Former ICE Director Thomas Homan rendered socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez utterly speechless on Friday during a congressional hearing after the 29-year-old former bartender tried to grill him about immigration-related policies.

“It says the official recommendation, there were three different options presented, the third included the option for family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This initiative would pursue prosecution of all amenable adults including those presenting with a family unit.

“Mr. Homan, your name is on this, is this correct?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“Yes, I signed that memo,” Homan replied.

“So, you are the author of the family separation policy?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“I’m not the author of this memo,” Homan replied.

“You’re not the author, but you signed the memo?” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.

“Yes, a zero tolerance memo,” Homan responded.

“So, you provided the official recommendation to Secretary Neilson on families for the United States to pursue family separation?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“I gave Secretary Nielson numerous recommendations on how to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“But it says here that you, you gave her numerous options but the recommendation was option three, family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“What I’m saying this is not the only paper where we had given the secretary numerous options to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“And so the recommendation of the many that you recommended, you recommended family separations?” Ocasio-Cortez continued to press as she seemed unable to understand Homan’s previous responses.

“I recommended zero tolerance,” Homan responded.

“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.

“The same as is whatever U.S. citizen parent gets arrested when they’re with a child,” Homan said.

“Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated children from their parents,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, again not seeming to understand Homan.

“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m gonna be separated,” Homan responded. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from their family.”

“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” Ocasio-Cortez said, refusing to acknowledge the majority of people entering the U.S. at the southern border are not legitimate asylum seekers.

“When you’re in the country illegally, it’s a violation 8 United States Code 13:25,” Homan responded.

“Seeking asylum is legal,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“If you want to seek asylum you go through the port of entry, you do it the legal way,” Homan fired back. “The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”

Ocasio-Cortez had no response for Homan and immediately moved on to question other people.

The Trump administration has started notifying illegal aliens that they are going to be subjected to massive fines — up to nearly $500,000 — for failing to leave the United States after being ordered to do so.

“The Department of Homeland Security sent out a batch of notices across the country to targeted individuals ordering them to pay fines of up to nearly $500,000 for ‘failing to depart the U.S. as previously agreed,’ among other factors,” NPR reported. “The letters come as the Trump administration prepares to carry out delayed immigration sweeps of migrant families who have received deportation orders. President Trump said Monday, while signing legislation providing $4.6 billion in funding to address the influx of migrants from Central America, that the immigration raids will begin after the July 4 holiday if Congress can’t pass new restrictions on asylum laws.”

NPR obtained a notice that was sent by a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer to an illegal alien notifying them that “It is the intention of ICE to order you pay a fine in the amount of $497,777.”

ICE spokesman Matthew Bourke told NPR: “ICE is committed to using various enforcement methods — including arrest, detention, technological monitoring and financial penalties — to enforce U.S. immigration law and maintain the integrity of legal orders issued by judges.”

NPR added that ICE has said that the Immigration and Nationality Act allows the government the authority to impose fines against illegal aliens for not leaving the country.

This latest development in the administration’s war on illegal immigration comes as the president recently announced that ICE will likely be conducting immigration raids after July 4 targeting those who are in the country illegally.

Trump has also rattled off multiple tweets this week about the topic, ranging from adding the citizenship question on the 2020 census to calling out Democrats for failing to work with the administration to help solve the crisis on the southern border.

Tweets from Trump on the subject include:

“The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

“Our Border Patrol people are not hospital workers, doctors or nurses. The Democrats bad Immigration Laws, which could be easily fixed, are the problem. Great job by Border Patrol, above and beyond. Many of these illegals aliens are living far better now than where they came from, and in far safer conditions. No matter how good things actually look, even if perfect, the Democrat visitors will act shocked & aghast at how terrible things are. Just Pols. If they really want to fix them, change the Immigration Laws and Loopholes. So easy to do!”

“Now, if you really want to fix the Crisis at the Southern Border, both humanitarian and otherwise, tell migrants not to come into our country unless they are willing to do so legally, and hopefully through a system based on Merit. This way we have no problems at all!”

“If Illegal Immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built or refitted detentions centers, just tell them not to come. All problems solved!”

“So important for our Country that the very simple and basic “Are you a Citizen of the United States?” question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census. Department of Commerce and the Department of Justice are working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!”

Former Iranian Minister of Defense General Hossein Dehghan, currently an advisor for defense affairs to Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei, says that Iran will put America in “the garbage bin of history” if attacked and will eliminate Israel from “the face of the earth.”

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported that Dehghan made the comments on June 20 in an interview on Al-Nujaba TV (Iraq).

“It has become clear that what is important to the (Americans) is to protect the lives of their soldiers, and the equipment in their bases in the region,” Dehghan said. “They know full well that most of those bases are within the range of our missiles, and that our military can totally obliterate those bases. They consider this even before they take into account the lives and property of their allies.”

“Trump proved once again that he is merely an agent of his administration’s interests, that a war in this region would not be a walk in the park, that the United States is by no means ready for war, and that is completely understands how strong Iran is,” Dehghan continued. “What we understand from the behavior of the Americans is that they fear very much the break out of a war in the region. They are not ready for this, and they cannot assemble an international coalition, because there is no U.N. resolution to begin with. They don’t have global legal consensus to do this.”

“Israel has realized that this war would not be a walk in the park. The flame of this war will move immediately to Israel,” Dehghan concluded. “Israel knows that Iran will erase its entity and uproot it from existence in case of a war. In my personal opinion, this war will not take place – not because America does not want war, but because Iran is strong enough to engage in confrontation. Iran would achieve a great victory, and America would find itself in the garbage bin of history. There would no longer be an Israel on the land of Palestine. We would totally erase it from the face of the earth.”

Dehghan’s remarks come as Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, has continued to escalate tensions in the Middle East by attacking multiple oil tankers and shooting down a U.S. military drone.

President Donald Trump released a hilarious video on his Twitter account on Friday that essentially declared himself to be president forever, in what is a giant troll aimed at the media and the Democratic Party.

The video features a cover from TIME Magazine that shows Trump campaign yard signs lasting well beyond 2020. The video then alters the cover to show the campaign campaign yard signs extending thousands of years into the future while “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt, by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg plays in the background.

WATCH:

The video may be in response to Politico report today that once again speculated that Trump may not leave office if he loses in the 2020 election.

Alleged journalists, leftists, and members of the Democratic Party freaked out in response to the video.

Anya Parampil tweeted: “What I want to know is WHO conceptualized this insanity?!”

Emma Vigeland tweeted: “I’m not one to get riled up over Trump tweets, but this one is pretty damn scary. This man doesn’t believe in a democratic form of government, and now he’s putting feelers out there. He has to be defeated.”

Kathryn Watson tweeted: “What is happening”

Brooke Binkowski tweeted: “‘It’s just a joke'”

Rabia O’Chaudry tweeted: “Tyrants and narcissists always think they will live forever”

Seth Abramson tweeted: “What Trump and his fans misunderstand—because they experience reality on a different continuum—is that voters and media would allow basically any POTUS of either party to quip once or twice about a third (or more) term. Trump gets heat because THIS continuum thinks he’s unstable.”

Jeet Heer tweeted: “You know who else wanted to be a God-Emperor till the end of time?* Correct answer: Leto Atreides II. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen could also work.”

Steve Kiggins tweeted: “Are we a dictatorship now? What is this?”

Sasha Stone tweeted: “Never forget, folks. Trump didn’t WIN. We lost. We failed to stop him because we are purity seeking, deeply privileged, entitled folks who do not know how to suck it up and get the job done. Until we do we will keep losing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday night that for the first time in his memory he can finally agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about something — he is “the Grim Reaper” and he is here to kill the socialist agenda of the Democratic Party.

Earlier on Thursday Pelosi held a news conference where she laid out in a presentation all of the far-left policy proposals from the Democratic Party that McConnell is blocking.

Pelosi even tweeted out the graphic, writing: “[McConnell] is so obsessed with blocking votes on commonsense solutions passed by the House, he’s taken to calling himself ‘the Grim Reaper.’ But Americans are tired of waiting – they want action on their priorities now.”

“She’s got it right,” McConnell said. “She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”

“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,” McConnell continued. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”

“They are on their way to doing some additional things, in addition to things they’ve already done — the Green New Deal, Medicare For All,” McConnell added. “By the way, you may have mentioned this on your show, but they planned to make the District of Columbia a state, that will give them two new Democratic Senators, Puerto Rico a state, that will give them two more Democratic Senators, and as a former supreme court clerk yourself, you’ve surely noticed that they plan to expand to the Supreme Court. This is full bore socialism on the march in the House and yeah, as long as I’m the Majority Leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere.”

Hours after President Donald Trump announced that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders would be leaving her position at the end of the month, a name emerged from multiple sources close to the president for who should be Sanders’ replacement.

Stephanie Grisham, the White House Director of Communications for first lady Melania Trump, has been a loyal soldier fighting to advance Trump’s agenda dating all the way back to his first month on the campaign trail in 2015 when she was a low-level press staffer.

In December, The Washington Post noted that Grisham has grown to become “one of the more powerful figures in the ever-evolving Trump White House” and referred to Grisham as “Melania Trump’s enforcer.”

A source close to the White House told The Daily Wire on Thursday night Grisham “has proven herself to be a stone-cold killer” and that “no one else comes close” to being able to match Grisham in her ability to command problems that arise.

The source said that Grisham was a “risk-free move for the administration in the run-up to perhaps the most important election in American history.”

“Grisham is pure Trump,” the source said. “She holds down the East Wing with ease and has no loyalties to any faction within the Republican Party. Members of the first family love her and know that she is fiercely dedicated and loyal.”

Another source, a Trump ally close to the President and the Trump family, told The Daily Wire: “Stephanie Grisham is a favorite of Trump loyalists, many in the national press corps, and most important, the Trump family. The First Lady loves Stephanie’s tenacity and loyalty, and President Trump has remarked that he respects Stephanie’s ability to stay cool under pressure and manage the toughest of news cycles. Stephanie might not be the first name that comes to mind for this role, but she’s the one person inside or outside the building who everyone nods their head and says, ‘She’d be great.'”

A third source, who is a former high-level Trump administration official, told The Daily Wire: “Stephanie is one of the last remaining Trump ‘originals’ in the White House. She’s been with him since the beginning, is unquestionably loyal and has the respect of the press corps. She’d be a total home run as press secretary — both for the President and his supporters.”

In The Post’s report, Sanders spoke highly of Grisham, saying: “During the campaign she developed a good relationship with the president, and that’s carried through. She has developed a great amount of trust from both the president and the first lady, which is a pretty high commodity here. There aren’t a lot of people who have a lot of regular interaction with both of them.”

The Post noted that Grisham is hard-nosed and unapologetic in her defense of the president and highlighted Grisham’s response to Trump mocking MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski over an apparent facial surgery she underwent.

Speaking on Melania’s behalf, Grisham said: “When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.”

The Post noted the following story as an example of how Grisham takes command of a situation:

White House staffers are also learning that Grisham is not someone with whom to tangle. In preparation for Melania Trump’s first solo trip abroad, which she took to Africa this fall, deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel clashed with members of the first lady’s staff. Upon their return, Grisham and the first lady’s chief of staff, Lindsay Reynolds, approached White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly about the issue. When he took no apparent action, Grisham spoke directly to Melania Trump, who in turn spoke to her husband privately. Then, when still nothing happened, Grisham suggested to the first lady a different strategy: Without giving the West Wing warning, Grisham put out a statement: “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”

Within days, Ricardel was out of the White House.

…never before has the East Wing issued a statement that resulted in the dismissal of a member of the West Wing, notes Myra Gutin, a professor of communications who studies the history of first ladies at Rider University in New Jersey.

Tom Horne, the former Arizona attorney general who hired Grisham, said: “She’s a very loyal type of person and when there are unfair attacks she responds strongly.”

One White House official told The Post that “whereas the president will tweet himself and react himself,” Melania’s “got Stephanie.”

President Donald Trump said on Monday that Russia has informed the United States that it has removed most of their people from Venezuela.

Trump tweeted: “Russia has informed us that they have removed most of their people from Venezuela.”

“Russia has withdrawn key defense advisers from Venezuela, an embarrassment for President Nicolás Maduro as Moscow weighs the leader’s political and economic resilience against growing U.S. pressure,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Russian state defense contractor Rostec, which has trained Venezuelan troops and advised on securing arms contracts, has cut its staff in Venezuela to just a few dozen from about 1,000 at the height of cooperation between Moscow and Caracas several years ago, said a person close to the Russian defense ministry.”

Venezuela has been one of the largest buyers of Russian military equipment for well over a decade, as they had a $10 billion contract with Russia.

“The arms trade is inherently political but Russia will generally sell arms to any nation that can afford them – in the past four years, however, Venezuela has struggled to meet its payment obligations,” The Telegraph reported. “Rostec has been moving its people out of Venezuela in the past four months after realizing that the funds have dried up, the source said.”

Vladimir Zaemskiy, Russia’s longtime ambassador to Venezuela, noted how the relationship between Venezuela and Russia had grown over the years in terms of the weapons that were sold to the failed South American socialist country.

“This cooperation has grown a lot,” Zaemskiy said. “Among other things, Venezuela has bought assault rifles, multiuse aircraft, helicopters from the Mi-17, Mi-35 and Mi-26 models, T-72 tanks, as well as various anti-aerial defense systems.”

The Hill noted that both National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have “repeatedly blamed Russia and Cuba for propping up Maduro’s government.”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reportedly investigating two airports for religious discrimination after they booted Chick-fil-A from their food courts.

The airports — San Antonio International and Buffalo Niagara International — are under investigation by the Department of Transportation after the department received multiple complaints, Fox News reported.

“The Department of Transportation has received complaints alleging discrimination by two airport operators against a private company due to the expression of the owner’s religious beliefs,” the agency said in a statement to Fox News.”The FAA notes that federal requirements prohibit airport operators from excluding persons on the basis of religious creed from participating in airport activities that receive or benefit from FAA grant funding.”

The San Antonio Express-News reported: “Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton launched a separate state inquiry a week after the City Council vote, intended to determine whether the city violated Texas laws. At the time, he encouraged the U.S. Department of Transportation, which oversees the FAA, to look into the matter as well.”

Chick-fil-A has long been a target of the political Left and Democrat politicians who despise the wildly popular restaurant.

The Chick-fil-A restaurant in Buffalo Niagara International Airport was booted after leftist Democrat Assemblyman Sean Ryan urged hospitality company Delaware North and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority to deny the restaurant a place in the terminal.

In a statement to Fox News, Chick-fil-A wrote:

Recent coverage about Chick-fil-A continues to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand. We do not have a political or social agenda or discriminate against any group. More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand. We embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

FOX 8 noted that as the FAA’s investigation takes place, “the ‘Save Chick-fil-A bill,’ as it has been deemed, is headed to the Texas governor’s desk for expected signature. The proposed law would reportedly prevent discrimination based on a person’s religious beliefs and conscience, including biblically based views of marriage.”

Aside from its delicious food and pro-family values, Chick-fil-A has a reputation for going the extra mile when it comes to providing excellent customer service and serving local communities.

Just this week, a Chick-fil-A employee changed a customer’s flat tire in the drive-thru line, according to FOX 8. The customer wrote about the experience on his Facebook page:

Bunch of saints over at the chickfila in east ridge! My tire somehow went flat in the drive through so they rushed out to replace it for me with their hydraulic Jack. They brought my food out to me then after it was done replaced my food with new fresh food so it wouldn’t be cold and put two cookies in there for free! Those people are truly doing the lord’s work over there!

During Hurricane Harvey, an elderly couple called a local Chick-fil-A and asked for help as they were trapped in their flooded home. USA Today reported:

The restaurant manager, Jeffrey Urban, recognized Spencer’s number, and answered the phone at the store. He was the only one able to reach to store because of flooding, according to the company.

He passed on Spencer’s cry for help to a coworker, Cindy Smith. She called her husband, who got his fishing boat and hit the water.

The crew arrived at the Spencers’ home, with two men on jet skis in tow.

After the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida, Chick-fil-A opened the following day, which was a Sunday when the restaurant was normally closed, to serve law enforcement and people who were donating blood to the victims.

President Donald Trump has ordered that the information and underlying evidence that led to the Russia investigation be declassified in a move that could alter the political landscape surrounding Democrats’ moves to potentially impeach him.

In a statement late on Thursday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders wrote:

Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.

In a two-page memo, Trump instructed the intelligence community to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct the following:

Section 1. Agency Cooperation. The Attorney General is currently conducting a review of intelligence activities relating to the campaigns in the 2016 Presidential election and certain related matters. The heads of elements of the intelligence community, as defined in 50 U.S.C. 3003(4), and the heads of each department or agency that includes an element of the intelligence community shall promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review.

Sec. 2. Declassification and Downgrading. With respect to any matter classified under Executive Order 13526 of December 29, 2009 (Classified National Security Information), the Attorney General may, by applying the standard set forth in either section 3.1(a) or section 3.1(d) of Executive Order 13526, declassify, downgrade, or direct the declassification or downgrading of information or intelligence that relates to the Attorney General’s review referred to in section 1 of this memorandum. Before exercising this authority, the Attorney General should, to the extent he deems it practicable, consult with the head of the originating intelligence community element or department. This authority is not delegable and applies notwithstanding any other authorization or limitation set forth in Executive Order 13526.

Sec. 3. General Provisions.

(a) Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This memorandum shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) The authority in this memorandum shall terminate upon a vacancy in the office of Attorney General, unless expressly extended by the President.

(d) This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

(e) The Attorney General is authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

Allies of the president have urged him to declassify the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the FBI used when they first started to surveil the Trump campaign.

The FBI used a Democrat-funded dossier on then-candidate Trump to obtain the FISA warrant, despite the fact that reporting from earlier this month found that “a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media.”

President Donald Trump fired a warning shot at Iran on Sunday afternoon, warning the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism that if they want to fight the United States, that will be the official end to their country.

“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran,” Trump tweeted. “Never threaten the United States again!”

On Saturday, “a top Iranian official taunted the Trump administration with 9/11 imagery Saturday, making a cruel reference to the attacks on the 2001 World Trade Center,” The New York Post reported.

“The [US political] system has an apparently huge body, but suffers from osteoporosis,” Revolutionary Guard head Gen. Hossein Salami told the Fars news agency. “In fact, the US is like World Trade Building that collapses with a sudden hit.”

Late last week, Politico reported that senators who attended a “lengthy classified briefing on Iran” left the meeting saying the threats coming from Iran are “credible” and “urgent.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) described the threats from Iran as a “serious and potentially imminent threat to U.S. forces” and said Trump was correct in moving military assets to the region to be “position to retaliate” if Iran or any of the proxy terrorist groups it supports should launch any kind of attack.

“There are legitimate threats that we are concerned about to American lives, and I think that’s why the preparations have been taken,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-SD) said. “Hopefully, Iran will think better of taking provocative action and doing anything stupid or crazy, but I think we have to be prepared, which is why I believe the administration is taking the steps that they are.”

Former CIA Director David Petraeus warned Iran on Sunday to be “very careful” amid rising tensions in the region “because it’s going to get worse” for them and if they do something stupid, they will receive a very serious response.

“They are going to have to make a decision. Either they are going to have to really tighten their belt and keep tightening, because it’s going to get worse,” Petraeus said. “There are going to be further screws tightening down in maximum pressure campaign and try to grit their teeth and get to November 2020 in hopes that their desired outcome emerges.”

“They’re going to have to be very careful not to overplay their hand and result in some kind of response that is quite punitive,” Petraeus added.

At the beginning of the month, the Trump administration sent a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East to send a “clear and unmistakable message” to Iran in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings.”

“The deployment comes less than a month after the Trump administration designated Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a terrorist organization,” Fox News reported. “The deployment also comes amid the bloodiest fighting in five years between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.”

“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces.”

Last week, several ships were attacked in the Persian Gulf, which a U.S. military assessment and a foreign entity said came from a terrorist group backed by Iran.

This report has been updated to include additional information.
