    Mexican airline Volaris is offering free flights home for illegal immigrant children in the United States to be reunited with their families. In a statement released on Friday, the airline said, ďIt hurts us to see these children without their parents and it is our vocation to reunite them.Ē So, whatís the plan? Coordinating with authorities in the U.S, Mexico, and numerous Central American countries, Volaris said it will provide free seating for the children to all the locations on their pre-existing routes ó roughly 65 destinations in North and Central America.

    The next time asteroids menace the earth, we'll be ready. Because NASA has created a plan. But before you get too excited, unfortunately, NASA's just-released plan does not include a Bruce Willis-led crew of roughnecks landing on an asteroid and blowing it to smithereens with a nuke. Which begs the question, if that's not part of the plan, what's a potential "Space Force" actually for? Yesterday, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released a report titled, the "National Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy and Action Plan." Okay, see, this is the problem with government bloat. That title is...

    Illinois Review ^ | June 22, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    International trade has always been in the news. Business reporters talk about a trade deficit, politicians wail about jobs being exported overseas, and every so often, the government signs a new free trade agreement or trade promotion agreement (they are different things) with one or two or a hundred faraway countries. But despite all this, international trade policy has not been at the forefront of the news cycle in a generation; not since the US-Canada Free Trade Agreement was voided 25 years ago, to be replaced by NAFTA, a three-party FTA between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Thanks to...

    What are the resolutions? One of the measures restricts officers from asking the status of immigrants without first permitting them to not answer the question. The other instructs officers to refrain from arresting people for low-level offenses such as smoking marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and other misdemeanors.
  • Is it just me, or has Drudge started leaning toward Trump? (Vanity)

    My withered brain | 21 June 2018 | Me
    Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site. Trump heaps praise on Drudge ReportSo, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump. I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past. Of course, I may also be crazy...

    An anonymous email came in over the transom this morning: Hi, Stacy. During the early weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a lumbering Philippine container ship, it was noteworthy that the captain and a couple of admirals were publically named, but not the actual officer in charge, the officer of the deck. (OOD) The other person who should have kept the Fitz out of trouble is the person in charge of the combat information center, the Tactical Action Officer. That individual is supposed to be monitoring the combat radar, which can detect a swimmer at a distance of...

    I got into a fight over immigration over the weekend with my best friend. He loves hillary but we respect each other views for the most part. He started ripping me a new a one about Trump and the kids at the boarder calling it the holocaust and trump is the new hitler. I tried to explain that Clinton signed this into law in 1996 or 1997 and that its being going on every since then. He did not want to hear that. Its all Trumps fault. He is a very smart guy and i did not know where that...

    POSTED ON JUNE 15, 2018 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN RACIAL PREFERENCES HARVARD DOESNíT LIKE ASIANS I wrote here about the class action lawsuit that accuses Harvard of discriminating against Asian-Americans. The court has denied Harvardís motions to dismiss, and the case is moving forward, which caused the university to defend its admissions practices in an email to its alumni. In denying discrimination, Harvard says it relies on a ďwhole-person admissions process.Ē That is, Harvard ďconsiders the whole person, not just an applicantís grades and test scores.Ē Thatís fine as far as it goes, but if one ethnic group consistently needs...

    On Monday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) proposed an amendment to this yearís National Defense Authorization Act. The National Defense Authorization Act has to be renewed every year, and every year Lee proposes the same amendment. This year, it was co-sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (R-Calif.), who may be as far to the left of the political spectrum as Lee is to the right. What was this amendment about? The proposal for Amendment 2366 read simply: To clarify that an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority does not authorize the detention without charge or...
