Melania Responds To Ivana Saying She Is The REAL First Lady

I told you about how Ivana (Trump’s first wife, and Eric, Donald Jr., and Ivanka’s mom) went on Good Morning America to push her new book.

During the interview she said she was sort of kind of the “real” first lady, and it was awkward.

Anywhoooooo, Melania responded, and it’s right on target.


President Trump’s Immigration Policies Put American Jobs and Safety First

WASHINGTON, DC: The White House released an outline of President Trump’s immigration principles and priorities. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in support of the President’s agenda:

“Our nation's immigration system is broken and hurting American workers. The immigration agenda proposed by President Trump exemplifies his commitment to securing our borders, improving oversight of who is entering our country, keeping the American people safe, and increasing employment opportunities for Americans. It is imperative that Congress works with the Trump Administration to secure our southern border, penalize unlawful sanctuary cities, and prevent foreign nationals from overstaying their visas, which is the leading cause of illegal immigration in the United States.”

70-year-old woman punched twice in face in New York supermarket, cops say

Cops are looking for two heartless attackers who allegedly socked an elderly woman in the face at a Bronx supermarket because of a misunderstanding on the check-out line, police said on Sunday.

The 70-year-old victim was on line at the Key Food store on Jerome Avenue near West Gun Hill Road in Norwood around 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 28 when she realized she forgot something and told the cashier she needed to quickly grab it.

The woman encouraged the cashier to take other customers in the meantime.

Two men approached the check-out counter just as the woman returned, passed the duo and put the new item down on the conveyor belt, cops said.

The men, assuming that the woman was trying to cut the line, started arguing with the victim before each of them punched her once in the face.

EPA moves to repeal Obama’s Clean Power Plan coal regs

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced Monday that the Trump administration is moving to scrap the Clean Power Plan, the Obama administration's signature regulatory program to curb emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Pruitt made the announcement at an event in Hazard, Ky., casting the previous policy as unfair.

“That rule really was about picking winners and losers,” Pruitt said. “The past administration was unapologetic, they were using every bit of power, authority to use the EPA to pick winners and losers on how we pick electricity in this country. That is wrong.”


500th Person Shot to Death in Chicago This Year

A man shot dead early Friday evening was the 500th person to be killed in city gun violence since the start of the year on a weekend that has left three others wounded in shootings across Chicago.

The city reached 500 shooting homicides about a week later than it did last year, on Sept. 29, 2016, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. At this point last year, there had been 511 people shot to death.


Nanny Deep State: Bob Corker Reveals Establishment Effort to Tame Donald Trump’s Agenda

Veteran Republican establishment figure Senator Bob Corker confirmed to the New York Times that the Republican establishment is focused on corralling President Donald Trump and his agenda.

In an interview with reporter Jonathan Martin, Corker said that most Republican senators realized that Trump was a threat to the general world order.

“[They] understand the volatility that we’re dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road,” he said.

After the mild-mannered Senator came unglued on Twitter on Monday, he told the New York Times he was trying to send a message to “the good guys” — Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly.

“As long as there are people like that around him who are able to talk him down when he gets spun up, you know, calm him down and continue to work with him before a decision gets made, I think we’ll be fine,” he said.


California Leads Push to Lower Drug Prices

The state passed the nation's most comprehensive law to make drug prices more transparent on Monday. It has also inspired other states to take on the pharmaceutical companies in November.

When California does something, other states pay attention. Not just because it's the most populous state, but also because it's one of the most progressive and has enviably dug itself out of a $26 billion budget hole.

The issue of drug prices doesn't appear to be any different.

On Monday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed what many say is the nation's most comprehensive law to make drug prices more transparent. It will likely result in similar legislation in other states. And a 2016 California ballot initiative on drug pricing is being replicated on Ohio ballots this coming November.


New Jersey Sues Opioid Maker That Just Settled With Massachusetts

New Jersey on Thursday accused Insys Therapeutics Inc of engaging in a fraudulent scheme to boost sales of a fentanyl-based cancer pain drug, as Massachusetts announced a $500,000 settlement with the drugmaker to resolve similar allegations.

The lawsuit by New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino accused Insys of illegally directing its sales force to push prescriptions of Subsys for a broader range of patients than the opioid drug was approved for, and at higher doses.

The lawsuit, filed in Middlesex County Superior Court, alleged Insys also paid kickbacks, including sham speaker fees to medical practitioners to prescribe Subsys and defrauded insurers into paying for it.

California Hepatitis A Outbreak on Verge of Statewide Epidemic

The California hepatitis A outbreak is on the verge of reaching statewide epidemic status, as cases have spread through homeless tent cities from San Diego north to Sacramento.

California health officials have reported that at least 569 people have been infected with the hepatitis A liver disease and 17 have died since a San Diego County outbreak was first identified in November. Cases have migrated north to homeless populations in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Sacramento over the last 11 months.

Although local and state authorities have tried to underplay the risks and severity of the outbreak, the most recent annual totals for cases of hepatitis A in the United States was1,390 in 2015, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). California only reported 179 cases during the same year.

The highly-contagious hepatitis A outbreak may have taken root because of the City of San Diego’s efforts in the run-up to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game held at Petco Park in July 2016 to push the homeless, and the rampant drug and prostitution trade among them, out of the downtown tourist venues. Those effort included locking public bathrooms and essentially relocating the homeless to the congested tent city encampments that stretch for blocks east of downtown near freeway onramps.


Sunday NFL slips again as NFL Ratings Continue to Crater

There’s no real nice way of saying this, but people just don’t seem to care about watching the NFL anymore. On a day that saw a Vice President leave his seat in protest, the ratings for Sunday Night Football once again fell below the number for the previous week.

NBC’s Sunday Night Football earned 10.6/18 in metered market results, that fall constitutes a 3% drop from last week’s numbers. That’s especially bad considering that last week featured a good-but-not-great Seahawks team, and an Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts team, that seemed to be missing 38 starters.

By comparison, last Sunday night’s match-up between an undefeated Chiefs team, and an exciting Texans team playing in a large market, should have done significantly better than the Seahawks-Colts. Such a dynamic might suggest an even more scary trend than the NFL wants to admit.


49ers Eric Reid on VP Pence Walking Out of Colts Game: 'This Looks Like a PR Stunt to me...This Is What Systematic Oppression Looks Like'

As the saying goes, “It takes one to know one.” Such a saying might have particular application to 49ers safety Eric Reid, one of Colin Kaepernick’s original anthem-protesting buddies.

On Sunday, Vice President Pence walked out of the Colts-49ers game, after nearly two dozen 49ers players protested during the playing of the national anthem.

Reid, a member of the 49ers, and, one of the first players to join Colin Kaepernick in his protest, had some harsh words for the VP after the game:

Seven-day 'Pioppi diet' plan that helps people reach 100

From starting each day with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to eating eggs for breakfast, this seven-day Pioppi diet plan will extend your life by 10 years.

Pioppi, in southern Italy, has been dubbed the 'world's healthiest village', with its residents frequently living 10 years longer than elsewhere to 100 years old.

Despite bacon and chocolate being a staple of their diet, its inhabitants' love of vegetables, oily fish and nuts is thought to prevent them from developing heart disease or type 2 diabetes.

To adapt the diet of Pioppi, which UNESCO has protected as the home of the Mediterranean diet, into that which suits the average western urban-dweller, cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra and former athlete Donal O’Neill have created the below seven-day meal plan.


Las Vegas shooter may have had undiagnosed mental illness

Almost one week on from the Las Vegas shootings, investigators are now coming around to the idea that killer Stephen Paddock may have have been mentally ill, insiders have revealed.

On Wednesday FBI insiders said investigators believed Paddock may have been in 'mental or physical anguish' based on information given by his girlfriend.

But they didn't believe that his mental situation had deteriorated to the point of planning and executing mass murder.

Now, however, police insiders say that some investigators increasingly believe he was in the grip of a severe mental illness - and that it had been building for at least a year,ABC News reported.


Americans Face a Rising Risk of Dying Alone

Loneliness kills. Life without friends and family is not just dreary but difficult, especially as we get older.

Strong social relationships boost a person’s chances of staying alive by 50 percent, according to a comprehensive 2010 review of 148 studies that followed 309,000 people for an average of 7.5 years. That’s about the same improvement to mortality as the one that comes from quitting smoking.

It’s hard to say whether Americans are lonelier now than in the past. But they’re certainly more independent than ever. Almost half of U.S. adults are now single. Americans are waiting longer to get married, they’re having smaller families, and about half of all marriages still end in divorce.

EPA Chief Calls for Ending Wind Tax Credits to Help Coal Survive

Tax incentives for the wind industry should be eliminated, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt said Monday.

“I would do away with these incentives that we give to the wind industry,” Pruitt said, responding to a question about the effectiveness of renewable energy at an event held at the Kentucky Farm Bureau on Monday. “I’d let them stand on their own and compete against coal and natural gas and other sources."

In a video of the appearance on the farm bureau’s Facebook page, Pruitt said those energy sources should compete in the market "as opposed to being propped up by tax incentives and other types of credits that occur, both in the federal level and state level.”


Baltimore psychologist heads effort to 'warn' about Trump's mental health

Put psychologist John Gartner on a couch and ask him about his childhood and one of the first stories he will recall is about his mom, Diana, and a touchstone moment in the fight for women’s rights.

In 1969, Diana Gartner and other leaders of the relatively new National Organization for Women made a reservation at the Oak Room Bar in New York under the name "Dr. Gartner." The showdown that followed when the women arrived during the establishment’s male-only hours would lead to an early victory for feminism: The storied bar ultimately changed its gender policy.

John Gartner was 10 years old when the incident made headlines.

"It does run in our family to be mavericks,” he said. “Or rebels with a cause."

The Renewed Call for Immigration Enforcement

President Donald Trump sent his 70-point immigration enforcement proposal to Congress Sunday evening. If there were any fears that Trump was caving in to Democrat demands on a DACA deal — and there were — this immigration plan will quickly dispel them. Trump’s enforcement plan is arguably the toughest ever offered by any administration. The fundamental theme running throughout the plan is a renewed focus on the primary problem — closing illegal immigration loopholes.

The plan calls for Congress to comprehensively rewrite immigration laws in order to stiffen security enforcement on both the border and interior (remember, as much as 40% of illegals are visa overstays). The plan also calls for changes to laws to cut the so-called migration chain, as well as funding for building the border wall and the hiring of more deportation agents. In brief, Trump’s proposal is a three-part plan that highlights border security, interior enforcement and merit-based immigration.

A senior White House official stated, “Anything that is done addressing the status of DACA recipients needs to include these three reforms and solve these three problems. If you don’t solve these problems, then you’re not going to have a secure border, you’re not going to have a lawful immigration system and you’re not going to be able to protect American workers.”

Soros, NFL players union lock arms against Trump

Follow the money to find the truth, and in this case, it leads squarely to the doorstep of George Soros and other radical far-left advocacy groups.

And as it turns out, the Colin Kaepernick-inspired national anthem protests may not have been such an organic, grassroots uprising after all.

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) doesn’t appear to be on the same political page as many of its fans, so its no wonder they would rather keep the lid on the causes it supports.

That lid was popped open on Friday by 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog organization for corporate activism.

The National Football League Players Association has recently financially supported a veritable “who’s who” list of far-left organizations, from Planned Parenthood to organizations protesting the deportation of illegal immigrants, among many others.

One such recipient is none other than the Open Society Foundation, chaired by billionaire George Soros.

The NFLPA has been donating to several far-left and anti-trump causes dating back to at least 2013.


Obama Study Concluded Firearms Used for Self-Defense ‘Important Crime Deterrent

“Self-defense can be an important crime deterrent,” concluded a study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) mandated via executive order by President Barack Obama. The findings also question the effectiveness of gun-control measures.

The $10 million study was commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed in January of 2013.

The study’s findings include:

Gun-use is the safest of studied “self-protective strategies,”
Suicide accounts for most firearm deaths,
Felons who use guns very seldom obtain their guns by stealing them, and
There is no evidence that gun restrictions reduce gun violence.

“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies,” the CDC study, entitled “Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence,” states.

Jail time for using wrong gender pronoun

California health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” decline to use a senior transgender patient's “preferred name or pronouns” could face punishments ranging from a fine to jail time under a newly signed law.

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the legislation last week.

The sponsor, Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener, has argued adamantly that nobody is going to be criminally prosecuted for using the wrong pronoun.

“It’s just more scare tactics by people who oppose all LGBT civil rights and protections,” he said in a statement last month.

But the language seemingly allows for the possibility, however remote.

The bill itself is aimed at protecting transgender and other LGBT individuals in hospitals, retirement homes and assisted living facilities. The bill would ensure those facilities accommodate transgender people and their needs, including letting them decide which gender-specific bathroom they prefer to use.

Christian women gather on the Mall and criticize feminism

One after another, the women who gathered for a prayer rally on the Mall on Monday said that when they decided to travel to Washington for this event, they had in mind another assembly of women in the same place: the Women’s March on the day following the presidential inauguration, which drew massive crowds of protesters in “pussy hats.”

Those women marchers didn’t stand for them, the Christian women said on Monday.

“For years, the feminists lied to us,” Christian author Lisa Bevere shouted from the stage. “They said for us to be powerful as women, we needed to act like men.” The women gathered on the Mall raised their hands in praise.

Twitter drops GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn's ad for line about Planned Parenthood

A Senate campaign ad by Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn was blocked on Twitter Monday because of a statement she made in the spot about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.

Blackburn, a Tennessee representative running to fill the retiring Sen. Bob Corker’s seat, said in the ad that she “stopped the sale of baby parts.”

Twitter told Blackburn's campaign in an email obtained by Fox News that the line was “deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”

The line, in full, states: “I’m 100% pro-life. I fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby body parts — thank god.”

The social media platform said it would run Blackburn’s ad if the statement in question were omitted.

ICE Director On CA Becoming Sanctuary State: “No Choice but to Conduct At-Large Arrests”

This past Thursday, California’s Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, officially signed what is being called the “Sanctuary State Law.” The law limits the ability of California law enforcement officers to interact with Federal immigration authorities in terms of enforcing immigration law. Brown defended the legislation, saying, “These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.”

California has officially made it clear that federal immigration officers are not welcome in the state, not in courtrooms, or any state government location. Thomas Homan, acting ICE Director, was at an immigration forum in Sacramento, in March, where he was booed and heckled by protesters. His response was to make clear that, “We don’t conduct neighborhood sweeps. We don’t do it. If you think ICE officers don’t have a heart, you don’t get it.”


Pres. Trump To Sign Executive Order Expanding U.S. Health Care Options

President Trump plans to expand health insurance options for Americans who purchase their coverage or receive it through work.

The White House is finalizing the executive order aimed at pooling together individuals, and allowing them to purchase insurance outside state lines.

The order is expected to lower premiums and loosen regulations for those purchasing their own policies.

This comes after Congress has seen multiple failures to pass health care reform legislation in recent months.

The president is likely to sign the order on Thursday.

It remains unclear whether the changes will process in enough time before consumers are faced with higher premiums in 2018.

Dolphins coach resigns after snorting video surfaces

WARNING: This video includes disturbing content

Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster has resigned, less than 12 hours after a video of him snorting a white powder surfaced online.

Demonstrators Rally Against NFL National Anthem Protest In Detroit

Demonstrators take to the streets in Detroit, Michigan to rally against NFL player’s protesting during the national anthem.

A group gathered outside Ford Field on Sunday demanding both players and fans stand proudly.

The demonstrators urged players to consider all those who have been killed while fighting for our country before displaying acts of disrespect.

“Free to place it over their heart if they want to and face the flag,” said protest organizer, Brian Pannebecker. “It only takes two minutes to play the national anthem and that’s all we’re asking for out of respect for the veterans, law enforcement officers who have given their lives for this country.”

All Detroit Lions players stood during the national anthem ahead of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.


Maryland State Police Investigate Stabbing In Queen Anne’s County

(QUEENSTOWN, Md.) — Maryland State Police are investigating a stabbing that was reported Monday in Queen Anne’s County.

Shortly after 5 p.m., the Centreville Barrack received a 911 emergency call regarding a person who had been stabbed multiple times at a residence in the 100 block of Taylors Road in Queenstown. Investigators then met with the victim, who had been transported to University of Maryland Shore Emergency Center at Queenstown.

The victim, who was being discharged from the hospital, told investigators a male arrived at the residence and demanded someone come out to meet him. The victim went outside and confronted the person, who was described as African-American with shoulder-length dreadlocks.

According to investigators, a physical altercation ensued, at which time the victim was hit several times in the head and mouth and was bit in his upper right arm. The victim said the subject displayed what appeared to be a small pocket knife and began stabbing him on the left side of his upper body.

The victim said that once the fight stopped, the subject sped off in what was described as a black or dark blue two-door vehicle that turned left at the stop sign. Although there were several people in the residence, none of them could provide any assistance with identifying the unknown subject.

Investigators have yet to determine an identification for the person responsible for the stabbing. The investigation will continue.

Mayor On Boardwalk Property: ‘No action will be taken by the town of Ocean City until a final decision is made by the Court of Special Appeal’

OCEAN CITY — While what will likely be a lengthy appeal, it will remain business as usual at an iconic building on the east side of the Boardwalk currently home to a Dumser’s Dairyland ice cream parlor at least until the legal battle over its ownership runs its course.

Ownership of the historic building was called into question last year after a 50-year agreement expired between the town of Ocean City and the heirs of the original owner, Nathan Rapoport, who built the first structure on the site in 1905. After a trial last April, a Worcester County Circuit Court judge issued an opinion essentially ruling in favor of the town of Ocean City. As a result, the Rapoport heirs, now Nathans Associates, were enjoined from any of use of the property after October 31 and would be required to remove or demolish the building before the end of this year.

Nathans Associates have since appealed the Worcester County Circuit Court ruling and that appeal is now making its way through what will likely be a lengthy legal process. In the interim, Nathans Associates late last month filed a motion to stay the enforcement of the Circuit Court’s ruling regarding the deadlines for vacating the premises and ultimately removing or demolishing the structure. That motion was denied, however, Mayor Rick Meehan on Friday issued a statement assuring Nathans Associates, and the public which has become so emotionally attached to the building, that the town will not enforce any of the deadlines imposed by the Circuit Court Judge until the appeals process runs its course.

“We understand there has been a lot of public discussion about the fate of the property that sits on South Atlantic Avenue and is currently home to one of Dumser’s Dairyland Boardwalk locations,” the statement reads. “Although this is a complicated legal matter, we would like to clarify our position on the current appeal.”

Posted on December 13, 1980 by Fred Reed

Harper’s, December, 1980

I begin to weary of the stories about veterans that are now in vogue with the newspapers, the stories that dissect the veteran’s psyche as if prying apart a laboratory frog — patronizing stories written by style-section reporters who know all there is to know about chocolate mousse, ladies’ fashions, and the wonderful desserts that can be made with simple jello. I weary of seeing veterans analyzed and diagnosed and explained by people who share nothing with veterans, by people who, one feels intuitively, would regard it as a harrowing experience to be alone in a backyard. Week after week the mousse authorities tell us what is wrong with the veteran. The veteran is badly in need of adjustment, they say — lacks balance, needs fine tuning to whatever it is in society that one should be attuned to. What we have here, all agree, with omniscience and veiled condescension, is a victim: The press loves a victim. The veteran has bad dreams, say the jello writers, is alienated, may be hostile, doesn’t socialize well — isn’t, to be frank, quite right in the head.

But perhaps it is the veteran’s head to be right or wrong in, and maybe it makes a difference what memories are in the head. For the jello writers the war was a moral fable on Channel Four, a struggle hinging on Nixon and Joan Baez and the inequities of this or that. I can’t be sure. The veterans seem to have missed the war by having been away in Vietnam at the time and do not understand the combat as it raged in the internecine cocktail parties of Georgetown.


Pennsylvania mayor attacked by her son at campaign office, police say

The son of a Pennsylvania mayor was charged with assault last week after he punched and stomped the politician, who says her son is battling an opioid addiction.

Police said the son of York Mayor Kim Bracey attacked her at her campaign office on Sept. 30, the York Daily Record reported.

The reports quoted police as saying Brandon Anderson, 30, of York, was charged with punching his mother in the face, knocking her to the ground, and then stomping on her back, head and face while she was down.

"Like thousands of families, our family is confronting the fact that my adult son is battling an opioid addiction," Bracey said. "No family is immune from this epidemic -- which is why we must do everything in our power to solve it."

She also asked for privacy.

Trump slams Corker, who calls White House 'adult day care center'

President Trump on Sunday ripped increasingly vocal critic Sen. Bob Corker, saying the Tennessee Republican gutlessly dropped his re-election bid after begging for the Trump endorsement he never received.

“Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him,” Trump said in a string of tweets. "I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement). He also wanted to be secretary of state, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ ... Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn't have the guts to run!”

Solar Cars Begin Race Across Australian Desert

SYDNEY (Reuters) – The World Solar Challenge began on Sunday with 42 solar cars crossing Australia’s tropical north to its southern shores, a grueling 3,000 km (1,864 mile) race through the outback.

The race from the northern city of Darwin to the southern city of Adelaide is expected to take a week for most cars, with speeds of 90-100 kmh (55-62 mph) powered only by the sun.

The fastest time was achieved by Japan’s Tokai University in 2009, completing the transcontinetal race in only 29 hours and 49 minutes.

Belgian team Punch Powertrain started first on Sunday after recording a trial time of 2:03.8 for 2.97 km (1.78 miles), hitting an average speed of 83.4 kmh (51.5mph).

But reigning 2015 champions Nuon from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands believes it has a good chance of retaining the prize

Rep. Scalise Speaks Out In Support Of Responsible Gun Owners

OAN Newsroom

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise weighs in on gun rights in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting in Las Vegas.

The Louisiana representative reaffirmed his support for Americans right to bear arms and said more restrictions are not the answer.

Scalise said the problem is not with law abiding Americans who have guns and opposed restricting the rights of responsible gun owners.

“If you’re going to have a firearm it’s important that you know how to use it and how to protect your family so that it doesn’t get into the wrong hands,” said Scalise. But it’s every day in America you see people use their firearms to protect them against a criminal.”

Scalise says mental illness is often to blame for mass shootings such as the one in Las Vegas, as well as the attack when he was critically injured earlier this year.


Top Executives Ditch Clinton’s Laureate Education Company

Top executives at a company with ties to former President Bill Clinton called Laureate Education are leaving the firm only months after they launched its IPO, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

The Baltimore-based company became an issue during the 2016 presidential election campaign when the public learned it paid Clinton nearly $18 million over a period of five years to serve as a consultant and “honorary chancellor.” The firm also faced accusations it operated as a “pay-to-play” company by donating between $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in government funds.



Interesting that the LA Times did this. Lou Dobbs reported this

(Donald Trump was right)

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are
Mexican nationals; they are here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are

Principal fired for trying to smuggle heroin into prison

A once-respected Brooklyn principal has lost a bid to keep her job after admitting she tried to smuggle heroin and other drugs into an upstate prison, The Post has learned.

Sadie Silver, a rising star at PS 28 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, was busted in July 2014 — but continued to collect her city salary, which was $138,000 last year, until March this year.

Silver and a boyfriend were arrested on charges of drug possession, bringing contraband into a prison, and endangering the welfare of a child. Silver brought her daughter to Coxsackie Correctional Facility.

She and her boyfriend were caught with bags of heroin and suboxone, authorities said. They allegedly tried to sneak the drugs to Silver’s son, who was doing time on weapons charges.
