    How Trump’s First Year Illegal Immigration Stats Measure Up to Obama’s Final Year

    The Trump administration counts the overall successes in curbing illegal immigration as “another success,” but since May there has been an increase of families and unaccompanied children illegally coming across the border.

    “These are 60,000 American patriots that choose this profession to defend this country,” Thomas Homan says.

    Some experts attribute this to the talk of amnesty for so-called “Dreamers,” or illegal immigrants brought into the country as minors.

    The Department of Homeland Security released its final numbers for fiscal year 2017 that spanned the final months of Barack Obama’s presidency and the first nine months of Donald Trump’s presidency, October 1, 2016 through Sept. 30, 2017. The federal government arrested almost 40 percent more illegal immigrants inside the country in the past fiscal year. READ MORE...

    FBI Director Punts on Committee’s Questions About Trump-Russia, Clinton Email Probes

    FBI Director Christopher Wray told a congressional hearing on Thursday that investigations should never be politicized, while at the same time defending the integrity of the people who serve in the bureau.

    “I am emphasizing to every audience I can inside the bureau that our decisions need to be made based on nothing other than the facts and the law and the rules of our processes and our core values at the FBI, and not based on any political considerations on any side of the aisle,” Wray told the House Judiciary Committee.

    Why The Supreme Court Is Likely To Rule For Jack Phillips

    If Tuesday’s oral argument is any indication, the year-long anticipation for the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court showdown will result in a narrow opinion that provides little clarity in the continuing conflict between culture and religious liberty.

    By now the basics are well-known: When a homosexual couple asked Jack Phillips, the owner of the Colorado-based Masterpiece Cakeshop, to design a wedding cake for them, Phillips informed the pair that he could not, in conscience, create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The men filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, claiming Masterpiece Cakeshop “discriminated against them in a place of public accommodation” because of their sexual orientation.

    Was Russia Investigation Compromised By Steele Dossier?

    On “Special Report” Thursday evening, Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway discussed Russia and government corruption given new evidence of politicization inside special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump administration.

    New information surfaced this week that FBI official Peter Strzok was removed from the investigation in July for anti-Trump text messages. Strzok was one of two FBI agents who interviewed former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn, who recently pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Strzok also interviewed top Hillary Clinton aides during the FBI investigation of her email use that endangered national security. READ MORE...

    August Ames Didn’t Have To Die Over Accusations Of Homophobia

    Warning: This article contains graphic language and some links include nudity.

    Tuesday, December 5, 2017. That was the day the Internet claimed adult film actress August Ames. The actress, born Mercedes Grabowski, hanged herself following days of accusations of homophobia after she tweeted about canceling a shoot upon discovering that the man involved had shot gay porn.

    Apparently, it wasn’t her body, her choice. If it were, the online salvo would’ve been condemned rather than amped. For a convenient timeline, check @WeWuzMetokur’s Twitter feed (gross trolling and graphic content warning). Regardless, some who participated in the public lynching that led to her suicide have no remorse. READ MORE...

    The Christian Baker Need Not Have Ended Up at the Supreme Court

    On Dec. 5, the Supreme Court heard the case of Jack Phillips, the Christian baker who can’t in good conscience design and create wedding cakes that celebrate same-sex marriages. The justices now will decide whether states, consistent with the First Amendment, can force citizens to express support for same-sex marriage through their artistic products.

    But this case needn’t have ended up at the court. And future cases like it can be avoided.

    Agree or disagree, but Phillips believes he is serving Christ with every cake he makes. He has previously turned down requests to create Halloween-themed cakes, lewd bachelor party cakes, and a cake celebrating a divorce. He was never reprimanded over those decisions, but the same-sex-wedding cake plunged him into hot water. READ MORE...

  • 18 Questions CNN Needs To Answer After Getting Busted For Fake News

    18 Questions CNN Needs To Answer After Getting Busted For Fake News

    Early on Friday, CNN promoted its latest breathless report purporting to show collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. CNN has been extremely invested in the narrative of collusion for the last year.

    In June, CNN was forced to pull one of its Russia-Trump conspiracy stories that “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The discredited story was based on a single anonymous source who connected Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent ally of President Trump, to a Russian investment fund managed by a Kremlin-controlled bank. Three journalists who worked on the story were fired. READ MORE...
