    A new issue for your favorite candidate? Recently, a very dear elderly (mid-80's) relative was scammed for over @30k. This was her entire savings, plus she's now about $8k in debt. Her financial situation was precarious anyway. Her income is very limited, so she has no way to "recover". Worse, almost all her income goes away if her ex-husband dies (which may be one reason she ignored all the red flags.) Additionally, there were / are all sorts of other repercussions including her bank forcing her to close her accounts abruptly, causing even more problems (checks bouncing, etc.) (The bank's...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A former Sacramento police officer convicted of raping a 75-year-old stroke victim in her senior living apartment has been sentenced to life in prison, court records show. Prosecutors said Gary Dale Baker, 52, entered the woman’s apartment at least three times from 2010 to 2012, raping her twice as she suffered from a stroke-related inability to speak. He was convicted in July of nine charges relating to the case, including rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual battery and burglary. On Tuesday, Baker was sentenced to 62 years to life, meaning that he will spend the rest of his...

    Someone has been chaining spiked baseball bats to poles throughout San Francisco, and continue to confuse police officers as to their intended purpose. Officers first received reports of wooden or metal baseball bats appearing on poles and parking meters in the city on Thanksgiving morning, San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. The bats have “spikes” that run through them, and nearly 30 of them have popped up around the city, most recently Friday morning around Fisherman’s Wharf.

    President Obama used his weekly address to appeal to families counting their blessings on Thanksgiving, reminding Americans that the holiday isn’t only about turkey but a tribute to the deep immigration history that led to the nation’s founding. In 1620, a small band of pilgrims came to this continent, refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land, Obama says. Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need. The Obama administration said Wednesday that states can't legally block the...

    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...

    In the latest high-profile racial railroading of a white policeman for obvious political reasons, it has taken authorities over a full year to decide to charge Chicago cop Jason Van Dyke in the fatal shooting of black 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The obviousness of the racial/political theater here is largely due to the fact that the timing of the ridiculous charge — first degree murder — being suddenly announced after all these months, so transparently coincides with the sudden FOIA public release of a police dashcam video of the shooting which, to the untrained eye, looks pretty bad.

    Data for 2014—the latest year available—indicates that burglars absconded with $3.9 billion worth of victims’ property. At the same time, “civil forfeiture” made off with $4.5 billion worth. The civil forfeiture statute was initially sold as a tool for coping with organized crime. It has morphed into crime wave in which police seize cash from individuals on the slimmest of pretexts and dare the owner to try to get it back through cumbersome and costly procedures. A favored tactic is to assert that any cash that a person may be carrying was obtained via criminal activity. As proof, police cite...

According to a Metropolitan Police Department alert, a shooting occurred at the corner of 13th and Pennsylvania Ave SE, and the suspect fled toward downtown D.C. in a blue or black car. The meeting, and most recent shooting, came on the heels of what some calling the “Reign of Terror” that occurred Wednesday night. Five people were mugged in the neighborhood within...

Connor MacCalister had told police she was angry with life and had gone to the store to kill "several random people." According to court records, she acknowledged being "off (her) meds" when she killed 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau in August at a Shaw's supermarket in Saco, where they both lived. MacCalister, 31, entered her guilty plea in October over the objection of her lawyer, who wanted to use an insanity defense. MacCalister was...

    Donald Trump is taking heat on social media for a Sunday afternoon tweet of statistics purporting to show that the vast majority of murdered black people in the U.S. are killed by other black people. The tweet was apparently Trump’s response to a Twitter thread about support from white supremacists for the GOP front-runner. It also comes the day after a Black Lives Matter protester said he was physically and verbally assaulted at a Trump rally. The image Trump posted includes a list of “USA Crime Statistics ~ 2015.” The two that are highlighted are “Blacks Killed by Police ~~...

    The City of Baltimore trails only St. Louis in the rate of murders it has seen thus far this year. To address the carnage in these and other Democrat run cities, Donald Trump should support a new “Project Exile.” “Project Exile” was a tactic which bypassed local courts for trial in federal courtrooms when guns were involved. The gun toting criminals in Virginia’s capital City Richmond, never knew if they were facing local law enforcement or the full weight of the federal government until it was too late. Throughout the life of the project sometimes a coin flip in the...

    Sen Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has introduced legislation in the U.S. Senate to protect citizens from being criminalized for unknowingly disobeying regulations they didn't even know existed. So far, the effort has run into a wall of obfuscation and resistance typical of Washington. In light of this response, coming on the heels of similar ill-fated efforts at reform at the national level, attempts to address the issue at the state level take on added significance. At issue is the legal concept called "mens rea," the Latin term for "a guilty mind." It refers to a long-standing doctrine in the law that...

    Execution-style vengeance killing of nine-year old Chicago resident Tyshawn Lee The November 2nd execution-style vengeance killing of nine-year old Chicago resident Tyshawn Lee has been completely ignored by the Black Lives Matter movement. Likewise, his tragic death remains unacknowledged by so-called black “leaders” like the rabble-rousing Al Sharpton or fellow Chicagoan Jesse Jackson. Even the former Chicago community-organizer Barack Obama—and his pouty-faced “bring back our girls” wife Michelle—have interestingly chosen silence despite their polarizing, knee-jerk history of inserting themselves into the political discourse. Unlike, Trayvon Martin who garnered country-wide attention and outrage regarding his unfortunate fate—a life cut short by...

    Even though Michigan took steps this year to restrict civil asset forfeiture and require more disclosure of the practice, an authority in the field says the state has not gone nearly far enough. The just-released second edition of the "Policing for Profit" report by the Institute for Justice gives Michigan a grade of D- and ranks it 44th in the nation for practices it uses under a state-federal forfeiture program. In Michigan, civil forfeiture laws allow police agencies and sheriffs to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from items their officers seize, one item that contributed to the state's poor...

One of the attackers was last night named by French media as Mostefai Ismaël Omar, 29, from Courcouronnes, in Essonne.

    With Saturday afternoon's fatal stabbing of a 27-year-old man in West Baltimore, the city's annual homicide count hit 300 for the first time since 1999, pushing the city across a deadly threshhold once considered a remnant of the past. The latest killing in Carroll-South Hilton continued a surge of violence -- more than a killing per day -- that began in late April following Freddie Gray's death and the accompanying unrest. The spate of violence, along with the city's population decline over time, now has Baltimore poised to hit another sobering milestone: the deadliest year on a per capita basis....

    In California, some gun smugglers use FedEx. In Chicago, smugglers drive just across the state line into Indiana, buy a gun and drive back. In Orlando, Fla., smugglers have been known to fill a $500 car with guns and send it on a ship to crime rings in Puerto Rico. In response to mass shootings in the last few years, more than 20 states, including some of the nation's biggest, have passed new laws restricting how people can buy and carry guns. Yet the effect of those laws has been significantly diluted by a thriving underground market for firearms brought...

Only 27 percent of voters said they thought Clinton did nothing wrong, including a surprisingly low 49 percent of Democrats.

Earlier in the week, I cited Politico's report that investigators have "stepped up" their efforts by conducting additional interviews regarding internal State Department concerns over classified data security while Clinton was operating her unsecure private server.  Fox's scoop comes on the heels of their previous revelation that the probe was focusing on a "gross negligence" provision within the federal Espionage Act.  Additional evidence of Clinton's negligence was made public last week.  What this latest leak indicates is that the inquiry's scope now includes...

    "This is the biggest sham they are trying to sell the American people." This actually makes perfect sense when you think about it. Obama doesn’t take seriously the threats from external forces like Russia or Iran, having shown himself more than capable of simply dismissing any danger because that’s a better fit for his ideology than to admit the threat and take responsibility for actually doing something about it. So why wouldn’t he do the same thing when it comes to threats inside the country from our own citizens? It’s one thing if they’re those scary right-wing militia types who...

    First of all, I apologize for the vanity, but this is a subject that has been touched on inside the forum over the years briefly. Given the current political season and the focus on the illegals in our midst, I would like to bring this up again. We discuss the use of E-verify and other eligibility sites for employers to use, but we have a governmental enemy working against us: The Social Security Administration itself. Of course, the problem has gotten much worse during the current regime, and local SSA offices have been given their marching orders for years now....

    --SNIP-- Her story highlights the brutal realities of human trafficking in Mexico and the United States, an underworld that has destroyed the lives of tens of thousands of Mexican girls like Karla. Human trafficking has become a trade so lucrative and prevalent, that it knows no borders and links towns in central Mexico with cities like Atlanta and New York. U.S. and Mexican officials both point to a town in central Mexico that for years has been a major source of human trafficking rings and a place where victims are taken before being eventually forced into prostitution.

    Texas lawmakers made carrying a concealed weapon in campus buildings legal as of next August, but opponents are already trying to forestall enforcement by creating gun-free zones. The resistance comes as similar measures are being debated in Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. Texas is among eight states that allow concealed carrying of weapons on public college campuses. The other states are Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Utah and Wisconsin, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

It goes on to argue that a person's military service should be factored into a possible sentence, particularly...

    US Attorney General Loretta Lynch has decreed that the Department of Justice will no longer use the term "juvenile delinquent" to describe youthful lawbreakers. The new term to be used is "justice involved youth." "Juvenile delinquent has too negative a connotation," Lynch said. "Both words are demeaning. The word 'juvenile' is frequently used to convey an impression of immaturity. To call someone juvenile is, by itself, insulting. Similarly, the word 'delinquent' is judgmental. It communicates a message of wrongful behavior." "The new terminology is more positive sounding," she continued. "A justice involved youth does not stigmatize an individual. It just...

A day after assuming office as secretary of state, Clinton signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement that laid out criminal penalties for "any unauthorized disclosure" of classified information. Experts have guessed that Clinton signed such an agreement, but a copy of her specific contract, obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute through an open records request and...
