According to CNN, “MS'13 members say Trump’s policy and rhetoric serves as a recruitment tool. Activists say Trump is emboldening the gang, making immigrants vulnerable.” (Photo/Video) Very fake news CNN “reports”: The first time members of the MS'13 street gang attacked Margarita’s teenage son in suburban New York, they beat him with a baseball bat. The young man had immigrated from El Salvador three months earlier to join his mother in Nassau County, Long Island.

I’ve known him a bit from my coverage of Capitol Hill, and he’s great to be around, he’s a gentleman, he’s honest, and of course, he’s a hero. And now, he’s dying. He has always been a “maverick” and a “rebel.” I think it’s his personality. But ultimately, there is a self-indulgence to the man that puts himself before what’s right for the country. I think some of it, maybe a lot of it, stems from his involvement in the Keating Five scandal back It Was Trump’s Fault Fri, 28 02 2017 08:02:54 GMT 468162f8cae0cf32e309169198feb2c21b4cb78f Commentary Magazine, by John Podhoretz Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 28 02 2017 08:02:54 GMT Exactly two years ago yesterday, I published a blog post on this site called Trump: The Case for Despairing—About America. I wrote: “The issue with Trump is that his approach can only be called ‘the politics of unseriousness.’ He engages with no issue, merely offers a hostile and pithy soundbite bromide about it. He yammers. He describes how wonderful things will be when he acts against something or other without explaining how he will act, what he will do, or how it will work.” Reader, we married him. He is our president. And his unseriousness just played a key role Schumer: &#34;Inspired&#34; By McCain Vote On Health Bill; &#34;Let´s Turn The Page And Work Together&#34; Fri, 28 40 2017 07:40:42 GMT 2e61d5ccbf42d431619c7e863d6a6b2f5fa6a54d Real Clear Politics, by Tim Hains Posted By: KarenJ1- Fri, 28 40 2017 07:40:42 GMT Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said he was inspired by the speech Senator John McCain delivered shortly after his cancer diagnosis.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz has avoided facing any media since her law enforcement arrested her former IT staffer Imran Awan Tuesday on bank fraud charges. Wasserman Schultz, who walked down the House Capitol steps late Wednesday afternoon following remarks she made on the floor, caught site of The Daily Caller’s reporter and nervously turned around and ran back up the steps with her staffer in tow.

Though the flight ultimately wasn´t successful, officials told Fox News, Iran´s rocket is thought to be a step toward developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could one day carry a nuclear weapon. The sanctions announced on Friday target six Iranian subsidiaries of the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group. The Treasury Department said that group is “central” to Iran’s ballistic missiles program. ‘Sanctuary city’ status could cost Bay State cities millions Fri, 28 52 2017 06:52:03 GMT cf4117a6ebe7cc2fc5f6553162913abc6d9fb8ba Boston Herald, by Dan Atkinson Posted By: John c- Fri, 28 52 2017 06:52:03 GMT A new federal policy to compel immigration detentions by local cops likely conflicts with a bombshell Supreme Judicial Court decision from earlier this week, Bay State elected officials say — and they plan to push back despite the possibility of losing millions of grant dollars. (Snip) The announcement Tuesday came a day after the Supreme Judicial Court barred local officials from holding illegal immigrants solely on detainers from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
