Migrant Caravan Rejects Job Offers for Asylum

In a telling report by the Arizona Central, members of the now 7,000-migrant caravan have rejected opportunities to stay and work in Mexico. TIME magazine published details that Mexican officials reportedly attempted to appease the mass of humanity by offering “shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs” if the migrants agreed to remain “in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca.” Unfortunately, the caravan has stalled about 190 miles into Mexico amid claims of a child abduction with Mexican police forming a human blockade on a bridge to prevent their northward travel. The “leaders” of the caravan say they will “rest” for a day, presumably for the negative headline to fade. But this begs we wonder aloud what the endgame is if not for a free ticket to the U.S.

A migrant caravan currently snaking its way from Honduras to the United States’s southern border was intercepted by Mexican government officials on Saturday, who offered the migrants the opportunity to stay in Mexico on work permits — an offer the migrant caravan has reportedly declined.

The Arizona Central reports that the caravan, which now numbers between five and seven thousand people, ran into a Mexican police blockade Saturday, temporarily halting progress on a bridge just outside the Mexican state of Oaxaca.

“Rows of police impeded the migrants’ path, prompting several hours of negotiations between police commanders, immigration officials and caravan representatives,” the AZ Central said. Mexican officials reportedly offered the migrants “shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs” if the migrants agreed to remain “in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca,” according to TIME Magazine.

Impeachment on the “Democratic” House Agenda

While the left has gone quiet on impeachment just two weeks ahead of midterms, some are refusing to follow the talking points and say impeachment and more collusion investigations are in store for America if Democrats win back the House of Representatives on Nov. 6. Breitbart News reports that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) – a key Pelosi ally – promised that Pelosi will be previewing a plethora of investigations should they win and even wrote a Washington Post op-ed about all manner of investigations. Schiff revealed, “There are serious and credible allegations the Russians may possess financial leverage over the president, including perhaps the laundering of Russian money through his businesses. It would be negligent to our national security not to find out.” Clearly, if the left wins and these representatives get their way, priorities will change drastically on Capitol Hill, and none of them will MAGA.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has tried to tamp down talk of impeachment ahead of the midterm elections, vowing to be less partisan if the Democrats retake the House.
“It’s about bringing people together. It’s not about – you know, people say, ‘Well aren’t you going to impeach the president, impeach whatever his name is [that] just went to the court?’” she told CNN on Monday. “I mean there’s a bipartisan, shall we say, inevitability to impeachment, but it’s not a – it’s not something one party does.”

However, some Democrats keep going off-script.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and a close Pelosi ally, is openly previewing the many investigations Democrats would launch into the Trump administration if they retake the House in November.

Gingrich: Media Earned “Enemy of the People” Moniker

In an interview with Axios in the wake of the serial pipe bombs mailed to high-profile Democrats, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called out the media as “the enemy of the people.” After news of the many pipe bombs mailed to several Democrats around the country, the media was quick to seize on the debacle as an opportunity to put the blame squarely on President Trump. The media is doing its level best to unite Republicans just days before the midterm elections in which – if polls remain steady – could be a historic victory for Trump and the GOP.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Thursday that the media have “earned” President Trump’s label of “the enemy of the people.”

Gingrich told Axios that Trump’s rhetoric against the media has helped deepen the partisan divide, but “they’ve earned it.”

Gingrich made similar comments to TMZ. They come a day after several top Democrats and CNN, all of whom have been critical of Trump, were mailed explosive devices.

“Look, I don’t think there’s a direct relationship of any kind,” Gingrich said of Trump’s attacks on his critics, adding that the people who were targeted have “been very hostile to conservatism.”

On Wednesday, Gingrich said anyone behind the bomb threats should “be locked up for the longest possible time as a signal that we will not tolerate threats to anyone.”

Report: Millions in Food Stamps Bankrolling Terrorism

According to a new report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), millions of taxpayer dollars are being trafficked to third-world terrorists through food stamp fraud, and some of it is paying for terrorism right here, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. New York City detectives in the 1980s told a Senate subcommittee that the money was being “unwittingly” funneled to terrorists as folks simply tried to send money back home to relatives overseas through “hawalas,” a sort of trust transferring money through informal agents. Today, Pakistan alone receives more than $7 billion from the U.S. through hawala networks.

Millions of taxpayers dollars trafficked through food stamp fraud went to terrorists who funded their activities at home and abroad, according to an explosive report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).
The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, highlighted several instances where money obtained through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits fraud went to fund acts of terrorism, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.

Although this method of using food stamp fraud money for terrorism has been around since the 1980s, it gained notoriety when New York City detectives testified before a Senate subcommittee about the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.

Keith Ellison Losing Ground in Minnesota

In a clear lead not so long ago in Minnesota’s race for state attorney general, Democrat U.S. Representative Keith Ellison is now trailing Republican Doug Wardlow 43%-36% with just two weeks to go. Last month the same Star Tribune/MPR News Minnesota poll found Ellison ahead by five points, 41%-36%. This is a net loss of nine points for Ellison, who is facing accusations of sexual abuse. Among women voters alone, Ellison has lost seven points. According to the voter map, the entire state except for Hennpin and Ramsey Counties prefer Wardlow. In a state that is perpetually blue, Democrats are increasingly underwater.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The latest poll taken in Minnesota indicates a shocking upset may be about to take place: in the race for state attorney general, Democrat U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, formerly the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is losing to Republican Doug Wardlow, who leads by seven percentage points, 43%-36%.

The Star Tribune/MPR News Minnesota Poll that showed Wardlow with a significant lead reflected a massive change since September, when the same poll found Ellison with a five-point lead, 41%-36%.

The latest poll found GOP voters solidly behind Wardlow, while Democrats were uneasy about supporting Ellison, who has been facing accusations of sexual abuse from his former girlfriend. Ellison led Wardlow in the latest poll in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, but the rest of the state preferred Wardlow.

GOP Could Steal Senate Seat in Indy

According to the latest survey out of Indiana, Republican Mike Braun could steal the U.S. Senate seat from incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly. The internal poll of likely voters conducted Oct. 14-17 was cited by the Braun campaign as showing a 44-40 percent advantage, and they credit the Kavanaugh confirmation fight for the push ahead. An internal memo from Braun’s campaign report, “Since Senator Donnelly committed the equivalent of political suicide by voting against Justice Kavanaugh a little more than two weeks ago, the bottom has fallen out of his campaign.” We can only hope it’s correct.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Indiana Republican Mike Braun is claiming a Brett Kavanaugh surge, citing internal campaign polling with the businessman leading Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly in the days after the Supreme Court justice was confirmed.

The survey of 800 likely voters, conducted Oct. 14-17, showed Braun with a 44-40 percent advantage over Donnelly, who voted against Kavanaugh’s confirmation after a nasty partisan battle that saw his nomination rocked by uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct. Libertarian Lucy Brenton was at 7 percent in this poll, which had a margin of error is 3.46 percentage points.

“Since Senator Donnelly committted the equivalent of political suicide by voting against Justice Kavanaugh a little more than two weeks ago, the bottom has fallen out of his campaign,” reads a Braun campaign polling memorandum from the Republican nominee’s top strategists, Jon Kohan and Josh Kelley.

U.S.-Mexico Reach Deal to Stop Honduran Caravan

So far Mexico is stepping up to do its job to stop the 4,000-strong wave of migrants amassing at its southern border en route to the United States. Mexico, a “pass through” nation to our detriment, has been prompted by the Trump administration to request that the United Nations step up with shelters along its border with Central America to provide humanitarian aid and to keep them from entering Mexico until they are lawfully processed as refugees or legal entrants. According to the Washington Examiner, Mexico has also agreed to immediately take back any migrant who evades this process and reaches the United States. In other words, Trump is speaking loudly and carrying a very big stick.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The U.S. and Mexico have reached an agreement aimed at keeping the 4,000-person migrant caravan from reaching America.

The plan was developed over many months and included a request from Mexico that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees establish shelters along its border with Central American, a senior administration official told Fox News. The goal is to provide humanitarian aid to members of the caravan, and either prevent them from entering Mexico, or process them individually as refugees or as legal entrants.

Mexico has also agreed to take back any migrant who evades their processing system and makes it to the United States. In the past, the U.S. has been required to house those who crossed the border illegally until their cases could be heard, and only after could they return them to their country.

Clinton State Department Provided “Clearly False” Statements During Investigations

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth blasted career State Department officials with accusations of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to thwart investigations. Yes, these were plural investigations — indicating perhaps a pattern of corruption — related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Lamberth also said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” to learn that the FBI granted immunity to Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills.

Here’s more from Fox News…

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth also said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case,” Lamberth said during the hearing.

Feinstein Faces Voter Fury over Kavanaugh

In Califorinia’s “jungle primary” race that is all Democratic, Senator Dianne Feinstein is facing voter backlash and criticism from the left over her “too little, too late” failure to stop the confirmation of newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Her detractors argue that she delayed release of the sexual assault allegations too long. Feinstein still leads in the polls despite her struggles with the core of her base defecting to socialist state senator Kevin de Leon. It’s an odd situation in which Republicans are actually defending Feinstein for being the lesser of two evils. “The last thing they want is de Leon in Washington. It’s a strategic vote to limit socialism.”

Here’s more from Fox News…

For many Republicans nationally, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., became public enemy No. 1 for her leading role in the Democrats’ failed bid to keep Justice Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. Supporters at a recent President Trump rally even made her the new target of the familiar “lock her up” chant.

Meanwhile, her progressive challenger in California’s all-Democrat Senate race, state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, faults her for doing too little to stop the confirmation.

The chorus of criticism from both sides shows how the aftermath of the Kavanaugh fight is weighing uniquely on the senior Democrat’s political race back home. While most Democrats who opposed Kavanaugh were cheered by the base, Feinstein ended up with a lose-lose scenario – condemned by the right for airing the sexual-assault allegations and by the left for not doing so sooner.

MAGA Millions: Trump Rakes in $100 Million for 2020

President Trump’s 2020 war chest is now stacked with $100 million more for his reelection campaign. According to a CNN report: “The President raised more than $18 million during the July-to-September fundraising quarter through his campaign committee and the joint fundraising operations he maintains with the Republican National Committee. Campaign officials say nearly 98% of the money he collected in the third quarter came in the form of contributions of $200 or less indicating strong support among working Americans.” That’s the same statistic President Obama boasted just before he was reelected in 2012. Winning.

Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar has deleted an Instagram post in which he referred to his grandfather, Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar, as a “legend.”
Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar was “was “a senior member of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September that murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics,” according to the Times of Israel, and a deputy for Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader Yasser Arafat.

Earlier this year, when Campa-Najjar’s roots were first reported, he condemned his grandfather’s actions and supported peace.

But in a 2015 Instagram post praising his father, who is a former Palestinian Authority (PA) official and Palestinian ambassador, Campa-Najjar referred to his grandfather as a “legend.” He offered no criticism or condemnation of his grandfather’s terrorist acts.
