    Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, also known as Zhen Cheng, was arrested after arriving at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. A naturalized U.S. citizen, he began working for the CIA as a case officer in 1994 and maintained a top-secret clearance, according to a Justice Department announcement. The department alleges that Mr. Lee and his family left Hong Kong to return to the U.S. While traveling back to the United States, Mr. Lee’s family stayed in hotels in Hawaii and Virginia, where FBI agents conducted court-authorized searches of Lee’s room and luggage, the Justice Department said.

    There are dangerous hate groups in America. So a group called the Southern Poverty Law Center promises to warn us about them. They release an annual list of hate groups in America. The media cover it, but John Stossel says they shouldn't. It's a scam. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who grew up Muslim in Somalia and suffered female genital mutilation — as an "anti-Muslim extremist." Just because she now speaks out against radical Islam. They also list the conservative Family Research Council as a "hate group." That listing led a man to go to...

    If there’s one thing I despise about politics today, it’s the very apparent double standard when it comes to the word “justice.” As reported by the Washington Examiner, “President Trump tweeted Tuesday there’s a double standard in the government’s treatment of Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin, pointing to Kristian Saucier, a former Navy sailor jailed for taking six photos inside a submarine. Petty Officer Saucier served 11 years in the U.S. Navy aboard a nuclear submarine. He plead guilty to the accused offense, he never attempted to shirk responsibility and accepted being held accountable. Now, President Trump invokes...

    Accused cop killer Luis Bracamontes repeatedly interrupted the opening day of his murder trial Tuesday with a barrage of insults and profanity, prompting Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White to remove the jury briefly. “I wish I had killed more of the mother-------,” Bracamontes boasted to the jury as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the 2014 crime spree that killed two area deputies. “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me...There’s no need for a f------ trial,” he added. That was the latest of several outbursts from the defendant Tuesday, who has...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | January 16, 2018 | by Chris Strohm and Greg Farrell, Bloomberg
    The Justice Department's decision to give access to documents about FBI investigations to congressional Republicans risks exposing sensitive sources or material and poses a critical early test for bureau Director Christopher Wray, current and former U.S. law enforcement officials say. Some officials view the department as capitulating to a small group of Republicans who are intent on helping President Donald Trump undermine the integrity of the FBI and, by extension, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump or any of his associates helped Russia interfere in the 2016 election. It's the latest setback for a law enforcement agency that...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that President Donald Trump would not apologize after his reported comment about not accepting immigrants from “shithole countries.” “The president hasn’t said he didn’t use strong language, and this is an important issue. He’s passionate about it. He’s not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system,” Sanders said in a brief conversation with reporters outside of the White House. The Associated Press, CNN, and CBS News detailed Sanders’ response to the ongoing controversy over the president’s comment. On Friday, Trump said that the reported comment was “not the language...

    SEATTLE - A longtime activist for illegal immigrants in the Northwest says she herself is now facing deportation. Maru Mora-Villalpando, a native of Mexico City who has been in the U.S. for more than 25 years, said Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has given her a notice to appear before an immigration judge. She says she believes ICE is targeting her because of her activism. She leads an organization called Northwest Detention Center Resistance, which was created in 2014 when detainees at the privately run immigration detention facility in Tacoma began a series of hunger strikes to protest...

    The Daily Californian (Student Paper) ^ | January 16, 2018 | Editorial Board
    The UC Berkeley administration’s reaction to undocumented junior Luis Mora’s detainment by Border Patrol proves that the campus doesn’t give undocumented students the support they need. Within days of Mora’s detainment on Dec. 30 in San Diego, campus immigrant rights organization Rising Immigrant Scholars through Education, or RISE at Berkeley, launched a massive social media campaign to call for Mora’s release. Now is the time for public action, and the UC Berkeley administration — which has repeatedly expressed support for the undocumented community — should proudly lead the charge. Mora’s detainment isn’t an isolated incident; under President Donald Trump’s administration,...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to...

    Los Angeles could join New York City and other California cities in a lawsuit targeting Exxon Mobil for supposedly contributing to global warming and rising sea levels. Two Los Angeles city council members want the city to use the courts to fleece fossil-fuel producers to mitigate the effects of global warming. They are hoping to join the likes of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who announced earlier this month that his city will take Exxon to court.

    Obama's backing for the Arab Spring, pandering to Iran and mismanagement of Iraq helped create the ISIS monster. And now Samantha Power, Obama's UN emissary, is revising history while trying to blame Trump. Initially on Maliki, then on Abadi in Iraq, to be bringing in the Sunnis, and to be ensuring that we’re doing away with the virus that gave rise to ISIS in the first place. Where is the respect for human rights? Where are the processes for accountability, so you can distinguish real ISIS people from ordinary Sunni who got caught up in a firefight? And it was our...

    The Supreme Court faces a test of the authority of politicians to use police to silence their critics.If a citizen speaks at a public meeting and says something a politician doesn’t like, can the citizen be arrested, cuffed, and carted off to the hoosegow? Suppose that, during this fraught encounter, the citizen violates some law—even by accident, even one no one has ever heard of, even one dug up after the fact—does that make her arrest constitutional? Deyshia Hargrave, meet Fane Lozman. You need to follow his case. Hargrave is a language arts teacher in Kaplan, Louisana. She was arrested...

    The sale of a substantial portion of US uranium reserves to a Russian company controlled by Vladimir Putin – who openly desires to control the world uranium market – never could have been approved by the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS), including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then-AG Eric Holder, if the dimensions of the scandal being investigated by the FBI and Justice Department had been known. That the scandal was hidden from the public is itself scandalous. Last Friday, an 11-count indictment was unsealed, naming: …a former DoD intelligence analyst

    Typically, the Black Star Group, a black Muslim front group, is busy blaming whites for black children failing in schools, but now they’ve added economic segregation. In the Jan. 8, 2018, issue of the San Francisco-based newspaper BayView, the group’s founder, Phillip Jackson, wrote a commentary titled: “Celebrate Black History Month By circulating black dollars in black communities.” The reason for his jeremiad is his opinion that “Black people are on [their] own”; i.e., the white government won’t help them. I say, if only that were the truth. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on blacks since President Nixon...

    A British-born man living in Waterford for the past decade has pleaded guilty to charges of receiving or sending money intended for terrorist group Islamic State. Hassan Bal, who is an Irish and British passport holder, on Friday pleaded guilty to the two charges at Waterford Circuit Court. He has been in police custody since May 2017. Bal, 26, was charged with a number of offenses last year, appearing in court on Friday to face two charges relating to the providing of funding to the so-called Islamic State organization. On October 2, 2015, Bal allegedly sent €400 ($487) to Bosnia,...

Bill Clinton was Haiti’s devil incarnate.” *snip* A man in the video explains: It’s more than true. The money is more than $6 billion. You see, after...

Paul Sperry of The New York Post first ripped Robert Mueller. “If Mueller knew Steele lied to the FBI & still used him as a source in his probe (he reportedly sent his team over to London for a dossier briefing) — like he ignored his senior investigators Strzok’s & Page’s anti-Trump bias –then Mueller’s judgment is even worse than imagined,” Sperry tweeted.

    Congressional investigations into the Trump dossier have so far been focused on the FBI and Justice Department. They still are, but now investigators are also looking into a possible Obama State Department role in the collection and dissemination of sensational and still-unverified allegations against candidate Donald Trump gathered by a former British spy working for the Hillary Clinton campaign. In addition to having contacts in the Obama Justice Department and FBI, that former spy, Christopher Steele, was also well-connected with the Obama State Department. A book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, "Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money,...
