California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Friday he’s pardoning three immigrants who’ve been convicted of crimes as part of an effort to protect them from deportation to their home countries.

The three men — originally from El Salvador, Iran and Cambodia — broke the law as teens or young adults, served their sentences and have taken steps to rehabilitate themselves, the governor’s office said.

CALIFORNIA SALON OWNER BLASTS GOV. NEWSOM OVER HOMELESS CRISIS: HE’S MORE CONCERNED WITH ‘TROLLING’ TRUMP

But Newsom’s pardons do not completely shield the men from deportation. The move instead erases the mens’ criminal records to prevent past offenses from being considered in their deportation cases. All three men live in Los Angeles County and were brought to the U.S. legally as children, the governor’s office said.

“The Governor regards clemency as an important part of the criminal justice system that can incentivize accountability and rehabilitation, increase public safety by removing counterproductive barriers to successful reentry, and correct unjust results in the legal system,” a news release said.

The governor, a Democrat, pardoned 38-year old Victor Ayala, who in 2001 at age 21 was convicted of felony robbery and sentenced to probation for pushing a security guard while shoplifting from an electronics store, The Sacramento Bee reported. He also had four prior misdemeanor convictions for theft and a hit-and-run in which no one suffered injuries, Los Angeles’ KTLA-TV reported.

According to the governor’s office, Ayala’s parents brought him legally into the U.S. from El Salvador when he was 2. He is now a father of three who owns a carpet-cleaning business.

Newsom also pardoned 41-year-old Thear Seam, who at age 18 was convicted of robbing a man’s wallet and backpack. He was convicted as an accessory the next year after leading police on a high-speed chase while helping another man, a car thief whole stole a separate vehicle, evade arrest, KTLA reported.

Seam entered the U.S. legally as a 4-year-old refugee fleeing Cambodia from the Khmer Rouge. His wife and daughter are both U.S. citizens and he’s worked for 17 years at an aviation company.

The third immigrant to be pardoned was Arnou Aghamalian, 42, who as a 22-year-old in 1999 was convicted of helping his cousin set a nightclub owner’s unoccupied car on fire after a dispute. Newson’s office said Aghamalian entered the U.S. with his family at age 15 as a refugee from Iran. He and his wife are the parents to newborns twins. He now owns a solar energy company.

In addition to pardoning the three immigrants, Newsom pardoned a fourth man, 59-year-old Curtis Reynolds of Sacramento Country, who was convicted of six drug felonies including possession for sale between 1998 and 2003, The Bee reported. Newsom said since his convictions, Reynolds has dedicated his life to volunteering to help those struggling with addiction.

Newsom also commuted the sentences for two men previously facing life in prison. Esdvin Flores, 44, has served 20 years behind bars for robbing a woman at gunpoint at age 23. Jensen Ramos, 35, has served 17 years for attempted murder after firing at a car fleeing a brawl at a house party when he was 17. The governor’s office said both men have taken steps to rehabilitate themselves from behind bars. The commutations make both eligible to enter into parole hearings.

Bill Maher says Trump has made Syria ‘more anti-American than Berkeley’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-season-17-1-HBO Bill Maher says Trump has made Syria 'more anti-American than Berkeley' Victor Garcia fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/media fnc article a7265e27-7cd5-55dd-8095-97f393f8a4f0

Comedian Bill Maher weighed in on President Trump‘s Syria withdrawal Friday, accusing the commander-in-chief of empowering ISIS.

“Good news, we finally found someone in the Middle East to greet us as liberators. Bad news, it’s ISIS,” Maher said on “Real Time” during his opening monologue. “We’ve let a lot of the ISIS people out.”

ROMNEY SLAMS TRUMP OVER TROOP PULLOUT

Trump has faced bipartisan criticism over his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. On Thursday night, the president praised a cease-fire between Turkey and the Kurds, crediting his “unconventional” approach for enabling the truce.

Just hours after Trump announced a cease-fire between Turkish and Kurdish-led forces in Syria Thursday, journalists reported continued fighting in the Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn on Friday morning, while other areas have reported relative calm since the agreement.

Maher lamented Trump’s decision, saying Syria has now been taken over not only ISIS but by Russia and Iran, and compared the new arrangment to a hotbed of liberalism in California.

“We just lost Syria. Syria is now being taken over by Russia, Iran and ISIS,” Maher joked. “Trump has created the only place in the world that is more anti-American than Berkeley.”

The comic also mentioned the “meltdown” between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Trump that occured Wednesday during a White House meeting over Syria.

“So Wednesday, he has Pelosi and Schumer into the White House to talk about ‘What the f— are you doing in Syria?’ He has a meltdown because Nancy Pelosi said all roads with you lead to Putin,” Maher said. “How dare you accuse me of having a plan?”

Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced Wednesday that they had walked out of a meeting with Trump on Syria policy, after he apparently called Pelosi either a “third-rate politician” or “third-grade politician” and angrily suggested the Democrats probably appreciated communist Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East.

Maher wasn’t finished directing his ire at Trump, proposing during his “New Rules” segment at the end of that he along with other celebrities bribe the president out of office.

“Just take my check for one million dollars,” Maher said, before rattling off numerous single named celebrities he thought would pitch in.

“So Mr. President, it is really very simple, you love money, we hate you,” Maher said.

How to hide Amazon orders, keep your privacy from Google and more: Tech Q&A

Dark Web Check-In

Q: With all the data breaches, is there a way to know if my data is for sale on the dark web?

A: Whether it’s your email, blog, bank account, or cloud service, you may not have any idea whether it’s been breached. What you need is an extremely helpful website, Have I Been Pwned. The site scours the internet and quickly determines whether your accounts have been hacked; or, in the brand’s parlance, “pwned.” Even if you don’t know what data has been stolen and how it’s being used, you can at least pinpoint what kind of data has been exposed and strategize how to respond. In the case of email, for example, hackers usually just use your account to send spam and phishing messages to your contacts automatically, but a skilled hacker will also lock you out. You’ll need to act fast to mitigate the damage. Tap or click here to check whether your email account has been hacked.

Record Calls

Q: How do I record phone calls on my phone? There does not seem to be a setting for that.

A: The bottom line is, recording a phone call isn’t easy. Developers don’t want you just to record anyone you talk with, as this is considered an invasion of privacy. After all, it’s impossible to tell whether the person on the other end of the line is secretly recording you, and your voice can be used against you in countless ways – never mind the content of a (supposedly) private conversation. That said, recording a phone conversation can be extremely helpful, especially for research, interviews, and even podcasting. The result: there’s no onboard method for recording, but there are third-party apps that can work like a charm. Tap or click here for a quick DIY video about how to record calls on your iPhone or Android.

Evade Google

Q: I am tired of Google tracking me. Are there other search sites and Gmail options that don’t track you?

A: Browsing the web isn’t just a choice between giants like Google and Bing; several search engines are specifically designed to protect your privacy. One of the most famous is Tor, which effectively grants you access to the Dark Web. Meanwhile, there are several less intense options, which behave much like Google but don’t follow you or collect your data. You can also find ways to watch videos, navigate through GPS, and use Gmail-like electronic mail – minus all the corporate stalking. Tap or click here for alternatives to Google.

Hide Amazon Orders

Q: I bought a few very personal things on Amazon that I don’t want my partner or kids to see. How can I hide those orders?

A: Hiding your orders from loved ones can be a real boon around the holidays when the last thing you want is to ruin the surprise. Deleting your browsing history is a good start, but you can also archive your orders, which makes it difficult for anyone – including Amazon users sharing your account – to find your orders. In theory, someone could still find those orders in your archives, but it would take extra effort, and most people wouldn’t think to do so. Also, you could create a family rule that no one digs through the archives. Tap or click here for three ways to keep your Amazon gifts under wraps.

Airports, Expedited

Q: You mentioned a way to bypass the security lines at the airport. How does the app work? Is this different than TSA Pre-check?

A: This may be hard to believe when you’re standing in line at the security checkpoint, but TSA wants travelers to get through the airport as quickly as possible. To speed up this process, veteran TSA agents created Mobile Passport, which condenses all of your pertinent information into a single QR code. In a participating airport, you can head to a specific desk – which should have a significantly shorter line – and scan the code. This should save you, and border agents, a great deal of time. If you fly a lot, you may also be interested in the Global Entry Card. This requires some extra legwork, but with a Global Entry Card you can expect your entire border crossing to take about five minutes. Tap or click here to get a Global Entry Card.

Why This Nebraska Democrat Thinks She Can Get Elected In Trump Country

A Nebraska Democrat is hoping GOP Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s devotion to President Donald Trump — and the state’s sinking support for the president — will help her flip a district that’s elected a Republican to Congress since 1964. 

State Sen. Kate Bolz, a former social worker who grew up on a family farm southeast of Lincoln, is running to oust Fortenberry next year. Since Fortenberry won his seat in 2004, he has been reelected by comfortable margins in the state’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses Lincoln (home of the University of Nebraska), Bellevue, Offutt Air Force base and rural towns. 

Bolz sees an opening in 2020, despite Fortenberry’s past popularity and the Trump’s triumph in the district in 2016 by 20 percentage points. She hopes to capitalize on the “blue wave” momentum of the 2018 election and her state’s large share of independent voters to finally flip the seat.

“I think people are paying attention more now than ever, partly because of the national context,” she said. 

Bolz is one of thousands of Democratic women running for higher office across the country in 2020. While she’s no first-time candidate, having won her legislative seat in 2012, she’s part of the larger push to get more Democratic women elected next year. 

Westlake Legal Group 5da60740200000a40d50397e Why This Nebraska Democrat Thinks She Can Get Elected In Trump Country

GETTY/KATE BOLZ Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) “has done nothing to help Nebraska farmers hurt by the trade war,” state Sen. Kate Bolz said. She hopes to oust him in the 2020 election.

Fortenberry is a staunch Trump defender, and Bolz told HuffPost she was inspired by his inaction against the president to run for the House seat. Even after Fortenberry’s teenage daughter approached him in tears over Trump’s degrading comments about women in 2016, the congressman stood by the president, and he has since spoken out against House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. 

“The most troubling things are less the actions that [Fortenberry] has taken ― it’s his inaction on issues of such great importance,” Bolz said in discussing her decision to challenge him.

“Bolz is going to be a strong candidate, but I’m not sure that will be enough,” said John Hibbing, a professor of politics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “I do think it’s a long shot.”

A surefire route to a Bolz win, Hibbing said, would be “a complete collapse of the Trump administration.”

And that potential collapse may be coming in the wake of the president’s Ukraine controversy.

“The key would be what Fortenberrry’s position is on that, and if he goes down with the ship, which could be damaging to him,” Hibbing said. “It would look bad, so I’m not sure he would do that.” 

But thus far, he has. 

Fortenberry — a Louisiana native who moved to the Cornhusker State after college and served on Lincoln City Council before being elected to Congress ― has called the impeachment inquiry “drama.” He said he “found no violation of campaign laws” after reading the White House-issued summary of Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that kicked into gear the push to oust Trump from office.

 Fortenberry did not return HuffPost requests for comment. 

Bolz, 40, is running on a platform that she said is influenced by her background in social work and her deep understanding and connection to her district. Before she was elected to the Legislature, she worked for children and families at the non-profit Nebraska Appleseed. She also serves as executive director at the Nebraska Association of Service Providers, which offers professional support and resources for people with disabilities. 

“My social work background helps me keep people first,” she said. “We need to be focused on the people and not on the politics … I believe Nebraskans are still open to voting for the person, not the party.”

Supporting Nebraska’s Farmers 

That belief fuels her bid to break the entrenched GOP hold on the 1st Congressional District. ”Nebraskans are independent-minded,” she told HuffPost.

The state’s fastest growing bloc of voters are independents, designated as non-partisan. In 2018, 21% of Nebraskans were registered as non-partisan ― a significant jump from the 14% in 2000. 

“There are lots of reasons that we really believe we can run and win,” Bolz said. She’s primarily interested in stressing the need for affordable health care access and ensuring economic stability for the district’s farmers. 

Since announcing her campaign last month, Bolz has hit Fortenberry hard for his opposition to the Affordable Care Act. 

“One of the things that motivates me the most is the fact that Rep. Fortenberry voted against 768,000 Nebraskans” when he opposed the ACA, she said.

She noted that the state approved Medicaid expansion through a ballot initiative, and that most voters in the 1st Congressional District supported it. 

Fortenberry, 58, also supports Trump’s trade dispute with China, despite the estimated $950 billion that Nebraskans have lost because of it. 

The incumbent “has done nothing to help Nebraska farmers hurt by the trade war,” Bolz said when she announced her campaign.

Bolz plans a listening tour of the state during November, and told HuffPost she’s encouraged that “people have been so kind and supportive” of her as she has campaigned.

“I think people are eager for a race in this district, and a political leader who’s willing to listen,” she said. “I care about my neighbors and my community, and if you care about the best interests of farmers and families and Nebraska voters, you have to care about this election.”

Hunter Biden got $83G per month for Ukraine ‘ceremonial’ gig: report

Westlake Legal Group Hunter-Biden-Getty Hunter Biden got $83G per month for Ukraine 'ceremonial' gig: report fox-news/world/united-nations/corruption fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 54b79b1c-248d-51c0-ada6-c419f1dbd629

Hunter Biden was reportedly paid $83,333 per month after being hired in 2014 by Burisma Holdings, one of Ukraine’s largest natural gas companies, while serving as a non-executive “ceremonial figure” with a “powerful name,” a report said Friday.

All told, the Ukraine company paid $3.4 million to Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC, a company headed by Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer, The National Review reported.

Between April 2014 and November 2015, Biden and Archer each received monthly payments of $83,333 for “consulting services.”

HUNTER BIDEN’S QUESTIONABLE PAST AND BUSINESS DEALINGS COULD UNDO DAD’S BID FOR WHITE HOUSE

Burisma Holdings founder Mykola Zlochevsky hired the son of former Vice President Joe Biden to “protect” the company in the face of prosecution, the Review reported.

Zlochevsky faced investigation in Ukraine and was initially cleared of wrongdoing for tax violations, money laundering and corruption. But earlier this month Ukrainian Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka said 15 cases involving Zlochevsky would be reviewed, according to The National Review.

Biden’s work with the company has come under scrutiny after President Trump alleged that Joe Biden inappropriately used his diplomatic influence in Ukraine to help his son.

No evidence of wrongdoing has been found and both Joe Biden and Hunter Biden deny the allegations. Hunter Biden has since pledged to avoid business deals with foreign entities if his father becomes president.

A July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — in which Trump asked his counterpart to investigate the Bidens — led the Democrat-controlled House to start the Trump impeachment inquiry earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s campaign said in a fundraising email Friday that it is hemorrhaging cash and lags behind the campaigns of top 2020 rivals Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders as it continue to spend more than it takes in.

Ex-Ethics Chief: If Trump Resort Hosting G-7 ‘Is Not Corrupt, Nothing Is’

Westlake Legal Group 5daadaad210000551aad348e Ex-Ethics Chief: If Trump Resort Hosting G-7 ‘Is Not Corrupt, Nothing Is’

Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, has doubled down on his scathing criticism of the selection of President Donald Trump’s Miami golf resort to host next year’s G-7 summit.

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Shaub said acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s dismissal of fears that Trump could personally profit from the event were “a ridiculous thing” to say.

Trump has been accused of violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause, which prohibits federal officeholders from accepting gifts or profits from foreign states, with the decision.

“Essentially, it boils down to this, the president in the United States participated in a contract awarded to his own business,” said Shaub, who served under former President Barack Obama and the first six months of Trump’s administration until he resigned.

“This is the figurative equivalent of he reaches into the treasury, grabs a chunk of money and says ‘don’t worry, I’m not taking more than I’m spending,’” Shaub continued. “That’s no defense at all and certainly, if it had been Mick Mulvaney who owned this property, he’d be prosecuted and convicted of a felony and wouldn’t be able to say ‘don’t worry, I broke even.’”

Shaub later summed up the “the bottom line.”

“There is no definition of corruption that would not cover the president participating in a contract awarded to himself. So, if this is not corrupt, nothing is corrupt,” he said. “And that’s exactly what he wants and it seems to be exactly what the United States Senate is determined to have be the case.”

Shaub on Thursday claimed the decision to host the event at the resort was “so overtly corrupt that it can’t be viewed as anything but a loyalty test for Senators.” “If they are corrupt enough to look the other way, Trump will know he can do anything. In that case, he will do everything,” he added.

Media ignoring Bidens’ Ukraine dealings to protect ex-VP, Corey Lewandowski alleges

A U.S. State Department official’s concerns in 2015 about Hunter Biden’s role in a Ukrainian business and the official’s claims of being rebuffed by the staff of then-Vice President Joe Biden are going largely unnoticed in the media, former Trump aide Corey Lewandowski said Friday.

Why have mainstream media outlets been giving little attention to the congressional testimony of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent? Because Kent’s concerns may hurt Joe Biden’s chances of winning the White House in 2020, Lewandowski charged Friday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“We haven’t seen any of the mainstream media covering this because this is an attack on Joe Biden,” he said. “The liberal left is rallying around Joe Biden. And, the truth is, we know what Hunter Biden has now said: If his father gets elected president, he won’t join any foreign boards [and] he won’t try and influence his father.”

“The liberal left is rallying around Joe Biden.”

STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TOLD CONGRESS HE RAISED CONCERNS ABOUT HUNTER BIDEN’S UKRAINE DEALINGS IN 2015 BUT WAS IGNORED

Lewandowski said Hunter Biden’s no-foreign-entanglements pledge would be like him claiming he would stop slam-dunking over other players if he played pro basketball.

“When it’s the Democrats doing this, [the media] turns a blind eye to it,” he said. “It’s just not going to happen, we know that, so these are just false promises.”

Kent, who testified behind closed doors before House committees spearheading the formal Trump impeachment inquiry, told congressional investigators he had qualms about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

The Washington Post first reported details of Kent’s testimony Friday, including his concerns that the younger Biden’s role in the overseas company could complicate U.S. diplomatic efforts with Ukrainian officials, and raised the issue of a possible conflict of interest. Kent also testified he was worried that Hunter Biden’s position would make Ukrainian officials think he was a channel of influence to his father, who was vice president at the time.

A congressional source confirmed to Fox News on Friday that Kent testified that when he brought his concerns to the office of the vice president in 2016, Joe Biden’s staff “blew him off” and ignored the issue involving the younger Biden’s role at the firm. The Post first reported that staffers said they did not have the “bandwidth” to deal with the issue, as his other son — former Delaware State Attorney General Beau Biden — was battling the cancer from which he ultimately died in 2015.
