Head of Border Patrol Union: ´Energy´
Among Agents Is Best I´ve Ever Seen

Morale among U.S. Border Patrol agents is at an all-time high, the president of the National Border Patrol Council said today. Brandon Judd, the union´s president, said agents felt hamstrung for years under the Obama administration´s catch-and-release policies at the border. "Whether you´re in the left, right or middle, you have to say this president has done exactly what he´s promised to do," said Judd, pointing out the huge drop in apprehensions at the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said this month that apprehensions have fallen to a six-year low, likely due to President Trump´s aggressive enforcement and

This is true. Border patrol agents have been treated to a stream of politicians all running to border to pontificate and schmooze the agents. Trump was the most impressive candidate when he visited. They feel he is keeping every promise now that he is President. This is a very big deal.

Lois Lerner, former IRS senior executive
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

The Trump Justice Department has once again cleared former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner of criminal liability stemming from the tea party targeting. In a letter to top Republicans, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said they re-reviewed the case and concluded there isn’t enough evidence to charge Ms. Lerner, who was at the center of the targeting. Mr. Boyd said the new review included lawyers who only recently joined the department and weren’t part of the Obama administration’s earlier decision. “After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be

Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina announced Friday she will not run for U.S. Senate in Virginia next year. “I’ve decided that I can be of more valuable outside the system than a single voice among 100 inside the system,” Ms. Fiorina said on “The John Fredericks Show.” “So I’m going to continue the work I’ve been doing for many years enlisting up leaders and problems solvers all across the country and have made the decision to seek the U.S. Senate seat here in the Commonwealth.” Ms. Fiorina’s announcement was coupled with the news that former Gov.

Professors from Harvard University and other Boston-area colleges were arrested Thursday while protesting against President Trump’s plan to rescind an Obama-era program shielding young illegal immigrants from deportation. Thirty-one people, including professors from Harvard, Babson, and Boston College, were arrested after forming a human chain and blocking traffic along Massachusetts Avenue, The Harvard Crimson reported. Cambridge Police Department spokesman Jeremy Warnick said the protesters refused police orders to move. “They were given multiple opportunities to continue their free speech,

The Environmental Protection Agency’s gravy train just ain’t what she used to be. Green groups are awestruck, agog and maybe even aghast at the news that the Trump administration has put a political operative to work vetting applications for EPA grants worth hundreds of millions of dollars. John Konkus, who was Donald Trump’s campaign chairman in Leon County, Florida, last year, now, according to The Washington Post, “reviews every award [the EPA] gives out, along with every grant solicitation before it goes out.” Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA

(Video) - Hillary Clinton said Thursday that she was devastated and drained after her loss to Donald Trump in 2016, but regained her strength by relying on a mix of prayer, yoga and “my fair share of Chardonnay.” Clinton, speaking at an event focused on her faith at New York’s Riverside Church, said she did not think she was going to lose heading into Election Day and was entirely thrown by the defeat. To get through it, Clinton said, she turned inward, relying on her “internal resources” and the support of her family and friends. (Snip) And, in a light moment, Clinton added, “Yes, I had my fair share of Chardonnay.”

Solar Storms May Deter Kim From
Launching Missile on Anniversary

North Korea could decide to delay its next ballistic missile launch because a current outbreak of severe geomagnetic storms can pose a risk to electronic equipment. While missiles are generally heavily shielded against radiation, Kim Jong Un may decide not to risk firing one during the solar flares in case they lose data or ancillary equipment, said Lance Gatling, an aerospace consultant with Nexial Research in Tokyo. He added that the U.S. and Japan might be hoping for a launch so they can test detection and tracking equipment in a storm environment. South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Thursday the next launch

Mayor Bill de Blasio rounds the corner of a Gracie Mansion porch wearing a broad smile. (Snip) What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of

Bipartisan Path, at Least for Now

Washington - By the time President Trump woke up on Thursday morning, he was feeling upbeat. And as he watched television news reports about his fiscal agreement with Democrats, he felt like telling someone. He picked up the phone and called the two Democratic congressional leaders, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Representative Nancy Pelosi of California. “The press has been incredible,” he gushed to Ms. Pelosi, according to someone briefed on their call. He was equally effusive with Mr. Schumer, boasting that even Fox News was positive. A few hours later, Mr. Trump went on TV

Magnitude-8.1 Earthquake
Hits Off Mexico’s Southern Coast
NBC News, by Richie Duchon, Kurt Chirbas    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2017 5:02:32     Post Reply
The most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years struck off the country´s southern coast early Friday, killing at least five people and prompting warnings it could trigger tsunami waves up to 10 feet high. The quake that struck just before 1 a.m. ET was more powerful than the 1985 tremor that killed more than 5,000 people in Mexico City, according to President Mexican Enrique Peña Nieto. However, with an epicenter 40 miles off the coast and some 460 miles from the capital itself, the damage appeared to be far more limited. At least five people were killed by the quake, according to authorities.

As Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida this weekend, a new report reveals that nearly half of Florida homes in hazard zones do not have flood insurance, reports the The Associated Press. The number of federal flood insurance policies in Florida has fallen by 15 percent over the course of five years, according to Federal Emergency Management Agency data. Florida has roughly 2.5 million homes in hazard zones. However, Florida’s overall flood insurance rate for hazard-zone homes is just 41 percent. Roy Wright, who runs the National Flood Insurance Program, told AP that only half the 10 million Florida properties that need flood

Mexico on Thursday ordered North Korea’s ambassador to leave the country in 72 hours in response to the Asian nation’s latest nuclear tests. Ambassador Kim Hyong Gil was declared persona non grata and will have to vacate the embassy in Mexico City, the Foreign Ministry said in an e-mailed statement. Mexico said it absolutely rejects North Korea’s nuclear activity, calling it a serious risk for peace and international security and a growing threat to the region, including its "fundamental allies" of Japan and South Korea. The expulsion comes as U.S President Donald Trump’s administration presses countries to cut diplomatic

Inmates at the U.S. maximum security jail and naval base at Guantanamo Bay are not being evacuated as Hurricane Irma barrels towards the Caribbean island of Cuba, defense officials have told Newsweek. They say that the terrorist suspects—which incude the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed—will ride out the Category 5 storm in their cells along with 5,000 residents of the controversial prison and military base. “We have no indications that any detainees at Guantanamo Bay will need to be evacuated from the installation due to Hurricane Irma,” Major Ben Sakrisson, a Pentagon spokesman,

She still doesn’t get it. In her forthcoming memoir ‘What Happened” (out Tuesday), Hillary Clinton takes perfunctory responsibility for losing the election before spending nearly 500 pages blaming: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, “rash FBI director” James Comey, Obama, the Russians, sexism, and, finally, the American people for not liking her enough. Sanders, she writes, had the gall to run against her even though he’s not a Democrat. “That’s not a smear, that’s what he says,” she writes. “He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.” Clinton bemoans the sexism

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s tête-à-tête on Tuesday — after a summer of sniping between the two — lifted Republican hopes that the GOP was finally back in sync ahead of a brutal fall of fiscal deadlines.Not 24 hours later, the president cut a deal with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase opposed by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just Wednesday morning, in fact, Ryan had scoffed at the Democratic offer that Trump accepted minutes later. In the aftermath, Republicans seethed privately and distanced themselves publicly from the deal.

In an interview with Channel 4, a British public service television network, American actress Jennifer Lawrence blamed the recent hurricanes on Donald Trump’s voters, because they don´t believe in man-made climate change. During the lengthy interview on her new movie Mother!, the conversation turned political about halfway through. After discussing the alleged pay gap between men and women, the interviewer asked Lawrence about climate change and the political climate in America. “I mean when the director was asked about the film, why it was so dark, he said, ‘It’s a mad time to be alive.’ And there is certainly an

Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich expressed distaste in President Trump’s plan to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and invited all immigrants to come live in his state. Kasich was in a particularly fiery mood on CBS This Morning Wednesday, and when asked if he supports Trump’s decision, he laughed incredulously: “No! Can you imagine that we’re taking kids who came here, you know, they had nothing to do with the fact that they were brought here? They’ve become a very significant part of our society… and now we put them in jeopardy.” “We want them in

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has taken a ton of heat over the past few days for essentially claiming that the warnings over Hurricane Irma — a massive Category 5 storm heading right for Florida — were related to a broader “deep state” conspiracy to promote climate change, force people to buy bottled water and increase the news media’s ratings. During his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh remained defiant, claiming that media accusations that he was placing people in danger by spreading conspiracy theories were completely untrue. And yet, at the same time, he doubled down on what he previously had said,

(Video) - In her new memoir of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton offers this analysis on why she lost: "I think it´s fair to say that I didn´t realize how quickly the ground was shifting under all our feet... I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans´ anger and resentment." Which is true. She ran a campaign larded with policy papers, with serious thoughts about serious things, with poll-tested stump speech lines designed to give some to everyone but all to no one.

WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about so-called members of “antifascist” (Antifa) groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if Antifa should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was

Vanity Fair, which previously featured Melania Trump on one of its covers, snubbed the First Lady of the United States in its 2017 best-dressed list – while featuring numerous liberals, including both Obamas. The list, comprised of over 40 people, is broken into eight-sections: Women, Men, Hollywood, Originals, Couples, Professionals, Special Citation, and Hall Of Fame. Missing from the list was First Lady Melania Trump, which is odd to say the least, given that Vanity Fair featured her on the cover of the Mexican edition of the magazine in January.

Hillary Clinton is still “at a loss” about her loss. In leaked excerpts from her upcoming election memoir “What Happened,” the defeated Democratic candidate admits to mistakes, regrets and “dumb” moves from her presidential bid — but says she still does not understand why so many Americans oppose her. “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I´m really asking. I´m at a loss,” she asks in the book. “I think it´s partly because I´m a woman.” (Snip) “I go back over my own shortcomings and the mistakes we made.
