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.

Hillary Clinton’s Group Hauls in $1 Million Off Border ‘Humanitarian Crisis’

And not one penny would actually go to helping the situation that was effectively created by the groups that are getting the money. It’s the very groups supposedly agitating for kids who caused the legal problem causing the separation.

Via Free Beacon:

Hillary Clinton has pulled in more than $1 million in donations after seeking money for her “resistance” group to help with family separations at the the U.S. border that she claimed would be doled out to a number of other left-leaning organizations.

“What’s happening to families at the border right now is horrific: Nursing infants ripped away from their mothers. Parents told their toddlers are being taken to bathe or play, only to realize hours later that they aren’t coming back. Children incarcerated in warehouses and, according to more than one account, kept in cages,” Clinton wrote Monday in a fundraising email to supporters. “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.”

Swalwell Defends Hecklers: ‘The President Has to Be Confronted’

So when is he going to confront Obama, you know, the guy who actually put kids in cages? These are not just random people promoting things like surrounding the DHS Secretary, these are lawmakers. Would they like it to happen to them if they push this nonsense?

Via Free Beacon:

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) on Thursday defended recent protests and downplayed crass behavior by those on the left, blaming President Donald Trump for their behavior.

CNN host Erin Burnett brought up a slew of “vile” acts, including hecklers forcing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a restaurant, House members screaming at Trump, and actor Peter Fonda’s offensive tweet. Fonda wrote, “we should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” and later apologized, but Swalwell blamed Trump for creating this much “emotion in the country.”

“When you separate a baby from its breastfeeding mother and put that child in a cage, you’re going to see emotion in this country,” Swalwell said.

He added that he has received messages asking him to do something, and he expressed dissatisfaction that the House Judiciary Committee was instead looking at Hillary Clinton’s email scandal in light of the inspector general’s recent report. That report found bias at the FBI during the investigation of Clinton during her time as secretary of state.

TIME Magazine’s Shocking Cover Is A Total Lie. No Wonder Americans Don’t Trust The Media.

We brought you the father’s story yesterday, but this was how the media used it, even putting the ‘separated’ girl (who was never separated) on the cover of TIME. Mother who put the kid in danger, not a real asylum case and who left the rest of her kids and husband.

Via Daily Wire:

This week, TIME magazine featured a picture of a crying illegal immigrant child on its cover. The child was supposedly separated from her parents; over her looms Donald Trump, smugly staring down at her.

There’s only one problem: the cover is total bull. It’s not just total bull because Trump hasn’t implemented a newly-developed policy of separating children from parents – that’s an operation of law under the Flores settlement as modified by a 2016 Ninth Circuit court ruling. It’s bull because this particular child wasn’t separated from her mother, her mother wasn’t fleeing persecution but did falsely claim asylum, her mother did put the child in danger, and Trump was targeted by the media for treating this mother and child exactly the same way the Obama administration would have.

Here’s the real story.

The little girl is from Honduras. She wasn’t separated from her mother; she was crying because her mother was crossing illegally into the United States and the little girl was “tired and thirsty,” according to Border Patrol.

Military Sending 21 Attorneys To Help Prosecute Border Cases

Fast track to deportation.

Via Stars and Stripes:

The Defense Department has approved sending 21 attorneys experienced in criminal trials to southern border states to assist the Justice Department with immigrant cases, according to information from both departments.

Last month, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis authorized the group of lawyers to serve as special assistant U.S. attorneys as requested by the Justice Department, said Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Defense Department spokesman. The attorneys will assist the Justice Department for no more than 179 days, starting as soon as this month.

Both civilian and military attorneys will serve at these requested locations: San Diego and El Centro, Calif.; Yuma, Ariz.; Las Cruces, N.M., and Corpus Christi, Del Rio, El Paso and Laredo, Texas. Some are already on the ground and working in California with the expectation of more to follow, said Kelly Thornton, spokeswoman for the Office of the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of California. Other districts declined to comment or said the attorneys have not arrived.

As special assistants, the attorneys are expected to assist in prosecuting misdemeanor improper entry and felony illegally entry cases, said Devin O’Malley, a DOJ spokesman. If these cases go to trial, the attorneys could serve as co-counsel with an assistant U.S. attorney.

This request is intended to fill a staffing shortage until the Justice Department can hire 35 new assistant U.S. attorneys to serve along the southwest border that Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in May.

Hundreds Of Separated Children Have Quietly Been Sent To New York

De Blasio may want to rethink cooperating with ICE.

Via NY Times:

Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border.

Even as President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday ending his administration’s policy of separating parents and children who have illegally crossed the border, the crisis was already spreading to a city some 2,000 miles away.

Speaking outside Cayuga Centers in Harlem, one of a group of social service agencies in the state that contract with the federal government to take in unaccompanied minors, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday afternoon said 350 children had come through the center and that 239 of them were currently in Cayuga’s care; the agency is not residential, but places children in temporary foster care and runs day programs.

The children included a 9-year-old boy from Honduras who had come alone on a bus from Texas, and a child as young as 9 months old, Mr. de Blasio said, as he issued a scathing rebuke of the Trump administration.

“How is it possible that none of us knew that there were 239 kids right here in our own city?” he asked. “How is the federal government holding back that information from the people of this city and holding back the help these kids could need?”

Mr. de Blasio said the federal government would not tell city officials exactly how many children were sent to New York or where they were being housed. The office of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said the state also did not know the exact number.

The consulates in New York for Honduras and El Salvador said they, too, were unclear how many of their young citizens were in the city, and of how to reach their relatives back home.

Moonbat Alyssa Milano Offers To Foster Migrant Children Brought To NYC

Her Los Angeles mansion has to pass inspection first.

Via NY Post:

Actress Alyssa Milano wants to take in one of the hundreds of immigrant children housed in foster care facilities in Harlem, who were torn from their parents under President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

The native of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, wrote to the CEO of Cayuga Centers, Edward Myers Hayes, on Thursday, offering to help, according to a letter obtained by The Post.

“Based on New York City news reports detailing a covert, dark-of-night transport of children it appears your organization has stepped up to temporarily care for these poor souls. I, along with others — while fervently against the White House policy that put these children in your care — acknowledge your efforts,” wrote Milano, 45.

“With this, I write to offer my assistance. Like many people touched by this tragedy, I have thought about ways I can help,” she added. “As a mother, I know that children need to be reunited with their parents in the United States more than anything.”

The “Charmed” screen star and mom of two said she was willing to offer children “my home and my heart; my love and whatever stability I can give them until they can be reunited with a parent.”

“I will register with the appropriate authorities so I can bring some of these children into my home and foster them during this time of need,” she offered in the letter. “Afterwards, I will help ensure they get the help they need to fight their cases, stay, and win. I am sure this is something many other Americans would consider a moral and patriotic duty, as well.”[…]

Milano, who lives in Los Angeles, ended her note with: “Mi casa es la casa de ellos” — “My home is their home.”

WWII POW Gets Surprise Diploma 75 Years After Leaving High School To Join Army

Via Fox News:

Seventy-five years after withdrawing from high school to serve as a U.S. Army soldier during World War II, Vito Trause had one last (surprise) mission to complete.

Dubbed “Operation Vito,” the 93-year-old veteran and prisoner of war was awarded a high school diploma at Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Wednesday night.

Trause stepped up to the plate on Nov. 30, 1943, when he left school (formerly known as East Rutherford High School) “to go to war, to join the service, to fight for his country,” Becton Regional Principal Dario Sforza told Fox News. He was supposed to graduate in 1945.

When Sforza learned Trause never received his high school diploma, he wanted to surprise the man — who he called the “town hero” — with one of his own.

“Instead of spending time in English class during his senior year, [Trause] was captured by the Germans as a prisoner of war,” Sforza said, adding that the veteran worked two jobs throughout his life to support his wife and two daughters.

Sessions: Peter Strzok Has Lost His Security Clearance

Why does he still have a job? And especially in HR where he could be behind hiring people?

Via Daily Caller:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that former FBI official Peter Strzok has lost his security clearance amid an internal disciplinary review.

“Mr. Strzok, as I understand, has lost his security clearance,” Sessions told radio host Howie Carr.

Strzok was escorted out of FBI headquarters on Friday, the day after the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released its long-awaited report about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Strzok, who served as deputy chief of counterintelligence, was one of the top investigators on the Clinton probe and the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Samantha Bee: ‘Keep Chasing Kirstjen Nielsen Out Of Restaurants’

Civilized left.

Via Daily Wire:

Samantha Bee has figured out how to get press for her ratings-challenged show: Attack President Trump and his administration — even his family.

It’s worked for other late-night talk show hosts, as well as the not-very-funny “stars” on Comedy Central.

Bee, host of “Full Frontal” on TBS, made the news when she called Trump’s daughter Ivanka a “feckless c**t.” She apologized after advertisers warned that they would bail, but has since walked back her apology.

On Wednesday’s show, Bee called for opponents of Trump to keep harassing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Protesters this week stormed a restaurant where Nielsen was eating dinner with her family and shouted at the secretary, at one point chanting “shame.”

Media Misrepresents Pope Francis On Border Issue, Leave Out He Said “Happened Under Obama”

And that he didn’t actually ‘condemn Trump’ as they claimed.

Via Daily Wire:

From the way the media has reported it, you might think that Pope Francis has condemned the Trump administration — and only the Trump administration — for the crisis at the border.

“Pope Francis Rebukes Trump Administration Over Family Separations,” headlined Politico. “Pope Francis Condemns Trump’s Family Separation Policy,” shouted Vox.

The same headlines were virtually parroted one way or another by HuffPo and WaPo.

Of course, none of these outlets uttered so much as a peep when the Roman Pontiff compared eugenics abortion to Nazi crimes or affirmed the Church’s doctrine of marriage being between a man and a woman this week. They trot out the Pope only when it suits their purpose and then discard him the moment he takes them to task for their sins.

People Attack Boston Celtics Legend Kevin McHale For Attending Trump Rally

McHale and his wife are now being hounded by leftists who chased her from Twitter and want to drive him out of any connection with the NBA.

Via Outkick:

Every time I think the far left wing in this country mixing sports and politics can’t get any more insane — they do.

Last night Donald Trump traveled to Duluth, Minnesota for a rally in that community. Trump, who lost the state of Minnesota by just 44,765 votes to Hillary Clinton out of nearly three million votes cast, spoke to over 9,000 at the rally. Among those in attendance? Legendary Boston Celtic player and former coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Houston Rockets, Kevin McHale.

McHale wasn’t on the stage or introduced by Trump, he was just in the crowd in the rally. The anti-Trump social media community dove into the photos of the rally and shared a picture of what appeared to be McHale in the crowd.

You can see that Tweet of the initial photograph here.

Father Of Two-Year-Old Who Became Face Of Child Separation Crisis Reveals The Truth

The mother failed to claim asylum in Mexico, the first country she came to, which would be what she’s required to do.

Via Daily Mail:

The father of the Honduran girl who became the face of the family separation crisis has revealed that he still has not been in touch with his wife or daughter but was happy to learn they are safe.

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’

‘You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,’ he said.

Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.

He revealed that his wife had previously mentioned her wish to go to the United States for a ‘better future’ but did not tell him nor any of their family members that she was planning to make the trek.

‘I didn’t support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that? But it was her decision at the end of the day.’

He said that Sandra had always wanted to experience ‘the American dream’ and hoped to find a good job in the States.

Denis, who works as a captain at a port on the coast of Puerto Cortes, explained that things back home were fine but not great, and that his wife was seeking political asylum.

He said that Sandra set out on the 1,800-mile journey with the baby girl on June 3, at 6am, and he has not heard from her since.

‘I never got the chance to say goodbye to my daughter and now all I can do is wait’, he said, adding that he hopes they are either granted political asylum or are sent back home.

Media Goes Crazy Over Melania’s Jacket, Falsely Reports She Wore It During Visit To Child Center

Media spreading false Melania nonsense again.

Via Twitchy:

Remember the time Melania Trump left to visit the relief effort in Houston from Hurricane Harvey and the media questioned her choice to wear stiletto heels, which one reporter deemed “not exactly disaster friendly”? Of course, she changed into tennis shoes on the plane, but it gave the media something to gripe about.

That’s why Allahpundit over at Twitchy sister site Hot Air is right today when he says FLOTUS should apologize: “Not for the message on her jacket but for inadvertently subjecting America to all of the stupid, predictable late-night jokes this is going to inspire.”

We like to think the first lady was just trolling the media, and of course, CNN’s Jim Acosta was among those to bite:

“I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.” Yeah, right.

Acosta did some research at The Daily Mail to learn more about the jacket.

And just as with her previous trip to Texas, Mrs. Trump changed clothes on the plane, so no, she wasn’t wearing the jacket while visiting the children.

Lefty TV Writer Makes Disturbing Threat Against Donald Trump Jr’s 4-Year-Old Daughter

On Wednesday morning, TV writer Pat Dussault targeted Donald Trump Jr’s daughter Chloe, who, again, is just four years old.

Replying to a tweet from the Trump son addressing the horrific tweet from Fonda concerning Barron, Dussault wrote, “Don’t worry, we’re coming for Chloe, too.”
