Cities Launch Legal Defense Fund for Illegal Aliens

Share

From Judicial Watch

A few days after the Chicago City Council approved a $1.3 million legal defense fund to help illegal immigrants facing deportation, officials in Los Angeles unveiled their version with more than seven times the money. It appears to be a growing trend of using public funds to protect those who have violated federal law. The offenders are municipalities that have long offered illegal aliens sanctuary and an array of taxpayer-funded benefits.

Last week Chicago officials proudly announced their legal defense fund to help immigrants threatened with deportation. It was created to prepare for President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise to deport thousands of illegal immigrants. One Chicago alderman admitted he probably has illegal aliens working in his city

Gordon Tomb pays about $40 per month to heat his home in central Pennsylvania. And he wants to keep it that way.

“I’ve lived in Pennsylvania for more than 60 years and have never paid so little for my home heating,” Tomb, a senior fellow with the free market Commonwealth Foundation, said in an interview.

He credits his low heating bills to the boom in natural gas production brought on by hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), which enables energy companies to tap into the

Walker urges Trump to restore power to the states

Share

By / at Watchdog.org

MADISON, Wis. – Gov. Scott Walker is offering President-elect Donald Trump some Tenth Amendment advice on governing.

Walker, whose ambition for the White House was run over early by the Trump train, urges the incoming Republican president to restore state control and ease “incessant federal overreach.”

“The question is not what functions the federal government should give back to the states, but what functions should the federal government have in the first place,” Walker wrote in a letter sent Tuesday to the Republican president-elect.

“The federal government was originally created to be a small, central

The Electoral College Preserves Inclusion

We’re not a democracy, we’re a constitutional republic.

ByArnold Ahlert · at the Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/45930

In yet another demonstration of their “respect” for the nation’s laws and our Constitution, many leftists are calling for the elimination of the Electoral College following the election of Donald Trump. “The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th century idea called the Electoral College,” insists filmmaker Michael Moore. Like so many of his fellow travelers, Moore demonstrates a profound ignorance of a constitutional mechanism the Founding Fathers put in place to limit the power of what millions of Americans just voted against: an all-powerful federal government that has routinely ignored them

FREE SPEECH: Disinvitations reached a record high in 2016.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The number of speakers who faced opposition or disinvitation this year reached a record high according to a report from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

FIRE, which has been tracking the number of incidents involving campus speakers since 2000, found that in 2016, at least 42 separate incidents occurred — double the number that occurred in 2015. That represents a 24 percent increase in the number of incidents compared to 2013, the last record-setting

After a month of counting absentee and provisional ballots, exploring voter fraud, and recounting 90,000+ ballots in one of the progressive strongholds of the state that were turned in at 11:30 p.m. on election night, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory conceded that he lost his re-election on Dec. 5.

McCrory lost his re-election by only 10,277 out of 4.7 million votes, or two-tenths of 1 percent. However, repeal of the H.B. 2 “bathroom bill” is not the lesson
