Now, Mats Järlström has joined with the national Institute for Justice to file a federal civil rights lawsuit against members of the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill.— The Democratic-controlled Illinois House has approved public funding for all abortions. The House voted 62-55 Tuesday to allow state-employee health insurance or Medicaid to cover abortions. Medicaid currently covers abortions in limited cases. The vote capped a two-hour debate and coincided with the Illinois Women March on Springfield for a "progressive agenda."

    The Hill ^ | 4/19/17 | By Max Greenwood
    The CIA and the FBI are looking for the person responsible for leaking top-secret material detailing CIA tools for surveilling smartphones and other devices, CBS News reported Wednesday. The leaker is believed to be an agency insider, CBS News reported, citing sources familiar with the probe. The manhunt is part of a joint agency investigation into a massive security breach that led to the release of thousands of documents by the website WikiLeaks. Many of the documents were held in a highly-secure part of the CIA, meaning that the leaker would most likely have to be someone in the agency....
  • EXCLUSIVE: Officials Defy Trump’s Promises: 40 Miles of Border Ordered Unpatrolled

    Breitbart Texas ^ | 18 Apr 2017 | Brandon Darby & Ildefonso Ortiz
    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...

    ""BREAKING: @BarackObama’s CIA Director John Brennan and His Allies Are Targeting Trump Supporters For Surveillance"" Barack Obama‘s CIA Director John O. Brennan targeted Trump supporters for enhanced surveillance, intelligence sources confirm to GotNews’ Charles C. Johnson. The surveillance took place between Trump’s election on November 8 and the inauguration in January, according to White House and House intelligence sources. The focus was on General Mike Flynn, billionaire Erik Prince, and Fox News host Sean Hannity — all of whom had close ties to Trump before and after the November election and had helped the future president with managing his new...

    Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell report over the weekend outing Obama's National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, as the person behind the unmasking of the identity of various members of Trump's team who were 'incidentally' surveilled during the 2016 campaign (see "Confirmed: Susan Rice "Unmasked" Trump Team"), a report which was subsequently confirmed by Eli Lake of Bloomberg earlier this morning, everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop. But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn't need a 'deep throat' within the NSA or CIA for...

    The Supreme Court on Monday denied the Trump administration's request to place a hold on litigation over former President Barack Obama's Waters of the U.S. rule so it can begin repealing it. The high court denied the administration's request without explanation. The Justice Department wanted the high court to hold off on hearing a case, National Association of Manufacturers v. Department of Defense et al, on the Environmental Protection Agency's water rule until it had time to review the regulation on its own, "paving the way for the elimination of this very destructive and horrible rule," President Trump said.

    This was making waves yesterday, after Evelyn Farkas admitted to Mika from The Morning Joe show that she strongly advised people 'on the hill' and in our intelligence agencies to tuck away intelligence regarding Russo-Trump ties for the sake of preservation, in an effort to protect it from the onerous bureaucracy she obviously finds to be deplorable. "Get as much intelligence as you can before President Obama leaves the administration," said Farkas in an interview yesterday on MSNBC. She was afraid the Trump people would gain access to their intelligence and whisk it away -- because they're all Russian spies,...

    Restoring Liberty by Joe Miller ^ | 3/26/17 | by Claire Bernish
    Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion — that’s trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded “T” — and no one, not even the Department of Defense, knows where it went or on what it was spent. Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and — fully 20 years later — stands obstinately orotund in never having complied. Because, as defense officials insist — summoning their best impudent adolescent — an audit would take too long and, unironically, cost too much.

    "Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command," Napolitano said. "He didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI, and he didn't use the Department of Justice." Instead, Napolitano said, Obama used GCHQ, a British intelligence and security organization that has 24-7 access to the NSA database. "There's no American fingerprints on this," Napolitano said. "What happened to the guy who ordered this? Resigned three days after Donald Trump was inaugurated."

    Nigerian welfare scam Jonn Lilyea | March 13, 2017 | 25 Comments Bobo sends a link to the story of an Arlington, Virginia woman, Helen Agbapuruonwu, who has been collecting welfare benefits for the last six years, while her husband, Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, was earning a seven figure income as a lawyer with the DC firm of Mayer Brown. She’s been arrested while folks believe that Fidelis, a Nigerian immigrant, has “fled the country and is somewhere in Africa.” Police say a six-month investigation into Helen Agbapuruonwu, 41, found that the mother of four had collected benefits like food stamps and...

Some federal officials have said they fear the president's budget will lead to massive layoffs at the State Department and Environmental Protection Agency, among other departments.

    Di Leo: The Deep State -- an Institutional Barrier Against Draining the Swamp By John F. Di Leo - As the Trump Administration began, two terms took over our discourse, from keyboard warriors on social media to the formal political theorists of the mainstream media. These two terms are not exactly antonyms, as one is a verb and the other is a gerund, but they certainly are diametrically opposed to each other: Draining the Swamp on the one hand, and the Deep State on the other. Draining the Swamp was easy to say, easy to understand, easy to cheer for....

    Reportedly Mob-connected Democrat Marty Moylan wants a $100 FOID card February 28, 2017 Back when Rod Blagojevich busied himself introducing all manner of radical gun control schemes, Democrat Marty Moylan worked as an Electrical Union enforcer. His job, among other things, involved getting Electrical Union workers "out of jams". He's also got ties to the Chicago mob, per the "Chicago Clout" blog. Marty Moylan later became mayor of Des Plaines. Now, the guy "that will tell you anything to get elected" has wormed his way into the Illinois House. Democrat Marty Moylan stands as one of those Progressive Caucus Democrats...

    A Veteran’s Affairs (VA) “whistleblower” has reported that the VA is on the verge of throwing out “over 500,000” veteran’s applications because of errors made during the Obama administration. Scott Davis is a well-known VA whistleblower and program specialist at the VA’s National Health Eligibility Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, who has previously testified before Congress. Davis wrote an urgent letter to President Trump making the nearly-incredulous claim that, unless Trump quickly steps in to intervene, the Veteran’s Administration plans to throw out “more than 500,000” veteran’s applications in March. According to Davis, the reason the VA wants to declare the...

    It turns out that congressional staffers have been taking money from an Iraqi politician. These staffers just happen to be the ones who were fired for attempting to access sensitive information. Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan took $100,000 Dr. Ali al-Attar, money that — according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group — was “funneled through a company with ‘impossible’-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.” All three of the brothers are now under a criminal investigation. Imran Awan provided IT services for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the disgraced Democrat who was forced to resign as...
