  • Trump defends immigration proposal against 'amnesty' criticism from conservatives

    In a series of tweets, Trump chastised Democrats for dismissing his plan, and attempted to assuage immigration hard-liners who likened the administration's latest proposal to amnesty for immigrants already in the country illegally. "No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer," Trump tweeted. "It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!"

    Imagine this: A 46-year-old former congresswoman and mother of three, who just lost a Senate bid to one of the most despised incumbents, sets off on a road trip adventure to clear her head. She instagrams part of her trip to the dentist. She gives a two-hour interview to The Washington Post where she shows no real knowledge of policy. Like a first-year college student, she pontificates on whether the Constitution is still a thing that matters after all these many years.

    President Donald Trump sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter Thursday informing her that he was postponing her upcoming overseas trip because of the ongoing partial government shutdown. The letter served as the president's response to Pelosi's letter the day before urging the president to either delay his State of the Union address or submit it in writing. "Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed," Trump wrote. "We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over."

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

  • Julian Castro: Put ankle monitors on illegal immigrants rather than detaining them

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 13, 2019 | Naomi Lim
    Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro on Sunday said he would prefer to track illegal immigrants using ankle monitors rather than detaining them. The former Obama administration housing chief and former mayor of San Antonio made the comments while discussing how he would deal with the increase in migrant families crossing the southern border illegally, should he win his party's nomination for president in 2020. Castro on Saturday officially launched a 2020 White House bid. "What I believe we could do and what the Obama administration did do, I believe, toward the end of its tenure, was to look at things...

    Al Sharpton is being heavily courted by Democrats seeking his endorsement as they pursue the 2020 presidential nomination, but he said he won't make a decision on who he'll support for at least a year. The liberal civil rights activist and MSNBC host has met with a flurry of possible 2020 contenders in recent weeks, including Sens. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), Cory Booker (D., N.J.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), and he's planning to speak soon with former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D., Texas), the Atlantic reported.

    President Donald Trump had a nonchalant response to criticism from Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday, asking simply, “Who cares?” Ocasio-Cortez said last week that there is “no question” that the president is a racist, adding that “he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge at our border.” At the time, the White House accused Ocasio-Cortez of “sheer ignorance” and cited the president’s support for criminal justice reform. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘No Question’ Trump Is Racist) A reporter asked Trump directly about Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation as the president was departing the White House for a trip to New Orleans...

    Andrew Weissmann, the lead prosecutor for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, has a history of questionable conduct. But the full extent of Weissmann’s alleged prosecutorial misconduct is unclear because some of the most serious charges were hidden behind redactions and secreted in sealed court filings. Two months ago I sued to have these records released, but late Friday federal Judge Sim Lake’s case manager confirmed that several of the sought-after documents are missing from the court record. In early November, Houston attorney Kevin Fulton of the Fulton Law Group filed a motion in a Texas federal court to unseal and unredact...

    Democrats eyeing bids for the White House also are competing to see who is willing to go the highest in raising taxes. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York liberal who is too young constitutionally to become president, nevertheless set a benchmark when she suggested in a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday that rates for the wealthy could top out at up to 70 percent. Julian Castro, an Obama administration Cabinet official who has announced a testing-the-waters presidential committee, quickly jumped on the bandwagon by telling ABC News that it’s time the wealthy be tapped for their “fair share.”

    At a Thursday morning press conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) showed little concern for the fact that illegal aliens crossing the border with impunity might be dangerous for Americans. “Let me just close by saying this: clearly there’s a disparity of shared values in terms of respecting the dignity and worth of everyone – being concerned about every death that happens, uh, because we live in an imperfect world, and that’s very sad,” Pelosi said. “But it is not a justification for having more children die in custody of be separated from their families.”

  • CONFIRMED: President Trump Can Sell Federal Land To Build The Wall

    Big League Politics ^ | January 7, 2019 | Jonathon A. Moseley
    To build a wall along the United States’ international border with Mexico, President Donald Trump could order the sale of approximately 500,000 to 5 million acres of federal land. The U.S. Government currently claims ownership of about 640 million acres of land — or about 28% of the total land mass of the nation. This could raise the entire $25 billion needed to finance building the wall (not just the next installment we are currently fighting over). But one must understand that out of 640 million acres there is a vast diversity of terrain. The task is to select only...

    New Years Day featured Elizabeth Warren going live on Instagram in order to build her brand. Warren has announced her 2020 Candidacy for the office of President. The camera shot featured her kitchen as she drank a beer, the better to seem more relatable to middle-class voters. Sharp-eyed netizens deconstructed the appearance of her kitchen background, however, and turned up the type of ceramic figurine that would immediately doom a Conservative candidate. No word yet from Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton.

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that should the U.S. Supreme Court rule that the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is legal and can’t be dismantled by executive order, then he will have inherited a “scary” amount of power. “If the Supreme Court rules that President Obama was wrong, which they should because… by the way, if he was right, then I’ve been given tremendous power,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Can you imagine me having that power? Wouldn’t that be scary?”

    His national security team had been trying to box him in like every other president. But Trump called their bluff. The story shows how Trump gained the upper hand on the strong military bureacracy and advisers who wanted to keep the status quo in Syria. Key points: Ever since Vietnam the generals have had the upper hand in decisions about war zone deployments. Trump signaled long ago he was opposed to a permanent deployment of troops in Syria and gave generals the order to destroy ISIS within six months. National security team purposely did their planning and presented the...
