Father of Slain Reporter: Virginia Senators Still Have Not Called

A few facts "conveniently" got lost in the following article at in regards to the shooting in Roanoke that took the lives of the white T.V. reporter and  a white cameraman. First, an excerpt of the story:

Father of Slain Reporter: Va. Senators Still Have Not Called
The father of Alison Parker, the Virginia reporter who was killed by a former co-worker Wednesday, criticized his state's two senators for not calling him yet. 
Andy Parker said Friday that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe was the first elected official to call him but that he had not heard from Sens. Tim Kaine (D) and Mark Warner (D). 
“I have not heard a word from Sen. Kaine. And I have not heard a word from Sen. Warner," Parker said, according to CNN.

Parker ran an unsuccessful run for the Virginia House of Delegates in 2007 as a Democrat and interacted with the men on the campaign trail. 
"They campaigned for me when I ran for the House of Delegates. And it's very disappointing that Sens. Kaine and Warner haven't at least given me a call and come out against this," he said.
One of the white victim's fathers happens to be active in the Democratic party. Would a party loyalist exploit a personal tragedy for political gain ?  The article continues:
Parker has been doing numerous interviews since his daughter's death and has said his mission is to push for stricter gun control measures to prevent another mass shooting. 
Vester Lee Flanagan II, a former reporter at Alison Parker's TV news station, WDBJ, shot and killed both her and Adam Ward, a photojournalist. Flanagan also shot the woman they were interviewing, Vicki Gardner, who is expected to recover. 
What facts have we learned from the shooting so far in Roanoke ? The killer legally bought his weapon and passed the background check since he did not have a criminal record. The killer was a black homosexual and an Obama-voting member of the mainstream media. In other words, the killer was a true blue Democrat too. A Democratic voter who eagerly bought into the divisive lies of identity politics pushed by the Democratic party that resulted in the two term election of the divider in chief, Barack Obama.

A Democratic party that pushed the LIES of "Black Lives Matter' and whose party members apologized for saying that "ALL LIVES MATTER". A party that gleefully parroted the false narrative of "hands up,don't shoot" while cities were looted and burned. A party that ginned up its base that resulted in police being assassinated in the streets of America.  A party that has been taken over by the anarcho-marxist left, first in the form of Occupy Wall Street and now Black Lives Matter.

Will Andy Parker ever get a call from the Senators or Barack Obama.   Will Barack Obama say if he had a son, he would look like Adam Ward like he did withe the thug Trayvon Martin?  Will the Democrats blame the shooting on the divisive rainbow flag or the hateful and militant black power salute?  Will the white father of the daughter killed in a hate-crime by a black homosexual be abandoned by the hypocritical left? Will the leftists reward their party loyalist Andy Parker with support only if he calls for more meaningless gun control ?

The Democratic race hustlers won't be taking your calls......

Barack Obama Targets Iran Deal Opponents With LIES & Slander

Barack Obama, the divider in chief, was never concerned about leading and representing all of America's citizens or the countries best interests.. His only concern was pandering to HIS coalition, pushing HIS agenda and pretending to have a foreign policy success for the sake of HIS legacy. The Iran nuclear 'deal' is just another example of the lies and mindless attacks this amateur president is willing to resort to for the sake of any perceived success.  

Just a few days ago, any opponents of his Iran deal were 'crazies'.

Just a few days later,  the community activist in chief  now ups the ante with more lies and attacks. These two articles from are from the same day.....

The White House on Friday blasted Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz for planning a protest against the Iran deal on Capitol Hill, labeling it a “pro-war rally.” 
“Senator Cruz and Donald Trump have announced they are going to hold a big pro-war rally on the steps of the United States Capitol,” press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.

The phrase is a familiar one for Earnest, who also used it to dismiss an anti-Iran deal event organized by Cruz in July.
President Obama on Friday defended the rhetoric he has used to sell the Iran nuclear deal, which has troubled some prominent American Jewish leaders.

Obama and his allies have repeatedly claimed critics of the accord prefer war with Iran, a charge that some leaders say has triggered a backlash against Jewish lawmakers who oppose the deal.

At no point have I ever suggested, for example, that somebody is a war monger meaning they want war,” Obama said during a webcast sponsored by major American Jewish groups

Obama has ALWAYS lied about the terms and goals of the Iran nuclear "deal" and he won't be held accountable by the press, as usual. In fact, the liberal press with cheerlead for him as usual.  The secret nuclear side deals with Iran and the fact that  Obama Signed Off on Iran’s Right to Nuclear Program in Secret 2011 Talks are just two of the problems are just a few of the examples of how Obama intentionally misled the American and Israeli people.

Just listen to Barack Obama's own words from December of 2013

Barack Obama's nuclear "deal" with Iran is based on deceiving the American people.His party is no exception and will give as much support as necessary to see this bad "deal" through.  Obama's legacy is one of lies, deception and contempt for Israel and the other 49 percent of the American people that didn't vote for him.

Children Born to Illegal Immigrants DO NOT Have a Birthright to U.S. Citizenship

The term 'anchor babies' has been around for quite a while and is used in reference to birthright citizenship as defined in the 14th amendment to the Constitution.  What was the intent of the 14th amendment and  how does it apply to children born in the United States to the parents of ILLEGAL immigrants?

There are some great articles and videos on the web that explain the intent of the 14th amendment, I found this article excerpt  at NRO to be a great start.
Although the Constitution of 1787 mentioned citizens, it did not define citizenship. It was in 1868 that a definition of citizenship entered the Constitution with the ratification of the 14th Amendment. Here is the familiar language: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Thus there are two components to American citizenship: birth or naturalization in the U.S. and being subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Today, we somehow have come to believe that anyone born within the geographical limits of the U.S. is automatically subject to its jurisdiction; but this renders the jurisdiction clause utterly superfluous. If this had been the intention of the framers of the 14th Amendment, presumably they would have said simply that all persons born or naturalized in the U.S. are thereby citizens. 
Indeed, during debate over the amendment, Senator Jacob Howard, the author of the citizenship clause, attempted to assure skeptical colleagues that the language was not intended to make Indians citizens of the United States. Indians, Howard conceded, were born within the nation’s geographical limits, but he steadfastly maintained that they were not subject to its jurisdiction because they owed allegiance to their tribes and not to the U.S. Senator Lyman Trumbull, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, supported this view, arguing that “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” meant “not owing allegiance to anybody else and being subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States.”

Jurisdiction understood as allegiance, Senator Howard explained, excludes not only Indians but “persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, [or] who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.” Thus, “subject to the jurisdiction” does not simply mean, as is commonly thought today, subject to American laws or courts. It means owing exclusive political allegiance to the U.S.

In fact, the 14th Amendment won;'t have to be repealed to clarify the rules of naturalization muddied by Justice Brennan a few decades ago.  Congress already has the powers under Article 1 Section 8 which clearly states:

The Constitution and legal scholars make it clear that Congress has the power to clarify the laws on naturalization: An excerpt from CNS News of Mark Levin discussing the topic:
“And yet nobody did a better job at explaining this than Professor Edward Erler, who I’ve talked about over the years. And he’s a professor at California State University. He is also at The Claremont Institute, a senior fellow there. But more than that, he happens to be right. And he testified before a subcommittee of Congress many years ago, almost 20 years ago. And he set forth the case. 
“Now, he’s not the only one: Professor Thomas West has; Lino Graglia has, professor at University of Texas School of Law School. But even more than them, the framers of the Constitution set forth the basic law. And then we have, after the Civil War, three amendments to the Constitution – the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth – called the Civil War Amendments. And we know pretty much what occurred. 
“Professor Erler was testifying. He said, ‘It’s my considered opinion, Congress has the authority, under Section Five of the Fourth Amendment, to define the jurisdiction of the United States [of the Fourteenth Amendment, of course]. Indeed, it is my contention that Congress has exercised that power on many occasions, most recently in the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, and I would say they also exercised it with the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.”
The left leaning media and candidates for political office that don't have a legal background or an understanding of the Constitution help muddy the waters on the intent of the 14th Amendment.

Aside from the fact that anchor babies are a drain on the resources of this country and are an affront to our sovereignty,  laws and Constitution, it is obvious that the anchor baby industry  must end now.

EPA Aware of 'Blowout' Risk for Toxic Water at Gold King Mine

The Gold King Mine disaster was preventable and predictable.. Contractors and even a retiree's letter to the Silverton Miner foresaw the spill. The author of the letter even offered a plausible motive. The Obama administration's EPA desires the same end results and even works hand in hand with the tree-hugger coalition and their eco-terrorist militant branches.  The opportunity of crisis  is a favorite tool of the left and their community organizers and agitators. First, the story from CNN followed by an interesting letter to the  The Silverton Standard and The Miner
EPA aware of 'blowout' risk for toxic water at Gold King Mine

(CNN)Newly released internal documents from the Environmental Protection Agency show government contractors warned EPA managers about the potential for a "blowout" at an abandoned mine in Colorado well before millions of gallons of wastewater polluted rivers in three states. 
The documents show the EPA was aware of the "endangerment to human health and the environment" for more than a year before an accidental spill of more than 3 million gallons of wastewater at the Gold King Mine on August 5 that ran into rivers in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. 
In a June 2014 work order, the contractor, Environmental Restoration, warned the EPA that conditions at the abandoned mine "could result in a blowout" of wastewater containing toxic heavy metals such as manganese, copper, zinc and cadmium.
The newly released documents show the contractor again warned the EPA of the dangers in May 2015. 
EPA officials released the documents at 10:30 p.m. ET Friday after multiple news agencies spent weeks pushing them to release the reports.
Mine owner: 'I foresaw disaster' 
The EPA has admitted the toxic spill -- which temporarily turned the Animas River a shade of yellow-orange -- occurred when one of its teams was using heavy equipment to enter the mine. Instead of beginning the process of pumping and treating the contaminated water inside the mine as planned, the team accidentally caused it to flow into the nearby Animas River.
The mine wastewater polluted the river and other waterways with extremely high levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium, beryllium and mercury. 
There are multiple ongoing investigations into how the EPA allowed the blowout to happen.
Poisons such as lead were detected in the Animas River, part of the Colorado River system. EPA officials say recent water testing shows contamination levels have fallen back down to prespill levels. However, some experts say the heavy metals have simply sunk to the bottom of the affected waterways and will likely get stirred back up again. 
The EPA has been the source of frustration for many local and state leaders who say the agency didn't act fast enough to alert people about the spill. Attorneys general in New Mexico, Utah and Colorado have suggested they may individually or collectively sue the federal government.

Now the letter titled 'EPA plan is a 'Superfund blitzkrieg' sent to the local paper published BEFORE the EPA and the contractor CAUSED the disaster.

Dozens of Hillary Clinton Emails Were Classified from the Start, U.S. Rules Suggest

Hillary Clinton's falsehoods in regards to her private email server and classified information are discredited weekly as even more information comes to light.  A few excerpts from an exclusive by Reuters..... 

Exclusive: Dozens of Clinton emails were classified from the start, U.S. rules suggest
For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids.
MSNBC Fact Checks Hillary Clinton’s False Statements About Classified Emails dated 7/27/2015
While the department is now stamping a few dozen of the publicly released emails as "Classified," it stresses this is not evidence of rule-breaking. Those stamps are new, it says, and do not mean the information was classified when Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, first sent or received it. 
But the details included in those "Classified" stamps — which include a string of dates, letters and numbers describing the nature of the classification — appear to undermine this account, a Reuters examination of the emails and the relevant regulations has found. 
The new stamps indicate that some of Clinton's emails from her time as the nation's most senior diplomat are filled with a type of information the U.S. government and the department's own regulations automatically deems classified from the get-go — regardless of whether it is already marked that way or not. 
Hillary Clinton quote from the U.N. Press Conference March 10, 2015
In the small fraction of emails made public so far, Reuters has found at least 30 email threads from 2009, representing scores of individual emails, that include what the State Department's own "Classified" stamps now identify as so-called 'foreign government information.' The U.S. government defines this as any information, written or spoken, provided in confidence to U.S. officials by their foreign counterparts. 
This sort of information, which the department says Clinton both sent and received in her emails, is the only kind that must be "presumed" classified, in part to protect national security and the integrity of diplomatic interactions, according to U.S. regulations examined by Reuters 
"It's born classified," said J. William Leonard, a former director of the U.S. government's Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO). Leonard was director of ISOO, part of the White House's National Archives and Records Administration, from 2002 until 2008, and worked for both the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.
What kind of information ?
Clinton and her senior staff routinely sent foreign government information among themselves on unsecured networks several times a month, if the State Department's markings are correct. Within the 30 email threads reviewed by Reuters, Clinton herself sent at least 17 emails that contained this sort of information. In at least one case it was to a friend, Sidney Blumenthal, not in government. 
The information appears to include privately shared comments by a prime minister, several foreign ministers and a foreign spy chief, unredacted bits of the emails show. Typically, Clinton and her staff first learned the information in private meetings, telephone calls or, less often, in email exchanges with the foreign officials. 
In an email from November 2009, the principal private secretary to David Miliband, then the British foreign secretary, indicates that he is passing on information about Afghanistan from his boss in confidence. He writes to Huma Abedin, Clinton's most senior aide, that Miliband "very much wants the Secretary (only) to see this note."

Nearly five pages of entirely redacted information follow. Abedin forwarded it on to Clinton's private email account.

Is Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King lying about his race?

A white man pretending to be a black man is caught red handed.  From CNN
(CNN) Shaun King, a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter movement, didn't mince words in his response to the allegation that he misrepresented his race and passed for black when he's actually white. 
"The reports about my race, about my past, and about the pain I've endured are all lies," wrote King, who blogs at the Daily Kos. 
"I refuse to speak in detail about the nature of my mother's past, or her sexual partners, and I am gravely embarrassed to even be saying this now, but I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man," he said.
Got it.  Shaun King refuses to offer any facts to counter the evidence against him.....
King was answering allegations made this week by websites and the Daily Beast that claimed King's father is white. 
Breibart published what it says is King's Kentucky birth certificate, listing Jeffery Wayne King as the father, but the document doesn't list his race. The Daily Beast said public records it reviewed show that King's father is Caucasian. 
Black Lives Matter -- the nationwide rallying cry of activists protesting the killing of unarmed black men by police -- is growing in the limelight and King has been at the center of it, appearing often on television talk shows and at protest sites.
Funny, given that Black Lives Matter and Shaun King gained notoriety based on the 4 Pinocchio LIE of "hands up, don't shoot" and the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.

The facts of the case are sprinkled in with 'compassion' for Shaun King by the journos at CNN

State Dept. Suddenly Discovers Thousands of Emails from Top Clinton Aide

Hillary Clinton and the State Department's cover-up of  Benghazi and  Hillary's emails took a turn for the worse today. A reasonable person can no longer believe that the State Department, the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton are merely inept.  The stonewalling, the leis and  cover-up are intentional and criminal.....

State Dept. turns up thousands of emails from top Clinton aide that previously 'did not exist'. 

After it was revealed earlier this year that Clinton, and potentially some of her aides, used personal email accounts for official business, Gawker sued the State Department over its initial request for communications between Reines and reporters. 
Gawker asserted the search must not have been exhaustive if it turned up no emails between the press and a State Department spokesman, who regularly communicated with the media.
In March, Reines said reporters would have to ask the State Department about the apparent discrepancy. 
In last week’s court filing, the State Department estimated it would begin releasing some of those emails that do not fall within an exemption on Sept. 30. It will release more every 30 days as they are reviewed. 
The agency said it does not know how many of the 17,855 are exempt from disclosure and will have to be redacted or handed over to other agencies for redaction. It said it is willing to negotiate with Gawker to narrow the scope of the request. 
The emails at issue from Reines’s official State Department account are separate from the 20 boxes of emails from his personal account that he handed over to the State Department last month, related to the controversy about Clinton’s use of a private email account and server.

Revisionist John Kasich: ‘I would never have committed’ to Iraq war

The Republican field of candidates for POTUS 2016 is crowded and filled with progressive Republicans, or RINOs for short.  Just as progressives on the left have revised history in regards to the Iraq War (a primary symptom of Bush Derangement Syndrome) RINOS have used the passage of time to also revise their stance on the now 'unpopular' war.  A classic example of this today is Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

John Kasich: ‘I would never have committed’ to Iraq war
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said on Sunday that he would not have sent U.S. troops to Iraq for a war with Saddam Hussein. 
Kasich, who spent 18 years in Congress, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that "I would never have committed" to Iraq. 
By the time of the 2002 vote, he was no longer in Congress.
Back in 2002 ....... 

The fact that John Kasich didn't have a vote on record to support the Iraq War doesn't mean that he can change history.

ISIS Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria Exposes the Obama Administration's Deceit & Failure

More bad news for Barack Obama, his administration and the Democrats today.  More events in Syria tarnish Obama's already failed foreign policy 'legacy'. A legacy of deception, appeasement, weakness and failure.

Officials confirm ISIS used mustard agent in Syria

If the origins of the mustard gas is from Syria, it is just another example of the failure of Obama's chemical weapons agreement with Syria. If the origins of the mustard gas is from Iraq, it is just another example of WMD that were in Iraq. If it was just an improvised weapon, then it highlights the fact that the Obama administration also aided ISIS to fight Assad in Syria by moving arms from Benghazi,  Libya through Turkey to their destination in Syria. This chemical weapon attack by ISIS in Syria  was bad news, especially for Obama and the Democrats.

Hillary Clinton Will Turn Over Email Server to Justice Department

Hillary Clinton isn't capable of transparency or truth-telling. Then again, Obama's Justice Department isn't capable of neutrality or seeking real justice. From
Hillary Clinton will turn over her private email server and a backup thumb drive to the Justice Department, her spokesman confirmed Tuesday. 
The news comes just hours after the Intelligence Community Inspector General told Congress that her email server contained emails that have now been classified “top secret.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released two pages of the memo sent to a handful of members of Congress that confirmed the finding. 
“This information revealed by the inspector general makes it even more important that the FBI and the State Department secure these documents,” he said.  

“To date, the two agencies most critical to securing this information have failed to assure the American people that they are taking the necessary steps to protect America’s national security interests.” 
The State Department is also looking into Clinton’s top aides to learn whether any other unclassified information is unaccounted for, McClatchy reported
“We will follow the facts wherever they lead, to include former aides and associates, as appropriate,” said Douglas Welty, a spokesman for the State Department’s inspector general.
A little bit more about the emails as excerpted from McClatchyDC:

‘Top Secret’ emails found as Clinton probe expands to key aides 
As pressure builds on Hillary Clinton to explain her official use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, she faced new complications Tuesday. It was disclosed her top aides are being drawn into a burgeoning federal inquiry and that two emails on her private account have been classified as “Top Secret.” 
The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications - more sensitive than previously known. 
The notice came as the State Department inspector general’s office acknowledged that it is reviewing the use of “personal communications hardware and software” by Clinton’s former top aides after requests from Congress. 
“We will follow the facts wherever they lead, to include former aides and associates, as appropriate,” said Douglas Welty, a spokesman for the State Department’s inspector general.
But it’s not clear that’s being done. 
Welty initially said the Intelligence Community inspector general, which had already been looking into the issue of whether classified information has been improperly shared with or by Clinton, has taken responsibility for deciding which emails to review, from whom and determining their classification. 
However, Andrea Williams, a spokeswoman for the Intelligence Community Inspector General, said that office “never had access to any emails other than those provided to the State Department by former Secretary Clinton.”

Ferguson Police Return Fire, Shoot Man on Anniversary of Michael Brown Death

The race-hustlers were in Ferguson to mark the one year anniversary of Michael Brown robbing a store, attacking a police officer and dying in the process. Michael Brown lived like a thug and died like a thug. It was no surprise that the Black Lives Matter street theater would foment more looting and violence, such as a another attack on police.

The following story is excerpted from the Washington Examiner, video by CNN 
Ferguson Police Return Fire Shoot Man on Anniversary of Michael Brown Death 
Ferguson police shot a man on Sunday after he allegedly fired on plainclothes officers in the town marking the one-year anniversary of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown’s fatal shooting. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch condemned the attack on the officers and other violence that occurred during what was supposed to be peaceful weekend commemorations in Ferguson, Missouri. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar reported that the man was in critical condition after being shot in Ferguson, Missouri. Belmar said that while uniformed officers were deployed to monitor businesses following protests and reports of looting, four plainclothes officers were tracking an individual they suspected was armed.
The man opened fire on the officers, who were in an unmarked car, according to Belmar. The gunfire struck the police vehicle several times. The officers returned fire and pursued the man on foot. The suspect — who had a stolen 9mm gun — again opened fire and the officers fired back, Belmar said. Belmar added that the police shooting took place after two separate groups in the vicinity had traded a "remarkable" amount of gunfire — between 40 and 50 shots. 
Prosecutors have charged the suspect with four counts of first-degree assault on law enforcement, five counts of armed criminal action and one count of discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle, St. Louis County Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brian Schellman said. Harris is being held on $250,000 bond. A day of peaceful vigils to mark the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's shooting death turned ugly late Sunday when protesters threw rocks and bottles at officers.

....Some gunfire rang out as reporters were talking to Ferguson's acting police chief, Andre Anderson. A startled Anderson continued speaking with a steady burst of gunfire in the background. Crowds scattered. Detectives in an unmarked SUV turned on its emergency lights and pursued the suspect, only to be shot at, according to Belmar. The bullets hit the vehicle's hood and windshield several times, Belmar said. 
As the detectives got out of the car, the suspect allegedly turned around and fired again. Then he ran toward a fenced area, where he continued firing -- until officers struck him multiple times, Belmar said. The four plainclothes officers involved in the shooting have between six to 12 years of experience, he said. They have been placed on administrative leave. Objects were thrown at police as well as some businesses being damaged, according to the St. Louis County Police Department. Three St. Louis County police officers were injured: One was struck in the face by a brick, while two others were pepper-sprayed.
as CNN reports
Harris is being held on a $250,000 bond, Schellman said. He remains in critical condition at a hospital, police said. 
Harris' aunt, Karen Harris, said her nephew attended the protests because he was friends with Brown. Recounting what other family members who were with Tyrone Harris said, the aunt said Tyrone Harris wasn't carrying a gun and never fired at police.
That's right, in the spirit of the anniversary.. .. Tyrone Harris.... he 'dindu nuffin'

Police Chief Blames Obama Admin, State Govt Policies in Murder of California Woman by Illegals

The lawless Obama adminstration has a lot of blood on its hands. From the failed gun-walking in Operation Fast and Furious to Obama's self-admitted illegal executives actions on immigration, the murder and mayhem resulting from this administration's political agendas has racked up quite a large body count.  The latest couple of murders of American citizens by illegal aliens that weren't deported because of progressive policies have drawn ever increasing attention. Illegal alien murderers and illegal executive actions are the legacy of this administration.

Excerpted from CNN:
Police Chief Blames Immigration, Crime Policies in Murder of California Woman
When a California woman died after an undocumented immigrant and another man allegedly sexually assaulted her and beat her with a hammer, a police chief wasted little time blaming top officials of his state and the United States. 
"I think it starts in Washington, D.C., with this administration that we see and their policies. I think you can draw a direct line over to Sacramento with the policies of, I'm going to say, this governor and the Legislature," Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin told reporters. "And I am not remiss to say that from Washington, D.C., to Sacramento, there's a blood trail into the bedroom of Marilyn Pharis."

Pharis was sleeping at her home just before 10 a.m. on July 24 when Victor Aureliano Martinez, 29, and Jose Fernando Villagomez, 20, allegedly broke into her home and assaulted her, Santa Maria police said in a news release. 
The victim, who worked for the Air Force as a civilian contractor, called police and when officers arrived, dogs led them to a nearby home where they found Martinez, who had allegedly broken into the home in an attempt to evade police, the statement said. Martinez, who was in the country illegally, according to Martin, was arrested without incident and charged with attempted murder, sexual assault and residential burglary, it said. 
Villagomez was arrested five days later -- on a probation violation -- and he was charged August 4 in the attack on Pharis, according to police.
Two weeks before this murder, Santa Maria police officers arrested him for possession of meth, and you know what we had to do? We had to cite him out. That's the problem with this system. This is not just in Santa Maria. This is all over the state of California and all over the United States," Martin said. 
The chief singled out California's Assembly Bill 109 -- an effort to comply with the U.S. Supreme Court's mandate to reduce the prison populations in state prisons -- and Prop 47, which makes most nonviolent drug and property crimes misdemeanors, as the reasons that Martinez was able to commit the crimes of which he's accused.
In a statement accompanying the timeline of Martinez's and Villagomez's arrests and releases, the sheriff's office said that in response to questions about the suspects' incarceration histories and immigration statuses, it was releasing the suspects' data to set the record straight. 
State law, the statement said, dictates when police can detain someone based on a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer request, while a federal court has ruled that placing someone in custody based only on an ICE detainer request may leave a local law enforcement outlet liable for violating that person's constitutional rights. 
"Based upon the constraints created by the above noted laws, it is the policy of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, that DHS/ICE must obtain a court order or arrest warrant signed by a Federal judge or magistrate, before we will continue to maintain custody of an individual who does not have local charges that require the individual to be held in our custody," the statement said 
It continued, "The impact of these two laws causes a significant legal and moral conflict for California Sheriffs when handling ICE immigration detainer requests. It is imperative that the Federal government work to remedy this conflict and provide clear guidance to California Sheriffs." 
Santa Barbara authorities have received a detainer request for Martinez, but no court order signed by a federal judge, police said in a statement. 
ICE said it "is monitoring the case closely and has lodged a formal request with the custodial law enforcement agency seeking notification in advance of his release or transfer from local custody." 
In order to deport someone, that person must have committed a "crime of moral turpitude," must have multiple criminal convictions or must be guilty of an aggravated felony, according to federal law
U.S. immigration policy relating to criminals came under new scrutiny when Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a felon who had been deported to Mexico five times, was accused of killingKate Steinle of San Francisco on July 1. Lopez-Sanchez has pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges and is being held on $5 million bail.

Progressive policies and pandering to certain demographics to win more elections is a very deadly mistake. Will the Obama administration or the very liberal state of California ever be held accountable for the failure to enforce the laws of the land ?

The Bernie Sanders' supporters and the Democrats are obviously embarrassed by the fracture in the Democratic party. The second major interruption of Bernie Sanders by the Black Lives Matter agitators in Seattle drew even more attention to the white, very liberal, well-off backers of Bernie Sanders.  The following tweet and a  false facebook post were pushed in the news comment sections by the trolls to pretend that there wasn't a rift and that the protesters that stormed the stage weren't with BLM and from out of  town.

First, the tweet was a fake and the twitter account is no longer active.  Strange?

A comment from TheHill  pushing the discredited tweet......

The other 'apology' made by BLM that never happened was started on facebook and since retracted....

The TROLLS were also quick to push the fake facebook post at TheHill to save face........

The Democratic coalition is unraveling before our eyes and will only receive a fraction of the coverage that Donald Trump is receiving even though the rift on the left is wider, deeper and isn't repairable. The Black Lives Matter  racist street theater is on full display and is a monster of the Democrat's creation.  The actions and the quotes from the protesters say a lot about the Democratic Party and the black activists in America today.  From CNN:

Ferguson Protesters Mark Anniversary - Write Officer's Name on Pig's Head

The media was caught red-handed pushing the hands up, don't shoot LIE in Ferguson last year and yet they still want to subtly resurrect the false narrative again.  The Associated Press runs with this anniversary story....

Ferguson protesters write officer's name on pig's head

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Ferguson protesters are using a roasted pig's head with a police officer's name written on it during a demonstration marking the eve of the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's shooting death. 
After a peaceful march during the day, hundreds of protesters converged outside the police department after 10 p.m. They carved and ate from the pig's head, which was placed on a concrete barrier near the building. Someone had scrawled the name "Darren Wilson" on the animal. 
Wilson wasn't charged in the Aug. 9, 2014, shooting of the black 18-year-old, whose death galvanized the "Black Lives Matter" movement and months of protests in the St. Louis suburb and beyond. 
About a dozen officers stood watch outside while many others were stationed inside police department.
First,  hands up, don't shoot was always based on a LIE and the Black Lives Matter group is based on a  4 Pinocchio LIE

Then again, the hands up don't shoot LIE was evident from the VERY beginning....

Remember the 'gentle giant' that was really a thug, a strong arm robber and aspiring cop-killer ?

Only a community of hyphenated-half-wits led by pathetic parents would seek to memorialize this thug's life and lies about this thug that caused the destruction of the city.  In memory of Michael Brown, Pants Up, Don't Loot!

Black Lives Matter Protesters Shut Down Progressive Bernie Sanders Rally

The openly marxist/communist Black Lives Matter protesters shut down the racist progressive Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders rally in the anarcho-marxist haven of Seattle. Excerpted from The Hill... 
Protesters shut down Bernie Sanders rally
Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking. 
Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.

After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.

One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.” 
CNN reports that Marissa Johnson is a co-founder of BLM in Seattle.

State Dept Watered Down Human Trafficking Report to Boost Obama Agenda

 Barack Obama's failures in the foreign policy arena are too numerous to name and have tarnished his legacy. His second term is coming to an end and he is desperate for a victory in the international arena.  Selling out America, our allies like Israel or even victims of human trafficking in numerous countries around the world are but a small price to pay for an Obama legacy 'win'.  Now to the Reuters story on Obama's State Dept. and human trafficking......
In the weeks leading up to a critical annual U.S. report on human trafficking that publicly shames the world’s worst offenders, human rights experts at the State Department concluded that trafficking conditions hadn’t improved in Malaysia and Cuba. And in China, they found, things had grown worse. 
The State Department’s senior political staff saw it differently — and they prevailed.
A Reuters examination, based on interviews with more than a dozen sources in Washington and foreign capitals, shows that the government office set up to independently grade global efforts to fight human trafficking was repeatedly overruled by senior American diplomats and pressured into inflating assessments of 14 strategically important countries in this year’s Trafficking in Persons report. 
In all, analysts in the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons - or J/TIP, as it’s known within the U.S. government — disagreed with U.S. diplomatic bureaus on ratings for 17 countries, the sources said. 
The analysts, who are specialists in assessing efforts to combat modern slavery - such as the illegal trade in humans for forced labor or prostitution - won only three of those disputes, the worst ratio in the 15-year history of the unit, according to the sources.

As a result, not only Malaysia, Cuba and China, but countries such as India, Uzbekistan and Mexico, wound up with better grades than the State Department’s human-rights experts wanted to give them, the sources said. (Graphic looking at some of the key decisions)

Of the three disputes J/TIP won, the most prominent was Thailand, which has faced scrutiny over forced labor at sea and the trafficking of Rohingya Muslims through its southern jungles. Diplomats had sought to upgrade it to so-called “Tier 2 Watch List” status. It remains on “Tier 3” - the rating for countries with the worst human-trafficking records. 
The number of rejected recommendations suggests a degree of intervention not previously known by diplomats in a report that can lead to sanctions and is the basis for many countries’ anti-trafficking policies. This year, local embassies and other constituencies within the department were able to block some of the toughest grades. 

State Department officials say the ratings are not politicized. “As is always the case, final decisions are reached only after rigorous analysis and discussion between the TIP office, relevant regional bureaus and senior State Department leaders,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in response to queries by Reuters. 
Still, by the time the report was released on July 27, Malaysia and Cuba were both removed from the "Tier 3" blacklist, even though the State Department’s own trafficking experts believed neither had made notable improvements, according to the sources.

The Malaysian upgrade, which was highly criticized by human rights groups, could smooth the way for an ambitious proposed U.S.-led free-trade deal with the Southeast Asian nation and 11 other countries. 
Ending Communist-ruled Cuba’s 12 years on the report’s blacklist came as the two nations reopened embassies on each other’s soil following their historic d├ętente over the past eight months. 
And for China, the experts’ recommendation to downgrade it to the worst ranking, Tier 3, was overruled despite the report’s conclusion that Beijing did not undertake increased anti-trafficking efforts. 
That would have put China alongside the likes of Syria and North Korea, regarded by the United Nations as among the world’s worst human right abusers.

Typically, J/TIP wins more than half of what officials call “disputes” with diplomatic sections of the State Department, according to people familiar with the process.

“Certainly we have never seen that kind of an outcome,” said one U.S. official with direct knowledge of the department.

Barack Obama's Illegal Covert War in Syria

Barack Obama and his administration's secret war against Assad in Syria will always be framed in a different light.  The coup in Libya under the guise of the 'responsibility to protect doctrine' or R2P and the resulting chaos in Libya has been a disaster for the entire middle east.  The attack on the Special Mission in Benghazi and the transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria, via Turkey, exposed Obama's secret and unconstitutional war long ago. Just as Turkey is using the war on ISIS as an opportunity to attack the Kurds, Obama is now using the war on ISIS to target Assad. 

 This RAT LINE of military arms from Libya directly and indirectly aided ISIS in Syria, a group that Obama has done little to confront and who the POTUS called the 'jayvee team'.  ISIS, a group that this administration uses to fight Assad.  Obama's ISIS army only became a problem for him when they streamed into Iraq when the POTUS withdrew our troops, thus surrendering the territory to ISIS and Iran.

The Obama administration's power under the AUMF to conduct war in Syria have been questionable from the beginning and the actions under Article 2  now are politely described as ' blurry' as the following story excerpted from TheHILL describes

White House Legal Strategy for ISIS Fight Gets Blurry
President Obama has shifted his legal rationale for justifying military force to defend Syrian rebel forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria as the prospect has increased that they could come into conflict with Syria’s government.

The administration had been using a 2001 authorization approved by Congress after the Sept. 11 attacks to justify air strikes against ISIS.

But the administration now says it will also rely on Article II of the Constitution as the legal backing for air strikes against Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s forces if Assad attacks the rebel groups.

“If Syrian government forces attack the Syrian fighters we have trained and equipped while they were engaging ISIL, the President would have the authority under Article II of the Constitution to defend those fighters,” a senior administration official told The Hill, using another acronym to describe ISIS.

The legal shift comes as the Syrian rebels are beginning to deploy back into Syria from their training sites.

This is raising the prospect that they will come into conflict with Assad’s forces, prompting the need for a U.S. response.

And the U.S. is not only protecting the rebels they've vetted and trained, but the entire groups that they were recruited from and return to — many of which the U.S. has not vetted.

In fact, a U.S. official said, the U.S.-led coalition already is providing those groups with air support against ISIS – even though they do not yet have U.S.-trained rebels embedded with them.
The diplomatic official said some of the groups may target Assad — which would bring the U.S. closer to war with the regime.

Already, things have not gone as planned. Although the rebels were trained to fight ISIS, the first rebels to return almost immediately came under attack by al Nusra — an al Qaeda affiliated group, prompting coalition airstrikes. 
The administration maintains the U.S. can defend the rebels from al Nusra — al Qaeda's affiliate in Syria — using the 2001 AUMF.

So far, there has been no conflict with Syrian forces.
Both the expansion of the fight, and the shifting rational for its legality has drawn criticism from Congress.
Legal scholars said using Article II to justify defensive actions as protecting the rebel groups from Assad is a stretch.
“That means nothing. That’s pretty bad when you have to cite Article II…You have to be more specific than that,” said Louis Fisher, scholar in residence at the Constitution Project and former Congressional Research Service researcher.

He and other legal experts say Article II has been interpreted to allow a president to “repel sudden attack” against U.S. troops, the U.S.mainland, and its interests.

Using it to defend Syrian rebels would not fit under that previous interpretation, he said.
“Invoking Article II is question-begging,” agreed Stephen Vladeck, law professor at American University.

Vladeck said Article II has also been interpreted to allow the U.S. to defend its “assets.”
However, he said “by that logic any person or piece of military equipment used by anyone on a side of a conflict with which we agree is all of a sudden covered by Article II. And that cannot be right.” 
As recently as last month, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, the incoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the U.S. did not have the authority to conduct airstrikes against the Syrian regime. 
“My understanding is that we don't have the legal authority at this time to go after the Assad regime. And it's also the policy of the administration not to go after the Assad regime militarily,” he said at a hearing on July 7. 
The administration now is saying it will conduct “offensive” strikes against ISIS that would be justified by the 2001 AUMF, use the same AUMF to justify “defensive” strikes against al Nusra, and use Article II to justify “defensive” strikes to defend the rebels against the regime.
Some lawmakers are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the blurred lines, one year after the airstrikes against ISIS first began.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama and his administration has wanted to directly attack Assad for years and only when they sought political cover by involving Congress at the last minute was this averted. The reasons for opposing Obama's 'intervention' in Syria were numerous and the public opposed his actions as well. 

The Obama administration has never been honest about Syria. In fact, they have always lied about Syria at every opportunity. The claims that the Assad regime solely using chemical weapons against the Syrian people and was a cause for war or Obama and his administration claiming they destroyed Assad's chemical weapons arsenal and enforced the chemical weapons treaty are lies. Further 'blurring' the lines of Constitutional power really isn't a problem for this corrupt and dishonest administration.

President Bill Clinton Orders Military Strikes Against Iraq's WMD Programs in 1998

A few years before President George W. Bush sought the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 , the Democrat President Bill Clinton was attacking Iraq because of their WMD programs.

Excerpted from
On December 16, 1998, President Bill Clinton announced that he has ordered air strikes against Iraq because it refused to cooperate with United Nations (U.N.) weapons inspectors. Clinton’s decision did not have the support of key members of Congress, who accused Clinton of using the air strikes to direct attention away from ongoing impeachment proceedings against him. Just the day before, the House of Representatives had issued a report accusing Clinton of committing “high crimes and misdemeanors” related to the Monica Lewinsky scandal, in which Clinton had–and then lied about–an illicit sexual liaison with an intern in the Oval Office. 
At the time of the air strikes, Iraq was continuing its attempts to build weapons of mass destruction including nuclear, chemical and biological agents. Fearful of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s belligerence, and his penchant for using those weapons against his own people, the U.N. sent in weapons inspectors in 1997. After repeatedly refusing the inspectors access to certain sites, Clinton resorted to air strikes to compel Hussein to cooperate.
Ultimately, the American public’s attention, and that of the press, stayed fixated on Clinton and his battle to save his presidency. Both the air strikes and the impeachment threat proved anti-climactic. Clinton was acquitted by the Senate in February 1999 and the air strikes on Iraq failed to intimidate Hussein into allowing weapons inspectors full access to Iraq’s weapons facilities.

Democrat Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane Criminally Charged

It took quite a long time to finally bring charges against Kathleen Kane. Her wrong-doing made headlines at in early January 2015
Grand jury recommends criminal charges against Kane

Fast forward to August 6, 2015 at
Montgomery County DA charges Attorney General Kane
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was charged Thursday with illegally leaking confidential information, then lying about it under oath and deploying aides as spies to keep a step ahead of the criminal investigation against her. 
While not unexpected, the criminal charges filed by Montgomery County District Risa Vetri Ferman dealt a stunning blow to a woman who swept into office in a landslide with a promise to shake up the status quo. 
Gov. Wolf, a Democrat like Kane, immediately called for her resignation. Kane said she would not quit. 

"A resignation would be an admission of guilt and I'm not guilty," she said in a statement.
Kane stood defiant and increasingly isolated after Ferman unveiled new evidence to buttress a grand jury's finding that Kane had illegally planted a damaging newspaper story to damage a critic, then perjured herself when questioned about the scheme. 
And Ferman also added a new allegation: illegal surveillance of e-mails.
Patrick Reese, a former small-town police chief and the head of Kane's personal security detail, was charged Thursday with the illegal spying. 
In a 42-page affidavit of probable cause, Ferman painted a deeply negative portrait of Kane as a Nixonian figure bent on political revenge, angry at her staff and eager to spy on judges, reporters, prosecutors and her own aides. 
"This is war," Kane declared in an e-mail cited in the affidavit. Those words were written early on as she prepared to plant a negative news story designed to damage a former state prosecutor she viewed as an enemy. 
Kane also went to great lengths to impede the grand jury investigation of her conduct, prosecutors said. At one point, they said, she threatened to fire top staffers in her office if they didn't join her in fighting back. 
"If I get taken out of here in handcuffs, what do you think my last act would be?" the affidavit quoted her as telling her chief of staff, meaning that she would fire him and others. 
The charges - one felony court of perjury and seven misdemeanors, including official oppression and obstruction - could doom a political career that was once on a steep ascent.
Kane, 49, the first Democrat and woman to be elected attorney general, is now at odds with the state's top Democrat, Wolf. He said Thursday: 
"I am calling on her to step aside, step down as attorney general, because I think she cannot do what she has to do as the top law enforcement officer in Pennsylvania while she's facing these serious charges." 
State Rep. Frank Dermody, who leads the Democrats in the GOP-controlled state House, also suggested she step down. 
"The charges will make it extremely difficult for her to lead the Office of Attorney General under these circumstances," Dermody, of the Pittsburgh area, said in a statement. "This is not good for that office or for the Commonwealth." 
Kane is the first attorney general to be charged with a crime since Ernest Preate Jr., a Republican, pleaded guilty to a corruption charge in 1995 and resigned. 
The criminal charges against Kane come nearly nine months after a grand jury first recommended to Ferman that Kane be arrested. The statewide grand jury met in Norristown, the county seat of Montgomery County, and thus made its referral to Ferman, the county district attorney.

5th Investigative Video Released-Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts, Intact 'Fetuses'

The investigation into Planned Parenthood's practice of illegally selling baby parts and intact specimens, unethically altering the abortion procedure and using partial birth abortion to maximize revenue has been fully exposed by the Center for Medical Progress's 5th video that was just released today. 

The words of the executives, physicians and technicians as well as this flyer should remove ANY doubt of illegal activity.  First, examine the flyer from Stem Express ....

So it is financially profitable. How profitable ?
Farrell finally summarizes her affiliate’s approach to fetal tissue payments: “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.”

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).

Farrell also indicates to the investigators over lunch that the specimen sales from her department contribute significantly to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s overall finances: “I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States. Larger than any the other affiliates’ combined.” In a Texas Senate hearing on July 29, former Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast clinic director Abby Johnson estimated that the affiliate had previously made up to $120,000 per month off of aborted fetal tissue.
