  1. By R. Mitchell - TUCSON, Ariz. – Agents assigned to the Ajo Station encountered several large groups totaling nearly 400 persons and Central American families after they illegally entered the country west of Lukeville over the weekend. The first group, totaling 216 illegal aliens, was encountered early Saturday morning, after they illegally entered the country. Agents operating mobile surveillance technology spotted the group spread out along a desolate road that parallels the international boundary fence. Composed of mostly family units of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, the group is consistent with dozens of other large groups arrested in the area over the past few months. Monday morning, agents encountered a large group totaling 179 persons. Much like the first, the group was comprised of Central American family units and children, who sought agents out after entering the country illegally. Agents continue to see large groups that include family units and the youngest of children Agents patrolling in surrounding areas were diverted to the area to process both groups. All persons were transported to the Ajo Station.

  5. By Nick Givas - White House adviser Kellyanne Conway called on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California to resign Monday after the release of Robert Mueller’s Russia report. “When you’re talking about collusion and talking to Russia, and conspiracies and obstruction of justice for two years with no proof other than people leaking to you or you just, you just guffawing with the anchor next to you and fake lawyers on TV and the journalists who are pretending to be lawyers for that moment. You’re calling us all … You’re saying that we did not win fairly and squarely,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “You, in fact, running around jutting your jaw out and saying ‘I’m worried about the effect of institutions.’ You were disparaging the institutions. You were demeaning and deriding our great democracy — The presidency of the United States. Adam Schiff should resign,” she continued. “He has no right as somebody who has been pedaling a lie day after day after day. Unchallenged. Unchallenged and not under oath. Somebody should have put him under oath and said, ‘Do you have evidence? Where is it?’ Because Bob Mueller already ran the fair and the full investigation. And any partisan, politicized investigation from here on in will never have the credibility of the Mueller investigation.” Attorney General William Barr delivered his report on the Mueller probe to Congress Sunday, and wrote that Trump and his campaign team did not collude with any Russian entities during the election. Barr also said there was no evidence to suggest Trump obstructed justice. Conway said the media has gotten away with being overly biased and has yet to pay for their mistakes with Russia and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “There is not a single person in the media who got the 2016 elections so chronically and embarrassingly wrong [and] lost their jobs. And they probably won’t here, too. Look what they did to Brett Kavanaugh. The second most popular story in the Trump presidency was the Russian collusion fake hoax nonsense. The most covered stories I read last night in a condensed period of time was Brett Kavanaugh,” she said earlier in the interview. “And they treated him the same way. That is microcosmic version of what they tried to do to President Trump and his campaign and his family for the last two years. It’s a drive-by. They abandoned all standards, all personal ethics, all professional duty. Do you realize major papers in this country won Pulitzer prizes over their reporting over something that is totally fake? Over 13,000 stories combined by two major print outlets and two major cable stations not named Fox News. And as somebody who engages with those people [as] much as I can, and tries to get out there, we were basically were being told we were liars.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  6. By Mary Margaret Olohan - A sexual violence prevention group, Raliance, announced Monday that they were honoring Kavanaugh-accuser Christine Blasey Ford as their 2019 Person of the Year. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the fall of 2018 and accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of having sexually assaulted her. She ultimately did not provide enough information to indict Kavanaugh but was subsequently hailed as a hero by many sexual assault advocacies and #METOO proponents. Since then, Ford has faced a large amount of death threats and has had to change homes for fears of her safety. Raliance attempts to stop sexual violence through research, policy, and supportive programs. They advertise themselves as “a national partnership dedicated to ending sexual violence in one generation.” In a statement, Raliance said that they chose Ford as their Person of the Year because she is a “passionate and public champion for survivors of sexual assault.” “Her testimony in the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh had a global impact on how we respond to and support survivors of sexual assault. Dr. Ford’s sacrifice in sharing her experience, and the difficulties she subsequently endured, brought much-needed attention to the importance of supporting and believing survivors.” Raliance is also honoring Democratic Wisconsin Representative Gwen Moore with their Policy Maker Award, in honor of her “tireless advocate for women’s rights and civil rights issues, including sexual assault, domestic violence and women’s health.” In addition, they are honoring Tony West, the chief legal officer at Uber as a Corporate Innovator, and Indira Henard, the executive director of the D.C. Rape Crisis Center. Awardees will attend a ceremony in Washington, D.C. next week.

  7. By R. Mitchell - WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation today announced the establishment of an expert Special Committee to review the procedures of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the certification of new aircraft, including the Boeing 737 MAX. “Safety is the number one priority of the Department, and this review by leading outside experts will help determine if improvements can be made to the FAA aircraft certification process,” said Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao. The Special Committee to Review FAA’s Aircraft Certification Process is an independent body whose findings and recommendations will be presented directly to the Secretary and the FAA Administrator. The Special Committee is being formed within the structure of the Safety Oversight and Certification Advisory Committee (SOCAC), created by Section 202 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. The SOCAC will provide advice and recommendations on issues facing the aviation community related to the FAA’s safety oversight and certification programs and activities. The SOCAC will be composed of individuals representing a diverse group of stakeholders in the aviation industry. The Department is soliciting candidates to be members of the SOCAC through the Federal Register. Air Force General (Ret.) Darren McDew, former head of the U.S. Transportation Command, and Captain Lee Moak, former President of the Air Line Pilots Association, have agreed to serve as the interim co-chairs of the Special Committee pending the appointment of other members. Members of the public who wish to be considered for membership on the SOCAC must submit the required information outlined in the Department’s Federal Register notice, a copy of which is available here.

  8. By Chuck Ross - Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence that the Trump campaign or any Trump associates conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election. That finding deals a heavy blow to Democrats and some in the media who have pushed at least seven different theories of collusion over the past two-plus years. Many of those theories derived from the infamous Steele dossier. Special Counsel Robert Mueller put a nail in the coffin for the numerous conspiracy theories that the Trump campaign worked with Russian operatives to influence the 2016 election. Over the past two years, at least seven main theories of collusion have appeared in the press and through the infamous Steele dossier. Former Trump associates Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen and Roger Stone were all alleged at various points to have colluded with Russia. The infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting was also alleged to be where collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia occurred. And then there was the case of Peter Smith, the late GOP operative who allegedly worked with hackers to track down Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails. The theories percolated in the media, often stoked by Democrats like California Rep. Adam Schiff, who said he saw “more than circumstantial evidence” of collusion. But Mueller dispelled those theories in a report of his 22-month investigation. “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote, according to Attorney General William Barr. Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his associates, or other Americans worked with Russians to release emails through WikiLeaks. He also found no evidence that Trump associates helped the Internet Research Agency, a Russian company that planted disinformation on American social media networks. Here are those seven conspiracy theories. Carter Page The Steele dossier alleges that Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser, took part in a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” between the Trump campaign and Russian leadership. According to former British spy Christopher Steele, Page was working under the direction of Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign chairman, to carry out the conspiracy. “The reason for using WikiLeaks was ‘plausible deniability’ and the operation had been conducted with the full knowledge and support of TRUMP and senior members of his campaign team,” alleged Steele in a memo in late July 2016. In exchange for the help, Trump’s team agreed to side with Russia on the Ukraine issue. According to Steele’s Aug. 10, 2016 memo, Page had “conceived and promoted” the idea of releasing stolen DNC emails through WikiLeaks in order to swing Democrats away from Hillary Clinton and towards Bernie Sanders. Steele also claimed that Page met in Moscow with two Kremlin insiders, Igor Sechin and Igor Diveykin, in early July 2016. Diveykin is alleged in the dossier to have told Page about blackmail material on both Trump and Hillary Clinton. Page has vehemently denied the allegations from the dossier, which the FBI used to obtain four surveillance warrants against the former Trump aide. Page was not charged in the Mueller investigation. George Papadopoulos The FBI’s initial collusion theory involved Papadopoulos, a 32-year-old energy consultant. On July 31, 2016, the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Papadopoulos based on a tip the bureau had received from the Australian government. Alexander Downer, the Australian High Commissioner to the U.K., had claimed that during a May 10, 2016 meeting in London, Papadopoulos told him that Russia had information on Hillary Clinton that it planned to release later in the campaign. Papadopoulos claims that two weeks before that meeting, he had breakfast in London with another diplomat, Joseph Mifsud, who told him that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of “thousands” of her emails. Papadopoulos insists that he did not tell anyone on the campaign about Mifsud’s remarks and that he did not view, handle or disseminate Clinton emails. He pleaded guilty on Oct. 5, 2017 to lying to the FBI about the extent of his contacts with Mifsud, but he was never charged with a more serious crime. He served a 14-day prison term and is releasing a book on Tuesday. Michael Cohen The former Trump lawyer is accused in the dossier of visiting Prague in August 2016 to meet with Kremlin officials for the purposes of paying off hackers. “The agenda comprised questions on how deniable cash payments were to be made to hackers who had worked in Europe under Kremlin direction against the CLINTON campaign,” reads Steele’s Dec. 13, 2016 memo. The dossier’s allegations against Cohen were viewed as some of the strongest claims of collusion that have surfaced during Russia gate. Cohen vehemently denied the claims ever since BuzzFeed published the dossier. On Feb. 27, after he had been sentenced in the special counsel’s probe to three years in prison, Cohen testified that he has never been to Prague. The testimony was seen as a knockout blow for the dossier’s credibility. Mueller’s findings seemingly ended all debate on the matter. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison on Dec. 12 on charges of tax evasion, bank fraud, illegal campaign contributions and making false statements to Congress. Paul Manafort In addition to being linked in the dossier to Carter Page, the former Trump campaign chairman was found to have sent cryptic emails during the campaign referencing Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch who was locked in a business dispute with Manafort. The special counsel also focused Manafort’s role in sending polling data during the campaign to two Russian oligarchs. “If he needs private briefings we can accommodate,” Manafort wrote in an email to an associate on July 7, 2016, The Washington Post has reported. In April 2016, shortly after he joined the Trump team, Manafort asked the same associate in an email how he could use his new position to “get whole.” The email has widely been interpreted as Manafort suggesting that he would use his job on the Trump campaign to settle his debts with Deripaska. But little came of Manafort’s links to Deripaska. Manafort was convicted in federal court in Virginia on Aug. 21, 2018 on charges related to his Ukraine consulting work. He cooperated with the special counsel after pleading guilty on Sept. 14, 2018 to working as an unregistered foreign agent of Ukraine. The special counsel’s office hinted at times that prosecutors had evidence that dealt with the core issues of the investigation, but they never presented the evidence during court hearings. Manafort was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison on March 13. Trump Tower Democrats have seized on a June 9, 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russians as the strongest verifiable evidence of collusion to emerge during the Russia saga. Trump Jr. accepted the meeting after receiving an email on June 3, 2016 from Rob Goldstone, a music publicist who worked for Russian pop star Emin Agalarov. In the email, Goldstone said that Agalarov’s billionaire father had met with Russia’s “Crown prosecutor” and wanted to offer the Trump campaign “with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very helpful to your father.” Trump Jr. enthusiastically accepted, writing: “If it is what you say I love it.” Goldstone responded to say that a “Russian government attorney” would fly to the U.S. for the meeting. Trump Jr. attended the meeting with Manafort and Jared Kushner. Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya attended along with Goldstone and several other Russians. All attendees have claimed that the meeting was a waste of time and that no information regarding the campaign was exchanged. Veselnitskaya provided the campaign with a short memo containing research compiled by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that, ironically, commissioned the Steele dossier. Veselnitskaya was working at the time with Fusion GPS on an investigation of Bill Browder, a London-based financier who spearheaded the Magnitsky Act, a sanctions law opposed by the Kremlin. Mueller investigated the Trump Tower meeting. Goldstone and other attendees appeared before Mueller’s grand jury. Goldstone responded to Mueller’s finding of no collusion in a message to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “After 2 years, Robert Mueller has delivered his report, stating there was no collusion in the 2016 Presidential election,” Goldstone said. “That includes my email to Donald Trump Jr. and the subsequent Trump Tower meeting…which as I have stated from the beginning, had nothing to do with collusion.” Veselnitskaya was indicted by prosecutors in Manhattan related to her work against Bill Browder. No other Trump Tower attendees other than Manafort were charged by the special counsel. Roger Stone/Jerome Corsi One theory of collusion that emerged over the past year was that Trump confidant Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi were somehow linked to WikiLeaks. Prosecutors keyed in on Stone because of tweets he sent and remarks he made in August 2016 that suggested he had some inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails stolen from Democrats. Stone said in interviews that he had communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. On Aug. 21, 2016 he tweeted that it would “soon [be] the Podesta’s time in the barrel.” Stone has insisted that he had no direct contact with WikiLeaks or Assange. He also claims that he did not know that Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails would be released by WikiLeaks in October 2016. Instead, he’s maintained that he received tips about the timing and seriousness of the email releases from Randy Credico, a left-wing activist who is friends with a WikiLeaks attorney. Stone released text messages that showed Credico providing information about the timing of the email releases. Corsi was a focus because of emails he sent in August 2016 in which he suggested he had inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans. “Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps,” Corsi wrote in the Aug. 2, 2016, email to Stone, seemingly referring to Assange, who lives under asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. “One shortly after I’m back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging.” “Time to let more than Podesta to be exposed as in bed w enemy if they are not ready to drop HRC.” Corsi was offered a plea deal by the special counsel but says he rejected it. Prosecutors wanted him to plead guilty to making false statements about exchanging WikiLeaks-related emails with Stone. Corsi claims that he deduced on his own that WikiLeaks had Podesta’s emails and that he had no contact with anyone affiliated with the group. Stone was indicted by the special counsel on Jan. 24, but not on charges related to conspiracy with Russia or WikiLeaks. He was instead charged with making false statements to the House Intelligence Committee regarding his discussions about WikiLeaks with associates and Trump campaign officials. Peter Smith One of the more bizarre collusion conspiracy theories involved Peter Smith, a GOP donor and political operative who lived in Chicago. The Wall Street Journal first reported in June 2017 that Smith worked with numerous conservative operatives and hackers to obtain the 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from her private server. The conspiracy theory came to encompass close Trump associates, including Michael Flynn. Smith wrote in correspondence that he had been in contact with Flynn regarding the effort to hunt down Clinton’s emails. The Wall Street Journal reported last year that Mueller was asking witnesses about the Smith operation. The story festered in the media, with follow-up reporting from BuzzFeed. Smith died by suicide on May 14, 2017. Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  9. By Chuck Ross - Mark Geragos, the celebrity attorney and CNN analyst, is the co-conspirator cited in a federal indictment handed down Monday against Michael Avenatti, according to The Wall Street Journal. Avenatti was indicted and arrested in New York on Monday on charges of wire fraud, bank fraud and attempting to extort $20 million from Nike Inc. According to the indictment, Avenatti threatened to publicly disparage Nike if the company did not pay him millions of dollars. The indictment was announced less than an hour after Avenatti announced that he was holding a press conference on Tuesday about Nike. According to The Journal, Avenatti’s co-conspirator was Geragos, a lawyer famous for representing clients like Michael Jackson, Jussie Smollett, and Colin Kaepernick. According to the indictment, Avenatti and the alleged co-conspirator met with lawyers from Nike’s lawyers at the firm Boies Schiller on March 19. The duo said that they would release information damaging to Nike unless the company paid them more than $20 million on top of $1.5 million to a client who Avenatti was representing. Boies Schiller lawyers agreed to record a follow-up conversation with Avenatti on behalf of federal prosecutors, according to one of The Journal’s sources. In the March 20 phone call, Avenatti again requested the $1.5 million for his client and also sought a lucrative retainer to conduct an internal investigation of Nike. Avenatti then threatened that if Nike failed to meet his demands, “I’ll go take ten billion dollars off your client’s market cap.” “I’m not ****ing around,” Avenatti said in the phone call, according to The Journal. CNN did not return a request for comment about Geragos, who is still listed on CNN’s site as a legal analyst. Avenatti was a frequent guest on CNN last year. The network put him on air to attack President Trump over Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Daniels issued a statement after Avenatti’s arrest saying that she was “saddened but not shocked” by the news. She suggested that she will release damning information about Avenatti in the near future. Avenatti was also indicted Monday in California on embezzlement and bank fraud charges related to a coffee business he operated.

  10. By Jason Hopkins - A caravan of mostly Central Americans began its trek toward the United States over the weekend, setting the stage for what will likely be another showdown between border enforcement officials and migrants. Around 1,200 migrants formed a caravan in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas and, following the same route as numerous groups before them, started their journey northward Saturday, according to Reuters. The U.S.-bound group is made of mostly Central Americans from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, but also includes Cuban migrants. The National Migration Institute — a department within the government of Mexico that tracks immigration — said the migrants were already within the country before they decided to assemble into a caravan near the country’s southern border with Guatemala. The latest caravan will likely further inflame tensions between these Central American countries and the White House. President Donald Trump, who has made increased immigration enforcement a hallmark of his executive agenda, has threatened Central American governments with repercussions for allowing migrants to freely make their way to the U.S. “… Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are doing nothing for the United States but taking our money. Word is that a new Caravan is forming in Honduras and they are doing nothing about it. We will be cutting off all aid to these 3 countries – taking advantage of U.S. for years!” Trump tweeted in late December upon the news of a 15,000-person caravan heading northward. The number of migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border has surged in recent months, with the Department of Homeland Security predicting nearly 100,000 apprehensions by the end of this month — which would mark the highest number in over a decade. Unlike in the early 1990s and early 2000s, the migrants getting apprehended today are mostly Central American and unaccompanied children, individuals who cannot be as easily deported as adult Mexican nationals. Border enforcement resources have been stretched thin because of this, forcing overcrowded Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities to release about 100,000 illegal aliens in the past three months. The vast number of migrants are also submitting so many asylum requests that border checkpoints have buckled under the weight. Officials with the El Paso Border Patrol sector revealed that they temporarily closed their highway checkpoints due to the record amount of asylum requests. The Trump administration has begun implementing what is known as the “remain in Mexico” policy in response to the immigration and asylum surge, The directive calls for foreign nationals who claim asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border to remain within the Mexican interior as their case runs through the U.S. immigration court system. The new policy is meant to curb abuse by asylum seekers who do not show up to their court date and simply disappear in the U.S. after making their claim.

  11. by David Wells"Idolatry, ancient and modern alike, consists in trusting some substitute for God to serve some uniquely divine function… Why do people choose the substitute over God himself? Probably the most important reason is that it obviates accountability to God. We can meet idols on our own terms because they are our own creations. They are safe, predictable, and controllable; they are, in Jeremiah’s colorful language, the “scarecrows in a cucumber field” (10:5). They are portable and completely under the user’s control. They offer nothing like the threat of a God who thunders from Sinai and whose providence in this world so often appears to us to be incomprehensible and dangerous. People who “remain in the center of their lives and loyalties, autonomous architects of their own futures,” Keyes argues, thereby avoid coming face to face with God and his truth. They need face only themselves. That is the appeal of idolatry." - David Wells, God in the Wasteland (Eerdmans 1994) View the full article
  12. By Mary Margaret Olohan - House Democrats cut Republican Representative Richard Hudson out of new workforce legislation he had been working on with them, eliminating yet another opportunity for bipartisan collaboration. But Democrats like Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) express no interest in anything but pushing ahead with Democratic legislation – and after 25 years of being mostly in the House minority, Doyle thinks it is high time. “I don’t have thin skin about this, but when they were in charge, they had the rules,” Doyle told Politico. “Now we’re in charge, and maybe some of them don’t understand that yet.” Republican Richard Hudson expressed frustration with Democrat Bobby Rush for altering a bill the two had co-authored to introduce new workforce training programs. Rush has effectively removed Hudson from planning this bill. “He reintroduced it, and he’s added all this money to it, and didn’t consult me,” Hudson told Politico. “We didn’t mean to exclude you from the process. We’d love to work with you.” Hudson was told when he questioned why he had been excluded. But Hudson is still waiting to hear when exactly Rush would like to work with him again. Republicans like Hudson fume over the lack of collaboration in areas that would enable Republicans and Democrats to easily compromise. Other Republicans have also expressed frustration at the short periods of time they are given to look over bills, claiming that this indicates Democrats have no real interest in collaboration. “Bipartisanship is asking for my input, not just for my vote,” said Texas Rep. Michael Burgess. “Giving a member less than 24 hours to sign onto a piece of legislation they have never seen is discourteous, especially when we have said at each hearing thus far this Congress that we are willing to work in a bipartisan way.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  13. By Molly Prince - House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer defended the American-Israeli alliance on Sunday, taking aim at Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for her repeated anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements. “I am an American who believes passionately in the idea of Israel, in the State of Israel, and in the essential right of Jews to have a place of sanctuary in their homeland after millennia of hatred, prejudice, exclusion, dehumanization, and attempted annihilation,” Hoyer said during a speech at American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) 2019 conference. “The State of Israel, founded upon that profound and transcendent premise, must never be allowed to fail.” Hoyer, the second-ranking Democrat in the House, explained that he is not Jewish and neither are the majority of his constituents, but that he has traveled to Israel multiple times and witnessed firsthand “the courage of its people and their enduring spirit to make their country flourish.” “I stand with Israel, proudly and unapologetically. So, when someone accuses American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, I say: accuse me,” the Maryland representative continued. “I am part of a large, bipartisan coalition in Congress supporting Israel. I tell Israel’s detractors: accuse us. And millions of Americans, regardless of race or faith or partisan label, stand with Israel because they understand why our relationship with Israel is so important. Accuse us all!” Hoyer’s statements come less than a month after Omar accused Jews of having a “dual loyalty” to the U.S. and Israel, an ages-old anti-Semitic canard. The Muslim congresswoman faced massive backlash from both sides of the aisle including from Democratic leadership. Days later, the House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution that was intended as a reprimand for the congresswoman’s anti-Semitic comments. Hoyer also took aim the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. The Anti-Defamation League describes the movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence.” “When the curtain is pulled back, everyone can see what that movement truly is: a front for delegitimizing the Jewish people’s right to self-determination,” Hoyer said, further noting Omar Barghouti, the founder and leader of the BDS movement, stated that “Jews are not a people.” Omar’s time in congressional office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism. She has defended her anti-Israel statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings,” and she is on record stating that Israel is not a democracy. She also gave an interview to a host that referred to Israel as the “Jewish ISIS” and mocked how Americans speak about al-Qaeda and Hezbollah. Interestingly, Omar waited until after she won her congressional election to reveal her support BDS. “Democracy only works when citizens are educated and informed. As advocates for truth, we here in this room must educate and inform our fellow Americans about what BDS really aims to do: destroy a partner democracy and one of America’s most faithful allies,” Hoyer continued. “Together, we will defeat BDS.” “We proudly stand with Israel,” Hoyer concluded. “Accuse us.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  15. By Kevin Daley - Federal prosecutors indicted attorney and celebrity Trump foe Michael Avenatti early Monday afternoon. Federal authorities say that Avenatti has been charged with bank fraud and wire fraud by attempting “to extract more than $20 million in payments from a publicly traded company by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met.” The company in question is Nike, the sportswear and apparel giant. The company’s shares plummeted after Avenatti cryptically announced on Twitter Monday that he would detail “a major high school/college basketball scandal” which Nike perpetrated at a Tuesday press conference. Avenatti formerly represented Stephanie Clifford, known popularly by the industry name “Stormy Daniels” in her bid to defeat a non-disclosure agreement pertaining to her alleged relationship with President Donald Trump. Clifford and Avenatti have since parted ways. A press conference will follow Monday afternoon detailing the indictment at greater length. This is breaking news.
