The FBI confirms agents are executing a search warrant at an office of a GOP fundraiser/consulting firm in Annapolis, the 11 News I-Team has learned. The investigation is being run out of Washington, not locally, the I-Team has learned.The FBI used trash bags to cover a window at the offices of Strategic Campaign Group at 191 Main St. The firm is touted for pioneering the use of technology in political campaigns, and it represents GOP candidates nationwide.


comedy I guess because it more made me laugh than be terrified.


Looks up the "digital" catapult. 

It uses an electromagnetic linear induction motor.

Looks that up.

This is hard to understand?

I guess I am fucking Einstein.

Fucking Christ this guy is dumb.

Mr. Trump also raised some eyebrows in South Korea by saying that Korea used to be "part of China."

We're going to bomb NK and get a lot of Koreans on both sides of the DMZ killed  :smith:

Oh no then they won't be able to pay us back!

He also said he wants South Korea to pay the cost of the U.S. THAAD anti-missile defense system, which he estimated at $1 billion, and intends to renegotiate or terminate a U.S. free trade pact with South Korea because of a deep trade deficit with Seoul.


"I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Ashad [?] is doing--clearly, I understand, thank you--I appreciate that--there was not, in the, in the, he brought 'em into, to the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But I'm saying the way that the sha--Assad used them, where he went into towns, dropped them down to innocent--into the middle of towns, it was brought, so, the use of it, I appreciate the clarification."

Goddammit I should've gone to these places while I still had the chance.


My co-worker went to this last year and told me about it. Sigh...

CNN is playing in the hospital waiting room and all I hear is  "OMG OBAMACARE IS A MESS!!!" from these damn Republican talking heads. Like it's the greatest failure of all time.  There was some tea party nut and she was practically foaming at the mouth. Then some dick from Louisiana wouldn't answer a question about whether people currently covered under ACA would lose coverage under their garbage plan.  He just kept repeating how people will have choices... Sure asshole.

Fuck I wish I could change the channel.   

This has a bit more info. 

-Between 2006 and 2010 in the Rochester, NY, area, approximately 300 immigrants with legal status were arrested by Border Patrol agents, then released. The arrests coincided with an incentive program that rewarded agents with cash bonuses and Home Depot gift cards based on the number of arrests they made.

-According to the ACLU of Arizona, in Tucson, community members report CBP agents entering courthouses and hospitals (including maternity wards) and approaching and interrogating hospital patients, motorists, and pedestrians. A patient at University of Arizona Medical Center was reportedly forced to deliver her child with a CBP agent in the room. CBP agents in Tucson regularly respond to calls to investigate from police, hospital staff, and school officials. These incidents often result from and encourage racial profiling of U.S. citizens and lawful residents.


-In April 2012, residents of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State filed a class-action lawsuit challenging the Border Patrol's practice of stopping vehicles and interrogating occupants without legal justification. CBP settled the lawsuit and agreed to require training for Border Patrol agents in the area on Fourth Amendment protections against illegal searches and seizures, and to provide the ACLU with data regarding all traffic stops that take place in the area for the next 18 months.These terms should be extended nationwide and data collected from CBP checkpoints as well as roving patrols.

Introduced in House (01/23/2017)

Choices in Education Act of 2017

This bill repeals the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and limits the authority of the Department of Education (ED) such that ED is authorized only to award block grants to qualified states.

The bill establishes an education voucher program, through which each state shall distribute block grant funds among local educational agencies (LEAs) based on the number of eligible children within each LEA's geographical area. From these amounts, each LEA shall: (1) distribute a portion of funds to parents who elect to enroll their child in a private school or to home-school their child, and (2) do so in a manner that ensures that such payments will be used for appropriate educational expenses.

To be eligible to receive a block grant, a state must: (1) comply with education voucher program requirements, and (2) make it lawful for parents of an eligible child to elect to enroll their child in any public or private elementary or secondary school in the state or to home-school their child.

No Hungry Kids Act

The bill repeals a specified rule that established certain nutrition standards for the national school lunch and breakfast programs. (In general, the rule requires schools to increase the availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat free milk in school meals; reduce the levels of sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat in school meals; and meet children's nutritional needs within their caloric requirements.)

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse

President Trump will propose a federal budget that dramatically increases defense-related spending by $54 billion while cutting other federal agencies by the same amount, according to an administration official.

The proposal represents a massive increase in federal spending related to national security, while other priorities, especially foreign aid, will see significant reductions.

According to the White House, the defense budget will increase by 10 percent. But without providing any specifics, the administration said that most other discretionary spending programs will be slashed to pay for it. Officials singled out foreign aid, one of the smallest parts of the federal budget, saying it would see "large reductions" in spending.

Not sure which thread this belongs in....

The Kansas-City Star reports that Adam W. Purinton allegedly shot three men in the incident --Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32; Alok Madasani, 32, and Ian Grillot, 24, who was shot after trying to intervene. Kuchibhotla died Wednesday evening.

Witnesses report that they heard Purinton yell "Get out of my country" before shooting Kuchibhotla and Madsani. After fleeing the scene, Purinton made his way to an Applebees in the town of Clinton, reportedly telling the bartender there that he "needed a place to hide out because he had just killed two Middle Eastern men." Neither Madsani or Kuchibhotla are of Middle Eastern descent; they worked as engineers at Garmin and are believed to be from India, the Verge reports.

Yeah, I like her style. This piece was also pretty good:

In other news, Richard Spencer was just kicked out of CPAC. They're saying they kicked him out because they don't support his views, so even though he had bought tickets, security escorted him out. lol. So much for "free speech," eh guys?

One of the speakers, Dan Schneider, just called the alt-right a "hateful left-wing fascist group." :hmm:

Politics and Current Events / Re: Immigration megathread

Under the Obama administration, undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes were the priority for removal. Now, immigration agents, customs officers and border patrol agents have been directed to remove anyone convicted of any criminal offense.

That includes people convicted of fraud in any official matter before a governmental agency and people who "have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits."

The change in enforcement priorities will require a considerable increase in resources. With an estimated 11 million people in the country illegally, the government has long had to set narrower priorities, given the constraints on staffing and money.

In the so-called guidance documents released on Tuesday, the department is directed to begin the process of hiring 10,000 new immigration and customs agents, expanding the number of detention facilities and creating an office within Immigration and Customs Enforcement to help families of those killed by undocumented immigrants. Mr. Trump had some of those relatives address his rallies in the campaign, and several were present when he signed an executive order on immigration last month at the Department of Homeland Security.

The directives would also instruct Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as well as Customs and Border Protection, the parent agency of the Border Patrol, to begin reviving a program that recruits local police officers and sheriff's deputies to help with deportation, effectively making them de facto immigration agents. The effort, called the 287(g) program, was scaled back during the Obama administration.

The officials also made clear that nothing in the directives would change the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which provides work permits and deportation protection for the young people commonly referred to as Dreamers.

There was no mention of the National Guard thing, so that is good...
