The union representing 11,000 Department of Homeland Security employees who screen foreign refugees and asylum seekers has filed a Supreme Court brief saying President Trump’s decision to freeze the refugee program is ill-informed and contradicts the country’s heritage of admitting immigrants fleeing war and prosecution. “You’ll notice we didn’t weigh in on ‘It’s racist,’ ‘It’s unconstitutional,’” said Michael Knowles, president of National Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Council 119, speaking of Trump’s decrees that are generally referred to as the Muslim travel ban. “It’s not that we don’t have views about that.(snip)“Our whole agency was created in response to 9/11,”

These guys have an opinion, but are not refugees, so I can´t see how they would have standing to file a lawsuit.

Another thing that needs to be banned is unionization of federal employees.

This employee union is seeped in liberal Democrat politics. Their members also have a special interest in opening the borders to as many asylees and refugees as possible, as once the numbers of asylees and refugees go down, the numbers of asylum and refugee federal officials needed to process them also goes down. That means less union members.

Key word: Union. Predisposed to counter anything a republican President might propose. Fewer immigrants, fewer threats, means fewer gigs for Homeland Security personnel. Job protection at it´s most nuanced. Easily discountable. Immaterial.

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

In a discovery that has stunned both authorities and neighbors in a suburban Riverside County neighborhood, 13 brothers and sisters who appeared to have been held captive by their parents in a Perris house were found early Sunday, Jan. 14, after one of them escaped and called 911. Some of them were chained and padlocked to their beds inside the dark and foul-smelling house in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said. “The parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner,” sheriff’s officials said in a news

The federal judge who blocked President Trump from eliminating a program that protects nearly 700,000 young immigrants from deportation issued a follow-up ruling Friday saying the lawsuits challenging the president’s order can seek to prove discrimination, based on Trump’s disparaging comments about Latinos. U.S. District Judge William Alsup of San Francisco issued a nationwide injunction Tuesday preserving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, while suits against its repeal continue.

A planned meeting of leaders of the 11 countries that remain in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was unexpectedly scrapped yesterday after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau failed to turn up. They were to have met to discuss the fate of the trade pact, amid differences over how to proceed with the deal after the withdrawal of the United States in January. The so-called TPP-11 is made up of Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam, all members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) forum.

Judge denies California’s bid to reinstate
Affordable Care Act subsidies
San Francisco Chronicle, by Catherine Ho    Original Article
Posted By: poster- 10/25/2017 11:19:03     Post Reply
A federal judge on Wednesday denied an attempt by California to force the Trump administration to pay billions of dollars to insurance companies to subsidize health plans for low-income Americans. The payments, known as cost-sharing subsidies, were established under the Affordable Care Act to reimburse insurers for offering lower deductibles and co-payments for some consumers who buy health plans on the insurance exchange. The payments are one of two types of ACA subsidies that lower the cost of health care for millions of Americans; the other type helps consumers pay for insurance premiums.

The Left has gun-toting militias of its own,
Charlottesville lawsuit reveals

With a name like Redneck Revolt, one “paramilitary” group named in a lawsuit filed in the wake of the deadly Charlottesville protests sounds like the classic alt-right, gun-toting militia many blame for the August incident that sparked a national debate on race and guns. But Redneck Revolt is a sometimes-armed militia that left-wing protesters have apparently started calling on for security, and critics say it represents a growing group of heat-packing, far-left social justice warriors who are “willing to take on personal risk to defend those in our community,” according to the group’s website.

President Trump’s job approval rating has rebounded from its lows, as voters approve of the government’s response to a series of devastating hurricanes and the White House’s efforts to work with Democrats. The latest Harvard-Harris survey found 45 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 55 percent who disapprove. That´s up from 43 percent last month, which marked the low point for Trump in the survey. The 45 percent approval rating in the Harvard-Harris poll is higher than most other polls. The president is at 41.3 percent in the RealClearPolitics average.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials lodged what is known as a detainer request for Jesus Perez-Araujo, 24, after he was arrested three months before the Aug. 15 street killing of 23-year-old Abel Enrique Esquivel Jr., said ICE spokesman James Schwab.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

(Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
