Lonnie Johnson – Another Night To Cry

President Trump Delivers Remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (Video)

Must watch video from CPAC 2018, Oxen Hill, MD.

The murder and dismembering of this 18-year-old girl and arrest of a failed asylum seeker has convulsed the Italian elections where mass migration is THE issue – and the far-Right is on the march

Pamela Mastropietro, 18, went missing only to be found dead in a ditch. An illegal immigrant was arrested for her killing, triggering vigilante attacks. The death in north east Italy sent shock waves around an already divided nation. Italians go to the polls in two weeks following an ill-tempered election campaign. EU’s failed migration policies mean immigration has become a key election issue.

Flowers are still arriving at the roadside for Pamela Mastropietro. It is just over two weeks since this troubled blonde 18-year-old went missing here, only to resurface in a pair of suitcases left in a ditch.

No sooner was an illegal immigrant arrested for her killing than a local neo-fascist took it upon himself to drive around town in broad daylight shooting anyone who looked vaguely foreign.

Six African migrants were injured — though no one has left any flowers for them.

Several arrests and the arrival of one of the country’s top police officers here have done little to calm the mood.

Troubling questions continue to emerge. Why are some of the girl’s body parts allegedly missing? And why was the suspected murderer here in Macerata at all, having had all his claims for asylum rejected?

It may sound like something out of a gritty American inner-city drama, but it is all too real here in north-east Italy.

The shockwaves caused by events in this handsome hill town are not merely reverberating through Italy.

If Immigration Creates Wealth, Why Is California America’s Poverty Capital?

California became a Democratic stronghold not because Californians became socialists, but because millions of socialists moved there. Immigration turned California blue, and immigration is ultimately to blame for California’s high poverty level.

California used to be home to America’s largest and most affluent middle class. Today, it is America’s poverty capital. What went wrong? In a word: immigration.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Official Poverty Measure, California’s poverty rate hovers around 15 percent. But this figure is misleading: the Census Bureau measures poverty relative to a uniform national standard, which doesn’t account for differences in living costs between states – the cost of taxes, housing, and health care are higher in California than in Oklahoma, for example. Accounting for these differences reveals that California’s real poverty rate is 20.6 percent – the highest in America, and nearly twice the national average of 12.7 percent.

Likewise, income inequality in California is the second-highest in America, behind only New York. In fact, if California were an independent country, it would be the 17th most unequal country on Earth, nestled comfortably between Honduras and Guatemala. Mexico is slightly more egalitarian. California is far more unequal than the “social democracies” it emulates: Canada is the 111th most unequal nation, while Norway is far down the list at number 153 (out of 176 countries). In terms of income inequality, California has more in common with banana republics than other “social democracies.”

Ben Shapiro: The era of political correctness is over (Video)

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro on Thursday told activists that the “era of political correctness is over” in the age of Donald J. Trump as president, while encouraging conservatives to fight liberalism with the “truth.”

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro on Thursday told activists that the “era of political correctness is over” in the age of Donald Trump as president, while encouraging conservatives to fight liberalism with the “truth.”

“The era of political correctness is over,” Shapiro said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington. “Political correctness is dying a slow, painful, bloody, agonizing death. And all I can say is hell, yeah.”

Like other speakers here, Shapiro addressed the recent school shooting in Florida, and accused the media of unfairly treating conservative views on guns.

He asked the audience to raise their hands if they care about the people murdered in Parkland, Fla. He also asked them to raise their hands if they believe in Second Amendment rights.

“See, both things can go together, media,” Shapiro said.

Marion Marechal-Le Pen “I Am Not Offended When I Hear President Trump Say America First!” (Video)

Guardian, HuffPost Contributor Karen Geier: ‘Hopefully’ Kim Jong Un ‘Can Drop a Bomb on CPAC’

Guardian and HuffPost contributor Karen Geier expressed hope on Twitter that North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un would “drop a bomb on CPAC” this week.

“My thoughts and prayers are with Kim Jong Un today. Hopefully he can drop a bomb on CPAC,” declared Geier on Twitter, Thursday. “Before you report this tweet: Thoughts n prayers don’t do shit… I’m probably going to get put on the naughty stool for this tweet, but I am blocked by most of the conservative diarrhoea train accounts.”

Shortly after making the post, Geier set her Twitter account to private.

Geier has previously contributed to the Guardian, HuffPost, Global News, and is known for making controversial posts on Twitter.

“I am sorry that people had to tolerate Roger Ailes in life,” Geier posted just one day after Ailes’ death in May 2017, while in a January 2017 post, she declared, “PUNCH NAZIS… SAVE LIVES.”

Twitter has taken no action against Geier’s account yet, which remains verified. This is in stark contrast to the action it took against the popular right-winger Clarkhat last week, who had his account permabanned after making a similar poor-taste joke about mass murder.

Tucker: Federal courts the most decayed institution of all (Video)

Under the last two administrations, the courts have increasingly come to view themselves, not as interpreters of the law, but as the country’s main policymakers.

Why America Is Going Broke

Entitlements are driving deficits and debt. Absent reform, the problem will soon become a crisis.

The federal deficit is big and getting bigger. President Trump’s budget estimates a deficit of nearly $900 billion for 2018 and nearly $1 trillion (with total spending of $4.4 trillion) for 2019. Its balance sheet reveals that the public debt will reach $15.7 trillion by October. This works out to $48,081.61 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. That doesn’t count unfunded liabilities, reported by the Social Security and Medicare Trustees, that are four times the current public debt.

Amazing New Breakthrough To Reduce Mass Shootings! by Ann Coulter

There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent — 16 — were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.

As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton’s oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we’ve put a lot on the agency’s plate.

We’re hauling in nearly 2 million manifestly unvetted Third World immigrants every year, leading to a slew of FBI “Watch Lists” with a million names apiece. In 2015, Director James Comey said that there were ISIS investigations in all 50 states — even Idaho and Alaska! And that’s just one terrorist organization.

Maybe the FBI brass would still be a bunch of incompetent, PC nincompoops if we weren’t dumping millions of psychotic and terrorist foreigners on the country. But even the most efficient organization would have trouble keeping track of the Nikolas Cruzes when our immigration policies require approximately one-third of the country to be constantly watching another third of the country.

Thanks to our Second Amendment, the United States has fewer mass shootings per capita than many other developed countries, including Norway, France, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic. (And 98 percent of our mass shootings occur in “gun-free zones.”)

But imagine if we could cut our mass shootings in half?
