Cop Accuser Implodes in Breitbart Interview, Admits to Making Unsupported Claims About Roy Moore

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Faye Gary, a former police officer with the Gadsden Police Department in Alabama, has been featured in the news in recent days making the unsubstantiated claim that she was told to protect young cheerleaders from Roy Moore at local ballgames.

Speaking in a Breitbart News interview on Wednesday, Gary falsely claimed that Moore “wanted to keep segregation here in the south.”

She then claimed that Moore “hates Jews. He hates blacks. He hates Muslims. He hates gays.”

When challenged for specifics, Gary conceded that “I don’t know exactly what he said about Jews, but he doesn’t like Muslims. I know he doesn’t like Muslims. It is my personal feeling that he doesn’t like blacks.”



Delivery Driver Robbed – Seaford

Seaford - The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a delivery man that occurred Friday evening.

The preliminary investigation has determined the incident occurred on Friday, December 1, 2017 at approximately 9:30 p.m., when a 20-year-old male delivery man, employed by Café Milano in Blades, returned to the business to report that he had been robbed. The driver attempted to deliver an order to an address in the 10000 block of Concord Road and found that the address given didn’t exist. When he phoned the number provided by the customer, he was given directions to drive down a long dirt road to the residence. When he approached to door, two subjects came from the rear of the house, one armed with an unknown type handgun. The subject with the gun demanded his money. The delivery man complied and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash. The second suspect began rummaging through the victim's car and removed his cell phone and the food order before the two suspect fled back around the rear of the house. The victim was not injured and returned to his place of business before contacting troopers.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 18-25 years of age, 6'00"-6'01" tall., wearing all black with a mask over his face (no further clothing or physical description). Armed with an unknown type handgun.

The second suspect was only described as a male wearing all black clothing with a mask over his face. Unknown if he was armed with any weapon.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact the Troop 4 Major Crimes Unit at 302-856-5850. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet

Mexican convicted of sexual assault was deported 20 times

A Mexican man who was deported from the US 20 times has been convicted of 10 counts including sexual assault in Oregon.

On Friday, Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, was sentenced to 35 years in prison in a Portland courtroom after pleading guilty to kidnapping, sexual assault, sodomy and several other counts, KOIN reported.

Martinez smiled throughout the trial, and as he left, he gave one grim parting shot to his two victims' relatives: 'See all you guys in Hell.'


Kate Steinle’s Brother: System’s ’Epic Failure’ Led to Sister’s Murder

The brother of Kate Steinle, who was shot on July 1, 2015, by a seven-time felon and five-times deported illegal alien, said the system’s “epic failure” led to Jose Garcia Zarate being released, on the streets, and with a loaded handgun.

Brad Steinle made the remark in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper just days before a San Francisco jury found Zarate not guilty of murdering Kate Steinle, a crime he admitted to committing in an interview with a local television station.

The published story included the family’s reaction to the not guilty verdict and the conviction of possession of a firearm.

“We’re just shocked — saddened and shocked … that’s about it,” Kate’s father, Jim Steinle, said. “There’s no other way you can coin it. Justice was rendered, but it was not served.”


Majority of Alabama Republicans Believe Allegations False

As the majority of Alabama Republicans believe that the allegations against Judge Roy Moore are untrue, he now takes a commanding lead over radical leftist Democrat Doug Jones per a new CBS News poll.

The poll found Moore with a six-point lead over Jones. Moore, at 49 percent, leads Jones — who’s stuck in the low 40s at 43 percent — while four percent said they would vote for someone else and four percent said they are undecided.

The CBS News/YouGov poll, conducted between Nov. 28 and Dec. 1, surveyed 1,037 Alabamians registered to vote in Alabama. It further segmented the poll results into some results among registered voters and others among likely voters. Among registered voters, the margin of error is 3.8 percent. Among likely voters, the margin of error is 4.8 percent. The results for the election, with Moore leading Jones, were broken down to likely voters.

Another part broken down to likely voters was polling specifically about the allegations about Moore. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a significant number of Alabamians do not believe the allegations against Moore one bit.

James Comey 'Emperor with No Clothes,' Says Former FBI Assistant Director After Gloating Bible Verse Post

The former assistant director of the FBI calls James Comey “the emperor with no clothes” after the bureau’s former director posted a not-so-cryptic message on social media appearing to gloat over the Michael Flynn plea agreement and announced cooperation with investigators.

“‘But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,’ Amos 5:24,” Comey posted Friday on Instagram below the picture of gently cascading water.

“Anyone with a brain knows what he meant,” James Kallstrom told Breitbart News. “He thinks he was unjustly brought down, and now justice is going to prevail and show him as some sort of a martyr. Nothing could be further from the truth.”


Lawmaker behind secret $84K sexual harassment settlement unmasked

Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) used taxpayer funds to end a dispute with his communications director in 2014.

Rep. Blake Farenthold used taxpayer money to settle a sexual harassment claim brought by his former spokesman — the only known sitting member of Congress to have used a little-known congressional account to pay an accuser, people familiar with the matter told POLITICO.

Lauren Greene, the Texas Republican’s former communications director, sued her boss in December 2014 over allegations of gender discrimination, sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.


ABC News 'corrects' bombshell Flynn report

ABC News on Friday evening corrected an explosive special report that aired in the morning saying that Donald Trump, as a candidate for president, had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with Russians.

During "World News Tonight," ABC News investigative reporter Brian Ross said the source who had provided the initial information for his story later told him that it was as president-elect, not as a candidate, that Trump asked Flynn to contact the Russians.

The initial report, based on ONE ANONYMOUS SOURCE, prompted a dramatic reaction in the financial markets, and the Dow fell more than 350 points.


Gay GOP group urges 'good Christians' to oppose Moore

A prominent Republican LGBT advocacy group is out with an ad opposing embattled Republican Roy Moore, calling on “good Christians” to reject him ahead of Alabama’s special Senate election.

The ad from Log Cabin Republicans features people praying at church and around a dinner table, saying that politicians are “attacking our values, our churches, our children.”

“It’s a time for choosing. We can’t stand on the sidelines anymore,” the ad’s narrator says. “It's time for good Christians to do what good Christians do. Reject Roy Moore.”

The Most Important Civil Rights Victory in Years

Going all the way back to 2009, it was obvious Obamacare would end up looking like a Rube Goldberg machine powered by totalitarianism. Who would have ever guessed, though, it was such a fiasco that the mandate would actually cost the government money — a delicious irony that would result in its undoing.

It works like this…

For the sin of being born, Obamacare mandates that every American purchase health insurance. If we do not purchase this totally unnecessary, godawful product (more on this below), we are required by law to pay a hefty tax to the federal government.

Somehow, and I do not really care how, this tax actually costs the government money, some $340 billion — with a “B” — every ten years.

Only Bill Ayers’ pal and his merry band of congressional nincompoops could crawl so far up their own backsides that they were able to find a tax that increases the deficit.

But thank heavens they did. Had they not, the Senate would not have repealed the mandate Friday night.

After the humiliation of failing to keep their defining promise to repeal Obamacare, the Senate turned to tax reform, which also looked sketchy due to deficit projections. But then the clouds parted and the stars aligned with the discovery that repealing the Obamacare mandate would save the government this $340 billion.

Amazon bosses try to raise morale by giving exhausted staff chocolates

Miserly Amazon bosses reacted to the Sunday Mirror’s investigation into its shocking working conditions – by giving out tiny chocolates.

Staff on gruelling 10-and-a-half-hour shifts were given one Celebration sweet in the first half of their day and another in the second half.

The bizarre gesture is revealed by former employee Neil Drinkwater – who quit after his partner read our exposé and realised for the first time what he had been enduring.

We told last week of exhausted warehouse staff falling asleep on their feet as they chased impossible targets.

And the five-week investigation led to a widespread backlash against the £7.3billion-a-year online giant.

He told us: “This week our managers started coming round with a box of ­Celebrations for the first part of the shift, and gave us a chocolate each.

“Then they did the same at the second part of the shift. Me and my colleagues all thought it was an insult.”

Their boss, American Jeff Bezos, 53, is the world’s richest man. Like Neil, he is a dad of four. Last year he made £2.2million an hour.

Chicago man stabbed 25 times, partially disemboweled by brother-in-law, official says

A Chicago man stabbed his brother-in-law at least 25 times on a city bus, partially disemboweling him in front of shocked riders, officials said Saturday.

Darnell Scott, 37, attacked his brother-in-law with a 2-inch pocket knife while the two were on the CTA bus on the city's South Side around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, The Chicago Tribune reported.

The attack took place after Scott got on the bus and walked past his 50-year-old brother-in-law without saying anything, Assistant State's Attorney Craig Taczy told a courtroom Saturday. When the brother-in-law approached Scott, the men got into a fight with Scott punching and stabbing the man.

While Taczy did not say what caused the fight, an arrest report obtained by The Tribune said the brother-in-law told police he was hit after he asked Scott if he had previously sent people to "jump him."

Scott and the victim do not have a "friendly relationship," and hadn't spoken for some time despite being related by marriage, according to Taczy.


Drudge Scorches Mueller Probe: 'What Is Punishment When FBI Lies To Us?'

FBI kept House Intel Committee in dark about demoted anti-Trump FBI agent

Matt Drudge, editor and founder of the Internet news powerhouse Drudge Report, put the special counsel probe on notice Saturday.

In a flurry of tweets, stark against an otherwise empty Twitter page (Drudge has a habit of deleting his prior tweets), the influential but reclusive conservative figure painted Robert Mueller and his Russia inquiry team as a farce.

“Mueller’s secretive grand jury made up of residence from DC, where 91% voted for Hillary…,” he began, referring to the grand jury Mueller put together to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Got $1 million to retire? Here’s how long it will last, by U.S. state

If your vision for retirement was basking in a tropical paradise, let’s hope your vision of tropical paradise resembles something more like Mississippi and less like Hawaii.

Either that, or let’s hope you were planning on a short retirement.

Data analysis site HowMuch analyzed how far $1 million goes in retirement in every U.S. state. And it turns out, you can stretch $1 million about twice as far in Mississippi as you can in Hawaii. HowMuch crunched the numbers based on theCost of Living Index for Q2 of 2017 as well as average annual expenditure of persons with 65 years and above.

$1 million would allow the average retired person in Mississippi to live for 25 years and 6 months. $1 million only gets you 13 years and 1 month of retirement in Hawaii.


'Let Them Fight, It Will Make It Easier to Declare An Unlawful Assembly': Charlottesville Police Chief Ordered Stand Down

According to a bombshell new 220-page report, Charlottesville police chief Al Thomas ordered police to stand down at the “Unite the Right” rally in August because he said it would “make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly.”

From VICE:

“Let them fight.” That directive from the police chief as the violence started to unfold was only part of the massive failure of the response to the “Unite the Right rally” in Charlottesville, according to a searing 220-page report by an independent review team released Friday.

[…]Virginia State Police were told that their job was to protect Emancipation Park, where the statue of Robert E. Lee was located. Charlottesville officers were told that they were only to “intervene in serious violence, violence where someone would be seriously hurt or killed,” Heaphy said.


Who is Peter Strzok?

And better yet, why should you care?

By Thornton Crowe

He's one of the men behind the curtain, pulling all the strings...

"Peter Strzok, as deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, was a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server to do government work as secretary of state, as well as the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election."

After the text message between Strzok and his gal pal, FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, demonstrate his Trump-hate and Pro-Clinton political stance, the world found out the politicization of the a bureau that's supposed to be apolitical.

This type of FBI employee is the Deep State, folks. You can't get deeper than this one. 

As of late, it was discovered through interviews with Catherine Herridge of Fox News, Strzok was responsible for a lot of the incredulous maneuvers to get his candidate of choice to continue her run for President. He was the one that insisted on the 'intent' factor which as most attorneys know, is next to impossible to definitively nail down. He was also the one who passed off the fake Trump dossier as a reason for FISA warrants to be issued for tapping the candidate, then President-Elect at Trump Towers. Reported today on Rush Limbaugh, it has been brought to light, he's the FBI person who actually paid for the dossier by former M6 agent Christopher Steele.

The following video will tell you who Peter Strzok is and why everything you've heard to this point about Russians and Trump is all fabrications of the Deep State to impeach our duly elected president on no premise whatsoever other than they don't want him to be the most powerful man in the free world.

If your enemies are speaking out on your behalf, you know something illegal is going on...

Another interesting reveal was today, Alan Derschowitz, a Democrat attorney who doesn't support President Trump nor likes his agenda came forward to point out the illegality of this impeachment farce going on with Mueller's camp.

The real deal is this, you can't charge or convict the President for obstruction. He's the chief guy at the Department of Justice, which falls under his executive branch.

Even though Strzok is still employed at the FBI, he's been demoted and removed from the Mueller case altogether.

Are you satisfied or do you think he should be permanently outed from the FBI?

All Prince George wants for Christmas is a police car

The future King of England may be harboring law enforcement aspirations.

Prince George, third in line to the throne, only wants one thing for Christmas this year – a toy police car. reported Friday the special holiday request was passed on to Santa Claus on Thursday by his father, Prince William, during a trip to Helsinki, Finland

The 35-year-old Duke of Cambridge and son of the late Princess Diana talked to Santa at a Christmas market where he presented a handwritten note from the 4-year-old.

“He hasn’t written down my requests, so I think one request is probably OK,” said Prince William, adding George “has been a nice boy” this year.

Breaking News: President Trump endorsed Roy Moore in a call to him

President Trump on Monday offered a strong endorsement of Roy S. Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama embroiled in accusations that he had inappropriate sexual relations with underage girls.

While many Republicans called for Mr. Moore to drop out of the race after several women came out with their stories, Mr. Trump has defended him, saying that Mr. Moore denied the accounts and deserved to be heard.

North Korean missile broke up on re-entry, US official says

North Korea's latest intercontinental ballistic missile did not survive re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere after it was tested this week, a U.S. official told Fox News Saturday.

The official added that U.S. allies are searching for the remnants of the warhead after it splashed down close to the Japanese coast Wednesday.

The news suggests that even if North Korea's latest missile, dubbed the Kwasong-15, could not make impact on U.S. soil even if it has the range to reach American shores. South Korea's Defense Ministry said Friday that the two-stage liquid-fuel missile potentially capable of striking targets as far away as 8,100 miles, which would put Washington within reach.


Mueller's Top FBI Agent Probing Clinton Emails, Russian-Collusion "Removed" After Anti-Trump Texts Found

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's top FBI investigator into 'Russian meddling' and Clinton emails has been removed from the probereportedly due to the discovery of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with a colleague (whom he happened to be having an extra-marital affair with).

FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, considered "one of the most experienced and trusted FBI counterintel investigators" according to the NYT, and who was tapped by Mueller to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year's presidential election, after helping lead the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, has left Mueller's team.

As ABC reported in August, when Strzok's departure was first noticed, this was the first known hitch in a secretive probe that, by all public accounts, is charging full steam ahead. ABC reported that it was unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller's team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staffers. Strzok, who had spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, was moved the FBI's human resources division. The move prompted many questions about why one of the FBI's top investigators was being reassigned.


Washington Post Poll of Alabama Senate Race Oversamples Democrats

A new Washington Post poll of likely voters in the Alabama U.S. Senate race that shows liberal Democrat Doug Jones with a three-point lead over conservative Republican Roy Moore, 50 percent to 47 percent, was based on a methodology that includes an oversampling of Democrat voters.

The sample of 739 likely voters upon which the poll was based included 38 percent who self-identified as Republicans, 31 percent who identified as Democrats, and 27 percent who identified as independents.

This sample, which includes only seven percent more Republicans than Democrats (R +7), is not reflective of how Alabamians have voted in recent elections.


This is Government Health Care - discounted medicines for hospitals, but no discounts for you. Enough!

It is no secret that federal health programs are growing at an unwieldy and ultimately cataclysmic rate. ObamaCare, Medicaid expansion, growing entitlements and new mandates are all contributing to the unchecked expansion of government controlled health care and the increasing liability for taxpayers.

In simple terms, the solution is to institute policies that will allow free-market principles to foster an environment where the individual patient is empowered just as customers are in virtually every other market. Such a market would allow consumers to choose medical care and insurance based on value and cost, rather than allow market participants and providers to rig the system to reap windfall profits due to government patronage.

This consolidation of medical services at the expense of patients shockingly underscores what government intrusion ultimately means for health care – less access, fewer choices and increased costs for patients, and taxpayers.


National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry Expected on House Floor This Week

National reciprocity for concealed carry is expected to be introduced on the House Floor for a vote this week.

Breitbart News reported that the legislation received a markup from the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. That markup indicated committee members were confident national reciprocity had the momentum to reach the House Floor.

The legislation, Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, was introduced by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) on January 3, 2017. It treats concealed carry permits like driver’s licenses, making a permit from one state valid in the other 49. This saves the common man the hassle of navigating the cumbersome patchwork of concealed carry laws that exist in the U.S., making it easier for him to be armed to defend himself and his family should the need arise.

As national reciprocity moved toward markup, Rep. Hudson said this:

Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”... Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

Obama Campaigners Rush Over $1 Million in Secretive 'In-Kind' Donations to Shell 'Independent Expenditure' Group Backing Doug Jones

Two high level former Obama campaign officials orchestrated more than $1.1 million of “in-kind” contributions over a 17 day period in November to an independent expenditure committee with no apparent assets that supports the election of Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama U.S. Senate election, according to Federal Election Commission reports and publicly available documents.

Bully Pulpit Interactive, a Washington, D.C. based consulting firm founded by former Obama campaign official Andrew Bleeker, provided more than $800,000 in online advertising services to Highway 31, an independent expenditure committee based in Birmingham, Alabama, in the 17 days between November 6, when the Alabama group filed its statement of organization with the FEC, and November 22, the ending date for the firststatement of activities it filed with the FEC.

Waterfront Strategies, a Washington, D.C. based consulting firm that is a wholly owned subsidiary of GMMB Consulting, which was founded by former Obama campaign official Jim Margolis, has provided more than $309,000 in media buy services during that same 17 day period to Highway 31.


Feel the Difference: Obama-Putin compared with Trump-Putin

Breaking News: Yemen's ex-president has been killed, reports say. His death could escalate a Saudi-Iran proxy war that has already devastated the country.

Survey: 34 Percent of Students in Loan Default Never Made a Payment

More than one-in-three borrowers who have defaulted on their student loans did so without ever attempting to make a payment, according to a new report.

A record 11 percent of the 44 million former college students with
outstanding loan debt now sit in default—far beyond the 8.6 percent peak in mortgage defaults at the height of the housing crisis that caused the Great Recession—according to the Student Loan Report. Nearly half of all those in default, 48.6 percent, said in a survey that they never obtained a college degree, while 33.8 percent have not made a single payment on their debt.

The majority of those in default have more than one student loan
outstanding with 11.2 percent saying they have four or more debt
payments to make.

The majority of respondents said they entered default because of their inability to find a good-paying job (30.85 percent), lost their job
(22.62), or lived in communities with high living expense (28.52
percent). Just 39 percent of the defaulters said they had full-time jobs.

"The most common problems stem from either not working or getting laid off. Furthermore, a large group said their living expenses were too high, leading them to miss student loan payments. These all point to income problems—whether it's too low or non-existent," the report says.

Student loan debt is now largely backed by the federal government and carries unique terms compared to traditional credit card or mortgage loans. It cannot, for example, be discharged in bankruptcy courts.


Fitton: New documents reveal FBI's Clinton cover-up

In Washington, the ostensible story is rarely the real story. We know, for example, that former President Clinton engineered a meeting with President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport on June 27, 2016.

That’s the official story, replete with the charming and intentionally disarming detail that all they talked about was their grandchildren. It was just coincidental, don’t you know, that at the time the FBI was looking into Hillary Clinton’s use of a “personal” email server to send, receive and store classified information.

And it was also simply coincidental that just a few days later, the director of the FBI – who served under Attorney General Lynch – announced that he wouldn’t recommend a prosecution of Hillary Clinton.

Richard Nixon must be rolling over in his grave.

What we haven’t known, until now, is that a frantic scramble erupted in the halls of the FBI to cover up this meeting. In fact, the FBI turned its sharp light not on the scandalous meeting between the attorney general and Bill Clinton – but rather on one of the whistleblowers who got the word out.

The organization I head, Judicial Watch, asked the FBI on July 7, 2016, for any records that might pertain to the infamous tarmac meeting. We had to sue after we were ignored by the agency.

Then the FBI told us flat-out that it couldn’t find any records. And we now know that was flat-out untrue..

Raul Grijalva's secret deal exposes second 'hush fund' on Capitol Hill

Rep. Raul M. Grijalva quietly arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for one of his top staffers who threatened a lawsuit claiming the Arizona Democrat was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment, revealing yet another way that lawmakers can use taxpayer dollars to hide their misbehavior on Capitol Hill.

While the Office of Compliance has been the focus of outrage on Capitol Hill for hush-money payouts in sexual harassment cases, the Grijalva payout points to another office that lawmakers can use to sweep accusations under the rug with taxpayer-funded settlements negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, which acts as the attorney for all House offices.

The employment counsel negotiated a deal for taxpayers to give $48,395 — five additional months’ salary — to the female aide, who left her job after three months. She didn’t pursue the hostile workplace complaint further.

The arrangement appears to run contrary to House rules that constrain severance packages, and it caught the eye of watchdogs who were already demanding answers about payouts in the wake of harassment complaints.

The New "SLAP Act" could hit Sanctuaries in a Big Way!

Todd Rokita (R-IN)
By Thornton Crowe

Reported this morning, there is a new bill approaching completion, Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act, is being created to ensure local cooperation between ICE and law enforcement. This bill goes well beyond merely ceasing grants to the area but puts their upper levels in leadership in criminal prosecutorial peril.

On Fox News this morning, this Stopping Lawless Action of Politicians (SLAP) Act goes as follows:

"His (Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita) “Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act” would hold state and local lawmakers criminally responsible for refusing to comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts. The Republican’s bill would subject violators to a $1 million fine and up to five years in prison if they are convicted."

Yes, it would make a law that gives the Department of Justice to pursue criminal indictments and prosecutions against Politicians, State Delegates & Senators, Mayors, Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, et. al. who engage in harboring illegal aliens by not adhering to detainers issued by ICE.

The bill makes them all culpable to the Federal Law violations and coincides with the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Bill proposed by Senator Pat Tooney (R-PA), which withholds grant money to areas not upholding the law of the land.

Developing story...will keep you posted.


Rokita's office just updated the Summary on the page. It reads as follows:

Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act 
This bill prohibits a sanctuary jurisdiction from receiving grants under certain Economic Development Assistance Programs and the Community Development Block Grant Program. A sanctuary jurisdiction is a state or political subdivision that has a statute, policy, or practice in effect that prohibits or restricts: (1) information sharing about an individual's immigration status, or (2) compliance with a lawfully issued detainer request or notification of release request. 
A state or political subdivision that complies with a detainer is deemed to be an agent of the Department of Homeland Security and is authorized to take actions to comply with the detainer. 
The bill limits the liability of a state or political subdivision, or an officer or employee of such state or political subdivision, for actions in compliance with the detainer.

Tucker Carlson: Not every accuser tells the truth -- I should know

A middle-aged man going through a divorce begins dating a woman he met online. The relationship becomes torrid and eventually the man sends his girlfriend lewd texts and nude photographs of himself.

Several years later the two break up and, in revenge, the woman shares their private correspondence with other people. Nude pictures of the man wind up on the Internet and ultimately in the media. He is ridiculed and humiliated.

So who is the victim here? If you guessed the 68-year-old man whose five grandchildren can now find naked pictures of him online, you obviously haven't been reading The Washington Post lately. The man in question is Republican Congressman Joe Barton of Texas. And, according to the The Washington Post, he deserves to be ashamed of his "secret sex life."

'Blowback': Clinton campaign planned to fire me over email probe, Obama intel watchdog says

A government watchdog who played a central role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation during the Obama administration told Fox News that he, his family and his staffers faced an intense backlash at the time from Clinton allies – and that the campaign even put out word that it planned to fire him if the Democratic presidential nominee won the 2016 election.

“There was personal blowback. Personal blowback to me, to my family, to my office,” former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III said.

The Obama appointee discussed his role in the Clinton email probe for the first time on television, during an exclusive interview with Fox News aired on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." McCullough – who came to the inspector general position with more than two decades of experience at the FBI, Treasury and intelligence community – shed light on how quickly the probe was politicized and his office was marginalized by Democrats.


In One German Region, Unemployment of Migrant Crisis Arrivals is 96 Per Cent

Migrant unemployment continues to be a major problem with the district of Salzlandkreis seeing only 56 out of 1,530 migrants registered at the jobcentre able to find full-time work.

While the number is up from last year, when 24 migrants were in full-time positions, the total percentage of the total migrant workforce on work is only 3.6 per cent, Mitteldeutsche Zeitung reports.

“The refugee target group still presents a special challenge,” head of the district employment agency Thomas Holz said. Mr. Holz said the main issues are the language barrier and the recognition of qualifications and academic degrees from overseas.

The German Federal Employment Agency claimed last year that 74 per cent of the newly arrived migrants were only fit for menial labour jobs and are unlikely to fill the vacancies for skilled labour that is in demand.


After the ABC Lie Exposed, Markets Open Substantially Higher!

By Thornton Crowe

Retirees can breathe again as their 401Ks recover from the big Friday Freefall...

The Market just opened 240+ points higher than it's dismal showing on Friday afternoon after Brian Ross lied led to 350+ crash. Many speculate the crash demonstrated how close the Wall Street investors are following President Trump and his agenda for America. Should it be derailed, investors answers the call with sell-offs, meaning losses for many.

In a provocative tweet over the weekend, the President suggested investors who experienced losses on Friday, should entertain a lawsuit against ABC News and Brian Ross.
Others have questioned whether ABC and Ross had much to gain from a crashing market. However, it would seem both lack the prowess and savvy to create such a plot.

Good to see the market rebounding to its proper highs as we move forward with the new Tax Bill in conference, starting today!

Ravens, NFL scramble as fans stay home

It seems paradoxical: The Ravens, who have sold out every home game since they arrived in Baltimore in 1996, are advertising tickets for Sunday’s contest at M&T Bank Stadium.

But this is where the Ravens find themselves in 2017: Contemplating the prospect of empty seats, and appealing to fans to “Win Together. Purchase your tickets today!” even as the team is contending for what would be its first playoff berth since 2014.

Thousands of fans are trying to resell their tickets to the sold-out game Sunday against theDetroit Lions at 71,000-seat M&T Bank Stadium via Ticketmaster, the team’s official resale outlet, or StubHub. Seats were available this week in almost every section; an $80 ticket for an upper end zone seat could be had for as little as $29.

Every week, some ticket holders must miss the game. But the NFL is laboring across the board this season to maintain its fan base and minimize no-shows. It’s not just the Ravens. Television ratings are down league-wide and empty seats can be seen at many games.


Man Pulls Daughter out of School Early for Deer Hunting Season

Texas hunter did not let school get in the way of taking his daughter hunting at the height of deer hunting season.

Jeff Pavlock of Rosenberg posted to Facebook a screenshot of his 12-year-old daughter’s attendance sheet stating that his daughter would be leaving school early to partake in deer hunting season.

“I put down 'headed to go put the smack down on a monster buck' … That’s the way we do it here in Texas,” Pavlock told KPRC:

Pavlock’s post went viral on social media after he published it Tuesday. More than 80,000 people shared his Facebook photo as of Saturday afternoon.


Walmart Selling ‘Antifa’ Fan Gear

Walmart is selling “Antifa” clothing that “will [allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism).”

The mega-retailer is offering at least 13 different sweatshirts “made in Mexico of 100% COTTON for all-day comfort” promoting the group whose activities were “formally classified” by the Obama Administration “as domestic terrorist violence” as early as April 2016, according to Politico, despite the group’s efforts to downplay this determination.

“Antifa,” or Anti-Fascist Action, is an informal grouping of communist, anarchist, and other far-left street gangs. These unapologetically violent bands of leftists were largely unknown in the United States until recent years, when America’s post-Occupy Wall Street far-left began adopting the name.

Antifa is well known for dozens of violent crimes against people they consider “fascists” on both sides of the Atlantic.

New study: Dogs smarter than cats

Researchers have counted the number of neurons in different species and crowned dogs as the smartest – saying the mass of neural connections puts them ahead in categories of thinking, planning and complex behavior.

The study was led by Suzana Herculano-Houzel, an associate professor of Psychology and Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University. She created the method of accurately measuring the amount of neurons in the brain, the university said in a statement announcing the findings.

“I’m 100 percent a dog person,” Ms. Herculano-Houzel said in the statement, “but, with that disclaimer, our findings mean to me that dogs have the biological capability of doing much more complex and flexible things with their lives than cats can. At the least, we now have some biology that people can factor into their discussions about who’s smarter, cats or dogs.”

Dogs were found to have 530 million cortical neurons compared to cats with only about 250 million. The researchers had earlier thought that brain size corresponded with the number of neurons but in a comparison of brains, for example a dog and a brown bear — the dog had more neurons despite the brown bear having a significantly larger brain.

Wikileaks Affirms Pro-Clinton DOJ Agenda

By Thornton Crowe

DOJ Corruption Unhinged...

An email posted on Wikileaks over a year ago, showing the Department of Justice's Assistant Attorney Peter Kadzik alerting then-campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta about the oversight hearings on the Hill. This unholy alliance was also exposed by ZeroHedge on November 2, 2016 - yet many ignored this collusion.

Note: Kadzik used his personal gmail address rather than his official government address to avoid oversight and full disclosure.

Given the recent findings on FBI agent Peter Strzok, the agent who headed the HRC Email Server investigation and held a strong hatred for Donald Trump while being pro-Clinton, we are finding the tentacles of the Clinton Machine were deep within the DOJ. Note: As per FBI Policy: Agents are strictly forbidden, yet some under James Comey were allowed. 

Therefore, it is a safe bet, there were others working towards exonerating Clinton's criminality other than former disgraced director, James Comey - whom penned her exoneration two months prior to the Bureau's interview with her and the Tarmac meeting between Loretta Lynch and former president Bill Clinton.

Time for a DOJ purge?

The Storm has definitely arrived!

"Deadliest Year Ever" - Baltimore Eclipses 2016 Homicide Total

As of 11:20am ET. Thursday morning, the wave of violent crime continued in Baltimore with the death of a 21-year old man by gunfire.

The significance of this latest death in Baltimore’s urban war zone, is that total homicides in 2017 have now topped 2016 levels at319, and there is still one month to go.

Homicides in Baltimore have averaged 29 per month, which could indicate Baltimore is now on track for the deadliest year ever to be recorded. The all-time per-capita record was set back in 2015, with 344 homicides, said Fox News.


Republican Tax Bill Cancels $23 Billion In Tax Credits For Illegal Aliens

GOP Tax Reform Bill Will Stop Illegal Immigrants from Collecting Tax Credits

According to its authors, the new GOP tax bill will strip illegal immigrants of their ability to claim and collect several major tax credits.

Doing so will save the federal government an estimated $23.1 billion over the next decade.

The bill will do this by closing IRS loopholes and requiring all taxpayers to submit work-eligible Social Security numbers in order to claim tax credits.

This may come as a shock to some who take for granted the assumption that illegal aliens don’t receive state benefits—especially tax credits. However, it’s an open secret that the IRS has allowed illegal aliens who pay tax to collect a number of tax benefits, including the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit.


Hundreds of Md. IDs, intended for undocumented immigrants, went to people with fake credentials

Maryland auditors say the state has issued nearly 600 fraudulent and questionable driver’s licenses and identification cards meant for undocumented immigrants, who have been eligible for the credentials in the state since 2014.

It was not clear who received the fraudulent documents; officials said the people who obtained them under false pretenses might have been undocumented immigrants, U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.

Under a 2014 state law, undocumented immigrants in Maryland can receive driver’s licenses and identification cards by meeting several criteria, including confirming their identity, proving Maryland residency and submitting a verification number that the state comptroller’s office provides after they’ve shown evidence of filing state tax returns for the two previous years.

“Congratulations to ABC News for suspending Brian Ross for his horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt,” Trump wrote.

Congratulations to @ABC News for suspending Brian Ross for his horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt. More Networks and “papers” should do the same with their Fake News!
ABC executives suspended Ross for four weeks without pay, after first trying to “clarify” a false report that Flynn was expected to testify that as a candidate, Trump directed his former National Security Adviser to contact the Russians on his behalf.

“More Networks and ‘papers’ should do the same with their Fake News!” Trump said, welcoming the decision.
