Perry: Mexico Will ‘Salute’ That Our Border Is Secure, We Can Help Them on Their Southern Border

Republican presidential candidate and former Texas Governor Rick Perry said that Mexico is “not going to have a choice” other than to “salute” that the southern border is secure and “we can also be of assistance to them on the southern border with Mexico” on Wednesday’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox Business Network. Perry discussed border security, after re-iterating that border security is the most important issue that decides all the other issues pertaining to immigration, giving his plan to secure the border using personnel, strategic fencing, and aviation assets, added, “I think that’s one of the things that’s been missing all along, is the will at the White House, the will from Washington, to clearly send a message.

Adam Schefter: Brady Ruling an ‘Embarrassment for the NFL’

schefter
ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter reacted on Thursday’s “SportsCenter” to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game “Deflate-gate” suspension being uplifted by federal judge Richard Berman, calling it an “embarrassment for the NFL.” Schefter noted that the NFL set themselves up for embarrassment because they chose the court to hear the case, but refused to reach a settlement with Brady, which allowed them to fully lose their case that Brady purposefully deflated footballs for game usage. “Both sides, unwilling to compromise, the NFL refused to give ground; the [NFL Players Association] and Tom Brady refused to give ground. Both thought that they had a valid argument and ultimately, in the end, Tom Brady gets the victory over the NFL. That’s an embarrassment for the NFL. The NFL got to pick the courthouse. They chose New York.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Schweizer was asked, “we have a secretary of state. We have a Clinton Foundation. We have money flowing into the foundation while she’s secretary of state, and also arms given — arms embargoes lifted off of pretty bad countries. Is there a connection?” He answered, “I think there is, Sean, I mean, the oldest adage in Washington, DC is follow the money. And Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, as the emails are now confirming, had interlocking, intertwining relationships between the Clinton Foundation and her official duties as secretary of state.
