    White House press secretary Sean Spicer forcefully denied on Friday that the Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegal immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border. 'That is 100 per cent not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this,' Spicer told reporters aboard the Marine One helicopter. 'There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.'

The document included unsubstantiated claims of collusion between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin. It also alleged that global tech firm XBT Holding, with operations in Dallas, was instrumental in the...

    A little, that is. Shadi Hamid writes in the LA Times about why Islam isn't like other faiths -- as I've long been explaining here. He explains the reason the Quran is different from the Bible in very articulate terms: Contrary to what many think, there is no Christian equivalent to Koranic "inerrancy," even among far-right evangelicals. Muslims believe the Koran is not only God's word, but God's actual speech -- in other words, every single letter and word in the Koran comes directly from God. This seemingly semantic difference has profound implications. If the Koran is God's speech, and...

    Former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice has no recollection of a conversation at a 2009 dinner party where Hillary Clinton reportedly claims that Gen. Colin Powell advised her to use a personal email account. Riceís inability to recall the conversation makes her the second person to publicly undercut Clintonís claim. Both NBC News and The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told the FBI that Powell offered her the email advice during a dinner party at former Sec. of State Madeleine Albrightís home. Rice and another Henry Kissinger, another former secretary of state, were present at the dinner...

    Following a Hispanic outreach meeting by the Trump campaign numerous media outlets began reporting that Donald Trump was changing his position on immigration, specifically deportation of illegal immigrants. The Trump campaign immediately rebuked the false media reports last night.

The media loves to use the term ďdeportation forceĒ to manufacture an narrative of a new controversy. However, there is already...
