    The recent surges in U.S. coronavirus cases can be traced to two key factors -- crowds of protesters and proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border, Dr. Scott Atlas, a senior fellow at The Hoover Institution, said Saturday night. Most of the cases in the Southwest -- California, Arizona and Texas -- are occuring in counties closest to the U.S.-Mexico border, Atlas told anchor Jon Scott during an appearance on on "Fox Report Weekend." "When you look in the southern counties of California, Arizona and the bordering counties of Texas -- with the Mexico border -- these are where most of these...

  • Donald Trump attacks Senators Mitt Romney and Pat Toomey as 'RINOS' after the two Republicans condemn his commutation of Roger Stone's jail sentence as 'corruption' and a 'mistake'

    UK Daily Mail ^ | July 12 2020 | GEOFF EARLE / ANDREW COURT / ARIEL ZILBER
    President Donald Trump attacked a pair of Republican senators who condemned his Friday night order to grant clemency to longtime advisor Roger Stone – calling them Republicans 'in name only.' His late-night blast came after they became the only GOP senators to rebuke Trump for eliminating the 40-month sentence for his longtime associate, who was convicted by a jury of witness tampering and lying to Congress. The response of Romney – the only Republican to vote for an article of impeachment against Trump – was withering, while that of Toomey was more measured, but both said Trump's decision was wrong.

    The Washington Times ^ | JULY 11, 2020 | Stephen Dinan
    Leaders of some of the country’s biggest companies signed a letter Saturday urging President Trump not to make a new attempt at revoking the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, saying it would be a significant disruption to lose those employees during the coronavirus recovery. The companies, which range from Apple and Amazon to Target and General Motors, said the illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who are able to work due to the DACA program “have been critical members of our workforce, industries and communities for years now.” “This is no time to disrupt the economic recovery of our companies and communities, nor time...

  • Joe Biden’s ‘Unity’ Platform with Bernie Sanders Gives Free Health Care to DACA Illegal Aliens

    In the Joe Biden-Bernie Sanders “Unity” platform, Democrats are vowing to provide free, American taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens who are able to enroll in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The proposed Democrat Party platform, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would restart the DACA program — allowing millions of illegal aliens to enroll — and ensure they are provided with taxpayer-subsidized Obamacare plans. The platform also would allow all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. to purchase healthcare coverage in the federal marketplace and more quickly allow...

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    The far left, led by Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), is championing a reform measure dubbed the “BREATHE Act,” which contains a slew of radical proposals, including the call to incentivize states to pass laws that expand voting access, allowing “local and State resident voting for undocumented people.” The proposal, drafted in partnership with the Movement for Black Lives, aims to overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system, providing a range of radical changes — from defunding the police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to establishing a commission tasked with designing reparations for victims of “mass criminalization.”...

    The new North American free trade agreement that goes into effect Wednesday was touted by U.S. President Donald Trump as an engine of American job creation. But Japan's automakers are largely opting instead to keep operations in place and pay Mexican workers more or even just pay tariffs. The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement requires 40% or more of parts for each passenger vehicle be manufactured by workers who are paid at least $16 per hour as a condition to make them tariff free in the region. Trump hailed that feature as a way to boost production in the U.S., which has a...

    Customs and Border Protection plans to deploy up to 200 autonomous surveillance towers as it expands its work with the portable, off-the-grid systems into a program of record. The towers, supplied by contractor Anduril, are designed as unmanned sentinels along the Southern border with Mexico that operate autonomously in remote areas where grid power is not available. The agency has been testing the technology for a couple of years. CBP tested four of the towers in the San Diego region in early 2018, and has bought 56 additional towers since, it said in its statement. Ultimately, CBP wants to procure...

    Senators aim to limit Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/29/20 03:19 PM EDT A bipartisan group of senators is trying to place limits on President Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany unless the administration is able to meet a slew of requirements. The proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), would prohibit the administration from reducing the number of active-duty troops in Germany below 34,500 unless the Pentagon can certify to Congress that it is in the national security interest of the United States and would not negatively undermine European alliances or NATO....
