The shooting, which was caught on video, unfolded in 16 seconds, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office said. Continue reading

More than 600 children were “recycled” by human traffickers looking to exploit loopholes in the American immigration system during the past fiscal year, a federal immigration official told lawmakers Wednesday.
At a hearing to evaluate border statistics during fiscal year 2019, which ended Sept. 30, Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting Deputy Director Derek Benner told the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee that the figure was a result of a DHS initiative called “Operation Noble Guardian” to identify situations “where fraudulent families were released into the interior, and then the children were separated from those unrelated adults and they were taken to an airport and flown back” to Central America.

When Antifa scholar Mark Bray, known for advocating political violence, gave a guest lecture in September at Bucknell University on the eve of the 9/11 anniversary, it was met with little resistance.
The talk was hosted by the Humanities Center and largely welcomed on campus. A few wary scholars did not object to his speech, only how he was championed by organizers “as some kind of morally serious person courageously challenging evil.” Continue reading

A large hole now stands where, only one day earlier, two homes were torn to the ground by Israeli air strikes. Looking over the debris, dozens of relatives and neighbours gathered to remember the eight members of the al-Sawarka family, who were killed in the attack.
The two adjacent shabby houses with tin ceilings were located in a marginalised area of the Deir al-Balah refugee camp on the southern Gaza Strip. Continue reading

Hours after meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Wednesday blocked a resolution that would have condemned the Armenian genocide of 1915.
Graham stated he blocked the resolution because he did not want the Senate to “sugarcoat history or try to rewrite it.” Whatever its other merits or drawbacks might be, condemning the Armenian genocide would seem to be the opposite of sugarcoating history. Graham’s office did not respond to a request from Fox News for elaboration of the senator’s thinking. Continue reading

Breitbart – by Pam Key
On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control.
Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Continue reading
