    Experts say the opposite is happening. Before US immigration authorities detained him and took his son, the Honduran migrant said he spent three days in the hands of armed men who identified themselves as members of the Gulf Cartel. Christian, who did not want his full name used, said he was traveling to the US border with his 7-year-old ..."They told us if we didn't pay that they were going to kill us," recalled Christian, who said he was freed three days later after relatives wired money {snip} . The smugglers prefer migrants with family in the US. They know...

    Putin met the last four US presidents since he took office in the 1990s. The two leaders met again in June 2000 in Moscow after Putin became president of Russia and Clinton was in his final year in office. After Bush was sworn into office in January 2001, the two leaders met for the first time in June for a summit in Slovenia. Putin met with the recently sworn-in Obama for the first time in July 2009 in Moscow. Obama reportedly emerged from the meeting feeling confident and optimistic in resetting relations with Putin. "We think there's an excellent opportunity...

    Immigrant parents and children alleged in interviews filed in federal court this week that they faced mistreatment while being held in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities, saying they were often deprived of food, water and sleep. In the interviews, which included some redactions and were filed as part of a lawsuit against the government's detention of minors, the immigrants described not being allowed to shower for days and being given rotten food and dirty drinking water. One woman described as Lidia, 22, said during her interview that she and her 4-year-old son “went hungry the entire time” they...
  • Trump and Putin morph into the same person on the cover of Time magazine

    CBS ^ | July 19, 2018 | CAITLIN O'KANE
    Time magazine has released the cover of its newest issue, and it makes quite a visual and political statement. The cover shows the faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphing together. The close-up image shows the leaders' faces blended so that it's unclear where one begins and the other ends. An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. The cover illustrates an article on the two leaders' recent Helsinki summit and the persistent controversy over what author Brian Bennett calls President Trump's "puzzling affinity for Putin."

    Hoorah! CNN has finally had its Bigfoot moment. After a long, arduous search which has been going on by CNN and the mainstream media since at least February 2017, a Trump voter who now no longer supports him has been found and featured in a video. Although others in the video proclaimed their support for the President or his policies, CNN highlighted that one, count them, ONE, voter who changed her mind on their home page with a link to the video titled “Trump voter: I really regret my support of him.”The comment of the one, count them, ONE, Trump voter who no...

    The growing use of anti-anxiety pills reminds some doctors of the early days of the opioid crisis. Considered relatively safe and non-addictive by the general public and many doctors, Xanax, Valium, Ativan and Klonopin have been prescribed to millions of Americans for decades to calm jittery nerves and promote a good night’s sleep. But the number of people taking the sedatives and the average length of time they’re taking them have shot up since the 1990s, when doctors also started liberally prescribing opioid painkillers. As a result, some state and federal officials are now warning that excessive prescribing of a...

    How much does the rumored “blue wave” rely on the youth vote? This is of particular concern for Democrats when it comes to the 18-29 demographic which regularly leans toward the progressive side these days. If a recent poll from the Public Religion Research Institute and the Atlantic is any indication, there’s plenty to worry about. (I actually picked this up from a Vox article, but the poll seems legitimate.) While the youngest voters seem to be quite vocal out on the protest beat, fewer than a third of them are sure that they’ll actually show up on election...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Today’s news from California. Oh, my. – A scheme to infest the U.S. Congress with an additional four nitwit senators from California by splitting the state into three parts was slapped down by the California Supreme Court on Wednesday: The court said in an en banc decision Wednesday that “significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity” and that “the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.” So, the Republic is safe for now, though...

    If we're going to be serious about treaty commitments, then we have to be serious about all treaty commitments -- the commitments where there's an actual invasion going on that legally requires US action, now, and not just those more-fun-to-chat-about hypothetical future invasions. Which are safer to discuss politically, of course, because no US troops are currently demanded for the cause. In the meantime, the unchastened neocons choose to selectively forget that the United States made security guarantees to Ukraine, promising to protect it in case of Russian invasion, and we have chosen to ignore those obligations. And I don't...

    At first, it was mostly just Chuck Schumer calling for hearings over what happened at the Trump – Putin summit. As Allahpundit noted last night, unless there are a lot of Republicans willing to go along with the idea (including key committee leaders) that’s not likely to happen. But now some additional Democrats are jumping on the dogpile and getting more specific than simply calling for “hearings.” Joe Kennedy and Jeanne Shaheen want to know what was discussed during the private, two-hour conversation between Presidents Trump and Putin. But if neither of the leaders are choosing to divulge that...

    A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration's lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position. Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN's New Day on Wednesday that Trump's refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line. "I quit because I couldn't be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ......

    I'm just starting to hear the first inklings of the concern that Russians are going to "interfere" in the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republicans. They've accused those of us in the #WalkAway movement of being Russian bots. They've accused the NRA of being Russian agents. They're accusing the President of being a traitor. The former FBI Director and many others is urging all patriots to put aside "policies" and vote Democrat. We are rapidly approaching a point where the Deep State/Media/Democrat Party/etc. are defining Trump and the entire Republican Party as traitors. The logical extension of their position...

    Under normal circumstances, the gift would delight any 12-year-old soccer fan: A ball used in the recent World Cup final. But these were not normal circumstances. And the ball in question was presented by Russian President Vladimir Putin to President Donald Trump during a bizarre moment in what has been widely condemned as an embarrassing and diplomatically disastrous moment for Trump’s White House and for the United States. Following a high-stakes summit in Helsinki Monday, Putin brought out a special red-and-white ball at his joint press conference with Trump. Putin handed the ball to his American counterpart, seemingly as a...

    {snip} But coming on the heels of the indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officials last week alleging a detailed campaign to interfere on Trump’s behalf, many Democrats believe the summit may have helped clarify months of opaque investigations into the president’s Russia ties — probes that Trump and his allies have spent months attacking as a biased “witch hunt.” “It got simple real fast,” said Jim Kessler, senior vice president for policy at Third Way, a centrist Democratic think tank. “I’ve talked to a lot of Democrats that are running in purple and red states and districts who have...

    Want to get a whole bunch of people to really, really care about climate change and rising sea levels? Tell them their internet is at risk. In a new study, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University of Oregon found that thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable are at risk of drowning under the rising seas. This isn’t something that will happen in the distant future, but could be a reality in just 15 years, the study suggests. Better backup your Tumblr.

    Mic reporter Emily Singer has deleted a tweet and apologized after stating that an alleged Russian spy who was recently arrested was photographed in the Oval Office in 2017. "I thought this was a photoshop, but its not. This is Maria Butina --- arrested for being a spy --- in the Oval Office with Trump," Singer originally wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning. The woman in the photo was quickly confirmed by other outlets to actually be National Security Council staffer Cari Lutkins. The photo was retweeted nearly 4,000 times and liked more than 5,800 times before Singer deleted it. "OK...
