Brothers Sentenced In $1.4M Welfare-For-Cash Scheme At Maine Halal Market

 

Start the denaturalization process ASAP……Plus EVERY market or Deli in the U.S. Deli like the one below should be investigated IMMEDIATELY!!…..Papa Mike

 

Via BDN:

The owner of a Portland halal market ( Halal is Arabic for permissible. Halal food is that which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Koran …Papa Mike ) who, with his brother, traded $1.4 million in federal food benefits for cash was sentenced Monday afternoon in U.S. District Court to three years in prison.

The federal prosecutor called the case “one of the largest, if not the largest, fraud cases involving [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] benefits in [Maine].”

Ali Ratib Daham, 41, of Westbrook, who originally owned Ahram Halal Market, 630 Forest Ave., pleaded guilty in November to one count each of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government, money laundering and theft of government funds.

A halal market under different ownership still operates at that address.

Daham remains free on bail until July 18, when he must report to a prison assigned by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

His brother, Abdulkareem Daham, 23, was sentenced Monday morning to two years in prison. He was convicted after a three-day jury trial in January of conspiracy to defraud the United States, according to court documents.

The older brother was ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution, while the younger was ordered to pay up to $955,000, according to their attorneys. The restitution order states that the men are equally responsible for payments but the younger brother’s payments are capped.

Ali Daham already has paid $80,000 toward restitution, according to court documents.

In addition to prison time, both men were sentenced to three years of supervised release.

In sentencing the older brother, U.S. District Court D. Brock Hornby, who himself is a naturalized citizen, said there were “no winners in a case like this.”

“By sentencing two brothers, I realize I’m creating great pain for this family,” he said. “I’m also creating great pain for the immigrant community, as many members have told me he was a great helper to them. Sadly, he was a helper to them by defrauding the government.”

Teen On Alaska Airlines Flight Helps Blind And Deaf Passenger Traveling Alone

 

Via Fox News:

A 15-year-old girl is being praised for her hands-on approach to helping a blind and deaf passenger traveling alone on an Alaska Airlines flight last week.

Clara Daly and her mom, Jane, were traveling home from Boston, Mass., to Los Angeles when their flight was canceled. They were rebooked on another flight, where the pair encountered Tim Cook, a blind and deaf man traveling home to Portland, Ore.

Cook had been visiting his sister in Boston.

“I observed a woman signing into a man’s hand, so he could feel her words,” said Lynette Scribner, another Alaska Airlines passenger. “After watching them for a few minutes, I realized the man was both deaf and blind.”

Scribner said once Cook boarded the flight, other passengers tried their best to make his journey more comfortable — including a man who let Cook have his aisle seat.

“The man, who had given up his seat, did his best to assist with things like opening coffee creamer and pouring it in his coffee,” Scribner said.

However, the flight attendants needed someone who could communicate with Cook during the flight.

Hah! Hacker Changes Menu of Little Liberal ‘Red Hen’ Restaurant that Tossed Out Sarah Sanders and Her Children…

 

DIMocrats ARE NOT SMART ENOUGH TO CHANGE IT BACK BECAUSE THEIR TOOOOO DUMB TO KNOW HOW…….PAPA MIKE

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family were kicked out of a rural Virginia restaurant Friday night.

Sanders and her family were booted out of the little liberal Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because they are Trump supporters.

Sarah Sanders tweeted about the intolerant establishment:

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

Former Governor Mike Huckabee tweeted out that “bigotry was on the menu” at the little liberal Red Hen.

That’s not all that’s on the restaurant menu.

A hacker changed the menu to include erectile disfuntion.

Customs And Border Protection Reunited 522 Illegal Alien Children With Families

 

What will the left hang their hats on now?

Via Daily Caller:

Customs and Border Protection has reunited 522 illegal immigrant children with their families who were separated as a result of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, according to a Department of Homeland Security statement released Saturday.

“CBP has reunited 522 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) in their custody who were separated from adults as part of the Zero Tolerance initiative,” the press release said. “The reunions of an additional 16 UAC who were scheduled to be reunited on June 22, 2018 were delayed due to weather affecting travel and we expect they will all be reunited with their parents within the next 24 hours.”

The press release said some families were transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody together due to “the speed in which adults completed their criminal proceedings.” The report did not say how many families were currently together in ICE custody.

Mexican Prez Candidate Calls For Mass Exodus To U.S.

 

A Mexican presidential candidate has called upon his fellow countryman to flood the United States with a mass exodus, calling it a “human right.”

According to a report from Eluniversal, candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) said the people should flee Mexico to find a life in the United States, which is a pretty dismal message coming from a presidential candidate. The equivalent would be President Trump telling Americans to flee for Canada.

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said on Tuesday while calling on people to “leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

This fleeing to the United States would be “a human right we will defend.”

The election stands less than two weeks away and Obrador is currently the frontrunner. He has run on a ticket opposing President Trump’s policies toward Mexico. From the New York Times:

After 18 years of trying, and trying again, Mr. López Obrador, widely known as AMLO, may have a historic opportunity. He has said that his presidency will signal the start of Mexico’s fourth revolution, following independence from Spain in the early 19th century, the liberal reforms later that century, and the Mexican Revolution in the early 20th century.

He promises an austere, nationalist government that will fight corruption and inequality. He has said he will push constitutional amendments to change Mexico’s energy policy, eliminate immunity for government employees and allow for mechanisms of direct democracy, such as presidential referendums. He has repeatedly compared himself to Mexican leaders like Benito Juárez, Francisco Madero and Lázaro Cárdenas, which is like an American candidate comparing himself to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

MUST WATCH: Border Patrol Agent Sets The Record Straight On CNN, Embarrasses Host

 

Rather than address all he said in his devastating firsthand account of the grim realities of policies encouraging parents to send children to cross into the country illegally, Baldwin returned to her original question. “America is outraged,” she said. “Can you assure everyone watching that you and your border patrol colleagues are treating these children humanely?”

“I can tell you with absolute certainty they’re being treated humanely,” he replied. “Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys, and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in. Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”

 

On Wednesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin had on border patrol agent and National Border Patrol Council spokesman Chris Cabrera, with Baldwin seemingly looking to smear and shame the men and women who police our border. Cabrera, though, took the opportunity to hit Baldwin with the reality of the situation at the Southern border, exposing the false and shallow liberal framing of the issue from the mainstream media, including CNN.

Baldwin started the segment by playing alleged audio of border patrol agents joking about the children in their custody. Cabrera suggested the agents, who see incredibly tragic situations on a daily basis, might have been making light of the rough situation, but noted that he had not heard the audio before the interview.

“I don’t think everybody understands what’s happening down here. You know, a lot of these kids that are coming here, and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents; they are brought over in extremely dangerous conditions, in extremely dangerous terrain, and all this can be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated. Why they don’t do this is beyond me,” explained Cabrera, adding, “As we all know, when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family.”

Jennifer Lopez Spreads Hoax Photos On Border Situation

 

Here’s the thing. Unless Jennifer Lopez is thinking of breaking the law, putting her childs fate in the hands of smugglers and leaving her other children behind in the process, she has nothing in common with this irresponsible mother. But she is irresponsible in spreading these false pictures.

Via Daily Wire:

Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez joined in the chorus of emotional outrage over the border crisis by sharing two hoax photographs.

Starting on her Instagram account, Jennifer Lopez shared the infamous photo of the crying Honduran girl, the same one that Time magazine used on its cover to portray President Trump as a heartless ogre. The powerful photo, one that has pulled people’s heartstrings to the point of generating $18 million for a Facebook fundraiser, has since been outed as a fake, not in authenticity but in context.

Pork On Your Fork….



 
Well Said Mayor Dorval, Quebec mayor. 

 
“PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK” 

 
A commercial promoting pork says: 

 
“PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK” The MAYOR REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CAFETERIA MENU AND EXPLAINS WHY: 

 
Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb. 

 
The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why. 

 
“Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that’s where they chose to immigrate. 

 
“Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. “They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who, so generously, welcomed them. 

 
“Muslims must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic. Canada accepted many immigrants before Muslims showed up (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants).” 

 
“Just like other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity or their culture. 

 
“And, if Canada is a land of welcome, it’s not the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole. 

 
“Finally, they must understand that in Canada ( Quebec ) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain.” 

 
The municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia. 

 
“For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Sharia. 

 
“If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than 
elsewhere. We will not let you drag Canada down to the level of those 57 countries. 

 
“Ask yourself this question – just once: “Why is it better here in Canada than where you came from?” 
“A canteen with pork on the menu is part of the answer.” 

 
If you came to Canada with the idea that you will displace us with your prolific propagation and eventually take over the country, you should pack up and go back to the country you came from.  We have no room here for you and your ideology. 

 
If you feel the same, forward it on.  If not, hit the delete, and prepare to be displaced.

UPS and Teamsters Reach Handshake Agreement

 

On June 22, 2018, UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) announced a tentative agreement was reached on the National Master Agreement for small package. The agreement, which is subject to ratification, covers approximately 246,000 full and part-time employees in the U.S.

The new agreement provides for our employees while balancing UPS’s need to remain highly competitive for years to come. It rewards our employees for their contributions to the company’s success and ensures we have the flexibility to meet customers’ needs.

We continue negotiations on the UPS® Freight National Master Agreement and a number of local supplemental agreements. Once these are finalized, employees will begin voting to ratify both the national and supplemental agreements. Until the new agreements are ratified, you may see unofficial materials from parties trying to influence the IBT and put public pressure on UPS.

Business continues as usual at UPS. For timely information about the negotiations, visit unionnegotiations.ups.com.

Sessions: Peter Strzok Has Lost His Security Clearance…

 

Why does he still have a job? And especially in HR where he could be behind hiring people?

Via Daily Caller:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that former FBI official Peter Strzok has lost his security clearance amid an internal disciplinary review.

“Mr. Strzok, as I understand, has lost his security clearance,” Sessions told radio host Howie Carr.

Strzok was escorted out of FBI headquarters on Friday, the day after the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released its long-awaited report about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Strzok, who served as deputy chief of counterintelligence, was one of the top investigators on the Clinton probe and the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We?

 

Presidents have many jobs, and one is telling us who we are.

For the first 240 years of U.S. history, at least, our most revered chief executives reliably articulated a set of high-minded, humanist values that bound together a diverse nation by naming what we aspired to: democracy, humanity, equality. The Enlightenment ideals Thomas Jefferson etched onto the Declaration of Independence were given voice by Presidents from George Washington.

Donald Trump doesn’t talk like that. In the 18 months since his Inauguration, Trump has mentioned “democracy” fewer than 100 times, “equality” only 12 times and “human rights” just 10 times. The tallies, drawn from factba.se, a searchable online agglomeration of 5 million of Trump’s words, contrast with his predecessors’: at the same point in his first term, Ronald Reagan had mentioned equality three times as often in recorded remarks, which included 48 references to human rights, according to the American Presidency Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Trump embraces a different set of values. He speaks often of patriotism, albeit in the narrow sense of military duty, or as the kind of loyalty test he’s made to NFL players. He also esteems religious liberty and economic vitality. But American’s 45th President is “not doing what rhetoricians call that ‘transcendent move,’” says Mary E. Stuckey, a communications professor at Penn State University and author of Defining Americans: The Presidency and National Identity. Instead, with each passing month he is testing anew just how far from our founding humanism his “America first” policies can take us. And over the past two months on our southern border, we have seen the result.

High Court: Online Shoppers Can Be Forced To Pay Sales Tax

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — States will be able to force more people to pay sales tax when they make online purchases under a Supreme Court decision Thursday that will leave shoppers with lighter wallets but is a big financial win for states.

 

Consumers can expect to see sales tax charged on more online purchases — likely over the next year and potentially before the Christmas shopping season — as states and retailers react to the court’s decision, said one attorney involved in the case.

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 opinion Thursday overruled a pair of decades-old decisions that states said cost them billions of dollars in lost revenue annually. The decisions made it more difficult for states to collect sales tax on certain online purchases, and more than 40 states had asked the high court for action. Five states don’t charge sales tax.

The cases the court overturned said that if a business was shipping a customer’s purchase to a state where the business didn’t have a physical presence such as a warehouse or office, the business didn’t have to collect sales tax for the state. Customers were generally responsible for paying the sales tax to the state themselves if they weren’t charged it, but most didn’t realize they owed it and few paid.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the previous decisions were flawed.

Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller contributed to this report.

BREAKING: FBI Agent Who Said He Would ‘Stop’ Trump Escorted From FBI Building

 

VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO HERE 

On Tuesday, CNN reported that FBI agent Peter Strzok, who helped head up both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russian collusion investigation, was escorted from the FBI building last Friday.

Jake Tapper reported, “He was escorted from the FBI building on Friday.” Legal correspondent Laura Jarrett explained that he was still employed at the FBI as of Tuesday afternoon, but is facing a professional responsibility investigation.

This move came after Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced last week that Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages, including one in which Strzok promised his lover that he would “stop” Trump, had undercut the credibility of the department in serious ways. That IG report concluded:

[I]t is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice.

Horowitz testified before Congress on Monday that “I can’t think of something more concerning than a law enforcement officer suggesting that they’re going to try and use or may use their powers to effect an election.”
