Ducking questions, blaming others, protecting criminals, slipping on his own b.s. and tripping up over meaningful questions that need answers. This is the typical slipshod slay of the hand. But the Governor fails to answer the question on how providing sanctuary to illegal aliens doesn’t cost the taxpayers any money. Apparently Mallow forgets the cost of the illegal burden placed on the taxpayers who the majority collect welfare etc.
Trump addressed the NRA on Friday firing several bullets at his opponents. The crowd cheered as Trump, in full battle dress, did not hesitate to fire shot after shot straight to the head of his opponents, saving some of the best shots for Robert Mueller.
While speaking before members of the National Rifle Association on Friday, President Trump announced the United States is planning to withdraw from the Arms Trade Treaty, a United Nations agreement signed by former President Barack Obama in 2013, which regulates the $70 billion business in conventional arms — everything, Fox News writes, from tanks to small arms. The treaty seeks to keep weapons out of the hands of human rights abusers.
Mueller engaged in ‘total dereliction of duty’ by failing to further investigate the Steele Dossier: Strassel
Suggesting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller tried covering for the FBI, Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel told Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Friday Mueller engaged in a “total dereliction of duty” by not further investigating the infamous Steele dossier.
“I think that what he did is a total dereliction of duty — that your job is to look into Russian interference in our elections and here is this central document which caused so much political mayhem for two years,” she said on “America’s Newsroom.”
After noting concern over the dossier’s potential ties to the Kremlin, she criticized Mueller for publishing his report without delving deeper into the Russia investigation’s origins. “I’m not sure how you go there, except for with the intent purpose of shielding the FBI,” she said.
Strassel speculated that Mueller didn’t delve deeper into the dossier because he spent so many years leading the FBI. “Much of this document does read as a defense of the FBI,” she said of the Mueller report.
“It seems very much as though he just didn’t want to touch anything that would bring any disrepute on the agency,” Strassel added.
The Mueller report — which did not charge the president with obstruction of justice or collusion — has caused an uproar in Washington where President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats feuded over whether the government should further investigate the report’s findings.
For Trump, the Steele dossier was evidence that the investigation started on bogus information supported, in part, by the Democratic Party. The dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, sourced information from Russia and contained a number of salacious and unverified claims about Trump and his associates.

AOC IS A HIDDEN MUSLIM – HAS NO COMMENTS ON THE CHRISTIAN MASSACRE IN SRI LANKA
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being slammed over her social media silence in the wake of the Easter Sunday terror attacks in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lankan’s defense minister on Tuesday said a ‘preliminary investigation’ indicated that the Easter Sunday church bombings by a radical Islamist group were retaliation for the New Zealand mosque attacks last month.
Ruwan Wijewardene, a junior minister for defense, cited a preliminary investigation and said the deadly Easter Sunday bombings that resulted in 321 deaths and more than 500 injuries, was revenge for the “attack against Muslims in Christchurch,” Reuters reported.
He made the comment without citing evidence or explaining where the information came from.
Last month, a heavily-armed shooter killed Muslim worshipers during Friday prayers, massacring 49 people in two New Zealand mosques on March 15 while broadcasting a horrific live stream of the terror attack.

WHO’S ZAHRAN HASHIM, ALLEGED MASTERMIND OF ONE OF THE SRI LANKA ATTACKS?

Shortly after bombing attacks struck Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, media reports began disseminating the name of one of the terrorists responsible for events that killed 290 people and wounded more than 500 others.
The alleged suicide bomber and mastermind behind the attack on the Shangri La hotel has been identified as Islamic extremist Moulvi Zahran Hashim. An Islamist extremist imam, he was a prolific lecturer for National Tawheed Jamaath.
Colombo (AFP) – The suicide bomber waited patiently in a queue for the Easter Sunday breakfast buffet at Sri Lanka’s Cinnamon Grand hotel before setting off explosives strapped to his back.
Carrying a plate, the man, who had registered at the hotel the night before as Mohamed Azzam Mohamed, was just about to be served when he set off his devastating strike in the packed restaurant, a manager at the Sri Lankan hotel said.
“There was utter chaos,” said the manager, who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity as he is not allowed to speak for the company.
The Taprobane restaurant at the hotel was having one of its busiest days of the year for the Easter holiday weekend.
“It was 8:30 am and it was busy. It was families,” the manager told AFP.
“He came up to the top of the queue and set off the blast,” he added.
“One of our managers who was welcoming guests was among those killed instantly.”
The bomber also died. Par
Suicide bombers under a coordinated attack blew themselves up in a half dozen churches, killing hundreds and wounding hundreds more. The victims were attending church services for the Easter holiday. Not that we have inside information, but this appears to be the work of Muslim Jihadists who have shown the propensity to wreck havoc upon Christians. Keep in mind that Sri Lanka is majority Buddhist and Hindu with approximately 10% Muslim. Only Jihadists, who have the wherewithal to coordinate these types of attacks as they have done so in the past, are the ones most likely to be responsible.
The attacks in Sri Lanka struck three churches: St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, St. Anthony’s Shrine in Colombo and Batticaloa’s Zion Church, according to Pakistan’s The Dawn newspaper. Police initially estimated that only 20 were killed but soon revised that number to 137, with 45 murdered in Colombo, 25 in Batticaloa, and 67 in Negombo. Three major hotels were struck in Colombo, all of them in a line along a major road that links several important central districts of the city. These included the Cinnamon Grand, Shangri-La and Kingsbury.
A temporary social media ban was imposed after the blasts and a night-time curfew will begin at 6 p.m. local time.
In a statement from Jerusalem, the Catholic Church in the Holy Land said it was praying “for the souls of the victims and ask for speedy recovery of the injured, and ask God to inspire the terrorists to repent of their killing and intimidation.”
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST
Coordinated series of attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka conjures up memories of previous terrorist attacks. Striking at worshipers at prayer reminds us of the Christchurch Mosque shootings in New Zealand on March 15. It also appears linked to previous Easter attacks, including the 2017 Palm Sunday assault in Egypt in 2017 in which 45 people were murdered, and the terrorist attack in Lahore in 2016 that killed 75. In coordination and the number of sites chosen it is also similar to the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166.
It is a hallmark of our era that when it comes to mass murder and coordinated terror attacks we have a long list of past experiences to choose from. In the last decades the growing number of terrorist attacks by far-right Islamist extremists, white nationalists and others has become an almost daily event. Last week gunmen, allegedly terrorists from Iran, murdered 14 people in western Pakistan in an attack on Pakistani security forces. Earlier in April, a bombing attack – not widely reported outside Pakistan and thought to be carried out by the Islamic State – targeted Shi’ites in Quetta. And on Friday there was an attack made on government institutions in Kabul.

Sri Lankan media: seven arrested in police raid, three officers killed
Seven people have been arrested during a raid on a house in Colombo on Sunday, according to local media in Sri Lanka. Three officers reportedly died in the raid. We’ll bring you more details when we get them.FacebookTwitter
Police say they have arrested three people so far. The government put the figure at seven earlier but police say several others have been arrested but not questioned. They remain in the dark as to the perpetrators and their motive, they say.
All of the politicians immediately condemned the attacks. They offered support for the victims families, they prayed that their souls will enter the Pearly Gates. They said that this incident won’t stop us from living in peace. They called the perpetrators sick in mind. Others were outraged, said the bombers must be brought to justice. The Pope weighed in saying the attack was “such cruel violence.”
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe addressed the media on Sunday evening.
During the briefing, he referred to allegations that officials had been in possession of intelligence suggesting an impending attack.
“We must look into why adequate precautions were not taken. Neither I nor the Ministers were kept informed,” he said.
“For now the priority is to apprehend the attackers,” he added.
Muslim groups in Sri Lanka condemn attacks
Two Muslim groups in Sri Lanka condemned the attacks on churches and hotels in the country on Easter Sunday that killed more than 200 people.
The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka said it mourns the loss of innocent people in the blasts by violent elements who seek to divide religious and ethnic groups.

Most illegal immigrants in US receive government benefits, costing taxpayers billions: experts
Central American migrants are arriving by the thousands without a penny to their name. How do they get by? William La Jeunesse breaks down the cost.
This week, the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether to count self-identified illegal immigrants in the 2020 census. Cities worry adding the citizenship question could undercount 6.5 million people. Their argument, however, isn’t just about political power but billions of dollars in federal funds states expect.
“We’re talking about billions of dollars in taxpayer benefits over the next few years,” said Dan Stein, director of the right-leaning think tank, Federation for American Immigration Reform. “The payout for the taxpayer is enormous and income to the Treasury is miniscule.”
A FAIR study in 2017 found illegal immigrants are a net consumer of taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year, not including the cost of enforcing the border.
While federal benefits are supposed to be off limits, in practice many are not. More than 25,000 undocumented workers receive subsidized housing, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Children receive free education and most qualify for English lessons and free school breakfast and lunch.
Illegal immigrants do not qualify for Obamacare but under federal law, hospitals and clinics are required to provide urgent medical care without regard to legal status. Pregnant women are entitled to prenatal and postpartum care under the Women, Infants and Children program. Infant delivery costs are paid for by Medicaid. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found a federal-state immigrant insurance program cost $2 billion a year in emergency treatment, not including the $1.24 billion in infant delivery expenses.
Illegal immigrants are not entitled to food stamps, but families with U.S.-born children are. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, 31% of such families use the SNAP program and more than 50% of Central American families in the U.S. use at least one welfare program.
This is especially true of asylum seekers said Art Arthur, a former immigration judge now with the Center for Immigration Studies, an immigration think tank. Arthur said because there is a three to five year lag time between apprehension and court appearance, young asylum seekers put down roots, allowing many to access programs they are initially unaware or afraid to use.
“You’re going to buy a house, get a job, have kids,” he said. “So their entire life changes, and that means their claim changes. Because of a lack of a bright line for immigration judges, appeals are endless and people don’t leave.”
Recognizing that many illegal workers fill jobs communities need, 26 states offer them *state-funded* benefits. New York state offers up to $300 a month in cash assistance. Eleven states offer free or subsidized medical and hospital care. California offers food stamps, legal services and benefits for those over 65 or disabled. Gov. Gavin Newsom recently asked for an extra $50 million from lawmakers to serve the state’s illegal immigrant population.
Such sanctuary states and immigrant-friendly cities are an obvious draw, but others say it is all about finding work not using benefits.
The Current Population Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2018 found Central American families may struggle financially in the U.S. but they work (76%) at high rates than native-born Americans (73%).
“At the end of the day people are going to go where their jobs are, not necessarily where the services are,” said Ali Noorani, director of the National Immigration Forum. “So yes, 26 states may provide state-funded access to public benefits. But if those states don’t have a growing economy and don’t have jobs that are open immigrants, much as anybody else, they’re not going to see them.”
Up to 70% of immigrants apprehended at the border this fiscal year are families or unaccompanied minors claiming asylum. Unlike other border crossers, after six months asylum seekers qualify for work permits and most taxpayer subsidies. But because most are unskilled and uneducated, they earn minimum wage or less.
Almost half, according to the census survey, never finished high school. They earn 40% less than U.S.-born workers and about 50% of families live in poverty, requiring community support for food and cash for necessities. Some have sponsors, but most are usually immediate families that are not much better off.
“There is a cost for communities for sure,” Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., said last week outside a Salvation Army shelter in Yuma. “Whether it is in uncompensated care in hospitals or the education system in different ways. It has never really been measured, but it is very real.”
Advocates for illegal immigrants argue most studies are flawed because they do not account for their economic contribution to the economy as a whole. Not just because they perform jobs Americans won’t, but studies don’t account for their lower wage differential that produces cost savings to U.S. consumers.
“We need an immigration system that treats the American taxpayer fairly,” Noorani said. “Right now, our immigration system doesn’t treat the American taxpayer fairly and I would argue it really treats nobody fairly. At the federal level, what the Congress and the president need to do is work together to create an immigration system that is fair to the taxpayer and 10 or 11 million people who are undocumented.”
U.S. officials expect a million additional illegal immigrants this fiscal year, as the Border Patrol is currently apprehending up to 4,000 a day. Most will claim asylum, entitling them to government benefits.William La Jeunesse joined FOX News Channel (FNC) in March 1998 and currently serves as a Los Angeles-based correspondent.

The storm is gathering on our southern border, the rapes, murders, break-ins, thefts, killings, drugs imported into the United States from Mexico. Mostly Latinos from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala Mexico. The ramification of this territorial onslaught is yet to be seen, but we will hazard a guess of its result. We haven’t heard of any illegals from Costa Rica or Belize, not to mention Panama. What brings these criminals to the United States?
These trespassers are criminals from the outset, illegal crossing borders to come to the United States for free food, free welfare, free housing, free schooling, free medical care. They are not coming here for any other reason. There is no catastrophe, no war, no purges in their home country. They are not threatened by any sense of the imagination. The number one reason they are coming here for the life of leisure. And it is not beyond our vision that the Democrats have planted the seed for them to criminally storm our border.
Russell Pearce, a former president of the Arizona state Senate who helped author a controversial immigration law in the state, appeared to advocate for violence for the U.S. to save itself in remarks delivered earlier this week.
Pearce, a Republican, spoke Monday at a rally in Gilbert, Ariz., dubbed “Patriotism Over Socialism.” Other featured speakers included Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward and Laura Loomer, whose anti-Muslim social media posts have gotten her banned from Twitter, Uber and Lyft, the Arizona Republic reported.
“And it may take the shedding of blood to keep this Republic,” Pearce. “And I, for one, am willing to do whatever it takes.”
