  • Compelling Mexico to Pay for the Wall

    05/05/2016 8:47:45 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux
    Introduction: The provision of the Patriot Act, Section 326 - the "know your customer" provision, compelling financial institutions to demand identity documents before opening accounts or conducting financial transactions is a fundamental element of the outline below. That section authorized the executive branch to issue detailed regulations on the subject, found at 31 CFR 130.120-121. It's an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year. There are several ways to compel Mexico to pay for the wall including the following: On day 1...

  • Hillary Clinton is walking into Donald Trump’s trap

    WaPo ^ | 5 May 2016 | Danielle Allen
    Donald Trump has set a big, fat trap for Hillary Clinton, and so far she has stepped right into it. He turned his attacks against women against her. She is, he argued, playing the “woman card.” And Clinton anted up, offering her supporters the chance to buy a “woman card.” From now until Nov. 8, Trump will surely continue to insult women. If Clinton routinely responds to those attacks, Trump will turn her into the “women’s candidate,” and she will lose. She is already perilously close to being that candidate. Let’s be honest. Polling shows that Trump has a problem...

    In an interview with NBC “Nightly News” on Wednesday night, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump again said he would seek to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States: “Yes, they're going to be deported. Look, we either have a country, or we don't. We have many illegals in the country. And we have to get them out, and go through a process, go through a system. And ones that have done well and have really achieved, we want to bring 'em back in.”

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a law offering a hectare (2.5 acres) of land for free in Russia's Far East. The move, which is open to all Russian citizens, aims to boost the population and the economy in the vast remote region. Estimates by Russia's Minister for the Development of the Far East, Aleksandr Galushka, predicts that the project could increase the region's population to 36 million people, from the current 6.4 million. According to the bill, the land will be free of payment or tax for five years and may be used for any lawful purpose. However,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Polling? Who needs to do that? Fundraising? Can't be bothered. Parse your words? Fuhgetabout it. Donald Trump took the rules of modern politics, trashed them and became the last man standing for the Republican nomination anyway. 12 ways Trump did it his way: SAY ANYTHING It's what Trump's supporters love about him: He blurts out whatever pops into his head. He rejects "political correctness." He insults rivals and critics. He has fun. After one particularly salty salvo, Trump explained, "That's what I mean about being politically correct, every once in a while you can have a little...

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Pakistani police on Thursday arrested 15 members of a tribal council accused of ordering the burning alive of a young girl for helping a couple to elope in a so-called "honour killing", police said. The 16-year-old girl was set on fire last week in the town of Donga Gali, about 50 km (30 miles) northeast of the capital, Islamabad, on the orders of the council, said district police chief Saeed Wazir. Police said the honour killing was ordered as punishment for what the council deemed irreparable damage to the village's reputation. The couple appeared to have escaped....

    Important questions linger about what went down in Paris If the November attacks on Paris have the fingerprints of a foreign intelligence service on them, mimicking the DRS relationship with GIA, where dimwitted jihadists don’t realize they are being set up, the list of potential suspects presents itself at once. It’s long been understood by Western security services that ISIS and the Syrian regime are partners as well as enemies. Both seek to crush moderates, to make the struggle for Syria binary: Regime versus ISIS. Assad’s secret police, the cold-blooded mukhabarat, have penetrated Islamist groups with their agents for decades,...

    Billionaire refuses to walk back controversial policy Fresh off his massive victory in Indiana, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump told MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today that he would stick by his controversial policy on Muslim immigration because the migrant crisis is "destroying Europe". Trump's proposal to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most incendiary of the campaign, but the New York billionaire shows no signs of walking it back. Asked if he still believed "Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what's going on," Trump said...

    Weekly jobless claims, posted early Thursday, rose by 17,000 to 275,000, 14,000 more than expected. It was up from 257,000 reported last week, which was the lowest number since the early 1970′s. Coming off such low numbers, the increase Thursday wasn’t seen as that significant by strategists. Thomas Simons of Jefferies called it “a small pop” and said it was mostly due to seasonal factors.

After hearing Ivanka talk about her father in multiple interviews, there is no question that this young woman respects and feels very close to her father. She credits him with much of her professional success, which is quite impressive. During an interview at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women conference, Ivanka praised her father for being a good listener and leader. She said that she is the highest female executive at his...

    School boards have been vexing about their loss of authority over the schools they ostensibly govern. There is a solution to their problem, but it's not necessarily one they want to hear. "The public must be owners of the educational system and not simply the recipient of its services," Thomas J. Gentzel, the executive director of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) avers in the latest issue of the American School Board Journal (ASBJ). The ASBJ is published by the NSBA. "Without school boards and the leadership role they provide, education would be little more than just another public service,"...

That's what the governor said at his town hall meeting in Lewiston on Wednesday night. It would seem that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and the governor's wife, First Lady Ann LePage, are the only people who can stop LePage from running for Senate. "I said earlier that if I'm not into the Trump Administration, I will be running against Angus King," said LePage. "Now, don't tell my...

    Hillary Clinton’s team is reminding Americans that Donald Trump is so controversial, even Mitt Romney condemned him. A new video complied by Clinton’s digital team features Romney’s #NeverTrump speech in March spliced together with critical comments from other Republicans, such as Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, George Pataki, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush, and Ted Cruz. The video calls into question Trump’s ability to unite the party around his candidacy, citing Romney’s comments as a sign that the billionaire candidate is too controversial. “He needs therapy,” a clip of Jeb Bush announces, citing his “deep insecurity and weakness.”

    Of everyone in the MSM, Joe Scarborough has been widely seen as the most ardent Trump supporter--starting from the day Donald descended that escalator with Melania. Scarborough would argue he was merely offering dispassionate political analysis--saying that Trump's chances should be taken seriously while others were disdainfully dismissing him. But for those of us who watched Joe day in and day out during the primary season, there seemed to be something much more than green-eyeshade analysis going on. Scarborough revelled in every poll and primary result favorable to Trump. Which makes Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe so strange. Joe...

The news comes on the same day as IDF forces announced yet another breakthrough in the battle against Hamas's terror tunnels, unearthing the second attack tunnel into Israel in a matter of weeks.

Putting the retired neurosurgeon on the veep search committee, however, could generate some buzz among Trump supporters: a recent public-opinion survey found that voters want Trump to pick Carson as his running mate.

The Trump campaign is putting forward proposals to fix problems facing the nation, from the long waits for medical care at the VA to the impending collapse of Obamacare. Check out Trump’s economic plan, for starters. Unlike Hillary Clinton’s radical anti-business agenda, Trump’s plan would actually help unemployed Americans get back to work.

    It only takes a glance at what is occurring around the world to see Islam becoming the largest and most dominant way of life. Muslims are adhering to exactly what their doctrine ascribes, to make Islam dominant over all religions. So why then, do Christian pastors believe conversations with Muslims are so important? Do Christian pastors not have a responsibility to protect the church and its congregants from those who practice following the life of the prophet Muhammad, who was peaceful in the Meccan years, but became political and violent on his journey to Medina. “Good” Muslims are commanded to...

    The lives of nearly 400 death row inmates hang in the balance during oral arguments Thursday before Florida's Supreme Court, which will ultimately decide if their sentences should be reduced to life in prison. The hearing comes in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling earlier this year that found Florida's system of sentencing people to death unconstitutional. The nation's high court said Florida's system gave too much power to judges, rather than juries, in imposing capital punishment. The Florida Supreme Court will not rule Thursday but use the arguments to help decide whether to reduce the sentences of the...

At a CNN town-hall-style forum in March, Clinton asserted: “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” Coal country hasn’t forgotten the threat from the Democratic front-runner. A laid-off coal miner earlier this week confronted Clinton over her derogatory statement during a campaign stop in West Virginia, which holds its Democratic primary May 10....

    Donald Trump's vow to round up and deport all of America's undocumented immigrants if he is elected president could shrink the economy by around 2 percent, according to a study to be released on Thursday by conservative think tank the American Action Forum. The research adds to concerns about the Republican White House nominee's policy proposals, which range from tearing up international trade agreements to building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. About 6.8 million of the more than 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally are employed, according to government statistics. Removing them would cause...

    Publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters. “If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO. “If you listen or watch Hispanic media in the state...

    Billionaire Donald Trump set about unifying a fractured Republican party Thursday, fortified by the support of a key party leader as he launches into battle for the White House against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Late Wednesday the top Republican in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, publicly endorsed Trump's candidacy "to prevent what would be a third term of Barack Obama." "As the presumptive nominee, he now has the opportunity and the obligation to unite our party around our goals,” McConnell said in a statement. Trump's commanding victory in Indiana's primary Tuesday pushed remaining challengers Ted Cruz and then Ohio Governor...
  • Video: Hillary Confronted by Coal Miner Whose Jobs She Vowed to Destroy

    (Watch the video at the link) Hillary Clinton already has an issue with being truthful, but her latest waffling on coal — and, specifically, coal miners’ livelihoods — has most of the country crying foul. “Instead of dividing people the way Donald Trump does, let’s reunite around policies that will bring jobs and opportunities to all these undeserved poor communities,” Clinton boasted at a town hall meeting in March — immediately, hypocritically, and even jovially following up with this zinger: “So, for example, I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean, renewable...

  • As global temperatures rise, children must be central climate change debates

    Rising temperatures, rising sea levels and the increasing likelihood of extreme weather will all alter children's lives and the lives of their own children. And yet, children are largely left out of discussions about appropriate responses to climate change, according to a journal released by Princeton University and the Brookings Institution. The findings in this issue have clear implications for policymakers and researchers trying to tackle the many challenges that climate change poses: * Policies must be developed to prepare and adapt in the face of inevitable climate change. States, cities and communities throughout the world must promote preparedness and...

  • New administration rule would permit thousands of eagle deaths at wind farms

    The Obama administration is revising a federal rule that allows wind-energy companies to operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years, even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles. Under the plan announced Wednesday, companies could kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty -- nearly four times the current limit. Golden eagles could only be killed if companies take steps to minimize the losses, for instance, by retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe said the proposal will "provide a...

    Why the presumptive Republican presidential nominee may defy the conventional wisdom once again. After the departure of Ted Cruz and John Kasich, Donald Trump is now the Republican candidate for president. For many in the party, this will be the “Trumpacolypse,” as a Twitter hashtag has it. His unfavorable ratings are at 65%––70% with women, and up to 80% with blacks and Hispanics. With those numbers, a Clinton victory is assured, according to three-quarters of Republican “political insiders” polled by Politico. Such hysteria six months out from the general election is premature. Much of it reflects the Republican political class’s...
