De Blasio Goes Full Commie – Introduces Plan to Allow Government to Seize Private Property

by Nwo Report

New York City Mayor De Blasio introduced a plan this week that would allow the government to seize private property from “bad landlords.”

“When a landlord tries to push out a tenant by making their home unlivable, a team of inspectors and law enforcement agents will be on the ground to stop it in time. If the fines and the penalties don’t cut it, we will seize their buildings and we will put them in the hands of a community nonprofit that will treat tenants with the respect they deserve,” Bill de Blasio said according to the NY Daily News.

Bill de Blasio made these shocking remarks during his yearly State of the City address which left one Assembly member saying, “My first reaction was, ‘Is this communist Cuba?’”

State Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, who ran against De Blasio in the 2017 mayoral race, told Fox News, “I can say that as a daughter of Cuban refugees who fled Castro’s Cuba in 1959, this is what happened to her family, she had her home taken, my grandfather had his gas station taken.”

“This is extreme even for Mayor de Blasio, because we know that he has socialist leanings, but this is straight communism and I think it’s very scary to America-loving, democracy-loving people.”

According to the communist Mayor’s website, the city is “pursuing new local law to seize upwards of 40 of the most distressed multiple dwelling buildings annually and transition them to responsible, mission driven ownership.”

De Blasio is on a big government communist roll — he recently promised healthcare for all city residents, including illegal aliens.

“Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it,” de Blasio said in a statement. “While the federal government works to gut health care for millions of Americans, New York City is leading the way by guaranteeing that every New Yorker has access to quality, comprehensive access to care, regardless of immigration status or their ability to pay.”

 

De Blasio has also floated the prospect of running for president in 2020.

Tick-Tock: Sean Hannity Says Trump Is Holding 5 Different Buckets of information on Deep State Corruption at Top Levels (Audio)

by Nwo Report

Tick-Tock–

Sean Hannity told his radio audience today that President Trump is holding “five different buckets” of information that will reveal deep state corruption at the top levels.

If this is true the President better act soon.
Whoever is telling him to hold on to this information is giving him bad advice.

Transcript via Media Matters:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Comey deserved to be fired. Sally Yates deserved to be fired. A lot, frankly, there are a bunch of people still there that need to be fired. And if we’re going to have equal justice under the law, which I hope the new attorney general will bring, and equal application of our laws, then a lot of things are going to change very very quickly here. And maybe we’re beginning to see the work of John Huber, who was appointed by Jeff Sessions, you know, on leak issues, maybe now that work is coming to fruition. We still have Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General, he is to report back on FISA abuse, we already know that did take place. We know that the president has five different buckets of information that he’s holding, in his hand, that will reveal corruption at levels we never dreamed or we never thought of.

Renegade Judge, w/out a Jury, Blocks Citizenship Question on 2020 Census

Renegade Judge, w/out a Jury, Blocks Citizenship Question on 2020 Census 1

(Bob Van Voris and Chris Dolmetsch, Bloomberg News) A federal judge blocked the Trump administration’s plan to put a question about citizenship on the 2020 census, which will help determine U.S. elections, congressional seats and federal funding decisions for a decade.

The ruling comes after a two-week trial in Manhattan that the government sought more than a dozen times to derail.

The Supreme Court may have the last word.

It’s hearing an appeal related to the trial in February in hopes of handing down a decision before the Census Bureau has to finalize its questionnaire.

“Hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of people will go uncounted in the census if the citizenship question is included,” U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman said in a 277-page opinion.

“In arriving at his decision as he did, Secretary (Wilbur) Ross violated the law,” Furman said, adding the secretary “violated the public trust” in doing so with respect to the census.

The Administrative Procedures Act requires an agency to “consider all important aspects of a problem,” study relevant evidence and come to a conclusion supported by it, comply with procedures and laws and explain the facts and reasons for the decision, Furman said.

Ross’s decision “fell short on all these fronts,” the judge said.

Furman, who held the trial without a jury, dealt with the first of several lawsuits filed by dozens of states and cities to block the question from the once-a-decade survey, where it hasn’t appeared since 1950.

As the first, it will encourage the plaintiffs in the New York case as well as those in similar lawsuits in California and Maryland likely to go to trial early next year, said Margo Anderson, a retired professor of history and urban studies at the University of Wisconsin, who opposes the question.

The ruling ignores both the law and the history of the census, said Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington who manages the group’s Institute for Constitutional Government.

Federal law gives the commerce secretary the full authority to determine what questions will be used on the survey, he said, and a citizenship question was first asked in 1820 and is currently included on the annual American Community Survey, which goes to about one out of every 36 households.

“It will also prevent us from getting accurate census data on citizens and noncitizens from across the country — since the ACS is limited in scope — which is vital in enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, distribution of federal funds and having an informed debate about immigration policy,” von Spakovsky said.

Nancy Pelosi Allowed Family to Use Air Force One, Documents Reveal

by Nwo Report

Nancy Pelosi allowed family to use Air Force One, against normal rules

Documents from the United States Air Force (USAF) reveal that Nancy Pelosi abused her position to fly family members for free in government aircraft.

Public interest group Judicial Watch obtained the documents in July 2011, which details flight manifests, expense summaries, copies of receipts and Congressional correspondence, and reveal a number of trips made by Speaker Pelosi in 2010.

The documents include:

  • A May 6-10, 2010, Congressional Delegation to Afghanistan and Germany “to discuss issues of mutual interest in Qatar and Afghanistan, as well as conduct oversight on women’s issues (troops) in Afghanistan and to visit with US troops and meet with government officials in Germany.” The total cost of military travel was $204,135.00. The records indicate then-Speaker Pelosi made a personal request that the “maximum per diem allowance be made available at the enhanced rate of an additional $50.”
  • Numerous trips were made by Speaker Pelosi between San Francisco and Andrews Air Force Base. Several of these trips included members of Speaker Pelosi’s family, including her husband, daughter, granddaughters and son-in law. For example, one “Staff Summary Sheet” detailing a January 4, 2010, flight from San Francisco to Andrews Air Force Base notes that Pelosi’s daughter Christina “owes for $99.00 (flight) and $7.82 (meal).” The documents suggest that the Speaker’s office was billed for the fees but do not indicate whether the bills were paid.
  • A January 7-11, 2010, Congressional Delegation to Detroit, Michigan, for the expressed purpose of reviewing “the impact of congressional appropriations and policy in promoting innovation, technological development and job creation in US auto industry.” The Detroit trip required $24,336.60 in commercial air travel and an additional $10,046.87 in expenses. The Pentagon also paid for military escorts for the trip.
  • One document notes that the mode of transportation for the trip would be “Comair and Milair,” (commercial air travel and military air travel). However, the only cost related to the military portion of the transportation detailed in the records is a $15,000 advance secured for ground transportation, meals and lodging. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) drove himself to Detroit and sought $228 in mileage reimbursement. A total of 24 House Members (16 Democrats, 8 Republicans), led by then-Speaker Pelosi and then-Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), were on the list of trip participants.

Judicialwatch.org reports: Overall, according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch in January 2011, Pelosi used the Air Force aircraft for a total of 43 trips, covering 90,155 miles, from January 1 through October 1, 2010.

Judicial Watch, through FOIA, continues to pursue other records related to Pelosi’s use of Air Force aircraft.Previous documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the former Speaker’s military travel cost the USAF $2,100,744.59 over one two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

Judicial Watch also previously uncovered internal Department of Defense (DOD) documents email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi’s numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker’s last minute cancellations and changes.

For example, in response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one DOD official wrote, “Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi’s team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?…[T]here’s no need to block every weekend ‘just in case’…”

The email also notes that Pelosi’s office had, “a history of canceling many of their past requests.”

Judicial Watch also uncovered emails from the DOD that show the Pentagon worked hand-in-hand with congressional offices prior to releasing documents regarding congressional military travel under the FOIA.

These “heads up” emails involved FOIA requests filed by Judicial Watch, The Wall Street Journal, Congressional Quarterly and Roll Call, among other organizations, related to the use of military aircraft by a number of congressional members, including Pelosi.

Following numerous press reports documenting Pelosi’s misuse of military air craft, current House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would fly commercial between his home district and Washington, DC.

Nevertheless, Judicial Watch has initiated a separate investigation into travel since Republicans took control of the House.

“These documents further detail former Speaker Pelosi’s shameless abuse of military air craft during her tenure as House Speaker. Providing sweetheart travel deals for her adult children are an abuse of her high public office,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“But this scandal is much larger than Speaker Pelosi, as the massive Detroit Auto Show junket shows. Members of the House are able to obtain permission from the Office of the Speaker for the use of military luxury and military-supported travel for congressional delegation trips. These trips, known as CODELs, have exploded in number and cost. Speaker Boehner needs to reform this abuse of our military’s assets. For all the recent talk about corporate luxury jets here in Washington, the American people might be surprised to learn the Air Force has an entire wing of luxury jets (in addition to President Obama’s Air Force One planes) for the use of congressmen and top administration officials.”

New federal rules would let drones fly at night and over crowds

Unmanned aircraft being flown over large house.

Timothy B. Lee

The Federal Aviation Administration proposed Monday to relax rules governing commercial drone operations. Since 2016, the FAA has allowed the commercial operation of unmanned aerial vehicles weighing less than 55 pounds under certain limited circumstances. New rules proposed this week would relax two of the restrictions in the 2016 rules: drones will now be allowed to operate at night, and they’ll be able to operate over people.

The agency already allows some nighttime flights, but only on a case-by-case basis. The agency says that since 2016, it has received thousands of requests for waivers for nighttime operations and granted 1,233 of those requests. The FAA says that it hasn’t had any reports of accidents due to these nighttime operations. So the new FAA proposal would allow people to operate drones at night without special permission from the agency—provided the operator gets extra training and that the drone has lights that are visible from three miles away.

Current rules prohibit commercial drone operations over people who aren’t directly involved in operating the vehicle. The new rules would allow drones to fly over people if the drone manufacturer certifies that doing so is safe. Specifically, manufacturers would need to demonstrate that in the event of a malfunction, the drone won’t fall with more than an FAA-defined maximum of kinetic energy (either 11 or 25 foot-pounds, depending on the situation).

One way to comply with this requirement would be to make a drone out of light-enough materials that the device doesn’t reach a very high speed in freefall. But drone manufacturers have the option of developing other mechanisms to prevent bystander injuries and submit these to the FAA for approval.

The new rules would also require that drones flown over people would not have exposed propeller blades capable of causing injuries.

The new rules also come with one other big caveat: the FAA says it won’t finalize them until it has completed work on a drone identification system. Law enforcement agencies worry that drones could be used for terrorism or other nefarious purposes, so they’ve pressed for a mechanism to automatically identify the owner and purpose of drones in a particular area.

Ordinarily, it takes 12 to 18 months for an initial rule to become a final rule. But the FAA’s promise to develop a drone identification system first could delay these rules for months more. That means the rules may not be finalized until 2021 or later.

New rules could open up significant new applications

The development of drone technology has far outpaced the evolution of FAA rules. As a result, a lot of people are waiting for the rules to change to enable new uses of drone technology.

Michael McKisson, a University of Arizona journalism professor, points to drone journalism as one example. News organizations have long used airplanes and helicopters to capture footage of newsworthy events like protests, traffic jams, and natural disasters. But traditional aviation is expensive. “Any time they wanted aerial footage, they had to hire or own a helicopter,” McKisson points out.

Drones bring down costs dramatically, putting aerial photography within reach for many more news organizations. And relaxing the rule against operating over people could make a big difference, because many newsworthy events—protests, festivals, crime scenes—involve large numbers of people.

Brendan Schulman, a policy expert at leading drone maker DJI, points to search-and-rescue operations as another significant application for drones. “Flying at night is beneficial, because that’s a time of day when it can be very important to try to find missing people or in a disaster zone,” Schulman told Ars.

While the FAA is proposing to relax two of its rules, there are still significant limits on drone operations. Each drone must have a dedicated operator who supervises the flight from the ground. And this operator must have a direct line of sight to the drone.

These restrictions preclude some of the drone applications that could have the biggest economic impact. Way back in 2013, for example, Amazon predicted that it would begin delivering packages using drones within five years. More than five years later, that hasn’t happened, and the FAA rules are one reason why.

To be useful, a drone delivery service needs to fly beyond its operator’s line of sight, and the FAA doesn’t allow that yet. Moreover, to be economically viable, a drone delivery service would likely need to be semi-automated, with one operator supervising multiple delivery drones. But again, that would be contrary to current FAA rules.

Sen. McConnell: Senate will not go on recess is shutdown is ongoing

by Nwo Report

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says the upper chamber will not go on recess if the partial government shutdown is still ongoing.

McConnell made the comments to reporters on Tuesday after House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said the lower chamber will also not take a recess.

The Senate is supposed to leave town at the end of this week and not return until January, 28th.

McConnell is placing the blame for the shutdown squarely on democrats, telling reporters democrats priorities are “way out of whack.” He added issues once supported by prominent democrats are the same ones being opposed currently.

A number of senators have said they should remain in Washington during the shutdown as the record-setting closure continues.

Police Find Prayer Rugs at U.S.-Mexico Border

Police find prayer rugs at U.S. border

As the Democrats and mainstream media continue to deny that illegal immigrants pouring in from the border pose a danger, authorities in New Mexico say they have discovered ominous prayer rugs all along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

According to reports, ranchers and farmers near the border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties over the last few months.

Via The Washington Examiner: The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship.

“There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across.”

Her comments were part of a larger conversation about how many in the region believe migrants are coming to the U.S. illegally from all over the world, not just Central America.

Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, did not respond to multiple interview requests. But CBP’s Arizona region issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that said agents had arrested people from across the world over the past five days.

The rancher, who lives with her family in a remote, southwestern part of the state, said the discoveries raise questions about how many people who illegally entered the U.S. in Hidalgo County, N.M., traveled thousands of miles from overseas to sneak across the southern border.

She is one of just a few hundred residents of Animas, N.M., a tiny town that sits between the international border and the Border Patrol’s Lordsburg Station, which is 95 miles north of the boundary.

The few hundred residents there have no local police department. They rely on the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department and U.S. Border Patrol to help when they need it, but otherwise count on tips and support from one another because of the 40 miles that separate the community from the county headquarters in Lordsburg.

The rancher and six other residents of Animas told Washington Examiner this week that migrants from places other than Mexico and Central America are arriving.

“I’ve talked to several agents that I trust. There’s not a lot that I do trust, but the ones I do trust, I talk to them,” she said during a tour of her property. “What Border Patrol classifies as OTMs [other than Mexicans] has really increased in the last couple years, but drastically within the last six months. Chinese, Germans, Russians, a lot of Middle Easterners, those Czechoslovakians they caught over on our neighbor’s just last summer.”

Billy Darnell, a cattle rancher in Animas, said his neighbor had 18 women and children from the Philippines show up on his property last year. Border Patrol was called to the scene and took the group in.

Government data indicates six known or suspected terrorists were caught trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico from Oct. 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018. However, the Trump administration has stated on several occasions that 3,700 people who were identified as coming from countries with terrorism problems have also been apprehended at that border.

“We’ve talked about the thousands — the thousands of terror watchlist individuals who traveled through our hemisphere last year,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Fox News this month. “To pretend there’s not a danger on an unsecured border, on an open border, is just ridiculous. It belies common sense.”
