    The crackdown measures on illegal immigration Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled in Noagles, Arizona Tuesday continue to draw intense reactions spanning from abject horror to welcome relief. Professor and Washington Post contributor Daniel W. Drezner began the day by issuing a sincere apology for touching off a viral fake news scandal. Immediately after Tuesdayís announcement, Drezner tweeted that the Attorney General had described all ďillegal immigrantsĒ as ďfilth.Ē The tweet was quickly retweeted thousands of times and contributed to an outpouring of misdirected outrage at Mr. Sessions over his use of the word. In fact, as Dreznerís apology on the...
  • Obama is America's Version of Stanley Baldwin

    04/13/2017 1:48:38 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | April 13, 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Last year, President Obama assured the world that "we are living in the most peaceful, prosperous and progressive era in human history," and that "the world has never been less violent." Translated, those statements meant that active foreign-policy volcanoes in China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and the Middle East would probably not blow up on what little was left of Obama's watch. Obama is the U.S. version of Stanley Baldwin, the suave, three-time British prime minister of the 1920s and 1930s. Baldwin's last tenure (1935-1937) coincided with the rapid rise of aggressive German, Italian and Japanese fascism. Baldwin was a...

    President Trump selected Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green for Army secretary after his initial pick backed out two months ago, the White House announced Friday evening. Green was rumored in mid-March to be the leading candidate for the military post. If selected, the gubernatorial candidate would have to put his state political ambitions on hold, though the payout, for a much bigger position on the federal level, would be an upgrade even from governor. The 52-year-old physician has served three tours overseas and later created AlignMD, an emergency room management firm. He joined the state Senate in early 2013 and...
  • Susan Rice's Domestic Spying is a National security Nightmare

    What a fitting cherry atop the Barack Obama legacy of eroding American safety: it turns out his National Security advisor was rifling through countless conversations that just happened to involve private citizens, in a quest to block Donald Trumpís path to the presidency. I know Susan Riceís story is that sure, there was unmasking but she in no way leaked details in an attempt to harm Trump. We can all evaluate how credible that is, coming from a woman who lied about Benghazi in service to an administration that mobilized the IRS against conservatives. But as we prepare for her...
  • President Trumpís most inspired pick Steve Bannon loses National Security Council role

    Chief strategist Steve Bannon was President Trumpís most inspired and best pick. If any had any doubt as to Trumpís depth of understanding† of the problems we faced by jihad terrorists and left-wing radicals, Bannon assuaged those concerns. So this is not good. The presence of Bannon was the one person in the Trump administration those fighting in defense of freedom were counting on. The trimmers and the Islamic apologists are winning. Trump is repeating the same mistakes that Bush made. This is a slippery slope, Mr. President once you do not want to go down. Less Jared, Mattis and...

    At State, Marshall served as chief of protocol from 2009 to 2013. In that role, she helped the State Department and White House manage issues related to diplomatic protocol. She entered the Clinton sphere during Bill Clintonís 1992 presidential campaign, working as a special assistant to Hillary Clinton. She later worked on Clintonís senatorial and presidential campaigns, helping lead fundraising efforts. The DC Leaks emails appear to be authentic. The emails, which appear to be from Marshallís Gmail account, span the period from March 2015 through June 2016.

    UPDATE: Susan Rice Confirms Her ďUnmasking RequestsĒ Were for President Obamaís Daily Briefing (PDB)Ö With a general set of narrative Ďtalking pointsí in hand President Obamaís Former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, appeared this morning on MSNBC for an interview with Andrea Mitchell. This is the ĎWe-Have-To-Respond-phaseĎ, which necessitates the optic. Andrea Mitchell is considered a trustworthy ally of the Clinton/Obama political networks; as such, it is not a surprise to see Mitchell selected as the interviewer. Mitchellís use of wording carefully guides Susan Rice through the narrow path of self-incrimination by providing plausible deniability for verbal missteps. You already...

    Hillary Clinton may have resigned her secretary role at the State Department in 2013 ó but her access to top secret and classified information didnít end then. Under Barack Obama, she was allowed to continue to view highly sensitive intel documents for years ó well past her announced run for the presidency in April 2015, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. Why? Toward what possible end? So she could better write her memoir. File this in the ďYouíve Got to Be Kidding MeĒ folder. And it wasnít just Clinton who kept the power of top secret access. It was six...

    The U.S. intelligence official who ďunmaskedĒ the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with Trumpís team is someone ďvery well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,Ē a source told Fox News on Friday. Fox News reports: Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of classified names told Fox News that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now knows who is responsible ó and that person is not in the FBI. For a private citizen to be ďunmasked,Ē or named, in an intelligence report is extremely rare. Typically, the American is a suspect...

    Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is highly regarded within political circles for his ability to capture the mood of the moment and milk it to his advantage. However, whether Senator Schumer should command respect based upon consistency and willingness to put principles ahead of "politics of the moment" is another matter. This can be seen clearly by the Senator's statements in the current flap over whether a White House official - Karl Rove is the one taking the rap in press allegations -- had permitted disclosure of a CIA agent's name. Don't take my word for it. Let Senator Schumer's...

    The Trump administration is making it tougher for millions of visitors to enter the United States by demanding new security checks before giving visas to tourists, business travelers and relatives of American residents. Diplomatic cables sent last week from Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson to all American embassies instructed consular officials to broadly increase scrutiny. It was the first evidence of the ďextreme vettingĒ Mr. Trump promised during the presidential campaign.

    In a clash with President Trump's environmental team, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has declared that climate change is a threat to national security and one military planners must consider in drawing up strategies. According to a report from ProPublica, Mattis told Democratic senators that climate change is real and "can be a driver of instability." His position, at odds with President Trump and his Environmental Protection Agency chief, came in answers to questions from senators following his confirmation hearing. They were released to ProPublica which reached out to the White House and Pentagon for comment without success. _____________________________________________ Andy Revkin...

    Our big spending national government‚ÄĒwhether Republican, Democrat or whatever‚ÄĒran up a national debt approaching ten trillion dollars during the 220 and some odd years prior to Obama taking office. During Obama‚Äôs 8 year term, our big spending government nearly doubled that debt. No one‚Äôs fault (cough, cough), but we and our posterity are now staring at an unbelievable, unmanageable, unsustainable, unpayable mountain of twenty trillion dollars in accumulated debt with no let up in sight!

    Via Raul Ilargi Meijer of The Automatic Earth blog,Obviously, like hopefully many people, I’ve been following the WikiLeaks CIA revelations, and closely. It’s too early for too many conclusions, if only because WikiLeaks has announced much more will flow from that same pipeline. But one thing is already clear: the CIA is -still- a club that sees enemies behind every tree, and behind every TV set too. Which is not as obvious a world view as it may seem; it’s just something we’ve become used to.Moreover, as we see time and again, organizations like the CIA and NATO have...

    President Trumpís claims that the Obama administration sought to undermine his presidency received some support on Wednesday from a New York Times report on the Obama White Houseís activities in the weeks before the inauguration. According to The Times, Obama White House officials waged a campaign to procure, save and disperse classified intelligence regarding Trump associatesí contacts with Russians. The campaign also involved curtailing the Trump teamís access to highly classified information and of lowering classification ratings on other information about the ongoing Russia investigation so that it could be more widely shared across the government. According to The Timesí...
