Have you noticed how the mainstream media has recently mocked the notion that leftwing protesters are being paid? The idea is ridiculous they claim and only Trump and his supporters are making that silly charge. Well, guess what? A pair of leftwingers have confirmed in the April 26 Washington Post that protesters are indeed paid.

The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said in a new report that there is a “geographical concentration” of murders, with 68 percent of killings occurring in just 5 percent of the nation’s counties. The homicides also tend to be concentrated to relatively small pockets of those counties, the report said.
“It is stunning how concentrated murders are in the U.S.,” John Lott, president of the CPRC said to Fox News. “And we show that even within these counties, with all these high rates, murders are very concentrated.”
“These high [rate] counties have very large areas where there are no murders.”
Glenn Says: Looks like high crime and the location of massive numbers of illegal aliens go hand in glove. What a surprise!
Texas Republicans were poised Wednesday to take a big step toward banning “sanctuary cities” in their state, debating a bill through which police chiefs and sheriffs could even be jailed for not cooperating fully with federal immigration authorities.
Although Democrats don’t have the votes in the Republican-controlled Legislature to stop the bill from going to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who made such a ban a priority, they vowed to fight it at every step, promising hours of emotionally charged debate on Wednesday before the Texas House votes.
Under the bill, the state could withhold funding from local governments for acting as sanctuary cities, even as the Trump administration’s efforts to do so nationally have hit roadblocks. Other Republican-controlled states have pushed for similar polices in recent years, just as more liberal ones have done the opposite. But Texas would be the first in which police chiefs and sheriffs could be jailed for not helping enforce immigration law. They could also lose their jobs.
The bill is needed to “keep the public safe and remove bad people from the street,” said Rep. Charlie Geren of Fort Worth.
“The bill does not target or discriminate against illegal immigrants. This bill specifically targets criminals who happen to be here illegally,” Geren said.
If Hillary Clinton had won the election, her Oval Office desk would be filled with legislation passed by congress which she would be signing. Heck, she’d have writer’s cramp from all of the special interest legislation that would be flowing to her desk.
Why? Simply because the authors of the legislation, the special interest and lobbying groups, were spending millions to fund her campaign. President Hillary Clinton would be signing K-Street constructed special interest legislation to repay all of those donors/investors. Congress would be fast-tracking the passage because the same interest groups also fund the members of congress.
President Donald Trump winning the election threw a monkey wrench into the entire DC system…. The modern legislative machine is frozen in place.
The “America First” policies represented by candidate Donald Trump are not within the legislative constructs coming from the authors of the legislation. Congress has no bills to advance because all of the myriad of bills and briefs written are not in line with President Trump policy.
That’s why congress has not passed any legislation for President Trump to sign.
New York City Guns Radio Episode
IN THIS EPISODE:
New charges – and new suspects – in the NYPD Handgun Licensing Scandal. Sex, Booze, 8K watches and gender dysphoria…ONLY in New York City! Remember, the investigation is not over…bigger fish wait in the wings…the frying pan is heating up.
WARNING! This Content Contains AWESOME VULGARITY
“Alleged corruption has pervaded the Licensing Division up to its senior level,” Kim said, “alleged corruption that spawned a cottage industry of bribers masquerading as so-called expediters.”
Dean, who was second in command in the Licensing Division before his retirement, had also toyed with the idea of becoming an expediter himself.
“I am done watching people make money off my back,” Dean told one gun broker, according to court papers. “I’m the one who’s signing off on everything. I’m the one who’s taking care of everything … you’re making money, you and dozens of other people.”
The officers were accused of “failing to interview the applicants” and investigating whether they really had a business-based need for a gun as they pushed through license requests.
Three Former Police Officers And Former Assistant District Attorney Arrested In Connecton With Gun License Bribery Scheme
In addition to this bribery scheme, JOHN CHAMBERS, a former Assistant District Attorney in Kings County, was arrested for a separate bribery conspiracy with Villanueva. CHAMBERS is an attorney who represents individuals before the License Division, and who markets himself to potential clients as the “Top Firearms Licensing Attorney in NY.” From at least 2010 through 2015, CHAMBERS gave Villanueva numerous valuable items, including tickets to sporting and entertainment events for Villanueva and his family, free dinners and lunches for Villanueva, sports memorabilia, and a wristwatch valued at approximately $8,000.
In exchange, Villanueva assisted CHAMBERS’s clients in several ways. He ensured that renewal applications submitted by CHAMBERS’s clients, which typically take 30 to 40 days for approval, were renewed more expeditiously, sometimes as quickly as within one day. In addition, in evaluating “incidents” – investigations to determine whether an individual’s gun license should be suspended or revoked – Villanueva expedited the investigations, and then shortened the suspension periods, for CHAMBERS’s clients.
Villanueva also helped CHAMBERS renew gun licenses for clients before the Pistol Section of the Nassau County Police Department, where Villanueva had contacts. Starting in or about 2012, CHAMBERS brought his clients’ renewal applications to Villanueva at One Police Plaza, and Villanueva mailed those applications to the Pistol Section using his NYPD License Division stationery. Villanueva did so knowing that because he was submitting the renewal applications using his NYPD License Division stationery, the renewals would be approved in a significantly faster time for CHAMBERS’s clients than for other applicants. In exchange, CHAMBERS paid Villanueva several times in cash, as well as with tickets to sporting and entertainment events for Villanueva and his family. CHAMBERS typically mailed Villanueva the cash by taping it to the inside of a magazine.
Trans Gun Attorney John S. Chambers in a crudely photo-shopped fake photo.
Today New York City Gun Attorney John S. Chambers was arrested by the FBI for his connection to the NYC Pistol Licensing Scandal. Chambers, someone known within the small New York City Gun Community as a trans, used to be an Assistant District Attorney in New York City in the 1980s when “he” was still “Susan Chambers.”
Rumor has it Susan Chambers’ career as ADA ended under a cloud of unethical behavior.
I cannot say if these rumors are true!
I can say that the fully TRANSUBSTANTIATED John S. Chambers has been arrested today. Any/All purported male hormones and genital surgery cannot save this individual now! Joking aside, here are the details…
The New York Daily News reports:
Law enforcement sources say those arrested Tuesday include retired NYPD Lieutenant Paul Dean, retired NYPD officers Robert Espinel and Gaetano Valastro, and John Chambers, an attorney and former Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney.
In separate court papers filed in federal court in Manhattan, two others, including former NYPD Sgt. David Villanueva, who was assigned to the department’s licensing division, and a man named Frank Soohoo, are charged with bribery, also in connection with the issuance of gun licenses by the NYPD.
According to court papers, Chambers, a Brooklyn ADA for two years in the 1980s who in his private legal work marketed himself as the “Top Firearms Licensing Attorney in NY,” allegedly gave Villanueva tickets to Broadway shows and sporting events, an $8,000 watch and cash hidden in magazines in exchange for expediting gun license applications for Chambers’ clients.
Looks like this shim sham artist is going down faster than the Titanic! Although this small blurb was meant to be humorous, it does deal with very serious issues that directly impact the New York City gun community.

A segment of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show displayed a chyron implying the widespread anti-socialist protests in Venezuela were actually against President Donald Trump.
The show, which aired on Thursday, implied that a donation to Donald Trump’s inauguration of $500,000 from a subsidiary of a Venezuelan state-run oil company was a cause of recent protests.
A headline at the bottom of the screen during a segment explaining the donation read: “Unrest in Venezuela Over Trump Donations,” without noting the growing food and medicine shortages that have occurred there as a direct result of nearly two decades of socialist mismanagement.
I am a Carl Sagan fan from way back. His 1980 TV miniseries “Cosmos” hit me at just the right age and inflamed a lifelong love of science. But we’ve had nearly 40 years to assess the long-term effects and see how Sagan unwittingly contributed to a trend that muddled public understanding of science. This weekend’s so-called “March for Science” is a perfect example of what went wrong.
All you really need to know about the “March for Science” is that it is scheduled for Earth Day. The organizers may say the march is nonpartisan and has a variety of goals, but it’s mostly just about global warming. It’s not just about whether global warming is actually happening, or whether it is caused by human activity, but about a specific political program for dealing with global warming.
To be sure, there are other goals involved in the march and some contention, even among the organizers, about the extent to which the march should embrace causes like “diversity.” So the goals run the gamut from the left to the far-left. And that’s the problem. The “March for Science” is an attempt to equate the Left’s political goals with Science Itself, claiming the intellectual and moral authority of science for the Left’s agenda.
Rarely has a municipal election in a midsize city ignited such a fierce national debate over what defines a Democrat. But the election this spring for mayor of Omaha is pitting abortion rights activists against economic populists and threatening the party’s unity as it regroups to confront President Trump.
Part of the twist: The populist side’s standard-bearer, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is not even a Democrat. (snip)
Mr. Sanders and the new leadership of the Democratic National Committee touched a party sore spot this week when they took their “Unity Tour” to Omaha to rally for a mayoral candidate who opposes abortion rights. Mr. Sanders, repurposing the themes of his presidential bid, told a crowd of about 6,000 on Thursday night that the candidate, Heath Mello, 37, would be a future star in the Democratic Party who could help break the grip of big money on the nation’s politics.
Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a prominent abortion rights advocacy group, called it a betrayal, especially of the women who have fueled the “resistance” that has energized Democrats since Mr. Trump’s unexpected triumph.
“It tells your most active political base that we’re just negotiable political property,” Ms. Hogue said of the statement sent by Mr. Sanders and Representative Keith Ellison, the Democratic National Committee’s new deputy chairman, who appeared with Mr. Mello. “Since the election, women have been engaged on the front lines of every progressive fight. So what message does it send for the party to start this tour with an anti-choice candidate?”
Mr. Mello, a practicing Catholic, supported a Nebraska State Senate bill requiring that women be informed of their right to request a fetal ultrasound before an abortion. The anger over that position reflects a long-running argument among Democrats over
These reporters knew that the Hillary campaign was at war with itself, that there wasn’t any unity, that there was panic from the beginning because nobody but nobody could tell anybody else why Hillary was running, and Hillary couldn’t, either. Hillary could not articulate why she wanted to be president, other than first woman to hold the office, maybe continue, but she did not have a reason for running. And the reason she didn’t is because she didn’t.
She was running because she was owed it. She was running because it was finally her turn. And they had shafted her on this in 2008, so they rigged the primary this year to get rid of Crazy Bernie and to make sure he didn’t win the nomination no matter how popular he was. She didn’t have a reason. These two reporters are embedded in the campaign, and they have signed NDAs, they promised they won’t reveal sources. They didn’t care to. They withheld all of this news ’til after the campaign for the book so they could profit from it.
But what Democrats are learning now is how the media misreported everything from how well she was doing in the polls to how great this campaign was, to how unified it was. They’re figuring out that they were lied to. Democrats were lied to multiple times a day by the media which was hyping and exaggerating. And look at what’s happened as a result of this. Has a brand ever been pounded harder and deeper into the ground than Clinton Inc.?
And I think this is so important, it’s worth pointing out, because it wasn’t that long ago that everybody in Washington politics was scared to death of these two people, scared to death of them all the way back to the ’92 campaign and the Bill Clinton presidency, and scared to death of the Clintons when Hillary was running for president last year. They were thought to be omnipotent. They were thought to be prolific fundraisers. They had that foundation. They were taking donations, selling access to the office even before she was elected.
Dr. Fakhruddin Attar was arrested in the Detroit suburb of Livonia, Michigan Friday, accused, along with his wife Farida Attar, of involvement in the same female genital mutilation conspiracy that led to the landmark arrest last week of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala.
The three suspects now charged represent the first prosecution in the United States for female genital mutilation (FGM), a practice common primarily in Muslim countries, particularly those in Africa. For example, UNICEF estimates that 98% of Somali girls and 87% of Egyptians have endured the procedure.
‘Shattered’ Revelation: Clinton Campaign Hatched Russian Hacking Narrative 24 Hours After Hillary’s Loss
The new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, reveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling “within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.”
The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.”
