  3. The Blaze Reports out of Guatemala say that a second migrant caravan, numbering between 1,000 and 2,000 people, is passing through that country on its way to Mexico and eventually the U.S. border. According to Reuters, Casa del Migrante (literally “house of the migrant”), a migrant shelter in Guatemala City, said that more than 1,000 migrants had passed that way from Honduras, before heading to toward Mexico. Local media outlets have reported the number of migrants in this second caravan as being higher than 2,000. The first migrant caravan, which is now reported to have grown to anywhere between 7,000 and 10,000 migrants, is reportedly still 1,100 miles from the United States in Huixtla, Mexico. That first caravan is mostly made up of people from Honduras. What did President Trump say? On Monday, President Donald Trump said in a series of tweets that he was going to begin cutting off foreign aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador after those nations failed to stop the migrant caravan from moving north. The U.S. sent more than $400 million to these three nations in 2016 alone. Trump will need congressional approval to stop any aid payments that have already been approved. ________ Second wave?
  4. The Blaze President Donald Trump criticized the “cover up” of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a statement to a reporter Tuesday, and the State Department said the U.S. would take action against Saudi Arabia. “The worst cover up ever” “They had a very bad original concept,” the president responded. “It was carried out poorly. And the cover up was one of the worst in the history of cover ups.” “Very simple,” he added. “Bad deal. Should have never been thought of,” he explained. “Somebody really messed up. And they had the worst cover up ever.” “And where it should have stopped is at the idea standpoint, when they thought about it,” he continued, “cuz whoever thought of that idea… I think is in big trouble.” “And they should be in big trouble,” he concluded. “OK?” The president didn’t directly put the blame on the regime in Saudi Arabia, but it was the first comment of his on the assassination of the journalist that appeared to criticize the Saudis. Trump called it a “bad situation” but praised the Saudis for investing in the U.S. and creating “thousands” of jobs. He added that he would soon know “everything” that happened with Khashoggi. “The United States does not tolerate this ruthless action” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that there will be measures takenagainst the Saudis that are accused for the murder of Khashoggi, including the revocation of travel visas. “We’re making very clear that the United States does not tolerate this ruthless action to silence Mr. Khashoggi, a journalist, through violence,” Pompeo said in a statement Tuesday. ________ Team Trump responds.

  7. PJ Media Patrick Poole October 23, 2018 The Justice Department has charged a Chicago-area man, Ashraf al-Safoo, with conspiring to materially support ISIS, saying that he led a pro-ISIS media operation. Al-Safoo, a 34-year-old native of Mosul, Iraq, moved to the U.S. in 2008 and later became a naturalized citizen. He took orders directly from ISIS officials. Through social media, he spread propaganda on behalf of the terror group, helping ISIS to recruit and encouraging supporters to conduct terror attacks. A Justice Department press release describes the extent of his online activity: (Snip) (Snip) Guided by al-Safoo, Khattab also encouraged so-called "lone wolf" terror attacks in Western countries. Al-Safoo faces 20 years in prison on the conspiracy charge. The Chicago Sun-Times also reports that al-Safoo's younger brother is serving a 12-year prison sentence for robbing two gas stations and a doughnut shop in 2017, during which one victim was sliced with a knife along the face.

  12. Poll: Ellison Trails GOP Opponent by 7 Points in Minnesota Attorney General Race David Rutz October 23, 2018 Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) trails Republican opponent Doug Wardlow by 7 points in Minnesota's attorney general race, according to a new poll. A Star Tribune/MPR News Minnesota survey found Wardlow with 43 percent support to Ellison's 36 percent, with roughly one in six voters undecided. It represents a 12-point swing from a Minnesota poll last month showing Ellison with a five-point advantage. Ellison is much more of a known entity in the state as a six-term congressman and national profile from being deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Some of the support for Wardlow stems more from opposition to Ellison, the Star Tribune reported. More people said they are aware of Wardlow compared to last month, but nonetheless fewer than half the people who took part in the survey said they recognized his name. Some poll participants who plan to vote for the Republican said their decision is based less on Wardlow and more on opposition to Ellison.

  13. McCarthy’s California Office Vandalized House majority leader posts picture of suspects: 'Does anyone know these two guys?'

Two young men were caught on surveillance camera outside the Bakersfield office, and McCarthy posted photos of the suspects and some of the damage on Instagram, the Daily Caller reports.

  18. Fox News Former President Barack Obama defended his record at a Las Vegas election rally Monday, telling Nevada Democrats to "remember who started" the country's economic recovery after the Great Recession and accusing President Trump of practicing "corrupt politics." Obama came to Nevada to galvanize support for Rep. Jacky Rosen, who is locked in a tight race for the Senate against incumbent Dean Heller. The former president was also joined on stage by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak, who is running against Republican state attorney general Adam Laxalt to replace term-limited GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval. Obama, who won Nevada in 2008 and 2012, railed against the GOP tax law, efforts to repeal ObamaCare, Trump's attacks on the media, his treatment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the separations of immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border and Trump's claim to have turned the American economy around. "When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it. Remember who started it,” Obama said. "I hope people notice that they run things into the ground and we have to come and clean things up." ________ Sorry, Obama, but you didn't start that.
  19. The Blaze Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) wants to give all children $1,000 in federal money at birth to combat economic inequality, and Monday he introduced a bill to do just that, according to The Hill. Booker’s bill calls for an aggressive and expensive attempt to close the gap between America’s richest and poorest citizens, and would be funded by tax increases. “There needs to be a new birthright in our country — universal ‘opportunity accounts’ that give EVERY single American kid a shot at the American Dream,” Booker tweeted. “Everyone deserves economic opportunity — not just the 1%.” What’s the plan? Booker is one of a handful of Democrats many believe will run for the presidential nomination in 2020, and some of those high profile politicians are jockeying for position with lofty policy ideas. Here’s how Booker’s “opportunity accounts” would work: The federal government gives every child a $1,000 savings account at birth The government could pay up to $2,000 in additional funds to the child per year based on family income The government would invest the funds in a low-risk account with approximately 3 percent annual returns After age 18, the money can be accessed and used for certain things, like homeownership or education costs According to Booker’s estimate, the maximum a child could get from this account would be $46,215 by age 18. Children in the highest tax bracket would have $1,681 when they turn 18. ________ Booker's big free money dream.
  20. The Blaze Democrats have long discussed and hoped for a powerful “blue wave” in response to the first two years of President Donald Trump’s administration, a wave that would result in overwhelming Democratic victories in November 2018. As the elections draw nearer, however, those hopes have been significantly diminished — and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) doesn’t believe there will be a blue wave at all. “I happen to not believe that there’s going to be this great blue wave,” Sanders said Sunday, according to The New York Times. “I happen to believe that on election night, which party controls the U.S. House will come down to a very few seats.” Sanders made similar comments during an interview with The Hill that aired Monday. “I know a lot of people talk about this blue wave and all that stuff, but I don’t believe it,” Sanders said. ________ Not so great expectations?
  21. kpax On Monday night in Houston, Donald Trump will dunk on Ted Cruz one last time. Trump will travel to Texas to hold a massive get-out-the-vote rally for Cruz in the final days of a closer-than-expected race against Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D). For Cruz, the rally is born of necessity — polling shows him with a mid-to-upper single digit lead over O’Rourke, but the incumbent badly needs an energized Republican base in order to ensure victory. And no one rallies the Republican base like President Trump. For Trump, it’s the latest example of a former political foe — and one who he attacked (and was attacked by) fiercely — seeking to make peace, with an acknowledgment that, well, standing against him just wasn’t worth it. From Sens. Rand Paul to Lindsey Graham to Cruz, Trump has watched as his fiercest critics have turned into, at least in the case of Paul and Graham, two of his staunchest allies. That willingness to seek political peace speaks to Trump’s total and complete takeover of the Republican Party over the past three years. There is simply no safe political space for Republicans on the wrong side of Trump. Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (R) is retiring because he wrote a book questioning Trump’s grip on the GOP. Retiring Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R) is retiring, at least in part, because he took a hit when he stepped out and criticized some of Trump’s controversial comments. ________ The Ted Trump train.

  23. Power Line Scott Johnson Oct. 22 2018 In my comments on the Minnesota Senate race between appointed incumbent Tina Smith and GOP challenger Karin Housley, I have routinely described Tina Smith as a vacuous metro liberal. How vacuous is she? She declined to debate Housley yesterday evening, letting an empty lectern stand in her place (video below). Smith was a no-show. The lectern improved on Smith’s customary performance. That is pathetic. Will Minnesotans elect an empty lectern on November 6? Al Franken could not be reached for comment. Minnesota readers, please think about supporting Housley’s campaign with a contribution here.

  24. WSJ/Outline David Gelernter October 21, 2018 Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist. For future generations, the Kavanaugh fight will stand as a marker of the Democratic Party’s intellectual bankruptcy, the flashing red light on the dashboard that says “Empty.” The left is beaten. This has happened before, in the 1980s and ’90s and early 2000s, but then the financial crisis arrived to save liberalism from certain destruction. Today leftists pray that Robert Mueller will put on his Superman outfit and save them again. For now, though, the left’s only issue is “We hate Trump.” This is an instructive hatred, because what the left hates about Donald Trump is precisely what it hates about America. The implications are important, and painful. (Snip)
