Breaking! Judge Blocks Trump’s Sanctuary Cities Funding Order

There’s clearly a lot of foot-dragging going on by the USA government’s lawyers who are supposed to be arguing for President Trump’s policies. Holdovers from the Obama era are sabotaging the rule of law.

Mercury News

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge Tuesday halted President Donald Trump’s executive order stripping sanctuary jurisdictions of federal funding, dealing a blow to the Trump Administration’s efforts to punish so-called sanctuary cities and counties.

With Santa Clara County and San Francisco’s landmark motion for a preliminary injunction approved, the section of the executive order applying to sanctuary jurisdictions will not go into effect until the court rules on the county’s Feb. 3 lawsuit against the administration.

District Judge William Orrick issued a ruling less than two weeks after a hearing on the case. Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez called it a victory for immigrant rights.

“We’re fighting for the United States Constitution and we succeeded after the Trump Administration tried to do an end run around it,” Chavez said in a statement. “The court’s decision is a win for the neediest people in our nation. Seniors in need of food, foster youth in need of shelter and children who need medical care. We’ll continue being a welcoming, safe and diverse community.”

The case has placed Santa Clara and San Francisco at the center of a contentious debate about sanctuary cities and counties. Hundreds of jurisdictions around the country have declared themselves sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants, proclaiming they will not turn those immigrants over to federal agents, despite repeated threats from the Trump Administration.

But an April 14 hearing at the Phillip Burton Federal Building revealed those threats were largely symbolic–federal attorneys confessed they had no idea how President Trump’s executive order stripping sanctuary jurisdictions of federal funding would actually work.

They said the government at this point hasn’t identified any “sanctuary jurisdictions,” must less defined what the term means.

The admissions suggested that the Trump administration has done little so far to translate months of threatening words from the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions into a real anti-sanctuary policy.

Orrick appeared to sense the ambiguity of the policy, at one point asking, “What would the purpose of the executive order be?”

The bolded statement above is an admission that the goal of the left is to import the entire world while making white taxpayers pay every expense for the alien populations.

If that doesn’t scare you, nothing will. To add insult to injury the left, represented by the words of Cindy Chavez, is claiming that the Constitution requires open borders and taxpayer support of illegals.

The time for talk is rapidly drawing to a close. The time for action, real action, draws ever nearer.

Chaos as San Francisco Blackout Shuts Down Everything

Dahboo7 claims there are power outages all over the U.S.

Either the Russians did it or you engage with reality and understand that power outages happen in third world countries like Mexifornia all the time.

Alternatively, this power outage is a dry run created by the Deep State in order to see how people cope with an emergency.

A massive power outage in San Francisco on Friday morning caused a blackout in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a federal courthouse and a BART station, officials said. As SFGates reports, a spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power.

BART’s Montgomery Station was closed due to the outage, which struck after 9 a.m. BART rains were running through Montgomery Station without stopping. Cable cars were also impacted and shuttles were put in place to provide service, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency.

There were reports of traffic lights out in many city intersections, and traffic was backing up on downtown streets. The Phillip Burton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at 450 Golden Gate Ave. was among the many buildings closed down by the outage.

A PG&E spokesman said the company was trying to determine the cause of the outage, as well as how long it would take to restore power.

The San Francisco Fire Department was responding to calls for service, but reported no injuries as of 10 a.m.

Of course, it could be worse..

So far the Russians have not been blamed.

Obama must make an emergency flight to San Francisco in order to comfort the LGBT snowflakes who are cowering in fear in closets all over the city.

Hey, you liberal dummies. Ann Coulter’s speech isn’t till the 27th. You shut everything down too early.

Breaking: British PM Announces SHOCK General Election on June 8

TERESA MAY. BRITISH PRIME MINISTER.

I’m not sure what motivated the lady from 10 Downing Street, but I sure hope that the outcome is a better deal for Britain as it loses its ties to the European Union.

metro.co.uk

Prime Minister Theresa May has called an early general election.

The PM announced the general election will be held on June 8 in an unexpected speech outside 10 Downing Street.

Justifying the decision, Mrs May said: ‘The country is coming together but Westminster is not.’

She added that ‘division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit’.

Explaining her change of heart on an early election, Mrs May said: ‘I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election.’

She concluded by saying it was ‘with reluctance’ that she reached her decision but added: ‘It is with strong conviction that I believe it is necessary to secure a strong and stable leadership this country needs.’

May took office in July 2016 after her predecessor David Cameron resigned as the European Referendum result was announced.

She had previously said she would stay in office until the next general election in 2020.

Under Britain’s Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, the PM can call an election if two-thirds of lawmakers vote for it.

It is unusual for leaders to make a statement outside Number 10 Downing Street and most prime ministers only use the setting for major announcements.

Her office gave no indication on the subject of the statement.

Her unscheduled speech follows a regular meeting with her senior ministers, May’s office said.

As investors awaited news of May’s statement, sterling fell by almost a cent against the dollar and British government bonds extended gains, with yields on 10-year debt falling to their lowest since mid-October.

White House Leaker is Trump Son-in-Law (((Jared Kushner))), Says Roger Stone

I hope Roger Stone is wrong about this. A split between President Trump and his son-in-law would force Ivanka Trump to take sides. If she choose Jared, it would kill the President.

The Jewish question is well discussed on youtube. Samples:

the Jews are in the center of it again

So true, they have been in control of the Vatican for a long time. Allot of the very evil popes were crypto-jews as well.

Never liked Jared Kushner.
His father is a serious criminal.
His father is so corrupt, he couldn’t even buy his way out of prison time.

I don’t trust Ivanka and Kushner. They look and sound like globalist liberals.

There must be a reasonable explanation about Kushner. “lm sure this is not right.

I didn’t know his father, Charles Kushner, bought the 666th Fifth Ave building in Manhattan. Interesting….

With Jews…you lose

Winning! DNC Leader Calls for All Staffers to Resign

Between their own arrogance and stupidity and Donald Trump’s crafty ability to troll the Democrats, the breaking news out of D. C. should not be surprising.

The leader of the DNC is a Latino, Tom Perez. How do you think that’s going to play with white voters concerned about the Mestizo takeover of America. Debbie Wasserman Shcultz, Donna Brazile, and now Tom Perez–a Jew, a black, and a Mestizo, born of Dominican immigrant parents.

F-ing losers, all.

Excerpt from NBC News

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.

Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.

Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.

A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future.

Major staffing and organizational changes will be announced in coming weeks, one aide said.

The DNC declined to comment for this story.

Perez is the party’s third leader in the past year, which was one of its most difficult on record.

It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.

Breaking: Terrorist Attacks British Parliament–at Least one Dead, Others Suffer “catastrophic” Injuries

UPDATE 3: MISIDENTIFICATION? ABU IZZADEEN STILL IN PRISON?

UPDATE 2: THIS TWEET FROM BREAKING NEWS.

UPDATE 1: 4 CONFIRMED DEAD INCLUDING POLICE OFFICER AND ATTACKER.

Reports are saying a car attacker used his vehicle as a weapon, hitting people before fleeing into the Old Palace before he was shot at least three times by police. Three police were injured. Three of the injured are reportedly French students. There’s no word yet on whether Americans or Canadians were injured.

Today is the anniversary of the attack on Brussels, Belgium, which was carried out by Muslims. There’s no indication from anyone about the identity of today’s attacker. It’s also unclear how many people participated in the attack.

Prime Minister Teresa May is expected to make a public statement soon.

National Post live updates

LONDON — Britain’s Parliament was locked down Wednesday after an attacker stabbed an officer and was then shot by police. London police said they were treating the attack as a “terrorist incident until we know otherwise.”

A doctor at St Thomas’ Hospital says a female pedestrian has died and about a dozen people are hurt, some with “catastrophic” injuries, after a vehicle apparently hit pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, near Parliament.

“There were people across the bridge. There were some with minor injuries, some catastrophic,” Colleen Anderson said. “Some had injuries they could walk away from or who have life-changing injuries.”

She said there might be a dozen injured in all.

The threat level for international terrorism in the UK was listed at severe. The city was also on alert for the Thursday funeral of Martin McGuinness, former IRA commander.

Dennis Burns, who was just entering Parliament for a meeting, told the Press Association he heard a radio message saying an officer had been stabbed. Police and security rushed outside as he was going in.

“When I got inside I was wondering what the hell was going on and I saw dozens of panicked people running down the street,” he said. “The first stream was around 30 people and the second stream was 70 people.

Sky News live stream–London terror attack:

The Guardian live updates:

Here is an extract from the statement from the Metropolitan police commander, BJ Harrington.

Although we remain open-minded to the motive, a full counter-terrorism investigation is already under way. This is led by the Met counter-terrorism command.

At this stage I will confirm what we know has happened but I will not speculate. We received a number of different reports which included a person in the river, a car in collision with pedestrians and a man armed with a knife. Officers were already in that location as part of routine policing but immediately additional officers were sent to the scene and that included firearms officers. We are working closely with the London ambulance service and the London fire brigade …

We know there are a number of casualties, including police officers, but at this stage we cannot confirm numbers or the nature of these injuries …

The acting commissioner, Craig Mackey, is being treated as a significant witness as he was at the scene when the incident started. Whilst he is not injured, it would be inappropriate for him to be here to talk about this incident at this stage.

Our thoughts and his thoughts are with all those involved and responding to that incident this evening. I would stress that if anyone has information about today’s incident they are urged to call 0800789321 and I want to stress that if the public have any information or see anything suspicious to dial 999 immediately.

The Mail’s headline reads this way:

BREAKING NEWS: At least two dead and a dozen hurt – some with ‘catastrophic injuries’ – after car driven by ‘Asian’ knifeman mows down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before he is shot attacking police in grounds of Parliament

In British speak, “Asian” generally means Muslim.
