Poll: 2-in-3 Americans Oppose “Catch-and-Release”

The latest Harvid/Harris Poll confirms that a clear majority of Americans reject releasing illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States to await their asylum court hearings. Instead, 2-in-3 Americans think self-proclaimed asylum seekers should be immediately turned back to their country of origin to await a hearing from the other side of the border. Per the poll, less than 35% of all voters support such “catch and release” practices by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The poll also reveals that 47% want the asylum system fixed to stop massive fraud and abuse of America’s generosity. Ahead of the 2020 election, these numbers do not bode well for Democratic hopefuls.

The majority of American voters oppose releasing border crossers applying for asylum into the interior of the United States while they await their court hearings, a new poll finds.

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that about 2-in-3 Americans, or 66 percent, said they oppose the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releasing border crossers into the U.S. while they await their asylum claims process. Instead, voters said border crossers should be immediately turned back to Mexico while awaiting their asylum hearing.

Less than 35 percent of all voters said they supported releasing border crossers into the U.S. — including only 32 percent of swing voters and less than 30 percent of self-described “moderates.”

Poll: America Supports Fetal Heartbeat Protections

A new Hill/HarrisX survey reveals that a majority of Americans support banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, much to the consternation of those now determined to defeat Georgia’s latest legislative victory to protect innocent life. According to the poll, 55% of voters believe fetal heartbeat bills or other six-week abortion ban measures are either “just right” or do not go far enough. Alternately, 45% of those polled call such measures “too restrictive.” When split by age groups, younger voters were revealed as more likely to support fetal heartbeat protections. This comes as a massive blow to the pro-abort Left, who are clearly losing the culture war on abortion.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Among all the hullabaloo over the state of Alabama’s new, strict pro-life law, it is almost easy to forget that the hot-button abortion topic prior to this week was actually Georgia’s slightly less strict pro-life law which would ban all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected (typically around six weeks). The Daily Wire previously explained the Georgia legislation, which has since been signed into law by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp:

H.B. 481 states that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” and requires “physicians performing abortions to determine the existence of a detectable human heartbeat before performing an abortion,” stating, “it shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize unborn children as natural persons,” and asserting “unless otherwise provided by law, any natural person, including an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, shall be included in population based determinations.”

IG Probe into FISA Abuse “Devastating”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity reported to viewers on Wednesday that his sources reveal that not only is Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz “done” investigating anti-Trump FISA abuse but also that the findings are “devastating.” Hannity’s comments follow the announcement by Attorney General Bill Barr of his appointment of Connecticut Attorney General John Durham to dig into the “Deep State” collusion against then candidate Donald Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign. This might explain why House Democrats have ratcheted up their campaign to investigate President Trump in hopes of distracting from what is almost certain to evolve into a Watergate-level conspiracy just in time for the 2020 election.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Conservative commentator Sean Hannity said on his Fox News program Wednesday night that his sources say the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation into abuse by the FBI of FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign is “done” — and “it’s devastating.” The conservative host’s comments come a few days after it was revealed that Attorney General William Barr has appointed Connecticut’s top prosecutor John Durham to investigate the increasingly suspicious origins of the Trump-Russia probe amid new troubling revelations.

In comments reported by the Washington Examiner, Hannity first brought up Inspector General Michael Horowitiz’s FISA abuse probe in a discussion with Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett and Fox contributor former Rep. Jason Chaffetz. “I have sources telling me that Horowitz perhaps is even finished with his report and certainly [Attorney General William Barr] has been briefed on what is coming,” said Hannity.

Comey: Brennan Pushed “Pee” Dossier in 2016

An email chain from late 2016 shows disgraced former FBI Director James Comey telling his staff that Obama loyalist CIA Director John Brennan insisted that the anti-Trump Steele “pee” dossier be included in the January 6, 2017, U.S. Intelligence Community report, which kicked off the Russia collusion investigation. That same document, despite never being verified, was successfully used to obtain three of the four FISA warrants-with Comey signing ALL of the applications-used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. This revelation adds more fuel to the fire raging that may take down numerous former Obama officials with a conspiracy now involving several agencies, namely the DOJ, CIA, and Department of State.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Disgraced ex-FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director turned anti-Trump activist John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence and Trump critic James Clapper are the subjects of a dispute over which top Obama administration officials advocated for the infamous Steele dossier to be utilized as evidence in the Russia collusion investigation.

The argument erupted into the open with a Brennan surrogate being quoted in the news media opposing Comey not long after Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.

The fiasco was kicked into high gear after Fox News cited “sources familiar with the records” pointing to an email chain from late-2016 showing Comey allegedly telling FBI employees that it was Brennan who insisted that the anti-Trump dossier be included in a January 6, 2017 U.S. Intelligence Community report, known as the ICA, assessing Russian interference efforts.

Biden Says Gore Won 2000 Election

Joe Biden is climbing aboard the Left’s election loss denial bandwagon, claiming that Al Gore did NOT lose the 2000 presidential election. Biden’s fomenting of political conspiracy came during a conversation about his 1990s crime bill with voters in Nashua, New Hampshire. Predictably, he blamed President George W. Bush for crime getting worse… before alleging the former president did not actually win the 2000 election. “I wouldn’t say lost, when a hanging chad sort of did a few things,” quipped Biden. Naturally, he conveniently forgot about the investigation in 2001, which concluded that Bush won fair and square even without the Supreme Court upholding his victory.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Former Vice President Joe Biden dipped into election conspiracy territory on Tuesday, arguing that former Vice President Al Gore did not lose the presidential election in 2000.

During a conversation about his nineties-era crime bill, Biden said that it got worse after Gore lost the election.

“I wouldn’t say lost, when a hanging chad sort of did a few things,” he said to voters in Nashua, New Hampshire at a campaign stop.

Biden’s remark continues a history of doubt that Biden has cast on the results of the 2000 election.

In 2013, then-Vice President Biden insisted to Gore during a fundraiser that he had actually won the 2000 election.

Rosenstein Blasts Comey for Overt Bias

Former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein slammed ousted FBI Director James Comey Monday during remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC). He specifically went after Comey for his recent attack on both Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr, alleging they lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.” Rosenstein pushed back, arguing that Comey’s overt bias and undermining the integrity of the Russia and Hillary Clinton investigations trampled “bright lines that should never be crossed.” The Deep State continues intramural war like crabs in a bucket, and with AG Barr’s special investigator, things will only get worse for them. Get your popcorn ready.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Rod Rosenstein unloaded on former FBI Director James Comey in remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) on Monday evening, slamming Comey’s turn as a “partisan pundit,” reiterating that he deserved to be fired, and faulting him for trampling “bright lines that should never be crossed.”

Rosenstein formally stepped aside as deputy attorney general two days ago. His speech specifically took aim at Comey’s comments earlier this month implying that Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.”

Comey also derided Rosenstein’s “character” and suggested his “soul” had been consumed “in small bites.” The former FBI boss, who has taken to posting numerous photographs of himself in nature staring wistfully at trees and roadways since leaving public office, had been showered with media attention in recent months, and his memoir earned him over $2 million.

Obama Tracked Hillary Email FOIA Request

The government watchdogs at Judicial Watch just released a batch of emails, which were obtained only after suing the federal government, that show the Obama White House monitored a critical FOIA request for Hillary Clinton’s personal emails. This is the same request that was ultimately rejected by the State Department in 2013, claiming that no such records existed. “These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton revealed. It was only publicly revealed in March 2015 by the New York Times that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegally used a personal email account on her secret server-yet another smoking gun in the hands of the Obama White House.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The Obama White House kept tabs on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email accounts that the State Department improperly denied, according to newly released emails.

The emails, which were provided to Judicial Watch, show for the first time that the Obama White House was aware of the Clinton-related FOIA request, which the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) submitted to the State Department in December 2012.

The State Department denied the request in May 2013, claiming that no responsive records existed. That despite officials at the State Department, the White House and even President Obama himself knowing that Clinton used a personal email account for government business.

Warren: “Nobody in America Succeeds on Their Own”

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is going full-Obama in her 2020 messaging diminishing the role of hard work in success. Warren wrote in an op-ed for CNN Business Perspectives: “Nobody in America succeeds on their own. Government-funded labs are fueling world-changing innovations. Much of American wealth was built through government-sponsored home equity. Strong American businesses are powered by American workers educated in public schools. Their goods are brought to market on roads funded by taxpayers.” Critics are now comparing Pocahontas’ remarks to ones Obama made in 2012 when he so memorably said, “If you’ve got a business-you didn’t build that.” Good luck with that, Lizzy.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would like to follow in Barack Obama’s footsteps by winning the White House in 2020 and she seems to be taking a cue from the former president’s now infamous “If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that” speech in 2012.

Like Obama, Warren believes it is not American ingenuity and hard work but the federal government that makes the people and the country great.

Warren wrote in an op-ed for CNN Business Perspectives:

Democrats Have Nowhere to Hide

Defeated Democrats are grasping at straws to impeach America’s Attorney General Bill Barr after their best hope for 2020-the collusion delusion-went up in smoke. Despite their desperate efforts to put the Russia investigation on life support, Barr is refusing to cave to their hysterics, and it may only get worse for them if Barr follows the obvious trail of evidence against Obama loyalists Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe. Instead of impeachment, Democrats’ insistence on keeping the issue alive may come back to bite them in 2020 in a very big way.

Here’s more from Real Clear Politics…

Democrats have grown infuriated by Attorney General William Barr’s indifference to their hysteria over the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Barr recently released a brief summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions that Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians to warp the 2016 election. Barr added that Mueller had not found enough evidence to recommend that Trump be indicted for obstruction of justice for the non-crime of collusion.

Progressives, who for 22 months had insisted that Trump was a Russian asset, were stunned. But only for a few hours.

Almost immediately, they redirected their fury toward Barr’s summation of the Mueller report. Yet few rational people contested Barr’s synopses about collusion and obstruction.

FBI “Well Aware the Dossier was a Lie”

A new document brought to light by a Citizens United lawsuit reveals that the Obama DOJ was “well aware” that the infamous Steele dossier used to launch the RussiaGate investigation was a LIE! “[O]fficials at the FBI and DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie-from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” CU’s Mark Meadows revealed. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.” A particularly condemning line from the email from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, who met with Steele in October 2016: Steele’s client “… is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8.” That’s November 8, as in Election Day 2016. How many smoking guns need we find before indictments are issued?

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A newly-uncovered document suggests that the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), including the FBI, was “well aware” that foreign agent Christopher Steele was trying to interfere in the 2016 presidential election with disinformation — and yet still used his materials to spy on American citizens and the Trump campaign, according to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

“[O]fficials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday in a statement to The Hill’s John Solomon. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”
