  • Clinton, in newly revealed emails, discussed classified foreign policy matters, secretive 'private'

    A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton's personal email server revealed that the former secretary of state discussed establishing a "private, 100% off-the-record" back channel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that one of her top aides warned her that she was in "danger" of being "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" as a result of political machinations by "Bibi and the Jewish leadership." The 756-page group of new documents, revealed Thursday as part of a transparency lawsuit by Judicial Watch, seemingly contradicted Clinton's insistence...
  • President Trump Visits The Last Tank Plant In America, Which He Helped Save

    President Trump’s visit this week to the Army’s sole surviving tank plant in Lima, Ohio is the first such presidential visit there since George W. Bush stopped by in 2003. President Obama never visited, and the depressed level of military spending during his presidency nearly shut the place down. Wrongly assuming that Russia had ceased to be a threat to global security, the Obama administration cut the number of Army armored brigades to a record low of nine. Production of upgraded Abrams tanks at the Lima site fell to a single tank per month, and the Army seriously considered mothballing...

    February 20, 2019 America’s STEM Crisis Threatens Our National Security By Arthur Herman On October 4, 1957, a steel sphere the size of a beach ball and bristling with four radio antennae circled the Earth in eight minutes. Dubbed “Satellite-1,” or “PS-1” (Prosteyshiy Sputnik-1) by its Soviet fabricators, it was the first artificial Earth satellite. The Soviets had launched it into an elliptical low Earth orbit, where it stayed for three weeks before its batteries died. Then it continued silently in a decaying orbit for another two months before burning up in the atmosphere. Its radio signal pulses were easily...
  • HOW DEMOCRATS SPAWNED THE BORDER CRISIS: Sacrificing security on the altar of open borders.

    When I was growing up my mom sagely told me, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” For the past several decades, where actual border security and effective immigration law enforcement are concerned, the political elites of both parties have consistently exclaimed, “No way!” Rather than devise strategies to effectively enforce our immigration laws, secure our borders and deter massive illegal immigration, our political leaders worked mightily to devise excuses and subterfuges to scam Americans by perpetrating Theft By Deception: The Immigration Con Game. Politicians from both parties have declared that since we cannot deport all of the illegal...

    Full title: Southwest Airlines declares an 'operational emergency' due to grounded jets and 'threatens to fire mechanics who don't show up for work' as hundreds of planes are delayed or canceled Southwest Airlines has declared an 'operational emergency' due to grounded jets and threatened to fire mechanics who don't show up for work, according to reports. In a company memo seen by CNBC the carrier said notes from doctors were needed if they were 'alleging illness' after an unusually high number of planes needed maintenance work. Hundreds of their planes were delayed Friday, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware. Up to...
  • Experts: Legal challenges to Trump emergency declaration face uphill battle

    Democratic lawmakers, states and others mulling legal challenges to President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to obtain funds to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall face an uphill and probably losing battle in a showdown likely to be decided by the conservative-majority Supreme Court, legal experts said. After being rebuffed by the U.S. Congress in his request for $5.7 billion to help build the wall that was a signature 2016 campaign promise, Trump on Friday invoked emergency powers given to the president under a 1976 law. The move, according to the White House, enables Trump to bypass lawmakers and redirect money...
  • JW Inside Report: How the Deep State Risked National Security over the Awan Bros. Scandal

    In this episode of “JW Inside Report,” investigative reporter Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller discusses his findings on the Awan Bros/Democrat IT scandal in his new book “Obstruction of Justice.” A Democratic IT staffer named Imran Awan was arrested in July 2017 on charges of bank fraud. He was employed with Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other congressional members. He is also a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, having been banned from congressional networks earlier in the year. In addition, his relatives, also government IT employees, are currently being investigated for alleged involvement in defrauding the federal government as well...

    2006 Border Fence Act. A wall along the southern border of the United States is legal, and necessary. And, the executive branch has the authority to use funding for national security and other executive functions to take care that the southern border barrier is erected. Article IV., Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution requires the federal government to protect the States from invasion. The word “invasion” is not just a military term. In our current dictionary it is also defined as an “unwanted encroachment,” of which hordes (and caravans) of persons who refuse to abide by U.S. Immigration Law upon...

    Is Kamala Harris Another Barack Obama? Monday, February 4, 2019 -- AND WILL THE MEDIA QUESTION THE CONFLICTING NARRATIVES? by Sharon Rondeau (Feb. 4, 2019) — On January 21, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) officially announced her intent to seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in a much-anticipated television appearance following initial reports and speculation that she would run. As was the case with Barack Hussein Obama, the media has not questioned whether or not Harris is constitutionally eligible to hold the office.

    Say what? Just a couple of weeks ago, Donald Trump went on national television to make an offer to trade a three-year extension of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs for $5.7 billion in border-wall funding. In an interview with the Daily Caller published today, Trump reversed course and said no concessions would be made on DACA until the Supreme Court took up the challenges to its constitutionality: President Donald Trump cast doubt on speculation that he may be willing to offer up concessions on the DACA program in exchange for border...

    Imran Awan worked as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s email server administrator in the House of Representatives.

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday said that the idea that President Trump was a threat to national security was “absolutely ludicrous” after the New York Times reported that the FBI launched an investigation into whether Trump posed such a threat. “I’m not going to comment on New York Times stories but I’ll certainly say this: The notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous,” Pompeo said on CBS’ "Face the Nation” in an interview to be aired Sunday....{snip} The timing of the investigation raises questions as both Comey and FBI lawyer Lisa...

    Tweets and video at link. Sarah Huckabee Sanders and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta sparred on social media on Thursday after the White House press secretary thanked Acosta for bolstering the Trump administration's argument for a border wall. Acosta posted images from the border near McAllen, Texas, of a steel-slat barrier, chain-link fence and razor-wire, and reported there was "no sign of the national emergency that the president's been talking about." His tweet came as President Trump visited the area to drum up support for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border amid an ongoing government shutdown. "When I went with...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump Thursday of a set-up in their meeting a day earlier, when the president walked out after she told him she’ll never allow him funding for his border wall. Mrs. Pelosi also questioned the president’s motives, saying he’s negotiating from a position of weakness. “I don’t even know if the president wants the wall. He wants a debate on the wall,” she said. The California Democrat has said she would allow a single dollar to go to the wall if it ended the shutdown but has said the president’s current $5.7 billion request is...

    President Trump is expected to use Tuesday evening’s Oval Office address to tout statistics showing a dramatic influx of families, drugs and criminals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, as he makes the case that the situation is a humanitarian and national security crisis necessitating an effective physical barrier. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, in briefings with lawmakers, has cited administration figures showing 161,000 family units crossed the border in fiscal 2018, a stunning 50 percent increase from the year before. She has also said 60,000 unaccompanied children crossed the border last year, a 25 percent increase. “More children and families are...

    Ahead of his Oval Office address on the southern border crisis, New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says President Donald Trump must make the case to the American people that the border wall is the “compassionate solution” to stopping wage-crushing illegal immigration. During an exclusive interview on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Coulter said Trump must make the humanitarian case for ending illegal immigration straight to the American people, noting that amnesty for illegal aliens must immediately be ruled out. Coulter said: I would also go to all of the working class that are in...

    The White House can use unspent funds to build a wall if President Donald Trump declares a national emergency and fends off various lawsuits, say lawyers cited in media reports. The New York Times reported: The Trump administration could point to two laws and say they allow officials to proceed with building a border wall without first obtaining explicit authorization and appropriations from Congress, according to Elizabeth Goitein, who oversaw the Brennan Center’s study and is a co-director of its Liberty and National Security Program. One of the laws permits the secretary of the Army to halt Army civil works...

    Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story once marveled, “How easily men satisfy themselves that the Constitution is exactly what they wish it to be.” If Story returned to life today, he would find these to be familiar times, as politicians and pundits have decided that the Constitution bars an action by President Trump, even when they reached the diametrically opposite conclusion on similar actions that were taken by President Obama. In the latest “constitutional crisis” declared on Capitol Hill, Democrats are adamant that they will not fund the signature pledge of Trump to build a border wall. In response, Trump has...
