  • Migrants and Smugglers Won’t Be Stopped by Donald Trump’s Wall, Ranchers Say

    New York Times ^ | July 24, 2016 | DAN BARRY
    ... The solution favored among ranchers is infused with a fatalism that nothing will change — government being government, and the cartels always one step ahead — so why bother. But here it goes: Intensive, round-the-clock patrols along the border are required for a fence or wall to work; otherwise, those determined to cross will always find a way. But, they argue, if you have boots on the ground, you will have no need for anything so beautiful as the Great Wall of Trump. It is easy, from a distance, to dismiss the ranchers along the border as right-wing Chicken...

    SIERRA VISTA — A representative from the Army Corps of Engineers revealed the findings Wednesday of a four-year munitions study of more than 1,500 acres in the San Pedro Riparian Conservation Area (SPRNCA), southeast of the San Pedro House. The study was looking for live munitions or other environmental factors from World War II Army use that would impact the acreage. Two live explosives and fragments of explosives in the dense, thorny acreage were discovered. A third live explosive was carried out by a hiker and turned over to local authorities. “It is not a hospitable site,” said 1st Lt....

    When Arizona delegates to the Republican National Convention were asked Thursday how many would not vote for Sen. John McCain in next month's primary, more than half of their hands went up. The question stunned veteran pollster Frank Luntz, who had asked it as a part of a presentation on the last day of the convention on the challenges facing the party - one of which was party unity. "Oh my God," Luntz said. "Where's the chairman? You should have told me this before."

Milton Friedman defined a worthy goal for a society seeking equal opportunity: There should be no arbitrary obstacles blocking people from realizing their ambitions. The angry public sees government overreach as precisely that–an arbitrary obstacle that thwarts their ambitions. This column has advocated a sweeping government upheaval that would rewrite federal rules in order to limit Washington’s power and redirect it toward growth, security and higher middle-class incomes. Every government department needs to be reinvented and, in most cases, downsized through...

    If the killings of 5 police officers in Dallas, Texas have shown us anything, it’s that violence breeds more violence, and extremism is a recipe to tear a national conscious apart. Black Lives Matter is seen by some as a modern Civil Rights movement where activists seek justice and reform by protest and activism. Issues such as police brutality, inconsistencies in the justice system, and broader inequality within the nation, are topics BLM has painted as crises for the country. The Black Lives Matter organization undermines any opportunity to seek meaningful reform on the issue of police use-of-force by instead...

In 2004, Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack. On Tuesday, Comey announced...

In a scathing video ad titled 'Tale of Two Press Conferences,' the GOP plays side-by-side excerpts from Comey's statement and a March 10, 2015 press conference when Clinton was first cornered with accusations about her private email server. The result is a smackdown that casts Clinton as a bald-faced liar.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said at his press conference on Wednesday that Congress will “look into” whether Congress can deny former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton access to classified information, if she becomes the presidential nominee, saying, “it’s the least we can do.” […] “I’ve just got to say, from my own experience, you get access to deeply classified material once you leave the convention as the nominee, on a regular basis,” he said. “It’s part of a transition government.”“With no indictment occurring, but a discussion or a call for administrative action, I think it’s the least we can...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Wednesday that Congress could step in and try to deny Hillary Clinton access to classified information during the presidential campaign, if the Obama administration doesn’t take that step itself. Given that the FBI found Mrs. Clinton “careless” in handling top secret information, Mr. Ryan said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should deny her the regular intelligence briefings a party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees get. But he said if Mr. Clapper doesn’t do that, Congress could step in. “We’re not going to forego any options,” he said — though he insisted the administration...

    Republicans will hold hearings to learn more about the FBI's decision to not recommend criminal charges for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday night. "People have been convicted for far less," Ryan said during an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News's "The Kelly File," saying that he thought FBI director James Comey "was going to recommend prosecution" based on the FBI director's opening remarks in a press conference Tuesday. Ryan said the FBI's decision not to recommend charges "underscores the belief that the Clintons live above the law." Comey said that while there...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said late Tuesday that the Director of National Intelligence should "block" Hillary Clinton from receiving classified briefings after the Democratic National Convention. In an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, Ryan recalled receiving weekly CIA briefings as Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012 and said Clinton should not be given such information "given how recklessly she handled this." "She grossly was negligent, she mishandled classified information and now she wants to be commander-in-chief," Ryan said. Ryan said FBI Director James Comey's decision not to pursue charges against Clinton for mishandling classified information while secretary of...

    Hillary Clinton appears to have perjured herself before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in at least three ways: first, by stating that she had turned over “all my work related emails” from her private email server to the government; second, by insisting there was “nothing marked classified on my e-mails”; and third, by telling the committee that her attorneys “went through every single e-mail.” FBI director James Comey’s statement Tuesday suggests none of those statements were true. On Tuesday, Breitbart News published the relevant portion of the transcript of Clinton’s testimony dealing with the question of whether she had...

    Amid a chorus of GOP criticism for the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, one Republican political analyst is standing behind the agency’s verdict, calling it “the FBI’s finest hour” on "CNN Newsroom" Wednesday morning. David Gergen, a former adviser to four U.S. presidents and a senior political analyst for CNN, bucked party lines in an opinion piece as well, calling those who disagree with FBI Director James Comey's decision "embittered partisans.”
