With the partial federal government shutdown closing in on a month, failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is offering up some really innovative ideas for fixing the crisis at the border.
Clinton sounded off on Twitter Thursday over a recent report in The New York Times that alleges the government may have separated more children from illegal immigrants posing as their parents than previously reported.
“The Trump administration likely separated thousands more children from their parents at the Southern border than was previously believed.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now accusing President Donald Trump of putting her life in danger.
On Thursday, Trump sent a letter to Pelosi informing her that he cancelled her upcoming trip to Europe and the Middle East.
Trump told Pelosi that she could not use military aircraft — which are funded by taxpayers — but could still make the trip if she wanted to fly commercial on her own dime.
Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, took to Twitter on Friday morning and accused — without any evidence — the Trump administration of leaking “the commercial travel plans.”
“After President Trump revoked the use of military aircraft to travel to Afghanistan, the delegation was prepared to fly commercially to proceed with this vital trip to meet with our commanders and troops on the front lines,” Hammill wrote.
In another example of YouTube protecting California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the video platform has notified The American Mirror that it has “restricted” a montage video exposing her long-time alliance with the anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan.

With Sen. Lindsey Graham serving as the new chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ailing health, Democrats are conjuring up a vicious smear campaign against the South Carolina Republican.
This week, a newly-elected Democratic lawmaker and liberals in the media spread a conspiracy theory that Graham is “compromised” or “bought” because he has been agreeing with President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, tweeted “They got him, he is compromised!” in response to a video clip of Graham in 2015 speaking ill of Trump.
An unnamed former staffer with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation claims in a lawsuit filed this week that she was raped by an employee, then later fired by Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee for pursuing legal action.
The woman, identified as Jane Doe, was a 19-year-old intern with the CBCF in October 2015, when she alleges the intern coordinator, Damien Jones, plied her with alcohol and took advantage of her at his apartment.
The woman was working for Rep Terri Sewell at the time and did not initially pursue legal action, but she changed her mind in March 2018 after learning Jones was being considered for a position with Jackson Lee, Jane Doe’s new boss.
Twitter is colluding with Democrats in Congress to ensure they’re using the social media platform as effectively as possible.
Yesterday, USA Today reported Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has the largest following in the U.S. House would be taking the lead.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dances outside her office, solicits Instant Pot recipes and gets into fights on Twitter. Soon you may see other Democrats taking a page from her social media playbook.
The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting a session Thursday morning with Ocasio-Cortez of New York (@AOC – 2.42 million followers) and Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut (@jahimes – 76,500 followers) “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling.” …
The decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez, a House freshman, to share her expertise signals the Democratic party’s attempt to bring in fresh voices – even when those voices don’t always agree with leadership.
