Ann Coulter:
"Donald Trump is being told that amnesty for “Dreamers,” or DACA recipients, will only apply to a small, narrowly defined group of totally innocent, eminently deserving illegal immigrants, who were brought to this country “through no fault of their own” as “children.” (Children who are up to 36 years old.)
Every syllable of that claim is a lie, and I can prove it.

To see how DACA will actually work, let’s look at another extremely limited amnesty that was passed in 1986.

Farmers wanted temporary guest-worker permits for their cheap labor, so that they could continue pretending that the Industrial Revolution never happened and refuse to mechanize. (And, boy, did that work! We haven’t heard a peep about “crops rotting in the fields” since then.)

The agricultural amnesty was supposed to apply to — at most — 350,000 illegal aliens. It would be available only to illegals who were currently in the country doing the back-breaking farm work that no American would do. Without them, crops would wither on the vine. They were saving us from starvation!

Talk about deserving. Are any Dreamers saving us from starvation?

But instead of guest-worker permits, then-Rep. Charles Schumer — from the lush farmland of Brooklyn — decided to grant full amnesty to any illegals who had done farm work for at least 90 days in the previous year.

That’s pretty restrictive, isn’t it?

In the end, “up to 350,000 farm workers” turned into 1.3 million."

"While President Trump can always call off military action, the planning phases for an attack on North Korea are going on now. Orders have been given. Preparations have been made. It is fair to say that contingency plans have been in place since the late 1990s.

The North Korean issue was dumped in Donald Trump’s lap. It is largely attributed to bad diplomacy and faulty leadership through the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. There have been deals with North Korea put in place throughout the years that put hard sanctions on the regime.

We’ve been down this road before. Every time North Korea engages in dangerous behavior, the international community and the United States places pressure on them. It has worked where both sides have agreed to terms, but the North Koreans continuously break their promises and escalate programs.

For the eight years under the Obama administration nearly nothing was done and the issue was largely ignored. It’s hard to point blame at Trump, and while he has dialed up the rhetoric, this has been going on for decades.

As tensions increase, there’s going to be rising stock market volatility. This is where the logic of war comes in. The French call it, La Logique de la Guerre. The logic of war is different than the logic of diplomacy. It refers to the dynamic of how wars begin despite the fact that the war itself will be horrendous, counterproductive, and possibly end in complete defeat.

Under the logic of war, there’s an escalatory logic that leads to war even when no one thinks it’s a good idea.

There is a theory that Kim Jong-Un is mentally unstable, but in many ways the situation is even more complex because he is extremely isolated and exists in his own dangerous bubble.

There are very few that have told the North Korean leader that he is going down the wrong path. Even if there are talks going on currently behind the scenes with the Russians and Chinese, he’s not someone who is getting much independent advice.” Jonathan Chambers

"There are certain buzzwords that the radical left loves to use in order to shame their political enemies, no matter how unrealistic their claims may be.

This is due to the progressive left’s incessant need to invent new insults to use agains their conservative foes. The tactic is simple; by creating the rules as they go, there is no possible way for the rest of the nation to keep up with the “correct” terminology, automatically rendering whatever these liberal agitators state as fact.

Terms such as “racist” and “bigot” have been old standbys for those looking to denigrate their politic opposition, particularly in the age of President Trump. As those hateful terms become old-hat, however, new, more offensive insults have been rolled out by the radical left. Their latest term du jour has been “white supremacist” – a viciously abrasive phrase that conjures up some of the most horrific images that Americans have been subjected to in our long history.

The left has been slinging “white supremacy” around in abundance ever since the radical leftist riots of Charlottesville, Virginia weeks ago. Now, however, they have gone too far.

“A Twitter-certified journalist has attributed laws protecting private property to ‘white supremacy,’ drawing a flood of criticisms and mockery.

“Sarah L. Jaffe, Nation Institute fellow and journalist whose work has appeared in Salon, the Week, the Washington Post, and the Atlantic, slammed the Miami Police Department for a Twitter ad warning against looting, since the looters featured in the accompanying photo happened to be predominantly black.

“In her Tweet, Jaffe stated that ‘the carceral state exists to protect private property,’ which seemed to imply that the defense of private property is a bad thing and a tool of ‘white supremacy.’ She failed to give her opinion concerning whether the state should defend the property of people of color.

“Jaffe’s Tweet received 4,300 “likes” but also unleashed a hurricane of scorn, which took a wide variety of forms.”

The unbelievable idea that locking up those who chose to exploit a natural disaster in order to loot and steal is somehow akin to racism, in any way, is indicative of just how far removed the radical left is from reality.

It’s as though affirmative action should somehow extend beyond its societal bounds and be used to rescue criminals from their own crimes. Worse yet, by applying race to the subject of law and order, Jaffe and her cretinous colleagues have fomented racism of their own. This was an issue about whether or not laws had been broken only until Jaffe herself made it about race.”

Manafort Used Trump Campaign Account to Email Ukrainian Operative with Russian Ties

Postby Joel » Wed Sep 20, 2017 10:02 pm

Former Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort used his presidential campaign email account to correspond with a Ukrainian political operative with suspected Russian ties, according to people familiar with the correspondence. Manafort sent emails to seek repayment for previous work he did in Ukraine and to discuss potential new opportunities in the country, even as he chaired Trump’s presidential campaign, these people said. Manafort had been a longtime consultant for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president until 2014, and his Party of Regions. During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Ukrainian investigators said they had discovered evidence that Manafort received millions of dollars in off-the-books payments for his work there. In the emails to Konstantin Kilimnik, a Manafort protégé who has previously been reported to have suspected ties to Russian intelligence, the longtime GOP operative made clear his significant sway in Trump’s campaign. He and Kilimnik also met in the United States while Manafort worked for the Trump campaign, which he chaired until an August 2016 shake-up. The emails also showed Manafort sought to arrange briefings on the 2016 presidential race for Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire with ties to the Kremlin.

Giving the Deep State More Leeway to Kill With Drones

Postby Joel » Sun Sep 24, 2017 3:23 pm

Giving the Deep State More Leeway to Kill With Drones

President Trump is poised to compound the most grave moral failing of his predecessor by making targeted killings less safe, less legal, and less rare

The Trump administration believes that the targeted-killing policy of its predecessor is too restrictive, and officials intend to give what some call “the administrative state” and others call “the deep state” the ability to use lethal force with less oversight.

Expect more secretive killings by the CIA.

Former President Barack Obama presided over roughly 10 times as many lethal air strikes as George W. Bush in covert war-on-terror operations outside the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. The killings targeted terrorists belonging to groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, as well as other militants that posed threats to allied regimes but not the United States.

American officials described those operations as “exceptionally surgical and precise,” as if innocent men, women, and children had nothing to fear from the strikes. But U.S. strikes in just three countries—Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen—killed at least 384 innocent civilians and as many as 807, in addition to terrorists, according to a credible tally kept by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Put another way, attempts to preempt terrorism from those countries killed at least 128 times more innocents than the Boston Marathon bombing.

A surgeon as sloppy as that would be indicted.

The U.S. government has never explained how it calculates whether the cost of a given targeted killing outweighs the benefits. One wonders how many terrorists, or sworn enemies of America, are created on average when our drones kill an innocent. If the Pentagon or CIA has a working theory, official secrecy makes it impossible to vet.

On the other side of the ledger, al-Qaeda and ISIS kill far more civilians outside the United States than inside it. Some drone strikes surely spare more foreign innocents than they kill.

The trend of more secretive killings in successive presidencies will now continue. The Trump administration “is preparing to dismantle key Obama-era limits on drone strikes and commando raids outside conventional battlefields,” according to a New York Times article by Charlie Savage and Eric Schmitt, trusted bylines on this subject.

Two rule changes loom largest:
First, the targets of kill missions by the military and the C.I.A., now generally limited to high-level militants deemed to pose a “continuing and imminent threat” to Americans, would be expanded to include foot-soldier jihadists with no special skills or leadership roles. And second, proposed drone attacks and raids would no longer undergo high-level vetting.

The article adds that officials agree “they should keep in place one important constraint for such attacks: a requirement of ‘near certainty’ that no civilian bystanders will be killed.” What that constraint means in practice has long been unclear since civilian bystanders have, in fact, been killed every year it has been in place.

Given the horrific possibility of killing innocents and the risk of subsequent blowback, why would U.S. officials want to expand permissible targets from those who pose a “continuing or imminent threat” to Americans to “foot-soldier jihadists”?

Luke Hartig articulates the logic at Just Security:
Over 16 years of operations, our counterterrorism professionals have become adept at analyzing the structure of terrorist networks and targeting them based on the understanding that there are particular nodes that, if removed, could have a devastating impact on the entire network.

In many cases, those nodes may be couriers, bodyguards, or propagandists who, while lawful military targets under the laws of war, may not pose a continuing, imminent threat to U.S. persons. The new policy appears to give operators greater leeway to target according to what will be considerably more effective in disrupting and defeating terrorist networks. The challenge … will be establishing governing principles that limit the pace of strikes (as the continuing, imminent-threat standard did), since there are few countries outside of hot war zones that will give the U.S. blanket approvals for unfettered drone campaigns.
That logic is seductive but incomplete.

It may sound like common sense to target “couriers, bodyguards, or propagandists” that are assisting al-Qaeda or ISIS. But consider how many innocents U.S. drone strikes killed when ostensibly targeting only “imminent” threats. As the number of targets increase, danger to innocents will, too.

A thought experiment can make these trade-offs less abstract. Forget about Yemen, a country most Americans cannot begin to picture, and consider this truth: A propagandist for ISIS or al-Qaeda could conceivably live in the apartment or house next to yours. Or he could work next door to your child’s school. If that were the case, would you want the CIA to fire a Hellfire missile at him, knowing that neighboring buildings are sometimes struck and that innocents are sometimes killed? Americans accept “collateral damage,” including dead children, in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen that they would never tolerate in their own communities.

Homegrown terrorism poses a much bigger risk to Americans than terrorists in Pakistan, Somalia, or Yemen. And an ongoing drone policy that kills lots of innocents abroad increases the likelihood that people here will become radicalized against the United States, as bygone terrorists who’ve cited such grievances illustrate.

Drone strikes, especially those conducted in secret by the CIA, make it easier for elected and appointed elites to wage endless war all over the globe without securing the explicit permission of the people or even their representatives in Congress.

The institutional player that would normally push back against the Pentagon and the CIA, the State Department, is presently less able to clarify the costs of excessively blowing people up for the president, because the president has failed to properly staff Foggy Bottom and seemingly doesn’t understand its purpose.

Al-Qaeda and ISIS are dangerous abominations. Fighting them is just, even if the fight involves the inadvertent killing of innocents, but only if due care is taken to avoid those deaths whenever possible. The entire history of the CIA suggests that it is not an organization one can trust to use lethal force with sufficient prudential and moral restraint, particularly when it needn’t risk its personnel or even public scrutiny to kill.

Obama’s inadequate safeguards guaranteed that U.S. policy on targeted killing would result in more dead innocents than was necessary to achieve like results. The Trump administration is poised to make changes that are even more hubristic and that guarantee even worse outcomes. What’s needed are more checks on killing, not fewer.

"In a display of hipocritical intolerance, it seems the liberals are using their influence and “unbiased” judgment to cut off the flow of funds to Christian groups. . . .
PayPal made the news in August of 2017 when it cancelled the accounts of so-called “hate groups” who depend on it for donations from readers. CBS reported:
PayPal is taking action against more than three dozen hate groups and other extremist organizations, sources close to the payments company told CBS MoneyWatch on Wednesday. The move follows this weekend’s violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia….
“Regardless of the individual or organization in question, we work to ensure that our services are not used to accept payments or donations for activities that promote hate, violence or racial intolerance,” PayPal said in a statement.
But it’s not just Paypal who is taking direction from the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Other payments companies are also moving to halt business with far-right groups. Discover Financial Services (DFS) told CBS MoneyWatch that it is terminating merchant agreements with hate groups, citing the “violence incited by their extremist views.”
Today, the latest round in this wave of liberal kneecapping seems to have again targeted American Vision, a 40-year-old organization whose stated mission is to restore America to its Biblical Foundation.
The organisation is an educational ministry that publishes books that promote the Christian worldview, and which also challenge atheism and humanism at their foundations to show how untenable they are. They are a major thorn in the side of liberals because they teach that keeping God and Christian values in government are the keys to liberty.
Its President issued a public announcement on Facebook this morning:
It appears that American Vision’s financial support system is under attack from anti-Christian forces. This morning I was informed that another major online payment service, Stripe Payments, refuses to allow American Vision to use its services for donations due to our alleged violation of its Terms of Service. This constitutes a major setback to our recurring donations and to future finances.

This is now the FOURTH major company or service to terminate with us for the same reason. It began with Amazon Smile, which rejected us from its charitable services program because American Vision is listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s ridiculous and notoriously biased “hate group” list which is used to target conservative Christian organisations who dare to stand up for truth, liberty, and justice."

See the video at this link:

"The most important U.S. Senate race of the year will be decided in Alabama THIS TUESDAY, September 26th.
It's a showdown between Judge Roy Moore, the CONSERVATIVE candidate supported by the grassroots, and appointed Senator Luther Strange, the candidate hand-picked by Mitch McConnell and supported by the Washington ESTABLISHMENT.
According to a new POLITICO report, "Three words are striking fear in Senate Republicans these days: Sen. Roy Moore." In fact, one moderate GOP senator said he's pulling for Strange because if Moore wins, "then we’re all in trouble.”

That's exactly why every conservative in America should support Judge Roy Moore right now. If Moore wins, it will create much-needed accountability for Republicans in Washington.
We're working hard to persuade undecided voters and to help turn out conservatives on Election Day.
We launched a last-minute statewide TV ad called "Gator" that encourages voters to send a fighter to Washington because we don't need another alligator in the swamp.

This race is a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican Party and it will have a major impact on whether Republicans in the Senate continue to break their promises or begin to listen to the voters.
If Judge Roy Moore wins, it will make every Republican politician fear what will happen to them if they don't secure our borders, cut spending, reform the tax code, and truly repeal Obamacare.

Please donate what you can and please pray for the outcome of this important election in Alabama.
The result will not only influence how Senate Republicans behave, it will also set the tone for the 2018 midterm elections. If Roy Moore wins, it will encourage conservatives across the country to challenge the incumbents who refuse to listen to their voters."

"The parents of a young Ohioan who was detained in North Korea for more than a year and died soon after being released said he was "jerking violently," howling, and "staring blankly" when he returned home on a medical flight.
Fred and Cindy Warmbier appeared on Fox News amid an escalating war of words between the Trump administration and North Korea.
A North Korean official has claimed President Donald Trump has, in effect, declared war, which the White House denied.
Otto Warmbier's father said they wanted to speak out about his condition after hearing North Korea claiming to be a victim that's being picked on.
"North Korea is not a victim. They're terrorists," Warmbier said.
"They kidnapped Otto. They tortured him. They intentionally injured him. They are not victims."
The parents described the condition his family found him in when they went aboard an air ambulance that arrived June 13 in Cincinnati.
They said Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, was howling, making an "involuntary, inhuman sound," "staring blankly into space jerking violently," and was blind and deaf with his head shaved.
Fred Warmbier said his mouth "looked like someone had taken a pair of pliers and rearranged his bottom teeth."
Otto's mother and sister ran off the plane at the initial sight of him.
"We weren't prepared ... no mother, no parent should ever have gone through what we went through," Cindy Warmbier said.
She said it was "inexcusable" that her son had been alone in captivity for so long with no one to comfort him. She said she "got it together" and stayed with him after his arrival.
President Trump tweeted about the family's appearance, calling it "a great interview" and that: "Otto was tortured beyond belief by North Korea."
Fred Warmbier also said Otto had a large scar on his right foot and a high fever.
He died less than a week after returning at University of Cincinnati Medical Centre.
North Korea has denied mistreating the youth, sentenced to 15 years of hard labour in March 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster."

"Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced to prison for leaking classified documents and subsequently freed by President Barack Obama, inspired West Point graduate and communist Spenser Rapone to infiltrate the military.

Rapone has come under fire and become the subject of an Army investigation after reports emerged of his open and unabashed support for communism and tweets he made calling for political violence and referring to Secretary of Defense James Mattis as an “evil, vile f***.”

I’m currently an infantry officer at Ft. Drum, NY assigned to the same brigade that she was while enlisted,” Rapone wrote in a post. “Every single day I think of the contradictions of being a communist while in this organization, and her courage and tenacity gives me strength to continue the long march through the institutions.”
Read more at the Daily Caller.

Photos of a West Point alumnus holding a pro-Colin Kaepernick “Communism Will Win” sign while in uniform is riling up the military community.
Images of U.S. infantry Officer Spenser Rapone reached a popular military news site on Tuesday and set off a robust debate on NFL national anthem protests, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback that started it all in 2016, and the shock of seeing an unapologetic communist from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

https://twitter.com/punkproletarian/sta ... 0232072192?

“I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure Colin Kaepernick wasn’t protesting in favor of communism. #ThatGuy,” wrote “Doctrine Man,” the moderator of a well-known Facebook page frequented by active military personnel and veterans.
Readers were shocked to see Mr. Rapone, whose Twitter handle is “Commie Bebop,” raising a clenched fist in support of Mr. Kapernick; another photo featured the officer revealing a Che Guevara shirt under his uniform.

https://twitter.com/punkproletarian/sta ... 8762285056

LawNewz.com by Dan Abrams confirmed Mr. Rapone’s identity Monday evening with the officer himself, but he said was on a field exercise until Friday and would be unable to comment for the time being.
Gateway Pundit then aggregated a host of photos showing the officer promoting communism with Twitter hashtags like #CommunismWillWin, #Marxwasright, and #VeteransForKaepernick.

“Old school grunt here, I was in Berlin when the Wall fell,” wrote Rick Wynne on the Doctrine Man Facebook page. “I can tell you I would NEVER have expected to see photos like these. Wow! I mean, wow! What the hell has happened to the Army? No body policed this crap up when it happened?”

“This old First Sergeant recommends that this prior enlisted soldier be given UCMJ action, a thunk on the head for being stupid and a one-way ticket to the front gate,” added John Zehmisch.
Reader Stephen Stout concurred, saying, “He needs to be discharged for conduct unbecoming of an officer and failure to uphold his oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. Communist extremism is not compatible with being a Soldier in the U.S. Army. He needs to be punished by UCMJ to the fullest extent.”

"Colin Kaepernick started out taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality, but his activism has since expanded to encompass a wide range of leftist causes, including a group named after a convicted cop-killer. The Colin Kaepernick Foundation donated in April $25,000 to Assata’s Daughters, a Chicago “direct action” resistance organisation honouring Assata Shakur, who escaped prison and fled to Cuba after being found guilty in the 1973 murder of Officer Werner Foerster. The grant includes $2,500 for CopWatch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police, and $15,000 for teen training, part of the group’s commitment to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.” Apparently Mr. Kaepernick is also a fan: He retweeted a July 16 message wishing Shakur a happy birthday. The contribution came as part of Mr. Kaepernick’s pledge last year to donate $1 million over 10 months to “organisations working in oppressed communities.” So far he has given $900,000 in grants to 31 organizations, including advocacy groups pushing a left-of-center agenda on issues like abortion, climate change, criminal-justice reform and immigration. Contributions include $25,000 for 350.org, a climate-change group dedicated to fighting fossil fuels, and $25,000 for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-choice advocacy organisation. The foundation gave $25,000 to United We Dream in order to “keep DACA in force,” referring to President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback also has close ties to the Women’s March, including organisers Tamika D. Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. The Kaepernick Foundation donated in June $25,000 to the Gathering for Justice NYC, headed by Ms. Perez, while Ms. Mallory and Ms. Sarsour appeared at the Aug. 24 pro-Kaepernick rally outside NFL headquarters. Part of the Kaepernick Foundation’s $33,000 donation for the Lower East Side Girls Club was designated for travel and lodging for the Women’s March convention in October. The Women’s March returned the favour with a shoutout Sunday on Facebook with a post saying, “#TaketheKnee [is] on the right side of history today — not just NFL players, but all of YOU. Show your support for the athletes siding with justice.” The Women’s March has its own Shakur connection: The group came under fire in July for a tweet celebrating the birthday of Shakur.
Shakur was placed on the FBI’s most-wanted list as a “domestic terrorist” who belonged to an “extremist group,” the Black Revolutionary Army. The backlash included a tweet from Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, who said, “Unbelievable that anyone would idolize a cop killer.” Assata’s Daughters has been upfront about its admiration for Shakur, saying on its website that it “carries on the tradition of radical liberatory activism encompassed by Assata Shakur.” “Basically our organization is a part of a much larger movement that is fighting for the abolition of prisons, police and anti-blackness itself,” said Assata’s Daughters adult coordinator in a video. Shakur, who was wounded in the 1977 shootout on the New Jersey turnpike that left two dead, including the officer, has argued that her murder conviction and life sentence were part of a “political prosecution” at the hands of a “racist legal system.” Formerly Joanne Chesimard, she has since become a martyr on the left, drawing support from high-profile activists, like Angela Davis.

Assata’s Daughters described its role as “one of helping to escalate, deepen and sustain the Black Lives Matter movement.” “We believe it is our duty to fight for our freedom,” the group says on its website. “We believe it is our duty to fight for freedom.

Kaepernick wears socks depicting cops as pigs. During the 2016 NFL season, Mr. Kaepernick touched off a political uproar over his refusal to stand for the national anthem, citing high-profile shootings of black men by police and what he called “systematic oppression” of U.S. minorities. Mr. Kaepernick later faced criticism for his defence of former Cuban strongman Fidel Castro and wearing a T-shirt showing a 1960 meeting between Castro with Malcolm X."

"Over the past few days, millions of Americans have expressed their outrage over professional football players kneeling during the national anthem. Now, that outrage is turning into action.
A number of truck drivers, veterans and everyday Americans are threatening to boycott the gas station chain Pilot Flying J over the actions of the owner — who also owns the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, as well as the actions of one store manager in Kentucky.
Several weeks ago, according to WSAZ, a group of veterans rolled up to a Flying J in the Bluegrass State and put up flags to welcome a rolling Vietnam Memorial. The manager of that particular store then came out and told the vets they weren’t allowed to fly the flags.
Since the incident, a large group of veterans have been staging a protest, demanding that the Flying J install a flag pole and fly both the American and POW flags.

In a statement, Pilot Flying J claimed the flags are not allowed to fly for safety reasons.
“Pilot Flying J proudly welcomes the American flag at all our locations. After looking into the concern at our store #660, located at 15236 State Route 180, Catlettsburg, KY, we found that the concerns were not with the flags themselves but with the safety of where they were placed as we need to make sure they don’t block the lines of sight of drivers pulling into our locations,” read a statement by the company.

As if that particular controversy wasn’t enough, another group of patriots are calling for a boycott of all Pilot Flying J locations because of the on-field protests of Pilot Flying J owner Jimmy Haslam’s Browns football players.
In a video recorded outside a Pilot Flying J store and posted on Facebook, a man identifying himself as a Navy veteran named Matt called for a boycott of the stores until Haslam stops supporting those who are disrespecting the American flag.
“We just watched the beginning of the Cleveland Browns (game) and the national anthem, and the owner, Jimmy Haslam allowed most of his team to take a knee during the anthem,” Matt stated.
Matt also spray-painted a big red red circle with a line through it on his Browns leather jacket.
“Jimmy Haslam owns all the Pilots and the Flying Js in the country. What you need to do if you support this (is) do not go to a Pilot, do not go to a Flying J, until he states to his team that no member will be allowed to take a knee during the national anthem” he continued.
This will likely not be the last boycott brought on by the national anthem protests. These football team owners are about to pay for their actions with their wallets.
If Americans stop watching the games, stop patronizing the team owners’ other businesses, and otherwise stop giving these non-patriots their money, it hopefully won’t be long before they change their tune about allowing players to kneel.”

The shooter's companion Marilou Danley has been ruled out of the investigation and is currently outside of the US..

"At least 50 people have been killed and more than 400 injured when a gunman with a high-powered weapon opened fire on an outdoor music festival in Las Vegas.
Police said the gunman, Stephen Craig Paddock, fired on a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the city's famous Strip.
Thousands of concert-goers fled in panic as 64-year-old Paddock's rapid-fire barrage rained down from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino adjacent to the concert venue.
The death toll, which police emphasised was preliminary and tentative, would make the attack the deadliest mass shooting in US history, eclipsing last year's massacre of 49 people at an Orlando night club.

County Sherriff Joseph Lombardo said Paddock, a Nevada resident, was found dead inside his hotel room after heavily armed officers began clearing the hotel in their search for the gunman.
He is thought to have taken his own life and was found with more than 10 rifles, Sheriff Lombardo said.
Video posted to social media showed concert-goers fleeing the festival venue after a prolonged burst of gunfire. Some later reported initially thinking the noise was caused by fireworks.
Country singer Jason Aldean was performing the end of his set when he stopped singing after the noise of gunfire broke out.
Video from people in the crowd showed him fleeing the stage soon after.

The shooter's brother, Eric Paddock, said the family was stunned by news of his sibling's involvement.
"We have no idea. We're horrified. We're bewildered and our condolences go out to the victims," he said.

Two off-duty police officers who were attending the concert were among the dead, Sherriff Lombardo said.

Several hours after the shooting unfolded US President Donald Trump tweeted: "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!".
The Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval has called the mass shooting "a tragic and heinous act of violence".

Some police officers took cover behind their vehicles while others carrying assault rifles ran into the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
Flights were temporarily halted at McCarran International Airport because of the shooting."

"US President Donald Trump has condemned the "evil" actions of a man who opened fire on a Las Vegas open-air music festival, leaving more than 58 people dead and hundreds injured.
Speaking slowly and sombrely from the White House, Mr Trump declared the United States would rally together in the face of the latest act of senseless violence.We are joined together today in sadness, shock and grief … it was an act of pure evil.
Mr Trump praised the first responders who he said prevented further loss of life, and said he would visit Las Vegas on Wednesday.
He offered condolences to the families of those killed, saying "we cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss".
"We are praying for you," he said. "We are here for you."
As a mark of respect for the victims, Mr Trump said the US flag would be flown at half-mast at the White House, naval stations, military posts, and at all public buildings for the next week."

“The father of the gunman behind the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history robbed a string of banks in Arizona, escaped prison in Texas and tried to start a new life as the manager of a bingo parlor in Oregon, according to historical newspaper articles.
“Eric, the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 59 people from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino late Sunday, told the Orlando Sentinel that their father was Benjamin Hoskins Paddock.
“The elder Paddock, born in Wisconsin in 1926, had a host of other fake names and nicknames, including ‘Big Daddy’ and ‘Old Baldy,’ and was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list from 1969 to 1977.
“Paddock was indicted in 1960 on three counts of robbing Phoenix branches of Valley National Bank, the Arizona Republic reported on Oct. 6 that year. He was accused of stealing close to $25,000 and was caught in the summer of 1960 by FBI agents in Las Vegas.”
“Bingo Bruce”, as he was commonly known, remained in the crosshairs of federal authorities for decades before finally being slapped with massive fines in the late 1980’s and passing away in 1998."

New Manafort Emails Offer Strong Evidence of Quid Pro Quo with Russian Oligarch

Postby Joel » Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:08 pm

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort continues to be in the news, on Monday The Atlantic released emails, giving an even more detailed look at how Manafort used his power and position on the Trump team to garner favor from Oleg Deripaska, an ally of Vladimir Putin and Russian oligarch. In one of the emails published Manafort wrote to his longtime employee, Russian-Ukrainian operative Konstantin Kilimnik, on April 11, 2016 asking if he had shown "our friends" the media coverage he had gotten since being hired as a senior campaign strategist. The details of the emails offer a clearer picture how much Manafort wanted the Russian Billionaire Deripaska's approval, years after a falling-out over a failed business venture.

Stephen Craig Paddock used identification belonging to Marilou Danley when checking in to the Las Vegas hotel, even though she had been in the Philippines from 25 September. Paddock wired $100,000 to her account in the Philippines some time in the week before the attack, as confirmed by the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). The Philippine office of Interpol arranged for her flight to Los Angeles where she was met by Federal agents who led her out through a side exit after going through customs.

Stephen Craig Paddock worked over a 10-year period as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, an IRS agent and a defense auditor. Paddock’s employment included two years as a mail carrier from 1976 to 1978, followed by a six-year stint with the Internal Revenue Service until 1984. When he then worked as a defence auditor for about 18 months.
The U.S. government should have an extensive file on its former employee, Stephen Paddock, who not only worked directly for the government for nearly a decade but then worked another year-and-a-half for federal weapons contractor Lockheed Martin.
With his institutional knowledge of how the federal bureaucracy works, Paddock was anything but the typical mass shooter. He would have been able to cover his tracks in the planning stages of his attack.

Paddock had set up cameras both inside and outside his hotel room, with at least one placed on a service cart out in the hallway.

Public records appear to show Marilou Danley was married to Geary Danley in 1990 and Jose Bustos in 1996, lived in multiple different addresses in Arkansas, California, Florida and Tennessee, used two Social Security numbers, and had two dates of birth.
Geary Danley, 76, lives in Arkansas, she did not divorce him until 2015. In California, her name is registered as Marilou Natividad-Bustos and her age is listed as 55 - but in Nevada, her name is down as Marilou Lou Danley and her age listed as 62.
