Jeff Sessions Will Actually Enforce Immigration Law — And It's About Time!

Investor's Business Daily ^ | 4/12/2017 | Staff 

Illegal Immigration: President Trump's newly installed U.S. attorney general, former Sen. Jeff Sessions, is doing something unique for a top U.S. law official: He's actually enforcing immigration law. What a concept.
On Tuesday of this week, Sessions highlighted a "get tough" strategy to curb illegal immigration as he visited the U.S.-Mexico border at Nogales, Ariz. Essentially, his plan boils down to this: If you commit a crime, and entering the U.S. illegally is a crime, you might just end up in court. Yes, we've heard the promises before, so we shouldn't be too surprised. But now the promises are actually turning into policy.
"Where an alien has entered the country — which is a misdemeanor — that alien will now be charged with a felony if they unlawfully enter, or attempt to enter, a second time, and certain aggravating circumstances are present," he said.
But he had more to say: "For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned," Sessions said. "This is a new era. This is the Trump era."
In case you didn't get the message, he went on: "The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch-and-release practices of old are over."
It's not just talk.

Dodge unveils one-seat 840-horsepower muscle car

CNN Money ^ | 4/11/17 | Peter Valdes-Dapena 

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is not a car for normal people. For starters, it comes standard with only one seat. Because passenger seats, and passengers, weigh too much and would slow it down. Your friends aren't worth that.
Then there's the engine. The Demon's 840-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 is the most powerful V8 engine ever put into a regular production car. That makes the Demon the most powerful factory-produced muscle car... ever.
The Demon has already recorded the fastest quarter-mile run by a factory production car ever, as officially certified by the National Hot Rod Association. Starting from a dead stop, a Demon made the drag strip run in just 9.65 seconds.
It also has the fastest zero to 60 time for any production car, according to Dodge, at 2.3 seconds. And the fastest zero to 30 time at 1.3 seconds. All of this leads to it having the most rib-crushing acceleration G-force of any production car. Helping that are the huge buckets of air the engine can suck in through the largest functional hood scoop made for any production car.
Motor Tend magazine has said that the record quickest zero-to-60 run by a factory production car, in its testing, had been by the Tesla Model S P100D. In the hands of Motor Trend test drivers, the Tesla accelerated to 60 miles an hour in 2.28 seconds. (There are various methods for measuring zero to 60 acceleration that can yield different results.)
The Demon is also the first production car able to accelerate so hard it can lift its front wheels off the pavement, a feat that has been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The front wheel can stay up in the air for almost three feet.

‘Dog Company’: Bronze Star Decorated Army Captain Explains How [PC] Lawyers Are Betraying Our Troops

Breitbart News ^ | April 12, 2017 | John Hayward 

Army Captain Roger Hill joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about his new book, Dog Company: A True Story of American Soldiers Abandoned by Their High Command.

“The bottom line here is that we’ve got a set of politically driven rules of engagement that are getting our guys and girls overseas killed and hurt unnecessarily,” Hill said of his book’s urgent message.
“This book Dog Company highlights a number of examples of that, in a real setting, during a real deployment to a province in eastern Afghanistan” in 2008 and 2009, according to Hill.
“My First Sergeant, Tommy Scott, and myself, we led a heavy weapons company in a violent province in eastern Afghanistan,” he recalled. “It seemed like the enemy was always one step ahead of us, and we discovered why. Through the aid of a counter-intel team, we uncovered twelve spies operating on our base. These were Afghan laborers that were hired by the U.S. government to serve as translators and other workers to support us so that we could focus on combat operations.”
“Also at that time, I was receiving credible intelligence that the enemy was planning a large-scale attack against my base. My command made multiple calls to our higher command to get these twelve spies taken off our hands, as was according to protocol. They would not,” he continued.
