Three cheers for refugee reduction! (Michelle Malkin)
Over the weekend, President Donald Trump approved a new annual refugee cap of 18,000, the lowest since the U.S. program began in 1980. The reduction follows news that America took a pause last month and refused to admit any new refugees. On economic, public safety and national security grounds, this is a very good thing for the 325 million people already in our country. But you wouldn’t know it from the grim headlines and hysterical condemnations by globalist zealots and media sympathizers.
CNN International led the open borders funeral procession last week, with a report decrying, “No refugees will be resettled in the US in October, leaving hundreds in limbo around the world.” U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., hyperventilated that “Donald Trump is trying to destroy the very heart of this nation. I won’t let him.” Social justice group CARE bemoaned this “dark moment in our nation’s history.” Human Rights First complained that Trump’s proposal is “crippling the United States’ status as a global leader in refugee resettlement.” [Read More]
Mark Zaid, the attorney for the Ukraine call whistleblower, on Thursday defended a series of tweets from 2017 in which he predicted a “coup” against President Trump and promised to “get rid of him” — saying in a statement the tweets referred to “a completely lawful process.”
Shortly after the publication of a Fox News article Wednesday highlighting the stream of anti-Trump tweets, Trump himself lambasted Zaid during a rally in Louisiana, calling the attorney “disgraceful.” [Read More]
One notable and little-reported conclusion emerging from the House Democratic impeachment proceedings is a consensus among some foreign policy professionals that President Trump’s Ukraine policy has been an improvement over President Barack Obama’s.
Ukraine was an occasionally hot issue in the 2016 campaign for all the wrong reasons. At the Republican convention, a false headline in the Washington Post, “Trump campaign guts GOP’s anti-Russia stance on Ukraine,” gave birth to a false narrative that candidate Trump, desperate to appease Vladimir Putin, would undermine U.S. support for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.

Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former FOX News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, debated the hosts of ABC’s “The View” Thursday afternoon where he defended his father against impeachment charges, defended his decision to tweet the name of the Ukraine whistleblower, and blasted the ABC network for getting CBS to fire the person who leaked a hot mich video of a reporter saying they spiked the Jeffrey Epstein story three years ago.
“Let’s not kid ourselves,” he said. “ABC right now is chasing down a whistleblower about all of the Epstein stuff because those stories were killed. So if we’re going to have the conversation about the outrage of whistleblowers you worked with CBS to out the whistleblower.” [Read More]
Assigning adolescents some household responsibilities once they reach a certain age has been a staple of responsible parenting for centuries. Mundane tasks like vacuuming, taking out the garbage, or cleaning their room are intended to teach children the basics of taking care of themselves, not relying on their parents for everything, and self-control. On the surface, it would seem that this age-old practice has stood the test of time and is undeniably a pillar of raising a responsible, well-adjusted member of society. Surprisingly, a new study finds that childhood chores may not help kids develop self-control after all. [Read More]
