During the White House border-security meeting on Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen presented a report on current conditions at the southern border. New Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Nielsen, “I reject your facts.” To which Nielsen responded, “These are not my facts. These are the facts.”
Fox News’ Lukas Mikelionis said the statistic that pushed Pelosi over the edge was, “border officials along the U.S.-Mexico border had…

While many workers around the country are fighting to get their dues money back from unions in the wake of Janus v AFSCME, some seasonal UPS workers in Boston are dealing with a very different problem this Christmas season. It seems that some employees who were hired to help with the holiday surge of shipping were informed that they would need to join the Teamsters to take part in these temporary jobs.…Continue
One of the first men to orbit the Moon has told BBC Radio 5 Live that it's "stupid" to plan human missions to Mars.
Bill Anders, lunar module pilot of Apollo 8, the first human spaceflight to leave Earth's orbit, said sending crews to Mars was "almost ridiculous".

As one that has served in the Middle East twice in the military, I am not so sure President Trump is wrong.
Syria is a mess. It will be in the future a money pit for any nation staying there. It is all but a failed state. The civil war has destroyed so much of the nation with all the fighting. Rebuilding will cost a fortune at least.
Russia wants to stay. They have been fighting the terrorists. So will Putin be asked by Assad as the last nation there to foot the bill to…Continue

Below is a letter I just sent to both of my unfortunately Democrat Senators.
I am watching the presser with Minority Leaders Pelosi, Schumer. My takeaway is that you oppose building the wall President Trump is requesting. If you vote “No” on building the wall, then to live the way you vote. By this I mean you should immediately remove all the locks in your house and shut down any alarms in the house.
Then you can welcome anyone in that enters. I…Continue
Today the Senate confirmed Judge Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court. This was done despite your side’s despicable tactics to attempt to prevent. This nomination was to be strongly opposed no matter who President nominated. But America was shocked by how low your side is willing to go. What a disgrace!
You voted “NO”. You never said anything to those protesting to have a civil discussion. So I can only conclude these outrageous tactics were supported by you. So is…Continue

I am not happy with the conduct of your party concerning Judge Kavanaugh. This action by Senator Feinstein reeks of a cheap and underhanded political stunt. This is no different than the “lynching” your side attempted with Justice Thomas.
So now your side is trying to repeat that attempted “lynching”. It is disgusting. It is dirty politics. It is unprofessional and brings great discredit to the United States Senate.
I have been the victim of a false…Continue
This weekend to a small crowd of about 750 to 900 people, Usurper Soetoro claimed that he is responsible for our economy! The ill-informed crowd cheered. They have forgotten that Barry said manufacturing jobs were not returning. Today, many of those jobs are. Barry said that less than two percent growth was the new normal. President Trump has it over four percent.
This is not the first time a Democrat…Continue

'The Constitution does not specifically provide for annulment of an unconstitutional presidency'
BY: David Rutz
Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich wrote in a new column that Donald Trump's presidency should be "annulled" if evidence emerges that he "rigged" the 2016 election.
Reich, who ran the Department of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997, argued in a piece for Newsweek that removal from office would not be sufficient if Trump is guilty because his…

Privacy and health activists long have raised opposition to smart meters – the technological wizards that monitor power usage in a home, sometimes on a minute-by-minute basis, and report it to the utility that owns them. And sometimes others.
Now an appeals court has affirmed that their readings constitute a “search” under the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, which establishes “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against…

In June 2017, at the height of the cascade of leaks of classified material someone leaked to the Qatar-funded website, The Intercept, a copy of a classified report on Russian attempts to penetrate US electoral systems. Because of the nitwittery at The Intercept, when the government was asked to verify the authenticity of the document they were also able to identify the leaker. The leaker, 26-year-old Air Force veteran and contract intelligence analyst improbably named Reality Winner,…Continue

Warren said she's 'sorry' Mollie Tibbetts is dead, but we must focus on the 'real problems' of lawbreaking parents at the border who are being temporarily separated from their kids.

Today President Trump revoked former CIA head Brennan's Top Secret clearance. I think for good reason. There is a HUGE part of the story that has not been told.
In the Air Force and MI Army National Guard, I have held both Secret and Top Secret clearances. That did NOT mean that I had access to all the Secret and Top Secret information that was on base. There is a second part, NEED TO KNOW. You had to have BOTH to have access to any classified…Continue

West Virginia is the butt of a lot of jokes, some of them undeserved, but there is something happening there right now that could be a useful lesson for the GOP caucus in Congress. The West Virginia legislature has forced one member of the West Virginia Supreme Court from the bench and seems poised to send the rest packing.
The West Virginia House of Delegates Judiciary Committee has drafted 14 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices on the West Virginia Supreme Court…

The vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee is asking Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to stop the retail giant’s “sale of literature and music published by entities identified as ‘hate groups’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center.”
While the letter from U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., later specifies concern about “neo-nazis and white nationalist writers,” his opening, sweeping statement about SPLC-designated “hate groups” should be cause for alarm,…

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.
Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No…Continue
