‘People Actively Hate Us’: Inside the Border Patrol’s Morale Crisis: One Border Patrol agent in Tucson said he had been called a “sellout” and a “kid killer.” In El Paso, an agent said he and his colleagues in uniform had avoided eating lunch together except at certain “BP friendly” restaurants because “there’s always the possibility of them spitting in your food.” An agent in Arizona quit last year out of frustration. “Caging people for a nonviolent activity,” he said, “started to eat away at me.”

Book: Alleged Victim of Brett Kavanaugh Does Not Recall Incident | Breitbart: The alleged victim of a previously unreported claim of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh does not actually recall the incident — according to the same authors who published the claim Sunday.

The New York Times‘ Robin Pogrebin & Kate Kelly reported Saturday, in an article that appears in Sunday’s print edition:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)

Beto O'Rourke: 'Hell Yes, We're Going to Take Your AR-15'

Beto O'Rourke: 'Hell Yes, We're Going to Take Your AR-15': During the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke confirmed his plans to take AR-15 and AK-47 rifles from Americans.

Beto O’Rourke was asked if he is ready to support confiscation, and he said, “I am if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield.”

He then elaborated on how certain bullets are meant to operate in military guns, but he never explained that an AR-15 is not a military weapon. It is a civilian, semiautomatic rifle that shoots one round each time the trigger is pulled. The military weapon, an M4, shoots semiautomatic or fully automatic and is designed to handle the heat and stress of being shot on a battlefield. An AR-15 is not.

After inaccurately describing the AR-15, O’Rourke said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Average U.S. FICO Score Hits All-Time High Thanks To Trump Economy

Average U.S. FICO Score Hits All-Time High Thanks To Trump Economy: Americans’ average FICO score has hit an all-time high of 706 on the personal credit rating scale. Ethan Dornhelm, the vice president for scores and analytics at FICO, told CBS News that a score of more than 700 basically qualifies individuals for just about any credit at favorable terms.

FICO scores range from 300 to 850. A score above 700 is considered great, and a score above 760 is considered excellent. This high national credit score may be largely attributed to the strong economy, with its historically low unemployment rate, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Alyssa Milano Admits She Owns Guns In Debate With Ted Cruz – We Love Trump: Sen. Ted Cruz and liberal actress-activist Alyssa Milano followed through with their promise to debate each other on Tuesday, after a Twitter spat over gun rights in America led to them agreeing that they needed to meet in person to discuss the issue.

Needless to say, it was Ted Cruz that made the better points during the debate, but you can give Milano some credit since the whole thing was calm, cool, and collected, overall.

That said, there was one critical moment of the debate that caused all of gun crusader Alyssa Milano’s talking points to fall through the floor, just like that.

“I have two guns in my household for self-defense, just so you know.”

This was Alyssa Milano speaking.
