    The Western States Sheriffs’ Association has issued a declaration of “no confidence” in Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, saying he’s led a Biden team that has turned the southern border into “an invisible line in the sand.” The sheriffs, who represent 17 states, called on President Biden to oust Mr. Mayorkas and find a new department chief who will work with them to restore respect for the border and immigration law.... ...“America’s sheriffs have watched in disbelief as the southern border has turned into an invisible line in the sand,” the sheriffs said this week in a position paper signed...

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A Russian national who served as a primary source for a dossier of negative research about former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that he lied to the FBI about the legitimacy of his own sources. A judge set an April trial date for Igor Danchenko, a former analyst at the Brookings Institution whose lawyer says he’s being maligned in a deliberately false narrative by people with an agenda. Danchenko’s lawyer, Mark Schamel, said in a statement that the 39-page indictment “presents a false narrative designed to humiliate and slander a renowned expert...

    Fresh polling from Fox News confirms an emerging trend: While his GOP rivals poll competitively or ahead of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump consistently trails her by a substantial margin. The new national survey shows Ohio Governor John Kasich -- who has no mathematical path to the nomination -- leading Clinton by a whopping 11 points (51/40), with Texas Senator Ted Cruz edging the former Secretary of State by three points (47/44). By contrast, controversial real estate tycoon Donald Trump trails Clinton by 11 points (38/49). Roughly half of registered voters say they'd be "scared" Trump wins the...
  • Hillary Clinton's 'deplorables' speech shocked voters five years ago - but some feel it was prescient

    The Washington Post, via Yahoo News ^ | August 31, 2021 | by Roxanne Roberts
    Let's start with the obvious: "Basket of deplorables" is a weird turn of phrase. There are baskets and there are deplorable people, but pairing the two is the oddest of linguistic odd couples. Hillary Clinton said those three words in the final months of her 2016 presidential campaign, making rhetorical and political history. There were two kinds of Donald Trump supporters, she explained: Voters who feel abandoned and desperate, who she placed in one metaphorical basket, and those she called "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic" - her "basket of deplorables." Trump - the same man who announced his candidacy...

    Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders acknowledged Sunday that she was inoculated against COVID-19 “months ago” — with the “Trump vaccine.” Sanders, former President Donald Trump’s spokesperson from 2017 to 2019, also railed against the “misinformation thrown at me by politicians and the media” she was pelted with before making the call, she said in an opinion piece in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. SNIP She blamed President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institutes of Health, for “misjudging” the “Trump vaccine.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — John Durham, the federal prosecutor tapped to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation, has been presenting evidence before a grand jury as part of his probe, a person familiar with the matter said Friday. The development is a potential sign that Durham may be mulling additional criminal charges beyond the one he brought last year against a former FBI lawyer who admitted altering a document related to a Trump campaign aide who’d been under FBI surveillance. Durham is also expected to complete a report at some point. A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment, citing an...
  • Oh, So That's Why the DOJ Inspector General Couldn't Find the FBI Leakers from 2016

    What the hell is going on at the FBI? You can say the same about the Department of Justice overall. After years of investigating the leaks to the press during the 2016 election, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz said that they don’t know who was leaking because it seems as if everyone was just talking to the press willy-nilly and sharing sensitive information. In short, there were more leaks at the FBI than the Iraqi Navy during the 2016 race at a time when our nation’s preeminent law enforcement and domestic intelligence agency had to be as apolitical as possible....

    VIDEOJake Tapper loves to use the labels "election liars" and "The Big Lie." On Sunday he again labeled Jim Jordan as an "election liar." Of course, he is referring to the 2020 election but as you can see, Tapper himself was a big defender of "The Big Lie" that there was Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election which by his own standards would make him an "election liar." As part of his promotion of "The Big Lie" about the 2016 election, watch how Tapper in 2018 desperately defended "The Big Lie" that the FISA warrant against Carter Page was somehow...

    Hillary Clinton, who frequently cast doubt on the results of the 2016 election, says doing so regarding the 2020 presidential contest is “doing Putin’s work.” Clinton made the unsurprising remarks in an interview on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’ “We never thought we had to worry about domestic enemies,” the former First Lady lamented. “We never thought we had to worry about people who didn’t believe in our democracy.” “Sadly, what we’ve seen over the last four years and particularly since the election is that we have people in our own country who are doing Putin’s work,” she claimed.

    Washington (AFP) - The Trump administration secretly obtained the phone records of Washington Post journalists who reported on allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the newspaper reported Friday, prompting concerns over freedom of speech. The Justice Department sent letters to three reporters -- Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller, and former Post reporter Adam Entous -- saying that it had received work, cell or home phone records "for the period from April 15, 2017 to July 31, 2017," according to the Post. The letters did not specify why the records were seized. But, near the end of that period,...

    How did a filthy rich guy bridge the gap between himself and us regular workaday Americans? First, he's basically a workaday guy at heart too. Like most of us, by his own admission he's "basically cheap." But most of all, he's funny and a smile, or even better, a laugh will always be the shortest distance between people. It wasn't until a kind patriot ("LC"'re famous!) sent me four books by Donald Trump that I finally realized just how hilarious he can be. Reading them, I expected to learn a lot. I did not expect to laugh a lot. But...

    Average wages rose sharply in 2019 in then-President Donald Trump’s go-go economy and also rose again in 2020 as China’s coronavirus pushed many lower-income people out of jobs, according to the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute (EPI). The spikes reveal the Trump gains at the 2019 end of the EPI chart, released February 24 in the group’s annual “The State of Working America 2020 wages report.”

    Dozens of Republicans in former President George W. Bush’s administration are leaving the party, dismayed by a failure of many elected Republicans to disown Donald Trump after his false claims of election fraud sparked a deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol last month. These officials, some who served in the highest echelons of the Bush administration, said they had hoped that a Trump defeat would lead party leaders to move on from the former president and denounce his baseless claims that the November presidential election was stolen. But with most Republican lawmakers sticking to Trump, these officials say they no...

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis says his party must do everything in its power to abolish the Electoral College. “Hillary won this election, and when all the votes are all counted, by what will likely be more than a million votes,” he wrote of the Democratic presidential nominee in an email to Politico Sunday. ADVERTISEMENT “So how come she isn’t going to the White House in January?” the 1988 Democratic standard-bearer asked. "Because of an anachronistic Electoral College system that should have been abolished 150 years ago. “That should be at the top of the Democratic priority list while...

    Hillary Clinton surged to a broad advantage against Donald Trump in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, capitalizing on Trump’s recent campaign missteps. Two-thirds of Americans see him as biased against groups such as women, minorities or Muslims, and a new high, 64 percent, call Trump unqualified to serve as president. . . . Americans by 68-28 percent think his comment about Judge Gonzalo Curiel was racist. Regardless of whether or not it was racist, 85 percent say it was inappropriate. . . . Most generally, the public by 56-36 percent, a 20-point margin, says Trump is standing against their...

    During the H1N1 crisis, there was never a time when I felt pressure to misrepresent facts, dismiss advice from medical experts or praise the president. The H1N1 flu pandemic was an early and serious homeland security challenge for the Obama Administration. The first cases were detected in Mexico, but not publicly announced, a few weeks before President Obama's 2009 visit to Mexico City. I accompanied Obama on that trip, but we didn't learn about the virus that was beginning to sweep through North America until we returned to Washington. By the end of April 2009, a public health emergency was...
