US Attorney paralegal helped gangbanger son go after ‘snitches’: feds
[NYPOST] A paralegal in the New Jersey US Attorney’s Office was busted for allegedly using her work equipment to help her gangbanger son and his Bronx crew expose members "snitching," prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Tawanna Hilliard ‐ whose son Tyquan is part of the ruthless 5-9 Brims set of the Bloods street gang ‐ in 2016 used her work computer to help a crew member find possible turncoats, as well as to obtain the personal information of a rival member she thought was "trying to jam my son up," documents filed in Brooklyn federal court allege.

The Department of Justice employee also allegedly meddled in a pending robbery case against her son in 2018.

Prosecutors say the Brooklyn resident posted a video on YouTube of one of her son’s alleged accomplices speaking to law enforcement in an effort to prove he was "snitching" to authorities.

The clip ‐ which she had obtained as discovery material in Tyquan’s case ‐ was titled "NYC Brim Gang Member Snitching Pt. 1."

After the video was posted, the co-conspirator, identified only as John Doe, began receiving death threats from other inmates while he was in jail, the documents say.

When Sherlocks searched Hilliard’s Flatbush home in September 2018, they found the video interviews with him and another accomplice on her computer.

They also found text messages where Hilliard lamented that her son "has no line of defense because his co-d told everything."

After the clips were posted, she allegedly texted multiple people that "there’s more [videos]" and that what was posted was just "the tip of the iceberg."

In another message she said John Doe was "giving up murders, victims, shooters and all ... SMH."

Her son was behind bars when the videos were posted, but he allegedly sent letters to various people ‐ including the FBI and a senior Assistant US Attorney in the Eastern District of New York ‐ threatening to upload more clips of John Doe’s statement.

Baltimore teachers call for donated fans, district resists
[APNEWS] Baltimore’s teacher union is calling for fans to be donated to schools as sweltering heat pushes classroom temperatures into the hundreds, but the district says electrical infrastructure may not be equipped to handle it.

The Baltimore Sun reports the union hopes to hand out 500 fans in response to a lack of functional air-conditioning in city schools, some of which have none at all.

But Baltimore Schools Chief Operations Officer Lynette Washington is warning against it, saying the buildings don’t have the electrical load to withstand it.

The union is pushing back. President Diamonté Brown is quoted by the paper as responding: "If you’re so concerned about the electricity being overloaded, then fix it."

The paper reports the district has an almost $3 billion maintenance backlog from decades of underfunding.

Parents--black and white--would rather have their kids live with relatives in a neighboring county and attend school there and in Baltimore City. There are even accounts of teachers having to provide basic school supplies. And yet again, I laugh at the b.s. about how the state lottery proceeds go, in part, to the schools. But I wouldn't doubt that there is graft and corruption in the school system as well. Gov. Hogan, what say ye?

Judge rejects FBI plea to keep Comey memos redacted
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] A federal judge ruled against the FBI’s efforts to keep some redacted documents related to former FBI Director JamesThe spine of the FBI is the rule of law Comey
The disgraced, except in his own mind, former head of the FBI...
’s memos hidden from the public.

The ruling comes after the FBI asked Judge James Boasberg to reconsider a district court ruling earlier this year that CNN and other media organizations and watchdog groups were entitled to information related both to Comey's memos and to how those memos were used in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation, which concluded earlier this year. But the FBI battled against disclosure.

The bureau was claiming it had "effectively asserted" a Freedom of Information Act exemption as the basis to protect its redactions. But the judge said the FBI never actually made this assertion in the relevant filings. Nevertheless, the FBI wanted the judge to act like it had and to rule accordingly in its favor to stop more information from being released. The FBI also argued that, even though it invoked the National Security Act, it had actually meant to invoke the Freedom of Information Act instead.

The judge denied these requests Monday, calling the arguments a bridge too far and pointing out the FBI never made the arguments it now wanted him to consider.

Media and watchdog groups have fought to obtain documents relating to Comey's notes through federal open records laws since May 2017, when the existence of Comey's memos was first made public. Those memos recount hotly disputed conversations between Comey and Trump that are hotly disputed.

Two Illegal Immigrants Arrested for Repeatedly Raping 11-Year-Old Girl
[AMGREATNESS] Two illegal immigrants colonists residing in the Washington D.C. suburb and sanctuary county of Montgomery County, Maryland are accused of repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl. Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, of Damascus, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, of Gaithersburg, were arrested and each charged with second-degree rape. The two men knew the girl through a friendship with her older brother.
Oh? And was big bro ok with all this?
The child reported the rapes to a social worker at her school.

In September 2018, the victim was introduced to her older brother’s friend, Palacios-Amaya. Over the course of the next few months, the then 27-year-old man raped the middle schooler on multiple occasions, authorities allege. The victim recalled one instance where Palacios-Amaya "used his cell phone to video record the two of them having sex," police noted in court documents.

The victim told the social worker that Palacios-Amaya would often pressure her not to attend school so that she could stay home while her parents were at work. That gave Palacios-Amaya unsupervised access to the girl.

Investigators say while reviewing the victim’s cell phone, they located numerous photographs of Palacios-Amaya with the girl.

The other suspect, Barrera-Navidad, reportedly attended the victim’s older brother’s birthday party on July 2018. The celebration took place at a mobile home park in Germantown.

At one point in the evening, Barrera-Navidad and the 11-year-old victim entered a bedroom. According to police, Barrera-Navidad raped the girl and then continued to communicate with her via cell phone for an undisclosed period of time thereafter.

Barrera-Navidad was born in El Salvador while less information is known about the other alleged rapist, Palacios-Amaya. ICE reports that a "final order of removal" was issued for Barrera-Navidad back in December of 2016. In 2014, authorities removed Palacios-Amaya from the U.S. but he returned at a later date.

Yesterday, WMAL’s Larry O’Connor interviewed Kevin Lewis, a news hound form WJLA, who broke this story. Lewis tells O’Connor that Montgomery County has a "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy on immigration status and that County Executive Marc Elrich issued an executive order prohibiting any county employee from inquiring into the immigration status of any resident. Lewis also said that jail officials are not only forbidden from calling ICE officials regarding illegal alien inmates but also that ICE is forbidden from even entering the jail. There is no way of knowing whether these two monsters could have been removed from the U.S. before they raped this little girl.

Senate Democrats ask Trump to shift wall money to gun measures
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two senior Senate Democrats on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to withdraw his $5 billion request for border wall funding and use the money on initiatives to combat gun violence in the aftermath of back-to-back mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

In a letter, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Patrick Leahy informed Trump that he does not have enough support in Congress for his wall funding request to be included in the federal budget for fiscal year 2020, which begins on Oct. 1.

"Instead, we urge you to support spending funds you have requested for the border wall, on other pressing needs such as proven initiatives that will address the threats of gun violence and white supremacist extremism in America," wrote Schumer and Leahy, who is the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee that oversees government outlays.

The White House had no immediate comment.

#5  Much of the human and narcotics trafficking come in from Mexico. Tighten up the border, build a strong wall and crime in the U.S. ought to decline as well as the number of crime-related shootouts. Firearms are often used in violent crimes, for example, the recent shootout between police and the drug dealer in Philadelphia. Build the wall. Stem the flow of drugs into the country.

MN AG Keith Ellison hiring attorneys on active payroll of leftist NGO
[StarTribune] Attorney General Keith Ellison
(formerly Representative Ellison D-MN, aka, Keith Mohammud, Keith X Muhammud, apologist for CAIR)
is being sued by a group with ties to the fossil fuel industry
(that's the StarTrib way of imputing evil)
in a case related to Ellison's office hiring an environmental lawyer paid for by a nonprofit group backed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg, a major donor to Democratic candidates around the country and a strong advocate for gun control and reversing climate change, established the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center in 2017. It is housed at NYU School of Law to "support state attorneys general in defending and promoting clean energy, climate and environmental laws and policies," according to its website.

Doug Seaton, a local lawyer for conservative causes who is representing Energy Policy Advocates in the case, likened Ellison hiring a lawyer with Bloomberg's money to the Department of Human Services installing an insurance executive in its management suite.

"Attorney General Ellison knows Minnesotans would be appalled if they found out a billionaire with a political agenda was able to purchase the AG's office by hiring and paying its lawyers," Seaton said.
some Minnesotans, who believe in good government would be appalled, others who believe in dictatorship of the left would applaud

Gillibrand: ‘Reality of America Today’ Is It Is Not Safe to Go Shopping at a Walmart
[BREITBART] Wednesday on MSNBC’s "Live," 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
...Machine non-entity selected to become the successor to Hillary Clinton as Senatrix-for-Life from Noo Yawk. She is running for the Dem presidential nomination in 2020. She has no observable principles, will apparently say anything to anyone, and seemingly lacks any personality of her own....
(D-NY) said until gun control is passed ib light of recent mass shootings "the reality of America today," is "it’s not safe to go back-to-school shopping at a Walmart."

Gillibrand said, "We can do things to protect Americans. We shouldn’t be able to live in a world where it’s not safe to go back-to-school shopping at a Walmart or where it’s not safe to go to a concert. That’s the reality of America today. We need to fight against gun violence in all its forms, and we need to come together as leaders to get things done now."
