Oh noes: Harry and Meghan don’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office

From Page Six: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be coming to America — but not until President Trump is out of office, a report said Sunday.

After their Megxit deal gets hashed out, the Daily Mail reported that the couple plan on living in Canada and eventually find a home and business in Los Angeles.

“It’s by no means an immediate thing but there is a long-term plan to end up back in the US with a second home in Canada, where they will also spend a great deal of time,” the source said.

But Markle, 38, has said she won’t move back while Trump is president, according to the Mail, citing her friends.

Ahead of the 2016 election, and before she married 35-year-old Harry, the former actress blasted Trump as divisive and misogynist on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.”

She said at the time that she was considering remaining in Toronto, where she filmed the USA Network’s “Suits,” if Trump won.

During Trump’s state visit to the UK in June, he was asked about Markle’s comments and lashed back that “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”

He later clarified he meant the comments were nasty.

Neither Markle — who was on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s son Archie — or Harry made an appearance at the state banquet at Buckingham Palace during the visit. Harry did, however, attend a royal luncheon with Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Man arrested over knife murder of ‘Britain’s worst paedophile’ Richard Huckle who was stabbed with makeshift blade in prison cell

I’ve got no picture for this post. Didn’t want to show a picture of the monster and nothing else felt right. So, here’s the story:

From Daily Mail: A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering one of Britain’s worst paedophiles.

Richard Huckle died at HMP Full Sutton in Yorkshire on October 13 last year, reportedly fatally stabbed in his cell with a makeshift blade. On Monday Humberside police said officers had arrested a 29-year-old man and had passed a file to prosecutors for consideration.

Police would not comment as to whether the man arrested was a fellow prisoner.

They issued a short statement that said: ‘A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man at HMP Full Sutton on October 13 2019. ‘A file has been submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and we are awaiting their decision regarding charges.’

Huckle was given 22 life sentences at the Old Bailey in 2016 for an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years.

The freelance photographer, from Ashford in Kent, awarded himself ‘Pedopoints’ for different acts of abuse against 191 youngsters, and sold images of his depravity on the dark web.

In online posts, Huckle bragged that it was easier to target impoverished children in Malaysia, than those from wealthy Western backgrounds.

He was arrested when he was stopped at Gatwick Airport en route to spend Christmas with his family in 2014, after Australian authorities tipped off the UK’s National Crime Agency.

At the time of his arrest, he was writing a guide to teach fellow paedophiles how to abuse children and avoid detection.

Officers seized his encrypted laptop and managed to uncover more than 20,000 indecent pictures and videos although there were other files they were unable to crack.

President Trump signs anti-robocall law

The Hill reports that on Dec. 30, 2019, President Trump signed into law the Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act, a bill aimed at reducing the scourge of robocalls that plague  millions of Americans every year.

The bill was a rare bipartisan and bicameral feat for this Congress, where Democrats have chosen to spend their time, energy, and millions of taxpayer dollars on the baseless and fruitless “investigations” of President Trump, from the so-called Russian collusion to the present impeachment witchhunt.

In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Trump was “proud” to sign the TRACED Act, and that “This historic legislation will provide American consumers with even greater protection against annoying unsolicited robocalls. American families deserve control over their communications, and this legislation will update our laws and regulations to stiffen penalties, increase transparency, and enhance government collaboration to stop unwanted solicitation.”

Over the past several years, illegal robocalls have spiked enormously in the U.S. as scammers find new and cheap ways to dial up consumers en masse as they pry for sensitive personal information. The scammers, oftentimes located outside of the country, frequently target vulnerable populations as they ask for social security numbers, credit card information and more.

Although robocalls won’t disappear entirely, experts say we can expect to see a reduction in the billions of spam calls within six months because the TRACED Act will put the onus on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and phone companies to:

  • Require phone companies to block illegal robocalls without charging customers any extra money.
  • Require most carriers in the U.S. to ensure that calls are coming from real numbers.
  • Give government regulators more time to find scammers and penalize them more aggressively, increasing fines to $10,000 for illegal robocalling operations.

HuffPo offers a squirrel: Two racist members of National Guard outed by Atlanta Antifa

The US economy under President Trump (yes, he’s STILL our president) is booming. Witness these recent headlines:

“Super Saturday sales the latest sign Trump’s economy is unstoppable
“CNN Poll: US economy receives its best ranking in nearly 20 years
“Record online sales give holiday shopping season a boost
Amazon Customers Set Holiday Shopping Records
“U.S. stocks climb again in Santa Claus rally as all three main indexes close at records

For kicks I ventured over to HuffPo last night and what is their top headline?

Nat Guard ousts two for White Supremacy.”

According to the HuffPo article, “Two men have been kicked out of the Army National Guard after liberal activists uncovered their membership in a religious group with white supremacist ties.”

The “liberal activists” who uncovered these two men? The Atlanta Antifacists group who published a report saying the National Guard members were leaders of the Norse pagan group Ravensblood Kindred. The group is part of the Asatru Folk Assembly, which researchers say endorses white supremacy. (No links for either White Supremacist group provided in HuffPo’s article and I chose not to do a search for them.)

The National Guard has approximately over 450,000 members and all HuffPo can scream about is two members being outed as (supposedly) White Supremacists by an Antifa group?

Despite the recent, great economic news under President Trump, there was NOT ONE HEADLINE at HuffPo last night about the robust holiday shopping or stock market record news on their front page.

Gee, I wonder why…

Nasdaq closes above 9,000 for first time as rally rolls on

From MSN: Stocks ended higher Thursday, hitting record highs as the market rallied into the end of 2019.

The Dow closed 105 points higher, while the S&P 500 climbed 0.5%. The Nasdaq finished about 9,000 for the first time, rising nearly 0.8% to 9,022.

The three major averages all hit new all-time highs. Amazon led the gains, jumping more than 4% after the e-commerce giant said the holiday shopping season broke all records. Trading volumes remained thin this week.

Stocks have been piling up records as the market wraps up 2019. The S&P 500 has risen 3% this month and 8.6% this quarter, bringing the year-to-date gains to 29%. The benchmark has a good chance at scoring a historic year: It is now less than 1 percentage point from posting the best annual performance since 1997.

“Stocks look like they just wont quit. The rally is for real,” Chris Rupkey, a chief financial economist at MUFG, said in a note. “The economy’s engines continue to hum.”

U.S. weekly jobless claims decreased 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 222,000 for the week ended Dec. 21, the Labor Department said Thursday. The number is slightly higher than estimates of 220,000 in a Dow Jones poll of economists.

Markets in Europe, Australia and Hong Kong remained closed Thursday for the holiday. Trading volumes were muted in the U.S. with the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) trading about 23.5 million shares Thursday, well below its 30-day volume average of 60 million shares.

In a shortened Christmas Eve session Tuesday, the S&P 500 finished flat and the Nasdaq rose to another record. The tech-heavy index also posted its ninth consecutive record close for the first time since 1998.

Progressives hate to admit it: “Trump is remaking the federal judiciary”

Merry Christmas Eve!

The most read article on SF Gate late Sunday evening was the story with the above headline. Excerpts from their story:

“After three years in office, President Donald Trump has remade the federal judiciary, ensuring a conservative tilt for decades and cementing his legacy no matter the outcome of November’s election. Trump nominees make up 1 in 4 U.S. circuit court judges. Two of his picks sit on the Supreme Court.

And this past week, as the House voted to impeach the president, the Republican-led Senate confirmed another 13 district court judges.

In total, Trump has installed 187 judges to the federal bench.

Trump’s mark on the judiciary is already having far-reaching effects on legislation and liberal priorities. Just last week, the 5th Circuit struck down a core provision of the Affordable Care Act. One of the two appellate judges who ruled against the landmark law was a Trump appointee.”

Read the whole article here.

The story had almost 550 comments at the time (a VERY large amount for a SF Gate article) and most of them were in favor of President Trump.

I read the SF Gate almost every day and have NEVER seen that many comments in support of President Trump. Sure, I expect some trolls on a web site yet this was highly unusual for a SF Gate story.

It is highly unlikely that President Trump has converted the masses in San Francisco. Yet I thought it was very interesting to see that much support of President Trump on the SF Gate.

Whatever the case, President Trump’s judicial appointments are very good news!
