“California is a magnet for illegal aliens, aided and abetted by the government and the courts. It’s also where a recent near-fatal auto accident speaks to the lack of resolve in America to secure its borders.”
“Lennox is a six-year-old boy who, on May 8, was returning with his parents from a day at Disneyland. They were a block away from their home in San Ysidro, California, when a speeding pickup truck ran a stop sign and crashed into the passenger side of the family’s Honda Accord, the same side where Lennox was seated in the back seat, secured in his car seat as required by California law. Lennox’s dad, Benjamin, was trapped in the driver’s seat. Benjamin’s wife, Ingrid, crawled out of the front passenger seat to come to the aid of Lennox. She found him unconscious, not breathing, and bleeding from his ears, nostrils and head according to his grandmother.
Lennox suffered major head trauma, and was taken to a nearby children’s hospital where he underwent two surgeries. According to his grandmother, doctors are “cautiously optimistic” that he will make a full recovery despite a long road ahead. For that we are thankful.”
“California, is a magnet for illegal aliens, aided and abetted by the government and the courts. California has several “sanctuary cities,” where illegal aliens take refuge without fear of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and many public school districts that have policies of non-cooperation with ICE. California provides drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens, and has a number of incentives for people to come to the state illegally, such as welfare, Medi-Cal, government-funded healthcare, unemployment benefits, subsidies to attend public universities, and free public education. Let’s not forget Sergio Garcia (not the golfer), an illegal alien who attended law school in California, passed the bar, and in 2013 the California Supreme Court ruled he should be licensed as an attorney despite the fact that he cannot sit on a jury due to his illegal status.” More here.> Is Lennox Lake worth protecting?

ICYMI on Sunday Inside the Resistance: Sunday on Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, we’ll take you inside the resistance that’s promised to fight every syllable that comes out of President Trump’s mouth and every move that he makes. They’re borrowing a page from the enemy–the Tea Party, which emerged in a big way in 2009, disrupting Congressional town hall meetings. We’ll meet some Democrats in the field, attend some of their resistance events, and hear from Republicans about whether they’re being out-organized. Video and transcript here.> The Resistance
Another great read by one of the most trusted journalist there is, Sharply Attkisson.
“Ten months after questions were first raised, there’s no evidence that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia, according to prominent Democrats and Republicans who have reviewed information or received briefings.
It’s too early to call it a closed case, because various investigations into Russian influence in the 2016 campaign and links to Trump associates continue. That reportedly includes probes by the FBI, Republican-led congressional committees, and the military. The FBI has largely stayed mum on its work.”
The problem with the media, politicians, commentators and pundits getting ahead of the evidence or contradicting it entirely, is that it erodes trust in the accuracy of information. If and when real evidence emerges, the public may mistrust what they read and hear.
Here are 12 public statements about lack of evidence by those who have reviewed evidence or been briefed, followed by a sampling of 10 claims against Trump. What were the claims based on if there was no evidence yet?” More here.> 12 times Dems, Repubs said no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion; 10 times people claimed there was
