He circled a room of voters, wound his way past the margarita machine and then fired off his vision for Colorado. Single'payer health care. An all'renewable electric grid. State'funded full'day preschool.

It´s voters in his own party who give McCain his most negative ratings '' nearly 7 in 10 view him unfavorably.

The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.

They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right'thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.

No one in their offices contacted me,” said Leandra Feliz, 48 — as she left home Sunday to make funeral arrangements for her 15'year'old son, Lesandro Guzman'Feliz.

Maxine Waters (D'CA) suggested people harassing, and protesting members of the administration of President Donald Trump at stores, restaurants, and gas stations was the new reality for the United States of America. Waters was referencing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia this weekend. Waters said, “I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts.

Just three weeks ago, Representative Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, assured us that everything was peachy with the FBI — no way, no how did the bureau “spy” on the Trump campaign when it deployed an “informant” to pry information from Trump'campaign officials. As Mollie Hemingway pointed out at the time, Gowdy had not seen relevant documents the FBI and Justice Department have been withholding from Congress — in fact, his spokeswoman said he did not even know what documents Pucker up!

Williamson Posted By: danvillebill- Sun, 24 17 2018 07:17:54 GMT The United States has resigned in protest from the UN Human Rights Council, which has a long and ignominious record of protecting the world’s worst abusers of human rights. The proximate cause of the U.S. resignation was the council’s unwillingness to act on the matter of Venezuela, where the socialist government of Nicolas Maduro is engaged in political massacres and the use of Soviet'style hunger'terror against its political enemies. Venezuela remains, incredibly enough, not only protected by the Human Rights Council but an active member of it, an honor shared Vladimir Putin’s Russia and its political assassins, the People’s Republic She Should Have Asked Them To Bake Her a Cake Sun, 24 16 2018 07:16:38 GMT 236e46c8198efa307d5579a729a080918c7926ff Power Line, by John Hinderaker Posted By: Hazymac- Sun, 24 16 2018 07:16:38 GMT There is not much point in trying to keep up with the Liberal Outrages of the Day. They come too fast and furiously; it would be a full'time job, and more. But yesterday’s peak outrage is one you probably already know about: the manager of a Red Hen restaurant kicked Sarah Sanders and her family out of her establishment last night. Sanders tweeted about it: Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me.

Trump said once "somebody comes in" the country, they should be removed with "no Judges or Court Cases" — a move that would violate the long'established legal precedent for immigrants´ rights to due process. (Snip) The US Constitution´s Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to "due process of law" in criminal proceedings. In 1953, the Supreme Court clarified this right extended to non'US citizens.

The IG report; the manipulation (red-lining) of the draft content therein; and the subsequent DOJ/FBI willful blindness toward the remaining content; affords no leniency toward motive. In essence, if we are to honestly call the baby ugly, we are also to admit: there is an ongoing and institutional cover-up taking place.

Late Saturday, the Associated Press reported the Justice Department this week turned over some of the documents related to the Russia investigation. But Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican, called the report was “not accurate” and said the department provided merely a fraction of what lawmakers subpoenaed. “New reports of DOJ/FBI compliance with document requests are NOT accurate.

Gallop Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sun, 24 08 2018 04:08:10 GMT Melbourne, FL — Peter Unger traveled the world, first in the Navy at the tail end of the Korean War and then as a free spirit searching the ancient paths of India for life’s sacred meaning. Toward the end of his life Unger, sporting a flowing white beard and well-off financially thanks to his handcrafted jewelry business, sought sanctuary in the idea of living simply. But in a twist of fate, the 85-year-old who shunned worldly cares was found dead May 7, alone in a nondescript white Ford van that sat parked undisturbed for days at a Walmart, a retail giant seen by many as America’s temple of commerce and materialism.

A fact sheet on "zero-tolerance prosecution and family reunification" released Saturday night by the Department of Homeland Security also says a parent must request that their child be deported with them. In the past, the agency says, many parents have elected to be deported without their children. That may be a reflection of violence or persecution they face in their home countries.

They support Democrats in droves, and Democrats support race-based affirmative action. Last week, a lawsuit revealed just how discriminatory that kind of decision-making can be. At Harvard, racial balancing — in the guise of a personality score for applicants — appears to be systematically reducing the admission of Asian American students to the university. The Harvard scandal contains a lot of takeaways, but here’s the one I hope sticks with my fellow Asian Americans: It’s time for us to end our blind loyalty to the Democratic Party and support instead politicians who will Liberals Are Pushing The Country To The Edge Sun, 24 39 2018 03:39:50 GMT 8608cb89e6a62abb0d404bef69c20cc315570b4a Townhall, by Derek Hunter Posted By: garnet- Sun, 24 39 2018 03:39:50 GMT In a time of crazy, it’s been a Hell of a week. I literally wrote the book on the liberal outrage culture and this week disturbed even me. There are some things you simply can’t undo, some ledges you can’t pull back from. We’re teetering on one now. How can we, as a nation, get back to civility or even just get along again?

Here´s the story. A born-again Christian named Jack Phillips ran a bakery. Aware of Phillips´ heartfelt religious beliefs, a gay couple demanded that he violate those beliefs by designing and creating an artistic cake to celebrate their marriage. This was even before Colorado had legalized gay marriage. Phillips politely told the couple that they were welcome in his bakery and that he would be happy to sell them anything off-the-shelf. But he could not violate his faith.

Barbara Lee, California Democrat, accused the Trump administration Sunday of “criminalizing” illegal immigrants. Ms. Lee, who joined a congressional delegation that visited intake and detention facilities Saturday near the border in Texas, described the conditions as “tragic.” “I mean, these people are being criminalized,” said Ms. Lee on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We went into the processing center, where there are cages, certainly.

Cannon Posted By: DynomiteThings- Sun, 24 14 2018 03:14:53 GMT The latest fad du jour in the media is to brand President Trump a liar for trying to blame Democrats for the unholy mess along the U.S.-Mexico border. In supposedly straight news stories, the Washington Post, NPR and others simply termed Trump’s claims “false.” It’s certainly the case that Trump’s assertions and tweets were self-serving and incomplete, not to mention ungrammatical. There was a brazen quality to them, too, given that his Justice Department precipitated the recent crisis with its “zero tolerance” policy for Central Americans seeking refugee status in the U.S. But the president’s broader point has merit: Latino non-profit faces questions over big money, involvement in immigrant kids´ housing Sun, 24 12 2018 02:12:13 GMT 2b3f9feffa831dc3e7be0783df16a57fa4d5d120 Fox News, by Elizabeth Llorente Posted By: Ribicon- Sun, 24 12 2018 02:12:13 GMT As debate continues over the Trump administration´s "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, questions are being asked about a non-profit group that has collected huge amounts of government money to house and care for thousands of immigrant children being held in the system. Texas-based Southwest Key Programs has taken in roughly $1 billion in federal contracts since the Obama administration, and is expected to receive about $500 million this year to house and provide services for immigrant children, according to reports.
