Exclusive: Few Rogue Border Agents Resist Trump Policies


By LifeZette, Feb. 17, 2017

Some border patrol stations have been slow to carry out President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement executive order and instead have continued former President Barack Obama’s “catch-and-release” policies, according to a union official.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told LifeZette that he raised concerns Thursday with U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ronald Vitiello. He said he is confident that issue soon will be corrected.

‘California is a nation, not a state’: A fringe movement wants a break from the U.S.


By Washington Post, Feb. 18, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO — About 15 people huddled in a luxury apartment building, munching on danishes as they plotted out their plan to have California secede from the United States.

“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California,” Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California’s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading “California is a nation, not a state.”

Mike Flynn & FBI Investigation: Bureau Had No Basis for It


By National Review, Feb. 18, 2017

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was dismissed amid a torrent of mainstream-media reporting and disgraceful government leaks (but I repeat myself). Among the most intriguing was a New York Times report the morning after Flynn’s resignation, explaining that the former three-star Army general and head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was “grilled” by FBI agents “about a phone call he had had with Russia’s ambassador.”

Hollywood Chooses Protests Over Parties As The Stars Get Ready For Oscars Activism


By The Guardian, Feb. 17, 2017

In a normal Oscars week, Jeremy Zimmer would expect to be wearing his best tux, rubbing shoulders with the biggest stars in Hollywood and grabbing canap├ęs with one hand while holding a glass of champagne in the other. This year he expects to be holding nothing more glamorous than a placard.

Uncle Tom’s Coonery - Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper: Opinion


By Indianapolis Recorder, Feb. 16, 2017

Last week the social media/justice warriors (SMJWs) went after me like a starving sub-Saharan African at a United Nations food drop.

They were mad because I, very sarcastically, gave melanin challenged individuals (white folks) my permission to use the n-word whenever they felt like it. My argument was pretty simple, if a Deputy Mayor of the City of Indianapolis can use racially offensive language to describe Black people and there are no consequences, then there was no reason why they should not be able to spout off whenever they want to and live happily ever after.

When Obama’s National Security Advisor Lied, Media Laughed


By The Federalist, Feb. 17, 2017

Buried deep beneath the Michael Flynn hysteria this week was Judicial Watch’s release of newly obtained State Department documents related to the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. One email confirms—again—that the Obama administration knew the day after the attack it was not a random act of violence stemming from an anti-Muslim video. That was the excuse shamefully propagated by top Obama administration officials (including the president himself) and swallowed whole by a media establishment desperate to help Obama win re-election six weeks later.

Pope Francis: ‘Muslim Terrorism Does Not Exist’


By Breitbart., Feb. 17, 2017 
“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.

'Telephone Terrorism' Has Rattled 48 Jewish Centers. Is Anyone Paying Attention?


By CNN, Feb. 17, 2017

(CNN) - Samantha Taylor was at Orlando's Jewish Community Center for a morning meeting when she heard reports of a bomb threat crackle from the director's walkie-talkie.

Her daughter attends preschool there; she ran to the classroom and evacuated with the students and teachers.
While police and bomb-sniffing dogs searched the building for several hours, the teachers kept the children calm and happy at a safe spot down the street, Taylor said. No explosives were found.

Trump's Pick For Ambassador To Israel Says He Regrets Inflammatory Remarks, Apologizes To ADL


By CBS News, Feb. 17, 2017

WASHINGTON — The combative attorney President Donald Trump picked to be his ambassador to Israel said Thursday that he regrets using “inflammatory rhetoric” during the “highly charged” 2016 presidential campaign.

At his confirmation hearing, David Friedman told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that language he used “has come in for criticism - and rightfully so.” He says his use of incendiary comments is “entirely over.”

Three Ways Republicans Want To Replace Obamacare


By CNN, Feb. 17, 2017

House GOP members met Thursday to hear more from committee leaders about efforts to replace the massive health reform law. In a presentation, Representatives Greg Walden of Oregon and Kevin Brady of Texas explained how the party wants to overhaul America's health care system through the use of tax credits, health savings accounts and changes to Medicaid funding, among other measures.

Congress started the repeal process last month, but the momentum has stalled amid infighting over how to replace Obamacare. Congressional leaders and President Trump, however, have said recently they will be ready to act next month.

Town Hall Meetings: Republicans Fear Confrontation


By NPR, Feb. 17, 2017

Republicans used town-hall meetings in 2009 to help channel outrage at the sitting president and take back Congress the next year. But now that they're in control of Washington, Republican lawmakers are finding they're the ones in the hot seat.

Since the beginning of the year, Republican town halls across the country have turned into raucous affairs, with local constituents showing up and chanting, asking pointed questions and sometimes disrupting events. Members of Congress are steeling themselves for boisterous town halls in the coming months, when they expect continuing confrontations with protesters in their districts angry over President Trump's actions.

11 Times Barack Obama Abused Press Freedom


By Breitbart, Feb. 17, 2017

Perhaps the mainstream media Brahmins have short memories — or selective memories. Because when President Barack Obama took direct aim at the media and press freedom, few complained. And when they did, the media soon went back to giving him fawning coverage.

Here are 11 moments Obama abused the press:

1. Campaign plane “hijacking” journalists. In 2008, the Obama campaign flew 25 members of the media to Chicago — without telling them then-Sen. Obama was not, in fact, on board. CNN reported: “[T]he press was essentially held hostage with no candidate and no choice but to fly to Chicago on a chartered plane.”

ISIS Is Poing Broke


By NY Post, Feb. 17, 2017

The Islamic State group is hemorrhaging money with every piece of territory it loses, according to a new analysis that found that the group’s “business model” is on the path to failure.

The analysis released Saturday by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence and the accounting firm EY found that the self-proclaimed caliphate’s financial resources have been drained substantially since the days beginning in mid-2014 when it captured banks, oil wells and entire warehouses of weapons as it amassed land.
