Major cities across the U.S. on Thursday were bracing for sweeping deportation raids this weekend, the second time in less than a month that Trump administration insiders have signaled roundups were imminent. The raids were intended as a massive show of force against undocumented immigrants by President Donald Trump, who last month tipped his hand when he vowed on Twitter that "millions" would be deported. While administration officials have called that estimate an exaggeration, they confirmed there are 2,000 people in as many as 10 cities who have been identified as a top priority for deportation -- many of them families. Those raids were called off

What BS. The deportations are for those people who have judge issued papers for deportation. The stupid drive-by media just loves to protect their illegals, hates the rule of law, and absolutely hates our country. A pox on them and all those illegals too.

Since when is it considered a threat to enforce the law? The democrat party & the media are unreal. My question is why did they stop deporting illegals once the judge ordered them deported? Someone misguided & may still be misguiding President Trump.

What are they bracing for? How do 2000 "sweeping" deportations put ten cities on alert? Are they going to ask the President to declare emergencies in their cities and ask for FEMA funds? What the heck!

They shouldn't have telegraphed their intentions...you're going to round them up and haul them off, don't give any warning...and backing up, if a judge signs off on a deportation order, immediately snatch them up and send them off...no more screwing around with them.

I was clicking around that various channels last night and saw the local (Chicago) ABC and NBC reports on the potential ICE raids. Both stations presented the story as if the illegals were victims and had activists providing tips on how to stay safe this weekend. The new mayor, aldermen and activists were boldly proclaiming that the police will not help the Federal officials and the illegals (not their word) will be protected. Sickening.

The Biden Plan for Appeasement 3 replies
Posted by MissMolly 7/14/2019 5:46:40 AM Post Reply
Vice President Biden’s promise to resume the Obama administration’s appeasement of the theocratic dictators of Iran is a shocking marker. It is the headline news in the foreign policy platform Mr. Biden just outlined in a speech at New York University. It comes from the politician said to be the most centrist figure in the Democratic scrum. So it will reinforce President Trump’s credibility in the coming campaign. On the one hand, this isn’t surprising. Mr. Biden himself has always been a weak figure in the Middle East. When he was on the Foreign Relations Committee, he was so condescending to Menachem Begin that the visiting Israeli premier publicly

Rep. Devin Nunes said Republicans plan to grill former special counsel Robert Mueller about his top prosecutor when he testifies in an open setting later this month. Andrew Weissmann, who was known as Mueller's "pitbull," will be the subject of multiple lines of inquiry, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee told Fox News' Bill Hemmer on an episode of the "Hemmer Time" podcast. In a preview of what he and his GOP colleagues will ask on July 24, Nunes said Mueller will be pressed on why the FBI withheld from his panel that Weissmann briefed Associated Press reporters in 2017 on "something to do with the Trump-Russia investigation"

A lex Acosta did a bad job on the Jeffrey Epstein case. This column was nearly finished when news broke Friday that he would resign as labor secretary. I was going to argue that his lapses did not justify joining the nakedly political mau-mauing by Democrats who have no interest in exploring the behavior of Democrats who are neck-deep in a monstrous pedophile’s activities. My friend Jennifer Braceras has ably addressed that point in a Washington Examiner column. I was also going to add that I’d shed no tears if President Trump forced Acosta out — easy for me to say, since I think (a) he should never

Remember Tom Hanks’ famous line from “A League of Their Own”? “There’s no crying in baseball.” Well, if President Trump had coined a motto back in 2016, it probably would have been, “There’s no apologizing in politics.” No matter how much outrage Trump sparked, he never said he was sorry. You could argue that there were times when an apology was warranted. (The McCain War Hero debacle in 2015 comes to mind). But there is no arguing that Trump’s strategy was a bold one. And as the 2020 election nears, he is still the only individual steering clear of the words, “I’m sorry.”
The Real Danger of Categorical Politics 6 replies

Conservatives talk a lot about how we don’t like identity politics. But it’s not always clear what people mean by it. Academics and intellectuals tend to mean one thing, while politicians and activists often have something slightly different in mind. Democratic politicians who engage in identity politics often mean something like “ethnic politics,” by which members of a community organize in their collective interest. Conservatives sometimes use “identity politics” to describe simple ethnic politics, but only when it’s ethnic politics they don’t like. What they leave out is that this form of political engagement is as old as the country itself, because it’s as old as politics itself.

‘We’re holding a gun to our own heads,’ said Sen. John Cornyn in June. He was talking about President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs in order to force Mexico to crack down on illegal immigration into the Unites States. Many congressmen agreed, fearing, as establishment figures are prone to do, that Trump was risking the whole economy for some nebulous border demand. A month later, it seems Trump’s tariff gambit has worked. After Mexican officials agreed to crack down on illegal immigration to avoid US-imposed tariffs, the Department of Homeland Security reports that border apprehensions dropped from 144,278 in May to 104,344 in June — a 28 percent decrease.
The only thing making Biden look

Despite a lackluster debate performance, former Vice President Joe Biden is still holding on to his lead in the race for the Democratic nomination in large part because Democratic voters see him as the most electable candidate. A Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that a 45% plurality of voters believe Biden has the best chance of beating President Trump. No other candidate comes even close. But what if those voters are wrong? To win back the presidency, Democrats must retake states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio, where once-reliable working-class Democrats opted for Trump in 2016.

At the moment, Robert Mueller is still scheduled to make his post-special counsel appearance next Wednesday at the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. That date may slip, or perhaps not happen at all, thanks to a revolt among Judiciary’s rank and file. With a two-hour limit and 41 committee members, junior Democrats fear not getting an opportunity for some serious media coverage: Junior lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee could get shut out of next week’s highly anticipated hearing with special counsel Robert Mueller — and they’re not happy about it.

At least a dozen new victims have come forward to claim they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein even as the multimillionaire money manager tries to convince a federal judge to allow him to await a sex trafficking trial from the comfort of the same $77 million Manhattan mansion where he’s accused of luring teenage girls into unwanted sex acts. Following Epstein’s arrest Saturday in New Jersey, four women have reached out to New York lawyer David Boies, and at least 10 other women have approached other lawyers who have represented dozens of Epstein’s alleged victims in the past. Jack Scarola, a Palm Beach attorney, said at least five women,

Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Amy McGrath raised more than $2.5 million in the first 24 hours of her campaign against Mitch McConnell. It is reportedly the most money ever raised in the first 24 hours of a Senate campaign. The people who donated may as well have lit their money on fire. Unless Mitch McConnell is found to have dated teenagers while in his thirties, McGrath is losing, probably in a landslide. McGrath is trying to defeat an incumbent senator in a presidential election year in a state that will almost certainly vote for the president of the incumbent’s party, which is a historical longshot.

President Donald Trump should "admit that climate change is real" and start figuring out ways to confront it. That wasn't advice from prominent congressional Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez but rather from one of the president's staunchest allies in Congress: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. "I'm tired of playing defense on the environment," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday as he and other GOP lawmakers announced the formation of the Roosevelt Conservation Caucus, which will "embrace and promote constructive efforts to resolve conservation and environmental problems." In response to a question about the president's environmental record, Graham said Trump should agree

President Trump has a challenge for investigative journalists everywhere: Find out who visited convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s island. The billionaire whose plane was called “Lolita Express” by pundits often brought the rich and powerful to his private island. The president on Friday noted that reporters now focused on outgoing Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s prosecution of Mr. Epstein should dig into who visited what became known among locals as “Orgy Island.” “Other people, they went all over with him,” Mr. Trump said from the White House lawn. “They went to his island and all over the place.
