    ‘The Truth Suffers’: New Project Veritas Video Shows Since-Suspended ABC News Correspondent Alleging Network Has Trump Bias

    February 26, 2020






    Wright added that ABC News fails to “hold [Trump] to account” while simultaneously not giving “him credit for the things he does do.” The correspondent alleged that ABC News is only “interested in three things” in its daily reporting on the president.

    “We’re interested in the outrage of the day, the investigation and of the palace intrigue of who’s backstabbing whom. Beyond that, we don’t really cover the guy,” Wright said, adding that the network has become “a profit” and “promotion center.”

    “And promotion of the company and also promotion of individuals within the company, as opposed to the kind of dedication to the story and a commitment to telling stories that we need to tell that are maybe hard to tell,” he continued.

    Wright considers himself a socialist, a point that he happily noted during the video. ABC News producer Andy Fies also makes an appearance in the Project Veritas video.

    Fies can be seen saying that voters “need to cross the Hudson [River]” to see why people support the president. He adds that ABC News doesn’t “understand voters” and Wright agrees, saying that the network isn’t “terribly interested” in them.

    “It used to be better,” Wright says.

    ABC News did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller.

    Project Veritas, a conservative watchdog group, has exposed numerous networks in the past or tried to. In 2019, the group reported that ABC News allegedly killed a story about accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

    Trump administration launches new unit to strip US citizenship from foreign-born terrorists, criminals

    Adam Shaw 31 mins ago



    The Trump administration is establishing a new section within the Justice Department to deal with the process of removing citizenship from foreign-born individuals who fraudulently obtained citizenship by failing to disclose past convictions for serious crimes -- including terrorism and war crimes.

    The section, which will be within the DOJ’s Office of Immigration Litigation, will be dedicated to denaturalizing those who had failed to disclose they had been involved in criminal activity on their N-400 form for naturalization.


    That form includes questions asking whether an applicant has been involved in genocide and torture among other serious crimes, if they have ever been part of a terrorist or totalitarian organization, if they had been associated with the Nazi government in Germany, and if they have been charged or convicted with a crime or served prison time. Targets for denaturalization are those who have made material breaches of those questions.

    “When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system -- and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals,” Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said. “The new Denaturalization Section will further the Department’s efforts to pursue those who unlawfully obtained citizenship status and ensure that they are held accountable for their fraudulent conduct.”

    The department has seen an increase in such cases both because of an increased effort by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to root out fraud, as well as Operation Janus -- an operation which began during the Obama administration and that identified hundreds of thousands of cases where paper fingerprint data was not entered into the centralized fingerprint database.

    Officials have pointed to recent cases whereby the DOJ has secured the denaturalization of terrorists, war criminals and sex offenders. They include:

    An individual convicted of terrorism in Egypt who admitted recruiting for Al Qaeda in the U.S. He was denaturalized while in Egypt and had his passport taken away from him.
    An individual who was convicted in Bosnia of executing eight unarmed civilians and prisoners of war during the Balkans conflict. He was denaturalized while serving a sentence in Bosnia.

    One individual who engaged in sexual contact with a seven-year-old family member and another who sexually abused a minor for multiple years.

    Such denaturalization proceedings are not targeted at people who commit crimes after they become citizens, only those who have made fraudulent citizenship applications and left out crimes they committed on that form.

    Citizens cannot be deported, but those who have been stripped of citizenship revert back to permanent residency status, which allows deportation or barring of entry in the case of serious criminal offenses.

    Appeals court gives DOJ the OK to punish sanctuary cities
    Ruling says feds can withhold money from states, cities that don't work with DHS

    Wednesday, February 26, 2020





    A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that the Justice Department does have power under the law to withhold federal grant money from communities that refuse to share information with ICE, giving President Trump a major victory in the escalating battle with sanctuary cities.

    The decision by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stands in contrast to rulings by a number of other courts, and could make the sanctuary issue ripe for a Supreme Court challenge.

    Judge Reena Raggi, a Bush appointee to the 2nd Circuit, said jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate are flouting federal law, and yet were begging for federal money.


    “There is something disquieting in the idea of states and localities seeking federal funds to enforce their own laws while themselves hampering the enforcement of federal laws, or worse, violating those laws,” she wrote in the opinion for the three-judge panel.

    She pointed out that the Trump administration’s stance is not new, and that the Obama administration began to take similar steps at the end of its tenure.

    The ruling clears the way for the government to withhold Byrne Justice Assistance Grant money from some of the plaintiffs — New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington, Massachusetts and Virginia — though not all of them.

    That’s because some of them are covered under some of those other conflicting appeals court rulings.

    The Justice Department still claimed victory.

    “Today’s decision rightfully recognizes the lawful authority of the Attorney General to ensure that Department of Justice grant recipients are not at the same time thwarting federal law enforcement priorities,” the department said in a statement.


    The fight is over what’s known as Section 1373, written by Congress in 1996, which says localities applying for certain pots of money from the Justice Department may not block their employees from sharing information with Homeland Security “regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.”

    The Trump administration issued guidance saying that to comply with that, localities needed to certify that they were in compliance with the law, that they would honor information requests from Homeland Security, and that they would allow immigration authorities access to their prisons and jails.

    Sanctuary states and cities objected, saying the administration cut too many corners in announcing the new policy, and went beyond the terms of the law. They also argued Section 1373 itself was unconstitutional because it violated states’ sovereignty.


    Other courts agreed, but the 2nd Circuit rejected each of those arguments.

    Other courts have backed those claims in other cases, and a district court did in this case.

    But the 2nd Circuit rejected each of those arguments.

    Judge Raggi said it makes sense for the government to condition grant money, which pays to prosecute and incarcerate people, on cooperation with Homeland Security, since some of those people are going to be deportable.

    She said but for the state’s incarceration, Homeland Security would be able to carry out its own duty to deport them.

    “In such circumstances, coordination between the State and DHS is not only appropriate, but necessary, to allow the federal agency effectively to resume its obligations when the State has achieved its penal ones,” she wrote.

    She was joined in her ruling by Judge Jose A. Cabranes, a Clinton appointee, and Judge Ralph K. Winter, a Reagan appointee.

    Trump is overwelmed on this virus issue.

    The body language and tone of voice reveals it.

    On the other hand, this would become an issue no matter who the President is.

    I’m worried as shit about this myself, and so I couldn’t blame him being concerned and feeling a bit overwelmed.

    Not to mention the Dems making a political issue out of this.

    Actually surprised he isn't running with it as a reason to close borders, ban travel to certain countries, etc.

    I'm more concerned with the prospect of economic chaos than I am of the actual virus.

    What a brilliant idea to ship our ability to make things to a third world country where they eat unsanitary animals and live in squalor that is a perfect breeding ground for this kind of thing.

    Like many things, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Yep, if this drags on through most of the year, you're going to see the big tech and auto companies crater. Apple especially is already warning investors there's going to be major shortages of their products just form the impact up to now.

    Here is skeletor on TV crying about the response.

    Can she please have a stroke and keel over? The sooner the better.

    Although, she’d just be replaced by someone that is more insufferable than herself.

    I think we’ve reached the point to where everything is going to be political.

    None of these people give a damn who lives and who dies. It’s all about “How can we use this situation to our political advange?”.

    Correction is 10% recession is 20% or more drop. We are overdue. Fed can't help on this one if it's prolonged.

    20% or more is considered a crash. We're overdue for a correction but this isn't a normal market cycle
