    The release of border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States interior by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been cut by 85 percent in the four weeks since President Trump announced a migration deal with Mexico. Between July 2 and July 9, DHS released about 1,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities, federal data confirms. This indicates that DHS is releasing about 188 border crossers and illegal aliens every day into the country. This is a significant drop in the catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens in just four weeks, since Trump...

    It was late afternoon on May 12, 2017. Two exhausted security researchers could barely unpack the events of what had just happened. Marcus Hutchins and Jamie Hankins, who were working from their homes in the U.K. for Los Angeles-based cybersecurity company Kryptos Logic, had just stopped a global cyberattack dead in its tracks. Hours earlier, WannaCry ransomware began to spread like wildfire, encrypting systems and crippling businesses and transport hubs across Europe. It was the first time in a decade a computer worm began attacking computers on a massive scale. The U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) was one of the...

    Izakaya Sushi Ran, the Castro's gastropub answer to the popular Sausalito restaurant Sushi Ran, has closed. Originally called Nomica when it opened in 2016, it changed names last fall and served izakaya-style small plates, mains, sushi rolls and cocktails. A message on the restaurant's website says the following: "Dear friends, Ya'll, we made a mistake! While rocks r a common prt of anti-homeless architecture, this particular rock is NOT. It's a Japanese garden. Izakaya Sushi is a valued member of the commnity & is supportive of its homeless neighbors.

    A growing number of progressive House Democrats, frustrated with an ongoing spat between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D), are taking the freshman New Yorker to task for accusing Pelosi of treating minority women unfairly. The critics say Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, crossed a line when she accused Pelosi of putting a target on “newly elected women of color” for their far-left policy positions. The remarks — and the media uproar they’ve created — led exasperated Democrats to sound off Thursday against the freshman social-media sensation, accusing Ocasio-Cortez of harboring unrealistic views...

    Drama is building ahead of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill. Democrats are working to solidify their strategy to effectively question Mueller in the limited time they have. Democrats say their plans are still in flux and that they’re still negotiating with Mueller and his team over the logistics of the appearance. As of Thursday, Mueller’s testimony was set to be capped at roughly two hours per committee. Under the current agreement, all 22 members of the Intelligence panel will get a question, as will 22 members of the 41-person Judiciary Committee. Those questions will be...

    SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers are seeking once again to force President Trump to release his tax returns by blocking access to the state primary election ballot if he does not. The matter is now in the hands of Gov. Gavin Newsom, after the state Senate gave final approval Thursday to SB27, which would require presidential candidates to release their last five years of income tax returns in order to be eligible for the primary election in California.

    Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly calling her, her chief of staff, and the group Justice Democrats "juvenile." "Their ignorance is beyond belief," Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, reportedly said while in the Speaker's Lobby. His comments followed a feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and freshman congresswomen, like Ocasio-Cortez, that involved racially-charged criticism. Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, previously compared moderate Democrats to racists -- prompting Pelosi, at the request of some of her members, warn House Democrats not to attack each other...

    Meghan Markle is reportedly miserable and she gave Prince Harry an ultimatum to choose between her and his family. The Duchess of Sussex allegedly convinced her husband to leave the royal family. “Meghan is so miserable that she can’t face being stuck in the UK for much longer,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “She wants to move to Southern Africa. And she effectively gave him an ultimatum: If they don’t relocate, she wants out. It’s her or his family at this point, and Harry’s chosen his wife.” TOP ARTICLES 1/3 Gigantic 853ft 'Potentially Hazardous' Asteroid Headed For Earth...

    President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he will take executive action to direct the Department of Commerce to obtain an estimate of U.S. citizens from records provided by federal government agencies. “Today, I am here to say we are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population,” the president stated in the Rose Garden of the White House with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Attorney General William Barr by his side. “We will leave no stone unturned,” the president added. President Trump had previously said an executive action was one of multiple...

    Los Angeles County has too many voters. An estimated 1.6 million, according to the latest calculations – which is roughly the population of Philadelphia. That’s the difference between the number of people on the county’s voter rolls and the actual number of voting age residents. This means that L.A. is in violation of federal law, which seeks to limit fraud by requiring basic voter list maintenance to make sure that people who have died, moved, or are otherwise ineligible to vote aren’t still on the rolls. Los Angeles County has made only minimal efforts to clean up its voter rolls...

    Updated at 5:50 p.m. ET President Trump announced Thursday he would sign an executive order to obtain data about the U.S. citizenship and non-citizenship status of everyone living in the United States. In a Rose Garden ceremony, Trump said he would drop efforts to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census. Instead, he'll sign an executive order directing all U.S. agencies to provide the Department of Commerce all information they have on the U.S. citizenship, non-citizenship and immigration status. "We have great knowledge in many of our agencies," Trump said, flanked by Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that media attention over her racial complaints about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is unwarranted as she’s “just pointing out a pattern.” The New York Democrat told CNN’s Manu Raju that claims of “persistent singling out … out of newly elected women of color” by Mrs. Pelosi should be interpreted through a broader context. At issue, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday, were cultural issues that are bigger than intraparty disputes. “Well I think it’s really just pointing out a pattern, right?” she asked Mr. Raju. “We’re not talking just about progressives, it’s singling out four individuals and knowing...

    Damage to the earth’s crust from the magnitude 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes that struck Southern California last week is visible in a kaleidoscopic satellite image released by NASA. The Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena used satellite data to produce a map showing ruptures and displacements not visible to the naked eye — employing technology that has been developed over the last quarter of a century. The imagery was acquired on July 8 and compared with data from April 8. The earthquakes were the largest to hit California in nearly 20 years and...
