Weiner is a disgraced former congressman and New York mayoral candidate who recently pled guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor. Abedin kept a email account...

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz issued subpoenas Thursday to two ATF agents after they failed to show at a hearing examining the 2011 murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent Jaime Zapata. “I'm tired of hearing from just [Justice Department] management, I want to hear from the people that actually are on the front lines doing this,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said.  Chaffetz complained ATF “continues to insist” the committee should not speak with Turk and Temple.  The one other witness, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, did not escape unscathed when he contended he was not prepared for the hearing....

    Mexican law enforcement officers last weekend arrested the man believed to be the final fugitive from the “rip crew” that engaged in a 2010 gunfight between Border Patrol agents that resulted in the death of agent Brian Terry. Jesus Rosario Favela Astorga was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the killing of Terry. "The arrest of Favela Astorga resulted from the unwavering commitment of the United States and our law enforcement partners in Mexico to bring to justice those responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry, who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country," Alana Robinson, the acting...

    The position of Secretary of Homeland Security has been vacant since July, when current White House chief of staff John Kelly left for his present position. Four unnamed administration officials confirmed to Politico on Wednesday that Trump will nominate Nielsen, a veteran of the department who served as Kelly’s chief of staff, and reportedly has his absolute confidence and support. "She would be the first person to run the department who has actually worked there," an unnamed person "close to the administration" told Politico. "She has a deep familiarity." Nielsen's structured way of working has reportedly ruffled some feathers in...

    President Trump has been rightfully demanding that aliens who are citizens of countries that have an involvement with terrorism must undergo “extreme vetting.” This is certainly an important and commonsense requirement. However, the computer systems used by both Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) inside the United States are unable to provide CBP inspectors at ports of entry the data they need to prevent transnational criminals and international terrorists from entering the country. Nor can these systems provide the vital information and records to USCIS adjudications officers that would allow them to prevent aliens present in the United States from improperly...

    It’s a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy, with 18 of them for tunnels and bridges. So what are they exactly? The MTA’s man in charge of the bridges and tunnels, Cedrick Fulton, dodged Carlin’s questions Wednesday. “I said no comment,” he said. Some MTA board members, including New York City Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg, say they know too little about the towers – even with half the money already spent and some of the towers already up. “A lot of the board members felt they didn’t have all the details they would have wanted, myself included,” she said....

    One of President Trump’s major campaign promises was to bring in travel bans, with the specific purpose of allowing security services the opportunity to adequately vet newcomers. A new rule that the Department of Homeland Security has published in the Federal Register has made a big move in this direction. Under the new rules, the DHS and other agencies will be able to include in their files all information that is publically available on the internet; this includes social media profiles, and chat room records. Applicants will be asked for “social media handles and aliases, associated identifiable information and search...

    Full title: U.S. Denies Request for Puerto Rico Jones Act Waiver as Senator McCain Applies Even More Pressure By Timothy Gardner WASHINGTON, Sept 26 (Reuters) – The Trump administration on Tuesday denied a request to waive shipping restrictions to help get fuel and supplies to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, saying it would do nothing to address the island’s main impediment to shipping, damaged ports. The Jones Act limits shipping between coasts to U.S. flagged vessels. However, in the wake of brutal storms, the government has occasionally issued temporary waivers to allow the use of cheaper, tax free or more readily available...
  • Ignoring new evidence, MSM cling to their Charlottesville narrative

    09/16/2017 5:34:38 AM PDT · by rktman · 18 replies ^ | 9/16/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    The lethal violence of Charlottesville was instantly packaged as a narrative of violent racist Trump supporters killing innocent Americans. Defending that narrative becomes difficult when the facts start to be known, so the obvious response of the Mainstream Media has been to ignore the facts and keep pushing the old narrative. My friend Mark Fitzgibbons pointed out to me that, “still no major liberal news outlet other than Politico has reported the DHS warning to Charlottesville that both sides were preparing for violence, or McAuliffe’s involvement.” That piece of news crushes the narrative, as Mark explained half a month ago....

    WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about members of so-called “anti-fascist” groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if “antifa” should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was...

    The woman who created the 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers filed a lawsuit Friday protesting the Trump administration’s move to phase out the program, saying the decision was done on President Trump’s executive “whim.” Janet Napolitano, who as President Obama’s Homeland Security secretary created the DACA program, is now the president of the University of California, and is leading the school system’s lawsuit demanding the program be reinstated. She said her school system stands to lose money and the chance to educate some of its 4,000 illegal immigrant students, as well as perhaps having to let go its illegal immigrant...

    Many of President Donald Trump’s policies have met resistance in federal courts, but anyone challenging the decision to end deportation protections for thousands of immigrants Tuesday will face a difficult legal fight.... “The reality is that DACA was announced and signed by the secretary of Homeland Security,” said Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, a professor at Penn State Law and director of the school’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights Clinic. “It is a policy document, so it is a tool in administrative law, but it can technically be rescinded, modified, replaced.” President Barack Obama created the program in 2012. He expanded it via...

    Signaling quick action, the Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday that it had already begun moving ahead with an "orderly wind-down of the program," issuing a memo formally rescinding the Obama memo that had created it. "The Department of Justice has carefully evaluated the program’s Constitutionality and determined it conflicts with our existing immigration laws," Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke said. Duke said that the option chosen by Sessions would "limit disruption to current DACA beneficiaries while providing time for Congress to seek a legislative solution." ====== Elaine Duke held a consulting practice at Elaine Duke & Associates, LLC in...

    Politico reports that the Obama Administration “formally classified” Antifa’s activities as “domestic terrorist violence” as early as April 2016. From Politico: Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

    Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous. Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists. Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.” In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They...

While the so-called travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries has garnered most of the attention, it was just a temporary measure designed to give the government the space to stiffen its regular checks so it could be more adept at denying potential terrorists entry.

The agency reportedly installed these at partner offices around the world to gain biometric data that was collected by the other agencies. The scathing revelation...

Bossert cautioned, however, not to plan for the federal government to “swoop in and provide everything” that residents need when they need it. He said while the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA “are responsible for bringing together the firepower of the federal government to assist the state and local governments,” state and local governments...
