Despite Ramos’ record of nearly a decade of harassing the journalists, long before Trump ever ran for office, many in the mainstream media are blaming Trump for the murders. By blaming the President before all the facts are known, the leftist media is inciting more hatred. Coincidentally, just days before the massacre, there was a mass shooter drill by the police and fire department that was covered by the Capital Gazette.
In April, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a “zero-tolerance” policy for illegal entry and all aliens caught entering the country illegally would be held for prosecution instead of “catch and release” that allows the aliens to stay in the US while awaiting a hearing that they often ignore.
New video shows officers waiting in a hallway during the Las Vegas shooting while the event was happening. Attorney Catherine Lombardo says that a Mandalay Bay security officer gave testimony to the FBI on nine occasions that he was on the 32nd floor with Officer Hendricks during the shooting, but the video shows Officer Hendricks on the 31st floor, in yet another discrepancy in the official narrative.
Federal officers in riot gear reopened the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building that protesters shut down 11 days ago. Law enforcement began driving out demonstrators at 5:30 am and detained at least 9 protesters who refused to cooperate. Police did not remove all the protesters, merely those occupying federal property.
Nearly 600 people were arrested at a protest organized by the Women’s March in opposition to the separation of migrant families and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Many protesters in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building wore foil blankets similar to those given to migrants housed at US detention facilities. Protests are expected to spread across the country over the weekend.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Crowley for being white and male, in a classic Marxist strategy of pitting groups against each other. She won by promising free college, Medicare-for-all, a federal jobs guarantee, opening our prisons and abolishing ICE. Transferring all the money from those who work to those who don’t work may force more people to wake up.
The Supreme ruled that mandatory union dues for people who work in the public sector violate workers’ right to free speech, as it compels them to subsidize speech and political action that they may strongly oppose. Unions will be left to convince workers to join and pay dues voluntarily. Thomas Jefferson said, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
Houston, Texas: A sergeant with the Harris County Sheriff Department was treated for exposure to fentanyl from a flyer on her car’s windshield. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid medication that is similar to morphine, but it’s about 50 to 100 times more potent, and can be lethal even in small doses, and can be absorbed through the skin.
If President Trump is able to get a Constitutional conservative judge approved, it will reshape the Supreme Court for decades. He will need all Republican senators, including RINOs, to vote for this candidate to reach the 51% majority needed for approval. Abortion could be a key issue; if Roe vs Wade is overturned, authority over abortion would be handed back to the states.
The Association for Library Service to Children just renamed its Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award because, apparently, the books promote racism and sexism. Melissa Francis, who hosts a business show on Fox News, played a character on the Little House on the Prairie TV show in the 1970s and said that the leftist librarians did not read the books. History should be preserved so that we can understand our past mistakes and the strengths of our founding.
US District Judge William Alsup shut down a lawsuit filed by liberal mayors in Oakland and San Francisco who sued big oil companies for their alleged impact on climate, claiming damages included sea level rise that has yet to materialize, but is on the way, according the models cited in the litigation. The judge explained that it would be unfair to blame oil companies who supplied the oil to the public benefitted from it and demanded it.

None of the suspects speaks English and it is unknown whether they are US citizens.
