As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks reported, Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Peter Fonda is calling for Barron Trump to be placed in a cage with pedophiles, children of ICE agents to be threatened, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be stripped naked and whipped in public.
First Lady Melania called Secret Service after Peter Fonda threatened to kidnap her son, Barron
Fox News host of “The Five,” Juan Williams, defended Peter Fonda after he threatened to kidnap Barron Trump and lock him in a cage with pedophiles.
Juan Williams downplayed Peter Fonda’s criminal threat towards the President’s child and dismissed Gregg Gutfeld after he called Fonda’s tweet “disgusting” and said it was just “poorly worded,” which caused a huge backlash from his co-hosts.
Here is an unbelievable statement from Peter Fonda’s rep:
Statement from Peter Fonda’s rep: “Peter wanted to make sure that Melania and Ivanka communicate with the president the dire circumstances of separating mothers and young children. My response is the move was evil same as the Pope.”

Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.
Rice’s order to Daniel was first reported in “Russian Roulette,” a book published in March that details Russia’s meddling in the election.
In the book, authors Michael Isikoff and David Corn reported that Daniel was developing strategies to respond to Russian cyber attacks on U.S. companies and political campaigns. He proposed using what’s known as denial of service attacks to take down Russian propaganda news sites and to attack Russian intelligence agencies.

Update to this story.
TUMWATER, Wash. — An armed civilian who shot and killed a man who had wounded two others Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart is a pastor and a medic, reports CBS affiliate KIRO-TV. Tumwater police say officers were initially responding to a report of a car driving in the wrong direction but, while en route, were sent to a nearby scene of a reported carjacking with shots fired.
There, they found a 16-year-old female victim who’d suffered non-life threatening wounds.
A short time later, at about 5:30 p.m., Thurston County Dispatch began getting calls about shots fired “in or around the Tumwater Walmart and parking lot,” according to police.
They say they found the 16-year-old’s stolen car in the parking lot.
The carjacking suspect, identified by police as 44-year-old Tim Day, went into the Walmart Supercenter and fired shots at a display case, police said. No customers or employees were hit.
Police say the suspect then left the store and tried a second carjacking, in the parking lot, shooting an adult male occupant of the car in the process. That victim was treated for gunshot wounds and airlifted to a Seattle hospital. His condition wasn’t known.
Police say the suspect then tried yet another carjacking in the parking lot, but was approached by two armed civilians. One shot Day dead, authorities said.
The civilian who killed the gunman is a pastor who works with the Oakville Fire Department, where he is a lieutenant and an emergency medical technician, KIRO-TV reports.
If true, it could put Donald Trump and Republicans in a tough spot come November. As the media focus intensifies over Trump’s zero-tolerance border policy and the family separations that result, some of Trump’s most loyal supporters in the evangelical-Christian community have begun distancing themselves from the president. That includes Franklin Graham, which called the practice “disgraceful,” but The Hill reports that Graham’s not alone:
Recent hits on Trump have come from some surprising quarters, including Franklin Graham, an early supporter of the president and the son of the late Billy Graham. Graham called the splitting up of children from their parents “disgraceful” and “terrible” in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network last week.
On Tuesday, another influential Christian leader published an op-ed in The New York Times that jabbed at the policy. Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader, wrote: “We should execute justice, yes. But not with the kind of cruelty we’re reading about from the border with Mexico.”
A third blast came from the Faith and Freedom Coalition, also on Tuesday.
The organization’s founder and chairman, Ralph Reed, wrote that the separations were “heartbreaking and tragic” and “part of the larger tragedy of a broken immigration system that does not reflect our values or our faith.” Reed, however, put the onus on Congress to fix the situation.
Evangelicals have come under tremendous pressure for their support of Trump for the past two years, ever since Trump wrapped up the GOP nomination. The demo remains one of the most doggedly loyal to Trump in poll after poll, in large part due to the personal support of leaders like Graham, Reed, and Vander Plaats, among others. If this crisis begins peeling them off the Trump train, it’s going to get mighty lonely in November.
While this doesn’t pose the same degree of political threat to Trump’s base, the evangelicals picked up some support from Pope Francis today as well. The US Catholic Conference of Bishops had condemned the practice of separating children from their families earlier, and the pontiff explicitly endorsed that position, although Francis added that the problem didn’t start with Trump:
TRUMP COULD END THIS INHUMANE POLICY OF TEARING CHILDREN AWAY FROM THEIR MOTHERS IN “SECONDS”, BUT HE WOULD RATHER PLAY POLITICS WITH THEM. HE SHOULD BE “IMPEACHED”……..Papa Mike
My God. By tomorrow morning Trump will be tweeting police sketches of the Zodiac at him.
Two possible explanations for this bold stroke. One: Compassion, plain and simple. Sure, Cruz is a hardcore border hawk who vowed to oppose legalization of illegals in 2016, but this is different. These are kids, sometimes very young ones. He’s been touched by the photos and heart-wrenching audio of grade-schoolers trapped behind chain-link without mom and dad. Time to act.
The two aren’t mutually exclusive, of course.
“All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers. This must stop. Now.We can end this crisis by passing the legislation I am introducing this week.
“Repeatedly, I have visited detention facilities tragically housing young children. For far too long, children have been the greatest victims of our broken immigration system, with tens of thousands of children who were detained under the Obama Administration and continuing through today, and with far too many of those children facing horrific physical or sexual assault from criminal human traffickers.
BUT HEY, HE JUST WANTED TO BETTER HIMSELF BY COMING HERE

An undocumented immigrant from Honduras has confessed to killing two prostitutes and dumping their bodies on the streets of Miami, police said.
Juan Carlos Hernandez-Caseres, 37, is facing two first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Ann Farrin, 41, and Neidy Roche, 39, after investigators used DNA evidence to connect him to both killings, the Miami Herald reports.
Farrin’s body was found early Wednesday in the 3000 block of Northwest 25th Avenue. Hermamdez-Caseres admitted to police that he picked her up in his car to pay her for sex, but became “enraged” during the act and punched her in the throat and neck. Surveillance footage from the area shows a man getting out of a black car to dump a body on the sidewalk before driving away.
Roche’s body was found three months earlier, on March 2, near Northwest 30th Avenue and Northwest 26th Street. She had head trauma and was found dumped on the side of the road. Detectives noticed similarities in the murders and later nabbed Hernandez-Caseres after getting his DNA from a soda can he used and linking the forensic evidence to the crimes, police said.
This won’t make any headlines in the fake mainstream media.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen joined Press Secretary Sarah Sanders at the White House briefing on Monday to discuss the administration’s position on border security and migrant family separation.
During the media hysterics and abuse Secretary Nielsen dropped this bomb.
It fell flat with the media who were only wanting to use the venue to attack Trump.
Kirstjen Nielsen: So I want to be clear on a couple things. The vast majority, vast, vast, majority of the children who are in the care of HHS right now, 10,000 of the 12,000, were sent here alone by their parents. That’s when they were separated. Somehow we’ve conflated everything.

Illegal immigrants are increasingly posing with children who are not their own in order to try to gain expedited entry to the U.S., multiple sources tell The Daily Caller.
A law enforcement source directly involved in apprehension told The Daily Caller officers are increasingly encountering “family units” of adult males with children of various ages. When law enforcement attempts to debrief the adult males with children, they often cannot answer even the most basic questions about their supposed children. The children also rarely appear to know details of their apparent “fathers.”
The law enforcement source cast doubt on the asylum claims that many of the illegal immigrants appear to parrot, pointing out that the vast majority of those detained are actively trying to evade authorities. Only upon their detention do they offer the exact same credible fear of returning home, most of whom say the phrase in the exact same scripted way.
The scripted manner of answer indicates to authorities that these illegal immigrants have been coached by human trafficking organizations.

Law enforcement officials in Big Wells, Texas are investigating the scene of a car accident where a vehicle full of illegal immigrants crashed on Sunday after being chased by U.S. officials.
Local news affiliates reported that the vehicle was traveling at speeds of over 100 mph when the driver, who is believed to be a U.S. citizen, lost control of the vehicle, which was carrying 14 people.
News 4 San Antonio reports that 12 people were ejected from the vehicle, an action which resulted in at least four deaths. Five people were reportedly taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center while four others were taken to local area hospitals.

Can you change a flat? It amazes me how many today can’t. There’s even a damn commercial on TV about a kid that doesn’t know what a freaking lug wrench is.
When did we become a nation of inept consumers? Fifteen years ago I made a pretty good living as a handyman. I’d charge 15 bucks an hour to straighten pictures and hang curtains, change a gasket in a faucet and unclog a sink.
This was in Florida, and most of my customers were little old ladies with too much money, and no common sense. Which is a fairly prevalent individual in West Palm Beach….
Now I find myself sickened by the reliance of not little old ladies who don’t have any idea how plumbing works, or are too frail to get out and climb up a ladder. These days it’s college ‘kids’ in the prime of their life, raised by ‘helicopter’ parents who are incapable of the simplest tasks. Not because they aren’t smart enough; most of them could out think me I reckon. Nope. It’s because it would never occur to them to do anything requiring skills.
Their privileged thought processes exclude the very possibility that they should actually think HOW to do a thing, but rather, how to arrange for someone ELSE to rescue them. They have been raised to believe they should never feel pain, never be criticized, never lose playing the game of life. If by some unthinkable circumstance they should feel neglected, it’s ALWAYS someone else that’s the cause. And heaven forbid you should try to point to reason and try to explain to them that tires go flat, money runs out, or worse, they should fail due to not even trying! They wouldn’t hear you anyway over the wails of their own lamentation over the UNFAIRNESS of it all.
NO DEAL ( WALL ) NO “AMNESTY”!!
No deal, no amnesty.
A plan to give amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would be triggered by secured funding for a wall along the United States-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned.
The legislation, crafted by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), obtained by Breitbart News gives at least 1.8 million DACA illegal aliens amnesty on the contingency that $25 billion is appropriated for President Trump’s border wall.
The Ryan/Goodlatte bill mandates that $25 billion be appropriated for a border wall to stop illegal immigration at the southern border. That funding “must not have been rescinded or transferred to another account” in order for the DACA amnesty to begin, a summary of the legislation provided to Breitbart News reads.
The amnesty for DACA illegal aliens would begin after five years, allowing for the eligible 1.8 million population to obtain Green Cards through a newly created “Merit-Based” immigration category.
