TO ENLARGE CLICK ON THE PICTURE…..
When Capt. Tia Morris turned 50, after about three decades in the Los Angeles Police Department, she became eligible to retire with nearly 90% of her salary.
But like many cops and firefighters in her position, the decision to keep working was a financial no-brainer, thanks to a program that allowed her to nearly double her pay by keeping her salary while also collecting her pension.
The House voted on Monday along party lines to share the explosive memo with the American public.
This comes after the approval of President Donald Trump.
FOX legal analyst Gregg Jarrett went on Lou Dobbs Tonight this evening to discuss this explosive evidence of government and deep state corruption at the Department of Justice and FBI.
Gregg Jarrett says the main players in this scandal who lied to the FISA Court could face 10 years in prison.
Gregg Jarrett: Two different crimes committed there. One was perjury the other is abuse of power… Now we know they knew the dossier wasn’t authentic and reliable. They knew it came from Democratic money. They knew it was likely fabricated. And they knew they couldn’t get a FISA warrant without it… The other is abuse of power – ten years behind bars upon conviction.
Republican lawmaker Louie Gohmert said Comey, McCabe and Ohr should be in prison.

The money actually was promised to the protesting players’ organization, taken from money the NFL had allocated for breast cancer and veterans’ programs.
Via Fox News Insider:
Former NFL running back Herschel Walker accused the NFL of essentially giving out “hush money” to stop players from kneeling for the national anthem.
The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner highlighted the fact that the NFL in late November offered $100 million to social justice organizations favored by players.
The move was widely viewed as an attempt by the league to end the controversy surrounding the anthem protests.
“The league gave the players a large sum of money toward their cause. That’s hush money,” he said, adding that players never should have been kneeling in the first place.
She did it again!
Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi called President Trump “President Bush” at least five times in 2017.
She did it again today.
Minority Leader Pelosi got confused and mixed up on Thursday when speaking to reporters on the pending release of the House Intelligence FISA memo.
Pelosi stuttered and once again called President Trump “Bush” to a gaggle of reporters.

Full-blown fruit loop.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) demanded on Thursday that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) remove Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, saying that he “disgraced” the committee with his actions.
Pelosi’s letter came one day after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) accused Nunes of “secretly altering” the memo after the committee voted to release it and claimed it had “profound distortions and inaccuracies” — despite conflicting reports from senior FBI officials that they “could not point to any factual inaccuracies.” Pelosi wrote:
Chairman Nunes’ deliberately dishonest actions make him unfit to serve as Chairman, and he must be immediately removed from this position. … House Republicans’ pattern of obstruction and cover-up to hide the truth about the Trump-Russia scandal represents a threat to our intelligence and our national security. … It is long overdue that you, as Speaker, put an end to this charade and hold Chairman Nunes and all Congressional Republicans accountable to the oath they have taken to support and defend the Constitution, and protect the American people.
Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner, indicated on Wednesday that the changes made to the memo were requested by the Democrats and the FBI.
Some of the poorest people in the city spend their days in the shadow of Los Angeles City Hall, napping on flattened cardboard boxes.
On any given day, as many as 20 people take to the City Hall lawn, across the street from LAPD headquarters. They’re there to “escape the madness” in downtown streets, a 53-year-old homeless man named Lazarus said last week. At night, they fan out to doorways or deserted plazas to wait for daybreak.
The growth of a homeless day camp at the halls of civic power speaks to the breadth of Los Angeles’ burgeoning homelessness problem.
The number of those living in the streets and shelters of the city of L.A. and most of the county surged 75% — to roughly 55,000 from about 32,000 — in the last six years. (Including Glendale, Pasadena and Long Beach, which conduct their own homeless counts, the total is nearly 58,000.)
Increase in unsheltered homeless
Three out of four homeless people — 41,000 — live in cars, campers, tents and lean-tos, by far the biggest single group of unsheltered people in any U.S. city. If you took out Los Angeles, national homelessness would have dropped last year for the first time since the recession.
People left behind by the economic recovery can’t compete with young professionals who have bid rents up to record levels.
In another era, they might have found refuge in crumbling hotels and tenements. But many of those buildings were lost in the city’s post-recession spree of building, evictions and renovations.
The problem has only gotten worse since Mayor Eric Garcetti took office in 2013 and a liberal Democratic supermajority emerged in 2016 on the county Board of Supervisors.
Tent cities stretch from the Antelope Valley desert to the Santa Monica coast, with stopovers in unlikely communities — even Bel-Air, where a homeless cooking fire was implicated in December’s Skirball fire.
During an October hygiene survey, county public health officials identified 222 encampments, including 50 with 30 or more people living in them. These ragtag outposts have altered the basic terms of urban life.
People in Koreatown step outside their fancy condos to find tents, rotting food and human feces at their doorsteps. Buses and trains have become de facto shelters, and thousands of people sleep in fear and degradation.
Officials and philanthropic groups have been housing more homeless people than ever before — 26,000 between 2014 and 2017. But L.A. has a severe housing shortage, and city and county homeless programs have been slow to start and too limited to absorb the waves of people forced into the streets.
Officials are hoping reinforcements will breathe new life into the effort to end homelessness. Over the last 16 months, voters have agreed to tax themselves $4.6 billion to build housing — 10,000 units in 10 years — and provide supportive services for homeless people. A long-delayed developer fee that’s expected to pump out $100 million annually for affordable housing was finally adopted, although some observers wonder whether it comes too late to capitalize on the building boom.
The county money started flowing in October; officials have quadrupled homeless outreach teams, added 600 shelter beds, expanded winter shelter hours and ramped up hotel vouchers. Some 1,000 new employees are being hired at every level of homeless services, including support for people in the new housing projects.
“The reason I’m optimistic … are the unprecedented resources,” said Garcetti, who has been criticized for moving too slowly. “You’ve got to make sure you’re not just pushing the problem from place to place.”
“To project nearly $5 billion in revenue over the next decade shows substantial resolve and an undeniable commitment,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. “The people of this region and their leaders [have] relocated their moral compass.”
But the crisis has been decades in the making. If homelessness continues to escalate at current rates, it will swamp even the best efforts.
“We are moving more homeless families and adults into housing,” said Phil Ansell, director of the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative. “What we have less control over is the inflow: people who simply are unable to pay the rent.”

What can brown do for you?
Via SD Union Tribune:
A traffic stop on what appeared to be a brown UPS truck in Boulevard on Monday evening revealed 77 unauthorized immigrants stuffed shoulder-to-shoulder inside its hot cargo area.
Five children were found traveling among the overheated group of Mexican nationals, who admitted to being in the U.S. illegally, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in San Diego federal court.
A California Highway Patrol officer pulled the truck over before 5 p.m. because the vehicle had no tags and was weaving on Old Highway 80, about a mile west of Tierra Del Sol Road.
A U.S. Border Patrol agent patrolling the area in an unmarked car passed by the vehicle stop and asked the officer if he’d like assistance.
When the agent approached the truck, he observed it was riding “extremely low” and had what appeared to be fresh paint on the rear. He could also smell body odor and what was described as the pungent smell of a soap commonly used in Mexico.
The truck’s driver, a U.S. citizen who had been placed in the CHP car, said the truck was his and gave permission to search.
When the agent opened the rear doors, he found dozens of people standing inside, sweating excessively, the complaint states.
In an interview with authorities, the driver, Shawn Lee Seiler, admitted to being a human smuggler who was expecting to transport 50 people that evening, the complaint says. He said he was surprised to learn there were 77 inside.
He told investigators he was to be paid $100 for each unauthorized immigrant he transported.
President Trump invited Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas to his State of the Union Address. They are the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas, who had been close friends since elementary school, but in September 2016, the two girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13.
On Tuesday night when the President honored the parents of Kayla and Nisa and the victims of illegal immigrant violence the Democrats groaned and booed.
This was a shocking display – even for today’s Democrats.

Jim Caviezel, who stunned the world with his portrayal of Jesus in the 2004 blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ,” is now confirming he’s on board with director Mel Gibson for a sequel, and predicts it will be “the biggest film in history.”
“There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” the 49-year-old actor told USA Today. “It’s great. Stay tuned.”
Both Gibson and Caviezel have not said much about the story focusing on the resurrection of Christ, but the star indicated he’s encouraged by the direction the project is taking.
“I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel said of Gibson. “But I’ll tell you this much, the film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”
