    The Republican establishment is weighing a plan with Democrats whereby millions of illegal aliens who are eligible and enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty in exchange for a small amount of border security funding, Reuters reports. Trump’s earlier compromise plan — that both the Republican establishment and Democrats rejected — would have only allowed the nearly 800,000 DACA-enrolled illegal aliens to remain in exchange for a major reduction in legal immigration levels to boost Americans’ wages. For example, Trump’s original plan would have ended the process known as “chain migration,” whereby...

    Gun control proponent David Hogg is pushing a boycott of mutual fund companies invested in firearm manufacturer stocks. This follows his boycott of Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, which resulted in her initially losing advertisers and apologizing to him only to have her viewership jump 20 percent. Now Hogg is targeting BlackRock, Vanguard Group, and a few other mutual fund companies for holding gun manufacturers’ stock in their mutual funds. Hogg tweeted:

    With her cloud of snow-white hair, signature three strand pearls and compelling presence, Barbara Bush's image was what she laughingly called "everybody's grandmother." But the feisty, outspoken Bush was also a tireless advocate for literacy , an author, experienced campaigner and both wife and mother of a U.S. president. Bush, 92, died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of “comfort care.” There were no details of her specific health problems. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, former President George H.W. Bush, five children (a...

And so it was on today’s Morning Joe, whereMike Barnicle suggested that the passing of Mrs. Bush is “accompanied by the passing of decency.” Jon Meacham echoed that theme. Describing the fine values by which Barbara Bush lived her life, Meacham said: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • CNN Panel Uses Barbara Bush’s Passing to Slam Trump

    While discussing Barbara Bush’s legacy on Tuesday evening, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Jeffrey Toobin could not resist using the opportunity to slam President Donald Trump. After news broke of Barbara Bush’s passing, Toobin rattled off the “list of adjectives” associated with the former First Lady—“public-service oriented, the honesty, decency”—and asked, “what about the contrast to our current president?” “I mean this family, whatever else you think of the Bushes, were a family that was wall-to-wall decent… good to people… considerate of others,” Toobin said. “And I’m sorry, I just keep thinking of Donald Trump in the White House who has...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles this week struck down the Trump administration’s policy of denying certain Department of Justice law enforcement grants to cities that adopt “sanctuary” policies and refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Los Angeles Times reports: U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent, nationwide ban against a Justice Department policy that gave an edge to obliging police departments applying for a community policing grant program. In doing so, Real dealt a legal setback to the Trump administration in its aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal immigration and to force compliance from law enforcement...

    President Donald Trump reacted to the latest inspector general report released by the FBI on fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. “He LIED! LIED! LIED!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday, calling the report a “total disaster” for McCabe. The report detailed that McCabe purposefully misled investigators about leaking details about the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation to a reporter. The president added that McCabe was “totally controlled” by former FBI Director James Comey. “McCabe is Comey!!” he wrote. “No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added her own condemnation...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has spoken with people in the West Wing and in Congress about a new plan to knock the Russia investigation off the rails, according to a new report. The Washington Post reported Wednesday night Bannon has a proposal he is presenting to people in President Donald Trump's circle. The plan is designed to protect Trump as the Department of Justice probe into Russia collusion continues. The multi-pronged approach, according to the Post, includes firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, instructing the White House to stop cooperating with FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, and...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised Breitbart News’s coverage of Facebook management’s political machinations, offering her comments during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM host Rebecca Mansour on Breitbart News Tonight. Palin declared, “The reason that I did want to call was to thank Breitbart for covering so fully and so intelligently this whole Facebook stuff and to also explain it to people.” Palin also said, “I feel that with things like today, with Facebook, such a liberal group of people who are trying to control and regulate and make sure that we the people don’t get back in control of...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday confirmed that Facebook is working with the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign. The revelation came during Zuckerberg’s appearance in front of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee joint hearing on Facebook. Asked by Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) whether the special counsel team had subpoenaed Facebook, he responded, “I actually am not aware of — of a subpoena. I believe that there may be, but I know we’re working with them.” During the more than five-hour hearing, Democrats sought...

Anna Eshoo (D-CA), the Bay Area Democrat whose district is reportedly home to many Facebook executives and employees, got the most contributions, receiving $51,050 in the last decade.

    American Thinker ^ | 10 Apr, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    Diamond & Silk are two massively popular supporters of President Trump who reach their millions-strong audience through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Like a bunch of fourth-world bozos, Facebook silenced the two by blocking their millions of viewers from seeing their performances (it's actually a form of performance art) in their news feeds, even though presumably, those millions of viewers subscribed to the women's work precisely because they wanted to see it in their news feeds. Then Facebook went really tinpot-creepy when the two uppity sisters had the temerity to ask them why they were silenced. With Olympian vagueness, Facebook told...

    I feel like the prophet Jeremiah. He was always the prophet I did not want to be when I grew up. He not only was the bearer of bad news to Israel, but he did not exactly live a mostly comfortable life – like Ezekiel and Daniel. But it’s been my misfortune to raise alarms about the devastating attacks by the Digital Cartel – Google-Facebook – on the independent media. They’ve been going on for a long time to be sure. But the scorched-earth policy began last summer – and it’s been killing sites like WND, Breitbart, Daily Caller, et...

    Many of our readers will now be aware of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ recent permanent suspension from Twitter. Twitter claims to be an unbiased platform, open to all voices. Yet the company’s CEO is far from neutral, and his attitudes regularly seep down into Twitter’s policies. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s political biases have been prevalent on the platform for years, constantly bending the social media services rules for those whose political views align with his own, while harshly punishing their political opponents. A perfect example of this is Twitters open support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Jack Dorsey...

    Left-wingers at Google are engaged in a relentless effort to demonetize Breitbart News from its AdSense platform and are linking advertising clients to the anti-Breitbart, far-left pressure group Sleeping Giants. Previously, Google employees have contacted Breitbart News to reveal an atmosphere of indoctrination and intimidation, driven by leftist zealots at the company. Current and former employees at Google now tell us that those same zealots are trying to use the company’s immense power against Breitbart News. In addition to placing pressure on management to take action against the site, they are also working to undermine Breitbart’s reputation with advertisers. Breitbart...
