Florida Sen. Bill Nelson seeks

Never let a crisis go to waste, as Chicago muscle Democrat Rahm Emanuel once put it. And well, Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida is right there onboard with a scheme to funnel hurricane relief through a radical leftist pass-through organization. One can only ask why. According to a report in the Washington Free Beacon: Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) on Wednesday sent out an email encouraging people to donate money for hurricane disaster relief with a list of nonprofit groups that provide aid, but he did not disclose

Not sure he actually cares, or does Gillum, as the Panhandle is generally reliably Republican territory.

This event could shape the upcoming election for Senator and Governor in Florida.

FTA: ...Nelson is no moderate as he portrays himself. He´s in deep with the craziest of the radical Democrats, and can be expected to do their bidding faithfully.

Nelson has been a terrible senator with a miserable voting record and is ripe for plucking. It makes perfect sense that he´d seek to launder disaster relief through several left fringe organizations. The man is not honest. As Tarzan would say, "Ungawa."

Sleazeball. Reminds me of cadaverous Blumenthal.

Besides the bogus laundering, how about the credit card companies forgoing their fees as well?

There are better charities, read the fine print to see that your donation goes to those who need it.

Bill Nelson has always worked for me, unlike little Marco, who only takes care of South FL and Cuba. But, the ads running for the last few days are paid for by the Black Pac. Not acceptable.

President Donald Trump railed against the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and federal Judge Jon Tigar, who on Monday blocked the administration´s plan to restrict asylum claims at the southern border as the migrant caravan begins to collect in Tijuana, Baja California Norte. As Fox News reported: A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday barred the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally, likely prompting a legal challenge from the White House. Trump issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed

Conditions worsen at shelter
as more migrants approach Tijuana

TIJUANA, Mexico — Migrants stranded in Tijuana are complaining about cramped living spaces, exposure to the cold at night, limited access to food and safety concerns. The makeshift shelter they´ve been living in for almost a week is nearing capacity, and more migrants are on the way to this border community. More than 2,500 migrants, hailing mostly from Honduras and to a lesser extent from other Central American countries and Mexico, are staying at Unidad Deportiva Benito Juárez, a sports complex in Tijuana´s north end. Another 3,400 are in nearby Mexicali, about 90 miles away, according to the state officials.

WASHINGTON — The Department of Homeland Security is gathering intelligence from paid undercover informants inside the migrant caravan that is now reaching the California-Mexico border as well as monitoring the text messages of migrants, according to two DHS officials. The 4,000 migrants, mainly from Honduras, have used WhatsApp text message groups as a way to organize and communicate along their journey to the California border, and DHS personnel have joined those groups to gather that information. The intelligence gathering techniques are combined with reports from DHS personnel working in Mexico

For awhile there, an orderly border entry process was taking place at Tijuana, with thousands of applicants for asylum taking a number and waiting their turn to make their claims. It made more sense to try to immigrate legally than illegally, given that President Trump issued a national security order saying that asylum claims would only be processed at a U.S. port of entry. Which was why the Tijuana residents protested the other day - they didn´t want these people hanging around, given the large numbers of criminals in their ranks, 500 at last count,

More than 500 criminals are traveling with the migrant caravan that’s massed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing, homeland security officials said Monday afternoon. The revelation was made during a conference call with reporters, with officials asserting that "most of the caravan members are not women and children". They claimed the group is mostly made up of single adult or teen males and that the women and children have been pushed to the front of the line in a bid to garner sympathetic media coverage. “All legal options are on the table and we have been

Huge protests engulfed Tijuana over the weekend over the migrant caravan. They were loud, noisy, politically incorrect, and based on the photos that ran in the Mexican press, very large, at least a thousand participants. Tijuana, unlike a lot of the rest of Mexico, has a civil society culture, featuring everything from charity groups, to art museum lovers, to beach cleanup crews, to neighborhood watch groups, and well, the latter got busy and organized those protests. Here´s a screengrab showing the size of the activity from Reforma, a top Mexican news organization. It´s subscription-only, but

TIJUANA, Mexico — Many Central American migrants camped in Tijuana after crossing Mexico in a caravan said Monday that a protest over the weekend by residents demanding they leave frightened them and left them even more anxious while they try to get into the United States. The angry protests have been fed by concerns raised by President Donald Trump’s month-long warnings that criminals and gang members are in the group and even terrorists, though there is no evidence of that. About 500 people demonstrated in an affluent section of Tijuana on Sunday against the caravan.

With zero fear of being called racists - even in Mexico, because the light-and-bright elites live in Mexico City - Tijuana´s neighborhood groups staged some amazingly politically incorrect protests as a means of getting their message out. To an American observer, the sorts of things being said are positively jaw-droppingly raw. Here´s the big sign at the Cuauhtemoc statue at a key roundabout that sort of serves as Tijuana´s town square, taken as a screengrab from major Mexican media outlet Reforma:

Nobody ever called the master of the Art of the Deal not up on getting what he wants by throwing his opponents on their backfoot. And now I think we see it. Trump is out there, plain as day, advising Democrats to go on, Beav, pick San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi as their next House Speaker. Do it. It´s actually pretty funny. According to the New York Post: “I can get Nancy Pelosi as many votes as she wants in order for her to be Speaker of the House,” Trump tweeted.

TIJUANA, Mexico — Hundreds of Tijuana residents, opposed to what they described as the "chaos" of the Central American migrant caravan, gathered at a prominent roundabout in Tijuana Sunday morning, before marching to a large, makeshift shelter, which now holds about 2,400 migrants. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” and “yes to migrants, no to invaders!” They sang the national anthem and waved Mexican flags and banners and signs, with messages urging the migrants to go home and urging the government to take action. Some protesters said Mexico doesn’t have the resources to care for its own people,

Was the man who who´s widely believed to be Washington´s new cardinal, Joseph Tobin of the Newark diocese, bunking with a houseboy? It looks like it, given the reporting of the indefatigable George Neumayr. I wanted to ask Tobin about a story I broke in October: that an Italian actor, Francesco Castiglione, was living in his rectory, which had caused murmuring among concerned Catholics in his archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey. Some of those concerned Catholics had called me, suspecting that Castiglione was the real recipient of Tobin’s infamous accidental tweet from last

Instead she says she feels caught in a beautiful trap — a place surrounded by mountains and sweeping beaches — but where she cannot legally work and her daughter cannot go to school.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed this weekend that she has no idea what the three branches of the U.S. government are during a conference call with prospective far-left political candidates. "If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House," Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday while on a call with Justice Democrats.

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump. Lemon began by asking liberal contributor Kirsten Powers “why white women support Donald Trump in spite of or perhaps because of his policies and his tone,” during Friday’s “CNN Tonight.” “People will say

Barack Obama trashed President Trump on Monday night while speaking about ways to mobilize Americans to bring about social change at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. Arrogant Obama accused President Trump of ignoring the climate change hoax because he’s a racist with mommy issues. “The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism…mommy issues.” The audience of drones laughed after Obama trashed Trump. Obama stuttered as he continued to talk about himself and even bragged about being called “Spock.” “I mean, we — we are

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public.

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
