One of two gay businessmen who hosted an event with GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is apologizing to the LGBT community for his “poor judgment.”

Ian Reisner, a hotelier whose properties have been subject to boycott calls since news of the meeting broke, wrote on Facebook that he made “a terrible mistake” by agreeing to host Cruz, who is adamantly opposed to gay marriage.

“I’ve spent the past 24 hours reviewing videos of Cruz’ statements on gay marriage and I am shocked and angry,” he wrote. “I sincerely apologize for hurting the gay community and so many of our friends, family, allies, customers and employees.”

The New York Times reported that the April 20 event in Manhattan was a “fireside chat” for about a dozen attendees and that no money was raised for the Republican’s presidential campaign.

Reisner, like Cruz, is a staunch supporter of Israel.

‘Law enforcement agencies should take appropriate precautions’

BY CHERYL CHUMLEY

Law enforcement authorities in Baltimore have been issued a dire warning: Watch out – gang members are coming for you.

“Law enforcement agencies should take appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of their officers,” the Baltimore Police Department said in a statement.

The threat comes on the heels of widespread protests and marches over the April 12 death of Freddie Gray, a black man who died from spinal injuries suffered during police custody. The police have since been placed under investigation.

But tensions in the city are hot.

Baltimore police reported 34 arrests from Saturday afternoon through to the early morning hours of Sunday and six police officers suffered minor injuries.

Police now say they’ve received what one media outlet described as “credible information” of gangs like the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods and Crips uniting to target and injure or kill members of the law-enforcement community.

The department’s emailed message read: “The Baltimore Police Department/Criminal Intelligence Unit has received credible information that members of various gangs including the Black Guerrilla Family, Bloods, and Crips have entered into a partnership to ‘take-out’ law enforcement officers. Further information will be sent through appropriate channels.”

Gray’s funeral was not explicitly mentioned in the announcement of the credible threat, but the threat was revealed minutes before the service was set to begin on Monday.

Church officials estimated that about 3,000 people were attending the funeral, including civil rights leader Jesse Jackson and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., reported ABC News.

“Freddie’s death is going to light a match – not of looting and burning, but of awesome change,” Bishop Walter Thomas said at the service.

“The protests around his death serves, in a sense, as a defibrillator to start the heartbeat of change in this city,” Thomas added.

The Odd Connection between Obamacare and Foodstamps

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 3.05.15 PM

BY MICHAEL MINKOFF

Ever since Obamacare has been implemented, food stamp usage has increased, seemingly disconnected from the “improving” economy:

In most affected states, the enrollment increases were not huge, ranging from 1 percent to 6 percent over two years, according to an Associated Press analysis. The sole exception was Nevada, where enrollment shot up 14 percent.

The enrollment is climbing as Republicans try to cut the costs of the food program and at a time when food-stamp usage would normally be expected to decline. Eligibility rules have not changed.

West Virginia’s food-stamp enrollment increased 4 percent after a Medicaid expansion that was part of the health care changes. Enrollment jumped because people were “more engaged with our systems and more aware what they’re eligible for,” said Jeremiah Samples of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

So Obamacare forces people to engage with the welfare system in at least one way, and some of those people are dipping into other welfare services while they’re there. Because why not?

Everyone knew Obamacare was going to be more expensive than anyone had predicted. But not even the most diehard opponent of Obamacare foresaw this. People would have said we were grasping at straws if we had predicted an up-tick in welfare enrollment correlated to Obamacare. Yet that is just what is happening.

So what’s the solution? The solution is obvious. Get the civil government out of the welfare business. They are really terrible at it. By that, I mean that they are really terrible at actually helping people. They are very adept at finding new ways to give “support” to people who would probably be better off without it in the long-term.

There probably isn’t a chance of abolishing Obamacare at this point. Everyone points to how well it’s working. No one seems to care that we can’t afford it. Well at least we’ll be able to eat some freshly minted food stamps when the economy collapses.

ALERT: 99% Of Americans On Holder’s ‘Gun Ban’ List Have 1 Thing in Common…

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 11.52.23 AM

BY DEAN JAMES

Dean James AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

I think all of you will agree, ERIC HOLDER IS A COMPLETE SCUMBAG! Brian Terry lost his life along with many others as a result of his failed FAST AND FURIOUS ‘program’ that was designed solely to take away American’s 2nd Amendment rights by means of fear mongering and deceit.

We get the idea that guns need to be kept out of the hands of dangerous criminal’s hands. But that is not what Obama and Holder and the rest of these gun grabbing commies are focused on.

They are focused on the average American. They are targeting Veterans as well.

Washington Times reports:

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee wants Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to explain why a Department of Justice gun ban list has a “mental defective” category consisting almost entirely of names belonging to military veterans and their dependents.

“It’s disturbing to think that the men and women who dedicated themselves to defending our freedom and values face undue threats to their fundamental Second Amendment rights from the very agency established to serve them,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, said in a statement Wednesday. “A veteran or dependent shouldn’t lose their constitutional rights because they need help with bookkeeping.”

Mr. Grassley outlined his concerns about the list to Mr. Holder in a letter dated this week. It included various failures by the Department of Justice – including the inconsistent application of standards and weak due process protections — that have led to the Department of Veterans Affairs adding “a disproportionate number of names” to the federal gun ban list.

All federal agencies are required to report names of individuals who are dangers to themselves or others to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s “mental defective” category — a status that prevents them from owning or possessing guns.

That means that veterans “are particularly singled out,” Mr. Grassley said. Those veterans should not be required by the Department of Veterans Affairs “to prove that they have the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” he said.

*ERIC HOLDER EMAILS ON FAST AND FURIOUS- “KISS MY A**!”*

Conservative Tribune adds:

How did the VA become responsible for regulating gun ownership? And why are our veterans, who were entrusted to use all kinds of weapons to protect our nation in war, deemed not responsible enough to own firearms on the home front to protect themselves and their families?

Just when we think Obama and Holder could not come up with more absurd decisions and policies, they raise the bar of ridiculousness a little higher.

Prevent our former military personnel from using guns? Unfortunately that’s not a joke. It’s just the Obama administration in action.

Mad World News has this:

We have Muslims returning from slaughtering unbelievers with the Islamic State in Syria, and they are welcomed back into the welfare system with open arms, yet the soldiers who’ve risked everything and sacrificed much return to find that the weapons they were worthy enough to fight with for our nation’s benefit, but not worthy enough to protect themselves and their own families.

Until we can forsake political correctness and fear of seeming intolerant in order to defend those who’ve defended our lives, we can never expect to keep those same Constitutional rights with which we look to them to protect.

We couldn’t agree more. This is completely outrageous and these liberal gun grabbing idiots need to go bitch about global warming, endangered trees or dolphins and stay the hell out of our business!

In 2003, the Durham city council enacted Resolution 9046, which forbids police officers from inquiring into a suspect’s immigration status, unless they are believed to have committed a “serious crime,” such as rape, murder, etc.

This policy has not only the full support of Mayor Bill Bell, but that of Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez as well.

One inevitable result of such a policy is an influx of foreign criminals. So, how much is it costing Durham County?

It should be noted that these were not necessarily all of the illegal aliens currently being detained in the Durham County Jail, as it often takes several weeks or months for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to issue a hold, after the detainee is reported by sheriff’s deputies. For instance, an ICE hold was not returned for 92 days for Jose Sanchez-Rios, after he was booked for drug trafficking.

Remember, these costs were incurred by only one county in North Carolina. There are 100 counties within the Tarheel state.

*As for the $100,000 man (Silvestre Alvarado Chaves), he was eventually put on trial, convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 16 and a half years in prison, with a projected release date in 2024. He is currently incarcerated at the Maury Correctional Institute in Greene County, NC.

It is obvious that illegal aliens are bankrupting cities and counties across the country, while liars such as our current president continue to speak of the “vast contributions” these invaders bring to our once sovereign nation.
