Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour Arrested For Gun At Airport



Former Mississippi Republican governor Haley Barbour was arrested last week for trying to bring a loaded gun through the airport in Jackson, Mississippi.

The Hattiesburg Patriot broke the story Tuesday, confirming that Barbour was caught by airport police but still boarded his flight after he posted bond for his crime.

Here is the Department of Homeland Security email obtained by the Patriot confirming the details of Barbour’s arrest:

Barbour, a longtime Washington lobbyist, headed the Republican National Committee in the 1990’s and served eight years in the governorship from 2004 to 2012.

The Barbour family is popularly associated with southern machine politics, with Haley Barbour ruling over an establishment that went to war against insurgent Senate candidate Chris McDaniel in 2014 when McDaniel challenged incumbent Republican Thad Cochran.

Barbour faces $13,000 in fines for his firearm arrest.


Big League Politics called Barbour’s Washington lobbying firm BGR Group, but the governor did not come to the phone and a spokesman for the firm said the governor had not been arrested on a gun charge.

Two hours later, the BGR spokesman BLP called back to confirm that the governor had been arrested and he apologized for not knowing the facts before he dismissed the report.

Barbour is a founding partner of BGR Group and currently leads its advocacy and coalitions team.

San Francisco Board of Elections to Allow Non-Citizens to Vote



After two failed votes, the San Francisco Board of Elections has finally attained its goal of allowing illegal immigrants to vote in local elections.

“Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election,” says an ABC San Francisco report. “The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.”

San Francisco will be the first city in California to allow illegals to vote.

“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” said Supervisor Norman Yee who represents District 7.

Immigrants already have the right to vote – legal ones, that is. But the political left continues to make a mockery of the American immigration system, spitting in the faces of everyone who comes to this country legally.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

Some sane people disagreed with the vote.

Harmeet Dhillon, Republican National Committeewoman from California voted against the measure in 2016, and spoke out against the latest vote.

“The reason I voted against it is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship and should be,” Dhillon said. “I don’t think that people who have otherwise tenuous ties to San Francisco given their lack of legal residence should be making long term decisions about that structure and process.”

Now, the only requirement to vote in the San Francisco Board of Education election is being a resident of the city who is 18 years of age at the time of the election.

The measure allows illegals to vote through 2022, unless the city permanently adopts the ordinance.
