    In a fiery speech on Saturday, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren went after President Trump and the wall he has pledged to build along the U.S.-Mexico border. “Mr. President, we are never, ever going to build your stupid wall!” Warren shouted during her speech at the 17th annual Netroots Nation conference. The progressive lawmaker, who many believe has plans to run for president in 2020, rattled off a litany of grievances she has with the Trump administration and Republicans. At one point, Warren went after her former Senate colleague, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling him “a man too racist to become...
  • L.A. County hands $1.3B — Billion! — to illegals for welfare

    llegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016, Fox News reported, citing data. That’s billion with a capital “B.” That’s a quarter of what the county distributed to its entire needy population in those same months. Liberals and government elitists always like to make the case that citizens ought to support some cheap-sounding fee- or tax-paying cause by grandly pronouncing, “It’s just the cost of a cup of coffee,” or “If everyone just gave up their Starbucks lattes, it’d pay for itself.” Well, guess what $1.3 billion...

    People will “resort to mob violence” when they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle class people” they are denied.“That is what’s going to happen in this country,” Savage said. “You have not yet seen mob violence in this country. You’ve seen some mob violence instigated by George Soros’ mobs. … But you haven’t seen the thing I’m telling you is coming in this country. You haven’t seen the ‘Day of the Locust’ yet.”

    [snip] Bottom line: The wall is no metaphor to Trump. He will accept no substitutes to a huge, long, physical wall, which he believes his voters viscerally want. He told GOP Hill leaders in June he wants it to be 40 to 50 feet high and covered with solar panels. Hill Republicans privately mocked that idea, but some of those same people now recognize that Trump's big, beautiful — and in their minds, ridiculous — wall could be the thing that brings the U.S. government to its knees.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on the House's $788 billion spending measure (all times local): 2:30 p.m. The Republican-led House has voted to make a $1.6 billion down payment for President Donald Trump's long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The vote was 230-196. Republican leaders avoided voting directly on the divisive issue Thursday. Instead, they tucked the wall provision into a broader procedural vote.....

    President Donald Trump plans to use anti-terror law to avoid undergoing a years-long environmental impact study for a large section of a border wall that is expected to travel through a wildlife refuge, Reuters reported Friday night. Trump will use a 2005 anti-terror law created shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack to sidestep an environmental impact study for a 32-mile portion of the border wall, sources told Reuters. The proposed section will pass through the 2,000-acre Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge near the southern tip of Texas. The area is home to 400 species of birds as well...

    White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci reaffirmed President Donald Trump’s commitment to stand for “the people that need the most help in the United States,” during an interview on SiriusXM’s “Breitbart News Saturday.” The new communications director told Breitbart’s Matt Boyle that the shake-up within the White House in the aftermath of Scaramucci’s hiring and White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s unexpected resignation will serve to “refine” the message the president wishes to deliver to the American people. He said Trump is focused on fulfilling his campaign promises and corralling Congress into passing his legislative agenda. “We’ve got to get...
  • Dem leaders vow ‘overwhelming’ opposition to Trump border wall

    House Democratic leaders on Wednesday offered a stern warning to Republicans hoping to put hundreds of millions of dollars toward President Trump’s border wall next year: You’re on your own. “They know that the majority of the Democrats don’t support funding for that wall,” Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.), vice chairman of the Democratic Caucus, told reporters in the Capitol. “If they choose to include it, then they are basically saying, ‘We have the votes among the Republican Party to pass this without a single Democratic vote.’ And if they’re not successful, the blame lies squarely at their feet, because they...

    With his penchant for tweeted insults and GIFs, Donald Trump will never be mistaken for a master of the sweet art of persuasion. Yet he is clearly winning the public argument on the issue of immigration. He isn’t doing it through sustained, careful attention. No, it is the sheer fact of his November victory, and the data showing the importance of the issue of immigration to it, that has begun to shift the intellectual climate. It had been assumed, even by many Republicans like John McCain, that opposition to amnesty and higher levels of legal immigration would doom the GOP...

    Our friend Howard Portnoy at Liberty Unyielding found The New York Times on Monday offered the kind of story we saw a few days ago in The Washington Post: A heart-breaking tale of Donald Trump “winning” by discouraging illegal immigration. The front-page article poured out for 1,698 words under the headline “Fearful Migrants Stop Short of U.S.” Correspondent Kirk Semple began: CHOLOMA, Honduras — His bags were packed, and the smuggler was ready. If all went well, Eswin Josué Fuentes figured he and his 10-year-old daughter would slip into the United States within days. Then, the night before he planned...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will begin building prototypes for President Trump's proposed wall along the Mexican border this summer, authorities said on Tuesday. Agency officials said at a news briefing that the department is ready to begin testing designs on land that is already owned by the government. Four to eight designs will be built and tested, but officials didn't say when the process would actually begin. “We own that land, have access to it and it’s a good place to start testing in a real-world environment,” acting deputy commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello told reporters at the briefing....

    Try a thought experiment: Consider immigrants in the U.S. from Algeria, Israel and Japan and rank them, from highest to lowest, by educational attainment. Here’s the correct order, according to data from the Census Bureau: Algerians have average schooling of 14.7 years, followed by Israelis with 14.5 years, and Japanese with 14.3. Surprised? Consider an additional fact: Algerians represent about 1 in 2,500 immigrants in the U.S., whereas Israelis are 1 in 350 and Japanese 1 in 100. Here’s another counterintuitive result: The average educational level in Mexico, 8.5 years, is almost twice that of India, 4.4 years. Yet Indian...

    A 32-year-old woman charged with uttering death threats while allegedly armed with a knife at a Toronto store before pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group earlier this month told a courtroom Monday that she would attempt to do it “again and again” if released. “I meant to harm those people,” Rehab Dughmosh told Justice Kimberley Crosbie through an Arabic interpreter during a court appearance. “I reject all counsel here. I only believe in Islamic Sharia law. I would like to revoke my Canadian citizenship that I received. I don’t want to have any allegiance to you.” Toronto police responded...
  • Illegal Immigrants in Mexico Are Now Using Uber to Cross Border Points Undetected

    Uber may be assisting in illegal immigration, some Mexican officials claim. Arnulfo Leon Campos of Mexico’s National Institute of Migration said that transporters of undocumented immigrants are using the private ride-sharing service to cross border points without being detected. “Traffickers of people going to the United States diversify their operations and now use private vehicle services like Uber to transport undocumented people,” he said. The statements were made last week after four Uber cars were stopped in the state of Zacatecas on their way to Durango. Cases like these have become more common, officials said, as it becomes increasingly complicated...

    Police officer stabbed in neck at Michigan airport by suspect who yelled 'Allahu Akbar' in possible act of terrorism A police officer was stabbed in the neck on Wednesday at a Michigan airport by a Canadian-born suspect who yelled "Allahu Akbar" in a possible act of terrorism. Authorities say the officer, identified by local news outlets as Lt. Jeff Neville, is in stable condition. A witness told the Flint Journal he was dropping off his daughter at Bishop International Airport when he saw the injured officer. "The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck," Ken Brown...
