Senate Passes Budget Resolution Paving Way for Tax Reform
Budget cuts government spending by $5.1 trillion, creates surplus of $197 billion over next decade
The Senate passed the 2018 fiscal year budget resolution Thursday in a 51-49 vote, paving the way for tax reform.
The budget cuts government spending by $5.1 trillion and will create an on-budget surplus of $197 billion over the next decade due to economic growth and fiscal constraint. While the budget cuts nondefense discretionary spending by $632 billion, it offers the maximum level of spending towards defense.
According to David Primo, a budget expert at the Mercatus Center, the budget resolution is a plan, not a policy.
"All the Senate is doing this week is laying out the parameters for the real budget debate and votes over spending and taxes," Primo said. "The reconciliation instructions in the budget resolution are what will allow tax reform to avoid a filibuster, and thats why it is so important. But the real work begins after the budget resolution passes, and that will be working out the details of tax reform."

Barrasso Seeks Documents Related to Russia Uranium Investigation
Trump: 'That's your real Russia story'
Barrasso referenced letters he sent to former President Barack Obama in December 2010, and then-Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew in May 2015 raising concerns about the national security implications of Russia owning 20 percent of America's uranium supply.
"This transaction would give the Russian government control over a sizable portion of America's uranium production capacity," Barrasso wrote to Obama. "Equally alarming, this sale gives ARMZ [Uranium Holding Co.] a significant stake in uranium mines in Kazakhstan."
"As you know, Russia has a disturbing record of supporting nuclear programs in countries that are openly hostile to the United States," Barrasso said. "Russia has directly aided Iran's nuclear development and agreed on October 15, 2010 to help develop Venezuela's nuclear program. This record is at great odds with our own national security."
Barrasso received a response from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in March 2011, which defended the deal since it did not also give Uranium One a license to export uranium.
However, the New York Times reported that even without an export license, Uranium One had been exporting yellowcake to Canada by using a proxy transport company that was licensed.
Senate seeks to interview FBI informant in Russian nuclear bribery case
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday sought permission to interview an FBI informant who helped agents uncover a major corruption scheme by Russian nuclear officials seeking to aggressively expand their American business during the Obama administration.
The undercover witness, who has not been publicly identified, spent nearly five years helping agents build a case that resulted in one of Russia's top nuclear industry officials in the United States, a Russian financier and an American trucking executive to plead guilty in 2015 to charges related to a racketeering scheme that prosecutors said involved bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering.
The informant possesses information about the extent of Russian efforts to curry favor inside the United States that he has been prevented from disclosing to the courts and Congress because he signed an FBI nondisclosure agreement, his lawyer Victoria Toensing told The Hill on Tuesday.

Did Obama's DOJ Use the 'Trump Doss
Both the House and the Senate are investigating whether the former President Barack Obamas administration used intelligence in a salacious Trump Dossier as evidence before a secret federal surveillance court to obtain permission to spy on Donald Trump campaign aides and later his transition team.
Leaders in Congress are trying to find out if the Obama Justice Department and the FBI introduced the totally unsubstantiated material alleging unsavory connections between Trump and Russia before the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court, congressional aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The FBI used the dossier to secure permission to monitor the communications of Trump associate Carter Page, based on U.S. officials briefed on the Russia investigation, CNN reported in April.
5 shocking immigration trends ignored by the political class
The Center for Immigration Studies released a new report this week on immigration trends that blows sky-high all the myths perpetuated by the open-borders political establishment. It demonstrates that we are in uncharted waters and that the current trajectory will immutably transform America into something unrecognizable.
1. Record number of immigrants
According to Census figures, the nations immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 43.7 million in July 2016. However, the authors of the report cite DHS data that show the Census leaves out an estimated 1.9 million immigrants, meaning the immigrant population is really about 45.6 million. When you account also for immigrants U.S.-born minor children, that number rises to 60.4 million: nearly one in five people living in the entire country.
Why it matters:
Just 17 years ago there, were only 31 million immigrants, and in 1990 there were just 19.8 million. Weve never seen such growth before. While the percentage of immigrants as a share of the population, 13.5 percent, isnt a record high, its the highest level since 1910, which was at the height of the great wave. That was at a time when the country was still relatively new and filling up, assimilation was successful, there was no welfare state, and most importantly there was a shutoff 10 years later.
5. Muslim immigration one of the fastest-growing segments
The sending country with the largest percentage increase in the number of immigrants living in the United States since 2010 was Saudi Arabia (up 122 percent). Seven more predominantly Muslim countries were in the top 15 list: Afghanistan (up 74 percent), Syria (up 62 percent), Bangladesh (up 53 percent), Nigeria (up 40 percent), Iraq (up 39 percent), Egypt (up 32 percent), and Pakistan (up 28 percent). Two more Ghana and India (each up 37 percent) have a substantial Muslim minority. Overall, the immigrant population from predominantly Muslim countries is 2.8 million, up 29 percent from 2010, one of the sharpest increases of any group.
Why it matters:
This is self-explanatory. By importing the values and culture of the Middle East in large numbers, we are walking in the footsteps of Europe.
Flake is one. I hope he loses his race.
But the Flake appears to be correct. I cannot find anything in the GOP platform that makes a statement on illegals. The only items that come up when you use the search engine are about Clinton, Obama and illegals. Pathetic.
Demonic Clown Drag Queen Does Story Time at Michelle Obama Public Library
In what can only be described as an ironic venue, a demonic killer clown in drag was hired to read stories to preschoolers at the Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California.
This particular drag queen, named Xochi Mochi, calls himself a "killer clown from outerspace," "dragula," and "Super Monster." Consider for a moment that many children get scared when they go to see Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny and yet a public library children's librarian thought a visit with a killer clown would be fun!
This gives me nightmares. I can only imagine what my three-year-old would think. Long Beach isn't the first community to do this. They have jumped on the bandwagon that started in New York libraries, where virtue signaling parents haul their little ones to sit in the presence of drag queens so everyone will see how compliant with the new directives they are. Aren't they tolerant? Aren't they wonderful? Everyone clap for the useful idiots!
Libraries today are nothing more than an apparatus for injecting leftist ideology into children -- from pushing porn-filled books to indoctrinating them into the LGBTQ groupthink. Libraries have long been run by the ultra-leftist group, the American Library Association, which promotes anti-American programs like Muslim Journeys. This program brought Muslim imams into public libraries to proselytize to Americans about how "peaceful" Islam is.

Transgender Person On Trial For Sexually Assaulting 10-Year-Old Girl In Bathroom
The trial for Miguel Martinez, who goes by the name Michelle, began on Monday, the Billings Gazette reported. Martinez allegedly invited the young girl into the bathroom with him where he allegedly fondled the girls breasts and genitalia, before penetrating her.

Local media reports described Martinez as a family friend of the 10-year-old victim.
Martinez told police that the girl had been talking crap and dismissed the accusations as a publicity stunt, according to local reports.

Man Attacked While Riding Bus
Maryland police charged a black man with a hate crime after he allegedly spat in the face of a disabled white man and shouted all white people are evil.

Man sentenced on federal charge after bringing guns to anti-Islam event
Jaber in April attended a speaking event in Sioux Falls called "Sabotaging America: Islam's March Toward Supremacy," which featured speakers warning about the "dangers" of the religious faith. Jaber streamed video of himself on Facebook entering, then leaving the event and later expressed disdain that attendees would listen to the speakers.
In the video recorded from his car, Jaber showed five firearms that he had in the vehicle and said, "be scared."
Federal prosecutors on Monday argued that Jaber aimed to set off a violent reaction when he attended the event with firearms in tow. Defense attorneys, meanwhile, argued that Jaber legally carried the guns and had the right to express his disappointment about the event over social media.
Jaber faces separate charges in Minnehaha and Lincoln Counties related to his use of methamphetamine and making terrorist threats outside the event.
Jaber told the court that he was "heartbroken" to see the high attendance at the April speaking event. He had formerly worked as a waiter and bartender and said he was saddened to see people he'd served attending the event that condemned his religion.
"I was heartbroken to see that many people at a hotel on a Sunday," he said. "I served them food, I served them drink. I was heartbroken, I wasn't angry."
He got 7 months on house arrest and 3 yrs. probation.

High school assignment had kids simulate Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca
One father was particularly upset when he discovered his daughter had been assigned what he described as an inflammatory pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel article, according to the report. The man was allegedly told by the school's principal that lessons the next year would be even more upsetting to him.
The class assignment, Cities: Connecting the Islamic Word, was published in an excerpt from a book by CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting.
The CAMERA report, Indoctrinating Our Youth: How a U.S. Public School Curriculum Skews the Arab-Israeli Conflict and Islam, is a case study on allegedly biased materials used by Newton Public Schools to teach 9th and 10th graders about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Islamic history and culture. Newton is located about seven miles outside Boston, in a Middlesex County suburb.
Citizens of Newton have been waging a minor war with school officials for years now, trying to get them to use balanced curriculum in their teaching materials on the subject of Islam and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Judicial Watch Senior Investigator Bill Marshall told Fox News.

THEY'VE LOST THEIR DAMN MINDS
Awful: Thad Cochran reportedly disoriented in the Senate
Tragic and disgusting. Tragic for poor Thad Cochran, who should be resting at home and enjoying his days as much as he can now. And disgusting on the part of the Republican leadership and his staff, who are dragging this frail old man around the Capitol for no better reason than that they dont want to have to worry about a Bannon-fueled populist challenge in a Mississippi special election if Cochran were to resign. Theres no chance of his seat going blue, of course; theyre propping him up just to keep that seat filled with someone wholl vote however Trump and McConnell need him to on key legislation like tax reform.
And so a 79-year-old has to go through the motions of chairing the Senate Appropriations Committee, one of the most powerful legislative bodies in the world, when according to Politico he can barely answer reporters questions coherently anymore.
He was unable to answer whether he would remain chairman of the Appropriations Committee, and at one point, needed a staffer to remind him where the Senate chamber is located
On one amendment, Cochran voted yes despite being told by an aide to vote no. The staffer tried to get the senator to switch his vote, but Cochran kept flashing the thumbs up sign, even walking over to the clerk tallying the vote and doing so. GOP floor staffers repeatedly told him the leadership wanted a no vote. Several more moments passed before Cochran realized he was voting the wrong way and then changed his vote.
Appalling. But Mississippi threw a terrible scare into McConnell and Republican leaders three years ago when Cochran barely repelled a primary challenge from tea-party firebrand Chris McDaniel. McDaniel actually narrowly outpolled Cochran in the first round of the primary; Cochran came back to win 51/49 in the runoff, seemingly thanks to crossover votes from black Democrats who wanted to keep the seat out of McDaniels hands.
But wait. The disgrace gets deeper. There was evidence that Thad Cochran was already suffering from disorientation three years ago when he defeated McDaniel. He was, allegedly, reluctant to run that race at all, preferring retirement. But because McDaniel seemed likely to replace him if he did, Beltway Republicans convinced him to the extent that Cochran can be convinced now to show some team spirit and run one more time.
Three years later, if you believe Politico, he cant even find the Senate chamber without help. Hes being exploited for electoral reasons. As a matter of simple decency its time to let him go home to his family.

Democrat Drops Congressional Bid After Shoplifting Arrest at Kohl's
...attempting to steal $1,500 worth of clothes from Kohl's.
Steven Brisee, one of seven Democrats challenging Republican representative John Faso, announced on Twitter that he has had enough of politics, after being arrested twice in September.
The Daily Freeman reported on Brisee's exit from the race, citing his difficulties in fundraising. Brisee raised $850 and spent roughly $18,000, he told the paper.
"As someone on the spectrum the fact Thomas Jefferson was thought to be autistic gave me hope," Brisee tweeted. "There's a reason not many scientists run for office, because it's so far out of our comfort zone. I can do and learn a lot of things but sadly sociability will never be one of them. So that's enough politics for me."
This guy sounds like a nutbag.
Professor Freaks Out About 'Armed Aryan Brotherhood Militia' That Turns Out to Be Cops

But as the news spread on campus and social media, it turned out that the oddly dressed men were actually Florida state troopers sent to keep the peace.
