O’Reilly, Ramos Spar Over Kate’s Law, Illegal Immigration, Trump

Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly and Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos sparred over illegal immigration, Kate’s Law, and Ramos’ confrontation with GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor.” [NOTE: In a later segment, O’Reilly said that the interview with Ramos had to be cut for time, and the entire, unedited interview would be posted on his website, and that Ramos was aware of this.] O’Reilly began by asking, “You don’t want a border wall. You don’t want that. Okay? Why not?” Ramos answered, “It’s a complete[ly] absurd idea, why would you want to build a 1,900-mile wall between Mexico and the United States, if almost 40% of all immigrants come by plane, and they overstay their visas. So, based on some New York Times report, it would cost about $20 billion. So, clearly, Mr. Trump’s problems, and

Krauthammer: ‘Police Have Received’ That Obama ‘Instinctively’ Sides ‘Against the Authorities

Columnist and Fox News Contributor Charles Krauthammer argued, “President Obama’s reaction to every incident where there was race involved…has always been to instinctively side himself against the authorities” “And that’s a message that the police have received” on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. Krauthammer stated, [relevant remarks being around 3:50] “There’s a big difference between somebody shooting innocent people in a church, and shooting police officers. And I do think there’s really a problem where the police have a sense that America isn’t at their back. But what the police chief actually was saying, in his own way, was that it is the president, it’s the authorities who don’t seem to have their back. President Obama’s reaction to every incident where there was race involved, from — starting with Professor Gates in Cambridge, through the Trayvon Martin [case], and all the way through, has always been to

Exclusive: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to Meet with Donald Trump to Discuss ‘Loyalty Pledge’

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Visits His Scottish Golf Course
A source with knowledge of these matters has confirmed to Breitbart News exclusively that, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will meet with Donald Trump “at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan tomorrow afternoon to discuss the ‘loyalty pledge‘” to the Republican party. The source also tells Breitbart News that requesting candidates to sign a pledge has been a topic of discussion and internal debate the the Republican National Committee for several weeks. Politico reported earlier today that the RNC planned a pledge that was designed to “force the front-runner’s hand after his ref”: The Republican National Committee on Wednesday privately reached out to GOP presidential candidates to ask whether they’d be willing to sign a pledge stating they would not run as an independent candidate in the event they fail to win the Republican nomination in 2016. The move is an implicit challenge to Trump, who pointedly refused to rule out a

Every Kid in a Park Kicks Off at Red Rock Canyon

Kids in the Park

Today, we were lucky enough to spend a beautiful summer morning with 65 fourth-grade students from West Preparatory Academy, a Title 1 public school in East Las Vegas, Nevada. The kids were enthusiastic about being outside and going on a hike to explore the stunning desert landscape, Native American rock art and surprise pockets of lush green plants at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, only a 20-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip.

Thanks to President Obama’s visionary Every Kid in a Park initiative, which officially launched yesterday, all fourth graders and their families will be entitled to a free pass for a full year to visit federal lands and waters that belong to all of us. Before our hike, we distributed free passes to some very excited students!

At a time when youth spend more and more of their free time inside in sedentary activities on computers and smartphones and watching TV, this program will help close the gap between children and nature by introducing kids from all backgrounds to our nation’s great outdoors.

Fourth graders across the country can visit the Every Kid in a Park website to complete a short, educational activity to obtain their free pass to more than 2,000 federal sites, including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, marine sanctuaries and other federal lands and waters. The pass is valid for the 2015-2016 school year and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks). Educators can also access educational activities and print passes for their students.

And since we know a big reason why many kids don’t visit public lands and waters is that they can’t get there easily, the National Park Foundation (NPF) – the congressionally chartered foundation of the National Park Service – will award Every Kid in a Park transportation grants to participating federal agencies to help support travel for those kids with the most need.

The Every Kid in a Park initiative is designed to continue beyond just this year, so that every fourth grade child in America will have the opportunity to visit their public lands and waters for free, inspiring the next generation to be stewards of our nation’s shared natural, historical and cultural heritage.

Parks and outdoor spaces are living classrooms, and the awesome students we met today from West Preparatory Academy are well on their way to becoming lifelong learners and champions of America’s treasured landscapes.

Let’s get every kid in a park!
