380 Sheriffs Join with US Citizens to Urge Congress to Secure the Border and Build the Wall

US: 380 sheriffs from 40 states are calling on Congress to quit stalling and take action on building President Trump’s proposed border wall and securing America’s southern border. Sheriff Thomas Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts, who is leading the coalition, took aim at sanctuary policies, which he said make it almost impossible for America’s sheriffs to protect legal residents. -GEG

380 sheriffs from 40 states are calling on Congress to take action on building President Trump’s proposed border wall and securing America’s southern border.

“Without border security and immigration reform, more Americans will continue to be victims of crime. Now is the time to act,” said a letter signed by the sheriffs.

Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who’s leading the push, explained on “Your World” that Congress’ inaction on illegal immigration is impacting law enforcement’s ability to keep their communities safe.

He particularly took aim at sanctuary policies, which he said undermine cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement, making it harder for America’s sheriffs to protect citizens and legal residents.

AG Jeff Sessions Taps an Obama Federal Prosecutor to Investigate Abuses of Obama Administration

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed US Attorney, John Huber, to investigate abuses by the FBI and DOJ during the Obama administration. The issues to be investigated are the FBI abuse of FISA surveillance rules to damage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Uranium-One deal that gave Russia control over 20% of US uranium supplies. Obama first appointed Huber to his administration in 2015.  [The chances of Huber finding any serious crimes committed by any member of the Obama administration are between zero and none. Once again, President Trump’s supporters must find a reasonable excuse for an unreasonable appointment.] -GEG

On Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he will not be appointing a second special counsel to investigate crimes committed by Obama’s FBI and DOJ.

Rather, AG Sessions revealed U.S. Attorney John Huber will be the ‘top federal prosecutor’ who will be investigating the abuses.

The Hill reports:

CNN first reported Thursday that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program against a former Trump campaign adviser.

Huber has also been looking at whether the FBI should have more thoroughly probed Hillary Clinton‘s ties to Uranium One, a Russian nuclear energy agency.

U.S. Attorney John Huber was first appointed to his position by Barack Obama in 2015.

Huber turned in his resignation after Trump won the presidential election, however; Trump named him interim attorney for Utah and put him on a list of U.S. appointees, reported the Washington Times.

Although Huber was reappointed by President Trump with the backing of Republican Senators, it’s still unsettling that at one point he was Obama’s pick.

“He [John Huber] has been involved in the highest profile cases and coordinated task forces on everything from counterterrorism to violent crime. He has been recognized at the highest levels in the Department of Justice for his performance,” Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said in a statement, the Deseret News reported.

Top conservative voices expressed their disappointment with Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to forgo a second special counsel.

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said in a tweet: “So the Obama DOJ can open a legally questionable investigation into the Trump campaign—allegedly based on a campaign volunteer mouthing off at a London bar—but this DOJ can’t appoint a second special counsel after all the troubling documents we’ve seen? Disappointing.”

Gun-Control Activists Use March for Our Lives to register 5,000 New Voters

Gun-control activists at the March for Our Lives partnered with HeadCount, a supposedly non-partisan group, and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies in thirty cities across the US.  HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein says they registered more people to vote than on any other day in its 15-year history.  On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.

The gun control activists behind Saturday’s March for Our Lives rally enlisted the help of several voter registration organizations with the aim of getting people to vote in favor of limiting Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

HeadCount, a 501(c)3 and 4945(f) organization that bills itself as a nonpartisan group that “promotes participation in democracy” partnered with the March for Our Lives and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies throughout the U.S. in 30 cities.

A post on the group’s Facebook page announced that the organization registered “4,800 new voters” in one day at the March for Our Lives.

HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein said that with the help of nearly 2,000 volunteers who canvassed at Saturday’s march, his organization registered more people to vote Saturday than any other day in its 15-year history.

“This is the first time we’ve ever done a march,” Bernstein told BuzzFeed News.

The voter registration numbers from HeadCount do not include online voter registration and the number of voters registered through other voter registration organizations, according to HeadCount spokesperson Aaron Ghitelman.

Although the organization mostly focused on registering voters at concerts and music events before the March for Our Lives, the father of one of the gun control student activists at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School convinced the organization to partner with the anti-gun march.

Ghitelman told CNN that the father of Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist Cameron Kasky got in touch with the organization to get the group to register voters at the March for Our Lives.

Ghitelman told Breitbart News that HeadCount decided to show up at the march because when there is such a “groundswell of energy that people ask us to come [to their event], we show up.”

After the march, the organization announced that it would focus on getting high school students registered to vote. On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.

Tent City in Downtown Los Angeles Is an Omen for the Rest of America

Katie Hopkins visited Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles and discovered two or three-thousand people living in tents that were flooded with human waste, garbage. and rats. She foresees an imminent human health hazard comparable to the Bubonic Plague due to the filth. She attributes the problems to dependence on the state and a collectivist culture that rejects personal accountability for one’s own life.
