    An amendment by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to the proposed coronavirus relief package passed out of the House last week would ensure that stimulus checks are not awarded to illegal aliens living in the United States, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Senate Democrats opened debate on the $1.9 trillion relief package without any GOP support, and it will need to go back to the House for approval if the Senate passes the legislation. AD Included in the package are $1,400 stimulus checks that currently could go to illegal aliens if not explicitly blocked. Cruz, in an amendment announced on Friday,...

    Every movement has its flaws and one of the biggest ones we conservatives have is that we always seem to be waiting for a “man on a white horse” to show up and save the country. We want to just go about our daily lives and then wait for a Reagan, Trump, Cruz, Gowdy, Palin, Limbaugh, Levin, Shapiro, Bongino, or whoever the latest conservative hero is to show up and carry us to victory on their shoulders. Unfortunately, that’s not really how a movement wins. A movement wins when regular people do the right thing, demand changes, and then elevate...

    Amazon, Inc. was forced to withdraw its bid to locate a second headquarters facility in New York City two weeks ago, but New York state and city political leadership hasn't forgotten them. Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, major unions, and businesses have all begun a fierce lobbying campaign to woo Amazon back to the city. The governor has been active, talking to Amazon executives including CEO Jeff Bezos, about a new location  The original deal was cancelled when radical socialist politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez objected to the tax breaks being given away to convince Amazon to...
  • Scarborough: Never Once Heard Trump Say Anything Racially Insensitive'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Given how Joe Scarborough has vilified Donald Trump for years, the Morning Joe host could be the world's least likely character witness for the President. But ironically, Scarborough's overt animus toward Trump makes him that much more credible when he says something positive about the President—as he did on today's Morning Joe. Scarborough swore that—having known Trump for 12 years—he had never in private heard him utter a racially-insensitive word. "We [gestures toward Mika] saw him for 12 years behind closed doors. Never, ever, once—I'll say under oath, I'll put into an affidavit—never once heard him say anything close to...

    The number of deportations from Sweden to Morocco has increased thanks to the use of fingerprint records in the identification process. Swedish authorities now have access to the records thanks to a new partnership with Morocco, making it easier to identify people who have been given a deportation order then send them to the country, public broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports. The number of deportations carried out to Morocco increased from 75 in 2016 to 135 in 2017. …

    As expected, stars of film and television blacked out the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday. Women and men across the industry wore black in support of the #MeToo movement and gender equality in light of the recent wave of Hollywood sexual harassment allegations. Many on the carpet also wore pins supporting Time’s Up, an initiative recently founded by 300 prominent women in entertainment to fight harassment and abuse in the workplace. The group, led by stars like Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington and America Ferrera, was the one to organize the all-black carpet and took...
  • 'They all knew': Media elites roared at obscene 2008 'roast' sending up Lauer's office sexcapades

    Warning: This article contains graphic language and content. Embattled NBC executives have been falling over themselves insisting they had no idea about Matt Lauer’s pervy past. But if anyone doubts that New York’s media elite was aware of Lauer’s reputation, they should look no further than a top-secret “roast” of Lauer that took place in October 2008. The notorious event -- now legendary in New York media circles -- pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes -- and left little doubt that Lauer’s colleagues knew NBC’s biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye....

    The Steelers will be on the sideline during the national anthem in future games, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and defensive end Cam Heyward said during a news conference Monday. Roethlisberger, via a statement posted on his website, said he has regrets over the Steelers’ decision to wait in the tunnel during the national anthem at Sunday’s game in Chicago, but that the team’s intent was not to protest the song, the flag or the military. Roethlisberger said that he personally believes that protests have no place during the national anthem, but that the idea was to show unity as a team...
  • U.S. says Navy ship fired warning shots at Iranian vessels

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy destroyer fired three warning shots at four Iranian fast-attack vessels after they closed in at a high rate of speed near the Strait of Hormuz, two U.S. defense officials told Reuters on Monday. The incident, which occurred Sunday and was first reported by Reuters, comes as U.S. President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office on Jan. 20. In September, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be "shot out of the water." The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the USS Mahan established radio...

    San Jose Inside ^ | June 3, 2016 | Josh Koehn, Managing Editor
    Perhaps realizing initial statements gave short shrift to the violent episodes outside of Donald Trump’s rally Thursday night at the San Jose Convention Center, both Mayor Sam Liccardo and the San Jose police released additional comments Friday. SJPD initially limited its release of information regarding the violent clashes to noting an officer was assaulted and a “few” people were arrested. Liccardo commended police in his original statement, but seemed to have it both ways in blaming Trump and the people who participated in assaults taking place in the streets following the rally. In an email blast Friday morning, Liccardo came...

    The Department of Homeland Security must move faster to test explosive detectors that can sense compounds that have been used in recent extremist attacks and to determine if the devices can be installed at airports and train stations across the country, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer said. For about eight years, federal officials have funded the development of the electronic trace detection system, which would be capable of continuously monitoring an area for vapor from explosives, including the bomb-making material TATP. But while the technology has proved successful in laboratory tests, it hasn’t been scheduled for government field tests until the...

    In a move that stunned the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, liberal former Vermont governor Howard Dean agreed that the U.S. should now walk away from the nuclear negotiation table with Iran. Talks in Lausanne, Switzerland over the Islamic theocracy’s nuclear program extended past Tuesday night’s deadline, with negotiators stuck on what to do with the uranium already enriched and the time it would take for Iran to convert an approved nuclear energy program into one capable of producing weapons. While these details remain unresolved, Iranian negotiators are still demanding an immediate end to international sanctions on their country. “I...

    It’s not a slowdown — it’s a virtual work stoppage. NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned. The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration. The unprecedented meeting is being held at the new Police...

    The head of the independent U.N. commission on Syrian war crimes said Friday that commanders of the Islamic State extremist group are “good candidates" to be put on a confidential list of alleged perpetrators. Brazilian diplomat and scholar Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said the al-Qaida breakaway group, which now controls a swath of north and eastern Syria, has carried out public executions, crucifixions and other “gross human rights violations.” […] He said the list includes people who are “criminally responsible for hostage-taking, torture and executions;” heads of Syrian intelligence branches and detention facilities where detainees are tortured; military commanders who target...
