The city of Cambridge, Massachusetts just brought the concept of sanctuary city to a whole new level. In an effort to protect illegal immigrants from ICE, the city has passed a new law which directs police not to arrest illegals caught driving without a driver’s license. They don’t call it the ‘People’s Republic of Cambridge’ for nothing, folks. As a Massachusetts native, let me assure you that pretty much every joke you’ve heard about Cambridge is true. Drew Karedes reports at FOX 25 News in Boston: Under new Cambridge law, undocumented immigrants won’t be arrested for driving without a license It’s the law

Just don't forget to renew if you're a citizen.
( I thought DLs were in the purview of the state - wouldn't they have an issue with Cambridge?)

OK, suppose I don't have my drivers license with me and I get stopped by a Cambridge cop because I have a broken taillight. Do I just tell the cop that I'm an "undocumented immigrant" and he''ll let me go along my way with nothing but a heart-felt apology for interrupting my busy day?

Democrats create these multi-tiered legal systems that make a mockery of the Pledge, even as it was written before the addition of God: "One Nation, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice, for All." Flatly, its known as tyranny.

Can they arrest them when their BA level hits .21 and they've killed a family? Don't deport them. Lock them up for 25 years and then deport them. MINIMUM.

It would seem to be prudent to NOT live in any state where illegals could accidentally OR intentionally KILL YOU because elected leaders there feel that their virtue signalling and political correctness should encourage (even criminal) illegal aliens to reside there.

So, if you are a criminal - here in the country criminally and illegally, you get an automatic pass for driving illegally - BUT, if you are an American citizen, you ARE subject to the law. Yeah, that's sensible. How is this even constitutional?

Accused bike path terrorist Sayfullo Saipov threatened to decapitate a federal corrections officer for repeatedly waking him while he’s locked up at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a new court filing detailing a trove of the government’s evidence against him alleges. Saipov, who’s accused of killing eight people during his 2017 Halloween terror attack on the West Side Highway, allegedly threatened the officer on Dec. 17 last year for repeatedly slamming a door at night, making it hard for the ISIS-follower to sleep at night, the filing states.

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz revealed in an interview on Sunday that he has proof that former Democrat President Barack Obama ordered the FBI to investigate someone after far-left billionaire George Soros asked for the investigation. There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don’t think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that,” Dershowitz told Breitbart News. “I have some information as well about the Obama administration – which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I’m not prepared to disclose it now – about how President Obama personally asked the

The 24 million people who watched this year’s Academy Awards got to see what Hollywood has become: an industry that cares less about producing quality entertainment, and more about reinforcing a culture that puts a premium on grievance, oppression and victimhood. No one is more committed to fortifying the standing of victims and their unearned privileges than liberal celebrities.

Well, it's starting to become more clear why Greta Thunberg wanted to trademark her name. It turns out that BBC Studios is developing a TV show about Greta Thunberg. As of this writing, there is no release date, no number of episodes set, and no network attached. If there's no title yet, I think it should be called "Skipping School." But, we do have a series description courtesy of BBC Studios: The series will follow Greta’s international crusade, which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth, as she explores what actions could be taken

The first Netflix film produced by former President Obama and Michelle Obama‘s production company won an award on Sunday during the Oscars and, while accepting the award, the filmmakers recited Karl Marx’s Communist manifesto. Julia Reichert of “American Factory” received the award and said: “Working people have it harder and harder these days – and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.” The term “workers of the world unite,” comes directly from the communist manifesto and was widely noticed by media critics.

On Friday, the Democrats in the Virginia legislature took the first step toward a sweeping gun ban and confiscation scheme that they plan to put into effect on July 1st. (Just in time for the 4th of July. How patriotic.) The House Public Safety Committee approved a ban on AK-47s and AR-15 style rifles, as well as all suppressors and magazines holding 12 rounds or more. There was a last-minute concession made to allow rifle owners to grandfather their weapons legally purchased before the ban goes into effect. There is no such grandfather clause for magazines or suppressors.

President Trump has now been acquitted, but Democrats hope his impeachment will disgrace him “for life” and tilt the 2020 election. Don’t bet on it. Sen. Lindsey Graham has a better idea. Graham is proposing post-impeachment investigations by the Senate to “get to the bottom” of the Democrats’ impeachment hoax. That will pin the disgrace where it belongs — on the party that dragged the nation through an unwarranted ordeal. Many Republican senators and Vice President Mike Pence are brushing aside the idea of investigations, saying they want to “move on.” Not so fast.

Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

A newly discovered species of snail has been named after teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, scientists announced in a new study published Thursday. The critter, which was discovered in Brunei on the island of Borneo, now has the scientific name Craspedotropis gretathunbergae. "The newly described snail belongs to the so-called caenogastropods, a group of land snails known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation," snail expert and study lead author Menno Schilthuizen said in a statement. The tiny mollusk, which is about 2 millimeters in size, was discovered by citizen-scientists from the tour group Taxon Expeditions
