In a memo outlining the proposal that was obtained by The Washington Post, officials say threatening adults with criminal charges and prison time would be the ��most effective�� way to reverse the steadily rising number of attempted crossings.

If approved, the zero-tolerance measures could split up thousands of families, although officials say they would not prosecute those who turn themselves in at legal ports of entry and claim asylum. Federal officials say 67 percent of migrants who claimed asylum in the first quarter of this fiscal year crossed the border illegally.

Right, the US prison population isn't quite big enough.

Lobbiests from the private sector prisons system may very well be driving this sort of thing.

They need growth, man ... for their shareholders.

America has put a lot of money into Penitentiary housing for young black men, they can't really afford a high vacancy rate.

On Pompeo as Sec State - how is this draining the swamp?

Tillerson? Well, Tillerson could be argued to be a non swamp creature - as he owned the swamp rather than inhabited it - but Pompeo is simply one more career politician. Just because he's a Tea Party nutcase doesn't mean he doesn't reside in Swamptown, USA.

Buddy, you come from a crumbling, dysfuncional nation with a private sector prison system that DEMANDS growth and you're calling me "dumb". Your country is a planet-wide joke.

Exclusive: NRA gathers documents amid scrutiny over ties to Kremlin-linked banker


The National Rifle Association is setting aside years of documents related to its interactions with a Kremlin-linked banker, as the gun-rights group appears to be bracing for a possible investigation, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The NRA has faced fresh scrutiny from congressional investigators about its finances and ties to Alexander Torshin, one of the 17 prominent Russian government officials the US Treasury Department recently slapped with sanctions. The gun-rights group has said it is reexamining its relationship with Torshin, who is a lifetime NRA member, in the wake of the sanctions.

The renewed attention has highlighted the close-knit if sometimes uneasy alliance between top NRA officials and Torshin -- a relationship that ensnared members of Trump's team during the presidential campaign, inviting further congressional scrutiny.

Clever - but David Frum forecast the moral collapse of the GOP several years ago. With people like Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan in the party it looks like he got everything right. Frum BTW is a conservative who supported G.W. Bush and John McCain.

They predicted the collapse of the GOP in 2006 after the midterms. They were further emboldened in 2008. But then 2010 saw the beginning the worse rout of Democrats from local to federal elections.

Frum... you mean he's a RINO.

It's all cyclical.

I would say that he is a Reagan style conservative. There don't seem to be any of them left in a party that has thrown away its traditional values.

Trump makes himself the axis on which events in Asia and Europe spin

The dramatic turn of events on the Korean Peninsula was the capstone to a week that crystallized the ways the president has established his foreign policy approach.

The GOP did collapse. It was replaced by a Libertarian/Tea Bagger/Alt Right/Fox News/Billionaire Con-man/Spineless Republican/Ignorant Hillbilly coalition.

Ronny Jackson, whom Trump unsuccessfully nominated to be VA chief, won��t return to his job as the president��s personal physician

The Navy rear admiral will not return to his role as the president��s personal physician, a White House official said Sunday.
Jackson, who withdrew as Trump��s choice to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs last week, will stay on as part of the White House medical unit, the official said. Sean Conley, who took over Jackson��s responsibilities after his nomination, will remain in the role as Trump��s personal doctor.
Jackson, a former combat physician, withdrew his nomination Thursday after the office of Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) released allegations that Jackson drank on the job, overprescribed medication and presided over a toxic work environment at the White House.
Jackson has denied the allegations against him, which have proved difficult to verify or disprove.

I guess BHO should have done a better job of vetting if the allegations are true.

Trump-allied House conservatives draft articles of impeachment against Rosenstein as a 'last resort'




Conservative House allies of President Trump are targeting Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the ongoing special counsel investigation, setting up a possible GOP showdown over the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The document, which was obtained by The Washington Post, underscores the growing chasm between congressional Republican leaders, who have maintained for months that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III should be allowed to proceed, and rank-and-file GOP lawmakers who have sought to end his inquiry.

The draft articles are unlikely to garner enough support to move forward, but could serve as a provocative political weapon for conservatives in their showdown with the Justice Department.

Seems that the Trump chumps are getting desperate and even more viscous.

This really is the UGLIEST administration (US) in current history.
