    Even with the midterm elections looming, Republican leaders in Congress made clear this week they're paying close attention to a looming battle over President Donald Trump's promised border wall. On Monday, House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted a "big fight" over border security on the horizon, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that the GOP is "committed" to working to secure the funding the President wants for his signature campaign pledge.
  • Drones swamp US-Mexico border but federal agents powerless to stop them

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12 OCT 2018 | Anna Giaritelli
    The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI identified this week unmanned aerial systems, or drones, as one of the greatest national security threats to America — rating it as severe a concern as cybersecurity hacks, critical infrastructure attacks, and terrorism. While drones are often thought of as techie toys, officials are becoming increasingly worried about the threat they pose and are warning it's only a matter of time until the devices are used to drop a bomb or fentanyl powder on people in a populated area. Drones are already used by transnational criminal syndicates and drug cartels. The technology...
  • Deranged media gets Trump advisor Stephen Miller’s 3rd grade teacher to badmouth him (And Rabbi)

    Legal Insurrection ^ | October 11, 2018 | William A. Jacobson
    So many lines have been crossed by Democrats and their supportive media, IÂ’m not sure there are any lines left. Stephen Miller, advisor to Trump, is hated by Democrats and other leftists because of his role helping elect Trump and MillerÂ’s strong positions on immigration. MillerÂ’s condo building has been the subject of protests. The New York Times investigated MillerÂ’s high school and college years: Mr. MillerÂ’s journey to this point, outlined over dozens of interviews with friends, classmates and current and former colleagues, is a triumph of unbending convictions and at least occasional contrivance. It is a story of...

  • Kavanaugh backs Trump on jailing and deporting immigrants for crimes committed years earlier

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | October 10, 2018 | David G. Savage
    Newly seated Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke up Wednesday in defense of the Trump administration’s view that legal immigrants with criminal records can be arrested and held for deportation, even years after they were convicted and completed their sentences. At issue is a federal law that calls for mandatory detention and possible deportation for “criminal aliens,” including legal immigrants convicted of crimes ranging from violent felonies to simple drug possession. The law says the Homeland Security secretary “shall take into custody any alien” with a criminal record that could lead to deportation “when the alien is released.” The debate focuses on...

    The London Telegraph ^ | October 10, 2018 | Hugh Morris, Travel News Editor
    The controversial presidency of Donald Trump is not having a negative impact on the American tourism industry, the man in charge of marketing the US to the world has told Telegraph Travel. A number of sources earlier this year and last reported that the number of international visitors to America was down as much as 5 per cent, losing the US economy up to Ł140million a week, according to the Global Business Travel Association. The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) said that arrivals fell by 4 per cent in the first six months of 2017, in the wake of...
  • Give Us The Wall: House GOP Plans Full Blown Legislative Assault On Illegal Immigration

    Maybe there are three dividends that Republicans are reaping from their victory over liberals during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court fight. The base is jacked up for the midterms, we confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, giving conservatives a SCOTUS majority for the next generation, and it allowed the House GOP leadership to get some chutzpah on fighting illegal immigration. Yes, you read that, right? We’ve demanded a wall, going after sanctuary cities, securing the border, and enforcing current federal immigration laws. Now, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) pretty much promised full legislative offensive against illegal immigration (via CBS News): House...

    "'Exclusive — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Introducing Bill to Fully Fund Border Wall, Making Midterm Immigration Referendum"" House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will introduce a bill this week that will fully fund President Donald Trump’s planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, thereby setting the midterm elections up as a referendum on immigration policy, Breitbart News has learned exclusively. Outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan hinted at a post-election border wall funding fight on Monday. “We intend on having a full-fledged discussion on how to complete our mission to secure the border, and yes, we will have a fight about...

    Talk about a Freudian slip, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, with a slip of the tongue, voiced what anyone paying attention already knows, that being that there are no moderate Democrats left. Doing what Democrats do best, projecting and flipping the narrative, the head of the party who called un accomplished democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez its “future,” appeared on MSNBC to suggest the GOP is the party of extremists — except his tongue couldn’t keep up with his deceptive mind. “When you see the mistreatment of Dr. Ford, that’s a mistreatment of every woman across America,” Perez declared. “When...

    The Resurgent ^ | October 5, 2018 | Erick Erickson
    I have long been critical of Republicans who abandoned principles to stand with Trump and I am as critical of Republicans who abandon principles to oppose Trump. Principle should stay because people go. The Kavanaugh nomination has been clarifying in this regard. Seeing some conservatives willing to aid and abet character assassins because Trump nominated Kavanaugh is disgusting. I find myself in an odd position where, for the first time, I see myself, one of the original so-called “Never Trump conservatives,” voting for President Trump in 2020. I have inevitably concluded at times that Trump would do something to push...

    Now that the highly contentious confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh is winding down, will the resolution dampen the fervor of recent activism? In the past two weeks, protesters have interrupted Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, blocked the streets around the Capitol, sung on the steps of the Supreme Court, occupied a Senate building, and much more — including calling for a national day of action today. In fact, survivors who confronted Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in a Senate elevator live on CNN may have pushed him to call for an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against...

    The Hill ^ | 10/05/18 | LYDIA WHEELER
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday rejected a request from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to temporarily block an order requiring Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and another official to sit for a deposition in lawsuits challenging their decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. DOJ has also asked the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to quash Ross’s deposition. Ginsburg is letting that request, which is scheduled to be reviewed on Oct. 9, play out first. “The application is denied without prejudice, provided that the Court of Appeals will afford sufficient time for either party to seek relief...

    The second episode of CBS’s rebooted version of the political comedy Murphy Brown aired October 4 and the chosen hot-button issues to punch were: bashing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ honesty and the introduction of a DACA student. If it were not for lame liberal talking points, this show would have no dialogue.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last Wednesday regarding a letter delivered to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) in which an anonymous woman claims she was repeatedly raped by the judge without providing any details to investigate. According to committee transcripts released Sunday, the accuser, who signed the mysterious letter as “Jane Doe,” alleges Kavanaugh and a friend raped her “several times” after giving her a lift home from a party — making no attempt to claim a time or place for the lurid story. The letter, marked with the word “urgent,” did not include a return...

    In many ways Austin, Texas, was the last place Beto O’Rourke should have been with just over a month left until a pivotal U.S. Senate election. The deep-blue city, smack dab in the middle of a deep-red state, likely doesn’t have many of the undecided voters the Democrat, whose aggressive challenge to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has become somewhat of a national fascination, needs to win this November. So in front of a crowd estimated at 55,000 people, a truly impressive number for a U.S. Senate race, with the Austin skyline behind him, O’Rourke fired up the crowd with an...

    Janitor's view ^ | 09/30/18 | Reasonmclucus
    For the last century control of the United States has cycled between the 19th Century Democratic and Republican parties. Voters choose between the old ideas of the Democratic Party and the old ideas of the Republican Party. The two parties are mired in the same old partisan conflicts election after election. The Democrats in particular seem more interested in playing partisan political games than in dealing seriously with the nation's problems. Republicans are increasingly following their example. Millennials need to decide whether they want to continue the politics of their grandparents' generation or replace the 19th Century parties with 21st...

    The decade-old program has been on hold since 2016 amid concerns that immigrant recruits were not being screened well enough, and security threats were slipping through the system. Defense officials shored up the vetting process, and planned to relaunch the program earlier this month. But there was an unexpected barrier when Homeland Security officials said they would not be able to protect new immigrant recruits from being deported when their temporary visas expired after they signed a contract to join the military, the U.S. officials said. They were not authorized to publicly describe internal discussions and spoke on condition of...

    Everyone who comes to America has a dream. But some of those dreams are good. And others are truly horrifying. Here's one DREAMER's dream. And a family's nightmare. An illegal immigrant from Mexico, accused of killing one person and injuring two others aboard a fishing vessel over the weekend, was reportedly allowed to stay in the U.S. as a DACA recipient. Fox News has exclusively learned that Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, 27, was an illegal alien in the U.S. until he was granted deferred action under the DACA program on Nov. 30, 2013. The program is aimed at children brought...

    A 52-year-old day care worker allegedly stabbed five people, including three baby girls no more than a month old, at an overnight facility in Queens early Friday, and cops say they found a butcher knife and meat cleaver at the scene. A 3-day-old girl and a 1-month-old girl were stabbed in the stomach; a 20-day-old girl had a laceration to her ear, chin and lip. All are in critical but stable condition, authorities said. Two other people, a father of a child at the day care and another woman who worked there, were also stabbed at the Flushing center just...
