Modal Trigger Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

The Obama administration will tell any lie and break any law to prevent the president’s signature health-care program from collapsing.

Insurance companies such as UnitedHealthcare and Aetna are losing billions trying to sell ObamaCare plans, and the risk is they’ll drop out at the end of 2016. No insurance companies means no ObamaCare.

In 2014, the White House tried to avert that disaster by promising insurers a taxpayer-funded bailout, but public outrage and quick action by Sen. Marco Rubio put a stop to it. Now the administration is at it again.

Desperate to keep insurers on board, the administration scrambled to find another pot of money. Unfortunately, once again, a big part of that money pot belongs to the public.

President Obama doesn’t seem to care. On Feb. 12, the administration announced that the money will be handed out to insurers — a whopping $7.7 billion this year alone.
But it’s not just expensive: That huge handout to the insurance industry is also illegal.

This is money you and everyone else who already has insurance are forced to pay, called a reinsurance fee. You pay the fee whether you buy your own plan or get covered at work, even if your employer self-insures. You may be clueless about it, but the fee is buried in your premium or taken out of your compensation.

The text of the Affordable Care Act is clear as a bell on what this money can be used for.

Some of these annual fees — adding up to billions a year — belong to the public, not the insurance companies. The law states a fixed share “shall be deposited into the general fund of the Treasury of the United States and may not be used” to offset insurance companies’ losses.

But the administration gave all of it to the insurance companies last year, and got away with that heist. So now they’re trying it again.

Anyone in the corporate world who misused funds that way would be headed to prison. This rogue administration is going to any length — including running afoul of the law — to keep insurers hooked into ObamaCare.

In the words of University of Houston law professor Seth Chandler, who tried to call attention to the crime several months ago, this is “an illegal diversion of funds . . . to enrich insurers.” Last year alone, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas got $549 million of these reinsurance funds, while Anthem Blue Cross of California got $401 million.

How did this fly under the radar last year? Because no one — especially members of Congress — has read the law. Insurance companies weren’t about to object to getting more money than the law allows.

Plus, the announcements of these payments were buried in mind-numbing federal agency releases. The latest such disclosure came late last Friday — heading into a holiday weekend.

This week, a few health scholars took notice, including Galen Institute senior fellow Doug Badger. He says the illegal maneuver is “designed to keep a sinking ship from hitting rock bottom.”

ObamaCare was sold on lies: You can keep your health plan if you like it. And keep your doctor if you like your doctor. Then, once it was passed, the administration resorted to a long string of lawless executive actions to keep an unworkable scheme going, despite the damage being done to employers, doctors and consumers.

The administration’s diversion of public funds to its insurance-company cronies is just the latest defiance of the law.

The president has illegally delayed the employer mandate repeatedly. He’s handing out free ObamaCare plans to illegal immigrants. Statutory deadlines are routinely ignored, and funds are slyly shifted from one program to another — the law be damned.

Ultimately, ObamaCare is imperiling not only our health and our nation’s economic growth, but even our nation’s most precious asset — the rule of law.

Awful, just awful… what a lawless administration.

Several well-funded organizations — including the League of Women Voters and the NAACP — are fighting efforts to prevent non-citizens from voting illegally in the upcoming presidential election. And the United States Department of Justice, under the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is helping them.

On February 12, these groups filed a lawsuit in D.C. federal court seeking to reverse a recent decision by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The Commission’s decision allows Kansas and other states, including Arizona and Georgia, to enforce state laws ensuring that only citizens register to vote when they use a federally designed registration form. An initial hearing in the case is set for Monday afternoon, February 22.

A NOTE ABOUT THE APPLE I-PHONE CONTROVERSY:

To see this in perspective, we have to go back to the Snowdon Controversy!  Did Snowdon commit a crime? Yes!  Was his crime a public service? Yes!

If you don’t believe we are living under a lawless government, after reading this far, then you are asleep and I hope you wake up in time!  The wimps in the media (propaganda machine) keep you thinking that the Apple Controversy is about one phone!  IT IS NOT!  As Snowdon proved, we do not have any privacy from “Big Brother”  except for this latest model of I-phone by Apple.

We need to ask, “Why didn’t the FBI take this phone to Apple before they caused it to lock-up?” Seventy times in the past, the FBI prevailed upon Apple to help them with phones that had not reached the “locked-up” stage.  Apple always cooperated.  I’m not very tech savvy, but listening to those that are, I found out that for Apple to get into this phone at this stage would open up the flood gate for the destruction of the last vestige of privacy left in the tech world.

If privacy is so important for the ability to murder a baby in the womb, then maybe “We the People” should be allowed this one little area of privacy.

 Let’s face it, Apple is the one system that hackers from China, Russia, North Korea, Isis and other enemies of privacy have not been able to penetrate!  As Snowdon proved, NOTHING IS PRIVATE ANYMORE, except this one tiny area!

Will Apple win? Probably not, because the “sheeple” believe what they are told by the media!  Apple will cave and the NSA will now be able to spy on this tiny island of privacy left to “We the People.”

Trump is Gaining as my Presidential First Choice with His “Keep Terrorists Out!”

“They will kill him before they let him be president.  It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.  Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident.  Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.  It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another.  It’s one for all and all for one.”
“It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people.  We get ripped off. We’re  the patsies.  But for once, the ‘powerful socialist cabal’ and the ‘corrupt crony capitalists’ are scared.  The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of  America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.” 

Excerpt from Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show.

IF BILL BENNETT’S PREDICTION COMES TRUE THE ESTABLISHMENT WILL HAVE A FORCE MUCH MORE VIOLENT TO DEAL WITH THAN ISIS, ISIL, DASH, AL-QAEDA, BLACK LIVES MATTER AND OCCUPY WALL STREET PUT TOGETHER!  THE FORCE THAT DECIMATED THE NAZI AND IMPERIAL JAPANESE THREAT DURING WORLD WAR II WILL HIT THEM SO HARD THEY WILL NOT KNOW WHAT HIT THEM! IT WILL BE ALL THE EVIDENCE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE CONVINCED THEY HAVE BEEN CONSPIRED AGAINST! ALL THEIR WONDERFUL WORD ARE BS, WHILE THEY RIP US OFF!  MY SUGGESTION TO THE BANKSTERS, POLITICIANS, CRONY CAPITALISTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TO LET THE ELECTION PLAY OUT WITHOUT ANY SHENANIGANS AGAINST CRUZ, CARSON OR TRUMP!

2015 is 1984!
Big Brother Barry is watching us!
The Sinister  Difference Between “ISIS” and “ISIL”
Here is an  explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL.    I have been  suspicious of the term ISIL to which the administration stubbornly  clings.

ISIS =  Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.  Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped  like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north.

ISIL =  Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.  Iraq is still to the east of  Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun,  i.e., to the east)” – and is basically the land along the Mediterranean – that  includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.

By  saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the  rest of the countries along the Mediterranean – and Israel sort of disappears  (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” – which is therefore  part of ISIL.

If you’ve  wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially BHO calls it  ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world, here’s the answer. Decoding  Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. In one  press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror  super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL,  instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic  State. Have you  ever wondered about that?

Here is the  difference: What makes  up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant ?  Israel.
ISIL stands for the  Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.  Now, to us  Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we?

No,  honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same.  But how would a  Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what  is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. The  geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle  East.  It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the  south.

If  you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that  comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!

It’s  Israel.

****When  Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending  a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not  recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the  Islamic State.

Now you  know why Obama has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for  dealing with ISIS.

But he does  have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one.

Obama’s  plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum  that Congress forces him to do.  His plan to buy ISIL as much time as  possible to make as many gains as they can. Listen as  Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department  and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so  there is no doubt in your mind. And it’s  working. The Islamic  State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their  latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger  planes. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing  nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of  course, has not changed and will never change.

The  ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel and then the United States.

Now you  know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so  carefully. 

MUSLIMS WANT THEIR CALIPHATE!
MUSLIMS WANT THEIR CALIPHATE!
“A Jew who  votes for Obama (OR ANY DEMOCRAT) is like a chicken who votes for Col.Sanders.”
NOW IT’S MY TURN:
All you idiots of SMART, can’t you finally see Trump has you all fooled into giving him everything he wants? Trump’s a genius! The clowns that think they are the smartest in the room are being lead around by their noses! Trump is the great negotiator!  As he manipulated the press and the establishment, I now believe he will get Mexico to pay for the Wall! He can get better deals out of China!  Once again he will re-establish good relations with Putin. He may also be able to get that twerp of a clown in North Korea and the terrorists to become more civilized!  He is the only one that has a chance to negotiate peace in the Middle East! Until it happened, I couldn’t believe so many Americans could be deceived by Obama, twice!  Then I saw Trump perform on the national stage! I thought he was just a lucky guy with connections. Now, I believe he is the knight in shinning armor we have prayed for!  I still love a couple of other candidates, but lately Trump has taken the lead!
In case you haven’t caught on yet let’s look at what Trump does to work his magic: He researches the issue of the day. He finds out the truth behind it. He states that fact in an audacious manner! Everyone jumps all over what he said before looking into the truth of the matter, giving him tons of publicity, then the truth emerges and he looks like a hero and a genius!

The most recent example is the claim by democrats and establishment that Trumps calling for the activation of “8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens” of 1952 was illegal, unconstitutional and bigoted.  It was passed  by a democrat congress and signed into law by the democrat Harry Truman. The politician to use it was the democrat Jimmy Carter in 1979 when he gave all alien Shiite Muslims from Iranians 30 days to report. 50,000 did! 15,000 of them didn’t pass the smell test and were deported! When Trump asked the Obama government to apply the law to terrorist jihadists, the likes of Megan Kelly, Josh Earnest, Carly Fiorina, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Lindsy Graham and Paul Ryan all proved how uninformed they are by attacking this law! Trump was right factually, legally and historically and his critics were left to look like fools!

8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

Allows the president, by Proclamation to ban or prevent “All, or any class of immigrants” from the United States!

Please, if you are a member of the deceived class, Google it and see that unlike today, in those days the democrats had some common sense and passed laws that protected the American people! Here are a few of the most pertinent clauses for the situation today:

(3) Security and related grounds

(A) In general Any alien who a consular officer or the Attorney General knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, seeks to enter the United States to engage solely, principally, or incidentally in—

(i)

any activity (I) to violate any law of the United States relating to espionage or sabotage or (II) to violate or evade any law prohibiting the export from the United States of goods, technology, or sensitive information,

(ii)

any other unlawful activity, or

(iii)

any activity a purpose of which is the opposition to, or the control or overthrow of, the Government of the United States by force, violence, or other unlawful means,
is inadmissible.

(B) Terrorist activities

(i) In general Any alien who—

(I)

has engaged in a terrorist activity;

(II)

a consular officer, the Attorney General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry in any terrorist activity (as defined in clause (iv));

(III)

has, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily harm, incited terrorist activity;

(IV) is a representative (as defined in clause (v)) of—

(aa)

a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or

(bb)

a political, social, or other group that endorses or espouses terrorist activity;

(V)

is a member of a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi);

(VI)

is a member of a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the alien can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the alien did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;

(VII)

endorses or espouses terrorist activity or persuades others to endorse or espouse terrorist activity or support a terrorist organization;

(VIII)

has received military-type training (as defined in section 2339D(c)(1) of title 18) from or on behalf of any organization that, at the time the training was received, was a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or

(IX)

is the spouse or child of an alien who is inadmissible under this subparagraph, if the activity causing the alien to be found inadmissible occurred within the last 5 years,
  is inadmissible. An alien who is an officer, official, representative, or spokesman of the Palestine Liberation Organization is considered, for purposes of this chapter, to be engaged in a terrorist activity.
Most might think the Security and Terrorist section above are most important. However, I believe Section G is vital to our survival as a nation:

(G) Foreign government officials who have committed particularly severe violations of religious freedom

Any alien who, while serving as a foreign government official, was responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom, as defined in section 6402 of title 22, is inadmissible.

 

Why is that more vital than terrorism? Simply because Islam isn’t just a religion, as Americans think of religion!  The Muslim is controlled entirely by Islam.  He follows it in government, health, marital relations, diet, military matters and especially legal matters.

The concern is in how they interpret “Legal Matters!”  It appears from the beheading of an off-duty soldier in England, the beheading of a secretary in Oklahoma and the many shooting from Ft. Hood to San Bernardino every Muslim can determine and be “responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom.” If the Muslim or a small group of Muslims deem a person is not of the correct religion he can decide to kill him!  In other words, if a community of Catholics, Protestants and a Mormon were friends and their Muslim neighbor feels they are infidels, he can be the judge and the executioner!  Maybe they have some sort of legal machinations before the Muslim can act, such as issuing a fatwah, but so far it looks like any Muslim at any time can be “responsible for … particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”

If you read The Hadith you will see Muhammad instructs the Muslim to “…lie in wait until the time is right to strike the Infidel…” and “…it’s ok to speak lies…” if it furthers the cause of Islam!

So, if the critics of Trump want to let just any Muslim into the USA, I suggest they rethink such an open welcome. Or, move to Saudi Arabia or a similar country and partake all of their joy! Meanwhile, we need a moratorium on admitting alien Muslims into the USA until they can be properly vetted!

Even then it was obvious!
Even then it was obvious!

What liberals Need to Learn form Putin and Trump!

Subject: Putin Quote  (Similar to the sentiments of Donald Trump!)  POLITICIANS YOU MUST HEED THIS ADVICE!
This is one time the elected leaders in the civilized world should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.
No wonder he was selected by Forbes as the most powerful person in the world.

Vladimir Putin’s speech – SHORTEST SPEECH EVER.

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia :

“In Russia , live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.

” Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia . The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.

“When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

THE TRUMP AFFAIR-
MOST MEXICAN-AMERICANS AGREE WITH TRUMP.
The majority of legal immigrants, and children of legal immigrants agree with Donald Trump.  They came here using the system, as cumbersome as it is.  They feel:
1) The simple fact the people Trump referred to came here illegally makes them criminals.
2) A large number of them do commit criminal acts.  SEE THE STORY FOLLOWING THE IMMEDIATE ONE BELOW.
3) The legal immigrant fears the gang-bangers such as MS-13 and other terrorists and criminals sneaking in with the otherwise innocents.
4) The Hispanic leaders quoted in the article below are in favor of criminal behavior and do not reflect the attitude of legal citizens!
4) Dumb republican politicians better wise up!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hispanic leaders are bristling at the largely tepid response by Republican presidential candidates to Donald Trump’s characterization of Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers.

Several 2016 contenders have brushed off Trump’s comments while others have ignored them. Marco Rubio, a Florida senator who is Hispanic, denounced them as “not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive,” after declining for two weeks to address the matter directly. Another Hispanic in the race, Ted Cruz, said Trump is “terrific,” ”brash” and “speaks the truth.

It’s an uncomfortable moment for Republicans, who want more votes from the surging Latino population.

And it could be a costly moment if more candidates don’t go beyond their Donald-will-be-Donald response and condemn him directly, said Alfonso Aguilar, a Republican who leads the American Principles Project’s Latino Partnership.

“The time has come for the candidates to distance themselves from Trump and call his comments what they are: ludicrous, baseless and insulting,” Aguilar said. “Sadly, it hurts the party with Hispanic voters. It’s a level of idiocy I haven’t seen in a long time.”

So far, Trump has paid less of a political price than a commercial one.

The leading Hispanic television network, Univision, has backed out of televising the Miss USA pageant, a joint venture between Trump and NBC, which also cut ties with Trump. On Wednesday, the Macy’s department store chain, which carried a Donald Trump menswear line, said it was ending its relationship with him. Other retailers are facing pressure to follow suit.

On Friday, the NASCAR motorsports series said it will not hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami. The CEO of a top NASCAR sponsor, Camping World’s Marcus Lemonis, had said he would not participate in the awards ceremony if it were held at a property owned by Trump, whom he criticized for “recent and ongoing blatantly bigoted and racist comments … in regards to immigrants.”

In his speech last month marking his entry into the Republican race, Trump said Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

The businessman has refused to back down, although he insists his remarks were misconstrued.

“My statements have been contorted to seem racist and discriminatory,” he wrote in a message to supporters on Thursday. “What I want is for legal immigrants to not be unfairly punished because others are coming into America illegally, flooding the labor market and not paying taxes.” His original comments, though, did not make a distinction between Mexicans who came to U.S. legally and those here illegally.

His rhetoric may resonate with some of the Republican Party’s most passionate voters, who have long viewed illegal immigration as one of the nation’s most pressing problems. But the 2016 contest brings opportunity for the party to make inroads with Hispanics, with several Latino candidates and a former Florida governor, Jeb Bush, who has deep Latino ties and speaks Spanish and hasn’t been shy about using it in the campaign.

Even so, Bush has said little more about Trump’s comments than that they were “wrong.”

“Maybe we’ll have a chance to have an honest discussion about it onstage,” Bush said last weekend while campaigning in Nevada, referring to Republican presidential debates.

Rev. Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, is paying keen attention to how the candidates respond to Trump’s “xenophobic rhetoric.”

“We’re listening very, very closely, not just what candidates say but what they don’t say — the sins of commission and the sins of omission,” he said.

Among 2016 contenders:

—New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Trump’s comments “wholly inappropriate.” But in a subsequent radio interview, he said Trump is “a really wonderful guy (who’s) always been a good friend.”

—Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said: “I don’t think Donald Trump’s remarks reflect the Republican Party.”

—Cruz said he likes Trump and thinks NBC “is engaging in political correctness” in breaking ties with him.

—Rubio said the next president “needs to be someone who brings Americans together — not someone who continues to divide.”

—Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former technology executive Carly Fiorina and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson have been silent.

Not since the 2004 re-election campaign of President George W. Bush has a Republican presidential candidate earned as much as 40 percent of the Hispanic vote. Mitt Romney got a dismal 27 percent in the 2012 contest against President Barack Obama.

San Francisco: No ‘legal basis’ to hold shooting suspect

Associated Press

July 3, 2015 11:32 PM

KGO – San Francisco

Friends hold gathering to mourn woman shot at Pier 14

Friends hold gathering to mourn woman shot at Pier 14

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A man suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had turned Francisco Sanchez over to authorities in San Francisco on March 26 on an outstanding drug warrant, agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

Sanchez was booked into the San Francisco County Jail from federal prison, according to a statement from the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, which operates the jail.

Police officers arrested Sanchez about an hour after Wednesday’s seemingly random slaying of Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 — one of the busiest attractions in the city. People gather there to take in the views, joggers exercise, and families push strollers at all hours.

Sanchez was on probation for an unspecified conviction, police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said Thursday.

Kice said ICE issued a detainer for Sanchez in March, requesting notification of his release and that he stay in custody until immigration authorities could pick him up. The detainer was not honored, she said.

Freya Horne, counsel for the sheriff’s office, said Friday that federal detention orders are not a legal basis to hold someone, so Sanchez was released April 15. San Francisco is a sanctuary city, and local money cannot be spent to cooperate with federal immigration law.

The city does not turn over people who are in the country illegally unless there’s an active warrant for their arrest, she said. Horne said they checked and found none. ICE could have issued an active warrant if they wanted the city to keep him, she said.

“It’s not legal to hold someone on a request to detain. This is not just us. This is a widely adopted position,” Horne said.

Steinle was gunned down while out for an evening stroll with her father along the waterfront. Police said witnesses heard no argument or dispute before the shooting, suggesting it was a random attack.

Liz Sullivan told the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1IuWbKw) the killing of her daughter was unbelievable and surreal. “I don’t think I’ve totally grasped it,” Sullivan said.

Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said witnesses snapped photos of Sanchez immediately after the shooting, and the images helped police make the arrest while he was walking on a sidewalk a few blocks away.

Police were still waiting for fingerprint identification on Sanchez, who is believed to be a 45-year-old whose last address was in Texas. Authorities said he does not yet have a lawyer who could be reached for comment.

Sullivan told the Chronicle that her 32-year-old daughter turned to her father after she was shot and said she didn’t feel well before collapsing.

“She just kept saying, ‘Dad, help me, help me,’ ” Sullivan said.

Her father immediately began CPR before paramedics rushed the woman to the hospital. “She fought for her life,” Sullivan said.

Steinle went to high school and previously lived about 40 miles east of San Francisco, the newspaper said. She recently moved just blocks from the waterfront and worked for a medical technology company.

“Black Op Site” Run by Chicago Police

By Pastor Hal Mayer on Mar 09, 2015 04:00 am

“The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.”
The warehouse, known as Homan Square, has been the scene of secretive work by special police units that former detainees and their lawyers say denies access to basic constitutional rights, such as keeping arrestees out of official booking databases, beatings by police resulting in head wounds, shackling for prolonged periods, denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility, and holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15. At least one man died in the “interview room.”
One former detainee, Brian Jacob Church said, “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.”
The secretive detention center echoes the abuses of the U.S. in its war on terrorism, including “military style vehicles, interrogation cells and even a cage.”
“It’s sort of an open secret among attorneys that regularly make police station visits, this place – if you can’t find a client in the system, odds are they’re there,” said Chicago lawyer Julia Bartmes. Those lawyers who have attempted to gain access to Homan Square are most often turned away, even as their clients remain in custody inside.
The Chicago Police Department denied the allegations that it was abusing detainees and said they have access to their rights. But the allegations of former detainees and lawyers don’t confirm the department’s statements.
“They just disappear,” said Anthony Hill, a criminal defense attorney, “until they show up at a district for charging or are just released back out on the street.”
