    New estimates cited by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, say the caravan now has 14,000 people, many of them already in Mexico while others still wait One woman quoted by BBC, identified as Maria, walking with her husband and two children, said they are looking for work. That would put them in the category of illegal migrants, not asylum-seekers. Yet many appear confident they can take advantage of lax U.S. laws to gain a foothold in the shadows.

    A planned Student Gun Violence Summit held in Washington, D.C. over the weekend has generated a proposal geared towards extensive gun control ideas. The summit was designed to merge existing plans to reduce gun violence and merge them into a single “Students’ Bill of Rights,” after a weekend conference. The group, a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization, was formed by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Melissa Falkowski, along with Jami Amo, a survivor of the Columbine shooting; and Abbey Clements, a teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The summit was sponsored with the assistance of several national gun control...

    News Intensifying Hurricane Willa Headed Directly Toward 10,000 Migrant Caravan Path Update 10/22: Hurricane Willa, as reported by the National Hurricane Center, is now a Category 5 hurricane.It appears that the migrant caravan, which has been reported to upward of 10,000 strong, might run into some extra trouble on their march to seek American asylum. A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross. There’s also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still...

    Top Democrats are working to manage expectations about a "blue wave" sweeping the party into power on Capitol Hill, urging caution about those predictions amid fresh signs that the midterms could be much closer than anticipated. With just over two weeks to go before the critical elections, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Monday that he doesn’t use the term “blue wave” to talk about a possible victory for his party. Even though House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- who has her eyes on the speaker's gavel -- said just days earlier they could be looking at a Democratic...

    Elon Musk announced Sunday that the first tunnel of a proposed underground transportation network across Los Angeles County would open Dec. 10. “The first tunnel is almost done,” Musk tweeted to his 23.1 million followers shortly after 5 p.m. Musk’s Boring Co. is building the tunnel beneath the city of Hawthorne, part of his grand vision for a transportation network that whisks commuters across the county. Last year, Hawthorne officials approved the Boring Co.’s request to tunnel west from Space X headquarters. At the time, they said the tunnel had extended 500 feet. The company has said its technology...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly leads Republican challenger Mike Braun by a single percentage point in polling results released Monday by the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics at Purdue University Fort Wayne. Donnelly is favored by 41 percent of likely voters, Braun by 40 percent and Libertarian Lucy Brenton by 8 percent, with 11 percent of respondents undecided. The poll of 816 likely voters was conducted Oct. 12 through 16 by SurveyUSA and has a 4.6 percent credibility interval, akin to margin of sampling error. "Whether Brenton is pulling more voters from one candidate than the other and who...

    Surely by now you’ve heard the story about that hate crime involving a criminal gang of fascist white-supremacist neo-Nazi alt-right bigots who swarmed peaceful protestors in Upper Manhattan a couple Friday nights ago ---SNIP--- On the morning of the event, vandals spray-painted the anarchy “A” on the club’s front door, smashed windows, glued locks shot, and damaged a keypad entrance system. They also left a note that, to a sane person, sounds a touch threatening:

    Hoosier businessman and Senate Republican candidate Mike Braun has surged in the Indiana Senate race only two weeks before the November election, according to a poll released on Monday. Sen. Joe Donnelly’s popularity has continued to plummet ever since he decided to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Since the Senate confirmation vote, the incumbent Democrat’s favorability and his polling has bottomed out. According to a recent poll conducted by the Braun campaign from October 14-17, Braun leads Donnelly by 44 to 40 percent, with seven percent backing Lucy Brenton, and five percent of voters remain undecided....

    Incumbent Rep. John Faso (R-NY-19) is up by a single point over Democrat challenger Antonio Delgado, according to polling. In a crucial House race that will help determine which party controls the House of Representatives for at least the next two years, Faso was down three points to Delgado back in early September, 45 to 48 percent. A Siena poll now shows Faso up one, 44 to 43 percent. This, however, is well within the poll’s 4.6 percent margin of error. In his district, Faso’s approval rating is upside down by 6 points, 40 to 46 percent. Delgado is only...

    Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles against President Trump, has been ordered by a federal judge to pay $4.85 million in a dispute with a former colleague. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dennis Landin on Monday ordered Avenatti to pay the money to Jason Frank, the ex-colleague who sued him over an unpaid debt. The San Diego Tribune reported that Frank also won a $10 million judgment against Avenatti’s firm, Eagan Avenatti. Frank’s attorney, Eric George, told the paper that “finally the right thing happened” after Landin’s ruling. “My client has had an...

    The hurricane was expected to pass over or near the Islas Marias — a set of islands about 60 miles offshore that include a nature preserve and a federal prison — early Tuesday, then blow ashore in the afternoon or the evening between the resort town of Mazatlan and San Blas, a distance of about 140 miles (220 km). The governments of Sinaloa and Nayarit states ordered coastal region schools to close and began preparing emergency shelters. Mazatlan, with a metropolitan-area population of about 500,000, is a popular vacation spot. It is closer to the U.S. than most other Pacific...

This horde would bust through chain-link fences in seconds and then be upon American soil. And let's assume that we won't be lobbing tear gas. What are the likely/reasonable options available to our commanders?

    From the Long rifle to the AR-15, the story of firearm innovation is inextricably tied to the story of the United States. 1. Kentucky Rifle Martin Meylin has been credited with being the first great American gunmaker and inventor of the Pennsylvania long rifle—which was to become known as the Kentucky long rifle (“Kentucky,” in those days, being anything in the wilderness west of Pennsylvania). Meylin’s small cobblestone workshop still stands off a two-lane road in Lancaster. Local schools are named after him. Plaques have been erected in his honor. State politicians have even written legislation commemorating his contribution...

    If Democrats can keep you dependent upon government, they can keep their power. As demonstrated since “The War on Poverty” began, Democratic policies will never succeed because they’re not intended to. As long as Democrats can convince you that the American Dream is unobtainable without their help, the less likely you are to strive for it, and the more likely you are to blame others for your status in life and thereby vote for government largesse. Leftists understand what many voters have yet to figure out: if they can persuade you that the only thing that stands between you and...
