Accuses Trump of ‘creating’ illegal immigrants

In an argument that would be more fitting in a hipster coffee house, socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced that she ‘doesn’t care’ whether migrants coming to the US are undocumented, and that President Trump is “creating” populations of illegal immigrants.

City Fines Landlord $2 Million Because They Offered Homeless & Disabled Veterans Cheap Rent

Dozens of poor and disabled veterans could soon be homeless thanks to a city’s red tape war declaring their homes unfit because they don’t have the proper paperwork.

San Francisco, CA — In the land of the free, government and law enforcement not only wage war on the poor and homeless through various unscrupulous means designed to extract revenue and attack the right to exist but those who try to help the homeless—by feeding, clothing, or sheltering them—also face the wrath of the state. As the following case illustrates, even those who’ve laid down their lives for the state—veterans—and the ones who help them are now being targeted.

Judy Wu, a landlord in San Francisco has converted 12 properties she owns into 49 housing units over the last decade which she and her husband, Trent Zhu, rent to homeless, low-income and disabled veterans.

Because they’ve split the units into much smaller ones, the couple is able to provide these veterans with very cheap housing. The contribution to society hasn’t gone unnoticed by the city, however, who couldn’t care less about the dozens of previously homeless veterans now off the streets thanks to the couple.

According to Reason, Wu’s problems stem from a zoning law as the couple’s property was only zoned for 15 dwellings.

And in 2015, the city’s Planning Department first became aware of the excess units, ordering her to obtain permits to dismantle many of them. In 2016, as she was working to bring her units into compliance, and while her tenants fought to preserve their homes, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera sued Wu, claiming that her unauthorized dwellings “substantially endanger the health, welfare, and safety of individual tenants, the residents of the City and County of San Francisco.”

In reality, however, Wu’s tenants love the affordable shelter provided to them through her setup. And, to illustrate just how vacuous and dishonest Herrera’s claim of worrying about the “health, welfare, and safety” of the tenants is, this move by the government could leave dozens of poor and disabled veterans on the streets.

Sadly, however, it appears that the state has won. Wu fought the lawsuit in a trial this week and was facing upwards of $8 million in fines for providing cheap rent to veterans. On Tuesday, she settled with the city.

“The basic reason for settling is it’s too expensive to fight city hall,” said Ryan Patterson, an attorney that represented Wu, according to Reason. “This will allow the owners to move forward and focus on legalizing these properties and working to ensure that as many of these veterans as possible can remain in their homes.”

According to Reason, the city’s lawsuit notably came before the administrative process that would allow Wu to maintain her current units had run its course, and yesterday’s settlement does nothing to settle their legal status.

Since the ordeal began, Herrera and his pack of bureaucratic dogooders have painted Wu and her husband as slumlords exploiting the poor.

“Defendants’ motive for flagrantly violating the law is simple: profit,” reads the city’s 2016 complaint against Wu. “They rent out units to the most vulnerable members of our communities…as such, they have a guaranteed stream of income.”

However, her tenants—who actually live in these homes—disagree and describe a far different scenario.

“Judy Wu is offering veterans housed in these units a chance to rebuild their lives in a way that is respectful and humane to them,” says Fred Bryant, a 79-year-old disabled veteran, and tenant of Wu’s for the past four years, according to Reason.

“Whenever I needed help of any kind in the apartment, checking the smoke alarm or something,” Bryant says, “Judy Wu has been extremely responsive.”

Looking at the situation objectively—and not through the eyes of the state—we see a couple using their property to provide affordable housing to those in need. Their tenants are there voluntarily and love it. The only people upset about this scenario have nothing to do with the property nor the people living on it—yet they are hell-bent on ruining the mutually beneficial arrangement because of some building code.

The most infuriating part about these zoning standards is that Wu’s homes have met the federal inspectors’ biannual inspections over and over, according to Patterson. Bryant agrees, and according to Reason, he described both his unit and those of the other veterans Wu rents too as nice, remodeled units “with all the amenities of a well-outfitted apartment.”

“There are a lot of homeless veterans that Judy Wu helped. She’s a good landlord as far as I’m concerned,” John Brown Jr., another tenant of Wu’s told The San Francisco Examiner in July of last year.

Facebook Just Deleted a Page that Helped Suicidal Veterans Cope With Combat Stress

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:

A Facebook page that helped suicidal veterans battle PTSD has been permanently deleted with no explanation.

The owners of a Facebook page dedicated to helping suicidal veterans cope with combat stress claim that their page was mysteriously deleted by Facebook with no explanation. The closure is one of the latest from the company, which has been heavily criticized as of late for running a censorship campaign targeting alternative news media outlets (among others) all in a self-professed effort to combat “fake news.”

The page was called “Fill Your Boots UK” (FYB UK) and was created to help veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. Until it was shut down, FYB UK offered a daily “Cry for Help” in which desperate soldiers could reach out for help, many of whom were suicidal. Critics of Facebook’s decision to shut down FYB UK now say those same people will likely go on to commit suicide. Facebook claims the page violated its “community guidelines” but will not elaborate.

IT’S REALLY HAPPENING: NANCY PELOSI THREATENS GUN CONFISCATION AMID NATIONAL EMERGENCY

from InfoWars:

In a stunning admission of the left’s draconian plans for America, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned that a Democrat president will declare a national emergency to confiscate firearms because President Trump somehow set a precedent declaring a national emergency to secure the U.S. southern border.

“The precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans,” she warned Thursday at a press conference.

“..If the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency, an illusion that he wants to convey, just think of what a president with different values can present to the American people.”

Senate Hearing: Facebook CEO Zuckerberg Is Questioned on Ties to CIA-Funded Company

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

As Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg fingered his cheat sheet of canned answers to a barrage of questions from Senators yesterday on how Facebook had allowed a Trump-backed political operation to harvest personal data from 87 million of its users, Zuckerberg attempted to channel motherhood, apple pie, dorm room entrepreneurism and an altruistic desire to connect people around the world in one harmonious melding of human spirit.

Unfortunately, the facts just kept getting in the way. There was the questioning from Senator Richard Blumenthal pointing out that Facebook had been caught red-handed in 2011 by the Federal Trade Commission in egregious abuses of its users’ personal data. Blumenthal said current activities at Facebook showed that Facebook was in “violation of the FTC consent decree.”
