ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES … GORSUCH SWORN INTO THE SCOTUS …
This is a good day for the Supreme Court of the United States and America.
Neil Gorsuch on Monday became the 101st associate justice of the Supreme Court and President Trump’s first high court appointee.
Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Gorsuch in the sun-soaked White House Rose Garden shortly after 11 a.m. Hours earlier, Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath in a private ceremony in the justices’ conference room at the court.
Kennedy said the oath Gorsuch took “reminds us that we as a people are bound together, that we as a people find our self-definition, our respect, our heritage and our destiny in the Constitution.”
Gorsuch’s wife, Louise, and two teenage daughters were present for the swearing-in ceremony.
Gorsuch, 49, was a member of the Colorado-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He is filling the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat, which has been vacant for more than a year after Republicans refused to hold a hearing or vote on former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland.
Passenger Dragged Off United Airlines Plane (VIDEO) … This is What CEO of United Airlines Calls “Re-accommodating” Customerss.
I WILL NEVER FLY UNITED AIRLINES EVER AGAIN!!!
So this is how United Airlines treats their paying customers? A 69 year old man was dragged off a plane in Chicago after the flight was overbooked. According to reports, the man refused to and claimed “he’s a doctor and has to be in Louisville in the morning to see patients.” So what did the thug United Airlines do? Why drag him off the plane against his will, while bloodying him up. UNREAL. How could this possibly be the right thing to do? Just curious, would they have done this to a politician if they were the one with the unlucky algorithm purchased ticket?
The disturbing scene captured on cellphone videos by United Airlines passengers on Sunday went beyond the typical nightmares of travelers on an overbooked flight.
An unidentified man who refused to be bumped from a plane screamed as a security officer wrestled him out of his seat and dragged him down the aisle by his arms. His glasses slid down his face, and his shirt rose above his midriff as uniformed officers followed.
The shocking scene raised questions about the common practice of overbooking and how far airlines will go to sell all of their seats. Particularly annoying, Mr. Bridges said, was that the airline was looking for extra seats for some of its employees.
This is a PR nightmare for Unites Airlines and it should be.
Really, the CEO of United Airlines defended theses actions and called this “re-accommodating” passengers? Hey Mr. CEO, I bet some airline passengers would like to “re-accommodate” you.
The CEO of United Airlines apologized to customers on Monday following an incident on an overbooked flight where video appeared to show an elderly man being dragged from his seat and through the aisle of a plane.
Several videos posted on social media appeared to show three law enforcement officers pull a screaming man from his seat on the plane and then drag him by the arms down the aisle as shocked passengers look on. A witness told NBC News the ordeal began after the airline said the flight was overbooked and asked four customers to leave the plane and take a flight the following day.
“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United,” CEO Oscar Munoz said in a statement. “I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened.”
“We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation,” he added in the statement.
The Chicago Department of Aviation said in a statement Monday afternoon that the incident was “not in accordance with” standard operating procedure and the officer’s actions were “not condoned” by the department. The officer involved was placed on administrative leave effective Monday pending review of the situation, the department said.
The Chicago Police Department said in a statement earlier Monday that around 6 p.m. on Sunday, a 69-year-old passenger “became irate” after he was asked to leave the plane.
“The passenger in question began yelling to voice his displeasure at which point Aviation Police were summoned,” police said in the statement.
One of the officers who dragged a passenger off a United Airlines flight did not follow standard operating procedures and has been placed on leave, according to the Chicago Aviation Department.
It was not immediately clear which of the three men seen in a viral video taken by another passenger was placed on leave.
The department, which did not name the officer, said it did not condone the aviation security officers’ actions Sunday night.
United Airlines on Tuesday faced a spiraling crisis from videos showing a passenger being dragged off an airplane, as consumers threatened a boycott of the airline and lawmakers called for an investigation. By the afternoon, after more than a day of changing statements, United’s chief executive apologized and promised a review of its policies.
“No one should ever be mistreated this way,” Oscar Munoz, the company’s chief executive, said in a statement.
No wonder Democrats are all Russians all the time … These people are up to their neck in illegal surveillance of candidate Donald Trump ...
So how did these people know that there was surveillance? Just how long was this going on?
WOW … Former Obama Administration Official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) Admits First Hand Knowledge the Obama Administration spied on candidate & President-Elect Trump
FOLKS, OBAMA OFFICIAL JUST ADMITTED THEY SPIED ON DONALD TRUMP …
Former Obama Administration Official Evelyn Farkas stated in an interview on MSNBC that they were to “Get as much intelligence as you can before President Obama leaves the administration.”
This is stunningly interesting and hopefully will be picked up by MSM and congressional investigators.
Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside. That’s the set up for former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) appearing on MSNBC and admitting first hand knowledge the Obama administration spied on candidate and president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team to gather “intelligence” for political use.
Watch the below video and listen to Conservative talk show radio host discuss the comments made by former Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense, Evelyn Farkas, who admitted that they were spying on candidate and president elect Donald Trump.

AG Sessions Says Sanctuary Cities Are Risking Federal Money By Refusing to Cooperate with Immigration Authorities
SESSIONS TO SANCTUARY CITIES … COMPLY WITH IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES OR LOSE BILLIONS …
Yesterday Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned sanctuary cities, localities and states that they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grants that have already been awarded if they don’t comply. Imagine localities and states in the USA who would put the criminal illegals ahead of the safety of American citizens? The ball is in your court liberal sanctuary cities, comply or lose billions in federal monies.
MAKING AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday warned so-called sanctuary cities they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grants that have already been awarded if they don’t comply.
Sessions said the Justice Department would require cities seeking some of $4.1 billion available in grant money to verify that they are in compliance with a section of federal law that allows information sharing with immigration officials.
His statements in the White House briefing room brought to mind tough talk from President Donald Trump’s campaign and came just three days after the administration’s crushing health care defeat. But Sessions also acknowledged he was reiterating a similar policy adopted by the Obama administration last year.
“I urge the nation’s states and cities to carefully consider the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Sessions said.
