    Sacha Cohen Tried To Trick Gun Store Owner, Who Wasn’t Having It

    A gun store owner in Riverside, California is “100 percent positive” actor Sacha Baron Cohen tried to trick him into filming an interview for his fake docu-series on Showtime called “Who Is America?”

    Norris Sweidan, owner of Warrior One Guns and Ammo said a man heavily disguised and speaking with a thick, fake accent walked into his store with a camera crew in tow in February 2017 under the pretense that the man was a Hungarian immigrant seeking to buy a gun, according to an exclusive report by Fox 11.

    Wild Conspiracy Theories Only Obscure Trump’s Blunder On Russia

    Much of the media coverage of President Trump’s meeting and subsequent press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday has focused on Trump brushing off a question about whether Russian agents meddled in America’s 2016 election.

    Here’s the clip that’s sucked up all the oxygen in the room.

    Instead of pointing out the obvious — that Trump missed a chance to put America first and, rather than speak truth to power, punted in an effort to shore up relations with Putin throughout ongoing negotiations — his opponents are choosing to voice the stupidest criticism ever. Some are calling his press conference high treason, while others insist it is proof that Trump colluded with Russian officials to steal the election from Hilary.

    “Trump told the Finnish President Just now he enjoyed spending time with him at the NATO summit,” Rogin tweeted tagging his CNN colleagues Jake Tapper and Christiane Amanpour. “Finland is not part of NATO. #awkward.”

  • Meghan McCain Takes On Behar's Ridiculous 'Nazi Germany' Comparison

    A Nation That Cannot Control Its Borders Is Not A Nation

    In a segment on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, Meghan McCain said that part of what makes a nation is its ability to secure its own border.

    After stating that she’s been a longtime supporter of comprehensive immigration reform and that she believes in the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty that welcomes immigrants seeking a better life, McCain said that’s not in conflict with border security.

    “I also believe that we are a nation of borders and laws, ” she said. “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation, according to Ronald Reagan.”

    She also criticized the way the Trump administration is handling the situation along the border, but added that what he’s doing shouldn’t surprise anyone.

    What Ancient Sparta Can Teach Us About Politics Today

    In the second lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, which you can follow along with here, Paul A. Rahe, a professor of Western heritage at Hillsdale, explains what life was like in ancient Sparta.

    Unlike the Athenians, Spartans left little behind for modern men to marvel at. There are no temples or other massive structures that survived centuries, like in Athens today. Nor did they leave much in terms of literature for modern historians to study and learn about their society, but that shouldn’t lead one to believe their legacy was of lesser importance.

    Sparta’s Constitution Is Much Like Ours Today

    Sparta was the first society in ancient Greece to create a government with restrictions on power and checks and balances baked into its political system.

Garza case was allowed to get an abortion while she was being detained by federal officials — a ruling that could have had sweeping implications for U.S. immigration policy.

    President Trump’s Department of Justice intended to appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court, but the girl’s attorneys, who are with the American Civil Liberties Union, rushed her to get an abortion at 4:15 a.m.
