Trump is sending armed tactical forces to arrest immigrants in sanctuary cities - including my home town!


 The Trump administration is reportedly sending armed and highly trained law enforcement units to sanctuary cities across the country to support US Immigration and Customs Enforcement in carrying out immigration raids.

As first reported by the New York Times, 100 US Customs and Border Protection officers, including those from the SWAT-like Border Patrol Tactical Unit, will be deployed from February through May across nine sanctuary cities: Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, and Newark, NJ.

Border Patrol Tactical Unit agents receive special training for high-risk law enforcement activities, including sniper certification and other advanced weapons training. Their primary charge has been tracking down drug traffickers on the US-Mexico border, where violence can often break out, but now they will also be responsible for conducting routine immigration arrests in some of America’s largest cities, according to the Times.

It’s just the latest instance in which President Donald Trump has sought to target sanctuary cities — which do not allow local law enforcement to share information with ICE or hand over immigrants in their custody — for refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Immigrants advocates say that the deployment is not only a waste of federal law enforcement resources, it also might endanger immigrant communities.

“This is transparent retaliation against local governments for refusing to do the administration’s bidding,” Naureen Shah, senior policy and advocacy counsel on immigrants’ rights for the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement. “It will put lives at risk by further militarizing our streets.”

Alex Rodriguez may end up 
buying the Mets.


If you thought the soap-opera sale of the New York Mets couldn’t get any crazier after the Steve Cohen debacle, they were A-Rod levels of wrong.
According to multiple sources, the newest name to emerge as a potential suitor to buy the Mets is none other than Alex Rodriguez. Baseball and Wall Street insiders told The Post that the controversial former Yankees superstar is “kicking the tires” on the idea of getting into an upcoming auction for the team. This comes after Cohen, the billionaire hedge fund manager, walked away from a $2.6 billion deal for 80 percent of the team last week upon learning that the Wilpon family would not be surrendering control for the first five years of his ownership.
While sources told The Post that Cohen has not yet fully given up on his chances of purchasing the Mets, rumors of A-Rod’s interest have intensified.

Astronomers will sweep the entire sky for signs of extraterrestrial life for the first time, using 28 giant radio telescopes in an unprecedented hunt for alien civilisations.
The project is a collaboration between the privately-funded Seti Institute and the Very Large Array observatory in New Mexico, one of the world’s most powerful radio observatories. Gaining real-time access to all the data gathered by VLA is considered a major coup for scientists hunting extraterrestrial lifeforms and an indication that the field has “gone mainstream”.
Normal astronomy operations will continue at the VLA, which was featured in the 1997 film Contact, but under the new arrangement all data will be duplicated and fed through a dedicated supercomputer that will search for beeps, squawks or other signatures of distant technology.

Too bad Watterson ran out of mojo on this strip - I don't know there'll ever be one better. Here's a great way to keep C&H's legacy alive.

As a kid we'd sit at the dining room table with my mom and help her paste the stamps in to the books. Those stamps were coveted in those days.

I've shown you this before but I think it's worth re-posting. I never had any idea how good - and how versatile - a knife this really is. It's most certainly worth a look at least.

We are a country with deep flaws and a troubling history, yet still the greatest, free-est society ever created. Remember that when you see stupid shit going on around you.

  1. My mother was queer for S&H and Blue Chip trading stamps. You could get them at any grocery
    store, gas station, and dozens of other businesses. She also collected the glasses with
    Warner Brothers cartoon characters that came free with a fill-up at the gas station. I
    must have been 10 before I realized that plain drinking glasses existed. She grew up
    in the depression/WWII era and knew the value of money. She could scrimp and save with
    the best of them. She canned preserves and I can still make a killer milk based hamburger
    gravy (the civilian version of SOS.)

  2. We usta all sit around the dining room table with a wet sponge in a bowl and paste them in to the books. She got a LOT of stuff from that little stamp!
