    What are the resolutions? One of the measures restricts officers from asking the status of immigrants without first permitting them to not answer the question. The other instructs officers to refrain from arresting people for low-level offenses such as smoking marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and other misdemeanors.
  • Is it just me, or has Drudge started leaning toward Trump? (Vanity)

    My withered brain | 21 June 2018 | Me
    Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site. Trump heaps praise on Drudge ReportSo, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump. I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past. Of course, I may also be crazy...

    An anonymous email came in over the transom this morning: Hi, Stacy. During the early weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a lumbering Philippine container ship, it was noteworthy that the captain and a couple of admirals were publically named, but not the actual officer in charge, the officer of the deck. (OOD) The other person who should have kept the Fitz out of trouble is the person in charge of the combat information center, the Tactical Action Officer. That individual is supposed to be monitoring the combat radar, which can detect a swimmer at a distance of...

    I got into a fight over immigration over the weekend with my best friend. He loves hillary but we respect each other views for the most part. He started ripping me a new a one about Trump and the kids at the boarder calling it the holocaust and trump is the new hitler. I tried to explain that Clinton signed this into law in 1996 or 1997 and that its being going on every since then. He did not want to hear that. Its all Trumps fault.

    POSTED ON JUNE 15, 2018 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN RACIAL PREFERENCES HARVARD DOESNíT LIKE ASIANS I wrote here about the class action lawsuit that accuses Harvard of discriminating against Asian-Americans. The court has denied Harvardís motions to dismiss, and the case is moving forward, which caused the university to defend its admissions practices in an email to its alumni. In denying discrimination, Harvard says it relies on a ďwhole-person admissions process.Ē That is, Harvard ďconsiders the whole person, not just an applicantís grades and test scores.Ē Thatís fine as far as it goes, but if one ethnic group consistently needs...

    On Monday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) proposed an amendment to this yearís National Defense Authorization Act. The National Defense Authorization Act has to be renewed every year, and every year Lee proposes the same amendment. This year, it was co-sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (R-Calif.), who may be as far to the left of the political spectrum as Lee is to the right. What was this amendment about? The proposal for Amendment 2366 read simply: To clarify that an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority does not authorize the detention without charge or...

    In our increasingly divided and partisan society, it appears that some forces are stepping up their efforts to silence others, shutting down debate rather than taking part in it. It's a mark of folks who know they have no winning argument, so therefore have to project, obfuscate and name call rather than actually address issues. Snowflakes! This is nothing new, but in the Trump era Ė in which the losing side of the 2016 presidential election still thinks of itself as the side of goodness despite increasing evidence to the contrary Ė U.S. President Trump's efforts to drain the deep...

    For the first time in public history, Iranian officials admit to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks by aiding Al Qaeda operatives traveling to the United States to carry out the attacks. Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iranís judiciary, admitted in an interview broadcasted on Iranian state TV on May 30 that Iranian intelligence officials facilitated the terroristsí travel to the U.S. ďOur government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped.
