  • Gorsuch Puts Down The Left’s Serial Rapist

    04/27/2017 4:44:48 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 67 replies ^ | 4-27-2017 | Daniel Greenfield
    A few months after lefty activists crowded Washington D.C. for the Women's March, activists from many of those same organizations went to bat for a serial rapist and murderer. Ledell Lee's victims were all women.  While he was on trial for the rape and murder of Debra Reese, the testimony of three of his rape victims was presented. Lee had made a habit of knocking on doors and asking to borrow some tools to see whether a woman's husband might be home. Debra Reese called her mother and told her that a strange man had tried to borrow some tools....

    Mexican cartel bosses have a history of seeking a safe haven in the United States in an apparent effort to avoid dying at the hands of their rivals or having to shoot it out with Mexican military forces. U.S. law enforcement officers arrested several key cartel bosses after they sought refuge in Texas.

    So many times through the years I have heard supervisors say, "You have to pick your battles." Over and over again, these people have had to decide which issues were worth a fight and which ones, in the long run, would not get the overall agenda in place. The border wall and security is THE issue for this nation's survival. Without it, illegal aliens pour in from Latin America AND all over the world and those coming in that way will vote Democrat, leftist, liberal, immorality 99% of the time, as will their offspring. Another law that MUST be changed...

    For the more than 3 million Americans infected with potentially deadly hepatitis C, a relatively new cocktail of drugs is considered a miracle cure. The problem: Gilead Sciences’ list price is $84,000 for a 12-week treatment. From Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals jacking up the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to $750 in a single day to Mylan’s allergy-fighting EpiPens rising from $100 to $600 in just a few years, Americans are getting sick of astonishing drug prices. It’s why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both used their presidential campaigns to roast Big Pharma. In a primary-season rally in...

    A city in Washington is suing a drug manufacturer over claims it let OxyContin flood the black market sparking an addiction epidemic in the community. Everett, north of Seattle, is suing Purdue Pharma which makes the opioid pain medication. The city, under mayor Ray Stephanson, says it has already spent millions combating OxyContin and heroin abuse after deaths from painkillers and heroin use spiked and street crimes increased. In an unusual case, city chiefs are claiming that Purdue Pharma knowingly allowed pills to be funneled into the black market and the city of about 108,000.

    As legalisation spreads across the US, the web is lighting up with advice on how to mix marijuana and motherhood. She looks like a model suburban housewife, beaming into the camera as she sifts through a pink leather handbag, explaining to her youtube viewers that she carries her children's inhalers with her at all times because "you gotta be prepared". Inside Kathryn VahEaton's own "medicine bag", though, is a pink pipe and a set of dainty purple pots-where she stores her stash. To her fans she is the Stoner Mom, a 34-year-old mother of four from Colorado whose blogs, videos...

    This Thursday, April 20, marks the annual unofficial holiday celebrated around the world by marijuana users. And this year, "4/20" will be observed while America's burgeoning legal cannabis industry sits at a crossroads. Public opinion polls indicate that support for marijuana legalization is at an all-time high in the U.S., and November's election saw four new states vote to legalize recreational cannabis while another four states legalized medical pot. As a result, a majority of the U.S. population lives in a state with some access to legal marijuana. However, cannabis remains illegal on the federal level, and the new administration...

    Kerianne Gardner of Albuquerque had read the obituary I wrote about my 23-year-old son, Devin Glenn, when it ran in the Journal on March 14, nearly a week after he had stuck a syringe of heroin into his arm, a habit he had managed to keep from me for nearly four months until his death later that day revealed his secret. Gardner was a regular reader of obituaries, she told me. As a stylist who does hair for older clients, she sometimes came across names she remembered. She hadn’t known Devin, had never heard his name. But after she read...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents are once again sounding the alarm about miles of border being left wide open and unsecured. Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained a document showing a Havre Sector Border Patrol manager knowingly issuing orders to leave 40 miles of border open and unpatrolled. Obama holdovers in the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency are continuing with the same careless disregard in the Trump Administration that they did under former resident Obama, according to Border Patrol agents. Breitbart Texas has the specific order that was given to the agents signed by the Obama-holdover manager. The order demands that agents...

    Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Sunday that marijuana is "not a factor" in the war on drugs and that solving the nation's drug problem does not involve "arresting a lot of users." Kelly, appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," was discussing his work to stop the flow of drugs into the United States from Central America and Mexico when host Chuck Todd asked whether legalizing marijuana would help or hurt his work. "Yeah, marijuana is not a factor in the drug war," Kelly responded, adding later: "It's three things. Methamphetamine. Almost all produced in Mexico. Heroin. Virtually...
  • Nation’s first public needle vending machine for drug users debuts in Las Vegas

    Las Vegas health officials are turning to a familiar piece of equipment – the vending machine – into a first-in-the-nation experiment to automate the dispensing of clean needles for intravenous drug users. The program is a joint effort between the Southern Nevada Health District, the Nevada AIDS Research and Education Society and the private Trac-B Exchange company, which developed the machine. The idea is that making clean needles and other gear available will reduce the spread of bloodborne infections among drug users who would otherwise share the injection rigs.
  • Government Burglars

    The legitimate purpose of government? It is to protect citizens from force and fraud, to defend individuals against violent and criminal attacks on their persons and property, and, beyond that, to leave them at liberty to pursue their own happiness. Tyranny, conversely, is what we call governments that engage in force and fraud, committing violent and criminal acts against innocent people — even when those crimes are cloaked in the costume of legality. In these United States, at this modern moment in time, which is it? Do we live in a legitimately governed country or an abject tyranny? Or is...

    A university lecturer has been jailed after buying a cocktail of drugs over the "dark web" that led to the death of his friend. Dr Harry Purser purchased a range of illegal substances including cocaine, ketamine and two brands of psycho-active drugs on the internet using bitcoins. The Cambridge graduate then took the drugs and drink with Patrick Marran, old school friend, at his flat. But when Purser woke late the next morning, he found his friend dead in bed and dialled 999. The Nottingham Trent University psychology lecturer is now starting a six-month jail term after a judge told...
  • CORRUPTION: Top Mexican Official Paid to Tip Off Cartel on Probe

    Wednesday, U.S. prosecutors have let information loose regarding an embarrassing and horrific situation involving Mexican police. New documents, made public today, state that the commander for the Mexican law enforcement’s intelligence-sharing unit was giving pertinent information to the Beltran Leyva drug cartel in exchange for monetary kickbacks. The AP reports: Ivan Reyes Arzate was named in a U.S. district court indictment, just hours after Mexico’s federal police revealed an unnamed agent had been charged with obstructing an investigation. What Mexican police commissioner Manelich Castilla did not reveal was that Ivan Reyes Arzate, the officer charged, was the commander of the...

    A new and lethal strain of synthetic heroin resulted in five overdose deaths in Minnesota this year, and officials believe another five undetermined deaths will also be linked to the drug. The five cases are the first confirmed in-state deaths caused by carfentanil, a drug from China that is 100 times more potent than the already dangerous fentanyl. Carfentanil is federally approved to immobilize large animals such as elephants for surgery, and two salt-sized specks of the opioid can cause instant death, a local emergency room doctor said Thursday. ... Investigators are working locally and nationally to find the source...
