    U.S. Immigration and Customs and Border Protection agents teamed up to return more than 1,000 Mexican migrants 'deep' into their country’s 'interior' under a new Trump Administration program..... Under previous agreements, Mexican nationals were simply returned to across the border–making it easy to simply re-cross elsewhere.... By returning these individuals into the interior of Mexico, they will be much less likely to attempt a dangerous and potentially deadly journey north....This framework will reduce recidivism and border violence by returning Mexican nationals closer to their cities of origin,

    Two states, Iowa and New Hampshire, have taken part in the 2020 Democratic nomination process. The Iowa Democratic caucuses were a debacle. The technology didn't work; the results had to be re-tallied; and with the delay, the final results didn't mean as much as they could have to any specific candidate. The process also left the Democratic Party's reputation damaged. New Hampshire ended with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont (26%) edging out former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (24%). Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota outperformed expectations (20%), while Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts came in unexpectedly low (9.3%). Former...

    The Hill ^ | February 12, 2020 | John Bowden
    A majority of Americans in a new poll say they are better off now than they were three years ago. Just over six in ten Americans, 61 percent, told Gallup pollsters that they are decidedly in better shape than they were shortly after President Trump took office in 2017, a sign of a recovering U.S. economy. A little more than a third, 36 percent, said they are definitely not better off than they were in early 2017, while just 3 percent said their prospects remain the same. In early 2012, months before former President Obama won reelection over now-Sen. Mitt...

    When the history of the Trump Administration is written, the week just past will be remembered as the week in which the tide of history turned, not just in favor of President Donald Trump, but in favor of the American people and the American Republic as well. The forces of globalism are in retreat and tatters all over the developed world, and nowhere is that more clear than here in the United States, thanks to Mr. Trump’s endurance and leadership. Let’s take a look at the events that have taken place since last Saturday, February 1, 2020: Brexit becomes official....

    A 35-year-old Washington, D.C., man visited an urgent care clinic on Jan. 19, a few days after returning from Wuhan, China. After undergoing testing, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determined that he had contracted the 2019-nCoV coronavirus—the first such case in the United States. Since surfacing in Wuhan in December, the 2019-nCoV coronavirus has spread to nearly 30 countries, killing 565 and infecting more than 28,000 worldwide. As of this writing, 12 cases have been confirmed in the U.S. Note that these numbers are changing almost every hour. As cases began to emerge within American borders, the Trump...
  • The US Navy Quietly Shut Down its Task Force on Climate Change

    02/08/2020 1:15:16 PM PST · by Enlightened1 · 38 replies
    What happened: The US Navy has dismantled its Task Force on Climate Change, which was designed to use the best available science to prepare naval leadership for global shifts in sea levels, melting ice sheets and ocean temperatures. The task force was shut down in March 2019 without a public announcement and climate change science and information has been scrubbed from the Department’s website. According to a Navy spokesperson the task force was “duplicative” and no longer needed, though the task force’s work has not been fully incorporated into the Navy’s decisionmaking process.Why it matters: The task force was designed to provide...

    Make no mistake about: President Trump has had a great week, and the Democrats had a lousy one. Not even the liberal media denies it. "Donald Trump is having a week that's frustrating a lot of Democrats," CNN's Jake Tapper conceded as early as Tuesday. And he wasn't the only one who noticed. "Democrats are reduced to hoping the president's luck finally runs out," wrote The Week' s Damon Linker. "It’s been a pretty good week for Donald Trump," wrote David Graham of The Atlantic. "In fact, it’s hard to think of a better week in the Trump administration." "Republicans...

    Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who testified in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, was “escorted out of the White House.” A federal appeals court dismissed one of several lawsuits against President Trump alleging he violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution by illegally profiting from his presidency.

    President Trump and his aides wasted little time opening a campaign of retribution against those he blames for his impeachment, firing on Friday two of the most prominent witnesses in the inquiry against him barely 48 hours after the Senate acquitted the president. Emboldened by his victory and determined to strike back, Mr. Trump fired Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union, within hours of the White House dismissing Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a decorated Iraq war veteran who was a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council. Both officials testified to a House committee about the...
  • Americans Joining Workforce at Record Rate. Nearly three of four Americans who became newly employed in recent months came from outside the labor force

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 7, 2020 | Eric Morath
    A tight U.S. labor market is drawing Americans off the sidelines at a record rate. Nearly three of four Americans who became newly employed in recent months came from outside the labor force—meaning they weren’t actively looking for work prior to the month they accepted a job. That is the highest ratio in three decades of records and helps explain how employers have consistently added jobs without stoking stronger wage growth. The unemployment rate, 3.6% in January according to the Labor Department, is trending near a 50-year low. That leaves employers with a shallow pool of candidates actively searching for...

    WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court on Friday threw out a lawsuit brought by Democratic lawmakers that accused Donald Trump of violating anti-corruption provisions in the U.S. Constitution with his business dealings, capping a week of political victories for the Republican president. A unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the more than 210 House of Representatives and Senate Democrats lacked the required legal standing to bring the case, reversing a lower court judge’s decision that had allowed the case to proceed. The ruling came during a week of positives...

    A federal appeals court on Friday unanimously ruled that more than 200 Democratic congressional lawmakers do not have standing to sue President Trump over allegations he violated the Emoluments Clause over foreign payments to his businesses. “Because we conclude that the Members lack standing, we reverse the district court and remand with instructions to dismiss their complaint,” the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said in its ruling.
  • How Trump Wins Again. Are Democrats going to give this election away?

    New York Times ^ | February 6, 2020 | David Brooks
    As several people have noticed, this was the most politically successful week of the Trump presidency. First, President Trump’s job approval numbers are rising. When the impeachment inquiry got rolling in October his Gallup approval rating was 39. Now it’s 49. If he can hold this level, he’ll probably be re-elected. Second, impeachment never became a topic of conversation among rank-and-file Democrats, let alone independents and Republicans, so it was easily defeated in the Senate. To the extent that it was noticed, impeachment worked for Republicans and against Democrats. Approval of the Republican Party is now at 51 percent, its...

    The New York Times reported Friday morning that African American workers are seeing their wages rise for the first time after a “decade of stagnation,” further evidence of the strength of the U.S. economy. The Times report came as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy created 225,000 new jobs in January, smashing expectations. Unemployment ticked upward to 3.6% — but that was due to more workers entering the labor force, generating the highest labor force participation rate thus far in the recovery from the Great Recession. Average hourly wage gains also rose slightly year-on-year, to 3.1%....

    As Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech page by page, she put the finishing touches on one of the greatest political rehab jobs of all time. The Democrats have managed to turn Trump into a thoroughly sympathetic figure. From the start, Trump has not been treated like a normal president by people on either end of the political spectrum. On the left, Trump is viewed as a fascist, un-American monster, thoroughly unprepared for and undeserving of the highest office in our land. They never accepted his election and never gave him a...
  • Trump says U.S. operation killed al-Qaida leader in Yemen

    President Donald Trump said Thursday that the U.S. at his direction has conducted a counter-terrorism operation in Yemen that killed Qassim al-Rimi, an al-Qaida leader who claimed responsibility for last year's deadly shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where a Saudi aviation trainee killed three American sailors. Al-Rimi is a founder of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. The affiliate has long been considered the global network’s most dangerous branch for its attempts to carry out attacks on the U.S. mainland. Trump said the U.S. and its allies are safer as a result of his death. “We will continue to protect...

    WASHINGTON -- Former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh ended his Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump on Friday, abandoning an effort that faced long odds and financial struggles from the start. “I’m suspending my campaign, but our fight against the Cult of Trump is just getting started. I’m committed to doing everything I can to defeat Trump and his enablers this November.” Walsh said in a tweet. Walsh had cast his ballot for Trump in 2016 and declared he would be “grabbing his musket” if the Republican Trump lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton. But Walsh eventually soured on Trump, deriding...

    President Trump proudly displayed two newspapers with blaring “Acquitted” headlines Thursday morning, waving them before a National Prayer Breakfast audience in his first appearance since he was declared not guilty in his Senate impeachment trial. The president brandished the headlines mere feet from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after both arrived at the breakfast.
