ICE warned New Jersey. Update to this story.
More here.

Via Washington Examiner:

Foreign nationals from 24 countries — including four people with Interpol warrants for their arrests — were among the 105 arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement during a five-day sweep.

The agency announced the arrests Friday in a news release.

“Our focus has been and will continue to be on arrests of illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes or those who pose a threat to public safety,” said John Tsoukaris, director of the Newark field office.

The people arrested ranged in age from 18 to 65 years old. The agency said more than 80 percent had either prior convictions or pending charges for a variety of crimes, including sexual assault on a minor, child abuse, possession of narcotics, distribution of narcotics, extortion, DUI, fraud, domestic violence, theft, possession of a weapon, robbery, promoting prostitution, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, endangering the welfare of a child, credit card fraud, insurance fraud, shoplifting, and illegal re-entry.

The agency said the pre-planned sweep targeted criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and other immigration violators.

Comey: It Was ‘Not Necessary’ To Verify Dossier Before Using It To Get Warrants

Wow, can’t begin to tell you how wrong his response is. And if I were representing him, I would be telling him to shut up right about now because he’s digging himself a huge hole. Question is will anyone pursue him for this? And this is the same source that they had already said they shouldn’t be using because he leaked to the media so even his reliability argument is nonsense.

Via Daily Caller:

Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress Friday that the FBI had not verified the Steele dossier prior to relying on the salacious document to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

According to a transcript of Comey’s testimony released on Saturday, the former FBI chief also asserted that it was “not necessary” for the FBI to assess the sources that dossier author Christopher Steele used to compile his report, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.

“I think I’ve dealt with warrants where you just identify that your primary [confidential informant], or primary source, has subsources, and so long as the court is aware of that phenomenon and that you’re speaking to the reliability of the primary source, to my mind, that’s a totally legit warrant application,” he said.

Comey told lawmakers that “work was ongoing” by the time he was fired on May 9, 2017, to “to replicate, either rule in or rule out” as much of the dossier as possible.

2020: Top Liz Warren Adviser Meeting With Robert “Beto” O’Rourke

A fake Indian and a fake Hispanic.

Via Breitbart:

According to a Friday evening report in the Washington Post, Mindy Myers, “who was one of the primary architects of Warren’s political rise and has remained one of her close advisers,” has reportedly “been in talks with several rival campaigns” and is planning to meet with O’Rourke.

Myers was expected to have a top role in Warren’s potential presidential campaign, but it seems like even some of Warren’s most important advisers are seeing the writing on the wall about her 2020 chances.

This week, the New York Times conceded that Warren’s botched DNA test and subsequent bungled rollout angered left-wing activists and people of color who are so critical to the Democrats’ coalition. The Times revealed that Warren has “yet to allay criticism from grass-roots progressive groups, liberal political operatives and other potential 2020 allies who complain that she put too much emphasis on the controversial field of racial science” and played into President Donald Trump’s hands.

“Advisers close to Ms. Warren say she has privately expressed concern that she may have damaged her relationships to Native American groups and her own standing with progressive activists, particularly those who are racial minorities,” the Times further noted. “Several outside advisers are even more worried: They say they believe a plan should be made to repair that damage, possibly including a strong statement of apology.”

The Times also pointed out that left-wing groups believe Warren’s disastrous DNA stunt resulted because, like many other supposedly oh-so-woke white Democrats, she had an inner circle of advisers that looked like her and did not “reflect the racial diversity of the Democratic electorate.”

He’s Back: Kid Rock To Walk In Leiper’s Fork Christmas Parade On Dec. 15

Nashville has become politically correct.

Via The Tennessean:

After missing his chance in Nashville, Kid Rock will be a special guest in the Leiper’s Fork Christmas Parade later this month in Williamson County.

The parade, previously scheduled for Saturday, was postponed until Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. due to inclement weather expected this weekend.

Rock reached out to organizers in hopes of participating in the parade, said Laura Musgrave, director of the Christmas parade in Leiper’s Fork.

“He has some friends out here, and we’re wild and wacky, eclectic and fun,” Musgrave said. “This parade has never been about politics — it’s a Christmas parade.”

The grand marshal will be John Schneider, who played Bo Duke in the TV show “Dukes of Hazzard.” The parade will lead off on the village’s Main Street.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Richie, caused a stir last week after he appeared on Fox & Friends and made remarks that seemed to downplay complaints about racism and homophobia as political correctness. He then called Joy Behar, co-host of The View, a “b—-.”

Go, 2.0!

Via Daily Caller:

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Saturday that if he takes over as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as is expected, he will “get to the bottom” of whether the FBI misled the federal surveillance court to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“In my view the process used to obtain a FISA warrant – and its multiple renewals – against Carter Page should disturb every American,” Graham tweeted.

“I intend to get to the bottom of what happened if I am Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

John Rich Asks Fellow Country Artists Dierks Bentley, Tyler Hubbard To Offer Real ‘Solution’ To Gun Control

They only have talking points.

Via Fox News:

John Rich is challenging his fellow country music stars to a friendly debate over the Second Amendment.

Rich, one half of the country duo Big & Rich, has never been one to shy away from politics. And when the “Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy” singer heard his friends and fellow artists Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard were part of a new push for gun control, the proud Texan was really interested to hear their side.

“Successful artists, while they’re only one person, or a couple of people, whatever it is, they have millions of fans,” the 44-year-old told Fox News exclusively. “So when they speak, those millions of fans hear what they say.”

Rich said he knows Bentley and Hubbard personally and has worked with them previously. He stressed that he has nothing but respect for them — but he does want to engage them in a conversation over the Second Amendment.

“The issue with gun control, you look at it and you go, ‘These maniacs, these vicious people are taking a weapon and shooting people with it.’ And then the flip side of that is, right now, I’m in New York City and back in Nashville is my wife and my two little kids,” Rich said. “And if somebody breaks into my house, which rifle would you suggest I tell my wife to grab?

“Which one should she grab? The one that gives her the best chance at protecting her and my kids or the one that doesn’t?” Rich asked fellow country music artists. “Those are the types of questions I would like to ask them.”

USA Today Goes After Heisman Trophy Winner For Tweets Made When He Was 15

He made four tweets when he was joking with his friends at 15. USA Today trawls his Twitter timeline and throws them out at him on the day he wins the Heisman. He immediately apologized and deleted them, but why are such tweets news?

Hours after Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy, several homophobic tweets from his past resurfaced.

As a teenager, Murray used an anti-gay slur in a tweet to friends, USA Today reported. Oklahoma University did not respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.

The tweets were deleted from Murray’s account early Sunday.

The re-discovered tweets put Murray, 21, in the company of other athletes finding themselves in a negative light just as they achieve success.

Comey Says Trump Wasn’t Among ‘Four Americans’ Targeted In FBI Probe

Trump and collusion were a red herring.

Via Fox News:

An FBI counterintelligence probe into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election initially targeted “four Americans,” but not Republican nominee Donald Trump nor his campaign, according to former FBI Director James Comey.

The news was revealed Saturday in a 235-page transcript published by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., after hours of closed-door testimony by Comey on Friday.

Comey said “at least some” of the people targeted were affiliated with the Trump campaign in some form, but Trump himself was not under investigation into whether the four individuals colluded with Russia to tip the election in Trump’s favor.

“We opened investigations on four Americans to see if there was any connection between those four Americans and the Russian interference effort,” Comey told Gowdy. “And those four Americans did not include the candidate. At least some of them were. The FBI and the Department of Justice have not confirmed the names of those folks publicly, which is why I’m not going into the specifics.”

Comey told Rep. John Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican, that the FBI suspected the four individuals may have helped Russia interfere in the election.

“[A]t the time a defensive briefing was done for candidate Trump, do you know if the FBI had any evidence that anyone associated with the Trump campaign had colluded or conspired or coordinated with Russia in any way?” Ratcliffe asked.

“I don’t know the dates. … I don’t know whether it was before late July when we opened the four counterintelligence files, or not,” Comey replied. “And so, if it was after July 29th, then the answer would be, yes, we had some reason to suspect that there were Americans who might have assisted the Russians.”[…]

When asked if former President Barack Obama obstructed justice when he commented that Clinton’s use of a private email server lacked criminal intent, Comey said he didn’t see it that way, but it did concern him.

“So, if it doesn’t rise to the level of obstruction, how would you characterize the Chief Executive saying that the target of an investigation that was ongoing simply made a mistake and lacked the requisite criminal intent?” Gowdy asked.

“It concerns me whenever the Chief Executive comments on pending criminal investigations, something we see a lot today, which is why it concerned me when President Obama did it,” Comey replied.

Comey Transcript Released: Ex-FBI Boss Claims Not To Know, Remember Key Details

So either he has serious dementia or he’s a liar.

Via Fox News:

Former FBI Director James Comey claimed “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember” in response to dozens of questions concerning key details in the Russia probe, according to a lengthy transcript released Saturday of his closed-door interview with congressional lawmakers.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., published the 235-page transcript as a part of an agreement with Comey.

The former bureau boss frustrated GOP lawmakers during Friday’s session, in large part because his lawyers urged him not to answer numerous questions. Comey is expected to return later in the month for another round, though blasted Republicans on his way out for what he called a “desperate attempt to find anything that can be used to attack the institutions of justice investigating this president.”

But while Comey insisted in the interview that “we never investigated the Trump campaign for political purposes,” the transcript shows he claimed ignorance or memory lapses in response to questions concerning key details and events in the Russia investigation, which some GOP lawmakers continue to claim was improperly conducted.

Clemson Restaurant Gets Grilled Over ‘Offensive’ “Tijuana Chicken Sandwich” Sign

Marketing genius.

Via Campus Reform:

A restaurant near Clemson University is under fire after naming one of its sandwiches the “Tijuana Chicken Sandwich” and then using language likening the sandwich to the migrant caravan at the U.S. southern border.

The sign at the restaurant “Loose Change” described the sandwich as “Big enough to feed a caravan. Built high enough with smoked chicken, lettuce, tomato, pepperjack, bacon + guac. Bordered with a side of pub chips. So good, it should be illegal.”

The sign prompted negative feedback from student organizations, including the Clemson Undergraduate Student Government, which called the sign “very distasteful.”

“Clemson Undergraduate Student Government denounces the incident that occurred last week with the sign posted outside of Loose Change, a restaurant in downtown Clemson,” the statement by the CUSG read. “The sign was offensive and very distasteful. CUSG stands for the voices of all students, and it is concerning that Loose Change would block the social media accounts of several student organizations after they expressed concerns with the incident. This situation greatly disappoints us, as we will not stand for any voice to be censored.”[…]

Morgan Bailey, a conservative Clemson student, told Campus Reform that while the sign was in bad taste, the company has a right to block whomever it wants on social media.

“While the sign was in bad taste, it’s mild compared to what could’ve been said. The language used is common language seen in the media today,” Bailey said. “People getting worked up over a private business putting out an advertisement and blocking people on social media don’t understand that a private business has the right to do just that.”

The restaurant’s Yelp page is now being monitored by a support team “for content related to media reports.”

Chick-Fil-A Creates Special Restaurant In Philadelphia For Military Members Who Can’t Go To Army-Navy Game

Chick-fil-A had a solution for military members who could not get tickets to the Army-Navy game.

The beloved fried chicken house opened a special pop-up restaurant in Philadelphia for active duty military, veterans and their families to watch the storied game. The pop-up served food and drink from a special menu and featured games and entertainment.

Chick-fil-A is an official partner of the 119th Army-Navy game.

Comey’s Confession: Dossier Not Verified Before, Or After, FISA Warrant

Which means they had nothing.

Via The Hill:

Many people I know in law enforcement circles shuddered when James Comey tweeted recently that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker “may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.”

To them, Comey’s Twitter attack crossed that “blue line” – the one that real cops abide by, to never criticize fellow officers and to always have their backs.

I had a different reaction. I found it odd that a man who started his Twitter career by quoting Bible verses about justice might have forgotten one of the golden utterances from Jesus himself: “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.”

The failures of Comey’s remarkably turbulent and short tenure as FBI director were on display again Friday on Capitol Hill, when he was interviewed in a closed-door session by two House committees. Republican lawmakers were aghast at his sudden lack of recollection of key events.

He didn’t seem to know that his own FBI was using No. 4 Justice Department official Bruce Ohr as a conduit to keep collecting intelligence from Christopher Steele after the British intel operative was fired by the bureau for leaking and lying. In fact, Comey didn’t seem to remember knowing that Steele had been terminated, according to sources in the room.

“His memory was so bad I feared he might not remember how to get out of the room after the interview,” one lawmaker quipped. Lamented another: “It was like he suddenly developed dementia or Alzheimer’s, after conveniently remembering enough facts to sell his book.”

Faintness of memory is a common symptom for witnesses under the intense spotlight. But lawmakers were relieved when Comey could remember one fact that is essential to understanding if his FBI acted appropriately in the investigation of Donald Trump and Russia.

The towering ex-FBI boss confessed that the FBI had not corroborated much of the Steele dossier before it was submitted as evidence to a secret court to support a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the final weeks of the election.

Trump Insists ‘No Collusion,’ Calls For Mueller Investigation To End Following Filings In Cohen, Manafort Cases

Not a word of collusion in either filing.

Via Washington Examiner:

President Trump called for an end to the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, a day after a series of court filings connected him with two felonies.

The Mueller probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election has been estimated by various sources to cost less than $20 million, though no official figures are available.

Trump’s defense Saturday came after court sentencing documents in separate cases against Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen were filed by federal prosecutors in New York and by Mueller. The memo for the New York case, for which Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges related to campaign finance violations and tax fraud, said Cohen made two payments during the 2016 campaign to women who had affairs with Trump “in coordination with and at the direction of” the then-candidate, now president. It called for Cohen to face substantial prison time.

Clashes Over Immigration Outside Canada’s Parliament

Trudeau sold out to the UN.

Ottawa (AFP) – Right-wing protesters opposed to Canada joining a UN pact for better regulating worldwide migration clashed Saturday with pro-immigration groups in the biting cold outside parliament.

An estimated 200 members of far-right groups and 100 counter-protesters lobbed expletive-laced insults at each other on the snow-covered lawn, resulting in one arrest.

Scuffles erupted just as the event got underway, but riot police quickly separated the two sides.

The crowd then began chanting “Reject immigration pact,” but was drowned out by shouts of “Shame” and “Refugees welcome, racists go home.”

Sylvain Brouillette, spokesman for the protesters, said the United Nations pact risks eroding sovereign immigration policies — a view echoed by opposition Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, and conservative politicians in other countries, but roundly dismissed by its proponents.

“Canada was built on immigration. We have learned to live together and we have found a way to do it well, so we don’t need a UN migration pact to tell us what to do and change a system that works,” Brouillette said.

Passerby Aditya Rao stopped to listen to the arguments but concluded that the protesters were misguided.

“It boggles the mind,” he told AFP. “These people are grumbling about all the chaotic migration, but at the same time are complaining about an effort to make it orderly and safe. It’s atrocious.”

The non-binding pact is due to be formally adopted at a December 10-11 conference in Marrakesh, Morocco.

It lays down 23 objectives to open up legal migration and better manage migratory flows, as the number of people on the move worldwide has increased to 250 million, or three percent of the world population.

Among its principles are the protection of human rights, including those specific to children, and recognition of national sovereignty.

Its objectives also include helping countries deal with migration by sharing standards to improve information and integration.

The US quit talks on the pact last December, and several countries including Hungary, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Australia also rejected it.

California Dems Pushing For Medicaid For Illegal Immigrants

Have they fallen into the sea yet? Sounds like they’re well on their way.

Via Washington Examiner:

A California lawmaker has pledged to re-introduce a bill that would allow adults who live in the state illegally to receive medical care paid for by the government.

State Assembly member Joaquin Arambula, a Democrat and a doctor, announced the plans Monday as the legislature convened at the state capitol, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Should the bill advance, California would become the first state to extend Medicaid coverage regardless of immigration status. State projections for last year’s bill found that 1.8 million people in California are uninsured and reside there illegally; roughly 1.2 million would qualify for Medi-Cal, the name of the state’s Medicaid program.

Liberal Alan Dershowitz Thinks Mueller Report Will Turn Up ‘Political Sins,’ But No Proof Of Crimes

The investigation is a hit job against Trump.

Via Daily Caller:

Liberal attorney Alan Dershowitz responded to Friday’s news of court filings in the case against former Trump attorney Michael Cohen by calling it a “coming attraction” to the Mueller report results.

The Harvard law professor told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday that, while the report will likely make “a circumstantial case for arguably political sins,” he does not “see any crimes.”

“Well it would only be criminal if for example — this is a hypothetical — the campaign or President Trump or somebody in his behalf offered Putin a penthouse apartment at the top of the tower in exchange for getting a permit to build the tower,” Dershowitz told Carlson. “That would be arguably criminal under the federal corrupt practices acts.”

“Short of that, it’s very, very hard to see this,” he continued. “I think what we’re seeing is a coming attraction to what the report will be, and I think the report will set out a circumstantial case based on all the lying that’s taking place, a circumstantial case for arguably political sins, but I don’t see any crimes.”

Dershowitz then detailed the “sins,” like “collusion” and “using information given by Russia to Wikileaks” that are not actually crimes, but will be in the report to smear President Trump.

9th Circuit Blocks Trump’s Effort To Stop False Asylum Claims By Illegal Aliens

Claims for asylum have more than tripled despite the fact that most don’t qualify. But they know they will then be released into the U.S. and can just disappear.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a temporary restraining order against a Trump administration policy that denies asylum to illegal aliens.

The 2-1 decision is the latest setback the 9th Circuit has rendered to President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda.

“Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench,’ neither may the executive legislate from the oval office,” Judge Jay Bybee wrote for the majority. Former President George W. Bush appointed Bybee to the bench, and the judge has a conservative reputation.
