    Thousands of tickets distributed for Trump’s Everett visit

    “Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson is among the leaders of a “No Hate in Our State” counter-rally planned for outside the arena.”

    Anyone taking bets that the city of Everett will allow protesters to do anything, including beating people with no arrests or anyone identified.

    What DiBlasio has wrought (well, one of the things he has caused by his socialist meddling):

    WiFi Kiosks Have Become Living Rooms For Vagrants

    Hey, itโ€™s cheaper than getting an apartment.

    Bums have been turning the cityโ€™s free curbside Wi-Fi kiosks into their own personal living rooms, setting up chairs, watching movies โ€” and guzzling liquor until they vomit.

    One man set up a mini camp โ€” complete with a couch, newspaper-bin footrest and umbrella ceiling โ€” next to one of the high-tech huts in Murray Hill, gripped Christine Smith, 24, who lives near the Third Avenue location.

    The plugged-in vagrant lived there for three weeks, she told The Post.

    โ€œIt was essentially his living room. He had a stereo he would plug in and would be playing all the time, and he would be charging all of his devices,โ€™โ€™ Smith said. …

      The Wi-Fi hot spots allow free unlimited online access to the public, as well as USB charging ports and gratis domestic phone calls.

      The city plans to install nearly 8,000 of the kiosks across the five boroughs in the next seven years. About 400 are currently up and running, mostly on Third and Eighth avenues in Manhattan.

        And what a perfect way for that HUGE NYC police/intel lashup to compromise your commo/computer devices! You voluntarily patch into a city-provided charging and communications hub…see where I’m going?

          All Electronics has a unique ID in them. If you change it in a mobile phone you can go to prison and owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. You need to have software, carefully controlled by the hardware manufactures to change the ID on a computer, but I don’t believe they’ll put you in jail for it.


          • czarowniczy says:

            What I was getting at was you are voluntarily joining into a NYC communications point. Just like when you voluntarily log into a public wifi site you have no idea who is doing what with your information, who’s putting what into your dystem, no idea at all.
            I’m sure that NYC provides a short, inclusive and non-legalese crystal clear user agreement agreement, wouldn’t do anything less, eh? Computer privacy companies have been reporting hi-tech state of the art tracking devices in the computers of people eho’ve innocently visited some government sites, the White House site specifically, CIA and some DoD less frequently. Might the paranoid NYC police state system have horrowed a page from the Fed agencies thrybsomclosely coordinate with, even perhaps beta test for them? Not as if NYC has a clean record.

    โ€œI need her berry and she takes that thing to every bilat [bilateral meeting], to the shower, so hard to get my hands on that thing,โ€ Abedin told Mills.

    โ€œThis made me laugh out loud โ€” especially the shower part,โ€ Mills replied.

    Now what could go wrong.

    Why does the Muslim Huma want her nose in every aspect of Hillaryโ€™s communications? Why does a women who has familia terrorist ties and who was an assistant director for a magazine that promotes Sharia Law have access to US secrets.

    โ€จAnd now the more dangerous position for either Aledin or Mills is that Hillary knows that they mocked her behind her back.

    Hillary is going to crash and burn, she knows that she can never trust anyone but Hillary had to have confidence in Huma. Which mens Huma is and has been playing to Hillaryโ€™s vanity all along and sees her as a necessary evil to a goal.

    What could that goal be?

    From Sharyl Attkisson on Zika funds:
    โ€œWhy arenโ€™t billions of dollar in available tax money being used to fight Zika? Thatโ€™s what Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) are asking the Obama Administration in a new letter.โ€
    โ€œWe urge you to act and use funding available to ensure our nation is prepared.โ€“Senatorsโ€™ letter to HHSโ€
    โ€œThe Senators say Health and Human Services has been โ€œslow to distributeโ€ $589 million left over from the Ebola crisis. And they refer to a July letter previously noting that government officials have authority to transfer and reprogram money to respond. They say there are more than $20 billion in unobligated funds.โ€
    โ€œThe CDC has linked a Zika form of birth defect. Other scientists differ on whether thereโ€™s a connection.โ€

    LOL, I’m watching the raw feed from the channel 7 helicopter and they cut away to watch the Dreamliner land. Everett, WA has changed a lot since I had clients up there in the early 90’s. I don’t think that arena was up there.

    I like how the police have their backs to the hate filled Trump supporters and are facing the peaceful lines of spit scream chanting protesters. Also the aerial shot of the news camera crews only setting up at the protester area.

    “Prager U: Every High School Principal Should Say This”
    “If Dennis Prager were principal, he’d begin the school year by telling his students that identity politics will not be tolerated on campus, English will be spoken in the classrooms, and extra-curricular activities will encourage students to think beyond their race and ethnicity. See the full-text of this fantasy speech below:”

    Despite misgivings, judge allows Oregon standoff defendants Ryan Bundy, Ken Medenbach to represent themselves

    She cautioned him one more time: He’d be subject to immediate revocation of his right to represent himself if he raises any issue before the jury that the court has ruled was inadmissible.

    “Is that clear?” Brown asked.

    “Understood,” he said.

    My bet is that Ryan doesn’t make it past his opening statement before his right to defend himself is revoked.
