    Not only is the Ebola crisis continuing to degrade, but the optics of how the White House has handled the situation are getting worse by the day too. A new report published at Breitbart shows the Obama administration started expediting visas from West Africa in August as the Ebola was (and still is) raging out of control with a 70 percent mortality rate. According to the report, the man who died from Ebola in a Texas hospital after visiting Liberia, had his visa approved in the same month visas were being streamlined. In short, the USCIS has been waiving fees, expediting the...

    The federal government is not considering a travel ban to the United States from Africa, thanks to a “sophisticated multi layer screening system" at airports in Africa, according to the White House. “If we can screen through the transportation system to ensure that individuals that are exhibiting symptoms don't have access to a transportation system, then you can keep the transportation system secure,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained to reporters aboard Air Force One. A travel ban would make it more difficult for professionals to reach Africa to help end the Ebola epidemic, he explained.

    The Obama administration praised a recent agreement between Mexico and Guatemala that could allow even more migrants to hop on so-called "death trains" to try to unlawfully enter the United States. In fact, the administration may even send Mexico foreign aid to help the country implement its "southern border initiative" with Guatemala. At a Thursday Senate hearing on the unaccompanied children who are flooding across the border, Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, the Counselor of the Department of State, told senators that Mexico's "Southern border strategy" with Guatemala "was a welcome step towards improving Mexico’s ability to exercise greater control along...

The “crimes” that led to the impeachment of both Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton and the resignation of Richard Nixon pale in comparison to Obama’s. Johnson’s “crimes” were purely political. He favored a policy of benevolent reconciliation with the Southern States following the Civil War. He issued a series of proclamations that directed the Southern States to hold conventions and elections to reform their governments; he attempted to veto a number of...

In another development, Jackson has paid the $550,000 he owed the U.S. government over his misuse of campaign funds, according to a court filing. There is no connection between Jackson’s payment and his new projected release date, according to the Bureau of Prisons. “Financial obligations and release dates are unrelated,” said prisons spokesman Chris Burke.

The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrat’s focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayor’s race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in...
