In The News / NYDems take tuition $ from kids
« on: April 12, 2019, 09:33:11 AM »
of deceased/disabled vets, gives to illegals

hmmm.  you might ask....'What is wrong with these people'

There's nothing Dems won't do for illegals, at the expense of American citizens.



New York Assembly Democrats on Tuesday blocked a bill that proposed expanding college tuition aid for children of deceased and disabled military veterans after-- having a week earlier-- approved a state budget that set aside $27 million in college tuition aid for illegal immigrants.
 The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 on Tuesday to shelve the bill, effectively quashing its chances of going to the floor, the Post-Standard reported.
 The decision came after committee chair Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, and Speaker Carl Heastie said $27 million from the state’s budget would go towards supporting the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act, which allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state aid for higher education, Newsweek reported.


 Glick said any expansion of college tuition aid to Gold Star families was not within the state's budget and pointed to an already-existing program that provides $2.7 million to 145 students who are dependents of vets who served in combat zones, the New York Post reported.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said State Sen. Robert Ortt, R-Niagara. “We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

Of ‘High Value’ Data, Pleads Guilty To Lesser Charges
https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/05/senator-hassan-aid-data-theft/

and to be quite honest...Hassan doesn't look like one of the brighter crayons in the box either.   I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't know about all this as it was going on. THAT, my friends, is the character of the demo'rat party today.   Oh don't get me wrong....the repugs are only slightly better... But for just plain traitorous/destroy America plans and actions..you can't beat the demo'rats.





Media completely ignoring this story.   Double Standard..in media, in the courts.

Via Daily Caller:


A former IT aide to New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan mounted an “extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme” against the office, the culprit’s plea agreement states.

The plot included the installation of tiny “keylogging” devices that picked up every keystroke. Between July and October 2018, former IT aide Jackson Cosko worked with an unnamed accomplice, a then-current Hassan employee, who repeatedly lent him a key that he used to enter the office at night and who allegedly tried to destroy evidence for him.

Cosko accepted responsibility for the events revealed by federal prosecutors in court Friday.

A statement of facts that Cosko agreed to says that from July to October 2018, he “engaged in an extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme, copying entire network drives, sorting and organizing sensitive data, and exploring ways to use that data to his benefit,” arranging it into folders such as “high value.”

The theft occurred after Cosko was fired from Hassan’s office in May 2018 for undisclosed reasons, then hired by Democratic Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, giving him access to the House computer network. (RELATED: Suspect In Kavanaugh Doxxing Downloaded ‘More Information Than Originally Understood)

“The defendant gained access to Senator Hassan’s Office by unlawfully obtaining keys from a staffer who was (at the time) still employed in the Office” and using it to repeatedly burglarize the office. He placed small, unobtrusive devices on at least six Senate computers that captured every keystroke, including usernames and passwords which he would then use to access further documents.

He repeatedly sneaked into her office late at night and gathered dozens of gigabytes of data including:

dozens of usernames and passwords belonging to Senate employees
 tens of thousands of emails and internal documents
 credit card information belonging to Senate employees
 social security numbers belonging to Senate employees
 personally identifying information belonging to hundreds of other persons (presumably constituents)
 private phone numbers and home addresses of senators

In October 2018, he used information stolen from Hassan’s office to doxx Republican Utah Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee as well as Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul later called for punishing the then-unknown offender. Cosko then doxxed Paul and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “The defendant published that information maliciously, with the intent to intimidate the Senators,” the plea agreement says.

NEW YORK STATE cuts SPECIAL OLYMPICS FUNDING and is giving the $ saved in salary increase for NY legislators.

Hello?  HELLO PEPSI?? HELLO???

New York is cutting Special Olympics funding & giving lawmakers a raise of the amount



More from the Daily Caller:

New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year. Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.

State lawmakers received their first pay raise since 1999 in January, earning $110,000 from $79,500. Under the budget, legislators will eventually earn $130,000 in 2021.


 The plan also raised the salary of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo by $70,000 to a quarter million dollars a year, the highest of any governor.



AOC repeatedly attacked the Trump admin last week when it cut funding to the Special Olympics

Now Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funding to the Special Olympics and giving lawmakers a raise

AOC is silent

Her office has not responded to multiple requests for comment

The Trump Administration / President Trump donates Quarterly salary
« on: March 18, 2019, 11:00:43 PM »
To Department Of Homeland Security.   President Obama used to do that!!  OH WAIT>>>>NO HE DI"NT.    LOLOLOLOL     

He can’t specifically donate it for the wall but they can certainly use it for it.

Via Washington Examiner:


President Trump said Monday he would donate $100,000 of his annual pay to the Department of Homeland Security, writing there would be “hell to pay” from reporters if he did not.

The department is charged with carrying out Trump’s policies on immigration and border security, and the department’s funding was central to a 35-day partial government shutdown that ended in January. During the shutdown, agency employees weren’t paid on time as Trump sought to convince Congress to provide billions of dollars in funds for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

He added: “If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”

Religious Bigotry / Nigerian Christians slaughterd by muslims..
« on: March 18, 2019, 02:02:23 PM »
Us Media and US Left ignore it.   But they're all over that NZ rare attack on mosques. 



Nigerian Muslims slaughter 120 Christians in three weeks, but the MSM refuses to cover it…


On Saturday it was reported that Fulani Muslims in Nigeria had massacred horrific numbers of Christians in just three weeks. And yet the only thing the media seems to care about is Muslims getting gunned down in mosques in New Zealand.


First, here’s the latest report on these Christian massacres in Nigeria via Breitbart:



The recent death toll of Christians in Nigeria has reached 120 with this week’s slaughter of more than 50 by Fulani Muslim militants in the Kaduna state of Nigeria, the Christian Post reported.


The Fulani jihadists, who have become a greater threat to Nigerian Christians than the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, stormed the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area last Monday, destroying 143 homes, killing 52 people, and wounding dozens more.


The assailants reportedly split into three groups, the first of which fired upon the people, the second set fire to buildings, and the third chased down people fleeing from the scene. Victims of the assault included women and children.


Monday’s incident followed an attack the day before in the Ungwan Barde village in Kajuru, where 17 Christians were killed and dozens of homes were burned.


In the first week of March, Muslim extremists massacred more than 30 Christians in Karamar village, setting fire to several houses and a church. The terrorists reportedly shot at families trying to escape the fire, killing 32.


The spate of recent attacks against communities has taken place within the predominantly Christian Adara chiefdom of southern Kaduna.


We’ve been reporting on these Fulani Muslim massacres for years. Last July Nigeria was said to be the deadliest place in the world, with 238 people slaughtered in one Christian village.






You’d think the recent spate of Christian killings would get at least some coverage in the media, but they haven’t, according to Breitbart:



The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.


The news shows from the three major television channels did not mention the story, and nor did CNN or MSNBC.


The massacre of Christians in Nigeria is certainly not new, as we’ve been covering them for almost a decade now. But even so, you’d think that 52 Christians being slaughtered last week would have moved the needle in the media.


The last time I remember Nigeria getting a lot of attention in the media was when Boko Haram kidnapped over 250 school girls in 2014. Remember Michelle Obama’s infamous #hastag activism?


The horrific Muslim killings in New Zealand most certainly deserved international attention. But Christians being slaughtered by Muslims in Nigeria deserve at least some attention as well, because what’s happening there has made Nigeria one of the worst places for Christians in the world.

First man Recognized As ‘Nonbinary’ In US Regrets Taking Hormones, Warns Against Trans ‘Sham’


Media wouldn’t be covering this one…

Via Christian Post:


The first man in the United States to be legally recognized as “nonbinary” now says it was a “sham,” and notes that mainstream media and LGBT organizations treat him as though he does not exist.

 In a Monday article in the Daily Signal, Jamie Shupe, a man who recently desisted back to his biological sex, explained that four years ago he wrote about his decision to live “authentically” as the woman he said he always had been in The New York Times. Three years ago, he asserted he was nonbinary — neither male nor female — and was allowed to identify as such by the state of Oregon. He was the first person in the United States where a “third” sex was formally designated on his legal documents.

“Now, I want to live again as the man that I am,” Shupe wrote Monday, elaborating that while he took hormones and participated in “medical transgenderism” for several years, he never had surgery to remove his genitals and today considers himself lucky.

“But that’s not to say I got off scot-free. My psyche is eternally scarred, and I’ve got a host of health issues from the grand medical experiment,” he said.

 Shupe went on to detail how the transgender community billed life as the opposite sex as wonderful and fulfilling when in fact it only made him more miserable. His confusion was compounded by medical professionals who now write letters saying their gender-confused patients were essentially born in the wrong body, a notion government agencies and courts of law have validated.

Column: Operation Varsity Blues and the hypocrisy of Hollywood liberals

https://freebeacon.com/columns/our-bankrupt-elite/


BY:  Matthew Continetti
March 15, 2019 5:00 am

Every element of the college admissions scandal, aka "Operation Varsity Blues," is fascinating.

There are the players: the Yale dad who, implicated in a securities fraud case, tipped the feds off to the caper; a shady high school counselor turned admissions consultant; the 36-year-old Harvard grad who sold his talents for standardized testing to the highest bidder; the comely actresses from Full House and Desperate Housewives; the fashion designer; the casino magnate. Who would have thought that one of the major headlines of 2019 would be "Lori Loughlin released on bond"?

There are the children: the social media influencer (yes this is a thing) who was told of her parents' arrest while vacationing on the yacht of a USC trustee; the mom who submitted doctored photographs to USC to portray her son as a championship pole-vaulter; the place kicker for a high school with no football team; and the rap artist from the Upper East Side who defended his mom and dad to the press while smoking a blunt.

There are the means: paying tens of thousands of dollars to Rick Singer, Trinity '86, who bribed athletic directors and coaches, doctored student résumés, and arranged for clients to take college admittance exams alongside a "proctor" who answered the questions for them. The icing on the cake: Some payments were made to a charitable foundation so the parents could get the tax write-off. What a country.


There is the objective: placement at a high-profile school. Why? Social signaling, status games, but also because the wage premium for a college degree has become so large that parents are apparently willing to break federal law to earn it. Not for what the students learn at college—they hardly learn anything. Loughlin's daughter, the influencer, spoke for most undergraduates when she said, "I do want the experience of game days, partying—I don't really care about school, as you guys all know." Oh, we know. Otherwise your mom wouldn't be looking for a defense attorney.

It's not what happens in class that matters. The university has long been corrupted by athletics, politicization of the curriculum, identity politics, grade inflation, affirmative action, the death of the humanities, and ideological bias among faculty. What matters is the chit you receive at graduation.

Finally, there are the lessons to be drawn from this story. It's the media's vocation, drawing lessons. I've heard it said that the parents ought to have been concerned about the lesson they were teaching their children—though right now I'd wager they are more concerned with avoiding jail time. Others say this is the latest example of the falsity of meritocracy. For progressives, the affair reveals the classism and racism of our society, its rampant white privilege.

Which is a funny thing to say about the academic world. Colleges exert tremendous energy to be as diverse and inclusive and woke as possible, to the point where Asian-American students are discriminated against lest they ruin the schemes of college admissions officers. A scandal over which the media seems far less upset.

Lessons? Here are two. First the good news: We are shocked by the actions of these parents precisely because there is so little corruption in America. If the problems were as systemic as some on the Internet believe, they would hardly raise such an outcry. Denizens of countries where bribery is a way of life look at us and say, "Amateurs."

The second lesson is not as comforting. Operation Varsity Blues is further evidence of the bankruptcy of American elites. For over a decade now, the legitimacy of elites in politics, foreign policy, central banking, journalism, religion, and economics has crumbled as reality failed to match their rhetoric. Education is the latest sphere where elites have betrayed our country's institutions and our country's people by using wealth and connections to rig the rules of the game.

The scandal also points to the flagrant hypocrisy of Hollywood liberalism. No class is more moralistic, more hectoring, more obnoxiously activist than the Hollywood left. They barrage Americans with displays of their virtue, their calls to humanitarianism, their paeans to multiculturalism and feminism, their slanders of President Trump, Vice President Pence, Republicans in general, and conservatives in particular. And they have great sway in national politics. A Democrat's future depends on the beneficence of Hollywood donors—donors who were well represented among the individuals charged in Operation Varsity Blues.

The entertainment industry liberals talk a good game. But look at their actions. Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey are synonymous with predation. Jussie Smollett was a B-list celebrity until he faked a hate crime against himself and blamed it on supporters of Trump. Now we have actors breaking the law so their kids can go to USC.

Why on Earth should we take political cues from these people? By what right do they portray themselves as enlightened, as advanced, as more sophisticated than half the country, even while they lie, cheat, steal, and assault? Plenty of baddies doing nasty things understand that donations to the Democratic Party and its interest groups insulate them from scrutiny and criticism—right until the moment they go to jail. These people aren't interested in the common good. They are interested in themselves.

"Devoid of all collective attachment except membership in its own club," writes Christophe Guilluy in Twilight of the Elites (2019), "the new bourgeoisie merrily surfs the surging waves of the market, reinforcing its class position, capturing the economic benefits of globalization, and building up a portfolio of real estate holdings that soon will rival that of the old bourgeoisie." Guilluy is describing contemporary France. He might as well be talking about Aunt Becky.

Electronic Surveillance / Damning evidence the FIB likely withheld
« on: March 14, 2019, 05:52:50 PM »
in Russian probe .  and you know they did.



If president Trump declassifies evidence in the Russia investigation, Carter Page’s summer bike ride to a Virginia farm and George Papadopoulos’s hasty academic jaunt to London may emerge as linchpin proof of FBI surveillance abuses during the 2016 election.

 The two trips have received scant attention. But growing evidence suggests both Trump campaign advisers made exculpatory statements — at the very start of the FBI’s investigation — that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion theory peddled to agents by Democratic sources.

 The FBI plowed ahead anyway with an unprecedented intrusion into a presidential campaign, while keeping evidence of the two men’s innocence from the courts.
