How This Maryland Police Department Is Combating the MS-13 Gang

Two years ago, a suburban Maryland county began to see a dramatic rise in killings attributed to MS-13, an international gang with ties to Central America. In response, the Montgomery County Police Department assigned Capt. Paul Liquorie, a 23-year veteran of the police force, to lead a centralized street gang unit dedicated to stomping out the violence. In an interview with The Daily Signal, Liquorie, 49, director of the department’s Special Investigations Division, described law enforcement’s approach to combating MS-13 in this affluent county just outside Washington, D.C. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Since August 2015, Liquorie said, the county has suffered seven MS-13-related homicides. “The Latino community where MS-13 has a presence is terrified,” Liquorie said. The Trump administration repeatedly has invoked the threat of MS-13, making the gang a central focus of its effort … Read entire article »

Here’s How Far Behind Trump Is on Political Appointments Compared to Obama, Bush

President Donald Trump has begun to move on naming federal judges and will eventually be naming a new FBI director, but more broadly, he remains slow in filling political appointments compared to his predecessors. “The swamp creatures have won the fight. Unless you control the bureaucracy, the bureaucracy controls you,” Robert Moffit says. Trump has made 85 nominations to the Senate at this point in his presidency as of Friday, according to the Center for Presidential Transition, which tracks presidential appointees. In that same period of his first term, President Barack Obama made 212 nominations, President George W. Bush made 161 nominations, President Bill Clinton made 182 nominations, and President George H. W. Bush made 135 nominees by this point. Trump, so far, is leaving key management positions unfilled, said Mallory Barg Bulman, … Read entire article »

In 2014, the U.S. and the European Union levied punitive economic sanctions on Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and subsequent proxy war in eastern Ukraine. New presidential leadership in Washington and Paris have both made clear this year that the sanctions will stay in place until the Kremlin … Read entire article »
