- “Raúl was taken into custody in front of Trump Tower for civil disobedience along with Rep. Gutierrez and Rep. Espaillat.”
Via Fox News:
Three Democratic congressmen were arrested outside Trump Tower after protesting the president’s immigration policies in New York City on Tuesday.
Arizona Rep. Raúl Grijalva, Illinois Rep. Luis Gutiérrez and New York Rep. Adriano Espaillat were taken into custody by police, according to Grijalva’s campaign Twitter account and a Gutiérrez aide.
Grijalva’s account tweeted that “Raúl was taken into custody in front of Trump Tower for civil disobedience along with Rep. Gutierrez and Rep. Espaillat.”
Douglas Rivlin, Gutiérrez’s communications director, confirmed that the congressman was arrested.
Photos taken at the scene and posted on social media show the Democrats, all of whom are Latino, sitting in the street.
The lawmakers were part of a group protesting the president’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that shields young illegal immigrants who entered the country as children from deportation.
- NBC claimed that Paul Manafort’s notes from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with White House aide Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer included the word “donations” near a reference to the Republican National Committee.
- Politico: Manafort’s notes “are not seen as damaging to the Trump family or campaign officials”
From Daily Caller:
NBC News dropped what the network hyped as a “potential bombshell” last week. “Manafort Notes From Russian Meet Contain Cryptic Reference to ‘Donations,’” the original headline read. The story claimed that Manafort’s notes from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with White House aide Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer included the word “donations” near a reference to the Republican National Committee.
NBC began walking back the “potential bombshell” almost immediately, issuing a correction the same day noting that the word “donation” didn’t actually appear in the notes, but quoting one source who said the word “donor” was in the notes.
But NBC’s corrected story still wasn’t accurate, according to a new Politico report, which said that the word “donor” didn’t appear in Manafort’s notes. Moreover, Manafort’s notes “are not seen as damaging to the Trump family or campaign officials,” Politico reported. The outlet cited several sources who have seen Manafort’s notes, while NBC relied on “two sources briefed on the evidence” to make its claim.
Even before Politico fully debunked NBC’s reporting, the network’s decision to publish the story came under fire. The day after NBC originally published the story, The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple criticized the story, which he said “provides only fodder for innuendo and conspiracy, not for sound conclusions about what happened.”
NBC News’ botched “bombshell” is just the latest anonymously sourced Trump-Russia story to fall apart.

- xenophobia – Americans don’t distrust foreigners, only the ones with long rap sheet of worldwide terrorism, jihad, violence, beheadings, killing of homosexuals, etc.
- racism – it’s not racism, it’s common sense!
- homophobia – LOL! homosexuality is punishable by death in Islam and Muslim countries have no qualms throwing gays off buildings, hanging them from cranes in public or just any kind of public execution.
Muslims playing the victim while refusing to condemn their own violence! Christians can’t even build churches in Muslim countries ( a sign of inferior, insecure religion ) and yet ungrateful Muslims in the land of infidels act like they are being oppressed.
ARSONIST ROGER FRALEY AT TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS ARRESTED, POLICE CLAIM NOT POLITICALLY MOTIVATED
A man accused of trying to set two fires inside the Trump International Hotel on Wednesday was not “politically motivated,” according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Roger Fraley, 28, was booked Thursday into the Clark County Detention Center. He is accused of leaving two toasters filled with towels and paper products in a women’s bathroom on the pool deck and on the 17th floor of the hotel in an attempt to start fires.
….Fraley’s Facebook page lists him as the CEO of Rojay Rabbit, a business that teaches customers “stealth social matrix hacking techniques” and encourages them to “see how far the rabbit hole goes.”
( RJ ) A man was taken into custody Wednesday night after arson investigators found devices set to start two separate fires to Trump International.
The suspected arsonist is facing charges of first-degree arson and burglary, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Steve Summers said.
The fires brought more than 45 Clark County Fire Department personnel, arson investigators and Metro detectives to the hotel bearing the president’s name.
Just after 5 p.m., the Fire Department was dispatched to the hotel at 2000 Fashion Show Drive, for reports of two separate fires at the same time. Arriving firefighters found one small fire in a women’s pool deck restroom and another in the hallway of the 17th floor, the Fire Department said.
The fire on the 17th floor was extinguished by hotel security personnel and was confined to two toasters and some towels. Firefighters extinguished the fire in the restroom. The pool deck fire was also confined to two toasters and “various combustible materials,” the Fire Department said.
By 6 p.m., the Fire Department confirmed both fires were out and smoke was being cleared.
Fire Department spokesman John Steinbeck said the multiple devices were placed intentionally to start the fires.
FELONY! OBAMA OFFICIAL SUSAN RICE ASKED FOR UNMASKING OF TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM DURING OBAMA TRUMP TOWER WIRETAPPING
Susan Rice, Obama’s national Security Adviser, asked for ‘unmasking’ of Donald Trump administration. Leaking it to the media is federal felony.
Rice request for unmasking of Trump transition team is part of Obama’s Trump Tower wiretapping story the liberal media ignore and call as nonsense. Unmasking is not a crime because unmasking names is normal process during intel gathering, but leaking it to the media and making it public – like what happened to General Mike Flynn- what makes it a crime. That is a federal felony.
NOTE: “Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering.
Mike Cernovich has more on the story at The Medium.
The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.
Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.
“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.

White House lawyers last month discovered that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”
The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this t
