    Drug smugglers are being helped by the Democratic leaders in Congress who are trying to block funding for a border wall, says President Donald Trump. He is using Twitter to hit the Democrats as enablers for the criminal gangs that are smuggling deadly drugs into American cities and towns around the nation, and which are sending murderous MS-13 gang members into Americans’ neighborhoods. The strategy makes sense because it is true, and because many of the Americans who will vote in 2018 are increasingly concerned about the rising death toll from Mexican-supplied heroin and other drugs. In July 2016, Breitbart...

    Former President Barack Obama, on a two-day visit to Chicago that began Sunday, met privately with at-risk young men on the South Side to talk about gang violence, jobs skills and employment, a spokesman said. The meeting was with participants in a program created by Obama's longtime friend and former education secretary, Arne Duncan — and signified a return to Obama's roots as a community organizer 30 years ago on the South Side. "He said he grew up during that time because of the work he was doing," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said. Now the former president wants to solicit...

    Native American groups plan to make the Trump Hotel in Washington ground zero in their major protest next weekend against the president's energy and environment policies. Tribal groups will descend Thursday night on the grounds near the hotel to flash projections on its walls, dance, chant and give speeches ahead of Saturday's main event, the People's Climate March. The Indigenous Environmental Network, tribal nations, and aligned groups will hold the pre-protest rally at Trump's flagship hotel.

    The Mayor of Bekeley, Jesse Arreguin supports the far-left terrorist organization, BAMN according to his Facebook page. Perhaps this is why the police were told to stand down while ANTIFA threw glass bottles, M-80’s and bricks at Trump supporters in his city. Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of ‘BAMN’ AKA ‘By Any Means Necessary’, a violent organization affiliated with ANTIFA. Is this something that should be acceptable for a sitting Mayor? Below is a screenshot of Jesse Arreguin’s Facebook page. Click here for archive link.

    FOX Business ^ | April 19, 2017
    MS-13, a group that was started by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles in the 1980s, is known for its ruthless and violent tactics. Most of the founding members were from El Salvador and fled to the U.S. during the country’s civil war that lasted 12 years, from 1980-92. Since then the gang’s membership has ballooned to at least 10,000 members in the United States and more than 30,000 worldwide, according to the FBI and Treasury Department. “[MS-13] is one of the most dangerous and rapidly expanding criminal gangs in the world today,” Philip Holloway, a legal analyst and former...

    President Donald Trump and two of his key cabinet chiefs addressed the growing problem of the violent transnational MS-13 street gang on April 18, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions even saying the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly called MS-13 one of the greatest hazards the nation faces. And Trump sent out a tweet: “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!”

    Lawlessness, whether perpetrated by criminals in the streets, instigated by criminals who finance lawlessness, or legislate it from the halls of government is adverse to a civil society and will usually usher in chaos and destruction. In a brutal killing spree in Fresno recently, a black man, filled with hate and who had killed a 25-year-old Motel 6 security guard only days before, additionally murdered three other white men in what the city’s police chief stated was an attempt “to kill as many people as he could… and that is what he set out to do.” Fresno Chief of Police,...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the MS-13 gang could be designated as a terrorist organization. Asked by Fox News's Tucker Carlson on Tuesday whether he thinks the designation would be helpful, Sessions replied, “I think so, perhaps. I believe it could qualify for that." "There are rules that I guess the State Department does to establish that," he added. El Salvador's government has already designated MS-13 a terrorist group. Sessions called the gang "one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country." “We can devastate this gang. We’re going after them," he said. "We’re not going to...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (WABC) -- The four men who were found brutally murdered in a Long Island park Wednesday night have been identified, as their devastated families mourn the loss of their loved ones. Their mutilated bodies were found at the intersection of Lowell Avenue and Clayton Street in Central Islip, and authorities say one of them was so badly disfigured that he could only be identified through a tattoo. The youngest victim was just 16 years old. "He had a plastic bag over his head in order to suffocate him," said Yensi Fuentes, victim's cousin. "And from what...

    Khisser Davis-Papther was just being a 13-year-old kid, hanging with friends at a Nicetown takeout restaurant last month, when the group yelled something silly at a man on a passing bus, police say. But two older teens on the bus thought the younger kids were directing the wisecracks at them, according to Homicide Capt. James Clark. They got off the bus, walked into the Chinese restaurant, and one of them allegedly put a gun to Davis-Papther's head and pulled the trigger. "About as senseless as it gets," Clark said Monday, announcing the arrests of Tymear Johnson, 19, of Grays Ferry,...

    When advocates of immigration controls suggest that legal immigrants and their children "assimilate" to the United States, they usually mean acquiring a working knowledge of the U. S. Constitution. Unfortunately, it may be easier for these kids to acquire a working knowledge of gang warfare. "There are problems with assimilating to the gang culture," Paul Skerry, a political science professor from Boston College, said at a panel discussion organized by the Center for Immigration Statistics (CIS). "Where we live now is in a great neighborhood with great businesses but we hear the gunshots every night from the gangs," Juan Rangel,...

    Proponents and opponents of legalizing pot in Illinois are firing up their talking points after a proposal to legalize the sale of weed for recreational purposes sprouted up this week. Opponents of legalizing, regulating and taxing pot say they don’t care how much revenue it could generate for Illinois’ failed finances. Amendments to bills in the House and Senate this week would allow for the sale of recreational marijuana with a $50 tax per ounce. That would be on top of any sales tax. Supporters says it could generate hundreds of millions of dollars a year for the state. Democratic...

    SAN PABLO (KPIX 5) — An East Bay tattoo removal clinic says they’ve treated a record number of clients since the election. Some in the Latino community worry ICE agents will use their tattoos as an excuse to stop them and check immigration status. The number of customers has doubled. Typically, people go in to remove an ex-lover’s name or get rid of tattoos for job interviews. But the fear of deportation is a new reason. “A lot of people don’t want to be a moving target or even seen as a target,” says Nora Ruiz of the San Pablo...
