  2. Daily Caller President Donald Trump’s campaign team raked in roughly $1 million from small donors after the Department of Justice released special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference, The New York Post reported Friday. “The release of the full Mueller report directly led to the campaign raising more than $1 million,” Trump campaign COO Michael Glassner told a reporter. “Relative to our recent daily average, the Mueller news drove a 250 percent increase in fundraising from grassroots donors.” (RELATED: AP: Trump Has ‘Unprecedented War Chest For An Incumbent President This Early In A Campaign) Trump campaign’s already pulled in a reported $30.3 million for the first quarter of 2019, a number roughly equal to the combined donations of Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, both of whom brought in $18.2 million and $12 million respectively. ________ The post-Mueller boom.
  3. Breitbart The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld most of California’s “sanctuary state” laws on Thursday, dealing another setback to the Trump administration in its effort to challenge the laws. Last March, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions traveled to California personally to challenge three main “sanctuary state” laws in a federal lawsuit filed in Sacramento. The three laws are: the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (AB 450); and the California Values Act (SB 54). The U.S. Department of Justice sought a preliminary injunction against the enforcement of the laws. In July 2018, a federal district judge upheld AB 103 and SB 54, but blocked enforcement of portions of AB 450 that applied monetary penalties to employers who complied with the federal government’s efforts to inspect workplaces to determine the immigration status of employees. The Department of Justice filed an appeal, and the answer came Thursday from the Ninth Circuit, widely considered the most liberal of all the appellate courts. A three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld the lower court’s ruling — although it did reverse one small part of its ruling on AB 103, finding that “12532(b)(1)(C), which requires examination of the circumstances surrounding the apprehension and transfer of immigration detainees,” placed an impermissible burden on the federal government. The opinion was written by Judge Milan D. Smith, Jr., a George W. Bush appointee. ________ The Ninth Circus strikes again.
  4. Breitbart Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said in a series of tweets that not only does the Mueller report released on Thursday not clear President Donald Trump of charges of collusion with the Russians, but that efforts to obstruct justice by interfering with the special counsel’s investigation into the matter require starting impeachment proceedings. “The Mueller report lays out facts showing that a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 election to help Donald Trump and Donald Trump welcomed that help. Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack,” Warren tweeted. “Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: ‘Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.’ The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment,” Warren tweeted. ________ Fake Indian speak with desperate tongue.
  5. The Blaze Congressional Democrats, even before the Mueller report was released, have expressed outrage that portions of the report would be redacted by special counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney General William Barr. When the report was released, however, they turned down a chance to see more of the report than the general public, according to The Hill. Barr offered certain congressional leaders the chance to view some of the redacted portions of the report pertaining to ongoing investigations and national security issues. Democrats rejected his offer. Here's what they said, in a letter authored by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Democratic leaders in the congressional judiciary and intelligence committees: The Democrats reportedly rejected Barr's offer because they wanted more people to be allowed to view the sensitive material, and they wanted access to everything, including grand jury material. ________ They had their chance.
  6. Leftists upset about donations to rebuild Notre Dame Paul Mirengoff April 19, 2019 Within hours of the fire that destroyed much of the Notre Dame Cathedral, donors pledged more than $1 billion to restore this magnificent, iconic structure and place of worship. So reports the Washington Post. In the same article, the Post also reports on a backlash against this amazing generosity. A leader of the Yellow Vest movement says that if donors can give so much money to rebuild Notre Dame, “they should stop telling us there is no money to help deal with the social emergency.” But the donations to Notre Dame are coming from private donors. No one denies they have money. It’s the French government that’s running out. Some in the Yellow Vest movement probably favor the government taking yet more money from the wealthy “to help deal with the social emergency.” That’s understandable. There always have been, and always will be, folks who want to take money from the rich. But private efforts to help rebuild Notre Dame aren’t an argument for doing so. (Snip)

  10. n Nyack, New York, an armored car robbery left one guard dead and another critically wounded. The FBI suspected domestic terrorists with a history of violent crime. Their investigation led them to the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground.
  11. The American Spectator The New York Board of Parole announced on Wednesday the decision of Governor Andrew Cuomo not to run for president. They did this by opting to release Judith Clark, a domestic terrorist convicted of three counts of murder. The oblique manner of the governor revealing his political plans follows a blunter decision in 2016 to commute her sentence of 75-years-to-life to 35-years-to-life, making her eligible for parole, which the board initially denied in 2017 but granted this time around. Clark, a red-diaper baby who lived in the Soviet Union for three years as a child, served as a getaway driver in an armed robbery of a Brink’s truck to fund the revolutionary activities, and the drug addictions, of the various players involved. The action resulted in the theft of $1.6 million and the deaths of three men, Brink’s guard, Peter Paige, and two Nyack, New York, policemen, Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown, and the wounding of two other Brink’s guards and a cop. When Clark crashed the getaway car after a chase, cops recovered $800,000 and a gun under her seat. The combined action of the May 19th Communist Organization and the Black Liberation Army on October 20, 1981, followed more than a decade of criminal activity by Clark. In 1969, Chicago police arrested Clark for participating in the Days of Rage, a Weatherman-organized orgy of violence that resulted in paralyzing an aide to Mayor Richard Daley. Later that same year at the Weatherman’s “Wargasm” in Flint, Michigan, where Weathermen spoke approvingly of Charles Manson, Clark, along with future Brinks co-conspirator Kathy Boudin and Diana Oughton, who died in a Greenwich Village townhouse-turned-bomb-factory just months later, created a poster spelling out murdered actress Sharon Tate’s name in bullets. While many of her Weatherman comrades hid underground during the 1970s, Clark continued her revolutionary activities. (Snip) Retired FBI agent Wofford worries that the authorities missed an opportunity to glean valuable information from Clark before her release. “If she had agreed to tell what she knew about all these different groups,” Wofford explains, “it would have substantially helped to establish what players in these groups were responsible for what. For instance, the Fraunces Tavern bombing—there’s not any doubt in my mind she knows who put that bomb down.”

  13. Washington Free Beacon Todd DeFeo - April 19, 2019 Ohio lawmakers want to reduce the number of regulations in the Buckeye State, saying it will make the state more business friendly and help improve the economy. House Bill 115 and Senate Bill 1 would require state agencies to reduce their rules and regulations by 30 percent by 2022. Any agency that cannot pare down its regulations must remove two regulations for every new one it proposes. Ohio’s Administrative Code has 15.2 million words and more than 246,800 "unique restrictions," according to state Sen. Kristina D. Roegner, R-Hudson, a co-sponsor of SB1. "It’s good and important to have rules and regulations in place for the safety and well-being of our citizens," state Rep. Craig S. Riedel, R-Defiance, a co-sponsor of HB 115, said in an interview. "I think it’s also safe to say we’ve gone beyond that, and that because of the excessiveness, it’s a drag on our economy." A state analysis of the House bill found the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) may need an increase of $100,000 per year to hire additional staff to help state agencies prepare their inventories and report on their progress in cutting regulations.

  14. Yankees stop playing Kate Smith’s ‘God Bless America' over concerns some of her other work was racist Diana Stancy Correll April 19, 2019 The New York Yankees have stopped playing Kate Smith's version of “God Bless America” at home games over concerns some of her other recordings might be racist. Smith’s signature 1939 recording of the Irving Berlin song has been a mainstay of the Yankees' seventh-inning stretch since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But the team replaced Smith's version earlier this season with a rotation of other recordings of the song after someone pointed out some of the popular World War II-era singer's other work. “That’s Why Darkies Were Born” includes the lyrics, "Someone had to pick the cotton. … That’s why darkies were born.” The song might have been interpreted as satirical at the time, since it was recorded with African American artist Paul Robeson.
