Previously Deported Illegal Alien Charged with Brutal Murder of Shakopee, MN Woman
Minnesota officials charged Fraider Diaz-Carbajal from Mexico with the brutal murder of his former girlfriend in Shakopee, Minnesota earlier this month.
Fraider Diaz-Carbajal had been previously deported but told the court he has lived in the are for 18 years.
Fraider does not speak English and needed a translator.
He stabbed his former girlfriend several times before cutting his own neck.
A 27-year-old woman who was killed in Shakopee on Aug. 12 has been identified as Enedelia Perez Garcia, 27, and today prosecutors charged Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, 35, 1279 Taylor St. Unit 6, with second-degree murder (not premeditated) in her death. Police say he was in the country illegally after being deported in 2014.
At about 4:02 p.m. on Aug. 12, Shakopee police were dispatched to a fight call involving a knife at 1279 Taylor St., No. 6., and while on the way to the Taylor Ridge Towhomes, they were told a male had a knife and a female was possibly dead.
According to the charging documents, officers found a bloody scene in the upstairs bedroom: Diaz-Carbajal was lying with his head resting on the stomach and chest of a woman who was sitting on the floor with her back against the wall and did not appear to be breathing. Diaz-Carbajal’s throat was cut with a 6 to 8-inch-long laceration and there were several stab wounds in his abdomen. He was “taking occasional breaths and moving” and a large, bloody knife was at his left side.

Less time in prison, more time on the street.

California’s approach to crime and punishment is complicated enough that a state watchdog agency once referred to it as a “chaotic labyrinth of laws with no cohesive philosophy or strategy.”
The penal code covers thousands of different offenses, each carrying three terms of varying lengths that may be applied depending on mitigating or aggravating circumstances. Convictions for multiple charges can be served concurrently or consecutively, while hundreds of possible enhancements sometimes add more time to an inmate’s sentence than the underlying crime.
Lawmakers are moving to change that this month with Senate Bill 1279, which would largely limit the maximum term of imprisonment for felony convictions to twice the length of the base term. California adopted a similar cap in 1976, according to a legislative analysis, but it was ultimately repealed in 1997, after more and more exceptions were added to the law.
Supporters say SB 1279, which is awaiting a vote in the Assembly after passing the Senate in May, will “refine” California’s complex approach to sentencing, providing a greater balance between felonies and enhancements. Sen. Steven Bradford, a Gardena Democrat who is carrying the measure, said in a written statement that decades of a “tough on crime” mentality devastated communities of color in the state.
“Until we can prove that longer sentences are an effective deterrent to crime and increase public safety, there is absolutely no reason we should dole out extreme and harsh sentences for all cases, which research has widely proven to disproportionately impact black and brown people,” he said.
Donald Trump and his allies were armed with a quick response to former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s guilty verdict – it had nothing to do with Russian collusion, and nothing to do with Trump.
But Michael Cohen’s simultaneous bombshell guilty plea on Tuesday, in which he admitted paying hush money to women just before the 2016 election at Trump’s direction, poses a greater risk to the president.
“The verdict in the Manafort trial isn’t nearly as worrisome to me as the Cohen agreement and the Cohen statement,” said former Trump adviser Michael Caputo. “It’s probably the worst thing so far in this whole investigation stage of the presidency.”
One Republican lawyer close to the White House worried that Cohen – with his unique access to Trump’s history of business dealings and scandalous personal entanglements – could ultimately prove more damaging to Trump, and give Democrats fodder for impeachment if they take the House in November. “It’s the only excuse they’ll need,” the lawyer said. “And believe me, they won’t need much of an excuse.”
The sheer force of the two stories breaking within minutes of each other left an unavoidable impression that the walls are closing in on a president facing serious accusations of wrongdoing, leaving some to worry what Trump will do next.
One former administration official said there’s a “very high” likelihood that the president – who increasingly feels under attack from all sides – will do something erratic that could make an already bad situation worse.
The Manafort and Cohen news came after an already difficult week for the president, who was also grappling with a blockbuster story in The New York Times revealing that Trump’s White House counsel, Don McGahn, is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, fearing that he was being set up to take the fall for any acts of obstruction.
On Tuesday, a grand jury also indicted California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, one of Trump’s first two congressional endorsers, on charges of improperly using campaign funds to pay for personal expenses, including vacations and dental work. Earlier this month, Trump’s other earliest endorser, New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins, was charged with securities fraud. He’s pleaded not guilty.
TRUMP SHOULD BE IMPEACHED “ASAP”…..Papa Mike
On Tuesday, Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen surrendered himself to the FBI after it was reported he reached a plea deal with prosecutors.
FOX News is reporting Michael Cohen’s plea deal is to include between 3-5 years jail time.
Michael Cohen appeared in a Manhattan Federal court at 4 PM ET Tuesday according to spokesman for the federal prosecutor in Manhattan, Bloomberg reported.
Cohen is facing bank and tax fraud charges from a taxi cab business he owned with another business partner after the FBI raided his home and office in April and seized personal property including computers and phones.
Michael Cohen admitted he violated campaign finance laws in relation in relation to the Stormy Daniels payment at direction of Trump.

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer and fixer for President Donald Trump, agreed to plead guilty on Tuesday to eight charges related to tax fraud, excessive campaign contributions, making false statements to a financial institution, and unlawful corporate contributions at a court hearing in New York on Tuesday.
Two of those charges appear to relate to Trump directly. Cohen admitted on Tuesday to making
payments to two women at the direction of an unidentified candidate for political office. Those payments, Cohen said, were made to influence the outcome of the election.

A daddy-daughter dance is melting hearts across the internet.
Brett Thompson’s wife posted a video of him surprising their 2-year-old daughter Phoenix in the hospital last week.
“Today on Phee’s last day of chemo on her first round and Daddy came to visit,” Christina Thompson posted on Facebook. “Little did we know he had some surprises for us.”
The little girl is at a children’s cancer center in Atlanta fighting acute myeloid leukemia – an aggressive cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
When the chemo wrapped up, her mom said a nurse came into the room and dressed Phoenix in a yellow princess gown.
Then, Brett Thompson entered wearing a suit.
Surrounded by stuffed animals, the two danced to Tim McGraw’s “My Little Girl.”
A blonde man is in the bathroom and his wife shouts: “Did you find the shampoo?” He answers, “Yes, but I’m not sure what to do… it’s for dry hair, and I’ve just wet mine.”
A blonde man spies a letter lying on his doormat.It says on the envelope “DO NOT BEND “. He spends the next 2 hours trying to figure out how to pick it up.
A blonde man shouts frantically into the phone, “My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!” “Is this her first child?” asks the Doctor. “No!” he shouts, “this is her husband!”
A blonde man is in jail, the guard looks in his cell and sees him hanging by his feet. “Just WHAT are you doing?” he asks.”Hanging myself,” the blonde replies. “The rope should be around your neck” says the guard. “I tried that,” he replies, “but then I couldn’t breathe.”
An Italian tourist asks a blonde man: “Why do scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats?” To which the blonde man replies: “If they fell forward, they’d still be in the boat.”
A friend told the blonde man: “Christmas is on a Friday this year.”The blonde man then said, “Let’s hope it’s not the 13th.”
Two blonde men find three grenades, and they decide to take them to a police station. One asked: “What if one explodes before we get there?” The other says: “We’ll lie and say we only found two.”
A woman phoned her blonde neighbor and said: “Close your curtains the next time you and your wife are having sex. The whole street was watching and laughing at you yesterday.” The blonde replied: “Well the joke’s on all of you because I wasn’t even home yesterday!
Hillary fundraises for Hillary.
Via NBC News:
Hillary Clinton is stepping back into the limelight before the November midterm elections, helping to raise money for the Democratic National Committee in a series of fundraisers, NBC News has learned.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee will headline three events — in San Francisco, Chicago and New York — for the DNC this fall to boost the party’s chances of seizing control of the U.S. House and Senate.
Billed as “intimate dinners with discussion,” the first invitations were set to go out Monday night for a September event in San Francisco.
Clinton, the former secretary of state whose stunning loss to Republican Donald Trump in 2016 led to widespread criticism of her campaign strategy and message, has maintained a fairly low profile over the past year and a half.
She is also planning fundraisers for some women running for Congress in key races, according to a Democratic source close to her.
In July, Clinton held a fundraiser in New York for Lucy McBath, who became a “mothers of the movement” gun control activist after her 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, was shot and killed in 2012 in a dispute over loud music. McBath recently won her runoff in Georgia.
But Clinton has yet to hit the campaign trail as Republican campaign officials openly welcome her involvement as a means of tying her to Democrats running in Republican-leaning states and districts.

Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known.
With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators.
Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued.
It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood.
Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter or among the other conservative activists who descended into the area that day, many from out of town.
He was one of hundreds of progressive Portlanders who had turned out to oppose the right-wing rally held at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

Bloomberg Businessweek) — For a little while earlier this year, it seemed as though 87-year-old Rosie Thomas and her neighbors in the small town of Gainesville, Va., had beaten Amazon. Virginia’s largest utility, Dominion Energy Inc., had planned to run an aboveground power line straight through a Civil War battlefield—and Thomas’s property—to reach a nearby data center run by an Amazon.com Inc. subsidiary. After three years of petitions and protests in front of the gated data center, skirmishes punctuated by barking dogs and shooing police, Dominion agreed to bury that part of the line along a nearby highway, at an estimated cost of $172 million.
Within a month, however, the utility and state legislators had passed on the cost to Thomas and her fellow Virginians. The state’s House of Delegates approved Dominion’s proposal to raise the money needed for the Amazon line with an as-yet-unannounced monthly fee. “Lord, have mercy,” Thomas said when a neighbor gave her the news this spring in the gravel driveway of her one-story clapboard home, where she was watching the metal disk spin inside the electricity meter on the side of the house. She was already struggling to pay her monthly $170. Leaning forgotten against Thomas’s mailbox was an old protest sign that read “UNPLUG Amazon Extension Cord.” It no longer felt like a trophy.
This sort of thing is becoming a pattern. Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud computing business, is its fastest-growing and most profitable division, but it comes with a lot of upfront infrastructure costs and ongoing expenses, the biggest of which is electricity. Over the past two years, Amazon has almost doubled the size of its physical footprint worldwide, to 254 million square feet, including dozens of new data centers with vast fields of servers running 24/7. In at least two states, it’s also negotiated with utilities and politicians to stick other people with the bills, piling untold millions of dollars on top of the estimated $1.2 billion in state and municipal tax incentives the company has received over the past decade.
Other companies, including Google and Tesla Inc., have taken advantage of the power industry’s hunger for growth and the relative secrecy that followed its 1990s deregulation in dozens of states. But Amazon stands out for its success in offloading its power costs and also because it dominates America’s cloud business, which has gone from nonexistent to using 2 percent of U.S. electricity in about a decade. “Amazon had a huge advantage, because there weren’t a lot of other sectors growing in the electricity market,” says Neal Elliott, senior director of research at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a green lobbying group. The company has also ratcheted up the secrecy around who’s paying for electricity, says environmental advocate Greenpeace, which calls Amazon the single biggest obstacle to industry transparency. Amazon declined to comment for this story.
Tech Giants Google and Facebook are purging conservative content from their platforms — They are hiding conservative stories on Google — They are shadow-banning conservative news on Facebook and Twitter.
In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.
The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.
In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.
Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic since the 2016 election.
Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.
The Gateway Pundit saw a significant drop in Facebook traffic in the last two years.
This is criminal behavior. They take your money for advertising then shadow-ban your site.
This is the definition of a scam.
Meanwhile, liberal sites are doing fine this year.
Google also deleted several top Conservative channels in 2018.
Conservative YouTube channels were deleted in a Google purgein March.
Google later said they “accidentally” deleted conservative channels.
During the election conservatives fled the corrupt mainstream media and went online to get their news from trusted websites.
Today far left tech giants want conservative sites eliminated.
The left is even targeting the advertising and income of conservative websites.
It’s time to regulate Google and Facebook!!!!

Too late, they can’t put the genie back in the bottle.
Via AZ Central:
Donald Trump is a divisive, unpopular president. Throughout 2018, his disapproval rating has remained above 50 percent, sometimes topping his approval rating by more than 16 points.
GOP voter enthusiasm is lagging, independents want to see a Democratic-run Congress by a margin of 20 points, and the D.C. press corps hammers the president relentlessly.
Given this unprecedented opportunity for the midterms, it seems like all the Democratic Party has to do is sit back, remain calm and not screw this up.
President Trump is known to charge up his supporters at his pro-wrestling-style rallies, but the fact that he even exists charges up his critics even more. Whether it’s a bizarre tweet, an offensive comment or just an abrupt change in White House personnel, many Democrats have come unglued.
To be fair, it’s hard to blame them.
Two years ago, they held the most powerful bully pulpit in the world and seemed headed for an easy return to the White House.
For many, the shock of the November 2016 election is yet to be processed; a strange bug in The Matrix that needs to be fixed so the country can get back to the presumed norm of Democratic ascendancy.
But in overreacting to this strange presidency, their prospects for the November 2018 elections could dim. Despite the predictions of a mammoth blue wave washing over Congress, there are troubling signs for Team Donkey.
A Gallup poll this week discovered that, for the first time, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism. Fifty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaners support the state-run economic system, while just 47 percent support free enterprise.
Did these people fall asleep in history class during the lectures about the Soviet Union and the Khmer Rouge? Miss the past few years of Venezuelans unable to find medicine, milk or toilet paper? Forget that just last month, Nicaraguan strongman Daniel Ortega shot up a bunch of university students in a church?
Socialism has never worked and never will, but the majority of Democrats want to give it another shot.
To show how far out of the mainstream this is, Americans as a whole support capitalism over socialism by nearly 20 points. The Democrats think the reverse by 10 points.[…]
Mainstream Democrats understand how loony this kind of talk sounds to most Americans. Yet by embracing DSA candidates like Ocasio-Cortez, they will tie their ailing party to theories that would be laughed off a university quad.
As Bernie Sanders proved, it isn’t just the young candidates donning the socialist label.
The GOP is hitting Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous with his recent quote, “go ahead, call me a socialist.”
In New York’s race for governor, candidate Cynthia Nixon said, “Republicans are going to call us socialists no matter what we do, so we might as well give them the real thing.”
One last data point from that Gallup poll: Only 39 percent of respondents said they had a positive view of the federal government.
Perhaps voters should mull that over before handing those wizards in Washington even more power over our economy.
