  • Trump’s 2020 Census May Cost California Congressional Seat by Counting Citizens

    Breitbart ^ | 17 Jan 2018 | CHRISS W. STREET
    Democrats fear the Trump administration’s re-reinstatement of citizenship questions on the 2020 U.S. Census will cost California a Congressional seat and billions in funding. The number of U.S. House of Representative seats was fixed by law in 1911 at 435. The “enumeration” requires at that each state have at least one Representative, and the other Representatives are allocated according to population as determined by the U.S. Census every ten years. Based on the 2010 Census data, California received the most, at 53. But Politico reports that could change with the Department of Justice sending a letter on December 12 to...

    Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon on Tuesday rocketed to the center of the public controversy surrounding the Trump campaign and Russia. The onetime Breitbart mogul now faces multiple subpoenas — from Capitol Hill and special counsel Robert Mueller — stemming from investigations of Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election. The House Intelligence Committee issued a pair of subpoenas, for both documents and testimony, when Bannon declined to answer some questions during an all-day interview on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. Earlier in the day, The New York Times reported that Mueller last week served Bannon a separate...

    Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air. All three potential presidential candidates, along with two others, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders...

    The GOP has failed to recruit strong candidates against a slate of potential Democratic reelection opponents. NEW YORK — Gov. Andrew Cuomo got the good news just after New Year’s Day: Two of his most formidable potential Republican challengers for reelection this year were taking a pass. Days later, it was Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown’s turn, when the Republican front-runner to take him on dropped out of the race. Cuomo and Brown are not alone among Democrats who might challenge President Donald Trump in 2020: At least eight of them, all high-profile politicians, appear poised to avoid facing Republicans’ top-choice...

    Freedom Caucus chair: GOP leaders don't have votes to avoid shutdown Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said late Tuesday night that House GOP leadership did not have the votes to pass a government funding bill. “There is currently not enough support for the latest leadership initiative,” Meadows told The Hill. “We continue to work with them to find a way to reach consensus on a path forward.” Members of the Freedom Caucus met Tuesday night after GOP leaders pitched a new strategy to pass a stopgap spending bill, which would fund the government through...

    White House doctor takes nearly 50 minutes of (stupid) questions on Trump's health White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson stood at the press briefing podium for more than 50 minutes on Tuesday as he took a barrage of questions about President Donald Trump's health. Some of the questions touched on whether Trump could have dementia, Alzheimer's, Hepatitis C, heart disease, his life expectancy, his next colonoscopy, his mental fitness for office, his ice cream intake, how he could be as fit as Barack Obama, his weight measurement, whether he was susceptible to a stroke, whether he was mentally fit for...

    Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev was both lucky and evil. His luck was demonstrated when he won admission to the United States through the diversity visa lottery; his evilness, by his stated willingness to assassinate the president of the United States or commit a terrorist attack in New York City -- if he could not travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, and if that is what the Islamic State ordered him to do. When Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Oct. 27, 2017, New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill summarized his case in a statement released...

    “I have had enough bullshit,” wrote Notre Dame sociology professor Christian Smith in a recent piece about the systemic problems of American Higher Education. “The manure has piled up so deep in the hallways, classrooms, and administration buildings of American higher education that I am not sure how much longer I can wade through it and retain my sanity and integrity.” This forward, in-your-face commentary on the state of today’s higher education caught the attention of many in the realm of the Ivory bell tower, but should also serve as a wake-up call to those who don’t follow higher ed...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Today, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation declaring January 16, 2018 as Religious Freedom Day, wherein he noted that, "Our forefathers, seeking refuge from religious persecution, believed in the eternal truth that freedom is not a gift from the government, but a sacred right from Almighty God." Below is the full text of the proclamation: "Faith is embedded in the history, spirit, and soul of our Nation.

  • STUDY: Arizona’s ‘Dreamers’ Make Up 8 Percent Of State Prison Population

    The Daily Caller ^ | 4:38 PM 01/16/2018 | WILL RACKE Immigration and Foreign Policy Reporter
    Younger illegal immigrants in Arizona make up a far larger percentage of the state’s prison inmates than their share of the population would suggest, according to a new analysis. While illegal immigrants ages 18 to 35 — a group immigration activists call “Dreamers” — are about 2 percent of of the Arizona population, they are almost 8 percent of the prison population. The over-representation by a factor of four shows that younger illegal immigrants in Arizona are far more likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens or legal immigrants of a similar age, says John Lott Jr., president of the...

    [FULL TITLE] [HAVE WEB GIANTS DECLARED WAR ON CONSERVATIVES? Limbaugh: 'They would never think of themselves this way, but these are pure Stalinists'] Internet giants such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube may have, albeit quietly, declared war on conservatives, with new efforts to shut down their ability to get their message out. And talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh has identified what he believes is the ideology behind it. “These people are pure – they would never think of themselves this way – but these are pure Stalinists. While they’re running around call[ing] Trump a Stalinist, they don’t even know what it...

    Editor’s note: The following column originally appeared on NewBusters. For almost an hour on Tuesday, the White House press corps stooped to a new low of embarrassment and clownishly liberal behavior, lobbing over a dozen questions at Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson to insinuate that President Trump must be mentally ill to the point of Alzheimer’s Disease. This was all despite Jackson’s insistence that he’s in great health. Whether it was Bloomberg, CBS News Radio, CNN, or The Washington Post, the long knives were out as the liberal media engaged in their own Pickett’s Charge to save their narrative...

    [FULL TITLE] [The media pokes and prods at Trump’s health: The president’s doctor answered every question, even the silly ones.] “Does the president watch too much TV?” “Is he limited to one scoop of ice cream now?” “Did you address drug addiction?” There were plenty of important questions asked to Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, President Donald Trump’s personal physician, during his nearly hour-long marathon briefing on Trump’s health. But the longer it went on, the more opportunity it gave reporters to exhaust every question they could think of—leading some on the right to paint the media as unwilling to accept...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, characterized the president's health as "excellent," but like the majority of Americans, Trump is overweight and he doesn't get enough exercise. The President weighs 239 pounds. That means he's gained 3 pounds over the last year, according to his last official records. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Trump had a body mass index, or BMI, that puts him in the "overweight" range, according to the National Institutes of Health's online BMI calculator. Being overweight is simply defined as a person whose weight is higher than what is considered a normal weight adjusted...

    Washington (CNN) - President Donald Trump rises around 5:30 a.m. and begins making his first calls to aides and lawmakers as early as 6. He's dressed in his signature dark suit by 8 a.m. at the latest, White House sources told CNN, and although he doesn't drink coffee, his proclivity for Diet Coke is widely known. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician who conducted the President's first official physical evaluation last week, offered the nation new insights into Trump's health and daily routine Tuesday. Among them: His days begin early, after only about four or five hours of sleep,...

    Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that he expects President Trump to sign legislation granting a pathway to citizenship for almost 11 million illegal immigrants. Addressing Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday, Graham said his plan is for Congress to address immigration in two legislative packages, the second of which would include a massive amnesty deal. Phase one would grant a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants brought here as children, who were previously covered under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and would include moderate increases in border security. Phase...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s incendiary words about immigration have dampened the prospects that a broad spending and immigration deal can be reached by the end of the week, raising the possibility of a government shutdown with unknown political consequences for lawmakers in both parties.Democrats facing re-election in states that Mr. Trump carried in 2016 fear that a government funding crisis, precipitated by an immigration showdown, could imperil their campaigns. And they are growing increasingly uneasy that liberal colleagues eyeing White House bids are demanding that any spending bill beyond a stopgap measure that expires on Jan. 19 include protections for...
