Juan Guaidó has said he wants to get that food aid across the border and into the hands of starving people but Nicolas Maduro’s has ordered his security forces to block the border crossings and reportedly threatened truck drivers about bringing the food across the border.

Mr. Maduro, who has called Mr. Guaid an American lackey, has vowed not to let the aid in. The Brazil-border closure, announced on television, followed a Venezuelan government announcement on Wednesday that it would block air and sea travel between...

    From the very first day of the 2020 presidential race, when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts blamed generations of discrimination for black families earning far less than white households, Democratic hopefuls have broadly emphasized racial justice and closing the wealth gap in their policy platforms. But in recent weeks, some candidates have started embracing specific goals and overtly race-conscious legislation that even the most left-wing elected officials stayed away from in recent years. Last week, Senator Kamala Harris of California agreed with a radio hosts recent suggestion that government reparations for black Americans were necessary to address the legacies of...

    WASHINGTON The plan was straightforward: After years of being challenged by President Trump and others about a decades-old claim of Native American ancestry, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts would take a DNA test to prove her stated family origins in the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. But nearly two months after Ms. Warren released the test results and drew hostile reactions from prominent tribal leaders, the lingering cloud over her likely presidential campaign has only darkened. Conservatives have continued to ridicule her. More worrisome to supporters of Ms. Warrens presidential ambitions, she has yet to allay criticism from grass-roots progressive...

    The View co-host Meghan McCain confronted Andrew McCabe on Tuesday, asking the former FBI director point blank if he was a source for The New York Times. I dont believe youre a reliable narrator and Im not convinced this isnt just some kind of PR campaign to stop yourself from getting indicted, McCain said. "You were fired at the recommendation of the FBI, which, in your book, you cite four times how great of an organization it is, for your lack of candor.

    President Trump mounted one of the most serious executive branch challenges to congressional authority in decades, circumventing Congress with an emergency declaration. The move left Senate Republicans sharply divided, and it remains to be seen whether they will act collectively to try to stop it.

    On July 27, 2018, the New York Times published a fact check of the day titled, No, Democrats Dont Want Open Borders.' The article was supposed to serve as a takedown of President Trumps oft-repeated claim that Democratic lawmakers envision a world where America's borders are wide-open to all. On Thursday, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, said he would absolutely support destroying already existing barriers along the U.S. southern border. The former congressman's remarks came as Trump announced hed declare a national emergency to fund building a wall on the border shared with Mexico. Amid this announcement, Rep. Dan...

In November 2018, CNBC reported:Amazon will pay HQ2 employees an average of $150,000On February 16, explaining why she opposed amazon creating 25,000 new jobs in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said:“We need to create dignified jobs in New York City”and“We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world”I wonder how high those amazon salaries would have to be in order for Ocasio-Cortez...

    Bill de Blasio: The Path Amazon Rejected It could have answered the concerns of citizens. Instead it bolted. By Bill de Blasio Mr. de Blasio is mayor of New York City. Feb. 16, 2019 The first word I had that Amazon was about to scrap an agreement to bring 25,000 new jobs to New York City came an hour before it broke in the news on Thursday. The call was brief and there was little explanation for the companys reversal. Just days before, I had counseled a senior Amazon executive about how they could win over some of their critics....

    Patrick Caddell, the political pollster who helped send an obscure peanut farmer named Jimmy Carter to the White House, later became disillusioned with fellow Democrats and finally veered to advise supporters of Donald J. Trump, died on Saturday in Charleston, S.C. He was 68. His death, from complications of a stroke, was confirmed by a colleague, Prof. Kendra Stewart of the College of Charleston. While Mr. Caddell was considered instrumental in Mr. Carters victory, he also shared the blame for limiting him to a single term. He helped persuade the president to deliver a speech that was intended to inspirit...

    Just when you thought it was safe to share your favorite childhood classics with your kids, the New York Times goes and ruins it with an article called "The Gay History of America's Classic Children's Books," by Jesse Green.From Frog and Toad to Goodnight Moon, we are told that our beloved stories are awash in "a secret language of queer compassion." I'm always bemused when people claim that beloved fictional characters are gay. A few months ago it was "Sesame Street's" Ernie and Bert, whose closet door was abruptly slammed shut by their creator, Frank Oz, after he got...

    Meredith Watson, who has also accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, said she was also raped by a Duke basketball player in 1999 that she didn't identify, according to USA Today. Monday, the [New York] Times reported Watson had told friends in the past that she was raped by Corey Maggette and that [Duke university] officials did not pursue the claim despite Watson allegedly reporting the incident to a dean at the university. Maggette, a Los Angeles Clippers analyst for Fox Sports West, did not appear in an originally planned broadcast on Monday. It was announced on...

    If you missed it Saturday, read this to see just how far her advisors went in BSing about the infamous line on the GND fact sheet about “economic security” for those who are “unwilling to work.” It takes stones to go on the other party’s favorite cable news network and insist to their faces that that document was a fabrication rather than something that was posted on Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional website.And it takes elephant-sized stones to amplify that lie to your three million Twitter followers, which is what AOC herself did when she retweeted the clip without comment.WaPo can’t muster...

    Earlier today I wrote about the Washington Posts summary of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez efforts to walk back an embarrassing FAQ which her office used as part of the rollout for the Green New Deal. As bad as the Post story was in some ways, at least it managed to convey some of the embarrassing twists and turns this story has taken over the past four days. The NY Times published a summary today which omits all the troubling details and manages to work in the standard Republicans pounce formula used routinely by the media for any story that embarrasses a Democrat....

    A long forgotten video clip from ABC's "The View" resurfaced on Wednesday that showed co-host Joy Behar trying to explain a Halloween costume from when she was younger. The clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine. Behar was seen discussing a New York Times op-ed about the resurgence of curly hair during the show in 2016. Behar showed her colleagues and the audience a picture of herself with curly hair when she was 29 years old. The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symon, a former co-host, asked, "Joy, are you black?"

    Federal prosecutors are reviewing Mr. Bezos claim that he has been extorted, according to two people briefed on the matter who were not authorized to discuss it publicly. And those prosecutors have planned a meeting with Mr. Bezos representatives, one of those people said. If American Media is found to have broken a law any law it would be in violation of a [previous] deal with federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.
