    Washington Examiner ^ | November 21, 2022 09:32 AM | by Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist |
    The Biden administration, desperate to mute headlines about record illegal immigrant crossings, has secretly started a new system to let in potential lawbreakers that also puts them on a fast track to legal status. The program amounts to an amnesty ticket and preselects some of those caught up in Mexico’s immigration controls. Word of the program has spread like wildfire, swamping border camps involved in the program, according to a report by immigration expert Todd Bensman with the Center for Immigration Studies. In his report, shared with Secrets Monday, Bensman said, “Thousands are hearing about this new legal way in...
  • Lula's leftist triumph: Is this Latin America's second 'pink tide'?

    10/31/2022 4:28:04 AM PDT · by FarCenter · 22 replies
    Rio de Janeiro (AFP) – With his narrow election victory over incumbent Jair Bolsonaro Sunday, Brazil's president-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva appears to have cemented a left-wing political conquest of Latin America. From Mexico in the north to Chile in the south, the region's constantly see-sawing political map once again resembles that of the early 2000s, when a so-called "pink tide" of left-leaning governments washed over it. But analysts say this time is different: the trend is driven by pragmatism rather than ideology. "It's not because Latin Americans are becoming more leftist. I don't think there's any evidence to...

    Reuters via Yahoo ^ | August 17, 2022 | By Brendan O'Brien and Scott DiSavino
    (Reuters) -Californians were urged to ratchet down the use of electricity in their homes and businesses on Wednesday as a wave of extreme heat settles over much of the state, stretching tight power supplies to their breaking point. Temperatures in the most populous state are forecast to climb to well above 100 Fahrenheit (38 Celsius) during the afternoon. The extreme conditions are the latest sign of the impact of climate change in the U.S. West, where wildfires and severe drought have emerged as a growing threat. As spells of excessive heat become more frequent, the strain on power and water...

    A mother called 911 saying she found her boyfriend naked in bed with her 7-year-old daughter, and after he ran off, the mother got in her car, chased him, and ended up hitting him, KCBD-TV reported. The incident occurred in August 2021 in Texas, the station said. It came to light this week when the suspect was jailed in the Lubbock County Detention Center. The boyfriend was identified in the police report as 29-year-old Delmer Orlando Ortiz Licona, but his name is listed as Orlando Delmer-Ortiz at the jail, KCBD reported, adding that the Lubbock man is facing charges of...

    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Honduras extradited former President Juan Orlando Hernández to the United States on Thursday to face drug trafficking and weapons charges in a dramatic reversal for a leader once touted by U.S. authorities as a key ally in the war on the drugs.Just three months after leaving office, a handcuffed Hernández boarded an airplane with agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration bound for the United States, where he faces charges in the Southern District of New York. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Hernandez "abused his position as President of Honduras from 2014 through 2022 to operate...

    Until Nov. 16, 2010, Los Angeles entertainment executive Don Rosenberg considered himself a lifelong liberal and supporter of the Democratic Party. But the minute he picked up the ringing phone, his life changed forever. The caller was from San Francisco General Hospital. She told him that his 25-year-old son, Drew, a second-year student at Golden Gate School of Law, had been mowed down on his motorcycle by a car that, Rosenberg would later learn, was driven by an illegal immigrant without a license. The man, Roberto Galo, from Honduras, hit Drew, who was thrown from his motorcycle. Galo reportedly drove...

    Kamala's corporate plot to encourage illegals is matched by Joe's dubiously legal plot to sneak illegals into the States with the television cameras off. It's doubtful that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris like one another, but there seems to be a coordinated effort between the two to bring in more illegal immigrants to the states, something they are succeeding at rather spectacularly. How else do we explain Kamala Harris's trip to Honduras, to attend the presidential inauguration of radical left-wing presidenta, Xiomara Castro, while Joe Biden's minions are sneaking in illegals by the thousands away from the cameras and flying...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Honduras next week to attend the inauguration of President-elect Xiomara Castro, the Central American country’s first female president. Castro, the leftist opposition party candidate, won out over the country’s ruling party in November. She will be inaugurated Jan. 27. She is the former first lady and her husband, José Manuel Zelaya was ousted by the army in a coup in 2009. She rode a wave of popular discontent with 12 years of National Party governance, which peaked in former President Juan Orlando Hernández’s second term.

    More than 70 flights transporting migrants from the southern border to Jacksonville have landed in the dark of night in recent months as the Biden administration struggles to empty overflowing border facilities, the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said. It is the first time the state of Florida has disclosed the number of confirmed flights arriving in the state since the summer. The governor's office has scrambled in recent weeks to uncover who is facilitating the mystery flights landing in northern Florida daily, but the Biden administration has refused to disclose any information, one official said.

    The Biden regime has sneakily convened a forum in Washington, DC, on October 27–28. Its real purpose—contrary to the stated purpose of fighting corruption—is to assure Guatemala’s border with Mexico remains open. Illegal immigrants can continue to flood our country and become Democrat voters. Guatemala—the key to illegal immigration with its 595-mile border with Mexico—is the only land route from South and Central America to the United States. Migrants from all over the world now pass through Guatemala’s borders. They are open thanks to Biden. Under Obama, Biden abused power to place criminal allies in charge of Guatemala’s judiciary and...

    A headline on Newsweek’s web site grabbed my attention in early May: “Wokeness Has Come for Adoption. It’s the Children Who Will Suffer.” This is a subject I know well: My wife and I have fostered three child refugees—from Zimbabwe, Guatemala, and Honduras respectively. These foster children are functionally adopted, and have become full-fledged members of our family. The article noted that a vice-president at Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption agency in the country, had told a reporter that allowing white families to adopt black children from the foster care system “can cause a lot of harm to...

    Russia has unambiguously stated its position that the self-ruling island of Taiwan is a part of the mainland-based People's Republic of China, as strategic partners Moscow and Beijing seek to further align their positions regarding geopolitical issues across the globe. During his visit Tuesday to the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov declared Moscow's stance on the issue. "Russia, like the overwhelming majority of other countries, considers Taiwan to be part of the People's Republic of China," Lavrov said. "We have proceeded and will proceed from this premise in our foreign policy." Only 14 countries today, along...

    A major power outage in Central America cut electricity to some 15 million residents on Wednesday, with the worst impact felt in Honduras and Nicaragua. The two most-affected countries saw power for nearly all residents “practically go down to zero volts,” siad EOR communications head Evelyn Flores. The grid operator said the outage began at 1 p.m. (1900 GMT) but the cause and specific origin of the massive loss of power still being determined. Energy use fell from 8,300 megawatts to just 2,400 megawatts across the region with the exception of Panama and Costa Rica, which were mostly unaffected, EOR...

    Human poop can reveal more than you might think, even when it's really, really old. In a new study of a Central American Maya civilization, samples of ancient feces have shown how the size of this community varied significantly in response to contemporary climate change. Researchers identified four distinct periods of population size shift as a reaction to particularly dry or particularly wet periods, which haven't all been documented before: 1350-950 BCE, 400-210 BCE, 90-280 CE, and 730-900 CE. In addition, the flattened poop piles show that the city of Itzan – which in the modern day would be in...

    Just before the Memorial Day weekend, Senate Democrats quietly confirmed a longtime anti-Israel activist to serve on the United States Postal Service's Board of Governors, raising further questions about the Biden administration's embrace of those who serve on the front lines in the fight to delegitimize the Jewish state. Democrats confirmed by voice vote Friday evening Anton Hajjar, a longtime member of and legal adviser to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), a notoriously anti-Israel organization that promotes anti-Semitic canards. The group routinely and inaccurately refers to Israel as an "apartheid state," a term meant to stoke anger at Israel, and...
