Prison for illegal immigrant who livestreamed drunken-driving crash that killed sister

A young woman in California has been sentenced to more than six years in prison for driving drunk while livestreaming the crash that killed her younger sister.

The Merced Sun Star reported that Obdulia Sanchez, 19, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment stemming from the July crash.

The car driven by Sanchez veered onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos, about 100 miles south of San Francisco. Authorities say she overcorrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn. Ejected and killed was her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline.

Prosecutors say Sanchez was livestreaming on Instagram while driving, and the video shows her taking her hands off the steering wheel.

“I didn’t even know I looked like a monster — I look like a freaking horrible monster,” Sanchez said in court last July.

“That was not my intention at all. I just didn’t know the video was so horrible.”

Sanchez admitted that she often livestreamed on Instagram while driving, saying she would “do it all the time.”

“Trust me, it’s like a reflex,” she said. “Everybody does it. Everybody does. They take Snapchats. Why not? People take video of them in cars like all the time.”

Uranium One informant says Moscow paid millions in bid to influence Clinton

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration.

The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff.

In the statement, obtained by Fox News, Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

 

Uranium One is a Canadian mining company whose sale to a Russian firm was approved in 2010. The U.S. government was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the U.S. uranium supply. The transaction has faced renewed scrutiny after The Hill reported last year that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S., related to a subsidiary of the same Russian firm.

Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill want to know how the deal was approved the following year by an inter-agency committee.

 

Democrat Lawmakers Push Bill to Make Tide Pod Look ‘Less Appetizing’

What has our country come to?

New York City Democrats State Sen. Brad Holyman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas introduced legislation Tuesday in Albany that would prohibit manufacturers from making detergent pods that look like candy or other edible items according to the Associated Press.

The bills, proposed in the New York State Assembly and Senate, would require detergent packets to be one color, have packaging that is not see-through, and carry warnings about the risk of poisoning if pods are ingested.

“Bright colored detergent pods look like candy, they look like toys,” said Simotas, who introduced the bill in the Assembly.

Simotas and Holyman say that the bright-colored packaging, appealing smell, and squishy texture of the pods can tempt children or adults with dementia into thinking the packets are edible. The lawmakers argue that state regulation prohibiting manufacturers from packaging the pods a certain way could reduce the risk of poisonings.

“They might as well say bite me on them, because that is what they offer,” Holyman, the bill’s sponsor in the Senate, said.

Some state legislators are not on board with the proposal, arguing that the state should be working on more pressing matters.

“The key is you just shouldn’t eat it,” said Assemblyman Karl Brabenec, a Republican. “I mean any laundry detergent, whether it’s brown, red, green, whatever the case might be. It’s just ridiculous.”

The “Tide Pods Challenge” became an Internet viral sensation, mostly among teenagers, after several people began posting videos of themselves ingesting small, colorful laundry detergent pods. The trend has resulted in multiple hospitalizations for poisoning.

Companies have started initiatives that would lessen the number of poisonings resulting from the dangerous viral trend.

Proctor and Gamble, Tide’s parent company, launched an effort to warn people of the dangers of ingesting Tide Pods.

YouTube announced that it would delete any Tide Pod videos posted on its site that encourage teenagers to ingest poisonous detergent.

Pelosi Wastes 8 HOURS and $1.2 million in Filibuster on Pathway to Citizenship for Illegals

Clad in four-inch heels, Pelosi spoke for eight hours and seven minutes and was given a standing ovation by her Democratic colleagues when she yielded the floor at 6:11 p.m.

In her remarks, Pelosi announced that she and many fellow House Democrats would oppose the package unless House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., promised to allow a vote on a plan to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally.

“Let Congress work its will,” said Pelosi, who noted that Senate Republicans have slated a debate on the politically freighted subject starting next week. “What are you afraid of?”

According to the House historian’s office, Pelosi appeared to have set a record for the longest continuous speech in the chamber’s history. The previous record, of five hours and 15 minutes, was set by Rep. Champ Clark, D-Mo., in 1909.

Pelosi’s speech would not have come close to the length of the 10 longest filibusters in Senate history. The most recent notable filibuster came in April 2017, when Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., spoke for 15 hours and 28 minutes in opposition to the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

In 2013, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, delivered the longest filibuster in 60 years when he spoke for 21 hours and 18 minutes against a bill to end the 2013 government shutdown in an effort to defund ObamaCare.

Pelosi’s speech was not considered a filibuster, which can take place only in the Senate. However, House leaders are often granted extra time to speak on the floor, a privilege known as the “magic minute.” For example, then-Minority Leader John Boehner spoke for more than an hour against a cap-and-trade bill that passed the House in 2009.

President Trump moved to end former President Barack Obama’s illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program last year, giving Congress a March 5 deadline to pass legislation to replace it. However, a federal judge has indefinitely blocked Trump from terminating the program’s protections, blunting the deadline’s immediate impact.

“You see, these people are being deported,” Pelosi said at one point, taking out a tissue. “We can do something today to at least make whole the children.”

Her speech drew little reaction from Republicans, except for a tweet from the Republican Congressional Congressional Committee.

The court system also wasted 1.2 million dollars while waiting for Ms. Pelosi to finish. Government spending is through the roof. Who does she think she is?

Child-Molester Quincy Jones says he “dated Ivanka Trump”

Recording legend and alleged child molester cover-up artist Quincy Jones claimed that he once dated Ivanka Trump, who is 48 years his junior.

Jones told Vulture he and the First Daughter dated in 2006.

The winner of 28 Grammys told Vulture he and the first daughter dated in 2006, “I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

“Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherf–-er.’”

“She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”

– Quincy Jones on Ivanka Trump

“She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life,” Jones continued. “Wrong father, though.”

Jones did not hold back on his views about her dad, either.

“I used to hang out with him,” Jones stated. “He’s a crazy motherf–-er. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him.”

The Daily Chronicle reached out to the White House but did not receive comment at the time of this story’s publication.

VIDEO: Man Masturbating In My Little Pony Aisle Caught On Wall-Mart Surveillance Camera

In what might be the most disgusting public disturbance of 2018 thus far, a man was caught on camera in a Wall-Mart doing the dirty in the My Little Pony section of a Dallas, Georgia Wall-Mart.

Jaydin Cardiff, of Marietta, Georgia, thought he’d go to a store in a distant town, free from the social shackles of his hometown, Dallas, where he’s lived for over 48 years. What he wasn’t expecting was to get caught.

“I done showed up around 3, 4 am on a Tuesday night. Ain’t no managers to be seen,” Cardiff told Newsweek reporters last week. “But then, out of nowhere, these two men, tall–and I’m six foot three, I’m a big boy–tackle me to the ground.”

But now, Jaydin is pressing charges. “I felt like I was being unfairly assaulted,” Jaydin said. “I durn tell ’em[sic], ‘Hey! I’m obedient, I was an officer in the army, please respect me as I done respect you and this here country! But they didn’t. And I haven’t gotten one since.”

Cardiff appears to lack a basic understanding of public indecency laws, but if the security men did in fact continue to attack him post-surrender, they might be sharing a cell with him one day.

This story will be updated as it develops.

What the Dems Won’t Tell You About the Stock Market Decline

After the nearly two-year record breaking stock upswing prompted by Trump’s Presidency and Policies, the market appears to be in a state of decline.

As usual, the Democrats had a field day.

But they might want to hold off on popping those six-figure champagne bottles a little bit longer.

Still don’t believe me? Take Jacques Baudelaire, noted economics policy professor at Yale University:

What Democrats fail to recognize is what’s known as the Push-Pull Theory. That is, with Democratic initiatives like raising wages and expanding entitlements programs comes at the cost of the businesses–the “Jobsmakers,” as I coined in my book, The Great Sham: How the Clintons Destroyed the Business Sector. With increased overhead and decreased confidence, the stocks plummet and the jobs disappear. To put it in euphemism: Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, and their crooked clan are working behind the scenes to dismantle all of the good work Trump has done for the economy… which is a shame, really.

Trump’s Presidency has been full of successes. Whether it’s bringing more jobs to coal miners, draining the swamp, and even directly causing black unemployment to reach an all-time historic low. But with Democrats threatening to undermine all of that–with success–through various underhanded tactics, our vastly divided country still has a long way to go.

But, perhaps this is just what the Dems–the Clintons, Pelosi, and even Bernie Sanders wanted all along. Less jobs, more money (for them), and virtue signalling the bottom line. Ignorance is bliss, after all.

Drag Queens to Teach Children at Swedish Library About Being Transgender

Cross-dressers ‘Lady Busty’ and ‘Miss Shameless’ are to teach children in Malmö the importance of equality and not to fear immigrants at events starting later this month.

From February 17th, Malmö City Library will begin holding Drag Queen Story Hours at which men dressed as women will read fairy tales encouraging children to experiment with gender.

“As an LGBT-certified library, we want to work actively with these issues,” said communications officer Johan Björkwall. “So when we were approached about [Drag Queen Story Hour] we said yes.”

Stefan Anderson and his husband Mats, veteran ‘drag queens’ who both work with young people, first held a storytelling session for children as their alter egos Lady Busty and Miss Shameless at last year’s Malmö Pride, taking inspiration from a similar project in San Francisco.

“Drag queens are mostly only seen on television and at nightclubs and pride parades, so it’s not often that they are close to children,” lamented Stefan, asserting that Drag Queen Story Hour will be “very useful for the children”.

Through storytelling, children will learn that it’s “important to break taboos and social norms”, Anderson said, adding: “We want to show that it’s fun not to have any limitations.”

Are they serious? What’s next, pedophilia?

Sarah Silverman: Pro-Life Law ‘Has Made Me Want to Eat an Aborted Fetus’

What did she say?

“Religious flexibility used to be such an excellent thing cuz it resembled this huge comprehensive thing in the nation, and now it’s simply this cover to legitimize loathe and poop like that,” Silverman said – about religious opportunity and still, small voice conditions.

Silverman and her colleague Lizz Winstead examined a bill presented as of late by the Oklahoma lawmaking body that forbids “the fabricate or offer of sustenance or items which utilize prematurely ended human embryos.”

The Oklahoma charge “was made in light of a claim that a sustenance lab was thinking about utilizing undifferentiated organisms to make counterfeit flavors,” LifeNews reports.

“This is fucking batshit,” Winstead said in regards to the Oklahoma charge. “A great deal of times they will make laws to influence you to imagine this is some scourge that should be tended to.”

“In the event that anything has ever constructed me need to eat a prematurely ended embryo, it’s this law,” Silverman at that point included.

The combine additionally examined a specific inner voice condition that expects centers to “incinerate or cover each prematurely ended baby.”

After Winstead reported Mark Hamill would give premature births amid the pledge drive with a “Jedi wand,” she said with tears in her eyes, “These individuals that give this stunning consideration to individuals are derided and avoided and they give actually a pathway to some person’s life each and every day.”

“Furthermore, in the event that we let them need to give the care and protect what they do, when we’ve all utilized it to end up noticeably better individuals, we’re completing an injury to our general public,” she included. “As that is the reason we take every necessary step.”

High school cancels musical after white student lands lead role

Social equity activists at a New York secondary school effectively close down a generation of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” after a white understudy handled a lead part.

Dissents of the creation started when an African-American understudy quit Ithaca High School’s melodic generation because of the part of Esmeralda being given to a white schoolmate.

“It demonstrates to you that venue wasn’t made for you,” the understudy told the Ithaca Journal. “What’s more, it demonstrates to you that, in the event that you can’t get the parts that are composed for you, what parts would you say you will get?”

Understudy activists at that point joined together under the umbrella of Students United Ithaca and composed a letter that incorporated a rundown of requests, saying that, while the young woman give a role as Esmeralda was “a stellar on-screen character, vocalist, and artist” any generation would be “fortunate to have,” she couldn’t be thrown in this part since she is the “encapsulation of whiteness.”

“Best case scenario, this is social allotment,” the understudy aggregate composed, affirming racial predisposition inside the Performing Arts Program at IHS, and “at the very least, it is whitewashing, a bigot throwing practice which has its foundations in minstrelsy.”

While the understudy activists requested “dark colored and dark female understudies” be considered for the part, the character being referred to is half Roma, half French, as per the novel by Victor Hugo. SUI focused on “the book and the melodic ought not be conflated” in light of the fact that the melodic is just “enlivened” by Hugo’s composition.

The gathering calls attention to that the Musical Theater International generation control records her part as a “Romani lady” who is “a pariah racially and socially.”

The Ithaca City School District declared it drop the melodic trying to be “more comprehensive and socially responsive” in their “endeavors to dispose of institutional inclinations.”

The secondary school is anticipating putting on “another cooperative venture” rather, including that “this isn’t about a specific employee or ICSD representative.”

Reverse racism anyone?
