    The Hill ^ | 10/22/18 | Emily Birnbaum
    The New York Times's opinion department is partnering with comedian Niecy Nash on a new satirical hotline for white people to call when they can't "cope with black people living life near them." The hotline mocks the rash of real-world incidents over the past year in which white people have called the police on black people who are not doing anything illegal. Viral videos and stories have featured white callers notifying authorities as nearby African-Americans participate in family barbecues, nap in a college dorm lounge, move into their new homes and other innocuous activities. Between cellphone cameras and social media,...

    Thousands of migrants from various countries in Central America forged on over the weekend, with numbers growing to more than 7,000 despite threats from President Donald Trump that he’d dispatch the military should they reach the U.S. border. The fleet is composed mainly of individuals seeking jobs that aren’t available in their home countries or trying to find safety from drug and gang violence, but for a number of them, this wasn’t their first time trying to reach the U.S.

    News Intensifying Hurricane Willa Headed Directly Toward 10,000 Migrant Caravan Path Update 10/22: Hurricane Willa, as reported by the National Hurricane Center, is now a Category 5 hurricane.It appears that the migrant caravan, which has been reported to upward of 10,000 strong, might run into some extra trouble on their march to seek American asylum. A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross. There’s also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still...

    New estimates cited by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, say the caravan now has 14,000 people, many of them already in Mexico while others still wait One woman quoted by BBC, identified as Maria, walking with her husband and two children, said they are looking for work. That would put them in the category of illegal migrants, not asylum-seekers. Yet many appear confident they can take advantage of lax U.S. laws to gain a foothold in the shadows.

    Breitbart ^ | 22 October 2018 | John Nolte
    Incumbent Rep. John Faso (R-NY-19) is up by a single point over Democrat challenger Antonio Delgado, according to polling. In a crucial House race that will help determine which party controls the House of Representatives for at least the next two years, Faso was down three points to Delgado back in early September, 45 to 48 percent. A Siena poll now shows Faso up one, 44 to 43 percent. This, however, is well within the poll’s 4.6 percent margin of error. In his district, Faso’s approval rating is upside down by 6 points, 40 to 46 percent. Delgado is only...

    MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Essex County Freeholders called for the ouster of the New Jersey Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson but have not budged on ending its controversial contract with the agency. At its Wednesday meeting in Maplewood, the freeholders board passed a resolution supporting other lawmakers who have called for Emilio Karim Dabul to be terminated from his position as ICE spokesperson. Dabul has publicly defended people who the Southern Poverty Law Center have labeled anti-Muslim. Dabul referred questions to ICE headquarters in Washington D.C. A spokesperson from headquarters responded with a brief statement, which included a link...

    President Trump announced Monday morning he is starting the process to cut or reduce aid to Central American countries that haven't stopped a caravan of illegal aliens. Over the past few days, the caravan has grown from 4,000 people to 7,000. Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018 Over the weekend, President Trump again threatened to seal...

    After months of promising a November “blue wave,” Democrats’ chances of taking back Congress are shrinking by the day.Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is on track to lose her seat in North Dakota by double-digits. A recent New York Times/Siena poll has Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn ahead by more than 14 points. Sen. Ted Cruz is now consistently polling with at least a 7-point advantage.All told, Real Clear Politics is projecting Republicans will hold on to at least 50 seats in the Senate, and several of the remaining “toss-up” races are in states that normally lean Republican, including Arizona, Indiana, and Missouri. Republicans are...

    ELMA, N.Y. - The Jamison Volunteer Fire Hall is not caving to public criticism following the announcement that former White House advisor and former executive chairman at Breitbart News Steve Bannon will hold a "Get out the Vote" rally on Wednesday. Michael Caputo, who helped organize the rally, said that the previous event at the Roycroft Inn was canceled after threats of property violence and boycott. Channel 7 reported that the inn worried about brand damage as a result of hosting the Bannon rally. Our phone call to Roycroft has yet to be returned. The fire hall said that criticisms...

    The New York Police Department is removing nearly 3,000 body cameras from use after one of the devices worn by a Staten Island officer exploded into flames, police officials said on Sunday. The recall of the Vievu-brand LE-5 cameras could delay the department’s plan to outfit all 23,000 patrol officers with body cameras by December, and adds another twist to the complicated history surrounding the mechanisms... The police said other camera models, including the LE-4, are not affected by the order.

    Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday over 700 illegal aliens were caught, with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley. 16,000 “family units” were reported caught...

    Despite media claims to the contrary, election Mexican officials previously promised to allow the invasion of Central American migrants. There is a history here. Heavily financed horde of Central American migrants has overwhelmed token resistance from Mexican military and advanced north toward Southern U.S. border.  As described by Associated Press today: “growing army of migrants resumes march toward US.”  This is a well financed, well organized, left-wing political operation strategically timed to reach the U.S. border and coincide with the 2018 mid-term election.Estimates as to the number of economic migrants varies between 7,000 to 10,000 and the numbers are growing...

    Is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard preparing for a run in the 2020 Democrat primary for president? The Hawaiian representative is the first Hindu to serve in Congress and an Iraqi war veteran. She’s also a Bernie Bro anti-war progressive who has even managed to get sideways with Hawaii’s teacher union. That takes some doing for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of a teacher’s union. She was one of just three representatives and the only Democrat who refused to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s genocidal chemical attack on his own people. After the attack, Gabbard traveled to Syria to meet...

    From the occasionally used cortex department: Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday at a campaign event that the United States’ blueprint for beating global warming needs to be the same as the blueprint the U.S. used for defeating Nazi Germany in the 1940s. “So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.” “None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential...

    Consider how she behaved during a book signing Friday in Park Avenue, Manhattan, for “This Stops Now,” a book by Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr. Clinton wrote the forward for it. As the event moderator introduced her, an audience member yelled, “The real president!” . . She nodded her head in profuse agreement. While it’s easy to claim “she was just nodding along for the fun of it,” her past behavior suggests she’s obsessed with becoming president. Not only that, but she genuinely believes she should be president right now.
