on immigration. What are they and what
could they mean?

Washington— President Joe Biden is taking a more active role in Senate negotiations over changes to the immigration system that Republicans are demanding in exchange for providing money to Ukraine in its fight against Russia and Israel for the war with Hamas. The Democratic president has said he is willing to make “significant compromises on the border” as Republicans block the wartime aid in Congress. The White House is expected to get more involved in talks this week as the impasse over changes to border policy has deepened and the funds remaining for Ukraine have dwindled.

Not reading the article, my guess is they mean that before Trump can possibly become President again we must pass amnesty for all criminal invaders.

Still, those in government cannot tell the difference between legal immigrants and unnamed border hoppers.

Mulling... meaning how can we convince the stupid voters that we are actually doing something about illegal immigration when we have no intention of stopping it.

Well a lot less than 10% of all borderline generated asylum cases filed by illegal aliens (migrants) result in a grant of asylum to the respondent by immigration judges, and the other 90% are thrown out after the judge found that the asylum application was fraudulent or after the respondent failed to establish eligibility under US immigration laws. Biden and the Democrats know that, and are continuing to flood the USA with illegal aliens under the guise that all Third World origin illegal aliens who are members of minority groups as set out in Democrat identity politics might be able to gain asylum in the immigration courts, so that they all must be allowed into the USA to file for asylum in the immigration courts, no matter that those court dockets are backed up with millions of such borderline asylum cases with new cases not even being scheduled for an initial hearing for many years. In the meantime the illegal aliens according to the Democrats must just be allowed to stay in the USA regardless of the intent of the US immigration laws. In reality there are billions of poor and uneducated foreign peoples now residing throughout the Third World who meet the Biden and leftist and socialist Democrat standard to gain entry into the USA to apply for asylum. That's more than ten times the entire legal population of US citizens now in the USA. Reports are now coming in saying that the Democrats are now instructing the non-governmental organizations who they contract with to supply aid to the masses of illegal aliens now in the USA, to facilitate as many as possible of the illegal alien population being registered to vote in future US elections. If the Democrats succeed in registering large numbers (millions) of illegal aliens to vote in the 2024 presidential election in a "Thank you Joe Biden" stance for allowing them into the USA, just who is going to stop all those illegal aliens from fraudulently casting ballots both by mail with the help of Democrat operatives, and in person on Election Day 2024? Certainly not the wimpy Republicans!

By congress I imagine they are referring to the 5 or so members of the squad and all progressives. While being accurate it omits any push back from the somewhat sane party. Also will not read the propaganda from (Jack)Ass press.

They'll probably agree to let everyone in, but "solve" the illegal aliens problem by handing out citizenship papers and a voter registration at the border to all comers.

The only "change" that will slow the problem down will be to close and lock all of the gates into the country but the goal stated by #8 is at the top of the list. Without being able to vote democrat, the illegal aliens are just a useless bunch of parasites.

Given that Zelensky can ruin Biden, Joe is desperate is make a deal with Congress. I hope the Speaker realizes this and digs in his heels.

Argentine President Javier Milei used his first executive action in the top office on Sunday to dramatically rearrange the federal executive branch, reducing the number of cabinet-level ministries from 18 to nine. Many of the ministries eliminated were folded into new offices, suggesting that their functions will continue with a much smaller office and reduced staff. Three ministries – the General Ministry, the Office of Media and Communications, and the Legal and Technical Office – were elevated to cabinet level. Milei put the General Ministry in the hands of his sister and campaign fixture Karina, which required the signing of a separate executive order to undo limitations on appointing
Biden misnames president’s chopper,

President Biden referred to the presidential helicopter Marine One as “Air Force Helicopter One” Monday — while claiming that Ronald Reagan sent the chopper to take him from Delaware to the DC-area Walter Reed military hospital when Biden had a brain aneurysm in the 1980s. The 81-year-old’s anecdote is, like other biographical details he’s shared in public remarks, not supported by his own autobiography — or by Reagan’s daily presidential diary. “President Reagan was nice enough to send Air Force Helicopter One to take me down, but it couldn’t fly,” Biden told firefighters during a day-trip to Philadelphia, using an incorrect name for the aircraft.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Monday that Iran and Israel have only one thing in common: neither believes in a “two-state solution” for the Palestinians. Other Iranian officials jumped in to clarify that Tehran believes all of Israel should be given to the Palestinians, annihilating the Jewish state. Amirabdollahian told a forum in Doha devoted to the Israel-Hamas war that a state of “Palestine” should be created via referendum, with “only descendants of those who lived there prior to 1948 being permitted to vote.”

Former President Donald Trump has a double-digit lead over President Joe Biden in the key swing state of Michigan, the latest CNN Poll found. The survey showed Trump leading Biden nationally by eight points, 39 percent to Biden’s 31 percent, in a race that includes independent candidates. That gap, however, only grows in individual states such as Michigan, where Trump is now leading Biden by ten points — 50 percent to Biden’s 40 percent. Another ten percent said they would not support either candidate.

I'll start this with my typical poll story advisory: We're a ways out from the election yet, and it's a poll, so always take everything with a grain of salt. But I think this poll is instructive as to the general momentum moving toward former President Donald Trump and away from incumbent President Joe Biden at this point. Plus, the polls are starting to be redundant, with each finding similar things. So that gives them a bit more merit. First, let's start with the Real Clear Politics numbers as of Dec. 11. The RCP average has him up by 2.2. Check out the red ahead in the past month.

Hunter Biden's lawyer filed a motion to dismiss felony gun charges against him Monday, invoking the 2nd Amendment just days after the president's son got slapped with a nine-count indictment for alleged tax crimes. Attorney Abbe Lowell, who is forcefully confronting prosecutors' arguments in both cases, made the filing in federal court in Delaware, where Hunter is accused of lying on a form when purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in 2018 – at a time when he has written he was abusing crack cocaine and other substances. He cited recent court rulings on gun ownership including a recent Appeals Court decision striking down prohibitions on prohibitions on drug users possessing firearms.

Hunter Biden lawyer Abbe Lowell said he was stunned by his client's indictment last week on tax charges – saying prosecutors refused his pleas to get a meeting and accused them of bowing to outside political pressure. Lowell was inside the Wilmington courtroom when an earlier plea deal collapsed that would have dispensed with two misdemeanor tax charges and avoided a separate gun charge through a 'diversion' agreement. On Monday, he fumed about a new indictment brought by Special Counsel David Weiss that has him facing nine counts – while also reviving a skein of damaging information about blowing vast amounts of cash

After the past week's Congressional hearings, the presidents of Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of Pennsylvania are being exposed to an amount of publicity and scrutiny they're not used to and likely wish would go away. As we reported, the trio claimed that calls for genocide against Jews needed to be placed into context before deciding whether they violated student codes of conduct. The backlash was swift, and so was the backpedaling. UPenn's Liz Magill wasn't able to keep her job, though, and Harvard's Claudine Gay might not be far behind. Gay has already had a rough tenure, as investigative journalist Chris Rufo writes:

The Biden administration made two virtue-signaling proclamations at last week’s COP28 conference in Dubai it says will help save the planet from climate change. The policies aren’t likely to change the planet’s temperature by even one-tenth of a degree, but they might just destroy the 21st-century American industrial economy as we know it. First, Team Biden announced it will stop production of all new coal plants in the United States. This comes on the heels of President Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency saying this year it would impose new power-plant emission regulations that are virtually impossible for coal plants to comply with. The bottom line: no more coal. Period.

Following precise IDF and ISA intelligence, the IAF killed the new commander of Hamas’ Shuja'iyya Battalion, Emad Krikae. The previous commander of the Hamas battalion had already been killed by the IDF earlier in the war. Since 2019, Krikae had been the Deputy Commander of Hamas’ Shuja'iyya Battalion. He was previously responsible for anti-tank missile training in the Gaza City Brigade. Kirikae was also part of anti-tank missile fire and terrorist raids carried out inside Israeli territory. Following the elimination of the commander of Hamas’ Shuja'iyya Battalion during the war, Krikae temporarily assumed the position of battalion commander before also being killed by the IDF.

A Texas woman who sued the state to get an abortion for her high-risk pregnancy has left the state to have the procedure, her lawyers have said. Kate Cox, 31, sought an abortion after her foetus was diagnosed with trisomy 18, a potentially fatal condition that doctors said threatened her fertility. A lower court granted permission for an abortion, but the Texas Supreme Court put that decision on hold on Friday. Texas has one of the strictest abortion bans in the country. Abortions in the state are prohibited from the point of conception except in rare cases where the life of the expectant mother is under threat.
