In yet another annoyance for the Trump Administration as it seeks to implement its immigration reforms to end what’s become an undeniable crisis at the southern border, a federal judge in San Francisco has issued an injunction blocking a Trump administration policy that would have returned non-Mexican asylum seekers to Mexico while their cases were pending.
I think everyone would agree the President’s determination to hold high-ranking U.S. government officials accountable for their actions, ranks as number one among the promises Donald J. Trump made on his 2016 campaign trail.
Kirstjen Nielsen has resigned as Department of Homeland Security secretary in the midst of soaring illegal immigration levels and an expanded Catch and Release policy under her direction.
On Sunday, President Trump wrote online that Nielsen would be leaving her position as head of DHS.
Nielsen’s resignation as DHS secretary comes amid a surge of illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border and an expanded Catch and Release policy that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has been tasked with carrying out.
Most of my listeners will recall the cleansing of all branches of our military of any officer suspected of disloyalty to or disagreement with the previous administration on matters of policy or force-structure. The intention was to leave only those that were compliant, fearful, or both. What the previous administration did to our officer corps was unprecedented, baffling and harmful to our national security. Some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham, for example, was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he went against direct orders to stand-down and attempted to mount a Benghazi rescue mission.
Proving themselves happy to pander to folks who can’t let go of the Collusion Delusion, The New York Times and Washington Post are both suggesting that Attorney General William Barr spun special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to make President Trump look good. But neither account amounts to more than click-bait.
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is really proud of her brand-new tool, a recently rediscovered section of a 1924 law, to obtain access to the last six years of President Trump’s tax returns.
Pelosi gleefully explained in a recent presser, the democrats now have an airtight case for forcing disclosure of the documents.
The attempted take-down of President Trump involved senior figures in the intelligence community, the very people Chuck Schumer, in a moment of candor, warned Donald Trump — before he was inaugurated — about opposing, suggesting a sinister cabal of individuals runs the country. Schumer’s very public warning to the incoming chief executive was nationally televised during a guest appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
