Negro “Sovreign Citizen” Who Sued State for $11.5 BILLION Arrested for Shooting at Cops

JOHN JONES BEY. SHOOTING AT POLICE WILL PUT YOU IN JAIL.

The Sovereign Citizen movement must seem like a dream come true to the black man. Here’s a chance to stick it to the white man’s law. Except the white man’s law isn’t bending, much less breaking.

Indy Star

An Indianapolis man who believes the laws don’t apply to him and once sued the state for $11.5 billion was arrested Monday after a three-hour SWAT standoff.

John Jones Bey, 52, is facing three counts of attempted murder and three counts of criminal recklessness for his alleged role in the incident that played out Monday morning in the 3400 block of Kinnear Avenue.

According to a police report of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Bey fired gunshots at three Center Township constables as they attempted to serve him an eviction order.

MPD officers responded around 9:30 a.m. Monday, and the SWAT team was called in to assist when the armed Bey refused to leave his home.

After more than three hours, Bey peacefully surrendered, police said. No one was injured during the incident, and officers at the scene recovered the handgun that Bey is accused of firing at the constables.

Bey was booked into the Marion County Jail on the preliminary charges of attempted murder and criminal recklessness. A final charging decision will be made by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to a February decision from the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, Bey considers himself a “sovereign citizen,” meaning that he does not believe the laws apply to him. He also does not believe that he can be lawfully taxed in the absence of a contract between him and the state.

Bey, who describes himself as an “Aboriginal Indigenous Moorish-American,” previously filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana what he labeled a “Writ of Mandamus.” Within it Bey was seeking to enjoin state and county officials from taxing property that he owns in Marion County.

Court documents said Bey also asked that state officials be ordered to refund the taxes that he’d paid and to compensate him for their alleged wrongs. He determined that the district court should award him $11.5 billion to cover the 40 years of taxes and the mental anguish caused by the taxation.

The court of appeals in February affirmed the decision of the district court, ruling against Bey.

As we always advise here, there are legal ways to go stealth and avoid paying at least some taxes, without resorting to illegal, fraudulent Sovereign Citizen arguments. Bone up on tax law and learn how to reduce, if not eliminate your taxes, if that’s important to you. Challenging government directly is rarely wise. Quietly withdrawing from the System is far better in terms of outcomes for you.

Police Fitness Test Discriminated Against Women, Federal Judge Rules

A federal judge has ruled that fitness tests that women cannot pass at the same rate as men are a violation of federal law.

Judge Richard Matsch was born in 1930! He presided over the Oklahama City bombing case that saw Timothy McVeigh convicted in a trial that covered up a great deal of the truth.

At age 87, Matsch is still ruling from the bench. He’s now found that fitness tests that women can’t pass are discriminatory.

The test isn’t described in the story, but I probably couldn’t pass it either, but I’m not selfish enough to demand that standards be lowered for my benefit.

Putting unqualified women cops on the street is going to kill people. Matsch needs to retire and let someone with a stronger sense of logic rule from the bench.

The Gazette

A fitness test given to Colorado Springs police officers discriminated against women and violated civil rights laws, a federal judge ruled Wednesday in a two-year lawsuit.

The test “shamed and ostracized” the 12 plaintiffs – many of them decorated officers with decades of service – while providing “meaningless” results, ruled U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch.

Performing poorly on the test left officers at risk of losing their jobs, despite the benchmark scores being “arbitrary” and the evaluation having little to do with the officers’ everyday work, Matsch said. Significantly more women than men failed it.

“To retroactively impose that requirement on women who have invested their lives as career police officers is fundamentally unfair,” Matsch wrote.

The ruling that Colorado Springs violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 leaves the city on the hook for a possible payout to the plaintiffs for wage loss and emotional distress. A hearing on damages is expected to be set in the coming week.

A California civil rights advocate said it also sends a message to municipalities across the nation to avoid such fitness tests for potential hires and veteran employees.

“If municipalities are going to use tests like this, they have to make sure there’s a scientific basis behind them,” said Jocelyn Larkin, executive director of the Impact Fund. The organization helps bankroll civil-rights lawsuits, and it contributed $30,000 to this case.

Donna Dell’Olio, an attorney representing the women, praised the ruling as a victory for women seeking to join the force.

“The women are wonderful professionals, and all they wanted was to be able to serve crime victims and the citizens of Colorado Springs,” Dell’Olio said. “And now they’re going to be allowed to do that.”

Ten of the dozen plaintiffs remain on the force, Dell’Olio said. One has since moved to Wyoming, and another left the department amid fears she’d lose her job for failing the test.

“They did this at great peril to their careers,” Dell’Olio said. “And they did it for the younger women who are coming up behind them.”

A statement from the Police Department said “the city has received the ruling, is reviewing it, and evaluating the city’s options.”

The issue dates to 2009, when former Chief Richard Myers mandated all officers undergo fitness tests, and the department hired Human Performance Systems of Beltsville, Md., to create the evaluations. They included one-minute sit-up and push-up tests, as well as two running tests, one of which focused on agility.

Practice tests in 2013 showed deep disparities in women’s and men’s success rates, the lawsuit said.

Forty percent of women failed the test, compared with 9 percent of men. Women police recruits tested that year fared slightly worse, while men did slightly better.

Still, a 2014 order by Myers’ successor, Chief Pete Carey, mandated each officer pass the test annually. Officers who failed the first test were relegated to desk duty, while those who failed after six months of trying could be fired.

All 12 plaintiffs failed on the first try, including Maggie Santos, a lieutenant at the time overseeing the department’s Internal Affairs division.

She retired after 24 years in the department, taking a job as director of campus safety at a college. In leaving early, Santos said Wednesday that she left “significant” pension benefits on the table.

The risk of being fired without a place to go was too great, she said, especially as her kids neared college.

“It was horrible,” Santos said. “I didn’t want to leave. That isn’t when I had planned to retire. I still had more career in front of me, and it was taken.”

In issuing his ruling, Matsch relied on complex statistical analyses highlighting the disparities women faced.

He said some of the evaluations – such as the push-up test – favored men while “not being designed to evaluate an officer’s overall suitability for duty.”

The Police Department also erred in making the test a sole criterion for an officer’s firing, rather than as “one component,” he said.

In the process, Matsch noted that the Police Department’s use of a fitness test for current employees – not applicants – was unprecedented.

Santos said Matsch’s ruling was bittersweet.

“The reason why we did it was for the younger women,” Santos said. “They won’t appreciate it now when they’re in their 20s, but in 20 to 25 years, they’ll appreciate what we did, and we’re doing it for them.”

EVEN AUNT JEMIMA HAS A RIGHT TO BE A COP NOW.

Winning! Border Control Legislation “Kate’s Law” Passes House

KATE STEINLE. SHOT DEAD BY AN ILLEGAL MEXICAN.

One of President Donald Trump’s big campaign issues came to fruition today when the House passed Kate’s Law. The last remaining obstacle is the Senate. Democrats are on notice: Block Kate’s Law and you’re going into early retirement.

Fox News

House Republicans took action Thursday to crack down on illegal immigrants and the cities that shelter them.

One bill passed by the House would deny federal grants to sanctuary cities and another, Kate’s Law, would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States.

Kate’s Law, which would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and caught, passed with a vote of 257 to 157, with one Republican voting no and 24 Democrats voting yes.

Kate’s Law is named for Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman killed by an illegal immigrant who was in the U.S. despite multiple deportations. The two-year anniversary of her death is on Saturday.

President Trump called the bill’s passage “good news” in a tweet, adding “House just passed #KatesLaw. Hopefully Senate will follow.”

“He should not have been here, and she should not have died,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday, in a final push for Kate’s Law, an earlier version of which was blocked in the Senate last year.

“Our job here is to make sure that those professionals have the tools that they need and the resources that they need to carry out their work and to protect our communities. That is what these measures are all about,” added Ryan.

The other bill, which would deny federal grants to sanctuary cities, passed with a vote of 228-195 with 3 Democrats voting yes and 7 Republicans voting no.

The brutal murder of Steinle catapulted the issue of illegal criminal aliens into the national spotlight. Alleged shooter Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had been deported five times and had seven felony convictions.

On Wednesday, President Trump highlighted other cases during a White House meeting with more than a dozen families of people who had been victimized by illegal immigrants, including Jamiel Shaw Sr.

Shaw’s 17-year-old son Jamiel was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in California in March 2008..

“He was living the dream,” Shaw said during the meeting. “That was squashed out.”

The second measure, “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act,” would cut federal grants to states and “sanctuary cities” that refuse to cooperate with law enforcement carrying out immigration enforcement activities.

“The word ‘sanctuary’ calls to mind someplace safe, but too often for families and victims affected by illegal immigrant crime, sanctuary cities are anything but safe,” Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly asserted in the pre-vote press conference.

“It is beyond my comprehension why federal state and local officials … would actively discourage or outright prevent law enforcement agencies from upholding the laws of the United States,” he added.

While gaining support in the Senate for similar legislation will be a tough road, Trump called for Congress to act quickly.

Trump called on the House and the Senate to “to honor grieving American families” by approving a “package of truly key immigration enforcement bills” so that he could sign them into law.

“I promise you, it will be done quickly. You don’t have to wait the mandatory period. It will be very quick,” promised Trump.

Earlier on Wednesday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas D. Homan and U.S. Attorney for Utah John W. Huber made their case for the bills during the White House press briefing.

Huber said 40 percent of Utah’s current felony caseload involves criminal alien prosecutions and the number is increasing.

The bills, Huber asserted, would “advance the ball for law enforcement in keeping our communities safe” and “would give officers and prosecutors more tools to protect the public.

Many immigration rights groups have characterized efforts to crack down on sanctuary cities as “anti-immigrant,” but Attorney General Jeff Sessions says it is not sound policy to allow sanctuary cities to flout federal immigration laws.

According to Homan, ICE already has arrested nearly 66,000 individuals this year that were either known or suspected to be in the country illegally. Of those arrested, 48,000 were convicted criminal aliens.

“The practices of these jurisdictions are not only contrary to sound policy; they’re contrary to the law enforcement cooperation that is carried out every day in our country and is essential to public safety,” Sessions wrote in a Fox News op-ed backing the bills.

Supreme Court Watchers Look for Travel Ban Ruling Today, Possible Retirement of 81 Year Old Justice Kenneday

A TWO-FER TODAY WOULD BE NICE.

Oh, the joy that would spread across the real America if both Justice Anthony Kennedy and Ruth Bader-Ginzberg were to announce their retirements today. All the buzz is that Kennedy is going to do it. Bader-Ginzberg is a different story. Her hatred of Trump may keep her going until she dies in office.

The second great matter on the Court’s agenda that has prompted great speculation is what happens next with the President’s travel ban. Each passing day that the ban is delayed creates more opportunities for Muslim mayhem in America. What the Court will do and what it ought to do may not coincide, but what it ought to do is lift any injunctions against the travel ban until the Court reaches a final ruling, probably next fall.

Yahoo

Washington (AFP) – The White House declined to comment Sunday on speculation that a pivotal US Supreme Court justice might announce his retirement on Monday, the last day of the high court’s current session.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has cast the decisive vote in some of the court’s most far-reaching decisions, turns 81 next month and is widely believed to be thinking of retiring.

When asked about that, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told ABC: “I will never reveal a conversation between a sitting justice and the president or the White House, but we’re paying very close attention to these last bit of decisions.”

One of those decisions could come Monday, if the nine justices are prepared to rule on a White House challenge to lower-court findings blocking Trump’s attempt to limit travel from six predominantly Muslim countries.

The court could also delay its recess to allow more time to consider the case, or even put it off to the fall session.

Two federal appeals courts have so far ruled against the travel ban, with one saying it violated laws against religious discrimination and another finding that Trump had exceeded his authority on immigration matters.

The original ban and a later revised order, both blocked by courts, represented one of Trump’s most controversial actions. They sparked global condemnation and threw travel from the targeted countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — into turmoil. Iraq was removed in the second version of the ban.

Kennedy, who was appointed to the high court by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, has often cast a “swing” vote from the bench.

He typically sides with conservatives on economic matters, gun control and voting rights, but with liberal justices on social issues like gay rights, the death penalty and abortion.

It was Kennedy who wrote the decision establishing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage nationwide.

Speculation about a Kennedy retirement was sparked partly because he was slow to hire clerks for the court’s next term.

If he does step down, Trump would have a chance to deepen his mark on the nation’s judiciary with the opportunity to pick another nominee for a lifetime appointment to the bench.

His first nominee, Neil Gorsuch — once a clerk to Kennedy — joined the court in April.

Republicans hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate, and under rules they passed to expedite Gorsuch’s confirmation they would need only a simple majority to fill the next court vacancy.

But a strongly conservative successor to Kennedy could push the court firmly to the right, and Democrats say they would fight such a pick fiercely.

“I expect Armageddon on the next one,” Republican Senator Orrin Hatch said after the Gorsuch confirmation, “because that’s going to change… the direction of the court” far into the future.

California Senate Leader: Trump Immigration Crackdown ‘Based on Principles of White Supremacy’

DEMOCRAT BEANER KEVIN DE LEON. BORDERS ARE RACIST.

A big shot beaner lectures the President of the United States on American values.

Ridiculous.

His kind are soon to be thrown upon the scrap heap of history. Culturally speaking, he would be a better fit with Mexico than with the USA.

Breitbart

California senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) has claimed that the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement crackdown is based on the “principles of white supremacy,” after the federal government threatened to withhold $20 million in criminal justice grants from the state of California.

“It has become abundantly clear that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration are basing their law enforcement policies on principles of white supremacy — not American values,” de León said in a statement. “Their constant and systematic targeting of diverse cities and states goes beyond constitutional norms and will be challenged at every level.”

Sen. de León’s comments come after the Department of Justice warned the state of California that it could lose $20 million in criminal justice grants should it fail to enforce policies under the new administration’s immigration crackdown.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has repeatedly warned localities protecting illegals from deportation, known as “sanctuary cities,” that they risk losing federal funding should they fail to comply with federal immigration law. The administration is also publishing a weekly list of crimes committed by illegal aliens residing in sanctuary cities.

On a visit to the southern border on Friday, Sessions described de León’s claim as “kind of extremist statement that I totally reject,” urging jurisdictions such as California and New York to “reconsider” their position.

Meanwhile, Californian Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba) ridiculed it as a “ridiculous statement.”

“Nobody here is talking about the state becoming an immigration agency or doing ICE’s job for them. It’s about whether you comply with federal law,” Gallagher told The LA Times.

In February this year, de León revealed that “half [his] family are here illegally” under false documents and would be eligible for deportation under government policy. He then went on to push legislation making California a “Sanctuary State,” which prohibits state law enforcement agencies in California from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Now that we know that de Leon’s family members are illegals, let’s get on the ball and deport them all.

Detroit Doctor Charged with Female Genital Mutilation on Girls as Young as Seven

DR. JUWANA NAGARWALA. LOOKS LIKE A MAN.

When you import a third world people to populate your country, you get third world behavior. It won’t be long before Democrats push the idea that charging turd worlders with crimes like this is discrimination. After all, we have to be “inclusive.” Right?

KDRTV

Jumana Nagarwala, a doctor employed by the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Mich., was arrested Thursday and charged with the felony crime of female genital mutiliation (FGM) on minor girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old.

Female genital mutiliation is a practice performed in many Islamic countries but also in some African Christian and Animist groups. There are several forms of FGM: removal of the clitoris (clitoridectomy); removal of the clitoris and the labia minora (excision); sealing the vagina to a narrow opening (infibulation); other harmful procedures such as piercing, incising, and cauterizing of the ganital area.

“According to the [criminal] complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco in an April 12 statement. “The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country, and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”

“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch. “The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law.”

In the April 12 complaint for an arrest warrant, FBI Special Agent Kevin J. Swanson states that “some members of a particular religious and cultural community (hereafter ‘the Community’) are known to practice FGM on young girls in the Community as part of their religious and cultural practice.”

“[W]hen FGM is performed in the Community, varying amounts of a girl’s clitoris or clitoral hood, or prepuce, are removed by the person who is performing the cutting,” said Swanson. “According to some members of the Community who have spoken out against the practice, the purpose of this cutting is to suppress female sexuality in an attempt to reduce sexual pleasure and promiscuity.”

The FBI and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) recived information that Dr. Nagarwala was performing FGM, in the Eastern District of Michigan, on girls “who were about 7 years old at the time,” said Swanson, “at a medical clinic in Livonia, Michigan (‘Medical Clinic’).”

Dr. Nagarwala is employed by Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, the Detroit News confirmed, and she has been put on administrative leave. A spokesman for Henry Ford Health said the alleged mutilations did not occur in a Henry Ford facility and the health system does not support such practices.

The FBI obtained a court order to review Dr. Nagarwala’s phone records and discovered a series a calls between the doctor’s phone and a phone in Minnesota. The “Minnesota number was associated with a Minnesota family that had a daughter who had just turned 7 years old (Minnesota Victim One, or MN-V-1). The Minnesota family was part of the Community in Minnesota.”

On Feb. 3, 2017, the Minnesota telephone number “contacted a tower in Farmington Hills, Michigan, near multiple hotels,” said Swanson. Farmington Hills has a very active Muslim community and hosted CAIR Michigan’s 15th annual banquet.

Investigation by the FBI subsequently discovered Victim One and a Victim Two, both 7-year-old girls, were staying at the same hotel with their parents in Farmington Hills. Victim One was interviewed by the FBI on April 10 and she said that she was taken to Detroit from Minnsota, along with Victim Two on a “special girls” trip. After arriving at the hotel, she said, they were taken to a doctor — identified as Dr. Nagarwala — for a procedure to “to get the germs out.”

The young girl, Victim One, according to Swanson, “said she took off her pants and underwear and laid on an examining table with her knees near her chest and her legs spread apart. MN-V-1 said that NAGARWALA ‘pinched’ her on the ‘place [where] she goes pee,’ and that she was given a pad to wear in her underwear. MN-V-1 said that she was told not to talk about the procedure.”

The FBI agent quoted in the story won’t name the “cultural” community. Is the doctor (an increasingly meaningless term) a Paki? Ethiopian? Give us all the facts, Mr. FBI man.

Jeff Sessions warns sanctuary cities will lose billions in Justice Department grants

Whatever failures President Donald Trump may be experiencing, he’s trying to keep his campaign promises.

This move is easy unless some liberal judge comes along to say to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “You can’t do that. That’s waycisssssss.”

Al.com

So-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to comply with immigration law will have federal funding taken away if they don’t reverse their policies, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned Monday.

The former Alabama senator made the announcement during the White House daily press briefing. Sessions said the Department of Justice will be enforcing a policy set last summer by the Obama administration on sanctuary cities.

Sessions cited a recent Department of Homeland Security report that he said showed there were 200 instances where jurisdictions refused to honor detainer requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for illegal immigrants charged with serious crimes, including murder, sex offenses against children, rape, hit-and-run, and drug trafficking.

“Such policies cannot continue. They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the streets,” Sessions told reporters. “Countless Americans would be alive today and countless loved ones would not be grieving today if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended.”

There are no sanctuary cities in Alabama, although the Birmingham City Council passed a resolution last month symbolically declaring the Magic City a sanctuary city that is “a community free of prejudice.”

A Justice Department office is estimated to award more than $4 billion in grants to states and localities. Sessions warned that sanctuary cities will lose out on the money – used for community policing and other programs – unless they reverse course.

“I strongly urge our nation’s states and cities and counties to consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws, and to rethink such policies,” the attorney general said. “The American people want and deserve a lawful system of immigration that keeps us safe and serves the national interest.”

While Sessions said his agency would merely carry out a policy approved during the Obama White House, he didn’t rule out the Trump administration taking further action on sanctuary cities.

“We believe that grants in the future can be issued that have additional requirements,” he said.
