North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows said Sunday that he expects the Justice Department’s inspector general to issue criminal referrals as part of an investigation into the FBI’s possible abuse of the surveillance courts during the Trump-Russia probe.
On April 10, 2019, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, at the conclusion of a five-day visit to Mexico, held a press conference stating that Mexico needs a comprehensive, long-term solution, to its security crisis. Bachelet added that a new National Guard could be a large part of that solution.
“The creation of the National Guard could open the opportunity to create a new civilian police force,” she said.
Mexico’s president, López Obrador, signed an agreement to allow the UN to assist in human rights training for Mexico’s National Guard members.
“Experience shows us that you can’t have security without full respect for human rights and you can’t enjoy human rights without security,” Bachelet said.
Obrador stated in February of this year that the new security force will conduct itself in a way similar to United Nations peacekeepers, pledging that “human rights will be respected.”

Since yesterday, April 13, 2019, I’ve seen a story being circulated claiming that Wikileaks, in response to the arrest of Julian Assange, has released a massive amount of new files at file.wikileaks.org Those that access the files will notice the majority have had their dates reset to 1984. That 1984 reset date was put into effect some time ago, in 2016.
No insurance policy was released and the files that are available have been available for years according to this tweet posted by Wikileaks on April 13, 2019 at 10:51 am.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of President Trump Friday, when it determined that the government can at least temporarily continue to send asylum seekers back to Mexico.
The asylum program was scheduled to be shut down at midnight under an order from District Court Judge Richard Seeborg, but the White House had requested the appeals court to intervene.
President Donald Trump said on Friday that he’s considering sending more asylum seekers to sanctuary cities if they don’t change the existing immigration laws.
He told a group of reporters that he was “strongly looking at” the idea after visiting Texas and California and the border, where his administration was constructing new physical barriers.
What will it take? Another two years? Another 19 hardened Democrat lawyers and 40 professional staffers? Another 500 witnesses? Another 50 million dollars spent, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants?
After almost three years of being saturated in a unending deluge of every form of media. After almost three years of pronouncements of daily imminent and incontrovertible proof of Trump “collusion,” we finally have a report that tells us, “Never mind, we got nothin’. Go about your business, forget you were ever led to believe otherwise.” This shock is as great as the shock felt by the adoring Hillary crowd that predicted her overwhelming landslide victory in her run for president. So sure, but so wrong. Twice.
