Man Arrested for Illegal Possession of a Meth-Addled Attack Squirrel With Quite the Name

It’s Saturday so we’ll take a quick break from politics to cover something much more serious.

A man in Alabama is giving every crazed Florida man a run for his money this week. Mickey Paulk was arrested and charged with illegal possession of wildlife after it was discovered he was keeping an “attack squirrel” that was strung out on meth. The squirrel’s name was of course “Deez Nuts.”

An Alabama man who gained widespread notoriety after being accused of feeding methamphetamine to what authorities called his ‘attack squirrel’ has now been charged with a state wildlife offense.

Court records indicate 35-year-old Mickey Joel Paulk has been hit with a count of illegal possession of wildlife.

Paulk has not denied having a pet squirrel he named Deez Nuts, which is illegal under state law. But he has denied police allegations that he fed meth to the squirrel to make it aggressive.

Paulk actually led police on a high speed chase that culminated in him ramming an investigators car. He was also wanted on several other drug and firearm related charges.

Others had warned police about the squirrel before they sought to bring Paulk in, letting them know that the squirrel had been trained to attack and was fed meth to keep it aggressive.

This story does have a happy ending though, at least for the squirrel. After treatment, it was successfully released back into the wild in late June. No word on whether it’s found a new dealer yet, but here’s hoping he stays clean.

Dem Rep Secretly Sending Aides Into Mexico To Teach Migrants How To Game Asylum System

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) staff have told The Washington Examiner that Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) has been quietly sending aides into Juarez, a town near the U.S. border, to find illegals who have been deported under the “Remain in Mexico” policy. The migrants are being instructed to pretend they can’t speak Spanish. This will allow them to take advantage of a loophole in the asylum laws and return to the U.S. (Escobar won the seat vacated by Beto O’Rourke.)

The National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and CBP personnel informed The Washington Examiner that members of Rep. Veronica Escobar’s staff have been working with the local Catholic diocese and have allegedly interviewed thousands of migrants in Juarez recently to find migrants who “may have been wrongly returned” by the Department of Homeland Security.

A senior union official has shared evidence gathered by CBP personnel  with the Examiner. He said, “What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol.”

A CBP official explained the “Remain in Mexico” policy (formal name is Bilateral Migration Protection Protocols):

Anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim. A Democratic politician’s aides reescorting people back to the port are telling officers the Central American individual with them cannot speak Spanish despite their having communicated in it days earlier.

The union representative told the Examiner:

What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues…They went through and interviewed everybody, cherry-picked them, brought them back, and now are using them as tag lines. They’re going over there and manufacturing a lot of these issues.

We had finally found a happy medium ‘cause we always get crapped on when it comes to immigration laws, and then they’re finding loopholes to bring them back,” the second official said.

All of the officials are concerned the “interviews might be used to suggest the Border Patrol is wrongfully turning away a large number of asylum-seekers.”

Former federal immigration judge Mark H. Metcalfe said:

The involvement of Escobar’s office was likely more of a stunt than a genuine threat to the integrity of the process.

She’s trying to obviously say these people have been wrongly denied their claims and they’re waiting when they shouldn’t be.

However, a criminal case would exist if Escobar were found to be complicit in an effort to perpetrate a fraud, which would have to include knowingly injecting false statements during interviews, follow-up conversations, and documents presented to U.S. officials.

A DHS official told the Examiner:

Democrats, nonprofit organizations, and 2020 hopefuls are furious that these migrants are not allowed to await their court dates in the U.S., where they have the opportunity to disappear and slip into the interior never to be seen again.”

By opposing a system that assists migrants and speeds wait times, these individuals are exposing a cause that looks more like a cover story for their political motivations. Any efforts to subvert and obstruct federal law enforcement operations should receive a full review.

According to the Examiner:

In one incident, an Escobar aide and diocese official walked a male migrant over the bridge in June and asked for him to be admitted into the U.S. because they had found he had “cognitive disabilities.” Officers took the boy and turned the case over to the Border Patrol, where an agent found a Constituent Information and Privacy Release Form with the U.S. House of Representatives seal on it inside the 17-year-old’s file. Two officials said the paper would have to have been put in his file while he was interviewed in Mexico and was not supposed to have been left there because it would reveal to the Border Patrol that a member of Congress or their staff was meeting with migrants in Mexico.

The boy has since returned to Mexico because the medical condition was not diagnosed by a medical professional but by an aide of the congresswoman, one official said Friday.

“Management saw that form and was like, ‘What is this?’ and reached out to our International Liaison Unit. And ILU said, ‘Yes, Veronica Escobar and several other politicians are in Mexico trying to defeat the MPP program,’” the union said.

In another confirmed case, a female migrant was brought back to the port after claiming to have been raped in Juarez.

Officials said they knew of three other incidents where Escobar’s aides had walked back a “Remain in Mexico” program recipient.

If these allegations are correct, then Escobar is using taxpayer funds to reverse already-decided legal action. A CBP official said “these people were found inadmissible under a new program and they must remain in Mexico. They’re trying to subvert that.”

I am not a lawyer, so I can’t speak to the legality of what Escobar is doing. It’s likely that Escobar is not breaking the law. Ethically, however, I find it egregious that a member of Congress would work to subvert U.S. policy. Even worse, American taxpayers are forced to foot the bill for this chicanery.

Suppose a policeman were to coach a suspect on a specific way they might avoid charges for a crime – not something general, but a precise technicality such as the arresting officer had not followed protocol to the letter. And let’s also assume this policeman was doing this deliberately and enlisting his subordinates to actively search for technicalities which could help suspects to circumvent the law. Many Americans would be horrified.

Illegals have become a privileged class in America. In many ways, they enjoy more rights than U.S. citizens. And, if an illegal also happens to be transgender, the treatment becomes better still.

Oh, to be an undocumented immigrant in America.

Los Angeles Activist & Head of the Mayoral Recall Effort Petitions President Trump: ‘Help Our City. Our Citizens Are Dying’

Westlake Legal Group alexandra-datig-video-for-trump-SCREENSHOT-620x321 Los Angeles Activist & Head of the Mayoral Recall Effort Petitions President Trump: ‘Help Our City. Our Citizens Are Dying’ white house washington D.C. Uncategorized San Francisco poop map los angeles homelessness Front Page Stories Featured Story Eric Garcetti donald trump democrats California Allow Media Exception alexandra datig

[Screenshot from Alexandra Datig, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzhmkXJNhPQ]

 

I once suggested in an online forum that Los Angeles wasn’t doing well. Immediately, a couple Angelenos attacked me. They touted the superiority of the city’s roads, etc. When I posted links supporting the facts, they essentially told me to get the !#?@ out of the forum.

But perhaps one West Coaster who would’ve agreed with me is Alexandra Datig, a local activist.

In fact, she fears the city’s fall a might more than I — she’s created an S.O.S. video for President Trump, imploring, “Please, President Trump, we are calling on you: Help our city. Our citizens are dying; they will continue to die.”

Her presentation begins thusly:

“Message to the President of the United States. Donald J. Trump. Urgent Call for Federal Intervention. Due to the state of emergency caused by homelessness in Los Angeles California.”

I’ve covered Alexandra before: She’s the one heading up a mayoral recall on Eric Garcetti.

In June, she told City News Service Cali was “in a state of emergency.”

For more on that — as well as my personal account of homelessness in downtown L.A. — see here.



Back to Alexandra’s sounding of the alarm to the White House, here’s her message for the Commander-in-Chief:

“[I] am calling on the President of the United States to intervene in Los Angeles due to the state of emergency created by its homeless crisis. In the county of Los Angeles, we have more than 59,000 people homeless. We have more than 36,300 people homeless in the city of Los Angeles, and we have more than 16,000 people living in his or her cars. We have more than 3,000 homeless veterans. Veteran homelessness was supposed to be ended by the year 2015 according to our mayor.

“This has not happened.”

Then she fingers Eric:

“We have had a 75% increase in homelessness in the past six years under the leadership of our mayor, Eric Garcetti. Our leaders, here in this city, have lost heart and cannot deal with the crisis at hand. Our police officers are getting sick; our social workers are getting sick. Our sanitation workers are being treated terribly. Trash problems are everywhere. We are having serious environmental crimes happening, every day, several times a day, where 59,000 people in the county of Los Angeles are dumping raw sewage into our storm drains, entering our waterways.”

Raw sewage — that sounds nice.

Environmentalism, anyone?

“These are serious, serious environmental crimes. We have homeless youth; we have had, in the past five years, to 2018, more than 3,600 people die on the streets of Los Angeles. These people, who are living on the street, some of them, are sentenced to death by homelessness. This situation is completely unacceptable and we need a federal intervention immediately. We need FEMA; we need the Red Cross; we need the CDC and the Environmental Protection Agency.”

Watch the video above, which ends with this serious-as-a-heart-attack appeal:

“We need immediate assistance. This is urgent. Immediate assistance is needed. Now. Today. No delay. Please, President Trump, we are calling on you: Help our city. Our citizens are dying; they will continue to die.”

Alexandra isn’t the only one warning of the Golden State’s demise — last month, historian Victor Hanson told Tucker Carlson California is the country’s “first Third World state.”

There are certainly scenes playing out in the home of Democrats & Dodgers that would support that notion.

Still, L.A. still has a ways to go to compete with overachiever San Fran — maps of the city can help you find restaurants, hotels, entertainment complexes, and piles of human turds (please see here). The new San Francisco treat?

#Merica: Oregon Activists Went Flag Planting on Independence Day at Nike HQ in Response to Flag Shoe Decision

In the aftermath of Nike’s recent decision not to sell Betsy Ross flag-themed tennis shoes, average American citizens who were offended by the news have expressed their outrage in many different ways.

Some took to social media to share their thoughts. Some have put pen to paper and are writing letters to Nike. Some vowed to never wear Nike merchandise again.

But in Oregon, where Nike’s World HQ is located, some activists took a different approach.

Author Jeff Reynolds, writing at PJ Media, reports on how some of the locals responded:

On Independence Day, local activists planted American flags at the entrance of Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. The intent was to show Nike that, despite what Colin Kaepernick may have told them, not everyone thinks the American flag is a symbol of racism and slavery.

[…]

One activist who helped to plant the flags at Nike told PJ Media, “It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t get any Betsy Ross flags, but the message is the same. We wanted to remind Nike that Colin Kaepernick is simply wrong about the history of the flag.”

Reynolds noted that the flag planting started on a small scale, but that the number of flags grew as the day went on.

Here’s one of several images Reynolds took of the planted flags:

There are many more photos posted of the flag display here.

Well done, Oregon patriots. Well done.

Man Confronts “Nazi” at D.C. BBQ Joint, It Doesn’t Go Well

Westlake Legal Group 2007-06-06d-day Man Confronts “Nazi” at D.C. BBQ Joint, It Doesn’t Go Well TJ Helmstetter Texas BBQ Punked Politics Nazis MAGA hat Left-Wing Insanity Hill Country BBQ Hilarious Front Page Stories Front Page Fourth of July Featured Story donald trump democrats Crazy assault

Just like D-Day.

There’s a BBQ Joint in D.C. that opened under President Bush called Hill Country BBQ. Having eaten there many times, I’ll give it the Bonchie seal of approval. It lives up to it’s billing as a very good representation of Texas pit BBQ.

Given it’s food styling, it draws in one of the more diverse crowds in the area and it was no surprise that some Trump supporters decided to eat there after the Fourth of July festivities on the National Mall.

One of those people happened to be wearing a MAGA hat and this apparently triggered the crap out of some liberal dude who describes himself as a “progressive communicator.”

He’s protected his Twitter due to the sheer ratio he’s been receiving, so I can’t embed the actual tweets.

Just got thrown out of Hill Country DC for standing up to a Nazi. Don’t go there ever again. They support Trump and Nazis. @HillCountryWDC @HillCountryBBQ

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

Guy wears MAGA hat at my favorite restaurant. I say “hey are you from dc?” He says “no.” I say “we don’t tolerate racism in this city.” His girlfriend then physically jabs fingers into my chest and starts threatening me. Management tells me to leave, not woman who assaulted me.

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

I’m literally shaking after reading that.

So the “Nazi” he was confronting was actually just some random guy trying to enjoy his brisket. He offers no evidence (nor does he even try to claim) that the man was acting out in anyway that called for confrontation. This was literally just a liberal being so overly triggered by a hat that he turned into Captain America and walked over to the table. Perhaps funnier is that in the midst of his harassment, the innocent man’s girlfriend punked Helmstetter by telling him to bug off.

Instead of just taking the loss, Helmstetter decided it’d be a good idea to squeal that he was assaulted and run to Twitter with his harrowing story.

Even better, when contacted, the restaurant did the right thing and didn’t kowtow to the possible mob being summoned.

Just called the manager there and his answer was “we are an equal opportunity restaurant who welcomes all political viewpoints” before hanging up on me. cool, except MAGA hats actually make clear that POC and LGBT are not welcome at all.

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

And for the record, the Nazi’s girlfriend assualted me by jabbing her fingers into my chest repeatedly, and I simply backed up. Yet I was told to leave, not the Nazi or his Nazi girlfriend.— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

Actually, POC and LGBT persons are clearly welcome just like everyone else. A red hat is not a threat to anyone nor does it delineate that a person is a “Nazi” simply because they support President Trump. The assumptions being made by this clown are just moronic. How much of a wuss do you have to be to get that worked up over someone quietly eating their dinner?

To clear up his confusion, when you violate someone’s personal space and harass them in a private setting, there is some amount of push back allowed. No one is getting arrested and charged with assault for putting their fingers into your chest and telling you to step back.

Also, I’ll note that political discrimination is illegal in Washington D.C.

This is what you get in a society who’s excesses have reached such a high level that people have to invent tyranny in order to give their lives meaning. This guy really thinks he’s a heroic fighter of Nazis because he got triggered by a MAGA hat and endured an “assault” at the hands of someone’s girlfriend. It’s pure delusion.

Unfortunately, these kinds of stories are becoming more and more common as left-wingers seek to not just disagree with their opposition, but banish them from polite society. We’ve seen numerous examples of attacks on Trump supporters, politicians, and administration officials in eateries across the country. It’s gross and uncalled for.

Eventually, someone is going to do this to the wrong person and things are going to escalate to an undesired place. We’d all be much better off as a civilization if we went back to leaving politics in the political arena. Disagreement does not denote evil on your opponent and trying to create a segregated society where people can’t even enjoy a peaceful meal is leading us into a dark place.

For the moment though we can simply point and laugh at this guy. I have a feeling he won’t be standing up to anymore “Nazis” for a while.

The Trump Administration Goes Dr. Evil: Illegals Will Be Charged Up to Half a Million Dollars for Staying in the Country

There’s a new move on the part of the Trump administration where it concerns those in the country illegally: They’re going to be subjected to fines up to $500,000 for not leaving after being told to.

Something tells me they may not be able to pay that. So does it matter?

Regardless, here’s NPR:

The Department of Homeland Security sent out a batch of notices across the country to targeted individuals ordering them to pay fines of up to nearly $500,000 for “failing to depart the U.S. as previously agreed,” among other factors. The letters come as the Trump administration prepares to carry out delayed immigration sweeps of migrant families who have received deportation orders. President Trump said Monday, while signing legislation providing $4.6 billion in funding to address the influx of migrants from Central America, that the immigration raids will begin after the July 4 holiday if Congress can’t pass new restrictions on asylum laws.

As for ponying up a cool half mil, NPR acquired a particular notice sent to an illegal immigrant stating the following:

“It is the intention of ICE to order you pay a fine in the amount of $497,777.”

ICE official Matthew Bourke explained that it’s part of a comprehensive approach:

“ICE is committed to using various enforcement methods — including arrest, detention, technological monitoring and financial penalties — to enforce U.S. immigration law and maintain the integrity of legal orders issued by judges.”

Are the fines legal? They are, ICE claims, as per the Immigration and Nationality Act.

This week, Trump also talked of a citizenship question being added to the 2020 census:

He also offered a very simple and direct solution to illegal immigration:

And then there was this from the President on detention center conditions, which I covered previously:

“I think they do a great job with those facilities, but you know how it can be taken care of? Number one: Tell them not to come because it’s illegal.”

See more here.

Back to the notion of an astronomical bill:

[Illegal immigrant Edith Espinal], 42, said she could not believe the U.S. government thought she would have almost half a million dollars. She has been living in sanctuary at an Ohio church since an immigration judge ordered her removed two years ago. The church, its congregation and the community have largely supported her and her family.

“They want to scare me,” Espinal said, adding, “because they know I am in sanctuary. And they know I don’t have this amount of money.”

I’d think such a high cost would be less potent than something somewhere near the realm of the possible. We seem to have gone full Austin Powers:

Video: Marine Veteran Launches Into a Group of Leftist Protesters In Order to Rescue a Burning Flag

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-1-620x402 Video: Marine Veteran Launches Into a Group of Leftist Protesters In Order to Rescue a Burning Flag Veteran secret service Politics marine Front Page Stories flag Featured Story burning arrest Allow Media Exception

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that leftists decided to show up at the Independence Day parade in order to vocally denounce the greatness of the greatest nation in the world. It also shouldn’t surprise anyone that they were vastly outnumbered by the people there to celebrate the fact that they live in a nation where you can have stupid ideas like that without being put in jail.

Regardless, a few of the protesters decided to get together and chant about how America was never great, and do a little flag burning while they were at it. They were riding high on the smell of their own gas until a veteran showed up and rescued the flag.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Steven Nelson, who captured the event on video, a man wearing a red “MAGA” shirt plowed into the midst of some of the protesters and proceeded to make off with it. He quickly put the flag out and made his way back to the protesters and physically pushed them. The protesters quickly closed ranks with their backs to one another and began chanting.

“My flag mother f**kers!” said the man.

Nelson asked if the man was a veteran, and got an answer in the affirmative.

Some of the protesters were arrested shortly after the flag burning.

While it is legal to burn the flag, Nelson reported that a Secret Service statement said the protesters were arrested on different charges:

In a statement, the Secret Service said two officers “received minor injuries while attempting to make arrests” and were taken to a hospital for treatment.

The Supreme Court has found flag-burning protected by the First Amendment, but the Secret Service said Johnson and the other man were arrested on different charges. One faces a charge for “felony assault on a police officer and malicious burning” and the other “for obstructing a police investigation and resisting arrest.” The agency did not identify either man by name.

Ted Cruz Drops a Truth Bomb on NYT Editorial Writer Who Insulted Him for Quoting Douglass to Kaepernick

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, holds up a copy of the Mueller report as he questions Attorney General William Barr during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, May 1, 2019, on the Mueller Report. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

As I wrote this morning, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took time out of holiday festivities on Thursday to provide some additional context for a provocative tweet sent out out by former NFL QB-turned-social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick.

To recap, Kaepernick quoted a portion of abolitionist and statesman Frederick Douglass’s July 5, 1852 speech about Independence Day. Just reading the singular quote alone, someone who hadn’t read the full speech or who otherwise didn’t understand Douglass’s legacy would get the impression that he didn’t like his country very much:

Sen. Cruz saw the Douglass quote and who posted it, and decided to add some much-needed context:

After noting the quote Kaepernick used was taken out of context, Cruz spent one tweet providing some background on the speech and when it was given, and then sent several tweets quoting directly from the speech. He concluded by encouraging everyone to read the full speech in context.

Cruz providing additional information and direct quotes for Twitter users to digest when considering Douglass’s words did not sit well at all with New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay, who wrote a sneering note to the Senator in response:

Cruz fired back not long after, and I could swear I heard a “boom!” somewhere off in the distance:

Why specifically did Gay take off after Cruz over his series of tweets? Not just because she’s a fan of Douglass’s, but also because she digs Kaepernick – which she made clear in this photo she tweeted out July 4th, about 25 minutes after Kaepernick’s post:

Ivana Trump’s Ex: ‘The Trump Kids Are Garbage’

Normally reporting on the rants and raves from the ex of the ex would be poor form, but since these days Trump Derangement Syndrome is all the rage why not add one more nut to the party mix?

President Trump’s first wife Ivana has been in and out of a relationship with Italian actor Rossano Rubicondi for almost a decade. The two were married in 2008, divorced in 2009 but continued to date off and on. After getting recently dumped by Trump, Rubicondi went on a tirade against the Trump kids.

Rubicodi told Page Six that the Trump children were ‘disgusting’ and ‘stupid’, saying they constantly treated him with disrespect. In what perhaps is an explanation for his rage against his former lover’s children, the Italian ‘toyboy’ launched into an unprompted rant about Ivana’s money and the accusations that he may have taken advantage of her fortune.

It sounds as if there was some quibbling with the kids over cash because — without elaborating on any specific incident involving money — he defensively told us: “No one touched a dollar or dime from their family . . . I don’t know [if that’s why they didn’t like me], but these people are all about money. They don’t have a heart. They are garbage.”

He added, “Don Jr. is an idiot. He’s a jerk,” and instructed us, “Put it down: ‘You are a jerk.’ Put it in capital letters!”

He added: “They are nobody . . . They are disgusting. We are talking about kids who are so stupid, except Ivanka.”

Rubicondi raged on, “They are a piece of scum. Before they say anything about me, I will wash their mouth out with soap! They are disgrace for human being.”

Rubicondi might have a great future at CNN.
