Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez will hold three fundraisers for American ex-patriots in Mexico, as Democrats struggle to keep pace with Republicans in fundraising.
Perez will host three events in Mexico City on Sept. 28, Bloomberg reported. One event is a happy hour that will cost $25 to attend. Perez will also host a dinner where tickets are going for between $1,000 and $15,000.
DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa’s confirmed to Bloomberg that the events would be taking place.
The DNC will require attendees to provide information showing that they are American citizens or permanent residents, in order to comply with federal campaign finance laws.
Actually this is a very clever solution if it passes legal challenges.

The Trump administration is rolling out its own licensing standards for family residential centers, a move that will work around the Flores settlement and mitigate the illegal immigration crisis.
The Department of Homeland Security introduced a new policy Wednesday regarding family residential centers (FRCs) that house immigrant family units. The rule change, the administration argues, will allow DHS to keep families together during their detention while also stemming the flow of illegal immigration along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The Trump administration has established a new rule to respond to the realities of current immigration flows, a rule based on the principle that families should remain together during immigration proceedings,” acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said during a Monday press conference.
Under the change, the administration will create a “licensing regime” for family residential centers. This will allow immigrant families living in the facilities to remain there longer than the 20-day limit currently established under the Flores settlement, a DHS official said to the Daily Caller News Foundation. By doing this, family units can remain in detention throughout the entire duration of their immigration court proceedings.
There will be two different ways this change can play out.
A state government can establish its own licensing regime for FRCs. Texas attempted to make their own standards, but it has since been bogged down in litigation. If a state is able to do so, however, then family detention centers would abide by their state licensing regime. For states that do not establish rules, then the administration will have the ability to use licensing standards set by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in order to license FRCs.
“The facilities that we will be using to temporarily house families under this rule are appropriately, fundamentally different than the facilities where migrants are processed following apprehension or encounter at the border. They are campus-like settings with appropriate medical, educational, recreational, dining, and private housing facilities,” McAleenan explained.
They would have gone nuclear if Israel did this.
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank. These members of “The Squad” have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted against legislation condemning it. PJ Media reached out to them for comment on the move, and they have remained silent.
Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society. Al-Qaws was planning a gathering for members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group only has offices in Israel — in East Jerusalem and in Haifa.
Luay Zreikat, a spokesman for Palestine Police, said LGBT activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.” He added that Al-Qaws’s activities are completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”
BIDEN: “A lot of you know the Delmarva Peninsula, it’s all three feet above water, a lot of great fishing and hunting, duck hunting. And I walked through the estuaries, and a hunter guy said ‘Damn, Joe, what did you take my gun for?’ I said, let me ask you, those cop-killer bullets, I said, how many deer you know wearing Kevlar vests? Raise your hand. You really need one? And hell, if you need 100 clips or 30 clips in a weapons, then you shouldn’t be hunting, man! You’re dangerous! You’re dangerous. (applause) I’m not joking. You know, he’d say to me, take my shotgun. I said, I have three — now I have five, because my son died and I have three of his. That’s five shotguns, but they’re under lock and key.

Well, if you leave a weapon sitting on the table with no trigger lock on — ”
Hollywood Moonbat Susan Sarandon Comes Out Swinging Against Elizabeth Warren at Bernie Sanders Rally
I’m still skeptical.
Via Free Beacon:
Something is happening behind the scenes within the Democratic Party. Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the prohibitive favorite to win the nomination, even as he continues to commit word gaffes with his mouth.
Many still consider Biden to be the most “electable” candidate, but some Democrats, including some of his own aides and supporters, are beginning to express doubts about the 76-year-old’s intellectual capacity. It would appear that the Democratic establishment, in its desperation to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, is keen to develop a contingency plan in case Biden falters.
Team Biden is on the defensive, and has even wheeled out the former Veep’s brain surgeon to reassure skeptics that he’s totally fine and definitely doesn’t have brain damage. It’s not the most reassuring claim to have to make about a presidential candidate, but here we are. Politico reports:
The two brain aneurysms Biden suffered in 1988 were fully treated and he showed no signs of mental trouble as a result, said Dr. Neal Kassell, who performed the surgery on Biden three decades ago. Nor did Biden suffer any brain damage that could come back to haunt him in old age, Kassell said.
“He is every bit as sharp as he was 31 years ago. I haven’t seen any change,” Kassell said. “I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had. There was no damage whatsoever.”
Piers Morgan: "The Left Have Become Unbearable".

This where the more classical liberals are at at this point, they see the crazy of the present-day Democrats.
“Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan has a message for his fellow liberals: You’re “unbearable.”
“Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a liberal, okay?” Morgan said this week.
Morgan shocked viewers recently by agreeing to another debate with his old sparring partner, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. The two had some nasty tête-à-têtes a few years ago over gun control when Morgan hosted a show on CNN. In one discussion on the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012, Shapiro even looked straight in Morgan’s face and accused him of “standing on the graves” of the murdered children.

Hillary Claims Study Debunked That Google Cost Trump Votes, But Guy Who Did Study, A Clinton Supporter, Just Levels Her
Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch

He lets her have it big time. He lays out all her connections.
As Twitchy reported earlier, Hillary Clinton got awfully snippy with Trump when he shared findings of a study that proved Google actually cost him millions of votes.
The failed 2016 presidential candidate claimed the findings had been debunked, which ticked off the guy who actually authored the report.
Dr. Robert Epstein.
Who just so happens to be a huge Hillary fan.
Epstein (ironic, we know) vowed to tweetstorm about Hillary, and here it is.

On Monday, Jon Favreau, former speechwriter for former President Barack Obama and currently a co-host for Pod Save America, decided to attack Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his criticism of The New York Times. He should have known better; Cruz calmly took him apart as easily as a surgeon doing a simple operation.
Last Sunday, Cruz (R-TX) fired off a series of tweets lambasting The New York Times after a leaked transcript of a speech from New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet was published by Slate. As The Daily Wire reported, “The transcript showed the editor explaining that since the claim that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election fell apart, the paper will now publish stories claiming Trump is a racist for the rest of his presidency.”
Cruz tweeted, “There was a time when journalists covered ‘news.’ The NYT has given up on even pretending anymore. Today, they are Pravda, a propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals. These remarks at their ‘town hall’ are a scandal & would be a firing offense at any real journalistic outlet.” He added, “The Editor says (in effect) ‘for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.’ That’s not journalism.”

Wendy’s and Chick-fil-A for the win…
Chick-fil-A is the undisputed champion of chicken sandwiches, but there are others who would like to be. One established chicken joint is Popeye’s, and it decided to try to trounce Chick-fil-A in the digital public square, only things didn’t work out so well for them in the end as a new challenger entered the ring.
It all started when Chick-fil-A tweeted out a simple meme that said a bun, plus chicken, plus pickles equals love.
This was blatantly unconstitutional and maybe now it will get another look.
What started as a textbook example of executive lawmaking by fiat that turned into a textbook case of results-oriented judicial rulings is now headed to the Supreme Court.
Of course, I’m talking about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.
The executive lawmaking by fiat took place in 2012 when President Obama basically gave the finger to Congress and announced that he was going to contravene black letter law and exempted some illegal aliens from being eligible for deportation.
The method he used for this was not an Executive Order or the APA rule-making process, it was established by a memo former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano sent out to her field staff directing them to not deport illegal aliens who allege that they were brought to the US as children. That’s it. That was the depth of the analysis and consultation. A. Memo. A similar program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, was ruled unconstitutional by a federal appeals court which should have been a hint that it wasn’t on the up-and-up. But when Jeff Sessions got around to pulling the plug on DACA, lawfare ensued and the administration was told it could not rescind the Napolitano memo.

US women’s soccer team co-captain Megan Rapinoe revealed that her father voted for President Trump in the 2016 election — despite her once referring to herself as a “walking protest” of his administration.
The World Cup champion said that not only does her dad support the president, but both her parents regularly tune in to Fox News, which covered her spat with Trump after she balked at the idea of visiting the White House.
“I’m very similar to how [my parents] are, even though I think my dad voted for Trump and I’ll say, ‘I don’t get it. How are you simultaneously as proud as punch of me, and watching Fox News all the time, [who are doing] takedowns of your daughter?’” Rapinoe said in an interview Saturday with the

Big Win: Planned Parenthood Abandons Title X Federal Funds After Trump Rule Prohibits Abortion Referrals
Huge pro-life win.
Via Fox News:
Planned Parenthood announced Monday that it is pulling out of the Title X federal family planning program rather than abide by a new Trump administration rule prohibiting participants from referring patients for abortions.
Pro-life groups heralded the abrupt decision as a major victory — and one that signaled that Planned Parenthood, contrary to its claims, is primarily a politically motivated abortion provider, not a healthcare organization.
The rule does not prohibit medical providers from discussing abortion with patients, but prevents them from telling patients where they can obtain one. The rule’s requirements also include financial separation from facilities that provide abortion, designating abortion counseling as optional instead of standard practice, and limiting which staff members can discuss abortion with patients. Clinics would have until next March to separate their office space and examination rooms from the physical facilities of providers that offer abortions.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she did.
