NRA Sends Intimidating Letter - Warns of Hostilty

Basically, the NRA is demanding an answer with threat.

Think we should respond! The letter, signed by Scott Jones (with his email), names Daniel.Augustine (with his email) - demands an answer from the candidate - with inferences of presumption of hostility.

Coming from a GUN organization - Shheesshh!


Middle School student heroism will make you weep


...For those of you who may not have Twitter, ...

Adult asks the child if they are doing drills, in school, concerning alarms of a shooter danger.

The black male child responds yes; and he informs the adult that they cover windows, lock doors and he, along with a few select others, push the heavy teachers desk against the door.

He informs the adult ...the class gets behind him & his friends.

Alarmed and angry it may be a racial thing, the adult asks the child - "Why you"???

....The child responds that he would rather be the one who gives his life, so that his friends & classmates may live

Romney's running...and running....and..

R U N N I N G........

Mitt has made it - official - he is running for as candidate for United States Senator of Utah.

We can't stop him in Utah; but we have helped stop his wannabe POTUS - thrice (which - 2020 - is where everyone knows this is going).


The real story is Mitt Romney is a Racketeer and he belongs in jail; and I've never stopped trying to put him there.

This is the question I posted, over a year ago..


Trump to sign sexual assault bill in event closed to the press

Source: The HILL

President Trump on Wednesday will sign legislation that strengthens the requirements to report sexual abuse, a bill quickly passed by Congress after the slew of allegations against ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

The bill signing is closed to the press, according the president's schedule, and comes as the White House faces scrutiny over its handling of claims of domestic abuse.

The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), was introduced in 2017 but received a renewed push after the publicity surrounding the Nassar case, in which more than 150 women testified that the doctor sexually abused them when they sought treatment.

He was sentenced last month to up to 175 years in prison

Latest: Agreement reached to relocate evicted homeless

Source: AP via Yahoo News

After a long court hearing, public officials and homeless advocates have reached an agreement on providing for homeless people who are being evicted from an encampment in a Southern California riverbed.

Orange County officials say they will provide as many as 400 vouchers for monthlong stays in motels and find hundreds more beds where people to stay while social workers seek to help them find permanent housing. The sides agreed that the encampment would be allowed to remain for another week while the homeless are relocated.

U.S. District Judge David O. Carter has temporarily blocked the county from arresting tent-dwellers solely for refusing to move.

The lawsuit is being watched by homeless advocates in West Coast cities and elsewhere amid a rise in homelessness and growth of encampments.

Unfortunately, its not an easy thing to address.

There also are people who just want to be free from rules of society. And there are veterans traumatized that are not able to cope with the rules of engaging society. Or those mentally, physically ill.

I went from having 1000 employees, to being broke and without a home, due to circumstances extraordinary; and I understand how people can get backed into a corner.

Then, I wish, that we could trade the Trump family and his misogynist or pedo buddies, over for Syrian homeless

Wishing they would go away, doesn't solve the problem.

Statement A.G. Schneiderman On Federal Court Ruling Granting Preliminary Injunction in DACA case

Source: New York AG Official Statement

Today, a federal judge granted Attorney General Schneiderman and his fellow Attorneys Generalís motion for a preliminary injunction to block President Trumpís rescission of DACA. Attorney General Schneiderman leads the coalition of 17 AGs that sued in September 2017 to defend DACA and protect DREAMers. The court heard arguments on Attorney General Schneidermanís motion for preliminary injunction on January 30th, 2018.

Attorney General Schneiderman released the following statement:

ďFederal courts from coast to coast have now reviewed the record and reached the same conclusion: President Trumpís decision to rescind DACA was illegal.

Todayís federal court ruling is a victory for the over 42,000 New York Dreamers and more than 700,000 Dreamers across the country. There is much more work ahead to permanently preserve DACA and protect the millions of American families, businesses, hospitals, and universities that depend on Dreamers every day to succeed, but today is an important step forward in that fight.

Todayís ruling reflects not only the illegality of the Trump Administrationís move to rescind DACA, but also the clear and demonstrable benefits DACA provides to New Yorkers across our great state.

I am proud to lead a coalition of 17 state attorneys general who have been fighting in court since September to protect Dreamers and preserve this vital program.

BuzzFeed suing DNC over info tied to Trump dossier

Source: The HILL

BuzzFeed is suing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to get the committee to turn over information related to the so-called Steele dossier in an effort to bolster its defense in a lawsuit related to the dossier

BuzzFeed is arguing that the DNC has information that could link Gubarev to the 2016 Russian hack into the committee's servers, which would undermine his libel complaint.

ďAs part of the discovery process, BuzzFeed is attempting to verify claims in the dossier that relate to the hacking of the DNC ó which, the dossier alleges, was done with the support of Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian businessman," BuzzFeed News spokesman Matt Mittenthal told The Hill in a statement.

Benjamin Netanyahu faces possible indictment in Israel bribery probe

Source: International.Financial Review

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be charged with corruption over his relationship with casino billionaire James Packer and American-Israeli movie producer Arnon Milchan, Israeli police said.

Now deep in a cloud of uncertainty over his political future, the right-wing leader will await a final decision by Israel's attorney-general on whether he will face charges, a process that could take weeks or even months.

The recommendations, which police made public on Tuesday night (Wednesday AEDT), were at the more serious end of the range of charges that had been expected to be levelled against Netanyahu, now in his fourth term. The investigations have gone on for more than a year.

The Israeli attorney general will have to decide whether to indict Mr Netanyahu and what charges he could face. Israeli media reported that Mr Netanyahu was under pressure to step down. The veteran political leader said the investigation is a political witch hunt designed to force him from power and denied he had done anything wrong.
