Organizer Of Protest That Left 5 Cops Dead Arrested For Felony Theft

Officers of the Dallas Police Department arrested Dominque Alexander on Thursday, the black activist that organized the 2016 anti-police protest in Dallas that left 12 officers shot and five dead.

Alexander faces charges of felony theft, stemming from a previous employer who claims the activist received payments between $2,500 and $30,000 from clients without transferring them to the company, the Dallas Observer reported.

Alexander pleaded guilty in 2009 to causing serious bodily injury to a 2-year-old and was subsequently sentenced to probation, FOX 4 Dallas reported. His repeated probation violations led to a final sentence of two years in prison in August 2016, but a judge counted his years of probation against his two-year sentence, and he spent less than a month in jail.


[CtH: I sincerely hope that judge gets called to account by God for letting a child abuser walk!]

After Siding With Dems, Trump Responds to GOP Criticism With a Reminder
Trump, hearing the criticism, immediately pounced on the opportunity to send this reminder.

Donald J. Trump
✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump

Republicans, sorry, but I’ve been hearing about Repeal & Replace for 7 years, didn’t happen! Even worse, the Senate Filibuster Rule will….

Donald J. Trump
✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump

…never allow the Republicans to pass even great legislation. 8 Dems control – will rarely get 60 (vs. 51) votes. It is a Repub Death Wish!

Michelle Obama outshines all Democratic prospects for 2020

As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020.  This alternative plan requires a new, united opposition, led by a political leader with widespread popularity.  The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.

Thrown off the gravy train: The new director takes a hard look at EPA boondoggles

Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA routinely engaged with them in corrupt deals flavored with an excess of sugar and grease.

The EPA had been awarding millions of dollars to environmental groups that could collect the swag by filing a law suit against the agency. “When the EPA settles or loses those suits, it then awards the groups millions more in attorneys’ fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act,” Walter Olson of the Cato Institute says.

Democrats’ top problem in 2018: The math is still against them
Failing to appeal to working-class voters in key states won by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama was a key part of Hillary Clinton’s downfall. But Hillary’s problem went well beyond swing states; it was national. Overall, Trump won 2,622 counties, while Clinton only carried 490.  Why does this matter? Because there are simply not enough coastal seats to be won for Democrats to win the House.

MSNBC: Menendez Can ‘Hang On’ to Senate Seat ‘Months’ After Corruption Conviction
“Chris Christie’s term is up…he will be out of the office by the second week of January. So if you were to get a conviction of Menendez in the near-term future, the challenge for Menendez…is could he hang on for a couple months until a Democrat becomes governor of New Jersey?,” Kornacki wondered. He assured the show’s liberal panelists: “I’m almost sure he would do this and I’m almost sure Democrats in the Senate would have his back in doing this.”

DeVos Takes on Lawless Campus Tribunals
According to a study released this week by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, 73.6 percent of America’s top universities don’t guarantee students a presumption of innocence, fewer than half require that fact-finders be impartial, and a full 58.5 percent of institutions don’t “provide students with a meaningful opportunity to cross-examine witnesses” in cases of sexual misconduct. And this is a partial list of university legal failures. All told, 45 of the 53 rated colleges received a “D” or “F” for their commitment to due process.

Hillary Grants First Book Interview to CBS and Jane Pauley — Her Soggiest Sob Sister
CNN’s Tom Kludt reported “the booking is a coup” – CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley will get the first TV interview with Hillary Clinton since her defeat at Trump’s hands in 2016, airing Sunday. Then Kludt noted CBS owns Hillary’s publisher Simon & Schuster, so there’s really no “coup” there at all.

Brace Yourselves For IMPACT- Illegal Alien Sitcoms Headed To CBS And CW
The shows, entitled Have Mercy and Illegal (not exactly subtle) focus on illegal aliens who are struggling to achieve their full potential in the United States.

Have Mercy will air on CBS, and stars a Latina doctor who cannot practice medicine after immigrating to Miami. After being denied the RIGHT to pursue her life’s passion, the aforementioned doctor gets to work in a shabby, makeshift clinic as a way to give back to her community. How heartwarming.

Illegal, in contrast, stars a teenage boy who is struggling to come to terms with his family’s status as illegal immigrants while also staying in school, making good grades, and dealing with puberty and all of the wonderful things that accompany being a teenager.

News Notes

Climate Liar … I mean Activist … Josh Fox wants other people to hug terrorists.

Remember when the Obama administration said that the Washington Redskins could no longer have copyright protection because their team name was offensive? Guess what? The Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that the Obama administration got it wrong and that there is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment. This will have huge implications for Christians.

President Trump has called a halt to federal reporting requirements related to possible computer disruptions due to the Y2K bug. Gosh … it only took seventeen years! And I remember when Candidate Obama promised to go through the federal budget with a scalpel to cut out stupid and wasteful expenditures. Pretty dull scalpel. ::snort::

The Environmental Protection Agency is scrapping the department’s nearly $1 million in free gym memberships for employees. It’s about damn time they stopped such an egregious abuse of taxpayer funds.

Another reason to NOT move to California. Lawmakers in liberal California have committed $50 million in taxpayer funding for legal services and representation for illegal aliens.

Canada is rapidly throwing off its reputation for being a nation of nice people. Canada’s Senate passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training. The bill now only needs royal assent from the governor general.

The North Korean communist regime detained an American citizen for removing a propaganda poster from a hotel wall. After more than a year in the tender care of the NoKos, Otto Warmbier has died. President Trump condemned the ‘brutal’ North Korean regime and called Warmbier’s family to offer his condolences.

Nikki Haley on Climate Agreement

Climate 5 years

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., on Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“We’ve always been a leader when it comes to the environment,” Haley said. “We don’t need India, and France, and China telling us what they think we should do.”

Kaos! Klimate Kooks Kry Kalamity!

Sometimes it appears Trump gets a sadistic kind of pleasure making liberals lose their minds. He announced yesterday the United States is pulling out of the phony climate agreement made by the FORMER preezy, who pledged billions of US taxpayer dollars to help third world toilets “fight the scourge of climate change.” China, by the way, has pledged zero dollars. Not dime one, and they along with India are two of the biggest polluters on the planet.
Predictably, the left is in total meltdown, since the climate hoax is one of their sacred cows. All these dumbasses are convinced the world will erupt in flames tomorrow. It would be humorous were it not so pathetic.


I wanted to say a few things about President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord — AKA the World’s attempt to extort American taxpayers while killing American jobs.

But first, I thought I’d take you on a little trip down memory lane.

Come with me to late 2015, my friends.

Journey with me to Paris when these world leaders were playing Barack Obama like a cheap banjo.

Instead of representing the people of the United States, Obama bent over backwards and let these countries extort us with wild abandon.

And during a Paris press conference, Obama had this exchange with a reporter:

This “Paris Climate Accord” has nothing to do with saving the planet.

The purpose was clear from the start. It was the world’s attempt to extort us. Nothing more.

In ditching Paris deal, Trump does right by America and the world

In quitting the Paris Accord, President Trump on Thursday did nothing to shift the course of US environmental policy — not even on carbon emissions. But he did put the world on notice that no president can unilaterally commit this nation to such far-reaching agreements.

The Constitution is clear: No treaty is binding on the US government unless ratified by the Senate. That tanked the Kyoto Protocol, a 1997 anti-warming treaty that the Senate rejected 95-0. And it would’ve killed the Paris deal that President Obama signed in 2016 — except that his negotiators shaped an “agreement” that wouldn’t go to the Senate.

But one that still would’ve been used to rewrite US law, if the courts went along. (And a President Hillary Clinton’s judicial picks would have ensured that they did.)

Trump: Time to Put Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania Before Paris

President Donald Trump gave a shout-out to the “forgotten” industrial heartland that delivered him the White House as he announced America’s unilateral withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords Thursday.
“I was elected to help the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump told those gathered in the White House Rose Garden, as he gave a forceful economic-nationalist condemnation of the global climate agreement, under which the United States is to meet progressively lower caps on certain emissions while subsidizing developing countries in the hope they do the same.

‘Traitorous Act of War’: Liberals Angrily React to Trump Pulling Out of Paris Agreement

Billionaire environmentalist and Democratic donor Tom Steyer even said that Trump’s actions were an act of war against the American people.

COMPLETE LEFTIST MELTDOWN After Trump Dumps Paris Climate Accord
The White House audience today broke out in applause when President Trump announced the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord.
What a wonderful day for the American worker!
But not for liberal elites.
They suffered a COMPLETE MELTDOWN!

Crybaby Obama Attacks POTUS Trump For Pulling Out of Paris Climate Accord
The cost of the climate deal was $3 trillion.
Trump decided to stand with the American worker and against globalist elites.

Democrats Plot ‘Revolution’ To Circumvent Trump’s Paris Decision

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio vowed to issue an executive order soon to honor the goals of the Paris accord, which is to keep future global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.

Democratic governors of California, New York and Washington also announced the creation of the United States Climate Alliance. Govs. Jerry Brown, Andrew Cuomo and Jay Inslee all vowed to meet the Paris Agreement goals.

“We will not ignore the science and reality of climate change which is why I am also signing an Executive Order confirming New York’s leadership role in protecting our citizens, our environment, and our planet,” Cuomo said.

“If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up,” Brown said.

Environmentalists Call Trump’s Trashing Of Global Warming Deal A ‘Suicide Note For Earth’

“Donald Trump [is] issuing a suicide note for the rest of the world, including, ultimately, for the people of the United States, as well,” Kumi Naidoo, the former head of Greenpeace, told Democracy Now in an interview Thursday.

Trump announced Thursday he would withdraw the U.S. from the Paris accord, but he also said the U.S. may rejoin the agreement if they can get a fair deal. Environmentalists were still freaking out.

Enviro-Fraud and the Former Messiah

Thought I’d throw a couple different things together.

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’

The study claims to have “proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false,” according to a press statement put out by Drs. Jim Wallace, John Christy, and Joe D’Aleo. Wallace, Christy and D’Aleo — a statistician, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively — released a study claiming to invalidate EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, which allowed the agency to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.

Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy

Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

Obama to net $400K for Wall Street speech: report
The former president’s reported speaking fee is nearly twice the price commanded by Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Obama reappeared on the public stage Monday, making his first public remarks since leaving the White House at the future site of his presidential library.
The former president did not mention President Trump or offer political commentary during his appearance at the University of Chicago.

Josh Earnest: Obama will jump in and criticize the new administration if Trump crosses any, er, “red lines”
I know what you’re thinking because I’m thinking it too, as is everyone who worked for the Obama administration on foreign policy: “Since when does Obama enforce red lines?”
Actually I suspect you’ll find him enforcing lots of moral “red lines” in the future, now that all that’s required of him is giving a speech to an adoring media peppered with lots of that’s-not-who-we-ares. That was 80 percent of his presidency but it’ll be 99 percent of his retirement.
Enjoy the irony of Earnest flagging as an example of a “red line” any potential efforts by Team Trump to start rounding up and deporting DREAMers. I … don’t think you need to worry, Josh. Things change but DACA stays the same!

Obama Uses Race Card To Take Shot At Hillary Clinton

Obama was telling the panel about how he visited with at-risk youth on Sunday ahead of his appearance at the University of Chicago.
“If the six of you had been in that conversation, you would have come away not saying ‘these are some thugs or super-predators that I can’t relate to.’ You’d actually say, ‘man, if I had gone through what they went through I’m not sure how things would have worked out me either,’” Obama told the panel.
Obama choice of the term “super-predator” is an apparent reference to comments that Hilary Clinton made in 1996 that caused a considerable backlash in both of the Clintons’ presidential campaigns.

Up to 60 Teens Swarm San Francisco Commuter Train, Robbing and Beating Passengers
Officials say the robbery was planned like a Blitzkrieg with the teens swarming the station, forcing the traindoors open, rushing into the train and robbing passengers, and then disappearing into an East Oakland neighborhood — all in a matter of minutes.
The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood.
Police will not release the video or still shots of the surveillance for fear that some of the suspects are minors
Whenever someone complains about the media blackout on the racial makeup of criminals and thugs, the response is usually something like “it’s not relevant to the story” or “we don’t want to upset the local minority community by appearing to single out criminals.”
My response is always: How can the race of the perpetrator not be relevant to the story? Or the race of the victim for that matter.

3 arrested after mob attacks officers at California college event

As the officers got out of the car, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground

Three men were arrested following an attack on Davis police officers who encountered a group of people blocking traffic on a busy roadway during Saturday’s Picnic Day at UC Davis.
The annual campus open house has become known in recent years for violence and drunken mayhem, mainly on the streets of the normally quiet college town.
A hostile group quickly surrounded the vehicle. Several people began yelling threats at the officers in the car, and one person pretended he was pulling a gun on the officers, the news release said.
As the officers got out of the car and began to identify themselves as police, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground. Police reported that the officers were kicked and punched in the head, and one officer was struck on the side of the head with a bottle.
As they were being assaulted, the officers could see people in the crowd taking video of the attack on their cell phones, according to the news release.

Taxifornia Committing Suicide

Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. California has a certifiably insane governor and hordes of clueless nitwits infected by the scourge of liberalism. As Jesus said, “Father, forgive them. They know not what they do.”
They know what they do, they just don’t realize the consequences for their actions… or don’t care. It is unfortunate that the rational people of the state are compelled to suffer along with the young and the feckless.

Taxifornia Does It Again

Taxation: California’s far-left government has done it again. Not realizing its real problems are excessive spending on misplaced priorities, excessive taxes, too much debt and a far-too generous welfare state, its legislature working in cahoots with Gov. Jerry “tax-and-spend” Brown has pushed through the largest tax hike in state history.

In California’s one-party state — everything in the state, everything, is controlled by the Democratic Party and its union allies — the governor and legislature rushed through a massive tax hike on gas and diesel fuel along with higher car registration fees with hardly anyone realizing it.

The state’s already highest-in-the-nation gasoline tax will rise 19.5 cents a gallon, while diesel will go up 20 cents. Meanwhile, car owners will also see their registration fees rise from $25 to $175, depending on vehicle value. Electric car owners get hit with a special $100 tax, since they don’t use gasoline.

All told, the new taxes are expected to collect $5.2 billion a year.

Nearly $1 billion in side deals cemented legislative vote to raise California’s gas tax
“Democrats just gave us the largest gas tax increase in state history — a deal so bad they needed $1 billion in pork to buy the votes to pass it,” said Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley. “California deserves better.”
Similar proposals have languished for years, but Brown and legislative leaders set a quick-turn April 6 deadline for action, hoping to pressure a compromise before the Legislature’s spring break — ahead of big debates to come in 2017 on the state budget and hundreds of bills.

Republican Backed Jerry Brown’s Gas Tax for $400 Million Pork Project

One of the more prominent deals was the one that secured the vote of State Sen. Anthony Canella (R-Ceres), who was the only Republican in either chamber to support the measure, which includes raised fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

That side deal turns out to have been the costliest of all, amounting to $400 million in pork for “the extension of the Altamont Corridor Express, a commuter rail line between the Bay Area and Central Valley.”

Canella’s vote was crucial, because moderate State Sen. Steve Glazer (D-Orinda) opposed the gas tax, explaining in a statement published by the East Bay Times that it was unnecessary to raise taxes rather than re-directing spending from the costly high-speed rail project.
There are no moderates in California…they just all come with different price tags

California’s Super-Bloom Endangered by Special Snowflakes

The significant winter rains that California has experienced this year has led Governor Jerry Brown to declare the official drought officially over:

Startlingly green hills, surging rivers and the snow-wrapped Sierra Nevada had already signaled what Gov. Jerry Brown made official Friday: The long California drought is over.

However, the state’s nature lovers are failing to follow some common sense rules related to enjoying the beauty and are trampling over the delicate flowers they have flocked to admire.

One of the most spectacular areas is the Wildflower Trail at Diamond Valley Lake, which is a reservoir outside Hemet. A portion of the trail was shut down March 29 and was reopened Wednesday, just five days a week. Extra staff has been added to the area to police visitors, and new signs warn people to stay on the trails.

“It happened sort of suddenly, people started disregarding the rules and trail guides,” Picht told the Los Angeles Times. “You can’t really blame them, but at the same time, we couldn’t allow that.”

In other words, these special snowflakes are killing the flowers.

Anti-Gas Pipeline Activists Need Gas Money

Pipeline protesters

Anti-pipeline activists squatting  in West Texas have set up a donation page … because they need gas money to relocate to Kansas.

Demonstrators hoped to use DAPL-style tactics against Trans-Pecos … cuz we all know how well THAT worked!

The pipeline is due to open in the next week or so.  Once the gas start flowing, gas prices should come down.
