    Full Mesure ^ | October 4 ,2015 | Sharyr Attkakkson
    Immigration took center stage in the show's debut. Host Attkisson explored why Lewiston, Maine has become an unlikely refuge for Somali asylum-seekers, "Full Measure" correspondent Scott Thuman examined life in European refugee camps, and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump explained why he wouldn't welcome any Syrian refugees to America. The GOP newsmaker also exclusively revealed to Attkisson why he would be second to no other presidential candidate.

    First they ignored him. Then they mocked him. Then they tried tearing him down. The most alarming thing about Donald Trump for these people is that they have, literally, thrown everything they can at the man. And, yet, he is still standing, completely unbowed. In the 3˝ months since he launched his campaign, his popularity has only grown with every sling and arrow. They have accused him of rape and tarred him as a racist. They smeared him as a traitor. And, yet, Teflon Don remains undented, the toupee-less man unruffled. In the process, Mr. Trump has accomplished something no...

    The Secret Service’s assistant director urged that unflattering information the agency had in its files about a congressman critical of the service should be made public, according to a government watchdog report released Wednesday. “Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out,” Assistant Director Edward Lowery wrote in an e-mail to a fellow director on March 31, commenting on an internal file that was being widely circulated inside the service. “Just to be fair.” Two days later, a news Web site reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, had applied to be...

    President Bill Clinton says Donald Trump could win the GOP nomination thanks to his ability to promote a unique personal brand. “He’s a master brander,” Clinton said during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Saturday. “And when you’ve got a lot of people running, and people are trying, got to make distinctions, being able to put a personal stamp on it so people identify who you are, certainly counts for something, at least in the beginning.” When asked by Zakaria if he believed Trump could win, Clinton said “I think so.” But he was quick to qualify and note...

    Former President Bill Clinton blamed Republicans who hope to undercut his wife’s presidential chances and a voracious political news media uninterested in substance for the furor surrounding Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state. “I have never seen so much expended on so little,” Mr. Clinton said in a taped interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that will be shown on Sunday. The network released excerpts on Saturday afternoon. “She said she was sorry that her personal email caused all this confusion. And she’d like to give the election back to...

    Thanks to Singas’ policy, Nassau County prosecutors will be finding themselves especiallyexposed, should they be forced to confront an aggrieved offender bent on doing them or their innocent family members harm. The policy will also ensure that armed offenders have the upper hand in any such confrontation. That’s a lot to ask of anybody for $52,000 a year, the salary of an entry level prosecutor in Ringas’s office in 2014. For anybody who has tried to earn a living in the New York City Metropolitan Area, that’s not a lot of money. Clearly, the policy is aimed at impressionable young...

    Earlier in the interview, Goodell has used a rude word. But it’s allowed – the president brushes it off with a smile – because it reflects the seriousness of the terrible shit (oops, now I’m at it) in which we find ourselves. “Doesn’t it scare the shit out of you sometimes?” Goodell asks the president. (He means climate change). “Part of my job is to read stuff that terrifies me all the time,” replies the president. That, there, folks is the non-denial denial. What Obama is doing there, as above, is leaving open the possibility in the viewer’s mind that,...

    Hold on to your toupees, the conservative intellectuals are in a stew. Trump’s rambunctious presence in the race is responsible for a miracle. The conservative intellectuals have finally thrown in with the left intellectuals. Both disrelish Trump, and, if truth be known, they are not very happy with Carson or Fiorina, who with Trump account for over 50 percent of the Republican vote. A year ago these three would be sitting in the politicians’ audience. How is it that Trump anticipates the issues better than the establishment politicians? Well, despite his fortune, Trump is a regular American. I think a...

    Billionaire businessman Donald Trump destroyed Chuck Todd today on “Meet the Press” not falling into several of the liberal media host’s traps. It was just another day at the office for Donald Trump batting away a liberal talking head’s biased questions. Trump would not apologize for not defending Obama saying, “Obama is a capable guy.” Obviously, the media disagrees Trump also was unafraid to call out the “severe problem with Muslims” in the world today. And, Trump also told Todd that there was no way in hell Obama would ever defend him, so get over it. Republican presidential front-runner Donald...

The award so early in his term appeared to take the Obama White House by surprise, and Mr. Lundestad said U.S. officials privately asked if a Nobel Prize-winner had ever skipped the awards ceremony. Normally the Nobel committee’s decision regarding recipients remains private, and Mr. Lundestad’s frank and revealing remarks regarding internal decisions have caused a stir in Norway, detailing the politicking and compromises that have gone into determining the annual laureate. “Even many of Obama’s supporters thought that the...

Obama stated, “Despite the perennial doom and gloom that I guess is inevitably part of a presidential campaign, America’s winning right now. America’s great right now. We can do even better. But, the reason that I’m so confident about our future is, not because of our government, or the size of our GDP or our military, but because, everybody in this country that I meet around the — regardless of their station in life, their race, their religion, the...

    The federal government can tell you how many "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders" stole a car, the precise number of "American Indian or Alaska Natives" who were arrested for vagrancy or how many whites were busted for counterfeiting in any given year. But the government agencies that crunch crime numbers are utterly unable -- or unwilling -- to pinpoint for the public how many illegal immigrants are arrested within U.S. borders each year. In the absence of comprehensive data, examined a patchwork of local, state and federal statistics that revealed a wildly disproportionate number of murderers, rapists and...

Truth, director James Vanderbilt's drama about the "Memogate" scandal that ended Dan Rather's CBS News career, was touted as a world premiere at Toronto. Rather himself turned up at the event to praise the film's accuracy and its (very sympathetic) portrayal of him. CBS mostly comes across as the villain in Truth, with news chief Andy Heyward appearing to fire Rather (Robert Redford) and 60 Minutes...

DeLuca's death came two years after Subway said he had been diagnosed with leukemia and was scaling back on his leadership role at the company. It also came just weeks after the 50th anniversary of Subway, which is known for its "Footlong" sandwiches and says it has more than 44,000 locations around the world. The company traces its roots to 1965, when DeLuca opened a sandwich shop at the age of 17 to help...

    It is painfully obvious that Trump is already laying the policy groundwork for a general election campaign. He’s not looking past the nomination, but he is also not boxing himself in with policy proposals he won’t be able to wriggle out of should he win the nomination. Basically, he’s telling Republican voters the unvarnished truth about where he disagrees with us on a number of bedrock conservative issues, and he’s gambling that enough will stick him because they trust him more than the 15 others on existential issues such as immigration, border enforcement, lowering middle class taxes, simplifying the tax...

    The Donald Trump Show should be a wake-up call to establishment Republicans in Washington. Let’s face it – at its core the Trump phenomenon is an expression of deep anger and frustration at Washington’s lack of leadership. Less than a year ago, conservatives, libertarians, and independents gave Republicans a majority in the Senate and their largest House majority in more than 80 years. They trusted Republicans who campaigned on the promise that a Republican majority would at least put up roadblocks to the Obama agenda. Voters fully expected this Congress to take real steps to rein in spending with a...

    House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she is astonished by a judge's ruling that clears the way for a Republican challenge to President Obama's health care law to move ahead. Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference she's confident that Wednesday's ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer will be overturned. Collyer said the House can pursue its claim that the Obama administration violated the Constitution when it spent public money not appropriated by Congress. Republicans hailed the court ruling, and Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Thursday that "this victory sends a strong message that no one...

    On the Thursday broadcast of his nationally-syndicated radio program, Glenn Beck trashed Sarah Palin for her joint appearance with Donald Trump at yesterday's anti-Iran deal protest on Capitol Hill. "Yeah, I'm going to say it," Beck prepared his audience. "I don't care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I'm embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I'm embarrassed. "Why do I say that about Sarah Palin? How can you say that about Sarah Palin? Because I don't know who she is any more, I don't know what she stands for. I saw...

    For nearly a quarter-century, Hillary Rodham Clinton has played an outsized role in the nation’s consciousness as an advocate and a political survivor. Her presidential campaign’s favorite way to describe her is as “a fighter.” But something surprising has emerged in public opinion about the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. Asked to name something tangible that Clinton has actually accomplished, many voters come up blank. It happened when Bloomberg News posed the question in May to a focus group of 10 Iowa Democrats. They praised Clinton for strength, experience and competence but could not recall a single...

    WASHINGTON – The State Department has delivered only seven of nearly 70 pages of documents that a federal judge identified as potentially responsive to an Associated Press request for documents relating to Hillary Rodham Clinton's hiring of longtime aide Huma Abedin as a special government contract staffer. The department's response contained only five email documents, two of them partially censored. Meanwhile, government lawyers asked another federal judge to delay releasing thousands of pages of documents, sought by news media and legal and political organizations, from Clinton's tenure as secretary of state until January 2016. The State Department's request to delay...

    Today’s vote has now been delayed and the House GOP caucus will meet at 4 p.m. to find a way forward because John Boehner once again miscalculated the degree of support he had in his own caucus .Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are demanding that the Obama administration send side deals between Iran and international nuclear inspectors to Congress as part of the Iran deal now under consideration. Opponents of the deal have argued that the clock on congressional consideration of the deal has not even begun until these side deals are submitted. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) has...

    Republican Donald Trump isn’t going away anytime soon, I now believe. That assessment doesn’t mean I think Trump is the favorite for the Iowa caucuses or the GOP nomination, but it does reflect a fundamental shift in my thinking. I can no longer say that with any certainty, though it remains the single most likely outcome. Trump’s favorable rating jumped from 27 percent in the May Selzer & Company’s Iowa Poll for the Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics to 61 percent in the August 23-25 Selzer survey. At the same time, his unfavorable rating dropped from 63 percent to...

    WASHINGTON — George W. Bush isn't the first Republican president to face a full-blown immigration crisis on the US-Mexican border. Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America's southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond. President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today's force. The operation...

    Apologies aren’t answers to these 19 questions Clinton must answer. “I’m sorry about that,” Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton said six years after seiz­ing con­trol of gov­ern­ment email and after six months of deny­ing wrong­do­ing. Just this week, it took three dif­few­ent in­ter­views in four days for her to beg the puni­est of par­dons: “I do think I could have and should have done a bet­ter job an­swer­ing ques­tions earli­er.” You think? By any ob­ject­ive meas­ure, the Demo­crat­ic pres­id­en­tial front-run­ner has re­spon­ded to her email scan­dal with de­flec­tion and de­cep­tion, shred­ding her cred­ib­il­ity while giv­ing a skep­tic­al pub­lic an­oth­er reas­on not to...
