    On Friday, as Joe Biden bumbled his way around the G7 Summit, his administration was hard at work dissembling more Trump-era immigration policies.During his first week in office, President Trump created the Victims of Immigration Crime and Engagement Office (VOICE) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). For the first time, victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens were given the acknowledgment and support they deserved.That support has now come to a screeching halt with the closing of VOICE.According to the AP, VOICE is to be replaced by the newly-created Victims Engagement and Services Line (VESL). VESL’s focus is to...

    The Biden administration has dismantled and replaced a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office created during the Trump presidency to help victims of crimes committed by immigrants in a further break with his predecessor’s border policies. Trump launched VOICE (Victim Of Immigration Crime Engagement Office) in an executive order during his first week in office in 2017. VOICE "was created to acknowledge and serve the needs of crime victims and their families who have been affected by crimes committed by individuals under the investigative jurisdiction of ICE," the Department of Homeland Security says on its website. "I’ve had to hold...

    Facebook on Wednesday removed an interview with former President Donald Trump on his daughter-in-law’s Facebook page, drawing immediate backlash from conservatives renewing their ongoing complaints against Big Tech and Section 230 Lara Trump, who is married to Trump’s son, Eric, promoted an interview on Facebook and Instagram with the former president Wednesday for her show "The Right View.” Soon after, Facebook removed the interview because content posted “in the voice of Donald Trump” is not allowed while he remains banned from the platform, a Facebook employee said in a screenshot of an email posted by Lara Trump. (Facebook did not...

    President Donald Trump reminded the world Friday of the power of the America First movement who supported him for president. “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

    “The Simpsons” won’t have any repeats of Hank Azaria voicing Apu. The producers behind the show issued a statement Friday saying that from now on, its characters of color will be voiced by actors of color only. “Moving forward, ‘The Simpsons’ will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters,” the statement read. News of the decision comes less than an hour after Mike Henry announced he will no longer voice the character of Cleveland Brown on fellow Fox animated comedy “Family Guy.”

    Author and conservative writer Victor Davis Hanson appeared on Laura Ingraham's FOX News show on Wednesday to weigh in on the Kavanaugh saga and explain how the story of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, is falling apart. *snip* Hanson responded to those who say Ford is incredibly believable: VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Coming into where we are today, she wasn't able to locate the supposed assault or the time or the date and she had the early 80s, the mid-80s, the late 80s, she was a young teenager, a little bit older.

    Gateway Pundit has retweeted a report from that Hannity will be fired next week. True or not, it is a reminder that the number of conservative media outlets are few in number. My personal opinion is that the liberal world was shocked that conservative media was able to overcome their attempts at brainwashing during this last election. They thought they had it in the bag. They thought their voice was so powerful that it could not be overcome. Now it appears they are attempting to silence conservative voices one by one. Hannity is definitely one of those pro-Trump voices...

    HOUSTON – A pair of Salvadorian immigrants in the country illegally are accused of a gruesome series of crimes. The pair, alleged members of the criminal gang MS-13, are accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old and holding her for weeks. The suspects have been identified as 18-year-old Diego Alexander Hernandez-Rivera and 22-year-old Miguel Angel Alvarez-Flores. The teen eventually provided the evidence which links the men to the murder of another unidentified teen whose body was found dumped on the side of a Houston road two weeks ago. New details about how the teen was found shot to death in southwest Houston...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is spotlighting violence committed by immigrants, announcing the creation of a national office that can assist American victims of such crimes. He said during his address Tuesday night that the Homeland Security Department's Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement office will provide a voice for people ignored by the media and "silenced by special interests."Critics of the president's approach to immigration say the proposal is misguided, in part because studies show immigrants are less likely to commit crime than native-born U.S. citizens.A look at the proposal and what it aims to do: WHAT IS THE...

    On Tuesday, DHS Sec. Kelly issued an immigration memo shifting the U.S. government’s efforts and resources away from defending illegal aliens to helping their victims. The memo creates the “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement” (VOICE) office, which will act as “liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.” VOICE will address victims’ concerns and provide information regarding the enforcement actions and immigration status of the perpetrator. […] The memo also reallocates “any and all resources” currently used to advocate for illegal aliens and terminates “outreach and advocacy services” provided to them. …
  • How voice technology is transforming computing

    01/09/2017 12:10:59 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 20 replies
    ANY sufficiently advanced technology, noted Arthur C. Clarke, a British science-fiction writer, is indistinguishable from magic. The fast-emerging technology of voice computing proves his point. Using it is just like casting a spell: say a few words into the air, and a nearby device can grant your wish. The Amazon Echo, a voice-driven cylindrical computer that sits on a table top and answers to the name Alexa, can call up music tracks and radio stations, tell jokes, answer trivia questions and control smart appliances; even before Christmas it was already resident in about 4% of American households. Voice assistants are...

    The man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando on Friday night was not from that central Florida city, and "traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime," Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters Saturday. The gunman -- who authorities say fatally shot himself after shooting Grimmie -- was a 21-year-old white man, and had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, Mina said.

    Oh, the irony! Hillary Clinton, addressing an enthusiastic crowd in Los Angeles Thursday, did what she does when excited and enthusiastic: she yelled. But in this instance, her message was the bromide Democrats use whenever Republicans are winning an argument. “We’d be a lot better off if we actually talked to each other instead of yelling at each other.” The video, courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon, is a hoot: While I despise Hillary Clinton, I don’t think I am being unfair in pointing out that she has one of the most unpleasant voices ever in a public figure when...
