That British family of border jumpers was denied visa, had $16k in trunk & deliberately crossed border barrier

We’re still not sure what the entire story is, but the Connors are clearly more than they first appeared. For starters, they didn’t “accidentally take a wrong turn.” They were caught on video intentionally driving across a grassy strip between two roads, one on the Canadian side and one in the U.S. And things only got stranger from there. (WaPo)…

Also, taking them to detention was not CBP’s first attempted solution. They initially tried to return them to Canada where they presumably belonged. (In fact, that what the Connors requested.) But the Canadians wouldn’t allow them back in the country….

Next, CPB tried to contact the British embassy to see about sending them home. Their call was not returned.

Dems Decimated in Louisiana: GOP Gains Senate Super majority, Dem Governor Now on the Ropes

In Louisiana’s Saturday election, Republicans had a lot to cheer about.  Among statewide office-holders, the incumbent GOP Lieutenant Governor (68 percent), Attorney General (66 percent), Treasurer (60 percent, and Agricultural Commissioner (58 percent) were all re-elected without the need for a run-off, under the state’s ‘jungle primary’-style system.  It also appears that the solid Republican majorities in both state legislative chambers will remain intact — with the GOP expanding its Senate advantage into super-majority territory by picking up a pair of Democratic seats:

How fake is fake news? Kentucky Military Drill Video Used As Turkey/Syrian Invasion

 

https://youtu.be/12ikTKazYcI

On Sunday, ABC News anchor Tom Llamas also aired the allegedly shocking footage, claiming it showed a fierce Turkish attack on Kurdish civilians.

It’s really from the Knob Creek Gun Range’s biannual 2017 exercise.

Tom Llamas has a history of fake news. Did he know or is a a useful idiot?

Three years and $1.2 billion later, Los Angeles has built ZERO homes for the homeless | Voters Don’t Count in CA

Strong bipartisan support that included 77% of the voting population in Los Angeles offered hope for the homeless population in Los Angeles. That was three years ago. Today, following an audit of Proposition HHH spending and progress, it has been revealed the city has completed zero homes intended to help 10,000 of the 34,000 known homeless people in the California city.

The $1.2 billion bond was supposed to pay for 10,000 housing units spread across 114 projects. The units were supposed to cost between $350,000-$414,000. But with a median cost now over $531,000, including over 1000 units that will cost over $600,000, the 10,000 unit goal has been reduced by 24%.

Even with the lower expectations based on higher costs, movement is slow. Of the 114 projects earmarked, only 19 have begun.

CA gas taxes, prices keep rising as Newsom changes money use

Gov. Gavin Newsom in late September signed an executive order that lets him redirect transportation funds to programs addressing climate change. The more than $5 billion in annual transportation spending now going toward construction, operations and maintenance of roadways will instead be prioritized toward reducing congestion via “innovative strategies designed to encourage people to shift from cars to other modes of transportation.” Those modes include mass transit, walking and biking, the governor’s executive order said.
