Guides to avoid getting your packages stolen during the holidays

Tired of having your UPS package stolen or lost from your front door or porch? Tired of tedious and lengthy recovering your missing FedEx package? Tired of dealing with endless and fruitless USPS delivery complaints?

You are not alone. According to package theft statistics, each year more than 23 million Americans (shocking!!!) have their packages stolen. More than 4000 customers filed complaints against shipping companies according to Consumer Affairs.

During the holiday season, package thieves are on the move. How can you avoid your Amazon, UPS, FedEx, USPS or eBay package from being stolen from your front door and prevent package missing while you are away enjoying your holiday?

Fortunately, there are AMAZING TIPS to help prevent your package from being stolen from front door or porch, especially after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday.



1) Use Smart Package Lockers or Convenience Store

To avoid your Amazon package being stolen from your front porch, use Amazon Locker. Amazon now allows you to pick up your delivery in Amazon Locker in selected locations across the country with a unique code, which you can punch into the machine to retrieve your package.

When putting down your shipping address on Amazon, check out if the Amazon locker is available in your region or not. If so, the Amazon locker will be the safest and convenient place to secure your Amazon package.

If your community doesn’t have an Amazon Locker, and you are a frequent online shopper, use The UPS Store, check the availability of lockers in nearby convenience stores, Kiosks or buy your own digital locker to secure your package or share a locker with your neighbors or friends.

2) Have Packages Delivered to Your Workplace

We have heard many people complaining about package thieves or bad neighbors sneaking around the street and looting drop-off deliveries, irresponsible mailman or carriers leaving packages on the front door without even knocking or ringing the door, pre-signing your delivery without your consent, or delaying home delivery by sending notifications too early.

It’s so frustrating. But if you have your package delivered to your office or friends’ houses that you trust and will be there to get your package will help stop package theft and missing.



3) Install a Front Door Security Camera to Prevent Package Theft

Security cameras pointing at your front door, hallway or driveway is better than no camera at all. A security camera will serve as a great deterrent for criminals and it helps to prevent package theft, especially visible HD security camera like RLC-410 bullet security camera.

Make sure you choose HD CCTV surveillance cameras at least 1080p to make a positive identification when package theft happens, like 5MP Super HD wireless front door security camera RLC-422W, for example, Reolink HD security camera RLC-410 captured package theft in broad daylight.

You might ask some thieves stole the unattended packages even though the surveillance camera is rolling. So how can we stop them from stealing your package? A good solution is buying a front door security camera packed with built-in siren, HD resolution, and motion sensor, like Reolink Argus motion-sensor security camera.

Meanwhile, front door security cameras either wireless front door camera or wired security camera help you to remotely view your front porch when you are unavailable to retrieve your package, rerouting, rescheduling or requiring signature delivery without the presence of notices or trusted neighbor.

Package thieves will be charged with theft, property crime or other offenses, for example, If a porch poacher steals USPS package, he or she is subject to serious criminal consequences including federal prison time and fines.



4) Require Signature on Delivery

Many customers grumble about delivery man signing the unauthorized packages and leaving them wide open on the porch or doorstep, making them desirable for package snatcher.

To prevent your package being stolen off the porch, ask for signature delivery. If your package is delivered by UPS, consult your sender and require delivery confirmation signature.

Signature-required delivery should be strictly followed by couriers. If your package was left unattended, or even worse, lost, because they didn’t follow the protocol, delivery companies are liable to legal actions and you are entitled to a full refund or replacement if you didn’t get a proof of delivery when you demand delivery by signature.

5) Reroute or Reschedule Delivery

If you are not sure whether or not you are home from holiday to receive your package when the delivery truck pulls up to your front door. You can track shipment information either on package tracking app or order information in advance. Make a phone call to the delivery man or call your neighbors or friends to help receive the package.

Both UPS and FedEx offer web apps to help reroute parcel to another address and reschedule your package delivery at your convenience for a fee, for example, FedEx’s Delivery Manager, and UPS My Choice premium membership for $40 a year.

If you are using other delivery services, online shipment tracking information will be available. Notifying the driver in advance online when your package is due is reassuring.



6) Require Vacation Package Hold

Finally going away for holiday, you can place a hold on your package to keep your parcel safe. Many delivery companies such as USPS and FedEx offer a free service to uphold your package at their terminals or delivery centers for a period of time.

To check FedEx delivery options for free online and free USPS mail holding service here to apply for a package holiday hold online without worrying about lost package or package being stolen off the doorstep. While UPS will charge $5 for every package rescheduled or delivered to a UPS retail location on UPS My Choice.

7) Insure Your Upcoming Packages

I bet you don’t want to go through all the troubles to get your missing package back after an amazing holiday.

So insuring your precious holiday parcel, for example, Halloween costume, Thanksgiving gifts or Christmas packages in the first place will guarantee you reimbursement if unfortunately your delivery was stolen or lost before you lay your hand on it.



8) Get a Package Guard for Your Delivery

An entrepreneur from the USA has a simple solution to porch Christmas package missing - Package Guard, which is a Wi-Fi-enabled Frisbee-size device that requires the package to put on them on the porch, alerting a customer when a package has been delivered to their house.

And, more importantly, it triggers a loud alarm if anyone unauthorized tries to take the package away, which is similar to the mechanism in a smart security camera.

With this newly-design gadget combined with your home security system, your package will be safer when it lies on the front door.

Why some people don't really want to be nice

Human beings are multifaceted. It's possible to be nice and assertive at the same time. I'm very kind to people, but I don't behave in a way that would betray my values for the sake of being "nice". we shouldn't mistake kindness for weakness.

"The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system...

And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second." - John Steinbeck

President Trump's bold plan for the final frontier

President Donald Trump wants to send astronauts where no man has gone before.

Trump authorized the acting NASA administrator Robert M. Lightfoot Jr. to "lead an innovative space exploration program to send American astronauts back to the moon, and eventually Mars" during a White House signing ceremony.

Standing with retired astronauts and Vice President Mike Pence, Trump touted the initiative as the first step in establishing a foundation on the moon for "an eventual mission to Mars and perhaps someday to many worlds beyond."

"The directive I am signing today will refocus America's space program on human exploration and discovery," Trump said.

"It marks an important step in returning American astronauts to the moon for the first time since 1972 for long-term exploration and use. This time we will not only plan on flag and leave our footprint."

Liberalism in America is a big fat lie! Liberals talk about "our values" but their corrupt, divisive, liberal values… are not America’s values!

Hillary Clinton’s defeat is precisely what it seems to be: a rejection not only of the Democratic Party but of contemporary warped, corrosive liberalism. Not only did Clinton lose, but Obama’s legacy was also rejected as an epic failure.

Democrats today may see themselves as heirs to a progressive tradition that traces its lineage back to racist Woodrow Wilson. But that does not describe the Democratic Party that elevated Obama and Hillary Clinton to the position of standard bearer.

Today’s version of progressivism represented by Obama and Clinton accommodates present-day Godless criminality and hate. Rather than trying to build America up, Democrats now willfully create division and tear America down.

Even after losing the election, the divisive Democrat party still doesn’t get it. Corrupt Democrats and the corrupt liberal media have doubled down on their lies and division. The moral of the story… never, ever trust a liberal!

Here are some of devious Democrat's "schemes" for the week... 12/15/2017

Democrats frequently spew, “There is systemic racism in America.” That’s true… and it is they - the Democrats and Liberals - who are the instigators of systemic racism.

The liberal science to exterminate blacks

The Democrat/Liberal Agenda to Exterminate Blacks! Why are 80% of abortion clinics in black communities? Margaret Sanger, Crooked Hillary's & Dem's idol, called black people weeds that must be exterminated!

This video lecture documents the pattern of heavy metals poisoning, medical experimentation, organ harvesting, covert fertility task forces and other tactics that seek to eliminate blacks from our planet.

These genocidal tactics are carried out in the name of science and medicine via the following vectors:

Food supply (laced with infertility chemicals, confirmed by the New York Times quoting a U.S. President's science advisor) Water supply (heavy metals poisoning, as we recently witnessed in Flint, Michigan) Medical experimentation (Tuskegee, Guatemalan prisoner experiments funded by the U.S. government, etc.)



Immunization campaign (covert sterilization of young women in Africa) Cancer (disproportionately affects people of darker skin color due to vitamin D deficiency) Abortion activities that target blacks in order to harvest baby organ tissue for use in vaccines -- medical cannibalism.

This is heartbreaking. I almost turned your video off because it hurts my heart. But the truth needs to come out, and I need to hear it. Everyone needs to hear this. The people doing these evil acts, do they not have children? How would they feel if it was them that was being the target of this?

This sickens me...why are people so demonic.. I mean what kind of normal human being lacks humanity to the point the even kill Innocent young children.

The Real Terrorists are not in some foreign country. They are right here at home , the LIBERAL, DEEP-STATE government. There is no need to convince me. I've seen the damage and everyone is dying and getting sick around me. The sad part is… the majority of black citizens are in denial and aren't waking up.

College recruits 'Care Bears' to comfort student snowflakes?

A dorm display at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst is using Care Bears to help students who feel “grumpy or stressed.”

“Feeling grumpy or stressed? Let the Care Bears help!” the display states above a large, hand-drawn rainbow adorned with bit of advice for students.

“It’s important to take care of ourselves! Self-care is an active choice and you should treat it as such,” one section proclaims, while other suggest that students “surround yourselves with supportive people” and “reminders of what you love.”

The display also suggests goofing around with friends, making time for fun, eating healthy, and getting enough sleep.

YouTube liberals censor Polish government's video... which exposes Europe's catastrophic Muslim migrant invasion

The Polish government has fallen victim to YouTube’s selective censorship crackdown after the information giant banished a video exposing Europe’s manufactured migrant crisis to ‘limited state’ limbo.

The video is titled, “Europe opens its eyes and admits us right,” and was posted by Poland’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration.

Its description reads - “The PiS government withdrew from the harmful decision of the PO-PSL government to bring immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa to Poland. We were the first to say that not every immigrant is a refugee, and only a few flee from war and terror...

Two years after the Polish government's opposition to the admission of illegal immigrants, EU leaders are beginning to understand the absurd policy of compulsory relocation of refugees.”

The video features headlines and footage highlighting various ways the EU's open borders policies are endangering European civilization, and also demonstrates that Poland's ruling party, Law and Justice (PiS), has been taking drastic measures to protect the Polish people while clashing regularly with authoritarian bullies in Brussels.



"This problem is connected with what the west of Europe is struggling with - decades of a policy of multiculturalism and political correctness," says Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak in the video. "Our government chooses a responsible way to fight the problem of illegal immigration."

Incredibly, the short presentation has been flagged as “age inappropriate,” and many standard YouTube features for the video are deactivated, including the comments section, sharing and embedding options, view count, and user rating.

This diminished status is known as ‘limited state,’ a virtual purgatory for content deemed as ‘offensive’ or ‘extremist’ by faceless information gatekeepers who regularly target subject matter that challenges the globalist-mainstream narrative - such as the ‘refugee crisis’ and all the propaganda that fuels it.

"Some borderline videos, such as those containing inflammatory religious or supremacist content without a direct call to violence or a primary purpose of inciting hatred, may not cross these lines for removal," YouTube explains in their policy center.

"Following user reports, if our review teams determine that a video is borderline under our policies, it may have some features disabled."



The video is below - but you'll have to jump through a few more hoops just to watch it.

I have been kicked off of FB for a week now after I posted one of Alex Jones stories on different pages. Conservative Christian getting my freedom of speech revoked. The government will ruin the internet and there will be no freedom to say anything. Wake up America. When it is gone, our freedoms, they will not come back.

Google, Facebook, and Youtube , are all actively suppressing all voices that speak out against globalism and enforced mass immigration. Pretty soon, only the liberal, left-wing, narrative will be allowed. Welcome to democracy USSR style.

64 million idiotic DEMOCRATS were baited & switched from Bernie, then duped into voting for rapist-murderess-sociopath Hillary? These are all the proof we need to see that even without a commie government to back them, the Libtard dumb-asses are plenty destructive enough, simply voting Crooked Hillary en masse.

Why has California become such a hell-hole? Corrupt government, Record debt, Exploding homeless illegal immigrant population, Fires

Alex Jones calls upon his audience to send their prayers to California as the states' wildfires burn across the countryside, but he also asks the question, how did this happen to California?

California is such a hellhole because of it's liberal policies. The current wildfires, and coming earthquakes - are punishment for their liberalism. The punishment will only get worse. People should leave California while they still can.

Not all of the people in California are scum-bags. A lot of them disagree with what this state has become. Sad, because it is a beautiful state.

ALABAMA VOTE WAS NOT ABOUT THE ISSUES... OR PRESIDENT TRUMP

Republican Roy Moore lost the election for Alabama Senator on Tuesday. He should have won - it's a solid Republican state and President Trump won the state by twenty-eight percent.

However, there were multiple forces against Judge Moore: Liar Liberals defamed his reputation with unproven sexual accusations - manipulating the women's vote, Liar Liberals mislead Alabama black voters - suggesting Moore was a racist, and corrupt Republican RINOs joined the Libs attack on Moore.

In other words... this Lib corrupted Alabama election was decided - totally on false accusations and reputation destruction... NOT ON THE ISSUES! Hopefully President Trump and his supporters will prepare for these same 'Non-Issue' personal attacks in the 2018 elections.

The first thing you see when you enter the Trump White House... sends a powerful message that our military personnel are very important

Thousands of people will visit the White House for the holidays and take self-guided tour through executive mansion.

Some will be visiting the White House as invited guests, others because their member of Congress booked them on a tour, and others will be there for an official function. However, they will all have something in common: The first thing they see when they enter the White House.

Virtually all white house tours begin in the East wing. As visitors walk through security and up to the colonnade, the historic features of the White House are in full view.

After entering the White House through the eastern entrance, guests are welcomed by greeters and handed a brochure about the various displays in the home.



However, before going any further, the attendant will point your attention to specific tree that sits at the top of the stairway, better known as The Gold Star tree.

The Gold Star tree honors the families of fallen American service members. It is covered in patriotic ribbon and golden stars with a large gold star on top.

The tree also honors active duty service members in a very special way. The tree includes four iPad stations, where visitors may write messages to active duty service members for the holidays. These messages will then be sent to troops serving abroad who will not be able to be home for Christmas.

This is not the first time that the White House has honored our service members with decorations. However, this bold, up-front attempt to honor and encourage the troops will surely be appreciated.

KABOOM! Trump's deportation squad wins big!

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency announced Tuesday the arrest of 101 illegal immigrants, targeting criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration violators, and including immigrants convicted of drug- and child-pornography-related offenses.

The arrests were the product of a five-day operation in New Jersey, spearheaded by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Among those arrested, 88 percent were convicted criminals, and 80 percent had prior felony convictions.

Convictions of those arrested included a Mexican citizen convicted of sexual assault of a minor, a Turkish citizen convicted of possession of child pornography, a Spanish citizen convicted of storing/maintaining child pornography, and a Dominican and Korean citizen both charged with cocaine distribution.

"The continued results of our Fugitive Operations officers and their law enforcement partners underscore ICE’s ongoing and steady commitment to public safety," said John Tsoukaris, field office director of ERO Newark.

"As part of this operation, we continue focus on the arrest of individuals who are criminal and are a threat to public safety and national security. Because of the tireless efforts of these professional officers, there are 101 fewer criminals in our communities."

Trying to remain relevant... Barbie embraces lame liberal virtue signaling. What next, Barbie reveals she's a transvestite?

According to a laudatory article published by FastCompany, Barbie dolls, whose sales have declined for years, are becoming woke with leftist tropes, and it’s not a moment too soon.

Writer Elizabeth Segran begins her tribute to the new, virtue-signaling Barbie by chortling:

Just before Thanksgiving this year, Barbie had her wokest moment yet. On the official BarbieStyle Instagram channel, she was pictured in a series of photos with another doll, Aimee, wearing T-shirts emblazoned with “Love Wins,” the slogan of the marriage equality movement. The posts were a tableaux of domesticity. 

In one, the pair is sitting cosily in Barbie’s walk-in closet, stroking a dog and staring into each others’ eyes. In another, they are eating avocado toast at their favorite Silver Lake café.

Not leftist enough for you? How about this: a September BarbieStyle Instagram account featured Barbie wearing a “People Are People” T-shirt designed by Christian Siriano to protest President Trump’s immigration ban.

A key part of Hitler's encryption device turned up on eBay

A key part of Hitler’s invaluable encryption device turned up on eBay. When the Nazis needed the highest possible level of encryption during WWII, they used the Lorenz machine.

It was far more complex than the more famous Enigma, and cracking it made D-Day successful. Being able to read Lorenz messages is how the Allies confirmed that the German high command didn't think there would be any landings at Normandy.

Britain's National Museum of Computing had most of the machine on loan from Norway, and only needed a few more components to rebuild it completely. One of the things they were missing was a teleprinter (think a typewriter, but with extra Nazism), which they were able to locate in 2016 by Indiana Jonesing their way into the sacred crypt of ... eBay?



A volunteer for the museum was casually browsing the auction site when he spotted a listing for a "telegram machine," on sale for the kingly sum of 9.50 pounds ($12.47). He grabbed a colleague and drove to the seller's home in Essex, where the device was kept under a layer of trash in a garden shed, but still in its original carrying case.

They gave the seller 10 pounds, told her to keep the change, and hauled ass to the museum. After they cleaned it up, they were certain that this was a genuine, military-issue Lorenz teleprinter, complete with decorative swastikas and even a nifty special key just for typing the Waffen-SS symbol.

We're surprised they weren't outbid by 8chan for that feature alone.

Robot wages war on the homeless, the homeless fight back

The fleet of laser-equipped robots patrolling parking lots and company campuses in San Francisco has met resistance from the city's homeless population, after one machine was deployed to prevent tent encampments from forming. 

According to the San Francisco Business Times, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals began using one of the robots in its parking lots and along the sidewalks around its premises in early November to prevent homeless people from settling there.

But within a week, people attempting to set up a camp took offense at the robot and attacked it. SPCA President Jennifer Scarlett told the publication that the people “put a tarp over [the robot], knocked it over and put barbecue sauce on all the sensors.”

Scarlett added, “I can understand being scared about a new technology on the street, and we should be asking questions about it, but we should probably be a little bit angry that a nonprofit has to spend so much on security at the same time.”

Some local residents also reportedly took issue with the robots, saying the machines disturb their pets and pose a danger to public safety.



China's first robotic crime fighter, known as AnBot, has certain features similar to the lead character of the 1987 movie "RoboCop."

Fran Taylor, who works with pedestrian advocacy group Walk San Francisco, said the robots were also an invasion of privacy and “an obvious attack on the very people in San Francisco who are already having such a hard time surviving in this expensive city.”

The city’s Department of Public Works has since issued the SPCA a warning not to operate the robots on sidewalks and other public right-of-ways “without a proper approval,” or else risk a fine of up to $1,000 per day.

China's first robotic crime fighter, known as AnBot, has certain features similar to the lead character of the 1987 movie "RoboCop." SE

Microsoft and Uber are among the companies tasking autonomous robots with supplementing security guards on their premises, which they rent from California startup Knightscope for $7 per hour - considerably lower than a security guard's hourly wage.

Knightscope says the K5 robot employed by these companies is “best suited for securing outdoor spaces” by “working together with human eyes.”



China's 1st intelligent security robot debuts; can patrol autonomously, protect against riot.

A similar security robot equipped with weapons has been demonstrated in China, potentially pointing to the direction such autonomous machines are taking. 

The AnBot, developed at China’s National Defense University, was described by local media last year as the country’s first “intelligent security robot” and came equipped with “sensors that mimic the human brain, eyes and ears.” In the future, AnBot’s developers hope, it will be deployed in areas prone to civil unrest or violence.

“AnBot has a high degree of autonomy,” said Xiao Xiangjiang from the National Defense University. “It can patrol, avoid obstacles, identify and recharge on its own. It is equipped with weapons to prevent and control violence by remote control. Moreover, it could be a service provider, which makes it more practical.”

Maybe in the SPCA actually hired one or two security guards instead of giving that task to a machine, there would be one or two less homeless people trying to camp on their property.

Clear religious discrimination. So glad these kids are suing and fighting back. It's only our country - as long as we fight for it. FIGHT FOR AMERICA!

Christian student group fights back... sues after being unfairly discriminated against and getting kicked off college campus

A Christian student group sued the University of Iowa Monday after the school kicked it off campus for requiring its student officers to hold the same religious beliefs.

The Business Leaders in Christ, which seeks to foster a discussion regarding how students can incorporate Christianity into business environments, sued the university, along with a few individual administrators for religious discrimination, according to a press release from Becket, the religious liberty group serving as the plaintiff’s counsel.

“This is premeditated religious discrimination, plain and simple,” said Eric Baxter, the Becket senior counsel representing the student group. “A state school cannot demand a change to students’ faith any more than the U.S. President could demand a change to the Bible.”

Business Leaders in Christ alleges the University of Iowa said the group could pick officers that share the group’s religious beliefs, as long as the group were transparent about those beliefs when soliciting students. While Business Leaders in Christ asserts it followed these instructions, it claims the school booted it from the campus anyway.

“This is 2017, not 1984,” said Jacob Estell, the group’s student president. “Our beliefs weren’t made by us, and they can’t be changed by us either - certainly not just to satisfy Orwellian government rules.”



Business Leaders in Christ notes that the university de-registered the group in 2016 after a student alleged denial of leadership in the group because he was “openly gay.”

However, the group asserts the charge was inaccurate and it did not approve the student because he explicitly refused to follow the group’s religious beliefs. The student was told the “decision was not because he was gay, but because he did not agree with the group’s biblically views on sexual conduct,” namely, abstinence from same-sex relationships.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the University of Iowa for comment, but received none in time for press.

REALITY CHECK FROM CHRISTIAN STUDENTS... "So how is it for Christians on College Campuses?"

So, how tough is it on college campuses these days for Christian students? Pretty grim, as evidenced by lawsuits colleges keep losing.

I am from Iowa and I can tell you this, when I lived there this would not have went over at all, people would have protested at the college. Why is it that these colleges are allowed to give rooms to Muslim students for praying - but are against even mentioning the word God in any and all things.



Tolerant my butt!. They receive tax dollars too, any that allow Muslims prayer room should be closed as Religion is not allowed to be taught in public schools the Supreme Court has already settled this...

Yet these colleges are breaking this law everyday with these prayer rooms, why should our tax dollars for education be spent on Muslims religion, that is also against the law. Every Christian students should demand that chapels also be placed on campus, and any other religion should also demand that they have a room as well.

As soon as all the money is going to these causes this would stop. Fight fire with fire. Then these college would not be able to afford to give our tax dollars to illegals for free education this is also against the law as to help illegals in any way is against the law.

Ask yourself if the University would duplicate this action if the group were Muslim students? You bet your ass they would not. This is an attack on Christianity by a school that began as a Christian Institution. But it's all about tolerance. Regressive leftists... nothing but hypocrites and fascists.

Our universities are little better than open, festering liberal sewers and should be shut down entirely, then rebuilt from the ground up, staffed only with native born Americans who believe in Jesus Christ and the Constitution.

Bad news and Good news

The attorney tells the accused, “I have some good news and some bad news.”

“What’s the bad news?” asks the accused.

“The bad news is, your blood is all over the crime scene, and the DNA tests prove you did it.”

“What’s the good news?”

“Your cholesterol is 130.”

President Trump’s decision to have the United States recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was not taken in a vacuum. It was another step in changing the moribund Palestinian-Israel “peace process” into something else. What else is not clear, but the intention and the antecedents are.

The intention is to disabuse the Palestinians of the notion that the U.S. is neutral between them and our democratic, pro-Western, tolerant, free-market ally Israel. Clarity will actually make the U.S. an honest broker in any future negotiations – honest being the operative word. Our support for Palestinian aspirations is conditional on their behavior.

As for antecedents… Israel’s requirements in any “process” have long been the safeguards guaranteed by UN Resolution 242: “Termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgment of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State...

In the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force.” Where the boundaries are negotiable; Israel’s capital in an undivided Jerusalem is not, though the formulation leaves a bit of room for politics.

Current Palestinian requirements are an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza without giving legitimacy to Israel’s sovereignty anywhere. The Palestinian Liberation Organization Covenant, like that of Hamas, claims Palestine in the whole British Mandate territory, including the Kingdom of Jordan.

For now, however, the Palestinian Authority slogan is “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea,” meaning all of Israel, and that is what they teach their children.



With that knowledge, when Netanyahu visited the White House in February 2017, Trump laid down two markers for the Palestinians: “Palestinians have to get rid of some of that hate they’re taught from a very young age. They’re taught tremendous hate. I’ve seen what they’re taught… it starts at a very young age and it starts in the schoolroom.

“And they have to acknowledge Israel — they’re going to have to do that. There’s no way a deal can be made if they’re not ready to acknowledge a very, very great and important country.”

Mahmoud Abbas, standing with Mr. Trump on 3 May, never mentioned Palestinian recognition of Israel and openly lied about teaching veneration for violence.

“Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace. And we are endeavoring to bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world, along with the Israeli children in peace, freedom and security.”

It was not an auspicious start for Abbas. In an attempt to recover, shortly before the President visited the region later in May, the Palestinians dropped their 8-year-old insistence on a “settlement freeze” before negotiations. That did not correspond to the President’s requirements and Mr. Trump avoided Ramallah.

In September, the President declared his support for the Taylor Force Act, introduced in February but picking up steam in the fall session of Congress. In 2016, U.S. Army veteran Taylor Force war murdered and several others wounded by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv.



The killer was hailed on official PA media outlets as a “martyr,” an echo of earlier remarks by Abbas on PA TV. “We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.”

Rewards are actual money. The Palestinian Authority pays salaries to terrorists in Israeli jails and to the families of dead terrorists. It is PA law – the more dead Jews, Israelis or friends of Israel, the more money. Taylor Force will end American budgetary support to the PA and its “pay for slay” fund.

In November, the administration made a not-so-veiled threat to close the PLO mission in Washington. It opened in 1994 with conditions attached – primarily that PA adhere to its commitment not to use international institutions, including the UN and International Criminal Court, to force Israel to make concessions that were not agreed upon in negotiations.

In June, when Israel was debating a bill similar to the Taylor Force Act, Saleh Rafat, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said the Palestinians would take Israel to the ICC “protect its payments.” Rafat called the Knesset bill “unacceptable” and accused Israel of “piracy” and “stealing” the PA’s money.

So finally, in December, came formal recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. What’s next?

American support for Palestinians aspirations is not withdrawn, but hinges on Palestinian behavior. If the Palestinians can’t meet American requirements, they will have undermined themselves and their people (again). They can’t say it wasn’t clear.

Phony Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is a Clinton Clone

Phony Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand… after colluding with the Clintons for decades and taking their tainted funds, Gillibrand condemns Slick-Willie.

Kirsten Gillibrand is Hillary Clinton without decades of experience… covering up for her husband’s rapes, leaving four people to die in Benghazi, and wiping servers with a cloth or something. That we know of.

Gillibrand’s writing staff has portrayed her as a lab concocted hybrid, taking the screech of Lena Dunham, and inserting it into the ova of Tracy Glick. A character from the movie Election.

Look how brave Gillibrand is, calling out Bill Clinton. Twenty years, several elections, and long after young voters actually care. Coincidentally, in those twenty years after the fact, little Ms Kirsten has taken money from Billy Boy Clinton. So calling him out twenty years later... is as brave as installing a stop sign in the middle of the Sahara.



Kirsten Gillibrand is another case of big mouth and no brains. She just yammers without ever saying anything of logical or creative value.

She's just another Democrat hack - lifting herself up by pretending to be morally outraged - and trying to forward the Democrat, ant-American agenda on hate and lies.

That agenda is about NOTHING but undermining the American democratic election process, which they were all adamantly accusing Trump of as a candidate, because he would not tell them up front that he would concede immediately on election night...

Even though the whole country knew the election was rigged, evidenced by what happened to Bernie Sanders. These days, democrats sitting in a hypocritical saddle on a high horse of phony outrage, are about a dime a dozen. They've all turned into Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

San Francisco housing prices are SO HIGH... people are paying $2400.00 a month for 200sf boiler-rooms and basements

San Francisco housing prices are so bad that people are now paying $2,400 for 220 feet boiler rooms and basements, according to a report published Sunday.

Due to pricey housing options, people are now opting to pay $2,400 for an apartment carved out of a basement or boiler room, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.

These small spaces are referred to as accessory dwelling units or ADUs. In the first nine months of the year, property owners applied to create 593 units, more than double the 242 ADUs applied for in 2016. So far, 531 buildings were approved.



“Pretty much every multi-unit building with crappy old storage rooms is taking a look at this. You’ve got all these property owners that realize they are sitting on dead equity,” John Pollard of the SF Garage Co., a contractor whose clients are either building or waiting for permits for over 300 AUDs, told the SF Chronicle.

At one residency at 735 Taylor St. on lower Nob Hill, Veritas Investments, a landlord is adding seven new units that were previously dining halls and a common kitchen. They are between 220 and 381 square feet and will rent between $2,400 and $2,800 per month.

The ADUs cost about $300,000 to $400,000 a unit to construct. While expensive, it is still cheaper than construction on a full unit in San Francisco which is usually $600,000, said Veritas Investment President Yat-Pang Au told the SF Chronicle.

“We are very happy to see the large apartment buildings are taking advantage of this,” added Kimia Haddadan, policy and legislative planner with the San Francisco Planning Department. Au also said that he is planning on adding 200-400 more ADU’s in 100 buildings over the next five years.

Top FBI leaders implicated in Anti-Trump plot... Clinton and Obama corrupted the FBI and conspired to overthrow government

Breaking reports have implicated top FBI officials in plotting an anti-Trump "insurance policy" if Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election.

FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was a lead investigator on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian involvement in the election, was kicked off Mueller's team after revelations Strzok sent anti-Trump text messages to his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

While the FBI has tried to downplay Strzok's wrongdoing, a new text – from Strzok to Page –implicates an FBI agent even higher up the chain."

Fox News reporter Bret Baier revealed the bombshell, tweeting: "Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): 'I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy's office--that there's no way [Trump] gets elected--but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40.'"



Strzok and McCabe conspired to overthrow Trump Presidency

Andrew McCabe, referenced in Strozk's text, is the Deputy Director of the FBI. Moreover, he served as the Acting FBI Director from May to August of this year, after Trump fired former Director James Comey.

Strzok's latest text reveals that Page and Strzok at least considered plotting an unknown "insurance policy" to cripple Trump if he beat Hillary Clinton.

While the text doesn't reveal whether or not McCabe was a participant in the conversation, it seems highly unlikely that Page and Strzok could have a lengthy discussion in the Deputy Director of the FBI's office unsupervised.

McCabe's possible implication in a plot to bring down the President - could have significant repercussions moving forward. But, at the very least, it's sure to hurt the reputation of the ailing FBI, which has seen its credibility plummet over its response to the Russia investigation.

Thought for the day...



Trump has set a Judicial confirmation record in first year.

Democrats thought Obama was stacking the courts with corrupt liberals... then Trump showed up

Democrats thought Obama was stacking the courts with corrupt liberals… then Trump showed up

The Senate confirmed three judicial nominees to federal appeals courts this week, rounding out a record-setting year-long confirmation gamut.

The nominees, Leonard Grasz, Don Willett, and James Ho were appointed to the 5th and 8th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal. The Senate has cleared 12 nominations to the circuit courts since President Donald Trump assumed office, a record for the modern era.

All three nominees were confirmed on narrow party-line votes, and they mark the culmination of a remarkably successful confirmation effort. Trump has secured 12 circuit court confirmations this year, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

By way of comparison, former President Barack Obama had just three circuit court confirmations during the first year of his administration — former President George W. Bush had six, and former President Bill Clinton had three.



Circuit courts are federal appeals courts that review decisions made by federal trial courts. Since the Supreme Court hears approximately 80 cases each year, circuit courts render final decisions in overwhelming majority of cases.

As of this writing, there are currently 144 vacancies on the federal courts, according to the Judicial Conference of the United States.

The Willett and Ho nominations were championed by GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, as both men will serve on federal courts in Texas.

“I have known the both of them for decades,” Cruz said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “Both are close friends. Both are brilliant lawyers. Both have spent decades earning a reputation as principled constitutionalists who will remain faithful to the law and will not impose their own policy preferences from the bench.”

Prior to his nomination, Ho served as Texas’ appellate advocate before entering private practice at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, while Willett served for a decade on the Texas Supreme Court.



President Trump will remake America's courts to uphold true conservative American values.

Willett’s judicial writings attracted enthusiasm from libertarian legal circles. His 2015 opinion in Patel v. Texas Department of Licensing, he suggested courts should apply greater scrutiny to government regs of economic activity, is particularly popular in right-wing quarters. Also a prolific tweeter, he though his account has not been active since his nomination.

Grasz’s nomination elicited especially strong opposition from Democrats. The American Bar Association’s standing committee on the federal judiciary gave Grasz a unanimous “unqualified” rating, citing concerns about his judicial temperament.

Grasz was a lawyer for the Republican party before joining the Nebraska Attorney General’s office, where he generated memoranda reflecting socially conservative views about abortion and same sex marriage.

Conservative court-watchers lavished praise on the nominees after their confirmations. “They will uphold the Constitution and fairly apply the law,” said Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network.

“As the president continues to nominate exceptional individuals to the federal bench, I look forward to the Senate quickly confirming them to fill the many remaining judicial vacancies so they can serve the public for years to come.”

EXCELLENT! Go get 'em, President Trump - fill EVERY vacancy with Conservatives! MAGA!
