REPORT: Judge rules against elderly lesbians rejected from retirement home

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 10:04 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NBCNews.com:

A federal court on Wednesday ruled against a lesbian couple who brought a lawsuit against a Missouri retirement home that rejected the women’s apartment application because their marriage is not “understood in the Bible."

Bev Nance, 68, and Mary Walsh, 72, married a decade ago in Massachusetts and have been in a committed relationship for roughly 40 years.

The article goes on to state the following:

When they applied to move into the Friendship Village senior living facility, they did so "because it is in their community, they have friends there, and it offers services that would allow them to stay together there for the rest of their lives," said Julie Wilensky, an attorney representing the couple.

But once Friendship Village staff found that Nance and Walsh are married, they told the couple that they were not allowed to move in, because the home did not condone homosexuality. The letter they received said that the only married couples they accepted were those in unions between “one man and one woman.”

VIDEO: Gingrich responds to BuzzFeed Trump-Cohen report

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 09:56 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) dismissed BuzzFeed’s bombshell report that said federal investigators have evidence President Trump ordered his former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump property in Moscow.

The report released Thursday afternoon has been a top topic on cable news, including on “Fox & Friends” on Friday, a show which included an interview with Gingrich, who serves as a Fox News political contributor.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Let's hop in the way back machine,” co-host Steve Doocy said to Gingrich. “BuzzFeed is who actually published the unverified dossier in its entirety, I believe.”

“Sure. But that is what BuzzFeed does. BuzzFeed is the equivalent of those tabloids you buy at the grocery store on the way out that introduce you to Martians and tell you the story of three stars who had anguished lives that you never knew about,” Gingrich said before later adding, “To take BuzzFeed seriously is a sign of how desperate we are for news.”

BREAKING: Pelosi breaks her silence, accuses Trump of outing trip, putting her in danger (VIDEO)

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 09:46 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday said President Trump revealed that she and other lawmakers would be making a trip to Afghanistan on a commercial flight, a revelation that made it too dangerous to go forward with the trip.

The White House quickly said it was not behind the leak, and accused Pelosi of lying.

“We weren’t going to go because we had a report from Afghanistan that the president outing out trip had made feet on the ground much more dangerous because it’s a signal to bad actors that we were coming,” Pelosi told reporters.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We never give advance notice of going into a battle area — we just never do,” she said. “Perhaps the president’s inexperience didn’t have him understand that protocol — people around him though should have known that because that’s very dangerous.”

VIDEO: Border agents make massive bust, seize 700 lbs of cocaine as smugglers flee into Mexico across border with no physical barrier

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 08:53 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information written by Eddie Scarry and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS — Border Patrol agents said they confiscated more than 700 lbs. of cocaine on Thursday just miles from the Rio Grande river.

I’m in the area with an appointment for a ride-along with border patrol agents, who say that this particular portion of the border is especially high in illegal crossing, including by drug smugglers, due to a lack of physical infrastructure to act as a barrier on the border.

The article goes on to state the following:

Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading “bundles of narcotics” into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river. The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to “abruptly” drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico, CBP said.

CBP did not say how many suspects got away, only that there were “several,” and that the amount of cocaine totaled 705 lbs., with an estimated value of $22.5 million.

Reportedly, the seizure consisted of 270 bricks of cocaine.

The massive cocaine seizure was covered in the following news report:

BREAKING: Migrant caravan freely crosses Mexican border after gates were left open

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 08:33 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

Around 1,000 Central American migrants marched freely through the Guatemala-Mexico border on Friday after the gates were left wide open, with Mexican authorities standing down from confronting the caravan.

The border gates were open only temporarily, but migrants – who crossed the bridge from Tecun-Uman to Ciudad Hidalgo – were surprised to find no locks on the gates, effectively giving them a free pass to enter the country without being stuck at the border or registering with immigration officials and now begin the trek to the U.S. border, which can range from between 1,000 to 2,500 miles depending on the point of entry.

The article goes on to state the following:

There was little presence of police or border security officials. A Mexican official told Fox News that they "did not want to confront" the migrant caravan, fearing the repetition of last year's incident where violent clashes between police and the migrants broke out.

It remains unclear if the border gates were left open intentionally by the authorities or if migrants broke the locks.

Journalist Sarah Kinosian posted several updates on the crossing, also noting the orderly process of the migrants being welcomed right into Mexico.

“Mexico's immigration authority says it has registered a total of 970 adults from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua for humanitarian visas today. Several more are here and processing at the bridge now,” Kinosian wrote, adding, “Of these 150 from El Salvador, 766 Honduras, 39 Guate, 9 Nicaragua. 739 men and 230 women.”

Another journalist, Alberto Pradilla, reported, “This bridge three months ago was a refugee camp. They gassed them. People jumped into the river. Now there is a migration official who welcomes. It’s almost too good to believe.”

He did share another photo of some migrants who climbed a fence, and a video of other migrants who took off walking north, without waiting for the permits offered by Mexico.

Translation: “A thousand migrants have crossed the border of Guatemala and Mexico on foot without waiting for the permits offered by Mexico. Here the stragglers jumping the fence. #CaravanaMigrante.”

Mexican reporter Maya Averbuch wrote, “Hundreds of people from the #caravan crossed the border bridge last night and are walking along the highway that leads to the following city of Tapachula. They did not wait to be processed by Mexico, as authorities had requested.”

Alberto Pradilla tweeted a video of migrants walking to Tapachula in Mexico.

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 08:11 AM PST

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by ABC15.COM:

FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ — An 18-year-old man who was shot by a deputy from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Fountain Hills earlier this month has been charged with two counts of terrorism and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court records.

Court records obtained by ABC15 state that Ismail Hamed provided “advice, assistance, direction or management to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also knows as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).”

The article goes on to state the following:

MCSO Sheriff Paul Penzone says Ismail Hamed was in the process of "radicalizing" and evidence shows his attempt was to harm the deputy to "promote terror."

The FBI and MCSO held a press conference Thursday, announcing that Hamed has been charged with terrorism. On January 7, he reportedly contacted the sheriff’s office saying he wanted to talk to a deputy. When a sergeant arrived, Hamed began throwing rocks at the sergeant. “After being asked to stop, Hamed then pulled out a knife and advanced toward the sergeant, according to MCSO.”

The sergeant shot him, then took him to the hospital for treatment. He was booked into jail the next day. See more details below:

EXCLUSIVE: Pelosi cancels trip, spokesman releases scathing statement, blames Trump for ‘leaks’

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 07:48 AM PST

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, including Rep. Adam Schiff, were loaded on buses and preparing to quietly slip off on an international trip to “visit soldiers” and “obtain critical national security & intelligence briefings from those on the front lines” when President Trump halted the trip Thursday afternoon, by sending a letter telling Pelosi her trip was called off.

In his letter, President Trump also made public where they were going, writing, “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed.”

He told Pelosi she was still welcome to fly commercial if she wished, but made it clear that she would not be using military aircraft for the “excursion.”

Friday morning, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, posted an announcement on Twitter, saying that since the president “leaked their commercial travel plans,” the trip has now been cancelled.

Below is his full statement, which he blasted out in a series of Twitter posts Friday morning:

The United States Congress is a co-equal branch of government in our system of checks and balances. The Congress has a constitutional responsibility to conduct oversight in the war zone where our men and women in uniform are risking their lives every day.

After President Trump revoked the use of military aircraft to travel to Afghanistan, the delegation was prepared to fly commercially to proceed with this vital trip to meet with our commanders and troops on the front lines.

In the middle of the night, State Dept’s Diplomatic Security Service provided an updated threat assessment detailing that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased danger to the delegation & to troops, security, & other officials supporting trip.

This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well.

In light of the grave threats caused by the President's action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights.

Whether here or abroad, the Speaker always thanks our troops, diplomats and intelligence community for their heroism & service. The Speaker commends her colleagues on the delegation, who personally & officially have dedicated their lives to protect & defend the American people.
