California Hires Eric Holder For Legal Fights Against Trump White House

 

How ironic that Eric Holder will be the attorney to defend California’s illegal “sanctuary cities” scheme. Some of the illegal aliens flooding California are fleeing from the same drug cartels who were armed by Eric Holder himself.

Via Washington Free Beacon:

Democratic leaders in the California Legislature announced Wednesday that they have hired Eric Holder, the former attorney general under President Obama, to represent them in legal battles with the Trump administration.

The Legislature now has Holder, currently a lawyer in Washington, D.C., on retainer to fight President-elect Donald Trump’s White House on issues such as immigration, the environment, and criminal justice, the New York Times reported.

“Having the former attorney general of the United States brings us a lot of firepower in order to prepare to safeguard the values of the people of California,” said Kevin de León, the Democratic leader of the state Senate, in an interview. “This means we are very, very serious.”

California’s state government is under almost complete Democratic control. The Democratic Party holds two-thirds of each legislative chamber and every statewide office. Legislative leaders in the state are expecting to battle the president-elect when he takes office.

“It was very clear that it wasn’t just campaign rhetoric,” León said of Trump’s policy proposals. “He was surrounding himself with people who are a very clear and present danger to the economic prosperity of California.”

Report: FBI Never Asked for Access To DNC Servers It Says Russia Hacked…

 

 

Hmmm…

WASHINGTON — The FBI did not examine the servers of the Democratic National Committee before issuing a report attributing the sweeping cyberintrusion to Russia-backed hackers, BuzzFeed News has learned.

Six months after the FBI first said it was investigating the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s computer network, the bureau has still not requested access to the hacked servers, a DNC spokesman said. No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system, one US intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.

“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” Eric Walker, the DNC’s deputy communications director, told BuzzFeed News in an email.

First Intensive Care Unit Opened For Men Suffering From Cold

With the exception of the picture of the doctor the other two funny picks were by Papa Mike and not the SOURCE of this article……Papa Mike

 

 There’s finally hope for the critically ill! The Münster University Hospital has set up an intensive care unit exclusively for the treatment of male patients suffering from coughs, colds, or even both. A specially trained team provides 24/7 care.


This “long overdue treatment site”, as Chief Physician Dr Klaus Schaffers, MD, calls it, will primarily serve men between the ages of 18 and 85. “It is well known, that this group are particularly severely affected by colds, and therefore need intensive care in order to save their lives.”

He knows what he’s talking about: Chief Physician Dr Schaffers, MD, himself narrowly escaped death from flu twice last winter.


The treatment of these victims of the cold starts as soon as they are on their way to intensive care: the afflicted patient is taken to hospital in an ambulance with an emergency doctor present, and provided with sufficient amounts of oxygen on the way. In the case of a blocked nose and sore throat, a specialist will have been requested in advance over the radio.
In the meantime, the patient’s relatives receive psychological support. If the patient’s fever rises above the dangerous level of 99.86 °F (37.7 °C), a hospital priest may be summoned if desired.


“Should our patients actually recover from the flu, of course we also offer a twelve-week rehabilitation programme”, says Schaffers.
To date, there has been no satisfactory explanation as to why men in particular suffer so frequently from life-threatening colds. First examination results concerning this are expected from the intra-hospital research group in about 17 weeks’ time, as soon as team leader Kai Triemitz has been cured of his cold.

Judge Rules Requiring More Parking For New Jersey Mosque Is Unconstitutional

 

NEWARK, N.J. – An upscale New Jersey town violated anti-discrimination laws by insisting that a proposed mosque have more parking spaces than churches or synagogues because of its unique worship times and traditions, a federal judge has ruled.


The ruling issued Saturday by U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp stated that Bernards Township violated the Religious Land Use and Institutional Persons Act by applying a different standard to Muslims.

Shipp found the township’s planning board had “unbridled and unconstitutional discretion” because of its vague parking requirements.

The Islamic Society’s application to build the mosque was denied after more than three years and 39 public hearings. The group sued the township in March.

The Islamic Society’s attorney, Adeel Mangi, had argued that parking requirements were the tool municipalities used to thwart construction of mosques.

“This truly is a landmark ruling with national impact,” Mangi told NJ.com.

Bernards Mayor Carol Bianchi issued a statement criticizing the judge’s ruling. The town had argued that it was completely appropriate to insist a mosque provide more off-street parking than a comparably sized church or synagogue because of its unique worship times and traditions.

“The Township vehemently disagrees with the court’s decision and awaits a full analysis of the 57-page decision by its attorneys, who only learned of the decision on New Year’s Day,” the statement said. “The Township will consider how to best move forward including appealing the decision when ripe for appeal.”

The mosque has said its peak worship time was likely Friday afternoon prayers. Township planners determined that because congregants would most likely be arriving straight from work, every worshipper would require a parking space.

Shipp, though, noted that the township had not conducted individual assessments of worship habits when churches or synagogues came before its boards. By its own admission, the town applied a different standard to Muslims, he wrote.
