  • Citizen pays New Yorkers $25 an hour to livestream crime scenes

    07/26/2021 1:13:17 PM PDT · by algore · 5 replies
    Want to make $200 a day in New York City? Rush to the scene of a murder, a three-alarm fire or a traffic accident — then pull out your phone and start filming. That’s the pitch from Citizen, a controversial neighborhood watch app that’s quietly hiring New Yorkers to livestream crime scenes and other public emergencies in an apparent effort to encourage more ordinary citizens to do the same, The Post has learned. Citizen has raised $133 million from high-profile backers like Peter Thiel, as well as the Silicon Valley venture firms Sequoia Capital and Greycroft, by promising real-time safety...

    Students and other young people walking around the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C., struggled to say whether they were "proud" to be American ahead of 4th of July weekend. Ophelie Jacobson, a reporter with Campus Reform — a conservative news site and higher-education watchdog — walked around Georgetown asking young people in the area whether they were proud to be American and whether the United States is the greatest country in the world. "I feel sorry for those young students," Lily Tang Williams, an American citizen who immigrated from China, told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday in response to the...
  • Former U.S. Marshals Director on ‘Defund the Police’: ‘Organized Crime Will Come in and Seize the Moment’

    Stacia Hylton, former director of the U.S. Marshals Service, described the “defund the police” campaign pushed by Democrats and the left as an opening for organized crime, offering her remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Hylton warned that self-censorship on matters of politics prevents Americans from engaging in productive discourse towards understanding and addressing social and economic issues.
  • Vanity, I guess: Is it "wrong" for an American citizen to exercise their 1st Amendment freedom, and refuse to partake of Christianity?

    10/04/2020 6:43:19 AM PDT · by Terry L Smith · 79 replies
    Dear Readers, I post this question: "Is it "wrong" for an American citizen to exercise their 1st Amendment freedom, and refuse to partake of Christianity?" Why would it be 'wrong" for them? What makes it 'wrong'? How would you address that, without stepping on their 1st Amendment right? Do you see the 1st Amendment as a stumbling block for Christianity? Do you think American citizens who make this choice should have 1st Amendment rights? If not, why? Thank you for reading these questions, even if you just shake your head, and move on.
  • Natural Born Citizens: Understanding Who Can Be POTUS in a Nation Beset By Divided Loyalties

    Possibly another thing the Founding Fathers could have been a little clearer on: Exactly what constitutes a "natural born citizen" to determine eligibility to be POTUS. The last time this was sort of a big deal was when Arnold might have run for prez. (He's probably too content to smoke stogies in his hot tub to bother these days.) But exactly who qualifies as a citizen has huge ramifications for out country. Know as much about the matter as we do after reading Natural Born Citizens: Understanding Who Can Be POTUS in a Nation Beset By Divided Loyalties.

    It had already been a long and emotional day for the Virginia Beach man when he walked into a 7-Eleven store to buy a Big Gulp. He’d just been involved in a heated argument with his stepfather, and police had been called to the house. After talking to officers, it took him more than an hour to walk back to his conversion van, which was parked near his work. The vehicle wasn’t working at the time, but he’d been living in it for a few weeks. Once he got there, he realized his canteen was empty. “I said, ‘Well, it...

    CNBC ^ | 2/14/19 | Berkeley Lovelace Jr.
    Billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist Richard Branson said Thursday that taxing the rich "makes sense," arguing the extremely affluent have a responsibility to tackle some of the biggest problems in the world, including wealth disparities. "People like myself are incredibly fortunate," the Virgin Group founder told CNBC's Morgan Brennan in an interview. "I suspect there should be higher taxes for the wealthy around the world and I don't think they would object to that." Branson — with a net worth of $4.1 billion, according to Forbes — is part of the growing circle of elite business leaders questioning wealth disparity in...

    Three people who operated multimillion-dollar birth-tourism businesses in Southern California were arrested Thursday in the biggest federal criminal probe ever to target the thriving industry, in which pregnant women come to the United States to give birth so their children will become American citizens. The businesses coached their clients to deceive United States immigration officials and pay indigent rates at hospitals to deliver their babies, even though many of the clients were wealthy, investigators said. Some Chinese couples were charged as much as $100,000 for a birth-tourism package that included housing, nannies and shopping excursions to Gucci. A tip sheet...

    Library of Congress ^ | 1783 | rustbucket
    I ran across a couple of documents relative to the meaning of Natural Born Citizen, a concept that was a matter of serious discussion in recent presidential elections. The first of these were 1783 notes by Thomas Jefferson on the meaning of "natural subjects", i.e., when people fit the definition of natural subjects of a country and when they did not. Jefferson’s notes were in part to answer the status of a lady’s son with respect to whether he could inherit property in England. The second item I found was a 1790 US law that defines people born outside of...

    Hope. Change. Jihad. Iyman Faris, 49, was sentenced in 2003 for aiding and abetting al-Qaida by scoping out the iconic New York bridge as a part of a plot to cut through the cables supporting the structure. He had met with Osam bin Laden in Afghanistan and worked with 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Faris is set to be released on Dec. 23, 2020, but a court filing last year in a U.S. District Court argued that Faris lied on immigration papers and that his terrorist affiliations demonstrated a lack of commitment to the Constitution.

    A B.C. father is blaming Canada's citizenship rules for keeping his kids separated from him and his home country. Patrick Chandler was stunned to learn despite being a Canadian citizen, he wasn’t able to pass on his citizenship to his four-year-old and nine-year-old children, who were born in China while he was working there. He attempted to bring his kids to Canada but was stopped at the last minute by Canadian officials. “(The worker) starts stamping the documents and says at the very last second, ‘Oh wait a second. You weren’t born in Canada and neither was your daughter. We...

    Alabama has reportedly filed a lawsuit challenging the federal government’s practice of counting undocumented immigrants in its official Census Bureau population counts. The state filed a lawsuit in federal court Monday arguing that the new census numbers for 2020 will result in Alabama losing a congressional seat and a vote in the Electoral College to a state with a bigger “illegal alien population,” according to the Associated Press.The state of Alabama and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) are the plaintiffs in the suit. Citizens and noncitizens with a residence in the U.S. are included in official census and apportionment counts.

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is leading a multistate lawsuit to block the Trump administration from adding a question about citizenship to the 2020 Census. The 54-page complaint filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York was brought by 16 other states, Washington, D.C., six cities and the bipartisan United States Conference of Mayors. In announcing the lawsuit Tuesday in New York City, Schneiderman called the citizenship question dangerous and damaging. “This is a blatant effort to undermine the Census and prevent the Census Bureau from carrying out its clear constitutional mandate,” he...

    It's a federal crime not to answer census questions or to give false information. But here's why you shouldn't worry about being prosecuted. Article I, Section 2, of the Constitution requires the enumeration of people in the U.S. every 10 years for the purpose of apportioning congressional representatives. The "Census Clause" also requires that representatives be apportioned among the states "according to their respective Numbers." Federal law provides that anyone who refuses to answer or willfully neglects to answer any of the questions in connection with any census or survey shall be fined a maximum of $100, or a maximum...

    A Utah police officer who was being attacked on Friday was saved by a passerby with a concealed pistol, officials said. The unidentified police officer confronted the attacker, identified as Paul Douglas Anderson, after spotting feet dangling from a donation bin in Springville, FOX13 Salt Lake City reported on Saturday. Anderson got out of the bin, but refused to remove his hands from his pocket. The officer ordered Anderson to remove his hands out of his pockets. Anderson eventually took his hands out of his pants’ pockets and began repeatedly punching the officer in the face.
