    Soros & The Media’s Censorship Plot: What The Facebook Wars Are Really All About

    Facebook got its start as FaceMash: a site comparing the attractiveness of female Harvard students. It was then reborn as a social network for Harvard students, Ivy League schools and then everyone.

    More recent surveys showed that the average Facebook user in the United States is 40 years old. That makes Facebook users less likely to start stupid viral trends, those tend to come from younger social media apps, some owned by Facebook, and more likely to be deeply engaged in politics.

    Mark Zuckerberg had created a company to appeal to college students who wanted to rate the cutest girls on campus, but is instead stuck with a monster worth hundreds of billions (that number will continue fluctuating with media hit pieces) used by people with actual jobs to share family photos and talk politics. And it’s the politics part, not the baby photos, that’s turning the heat up on Zuckerberg. READ MORE...

    Judge Affirms Trump’s Cancellation of Obama Policy

    (AP) SAN FRANCISCO — The Trump administration provided adequate justification for its decision to end a program that reunited hundreds of immigrants from Central America with family members in the U.S., a federal judge ruled Monday.

    Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler threw out the bulk of a lawsuit that argued the termination of the Obama-era Central American Minors program was arbitrary and violated the U.S. Constitution.

    The program allowed parents legally in the U.S. to apply to bring children or other family members living in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador to the U.S. READ MORE...

    Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Murder Was Previously Deported at Least 8 Times

    An illegal immigrant arrested for allegedly shooting and killing a co-worker in Oregon is discovered to have been deported at least eight times.

    Officers were able to locate and arrest Vargas-Ortiz a day after the alleged shooting. The suspect had fled to Washington state, where a SWAT team apprehended him in a local hotel. READ MORE...

  • Kamala Harris Went After Kavanaugh - Now Her Aide Stands Accused Of Sexual Harassment

    Kamala Harris Tweets #BelieveSurvivors – Doesn’t Believe Woman Who Accused Her Aide Of Sexual Harassment

    As Lena Dunham reminds us, it’s easy to believe all women, until one of them accuses one of your male friends and allies.

    During the Kavanaugh circus, Senator Kamala Harris was riding the Believe All Women express and tweeted, #BelieveSurvivors. Now her faith, as Darth Vader would say, is lacking, after it emerged that one of her aides had been accused of sexual harassment.

    Sen. Kamala Harris said Thursday that she did not know about the allegations of harassment made against one of her longtime staff members, who resigned Wednesday after The Sacramento Bee inquired about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice.

  • Senate Introduces Wall Act, Congress Passes Temporary Spending Bill

    Senate Introduces Wall Act, Congress Passes Temporary Spending Bill

    A government shutdown is avoided for now. The Wall is still in doubt. Nancy Pelosi calls the wall immoral.

    Wall Act

    Today, GOP senators introduced the Wall Act.

    Who’s Paying for the Wall?

    “The WALL Act would fully fund the border wall by closing existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a statement on Thursday.

    “If you want to receive food stamps and other benefits, then you should prove your citizenship. If you cross the border illegally or overstay your visit to this country, then you should pay a stiff penalty,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) added. READ MORE...
