  • California becomes 'sanctuary state' as Gov. Brown defies Trump administration

    California became a “sanctuary state” on Thursday as Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation protecting illegal immigrants in defiance of the Trump administration. The bill, approved by the state’s legislature last month, bars police from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases starting Jan. 1. California is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants. In a written statement, Brown stressed that the law would not prohibit federal immigration officials from doing their jobs and would allow sheriffs to grant federal agents access to jails. But he said it prevents the...

    ISTANBUL — I have been a member of Turkish Parliament representing Istanbul for the opposition Republican People’s Party for the past six years. It has forced me to become a specialist in the Turkish prison system as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (A.K.P.) government has increasingly persecuted politicians, activists, professionals and all sorts of citizens who oppose his rule and arrested thousands after the failed coup attempt last July. I began by visiting five political prisoners in 2011. Now I visit over 50, who form a tiny fraction of the detainees. Among those I visit are journalists...

    Months before her secret airport meeting with Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch went on television and promised the American people that Hillary Clinton would not receive special treatment. On March 10, Lynch appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The host asked Lynch if Clinton would be indicted for risking national security by setting up private servers to conduct government business while at the State Department. Lynch assured Colbert and his audience that her Justice Department would act "fairly" and "independently" and that anyone with a "famous name" or "political interest" would be treated...
  • Clintons Did Not Obtain Permits to Renovate Their New Chappaqua Home, Records Show

    Hillary and Bill Clinton purchased a second home in Chappaqua, N.Y., on the same street as their current one, seen here in 2000. It is a necessary evil for any homeowner: a visit to the town building office to obtain the proper permits for upgrades. Hillary and Bill Clinton apparently skipped that required step when they began ambitiously renovating the house they purchased for $1.16 million this summer in the upscale New York hamlet of Chappaqua, according to records from the town building inspector. Those records, first reported and posted online by The Journal News, based in White Plains,...

    The lawlessness of the Obama administration has been astounding. Entire books have been written about President Obama’s notion that he should be and is free to do whatever he wants (such as Lawless by Professor David Bernstein, which I wrote about here). No doubt more will be. One remarkably brazen instance I recently learned about is his administration’s funneling of money from lawsuit settlements into the pockets of left-wing activist groups. It makes you wonder if there is anything this administration won’t try to get away with. Following the collapse of the housing bubble, the federal government initiated several grandstanding,...

    Donald Trump rallies are known to draw a large crowd of supporters and protestors — but a little known law supported by President Obama in 2012 demands Secret Service stop protests among any of the officials they’re charged to protect. Slate writer Dahlia Lithwick reported back in 2012 that President Obama signed an anti-protest bill into law prohibiting anyone from “knowingly… impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” in locations guarded by the Secret Service. That includes speeches made by the Republican frontrunner and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, who has Secret Service protection for...

    A former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says the U.S. strategy toward the Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) “is not working.” Michael Morell said recent attacks by the terrorist group in Paris and on a Russian passenger plane show it’s time for the U.S. to reconsider its strategy. “I think it’s now crystal clear to us that our strategy, our policy vis-à-vis ISIS is not working, and it’s time to look at something else,” Morell said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. He said the U.S. may need to rethink its opposition to Syrian President Bashar...

    Esteban Torres was 3 years old when his father was sent back to Mexico by U.S. immigration authorities. "One day, my father didn't come home," remembers Torres, who lived with his family in a mining camp in Arizona at the time. "My brother and I were left without a father. We never saw him again." Torres, 85, who went on to become a congressman representing the Pico Rivera area, was part of a generation of people whose lives were changed dramatically by large-scale deportation campaigns during the 1930s, '40s and '50s in which millions of Mexican nationals were rounded up...

    Nov 11 2015, 11:05 am ET Trump's Immigration Solution: Bring Back Controversial 'Operation Wetback' by Sandra Lilley On Tuesday night's Republican presidential debate and again on Wednesday morning, GOP candidate Donald Trump touted the controversial 1950s "Operation Wetback" program as a way of dealing with the nation's approximately 11 million immigrants currently without legal status. Under the Eisenhower program, immigrants inside the U.S. were rounded up and deported to remote places, resulting in deaths and criticism of human rights abuses. On NPR Wednesday morning, conservative Republican Alfonso Aguilar slammed Trump's comments. "The Eisenhower mass deportation policy was tragic," said Aguilar....

    Hillary Rodham Clinton has undertaken another mission with her presidential campaign: to rehabilitate the battered image of longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin. The steps Mrs. Clinton has taken to raise the profile of Ms. Abedin in the campaign include using her prominently in a fundraising email and deploying her to Twitter for the first time. The email featuring Ms. Abedin was released with the subject line, “I believe in Hillary — do you? It was the first time that Ms. Abedin, who serves as vice chairwoman of Hillary for America but remains mostly behind the scenes, stepped out to...

    The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has become a lightning rod for controversy under President Obama, with its aggressive actions fueling sustained warfare between business and labor. From the labor board’s bitter fight with Boeing, to the creation of new union election rules, the NLRB has repeatedly moved to the forefront of political debate, drawing in Congress, the White House and even the Supreme Court. The NLRB’s latest bombshell was dropped on Thursday, when the board determined the waste management agency Browning-Ferris should be considered a “joint employer” of temporary workers. The decision expands the definition of what it means...

The new measures would bypass limits on travel imposed by Congress by changing regulations at the executive level.

    Two days after the killing of Cecil the lion sparked a firestorm on social media, the United States government announced that it will investigate the death of the prized African creature.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said on Twitter Thursday that the government agency is currently “investigating” the killing of the lion, allegedly carried out by Minnesota dentist Dr. Walter Palmer.“We’re investigating the killing of #CecilTheLion. Will go where facts lead. We ask Dr. Palmer or his rep to contact USFWS immediately,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service tweeted. “We share your concern about the issue surrounding #CeciltheLion and we’re...

    The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction halting President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times. The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year work permits (as opposed to the currently permissible two-year permits) to illegal immigrants granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

    There has been a flurry of procedural developments in the lawsuit filed by 26 states in a Texas federal court against President Obama’s amnesty plan for 5 million illegal aliens. On March 19, Justice Department lawyers — and officials of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) — will be in the hot seat at a hearing scheduled by Judge Andrew Hanen. Sitting in the dock, they will have to explain whether they misled (others might say “lied to”) the court. Or, as Hanen put it in formal judge-speak: “be prepared to fully explain to this Court all of the matters...

    Valerie Jarrett says she plans on staying in the White House until the end of President Barack Obama’s term. In an interview with The New York Times Magazine published Friday, the president’s senior adviser discussed politics and policy and made clear that she wants to stick around until Jan. 20, 2017. “Oh, my goodness, I intend to stay until the lights go off,” Jarrett said. “Why would I miss a single second of this?” Asked whether she ever gets surprised at people describing her influence over Obama in terms similar to those used to describe Vice President Dick Cheney’s in...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. vowed a firm response on Friday to what he called “appalling” racial misconduct by law enforcement officials in Ferguson, Mo., suggesting he was prepared to seek the dismantling of the police force there if necessary. “We are prepared to use all the powers that we have, all the power that we have, to ensure that the situation changes there,” Mr. Holder told reporters here after returning from Columbia, S.C., where he appeared with President Obama at a town hall-style meeting at Benedict College. “That means everything from working with them to coming up with...

    Are we seeing Cloward-Piven snowballing right now? My head has been spinning almost from the first day of Obama's presidency with the endless scandals, lawlessness, arrogance, destructive policies foreign and domestic, the breakdown of the system of checks and balances, the utter lack of accountability for openly corrupt behavior, attacks on the social fabric of the country, rabid race baiting and class warfare and on and on. But, it seems to me that these last several months since the midterms, everything seems to have accelerated and metastasized to a whole new level. Obama is openly pushing Iranian nukes, Obama is...
