Chuck Norris Supports Cruz's EL CHAPO Legislation

Chuck Norris knows how the U.S.-Mexico border wall can be funded without spending a single taxpayer dollar: use money from Mexico’s most notorious drug lord, El Chapo.

To be fair, Sen. Ted Cruz deserves full credit for the idea, but Norris is throwing his full support behind it and is drawing attention to the important legislation the Texas Republican reintroduced last week.

"I have written many articles over the years, but I have never written an article more important than this one,” he wrote in an op-ed. “While Democrat and Republican leaders in Washington are polarized and in gridlock over how to pay for a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is a Lone Ranger with a Tonto-sized idea riding into town to get the job done in a way that would cost taxpayers nothing at all.”

Cruz’s bill, the EL CHAPO Act, “would reserve any amounts forfeited to the U.S. Government as a result of the criminal prosecution of “El Chapo” (formally named Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Lorea) and other drug lords for border security assets and the completion of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border,” according to a press release about the legislation’s reintroduction.

“Congress has a clear mandate from the American people: secure the border and build the wall,” Cruz said. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities. Indeed, I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our border. Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way to secure our southern border, and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals. By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and other murderous drug lords, we can offset the cost of securing our border and make meaningful progress toward delivering on the promises made to the American people.”

Dems push new law to REPEAL voter ID laws nationwide, allowing vote fraud to dominate the future of

If you were holding out hope that the Democratic majority in the House was serious when leaders like Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California pledged to do the people’s work, we’ve got some bad news for you.

It’s going to be a long two years. But hopefully, at the end of it, Democrats will have shown enough Americans just why they cannot — and should never again — be in charge.

As the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border worsens and the agencies charged with defending it against illegal immigrants are not being paid, thanks to Democratic refusal to work with POTUS Trump on a solution to reopen shuttered government agencies, the party of the donkey is more concerned with enshrining voter fraud into law.

As Democrats took the majority in the House of Representatives last week, they wasted no time in drafting legislation to remake the U.S. Constitution, shifting the rules in their favor. One bill would abolish the Electoral College. Another would make voter registration automatic, repeal voter ID laws, drastically limit free speech in politics, and create a system where the government funds particular candidates — all in one bill!

They truly hate America and its founding principles.

Second man found dead in California home of Democratic donor Ed Buck

OS ANGELES — A dead man was found early Monday in the Los Angeles-area apartment of the Democratic fundraiser Ed Buck, authorities said — the second time a body has been discovered in his home in the last year and a half.

The dead man, whose identity wasn't disclosed, was found at 1:05 a.m. (4:05 a.m. ET) in Buck's apartment in West Hollywood after someone called 911, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Charles Moore, who said that while the Homicide Bureau was investigating, the cause of death remained unknown.

Ed Buck at a town hall meeting for California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman in Los Angeles in September 2010. Chris Christie, then the governor of New Jersey, stepped off the stage and confronted Buck after he heckled Whitman from the audience.

Federal election records show that Buck, 63, who has advocated for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues for decades, has donated more than $53,000 to Democratic candidates and to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee since 2008.

Golly, some people just have rotten luck.

Minneapolis Little Mogadishu Sees 56 Percent Increase in Violent Crimes Caused by Somali Gangs

Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area.

Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude, Alpha News reports.

According to a 2014 Southside Pride article, the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years, and likely resulted in the murder of two Somali men in April 2014. That article notes that the summer of 2013 was a particularly bloody season for gang warfare, which produced at least 4 killings.

A 2013 CBS article detailed the involvement of the Outlaws, the Mafia, and another gang called the Lady Outlaws in a sex-trafficking ring that recruited and prostituted young girls, some whom were under the age of 14, between 2000 and 2010. The ring was operated out of Minneapolis, Columbus, and Nashville, and resulted in the indictment of 30 individuals involved.

In 2008, the Minneapolis Police Department created a Somali liaison position to focus solely on addressing the issue. The department currently has 5 Somali-speaking officers to assist in outreach to the immigrant community. According an MPR report from the time, officers began to notice that Somali gangs were dividing themselves along the same clan lines of their war-torn country.

The issue first garnered national attention after a 2009 CBS News report titled “Rise of Somali Gangs Plagues Minneapolis,” though officers were still hesitant at the time to pin the crimes on Somali gang activity.

“It was all gang activity, totally, 100 percent,” Shukri Adan, a Somali community organizer, said of the murders of seven Somali men in a 10-month period. Adan was tasked with drafting a report for the City of Minneapolis in which he estimated that between 400 and 500 Somali men were involved in gangs.

“The police don’t want to say that but everybody else knows that,” he added.

The latest rise in violent crimes in the Cedar-Riverside area comes as a concern to many, considering that city leaders have started to invest in security upgrades and community-outreach programs. In May, for instance, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced that a high-rise apartment complex at the center of little Mogadishu would be receiving an $825,000 security upgrade, including fencing, key fobs, and numerous security cameras.

In December, the Minneapolis City Council voted to divert $43,000 from the Minneapolis Police Department to create a youth outreach team for the area, Minnesota Daily reports.

“Everybody’s gotten to the point where, hey, you know, we don’t need more police, we need more intervention,” one organizer in attendance said. Several businesses in the area have joined together to hire off-duty police officers to patrol the area, while others are donating food and beverages to hand out to youth roaming the streets.

The Star Tribune reports that the latest uptick in violent crimes is mostly due to a surge in robberies and assaults.

Lines for salads out of control after eat healthy resolutions

They’ve gone from fast food to extremely slow salads.

New Yorkers trying to make good on “eat healthy” resolutions are mobbing salad joints — leaving many on long lines cursing their radicchio-strewn diets.

“You guys can go f–k yourselves!” one very hangry businessman in a Patagonia puffer vest was overheard telling his colleagues at lunchtime on Thursday, as he ditched the 100-plus-long line at Chopt on West 51st Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues.

“The last few days after New Year’s have been crazy because of the resolutions and people wanting to eat healthy,” said another business-suited, kale-clutching customer there.

“Yesterday, there was a line out the door,” Maya Dillon, 46, said as she left Just Salad at East 51st Street and Park Avenue.

“It’s always the busiest time of the year, right after New Year’s,” said one worker.

“Everyone decides to be healthier for their New Year’s resolution.”

It’s no wonder that nearby fast-food joints that offer less leafy lunches are seeing a slowdown.

“Usually, it’s very, very busy,” said a security guard Thursday at McDonald’s on East 42nd Street between Madison and Fifth avenues. “Today — very, very slow.”

It was also “extra slow” at the Chick-fil-A at East 42nd Street between Vanderbilt and Madison avenues, an employee told The Post.

“In December, there were a lot of tourists and it was very busy,” said another worker there.

“Now in January, you see a dip in business.”

Meanwhile, at Sweetgreen on East 55th Street, Julie Pastor, 30, had to wait in a line of 50 people to get her guacamole-and-greens bowl.

“The line was outside the door and wrapping around the sidewalk,” she said.

“It’s a psycho line,” agreed another customer.

Salad joints are feeding the ­frisée frenzy with seasonal promotions.

Sweetgreen offers a New Year’s resolution reward program; Chopt is hyping its lowest-calorie salads.

“New Year’s resolutions as easy as one, two, three — all under 400 calories,” Chopt says on its Facebook page.

Sales and lines do grow after New Years, said Sweetgreen co-founder Nicolas Jammet — but the company tries to offset that by encouraging online ordering, including through Outpost, a no-fee delivery service to corporate offices.

“We know resolutions can be hard, but our goal at Sweetgreen is to make eating real food easy,” said Jammet.

Gotta be careful. One of those "healthy" salads has almost 800 calories!

University Educator: Mowing Your Lawn & Acting Respectable Is Racist

Earlier this month, a university educator told the Madison Board of Education why things like civility, time limits and mowing your lawn indicates you are racist.

Seriously, I truly wonder how someone completed higher education courses and is teaching students with this kind of mental defect in their thinking.

The University of Wisconsin - Madison "educator" said that she teaches her students the alleged "connection" between white liberalism and white supremacy.

In doing so, she sought to provide "working definitions."

According to this "enlightened" individual, "white liberalism" means "valuing law and order and protocol above the lives of people."

No, seriously, I don't know how those things are inseparable. Law and order does value the lives of people, but to this person, they are at odds with one another because she does not know how to think logically or clearly.

"In this room, we see white liberalism and this is just from my students reflections," she said.

Some of what she claims is white liberalism are things like a "timer" and the calls to "please finish up" when someone's time is up. Other things include numbers, the sign up process, the stage, the barrier.

"All of these signs suggest that the law and the decorum and the civility of this conversation is actually more important than what is being said," this white "educator pontificated.

"Another aspect of white liberalism is policing people's tones of voice," she continued. "The obsession with civility, refusing to hear black and brown people when they aren't following white cultural norms of communication."

"For young people speaking today to you, what they're saying is a matter of life and death," she said without providing a shred of evidence for what she is claiming. "I'm not sure what it means to you, but I imagine it's a combination between a sense of duty, being able to put a line on a resume, feeling like someone needs to take charge, and feeling like you're the best person for the job."

"That's actually where the connection lands between white liberalism and white supremacy because it's by maintaining law and order and by maintaining civility by keeping your front lawn nice and tidy and by putting that 'all are welcome in our communities' sign on your front lawn, you are denying the fact that all the while you are with the other hand passing money to a deadly institution that polices with great disparity and causes tragic, tragic harm to the communities that are our neighbors and the communities that we actually should be building forward with."

What? What in the world does having a nice lawn and law and order and a sign that welcomes people have to do with any of this? It's like me saying that this woman took a shower and fixed her hair and put on makeup is somehow racist and detrimental to other ethnic groups. It's stupid! Who gave this woman a diploma?

"So telling black and brown people to please wrap up suggests that their voices, their pain and their stories are less important than rules and that in and of itself is the place where white liberalism turns into white supremacy is because white supremacy is the accumulation of these aggressive messages that say 'stay off the grass,' 'mow your lawn,' 'act respectable,' 'pull your pants up,' right?"

"So, if I was to raise my voice and start using god forbid some swear words to you, I don't believe that it would be received in quite the same way as it would be if a black or a brown youth were using those swear words so here's what I have to say 'fuck white liberalism and fuck white supremacy.'"

Of course, she got applause, but not for the idiocy she just uttered, but for her vulgar use of words at the end because it's clear from those in the background that they have no idea what she is talking about.

I suppose this "educator," if she lived according to her own rules would wear hear pants hanging off her rear end, keep a messy house, not abide by the law, fail to act respectable (ooops, she just did that in her last line) and a host of other things. I'll bet when a crime is committed against her, she calls the police and wants that law she is belligerent against to be enforced. She wants order and justice no matter what ethnicity the person is who committed the crime.

However, my guess is that she follows, for the most part, the very things she is berating. So, what would that make her? Yep, a white supremacist.

What a miserable excuse for a human being.

Mizzou Official Claims Tall Men Asking Out Short Women Could Constitute Sexual Misconduct

Getting up the courage to ask someone out on a date can already be nerve-racking, but now that college campuses have completely gone off the deep end, that fear will be intensified.

Today’s crazy comes from — unsurprisingly — the University of Missouri (Mizzou), best known for torpedoing its enrollment rates after campus protests led a professor to threaten a student journalist. An official at Mizzou indicated during a deposition that a male student who was physically larger than the female student he asked out may have violated the school’s Title IX policy because his physical size gave him “power over her.”

For years, we have been told that one must receive “affirmative consent” before anything of a dating or sexual nature takes place. Critics of such policies, such as this reporter, have often wondered what would happen if the mere ask is unwanted, does that also constitute sexual harassment or assault?

Now we appear to have our answer: Yes.

I would advise men to avoid asking out liberals/feminists in general.

Dying Olivia Newton-John Clinging On To Life To See Daughter Wed!

Olivia’s bodily functions appear to be shutting down Opens a New Window. , but she refuses to let go until she makes it through Chloe’s wedding day!” a source exclusively spilled to RadarOnline.com.

Newton-John’s illness brought her closer than ever to the 32-year-old daughter who followed in her beloved mother’s footsteps as a singer and actress.

“Seeing me with James has brought her a lot of joy. She is thrilled I’ve found my soul mate,” said Chloe, who has stayed by Olivia’s side as she continues her courageous fight for life. Opens a New Window.

The British-born star’s cancer nightmare began in 1992 when she found a lump in her right breast. At the time, she had a modified radical mastectomy, followed by reconstructive surgery.
