Moments after an explosive, televised White House shouting match between President Trump and Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, another skirmish broke out in response on the president's favorite cable-news channel. After viewing Trump's threat to shutdown the government if Democrats don't agree to fund his desired border wall, former congressman Jason Chaffetz, now a Trump-boosting Fox News contributor, instantly deployed on Fox's Outnumbered the right-wing conspiracy theory that Democrats actively supported the migrant caravan to boost their midterm electoral chances. Before he could finish his unsubstantiated, deeply partisan claims, however, the afternoon talk show's co-host Marie Harf cut off Chaffetz, dressing him down for spreading conspiracy theories.

Raimundo Atesiano told a federal judge in Miami the pressure simply became too great for him to bear. Crime rates in Biscayne Park, Fla., a village of about 3,200 people, remained stubbornly stagnant, and as the town's new police chief, Atesiano just couldn't stand for it. Plus, he wanted to impress elected officials by achieving a 100 percent crime-solving rate. So he came up with a scheme: Atesiano decided to frame black alleged criminals for some burglaries and car thefts that troubled the mostly white community. read more

Theresa May's government -- which has lurched from one crisis to another ever since she took over as Britain's prime minister in 2016 -- is under siege from her own cabinet, with two high-profile ministers quitting in the space of one hour Thursday morning, the day after she presented the deal she'd struck with the EU for the U.K.'s exit to near-universal criticism.

News travels fast, but fake news travels even faster, especially when there's a political agenda attached to it. One glaring example took place over the weekend, when someone on Twitter posted a photograph of an injured police officer, with a caption that he'd been "brutalized" by the migrant caravan on its way to the United States. Soon, it would spread across the internet, as these things do. read more

Its odd really, Liberals can't seem too wrap their mind around the fact that OpenBorders lowers wages, their response is to FORCE companies to pay more, the result ... not what they expected. I find Healthcare suffering the same phenom; Liberals trying to "engineer" society and economies to be "perfect" ends up a disaster, everytime.

What does open boarders have to do with this? Conservatives are the core reason for the issues with undocumented workers. They replaced people making a living wage with the undocumented they can hire for peanuts starting back in the 80s. That simply encouraged the influx and drove wages lower. That's why they don't want a solution on immigration - Because if people are documented they will expect more because they don't have to live in fear.

Healthcare is suffering from the phenom of Big Pharma and Insurance Lobbyists getting what they want and racking the people over the coals. If the GOP concentrated on fixing the ACA (GOP legislation by the way) instead of wrecking it we would be better off. Yet somehow it's better to fool the ignorant followers than do that. Single payer healthcare isn't not nearly so bad if you just look a little north to Canada. And why yes "engineering" things tends to provide improved results vs "using your guy". Lobbyists and big business have been doing their own engineering of society for decades. I don't think anyone hopes for the economy to be perfect, more equitable would be nice. We as a nation saw some of our best growth and equity when the top tax rate was over 70%.
