Embarrassing Setback: RINO Ryan Cancels Immigration Votes In House – Washington Times

Staring at a certain defeat, House Republicans canceled votes on their immigration compromise Thursday – an embarrassing setback for leaders who thought they had finally been able to wrangle some unanimity on an issue that has bedeviled them for years.

Lawmakers emerged from a closed-door evening meeting to say their new goal is a vote sometime next week, after they try to make tweaks to win over conservatives while keeping moderates on board.

The vote on the “moderate” compromise bill was postponed just hours after a more conservative bill failed in the House by a 231-193 vote. More than three dozen Republicans joined Democrats to kill the legislation.

Worried about a twin rejection on the same day, Republican leaders decided on a cooling-off period.

“The worst thing for us to do would be to fail,” said Rep. Tom Cole, Oklahoma Republican. “I think people desperately want to get to ‘yes.’”…

Fake News Update: Time Magazine’s Shocking Cover Of Trump And Crying Illegal Alien Child Is A Total Lie – Daily Wire
.

.
This week, TIME magazine featured a picture of a crying illegal immigrant child on its cover. The child was supposedly separated from her parents; over her looms Donald Trump, smugly staring down at her.

There’s only one problem: the cover is total bull. It’s not just total bull because Trump hasn’t implemented a newly-developed policy of separating children from parents – that’s an operation of law under the Flores settlement as modified by a 2016 Ninth Circuit court ruling. It’s bull because this particular child wasn’t separated from her mother, her mother wasn’t fleeing persecution but did falsely claim asylum, her mother did put the child in danger, and Trump was targeted by the media for treating this mother and child exactly the same way the Obama administration would have…

Supreme Court Affirms Privacy Rights Of Cellphone Users In ‘Big Brother’ Case – Fox News

The Justice Department suffered a digital-age defeat Friday at the Supreme Court, which sided with the privacy rights of cellphone users in a dispute over law enforcement tracking their movements.

In a 5-4 ruling, the court said law enforcement generally will need a warrant for such searches. Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote.

At issue is whether the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment requires a search warrant for the government to access a person’s cellphone location history. It is the latest foray by the justices into how laws should be tailored to keep up with technological advances.

The stakes were enormous, since this judicial precedent could be applied more broadly, including government access to Internet, bank, credit card and telephone records.

Roberts in his opinion said going forward, warrants are needed. “We decline to grant the state unrestricted access to a wireless carrier’s database of physical location information,” he wrote.

Charles Krauthammer, Conservative Commentator And Pulitzer Prize Winner, Dead At 68 – Fox News
.

.
Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators, died Thursday. He was 68.

His death had been expected after he wrote a heartbreaking letter to colleagues, friends and viewers on June 8 that said in part “I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me…

Supreme Court Usurps Power Of Congress, Regulates Interstate Commerce – Daily Signal

Thursday’s Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. threatens to upend online commerce, drive thousands of small entrepreneurs out of business, and hike prices for hundreds of millions of consumers.

Under prior law, states could not force remote retailers to collect and remit sales taxes on their behalf unless the business had a “physical presence” within the state. This requirement no longer applies, potentially saddling remote retailers – many of whom are small businesses – with onerous compliance costs related to the nation’s 12,000 plus taxing jurisdictions, many with their own rates, bases, rules, and regulations.

Congress remains the proper place to address the issue of online sales taxation. Under the commerce clause of the Constitution, Congress alone possesses the ultimate power – delegated by the states at the nation’s founding – to regulate interstate commerce.

Thursday’s ruling further highlights the need for congressional action adequately balancing the interests of competing stakeholders with national economic growth…

President Trump Draws Impressive Crowds To Duluth Campaign Rally – Brainerd Dispatch
.

.
It wasn’t easy getting into the Trump campaign rally Wednesday, June 20, at the Amsoil Arena, situated on Duluth’s harbor front.

But they came, thousands of of them – Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters alike; throngs of red Make America Great Again hats and white Guy Fawkes masks, with a whole spectrum of human beings in between.

They fought their way through clogged thoroughfares despite the closed exits. They wove their way into limited parking spots throughout downtown, then they took the detours by foot when “the blue bridge” (a pedestrian lift bridge spanning Minnesota Slip) closed down. And they waited – many of them for more than four hours – in 80-degree temperatures…

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich Resigns After ‘Consensual Relationship With An Intel Employee’ – USA Today

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich resigned suddenly after a “past consensual relationship with an Intel employee” came to light, the company said Thursday.

His unexpected exit comes after an internal and external investigation ordered by the company “confirmed a violation of Intel’s non-fraternization policy, which applies to all managers,” Intel said in a statement.

“Given the expectation that all employees will respect Intel’s values and adhere to the company’s code of conduct, the board has accepted Mr. Krzanich’s resignation,” Intel said.

Intel chief financial officer Robert Swan, a former CFO of eBay, was appointed as interim CEO.

Details of Krzanich’s relationship were not immediately disclosed, including the identity of his romantic partner. His departure comes amid heightened scrutiny of workplace relationships between powerful corporate executives and their colleagues…

Laurence Key, who is accused of calling Mast’s office 478 times, allegedly told an intern at Mast’s office, “I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” The TC Palm reported.

Illegal Aliens Fatally Separate American Parents And Children – Daniel Greenfield

In 2008, Colorado separated a Jewish boy from his parents.

Marten Kudlis was separated from his parents while waiting for his mother to bring him his ice cream. The 3-year-old boy who had just been playing in the park never got his ice cream.

Instead Francis Hernandez, an illegal alien driving 81 miles an hour, slammed into a pickup truck, killing the two women inside, and smashing it through the glass wall of the Baskin Robbins.

Blood and broken glass covered the floor. Little Marten, who had just learned to ride a bike, died of a slashed jugular vein and was buried with a teddy bear.

Francis Hernandez had been arrested 16 times in 5 years without ever being turned over to immigration authorities. That failure to enforce immigration law separated a little boy from his family forever.

Advocates for illegal migration claim to be outraged by family separation…

Starbucks Closing 150 Stores After Losing Money Due To ‘Anti-Bias’ Training – Townhall

Starbucks announced Tuesday that it is closing 150 of its U.S. stores in the next year, three times as many as the chain normally closes in that time period.

“While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of our cost increases are appropriate investments for the future, our recent performance does not reflect the potential of our exceptional brand and is not acceptable,” Starbucks Chief Executive Officer Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

In May, Starbucks closed all of its more than 8,000 U.S. stores for an afternoon so that their employees could participate in “racial bias training” following an incident in Philadelphia in which a store employee called the police on two black men who were arrested for trespassing…

Disney Ups Its Bid For Fox To $71.3 Billion – Deadline Hollywood

The Walt Disney Company has boosted its bid for the studio and cable network assets of 21st Century Fox to $71.3 billion in cash and stock.

The offer is nearly $19 billion richer than the one Fox accepted last December, and it’s nearly 10% ahead of the $65 billion one Comcast submitted last week. Most analysts and industry observers had expected Disney to match Comcast, but not go so much higher.

The aggressive counter is a sign of the intensity of the M&A climate, in which AT&T finally closed its purchase of Time Warner and other traditional media companies are urgently seeking dance partners.

Disney is offering $38 per share in cash and stock, and taking on $13.8B of Fox’s net debt, which would increase the total transaction to $85.1B. It announced the counter on the same day that Fox’s board was scheduled to meet and assess the Comcast bid for the company…

Gosport Hospital Deaths: Up To 650 Patients Died After Being Prescribed Opioids ‘Without Medical Justification’ – Portsmouth News

At least 456 patients died after being given opioids ‘without medical justification’ at a Gosport hospital where ‘there was a disregard for human life,’ a major report has found. Another 200 ‘probably’ had their lives shortened at Gosport War Memorial hospital as a direct result of the prescribing the drugs without justification.

On the day the Gosport Independent Panel’s report was published, Bishop James Jones said there was an ‘institutionalised practice of shortening lives through prescribing and administering opioids without medical justification at the hospital’.

Rt Rev Jones has now called on Hampshire police’s chief constable, the home secretary Sajid Javid and health secretary Jeremy Hunt to ‘act accordingly’. Retired GP Dr Jane Barton, who was at the time clinical assistant on the wards, was ‘responsible for the practice of prescribing which prevailed on the wards,’ the bishop said.

But he said it was ‘not for the panel to ascribe the criminal or civil liability’…

Canada Becomes Second Country To Legalize Weed – Zero Hedge

Canada is on track to become the first G-7 nation to legalize marijuana, and the second country in the world (after Uruguay), after its Senate approved legislation in a 52-29 vote, paving the way for recreational cannabis to be legally bought and sold within the next few months.

The vote clears the way for the government in Ottawa to take the final step: The ceremonial approval of by the governor-general that would make Bill C-45 law.

Still, not all of the details have been ironed out. For example, the date for when the law would take effect remains unclear. And lawmakers have said it will take a few months for producers and retail stores to stock up and get ready for legal sales to begin, according to Bloomberg…

AG Sessions Talking To Congress About Using DNA Tests To Verify Parents Of Immigrant Children – Daily Caller

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is exploring the possibility of using DNA tests to verify the parentage of illegal alien adults who attempt to cross the southern border with children, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said in a statement Tuesday after interviewing Sessions on his radio show Washington Watch.

“Sessions is talking to congressional members and is hoping for a legislative fix. The AG wants an immigration policy that is just, fair and enforceable. They talked about making sure that these really are the parents of these kids,” Perkins said.

He continued, “They are looking at how to use DNA tests in the field to verify they are parents and not traffickers. The reality is if American parents put their kids through what these immigrant parents have done to their kids – they would be charged with child abuse.”

Around 12,000 children are currently in the custody of Health and Human Services after entering the United States…

FBI Agent Who Said ‘We’ll Stop’ Trump From Becoming President Escorted From Building – Chicago Tribune

The FBI agent who was removed from the special counsel investigation for sending anti-Trump texts was escorted from the FBI building Friday and effectively relieved of work responsibilities – though he technically remains an FBI agent, his lawyer said.

Peter Strzok already had been re-assigned to the FBI’s Human Resources Division after he was taken off Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s team, though the move last week effectively took him off even that assignment.

His lawyer, Aitan Goelman, said in a statement, that Strzok was “being put through a highly questionable process,” and those in the public should be concerned about how politics had “been allowed to undermine due process and the legal protections owed to someone who has served his country for so long.”…

Trump Reaffirms Need For Zero-Tolerance Immigration Policy – Washington Times

President Trump continued Monday’s line of defense on Tuesday, reaffirming the need for his hard-line border policies and accused Democrats of wanting illegal immigration to boost their voter count.

Mr. Trump stood by the zero-tolerance policy of arresting any immigrant who does not enter at a port of authority.

We must always arrest people coming into our Country illegally. Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a very dangerous trip, and only 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our Country illegally on numerous occasions. – Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2018

T-Mobile, Sprint File For Approval Of $26 Billion Merger – The Hill

T-Mobile and Sprint on Tuesday laid out the case for a $26 billion merger, filing for approval at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

In the 678-page document, the two companies argue that the combination, which they’re calling “New T-Mobile,” will allow them to build a 5th-generation wireless network that would rival those of AT&T and Verizon.

The communications companies are framing the deal as essential for U.S. efforts to build out 5G capabilities.

“We cannot relinquish our leadership here and the New T-Mobile will deliver on these capabilities within the first couple of years of bringing these two companies together,” T-Mobile CEO John Legere wrote in a blog post on Tuesday. “As a country we cannot afford to miss this opportunity and the New T-Mobile is fully prepared to do our part, and to do it fast!”…
