    Immigration officials are unsure exactly when Carlos Juarez-Sanchez, a native of Honduras, first illegally crossed the border into the U.S. But, they know he was deported in 2008. And again in 2013. And again in 2014. Juarez-Sanchez, who had a history of arrests for multiple criminal charges dating back to 2003, repeatedly re-entered the U.S. each time he was deported, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said. Last July, ICE officials said they tracked him down to Perth Amboy. While officers attempted to arrest him, Juarez-Sanchez ran, hid under a front porch and led ICE agents on a chase through a...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way. Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left. The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience)...

    Multiple Democratic presidential candidates said Thursday that they won’t attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference in Washington next week. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, are among the 2020 contenders who have decided not to attend. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering an independent bid for president, will also avoid the AIPAC conference. It comes as the liberal advocacy group MoveOn has called on Democratic presidential candidates to skip this year’s policy...

    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) By now, we all know that Irish Bob O’Rourke is a fake “rising star” in this year’s Democrat presidential nominating contest. Irish Bob always was little more than a pure media creation, and he is now struggling on the national stage mainly because the same media that created and supported him in his 2018 run against Ted Cruz has now moved on to campaigning for Kamala Harris and The Commie. But there are two real rising stars in the Democrats’ nominating battle, and their names will probably surprise you: Andrew...

    During a Wednesday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Katie Couric revealed that “a long time ago” she and the New Jersey politician went on a blind date together at a New York Giants game. “Wow, this just in!” she playfully exclaimed as the audience reacted with surprise. “He was really nice,” Couric, 62, said of Booker, 49. “Did we kiss?” she said. “No, we did not kiss.” Still, she had only kind things to say of Booker and Dawson, his newly confirmed girlfriend, whom Couric praised as “very cool” in part thanks to her political activism. “I really like...

    Disgraced real estate developer Charles Kushner would meet with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker in an office stairwell during the time he was living in a halfway house in Newark, New Jersey, according to a new book. The content of their talks was not relayed in Kushner, Inc., released Tuesday by author Vicky Ward, though the conversations followed the billionaire’s years-long financial backing for Booker, at the time a local politician. The link between Booker and the felonious father of President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner is likely to receive attention due to Booker’s bid for the 2020 Democratic...

    Democratic White House hopeful Cory Booker said Sunday night he would reverse President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender individuals serving in the military if elected president. Speaking to a crowd of more than 300 voters in Davenport, the New Jersey senator answered a question posed by a woman who identified herself as transgender about what he would do to protect LGBTQ rights as president. “When I am president of the United States, right away I will end this ridiculous, insulting, un-American ban on transgender Americans serving in the military,” he said to cheers from the crowd.

    Via the Free Beacon, you are not hallucinating. This actually happened.In fact, that’s not the most surreal part. The surreal part is that this is obviously the answer John Hickenlooper should have given when he was recently asked whether he’s a capitalist and botched it royally. Read that again: A twice-elected governor from a swing state is less politically adept than Elizabeth Warren.If I were him I’d drop out today in shame.On Earth 2, Warren is being asked this same question amid news that Bernie Sanders has decided to pass on running for president again in 2020. How does...

The actress was at the Reagan National Airport in D.C. Thursday when our guy quizzed her on what's been widely rumored -- she's the woman Booker referred to last month on the Breakfast Club when he said he was dating someone very special, while adding, "I got a boo." It didn't take much prodding before Dawson said it was true and began gushing over her man, calling him...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020, a senior Democratic lawmaker told The Hill on Tuesday, a move that will shake up the crowded Democratic primary field and make him the clear front-runner for his party’s nomination against President Trump. “I’m giving it a shot,” Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week — a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020. In the brief phone call, the former vice president asked if he could bounce...

    The Federalist ^ | 03/11/2019 | David Marcus
    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, complete with lei, took the stage at SXSW in Austin to do her first town hall as a presidential candidate Sunday night on CNN. The 37-year-old Iraq War veteran is running for president and would be the youngest, first woman, and first Hindu president in our nation’s history. Many pundits have placed Gabbard in the center or even right of the Democratic Party. If so, the center or right of the Democratic Party is pretty leftist. Her first question was about American intervention in the rest of the world, and how she could be against American...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Cory Booker sent out a Tweet on Saturday night that transgenders who serve in the U.S. military are heroes and that President Donald Trump’s policy of banning transgenders from the military is a national security threat. Booker’s Tweet was linked to a Tweet by the Human Rights Campaign that featured a video of transgender former service members speaking about their experiences in the military. “Transgender servicemembers are heroes, just like all other servicemembers risking their lives for their country,” Booker said in his Tweet. “President Trump’s effort to ban them doesn’t just fly in the face of...

    Sen. Cory Booker, New Jersey Democrat, said his “love” for President Trump will not stop him from preventing his re-election to the White House. One of more than a dozen Democrats currently seeking the party’s nomination to run against Mr. Trump in 2020, Mr. Booker discussed his admitted affection for the president when being interviewed Friday by “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on CBS. “You talk a lot about love, love of your country, love of your fellow man. You’ve said very specifically that you don’t have any hate in your heart,” said Mr. Colbert. “You have even said that...

    The Politico ^ | March 5, 2019
    Donations from Trump and his family add another wrinkle to a Democratic primary where candidates are trumpeting their distance from the president. Kamala Harris received money from Donald Trump as recently as six years ago. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner hosted a Park Avenue fundraiser for Cory Booker. Kirsten Gillibrand took in Trump family donations three times across a seven-year period — and then gave a similar amount of money to a nonprofit years later after the president mocked her in a tweet. As the president gears up for his re-election fight, donor records show that six of the declared...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican and Democratic U.S. senators proposed legislation on Thursday that would let an estimated 72,000 Venezuelans remain in the United States after fleeing chaos in their country. Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Bob Menendez introduced the legislation along with Democrats Dick Durbin, Patrick Leahy and Cory Booker. It would immediately grant “Temporary Protected Status” to allow Venezuelans who passed security checks to remain in the United States for 18 months. There was no immediate indication of whether the Senate’s Republican leaders would allow the measure to come up for a vote.

    More than 100 House Democrats -- nearly half of the new majority -- have signed on to a new single-payer healthcare bill that supporters describe as "battle ready." If by "battle ready," they mean, "extremely controversial, deeply politically risky, and totally bereft of any acknowledgement of the proposal's eye-poppingly exorbitant costs," they're undoubtedly correct. Politico's story on the legislation is full of extraordinary tidbits and quotes. Here are some of the most important facts we've learned: (1) The bill "doesn’t include a price tag or specific proposals for financing the new system, which analysts estimate would cost tens of trillions...

We must also repair the damage caused by reinvesting in those communities that have been most harmed by the War on Drugs. And we must expunge the records of those who have served their time.

    We should be finding out whether or not Joe Biden will be running for president any… day… now. Of course, I’m fairly sure I wrote that exact same line back before Christmas, so nobody but Crazy Uncle Joe knows for sure. Still, the clock is ticking and Biden has been making a lot of moves that suggest he’s not just doing this to attract attention. This week, however, we learned that the one thing that would have given Biden the perfect excuse to sail off into retirement is no longer on the table. His family is reportedly onboard with...
