"More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living as here illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday.
Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive — both steps that other visitors would normally have to go through."

Was the real Russian collusion the Uranium One deal? - NetRight Daily
"Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is calling upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions to assist him in ridding the federal government of the corruption the Obama Administration perpetuated.
Image result for Russian state-owned corporation U.S. uranium millions to the Clinton Foundation.After recent news stories surfaced highlighting an ethically questionable business deal which gave the Russian nuclear industry significant control over the U.S. uranium supply, Grassley wants Sessions to allow an FBI informant alleging that a Justice Department prosecution of a Russian company engaged in bribery was slowed down to grease the wheels of the Uranium One deal.
In a breaking news story this week published in The Hill this week, John Solomon and Alison Spann explain, “Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.”
The deal allowed a Russian state-owned corporation to acquire 20 percent of the U.S. uranium supply — and funneled millions to the Clinton Foundation.

After Stalling for Two Years, CBP Returns Truck It Stole at the Border - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Image result for civil forfeiture casesAfter Stalling for Two Years, CBP Returns Truck It Stole at the Border - Hit & Run : Reason.com: "Yesterday Gerardo Serrano was reunited with his 2014 Ford F-250 pickup truck, which was arrested by Customs and Border Protection officers two years ago in connection with international arms smuggling.
The smuggling involved five handgun rounds that Serrano forgot to remove from the truck's center console before embarking on a trip to visit his cousin in Mexico.
The truck was never formally charged with a crime, and neither was Serrano, as is typical in civil forfeiture cases. 
After the Institute for Justice filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Serrano and other similarly situated vehicle owners last month, I.J. says in a press release, CBP lawyers suddenly told him "he could pick up his truck whenever he wanted."
...Serrano is happy about the semi-victory but wants to see more evidence that CBP has seen the error of its car-stealing ways.
"I'm thrilled to have my truck back," Serrano says. "But I'd like somebody to apologize for taking it in the first place.""

Socialized Healthcare: England's NHS To Withhold Care For Smokers And The Obese For 'Routine' Surgeries | Daily Wire:

Image result for flickr commons images surgical room"Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro has repeatedly stated that healthcare has three primary characteristics: affordability, universality, and quality. It’s been shown time and again, in both theory and real life application, that all three characteristics cannot be found in a healthcare system at the same time. Two of these qualities can mutually exist in a given system, but the third, necessarily, falls by the wayside. The latest empirical evidence supporting the theory comes from the National Health Service (NHS) in England, which announced that smokers and the obese will be denied most surgeries until the patient’s lifestyle meets NHS standards."

"Dear Sir,
recent media reports of the deaths of almost all of this year’s Adelie penguin chicks in East
Antarctica should alarm those who express concern about global warming.
The problem – too much sea ice, meaning that there was too long a trek to feed the chicks.
Satellite pictures confirm this.
Meantime ice in the Arctic has also recently increased while anthropogenic emissions have
continued to rise.

More Cases of Voter Fraud Pile Up As Liberals Look the Other Way | The Heritage Foundation:

Image result for Voting Clip Art"Accounting for these new additions, the database now documents 1,088 proven instances of election fraud, including 949 cases that have resulted in criminal convictions, 48 that have ended in civil penalties, and 75 that have seen defendants enter diversion programs.

Americans should be alarmed, not only because Heritage has compiled so many examples of fraud—impacting nearly every state and elections for all levels of government—but because this figure is likely just the tip of the iceberg."

Melania Trump cuts bloated first lady payroll from Michelle Obama days | Fox News
Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on government payroll in the first lady’s office compared to former first lady Michelle Obama."Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history.
According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady's office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama.
During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year.
This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700..."

Russia tables turn, roping Clinton, Obama, Holder, not Trump - Washington Times

Russia tables turn, roping Clinton, Obama, Holder, not Trump - Washington Times
"The tables have turned and what was once the media’s favorite message — President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election — has now grown silent.
Apparently, it’s Bill and Hillary Clinton who’ve been doing the behind-scenes and suspicious dealings with Russia all along.
Oh, and perhaps others in the Barack Obama administration, too.
Image result for hillary russia...Better to dig deeper into this, as reported by The Hill: “Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.”
Intercepted emails shows that Russia had actually gained an inroad in America and compromised a U.S. uranium trucking firm with bribes.
But this is the bigger news: The feds also found an eyewitness who provided documented evidence to show that these Russia nuke officials had sent millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation — at a time when Hillary was serving as secretary of state and on a government body that extended favor to Russia.
...The feds suspected as early as 2009 that Russia was engaged in this dirty dealing. 
And the United States, under Barack Obama’s administration, did nothing.
“Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting [Vladimir] Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions,” The Hill wrote..."

Image result for prostitution lawsBrought by the Erotic Service Providers Legal, Education, and Research Project (ESPLERP), the constitutional challenge claims that California's prostitution laws violate residents' right to privacy, free speech, and free association.
"Our hope is to see this bad law struck down," said ESPLERP President Maxine Doogan, "so that consenting adults who choose to be involved in prostitution are simply treated as private citizens again, and are afforded all the privacy and constitutional rights thereof."
The Ninth Circuit judges seemed at least somewhat sympathetic to that view.
"Why should it be illegal to sell something that you can give away for free?" Judge Consuelo Callahan asked the state's attorney, Sharon O'Grady.
She replied that it should be illegal because the legislature declared it so..."

A world without hate speech

A world without hate speech:
"It takes as little as a flyer, a speech, a newspaper article, or a comedian to trigger calls for “hate speech” bans on college campuses. 
Image result for hate speechConsidering that many college students support the prohibition of hate speech, let’s imagine if the would-be censors got their way — what would our society look like?
First, we must acknowledge that, in the United States, hateful speech is fully protected by the First Amendment. 
There’s no “hate speech versus free speech” debate raging in our nation’s judiciary. 
Nor is there a balancing test, an exemption, or a special constitutional provision allowing the government to prohibit it — hateful speech is categorically protected in our nation, including at public colleges and universities, and that’s not changing anytime soon.
Getting back to our hate speech-less utopia, we have the luxury of looking to an actual world full of hate speech prosecutions in the many nations that do not enjoy our broad free speech protections. 

  • For example, in Pakistan, people are arrested and sentenced to death for “blasphemy” for insulting Islam, while in Egypt, individuals are arrested for “debauchery” for waving rainbow flags at concerts.
  • Then, there are the thirty Turkish journalists currently facing consecutive life sentences for their anti-government articles, as well as the Kyrgyz author imprisoned for “inciting hatred between religious groups” for publishing a book questioning God’s form.
  • Don’t forget about Germany, where just this year police raided dozens of people’s homes for “hateful postings over social media,” 
  • or the United Kingdom, where a man was convicted for his anti-military Facebook comments, 
  • or France, where a man was fined for holding up a sign saying “Get lost, jerk” to French President Nicolas Sarkozy — words Sarkozy himself said to a critic who refused to shake his hand during a public event.

Alabama Police Use Asset Forfeiture to Ruin an Innocent Small Business Owner - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Alabama Police Use Asset Forfeiture to Ruin an Innocent Small Business Owner - Hit &; Run : Reason.com:
"A news report from Alabama offers two textbook cases of how sweeping powers of civil asset forfeiture allow police to seize people's property with near impunity.
Under civil asset forfeiture laws, police can take property suspected of being connected to criminal activity, even if the owner is not charged with a crime.
Law enforcement and prosecutors say the practice is a vital tool to disrupt drug trafficking and other organized crime by targeting ill-gotten gains.
Image result for this wrongBut in state after state, horror stories have emerged of regular people having their possessions expropriated and their lives turned upside down.
In the Alabama case, around 20 heavily armed officers raided Frank Ranelli's computer repair shop in Ensley in 2010, on a tip that Ranelli was selling stolen goods.
Police seized roughly 130 computers from the shop, most of them belonging to customers.
The Alabama news outlet Al.com reports what happened next:
Nothing ever came of the case.
The single charge of receiving stolen goods was dismissed after Ranelli demonstrated that he had followed proper protocol in purchasing the sole laptop computer he was accused of receiving illegally.
Yet none of the property seized by police that summer morning more than seven years ago has been returned to him.
"Here I was, a man, owned this business, been coming to work every day like a good old guy for 23 years, and I show up at work that morning—I was in here doing my books from the day before—and the police just f***ed my life," he said..."
