Border Patrol Agents Refuse To Turn Over Wanted
Felons Because Of California’s Sanctuary Laws
Daily Caller, by Will Racke    Original Article

Border patrol agents are refusing to hand over illegal immigrants with felony warrants to police in California because they can’t be sure local authorities will return the criminal aliens to federal custody, according to a top border security official in San Diego. Rodney Scott, the chief patrol agent in the Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector, said earlier this month that California’s statewide sanctuary law was undermining normal cooperation between his agency and local law enforcement. In a little-reported declaration in support of the Department of Justice’s March 6 lawsuit against California, Scott recalled multiple instances in which a Border Patrol

Obama directive easing school discipline
for minority students fueling classroom chaos

The Trump administration is being accused of racism for targeting an Obama-era directive compelling schools to ease up on discipline for minority students — even though the policy has made life more difficult for kids, including minorities, stuck in increasingly unruly classrooms. Ask Virginia Walden Ford, who runs a church-based after-school snack program in Little Rock. She was recently surprised when a young, fearful black girl turned up before the end of the school day and admitted she had skipped class. Why? She had been involved in a fight the day before with another girl, but the school had refused to suspend

Chief of Staff John Kelly is on the
Hunt For a White House Leaker

Chief of Staff John Kelly is reportedly furious after someone in President Trump´s national security inner circle leaked sensitive information to the press yesterday. The leak, which came Tuesday afternoon, revealed that President Trump was advised not to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his re-election campaign. That information came out in media reports after Trump revealed during a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House that he had congratulated Putin during a phone call. "I had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on the victory -- his electoral victory. The call had to do,

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said at a press conference on Wednesday that the Freedom Caucus will vote against the omnibus spending bill and he hopes the White House will veto the bill. Congressional leadership reportedly will reveal the omnibus spending bill on Wednesday. Conservatives, including the majority of the House Freedom Caucus, will oppose the Omnibus. Congress must pass the omnibus spending bill or a short-term continuing resolution (CR) by Friday to avoid a government shutdown. Jordan suggested that a number of liberal policies will be included in the omnibus, without any substantial border wall funding. Jordan said, “Planned Parenthood,

Let’s get one thing straight: I am not a fan of Facebook. I’m confident that social media is a cancer on our private lives and a source of derangement in our politics. I take it for granted that the tech barons are acquiring the power to tilt elections, and that they’ll be happy to play handmaidens to tyrants soft and hard so long as they can monetize our data. I take a certain mordant pleasure in watching Mark Zuckerberg and his minions scapegoated for the political failures of late-Obama-era liberalism. But the liberal establishment’s fixation on Facebook’s 2016 sins — first

Hillary in India: A Sari Spectacle

One of my liberal friends admitted to me recently that there is a certain virtue to losing gracefully. She was referencing her disappointment with the mean-spirited salvos Hillary Clinton delivered during her recent visit to India, an outburst closer to being disgraceful than full of grace. I’ve been trying to figure Hillary out for almost a half century, ever since I found myself part of an alumnae audience listening to the Wellesley Class of 1969’s graduation spokesperson -- known then as Hillary Rodham -- erupt in condescending anger at the commencement’s guest speaker. Even all those years ago, it was

Cass Sunstein, a former White House adviser in the Obama administration (and husband of Samantha Power), is warning Democrats "not to overreact" to the news about Cambridge Analytica´s supposed spying on Americans via Facebook and Facebook´s effort to clamp down on usage of the data from the people who buy it from them. In a column in Bloomberg, Sunstein writes: The horrendous actions by Cambridge Analytica, a voter profiling company, and Aleksander Kogan, a Russian-American researcher, raise serious questions about privacy, social media, democracy and fraud.

You’ve likely spent a thousand hours or more on Facebook over the past decade. Did you think that the energy-sucking servers holding your photos and hosting the groups dedicated to your high-school class and your neighborhood ran on good wishes? Did you think the company that has allowed you to consume news and opinion at no cost whatsoever to you was doing so out of the goodness of its collective heart? Did you think . . . it was free? Did you really not know that your agreement with Facebook was that Mark Zuckerberg would provide you with hours a day of enjoyment

Hillary Clinton’s Woman-Bashing Is Why
Women Find Feminism So Distasteful
The Federalist, by Sabrina Schaeffer    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/22/2018 4:31:52 AM     Post Reply
Why are so many women reluctant to call themselves feminists? It might be that widespread hostility toward men defines modern feminist movement. Certainly that was the theme of Hillary Clinton’s remarks earlier this month, when she blamed her 2016 presidential loss on husbands pressuring white women to vote for Donald Trump. Clinton has since been widely criticized and apologized. But her comments suggest so much that is wrong with today’s feminist movement: it’s both anti-male and anti-woman at the same time. Clinton said “all of a sudden white women, who were going to vote for me, and frankly standing up to the

HILLSBORO, Ohio- The predictable reaction from some media quarters directed at President Trump over the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, including outlandish comparisons to the Saturday Night Massacre of Watergate days, is reflective of the Big Media echo chamber and the isolation inside the D.C. bubble. Outside Washington, and especially in Trump country, the whole FBI mess is viewed a little differently. For the longest time, James B. Comey, as director of the FBI, portrayed himself as the world’s tallest Boy Scout, and many in the media viewed him that way. Even when his decisions and actions were under

Mark Anthony Conditt, the man linked to the deadly bombings that rocked Austin, Texas, and surrounding areas over the past month, recorded a 25-minute-long "confession" to his crimes, police said late Wednesday. Officers located the recording, in which Conditt, 23, described creating seven devices, including one he blew up during the conflict with police, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference. The recording was made on a phone, which was found in the suspect´s possession following the confrontation. Conditt described the bombs "with a level of specificity," including their differences, Manley said. In the recording, the suspect



What Qualifies as an
Unqualified Lesbian?

Former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn labeled Cynthia Nixon an “unqualified lesbian” after the Sex and the City actress announced a primary challenge to Empire State governor Andrew Cuomo. What makes one an “unqualified lesbian”? Like sanction or cleave, “unqualified” works as its own antonym (or perhaps, to qualify a bit, its own near opposite). Did Quinn mean to call Nixon one unfit for the lesbian label or did she mean to celebrate her as a total, full-blooded lesbian? “Unqualified” strikes ears and eyes as a confusing qualifier. Nixon, on the one hand, drifted into the Sapphic passion at midlife

A couple years ago, salmon passed tuna as the most popular fish in the United States. Our doctors have told us to eat more of it; our fitness and diet regimens have put it in heavy menu rotation. The problem is not all salmon is created equal. More than 90 percent of the fresh salmon eaten in this country comes from giant fish farms, and those farms have problems. Big ones. Here are the facts about America’s favorite fish that you should know but perhaps wish you didn’t. • Large-scale salmon farms in the United States, Canada, Scotland, Norway and Chile have

The House is poised to vote on a bipartisan $1.3 trillion omnibus as soon as Thursday, less than 24 hours after GOP leaders unveiled the massive spending package needed to avert a government shutdown this week.The legislative text of the bill, totaling 2,232 pages, was released Wednesday evening after lawmakers and the White House debated throughout the day over what the final bill would look like. Conservatives complained bitterly about the rushed schedule and lack of transparency, lamenting that GOP leadership gave rank-and-file members little time to read and study what’s in the bill. “This process looks really bad; it

Andrew McCabe may have revealed to his inner circle an inside plan to replace his friend James Comey as FBI director if and when Hillary Clinton was elected president of the United States, according to top officials in the Justice Department. The Inspector General, who is combing McCabe’s communications while he was deputy director of the FBI during the 2016 presidential election, is looking at many parallel revelations from McCabe’s discussions in emails and text messages, DOJ sources said. (Snip) If those discussions about a promotion to FBI director with co-workers and McCabe’s inner circle were anything more than bravado, that

YouTube is entering the gun control debate with a new ban on videos which demo firearms or link to websites selling firearms or firearm accessories. The move to ban firearm demos dovetails with the media platform’s desire to “prohibit videos with instructions on how to assemble firearms.” Ironically, guns built at home have not been part of the mass public attacks that have drawn national attention over the past months and years, but guns acquired at retail via background checks have been. Bloomberg reports that YouTube issued a statement in coordination with new prohibitions, saying, “We routinely make updates and

Former United States President Barack Obama had a great day – but lost his first golf game on New Zealand soil, according to former Prime Minister Sir John Key. After a day of golf with Obama at Kauri Cliffs today, Key reported that the game "came down to the wire". He said the teams were "all square" after 18 holes – "Team NZ won on the second playoff hole." Key said it was a "great match". "[Obama] was relaxed, loved the course and his first glimpse of New Zealand." He said Obama was keen to return. It is believed Key´s

APD Interim Police Chief Brian Manley said in a Wednesday evening press conference that police located a 25-minute phone recording containing what he classified as a "confession to the construction of the explosive devices" from Conditt.

The firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe days before his retirement was a rare case of justice. Both the Justice Department inspector general and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility found that “McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor—including under oath—on multiple occasions.” Even one Democratic politician conceded that McCabe’s firing “may have been justified.” But in the federal bureaucracy, very few people who deserve to be fired actually are. Firing government employees is an onerous process. It requires investigations, counseling sessions, appeals, union arbitrations, and court hearings, all of which can take years. Managers are

Since its inception in 1837, Mt. Holyoke College, set in South Hadley, Massachusetts, has been graduating luminaries — such as poet Emily Dickinson, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and a myriad of other individuals. As the first of the Seven Sisters — a consortium of prestigious East Coast liberal arts colleges for women and the female equivalent to the once all-male Ivy League — Mount Holyoke is now urging its professors to drop the word “women” from their vernacular when referring to their students, according to the school’s website.

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of
