Returning to the scene of the crime, Election Criminal Trump Repeats Idiotic Voter Fraud Claims in O’Reilly Interview

Thieves Cry the Loudest. "There is an old Sufi saying that if there has been a robbery and somebody has stolen something and people start crying for the thief, if the thief is there also, he cries the loudest: Where is the thief? Who has stolen this? This is bad, immoral! Catch hold of him, run and find him! He cries the loudest, that is his protection, because how could you think that a man who has been stealing, or who has just stolen something right now, could be so against the thief? But always remember that whenever a man is crying very loudly, catch him immediately, he is the thief. Whenever a man justifies, shows his guilt, he knows that he needs justification." [OSHO] Trump speaks on "the fraud" at 4:23.

From [Politico] President Trump in a new interview seemingly defends his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election, maintaining that illegal [non-white] immigrants and "dead people" around the U.S. were registered to vote.

"Well, many people have come out and said I am right, you know that," Trump told Fox News's Bill O’Reilly in an interview slated to air Sunday.

When O’Reilly notes that Trump needs data to back up his claim that three million illegal immigrants voted in the election, Trump insisted "a bad situation" exists regarding voter fraud.

"Let me just tell you – when you see illegals, people that are not citizens and they are on registration rolls ... look, Bill, we can be babies, but you take a look at the registration, you have illegals, you have dead people, you have this, it's really a bad situation. It's really bad." [MORE]

White GOP Votary Too Small. From [HERE] and [HERE] Electionologist and investigative journalist Greg Palast, explains 'that the GOP's Trump white votary was not large enough to elect Donald Trump. That is, there were not enough white republican voters to carry a victory for Trump unless the GOP was able to systematically wipe out voter registrations of voters of color.

In 2016 GOP built and put into action a voter erasing system called Interstate Crosscheck. Crosscheck along with thousands of votes intentionally not counted in Black voting areas, such as Flint & Detroit chose the president and determined who controls Congress.' [MORE]

Palast's undisputed findings reveal that millions of Black, Latino & Asian voters were removed from voter rolls in swing states by Interstate Crosscheck, a so-called "voter fraud" program created by the GOP. Thirty (30) states participate in Interstate Crosscheck. Palast calls Crosscheck the "Great White Hope Machine."  

Interstate Crosscheck removed voters from the voter list if a voter's name appeared to be registered in more than one state. Around 7 million names were put on the list of “potential double voters” before the 2014 election. Crosscheck then compares each state’s list with lists from other states in the program. Specifically, according to Palast, the Crosscheck list contains 7,264,422 voters.

Although the Crosscheck program aims to prevent individuals from voting in more than one state in the same election, Crosscheck has been doing the exact opposite and is used to remove legitmate voters from voting rolls. Greg Palast has claimed that before a single vote was even cast, the election was already fixed by Trump operatives who eliminated millions of legitimate African American, Latino and Asian voters from the voter rolls in North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Greg Palast has claimed that before a single vote was even cast, the election was already fixed by Trump operatives who eliminated millions of legitimate African American, Latino and Asian voters from the voter rolls in North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Now take a look at a couple of "double voters" on this Crosscheck list: 

This is typical of the Crosscheck "suspects." Above it says that James Elmer Barnes Jr. of the state of Georgia supposedly voted a second time in Virginia as James CROSS Barnes III.

In other words, the only evidence that these two names represent one criminal voting twice is that the first and last names match. That's all. Nothing more.

Look at the second "double voter": James Ratcliffe Barnes Jr. of Georgia is accused of voting a second time in the state of Virginia—even though the second voter has a different middle name (Anthony) and has no suffix added to his name.

While state government officials could not locate Mr. Barnes, the alleged double-voting criminal to arrest him, Palast had no trouble locating him. Mr. James Elmer Barnes Jr. told said he had never used the middle name "Cross," never been "III" (the "Third"), and never been to the state of Virginia, let alone voted there.

Georgia and Virginia officials wouldn't explain why these clearly different Mr. Barnes were still on the suspect list. Indeed, the Republican officials wouldn't talk to Palast at all.

Neither state arrested a Mr. Barnes for voting twice (that is, they did not arrest James Elmer Barnes Jr. nor James Cross Barnes, who are in fact two very different people). Rather, both states prepared to remove them from the voter rolls. Both Messrs. Barnes are about to lose their right to vote, that is, be removed from voter rolls.

How odd. If you rob a bank and get caught, the police don't close your bank account. They arrest you and send you to prison. Here, Mr. Barnes is accused of a crime punished the same as robbery, yet he is not arrested.

And that's because Mr. Barnes is innocent—both Mr. Barneses are innocent. Clearly. But, without a trial— indeed, without their even knowing it—both men could lose their right to vote.

Now, take a look at the longer list of suspects above. Everyone is named James Brown. That is, for example, James S. Brown is supposed to be the same voter as James Howe Brown Jr.

What is the evidence? Only that each voter has the first name "James" and the surname "Brown." Like the late soul singer.

According to Palast there are 27,456 people in the USA named James Brown. According to Crosscheck, they must be a criminally minded family. According to Crosscheck, thousands of people named James Brown are vorting twice. [MORE]

The inherent racial bias in the Crosscheck database results in an astonishing one in six Hispanics, one in seven Asian-Americans and one in nine African-Americans landing on what Palast dubs “Trump’s hit list.” His investigators calculated 1.1 million non-white people, many spread over crucial swing states were deprived of their right to vote on election day.

Federal appeals court declines to reinstate unlawful immigration order

From [HERE] The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit [official website] on Saturday denied [order, PDF] the Trump administration's motion to reinstate immigration restrictions until the case could be heard by the court. The emergency motion [text, PDF] to reinstate the immigration restrictions was filed by the Trump administration on Friday, arguing that only the president can decide who can enter the US and that the district court had "overreached" by second guessing the president's decision in a matter of national security. Saturday's ruling means that the restrictions will be suspended until arguments have been heard by the court. The court gave the two states challenging the executive order, Minnesota and Washington, and the Trump administration utnil Monday to file further briefs. The restraining order [text, PDF] was granted by a judge for the US District Court for the Western District of Washington [official website] on Friday following a hearing [video].

Trump signed the executive order [JURIST op-ed] in late January. Only a day later, a judge for the Eastern District of New York issued an emergency stay [JURIST report], temporarily preventing execution of the law, until the question of whether it applied to valid visa holders could be resolved. That issue was resolved by a district judge in Michigan, who ordered [JURIST report] that the travel ban could not be applied to legal citizens, including those holding visas.

Lawsuit Says Ft Worth Cops Lied About the Murder of Kelvin Goldston. Eyewitness Saw White Cops Gun Down Black Man Execution Style

From [HERE] The family of a Black man fatally shot by a Fort Worth police officer in 2015 filed a wrongful-death lawsuit in federal court Thursday asserting that the officer fired his weapon without provocation.

Kelvin Goldston, 30, was at a residence under surveillance for drug activity on May 11, 2015, police have said. As he left the house in the 6000 block of Wheaton Drive, his pickup was bracketed in the front and back by two officers driving separate vehicles.

Police have said the two officers — one uniformed and the other in plainclothes — got out of their vehicles and approached the pickup. As they approached they claim Goldston put the truck in reverse and accelerated backward, officials say.

The truck struck the plainclothes officer, a 23-year veteran of the department, as she tried to dive out of its path, causing her minor injuries, officials said.

“The uniformed officer observed the truck accelerating towards the narcotics officer and fired shots in an effort to stop the suspect from running over the narcotics officer,” Sgt. Steve Enright said in a new release the day of the shooting. [MORE]

Goldston was struck multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene from what the medical examiner would later rule was a gunshot in the neck.

The lawsuit tells a different story than the one offered by police.

It cites a woman who said she was an eyewitness as saying that the plainclothes officer, a female, never left her vehicle until after the shooting. The uniformed officer used his gun to break the truck’s glass and fired multiple times, at one point reaching into the pickup, the lawsuit states.

“Kelvin was not observed trying to harm anyone nor did he try to drive away as reported and as the evidence supports,” the lawsuit states. “Goldston was sitting in the truck when he was gunned down, execution style.”

White prosecutors declied to indict and a grand jury declined to indict the officer, whose identity has been kept secret by police. Apparently, white prosecutors did not present the grand jury with testimony from the only indendent eyewitness to the incident.

Daryl Washington, an attorney representing the Goldston family, said “The police officer broke the window and then shot Kelvin Goldston.” “You have an eyewitness who was interviewed after this happened. What that person saw happen, none of that testimony was taken into account at all. That in itself was enough to raise probable cause. If you have conflicting testimony from witnesses, it’s not the grand jury’s job to decide credibility; that’s a job for a trial jury.

“The evidence pointed toward this police officer being indicted.” [MORE]

Lawsuit says Without Probable Cause White Homewood Cops Searched, Attacked & Unnecessarily Detained Black Woman in Walmart

From [HERE] A black woman who was taken to the floor and handcuffed inside the Walmart in Homewood by police after she refused to let them search her purse has filed a federal civil rights and excessive force lawsuit.

The incident sparked protests.

Attorneys for Brenda Rivers filed the lawsuit late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Birmingham. The lawsuit names Homewood's police department and officer Corey Lenard as defendants.

Homewood City Attorney Michael Kendrick said the city had not received the lawsuit yet so he could not comment. A spokesman for the police department also said they had not yet received a copy of the lawsuit.

Rivers was inside the Walmart Supercenter on Lakeshore Parkway in Homewood on Dec. 1 when police were in pursuit of a suspect in Walmart who stole the wallet of a customer while in the store, the lawsuit states. Rivers alleges that while she was in Walmart, she was approached by police who asked to search her purse. She refused and was arrested for "failure to comply."

Rivers then alleges that one officer, identified in the lawsuit as Lenard, "slammed" her to the ground "or otherwise made physical contact with her."

After Rivers was approached by the law enforcement officers to search her purse, Rivers indicated to the defendants she had just entered the store, the lawsuit claims. "After Rivers was arrested and slammed to the ground, the shopper who had her wallet stolen identified that Rivers was not the person who stole the wallet. The Defendants continued to keep Rivers in handcuffs on the floor under arrest," the lawsuit states.

"Defendant Lenard's actions have deprived Rivers of her Constitutional and civil rights," the lawsuit states. "Specifically, Defendant Lenard violated the Plaintiff's Fourth Amendment rights against an unreasonable search and seizure as there existed no valid and supportable probable cause or reasonable suspicion that the Plaintiff had committed a crime."

The lawsuit also claims Lenard violated River's Fourth Amendment rights by using excessive force and her Fifth Amendment right of due process.

Rivers suffered physical injuries, pain, mental anguish and emotional distress, the lawsuit states. Rivers was caused to seek medical treatment, and was prevented from going about her normal activities due to her injuries, the lawsuit claims.

Rivers was "unlawfully searched, detained and falsely imprisoned" and caused to incur medical expenses.

The officer, who Homewood police have declined to identify, was found not to have violated any state law or departmental policy.

But after the incident Homewood police announced the officer involved in the incident had been reassigned to the department's training division. The move came after police officials met with Black Lives Matter activists.

Pulled Over for No Reason & Then Attacked by White Minneapolis Cops: Black Woman Files Lawsuit

From [HERE] and [HERE] A Black woman is suing Minneapolis and its police department after she was allegedly assaulted by white Minneapolis police officers last summer.

Lenell McKenzie claims she was punched in the face, choked and slammed to the ground last July.

According to the criminal complaint, Minneapolis police officers David Robins and Charles Cape followed a car. The driver eventually pulled over and Robins approached the car. McKenzie was inside the car when a conversation began between her and Robins. She eventually gave Robins her license.

Nervous as to why she's been stopped, McKenzie called 911.

"I'm on 39th and Bloomington. I have two officers who illegally pulled me over and are running my plates right now," she told the dispatcher.

When Officer Robins returned, he asked McKenzie to get out of her car. She does get out, but this is when her lawyer said things went awry.

"Then they grabbed her, they threw her against the squad car, they threw her on the ground against the pavement, they punched her in the face, they choked her," Attorney Zorislav Leyderman said.

Leyderman said McKenzie's phone was recording the entire time; screams can be heard on the call.

McKenzie was eventually put in the back of the squad car. The officers then transported her to the Hennepin County Jail and charged her with obstruction of the legal process.

"The officers are claiming that they had the right to do what they did. that the stop was legal, the forces was legal," Leyderman said.

Since the incident, McKenzie said she's been unable to work.

Right now, attorneys for both parties are waiting for a court date for the trial.

"We have just removed the case to federal court, are gathering all relevant evidence and will be defending against this lawsuit," City Attorney Susan Segal said in a statement.

Black Women Substantially Impacted If Obamacare Is Repealed

From [HERE] Black women stand to lose the most if the Affordable Care Act is repealed. This demographic is more susceptible to diabetes, uterine fibroids, obesity, high-blood pressure, domestic abuse and sexual assault than any other. Many black women also have children who depend on them for their health care, since black women are more likely to be sole providers for their household

Obamacare reduced coverage disparities for a number of black women, allowing them to access routine health care treatment and check-ups with a primary care physician. The preventive care clause in the ACA has been life-changing for many black women: It gives them better access to early cancer screenings. Black women are twice as likely as white women to die of cervical cancer and twice as likely to be diagnosed in the later stages of breast cancer.

Historically, the government has paid attention to black women’s health only when it’s convenient, said Joan Faber McAlister, an associate professor at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

“Black women’s health has been pretty much the lowest priority, almost has been completely invisible,” McAlister said. “The only time we see a lot of attention to black women’s health is when it’s being misrepresented to undermine social programs that don’t even primarily benefit black women.”

As of Jan. 1, 32 states had expanded Medicaid to include most low-income Americans. If President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans move forward with their plans to repeal Obamacare, that coverage will go away. So will the tax credits that help lower- and middle-class families afford insurance. Many of the people hit hardest will be black women. [MORE]

White Cop to Black Man: "I Will Create Something. You'll Go To Jail" [Lies come w/a false report, lying to prosecutors & lying in court]

Cops are masterful liars and they lie all day, everyday to Black People. An experienced defense attorney will explain that most police officers will lie under oath in order to protect the fruits of legally questionable arrests or searches or even to uphold a minor traffic ticket. To these officers, a “white” lie to prevent an “injustice”—the judge suppressing the evidence because of his interpretation of some vague constitutional precept—is morally acceptable. And a psychopathic racist cop has no morality where race is a variable. His lie includes fabricating the police report, lying to the prosecutor, lying to the grand jury, and lying to the trial jury. The lies sit easily upon a racist officer because to them there is no innocent Black male, just Black male criminals who have not yet been detected, apprehended or convicted. [MORE] Defense counsel’s cross-examination is part of the game. The officers are not so much lying, they reason, as matching wits against an adversary. [MORE]

From [HERE] Duncan Hicks, a black man,  went to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s station last month to file a report but was met with obstinate bureaucracy and eventually threats.

Hicks was attempting to file a report with the department and had done so on multiple occasions without incident. Hicks told CBS Los Angeles this was his third time there and he also called once to file a few custody disputes with his child’s mother. But this time, he says, the white deputy refused to write his report down and then took it a step further.

Hicks was politely trying to explain to the deputy that his report was not stating the problem when the cop lost it.

“This is not explaining the incident, sir,” said Hicks.

“K, Duncan. You know what man? I’m about getting tired of you and you’re about to go to jail just so you know,” barks the deputy, threatening an entirely innocent man.

“What am I going to jail for?” asked Hicks. 

Remaining vigilant and unafraid, Hicks stood his ground as he knew the cop had no basis to make such threats.

“You can’t say that. How are you gonna create something? That’s against the law,” Hicks said.

Apparently then the deputy then notices Hicks filming him. “Recording me like that. That’s illegal without my knowledge. You want to go to jail for that too?”

According to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, however, audio and video recording in the station is allowed.

Hicks then fires back noting that he is only filming because an armed man is threatening to kidnap and cage him for no reason. “You have a gun on your hip. I’m doing this for my protection,” he says.

“Uh, uh, you’re not starting that in my lobby,” says the clerk before the video ends.

As CBS Los Angeles reports, Sheriff John McMahon, released a statement that read in part: “Since viewing the video, our employees’ response to the citizen is not consistent with my expectation of customer service. Additionally, the deputy’s responses are not consistent with the interpretation of the law…”

Hicks told the local news that “If that’s his way of protecting and doing his job I would like him to be fired,” and he is right. However, as of Thursday, the officer in the video is still employed.

Imagine for a moment that you made threats to kidnap and cage [a white] person for the sole purpose of being aggravated with them. Imagine that you made these threats while on the job, at your place of work, and the person you threatened — was a customer. Do you think that for one second you would be able to keep that job — not too mention avoid jail for those threats?

However [in a system of injustice], if you are a police officer, you can do so with impunity.

More Lies Told by Your Government: U.S. military touted 10-year-old videos from Yemen terror raid

From [HERE] The video clips that the U.S. military said were evidence of the success of last week’s raid on an Al Qaeda compound in Yemen have one major problem, the Pentagon acknowledged Friday: They have been on the internet for a decade.

The U.S. Central Command, which posted the video clips, pulled them from the Pentagon’s video website after it was discovered they had been posted in 2007 and were still online on the SITE Intelligence Group website.

The videos and the accompanying CENTCOM statement — which stated the clips were “a small sample of the sort of intelligence information that was obtained in the site exploitation mission” — were the latest effort from the Trump administration to defend the raid on Al Qaeda's Yemen offshoot in which one Navy SEAL was killed and civilian casualties were reported.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer went through a detailed explanation of the approval process for the raid on Thursday, emphasizing that the Obama administration had signed off on the mission before President Donald Trump ultimately gave it the green light.

Trump to focus counter-extremism efforts solely on Islam - White extremists to be eliminated from domestic terror program

From [HEREOnline neo-Nazi and white supremacist forums have been unmistakably jubilant lately, as web chatter moved from celebrating President Donald Trump’s electoral victory to celebrating individual cabinet appointments and policy proposals.

On Thursday, internet racists celebrated another perceived victory: Reports that President Trump will soon remove white nationalist groups from a federal effort to study and neutralize extremist radicalization, and rebrand the program to focus solely on groups associating themselves with Islam.

Reuters reports today that the new administration will revamp the “Countering Violent Extremism” program to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States. It cites unnamed sources.

The Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) program partners government agencies with community organizations in hopes of preventing people from being radicalized into various types of terror and hate groups. Its primary focus has always been in Muslim communities, but the Obama administration designed it to also encompass the American far-right groups that propagandize to people like Dylann Roof.

News of Trump’s plan to reverse that symbolic recognition of right-wing threats prompted a wave of celebration in white nationalist circles.

“Donald Trump wants to remove us from undue federal scrutiny by removing ‘white supremacists’ from the definition of ‘extremism,’” the founder and editor of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer (which takes its name from a Nazi propaganda publication) wrote in a post on the site. “Yes, this is real life. Our memes are all real life. Donald Trump is setting us free.”

This interpretation overstates the scope of Reuter’s report somewhat. The meme-filled Daily Stormer post alleges that changing the CVE program and renaming it to focus solely on “Islamic extremism,” as Trump puts it, would also extend to to calling off FBI scrutiny and taking white supremacists and neo-Nazis off of extremist databases. That would actually require separate action from Trump.

But in Trump’s move to take even some measure of scrutiny off of far-right extremism, The Daily Stormer sees a direct parroting of their own writing and a reward for the far-right’s role in getting Trump elected.

“It’s fair to say that if the Trump team is not listening to us directly (I assume they are), they are thinking along very similar lines. We helped get Trump get [sic] elected, and the fact of the matter is, without Alt-Right meme magick, it simply wouldn’t have happened,” the post continues. “This is absolutely a signal of favor to us.”

Another neo-Nazi site that associates itself with the so-called “alt-right,” Infostormer, celebrated the news and took it as a sign of support. “We may truly have underestimated President Trump’s covert support of our Cause (at least in some form), but after this proposal, I am fully ready to offer myself in service of this glorious regime” the post reads.

Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Described a Barbaric Execution of a Black Man as an 'Innocent Misadventure' [legalized murder]

From [HERE] and [HERE] Judge Neil Gorsuch has been front and center as Oklahoma’s death penalty process has been repeatedly called into question in recent years, hearing key cases at the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit over the state’s handling of executions — and siding with the government.

Just a few months ago, Gorsuch — now President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court — ruled against the estate of a man who was executed in one of the worst botched lethal injections in US history. Gorsuch and two other judges ruled that it was an “innocent misadventure” or an “isolated mishap,” but not cruel and unusual punishment.

In that case, Clayton Lockett’s estate sued the state of Oklahoma for constitutional violations in his 43-minute execution. Lockett was given a controversial sedative called midazolam, then two drugs that cause immense pain: a paralytic and a drug to stop the heart.

After he was injected with the drugs, Lockett raised himself on the gurney and said, “Shit is fucking with me.” Executioners had thought he was already dead.

Members of the state’s execution team examined his IV, which was set up near his groin and covered by a blanket. When they moved the blanket, they discovered the IV had infiltrated, creating swelling the size of between a golf ball and a tennis ball. The drugs weren’t going into his veins like they were supposed to.

The prison warden called it a “bloody mess.” The state attempted to call off the execution 30 minutes in, but Lockett died anyway 10 minutes later.

“Everyone acknowledges that Lockett suffered during his execution,” Judge Gregory Phillips wrote in a ruling against his estate, which Gorsuch signed on to.

“Here, the Amended Complaint describes exactly the sort of ‘innocent misadventure’ or ‘isolated mishap’ that” a prior Supreme Court case “excuses from the definition of cruel and unusual punishment,” the court wrote. “Thus, Lockett’s suffering did not run afoul of the Eighth Amendment.”

The judges ruled that Oklahoma was not “deliberately indifferent” in the execution.

“Simply put, the Eighth Amendment does not require ‘the avoidance of all risk of pain in carrying out executions.’”

Another Travel Ban [Locking You In]: IRS Moves To Revoke Passports For Unpaid Taxes

From [Forbes] President Trump's executive order on travel may be generating big protests, but an IRS missive on travel and passports may not go down too well either. More than a year ago, in H.R.22, Congress gave the IRS a new weapon to collect taxes. Tax code Section 7345 is labeled, “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.” The law isn't limited to criminal tax cases, or even cases where the IRS thinks you are trying to flee. The idea of the law is to use travel as a way to enforce tax collections. It was proposed and rejected in 2012. But by late 2015, Congress passed it and President Obama signed it.

Now, over a year later, the IRS has finally released new details on its website. If you have seriously delinquent tax debt, IRS can notify the State Department. The State Department generally will not issue or renew a passport after receiving certification from the IRS. The IRS has not yet started certifying tax debt to the State Department. The IRS says certifications will begin in early 2017, and the IRS website will be updated to indicate when this process has been implemented.

Federal judge Orders National Halt on Trump's Unlawful Immigration Restrictions

From [JURIST] A judge for the US District Court for the Western District of Washington ruled Friday in favor of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson [official websites] in issuing a stay [text, PDF] of President Donald Trump's controversial immigration restrictions. The nationwide temporary retraining order forbids government employees from carrying out Trump's executive order [text] barring immigration from certain states, based on the irreparable economic damage the states would incur from such a ban. Judge James Robart stated, "[t]he executive order adversely affects the state's residents in areas of employment, education, business, family relations and freedom to travel," and added that "[t]hese harms are significant and ongoing." The Trump administration responded, with the president tweeting, "[t]he opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" and the White House releasing a statement,

[a]t the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate. The president's order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people.

Robart's temporary restraining order will stand until the parties have an opportunity to fully litigate the issue or an emergency stay overrules it. 

Trump signed the executive order [JURIST op-ed] in late January. Only a day later, a judge for the Eastern District of New York issued an emergency stay [JURIST report], temporarily preventing execution of the law, until the question of whether it applied to valid visa holders could be resolved. The issue was resolved by a district judge in Michigan, who ordered [JURIST report] that the travel ban could not be applied to legal citizens, including those holding visas.

Classified FBI Documents Show "Ghost Skin" Racists Quietly Maintain a Large Presence in Local Police Departments

The FBI memo states that law enforcement had recently become aware of the term “ghost skins,” used among white supremacists to describe “those who avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.” [White supremacy/racism is carried out through deception & violence. Racists are white degenerates who suffer from the mental illness of comparison & although they are unable to produce color & lack melanin, they nevertheless imagine themselves to be separate & supremely atop of a make believe hierarchy of all existence wherein they imagine themselves to be higher than what they imagine you to be]. Like falling out of a tree, there really can be no set plan or code made to deal with such persons who are also "police officers" in the for-real world. Only awareness can help you deal with a psychopathicmaniac cop 

From [The Intercept] WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND other white domestic extremists maintain an active presence in U.S. police departments and other law enforcement agencies. A striking reference to that conclusion, notable for its confidence and the policy prescriptions that accompany it, appears in a classified FBI Counterterrorism Policy Guide from April 2015, obtained by The Intercept. The guide, which details the process by which the FBI enters individuals on a terrorism watchlist, the Known or Suspected Terrorist File, notes that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers,” and explains in some detail how bureau policies have been crafted to take this infiltration into account.

Although these right-wing extremists have posed a growing threat for years, federal investigators have been reluctant to publicly address that threat or to point out the movement’s longstanding strategy of infiltrating the law enforcement community.

No centralized recruitment process or set of national standards exists for the 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States, many of which have deep historical connections to racist ideologies. As a result, state and local police as well as sheriff’s departments present ample opportunities for white supremacists and other right-wing extremists looking to expand their power base.

In a heavily redacted version of an October 2006 FBI internal intelligence assessment, the agency raised the alarm over white supremacist groups’ “historical” interest in “infiltrating law enforcement communities or recruiting law enforcement personnel.” The effort, the memo noted, “can lead to investigative breaches and can jeopardize the safety of law enforcement sources or personnel.” The memo also states that law enforcement had recently become aware of the term “ghost skins,” used among white supremacists to describe “those who avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.” In at least one case, the FBI learned of a skinhead group encouraging ghost skins to seek employment with law enforcement agencies in order to warn crews of any investigations.

That report appeared after a series of scandals involving local police and sheriff’s departments. In Los Angeles, for example, a U.S. District Court judge found in 1991 that members of a local sheriff’s department had formed a neo-Nazi gang and habitually terrorized black and Latino residents. In Chicago, Jon Burge, a police detective and rumored KKK member, was fired, and eventually prosecuted in 2008, over charges relating to the torture of at least 120 black men during his decadeslong career. Burge notoriously referred to an electric shock device he used during interrogations as the “nigger box.” In Cleveland, officials found that a number of police officers had scrawled “racist or Nazi graffiti” throughout their department’s locker rooms. In Texas, two police officers were fired when it was discovered they were Klansmen. One of them said he had tried to boost the organization’s membership by giving an application to a fellow officer he thought shared his “white, Christian, heterosexual values.

Although the FBI has not publicly addressed the issue of white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement since that 2006 report, in a 2015 speech, FBI Director James Comey made an unprecedented acknowledgment of the role historically played by law enforcement in communities of color: “All of us in law enforcement must be honest enough to acknowledge that much of our history is not pretty.” Comey and the agency have been less forthcoming about that history’s continuation into the present.

IN 2009, SHORTLY after the election of Barack Obama, a Department of Homeland Security intelligence study, written in coordination with the FBI, warned of the “resurgence” of right-wing extremism. “Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African-American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda,” the report noted, singling out “disgruntled military veterans” as likely targets of recruitment. “Right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat.”

Fear of Losing Control & Being Replaced by Non-Whites Fuels Trump White House & the Global System of White Supremacy 

Racists Practice Racism to Survive. White people are the vanishing majority in the U.S. The white population in the U.S. is shrinking and white folks have a growing fear of "numerial inadequacy." The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that by 2047 non-white persons will be the majority of the US population. Since 2013, census figures have also showed that for the first time in U.S. history, the majority of babies are non-white.  Since 2013 more white people have died in the United States than were born. Furthermore, the Census Bureau says that the ranks of white Americans will likely drop with every passing year. No other group showed a similar falloff. [MORE

Additionally white people are genetic recessive. In general, this means they cannot reproduce a white child when they have sexual relations with non-whites. The white "race" can be replaced or "genetically annihilated" through such assimilation or social intermingling with non-whites;

White plus Black equals Colored.

White plus Brown equals Colored.

White plus Yellow equals Colored.

As whites have been consistently declining, Black and Brown populations are surging.[MORE] and [MORE] and [MORE].
