    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s relationship with the truth tends to be borderline, at best, when it comes to the border.So it was this past week when he made a flurry of false or unsupported statements about immigration. He said, with no evidence, that migrants are plagued with disease. He asserted that Mexico has in effect agreed to pay for his border wall, even as he threatens a partial government shutdown if Congress doesn’t approve billions of dollars to build it. He twisted federal statistics to claim the recent arrest of 10 terrorists who don’t exist. On another front,...

  • Former election commissioner: Cohen and Trump didn't violate campaign finance law

    Trump-haters hoping the president’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, will provide the evidence needed to impeach the president and perhaps even “lock him up” are likely headed for a bitter disappointment. The Cohen guilty pleas are likely irrelevant to the fate of President Trump. That’s because in my judgment – as someone who served for two years as a member of the Federal Election Commission – the campaign finance law violations Cohen pleaded guilty to committing, allegedly at Donald Trump’s direction, aren’t really violations. If I’m right – that is, if Cohen didn’t really violate campaign finance law, despite his...

    State television praised the ‘modern’ tech despite photos revealing actor in costume A “hi-tech robot” shown on Russian state television has turned out to be a man in a suit. Russia-24 praised the ersatz android during coverage of a youth forum dedicated to robotics, boasting that “Robot Boris has already learned to dance and he’s not that bad”. But sharp-eyed bloggers were dubious. The Russian website TJournal listed questions about the robot’s performance: Where were Boris’s external sensors? Why did the robot make so many “unnecessary movements” while dancing? And why did the robot look like a person would fit...

    Turning on the tube this morning, you had to wonder whether you were actually watching Morning Joe, or a rerun of Saturday Night Live's satire of Mika Brzezinski's histrionics on the show. The doubt arose because Mika gave an exceptionally emotional performance that seemed like a virtual parody of the parody. As others spoke, Mika interrupted with excited yells. Check the mash-up below. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Video at link. Fox News host Jesse Watters took aim at his co-host Juan Williams during Tuesday's episode of "The Five," mocking Williams on-air and joking that his fellow co-host sounded as if he was on drugs. During a contentious debate between the two personalities over President Trump's planned wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Williams, who is an opinion columnist for The Hill, asserted that such a barrier would do little to stop drug trafficking, a top concern of the Trump administration, asserting that most trafficking occurs at legal ports of entry. "The bigger one is, the drugs that you...

An accompanying chart gives several examples of common terms that PETA has dubbed offensive to animals alongside handy replacement phrases.

    The Washington Times ^ | December 3, 2018 | Victor Morton
    Rep.-elect Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez got into a Twitter spat with former Gov. Mike Huckabee — and then went after his daughter. The former Arkansas governor was mocking the 28-year-old democratic socialist for comparing her election this November to the 1969 Moon landing. “Big difference. Moon landing was LUNAR, not LOONEY; Moon landing done by ppl who knew what they were doing…those who elected someone who thought there were 3 branches of Congress did NOT,” he wrote, alluding to one of many miscues on basic civics that the rising Democratic star has made in recent months. Both barrels came firing back. Ms....

    Winnie the Pooh had to grin and bear it after being banned from central Madrid while Chinese President Xi Jinping drove by, according to a report. A street performer who dresses up as the honey-hunting bear said cops asked him to stay away as Xi’s motorcade rumbled past Sol Square this week because the Chinese leader could have been offended if he saw the lovable character, The Telegraph reported. “If it’s offensive, I understand that they would ask me to step aside,” said the man, who was reminded that social media posts in China have compared Xi’s appearance to that...

    Comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Dana Carvey paid tribute to President George H.W. Bush on Friday night, telling late-night host Conan O'Brien just hours before the news of Bush's death that he enjoyed "many warm moments" with the first couple while lamenting the "scorched-earth, angry politics" of today. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, passed away Friday night at the age of 94. His wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, died in April. In 1992, Carvey performed at the White House at the invitation of Bush and the first lady at the annual Christmas party. “They welcomed...
  • Migrant caravan shows the destabilizing effect of climate change

    The estimated 5,000 impoverished Central Americans now pressed against our southern border have triggered a U.S. military deployment, strain on Tijuana’s social services, and heated immigration debate. But unfortunately, almost no one is talking about climate change, a root cause of the migration. Similar to California’s Camp Fire and recent severe hurricanes, we must recognize the caravan as a byproduct of climate change and a small preview of humanitarian crises to come.
