  • Obama’s ICE Didn’t Follow Procedure For Checking Illegal Immigrants’ Ties to Terrorism

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 16, 2018 | by Elizabeth Harrington
    During the Obama administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement was not following proper procedures when checking if illegal aliens were known terrorists, jeopardizing national security, according to an audit. The office of inspector general found that between 2013 and 2015, ICE was not screening illegal immigrants who had been released for terrorist ties. Every single case of a suspected terrorist reviewed by the inspector general included errors. "ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) faces challenges in implementing the Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounter Protocol (KSTEP) screening process, which is used to identify aliens who may be known or suspected terrorists," the...
  • The Southern Poverty Law Center Scam

    There are dangerous hate groups in America. So a group called the Southern Poverty Law Center promises to warn us about them. They release an annual list of hate groups in America. The media cover it, but John Stossel says they shouldn't. It's a scam. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who grew up Muslim in Somalia and suffered female genital mutilation — as an "anti-Muslim extremist." Just because she now speaks out against radical Islam. They also list the conservative Family Research Council as a "hate group." That listing led a man to go to...
  • Sarah Sanders: Donald Trump ‘Not Going to Apologize’ After ‘Shithole Countries’ Comment

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that President Donald Trump would not apologize after his reported comment about not accepting immigrants from “shithole countries.” “The president hasn’t said he didn’t use strong language, and this is an important issue. He’s passionate about it. He’s not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system,” Sanders said in a brief conversation with reporters outside of the White House. The Associated Press, CNN, and CBS News detailed Sanders’ response to the ongoing controversy over the president’s comment. On Friday, Trump said that the reported comment was “not the language...
  • Editorial: UC Berkeley fails to support undocumented student Luis Mora in time of need

    The Daily Californian (Student Paper) ^ | January 16, 2018 | Editorial Board
    The UC Berkeley administration’s reaction to undocumented junior Luis Mora’s detainment by Border Patrol proves that the campus doesn’t give undocumented students the support they need. Within days of Mora’s detainment on Dec. 30 in San Diego, campus immigrant rights organization Rising Immigrant Scholars through Education, or RISE at Berkeley, launched a massive social media campaign to call for Mora’s release. Now is the time for public action, and the UC Berkeley administration — which has repeatedly expressed support for the undocumented community — should proudly lead the charge. Mora’s detainment isn’t an isolated incident; under President Donald Trump’s administration,...
  • Ex-Planned Parenthood Director: ‘My Goal Is to Make Abortion Unthinkable’

    A former Planned Parenthood health center director says her main goal is not to make abortion illegal or even to defund Planned Parenthood, but, instead to make the entire idea of abortion “unthinkable.” Abby Johnson, now a national pro-life leader, tells Breitbart News that, as the March for Life approaches Friday, it is understandable many pro-life activists are focused on eliminating taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. “But, if I’m totally honest, my main goal is not to defund Planned Parenthood,” Johnson said during an interview. “My main goal is not even to make abortion illegal. My goal is to make...

    There could be no starker illustration of the profound differences that exist between Washington and London -- despite alignment on many other issues -- than comments this week by our two leaders on climate change and the environment. For President Trump, the Paris Agreement is a bad deal that will close US businesses -- perhaps even has closed some already. Meanwhile, in London last week, Prime Minister Theresa May was launching the UK's 25-year Plan for Nature. Its flagship pledge is to "leave the environment in a better state than we found it". The evidence is entirely against the world...

    California is poised to meet its goal to reduce greenhouse gases 33 percent, to 1990 levels, by the year 2020. Its targets for use of more renewable energy by that date are, in some cases, already exceeded. ...hold on tight for what comes next. The state’s overarching plan was intended to ease industry and consumers into a carbon-free future bit by bit; ten years in, the training wheels are off. Emissions-reduction must hit 40 percent by 2030 and twice that by 2050. In 12 years, half the state’s energy must come from renewable sources. 14 million buildings must operate twice...

    Video The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 26,000 point milestone at the opening bell on Tuesday. The Dow made the latest 1,000 point milestone move in a record-setting seven sessions, breaking the previous record of moving 1,000 points in 23 sessions. That record was set when the Dow moved from 24,000 to 25,000. "Investors smell profit, more and more from American corporations. And that's the bedrock for stock prices," Stuart Varney said on "Fox & Friends."

    Typically, the Black Star Group, a black Muslim front group, is busy blaming whites for black children failing in schools, but now they’ve added economic segregation. In the Jan. 8, 2018, issue of the San Francisco-based newspaper BayView, the group’s founder, Phillip Jackson, wrote a commentary titled: “Celebrate Black History Month By circulating black dollars in black communities.” The reason for his jeremiad is his opinion that “Black people are on [their] own”; i.e., the white government won’t help them. I say, if only that were the truth. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on blacks since President Nixon...

    Two op-eds in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal and one on this website brilliantly call attention to aspects of the vast political and cultural change, still in its early stages, that is gathering force in this country as inexorably as the spring thaw breaks up a frozen river, first as a trickle and then a torrent. Donald Trump figures in all three stories. He is at once a cause and an effect of the change—the Tea Party movement embodied and in power, and as much a rejection of the existing order of things as the mob that swarmed onto British...

    OKLAHOMA COUNTY - Work is set to begin next week on a controversial, new turnpike that will carve a path through eastern Oklahoma County. The Eastern Oklahoma County Turnpike will connect I-40 to the Turner Turnpike, traveling roughly along Luther Road. Since the project was first announced almost two and a half years ago, it has drawn protests from many in the area who are set to lose their homes and land. “Even to this day, we don’t have a size or an actual line or layout for sure of what they even want,” said Joe Krecke. What Krecke does...

    DETROIT — His arms wrapped around his wife and two teenage children, Jorge Garcia's eyes welled up Monday as he looked into their eyes one last time near the entrance to the airport security gate. His wife, Cindy Garcia, cried out while his daughter, Soleil, 15, sobbed into Garcia's shoulder as they hugged, with two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents keeping a close eye on them. After 30 years of living in the United States, Jorge Garcia, a 39-year-old landscaper from Lincoln Park, Mich., was deported on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to Mexico, a move his supporters...

    Trump is commonsensically undoing, piece by piece, the main components of Obama’s legacy.onald Trump continues to baffle. Never Trump Republicans still struggle to square the circle of quietly agreeing so far with most of his policies, as they loudly insist that his record is already nullified by its supposedly odious author. Or surely it soon will be discredited by the next Trumpian outrage. Or his successes belong to congressional and Cabinet members, while his failures are all his own. Rarely do they seriously reflect on what otherwise over the last year might have been the trajectory of a Clinton administration....

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    The progressive billionaire speculator George Soros has said he will ‘fight back’ against the “dominant ideology” of nationalism, whilst admitting that favoured globalist project the European Union is “on the verge of a breakdown”. Wistfully writing that Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) once ‘epitomised the optimism about the spread of Western-style democracy’ after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Financial Times described the scrutiny the global progressive body is experiencing amidst a wave of patriotism and populism and the ‘wilting’ attraction of the leftist agenda. Soros, alluding to the collapse of the USSR, told the left-liberal newspaper: “It’s déjà...
