    We could and should dump him any of the places I and others have suggested at any time and he is now illegally here after he donated money to terrorists.

    Note that he doesn't say that any troops will be sent or that any plans to send them are being discussed. He just said they always might change things one way or another depending on events and their evaluation of them.

    They constantly evaluate the situation, that doesn't mean they are discussing a plan to send any number of troops let alone a specific number. There is no discussion and you twisting things won't change that. The denial was about the story that they were discussing a plan. Yes, Trump sent some troops instead of starting a war after multiple attempts were made to get him to start one.

    Please point to ANYONE supporting indefinite detention, people have said he should be released elsewhere and not here but nobody said he should be held forever. And Strat's complaint was about the insult in the rep message.

    Zippy is fake news. Saying they MIGHT do anything doesn't mean they are discussing doing any particular thing.

    Investigators with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement opened about four times the number of workplace investigations in the year ended Sept. 30 compared with the close of the Obama administration, while starting fewer probes into gangs, weapons and financial crimes, according to new figures the agency provided to The Wall Street Journal. ICE’s focus on workplace enforcement—targeting both immigrants working illegally and their employers—has intensified in the past two years. Homeland Security Investigations, the ICE arm that carries out criminal investigations, opened 6,812 new workplace cases in the 2019 fiscal year, up from 1,701 during fiscal 2016. The agency made 2,048 administrative arrests, primarily of illegal immigrants, up roughly 500 from the year before. ICE carried out one of its most-high-profile investigations in August, raiding several food-processing plants in Mississippi and detaining about 680 immigrants working in the country illegally. President Trump has focused his immigration crackdown on preventing new immigrants from crossing the border illegally and discouraging those who do cross from seeking legal protections such as asylum that allow them to stay and work. The data show that, in the past two years, the administration has also put a greater emphasis on enforcement efforts that make it tougher for illegal immigrants to find jobs. The emphasis on immigration enforcement is new for Homeland Security Investigations, a law-enforcement agency under ICE with a broad mandate to go after international gangs, weapons, drug smuggling and human trafficking. Agents work on cases from bitcoin seizure to art theft. “With ICE, people don’t often make it past the ‘I,’” said Alysa Erichs, the acting executive associate director for Homeland Security Investigations. “We are so much more than immigration.” Agency officials said that, in recent years, some state and local law-enforcement agencies have expressed unwillingness to work with its criminal investigators (Excerpt) Read more at wsj.com ...

    No Discussion on Sending More Troops to Middle East: Secretary of Defense, Trump

    Secretary of Defense Mark Esper became the latest Pentagon official to take aim at reports that additional troops might be sent to the Middle East, calling an anonymously sourced Wall Street Journal report “false.” “As the Department has stated repeatedly, we were never discussing or considering sending 14,000 additional troops to the Middle East. Reports of this are flat out wrong,” Esper said in a statement on Friday, in an apparent effort to clarify remarks to Congress made by a military official the day prior. “DOD will always stand ready to respond to future actions by our adversaries if and when they arise, but the Pentagon is not considering sending 14,000 troops to CENTCOM. This report is false.” The report cited anonymous officials and included no identifying information, such as whether they were military officials or what agency they work for. Department of Defense spokeswoman Alyssa Farah denied the report shortly after it was published on Wednesday, saying, “the reporting is wrong.” She said the United States was not considering deploying 14,000 additional troops. John Rood, the Pentagon’s No. 3 official, told a congressional committee the next day that the story was “erroneous.”

    Santa left an early present in Donald Trump’s stocking — via the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Job creation in November hit a one-year high and marked only the third time in 2019 that the US economy added more than 200,000 jobs in a month. The unemployment rate remained low, although the civilian participation rate dropped slightly. Part of the gain came from the end of an auto-worker strike, but even without that, job creation would have been relatively robust and well over 200K: Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 266,000 in November, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 3.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Notable job gains occurred in health care and in professional and technical services. Employment rose in manufacturing, reflecting the return of workers from a strike. Both the unemployment rate, at 3.5 percent, and the number of unemployed persons, at 5.8 million, changed little in November. (See table A-1.) Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.2 percent), adult women (3.2 percent), teenagers (12.0 percent), Whites (3.2 percent), Blacks (5.5 percent), Asians (2.6 percent), and Hispanics (4.2 percent) showed little or no change in November. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.) The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more), at 1.2 million, was essentially unchanged in November and accounted for 20.8 percent of the unemployed. (See table A12.) The labor force participation rate was little changed at 63.2 percent in November. The employment-population ratio was 61.0 percent for the third consecutive month. (See table A-1.) The revisions also added to the holiday joy, boosting previous job creation numbers by 41,000 over the past two months. That puts the three-month average for job creation at a respectable growth level of 205,000. That also more or less negates the impact of the strike, which took place entirely within that three-month period, meaning job growth has returned to a healthier level at the close of 2019.

    In a positive gesture, China said on Friday that it will waive import tariffs for some soybeans and pork shipments from the United States, as the two sides try to thrash out a broader agreement to defuse their protracted trade war. “The goal (of this move) is to expand purchases and reassure the United States,” said a Chinese source who advises Beijing on the trade talks. “It should be interpreted as a positive signal. Despite the many political difficulties the two sides face, economic and trade cooperation and moves to stop the escalation of the trade war are in the interest of both parties.” U.S. pork exports to China and Hong Kong are already up 47% in volume terms from January to September, even with high duties in place. A second adviser to the Chinese government said exemptions on the products suited Beijing, as they helped meet market demand for such goods while reducing the trade surplus with the United States. “We might as well buy soybeans from the U.S. rather than from Brazil. Brazil is actually selling us what was purchased from the United States and they even hiked the prices up before selling to us. In that case, we’d better just buy from the United States,” she said.

    After analyzing a database containing 3 billion leaked credentials from security breaches, the Microsoft threat research team determined more than 44 million user accounts had a serious security problem. Here's what you need to know. The Microsoft threat research team password analysisThe Microsoft threat research team analyzed billions of login credentials that had been leaked following security breaches. These came from multiple sources, including law enforcement and publicly accessible databases, according to Microsoft. Considering that data breaches are known to have exposed 4.1 billion records in the first six months of 2019 alone, there's obviously plenty of this kind of credential data floating around, and plenty that is traded across dark web markets. Security researchers analyze this breach data, and by so doing, it's possible to get an idea of the most commonly reused and therefore insecure passwords. The Microsoft identity threat research team was also looking for these compromised credentials to cross-check against the Microsoft user eco-system. Across just the first three months of 2019, Microsoft found some 44 million accounts that were reusing passwords found within those breached credentials databases. You might think that 44 million reused passwords, out of more than 3 billion breached credentials, isn't too bad a percentage. Unless you are one of those Azure AD or Microsoft Account holders with the password problem, of course.

    Cracker Jack was usually such a disappointment. You'd tear the open the top of the cheap cardboard box, then pull apart and eat some not-very-fresh popcorn covered in not-very-tasty caramel, along with some peanuts that seemed to have something kind of wrong about them. Then you'd finally get to the "prize" about two-thirds of the way down, which if you were lucky was some kind of cheap plastic lion or bear, but mostly you weren't lucky. Maybe they've gotten better since I was a kid, but the two things I remember most distinctly were a sense of disappointment... and an eagerness to go back for more. The genius of Cracker Jack isn't that they sell caramel-covered popcorn of sometimes dubious freshness. The genius of Cracker Jack is that they sell the thrill of the unknown. "What is the prize? I simply must know!" That's why Cracker Jack -- first introduced in 1896 -- is still around today. How many other name-brand consumer products can you buy right now that got their start near the end of the 19th century? Now imagine the thrill of buying another inexpensive consumer product -- in this case, a baby bouncer from Goodwill -- and finding a Mossberg 715T semi-automatic .22LR rifle inside. And you didn't even have to eat any of those weird peanuts to get to it. That's exactly what happened to a Florida couple shopping for a baby shower present on Sunday. FOX 35 Orlando reports: Veronica Alvarez-Rodriguez said she was attending a baby shower on Sunday, so she stopped by the Goodwill in Valparaiso to pick up a gift. That's where she found a Baby Einstein baby bouncer in an unopened box that appeared to be new. For only $9.99, it was quite a bargain. Alvarez-Rodriguez took the gift to the baby shower where the father-to-be opened the box and said "You guys got me a gun." Best baby shower ever, you say? Indeed. The doubters came out almost immediately on Twitter, and I admit to being one of them at first. It just doesn't seem possible that an AR-style rifle could possibly fit inside that box, which apparently had shrinkwrap on it as though the baby bouncer was still new. And who could mistake the feel of a 5.5-pound steel rifle (more with the fully-loaded magazine that came with it) inside a box for a lightweight baby bouncer? 1. There's no way that fit in that box.

    A Russian village is under siege from at least 56 ravenous polar bears that have gathered on the outskirts of the remote outpost. Remarkable images and footage show how Ryrkaypiy is now in virtual lockdown over the worrying predator invasion. All public events have been cancelled and children were given extra protection as they travel to and from kindergarten and school. Special bear patrols are trying to stop the 'hungry' bears entering residential areas. So far the invasion is on the outskirts of the village - which has a population of 766 - in Russia's easternmost Chuktoka region, where the beasts are feasting on seal carcasses at Cape Kozhevnkov, according to reports.

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, has rented a home in New Hampshire just two months before the first-in-the-nation 2020 presidential primary state votes in February. "I grew up in Hawaii, where Christmas was 80 degrees and a day at the beach, and so being here in the winter, it's just -- the first snow of the year is always fun," she said, according to WMUR-TV in Manchester. Gabbard said she thinks New Hampshire, which votes after Iowa, will be her best chance to break through as a presidential candidate.
