    During a Spanish interview with Telemundo, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed amnesty for what he referred to as the “11 million” illegal aliens living in the U.S. in defiance of the law. “For the 11 million people [who are here illegally], they must come out of the shadows, receive a work visa, start paying taxes and also pay a small fine, learn English, don’t receive government benefits, but they come out of the shadows and they receive legal status after some time,” Bush said on Monday, according to a translation provided by CNN. Bush starts out on the wrong...

    In an interview conducted solely in Spanish, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tells MSNBC he’s “hurt” by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s strident criticisms of Mexican criminal aliens coming across the border. “I was hurt hearing somebody speaking in such a vulgar fashion. This makes solving this problem much more difficult. When we have politicians like that we cannot progress,” said Bush according to a translator. “In a political sense it was bad, and it creates an environment that is worse.”

An Israeli official hit back at US Secretary of State John Kerry over the weekend following remarks that were perceived by the government in Jerusalem as "thinly veiled efforts to muzzle criticism" of the Iran nuclear agreement. Responding to Kerry's contention that Israel would face even more international isolation if Congress strikes down the Iran nuclear deal, the official told The New York Times on Saturday that the government would continue its public lobbying. “We reject the threats directed...

O'Malley, who has long been an advocate for illegal immigrant rights, has made amnesty a centerpiece of his campaign since he declared two months ago. His comments come in response to Texas health officials asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by immigrant parents who were denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children. "Denying birth certificates to U.S. citizens is not only outrageous, it's unconstitutional," O'Malley said in a statement on Friday. "The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution...

Republicans were unpersuaded—and said so—at an occasionally contentious Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that marked the opening of a new phase in the administration’s drive to prevent Congress from undermining the accord. “You guys have been bamboozled,” said Sen.

    Up to 87 percent of undocumented immigrants will be able to remain in the United States if the executive action measures on immigration taken by President Barack Obama are implemented without modifications, according to a study published by the Migration Policy Institute. The report by the independent immigration study center said that the net effect of the new policies will be a reduction in deportations from the United States. In all, 5.2 million immigrants would benefit from these immigration relief measures, but the MPI notes that the implementation of new guidelines for law enforcement and immigration authorities would broaden the...

The Times reported that fact deep in a story on the group’s efforts to evade and recover from American and Iraqi military strikes. Documents stolen and leaked to reporters by Snowden, who remains in hiding in Russia, have led to changes in IS operations that have prevented U.S. forces from gathering intelligence on the group, the Times reported.

    It’s a comfort to know the White House put up some token resistance before finally selling out what little leverage the American people’s representatives still had over this deal. This sounds like an international version of “failure theater.” Obama and Kerry planned all along to betray Congress by letting the UNSC vote on the Iran agreement first, but they had to at least nod at national sovereignty by arguing against it. They failed, but darn it, they sure tried. During the closed-door talks in Vienna on limiting Iran’s nuclear program, Secretary of State John Kerry argued that the United Nations...

    Defense: Even as the U.S. faces unprecedented security challenges, the Obama administration continues to slash the military. Cuts in funding and troop levels are leading to a dangerous lack of readiness. President Obama's most recent reduction in forces is a big one: The Army last week announced it would drop 40,000 soldiers from its ranks, a reaction to ongoing deep budget cuts. These cuts are real, deep and damaging — unlike spending in the rest of the federal government, where spending continues to rise. Since 2011, the Army's "base budget" has plummeted by nearly 18% in real terms.

The State Department said in a one-sentence statement on Wednesday that Kerry would leave for the Austrian capital on Friday. It will be his first overseas trip since breaking his leg in a bicycle accident earlier this month after a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Geneva.

    Allen Weinstein, a historian of Cold War espionage whose 1978 book, “Perjury: The Hiss-Chambers Case,” marshaled a mountain of new evidence to argue that Alger Hiss was guilty as charged in one of the most famous spy trials of the postwar era, and who served as the ninth national archivist of the United States, died on Thursday at a nursing home in Gaithersburg, Md. He was 77. The cause was pneumonia, his son Andrew said. He had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for several years. Making use of newly available F.B.I. documents totaling tens of thousands of pages, Mr. Weinstein...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)80% cast the deciding vote for Obamatrade on Tuesday as it squeeked through the U.S. Senate 60-37, and his Senate office is still outright refusing to answer whether he even knew what he was voting on.

    The NSA and its British counterpart the GCHQ have put extensive effort into hacking popular security software products to “track users and infiltrate networks,” according to the latest round of Snowden docs unearthed today by The Intercept. Cybersecurity companies, including the Moscow-headquartered Kaspersky Lab, were targeted by government agencies to gain intelligence of the latest exploits. Details of the security software’s inner workings were deciphered by agencies through a process called software reverse engineering (SRE), which allowed them to analyze and exploit the software suites. A top-secret warrant renewal request issued by the GCHQ details the motivations behind infiltrating the...

    He switched languages 27 minutes into his announcement speech. "Ayúdennos en tener una campańa que les da la bienvenida--Help us to have a campaign that welcomes you," Jeb Bush said to a crowd of supporters Monday. "Work with us for the values we share and for a great future that is ours to build for our children." For a man who started learning Spanish as a teenager, married a Mexican woman, lived three years in Venezuela and was the governor of Florida for eight years, switching languages wasn't that difficult ... it was expected by the roughly 3,000 supporters, many...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)He wasn’t supposed to say it, but he couldn’t help himself. John Ellis Bush, former Governor of Florida let’er rip. He said exactly what a careful review of the transcript reveals he was supposed to avoid during his announcement for president speech at Miami Dade College. It appeared that Jeb Bush, or just “Jeb” as the signs and placards read to distinguish him from the field and other Bushes before him, was not going to mention comprehensive immigration reform. Not here, not in this speech. This speech was intended to show him for what he is, a devoted father, son...

    War On Terror: Rushing to empty Gitmo, President Obama has freed three bin Laden bodyguards, ignoring warnings they'd rejoin al-Qaida. Given high recidivism rates of already released inmates, what could go wrong? Chances are that the terrorists will return to the battlefield or carry out other acts of terror against the U.S. Obama's own intelligence czar has documented that nearly 30% of prisoners transferred from the Cuban prison have been confirmed or suspected of having re-engaged in terrorist activities.

    In the two years since the Edward Snowden saga went public, a handful of people who actually understand the Western signals intelligence system have tried to explain the many ways that the Snowden Operation has smeared NSA and its partners with salacious charges of criminality and abuse. I’ve been one of the public faces of what may be called the Snowden Truth movement, and finally there are signs that reality may be intruding on this debate. No American ally was rocked harder by Snowden’s allegations than Germany, which has endured a bout of hysteria over charges that NSA was listening...

    While UK government officials are said to have been briefing the Sunday Times that the Russians and the Chinese have managed to “crack” the encryption on the Snowden files, cyber-security experts have been casting doubt on the credibility of the story. The Sunday Times reported this weekend that the top-secret cache of files stolen by Edward Snowden from his former employer the NSA had been decrypted by Russia and China, forcing MI6 to pull agents out of live operations in hostile countries. The story was built around anonymous briefings by officials from Downing Street, the Home Office and the security...

    MI6 has pulled its spies out of 'hostile countries' and America's intelligence agencies are on high alert after Russia and China cracked encrypted files leaked by fugitive whistleblower Edward Snowden. The top-secret documents contain information that could lead to the identification of British and American spies, according to senior officials in Downing Street, the Home Office and the security services. A senior Home Office official accused Snowden - the former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor responsible for the biggest confidential information leak in US history - of having 'blood on his hands' after they gained access to over one million...
