Trump-Kim Summit - Another Result of MAGA, 
America First Policies
{ rickwells.us } ~ Nothing destroys a phantom legacy built upon false claims and excuses faster than positive results by your successor... liar-nObama and his communist, America last globalism is being shown for the failure it was doomed to be from the beginning in a most public and glaring manner with the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Like every other area of governance of America, the illegal alien imposter liar-nObama failed in 8 years to do anything close to what President Trump has done in a little over one. And that record of accomplishment would have been infinitely more extensive had he not been under constant attack by the globalists and establishment hacks intent on preserving their power by running him out of office. Camera flea Lindsey Graham says that he believes the North Koreans are afraid of President Trump because he is unpredictable. He also says that Trump has painted him into a box that he has no easy way out of. Graham’s good for latching on and co-opting a moment when he wants some of the reflective glow. It was less than a month ago that the shameless RINO was calling for a bill to protect Robert Mueller in the Senate Judiciary Committee...   https://rickwells.us/trump-kim-summit-maga/

Larry Kudlow, National Economic Council director, 
hospitalized after suffering heart attack, Trump says
by Matt Richardson
{ foxnews.com } ~ Larry Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, has been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack... President Trump said Tuesday from Singapore. "Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack," Trump tweeted ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center." Kudlow, 70, a conservative commentator, had replaced Gary Cohn who resigned in March. “Earlier today National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President Larry Kudlow, experienced what his doctors say, was a very mild heart attack," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement...

Nunes Accuses Justice Department 
of ‘Obstruction’ in Battle Over FBI Informant Documents
by Chuck Ross
{ dailysignal.com } ~ Devin Nunes, chairman of the House intelligence committee, is giving the Department of Justice until Tuesday to provide documents about an FBI informant used to spy on the Trump campaign... In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday, Nunes accused the agency of “obstruction” and using “an array of tactics” to withhold the documents about the spy, who is believed to be former University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper. In the letter, Nunes said he wants the documents provided to the intelligence committee and “designated staff” instead of only to the so-called Gang of Eight, as the Justice Department has requested...

Would a TV Judge Qualify for Appointment to the Supreme Court? 

by Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.
{ thenewamerican.com } ~ Pirro, the host of Fox News’s Justice With Judge Jeanine, has been an unwavering supporter of President Trump since the early days of his campaign... Her ties apparently go beyond political advocate, however, as New York Magazine reports that Pirro and her husband, Albert Pirro, “did legal work for Trump and they traveled in a lot of the same Greater New York social and political circles.” Existing in the same socio-economic sphere with the president is typically not considered sufficient qualification for the Supreme Court, though. As for Pirro’s more germane entries in her curriculum vitae, her biography on the Fox News website lists her previous legal experience thus: “In 1975, she became an assistant district attorney for Westchester County, New York and was the first female to prosecute murder cases there. In 1990, Pirro was elected as the first woman to serve as a Westchester County Court judge.” An unbiased analysis of Pirro’s resume reveals that she certainly possesses the experience necessary to merit a shot at the other Trump administration position she reportedly coveted, that of attorney general. Such a nomination wouldn’t seem such a stretch, however, as would a nod to take an open seat on the Supreme Court...

Saudi Arabia shoots down missile fired by rebels in Yemen 
{ conservativeinstitute.org } ~ The successfully intercepted attack comes after another Houthi missile strike on Jazan killed three civilians Saturday... according to Saudi state media. Saudi Arabia intercepted similar attacks over the southern cities of Jazan and Najran in May, with no casualties, according to the coalition. Houthi rebels have increased missile strikes on Saudi Arabia in recent months. Saudi Arabia has responded to the growing threat with a new siren system, which it tested last month, for its capital, Riyadh, and its Eastern Province. The missile attacks coincided with heavy fighting over the weekend between coalition-backed government forces and rebels near the rebel-held port city of Al Hodeidah, near the Red Sea. A weeks-long government advance toward the city succeeded in intensifying the fighting that has killed more than 600 in recent days, according to Yemeni security officials...   https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/national-security/saudi-arabi...

The Diversity Racket 
by Arnold Ahlert:  “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” —Eric Hoffer

             In modern-day America, there is no greater racket than diversity. Moreover, the American Left’s ongoing determination to eviscerate meritocracy in favor of “inclusion” is reaching metastatic levels.
               We begin in New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio and newly appointed schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza  announced their intentions to diversify admissions to the city’s eight specialized high schools — by eliminating the admissions exam. “We cannot let this injustice continue,” de Blasio declared. “By giving a wider, more diverse pool of our best students an equal shot at admissions, we will make these schools stronger and our city fairer.
               What “injustice?” Asian dominance, it would seem. Asians comprise 74% of the student population at Stuyvesant, 66% at Bronx Science, 61% at Brooklyn Tech, and 82% at Queens HS for Science at York College, despite comprising only 20% of the total NYC public school population.
               How do officials intend to make the pool wider? “To remedy the dearth of black and Hispanic students, the mayor proposes expanding enrollment by 20 percent, with additional students who failed to get qualifying scores, but only from majority black and Hispanic middle schools,” columnist Lisa Schiffren explains. “And he wants to bring in the top 7 percent of each of the 600 middle schools in the city. Consider that many of those middle schools do not report even one student reading or doing math at grade level.”
               For a hack like de Blasio, dumbing down NYC’s best high schools is preferable to taking on the all-powerful teachers union and fixing the schools known as “failure factories” they have cultivated — for decades.
               In a stark and oh-so-revealing contrast to these contemptible machinations, a homeless black student educated at a NYC charter school aptly known as the Success Academy just received a full ride to MIT. “Moctar Fall, of The Bronx, is one of 16 members of the charter school network’s first graduating high-school class — all of whom nabbed spots at four-year colleges ranging from Barnard and Tufts to Stony Brook and Emory,” the New York Post reports.
               Unsurprisingly, the Success Academy and other charter schools that put the lie to leftist education schemes are considered beneath contempt by de Blasio and the teachers’ union.
               Chancellor Carranza? “Not so long ago, chancellors were hired to run schools and promote educational excellence for all students,” columnist Micheal Goodwin asserts. “Now they’re hired to engineer outcomes based on race, ethnicity and family income.”
               Tragic, life-wrecking outcomes. Where else is meritocracy on the ropes? An liar-nObama administration “diversity road map” directive released in January 2017 requires Navy commanders to “effectively manage diversity” and “refine approaches to engender a sustainable culture of inclusion.” It will be enforced by layers of bureaucracy, including the total force integration board, the executive diversity advisory council, and the diversity and inclusion council. It is part of an overall initiative spearheaded between 2012 and 2017 by the Department of Defense which asserted that diversity “is a strategic imperative, critical to mission readiness and accomplishment, and a leadership requirement.”
               As The Washington Times notes, the directive “has the hallmarks of former Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, the eight-year officeholder whose legacy is steeped in social change.” The same Ray Mabus who sought to “gender-integrate” Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) job titles by removing the word “man” from them.
               Warped priorities seemingly have their consequences. A three-month Navy review reveals that nearly 85% of its junior officers “struggled to react decisively to extricate their ship from danger when there was an immediate risk of collision,” Defense News reported.
               This stunning lack of basic seamanship included struggles with “operating radars and the associated tools at hand,” and applying international rules “practically during watch standing, especially in low-visibility situations.” And while most of the first-tour officers of the deck (OODs) demonstrated the ability to remain clear from other ships in a simulator, they nonetheless demonstrated an inability to “take immediate action to avoid collisions” when they found themselves in actual extreme situations.
               Vice Adm. Richard Brown attributes this incompetence to “a bell curve distribution.” He explained, “We had 27 who were on top, we had 108 who were in the middle and we had 29 who were kind of at the lower end.”
               One is left to wonder whether such bell curve distributions provide any comfort to the families and friends of 17 sailors on the USS Fitzgerald and USS John S. McCain killed in what a Navy report called “avoidable” collisions.
               Retired Navy admiral James A. Lyons doesn’t buy the elevation of inclusion over talent. “I believe the current problems our ships are experiencing can be traced to these mandates,” he asserts. “With the hundreds of millions of dollars that are expended to build today’s sophisticated warships, we must have the ‘best and brightest’ to man those ships. Now is the time to take the lead by breaking the shackles of political correctness and put the Navy back on an even keel.”
               From the Navy, we move to air traffic control — and utter insanity. “The safety of America’s airline passengers is being compromised for the sake of diversity in hiring air traffic controllers, an attorney suing the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host Tucker Carlson on Friday,” Fox News reports. Attorney Michael Pearson stated that an FAA sub-group known as the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees determined the “workforce was too white.”
               The story has come to light due to a revived lawsuit filed by Andrew Brigida. In 2013, he graduated with two aviation-related bachelor’s degrees from Arizona State University, one of the FAA’s Collegiate Training Initiative schools. He also aced the Air Traffic Selection and Training exam (AT-SAT). Nonetheless, he hasn’t been hired in five years.
               Why? In 2013, the liar-nObama administration  determined that diversity was more important than merit. Preference was no longer given to CTI graduates, and a “biographical questionnaire” (BQ) was added to the screening process.
               Fox News obtained a copy of it. “Applicants with a lower aptitude in science got preference over applicants who had scored excellent in science,” Carlson reveals. “Applicants who had been unemployed for the previous three years got more points than licensed pilots got. In other words, the FAA actively searched for unqualified air traffic controllers.”
               Fox also obtained an internal email written by an executive at the firm that revised the BQ. It admitted the test had nothing to do with finding the most qualified controllers.
               Brigida filed a lawsuit against the FAA in 2016. It was was initially dismissed, but U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich overturned that decision. William Perry Pendley of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, a public-interest law firm representing Brigida, stated the blindingly obvious. “We’re not talking about somebody driving a truck,” he said. “We’re talking about somebody guiding an aircraft into snowbound Chicago.
               Is this the final straw for diversity mandates? Or will fear of flying give way to, say, fear of surgery? Only the diversity racketeers know for certain.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
