Obama Illegally Expands Federal Purview Over Education
President Obama is trying to create federal mandates for state education, contrary to legislation passed by Congress, because that’s how the man who wrote and passed the Dream Act in the West Wing rolls.

Microsoft May Ban Your Favorite Password
Weak and commonly-used passwords are one of the main reasons online accounts can be easily compromised, but Microsoft is taking a step to better protect users by banning the use of such passwords across its services.
To make sure that its users rely on unique, difficult to guess passwords, Microsoft says it is dynamically banning common passwords from Microsoft Account and Azure AD system.

Report Warns of Climate Change Disasters That Rival Hollywood’s
The report highlights 31 sites in 29 countries that have already felt some impact from climate change, including well-known tourist destinations like Easter Island and Yellowstone National Park. It was drawn from peer-reviewed science literature, technical reports and local experts, as well as domestic evaluations of the sites prepared for the World Heritage Committee.

Napolitano: ‘Ample Evidence’ To Indict Clinton, Only Lynch Or Obama Could Prevent It
Napolitano said that “Nobody, not the FBI. Not even her own IT people knew about [Clinton’s use of a server while Secretary of State]. Here’s what is new in the report today. Her server in her house in Chappaqua went down a couple of times. And when it went down, the Blackberry wouldn’t work. And the State Department IT people said here, use a state department Blackberry. And she said through her assistant Huma Abedin, no, because we are concerned with the Freedom of Information Act.”

15-Year-old German Girl Gang-Molested by Muslim Immigrants – Judge Sentences Child-Molesters to 150 Hours of ‘Community Service’
The judge sentenced Mohammed A. to 20 months for sexual assault. But because this nation of law, after the incidents on New Year’s Eve, “should not slide into a downward spiral, in which we let ourselves be harnessed in front of the wagons of certain political groups” and we should not “pass judgments that please the expectations of an angry mob,” the judge suspended the 20 months and gave him probation instead. Under the requirement that the Iraqi, who lacks even a fixed address, complete 150 hours of community service, the court was ready for the man’s immediate release.
Senators to Loretta Lynch: No, You Cannot Punish Climate Change “Deniers”
Two months ago Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted during congressional testimony that Justice Department attorneys were looking into punishment for the fossil fuel industry and certain individuals, including academics and researchers. Their crime? Rejection or denial of climate change and therefore being opposed to President Obama’s agenda on the issue.
Today, five Republican Senators have sent a letter to Lynch reminding her that in America, we don’t have thought police and the Justice Department doesn’t have the power or authority to punish an entire industry because the people in it they think differently than the progressives in charge of the government.
Rioters Prove Mexicans “Not Criminals” By Committing Criminal Acts; Prove Their Loyalty To The U.S. By Brandishing The Mexican Flag–Brilliant Strategy!
The violent mayhem being loosed against Trump at various rallies resembles that of a Third World country. It should also remind us that the framers of the U.S. Constitution were against “mobocracy”.
A significant proportion of these rioters are Mexicans or Mexican-Americans, though it is clear they self-identify as the former not the latter.
