An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new “knife control” policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.
The “tough, immediate” measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.

“Don’t worry – just keep tweeting – you’ll get back on top! (or does Trump prefer you on bottom?) Either way, keep your chin up big fella..XO,” Kimmel later responded after Hannity called him a “pervert” and “Harvey Weinstein Jr.”

LONDON Mayor Sadiq Khan has responded after facing a huge amount of criticism for not speaking out following the news that London’s death rate had overtaken that of New York for knife and gun crime.
Responding to Mr Lammy’s comments, Mr Khan’s spokesperson said: “The Mayor’s door is always open to MPs who want to discuss vital issues in the capital and he frequently visits boroughs right across London to see what’s happening on the ground – and the Mayor and Deputy Mayor for Policing have been out with the police on knife sweeps this year.
“Knife crime is an issue across London and the country – and one that the Mayor takes extremely seriously.
“The safety of Londoners is his number one priority.
“We are focusing all our energy and resources on bringing those responsible to justice and Sadiq refuses to accept that nothing can be done to stem the appalling tide of violent killings. He is determined to work ceaselessly to stop it.”

The Obama administration sent U.S. taxpayer funds to a group backed by billionaire George Soros to fund left-wing activities in Albania, a conservative watchdog group says.The group, Judicial Watch, obtained 32 pages of records from the Justice Department this week through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.)The new documents show USAID funds were sent through the agency’s Civil Society Project to back Soros’ left-wing “East West Management Institute” through USAID’s “Justice for All” campaign. USAID provided $8.8 million in 2016 to that campaign. The Justice for All Project was designed to strengthen the effectiveness and transparency of the courts in Albania.
“The Obama administration quietly spent at least $9 million in U.S. taxpayers’ dollars in direct collusion with left-wing billionaire George Soros’ backing of a socialist government in Albania,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement Wednesday. “It is particularly outrageous that the State Department allowed the Soros operation to help direct taxpayer funds to other groups.”

California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday pardoned five ex-convicts facing deportation, including two whose families fled the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia four decades ago.The pardons don’t automatically stop deportation proceedings, but eliminate the state convictions federal authorities based their deportation decisions on. That gives the men’s lawyers strong legal arguments before immigration judges to try to prevent the deportations.”The pardon does provide enormous benefit to immigrants facing deportation,” said Anoop Prasad, an immigration staff attorney at Asian Law Caucus.Brown’s intervention for the men — among 56 pardoned — marked the Democratic governor’s third consecutive pardon round in which he intervened on behalf of immigrants who were deported or faced deportation because of criminal convictions. Brown has accused the administration of President Donald Trump of “basically going to war” with California over immigration policy.

Families hoping for news outside the police station were dispersed with tear gas and authorities did not give information until late into the evening.
“The State Prosecutor’s Office guarantees to deepen investigations to immediately clarify what happened in these painful events that have left dozens of Venezuelan families in mourning,” said Chief Prosecutor Tarek William Saab on Twitter.
Venezuelan prisons are notoriously overcrowded and filled with weapons and drugs. Riots leaving dozens dead are not uncommon.
State official Jesus Santander said the state of Carabobo was in mourning after the incident in the city of Valencia.
“Forensic doctors are determining the number of fatalities,” Santander said. A policeman was shot in the leg and was in a stable condition and firefighters had extinguished the flames, he said.

Today’s gun control and confiscation rally was nothing new. Nazis and leftists have been using children for decades in their attempts to take guns away from law abiding citizens.Here’s a history lesson for young adults in America – Hitler’s regime took away guns from people in Germany and then herded those they did not like into boxcars and shipped them to concentration camps where they were enslaved, beaten, raped and murdered. The victims didn’t fire a shot in self-defense because their guns were taken away.

Today Pres. Trump signed the ominous bill. This bill is a democratic pork smorgasbord, designed to neuter Republicans in the coming 2108 elections. It does nothing for border security, in fact it cuts back on holding facilities and border guards. This bill is going to force our border patrols to go back to the Obama policy of catch and release. The sad thing is that this bill does more for the security of other nations like Libya, and it does the United States.
Pres. Trump made the statement that he would never do this again and that he was doing it only to support the military. I’m sorry present from what you going to lose the house and the Senate and you are going to become a pawn of the deep state for your last two years in office. And I guarantee you you’ll get reelected, SAD.
