    New Jersey: 16-Year-Old Girl Stabbed To Death By Illegal Alien As NJ Goes Sanctuary State

    They say that you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. And you also can’t make New Jersey into a sanctuary state without stabbing a few teenage girls to death.

    Just ask Governor Phil Murphy.

    Former Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy took office as New Jersey’s new governor Tuesday, and said he plans to establish a state agency geared toward aiding undocumented immigrants, the Washington Post reported Monday.

    Murphy, a Democrat who held the ambassador post under President Barack Obama after several years as a Goldman Sachs executive, said the agency would be called the Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection. READ MORE...

  • Lisa Page: FBI Still Lacked Evidence When Rod Rosenstein Appointed A Special Counsel in May 2017

    Lisa Page: FBI Still Lacked Evidence When Rod Rosenstein Appointed A Special Counsel in May 2017

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has some explaining to do. He appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate possible collusion between President Trump and Russia prior to the 2016 election. The problem with that? There was no evidence. Fox News’ Catherine Herridge has just broken a story, which I can only describe as a game changer, and I don’t use that term lightly.

    Fox News has obtained a transcript of former FBI attorney Lisa Page’s testimony before Congress this summer. The FBI counterintelligence investigation had been opened at the end of July 2016, and Page said that as late as May 2017, the month that Rosenstein appointed Mueller, there was no evidence of collusion.

  • Strzok Wanted To Use CNN’s January 2017 Report Of Trump Dossier As A ‘Pretext To Go Interview People’

    Strzok Wanted To Use CNN’s January 2017 Report Of Trump Dossier As A ‘Pretext To Go Interview People’

    As DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz weighs the question of whether or not fired FBI Official Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump bias caused him to open the counterintelligence investigation into Trump/Russia collusion, he has released several incriminating text message exchanges between Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page. I wrote about some of them here. A new text was just published that demonstrates the direct connection between the FBI, the media, and the interview of former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos.  READ MORE...

  • Bad Apples at the IRS, State's Security Breach Under Hillary, and Other Runaway Agencies

    Bad Apples at the IRS, State’s Security Breach Under Hillary, and Other Runaway Agencies

    Editor’s note: Poorly run government programs prompt many a comment from the audience of The Daily Signal. We’ve got some of those in this roundup. Be sure to write us at [email protected]—Ken McIntyre

    Dear Daily Signal: The federal civil service system needs to be changed to make it less difficult to terminate employees for cause, as John York writes in his commentary on the Internal Revenue Service (“The IRS Has Rehired Hundreds of Fired Employees. Congress Should Step In”).

    Assuming these previously fired or otherwise terminated IRS employees were afforded reasonable due process and let go for legitimate cause, they should not have been rehired. READ MORE...

  • Why We Couldn't Create Our Constitution Today

    Why We Couldn’t Create Our Constitution Today

    Americans should be thankful not only for the rare genius that assembled in Philadelphia in 1787 to draft the Constitution, but for the unique circumstances under which they met.

    Not all moments in time are ripe for founding a nation. Nor is every citizenry equally prepared to receive new modes and orders. The Founders’ time and generation presented just such an opportunity. Our time would not.

    Earlier this month, University of Texas law professor Sanford Levinson wrote that “not enough people connect the dots … between our political dysfunctions and the sacred Constitution of 1787.” READ MORE...

  • Anonymous New York Times Author Proves the Deep State Is Real, and Dangerous

    Anonymous New York Times Author Proves the Deep State Is Real, and Dangerous

    When Republicans lost the 1856 election, Abraham Lincoln had a sober message: “Whoever can change public opinion, can change the government.”

    Whoever wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed, however, wants it the other way around.

    The biggest revelation from the Times op-ed isn’t the nameless author’s views on Trump. It’s the tacit admission of the existence—and arrogance—of the deep state.

    The deep state is shorthand for the vast network of career bureaucrats and unelected operatives working to advance an agenda that never faces public scrutiny. While administrations come and go, these government employees are a fixture in Washington, D.C. READ MORE...

  • Democrats Want Us To Believe All Women…Unless They’re Accusing Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton, Al Franken Or George Soros

    Democrats Want Us To Believe All Women…Unless They’re Accusing Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton, Al Franken Or George Soros

    The Democrats have called upon the Senate to postpone the vote on Kavanaugh. Establishment Republicans are racing for the exits. But over what? An unprovable accusation from decades ago that the accuser said nothing about until years later, and that is uncorroborated by any other testimony or by the evidence of any similar behavior on Kavanaugh’s part. This is clearly a set-up (Christine Ford is also a far-left Democrat operative) designed to derail the nomination of a good man. There is no low to which the Democrats will not sink to attain their nefarious goals of stopping the President from strengthening America and protecting Americans. READ MORE...
