Trump says he’s thinking about pulling ICE from California

Featured, Politics
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump declared on Thursday he was considering withdrawing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from California as punishment for what he claimed was a "lousy management job" in patrolling illegal immigration. "You know what, I'm thinking about doing it," Trump said at a roundtable with state and local officials to address ideas to stop gun violence in the wake of the Parkland school massacre. His comments came after he decried the state of law enforcement in the Golden State. "We're getting no help from the state of California. Frankly, if I pulled our people from California, you would have a crime nest like you've never seen in California. All I'd have to do is say 'ICE, Border Patrol, leave California alone,'" he said during a listening ...

CNN Scrambles: Denies ‘Scripted Question,’ Invites Pro-Gun Student to Appear

CNN issued a statement Thursday morning denying that it had asked a shooting survivor to ask a “scripted question” at the CNN Town Hall on guns on Wednesday evening in Sunrise, Florida. On Wednesday evening, junior Colton Haab, a survivor of last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, told local Fort Lauderdale ABC affiliate WPLG that CNN had invited him to appear at the town hall, but he had withdrawn after being asked to recite a “scripted” question. WPLG reported: Haab: I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions. Reporter Janine Stanwood: But Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC, who shielded classmates in the midst of terror, says he did not get to share his experience. Haab: CNN had originall

CNN, Jake Tapper Face Growing Criticism Over ‘Abusive’ Anti-Gun ‘Show Trial’

CNN’s anti-gun town hall event and its left-wing moderator, Jake Tapper, are facing widespread criticism over what many saw as a bullying “show trial.” Tapper is being singled out for much of the criticism from those who say he remained silent as abusive personal attacks were hurled at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch. Incredibly, Tapper also remained silent as his audience booed a rape victim. At the Wednesday night spectacle, those in favor of protecting our Second Amendment civil rights were vastly outnumbered by an audience packed with hostile gun-haters and emotional questioners, including children. According to various reports, the anti-gun participants were given scripted questionscrafted by CNN. The last-place network has denied this by attacking a sc

Jared Kushner’s Security Clearance Issues Roiling White House

The White House said Jared Kushner will not be affected by any policy changes made regarding security clearances, even though he still has an interim security clearance 13 months into the job. “Nothing that has taken place will affect the valuable work that Jared is doing,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said at the White House briefing on Tuesday. Chief of Staff John Kelly last week ordered changes to how the White House manages security clearance investigations, after staffer Rob Porter continued to access top secret material even after claims of domestic abuse by two ex-wives were reported to the FBI. Porter had been working under an interim security clearance, raising scrutiny over the 30 to 40 White House staffers who are also working with interim security clearances, including

Russian stooges? CNN, MSNBC promoted Russia-backed anti-Trump rally

As we and others reported, Friday’s indictment against 13 Russians indicated that pro- and anti-Trump rallies which took place after the 2016 elections were started by Russian trolls seeking to sow discord.  But, Rich Noyes said at Newsbusters, both CNN and MSNBC gave “enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally” on November 12. Noyes observed: “Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was ‘a love rally,’ and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: ‘We reject the President-elect.'” The report adds: While the two liberal anti-Trump networks offered heavy coverage of the anti-Trump rally throughout the day, a check of coverage between noon and 5:00 p.m. Eastern found that the Fox News Channel offered only a short re-cap (66 seconds) at the start of th

The American Conservative Union (ACU) on Monday eveningreleased its agenda for the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a lineup that amounts to perhaps the premiere conservative movement event’s strongest ever, as President Donald Trump’s takeover of the  Republican Party and the movement enters its next phases. ACU chairman Matt Schlapp, executive director Dan Schneider, and communications director Ian Walters sat down with Breitbart News exclusively on Monday night to discuss the event which features robust discussions of major issues facing the movement, the GOP, the country, and the world today. “We feel vindicated,” Schlapp told Breitbart News. “After all of the internal family squabbling in the conservative movement and Republican Party and country generally [ov

What Happened to Washington’s Birthday? Big Business, Labor Unions Lobbied Congress for ‘Presidents Day’

Featured, Politics
Most Americans probably don’t know that the Uniform Monday Holiday Bill that Congress passed and President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law in 1968 is why celebrate Presidents’ Day on the third Monday in February. That legislation changed the longstanding tradition of celebrating two exemplary American presidents’ birthdays on separate days in February — the first president of the United States, George Washington, and the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. The whole saga is documented on the National Archives website and reveals that the official federal Presidents’ Day holiday was the result of lobbying by and the unusual partnership of big business and labor unions. The 2004 National Archive article, written by historian C. L. Arbelbide and titled “By George, it is Washington’s bir

President Trump on Monday followed other Republican leaders in questioning why the Obama administration “failed to act” on the intelligence that Russia’s meddling in U.S. politics began in 2014. “Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election,” Trump tweeted. “So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/965676314576543744 A federal grand jury on Friday indicted 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election. The indictments are part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Trump throughout the weekend often took to Twitter to address the indictment, claiming in three separate tweets that there was "no

Florida school shooting: Gun law changes attract renewed GOP interest

Featured, Politics
The massacre at a Florida high school has revived an all-too-familiar national debate on gun control – but this time, public pressure combined with fresh presidential interest could spur at least some changes in the country's gun laws. Most recently, the White House said President Trump backs efforts to improve the country's background check system. His abrupt involvement could be the nudge for action in a Congress divided on virtually every issue. “We want to make sure that the background check process is fully staffed and that all information gets in,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said Monday on "Fox & Friends," describing the current system as a "patchwork." Trump specifically has taken interest in bipartisan Senate legislation that would bolster the National Instant Criminal

Former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta was asked an embarrassing question about the accusations that Russian interference helped tip the 2016 election to elect President Trump over his opponent. Here’s the video of Podesta’s appearance: https://youtu.be/JOvZeAecOZ4 NN host Nancy Cords interviewed Podesta about the recent indictments from special counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian election intervention and alleged collusion. “How is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?” she asked. “Well, Of course we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those states,” Podesta responded. “Hillary Clinton herself did not spend much time in those states,” Cordes objected. “Y
