Subject: Deep State Takedown In Progress: Is Trump About To Start Arresting Top Democrats And Bringing Them To Justice?

When Donald Trump gets hit, he always hits back even harder. So when the deep state decided to conduct a legal witch hunt against President Trump and his family, they should have expected that Trump would return the favor.

In recent days, there have been all sorts of rumblings about sealed indictments, pending arrests and a “deep state takedown”. Many believe that we are on the verge of seeing some of the most prominent Democrats in the entire nation being arrested and thrown in prison.

We shall see how all of this plays out, but in this article I am going to focus on the things that have been confirmed so far.

First of all, let’s talk about the documents that are going to be released on Friday. According to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, the State Department is scheduled to release 2,800 government documents which were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop…

.@StateDept will publish releasable portions of 2800 government docs that @FBI found on Anthony Weiner laptop tomorrow (Dec. 29th). Again, thanks to @JudicialWatch lawsuits. Will @RealDonaldTrump DOJ finally take action on Clinton/Abedin misdeeds?


95 Years Ago, The USSR Was Formed. Let’s Look At The Numbers

As America begins preparations for Sunday’s New Year’s Eve festivities, some might be celebrating another holiday — that of the formation of the Soviet Union.

The USSR, established Dec. 30, 1922 by Vladimir Lenin, was born out of the same needless bloodshed that would later define it. Five years prior in 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution began, sparking a civil war that would leave millions dead, many by sheer acts of murder committed by competing factions.

Estimates state that up to 9 million individuals perished during the Russian Revolution — mostly needlessly through famine and various outbreaks of disease. Bolshevik violence became so pervasive that the term “Red Terror” is now scarred into the psyche of many Russians. The secret police of the proto-USSR, the Cheka, are estimated to have murdered 100,000 to 500,000 individuals through forced labor or mass executions from 1917 to 1922.

Things didn’t get much better once the Soviet republic was finally established. After Lenin’s death in 1924, Joseph Stalin took the reigns and left his bloody mark on history.


LA Call of Duty player arrested for fatal swatting hoax

Los Angeles police on Friday arrested a 25-year-old gamer they say made a prank call that led a SWAT team to fatally shoot an innocent man over an online gaming dispute.

Tyler Barriss was detained by the LAPD hours after Andrew Finch, 28, of Wichita, Kansas, was shot dead by police.

Authorities suspect Barriss called 911 and concocted a story about a hostage crisis in a Wichita, Kansas home.

Barriss then allegedly gave 911 dispatchers Finch's address in Wichita.

Barriss is alleged to have been engaged in a practice known in the online gaming world as 'swatting' - or sending a SWAT team to the home of another person by claiming there was an emergency that warranted it.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News that Barriss became involved in a dispute with an online gamer.


Hmmmm, Should I?

Academic: Professors Must Prevent 'Assimilation' Of 'Whiteness'

‘Preservation of Whiteness’ detrimental to students of color, says professor

An academic paper published by the SIT Graduate Institute calls on educators to “promote racial identity exploration” so that students of color do not “assimilate” into the dominant culture.

The author, Hadiel Mohamed, says her research “aims to answer how educators can incorporate ethnic/racial identity development in the classroom for youth of color who are driven to pursue Whiteness,” making clear as she goes along that she views “assimilation” as an unambiguously negative outcome.

“Historically, our education system has been used as an oppressive tool for people of color,” she contends, attributing the condition to “the lack of representation within adults, distance caused by one-sided material, denial of racial tensions or experiences, and implicit bias from educators, classmates, and administration.”


Docs Show Bundy Prosecutors Hid Evidence

Unsealed court documents detail how the team of prosecutors tasked with convicting Cliven Bundy and his sons of crimes relating to a 2014 armed standoff failed to turn over potential exculpatory evidence to the court, The Oregonian reports.

The Bundys’ case ended in a mistrial Dec. 20 after Judge Gloria Navarroruled that prosecutors violated the civil rights of the defendants by withholding evidence supporting the Bundys’ case. Navarro is considering dismissing the case “with prejudice” and blocking prosecutors from retrying the case. Her decision will come Jan. 8, according to The New York Times.

“There were approximately 3,000 pages that were provided to us only after we started trial,” Bundy lawyer Bret D. Whipple told TheNYT. “I personally have never seen anything like this, especially in a case of such importance.”


WILLIAMS: Educational Rot

My recent columns have focused on the extremely poor educational outcomes for black students. There's enough blame for all involved to have their fair share. That includes students who are hostile and alien to the educational process and have derelict, uninterested home environments. After all, if there is not someone in the home to ensure that a youngster does his homework, has wholesome meals, gets eight to 10 hours of sleep and behaves in school, educational dollars won't produce much.

There's another educational issue that's neither flattering nor comfortable to confront. That's the low academic quality of so many teachers. It's an issue that must be confronted and dealt with if we're to improve the quality of education. Most states require prospective teachers to pass a certification test. How about a sample of some of the test questions.

Here's a question from a recent test given to college students in Michigan planning to become teachers: "Which of the following is largest? a. 1/4, b. 3/5, c. 1/2, d. 9/20." Another question: "A town planning committee must decide how to use a 115-acre piece of land. The committee sets aside 20 acres of the land for watershed protection and an additional 37.4 acres for recreation. How much of the land is set aside for watershed protection and recreation? a. 43.15 acres, b. 54.6 acres, c. 57.4 acres, d. 60.4 acres."

The Arizona teacher certification test asks: "Janet can type 250 words in 5 minutes, what is her typing rate per minute? a. 50wpm, b. 66wpm, c. 55wpm, d. 45wpm." The California Basic Educational Skills Test asks the test taker to find the verb in the following sentence: "The interior temperatures of even the coolest stars are measured in millions of degrees. a. Coolest, b. Of even, c. Are measured, d. In millions." A CBEST math question is: "You purchase a car making a down payment of $3,000 and 6 monthly payments of $225. How much have you paid so far for the car? a. $3225, b. $4350, c. $5375, d. $6550, e. $6398."


Thieves are electrocuted and die in lighting facility

Two would-be thieves were found dead Friday inside a Detroit public lighting facility after they were electrocuted by 24,000 volts.

Officials said the pair was found at a substation of the Detroit Public Lighting Department on the city's east side around 6.50am on Friday.

The thieves were attempting to steal copper wire when one of the men came in contact with a 24,000-volt transformer and transferred the current along to the other, reported WDIV.

Police said the bodies were badly burned and that the current was so strong that they bodies were fused together.


Federal Court Rules that HS Football Player Can't Be Forced to Stand During the National Anthem

A federal court has ruled that a high school in California cannot force a protesting player to stand for the national anthem.

The player, a Native American student referred to in court documents as “V.A.,” had been kneeling in protest during the national anthem. Copying the anthem protests which have become so prevalent in the NFL.

The San Pasqual Valley Unified School District had passed a rule banning anthem protests after an incident where students at a rival school, shouted racial slurs at San Pasqual students who were protesting during the anthem.

The attorney for V.A., Katie Traverso, released a statement hailing the federal court’s ruling.


Fisherman finds Maryland Blue Crab in Crystal River

CRYSTAL RIVER -- A fisherman in Crystal River made quite the catch this week. Turns out one of his blue crabs had traveled to our area all the way from Maryland! Experts say that's very unusual.

Crab had been tagged by scientists
Crab traveled from Chesapeake Bay to gulf over several years
Fisherman working with scientists to return crab

It’s certainly not something Thomas Cochran with TJE Seafood expected to find while taking in his normal harvest from King's Bay.

"I was looking around like, is this a joke or is this something that's all over or is this one of a kind?” he explained.

He noticed the pink tag on the crab and called the number listed. Turns out the crab had been tagged by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in the Chesapeake Bay, and over the course of several years made his way into the gulf and then into King's Bay.

A scientist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center told us this is the furthest a blue crab has traveled since they started tagging them.

"We've tagged a number of crabs in the Chesapeake Bay. Some of them get captured as far south as North Carolina," Robert Aguilar, a biologist at the center, said.

Snow On The Way from NWS Wakefield

A Winter Storm WATCH remains in effect for much of eastern VA and northeast NC, as well as the lower MD eastern shore. Snowfall accumulations of 3-6" are expected along the coast, with around an inch closer to the I-95 corridor. Be sure to check back often for the latest forecast information.

WikiLeaks Drops Proof That NYTimes Colluded With Hillary Clinton

You thought 2017 was going to end without a bang — other than the fireworks?

Think again.

After The New York Times on Saturday published a story headlined "Republican Attacks on Mueller and F.B.I. Open New Rift in G.O.P.," WikiLeaks couldn't stand it anymore. In a late-night post on Twitter, WikiLeaks revealed that a Times reporter used to feed State Department email updates of the stories the paper would be publishing DAYS before the stories appeared.

At the time, Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State.


Report: Two Demonstrators Killed in Iran Anti-Government Protests

Reuters reports: Street protests hit Iran for a third day running on Saturday, spreading to the capital Tehran with crowds confronting police and attacking some state buildings, and a social media report said two demonstrators had been shot dead in a provincial town.

The wave of anti-government demonstrations, prompted in part by discontent over economic hardship and alleged corruption, are the most serious since months of unrest in 2009 that followed the disputed re-election of then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Pro-government rallies were held in some 1,200 cities and towns in all, state television reported.

At the same time, anti-government demonstrations broke out anew in a string of cities and in Tehran for the first time where protesters confronted and stoned riot police around the main university, with pro-government crowds nearby.

Videos posted on social media from the western town of Dorud showed two young men lying motionless on the ground, covered with blood, and a voiceover said they had been shot dead by riot police firing on protesters.


Judge Upholds Controversial Bill Requiring Taxpayers to Fund Abortions in Illinois

An Illinois Circuit Court judge rejected an attempt to block House Bill 40, which requires Illinois residents to pay for abortions regardless of their moral convictions in the matter.

The bill forces Illinois state residents to fund abortions of Medicaid recipients and state employee health insurance beneficiaries and sets no expense ceiling nor a limit on the number of abortions that Medicaid will cover.

On Thursday, a conservative, pro-life law firm filed for an emergency injunction concerning a recent lawsuit — Springfield Right to Life v. Norwood — in which the plaintiffs are seeking a restraining order and injunction against the bill.

Associate Judge Jennifer M. Ascher of Illinois’s Seventh Judicial Circuit Court heard the case Thursday and denied the request for an emergency injunction.


Police arrest suspects in Richard Childress home invasion

Three suspects have been arrested in connection with an attempted robbery at NASCAR team owner Richard Childress’ Lexington, N.C., estate home on December 17.

Childress, who was in the house with his wife at the time and was alerted to their presence when they set off an alarm, chased them away by firing a handgun at them before they could steal anything.

No one was injured in the incident.

North Carolina’s “Castle Doctrine” allows the use of deadly force for self-defense in a home invasion situation.

Childress is the second vice president of the National Rifle Association.


The Math Adds Up for Trump’s Claim That USPS Undercharges Amazon

Following a tweet from President Trump today where he called out Amazon and the United States Postal Service, Breitbart News investigated Trump’s claims.

“Why is the United States Post Office, which is losing many billions of dollars a year, while charging Amazon and others so little to deliver their packages, making Amazon richer and the Post Office dumber and poorer? Should be charging MUCH MORE!” Trump said in a tweet posted on Friday.

Trump’s claim that the USPS is losing billions of dollars is entirely correct, in 2016 the USPS announced a $5.6 billion net loss and in 2017 stated a $2.7 billion net loss, making this the eleventh year that the Postal Service has announced a loss. The total from 2007-17 amounts to a staggering $65.1 billion in losses. Things do not seem to be looking up for the organization anytime soon, with the USPS predicting in their public 2018 Integrated Financial Plan that they would suffer a net loss of $5.2 billion in 2018. With mail volume at a 29 year low and amassing large amounts of debt, the Postal Service is facing a tough time ahead.

A Citigroup analysis in July of 2017 found that a subsidy of $1.46 was attached to every Amazon package delivered by USPS due to the Postal Service delivering the company’s packages below their own costs. It was determined in 2007 by the Postal Service and its regulator that a minimum of 5.5 percent of the Postal Service’s fixed costs must be allocated to package deliveries. Ten years later, despite 25 percent of USPS’s revenue coming from packages, the percentage of fixed costs allocated to packages has not increased enough to become profitable.


Corrective Nutrition-- How vitamins for convicts would save taxpayers' money

I used to teach college courses in jail. No, not as an inmate. As an adjunct professor.

"Jail is the best I've ever had it," said one of my penitentiary students. The other inmates in my remedial health science class looked at him with surprise equal to my own. One of them asked how that could possibly be.

He answered, "Because in jail I have a bed, a roof over my head, and three meals a day."

Makes you think, doesn't it? From the bottom of the barrel it can be a long climb out.

During one class, I was lecturing on human nutrition. I mentioned foods that are especially wholesome, such as leafy vegetables, legumes (peas, beans lentils), whole grains, wheat germ and such. To spark class interest, I asked what foods the prisoners were fed. White bread, meat, potatoes and sugar was the general consensus.

"What about vitamin supplements?" I asked.

"No. They never give 'em to us," came the reply. "Got to buy them yourself, at the commissary store. They just got multiple vitamin pills there. Gotta buy them with your own money."

I mentioned that a multiple vitamin each day would be a good idea for every inmate. They listened. I said that, really, three multis a day would be even better: one with each meal.

Fifteen years ago, the BBC reported that a double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that adding vitamins to the diets of inmates at a maximum security institution cut offenses by 25%. The greatest reduction was for serious offenses, including violence, which fell by 40%. There was no such reduction for those on placebos.

The researchers said that improving diets could be a cost-effective way of reducing crime in the community and also reducing the prison population. To quote lead study author Bernard Gesch, "the improvement was huge."

NYT: Centre-Left in Retreat, Davos Elite 'Deluded' Over Welfare Statism and Globalism

In a scathing condemnation of the attitudes of the “Davos elite”, the political editor for Germany’s Die Zeit newspaper haspenned an article for the New York Times blasting the “two built-in contradictions” of social democracy.

Jochen Bittner, who writes once a month for the NYT, begins by dissecting the electoral irrelevance of Germany’s Social Democrat party, led by former European Parliament president Martin Schulz. He diagnoses social democracy’s decline by outlining two major “contradictions”.

Firstly, that you can broaden the domestic welfare state and its crony capitalist underpinning while shifting policy-making to larger, transnational institutions like the European Union. Secondly, that this same welfare state can exist in a world of “open borders” or open migration.

“Instead of at last addressing this contradiction, prominent Social Democrats appear intent on solving the dilemma of internationalism by making it bigger. Martin Schulz, the party’s leader, has just proposed a “United States of Europe” by 2025 — and to expel European Union member states that won’t join in his flight of fancy,” he writes of the first problem.


2-1-1 Can Connect Residents to Help During Extreme Cold

(January 2, 2018, Salisbury, MD) With the continued extreme cold and the threat of snow this week, Wicomico County Health Officer Lori Brewster reminds residents that they can find resources to help with issues caused by the cold by dialing 2-1-1. “This service will connect callers to local resources that are available to people who don’t have heat or who are homeless,” Brewster says. “2-1-1 can be called by anyone at any time,” Brewster states, “and trained specialists will provide assistance for dealing with challenges such as housing and utility shutoffs.”

Brewster provides residents some other key actions to take to stay safe during extreme cold:

• Check daily on those who live alone to ensure they have what they need to survive the cold.

• Keep the very young, the elderly, and those with medical issues such as breathing or circulation problems inside as much as possible.

• Never heat inside with ovens or grills, and maintain a 3’ boundary around space heaters.

• Check carbon monoxide sensors to make sure they’re in working order.

• When going outside, dress in layers and wear a hat and mittens; cover mouth with a scarf.

• Check local weather conditions frequently and prepare for weather events beforehand.

• Bring outside pets inside, and provide them with fresh water and extra food.

Hillary Clinton backer paid $500G to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day, report says

One of Hillary Clinton’s wealthy pals paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election,The New York Times reported Sunday.

Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit Clothing and a major Clinton campaign donor for many years, gave the money to celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom who was working with a number of Trump accusers at the time, according to the paper’s bombshell report.

Bloom solicited donors by saying she was working with women who might “find the courage to speak out” against Trump if the donors would provide funds for security, relocation and possibly a “safe house,” the paper reported.

Former Clinton nemesis turned Clinton operative David Brock also donated $200,000 to the effort through a nonprofit group he founded, the paper reported in an article entitled, “Partisans, Wielding Money, Begin Seeking to Exploit Harassment Claims.”

Bloom told the Times that the effort was unproductive. One woman requested $2 million then decided not to come forward. Nor did any other women.

Bloom said she refunded most of the cash, keeping only some funds for out-of-pocket expenses accrued while working to vet and prepare cases.

Rep. Dave Brat: 2018 DACA Amnesty Fight ‘Will Determine the Nature of Our Country’

“If we fail on this, just picture Europe,” said Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) of what would happen if Congress failed to permanently repair America’s “broken immigration system” and just passed another amnesty instead.

Brat made his comments on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight in an interview with Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour.

America will resemble “France, Sweden, Germany, [or] the Netherlands” in the absence of enacting an immigration system “for the benefit of American citizens and U.S. workers,” said Brat.

Immigration is a top-priority issue, said Brat: “This is not like any other policy issue. This will determine the nature of our country over the next decades in how we settle this. Either we’re going to add to the anxiety and all this hate-filled back and forth, or we find an economic solution for this country moving forward.”

Brat discussed Congress’s considerations to codify the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy into federal law..

Donald Trump Wishes Happy New Year to the ‘Haters’ and Even the ‘Fake News Media’

President Donald Trump extended warm wishes to Americans on New Year’s Eve, even the “haters” and the “Fake News Media.”

Iran: 12 Killed in Protests, Attacks on Security

The most significant protests in eight years are rocking Iran, with state media reporting Monday that at least 12 demonstrators have been killed.

Hundreds of people have been arrested and activists are taking the rare step of publicly criticizing the country's religious leaders.

The protests started out as local rallies against Iran's economic problems but have since spread in both geography and scope.

Iranians last week took to the streets of Mashhad, the country's second-largest city, in protest at high inflation and the rising prices of everyday goods.

What started as an isolated economic grievance appears to have morphed into a wider expression of dissatisfaction with the government.

"I think it's far more serious than we anticipated a few days ago," said Sanam Vakil, an associate fellow at London's Chatham House think tank.

America: Home Of The Human Lab Rats - Why Prescription Medications Are Mostly Unsafe Chemical Experiments That Worsen Overall Health

Most people think it’s completely normal to take prescription medications, believing that our bodies need synthetic, lab-made chemicals to balance or help control bodily functions or biological processes that aren’t performing properly. What other choices do we have, after all?

Put it this way: Medical doctors go to college for eight years to learn how to juggle multiple medications while reading all of your symptoms with fancy technological diagnostic tests, so shouldn’t you just shut the heck up and do what you’re told, when you’re told, without asking annoying, invasive questions that will most likely have boondoggles for answers?

How many people, after all, are not taking at least one medication for anxiety, depression, inflammation, cholesterol, blood pressure, insomnia or pain?

Actually, there are plenty of us, because we know that “Western” medicine isn’t really medicine at all, but symptom-cover-up chemicals for deeper rooted problems that almost always stem from what we eat, drink and put on our bodies.

Are you a “drug abuser” when you simply take the drugs prescribed to you by a medical doctor?


Campus Safety

This is an interesting quote in Campus Safety Magazine. I wonder if this statistic applies to schools on Delmarva? As always this is anonymous information.

These efforts, taken by multiple organizations, have resulted in several valuable reports that provide a comprehensive— if somewhat overwhelming— look at school shooting data of the past. School officials and first responders should familiarize themselves with these statistics even as they maintain an all-hazards approach to emergency planning.

By now nearly all schools have planned their response to nearly 90 percent of public schools had a written plan for responding to school shootings, and 70 percent of those schools had drilled students on the plan. school shootings: In 2016, the CDC found.

This is for good reason: Shootings are among the most deadly types of emergencies a school may face, and one recent study even found that school shootings are increasing on college campuses.

Two Major Clinton Donors Spent $700,000 to Find Trump Accusers

Left-wing political operatives and Hillary Clinton backers David Brock and Susie Tompkins Buell bankrolled $700,000 allegedly to find people who would accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day 2016.

Brock’s American Bridge 21st Century Foundation and Buell, a major donor to the foundation, reportedly donated the six-figure sums to Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which specializes in sexual harassment allegations against public figures, according to a report from the New York Times.

Brock gave $200,000, and one of his major donors, Susie Tompkins Buell, gave $500,000.

Bloom’s firm capitalized on the sexual harassment allegations against Trump in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to media outlets for a 33 percent commission.

Follow Up on Windmills 

There is a vast wasteland of no information on what it costs to put up a windmill, and absolutely zero on the one at Ches. College, however, the last link on the previous email I sent you has a lot of REAL numbers on the Lake Land College set of 4 in Mattoon, Illinois. The site above has some average numbers on total cost of an installed unit being between $125k and $200k all hooked up and running. pp. 29-31. I did the math on Mattoon college and they paid $134.00 per KWH over the 4 year life span of their now defunct windmills.

So, with that in mind, and the Chesapeake College single tower installed cost, might have run $150k of our money. By their own numbers, the turbine put out 250 KWH per month, measured when new and only one month, but let’s just run with that.

Put into service Nov. 1, 2011, it ran supposedly until February of 2017 when a lightning strike or power surge of some sort fried it. That’s 61 months. I have been past that thing several times prior to that on windy days with it NOT spinning, but let’s just go with Liberalspeak for now.

61 months x 250 KWH = 15,250 KWH generated over its lifetime. $150,000 divided by 15,250 = $9.84 per KWH.





My electric bill just came in the mail from Delmarva Power @ $163.00 for 1084 KWH, or $0.15 per KWH. And, they’re making good money off that!

So, Chesapeake College, who put this windmill up for “Educational Purposes” is now saying that since it no longer produced power, it no longer serves as an educational tool, and they took it down (More cost). I totally disagree with that statement, as I suggest anyone believing that go back and re-read what I just wrote! This STUPID windmill has served as one of the BEST educational tools for our entire nation! What did we learn?

Windmills cost too much to build.
Windmills are susceptible to lightning.
Windmills only last about 4 years on land with regular maintenance.
Erecting them offshore would be stupid.
Wind power is 800 times more expensive than oil generated power.

So, the logical decision was made by the Big Heads at Chesapeake College………………...GO SOLAR!!!!!!!

It really makes ALL the sense in the world. They can put up 6 acres of solar panels and all the related wiring and infrastructure, adding on several car charging stations for public use, ALL FOR FREE!! Just like that STUPID WINDMILL, it’s done with OTHER PEOPLES’ MONEY! AND they will still have “justification” to have an Alternative Energy Program complete with several professors and classroom space to sell to their gullible students!


Then, lightning will strike.
Wind damage will occur
Panels will become less efficient with age
Transformers will blow
Solar technology will make today’s panels obsolete in 7 years.
Oil supplied power will continue to be more cost effective to those of us who are forced to use REAL MONEY.

And the cycle will repeat, because, Liberalism.

And Liberal Jim will still lobby for offshore windmills so he can fill his pockets with more of our money.

Top 10 Craziest College Campus Stories of 2017

There were many crazy moments to choose from in 2017 as universities became free speech battlegrounds.

Between protests that involved students carrying baseball bats around campus and the interrogation of a teaching assistant who simply showed a debate clip from public television, 2017 may have been one of the most tumultuous years for college campuses in recent memory.

Here are our picks for the craziest stories of the year:

10. A University of Pennsylvania teaching assistant brags on Twitter about prioritizing students based on race and gender.

University of Pennsylvania teaching assistant Stephanie McKellop explained in October how her pedagogical tactic of “progressive stacking” works in practice: “I will always call on my Black women students first. Other POC get second tier priority. WW [white women] come next. And, if I have to, white men.”

The University of Pennsylvania recently announced that McKellop is being relieved of her teaching duties.

9. York University professor argues that big stomachs are “glorious.”

Allyson Mitchell, a professor at York University’s School of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, argued in a journal article published in 2017 that “fat queer art” can liberate obese individuals from the social perception that they are slow and lazy.

A Viewer Writes: WHERE’S MY FLAG?

The summer before last, I was driving north on Division Street downtown on a Saturday and noticed the flag at the war memorial at Rt. 50 was blowing in the strong wind hanging on by just the bottom clip. not wanting that flag to blow down and touch the ground, I stopped and assessed the situation. The halyard was old and frayed and the top clip was either broken or otherwise unrepairable, so I gathered up the flag in my arms, took it off the remaining halyard clip, and drove it down to the City Police station and turned it over to them. The officers thanked me for the effort and took the flag in. I did see it flying again about a month or two later when I was waiting at the stoplight, but only for a short time.

Now, its been missing for at least 10 months or more. I stopped and saw the reason why. The halyard line is still frayed and rotted, and the brass clip is broken as well. This is “Happening” right across the street from Mayor Jake Day’s office. One would thing that a City Mayor and member of our Military Service would think a little more of a war memorial dedicated to the servicemen who fought for our Peace and Freedom we enjoy today. Ace Hardware, Lowe’s and Home Depot all carry the hardware items shown in the pictures here all for about $25.00 or less. I guess Jakie Boi doesn’t value the sacrifices of our war dead past the $25 mark.

Trump on Iran: 'Time for a Change'

President Donald Trump, noting the Iranian people “are hungry for food and freedom,” said it is “time for a change.”

Mr. Trump’s comments came in a tweet Monday morning.

At least 12 people have been reported killed during demonstrations in Iran.

Trump’s administration has placed additional sanctions on the country.

Trump said on Twitter a day earlier that the U.S. will be watching "very closely" for human rights violations during the protests.


Border Patrol Agent Hospitalized After Rock Attack

A Border Patrol agent patrolling the border on an ATV was hospitalized after being assaulted with a large rock. The attack occurred a few miles east of the San Ysidro Port of Entry in a known human smuggling area.

The Border Patrol agent, assigned to the Chula Vista station sustained injuries after being “rocked” while patrolling along the border just north of Libertad Colonia, Border Patrol Agent Eduardo Olmos confirmed to Breitbart Texas on Sunday. The attacker struck the agent with a dodge ball-sized rock as he patrolled on an ATV about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. The agent was traveling about 20 m.p.h. when struck by the rock.

The agent patrolled along the primary fence line in what Agent Olmos described as foggy conditions. “The smugglers take advantage of the fog to smuggle larger numbers of people across the border while the cameras have reduced visibility,” Olmos stated.

A group of people gathered along the southern side of the fence. It appears one of these people threw a large rock that struck the agent in the chest — knocking him off his ATV. “This is a very serious attack,” Olmos explained.

The force of the impact caused the ATV to flip over onto the agent.

Asylum Seekers Overwhelm San Diego Border from Eritrea, Cameroon and Mexico

Migrants from countries like Eritrea, Cameroon, and Mexico have flooded the U.S. southern border in San Diego to such an extent in recent days that U.S. border officials have been unable to process them without long lines forming on the Tijuana side of the border.

Nearly 100 migrants lined up in a plaza on the Mexico side of the border that leads to the San Ysidro pedestrian border crossing in San Diego last week because of the backlog, according to the San Diego Union Tribune. Mexican officials told those who tried to sleep in the plaza that they had to leave. Eritrean migrants cited in the article claimed that last Monday 25 migrants were temporarily jailed for waiting in the plaza.

In just the month of October 2017 CBP Border Patrol San Diego border sector reported apprehension of individuals from Bangladesh (12), Brazil (1), Camaroon (3), Chad (1), China (16), El Salvador (76), Eritrea (7), Gambia (4), Guatemala (178), Honduras (54), India (101), Iran (1), Mexico (1,877), Nepal (31), Nicaragua (1), Pakistan (13), Peru (1), Somalia (1), and “Unknown” (1) — a total of 2,379 individuals. These numbers are similar to volumes seen in this sector for October since 2012.

Armed with new data, officials target 'drug-dealing' doctors

The pain clinic tucked into the corner of a low-slung suburban strip mall was an open secret.

Patients would travel hundreds of miles to see Dr. Andrzej Zielke, eager for what authorities described as a steady flow of prescriptions for the kinds of powerful painkillers that ushered the nation into its worst drug crisis in history.

At least one of Zielke's patients died of an overdose, and prosecutors say others became so dependent on oxycodone and other opioids they would crowd his office, sometimes sleeping in the waiting room. Some peddled their pills near tumble-down storefronts and on blighted street corners in addiction-plagued parts of Allegheny County, where deaths by drug overdose reached record levels last year.

But Robert Cessar, a longtime federal prosecutor, was unaware of Zielke until Justice Department officials handed him a binder of data that, he said, confirmed what pill-seekers from as far away as Ohio and Virginia already knew. The doctor who offered ozone therapy and herbal pain remedies was also prescribing highly addictive narcotics to patients who didn't need them, according to an indictment charging him with conspiracy and unlawfully distributing controlled substances.

No More Aid to Pakistan

President Donald Trump lashed out at Pakistan on Twitter just a few minutes past 7:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Day, expressing frustration at Islamabad’s inadequate efforts against terrorism and implying that U.S. foreign aid will be terminated as a result.
The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!
It is not yet clear whether the “no more” exclamation means the complete or partial termination, or temporary suspension, of American aid to Pakistan.

If the complete termination of U.S. foreign aid does indeed become official policy, it would be a far more dramatic step than withholding all or part of America’s $255 million in military assistance to Pakistan, a measure reportedly under consideration by the administration over the past few days after Pakistan refused to allow U.S. interrogators access to a captured terrorist from the hostage-taking Haqqani network.

Were American Jews' kidneys stolen during trip to Mexico?

At least four Jews from the US who traveled to Mexico for “bariatric surgery” have returned without kidneys, Yeshiva World News reported.

Bariatric surgery includes any number of medical procedures which shrink or reconfigure the stomach for purposes of weight loss.

According to Yeshiva World News, the victims reported not feeling well upon returning to their homes in the New York area, after which it was found that their kidneys had been stolen from them.

Mexico has become a popular destination for US residents seeking bariatric surgery, due to the lower cost of the surgery in Mexico and the fact that US insurance companies are not always ready to cover the procedure in the US.

The report noted that bariatric surgery in the US costs on average between $10,800 and $35,000.

In contrast, the surgery in Mexico costs on average between $3,000 and $11,000.


Longstanding Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic Closes in Iowa

A Planned Parenthood clinic in Iowa that has performed abortions for nearly two decades has closed after the state diverted taxpayer funds to community health centers that do not perform abortions.

“After nearly two decades in the Quad Cities, on Friday, December 29, 2017, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland (PPHeartland) will officially close their Bettendorf location, a move directly resulting from defunding by extreme Iowa lawmakers,” the abortion giant announced in a press statement Wednesday.

Suzanna de Baca, PPHeartland President and CEO said, “Gov. Kim Reynolds and anti-woman lawmakers forced us to make some extremely difficult changes this year in order to continue providing care for as many patients as possible.”

The Planned Parenthood facility in the Quad Cities stopped dispensing contraception earlier this year, but still continued performing abortions.

Kuwaiti report: US gives Israel go-ahead to kill powerful Iranian general

US intelligence agencies have given Israel the green light to assassinate the senior Iranian responsible for coordinating military activity on behalf of the Islamic Republic in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida.

For the past 20 years or so, Qassem Soleimani has commanded the Quds Force — the branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of the Islamic Republic.

Soleimani is a key figure in efforts to prop up Syrian President Bashar Assad and to enable him to retake cities and towns from rebel groups during his country’s ongoing civil war. He is also responsible for providing military aid to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza — both of which are committed to the destruction of Israel — as well as to Shia and Kurdish groups in Iraq.

Thursday’s report by al-Jarida, which has been known to publish improbable-sounding stories about Israel, was widely picked up by Israeli media.

There was no immediate reaction to the report from Jerusalem or Washington.

Three years ago, Israel came close to assassinating Soleimani near Damascus, al-Jarida quoted unnamed source as saying, but the Americans tipped off the Iranians against the background of intense disagreement between Washington and Jerusalem.

That was during the Obama administration, which, according to reports at the time, was so focused on securing the 2015 Iran nuclear accord that it chose to overlook and even obstruct efforts to clamp down on Iranian-backed terror organizations.

Trump, Haley Declare America Stands with the Iranian People

President Donald Trump expressed support for “the great Iranian people” on Monday morning as reports confirmed that 12 people have been killed in the Iranian uprising so far.

Trump’s public affirmation followed that of U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley who declared Sunday that the United States stands behind the Iranian people and that she prayed “freedom and human rights will carry the day.”

“In the New Year, our hopes and prayers are with the millions of people who are suffering terribly from oppressive governments in North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and especially in Iran, where the long-repressed Iranian people are now finding their voice,” Haley said in her statement.

“The Iranian government is being tested by its own citizens. We pray that freedom and human rights will carry the day,” she added.


Trophies Are for Winning


In Maryland politics, the reckoning on sexual harassment is here

Before I was elected to the state legislature, I worked as an advocate in Annapolis. I knew there was a certain “old boys club” culture that women worked around to get their jobs done. There were offices you didn’t enter without a buddy and committees that had a reputation for being hostile to women. The women legislators I admired were all tough as nails. To do their jobs well, they had to be.

After my election in 2010, I returned to Annapolis as a member of the House of Delegates. I was warned by colleagues that relationships are everything in politics, and, above all else, I must be likable. Eager to best represent my community, I tried to take their advice.

The first time a married senior colleague grabbed my rear end, I was shocked. It was my first legislative session, and I was still getting to know people. Two of my male colleagues witnessed this sustained and shameless public groping. I was utterly humiliated. The next morning I went into a female legislator’s office, closed the door and cried.


Millennials don’t like Trump. Here’s how they say he could win them over.

WASHINGTON — Monica Robinson thought she was "good" identifying as a Republican — right up until President Donald Trump's election.

Now, nearly a year since his inauguration, she's wary. She called herself a "weaker Republican," skirting a full embrace of the GOP after dizzying months of Trump tweets, feuds and scandals. Robinson doesn't think the president's intentions are bad, but his "delivery" puts her off.

"The policies and the things that they (the GOP) want to do, I feel like are on the right track," said the 30-year-old African-American who lives in Georgia and was one of several millennials interviewed by NBC News about Trump. "The people they're having to use to get there, maybe not so much."

Robinson is hardly alone. A recent NBC News/GenForward poll found that, overall,young Americans don't like what Trump has done as president so far. Half think he'll go down in history as a poor president, and his bad marks only get worse when it comes to millennials of color.
