Homeland Security's Jeh Johnson defended President Obama's illegal immigration order before Congress. He said that many fewer illegals are walking across the border now. Last year the U.S. began flying illegal aliens to Mexico, and they use their frequent flyer miles to fly back to San Diego.

The Weather Channel showed mudslides closing Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu amid rainstorms that knocked out cable TV service in Brentwood, Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. Nobody from FEMA showed up. You get the feeling that President Obama just doesn't care about rich white people.

Pope Francis carried a lamb to the Vatican Nativity Scene which the pontiff visited in Rome as the children's choirs sang carols. It's a sacred tableau worldwide. The Nativity Scene outside the Beverly Hills Courthouse shows six lawyers standing around a car wreck.

Charles Barkley defended the police, saying that if it weren't for police protection, black neighborhoods would be the Wild West. It's just impossible to verify. Last year, New York had one of its lowest murder rates in history but that's because they killed the guy who keeps the murder statistics.

Democratic House members of the Congressional Black Caucus concluded their speeches on the House floor about the street riots in Ferguson by raising their arms in the air in the "Don't Shoot" gesture. It was a new low. They've just been sued for copyright infringement by the French Army.

Iran's government announced it'll start awarding gold coins to couples who have babies to try to increase Iran's population. The Supreme Leader wants to double Iran's population to 150 million. If he really wants to increase pregnancies, he should start by legalizing alcohol over there.
