National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning that the media “vilify” border patrol agents while they “romanticize” migrants coming to the U.S. illegally.

“It’s so frustrating and disappointing to see that border patrol agents are vilified for strictly enforcing the laws that Congress put in place,” Judd said, in response to a question whether border patrol agents are becoming more mindful of their enforcement amid the criticism from the media.

“We’re trying to protect the American public. Yet, they romanticize those people crossing the border illegally and vilify the good guys that are trying to do the job for the American public.”

Judd also welcomed President Trump’s suggestion of bringing additional troops to the existing 6,000 at the border to deal with the crisis, saying the border patrol doesn’t have enough resources to deal with the surge in illegal border crossings.

“What we are looking at is all of our resources being pulled from the field as the [Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch] testified that we just don’t have the resources in the field to deal with the numbers of people that are crossing the border,” he said.

“And what we have to look at is the number of people that are actually getting away, evading apprehension. Texas Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz from the same sector said within this fiscal year alone, we have 25,000 people that were able to evade apprehension.

“Those are people we do not know what their purpose for coming into the United States are. We don’t know where they are from. That’s a very dangerous situation and dynamic we are setting up,” he added.

BORDER PATROL OFFICIAL: CARAVAN-SIZE INFLUX OF MIGRANTS ARRIVING EVERY WEEK IN RIO GRANDE VALLEY

Karisch testified before Congress earlier this week, claiming that a caravan-size influx of migrants is flooding across the border each week in just a single sector.

“Much media attention has focused on caravans coming across from Central America,” he said at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. “But the fact is that RGV is receiving caravan-equivalent numbers every seven days.”

Karisch said his sector has apprehended people from 50 different countries, including China, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania. “People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans,” he said.

The National Border Patrol Council President also said the leadership changes in the administration, particularly the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen, is for the better.

“It’s absolutely for the better. If you look at Secretary Nielsen, she is second to none in cybersecurity. That’s where her expertise lies. Unfortunately, she did not have that experience in border security,” he said.

“So we elevated the commissioner of customs and border protection who had a career at CBP to face the problems that the DHS is looking at in the face right now and that is border security.”

Boston Globe opinion writer wished he peed on Bill Kristol’s dinner, says Nielsen must be blackballed

The Boston Globe posted an Op-Ed by a one-time waiter expressing regret he didn’t urinate on the dinner of a conservative pundit and hope that outgoing Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen be kept unemployed and face confrontation in public over what he deemed “ethnic cleansing.”

“Keep Kirstjen Nielsen unemployed and eating Grubhub over her kitchen sink,” read the headline of the article published on Wednesday, written by Luke O’Neil, an occasional writer for the Guardian, with bylines as well in The New York Times, New York magazine, and elsewhere.

“One of the biggest regrets of my life is not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon,” read the article’s first sentence before it was shortly scrubbed, with the Globe issuing a prominent editor’s note saying that while the previous tone wasn’t appropriate, they now embrace the content of the article. “A version of this column as originally published did not meet Globe standards and has been changed. The Globe regrets the previous tone of the piece,” the note read.

The piece goes on to accuse Nielsen of being a “reluctant triggerman for Donald Trump’s inhumane policies of ethnic cleansing” and call for throwing out current and former administration officials from restaurants over the administration’s zero-tolerance enforcement of anti-illegal immigration policies that existed prior to Trump’s election.

O’Neil wrote that “it was the last time I remember being proud to be an American” after a string of instances last year in which Nielsen, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and others were forced to leave restaurants due to rowdy protesters.

“It was also one of the only times it seemed like any of the architects of this ruinous xenophobic pre-pogrom might be forced to contend, however briefly, with the consequences of their policy decisions,” he added.

The article then criticized media figures for “scolding” the protesters who ushered the officials from public places, stating that he supports America becoming a country where Republicans aren’t allowed to eat at certain restaurants.

“Sadly, the scolding seems to have done its job,” O’Neil bemoaned. “It’s been a while since we’ve been treated to a soulless Trumpist going viral for going hungry, and the sacristy of the restaurant seems to have held.”

The writer admits that the situation at the southern border predates the Trump administration, but he adds that members of both the Trump and Obama administrations should be sent to prison, or at least be thrown away out of a restaurant.

“Yes, much of our mistreatment of migrants was ongoing long before the Trump gang came along. Throw the Obama-era lot in prison too, for all I care. At the very least, throw them out of a restaurant,” he wrote.

The article concludes by giving a “permission” to the members of the public to tell Trump officials “where to go and what they can do with themselves when they arrive there, but, you know, said in a more specific and traditional Boston colloquialism.”

Paul to Pompeo: You don’t have permission to start war with Iran

Kentucky Republican Rand Paul is pressuring the Trump administration to pledge not to attack Iran without proper war authorization in Congress, a call that comes after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo left the possibility of a military action against the Islamic Republic open.

Pompeo suggested on Wednesday that the U.S. could strike the Iranian regime using the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) passed that permits actions against Al Qaeda and other groups responsible for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

TRUMP DESIGNATES IRAN’S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD A ‘FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION’

“The factual question with respect to Iran’s connections to Al-Qaeda is very real. They have hosted Al-Qaeda, they have permitted Al-Qaeda to transit their country,” Pompeo said before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “There is no doubt there is a connection between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Al-Qaeda. Period, full stop.”

“There is no doubt there is a connection between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Al-Qaeda. Period, full stop.”

— Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

But Pompeo’s comments alerted the Kentucky senator, who has long criticized the executive branch for waging foreign wars without getting approval from Congress as it supposed to while always justifying the military actions with the AUMF, an authorization Paul has fought to repeal for years now.

Paul pressed the top diplomat to commit not to attack Iran under the AUMF, telling the administration that any action against the regime would have to be approved as set out in the Constitution.

Pompeo declined to commit to Paul’s proposal, noting that he prefers to leave the legality of war issue to lawyers.

“I am troubled that the administration can’t unequivocally say that you haven’t been given power … I can tell you explicitly, you have not been given power or authority by Congress to have war with Iran,” Paul snapped back.

“In any kind of semblance of a sane world, you would have to come back and ask us before you go into Iran,” Paul added.

“I can tell you explicitly, you have not been given power or authority by Congress to have war with Iran.”

— Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SLAPS NEW SANCTIONS ON IRAN

Pompeo’s comments aren’t entirely incorrect as in the midst of the war in Afghanistan after the 9/11 terror attacks, senior Al Qaeda members fled to Iran where they were welcomed, the New York Times reported.

Hamza bin Laden, a son of Osama bin Laden, has allegedly been living in Iran since 2001. He’s now believed to be the terror group’s prominent leader.

But even under the AUMF, the Trump administration would have to stretch the meaning of the text to justify an attack on Iran, a country that directly didn’t participate in the 9/11 terror attack.

Pompeo’s comments about Iran came just days after the administration designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as a foreign terrorist group, raising speculations that some military action against the regime is being planned.

Another Dem Capitol staffer implicated in Senate data theft ‘doxxing’ scheme

Another aide to Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan has been implicated in the crime stemming from the case of former staffer Jackson Cosko who admitted to posting the personal information of GOP senators online and stealing Congressional data.

Cosko, who formerly worked for Hassan before his firing, pleaded guilty on Friday to five federal offenses for “doxxing” personal information of five Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, during the hearings for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

He also confessed to stealing gigabytes-worth of data, including dozens of user names and passwords, Social Security numbers, and credit card information belonging to Senate employees,

Prosecutors said Cosko concocted an “extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme, copying entire network drives, sorting and organizing sensitive data, and exploring ways to use that data to his benefit.”

But prosecutors now say that a second aide to Hassan has been involved in the data-stealing scheme, alleging that she helped Cosko to conduct the operation.

Samantha G. DeForest-Davis, whose LinkedIn states she’s a staff assistant to the senator, though Senate records indicate that she’s no longer working there, is being implicated in the crime, with a case being opened that names her, according to the Daily Caller.

DeForest-Davis hasn’t yet been charged with anything, though she allegedly provided a key that Cosko used to enter the senate office at night in an effort to set up the scheme to steal the data. Prosecutors said in courts records that she was aware of Cosko’s intentions.

The now-former staffer also reportedly filed an affidavit that could be used to determine whether she’s eligible for a public defender, the outlet reported.

Cosko worked for Hassan as a computer systems administrator until May 2018 when he was fired for failing to follow office procedures. This prompted him to enter the office and steal the information.

He went on to become an intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. He was fired again amid his arrest for doxxing GOP senators after getting angry about their support Kavanaugh in the midst of allegations of impropriety. He intended to intimidate the senators and their families, according to court records.

Fox News’ Stephen Sorace contributed to this report.

Newsweek’s Ilhan Omar cover, article, slammed for ‘normalizing’ hate, anti-Semitism

Westlake Legal Group omar-newsweek Newsweek's Ilhan Omar cover, article, slammed for 'normalizing' hate, anti-Semitism Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 07e946d9-b04c-5522-9408-a07470d2cc88

Newsweek magazine is in hot water for “normalizing” hate after featuring embattled Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar as the cover story about how she shifted the Democratic Party and the conversation about Israel.

Omar, who has faced repeated controversies over her comments about Israel and supporters of the Jewish state, was put on the cover of Newsweek’s latest issue with the headline “Ilhan Omar, The Democrats And Israel.”

CRENSHAW CALLS OUT OMAR FOR DESCRIBING 9/11 ATTACKS AS ‘SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING’

Social media went into a frenzy over the magazine’s issue, criticizing the publication for further legitimizing Omar’s views on Israel.

“Normalizing and even elevating an anti-Semite is a new low even for Newsweek. It’s been a shame to see a once decent publication devolve into such a clickbait rag,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet.

National Rifle Association’s Dana Loesch pointed out recent controversies involving the congresswoman

“Calls a Jewish man a ‘white nationalist,’ accused Jewish people of dual loyalty, described 9/11 as ‘some people did something’ — if Newsweek is talking about Omar ‘changing the conversation’ to include more anti-Semitism, they’re right,” she tweeted.

Omar was first accused of anti-Semitism for tweeting in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

REP. ILHAN OMAR PROBED FOR ALLEGEDLY SPENDING $6,000 OF CAMPAIGN FUNDS ON DIVORCE ATTORNEY, PERSONAL TRAVEL

She then drew bipartisan uproar in February after she suggested politicians in the U.S. were bought by AIPAC, a non-partisan organization that seeks to foster the relationship between the U.S. and Israel.

Omar then reignited the controversy, saying groups supportive of Israel were pushing members of Congress to have “allegiance to a foreign country,” echoing the anti-Semitic trope of dual loyalty.

The Newsweek article credits Omar with shifting leftwards the debate on the U.S. support for Israel, adding that her views are becoming increasingly shared among the Democratic voters, which will force any candidates in the future to embrace Omar’s views.

“To remain a viable candidate in the upcoming primaries, it will be vital for contenders to win the support of the Democratic base, which skews younger, more multiethnic and progressive — in short, Omar’s supporters,” the article concluded.

GOP trolls ‘Georgia’ Dem over residency claims, gets her to accept gift basket at ‘real home’ in Tennessee

Georgia Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath was the target of some creative trolling by the Republican Party over her widely disputed claim that she actually lives in Georgia, after receiving and signing for a gift basket the GOP sent to her address — in Tennessee.

McBath, a racial justice activist who defeated Republican incumbent Karen Handel in November, has been dogged with questions since the election campaign on whether she actually lives in the state she now represents.

The state’s Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s Office, which refrained from issuing a decision during the election due to appeals, confirmed last month that McBath didn’t meet the requirements to call her Cobb County home her primary residence for the three tax years leading up to the election, meaning she was a Tennessee resident when she was elected to Congress.

Rep. Lucy McBath accepted the gift on Friday at 10:45 a.m. and signed for it. 

DEM STACEY ABRAMS STILL NOT CONCEDING DEFEAT, CLAIMS GOP STOLE GEORGIA ELECTION

“We’ll say it again for the folks in the back: Lucy McBath is a resident of Tennessee, not Georgia. Instead of going to Georgia to meet and help her constituents, Lucy McBath jetted out of DC to her real home in Tennessee,” NRCC spokeswoman Camille Gallo said.

McBath’s office did not respond to Fox News’ repeated requests for comment.

The congresswoman disputed previous reports that she’s not a resident of Georgia, insisting that she only “briefly” lived in Tennessee or that she “recently” moved to Georgia.

Cobb County permits some residents to decrease their property tax liability through a homestead exemption to residents, an exemption McBath’s husband used since 2000.

Yet according to documents reviewed by AllOnGeorgia.com, her husband has been ordered to pay back taxes for the last three years as the exemption was revoked for having vehicle registrations, voter registrations and driver’s license applications in other states.

Florida housing agency paid $3,650 to teach embattled boss to be nice, stop being abusive to staff

A Florida housing agency paid $3,650 to a consultant to teach their boss to be nice and stop being abusive to his staff.

St. Petersburg Housing Authority CEO Tony Love came under fire amid revelations of complaints made by senior staffers who claim that he acted inappropriately by shouting and demeaning them.

FLORIDA MAY SEND A BIG MESSAGE TO SANCTUARY CITIES

To fix the problem of a raucous boss, the agency decided to fork over $3,650 in 2017 to pay for a five-hour meeting with a consultant, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Love reportedly admitted during the meeting that he yelled at his staffers and even once forced them to do work that wasn’t related to the agency.

The consultant then advised Love to cease criticizing employees while surrounded by others and stop trying to become friends with owners of outside firms paid to work for the agency, the newspaper reported.

But it appears that the money spent on the consultant was wasted as Love was accused of abusive behavior just four days after the meeting. Robin Adams, the authority’s asset management officer, alleged that Love bullied and harassed her.

“Mr. Love has consistently verbally abused, harassed and degraded me and other senior staff members, especially female staff members, through one-way interrogations, baseless chastising, insults and bullying.”

“Mr. Love has consistently verbally abused, harassed and degraded me and other senior staff members, especially female staff members, through one-way interrogations, baseless chastising, insults and bullying,” Adams’ complaint reportedly read, adding that she had to receive counseling to deal with the stress stemming from Love’s behavior.

Love was also criticized after the revelations that he lived rent-free for nine months in an apartment for low-income families, prompting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to send a notice of violation to the agency, according to the Times. He also approved agency funds to revamp the apartment and even pay his electric bills.

Authority spokeswoman Michelle Ligon told the newspaper that the consultant worked as a “coaching exercise” to inspire staffers to embrace new ideas.

“The effectiveness of team building, through consensus, is challenging but not impossible,” she said, “as shown by virtue of the compelling fact that in a very short period of time, the agency has transitioned in management, operations, and industry matters.”

Crenshaw calls out Omar for describing 9/11 attacks as ‘some people did something’

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar is facing backlash after her speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as “some people did something.”

Omar spoke at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser last month, where she called upon other Muslim Americans to “make people uncomfortable” with their activism and presence in the society and criticized the Jewish state.

But another part of the speech surfaced on social media earlier this week, in which Omar described the terror attacks perpetrated by al Qaeda.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said at the event.

The comments from the Minnesota freshman Democrat, still reeling from a number of anti-Semitic controversies, prompted Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw to slam Omar for her description of the terror attacks.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’” Crenshaw wrote in a tweet. “Unbelievable.”

NETANYAHU, ILHAN OMAR SPAR OVER ROLE OF AIPAC’S POLITICAL MONEY: ‘IT’S NOT ABOUT THE BENJAMINS’

The group has been infamously listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding of Hamas, stemming from the case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development which led to millions of charitable dollars getting funneled to the Palestinian terrorist organization.

Omar’s speech at CAIR in Southern California drew hundreds of protesters waving Israeli flags and denouncing the congresswoman’s comments about Israel that were perceived as anti-Semitic.

She first came under fire for tweeting in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

She then drew bipartisan uproar in February after she suggested politicians in the U.S. were bought by AIPAC, a non-partisan organization that seeks to foster the relationship between the U.S. and Israel.

Omar then reignited the controversy, saying groups supportive of Israel were pushing members of Congress to have “allegiance to a foreign country,” echoing the anti-Semitic trope of dual loyalty.

The wreckage of the Japanese F-35 stealth fighter jet that disappeared from radar over the Pacific Ocean during a night training flight was found in the sea on Wednesday.

The Japanese defense ministry said the male pilot, who’s in his 40s, remains missing.

The fighter jet went off the radar while flying off the eastern coast of Aomori, just about half an hour after taking off the Misawa air base with three other F-35As.

AIR FORCE: F-35A FIGHTER JET IS NOW ‘COMBAT READY’

It remains unclear why caused the crash, Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya told reporters, adding that 12 other F-35s at the base will be grounded.

“We have collected parts from the jet fighter’s tail fin so we [believe] it crashed,” Iwaya said, according to the BBC.

The U.S. military supported the Japanese allies in the search of the jet and the pilot. The U.S. Navy’s 7th fleet, P-8A maritime patrol aircraft, and a guided-missile destroyer are continuing to assist Japanese-led search and rescue efforts for the pilot.

MISSING JAPANESE F-35 POSES MAJOR SECURITY HEADACHE FOR US IF IT FALLS INTO RUSSIAN OR CHINESE HANDS

Some have warned that the crashed jet could have caused major security concern had the wreckage been first discovered by China or Russia, both of which long hoped to get their hands on the state-of-the-art military technology produced by the U.S.

Iwaya said that the pilot sent a signal to abort the mission, according to the broadcaster. Shortly after the signal, all communications with the fighter jet were lost.

Japanese military began deploying the U.S.-made F-35s since last year in an effort to ramp up defense spending amid threats from North Korea and China.

The government of Japan is also seeking to 147 F-35s, including 105 F-35As, costing about $90 million each.

Pelosi appears to mock Ocasio-Cortez over reliance on Twitter for support

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to mock Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – without mentioning her name – over her reliance on Twitter for support while neglecting the work to pass the Democratic agenda into laws.

The New York Democrat, who has nearly 4 million followers on Twitter, has used the platform to rally the online support for her radical proposals like the Green New Deal, though none of the support translated into actual legislative victories.

Pelosi was asked during a USA Today interview published on Monday about her struggles of running a House caucus while freshmen Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez are pushing the party further to the left and fighting over more symbolic gestures rather than actually implementing Democratic policies.

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” Pelosi said.

The top House Democrat also noted that progressives are “fine” after she had to tell them that they need realistic legislation that could actually pass the House.

“As I say to my own district, ‘You go out and elect 218 people, just like San Francisco, then we can talk,’” she said.

This isn’t the first time Pelosi threw shade on Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this year, the House Speaker somewhat dismissed the Green New Deal during an interview with Politico.

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi said. “The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”

Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly left out of the Pelosi-approved Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, though some reports suggest the New York Democrat voluntarily decided not to join the committee where the legislation to combat climate change will actually be worked out.

The Green New Deal is estimated to cost up to $93 trillion or $600,000 per household, according to studies. The radical measure proposes the transformation of the U.S. economy to cut emissions in addition to retrofitting and replacing every building in an effort to reach the goal.
