Sessions punches back at failed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Sanctuary Cities

Over the weekend, Mayor of America’s murder capital Rahm Emanuel threatened a lawsuit against the federal government. The federal government doesn’t want to dish out federal funds to cities that do not cooperate with federal agencies or enforce federal laws.

“Chicago is a welcoming city and always will be, and we will not be blackmailed by President Trump’s Justice Department,” Emanuel said in announcing the suit. “Forcing us to choose between our values and our police department’s philosophy of community policing is a false choice, and it is a choice that would ultimately undermine our public safety agenda.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions would have none of it.

“To a degree perhaps unsurpassed by any other jurisdiction, the political leadership of Chicago has chosen deliberately and intentionally to adopt a policy that obstructs this country’s lawful immigration system,” Sessions said. “They have demonstrated an open hostility to enforcing laws designed to protect law enforcement — Federal, state, and local — and reduce crime, and instead have adopted an official policy of protecting criminal aliens who prey on their own residents.”

“The Mayor complains that the federal government’s focus on enforcing the law would require a ‘reordering of law enforcement practice in Chicago.’ But that’s just what Chicago needs: a recommitment to the rule of law and to policies that roll back the culture of lawlessness that has beset the city,” he said.

See you in court, gentlemen.

The Daily Caller has an exclusive story: Researcher Claims To Have Evidence One Of EPA’s Most Successful Clean Air Rules Is Based On Fabricated Data

Toxicologist Albert Donnay says he’s found evidence a 1989 study commissioned by EPA on the health effects of carbon monoxide, which, if true, could call into question 25 years of regulations and billions of dollars on catalytic converters for automobiles.

“They claimed to find an effect when there wasn’t one,” Donnay told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “They even fabricated the methods they used to get their results.”

“They were spinning this to give EPA what they wanted and commissioned,” Donnay said. “They reported results that could not have come from human beings.”

NOT A CULT: Google fires engineer who wrote memo

Mere days after a memo about the company’s diversity policies was leaked, Google has fired its author. If you missed the story, here it is in a nutshell: a Google engineer wrote a memo expressing his ideas about company policies, and because it didn’t parrot the accepted progressive dogma that saturates Google’s social engineering project, he was fired.

These progressive companies pay big lip service to tolerance and openness but in reality, those words have been redefined to signify that one adheres to an intractable “proper” set of cultural beliefs. There is no actual tolerance and openness in the way most people understand these words.

Following the social media outrage with calls for his termination and the creation of industry blacklists, Google CEO Sundar Pichai released a company-wide notice stating that the senior engineer violated the company’s Code of Conduct. Damore has since confirmed his dismissal.

The memo referred to Google as an ideological echo chamber, which it most certainly is — evidenced by the act of firing the man who dared to deviate from their fanatical progressive doctrine.

“However, portions of the memo violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace,” continued Pichai. “Our job is to build great products for users that make a difference in their lives. To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK. It is contrary to our basic values and our Code of Conduct, which expects ‘each Googler to do their utmost to create a workplace culture that is free of harassment, intimidation, bias and unlawful discrimination.’”

The Daily Caller viewed evidence of multiple internal emails showing conversations between various senior engineers demanding retribution for the memo’s contents and circulation.

Retribution. We should just KILL him. KILL THE HERETIC.

Son of Sinaloa Cartel leader turns himself in

The son of Sinaloa cartel leader surrendered to the U.S. feds last month and appeared in court yesterday for arraignment.

Damaso Lopez-Serrano, 29, is the son of Damaso Lopez-Nunez, who was arrested in May by Mexican authorities and was believed to have been fighting for control of the Sinaloa Cartel against the sons of its captured leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Also known as “Mini Lic,” Damaso Lopez-Serrano is a suspected senior official in the Sinaloa cartel and believed to be the highest-ranking Mexican cartel leader to surrender to authorities in the United States, the department said in a statement. He pleaded not guilty, local media reported.

The indictment charged that the suspect “knowingly conspired with others to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.”
