´Show of force´: 100 vehicles line one

on other side
Washington Examiner, by Anna Giaritelli    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/10/2019 11:01:53 PM     Post Reply
EAGLE PASS, TEXAS — The Trump administration has flooded the Texas border town that sits just over the river from the Mexican city where 1,800 caravan migrants arrived earlier this week with hundreds of law enforcement personnel. More than 100 U.S. police vehicles lined a one-mile stretch of the Rio Grande River in Eagle Pass, Texas, Saturday afternoon. Sixty sat together in one section of the river on a local golf course. The massive "show of force” — as Border Patrol is calling it — is meant to deter Central Americans from illegally entering the country, as large groups attempted

Alicia Keys may have been hosting the Grammy awards on Sunday night, but it was Michelle Obama who brought the house down: entering from offstage arm in arm with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Jennifer Lopez, the former first lady joined her compatriots in recounting exactly why music was so important. (Tweet/Video) "From the Motown records I wore out on the south side to the who run the world songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story," Obama said, as the crowd erupted in a standing ovation, "and I know that´s true

Ron Miller, former Disney CEO and son-in-law of Walt Disney, died Saturday in Napa, Calif. at the age of 85. Miller served as president and later CEO of Disney from 1978 to 1984, during a rocky period for the company. He was president of the board of directors of the Walt Disney Family Museum and owner of Napa’s Silverado Vineyards. “Everyone at The Walt Disney Company is deeply saddened by the passing of Ron Miller. His life and legacy are inextricably linked with our Company and the Disney family because he was such a vital part of both,

DES MOINES, Iowa — Cory Booker´s voice is shot. Standing on stage before hundreds of potential voters in the state that boasts the pivotal first-in-the-nation caucus, Booker, in a raspy voice that normally booms, is adamant his message of love, hope and unity can win him the Democratic nomination and, ultimately, the presidency. "They´re going to say, ´Oh my gosh, more candidates talking about love and hope; oh my God, how are you going to beat Donald Trump with that?´” the New Jersey senator, 49, told the packed venue at his last event in the state following a two-day blitz

Deputy City Atty. Elizabeth Greenwood was at work in City Hall East last fall when her shin began to hurt. “I looked down and there were a couple of insect bites,” Greenwood recalled. She thought little of it at the time, she said, but within weeks she was gravely ill with what doctors would ultimately diagnose as the flea-borne illness typhus.(Snip)Greenwood’s experience — and her willingness to speak publicly about it — was a driving factor in this week’s admission by city officials that Los Angeles’ iconic seat of government is infested with vermin.

Conservative artist Joy Villa has done it again. Her third year in a row making a political statement at the Grammy Awards, the singer showed up to this year´s red carpet in Los Angeles on Sunday wearing a dress tailored to look like President´s Trump planned border wall. The gown featured a design with white bricks and black mortar. Resting on Villa´s shoulders was a ring of barbed wire, complementing a steal crown on her head. On her back in red letters read the message: "Build the wall." Villa also carried a red "Make America Great Again" purse. She told

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., is expected to launch her 2020 presidential campaign on Sunday, but is facing an early crisis over a wave of accusations that she has mistreated staff -- with her conduct reportedly getting so bad that then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid told her to change her behavior. (Snip)But that announcement was overshadowed this week when HuffPost reported this week that Klobuchar has such a bad reputation over her treatment of staff that a number of potential staffers have withdrawn from consideration to manage her campaign because of it.



Facing Costly New Regulations,
Some Gun Shops Close

Several gun dealers in Central and Southern Illinois are closing their businesses rather than pay what they’re saying is thousands of dollars in costs to comply with a law enacted last month.(Snip) Todd Vandermyde, executive director of Federal Firearms Licensees of Illinois, said the requirements aren’t about stopping crime, rather regulating gun shops out of business. "You make it sound like this is a reasonable request but if a small gun shop has to put in a $10,000 surveillance system on top of potentially $3,000 in licenses, how do you expect them to stay in business," he said.

It makes complete sense so Democrats are against it.It also affects how much federal funding the sanctuary communities will receive from American taxpayers. So, of course, Democrats are against this.

Negotiations on a spending accord needed to avert a government shutdown Friday have nearly collapsed, and Republicans say it’s because House Democrats are pushing for new limits on how many illegal immigrants agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement can detain this fiscal year, including violent felons. “Currently there is no cap,” a senior Republican aide close to the negotiations told the Washington Examiner. “They want to put in a cap and have criminals count against it so the number gets smaller and smaller.”The impasse threatens to end any chance of a deal that can be passed in time by both the

MINNEAPOLIS — Sen. Amy Klobuchar is pitching herself for the White House as the commonsense Midwestern answer to President Donald Trump — while former staffers portray her as a brutal boss who mistreated them. The run-up to Klobuchar’s expected presidential campaign launch on Sunday was sidetracked by former aides, speaking anonymously for fear of retribution, who described a toxic office environment including demeaning emails, thrown office supplies and requests for staff to perform personal chores for the senator. It’s a sharp departure from the public brand that Klobuchar has built to get to this moment:

Congress is already considering
impeachment—but won´t admit it

Last week, no fewer than six committees of the House of Representatives were investigating potential grounds for impeaching Donald Trump as president of the United States. They don’t use the word “impeachment.” Their instructions from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) are to describe their work in narrower, less inflammatory terms. But the question is never far away: Does Trump’s record of norm-busting, rule-bending and apparent law-breaking, from conflicts of interest to murky connections with foreign governments, justify removing him from office? “We have to see what the facts are," Pelosi said recently. "We shouldn´t be impeaching for a political

Acting White House chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney appears on Fox News to discuss the ongoing political efforts of the resistance movement, Nancy Pelosi’s faux-negotiation strategy, and the larger objective to secure the southern border. In the distant background, President Trump is already building enhanced fencing to secure the U.S-Mexico border and the larger conversation is about the politics of funding. Mulvaney notes the funding for border security can come from a variety of mechanisms available to the President, so the issue of direct funding for a border wall is essentially a political argument where democrats must maintain the optics of resistance.

Everything you need to know about this propaganda is obvious in the first few seconds of the interview with Gayle King: “I know this has been a very difficult week for you and the state of Virginia, so where would you like to begin”… Obviously there has been a great deal of planning and careful construct for this interview. CBS is openly attempting to rehabilitate Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. It becomes more obvious as you listen to Northam speak that: (a) he’s an idiot; and, (b) whoever put him into office is not willing to lose their investment. (Video)

UPDATED Not in her notes or original report You would think that an admission of guilt would be included in a Title IX coordinator’s first report on a sexual misconduct investigation, or at least her notes. You’d be really suspicious if that admission of guilt showed up in the amended version of her report – after an accused student was unexpectedly granted an appeal. California State University-Fresno got rebuked in court this week for an unfair sexual misconduct proceeding against an accused student.

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar will enter the 2020 presidential race on today. The media will likely frame the 58-year-old three term senator as a moderate voice. However, Kloubuchar is well known in DC for her nasty and spiteful disposition and tendency toward fits of uncontrollable rage and anger. (Snip)Klobuchar’s campaign announcement comes amid several news reports that staff in her Senate office were asked to do menial tasks, including some personal in nature like laundry, making it difficult for her to hire high-level campaign strategists

Officials in Portland, Ore. recently estimated it will cost $640 million over the next 10 years in order to help adequately prevent homelessness in the area, but a report out this week shows that many citizens from the City of Roses have simply resorted to calling the police on unwanted vagrants. In fact, authorities say that more any other problem, residents are calling the emergency hotline to complain about homeless people even when immediate danger is not present. Katie Shepherd of the Willamette Week reports that the Portland Police Bureau receives a call from the public on average every 15

WASHINGTON -- The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the U.S. needs to investigate reports of American mercenaries working abroad for possible violations of the law. Frontier Services Group, which was created by Blackwater founder Erik Prince, days ago announced a preliminary deal with China to build a training center in Xinjiang. Up to a million Uyghurs have been imprisoned in government indoctrination camps in the region. In October, Buzzfeed reported on the Delaware-incorporated Spear Operations Group using American mercenaries in a

WHEN THOMAS EDISON established his Pearl Street power plant in New York City in 1892, he used coal for fuel, not wood. Wood fuel could not compete with the cost of coal in 1892 and it still can’t today. Nevertheless, burning of biomass is widely regarded as sustainable and promoted as a solution for climate change, especially in Europe. (Snip) A 2012 study by Synapse Energy Economics estimated that the average smokestack of a U.S. biomass plant emitted about 1.67 tons of CO2 per megawatt-hour of electricity generated, or 50 to 85 percent greater than emissions from a coal-fired plant.

Donald Trump’s top Latin America adviser has claimed “there is not a single scenario” in which Nicolás Maduro and his “cronies” are able to retain power in Venezuela. The revolt against Maduro’s regime is entering its forth week, with the Venezuelan strongman showing no sign of relinquishing power despite a startling and largely unforeseen challenge from a previously obscure opposition leader called Juan Guaidó. An anticipated large-scale military abandonment of Hugo Chávez’s heir has not materialized despite Guaidó – who is now recognized as Venezuela’s legitimate interim president by most western governments –

Now that both the House and Senate have cleared Donald Trump of Democrat-inspired allegations of Russian collusion, it is worth revisiting one anecdote that escaped significant attention during the hysteria but continues to have U.S. security implications. As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton worked with Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev, to create U.S. technology partnerships with Moscow’s version of Silicon Valley, a sprawling high-tech campus known as Skolkovo. Clinton’s handprint was everywhere on the 2009-2010 project, the tip of a diplomatic spear

But what a gift this week has been, at least for those of us who prefer our news heavily spiced with scandal. Just when it seemed like

Palm Beach County Democrat and political powerbroker Andre Fladell is as angry at CNN’s fake news as Donald J. Trump. And, it sounds a little different when it’s coming from one of the most powerful Democrats in the Sunshine State. “What’s hurting the country the most, in my opinion, is the dysfunctional and disgusting reporting of a cable channel called CNN,” Fladell said during a meeting earlier this month of the United South County Democrats. Once awarded the honorary title of “Prince of Palm Beach” by the county’s commissioners, Fladell is a legendary political operative recognized across Florida, in part
