    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have accumulated at least $6.3 billion in more than 1,300 obscure spending accounts akin to slush funds that are essentially beyond congressional, media and public scrutiny. The accounts – which were created through EPA’s Superfund program – are not technically secret because the agency officially acknowledges their existence. But getting concrete details about deposits and expenditures is extremely difficult. The EPA deposited more than $6.3 billion into an estimated 1,308 special accounts between 1990 and 2015, according to the agency’s website, and has spent more than half of the total. The agency doesn’t publicly report...

Rick Sanchez argues with Republican Strategist Boris Epshteyn on the fallout (RIOT) following Donald Trump's Costa Mesa Rally last night.

    Danish police are being stretched by a migrant crime wave in capital Copenhagen as foreign outlaws “flock” to the city in ever greater numbers. Latest crime figures for 2015 obtained by Danish newspaper MetroXpress reveal that of 2,633 criminals who went before a judge, 2,049 were foreigners, some four fifths. This proportion — 78 per cent — is up from 65 per cent eight years ago. Although crime is low in Denmark compared to many other European countries, it has struggled with problems imported from abroad through Europe’s open borders Schengen agreement. ... These latest figures will add credence to...

    Roger Clegg at The Corner spotted this one: I’m not sure, but I suspect that once upon a time “juvenile delinquent” was a liberal euphemism for “young criminal.” As often happens, however, eventually even the euphemism is thought to be too harsh, and so a better one has to be found. And so one has: This Obama-administration press release yesterday talked a lot about “justice-involved youth.” And so it does: In an effort to help young people involved in the justice system find jobs and housing, the U.S. Departments of Justice and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced $1.75...

The move is expected to add more than 200,000 Democrats to the state’s voter rolls. “Ours is a government of, by, and for the people,” McAuliffe said. “This means all the people. For better or for worse, criminals are part of society. As members of society they are entitled to the human right to vote, to choose who will represent their interests in the halls of government.” The Governor brushed aside Republican objections, calling...

    President Obama’s weekly remarks Hello, everybody. Today, there are some 2.2 million people behind bars in America. Millions more are on parole or probation. All told, we spend $80 billion taxpayer dollars each year to keep people locked up. Many are serving unnecessarily long sentences for non-violent crimes. Almost 60 percent have mental health problems. Almost 70 percent were regular drug users. And as a whole, our prison population is disproportionately black and Latino.

    An attempt by President Obama to promote his 'My Brother's Keeper' initiative, which aims to keep youths of color out of trouble, came to a farcical end when rapper Rick Ross's ankle bracelet - which he received on a kidnapping and assault charge - went off. Obama had invited a bevy of hip-hop heavyweights, including Niki Minaj, Common, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and DJ Khaled, to the meeting at the White House Friday. But none of them - least of all Ross himself - expected the ankle bracelet to interrupt the president, according to TMZ.

    The government should consider individuals’ financial resources when setting the bond amount for aliens in removal proceedings, the ACLU argues. In a class lawsuit filed this month, the ACLU Foundation of Southern California and the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project say the federal government sets unacceptably high bond amounts for foreign nationals in deportation proceedings because it fails to consider their ability to pay. The result, the ACLU argues, is lengthier incarceration rates for poorer aliens.

Lewis made the point that such deaths are more frequent and quantitatively greater than those Black men killed by white police officers. What he said is true. I support the Black Lives Matter movement in it’s awakening the national conscience to numerous instances of lethal force used by police in killing black men. Most of such...

    The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is warning landlords they could face discrimination charges for turning down prospective tenants with criminal records — if the decision has an “unjustified discriminatory effect.” A Republican senator described new HUD guidance issued this week as yet another move by the Obama administration to support convicted criminals. The 10-page document states that “where a policy or practice that restricts access to housing on the basis of criminal history has a disparate impact on individuals of a particular race, national origin, or other protected class, such policy or practice is unlawful under the...

    Even being convicted of homicide isn’t enough to ensure illegal immigrants are detained by federal agents, the government’s top deportation official said in a letter to Congress released Monday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldana said neither Obama administration policy nor federal law required her agency to detain Edwin Mejia, an illegal immigrant who arrived as part of the surge of unaccompanied children from Central America, after he was charged with vehicular homicide in Nebraska. Still, she said her officers should have taken the initiative to detain him of their own volition, and she said she’s notified all...

I was talking about the concept of white privilege -- the belief that being white comes with unearned advantages and everyday perks that its recipients are often unaware of. I asked a white retiree if he believed in the existence of white privilege. He said no, but there was another type of privilege he wanted to talk about: "Black privilege."...

    In ancient times, it was known as "Tribute" - a city or town paying barbarians not to attack and destroy their homes. Sometimes it worked, and the barbarians went away. But more often than not, the barbarians happily took the tribute and then attacked and looted the city anyway. The city government of Washington, D.C. is looking to revive the practice by paying criminals up to perhaps $9,000 a year not to commit any crimes.

Lawmakers described the security agency as operating "in chaos" and expressed frustration with Obama administration officials as they informed the House Oversight Committee about a range of security shortfalls that continue to endanger the nation's 450 commercial airports. TSA's inability to properly screen and track employees has been well documented for years. However, the administration...

    With the presidential race the focus of most of the media attention, a major division among Senate Republicans over so-called "criminal justice reform" has gotten little attention. But the liberal media are now beginning to notice that conservatives are mounting a campaign to stop a piece of legislation that has been advertised as a major part of President Obama's left-wing legacy. The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (S. 2123) would release thousands of criminals back on the streets at a time of rising crime rates, in the name of reducing what liberals call "mass incarceration."

In 2012, The Sierra Club took in $97.8 million with its Foundation getting another $47.2 million. For example, despite Greenpeace celebrating "the holidays" by running a gift shop with environmentally-themed holiday cards, the organization uses the season to solicit donations of up to $200,000. These money-making methods allowed Greenpeace to spend $260 million dollars in 2011. The same year, the Environmental Defense Fund listed $111.9 million in earnings, the Natural Resources...

The study stated, “Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation.” The professors who authored the study came from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University. The study found that felons registered Democratic over Republican by a six-to-one margin in some states, including New York, where 61.5% are Democrats and only 9% GOP. Another fact discovered was that 73% of the felons who would vote would vote Democrat. Three states where the state government...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said late Monday that most violent criminals also identify as Democrats. "Here is the simple and undeniable fact – the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats," he said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that evening. "There is a reason why for years the Democrats have been viewed as soft on crime," Cruz continued. "They go in and appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals. "They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate added. "Why? "The Democrats know that convicted felons tend to...

    Kyri Viehman came out of the Michael's Craft store after buying Christmas decorations in Fenton, Missouri, to find a $100 bill tucked under her windshield wiper blade. Unfortunately for her, the bill was a fake and part of a scam to lure potential victims out of their cars to rob them. In the case of Viehman, it wasn't until after a few minutes of driving down the road that she did what most people would do: get out of the car and focus on not letting that $100 bill blow away. A note on the fake bill said: "Ha you...

    As his first secretary of state, she was part of the team that botched the wars in Iraq and Syria and helped birth the Islamic terrorism now rattling the world. The slaughter in Paris and fresh threats against America make it urgent that she erase her fingerprints from the calamity. That's impossible, so she settled for putting some daylight between herself and Obama.

    Esteban Torres was 3 years old when his father was sent back to Mexico by U.S. immigration authorities. "One day, my father didn't come home," remembers Torres, who lived with his family in a mining camp in Arizona at the time. "My brother and I were left without a father. We never saw him again." Torres, 85, who went on to become a congressman representing the Pico Rivera area, was part of a generation of people whose lives were changed dramatically by large-scale deportation campaigns during the 1930s, '40s and '50s in which millions of Mexican nationals were rounded up...

    Cleveland has a huge reduction in complaints about police misconduct. The reason? Accusers now know that police officers are wearing body cameras. "Larry Jones, who is overseeing the body camera implementation for the city, told members of City Council’s Safety Committee that between January and September 30, the department’s Office of Professional Standards received 225 complaints against officers – down from 374 during the same period last year." The cameras have been fully deployed to front-line officers in all the five districts since September. Since then there have been much fewer complaints about police misconduct. The main reason? Suspects are...
  • Center for American Progress kerfuffle accidentally reveals Palestinians were advising

    Oops! As a byproduct of an internal dispute at the far-left think-tank the Center for American Progress (CAP), it has been revealed that Palestinian advisers were brought into the Ferguson, Missouri demonstrations to advise the rioters. Exactly who paid for them to apparently fly halfway around the world (or otherwise build "strong relationships") and stick their noses into an American political dispute is unclear, though it has been bandied about that George Soros has played a major role in funding the #BlackLivesMatter movement that is ginning up black anger, and presumably 2016 election turnout for Hillary.

    Coinciding with the mass release of federal inmates, the Obama administration is spending $1.7 million on a “re-entry program” to ease the transition from prison and ordering public housing facilities not to reject tenants with criminal records.The goal is to reduce barriers to public housing, employment and educational opportunities by promoting rehabilitation and reintegration for the formerly incarcerated, the feds explain in an announcement. A key component of the program is a joint venture between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help public housing residents expunge or seal their criminal records....

    A number of homeschool parents in Florida have been ordered by a public school district to register their children in classes within three days or face “criminal prosecution” under state law. A meeting within the next week likely will determine whether school officials will face a lawsuit in response to the threat. The issue is being addressed by the Home School Legal Defense Association, which said its members in the Santa Rosa County School District received letters demanding information that parents are not required to provide under state law. The information included Social Security number, race and grade level. The...

    --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.
