    "Confidentiality protections extend to the ordinary taxpayer and the President alike," the D.C. Circuit said in a ruling Tuesday that upheld the dismissal of a suit seeking Trump's tax records. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday upheld a ruling dismissing an attempt to overcome IRS privacy rules to acquire President Donald Trump’s tax returns through a public-records lawsuit. The Electronic Privacy Information Center attempted to use a Freedom of Information Act request to get the president’s tax returns, which he has withheld citing a pending Internal Revenue Service audit. Legal experts contend nothing prohibits the...

    Video at link. Mary Ann Mendoza displays picture of son killed by illegal alien. (Screenshot) Mothers who have had children killed by illegal aliens are rallying at a San Diego, California port of entry this week to demand Congress fund construction of a border wall. Angel Families Founder Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son, Police Officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed by an illegal alien, says recent comments by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) opposing wall funding prompted her to hold a press conference: “Angel Families decided that we needed to do a press conference here at a...

    House Democrats are making plans for a prolonged shutdown that will begin Saturday if the White House and lawmakers are unable to work out an agreement on President Trump’s demands for $5 billion in funding for his wall on the Mexican border. “We're making contingency plans for a long-term shutdown,” said one Democratic House aide, who pointed to the possibility that the partial government shutdown would last into the beginning of the new Congress, when Democrats will take over the House majority. “If the shutdown goes until Jan. 3, we'll bring up a funding bill,” the aide said. Democrats, after...
  • The Truth Emerges: US Border Patrol Not Responsible For Young Girl's Death, Her Father Confirms

    Last week, politicians and members of the media expressed outrage over the tragic death of a seven-year-old girl who died shortly after illegally crossing the US border with her father.  The details of her passing are heart-wrenching.  Border hawks blamed her parent for putting her life at risk by bringing her on the dangerous journey, while critics of the president's approach to immigration policy held up the incident as an example of the administration's inhumanity and callousness.  Many in the press certainly had their preferred framing: The 7-year-old was excited about a new life in the U.S. Maybe she would...

    Social media sensations and Fox Nation hosts Diamond & Silk slammed Nancy Pelosi for her stance in the border security funding battle, calling the Democratic leader "out of touch." Pelosi on Thursday called out President Trump for threatening a government shutdown over Congress' failure to approve funding for border security -- including his long-promised wall -- saying the American people don't want a "Trump shutdown." On "Fox & Friends" Friday, Lynnette "Diamond" Hardaway said Trump has followed through on his promise to boost the economy, and now it's time for Congress to approve wall funding so he can follow through...

    (CBSLA/AP) — Thousands of teachers who may go on strike against the nation’s second-largest school district next month marched and rallied in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday. United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union estimates 50,000 were there. The crowd had relief from overcrowding at the top of their wish list. **SNIP** UTLA teachers and supporters wore red for unity. They are seeing red over LAUSD’s reluctance to part with more green. “I want to see investment in the schools and in the kids,” said LAUSD parent Carmen Montecito.

    Do politicians oppose term limits on principle?For the answer to be yes, we would first have to explain to them what principles are. Yet, even beyond consideration of such thorny truths, or their visceral flashing-a-cross-to-a-vampire reaction to the two words “term limits,” are politicians — even the most career-obsessed, decades-long incumbents — unalterably opposed to term limits?Not a trick question. Sure, politicians adamantly oppose term limits that cut against their self-interest, i.e. have the audacity to apply to them. But they are often for term limits . . . when the limitation applies to others.Meaning, of course, that our congresspeople are...

    Why should the U.S. build a better wall on the southern border? House Majority Whip Steve Scalise offered a clear and candid rationale during a Fox News appearance this week, telling host Mark Levin that 10 known terrorists are captured each day trying to breach the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protections also informed Congress that 3,029 people were apprehended in one day this month — deeming the occurrence a crisis. Meanwhile, 21 percent of all potential migrants — an astonishing 158 million people — would like to come live in America if they could, according to a Gallup analysis,...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded Wednesday after CNN accused President Donald Trump of making up statistics about illegal immigration. Trump claimed during a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this week that terrorists are illegally immigrating to the United States. “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists. We caught 10 terrorists over a short period of time,” Trump said. CNN anchor Jim Sciutto asserted multiple times that Trump was incorrect, writing, “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short...

    The solipsistic socialist is twisting the dragon’s tail.Nancy Pelosi should be happier than she seems. The Democrats recently harvested enough votes to retake the House of Representatives, and she will again be elected Speaker of that body in January. But a lot has changed since 2011, when she last held the gavel. She isn’t accustomed to being ambushed on live television by the President about border security, or having newly minted members of her own caucus demand the creation of select committees while encouraging activists to besiege her office. Pelosi no doubt feels nostalgic about Barack Obama and Joe Crowley...

    WASHINGTON - Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will begin to seek President Donald Trump’s tax returns - a move likely to prompt outrage from the White House - when they take control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January. The House Ways and Means Committee will “take the first steps,” said Pelosi, who has the backing of her members to become the next speaker of the House in January. “There is popular demand for the Congress to request the president’s tax returns,” she said, speaking to reporters. “I’m sure the White House will resist, so the question is where do...
  • John Kass: Chuck, Nancy, Donald and 'The Wall'

    12/13/2018 8:21:26 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 26 replies
    After it was over, Chuck mumbled as if he’d just had unmentionable outpatient surgery. And Nancy bragged about how she was “the mom” in the room, before she veered off to a treatise on skunk urination fights while questioning the president’s “manhood.” We can at least thank Pelosi for having the decency not to hold up her hands. But when a gentlewoman like Nancy Pelosi feels compelled to discuss skunk urine in the most vulgar terms, while putting her “I was trying to be the mom” in the same rhetorical stew as her ruminations on “manhood,” it suggests she’s lost...

    Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) huddled Monday night in the Capitol as the push for term limits for committee chairmanships and leadership spots heats up among House Democrats. A number of senior CBC members are in line to take committee gavels next Congress and the group has quickly rallied against the notion that gavels would be term-limited just as they're about to ascend to those chairmanship seats. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who's seeking another stint as House Speaker, has been in talks with members of a small group of anti-Pelosi insurgents about adopting a cap on the number...

    For the first time since the 2018-midterm elections, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with President Trump at the White House Tuesday. Their meeting was originally supposed to be closed press, but that all changed when the White House press pool was invited into the Oval Office to broadcast their remarks. President Trump started the meeting by thanking Pelosi and Schumer for showing up and made his case for additional border security. "I am proud to shut down the government over border security," Trump said. "I will take the mantle." "They're pouring into our...

    Experts decry 'pie in the sky' environmental plan Since sweeping into Congress atop a wave of far-left support, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) has been very clear what her number one goal is: a Green New Deal for America. The freshman congresswoman first attracted attention to the proposal when she joined more than 200 protesters staging a sit-in in support of a GND in Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D., Calif.) office. Since then and with Ocasio-Cortez's backing, the idea has swept through left-leaning media, attracting fawning reviews. It also has the support of a number of prominent left-wing environmental activists:...

    Everybody knows San Francisco is the city with glittering streets — well, glittering because of all the puddles of shattered glass from car break-ins. But there’s another pervasive property crime here that doesn’t get as much attention because there’s no evidence left behind. It’s called “porch piracy,” and it’s the swiping of packages off people’s front steps. All that’s left is an empty doorstep and the resident’s frustration.

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said Thursday that Democrats are closely monitoring fraud allegations in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District but said they would only call for a new election if it’s impossible to determine the winner. “The House Administration Committee will have full investigative authority to determine the winner of the election,” Pelosi said. “And … only if it’s impossible to determine who the winner is, would we take the extraordinary step of calling for a new election.” The midterm results in North Carolina’s 9th District have been embroiled in controversy since a number of voters have emerged...
