He is protecting his tribe
[PJMedia] When President Biden signed his executive order for a review and update to ICE enforcement procedures, he also put Operation Talon on hold. Operation Talon is a nationwide ICE operation that arrests and removes convicted sex offenders illegally in the United States. The effects of this order have been immediate, with the cancelation of a joint operation to arrest at-large sex offenders:
ICE had been planning a nationwide operation in partnership with the U.S. Marshals targeting at-large sex offenders, but it was scuttled by the new directive. According to one of my ICE sources, most of the targets do not clearly meet the new standards, especially in California, where sex offenders routinely get to plead down to far lesser charges, especially if it helps them avoid deportation, and where certain sex crimes, such as sex with a minor, are not classified as felonies as they are in other states. Another ICE officer told me that they had more than two dozen deportable sex offender targets at large in his area who now will be free to re-offend.
As Biden has essentially thrown open the border to migrant caravans and the cartels that traffic human beings over the border, reducing the enforcement in this area is appalling. His executive order halted most immigration enforcement, with "aggravated felons" being the notable exceptions—but only if their aggravated felony occurred in the last ten years. According to a list compiled by the Center for Immigration Studies, illegal immigrants with the following convictions and in the following numbers will no longer meet the criteria for deportation:
Sexual Assault: 1,478
Sex Offense: 825
Smuggling Aliens: 603
Lewd or Lascivious Acts with a Minor: 505
Sexual Exploitation of a Minor: 231
[EpochTimes] YouTube took down a newly recorded interview with former President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... in Google’s latest action against conservatives.
A Newsmax spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email that the company was told the Feb. 17 interview was removed because it violated YouTube’s community guidelines.
A Google spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email: "We have clear Community Guidelines that govern what videos may stay on YouTube, and we enforce our Community Guidelines consistently, regardless of speaker and without regard to political viewpoints."
"In accordance with our presidential election integrity policy, we removed this video from the Newsmax TV channel," the spokesperson added.
The set of policies cited is aimed at preventing spam, scams, and deceptive practices, the Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,-based company says. Included is a policy implemented late last year. Google said in announcing the policy that it would remove "content that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election."
Trump during the Newsmax interview alleged he won the 2020 election, among other claims.
Trump made similar claims in interviews with Fox News this week. Those remain on YouTube.
The former president also spoke with One America News. That network hasn’t uploaded videos for approximately one month.
Newsmax later posted a video of host Greg Kelly, who interviewed Trump, summarizing and playing portions of the interview. That video remains live.
[Townhall] Millions of Americans are out of work due to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Thousands more are unemployed because of President Joe Biden's decision to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline. Despite the tough times, progressive Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) believes "now is the right time" for Congress to press forward with a $15-an-hour minimum wage, something they tied to the latest COVID relief package.
According to Khanna, Amazon and Target made a decision to raise their minimum wage to $15-an-hour across the nation. As a result, Khanna says, the companies have produced more jobs (yet he doesn't take into account that more people are shopping online due to lockdown restrictions and the pandemic).
The most concerning aspect, however, is Khanna knows pushing up the minimum wage would be detrimental to small businesses, yet he doesn't care.
"Businesses like Amazon and McDonald's, for example, can and perhaps should, pay more, but I'm wondering, what is your plan for smaller businesses?" CNN's Abby Phillip asked. "How does this, in your view, affect mom and pop businesses who are just struggling to keep their doors open, keep workers on the payroll right now?"
"Well, they shouldn't be doing it by paying people low wages," Khanna replied. "We don't want low-wage businesses. Most successful small businesses can pay a fair wage."
According to the congressman, if workers were paid for their productivity, they would be making $23-an-hour.
"I love small businesses. I'm all for it but I don't want small businesses that are underpaying employees," he said. "It's fair for people to make what they're producing and I think $15 is very reasonable in this country."
It would be easy to say the guy is out of touch with reality but it's far more likely he that he really is waging war against the middle class.
But this is also a war against entry level and unskilled workers. A $15 minimum wage means these workers are legally prohibited from competing for jobs with workers in other countries. I mean, try imposing a $15 minimum wage on China and see what happens.

Unfortunately, see Nancy Pelosi's remark about a glass of water with a (D) after it.
But that itself is a problem, grom. Besides, it is the height of hypocrisy to import billions of dollars, trillions, of goods from China where workers get more like, what, 15 cents an hour and then demand that private businesses in this country pay $15 an hour. This is madness. But then, that is the Democrat Party.

Businesses like Amazon and McDonald's, for example,
This fucking idiot won't admit that these two companies are leading the charge to automate and reduce the human workforce.
"Most successful small businesses can pay a fair [sic] wage.". What does this ass wipe know about running a business? What is this idiot's definition of success? Has this moron spoken with small business owners? (Rhetorical question.). What a filthy slob.
It seems we've forgotten that the 1st action of any nascent communist dictatorship is to destriy the middle class. Why is anyone surprised when a commie says they wish to do just that? We will play this game to our graves

On a 2013 visit to China, President Biden met with the chairman of the Chinese Communist Party’s top propaganda effort that seeks to "influence foreign governments and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies," The National Pulse can reveal.
A previously unreported-on press release from a U.S.-based Chinese Communist Party Consulate reveals that then-Vice President Biden participated in a welcome reception with Chinese Communist Party Vice President Li Yuanchao featuring Tung Chee-hwa:
Prior to the meeting, Li Yuanchao held a welcome ceremony for Biden at the North Hall of the Great Hall of the People. CPPCC Vice Chairman Tung Chee-hwa and others were present.
Tung Chee-hwa serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), which has been identified as the "highest-ranking entity overseeing" China’s United Work Front according to the U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission.
The effort, according to the U.S. government report, aims to "to co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party" and "influence overseas Chinese communities, foreign governments, and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies."
The December 2013 trip is the same trip President Biden’s son Hunter joined, which has come under intense scrutiny following Hunter Biden’s firm inking a $1.5 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government less than two weeks later.
[PJMedia] On Monday, the Supreme Court threw out several of the remaining challenges to the 2020 presidential election as moot, considering that former President Donald Trump ...the Nailer of NAFTA... conceded to Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...Candidate for president in 2020. We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created ... by the — you know — you know, the thing... , who has now become president. Yet Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented, arguing that the Supreme Court should have taken the opportunity to clarify election law, especially in the case of Pennsylvania.

This was a problem throughout Trump's presidency. He could not find good, conservative people to appoint. People like, Barr, Bolton, Haley, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Coney-Barrett took the jobs and then stabbed him in the back.

Don't count on the supreme court to save America from tyranny.
Seems like the next GOP candidate will have so surround themselves with hardcore zealot Libertarians so that we know they'll defend individual liberties and sane spending over other pet issues and pressures.
Justice Thomas in his own words - very powerful!
One wonders what this Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us. I respectfully dissent.”
By the way, CUck Roberts of course went along with the dismissal without writing a thing.
Now worries we will get them at the ballot box..... oh wait. Can’t wait to see all the new rules on leftist run states: mail in ballots without validation and 10 days late, non citizen votes count,,,,, and remember that the Supreme Court said thumbs up!
Michael Moore himself said in 2016 before November election that Trump would win because the only relief citizens have against Washington is voting. And America was sending the biggest FU message to Washington DC elitists. Well the elites have spoken in 2020/2021: voting does not matter”.
[WION] The US Supreme Court put a new New York grand jury on the brink of getting eight years of Donald Trump’s tax returns and other financial records, ending months of delay by rejecting his bid to keep the information private.
The decision, the second time the Apex court has weighed in on the matter, was announced in an order with no noted dissents. The news further imperils the ex-president, who is facing investigations in New York and elsewhere.
The development is a brutal defeat for the former president. Trump has dismissed the Manhattan prosecutors' investigation as a political "witch hunt" and has fought all the way to the high court to keep his tax returns under wraps.
Because of the secrecy of grand jury proceedings, the decision does not mean Trump's financial records will become public.
Trump has been waging a protracted legal battle to prevent his tax records from being handed over to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
"Because of the secrecy of grand jury proceedings, the decision does not mean Trump's financial records will become public."
They'll be leaked to the public within a month.
There will be nothing in there. Trump's taxes are not done by Trump the day before Tax day. they are don't be a horde of the best tax attorneys and most certainly gone over by the IRS with a fine toothed comb already.

Honestly! With all of the multi-state and multinational investments Trump's financial tax documents must fill a warehouse by now. With everyone auditing him the Occam's Razor supposition is that "Trump is about a clean as you can be in a world where, as the saying goes, 'Everyone breaks at least four laws every day' .
[NationalPulse] President Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Senior Adviser on China in Policy Planning Mira Rapp-Hooper served as fellows at Yale’s Paul Tsai China Center, which has taken millions in Chinese Communist Party cash and counts Chinese government and military-linked individuals as fellows and speakers, The National Pulse can reveal.
The center re-established itself in 2016 following a $30,000,000 donation from the son of the late Paul Tsai, Vice Chairman and co-founder of Alibaba Joseph Tsai. Alibaba, founded by Jack Ma, has close financial and personnel ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
Joseph Tsai is also a "patron" of the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), a Chinese Communist Party-backed grouped exposed by The National Pulse for sponsoring trips to China for journalists and politicians in exchange for "favorable coverage" and part of the country’s United Front efforts "to co-opt and neutralize sources of opposition to the Chinese Communist Party" and encourage "positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies."
The Paul Tsai China Center was also singled out in a Department of Education (DOE) letter requesting financial records relating to cash—estimated to be around $375 million—the Ivy League university has taken from foreign governments but failed to report.
The center describes its purpose as "helping advance China’s legal reforms, improving U.S.—China relations, and increasing understanding of China in the United States" and "works collaboratively with a broad range of top experts in the Chinese government, universities, and civil society" to do so.
But in reality, the center collaborates extensively with the Chinese Communist Party and its American enablers.
