      Who does this author think he’s kidding – this bill won’t lower crime. If the threat of mandatory life sentences for some drug crimes didn’t deter the traffickers there is no way lowering those sentences will deter them. I’m with Sen. Tom Cotton on this one, if anything we don’t have enough people in prison.

      I think you need to have a rule that judges can not hold stock or interests in private prisons. It is a conflict of interest. They are the ones that put people there.

        What baffles my mind is that we know Stalin didn’t care about the famine, it was being used by Stalin to kill people and make way for the Soviets to take over the farms. He had to reluctantly allow Hoover to bring in massive aid from the US, because word of the famine for our and he couldn’t pretend not to care once the world was watching. He did little to nothing to help his own people, while Hoover managed nothing short of a miracle to feed millions of people. But the response came too late to save everyone, because Stalin suppressed the news of what was actually happening for as long possible.

          Until 1989 the USA suppressed the info also. The whole world did. In 1989…. Ukrainian President was first allowed to say, “we have a story to tell.” He was of course speaking of the Holomodor which lasted 14 months, Stalin choked the entry and exit points to the Ukraine because he hated their refuseniks. 11 million dead in less than two years.

          Still not in one USA history book because when it ended…. FDR sponsored Stalin into the League of Nations.

          Best Stalin program ever…. back before History Channel began teaching us about Ancient Aliens….

          HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE WATCH THIS. THEY CALL STALIN AN ORGANIZER…. ALSO HE CHANGED HIS NAME. Hmmmm.

            Herbert Hoover was a huge part of the relief effort, which is why it made sense to for us political opponents in the press to downplay the whole thing. Also, the communists at the NYT had been singing Stalin’s praises, it’s not surprising they didn’t want to publicize his genocide.

            Of all the people our leftist media have smeared over the last 100 years, Herbert Hoover may have had it the worst when you take a look at what a heroic and patriotic man he truly was.

    Antifa is in response to President Donald J. Trump winning in Nov 2016.

    Today the Patriot Prayer group will get Portland Police protection because of this letter threatening the Commie Mayor Wheeler with a lawsuit:

    “The union that represents employees of Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday called on Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to immediately provide law enforcement services to ICE employees.

    Attorney Sean Riddell, legal representative for the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, sent a letter to the mayor’s office Monday requesting a meeting with Wheeler to discuss the hands-off approach Portland police took to the OccupyICEPDX protest.

    Demonstrators held a 38-day-long occupation at the facility beginning June 17 in protest to President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

    Riddell wrote in the letter that Wheeler’s decision created “a zone of terror and lawlessness” and resulted in threats of physical violence and harassment toward ICE employees.

    The letter, first reported by Willamette Week, was sent by email to Wheeler’s chief of staff around 7:30 a.m. Monday, said the union would like to avoid federal litigation, but is “prepared to protect our membership and their families.”

        Yes, the Patriot Prayer group has dubious origins. But it’s America, fake groups are allowed to assemble and spew their nonsense.

        What Antifa does is illegal, showing up at lawful assemblies and threatening and assaulting law abiding citizens.

        So let’s not conflate the two, because that’s exactly what the left wants. Antifa is very real, even if it’s full of useful idiots and run by political operatives. It really does hurt people, and it really is a criminal organization. We can focus on that without having to address their victims at all.

    Met two new people this weekend, both deplorables who support President Trump 100%. I was surprised they were as well informed as treepers are because no way are they participants in CTH so that’s not where they are getting their information.

    One was a legal immigrant from Chile; the other was a 37 year old blue collar worker. Thank goodness there are other ways to stay informed without being influenced by the msm. I was pleased and happy and thought I should share with all of you.

The children born to those in that community are divided. A few do support the use of firearms for self-defense and the 2A while most adhere to the traditional beliefs of their parents. Those beliefs mirror a cultural belief that only the state shall own firearms and individuals who use firearms are troublemakers to be shunned.

He uses some of our favorite election night clips at the beginning of the movie, which is delightful. And there are three pieces of music that are worth the ticket price all by themselves: his wife, Debbie, singing a song about America, the Battle Hymn of the Republic sung by a black choir in a stunning church, and the music that plays at the end as the credits roll, including the National Anthem.

    I was just looking at the FBI document that was released last week. It’s the application that was made in order to pay Christopher Steele for his work as a “Confidential Human Source.” It’s at least 95% redacted, but an interesting tidbit slipped through; it says that the day Steele was first inducted and admonished (given his rules and regulations) was February 2, 2016. That’s right February 2016–more than six months before the FBI investigation officially started. I don’t understand why I haven’t seen any stories on this. It seems pretty darn significant.

    China agriculture ministry issues African swine fever outbreak alert
    China is suspending transportation of hogs from Shenyang to outside the city following the outbreak, the ministry said in a statement published on its website.

    Suspected African swine fever outbreak was discovered on Wednesday in a pig farm with 383 pig herds in Shenbei New district in Shenyang city, capital of Liaoning province. The case was confirmed on Friday.

    The outbreak affected and killed 47 pigs on the farm. Local government culled near 1,000 hogs following the outbreak.
    The ministry banned pig farmers from transporting hogs from the outbreak area and feeding the animals with untreated food waste. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-swineflu-pigs-government/china-agriculture-ministry-issues-african-swine-fever-outbreak-alert-idUSKBN1KO165
