Via Fox News:

A World War II veteran, who spent more than a year as a prisoner of war, was awarded the Purple Heart at 94 years of age.

Max Bergen, of Chippewa Falls, Wis., said he was overwhelmed and stunned by the honor when he received the medal on Friday, the Leader-Telegram reported.

Whether it’s celebrating a promotion or a well-deserved break, Vegas is calling your name.
“I don’t know if words can accurately describe how I feel,” he told the Leader-Telegram. “It took a long time for it to sink in. I didn’t realize it would mean so much to me, but it does. I’m just grateful for all the work done for me.”

In 1943, Bergen joined the U.S. Army and served on the Army Air Forces bomb squadron when he was shot down over Germany in 1944.

‘Angel Mom’ Saves Trump Saved Her From Suicide After Illegal Alien Killed Her Son

It doesn’t matter to Democrats that this legal immigrant is separated forever from her son.

Via Daily Caller:

Sabine Durden, an angel mom, said Friday that President Trump saved her from committing suicide after an illegal immigrant killed her only son.

Durden said at an event for angel families that she is a legal immigrant and always sought to protect her son from harm.

“And I didn’t drag my son … through borders, over deserts, I didn’t place him in harm’s way. I protected my child from harm but I couldn’t do that on July 12, 2012,” she began.

Durden’s son, Dominic, was killed when an illegal immigrant took a wrong turn driving an unlicensed truck and struck him on his motorcycle. The illegal immigrant had a record of drunk driving.

House Judiciary Committee Subpoenas Peter Strzok

Let the games begin!

Via Daily Caller:

Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte on Friday subpoenaed former FBI Agent Peter Strzok to appear for a deposition next week.

Goodlatte issued the subpoena even though Strzok’s attorney said that Strzok is willing to testify voluntarily before Congress.

“We regret that the Committee felt it necessary to issue a subpoena when we repeatedly informed them that Pete was willing to testify voluntarily,” Strzok lawyer Aitan Goelman said in a statement after Goodlatte issued the subpoena.

A statement on the Judiciary Committee’s website said that the panel has “repeatedly requested to interview Mr. Strzok regarding his role in certain decisions, but he has yet to appear.”

As the FBI’s deputy chief of counterintelligence, Strzok oversaw the bureau’s investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to the Russian government. He was also a top investigator on the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton email probe.

Jennifer Lopez Spreads Hoax Photos On Border Situation

Here’s the thing. Unless Jennifer Lopez is thinking of breaking the law, putting her childs fate in the hands of smugglers and leaving her other children behind in the process, she has nothing in common with this irresponsible mother. But she is irresponsible in spreading these false pictures.

Via Daily Wire:

Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez joined in the chorus of emotional outrage over the border crisis by sharing two hoax photographs.

Starting on her Instagram account, Jennifer Lopez shared the infamous photo of the crying Honduran girl, the same one that Time magazine used on its cover to portray President Trump as a heartless ogre. The powerful photo, one that has pulled people’s heartstrings to the point of generating $18 million for a Facebook fundraiser, has since been outed as a fake, not in authenticity but in context.

Leading Mexican Presidential Candidate Calls For Mexicans To Flood Into The US, “It’s A Human Right”

Alrighty now. That will go over well.

Via Daily Caller:

Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans.

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far the frontrunner.

FBI Deliberately Ignored ‘Golden Emails,’ Crucial Abedin Messages And More

They declared they weren’t going to prosecute her, twice, but couldn’t possibly have looked at all the emails they recovered from the Weiner laptop which encompassed all the emails from Clinton, including the mysteriously missing ones that she never turned over that were under subpoena. When will we see those?

Via Daily Caller:

The Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Hillary Clinton have a HUGE Weiner problem that is even bigger than we first realized.

According to the recently released inspector general report, on September 28 and 29, 2016 the New York office of the FBI immediately reported to the Washington headquarters its discovery of, first, 141,000 and then 350,000 emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner — also known as “Carlos Danger,” a now-convicted sex offender. Mr. Weiner is the husband of Hillary Clinton’s inseparable aide Huma Abedin.

Now we know by October 4, the New York office had found 700,000 emails. The New York agents had seen and reported to FBI leadership they had seen email headers, all domain names, Mrs. Clinton’s initials on one sensitive but not classified document, and the missing BlackBerry backups.

The New York agents described it as the “entire file” of all Hillary Clinton emails from 2006 until 2016, including the BlackBerry messages that Comey himself had referred to as “the golden emails.”

Mother Of Crying Child Was Deported In 2013

She’s actually a perfect example of all the lies the media tells about illegal aliens. Two-time illegal entry, which is a felony. Took a 2 year old through that danger, and left her husband, who has a good job, at home with the other 3 kids.

Via Daily Caller:

The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according to ICE.

TIME Magazine pasted the image of the young girl crying as President Donald Trump looked down on her, attempting to symbolize the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy at the border that leads to family separations.

The father of the child later revealed that the girl was never separated from the mother and that the child was only briefly set down so that border patrol agents could perform a pat down. The mother also left three other children behind in Honduras. (RELATED: Crying Honduran Child Who Became The Face Of Border Family Separation Was Never Separated From Family)

As more information comes out about the situation of Sandra Sanchez and her 2-year-old daughter, ICE confirmed on Friday that Sanchez was previously deported in 2013.

11 MS-13 Members, All Illegal Except One, Charged in Kidnappings, Deaths of Teens

But yeah, they don’t exist and they’re no problem.

Via Fox News:

Eleven MS-13 gang members – all of whom are illegal immigrants except one – are facing life in prison after being charged in the kidnappings and deaths of two teens whose bodies were dug up in a Virginia park last year.

The ages of the male gang members charged Friday ranged from 20 to 27. All of them are from El Salvador and only one – who is believed to have fled the country – is not in police custody, according to NBC Washington.

Police uncovered the bodies of 17-year-old Edvin Escobar Mendez and 14-year-old Sergio Arita Triminio at Holmes Run Park in March 2017 after receiving a tip.

The two teens disappeared just weeks apart the prior year.

Democratic Candidate Gets Arrested At Detention Center After Refusing To Leave

They’re not supposed to let people in to see the kids, they’re not supposed to violate their privacy. But Democrats want to use the kids as political footballs.

Via Daily Caller:

Maine’s Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate was arrested outside a detention center in Texas on Friday morning for refusing to leave the premises after being told he was not allowed in.

The nominee, Zak Ringelstein, announced Wednesday that he was traveling to McAllen, Texas, to deliver personal items, including toys, books and blankets to the immigrant children currently being held there.

A Facebook Live video, which contains the arrest, shows Ringelstein waiting outside the center, being told he cannot go in, and then arguing with border patrol agents in the parking lot.

Ringelstein told the border agents that he believes, without going into the facility, that the children are being deprived of water, books, blankets, and other essential items.

Federal Court Rules Obama Administration Consumer Bureau Structure Unconstitutional

Did a change in leadership sway the decision?

Via The Hill:

A federal district judge ruled Thursday that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) violates the Constitution, countering a January ruling from a federal appeals court.

Judge Loretta Preska of the Southern District of New York ruled that the CFPB’s creation as an independent agency with a director that could only be dismissed for wrongdoing was unconstitutional.

In January, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the CFPB’s structure was constitutional, reversing a 2016 verdict issued by a panel of the court’s judges. The appeals court’s initial opinion, written by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sought to fix the issue by ruling that the CFPB director could be fired at will.

Preska, an appointee of former President George H.W. Bush, concurred with part of the D.C. appellate court’s initial ruling against the CFPB, which held that the agency “is unconstitutionally structured because it is an independent agency that exercises substantial executive power and is headed by a single Director.”

She ruled that the entire section of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act that established the CFPB should be stricken, and she dismissed the CFPB from the case, which was filed in May 2017 by then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D). Preska did not issue an order to shut down the bureau.

Acting CFPB Director Mick Mulvaney last month sought to protect the agency’s involvement in its case against RD Legal Funding, which was initiated by his predecessor, Richard Cordray. The suit claims that RD Legal scammed both survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and former NFL players battling the effects of severe concussions out of monetary compensation for their injuries.

While the CFPB is now dismissed from the lawsuit, Preska ruled that New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood (D), who replaced Schneiderman in May, could pursue the case against RD Legal under Dodd-Frank.

Thursday’s ruling raises the likelihood that the Supreme Court will take up the issue of the CFPB’s constitutionality in an upcoming term. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals will also hear a challenge to the CFPB’s constitutionality, and a ruling against the bureau could force the high court to reconcile the conflicting opinions.

The CFPB was created by Dodd-Frank to crack down on predatory lending, enforce consumer protection laws and police the financial services industry against unfair, deceptive and abusive practices.

The bureau was designed and staffed primarily by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when she served as a special adviser to former President Obama before her 2012 election to the Senate.

Duluth Restaurants Face Backlash For Hosting Fox News

Moonbats flocking to the attack.

Via Twin Cities Com:

It only took 10 minutes before the Uncle Loui’s Cafe Facebook page was bombarded with comments.

The owners had just announced they would be hosting Fox & Friends on Thursday for their morning news segment.

“There were people that were congratulating us and then there were some people that were very angry,” said Matt Berthiaume, the general manager of the cafe. “There were some regulars that come in and now don’t want to eat here anymore, which is unfortunate.”

Berthiaume said hosting the morning news segment is an attempt to increase exposure for the restaurant. Instead, the simple business decision turned their Facebook page into a brouhaha of invective being hurled back and forth.

“We’ll see what happens. There were negative comments and people who had never been in here before were slandering the cleanliness of this restaurant,” Berthiaume said.

Coinciding with President Donald Trump’s visit to Duluth on Wednesday, the network called the local eatery last week hoping to broadcast from the restaurant the day after the rally. Berthiaume said he thinks his mother and Uncle Loui’s owner, Debra Strop, didn’t fully realize how some people would perceive the decision.

“My mom’s so apolitical — she just wants to feed people,” Berthiaume said. “She just wants people to come in. It’s great exposure for our restaurant, which I can’t blame her for. If it wasn’t us, it’d be somebody else.”

Berthiaume and Strop wanted to grow their restaurant’s brand, but instead have spent much of the past few days in damage control mode.

In one instance, Berthiaume said he messaged a man who was saying rude things to people, including his step-grandmother who was supporting the restaurant online.

“That’s the worst part. People just assume,” he said. “No one asks questions like ‘Hey, what’s up?’ or ‘Are you supporting this?’”

FRIDAY OPEN THREAD…

Charles Krauthammer Dead At 68…

RIP

Via Fox News:

Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators, died Thursday. He was 68.

His death had been expected after he wrote a heartbreaking letter to colleagues, friends and viewers on June 8 that said in part “I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me…

“Recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.” The letter continued, “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living.”

Dem Senator Nelson Says They Will Give Trump Money For Wall

Via Free Beacon:

Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) said Thursday that Democrats would give President Donald Trump funding for the wall he’s long promised to build along the southern border as part of a larger immigration package.

Democrats made the overture before. However, Trump and the Democrats couldn’t reach an agreement in this year’s budget battle when the White House didn’t get its desired wall funding in exchange for protections for “Dreamers,” the term for children of illegal immigrants living in the United States.

With immigration again a hot topic after the uproar over the Trump administration enforcing separation of illegal immigrant parents from their children at the border, Nelson told CNN he wanted “comprehensive immigration reform” that included addressing that problem for good.

Politico Runs Op-Ed From Stephen Miller’s Third Grade Classmate Complaining He Was Untidy

Remember how they went after Romney and tried to turn him into a sociopath?

Via Free Beacon:

Politico Magazine on Friday published an op-ed written by a former classmate of Stephen Miller detailing the quirks of the now-White House policy adviser when he was in third grade.

“I Sat on the Other Side of Stephen Miller’s First Wall,” wrote John Muller, who attended Franklin Elementary School in Santa Monica, California, with Miller, a key architect of the Trump administration’s immigration policies, decades ago.

“It’s hard to say how much a kid’s behavior in third grade can really tell you about the inner workings of his soul,” Muller admited, before plowing on. He wrote that it was difficult to make Miller laugh, and remembered that Miller did not laugh at all at a story he wrote about a chicken.

“Stephen Miller’s First Wall” was evidently a boundary made of white masking tape he used to keep their desks separated, which Muller said “struck me as odd.”

Texas Capital Passes Resolution Directing Police to Avoid Misdemeanor Arrests

Oh, that’ll work. Austin is a liberal haven in an otherwise red state.

Via Free Beacon:

The city council of Austin, Texas, unanimously passed a resolution last week directing police to make fewer arrests for non-violent crimes.

The measure directs police to avoid arrests for misdemeanors, including those for “smoking marijuana, having drug paraphernalia, and taking part in petty theft,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Greg Casar, an Austin City Councilman, pushed for the resolution because he said the non-violent arrests targeted minorities.

“Poor people of color in our city are over-punished and over-incarcerated,” Casar said. “If people are being arrested less, we can also prevent people from being put in the deportation pipeline.”

ABC Approves ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff Without Roseanne Barr

John Goodman is a great actor, but it’s pretty hard to have a show with the central pivotal character missing.

Via Free Beacon:

ABC announced Thursday that it will go forward with a spinoff of the popular sitcom “Roseanne,” only without the eponymous character.

The show’s star, Roseanne Barr, was let go and the show was canceled abruptly three weeks ago following a racist tweet by Barr, but ABC said in a release that the network is starting a new show about the Conner family without her.

Barr stoked outrage on social media after she compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, and she will not be involved in the new show, tentatively titled “The Conners.”

“Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series,” ABC said.
