    As President Donald J. Trump continues to insist that America's immigration laws must be enforced, Democratic officials keep responding that the president is racist for wanting to deport illegal aliens. News of imminent deportation raids targeting more than 2,000 individuals with final court removal orders led to upheaval over the weekend. Dozens protested. On Twitter, the far-left, and even supposedly moderate Democrats, gave out advice on how to avoid being deported. Many said there was nothing like this ever before in American history. Well, more than 20 years ago, President Bill Clinton had deportation raids of his own -- and...

    George W Bush and Bill Clinton both took apparent jabs at Donald Trump at a forum on Thursday night as they named the one characteristic a president needed above all others. The two former presidents were speaking at a graduation ceremony for the Presidential Leadership Scholars program at the George W Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Bush replied ‘humility’ in answer to the question about presidential qualities, and added – ‘I think it's really important to know what you don't know and listen to people who do know what you don't know.’ Clinton said anyone holding the highest office in...

Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week. “I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,”...

    He had just flown across the country after an exhausting campaign day in Oregon and South Dakota, landing at the White House after dark. But President Bill Clinton still had more business before bed. He picked up a pen and scrawled out his name, turning a bill into law. It was 10 minutes before 1 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, 1996, and there were no cameras, no ceremony. The witching-hour timing bespoke both political calculation and personal angst. With his signature, federal law now defined marriage as the union of a man and woman. Mr. Clinton considered it a gay-baiting...

Bill Clinton, joining a roster of attractive women who reported similar dalliances, wanted and unwanted. Miss Flowers has stepped forward once again to reveal that in 2005, Mr. Clinton offered to come visit her once again. “I picked up the telephone, and it was him. I said, ‘No, you can’t come over here. No way.’ I said ‘No, you can’t come to my house.’ He said, ‘I’ll put on a hoodie and jog up there.’ He...

That is not true.  "The act emerged after years of experiments at the state level, including my work as Governor of Arkansas beginning in 1980.  When I became President, I granted waivers from the old law to 44 states...

    The codes used by the president to launch a nuclear strike were mislaid for months during the Clinton administration, the former highest-ranking US officer has said. [...] Gen Shelton said the incident had taken place "around the year 2000". Under the procedures, an official was sent every month to check the codes, and that they were replaced every four months with new codes. According to Gen Shelton's book, Without Hesitation, an official had gone to check one month and been told by the aide that the codes were on the president's person but that he was in an important meeting...

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A federal judge in Southern California has declared the U.S. military's ban on openly gay service members unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips on Thursday granted a request for an injunction halting the government's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays in the military. Phillips says the policy doesn't help military readiness and instead has a "direct and deleterious effect" on the armed services. The lawsuit was the biggest legal test of the law in recent years and came amid promises by President Barack Obama that he will work to repeal the policy.
