FDA: Romaine lettuce from California 'likely' to blame for E.coli outbreak

The Food and Drug Administration said Friday that efforts are underway to remove romaine lettuce from California from the supply chain, as they believe an E.coli outbreak likely originated from the Golden State.

In a series of tweets, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said the goal afterwards is to restock the market with untainted produce from different growing regions.

"UPDATE ON OUTBREAK: The romaine implicated in the current outbreak is likely from California based on growing and harvesting patterns," t said. "The goal now is to withdraw the product that’s at risk of being contaminated from the market, and then re-stock the market."


New Gingrich: The far-left is funding 'war' at southern border

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Monday there is a “war” at the southern border being funded by the far left.

“This war on the border is real,” Gingrich told Fox News. “And what people are trying to do is a psychological war, very often guided, by the way, by American leftists who are activists and American left-wing organizations who are helping finance it.”

Gingrich, who was House speaker from 1995 to 1999, said that the Left’s goal in mobilizing the Central American caravan was to embarrass the U.S. by making it seem as though the government cannot control its border.


French Historian: Multicultural Society Will Lead to a Multi-Conflict Society

Says Islamists have declared “war” on the west

Award-winning French historian Georges Bensoussan warns that multicultural societies will lead to multi-conflict societies and that Islam is incompatible with the Enlightenment ideals of western civilization.

In an interview with, Bensoussan, author of the Lost Territories of the Republic, warns that France’s crumbling national identity, exacerbated by guilt over its colonial past, will lead to violence.

“A multicultural society (not to be confused with a multi-ethnic society)” will become “increasingly synonymous with multi-conflict society” according to Bensoussan, who says that France “dismisses its own history and mortifies itself endlessly”.

He added that there are over 500 “problematic” no-go zone neighborhood where Salafist Islam is taking over and becoming increasingly impervious to law enforcement

Bensoussan says “a war has been declared (on) us” by Islamists and failure to understand this will leave European countries completely “helpless”.

Save a small engine, reform the Renewable Fuel Standard

Recently, the White House directed the Environmental Protection Agency to begin permitting year-round sale of E15 fuel, which is a blend containing 15 percent ethanol by volume. The trouble with this rule change is that, unless it is coupled with major reforms to the federal Renewable Fuel Standard, American consumers will suffer both financially and environmentally.

E15 is unhealthy for the engines that power motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats, lawn mowers, and powered equipment, not to mention cars manufactured in 2000 and earlier. None of the estimated 22 million motorcycles and ATVs currently in operation is approved by the EPA to use E15.

Using E15 in engines not designed for it can result in motor and fuel system damage and jeopardize manufacturers' warranties.


Trump Warns: 'We Will Close The Border Permanently'

Says To Mexico: Send Migrants Back "Anyway You Want"

After chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday forced U.S. authorities to fire tear gas into a violent crowd of angry migrants seeking to enter the United States, President Trump on Monday warned that "we will close the Border permanently if need be."

The president also said that many of the so-called migrants now gathered at the U.S.-Mexico border are "stone cold criminals" and urged Mexico to send them back to their homes "anyway you want."


Trump "Not Happy" About GM News, Tells Company To Stop Making Cars In China

Following news of GM's mass layoffs affecting over 14,000 workers and widespread plant shutterings in the US and abroad, it was only a matter of time before President Trump chimed in with many expecting that today's news that the icon of US business is not doing well would prompt a less than excited response from Trump. That's precisely what happened moments ago when Trump, speaking to reporters as he was leaving the White House, said he "wasn't happy" about the General Motors news, noting that the country has done a lot for GM.

Trump, who said he spoke with CEO Mary Barra on Sunday night according to the WSJ, and said that he does not like's GM's decision on North American auto production, said that GM needs to find a replacement for the Chevy Cruze, which isn’t selling, and said he expects that GM will put something else in Ohio. "We have a lot of pressure on them,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for Mississippi.

Trump also said that he told GM to stop making cars in China, and that he told GM "they better get back in there soon."


GM killing off Chevy Volt, Cruze, Impala and Buick LaCrosse cars

Cars to end production in 2019

General Motors said it will cut more than 10,000 salaried staff and factory workers and close five factories in North America by the end of next year, part of a sweeping realignment to prepare for a future with a greater number of purely electric vehicles.

Four factories in the U.S. and one in Canada, in Oshawa, Ontario, could be shuttered by the end of 2019 if the automaker and its unions don’t come up with an agreement to allocate more work to those facilities, GM said in a statement Monday.

Along with two other factory closures outside North America, the company is jettisoning some of its slower-selling sedans. Specifically, GM said the company will cut the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac CT6 sedans next year.

Trump Lashes Out at Mueller's 'Conflicts of Interests'

President Donald Trump sent out two tweets Monday morning attacking special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections on his first day back at work at the White House following his Thanksgiving vacation in Florida.

"When Mueller does his final report, will he be covering all of his conflicts of interest in a preamble, will he be recommending action on all of the crimes of many kinds from those 'on the other side' (whatever happened to Podesta?), and will he be putting in statements from. . .


"I'm Not Going To Agree That I Lied": Corsi Rejects Mueller's Plea Deal, Plans To Sue

Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi said on Monday that he is refusing to sign a plea deal offered by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Corsi, who fell under suspicion as an intermediary between Stone and WikiLeaks during the 2016 US election, said he was offered a deal to plea on one count of perjury. According to the New York Times, Mueller presented Corsi with evidence that he had lied when investigators asked him beforehand if WikiLeaks was going to publish stolen DNC emails during the campaign, while Corsi ostensibly served as the conduit.

Among other issues, investigators have been asking about an Aug. 21, 2016, Twitter message in which Mr. Stone predicted that John D. Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman, would soon face his “time in the barrel.” Mr. Stone posted his message six weeks before WikiLeaks began releasing tens of thousands of Mr. Podesta’s emails, throwing the Clinton campaign on the defensive a month before the November election. -NYT

"Having reviewed my records, I am now confident that I am the source behind Stone’s tweet," Corsi wrote in an early 2017 article on Infowars.

While Corsi told the Times two weeks ago that he had told investigators the truth, the special counsel's office "has decided that his text messages and emails contradict some of his statements" concerning the WikiLeaks release, according to people familiar with those discussions.

The 72-year-old Corsi says it's BS;

"They want me to say I willfully lied. I’m not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life. I’d rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to," Corsi said.

Corsi tells me he’s been offered plea deal on one count of perjury. “They want me to say I willfully lied. I’m not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life. I’d rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to.”— Anna Schecter (@annaschecter) November 26, 2018


Marc A. Thiessen: Chief Justice Roberts Is Wrong. We Do Have Obama Judges and Trump Judges.

WASHINGTON — For someone trying to demonstrate that the judiciary is not political, getting into a political fight with the president sure is a funny way to do it.

After President Trump called a judge who ruled against him an “Obama judge,” Chief Justice John Roberts issued an extraordinary public rebuke of the president, declaring in statement “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” Roberts was not only wrong to speak out, but also his claim that there are no Obama judges or Trump judges was wrong.

If we do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, then why did Senate Republicans block President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia in the final year of Obama’s term? And why did Democrats filibuster Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, to fill Scalia’s seat?


Is The Deep State Feeling The Heat?

Bad as it may have been, the worst of the Russia Hoax was not the abuse of the FISA electronic surveillance regime for political purposes. Nor is the worst even the patent involvement of our intelligence agencies -- and in particular the FBI and CIA -- in electoral politics. No, the worst aspect of the Russia Hoax is that our intelligence agencies, including elements of DoJ and the State Department cooperating with the Clinton campaign, enlisted the intelligence services of foreign powers -- first in their effort to defeat the candidacy of Donald Trump and, when that effort failed, turning their efforts to what can only be described as an attempted coup against the elected President of the United States.

Shockingly, these later stages of the Russia Hoax have included members of the Legislative Branch who, in the face of clear evidence that the true collusion with foreign powers was that of the Clinton campaign, have worked to delay and to ultimately obstruct Congressional oversight and investigation of the entire Russia Hoax.

So, faced with this determined stonewalling of Congressional oversight by DoJ and the FBI, the President played what has always been his trump card: he ordered the declassification of most of the documents that are central to the Russia Hoax. Led by DAG Rosenstein, the forces of the Deep State were able to delay the release of the documents, but President Trump made it clear that he favors declassification -- and sooner, rather than later.


Study Finds Football Affects Youth Brain Development After Just One Season

Just one season of football resulted in signs of damage to brain development for those youth players who have frequent impacts to the head, according to a study, CNN reported on Monday.

"Repetitive head impact exposure may have a cumulative effect in the rapidly developing brains of youth and high school football players," said study co-author Gowtham Krishnan Murugesan.

The study provided 60 football players between the ages of 9 and 18 who had no history of head trauma or developmental issues with a telemetry system that measures impacts to the head.

The players were put into two categories - those with high cumulative head impacts and those with low cumulative ones.


Democrats Highlight Kamala Harris’s Race As Her Removal From The Senate Judiciary Committee Appears Likely

Liberals are preparing for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s possible expulsion from the Senate Judiciary Committee by highlighting she is a black woman.

In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red. Consequently, Harris, the most junior Democratic member of the committee, will likely be squeezed out.

“Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African American woman from the committee, but Senator Harris also is the most skilled questioner on the entire panel,” Brian Fallon, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, said according to The Washington Post. “Whatever options they need to consider, removing Harris should not be one of them.”


Franklin Graham: I Back Trump Because He Defends Christian Faith

Evangelical leader Franklin Graham told "Axios on HBO" over the weekend that he supports President Donald Trump because he defends the Christian faith.

"Now people say \, 'Well Frank but how can you defend him, when he's lived such a sordid life?',” Graham said. “I never said he was the best example of the Christian faith. He defends the faith. And I appreciate that very much."

Regarding the president’s treatment of women, Graham, the son of the late Billy Graham and the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said "Trump has admitted his faults and has apologized to his wife and his daughter for things he has done and said. And he has to stand before God for those things."


Illegal Kills 6th Grade Teacher in Thanksgiving Day Hit-and-Run

American family observes tragic Thanksgiving due to illegal alien

A family in West Texas suffered their worst Thanksgiving ever after an illegal immigrant slammed into their daughter, leaving her dead at the scene.

The incident happened on Thanksgiving morning around 2AM in El Paso.

Sixth-grade teacher Mandy Ferguson Weyant, 28, was using a crosswalk at the corner of Cincinnati and Mesa Street when 24-year-old Joel Velazquez ran a red light.

“That’s when he hit Amanda ‘Mandy’ Ferguson Weyant, who was in the crosswalk, and took off. Police later found his vehicle abandoned on Cincinnati,” reports


Democratic donors plot to punish Kirsten Gillibrand for holding Al Franken accountable for his sins

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., has flipped her position on issues before, yet for the one thing she remained admirably principled on — the seriousness of sexual assault — the Democratic donor class reportedly plans on punishing her.

Yes, Gillibrand is going to be punished for the crime of leading the charge to oust sexual predator Al Franken from the Senate.

In case you need a recap of the bevy of evidence that on multiple occasions, Franken made aggressive, unwanted physical advances and even attacks on more than half a dozen women we know of, let me forward you to David Freddoso's exhaustive review from this weekend. If you still find Franken's behavior, evidence and all, excusable, then I suggest you close out of this page now.


Lindsey Graham Invokes Kavanaugh, Rallies Support With Trump As Mississippi Prepares For Runoff

President Donald Trump brought South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on stage during his rally in Tupelo, Mississippi on Monday night for Republican Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Trump said, “I brought a star along, you know he became an even bigger star during that horrible situation with Brett Kavanaugh. He gave probably 100 words and they’ll go down, I mean you’ll be playing those words for a long time and they were very special.”


County Executive Bob Culver announces Good News from Planning and Zoning

During the month of October 2018, fifty-five building permits with an estimated construction cost $5.2 million were issued by the Department of Planning and Zoning. This included a permit to construct a 2.6 megawatt solar array on 103 South Street, near Hebron, with estimated cost of $2.6 million. In addition, six permits with an estimated total cost of $1.2 million were issued for construction of new single-family dwellings. The average of the six new construction projects is approximately $200,000.00 each.

Morris Mill Dam Upgrade Halted Temporarily

Work on the Morris Mill Dam is temporarily on hold due to encountering unexpected soil conditions. The construction plans are being revised to address the issues but they must be approved by the Maryland Department of Environment's Office of Dam Safety before construction can resume. Morris Mill Dam is classified as a high hazard dam and safety is first and foremost. Every precaution is being taken to keep the community safe during construction.

Work is expected to resume by the end of December. Public Works appreciates the public's patience with this project as all necessary steps are taken to ensure the final product is a safe, stable, and updated dam.

"The Federals Are Coming!"

Americans were taught about Paul Revere’s ride in school. He was said to have ridden from his home in the North End of Boston, to Lexington and Concord, to warn the people there that Federal troops had landed in Boston Harbour and would soon reach the townships.

Of course, the story was tarted up a bit for the history books. First, it’s unlikely that he shouted, “The British are coming,” since, at the time of the ride, in 1775, he was in fact British - a British colonial - and would have regarded himself as British, as would the townspeople.

It’s also unlikely that he galloped through the towns shouting, “To arms! To arms!” since a major portion of the British colonists, particular those who were older and had a lot to lose, were loyalists, and taking up arms would be treasonous. (At that time, treason was one of only two capital crimes.)

So, what did he shout on his ride… or did he in fact shout anything? It’s more likely that he simply went to the back doors of select sympathisers and asked them to spread the word that the Federal troops were on the way. But, of course, that would have made for a far less colourful story.

It is likely, though, that the ride itself did actually take place and that he did succeed in rousing the townspeople. Amongst them were the minutemen, who later did quite a good job of picking off the Federal troops.

At that time, this practice was looked upon by armies as cowardly. It was considered honourable for columns of troops to march toward each other and fire. Those with the most troops to sacrifice usually won. The colonists could not have prevailed, had they followed this method of battle.

But the colonists’ cause was a laudable one, even if they were far outnumbered and not as well-trained or well-armed as the Federals. Under the circumstances, they succeeded because they swallowed their pride, used their wits and, fighting guerilla style, prevailed against a greater opponent.

In creating the United States, the founding fathers of the US endorsed the concept of a republic – a conglomerate of states in which the individual right was tantamount. They were deeply suspicious of sliding into becoming a democracy. As Thomas Jefferson said,

“Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.”


Democrat Kamala Harris could lose seat on Senate Judiciary Committee, report says

Reducing the size of the 21-member Senate Judiciary Committee is reportedly among the actions being considered by Senate Republicans as they prepare for the next Congress.

If that happens, Sen. Kamala Harris of California -- a high-profile Democrat who is considered a possible candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination -- could be left off the panel, according to a report.

That’s because the first-term senator is the judiciary committee’s most junior member, and would be among the first to go if the panel is downsized, the Washington Post reported.

But some Democrats are reportedly scrambling to find a way to keep Harris on the committee, the report said. The ideas include negotiating with Republicans -- who maintained control of the chamber after this month's midterm elections -- to keep the committee at 21 members, or convincing a more senior Democrat to step aside.

Although she has been a U.S. senator for less than two years, Harris – a former state attorney general in California – drew attention during the summer for her questioning of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.


Thousands of Additional Migrants Headed to U.S. Border

Thousands of additional migrants are expected to arrive in Tijuana, Mexico, to try to claim asylum at the U.S. border. The incoming migrants are in addition to the approximately 5,000 migrants who already arrived in this border city during recent days.

Jean Guerrero from KPBS first reported on the expected migrant arrivals after she spoke to a group who had just made their way to Tijuana, Baja California.

The new migrants appear to be from a group of 200 who, according to Frontera.Info, arrived at the border city after having been stranded for days in Mexicali. The Mexican news site reported that the group was primarily made up of young adult males. The migrants said they felt betrayed by their compatriots who had told them that they would be allowed to enter the U.S and request asylum.

The arrival of the new caravan comes just hours after a group of migrants tried to rush the U.S. border at the San Ysidro port of entry. As Breitbart News reported, the effort forced U.S. Customs and Border Protection to shut down the port of entry and establish barricades with federal officers in riot gear. U.S. Customs and Border Protection tweeted that Border Patrol agents were forced to fire tear gas into the crowds as some of the migrants threw rocks.

GM Closing Five Plants in North America

The turn of the American consumer away from cars in favor of SUVs and trucks has prompted General Motors to announce that it will shutter plants in Michigan, Ohio, Maryland, and Ontario next year.

The company said Monday that it will stop production at five plants next year. The affected plants are Detroit-Hamtramck and Warren Transmission in Michigan, Lordstown Assembly in Ohio, Oshawa Assembly in Ontario, Canada, and Baltimore Operations in Maryland.

The closures will affect some 3,300 workers in the U.S., and another 3,000 globally.

In corporate-speak, these plants will become “unallocated.” That means they will have no product to produce.

The affected plants and the vehicles they make are:

Corsi: 'I Will Not Lie'

Conservative writer Dr. Jerome Corsi, an associate of Roger Stone, has been offered a plea deal in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia collusion, according to several news outlets, but he is swearing that he will not accept it.

"Corsi tells me he’s been offered plea deal on one count of perjury," NBC News Senior Producer Anna Schecter tweeted Monday, quoting him as telling her "'They want me to say I willfully lied. I’m not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life. I’d rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to.'"

Corsi also told CNN Monday that he will not accept a plea deal, commenting during a telephone interview that "They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie."

He also said he does not know what will happen if he refuses the deal.

Corsi also confirmed to CNN that he's been offered a deal to plead guilty to one count of perjury.


Hilton: Trump is fighting the elitist enemy within his own White House

Over the Thanksgiving break, I read Bob Woodward’s “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

When it came out in September the snooty elitists on the East Coast salivated over its juicy gossip: “Trump watches TV a lot!" and the story it told of a president they see as an ignorant, dangerous barbarian.

Here are a few of the condescending highlights…

From Judy Woodruff, PBS: “It is a stunning look inside the Trump presidency, exposing a chaotic White House led by a man who has said he believes the key to power is fear.”

From Jamie Gangel, CNN: “I think what Woodward has presented here is a devastating portrait, Brooke. We’ve heard about chaos, we've heard about dysfunction, but the details of this book are like nothing we've heard before...’

From Mika Brzezinski, co-host, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,”: “All the anecdotes certainly ring true to the man we know and the man who never evolved or stepped up when he won the presidency”…

The East Coast elite held up this book as evidence of why Donald Trump is not fit to be president. Well, either they haven't read the book, or they're deliberately distorting what's in it....

What Bob Woodward has actually done is write a book in praise of President Trump.

Former Acting ICE Director Homan: Caravan Migrants Not 'True Asylum Seekers'

The migrant caravan at the U.S.-Mexico border consists of mostly men who are not "true asylum seekers," former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said Monday, adding that he agrees with President Donald Trump's threat to shut down the border if Mexico doesn't deport the migrants back to their home countries.

"We've got to look at the facts here. A minority of this caravan -- a small minority -- is actually family members, women and children," Homan told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

"Most of them are adult males."

He also accused people who are coordinating the caravan of intentionally displaying women and children to "pull the heartstrings of America," and said the media is playing along.

"This is a vast majority of males seeking employment in the United States, not women and children," said Homan.


Violent Migrant Border Incident Exact Replay of 2013

Five years almost to the day before President Donald Trump’s border officers blocked migrants with tear gas, authorities under President Barack Obama used identical tactics along the same stretch of border near the San Ysidro Port of Entry, according to 2013 press accounts.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported November 25, 2o13:

The incident occurred about a quarter-mile west of the San Ysidro border crossing in the Tijuana River channel. No one was seriously injured, no shots were fired and no arrests were made, said Mary Beth Caston, a Border Patrol spokeswoman.

The group first approached a lone agent stationed about 1/8 of a mile north of the border. They ignored his commands to stop, so he fired pepper balls to try to stop them and protect himself, Caston said.

As the crowd kept advancing and throwing rocks and bottles, she said, more agents came to the scene and used other “intermediate use-of-force devices” to push back the group. The agents also contacted Mexican law enforcement.


More adenovirus cases revealed by University of Maryland following freshman's death

Three more students at the University of Maryland have become sickened by the Adenovirus — less than a week after the school announced one student's death from a deadly strain of the virus.

The university health center's director, David McBride, said none of the new cases required hospitalization, according to Fox 45.

"Please remember that Adenoviruses are common causes of colds and are normally found in significant numbers of people at this time of year," he said. "There are strains that can cause more serious illness, but not every individual with an Adenovirus infection will follow a complicated course."

Olivia Paregol, an 18-year-old freshman at the school, died on Nov. 18 after suffering from the type 7 strain of the adenovirus. From Howard County, Maryland, Paregol died less than three weeks after the school learned she had the illness.

As the school's health center announced her death last Tuesday, officials revealed an additional five students had been diagnosed with the virus, too, after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed one of the specimens they sent to their lab was type 7 of the illness.

Watch What Happens When A Baby That Is Addicted To A Cellphone Has It Taken Away

You have got to watch this video! I have to admit that I was mesmerized when I first starting watching it. This baby appears to be less than a year old, and yet it already throws a massive temper tantrum every time a cellphone is taken away.

But as you will see in the video, all the mother has to do to stop the tantrum is to give the cellphone back to the baby.

If you need a good laugh, this video is perfect for you, but I think that it also contains a much deeper message.

You see, the truth is that our society is just like that little baby. We have become deeply, deeply addicted to the digital world that we have created, and when we are forced to disconnect from that world most of us don’t respond very well.

Many of us are old enough to remember a time when people didn’t carry cellphones around with them everywhere. Instead of constantly looking down at their phones, people actually tried to interact with one another, and the world was a much different place.

But today it seems like everyone has a cellphone, and one study found that the average American spends 86 hours a month on their phone…

According to comScore’s 2017 Cross Platform Future in Focusreport, the average American adult (18+) spends 2 hours, 51 minutes on their smartphone every day.

That’s about 86 hours a month! This might be a record, but growth has certainly flattened out over the last year-and-a-half.


Mugshot Released of Somali Muslim Terrorist Who Tried to Run Over Jews Outside LA Synagogue!

As Gateway Pundit reporter Cristina Laila reported earlier — 32-year-old driver named Mohammed Mohammed repeatedly tried to mow down Jews walking near a synagogue in Los Angeles on the Sabbath.

ohammed was reportedly screaming, “F*cking Jews!” while he circled around two times attempting to run over Jewish men.

Somali Muslim Mohamed Mohamed Abdi was arrested for an Assault with a Deadly Weapon/Hate Crime that occurred in the area of Highland & Oakwood (major cross street Beverly Blvd) on November 23rd.

A witness snapped a picture of a Quran on Mohammed’s dashboard (screenshot above) and the media was still cautious to call this an act of terror because his ‘religion is still unknown.’

In contrast, when a Nazi shot up the Tree of Life Synagogue last month, every headline was emblazoned with “Nazi” or “white supremacist.”


Trump tells Mexico to ship migrants home or see border permanently closed

President Trump offered Mexico some advice on deporting migrants massed in Tijuana and threatening to storm the U.S., telling the neighboring nation in a tweet to send them “back to their countries” by plane or by bus – or face a permanent closure of the border.

Trump’s tweet followed a vow from Mexico to deport migrants who tried to illegally enter the U.S. The Trump administration has said asylum claims from members of a series of caravans originating in Central America must be processed outside the U.S., and that all those entering illegally will be denied. A federal judge has at least temporarily ruled against the policy, but the administration has taken steps to harden the border.

“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries,” Trump tweeted early Monday morning. “Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”

The missive came after a chaotic Sunday that saw hundreds of migrants from a caravan that originated in Central American pushing past Mexican riot police and rushing the border at the port of entry in San Ysidro, Calif., in a major test for both U.S. border authorities and Mexican officials.

Ocasio-Cortez Likens Migrant Caravan to Jews Fleeing Holocaust

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted a tweet on Sunday evening comparing the migrant caravan members attempting to illegally cross the U.S. border to Jewish families fleeing persecution during the Holocaust.

The 29-year-old self-described Democratic Socialist referred to the hundreds of migrants attempting to rush the border at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego, California, on Sunday, saying the migrants are no different from the Jews who fled persecution in Nazi Germany:


Newt Gingrich: 'War on the Border' Guided by Leftists

There is a war on the U.S.-Mexican border, and American leftists are guiding and financing it, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich claimed Monday, while commenting on reports of clashes between migrants and Border Patrol agents at the California border.

"This war on the border is real,” Gingrich told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

"What people are trying to do is a psychological war, very often guided, by the way, by American leftists who are activists and American left-wing organizations who are helping finance it.”

This is happening, Gingrich said, because "their goal is to find some way to embarrass the U.S. government so we can’t even control our own border, and we have to be prepared to stand up to that, and to do whatever is necessary.”

“You are either going to have a country and have a border or you are not going to have a country," said Gingrich.


Three Times Previous Presidents Closed the Southern Border

On three past occasions, presidents temporarily closed the southern border, something President Donald Trump threatened Monday to do permanently.

Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan both closed the border over drug-related issues that halted entry from Mexico into the United States.

President Lyndon B. Johnson, shortly after taking office amid crisis, closed the border after the assassination of his predecessor, John F. Kennedy.

While Johnson’s example was unique, all three cases dealt with a president’s authority to act on the border during an emergency. The Trump administration has determined that the series of “caravans” of thousands of Central American migrants headed to the border is an emergency.

With Nixon in 1969 and Reagan in 1985–as is the case today–the United States was trying to pressure the Mexican government’s law enforcement into stepping up its efforts.

Report: Jerome Corsi Plans to Sue Mueller

Former Infowars D.C. bureau chief Jerome Corsi will reject a plea agreement offered by the special counsel and fire back with a criminal complaint, accusing Robert Mueller of “Gestapo” tactics in attempting to pressure the author into pleading guilty to one count of perjury.

“They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie,” Corsi said in a brief telephone call with CNN. Asked what Mueller office will do next if he does not agree to the plea deal, Corsi replied, “I don’t know.”

Instead of accepting a plea deal, OAN’s Emerald Robinson reports Corsi will file a criminal complaint against Mueller with acting Attorney General Mathew Whitaker.


Research From Latest US Climate Report Tied to 2 Major Democratic Donors

It’s been repeated throughout the media that global warming could wipe out one-tenth of the U.S. economy by 2100. Now it’s a top-line finding of a major government climate report, but based on a study funded by groups affiliated with two major Democratic donors.

The oft-repeated claim also stemmed from a global warming projection that’s come under increased scrutiny from experts, including one who called it “outlandish.”

The federal government released the second volume of the National Climate Assessment, or NCA, on Friday. The federal report issued dire warnings, including from “ice sheet disintegration on accelerated sea level rise, leading to widespread effects on coastal development lasting thousands of years.”

The report also claims that “global greenhouse gas emissions is expected to cause substantial net damage to the U.S. economy throughout this century,” including a 10 percent hit to the nation’s gross domestic product in one extreme scenario.

Caravan Migrants Pushed Women and Children to Front of Clash While Assaulting Officers

Forty-two caravan migrants broke into the United and were arrested on Sunday, while organizers pushed women and children to the front of the melee, a top border patrol agent told CNN.

“Forty-two [caravan migrants] crossed the border and were arrested … there were numerous people that actually made it across the border,” said Rodney Scott, Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector of the border.

The caravan’s organizers also pushed women and children to the front of the clash, Scott said November 26:

"What I find unconscionable is that people would take children intentionally into this situation. What we saw over and over yesterday was that the group, the caravan as we call them, would push women and children toward the front and then begin, basically, rocking our agents."

Scott said his agent did not aim the tear gas at the women and children who climbed up towards the wall...


Experts on Feds' Climate Change Report: ‘Every Conclusion' Is 'False'

The federal government’s Fourth National Climate Assessment, released on Friday, has gained praise from leftists and left-wing environmental groups as a dire warning of the coming death and destruction in the United States if we don’t stop global warming.

But critics of the report, including scientists, have slammed it as “exaggeration,” bad science and even said its conclusions are “false.”

“This latest climate report is just more of the same – except for even greater exaggeration, worse science, and added interference in the political process by unelected, self-serving bureaucrats,” Tim Huelskamp, president of the Heartland Institute said in statements released by the free-market think tank following the report’s release.


Lindsey Graham and the Senate aren't afraid to do the right thing on Saudi Arabia

On Sunday evening, Sen. Lindsey Graham said that if the CIA believed that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi that he would push for sanctions against the de facto leader of Saudi Arabia.

Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and writer for the Washington Post, was killed on apparent orders from the Saudi government when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain a document required for his marriage. When Khashoggi went missing, the Saudi government at first denied that it knew anything about his disappearance. It later said that he had been killed in a fistfight at the consulate. Finally, under international pressure, the kingdom changed its story again to say that he had in fact been murdered, but that the crown prince was not himself involved.

Since then, the CIA has reportedly concluded that Khashoggi would not have been killed without an order from the crown prince. This contradicts Trump’s statement last Tuesday that Crown Prince Mohammed’s involvement was not knowable and that, at any rate, Saudi Arabia was an important ally.


Governor Larry Hogan Announces Emergency Nonpartisan Redistricting Commission, Resubmits Redistricting Reform Legislation

Nine-Member Emergency Panel to Comply With Court Ruling on 6th Congressional District

Governor Larry Hogan today signed Executive Order 01.01.2018.29 creating an Emergency Commission on Sixth Congressional District Gerrymandering, a nonpartisan commission to comply with a federal court order requiring Maryland to draw new boundaries for the 6th Congressional District. The governor also announced his intent to reintroduce legislation to create a permanent nonpartisan redistricting process for both congressional and legislative districts on the first day of the 2019 session of the Maryland General Assembly.

The governor was joined by Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford; the co-chairs of the Maryland Redistricting Reform Commission Judge Alexander Williams, who was appointed by President Clinton to the U.S. District Court in Maryland and Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the CATO Institute’s Center for Constitutional Studies; and League of Women Voters administrator Ashley Oleson, who also served on the commission established by the governor in 2015.

In November 2018, a three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court ruled unanimously in the case of Benisek v. Lamone that Maryland’s 6th Congressional District is unconstitutional and must be redrawn prior to the 2020 election, giving a deadline of March 7, 2019. In his opinion, Chief Judge James K. Bredar referred to the type of partisan gerrymandering that had been inflicted on the voters of the 6th District a “cancer on our democracy.”

“Free and fair elections are the very foundation of American democracy and the most basic promise that those in power can pledge to the citizens we represent," said Governor Hogan. "This unanimous ruling was a victory for the overwhelming majority of Marylanders who value fairness and balance in our political system - who are fed up with the divisive partisan politics that are used to suppress any honest debate or real competition of ideas.”

USPS announces new stamp series on Depression-era post office murals

Back in July 2016, “Save the Post Office” suggested that the Postal Service should put out a stamp series celebrating post office murals. As we noted then, “the Postal Service possesses over a thousand murals produced by FDR’s New Deal during the Great Depression. The paintings celebrate American workers, local histories, and significant national events. The murals themselves should be celebrated with a new USPS stamp series.”

This week the Postal Service announced several new stamp series that will come out in 2019, and among them is a series featuring five of these New Deal murals. As the USPS press release says, the murals were “designed to add a touch of beauty to Post Office walls and help boost the morale of Americans during the era of the Great Depression.”

Man killed woman hours after his release from prison, authorities say

A man who police suspect of killing a woman hours after he was released from an Arizona prison was arrested Friday at a hotel, authorities said Saturday.

The suspect, identified as David Bohart, 34, had been released from the Tucson state prison complex Monday after serving a three-year stint for possession or use of dangerous drugs, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections website.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to check in to a court-ordered drug treatment facility.

On Wednesday, Tucson police found the body of Marika L. Jones, 49, with stab wounds at a home along with a file of prison records about Bohart, the Arizona Republic reported.

It was not immediately clear what connection Bohart had to Jones or what led to her death. He was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder, the report said.
