We sure got a lot of immigrants

Representative Steve King on rape & incest

Poor representative Steve King, he is already being punished for his sympathy with white nationalism which caused the Republican leadership to strip him of his seniority and his committee assignments. I wonder what they will do now.
“Steve King under fire for questioning if humanity would exist without 'rape and incest'”
Embattled Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Wednesday said the human population may not exist if not for rape and incest, drawing scorn — and renewed calls for resignation — from scores of Democrats.

King, who was speaking at an event in Urbandale, Iowa, was intending to make the case for a GOP policy that bans nearly all abortions, including in cases when the woman is a victim of rape or incest.
“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?" King said, according to the Des Moines Register, which first reported the comments.

"Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can't say that I was not a part of a product of that,”

Trump might be living on Barack Obama Avenue

More than 80,000 people have signed a petition urging the city of New York to rename a portion of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue — a stretch that includes Trump Tower — after former President Barack Obama.
If the petition is successful, Trump Tower, the heart of President Donald Trump’s real estate empire and where he maintains a residence, will boast a new address: 725 President Barack H. Obama Ave.

Woo hoo Republican congressman will go on trial in 2020


It’ll be good to have a Republican on trial for corruption in an election year.

“Duncan Hunter's trial pushed back, pending appeal of ruling”

Rep. Duncan Hunter won’t go on trial until next year on corruption charges that involve the spending of campaign cash on vacations, extramarital affairs and other items, a U.S. judge decided Tuesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Whelan changed the trial date from Sept. 10 to Jan. 14 after Hunter’s defense attorneys raised questions about whether an appeals court must first consider their motion to dismiss the case against the California Republican.

New Zealand gun buyback

Since the mass shootings at Christchurch mosques that killed 51 people, New Zealand’s government has purchased more than 10,000 firearms as part of a buyback program. The government there, by a vote of 119-1, outlawed most automatic and semiautomatic weapons and set aside NZ$150 million to buy the guns that are now illegal.

72% want illegals to have a path to legal status

A large majority of Americans says that there should be a way for undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. legally as long as they meet certain requirements, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.

The poll, which was released on Monday, found that 72 percent of Americans support granting legal status to immigrants who crossed into the U.S. illegally if they meet certain criteria. The figure represents a slight decline from a Pew survey conducted in March 2017, in which 77 percent of Americans said they were supportive of the idea.
Just 27 percent of overall respondents expressed opposition to finding a way for undocumented immigrants to have a path to legal status.

Pew noted the dip in support largely stems from changing views among Republicans.

Fifty-four percent of respondents who identified as Republican and Republican-leaning independents said they were supportive of granting legal status to undocumented immigrants while 45 percent were against the idea.

Just 38 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independents were against a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants in a 2017 Pew survey.

The survey also found that 42 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independents would support an initiative to deport every undocumented immigrant in the U.S.

Democrats overwhelmingly support granting legal status to undocumented immigrants if certain conditions are met. Eighty-seven percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning respondents said they were in favor of the idea.

Will Trump break the all-time deficit spending record?

“U.S. Budget Deficit Already Exceeds Last Year’s Total Figure”

The U.S. fiscal deficit has already exceeded the full-year figure for last year, as spending growth outpaces revenue.

The gap grew to $866.8 billion in the first 10 months of the fiscal year (fiscal years run from October 1 to September 30) , up 27% from the same period a year earlier, the Treasury Department said in its monthly budget report on Monday. That’s wider than last fiscal year’s shortfall of $779 billion -- which was the largest federal deficit since 2012.

So far in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1, a revenue increase of 3% hasn’t kept pace with a 8% rise in spending. While still a modest source of income, tariffs imposed by the Trump administration helped almost double customs duties to $57 billion in the period.

The single-largest budget deficit in U.S. history happened during the 2009 fiscal year. The U.S. clocked a $1.412 trillion deficit. For the first third of that year, President George W. Bush was in office, while for the last eight months, Barack Obama was in the White House.

State Department White Nationalist outed and placed on leave

“Matthew Gebert, a foreign-affairs officer in the State Department’s Bureau of Energy Resources, was placed on leave after the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch Initiative reported that he “oversaw the Washington, D.C.–area chapter of a white nationalist organization, hosted white nationalists at his home and published white nationalist propaganda online.” On a white-nationalist podcast in 2018, under the pseudonym Coach Finstock, he said: “We need a country founded for white people with a nuclear deterrent. And you watch how the world trembles.” The year before, on the same podcast, he said he was ready to lose his career in the name of white nationalism.”
