,150 students would stop paying for their education. The cost to the university would be $43,000,000 a year.

University of Wisconsin-Madison is the same school that hit the streets to protest our democratic and fair election.

It is very unlikely the school will adopt the proposed resolution, primarily due to the financial restraints.

Venezuela decides to shut down the broadcasting of CNN in Spanish over a story the government claims isn’t real.

CNN in Spanish ran a story that alleged Venezuelan government officials sold passports to a terrorist group from the Middle East. The report used the testimony of a whistleblower as the basis of the story.

In a news release the National Telecommunications Commission said the story “threatened the peace and democratic stability” of Venezuela.

The Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez framed CNN as being part of a conspiracy to remove President Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro said that CNN is an “instrument of war in the hand of real mafias.”

To further escalate the problems between the US and Venezuela, Trump met with the wife of the imprisoned former leader of Venezuela.

Trump is calling for the immediate release of Leopoldo Lopez who directly opposes the socialist leader Maduro.

CNN is not backing down, and they are standing by their report. In a statement they said, “at CNN en Espanol we believe in the vital role that freedom of press plays in a healthy democracy.”

The former Penn State assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky was convicted of molesting several young boys, and now his son is convicted of similar crimes.

Jeff Sandusky was charged Monday with asking minors to send nude photos and perform sexual acts. Sandusky works at the State Correctional Institution in Rockview, Pennsylvania but has been suspended.

According to documents released by the court, there are two victims that Sandusky conversed with daily.
When Sandusky asked for nude photos from one of the victims and was refused, he urged the young child to delete all the text message and to meet. The young boy didn’t want to take it any further.

“No we don’t need to talk and we aren’t going to. You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try to justify it. You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do. You know who does that? Rapists and abusers… I don’t know how many times I need to tell you no and to stop before you get it.”


Luckily the victim didn’t delete his text messages and Jeff Sandusky has been charged with 12 felonies and two misdemeanors.

Ironically, Jeff Sandusky stood by his father Jerry during the trial that convicted the former Penn State assistant football coach for molesting several young boys.

Jeff was quoted in a Bleacher Report article in 2015 saying, “My dad is innocent. I can guarantee you that. He’s innocent.”

Over 175,000 residents in California that live below the Oroville Dam are being evacuated after officials declare that the massive dam is going to fail.

Massive amounts of rain and melted snow have filled the lake and the world’s tallest dam can’t take much more. The water is spilling over the emergency spillways and officials are frantic trying to keep them from failing completely and flooding the lower lying areas. For the first time in the history of the reservoir, it has exceeded capacity so early in the year. After the big snow melt in the spring is when it generally fills, but being full now means that this disaster is just developing.

The worse is yet to come. There are cracks forming in the spillways and holes in the dam are getting bigger. There are plans to use helicopters to drop large rocks and sandbags to try and fill the holes and keep the dam in place. The Sacramento Bee is reporting that the spillway is currently releasing twice the amount of water than is coming in and flooding will recede slightly through Tuesday.

Watch live updates on YouTube.

Right now, over 175,000 people have been evacuated, and hundreds of people are trying to work on fixing the damaged Oroville dam. The emergency spillway has been damaged and many officials are worried that it could have a “substantial” failure, which would be devastating to areas below the dam.

Things are bad in Oroville today, but they are about to get a lot worse. The weather coming into the area starting Wednesday will bring many more inches of rain to the surrounding areas and will make this problem a lot worse.

Rain is expected in the surrounding areas from Wednesday though next Monday, and a catastrophic disaster seems imminent according to the Department of Water Resources.

Many people are fleeing south to Sacramento as hotels are filling up quick with no end in site. If the dam’s emergency spillway holds up through the storms, then residents could return early next week.

If there is a major failure like many are expecting, then many of the fleeing residents may not have a home to come back to.
